Joey Fatone of *NSYNC on Michael Rosenbaum's podcast, Inside of You



*NSYNC member Joey Fatone chatted with Michael Rosenbaum for about 2 hours on his podcast series, Inside of You.

Talks about:

  • His early singing career at Dr Phillips High School in an acapella group with Luis Fonsi

  • *NSYNC's origins, and how Jason Galasso, the original bass member whom Lance replaced, dropped out of the band the day they were due to sign their contract with the recording label. Says that everyone was mad about it but JC was PISSED that he didn't show. Also mentions that the label wanted to kick Lance out and add a black guy to the lineup instead, but they all refused.

  • He used to get slapped round the head with a flip flop by his mum growing up lol. He also mentions going out with his mum soon after the band had split, and promised to take a photo with a fan after eating, but got annoyed because the fan was snapping photos of him during the meal anyway. When the fan came back and Joey refused the photo, his mum forced him to take a picture with the fan anyway because he promised lol

  • Says he respects Justin for touring solo, because it's more challenging on one person than it is on five people. Apparently Joey contracted pneumonia and still had to perform through it, and has only ever missed one show in his career because of it.

  • He is in the process of divorcing his wife Kelly, whom he's been with for 20 years. He says he realised he screwed up by leaving all the childcare to his wife and not giving her enough of a break, and has learned to spend more quality time with his kids

  • His Fat One's hot dog business and eventual expansion

  • His poor financial choices - like buying a used Batmobile, or how he decked out his house with Star Wars memorabilia and customised rooms, but eventually sold it bc he realised if he kept spending like that, he probably would've ended up bankrupt

It's a pretty long podcast, but decently interesting background noise while you're pottering around, especially when he talks about the early *NSYNC days.

Prince didn't know he was taking Fentanyl; no one charged with a crime



-Effectively ends the state's two-year investigation into how Prince got the fentanyl that killed him.

-Prince died two years ago because he thought he was taking the painkiller Vicodin when, unbeknownst to him, it was laced with deadly fentanyl.

-No one will be charged with a crime because there's no evidence showing how he got fake Vicodin laced with fentanyl.

-Prosecutor says neither Prince nor anyone around him knew he was addicted to fentanyl. (I find this hard to believe.)

-Says there's no evidence of probable cause, and no evidence that these laced pills were prescribed by a doctor.

-Prosecutor added that because no charges will be filed, most of the case file on the investigation would be made public in a few days, but not the full autopsy report, which remains sealed under Minnesota law.

'Super Troopers 2' speeds ahead of Amy Schumer's 'I Feel Pretty' in Thursday night box office




As continued proof that Americans have fucking awful taste, 'Super Troopers 2' topped Thursday night box office sales, with $1.4 million. That was more than Amy Schumer's new comedy 'I Feel Pretty', which made $1 million on Thursday previews.

'Super Troopers 2' was tracking to make just $6M but thanks to its inexplicable boost from Thursday, it could make around $20M this weekend. 'I Feel Pretty' is projected to make around $13-$15M this weekend.

A third movie, 'Traffik', starring Paula Patton, made $225,000 on Thursday and is expected to make around $3-$5M. Basically America's saving up for The Avengers next week to destroy all records, etc.

Johnny Depp Dropped By Second Law Firm In A Month



Johnny Depp's legal team had dumped him just before their trial was about to start. This is the second time he has been dumped by his lawyers. Just two weeks ago, his former attorneys dropped him.

Johnny is in a $25 million fraud trial with his former business managers. He accused them of stealing his money. They accused him of spending recklessly and making his own damn self broke.

According to them, Depp's day-to-day expenses alone totaled $2 million a month. He owned 14 homes, had a massive collection of art, guitars, wine, memorabilia, and rare artifacts. He paid $10 million annually to friends, family, and bodyguards. The firm even had to loan him $5 million dollars when the actor was desperate for cash.

Prince Charles Tells a Woman She "Doesn't Look" Like She's From Manchester



- A Manchester-born woman with a Guyanese mother met the future head of the Commonwealth, where he said she didn't look like she was Manchester.

- Her Guyanese mother's line came to Guyana from India as indentured servants. She claims to have 4 different commonwealth countries in her heritage. Both Guyana and India are Commonwealth Countries.

- Prince Charles was recently promoted to be the next leader of the Commonwealth, with the Queen's "sincerest wish" that he become so.

- Both his asshole father, and balding Ginger son have made similar remarks...and his bucktoothed, bald son blamed Africans for global overpopulation so it seems to run in the inbred genes.

Unlucky 7: Intended Lead Singles That Were Scrapped (ONTD Original)



Even if you had the #focus groups tested and executives approving your next singles, things can go awry when they don't meet certain expectations whether it's artistic or chart-wise. Not to be confused with charity singles or stand-alone singles... actually it does get confusing because artists want to save face and deem these rejected lead singles as something else, commonly referred to as 'buzz' or 'promo' tracks.

Let's just consider any changes of plans as a sign from #god, including with the following pop songs.
There will also be a few honorable mentions of songs released around the same time but also did not make any cut.


7. Focus by Ariana Grande
Intended for: Moonlight/Dangerous Woman (2016)
Replaced by: "Dangerous Woman"


Release: She teased the song on social media and on her Honeymoon tour, and slowly unveiled the single cover art following the release, showing a new look with platinum blonde hair. AG3 was initially called Moonlight with the title track later appearing on Dangerous Woman.
Cancellation: Although appearing in the top 10 of the Hot 100, the song received mixed reviews, and it probably did not measure up to the intended success for a lead single her label was looking for.
Appeared on any album format? Yes, it got Japanese bonus track'd on DW.

A Long-Expected Autopsy of "The Hobbit": A Three-Part Youtube Series



– Lindsay Ellis released the last entry of her analysis of The Hobbit. In each video, Ellis goes into different aspects of the trilogy and dissects what worked (Bilbo and Thorin) and what didn't (Tauriel and Kili, everything else).
– John Callen, Oin the dwarf appears in an interview with her and talks about behind the scenes camraderie and the national labor laws that were affected by the production and Warner Bros. Essentially everyone started off filming with a strong sense of purpose and that diminished as time went on and the reshoots happened.
– Laments not just the original vision what could have been The Hobbit with Guillermo Del Toro before Peter Jackson stepped in, but also the experience of growing up with (or past?) The Lord of the Rings trilogy and being critical of content and what content you choose to engage with.

Moderator booed after asking Michelle Pfeiffer how much she weighed during Scarface


  • At a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival celebrating 35 years of the movie Scarface moderator Jesse Kornbluth opened with the always promising line "As the father of a daughter" before just jumping forward and asking Michelle Pfeiffer how much she weighed while filming the movie

  • He was promptly booed by the audience while someone loudly asked him why he needed to know that

  • Pfeiffer appeared taken aback, but after saying that she didn't know, pointed out that she was playing a cocaine addict in the film

  • Kornbluth said that was his point in asking the question

  • When reached for a statement Kornbluth said:

It is true that a gentleman should never ask a woman about her weight. But that was not my question. (OP NOTE: HIS EXACT QUESTION WAS: As the father of a daughter I'm concerned with body image. In preparation for this film what did you weigh? 75 pounds?)It is a comment on the knee-jerk political correctness of our time that no one would be shocked if you asked Robert De Niro about the weight gain required for his role in ‘Raging Bull’ but you get booed — not by many, but by a vocal few — for asking Michelle Pfeiffer about the physical two-dimensionality required for her to play a cocaine freak in “Scarface.”

Scandal Series Finale - Who lived, who died and who did Liv end up with?!




Last night was the series finale of Scandal and the author of this article wrote a very....nice recap but I'm not going to be so nice. The final episode tied up some loose ends and was extremely fast paced. We get a surprise appearance from the vile Hollis Doyle, some commentary from Sally Langston, a half ass ending for 2 characters that honestly seemed like an after thought when writing the script, a cringe worthy monologue from David Rosen about being 'Americas bitch', angsty-love arguing for Liv & Fitz, Cyrus fully embracing the dark side [Spoiler (click to open)] and murdering David Rosen bc Jake basically called him a wimp for never getting his own hands dirty and what would Scandal be without an over the top but extremely accurate monologue from the one and only Eli Pope.

All in all, the season probably could have used two more episodes because the episode was so rushed trying to close out everyone's stories.

First Ever Chocolate Vinyl Made for PRETTYMUCH Single "Hello"



Music you can eat?

Record Store Day is tomorrow for you vinyl collectors, and what a special way to celebrate it with an edible limited edition chocolate vinyl of PRETTYMUCH's latest single "Hello"? They're being endorsed with Kellogg's cereal which is also in-conjunction to the new Chocolate Frosted Flakes, also out in your grocery stores. They're actually giving the chocolate disc away in NY with a real copy of the vinyl single.

This is the 'first ever cereal' vinyl, however I can recall this is not the only first unconventional/novelty of its kind, when the band Shout Out Louds promoted their song "Blue Ice" with a vinyl mold that fans can pour water and freeze in 2013.

ONTD Original: It's Taurus Season! Which Celebs Share Your Sign?



According to tarot.com, Taurus people are both sensible and sense-driven. Their stubborn determination motivates hard work and leads to a lot of successes, but their inability to admit when they are wrong can cause rifts in personal and professional relationships. Indulgent by nature, the Taurus knows how to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life — but may need to be reminded that satisfaction can be found outside material possessions and luxury experiences.

In honor of Taurus season, here are a few celebrities who have lived up to the sign.


Adele was born May 5, 1988.

In her 2017 Grammy Awards acceptance speech, Adele embodied one of the strongest Taurus traits: an unwavering commitment to her point of view. The decorated singer spoke about her struggles as a mother and artist before turning her attention to her fellow nominee, Beyoncé. Adele said that while she was humbled by the recognition, she could not accept the award over Lemonade, which she called mesmerizing, soul-baring, and empowering--especially to black girls. In true Taurus fashion, she later turned her words into action and snapped the trophy in half to share with Bey. (x)



Asked about the speech after the fact, she reiterated her loyalty to her last living musical idol:
