When Bruno Mars hit the FedEx Forum’s stage on Friday night it was his first concert ever in Memphis! He even said that he’s been trying FOREVER to get here and play for us all! Well, that explains why he and his hooligans showed up a day early, getting here on Thursday and were able to get some sight-seeing in! They visited Graceland and some other places that his trombone player and Memphis native Kameron Whalum picked. like Ching’s Hot Wings on Getwell and his old job at the Nike factory store! Then on Friday afternoon, Bruno Mars had a group of young patients from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital visit during his sound check! He played them some of his music, a little bit of Elvis, and even took their requests and played stuff that they wanted to hear! HOW CUTE!
Justin Bieber is repenting! He looked to God during the controversy surrounding his racist videos and washed away his sins with a baptism performed in a bathroom. Pastor Carl Lentz, who works with Justin Bieber in NYC said the Biebs spent a week doing intense Bible study. Not only did he study Bible passages and attend services but he also had an actual baptism performed in the bathtub of one his friend’s house. They did it at a house so his cover wouldn’t be blown. So now, the Biebs has a clean slate! Let’s see if the public feels that way!
No one saw this coming! Melanie Griffith has filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas. The reason… irreconcilable differences after 18 years of marriage. Melanie Griffith is asking for child support and physical and joint legal custody. But their kid turns 18 in September so it doesn’t really matter. Of course, Melanie Griffith is also asking for spousal support. Dividing property should be fun though because they have a lot of real estate, both in the U.S. and Spain. This is Melanie Griffith's fourth divorce and Antonio Banderas’ second, so they should be pros!
Tracy Morgan is in critical condition and fighting for his life this morning after being involved in a horrible car accident that involved six cars over the weekend in New Jersey (Two tractor-trailers, two cars, an SUV and a limo bus)! Tracy Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike heading home after a standup gig when the limo bus was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer owned by Walmart and overturned. One person in the limo was killed instantly, comedian Jimmy Mack McNair. Three other people, including Tracy Morgan, were airlifted to a hospital close by and are in critical condition. One of those people that is critically injured is Tracy Morgan’s opening act, Ardie Fuqua. The cause of the wreck is still not known, but a rep for Walmart says that the driver has been suspended pending the police investigation's outcome and that they’ll pay the expenses for the victims in the crash if their driver is found at fault. Our prayers are definitely with Tracy Morgan and everyone else injured today. As of this moment, Tracy Morgan has gone through surgery for broken bones and is still in critical condition but has been more responsive today. Let’s hope they get through this!
Keith Urban is thanking Nicole Kidman today. His wife of eight years was his rock when he started to deal with his substance abuse problems. As a matter of fact, Keith Urban says that Nicole Kidman SAVED HIM. Just months after he said "I do" to Nicole Kidman, that’s when Keith Urban checked himself into rehab. He said, "I was very, very blessed to have Nic call an intervention on me. I had a tight group of friends around me for the intervention… Meeting Nic and falling in love with Nic and starting a relationship with Nic became — I realize now in hindsight — my sobriety. That was how I was able to keep it together." Throughout it all, their marriage has stayed strong. See, women keep you grounded!
Memphis Grizzlies player James Johnson has a court date this morning. He was arrested Friday night on a charge of domestic assault causing bodily harm. He had a domestic dispute with his wife as they were leaving Beale Street at around two in the morning. She called the police at their home and said that he "hit her in the face and choked her.” James Johnson’s wife is also saying that he punched a hole in their bathroom door where she was waiting for the cops to show up and she was holding their child. James Johnson even took their baby before running away from the scene. He eventually came back and was taken to jail. The Grizzlies released a brief statement on Saturday afternoon saying they are getting all the information they need to get about the incident and have no further comment at this time.
Oh, and here's Chris Daughtry refusing to be patriotic...
