- Ariana Grande is officially married! This past week, she secretly tied the knot with her fiance Dalton Gomez. According to PEOPLE, Grande originally planned for “a big wedding.” However, due to the ongoing pandemic, she and her fiancé agreed upon a smaller ceremony and were very happy about it. Other celebs who have done similar intimate ceremonies this year include Riz Ahmed and Fatima Farheen Mirza, Jeannie Mai and Jeezy, and Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata. Congrats to the newlyweds!
- Speaking of love, A$AP Rocky was trending on social media after his interview with GQ. Rocky discussed self-discovery and music exploration after being released from Swedish jail in 2019. He also talked about his girlfriend, Rihanna. He shared, “So much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones.”
- The 2021 BET Awards will return with a fully vaccinated audience. The awards are set to premiere on Sunday, June 27, at LA’s Microsoft Theater.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, BET has been at the forefront of recovery efforts for our community, turning entertainment touchpoints into opportunities to empower our audiences and help combat the disproportionate impacts of Covid-19. Vaccination rates among Black Americans are significantly lower than other communities. We are committed to using our signature programming event – The BET Awards – to encourage vaccination in our community.BET president Scott Mills, Deadline
