When Katy Perry made a stop during her Witness tour on National Coming Out Day, she had something extra special to do for two lucky fans. The «Swish Swish» singer was performing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, when she invited a couple to join her on stage. She told one of them (who was also named Katy, coincidentally), «You said you had a wish. Well, this is a shooting star,» while pointing at a glittery star hanging near them. «What’s your wish, Katy?» she asked.
The fan responded, «Well, I don’t know if you all have seen Becky, but she’s pretty even without any makeup on,» while looking at her girlfriend in front of the crowd. And that’s when she got down on one knee to pop the big question as the audience (and Katy Perry) collectively freaked out over how epic and adorable the proposal was. Of course, Becky said yes!
If you’re in need of a heartwarming pick-me-up, watch footage of the sweet proposal in the video below. File this one under videos to watch on a sad, rainy day.
Tired of all the kneeling nonsense that gets drummed up by both sides to keep the narrative going? Me too. So let’s move on to more important things like if this Instagram model Yasmine Nicole is really dating Dak Prescott or if she’s just pulling our leg with this coy act she’s been putting on via social media.
This all started on October 1 when Yasmine attended a Cowboys game wearing a Dak shirtsey. Cowboys fans caught wind of this, started freaking out and then another pic was posted Sunday, implying she was at the Packers game. That has led to more speculation.
Trevor Story lost some shine in his sophomore campaign with the Rockies (struck out almost 200 times, .308 OBP), but he still socked 24 home runs and had a strong month of September to help his squad secure the second NL Wild Card spot. That may not seem like a big deal, but this is the Rockies’ first playoff appearance since 2009 — the stoners in Denver have been waiting a long time for this.
And we don’t want to get Rockies fans too excited, but Trevor has a solid track record against Zack Greinke. He’s 8-24 lifetime with four home runs against the D’Backs’ ace so he’s definitely a potential X-Factor in tonight’s game.
As for Trevor’s personal situation, he already has a girfriend in Mallie Crow. They celebrated six years together this past March, so they’ve journeyed from the minors to the majors together.
The Yankees only have two left-handed relievers in their bullpen for tonight’s Wild Card Game against the Twins: Aroldis Chapman and… Chasen Shreve. Yankees fans probably would have liked to see Jaime Garcia or Jordan Montgomery instead, but Joe Girardi is going with Chasen, who put up a 3.77 ERA in 45.1 innings this season.
That being said, we probably won’t see Chasen take the mound tonight considering the Yankees pen has like five guys who could be closers elsewhere. Girardi likely won’t need to go any deeper unless the game goes to extras.
Off the field, Chasen is dating Coastal Carolina University alum (and former cheerleader) Shannon Kenney. Looks like they’ve been together around a year.
Per Golf.com, Tiger was spotted at the Presidents Cup with 33-year-old Erica Herman, who had a players’ spouse credential and was walking Liberty National with the former face of golf. She also hung out with some fellow WAGs — Daniel Berger’s girlfriend, Victoria Slater, dropped this group pic that featured Tiger’s new flame (as well as Paulina G, Allison Stokke):
A post on TigerWoods.com notes Herman is the general manager of The Woods restaurant in Jupiter.
Tiger, of course, revealed in August that he and personal stylist Kristin Smith were no longer an item and haven’t dated since 2016. He (and ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn) then dealt with a nude picture scandal, so we’re happy to see something finally break Tiger’s way.
Sam Heughan has popped up in our dreams more times than we care to admit (yes, there were kilts involved), but it looks as though being Mrs. Heughan is something that will only happen when we’re fast asleep. The Outlander actor looked all sorts of fine when he was photographed talking a stroll in NYC with his girlfriend, MacKenzie Mauzy, on Thursday. Sam, who, dare we say it, looks almost hotter with short hair, sweetly had his arm around MacKenzie as they made their way around the city.
Rumors of a romance between the two started swirling in 2015 when he attended her 27th birthday bash, but it’s still unclear when they officially started dating. But this outing definitely proves they adore each other. Sigh. We’ll just see you in our dreams tonight, Sam!
White Sox outfielder Nicky Delmonico put me out of my misery Wednesday night as he ended the Angels’ postseason hopes with a 10th inning walk-off bomb off Blake Parker. It stung a little bit, but I’m more than relieved to not have to care about the last four games of the season.
The death knell for Mike Trout’s postseason hopes, in case you missed it:
Delmonico has definitely impressed since getting the call in early August. He’s slashing .266/.377/.496 with nine home runs and 23 RBI in just 41 games. Considering all the other young pieces in the organization (Moncada, Kopech, Giolito, Cease, Eloy), the Sox might not be terrible much longer.
Off the field, Delmonico is also hitting dingers as he’s dating former “So You Think You Can Dance” contestant Tiffany Maher. She was the runner-up in Season 9 and graduated from UFC back in 2015.
We’ve got somber news for all the desperate jersey chasers in Denver who want a piece of quarterback Trevor Siemian: the man already has a girlfriend in fellow Northwestern alum Bo Podkopacz. Trevor’s IG may not be the most active page in the world, but he low-key dropped some pictures with his college sweetheart over the summer:
It’s a little early to be worrying about the Heisman Trophy, but Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is firmly in the discussion through three weeks of the season. That’s just how it goes when you’ve racked up 548 total yards (241 of which have come as a receiver) and five touchdowns.
Texas has a little quarterback controversy on their hands after true freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger nearly sent USC fans home in tears last Saturday.
Ehlinger started the game on a rocky note, but he finished with 298 yards and two touchdowns against the No. 4 team in the nation. This 91-yard drive that gave Texas a brief 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter came so, so close to being the signature moment of his collegiate career (two games in!):
