Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars & Michael Jackson Make The Most Popular Workout Songs

Since many of us have been working out at home thanks to quarantine, it's always key to have good tunes on hand for max motivation. And in a new survey, the website FitRate found that when it comes time to sweat, only certain artists will do. The website polled more than 1,000 people who'd recently exercised and learned that pop music is the most popular genre for workouts, followed by hip hop or rap, and then classic rock. The most popular artist to work out to was Lady Gaga, followed by Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars. But it turns out that if you want to get an intense workout, you'd be better off switching to rap, heavy metal or punk rock. Those who worked out to pop mostly did weightlifting, Pilates and squats, but heavy metal listeners were more likely run a mile in less than seven minutes. Punk rock listeners worked out the longest -- an average of 53 minutes per session. And when it comes to setting personal records, listening to hip hop or rap produced the best results, and the most intense workouts. But in addition to rap or hip hop, the artists who many people named as helping them set personal records during their sessions include The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and, again, Michael Jackson.

Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" Bumped To 2021

Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” has been bumped a year from Dec. 18 of this year until Dec. 10, 2021, Disney announced yesterday. The studio also pushed “Black Widow” from Nov. 6 to May 7, 2021. “Eternals” will now open on Nov. 5, 2021, instead of Feb. 12, 2021, and “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” previously dated for May 7, 2021, will now open on July 9, 2021. Spielberg is directed and co-producing “West Side Story,” with a screenplay by Tony Kushner. It is the adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. A film adaptation was released in 1961. The new adaptation will star Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria, while Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, Corey Stoll and Brian d’Arcy James and Rita Moreno will also star. “West Side Story” explores young love and tensions between rival gangs the Jets and the Sharks on the streets of 1957 New York.

Jussie Smollett Demands Court Dismiss 2nd Wave Of Charges

Jussie Smollett is once again asking that the charges against him be dismissed in a Chicago court, arguing that the grand jury testimony used in his second indictment is invalid. The former “Empire” star is facing renewed charges for allegedly staging a hate-crime attack against himself in January 2019. At the time, Smollett claimed he was accosted by men who beat him, tied a rope around his neck and allegedly said, “this is MAGA country.” However, it soon came to light that Smollett's alleged attackers were Abel and Ola Osundairo, two men he knew from the production of the FOX drama. According to Page Six, it is the testimony of the two brothers that’s the basis for Smollett’s new calls to dismiss the charges against him. After initially dropping felony charges against him in March 2019, Chicago Judge Michael Toomin ruled the case needed to be investigated by a special prosecutor. As a result, new charges were brought against Smollett in February 2020. However, they relied on testimony transcripts taken from the Osundairo brothers from the case that was dropped. Smollett’s lawyers said the renewed charges based on “illegal and incompetent evidence” should be thrown out.

Sharon Stone Says Robert De Niro Was Her Best On-Screen Kisser

Sharon Stone didn’t hesitate when it came to naming Robert De Niro as her best on-screen kisser. The actors worked together as husband and wife in the 1995 movie "Casino." Stone’s character was a former prostitute-turned-hustler while De Niro played a mob boss of Tangiers Casino. The actress appeared on Andy Cohen's “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday when a caller asked who her best and worst on-screen kissers were. “Robert De Niro was for sure the best kisser,” Stone declared. “Bob was far and away the best kisser.” She explained, “He was the actor that I admired the most. My whole career I just wanted to be able to sit across the table from Robert De Niro and hold my own. Maybe because I just held him in such extraordinary high regard, it was the pinnacle of the kissing moment for me.” “I was just so madly in love with him as an actress to start with that he probably could’ve hit me in the head with a hammer and I would’ve been like, ‘Oh, yeah!’” Stone jokingly said. “It was pretty fabulous.” In comparison to other on-screen kissers, Stone said every kiss she had after De Niro was “just meh.”

Tom Cruise Gets October 2021 Date For NASA/SPACEX Trip To Make Movie On Board International Space Station

Tom Cruise is confirmed for what's probably his most daring mission yet. He will be on board the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule on its scheduled October 2021 trip to the International Space Station, according to Space Shuttle Almanac. The Space Shuttle Almanac tweeted out a graph of the upcoming planned launches to the ISS complete with crew manifests. Aboard the first tourist trip, the schedule notes, will be Cruise and director Doug Liman. NASA and Space Shuttle veteran Michael Lopez-Alegria will be the pilot on the trip and there is one, as yet unfilled, tourist place available in the new four-person Crew Dragon. It had been announced earlier this year that Cruise and Liman had teamed up with SpaceX founder Elon Musk and NASA to make a movie aboard the ISS.

Ellen Degeneres' Apology Monologue Panned By Former Employees

Ellen DeGeneres returned to TV Monday after a summer plagued by a toxic-work-environment scandal. During the show’s season premiere monologue, Ellen apologized for what occurred behind the scenes and promised viewers she’s the person “you see on TV.” Mixed in with her apology, however, were sarcastic jokes about how “terrific” her summer had been and how she was trying to work on her patience — or lack thereof. The result didn’t sit well with the former employees she’s accused of hurting. “Not only did Ellen turn my trauma, turn our traumas, into a joke, she somehow managed to make this about her,” one former employee told BuzzFeed News. “When she said, ‘Oh, my summer was great’ and that was supposed to be funny, I thought, ‘It’s funny that you had a rough summer because everyone was calling out all of the allegations of your toxic work environment and now you’re the one suffering?’” another former employee said. Former employees also felt insulted by Ellen’s “inappropriate jokes” scattered throughout her monologue given that people had come forward and leveled allegations of sexual misconduct against her former producers. “When you’re talking about people who have accused her leadership of the seriousness of sexual misconduct, I don’t think it’s appropriate to have jokes in the monologue,” a former employee told the outlet.

Chris Rock Is In Therapy After Being Diagnosed With Nonverbal Learning Disorder

Chris Rock has been diagnosed with nonverbal learning disorder. The comedian has revealed he struggles to understand non-verbal signals made in conversations, which he says is great for comedy and writing jokes but not more one-on-one relationships. “And all I understand are the words. By the way, all of those things are really great for writing jokes - they're just not great for one-on-one relationships. And I'd always just chalked it up to being famous,” said the comedian adding he has seven hours of therapy a week. “Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I'd think, 'Whatever, they're responding to something that has to do with who they think I am.' Now, I'm realizing it was me. A lot of it was me.” And Chris admits he has never really dealt with his childhood trauma. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he added: “I'm not belittling today's youth, but I wish somebody had sent me a bad text when I was a kid. These m************ were trying to kill me ... I thought I was actually dealing with it, and the reality is I never dealt with it. The reality was the pain and the fear that brought me, I was experiencing it every day.” Chris has also been learning to swim during lockdown. He shared: “Do you know how f****** hard it is for a grown-up to learn how to swim? You've got to not be scared to die. The other day, this guy says to me, 'OK, you're going to dive into the deep end and swim to the other side,' and I'm like, 'Are you f****** crazy?’ But then I dove into the deep end and I swam to the other side, and it's a metaphor for what I've been trying to do during this time.”

Cardi B reveals She's Not Shed One Tear As She Speaks Out About Divorce

Cardi B has not shed one tear after filing for divorce from her husband-of-three-years Offset. The rapper recently began divorce proceedings, but has insisted she is not upset about the break-up. Speaking in an Instagram Live video, she said: “I want to say thank you so much. However, like, I don't really need it. I'm okay. I want to let you know I have not shed not one tear.” Although Offset, who has two-year-old daughter Kulture with Cardi, reportedly cheated in the past, Cardi insisted this split was not caused by him being unfaithful. She said: “This time, I wasn't crying. Wanna know why? The reason my divorce is not because of none of that s*** that ever happened before. It's not because the cheating. I'm seeing people [saying] ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That's a whole f*** complete lie.” Cardi went on to reveal she and Offset called time on their relationship because they were constantly arguing. She said: “I just got tired of f***ing arguing. I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it's not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I rather just be… you know what I'm saying? Like, I'm tired of people.”

Tom Hardy rmored To Replace Daniel Craig As Next James Bond

Tom Hardy could be set to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond, according to new reports. The actor has been one of the bookies favorites to become the next 007 in recent years, and rumors have been circulating he will step into Craig's shoes after his fifth and final film, No Time To Die. The Vulcan Reporter reports they heard in June that Hardy had been offered the iconic part after a successful audition, while bookies odds on the star have now been slashed in half. The publication reports producers had planned to unveil Tom as the 10th James Bond in November- the same month No Time To Die was due to be released. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic the Vulcan Reporter state the announcement will now be made later this year or early 2021.

Dave Bautista Rips Swayne Johnson's Acting Skills

WWE legend turned Hollywood star Dave Bautista has fired shots at Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson by claiming the icon is not a good actor. Bautista has followed the likes of Johnson and John Cena into the movie business after quitting the ring. After a sticky start, Bautista was widely-praised for his performance in “Guardians of the Galaxy” with fans now looking forward to seeing his latest film “Dune.” Cena is also enjoying big success on the silverscreen. But both he and Bautista still have some ways to go to reach the heights of The Rock, who was the highest-paid Hollywood actor last year. However, Bautista has revealed he doesn’t think either Rock or Cena are quality actors. Speaking to the Tampa Bay Times, he said: “[The Rock and John Cena] are wrestlers who became movie stars. I’m something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor.” Bautista, who returned for his retirement match at WrestleMania 35 in 2019 against Triple H, continued: “[The] Rock was, in a way, a movie star before he was even a movie star. There is something about him that’s really special. I’d never take that away from him. “Would I consider him a great actor? F–k no.” Explaining his reasoning, Bautista added: “I want good roles. I don’t care about ‘Fast and Furious’ or ‘Bumblebee.’ That’s not the kind of stardom I want. I want to be in ‘Dune,’ I want to work with Denis Villeneuve. I want to work with Sam Mendes and Jodie Foster, I want to work with Academy Award winners. I’m proud to be a character actor. I want that respect and credibility and education.”

The kids happily head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman.” The teaser promises to cover additional “2020 problems,” and shows the kids with germ barriers around their desks in the classroom, while their teachers have been replaced by cops. Meanwhile, it appears that Cartman will be protesting the idea of returning to school, which he describes as “slavery.” “The Pandemic Special” will air Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. on Comedy Central, but a premiere date for the full season hasn’t been set.

Arnold Schwarzenneger Offers To Pay To Reopen Polling Places In The South

Arnold Schwarzenegger has offered to pay to reopen closed polling places across the Southern United States. The star shared a 2019 article about how 1,200 polling places had closed throughout the South since 2013. Schwarzenegger tweeted: “I've been thinking about this a lot. I'm a fanatic about voting. Most people call closing polls voter suppression. Some say it is 'budgetary.' What if I made it easy & solved the budgetary issue? How much would it cost to reopen polling places? This is a serious question. Is closing polling stations about making it harder for minorities to vote, or is it because of budgets? If you say it's because of your budget, let's talk.” Overall, those states formerly covered by the law have closed at least 1,688 polling places between 2012 and 2018, the Leadership Conference found. A total 1,173 of those polling places were closed after the 2014 election - and after the Supreme Court issued its decision.

"Jeopardy!" Producer Says Ken Jennings Is Not Taking Over For Alex Trebek

“Jeopardy!” champ Ken Jennings was named consulting producer on the long-running game show earlier this month, but executive producer Mike Richards says fans shouldn’t take that as a sign he’s in line to replace host Alex Trebek. “We’re not shopping,” Richards told The Ringer. “Trebek’s our guy, and he’s our guy till he tells us he’s not our guy, and then we can have a different conversation. I just don’t think it’s appropriate to have that conversation until Alex comes to me and says, ‘OK. This is my plan.'” Richards explained that Jennings’ involvement as a producer came about after the “Greatest of All Time” champion said his days as a competitor were over. “I think that he feels like he isn’t as good as he was and he doesn’t want to keep pushing that, because he said he even had a little bit of difficulty in the GOAT episodes,” Richards said.

Madonna Reveals she's Writing A biopic With Diablo Cody

Madonna has disclosed the details of a secret project she has been writing with “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody, and it turns out it is a biopic about the singer’s own life. During an Instagram Live session on Thursday night, the star said that she and Cody have written 107 pages of a script. News of the project first leaked in August but it is still untitled. Madonna said the project will document her coming up as an artist in New York in the early ’80s and her interactions with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Martin Burgoyne. It also touches on her time filming “Evita,” which she says led to an uncomfortable encounter with Andrew Lloyd Webber as she was adapting his stage musical. “Honestly, it’s one of the best times of my life, and one of the worst times. I hope I can portray or express what a thrilling time that was for me in every way,” Madonna said in the video. Madonna further clarified that the movie is not a musical but does feature key moments from her musical career, including scenes of her writing “Like a Prayer” — and the ensuing sponsorship conflict with Pepsi over the song’s music video. Madonna gave no hint as to whom she might be eyeing to play her in the biopic but added that there will be a lot of scenes of the actress singing.
