LADY GAGA ENGAGED – (10/17/2018)
Lady Gaga is engaged to her boyfriend and talent agent, Christian Carino. The 32-year-old singer called Carino her “fiancé” during her speech at the Elle Women in Hollywood event Monday in Los Angeles.
“Thank you to all the loved ones in my life,” she said. “[Manager] Bobby [Campbell], I love you. Everyone at table five. My fiancé, Christian. All the loved ones in my life who take care of my every day.”
Lady Gaga was first linked to Carino in February 2017 after ending her engagement to actor Taylor Kinney. Us Weekly reported in November that Lady Gaga secretly got engaged to Carino over the summer. The singer fueled engagement rumors in December by wearing a massive diamond ring on her left hand.
Lady Gaga was honored alongside Charlize Theron, Keira Knightley, Shonda Rhimes and other influential women at the Elle event.
POST MALONE TEAMS WITH OMAZE TO RAISE MONEY FOR FOLDS OF HONOR – (10/17/2018)
Post Malone is going undercover for a good cause. The rapper is partnering with Omaze to give away a free Bentley to one lucky winner. The winner will also be flown out to LA to take a joyride alongside Post Malone.
Posty is teaming with the charity fundraising site Omaze to raise money for Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of disabled and fallen servicemen and women. The more money you donate, the more chances you’ll get to win the grand prize: a 2018 Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible.
The winner will also be flown to L.A. to take a test drive in their new ride with Post. The car, the flights, the hotel, the car’s taxes and the cost of shipping will all be included as part of the prize.
To promote the contest, Posty filmed a video in which he goes undercover in a record store as a salesman and pranks unsuspecting customers. He offers his own record to a woman for half-price, explaining, “We’re trying to get rid of it ‘cause it sucks. It’s so bad.” After he makes an elderly gentleman read the lyrics to “Rock Star” aloud, the guy tells him, “You need Jesus.”
Post didn’t even attempt to cover up his super recognizable face tats.
Malone, who recently revealed to Jimmy Fallon that he used a rap name generator to create his famous moniker, asked one customer if he has any name suggestions for an aspiring rapper. The customer suggests combining the word “Young” with the last thing he bought, to which Malone hilariously proclaims himself “Young Flashlight.”
Finally, after purposely tripping, falling and spilling albums everywhere, someone who’s in on the joke tells him he’s fired. He takes off his shirt and stalks out the door saying, “I didn’t wanna work here anyways! Ever heard of a smartphone? You don’t need this record store! I’m out!”
