Could it be that we finally have an answer to the age-old philosophical debate: Is Justin Timberlake necessary? Judging from the reaction of fans who watched Ariana Grande’s Coachella set last night, the answer is: Who? According to Vulture, as the headlining act for Sunday night, Ariana gave thousands of NSYNC fans the night of their lives by reuniting the band, sans JT.
Ben Affleck just can’t seem to stay single for very long. Us Weekly reports that he and Lindsay Shookus are “are totally back on” on after being spotted together over the weekend. Looks like Lindsay finally got her timing right! Neither are still married like they both allegedly were when they first got together back in the summer of 2017. The two were together for a year before they ended things that fateful summer of 2018. Now they’re both divorced! And now that Ben’s working on his sobriety, and not eating cold Jack In The Box fries off of a Playboy model’s chest anymore, he’s almost a catch. Lindsay was smart to let Jennifer Garner swoop in and do the heavy lifting that got him there for her. Thankless work, that is.
This is how I can tell I’m an old fart now because I remember years ago when The Jonas Brothers performed with Stevie Wonder at the Grammys and I said to myself, “Who the hell are these kids trying to sing with Stevie??!” I was appalled, having no clue who they were. Now, I’m so old that they’ve had the opportunity to go away and come back to announce a reunion tour, and though I’m sure their fans are creaming their jeans with anticipation at this news, I’m still that same oldhead trying to figure out if I know any of their songs.
Ladies, when you’ve got one as hot as Birdman, you don’t let him fly away so easily. The man behind Cash Money Records, which sounds like a parody record company from Fear Of A Black Hat, made a surprise visit to Toni Braxton’s concert on Wednesday in Atlanta. Toni invited Birdman onstage and greeted him with a deep hug. Then, she led him offstage by the hand, leading people to believe that the pair may have reconciled after announcing their split (kinda sorta, neither were explicit about it) earlier this month.
The legion of die-hard McRib lovers should prepare their hearts. No really, you better warn your heart that it’s about to feel like it’s in a really tight choke-hold with a bicep made entirely of sodium and BBQ sauce. But that’s just a minor inconvenience, and I’m sure your heart (and butt) will gladly take one for the team.
USA Today reports the second best news that could come from McDonald’s (the first being that they’re doing God’s work by bringing back McPizza). Just like it has been for decades, the McRib is coming back for a limited time. McDonald’s announced yesterday that the McRib will make its return to more than 9,000 US restaurants, starting immediately.
The last time the McRib saw the light of day was November 2017. So if you haven’t caught on yet, the McRib is clearly an autumnal delight.
In case you’ve never bit into a McRib, it’s a sandwich that was introduced back in 1981. It’s made of a bun, pickles, onions, BBQ sauce, and a pork patty so questionable in shape and texture you’ll be convinced it’s Grimace meat. I’ve only ever had one, because Canada doesn’t really do the McRib. But it’s a great time to bring it back in the US. The midterm elections are less than two weeks away, and what better way to eat your stress than through two to three McRibs on voting day? At the very least, it will reassure and calm you to know that nobody is making a worse decision than you already are.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik ended their two-year-long relationship last month, absolutely crushing the spirits of romantics who root for the love between an emotionless model and emotionless pop star. But it would appear Gigi and Zayn might have had second thoughts about throwing away those two years to the history books.
Two weeks ago, Zayn was seen leaving Gigi’s apartment in NYC in the same clothes he was wearing the night before. A few days later he was seen leaving her place again. TMZ says that on Sunday, Zayn and Gigi were spotted in NYC kissing in a way that would imply his visits to her apartment have involved more than just returning her toothbrush and phone charger.

It would also appear that Zayn has shaved off all his hair, and has a giant tattoo on his head that looks kind of like it was copied from a page torn out of one of those adult coloring books. Zayn is about to get a lot of aunts clutching a pack of markers sitting close to him at the airport from now on.
When Gigi and Zayn first broke up, one of the things Gigi mentioned in her cheesy break-up statement released on Instagram was that when it comes to the future, “whatever’s meant to be will always be.” So a reconciliation wasn’t exactly out of the cards. The Daily Mail points out that Gigi has also been liking Zayn’s posts on social media. Well okay then, there you have it – that’s basically millennial courtroom proof that they’re definitely together again.
