Shang-Chi breaks Labor Day record… Cameo’s top performing celebrities… BTS has 23 titles… Cardi B gives birth… and Scott Disick & Amelia are “taking time apart”Listen to “Showbiz – Sep 7, 2021” on Spreaker.
Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” now holds the box office record for the largest Labor Day four-day weekend opening with $90M! This nearly triples the previous Labor Day record held by Rob Zombie’s “Halloween,” which earned $30.6M in 2007. If you take Labor Day out of the picture, “Shang-Chi” had a three-day total of $75.5M, which is the second-biggest theatrical debut for this year, coming in behind “Black Widow” with $80.3M. But you also have to take into consideration that “Shang-Chi” is available only in theaters for 45 days, while “Black Widow” debuted in both theaters and on Disney+.
Cameo released a list of their most popular TV stars for 2020. This list is based on how many videos they produced, not who made the most money, and it’s pretty surprising. Topping the list is “Big Ed” from “90 Day Fiance,” who charges $69/video. Josh Sussman, who played Hugh Normous on “Wizards of Waverly Place” and Jacob Ben Israel on “Glee,” who charges only $50/video. Coming in third is Brian Baumgartner, whom you may remember as Kevin Malone on “The Office.” He charges $195/video! The Soup Nazi from “Seinfeld,” Larry Thomas, earns $80/video and comes in fourth, followed by William Hung from Season 3 of “American Idol.” You can get a personalized video from him for only $30. While he placed third for making the most videos, back in December, Brian Baumgartner came in first when it came to Cameo earnings. And last year, he said he made over a million bucks doing these videos.
BTS is being inducted into the Guinness World Records 2022 Hall of Fame with an impressive 23 records. Eleven of those 23 world records were set in the past year alone. Several are for various music streaming records. They also have the most viewers for the premiere of a music video on YouTube (3.9M), most viewed music video in 24 hours (108M) and more. They are also the most followed music group on Instagram (48.9M) and sold the most tickets for a live streamed concert.

We’re still waiting on that baby name! But congratulations to Cardi B and Offset on the birth of their new son, and congratulations to 3-year-old Kulture, who just became a big sister. Cardi made the announcement on her Instagram, posting a picture of her and Offset sitting on her hospital bed, smiling down at the baby boy she’s cradling in a big blue blankie. She captioned it simply, “9/4/21” with three emojis — a blue dinosaur, a blue heart and a teddy bear. Offset posted a photo of him loving on his new son with skin-to-skin contact while Cardi looked on from her hospital bed. He captioned his, “Chapter 5.” While this is Cardi’s second child with Offset, this is his fifth. Offset has three other children with three other women.
On Monday of last week, Younes Bendjima posted the DM exchange between him and Scott Disick, who had an issue with their mutual ex-girlfriend’s public displays of simulated copulation on a boat in Italy. While Younes only wishes Kourtney Kardashian happiness, apparently it rubs Scott the wrong way. And the fact that he cares so much rubs Scott’s current girlfriend Amelia Gray the wrong way, as well. At first, Amelia posted a feel good, “Let’s be nicer to each other. We’re all trying our best.” But behind the scenes, sources say things between Scott and Amelia aren’t going so well. A source told People, “Scott and Amelia are going through a rocky patch. It’s partly because of the Kourtney drama but also just ‘Scott being Scott.’ They’re not fully over yet, but Amelia isn’t happy with him.” We’re seeing proof of that because even though they were both on the East Coast this weekend, they spent the weekend apart. And on Sunday, Amelia posted on her IG Story a photo of one of her obviously cold girlfriends wearing a tank top that said, “Don’t you have a girlfriend?”
