What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:
Taylor Swift suffered an injury prior to her concert in Dallas on Saturday night, and tweeted out “Band-Aids don’t fix kitchen knife-related injuries”, of course a reference to her mega hit ‘Bad Blood’. As they say the show must gone on, so Taylor shook it off and performed before 60,000+ fans sporting a white bandage with the her signature ‘13’ on her finger. Swift continues to bring stars into her galaxy on her tour, this time bringing up her friend Elle Goulding. The two performed a duet to ‘Love Me Like You Do’! The concert (and her outfits) were amazing!
Tracy Morgan made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live as host this weekend. The appearance was filled with lots of laughter, emotion and even references to his near fatal accident. He celebrated with friends, family and fans after the show. It was wonderful to see Tracy and his amazing comedic nature back preforming!
Following his performance on SNL, Morgan headed to DC to honor his friend Eddie Murphy who received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Some past recipients include Richard Pryor, Ellen DeGeneres and George Carlin. When Morgan walked onto the stage, he received a standing ovation. While honoring Murphy, Tracy looked up at him seated in a special box at the Kennedy Center and said, “when I came out of my coma I spoke to Eddie on the phone, and he was the first one to make me laugh, and that’s why I love you!”. He went on to say, “you are a true comedic hero, and the reason I have a career.” The show was taped for broadcast and will air November 23 on PBS.
Oprah Winfrey bought a 10% stake in Weight Watchers for 43 million dollars! Once she did this, the stock soared and in one day off her 43 million dollar investment Oprah made 70 million dollars! YES! 70 million dollars! Additionally, she will join the board (if I was Weight Watchers, I would let her be Chairman of the Board!) No other plans regarding her involvement were revealed, but stay tuned to A Dose of Sass, you know there will be some!
JELENA fans are rejoicing. On October 17 both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez surprised the world by dropping a new duet. The song titled ‘Strong’ which has a strong and sexy vibe my sources told me has actually been secretly in the works for months. Both Justin and Selena participated in the creation and writing of the song which broaches the subject of complicated and brutal relationships.
Mariah Carey has signed a multi-million dollar deal for a one-night only performance at the Copacabana in Brazil. One of my sources in LA tells me she is getting anywhere from $2-5 million for the show! WHOA! May 2016 bring us all such great fortune!
