Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Meghan Trainor Opens Up About Life With Panic Disorder: 'I'm not Ashamed To Say I'm On Antidepressants'


Meghan Trainor is opening up about her experience with panic disorder, sharing that she had her first panic attack on live television.


"I was announcing the [Grammy] nominees, and I was vibrating. I felt like I was going to pass out on live television. I was like, 'What's happening? I must be dying,'" the singer told People about her appearance on CBS This Morning in Dec. 2016. "As soon as they said 'Cut,' I went offstage and was [gasping for air] in front of everyone."


Trainor, 27, recalled that she had been going over her schedule with her team earlier that morning, which triggered the anxious response. Luckily, she shared that Gayle King was helpful in calming her down. "I was so embarrassed and apologized, but she made everything so much better for me," Trainor said. "She's an angel on this earth."


Still, Trainor hadn't experienced the worst of it until she suffered from a vocal cord injury that led her to get surgery. At the time, she feared that she would never be able to sing again.


"I was in a dark place," she said. "I had everything I wanted — I had the love of my life — but mentally and physically I felt ill."

The symptoms that she was experiencing placed her in the hospital on multiple occasions. Finally, one of those trips brought her to a doctor who was able to provide a diagnosis.


"Some nights I remember I ate a bunch of food, then I got scared, and I was like, 'I need to go to the emergency room because I'm allergic to what I just ate.' The doctor came in, looked really sad, and was like, 'Have you ever heard of a panic attack?' I was like, 'No, no, no, I'm having an allergic reaction. If you just look in the back of my throat, it's closing,'" she explained. "That was my first lesson on what a panic attack can do to you."


Panic disorder is defined as "an anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear," according to the National Institute National Institute Ot Mental Health.


"Physical symptoms may include chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness or abdominal distress. These episodes occur 'out of the blue,' not in conjunction with a known fear or stressor."


Trainor was candid about seeking help from a psychiatrist through therapy and medication.


"With the panic [attacks], you literally feel like you're vibrating nonstop. But everything just got quiet, and I was back to my normal self," she said of her treatment. "I'm not ashamed to say I'm on antidepressants. That medicine saved me, saved my life, saved my career. I'm back better than ever.”

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor.

The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.
