Buckingham Palace Issues Rare Statement On Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Feud Rumors

Following weeks of negative stories about tension between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Cambridges, the Palace has broken their silence on the persistent reports of a royal feud.

Specifically, the Palace is responding to a story which alleges that Kate "slapped down" Meghan for berating members of her team at Kensington Palace right before Meghan and Harry's wedding in May.

"This never happened," the Palace told The Mirror.

Halsey slams The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for creative director’s transgender comments

Despite being a performer at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, that has not stopped outspoken pop singer Halsey for calling out the show for the comments senior creative director, Ed Razek, made about not including transgender models into their show. He told Vogue in an interview, “Shouldn't you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don't think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is.” He would later go on to give an “apology” for his insensitive comments.

She took to Instagram to write, “I have adored the Victorias Secret fashion show since I was young. Performing this year alongside other amazing artists and hardworking models/friends was supposed to be the best night of my year. However, after I filmed the performance, some comments were made regarding the show that I simply cannot ignore. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have no tolerance for a lack of inclusivity. Especially not one motivated by stereotype. If you're on my page because you watched my performance tonight, please allow me to instead direct your attention to GLSEN: An organization that offers services aimed at protecting LGBTQ+ youth.”

She closes with, “And with respect to those youth targeted by these comments in a world where they have been made to feel “other,” I have made a sizable donation in their honor. If you are a trans person reading this, and these comments made you feel alienated or invalidated please know that you have allies. We stand in solidarity, and complete and total acceptance is the only “fantasy” that I support...”

Ricky Martin called out for wearing Native American headdress

¡Híjole, no mames! Ricky Martin was recently called out on Instagram for sharing a photo wearing a Native American headdress with a pair of aviator sunglasses. It didn’t take long for people to rightfully call him out for appropriating Native Americans and their culture.

The Puerto Rican singer has since deleted the image from his Instagram but has made no public apology nor have his reps responded to Yahoo! Entertainment’s request for comment.

Past offenders include Harry Styles, Little Mix, Jessica Simpson & Pharrell Williams just to name a few.

Ariana Grande covers tribute to Pete's dad with the name of Mac Miller's dog

A few months back, news broke out that during the #LoveIsLit2k18 tour Ariana Grande got a matching tattoo of Pete Davidson's dad's badge number. Pete's dad died tragically during 9/11 and Ariana got the numbers 8414 to honor his late father even though she had never met him.

In the latest behind the scenes video of her Thank U, Next music video, Ariana shows off a new tattoo in the same spot only this time it's covered with the name Myron which is the name of her dead ex boyfriend Mac Miller's dog. She even shows it off to the crew saying "Look at my Myron. Guys, look. How cool, right?" Cool to Ariana but Twitter on the other hand has not been so kind.

This isn't the only tattoo the ponytail has covered, she recently was hiding Pete's name with a bandaid on her finger which has now turned into another heart.

Was this a lose/lose situation or is it just straight up trashy? You decide ONTD!

Justin Bieber is getting ready to release new music

Newly married pop star, Justin Bieber is getting ready to release new music and has reportedly been hitting the studio for months while balancing married life with new wife, model Hailey Baldwin.

The Canadian "heartthrob" has apparently been traveling back and forth between Los Angeles and Canada and has been “recording everywhere.”

No word on if and when the Biebs will be releasing new music but his last album Purpose was released in 2015. 3 of the singles went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the album has been certified 4x platinum in the United States alone.

I predict we'll get a single in the spring/summer of 2019 and an album in the fall right before black friday. Are y'all ready for the return of Justin Bieber?

Today On The View, Bush Tribute devolves into Joy v. Meghan

If you missed the view today you missed one of the more nasty segments in recent history.  During what was meant to be a tribute to the life and legacy of recently deceased President George H.W. Bush, co-hosts Joy Behar and Me-again McCain found themselves clashing yet again.  Joy thoughtfully brought up that Bush signed into law the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1991, one of the most sweeping environmental-protections enacted in America, and that we now are facing a president who is trying to undo that legacy.  A clearly-annoyed Me-again told her to keep the discussion on Bush and that she didn't care about Joy's single-issue voting platform (the environment) in what can only be described as an incredibly rude and nasty tone.  Unwilling to let the fight play out in all its glory Whoopi quickly cut to a break.

Who is your fave BA personality? I think mine is Claire, but I love them all

What do you want Hanukkah Harry to bring you this year?

Also fun fact alert, “White Christmas” was written by Irving Berlin, a Jewish New Yorker whose family was secular. They exclusively celebrated Christmas. No Menorah. Big tree. Presents. Santa. It was his favorite holiday. So next time some cracker looks at you askance when you say “happy holidays” or they get mad about a starbucks cup, say, “HAVE A WHITE CHRISTMAS.” They won’t know that you’re supporting Jewish people by saying it or singing it!!

Ariana Grande called out for transmisogyny and blackface by gay publication

- Ariana Grande's new music video 'Thank U, Next' has been called out for promoting "Transmisogyny, heterosexual pride, and blackface"
- They point out Ariana’s backup dancer Scott Nicholson is playing a trans woman where we’re supposed to laugh at him for his feminine mannerisms.
- Take issue with her "modern blackface", by way of heavy bronzing, dark foundation, and digital coloring to make Ariana appear ethnic.
- Say she emphasizes her heterosexuality as a point of pride and empowerment, by making rumors of her lesbianism a punchline and later reinforcing she dates men in her scene with Coolidge.
- The writer of the article received so many death threats from Ariana fans they had to omit his name from the article.

Cardi B Skips Court To Film Naked Music Video: Her Lawyer Says She Is Too Famous For Court

Cardi B is in trouble for allegedly threatening a bartender in Queens and getting two women to attack her. She was supposed to have a court hearing today. The court had already granted her a six-week extension, so the judge was PISSED. But Cardi's lawyer has an excuse explanation: Cardi is too famous for the law:

“You all need to understand this is not about her saying, ‘Screw going to court. I got things to do. I’m important.’ She has managers, she has business people, she has things scheduled. So it’s not like we can just say, ‘Hey you got to come to court on Monday.'”

“As you probably know she is a fairly notable hip-hop artist. My client knew the date but there was a previously scheduled commitment for today and tomorrow.”

The "previously scheduled commitment": Filming a music video in which Cardi is naked painted like a tiger, twerking on a stripper pole and spraying champagne on other women.
