The Mirror says a Taylor Swift fan, in Melbourne, Australia, was outraged after paying $700 for an obstructed view concert ticket. The fan was eventually relocated to better seats.

People magazine says Taylor Swift was recently performing in Singapore when she jokingly mentioned how the humidity was affecting her hair. She said, "As you can see, my hair has returned to its factory settings, thanks to the humidity here. I'm not complaining, I like it. But, I do want to commend you because it's very humid and you guys have just turned it up 100% all night. You've been dancing, you've been standing and taking pictures all night. And you look so cute, why am I sweating so much? Then I'm looking at you, you all look perfect."

Ariana Grande tells that there's parts of her life that she doesn't clearly remember. "Like, there's things I know I've done, but don't have a clear recollection of them because of how hectic my life was. Like I know I wrote 'Thank U, Next', but I don't remember actually writing the song. It's kinda scary. I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished."

Dua Lipa tells Vanity Fair magazine that you don't have to always go all out with your makeup. "You don't have to do your full face every time you go out. If you're going out dancing, I think a lipstick and some mascara and just get sweaty. That's the vibe. Why put on a ton of makeup if you're just going to sweat it off?"

Closer Magazine says Ben Affleck is allegedly humiliated by Jennifer Lopez's explicit revelations in her new film and album. A source reveals, “Ben had begged her not to go into such vivid detail, but Jen wasn’t hearing any of it. She was clear from the start that she’d share how passionate and intense their love story is but, for Ben, it’s too much. He’s feeling trampled on, not to mention embarrassed. Jen has a thin skin and often complains about what people say about them, but then she turns around and makes their entire private life into this big public display. As far as Ben’s concerned, she’s being way too open, and he worries it’ll give people license to tear them to shreds. But when Ben tries to tell her that, she gets defensive and accuses him of trying to suffocate her creativity.”

Zac Efron says he was a troublemaker when he was in school. GEO TV quotes him as saying, “I remember I was on a school trip in fifth or sixth grade, and we went to the zoo. There was a sign that said, “Do not clap at the monkeys.” My friends and I noticed it, and the lady goes, “Guys, whatever you do, do not draw attention yourselves with these monkeys. The class moved on, and we immediately ran back to the monkey cage and just started clapping. They started throwing **** at us. **** got everywhere, landed next to a bunch of little kids, and was hitting strollers and things.”

The Daily Mail says Travis Kelce is going all out to impress Taylor Swift during her Eras Tour around Europe. He has allegedly booked $6,000 hotel suites and restaurant tables in Paris and Milan. Kelce wants to take Swift on romantic getaways and food and wine tours in Italy. Kelce is doing everything he can to make their romance work.

SheFinds says Angelina Jolie is allegedly preventing Brad Pitt's girlfriend, Ines De Ramon, from meeting her and Brad’s children. A source says, "Angelina still exerts a lot of control over Brad. There's no doubt Ines wants to meet the children, but she knows Brad has to do whatever it takes to see them without trouble from Angelina."

The Daily Mail says Jamie Foxx will finally reveal the details of his near-death health scare during an upcoming comedy special. He was hospitalized last April, but has not yet revealed what caused his illness. Jamie recently Instagrammed, "Going to get on somebody's stage somewhere near you. I got some jokes, and a story to tell."

In Touch Weekly  says Katie Holmes is allegedly actively seeking work because her child support payments from Tom Cruise are nearing an end. A source says, “For years, Katie’s enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, thanks to Tom’s consistent support. But as their child nears adulthood, both mother and daughter are facing an uncertain future. It’s a terrifying prospect — going from an amazing standard of living to a question mark overnight!  She’s actively looking for roles and is eager to throw herself back into the industry full-time. And don’t forget the non-disclosure agreement she signed — it’s set to expire, too. If things get tough, Katie could cash in by penning a tell-all book!”

Gen Z Can't See

A new study by The Daily Mail reveals that today's children are facing a potential blindness crisis due to a lack of outdoor time and excessive screen use. Experts warn that there could be a vision epidemic in the near future as the rates of near-sightedness have been skyrocketing across the world. Myopia has spiked a staggering 59% among teenagers. Researchers say the lack of natural sunlight means young people aren't getting enough dopamine in their retinas.

Dr. Joern Jorgensen says, "We can encourage children to go outside and do more sports, but you can't reverse what has already happened with social media playing such an important part in their lives. The second damaging factor is the amount of 'near work' younger people are doing, which is also damaging ... serious short-sightedness also dramatically increases the chances of developing other serious conditions such as glaucoma and retinal detachment. It's a very serious situation."

Dear Fonseca

My 6-year-old daughter has a daddy-daughter dance coming up in a few weeks. She has a real father and a stepfather. She can only choose one father to go with. Both fathers are acting like politicians lobbying for votes. My daughter is confused and doesn't know which father to pick. I too am confused. Should I make the choice for her or allow her to make it on her own? I'm not sure what to do? What would you do if you were in my position? Who should she choose and on what basis should she make her choice?
