A new musical competition show… Lindsay Lohan’s new club… Chris Rock is coming to Netflix… Brad Pitt sees his children… and Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth are not legally married
NBC is adding another musical competition show — “The Stream.” This is based on a show from Norway. What happens is, everyday people can upload their music on “The Stream” and then it’s up to the public to view it and share it. The 100 most-streamed musicians are then invited to an industry showcase to perform in front of some big names in the music world. They’ll narrow that group down to 30 artists who will be coached for a week and at the end of that week, each of the still-to-be-determined big names in music will sign their three favorites. Then THOSE artists will compete in a live weekly show and the audience will vote by viewing their favorite online. So whoever gets the most online streams for their music wins. WHEW!
Lindsay Lohan has a new love and a new career. She’s opening a nightclub in Athens, Greece, with her new boyfriend, Greek restauranteur Dennis Papageorgiou. He’s actually giving Lindsay partial ownership in his club, which he is naming “Lohan.” A rep for the club says they’re expecting “famous guests from Hollywood” to be at the grand opening.
Netflix signed a $40 million contract with Chris Rock to do two stand-up specials. This is Chris’ first time back doing standup in eight years. The first special will begin taping next year, following Chris on a world tour that’s still in the planning stages. Chris previously enjoyed a 20-year relationship with HBO. But after that ended, there was a bidding war for Chris and Netflix came out the winner.
Several media outlets are reporting that Brad Pitt was finally able to see his kids last weekend. The meeting took place on Saturday, but not all six kids were there. We are assuming 15-year-old Maddox was a no-show based on rumors that he and Brad got into an argument on that private plane, which was apparently the final straw for Angelina. According to the rules set up by the LA Department of Children and Family Services, a therapist had to be there while Brad was with his children.
Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth are wearing matching wedding bands, but they’re still not officially man and wife. Despite going through all the motions at their “Elvis in Blue Hawaii”-themed wedding in Vegas, Clark County of Nevada tweeted THIS — “Our records show no marriage license for Shia LaBeouf & Mia Goth. A commitment ceremony was performed #Vegas.” Why bother with the tweet? The office said they were getting inundated with media inquiries and it is a matter of public record.
