Weekend box office news… Never-before-heard Prince music… Anton Yelchin’s freak accident… Iggy Azalea called off her engagement… and Celebrities react to Cleveland Cavaliers winning NBA Championship
“Finding Dory” officially had the highest-grossing animated film debut in history. The movie earned $136.2 million in its first weekend, bumping the previous record holder, “Shrek the Third” and its measly $121.6 million debut in 2007, down to second. The sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo” is about Dory’s journey to find her parents.
Charles Koppelman signed Prince when he was the head guy at EMI. And now Prince’s longtime lawyer and manager has appointed him to handle the release of never-before-heard Prince music. Koppelman told Billboard that there are vaults FULL of music. He said, “Prince was an icon on the level of The Beatles and Michael Jackson, and his legacy should be honored.” He said there could even be a Broadway musical featuring Prince’s hits or a Cirque du Soleil show!
Anton Yelchin was an actor who is probably most recognized for playing “Chekov” in the “Star Trek” movie. His friends became concerned when he didn’t meet them Saturday night for a rehearsal, so they went to his home in the San Fernando Valley around 1am and found him pinned between his car and a mailbox pillar attached to his home’s security gate. When police arrived the car was in neutral with the engine running. It’s not clear why Anton got out of the car, but authorities do believe this was just a freak accident. Anton was only 27.
Iggy Azalea says she just couldn’t get past the cheating and she’s called off her engagement to Nick “Swaggy P” Young. She made the announcement on Instagram yesterday, saying:
Swaggy P responded with his own Tweet: “Single.” Iggy and Nick got engaged exactly one year ago. In March, Nick’s Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell posted a video where Nick’s talking about cheating on his fiancee. Iggy tried to forgive and move on, but apparently she just couldn’t do it.
The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriers, 93-89, in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. This is the first time ever the Cavs have won the NBA title and OF COURSE we want to know what celebrities think about that. Carrie Underwood tweeted, “Great game! Even I watched. Well…parts of it, anyway. Ok, ok…just the last 3 minutes. Sheesh! Pumped for Cleveland, though! #nbafinals.” Josh Gad tweeted, “@KingJames is now going to own most of the continental United States after the ten endorsements he didn’t already have.” Justin Timberlake tweeted, “Lebron did it. Everybody be quiet. Goodnight.”
