Selena Gomez takes the lead… Matthew McConaughey joins Instagram… ‘The Kasey Musgraves Christmas Show’… Gloria Estefan’s two cents… and Is Keanu Reeves off the market?
Selena Gomez has been making music for over a decade, but she hasn’t had a number one single…..until now! “Lose You to Love Me” debuted at #15 last week, but this week it landed in the top spot. The video has already been seen more than 112M times on YouTube, and it was shot entirely on the new iPhone 11 Pro. Huh!
The #LoseYouToLoveMe songwriters & the #Selenators are celebrating @selenagomez‘s first-ever #Hot100 No. 1 🎊

He’s not getting the same amount of hoopla that Jennifer Aniston got when she signed on, but Matthew McConaughey celebrated his 50th birthday by joining Instagram.Matthew said, “I’m a little bit nervous about it because quite frankly, I know I want to have a monologue…I’m not sure I want to have the dialogue. But I’m learning that you have to have the dialogue to have the monologue, just as you have to have the monologue to have the dialogue.” That some deep stuff right there. In less than 24 hours, his first video posted to @officiallymcconaughey has been seen close to 2M times. Among the blue check marks in the comments are Reese Witherspoon who wrote, “Woohoo!! Instagram just got so much BETTER.”
Kacey Musgraves said it started as a small idea over a year ago and now it’s something she’s truly proud of. “The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show” premieres on Amazon Prime on Nov. 29th. Yesterday, she revealed all the celebrities joining her and the setlist. She and Camila Cabello will sing “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Kacey and Lana Del Rey pair up for “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” And Kacey will perform her original song “Present Without a Bow” with Leon Bridges. James Corden is also singing “Let It Snow.” Zooey Deschanel tackles the Hawaiian Christmas song, “Mele Kalikimaka.” And Troye Sivan will join Kacey as they debut a new song called “Glittery.” Kendall Jenner will be on the Christmas special, but she’s not singing. There’s also an appearance by the Radio City Rockettes. And we also get to meet Kacey’s grandma!
You know that saying, “You can’t fire me because I quit!” Now it’s become more common to hear, “I WAS invited to perform at the Super Bowl, but I said no!” Add Gloria Estefan to that growing list. Her husband Emilio told Entertainment Tonight that Jay-Z called his wife and said, “You know something? I’m coming to Miami.” But Gloria said, “I’m not going to the Super Bowl. I don’t want to do it!” Gloria went on to say that the Super Bowl is “a high stress thing” and she’s already been there, done that….TWICE.
Is Keanu Reeves off the market? He and artist Alexandra Grant met at a dinner party back in 2009 and hit it off. They went on to work together, producing and publishing books that he wrote and she illustrated. And it looks like their friendship may have blossomed into something more. Keanu and Alexandra walked the red carpet and held hands at the LA County Museum of Art’s Art + Film Gala over the weekend. This is a huge deal because apparently, in his 35 years in Hollywood, Alexandra is the first woman Keanu has ever brought as a date to a red carpet.
