Gospel singer Kim Burrell was scheduled to perform on “Ellen” this week until someone posted a video of one of her sermons at the Love & Liberty Fellowship church in Houston in which she said homosexuals are “perverted in spirit.” The backlash was severe. Kim went on Facebook Live, not to apologize but to explain. She said she believes her enemies posted a convenient portion of her sermon to make her look as bad as possible, but she said, “I love you and God loves you but God hates the sin in you and me.” Ellen has since tweeted, “For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.”
Are you ready for a movie about Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan and that whole crow bar to the shin incident? Well, you will be when you find out Margot Robbie is playing Tonya Harding in the movie, “I, Tonya”!! First of all, congratulations to Margot, who married her longtime boyfriend Tom Ackerley on December 19th. And second, congratulations to Margot for landing this sweet acting gig! She’s actually producing the movie so the part was hers for the taking. But she’s been practicing her ice-skating moves as she prepares for what will surely be the role of a lifetime. Sebastian Stan from “Captain America: Civil War” is playing Tonya’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly. We don’t know yet who’s playing Nancy Kerrigan. But the movie will be out in 2018.
Adele is notoriously private and promised that after this tour she was going away to make another baby with her longtime boyfriend Simon Konecki. But she may have actually married the father of her now 4-year-old son, Angelo. Both Adele and Simon have been spotted wearing gold bands on their ring fingers, but nobody is commenting.

Janet Jackson has had her baby! She and husband Wissam Al Mana have named their son Eissa Al Mana. The name reportedly means “salvation” in Hebrew and “Jesus” in Arabic. The official statement says “Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
