1. Ohhh, so THAT'S why Elle King ditched her husband for an Eagles of Death metal concert.
A few weeks ago, while I was biking along Venice Beach and sweating under the scarily strong LA sun, Elle King was in a not so sunny place. She was leaving her husband at the altar for an Eagles of Death Metal concert
. That was enough to make us think there might be something going on at home, but now it's official: she's divorcing her husband Andrew Ferguson. And I know what you might be thinking, "Hubby? How could that be if they were supposed to get married last month?"
Well here's a plot twist, they got secret married
last year, only one week after the proposal. And the proposal happened after only two weeks of dating. So I guess the lesson to be learned here is spend some time with your boyfriend/girlfriend before you marry them, kids, and don't let that crazy rock 'n' roll lifestyle brainwash you into doing somethin' stupid, like tattooing a giant skull on your forehead. Or maybe do it, because then you could totally make it as an extra on the next Pirates of the Caribbean.
King announced the divorce via Instagram along with this statement:
"We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You'll always have my heart. You'll always be my first husband. Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time. Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind."

2. Yes, American Idol is still a thing, and no, Paula Abdul is still not coming back.
I don't love Fox news, but the one thing I gave them props for was finally
canceling the corny-as-hell American Idol
after it's way-too-long run of 15 seasons. When it finally ended, I think I actually felt the Earth let out one giant exhale. It was a weight off of our shoulders; but of course, nothing good lasts forever. After only being off the air for one season, ABC suddenly decided to swoop in and renew the series. So great, now AI
can continue alongside The Bachelor
and Dancing With The Stars.
And to make it even better, the first official judge on the reboot will be Katy Perry
(and by "better" I mean worse). Does anyone remember how catty she was on Season 9?:
Let's just hope Kara isn't the second surprise judge or else there's going to be some serious drama!
3. Taylor Swift has had a secret boyfriend for months.
Alright guys, TayTay Boy Toy update: she's got a new one. Here's the thing, I'm not surprised that she has a new boyfriend, but I'm surprised that she has had
one for a while and we're only learning about it now. After Tom Hiddly Diddly, I guess she wanted to keep the next one a little more private? I don't know, but it's coming off as a bit of a shock to me, since I'm always in the know about who she's smoochin'. I almost feel like I've failed.
says that Swift is over Tom and has moved onto 26 year old actor Joe Alwyn, who still lives with his mom and dad, and The Sun
says "Remarkably, she has been spending days at a time in London disguising herself wearing a wig in a bid to keep the romance under wraps." Another source said, "Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship. But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet." Damn, Taylor's life sounds like it'd be a dope romance/mystery/drama/thriller. I guess that's what she's been trying to tell us through her music the entire time... But I'd rather read about it on TMZ.
What's even more
shocking to me though, rather than the secret bo, is that said secret bo looks strikingly similar
to Taylor. Let's cut the shit: they look like siblings.
Is Tay Tay SO
business savvy that she would actually try to keep all of the money in the family by literally keeping everything
in the family?!
I'm skeptical...And I'm intrigued.
