Queens of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme stopped by the mall on Christmas Eve. Shopping for a secret Santa? No. looking for his ex wife’s boyfriend to throw hands? Yes.  Gunner Foxx, the boyfriend of  ex-wife, Brody Dalle, was shopping at a Thousand Oaks, California mall when, allegedly, Homme approached him,  called him a few choice words, threatened to kill him, and then attempted to throw him from the mall’s second-floor balcony. Foxx called cops but claims Homme dashed before they arrived. Foxx says Josh broke into the home he shares with Brody Dalle and Homme’s children and also slashed his tires. Foxx has been granted a temporary restraining order keeping Homme at least 50 yards away from him and his daughters.

For a guy who constantly says his name in his songs you’d think everyone knew who Jason Derulo (LINK) is. Not these 2 unlucky fellows. Cops came to the Aria hotel in Vegas early Tuesday morning. Derulo and one of the men were passing each other on an escalator when the guy says  “Hey, Usher! F*** you, bitch!!!” Derulo got upset and punched him right in the face,which knocked him to the floor. Then Jason allegedly also slapped the second guy moments later, and security had to step in. The video shows Jason had security with him but rushed the dude himself.  At the time, the 2 victims did not want to press charges, but there’s always the possibility of a lawsuit. Either way, they have up to one year to change their minds and move forward with charges. Jason did get a trespassing notice from ARIA, and was removed from the property. The dudes were bleeding but no medical services were needed.

Remember when the kid Spencer Elden from the Nirvana Nevermind album in 2019 was saying how cool it was to be the kid on the cover? Remember when he all the sudden sued everyone involved and called the image child porn?  A federal judge in California dismissed the lawsuit. . But the case isn’t necessarily over, because Spencer can re-file an amended lawsuit . . . and he plans to do it. What happened was that the defendants filed a motion to dismiss the case, and Elden had until December 30th to respond.  He didn’t, so it was dropped.  But now he has until the 13th of this month to re-file. (Spencer sued pretty much everyone he possibly could, including the surviving members of Nirvana, the estate of KURT COBAIN, his widow COURTNEY LOVE, and the band’s producer, art director, and record label. He claims his likeness was exploited because he was too young to consent to its use.  He also calls the image child pornography, since it depicts him naked when he was a baby – LINK) 

There’s a store called J.B. Hart Music in Grand Junction, Colorado.  And a young man named Fallon used to come in all the time and ask to play the signature DIMEBAG DARRELL guitar. Fallon has intellectual and developmental disabilities due to a condition called Williams Syndrome, but he’s way into music, and he’d always wanted his own guitar. One day last year, someone came into the store and saw Fallon playing that guitar.  After Fallon left, the anonymous customer BOUGHT the guitar, and asked the staff to give it to him next time he came in. Well, the staff didn’t know it, but Fallon moved from Colorado to Texas, so they didn’t see him for EIGHT MONTHS.  But he came back to visit family, and on New Year’s Eve he went to the shop and FINALLY got his gift. 

KISS finished the U.S. leg of their End of the Road tour. A KISS Las Vegas residency has been put on hold. Recently  Gene Simmons (LINK) was asked if he had any New Year’s resolutions. He said he had room grow as a person which includes amassing more wealth, “I’d like to be a kinder, better-looking and richer guy.”  

The website Celebrity Net Worth claims (LINK) Betty was worth $75 MILLION when she died last week. I don’t know what she made while she was making “The Golden Girls” . . . but between when the show ended in 1992 and her death last week, she reportedly pocketed $87 million in reruns alone. She made another $9.6 million doing six seasons of “Hot in Cleveland”. She loved animals…both petting and eating. She loved hot dogs in particular.  And one of her favorite restaurants was Pink’s Hot Dogs in L.A. Betty ate her dogs plain, no toppings.  Just meat and a bun.  She even once told the owner, quote, “You can tell everybody that Betty White gets naked at Pink’s.”  So from now on, Pink’s will sell the Betty White Naked Hot Dog. And for the next week, proceeds from sales of it will go to the Los Angeles Zoo. Also, Betty’s hometown of Oak Park, Illinois will celebrate Betty White Day on January 17th, which would have been her 100th birthday. 

STEPHANIE MATTO, the woman from “90 Day Fiancé” made some cash farting into jars and selling them. The industry is looking for it’s next big star. She has been forced into retirement due to excessive gas. “I remember within one day I had about three protein shakes and a huge bowl of black-bean soup. “I could tell that something was not right that evening when I was lying in bed and I could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward.  It was quite hard to breathe, and every time I tried to breathe in, I’d feel a pinching sensation around my heart.” She rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed with intense gas pains. Quote, “I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business.” She ended up making $200,000 and is donating some to charities that help with gastric issues (LINK)

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield won’t play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, so that he can move forward with surgery to repair the torn labrum in his non-throwing left shoulder. Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Mayfield’s surgery could happen as soon as this week. A league source told ESPN that Mayfield could be back in time to participate in OTAs, which typically take place in May or June around the league.

Fresh off winning his first Big Ten title, finally knocking off Ohio State and reaching the College Football Playoff, could Michigan Wolverines Jim Harbaugh be heading back to the NFL? Apparently – maybe.  One reporter said he is hearing rumblings, both from the NFL side and at Michigan, that Harbaugh might be tempted to leave the Wolverines to return to the NFL.“ Where would he go?  The reporter listed the Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears as potential matches.

Who could replace Antonio Brown in Tampa?  They are already short handed on WR.  So – who could step in?  One former WR says it’s him.  On Tuesday’s episode of his Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. and Hatch podcast Terrell Owens himself said he “absolutely” believes he can be an adequate replacement for Tampa Bay’s playoff run. He said: “If you think about where they are in the season, they don’t need me for a 16-game season. Three to four games at the max. So, yes, I feel like I can go in, I can contribute at a high level and can be productive.” Owens, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, said he’s been staying in shape, and he revealed that he’s been contacted by an owner who told him to stay ready.

Novak Djokovic needs to prove that he has a genuine medical exemption from COVID-19 vaccination when he lands in Australia or he will be “on the next plane home.”  And that’s according to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. The world No. 1 announced on Tuesday he received an exemption to play in the Grand Slam tournament in Melbourne and said he was heading to Australia. Tennis Australia said Djokovic was one of a “handful” of successful applicants among 26 people who sought exemptions from being vaccinated, but had not received any special treatment in the anonymous application process.  The Prime Minister of Australia said: “If that evidence is insufficient, then he won’t be treated any different to anyone else and he’ll be on the next plane home. There should be no special rules for Novak Djokovic at all. None whatsoever.”
