Thursday night, Ariana Grande accepted Billboard’s Woman of the Year honor with confessional honesty. She told the crowd – dropping several four-letter words — how her musical career seems to be reaching a peak while her personal life is “WTF.” Ariana acknowledged the difficulty following Mac Miller’s overdose death and the abrupt end to her engagement. “I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life.” Ariana bonded with her millions of fans, saying, “If you’re someone who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that.” She ended her acceptance speech with a New Year’s Resolution. “Learning to give to myself the love and forgiveness that I’ve given away so frivolously to men.” (Billboard)

The 2019 Coachella lineup hasn’t been announced yet, although rumors had suggested that Justin Timberlake was set to headline. But now it seems his bruised vocal cords are going to get in the way of that gig. He has cancelled all of his “Man of the Woods” tour dates for the rest of the month to continue his recovery. Apparently the new rescheduled dates conflict with Coachella’s radius clause, forcing Coachella organizers to look for an alternative headliner. Source: Yahoo

Nicki Minaj sneakily inserted herself into the Cardi B and Offset cheating scandal. Nicki hired Offset’s side chick for a music video. Summer Bunni even Instagrammed about her appearance in the “FEFE” music video with Tekashi 6ix9ine. Summer Bunni is dressed exactly like Cardi B and squirts whip cream into her mouth. According to Summer, she quit Offset as soon as Cardi’s baby was born. The music video was shot in June, meaning Summer and Offset might have still been doing it behind Cardi’s back. Offset reportedly asked Summer Bunni to join him for three-way sex with another female rapper, Cuban Doll. (TMZ)
