Rascal Flatts Member Jay DeMarcus Reveals He Placed First Daughter for Adoption


In his new memoir Shotgun Angels: My Story of Broken Roads and Unshakeable Hope, DeMarcus reveals for the first time that he had a daughter who was put for adoption in the years before he shot to fame.

DeMarcus says abortion was "never an option" .

“We’d had sex one time, but I knew it. I knew she was pregnant,” Jay wrote. She got pregnant when the condom broke the first time they had sex

“[Maggie and I] discussed many options, including getting married and raising the child ourselves, but we quickly determined we’d be making that decision for the wrong reason.”

So, Maggie and Jay decided to place the baby girl up for adoption.

DeMarcus reveals that he never got to meet his baby girl

The author added: “My heart finds satisfaction in knowing that she ended up with a wonderful family, but I’ve had to live with this my entire life. The adoptive family was supposed to give her a letter when she turned 14, explaining that I loved her, did not abandon her and have tried several ways to make it possible to be in her life.”

This all took place while the Ohio native was in a Christian band East to West with Neal Coomer

Guided by his faith, Jay went on to become a Grammy award winner and is now a father of two.


Celebrities Mourn Director John Singleton

Celebrity friends, collaborators, and fans of John Singleton mourn the director's passing and reflect on his career.

After suffering a stroke at the age of 51, Singleton's family chose to take him off of life support. He was surrounded by friends and family. Part of their statement: "In his private life, John was a loving and supporting father, son, brother, and friend who believed in higher education, black culture, old school music and the power of film.

John’s confidence in his place in Hollywood was only matched for his passion for the sea. John kayaked in Marina Del Rey every morning. His greatest joy, when not on set, was sailing his boat, J’s Dream, up and down the Pacific Coast. The American writer Willa Cather once said, 'There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in the storm.' We who have grown up with John, made movies with him, sailed with John and laughed with John, know the universe of calm and creativity he created for so many. Now in the wake of his death, we must navigate the storm without him. It is, for us, heartbreaking.”

His family also noted that like many African Americans, he quietly struggled with hypertension. More than 40% of African American men and women have high blood pressure, which also develops earlier in life and is usually more severe. Singleton's family wants to share the message with all to please recognize the symptoms by going to

Drake-Lee requested that the court order Williams pay her lawyer $100,000.
She requested the court order Williams to pay $110,000 for the forensic accounting in their ongoing case.

Jesse's attorneys filed an objection asking the court to deny Drake-Lee's request.
Williams has already paid $270,000 towards Drake-Lee's attorney's fees and costs.
Jesse states that the court should "send Aryn a message" that she too is "responsible" to pay for her attorney's fees and that "this is not a free ride."
"Aryn has been able to avoid seeking meaningful employment, preferring instead to comfortably live off her substantial support,"

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - May

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

Liam Hemsworth covers GQ Australia, discusses marriage, babies, and Miley

Liam Hemsworth covers GQ Australia's June 2019 issue, and opens up about his marriage to Miley Cyrus, starting a family, and losing his Malibu home in the wildfires.

On losing his home: "That was pretty gut-wrenching. It was actually real. And it’s just a hard, hard thing to come to terms with. Overnight, you literally lose all your possessions and your space, your nest.”

On marriage and kids: “I was 18 when I met Miley. We really fell in love quickly and had a really strong connection from the beginning and I think in the back of my head I knew it was on the cards. Then just going through something emotional with someone [like losing a home], it brings you closer and we felt like we’d lost a big part of our lives, so we wanted to make a new part of our lives.” He says there's no plans to have children yet, but eventually wants “10, 15, maybe 20 kids [...] But not right now. One day. We’ll know when it’s right.”

On his career: “I’m extremely picky about what I want to do. I don’t enjoy the job if I’m doing it for money or for the sake of working. I love movies so I don’t want to make bad ones.” He says he doesn't want the same attention his brother Chris, or even his wife Miley get, “I just want to sit in the back and be quiet and have no one bother me. And, being around Chris and Miley, obviously they’ll take some of the attention away.”

Other takeaways from the interview: He says he and Miley are both vegan and raising seven dogs, two horses, two pigs and three cats at the place they’re renting in Malibu. He also misses Australia and eventually wants to move back. Full interview: here.

Carly Rae Jepsen Promo For Rolling Stone

Legendary singer/songwriter/street performer/magical nymph Carly Rae Jepsen is starting her promo for her highly anticipcated album "Dedicated" and is featured in Rolling Stone.

She recorded nearly 200 songs for "Dedicated" which is due May 17th but had to narrow down the song choices for the album. The original concept was “chill disco” songs that could be played at a laid-back house party. That directoin changed once she started dating her new boyfriend, a British musician. Jepsen says the heart of Dedicated is the recently released (find it on spotify) bop titled “Julien.” It’s a track about an “everlasting fantastical love” that follows you for the rest of your life.

She confesses that she is always writing and its a bit of an obsession for her. “I rarely write a song and am like, ‘It’s done!,’ ” she admits. “It’s sort of my passion and obsession in a way: late at night being like, ‘I found the lyric!’ I envy writers that are like, ‘I just wrote this and put it on the album.’ I’m like, ‘How do you sleep at night?!’ ”

Her favorite artist is Billie Holiday (OP Note: I love him).

She is OK with not having mainstream hits. “Here’s how I’ll put it,” Jepsen says, her bright blue eyes at their most intense. “I would much rather have a small and mighty group of people who are getting what I love about music and connecting than a ‘Call Me Maybe’ ever again.”


Coachella unleashes herpes outbreak

"HerpAlert," is reporting a "massive" outbreak of herpes in California, which they believe to be associated with the Coachella music festival.

Doctors received at least 250 requests for herpes medication per day during the festival. Most of the requests came from the area of the festival itself and surrounding towns where many festival-goers were staying during the event.

Coachella "is a perfect place for the herpes virus to pop up," one official said. The event typically draws around 250,000 over the course of two spring weekends, and attendees are known to hook up, but also routinely share makeup, cigarettes, and drinks.

Rose McGowan explains her perceived 'anti-trans' comments from heated Barnes & Nobles incident

Rose McGowan is opening up about that heated Barnes & Nobles incident last year where a trans woman heckled her for previously making anti-trans comments. McGowan's defensive reaction at the time caused backlash, with the actress being deemed a "TERF".

In an interview with Jameela Jamil, McGowan says it was a misunderstanding, "I was at Barnes & Noble for my first book signing. I had said to the publicist, 'Something bad's gonna happen to me tonight. [Weinstein's] gonna send someone here to terrorize me.' And he did. He sent someone with a professional camera and a paid-off protester who said, 'What have you done for trans women in prison?' And I said, 'What have you done for women?' And that immediately got taken as if I was saying trans women weren't women."

She went on, "I'm there talking about my book and my personal life and my experience as a rape victim, and all of a sudden, I'm being literally screamed at, but nobody cared about that. Everybody cared that I said one word wrong. When I say, 'What have you done for women?' I'm talking about everybody. I was focusing more on the 'in prison' part. I said, 'What have you done for women?' meaning every kind of woman. 'What have you done for humanity?' would have been the better thing [to say]."

She says that she hopes the general public gains more sympathy for traumatized people who may often short-circuit and not be perfectly composed.

After the interviewer asked her if it hurt that he called her that she said that it doesn't matter because she's alive and he's dead and when the interviewer corrects her and says the critic is 93 and still alive she says "He’s dead as far as I’m concerned." (OP note: LMAOOO)

Need some author drama? "Novelist" plagiarises 40 books

- Cristiane Serruya never planned to plagiarise, and blames ghostwriters hired through Fiverr [pay your writers real money, ffs .red] for the "overlap" between her books and others

- Example of such overlap? Glad you asked:
“She was beautiful. A man didn’t get to be just shy of his thirtieth birthday without seeing some beautiful women, even if it was just on a movie screen. But this one, in the flesh, was one quick wow.”
versus (Serruya's): “She was beautiful. A man didn’t get to be just shy of his thirty-seventh birthday without seeing some beautiful women, even if it was just on a movie screen. But that was not the case with Ludwig, who’d had more than his share of extraordinarily beautiful women. But this woman, in the flesh, was superlative.”
