Police investigates Ariana Grande’s licking doughnuts and left it as it is without purchasing!

Police said Wednesday they were investigating video that appears to show Ariana Grande licking doughnuts at a shop in California. Earlier, Grande apologized for saying “I hate America” in the same video.

Police in Lake Elsinore, California, where the doughnut shop is located, said they and Riverside County public health officials were investigating the leaked video, which appeared to show the 22-year-old singer and a man with her “maliciously lick” the doughnuts.
Mayra Solis, 22, a cashier on duty at Wolfee Donuts when Grande went into the store, said the singer didn’t purchase any of the doughnuts she licked.
“She was really rude,” Solis told The Associated Press.
Earlier Wednesday, Grande said in a statement to the AP that she’s a proud American.
“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the doughnuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words,” the statement read.
In the video posted Tuesday by TMZ, Grande says “What … is that? I hate Americans. I hate America” when a tray of doughnuts appears in front of her.
Grande said she chose to express herself as she did because she leads a  healthy lifestyle and is upset with “how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences.”
“The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rates in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies,” she said. “However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better.”
Asked about the police investigation, Grande’s representatives said she would not have further comment.
Grande also announced Wednesday that she would not perform at the MLB All-Star Concert on Saturday. She said it had nothing to do with the leaked video.
“As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show,” she said. “That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.”

James Reid shoots down rumor linking him to Julia Barretto!

James Reid finally broke his silence on rumors that he is currently seeing Julia Barretto after they were supposedly spotted having a coffee date recently.

In an interview with Cinema News, Reid stressed that he is not dating Barretto and they have never been on a coffee date.

Screen shot 2015-07-08 at 3.02.00 PM“Go out? No, no. They said that we are in the coffee shop? No,” he said.

Reid and Barretto were co-stars in the movie “Para sa Hopeless Romantic.” Although they have already worked together, the actor said he does not even have Barretto’s number.

Meanwhile, Reid admitted he is sad that some supporters of his team-up with Nadine Lustre bashed him online when the rumor made the rounds.

“It’s just like, sometimes, when I’m looking at my Instagram and looking at the comments and stuff, sometimes it hurts knowing the bashers are the fans. They have the name ‘JaDine,’ and sometimes I don’t know the difference,” he said.

Nonetheless, the actor said he is grateful for his fans who defend him.

“They said I’m quiet about it. I don’t have to explain myself in everything that comes out because it’s not worth my time. I don’t really mind, but I’m just grateful to have fans, they defend me and don’t listen easily,” he said.

In an interview over the weekend, Lustre admitted that she also gets affected by rumors romantically linking Reid to Barretto.

“Apektado po ako dahil ka-trabaho ko po si James and siyempre hindi po maganda na siya ang tinitira ng bashers. Aminado naman po kami na we are not together, pero sana po hindi maapektuhan ang pagta-trabaho namin sa isa’t isa,” she said.

Lustre, however, explained that she has nothing against Barretto.
