“Toy Story 4” trailer… Jaden Smith came out… John Mayer is sober thanks to Drake… Lady Gaga was forced to evacuate her home… and Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away at 95
Disney released the trailer for “Toy Story 4” yesterday and it’s hard to tell who’s more excited — our kids or us parents! Our old favorites are back — Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Rex the Dinosaur, Hamm the Piggy Bank, Slinky the Dog…..but there’s a new character in the mix, and his name is Forky! Forky is basically the end result of a kid’s craft project using a spork, some pipe cleaners and glue. And Forky realizes quite quickly that he’s not a toy and yells, “I don’t belong here!” “Toy Story 4” opens June 18, 2019 — 24 years after the original!

Jaden Smith was performing at Tyler the Creator’s sixth annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival in LA Sunday — they’ve had six of these things??? — and people are wondering if Jaden came out or if he was just kidding. In an effusive, expletive-filled profession of love, Jaden told the audience, “I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world, and I love him so (BLANKING) much. And I want to tell you guys something. Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my (BLANKETY-BLANKING) boyfriend and he’s been my (BLANKETY-BLANKING) boyfriend my whole (BLANKING) life. Tyler the Creator is my (BLANKING) boyfriend. It’s true!” Someone filming this on a cell phone panned over to Tyler, who’s shaking his head no and laughing. But Jaden continued! “Tyler the Creator is my (BLANKING) boyfriend. Okay? If you take anything away from this (BLANKING) show, that’s what you need to take away.” Later on Twitter, Jaden wrote, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.” So what’s up? Tyler has alluded to the fact that he’s gay a few years ago. In 2015, he tweeted, “I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA.” And on his 2017 album “Flower Boy, “ Tyler rapped on “I Ain’t Got Time!” — “Next line will have ’em like ‘whoa’ / I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.” After Jaden’s onstage confession, one twitter user commented that he wouldn’t believe it until Jaden talked about it with his mom Jada Pinkett Smith on her Facebook Watch show, “Red Table Talk.”

John Mayer says he hasn’t had a drink in two years because of what happened at Drake’s 30th birthday. John says he woke up on the sixth day of his hangover, looked out the window and had a nice long conversation with himself. John decided he wanted to live his life to its full potential and made the decision to stop drinking.

Lady Gaga was forced to evacuate her home in Malibu. She decided to pay a visit to fellow evacuees at a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School. TMZ says she told the crowd, “I know we do not know each other, but I love you. This is an emergency, but you are not alone. And we have each other.” She took photos, handed out gift cards, and even sang to an elderly woman. Gaga also encouraged everyone to pay attention to their mental health and talk to the counselors on site. Meantime, Kim and Kanye are being thanked by their neighbors for saving all of their homes. The Wests hired a private team of firefighters to dig trenches that kept the flames from reaching their homes.

The man whose imagination gave us the Marvel Universe has passed away. Stan Lee was 95. A ton of celebrities who owe a lot of their fame and fortune to this man went on social media to show their respect. Chris Hemsworth/Thor, Tom Holland/Spider-Man, Ryan Reynolds/Deadpool, Chris Evans/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr./Iron Man, Hugh Jackman/Wolverine….and that’s just to name a few! Seth Rogen — who played the Green Hornet — kept his tribute short and sweet. He tweeted, “Thank you Stan Lee for making people who feel different realize they are special.”
Stan Lee built a sense of community between comics fans and creators. He engaged readers through his column, Stan's Soapbox. And he became as recognizable as his superheroes through his many cameos on TV and in movies.
Lee died Monday at 95. https://t.co/IAGpxLIyI6
