Bill Gates looked happy as can be arriving in NYC for his daughter Jennifer’s upcoming wedding, touching down via helicopter with family friends.

Bill Gates, 65, was all smiles when he arrived in New York City for his daughter Jennifer‘s wedding this Saturday, touching down at the heliport with family and friends. The Microsoft founder exited a helicopter with a small group of people and looked excited for the upcoming big day. He was dressed casual for the occasion, sporting a brown polo shirt, navy blue trousers, and sneakers. Bill also carried a brown leather bag and also wrapped a long-sleeve sweater around his waist.

Bill’s arrival in the city comes after his ex-wife, Melinda Gates, 57, touched down ahead of the big event to spend some time with Jennifer. The mother-daughter duo took on the big city, photographed outside the famed Plaza Hotel on Oct. 13 as they geared up for Jennifer to walk down the aisle with fiancé Nayel Nassar, 30, a millionaire equestrian. Melinda and Jennifer also hit up Tribeca’s Salon M while the mom was in town — a spa which includes massages, manicures, and pedicures. Despite their separation, both parents looked happier than ever to support their oldest daughter ahead of her nuptials.

Before spending time with her mother, Jennifer was spotted in Manhattan grabbing coffee with an unidentified friend. She was also seen heading into Sania’s Brow Bar, where she stayed for 20 minutes. The ginger-haired beauty also had fun at a pre-wedding party thrown by her mom last month. Jennifer’s fiancé Nayel Nassar, 30, was also spotted in NYC at one point, sitting in his car and smiling while hanging out with his soon-to-be wife. The Gates family reportedly had heavy security in two, including seven guards and four vehicles.

Jennifer’s farm — where the wedding will reportedly take place — was gifted to her by her parents following her graduation from Stanford University. The venue, containing 124 acres, is set up with large pavilions with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and is valued at $16 million. We’re sure the wedding will look spectacular and can’t wait to see photos from the event!

Selena Gomez Claps Back At Troll For Criticizing Her Drinking Joke After Kidney Transplant

Selena Gomez Claps Back At Troll For Criticizing Her Drinking Joke After Kidney Transplant

A social media user criticized Selena Gomez for her joking about heavy drinking after getting a kidney transplant. Then the actress fought back.

Selena Gomez didn’t find one fan’s comment about her drinking very funny. The drama all began when the Only Murders in the Building actress posted a funny reaction TikTok to Dr. Dawn Bantel’s description of what constitutes “heavy drinking” for men and women. “The CDC defines heavy drinking as 15 or more drinks a week for men,” Dr. Dawn explained as Selena jokingly raised her eyebrows. “And 8 or more drinks per week for women.”

Although the “Ice Cream” singer captioned the video by saying, “it’s a joke,” some TikTok users didn’t think her take on heavy drinking was very funny.

“So one of your best friends gives you her kidney and you continue to drink excessively,” a user wrote. “Damn Selena.” After the person wrote in the critique, the 29-year-old clapped back, “It was a joke ass.” Following Selena’s response, numerous fans came to her defense, with one writing, “The fact you need to say that this is a joke [pleading face emoji]…I love you.”

In Sept. 2017, Selena announced she had received a kidney transplant from her friend, Francia Raisa, 33, while battling lupus. In an interview on Today during that time, Selena shared how her pal saved her life with the organ donation. “I guess I got to the point where it was really, kind of, life or death,” she shared. Since her surgery, the “Lose You to Love Me” singer has advocated for kidney donations, using her platform to call out controversial jokes about the subject.

In August 2021, the pop star called out the show The Good Fight for joking about her situation, writing, “I am not sure how writing jokes about organ transplants for television shows has become a thing but sadly it has apparently,” she shared. “I hope in the next writer’s room when one of these tasteless jokes are presented it’s called out immediately and doesn’t make it on air.” Moreover, fans came to Selena’s defense when the Saved By the Bell reboot also made light of the subject, leading the network to issue a formal apology.

Sandra Bullock Wishes Her Skin Color ‘Matched’ Her Adopted Kids’: It’d Make Life ‘Easier’

Sandra Bullock discusses motherhood in a new ‘Red Table Talk,’ revealing that she sometimes wishes her skin ‘matched’ her adopted children Louis and Laila, who are both Black.

Sandra Bullock will open up about her experiences of being a mother to two Black children. The actress, 57, will chat about parenthood in the Wednesday, Dec. episode of Red Table Talk. In a sneak peek shared ahead of the new episode, Sandra speaks candidly about wishing that her skin color “matched” her adopted children, son Louis, 11, and daughter Laila, 9.

“To say that I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do,” she says to co-hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris. “Because then it would be easier on how people approach us. And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin with her babies or a white woman with white babies.”

“It’s the mother-child dynamic,” Willow adds. “There is no color.” Sandra adds, “Maybe one day that will go away. Maybe one day we will be able to see with different eyes.” The actress adopted her son Louis in 2010, when he was just 3 months old. She adopted big sister Laila in 2015, when she was 3.

In a cover story for PEOPLE in 2015, the Oscar winner opened up about her son was “ready” for Laila “before she even arrived,” noting that the topic came up at a dinner with friends. “He puts his hands behind his head and leans back and says, ‘I don’t have daughters,’” she recalled. “And we agreed as well that he didn’t have daughters, and then he said, ‘but I’m gonna have a baby soon. I don’t know its name yet, but it’s coming.’”

Sandra called Louis a “wise old soul and often knows more than I give him credit for,” adding, “I think he was ready for her before she even arrived.” That same year, while speaking to BET, the actress spoke about racism, addressing whether or not she’s had conversations with Louis about Black Lives Matter and racism in the country.

The star said she was “absolutely” having those conversations, adding, “It’s an open conversation that we have. He fully understands what that means. He doesn’t understand why people judge each other based on color of their skin, but he knows they do. He also knows that there’s sexism, he knows that there’s homophobia. He knows a lot for a 5-and-3-quarter year old.”

She added that the sooner parents have those conversations, the better.  “I think if you don’t start the conversation very early on, you’re doing them a disservice,” Sandra said. “I can’t ride in a bubble with him. I want him to know the truth, but I also want him to know the good in the world as well. Those are hard conversations to have, you know.”

“It’s not any conversation any parent wants to have with their child, is that you’ll be judged by the color of your skin rather than the content of your character,” Sandra continued. “But it exists, and I want him to be safe and I want him to be aware. Once he leaves that house and I’m not with him, it’s his life and how he approaches it is his decision. But I want to know that I did the best I could as his mom to educate him on the ugliness in the world, and also the beauty.”

Justin Bieber Transforms Into A Priest For New Balenciaga Ad: ‘It’s Fashion Darling’

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber posed in a long black robe-like jacket and chunky square-toed boots as he gave a serious facial expression to the camera in the epic ad photo, which he shared on social media.

Justin Bieber, 27, looked almost unrecognizable in one of the pics from his new Balenciaga ad! The singer posed in an outfit that resembled a priest’s robe in the epic photo and showed off an intense and serious facial expression. The look included a floor-length black jacket, black square-toed chunky boots, and a lanyard around his neck that held a bunch of keys.

It’s fashion darling,” Justin captioned the pic, which also featured the brand name across it, on Instagram on Nov. 30. Once he shared the headline-making snapshot, it didn’t take long for fans to comment and they had a lot to say!

“Pastor Bieber,” one fan wrote while another called him “Father Bieber.” A third called him a “cutiepie” and a fourth compared the robe-like jacket to a blanket. Others wrote about how “beautiful” he looked in the pic and one simply but effectively put, “Wow.”

This is not the first time Justin has gotten attention for a Balenciaga ad photo. In July, he had people talking about a look that showed off a streetwear style that included an oversized black leather jacket over a black hoodie, black sweatpants, white socks, and gray and red sneakers. He also held a black “City” handbag. In Sept., he also posed for the brand in a black shirt under a denim jacket, black sweatpants, white socks, and blue and white sneakers and held another black handbag.

When Justin’s not posing for big fashion names like Balenciaga, he’s posing in his own Drew brand, like in the pics above. The bright yellow logo is a smiley face that gives off a lighthearted vibe on whatever piece of clothing it’s on and has been a bit hit with Justin’s family, friends, and fans. His wife Hailey Baldwin also sometimes sports Drew outfits, showing off her full support for her hubby and his creative endeavors. One of her most recent pics in Drew clothing showed her rocking a pink Drew sweatshirt while holding a puppy.
