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.

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.
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.
