Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF), a nonprofit organization founded by Michael Milken dedicated to identifying and funding groundbreaking cancer research programs, hosted the 2017 New York Dinner at Cipriani 42nd Street New York. Legendary actress, comedian, and television host Whoopi Goldberg served as guest host for the event. The evening concluded with a stunning performance by Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer Jennifer Hudson. Proceeds from the event will support the partnership between the PCF and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide precision oncology to all veterans by establishing eleven centers of excellence. By providing access to their more than 9 million patient records, PCF researchers will be able to discover new and better treatments that will impact all prostate cancer patients.

Whoopi Goldberg
The evening kicked off with Michael Milken and guest host Whoopi Goldberg outlining the evening’s three themes: Women in Science, Big Data, and Family. (“What do you think of Big Data?” asked Milken. “I don’t know, maybe I should spend some time with him,” quipped Goldberg). After a beautiful rendition of the national anthem sung by army veteran Constance Campbell, guests learned about the ways PCF supports young female researchers through the PCF Young Investigator program. The Big Data portion of the evening included a speech by Dr. David Shulkin, Secretary of Veteran Affairs, who was presented by Dr. Jonathan Simons, PCF President and CEO. Dr. Shulkin spoke on the VA’s commitment to transformation and modernization, including aggressively attacking prostate cancer, the most common form of cancer among veterans. The theme of Family was exemplified by the night’s honorees, Peter and Laurie Grauer, who were recognized for their commitment to cancer research and dedication to increasing the number of women in leadership positions, both in science and beyond. The evening concluded with a rousing performance by Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer Jennifer Hudson, who sang hit songs including “Love You I Do,” “Spotlight,” “And I am Telling You,” and a Whitney Houston medley that got the crowd to their feet.

NY POST PAGE 6 & HUNTERS POINT SOUTH MACY'S WAR

****
J.Lo’s pre-taped Fourth of July performance angers locals

****

Setting Up Stage For Jennifer Lopez And Macy's Pre Taped Fraud




Jennifer Lopez was in Long Island City, Queens, Friday pre-taping a performance for Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks show — but some locals weren’t thrilled about Jenny on their block.




Residents of a building on Borden Avenue, near the park where J.Lo and other acts perform, say the broadcast turns their block into an annual nightmare and robs them of their liberty to celebrate the Fourth.




“J.Lo is pre-taping today,” groaned resident James Edstrom on Friday, adding that cars were “being towed.”




“It’s not really live,” he explained, “like when they go, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, J.Lo!’ They go to a video. They have hundreds of people [at the pre-taping] going wild — everything is exactly like the Fourth of July, but nothing is real.”




Also reportedly pre-taping the NBC special at Hunters Point South Park this year were Charlie Puth and Hailee Steinfeld.




Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum and Sheryl Crow are reportedly performing at the same spot on the Fourth — that’s when Edstrom says a full lockdown is in effect. A local blog warns: “The night of July 4, no one can get into the park at all without tickets . . . as it is fully cordoned off and accessible only to Macy’s VIPs” and ticket holders.




Edstrom claims his Hunters Point South building, which has some tenants who are veterans, will be “in a frozen zone,” where residents can’t leave the property after 1 p.m. on Independence Day due to tight security measures. “Homeland Security allows us to have four guests [come to the building], but they have to be here by 1 p.m.,” he said.




Residents can’t use other areas of their building to watch the fireworks: One told local NBC News, “It feels like a prison.” Edstrom added, “The mayor is having a party on the roof of the adjacent school — so I am locked in my building and all I can do is watch Mayor de Blasio party on a roof.”




A Macy’s rep explained that the NYPD and other agencies implement a safety plan for the event and “a command and broadcast center must be placed within close range of the fireworks barges. Unfortunately, that may result in some restricted access for local residents.”

JENNIFER LOPEZ AND CASPER SMART BACK TOGETHER

Casper Smart And Jennifer Lopez



Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are officially back on—and she's not holding it in any longer!


The American Idol star posted an Instagram shot of her on-again love in honor of Man Crush Monday and wrote, "#MCM @beaucaspersmart #lovethispic #handsomebear."


And while the two have been keeping quiet about their relationship status, and dodging rumors that they're back together, E! News has exclusively learned that Lopez and Smart are most definitely a couple.


Early last month, the loved-up duo took a low-key vacation to Mexico with J.Lo's twins, prompting many to believe that they were more than just friends.

JENNIFER LOPEZ THRILLED TO HAVE ADAM LAMBERT

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

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



ONE MORE AUDITION FOR LAMBERT --- American Idol’s Adam Lambert can still audition for the show like nobody's business!



Tomorrow, Thursday, marks the season eight winner's debut as a guest judge (filling in for judge Keith Urban).



In the show, Jennifer Lopez gushes about how thrilled she is to have Adam back on board - no disrespect to Keith, obviously. And during the auditions process, Jennifer and Harry Connick Jr. challenge Adam to audition once more.



Lambert’s choice? Queen’s signature "Bohemian Rhapsody," which he sang in his 2009 audition (along with "Rock With You"), and the results prove the 32-year-old has still got it. An amazing performance … once again!



American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday on Fox.



COOPER SET FOR PEAKS --- If you're looking for damn fine coffee, David Lynch and Mark Frost, the producers and creators of the upcoming Twin Peaks reboot have just what fans have been waiting for.



Fans of the cult 1990 ABC series can breathe a bit easier knowing that Kyle MacLachlan will indeed return as FBI Agent Dale Cooper.



The quirky agent investigated the mysterious death of Laura Palmer, captivating viewers when it originally aired over two seasons.



MacLachlan made a surprise appearance at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour on Monday, as part of Showtime's presentation.



Ironically, when the reboot/revival was first revealed, I had just finished watching the initial 2 seasons of the program and marveled at not only how well it held up, but how well the writing and acting was. It reminded me of the first season of True Detective ... that good!



It'll be very interesting to see how Lynch and Frost tweak the new series of shows; which right now will be only 9 episodes in 2016 – but, I predict that order will be upgraded.



For me, I do hope several other characters return from the original series; like Michael Ontkean, who played Sheriff Harry S. Truman; Lara Flynn Boyle who played Donna Hayward; and, certainly Ray Wise, Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn. Beymer and Tamblyn from West Side Story no less!




Also, the exemplary music from Angelo Badalamenti (and, Julie Cruise) was off the charts. And, think for a moment how that music has so influenced the music of today. I hope they'll both return ... and, how could they not?



Many critics and fanboys alike have noted that there’s a line in the end of the show that basically says I’ll see you in 25 years. I didn’t catch it, but I’m sure it’s there. Next year will meet that date.



With TV now being the #1 creative wonderland, what with shows like Fargo, Transparent and True Detective, here’s hoping for the 2016 Twin Peaks to be all that and more. Honestly, it is the media event of 2016 so far.




SHINING ON WITH FRANK SHINER --- “He shines because he isn't afraid to embrace that era of classical … evoking memories of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin.”



Tapped out on duet albums? Crooner-Frank Shiner (NY’s own) has released The Real Me; an album of perhaps, lesser-known songs (but no less impressive) from the likes of Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello and Randy Newman. Like Groban and Buble before him, Shiner has already drawn comparisons to both Sinatra and Darin. The debut album is via Pyramid/Universal Records.



Our favorite is “Temptation” from the pen of Tom Waits. Shiner’s vocal abilities are flawless. His conviction determined. One of the best new voices we've heard in far too long. Unquestionably, a true new talent.



We'll have an in-depth chat with the Wilkes-Barre, PA native next week, where he'll discuss the new album, his influences and his plans. Stay tuned.



CLOSING NOTES --- With a goal of raising a record half million dollars for its 15th anniversary edition, the Light Of Day Winterfest 2015, presented by the Asbury Park Press, reaches to New York City in its ongoing battle against Parkinson’s disease with tonight’s presentation starring Suzanne Vega with Dramarama’s John Easdale, John Eddie and His Dirty Ol’ Band, Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan, and more at Steve Walter’s Cutting Room, 44 E. 32nd St., NYC …



The first round of performers for the 57th Grammy Awards were announced yesterday: Ariana Grande, Madonna, AC/DC, Ed Sheeran and Eric Church will perform at the Staples Center Stage in Los Angeles on Feb. 8 for the annual music awards.



All of the performers so far – except for industry vets Madonna and AC/DC – also nabbed nominations this year.



Country-rocker Church is up for 4 trophies, including Best Country Album for The Outsiders. Sheeran is up for three (including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for x), and first-time nominee Grande is up for two (Best Pop Vocal Album for My Everything and Best Pop/Duo Or Group performance for megahit "Bang Bang" with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj …

MARC ANTHONY WANTS TO GET MARRIED AGAIN


Marc Anthony On Wendy Williams



Grammy Award-winning singer, Marc Anthony, today revealed he has a great relationship with his former wife's younger lover, that he wants to get married again and why his Latino fans have stayed loyal to him for the last 20 years.


"I like them young too! I'm not one to judge," Marc joked about his and Jennifer Lopez' dating preferences before going on to reveal he has a great relationship with his ex-wife's current squeeze, Casper Smart. "It's great, as a matter of fact we were texting back and forth two days ago. We're actually really, really good friends. From the very beginning. When you love someone and you care for someone, Jennifer and I, I don't say it lightly, we're great friends. You know, anybody that means anything to her means something to me. That's keeping it simple. Casper's a great guy, he's been great to my children and I have nothing but respect for him. Absolutely nothing but respect."



When asked whether he wants to get married again, Marc was candid in his response. "Yeah, I do, I do. I believe in relationships. I believe that God has blessed me in so many ways. Material things go but so far. Success goes but so far. But when your house is empty and you don't have someone to invest in, if you don't have a witness, it's almost worthless."

JENNIFER LOPEZ STOPS BY ELVIS DURAN SHOW

****
ON THE RADIO
****



Jennifer Lopez Visits Elvis Duran




Jennifer Lopez stopped by the morning show this morning to world premiere her new song “Live It Up” featuring Pitbull. The song is now on iTunes and is the first single off of her 10th album. “You grow up listening to radio and you hear songs and its just one of those magical things…its something you never even thought would happen one time”, Lopez explains what it’s like hearing your single on the radio for the first time.” However, Lopez prefers to “let there be a demand for the album by actually putting out some good music first” and plans on releasing a few more singles before she decides when the album will come out. 


In addition to her new song, upcoming 3D concert movie, Lopez will also be performing on American Idol before the season in over. Which prompted Elvis to ask the question on everyone’s mind, “Are you going go back as a judge?” Lopez coyly replied “I have no announcements to make right now…I love the show and everybody over there.”


One last message from Elvis “Go download the song, it’s great!”

JENNIFER LOPEZ EXCITED ABOUT CHANGES

Jennifer Lopez


Superstar Jennifer Lopez is very happy that she quit her record label, because the change signals a "new beginning" for her. Jennifer revealed earlier this year that she was leaving Sony’s Epic Records after being with them for 11 years, despite plans to release a seventh album through the label this month. It was announced yesterday that she has joined Island Def Jam, which also has Rihanna and Mariah Carey in their stable. And Jennifer is very excited for the future, insisting she feels just as motivated about her career now as she did when she first started out in showbiz . She tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, "I feel like it’s a new beginning. It ’s a bit like when I was a teenager about to embark on this career but it ’s much more challenging, difficult and harder. I have so much more experience now but I feel just as fresh as I did back then and I’m excited about my life. "I won’t stop doing what I do. Maybe I’ll get to a point where I’m tired and feel I’ve done enough, but right now I see myself always working and expressing myself, whether in music or movies or fashion or whatever. That’s what I love to do."

JENNIFER LOPEZ LEAVES HER RECORD LABEL

Jennifer Lopez


Superstar Jennifer Lopez has left longtime record label. The singer was due to release her seventh studio album, "Love?," with Sony's Epic Records in April 2010 but the project has been thrown into jeopardy following her departure. Lopez's exit comes amid gossip reports that the album has not yet been completed. Her manager Benny Medina says in a statement: "Jennifer had a wonderful relationship with the Sony Music Group, and they have shared many successes together, but the time was right to make a change that best serves the direction of her career as an actress and recording artist. She is grateful and appreciative to everyone at Sony for all that they accomplished together."
