Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez’s Relationship: A Complete Timeline

Ariana Grande has a new man in her life, real estate agent Dalton Gomez, and she’s finally ready to let us in on their romance.

Earlier this year, the singer officially said “thank u, next” to her past relationships and moved on following her high-profile romance with Pete Davidson. Though she kept her romance with Gomez hush-hush for months, she introduced him to the world in her “Stuck with U” music video before making things Instagram official in June.

Let’s look back at their relationship history, starting with when they reportedly started dating at the beginning of the new year:

January 2020: According to People, the couple began dating in January, but Grande wanted to keep their relationship away from the spotlight after ending her engagement with the Saturday Night Live star in October 2018.

“They have been hanging out for a couple of months,” a source told the outlet. “Ariana doesn’t want to do another public relationship so she is trying to keep this one quiet, but she seems very happy with Dalton.”

February 2020: The pop star and former dancer were first spotted together in February, with TMZ publishing a video of them kissing at Bar Louie in Northridge, California.

March 2020: The couple reportedly got closer while spending quarantine together at Grande’s Los Angeles home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ariana is staying at home with friends. She is very serious about self-distancing and has been with the same group of people for days,” the source told People. “One of the people she is with right now is Dalton.”

At the time, fans also spotted Gomez in Grande’s Instagram Stories.

May 2020: The pair then made their first official appearance in Grande’s “Stuck with U” music video with Justin Bieber. At the very end of the clip, the two engaged in some sweet PDA while slow dancing to the romantic ballad.

June 2020: On June 25, Grande and Gomez went Instagram official after she shared a sweet selfie of them ahead of her 27th birthday. In the photo, Grande can be seen snuggling up next to her smiling beau. (Make sure to swipe through the gallery to see the pic and video.)

On June 27, Grande and Gomez shared a kiss at her Midsommar-themed birthday party.

We will update this timeline with more Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez relationship milestones as they come in.

Adele Just Gave Fans An Important Update on Her New Album

Adele just gave fans a rare update on when to expect her new album—and let’s just say…sigh.

On Saturday, June 26, the British singer sent her fans into a frenzy after posting an Instagram throwback photo of herself singing into a microphone, which she cryptically captioned with a smiley face emoji. The gorgeous image sees her performing on stage at the Glastonbury Festival in 2016 wearing a black sequin-bedazzled dress as confetti falls around her.

In the comments, many were quick to assume the photo meant Adele’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album was officially on its way. (It’s been five years since Adele dropped her last album, 25, so you can imagine the excitement.)

However, the “Someone Like You” hitmaker made sure to debunk that rumor straight away after a fan wrote, “Teaser? Albums coming out today???!!!! Tell me now!!!!”

“Of course it’s not,” Adele replied. “Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient.”

Adele’s statement follows her manager’s confirmation that the album has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Her new record was expected to drop this fall—in September—but now fans will have to wait a little longer.

“It isn’t coming in September, it’ll be ready when it’s ready,” Jonathan Dickins told Music Week this month. “We’re all in the same boat, you’re doing stuff and then all of a sudden, the world stops. It’ll come when it’s ready. I can’t put a date on that yet. We have music, but we’re still working.”

Thankfully, Adele gave us enough content to keep us going for now. She followed up her first post a few hours later with a photo of herself crouched down next to her television as she relived her Glastonbury performance.

If you swipe to the next pic, she can be seen dancing around in her living room wearing the exact same Chloé dress she wore to the event four years ago.

Now, we wait. 

Kate Middleton Got Her Hands Dirty Planting Sunflowers for a Great Cause

As the lockdown eases in the UK, Kate Middleton is easing back into public life, making a recent trip to plant sunflowers for a great cause.

The Duchess of Cambridge visited a children’s hospice earlier this week to help families plant a garden in Norfolk as part of Children’s Hospice Week 2020, which is organized by the charity Together For Short Lives, an organization that aims to raise money for the U.K.’s 54 children’s hospices.

During her visit, Middleton donated the plants she bought at Fakenham Garden Centre last week during her first public appearance since quarantine. The duchess “worked alongside an EACH volunteer gardener and a family to plant a garden that will provide enjoyment for children and families, according the Kensington Palace Instagram statement.

“The care and the nurture that you provide children and families in the most unimaginable circumstances is just awe-inspiring,” Middleton also said in the special audio message, below. “I’d also like to pay tribute to all those families out there who are caring for and looking after a child with a life-limiting illness. You do the most extraordinary job and I know it’s particularly hard at the moment so my thoughts go out to you all.”

It’s clear the duchess was not afraid to get her hands dirty while potting the plants. As seen in photos taken at the event, she plunged her hands into the soil without removing her sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

Even Kate Middleton’s floral dress perfectly suited the occasion as the brand is know for its sustainable fashion. Unfortunately, the $300 dress she reportedly wore from the Indonesian-based ethical company Faithfull the Brand is sold out right now. However, chances the outfit will still inspire many summer fashion looks. You know, for your daily, socially-distanced walk or grocery run.

It turns out, Middleton’s green thumb runs in the family after she revealed her children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, are having a sunflower-growing competition at home. It also looks like Louis may have inherited her talents.

“Louis is winning so George is a little grumpy about that,” she said, according to The Daily Mail.

Normal People Returned With a 40-Year Time Jump and a Fleabag Crossover

ORIGINAL STORY: June 26, 2020—

Hulu’s Normal People likely made you believe in love again—or, at least, remember the sex you had before quarantine—before promptly tearing your heart out. Luckily, there may be more to see of Marianne, Connell, and Connell’s iconic chain. 

According to director Richard Curtis (Love, Actually), who also serves as the cofounder of Ireland’s RTÉ Does Comic Relief charity event, actors Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal will reprise their Normal People roles in two short installments by series director Lenny Abrahamson.

“I promise you, these are two very special bits,” Curtis told The Independent. “It’s so much better than anything we’ve ever made. I mean, I can’t even say all about it, because there’s a guest star in it. But it’s really, really beautiful.”

The two comedic short films will pick up 40 years in the future, starting on June 26. Yes, you read that right, Normal People is a comedy now

Unfortunately, there is a catch. Currently, the specials are set to air on RTÉ, meaning only viewers in Ireland and Northern Ireland will have access to watch live.  There is no word on when we’ll be able to catch up with our favorite Irish lovers here in the U.S.

Whether or not we get to see the continuation of novelist Sally Rooney’s story, Hulu has officially picked up another series by the famed author. Conversations With Friends, Rooney’s first book, follows the scandalous story of two best friends and sometimes lovers, Frances and Bobbi, who become entangled with an older married couple. If you thought Normal People was sexy and filled with yearning, you haven’t seen anything yet. 

“Sally Rooney perfectly and beautifully captures the complicated dynamics of relationships in her stories,” Beatrice Springborn, Hulu’s VP of content, said in a statement, per People. “After bringing that to life in Normal People to an overwhelmingly positive response, we are honored to do the same with Conversations With Friends. We are excited to continue our creative partnership with Sally, Element Pictures, Lenny, and the BBC, which has been a dream collaboration.”

Honestly, this series couldn’t come soon enough. 

Weekly Horoscope for the Week of June 29, 2020

Capricorn | Capricorn rising

The full moon in your sign this week represents a major culmination of so much that you’ve been working toward in terms of self-actualization, and your direction in the world. You’re undergoing seismic shifts, so allow yourself to present in your current incarnation by amplifying your message and your presence. Although the journey continues throughout this year, recognize your achievements as an important milestone. If there’s even a shred of ‘not quite right,’ this is your week to drop it and back yourself with authority, belief, persistence, planning, and good old-fashioned grit.

Aquarius | Aquarius rising

If you’ve been dabbling in a regular routine, this is the week to commit to what resonates the most. While you’re there, you’ll also be tapping into needs you feel aligned with, and finding a way to practically address them. Planning, creating, or even donating. You have the soul of a social activist and the heart of a humanitarian; how can you answer that call?

Pisces | Pisces rising

The strides you’ve been making in your humanitarian sphere will culminate this week as you are clear on what you want to amplify and what you are clearing from your life. Contributing practical work, perhaps creating a group-oriented project that you back with your hard-won authority and position in society, will become clear as the week rolls by. The weekend may be particularly intense, so keep your eyes open to the lay of the land. Connect with groups, people, or organizations that you feel aligned with and let go of those that are no longer a perfect fit. You can achieve more when you consolidate.

Here’s How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Reportedly Supporting a Facebook Ad Boycott

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly using their considerable influence to support the Stop Hate for Profit boycott of Facebook advertising. 

The campaign is encouraging businesses to refuse to advertise with the tech company throughout July to protest hate speech and lack of fact-checking on the social media platform that leads to the dangerous spread of misinformation.   

“They  allowed  incitement  to  violence  against  protesters  fighting  for racial justice in America in the wake of George Floyd, Breonna TaylorTony  McDadeAhmaud  ArberyRayshard  Brooks  and  so  many others,” the Stop Hate for Profit website reads. “Let’s send Facebook a powerful message. Your profits will never be worth promoting hate, bigotry, racism, antisemitism and violence.”

But where do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle come in? According to a source who spoke to Town and Country this month, the royal couple are privately encouraging CEOs to “stand in solidarity” with the civil rights initiative. 

“As we’ve been developing Archewell, one of the areas The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been keen to address is online hate speech, and we’ve been working with civil rights and racial justice groups on it,” the source said. “Over the past few weeks, in particular, this issue has become even more vital and they have been working to encourage global CEOs to stand in solidarity with a coalition of civil and racial justice groups like the NAACP, Color of Change, and the Anti-Defamation League, which are calling for structural changes to our online world.”

A source told T&C that “for a long time, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been working on how to move the tech industry in a more humane direction,” and that they “believe there is an urgent and pressing need to remodel the framework of our online public spaces.”

The pair have reportedly been “working behind the scenes to urge global CEOs to stand in solidarity with civil rights and racial justice leaders,” the source continued. “They’ve spoken with CEOs across the product spectrum; tech and media, consumer goods, food and beverage, apparel, and others.”

On June 26, the NAACP have shared a message to the duke and duchess to thank them for their support. 

“We are grateful for the leadership of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in recognizing the importance of solidarity in this moment,” the civil rights organization tweeted. “Your commitment to truth, justice, and equality are appreciated.”

According to the publication, more than 90 advertisers have joined the boycott so far. 

Margot Robbie Has Been Cast in a Female-Centric Pirates of the Caribbean Movie

Margot Robbie has been cast in the first-ever female-fronted Pirates of the Caribbean film.

The Oscar-nominated actor will reunite with Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson to take over the franchise following Johnny Depp’s run as Captain Jack Sparrow. The plan is to give fans a revamped and female-centric version of the beloved Disney film franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is in early development and will be separate from the previously-announced reboot by Pirates writer Ted Elliott and creator Craig Mazin. However, both films will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

Though plot details have not been released, the outlet reports the movie is not “intended to be a spinoff of the long-running franchise” and is a “wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker.”

The project is still in the early stages of its development and so it will likely be a long time before it gets an official release date—especially amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which continues to affect film and TV productions.

In case you didn’t know, Pirates of the Caribbean is the 14th highest-grossing film series ever, grossing over $4.5 billion worldwide. However the last film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, didn’t perform nearly as well

Robbie may certainly be the answer and fans on Twitter seem to agree. “Margot Robbie in a pirates movie isn’t something I knew I needed but I absolutely do need it and I need it now,” one fan tweeted.

Many hope the new movie will bring back Kiera Knightley who appeared in four out of five Pirates installments. (BTW, Knightley was only 17 years old when she played Elizabeth for the first film, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Orlando Bloom, who played her love interest Will Turner was in his mid-twenties.) 

“Margot Robbie and Keira Knightley together in the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot. I would like to see it,” another fan wrote on Twitter. 

Robbie and Knightley would undoubtedly be great in a film together, but let’s also make sure the film will be more diverse than its predecessors. Now that, we would truly love to see. 

The New Princess Bride Remake Stars Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas and a Bunch of Other Celebrities

The Princess Bride is being remade this summer with Sophie Turner and husband Joe Jonas starring as Westley and Princess Buttercup, respectively. Yes, I said respectively. 

A number of other Hollywood A-listers have teamed for this version of Princess Bride, which was filmed by at their own homes amid quarantine using their phones. According to Variety, the remake will be released in chapters every day for two weeks on Quibi, beginning June 29.

Other cast members include Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, Elijah Wood, Diego Luna, Elijah Wood, Jon Hamm, Common, Chris Pine, Tiffany Haddish, Beanie Feldstein, Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, Jack Black, Diego Luna, Taika Waititi, and Zazie Beetz.

“The actors will trade off roles throughout scenes, each paying homage to The Princess Bride in their own unique way,” Variety reports.

Jonas and Turner, who are expecting their first child later this year, star in their scene as Princess Buttercup and Westley, with Jonas wearing a blonde wig as Turner dons a perfect replica of Westley’s black mask. The roles were first made famous by actors Robin Wright and Cary Elwes in the original 1987 movie, which follows a hero’s quest to rescue his true love from the vile Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon).

Vanity Fair shared an exclusive first look of the remake on June 26. The best part? Their adorable corgi plays R.O.U.S (Rodent of Unusual Size).

In another scene, the film’s original director Rob Reiner will play “The Grandfather,” replacing Peter Falk who passed away in 2009, and Josh Gad will play Fred Savage’s original character, “The Grandson.” In this scene, Common takes on the role of Westley, with Tiffany Haddish playing the princess. 

Check it out some highlights for yourself, below.

Also, please enjoy this scene with Jack Black and Diego Luna as Westley and Inigo Montoya. Mandy Patinkin, who played the vengeful swordsman in the original film, should be proud. 

The remake will raise funds for the World Central Kitchen charity, which provides meals to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
