Kanye West has been spotted hanging around with a woman lately . . . and that woman might be his WIFE. TMZ says her name is Bianca Censori, she’s Australian, she’s an architect who’s been working for Yeezy for years . . . and they recently got married. Well, they had a ceremony . . . but there’s no evidence that they got a marriage license to make it legal. Kanye is wearing a ring, though. Last month, Kanye released a song called “Censori Overload”, spelled the same way as his new lady’s last name. The lyrics don’t seem to be a tribute to Bianca, although this line is kind of interesting now: “And the Bible said I can’t have any more sex ’til marriage.” In case you’re wondering, Kim Kardashian might not be down with this. A so-called insider says she’s always had an eye on Bianca, because she felt there was sexual tension between her and Kanye. Quote, “Kim hates her. She’s pretty. And Kim hates pretty girls.” (TMZ)
Metallica’s James Hetfield wants to make it abundantly clear to his fans; he’ll never ask you for money online, because he isn’t really even online to begin with.After some fans got ripped off by scammers claiming to be the Metallica vocalist, Hetfield hopped onto Metallica’s official socials to write “There are people online that have assumed my identity, spreading misinformation, and have caused damage to other people. There are imposters and predators out there. This is out of my control, but it is in your control who you choose to connect with. Please be careful on socials and vet people before getting in contact with them.” Father Hetfield added “To be clear…I am not on any social media forms, Facebook, Instagram, etc. The only connection I have with social media is through the official Metallica website and official Metallica socials. If you are following or communicating with someone who you think is or is portraying themselves as me…It is not me.” Hetfield wrote the message with the hope that it “helps those who have been or are getting deceived and are ashamed to talk about it.”
SPEAKING OF METALLICA: Actress Margot Robbie continues to show her heavy metal pride, this time revealing that there are plenty of Slipknot fans who love a good soap opera. While appearing on a UK talk show, Robbie explained her goth, metal and emo days to actress Cate Blanchett. When Blanchett joked “Do you also like monster trucks and things like that?” Robbie replied, “No, but no, I really like heavy metal. I remember going to this Slipknot concert…at the time, I was on [the soap opera] ‘Neighbours’. I’ve never had more people come up to me, ever, than at a Slipknot concert. The crossover between – it wasn’t monster trucks and Slipknot; it was ‘Neighbours’ and Slipknot. It was so unexpected… They were so invested in ‘Neighbours’ and in Slipknot…” In the past Robbie has showed off her knowledge of all things Metallica and once confessed that Bullet for My Valentine got her “heart racing”.
Iggy Azalea has joined OnlyFans, but keep your pants on, Sparky . . . she’s probably NOT doing porn. She’s using it to promote her upcoming album “Hotter Than Hell”, and turn it into some kind of multimedia project. And she’s “only” charging $25 a month. But the content won’t necessarily be innocent, either. She says it’ll be, quote, “tongue-in-cheek fun and unapologetically hot.” She adds, quote, “I feel excited about not having to worry about the overwhelming and creatively limiting censorship artists have to navigate when sharing work on other digital platforms.”
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has revealed that Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge invited him to go alien hunting. Speaking backstage at the iHeartRadio ALTer Ego festival, Muse were asked if they’d ever “done a deep dive” on DeLonge and the “alien situation”. While bassist Chris Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard simply laughed at the idea, Bellamy answered “Yes. I’ve gone real deep on Tom DeLonge.” He explained: “I’ve hung out with him, and I’ve really pushed him. Apparently there’s a warehouse in Vegas holding some weird alien shit that he’s going to take me to one day. I’m holding him to it, and every time I see him, he says he ‘can’t do it this week, maybe next week.” “‘Come on, take me there’,” he continued. “He’s got some bold claims.” Somebody check on Britney.
We’ve seen her outbursts on social media, but this one went down in public. On Friday night, Britney Spears had a bizarre meltdown, prompting her husband to leave abruptly. Eyewitnesses tell TMZ that they showed up with a bodyguard at a LA restaurant called Joey. Britney was immediately recognized by the packed restaurant. People pulled out their phones and began taking pictures and filming her. Britney got pissed, and things went south quickly. Witnesses say Britney became “manic,” yelling and talking gibberish. Sam got visibly upset, abruptly stood up, and stormed out. We don’t know if he was upset at Britney or the people in the restaurant being rude and filming them. Maybe a combo of both. The video shows Brit sitting alone and speaking incoherently. Two minutes later, witnesses say, Britney got up and left the restaurant with her bodyguard, who soon returned to pay the bill. Reps for Britney and Sam denied a request for comment. #JusticeforBritney began trending after the video went viral, with her fans showing support.
Phineas and Ferb is returning to the small screen. During a presentation at the Television Critics Association winter press tour by Disney Branded Television President, Ayo Davis, the company announced the revival of the iconic animated series for 40 episodes after striking a new overall deal with the original series creator, Dan Povenmire. The episodes produced will be divided into two seasons. The new contract also included the renewal of the second season of the animated superhero series Hamster & Gretel as well as the development of future live-action projects, according to a press release. A five-time Emmy Awards winner, the show “depicts two resourceful stepbrothers who conquer boredom and make every day of summer vacation count, often to the chagrin of their sister Candace,” the logline from Disney read. The series originally aired on the Disney Channel from 2008 to 2015 before returning as movies with the latest installment debuting on Disney+ in 2020 entitled, Phineas and Ferb the Movies: Candace Against the Universe.
Bryan Cranston is down to revisit one of his iconic characters. The 66-year-old Breaking Bad actor expressed interest in returning to Malcolm in the Middle to film a big screen reunion for the beloved television series. He opened up about the idea and hinted at whispers behind the scenes in a new interview.
“There was some talk about the possibility of doing like a reunion movie of Malcolm in the Middle,” he told E! News earlier this week. “We had such a great family on that and I certainly would be open to that if there was a good idea that came up like, ‘Oh, that would be fantastic to explore what happened to this family 20 years later.’ I can’t believe it’s already that, but that would be fun to do.”
Bryan played Hal Wilkerson, husband to Jane Kaczmarek and father to the likes of Frankie Muniz, in the series which aired for six years, starting in 2000. Of course, to pull that off Frankie would have to take some time away from his new job, which he announced this week.
Ryan Reynolds loves to stay busy. Among the long list of projects coming from him in the next year, the actor has released the first look for the National Geographic series Underdogs, which he is producing under his own company, Maximum Effort.
As he usually does, Reynolds took to Twitter to share with his followers the first teaser for the show that will make its way to National Geographic in 2025, with him also narrating it. Underdogs is a ten-part natural history series that will spotlight the unique and unpredictable behaviors of a cast of little-known animal characters in the natural world, including their camouflage techniques, parenting skills, and courtship rituals.
Bachman-Turner Overdrive drummer and co-founder, Robbie Bachman, passed Thursday at 69. Bachman’s bandmate and brother, Randy, announced his passing, sharing ““Another sad departure. The pounding beat behind BTO, my little brother Robbie has joined Mum, Dad and brother Gary on the other side. Maybe Jeff Beck needs a drummer! He was an integral cog in our rock ‘n’ roll machine and we rocked the world together.” BTO disbanded in 1980 but would later reform in 1983, with Robbie electing against joining the reunion. The band’s 1984 self-titled album would be the only album from the band to not feature Robbie on drums.
Amanda Seyfried missed last week’s Golden Globes because she was busy “workshopping” a project. Well, it turns out that project was a new version of “Thelma & Louise”. But it’s not for the big or small screen. It’s actually a stage musical. And apparently, Evan Rachel Wood was workshopping it with her. All the way back in June of 2021, Callie Khouri . . . the original “Thelma & Louise” screenwriter . . . called the musical version a “reimagining” and said it’s a “completely different animal.” So we’ll see where that goes (Hollywood Reporter)
Marie Osmond won’t be giving her seven kids an inheritance when she passes. She told “US Weekly” that she thinks all it does is “breed laziness and entitlement.” Quote, “Honestly, why would you enable your child to not try to be something? I don’t know anybody who becomes anything if they’re just handed money . . . “To me, the greatest gift you can give your child is a passion to search out who they are inside and to work. I mean, I’ve done so many things from designing dolls and much more. I love trying and I wanna try everything.” Marie added that she has a rule with her kids that if they start something, they have to finish it. She said she’s a finisher and has worked hard for her money, so she’s going to spend it all by having fun with her husband (Yahoo!)
