Taylor Swift Gives Free Tickets to Police and Firefighters After Officer's Death. Taylor Swift had some very special guests at a recent concert in Massachusetts this week, and no, they aren't celebrities, but they are celebrated. E! News has learned that the pop star provided a significant number of tickets to law enforcement to her Thursday show, which took place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, almost two weeks after a Weymouth police officer, Sgt. Michael Chesna, was killed in the line of duty. The Patriot Ledger reported that that Swift provided hundreds of tickets to the town of Weymouth. "There were enough to send every police officer, firefighter and extended family to the concert, and then some," Mayor Robert Hedlund told the newspaper. "The gesture was absolutely generous, significant and appreciated." Swift, whose shows are often attended by her celebrity friends -- some of whom have also appeared with her onstage, began her Reputation world tour in May in Arizona. She performed another show at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Friday and will perform another on Saturday before heading to Toronto next week. Swift's tour is set to and in November in Tokyo.

Halsey hosted Playboy's Midsummer Night's Dream party Saturday night in Vegas ... and she did not disappoint. The bash went down at the Marquee Nightclub inside the Cosmopolitan on the Strip. She was joined by bunnies ... not sure if they're real Playboy bunnies or faux, but it truly doesn't matter. The event used to be held at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. ... this one's a spin-off. The suggested attire for the evening ... lingerie and sleepwear, of course. Hef may be gone, but Halsey is making damn sure ... his memory will live on. (TMZ)

Bruno Mars was just as shocked as everyone by the news Cardi B was backing out of touring with him to take care of her baby ... and now his opening act for his impending tour is totally up in the air. Sources connected to Bruno's tour -- slated to kick off in Sept. -- tell us he's without an opener and, so far, there has been no replacement made for Cardi. We're told Bruno's people were burning up the phones Friday ... starting conversations with reps from a number of musicians but nothing is close to being locked down. Our sources say Cardi's decision to back out of the tour has created some issues ... dancers were hired, costumes made and stage backdrops built. As we reported ... Cardi backed out of her gig with Bruno because she "underestimated this whole mommy thing." She told fans she needs more time to recover and isn't ready to part with her daughter, Kulture, while she goes on the road. Mars replied with a heartfelt message of support and understanding, adding ... "We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor." (TMZ)

Cardi B Pulls Out of Tour With Bruno Mars: ''I'm Not Ready to Leave My Baby.'' Cardi B will not be touring with Bruno Mars this fall. The rapper went on Instagram to announce she would no longer be joining Mars on the final leg of the 24k Magic tour in Sept. as originally planned. "As of today I've decided I won't be joining Bruno on tour this fall. I thought that after giving birth to my daughter, that six weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically," the artist explained. She continued, "I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing. Not only am I just not ready physically, I'm not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it's not healthy for her to be on the road. " The new mom is upset about leaving the tour, but she hopes her fans "understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what's best for myself and my baby!" "Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding," the star finished. Her announcement comes after her husband, Offset, was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia for allegedly possessing a firearm and for possession of one ounce or less of marijuana. The couple welcomed their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, on July 11 and in the weeks following, the Bronx native has gushed about her baby girl. And while the artist couldn't be happier being a mom, this isn't the first time she has discussed the realities of motherhood. Recently, the star told her Instagram followers, "It's your girl Cardi B. I wish I could show my face right now, but a bitch looks f--ked up in the game. My hair's f--ked up. My eyes are so dark and puffy. Like, I'm wild pale." Bruno has since responded via his own Instagram, telling Cardi, "Most important thing is for you and your family's health. I know the fans will understand. You are absolutely doing the right thing." He added, "I also know we'll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play 'Bodak Yellow' every night in your honor. Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on the 24k Magic Tour." At this time it is unclear who will be joining the artist on the last leg of the tour when it kicks off on Sept. 7 in Denver, Colorado. (Eonline)
