Geoffrey Owens Calls Tyler Perry’s Job Offer ‘Generous’ After He’s Forced to Quit Trader Joe’s

Geoffrey Owens is feeling the love.

The former Cosby Show actor expressed his gratitude for the amount of support he’s received after the world learned he was working at a Trader Joe’s grocery store between acting gigs.

“It’s been surreal,” he said on Good Morning America. “It’s been nonstop contact and emails, phone calls, texts and interviews. It’s actually bizarre — a lot of fun though.”

Last week, the Daily Mail and Fox News published photos — snapped by a shopper — of Owens bagging groceries at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey.

Owens, who worked at the grocery store for 15 months, first took the job because he wanted “flexibility” in order to stay in the entertainment business; he’s since quit over all the attention.

Following the photos going viral, filmmaker Tyler Perry offered Owens, 57, a job on an OWN drama.

“#GeoffreyOwens I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!” Perry tweeted.

“I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs,” he continued. “The measure of a true artist.”

Owens said he was touched by the offer.

“It’s certainly very generous of him,” said Ownes. “To even just put that out there is very encouraging.”

And while Owens, who played Elvin Tibideaux on The Cosby Show from 1985-92, said he was “really devastated” at first after the photos came out, he has now seen the humor in the situation.

“I never would have imagined this in my wildest dreams,” he said. “What’s a way to get publicity? Take a job at Trader Joe’s!”

Zayn Malik’s New Tattoo Confirms That He’s a Harry Potter Superfan

This year has been off to a busy start for Zayn Malik. He got new eye tattoos on his chest (that fans speculate could be in honor of Gigi Hadid), then he got a massive new chest tattoo (of a red wolf) and now he’s chosen one of his most magical tatts yet, with his new Harry Potter-themed ink.

The ex One Direction star got a “dark mark” in honor of the infamous antagonist of the Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemort.

In new paparazzi shots, Malik was spotted in Florida relaxing by the pool with a noticeably large new tattoo below his right knee.

He chose a photo of Voldemort angrily battling in a fight scene, and while it could be from a number of legendary Voldemort duels, it most closely resembles his face during the Battle of Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Another tweeted: “Y’all this boy zayn really got a tattoo of Gigi’s Eyes.”

Toddler Adorably Yells ‘Dad!’ in Court as Adoption Is Finalized: ‘He’s Never Leaving Us,’ Says Mom

For nearly two years, Mandi and Tyler Palmer, of Perrysburg, Ohio, dreamed of the day they could officially call little Hunter their son.

“Once we got licensed as foster-to-adopt parents, that week, we got the phone call for Hunter. He was 8 days old,” Mandi, 33, tells PEOPLE. “We went and picked him up at Children’s Services. We brought him home and we went through the roller coaster ride of foster care for that entire year.”

After facing a few setbacks, and the uncertainty of Hunter being taken in by another family, Mandi and Tyler, 31, learned last December that they’d finally be able to adopt Hunter. So, on Dec. 18, the family-to-be dressed their best and headed to a local courthouse, where they signed the official paperwork to adopt the 17 month old.

“It was very emotional, in a good way. We had all of our family and friends there,” Mandi says. “At the end of the court process, the judge announced new legal name. And they read the adoption decree and that’s when Hunter looked at my husband and he said, ‘Dad!’ ”

She adds: “He just started clapping and everybody just started crying. It was so emotional. It’s definitely rewarding. It’s nice to look in his eyes now and not have to worry that he’s ever gonna have to leave us again.”

Mandi and Tyler, who wed in 2014, had always dreamed of being parents. Due to complications from Mandi’s Crohn’s disease diagnosis, Mandi was not able to conceive.

“That’s when we started looking into other options and we were talking about adoption and we kept hearing our county’s commercial for the need of foster parents in our area,” Mandi tells PEOPLE.

“We were scared. We kind of danced around the idea for a little bit. Then we prayed on it, and we just felt like God pushed us to do it,” she adds.

She and Tyler have viewed Hunter as their son since the moment they met the sweet infant, and Mandi tells PEOPLE that she’s happy their family is finally complete.

“On adoption day, it’s almost like a ton of bricks just came off our chest. We now know that he’s never leaving us,” Mandi says. “He’ll always be safe and loved with us. So that in itself is rewarding.”

She adds: “Life just happens. We’ve loved him since we’ve gotten him. We’ve cared for him as if he was gonna be with us forever, because every child deserves that.”

Ben Affleck Shuts Down Rumors That He’s Leaving Batman During Superhero-sized Comic-Con Stop

The Batman has returned. To San Diego Comic-Con that is.

Ben Affleck, the film franchise’s current Caped Crusader, surprised 6,000 enthusiastic fans at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday with his fellow Justice League cast members, who made a dramatic entrance by walking through the crowd during Warner Bros’ star-studded panel in the convention center’s storied Hall H.

The Batman v Superman star, dressed casually in a t-shirt, jeans and a blue bomber jacket, was joined by Justice League costars: Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, Superman Henry Cavill, The Flash Ezra Miller, Aquaman Jason Momoa and Cyborg Ray Fisher.

Throughout the event, Affleck looked happy and relaxed — laughing off rumors that he was being “phased out” as the Caped Crusader and even dropping a few f-bombs.

“Batman is the coolest f—ing part in any universe, DC, Marvel,” Affleck said when he came onstage. “I’m so thrilled to do it.”

He went on to name the Warner Bros. executives who told him that they wanted him to stay on as Batman, adding, “I believe them.” He later added that he thought the rumors got started because he is no longer directing the upcoming Batman solo movie.

The group also introduced a new sneak peek of Justice League.

Ahead of the panel, Gadot shared a smiling selfie with Affleck, Miller and Fisher, in front of what appeared to be a private plane.

“Ready or not here we come,” she wrote.

This first Justice League film sees DC’s most iconic superheroes joining forces to save the world from an enigmatic threat. Affleck and Cavill return as Batman and the Man of Steel, Gadot makes her third appearance as Wonder Woman, while Miller’s The Flash and Momoa’s Aquaman are fully introduced as part of the League ahead of their solo films arriving in 2018. Joss Whedon took over directing duties from Zack Snyder following a family tragedy — his 20-year-old daughter Autumn’s suicide.

“Basically, the pulmonary valve was completely blocked and he has a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart,” Kimmel previously explained, adding that despite the successful open heart surgery, Billy will have another operation between 3 and 6 months old.

Joked the star, “Poor kid. Not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face.”

Alex Rodriguez Says J-Lo Is One Of The Most ‘Impressive’ People He’s Met

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez aren’t afraid to show the world how happy they are.

Lopez recently shared some romantic shots from their recent trip to Paris on Instagram, dubbing the getaway “baecation.” And the former MLB player isn’t staying mum, either.

Rodriguez spoke to Extra on Monday during a press event for ABC’s “Shark Tank.” During the interview, he explained that he and Lopez prioritize spending time together despite their hectic schedules and are very compatible. 

“If you want to be together, you are together,” he told Extra. “Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our 40s, we’re really enjoying life, but she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met.”

The baseball star attended the “Shark Tank” press event as he prepares to become the first Hispanic “shark” on the show in the fall.

“The fact that (Hispanics) contribute over a trillion dollars annually to the economy is just a phenomenal feat,” Rodriguez said, according to CNBC. “I think in D.C. and other business communities, we should be having really smart conversations on how to double that number.”

Bill Cosby Isn’t The Exception, He’s The Rule

After 52 hours of deliberations, the jury in the criminal case brought against Bill Cosby by Andrea Constand was unable to reach a unanimous consensus. On Saturday morning, Judge Steven O’Neill declared a mistrial.

Constand says that, in 2004, Cosby tricked her into taking three blue pills that incapacitated her and proceeded to sexually assault her. In December 2015, nearly 10 years after settling a civil suit with Constand in 2006 for an undisclosed sum, Cosby was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. 

Although Cosby wasn’t acquitted, and Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said that he planned to retry the case, a mistrial is unquestionably a win for the 79-year-old actor and comedian. A retrial will take time ― and it means that Constand will have to testify about her trauma again.

Journalist Dana DiFilippo tweeted a video of Cosby supporters celebrating after the mistrial was announced:  

Before the Cosby trial began, justice felt somewhat inevitable. Because in a situation like this one, it just feels like it should be.

A man is publicly accused of sexually assaulting nearly 60 women over the course of decades. The stories are explicit, horrifying and similar. Many of them involve drugging and brutal rape. Together, they paint a picture of a serial and methodical sexual predator who used his celebrity to exploit women. 

As far as the court of public opinion is concerned, Bill Cosby’s guilt was all but decided in late 2014, when the floodgates opened and women’s stories began pouring out on what felt like a near-daily basis. And it felt like, for the first time, people were listening

Of course, this was before the country had collectively propped up a man who bragged about grabbing women’s pussies without consent to our highest office. It was before more than 15 women had publicly accused a candidate for President of the United States of sexual assault with little to no tangible impact on his support.

In the cases of both Cosby and Trump, we’re reminded that women are viewed as unreliable narrators of their own experiences, and that powerful men who are accused of perpetrating sexual violence ― even by more than a dozen women ― are assumed to be victims. 

Barbara Bowman, one Cosby’s alleged victims who has been telling her story publicly since 2006, wrote about this phenomenon in an op-ed for The Washington Post in November 2014, after a Hannibal Burress joke about Cosby seemingly woke people up to the reality of his past: 

Why wasn’t I believed? Why didn’t I get the same reaction of shock and revulsion when I originally reported it? Why was I, a victim of sexual assault, further wronged by victim blaming when I came forward? The women victimized by Bill Cosby have been talking about his crimes for more than a decade. Why didn’t our stories go viral?

Two and a half years later, their stories have gone viral. But the legal outcome remains uncertain. 

The lack of a guilty verdict in this case speaks to the challenges that any alleged victim of sexual assault faces when seeking recourse through the criminal justice system. 

There are the statutes of limitations that prevent victims who wait to speak out from seeking criminal charges. There’s the lack of sensitivity training in some police departments. There’s the backlog of rape kits. There’s the difficult-to-prosecute “he said, she said” nature of many sex crimes. There are the questions victims of sexual assault know that they’ll likely be asked: “Why didn’t you report it sooner?” “Why did you talk to him after?” “Were you drinking?” “What were you wearing?” “Were you maybe kind of asking for it?”

Not only are sexual assaults underreported, but according to RAINN, just 7 out of every 1,000 rapists will see a felony conviction. That statistic doesn’t happen in a vacuum.

Cosby may have had significantly more money and fame and press coverage than most alleged perpetrators of sexual assault and rape. It would be easy to assume that his celebrity is what protected him, that Andrea Constand would have gotten justice if her rapist were anyone else besides “America’s Dad.” But statistically, she wouldn’t have. In many ways, his situation was the exception but at the end of the day, he’s the rule.

Kevin Hart On Why He’s A Better Husband The Second Time Around

Being a married man at 37 is far different than being a married man at 22, says Kevin Hart.

During his appearance on “Oprah’s Master Class” this weekend, the comedian opened up about his marriage to his first wife, his “community college sweetheart” Torrei, and his marriage to his second wife, Eniko Parrish, comparing the two relationships and what he learned about both marriage and himself through each experience.

“My first marriage, I got married too young,” Hart says. “It was young, young love.”

Despite this love, the fast-paced lifestyle of a bourgeoning comedy career took a toll that Hart believes neither he nor Torrei was equipped to handle in their 20s.  

I have to be different to get different.
Kevin Hart

“In any relationship, it’s very hard to understand being gone,” he says. “It’s very hard to understand coming in the house [at] 3, 4 in the morning on a consistent basis. As a comedian, we’re out until 5 a.m., but you can’t tell a person that that doesn’t understand that world.”

Hart also takes responsibility for his role in the breakdown of this marriage. “I was guilty of being caught up in the fast-paced lifestyle,” he says. “I was a boy. I was an immature boy, and she was an immature woman.”

Fifteen years later, however, is a different story. Kevin married model Eniko Parrish in 2016 after seven years of dating and feels much more prepared for marriage this time around.

“In this marriage, she was able to get a Kevin 2.0 ― a Kevin that’s a grown man,” he says. “I have to be different to get different.”

Hart explains that he deliberately approaches this marriage differently than he did with his first, particularly when it comes to his career in entertainment.

“I wanted her to see ― see what it is that I really do, see all of the hard work that goes into it, see what I’m really building,” he says. “I’m so open and honest about everything. You become in tune. And when you’re in tune, you’re in sync. And when you’re in sync, you’re inseparable.”

All the Scoop on the Big D.C. Dinner President Trump Is Boycotting — AND the Other One He’s Not Invited to

This time last year, President Obama joked about the election, bid the Washington press adieu, and finally dropped the mic at his last White House Correspondents Dinner in office. Too bad nothing of major political significance has gone down since then and nobody will have anything to talk about this year, right?

Just kidding! American politics are utter chaos right now! That can be distressing to a lot of people on a day-to-day basis, but this weekend, there’s an opportunity for you to try to just enjoy it: The annual mutual roasting of the Washington media and the politicians they cover has rolled around once again. Here are all the details about where to watch and what you’ll see at this year’s “nerd prom” — and it should be an interesting one.

When is the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and how can I watch it?

The White House Correspondents’ Association’s annual dinner takes place this Saturday, April 29, held in the ballroom at the Washington Hilton Hotel. The event will stream live on C-SPAN beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT.

Who is delivering the keynote?

The Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj will drop political zingers as this year’s speaker, a role that was filled in 2016 by Larry Wilmore. Minhaj joined the satirical news program during Jon Stewart’s tenure as host, and reports primarily on religious and Muslim issues. “Hasan’s smarts, big heart, and passion for press freedom make him the perfect fit for our event, which will be focused on the First Amendment and the importance of a robust and independent media,” White House Correspondents’ Association president Jeff Mason said in a statement. If you’re not familiar with Minhaj and want a preview of his comedy before the big night, check out some of his best Daily Show segments here.

Who will be there?

The big story here is who will not be there: Donald Trump, who has made no secret of his loathing for the news media — or the “enemy of the American people,” as he likes to call it — has said he will not attend the event, which celebrates the free press and honors the First Amendment. The President isn’t the only big name who’ll be sitting this one out, either; the normally star-studded affair is expected to be much more low-key this year, and many media outlets are extending their invitations to journalists rather than celebrities. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be any stars in attendance. We do know Alyssa Milano, Chad Lowe, Matt Walsh, Elvis Costello, and Billy Bob Thornton will be there.

But wait! If you’re bummed about the party’s lack of a POTUS as well as its celebrity shortage, there might be a solution for both losses! Alec Baldwin “wouldn’t say  not lobbying” to perform his impression of the President and stand in for Trump at the dinner. Wouldn’t that be tremendous?

Why won’t Trump be there?

“I am not a hypocrite, and I haven’t been treated properly, and that’s okay, that’s fine,” he explained on Fox and Friends soon after he announced he would skip the dinner. Instead of schmoozing with the press, he’ll spend Saturday — which, in a remarkable coincidence, happens to be his 100th day in office — “holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania,” he tweeted.

Has the President ever skipped it before?

Yes, but it’s been 36 years since the Commander-in-Chief sat one out. Trump will be the first POTUS to skip the dinner since Ronald Reagan, who missed it once, in 1981, because he was recovering from an assassination attempt — but he did call into the event to deliver remarks from the hospital. Before Reagan, Jimmy Carter did not attend in 1980 or 1978, and Richard Nixon opted out in 1974 and 1972.

This whole thing sounds super lame. What else can I watch that night instead?

Funny you should ask! Late-night maverick Samantha Bee will be hosting the first annual Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington that very same night. The event will air as a special episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee at 10:00 p.m. ET on TBS, and stream on Twitter at 11:00 p.m. ET/8:00 pm PT, with a red carpet stream beginning two hours earlier.  “We’re throwing a party to toast the free press — while we still have one,” Bee says in the promo video. Raise a glass!

Obituary Says Man Died Peacefully After He’s Told ‘Trump Has Been Impeached’

Michael Garland Elliott has won 2017 — and he did so posthumously.

In an obituary published in The Oregonian/OregonLive, Michael Elliot’s last conversation was a bit of a white lie. He supposedly took his last breath right after his close friend, ex-wife Teresa Elliot, told him the president had been impeached.

“Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard,” the obituary reads. “And the last thing she said to him was ‘Donald Trump has been impeached.’ Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded.”

Teresa Elliot: You are a sly, brilliant human.

In addition to his political disinterests, the obituary depicted Elliott — who was apparently born in either 1940 or ‘41 — as the “sharpest dresser in town” and a man of many hobbies. He played on a semi-professional basketball team that involved him dressing in drag, and he apparently would often throw his golf clubs into trees out of frustration. When he could no longer play golf, due to his health, he “threw things at the TV instead.” 

Michael Garland Elliott, we didn’t know you. But, damn, we wish we did.

Billy Dee Williams Says He’s Not in The Last Jedi

Billy Dee Williams will not be in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The Lando Calrissian actor made the declaration during his “Smooth Talkin’ With Billy Dee Williams” panel Thursday at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida.

Williams played Lando, of course, in Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi, but has also voiced the character in Rebels, Robot Chicken, Lego Star Wars, and Battlefront.

A younger version of Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover, will appear in the upcoming Han Solo anthology film.

In addition to his “Smooth Talkin’” panel, Williams also appeared at Thursday’s “40 Years of Star Wars” panel alongside George Lucas and former co-stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davis, and Peter Mayhew.

‘I’m Done’: Patrick Stewart Says He’s Retiring From X-Men Movies

The X-Men may have to find a new mutant to seek guidance from.

Patrick Stewart has announced that he is retiring from the “X-Men” movie franchise after 17 years portraying the sage mutant leader Professor Charles Francis Xavier ― a.k.a. “Professor X.”

The 76-year-old British actor shared his decision during a SiriusXM Town Hall discussion on his upcoming X-Men film “Logan.” The full discussion and the film are slated for release on March 3, Entertainment Weekly reported Friday.

Speaking beside his “Logan” costar Hugh Jackman and the film’s director and co-writer James Mangold, Stewart said he came to the decision after watching the latest installment about a week ago and finding himself moved to tears.

“I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie,” he said.

Jackman, who has also confirmed that he is leaving the franchise after starring as Wolverine, was one of the first people he said he shared the news with.

“I told [Jackman] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over,’” Stewart said.

Stewart has starred in six of the X-Men movies preceding “Logan.” These are “X-Men” (2000), “X-Men 2” (2003), “ X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006), “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (2009), “The Wolverine” (2013), and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (2014).

Adam Lambert Responds To Rumors He’s Dating Sam Smith

In our dreams, Adam Lambert and Sam Smith would make an adorable couple, but alas, there’s no romance heating up between the two pop stars for now.

On Thursday’s installment of “Watch What Happens Live,” Lambert told host Andy Cohen that although he and Smith have done “a lot of bonding” over the past year, there was no truth in any of the media speculation that the two are more than just friends. 

“I love that rumor, actually. The minute I heard it, I texted him,” Lambert, 35, said, responding to a fan’s inquiry. After shrugging off the romantic suggestion, he praised Smith, noting, “He’s such a nice guy. He’s so funny.”

The two stars have, in fact, spent quality time together in the past. In March 2016, the guys were spotted together at the New York nightclub No. 8. DJ Dawson posted a photograph of himself posing with Lambert and Smith on Instagram.  

Lambert elaborated further about his friendship with the “Stay With Me” singer in the “Watch What Happens Live” interview Thursday. “We did ride a rickshaw in London from one club to another, wasted, at like 3 in the morning,” he said. “And I ran into him in Mykonos this summer.” 

Fortunately for us, Lambert documented both of those encounters with Smith for posterity on Instagram

Though Smith, 24, has spent much of the past year out of the limelight, Lambert is gearing up to the road once more. In June, he’ll kick off a North American tour with Queen, playing 25 cities across the country.

Sizzle or not, Lambert and Smith no doubt have a lot to talk about as two of the pop world’s most out-and-proud performers. And there’s no reason the two can’t make some sweet music in the studio. C’mon, boys ― gift us with some ear candy!

Father Stunned by Son’s Arrest in Murder of Queens Jogger: ‘He’s Never Had a Fight in His 20 years’

The father of Chanel Lewis, the 20-year-old man who was arrested this weekend for the August 2016 murder of Queens, New York, jogger Karina Vetrano, told reporters that he was “extremely surprised” by the charges.

According to the New York Post, Richard Lewis, a 70-year-old former school principal, called his son a good student and “a very humble kid” when he met with reporters on Sunday.

“Chanel would never have gone to do what they say he has done,” the father said. “He’s never had a fight in his 20 years.”

In fact, Richard said his son, who lived with his mother and siblings in East New York, was previously the victim of crimes. He said Chanel was hospitalized last year after being mugged and hit in the head with a piece of wood by three people. Chanel was later mugged again by the assailants.

The dad said he would tell Vetrano’s family, “I’m sorry to hear about , but I’m sure that would not be a part of that.”

Vetrano’s parents, Phil and Cathy Vetrano, expressed mixed feelings to reporters outside their home.

“I’m not going to say it is a good day but we can move forward now,” Phil said after praising police for their investigative work, according to the New York Daily News. “We know who did this.”

“The demon must get his justice,” Cathy said. “We will see to it.”


At an NYPD press conference on Sunday, police said that they do not believe that Lewis knew Vetrano prior to her disappearance. They said he had no prior criminal history aside from some summonses. According to police, Lewis gave a DNA swab to authorities after an interview on Feb. 2. His DNA allegedly matched with DNA found on Vetrano. He has been booked on murder and sexual assault charges, according to police. It is not known how he pleads against the charges or if he has retained an attorney.

On Sunday he was seen leaving a police station in handcuffs while reporters and bystanders shouted at him. In a video from AM New York, Lewis looked around while he was led to a cop car, appearing stunned and confused, as people could be heard yelling “why’d you kill her?”

After six-month long search, the arrest took place Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn, New York, according to the New York Daily News.

Vetrano’s body was found in Spring Creek Park around 11 p.m. on Aug. 2, about a dozen feet from a jogging trail she used daily, according to police.

The 30-year-old was sexually assaulted and strangled after putting up a “ferocious fight,” investigators previously revealed. They further believe Vetrano bit her attacker, because her teeth showed signs of cracking and found DNA under her fingernails.

Detroit Just Named A Street After Stevie Wonder, And He’s Thrilled

Stevie Wonder moved out of Detroit years ago, but he’ll always have a home in Motown ― and now he can also lay claim to his very own street.

The legendary musician joined Mayor Mike Duggan Wednesday for the public unveiling of “Stevie Wonder Avenue,” a renamed portion of Milwaukee Avenue north of downtown. The new name is marked with a street sign at the corner of Woodward Avenue.

Prepping for the #StevieWonder street dedication ceremony today at Woodward and Milwaukee in #Detroit. #Street4StevieDetroit

A photo posted by carlotta.tutt.holloway (@carlottath) on

“This is just an amazing moment,” Wonder said at the dedication, his brother and Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) by his side. “I’m going to freeze this moment … and remember it forever.”

The spot has some significance for Wonder, who once lived on Milwaukee Avenue, according to the Detroit News. A mile west is Hitsville U.S.A., the former headquarters of Motown Records ― now home to the Motown Museum ― where Wonder got his start.

The artist thanked Conyers, saying the veteran congressman’s fight for equal rights has been an inspiration since his teenage years. Wonder took up the cause of championing social justice issues through his music.

He then took a moment during the celebratory press conference to get “real,” urging fans to focus on unifying the nation in the wake of divisions revealed by the presidential election.

“I’ve never seen none of you,” Wonder said, referencing his lifelong blindness, “so when I hear things about people not liking people because of the color of their skin, it is so absurd to me, so barbaric to me.

“I just say to you in this city, even in this state that has now become, at this point, a red state ― I’m just keeping it real ― don’t let the color of the state define who you are,” he added. “Don’t let negativity say this is what you are.”

Before the election, Wonder quipped that voting for President-elect Donald Trump would be like asking the blind musician to drive you to the hospital in an emergency.

“We are on a journey,” he said Wednesday. “When I think about this street, now being Stevie Wonder Avenue, I want all of us to walk down the street that leads us to a place of humanity and equality, of fairness and respect for each other.”

Wonder, 66, was born Stevland Hardaway Judkins in Saginaw, Michigan, and spent his childhood in Detroit. He was a musical prodigy, reportedly teaching himself to play the piano, drums and harmonica by age 10. A year later, Motown founder Berry Gordy offered him a record deal, and in 1963, “Little” Stevie Wonder landed his first of many No. 1 hits with the spirited live recording “Fingertips, Pt. 2.”

He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the 1980s, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014, and has won more than 20 Grammys


“Naming this street in his honor is reflective of the profound impact that he has had on both the city of Detroit and Motown’s legacy,” Robin Terry, Motown Museum chairwoman and CEO, said in a statement ahead of the dedication. 

It’s not the only new honor bestowed on Wonder. News site Slate has declared this “Wonder Week,” delving into the artist’s discography and his enduring influence on popular culture.

And if you read through Slate’s growing list of articles, you may as well listen to a seasonally appropriate soundtrack ― so here’s a compilation of Wonder’s Christmas songs

Theater: “Hamilton’s” Miranda Is The New Biggie Smalls? No, He’s The New Sondheim!

HAMILTON *** 1/2 out of ****

Hamilton. You’ve heard of it, I think? Yep.

So I can skip the preliminaries, like the plot description or explaining what’s exactly going on here and cut to the chase. [Here’s my review of the Off Broadway run if you’re one of the four people who hasn’t heard about Hamilton already.]

Is every Broadway show going to include freestyling from now on? Of course not. And Lin-Manuel Miranda isn’t the next Biggie Smalls. He’s the next Sondheim (or to avoid such dizzying expectations, he has the talent to follow in Sondheim’s footsteps). Hamilton isn’t The Blueprint slapped onto Broadway. It’s a full blown Broadway musical, with elements of Brit-pop and girl group sounds and good old-fashioned show tunes and yes of course rapping in various styles.

Listen closely and what you’ll hear above all is a fresh new voice that is building on Sondheim’s legacy: the whip-smart lyrics, the marvelous word play, the intelligence, the building of melodies that are catchy but never banal, the deployment of lines and hooks like depth charges that repeat again and again throughout a song and throughout the show until they have a remarkable power and emotional intensity. In short, Hamilton has a lot more in common with Sunday In The Park With George than It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back.

This isn’t to downplay the central accomplishment of creating the first great musical that employs hip-hop. But he’s not just doing a hip-hop show that’s playing on the Great White Way. They did Tango Argentino on Broadway and people loved it, but it’s not like every show now includes a tango salon. One-off shows in a particular style don’t change Broadway. But a full-on Broadway musical that incorporates a style that’s fresh to its audience (albeit one long-established) can change it. Miranda has grafted a strand of hip-hop onto Broadway’s DNA and it’s going to stick. The same happened with Hair and Grease and others embracing rock and roll. That genre of music and style of singing became part of Broadway’s vocabulary, just as jazz and r&b and country and other genres have intertwined with old style belting over the years.

Some great Broadway talents simply can’t sing in a rock and roll style. They’d be useless on a show like Newsies. Others can’t do country or jazz or soul. Not everyone belongs on The Wiz revival. It has nothing to do with age or talent; some people just don’t have the voice or affinity for certain genres. (You hear it time and again when opera stars make the awful mistake of tackling pop tunes.) And operetta is beyond many — that’s clearly why the delightful musical On The Twentieth Century hasn’t been done in dog years. One needs a particular refined skill to assay it. And yes one needs a very refined skill set of swagger and excellent enunciation to tackle the complex lines and internal rhymes of Hamilton and hip-hop in general. Not every Broadway wanna-be has this in their quiver. But from now on, they’re going to have to try.

We all know why some say hip-hop makes sense for this particular show. The Founding Fathers were bad mother f***ers! They laid it on the line! They were scrappy and bold and risking it all with their backs against the wall and looked down upon as Johnny Come Latelys by their betters! In short, maybe it’s sort of a fluke that the style works so well for an era once enshrined by the very old-school musical 1776.

Wrong. Hip hop works for this show because Miranda wrote it and he’s good and because he used hip-hop as a vehicle for revealing character and pushing the story forward. Imagine a musical set in France, a show about the court of the Sun King where withering put-downs and dexterous word play were prized above all. Hip-hop? Freestyling? It would work like a charm. Imagine a show about scientists, maybe the Manhattan Project or a show about Isaac Newton or Galileo or maybe string theory. In science, scholars debate and claw at one another. Creating a vivid, convincing picture of your theory is important. And tearing down someone else’s idea is just as important a skill as building up your own. A rap battle? Makes perfect sense. A show about newspaper reporters today or during the tabloid era of the 1970s or back in the Roaring 20s when (I hear) reporting was glamorous and fun and actually paid well? Yes, I can imagine hip-hop working well there too because who savors language and slang and cutting retorts more than reporters? A hip-hop Taming Of The Shrew? It’s probably already being written. A hip-hop musical for the American Revolution is no more incongruous than rock n roll as a source for the music in Spring Awakening, a show based on a German play from 1891. So let’s put to rest the idea that hip-hop will only work once in a blue moon or when whomever took an option on the movie Straight Outta Compton brings it to Broadway.

In the same way, the diverse casting of almost everyone but white guys to play these iconic roles works not because of any particular political context it creates. It works because color blind casting (or here, color-centric casting, casting with purpose and in celebration of color, not mindlessly pretending it doesn’t exist) works for everything from Shakespeare to Arthur Miller because when the material is classic and the performers are good, new layers will always be revealed. Indeed, it only works when the performers are good because no show works unless the performers are good. And this cast is great.

NOTE: Here’s casual video of Lin-Manuel Miranda and the delightful Jonathan Groff entertaining the hundreds waiting in hope of winning a $ 10 front row seat to the show. Something like this happens every day outside the theater. Try as you might to hate a show with all this hype and with endless stories in media outlets that never talk about Broadway, but when you see something cool like this, darnit, you just can’t.

Okay, so on with the show. Hamilton is an orphaned immigrant, penniless but intellectually vibrant and desperate to contribute, desperate to take part in the American Experiment. His first friend when arriving in New York is the cautious Aaron Burr. Their lives are intertwined as each succeeds and plays a major role in the Revolution, with Hamilton somehow always one step ahead of Burr and so on and then in comes Lafayette and Washington and Jefferson and King George gets huffy and you know the rest.

Hamilton is sprawling and messy and deliriously ambitious and flawed — of course, it’s flawed! You can’t push boundaries without stumbling briefly here and there — and very exciting. I saw it at the Public and held back on raving. Sometimes the bolder a film or TV show or novel, the more you want to catch your breath and hold off. A second viewing of a movie, waiting five or ten episodes into a season, living with an album for a while, all of that can make a huge difference. Sometimes, flaws become more pronounced and the shock of the new becomes less shocking. Other times, a second viewing of a movie or repeated spins of an album deepen your appreciation and bolster your confidence that this is indeed the shit. Hamilton is indeed the shit.

When I saw it at the Public, I knew it would be among my favorite shows of the year. But I felt it could be better in varied ways. If nothing else, the cramped space of the original venue was not ideal for the heavy wooden set design of David Korins. It felt a little dark and oppressive. In this transfer, almost everything on Broadway is better. Miranda — who wrote the book, music, lyrics and stars as Alexander Hamilton — refined and tightened every element of the show. (I would dearly love to see a breakdown of all the changes lyrically and musically and book-wise.) The performances are sharper and more powerful. The set can breathe. The audience is ecstatic, electric. The Producers and The Book Of Mormon were super-charged smash hits that broke through to the popular culture that is now usually indifferent to musicals. Rent was an obvious precursor in the game-changing game of stamping rock and roll as music that belongs once and for all on Broadway. But I have to go back to Angels In America for a show that felt this charged and this important both culturally and politically and especially theatrically.

And what a cast! Anthony Rapp was in the audience the night I saw it. And just like Rent, I’m certain this show has launched the careers or boosted the fortunes of any number of performers on stage. Christopher Jackson as George Washington has gained in stature since the Public. Before, his Washington seemed to fade into the background. Now he looms like a fatherly presence, wise and a little intimidating.

In the dual roles of the brash Hercules Mulligan and the reserved James Madison, Okieriete Onaodowan remains a droll pleasure. Is it possible Leslie Odom Jr. is even better as the wily, put-upon Aaron Burr? His story feels more balanced and empathetic, more of a mirror to Hamilton instead of just a foil. Burr reflects the cynical modern politician and Hamilton the ideals of passion. Yet he’s not just a bitter Salieri. If Burr hadn’t fired that fateful, fatal shot, he’d be remembered more highly. And no one seeing his show-stopper “The Room Where It Happens” — it stops a lot, this show — will forget how Odom captured Burr’s ambition and insight and frustration over being bested yet again.

Certainly Renée Elise Goldsberry couldn’t have improved as Angelica Schuyler, the woman who sacrificed her attraction to Alexander Hamilton so her sister could be happy and her family’s fortune secure. She is incandescent, both enchanting at good ole Broadway belting and sensational at rapping. Goldsberry has verve and punch and diction so crystal clear (thank you, classical training in the fundamentals!) that her flow puts most everyone else to shame. Of course, Daveed Diggs steals the show as both the outrageously fun Marquis de Lafayette in Act One and the aristocratic, combative Thomas Jefferson in Act Two. He’s hilarious in the first act and then tops himself with the second-act opener “What’d I Miss.” Miranda naturally is the heart and soul throughout, singing with the shy awkward voice of a teenager and gaining in confidence throughout without ever calling attention to the slowly evolving growth of our protagonist.

And I’d like to make a personal apology to Jonathan Groff for the modest doubt that was in my heart. Brian D’arcy James was so…so delicious as King George at the Public that I was crushed when he left for Something Rotten and bummed that friends wouldn’t be able to see his indelible turn. How would they get someone with enough star power to put over such a fun, if secondary role? Well Groff has the star power and I’ve been a fan of his on every conceivable level since Spring Awakening. But still I thought, “Damn, I wish James were still in it. He was perfect.”

Then out comes Groff and he’s a sheer delight as well. He’s of course younger but this works perfectly, emphasizing the spoiled child aspect of King George. Groff delivers completely in the part, which emphasizes what a gem Miranda created and how good Groff is when given material this sterling. Plus the Brit-pop nature of his tunes are a savvy respite from the delightfully dense, but sit-up-and-pay-attention rap lyrics that dominate the show. Along with Goldsberry’s singing at key moments and some other islands of pure singing, Groff’s scenes allow the audience to catch its breath. I guess someone else down the road will make the most of it too, but now I want everyone to catch Groff in this role. Who’d want to miss a sexy, slightly mad King George? Not me.

If King George and his signature tune “You’ll Be Back” and the monarch’s other reprises were merely the comic pleasures they are, that would be enough. But typically for this show, they’re so much more. Along with tunefulness and full-on comic relief, like everything else in this rock solid creation, George’s tunes advance the plot, provide context and underline the high-wire nature of what the rebellious colonists are attempting.

Think about what they accomplish. The King’s petulance and expectation of unquestioning allegiance makes clear why they would rebel. His unnerving threats to crush them militarily make clear how fraught with danger the situation would prove. George’s malicious glee over the utter mess that faces them after “winning” — having to create a new nation and government from scratch, deal with foreign powers, appease the various factions that only found common ground when they had the common enemy of England and so on — illuminate how in fact the easy part was winning freedom and it could all so easily fall apart, especially with England ready to undermine it at every tunr. And his utter bemusement over Washington voluntarily stepping down from the reins of power (King George had no idea such a thing was even possible!) nudges us again to remember how unusual self-rule and elected leaders and a peaceful exchange of power was for both the US and the world. All of this is conveyed subtly and with élan in tunes that you would kill for and lyrics that are sparkling and which combine in the hands of an artist like Groff to create musical theater heaven.

Most every complaint or concern I had melts away in the flush of excitement in seeing the show a second time. I appreciated anew how a lesser talent might have used hip-hop so each Founding Father could boast endlessly about himself. In fact, most of the time, everyone is rapping about someone else. Burr is the narrator so he’s usually commenting on Hamilton. And Hamilton raps about Burr and Jefferson, Jefferson raps about Hamilton, the Schuyler sisters rap about the men in their life and so on.

And how smart the show is. Like Sondheim, Miranda revels in arcana that might seem an unlikely source for musicalizing (a song about the federal banking system? ) and yet consistently brings it to life with the same passion and attention to detail that Hamilton and the rest savored at the time. Miranda and director Thomas Kail have done an excellent job of modulating the flow. Whereas the first time I saw the show, the finale felt dragged out and simply wrong, this time it moved much more quickly and felt earned. (Maybe it was just a second viewing when I knew what to expect but I imagine a change in pacing and trims here and there are responsible.) Ditto the fate of Hamilton’s son in a duel that cruelly echoes his own fate and various other plot points. The first time, I found it unnecessary and drawn out. This time, thanks to improved work by actor Andrew Chappelle and perhaps some tightening and trimming of his big scene(s), it works better.

Mind you, I remain utterly indifferent to the choreography of Andy Blankenbuehler. It leaves me just as cold on Broadway as it did at the Public. It doesn’t hurt the show, simply because it feels like mere background, something one can simply ignore. I can’t think of a single scene where the endless popping and modern moves of the chorus added emotionally to the events taking place (though director Kail uses them well for crowd scenes and transitions).

Ditto the set, which is far less oppressive in the big space of the Richard Rodgers. Less oppressive but not less interesting. It’s a wooden walkway that encircles the back and sides of the stage and i mostly underutilized. People are often positioned up there to stand and observe the proceedings below but essentially they just fade into the background. Similarly, rolling wooden platforms very rarely come into play and the one visual flourish that made good use of them has been cut. I’d sooner see it all removed and no audience would be the wiser. The costumes of Paul Tazewell are excellent throughout, with the notable exception of the female dancers in the chorus. I still don’t understand the artistic choice that has some of them wearing pants and vest akin to the men while others are unnecessarily in what are essentially undergarments.

Certainly the musical direction and orchestrations of Alex Lacamoire work in ways large and small to get across the gorgeous score while supporting the actors and allowing the lyrics (surely among the wordiest in Broadway history) to breathe. Not to mention embodying a range of styles with nimble conviction! It’s extraordinary work I am ill equipped to parse but appreciate nonetheless as boundary pushing in its own right.

Less positively, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Schuyler and the future Mrs. Hamilton remains a weak link both dramatically and voice-wise. It’s clear why her big number “Burn” is one of the few in the show to receive tepid applause. To be fair, it is in part a combination of playing the less interesting role of dutiful wife and playing it opposite Goldsberry who becomes an undeniable star in front of our eyes. And only more careful listening will prove this, but I think the melodic lines of Eliza may also be the only awkward and weak ones in the otherwise excellent score. On the bright side, Soo holds the spotlight at the finale much more convincingly, thanks to the improvements made by Miranda and Kail.

And you know what? All those cavils are exciting! The choreography and the set and even one of the leads aren’t ideal? And the show is still terrific? As I said before, it’s a treat to see Miranda in this role and his innate likability shouldn’t be underestimated in putting the show forward. But I still think the prickly role he has created will draw even better performances from other actors down the road; he is great casting and I wouldn’t miss him in it for the world. But unlike say John Cameron Mitchell and Hedwig where it was hard to imagine others tackling that part (an idea that now seems silly, but still), it’s not only not silly to imagine other actors playing Hamilton, it’s fun. He’s created a great role in a great show and people will be playing that part for all its worth for many, many years to come. And that’s only counting the actors who will appear in this production.

A Cat Named Limberbutt McCubbins Is Running For President! He’s A Demo-Cat.

A cat named Limberbutt McCubbins is running for president. He’s filed his paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and everything.

What sets McCubbins apart from the other 2016 hopefuls isn’t merely that he’s a 5-year-old neutered rescue kitty, though that is certainly one notable difference.

On this here 4th of July, I, Limberbutt McCubbins, promise to work my hardest for every American. If elected as your…

Posted by Limberbutt 2016 on Saturday, July 4, 2015

McCubbins is registered as a Democrat, but his campaign literature describes him as a “Demo-cat.”

And his slogan is suitably inspiring: “Together, we cat.”

“We are not taking donations at this time,” says 17-year-old Isaac Weiss, one of the cat’s two campaign managers. “If we later decided to take them, they will most likely be forwarded to the Humane Society or another organization for animals.”

Weiss tells The Huffington Post that the campaign started out as a joke. But once the FEC papers were filed, things started getting more serious.

“Me and my friends have begun to realize how easy it is to run for office, and have learned about the way the FEC and campaign finance work,” says Weiss. “Not that we don’t want anyone to run, but I personally don’t think that if I’m applying to run for the most important position in the U.S.A., that I should be able to do it in 20 minutes. Or less. And without immediately proving that I’m at least a U.S. citizen.”

Along with contemplating election reform, Weiss says the campaign’s other big issues right now are protecting the environment and the legalization of catnip.

And no, McCubbins wouldn’t have invaded Iraq, since the “climate is not favorable for a house cat.”

McCubbins’ extracurricular interests as “sleeping, playing with his scratching post” and tearing paper — especially model government paraphernalia — the cat-didate’s owner and co-campaign manager, 18-year-old Emilee McCubbins, says.

“He’s a good cat,” she adds.

Despite a patent lack of experience, as well as several other fatally disqualifying factors, Weiss tells HuffPost he hopes voters will see McCubbins as the right cat for the job, because “he’s ready to bring some fresh ideas to the table.”

“For over 200 years, man has been running the show,” he says. “And now, it’s cats’ turn to help lead the way.”

25 Unmistakable Signs He’s in Love With You

By Jillian Kramer, Glamour

Some signs of true love are subtle. Others? Well, they all but hit you over the head with obviousness. If you’re blissfully happy and searching for signs that your guy is hooked on you too, these 25 signs will make it crystal clear.

1. He actually listens when you give him a 20-minute-long play-by-play of a dramatic situation with your work frenemy.

2. He doesn’t suggest you go brush your teeth before he kisses you good morning.

3. He initiates cuddling that doesn’t lead to sex.

4. He’s introduced you to all his friends — and when you met them, they already knew where you work and that you love Swedish fish.

5. He’s introduced you to his parents (or wants to).

6. He texts you just to say “Good morning” or “I’m thinking about you.”

7. He never misses the chance to tell you “Good night,” even if he’s out with the guys.

8. He’s prone to saying corny, eye-roll-inducing things such as, “You have the most beautiful smile.”

9. He puts you first. Think: accepting the invite to your friend’s engagement party on the night his favorite team is playing — without so much as a mention of it.

10. He’s equal parts proud and ever-so-slightly jealous when another man hits on you.

11. Forget talking about tomorrow, he’ll say things like, “Next summer, we should…” and doesn’t hesitate to put plans on the books for months in advance.

12. He gives you the remote more often than he hogs it.

13. He saves the last bite of any delicious meal just for you.

14. He asks to sign the cards you send to your mother.

15. When you’re in bed with killer cramps, he runs to the drugstore for tampons and painkillers.

16. All it takes is a single smile aimed in his direction, and this man can’t stay mad at you.

17. Whether he’s prepping for a big meeting or simply picking out his tie, he likes to get your opinion.

18. He cares whether you orgasm — and learns what it takes to make it happen.

19. That thing you mentioned in passing you just had to have? Don’t buy it — he already snagged two for you.

20. He’s bookmarked a GIFs site so he can randomly send you messages that make you smile.

21. He puts his phone away when you’re around.

22. He teases you in ways that feel funny, not mean.

23. He’s saved every card and note you’ve ever given him. Heck, he even has a sliver of wrapping paper from your first-ever gift exchange.

24. He tells everyone he knows when you have a life achievement of any kind.

25. He says, “I love you” every day, and you believe him.

9 Reasons No One Will Miss Sepp Blatter When He’s Gone

Longtime FIFA president Sepp Blatter voluntarily resigned on Tuesday after nearly two decades at the helm of perhaps the world’s most important sports organization.

But while everyone is focusing on the overwhelming evidence of corruption within the organization, we just couldn’t let Blatter drift into obscurity without first recounting his many shortcomings throughout the years.

He suggested female athletes “play in more feminine clothes.”

In 2004, he offered a suggestion to boost the popularity of women’s soccer: “Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball. They could, for example, have tighter shorts.” More than a decade later, the women’s game is doing just fine without his knucklehead advice.

He noted women should talk as much at work as they do at home.

In 2013, he tipped the sexism meter to idiotic while boasting that three women out of 24 members then served on the executive committee. “We now have three ladies on the board,” he said. “Say something, ladies! You are always speaking at home. Now you can speak here.”

He said gay people shouldn’t have sex at the World Cup.

He’s stuck his foot in his mouth on other issues as well, like gay rights. After Qatar was awarded the World Cup for 2022, Blatter had this tip for gay fans visiting the country, knowing Qatar’s strict laws against homosexuality: “I’d say they should refrain from any sexual activities.”

He implied that Africans are less honest than Europeans.

Some might say he was racist, too: In 2006, he told an Italian newspaper that reported match-fixing in Italy’s soccer league would tarnish the game’s image. “I could understand it if it had happened in Africa,” he said, “but not in Italy.”

He said a simple handshake could cure racism.

Yet this is the same man who told CNN that racism in soccer could be cured with a handshake. Oh, wait, that was at the same time he said racism wasn’t a problem on the field at all. “There is no racism. There is maybe one of the players towards another — he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one.”

At the very least, he showed cluelessness.

While many believe the investigation into bribery, fraud and racketeering will eventually hit Blatter directly, we can perhaps all agree that he wasn’t running a tightest of ships.

In 2011, FIFA opened an investigation into its own organization. Surprise: it absolved Blatter of wrongdoing while conceding that he did have poor oversight in a bribery matter. The ethics committee didn’t make the 430-page report public, issuing a 42-page “executive summary” in 2014 instead.

He dismissed words to the wise.

He apparently wasn’t much of an advice-taker, either. In 2011, Blatter’s own commission of an independent study into reform at FIFA resulted in the recommendation that he have a system for “disclosing cash payments to officials.” According to the Wall Street Journal, he ignored it.

He said Russia’s World Cup could help peace.

Blatter seems to have a skewed view of diplomacy as well. He said in March that Russia hosting the World Cup in 2018 would stabilize the region. Right, ’cause the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi worked so well to bring peace to Ukraine.

He didn’t know a soccer star when he saw one.

The exiting soccer chief could be pretty oblivious too. U.S. national team star Alex Morgan said Blatter didn’t even recognize her at a 2013 banquet to award the FIFA Women’s Player of the Year. Morgan was one of the finalists. “Sepp Blatter didn’t know who I was,” she said. “That was pretty shocking.”

Soon enough, he won’t be your problem anymore, Alex. Oh, how the mighty has fallen.

Stage Door: Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy)


For Monty Python fans, Eric Idle is a wacky kind of genius.

A co-creator of Monty Python on TV and film, he also wrote the book and lyrics for the Tony-winning Spamalot, which ran nearly five years on Broadway. Inspired by his success, Idle turned to another Python favorite, The Life of Brian. Teamed with composer John Du Prez, the duo transformed it into a comic oratorio, aptly dubbed Not The Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy).

Operating on all cylinders, it recently blew Carnegie Hall audiences away.

It was performed by Idle, alongside several Broadway vets: Tony-winner Victoria Clark, Marc Kudish, Lauren Worsham and artist William Ferguson, who recently joined the Metropolitan Opera. Accompanied by the wonderful Collegiate Chorale, and a team of bagpipers, they made comic magic. The Chorale, which is noted for its eclectic repertoire — traditional to obscure works — is a key addition to any musical work. So is the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, which regularly collaborates with Carnegie Hall.

First performed in 2007 in Caramoor Center for Music and Arts in Westchester, New York, a time Idle refers to as “the halcyon days of the Bush Administration,” Not The Messiah boasts irreverent humor and an amazing score. The musical numbers rely on a range of genres — pop to gospel, country to classical.

The oratorio is based on “The Book of Brian,” the story of a young Judean during Roman rule. He is the wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Inexplicably, despite Brian Cohen’s protestations, he is mistaken for the Messiah. As history has made clear, that’s never a happy ending.

When Brian admonishes followers not to look to him, but have faith in themselves, he exclaims: “You’re all individuals!” They chorus: “We’re all individuals!” One of the best examples of mob-think ever. Throw in Python references to the dead parrot sketch, lumberjacks and hysterical songs like “We Love Sheep,” “What Have The Romans Ever Done For Us,” “Mrs. Betty Parkinson” and “The People’s Front of Judea” and the irreverence reaches its zenith.

Idle calls Not the Messiah “baroque-n-roll.” Audiences just call it terrific. If you missed the live show, take heart. It’s available on iTunes, Flixster and Netflix.

This Dog Is Battling Bone Cancer And Had His Leg Amputated, But He’s Still Loving Life

Life has not been easy for this pooch, but it hasn’t stopped him from living it up.

A short film uploaded to YouTube called “Tri-Pawed: Embracing Canine Osteosarcoma” chronicles the journey of Sheridan, a pup living with his owners, Morgan and Zack in Grenada as they attend veterinary school. In July, the beloved pooch was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, and needed his forelimb amputated. Despite his injury, the pup has maintained his lust for life.

Watch at the 4:04 mark as Sheridan runs around, enjoying the beach life on his three legs, splashing around in the pool and just being an all-around goofball.

The video goes on to explain that the canine has been undergoing chemotherapy, but is not expected to live for much longer. Even so, the clip’s description says it all — “For the time he has left, an excellent quality of life is what matters most.”

Tom Cruise Isn’t Jumping On Couches Anymore, He’s Hanging Off Planes

In case you didn’t know: Tom Cruise does his own stunts.

And for his latest trick, the 52-year-old actor — wearing a tailored gray suit and dress shoes — clings to the fuselage of an Airbus A400M as it soars 5,000 feet in the air, according to The Daily Mail. Why did he do this, you may ask? Well, for his most recent turn as spy Ethan Hunt in “Mission: Impossible 5,” of course.

Granted Cruise was strapped in with two safety harnesses as he flew over rural British airspace, but, come on, who allowed one of world’s most beloved and revered actors to do this? (We’d like to check their heart rate.)

It’s nothing new for the action star, though: Cruise dangled 1,700 feet from the side of the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, for 2011’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.”

“The reason that I do [the stunts] is, it’s a challenge, but it’s also a part of storytelling,” Cruise said during a press conference for “Ghost Protocol.” “It’s something that I do because I feel for the audience, that they’ll really enjoy it more if they see me doing it in the camera. And I think that it adds a wonderful element of storytelling and that’s really the reason why we push ourselves both in telling the story and in doing those things to make it as exciting for the audience as possible.”

Record Breaker – He is the Fittest Man in the World, and He’s Got 125 Records to Prove It

‘He’s the world’s fittest man it’s official.’ The Guardian He’s gone 110 rounds with 10 opponents to win the World Kumite Karate Boxing Championships.

There’s nobody as tough as Paddy Doyle! As a young man he was a hell-raiser. He would pick fights and get in trouble with the law. His competitive nature combined with a terrible rebellious streak threatened to tip Paddy over the edge. A chance purchase of The Guinness Book of Records spurred Paddy into action: he knew immediately that he could beat, hands down, many of the records listed. Paddy’s alter ego Iron Man’ was born. He channelled all of his destructive energy into becoming a winner. His record of achievement is awesome. To date, Paddy Doyle holds 125 national, European and world fitness and martial arts records. Some of the toughest records he has smashed are: 1303 back-of-hands press ups in one hour; a 50 mile run wearing a 40 lb back pack in 11 hours and 58 minutes and an incredible 5,000 sit ups with a 50 lb plate in five hours. This is the story of a man who is a true champion in both heart and mind, whose mental and physical determination to succeed have taken him from the back-streets of Birmingham to the brilliance of a world champion.

Brooks Wheelan Says He’s ‘Fired’ From ‘SNL’

Brooks Wheelan, one of six featured players hired by “Saturday Night Live” before the start of the show’s 39th season, will not return for Season 40. Wheelan tweeted the news on Monday:

When contacted by HuffPost Entertainment to confirm Wheelan’s ouster, an NBC representative said that neither the network nor show comment on casting changes. That “SNL” would see some turnover before its 40th season is no surprise: Back in June, executive producer Lorne Michaels told that cast adjustments were forthcoming.

“We’re still in the middle of rebuilding,” Michaels said. “So there will be changes this year.”

Wheelan was a stand-up comic before being hired by “SNL.” The 27-year-old was initially brought onto the show as a writer, but he became the sixth and final addition to the cast before the 39th season began. (Colin Jost and Sasheer Zamata were added as featured players during this past season.)

“Each step of the way I thought it was pretty neat that I had gotten this far, so I didn’t put too much pressure on myself in that way,” Wheelan told the Bellevue Reporter about auditioning for “SNL” in an interview published earlier this year. “As far as the audition itself, they saw me perform in Montreal, then in L.A., and then I auditioned on the stage where they shoot the show in New York. It was all scary, but I tried to [minimize that].”

During his stint as a “Saturday Night Live” featured player, Wheelan made a couple of appearances on Weekend Update. He recalled those moment and some of his other favorite memories in a video published by NBC at the close of the season.

As senior editor Mike Ryan pointed out, however, Wheelan’s last appearance on “SNL” might have foreshadowed his exit.

Jack Bauer Is Back and He’s a Jumpin’ Jack Flash!

Jack is back and he is a jumpin’ Jack flash as he sets up business on the streets of London. It has been four years since we have seen the adventures of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and his return has been more than overdue. To make it even better this return of Jack Bauer to the Fox Network for a twelve-hour series, also includes Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Audrey (Kim Raver) and James Heller (William Devane). Having those familiar faces back with Jack just warms the heart.

In this new adventure Jack thinks someone is going to try to assassinate the President of the United States, James Heller while he is on a diplomatic mission to London. He enlists Chloe to help him prevent this. While trying to be heroic Jack is chased by a group of American agents headed up by Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski) and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe).

It all means exciting, nail-biting tension is back on our TV screens. There are other shows which feature heroic missions with dauntless leading men but there is only one Jack Bauer. He’s the man who can evade every twist, recover from every wound, and do it all with charm. This is the role Sutherland was born to play and he makes the most of it.

All of the “24” trademarks are back including the ticking clock, the multiple split screens, and the pounding musical score. It only takes a few seconds into the first hour to know that everything good from the original series is back and in this new one. It remains to be seen if the romance between Jack and Audrey is still on the table since this time out she is married to her father’s Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan).

Still the important relationship has and always will be the friendship between Jack and Chloe. If she weren’t back in this new series there would be a gaping hole that couldn’t be filled. Chloe has been a fan favorite from the start and her quirky personality personifies the show.

So get ready to be royally entertained as Jack Bauer takes his show on the road to London. This locale gives a new boost to the series and gives us some new scenery to enjoy. That plus the basic concepts of the series make “24: Live Another Day” an old home week television treat. The series premieres on Monday, May 5 at 8PM on Fox.

Robin Thicke Says He’s Trying To Get Paula Patton Back

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton may have separated, but he’s not giving up.

The former high school sweethearts were married for nearly nine years before announcing their split on Feb. 24, and Thicke isn’t ready to let Patton go. Sources told Us Weekly that the “Blurred Lines” singer wanted to save the marriage, but Patton made the choice to end it.

Those claims appear to be true, as TMZ caught up with Thicke as he arrived in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Feb. 27, telling a cameraman, “I’m just trying to get her back.”

According to the website, the couple’s marriage began to fall apart after Thicke’s sexually charged performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs in August 2013. Sources say things soured because Patton felt “utterly disrespected” by the performance. And then came the cheating allegations.

While the pair reportedly remain cordial with one another, according to Us Weekly’s sources, Patton is “done with the marriage.”

Jim Gaffigan Goes On A Kale Rant On ‘Conan,’ And He’s Not Wrong

Between this and Jon Stewart’s incredible Chicago pizza rant, last night was a great one for food diatribes on late night TV. For anyone annoyed with the newfound popularity of kale and other healthy-yet-tasteless foods that dominate culinary trends, you have a prophet in Jim Gaffigan.

The “Dad is Fat” author stopped by “Conan” last night to express his displeasure that Whole Foods devotees are trying to force him to eat leafy vegetables that taste like bug spray. “I looked at a can of bug spray, and it said, ‘Made with real kale.'”

Check out the clip above to find out why he hates kale, almond milk and secretly thinks that people who don’t eat gluten are un-American.
