Quickies: Taylor Swift, Geri Halliwell, Ariana Grande & More
TAYLOR SWIFT’S STALKER PLEADS GUILTY TO BREAKING INTO HER NYC HOME A SECOND TIME: Taylor Swift’s stalker, Roger Alvarado, pleaded guilty Monday to breaking into the singer’s New York City apartment last month. Alvarado, 23, accepted a plea deal in Manhattan Supreme Court. He will be sentenced on April 15th and is expected to get two to four years in prison. Alvarado was arrested March 7th after he broke into a townhouse Taylor owns in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood. He allegedly climbed a ladder to the townhouse, used a brick to break a glass window and then attempted to remove property from inside. Taylor wasn’t in the townhouse at the time, which is currently being renovated. Taylor already has an order of protection against Alvarado from a 2018 incident, in which he broke into the same location, used her shower and was found sleeping in her bed.
SPICE GIRLS’ GERI HALLIWELL BREAKS SILENCE AFTER MEL B CLAIMS THEY HOOKED UP: Mel B recently said she had hooked up once with Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell during their Spice Girls days, but now, Geri’s rep is denying those rumors. "It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on U.K. Mother’s Day of all days. Geri loves the Spice Girls: Emma, Melanie, Melanie and Victoria. She would like the fans to know that what has been reported recently is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family," her rep told the Daily Mail. "Moving forward, Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories," her rep added. Sources told The Mail that their relationship actually lasted "at least 12 months." The Spice Girls (minus Victoria), are reuniting to go on tour this summer.

PINK SLAMS TROLLS SHAMING HER SON’S BODY: Pink is firing back at trolls over a photo of her son. It all started when Pink posted a photo of her with her two kids, Willow, 7, and Jameson, 2. Pink didn’t realize Jameson had removed his beach diaper. Pink then deleted and reposted the photo, but blurred out her son’s private area. In the caption of the photo, she wrote, "There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper." She continued, "I deleted it because you’re all f*cking disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, And the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh. Here’s a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby penis in its face."
