  • AARON CARTER CLAIMS HE WAS RAPED BY LATE SISTER LESLIE

  • Fri, 20 Sep 2019 01:00:00 EST

    Aaron Carter's twitter rant against his family continues – and it is getting darker.

    The troubled singer took to Twitter with claims that he was sexually assaulted by his late sister Leslie, who died in 2012. He also claimed he was abused by his brother, Nick Carter "my whole life."

    "My sister Leslie suffered from bipolar and took lithium to treat it. She never liked the way it made her feel and when she was off of it she did things that she never meant to do I truly believe that," Aaron began. "I was 10 years old...."

    "My sister raped me from the age of 10 to 13 years old when she wasn't on her medications and I was abused not only sexually by her but by my first two back up dancers when I was 8 years old," he tweeted.

    Aaron also continues to call for sexual assault allegations against his brother Nick to be investigated – and is now branding his brother a "serial rapist," comparing him to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

    Aaron said Nick has "abused" him throughout their lives, sharing a clip of an incident in which he claims his brother broke his nose. He also gave an update about his gun collection, tweeting – and then deleting – that he voluntarily surrendered some as concern over his mental health grows.

    Aaron recently shared on The Doctors that he's been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and bipolar disorder. He also said that he's currently taking a number of prescription medications. He even postponed many of his tour dates until next year so he can get well. A few days later, however, he denied he had mental issues while speaking with TMZ.

    Aaron's claims of abuse come days after Nick had gotten a restraining order against him. According to court documents, Nick was issued a temporary order for protection for himself, his wife, Lauren, his son, Odin, and his mother-in-law and father-in-law on September 17th. The temporary order states that Aaron must stay 100 feet away from the protected parties and is prohibited from contacting, intimidating, threatening or otherwise interfering with them. The temporary order expires on October 16th, and a court hearing is set for that date in Las Vegas, where it will be decided whether or not to issue an extended order of protection.

    Aaron continued tweeting throughout the night – even putting a call out to Wendy Williams, saying: "Hi @wendywilliams When you do your hot topic segment please recognize the 3 girls in Three states who filed police reports against my brother ..#metoo #silencebreaker #recovery."



  • ARIANA GRANDE DROPS HILARIOUS SEQUEL TO 'THANK U NEXT' FOR HER NEW FRAGRANCE

  • Fri, 20 Sep 2019 01:00:00 EST

    Ariana Grande has celebrated the launch of her latest fragrance with a brand-new project on YouTube.

    A month after Ariana's tropical new fragrance, "thank u, next," dropped at Ulta stores she has unveiled a sequel to her viral music video to help promote the new product.

    Following the same opening sequence as her original "thank u, next" music video, the clip shows a series of "high schoolers" disclosing rumors about Ari and the new perfume in a Mean Girls-esque fashion, complete with the cheerleader uniforms from Bring It On.

    "I heard Ariana has a new perfume," gushes Colleen Ballinger, who played a pregnant teen in the original video. Now holding a baby, she says, "Supposedly she uses juicy raspberries in it, so I've only been eating juicy raspberries for months, so my breast milk will taste like her perfume smells."

    "Well I heard she swam with actual mermaids in the Bermuda Triangle, to convince them to give her the velvety musk of their new sea god!" another student exclaims. "We heard how she went to space to find the best pears for her lil' fragrance," says the cheerleader. "She shoulda just come to Compton!"

    Ari, also dressed as a cheerleader, interjects, "Are you sure it was pear? ‘Cause I heard it was coconut." She adds, "Honestly, I'm not the biggest Ariana Grande fan, but I do hear the new fragrance is...somewhat promising."

    "Rumor has it, she put part of her ponytail in it," another student says, as the scene cuts to Ari chopping off a piece of her hair to put into the fragrance.

    Ariana partnered with Luxe Brands to launch the new perfume available at Ulta Beauty. It's her seventh fragrance in a collection that continues to be a fan-favorite.

    "I wanted to make a fragrance that smells related to my first fragrance Ari but more summery, so I revisited Ari's fruity pear and raspberry notes and changed it up by adding some coconut," Ariana said in a statement when describing the fragrance. "I was inspired to design a bottle that represented the message of my song ‘thank u next' – the emergence of the perfume from the broken heart represents moving forward from a challenging chapter."

  • HAILEE STEINFELD RELEASES NEW SONG FROM HER APPLE TV+ SERIES 'DICKINSON'

  • Fri, 20 Sep 2019 01:00:00 EST

    Hailee Steinfeld has released a new song from her latest acting project.

    Hailee is starring in and executive producing Dickinson, an Apple TV+ series about legendary 19th century poet Emily Dickinson. She also co-wrote and sings the song "Afterlife (Dickinson)," inspired by themes of Emily Dickinson's poems, including death and mortality.

    "This record has become one of my favorite songs I've worked on and sonically, it's indicative of the direction I'm exploring with my new music," Hailee says of the track. "There's a line in the song that says ‘immortality is bliss' and it's reminiscent of a lot of Emily's poems," she explains. "She lived during a time where women were forbidden from voicing their opinions and restricted in many ways, including how they dressed."

    The single artwork shows Hailee wearing a corset that's cinched to create an impossibly small waist – she says she wanted to show "how Emily in particular felt constricted and stifled."

    Dickinson's most famous poems include "‘Hope' is the thing with feathers," "Because I could not stop for Death" and "I'm Nobody! Who are you?"

    Dickinson will be available on Apple TV+ November 1st.

Clarkson and Trainor recalled on Thursday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show how they jumped in a photo with Obama during the former first lady's visit to Today. Obama was celebrating International Day of the Girl in October 2018 when she posed for a selfie with model Karlie Kloss, actresses Zendaya and Frieda Pinto, and activist Monica Nyiraguhabwa. Clarkson and Trainor, who were also on stage, leapt in the background. "The best part is like ‘Where's Waldo,' find the two classiest people here. That'd be us in the back," Clarkson said. "Everyone else was meant to be there and we were like, ‘Whatever, we're crashing.'" "Yeah, I yelled at you. I was like, ‘Get in! It's our last chance,'" Trainor recalled. "She was about to leave, so that was it. You're welcome."
