“Despacito” is the most streamed song… “The Hurt Locker” follow up is passed around… Jennifer Lawrence sick on Broadway… Ed Sheeran returns to Twitter… and Usher settled a million dollar lawsuit
In just six months, “Despacito” has become the most streamed song of all time. The Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee original combined with the Justin Bieber remix have been streamed more than 4.6 billion times since it was released in January. The previous record holder was…………..Justin Bieber! His song “Sorry” and all of its remixes have almost 4.4 billion combined plays. “Despacito” has been the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 for ten weeks. But will it break the record for the longest time at number one? That record still belongs to Mariah Carey and Boys II Men and their song “One Sweet Day.” It was number one for 16 weeks back in 1995 to 1996.

They’ve been trying to get this movie since 2009. It’s called “Triple Frontier.” It was originally supposed to be Kathryn Bigelow’s follow up to her Oscar winning movie “The Hurt Locker,” but that didn’t work out and they got J.C. Chandor to direct. Big names like Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Will Smith all looked at the project but Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum ended up signing on. However, weeks before production was to begin, both of them dropped out in April. At that point, Netflix picked up the project and Ben Affleck signed on in May, but now Ben has dropped out, too, saying he needs to take some time to focus on his wellness and his family. Netflix says the movie will still go on without him…..but with whom???
Page Six says audience members have been regularly fainting and vomiting during the Broadway production of “1984” starring Olivia Wilde. Apparently, the show is loud and there’s a particularly disturbing scene involving a rat. But when Jennifer Lawrence was watching the show Monday night and bolted from her seat to puke in the lobby, her friend said it had nothing to do with the play. Apparently, JLaw picked up the stomach flu from her nephews.
Ed Sheeran shut down his Twitter on Monday, most likely because of internet trolls who didn’t like his “Game of Thrones” acting debut. But Ed had a change of heart and turned his Twitter account back on again. Things are different now, though. Ed isn’t tweeting. He’s only linking pictures from his Instagram. In his bio he wrote, “I don’t use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on instagram, lots of love x”
An exclusive RadarOnline.com investigation has revealed that Usher had to settle a million dollar lawsuit filed against him by a celebrity stylist who claims he gave her herpes. This happened a while back — right after his divorce from Tameka Foster was finalized in 2009. The woman says Usher never told her he had an STD and proceeded to love on her away. After she noticed some gross symptoms, he convinced her that he went in for a test but it came back negative and she let him love on her again. She ended up getting it. The identity of the woman is not being released.
