Lady Gaga’s Dad Declares Support For Trump After President Rips His Daughter

Published

on


This could be an awkward holiday season for Lady Gaga and her father, Joe Germanotta.

A day after President Donald Trump called Germanotta’s pop-star daughter “not too good” and suggested he had salacious stories about her, Germanotta pledged his allegiance to Trump on Election Day.

“@realDonaldTrump 2020,” he tweeted in a now-“unavailable” tweet, People reported.

“You may have noticed my political and spiritual beliefs are different. liberty and freedom of choice would not be political,” he wrote shortly afterward, per the New York Post.

That message, too, is no longer viewable but it did provide insight into the ideological differences in the “Shallow” singer’s family.

On Monday, Trump insulted Gaga as she stumped for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“Lady Gaga — is not too good. I could tell you plenty of stories,” Trump told supporters at a rally, per Vulture. “I could tell you stories about Lady Gaga. I know a lot of stories about Lady Gaga.”

The multiple Grammy winner slammed Trump for his infamous “grab ’em by the pussy” remark and urged Americans to vote for Biden because “he’s a good person.”

On Tuesday she declared on Twitter, “Vote today like your life depends on it.”

The entertainer and her father haven’t disagreed about everything over the years. Gaga wrote the foreword for her father’s 2016 Italian cookbook. And at one time at least, she reportedly gave 50% of her earnings to Germanotta. “I’m married to my dad,” she told Elle in a 2010 interview.

As of Wednesday morning, Trump and Biden were locked in a tense race with many uncounted votes in battleground states.

Nicole Kidman Sweetly Reacts To Emma Roberts Gushing Over Keith Urban

Published

on


Nicole Kidman offered Emma Roberts a playful gesture of support over the two actors’ shared admiration of country music star Keith Urban, Kidman’s husband.

Urban is currently wowing audiences around the world on his Speed of Now Tour, which kicked off April 28 in Birmingham, England. After taking in one of the four-time Grammy winner’s recent concerts, Roberts gushed about the experience to her fans.

The actor shared a photo on Instagram that showed her dancing by the stage, with the caption “I 💙 @keithurban.”

As of Friday, the image had received around 80,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

Most of Roberts’ followers, however, seemed most interested in Kidman’s reply: “I understand how you feel.”

Kidman and Urban have been married since 2006. The couple share two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.

Speaking to People in 2019, the “Being the Ricardos” star recalled the moment she knew Urban was “the love of my life.”

“It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York,” Kidman told the outlet. “That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.’”

In May, Kidman surprised fans when she joined her husband onstage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Introducing herself as “Nicole Urban,” the actor playfully said she’d merely wanted to retrieve the singer-songwriter’s jacket.

“You put it on the floor, and I’m worried,” Kidman quipped.

Urban will resume his Speed of Now Tour with a performance in Charlotte, North Carolina. He and fellow musician Richard Marx have also just unveiled “One Day Longer,” a new duet that will appear on Marx’s forthcoming album, “Songwriter.”

Judds Ask Court To Seal Report Of Naomi Judd’s Death Investigation

Published

on



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The family of country singer Naomi Judd filed a court petition Friday to seal police reports and recordings made during the investigation into her death.

The family filed the petition in Williamson County Chancery Court, saying the records contain video and audio interviews with relatives in the immediate aftermath of Judd’s death, and releasing such details would inflict “significant trauma and irreparable harm.”

The petition was filed on behalf of her husband Larry Strickland and her daughters Ashley and Wynonna Judd. A representative provided it to The Associated Press with the family’s permission.

Judd, 76, died on April 30 at her home in Tennessee. Her daughter Ashley has previously said that her mother she killed herself, and the family said she was lost to “the disease of mental illness.”

The court filing also included details about how Ashley Judd found her mother alive after she shot herself. Ashley stayed by her mother’s side for 30 minutes until help arrived.

The petition asks the court to prohibit the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office from releasing the records for several reasons, including that the disclosure would include her medical records and that the family has a right to privacy.

Tennessee public records law generally allows local law enforcement records to be released, but police have the discretion to hold records while an investigation is ongoing. Once an investigation is closed, that exemption no longer applies. The AP left a message for the sheriff on Friday seeking comment.

Strickland, Wynonna and Ashley Judd submitted statements outlining their concerns about the records. Strickland said in the court filing that he was unaware that his interviews with law enforcement were being recorded and that he shared personal and private information to assist in the investigation.

Ashley Judd said she was in “clinical shock, active trauma and acute distress” when she spoke with law enforcement and that she did not want those records, including video, audio and photos, to permanently stay in the public domain and haunt their family for generations.

The petition said that media outlets in Tennessee had already filed public records requests in her case.

Britney Spears’ Ex Jason Alexander Convicted Of Trespassing At Singer’s Wedding

Published

on



VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — A man once briefly married to Britney Spears has been convicted of aggravated trespassing and battery at the pop star’s June wedding.

Jason Alexander, 40, pleaded no contest to the two misdemeanor counts in a California court, prosecutors in Ventura County announced Thursday. The Ventura County judge sentenced him to the 64 days he has already served in jail.

Prosecutors dropped charges of felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism.

Alexander, a childhood friend of Spears to whom she was married for less than three days in 2004, appeared uninvited at the house before the ceremony while livestreaming on Instagram.

He got inside the house and up to the locked door of Spears’ bedroom when she was inside getting ready for the wedding, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing.

Alexander refused to leave the property when told, battered a security guard who tried to remove him, and damaged a door, prosecutors said.

After he entered his plea, a judge issued a new protective order forbidding him from coming within 100 yards of Spears or the security guard.

Alexander’s attorney, Sandra Bisignani, did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment. She previously said in court that there was no evidence he had any intention of harming Spears.

Spears’ lawyer declined comment.

Ellen DeGeneres Pays Tribute To Ex-Girlfriend Anne Heche

Published

on


Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to former girlfriend Anne Heche on Friday with a short but heartfelt message for the actor’s family and loved ones.

The former talk show host’s statement came after Heche’s family and friends said the actor was brain-dead following injuries sustained in a car crash last week. Heche remained on life support while family determined whether she was a match for organ donation, according to a statement from family and friends provided to CNN and NBC News.

“This is a sad day,” DeGeneres wrote on Twitter. “I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love.”

On Monday, DeGeneres was approached in Los Angeles by a photographer for the Daily Mail, who asked for comment on Heche’s condition at the time.

After noting that she and her ex were “not in touch with each other,” DeGeneres added, “I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”

Heche had been hospitalized since Aug. 5, when she crashed her car into a home located in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles. Initially listed in critical condition, she reportedly fell into a coma three days later and never regained consciousness.

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Heche had cocaine in her system at the time of the accident.

DeGeneres and Heche dated from 1997 to 2000. The two women were among Hollywood’s most buzzed-about couples at a time when mainstream culture was considerably less inclusive of the LGBTQ community.

In a 2020 interview with Mr. Warburton magazine, Heche recalled the backlash she’d received when she brought DeGeneres to the premiere of her 1997 film “Volcano.”

“I was told by Fox Studio executives that if I brought Ellen to the premiere, my contract would be terminated,” she told the publication. “I brought Ellen despite those threats, and we were escorted out of the theater before the lights came on by security and not allowed to attend the premiere party because they did not want any photos of us together.”

She continued, “Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honor. I was a part of a revolution that created social change, and I could not have done that without falling in love with her.”

Michelle Branch Announces Split From Patrick Carney, Says She’s ‘Totally Devastated’

Published

on



“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family,” Branch said in a statement provided to People magazine.

“The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward,” she said. “With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”

The “Everywhere” singer and Carney tied the knot in 2019, and have two children together: 4-year-old Rhys James Carney and 6-month-old Willie Jacquet Carney.

People magazine also reported that Branch posted a message to Twitter accusing Carney of cheating on her. She has since deleted the posts.

HuffPost has reached out to representatives for both musicians.

Things seemed better between the couple just seven weeks ago, when the “Goodbye to You” singer posted a sweet message to Carney on Father’s Day.

“This guy makes our world go around and we love him so,” she wrote on June 20, alongside a photo of the rocker holding their son.

Carney was previously married to Denise Grollmus and Emily Ward, while Branch was married once before, to her former bassist, Teddy Landau. The two share a 17-year-old daughter, Owen Isabelle Landau.

The Nastiest Part Of Woodstock ’99 May Haunt You Forever

Published

on



Next time you see people diving in the mud at a music festival, don’t join them. And if the water from the bottle filling stations is off in color or taste, don’t drink it.

That’s one of the many haunting lessons of Woodstock ’99, the disastrous music festival that’s the subject of a new Netflix series “Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99.”

The port-a-potties overflowed near the showers, leading to a plumbing catastrophe and tons of “mud” that festival-goers happily dove into and slathered over their bodies. Except it wasn’t just mud. It was a mix of mud and poop.

“Multiple mud-covered people, grinning ear to ear, stopped to pose for pictures,” said entertainment reporter David Blaustein, who covered the event for radio and was featured in the documentary. “I can only imagine the look on their faces when they found out they spent hours rolling around in shit.”

It even got into the water stations.

While the fecal nightmare was one of the most memorable parts of the series, it was not even the worst part of the event, which was marked by at least three deaths and multiple sexual assaults.

Promoter John Scher tried to downplay the assaults.

“Woodstock was like a small city, you know?” he said in the Netflix documentary. “All things considered, I’d say that there would probably be as many or more rapes in any sized city of that… but it wasn’t anything that gained enough momentum so that it caused any on-site issues, other than, of course, the women it happened to.”

Blaustein described Scher’s level of denial as “Trumpian.”

“I almost feel bad for him,” Blaustein said via email. “I bet if he came out and said, ’I fucked up, and I’m sorry,′ the victims and their families might get some closure or satisfaction. I think he owes them that.”

Blaustein also pointed out that if Scher believed the event was like a small city, he should’ve staffed it accordingly.

“If they knew they would have the population of a small city, why didn’t they secure the event like a small city, you know, with ample law enforcement and proper infrastructure?” Blaustein asked. “If it was a small city and he was the mayor, he probably would’ve been arrested for criminal negligence.”

“Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99” is currently streaming on Netflix.
