Miley Cyrus and Elon Musk Joke About Launching to Moon Together

 Miley and The Kid will drop their cover of his song "Without You" on Friday 




Impending Saturday Night Live melodic visitor and host Miley Cyrus and Elon Musk kidded about launching to the moon together in a progression of tweets on Wednesday (Apr. 28). The far-fetched couple, who will visit Studio 8H on May 8, occupied with a to and fro started off when a fan posted an image of Musk in Miley gear 


riding a destroying ball with subtitle, "Okay Elon just... listen to me," apparently recommending a collab between the Tesla/Space X chief and the artist.


Musk appeared amused, responding, "Might be something there haha." So, of course, Miley had to take it a step further, responding with a rocketship, moon and Saturn emoji and the message, "@elonmusk I'm down if you are! #MileyAndMusk to the moon!" Billionaire Musk is making his hosting debut, while SNL vet Cyrus is returning just over a year after her surprise April 2020 performance during the second at-home pandemic episode, where she performed a cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here."

While it's unknown if we'll get a MuskCyrus mash-up, Miley confirmed that she's bringing her duet pal The Kid LAROI along for her SNL appearance. "Live from New York with little bro.... @thekidlaroi @nbcsnl," she tweeted on Wednesday night alongside an image of the two chilling on one of Cyrus' road cases.

Marilyn Manson Sued for Rape, Sex Dealing by 'Round of Seats' Entertainer Esmé Bianco

 Manson's previous administrator Tony Ciulla and his administration organization likewise blamed for dealing 





Round of Seats entertainer Esmé Bianco has sued Marilyn Manson and his previous administrator, Tony Ciulla, claiming that the vocalist assaulted and explicitly battered her. The grumbling, recorded Friday in the US Area Court for the Focal Locale of California, additionally guarantees that Manson, whose genuine name is Brian Warner, Ciulla, and Ciulla's administration organization


violated human-trafficking laws by bringing her from London to Los Angeles under the pretense that she would be acting in a music video that never came out and a film that was never made.

The British actress, who played Ros on the hit HBO show, was one of more than a dozen women to speak out against the shock-rocker earlier this year. In February, she detailed the alleged abuse stemming from her relationship with Warner when they were a couple in 2011 in an interview with New York magazine. On Friday, she added fresh claims in the new legal filing. The complaint marks the first legal action against Warner since allegations of sexual and physical abuse surfaced this year.

“Mr. Warner used drugs, force, and threats of force to coerce sexual acts from Ms. Bianco on multiple occasions,” the lawsuit says. “Mr. 

Warner raped Ms. Bianco in or around May 2011.” It goes on to claim that Warner “committed sexual acts” with Bianco at times when she was unconscious or unable to consent, and lists the ways she claims he sexually battered her: “These acts include spanking, biting, cutting, and whipping Ms. Bianco’s buttocks, breasts, and genitals for Mr. Warner’s sexual gratification — all without the consent of Plaintiff.”

Bianco alleges that Warner violated California laws for sexual assault and sexual battery, further claiming that Warner and Ciulla violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. Ciulla Management — the company founded by Ciulla that has managed the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Rob Zombie, Tove Lo, and others over the years — is also named as a defendant in the last claim. Ciulla represented Warner for more than 25 years before cutting ties with him in February following the assault allegations

5 captured in assault and theft of Woman Gaga's canine walker

 5 captured in assault and theft of Woman Gaga's canine walker 





Five suspects have been captured in the February shooting assault and burglary of a man who was strolling Woman Gaga's canines, the Los Angeles Police Office said Thursday. Criminal investigators said they don't really accept that the presumes assaulted the man in light of the fact that Gaga was the proprietor of the canines. 


Police said James Jackson, 18; Jaylin White, 19; and Lafayette Whaley, 27; were accused of endeavored murder. Harold White, 40; and Jennifer McBride, 50; deal with indictments of being an assistant to endeavored murder.




On February 24, police said the victim, identified as Ryan Fischer, was walking the singer's three French bulldogs at 9:40 p.m. local time when he was approached by two suspects, who demanded the victim to turn over the dogs. After a struggle, one of the suspects fired a single shot, police said, and the suspects fled with two of the dogs. The third dog ran away but was later found.

Lady Gaga offered a $500,000 reward for her dogs to be returned, which police said McBride responded to. They said she claimed to have found the dogs and brought them to a local police station. 


Detectives later determined she had a relationship with White's father. Police said Jackson, Whaley and Jaylin and Harold White are all gang members.

Josh Duggar argues not liable to government kid porn charges following capture

 The previous '19 Children and then some' star has been accused of getting and having material portraying the sexual maltreatment of kids 





Josh Duggar argued not liable to charges of ownership of kid erotic entertainment in court on Friday, one day following his capture. 


The meeting, which was held essentially over Zoom in the Western Locale of Arkansas, started at 11 a.m. CT. Duggar showed up from prison and was seen grinning before the consultation started off. He was addressed by Arkansas lawyer Travis W. Story.




The United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas confirmed the 33-year-old former "19 Kids and Counting" star has been charged with receiving and possessing material depicting the sexual abuse of children.

Duggar is accused of allegedly using "the internet to download child sexual abuse material. Duggar allegedly possessed this material, some of which depicts the sexual abuse of children under the age of 12, in May 2019," a release from the US Attorney's Office states.


Duggar is charged by indictment. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and fines up to $250,000 on each count.


 A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.


Duggar's charges were not read aloud during the hearing -- a request made by his attorney and granted by the court. His attorney pleaded "not guilty to both counts."

Duggar's attorney is requesting he be released on bond. A trial date for his case was set for July 6, with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for July 1. Prior to trial and based on his request to be released from jail on bond, Federal Magistrate Judge Erin L. Wiedemann informed Duggar's attorneys that if he is eligible for release, he would be required to reside with a third-party custodian.

Wiedemann informed Duggar that he cannot be in the presence of minors if he is released from jail. A hearing set to determine whether he will be released is scheduled for May 5 at 1:30 p.m. CT.


"Given the nature of the charges against him, the court would likely require a third-party custodian that he could reside with and that would ensure compliance with conditions of bond so you all would need to get that line out and inform our probation office of who that person is so they could interview that person," Wiedemann said. 


"They also will want to interview Mr. Duggar. They won't discuss your charges Duggar but they will interview you for information to determine whether you're a good person for release, in a residence where they are no minors in the home or that would be visiting unsupervised," the judge continued.

JOSH DUGGAR'S TACTICS IN REAL ESTATE LAWSUIT WERE 'DEFINITELY NOT CHRISTIANLIKE,' PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEY SAYS


Defense counsel was ordered to propose a third-party custodian to the probation office.

The former reality star will remain in custody pending the May 5 hearing.


The 33-year-old was arrested on Thursday afternoon local time, according to an online profile from the Washington County Sheriff's Office.


Back in 2019, the car dealership where Duggar worked was raided by Homeland Security in connection with an ongoing federal investigation, though it's currently unclear if the raid and his arrest are connected.


Earlier the same week, it was reported that the Duggar household was also raided, though the family denied it.

Marvel and Star Wars Committed A similar Lowlife Error (With A similar Entertainer)

 The Hawk and the Colder time of year Warrior committed a comparable scoundrel error submitted by Solo. Incidentally, Erin Kellyman depicted the two characters in center. 





Wonder's The Hawk and the Colder time of year Trooper rehashed a similar scalawag botch as Solo: A Star Wars Story with the abuse of entertainer Erin Kellyman. The Disney+ miniseries as of late reached a conclusion after a six-scene stretch, following Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) following the occasions of Vindicators: Endgame. Solo, an individual Disney-claimed property, appeared in 2018 and filled in as a prequel to the first Star Wars set of three by giving Harrison Passage's Han Solo a birthplace story.




Whereas Kellyman portrayed Karli Morgenthau in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the actress made her feature film debut by playing Enfys Nest in Solo

It's not uncommon for Star Wars actors to make the jump to the MCU, and vice versa. Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson were two of the firsts to have prominent roles in both franchises before names like Paul Bettany, Ben Mendelsohn, Lupita Nyong'o, Donald Glover, and Mads Mikkelsen joined them in the Disney era. Emilia Clarke might follow in Kellyman's footsteps by making the jump from Solo to a Disney+ MCU miniseries with her reported casting in Secret Invasion. On the flip side, there's a push from Star Wars to cast Stan as a younger Luke Skywalker for a future project.

Not only was Kellyman cast in both Star Wars and Marvel titles, but the respective characters shared several glaring similarities, but not in a good way. In Solo, Enfys Nest served as a secondary antagonist, leading a group of pirates known as the Cloud-Riders. Though she was a resistance fighter battling crime syndicate Crimson Dawn, her missions to steal valuable coaxium put her at odds with Han Solo. Similarly, Kellyman's role as Karli in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier pinned her against the primary protagonists while leading a group of revolutionaries called the Flag-Smashers. Like Solo, the MCU series failed to execute the "villain" with an impactful arc.

Woman Gaga's supposed dognappers captured and charged for theft, endeavored murder of canine walker

 In late February, the 'Downpour On Me' vocalist's two canines were taken and her canine walker was shot in the chest 





The presumes who purportedly took Woman Gaga's two French Bulldogs, Gustav and Koji, and shot her canine walker, Ryan Fischer, in the chest have been captured and charged. 


As indicated by the Los Angeles Police Office, different individuals were captured Thursday. Police affirmed they have captured five suspects with some on charges of endeavored murder and burglary.




Police arrested James Jackson, 18, Jaylin White, 19, and Lafayette Whaley, 27, in connection with the violence. They are charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and second-degree robbery, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

LADY GAGA'S DOG WALKER REVEALS HIS LUNG COLLAPSED SEVERAL TIMES AFTER BEING SHOT



Meanwhile, Harold White, 40, and Jennifer McBride, 50, were arrested and accused of being accessories to the attack. The elder White also was charged with one count of possession of a firearm and McBride faces a charge of receiving stolen property.

According to authorities, White and McBride "were determined to be accessories after the initial crime. McBride reported that she found the dogs and responded to the reward email to return the dogs." Police also determined that McBride had a relationship with White, the father of Jaylin.

"Detectives do not believe the suspects were targeting the victim because of the dogs' owner," said the LAPD's statement. "However, evidence suggests the suspects knew the great value of the breed of dogs and was the motivation for the robbery."
The Whites, Jackson and Whaley are all "documented gang members from Los Angeles," said the statement.

Back on February 24, Fischer was walking Gaga's French bulldogs named Miss Asia, Koji, and Gustav at night in Los Angeles.

He was violently attacked and two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen.

Fischer was rushed to hospital where he underwent surgery and thankfully a few days later Gaga's dogs were returned safely.

The dogs were reportedly found tied to a pole. "The woman found the dogs and reached out to Lady Gaga’s staff to return them. The woman’s identity and the location the dogs were found will remain confidential due to the active criminal investigation and for her safety," police said in a statement at the time


LADY GAGA'S DOG WALKER GIVES UPDATE AFTER SHOOTING: 'A LOT OF HEALING STILL NEEDS TO HAPPEN'

Fischer previously said in an Instagram post, "I am humbled and grateful that attention and focus from the police were enough to get Koji and Gustav back to safety, and I know they are committed to bringing these criminals and attempted murderers to justice. I am so appreciative of everything you continue to do."

Gaga had offered a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her dogs. "My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness," the singer wrote on Twitter.

How Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett's Two 'Secondary School Melodic' Tunes Became One Two part harmony

 Before their conjectured offscreen relationship show helped prod a Board Hot 100 No. 1 hit, Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett 






recorded a two part harmony about their onscreen heartfelt predicament for Secondary School Melodic: The Melodic: The Arrangement. 


The two-section melody will show up during the second period of the Disney+ arrangement, which debuts May 14, in which Nini (Rodrigo) and Ricky (Bassett) explore their significant distance relationship after she takes off to the Denver-based Youth Entertainers Center, leaving Ricky, the East High Wildcats and their spring melodic creation behind in Salt Lake City, Utah. The "Valentine's Day" scene spotlights Nini and Ricky attempting to genuinely spend the occasion together, after Ricky takes a transport to Denver to astonish Nini with the new love tune he composed for her named "In any event, When" - just for Nini to astound Ricky external his (old) house in Salt Lake City and sing her own heartfelt number "The Most awesome thing."





Toward the end of the episode, the high school sweethearts simultaneously perform their songs while leaving voicemails for each other shortly before the clock strikes midnight and signals the end of Valentine's Day. The result is "Even When/The Best Part," a swoon-worthy "accidental duet" featuring Bassett on guitar and Rodrigo on ukulele that strategically synthesizes their individual songs together like two pieces of a puzzle.

This song originated in the writers' room when our writing producer Zach Dodes said, 'Wouldn't it be cool if Ricky and Nini kept missing each other on Valentine's Day, and so they each call each other at midnight and play a song they wrote for the other one -- and through the magic of showbiz, the songs blended together?'" Tim Federle, the series' creator, showrunner and executive producer, says in a statement to Billboard. "Olivia and Josh are such talented singer-actors, and the songwriters struck the perfect note in writing this 'accidental duet.'"

Disney Channel veteran songwriter and producer Mitch Allan, Chantry Johnson and Michelle Zarlenga knew going into the writing session in January 2020 that they were writing one song with two songs nested inside it. 

In a statement, Disney Branded Television vp of music and soundtracks Steve Vincent commended the team for taking on "the unique challenge of writing two songs that musically fit together when played simultaneously and [delivering] a 'duet' that captures the spirit of Valentine’s Day, and the voices of the characters expressing their love for one another."

We definitely knew we had some kind of mental gymnastics to do to get ourselves to a place where we could write two songs that happened to work at the same time and really work on the structure of each to make them flow like a unit," Zarlenga tells Billboard.

44 Features About Kate Middleton That Show How The UK Press Eased Off After She Wedded Sovereign William

 This is The Illustrious Tea, BuzzFeed News' bulletin where you can get imperial family news and examination, served steaming hot. Join here.




An audit of thousands of articles from the a long time since Sovereign William and Kate's relationship became public shows that steady maltreatment and badgering from the press offered approach to applaud — when Meghan Markle turned into an illustrious. 



Prince William had been secretly dating Kate Middleton for almost a year when the paparazzi caught the young couple on the ski slopes of Klosters, Switzerland, in April 2004. From that moment, Kate’s private life ended and she was in the crosshairs of the British press, the first publicly acknowledged girlfriend of the future king.

It’s been 17 years since those photos were taken; 10 years since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey to marry her prince and officially become the Duchess of Cambridge, a member of the royal family.

But those photos marked the beginning of six years of hell for Kate and her family. Some paparazzi photos of Kate while she was dating William eerily recall images taken of Diana before her engagement to Prince Charles was announced.

I reviewed tens of thousands of stories from the UK outlets that make up the official royal press system, known as the “royal rota”: the Daily Express, the Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, and the Sun — all tabloids — and the Evening Standard, the Telegraph, and the Times from April 1, 2004, when the Sun broke the news of Kate and William’s relationship, to April 29, 2021, their 10th wedding anniversary. Specifically, I looked to see if there was a change in how the press covered Kate after she was officially engaged to William. There was.

Two major shifts happened after those initial nightmare years. First, Kate got married, and the coverage around her toned down, the criticism now focusing on her hair and wardrobe instead of her middle-class roots, or her and William’s perceived laziness and love of expensive vacations.


Second, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry. And in the eyes of the press, Kate could suddenly do no wrong.

The news outlets and the Palace didn’t return requests for comment.


How the British press — especially in this case the “red top” tabloids — cover the royals and engage with the Palace media operation matters. 

Every week, millions read their coverage of the House of Windsor, the historically colonialist head of 54 nations around the world and an institution that is grappling to stay relevant in a changing society. By what these outlets choose to cover and how, they are able to put forth and perpetuate narratives about specific members of the royal family — especially the women who marry into it — agitating race, class, and gender divides that can hyperpolarize readers.

Goodness, Flawless, Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell Are Back Together

 Goodness, Flawless, Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell Are Back Together 





One month after Lone ranger star Matt James parted ways with his season's champ, Rachael Kirkconnell, on public TV, refering to her set of experiences of bigoted activities and obliviousness, the couple are reviving their relationship. Indeed, truly. After the entirety of that. We'd quote something from Get Out, yet to be perfectly honest, we're depleted. The team have been seen together as of late in both New York City and Los Angeles, with James currently affirming to Individuals that



they’re indeed back in each other’s romantic orbits. “I’ve seen Rachael a handful of times,” he explained. “I’m not pursuing any relationships right now outside of that. I said I was going to focus on my relationship with her and that means focusing on it.” If you’re confused about this reconciliation, it’s because it’s the antithesis of everything James stated during his Bachelor finale: At the time, he said that learning about Kirkconnell’s past, coupled with her initial defensiveness, made it clear that they “can’t be” together.

The most disappointing thing for me was having to explain to you why what I saw was problematic and why I was so upset. And that’s why it was problematic,” James explained to her in the March 15 finale. “When I questioned our relationship, it was in the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness and what it means to be a Black man in America. And what it would mean for our kids when I saw those things that were floating around the Internet. And it broke my heart, because this is the last conversation I thought we’d be having.” James was 

referring to photographs that emerged of Kirkconnell gleefully attending an antebellum-South-themed party in college. While not discussed in the finale, social media users have also unearthed Kirkconnell’s history of “liking” photos of Confederate imagery.

Through tears, Kirkconnell accepted James’s engagement breakup in the finale, and blamed her “ignorance” for her past actions. She has since been keeping her social media followers appraised with the steps she’s taking towards her antiracism education, in addition to admonishing supporters who have been sending racist insults to James. As for James, he’s expressed frustration that he had to take on the role of a racism educator for the franchise, stating that “we don’t have that chance to have that ignorance.” Let’s check in with Chris Harrison to see how he’s feeling about this. Not.

Signal the Apparition Planet tune "California" since Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke are truly taking The O.C. fans "directly back where we began from." The two entertainers dispatched their fresh out of the box new web recording, Welcome To The O.C., Bitches on Tuesday, April 27 by taking us in the background of the notable high schooler dramatization's absolute first scene. Bilson and Clarke played Summer Roberts and Julie Cooper, separately.


In their weekly rewatch podcast, both of them will chronologically binge the Fox show set in the affluent Newport Beach and provide insider details and feature interviews with the cast and crew. They kicked off the first episode by speaking with The O.C. creator Joshua Schwartz, who is also known for developing Gossip Girl, Chuck, and more recently Hulu’s Looking For Alaska and The CW’s Nancy Drew. He’s basically helped drive television’s yearning for young adult dramas.
In the over 90 minute podcast episode, the three of them reflect on the show’s legacy. The O.C. was incredibly popular when it premiered in 2003 and while the same impact didn’t retain for its four-season run, the drama gradually became a pop culture phenomenon. Bilson, Clarke, and Schwartz talk about the making of the pilot, Schwartz’s inspirations for the character dynamics (think E.T. and Elliott’s friendship for Ryan and Seth), and the casting process for its protagonists, including Ben McKenzie as Ryan Atwood, Adam Brody as Seth Cohen, Mischa Barton as Marissa Cooper, and Peter Gallagher as everyone’s favorite fictional dad, Sandy Cohen.

In fact, Bilson revealed that she really wanted to play Marissa initially and Schwartz spoke about how Olivia Wilde, who plays Alex in season two, also auditioned for Marissa. Friday Night Lights Garrett Hedlund was a frontrunner for Ryan, but Atwood’s take on the character won everyone over. 

The trio also unpack the show’s instantly iconic moments (the character’s greeting each other with “Hey,” Summer’s “Ew, Chino” delivery, and Luke’s (Chris Carmack) dialogue “Welcome to the O.C., bitch,” also the the inspiration for the podcast title).

Chloé Zhao's Notable Oscar Wins Edited in China, however Fans Look for some kind of employment Arounds




While the world observed China-conceived chief Chloé Zhao's noteworthy three Oscar wins for "Nomadland" including best picture, best chief and best entertainer, China's edits were occupied with attempting to wipe any hint of the Foundation Grants from the web. 


An underlying eruption of festivity and complimentary messages showed up on Chinese online media soon after the function, which broadcasted Monday early daytime Beijing time. However, by evening, hardly any follows stayed as controls cut down by far most online media posts, news stories, hashtags, pictures, recordings and search themes identified with Zhao or the occasion.


Instead of celebrating Chloé Zhao’s wins at the Oscars and making the Chinese public [feel] proud, Beijing is busy censoring her — all for a criticism she made in 2013,” tweeted New York Times Asia tech columnist Li Yuan in disbelief, citing a critical comment about China Zhao made to a U.S. magazine that has made her the target of Chinese nationalist trolls. “For as long as I’ve been writing about Chinese censorship and propaganda, I still can’t wrap my mind around it.”


Official Chinese media such as the Communist Party mouthpiece the People’s Daily, the state broadcaster CCTV and the Xinhua news agency published nothing about the Oscars or Zhao’s win — an unusual move, given that they are typically quick to highlight and claim overseas film awards won by ethnic Chinese artists as wins for China. At least four state media reporters told Western news outlets that they had been ordered by the country’s propaganda bureau not to report on the Oscars at all.
Only the tabloid-esque Global Times wrote on the subject, posting two English-language articles late in the day that did not appear in Chinese. In a reported piece, the paper cited a local critic as saying that Zhao’s win was primarily due to “the Oscars’ ‘political correctness’.” A separate editorial urged her to “become more and more mature” and “avoid being a friction point” in worsening U.S.-China relations.

Just hours before, the paper’s notoriously pugnacious editor-in-chief Hu Xijin himself congratulated Zhao for her win on Weibo. For the film to have won prizes “is not after all a bad thing,” he wrote.


“I hope everyone can understand that my support for the criticism of Zhao’s improper remarks is not at odds with congratulating her on the awards.” The post was soon deleted.
Celebrating “023456789” by “That Girl”
With censors on high alert, fans seeking to celebrate or discuss the Oscars had to come up with new ways of evading censorship: blurring out Zhao’s name, rotating images, adding scribbles to text or photos, or inventing new words and phrases.


“I had to take a screenshot, flip it upside down, translate it and change the phonetics just to post a winners list. People worked on posts all morning and they won’t go out,” one frustrated film blogger wrote. “It’s not embarrassing if you don’t win a prize; it’s only embarrassing if you win the prize and can’t celebrate it.”

Billie Eilish delivering new collection, More joyful Than at any other time, this July

 Billie Eilish is back, she's a blonde now, and she's had a beneficial quar. Subsequent to 




prodding another collection during a meeting with Stephen Colbert back in February, Eilish has authoritatively reported her profoundly expected, second full-length collection, More joyful Than at any other time, set for discharge on July 30



Eilish made the announcement on Instagram, where she debuted the cover art for Happier Than Ever, which features a low-key portrait of a blonde Eilish wrapped in a white cardigan—a striking contrast to the aesthetic she sported during and after the release of her first album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Eilish, who has spoken out against body-shaming and criticized the objectification of women’s bodies, typically rebels against gender and social norms in her looks, which makes the simplicity of this new image even more intriguing. 


In addition to announcing the new album, Eilish revealed that she’s dropping a new single from the album this Thursday, April 29. As with her debut album and EP, Don’t Smile At Me, Eilish recorded Happier Than Ever with her brother and collaborator, Finneas. The pair netted multiple Grammy awards in 2020 for her first album, including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Producer.

Britney Lances to address court at impending conservatorship hearing

 Britney Lances will address the court at a forthcoming conservatorship hearing. 





Lances' lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, talked at a conference Tuesday at Los Angeles Predominant Court. He expressed, "Britney needs to address the court straightforwardly," adding that she might want it to occur inside the following month. CNN went to for all intents and purposes. 


That meeting will happen on June 23.


The battle over Spears' $60 million estate has been going on for months. It started last August when Ingham filed to officially remove her father, Jamie Spears, as conservator. The elder Spears had been the conservator of her estate since 2008, along with attorney Andrew Wallet, following a series of personal issues that played out publicly for the singer. For most of that period, Jamie Spears also oversaw his daughter's health and medical decisions. He became the sole conservator of the singer's estate in 2019, following Wallet's resignation.


In November, the judge ruled that he stay on as a co-conservator of the estate, and the judge appointed Bessemer Trust to serve as co-conservator.

At a hearing in March, Ingham requested that Jamie Spears be removed as the conservator of her person, and that he be permanently replaced with Jodi Montgomery. Montgomery has served as the singer's temporary conservator ever since Jamie Spears stepped aside due to health issues in September 2019.


In the wake of The New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears," which debuted in February, there has been heightened interest in the singer's conservatorship. Celebrities and fans have also created the viral hashtag #FreeBritney.

Spears has not directly addressed the conservatorship but has taken to social media to say that she's doing fine. Earlier this month, she wrote on Instagram that she's "flattered" with the attention surrounding her well-being.


"Happy to share especially with a world that is empathetic and concerned with my life," she wrote.

Jamie Spears told CNN in December he has not spoken to his daughter since Ingham's filing last summer.


"I love my daughter and I miss her very much," he said at the time. "When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up, as I have done for the last 12-plus years, to safeguard, protect and continue to love Britney unconditionally. I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family."


His attorney Vivian Thoreen told CNN that Jamie Spears wishes the conservatorship could come to an end.

(Jamie) would love nothing more than to see Britney not need a conservatorship," Thoreen said. "Whether or not there is an end to the conservatorship really depends on Britney. If she wants to end her conservatorship, she can file a petition to end it."

Carrie Ann Inaba Stands up on Instagram to Address Why She's Not on 'The Discussion'

 


On the April 26th scene of CBS's The Discussion, cohost Sheryl Underwood opened the show with some significant news about Carrie Ann Inaba. 




Carrie Ann is withdrawing from nonappearance from the show to zero in on her prosperity," Sheryl shared on camera. "She likes the help from every last bit of her fans and her family here at The Discussion. Carrie Ann, we miss you and we anticipate having you back with us soon." 





Carrie Ann's takeoff comes only fourteen days after The Discussion got back to CBS. The show had been on a month-long break provoked by a discussion including previous cohost Sharon Osbourne. Sharon left the television show program in late Walk after a live quarrel with Sheryl about bigotry.



How is Carrie Ann Inaba doing?







The same day Sheryl announced Carrie Ann's temporary departure, the Dancing With the Stars judge posted an Instagram video of herself explaining her decision.

"Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know personally that I have decided to take a leave of absence from The Talk to focus on my wellbeing. I know you guys understand, health is the most important thing," Carrie Ann said in the video. 

"So, I appreciate your support, I appreciate the love and support from The Talk family, and I hope to be back soon. Take care and I'll keep you updated. Thank you."
So far, Carrie Ann hasn't provided more details on the state of her health now.

 During a January Talk segment, Carrie Ann shared that she had been experiencing a few lingering effects of COVID-19 after testing positive back in December.
 It's unclear if her previous COVID bout is related to her current health situation.
For years, Carrie Ann has been open about her autoimmune diseases and health issues, including lupus and Sjögren’s syndrome, fibromyalgia, iron deficiency anemia, depression and anxiety. Prevention also reports that Carrie Ann deals with spinal stenosis, chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic pain. 

In early March of this year, Carrie Ann took some time off after experiencing arm numbness and "sharp shooting pains." The Talk cohost later determined her symptoms were caused by her spinal stenosis acting up as a result of inflammation and a fibromyalgia flare.

In 2019, Carrie Ann told People that despite everything, she sees a positive side to it all.
There’s a blessing in some of these health conditions because it gives you a greater awareness of your own health," she told the outlet. "It makes you take care of yourself and realize it’s a very important component of a healthy lifestyle is to see the doctor regularly, make sure that you’re keeping up all your checkups and getting the right tests."

 For All Humankind Finale: Michael Dorman Responds to That Tremendous Gordo Curve




For All Humankind Manager on Why Finale's Grievous Curve Was 'the Correct Closure' for [Spoiler], What It Means for Season 3 



Created by Annie Weisman (The Path, Desperate Housewives) and premiering Friday, June 18 with its first three episodes (followed by a new episode weekly), the 1980s-set, half-hour dark comedy follows Sheila Rubin, a seemingly dutiful housewife who supports her smart-but-controversial husband’s (Superstore’s Rory Scovel) bid for state assembly. “But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see,” reads the synopsis. “She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image… that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.”

At first hooked on the exercise fad itself, Sheila’s real road to empowerment comes when she discovers a way to merge her newfound passion with the burgeoning technology of videotape, to start a revolutionary business. Physical tracks her journey from a stifled, overlooked enabler to a powerful, confident economic force, as Sheila transforms into someone we take for granted today (but was entirely radical at the time) — the female lifestyle guru.

Iran hands English Iranian cause laborer Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe another prison sentence

 An Iranian court has given English Iranian foundation laborer Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe another one-year prison sentence and travel prohibition on 





charges of spreading publicity against the system, her significant other said on Monday. 


Zaghari-Ratcliffe was first kept at a Tehran air terminal in April 2016 after an excursion to see her family with her little girl. She was blamed for working with associations purportedly endeavoring to topple the Iranian system and was subsequently indicted and condemned to five years in prison.


Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her employer, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, have repeatedly denied the espionage charges against her. The case has sparked a dispute between Britain and Iran.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson told reporters he doesn't "think it's right at all that Nazanin should be sentenced to any more time in jail."


"I think it's wrong that she's there in the first place," he continued, before adding that the UK government would "redouble our efforts, and we are working with our American friends on this issue as well."

Johnson later tweeted: "Iran's decision to sentence Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to another year in prison is cruel, inhumane and wholly unjustified."

British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has her ankle monitor removed but faces new court date

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Twitter called the latest sentence "totally inhumane and wholly unjustified."


"We continue to call on Iran to release Nazanin immediately so she can return to her family in the UK. We continue to do all we can to support her," he added.


Her legal representative in the UK, REDRESS, has said it is not clear whether Zaghari-Ratcliffe will be returned to prison or house arrest with an ankle tag.

UK lawmaker Tulip Siddiq, who represents the constituency where the family live in Britain, called the new jail term "absolutely devastating" in a post on Twitter. She said that it was "shocking that her husband was only just notified" and added that the latest charges were "another abusive use of her as a bargaining chip."

Zaghari-Ratcliffe was given British diplomatic protection in 2019 and has been designated a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International.


She has undertaken at least three hunger strikes during her detention, one of them in a desperate bid to seek medical treatment for lumps in her breasts and numbness in her limbs. Last February, her family said she believed she had contracted Covid-19 in Evin Prison outside Tehran.

In 2019, her supporters said she was transferred to mental ward of a hospital in Tehran and was being denied visits from her father.

Steven Spielberg's West Side Story trailer echoes a work of art

 The redo is at last on its way following a year delay 





Following a year delay, Steven Spielberg's West Side Story at last has a trailer. The new film melodic is a redo of the 1961 work of art and dependent on this trailer, which appeared Sunday during the 93rd Foundation Grants, it appears Spielberg is keeping many things devoted to the first.


The trailer spends a bit of time setting up the plot of the movie, which is basically Romeo and Juliet with two rival New York street gangs subbing in for the lovers’ royal feuding families. But for obvious reasons, the focus is on the singing and dancing.





The trailer gives us brief glances at some of the musical’s most famous songs like “Dance at the Gym” and “Tonight,” which all seem to share the original version’s theatrical scale and beautiful colors. The trailer also spends a bit of extra time recreating the original movie’s fantastic intro.





Spielberg’s remake stars Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) as Tony, the show’s Romeo stand-in, and Rachel Zegler as Maria, its Juliet. The film also stars Ariana DeBose (Hamilton), Mike Faist (Dear Evan Hansen), and Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight, Shrek The Musical). Rita Morena, who won an Oscar for her role as Anita in the original movie, will also return for the remake in a new supporting role.


West Side Story is set to release in theaters on Dec. 10. It was originally scheduled to premiere in December of last year, but was delayed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Glenn Close's popular 'Da Butt' dance at 2021 Oscars was prearranged: report

 The 'Hillbilly Funeral poem' star twerked during the 93rd Foundation Grants service 




The 2021 Oscars had various discussed minutes: Brad Pitt's man bun, Tyler Perry's moving acknowledgment discourse and Daniel Kaluuya applauding his folks for having intercourse - however it was Glenn Close's dance second that turned into a viral gif.


During the awards ceremony on Sunday night, comedian and actor Lil Rel Howery quizzed attendees about songs that may or may not have been nominated for Oscars in the past. 


The "Hillbilly Elegy" star correctly identified Experience Unlimited's "Da Butt" and then expertly danced along to the song. The track was featured in Spike Lee's 1988 film "School Daze." It did not receive an Oscar nomination. 




Wait a second. Wait a second. That’s Da Butt," Close said. "It was a classic song by the great Washington, D.C. go-go band E.U. Shoutouts to Sugar Bear and the Backyard Band and the whole DMV."

While some viewers at home thought the moment was spontaneous, it was in fact not. The Los Angeles Times confirmed that Close’s twerking was scripted. 




The trophy for best original song this year went to H.E.R. along with collaborators Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas for "Fight for You" from "Judas and the Black Messiah." "I am so, so, so grateful, not only to win but to be a part of such an important, important story," the singer said in her acceptance speech. "Thank you to the Academy — I’ve always wanted to say that! I have to thank God for giving us these gifts. And my parents, my beautiful mother who’s here with me today and my father at home, all those days of listening to Sly & the Family Stone and Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye really paid off, so thank you, Dad."

Two pass on and in excess of 100 test positive in Covid episode among US political staff in India

 There has been a significant Covid episode among US political staff in India with two privately utilized staff passing on and more than 





100 individuals testing positive as of late as the nation battles to adapt to a sensational flood of the destructive illness, two sources acquainted with the circumstance told CNN. 


Detailed Coronavirus case rates in India have hit worldwide highs for as far back as five successive days, clinics have run out of beds, medication, ventilators and oxygen, and thousands have kicked the bucket in the midst of an overwhelming second wave, which started a month ago.





The sources did not provide details where in the country the staff died and tested positive but the US operates five consulates in different cities and an embassy in the capital of New Delhi.

US personnel, family members and locally employed staff in India only began receiving their Covid vaccines within the past two weeks, one of the sources said. Within the past six weeks -- even as India's case rates were ticking up and staff had not yet been vaccinated -- there were two high-level trips by Biden administration officials to the country





As India breaks another global Covid-19 record and hospitals run out of oxygen, countries pledge assistance and aid

Sources told CNN that some staff were frustrated because they felt that they were not given clear information about when the US diplomatic mission would receive vaccines and they felt they were not being prioritized because many diplomatic staff in Europe and the US had already received their shots.


One source told CNN that the State Department had worked to get vaccines to locations where personnel live on campus -- including in Kabul and Baghdad -- which may have contributed to the Mission being so late in the queue. However, as one source noted, the vaccines "came too late for the two people who died ... it's horrible."

There were frustrations earlier this year from diplomats overseas about the pace at which they got the vaccines, which Secretary of State Tony Blinken acknowledged in remarks in February. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said earlier this month that as of April 18, the "department (had) completed deployment of vaccines to all of our posts abroad."


Much of the workforce is working from home due to the pandemic, sources said, and last week, the Embassy in the Indian capital of New Delhi moved to have even fewer staff work in person.

The embassy referred CNN to the State Department for comment.


A State Department spokesperson said that the "Department has no higher priority than the safety and security of its employees."


"We are closely monitoring the situation and we will take all necessary measures to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees, including offering vaccines to employees," they said.

State Department spokesperson Ned Price would not confirm the outbreak, claiming that "privacy considerations limit what we can say."


"India is enduring a deeply concerning outbreak and the entire country has been affected. We obviously do have a large diplomatic presence within India, it is tantamount to the deep engagement and partnership we have with India, but I'm not in a position to speak to any cases within our staff or embassy community," Price said at a briefing Monday.

Oscars evaluations dive to record low

 The 93rd Institute Grants endured a 13.75 million watcher drop-off from a year ago 



Less individuals checked out see "Nomadland" delegated best picture than some other Oscars function to date. 


The show, which saw various superstars make that big appearance to remark on or reference previous Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin's homicide conviction and police ruthlessness all in all, procured record-low appraisals as the show changed its setting and plan for request to oblige wellbeing worries because of the Covid.




According to Variety, citing early Nielsen numbers, an average of 9.85 million viewers watched the show Sunday evening, which is a 58.3%, 13.75 million viewer drop-off from last year. In addition, the show earned a mere 1.9 rating among the key demographic of adults age 18-49.

For comparison, that's a big drop-off from last year's 23.64 million viewers and a 5.3 in the key demographic -- both of those numbers were already previous all-time lows. 





Although the Oscars ratings have been declining in past years, the pandemic impacted both this year’s show as well as the movie industry at large. After the pandemic, Hollywood — and the Oscars — may not ever be quite the same. Or as WarnerMedia’s new chief executive Jason Kilar said when announcing plans to shift the studio’s movies to streaming: "We’re not in Kansas anymore."

For the first time, Hollywood's most prestigious awards will overwhelming belong to films that barely played on the big screen. The biggest ticket-seller of the best picture nominees is "Promising Young Woman," with $6.3 million in box office.


OSCAR-WINNER TRAVON FREE ADDRESSES POLICE KILLINGS IN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH


The low numbers come despite certain actors and actresses in certain categories being poised to make Oscars’ history with a win. For example, Chloe Zhao became the first woman of color (and the second woman ever) to win an Academy Award for best director while Steven Yeun and Riz Ahmed missed out on making diversity history in the best actor category. However, that ultimately went to Anthony Hopkins for his role in "The Father" in a massive upset to fellow best actor, nominee Chadwick Boseman, who was largely favored to win a posthumous award in the category.

Lara Logan: Extreme left can't change the way that 'Americans have confidence in policing

 Florida 'against revolt law' ordered by Gov. DeSantis scrutinized as bigoted 




Country have Lara Logan told "America Reports" Tuesday that the reaction against Florida Conservative Gov. Ron DeSantis over the state's new "hostile to revolt" law demonstrates that he is making the best decision.


LARA LOGAN: Well, that's how you know that Governor DeSantis is doing the right thing in the eyes of millions of Americans, because his critics are hammering him. And what you're not hearing from is all the people who support Governor DeSantis, which is typical of what's going on at the moment, which is where you only hear from one kind of view of America. You only hear from one set of people in terms of how they see this country and where they want this country to go. But it doesn't mean that all the other the millions of Americans who don't agree don't exist.


You can't change the truth. And the truth is, you can dominate Twitter, you can dominate the media. You can dominate the whole conversation. But you cannot change the fact that Americans believe in policing. And even though, you know, there's a long history of trying to change that through community organizations and local, you know, NGOs ... lots of euphemisms for social justice and, you know, mental health and wellbeing and using social services instead of the police.


These are just words that are used to cover up what is the real agenda here, which is to, you know, really to get rid of the police force and the penal system, you know, and get rid of prisons. If you look at Oakland, California, they closed their prison and nobody even blinked. You know, you don't hear anything about it. And crime isn't better in San Francisco. It's worse, but nobody cares.

Brad Pitt retaliates tears during 'Minari' entertainer's Oscars acknowledgment discourse

 Youn Yuh-jung procured a Foundation Grant for best supporting entertainer for her part in 'Minari' 





Brad Pitt seemed to destroy while watching entertainer Youn Yuh-jung acknowledge her honor at the 93rd Foundation Grants. 


Pitt was available to introduce the honor for the best supporting entertainer classification. Yuh-jung wound up winning the honor and impacting the world forever as the primary Korean entertainer to win an Oscar in that class for her part in the film "Minari." The film sees her play intense and decided authority of an Asian family who leaves California to seek after their fantasy about claiming a homestead in Arkansas.





After announcing her as the winner, Pitt stood off to the side while Yuh-jung gave her heartfelt and acceptance speech. However, at one point the camera briefly cut to Pitt who appeared to be fighting back tears as he listened to her words.

The two had a sweet moment together on stage prior to that as Yuh-jung opened her speech by briefly acknowledging she was a little star struck by the "Ad Astra" star’s presence. 

Mr. Brad Pitt, nice to meet you finally," she said while giggling. "Where were you when we were filming?" 

Pitt wasn’t the only star she name-dropped in her speech. 

How can I win over Glenn Close? I've been watching her so many performances," she said of her fellow supporting actress nominee. "So this is just, all the nominees, five nominees, we are the winners for the different movies. We play the different roles, so we cannot compete each other."


"I think I have just a little bit of luck, I think. Maybe I'm luckier than you, and also maybe it's American hospitality for the Korean actor? I'm not sure," she added.

Pitt himself is no stranger to the Oscars stage. During last year’s show, he took home the best supporting actor award for his critically acclaimed performance in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film "Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood."

The occasion marked the actor’s first ever solo Oscar win despite previously being nominated for his acting work in the films "Twelve Monkeys," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Moneyball." He had previously won an Oscar for producing the 2014 best picture hit "12 Years a Slave."

The Dad star talked in a video presented on his Instagram page (watch beneath) from his country of Ribs, where he apparently woke up to find the information on his startling success in the Best Entertainer classification. Hopkins was a flake-out at the face to face/virtual cross breed function, not in any event, showing up as his victory shut the evening on account of an uncommon running request.



Earlier this morning, Hopkins called The Father director Florian Zeller while the latter was appearing on BBC Radio 4 to discuss the film’s success. The director took home Best Adapted Screenplay for the script he co-penned with Christopher Hampton.

The 83-year-old Hopkins became the oldest ever Best Actor Oscar winner last night, surpassing Christopher Plummer who was 82 when he won for Beginners in 2011.


In his Instagram post, he also thanked Sony Pictures Classics, Florian Zeller, UTA, Jeremy Barber, Christine Crais, Mitch Smelkinson, Juan Miguel Arias, Tara Arroyave, my wife and family.


“Here I am in my homeland in Wales. At 83 years of age, I did not expect to get this award, I really didn’t,” Hopkins said in the video. “I’m very grateful to the Academy – thank you.

I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who was taken from us far too early. Again, thank you all very much. I really did not expect this, I feel very privileged and honored, thank you,” he added.

Washington Wizards: Daniel Gafford has been exceptional than promoted

 Washington Wizards: Daniel Gafford has been exceptional than promoted 





Going into the exchange cutoff time, the Washington Wizards were not expected to be huge purchasers, on the off chance that they were even purchasers by any means. A few fans and scholars (counting myself) anticipated that they should sit tight totally and travel through the cutoff time with an unaltered list. 





In any case, as we probably are aware this group is acceptable at holding their assets away from plain view. Without further ado before the cutoff time, the Wizards conveyed Troy Earthy colored Jr. also, Moritz Wagner in return for Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchinson as a component of a three group exchange with the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls.





When the trade went down, I don’t think a lot of people looked at this as some major move for either side. Certainly not a needle-moving pick on par with Aaron Gordon to the Denver Nuggets or Lou Williams to the Atlanta Hawks. This one looked more like swap two intriguing young prospects (Brown and Gafford) who would benefit from a change of scenery as opposed to the move that would put any of these teams over the edge.

After making the move at the trade deadline to bring in Daniel Gafford, the Washington Wizards are realizing he provides production that this team has desperately needed.





The move that brought Gafford and Hutchison to Washington is the type of move that has become familiar during the Tommy Sheppard era; the Wizards got two young, relatively cheap players on the fringes of their current roster. In D.C., they’re both getting a second chance. Daniel Gafford is definitely making the most of a new situation, and boy are the Wizards reaping the benefits.
