J. Lo Gives Big for Hurricane Relief + Jon Snow & Ygritte Are Engaged: Pop Bits
Celebs are chipping in to help victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, plus a beloved TV couple will get married for real, in today’s Pop Bits:
It’s been a week since Hurricane Maria ravaged the island of Puerto Rico, leaving millions of people without food, clean water or electricity. Pitbull has given over his private jet to bring cancer patients to the mainland U.S. for treatment. Jennifer Lopez has announced a $1 million donation to recovery efforts.

Game of Thrones fans swooned over Jon Snow and Ygritte’s passionate affair and were crushed when *spoiler alert* Ygritte was killed. But rejoice! For their love has burst through the land of television and into the real world. (Sorry, there will be no “You know nothing, Jon Snow” joke here.)
The reviews are coming in for the upcoming must-get gadget of the season, the SNES Classic Edition, which comes on the heels of last year’s runaway smash (that was almost impossible to actually acquire), the NES Classic edition. One reviewer’s summary concludes: “Some of the best games of all time graced the SNES, and a lot of them are here, in a neat and tidy package.” Looks like Nintendo‘s got another hit on its hands.
We could quibble with not putting “Former” or “Long-Ago” before “Action Star Steven Seagal,” but regardless, the goateed star of Hard to Kill and Under Siege isn’t happy with those players who’ve taken a knee during the National Anthem to protest racism and police brutality. He also doesn’t quite seem to understand what a “hostage” is, as you can see:
