A true fan
A pregnant Pink fan went into labor during the singer's Boston concert and then walked to a nearby hospital to give birth. Angela Mercer began feeling strong contractions shortly after she arrived at Pink's "Summer Carnival Tour" stop at Fenway Park, so she called her doctor. The doc advised her to immediately head to Brigham and Women's Hospital, which was only about a mile away. "With all the traffic surrounding Fenway for the concert, Angela had trouble finding a ride to the hospital. She and her family decided the fastest way to get to Brigham and Women's was to walk — and so, decked out in their concert outfits, they made the trek to our hospital where Angela later delivered her son in the Brigham's NICU," a hospital press release obtained by "Entertainment Tonight" explained. The new mom, who was just 31 weeks pregnant, honored the Grammy winner with her son's name: Aycen Hart. (Pink's husband is motocross racer Carey Hart.) Angela, who had traveled from Albany, New York, to see the show, later told CBS Boston, "The doctors don't have any major concerns. It's amazing. He was so early, a lot of things could have gone wrong, so we're in a good spot and just so happy." Raise your glass to this woman!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie… Ow, Ow, Ow! Rebel Wilson is healing after she was hit in the face with a prop gun on the set of a new movie. "The stitches have dissolved out from my on-set accident last week," the "Bridesmaids" star shared on Instagram on Wednesday, Aug. 9. The incident occurred as she was shooting the film's final scene. "I got hit in the face with the butt of a gun. It was a complete accident and such a shock," the Australian actress said. "Luckily, I'm healing very well so I wanted to say thank you for everybody's well wishes. I hopefully will be totally fine." In early April, Rebel shared an Instagram video that showed off her bloody nose. "NOT the way I wanted to end this movie! 3 stitches and in hospital last night after a stunt accident at 4am," she said at the time.
"Pretty Little Liars" star Sasha Pieterse is opening up about her sudden weight gain while appearing on the hit show. "When I turned, it was probably around 15-16, I started noticing a difference in just my metabolism in general," she said on the "Squeeze" podcast. "At 17, I gained 70 pounds in the year, for no reason. There was no explanation for it." Sasha got few answers regarding the sudden and drastic. "I never had a regular period ever and I was just always told by gynecologists that I was just young. Like, 'Don't worry, it'll regulate,'" she said. "It was the most frustrating experience and disheartening because no matter what I did, no matter how well I behaved, no matter how great I treated my body, things were actually getting worse rather than better. It was very, very confusing."
Eventually, she was diagnosed with PCOS, a hormonal imbalance that occurs when ovaries create excess hormones. "The most frustrating part about this is that it's fairly easy to diagnose. It's a hormone imbalance. It's a hormone disease, and it's so easy to see because your testosterone or your estrogen will be really high, you'll have really low vitamin D levels, you'll be deficient in a lot of things," she said.
Paramore has canceled the remaining dates of their 2023 tour to prevent "long-term damage" to Hayley Williams' voice. "After my lung infection forced us to postpone 4 shows, I was hoping a week off of performing and a strict medicine routine would allow my body to heal enough to finish off this tour strong," the pop-punk singer wrote on Instagram. "I have been doing everything I can to fight this infection so we wouldn't have to disappoint anyone with more news of disappointments and cancellations."
The group recently performed concerts in Seattle and San Francisco. "After struggling through the last few shows and consulting with my doctor, we're unfortunately realizing that it's past the point of wanting to push through to put on a good show for all of you. I'm now risking long-term damage and I need to pay attention to my body," she continued in her statement. "We are so sorry to all of you who were so patient with us as we rescheduled these and likely rearranged travel plans to still come see us out." Hayley added that she "physically cannot go on."
They're heating up! Shakira was first linked to NBA superstar Jimmy Butler in May, and their relationship has apparently grown since then. "They've been getting progressively closer over the past several weeks," an insider told Us Weekly. "Jimmy makes Shakira smile, and she's really enjoying getting to know him on a deeper level."
The romance comes after Shakira's long-term relationship with soccer star Gerard Pique fizzled amid a cheating scandal. The Us Weekly source said the Miami Heat star is "different from other men" Shakira has dated in the past. "She appreciates how he takes the lead in the relationship," the insider added. "He's the one who makes plans with her, pursues her, and it makes her feel valued." Still, "it's too early to tell if there's long-term potential there," the source said.
It's been several years since Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss reportedly had a falling out, but the model showed her support for her former friend on Wednesday, Aug. 9. Karlie was among the many celebrities who attended the pop star's Los Angeles concert at So-Fi Stadium, but Us Weekly pointed out that she sat in the bleachers and not with other notable names in the VIP tent. Karlie was joined by model Marianne Fonseca and Misha Nonoo, a close pal of Meghan Markle (Meghan attended Taylor's L.A. show the prior evening.) Taylor and Karlie struck up a friendship in 2013 and remained incredibly close for years. They reportedly ended their friendship in 2019, but neither has ever publicly confirmed that rumor.
