Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is scheduled for release Friday, June 30.
Photos have emerged of Jon Hamm’s recent coffee run in Los Angeles–and it appears that he left his underwear at home for the excursion. The 46-year-old Mad Men star wore a white shirt, dark green jacket and khaki pants that showed off an impressive bulge in the crotch area. This isn’t the first-time Jon has been spotted without underwear. There are plenty of pics out there that showcase his er, impressive anatomy. Jon himself is aware of the attention his manhood gets and admitted back in 2016, “As rumors go, it’s not the worst.”
Charlie Hunnam has opened up about his unlikely bromance with Marilyn Manson. “We met on Sons of Anarchy–Manson came in and did five or six episodes and we just became pals,” he told a reporter at the premiere of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. “We’re an unlikely duo, but we love each other.” Marilyn, who also attended the event to support his buddy, added, “We are strangely like brothers. I don’t have a lot of close men friends at my round table, so to speak. I don’t even have a table, but Charlie and I always cook food for each other.” In fact, the two are such good friends that they almost showed up at the King Arthur premiere in matching outfits. “I almost wore that suit,” Charlie declared. “We would have looked like a couple of a**holes.”
Jessica Simpson has a simple answer to where she gets her body confidence. She gets it from sex. That said, Jessica refuses to share details about her and husband Eric Johnson’s bedroom antics. She joked about it in a recent interview saying, “I can’t give that away or you’ll all have a sexy marriage like me.” Jessica also credits a “push-up bra” for giving her great boobs, “family” for her toned legs and “Texas” for her gorgeous hair.
Where in the world is Kanye West? According to my source, Kanye has been holed up atop a Wyoming mountain for two weeks to work on his next album in seclusion. The news follows Kanye deleting his Twitter and Instagram accounts over the weekend; it also explains why he was absent from the Met Gala last Monday, which his wife Kim Kardashian attended by herself. Meanwhile, Consequence of Sound notes that the last time Kanye went AWOL was following his Taylor Swift drama at the VMAs in 2009. After hiding out in Hawaii for several months, he returned with what some consider to be his best album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Mother’s Day is Sunday, so “People” magazine collected quotes from 10 celebrities, sharing wisdom they received from their moms. Here they are:
Chris Hemsworth: “Just have fun. You love acting, right? Good, go and act. Go and have fun and if it doesn’t work out, you can come back home.”
Zooey Deschanel: “Wear lipstick.”
Kristin Chenoweth: “‘Don’t ever rely on a man for money. Make your own way.’ So I did. And now I’m single.”
Meghan Trainor: “My mama always reminds me to be happy and to take a step back and look at everything. Because with this crazy life, you can easily get overwhelmed.”
Shannen Doherty: “You can do anything, anything that you put your mind to. Just give it 100 percent and go for it.”
Tia Mowry: “Never feel bad about who you are. And she would always say, ‘If they don’t like you, then it’s their loss.'”
Uzo Aduba from “Orange is the New Black”: “When I first moved to New York, she dropped me off at the train and she turned off the car, and she said, ‘Uzo. Just work hard. I don’t care what you do, as long as you work hard.
“‘I never heard of ‘nothing’ come from hard work. I don’t know what will come, but something will come.'”
Kate Hudson: “What makes mom the best is that she never put any expectations too high on the kids. She just wanted us to be doing the things that made us happy, as long as we were working hard, but we never had to live up to something.”
Jim Parsons from “The Big Bang Theory”: “She’d just look in the mirror and say ‘Well, I did the best I could do today.’ The message was, ‘Don’t feel bad about how you look.'”
Matthew Morrison from “Glee”: “Try to not swear much, and always practice good hygiene.”
Coming up with Josie and the City, American Idol is coming back! Details at 8:40.
There was a time when Charlie Sheen was making $1.8 million per episode on “Two and a Half Men”. But now it’s come to this . . . Charlie was at the Wizard World convention in Minneapolis this past weekend, signing autographs for 60 bucks a pop. Fellow guests included Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork from the Monkees, and elderly “Star Trek” minx Nichelle Nichols.
Is Charlie really that desperate? Who knows. But he stopped making big money years ago . . . and he had to pay out millions to past sexual partners when he revealed he was HIV-positive.
Whatever the case, a source says Charlie stayed sober, and seemed to have a great time . . . and he’s doing more conventions this summer.
One more interesting note: A lot of people asked him to sign baseballs, because of “Major League”. But he stopped doing it after a while because they’re too hard to sign.
The rumours were true: ABC is bringing “American Idol” back . . . just 13 months after it ended its 15-year run on Fox. There aren’t many details yet, but here’s what we know . . .
In a statement, an ABC exec said, “America, get ready for the return of a bigger, bolder, and better-than-ever ‘Idol’.” He also took a jab at Fox by saying that it’s, quote, “a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon.”
But their goal is to make the show cheaper to produce. The main reason Fox canceled it was because it got way too expensive, especially considering its declining ratings.
I hear that they’re going to save some money by having all the auditions at Disney World in Orlando. Disney owns ABC so that will be both cheaper than traveling around the country, and it’ll be some nice cross-promotion.
And there’s talk that they could also open up auditions on the West Coast at Disneyland in Anaheim.
There’s no word on the judges, but they might make some announcements next week at the ‘upfronts,’ where the networks all reveal their new shows for next season.
It also seems like Ryan Seacrest is a given to return as host, but even if he wants to do it and has the time . . . he’d have to come at the right price.
At the end of “Idol’s” run, he was making more than $15 million a season, and if ABC’s cutting costs, they might not be willing to spend that much.
Of course, Brian Dunkleman could probably be had for $15-an-hour.
And before you get too “excited” about any of this, remember, “Idol” was running on fumes at the end. Can you name the last three “Idol” winners? (They were Caleb Johnson, Nick Fradiani, and Trent Harmon.)
2018 will mark a return to New York City for the Grammy Awards, as organizers announced Tuesday that next year’s ceremony will take place at Madison Square Garden. It’ll mark the first time the Grammys have left L.A. since 2003. “We’ve been in L.A. for many years; we used to bounce back and forth from time to time,” said Recording Academy president Neil Portnow. “With the East Coast being the home for half the membership of the Academy…and given that this is an anniversary year for us, it’s a special chance to celebrate.” The 2018 Grammys will mark the awards’ 60th anniversary. It will take place on January 28, 2018, and will be broadcast on CBS for the 46th consecutive year.
