She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her acclaimed performance as Anita in Steven Spielberg's new adaptation of West Side Story.And breakout star Ariana DeBose used her newfound clout to convince singer–songwriter Jack Antonoff to change the name of his band Bleachers ahead of her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live.In a promo for her episode that was released Thursday, the 30-year-old dancer-turned-actress managed to gross the out the 37-year-old producer by informing him that people sometimes get intimate 'under the bleachers.' Just teasing!

Ariana DeBose, 30, poked fun at Bleachers leader Jack Antonoff enough to make him want to change the band's name in a Saturday Night Live promo featuring Bowen Yang that was released ThursdayIn the clip, Ariana put on a busty display in an off-the-shoulder dress decorated with colorful pastel stripes, while Jack affected a nerdy–cool look with a black leather jacket and thick black glasses.After she introduced herself and Jack's band Bleachers, cast member Bowen Yang — who sported newly dyed-blond hair — added, 'Such a fun name, Bleachers, like, "Hey, let's go make out under the bleachers."' But the musician seemed offended at the idea.'Nobody does that!' he interjected, while Ariana shot back, 'Yes, they do.'The thought of kissing under the bleachers seemed to have turned the musician off of his own band name.

Rihanna's foundation donates $15 million to climate justice
Rihanna is backing her belief that climate change is a social justice issue by pledging $15 million to the movement through her Clara Lionel Foundation.The “We Found Love” singer Tuesday announced the donation to 18 climate justice organizations doing work in seven Caribbean nations and the United States, including the Climate Justice Alliance, the Indigenous Environmental Network, and the Movement for Black Lives.“Climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, with communities of color and island nations facing the brunt of climate change,” Rihanna said in a statement, adding that is the reason her foundation prioritizes both climate resilience and climate justice work.The grants, made in partnership with Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey's #StartSmall philanthropic initiative, are focused on groups with female, LGBT, and Black and Indigenous leaders because their communities are at the greatest risk.“Funders must build partnerships with grassroots organizations, acknowledging their deep understanding of what is necessary to achieve climate justice in their own communities.” Justine Lucas, Clara Lionel Foundation's executive director, said in a statement.————The Associated Press receives support from the Lilly Endowment for coverage of philanthropy and nonprofits.
