Rupert Grint’s photo of baby girl… Christina Aguilera has new management… Mads Mikkelsen to replace Johnny Depp… Britney Spears refuses to perform… and What’s going on with Florida Georgia Line?Listen to “Showbiz – Nov 11, 2020” on Spreaker.
My daughter was super excited to see that Ron Weasley joined Instagram. Actually, it was Rupert Grint who finally joined, posting a photo of his bald baby girl resting on his chest. He captioned it, “Hey Instagram….only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert.” Rupert and his girlfriend Georgia Groome welcomed their daughter back in May but this is the first time we’ve heard her name. His profile picture is super cute. Maggie Smith — who played Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter movies — is planting a kiss on the cheek of a younger Rupert. In just a few hours, Rupert gained over a million followers. He’s already passed 2 million as of this morning.
Christina Aguilera has a new management team. With zero fanfare, Christina is now part of Jay Z’s Roc Nation. Her name just popped up on their roster and Billboard made a phone call and confirmed it’s for real. Roc Nation’s roster includes some heavy hitters like Alicia Keys, DJ Khaled, Mariah Carey, Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill, and Rihanna. Christina had been with Irving Azoff since 2000. Her most recent album — 2018’s “Liberation” — debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200.
Less than a week after Johnny Depp revealed he was asked to step down from the upcoming “Fantastic Beasts 3,” Warner Bros. is in talks with Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen to replace him. Even though fans are hoping Colin Farrell could return as Grindewald, he’s playing the Penguin in the new Batman movie with Robert Pattinson and can’t make it work. So Mads is now director David Yates’ first choice to replace Johnny as the dark wizard, Grindewald. Johnny had only filmed one scene so it won’t be difficult to get his replacement caught up. But the thing is, Warner Bros. still has to pay Johnny his reported $10M salary, and he could really use the cash.
Britney Spears’ attorney went to court yesterday and told the judge that Britney is so afraid of her father Jamie, “she will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career.” Britney’s mom submitted a statement through her attorney, describing the relationship between her daughter and ex-husband as “toxic.” But despite all that, the judge refused to remove Jamie Spears as Britney’s financial conservator for now. She did agree to hear future arguments to have him either suspended or removed.
What’s going on with Florida Georgia Line? Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley have unfollowed Brian Kelley on Instagram, and fans think something is definitely up. Some are speculating that this is a sign they’re breaking up, and they’re blaming the guys’ political differences! Tyler has spoken out against President Trump, while his wife has shown support for Kamala Harris. But when someone commented on Brian’s feed that he’d voted for Joe Biden, he responded, “Think again bub” with an American flag emoji. When someone commented that it would be silly for FGL to break up over politics, another said, “Bands/duos have broken up over less.”
