I’m going to start with some happy news. Bob Geldof’s eldest daughter Fifi got married to a sand sculptor over the weekend. I think this is just good news to share as the family has obviously been plagued by tragedies so it’s nice that something lovely has happened.

Chris Hemsworth could be the next Bond. He put a picture up on his Instagram thanking his dad for being a great dad and now we know where he gets his looks from. The picture of his dad is from the 70s and he’s got the goods. Check it out below:

In The Mirror, they have published an article saying that everyone truly believes he is going to be the next 007. So that’s exciting stuff!!

Crowded House could be performing at the Aria Awards this year because it is both their 30th anniversaries. The band is also going to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame.

Michael Jackson – is he secretly alive? Paris Jackson has posted a picture of herself driving a car on Instagram and in the backseat it looks like somebody is sitting behind her with a scarf over their face. Fans have gone nuts saying ‘it’s him’, ‘he’s alive’, ‘it’s a conspiracy’. Check it out below:

if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own.

Sorry guys, but if you look really closely, it’s just a scarf tied over the backseat headrest.

And finally, Amber Heard is coming back to Australia. In fact, she is coming back to the Gold Coast to make another movie. She is going be starring as the main girl in Aquaman which is being shot here. We welcome her, but not her dogs.

Enjoy your Monday,

The entertainment news is a little strange today because it almost all seems to be focus on death.

We lost Gene Wilder this week, and his all time best friend Mel Brooks has gone on the Jimmy Fallon show and talked about his life. Watch below:

I feel for Mel. There is nothing worse than that feeling of not being able to pick up a phone and ring your friend.

This is something that I missed. Last week I mentioned that Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness had to fly to Melbourne because her mother was sick. Because of Gene passing away I didn’t realise that Deborra-Lee’s mum also passed away. Her funeral was yesterday and the who’s who were there. Kate Cebrano sang ‘Amazing Grace’ during the funeral, Hugh also did a tribute and sang a few songs, and people like Bert Newton and that turned up. Her mum was an amazing lady and won countless awards because she set up lots of different cancer charities. Now this a cute story – when Hugh Jackman asked Deborra-Lee to marry him he went to her mum to ask and she said yes, but there were a few provisos. She said ‘Firstly, you must love her forever – take this on board because I don’t want a divorce. The second thing is you need to be a patron for my charity.’

Now Chris Brown was a big story this week. Of course he was in trouble – he did something with a gun and a Miss California entrant and there was a police standoff. There is some conspiracy theories going around now because apparently the Miss California sent a text message to her friend when she was on the way to his house saying she was going to set the singer up. But then, Chris Brown has released a song today called ‘What Would You Do’. Coincidental? You can have a listen below:

And finally, ten years ago on Sunday Steve Irwin passed away. To mark the occasion, his parents have shared a letter that he wrote to them. It’s beautiful – read it here!

Have a wonderful weekend,

This time yesterday Chris Brown was in a standoff with police after he allegedly pulled a gun on a beauty queen. She was looking at some jewellery, he wasn’t happy with that and we all know how it ended. Yesterday Chris Brown said that he could “fart an elephant” so I thought we should ask doctor Chris Brown Bondi Vet on his opinion about how an elephant would feel about this. Dr Chris Brown then tweeted this:

You can’t help it can you – there are a lot of people in the world that have names that other people have and it can be unfortunate. Dr Chris Brown did say that he had considered doing his own instagram rant but he was travelling interstate and hadn’t packed a hoodie which would have been vital for the video. 

In the Courier Mail today I spotted something really cool on page 2. We know that Thor shut the city down last week, well Marvel have taken out a half page ad to thank the city and people of Brisbane for being a part of film history. It then goes on to thank every single shop and person involved in the shutdown of the city. I used to work at the Courier Mail and it’s not cheap for an ad that size – from what I can recall I think it’s about $30,000! Good form Thor!

Kiki said goodbye to Richie on The Bachelor last night. There have been photos taken behind the scenes of what it is like filming The Bachelor and it does not look romantic at all. In the pics you can see the Bachie with whoever he is going on a date with, but there is also about 100 people around them holding up lights and mics, plus there is even makeup artists coming in to touch up there makeup.

I spoke to Kiki on the phone today, and she confirmed this: “The crew are there obviously because the show wouldn’t be able to be made. The thing is you mentally prepare yourself and you are in the moment. You don’t pay attention with what is going on around you because you are there with Richie on the date and you make every moment count. You can’t let the crew around you alter or affect the moment you are sharing with him.” Seriously Kiki should still be on the show – but she was the last of the brunettes and Richie really loves his blondes.

Sunday funday! ?? #TheBachelorAU

Guy Pearce has announced on Twitter that he has had a little boy called Monte. He said for many years that he didn’t want to have children because he didn’t have the energy or the time. Best of luck to him!

Selena Gomez has announced that she has decided she needs to have a break before she has a breakdown. In a release published by the New York Times she said: “As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have Lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways. I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of Lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.” Depression is really ravaging Hollywood. It must be very stressful so good on her for taking some time.

So let’s move on to the story of the day – Chris Brown. Earlier this morning he was involved in a standoff with police as he wasn’t letting a SWAT team into his home until they had a warrant. Apparently he was having a party and Baylee Curran, a Miss California Regional 2016, was there and was having a look at some of his jewellery which he wasn’t happy about. Curran claims Brown pulled out his gun and told her to “get the f*** out”. His entourage then allegedly demanded Curran sign a non-disclosure statement, but she refused. She called 911 and then the drama unfolded. Brown took to Instagram to plead his innocence with a number of videos. The police ended up getting a warrant and have since begun searching the LA mansion. Brown is reportedly co-operating with police.

Until tomorrow,

The Video Music Awards were on yesterday and I think there is a new law in show business and it is that a Beyonce segment will obliterate whatever else surrounds it. Coldplay learnt that the hard way at the Superbowl and Rihanna and Britney Spears learnt that the hard way at the VMAs.

Britney mimed again – She has obviously lost confidence in some way and I guess it’s tough when you are performing against someone like Beyonce.

Bey won pretty much everything and she did a 16 minute show – she is a musical athlete! One thing everyone is talking about is that she took her daughter Blue Ivy along to the awards. It’s interesting that she did that because most celebrities try to hide their kids from the limelight – Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Kanye and Kim for that matter, are not afraid I guess.

Of course, Kanye jumped up and did a 16 minute ramble. And he did address the whole Taylor Swift drama:

I want to give a shout out to Alicia Keys, who is making a stand against the beauty industry. She walked the red carpet, did a Martin Luther King Jr. speech and sang a bit as well all without wearing any makeup. She is doing it on behalf of young people, and all people really, and showing that we are all beautiful, we don’t need all that makeup and airbrushing. It won’t stop me from using Instagram filters, but good on her for trying.

Vibin’ with friends tonight at the #VMAs ?

Gene Wilder has sadly passed away. He had Alzheimer’s. His nephew released a statement saying that he didn’t want anyone to know he had alzheimer’s because when kids saw him they would say ‘Hi Willy Wonka’ with a smile on their face. He didn’t want that smile to turn upside down by an adult telling the child that he had alzheimer’s. Gene is one of the funniest men of all time, he is one of the godfathers of modern comedy.

I only just watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Millie yesterday. What a year – in 2016 so far we have lost Gene, David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Garry Shandling, George Martin, Alan Rickman! It’s been a weird year, it’s like God is giving everyone a golden ticket and bringing them all up. RIP Gene Wilder.

Until tomorrow,
