Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson says he's the "luckiest guy in the world" after wasting little time pursuing Ariana Grande.

The 24-year-old says he's moved into a Manhattan apartment that Grande bought. Davidson says she calls it our house because they're getting married. He says he responded, "Thank you for letting me stay here."

Paul Walker’s brothers open to playing his ‘Fast and Furious’ character again

Nearly five years after Paul Walker's death, his brothers say they're open to playing his character again in the Fast and Furious franchise.
Producers asked Caleb and Cody Walker to fill in for their brother and help complete Furious 7 after he died in a fiery off-set car crash in November 2013.

His face was digitally superimposed onto his brothers' performances for scenes that Walker had not yet shot and in a modified ending in which his character Brian O'Conner drives off into the sunset.

The character remains alive in the fictional Fast universe and is mentioned twice in 2017's The Fate of the Furious.

"I just hope we get to — I don't know — have a little cameo and bring Paul back to save the day and I get to help create that again," Caleb Walker, 40, said. "That's my dream and I hope we get to do that in one of the future movies."

The next scheduled film in the "Fast" franchise is a spin-off featuring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. It's set for release next year.

What is Paul McCartney doing singing about ‘I want to fuh you’

The man who co-wrote I Want to Hold Your Hand more than a half century ago is speaking more directly these days.

Sir Paul McCartney released a new single on Wednesday called Fuh You, where the key line — "I want to fuh you" — contains a fudged version of a common obscenity.

The 76-year-old former Beatle described it in a news release as "sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song."

The song has been made available on digital and streaming platforms, so radio airplay doesn't appear to be an issue. The song will be included in his first album of all-new material since 2013, Egypt Station, which is due for release on Sept. 7.
