Ariana Grande Ariana Grande, we’re actually pulling Pete Davison into this one too.

Guys, stop acting like 13-year olds on Bebo, PLEASE. We all know that these pair got engaged after dating for a couple of weeks, and judging by their Instagram comments, they’re absolutely bet into each other.





Vom. I mean, how sweet.

Brendan Gleeson Poor Brendan Gleeson is unfortunately a loser this week because Buzzfeed have just discovered that he’s Domhnall Gleeson’s dad.

HOLD ON. Isn’t the correct form that we’re all amazed that Bill Weasley is Mad Eye Moody’s? And to leave it this long? A slap in the face if there ever was one.


Demi Lovato Demi Lovato released a new song this week which revealed that she’s broken her sobriety after six years.

Happy and free 💗

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

The 25-year-old suffered with addiction to drugs and alcohol in her teens, but recently passed the six year sober mark three months ago. However, in a new song Sober released during the week, Lovato sings:

Mama I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore. Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor.
To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before. I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore.

People have thanked Demi for being so honesty about her recovery, and wished her well on getting help and on the right path again.

The presenter is campaigning for the act to be made illegal. Speaking on Lorraine during the week to speak out about the fact that charges can’t be pressed against upskirting photographers.

It’s a power thing. It’s demeaning women, it’s degrading women, and you can wear a short skirt if you want. That is not an invitation to have a picture taken up your skirt.

Say it louder for those in the back.

McCartney took James on a tour of Liverpool, pointing out some landmarks from his life.

He got emotional when mentioning his mother, who he claims reassured him in a dream that everything would be OK. It inspired a little track you might have heard of, Let It Be.

All in all, a great Carpool Karaoke.
