People Walk Off Adam Sandler's Movie Set!


We know that people LOVE celebrities, but apparently we love them more than the environment! That's because from 2013 to 2014 a study was done by the Project for Improved Environmental Coverage. What was discovered from that study? How about the fact that six of the ten broad environmental topics tracked were less visible than just one celebrity, Beyonce Knowles! To put things into perspective, stories mentioning Beyoncé were more than 11 times more common than stories mentioning deforestation and more than five times more common than stories mentioning ocean health! Queen Beyonce prevails!

SNL is closing out their 40th anniversary season with a bang! That bang is three star studded shows. Listen to this! On May 2nd we're going to get Scarlett Johansson with Wiz Khalifa. On May 9th – Reese Witherspoon with Florence + the Machine. Then on May 16th, SNL is going to finish everything off with Louis C.K. and Rihanna! Bring it on! I'm so ready! I don't even know which show I'm the most excited about!

Get excited if you're a Fifty Shades of Grey fan! This is freak out worthy! We have the release date for the anticipated sequel Fifty Shades Darker AND the release date for the third installment, Fifty Shades Freed. The only bad news is that we have to wait a while! Fifty Shades Darker has a February 10th, 2017 release date. Fifty Shades Freed is looking at a February 9th, 2018 release date. So a two year wait. But, at least we know the two other movies are coming!

Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans might be the superheroes we've all come to love in the Avengers movies, but people are angry at them today. That's because they made sexist comments about Scarlett Johansson's character, Black Widow. They said she would get with either of their characters, to put it lightly. Now fans are saying Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner don't respect women. They've both released statements. Chris Evans said, "We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize." Jeremy Renner said, "I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour." Well there you have it!

It's official! These movies just aren't going to stop! Universal Studios is currently working on Fast and Furious 8. Vin Diesel made the announcement himself during CinemaCon and said, "We're gonna make the best movie you've ever seen." I thought Fast and Furious 7 that just came out was supposed to be the best movie we've ever seen? This new movie is expected to come out on April 14th, 2017. I guess that's what happens when the latest movie breaks records! More money, more movies!

The rich keep getting richer! So who's the richest music artist from the U.K. or Ireland? Once again that title goes to Paul McCartney! The ex-Beatles star is worth about $1.1 billion. Last year, Paul McCartney and his wife were worth 710 million pounds, which also placed them at #1 on the Rich List. U2 was next on the list and is worth around $650 million. After U2 was Elton John, who is worth around $405 million.

Adam Sandler might want to think about who he invites to get involved in his film projects. Approximately a dozen Native actors and actresses, as well as the Native cultural advisor, left the set of Adam Sandler's newest film production, The Ridiculous Six, after the script repeatedly insulted them. Apparently the script insulted native women, elders and grossly misrepresented their culture. The people who walked off the set knew that the movie was a comedy but were told it wouldn't be racist, which wasn't the case. They asked to speak with Adam Sandler and instead they spoke to the producers who said 'It's in the script and we are not going to change it.' Adam Sandler and no one from Happy Madison Productions responded to requests for comment.

Have Blacks Abandoned Baseball?

Chris Rock did a guest spot on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, part of the show's 20th anniversary celebration.

His topic: why blacks have abandoned baseball.

He talks about growing up a baseball fan, when 20% of the players in Major League Baseball were black. Now, that number has dwindled, according to Chris, to about 8%.

But it's not about being black, it's about being a baseball fan.

Check out the promo, and if you like what you see, you can watch the whole episode here - it's uncensored, so be careful where you watch it or how loud the audio is...

Don't Push Iron Man!

Robert Downey Jr. was sitting down for a series of interviews about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Things are okay for the first four minutes, and then they start to go off the track when the reporter starts asking about RDJ's personal life.

You can tell he's very uncomfortable talking about his time in prison and struggling with addiction - "Are we promoting a movie?" RDJ asked.

The reporter refused to pick up on that cue and kept dwelling on the personal aspects.

Finally, RDJ got upset enough to walk out. And watch the reporter. He doesn't get why...

Making FLOTUS's Day

How's this for a nice way for Michelle Obama to start her day?

The First Lady was entertaining some children of White House Staffers as part of Bring Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day.

One young lady asked Mrs. O who old she was, and when she answered, "51," the girl made a face.

Turns out she thought Mrs. O was "too young" to be 51.

Guess who got a big hug?

How Do You Write "Uh Oh" in Arabic?

On Tuesday, Lindsay Lohan posted an inspirational message to Instagram.

On the bottom line, it read "You're beautiful." Above it were some Arabic characters, which everyone took to mean the same thing as the English phrase.

Not so much, according to experts. Lindsay had actually written, "You're an ass" in Arabic.

Yesterday, she posted this picture of a pocketbook, and referenced the now-deleted message, saying it was an inside joke with a friend.

"So, was already known what it was."

I'm not buying it. How about you?

Chewing with Chewie

For some reason, people are taking the #TwizzlerChallenge to help raise autism awareness.

I don't see the correlation, but if it helps, who am I to question it.

You take a Twizzler in your mouth, and place the other end of the Twizzler in your partner's mouth, and chew on it like the two dogs chewing on a strand of spaghetti in Lady & the Tramp.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Autism Awareness Month at the beginning of April by taking the challenge with Rihanna.

And then he challenged Star Wars: A Force Awakens director JJ Abrams to take the challenge - with the biggest hairiest hero of them all, Chewbacca.

The other night, the pair stepped up. Check out the video - and who they passed the challenge to...

It's Dropping Trou Coming Around the Post...

Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.

Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.

This stuff you can't make up.

And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.

This time, his pants stayed fully on.

Chris Pratt Crushed by a Noahsaurus

Chris Pratt visited the Ellen show this week and agreed to play a game of "Dino Right, Dino Wrong" against Ellen's little buddy, Noah Ritter.

It was a trivia game about dinosaurs, and given that Chris just wrapped up Jurassic World, you'd expect him to have the edge.

Think again.

This kid Noah is good. Check out the competition.
