“Cash Me Ousside” tour postponed… Ryan Lochte welcomes a baby boy… Britney Spears is being used… Bill Cosby’s version shared in trial… and Taylor Swift returns to streaming as Katy Perry released new album
If you were hoping to catch Miss “Cash Me Ousside” Danielle Bregoli on her two-date, one not-quite-a-woman tour, you are out of luck. Her manager has announced that the two shows scheduled for Fort Lauderdale and Houston are being postponed because “several new opportunities” have presented themselves. IF those two shows had sold out, her manager says she would’ve pocketed $100K. And Mr. Manager says he has no doubt the tour would have sold out, but now we’ll never know because they canceled the shows the day before tickets were set to go on sale.
Congratulations to Ryan Lochte and his fiancée, Kayla Rae Reid, on the birth of their baby boy. Ryan made the announcement on Instagram: “Never seen a miracle happen before,” Lochte, 32, wrote via Instagram on Thursday. “Until this morning at 5:46 am when CAIDEN ZANE LOCHTE was born. 7lbs, 14 oz, 22 inches. Can’t stop crying from tears of joy. Dream come true!” Ryan says he Kayla Rae literally bumped into each other at Bootsy Bellows last year, grabbed each other’s hands, looked into each other’s eyes and realized, This is it. They’ve been together ever since.
A security firm has revealed that a Russian-speaking hacker group called Turla has been using Britney Spears’ Instagram to distribute malware! What they did was post comments on Britney’s pictures that looked like spam, but they were actually giving directions for malware….something about finding out what URL to use to meet up with a server… I DON’T KNOW WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS!!! But from what I understand, Turla is trying to attack government and embassy websites and they were using Britney’s Instagram because she has 17 million followers who leave thousands and thousands of comments, which made it easy for them to hide the malware.
Yesterday, the jury got to hear Bill Cosby’s version of what happened between him and Andrea Constand. He didn’t take the stand, though. A police officer from Pennsylvania read the transcript of his January 2005 questioning of Bill, shortly after Andrea accused him of drugging and assaulting her the year before. In the transcript, Bill said he didn’t give Andrea 3 mystery pills — it was one and a half tablets of nonprescription Benadryl meant to relieve her “tension.” And yes, Bill said they started making out, but the feelings were mutual. And Bill said he never intended on going all the way because he doesn’t like that. He only likes heavy petting and that’s where it ended. When the officer was being cross-examined by Bill’s attorney, he made it clear that he believed Andrea’s version of what happened. Testimony continues today, and still no sign of Bill’s wife, Camille.
Taylor Swift released her entire music catalog to ALL streaming services at midnight. And what a surprise! That was the same time Katy Perry released her new album, “Witness”!! Of course, one had absolutely nothing to do with the other, at least not according to Taylor’s rep. This is all about the “celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide.” Taylor’s simply thanking her fans by making her ENTIRE BACK CATALOG available. And did I mention it was on EVERY SINGLE STREAMING SERVICE KNOWN TO MANKIND? Taylor has been noticeably silent while Katy’s been on her “Taylor Swift is a mean girl” promotional tour of her new music….until now.
