My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, she told us. She told us that this would be a strong fire year and it has been. Temperatures are high. Tensions are high. But also… celebrities are high as f-ck on love, holy sh-t.
Just to recap: Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson got engaged after dating, what?, a month? Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged after re-dating, what?, less than a month? Michelle Williams confirmed yesterday that she and Phil Elverum are married. And now…
PEOPLE is reporting that Nick proposed last week in London when they were there celebrating Priyanka’s birthday. Apparently he shut down Tiffany in New York the week before when he bought the ring. The speculation started last night though with this tweet:
Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her ... Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life 😊😉😍— ali abbas zafar (@aliabbaszafar) July 27, 2018
That’s two months. Two months since Memorial Day weekend when they were first seen together. But it was serious from the get. Because he took her to his cousin’s wedding. Then she took him home to India for all kinds of family events. They’ve not been apart very much the entire time. So far there’s yet to be official confirmation but this seems like it’s locked. It’s happening.
So. You know what I say:
Fast flames flame out fast.™ Fast flames aren’t meant to last.™
Does it apply in this case or nah?
Also…I got an email last night from Arya about this couple’s portmanteau which actually never occurred to me: Priyanka + Nick = Prick? Is this a thing? Is that what people are calling them? I am NOT doing this. Let’s try for some alternatives:
Wait. There’s an extra “H” in there by habit. But, come on, JOPRA(H) is better than Prick, non?
PS. Will Prince Harry and Royal Meghan be at the wedding?
