2.Mumford and Sons announce surprise NYC show…and break the internet…
In a surprise announcement made just this morning, folked-up group, Mumford and Sons, announced a last-minute show at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge, which by the way, happens to take place tonight. But, if you want tickets, you’re out of luck because when they went on sale at 9 A.M., they immediately sold out, which in turn led the venue’s website to crash. Fans should get excited to hear new tracks from their upcoming ‘Wilder Mind,’ record which is set to hit headphones everywhere on May 4th.
3.Fox News’ Chris Wallace apologizes to Ms. Kelly Clarkson after harsh comments…
Fox news host Chris Wallace has manned up after making “fat-shaming” comments towards Kelly Clarkson over the weekend. Wallace has taken a huge shade throwing his way after he appeared on ‘The Mike Gallagher Show,’ joining in on the discussion of Clarkon’s post baby body weight. After Wallace made some playful remarks towards Gallagher’s own weight, the convo quickly turned into a diss session towards Kelly when Gallagher stated, “Don’t fat shame me. You do a lot of fat shaming. That’s the phrase now, ‘fat shaming.’ Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up.” It was then that Wallace added, “She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while.” We all know that Ms. Clarkson is well received by all, so you can imagine the backlash that Mr Wallace faced, which led him to his apology. In an exclusive statement to People magazine, Wallace stated, “I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment,” adding that he admires her “remarkable talent” and also how that “should have been the focus of any discussion of her.” Why no response has been sent out by Kelly’s camp, let’s just hope that he learned a valuable lesson here…you don’t mess with the first ‘American Idol’ winner….ever…
