The Spill: Friday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. ‘She pretty much told us.’ Katy Perry revealed her pregnancy a month ago and nobody noticed.

Wow. While we’re still reeling from Katy Perry’s music video pregnancy announcement, it turns out she actually hinted at her pregnancy a month ago.

It just completely missed EVERYBODY’S radar.

Speaking to KIIS FM’s Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson last month, Katy was asked if her and her fiance, Orlando Bloom had discussed having children.

“The wedding is coming, she’s doing [American] Idol, what about babies? Have you guys discussed having babies together?” asked Kyle.

Responding, the 35-year-old said: “Yep, I’m going to do everything at once,” hinting she was already pregnant.

Reflecting on their mistake, Jackie said she was ‘kicking herself’.

“I think she kind of did tell us, this is what I’m kicking myself for… we missed it,” she said. “Oh, you idiot, Jackie! You didn’t pick that up.”

“She’s like, ‘Yep, doing everything at once’… meaning, ‘I’m having a baby, I’m getting married, I’m doing Idol.'”

“She pretty much did tell us, and we just didn’t listen,” responded Kyle.

And of course, Katy recently revealed her pregnancy in her music video for ‘Never Worn White’. Singing about her fear of commitment and excitement over her upcoming wedding to Orlando, the last frame of the film clip showed the ‘Roar’ singer cradling her growing baby bump.

She later confirmed the news in an Instagram Live.

"There is a lot that will be happening this summer: we’re giving birth. Literally," she told fans.

"We’re excited. It’s probably the longest secret we’ve had to keep. I wanted to tell you guys in the best way – through a piece of music."

Today on The Spill, hosts Laura Brodnik recap on what Prince Harry and Meghan can we learn from Diana’s post-royal career, Katy Perry's music video pregnancy announcement and share their Weekend Watch. Post continues below.

2. Jackie O’s mum says she’ll never forgive her for sneaky MAFS prank.

Oh no. It looks like Jackie O is in trouble with her mum and this is precisely why you don't prank your parents on radio.

It just isn't polite.

Today the radio host did just this, ringing in her mum for a radio segment called 'Only Lying'. The prank? She said she was considering going on next year's season of Married at First Sight - something that would panic the chill-est of parents. For context, Jackie is believed to currently be single after divorcing her husband Lee Henderson in 2018, with whom she shares an eight-year-old daughter, Catalina 'Kitty' Mae Henderson.

“So I need to tell you something,” began the radio host. “Don’t judge me. Next year I’m going on MAFS.”

Her mum was not impressed. Like really, really, 'I just accidentally drove the car through the garage door' unimpressed.

"Oh no darling, please don't. Don't," she said.

"They reckon they'll match me with someone really good, like they've promised," insisted Jackie.

"I just think you are really lowering yourself so much," her mum responded. "Oh god, Jackie, there’s just nothing positive about this at all.”

"Oh Jackie, you're getting too swept up in it all."

There was a particularly cringey moment where the conversation turned to the mum-of-one's sex life.

“Well, the sex would be good,” she joked.

“God, I’d rather you pay for it somewhere,” replied her mum.

“I’ve looked online before, Mum, they’re very expensive when you pay for it,” she said, leaving her mum stumped.

“I can’t believe you’d even think of that,” she said.

Eventually, Jackie admitted to the lie. "It's a prank call," she said.

“What?” the confused mum replied. “I’m not on-air, am I? I’ll never forgive you for this.”

She finished the segment with a stern demand: "Call me this afternoon... I'll be home at four. You better ring me."

“I will. Don’t be mad,” said Jackie.

“I am mad,” replied her mum.

You could feel the anger through your headphones.

3. “Don’t you know who I am?” MAFS' Michael got kicked out of a bar and he was not impressed.

It has been reported that Married At First Sight's Michael Goonan has been kicked out of Darwin nightclub for behaving badly.

Police were called to Monsoons Restaurant and Party Bar in February, to find that Goonan had made multiple inappropriate advances towards women in the club, and when asked by security to leave, he refused.

One of the women spoke with Yahoo and said, "I had to tell him four or five times to stop touching me and I had to step back and tell him to give me space. He was sh**-faced."

After being pulled out of Monsoons, apparently Goonan tried to assure both police and security that he was not a threat. Especially, because he was a reality TV star.

"He was saying, ‘This is what happens when you piss off someone with 250,000 followers’. He Googled himself again and was flashing the phone in the bouncer’s face, trying to show them he was famous,” the female witness said.

Lastly, another woman who saw the events unfold, confirmed that Goonan did indeed Google himself again once the police arrived.

“He said to them, ‘do you know who I am? I have money, I’m from MAFS’ Then he Googled himself again, and brought two articles up.”

Today, Michael Goonan has near 39,000 followers. Slightly smaller numbers that the ones he suggested... just saying.

4. Singer Grimes has confirmed that Elon Musk is the father of her unborn child.

The 31-year-old Canadian singer Grimes has just shared that Elon Musk is the father of her child.

Although she announced her pregnancy back in early January on Instagram, it was only in her most recent interview with Rolling Stone that she confirmed that detail.

Speaking to the publication about her career, new music and her pregnancy, she got candid about her choice to begin a family.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher explained that, "Even though it’s this great thing for a girl, it’s sacrificing your body and your freedom,"

"It’s a pretty crazy sacrifice and only half of the population has to do it. It was really profound to me when I decided I was going to do it, to actually go through the act of, like, y’know, unprotected sex.

"I’m just like, I have sacrificed my power in this moment. I have, like, capitulated. And I have spent my whole life avoiding that situation. I have never capitulated to anything, so it was just a profound commitment."

She continued to explain her relationship with Musk and their decision to have a baby. She said, "I do actually just really love my boyfriend. So I was like, ‘You know, sure.’"

Grimes started dating the entrepreneur and Tesla founder back in 2018. She explained the past two years of their relationship have been a significant period of growth for them both.

"No one believes me about this, but I just did not understand what I was getting into at all. Not that I’m mad about it. I just didn’t think it would be a thing. The s**t that’s happened with my boyfriend this year has overwritten so much of my life’s work," she ended with.

The pair began dating in May of 2018 but did not go public until the Met Gala that year.

This will be the couple's first child.

5. No, it isn't 2007, but The Pussycat Dolls are in Australia right now. And it's not going well..

No, it is not 2007, but The Pussycat Dolls are in Australia right now and they’re not having the best time.

You see, they just want to get on with things and we keep being… weird.

They’ll never top 2006’s Buttons, but the group has a new song called React to promote. It’s even become a TikTok sensation, whatever that means.

Nicole Scherzinger and friends touched down earlier this week and straight away, the friends got to hang out in a hotel room while Nicole went on The Project.

And let’s just say, when a video of Tommy Little attempting a PCD-inspired dance move is the least awkward part of an interview…

It didn't go very well.

The fun continued on Friday, when The Pussycat Dolls performed on Sunrise.

We recap their quite frankly horrendous trip down-under in our earlier post here.
