Nancy Wilson, Grammy-Winning Jazz Singer and TV Personality, Dies at 81
Nancy Wilson, one of the most revered jazz singers of the 20th century, has died, her manager told the Associated Press. She was 81.

The singer passed away at her home in Pioneertown, a small California community north of Palm Springs, after a long illness, according to manager Devra Hall.

Wilson’s three Grammy awards spanned a more than 40-year period, with her first coming in 1965 in the Best Rhythm & Blues category for her Capitol single “How Glad I Am.” Her last was in 2007, awarded for Best Jazz Vocal Album for “Turned to Blue,” her final release. (She had seven nominations in all.) Wilson’s recording career actually dates back to 1959, when she released “Like in Love,” an album arranged by the legendary Billy May.

Outside of the music intelligentsia, Wilson may be remembered by millions of TV viewers who recall her 1974-75 NBC variety series, “The Nancy Wilson Show,.” She

The 2 Big Lessons Karamo Brown Learned While Filming Queer Eye Will Make You Emotional
If you're anything like us, rewatching Queer Eye episodes on a loop is very much a lifestyle. After all, there's no such thing as too much of the Fab 5, right? Recently, Karamo Brown drove me around New York City in a brand-new 2019 Ford Edge - that can literally parallel park itself using Active Park Assist - and discussed everything he's learned from filming three seasons of the show to Ford's new survey on holiday stress. And yup, we're more obsessed than ever before.

"[I've learned] two lessons from being on Queer Eye. [The first] is that we all had the ability to grow," he told Popsugar. "I think sometimes we look at people of a certain age, certain political backgrounds, or whatever it may be, and we assume that's just who they are.

Meghan Markle officially joined the royal family in May, and in the months since, she's made her mark with her first royal tour alongside Prince Harry and her first solo project.

It was previously reported that she gets along well with most members of the family - yes, even Kate Middleton! - but in recent months, there have been rumors of drama.

Mary Poppins Returns Doesn't Have a Postcredits Scene but Does Have a Sweet Reference

  • Popsugar
If you're not a fan of waiting through every movie's end credits in case there's a postcredits scene, you'll love Mary Poppins Returns: the latest Disney film does not include a scene during or after the end credits. But if you're a longtime Disneyphile, it's still worth sticking around until the end of the credits for one practically perfect reason.

As with many movies, the music that plays over the end credits of Mary Poppins Returns is a "suite" reprising the major songs and musical motifs from the rest of the film. Most of the five-minute piece of music uses motifs from the new movie's score, by Broadway and TV veterans Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. But if you stay until the very end, one of the last things you'll hear is something very familiar indeed: the melody line of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from the original 1964 film!

"I wanted to show all of me."

"The talk show is me, but I'm also playing a character of a talk-show host," DeGeneres said, explaining why she's returning to stand-up after a 15-year hiatus. "I wanted to show all of me."

This Theory About Mary Poppins and Bert's Relationship Will Completely Change Your Childhood

Most of us are familiar with the classic story of Mary Poppins, but what about the nanny's life before she tended to the Banks children? While little is known about her past, it's pretty clear that Mary has been to Cherry Tree Lane before. Not only is she familiar with the town, but she's awfully friendly with the chimney sweep, Bert. Though the state of Mary and Bert's relationship has always been a little fuzzy, a popular theory has recently resurfaced ahead of Mary Poppins Returns explaining their interesting bond: Mary Poppins (played by Julie Andrews in the original and Emily Blunt in the sequel) was actually Bert's nanny when he was a kid.

In the very beginning of the film, Bert sets the story by telling the audience, "Wind's in the East/Mist coming in/like something is brewing/about to begin./Can't put me finger/on what lies
