New Dunkin’… Silento charged with assault… ‘Mulan’ for no extra cost… Beyoncé’s secret shoot… and Britney Spears nominates trust company

Listen to “Showbiz- Sept 3, 2020” on Spreaker.


When my daughter came to me out of the blue asking for Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, the first thing I asked her was, “Which TikTok star is drinking Dunkin’ Donuts coffee?” She denied this was the case when, in fact, it was. Now I have proof! After sending pre-teen and teenage girls to them in droves, Dunkin’ Donuts has rewarded Charli D’Amelio by adding her favorite order to their menu — the Charli. It’s made with Dunkin’ cold brew, whole milk, and three pumps of caramel swirl. And starting next week, if you order one, you’re entered into a contest to meet her virtually. Charli was really smart about how she set this whole thing up. Back in December she said she’d “really like a Dunkin’ brand deal” because she drank up to 3 of them every day. And then in January, she revealed her favorite order, which suddenly had my daughter begging for coffee.

Remember Silento? Back in 2015 he gave us the gift of “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” but then what? Well, Silento is finally back in the headlines. He was arrested last weekend after allegedly walking to a house holding a hatchet and saying he was looking for his girlfriend! TMZ reports that some people in the house were able to wrestle Silento to the ground and take the hatchet away while someone screamed for help. Reportedly, one of Silento’s friends showed up and said, “Dude, you’re in the wrong house!” and they took off. Police were able to track him down, and Silento has been in jail ever since because he hasn’t been able to post that $250K bond.

Disney finally gave up the idea of doing a theater release, and starting tomorrow, Disney Plus subscribers will be able to stream “Mulan” for $29.99. This will give you access to the movie through Nov. 2. At that point, Disney Plus will pull “Mulan” for a breather, bringing it back on Dec. 4 at no extra cost to subscribers.

Beyoncé is up to something! Page Six is reporting that she shut down an entire TV studio in the Hamptons to record some mystery project. She and her team had complete control of the facility for four days last week. Beyoncé and Jay-Z bought a $26M mansion in the Hamptons three years ago, and they’ve been staying there most of the summer. Last week, Bey and Jay were seen yachting with Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey.

The people behind the #FreeBritney movement are convinced Britney Spears is being held against her will, a prisoner of a conservatorship for the past 12 years. But according to court documents filed by her attorneys this week, she’s cool with being under a conservatorship. She just wants to make some revisions. The court documents say, “This is a voluntary conservatorship. Conservatee wishes to exercise her right to nominate a conservator of the estate…” Britney’s dad has pretty much controlled everything for the past 12 years, but Britney is asking the court to appoint Bessemer Trust Company to serve as conservator of her estate, giving them control of her finances and music career, as well as power of attorney for any medical or health decisions. Another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 10.
