Minaj boycotting Instagram

Nicki Minaj will no longer post on Instagram in protest over the photo-sharing site removing its 'likes' feature on certain accounts.

Bosses at the social media giant are set to begin testing the new policy this week, which aims at improving the mental health situation of its subscribers, but the Anaconda hitmaker feels it will hurt independent artists.

"I'm not posting on IG after this week cuz they removing the likes," the newlywed wrote on Twitter. "Hmmmm what should I get into now? Think of all the time I'll have with my new life..."

"This isn't about how smaller companies will cope," she adds. "It's about WHY the bigger company is doing it. This is why musicians make no money. The labels & streaming services knew what to say to pacify us. They continue to make the REAL MONEY."

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri shared details of the imminent policy change on Nov. 9, noting account holders will still "be able to see how many people liked a given photo... but no one else will".

"It's about young people," he added. "The idea is to try to 'depressurize' Instagram, make it less of a competition and give people more space to focus on connecting with people that they love, things that inspire them."

Ozzy: first single in decade

Ozzy Osbourne has released his first single in almost a decade as he continues his recovery from a fall at his home at the beginning of the year.

Under The Graveyard is the first track from the heavy rocker's forthcoming album, Ordinary Man, which is scheduled to drop in early 2020.

Ozzy recorded the album in Los Angeles with guests including Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers on drums.

Osbourne recalls the recording got underway after he met with producer and guitarist Andrew Watt for a potential collaboration with rapper Post Malone.

"It all started when (daughter) Kelly comes in and says, 'Do you want to work on a Post Malone song?'" Ozzy recalls. "My first thing was, 'Who the f**k is Post Malone?'

"I went to Andrew's house and he said, 'We will work really quick'. After we finished that song, he said, 'Would you be interested in starting an album?' I said, 'That would be f**king great', but now I am thinking, 'I don't want to be working in a basement studio for six months!' And in just a short time, we had the album done.

"Duff and Chad came in and we would go in and jam during the day and I would go work out the songs in the evenings. I previously had said to (wife) Sharon, 'I should be doing an album', but in the back of my mind I was going, 'I haven't got the f**king strength...' but Andrew pulled it out of me. I really hope people listen to it and enjoy it, because I put my heart and soul into this album."

Under The Graveyard dropped on Friday.



Vince Neil slams rumours

Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has slammed reports suggesting his weight issues and a feud with drummer Tommy Lee are preventing the band from reuniting for a tour.

Sources claim the group was offered a lucrative Live Nation comeback tour as long as Neil lost weight and sought out treatment for substance abuse but the singer insisted he'd only comply if Lee agreed to sort out his drug use first.

Now, Neil is fighting back, insisting there is no such deal on the table and he has no problems with his former bandmate.

"People these rumours are false," he wrote on Twitter. "I haven't spoken to any band member's since (the) movie premiere (The Dirt).

"I had to cancel shows due to back problems which I am getting treatment now (sic). There is no tension between me and Tommy. Don't believe anything from These so-called gossip sites. Keep Rocking."

The band briefly reunited last year to record new music for their Netflix biopic and regrouped on the red carpet for the film's premiere earlier this year.

Star Wars films 'on hiatus'

Disney chief Bob Iger has reportedly told investors the Star Wars films will go "on hiatus" after the latest installment Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

After Disney chiefs acquired the rights to George Lucas' science-fiction saga in 2012, they announced plans for a new trilogy, which comes to an end with The Rise of Skywalker, and several spin-off films.

However, according to Variety, with the last spin-off movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, failing to meet box office expectations, Iger told investors on a quarterly earnings call that Star Wars will "go into a hiatus" for a few years to focus on TV shows.

The news comes shortly after Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss announced they would not move forward with Disney on plans for a further trilogy of films.

Another of Disney's major properties, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is also at a crossroads after the release of Avengers: Endgame, which concluded the stories of some of its iconic characters, including Robert Downey, Jr.'s Iron Man.

Iger said he was optimistic about the future of both franchises, though, saying: "When we think about those two businesses, Marvel and 'Star Wars,' we think about them as more than just films and film franchises. We feel really good about their creative direction, but also their commercial direction."

A new Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian, is set to debut on the entertainment giant's new streaming platform Disney+ on Nov. 12.



Scarlett tops rich list

Scarlett Johansson has topped the new Forbes rich actresses list with a whopping $56 million haul over the last 18 months.

The Avengers star raked in the cash from multiple movies between June, 2018 and June, 2019 to beat out Sofia Vergara by over $10 million.

Reese Witherspoon and her Big Little Lies co-star and co-producer Nicole Kidman come in third and fourth, while Reese's The Morning Show castmate Jennifer Aniston rounds out the top five.

Kidman's Bombshell co-stars Margot Robbie and Charlize Theron also make the top 10 at eight and nine, respectively, as do Kaley Cuoco, Elisabeth Moss, and Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo.



Liam's teenage girlfriend

Liam Payne has spoken publicly about his teenage girlfriend Maya Henry's age, after fans debated how old she really was.

The former One Direction singer has been dating the model and aspiring actress for the past few months, leaving fans to figure out if she is 18 or 19, as information that is available online has been contradictory.

While many reports claimed she was 19, eagle-eyed fans spotted that Maya"s father famously threw her a $6 million Quinceanera party to celebrate her 15th birthday back in 2016 - meaning she could only be 18 now.

A fan of the Strip That Down hitmaker speculated on Twitter: "Every article about Liam's girlfriend says she's 19 when she's actually 18.

"This is intentional because when fabricating this ridiculous PR campaign for her they said that they've been together for a year, which would mean that Liam was dating a 17 y/o."

However, Liam insisted there is no truth in the claims, replying: "19 don't believe everything you read on the internet."

The star previously credited his new love for "bringing happiness back" into his life, following his split from the mother of his son Bear, ex Cheryl, last year.



Lizzo's ex tries to get back

The ex who inspired Lizzo's hit Truth Hurts tried to reconcile with the star when the breakup anthem topped the charts.

The singer/rapper penned the tune back in 2017 after the man broke up with her by voicemail to get back with his ex. The split also influenced the star's third album, Cuz I Love You, and when Truth Hurts finally climbed to the top of Billboard's Hot 100 chart in September, her former beau decided he wanted to give their relationship another go.

Speaking on stage at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday night, she told the crowd: "So the person that I wrote Truth Hurts about and the person that I basically wrote my whole album about, hit me up on Halloween day.

"I ain't heard from his a*s in 365 days and then he wanted to write me a f**king love letter," she added. "I was so shocked that he contacted me but you know who else contacted me? His side b**ch."

The star laughed: "So you know what I do? Delete, delete, delete. Block, block, block."

Lizzo went on to share some valuable relationship advice with the crowd, explaining: "Let me tell you something, f**k boys don't love themselves. So how the hell they going to love someone else?"

The star previously explained the song came about after her producer Ricky Reed documented a rant she had about the ex, and said she went into the booth and cut the tirade to music.



Dolly shops at night

Dolly Parton and her husband shop in the middle of the night when she's at home in Tennessee, so she can avoid fans.

The country icon reveals she and Carl Dean hit the 24-hour supermarkets near their home in the wee small hours of the morning, so they get the stores to themselves.

"We go to places, Publix or Walmart or places for certain things I want to get, (and) we'd go in the middle of the night to those places that are open 24 hours a day," Parton tells People.

"You'd be surprised at how lucky I'd get with that. You see a few people, and I don't mind - I love people - I just don't want to slow up my shopping."

Dolly insists she loves doing the simple things with her stay-at-home husband when she's off the road and she knows he's still her biggest fan when she's away from him.

"He's always supporting me as long as I don't try to drag him in on it," Parton adds. "He's always been my biggest fan behind the scenes, but he's at home."



Kanye wants to be president

Kanye West is hoping to kickstart a career in politics as he reveals plans to run for U.S. president in 2024.

Earlier this year, the rapper's wife Kim Kardashian announced she was training to become a lawyer, and is looking to sit the state bar exam in California in 2024.

It seems the reality TV star's shift in career path has inspired her husband Kanye, as he too is plotting a new venture for that year - to become POTUS.

During his appearance at the Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York on Thursday, Kanye said: "When I run for president in 2024, we're going to definitely – yo whatchu all laughing at?

"When I run for president in 2024, we would've created so many jobs that, in fact, I'm going to walk," he continued. "What I'm saying is, when y'all read the headlines, 'Kanye's crazy,' this and that, this and that, it's like one in three African Americans are in jail and all of the celebrities are in jail also because they can't say nothing! They've got no opinion! They're so scared!"

The Yeezy mogul is a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, and was even invited to join Trump for lunch at the White House in Washington, D.C. in October last year, when he proudly wore his red cap bearing the property mogul-turned-politician's 'Make America Great Again' election campaign slogan, and ranted about a wide range of issues, including criminal justice reform and mental healthcare.



Frasier revival on the way?

Production on a revamped Frasier could begin as early as next spring, according to the beloved sitcom's star Kelsey Grammer.

The actor previously dismissed a revival, insisting it would be difficult to shoot without his onscreen dad - the late John Mahoney - but last year he admitted he had seen a storyline he liked and was considering a return to TV as pompous psychiatrist Frasier Crane.

And now it looks like the show could start shooting early next year.

During an appearance on In Depth with Graham Bensinger, Grammer revealed he is currently negotiating a home for the project, adding, "We've hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go.

"We're sort of on standby a little bit working on a couple of possible network deals that we're circling. And Frasier is sort of in a second position to that at this point. So, there's still stuff going on. But a revisit to Frasier's world is, I think, definitely going to come. It's ready to go.

"We just have to staff it and find somebody who wants to give us money for it... I think there's a couple of outlets who would actually be interested in revisiting Frasier."

In an interview in 2018, Grammer insisted the new Frasier would not be set in Seattle, Washington, adding, "It's not going to be the same Frasier. It's going to be the man in his next iteration, and hopefully that'll be something people like watching."

Frasier first appeared as a character on Cheers. Grammer's show ran for 11 seasons from 1993-2004 and won 37 Emmys.



Helen wants more tattoos

Helen Mirren is planning on getting more tattoos as she gets older, after admitting she finds the inkings "addictive."

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival last year, The Good Liar star revealed she got her first and only tattoo while she was "drunk on a reservation", and that she used a safety pin to make it, 'like a prison tattoo."

She explained the inking - two interlocking 'V's on her left hand - represents the idea of being "equal and opposite" to another person.

While the star previously expressed her distaste for how mainstream body art had become, in an interview with U.S. TV show Today on Wednesday she confessed she can see why people love their body art.

"I got this one when only Hell's Angels had tattoos," the Catherine The Great star said of her sole tattoo, before adding, "It's a little bit addictive. I think as I get older, I'll get more tattoos."



Jen says she's a home body

Jennifer Aniston has confessed she's guilty of isolating herself from "what's going on in the real world."

The actress is currently on the promotional trail for her new Apple TV+ program, The Morning Show, which details the experiences of women in the cutthroat world of television morning news, and made the revelation while discussing how her character feels behind closed doors.

"I find myself at times isolating," she told Glamour. "Don't get me wrong, I love being home. Home is a very comfortable, safe space for me. But if you stay home for too long you will become isolated and lose touch with what's going on in the real world."

Meanwhile, her co-star Reese Witherspoon admitted life in the limelight had also affected aspects of her life, as she found it more difficult to hustle deals for her business ventures, including production company, Hello Sunshine.

Admitting it has been quite "challenging," Reese explained that people "didn't care" when she was attempting to raise money for her new company.

The star explained that she was left "vulnerable" when trying to get people to "believe in her."
