playoff day, Jersey day
The Toronto Raptors won their first Game 1 of a playoff series for the first time in 17 years on Saturday, beating the Washington Wizards to take a 1-0 lead in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. A sweet, sweet victory, and what made the game even sweeter was the team’s ambassador (oh, and rap superstar) Drake cheering them on from the sidelines. But instead of wearing any old Raptors or OVO swag, Drake proudly sported a Humboldt Broncos jersey to pay tribute to the 16 lives lost in the tragic bus crash earlier this month.

It got even more emotional following the game. Drake showed up in the Raptors locker room and asked the players to sign the jersey. Try not to tear up, we dare you.
Last night was bigger than basketball.

How Drake uses his fame and love for the city of Toronto has always been commendable but for him to get the team to sign the jersey (which will presumably raise funds for the families of Humboldt) shows what kind of human being he is and that he, like the rest of the country, continues to grieve for Humboldt. Such a simple, lovely gesture that will mean so, so much.
Bieber punched a dude in the face, but it was for good reason, we swear
No, no, Justin Bieber isn’t going back ot his old, reckless ways. Rather, the singer came to the rescue of a woman who was being assaulted by a man at a Coachella party. According to TMZ, a man allegedly “went ballistic” and grabbed a woman by the throat. Bieber and a friend yelled at the guy to let her go, and when he didn’t Justin “hit the man in the face and pushed him against the wall … allowing the woman to break free.”
TMZ reported the man — who appeared to be on drugs — later chased an SUV believing that Bieber was inside. He was eventually arrested. The dude, not Bieber. Biebs might be charged for his dancing, though.

The Weeknd and Bella Hadid were doing a little kissing at Coachella
The Weeknd‘s new album, specifically the track “Call Out My Name,” may be about his ex, Selena Gomez, but it’s another one of his ex-girlfriends who is keeping him even busier. People reports that Abel and Bella Hadid were packing on the PDA at a Coachella pop-up party.
“The Weeknd and Bella were sitting on each other’s laps and all over each other all night long,” a witness told the mag. “They definitely looked like they were fully back together.”
But looks can be deceiving. E! reports that The Weeknd was spotted walking around Coachella on Saturday with his arm around Chantel Jeffries. The two were also seen hugging, her head on his shoulder, but friends do that so maybe it’s purely platonic. Either way, Abel loves the ladies and it’s clear they feel the same way about him.
Ugh, Khloe’s totally gonna take Tristan back, isn’t she?
Nooooooooooooooo! It seems after all the reports of Tristan Thompson‘s alleged cheating, Khloe Kardashian is able to forgive him, because she’s blinded by the joy and love their new baby is giving her.
“Khloe is feeling nothing but happiness right now,” a source told People. “She is head over heels in love with her little girl — she is just consumed with love. Absolutely nothing else matters.”
The insider continued: “She’s so incredibly happy that her baby is here, that she is big and strong and healthy and beautiful, and so right now Khloe truly has no other cares in the world. She isn’t even mad at Tristan right now. She’s basically already forgiven him.”
Ugh, there’s more. “She is in a bubble of love and peace and happiness right now, and everything that happened with Tristan is less about ‘cheating’ and more like, it was just a random drunken hookup that meant nothing and was kissing at most and didn’t lead to anything else and was the fault of stupid groupies trying to trap him, and everybody just needs to move on.”
The source explained that Khloe just “loves this baby so much, and this baby is one half Tristan, and she loves Tristan. All is forgiven, all is right with the world. For this precise moment, anyway.”
Oh, Khloe. She’s the definition of “hopeless romantic,” in every sense. It’s clear she had this happy family picture in her head and wants to make it work, but once time goes by and the dust settles, she has to know that these weren’t random hookups and he’s a serial cheater, right? RIGHT?!
Carrie Underwood’s face looks exactly the same, what’s all the fuss about?
It was last November that Carrie Underwood had an accident at her home, falling down some steps which resulted in a broken wrist and other injuries. But we soon learned there was more to it and that she did some real damage to her face. She needed 40-50 stitches on her face and revealed to fans that she didn’t quite look the same. Any photos Underwood posted on her Instagram from the time of the accident up until the weekend have either been shots from a distance or partial pics of her face, but we all knew she was set to perform new music at Sunday’s ACM Awards so of course everyone wanted to see just how much Carrie’s changed.
OK, this shot was from rehearsal and, frankly, she looks like … Carrie Underwood. If there’s any scarring, the doctor did fabulous work because you can’t really see it, though maybe makeup does wonders? Of course, it’s her face, and she’s probably super-self-conscious and hypercritical of it but she’s still as beautiful as ever. After being away all this time, she crushed it. In every way possible.
