Francis Wayne Emmanuel Sinatra, AKA Frank Sinatra Jr., son of the late Frank Sinatra, died yesterday, March 16th 2016 of a heart attack.

Being the son of such an iconic entertainer, Frank Jr was famous for most of his life, and even became a well known musician, becoming a singer, songwriter and conductor.

Although Frank Sinatra Jr’s career was never as successful as his legendary father’s, Frank Jr. always remained proud of his family’s success, and understanding of the changing style of popular music. “I was trying to sell antiques to a modern appliance store.”

Frank Jr. will be missed by family, friends, and fans alike, and will be fondly remembered for his contributions to music.

Dr. Luke Denies Being Fired By Sony

DrLukeSony

 

Rumours broke yesterday that Sony Music ended their relationship with producer Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald AKA Dr. Luke, presumably over his alleged rape and abuse of Kesha.

The public has been outraged ever since the preliminary injunction was denied last month, leaving Kesha stuck in her contract with Sony Music, and forcing her to work Dr. Luke.

The #FreeKesha movement has been supported by millions of people, fans, and even several celebrities including Taylor Swift & Demi Lovato.

Social media was full of rejoice yesterday when the story broke that Dr. Luke had been fired by Sony, but Dr. Luke has been quick to shut down that story, claiming he has not been let go.

Dr. Luke continues to claim that Kesha, Kesha’s mother, and Kesha’s representation are fabricating these claims to slander his character and get her out of her contract.

Amid all sorts of confusing allegations & rumours, one thing is for sure: the whole truth of the relationship between Kesha & Dr. Luke has yet to be revealed.

Miley Cyrus’ Attempt At Shaming Jodie Sweetin Backfires

jodie

Child star Jodie Sweetin has been all over social media lately, in celebration of her return to television, both in the reboot Fuller House and Dancing With The Stars.

The thirty four year old star has been getting tons of positive feedback on her happy and healthy appearance, and her revival of beloved character Stephanie Tanner, but not all the comments are positive. Miley Cyrus posted a vulgar photograph of a past Sweetin partying, in an effort to cast shade on Sweetin’s new time in the light.

Sweetin has survived and recovered from severe drug addiction, leading all the way back to when she was fourteen years old and Full House ended. Since then, Jodie has written a book on her recovery, and even speaks at Universities about the trials of growing up on television, and how getting sober saved her life.

Considering Jodie Sweetin’s tough past and problems with substance abuse, it’s low of Miley to stoop to the level of bringing that up, especially when Jodie has made no effort to hide it, but even talks openly about her transformation.

When asked about the picture Sweetin showed how classy she truly is with the simple response “I don’t pay attention to negative stuff. I have so much good stuff going on in my life right now that I try not to pay attention….not worth it”.

Way to keep it classy Jodie!

New Evidence Discovered In OJ Simpson Case

Screen Shot 2016-03-04 at 1.57.15 PM

Forget about the glove, what’s going on with this knife?

LAPD has confirmed that there is a new piece of evidence in the OJ trial: a knife that was found buried under the Simpson estate.

The knife has been identified as a ‘folding buck knife’, a tool typically used for hunting, but which could definitely be used as a murder weapon.

The timeline becomes inconsistent from story to story, but the concensus is that the knife was first discovered years ago, possibly as long ago as 1998, by a construction worker, who gave it to a nearby off-duty cop. The cop, who remains nameless at this time,then decided to keep the knife as a souvenir, only admitting he had it recently, when he was looking to get it engraved with the official case number.

Officials were mortified that the officer had decided to keep this potentially damning evidence to himself, but have not pressed any charges against him at this time.
It has not been confirmed whether this new evidence could lead to a conviction, but the knife is being tested for blood and DNA of Nicole Brown Simpson and Orenthal James Simpson.

Zoe Saldana All Wrong For Nina Simone Biopic Says Simone Family

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 2.11.03 PM

 

The estate of the late legendary soul & jazz singer Nina Simone is furious over Zoe Saldana being cast as Nina Simone, saying Saldana looks nothing like the beloved singer.

According to sources, the estate, which runs the official Nina Simone twitter account, raged out at Saldana after she tweeted the following quote from Nina:

“I’ll tell you what freedom is to me – No fear…I mean really, no fear.”

Simone’s twitter responded harshly and quickly, shooting back:

“Cool story but please take Nina’s name out of your mouth. For the rest of your life.”

Simone’s family, friends & fans are upset over the fact that Zoe’s skin was darkened quite significantly, and she was given a prosthetic nose, just to look like remotely like Nina. Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 2.11.13 PM

With all the controversy over how white hollywood is, it does seem sad that a director would have to go to such extreme lengths to shape someone into Nina Simone, when there are so many talented African American actors who look much more like Nina Simone than Zoe Saldana does.

Tony Award winner Viola Davis, and the transcendent Uzo Aduba, from Orange Is The New Black, were both mentioned as better choices for the role of Nina.

There has been no word from Saldana, or her representation on the matter, and even though she can hardly be blamed for this upset, it seems better casting was in order.

Actor Abe Vigoda Left Out Of Oscar ‘In Memoriam Tribute’

abevigoda

Family, friends, and fans are livid over the academy’s decision to omit Abe Vigota from the “in memoriam” tribute during last night’s Oscars.

Abraham Charles “Abe” Vigoda, actor, comedian, and father died January 26th 2016 at the age of 94.

Abe Vigoda, best known for his role in The Godfather, began his career in theater, performing on broadway in the 1960’s, and going on to be in some of the most influential films of all time.

In 1982 People magazine accidentally referred to Abe as ‘the late Abe Vigoda’, mistakenly implying the actor was dead.  This mistake was taken in wonderful humour by Vigoda, and it lead to a running gag used by the comedian for many years.

The academy has responded to the issue by saying Abe was not included in the famous tribute because he passed so late in the year, dying on January 26th, however Alan Rickman, who died on January 14th was included.

Our thoughts go out to Abe Vigoda’s family & friends.
