Gal Gadot tells W magazine that Beyoncé helped her land the role of Wonder Woman during auditions. “The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy number one, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé. ‘Who runs the world? Girls!’ I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!”
Ace Showbiz, citing Hollywoodlife.com, claims Taylor Swift’s next CD will feature several breakup songs. A source tells the site; “Taylor’s musical success has been through heartbreak, that is very obvious, very clear. And now that she is in a great relationship with Joe she is not going to let that effect her music forward. We are still going to hear songs that deal with sadness, heartbreak and of course a rebuttal on Katy Perry. Her new music isn’t going to be all happy because she knows that doesn’t always make a good song and that doesn’t sell records. At the end of the day she wants to have her music be more gritty and visceral like Alanis Morissette during her days singing ‘You Outta Know’ instead of when she changed and got more happy with her singing ‘Thank You’.”
Ace Showbiz claims Katy Perry performed at the Glastonbury Music Festival on Saturday. She ended her show by crowd surfing.
OK! magazine claims Britney Spears’s boyfriend Sam is having trouble keeping up with her in bed because she is so demanding. A source tells the mag; ”She’s very demanding and for the first time in his life he’s worried he can’t keep up with her. To be fair to Britney, she’s been starved of a man for so long so she’s pretty insatiable. “She’s always had a very high libido and it can sometimes put a guy off. Sam’s determined to, er, rise to the occasion though. He’s on to a winner here.”
The Wrap claims pop star Aaron Carter was recently hospitalized after a female fan body shamed him.
He posted: “I’m entirely hurt by a so-called fan that I just encountered she wasn’t realizing I was listening, she said I look like I have cancer. The female fan was talking behind my back not knowing I’m listening & said I look like I have a terminal illness & I need to eat five burgers. “Lots of shows lately, had to head up to ER just to get a little check up these shows are crazy lately gotta make sure I stay strong. Been in the hospital three times this month, dealing with health issues and broken fingers as well as things I can’t legally discuss. I’m not ashamed of my body, maybe I’m too skinny, maybe I’m too short but the one thing I know is I love my fans my family my girlfriend and my friends. I’m #NotPerfect you never know what someone is going through. We are not immortal. #embracelove.”
Radio.com claims Imagine Dragons star Dan Reynolds recently wrote a moving post to fans about the feelings and thoughts in his head.
It read: “I write what I feel. I can’t explain myself. I don’t understand my head and heart most of the time. It feels like a puzzle that I just can never solve. I’m not put together. Music is the only thing that speaks for me. It always has. I can explain myself finally when making a song. And even if I’m the only one that hears that song, it accomplished what it needed to. It made me understand myself. And to hear my thoughts over a musical soundscape to FEEL.”
Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger tells Q magazine that the band never tires of playing their song ”How You Remind Me”. “No, not at all. The second you play that first chord and say, ‘Never made it as a wise man,’ and the crowd all freaks out and starts screaming, right away you’re like, ‘Ah, this is good. This is good.’ All those people, they’re feeling something, they’re taking the trip down the memory lane. That song means something. It means something to me, and also means something completely different to them. I’m just glad that it means something to anyone other than me.”
Sheryl Crow tells Closer magazine that dating is tough. ”My boys always ask me, ‘Do you ever date?’ And I reply, ‘If I ever date, you guys would know about it, right?’ They have met a couple of people but they don’t really look at it as dating. I always say I’m going to go out with a friend or whatever. But also, when you have kids, it helps you make decisions about who you’re going to spend your time with pretty quickly. You don’t want to introduce them to just anyone. I’m not seeing anybody at the moment. Dating is hard work and I know so many fantastic single women who can’t find anybody. But I’ve met some nice people and I’m happy.”
