Willie Nelson has quit smoking weed

Snoop Dogg, Seth Rogan, Willie Nelson.  You can only think of pot when you think of those dudes. At least that’s what my mind goes to.   On the Rushmore of weed smoking, those are the heads.  Till now.

Willie Nelson is off the pot.

“I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful,” he told reporters recently.

“I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever,” he said. “And that almost killed me.”

“I don’t smoke anymore – take better care of myself,” Nelson said.

His health issues have generated rumors suggesting that he is near death.

“I don’t give a (expletive deleted) I’m here, I’m glad to be here,” and with a smile added “I’m lucky to be here.”

The Weeknd buys massive LA penthouse

Musician The Weeknd has been pretty busy getting singles together to drop in time for the holidays, but he made time in his busy schedule to buy a condo that spans the entire 18th floor of The Beverly West building.

A whopping 8,215 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2 1/2 baths. 11+ foot high ceilings, walls sheathed in locally fabricated walnut paneling, imported natural stone floor tiles almost the exact color of sealskin and white oak floorboards stained a dark, ashy-brown. With gigantic expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows that provide knee-buckling 360-degree city, mountain and ocean views.

Categories: celebrities

He’s been treated for exhaustion and dehydration at a Los Angeles hospital this week, so French Montana was no doubt thankful that he has recovered sufficiently for doctors to allow him to leave the ICU on Thursday.

The rapper, 35, updated his fans by sharing a photo of himself in which he is seen half dressed with monitors still attached to his chest and iv ports in his arms after removing his hospital gown.

In the caption alongside the photo, the recording artist – whose real name is Karim Kharbouch – thanked everyone ‘for all of the prayers, love and support.’

‘I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time!!!’ he wrote.

Montana is still in the hospital and being monitored after his medical emergency which occurred after he had visited four countries in less than a week.

Johnny Depp producing musical about Michael Jackson

Johnny Depp producing musical about Michael Jackson

I hear Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson told from the perspective of the Michaels sequined glove.  You didn’t read that wrong.

And you wonder why Johnny’s broke?

The wild show — “For the Love of a Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson, as told by his Glove” by Julien Nitzberg — debuts Jan. 25 in LA. It’s described as a “look into the strange forces that shaped Michael and the scandals that bedeviled his reputation” as narrated by a talking, singing glove.

Actors star with life-size puppets of the Jackson 5, Donny Osmond, Emmanuel Lewis, Corey Feldman and Bubbles the Chimp. Nitzberg first came up with the concept 17 years ago.

“I’m known for writing a lot of biopics,” he said. “A major TV network wanted me to write a [Jackson] movie … but the question came up [about] how to deal with the child-abuse allegations.” When the network and Nitzberg disagreed, “I said, how’s this? Everything MJ has been accused of has actually been caused by his glove, which is actually an alien from outer space [and] feeds on virgin boy blood. They laughed and said, can you do the normal version?” But, “It was morally kind of repugnant to me to do … I turned down a really big paycheck.” He thought, “I’m going to go back to this … and do this as a musical.” But, “we just couldn’t get the financing.”

Depp’s company Infinitum Nihil, headed by CEO Sam Sarkar, got involved after Nitzberg worked on developing a biopic on 1960s one-hit wonder Tiny Tim to star John Turturro.

“It ended up never getting made, but I developed a very good relationship with them,” Nitzberg recalled. When he pitched other ideas, an exec asked, “What else are you working on?” The writer said of his Jacko satire, “I’m doing this theater piece you probably aren’t interested in.” It’s just the latest Jacko project in the wake of HBO’s “Leaving Neverland” documentary. A sanctioned musical, “MJ,” heads to Broadway next year.

Wilco frontman’s Chicago home shot up Tuesday night

How terrifying!!  A shooter opened fire on Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy’s Chicago home — spraying it with bullets and leaving behind a pile of shell casings, according to a report Wednesday.

The 52-year-old jam band rocker and his family awoke to the sound of gunfire around 2 a.m. Tuesday and discovered the gunman had blasted his balcony door, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

His wife, Susan Miller-Tweedy, said she heard up to 10 gunshots!

“You know how every time you hear loud pops you think … was that fireworks or gunshots? Well, when it’s really gunfire there is zero question about it,” Miller-Tweedy wrote on Facebook.

“A bullet went through the storm door to our balcony and lodged in the wooden door,” she said. “In the light of day today [Tuesday], Jeff found seven shell casings outside.”

Jay Z suing over children’s book

Jay Z suing over children’s book

I have to start by saying I think this book, by Australian retailer Little Homie, is amazing.  I love it. But laws are laws.

Jay Z claims the firm has breached his intellectual property, including in a children’s book titled AB to Jay-Z.

The book draws on lyrics from his hit song 99 Problems.

An advertisement for AB to Jay-Z reads: “If you’re having alphabet problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but my ABC’s ain’t one!”

The song lyrics are also referenced on the back cover of the book, which teaches letters by referring to the names of other famous rappers including Snoop Dogg and Biggie Smalls.

The Little Homie did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Mr Carter filed the lawsuit with the Federal Court of Australia on November 22nd.

It claims the company traded on his likeness and infringed the copyright of the lyrics to 99 Problems, according to the Australian newspaper The Age.  Which it does. But come on. It’s FOR KIDS! TO LEARN!

I say Jay needs to back off this one? Agreed?

Justin Timberlake May Have Cheated on Jessica Biel with Alisha Wainwright

Justin Timberlake May Have Cheated on Jessica Biel with Alisha Wainwright

Often referred to as one of Hollywood’s CELEBRITY POWER COUPLE , Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel may be finally cracking to the pressure of being rich, dialled in, super famous, 40 year olds, because Justin Timberlake was spotted holding hands without his wedding ring and rubbing up at the OLD ABSYNTHE HOUSE in New Orleans with one of his co-stars, named Alisha Wainwright.

I have always hated Jessica Biel. I thought she was an overrated bootleg actress. I figured she was lucky enough to get on what I guess was a hit show at the time. That role led to a sexualized shoot in Details Magazine (RIP) that went viral and the rest is history. She became a “hot thing”, at least hot enough to lure in Justin Timberlake.

I always just assumed that she was an N’Sync fan who pretended she was not an N’Sync fan because she doesn’t want to blow her cover to get with Justin Timberlake, just locked it in.

They’ve been together forever and as far as I’m concerned there is no way that he hasn’t been banging other women throughout their relationship. They linked up early on in his solo career and he toured a lot when he was at his peak. I just assumed she was the “this life is good, we have a good situation, we are friends, there is a bond, turn a blind eye to his banging other women”, but I also assumed he was gay. So my assumptions are clearly not factual. I just think every relationship is different and when you factor in rich and celebrity it can’t be conventional by default

The “Homewrecker” who I am sure isn’t an official homewrecker, who are we to decide if Biel and Timberlake have a conventional or monogamous relationship is named Alisha Wainwright.

She is 30 years old, currently co-starring with Timberlake in something called PALMER. She is best known for a show called “Raising Dion” that I’ve never heard of but more importantly, she’s definitely found her way to get her name on the map.
