‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ leading man happily married—to another man
In the musical comedy series, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” hunky Josh Chan (Fil-Am actor Vince Rodriguez III) is torn between two smitten women. But in real life, Rodriguez is openly gay and is happily married to Gregory Wright, a marketing technologist.

Destiny’s Child reunion?
Fans began speculating that the popular R&B group Destiny’s Child—whose last lineup was composed of Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams—will make a comeback of sorts, after an official Destiny’s Child account managed by Sony’s Legacy Recordings, recently surfaced on Instagram.
Fueling the rumor further is the fact that Destiny’s Child will be celebrating its 20th founding anniversary next year. The all-girl group behind the hits, “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Say My Name” and “Survivor,” whose other former members included Farrah Franklin, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett, disbanded in 2006.
Justin Bieber walks out
Pop star Justin Bieber recently took to Twitter to explain why he briefly walked out of a concert in Manchester, United Kingdom.
During that show, the Canadian singer reportedly dropped his microphone and stormed out, because the crowd wouldn’t stop screaming between performances, making it hard for him to communicate with fans.
In an open letter he recently shared with his followers online—which he has since deleted—Justin stressed that he wasn’t angry at his fans. “There are going to be times when I say the wrong thing, because I’m human,” part of his letter read.
“All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little…sometimes it’s my job to just say, ‘Hey, I’m not going to force anything.’”
