Pete Davidson is a hero to many . . . but maybe this is the part of the movie where we discover he’s actually a VILLAIN? TMZ has pointed out that Pete may have violated the BRO CODE. It seems he was friends with Emily Ratajkowski’s husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, before they got divorced and HE started hooking up with her. They even have a picture of Pete and Sebastian enjoying a Knicks game together in 2020. It’s not clear how close they were, but if Pete hasn’t technically crossed a line, he’s pretty close to it.
Kumail Nanjiani admitted to Jimmy Kimmel that he once went 15 years without visiting the dentist. So when he finally did go in, he needed a lot of work. Apparently, Kumail’s parents didn’t take him to the dentist when he was growing up. Quote, “My mom is a little bit of an anti-dentite . . . I called her to tell her I went to the dentist and he said [stuff’s effed] up in there. “And she was like, ‘Why did you go to the dentist?’ I’m like, ‘That’s not the right response to that.'”
The demand for Taylor Swift tickets during Tuesday’s presale was so massive, and caused so much online chaos, that Ticketmaster has CANCELED today’s public ticket sales. More than TWO MILLION TICKETS were sold on Tuesday, the most ever sold for an artist in a single day . . . and they have, quote, “insufficient remaining ticket inventory” to meet demand. On CNBC yesterday, Live Nation Chairman Greg Maffei said they’re working to fix the problem . . . but he put the blame squarely where it belongs: On TAYLOR. Or at least her popularity. He said, quote, “It’s a function of Taylor Swift. The site was supposed to open up for 1.5 million verified Taylor Swift fans. We had 14 million people hit the site, including bots, which are not supposed to be there.” None of this is making Taylor Swift fans who don’t have tickets happy, though. How are the tickets doing after-market? Fans hoping to score tickets for Taylor’s SoFi Stadium in L.A. show will fork over a minimum of $400, and that’s behind the stage … while the most expensive seat is currently listed at $4,549. You can score some nosebleeds for $765 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, or shell out $11,475 for the floor. However, those prices pale in comparison to the $22,500 you’ll pay to see Taylor from the front row at Gillette Stadium in suburban Boston, and the “cheap” seats are $675. There’s also Soldier Field in Chicago, where you can sit in the nosebleeds for $800 and land a floor seat for around $5,000.
The white two-story house from “The Goonies” hit the market for $1.65 million. That’s the family home that Mikey (Sean Astin) and his brother Brand (Josh Brolin) are trying to save. It’s located in Astoria, Oregon, which is along the coast. At less than 2,000 square feet, it has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and, of course, the attic with a roll-up ladder. The realtor said, quote, “Within 72 hours of listing, the world is showing exactly how much impact this movie has had on hearts and minds over the years. People from many countries and all walks of life are calling to inquire about [it].”

Korn has released a firey hot sauce called Here To Slay, a riff on their 2002 ‘Untouchables’ track, “Here To Stay”. Using produce from California’s Central Valley, Here To Slay has a “charred-sweet flavor of roasted corn and vibrant jalapeño and serrano peppers. Smoky chipotles in adobo and cumin add earthy notes that echo the vistas and canyons outside the city”, according to the band. Collaborating with Heartbeat Hot Sauce, Korn recommends their sauce on tacos, grilled shrimp and burgers. Grab a $12 bottle at Heatonist.com
Paul McCartney, Elton John and Roger Waters are just a few of the stars that are appearing in an upcoming documentary on Abbey Road Studios. Marking the studio’s 90th anniversary, the trailer for ‘If These Walls Could Sing’ opens with Sir Elton, who says “When you enter a place with so much history around it, it’s kind of sacred in a way. People want to come here – they want the sound of Abbey Road.” Playing a piano he used long ago with The Beatles, McCartney says “This was our home; we spent so much time here.” The doc also sees George Lucas capturing the sounds of ‘Star Wars’ at Abbey Road Studio ‘If These Walls Could Sing’ debuts on Disney+ on December 16th.
Fat Joe’s beef with 50 Cent in the 2000s cost him $20 million. In an excerpt from his new memoir, The Book of Jose, Joe said he lost a shoe deal because of the fight with Fiddy. Joe referenced the 2005 MTV VMAs, where he and G-Unit threw public shots at each other. The incident affected Joe’s Jordan deal. He said, “I was supposed to be the first artist ever to collaborate with Jordan Brand. I’ve always rocked the most Jordans, always had the 172 flyest, most exclusive Jordans out of any celeb. No one can compete with my sneaker collection.” Joe continued, “Me and Michael Jordan are actual friends. I met with him six times going over designs for the Fat Joe Jordan. Some of those meetings were literally just me and him, brainstorming, bouncing ideas off each other. But after the VMAs, Mike deaded the deal.” He went on to say, “That was it. I lost about $20 million by not getting that deal. I lost out on other endorsements too. Promoters definitely didn’t book me and 50 Cent on the same shows. Everybody had to keep us separated. But as fate would have it, after the VMAs, we didn’t see each other again in person for almost a decade.”
Cell phones at concerts . . . are they unavoidable? If your favorite band asked you to NOT use yours during one of their shows, would you comply? Or DEFY? The ’90s band Placebo is still out there, doing their thing . . . and they posted a message to their fans asking them NOT to film or take pictures at their shows. They said, quote, “It makes Placebo’s performance so much more difficult. More difficult to connect with you and to communicate effectively the emotions of the songs. “It is also disrespectful to your fellow concertgoers who want to watch the show, not the back of your phone. Please be here and now in the present and enjoy the moment. “Because this exact moment will never ever happen again. Our purpose is to create communion and transcendence. Please help us in our mission.”
