Lorde's Uber Driver Stoked About Driving Celebrities Who Aren't Lorde

Lorde
The beautiful pop star Lorde is pretty famous. She's a Grammy winner, she's in Taylor Swift's squad and sells out concerts. But for some reason she flies under the radar.

She grabbed an Uber only to realize her driver was stoked about driving a celebrity...except it wasn't her. And just so Lorde knew she wasn't alone, the delightful Ellie Goulding replied...
Keep it real ladies.

The Joke That Was Banned From The DNC

Al Franken and Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman got laughs when she told Bernie or Bust supporters that they were "being ridiculous" at the Democratic National Convention, but there was one joke that never made it on stage.

She tells the New York Times, "At the very beginning, when Al said, 'I'm Al Franken, and this past year I've been hashtag-I'm With Her' … I was going to say, 'And I'm Sarah Silverman, and this past year I've been with the possibly agnostic Jew' but they were like, no. And they are right but I get so indignant. At least I'm aware, and awareness brings change, so maybe I'll be less obnoxious."

The 'Ice Bucket Challenge' Actually Funded An ALS Breakthrough!

Ice Bucket Challenge
Remember when everyone was doing the "Ice Bucket Challenge" in 2014? It was considered a breakthrough in fundraising, and now the money raised has lead to a breakthrough in the fight against ALS.

One million dollars raised from the challenge was given to Project MinE. The U.S. division of the project was able to use the money to identify a gene, NEK1, that is linked to ALS. That could help provide clues to possibly treat the disease! That's pretty freakin' awesome. And now I feel bad for getting sick of seeing it on social media after a while.

Khloe Kardashian Slams Donald Trump Since 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Khloe Kardashian
I'm sure you're waiting to see who the Kardashians endorse for President right? Sounds like Khloe definitely won't be voting for Donald Trump.

She was on Chelsea Handler's Netflix show this week and was asked about being on Celebrity Apprentice.

"It wasn't for me," she said. "My mom made me do it, of course, so I did it and hated every minute of it. I was stressing myself out and then dealing with him and being fired…I wanted to say '**** you, I don't want to do this!"

Chelsea asked Khloe if she though her mom Kris Jenner believed that her former boss Donald would be a good president. "I don't think so, no," she said, and added, "I don't think he would make a good president."

WikiLeaks At DNC Expose Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande
It's a revelation that makes you go - huh? From the WikiLeaks release of hacked DNC emails: Ariana Grande lost out on a White House gig thanks to her doughnut-licking incident.

Last summer she was caught on tape licking doughnuts at a doughnut shop saying she hated America. When she was suggested for a White House gig, the vetting committee denied it based on her doughnut-licking.

All was eventually forgiven because she was asked to perform at the DNC this week but declined due to scheduling conflicts.

Why Taylor Swift Was 'Banned' From Attending Comic-Con

Taylor Swift
Actor Tom Hiddleston of course made an appearance at Comic-Con - He's starring in a new movie about the origin of King Kong. And he's also dating Taylor Swift.

Reports are suggesting that Tom was asked to attend without Taylor because together they would attract too much of a media circus. That's not good when you want people to focus on your movie!
