Ariana Grande Falls Onstage While Performing “Bang Bang” at Toronto Concert
The tiny pop star was playing to a packed crowd at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Sunday, March 8, when it happened. Grande was singing “Bang Bang,” when the footwork got a little too complicated. After working it on the front of the stage, she was climbing a set of stairs back to the main platform when she tripped and fell. The “Love Me Harder” singer was wearing 5-inch heels, so lets cut her some slack, she got right back up and continued to sing, and dance. Get the full story here.

Paul Rudd Let A Man Spit Chewed Food Into His Mouth, For Charity
Paul Rudd was just one of many celebrities who took part in Comedy Central’s Night Of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together For Autism Education on Sunday, but he was the only one who let someone spit in his mouth. As part of Paul’s act to raise money for autism awareness, he and host Jon Stewart played a game called Wheel of Rudd where different audience members got to humiliate the 45-year-old with different tasks. After shotgunning a beer and getting slapped in the face, a guy named Joe got to feed Paul some masticated chicken, as if Paul was a baby bird. That means Joe got to chew the meat until it was a paste and then spit it into Paul’s mouth… It was gross. The special has raised over $18 million since 2006, so at least it’s for a good cause!

Mariah Carey Sold The Home She and Nick Cannon Shared & He Had No Say In the Deal
According to a new lawsuit, Cannon says he never authorized the $9 million sale of the Bel-Air home he and Carey used to share, and believes biz manager Michael Kane was dealing exclusively with her people on the deal. He says he didn’t find out about this until after the fact. But the house isn’t the issue, Nick says he’s fine with the sale, his problem is Kane failed to keep him in the loop from start to finish. He’s most concerned about how funds from the sale will be divvied up. Nick wants the $9 mil frozen until he gets a detailed accounting to determine how much cheese he’s getting. Kane calls the lawsuit “frivolous” and says it’s “clearly a desperate act from a sadly desperate man.” Get the full story here.
