JLo Loves Cardi B 

Jennifer Lopez told Sway why she decided to team up with Cardi B on their latest song Dinero. She had been following her on Instagram for about four years, and said she's funny… but also because Cardi reminded her of the girls she grew up with.


Julia Louis-Dreyfus Receiving Mark Twain Prize

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is set to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor this year. Last year she set a record, getting her sixth consecutive Emmy for Lead Actress in a Comedy for her role in Veep. The event will take place in DC this year on October 21st. 


GMA Expanding to Third Hour

Good Morning America is expanding its lineup and adding a third hour, much like the Today Show already has. That means that ABC is canceling the Chew, which ran for 7 seasons, to make room for this third hour of GMA. It's worth noting that Mario Batali had been fired from the Chew thanks to sexual misconduct allegations and there are reports that he's under investigation by the NYPD. 


Ariana Grande Stands Up for Self on Social 

Ariana Grande majorly stood up for herself on social media yesterday, and I loved every second of it. Someone had said that Mac Miller's DUI was because Ariana dumped him after he wrote an entire album about her. So Ariana responded (PREACH GIRL!). 


Adam Levine Does Carpool Karaoke 

Adam Levine is on Carpool Karaoke tonight and James Corden released a teaser for it. At one point, a cop pulls up and demands that they pull over so Adam can sing for him… because the cop was mad that they caused so much traffic. HA


Blue Ivy Calls Out Grandma 

Beyonce's mom was filming inside of a theater in Paris the other day, and I guess Blue Ivy was with her. Apparently there had been warnings for everyone not to film anything… and Blue Ivy totally called her grandma out. 


Taylor Spends Time with Sick Fan 

Taylor Swift spent some time with a big fan of hers the other night before her show in Seattle. The 13-year-old girl's name is Cora, and she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma last month so her doctors told her that big crowds were a no-go. So she knew she'd have to skip Taylor's concert. But Cora's friend got the word out, and the local fire department arranged to take Cora in an ambulance to meet Taylor before the show, and Taylor was totally on board. So sweet.
