Crap on Celebrities
#CrapOnCelebrities: Chris Brown wants to tour with Rihanna and Beyonce, a weird guy showed up at William Shatner’s house, Kevin Hart will host a new TV show, and MORE!
Country singer DARYLE SINGLETARY passed away unexpectedly at his home in Tennessee early yesterday morning. He was 46. He leaves behind a wife and four children. An official cause of death has not been announced, although some sources are saying it was a blood clot. Daryle was on the country charts in the ’90s with hits like “I Let Her Lie”, “Amen Kind of Love” . . . and “Too Much Fun”. Although his career tapered off a bit in recent years, he still recorded music and kept touring. He released a duets album with Rhonda Vincent last summer called “American Grandstand“. His last show was Saturday in Louisiana, and the club posted a video that night of him performing Johnny Paycheck’s “Old Violin”. Charlie Daniels Tweeted, quote, “Rest in peace Buddy, you sang country like country should be sung.” And Tanya Tucker Tweeted, “Daryle Singletary was one of my very favorite country singers. I just saw him and hugged his neck at Mel Tillis’ memorial. I’m so thankful for that.”
The L.A. County District Attorney’s office is officially reviewing a potential sex abuse case against Steven Seagal, according to reports I have read. The Beverly Hills Police Department presented the case to prosecutors on January 31st but no further information is available. The LAPD previously stated it was investigating Seagal in an assault case that dates back to 2005. Several women have come forward with allegations against him.
A weird guy showed up at WILLIAM SHATNER’s house and tried to get a peek inside by climbing a tree in his yard. When a neighbor asked the guy what he was doing, he said, “I work with children”then he started singing and ran away. He was spotted there a few weeks ago. Cops are still looking for him. Surveillance cameras at JOE JONAS’ house in the San Fernando Valley got footage of a prowler last Thursday night. The guy was messing with the cameras when he set off a burglar alarm and took off. Thanks to the alarm, nothing was stolen or damaged. And police showed up at CHER’s place in Malibu after the PANIC alarm went off. FIVE deputies responded to the alarm, but it turned out someone set it off by accident.
Miley Cyrus has an obsessed fan who traveled cross-country — without invitation — to see her in person, and left some bizarre Facebook posts that forced cops to take him into custody. The guy is from the Milwaukee area, and a couple of weeks ago he wrote several posts referencing taking a trip to see Miley. He claims he knows her address, how best to enter her home and says they’ll “finally get together.” There’s also a creepy thank you to Miley for “getting rid of Liam” … and some rambling commentary about a “horrific act” he’s going to pull off that will be on the news. The posts caught the attention of a concerned citizen, who alerted Milwaukee police. According to law enforcement sources … Milwaukee PD contacted LAPD and the L.A. Sheriff’s Department to give them a heads up, and good thing they did. The guy actually did make his way to Los Angeles — cops located him on Monday, interviewed him and took him in for psychological evaluation. They can hold him for up to 72 hours.
CHRIS BROWN wants to do a world tour with RIHANNA, BEYONCÉ, and BRUNO MARS. He Tweeted, quote, “Just thinking . . . a CRAZY world tour would [be] Beyoncé, Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Chris Brown . . . and if y’all decide to do it without me . . . give me 10%.” People mocked Chris on social media for putting himself in the company of those other three . . . but even though he IS a jackass, to say the least . . . he easily belongs there career-wise. He’s had 87 songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 . . . the seventh-most all-time. By comparison, Rihanna has had 59, Beyoncé has had 58, and Bruno has had 22.
If it wasn’t already clear to you that there will never be a “Sex and the City 3”, then it should be now. KIM CATTRALL seriously unloaded on SARAH JESSICA PARKER on Instagram. It all started when Kim got blamed for being the one keeping the movie from being made. Then Kim’s brother was found dead, and Sarah tried to reach out to her. On Saturday, Kim posted a message telling Sarah, quote, “I don’t need your love and support.” But the caption was even worse. She said, quote, “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.” She also posted the link to a “New York Post” article that claims Sarah formed kind of a “Mean Girls” clique with the other girls on the set, and left Kim out.
Speaking of people not getting along…D’ARCY WRETZKY says she got an offer to re-join SMASHING PUMPKINS, but it was rescinded. But the band says she’s the one holding out. She has been vocal saying she really wants to be a part of the reunion. She says it isn’t happening and is blaming the band. She says she got an offer but the offer was pulled from the table. The band says they have been reaching out asking her to be a part of rehearsals and pretty much everything involved in a band reunion and she hasn’t do a thing. They claim they wanted just a face to face meeting to talk and she cant even do that. We will hear on Thursday as the website count down is scheduled to end then. Si I am assuming that’s when the bass player will be announced along with a tour and a record maybe?
If you can get RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS tickets for $41 each, you jump on that deal. Just make sure you check and re-check the spelling. A British guy named Duncan Robb found tickets for a show in Ireland at that price, so he bought a pair as a Christmas gift for his girlfriend. The concert was this past Sunday. But right before they left, they realized that Duncan had made a mistake. They didn’t have tickets for the actual Chili Peppers . . . they had tickets for the RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS, the self-proclaimed“most famous BAGPIPE band on the planet.” Oh, and they call their style BAGROCK. The best part of the story is that they WENT TO THE SHOW ANYWAY. He was man enough to Tweet about his mistake . . . but so far he hasn’t given us a review of the show.
Estimates for “Black Panther’s” opening weekend, this weekend, keep getting higher. Right now they are thinking $165 million over the four-day President’s Day weekend. That would be the biggest February opening ever. “Deadpool” has the current record, with $152.2 million over President’s Day weekend in 2016. It would also be one of the biggest openings ever for a superhero movie. The current leaders are:
1. “The Avengers”, $207.4 million.
2. “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, $191.3 million.
3. “Captain America: Civil War”, $179.1 million.
4. “Iron Man 3”, $174.1 million.
5. “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, $166 million.
6. “The Dark Knight Rises”, $160.9 million.
YouTube announced that it has suspended all ads from celebrity vlogger Logan Paul’s channel. Remember Paul shared a video on New Year’s Eve of a dead body in a Japanese forest where people routinely go to commit suicide. “This is not a decision we made lightly,” YouTube said in a statement. “However, we believe he has exhibited a pattern of behavior in his videos that makes his channel not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.” It’s believed that Logan rakes in $1 million per month on his YouTube ads. The company previously pulled Paul’s multimillion-subscriber channels from Google Preferred, which aggregates the video-sharing platform’s top content for brand advertisers.
Logan came out and apologized so guys I am going to own up to it and apologize too. Last week, I reported that the SPICE GIRLS were planning a reunion tour . . . with VICTORIA BECKHAM . . . that would kick off late this summer. They were supposed to hit up the U.K., the U.S., and possibly more. But over the weekend, Victoria insisted that’s NOT happening. She said “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour.” She admitted that the girls did recently reunite to discuss future plans. She said, quote, “We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.” She didn’t really elaborate.
New Girl co-star Hannah Simone has been named for the title role in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot The Greatest American Hero. It is being reconceived as an Indian-American woman. Simone will play Meera, a 30-year-old woman who loves tequila and karaoke and has spent her life searching and failing to find meaning, much to the chagrin of her traditional Indian-American family. Then she is entrusted with a super suit to protect the planet. Meera may have finally found purpose, but the world has never been in more unreliable hands. She has spent the past seven seasons playing Zooey Deschanel’s best friend, Cece, on Fox’s New Girl, which will return for its seventh and final season in April.
KEVIN HART is merging 2 of the 3 things he obviously loves comedy and sports for a new show. Although booze being number 3 may be in there too somehow. It’s called “Cold as Balls”. Kevin and his guest hosts, one of which is Terry Crews will talk with different sports personalities in each episode . . . while they’re sitting in ICE BATHS. Kevin compares it to James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ skits. There will be 12 episodes . . . and the guests include Blake Griffin, , Gabby Douglas, Lindsey Vonn, Hope Solo, Candace Parker, and Desean Jackson. The episodes will be 10 minutes long, and they’ll be on Kevin’s digital platform Laugh Out Loud.
JIM PARSONS from “The Big Bang Theory” will play a DRAG QUEEN in a movie called “The Legend of Georgia McBride”. It’s about an Elvis impersonator named Casey, who works at a dive bar in Florida. He’s broke and has a baby on the way . . . and when the bar owner brings in a drag show to replace his act, he has to become a drag queen himself to keep his job. Parsons will play Miss Tracy Mills, a veteran drag queen who coaches Casey on how to be a female impersonator.
Celebrities like expensive things. And hey, they can afford them, right? But there just seems to be something morally wrong with buying a sofa that costs more than what most of us paid for our HOMES. “Architectural Digest” recently visited JENNIFER ANISTON’s house, and one of the pictures shows a Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa. Only about 150 of these were made in 1947, so they’re pretty rare. There’s no word how much Jennifer paid for hers, but two of them were sold at auction in 2016. One went for $358,000, and the other sold for $754,000. For a FRICKIN’ COUCH. ELLEN and KANYE WEST apparently have them too.
There’s a HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS musical in the works called “Heart of Rock and Roll”. It’s not actually about the band . . . it’s just a story based on their songs, including “Stuck with You”, “Hip to Be Square”, “If This is It”, and of course “The Power of Love”. There’s no word when it might premiere.
What do you think the guys in SLIPKNOT do to get pumped for a concert? Burn down orphanages? Slaughter livestock? Rob little old ladies of their bingo money? Nope. They crank up the LIGHT ROCK!!! SHAWN CRAHAN says, quote, “We listen to Journey before we play. And you can ask the hardest metalhead what they listen to, and they’ll tell you the Beatles, Journey, Michael Bolton, whatever.” I don’t doubt him, either. It’s kind of a “calm before the storm” thing. It’s reminiscent of MICK FOLEY, one of the most hardcore wrestlers of all time. Mick used to listen to the TORI AMOS song “Winter” . . . possibly one of the most beautiful, peaceful pop songs every written. . . before going out to tear up his body rolling around in barbed wire, thumbtacks, and even FIRE.
