Jordin Sparks Tears Into Jason Derulo
According to TMZ, Jordin Sparks puts even Taylor Swift to shame by mercilessly going after ex-BF Jason Derulo, calling him out as a vengeful ingrate. Sparks’ SCUD missile takes the form of a mixtape, “#BYEFELICIA,” featuring “How Bout Now (Remix)” … it’s a Drake song reworked to rip Derulo.
“Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Member when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don’t remember half the shit that i did for you.”
And it goes on …
“Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can’t believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I’m with you for your fame and your name. What?”
The couple split back in September after a 3-year romance. After the split Jason trashed Jordin, saying she was pressuring him to marry her. TMZ reached out to Derulo but so far, they have received no word back.
Ariana Grande to Bette Midler If I’m the Kettle, You’re the Pot
Ariana Grande is both hurt and more than a little indignant that Bette Midler called her a whore in a recent interview, telling friends she embraces sexuality on stage — JUST LIKE BETTE DID.
Midler pissed off Grande with her comment, “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering on a couch,” adding, “You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.”
According to TMZ, people close to Ariana tell us, the singer is “shocked” Midler called her out for 2 reasons … 1) Ariana is a huge Bette Midler fan, and 2) Bette did exactly the same thing Ariana does.
Ariana posted on Twitter, “Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love”
