Kanye West Tells Innovation Seminar He Is Running For President In 2024

According to Kanye West, his 2024 presidential bid is more real than ever as he talked about his new line of biodegradable shoes made from algae and potentially changing his name yesterday. In a 35-minute talk at the Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York City, West let loose a series of bizarre and intriguing revelations that have become synonymous with his brand. West’s presidential run, which first speculated in 2015 during the MTV Video Music Awards, came back full circle when he mentioned bringing Yeezy factories to America. West began his sentence, “When I run for president in 2024…,” before the room of 500 let loose disbelieving laughs. “What y’all laughing at?” Kanye asked before staring at the audience. He said: “When I run for president in 2024 we would have created so many jobs I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”

Disney+ Will Be Available On Amazon Fire TV After All

After some debate, Disney and Amazon have struck a deal to allow Disney+ to stream on Amazon’s Fire TV devices when the new streaming service launches on Nov. 12. Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the news during Disney’s earnings call yesterday. In another last-minute decision, Disney+ will be added to Samsung and LG devices as well. The two tech giants were previously in a standoff over whether Disney would relent on Amazon’s request to sell up to 30% of its ad space on Disney’s apps in exchange for carrying them on Fire TV devices, according to the Wall Street Journal. It’s unclear as of yet how those negotiations were resolved, but it looks like the two have decided to play ball together.

Michael Jackson's Iconic Moonwalk Socks Are Tipped To Sell For Over $1 Million At Auction

Michael Jackson's iconic moonwalk socks are expected to sell for over $1 million at auction. The late singer - who died in June 2009 - first sported the custom crystal stockings during his Billie Jean performance at Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever in May 1983, and now, the item is tipped to fetch a seven-figure sum. New Jersey-based auction company GottaHaveRockandRoll are offering the socks as part of their Frank DiLeo collection in the coming weeks, as well as a signed letter from the legendary singer to the late music executive. Former actor Frank - who passed away in August 2011 aged 63 - managed Michael from 1984 to 1989 - and presented the gift to him as a token of appreciation for keeping the Goodfellas star on his toes throughout his Victory Tour. The package also comes with a certificate of authenticity and a letter from Frank's wife confirming Michael wore them for his moonwalk debut. Sharing a preview of the lot on the website, the minimum bid starts at $100,000, with interested buyers expected to put up $1,000,000 - $2,000,000 for the package. Fans who don't have the cash to splash on the bedazzled socks can also look out for more pieces of Michael memorabilia, including the original gold and platinum awards for Thriller, Dangerous, Bad, This Is It and Off the Wall, as well as a prop sign used in the 1988 film Moonwalker.

"Jeopardy!" Whiz James Holzhauer Dominates In Tournament Of Champions

James Holzhauer, the professional gambler from Las Vegas who won 32 straight games earlier this year, returned to the “Jeopardy!” stage last night for the 2019 Tournament of Champions. He beat his opponents, physician Lindsey Shultz of Pennsylvania and software development manager Alan Dunn of Georgia, in the third matchup of the game show’s 2-week-long tournament. The episode ended with Holzhauer — who has won the second-most consecutive regular-season games in the iconic program’s history, after Ken Jennings’ 74 — racking up $30,635. Shultz ended up with $14,000 on the podium, and Dunn a measly $1. Holzhauer’s total non-tournament winnings of $2,464,216 were just shy of “Jeopardy!” legend Jennings’ all-time record of $2,520,700. After the first two rounds, Holzhauer had $30,309 to Shultz’s $10,800 and Dunn’s $6,000. Even if Shultz doubled her money, she still wouldn’t catch Holzhauer if he wagered conservatively. Last night’s win means Holzhauer will play again next week against the other four winners of this week’s games plus whichever four competitors earned the highest dollar-value scores.

Dua Lipa: Social Media Can Be Breeding Ground For Hate

Dua Lipa is sharing her thoughts on social media and its impact on her life. She discussed the pros and cons of Twitter and Instagram during yesterday’s episode of BBC Breakfast. Lipa, who boasts 3.5 million followers on Twitter and 35.2 million on Instagram, said social media remains part of her life, despite negativity she's encountered online. "Some days I don't read into the comments," the star said. "Some days maybe I feel a little bit more vulnerable and I dive in and I almost go looking for things that I don't want to see." "I think it's definitely human nature," she added. "I'm not going to hide that. I definitely don't want to hide that because I want people to hear that we're all human and we all go through the same thing." Lipa said she limits her use of social media to maintain a healthy balance in her life. "Social media can be such an amazing tool and it can be so fun to share things, but at the same time, it can really, it's almost a breeding ground for hate and anxiety," the singer said. "People feel like they can say things because they're hiding behind a computer screen." "I think that for me, it's important to use social media in bite sizes -- as long as it makes me feel good, and the second it doesn't, I like to take some time away from it," she added.Dua Lipa is sharing her thoughts on social media and its impact on her life.

Alec Baldwin Sues Man Who Said He Beat Him Over Parking Space

Alec Baldwin is suing the guy who accused the actor of punching him during an argument over a parking spot in Manhattan last year. Baldwin requested a trial by jury against Wojciech Cieszkowski, claiming he lied about being punched on November 2, 2018 and is trying to defame the star. The actor says in the lawsuit that he instead “lightly pushed Cieszkowski in the chest with one hand” before being arrested and charged with assault. He eventually pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment violation and agreed to take an anger management class and pay a $120 fine. “When two New Yorkers get into an argument over a parking space, typically what happens is they exchange a few sharp words and then move on with their lives,” Baldwin said in the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday. “But that is not what happened here. Cieszkowski has instead made up a false story about the encounter and refused to move on unless Baldwin succumbs to his extortion demands.”

Amy Roback Caught On Mic Telling How ABC Killed Jeffrey Epstein Story

Amy Robach (ABC News) was caught on hot mic revealing how she filmed an interview with Jeffrey Epstein's sex slave Virginia Roberts that she spent three years trying to get on the air. Project Veritas obtained a video of Robach in a discussion with her producer, saying: “I've had this interview for years. I've had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air.” Robach then goes on to list off the reasons why the story never made it to air, saying that the palace threatened to sue the network and that there were concerns that Prince William and Kate Middleton would no longer grant the network any interviews. ABC said in a statement: “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and six-part podcast that will air in the new year.”

Angelina Jolie Evacuated From The Eternals Set After Bomb Found

Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden were reportedly evacuated from the set of The Eternals, after an unexploded bomb was found. They were filming the Marvel movie on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura when the explosive was discovered, and everyone was apparently ordered back to a safe distance. “It was obviously terrifying – the bomb could have been there for decades untouched but who knows what might have happened if it was disturbed,” a set insider told Britain’s The Sun newspaper. “Some of the biggest stars in the world were on set and nobody was taking any chances. Fortunately, experts dealt with it.” It’s believed that the bomb dates from World War Two, when the Nazis had a base on the island. Angelina will star as Thena in the upcoming movie, while Richard takes on the role of Ikaris.

Sony has set April 8, 2021 as the release date for its sequel to its Academy Award-winning hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The acclaimed animated take on the Marvel superhero centered on Miles Morales -- voiced by The Get Down's Shameik Moore -- as he juggled high school life and superheroics. It also introduced the "Spider-Verse," thanks to a dimensional rift that lets him meet "Spider-Man" from other universes, including Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir, and others. Chris Pine, Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin, and Liev Schreiber also voiced characters. Producer Christopher Miller shared the sequel news Friday on Twitter.

John Legend Clarifies Kanye West Comment 'We Were Never The Closest Of Friends'

After a social media backlash to John Legend’s Vanity Fair comment about Kanye West, “we were never the best of friends," The Voice judge took to Twitter to clarify his words. In the magazine’s December cover story, Legend says, “I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively,” he says. “But we were never the closest of friends.” “I get why people want to make this a thing” Legend tweeted. “But I was explaining to the reporter how I've seen people I love reacting to the deaths of their mothers. I was thinking specifically of my own mom, Chrissy's mom and others.” “Then she asked me if I was referring to Kanye as well after Dr. West died,” he continued., referring to Kanye's late mother, Dr. Donda West, who died 12 years ago. “And I told her I wasn't really in a position to say because while Kanye have a long friendship and have a made a lot of great music, we weren't close on the level of confiding in each other about grief.” Kanye was John’s mentor, launching his career by signing him to his GOOD music label and changing his name from John Stephens to John Legend. “As I said then, I don't want this to sound like I'm trying to disown him now that we've publicly and privately disagreed about politics, etc.” Legend adds. “It was just clarifying that I had no private knowledge that equipped me to speculate on his grieving process and how that related to mine.”

Jeffrey Epstein's Autopsy More Consistent With Homicidal Strangulation Than Suicide

The body of disgraced money man and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his Manhattan federal prison cell in August, bore telltale signs of homicide despite an official ruling that he killed himself, a pioneering forensic pathologist revealed to “Fox & Friends” yesterday. The bombshell claim by Dr. Michael Baden, a former New York City medical examiner who has worked on high-profile cases during a five-decade medical career, is certain to reignite suspicions that surfaced immediately after Epstein, who was awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges involving underage girls, was discovered dead in his cell on Aug. 10. Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother and observed the autopsy, told Fox News its findings are more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging. He noted that Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple, Baden said. “Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden, who is also a Fox News contributor, said.

Michael Jackson Tops Forbes' Highest-Earning Dead Celebrities List

Michael Jackson has topped the Forbes' list of highest earning dead celebrities for the seventh year in a row, raking in $60 million since October 2018 despite being the subject of the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary. The list published yesterday revealed the King of Pop's music streams increased to 2.1 billion in the US, compared to 1.8 billion the year before. His Mijac Music catalog, Sony deal and a Las Vegas show also continue to contribute to his fortune. An estimation of pre-tax income – not deducting fees for agents, managers and lawyers – takes into account figures from Nielsen Music, IMDBPro and interviews with industry insiders. It puts Jackson at least $21 million ahead of Elvis Presley, Charles Schultz and Arnold Palmer.

Bill Murray wants to work at P.F. Chang's. Murray spoke with Amy Schumer on her podcast, "3 Girls 1 Keith," and discussed his affinity for "Family Feud," the Roosevelts, the time he spent with the WuTang Clan, his tie to Schumer's family liquor store and his desire to work at the dining chain. On the one job he'd like to do outside of acting, Murray revealed, "I did fill out an application at P.F. Chang's at the Atlanta airport, because I think that's one of the great places." "To do what? Just any job?" Schumer asked, to which Murray replied, "It looks like the best time." (P.F. Chang's has since extended an invitation via Twitter for Murray to join their team.)

Judge Refuses Brad Pitt's Request To Remove Him From Hurricane Katrina Lawsuit

A judge has denied Brad Pitt's request to be taken off a lawsuit that says his Make it Right Foundation built shoddy homes in the New Orleans area that was hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina. Pitt and other foundation directors asked the court to remove them from the lawsuit in November of last year, saying they weren't personally responsible for the construction. Judge Rachael Johnson denied the request last week. One of the Make it Right employees was removed from the lawsuit, however. Two homeowners filed the suit. Their attorney, Ron Austin, says the homes built by the foundation in the Lower Ninth Ward have infrastructural issues and residents have reported being sick. Pitt's foundation sought to build 150 homes in the Lower Ninth ward of New Orleans that were storm-safe, solar-powered, and “green” for the price of $150,000 in 2007, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. More than 100 green Make It Right houses were eventually built in 2008. The foundation sued the principal architect last year saying his designs were defective.

Ben Affleck Seen Stumbling Outside Halloween Party

Ben Affleck appeared to lose his balance outside a Halloween bash in West Hollywood on Saturday night, according to a video published by TMZ. Wearing a dark suit and a skull mask, Ben, who opened up about his recovery on Instagram earlier in the day, is seen grabbing hold of an SUV to sturdy himself after departing the UNICEF Masquerade ball. It was not clear what caused Affleck to stumble. “Sobriety is difficult and elusive for everyone struggling with addiction,” a source told Page Six yesterday. “Ben has acknowledged he’s going to slip up from time to time … it was never as if this was simply behind him.”

Jennifer Garner Has Banned Her Teenage Daughter From Instagram

Jennifer Garner has banned her teen daughter from joining Instagram, insisting the pressure of social media is too much for a 13 year old. The actress has a popular Instagram account and often posts photos of herself and her pet chickens on the site, but she doesn’t think young Violet will be able to handle the scrutiny of others. “Without even having parents who are well-known, I worry about all kids having to deal with this new pressure,” Garner said during an appearance on the Next Question with Katie Couric podcast. “My daughter’s at an all-girl school and it’s such a huge problem. She’ll occasionally talk to me about getting Instagram and I can see why, because I’m on there and it’s something kind of fun that I do, and I am modeling the opposite of what I want for her to do. I just say, ‘When you can show me studies that say that teenage girls are happier using Instagram than not, then we can have the conversation… I don’t see anything positive for you out there. You can look at mine when you want to, we can go over it together, but I just don’t see it.’”
