Ashanti Concert Canceled After Selling Only 24 Tickets!

Ashanti may have 3.8 million followers on Instagram and 1.92 million followers on Twitter but apparently that doesn’t mean much when it comes to getting fans to come see her sing. Ashanti was expected to perform at Stony Brook University’s Back To Brook event later this month. The show was canceled though because the college only sold just 24 tickets to the concert! The school released a statement that read, “As an organization, we do our best to host programs for students while providing diversity and inclusion. However, we have struggled to execute certain aspects. With a week before the concert, only 24 tickets are sold to students." The school had originally booked Teyana Taylor but she pulled out at the last minute. As of now, Ashanti is currently working on a new album with Ja Rule. Hopefully her album sales do better. Sorry Ashanti :(

Pete Davidson Breaks His Silence About Breaking Up With Ariana Grande

Pete Davidson has been silent all week about his breakup with Ariana Grande, but now he finally addressed it during a standup show over the weekend. Pete Davidson wasn't afraid to make fun of himself over it. One of his first jokes was about how he is no longer living in Ariana Grande's apartment. He said, "Well, as you could tell, I don't want to be here. There's a lot going on. Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?" Awkward! Pete Davidson also discussed the tattoo he got that was dedicated to Ariana Grande, which he has covered up. "Um, I've been covering a bunch of tattoos, that's fun... I'm f—ing 0 for 2 in the tattoo department. Yeah, I'm afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that's how bad it is." Hey, you live and you learn!

Selma Blair Reveals That She's Been Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

I hate hearing this. Actress Selma Blair revealed over the weekend that she’s been suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. She wrote on Instagram, “I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least.” Selma Blair was diagnosed in August. Read the full post below:

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member... thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. -- my instagram family... you know who you are.
