Ariana Grande made history by taking the top three spots on the new Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The 25-year-old singer celebrated Tuesday on Twitter after becoming the first artist since The Beatles in 1964 to rank No. 1, 2 and 3 on the weekly chart.
Grande’s single “7 Rings” holds the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fourth week. Her song “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” debuted at No. 2 this week, with “Thank U, Next” coming in at No. 3.
At first she thought the whole thing was a joke. “i laughed when i saw this bc i thought y’all edited it. thank u from the bottom of my heart. for so many reasons. first time since the beatles huh (and first time for a solo artist?). that’s wild. i thought this was a joke when i saw it i’m not kidding. i love u. so much. always have n will. thank u for everything. i cant believe this is real fr. thanks for making history w ya girl today. and for making me feel loved. bye crying,” she wrote on Instagram with a photograph of the official chart.”
In another post, she included her grandmother’s hilarious reaction and shared a picture her team made her to congratulate her achievement. “nonna just facetimed me and screamed ‘ANYTHING ELSE U WANNA DO?’ my team made me this and it’s pretty so i’m posting it and also i’m so very proud and grateful for everything but i promise i’ll shut the f*ck up after this. congrats team, i love u. thank u so much,” she captioned it.
LADY GAGA & CHRISTIAN CARINO SPLIT – (02/20/2019)
Lady Gaga and her fiancé Christian Carino have split. The singer and the CAA agent are no longer together, Gaga’s rep confirmed yesterday.
Rumors swirled that the two were no longer together when Gaga was pictured without her engagement ring at the Grammy Awards. Carino didn’t attend the ceremony with her, and she also failed to thank him when she won one of two trophies for “Shallow.” And on Valentine’s Day, instead of a couples photo, Gaga showed off her huge new back tattoo.
In the past, Carino had attended other events with Gaga, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The two were confirmed to be a couple in February of 2017. In October of 2018, she referred to him publicly as her “fiancé” at an event in L.A.
Gaga had previously been engaged to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, while Carino had been linked to actress Lauren Cohan from The Walking Dead.
The 32-year-old singer, previously confessed that she has a hard time balancing success and romance.
“It’s a sad day when I’m doing the Super Bowl and I’m so excited to do it, but I can’t help but realize that when I sold 10 million records, I lost Matt [Williams]. I sold 30 million, I lose Luc [Carl]. I get the movie [A Star Is Born], I lose Taylor [Kinney],” Gaga disclosed in her 2017 Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two. “It’s like a turnover.”
MILEY CYRUS PARODIES SHAWN MENDES’ CALVIN KLEIN CAMPAIGN – (02/20/2019)
Miley Cyrus was one of the many celebs wowed by her friend Shawn Mendes’ ab-filled shirtless campaign for Calvin Klein.
But while some stars like Jennifer Lopez – and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez – left thirsty comments on Mendes’s Instagram, Cyrus went a step further. She recreated Mendes’s campaign – and brought back a joke Lady Gaga made in 2013 about being a bad influence.
“Don’t leave your children with Miley,” she wrote over an Instagram Story of herself posing topless in Calvin Klein boxers alongside Mendes’s campaign shot, but to keep things PG, Cyrus covered both of their nipples with red hearts.
Gaga had that same caption when she shared a photo of herself with Cyrus. “DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN WITH LADY GAGA,” she tweeted in September 2013 with a photo of her and a Disney-era Cyrus.
Miley and Shawn took the stage together at the 2019 pre-Grammys MusiCares event honoring Dolly Parton, as well as during the actual award show. They even wore matching vests while rocking out to Mendes’ hit “In My Blood.”
JULIA MICHAELS COLLABORATING WITH JAMES BAY, SINGS ON ‘LATE LATE SHOW’ WITH NIALL HORAN – (02/20/2019)
James Bay announced he is teaming up with Julia Michaels on a brand-new track.
The singer announced the new on his Instagram page, along with a photo of himself and Julia. “This Friday! New song featuring my friend @juliamichaels,” he captioned it.
Julia posted the same pic to her Instagram page, writing, “Got to feature on this guy’s new song coming out soon 🙂 that’s pretty cool.”
Meanwhile, Julia performed her duet “What a Time” with Niall Horan on The Late Late Show with James Corden Monday night. The two had to complete an escape room before getting to take the stage. They cut it close, but they just made it. The full clip of them finding their way out the door through a series of clues has yet to be released. But ahead of the challenge Niall let everyone know “I need a wee” before going in.
The performance began with Julia sitting on a park bench surrounded by flowers. Niall appeared in the audience to kick off the second verse and made his way onto the stage, where they continued the emotional ballad together.
The track appears on Julia’s new Inner Monologue, Part 1 EP.
