DJ Khaled wants LA Reid’s job… Drake and Vanessa Hudgens’ after-party… Kourtney Kardashian’s romance… Katy Perry explains beef with Taylor Swift… and Manchester bombing at Ariana Grande concert
With LA Reid out at Epic Records, DJ Khaled reportedly wants the job. An industry source told Page Six, “He was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’” Page Six’s sources also say that LA may have been fired for being a diva and that the accusation of sexual harassment was just one more nail in the coffin.
Drake blatantly flirted with Vanessa Hudgens during one of his acceptance speeches at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night. Vanessa said during the show that she’d be going to Drake’s after-party, which she did. But AFTER the after-party, Vanessa and Drake reportedly kept the party going with dinner afterwards! Now, there were other celebrities at the dinner, like Kevin Hart and PARTYNEXTDOOR. But sources say Drake and Vanessa were totally into each other. There could be one little problem standing in the way of Drake and Vanessa having a romance, and that would be Vanessa’s boyfriend, Austin Butler. She’s been with him for six years. He couldn’t be there to support Vanessa during her hosting duties at the BMAs because he’s in Australia filming “The Shannara Chronicles.” And you know what they say…When the cat’s away, Drake will sneak in and try to steal your woman.
Kourtney Kardashian has been seeing this young model guy Younes Bendjima since October so this may be more than just a little fling. The two of them have been more public about their romance lately. Right now, they’re enjoying each other’s company in Cannes. Scott Disick can’t let her just let her BE, so he hopped on a plane yesterday to fly out to Cannes with BELLA THORNE!!!
Katy Perry was a guest on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special last night, and he flat-out asked her about her beef with Taylor Swift. And Katy didn’t hold back! She said, “There is a situation…Honestly, it’s really like she started it and it’s time for her to finish it.” Katy says she tried to talk to Taylor about the tension between them before it got out of hand but Taylor wouldn’t speak to her. Katy said, “It was a full shut-down. And then she writes a song about me and I’m like ‘OK, cool, cool, cool. That’s how you wanna deal with it?’” But Katy says that while karma is a B, she’s ready to be done with it. James asks if something as simple as a text from Taylor would end their feud, and Katy said, Absolutely. One hundred percent.”
