A landlord in Illinois has been arrested after he tied up two tenants on Sunday, put pillowcases on their heads, drove them at gunpoint to a cemetery, and dumped them in the snow.
He said he did it because he was frustrated that he couldn’t evict anyone because of Covid restrictions. He’s facing kidnapping charges.
Taylor Swift’s new version of Love Story called Love Story (Taylor’s Version) is number 1 on the “Billboard” Hot Country Songs chart. The 2008 version simply called Love Story got to number 1…too. So both versions reached Number One on that chart, which makes her only the second person to accomplish that. Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” did it in 1974, and her re-recording topped it again in 1982. Now, in case you haven’t been following this, we should double back on why Taylor re-did the song. She’s in the process of re-recording a lot of her early albums because she’s mad at a guy named Scooter Braun who bought the rights to them. “Love Story” was on her 2008 album “Fearless”. Her new version of that album is called, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)”, and it’s coming out April 9th.
The back and forth between Soundgarden and Vicky Cornell continues as the band says Vickys numbers for the buyout offer are grossly mischaracterized. And that it will come out in court. Despite Vicky claiming the band was offered $16 million for their catalog, the guys wrote “All offers to buy out our interests have been unsolicited and rejected outright”. They’ve also called Vicky out for taking over the band’s social media, with “For more than a year, SOUNDGARDEN’s social media accounts have been hijacked; misleading and confusing our fans.”

Very excited to say The Network is scheduled to perform on Fallon Friday. They play new wave music while wearing masks. Worst kept secret in the world is its Greenday. Though when asked The Network says.. “We had often been mistaken as the planet’s greatest rock n’ roll band, Green Day,” The Network says. “This earthly comparison is almost as comical as the humans that inhabit this dying planet!” Even the NBC website seems confused, referring to The Network as “rumored to be a secret project of the well-known band Green Day.” The Network released a new album called Money Money 2020 Pt II: We Told Ya So! last December. It’s their first record in 17 years. Green Day, meanwhile, just dropped a new song called “Here Comes the Shock” to follow their 2020 album, Father of All…
MEEK MILL really got dragged for his new song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)” . . . because of the line “If I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe.” Not surprisingly, KOBE BRYANT’s widow VANESSA wasn’t a fan. On Monday, she reached out to Meek on social media and called the track, “extremely insensitive and disrespectful.” She added, quote, “If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.” Yesterday, Meek said he apologized to Vanessa PRIVATELY. And he asked people to move on. Quote, “If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”
PAT SAJAK may have mocked a contestant with a lisp on Monday’s “Wheel of Fortune”. It happened during the introductions. A guy named Chris Brimble was telling Pat what he does for a living, and Pat responded, quote, “I thee” . . . instead of “I see.” If Brimble caught it, he didn’t say anything. And he went on to win more than $12,000. But Twitter is letting Pat have it
CHRISSY TEIGEN begged PRESIDENT BIDEN to follow her on Twitter . . . then realized she’d made a mistake because she didn’t feel she could be herself with him watching. So she asked him to UN-follow her. And when he did, she let loose with a potty-mouthed celebration.

Once you opt in to use the feature, Netflix will download movies and TV shows automatically for you, based on your preferences.

Super hero movie nerds in the room check my accuracy. Zack Snyder left during production of Justice League after his daughter committed suicide. Joss Whedon took over and the movie comes out in 2017 and it flops. So now Snyder is back and reshooting the thing because fans demanded it. Its been about $70 million in reshoots. About three-quarters of the movie was re-shot. Snyder has not seen the Whedon version. A Warner Brothers executive said, “When we got to see what Joss actually did, it was stupefying, The robber on the rooftop—so goofy and awful. The Russian family—so useless and pointless. Everyone knew it. It was so awkward because nobody wanted to admit what a piece of s**t it was.” After fans demanded a #SnyderCut of the movie, Warner Brothers and Snyder made a deal so Zack could do the film he intended. Snyder’s true version will be four hours long. The #SnyderCut of “Justice League” premieres on March 18th on HBO MAX.

TOM HOLLAND auditioned for the part of Finn in the last “Star Wars” trilogy . . . and he BLEW IT, because he couldn’t work alongside the robot BB8. It didn’t help that a woman was doing the “dialogue” for it. Tom says, quote, “I remember doing this scene with this lady, bless her, and she was just a drone. So I was doing all of this, like, ‘We gotta get back to the ship!’ And she was going, ‘Bleep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop.’ “I just couldn’t stop laughing. I found it so funny. And I felt really bad, because she was trying really hard to be a convincing android or drone or whatever they’re called. Yeah, I obviously didn’t get the part. That wasn’t my best moment.” The part went to JOHN BOYEGA

TIGER WOODS was in a serious car accident early yesterday morning in L.A., and authorities say he’s lucky to be alive. Details on the crash and Tiger’s condition are still rolling in, but here’s everything we know now . . .It happened around 7AM and it involved just him. They DON’T suspect Tiger was under the influence of anything, and they didn’t take any blood. Weather was not a factor. It sounds like SPEEDING was a factor though. He reportedly struck the median . . . went across two opposing lanes of traffic . . . and landed “SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET” from the road, hitting a curb and trees as the vehicle “rolled multiple times.” It’s unclear how fast Tiger was driving. The speed limit is 45 miles per hour. One officer said that since it’s downhill, it’s not uncommon for them to see people speeding at up to 80 miles per hour. He suffered “significant” injuries to his right leg, and received emergency surgery from trauma specialists at the UCLA Medical Center that included the insertion of a rod into his lower right leg, and multiple screws and pins in his foot and ankle. There’s talk that he was supposed to be at a golf course at 7:30 A.M for a video shoot., but he was running late. He was staying about an hour away . . . and had left just before 7:00 A.M. But TMZ has surveillance footage of Tiger driving roughly five minutes before the accident, and he didn’t seem to be driving exceptionally fast. In fact, he was in the slow lane behind a minivan.
Ben Roethlisberger’s agent confirmed that the Steelers do want to bring the quarterback back for the upcoming 2021 season, and conversations will happen about contract restructuring. He said they want Ben back and will contact him soon to address his cap situation. The agent then went on to say that a year ago, Ben wasn’t sure if he could throw again, but he battled back to get 12 wins and the 8th division title of his career. They lost steam down the stretch and that doesn’t sit well for him, so the fire burns strong and there is plenty of gas in the tank.

The website is also displaying some logos and names suggested by fans.
Dez Bryant wants to play two more seasons, but it apparently won’t be with the Baltimore Ravens. In a series of tweets Tuesday night, the wide receiver explained why he never broke out of a limited role with the Ravens last season. “I realized quick Baltimore wasn’t the place for me,” Bryant wrote. “No bad blood. That’s their way of doing things so you gotta respect it.” Bryant, 32, returned after sitting out two seasons and totaled six catches for 47 yards and two touchdowns in six games with Baltimore.
The NBA announced the reserve selections for next month’s All-Star Game in Atlanta on Tuesday night, a list headlined by James Harden as well as center Rudy Gobert and guard Donovan Mitchell from the league-leading Jazz. Harden, the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2018, is representing Brooklyn for the first time in what will be his ninth consecutive All-Star appearance. He will join teammates Kevin Durant — one of two captains, alongside Lakers star LeBron James — and Kyrie Irving, both of whom were voted in as starters last week. In addition to Harden, the six other selections from the Eastern Conference were: guard Jaylen Brown and forward Jayson Tatum from the Celtics; Knicks forward Julius Randle; Bulls guard Zach LaVine; and 76ers guard Ben Simmons. In the West, it was Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard; Clippers forward Paul George; Lakers forward Anthony Davis; Suns guard Chris Paul and Pelicans forward Zion Williamson.
Taijuan Walker is taking a back seat on his new team — to Mr. Met. A day after the Mets finalized his $23 million, three-year contract, Walker said he was aced out of his preferred jersey number by the rotund mascot with the baseball-shaped head. Walker said….”I was 44 growing up, and I finally got it with the Mariners in 2016. And then I ended up getting traded at the end of the year, and when I got traded to the Diamondbacks, Paul Goldschmidt was No. 44. So I was, OK, I’m never going to get that again.” So Walker thought: “What number can I wear that not a lot of people in the league have it?” He chose 99. He went on to say…” I think the only way I don’t wear 99 is if I get traded to the Yankees. So I was, OK, 99 is a safe bet and live with that. And then, of course, last year I got traded to Toronto and Ryu wears 99. So, I was like, OK, well, that didn’t work out. So I’m wearing 00. Something different, again.” He then signed with the Mets…and Mr Met wears #00. So…he’s back to 99.

And, in the most shocking game of the night, 5th ranked Illinois lost to unranked Michigan State last night. They will look to rebound against Nebraska tomorrow night.
