JAMIE FOXX and KATIE HOLMES spent Valentine’s Day together . . . playing basketball. Jamie picked her up at her house, and they spent about an hour on the court. So we can talk about this relationship now, right? Not so fast. Before the NBA All-Star Celebrity game on Friday night, Jamie was talking to Michael Smith from “SportsCenter” . . . and Michael tried to go there. Here’s the video.
Speaking of basketball Laura Ingraham from Fox News got into it with LeBron James over the weekend, after LeBron criticized President Trump. Here is Laura telling Lebron to shut up and dribble LeBron came back at here pretty well
ELTON JOHN was playing at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas last Wednesday night, but it was Mardi Gras all up in his face. In the middle of “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting”, someone in the audience threw a string of beads at him, and hit him right in the mouth. In fan videos from the show, you can tell he’s NOT happy about it. He stops singing and playing the piano for a bit, while the rest of the band plays on, and you can even see him mouthing an F-bomb. But he eventually rejoins the song like nothing happened.
Britain’s “Sun” tabloid claims BEYONCÉ is working with ELTON JOHN on music for the upcoming “Lion King” movie. That makes sense, because Beyoncé is in the movie, and Elton is coming back to handle the soundtrack. Elton said, quote, “There will be a [new] end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to Beyoncé’s people and hopefully [we] can cook up something.”
Actress Lara Flynn Boyle (Twin Peaks, The Practice and Men in Black 2 ) is 47 now and as far as I know she hasn’t done much lately. Well accept for sipping whisky from the bottle in the driver’s seat of her car in LA. There are a few pictures I saw this morning of her behind the wheel of her car full on pulling swigs from a Johnny Walker Red bottle.
MARILYN MANSON had an onstage meltdown during a show in Long Island this past Thursday. He was 90 minutes late starting the show, and only ended up getting through five songs before leaving the stage for good. People who were at the show think he was WASTED. He was rambling on about wanting more love from the fans, then he did a weird, improvised spoken-word thing while the band just kept a beat going behind him. One fan Tweeted, quote, “Marilyn Manson ended the show by dropping the mic mid-song, pushing over a speaker, and falling off stage.” After he left, fans started an “[Eff] you Manson” chant.
If you’ve ever wanted to raid Kim Kardashian‘s closet, here’s your chance to do it … without getting arrested for trespassing. A bunch of Kim K’s old wardrobe and accessories are being auctioned off on eBay right now through marketing agency Auction Cause — with more than 200 items up for grabs. Here’s the cool part … a lot of this stuff is “Pre-owned,” meaning they were worn or used by Kim herself at some point. There’s also a handful of new items she owned but never wore — such as bikini bottoms. Nothing used in that department. Sorry, creeps. 10% of the proceeds are going to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
“The Walking Dead” needs something to bring its ratings back up, but I’m not sure this is it: During the second half of Season 8, the show is going to bring us a NAKED ZOMBIE. It’ll be a fully nude zombie. Obviously, just because the zombie will be naked, that doesn’t mean we’ll see it from the FRONT. I have a feeling we’re getting all hyped up for a disappointing pair of rotting butt cheeks. Season 8 returns a week from this Sunday.
Speaking of a ratings grabber…DON JOHNSON has joined the cast of a Fox sitcom called “Daddy Issues”. It’s about a woman whose life is turned upside down when her father starts dating one of her friends.
WILLIAM SHATNER signed a deal to record a country album. He’s been recording albums since the ’60s. Sometimes spoken word or something, “Bohemian Rhapsody“ (AUDIO) and “Iron Man“. His deal is with Heartland Records Nashville, and they say it’s “a very special project.” It’ll be released later this year.
JIMMY PAGE says there’s still a bunch of LED ZEPPELIN stuff from the vaults coming out, but the band is probably done for.
Billy Corgan did his first radio interview about the new Smashing Pumpkins tour, and how it feels to be working on new Pumpkins music again. He says fan reaction is great. BUT he didn’t want to talk about bassist Darcy and all the rumors about why she isn’t involved in the reunion.
Sally Field is trying to set her son Sam up with figure skater Adam Rippon. Sam texted his mom and said he’s crushing on Adam . . . and she replied, quote, “Sam, he’s insanely pretty. Find a way.” Then Sally tagged Adam on the post. As far as we know, Adam has yet to respond . . . although he has his hands full at the moment.
