Nicki Minaj shut down a reporter who asked if she 'thrives on drama'... It's the Dredge

DANGEROUS TERRITORY. That, and all the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Nicki Minaj went off on a New York Times reporter who tried to ask her if she loves “drama”. Eeek. Bad move.

In a recent interview, journalist Vanessa Grigoriadis mentioned the beef between her boyfriend Meek Mill and the rapper Drake, and said: “Is there a part of you that thrives on drama, or is it no, just pain and unpleasantness?”

Nicki’s response:

Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama? …To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible… Do not speak to me like I’m stupid or beneath you in any way.

Don’t mess with Nicki Minaj. (New York Times)

Lance Bass says he was sexually harassed during the early days of N*Sync. During an appearance on a US talk show, Bass said that an older man who worked with the group touched them “inappropriately”:

I was even aware then, at 16, that this guy was a paedophile and he was touching me oddly. I mean, with the guys we would talk about [it]… We would joke about it – but it’s not a joking thing. As a kid, it was odd.

Selena Gomez said she had to undergo chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lupus in 2013. The singer/actress took a break from the spotlight in late 2013 to enter a “rehabilitation facility”, with many assuming she was being treated for alcohol addiction.

But in an interview with Billboard magazine, she revealed she was seriously worried about her health:

That was what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke. I wanted so badly to say, “You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re assholes.” I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.
