Last year’s Day of the Doors celebration in Los Angeles, held to mark the 50th anniversary of the release of the quartet’s debut album, is becoming an annual affair: The second installment is slated for Thursday at the intersection of Morrison Street and Densmore Avenue in Encino.

Doors drummer John Densmore will be on hand and is planning to read poetry written by lead singer Jim Morrison.

City Councilman Paul Koretz will unveil street signs marking the corner of Morrison and Densmore streets, which have long existed but without signs at the intersection.

When the couple behind HGTV’s home renovation show “Fixer Upper” aren’t busy fixing up houses, they’re pretty busy making babies.

Reality stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are expecting their fifth child, according to an Instagram post from Chip on Tuesday showcasing his pregnant’s wife’s belly and a coordinating baby bump of his own.

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT)” the goofy contractor, 43, wrote.

There’s a lot of negativity in the world right now, so we need more films like this [‘Mudbound’] to remind us that we’re all connected, and that our history is truly shared.

Late-night comedians still have plenty of material in the new year thanks to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and, of course, our own President Donald Trump, whose New Year’s resolution apparently wasn’t to curb his outlandish statements.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" the president tweeted Tuesday evening.

"Happy New Year, everybody!" said Jimmy Kimmel on ABC. “We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button.”

When I started out acting, I had a suspicion this [stardom] could happen, but that was all. I didn't care. I mean, I really didn't care. I had no commitments, no kids, no one to be responsible to. But then, in a funny kind of way, the less you care, the easier you seem to get there.
