Crap on Celebrities
MONDAY'S CRAP ON CELEBRITIES
SCARLETT JOHANSSON beat THE ROCK at the box office this weekend, by a pretty wide margin. "Lucy" did better-than-expected at $44 million, compared to just $29 million for "Hercules". It's even more impressive when you consider the budget for the two movies: "Lucy" cost an estimated $40 million to make, which means it's already made back its entire budget . . . while "Hercules" cost $100 million, so it hasn't even made a third of that yet.
More than a month after Casey’s Kasem’s June 15 death, the family drama over the deceased continues, and the whereabouts of his body remain unknown to his children. Kasem's children are "90 percent" sure Kasem’s body is in a funeral home in Montreal. However, they would "not be surprised" if the body has already been cremated. The children are adamant that their father has no connection to Montreal and to their knowledge, had never been there before. And in another bizarre twist, they think Jean could have a boyfriend who lives in Montreal, and that is the reason he was allegedly taken there.

Last week, ARETHA FRANKLIN hit up a Johnny Rockets in the Niagara Falls area after a gig. And she almost had to throw down with one of the employees. Here's what happened: Aretha ordered a meal TO GO . . . but apparently, she was too hungry to wait, and once she got her food, she sat down at one of the tables inside to eat it. A server told her she wasn't allowed to eat takeout inside. Aretha says the worker was, quote, "very rude, unprofessional and nasty." She stormed out without finishing her meal. The owner of that Johnny Rockets says he's sorry, and called the worker a, quote, "new and very young employee." Apparently, the employee won't be fired, but was REMINDED about the "takeout policies." Aretha is moving on. She says, quote, "Over the years I have always enjoyed a burger and cherry Coke. This experience will not stop my enjoyment of burgers and cherry Cokes, and talking to the classy and friendly people at Johnny Rockets."
Who said this?... "My attitude about marijuana or anything is, 'Don't be stoned if you have to pretend you're not,'… It does remind you of your space in the universe—your place in the universe—and reframe things for you. I think you can have some very profound experiences."….67 year old Susan Sarandon…She also said: , I'm not new to the idea of mushrooms," she confessed. "I don't really like chemical things, really. Timothy Leary was a friend of mine, so that acid was nice and pure, but I'm not really looking for chemicals, and I don't like to feel speedy. I've done mushrooms and things like that. But I like those drugs in the outdoors—I'm not a city-tripper."
