Off the market! Janel Parrish married her longtime boyfriend, Chris Long, in Hawaii on Saturday, September 8.

“We feel so lucky we found each other in this crazy world,” the Pretty Little Liars alum, 29, tells Us Weekly exclusively in a statement. “Marrying my dream man in my home of Hawaii surrounded by family and friends was a dream.”

The bride looked stunning in a mermaid Inbal Dror gown with a sweetheart neckline, corset bodice and long, feathered train. The pair exchanged self-written vows during the ceremony. Parrish’s sister served as her maid of honor while Long’s brother officiated.

Glenn Nutley and Leslie Fair ensured Parrish and her bridesmaids had flawless hair and makeup. Vintage and Lace Weddings handled planning, coordination and design while 37 Frames Photography captured stunning portraits of the happy couple, who walked down the aisle to a song the actress penned for Long. Abby Co. Design Calligraphy and a local band called The Green also had a hand in the big day.

Pretty Little Liars cast and crew, including Brendan Robinson and Marlene King, were in attendance as well as the bride’s Bratz: The Movie costars Logan Browning and Natalia Ramos. Guests dined on fish, bacon smoked macaroni and cheese, fried rice, Hawaiian sherbet and buttercream cake.

Parrish opened up to Us about her relationship with Long in August. “He just is my person. My soul knows him, I feel like. He’s my best friend in the entire world. And no matter what, if I’m having the worst day ever, I feel like I have somebody who understands me. And even if he doesn’t quite understand me at that moment, he tries to,” she raved at the time. “And that feels so nice.”

She added that she was most looking forward to “making him my husband” and “putting a ring on his finger” when the couple tied the knot.

Parrish — who will next appear in Tiger this fall and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists in 2019 — paid tribute to the chemical engineer on August 29. “This guy right here is the epitome of strength, kindness and love no matter what the circumstance,” she gushed on Instagram. “I’m super lucky I found him and get to marry his ass.”

The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star celebrated a relationship milestone the week before the pair’s wedding. “Two years with you and I still can’t get enough,” she captioned an Instagram video of the duo on Monday, September 3. “Happy Anniversary, @c_long. Soon you’ll be my HUSBAND.”

Parrish counted down to her nuptials with a bachelorette party in San Diego last month. The actress and her friends hung out at Mission Bay Beach and dined at Lionfish Restaurant.

The Dancing With the Stars alum announced her engagement on Instagram in October 2017: “Went to the park for a stroll with Klee and came back with a fiancé. I get to marry my best friend and I’m over the moon. I love you @c_long.”

Rihanna Reportedly ‘Sad’ Over Ex Chris Brown’s Custody Drama – She Once Wanted To Be His Baby Mama

Rihanna is definitely over Chris Brown romantically, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about him. That being said, a new report by HollywoodLife says the singer is sad over her ex’s current custody battle with Nia Guzman.

His baby mama wants Chris to triple the child support he currently pays their 4-year-old daughter Royalty.

One insider tells the outlet that this whole mess has gotten Rihanna remembering how ‘back when she and Chris were still together they used to talk about how many kids they’d have and how cute they’d be. There was a time where Rihanna was certain without a doubt that Chris would be the father of her children.’

As a result, allegedly, ‘It was a bit heart-breaking for her when she found out about Chris having a baby girl with someone else. She always thought if she and Chris had a baby together it’d be adorable and incredibly talented.’

Either way, the source tells HollywoodLife that regardless of what happened between them, she wishes Chris all the best and right now, his life is not the easiest and stress-free.

They went on to claim that ‘As much as she knows that was not meant to be there is still a part of her that wishes they could’ve had their happy ending and their perfect family.’

‘Hearing about Chris dealing with custody issues makes her a little sad, it’s hard not to imagine what it could’ve been like if they had had a little girl together. It isn’t something she dwells on, but the feelings are there so hearing about what is going on with Chris and Royalty triggers her.’

Chris Stapleton’s Wife Hilariously Reacts to Kendall Jenner’s ‘Love’ for the Country Star

Kendall Jenner likes more than just Chris Stapleton‘s music — but luckily for the model, his wife Morgane is a fan of them both.

After the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 22, shared footage from the country star’s Los Angeles concert over the weekend and declared her fan girl status on Instagram Story.

“I love you Chris Stapleton,” Jenner captioned the concert videos, adding, “Call me.”

Then on Monday, Stapleton’s wife Morgane hilariously reacted to the model’s love for her husband.

“When @kendalljenner loves your husband & wants him to call her, but you also have strong love for said KarJenner,” the mother of four wrote on Instagram along with Kendall’s Instagram Story photos.

The Stapletons celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary in October 2017, and welcomed twin boys in April. They are also parents to a son and daughter but have chosen not to publicly reveal their names.

“She was a stalker,” Chris joked in a 2015 interview with Paste when he shared how they met at neighboring Nashville publishing houses in 2003.

This isn’t the first time Jenner has expressed her fondness for country music.

In May, the style star shared a photo of herself in lingerie with a blurred out billboard of Kacey Musgraves’ latest album, Golden Hour.

After fans thought Jenner was being shady towards the country singer, she responded to the backlash on Twitter, writing, “Yoooo, I was working all day and didn’t edit this photo! Kacey is literally my f—in fav! Space cowboy, I Miss You, Keep it to yourself, FOLLOW YOUR ARROW!! bangers!! ask anyone of my homies I die for her!”

Chris Brown And Rita Ora’s Fans Ship Them Big Time After They Flirt On Social Media!

People are already shipping them hard! After a bit of flirting online between Chris Brown and Rita Ora, it looks like fans are freaking out, wishing they would date already!

It all started when Chris shared a pic that featured his mother and his daughter Royalty on his Instagram account.

The two had actually surprised the singer at his Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour’s final performance on August 5, and it was a very sweet moment.

‘ALL DAY🔥🔥🔥🔥,’ Rita commented on the pic, and now people are wondering whether she was celebrating him completing the tour or gushing about the fact that he was not wearing a shirt.

Fans seem to think it is the second possibility, especially because of the multiple fire emojis she added.

MOMMA AND LIL MOMMA SURPRISED ME ❤

A post shared by CHRIS BROWN (@chrisbrownofficial) on

chris-brown-and-rita-ora-postSource: instagram.com

One follower was quick to make it very clear that ‘@ritaora we would love to see you and @chrisbrownofficial as a couple.’

Another also thought that would be a good idea as they commented: ‘can u guys just date already🙏🏽?’

And the fact that Chris was the one who commented on one of her pics first did not escape the excited fans.

‘Lmaoooo Rita playing [Chris] commented on her picture and everything.’

As you may recall, under a pic that showed Rita in a tiny bikini, Chris wrote: ‘ROADMAN TING!!! #PENGGAL.’

In case you don’t know what any of that says, it’s British slang that means something similar to ‘hot gangsta.’

It sounds like Chris is making an effort to actually learn U.K. slang just to impress Rita, so who knows? Maybe something really is brewing between the two.

But the thing is, Rita Ora is reportedly in a relationship with Andrew Watt, so…what is going on here?

CNN’s Chris Cuomo Blasts Trump for ‘Disrespecting’ Dead Journalists

CNN

In the final moments of his first primetime hour on Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo delivered a sharp rebuke of the Trump administration’s decision not to lower flags to half-mast in memory of the five journalists killed in last week’s mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.

Cuomo began by noting that the shooting not only took lives and “shattered families” but also “added another layer of shame on all lawmakers for not doing something to stop the damn shootings.” As the host put it, recent mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland “warranted” flags being lowered outside federal building, so why not this one?

“I’m afraid I know the answer,” Cuomo said. “And it’s because President Trump doesn’t like the media.”

Chris Pratt Talks Plans With Son Jack On Father’s Day And The Moments He Cherishes The Most With The 5-Year-Old

While in attendance at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, the actor opened up about his family time, revealing what is the best kind of moments he spends with his son Jack, 5. Here’s what he had to say!

‘I think my love language is quality time, so when we can just sit down and just be together and spend time with one another, just me and him. That is probably when I am the happiest and when he looks up to me the most,’ Chris Pratt told ET.

As fans know already, Pratt attended the show in order to receive the Generation Award for his contributions to both TV and film through his Parks and Recreation, Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Jurassic World, as well as the newest, Avengers: Infinity War roles.

The star also shared the plans he had for Father’s Day, and it is safe to say it was not as exciting or epic as surviving dinosaurs or traveling the universe to find an Infinity Stone.

However, it is his favorite thing to do with his young son, so that’s great!

‘Church and I am going to lay low and swim in the pool. That is what we are going to do,’ Pratt dished.

We are sure he enjoyed all that leisure time with little Jack.

The proud father seems to really love being a parent and days like these when he can just relax with the boy and make precious memories together are probably pretty rare considering he has a pretty packed schedule.

Make sure to tune in for the MTV Movie and TV Awards that is set to air tomorrow, June 18, on MTV, at 9 P.M.ET/PT!

Is that man at it again?

Singer Chris Brown is facing legal trouble for allegedly hitting and stalking a woman, Page Six reports. 

A woman named Cassandra received a temporary protective order against the 29-year-old after she claimed that after she attended one of his parties, Brown began stalking and hitting her.

According to legal docs filed earlier this week, Cassandra alleged Chris never threatened her with a weapon but has been following her around and hitting her on different days.

The R&B star is ordered to stay 100 yards from the alleged victim. He is also forbidden from contacting her in any way.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos said to the site, “This is sad because it’s obviously the disjointed ranting of someone Chris doesn’t know who has mental health issues. This just creates celebrity meet and greets with deranged fans, and perhaps the Court may want to engage their Mental Health Department.”

A hearing for the case is set for July 3rd.

Alicia Silverstone Files for Divorce From Estranged Husband Chris Jarecki

Making it official. Alicia Silverstone filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Chris Jarecki, three months after the pair announced their split, Us Weekly confirms.

“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years,” the 41-year-old Clueless star’s publicist told E! News in a statement in February. “They have a son together who they will continue to coparent.”

However, according to the court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Silverstone listed their date of separation as March 15, 2016. The duo, who wed in 2005, welcomed son Bear Blu in 2011. The American Women star requested both joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.

While Silverstone and the S.T.U.N. frontman kept their relationship private even before they called it quits, the actress has shared a few photos of Bear on social media. Most recently, Silverstone documented her February vacation to Hawaii with her son.

“So fun playing in the water with Bear. Swimming, boogie boarding and just savoring. We’ve been staying at my friend’s home while he is away,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “Driving around in his big truck was fun in the rain and mud. Bear and I played with this adorable little man we met on the beach with his beautiful mom. And somehow, even cleaning the kitchen (constantly) and doing laundry here is fun.”

The Blast was the first to report the news of Silverstone’s filing.

Chris Hemsworth dancing to Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” (which may or may not be about his brother) is a gift

Hi, hello there. Having a particularly long week? Stressed that it’s somehow only Thursday? We here at HelloGiggles feel you. That’s why, on this blessed day, we’re gifting you video footage of Chris Hemsworth dancing to his future sister-in-law Miley Cyrus’ breakup anthem, “Wrecking Ball” with his three children in their living room. Because we all deserve to see the Hemsworth family dog bewildered by insane dancing.

Sure, Chris is known for his tough-guy Thor muscles and for wielding superhero powers, but the man has some seriously sweet dance moves, and it’s everything we never knew we needed in life. He shared the  hilarious video to his Twitter account, and we’re thanking Odin he did. (Again, the best part? Probably the dog. But also maybe the kids. Actually no — we love EVERYTHING about this equally).

While it’s never been officially confirmed, it’s widely speculated that Miley wrote “Wrecking Ball” after her temporary breakup with Chris’s younger brother, Liam. But it seems there’s no awkwardness here, because Chris tagged his baby bro and future sister-in-law in the video.

And how did Miley feel about older bro Chris hitting peak dad status by breaking it down to one of her most iconic songs? She loved it, of course, sharing the clip to her Twitter page, red heart emojis all around.

And because it is Thursday, we’ll bless you again, this time with a throwback clip of Chris showing off his moves on Season 5 of Australia’s Dancing with the Stars, which, coincidentally, aired just as “Wrecking Ball” hit number one on the charts.

And in case you’re still in need of a throwback moment today, here’s the “Wrecking Ball” video, which still hits us right in the feels.

If his career as an Avenger ever fizzles, at least we know Chris has some impressive dance skills to fall back on…and Miley’s got no shortage of hits for him to break it down to.

From Craig Mack to Chris Cornell: A Requiem for Mid-‘90s Music

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

Former Bad Boy star Craig Mack’s death on March 12, reportedly from congestive heart failure at the age of 46, was a shock to so many fans of the Brentwood-born rapper who’d shot to stardom in 1994 on the success of his single “Flava In Ya Ear” and its classic remix. His former producer Alvin Toney and longtime friend, fellow hip-hop veteran Erick Sermon, shared that Mack had heart problems that finally claimed his life but he’d spent his last years shunning the spotlight and keeping his problems away from media attention.

The death of Craig Mack joins what seems like a litany of fallen artists who defined so much of mid-‘90s music. For a certain age group, 1994-1996 were epochal years—that period when genres like “alternative rock” and “gangsta rap” were firmly set in the mainstream, having broke through big in the early 1990s. R&B had undergone a metamorphosis, as well, with the decline of new jack swing and the rise of an even more street-oriented sensibility via urban acts like Mary J. Blige and Jodeci. But if you remember those years vividly, it’s hard not to feel a part of that era has been gutted by early death. Hell, that period was defined by martyrdom, to a certain degree.

Of course, the biggest popular music-related story of 1994 was the April 5 suicide of Kurt Cobain that year. The Nirvana frontman had spent more than two years as the most hyper-scrutinized rocker on the planet, and the pressures of fame and his own deteriorating emotional and physical state led him down a dark path that ended in heroin and a heartbreaking note to his fans. The suicide came just a few months after the release of In Utero, Nirvana’s third album, and their soon-to-be-acclaimed live album MTV Unplugged In New York would be released in November. With music videos for songs like “All Apologies” and “Heart-Shaped Box” in steady rotation on MTV, Cobain’s death at 27 became a flashpoint for rock music and youth culture. While at the time, he seemed to be among the last of the rock stars that truly mattered, in the years since, so many of his contemporaries have also left this world far too soon, and Cobain is now one of several of the lost voices of the mid-1990s.

Franchise favourite Chris Redfield has returned in the Not a Hero DLC, and is teaming up with a newly staffed Blue Umbrella corporation to clean up the rest of the mess around Baker Ranch.

The first act of Resident Evil 7 was lauded as the series getting back to its grand, horrific roots. It was minimal — just a backwater house, with a family who liked to eat people. The son rigged everything with explosives. The daughter turned out to be evil and moldy. The mum gave birth to insects. So, y’know. Typical Louisiana family.

As the game went on, it got more into the “superpowerful evil little girl” trope. As you learned more about what was happening, the mystery was slowly lost. It was one of those endings that was epic on paper, but what players would talk about to their friends was that memorable first act.

Back Into the Mines

Redfield begins this DLC looking for Lucas Baker, the crafty engineer who is shown to attempt to transfer his E-type data to bioterrorist organisation The Connection. Three of Redfield’s agents have already had a rough time against Baker, who has fled into a nearby mining tunnel. It’s time to settle the vendetta.

It’s a section of tunnel that’ll look familiar to anyone who experienced the main campaign, and the repeated level design is forgivable in a free DLC package. One thing’s for sure though, new stuff is being done with this space.

Lucas Baker is best known for his “escape room” sequence in the main campaign, which forced you to solve puzzles to attempt to get out alive. Baker has set up these mining tunnels in much the same way, which is an enticing reason to try out this DLC.


Resident Evil 7 DLC Not a Hero
Not a problem you can shoot your way through

There are practical jokes with lethal punchlines. There are puzzles and traps. And there are several instances of “I know he wants me to push that button, but… What else can I do?”

Sections of the mines will require different items, in a mini-Metroidvania way. One tunnel is lousy with contamination, so you can’t get far without a gas mask filter. Another tunnel is dark, not allowing you to see tripwires without nightvision.

The latter of these is a lame excuse to gate content. I was able to see well enough to walk through the tunnel, and could certainly make out an elevator button in front of me. On pressing the Use key, Redfield would just say “Is something there?”

Same Enemy, New Trick

Not a Hero introduces a new kind of molded as well. Covered in white, this new enemy isn’t as strong as a normal molded, but can’t be damaged by normal bullets. You’ll have to run from the first few that you see, until you discover the RAMROD bullets.

On paper, these stop a white molded from regenerating. But I found that only applied to bosses. The vast majority of white molded will die to one RAMROD, even if it’s in the chest.

As you might expect, RAMRODs are rarer than normal bullets. You’re certainly provided with enough — but things get tricky when Not a Hero starts mixing up the enemy types.

With a few crawling molded getting ready to jump at you, and one big white molded lumbering in your direction, you’ll need to switch weapons and ammo types quickly. It’s all about using the right tool for the right job, and you don’t have forever to fumble around changing clips.


Resident Evil 7 DLC Not a Hero molded
Some of these will spawn indefinitely

I never found myself short of ammunition, largely thanks to the return of the Redfield punch. Most shots will stagger a molded — even body shots — at which point pressing the fire button in close range will trigger a haymaker for a guaranteed kill.

Somehow, Not a Hero combines the best and worst parts of Resident Evil 7. Lucas Baker is a great villain, and his escape room antics are very present. But the more it veers towards global conspiracies, and trying to come up with plausible explanations for its horror, the less interesting it becomes.

Thankfully there’s a lot more of the former, and less of the latter. Not a Hero is free if you have Resident Evil 7, and should take you two hours or less to play through.

Chris Pratt Files for Divorce From Anna Faris

Making it official. Chris Pratt filed for divorce from Anna Faris on Friday, December 1, Us Weekly can confirm.

Pratt, who cited irreconcilable differences, listed July 13 as the date of separation. Faris, 41, filed her response to the divorce at the same time.

The former couple, who are both asking for joint custody of their 5-year-old son Jack, announced their separation in a joint statement on August 6.

“We are sad to announce we are legally separating,” the Mom star wrote on Instagram at the time. “We tried really hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep the situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy star, 38, shared a similar statement on Facebook, and added that the duo “continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”

Pratt and Faris tied the knot in 2009 after meeting on the set of Take Me Home Tonight two years earlier.

Faris opened up about their split on Live With Kelly and Ryan in October.

“We’re great, and he’s amazing,” Faris said. “We’re great friends and we always will be. It’s so true, it’s so true. Life is too short.”

The House Bunny actress has since been linked to cinematographer Michael Barrett. The rumored couple were spotted holding hands in Venice, Italy, last month.

Chris Brown Has His Eyes On J. Lo & He’s Not Hiding It!

Chris Brown had no shame in an interview with Power 105.1 in New York as he talked about getting sweaty palms when he saw Jennifer Lopez.

The Fine China singer and Lopez are apart of Jay-Z’s Tidal-X concert in Brooklyn that features various artist to perform and raise money for victims of the terrible hurricane season.

While at the station to promote his new album Heartbreak on a Full Moon coming out soon, he needed no introduction in letting us know how he feels about Lopez.

“J.Low bad man, ” he said nonchalantly. “I’m just letting her know — hey, look, I might have just stiffened up a little bit back at the little show because it was a lot of people back there, and I was nervous,” he said. “My palms were sweaty. I said, ‘Hi.’ But, I like you and I want you.”

Breezy is really feeling J.Lo, but unfortunately, he’ll have to keep those feelings to himself. Lopez is currently being wooed by baseball player Alex Rodriguez. And from the looks of it, she seems to be enjoying herself.

But wait a minute, Lopez is supposed to be in Breezy’s music video, so is there a chance? Probably not! Check out his interview below and skip to 31:24 to see him gush over J.Lo!

Who is Chris Brown?

Chris Brown is an American R&B singer and songwriter whose hit songs include Run It!, With You, Turn Up The Music and Fine China.

Although he has received critical acclaim for his music, Brown’s personal life has hit headlines just as much.

He pleaded guilty to felony for attacking ex-girlfriend Rihanna and is now set to be taken to court by another ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, over domestic violence claims.

Tran claims the popstar kicked her down a flight of stairs, punched her in the stomach, threatened to shoot her and made death threats to her.

Nightclub photographer Bennie L. Vines also reportedly considered bringing charges against Brown after the singer allegedly punched him for taking photos during a promotional appearance.

While he was also arrested in a dramatic stand-off at his home in 2016 after beauty pageant winner Baylee Curran accused him of pointing a gun at her head.

When did he attack Rihanna?

Chris Brown and Rihanna were in a relationship from 2008-2009, having been friends before they became romantically involved.

Brown has described their relationship as volatile and claimed they were were always fighting.

A domestic violence case was brought against him in 2009 after he attacked Rihanna in their car, dealing her facial injuries so severe she required hospital treatment.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of felony assault and was sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence counselling, and six months of community service.

He was also handed a five-year restraining order requiring him to remain 50 yards away from Rihanna at all times, reducing to 10 at public events.

There was some backlash against Brown following his conviction resulting in radio stations pulling his music from their playlists, however he has still had a successful music career.

He has admitted busting Rihanna’s lip and leaving her “spitting blood” as he attacked her in documentary Welcome To My Life.

It combines concert footage with behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with other stars like Usher, DJ Khaled, Mike Tyson, and Rita Ora.

Chris Brown Addresses Rihanna Incident In Detail In New Doc

Chris Brown is years past his infamous incident with Rihanna but he’s still struggling to accept his actions on that much-publicized night. Now that his probation is over and both have moved on in their lives and careers, Brown has decided to finally address the rumors of what happened that night in detail.

In his new documentary, Welcome To My Life, Brown details the events of the early morning hours of February 8, 2009 when a then 19-year-old Brown and his 20-year-old girlfriend got into a physical altercation in his car in the streets of Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood. The end result of that was Brown’s arrest and the viral photo of a battered Rihanna which impacted both their careers. He ultimately pled guilty to felony assault and completed his probation in March of 2015.

Since then, he’s had other issues – violating that probation at one point, getting accused of assault in a bizarre incident at his home, and having a restraining order granted to his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who also accused him of abuse and threatening her.

Brown tells his side of the story in detail for the first time below, confirming many of the rumors about the incident:

While Rihanna hasn’t publicly responded to Brown’s video, she did post this on her Instagram yesterday.

Coincidence?

Anna Faris sends a heartfelt message to fans following her split from Chris Pratt

And it’s pretty emotional.

chris pratt anna faris

It was announced last week that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are separating, with the couple confirming their divorce after eight years of marriage.

The actors, who share a four-year-old son together, took to their social media pages last week to issue a joint statement, breaking the news to their fans and followers.

‘We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.’

The statement continued: ‘Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.’

Both Chris and Anna have remained quiet since the news broke, keeping relatively low profiles, but with one of the 40-year-old actress’ podcast episodes airing today, Anna took the opportunity to speak out to her fans.

While the podcast episodes are pre-taped, with this episode featuring Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, Anna added a recording to the start of this week’s episode to thank her fans and friends for their support and love.

‘Hey dear listeners, I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving,’ she opened the podcast. ‘I truly love you.’

This week also saw Chris Pratt speak out publicly for the first time since the split, attending the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday and accepting the Sci-Fi Movie Actor award for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. 

‘Wow, thank you! I love you too,’ he announced to the crowd after being presented the award by Stranger Things actress Mille Bobby Brown. ‘Thank you.’

Yesterday, the Roc Nation honcho dropped a documentary titled “Footnotes for MaNyfaCedGod,” which is part of the Neil Brennan-directed series which looks at the meaning behind each track on JAY’s 4:44 album. This video explores the theme of masculinity and patriarchy and features the likes of Anthony Anderson, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, Jesse Williams, Meek Mill and more.

“We can’t go to a therapist. You crazy at that point. A psychiatrist? You crazy. No, you need help,” Jigga shares in the clip. “Three of your brothers are dead, your mother used to beat you, you need help. Someone needs to talk you through while you are feeling these feelings.”

“I think as we look at our relationships and we look at f*cking trying to be something for other people, specifically men, it’s this barrage of, ‘You gotta be the man in a relationship,'” Jesse Williams added. “What does that mean? Does that mean have courage? And courage to do what? Does that mean be a leader? Be a leader how? Does that mean be physically strong? Because the weakest people that I’ve met in my life have been physically strong men.”

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are still living together despite their divorce

What does this mean?

Last week our worlds were shattered when news broke that everyone’s favourite comedic couple Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have split up.

The couple have decided to divorce after eight years of marriage, announcing the heartbreaking news by sharing a statement on their social media channels.

The statement read: ‘We are really sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.’

News of their split has left many devastated, including the couple’s close friend Patti Stranger who still has hope for a reunion between the two.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Patti revealed that Chris and Anna are in fact still living together following their separation and that gives her hope that the pair may be able to solve whatever issues they’re currently having.

‘I want them to get back together. So I’m not fixing them up – I would just be the counsellor between them and go, ‘what really is the issue here?’ Patti, who is known for her matchmaking abilities, said.

‘Because she’s living in the house, so someone threw out the curveball, maybe the publicist, I don’t know who… you just don’t really say something when they’re still living in the house together.

If Pratt’s still in the house, there’s hope. If the person doesn’t leave the house, there’s a lot of hope there.’ She added.

‘That means they still love each other… It’s just they don’t want to love each other. There’s a lot of best friend factor there. They’re very close as BFFs,’ explained Patti.

Well, we hope she’s right!

Chris Christie Commends His Self-Restraint After Getting in a Heckler’s Face: ‘I Didn’t Dump the Nachos On Him’

Leave it to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to find the upside to a tense, nacho-related confrontation.

The embattled politician made headlines in recent days when a photo emerged of him getting in the face of a fan while cradling a bowl of nachos at Sunday’s Brewers-Cubs game at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Now, Christie is patting himself on the back for the restraint he showed during the exchange.

“ those of you who know me, I think I was fairly restrained,” Christie said Wednesday during a news conference in Trenton, reports NJ.com. “I didn’t dump the nachos on him or anything, which was an option.”

Christie, 54, mockingly told the fan “you’re a big shot” in an exchange captured on video and widely shared via Twitter. It was the second time in a two-week period that the governor had an awkward encounter at a MLB event: On July 18 he was mercilessly booed after catching a foul ball at a Mets game.

Even so, the governor — whose son Andrew works for the Brewers organization — was defiant when asked whether he’s “swearing off” big league games for good.

“No, I’ll go more,” he retorted.

The fan, Brad Joseph, shared a lengthy Facebook post about the incident, apologizing for yelling “You suck” at the governor while also offering additional details about the heated exchange. Joseph, who said he is a registered Republican and voted for Donald Trump, said he does not apologize for calling Christie a “hypocrite.”

Christie, meanwhile, further defended his conduct during the confrontation — which comes just weeks after he was sharply criticized for images that showed him lounging on a New Jersey state beach he had closed to the public over the July 4 weekend because of a budget-related government shutdown.

“When I’m at a baseball game with my son on a Sunday afternoon, I do have a right to be able to sit there and enjoy the game,” Christie said, per NJ.com.

“The fact is I’ve made this my policy over eight years: I will take a certain amount of abuse. If you’re a public official, you have to,” he said. “But usually it’s one. You get one shot to call me a name or curse me out. And I gave him that shot.”
