Selena Gomez is still gushing about her beau, Benny Blanco. She’s previously revealed that she said “I Love You” First, and now she’s doubling down. The singer shared a sweet pic of Benny on her Instagram Story and designated him the “Love of my life.” In the photo Selena hugs Benny as the two kiss. The two have been dating roughly a year at this point. Selena revealed the two were an item in December last year…and that they had been dating for six months already by then.

Sabrina Carpenter fans are facing challenges in securing tickets for her “Short n’ Sweet 2025” tour, with some claiming it’s harder than getting tickets for Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour.” Sharing their frustration on X, fans wrote: “How is trying to get Sabrina Carpenter tickets more stressful than getting tickets to the Eras Tour” and “I was in the queue for Sabrina Carpenter tickets for 42 minutes, and when it was finally my turn to select tickets, they threw me to the back of the queue again?!” Despite frustrations and website crashes during the ticketing process, fans are looking forward to the tour, which starts on March 3, 2025 in Dublin and includes several major cities. The tour announcement comes shortly after Sabrina revealed details about her upcoming album, set to release on August 23 with twelve tracks.

Mariah Carey is extending her “Celebration of Mimi” MGM Las Vegas residency with eight more shows in early 2025, from January 31 to February 15. The residency started in April 2024 with eight shows but expanded to add more shows, due to high demand. The show celebrates the 20th anniversary of her 10th album “The Emancipation of Mimi” and includes hits like “Hero,” “Always Be My Baby,” and “We Belong Together.” There are various pre-sales for the tickets today and the general admission sale is set for Friday at 10 a.m. PT.

It’s been two years since the last Helping Hands benefit concert was put together by Metallica, but now they’re doing it again. The 2022 show raised $3-million for their All Within My Hands Foundation, which focuses on workforce education, disaster relief, fighting against hunger, and other causes. This year’s show is set for Friday, December 13th at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, and while the lineup hasn’t been announced, the host has. Jimmy Kimmel has signed up to host the benefit show, and tickets are available starting today. Pre-sales start at 10 am Pacific Time today for Legacy members and 12 pm Pacific Time for Fifth members. General sales are set to go live on Friday.
In August at a to-be-disclosed Los Angeles location, fans and collectors will have a chance to own Michael Jackson’s signed drawings, as several dozen of his works are being auctioned off to the highest bidder, King’s Auctions announced this week.
On August 3 at a to-be-announced location that global auction firm King’s Auctions promises will be an “upscale Beverly Hills venue,” 78 drawings by the late King of Pop will be auctioned. Each drawing by the music sensation was signed by him personally, giving auction winners a piece of both the icon’s and pop music’s history.
Jackson, who died in 2009 at the age of 50 from acute propofol intoxication, was a lifelong fan of fine art and began drawing at a young age. While on tour throughout his career, Jackson would frequently turn to drawing and soon it became a hobby — after all, it’s portable.
“He was influenced by many art genres, from classical and architectural to pop art and even formal portraiture. He also had a great fondness for London and British customs,” King’s Auctions said in a press release sent to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday.
The auction of this batch of work is unique in that Lot #1 — requiring an opening bid of $1 million — is for the entire collection of 78 pieces. If the reserve price is met, the entire event will be over at once and the complete collection will go to the winning bidder. However, if the reserve isn’t met, the auction will revert to standard protocol in which each artwork is offered individually, the auction house said.
The auction is being conducted in association with King’s Los Angeles branch. Absentee and online live bidding will be available via LiveAuctioneers and preview exhibitions will be held in Beverly Hills and Las Vegas.

Celine Dion will perform Friday at the opening ceremony for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, and organizers have opened the vault for her.
The icon touched down in Paris Monday, and sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, she is getting ready to take the stage Friday.
Our sources say she will be paid handsomely … $2 million!!! By the way, that’s for just ONE song!
In addition to her fee, the Olympics is footing the bill for travel, and we’re told — between jets, her large family, boats and other expenses — “They’re paying a ton of money. Ridiculous amount.”
We’re told she’s “feeling fine.” That’s a big deal because, as you know, she’s been suffering from Stiff-Person Syndrome for years now. It’s a debilitating disease that makes the body seize up — sometimes for hours — and it’s incredibly painful.
