The Jonas Brothers visited a local hospital in Hersey, Pennsylvania, while on their worldwide tour to visit teenage fan Lily Jordan on Saturday night.

Lily was undergoing chemotherapy and was unable to make the Jonas Brothers concert she had originally bought tickets for due to her health.

Social media followers shared Jordan's Facebook post inviting the group to see her in hospital, which said;

“I was supposed to be at your Hersey concert tomorrow but instead I’m across the street doing chemotherapy,” Jordan wrote in an Instagram post. “If y’all wanted to pop in I’ll give you my room.”

“Seriously though I wish I was seeing the Jonas Brothers so bad so like? I don't know, tag them or put this on your story or something for lil' old me,” she added.

The youngster has been battling cancer bravely for years, and said that the band's visit to Penn State Children's Hospital 'made her life'.

“Thanks for inviting us,” 31-year-old Kevin says in a clip from the visit, shared online by the hospital. “We saw your message, we had to come over,” added 30-year-old Joe.

“Do you have a favourite song that we can dedicate to you?” 26-year-old Nick asked, as Priyanka Chopra promised that the boys would send her a video of their performance.

“Definitely S.O.S.,” Jordan replied. “That’s my favourite.” Jordan offered a gift to Joe's wife, Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark in HBO series Game of Thrones.

“I have something that I wanted to give Sophie,” Lily told Joe, offering a handmade bracelet.

“I love her so much, so I wanted to give her that,” she added, explaining that the colours matched the Stark house banner, which was hung behind Lily's bed.

“Thank you thank you thank you @jonasbrothers for taking time out of your day to come pay me a visit. Literally made my life,” she added.

A Pink fan has delivered a baby in Liverpool's Anfield Stadium last night while watching her musical hero in concert.

The party got started earlier than expected when Denise Jones went into labour during Pink's set.

The 32-year-old welcomed a baby girl with the aid of two on-site medics while the singer performed high-flying opening song Get The Party Started.

Of course, Denise simply had to give a tribute to her idol with the choice of baby name. The new mum called her daughter Dolly Pink to remember the concert where her newborn baby was unexpectedly born.

"Baby Dolly Pink: Born at Anfield while watching Pink in concert! Mum and baby are doing amazing, thank you to the amazing paramedics that delivered her!" Chloe Dryhurst wrote on Twitter.

Medics John Matthews and Dani Berg threw themselves into the action after receiving a call about a pregnant woman in labour, and they navigated through fans across Anfield to locate her.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@pink) on

Matthews told The Liverpool Echo, that they moved Denise out of the crowd and into the first aid room as fast as possible;

“When we reached her, it was quite clear the patient was heavily pregnant and showing signs of being in labour."

“We continued to assess her and established she was going to have to deliver the baby in the stadium as there was not enough time to get her to hospital,” he continued. 

Jones delivered the baby “all naturally” and without “pain relief,” due to the lack of equipment or supplies in the stadium.

“It took less than five minutes,” Matthews explained. “We didn’t have time to get concerned or worried, we just had to crack on and get on with it.”

The birth was without complications, thankfully, and Jones welcomed her little girl weighing six pounds, four-and-a-half ounces. Mother and baby are said to be doing very well.

Dolly Pink's original name was Dolly Louise, Jones thought a change needed to be made given the surprising circumstances.

“I’m still massively in shock, just a bit gutted I missed the concert,” Denise joked. “But I couldn’t be any happier right now. The plan was to call her Dolly Louise but since she was born in the concert we’ve changed it to Dolly Pink.”

The Walk Me Home singer made sure to give the newborn her stamp of approval, writing to her Instagram page; “Dolly Pink wanted to get the party started".

We're fairly sure she's going to grow up into a music icon herself.

They continued, ''Ciere was super excited to meet them as you can see and said it was a pleasure to look after them. Thank you @pink for stopping by and being so lovely to all our staff. We look forward to seeing you again.''

Right, were heading to town and see if we can get a selfie because we LOVE her.

Scottish-born singer and nephew of Peter Capaldi, Lewis Capaldi, has won hearts all over the nation with his HILARIOUS social media antics and voice of a gravelly angel.

His new album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, is out May 17 and features his UK Number 1 platinum-selling single Someone You Loved. It's officially the longest running number one single of the past 25 years, so he's hit the big time.

Part of the reason why he's found chart success is his campaigning on Twitter and Instagram, using absolutely gas photos of himself sporting various eccentric sunglasses and filming his strange antics.

If you haven't seen the thread of him having to unclog his toilet, you've missed out. Our personal fave is the stream of himself listening to Ariana Grande's latest album, which was set to knock his tune out of the charts.

In fact, his song made it back into the top 10, reaching number one and staying there. We're SO glad it did, because this down-to-earth chap with a love for Tinder deserves it.

After supporting Picture This at their five consecutive 3Arena nights recently, Capaldi is coming back to Dublin for his very own 2020 arena tour. 

Sunday March 8, 2020 at Dublin's 3Arena sold out in minutes, as well as the rest of the UK tour dates, but our boy has hooked us up with an extra date on March 9, 2020.

He's also initiating his special LIVELIVE programme to support fans experiencing emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending shows.

 

There'll be a team at each venue who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have. Capaldi created the scheme after his own experiences with anxiety had a dramatic effect on him.

Speaking about the idea, the singer said; "I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows."

The 22-year-old's tunes have been streamed over 600,000 times, and the youngster was shortlisted for the BBC Critics Choice Award. Tickets from €37.35 are on sale now via Ticketmaster, grab yours now.

Gardaí are currently investigating an incident at the 3Arena during a Shawn Mendes concert involving a teenage girl.

Allegedly, the young woman was 'sexually assaulted' in the bathroom at the Canadian pop singer's sold-out gig in Dublin.

The teenager took to social media to write about her experience, and confirmed that she had explained the situation to the Gardaí.

She wrote: "On Saturday 13th of April I attended a Shawn Mendes concert in a well known Dublin venue near the docks."

"During a visit to the toilets I was sexually assaulted by an unknown person. The venue is aware of this and so are the guards." she continued.

"This is a warning to anybody attending any event from now on not to go to the toilet on your own," she said, shedding light on the lack of safety even at public events.

Two more women have come forward to accuse R&B singer R Kelly of sexual misconduct, dating back to when they were 15 and 16 years old.

The latest allegations are the newest in a string of claims against the singer going back three decades, spanning child pornography to sexual, emotional and physical abuse and holding women captive in a sex cult.

The duo spoke out against the notorious artist at a press conference with infamous women's rights lawyer Gloria Allred yesterday.

Both women allege that the sexual misconduct happened in 1995 after they attended an R Kelly and LL Cool J concert in Baltimore, Maryland.

One of the ladies said she was just 16 years old and living in the city when her and a 15-year-old friend, the other alleged victim, attended the concert.

They went to an after-party at a nightclub, and Kelly pointed to the two girls and asked his staff to put them onstage. They were also offered drugs and alcohol at the party, they claim.

The woman said Kelly asked the two girls to meet him in his hotel suite, and that he entered the room wearing jeans and a white t-shirt, with his penis “out and over the top of his pants”.

Apparently, Kelly asked both girls to dance and he ended up lying on the bed with them, telling them they could be in his next music video.

Next, the singer began touching the young woman's breast and genitals, and asked the pair to engage in a threesome. Her friend said no and went to the bathroom.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by The Drama Club (@dramaclubpod) on

The woman said Kelly requested oral sex from her, which she did, and then he had sexual intercourse with her.

She had been under the influence of alcohol and marijuana that had been given to her at the after-party, and alleges she “did not have the capacity to consent”.

In Maryland, the age of consent is 16. The two women never saw R Kelly again.

Despite the huge range of allegations against the singer, his lawyer Steve Greenberg denied all accusations against Kelly, saying he has never knowingly had sexual relations with underage women.

Iconic singer Kylie Minogue has been left 'very shaken' after a man refused to leave her London home, and launched 'sustained campaign' of harassment, The Sun reported.  

Following a complaint by the singer, the man has been issued with a harassment warning. Police were called to a house in Chelsea and Kensington on January 23, according to the Metropolitan Police.

The mystery man reportedly asked her neighbours where the 50-year-old singer lived, and then pressed the intercom, refusing to leave. Security has since been increased at her West London house as a result.

The man, who is in his 40s, was lurking around her home for days, and her neighbours spotted him a number of times requesting to know where Kylie lives.

A nearby resident in West London said: "It came to a head when the man repeatedly pressed the intercom button to her home for hours on end last week and refused to leave." 

The resident continued; "Kylie was quite upset and called in police. They spoke to Kylie, and also the suspect in the street for quite a while." She has taken 'sensible steps' to stop this from happening again.

Another neighbour said: "A weirdo guy was lurking around. He went door to door asking people where Kylie lived."  The man repeated the singer's name again and again, in a disturbing manner.

The apparent stalker was described as wearing a raincoat and possessing a European accent.

The star suffered another security issue a few months ago when a man made threats against her before her German performance in November.

She was then guarded by 20 police officers who were armed at her next concert in Belgium. Images of the suspect were plastered around the venue and all male concert-goers were frisked heavily.

"I wrote this because I want everyone to remember the man you were. You were a gentle giant with a heart so big everyone felt it. I love you so much. We were supposed to meet for hot chocolate next week.
