Celebrity Scoop – 04/02/2019


A lot of social media users didn’t find Justin Bieber’s April Fools’ joke funny.

Bieber, 25, took to Instagram Monday to share a caption-less picture of an ultrasound, implying that he and wife Hailey Baldwin, 22, were expecting their first child together.

Bieber took the joke a step further by sharing several pictures of Baldwin touching her bare stomach while surrounded by two gloved medical professionals, in what appeared to be a doctor’s office. “If U thought it was April fools,” he added.

His initial posts were filled with comments of support from friends and fans who congratulated the couple on their “miracle,” while others questioned if this was just an elaborate April Fools’ joke.

Turns out, it was. Bieber later added a third Instagram post of a puppy photoshopped into the ultrasound. “Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS,” he captioned the picture.

While some users called Bieber’s prank “genius,” others said pregnancy is no laughing matter, slamming the singer for insensitivity for couples who struggle to conceive or have lost children.

Just a week ago, Justin wrote a note to fans about focusing on himself right now and putting music on hold so that he can “be the father I want to be.”

ARIANA GRANDE SEEMINGLY COMES OUT AS BISEXUAL IN ‘MONOPOLY’: As promised, Ariana Grande and her pal Victoria Monet released their new collab, “Monopoly,” on Monday. Not only did they drop the new tune, they shared a music video for it as well. In the clip, inspired by viral Instagram star Donte Colley, Ariana and Victoria dance and act silly for the camera together on a rooftop. “I like women and men (yeah),” Ariana sings in the song. Victoria, who came out as bisexual last year, replied to a fan comment on Instagram that said, “IS SHE BI OR NAH.” She responded, “She said what she said.” Fans are taking this as a yes! The song “Monopoly” compares girls to the classic board game in which players buy and trade properties with the goal of one person becoming the richest player.


Singer, YouTuber and Dance Moms alum JoJo Siwa recently played babysitter for North West.

The 15-year-old spent the day with North, the 5-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, at her colorful home.

Siwa shared a video of the experience online. North tried on bows, met Siwa’s dog BowBow, played hide and seek, made glitter slime and climbed inside Siwa’s infamous car. Siwa ended by gifting North a ticket to her concert.

“I had so much fun getting to film with North and @kimkardashian,” she wrote Sunday on Instagram. “Seriously North is SO adorable and awesome, and Kim is one of the SWEETEST people ever!”

Siwa also posted a photo Saturday with North and Kardashian.

“Filming this video ‘Babysitting North West’ was SO MUCH FUN! The video is hilarious and I can’t wait for you all to see it!” she wrote.

Kardashian said that meeting Siwa was North’s dream. “My baby girl North had her dream of life come true! She got to spend the day with @itsjojosiwa #speechless #bff #Only5Once,” she wrote.

In addition to North, Kardashian and West are parents to 3-year-old son Saint and 14-month-old daughter Chicago. The couple confirmed in January they are expecting their fourth child, a baby boy.

In March, Siwa won Favorite Social Music Star award at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. In the spring, she will embark on the JoJo’s D.R.E.A.M. tour, which will visit cities across the United States.

KIM KARDASHIAN TALKS BABY NAMES ON JIMMY KIMMEL: Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian appeared on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! one day after Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered. When Kimmel asked Kim about how she picks her baby names, she said: “I definitely take a family survey. But it’s usually after the baby’s born or we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like. I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects.” Kim is expecting her fourth child with husband Kanye West. She will welcome this child, like her previous Chicago, via surrogate. Their other children are named North and Saint. Kim also said that she has been researching Armenian names, and has considered naming her baby “Rob” after her brother and late father.
