In movie and streaming news, John Cena is in the upcoming “Barbie” movie because he’s in the upcoming “Fast X” movie. John said it was a “happy accident” that the two movies were filming right across the street from each other, and when he ran into “Barbie” star and producer Margot Robbie, he pitched himself to her, saying he’d pretty much do whatever they needed. They asked him if he wanted to be a merman and he said, “Yeah, sure.” The final Indiana Jones movie starring Harrison Ford comes out June 30. To get everybody hyped up for that, the four previous Indiana Jones movies will start streaming on Disney+ starting May 31st. Also coming to Disney+ on June 7th is “Avatar: The Way of Water.” The movie brought in $2.32B at the box office, and now an entirely new audience will get to see the movie from their comfy couches, with some bonus content.

Jennifer Lopez says she has a lot of guilt as a celebrity mom. Her twins Max and Emme are now 15, and Jennifer said they have just started letting her know how they’re treated when they walk into a room. She said, “I think being the child of famous parents is not something many people can understand, and I feel for them for that because they didn’t choose that…Everybody has to deal with being bullied….But they know that there’s a lens on them and that’s hard.” And now Hailey Bieber is sharing her fears about bringing children into this world. She told “The Sunday Times,” “I want kids so bad, but I get scared. It’s enough that people say things about my husband or my friends. I can’t imagine having to confront people saying things about a child.” Hailey said she literally cries about this all the time. But if and when she and Justin do have kids, Hailey said they can only do the best they can to raise them and make them feel loved and safe. She said, “If you let things like (online hate) silence you, you’re allowing people to dictate how you live your life.”

While JoJo Siwa was away on a cruise, thieves broke into her home in LA. She shared the security video of these armed robbers busting into her home around 2:40am Monday. The security system immediately notified police. When they arrived, officers found a door wide open but the thieves had already taken off. JoJo said there was a lot of “materialistic damage” from the break-in but that can all be fixed. She said the video made her sick to watch, but she’s just happy her family and her dogs are safe. She didn’t say what was stolen, but she did tell her followers, “Do me a favor and hug your people extra tight tonight. Life is SCARY. And you never know when anything could happen.”

It looks like Britney Spears is responding to TMZ’s documentary about her post-conservatorship life that aired Monday night. She made several posts on her Instagram, proving to us how happy and healthy she AND her marriage are. First, she let us know, “I’m so excited about this month!!! I’m remodeling 3 rooms in my house!!! I’m actually just getting white paint and going to repaint the rooms myself!!! I’ve never painted a room before so I’m pretty excited … don’t laugh!!! My husband has given me free will to do whatever I want!!!” Then it sounds like she’s taking a jab at TMZ, posting a photo of a fruity cocktail, captioning it, “Word – Well catch me when I fall … you all know my story??? So go to Hell… I will meet ya there!!! Stupid poem … hearts and HUGS HUGS HUGS!!! PSSS the drink had a frozen baby flower that was frozen in pure sugar … so cute right???” The slide that goes with this is a photo of Britney and her manager in Hawaii when they vacationed there about a month ago. That’s when she and Sam both took off their wedding rings and rumors started their marriage was in trouble. Then Britney posts a couple videos — one posing in shorts and a crop top, the other dancing in a red bikini, red boots and red hat video —which may mean something because “red” is very important to Britney. That’s followed by a video of her and Sam making out and posing under a flower arch, saying she’s proud of her flowers, she’s excited about redesigning her house, and she “feels so blessed to be with such an incredible husband who inspires me everyday!!!” If you have a comment, don’t bother. They’ve been turned off.

Meghan Markle was honored at an event in New York Tuesday night, and when she and Prince Harry left, their spokesperson said they were victims of a “near catastrophic” paparazzi chase through the streets of Manhattan. The spokesperson said, “This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.” NYC Mayor Eric Adams was holding a press conference about something else, but he was asked about this chase. The mayor said it was “reckless and irresponsible” and reminded everyone that Harry’s mom died in a paparazzi chase. However, he also questioned the duration of the chase, adding that even if it was only 10 minutes, that would be dangerous. Harry and Meghan were being escorted to their friend’s home by private security and NYPD. The police are downplaying the incident, saying that while there were “numerous photographers that made their transport challenging, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at their destination and there were no reported collisions, summonses, injuries, or arrests in regard.” Oh, and an anonymous source within the NYPD said it “definitely wasn’t two hours.” While private security claims paparazzi were jumping curbs and running red lights, some photographers told Page Six it was the security detail that was driving erratically, trying to shake off the paparazzi. So One eyewitness told Page Six the couple’s security was more to blame, mocking and provoking the paparazzi. And photographers said it was the private security detail that was driving erratically, trying to shake them off. after driving in circles, the entourage stopped at a precinct where a security member flagged down a passing cab and Harry and Meghan jumped in. The Post talked to the driver who said six paparazzi surrounded his cab when they got stuck behind a garbage truck and that he was tailed by two cars. But he said he never felt like he was in danger and “it wasn’t like a car chase in a movie.” Harry and Meghan asked to be taken back to the police station, and made their way somehow to their final destination, two blocks away. Harry and Meghan are being blasted for their version of events. Rob Souter, who is a former publicist for mega celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and P. Diddy, said what Harry and Meghan did “was not reasonable.” He said, “We know where Beyonce lives. We know where Taylor Swift is staying. It’s New York City. If there were any real concerns over their safety, they could’ve just pulled over.” And a lot of people on social media are bringing up the recent South Park episode that parodied Harry and Meghan asking for privacy while always seeking the spotlight.
