Video Music Awards nominations… Kate Hudson has shaved her head… A “Wonder Woman” sequel… Is Rachel Lindsay’s dad camera shy?… and Did Justin Bieber cancel tour for religious reasons?
MTV has announced the nominations for the 2017 Video Music Awards. Kendrick Lamar lead with the most nominations. He got eight noms for his “HUMBLE” video. Katy Perry and The Weeknd are tied for second with five nominations each. The biggest award of the night is for Video of the Year, and the nominees this year are Kendrick Lamar for “HUMBLE,” Bruno Mars for “24K Magic,” Alessia Cara for “Scars to Your Beautiful,” DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller for “Wild Thoughts,” and The Weeknd for “Reminder.” The awards will be handed out live from LA on Sunday, August 27.
Kate Hudson has shaved her head practically bald and she looks FLAWLESS. She did it for a project she’s working on with Sia. It looks like Katy is starring in her next music video along with Sia’s dancing muse, 14-year-old Maddie Ziegler.
“Wonder Woman” has already earned about $770 million worldwide and breaking all sorts of box office records, so DUH. There’s going to be a sequel. But we have to wait until December 13, 2019, for “Wonder Woman 2.” Gal Gadot will be back as Wonder Woman but the studio is still in talks to have Patty Jenkins return as the director. You’ll get more Wonder Woman in November, though, because she’s featured in the upcoming “Justice League” movie.
If you watched “The Bachelorette” Monday night, Rachel said her dad couldn’t make it to meet her final three men so her uncle was there as his stand-in. The truth is, her daddy WAS there. Sam A. Lindsay is a federal judge and he can’t appear on these ridiculous TV shows, but there was no way he wasn’t going to meet the men trying to wife his baby girl! So he just stayed out of the camera shots and talked to the men when the cameras weren’t rolling. In fact, Mr. Lindsay was also there when Rachel brought Nick Viall home during her stint on “The Bachelor.”
Sources are saying Justin Bieber canceled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour for religious reasons. TMZ spoke to several people connected to the Hillsong Church who say Justin has been spending a lot of time with the church’s founder, Carl Lentz, and that through his conversations with Carl, Justin decided to re-dedicated his life to Christ. But reportedly, Carl didn’t tell Justin to cancel the tour. In fact, he encouraged Justin to continue. But when a paparazzo caught up with Justin walking into a restaurant yesterday — minus an entourage and bodyguards, by the way — the cameraman asked him if religion was the reason he canceled the tour and Justin said no.
