  • 6:49 am Friday, July 21st, 2017 by Estee

Ever since ABC announced that they were bringing back “American Idol”, it seemed inevitable that Ryan Seacrest would be back as the host.

Ryan finally made it official on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” yesterday.

Ryan compared it to being in a 15-year relationship . . . breaking up . . . and then getting back together.

TMZ claims Ryan was negotiating with the show for three months, because he wanted $10 to $15 million, plus an executive producer credit.  Supposedly, he did NOT get the credit, and his pay will be closer to $10 mil.

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was found dead yesterday morning, at his home in L.A.  It looks like he committed suicide by hanging himself in his bedroom either earlier that morning. He was just 41.

His body was discovered by a housekeeper at around 9:00 A.M.  There aren’t any further details on the scene . . . and it’s unclear if there was a suicide note.

His death came as a shock to everyone.  He’d just arrived back in L.A. on Wednesday, after spending some time in Arizona with his wife, Talinda.  They’ve been married for 11 years.

He was married once before . . [More]

Kanye West Does a Good Deed for Fan After Injury

  • 7:52 am Thursday, July 20th, 2017 by Estee

Kanye West heard about a fan who suffered a spinal cord injury five years ago, and was paralyzed from the shoulders down.  Doctors said he’d never walk again, but he’s worked hard, and has been able to take steps with a walker.

So Kanye sent him some custom white Yeezy Boosts, along with a note: “You show the world anything is possible.”

Madame Tussauds unveiled a new Beyonce statue, and the Internet lit up with RAGE.

  • 7:48 am Thursday, July 20th, 2017 by Estee

In a photo of the wax figure that went viral, the skin is way too light, and the face doesn’t even look like Beyoncé.  People have been comparing it to Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Shakira, or even a “poor man’s Mariah Carey.”

Madame Tussauds issued a statement saying the image going around was distorted by, “lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography.”

They also released a photo that supposedly depicts the statue more accurately.  But frankly, it doesn’t look any better.  In fact, it probably looks MORE like Britney or Shakira.
