In a cover story for TIME magazine’s Next Generation Leaders issue, Ariana Grande reveals that she is still struggling to cope with the bombing that occurred outside her concert in Manchester last May. “There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain. The processing part is going to take forever,” she notes. “It’s the absolute worst of humanity.” The 24-year-old singer continues, “Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day. I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”

 

Hilary Duff’s neighbor Dieter Addison called the New York police on Wednesday to report that the actress’ boyfriend Matthew Koma punched him over his chain smoking habit. “I tried to avoid his fist, but he hit me on the head,” Dieter said. “So I pushed him out of the apartment, but I didn’t assault him.” He continues, “I have studied martial arts for many years, and I know how to block people. I didn’t want a fight. I immediately called my lawyer who told me to call the police.” Hilary’s reps declined to comment on the incident, but did attempt to explain why Matthew may have been upset. “Hilary and her young son have been subjected to excessive secondhand smoke, late-night noise, garbage in the hallways, and an overall hazardous living environment from this man for months now,” her reps said. Hilary herself took to Instagram to blast her “a**hole neighbor [who] smokes cigarettes and weed all night long.” She shared his name and photo on her Instagram stories and declared, “We know your parents pay your rent. We know you’ve never worked a day in your life—must be nice. Have some respect for your neighbors who work hard to live in that building.”

Meghan Markle may want to call her friend Serena Williams for advice about what to do when your dad bails on your wedding.

And I know he was really excited,” says Serena, who wound up walking herself down the aisle. “But then he wrote me and said, ‘Serena, I don’t want you to be mad at me, but I just can’t walk you down the aisle. I’m not myself anymore. I’m too nervous.’ I wrote right back and I said, ‘Daddy, it’s OK. If you don’t want to come to the wedding at all, that’s OK too. I’m not going to be upset with you about it.” She added, “I know the struggles he has had these last few years.

Pink took to Twitter on Wednesday to shut down a troll who insulted her appearance. “Wow Pink looks so old that [she] should be named purple instead,” the person wrote. Pink, who is 38 and a mother of two was unamused. She wrote: “You must be from L.A.. Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f**king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin’ though? ‘Cause I never heard of you until you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.” She continued, “I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old. That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth, it means you’ve laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years because that will mean I’m alive. Several fans, including celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, have since applauded Pink for her clapback. “Agree @pink!” Witherspoon tweeted. “We are supposed to grow old and our faces and our bodies that carry us through this life. Gotta have gratitude for every minute on this Earth.”
