ARIANA GRANDE & PETE DAVIDSON ENGAGED – (06/12/2018)

Looks like Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson aren’t wasting any time taking their relationship to the next level. Us Weekly reports the singer and SNL star are engaged after just a few weeks of dating.

“They are a perfect fit. They are not rushing to get married,” a source tells Us. “Their friends are really excited and supportive.”

The source adds that the two are “constantly making each other laugh” and that their moms have already met. “They’ve been very public with their relationship on social media, and they are very in love,” the insider says.

A second source adds that the two were “telling people that they’re engaged” at Robert Pattinson’s birthday party in L.A. on Saturday, while a third source adds, “They are looking forward to a very long engagement together.”

Ariana and Pete made their relationship Instagram-official on May 30th, after dating rumors surfaced a week prior. The two got together after Ariana broke up with rapper Mac Miller, and Pete ended his two-year relationship with Larry David’s daughter Cazzie David.

And Ariana seems to be on cloud nine. Right after the news broke of their engagment, the 24-year-old singer took to Twitter to share a quote from one of her favorite Broadway musicals, Wicked. “Tell them how I’m defying gravity,” Ariana tweeted, but soon after deleted the post.

She later added another tweet that said “i love u sm ok bye” along with a lot of emojis of a monkey with its hands over its eyes.

The news has sent Twitter wild – with some fans loving it and others not so much.

Maroon 5 has recorded a cover of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” as part of a new campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The “Three Little Birds” cover was recorded for Hyundai’s ad campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The soccer tournament kicks off June 14th in Russia.

RON HOWARD VENTS ABOUT ‘SOLO’ BOX OFFICE – (06/12/2018)

Director Ron Howard is not happy about the tepid turnout for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Despite getting positive reviews, the film has struggled at the box office.

Solo earned $176 million domestically in its first 17 days at the box office, less than half of what Rogue One, the previous Star Wars standalone made in the same time frame, according to Indie Wire. 

  • In addition to being a part of one of the most successful movie universes of all time, Solo has quite the cast, starring Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton, among many others. 
  • Howard, noting the slump, took to Twitter to address the issue. 
  • “As a director I feel badly when people who I believe (& exit polls show) will very likely enjoy a movie… don’t see it on a big screen w/great sound.”
  • He also thanked and retweeted messages from fans who loved the movie.
