RYAN REYNOLDS 'CRAZY EXPERIENCE' OF FATHERHOOD

Image
Ryan Reynolds is opening up about the "crazy experience" of fatherhood!

The 38-year-old actor, who welcomed baby daughter James with wife Blake Livelythree months ago, says he's "totally" in zombie mode all the time because he's not getting very much sleep at home.

"There have been times where I woke up, literally had no idea I had been walking for five minutes," the hunky star told E! News exclusively while promoting his new movie Woman in Gold. "But you love it. You wake up in the middle of the night, you got a big stupid smile on your face. I was telling someone else that. Anything else that woke you up every 45 minutes, you'd kill it. But when it's a baby, it's the best thing that ever happened to you."

Reynolds added of sleepless little James, "Right now the baby's training us so I think we gotta turn the tables on this one."

Reynolds also reiterated what he recently told Jimmy Fallon about James' birth…

**** E! NEWS INTERVIEW ****



E! News-- We've seen Gina Rodriguez and her hottie boyfriend Henri Esteve together and up close, and let us just say that they make for one fine couple.

The Jane the Virgin star and Revenge actor have been dating for about a year.

"He's gorgeous! And he's talented! And he's a really, really good guy!" Rodriguez gushed about Esteve when I caught up with her the other day at a photo shoot (more on that later!).

Rodriguez says there's no big secret to making their "great relationship" work.

"I just know that I have a very strong [and] supportive boyfriend," she said. "He's an amazing artist himself who respects the craft…He supports me and I think that's all that matters. We're very honest and there's a lot of communication. He knows that my priority is Jane and him and family."

She also confessed that it helps that they're both "nutty."

Rodriguez is one of Hollywood's f…

EXPAND MARIJUANA DECRIMINALIZATION IN NEW YORK

Image
New York State Senator Daniel Squadron and Assembly Member Robert J. Rodriguez have reintroduced S. 137 & A. 6218, the "Fairness and Equity Act" ("FEA"), a comprehensive piece of legislation that would expand the decriminalization of cannabis in New York State. Enacting the FEA would not only put an end to the racially biased practice of arresting mostly young men of color for criminal possession of cannabis, it would also establish a procedure for people previously convicted of certain cannabis crimes to vacate their judgments.


The collateral damage of being convicted of a cannabis crime can be life altering, including the loss of financial aid for students, exclusion from low income housing, deportation and adverse consequences for future employment. Under state law, the possession of up to 25 grams of cannabis in private is a civil violation, punishable by a maximum of a $100 fine. By contrast, the possession of any amount of cannabis that is burning or in …

Story By: G. H. HARDING ****



SCELSA EXITS --- Legendary air-personality Vin Scelsa is hanging up the headphones. A true pioneer of free form FM radio and a New York icon for five decades, Vin announced on Saturday night during his Idiot’s Delight, his weekly program on NY’s WFUV (Fordham University), that he will retire and do his final show on May 2, 2015, from 8-10 p.m. - ironically right before Letterman’s final take.


His final satellite radio program on SiriusXM's The Loft channel will be on Thursday, April 30. Additionally scheduled is Vin Scelsa's Fare Thee Well Concert, with several musical and non-musical guests; which will take place on Monday, June 8 at City Winery, as a public final goodbye.

IGGY AZALEA TELLS E! NEWS WHY SHE GOT BOOB JOB

Image
Why on earth did Iggy Azalea reveal she got a boob job?

"I love them so much I had to talk about them," Iggy told E! on the red carpet Sunday afternoon at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

But apparently, her friends weren't that impressed with the outcome.

"Everybody did say, 'I don't think you need to say it because no one will ever know because they're so small,'" Iggy said with a laugh. "I said, 'I know but I'm just going to say it [because] I'm a blabber mouth!'"

Besides, now she doesn't need to worry about rumors and tabloid speculation. "I'd feel better not to have some secret," Iggy said. "It's much freer to say it and then you don't have to worry someone will dig it up."

Just last week, the Aussie beauty took part in Vogue's 73 questions interview challenge.

In the comfort of her Los Angeles home, the 24-year-old opened up about her figure and revealed quite the bombshel…

ZAYN MALIK LOSES MONEY GOING IN 'WRONG DIRECTION'

Image
Zayn Malik isn't just walking away from his One Direction bandmates; he's also leaving a multimillion-dollar payday behind.


E! News caught up with Forbes' Zack O'Malley Greenburg to find out exactly what's financially at stake for the young pop star.


"Last year, we had One Direction [estimated] at $75 million which put them in our top 10 on our celebrity 100 list. It is mostly fueled by live shows but also record sales and merchandise sales," Greenburg shared.


And while the 1D guys "played about 70 shows in the past 12 months," it seems like that would "definitely put them on track to meet if not exceed that $75 million figure for the next year."


Greenburg explained that while Malik "is walking away from a lot of money" that $75 million is pre-tax and "before all the agents and managers take their cuts and then you divide it by five. It is still millions of dollars, but it isn't quite as outrageous as it looks on the…

BROOKE MORIBER PLAYS REVOLUTION BAR & MUSIC HALL

Image
**** ON LONG ISLAND ****



NEW YORK -- For native New Yorker Brooke Moriber, having a knack for stage performance came very early on. After garnering the role of Young Cosette in Broadway’s “Les Miserables” as her first audition at age 8, it was clear the young actress had an abundant amount of talent and a bright future in show biz. But “Les Mis” would be just the tip of the iceberg, as her flourishing talents would lead her to the stage yet again as a singer-songwriter at age 15. Flash forward some years later, with seven Broadway shows, roles opposite such stars as Lili Taylor and Kristen Johnston, and a burgeoning recording career--she’ll hit the stage with her band Wednesday, April 8th for a taping of Verizon Fios1’s “Rick’s Rising Stars” at Revolution Bar & Music Hall, located at 140 Merrick Rd, Amityville, NY 11701.


Growing up down the block from NY’s Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village--an area known for being an artists haven since the 1960s--its no wonder…

NICK JONAS WORKS AS DELIVERY BOY FOR SAUCEY APP

Image
Party on, Nick Jonas!

The 22-year-old pop star took on the job of delivery boy on Friday night, delighting a slew of Los Angeles customers who ordered alcohol through an app called Saucey, two days before he hosts the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards and performs at the 2015 iHeart Radio Awards.

Of course, he didn't just drop the booze and run. Come on. It's Friday night!

He crashed a party where he (naturally) did shots with his new friends...(Don't worry, he wasn't driving the delivery vehicle—a Saucey driver took on the role of a Jonas Designated Driver that night, E! News has learned.)

...and gave them their own private mini concert.

Jonas had hinted about his Friday night activities in a tweet.

E! News has learned that Jonas made about 10 alcohol deliveries over the course of four hours.

Claire Gendel, who resides in the home, told E! News she got a push notification from the Saucey app that said they had heard a rumor Jonas was making deliveries for the company in L…

ROCK N’ ROLL PR GUY CALLING --- Ever see the 1957 movie The Sweet Smell Of Success with Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis? It’s a pretty good tutorial on exactly what a PR-guy does and how he works. Plus, the film's a stone-cold classic for sure!


In the record business, the 70’s and 80’s were prime time for the PR-guys who really made the business what it was ... in addition to the brilliant music. Me, I’m old enough to remember guys like Norm Winter, Dick Gersh, Howard Bloom and Ren Grevatt … who handled many of the big names like Linda Ronstadt, Steve Martin, James Taylor, Jerry Garcia and Willie Nelson.


I remember when I was a young buck breaking into this business, meeting Ren (always wondered what his real name was!) and trying my best to worm my way (for lack of a better word) into his good graces.


The right relationship with the right PR-guy would reap much for an burgeoning in-stained wrench like myself. Though I remember How…

Back in January , talking about the new album, Lambert made it clear that he’s gone in a new direction, and the sneak-peek of “Ghost Town” definitely confirms this.

"The album feels like a new era for me -- emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter…
