ARIANA GRANDE TURNS DOWN U.K.’S OFFER OF A DAMEHOOD OUT OF RESPECT FOR MANCHESTER VICTIMS – (01/02/2019)
Ariana Grande has reportedly turned down the offer of a Damehood from The Queen of England in a bid to respect the hundreds of fans who were affected by the Manchester Arena bomb attack.
The British tabloid The Sun claims that Ariana was offered the honorary title out of appreciation for her One Love Manchester concert, which she organized to raise money for the victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing. However, she reportedly turned down the offer, because she felt it might be insensitive to the families of the victims.
A source tells the paper, “Ariana was flattered but said it was too soon. She explained she was still grieving. So were scores of families. She feared some affected might see it as insensitive. The committee wrote to her but she politely said no.”
Another source added, “She was deeply moved and honored. She didn’t decline it as such but explained it was not the right time to accept.”
The mother of one of the victims tells The Sun, “It’s a lovely gesture. She’s right – maybe it is a bit too soon. She’s lovely and would never do anything to hurt any of us.”
Ariana did, however, accept honorary citizenship to the city of Manchester.
JUSTIN BIEBER APOLOGIZES AFTER DISSING JOJO SIWA’S CUSTOM CAR – (01/02/2019)
Justin Bieber has apologized to YouTube/Nickelodeon star JoJo Siwa after dissing a car she received from West Coast Customs as a gift. The BMW is wrapped with rainbow colors, has her name and face on the hood, and “D.R.E.A.M. The Tour” written on the side, along with a picture of a unicorn.
After West Coast Customs reposted a photo of the car, Justin commented on the photo, writing “Burn it,” repeatedly.
JoJo’s mom responded indignantly, “Burn your own things.”
Then, on Sunday, Justin tweeted JoJo and wrote, “I have nothing against you it was the car and the colors I didn’t like I really hope you didn’t think it was malicious or mean spirited.”
JoJo responded, “it’s all good bro! you can perform at my 16th birthday party and we’ll call it good!”
Then JoJo adopted “Burn it” as her new catchphrase, tweeting it repeatedly.
