Study Shows Decline In Song Lyrics Quality: The NYPost says a recent study found that song lyrics have become simpler, angrier, and more repetitive over the last 40 years. Researchers analyzed 12,000 songs and noted a shift towards self-obsession and negative emotions. The study suggests lyrics mirror society's rise in anger. Newer songs tend to use more basic and repetitive language, reflecting changes in how music is produced and consumed.



Tate McRae tells Vogue magazine that you shouldn't be scared to do things that make you nervous. "If a song makes you nervous, that’s a good thing. I can either do something that’s safe, or I can take a bit of a risk and really push myself to the next level."


Teddy Swims tells Billboard magazine that he knows he's in charge of his own happiness. "I used to feel like fulfillment and happiness were the same! I’m very fulfilled. I do the best job in the world with my best friends and make a difference for people doing it! But I have to choose everyday to be happy and choose happiness at every corner! I think happiness can only come from within one’s self. It’s no one’s job or pursuit but yours!"


Noah Kahan tells Spin.com that a recent experience on the New York City subway truly scared him. "I was on the subway, and suddenly this homeless guy started yelling at me. And I'd never been yelled at like that before. It really freaked me out. It took me from this moment of pure joy to 'Oh [wow], is this guy gonna try to fight me?' I got out of there as fast as I could."


Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazine that she never gives out unsolicited advice. “I never give advice unless someone asks me for it. One thing I've learned, and possibly the only advice I have to give, is to not be that person giving out unsolicited advice based on your own personal experience."


Geo TV says Rihanna is considering having a third child with her partner A$AP Rocky. She says,  “I'm batting at 75 percent for a boy next time. So, we'll just keep our fingers crossed.”



TMZ says Lizzo has announced she is quitting music due to lies and bullying on social media. She posted; “All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it. But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me in it. I’m constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views... being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look... my character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name. I didn’t sign up for this … I QUIT.”


Luke Combs tells American Songwriter that he once auditioned for The Voice but was rejected for being too boring. “I still have the [rejection letter] in storage that says, ‘You’re a great singer but…’ [So] it’s essentially about ratings right?” 



The  National Enquirer says Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead are deeply in love and may  elope. The couple has been dating since 2021. A source says, "They’re thinking of an elopement, something very intimate — they don’t like to make a fuss. She and Ant are looking for a place to stay in London while Renée is working there. They may even look for something more permanent and split their time between England and the States."


In Touch Weekly says Cher is allegedly considering adopting a baby with boyfriend Alexander Edwards. A source tells the magazine, "Cher's dream is to have another child and adoption is something she's very interested in. She missed the boat on freezing eggs and hiring a surrogate but adoption is something she very much would like to do. She was so career focused when they were young. She’ll appreciate being a mom this time around.”



Page Six says Tori Spelling has filed for a divorce from Dean McDermott. The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She is seeking joint legal custody of their children. McDermott is being asked to pay spousal support and Spelling's attorney fees.


Female First says Patricia Richardson has criticized Tim Allen's push for a Home Improvement reunion. She and Jonathan Taylor Thomas are not keen on the idea. Richardson says Allen never approached her or Thomas about the reunion. ’I called Jonathan one day and I said, ‘Has he asked you about this?’ And he went, ‘No. Why is he going around telling everyone that we’re on board when he hasn’t talked to you or me?’ I think that’s weird. He was lying to people and telling them that I was on board and I didn’t know anything about it. I would not want to. I mean, Zach [Ty Bryan] is now a felon… it’s not going to be the [same] show at all."


Ace Showbiz says Courteney Cox is in talks to return for "Scream 7". A source tells the publication, "The return of both Cox and neve Campbell signifies a return to the roots of the series, maintaining the essence of the original storyline that captivated audiences back in 1996."



Newsweek magazine says LeBron James is concerned about the squatters that have moved in near his $36 million Beverly Hills, California mansion. The squatters have been throwing parties that have led to arrests and fires. The residents in the area are worried about how to handle the situation, with some suggesting cutting off the water supply. 


Life & Style Weekly says Jennifer Garner has found happiness after enduring a difficult marriage to Ben Affleck. A source says, “Jen doesn’t think anyone knows the truth about her and Ben. Nobody knows what people go through — or how much she shielded Ben and their children. Jen is finally opening up to some friends about how rough it really was. His addictions were worse than anyone knows. Jen’s explained how she had to deal with Ben during benders and blackouts and plenty of ugly arguments. Some pretty incomprehensible stuff. She put in the hard work, gave the unconditional love Ben needed at his lowest points, and J. Lo got the recovered, better Ben. It’s painful to think about, but Jen holds no grudges.”



The Business Times says Bradley Cooper's hard work in films has not been rewarded with trophies. This is allegedly causing distress in his relationship with Gigi Hadid. A source tells the publication, “Bradley is the unluckiest lucky guy in Hollywood. He can make outrageous movies like ‘A Star Is Born,’ ‘Joker and Maestro,’ but he’s not converting that into trophies. People on social media were openly ridiculing him. Gigi has an utter distaste for the Hollywood rat race her man so loves. She lives in a different world. She would be a lot better off with somebody who is as down to earth as she is.’’


The Daily Mail says the next James Bond film might be a remake starring Sydney Sweeney or Zendaya as Bond Girls. Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve is being considered to direct the film. Bond producer Barbara Broccoli wants a return to the fantasy of Bond with larger-than-life villains

Dear Fonseca,

My son's kindergarten teacher and another mother are upset with me because of something I did on Friday. I sent Easter cupcakes to class for every student except one.  That student is a bully and didn't deserve a cupcake.  The teacher handed out the cupcakes, but didn't realize there wasn't one for the bully until it was too late.  She called and asked if I had forgotten a cupcake.  I explained that I hadn't and didn't include one for the bully because he didn't deserve one. She and the bully's mother got mad at me and said I had no right to decide who gets a cupcake and who doesn't.  She says my son wasn't bullied so it's not my business or place to try and make a point.  I disagree.  The bully didn't deserve a cupcake.  The bully's parents say I'm no better than him because I too am a bully.  Am I?  Did I make the right move?
