AL PACINO turned 82 on Monday and celebrated at an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood with his 28-year-old girlfriend Noor Alfallah.  And he was still rocking that “Shrek” phone case of his. Now it makes me wonder . . . is he trying to relate to his young girl with the “Shrek” case?  And if her name sounds familiar.  Well, this isn’t the first old man celebrity she’s dated. She’s the ex of MICK JAGGER.  They dated in 2017, he’s 78 now, but clearly, he was probably TOO YOUNG.  Because then in 2019 she was seen with CLINT EASTWOOD, who is now 91 . . . which must’ve been TOO OLD, obviously. So at 82, Al is JUST RIGHT.  (Is there such thing as a Goldilocks complex???) Noor did give a birthday shoutout to Al on her Instagram Story using a photo of him from the 1977 movie, “Bobby Deerfield”. 63-year-old Madonna and her 28-year-old boyfriend have reportedly broken up (LINK)

62 year old Actress Mackenzie Phillips Reveals She Is Bisexual saying. “I also love that I throughout my life have lived on both sides of the curtain,” she said.   “I’ve had boyfriends, I’ve had girlfriends, you know, throughout my life. I am neither one nor the other. I love our gay community. I mean, I love everybody,” she said, before clarifying “not everybody. Almost.”     The One Day At A Time star has a son Shane, 35, with her rocker ex-husband Shane Fontayne.   She last made headlines in 2009 when she disclosed that she had a 10-year consensual incestuous relationship with her late father, The Mamas & the Papas’ John Phillips. 

A New York Times documentary coming to FX and Hulu on May 20th will examine Elon Musk’s electric car company, Tesla.  Elon Musk’s Crash Course will trace “how Autopilot has been a factor in several deaths and dozens of other accidents that Tesla has not publicly acknowledged”, according to the Times, adding that it will examine the “pressure Elon Musk put on government officials to quash investigations.   The doc will also feature “inside stories from several former Tesla employees, who speak out against Musk for promoting a self-driving program that they believe was perilous.” 

The B-52s have announced their farewell tour and it’s going to be a party, with KC and The Sunshine Band and The Tubes supporting select dates.    B-52s cofounder Fred Schnieder said, “No one likes to throw a party more than we do, but after almost a half-century on the road, it’s time for one last blowout with our friends and family and our fans.”  Bandmate Kate Pierson added, “Who knew what started as a way to have some fun and play music for our friends at house parties in Athens in 1977 would evolve into over 45 years of making music and touring the world.”  The tour kicks off August 22nd in Seattle and wraps up on November 11th in Atlanta.  Get your ticket details at Theb52s.com The B-52s are also getting their own documentary, set to premiere in 2023. 

I thought we WEREN’T supposed to talk about Bruno . . . but it looks like we’re going to be doing it all summer long.  An “Encanto” sing-along concert tour kicks off July 18th in Ridgefield, Washington . . . which is just outside Portland, Oregon.  It’ll make 32 stops across the U.S. There will be a live onstage band accompanying the movie as it plays in its entirety. “Encanto” premiered in November of 2021, and won best animated film honors at the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Producers Guild of America Awards, and the BAFTAs, which are the British version of the Oscars.

Did you know the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never had a character say the full F-word?  A few characters have started to say it, but that doesn’t count.  OSCAR ISAAC tried to change that on “Moon Knight”.  Key word: tried. Oscar was inspired by this viral video of an English kid who gets a surprise punch in the face, and responds with a, quote, “Oh [eff], I can’t believe you’ve done this!”  So he thought he could pay homage to it.  In an interview with “Screen Rant (LINK), he said, quote, “I did a lot of takes where I actually say, ‘Oh, [eff]’ and I thought, in Disney, because it’s TV or whatever, that you get one F-bomb.  “But ultimately . . . We don’t even get the one, so we had to change it.” “Moon Knight” has a TV-14 rating (LINK) 

It generally costs between $15,000 and $60,000 to license a song for a movie, TV show, or video game.  But there’s one song that costs WAY more than that.  It’s actually THE most expensive song to license. So what is it? It’s AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”. “Varsity Blues” paid $500,000 and that was all the way back in 1999.  So it’s possible that the price has gone way up. It must be worth it, because it’s been used in tons of other movies, including “Deadpool 2”“Thor: Ragnarok”“Battleship”“Iron Man 2”“The Longest Yard”“Daddy’s Home” and “Daddy’s Home 2” (LINK)

New Arena (LINK) has compiled a list of the 25 most overrated bands of all time . . . maybe you’ll find some of your least favorites on it. 

Here are the Top 10: 

  1. Guns N’ Roses. . . “In terms of technical skill, Slash isn’t the best guitarist . . . they’re not an awful band, but to say they changed the hard rock game is a bit of a stretch.” 
  1. Motley Crue. . . “[They] had a few good songs.  The rest were nothing but fillers.  They fall under the ‘bands that are okay’ category, so it’d be great if fans don’t act like [they’re] the most outstanding rock act to emerge from the ’80s.” 
  1. The Doors. . . “The worst thing about [Jim] Morrison is his vocals put forth the image of a smarmy lounge singer.  I can’t help but imagine that he would be doing a lounge act in Vegas if he were alive today.” 
  1. KISS. . . “Gene Simmons will do anything for easy money.  It doesn’t matter if it’s selling coffins or delivering mediocre records on your front door.  Being a sellout is the surefire way to be hated.  However, KISS embraced it fully.” 
  1. U2. . . “They had some solid tunes, but they also had mediocre tracks which received major air plays.” 
  1. Genesis. . . “There are enjoyable tracks post-[Peter] Gabriel, and perhaps they wouldn’t be on this list if fans stopped hailing them as the best thing since sliced bread.” 
  1. Oasis. . . “They had good tracks, but are just so full of themselves.  They had big claims, but nothing to back those up.” 
  1. Bon Jovi. . . “Bon Jovi songs all sound the same.  There, I said it.  They are too commercialized.” 
  1. Green Day. . . “Billie Joe Armstrong’s voice, the punk equivalent of nails on a chalkboard.  And the fake accent?  It seems like everything they try to write is supposed to be some kind of statement.”
  2. Metallica . . . “To treat them like they’re the best thing metal has to offer is just ridiculous.  They’re not bad or untalented, they’re simply overhyped.  Both radio stations and other media can be blamed for playing average songs too much”

If you’re not drinking your partner’s blood, is it even true love?  After all, MEGAN FOX and MACHINE GUN KELLY do it . . . for ritual purposes.  And no, it’s not in a drinking-from-a-goblet, “Game of Thrones”-type of way. In an interview with Glamour UK (LINK), Megan said, quote, “It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.” Megan does tarot card reading and is into astrology and does metaphysical practices and meditations.  So when there’s a new or full moon, she has a special ritual she does, which is where the blood comes in. Quote, “When I do it, it’s a passage or it is used for a reason.  And it is controlled where it’s like, ‘Let’s shed a few drops of blood and each drink it.’  “He’s much more haphazard and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to just cut his chest open with broken glass and be like, ‘Take my soul.'”

Sports Report 1

Last night the Blues finally saw a loss in regulation as the Colorado Avalanche picked up the 5-3 win.  Brand Saad scored first for the Blues as they were already down 3-0 in the 2nd.  The Blues tried to come back making in 4-3 with 2 goals in about a minute from Ryan O’Reilly.  But it wasn’t enough as the Avs scored a late goal to seal the deal.  Up next, the final game of the season for the Blues as they take on the Knights at Enterprise Center on Friday.  Puck drop is scheduled for 7PM.  The Stars needed to win in regulation to knock out Vegas from their playoff chances…and….they won….in a shootout.  So for now….Vegas still has a shot.

Last night at Busch there were a couple bad things that took place.  Bad thing number 1, starter Jordan Hicks left the game with a wrist injury. Now, they say that there is nothing crazy going on and he actually expects to make his next start.  So…not terrible news.  But, also the Mets won 3-0.  Little day baseball today….Cards and Mets meet at 12:15 with Steven Matz getting the start.

Another team bounced from the NBA playoffs last night as the Heat win the series over the Hawks 4-1.  The Suns also beat the Pelicans to lead that series 3-2….and what about the middle game last night?  Well….

Game 5 of yesterdays Grizzlies/Timberwovles game was great. Came down to the wire and ended on a layup from Ja Morant with a second left on the clock – which eventually became the game winning shot.  But – people aren’t talking about Memphis being up 3-2…they are talking about “the shove.”  Memphis guard Desmond Bane and Minnesota coach Chris Finch had themselves a playoff moment. While Bane was on the sidelines waiting to throw an inbound pass, Finch was standing close to the Grizzlies guard and talking with the referee. Bane then attempted to move Finch away, which the second-year head coach was not pleased with. The official intervened immediately and assessed Bane with a technical foul.

Tonight the Bulls – down 3-1 – look to stay alive against the Bucks.  The Nuggets try and avoid elimination against the Warriors in the late game.

NASCAR announced Tuesday that Denny Hamlin will be required to complete a sensitivity training course that must begin by the end of the week. The Cup Series driver made a social media post on Monday using an anti-Asian “meme” from the television show Family Guy toward Kyle Larson regarding his final lap move in Sunday’s Talladega Superspeedway. Larson, who is half-Japanese and the reigning Cup Series champion, made a move in his final turn that helped him finish fourth overall in the race. However, his move was an aggressive one that caused Kurt Busch to crash. Per NASCAR’s rulebook, members are not allowed to “make or cause to be made a public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.” 

Vince Wilfork’s son, D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, pleaded guilty last week in Texas to stealing and selling a few of his father’s Super Bowl rings. The son was arrested and charged last year with felony theft of property greater than or equal to $300,000. Without his father’s permission, he took two Super Bowl rings, two AFC championship rings and a college football championship ring. As part of the verdict, the son was ordered to return the stolen jewelry to his father. Additionally, he must avoid committing other crimes, pay court fees and participate in a drug-screening program.

The Houston Dash have indefinitely suspended general manager and head coach James Clarkson pending the conclusion of an investigation of “alleged violations of the NWSL Policy to Prevent and Eliminate Workplace Discrimination, Harassment, and Bullying.” The investigative team recommended the suspension, and the Dash accepted the decision. The Dash named Clarkson as their head coach on Dec. 11, 2018.  We don’t REALLY know what happened because a lot of info isn’t being released….however…here is what the league said: “Players made a promise to ourselves and future generations to transform our League — not through words, but with our actions,” NWSLPA Executive Director Meghann Burke said in a statement. “This shows that our joint investigation is doing the work of systemic transformation. The work continues, and we commend Players for speaking up and speaking out.”

NCAA President Mark Emmert announced Tuesday that he would step down from his position in June 2023. He said: “I am extremely proud of the work of the Association over the last 12 years and especially pleased with the hard work and dedication of the national office staff here in Indianapolis.” If the NCAA appoints a new president before June 2023, Emmert will step down at that time. Emmert, 69, has served as the NCAA’s president since 2010, presiding over the most transformational period in the history of college sports after athletes were finally granted the right to profit off their name, image and likeness rights.
