E! is set to release a “True Hollywood Story” about Cardi B on Monday, but it does not have Cardi’s blessing. She tweeted, “I love E! And I always been grateful for all the love but I did not approve of the E Hollywood story. My life is my story. How can someone tell my story without asking me?” She added, “But hey maybe the story will be good IDK. I mean I haven’t seen it. However I would love to tell my story self when I’m ready.”

If you weren’t aware, Mike Tyson has a podcast called “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.” He invited UFC president Dana White to be a guest on the show and they were talking about some of the upcoming fights Dana is excited about. When Jake Paul boxing match with former UFC star Ben Askren came up, Dana said, “Let’s be honest, Jake Paul isn’t a (BLANKING) boxer. This guy’s a (BLANKING) YouTube kid!” Mike stood up for Jake — who’s actually been a guest on Mike’s podcast. Mike called him a great friend and said he’s “got hands.” And then Dana said, “I hope you can bet on this thing because I’ll bet a million dollars that he loses this (BLANKING) fight.” You can bet on anything, right? So let’s see if Dana puts his money where his mouth is!

Chris Brown has some thoughts on aliens. He posted on Instagram, “If aliens exist, I sure hope our governments aren’t speaking on our behalf. Cosmic disclosure will help us to get on the right path/frequency with the planet and break us free from this mental cage. But what do I know??? I’m just good at dancing.” This isn’t the first time Chris has brought up aliens. Back in 2012, he said his album cover art for “Fortune” was influenced by them. Chris explained, “I wanted to do something different because I’m into ancient aliens. I like learning… I like being stuff that’s other than what everybody expects.” And then in 2017 he tweeted, “Who is the bigger threat? ALIENS?? Or Us???”

Back in November, when asked about running for political office someday, Matthew McConaughey didn’t rule it out. Yesterday on “The Balanced Voice” podcast, Matthew was talking about his current job as a professor at the University of Texas and then started wondering what his next move might be. He said, “I’m looking into in now. What is my leadership role? Because I do think I have some things to teach and share.” When the host asked if running for governor was an option, Matthew said, “It’s a true consideration.” By the way, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is up for re-election next year.

A reporter for Sky News named Inzamam Rashid got THE sound bite of his career. Prince William and Kate Middleton had just finished speaking to teachers at a school that finally reopened after the pandemic, when Rashid went for it. As they were trying to leave, he asked Prince William he’d spoken to his brother since the Oprah interview, and William said, “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do.” And when the reporter followed with a very polite, “And can you just let me know, is the Royal Family a racist family, sir?” Prince William responded, “We’re very much not a racist family.”
