Justin Bieber Unfollows Flody Mayweather on Instagram

Justin Bieber is distancing himself from the heavy weight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Bieber recently unfollowed Mayweather  on Instagram. Floyd wasn’t too happy and called the singer a traitor and many other things.

According to TMZ,  Biebers Hills Church advised him to distance himself from bad influences and apparently Floyd was the bad apple that had to go.

A source close to Bieber camp said:

” Justin didn’t want a clean break from Floyd, he just wanted to “reset boundaries” … walling himself off from things like Floyd’s obsession with strip clubs.”

“Justin unfollowed Floyd on Instagram as part of the resetting of boundaries, and our sources say Floyd went “insane, nuclear.” He lashed out at Justin, called him a “traitor” because Floyd had stuck with Justin during his meltdown when everyone was attacking Bieber.”

The friendship between Floyd and Justin is now over and we won’t be seeing Justin Bieber in the building for Saturday, August 26th fight between Flody and McGregor.

Jay Z denies that “Kill Jay Z” was meant to put Kanye on blast

Over the past year, it’s become obvious that Jay Z and Kanye West are no longer friends.  Kanye ranted about Jay at his shows last fall . . . then he left Tidal . . . and then Jay-Z put out the Kanye diss track  “Kill Jay Z”.

Well, in a new interview, Jay admits that his relationship with Kanye has gone south.  He denies that  “Kill Jay Z” was meant to put Kanye on blast . . . but he does confirm that Kanye “crossed a line.”

“What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it . . . we’ve gotten through bigger issues in the past.  But he brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me . . . and he knows it’s a problem.”

Kanye hasn’t responded, and he can be VERY volatile, but it sounds like Jay-Z could be open to a reconciliation.  He says, “We’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements . .

“And we’ve had many, because that’s who we are.  That’s what I like about him.  He’s an honest person.  He’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”

 

Eclipse Randoms: When’s the Next One, Why It’ll Make Animals Crazy, and More

The total solar eclipse is here, so here’s some last-minute random info, news, and stories for you . . .

1.  It’s been 38 years since the last total solar eclipse but, fortunately, if you miss it today, you won’t have to wait that long again.  The next time that America will be able to see a total solar eclipse is in seven years, on April 8th, 2024.

2.  One day far in the future, there won’t be any total solar eclipses, because the moon is drifting further and further from Earth.  It should happen in somewhere between 500 million and one billion more years.  So we’re still good.

3.  In the eastern parts of the country that are directly in the eclipse’s path, the amount of light they get will be similar to the amount of sunlight Neptune gets every day.  In the west, it’ll be like the amounts of sunlight Saturn gets every day.

4.  Animals could go NUTS during the eclipse.  According to zoo experts, nocturnal animals like owls could wake up and start looking for food . . . elephants will freak out and make a bunch of noise . . . and armadillos could JUMP three to four feet in the air, which is something they do when they’re scared.

5.  If you’re stuck inside, NASA will be doing a massive livestream during the entire eclipse from 12:00 to 4:00 P.M. Eastern so you can experience it, at  nasa.gov.

There’s a rumor going around that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift will finally end their feud at the “VMAs”

There’s a rumor going around that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift  will finally end their feud at the  “VMAs”.  Katy is hosting the show and performing.  She’ll probably do  “Swish Swish”, which is kind of a Taylor diss track.

But in recent performances, she’s actually softened the lyrics so it’s not as cutting.  And also, she has said publicly she’s ready to bury the hatchet.  And then there’s this:  On Friday, Taylor pretty much purged all her social media accounts.

She didn’t leave much up, but someone noticed that for a little while over the weekend, she was actually following Katy on Twitter.

You Can Now See Unlimited Movies in the Theater for $10 a Month

MoviePass is a service that’s been around for a few years now, where you pay a monthly flat rate, and then you can go to see as many movies in the theater as you want.

And yesterday, MoviePass slashed its monthly cost from $50 to just $9.95.  So, you can see as many movies as you want for roughly the cost of ONE ticket.  Or LESS than one ticket in a lot of areas.

There are a few minor catches.  You can only go to one movie per day, and it doesn’t include premium theaters like IMAX and 3-D.  Also, not EVERY theater accepts MoviePass, although the company says 91% of them DO.

Don’t even think about pirating the Mayweather/McGregor Fight

They thought they were slick … dozens of websites aiming to livestream the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight for free.

But Showtime is stopping the potential pirates with a big, fat lawsuit.

The network is ripping a page from the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao playbook — where they scouted out a bunch of potential illegal streaming sites and hit ’em with a legal blow before the fight.

There’s obviously a TON of cash on the line — some say the fight could bring in more than $500 MILLION … so, they are not looking to let anyone skim from their pockets.

In the suit, filed in federal court, Showtime is asking a judge to issue an injunction to block the sites from streaming the August 26 fight — and they’ll probably get it.

Production on “Deadpool 2” was shut down yesterday after a stuntwoman was killed in a motorcycle accident on the set

Her name was  Joi Harris, and she was considered the first African-American female professional road racer.  This was her first movie as a stunt performer, but she was an experienced motorbike racer.

She’d been rehearsing the stunt throughout the weekend, and had done several perfect takes yesterday.  But on the last one, she lost control, and the motorcycle crashed.  She was thrown from the bike . . . through a building window.

She wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time, because the character she was playing isn’t wearing one in the scene.  She’s was doing the stunt as Domino, who’s played by Zazie Beetz in the movie.

Ryan Reynolds Tweeted, “We’re heartbroken, shocked, and devastated . . . my heart pours out to family and loved ones.”

It’s unclear how long production will be held up.  Earlier this year, a stuntman was killed on the set of  “The Walking Dead”, when he fell off a balcony.

 

 

Taylor Swift wins Her Lawsuit for $1

Taylor Swift won her countersuit against David Mueller, the former DJ who felt her booty during a meet-and-greet four years ago.

Sooo, yesterday Swift won her counterlawsuit… for $1. This was a symbolic lawsuit, not for the money, but to show the world women will not tolerate sexual abuse in any form.

So now the DJ owes Taylor Swift one dollar.

After the verdict, Taylor released this  statement:  Quote, “I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society, and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this.

“My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard.”
