Libby Awards applauded Selena Gomez… Carrie Underwood’s two cows… Bad Bunny lands major movie role… The Masked Singer season finale… and 5 staffers quit after Tom Cruise launches another rant

Listen to “Showbiz – Dec 17, 2020” on Spreaker.


Celebrities including Selena Gomez and Lizzo were recognized for their animal-loving ways at PETA’s 15th annual Libby Awards. The Libbys are awarded to celebrities, brands and companies for their commitment to animals. Selena won Favorite Vegan Makeup Line for her Rare Beauty brand. Lizzo won Favorite Vegan Cooking Videos after sharing what she made for her 100% plant-based Thanksgiving, which included green chile enchiladas with jackfruit and jackfruit margaritas. Madelaine Petsch watched “Tiger King” like the rest of us, but she posted on her IG Story that “these animals belong in the wild they aren’t meant to be domesticated and put in cages.” That earned her the Libby for Favorite Post for Animals. And “Emily in Paris” star Lily Collins received the Most Pawsitive Quarantine Story award for adopting her puppy Redford from a shelter during the pandemic.

Celebrities are just like us…..sometimes. At Christmas, they want to surprise each other with thoughtful, creative gifts. Carrie Underwood’s husband surprised her with two COWS. She said, “They’re my favorite animal. I love them. They make me so happy. I don’t want them for any purpose, just to love them.” And that Joe Jonas sure does have a sense of humor, doesn’t he? Sophie Turner called him “hubbs of the year” after he gave her an early Christmas present — a Hannah Montana t-shirt covered with pictures of Miley Cyrus that range from sweet and innocent to half-naked. I wonder if Priyanka got the same gift? Her husband Nick Jonas used to date Miley back in the day…..

Brad Pitt is starring in an upcoming action thriller called “Bullet Train,” which is based on a popular Japanese novel called Maria Beetle. The movie will follow “a group of assassins with conflicting motives aboard a train in Tokyo.” We heard previously that Lady Gaga would be starring alongside Brad, but it looks like she’ll have a small, supporting role. But now we’ve learned that rapper Bad Bunny has signed on for the film! Will he be credited as Bad Bunny or Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio?

SPOILER ALERT!!! The big finale for Season 4 of “The Masked Singer” was last night. The final three were Crocodile, Mushroom and Sun. And that’s the order the unmasked the singers. Third place was Crocodile, who was revealed as Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. Mushroom was Aloe Blacc. And the winner of the Golden Mask? The Sun was LeAnn Freaking Rimes.

We all heard Tom Cruise going OFF on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” because he saw two crew members standing too close together, breaking the set’s strict Covid policies. But apparently, that wasn’t all! A source told “The Sun” Tom went off again, and it was so bad that 5 crew members quit. The source said, “The first outburst was big but things haven’t calmed since. Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked….But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him. In the end, he’s the one who carries the can.”
