JOE JONAS AND DEMI LOVATO WERE NEVER STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR
Joe Jonas has revealed that he and Demi Lovato didn't actually get stuck in an elevator for four hours. The singer posted a video last week while in an elevator with Demi and his band, DNCE. In the clip he said, "Been stuck in here for four hours." Joe confessed to People on Monday (September 26th), that the video was a prank. He said, "It was a lot less dramatic. It was a total prank and we fooled everyone. I made the video saying we got stuck in the elevator, but we really weren't. But I guess it's bad karma to say that because I don't want to get stuck in the elevator anytime soon."

  • He added, "Demi and I were talking yesterday and I said, 'I think we fooled everyone because it's on every press site,' but we really weren't stuck in the elevator."


ARIANA GRANDE'S 'DANGEROUS WOMAN TOUR' ISN'T SELLING?
Reports are claiming that Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman Tour" isn't doing so well. According to Perez Hilton, screenshots have surfaced of the available seating charts for Ari's upcoming shows in Phoenix, Orlando, Atlanta, Chicago, Vancouver and L.A. According to the photos, most of the venues have more available seats than seats sold. Based on the seating charts, The Forum in L.A., however, has the most sold seats.

Ari recently announced 36 more shows that are scheduled between February 2nd and April 15th.

  • Ariana has not addressed her ticket sales.


BOBBY BROWN SPEAKS ON NICK GORDON BEING LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR DAUGHTER'S DEATH
In an interview with T.D. Jakes, Bobby Brown opened up about Nick Gordon being found legally responsible for his daughter's death. As previously reported, Gordon was found civilly liable in Bobby Kristina's death after he failed to appear in court twice in the wrongful death suit twice in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Brown's conservators last year. Bobby told Jakes, "I don't know the specifics of what happened, but as the judge has said, he is legally responsible. I know some things that happened to my daughter, but it's up to the D.A. now to do his job."

He continued, "My daughter was afraid of tubs because of what happened to her mom. So I know she wouldn't have gotten in the tub. I mean it's crazy because the tub wasn't even full of water. It had a dustpan in it, in the bottom of the tub."

  • Brown said that he is waiting for the D.A. to criminally charge Gordon with his daughter's death saying, "Until then, just knowing that he's legally responsible for my daughter's death has given me a bit of calmness to waiting for that D.A.. There's a lot of strange things that will come out in the criminal charges against Nick."
  • Bobby's interview with T.D. Jakes airs tomorrow (September 28th).

  • Xtina has not confirmed a new album as yet.


HILARY DUFF SORTA CONFIRMS NEW RELATIONSHIP

During a recent appearance on Fox 5's Good Day New York, Rosanna Scotto asked Duff, "The last time you were here you were talking about going on Tinder. … And then I see pictures of you and some guy named Jason … have we found a little like in our life?"

JAY Z CALLED OUT FOR STEALING AN INDEPENDENT CLOTHING BRAND'S DESIGNS
Jay Z's former clothing company, Rocawear, is catching fire for allegedly ripping off the independent brand, Marshstepper Designs. According to HipHopDx.com, J.S. Aurelius has called out the rapper and Rocawear, asking for royalties. In a number of social media posts, Aurelius has made note of similarities between his designs and Rocawear's. Aurelius posted a photo of a Rocawear vest sold at Nordstrom Rack and said, "Yo jay z / @rocawear where are my royalties? Where’s my licensing fee?"

Aurelius also took his claims to Facebook, saying, "Never settle for something that doesn't seem right to you. Raise h*ll if you have to, never settle for less." In a separate post, he wrote, "If I ultimately thought my ideas were capable of being diminished by cheap knock-offs, then my ideas rise no higher than the level of consumer goods. If I thought they were recoupable via the validation of a judge or of some international luxury brand, they'd fail to transcend the social forms of greed and oppression that limit human development and flourishing. I, however, think we can exceed and transcend these limits. I think the depth of support y'all have shown for myself (and other artists or activists being taken advantage of) is proof that a lot of people agree. I would just remind you to remain conscious of the methods we use and priorities we hold in this struggle."

  • Although Jay was included in the bashing, he sold the brand to Damon Dash back in 2007.
