Ashley’s Morning Scoop 12.18.15

Supermodel Bar Rafaeli’s Isreali home was raided this week and the model and her mother were both arrested for tax evasion. Bar allegedly lied about where she lived and evaded millions of dollars in taxes by saying she lived out of the country. She also received more than $257,000 in free benefits, including cars and luxury apartments that were never reported to the Israeli government. They have since been released from jail, but have been forced to hand over their passports and aren’t allowed to leave the country for the next 180 days without permission.

Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was at a town hall in Iowa and was asked a rather unusual question; “If you could choose, would you rather be the president or Beyoncé?” She delivered a pretty classic response “I’d rather be president because I can’t sing,” Clinton replied. “Nobody would pay to see me sing or dance. Even when I was a way lot younger, that just wasn’t in the cards for me.” She concluded by saying, “I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.”

Barbara Walter’s 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015 aired last night and finally, the Most Fascinating Person of the year was revealed and it was….. Kaitlyn Jenner. Barbara said “When Bruce Jenner became Caitlyn Jenner, there was a seismic shift in the gender universe.”

Tickets to Adele’s North American tour went on sale yesterday at 10am and were snapped up immediately, but several things about the process, mainly demand, delays and price, left fans frustrated. And what do people do when they’re frustrated? Well, they go on twitter and produce snarky tweets like these;

Hello from the ticket line; I’ve clicked refresh a thousand times.

Getting Adele tickets is worse than being in the Hunger Games

Whoever’s sad about not getting #adeletickets, I’m sure she has a song for that feeling.

If I live in a cardboard box for 5 months, I could get my floor seats

To all my people going for those #adeletickets this morning, may the odds be ever in your favor
