Ariana Grande Reaction To Manchester Concert Deaths

What a very sad news story day.

Ariana Grande concert goers at her Manchester concert which ended at 10pm UK time on May 22 will from now share the experience of a horrendous event.

And understandably, Ariana is inconsolable, and "in hysterics" after learning at least 19 people have died as a result of a nail bomb exploding in the rotunda area outside the concert, and near a train station.

Some of those dead are young girls, and a terrorism act has not been ruled out.

Sources in contact with the singer tell TMZ Ariana is devastated that young people who came for a good time are now dead and injured - at least 50 are injured.

The article continues:

We're told her next concert -- Thursday in London at the O2 Arena -- is now up in the air for 2 reasons. It may constitute a safety threat, but also, as one source put it, "She's in no condition to perform."
As we reported, Ariana had just left the stage when a nail bomb exploded in the rotunda area near the front door as people were leaving the concert.  Ariana was not hurt.
These are Ariana's most recent Instagram posts. No official statement or social media post has been released or posted as yet.


Ariana Grande has Tweeted 

broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.

Eurovision: Bum VIDEO + 2017 Winner

It's all about the bottom and the Aussie flag at Eurovision.

Nah, not really.

It's definitely ALL about the winner, Portugal - first time winner, too! Well done to Salvador Sobral and his winning song 'Amor Pelos Dois'.

Here is the winning song:

And his first interview:

And... that bum.

BTW, the guy who has bum on show for the world to see... not actually an Aussie.

He is 'serial pest', and actually a journalist: Vitalii Sediuk, described as a Ukrainian media reporter and personality.

Here is THAT clip:

His list of assaults is VERY long, stating with a 1 September 2011 act where he baited singer Madonna at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, handing her a bouquet of hydrangeas knowing she did not like them, then causing her to express her disdain unknowingly in front of the press, creating controversy about her apparent snobbery towards a gift from a fan.

He's also the guy who kissed Will Smith at the premiere of 'Men In Black', where Will slapped him and asked "What the hell is your problem, buddy?"

He's the 'pest' who crashed Adele's Grammy awards moment in 2013, grabbed Bradley Cooper around the legs at the SAF awards. He also buried his face in Leonardo DiCaprio's groin before being removed by security.

At the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, he crawled under the gown of actress America Ferrera as she posed for photographs at the premiere of 'How to Train Your Dragon 2'.

On 25 September 2014, Sediuk allegedly shoved Kim Kardashian nearly forcing her to the ground if not for the assistance of her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier. He later released the following statement:  "I hope Kim is ok and won’t be mad at me as I didn’t mean any harm. Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!"

He also turned up at Valentino's Paris Fashion Week Show, stripped down to G-banger
and hugged singer Ciara before he was pulled away. He was not charged for the incident.

That Miranda Kerr incident, where she attended the Louis Vuitton runway show in Paris, and a boldly dressed Sediuk snuck up and kissed her on the cheek.

Then came the incident where Sediuk snuck up behind model Gigi Hadid and lifted her off the ground, before being elbowed in the face by Hadid. After the incident, he confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that it was indeed him; he claims his motives behind the attack were due to his belief that Hadid is not a true high fashion model. Well okay then...

And now last night: singer Jamala was performing her song, "I Believe in U" when Sediuk ran onto and around the stage whilst flashing the crowd and cameras draped in an Australian flag.

Certainly memorable!

And of course, Isaiah Firebrace (actual surname)!

With his song 'Don't Come Easy', he was GOOD!

Isaiah won the eighth season of 'The X Factor Australia'. He finished 9th. Ironically, the Aussie born singer is of Portuguese decent. Well done, Isaiah!

'The Real Housewives of Sydney': Reunion show VIDEO

Lisa Oldfield, Athena X Levendi, Matty Samaei, Krissy Marsh, Nicole O’Neil, Victoria Rees and Melissa Tkautz return to our screens tonight for part one of the reunion of 'The Real Housewives of Sydney.'

Here is a taster:

How did you react?

Like these people, perhaps? The barometer of TV watchers, the 'Gogglebox' Australia folks?

Here's another snippet from tonight's reunion:

And here's the original trailer:

We also love this article about 'The Real Housewives of Sydney': Top 10 Juiciest Moments.

It starts with:

1. Cape-gate

We got our first hint at just how explosive the Sydney franchise would be when Victoria tossed Athena X’s controversial rope cape into the harbour in episode one. As shocking as it was, it seems most of the women were secretly supportive of the brazen move. “I didn’t expect the cape to go in the water,” admits Matty, “but you know what? I wasn’t a big fan of the cape anyway.” 

6. That napkin moment. 

Never before has a napkin been so powerful! The tension between Athena X and Victoria hit boiling point on the ladies’ trip to Singapore, resulting in the now-iconic napkin assault. When words failed to silence Athena, Victoria flung her napkin, and it hit the artist’s face with an audible thwack. “To be honest, it was unexpected,” Matty says. “Victoria always keeps it really cool, but Athena just kept on going, going, going. I was sitting next to Athena and I could hear that tissue going ‘bang!’”

Read the rest HERE.

'The Real Housewives of Sydney' Reunion screens on Sunday May 14 at 8.30pm EST on ARENA [Channel 105] in Foxtel.
