Hollywood Headlines for July 6th!

They’ve finally tied the knot! And they did it secretly over the weekend. Does anyone else just feel at ease now that they’re married. Now they can live happily ever after with their 9 month old daughter Wyatt Isabel.

Um, why is the Royal family SO perfect? I mean, I know the answer to that. But I thought I’d ask anyway. Princess Charlotte was baptized over the weekend. The two-month old was christened yesterday, at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Norfolk, England. Fun fact: that is the same church that the late Princess Diana was baptized at in 1961. Perfect.

Is this NOT the most hardcore picture you’ve ever seen?

Over the weekend, the Foo Fighters played their 20th anniversary Fourth of July concert at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C. While the band had to cancel the remainder of their European tour last month following frontman Dave Grohl’s stage jump that left him with a broken leg, they didn’t let that get in the way of giving fans a great show.

Since Grohl’s leg was still in a cast on July 4, the singer came up with the idea to perform on a throne made of guitars, lights and amps while keeping his leg elevated. According to Radio.com, Grohl said he thought of the throne while on morphine in the hospital.

A big congrats to FGL’s Tyler Hubbard! The country star, 28, married Hayley Stommel last night at Trail Creek Cabin in Sun Valley, Idaho, on the two-year anniversary of their first kiss. Awwwwwwww.

Just because there is an ambiguous lyric n a song, that does not mean that people are feuding! These days it seems every song is scoured for evidence of jabs toward other celebrities, and Kacey Musgraves is not immune. Some have suggested one of the tracks on her new record Pageant Material, “Good Ol’ Boys Club,” is a subtle diss of Taylor Swift, but Musgraves says that is not the case.  The specific line in question is “Another gear in a big machine don’t sound like fun to me,” which some say may be referencing Swift, as she is signed to Big Machine Label Group. Musgraves defends the song’s message, saying it has nothing to do with the 1989 singer.“It’s about not wanting to be part of anybody’s club, anybody’s big machine,” she tells Radio.com. “Just wanting to go your own way and make a name for yourself. Being a self-made man or woman in whatever world or industry you live or work in. To me, it’s a universal message in that way.”

Move over, Taylor Swift! Garth Brooks has surpassed the country-turned-pop superstar on Forbes‘ list of the World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities.

Brooks, whose estimated earnings in the last year are a cool $90 million, came in at No. 6 on this year’s list. The country artist raked in the big bucks due to his record-setting World Tour, which has often included selling out the same arena twice in one night.

But Brooks isn’t the only country artist who appears on the list: He is joined by Toby Keith, who lands at No. 32 ($53 million), while Jason Aldean takes No. 47 ($43.5 million), Luke Bryan is at No. 48 ($42.5 million) and Kenny Chesney is at No. 49 ($42 million). Tim McGraw lands at No. 58 ($38 million), while Florida Georgia Line come in at No. 61 ($36.5 million). The Zac Brown Band ranked at No. 78 ($32 million), while Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton tied at No. 95 ($28.5 million each).

 

Hollywood Headlines for July 2nd!

Ben Affleck’s first public appearance following the announcement of his divorce from wife Jennifer Garner after 10 years of marriage will be a big one. Affleck will join his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-stars and director Zack Snyder at Comic-Con, the annual fan convention in San Diego, where the cast of the hotly-anticipated comic clash was introduced last year.

Whoever did this should get an award. And maybe a guest appearance on Game of Thrones!

We have a first look at Bruce Campbell playing everyone’s favorite dim-witted warrior as Starz resurrects the Evil Dead franchise. Premiering this fall with 10 episodes is Ash vs Evil Dead. As you can tell from the image above, Ash (who is still a stock boy) is once again ready to face his demons, and this time he’s got two folks to help him get the job done in fellow Value Stop employees Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo).
