We’ll be hearing a lot from Owen Wilson for the next couple weeks because he’s busy promoting his new Bob Ross-inspired movie “Paint,” which comes out April 7. He was a guest on “The Late Late Show” and told a great story about losing his lifetime all-access pass to Rolling Stones concerts. Who knew lifetime all-access passes even existed??? Owen explained that he was friends with someone who was really good friends with Mick Jagger. Because of that connection, they got these special laminated all-access passes that would allow him to attend any Rolling Stones concert in the world for the rest of his life. He got it right before the Stones played in Argentina. Owen said, “That night at the concert, I’m kind of wandering around and testing it out — like, ‘I’m going to walk over here and see if anybody stops me.’ And no one would stop me any place. I ended up right at this place where I could look over and see Mick Jagger on the stage, and right there and then, all of a sudden, he bolts during ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ and comes running down. It turns out, where I was, was kind of part of the stage a little bit, so I just sort of froze and tried to be inconspicuous, and he kinda came down and left, and then someone came running over, (shouting,) ‘Get out of here! Move! You’re not supposed to be here!’ And I (said), ‘I didn’t know! I’m so sorry!'” Owen said that haunted him for the rest of the night. But the next morning he got a call from Mick’s security team, telling him they were coming over to pick up the laminate. So in less than 24 hours, Owen lost his lifetime all-access backstage pass…

It’s been 3 months since Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the feet. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on April 10. He’s facing up to 22 years and could be deported back to Canada. But Tory is trying to avoid that, so he’s filed an appeal. His lawyer believes the conviction should be thrown out because “irrelevant evidence” was presented in the trial. The lawyer said prosecutors showed a photo of a shirtless Tory holding a gun to his chest and then threatened to present some of Tory’s lyrics to the jury in an effort to show his “fondness for weapons.” Tory’s attorney also believes it was wrong for the jury to hear the interview prosecutors had with Megan’s former best friend, who was in the car the night of the shooting, because she later recanted most of what she said.

It looks like Jonah Hill isn’t just engaged, he’s going to be a dad! His girlfriend Olivia Millar is sporting a noticeable baby bump AND what looks like an engagement ring. Also believed to be engaged is Lana Del Ray. She and music manager Evan Winiker reportedly have been dating quietly for a few months, but she was wearing a huge diamond on THAT finger on a recent red carpet.

We’re heading into the home stretch of “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10, so they haven’t gotten to the part where Tom Sandoval is caught cheating on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss. At this point, everyone’s starting to think there’s something going on between Tom Schwartz and Raquel. In real time, Raquel and Scheana Shay were supposed to be in an LA courtroom together, where Raquel was seeking a permanent restraining order against Scheana. She accused her of punching in the face, something Scheana denies. But Raquel recently said she changed her mind and that after the temporary restraining order expired, she wasn’t going any further with it. So she just didn’t show up in court yesterday. Scheana, however, DID show up, and her lawyer told Page Six, “When Rachel (Raquel’s real name) realized that she would lose in court and that she couldn’t just drop it, she decided to not show up at all.” And even though Raquel’s rep said Scheana and her legal team were notified at the reunion taping that Raquel was dropping the restraining order, Scheana’s lawyer said that piece of paper had “no legal meaning” and the case was still on the court calendar, which is why Scheana showed up. The end result — the restraining order is dropped.

Charlie Puth is getting into trouble online after an old clip from 2018 started making the rounds on social media. Charlie explained that his 2017 song “Attention” was based on his relationship with Selena Gomez. In 2016, the two of them teamed up for “We Don’t Talk Anymore” and there was a little chemistry there. Selena had just broken up with Justin Bieber, who immediately started dating Hailey Bieber. Charlie said he and Selena had a “very short-lived” but “very impactful” relationship, and when it ended, it really messed him up mentally. But then he grossly described how Selena basically led him on and never put out. So when that interview resurfaced on social media, Charlie tweeted and deleted, “Attention is about what you think it’s about.” He is getting skewered. One person posted, “So it’s about a girl not giving you her body and taking things slow and you getting increasingly frustrated about it.” Another posted, “Charlie Puth is the perfect example of how most men act when a woman denies them access to her body. The nerve to say ‘she wasn’t gonna give me what I wanted’ and then going on to say that to you that meant she was manipulating you is sick. 8 years later, the ego is still bruised.”
