One Love Manchester Recap
Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester concert raised over $12M for the cause. During the show alone, over $2.5M donations came flooding in (some reports say $3M). She thanked fans for coming out and explained that they originally had a whole different show planned for the evening, but she met up with one of the victim’s moms who inspired her to change all that – the woman said her daughter would’ve just wanted to have heard the hits. Ariana closed the show with a rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, where she fought back tears the whole time.
Even Piers Morgan had a change of heart about Ariana. After Piers Morgan criticized Ariana Grande for leaving the UK and heading back to the states after her bombing, he has apologized. Piers tweeted “I misjudged you, and I apologize. You’re an admirable young woman, and this is a magnificent night.”
Bieber had a great moment at the show last night:

Kanye West Wants to Design HS Athletic Wear
Kanye West has reportedly made an offer to Calabasas High School in California to donate a ton of money to their athletic program and provide uniforms, in exchange for renaming them from the Coyotes to the Wolves (which is the name of one of his songs) and changing their school colors. Apparently some of the basketball and football players that come from that HS have become pretty high-profile, and they already have a deal with Adidas which is what Kanye has a deal with… so it makes sense that Kanye wants to align himself with that school.
