A rapper stared directly at the eclipse… Chuck Norris two massive heart attacks… Prince Harry’s plans… Katy Perry claims to be the new Simon Cowell… and Will Taylor Swift be at the VMAs?

A rapper named Joey Bada$$ is SO bad a** that he decided to ignore all the warnings and stare directly at the eclipse on Monday. He even bragged about it on Twitter, “I’ve sungazed before and afterwards saw colors for a whole day. I didn’t die tho…This aint the first solar eclipse and I’m pretty sure our ancestors ain’t have no fancy eyewear. Also pretty sure they ain’t all go blind.” Joey Bada$$ has now canceled upcoming shows in Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

Chuck Norris is proving once again that nothing can stop him. RadarOnline.com is reporting that he suffered two massive heart attacks about a month ago and had to be zapped back to life! It reportedly happened after he made an appearance at a martial arts championship fight in Vegas. After the event, the source says Chuck, his wife and their small entourage decided to break up the 9-hour drive back home to Chester, CA, by stopping at a casino in this remote part of Nevada. Chuck collapsed in his hotel room shower and had to be rushed by ambulance for 100 miles to the nearest that had to take him 100 miles to the nearest hospital! The source said he stopped breathing on that ride and medics used a defibrillator to get his heart going again. But after arriving at the hospital, Chuck reportedly suffered a second heart attack! And after he was stabilized, he was flown by helicopter to ANOTHER hospital to get the best medical attention.

One of Prince Harry’s friends said he PLANNED on proposing to Meghan Markle when he took her on an African safari for her 36th birthday but decided to put it off until after the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death on August 31st and then the Queen’s 70th wedding anniversary on November 20th. Another source says he did propose, but they’re keeping it a secret until after these events pass. As far as a ring, Us Weekly is reporting that Harry is using the diamonds from a brooch he inherited from his late mother.

Ryan Seacrest asked Katy Perry who she would like to see sitting next to her on the American Idol judges panel, and she said Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth! She also said that she thinks she’ll be the Simon Cowell of the group. She said, “As much as people said, ‘Oh, he’s grumpy or he’s mean,’ he was just truthful, you know? He’s seen it. I don’t need to be there to win the popular race.”

Katy Perry is hosting the VMAs this Sunday and everyone is speculating that Taylor Swift will make an appearance to promote her new single AND finally quash the feud with Katy. But the producer behind the awards show says this is all news to him. Garrett English says he’s heard the rumors just like we have, but as far as he knows, that’s not happening.
