manchester massacre

We have a tragic update on the Ariana Grande concert bombing from Monday night.

As previously reported in detail, a suicide bomber detonated what authorities are referring to as a “nail bomb” around 10:30 p.m., shortly after the young singer completed her set and bid farewell to her fans.

The explosion is believed to have been set off in the concession area of the Manchester Arena, prompting mass chaos and confusion, with thousands of attendees rushing toward the nearest exit.

The bomber killed himself in the blast, but a 23-year old has been arrested in connection with the incident and ISIS has taken responsibility for carrying it out.

A total of 22 people died in the terrorist act, while 59 others were injured.

And reports have now identified two of the victims.

One was named Georgina Callander.

She was a student at Runshaw College in Leyland and previously attended Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy.

In the wake of her identification, Bishop Rawstorne released a statement mourning the 18-year old.

It reads as follows:

Georgina was a lovely young student who was very popular with her peers and the staff and always made the most of the opportunities she had at the school.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Georgina’s family at this terrible time, and we think especially of her brothers Harry and Daniel who are also former students of the school.

The Evening Standard reports Callander passed away with her mother at her bedside in hospital.

Callander had actually met Grande two years ago and Tweeted ahead of Monday’s show that she was so excited to see the artist in person once again.

Here’s a photo of Georgina posing with Grande in 2015:

Another victim in the attack has been identified as 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos.

She was attending the concert with her older sister and mother, both of whom are …read more

Kailyn Lowry: Post-Pregnancy Dating Plans Revealed!

Kailyn Lowry with Sons

Kailyn Lowry has a lot on her plate these days.

Lowry is expecting her third child; she recently received her bachelor’s degree and is planning on applying to grad programs; and of course, she’s currently filming a new season of Teen Mom 2.

Kailyn has complained about the prospect of raising three kids on her own, and many fans have wondered if she’s looking for a serious relationship.

After months of speculation, we now know that Chris Lopez got Kailyn pregnant, but their time together was reportedly nothing more than a brief fling, and sources say Lopez will only play a small role in the child’s upbringing.

So Kail is officially single.

But from the sound of things, she is not ready to mingle.

According to Radar Online, a new relationship is the last thing on Kailyn’s mind these days.

“Kail doesn’t want to date anyone at all, doesn’t matter the gender,” an insider close to Kailyn tells the site, adding:

“She has no interest in a relationship anytime soon.”

That’s probably for the best, as Kailyn will have her work cut out for her in the months to come.

Asked how she’ll be spending her time instead of dating, the insider replied”

“Focusing on her kids … finding a job in the field she has a degree in.”

Yes, Kail is the latest star of the Teen Mom franchise to begin openly planning for her life post-MTV.

Again, that’s undeniably the smart move.

As popular as the show is now, reality TV fame can end as quickly as it began, and the post-fame years can be brutal.

(For examples, see pretty much everyone from the Jersey Shore who’s not Snooki.)

Kailyn has taken a lot of flak for her decisions this year, but there are few Teen Mom stars who seem to have a better sense of what …read more

Critics SAVAGE Latest Pirates of the Caribbean: Read the Reviews!

Angie han mashable

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will likely make a lot of money at the box office.

Which is good news for star Johnny Depp, who could use every last cent these days.

But critics across the country are positively SLAMMING both Depp and the latest installment in this franchise, which has clearly run out of ideas, humor and any semblance of entertainment.

Consider the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales reviews below before you head out to the theater this weekend…

1. Angie Han, Mashable:

Oh, if only dead men told no tales. Then we might have avoided this fifth Pirates of the Caribbean adventure, which fails to justify its own existence in any way whatsoever.

2. John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter:

Johnny Depp’s cartoonishly louche Keith Richards-meets-Hunter Thompson pirate Jack Sparrow, the globally recognized caricature who by now feels (appropriately) more like a theme-park mascot than a Hollywood swashbuckler. Depp remains wholeheartedly the focus of this fifth Pirates film, and saying the character’s loopy novelty has faded is like complaining that there are maggots in the below-decks gruel: You knew what you were getting when you came aboard.

3. Andrew Barker, Variety:

His performance here is no better and no worse than in his previous two or three outings, though what once was a bracingly anarchic approach is starting to feel a bit old hat, like a standup comic rehashing vintage punchlines for cheers of recognition, rather than laughs.

4. Jim Vejvoda, IGN:

Jack’s schtick is so tired now – it’s been tired since the second film, frankly – but Johnny Depp does seem to be trying a wee bit harder to deliver here than he was in his sleepwalking turn in On Stranger Tides. Still, it is like seeing a classic rock band perform uninspired encores of their biggest hits, …read more
