Ed Sheeran's Fifth Album Is Ready To Go

Ed Sheeran's fifth album looks set to be released next year. Ed releases his new LP “=” on Friday, but his manager Stuart Camp teased that fans won't have long to wait before they hear the follow-up. Speaking about Ed’s 2022 tour in support of the record and his future music plans, Stuart is quoted by The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column as saying: “This tour is going to span three or four years, and there will be another record within that cycle, that was always the plan. It’s more a question of stopping him putting another record out the week after this one.” Stuart said: “The material is there and it won’t be another four-year wait, I can promise you. Ed already knows what the next album is. He’s already got a track-listing for it, and I will get that changed over the next 12 months. Ed writes so many songs, and he wants to get them out, he doesn’t want them just sitting on his hard drive.”

Kristen Stewart Thinks She's Only Made Five Good Movies

Kristen Stewart thinks she's only made five really good movies. The actress, who began acting when she was just 12 years old - admitted she isn't a fan of much of her work, despite having starred in dozens of movies. She said: "It's a total crap shoot. I've probably made five really good films, out of 45 or 50 films? Ones that I go, 'Wow, that person made a top-to-bottom beautiful piece of work!'" Among her favorite films she's made are her collaborations with director Olivier Assayas, “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Personal Shopper.” The others she liked, she added to the Sunday Times newspaper: “I’d have to look at my credit list. But they are few and far between. That doesn’t mean I regret the experience [of making them]."

Transgender Comedian Backs Dave Chappelle

A transgender comedian is supporting Dave Chappelle after his jokes targeting trans people in a new Netflix special drew backlash. Flame Monroe, a stand-up from Chicago, told CNN that she “absolutely [does] believe that you should be able to make jokes about trans folks” in an interview published on Sunday. Chappelle and Netflix caught heat over his new special, The Closer, in which he crudely compared the genitals of trans women to plant-based meat alternatives and said that he was “team TERF,” a reference to feminists who reject the identity of trans women. “As a trans person and a comedian, we mostly crack jokes about who we are and how we identify in my experience, and I'm only speaking for me,” Flame told CNN. “You can't ask for inclusion 24/7 and then conveniently want to be excluded because some truths are being told in a comedic fashion about your community.” (You have some trans people who are offended and some who aren’t! Confusing?)

Alec Baldwin Discharged Prop Gun That Killed 'Rust' Crew Member On Film Set

An accident on the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie "Rust" at the Bonanza Creek Ranch on the outskirts of Sante Fe, New Mexico, sent two members of the film crew to the hospital. One of them, a woman, died. A press release from the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department said deputies were called to the set around 1:50 p.m. local time, and the call indicated that someone had been shot. Investigators said that the prop firearm was being used during filming when it was discharged by Baldwin, hitting his director of photography, Halyna Hutchins and director Joel Souza. Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged. According to the media release, one shooting victim – a 42-year-old female – was transported via helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she later died. The second victim – a 42-year-old male – was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent’s Hospital, where he had emergency treatment. A production spokesperson from Rust Movie Productions LLC told Deadline in a statement that the accident involved "the misfire of a prop gun with blanks" and that "production has been halted for the time being."

Here Are The Changes Larry David Would Make If He Were NFL Commissioner

Larry David is a big football fan. Larry appeared on The Rich Eisen Show on Wednesday to share numerous hot takes on the state of the NFL. During the conversation, Larry David was asked what changes he would make to the NFL if he were commissioner. “Number one, and I really don’t care if people like it or not, I’m losing the goal posts,” David replied. “Why are there goal posts? Why are kickers… who don’t have football skills, they’re not football players, but I’m sure they’re wonderful people, why are they kicking the ball through goal posts to decide games? It doesn’t make any sense at all! First of all, goal posts are a relic from the old English rugby, I think. You know, when they used to actually run and kick a ball through a goal post, but they don’t do that in the NFL. There’s no need for goal posts. Wouldn’t the game be better without them? Think about it. Why not just have leaping frogs to decide games? See if a frog can leap through a little goal post that you set up, okay, on the floor, and if the frog can leap through the goal post then do that… why kick it through a goal post? Feet are deciding games and they shouldn’t,” David continued. “Why should one player, one player with this skill, like the guy on the Ravens… why should this one player who does nothing but kick a ball be deciding games when you have, how many people on a football team? When you have 52 other players who are actually playing and this one person, this 53rd person is deciding games, it makes no sense whatsoever.”

Britney Spears's Dad Hires new Attorneys After He's Suspended From Conservatorship

Britney Spears's father, Jamie Spears, has new legal counsel now that he's been suspended as conservator of the singer's multimillion dollar estate. It's unclear whether he was dropped by his longtime attorneys ahead of potential lawsuits, or if it was his decision.
 
"We are proud of our work on behalf of Jamie Spears and stand by his and our actions. We continue to have a good relationship, and are pleased that we have been able to help Jamie find new counsel. I am confident that Jamie's new counsel will continue to prove that he has always acted in Britney's best interests every step of the way," Jamie's former lawyer, Vivian L. Thoree of Holland & Knight LLP, tells Yahoo Entertainment in a statement on Thursday.
 
Jamie filed court documents last week to have Alex Weingarten, a partner in Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP's litigation department, represent him moving forward. (Weingarten did not respond to Yahoo's request for comment.)
 
Page Six cited unnamed sources who claim that Holland & Knight dropped Jamie over concerns about future lawsuits once the conservatorship is terminated — and that could happen at the next hearing on Nov. 12.
 
Things have moved quickly since Britney was able to appoint her own lawyer, former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart. 
 
Rosengart claimed in court last month that Jamie has abused Britney since childhood and made it clear that he wants the elder Spears investigated for his handling of the conservatorship over the last 13 years. If some allegations are true — such as, allegedly, Jamie illegally recorded his daughter in private moments — then he could face criminal charges. Rosengart also accused Jamie of dissipating Britney's fortune. 
 
But could Jamie face jail time for his alleged misconduct?
 
"Jamie Spears and others face more than claims for monetary damages," California-based family law attorney Christopher C. Melcher of Walzer Melcher told Yahoo Entertainment. "Criminal liability exists for the interception of electronic communications and the recording of private activity." 
 
If Jamie did secretly monitor Britney, he likely didn't act alone.  
 
"Anyone who participated or conspired with him could also be charged. Each act could carry its own penalties, and this could have gone on for years," added Melcher.
 
Certified public accountant John Zabel has temporarily replaced Jamie and has access to previous documents and correspondence.
 
Britney has taken to Instagram in recent weeks to blast her family. She previously said her "dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management … they should be in jail."

Ricky Gervais Wants To Live Long Enough To See 'Woke' Generation Cancelled By The Next One

Ricky Gervais says he wants to live long enough to see the young people of today called out by the next generation. Gervais isn’t a fan of cancel culture and is unimpressed by “snowflakes” or “woke” people who are easily offended, and see older people as having outdated views. He told neuroscientist Sam Harris on the Absolutely Mental podcast: “I wanna live long enough to see the younger generation not be woke enough for the next generation. It's going to happen. Don't they realize that, it's like, they're next. That's what's funny. We kicked out the old guard. We did it. There's only so woke and liberal you can get and then you start going the other way. But it's inevitable.”

Milano tweeted, “I was just arrested for demanding the Biden Administration and the Senate to use their mandate to protect voting rights.

New Trailer For "The Batman" Is Out

“The Batman” debuted a brand new trailer at DC FanDome on Saturday, showing off the best look yet at Robert Pattinson’s take on the Dark Knight and promising an even darker, grittier version of Gotham’s Caped Crusader than any that have hit film before.

The movie will hit theaters on March 4, 2022.

Prince Estate Releases 'Do Me, Baby' Demo

The Prince Estate released a new demo from the late singer's archives. The Prince Estate and Warner Records released Prince's 1979 recording of "Do Me, Baby" yesterday in honor of the 40th anniversary of his album Controversy. The "Do Me, Baby" demo is performed entirely by Prince, who sings and plays all the instruments. The song is available to stream and is also being released as a special replica cassette single (limited to 1,981 units) and a 7" single pressed on purple vinyl. Prince first recorded the song with André Cymone in 1978. The demo is Prince's reimagining of the track as a solo recording, performed in April 1979 at Alpha Studios in North Hollywood.

The album was released in October 1981 and also features the singles "Controversy," "Sexuality" and "Let's Work."

Olivia Rodrigo Feeling The Pressure To Make Successful Sophomore Album

Olivia Rodrigo is already feeling the pressure to make a successful sophomore album. She achieved overnight success earlier this year with her debut single Drivers License and followed it up with the album Sour. Sitting down for a chat with Alanis Morissette for Rolling Stone magazine, Rodrigo admitted she was already thinking about the pressure of delivering a worthy follow-up. "Pressure of a sophomore album is something that I've been thinking about a lot, too. I don't know if you felt that pressure," she said, to which Morissette replied, "After Jagged Little Pill, everywhere I went, every grocery store ever was, 'When's your next record? I hate men, too!' I didn't want to write it right away. There's a lot of pressure to rise to some odd occasion or bar."

Piers Morgan's Harsh Words For Mick Jagger

Piers Morgan is pissed that the Rolling Stones removed the song “Brown Sugar” from their U.S. tour setlist over criticism of racist lyrics. “Grow a pair, Mick (no apologies to any wokies offended by this phrase), stand up to the woke bullies, and sing Brown Sugar loudly and proudly at the rest of your shows,” Morgan wrote in a column for “Daily Mail”. Piers wrote a piece titled: “I’m getting no satisfaction from seeing the Rolling Stones surrender to the woke brigade when the charts are full of rappers glorifying violent sex, misogyny and guns, why is Brown Sugar the song that’s deemed offensive?” Morgan called the Stones’ move a “cowardly climbdown.” “Let me make the case for the defense on the Stones’ behalf: there is nothing racist about Brown Sugar,” Morgan continued. “It’s a song, as Richards says, that highlights the appalling historical reality of slavery, not one that celebrates it. It depicts female slaves being sold, whipped and raped in America’s south.” Morgan defended the song and “the two men who actually wrote [“Brown Sugar”] in the first place and who have famously championed black music artists more than any band in history.” He also commented about the song’s background and disputed origins. “Whatever the truth, Brown Sugar is demonstrably a song aimed at defending and supporting black women, not one that seeks to denigrate them or make light of slavery,” Morgan wrote. “But the woke-fueled narrative will now be that the song IS racist, so the Stones are therefore racist, and they’ve abandoned performing it because they accept these assertions. What utter nonsense.”

Shatner Goes To Space

William Shatner went to space yesterday and returned safely with three crew members aboard a Blue Origin capsule launched from West Texas. Shatner, 90, became the oldest person ever to reach space. The New Shepard rocket that carried the crew lifted off into a mostly sunny sky from the company's Launch Site One about 160 miles east of El Paso. The capsule touched down 11 minutes later after reaching space and descending back to the Texas dessert. "That was unlike anything you described, unlike anything I've experienced," Shatner was heard saying on a live broadcast during descent. He appeared overcome with emotion after the flight as he thanked Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos, who pinned astronaut wings on the four crew members. Shatner said viewing Earth's atmosphere made him feel it was fragile -- a "sliver" of precious air. "Everyone needs to see the blue down there, and the black up there. It was so moving to me," Shatner said. "What you have given me is the most profound experience," he told Bezos. "I'm so emotional about what just happened."
