Jimmy Kimmel would have been nicer to Tom Cruise if the Top Gun: Maverick star had shown up to the Oscars. Kimmel’s wife and executive producer, Molly McNearney, told Variety that there were different versions of the Academy Awards monologue. A “good chunk” of Kimmel praising Cruise for saving the movies was cut out. McNearney said, “Jimmy loves Tom. Tom had just been on (Jimmy Kimmel Live) the week before, and they talked about seeing each other, and Jimmy was excited to tell him that we got real Navy pilots to do the flyover at the top of the Oscars. Jimmy was really disappointed he didn’t come.” She continued, “We had about a three-minute chunk of the monologue dedicated to Tom Cruise, honoring him and his role in reviving the movie industry. We were so disappointed when we learned a few days before the Oscars that he wouldn’t be there. Jimmy loves him and really wanted to celebrate him.” Kimmel took a stab at Cruise’s link with Scientology saying a shirtless Cruise in Top Gun Maverick was an “L. Ron hubba-hubba” after the group’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard.
A dude on Twitter learned the hard way that you don’t say bad thigs about The White Stripes’ Meg White. Former political reporter Lachlan Markay gave his thoughts on The White Stripes, tweeting “The tragedy of the White Stripes is how great they would’ve been with a half decent drummer. Yeah, yeah I’ve heard all the ‘but it’s a carefully crafted sound man!’ takes. I’m sorry Meg White was terrible and no band is better for having shi**y percussion.” Fans immediately defended White’s drumming. One Twitter user wrote “Meg White’s drumming is a Rorschach test for how you feel about women musicians. Unless you also hate all punk music, which was also basic on a technical level and that was the point and it slapped.” Another fan spoke about White’s onstage presence, writing “Onstage with the White Stripes, Meg White looked terminally nonchalant and chill while maintaining a steady backbeat and ensuring that the band’s songs never got off track. Calling what she did simple undermines the whole approach of her technique and execution.” Others told Markay to let this decades-long debate over White’s drumming go. The replies to Markay’s got so hot that he ended up changing his Twitter settings so that only followers could see his tweets.

Roger Daltry says there’s no point in releasing a new album from The Who after the commercial disappointment of their 2019 album ‘Who’. He told ‘NME’ “What’s the point of records? We released an album four years ago, and it did nothing. It’s a great album too, but there isn’t the interest out there for new music these days.” Daltry added “People want to hear the old music. I don’t know why, but that’s the fact.”
As one of the best-selling vinyl artists out there today, Metallica is making sure they can keep up with the demands of their fans by buying their own vinyl pressing plant. The band now owns the majority interest in Alexandria, Virginia’s Furnace Record Pressing, which is known for its high-quality records. The plant has already pressed nearly five million pieces of vinyl for Metallica since 2014. Drummer Lars Ulrich said Metallica’s excited for their new partnership, while celebrating Furnace Record Pressing’s “indie spirit and the passion they have for their craft”, adding “culturally we’re kindred souls.”
Avril Lavigne had to deal with a topless protester who rushed the stage while she was introducing a performance at the 2023 Juno Awards on Monday (March 13) in Edmonton, Canada. As Avril was introducing AP Dhillon, a woman joined her on stage and threw off her shirt. Wearing pink pants and a matching bandana, the stage crasher left her chest nearly totally exposed, with only a pair of pasties covering her. After ignoring the woman, Avril turned and told her off. “Get the f-ck off,” she said. “Get the f-ck off, b-tch.” It appears she was protesting a development plan in Ontario. She had phrases such as “Save the Green Belt” written on her. According to Billboard, Avril referenced the viral moment when she returned to the stage to claim the Fan Choice Award. “Now, nobody try anything this time. I’ll f-ck a b-tch up,” she said. Marvel star Simon Liu, who hosted the show, praised Lavigne for “handling that topless lady like a champion.” The Weeknd won five awards and bring his total of Juno Awards to 22, which puts him in second place on the all-time Juno leaderboard.
Netflix’s doc on Pornhub will premiere tomorrow March 15th. ‘Money Shot’ will look at the history of the internet’s most famous adult entertainment platform, its controversies and backlash. Netflix writes “As anti-trafficking organizations seek justice for victims, can the online giant protect those from whom they profit, or is this a new wave of censorship for adult performers making consensual porn?” Director Suzanne Hillinger said “This documentary requires us to grapple with what sexuality and consent means when billion-dollar internet platforms thrive on user-generated content.”
You know the scene in “Back to the Future” when Michael J. Fox plays Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”? Well, Chris Martin from Coldplay told Michael it inspired his guitar playing.
In an interview with “Entertainment Weekly”, Michael said, quote, “What a great compliment that is,” about influencing Chris.
He also said when he filmed the scene, he was finger-syncing to the track because he had previously recorded it . . . and that it wasn’t that hard because he already knew the fundamentals of guitar playing.
Michael has a documentary coming out called “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie”. It hits Apple TV+ on May 12th. (EW)

In the battle between dragons and not-zombies, the Infected have prevailed.
The Last of Us season one finale was seen by 8.2 million night-off viewers across all platforms (HBO or HBO Max), making it the show’s most-watched episode to date even though it aired at the same time as the Academy Awards. The first six episodes of The Last of Us are now averaging 30.4 million viewers, with the premiere nearly at 40 million viewers. Those are even bigger numbers than the spin-off to HBO’s most successful show ever:
The 30.4 million figure, should it hold as more returns come in on the final three episodes, would mean that The Last of Us is bigger than House of the Dragon, which averaged 29 million cross-platform viewers over the course of its run in the late summer and fall of 2022.
The Last of Us is bringing in more eyeballs than House of the Dragon but it has a long way to go to catch up to Game of Thrones.
The “cumulative audience of 30.4 million is the biggest for any HBO series since the final season of Game of Thrones averaged better than 44 million viewers in 2019,”
