Dishin’ The Dirt: Ariana Grande Drops “Thank U, Next” Music Video! 


My favorite video of 2018 is definitely “Thank U, Next”! Peep the first 10 minutes where she writes in her “burn book” about Ricky writing “great dancer”...And then to Pete, with his face scribbled, she wrote “HUUUUUUUUUGE” and “sorry I dipped.” LOL Now that’s some tea. 

HITSFam, let us know if you find any other easter eggs that I’m sure we’ll miss! Ariana...DID that! Now give us that album.

Dishin’ The Dirt: Shawn Mendes talks Weed, Hailey and His Sexuality!

Shawn Mendes answers all the questions we’ve wanted to know for like....EVER in Rolling Stone! 

Quick tidbits: Our boy LOVES smoking weed and playing guitar for hours, has no game when it comes to girls, and will never say no to a selfie!

But let’s be honest...Two things that the Mendes army and pop culture aficionados have all wondered about Shawn...Whether he’s gay or not and ironically, his relationship with Hailey Baldwin. Quite a shame because the boy is extremely talented, but I won’t be hypocritical and say that it’s not something everyone wants to know.

On Hailey Baldwin (Bieber):

From the looks of things, Shawn had acknowledged that they were more than just friends but refrains from putting a title...Rather, a “zone of limbo” were his exact words but that he doesn’t have any bad blood. Just one month later, she’s engaged and unfollows him on instagram...He talked about how he handled that:

“I texted Hailey, ‘Congratulations,’ and I really am happy for them. She’s still one of the f*cking coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met.” It seems like he might be about to say something more about how it all went down, but he stops himself. “I think I’m an idiot to not, you know. . . . But you can’t control your heart.”

On his sexuality

In the back of my heart, I feel like I need to go be seen with someone — like a girl — in public, to prove to people that I’m not gay,” he says. “Even though in my heart I know that it’s not a bad thing. There’s still a piece of me that thinks that. And I hate that side of me.”

He admits to searching himself constantly on Twitter/Youtube and reading comments from trolls saying his legs were crossed, or his mannerisms were too “feminine”. He tries to restrict himself on doing or saying certain things but he ultimately felt like he had enough and empathized with people still in the closet... 

‘You f*cking guys are so lucky I’m not actually gay and terrified of coming out,’ ” he recalls now. “That’s something that kills people. That’s how sensitive it is. Do you like the songs? Do you like me? Who cares if I’m gay?

In the end, our boy shares that he was raised with 15 female cousins. So that “braiding hair and painting nails” was not something out of his norm while growing up. He even said he’d put glittery eye make up to make his parents laugh from time to time. 

 “Maybe I am a little more feminine — but that’s the way it is. That’s why I am me.”

That quote above is probably my favorite part of that whole interview! He claims that he will continue to become uninhibited in his music. To read more of his Rolling Stone interview...Check it out here!

Dishin’ The Dirt: Ariana Grande Drags Piers Morgan and its EVERYTHING!!!

Dishin’ The Dirt: Ariana Grande Drags Piers Morgan and its EVERYTHING!!!

When will boys learn...she may be tiny but Ariana Grande packs a BIG punch!

Not sure what crawled up Piers Morgans tush this week but he came for some of our most beloved Females including Ellen Degeneres, Little Mix, and ARIANA GRANDE!

It started with Ellen...

Apparently the British talk show host had a problem with the fact that on Monday Ellen celebrated International Mens Day on her show with this video montage of silly show moments and shirtless photos of some of our favorite #MCMs!

Piers had been ranting all day about the emasculation of men on International Men’s Day and “radical men hating feminists” and decided to blast Americas favorite day time talk host in a juvenile & frankly catty tweet alleging that our girl Ellen is nothing short of a HYPOCRITE...

But he didn't stop at Ellen...he quickly turned his twitter sights to British Pop Divas Little Mix who had been blasting him on BBC radio...

It was at THIS point that Mama Grande got involved...swooping in to defend both Ellen and the girl group and twitter shaming Piers for his tactless and unnecessary negativity towards these women...

And THEN Piers did the unthinkable...he came for Joan & Ari!!!

Thats when Ariana Grande got involved and if theres one thing we’ve learned about Ari over the years it’s that she will defend herself and other women ‘til the end...


Now I would be remiss if I didn't let you know that Piers...bless his heart...tried, and I use the word tried very loosely, to come back but lets be CLEAR...ARIANA GRANDE IS THE QUEEN OF TWITTER CLAP-BACKS so Respectfully Piers...THANK YOU, NEXT!!!

Dishin’ The Dirt: Mini Reunion of The Office on SNL! (video)

In case you missed SNL last night, Steve Carell hosted and had an EPIC open monologue to kick off the show.

As you know, Steve Carell is hella known for his role in the beloved show “The Office”. Clearly, fans have been asking for a reboot since the show ended in 2013 and it seems like he wanted to poke fun at that on SNL. I’m more of a Parks and Rec fan, but this kind of back and forth banter kind of makes me want to watch and see what the hype is about!

It will give you ALL the nostalgia...Check it out here:
