David Letterman was greeted with an extended standing ovation during his final episode as host of the Late Show. During a self-deprecating monologue, Letterman joked that his next gig will be as the "new face of Scientology."

“Grey's Anatomy” saved a lady’s life! The 35-year-old woman noticed lumpiness in her breasts after giving birth to her third child two years ago, and a doctor told her it was caused by breast milk. Six months later the lumps were still there and that’s when she watched the 'Grey's' episode where Dr. Miranda Bailey treats a young mother with breast cancer after her lumps were initially mistaken for breast milk. She called the doctor the next day and they determined she had cancer. The woman had surgery and six months of chemo.... and she is now cancer free. Full story HERE.

Liam Payne confirmed that Zayn Malik quit One Direction for his fiancee, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Payne was on an English radio show yesterday and, when asked why Malik left the band, he said, "He wanted to go and spend some time with his family and missus." Payne said he missed Malik, but noted, "I mean, you know, he had to do what he had to do, really for himself." He added that being in One Direction is "like any other job really, sometimes you have to move on because you're not enjoying what you're doing as much." Right after Malik quit in March, many fans began to compare Edwards to Yoko Ono, who's been blamed for breaking up The Beatles because of her relationship with John Lennon. But there are no hard feelings anymore, said Payne. He told the radio hosts, "We wish [Zayn] all the best with whatever he goes into and stuff. We'll just have to see what happens."
Remember we told you people were mad at Beyonce because they thought she dumped $20,000 champagne in a hot tub in her “Feeling Myself” video with Nicki Minaj? Well, it was more like $300 champagne. The image going around showing a $20,000 price tag is photoshopped. The photo was taken from Forbes’ 2014 list of the most expensive champagnes. More HERE.
A federal judge issued an arrest warrant for Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis.

We knew this was coming… Kanye West blasted the Billboard Music Awards after Sunday's heavily censored performance. While they were explicit lyrics, West's camp is upset over how the performance was broadcast. In a statement, a rep says, "Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. Non-profane lyrics such as 'with my leather black jeans on' were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented." "It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against," continues the statement. "Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned." West was also hardly visible due to lighting design and smoke effects. His camp says the production team messed up that, too.
Beyonce caused outrage on Tuesday for pouring a $20,000 bottle of Ace of Spades champagne into a hot tub in the "Feeling Myself" video. Beyonce and Nicki Minaj released the video on Monday, but now fans are upset that the singer wasted the expensive bottle, noting that what she allegedly spent for it could have been used to help a lot of people in need. "Even just $1000 could have completely changed someone's life you know? Like a chance at college or maybe finally being able to eat lunch," wrote one Twitter user. Some fans stood up for Beyoncé, pointing out she has done a lot for the less fortunate. One person tweeted, "well, the other day she visited Haiti because she wanted to learn more about humanitarian activities." Sell all the hub bub HERE.
Why is it so hard for publications to respect that I would like the identity of my child kept private for safety reasons? Pls honor that.— ashton kutcher (@aplusk) May 19, 2015

Emails published by the New York Times Monday indicate that Hillary Clinton used more than one private email address during her time as secretary of state, contradicting previous claims from her office. And now, new documents obtained by Judicial Watch and made public yesterday show that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior officials under President Obama were given intelligence within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack describing how it had been planned at least 10 days in advance “to kill as many Americans as possible.” The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings.” More HERE. And HERE.

There’s a new theory that Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video is a rip off of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” video. Here’s the comparison breakdown!
And The Washington Post decided to publish a think piece about how “Bad Blood” is clearly about Katy Perry. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor confessed it was inspired by a female musical artist who’d “basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour” (a bunch of Taylor’s backup dancers on her “Red” tour were allegedly poached by Perry for her “Prism” tour). Taylor said: “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Taylor also said: “She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational—you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.” Oh, and there’s a line in “Bad Blood” referencing “Ghost,” a song sung by Perry that was co-written by Max Martin, who also co-wrote “Bad Blood.” More HERE.
BTW…Taylor tops the Maxim Hot 100 list for 2015. When asked how it feels to be named number one, Swift said: "It's really nice and such an incredible compliment. This year has been my favorite year of my life so far." She added, "I got to make an album exactly the way I wanted to make it. I got to put it out exactly the way that I dreamed of putting it out. Every one of these kinds of whims and ideas came to fruition..."
BBTW...Taylor's brother Austin is having a pretty good time too!
There’s some new video of Jennifer Lopez had her head buried in her smartphone while Mariah Carey was performing at the Billboard Music Awards. While Mariah was singing "Infinity", J. Lo was scrolling through her phone, barely even glancing at the stage. When the house lights went up, she applauded Mariah’s performance. See the video HERE.
Some of you may remember a few months ago my dear blow fish Pablow past away. I wrote this song for him...He made me so happy and I miss him everyday.... But now he is with Floyd and Melanie's sweet SadiePosted by Miley Cyrus on Monday, May 18, 2015
Speaking of awkward, Miley Cyrus performed a song about her dead blowfish, Pablow, during her latest Happy Hippy backyard music session. Miley sang about how she never thought she could love something she’d never touched. The death of Pablow hurt her so much she that she couldn’t eat sushi afterward. Miley plays the keyboard and teared up at the end of the song.
Last night, About Bruce Part 2 aired and Kim asked Bruce about surgery plans and whether he’d date women. Bruce said there was no plans to remove “that little thing down there”, and that he wasn’t going to date. Kim also told “Access Hollywood” that she recently met Bruce’s female persona, and that she looked beautiful and comfortable with herself. More HERE.
We love Chris Pratt. He gets real in the new issue of GQ about feeling invisible early on in his career next to his wife Anna Faris. "I've had those moments where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just looked right through me," says Pratt, adding, "And, you know, actors came up and blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and didn't even look at me. I'm like 'What the f*ck, dude?'" Pratt says he still remembers which actors used to hit on Faris in front of him, and jokingly says he hopes they "f*cking audition for Guardians of the Galaxy," in which he stars as lead character Peter Quill. Now, notes Pratt, producers often come up to him and "treat me the same way that they were treating Anna," and say things like, "'I always knew...' I'm like, 'Is that right? That's interesting, because you f*cking stared right through me the last time.'" More HERE.
Does Iggy Azalea look different to you? At the Billboard Music Awards she mentioned an "image overhaul" to E! News, and that may be putting it lightly. Iggy reportedly went under the knife to get a nose job and chin implant. She apparently got the procedures done just a few months after opening up about her breast augmentation. A source said, "She loves the results! She wasn't happy with her nose for a long time, so after the boobs she wanted to get that taken care of and then got the chin done at the same time." FYI… it's very possible that her facial differences could be from contouring. See pics and be the judge HERE.
Good news…Drake and Diddy are not feuding anymore after they talked on the phone. The main factor for coming to an agreement was money. The two were going to cross paths at festivals, holiday parties and award shows this summer so they decided it was best to squash their beef. The feud started last December when Diddy punched Drake outside a Miami nightclub.
The 2015 Billboard Music Awards were held on Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.Taylor Swift took home eight awards after kicking off the show with the world premiere of the star-studded video for her latest 1989 single "Bad Blood." Speaking of, a TON of her celebrity friends were in the video even if just for a split second…Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Zendaya, Lily Aldridge, Jessica Alba, Ellie Goulding, Hayley Williams, Cindy Crawford and Ellen Pompeo…just to name a few. You saw Taylor a lot…dancing in the aisles with her girlfriends, and smooches and lingering hugs with Calvin Harris as she accepted her awards.

Before heading to Vegas for the BBMA's, she saw her brother Austin graduate from Notre Dame!
Not everybody was loving Taylor this weekend though…she ticked off fans from around the world when she pulled the plug on a livestream of her Rock in Rio in Vegas concert at the very last minute Friday night. Yahoo! Music made a big deal that it would livestream the entire concert, including Taylor's set. But just before Taylor went on, she had a change of heart and nixed the livestream. Fans were irate, some stayed up all night so they could watch her sing. More HERE.
The Edge fell off the edge of the stage during U2's tour opening concert.
Louis CK is being criticized for his opening monologue on the finale of SNL's 40th season—making light of racism, child molestation, and the Israel-Palestine conflict. "Child molesters are very tenacious people," he joked. "From their point of view, it must be amazing to risk so much!" He went on to describe himself as suffering from "mild racism:" "If I go to a pizza place I've never been to before and it's run by four black women, I'll go, 'Hmm,'" he said. And he compared himself to America while his daughters, always fighting, are like Israel and Palestine. The audience appeared shocked at times, while Twitter was divided and some critics are a bit ruffled. "It's my last show probably," quipped Louis. But not everyone was bothered. "Seriously Louis CK just made child molester jokes funny," tweeted one watcher. More HERE.
Janet Jackson announced in a video that she will release a new album and do a world tour this year.

Lindsay Lohan says she will flee the US for Monaco before being sent to jail. She has a May 28th deadline to complete her community service hours and if she doesn’t she's been told she's going to jail. Sources say she’s told friends and family if she doesn't finish the hours in time, she won't go back to California for her court hearing. Allegedly, Lohan says a very rich friend has a hotel in Monaco and has offered her the chance to stay there indefinitely… and she'll take him up on the offer rather than go to jail.

Actress/'SNL' comedian Maya Rudolph sang Beyonce’s hits “Single Ladies” and “Drunk in Love” during her commencement speech at Tulane University over the weekend. Rudolph offered the graduates advice with the biggest tip being to see where a simple “yes” can take you. Her speech also included an impression of Oprah Winfrey and joked she looked online at other commencement speeches for inspiration. Rudolph ended her speech with an over-the-top version of the National Anthem.
Matthew McConaughey delivered a commencement speech at the University of Houston Friday evening. Some reports say the speech got a little weird at times as the actor recalled a time in his life he played bongos in his “birthday suit,” and said “an honest man’s pillow is his peace of mind.” More HERE.
Speaking of Matthew, his latest movie 'The Sea of Trees' co-starring Naomi Watts was booed at the Cannes Film Festival. When asked about the movie’s negative reception over the weekend, Matthew said, "All right, all right, all right. Anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate." Matthew brushes of his critics, saying, "I get to wake up next to someone who I know loves me the way she does - my wife - who gave birth to our three beautiful, healthy children.” He added, “I get to live in a nice place, and I have things to look forward to every day - work, play, and sometimes nothing at all.”
Mama June has plans to get lap band surgery to help her lose weight. The 'Honey Boo Boo' star says she is so inspired by her recent 45-pound weight loss, that she wants to lose another 50 with help from the Lap-Band. June currently weighs in at 276 pounds, so if she achieves her gastric goal she'll go down to 226 pounds. June made the decision to go under the knife because she says she's plateaued with her trainer and her relatively healthy diet. She'll reportedly have the surgery this summer. More HERE.
B.B. King, the most recognized blues musician of the modern era, has died at age 89.
The engineer of the Amtrak train that derailed Tuesday night, killing eight, remembers driving the train to the general crash area in Philadelphia, but he doesn't remember the crash itself, his attorney says. Brandon Bostian, 32, does remember being banged around in the crash and ultimately regaining consciousness and calling 911, but he has "no explanation" for what caused the accident, his lawyer says, adding that the Queens resident had "no health issues to speak of" before the crash and was not taking any medication. The train was going over 100 miles per hour going into the turn before the derailment, and the mayor of Philadelphia calls his driving “reckless.” Eight people died in the crash and over 200 were injured.
The White House was put on lockdown yesterday after a guy tried to fly a drone over the White House property. No word on why he was flying it by the White House, but he was detained by the Secret Service for questioning. President Obama was at Camp David at the time, so he wasn’t in any danger. More HERE.
Tom Brady appealed his four-game suspension over under-inflated footballs with about an hour to spare before yeterday's 5pm deadline. The NFL Players Association filed the paperwork on his behalf. The Patriots, meanwhile, issued a detailed rebuttal to the league report on the scandal, saying its conclusions are "at best, incomplete, incorrect and lack context." One notable part: Referring to texts between team employees Jim McNally and John Jastremski, the Patriots say there's no proof they were talking about deflating footballs. Instead, McNally's "deflator" nickname referred to weight loss, says the team: "Mr. Jastremski would sometimes work out and bulk up—he is a slender guy and his goal was to get to 200 pounds. Mr. McNally is a big fellow and had the opposite goal: to lose weight. 'Deflate' was a term they used to refer to losing weight."
George Stephanopoulos is engaging in damage control after acknowledging that he donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation but didn't disclose that fact - even while reporting on the foundation in his capacity as an anchor at ABC News. The first hit: He is bowing out of ABC's Republican debate. "I'm sorry because I don't want anything to compromise my integrity or the standards of ABC News," he said. Republicans in particular have long accused Stephanopoulos—who moderates Sunday's This Week program—of a bias going back to his days as an aide to Bill Clinton. ABC is not taking disciplinary action.
George Clooney handcuffed himself to David Letterman last night saying he couldn’t go…

Murray, who was Letterman's first guest on "Late Night"'s debut back on Feb. 1, 1981, will then stop by on May 19. More HERE.
One Direction stopped by the Late Late Show with James Corden…and Louis talked about the Twitter feud with Zayn. He said Twitter is great to connect with fans and sometimes you say things that shouldn't be said. But they are good terms now.
And then they played some Dodgeball.

Boo and Pistol boarded a private jet back to the U.S. yesterday, meaning they will not be euthanized on Saturday as the country's Minister for Agriculture had threatened to do.

The song “American Oxygen” by Rihanna is one of her biggest flops and now her fans are asking President Obama for help. The much-hyped single was at number 91 last week on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, and it’s expected to fall off the charts this week. Her previous single, “B***h Better Have My Money,” also flopped, and her fans say they’re angry and think racism, not quality, is preventing Rihanna from scoring a hit. They’ve started a petition asking Obama to force radio stations to play “American Oxygen,” saying stations have “no problem playing the new song from Britney Spears because of her white privilege. They also play songs by that old white hag Sia..” More HERE.

CBS announced Wednesday that Bradley Cooper will have a recurring role in the network's TV adaptation of his 2011 movie, Limitless. In the original film, Cooper played a struggling writer who developed super-human abilities thanks to a mysterious drug called NZT, which turned out to have deadly side effects. The series takes a more TV-friendly approach to the story: A man named Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) discovers the brain-boosting power of NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Cooper will reprise his role from the film as Edward Mora, who's now a senator and presidential hopeful. Mora is still a regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé—Finch. Cooper was originally supposed to be a guest star in the pilot, but will recur on the series beyond the first episode.

Remember the one time we told you Lindsay Lohan had to finish her community service at a daycare? It’s not going well…she didn’t show up for her first day. She’s got to squeeze in serve 115 hours of community service by May 28th. Lohan, who has lived in London since last year to perform in a play, landed in New York on Tuesday afternoon, forcing school officials at Duffield Children's Center to fumble for excuses to explain her absence on her first day of class. The tardiness left a source familiar with Lohan's predicament "speechless," especially considering Lohan claimed she was "home in nyc" in social media posts Monday—even though she was most likely still in London. She's expected to pick up the slack and begin work today.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers flubbed the final question BUT.... was the big winner on last night's episode of "Celebrity Jeopardy!", coming out on top against retired astronaut Mark E. Kelly (Gabrielle Giffords' husband) and "Shark Tank" investor Kevin O'Leary. He did miss this question though…the category was "Business" and the answer was, "These 2 American businessmen are seen in early 20th century photos."
He later tweeted: "Had a blast on @Jeopardy checking off another bucket list item. Should have said turd ferguson on final jeopardy though. #maccfundwins," referencing "Burt Reynolds'" alter ego on those SNL "Celebrity Jeopardy" sketches. He walked away with $50,000 for his charity, the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) Fund.
Adam Sandler performed a musical ode to David Letterman last night…
Shocker…the reason Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods broke up…is Tiger cheated. It was apparently a one night stand with someone a friend described as nameless and faceless. It happened after a particularly bad loss in Southern California and as we well know now…that’s his way of dealing with it. Tiger tends to pay escorts for the special time but this time he and the girl were seen together. He confessed the cheating to Lindsey after it happened but she wasn't willing to put up with it.

Emilia Clarke claimed in a new interview that Jay Z supposedly bought one of the coveted dragon eggs featured on Game of Thrones for Beyonce. "Apparently Jay Z bought one for Beyoncé, or something," Clarke told Harper's Bazaar in its June 2015 issue. "I don't know." Clarke — who plays one of the many claiming to be the rightful heir to the Westeros throne and true mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen in the fantasy series — also wanted an egg of her own. "They are really, really, really expensive and they are really f---ing heavy," she told the mag, "and serious works of art."
Third Eye Blind decided to cover Beyonce and Drake's song, "Mine". Warning: NSFW words.

David Schwimmer has been cast to play Robert Kardashian in the Fox series American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, and he's been getting the lowdown on the late attorney straight from Kardashian's former wife, Kris Jenner. The two split three years before the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. 'I thought, "Who better to tell me who Robert was as a husband and a father than her?'" And it's been a very exciting process so far,' Schwimmer said during a Fox presentation in NYC. Kris was married to Kardashian for 13 years and, of course, had four children with him - Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. He died of cancer in 2003 at the age of 59. Cuba Gooding Jr will play OJ and his 'dream team' of lawyers will also include John Travolta as Robert Shapiro and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular 2015 NFL season over Deflategate-- the use of deflated footballs in the AFC Championship game. The Patriots have been fined $1 million and will lose their first round pick in 2016 and a fourth round pick in 2017. The two equipment staffers who allegedly carried out the plan were suspended indefinitely. Brady said he didn’t know of the plan to deflate the footballs but the Ted Wells report that was released last week said he was "generally aware" of what happened. Football insiders believe Brady will likely appeal and win. Adrian Peterson won his suspension, as did Ray Rice, as did the Saints players who were penalized for the team’s bounty program. Those men all committed much worse acts, and there was more clear evidence in all three cases, yet the NFL’s punishment was eventually overruled by judges who were truly independent — unlike the NFL-funded Wells team. Insiders predict, in the end, there will not be a four-game suspension. It might get cut down to fewer games, or it might get eliminated altogether.

For some reason, An Australian website, Max TV, recently suggested that Guns ‘N Roses ripped off “Sweet Child O’ Mine”. Here's the deal ... a group called Australian Crawl recorded and released a hit song called, "Unpublished Critics" in 1981. 'Sweet Child' didn't come out until 1987. For the record ... Axl Rose, Slash, and Izzy Stradlin have a very detailed story about how they created 'Sweet Child' -- and it doesn't include listening to Aussie top 40 radio. Full story HERE.
And also for some reason, somebody edited together almost 4 minutes of Michael Jackson’s famous grunts…and it’s fantastic.

I knew American Idol would never last without me #CANCELLED— brian dunkleman (@briandunkleman) May 11, 2015
Ryan Seacrest shared his thoughts about the cancellation of American Idol, after FOX announced that the singing competition show will come to an end after its fifteenth and final season in 2016. Seacrest has been the show's host since it debuted in 2002. In a statement, he said, American Idol has been a big part of my life for so long. It's frankly hard to imagine [my life] without it. It's been a remarkable journey, and I feel very fortunate to have been part of a show that made television history in countless ways. It's a show about chasing and fulfilling dreams, and truth be told, it helped some of my own dreams come true too." Producer Nigel Lythgoe said Idol “uplifted the music industry, but Mariah & Nicki were a mistake. Mariah and Nicki was just crazy, and then it really started becoming about the judges and took away from the contestants altogether. I think that was a major failing on the part of casting to have those two together. On their own, either one may have been successful." Nigel executive produced the show from season one through seven, then sat out seasons eight and nine, and returned for seasons 10, 11 and 12. He says he agrees with the decision to pull the plug, "It's the right thing to do." It’s about preserving the legacy of the show. In the meantime, Fox has set a premiere date of January 24th 2016 for The X-Files limited television event series.
Fox’s show “Empire” will feature guest appearances by Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Ne-Yo and Alicia Keys during its second season. Ne-Yo will also write original music for the show. The second season will consist of 18 episodes, an increase from season one that had 12. The show will air on Wednesday’s at 9 pm. this fall.

For some reason, somebody thought it would be a good idea to let Lindsay Lohan finish the remainder of her community service at a daycare. She’ll finish out working at Duffield Children's Centre in Brooklyn, New York, before the May 28th deadline or face jail time. Sources from the centre say Lohan is ''ready to help'' and will participate in a range of activities, including administrative work, arts and crafts and reading with the kids. This was all from a reckless driving case in 2012. Lindsay will have to work seven hours a day for seven days a week in order to finish by the deadline. The problem is that a hearing previously stated she could only undertake four hours of voluntary work a day.

At a previously scheduled Q&A session last night at Salem State University, Tom Brady said he was still closely reviewing an NFL investigation's conclusions that he was aware of the 'Deflategate' wrongdoing and wanted to withhold commenting directly until the process was complete. He was asked how he was dealing with the controversy, and said he accepts his role as a public figure and was fortunate to be surrounded by support and love. On whether this has detracted from the joy of winning the 2015 Super Bowl, he said , "Absolutely not... We earned and achieved everything that we got this year as a team. I'm proud of that and our fans should be too." As far as his endorsement deals…no word yet on if any will drop him over this.

Colbert says the money is from auctioning the set of his former show, along with matching funds from the Morgridge Family Foundation and ScanSource. "Enjoy your learning, South Carolina," he says. As for the projects being funded, "I think it's generally extra things, but to be honest with you, in some situations it could be basic-type things that the students need where the district just hasn't been able to fund it," says the state's school chief.

Chris Brown who'd spent the past two days celebrating his birthday in Las Vegas, had just returned to his California home when he discovered that a 21-year-old woman had been camping out at his house. When Chris and his security team walked in the house, they saw women’s clothes thrown on the floor, a giant spray-painted "I LOVE YOU" splashed across his kitchen counter….and then found her naked sleeping in his bed. The police believe she might have been staying at Brown's house for a few days because there were dishes in Brown's sink and left over food lying around. Cops further say the woman had spray painted the words "MRS. BROWN" on the singer's black Range Rover and also on his silver Rolls Royce. See the pic of the chick HERE.

Tom Brady was likely "aware of the inappropriate activities" involving the deflated footballs from last season, according to a new report. Brady has denied altering the air pressure of the balls or having any knowledge of tampering. In addition, the investigation concluded "It was more than probable" that a locker room attendant and an equipment assistant had made a "deliberate effort to release air" from the game balls. Following the release of the findings, Patriots owner Robert Kraft fired back at the report, saying he's "disappointed in its findings." And while Kraft noted he would "accept the findings of the report and take the appropriate actions based on those," he strongly added that he felt there was no "hard evidence of deliberate deflation of footballs at the AFC Championship game." The NFL is said to be considering disciplining Brady, and the two employees for their "probable" involvement. More HERE.

Kutcher expressed in the video, "I think everybody has a place in their life that they call home that sort of has that feeling of home" adding, "And no matter where you go in the world or what you see or what you do, when you think of the word 'home,' you're drawn to a specific place in your mind."
Floyd Mayweather has been sued by his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, stemming from him recently claiming he had to "restrain" her while she was "on drugs" during their 2010 fight, which ultimately landed him behind bars. Harris, the mother of three of Mayweather's kids, says he lied about her to shift the focus and people's perception of him before his match with Manny Pacquiao. Harris says her reputation has now been hurt, so she wants $20 million. In an interview Mayweather did with Katie Couric in April, ahead of his fight with Pacquiao, he claimed he didn't "stomp" or "beat" Harris, and that all he did was "restrain a woman that was on drugs." That's not what the court felt, and Mayweather spent two months in jail. According to Harris' new lawsuit, Mayweather's remarks to Couric were "fabricated in order to hype Mayweather's upcoming fight with Pacquiao, to avoid bad press by deflecting responsibility for beating the mother of his children."
Two people in Las Vegas have filed a $5 million lawsuit against Manny Pacquiao, his managers and promoters for not revealing his shoulder injury he had during his fight against Mayweather.

When he recovers, Mayweather wants a rematch.

His travels led him to work for the Empire, collaborate with Darth Vader and take assignments from figures such as Jabba the Hutt, for whom he once captured Han Solo. The first standalone anthology film will be "Star Wars: Rogue One," following a group of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. BTW…General Mills is introducing a new, permanent, Star Wars cereal based on Lucky Charms.
Fox has given The Simpsons, already the longest-running scripted prime time series of all time, a two-season renewal.

To put the record-breaking run of the show in perspective, but consider this: It would take you 12 days (including commercial breaks) to watch all 574 episodes through this current season.
