Robin Williams Biography Coming Out

There's a new Robin Williams biography coming out and Billy Crystal talks about Robin calling him to tell him he was sick - but of course he thought he had Parkinson's, though it was a misdiagnosis and he had Lewy Body Dementia. Billy said he'd never heard Robin afraid like that before. The whole biography seems fascinating: turns out he was insecure over Jim Carrey's success, and it also goes into his infidelities, his marriages and his battle to stay sober. The book is out May 15.

Then Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence rounded out the top five, each making $15M for Barbie and Red Sparrow, respectively. 

 

Taylor Swift Talks Kanye/Kim Feud 

Taylor Swift kicked off her tour last night and addressed the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West feud. She didn't say their names, but she did focus on how it was a hard time for her when everyone started calling her a snake, and she honestly didn't know if she would get to tour anymore. She had a great thing to say to her fans. 

 

 

Like her boyfriend Joe was there to support her last night. In fact, she pointed at him during her song Gorgeous. Oh, and Katy Perry - who of course she used to feud with - sent her a literal olive branch, with a handwritten note. Taylor posted it on social media with the caption "Thank You Katy." From what we can read, the note said "Hey old friend, I have been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hurt feelings between us. I really want to clear the air." It then says that she's deeply sorry about something but we can't really see what. OK, so that's over. (PS: cute to note that Katy sealed the envelope with a sticker of a dog that looks like her dog.)

Ludacris of all people was nominated as well, thanks to a duet he did with Carrie Underwood. Little Big Town is hosting the show and it'll take place June 6th.

Yikes. Calvin Harris and his girlfriend got into a car accident the other day. There's disputes about how this happened -- it's originally reported that it was the girlfriend's fault, but who knows.

Bieber Posts Commentary on Met Gala 

OK Justin Bieber posted my absolute favorite Instagram of the day yesterday -- he wrote "Hey world. That glamorous lifestyle you see portrayed by famous people on Instagram? Don't be fooled thinking their life is better than yours. I can promise you it's not!" Preach. 

 

How Melissa McCarthy Deals with Online Trolls 

Melissa McCarthy is talking about how she deals with online trolls, and it's pretty awesome. She said she just roots for them to find someone to talk to, or someone who will bring them joy and make them laugh -- because happy people don't go around crapping on people. She said that sitting in her living room crying about the mean things people say is never going to change anything. 

 

Cardi B Talks About Post Met Gala Beatdown

Yesterday I told you that Cardi B's team is being accused of beating up a fan after the Met Gala. Cardi took to Twitter (but then later deleted her comments) to say "I take a lot of pics with fans. Some people are not fans & sometimes I don't want no pics and I simply don't want people too close cause of my pregnancy. I don't know what are people's intentions so I be careful. Why can't people respect that?"
