Ariana Grande is leaning on Mac Miller following Manchester attack
Having canceled her Dangerous Woman tour in the wake of the Manchester bombing that killed at least 22 people and injured many more at her concert this week, Ariana Grande has been keeping her boyfriend, Mac Miller, and other loved ones close. "Ariana is completely shocked," an insider tells E! News. "This has really traumatized her. She has a really big support system and has been leaning on a few key people." Mac, whom Ariana embraced as soon as she arrived back in Florida from England, "has been there for her during this time and is the best," says the source. "She loves him and her family likes him as well." Ariana's management team asked in a statement to E! News that the singer's fans 'continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence."
Orlando Bloom's son thinks he can walk across the ocean underwater because of 'Pirates'
Flynn Bloom, the 6-year-old son Orlando Bloom shares with Miranda Kerr, has finally seen his dad in the original "Pirates of the Caribbean" — and his reaction was hilarious. "I was very reluctant, because obviously you want to keep that normalcy and that dynamic, and I didn't want him to know what dad did for a while," Orlando said on "The Tonight Show" this week (via E! News). "But then he started school and I was like, 'Well, older brothers and sisters…' The movie was coming out and they'll talk about it, and I wanted to have that moment of showing him me in 'Pirates of the Caribbean.' So, last summer I was in France. It was on a little TV; it wasn't a big grand screen or anything at all. But I just flicked it on and he was watching it," Orlando recalled. "I had a video camera on him as he was watching. He was like, 'Wait, that's you! What? That's you?' He was a little disgruntled, which I was freaked out about, because I was like, 'Wait! I should have spoken to a child therapist before I even thought about doing this. What was I thinking? This was a bad idea!' And then he loved it. He was like, 'So, wait a second: How long can you hold your breath underwater for? Did you really do that?' Like, 'Yeah, bro! Forever! I could walk from one side of the ocean to the other.' Because he still believes that!" Orlando returns to the his role on Friday, May 26, when "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" hits theaters.
Rosario Dawson gives first interview since the death of her cousin
Live your life to the fullest so there are no regrets at the end. That's the message Rosario Dawson shared on AOL's BUILD series this week in New York. The interview was her first since she found her 26-year-old cousin Vaneza Ines Vazquez unresponsive on May 11 and she used the time to remind listeners that "tomorrow is not guaranteed." "I've been dealing with a lot of loss lately and reconnecting with my family and my friends in a different way. I'm realizing how much I've pulled myself back, and I've been just really humbled by this opportunity tonight," said the actress, who was in town to accept an honor from The Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York, according to E! News. She went on to explain how losing her cousin taught her to "never take anything for granted" and "to constantly be working on yourself and take advantage of every moment." "Tomorrow is not guaranteed and you want to make sure the people that you love know that, and that you're doing things with your time that you're proud of, because it goes by so fast," Rosario said. "It gets really easy to get caught up in the minutiae, but then you're sitting in the Girls Club and you're zooming off into the your own universe and back, and you realize, 'I can be so much bigger and so much more.' We're the only ones who are stopping ourselves from having that." Rosario also said she has plans to enrich her life and improve herself after her loss. "I'm challenging myself now, still. I want to go back to school. I want to keep growing. I want to keep learning. I want to be a better person. I want to manage my time better. I want to be more organized," she said. "My cousin just died, Vaneza, and I'm coming up on the six-year anniversary of my grandmother's passing. And from 75 to 26, you just don't know when your time is. And I just don't want to be in any kind of position where I'm looking back going, 'I should've, could've, would've, didn't, damn!'"

Gwyneth Paltrow prefers running GOOP better to acting right now
If you want to mess with Gwyneth Paltrow, "bring your A game." The GOOP founder shared that sentiment at a recent Fast Company magazine Meeting of the Most Creative Minds event in Santa Monica this week, where she talked about her approach to business at GOOP. "I'm interested in criticism based on fact, not on projections," she said, according to THR. "If you want to f— with me, bring your A game." THR added that Gwyneth is such a fan of that phrase, her friend gave her a gift of matchbooks and cocktail napkins imprinted with the words. She also explained why she doesn't want to be the centrifugal force at GOOP. "As much as I thought 'I can do everything, I can run my company and then go to Louisiana and do a movie,' I can't, especially with having kids there's just no way," she said. "I've been doing little things here and there because … I do think that does help our brand and how we're trying to grow. But I also don't want it to. I want Goop to not rely on me so much, so we're thinking about when we scale, do we need to leverage me for this product line or do we not. If we have a paid asset without me that outperforms one with my face, I do jumping jacks. I grew up in an acting family … but right now, I just like this better."
Billy Bush on leaked Trump tape: 'I didn't have the strength of character' to stop him
On the heels of his first interview since he lost his job at "Today," Billy Bush appeared on "Good Morning America" and talked more about the leaked tape of Donald Trump saying he gets away with kissing and grabbing women because he's a "star." "Based upon the moment that is on that tape, I understand people's reaction. I agree. I also felt that way," Billy said in an interview that aired Wednesday, May 24 (via Us Weekly). "We live in a visual and digital age, so we get this video, this moment, and we react emotionally to it." He went on to say he and the president had "no relationship" after the lewd conversation that was accidentally recorded and leaked during the presidential race. Asked about the Donald's claim that he was "egged on" by Billy "to say dirty and bad stuff," the former "Today" host acknowledged he wasn't blameless in the incident. "I definitely added to the conversation by you know, I was keeping the ball in the air. … To me, it was more braggadocio — his word — and performance. If I had ever thought, I like to think, that there was a grown man sitting in front of me detailing his sexual assault strategy, I would have called the FBI," he asserted. "He wasn't running for president [then]. He was, at the time, the biggest star on television," he continued. Finally, Billy said he played a role in what was said by not putting a stop to it. "I was insecure. I was a pleaser. I kind of remember wanting these celebrities to like me, so that I could keep going in this job," he said. "I should have known better, absolutely. There's no question about that. … People also say, 'You should have stopped it.' I didn't have the strength of character at the time to do that. I wish I did."
Kit Harrington: Donald Trump 'is a con artist'
Add Kit Harrington to the list of celebs who won't support Donald Trump's presidency. "I believe in experts," the "Game of Thrones" star says in Esquire's latest cover story (via Celebitchy). "[It was] annoying when Sean Penn decided to get involved in the Falklands. I was like, 'It has nothing to do with you, Sean Penn," Kit griped. "Mr. Donald Trump — I wouldn't call him President, I'll call him Mister. I think this man at the head of your country is a con artist," he added. "'Thrones' can be used as a metaphor way too much, but if there's one truth, I think, it's that people who really desire power are the people who shouldn't have it."
Jenelle Evans and her mother reaches custody agreement for Jenelle's son
Jenelle Evans scored a partial win in court this week when she was granted visitation rights to her son, Jace. Although the "Teen Mom 2" star's mother, Barbara, will retain custody of the 7-year-old, Jenelle is relieved she'll soon be able to interact with Jace on a regular basis. "I'm not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son anymore and at the moment that's all I care about. [I] just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day but today wasn't the day, sadly," she told E! News. "I'm really happy we could to a decision for Jace but it doesn't change my feelings towards my mom. She still isn't giving up my son to me but I will fight again in the future when the time is right." Jenelle has been fighting her mother for access to her son for more than two years and as she assured E!, she's not ready to quit yet. "I'm happy but devastated at the same time that I didn't take it to trial. But in the world of Jenelle, you learn to pick and choose your battles," she said. "[I will go back] maybe in a year, but I want the judge to see this new order has been in effect and [I've] been complying with it no problems."
Amber Portwood is 'considering' a sex tape deal
Could Amber Portwood be the next "Teen Mom" alum in adult film? Us Weekly reports she and Matt Baier have met with Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven Hirsh about an offer for Amber to make a "sex tape." The terms reportedly include an $85,000 advance and 35 percent of the net revenues, according to Us. Although she's only said to be "considering" the idea at the moment, Farrah has already weighed in on the situation. "They hope to follow in footsteps of mine, the envy of them wanting to be me never fails," Farrah, who starred in a sex tape in 2013, told Us. "I doubt doing a sex tape at 26 is the right direction. It's sad how hard Amber tries to be me."
