Maria Menounos had a brain tumor removed last month. She said she started getting headaches, slurred speech and had difficulty reading a teleprompter, so she went to the doctor and found out that she had a GOLF SIZED brain tumor (that is not cancerous thank goodness!!).
Maria’s mother is also suffering from stage 4 brain cancer. When Maria first received news of her own tumor she said, “I didn’t cry. I actually laughed. It’s so surreal . . . that my mom has a brain tumor, and now I have one too? I tell people all the time if your car is making a weird noise, you take it to the mechanic. How come when our body is making weird noises, we ignore it? I’m so lucky that I went to the doctor and raised the alarm.”
Fox wasn’t happy about losing IDOL to ABC and apparently they’re having a hard time letting it go. The television network is planning on coming up with a show to DIRECTLY compete against IDOL.
According to VARIETY, Fox is developing a singing competition that involves 4 finalists being picked at the beginning of the first show. Throughout the season, other singers will have to compete against them to steal those four slots…or something like that. Fox is also trying to get an earlier debut date to beat Idol to the punch.
Ed Sheeran quit twitter…and you’ll never guess the reason why!! Apparently he was being bullied….by LADY GAGA FANS!
Gaga fans thought Ed made a joke about Gaga on the internet and have been attacking him via the internet ever since. Ed made a statement about not wanting to do the halftime show for the Super Bowl. Gaga fans thought it was a dig at her. “I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. One comment ruins your day.”
Ed was talking about not wanting to mess up his career by letting success get to his head and thinking he knows everything. He said, “The smartest thing to do is listen to people who know I do not want to do the Super Bowl years later, after my biggest success, just to prove I’m still relevant.”
Lady Gaga DID stick up for him because she posted a picture of them together and said, “I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and a part of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean.”
What an incredible talented artist I LOVE ED @teddysphotos deserves all our love and respect like all humans do. I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and apart of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean. No reason to tear down an artist simply because they are on top. Work harder to be kinder everybody. That should be your first duty to humanity.
Yesterday, the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest went down at Coney Island in New York . . . and once again, JOEY CHESTNUT won.
He downed 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes, which was enough to break the previous record of 70 that he set last year.
