Ariana Grande's new boyfriend got upstaged by her tongue -- which got dangerously close to some powdered donuts ... pissing off the people who busted their asses making 'em.
Ok, first the BF -- Ricky Alvarez, he's one of Ariana's backup dancers, and you can see them engage in some serious mouth-to-mouth PDA in this security cam video ... which wouldn't have come to light if not for the donut incident.
Sources inside Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, CA tell us the couple came in on Saturday, and decided to play truth or dare with the goods -- daring each other to lick powdered jelly donuts on the counter.
Hard to tell if their tongues actually make contact, but our sources in the shop say it was definitely too close for their liking -- especially since Ariana pulled the stunt when no one was looking, and they would've tossed the contaminated donuts if they knew.
Then again ... plenty of people might pay extra for a Grande-licked pastry.
Justin Bieber's fully naked ass hanging out on a boat deck ... or the gorgeous deep blue water of Bora Bora -- what are you really staring at in this pic?
It's okay. We'll give you a moment to think about your answer.
Justin just pulled his own version of "Break the Internet" ... with this nude pic of himself standing on the deck of a boat in the world famous lagoon.
Still thinking? We know. Stupid island pics are a dime a dozen.
Apply sunscreen liberally, Biebs!
Taylor Swift crushed the rest of America in the 4th of July rager department! T Swizzle was cooking, baking, and (maybe) banging through the holiday with her BF Calvin Harris.
She even had Gigi Hadid in a bikini, and Ed Sheeran in a Redcoat -- cause someone's gotta play the villain. 'Merica!!
Jenelle Evans never thought the Internet would explode over her dog playing with fireworks in a gnarly 4th of July video -- because, as she puts it ... they do it on "America's Funniest Home Videos."
Jenelle tells TMZ that it was all a misunderstanding after letting her dog, Jax, play fetch with a lit firework during her party in Myrtle Beach. On a video she posted of the stunt ... it sounds like she tells Jax to fetch the firework -- and that's what got people pissed.
Jenelle deleted her post off social media once the backlash started. She tells us she thought the vid was innocent, and adds ... she saw the same thing on 'AFV.'
Don't get it twisted though -- she says she's NOT sorry about letting Jax play with explosives, but she's sorry people were offended.
She insists the dog is fine, and she'd pull the same stunt next July.
The Hollywood couple headed to Chicago this Fourth of July weekend. And being two music superstars, the pair couldn't help but celebrate the festive holiday at a rocking concert.
The twosome was spotted getting cozy at the Grateful Dead farewell concert series Saturday night where they listened to tunes from the floor section.
Mayer wore denim jeans and a blue sweater while Perry opted for a fedora, gray sweater and blue bandana placed around her neck. Yes, it's quite the different look from what the two wore on the Fourth of July two years ago. Never forget the "broad stripes and bright stars."
Back in May, E! News exclusively confirmed Perry and Mayer were indeed back together. In fact, their visit to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., further proved that these two were so on.
According to onlookers, the group enjoyed hanging out in the park so much that they didn't leave until closing time—around midnight!
The pair was also acting very cozy when they enjoyed a romantic meal at Los Angeles hot spot Ysabel in early April.
"They never stopped talking and being friendly while they were broken up," asource revealed to E! News. "They are really excited about being together right now and spending as much time as possible."
Well, someone was clearly very inspired by the movie Up.
While many of us who are fans of the movie only wished of traveling the skies on a chair tied to balloons, Daniel Boria of Calgary, Alberta, made it a reality and pulled one very dangerous (but pretty awesome, let's be real) stunt.
Except now he's facing charges from police. Oops!
Boria was detained by police over the weekend after he was spotted soaring over Calgary in a lawn chair tied to helium balloons in an alleged stunt to promote his company, according to reports.
He tied 110 helium-filled balloons to a $10 green plastic lawn chair purchased at a local Walmart, according to CBCNews and Boria, a skydiver, planned to parachute from his colorful aircraft into the Calgary Stampede, an annual rodeo event, to draw attention to his company.
However the weather worked against Boria, and he ended up landing in an industrial field about a mile away from his target. He was uninjured, and his unique contraption is said to still be flying in the sky somewhere.
Instead of being greeted with cheers and awe, Boria was met with charges from police. He's been charged with one count of mischief causing danger to life and one count for mischief to property under $5,000, and was released Monday
Caitlyn Jenner is living her best life.
That much is evident in the newly released trailer for I Am Cait, which debuted exclusively on E! News earlier tonight. The first footage showed Caitlyn and her friends clinking champagne glasses in a toast "to Caitlyn." Her mom, Esther Jenner, was among those celebrating the 65-year-old's many achievements.
Upon learning that Caitlyn is transgender, Esther, 88, recalled to the Olympian, "My first feeling was, 'I lost my son.' Then I thought, 'You know what? I'm gaining.'"
(Last month, Caitlyn Jenner chose to identify publicly as a woman and E! News will refer to her using female pronouns. In stories published before this date, she was referred to as Bruce Jenner and male pronouns were used.)
Another scene showed Caitlyn meeting with transgender youth. "Hang out with the people that love you and respect you," she advised. After they gave her a group hug, a proud Caitlyn returned the love, saying, "We're all beautiful!"
Not every moment was a happy one, of course. Tears streamed down Caitlyn's face while discussing her children, saying, "I want them to be proud of their daddy." And how could they not be? Caitlyn herself promised that there are "no more secrets" to be revealed. And now, with nothing left to hide, she finally feels "free."
With that freedom comes responsibility, to paraphrase. As Caitlyn explained in the first article from her WhoSay series "The Real Me," published today, sharing her story—and hearing other people's stories—has been "an eye-opening experience."
"The response to my new journey has been overwhelmingly positive," the E! star wrote, "and I'm eternally grateful for all of your sweet messages, letters and gifts."
Until recently, Caitlyn confessed that she had "totally isolated" herself from the transgender community, adding, "I have a lot of catching up to do!"
"I feel such a responsibility to this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story. To me, that's always the biggest question: am I doing it right?" she said. "...I have so much to discover, and hope you'll join me on this adventure."
ESPN magazine's The Body Issue has officially made its online debut—and E! News has a look at the six different covers before the mag hits newsstands on Friday.
In addition to baseball star Bryce Harper, Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love, heptathlete Chantae McMillan and track and field athlete Amanda Bingsonare among the world class athletes featured on the mag's various covers for the seventh annual issue.
The pics see the famous sports stars posing nude, highlighting the strength of their bodies, which allow them to perform their sport at a top-notch level.
"One of the things I love about the Body Issue so much is that it celebrates the bodies that allow us to be successful in our sport," Coughlin, 32, said. "As a sports fan, I love seeing the differences in body types."
Still, the swimmer, who is a 12-time Olympic medalist, has struggled with body image issues in the past.
"There were a lot of girls around me growing up that suffered full-blown eating disorders, or just the body dysmorphia that every girl feels -- especially every girl in a swimsuit," the athlete told the mag. "There were times when I wasn't happy with my body, but I always knew that I was really fit and that it was what allowed me to be successful in the pool."
She added that she's still self-conscious about her arms. "It's really hard to find a dress that's a size 10 in the lats but a size 4 in the waist. But I want to be as successful as I can; if that means having big arms, I'll take big arms."
Likewise, track and field hammer thrower Amanda Bingson said she's proud to pose for The Body Issue and wants to show that "athletes come in all shapes and sizes."
"Dense would be the right word for me," she admitted. "Generally when you look at athletes, you see their muscles and all that stuff; I don't have any of that. My arm is just my arm -- it's not cut, it's not sculpted. I don't have traps bulging out to my ears; I have a neck. I don't have a six-pack. My legs are a little toned, but they aren't bulging out. I'm just dense."
We previously reported that the former That '70s Show co-stars tied the knot at the Secret Garden at Parrish Ranch in Oak Glen, Calif., right at sunset in front of close family and friends.
An insider tells us that the bride wore a stunning "strapless dress with her hair pulled back" and the couple's daughter, Wyatt, also donned a white dress throughout the event.
We're told the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher set up signs that read Camp Kuku and that the party went late into the night on the Fourth of July.
"Everyone danced and had a great time," the source spilled to E! News, adding that "there was also a casual farewell brunch on Sunday morning before everyone went home."
The Hollywood A-listers didn't exactly treat their guests to five-star hotel rooms for their special day, but they did put them up in luxury tents on the ranch grounds so that no one had to leave the property the entire celebratory weekend.
So how did the famous duo decide on The Secret Garden for their wedding location? Well, other than the enticing name, of course.
Our source says that they actually had been scoping out the area for a while now, dishing that "they visited the area last winter."
"It's extremely private, secluded and beautiful. It's a place that feels a million miles away from Los Angeles. There's a huge pond in the middle and it's surrounded by apple orchards and vistas."
Sounds perfect if you ask us! But don't go willy nilly booking your big day there before seeing the price tag, which is said to cost you around $18,000 just to nab the venue.
Regardless, congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
"Kourtney has always taken Scott back and been by his side, but now with three kids it has gotten old," a source said. "Kourtney has to do what's best for the kids."
While a split is never easy, Kourtney and Scott's breakup is even more complicated since the parents to Mason, 5, Penelope, 2 and Reign, 6 months, have never married.
So, how do they plan to share custody of their children and is there a chance they will reconcile?
A source tells E! News that there is no current custody agreement in place, and since Kourtney and Scott are not husband and wife, the two will have to work out an arragement.
While Scott has been partying in France, Kourtney has remained at the now-former couple's home caring for their three children. She was last seen stepping out—while looking gorgeous in a midriff-baring shirt—on Friday in Los Angeles.
Of course, this isn't the first time that Scott and Kourtney have split. The longtime loves temporarily called it quits back in 2010 due to Disick's issues with substance abuse, which have been widely documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
However, in spite of reconciling in the past, sources say this is the final straw for Kourtney, who, we're told, is bouncing back from baby no. 3, feeling good and wanting to move forward.
Kourtney "is putting on a brave face," a source told E! News in the wake of the split, "but she is over it. She's fed up. It's humiliating and disrespectful. How much more is she supposed to take?"
Does this mean Deborra Lee-Furness can't work with Brad Pitt?
Hugh Jackman and his wife spoke with Australia's Today during a fundraising event for Adopt Change in Melbourne over the weekend, where host Lisa Wilkinson asked the couple to share their secret to their nearly 20-year long marriage.
"I've told his agent he's not allowed to work with Angelina [Jolie]" Furness quipped when asked how she copes with seeing her husband kiss other women on the job.
"I'm sure she's lovely," she added of the humanitarian before praising her adoption efforts.
Jokes aside, Furness, whom Jackson first met on the set of the 1995 film Correlli, is grateful to have a stable marriage in such an uncertain industry.
"That's the deal with this business. If you get it right, if you pick the right partner, then, you traverse all those travails and challenges," the actress, who has two children with Jackman, said.

Rapper Prince Harvey is set to release his latest album, PHATASS, later this month -- and the album is quite unique to other rap albums on the charts. It wasn't made in a studio or on his own computer; the New York City rapper's entire album was recorded at the Apple Store in SoHo.
PHATASS, which stands for Prince Harvey at the Apple Store: SoHo, was created in the store because the rapper's computer crashed and he lost all of his equipment in a series of unfortunate events.
“It wasn’t my plan to record this at the Apple Store. First, my computer died. Then my external [hard drive] died,” he told The Daily Beast. “New York is expensive. I couldn’t just buy another laptop. I just thought, ‘I’m going to die before anyone knows I’m hot.’”
Harvey learned how to beat the system by befriending a few kind Apple employees and finding shortcuts such as hiding his files in the trash as to avoid the daily computer memory wipes. He dealt with obstacles like unfriendly security or store fire drills when he couldn't save his work in time before leaving the store. But after five days a week for 16 weeks, the album was finished -- without any instruments or high-quality studio equipment.
“I don’t think I’m poor. Poor is a mentality. I mean, I can be broke -- no money in my pocket -- but I’ve never been poor. I’ve been rich my whole life,” he said.
PHATASS will be released on July 26. Check out the full story here.

Will Smith tells Apple Music that he may record some new music. ''I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet but I'm exploring. I'm in a creative ceiling.

I don't have anything I like yet, but I've probably recorded seven or eight [songs]. It's not for certain, it's just explorative.''
Their marriage is over-but they're still a family. As they announced they are divorcing after 10 years of marriage, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner spent the week with their three children in the Bahamas. "The family felt it was important to be together and they were together. The family is united and, no matter what, will protect the kids," a source tells PEOPLE. Affleck arrived on June 28 at Baker's Bay, the secluded private resort community in the Abacos where the family owns a home, and Garner arrived on their wedding anniversary a day later. The next day, June 30, they revealed they're divorcing. Despite the tranquil setting-and their joint decision to prioritize co-parenting their three children-signs of their strained relationship were impossible to hide. In a moment away from Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, Affleck-who was still wearing his wedding ring – and Garner sat on stairs to the beach together but had "no physical contact" while having a "serious" and somber conversation that lasted for only a few minutes, an onlooker tells PEOPLE. Though Affleck, 42, appeared to be "distracted" during the conversation, he and Garner, 43, "seemed to be cordial to each other. They would look at each other and speak and then both look away in silence," the onlooker adds. "A lot of the time, they seemed to just stare off into space."
