The Falcon & The Winter Soldier most watched on Disney+… Phoebe Dynevor reportedly has a new suitor… Demi Lovato & Ariana Grande’s collaboration… Jessica Simpson is getting candid… and Britney Spears is reportedly considering a tell-all

Listen to “Showbiz – Mar 23, 2021” on Spreaker.


Marvel’s “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” debuted on Disney+ this past Friday and, as expected, it was a huge hit. Disney said the premiere episode was “the most watched series premiere ever on Disney+ during its opening weekend…and the most watched title overall…” It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the premieres for “WandaVision” and the second season of “The Mandalorian” are the other highest-ranking debuts on Disney+. “Loki” is the next Marvel show to be released on Disney+ this June. Marvel’s other Disney+ show “Hawkeye” — which stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld — doesn’t premiere until later this year and there’s already a spinoff in the works. It would focus on Echo — a deaf Native American whose superpower is that she can copy another person’s movements or fighting style.

Pete Davidson thought his world was over when Ariana Grande dumped him. But he has rebounded quite nicely, first with the much older and very British Kate Beckinsale, followed by “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” actress Margaret Qualley, and then Kaia GerberCindy Crawford’s 19-year-old lookalike daughter. Now Pete is rumored to be “spending a lot of time” with Phoebe Dynevor (Den-uh-vor), who plays Daphne on “Bridgerton.” She reportedly visited him in NYC and he flew over to England to spend time with her. But hey! If that doesn’t work out, Olivia Rodrigo confessed that 27-year-old Pete is her biggest celebrity crush and she’s now a barely legal 18.

Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande have been teasing a new collab for a few weeks. Yesterday, they revealed the title of their new song is “Met Him Last Night.” Demi even shared a super short teaser. The song will be on Demi’s new album “Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over” out next Friday. Saweetie and Noah Cyrus will also be on Demi’s album. Part one of Demi’s highly anticipated YouTube documentary is out this afternoon.

We thought Jessica Simpson told it all in her memoir Open Book, but apparently, she’s got more to tell! Jessica is rereleasing her book with some new stories from her past, including the infamous mom jeans controversy and how her heart broke when she found out her ex-husband Nick Lachey moved on with Vanessa Minnillo, now Lachey, just months after their split. She wrote in her diary at the time, “So, Nick, you’re with another already? Seems that you forgot the love you spoke to me. I’m saddened beyond belief. Alone in the dark, with no one to call my own.”

After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with Oprah, a lot of Britney Spears’ fans were calling on her to do the same. Then the rumor started that Britney was interested in doing just that! But a source close to Britney told “Us Weekly,” “The report about Britney considering a tell-all is greatly exaggerated and essentially giving false hope to the fans who tweeted calls for it after the Harry and Meghan interview. Britney would like to tell her story and has always wanted to write a memoir, but the conservatorship makes that difficult and it’s not something on her immediate radar, anyway.” But! The source added, “She wants to speak and could do so on social media with the assistance of (boyfriend Sam Asghari) on his platforms if it got to be this emergency situation for her. She doesn’t want to be filtered.”
