Until this week, Imagine Dragons’ song “Radioactive” held the record for spending the most time on the Billboard Hot 100. The Billboard Hot 100 is the industry standard that ranks all songs in all genres. “Radioactive” spent 87 weeks on the charts from 2012-2014. We have a new winner. “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd now holds the record for longest charting song with 88 weeks. It was debuted at #11 in December 2019. It currently ranks at #18. The song has rewritten the records for the most time spent in the Hot 100’s top five (43 weeks), top 10 (57 weeks), top 20 (79 weeks) and top 40 (84 weeks).

Selma Blair says she experienced symptoms years before she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2018. But now, Selma says she is in remission after undergoing a stem cell transplant about a year ago. Nobody knows the cause of MS, but according to the Mayo Clinic, it’s an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath that covers nerve fibers. It can cause vision loss, pain, fatigue and impaired coordination. While Selma is in remission, she said she’s still cognitively changed, which has been the harder part. Selma open ups about her MS journey in the documentary “Introducing, Selma Blair” which hits theaters Oct. 15 and begins streaming on Discovery+ on October 21.

There’s a rumor going around that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are getting along! Sources say the two of them are in talks to work together on a new Netflix documentary. Meghan and Harry have signed a huge deal with Netflix to create all this original content. First up is a documentary focused on Harry’s Invictus Games, which gives sick and injured military personnel and veterans the chance to compete in sports. They’re also producing an animated series about the adventures of a 12-year-old girl that is tentatively titled “Pearl.” But another idea they have — allegedly — is to make a documentary focusing on all of their sister-in-law Kate’s charity work. A source says that Kate was very flattered about the idea and that it’s led to Meghan and Kate talking more and getting along really well. A few months ago, Meghan told Oprah that the media is to blame for creating this fake feud between the two of them.
If you don’t know, Scarlett Johansson is currently suing Disney for breach of contract claiming she lost tens of millions of dollars when they decided to release “Black Widow” in theaters and on Disney+. Emma Stone faced a similar situation because that’s exactly how Disney released “Cruella.” While Disney will no longer work with Scarlett, things are great between them and Emma, who just signed on for “Cruella 2.” However, a source says Emma did use Scarlett’s lawsuit to negotiate her new deal. The source said Emma made Disney “acknowledge for the first time that it should have negotiated a ‘buyout’ of her box office bonuses on the first Cruella, like Warner Bros. did for its 2021 movies.” In their negotiations, Emma reportedly got a “make good” payment totaling 8 figures for Cruella’s hybrid release, and will get another 8 figure payment for “Cruella 2.”
Instead of suing Disney, Emma Stone negotiated a better deal for #Cruella2, and Scarlett Johansson’s ongoing battle with the studio aided her. https://t.co/D2eR8e1PG9 pic.twitter.com/Dhvf3mWW0a— Screen Rant (@screenrant) August 16, 2021
Yesterday, Britney Spears posted another topless pic on Instagram. She’s wearing red boots, white bikini bottoms, and she’s cupping her breasts while holding a red rose. She wrote a looooooong caption to go with it, and here goes! “No guys … I didn’t get a boob job in just a week … nor am I pregnant … I have boobs in these pics cause I devoured food 😋 !!!! Before I show you more pics of my body … I want you to understand my thoughts on exposing my skin !!!! In my opinion it’s quite twisted the immediate response of when any woman is hot and they want to shed a layer … no … I’m not talking in a strip club or a performance … just on a practical scale of being in your car and realizing you’re wearing a stupid long sleeve shirt in the summer !!!! The immediate reaction to any woman who does this after shedding a layer is DAMN I FEEL BETTER … therefore you think you look better !!! I’ve had a billion shows where I’ve done that and to my horror uhhh we’ll … sometimes I didn’t look so great … TOO MANY TIMES and it’s embarrassing as f*** but in my imagination it felt great !!!! I mean I don’t want anybody to see the big dimple on my a** but I feel like performing made me too self conscious about my body and that’s not attractive ….. anyways I bet you’re wondering why I’d expose my body NOW … well it’s because I was born into this world naked and I honestly feel like the weight of the would has been on my shoulders and it’s made me view myself that way !!!! I wanted to see myself in a lighter way … naked … like the way I was born and to me looking back at my pictures when I shoot it’s insane the psychology in seeing myself in my purest form gives evidence that pain … hurt … tears … and heavy burdens aren’t who I am. I am a woman …. a beautiful … sensitive woman who needs to look at myself in my purest form !!! No … I’m not going to do topless pics for the rest of my life cause that would get boring but it sure as hell helps when you need to be enlightened 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ !!!! And I will admit the FREE BRITNEY comments after I took my shirt off were actually really f***ing funny !!! The Free Britney campaign started with all your amazing pink Free Britney shirts 👚 3 years ago !!! There’s a way deeper meaning to the movement than you can ever imagine … my fans have always been so damn amazing and I love you all 🌹🌹🌹 !!!! Psss this was shot on holy Sunday yesterday ✨ !!!!
