Lil Uzi’s $24M face diamond… Lamar Odom set to fight Aaron Carter… Netflix has 42 nominations… Police sent to check on Marilyn Manson… and Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez dine out amid Madison LeCroy rumorsListen to “Showbiz – Feb 4, 2021” on Spreaker.
We’ve gotten kinda used to face tattoos, but THIS??? Rapper Lil Uzi Vert just got a diamond pierced to his forehead. He posted a video of it on his Instagram and replied to fans saying it is a natural pink diamond that is 10 or 11 carats, and he claims it’s worth $24M. Uzi says it took him 4 years to pay for it and it is worth more than all of his cars and house.When someone asked Uzi why he didn’t just put the stone on a ring, he said, “If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you . . . And yes I do have insurance.” Why did he do it? We’re not sure. Apparently, he’s known for being into anime, aliens and the Heaven’s Gate cult. Some people are saying he looks like Vision from Marvel who has a diamond in his forehead.
This story makes me sad. Lamar Odom and Aaron Carter are going to fight each other in a celebrity boxing match. It will be a 3-round exhibition at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 12. Aaron is 33 and 6’1”; Lamar is 41 and 6’10”. Aaron told TMZ, “This is a crazy match up. It’s like David and Goliath! I’m really looking forward to this fight.” Aaron thinks he might have a bit of an advantage because he “grew up street fighting.”
The Golden Globe nominations were announced yesterday and we touched on a few yesterday, but there are seriously too many to get into. But here are a few tidbits from yesterday’s announcement. The Netflix movie “Mank” and the Netflix series “The Crown” came out on top with six Golden Globe nominations each. Netflix earned the most with a record-breaking 42, up from its previous record of 34 last year. As far as the big snubs, Spike Lee’s movie “Da 5 Bloods” was expected to be a top contender, but it got zero nominations. “What We Do in the Shadows” landed eight Emmy nominations, but it got zero Golden Globe noms. Other shutouts include Zendaya and John David Washington for “Malcolm and Marie.” Meryl Streep also got shut out for “The Prom.” Nothing for George Clooney’s “The Midnight Sky.” And “Tenet” only got one nomination, and that was for Best Original Score. And even thought it’s the most successful original series in Netflix history, “Bridgerton” was completely shut out.
Earlier this week, Evan Rachel Wood called out Marylin Manson for years of abuse. Yesterday, his ex-wife Dita Von Teese tweeted a statement, “Please know that the details made public do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together as a couple. Had they, I would have not married him in December 2005. I left 12 months later due to infidelity and drug abuse.” Yesterday, police in squad cars and helicopters showed up at Marilyn’s house in LA. A friend called 911 after not being able to reach Marilyn for several hours, but his rep assured officers that Marilyn was fine. Meantime, others are speaking out about Marilyn’s violence towards women, including a stylist named Love Bailey, who’s actually been accusing Marilyn of abuse for years. She released an IG video describing what she saw during a 2011 photoshoot. And Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit backs up what all of Marilyn’s accusers are describing, saying they are absolutely telling the truth.
“Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy is finally speaking out about rumors of an alleged relationship with Alex Rodriguez. During the reunion show on Bravo, one of Madison’s cast members accused her of having an affair with a famous, married, former baseball player. The name was bleeped out, but Madison confirmed it was A-Rod. Madison claims that Alex slid into her DMs and they ended up talking over the phone, but it was all innocent. Madison says rumors that she flew to Miami to meet Alex are NOT true. In fact, she said they’ve never met in person and therefore nothing physical ever happened. Madison said her mistake was telling the wrong person, who told someone else and it became like this big game of telephone. No comment from JLo or A-Rod, but they definitely made their statement when they went out to lunch together in South Florida yesterday.
