Hello, World—Anthony here bringing you all the pop culture events that had us buzzing this past week. Let’s jump right into the madness.
In news that should surprise no one, Kris and Bruce Jenner announced that they have separated after 22 years of marital bliss. That last part is debatable.
In natural Kardashian fashion, Kris decided to make the announcement on the cover of this week’s US Weekly. “We are living separately, and we are much happier this way,” the former couple said in a joint statement. “But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends, and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
Any true Kardashian fan (not that I’m admitting) would know that Bruce and Kris haven’t been living together for over a year, so none of this is shocking.
First Khloe and Lamar, now Bruce and Kris; is this the end of the Kardashian empire? We’ll just have to wait and see. My guess would be the family is going to take some time to re-group and then find a way to keep us talking about them for years to come.
While the Kardashians can’t seem to get it together, Justin Bieber isn’t fairing too well himself.
TMZ posted a photo of the Biebs at a party appearing to have a blunt in his hand.
Even more shocking about the photo was the fact that a young girl who bears a striking resemblance to cutesy singer Ariana Grande was sitting next to him. SCANDALOUS!
It’s no secret that JB likes to get down with the sticky icky, but who would have thought sweet little Ariana Grande got down like that?
Neither of the two’s spokespeople have commented on the photo or story, so I guess it’s up to us to judge for ourselves.
Regardless, JB better slow down on the piff puffin or those smooth vocals might not be so smooth for much longer. But hey! Isn’t that what Auto-Tune is for?
While we are on the subject of children, Halle Berry welcomed her second child over the weekend.
The 46-year-old banger gave birth to a baby boy with her fiance Olive Martinez.
Earlier reports had suggested the couple named the child Simba. Yes, Simba. Like in the Lion King.
Their publicists, who revealed that the name of the child was Maceo Robert Martinez, quickly squashed that rumor.
That’s it for Pop Addict this week; check back next week to see what all your favorite celebs are up to.
