Ariana Grande, George and Amal Clooney, and More Celebrities in the News
So much has happened this week. Here’s a roundup of the latest pop culture news.
Ariana Grande cancels her New Year’s show
Ariana Grande was expected to perform at The Chelsea in Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan hotel, but a representative for the venue told Page Six she won’t appear after all.
Grande reportedly canceled because she has bronchitis, reports TMZ. Sources told TMZ she had been under the weather for a week and wasn’t improving. According to the news site, some resale tickets were going for more than $1,000 each at the 3,200-seat venue. Page Six shared this announcement from venue representatives:
Due to unforeseeable health reasons, Ariana Grande has canceled her show at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday, Dec. 29. Guests are able to receive a full refund on tickets through their specified point of purchase. A rescheduled date has not yet been determined at this time.
George and Amal Clooney aren’t going to have any more kids
If you’re waiting for another pregnancy announcement to come from George and Amal Clooney, you’ll be waiting for a very long time. It doesn’t seem like more babies are in the cards for these two. When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if more children are in the future, Amal says they have no plans to add to the family. Amal, who was 39 at the time of the interview, says she’s done because of her age. “I already had them quite late,” she says.
So, how did the couple decide they wanted kids? Surprisingly, George told The Hollywood Reporter he and his wife didn’t even discuss children. “It had never been part of my DNA,” he says. “We didn’t plan on it. We never talked about it until after we were married, which is funny. There was an assumption that we didn’t want them. And then, after the wedding, Amal and I were talking, and we just felt we’d gotten very lucky, both of us, and we should share whatever good luck we’ve got. It would seem self-centered to just have that belong to us,” said George.
Jenna Jameson shares weight loss secrets and tips for the holidays on Instagram
Jenna Jameson has been vocal about her struggle with weight loss. She shared with her fans she’s been on a ketogenic diet and has spoken about how effective it is for losing and maintaining weight. Jameson lost 80 pounds by following the keto diet, which emphasizes eating a low carbohydrate, high fat, and moderate protein diet. The former adult film star gave advice on Instagram for how to stick with your diet during the holidays. Jameson posted this message on her Instagram account:
The holidays are such a tricky time when it comes to staying on track. With family visiting and having no clue what #keto is and all too willing to try to talk you into mashed potatoes and grandma’s cheesecake, it’s so easy to fall off the #ketodiet. I suggest meal prepping!
It’s not exciting, but trust in fact, you will be so elated when you power through the holidays staying in #ketosis. But let me say this… sometimes allowing yourself to indulge is important. When you feel constantly deprived it can lead to major week-long derailments! So, have fun, allow a treat here or there, but most of all treasure the time spent with your loved ones!
