One love: Razz­ing on ‘news’

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - JEN­NIFER CHRISTMAN

Spin Cy­cle presents an­other in­stall­ment of “All the News That’s Fit to Razz” …

■ The Grammy Awards are tak­ing place to­day (7 p.m. on CBS). Among those per­form­ing: Camila Ca­bello, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, Post Malone, Janelle Monae, Kacey Mus­graves and Brandi Carlile.

If you just con­fused Brandi Carlile for Belinda Carlisle and got so ex­cited be­cause you loved the Go-Go’s back in the day, you might want to Go-Go watch some­thing else more old-school tonight.

■ Ac­tor Alec Bald­win re­cently told Ellen De­Generes that his wife, Hi­laria, wants to have an­other child. He said, “She wants to have a girl. She wants Car­men to have a lit­tle sis­ter.” Now, Hi­laria al­ready has five chil­dren: the afore­men­tioned Car­men, Romeo, Leonardo and Rafael. Wait, that’s only four chil­dren, you say? (And why so many with the same names as the Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles?)

Don’t for­get Hi­laria’s big­gest baby of them all: Alec.

■ Ma­roon 5 singer Adam Levine posted a mes­sage for fans and crit­ics of his bare-chested Su­per Bowl Half­time Show per­for­mance on In­sta­gram: “We thank the uni­verse for this his­toric op­por­tu­nity to play on the world’s big­gest stage. We thank our fans for mak­ing our dreams pos­si­ble. And we thank our crit­ics for al­ways push­ing us to do bet­ter. One Love. (Heart emoji)”

Spo­ken by a guy who would give any­one the shirt off his back.

■ O say, there is some con­tro­versy o’er Gladys Knight’s Su­per Bowl ren­di­tion of “The Star-Span­gled Ban­ner.” At least in the gam­bling com­mu­nity. Af­ter ap­pear­ing to fin­ish the song, Gladys then sang the word “brave” again, caus­ing “over” and “un­der” headaches for sports­books and gam­blers.

They weren’t so Glad(ys) about it.

■ Star­dust, a forth­com­ing movie about late singer David Bowie, does not have the fam­ily’s bless­ing. Bowie’s son, Dun­can Jones, tweeted, “Pretty cer­tain no­body has been granted mu­sic rights for ANY bio-pic … I would know. … If you want to see a bio-pic with­out his mu­sic or the fam­i­lies bless­ing, that’s up to the au­di­ence.”

We’ll have to wait and see if this sit­u­a­tion ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

■ Singer Ari­ana Grande re­cently got a tat­too on her hand, which she thought said “seven rings” — the name of her new sin­gle — in Ja­pa­nese. In­stead it ap­par­ently trans­lates to small bar­be­cue grill. With the help of her tu­tor, she had an ad­di­tional char­ac­ter added to fix it. But Buz­zFeed re­porter Eimi Ya­mamitsu said the new tat­too now trans­lates to “Ja­pa­nese bar­be­cue fin­ger.”

There’s cer­tainly a tat­too artist/ tu­tor that Ari­ana would like to give the (Ja­pa­nese bar­be­cue) fin­ger.

■ Talk show host Wendy Wil­liams, who has been on an ex­tended leave due to a frac­tured

shoul­der and com­pli­ca­tions from Graves’ dis­ease (and then there are all those aw­ful ru­mors about her hus­band, a mis­tress and a love child), has more sub­sti­tute hosts sched­uled through at least this week.

The “How you doin’?” host has not been doin’ so hot.

■ About the pos­si­bil­ity of a

Two and a Half Men re­vival, ac­tor Char­lie Sheen told Us Weekly: “I would do it to­day.” Only he ad­mit­ted, “I haven’t been in touch with any­body [from the show].” And, oh yeah, his char­ac­ter was killed off.

So prob­a­bly don’t ex­pect One and a Half Men and a Ghost any­time soon.

■ Ac­tor Ash­ton Kutcher re­cently shared his phone num­ber via so­cial me­dia. And not by ac­ci­dent. He said in a tweet: “I miss hav­ing a real con­nec­tion w/ real peo­ple. My Com­mu­nity. From now on you can just text me. I won’t be able to re­spond to ev­ery­one but at least we can be real w/ each other & I can share the unedited lat­est & great­est in my world. Yes this is my #.” Af­ter be­ing bar­raged by mes­sages and delet­ing the tweet, he shared an­other: “I will re­post soon… sms is a frag­ile beast.”

The for­mer Punk’d host’s phone punk’d out.


Brandi Carlile — not Belinda Carlisle — will per­form at tonight’s Grammy Awards.
