Adele tells crowd at show 'I don't know if I will ever tour again'

Mar 27, 2017 12

Adele said she may be done touring during a rainy New Zealand show.

“I don’t know if I will ever tour again,” she said, according to News.com.au. “The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour.”

Rumors have swirled that this will be Adele’s final tour since back in September.

“Touring isn’t something I’m good at — applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable,” she told the crowd at her Sunday show in Auckland.

Adele performed in a poncho as the rain caused technical issues during her concert, News.com.au reports.

“I just spent two hours in hair and makeup for nothing” she joked to the crowd. “Who wants to make a bet with me I’ll fall over at some stage — or get electrocuted by my microphone?”

Adele wraps her months-long tour in London on July 2.
 

Entertainers who have joked about harming Trump

Mar 27, 2017 10

Snoop Dogg released a music video in March where the rapper used a toy gun to shoot a clown resembling President Donald Trump. In the video for the rapper’s remixed version of the song “Lavender,” by BADBADNOTGOOD, Snoop Dogg raps about police brutality in a world inhabited by clowns. He raps, “This is the final call” before pointing a toy gun at the clown dressed as Trump who is smoking a cigarette. Snoop pulls the trigger and a flag that says “bang” shoots out from the toy gun.

The rapper told Billboard magazine he wasn’t looking for any pick-up from the video. “Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f–ing clown as President, and the sh-t that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”

And the President quickly took to Twitter to respond to the video, tweeting, “”Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”

Mar 27, 2017 16

Christina El Moussa showed off a new side of herself.

The “Flip or Flop” star usually dresses casually on her HGTV show but the mom-of-two got dolled up for a new photo shoot.

The 33-year-old donned a fitted black Walter Mendez dress with a high neckline and gold detailing for the shoot.

“When I was asked by the super talented @damir_k to do a photoshoot you can bet I went for it,” El Moussa wrote on Instagram. She did not say what the shoot was for “@damir_k you are the best in the industry.”

El Moussa’s sexy post comes amid rumors the reality star is dating NHL player Nate Thompson.

While a rep for El Moussa denies there is anything romantic between the “Flip or Flop” star and the Anaheim Ducks player, a source told Us Weekly “she’s very into him and it’s super new.”

The dating rumors started when the pair posed for a group photo at the Lady Ducks fashion show earlier this month.

El Moussa has dated family contractor Gary Anderson since splitting from her husband and business partner Tarek El Moussa this summer.

'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Power Rangers' grab top spots at box office

Mar 27, 2017 16

Not all reboots are created equal.

This weekend at the box office, nostalgia-driven fare was everywhere, from “Beauty and the Beast” to “Power Rangers” and “CHIPS,” producing both successful and underwhelming results.

On the high end, Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” continued enchanting audiences in its second weekend in theaters, easily topping the charts with $88.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. On the low end, Warner Bros.’ raunchy, R-rated “CHIPS” debuted in seventh place with $7.6 million.

In the middle was Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers,” which earned a solid $40.5 million to grab the No. 2 spot. The PG-13 take on the campy 1990s television show tells the origin story of the Power Rangers with a diverse teenage cast of relative newcomers.

Its audiences were 60 percent male, while “Beauty and the Beast” crowds remained largely female. The divide allowed both to succeed in the crowded marketplace.

“Power Rangers” didn’t get the best reviews, but audiences gave it a promising A CinemaScore, suggesting that it might have staying power in the coming weeks.

“CHIPS,” on the other hand, underwhelmed audiences, critics and the studio. Dax Shepard wrote, directed and starred in the action comedy based on the 1970s and ’80s TV show about the California Highway Patrol.

Costing $25 million to produce, “CHIPS” wasn’t the biggest risk, but its $7.6 million debut disappointed. The film also got a deathly B- CinemaScore from audiences.

“Brand recognition will get you far — it gives you a leg up before you even start — but at the end of the day, it comes down to the movie itself,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. “No matter how much brand equity they have with a particular title, the real test is: How do critics and audiences respond to that film?

“You still have to deliver a solid movie that will entice people to spend their hard-earned money to go see something that they already know, or already know about,” he said.

That’s where Disney has succeeded, with its latest remake earning $317 million in just 10 days in North American theaters and $690.3 million worldwide.

“With ‘Beauty and the Beast’ there have been decades of goodwill and the Disney brand and so many more elements going into it than just the intellectual property,” Dergarabedian said. “Disney makes it look easy. Others have had more challenges.”

Also this weekend, the sci-fi thriller “Life” failed to connect with audiences, debuting in fourth place with $12.6 million behind holdover “Kong: Skull Island” with $14.4 million.

The R-rated space film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds as astronauts who discover that the alien life form they have brought on board might be dangerous. With a $58 million price tag, Sony and Skydance’s “Life” has a long journey to profitability.

Dergarabedian said that part of the reason for its muted launch might be that recent space films, such as “Passengers” and “Arrival,” are available for home viewing. The much-anticipated “Alien: Covenant” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” also are on the horizon.

Despite some flops, the March 2017 box office, which crossed $1 billion this weekend, has become the biggest March of all time, with help from the strength of “Logan,” ”Kong: Skull Island,” ”Get Out” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1.”Beauty and the Beast,” $88.3 million ($119.2 million international).

8.”The Shack,”$3.8 million.

9.”The Lego Batman Movie,” $2 million ($1.2 million international).

Nia Long's diva behavior is alive and well

Mar 26, 2017 30

Nia Long’s past diva behavior on movie sets has come back to
“bite her in the butt” after reports surfaced that she was “nasty and rude” to the crew when she guest-starred on “Empire,” reports the New York Post.

“Every dog has their day. She does a lot of wrong to people, and now it’s biting her in the butt,” a source told the paper of Long, whose credits include “Friday” and “Big Momma’s House.” “She has a history of giving people a hard time, especially wardrobe and makeup.”

Long was allegedly so rude to the “Empire” crew, co-star Taraji P. Henson had to step in.

TMZ reported that Henson told Long, “What are you on . . . Your period?” The show’s hair and makeup staff reportedly lodged a workplace complaint against Long, the site said. Long’s reps told TMZ they were not aware of any complaints.

But the Post says  this isn’t the first time Long has allegedly acted up on set. A source said she held up shooting on 2013’s “The Best Man Holiday” because “she insisted her character wear white when the director wanted everyone in black” for a funeral scene.

She reportedly threw a huge fit and delayed production for nearly an hour because she refused to wear black.

“Empire” executive producer Ilene Chaiken exclusively told the
paper: “Nia is a gifted actress, and we’re grateful for the incredible work she did on ‘Empire’ in this pivotal role. Her character Giuliana is a nemesis for Cookie [Henson], and the stories in the press would appear to be conflating that fiction with reality. We can’t wait for the fans to enjoy her spectacular turn on the show. It’s pure ‘Empire’ drama.”

Long’s rep dismissed any drama by saying, “We find the timing of all of these stories to be very suspicious,” since the new season on “Empire” debuted Wednesday.

“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” will be shown at Radio City Music Hall accompanied by a symphony orchestra who will play the score.

Justin Freer, the President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series told FOX411 that it took about three years to secure permission from the movie studio and author J.K. Rowling to go ahead with the project.

It is scheduled to play across the country and overseas until 2018.

And Harry Potter fans can rejoice. Freer says that they are planning on performing all eight films with an orchestra.

'Downton Abbey' star opens up about eating disorder

Mar 26, 2017 33

Jessica Brown Findlay, who is starring in Hulu’s new drama “Harlots,” is opening up about her eating disorder that she’s suffered from since she was a teenager.

“I’ve had an eating disorder since I was 14,” the 27-year-old “Downton Abbey” star told The Daily Telegraph. “And I think that we can feed certain ideas of what beauty is and what success is, and I just feel there has to come a time where those aren’t the rules anymore, and then we can have a mature conversation about what that is about, and about depression.”

Findlay admitted that she used to be scared to talk about her disorder in public, but now hopes that it will help other people get the help they need.

“If you are lucky enough to speak and be heard, it might be something that could be useful to others,” she said. “The more we have brave discussions like that going forward, the easier it is to talk about things, and the less alone we can feel. It’s certainly made me feel less alone.”

“I felt so alone for so long, and I just hid,” she continued. “And then I started talking and held my head up, and instead of saying ‘sorry’ decided to tell myself that I matter.”

She explained that when she started going to therapy, she realized it was good and healthy to talk about her issues.

“It’s about learning to stand up and say, ‘This is me, and that’s OK,'” she said. “I’m not going to be a better actor if I’m a dress size smaller. It’s nothing to do with my brain.”

Netflix re-ups with Adam Sandler, plan 4 more films together

Netflix is doubling down on Adam Sandler. The streaming giant has extended its deal with the comedian for four more feature films.

As part of a previous four-movie deal, Sandler has already produced and starred in two films for Netflix. While neither “Ridiculous 6” nor “The Do-Over” received anything close to good reviews, Netflix said Friday they are the biggest film releases for the service. Sandler’s next Netflix film, “Sandy Wexler,” debuts April 14.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said Sandler’s films have proven “extremely successful” with Netflix subscribers.

To date, the majority of Netflix original films have been smaller dramas or documentaries. But some of its most ambitious and priciest acquisitions are due out this year, including “War Machine” with Brad Pitt and “Bright” with Will Smith.

“@christinaelmoussa well that’s great if you’re that close, but I was commenting back to another person here on your post,” the user wrote back. “They made it sound as if ‘haters’ would only think your son was close to the pool. When I’m very positive I’m not hating here! It just looks like he’s close and as a mother of 3, yes, it looks scary. So it’s people having normal concern not hating.”
