Celebrity Scoop – 12/19/2019


Ellie Goulding has confirmed that she was among those to check on a motorist whose car was dramatically pushed sideways down a busy road in west London by a Royal Mail truck.

The 32-year-old star shared a photo of the incident and confirmed that she was in the footage which began circulating on social media.

In the video shared online on Monday, a black Volkswagen is seen being shunted down the A40 by the delivery vehicle. When the truck driver finally stops, he can be heard yelling: “I honestly didn’t see him. I didn’t see him.”

Goulding said the incident was the “craziest thing I’ve ever seen on the road.” “I can’t believe the first instinct of the other drivers who got out was to instantly start filming on their phones and shout abuse at the poor shocked driver, not even checking the other driver was ok. What on earth,” she told her 14.4 million followers via her Instagram Stories.

Goulding told BBC Radio 1 she intervened because “no-one was stopping.” She said: “I think people were desperate to get to work. All these people were just driving on. We just drove up right next to it [the lorry] to be like ‘Mate, you’ve got a car on you’!” The driver of the car later messaged the singer “to just say he was OK,” she added.

Harry Styles is giving insight into his personal new album, Fine Line.

The 25-year-old singer responded on yesterday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to reports the album is about a breakup. “I think I definitely write from personal experience. I think a lot of people do. I think if you want your songs to kind of be honest and connect with people, it’s usually from writing honestly. It’s definitely about just what I was going through at the time, and that’s both good and bad,” he confirmed.

Fans believe several songs on Fine Line are about Styles’ ex-girlfriend, model Camille Rowe. Styles’ song “Cherry” appears to feature a voicemail of Rowe speaking in French. Styles and Rowe dated from July 2017 to July 2018.

Styles also discussed how he posed nude for a poster in the album notes. The photos were taken by British photographer Tim Walker. “I’ve never really done a shoot like this. It was kind of one of those things where he’s like, ‘Okay, this shirt’s not really working, so let’s try it without the shirt.’ And then it’s like, ‘Well, those trousers aren’t really working, so let’s try it without the trousers’,” Harry explained.

Earlier in the interview, Styles was asked about his ex Kendall Jenner, who appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden last week when Styles guest hosted the show. While Ellen attempted to get Styles to reveal anything about his relationship with her, Styles clammed up as he remained tight-lipped. “You and Kendall are really good friends now, right?” Ellen asked, as Styles replied casually, “Yeah, we’ve been friends for a while now, yeah, for like several years.”

“It’s sweet that you all are still really good friends,” Ellen added, grinning.

“Yeah. Yeah, I think so. Right?” Styles answered, smiling. “OK!” he exclaimed and then grabbed a sip of water.

Styles released Fine Line last week. He will promote the album on his Love tour of the U.K., Europe and North America in 2020.
