ARIANA GRANDE RESPONDS TO PETE DAVIDSON’S JOKE ABOUT THE MANCHESTER BOMBING – (07/06/2018)
Ariana Grande is defending, but not agreeing with, fiancé Pete Davidson’s joke about the act of terror at her 2017 Manchester show.
Ariana responded to a fan on Twitter on Thursday. Pete reportedly made the joke regarding Ariana’s fame months before getting involved with Ariana. During a benefit comedy show last fall, Pete told the crowd that Ariana must have realized how famous she is because “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.”
Many people were outraged by this, but when a fan tweeted, “I don’t know why she is still with Pete, like yeah he made that joke a while ago, but like it’s not funny, it’s just rude. This is my opinion,” Ariana jumped on Twitter to explain her thoughts on the matter.
“this has been v tough & conflicting on my heart. he uses comedy to help ppl feel better ab how f-ed up things in this world are. we all deal w trauma differently. I of course didn’t find it funny. it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious but it was unfortunate,” Ari tweeted.
Meanwhile, a source close to Davidson tells People magazine, “The joke was taken out of context. He lost his dad in [the] 9/11 [terrorist attacks] and is close with other victims of violent tragedies. As a way of coping he turns to humor…He’s obviously sensitive to tragedy as he lost his own father and his intention is to just make people laugh.”

Britney Spears is opening up about the guilty pleasure she allows herself to eat on a cheat day. The 36-year-old singer is preparing to go on the road with her Piece of Me World Tour and she chatted with Entertainment Tonight about her diet and exercise routines.
“This round of shows that we are doing on tour, they are back to back, so each show is like… I don’t have time apart, besides flying,” Britney said about keeping in shape. “My show is a workout in itself. It really keeps you strong.”
When it comes to eating, “Sometimes I’m just like, ‘I want a hamburger!’ but when I’m in work mode, I want [to eat] very clean. I want clean chicken and veggies that’s it,” she said. “My stomach is so sensitive, if I have a steak, I will be sick for three days,” Britney added. “The burger is fine, but I have the small burgers from McDonald’s. The happy meal!”

Michael Bublé is expecting his first daughter. The 42-year-old singer said in an interview on Ireland’s Today FM radio’s The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show this week that his wife, actress Luisana Lopilato, is pregnant with a baby girl.
“I’ve got my first little girl coming in three weeks,” he shared. “I actually never said that in public – I’ve got a daughter coming.”
Bublé is parent to two sons, 4-year-old Noah and 2-year-old Elias, with Lopilato, and confirmed the actress’ third pregnancy in March. He said Noah is doing well following his battle with cancer.
