Tessica Brown gets Gorilla Glue out… Wendy Williams puts out casting call… Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees… Bruce Springsteen arrested for DWI… and Taylor Swift announces re-recorded ‘Fearless’ albumListen to “Showbiz – Feb 11, 2021” on Spreaker.
Tessica Brown has been freed! Last week, Tessica posted a TikTok explaining that she’d run out of her usual Got2b Glued Spray so in a pinch, she decided to try Gorilla Glue spray. That was a very bad idea. She’s spent over a month trying everything to get that glue out of her hair, but FINALLY it’s gone. Yesterday morning, Tessica flew from Louisiana to LA and went straight to the office of Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng. TMZ sent their cameras to record the whole thing. It took about 4 hours, but Dr. Obeng got all the glue out and managed to save Tessica’s hair! Normally, this would be a $12,500 procedure, but Dr. Obeng donated his services for free. Since he’d never done this before, Dr. Obeng tested his solvent on a dummy before he used it on Tessia. Basically, he combined medical grade adhesive remover, aloe vera, olive oil and a dash of acetone.
Back in the day, people would place newspaper ads looking for love. Now we swipe around on dating apps. But Wendy Williams doesn’t have time for any of that. Page Six is reporting that several publicists received an email yesterday from Fox producers announcing that Wendy is looking for a man. It’s basically a casting call for love and it’s not a joke. It starts out, “Wendy Williams IS BACK ON THE MARKET! We are looking for fun men that can handle Wendy.” Now, Wendy is 56, but she’s casting a pretty wide net. Men between the ages of 40 and 65 may apply, as long as they live in the US. Oh, and the deadline is TODAY!! One of the people who received the email told Page Six that it went out to publicists whose clients might be interested in the romantic role, suggesting that they’re looking for someone “high-profile” and “not a schlub from the street.”
We’ve got 16 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021. They include Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, and LL Cool J, among others.

Now usually, six or seven acts are inducted at the ceremony, which will take place in Cleveland sometime this fall. Acts that became eligible this year and could have been nominated but weren’t included the Backstreet Boys, Sugar Ray, Ben Folds Five, Incubus, and Jewel.
You may have seen Bruce Springsteen’s Jeep commercial during the Super Bowl, but it will be a while before you see it again. If ever. I saw the headline yesterday that Jeep pulled the spot after Bruce got arrested for DWI, but a source told the NY Post there’s a lot more to the story. The source said that back on Nov. 14, Bruce was riding his motorcycle in Sandy Hook, NJ, when some fans recognized him and asked him to pull over for some pictures. The source said, “Bruce stopped, took the pictures, then a fan offered him a shot of liquor, which he took, while sitting on his bike, which was stationary. Park Police saw what happened and they immediately pulled Springsteen over as he drove away.” Bruce was charged with DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area. The Asbury Park Press reported that at the time of his arrest, Bruce’s blood-alcohol content was .02. In NJ, the legal threshold is .08.
Taylor Swift announced this morning that she is dropping the full re-recording of her single “Love Story” at midnight tonight — just in time for Valentine’s Day! That song was featured on Taylor’s 2008 album “Fearless,” which is also getting re-released. In addition to re-recording all the songs on the original album, Taylor went into the vault and pulled out 6 songs that didn’t make the final cut back then, but you’ll now get to hear them on the re-recorded release. Because Taylor likes to hide secret messages for her fans, they very quickly figured out that all the capitalized letters in her announcement spelled out April 9th. It was quickly been confirmed that’s the date the re-release of “Fearless” will be available, but you can pre-order it right now.
I’m thrilled to tell you that my new version of Fearless (Taylor’s Version) is done and will be with you soon. It has 26 songs including 6 never before released songs from the vault. Love Story (Taylor’s Version) will be out tonight. Pre-order now at https://t.co/NqBDS6cGFl 💛💛 pic.twitter.com/Vjyy2gA72O— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 11, 2021
