Sam Smith Creates A Twitter Firestorm For Saying He Doesn't Like Michael Jackson

People aren't happy with Sam Smith and I'm sure he's likely hiding out today. That's because he's getting some serious backlash after saying he's not a fan of Michael Jackson! In a since-deleted video from a boat outing with his friend Adam Lambert (and we all know how that goes, once it's posted, it's posted. Even if you delete it!), Sam Smith can be heard saying “I don’t like Michael Jackson, but this is a good song.” EEK! That didn't sit well with a lot of people and they attacked Sam Smith verbally on Twitter. Some people went as far as pointing out that Sam Smith doesn't even realize Michael Jackson likely influenced much of the music he makes. Lesson learned. Don't come for Michael Jackson, The King Of Pop. Sam Smith hasn't responded to the criticism.

An Update On Aretha Franklin's Health

There's an update on Aretha Franklin's health this morning after the news broke yesterday that she is "gravely ill." As of now, Aretha Franklin is surrounded by her loved ones and resting at home. Aretha Franklin's nephew, Tim Franklin, told People Magazine, “She’s alert, laughing, teasing, able to recognize people... She’s watching TV, so g-d forbid she sees all of this ‘Aretha’s dead,’ so I don’t want to dampen her spirits on that.” Another friend is saying that Aretha Franklin has been sick for a long time. She's suffering from cancer, and "death is imminent." Aretha Franklin's family is choosing to remain hopeful. Tim Franklin said, “We believe she’ll pull through it, she believes she’ll pull through it, and that’s the important thing.”

Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin Not Getting Married Until 2019

So are you taking bets about whether or not Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are going to make it down the aisle? A lot of people are! Well, it looks like they're waiting to get married and are slowing things down a bit. TMZ is reporting that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin won't officially become husband and wife until sometime next year. So even though they got engaged super fast, they aren't getting married right away. Instead, the couple won't be getting married until 2019. I actually think this is pretty smart! Slow down, take your time!
