‘The Sun’ recently speculated that Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron would join Foo Fighters for their 2023 shows. Cameron has cleared the air, though, posting on the one-year anniversary of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins death on Saturday, “FYI the internet rumors aren’t true. I’m not joining the Foos.” Let the speculation about other drummers continue, as Foo Fighters have been quiet about who will sit behind the kit for them this summer.
Jonathan Majors is in theaters right now as the villain in “Creed 3” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”. And now, he’s the villain IN REAL LIFE. Allegedly. Majors was arrested by the NYPD Saturday after being accused of assaulting a woman during a domestic dispute. Majors’ attorney says he’s not only innocent, but he’s, quote, “provably the VICTIM of an altercation with a woman he knows.” She claims they have video footage to prove it, along with testimony from the woman RECANTING her allegations . . . and she’s confident that the charges will be dropped. In the meantime, the Army has paused a “Be All You Can Be” ad campaign featuring Majors. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Marvel, since his character, Kang the Conqueror, is set to be the bad guy in the next two “Avengers” movies.
Gwyneth Paltrow testified Friday in the civil trial against the guy she collided with on a ski slope in 2016. And she said HE ran into HER. Not only that, but when he first hit her, she thought she was being sexually assaulted. (???) She said, quote, “I was skiing and two skis came between my skis, forcing my legs apart, and then there was a body pressing against me and there was a very strange grunting noise. “So my brain was trying to make sense of what was happening. I thought, ‘Is this a practical joke? Is someone doing something perverted? This is really, really strange’ . . . he was groaning and grunting in a very disturbing way.” The plaintiff, a 76-year-old optometrist named Terry Sanderson, initially sued Gwyneth for $3.1 million, but the judge capped his potential reward at $300,000. Gwyneth countersued for a symbolic $1, plus legal fees. (Hollywood Reporter)
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth are breaking up. The Oscar-winning actress just turned 47 last Wednesday and shared the news that she and her talent agent husband are ending their marriage. They made the announcement in a joint statement on Friday, days before their 12-year wedding anniversary on Sunday. “We have some personal news to share… It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said. “We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for everything we have created together.” “Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter,” they added. “These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.” A source tells PEOPLE, “They really are the best of friends, and this is such an amicable decision. They are so committed to co-parenting together. They are invested in their whole family and making this as smooth as possible for everyone.” They share a son, Tennessee, and Reese also has two other children, Ava and Deacon, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
A horse died of cardiac arrest last week on the set of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” Season 2. The horse was exercised by its trainer before rehearsals and hadn’t shown any prior health problems. It was one of about 30 horses on set. The company who provides the horses said it’s their first on-set animal death. PETA is now calling on the show to stop exploiting horses, and use CGI ones instead. An executive said, quote, “It seems that living underground with the orcs is par for the course for the producers . . . “They have the option to use humane methods that wouldn’t run vulnerable horses to death on set . . . no one wants to see a spinoff for TV with torment as the theme.” (Hollywood Reporter)

Jason Bonham, drummer and son of another legendary drummer, Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham, may have just discovered some unheard recordings featuring his dad’s band. Bonham told a podcast “I know I found a whole bunch, a box of tapes – reel-to-reels – at home, last time I was there. I need to get the machine up and running and hook it up, which… I’ll save that for YouTube, like, ‘Let’s get this thing up and running. Let’s find out if we’ve got anything that hasn’t even been released yet.'” He added that “none of the” tapes were labelled.
Late actor Ray Liotta’s Facebook was hacked last week and now his team is trying to wrangle back control. Last week, Liotta’s account started posting death hoaxes and fake news about celebs like Ellen DeGeneres and Bruce Willis, confusing and alarming fans of the late ‘Goodfellas’ star. Liotta’s team worked with Facebook and thought they had the issue under control…until the page then promoted a porn scene. The phony posts have since been deleted but some jerk out there is still posting junk under Liotta’s page.

Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine says Metallica “talks about their fans but don’t give them what they’ve been asking for” – and that’s a tour with both bands. Mustaine tries to reason why Metallica won’t tour with Megadeth, telling ‘Guitar World’, “What are they afraid of? I don’t know. It’s not me; it’s them.” He added “Metallica [are] represented by the same agent as Megadeth, and I’ve asked our agent, ‘You’re Metallica’s agent, too; why won’t those guys play with us? What are they afraid of?’ And they’ve confirmed they’re going out with Five Finger Death Punch and the Pantera thing, so it’s clearly about the money.” Mustaine ended with “The world wants to see Megadeth and Metallica play together. And in case anyone is wondering, there’s f***ing money in that. The fans want to see Metallica and Megadeth share the stage.”
Metallica frontman James Hetfield says he and his multi-platinum selling bandmates are “really average” musicians. Speaking to Cigar Aficionado magazine, Hetfield says the band members’ skills on their respective instruments may not be exceptional. But he believes they create something remarkable when they get together. Hetfield says: “I know individually we’re all really average players, but when you put us together something happens. Something really happens….” He adds that he is comfortable playing alongside his bandmates, but jamming with strangers would be a “nightmare”. The interview also sees Hetfield explain how he used to be crippled by stage fright in the band’s early days, and he admits they can’t keep the same pace that they used to.
“Early shows were really difficult— I was so shy,” he says. “I didn’t want to talk. I’d have the other guys in the band introduce the songs. Now I feel so comfortable up there, it’s so weird. “Sitting down one-on-one with someone is a lot more anxiety ridden than standing up in front of 10,000 people, 20,000 people. “As we get older, we would love to continue to play all the places we’ve been before but it’s near impossible to keep up the pace we’ve had, say, in the 90s. We would go out for months at a time.
