Celeb in 5: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “I have never felt pain like that in my life.” Kim Kardashian on her painful Met Gala corset.

When Kim Kardashian walked the carpet of the Met Gala this year alongside her husband Kanye West, onlookers’ eyes were glued to one thing: her waist.

The public wondered what drastic measures had been taken to make her waist look so small, with some theorising that she had removed ribs to attain the look.

In an interview with WSJ Magazine this week, the Kardashian sister opened up about just how painful the corset was.

"I have never felt pain like that in my life," she recalled.

"I’ll have to show you pictures of the aftermath when I took it off – the indentations on my back and my stomach."

In response to the speculation about rib-removal, Kim responded: "I don't even know if that's possible."

The beauty mogul also shared that the fit of the outfit was so tight, she couldn’t sit and she was required to have breathing lessons from the corset-maker prior to the Met Gala to prevent her from passing out during the party.

Well then. We think we'll pass on this celebrity look...

2. Oh. Lauren Brant has publicly had a go at her partner Barry Hall on Instagram.

Hi-5 star Lauren Brant has publicly called out her husband Barry Hall less than two months after the birth of their second child, Houston Brant Hall.

Posting on Instagram to her nearly 50,000 followers, the mother-of-two recounted a conversation with her husband that caused tension.

"As I left home today for my six-week checkup, Barry said to me, 'Enjoy the time to yourself,'" she began the caption.

"Because now apparently, as a mum of two, 'time to myself' is a situation where I get to drive in the car with one child instead of two (yay for me!)

"And enjoy the quiet drive home in the rain... oh, but with a quick emergency stop to feed a crying baby!"

As I left home today for my 6 week check up, Barry said to me ‘enjoy the time to yourself’ ???? Because now apparently, as a mum of 2 - ‘time to myself’ is a situation where I get to drive in the car with 1 child instead of two (yay for me)! Have a little lie down.....so my birth wounds & lady parts can be poked and prodded (with a surprise Pap smear)???????? Have a nice chat... about how to poo postpartum & massage infected ducts in my breast (but at least it was another grown up human)????????‍♀️ And enjoy the quiet drive home in the rain... oh but with a quick emergency stop to feed a crying baby! Yes, I was very rejuvenated after my ‘time to myself’ - so much so that I managed to have full energy to look after my other sick child stress free, bath the kids, make dinner, clean the house & work through my list of chores that have been sitting on my table for 8 weeks! ????

Brant went on to explain what 'time to herself' actually entailed when you have a two-month-old baby, and suggested her husband's lack of understanding for her situation.

"Yes, I was very rejuvenated after my ‘time to myself’ – so much so that I managed to have full energy to look after my other sick child stress free, bath the kids, make dinner, clean the house and work through my list of chores that have been sitting on my table for eight weeks! I bloody wish!" she continued.

"I'm crashing early, without dinner, pretty broken... but wait, what's that? Oh, Houston is crying again because I have to hold him 24/7!"

"I can't wait until the next time I get 'time to myself!' YAY."

Lauren and Barry are also proud parents to their two-year-old son, Miller, and have been dating since 2016 after meeting on I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2015.

3. "I was so sad, so drunk." What we learned from Ariana Grande's Vogue cover story.

Ariana Grande has been through some serious sh*t.

Since 2017, she has endured the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, an engagement breakdown with Pete Davidson and terrorists targeting her Manchester concert.

In her recent profile in Vogue, the 26-year-old opened up about the conditions that led to her hit single, Thank U, Next.

“My friends know how much solace music brings me, so I think it was an all-around, let’s-get-her-there [to the studio] type situation,” she told Vogue

"If I’m completely honest, I don’t remember those months of my life [after Mac died and her engagement was broken off] because I was (a) so drunk and (b) so sad. I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board. I think that this is the first album and also the first year of my life where I’m realising that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me. I’ve been boo’d up my entire adult life. I’ve always had someone to say goodnight to," she added.

She also opened up about her relationship with Pete, which she entered after she left a relationship with Mac, and moved to LA for the summer with her friends.

"It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him," she told Vogue.

"I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff."

"I haven’t had that many, but there has been a variety pack. I’ve only been with five people in my life, so I’m kind of a prude, honestly, compared to most others in the field," she told Cosmopolitan

She also opened up about her relationship with Tommy Mottola, a Sony executive 20 years her senior who she married in 1993 when she was 23.

“You might want to picture a child bride,” she told the publication.

“There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no ­freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner.”

5. "It's a very big word." The Bachelor contestants don't know what an astrophysicist is.

The Bachelor 2019 hasn't even started yet and we've already been given a pearler of a moment.

In the trailer for the reality TV dating show, it appears a few of the ladies got a bit confused about Bachelor Matt Agnew's job.

Agnew is an astrophysicist, and in the whirlwind of arriving in the limo and walking down the red carpet to a complete stranger, one of his suitors thought he was talking about... star signs.

“I’m a Gemini,” a woman called Abbie replies when told what the Bachelor does. Another said, “It sounds like a fake job”.
