Sacha Baron Cohen’s return to television is still days away from debuting, but the Showtime series is already courting controversy.
Sarah Palin, ex-governor of Alaska and former vice presidential candidate, posted a lengthy screed Tuesdayon Facebook claiming that she had been “duped” by Baron Cohen into appearing on “Who Is America?”
“Yup — we were duped. Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now?” Palin posted. “I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime.”
My entire life has been a strain. No, really. I was born two months early, I weighed 2½ pounds, I spent my first five weeks in an incubator. So in some ways I am a frail waif. But I don't make a big deal out of it. I just get on with my life.
Ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom this week, some Britons are attempting to “annoy” the U.S. president by launching a campaign to catapult the 2004 hit “American Idiot” to the top of the U.K. music charts.
And it appears to be gaining momentum, with the Green Day song popping on and off British charts this week.
In late April, protesters across the pond launched the campaign to play the anti-establishment anthem to make it the official No. 1 single in the U.K. by the time Trump arrives on Friday, when he’s set to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.
Jimmy Kimmel was in the wilds of Montana when he received an ominous text message from his wife via an emergency satellite phone.
“Donald Trump just attacked you at a rally,” her text read, Kimmel’s only clue that the president had launched a new rant against his perceived foes on late-night television.
The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host had been on vacation since the president’s notable appearance at a South Carolina rally on June 25, during which Trump referred to Jimmy Fallon as a “lost soul” and Stephen Colbert as a “low-life,” and told a very weird story about Kimmel.
“After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews,” Barr wrote. “I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why!”
I never thought I would be singing this long. And to be heard at this point in my life? All our shows are sold out. I just thank the Lord because he's not through with me yet. He's telling me, ‘Mavis, I got much more for you to do.’
Actor George Clooney was taken to the hospital in Sardinia and released after being involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle, hospital officials said.
The John Paul II hospital in Olbia said Clooney was released Tuesday. Local media that had gathered at the hospital said Clooney is believed to have left through a side exit.
Local daily La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a car. Private Mediaset, citing gossip magazine Chi, said the accident occurred near Costa Corallina, in the province of Olbia.
Johnny Depp’s year continues to progress in erratic fashion, with a new lawsuit surfacing Monday that accuses the actor of punching a location manager on the set of “City of Lies.”
Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, a location manager previously employed by “Private Practice,” “Medium” and “Blade,” was hired to work on the film about the police investigations into the murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., adapted from the novel “LAbyrinth” by Randall Sullivan and scheduled for release later this year.
According to court documents acquired by The Times, the incident between Depp and Brooks took place on April 13, 2017, and allegedly arose after Brooks advised Depp that they would have only one more shot, in order to abide by the city permit restricting filming to 11 p.m. inside the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
