Kevin Bacon thinks he and Taylor Swift should collab

Kevin Bacon fulfilled a bucket list item by performing with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, and the next wish he has is to collaborate with Taylor Swift. Kevin said, “I think she's a great songwriter and I think that what she's done with just her messaging and the messages she gives to young women, it's just, it's awesome.” Here’s the thing; Kevin hasn’t been to one of Taylor’s concerts, but he did say he plans to attend one in the near future. Might have to suck up a bit more than that.

Adele said she’s not taking selfies with fans for the rest of her Las Vegas residency and explained, “Normally I would absolutely stop and chat and all of that and hear all about your life and be the nosey person that I am, however, I’m hanging on by a thread trying not to get COVID.” She added, “Everyone that I know that I work with has f*****g COVID, so it’s a miracle that I haven’t had it yet.” She added that she’d be happy to selfies “from a distance” instead.

Meanwhile, Adele may have spilled the beans on a secret marriage to her partner Rich Paul during Saturday night’s show. When a fan at the concert jokingly proposed to her, she responded by saying, “You can’t marry me. I’m straight, my love, and my husband’s here tonight.”

Pieces of an interview and documentary featuring Katy Perry’s issues with ex-hubby Russell Brand are recirculating now that Russell is facing allegations of sexual assault allegations.  A 2013 "Vogue" interview shows Katy saying, "I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day," which has fans wondering if it has something to do with the claims against him. Russell has denied the allegations from the five women, spanning from 2006 to 2013, though it is worth noting his talent agent has dropped him.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend renewed their vows in Lake Como where they got married 10 years ago. This time their kids were with them. John and Chrissy have been together much longer though, since 2006 when they met on the set of one of John's music videos.

After 27 years of marriage, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have split. Both were seen this weekend without their wedding rings Sources say that those close to the couple knew it was a long time coming. The couple released a joint statement that, in part, said, “We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives." They share two adult children. Hugh and Deb were one of the “golden” couples of Hollywood for years. It’s a good thing he stayed in shape, now that he’s back on the market – I know a lot of women who would love to get their claws into that wolverine.
