Sam Smith Took A Break From Music Because…

Sam Smith just released his new song, “Too Good At Goodbyes” today, and he wants the world to know his relationship status. He said, “This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in. I’m still very, very single. I think I’m even more single than I was when I released In the Lonely Hour, so I’m insanely single.” He also wants his fans to know why he took a break from the music scene, explaining that he was, “Just getting on the same page as my family and friends again. My fame and what happens when you become well known really scared mer. I became very distant to my family and friends just because our lives weren’t relatable. So, that was really tough for me. When I’m not close to my family I freak out and I’m just not the best person I could be.” So stepping away from the spotlight brought him back to a family-centered life. Sometimes, you just need to take a break!

Oprah Winfrey Wants Equal Pay!

Oprah Winfrey wants equal pay, even when fighting for it could have cost her the job as TV’s most iconic daytime talk show host! Oprah Winfrey opened up about fighting to close the wage gap for female staffers working on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She said, “I built this show around myself and the producers. We were young women in our 30s trying to figure it out and find our own way. I was making a lot of money, and my producers were still getting the same salary. I went to my boss at the time and I said, ‘Everybody needs a raise.’ He actually said to me, ‘They’re only girls. They’re a bunch of girls. What do they need more money for?’ I go, ‘Well, either they’re gonna get raises, or I’m gonna sit down. I will not work unless they get paid.’ And so they did.” You go, Oprah! Like they were going to fire her, please! J The show ran for 25 seasons from 1986 to 2011 and remains one of the highest-rated talk programs in TV history.

Jared Leto Actually Went Blind For A Role!

Jared Leto really likes getting into character! He prepared to play a blind character in the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 by spending his entire time on and off set during the shoot trying to navigate the world without sight! He wore customized contact lenses that pretty much made it seem like he was blind. Jared Leto was then guided around set the entire time and never saw his costars, not even before or after takes. That my friends, is why he’s an Oscar winner!

Remember Madonna’s obsessed fan that was busted for camping out in front of her house and refused to leave? Well he is about to go to trial against NYC.

He even claims that he'll donate $1 million of the settlement to hurricane victims. All because he sat outside of Madonna’s house!

This has now been called “The Ed Sheeran Effect!” Even Ed Sheeran has said in the past that he was bullied as a kid because of his hair. Not anymore! Being a ginger rocks!
