Adam Levine promises a Super Bowl half-time show ‘message’

Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine has responded to critics who urged the band to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick by not to performing at Super Bowl LIII, with the singer hinting that the halftime show will include a social message.  

‘I’m not in the right profession if I can’t handle a little bit of controversy. It is what it is, we expected it,’ Levine said in an interview on Thursday with Entertainment Tonight, three days ahead of the big game in Atlanta.

‘We’d like to move on with it, and like I said earlier, speak though the music,’ Levine said of the band’s plans for Sunday’s championship game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.

Maroon 5 came under scrutiny when a petition signed by more than 113,000 fans demanded that they withdraw from performing at the Super Bowl to support Kaepernick and other players who kneel during the national anthem.  It should be interesting to see.

Nick Cannon temporarily taking over ‘The Wendy Williams Show’

“The Wendy Williams Show” is getting a temporary new host.

Nick Cannon will take over the show on Feb. 4, Feb. 5 and Feb. 6. He’ll be continuing Wendy Williams‘ signature segment, “Hot Topics.”

Earlier this month, Williams’ family announced that she was still recovering from her fractured shoulder and also had to be hospitalized as a result of symptoms from her Graves’ disease.

“Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being,” the statement read.

A source told Page Six at the time, “Staff at [Williams’] show are eager to get back to work. We are all hoping she is well. The mood at the set is good … We just want Wendy to get better.”

Distributor and producer Debmar-Mercury previously announced that the show would feature a variety of hosts starting the week of Jan. 28.

Williams, 54, fractured her shoulder in December and then worried fans when she slurred her words on-air. She later apologized and blamed the painkillers she was taking to treat her fracture.

Gwyneth Paltrow is sued for $3.1M for leaving ski crash victim

A Utah doctor has filed a lawsuit accusing Gwyneth Paltrow of seriously injuring him in a ‘hit-and-run’ crash at a swank Park City ski resort in 2016, and is demanding damages in excess of $3.1 million.

Sanderson says in the complaint that neither Paltrow or the instructor alerted ski patrol after abandoning him, and he was left stranded and alone with brain damage and four broken ribs on the side of the mountain.

Reps for Paltrow dismissed the filing as being ‘without merit’ and said their client expects to be ‘vindicated’ in the case.

Her lawyers meanwhile have stated that Paltrow was downhill at the time of the crash, meaning that she had the right of way.

A Utah doctor has filed a lawsuit accusing Gwyneth Paltrow of seriously injuring him in a ‘hit-and-run’ crash at a swank Park City ski resort in 2016, and is demanding damages in excess of $3.1 million.

Optometrist Terry Sanderson, 72, says in a complaint that was filed on Tuesday that Paltrow was skiing with an instructor at Deer Valley when she lost control and slammed into him from behind.

‘I heard this hysterical scream and instantaneous I got hit in the back,’ said Sanderson at a press conference on Tuesday.

Paltrow then proceeded to get up and ski away according to the legal filing, without checking on Sanderson or offering any assistance to the injured man.

Soon after the GOOP guru fled the scene, Sanderson claims that her instructor came over and informed the injured man that the incident was his fault and then also skied off.

Sanderson says in the complaint that neither Paltrow or the instructor alerted ski patrol after abandoning him, and he was left stranded and alone with brain damage and four broken ribs on the side of the mountain.

Reps for Paltrow dismissed the filing as being ‘without merit’ and said their client expects to be ‘vindicated’ in the case.

Her lawyers meanwhile have stated that Paltrow was downhill at the time of the crash, meaning that she had the right of way.  As if that matters.

New allegations of Bryan Singer: Sex with young boys

New allegations of Bryan Singer: Sex with young boys

Bryan Singer, the director of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” is facing new allegations published in the Atlantic on Wednesday that he engaged in sexual misconduct with underage boys.

In the report, four men allege that Singer had sexual encounters with them when they were teenagers in the late 1990s. One of the men, Victor Valdovinos, says he was a 13-year-old extra on the set of “Apt Pupil” when Singer fondled his genitals.

The three other accusers are identified in the story by pseudonyms. One, identified in the story as Andy, says that he had sex with Singer when he was 15. Another man, identified as Eric, says he was 17 when he began having sex with the director. Singer would have been 31 at the time. The third man, Ben, alleges that he and Singer had oral sex when he was 17 or 18.

“He would stick his hands down your pants without consent,” the man told the Atlantic. “He was predatory in that he would ply people with alcohol and drugs and then have sex with them.”

Singer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, denied to the magazine that Singer had ever had sex with underage boys, and disputed various details of the accusers’ accounts.

Singer was fired two weeks before the end of production on “Bohemian Rhapsody” in December 2017. The film received five Academy Award nominations on Tuesday, including best picture and best actor for Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Singer remains the credited director, but was not nominated. He is next scheduled to direct “Red Sonja” for Millennium Films.

The authors of the Atlantic article, Alex French and Maximillian Potter, spoke to 50 sources over the course of a 12-month investigation. French and Potter are both affiliated with Esquire, French as a writer at large and Potter as the editor at large. The article was initially expected to appear in that magazine.

On Oct. 15, Singer posted on Instagram that Esquire was looking to write a negative article about him.

“In today’s climate where people’s careers are being harmed by mere accusations, what Esquire is attempting to do is a reckless disregard for the truth, making assumptions that are fictional and irresponsible,” Singer wrote.

In April 2014, Michael Egan sued Singer, alleging that the director had raped him several times in Hawaii in 1999, when Egan was 17. That case was dropped several months later, after discrepancies emerged in Egan’s story.

Cesar Sanchez-Guzman sued Singer in December 2017, claiming that Singer raped him on a yacht in 2003. Singer has denied the allegation, and the case is still pending.

“The industry will brush things under the rug and pretend nothing happened,” Sanchez-Guzman told the magazine. “Most people don’t see the truth.”
