Vanessa Bryant posted another emotional and heartbreaking message on Instagram last night.  Vanessa says she’s having a hard time excepting both Kobe and her daughter Gigi are gone.  She expresses anger but also says she knows it’s a normal part of the grieving process and that she has to be there for three remaining daughters.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.

Eminem did a rare interview with Variety yesterday talking about why he performed at the Academy Awards. A lot of people were confused why 17 years after he won the Oscar for “Lose Yourself,” from the film 8 Mile, he was performing in 2020. Eminem says the Academy asked, and he said yes. And that’s about it.  Em says they rehearsed four or five times offsite to keep it a secret.  Back in 2003 he didn’t appear at the show because, as he says, he didn’t feel the show would “get” him.  Instead he stayed at home and went to bed early since his daughter Haley had to be up early for school. When he found out he won the Oscar he says he was shocked and that it “ shows how authentic and real that award is,” that you can win even if you don’t show up.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a proud papa, announcing that his daughter simone has officially signed a WWE contract, and she’s on the way to being the first ever fourth generation WWE wrestler in the organization’s history.  Speaking on her WWE signing, 18-year-old Simone said "it means the world to me. To know that my family has such a personal connection to wrestling is really special to me and I feel grateful to have the opportunity, not only to wrestle, but to carry on that legacy.”
 
 

And who *is* that smooching on Ariana Grande? We have no idea, but she seems to like him.  Ari and friends were hanging out in Bar Louie in Northridge, California, just north of LA.  We know the guy isn't Mikey from Social House, who Ari spend a lot of time with, but says is just a friend.
