While the two have been paired on stage more than once, it’s hard to imagine Elton John and Eminem speaking to each other in a personal or even social circumstance. However, as it turns out Elton John has been a tremendous figure in Eminem’s life. In a recent interview with the Detroit Metro Times, Eminem revealed that Elton John played a significant role in getting him off of drugs. “Me and him have had similar lives and stuff.

During a sit-down with SiriusXM’s Morning Mash Up show, Payne said he and Cheryl came up with the name together after she chose their baby’s unique first name.
At first, however, the singer was set on something a bit more traditional.
“It was going to be James, I was going to name him, because my middle name’s James,” he said. “I was gonna give him my middle name, but I like Grey. »

Honestly, I can't tell you the last time I enjoyed Cheryl this much in a single episode.
Of all the different themes that this show has visited, this is easily the best take of Cheryl.
Cheryl isn't my favorite character. While I find her insanity hilarious, there were times in the past few seasons where she just became too much for me.
I did not enjoy her iteration as country singer Cherlene (I found "Outlaw Country!" grating), and, to be truthful, I don't remember her being that outstanding in Archer Season 5 or when they joined the FBI.
Cheryl Vandertunt, publishing heiress, is an incredibly interesting version of the character. There are things about her that remain the same: her penchant for sadomasochism, her flight of thought and flippant tangentially. Typical Cheryl.

Scarjo Defends Ghost In The Shell
One of the big talking points coming out of the casting of Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell was the reported “whitewashing” of the role. Many have come out to defend the casting, and now Johansson herself has spoken out about it. “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person,” she said in an interview. “Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.” Read more about that here.

It’s legend now, but there was a time when Joel Schumacher was working on a follow-up to Batman & Robin, which was green-lit when Warner Bros. were ecstatic with the dailies that were coming back from its production. Since then we’ve heard many rumours about who was going to play certain roles, but a new story has come out today that has taken us all a bit by surprise.
“The only reason I did that part was because they promised me the villain part in the following Batman,” Coolio said in this interview (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Which they didn’t do because Joel Schumacher – they fired him. Me and him didn’t get along that great anyway… [In] the next »
