Video Games Not Bad For Kids: A new study by Illinois State University reveals that playing video games does not affect a child's cognitive abilities even if they spend hours gaming each day. Researchers had kids play 150 different video games before testing their math and verbal skills.
Researcher May Jadallah says, “Whether they play so much – up to four hours a day, or as little as an hour a day - it has no differences in their cognitive abilities. I was surprised to see no difference. There were no improvements in kids who play games that are educational or involve fast reflexes. In addition, children who spent the most time gaming didn’t fare any worse than those who spent less time in front of a screen. Parents should not say, ‘Kids you can play as much as you can, or whatever you would like to.’ I would not recommend that at all.''
Kim Petras tells the Table Manners podcast that she recently went to Disney on her day off. ''Yesterday was my day off and I was like 'Let's go to Paris, let's go to Disneyland!' Yeah, we did, we did. I had to, I grew up in Germany and Disneyland Paris was every single vacation we would go on and I haven't been since before the pandemic"
Taylor Swift tells Vogue magazine that her mother wanted her to be a horseback rider. "I wasn't thrilled about the idea, but I gave it a shot for her sake. I rode competitively until I was 12. I finally told my mom that wasn't what I wanted to do with my life. She was disappointed but understood."
Gwen Stefani tells Extra TV that she is looking forward to doing fun outdoor things with Blake Shelton when he leaves "The Voice". “We have Oklahoma, which is something I never knew I needed and wanted, you know? We planted a garden, we do all kinds of fun stuff. So we’re looking forward to doing some of that family stuff together.'
Miley Cyrus tells BBC that she will never apologize for being herself. "I've been told so many times to tone myself down. I always refused. If there's one thing you shouldn't apologize for it's being yourself. If people can't handle you, go find some new people who can. You shouldn't have to edit yourself to be accepted."
The Weeknd tells Insider.com that he wanted people to like his music, not him. “I didn't show my face for the longest time when I first started getting big. That's because I wanted people to like me for my music, not for how I looked. I think more artists should do that. Let people judge you on how you sound, not how you look.”
WMTW says Jason Derulo was recently in Omaha, Nebraska where he left a $5,000 tip for a server at Charleston's restaurant. Jason was in town because he owns a new women's volleyball team there.

Lizzo tells Vibe.com that she doesn't compare herself to anyone. "Comparing myself to people don’t work for me. I definitely have to create my own lane, make my own space for myself to exist in. So that I can exist comfortably because I don’t really fit in nowhere else. No, I don’t compare myself to nobody. No one should. Be yourself and no one else.”

The NY Post says Tiger Woods is worried his ex-girlfriend, Erica Herman, may ignore her non-disclosure agreement and reveal scandalous details about their relationship. A source tells the paper, “Tiger feels like this is another shakedown. He doesn’t want another scandal. It terrifies him, and she knows that because they’ve talked about it. There’s a lot of panic right now. No one wants the details of a long relationship to be made public. Woods has to decide whether it’s worth paying that amount so that this can go away. Or else, will he see her giving an interview to Dr. Phil? He is trying to protect himself.”
Geo TV says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will allegedlly be seeking revenge if they attend King Charles' coronation. Royals expert Richard Eden says, “What we've seen is two big developments over the past week. Last week it emerged that they're being evicted from their only British home, which they described as their forever home at Frogmore Cottage, but then we also learnt that Camilla's grandchildren were going to have roles at the Coronation. Both things I think will have upset Harry and Meghan. They’ll be thinking ‘What can we do to have our revenge?’ and that’s making sure that our children can have these two titles’.”
People magazine says Leonardo DiCaprio may be trying to rekindle his relationship with Gigi Hadid. A source says they hung together at a pre-Oscars party on Friday night in Hollywood.

Danny Wilde, lead singer of The Rembrandts, tells The Guardian newspaper that the ''Friends'' theme they recorded, ''I'll Be There For You'', was the cause of their hiatus. “We didn’t want anyone to know we’d sold out. But the song stuck, the show stuck and it snowballed. The record company rushed us into the studio to cut a full version. We shot a video on the SNL set, with the cast goofing around on our instruments. The song became an albatross round our necks and broke up the band for a few years. My bandmate Phil Solem had pretty much had it, so we took a two-year vacation from each other.”
The Daily Star says Rebel Wilson recently gifted her newborn, Royce, with a $283 piggy bank. The elephant-shaped piggy bank is made by Tiffany & Co. It's baby blue and holds coins not cash

Is it wrong to lie to your children? I did it last night and am not sure if I did the right thing. My family and I were watching the Academy Awards. My son is a sophomore in high school. He loves acting, but is not very good at it even after lessons and several productions at school. During the Oscars, he kept saying that he wants to be a leading man and plans to move to Hollywood. When he asked if he was any good, I told him he was. Should I have been honest and told him that he isn't? How do you handle such a thing?
