Que the wedding bells! As if 2020 could not get any more “successful” for pop sensation Ariana Grande, “positions” singer announced her engagement to boyfriend, Dalton Gomez on this past Sunday via an Instagram post.

Ari also gave fans a look at the absolutely gorgeous rock that Gomez popped the question with. The beautiful ring and symbol of his commitment to her is stunning and is sure to start a new trend. The ring is rumored to be a 5-6 carat oval diamond that is set alongside a touching family heirloom.

Grande lost her beloved grandfather several years ago. After his death, her grandmother had gifted her a ring that was embellished with a pearl that had formerly been a part of the tie pin he wore. Sources say that Gomez had repurposed that same pearl and created the engagement ring to add an even more sentimental touch.

Gomez, 25, is a luxury real estate agent that hails from Southern California. Grande and Gomez made one of their first public appearances in the music video for “Stuck With U,” which was a collaboration between Grande and Justin Bieber. The music video shared clips of the duo slow dancing. Since then, the couple has tended to keep their love story quite private. Nonetheless, Grande has shared subtle photos of their relationship on Instagram and even made allusions to their ~juicy~ relationship in her most recent album, positions.

Grande’s engagement to Gomez comes after several years of heartache in the romance department. Before the pop sensation was with Gomez, the star dated A-listers like Youtuber Jai Brooks and rapper Big Sean. Most famously, Grande dated Mac Miller. The musical couple even collaborated on some songs together! Though the couple split, Grande’s love for him has been eternal, and despite his passing in 2018, she has continued to pay tribute to him in songs like “Thank You, Next.”

More recently, Grande was engaged to comedian and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, though the couple ended things amidst Miller’s death.

Despite all the hardships, we hope that her budding relationship with Gomez is for the long haul, and that the future brings the couple nothing but love and happiness for many years to come.

Cheers!

6 Celebrities With Surprising Former Jobs

Published

on

Although it may be hard to believe – not all of our favorite celebs were born into stardom. Before they became the faces that we see everyday on TV and magazines, some of these stars came from pretty interesting nine-to-five jobs. 

GIPHY

Check out some of the most surprising pre-fame jobs:

1. Rachel McAdams

Before Rachel McAdams became one of Hollywood’s favorite actresses, she spent her days working at McDonald’s. “[I worked at McDonald’s] for a good three years,” the A-lister told Glamour magazine. “I was not a great employee; I broke the orange juice machine one day.” She even admitted for getting yelled for washing her hands too much!

2. Kayne West

The rapper and fashion icon may have teamed up with Gap stores to release the new Yeezy Gap line – but did you know this isn’t West’s first time working with the brand. As a teen, he worked as a sales assistant at a Gap store in Chicago. “Even though I worked at the Gap, I didn’t get enough hours to get a discount because I was a part-time employee, because I went to high school,” he wrote in an article for the Paper magazine.

3. Channing Tatum

No wonder the Magic Mike star looked so believable on camera – Channing’s had some experience as a stripper when he was just 19 years old! The actor began working at a strip club in Tampa, Florida, eight months after high school. Under the stage name ‘Chan Crawford,’ the 21 Jump Street actor earned $50 a night plus tips.

4. Christopher Walken

Perhaps the most shocking of former celeb job, Christopher Walken worked as a lion Tamer in a circus! Only 16 at the time, Walken would perform with a lioness named Sheba at a touring circus. He said that Sheba was “very sweet, like a dog” in a previous Vanity Fair interview.

5. Madonna

Being a Material Girl can get expensive! So there’s nothing wrong with Madonna taking a part time job as a cashier at Dunkin’ Donuts when she first moved to NYC in 1978 – though it didn’t last too long. In fact, the legendary singer and dancer  was fired after just for one for accidentally squirting a jelly-filled donut over a customer. She said that her Dunkin managers were annoyed at her because she wasn’t “taking the job seriously” in a 2015 interview with Howard Stern.

6. Hugh Jackman

Although you may know him as Wolverine in the X-Men series, Jackman’s commitment to staying buff started long before he landed the iconic role. He worked as a PE teacher at Uppingham School in Rutland in 1987. OMG imagine Hugh Jackman as your gym teacher! Jackman actually ran into one of his former students at the Zurich Film Festival in 2013– and remembered him by name!

Fans Are Holding Harry Styles Accountable: “Harry Wear A Mask”

Published

on

Harry Styles is the latest celebrity to get called out on social media. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen a large increase in fans holding some of their favorite celebs accountable.

How Do Celebs Get “Cancelled”?

Known as “Cancel Culture,” people have used social media to “cancel” celebrities who are not wearing masks, seen traveling, and not social distancing. From Timothée Chalamet to Madonna, many fans have exposed their idols, urging them to remember that there is a pandemic going on.

It appears it is now Harry’s turn to be reminded of that pandemic. Earlier in the month, Harry Styles was spotted with rumored girlfriend Olivia Wilde at the wedding of Jeffrey Azoff (Styles’ agent).

BACKGRID

While fans have mainly been supportive of Styles’ unconfirmed relationship, many were disappointed to see him without a mask at the reception. Later in the week, Styles was spotted again with friends out and about in Santa Barbara, once again without a mask.

TWITTER

To make matters worse, Harry lives in Los Angeles, where there has been a large spike in COVID-19 cases recently. With nearly one in four people testing positive, the number of people being hospitalized are at a record high and many hospitals can’t keep up.

BACKGRID

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment, especially after this image surfaced on January 6th of Styles in a roofless car with 5 people.

“hi @Harry_Styles i love you, you know that. but you’re being so irresponsible right now and it’s incredibly sad to see.” one fan tweeted, in response to the image of Styles in the car.

TWITTER

Other fan asks the public to hold Harry and his friends accountable; “just because he’s harry styles doesn’t mean he should be allowed to do…”

TWITTER

On January 6th, the phrase “HARRY WEAR A MASK” became the 21st top trending phrase on Twitter worldwide. The backlash continued as more photos of Styles were released throughout the day. “People are using gift shops to house Covid-19 patients… don’t be like harry, wear a mask!” another tweeted.

Why Are Styles’ Fans So Upset?

Many fans are calling Harry out because of how outspoken he is on social media, urging others to take Coronavirus seriously. Although he had a tour scheduled for 2020, he decided to reschedule it early in March, tweeting “Anyone who knows me, knows that performing has been my favorite part of working in music. However, during times like these, the safety and protection of touring crew, fans, and everyone else around the world is an immediate priority.”

TWITTER

Since these images have surfaced, stans on Twitter believe that the “Watermelon Sugar” singer is not taking COVID seriously and is being a huge hypocrite.

“[Harry] has preached staying at home & saving lives all throughout the pandemic. he is just being so hypocritical,” one fan tweeted, alongside screenshots of Harry tweeting to following health guidelines.

TWITTER

Despite thousands of disheartened fans, they emphasize they are not trying to “cancel” Styles. “We are not trying to get Harry cancelled, we are simply educating him on the lives that have been taken by not wearing masks…” another tweeted.

We hope Harry and Olivia takes the advice to heart, especially since filming has halted in Wilde’s upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling after a member of the film crew contracted COVID in November.
