A musical based on Michael Jackson is in development, and it’s on track to make a Broadway premiere in 2020.

There aren’t many details . . . but it’s probably safe to assume that the production will focus on his music career, not the child sex abuse allegations.  Especially since his estate is involved.

His music WILL be included . . . but there isn’t any confirmation on what songs they’re using, or how they’ll be used.

Fran Drescher Is Threatening to Bring Back “The Nanny”

There’s a lot of annoying stuff happening in the world these days, and Fran Drescher apparently thinks we can tolerate MORE, because she’s threatening to bring back  “The Nanny”.

She’s been  talking about it for a while now, but in a new interview with  “Entertainment Tonight”, she hinted that she’ll have some “big news” to reveal soon.

The whole interview was basically about  “The Nanny”, and she said, quote, “Our [revival] would be the same characters 20 years later.  We can’t just pick up where we left off.  But in a way, that could be really good, because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it.”  Hypothetically, of course.

Cam Newton Lost His Cool at Some Hecklers at a High School Camp

Cam Newton lost his cool at some hecklers . . . during a HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CAMP in Florida.  And, of course, someone got video.

To be fair, the kids weren’t exactly respectful.  One of them said “Can I get a fumble?”, and another kid asked, “What happened in the Super Bowl?”

Those were references to the 2016 Super Bowl, which the Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos.  Cam was sacked six times and fumbled twice during that game.  One kid even asked him if he wished Broncos defender Von Miller a happy Father’s Day, which is a pretty sick burn.

Cam told one of the kids, quote, “Don’t try that [stuff] with me, little boy.”  When the kid said something back, Cam got in his face and said, quote, “You’ll do what?” . . . then walked away.

Rapper XXXTentacion Was Shot Dead in Miami

Rapper XXXTENTACION was shot and killed in Miami yesterday.  He was leaving a motorcycle dealership in his car when two men approached, and at least one of them opened fire.  He was only 20 years old.  His real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.

The two men fled in an SUV, and there aren’t any suspects yet.  Police believe it may have been a robbery.

XXXTentacion began his rise to fame in 2015, when he uploaded the track  “Look At Me!” to SoundCloud.  His album “?” debuted at #1 when it came out this past March.

But he was known as much for his legal issues as his music.  His rap sheet includes arrests for gun possession, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend.

Still, the rap community was sad to see him go. Kanye West  Tweeted, “Rest in peace.  I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here.  Thank you for existing.”

And J. Cole said, “This got me [effed] up . . . [He had] enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person.  God bless his family, friends and fans.”

Not long ago, XXXTentacion posted a video where he talked about the possibility that he’ll die young, and what he hopes his legacy will be.  He said, quote, “If I’m going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me.”

Chris Pratt Unveiled Nine Awesome Rules for the Next Generation at the “MTV Movie & TV Awards”

The  “MTV Movie & TV Awards” aired last night, and Chris Pratt stole the show when he accepted the annual Generation Award . . . by laying out NINE RULES for the next generation.  Here they are, word-for-word:

1.  “Breathe.  If you don’t, you’ll suffocate.”

2.  “You have a soul, be careful with it.”

3.  “Don’t be a turd.  If you’re strong, be a protector, and if you’re smart, be a humble influencer.

“Strength and intelligence can be weapons, and do not wield them against the weak . . . that makes you a bully.”

4.  “When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger.  They won’t even know they’re eatin’ the medicine.”

5.  “Doesn’t matter what it is.  Earn it.”

“A good deed.  Reach out to someone in pain.  Be of service.  It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”

6.  “God is real, God loves you, God wants the best for you.  Believe that.  I do.”

7.  “If you have to poop at a party but you’re embarrassed because you’re gonna stink up the bathroom, just do what I do and lock the door, sit down, get all the pee out first, OK?

“And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom!  You minimize the amount of time that the poop is touching the air, because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top, then it’s stirring up.

“The poop particles create a cloud, it goes out, then everyone in the party will know that you pooped . . . Just trust me, it’s science.”

8.  “Learn to pray.  It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.”

9.  “Nobody is perfect.  People are gonna tell you you’re perfect just the way you are, you’re not!  You are imperfect, you always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way.

“And if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace.  And grace is a gift.

“And like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood.  Do not forget it.  Don’t take it for granted.  God bless you, please get home safely.”

Kim Kardashian Wants To Be A Lawyer

If you didn’t already believe we’re living in BIZARRE WORLD, then you haven’t been paying attention to what’s been going on with Kim Kardashian.

Lately she’s been working with the White House as the voice and face of criminal justice reform, and being named one of the most influential people by  “Time” magazine.

Whether you agree with it or not, she’s about nine-tenths of the way to being LEGIT.  She’s even besties now wit Van Jones from CNN.  And in a new interview with him, she talked about starting a career in LAW.

She said, quote, “If there wasn’t the long college process, I would be an attorney.  But I researched that in the state of California I could assist an attorney for three years and just take the bar.  So you never know.”

That led to Van asking Kim if she would ever run for office.  She doesn’t seem to be anywhere near that headspace, but she did say, quote, “I guess never say never. But . . . that’s not where I am.  I just want to help one person at a time.”

Father’s Day is on Sunday.  Here are six things you probably don’t know about the holiday . . . 

1.  It’s written as Father’s Day . . . with the apostrophe after the “R”.  The holiday’s creator wanted it to be Fathers’ Day with the apostrophe after the “S” . . . but Congress put the apostrophe after the “R” when they established it as an official holiday.

2.  It was first proposed by a woman.  A woman from Washington state named Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to create a Mother’s Day for dads.  And because of her, Washington held the first Father’s Day on July 19th, 1910.

3.  It didn’t become an official holiday until 1972.  President Nixon was the one who officially declared it a holiday.  Mother’s Day, on the other hand, was made official in 1914.

4.  Father’s Day is the fourth-most popular holiday for greeting cards behind Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day.

5.  The official flower of Father’s Day is the rose.  And a red rose is supposed to signify that your father is living, while a white rose means he’s passed away.

6.  Ties might date back to 221 B.C.  When China’s first emperor and his terracotta army were discovered, each sculpture was wearing a necktie.

A New Workout Program Shocks You While You Exercise . . . and Produces Way Quicker Results?

A gym in New York City called Shock Therapy hooks people up to special suits that are powered with something called Electronic Muscle Stimulation Technology.

So while you’re exercising, it’s sending safe little pulses of electricity through your muscles, which helps activate them and makes the training more effective.

And they say that the shocks are so effective that you’ll get results in HALF the time it would normally take.  Their workouts only last 30 minutes, but the benefits to your body are just like the ones you’d get if you worked out normally for an hour.

They’re charging $50 per class for the treatment.  And there’s no word on whether they plan to expand their program to other gyms or other cities.
