Celebrity Scoop – 11/01/2018


More than two months after Ariana Grande showed off her injured hand, fans are finally learning how she hurt it – in a haunted escape room with James Corden.

Right in time for Halloween, The Late Late Show with James Corden aired Grande and Corden’s spooky afternoon at 60OUT Escape Rooms that ended with the pop star’s hand in a bandage in August.

“I love Halloween,” the singer started. “I love being scared. I think it’s so much fun. … Usually escape rooms aren’t that scary, but I do love escape rooms.”

As soon as the duo entered the escape room, which was captured on grainy black-and-white footage, Grande had second thoughts. “You told me this was an escape room, not hell,” she exclaimed in the dark room. “Can I go back?”

Faced with darkness, and other beings within the creepy confines, Corden and Grande navigate their way to completing the challenge, but it’s as they attempt their final escape that things get truly dangerous. While being chased by a masked figure, Grande slips and injures her hand, which solves the mystery of the bandaged hand from August.

“That’s not an escape room, that’s one of the seven gates to hell” Grande tells Corden as they drive away.

Ariana was in a much safer space with the BBC, where she recently recorded several of her songs for an upcoming special airing today. Backed by an all-female choir and orchestra, Grande performed several Sweetener songs, including “God Is A Woman.”

Meanwhile, Ariana has covered up another tattoo she got with ex Pete Davidson. In a sentimental Instagram story, the 25-year-old songstress showed off a new tattoo on her hand while thanking her friends who have been supporting her.

The new tat covers up what used to say “Reborn” and now appears to be a feather or a fern.

“I have no words to describe how much i love and am eternally grateful for these human beings who constantly help me turn lemons into lemonade and literally heal me and put me back together,” Ariana captioned the Boomerang. She also included the names of her friends who have been by her side.


The pregnant Meghan Markle’s sartorial choices frequently give fans a double-take—generally for their stunning elegance—but some are wagging their fingers at the Duchess of Sussex for the skirt she chose to wear on the final day of her royal tour of New Zealand, Fiji, et al.

Meghan paired a stunning royal (natch) blue Givenchy sweater with a (gasp!) sheer blue, pleated skirt. 

Was it a wardrobe malfunction or intentional? No one at the palace will say, but Twitter has opinions, with some calling it “stunning,” and haters slamming it as “inappropriate.” Still others were quick to point our that this wasn’t her first slip-up on the royal tour: in Tonga, she wore a red Self-Portrait dress bearing the tag.

REP: KATIE HOLMES IS NOT ENGAGED: Everyone freaked out for a sec when a pic of Katie Holmes wearing a sparkler on that finger hit the ‘net, but no. She is not engaged to her long-time rumored love Jamie Foxx. She’s just getting ready for a role, her rep told Entertainment Tonight.
