    Mexican actress Kate del Castillo has bluntly revealed that during the filming for her documentary 'The Day I Met El Chapo' she had sex with Sean Penn. 'I never fell for him, we had sex. Sorry but we are both single and something was going on but that was it, it was business' she said during her interview on Good Morning America promoting her film out on Netflix Friday. The actress also says people just assumed she had sex with El Chapo, however in her interview she insinuates that that did not happen, adding that she feared being 'raped' by...
  • Three members of the southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd die in a Mississippi plane crash

    10/20/2017 7:06:42 AM PDT · by Kid Shelleen · 75 replies
    In the summer of 1977, members of the rock band Aerosmith inspected an airplane they were considering chartering for their upcoming tour—a Convair 240 operated out of Addison, Texas. Concerns over the flight crew led Aerosmith to look elsewhere—a decision that saved one band but doomed another. The aircraft in question was instead chartered by the band Lynyrd Skynyrd, who were just setting out that autumn on a national tour that promised to be their biggest to date. On this day in 1977, however, during a flight from Greenville, South Carolina, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s tour plane crashed...

    The Pussycat Dolls are now denying claims by former member Kaya Jones that the all-girl musical act operated like a “prostitution ring” and victimized young women. In a series of recent tweets, Ms. Jones, an outspoken conservative and President Trump supporter, joined the chorus of women who have come forward alleging rampant sexual harassment and misconduct in the entertainment industry. “My truth.I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring.Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $,” the 33-year-old pop singer wrote. “How bad was it?people ask-bad enough...

  • Lana Del Rey Sang About Harvey Weinstein in 2012

    New York Post ^ | October 17, 2017 | Emily Smith
    Lana Del Rey’s 2012 track “Cola” about older men is about Harvey Weinstein, sources tell us. “Cola” features the lyrics: “I got a taste for men who are older. It’s always been, so it’s no surprise,” and was originally followed by the line, “Harvey’s in the sky with diamonds and he’s making me crazy. All he wants to do is party with his pretty baby.” Plus, “I know your wife, and she wouldn’t mind.” We’re told the song is ironic. (She wasn’t into Weinstein at all.) An entertainment-industry source tells Page Six that Del Rey wrote the track after Weinstein...

  • ‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Fall To Season Low As Titans Break Colts’ Streak

    It felt like a little bit of history was being made on Monday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans finally snapped their streak of 11 consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts. However, as social media sparked with ESPN not showing the playing of the national anthem, another type of history was also being made: Last night’s primetime broadcast of the Titans’ 36-22 victory stumbled to a season low with a 6.1 in metered market results. In a season stained by overall ratings declines and political controversy, that NFL Week 6 rating is down 13% from the early numbers of the...

    One of the largest video game industry conferences currently taking place in Poland has become subject to a controversy after its social media manager—and game developer—made a gaffe on Twitter. Her crime? Using the word “pretty” to describe other women. Her innocuous tweet was met with immediate fury from transgender game developers like No Man’s Sky’s Innes McKendrick, who assumed Wiznerowicz’s gender, and demanded that she “shut the hell up and listens to them.”

    Hi, Linda. It has been 40 years since the release of your hugely successful album Simple Dreams (1). Do you have happy memories of it? Well, I don’t ever listen to my stuff once I’ve finished it, and I don’t really know what’s on it. I’m not saying it’s a bad record, I’m just saying I can’t remember it. When I listen to all my old stuff, I tend to be horrified. What do you feel is horrifying about your old stuff? I feel as if I really started learning how to sing in around 1980. I sang in an...

Trump-loving duo Diamond and Silk hilariously respond to Eminem's freestyle smackdown of the President Rapper Eminem was the talk of the town after he slammed President Donald Trump during an epic freestyle at the BET Hip Hop Awards. And Trump-loving duo Diamond and Silk were not fans of his rhymes deciding on Wednesday to drop a humorous clap back of their own. The video opens with very brief clips of Eminem's verse before Diamond and Silk saunter on screen with the latter holding a bag of peanut M&Ms.

    One hundred years ago today - October 15th 1917 - a man called Alan Livingston was born in McDonald, Pennsylvania. You probably don't know his name, and, if you think you know your songwriters, you may be confusing him with his older brother Jay Livingston, who with Ray Evans wrote "Que Sera Sera", "Mona Lisa", "Buttons and Bows" and the urban Christmas song "Silver Bells". Jay's kid brother doesn't have a song catalogue like that, but one way or another we owe a lot of the late 20th century's best known music to him. For one, Alan Livingston was central...
