Jimmy Fallon Breaks down in tears during tonight show return

Jimmy Fallon returned to the Tonight Show on Monday night after losing his mother Gloria Fallon last month.

He paid tribute to her at the top of the show saying “As some of you know, my mother, Gloria, passed away recently. She was the best audience. She was the one I was always trying to make laugh. She was such a fan of the show, and everything I did.”

Fallon then broke down in tears telling a story about his mom holding his hand. Warning, you will cry. This is absolutely heartbreaking:




Liam Payne kills it at the EMA’s

Liam Payne gave a killer performance of Strip That Down at the EMAs last night. The former One Direction member sang live while serving slick dance moves (something most acts aren’t capable of doing these days).

Payne is the next Justin Timberlake. He has the vocals, swag and talent. Hopefully he’ll make smart career choices and reach his full potential.


Michael Buble announces first concert since sons cancer diagnosis

Buble is back!

Michael Buble is returning to the stage after taking a break to be there for his son Noah while he battled cancer. Noah’s cancer is now in remission and Buble is planning dates for 2018.

An announcement was posted this morning on Michael’s Facebook saying “Excited to announce that Michael will be headlining London’s British Summer Time at Hyde Park BST Hyde Park on Friday, July 13. This will be Michael’s only U.K. show in 2018, so you won’t want to miss it.”

He also announced an Ireland show in Croke Park in Dublin on July 7th of 2018.

I’m guessing these won’t be the only tour dates for Buble in 2018. Are you excited to have him back?



Buy or Sell – Rita Ora’s at the EMAs

Rita Ora hosted and performed at the EMA’s last night, but it’s her red carpet look that has people talking today.

The singer wore a white bathrobe and matching towel on her head. Her makeup and jewels were on point but the wardrobe choice is highly debatable.

Poppy’s Take: Buy! It’s fun, tongue-in-cheek and she looks fabulous! Totally appropriate for the European Music Awards.

What do you think? Buy or Sell????

Janet Jackson at the OUT100 gala

Ms. Jackson appeared ready to film an episode of Game of Thrones at the OUT100 gala on Thursday night. Janet’s a diva who can often go over the top but it somehow works. I’m not sure this works.

Poppy’s take: Sell. While I love a Jon Snow inspired outfit, this is too costumey. It looks clunky and dated with too many layers. I do however, like the braided hair!

What’s your take? Buy or Sell? Sound off in the comments.


Louis C.K. admits allegations are true in official statement

He’s officially canceled.

Louis C.K. just released a lengthy statement confirming the allegations in The New York Times story are true:

I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not.

These stories are true.  At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.   The power I had over these women is that they admired me.  And I wielded that power irresponsibly.

I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.

I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it.

There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for.  And I have to reconcile it with who I am.  Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.

I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work. 

The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else.  And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I’ve brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie and every other entity that has bet on me through the years.

I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.

I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want.  I will now step back and take a long time to listen.

Thank you for reading.

Barf. He’s only sorry that people know what a slimeball he is and that it’s negatively impacting his career. This wasn’t a one time thing and it’s not normal or acceptable behavior.


Jeremy Piven Wants to take a lie detector test to prove allegations against him are false

In an attempt to clear his name, Jeremy Piven is offering to take a lie detector test to prove the recent allegations of sexual assault are not true.

Piven has been accused by three different women of various offenses and he’s adamant that none of these things ever happened. Like most celebrities do these days, he decided to share a statement via social media

I think Piven and all of those claiming they’re being wrongly accused should take a lie detector test! If they didn’t do it and are telling the truth, why not? Of course people will argue the validity and accuracy, but if someone passes a lie detector test saying they didn’t assault someone, that works for me.

Would Piven passing a lie detector test prove his innocence?

Eminem drops new single featuring Beyonce

Guess who’s back? Back again? Shady’s back. Tell a friend…

Eminem dropped an emotional single this morning featuring none other than Queen B.

Walk on Water, the first single from Em’s upcoming album Revival is a somber song about trying and failing to meet expectations. Rick Rubin produced the track with Eminem sharing writing credits with Skylar Gray and Beyonce.

Like all tracks from Eminem, Walk on Water is brutally honest with lyrics exposing the rappers anxiety and insecurity that only someone whose been in the game as long as him could deliver. Beyonce’s hook is simple and understated, something we rarely hear from her. Overall, I like the song but I’m not sure it has the punch of Love the Way you Lie or Not Afraid.

What do you think?


Anderson Easts slams Garth Brooks for lip-syncing at the CMA’s

Miranda Lambert‘s boyfriend Anderson East just slammed Garth Brooks in a passionate Instagram post. In case you missed the Country Music Association Awards Monday night (you didn’t miss much), I’ll breakdown why East is so upset.

Brooks (who won the coveted Entertainer of the Year award) performed Ask Me How I Know during the broadcast. In a shocking move for country music fans, he lip-synced the awkward performance. To his credit, he admitted to lip-syncing offering the following explanation:

“We’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days,” Brooks said. “Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days. We did a game-time call on whether to sing the track or lip-sync, and decided to lip sync.”

The singer continued, “The voice just isn’t there anymore, and you want to represent country music as best you can.”

Anderson East wasn’t having it:

A post shared by Anderson East (@andersoneast) on

Here’s a clip of the performance:

I COMPLETELY agree with East. It’s not like Brooks was doing heavy dance choreography or something. If he can’t sing live for a few minutes at an awards show, then he shouldn’t be doing it. To add insult to injury, he then wins Entertainer of the Year!!

So country music give the Entertainer of the Year award to the only act of the night who lip-synced? Not a good look CMA’s.

*It’s worth noting, it’s next to impossible to find a working clip of the lip sync. Someone’s doing damage control.
