Jonah Hill’s brother says ‘I Do’ to Clint Eastwood’s daughter… ‘Catching Fire’ tops box office with $161.1 million opening weekend… “GQ” shares the 25 Least Influential People of 2013… Beyoncé banned from pyramids?… and Pitbull hosts the American Music Awards
So remember that time you were in Vegas and you got drunk and stumbled into a wedding chapel where you married somebody you barely knew in front of an Elvis impersonator? Yeah…Apparently, that was what happened to Clint Eastwood’s daughter, Francesca, and Jonah Hill’s brother, Jordan Feldstein, who’s the music manager for Maroon 5 and Sarah Bareilles. Once the buzz wore off and they recovered from their hangovers, Francesca realized she’d made a terrible mistake. She’s having the marriage annulled.
The “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was number one at the box office this weekend. Duh. With $161.1 million in ticket sales, the sequel narrowly beat the opening numbers of the original, and it also set a record for a November opening. However, it wasn’t the biggest opening of the year. That honor still belongs to “Iron Man 3,” which opened with $174.1 million back in May. And “Catching Fire” made the fourth largest debut in box office history, bumping “The Dark Knight Rises” down to fifth. Coming in first would be “The Avengers” which opened with $207.4 million in ticket sales back in May of 2012; followed by “Iron Man 3;” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” with $169.2 million in July of 2011.
“GQ” is out with its list of the LEAST influential celebrities of 2013. Coming in first is Dennis Rodman, who has appointed himself as the peacemaker between the US and North Korea by becoming BFFs with Kim Jong Un. In fact, Dennis is heading back to North Korea late next month for an exhibition basketball tour. Coming in second on GQ’s Least Influential list is Paula Deen, followed by former US Rep. Anthony Weiner, Justin Bieber and the Pope! You can go to GQ.com for the complete list, but other celebrities deemed least influential include Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Tim Tebow, Ryan Reynolds, and Will Smith and his ENTIRE family!
How DARE Beyonce tick off the Egyptian Indiana Jones?! She was supposed to tour the ancient pyramids in Egypt with this archeologist who’s been deemed the Egyptian Indiana Jones, but it turned ugly so quickly that he canceled the tour! Zahi Hawass said, “Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends, but THIS lady….” He said she showed up very late for the tour and he demanded an apology, but she just stood there in silence and refused to give him one. And when Zahi’s photographer began to take some pictures, he said that Beyonce’s guard snapped at him, “No, stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you!” And Zahi said, “In that case, since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite, OUT! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour!” Then he called Beyonce stupid and left! Apparently, Zahi didn’t get the memo that Beyonce only allows her photographer to take pictures so she can approve each one.
Pitbull hosted the fairly tame American Music Awards last night. Miley Cyrus sang “Wrecking Ball” clothed, but with some weird kitten lip-synching and crying diamonds floating in space behind her. Katy Perry offended some viewers by dressing as a geisha for her performance of “Unconditionally.” Lady Gaga and R. Kelly had a Marilyn Monroe/JFK moment when the performed “Do What U Want.” Rihanna was presented the first ever AMA Icon Award, which was presented to her by her mom. And for a record-setting third time, Taylor Swift received Artist of the Year.
