Who is Rob Garbowsky? He’s the father of Greg Garbowsky, who is a member of the Jonas Brothers’ management team. Back in 2011 when one of their concerts got rained out, Nick followed Greg to his dad’s house where Rob whipped up a batch of popcorn using his own special recipe that is somewhere between movie theater popcorn and kettle corn. Nick said it was the best popcorn he’d ever tasted, and started bringing it with him to rehearsals and shows. Eventually, the JoBros decided they needed to sell this to the masses and now Rob’s Backstage Popcorn is available online and at Walmart. And starting today, there’s a new flavor of Rob’s Backstage Popcorn created by Nick’s wife Priyanka. It’s called Mumbai Nights. Priyanka said, “I wanted it to have a little bit of a kick, but not to be like chili spicy. So it’s heavy on the cumin, onion, garlic, turmeric and red peppers. It’s a very interesting spice mix, and it’s very unique to our popcorn.”

Taylor Swift has a children’s book coming out on May 2. OBVIOUSLY, it’s already at the top of Amazon’s bestseller list. This is part of the Little Golden Book biography series that has already featured Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Beyonce and Tony Bennett. Taylor Swift: A Little Golden Book Biography is a quick 24-page turner written by Wendy Loggia and illustrated by Peruvian artist Elisa Chavarri. On the website’s description it says, “This Little Golden Book about Taylor Swift – the singer and songwriter whose distinctive talent for storytelling has made her one of the biggest superstars in both country and pop music – is an inspiring read-aloud for young children as well as their Swiftie parents!”

All 3 original members of Blink-182 — Mark Hoppos, Tom Delonge and Travis Barker — are going on their first world tour since 2014…..eventually. On Feb. 8, Travis revealed he injured his finger during rehearsals, dislocating it and tearing some ligaments. Less than 2 weeks later, Travis let us know he’d injured his finger again, and then shortly after that, he found out he would need surgery to repair the damage. Now Blink-182 is being forced to postpone the start of their tour, which was supposed to kick off March 11 in Tijuana, Mexico, and take them across Latin America through April. No word yet on when they’ll be able to make up those shows, but it looks like they’re all good for the US leg of the tour, which begins May 4 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

This can’t be true…can it? AceShowbiz says Liam Hemsworth has filed a “complaint for defamation of character” against Miley Cyrus, and is considering suing her over her song “Flowers.” Even though Miley never said the song is about him, everybody knows it’s about him. And according to their source, Liam believes the fallout over the song almost cost him his role in the next series of “The Witcher.”

According to Page Six, Travis Scott walked into the Nebula nightclub in New York “angry and intoxicated and progressively went postal.” Travis reportedly got into the DJ booth and had the sound turned up so loud that it was distorting. Page Six has video of Travis pushing away a DJ who was trying to turn the volume down. But according to one of their sources, after that altercation, Travis went up to the sound man, started yelling at him aggressively and then smacked him right across the face. The source said, “It caused a big commotion between Travis’ security and club security. After that, Travis took the phone from one fan and threw the phone on the floor.” Another source said Travis punched a speaker so hard that he dented it, and then banged on a projector screen until it broke in half. This apparently went on for about 10 minutes. Police were called to the club and a complaint was filed, but no arrest was made. Travis’ lawyer said this is all a “misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation.” And the club’s manager pretty much said the same thing.
