Fox News' Tucker Carlson acknowledged his position as a new face for those tuning into Fox News during the 8 p.m. EST time slot Monday evening with a few brief remarks to top his broadcast.
"I watched Bill O'Reilly for years," Carlson began, noting that viewers were seeing an unfamiliar sight with "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in the place of the network's 20-year-plus fixture, "The O'Reilly Factor."
After expressing his admiration for "The Factor's" former host, Carlson said, "What O'Reilly did was not easy. He set a high bar and I'm going to do my best to meet it."
Faye Dunaway thought Warren Beatty was simply being Warren Beatty when he hesitated before showing her the winner's card at the end of the Oscars in February.
"He took the card out, and he didn't say anything. He paused," the actress said with a laugh Monday on “NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt." "He looked over me, offstage. He looked around. And I finally said, 'You're impossible.'
"I thought he was joking," she said. "I mean, I thought he was stalling. Warren's like that. He kind of holds the power...."
Elton John contracted "a harmful and unusual" bacterial infection during his recent South American tour and, after an extended hospital stay that included two nights in intensive care, has canceled all of his shows scheduled for April and May.
"During his return flight home from Santiago, Chile, he became violently ill," his reps said Monday in a statement. "Upon returning to the UK, Elton's Doctors admitted him to hospital, where he underwent immediate treatment to remove the infection."
John was discharged on Saturday and, on doctor's orders, is resting at home. He's expected to make a full recovery.
The MC’s tour will take him to L.A.’s Staples Center on Aug. 6, at the tail end of a monthlong tour beginning July 12. The tour is in support of his new, widely acclaimed album “Damn,” released last week to coincide with his Coachella dates.
Openers for the tour include Travis Scott — who made a cameo with Lamar to perform “Goosebumps” in Indio — and D.R.A.M.
The last time Amber Heard made news out of Australia it was for smuggling two dogs. This time it's for mugging with some big dogs.
Heard, whose acrimonious divorce from Johnny Depp was finalized in January, posted a pic Sunday having dinner with Tesla-SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk at Moo Moo restaurant on Queensland's Gold Coast. Could've been a birthday dinner, as the "Aquaman" actress turned 31 on Saturday.
"Cheeky," she wrote in the caption, drawing attention to her lipstick print on Musk's face. He posted a similar pic on his Instagram account.
Since Donald Trump took office in January, a narrative has emerged that his daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are more moderate voices in an administration known for more extreme personalities.
But on Sunday, "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver threw cold water on that widely held assumption. Here's a link to the video (warning: Oliver is known to use language that could offend).
With both Kushner and the younger Trump now assuming official roles in the White House -- and Kushner, in particular, tasked with a Herculean to-do list that includes bringing peace to the Middle East and ending the opioid epidemic -- Oliver attempted to answer two questions.
What I want to do now is devote my life to concentrating on roles for older women that can help this culture become more equal not only in gender but in age. That demographic of our society so often is forgotten on screen unless it’s somebody with a really sad problem or somebody with very comical Alzheimer’s.
