SHE has landed the role of the good witch Glinda in the upcoming two-movie adaptation of the hit musical Wicked.
Now Ariana Grande has found her own fairytale palace to rent while she’s working on a film in the UK – an eight-figure mega-mansion.
Insiders say the Thank U, Next singer lives in a lavish north London mansion close to chic Hampstead Heath, trendy Highgate and affluent Belsize Park, meaning Liam Gallagher and Ricky Gervais live among her neighbors.
Her American husband Dalton Gomez is expected to spend a lot of time with her.
A source said, “Ariana rents a stunning house in one of the most popular areas of the capital.
“But anyone who thinks they can catch a glimpse of her has no chance, as the place she found looks like a fortress.
“The house has a private area and is out of reach of other people, so she will be able to completely turn off after filming.
“Dalton is a real estate expert in the US, so it’s no wonder she found such a coveted location.
“She’s a multi-millionaire, so living in luxury won’t hurt her bank balance even though she has to rent it for hundreds of thousands of pounds.
“The house has a spacious kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and all bedrooms are furnished with high quality furniture.
“In addition to the large reception halls, there is a huge cinema, and in private gardens there is a lot of space for entertainment.
“The house did not spare money. It really looks like a palace.”
Ariana arrived in the UK earlier this year for rehearsals, beating Mamma Mia! actress Amanda Seyfried for a movie role.
In 2013, the singer said that the role of Glinda on Broadway would be her dream.
She began work on the films in June alongside Briton Cynthia Erivo, who plays Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West.
Ariana said she was holding back from working on new music until she had completed filming, which she explained was a whirlwind.
She added, “I know the material like the back of my hand, but I still have so much to learn.”
Ariana said she gave the role “every part of me, every minute, every part of my heart, my time, everything I could give”.
Like her friend Taylor Swift, who lives near Ariana’s new apartment, the singer has managed to keep a low profile while working on films due out in 2024 and 2025.
If my house was as good as Ariana’s new gaff, I would never leave it either.
Gaga L.A. hope
LADY Gaga wrapped up her sold-out Chromatica Ball World Tour this weekend and I can tell fans won’t have to wait long to see her on stage again.
The Bad Romance singer is in talks to return to Las Vegas for a second residency following the success of her latest concerts in Nevada.
A source said, “For a long time, Gaga wasn’t sure if she would ever perform again due to health issues.
“But Chromatica helped her recover.
“With Britney Spears on indefinite hiatus and Katy Perry’s residency ending next month, Vegas has a big pop-shaped hole to fill.
“Gaga is once again one of the biggest stars on the planet, so it makes sense.”
While she hasn’t signed on yet, talks are said to be at an advanced stage with potential shows starting late next year.
In Gaga’s debut residency, Enigma + Jazz & Piano, she took over the Park Theater from late 2018 to May of this year.
The series of 52 shows grossed a staggering £70 million at the box office.
Gaga was forced to cut short her final date on her Chromatica Ball tour in Miami, Florida after lightning repeatedly struck outside the stadium where she performed on Saturday.
She’ll hope for another fortune the next time she takes the stage.
Sam in Festive No1 entry
EUROVISION hero Sam Ryder is looking to deny Ladbaby a fifth consecutive Christmas #1 with his own holiday release.
LadBaby, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, has been releasing their new sausage-based tracks for four years now, but I can report that Sam is working on an original holiday belt that will be released ahead of December 25th.
A source said: “Sam is determined to make sure he’s not just a flash in the pan.
“This year has truly been his creation, and what better way to celebrate 2022 than by releasing a Christmas song.”
YouTuber LadBaby topped the charts for the first time with his charity project We Built This City in 2018.
Last year, he even teamed up with Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John in the movie Sausage Rolls for Everyone.
Sam has yet to achieve such impressive chart success.
His Eurovision runner-up Space Man reached number 2, although the follow-up album Somebody struggled to break into the top 40.
As I first said this summer, his latest release is floor filler with David Guetta and Sigala called Living Without You.
Time to dig up those bells, Sam.
harry wilde night
HARRY Styles beamed as he shared the red carpet with his director girlfriend Olivia Wilde at the New York premiere of Don’t Worry Darling.
The couple did not pose next to each other during the promotion of their film, but chatted.
Away from the cinema, Harry’s The Way It Was spent a record 14 weeks at number one in the US.
Not bad for a guy who had a break at school age from The X Factor.
Adam “crossed the line”
MOST guys would consider their lucky stars if Victoria’s Secret hottie Behati Prinsloo was their wife.
But her husband, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, is accused of everything but that.
The couple became the subject of a TikTok discussion after model Sumner Straw claimed she was having an affair with him. In the video, which has been viewed more than 15 million times in 24 hours, she shared messages she claimed were sent by a musician she claims she has been dating for a year.
She blamed Adam for texting her a few months after their breakup that he wanted to name his third child, whom he is expecting with Behati, Sumner.
Last night, Adam said, “I was foolish to talk to anyone other than my wife in any sort of flirtatious manner.
“I didn’t have an affair. However, I have crossed the line.
“My wife and my family are all I care about.”
kim undressing lucky
Kim Kardashian has been on the hunt in these tiger print trousers and boots, and it turns out she’s already latched on to something very special.
The reality TV star was spotted in New York yesterday with the handle of her furry bag dangling, making it look like she has a ponytail, just as it was revealed she bought supermodel Cindy Crawford’s former home.
She has spent an estimated £61 million on a luxurious oceanfront estate in Malibu, California, 14 miles from her ex-husband Kanye West’s new home.
This means they will be close enough that they won’t have to row to where their four children are.
Kim will be back on the field starting tomorrow when the second episode of The Kardashians hits Disney+.
The proceeds from this should help cover the monstrous sum she’s just shelled out.
