Listen to “Showbiz – Oct 23, 2020” on Spreaker.


Elton John is getting his own Barbie! The doll comes in a bedazzled collectable box with a doll stand. She’s wearing a rainbow-bright bomber jacket, flared jeans with an “E” on one leg and a “J” on the other, rainbow platform heels, big rose-colored glasses and a bowler. The Elton Barbie is being released to coincide with the 45th anniversary of Elton’s record -breaking concert at Dodgers Stadium. At the time, it was the largest single-artist concert in history. The Elton Barbie will be available at Walmart for $50.

There’s a certain scene in “Borat 2” that puts Rudy Giuliani in a compromising position, but he insists nothing untoward was going on . He released a statement saying, “The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment. At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.” Sacha as Borat released a statement to defend “America’s mayor Rudolph Giuliani.” He said, “What was an innocent sexy-time encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter have been turned into something disgusting by fake news media. I warn you: anyone else try this, and Rudolph will not hesitate to reach into his legal briefs and whip out his supenis.” “Borat 2” is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

A new scandal has hit Bachelor Nation that is being called #PromGate on social media. On this week’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” Clare said she was never asked to go to prom. She said “Nobody even knew who I was in high school. I was just invisible, I think…” But one woman said, “Hold up, Clare!” She posted a photo of her husband and Clare from back in high school all dressed up for a dance. She captioned it, “My husband took @clarecrawley to senior prom, @clarecrawley you went to prom.” Clare responded, “LOL actually not. You do know there is more dances in high school that are NOT Prom? Turns out it’s just someone digging up old photos. (why she keeps her husbands old dance pics I’m not sure). I went to a new school senior year and in fact DID NOT go to prom just like I said.” The woman later updated her post, saying, “Clare did not go to prom with my husband it was another dance and I apologize for my error.” She then deleted the post and made her account private.

Hollywood Life is reporting that even though they appear “off” in public, in private, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are definitely “on.” One source said, “Kylie and Travis act very much still together privately, but when in public, they act like they’re not tied together. They’ve clearly been trying to keep their relationship status under wraps…When they’re out though Kylie is very affectionate with Travis and he lights up when she does so.” Meantime, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are very much reconciled. They were snuggled up at Kim Kardashian’s surprise 40th birthday party.

Yesterday, Miley Cyrus announced she will release her seventh album soon. It will be called “Plastic Hearts” and it will be out on Nov. 27th. On Instagram she said “…I began this album over 2 years ago. I had it all figured out. Not just the [music] but my whole [freaking] life. But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the music’s relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes. Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs…If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it ‘The Beginning’ which usually when something is over we call it ‘The End’. But it was far from that.
