Latest star to join DWTS… Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’… Lady Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer defends her… Britney Spears will not be charged… and Kanye West appears to admit to cheating on Kim KardashianListen to “Showbiz – Sep 2, 2021” on Spreaker.
Season 30 of “Dancing With the Stars” kicks off Sept. 20 and the full cast will be announced on “Good Morning America” on Sept. 8. We’ve already had a couple of confirmed celebrity dancers, but a few more names have been leaked. Olympic gymnast Sunisa Lee and JoJo Siwa were the first official announcements. A gossip site called Dance Dish With KB claims that JoJo’s professional dance partner will be Jenna Johnson, who won the Season 26 mirrorball trophy with Adam Rippon. Kenya Moore from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is said to be competing, along with Amanda Kloots, who we really got to know as her husband Nick Cordero fought for his life but died from coronavirus complications in July 2020. She recently became a co-host of “The Talk.” Fans will probably give her a lot of backlash because she was a professional dancer on Broadway. And a couple gossip sites are saying that Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli will be dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy. And there are also rumors that LeAnn Rimes and former Bachelor Matt James will compete.
Drake will drop his new album “Certified Lover Boy” tomorrow. He’s been posting lyrics to some of the songs on billboards in Toronto and he’s revealed the featured artists on his album by posting their names on billboards in each of their home states. One said, “Hey Atlanta Slime, Pluto, Savage and Baby are on CLB.” Another said, “Hey California, Giveon and Ty Dolla are on CLB.” In NYC, the billboard said, “Hey New York The GOAT is on CLB.” By that, Drake means Jay-Z. Also, Lil Nas X has released the track list for his debut album “Montero,” which is out September 17th. Jack Harlow, Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion, and Miley Cyrus are all featured on his album.
Lady Gaga’s former dog walker, Ryan Fischer, is speaking out after Lady Gaga was accused of “abandoning” him as he recovered from being shot by dognappers who stole her dogs in February. Ryan left LA to go “find himself” on a cross-country RV trip, but ended up broke down and broke. He created a GoFundMe to raise $40K recently, saying he felt “abandoned and unsupported,” which some believed was a direct jab at Lady Gaga. But in a new interview with “Rolling Stone,” Ryan said, “Everyone thought that I was setting a blame on someone, when it was all love.” He said Gaga was there for him throughout his recovery, covering all his medical bills and letting him stay at her place after reporters and paparazzi started camping outside his home. She even flew a trauma therapist out to work with Ryan for multiple three-day stints. And while Ryan isn’t blaming Gaga, his assistant Elisha — yes, ASSISTANT! Elisha apparently handles Ryan’s finances — lays all the blame at Gaga’s feet. She said Gaga and her team “were supportive from afar — there were a lot of words of assurance, like: ‘Oh yeah, don’t worry about anything, we’re going to take complete care of you….Nobody made a point to come see him or talk to him or make contact with him. Ryan was a lot more than just an employee for them. They were friends — close friends — for years.” Elisha said she submitted an invoice to Gaga, since she and Ryan expected her to give him six more months of financial support following the shooting. Instead, Elisha said she was “surprised to receive a text from a member of Gaga’s team asking what it was for. It quickly became clear that Gaga’s team only expected to support Ryan until she returned from Italy around three months after the shooting.”
Britney gets a break! Two weeks ago, one of Britney Spears’ housekeepers accused her of batter after they got into a fight over Britney’s dogs. The housekeeper and the dog sitter apparently agreed that Britney’s dogs were being neglected, so the dog sitter took the dogs to the vet and then decided to keep them while they got better. Britney found out the housekeeper used her cell phone to take photos of the dogs and sent them to her dad. That let to an argument where the housekeeper claims Britney hit her on the arm, causing her to drop her phone. She filed an assault report with the Sheriff’s department. It turns out Britney won’t be charged with anything. The DA’s office said there was “insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone.”
Even though they’re going through a divorce, Kim Kardashian West was still showing support for Kanye by posting that she was listening to his song “Hurricane” on her phone. However, she was blasted after people noticed she had the volume turned ALL the way down! Maybe Kim was actually trying to send us a message because in the lyrics of “Hurricane,” Kanye raps about cheating on Kim during their marriage! He says, “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’.” An insider says, “The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown.” In “Hurricane,” Kanye also talks about his struggles with alcohol, rapping, “Genius gone clueless, it’s a whole lot to risk / Alcohol anonymous, who’s the busiest loser?”
