ABC is launching ‘Bachelor’ spinoff… A new Selena collection… “Pray for Me” claims… Pete Davidson jokes about Ariana Grande… and Memorial souvenirs hit eBay at insane prices
You may THINK you want to watch this, but I don’t think you’ll want to watch this….ABC is casting for a new reality show that’s basically the senior citizens version of “The Bachelor.” The casting page reads, “Now casting Seniors Looking for Love! Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance? The Producers of ‘The Bachelor’ are looking for active and outgoing single men and women IN THEIR GOLDEN YEARS for a new exciting dating show!” If you’ve got a lonely grandma or grandpa — and you don’t mind watching them make out in hot tubs — get them to apply at ABC.com/Casting. And while you’re there, why not apply to be on a bunch of other shows including ‘$100,000 Pyramid” and “Card Sharks”!
Selena fans, listen up! In honor of 25 years of her legacy, MAC Cosmetics just announced their second makeup collection inspired by Selena. The first one came out in 2016 and it included Selena’s signature red lipstick and an eyeshadow palette, and the makeup was named after some of her biggest hits, like “Como La Flor” and “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” The new Selena La Reina Collection will launch in April. We have to wait for the full reveal, but we hear they are bringing back a fan favorite — the Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass in a pearlescent bubblegum pink. You can wear that to the huge Selena tribute concert that happens at the San Antonio Alamodome on May 9, featuring Pitbull, Ally Brooke, and A.B. Quintanilla III & Los Kumbia Allstarz, just to name a few.
The legend lives on. A NEW Selena Quintanilla collection arrives in select markets in April! Stay tuned for more glimpses of shades designed to honour the Queen of Tejano – like Lipglass in Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, back by popular demand. @SelenaLaLeyenda #MACSelena pic.twitter.com/pRsEgeeUsh— MAC Cosmetics (@MACcosmetics) February 25, 2020
Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are being sued for stealing music. A rock band called Yeasayer say Kendrick and The Weeknd stole a “distinctive choral performance” from their 2007 song “Sunrise” for their 2018 hit “Pray for Me” from the “Black Panther” soundtrack. In fact, they say Kendrick and The Weeknd use this stolen bit 8 different times throughout the song. We listened and Yeasayer definitely has a point. In the court papers obtained by TMZ, Yeasayer is demanding a jury trial to determine if they may be compensated for all profits and damages for “Pray For Me.” They’ve also asked for an injunction to block all further sales and airplay of the song.

Pete Davidson has a new Netflix comedy special, “Alive from New York,” and HE GOES THERE. Pete has decided that enough time has passed and his relationship with Ariana Grande is fair game. And as far as people who will criticize him by saying, “‘How ccould you do that? Where did she say this stuff? To her friends? In the confidence of her own home?’ No, she said it on the cover of Vogue magazine.” Pete also joked that he thinks it may be time to leave “SNL” because the cast treats him like he’s stupid. Plus, he’s back-tracking on his apology to Dan Crenshaw — the veteran he mocked for looking like a porn star rather than a candidate for Congress — saying he was forced to do that by his mother who was afraid he was going to be shot in the face for saying that.
In his new #Netflix special, Pete Davidson made several jokes about Ariana Grande after she referred to their engagement as a distraction: “Could you imagine if I did that? My career would be over tomorrow.” https://t.co/EduQBIeR3T pic.twitter.com/zlXPJP8pdq— E! News (@enews) February 26, 2020
Kobe and Gigi Bryant’s memorial was held on Monday. The moment it was over, ticket stubs, shirts, programs and other memorabilia went up for sale on eBay. The average starting bid for the Kobe Memorial bundles are around $3000, but you can “Buy It Now” for $5000. One seller listed an official Kobe shirt in an XL. After receiving 76 bids, it sold for $2025. Most fans were only able to get tickets to the memorial because they won a random drawing. If they were chosen, they had the option to pay either $24.02 or $224 for their ticket, with the money going toward the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.
