Tate McRae tells EatingWell.com that she tries to stick to a schedule when she's not on tour. “I try to keep a pretty consistent schedule. That's the only thing that keeps me sane when I'm home. I'll usually wake up and I'll drink water as best as I can, usually with some lemon. Then I'll make breakfast and I'll go to the gym and start getting ready, and then I'll get ready for my studio session that day."


Benson Boone tells Billboard magazine that he may be a bit too laid back for his own good. “Sometimes I’m a little bit too stress-free. I just make decisions in my head and I don't look back. I've probably missed out on some opportunities because of that, but it's who I am.”



Teddy Swims tells HappyMag.tv that he connects to his fans by being open and vulnerable. “I don’t worry too much about balancing too much between what people relate to and what I feel.

That way, they can get expert help to protect their relationship against future problems.’’

Geo TV says Prince William is being advised to never forgive Prince Harry for his recent behavior.

From the Oprah whine-a-thon to the royal privacy-shredding six-part Netflix series and Harry’s kiss-and-tell book — not to mention all the other sniping, trashy media stuff in between — it’s been a constant barrage of vicious vitriol aimed at destroying the reputation of the Royal Family and of the Monarchy itself. And the fact they’ve lined their pockets with gazillions of grubby dollars in the process makes the selling out of their family even more despicable.’’



Larry David tells The Rich Eisen Show that he knows nothing about March Madness.  “You know what, can I make an admission here?” David started out by saying when Eisen broached the topic. “This tournament — how much can I follow in sports? I’m supposed to know who’s on Drake? I mean, this is crazy — crazy. Valparaiso? I know names on Valparaiso? This is insane. I don’t know anything. Maybe I’ll watch the semifinal, but that’s it. What can I do? I’ve got the Rangers, I’ve got the Knicks; I can’t follow all these teams. How do people do it? How do they do it?”

When I put them on in the morning, I’d be reminded of the history of this piece and the origins of it, which was good to remember every day. They’re supposed to be, like, Easter eggs. They’re like, ‘Oh, don’t say! Go look for them.’ Press pause and look, you’ll find them. They’re just they’re just a little ode to him.”

LadBible says Jake Gyllenhaal had to remind Conor McGregor not to actually hit him while filming fight scenes for their new movie "Road House." Jake says, "It was a bit scary at times. I mean, that first time where we go face to face, I was definitely intimidated.  He was guiding me through the grappling and he was giving me instruction in how to choke him out and do all these things, but ultimately… and I had to say to him a couple of times, like, remind him, ‘Remember, we’re in a fake fight, don’t actually punch me’ and he was like, ‘Oh yeah, right, right, right’ And in those moments, where he’s, 'Right, right right’, you go, ‘Jesus’, but it was good fun."

Dear Fonseca,

I'm a bartender at a local bar that does a Two-For-Tuesday special. I received a $200 tip on Tuesday night. The customer came in last night and demanded their money back saying they were drunk when they tipped me. They said they overpaid me and needed the money because they can't make rent. I was furious and initially refused to return the money. My manager has no spine and is leaving the decision up to me. Now, I'm thinking about giving the tip back because I feel bad that the customer can't make rent. The other bartenders are begging me to keep the cash. They say it's the customer's fault they overtipped because they were drunk. What would you do if you were me?
