Madonna launched her first NFT yesterday, and the virtual clips are definitely NSFW. They are 3D scanned virtual images of a naked Madonna – a much, younger-looking Madonna – giving birth to a whole bunch of stuff like butterflies, trees and robot caterpillars. Let’s not forget the close-ups of her lady bits. The NFT is actually made up of three videos, Mother of Creation, Mother of Evolution, and Mother of Technology. Money raised from the NFT will go to three charities.

Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Lautner, Judd Apatow, and Leslie Mann were among the guests at Adam Sandler’s youngest daughter’s recent Bat Mitzvah. Halsey and Charlie Puth were there are well to perform. Sunny Sandler celebrated her 13th birthday and transition into adulthood with a candy-themed bash at the Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles.

Selma Blair is telling her story in her new memoir, “Mean Baby,” and it’s quite the dark tale. She detailed years of addiction and personal trauma that started when she was seven. That’s the first time she got drunk. She said, “I don't know if I would've survived childhood without alcoholism. That's why it's such a problem for a lot of people. It really is a huge comfort, a huge relief in the beginning. Maybe even the first few years for me because I did start really young with that as a comfort, as my coping mechanism.” Selma also spoke about how her drinking – which continued for decades – put her in the position to be raped multiple times. It’s a troubling life she survived.

Blac Chyna has been accused of attacking one of her friends, Sequoya King. The friends were partying after Chyna lost her $100 million lawsuit against the Kardashians. Sequouya said that Chyna was going off on her, so she hit back with, “That’s why you lost your lawsuit.” Blac Chyna then kicked her in the stomach and broke her phone. Sequoya said that she apologized and offered to pay for her phone and other expenses. So far, Chyna hasn’t commented on the situation, according to the Daily Mail.

Rebel Wilson recreated Britney Spears’ look from her music video “(You Drive Me) Crazy” for her new movie “Senior Year.” She made it clear they did get Brit’s permission for the scene and said, “The only person I care about their review of this film is Britney Spears herself, so, Britney, I hope you check it out this weekend on Netflix and just let me know! Like, hit me up on the DMs… because we really are paying homage to you and we hope you enjoy it.”

Selena Gomez has taken to social media to apologize after some people saw her latest TikTok video as a dig at Hailey Bieber, wife of Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber. Selena had posted a video of her skincare routine, but she appeared to roll her eyes throughout it. The thing is, just hours earlier, Hailey posted a “Get Ready with Me” TikTok, where she walked people through her skincare routine. People felt Selena was mocking Hailey for it. Selena said after, “Guys no idea what I did but I really am sorry. Zero bad intention. Deleting soon.” She then turned off her comments.

While almost everyone that survived the first five movies in the “Scream” franchise is on board for the sixth installment, one isn’t sure. Neve Campbell, who has played Sidney Prescott since the first film, says she’s not attached to the new project, explaining, “I don’t know if I am,” adding that she “can’t get into it.” It was announced yesterday that Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Jenna Ortega are all coming back, and Courteney Cox revealed back in March that she’ll be back as Gale Weathers.
“Scream 6” is set to hit theaters on March 31, 2023, according to etonline.com.

Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer will be reprising their roles in “Top Gun: Maverick,” but we won’t see Kelly McGillis back as Charlie. Director Joseph Kosinski said it was because “it was important to introduce some new characters.” Instead, “Top Gun: Maverick” will star Jennifer Connelly as Penny Benjamin, who was mentioned in the original “Top Gun” as being “the Admiral’s daughter” whom Maverick once had a fling with, according to Variety. Kelly said back in 2019 that she was not asked to star in the sequel, saying at the time, “I’m old, and I’m fat, and I look age-appropriate for what my age is. And that is not what that whole scene is about. To me, I’d much rather feel absolutely in my skin and who I am at my age as opposed to placing a value on all that other stuff.” “Top Gun: Maverick” hits theaters May 27th.

Harry Styles went above and beyond training for his next music video. According to The Sun, he spent a month training at a circus school.
A source said, “Harry has spent weeks being taught circus skills for this video. He wanted it to be a real spectacle. It is probably his most expensive video yet because, as well as all the rehearsals, it was a huge set with loads of extras and really extravagant costumes.” The insider added, “He had to really make sure he was strong enough to do the stunts like the tightrope and trapeze, because it requires incredible upper- body and core strength,” noting, “this video really pushed him to his limits.”

Blac Chyna's move to have a Los Angeles Superior Court judge disqualified for his alleged "hostile" behavior towards her has been shut down. According to court documents obtained by Radar, the judge ruled that Chyna's attorney did not present any valid reasons to consider the request. Chyna said the judge was biased against her and her lawyer Lynne Ciani and that the judge started acting differently toward her after Chyna's mom Tokyo Toni made comments online about the case. In regards to the attempt, Kim’s team said, “[Chyna’s] statement and sworn declaration of disqualification is a baseless effort to save face after losing at trial and is devoid of any legal basis to disqualify Judge Alarcon from presiding over further matters in this action. While [Chyna] and her counsel Lynne Ciani are understandably disappointed about the jury’s defense verdict following an emotionally charged trial, their effort to make a scapegoat of Judge Alarcon is frivolous, dishonest, and deserving of sanctions.”

We told you earlier this year that MrBeast came out with his own line of chocolate bars called “Feastables.” Just like Willy Wonka, there were some bars that had a golden tickets in them. MrBeast is building his chocolate factory, and recently posted a pic on Twitter of his progress, writing, “We’re in the early stages of recreating Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory (this photo is like 10% of it) why didn’t someone tell me this would be so hard).” He’s even gotten as far as the chocolate waterfall. And now I NEED a golden ticket, I don’t care if I’m being a little Veruca Salt about it.
