Get the tab, Brit

And that she will, AFTER she walked out….

Britney Spears got into hot water when reports surfaced that she’d left a California Cheesecake Factory on Sunday, with a to-go bag in hand and didn’t pay the bill!

To everyone’s surprise, Brit thought her body guard had gotten the tab and the body guard thought she had got the tab; and on and on.

Since the pop princess doesn’t like getting her hand cake in the cheesecake jar, she’s decided to pay the $30 bill and bring the waitress a $100 tip to boot.

Good girl Brit ;)

Ariana's 1 Less Problem....

Is Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat show!

Before Ariana Grande was a chart-topping pop star, she was the star of Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat.

Now that the network has announced the cancellation of the series, (after only one season) Grande has taken to Facebook to post a lengthy and heartfelt farewell to the show that made her famous.

“So the news is out about Sam & Cat,” Grande begins. “I felt it wasn’t my place to make any sort of announcement so I kept quiet until now. I want to thank Nickelodeon for making a childhood dream of mine come true, for being a family to me, for being so accommodating and supportive of my multitasking with my music career, and for of course introducing me to many of my fans however many years ago.”

Money and in-cast bickering are said to be the blame………….

Who knew?

Selena Gomez House Party...

Well, not exactly but thanks to our good friends at TMZ, reports are coming in that Selena Gomez had a HUGE party at her house Tuesday night, June 17th. What’s the big deal?
