Why Ed Sheeran's Tour Is Going To Be Different This Time Around
Nick Cannon is quitting his job! He’s done with “America’s Got Talent,” and it’s all over a joke! NBC threatened to fire Nick Cannon over a racial joke that he made in a new comedy special. Nick Cannon joked that he was losing “points” by hosting the reality competition show. NBC executives took offense to the whole thing and felt that Nick Cannon breached his contract by saying it. So after Nick Cannon learned that there was talk of letting him go, he got on Instagram and announced that he's qutting the show! See what he had to say below!
I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous mindset. After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke. This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my "team" that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment. Recently many of my mentors have cautioned me that soon "The System" would come down on me because I was speaking too many truths and being to loud about it. I had no idea that it all would hit so close to home. I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn't have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity. I have loved hosting AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons, watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure to work with but my soul won't allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn't the first time executives have attempted to "put me in my place" for so called unruly actions. I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head. It's never been about the money for me, what is difficult to walk away from is the fans, the people who love me on the show. This hurts tremendously. I felt like I was apart of the fabric of our great nation every summer, representing every culture, age, gender, and demographic. Now for the rug to be pulled from underneath me and to be publicly reprimanded and ridiculed over a joke about my own race is completely wrong... Continued on My FACEBOOK

Hugh Jackman still wants to make sure you got his message that it’s very important to wear sunscreen? You may not remember this, but Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer on his nose several times. The first time was back in 2013. This week, he got on Instagram and wrote, “Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent checks & amazing doctors, all’s well.” This will be his fifth procedure on his nose and Hugh Jackman wrote, “#wearsunscreen.”

Kylie Jenner is in trouble again for her makeup line! This time, her eye kits are the source of the problem. People have filed complaints about the smell and the fact that it causes chemical-induced headaches, claiming that the kits smelled of "chemicals and glue" when they were opened. Customers described the odor as "spray paint" or "paint thinner," and one person even said that it stunk so bad she had to put the whole package outside her house. Kylie Cosmetics launched an investigation immediately and found out that an adhesive in the packaging was causing the smell but they swear it’s safe to use. Insert your smelly Kardashian jokes here…
It’s a sad time for the Cruise family. Tom Cruise’s mother, Mary Lee South, passed away in her sleep last week. Marry Lee South, a former special education teacher, was the reason why Tom Cruise decided to pursue an acting career. A service was already held for her. Mary Lee South was 80 years old. Thoughts and prayers out to the Cruise family!
Ed Sheeran is doing things differently this time around when he goes on his world tour for his upcoming album. This time, Ed Sheeran says that he'll actually spend time checking out the cities where he's performing, and not waste time sleeping off the previous night's drinking fest! He said, "I'm gonna go out and see the country more when I'm touring it. So I'm gonna go out and see the cities everyday, rather than sleeping on the bus. 'Cause usually on the last tour, I was just hung over all the time, so I'd go out, then sleep all day, play a gig, go out and then sleep all day. So this time, I'm gonna party less and travel more." I like this new Ed! Here him talk about it below!
