LOUIS C.K. BEGS FOR REMOVAL OF TRACY MORGAN CRASH VIDEO
Comedian Louis C.K. is leading calls for a video shot moments after Tracy Morgan’s horrific car crash to be removed from the Internet. The 30 Rock star was left in a critical condition along with his assistant Jeff Millea and fellow comedian Ardie Fuqua while comic writer James McNair was killed in the crash in New Jersey on Saturday. TMZ has obtained a video of the scene of the accident shot shortly afterward, showing a man thought to be Fuqua being lifted from the wreckage. C.K., who worked with Fuqua on his sitcom Louie, is now pleading with bosses at the website to remove the footage, writing on Twitter, “Take it down TMZ. Now. Please…Tmz has a video of footage of my friends Tracy and Arte in a terrible crash. They are in ICU (intensive care unit)… Arte’s brave daughter asked them to take it down. They won’t…. Please don’t go to TMZ to watch the video. Please ask them to take it down. @TMZ.”
CELINE DION TO LONELY LAS VEGAS LIP SYNCHER: COME TO MY SHOW, USE MYÂ BATHROOM
A video by lighting designerÂ Richard DunnÂ showing himself lip-synching toÂ Celine Dion's version of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" in a seemingly empty Las Vegas airportÂ has gone viralÂ since it was posted to Vimeo onÂ June 9, racking up nearly 11 million views. One person who sat up and took notice?Â Â Celine DionÂ herself. Celine originally posted Dunn's video to her Facebook page, and she's now filmed a response for herÂ YouTube channelÂ telling Dunn, a Canadian who now lives in Georgia, how moved she was by his video.Â He filmed it literally "all by himself," using the airport's moving walkways and passenger wheelchairs to create complicated tracking shots.Â In many shots, he's seen sitting forlornly outside the airport ladies room, under the large "Women" image, and attempting to hold the image's hand.
BRITNEY SPEARS' MANAGER ADMITS THERE IS NO WAY SHE CAN SING LIVE AND DANCE FOR 90 MINUTES
Britney Spears’ manager appears to have backtracked over his comments that the singer would be singing live on her Las Vegas residency. Adam Leber insisted that Britney would be “singing live during her show” and would not be lip synching at her Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino show, back in December last year. But in a new interview with Medium.com, the manager has confessed that Britney does not sing live throughout the show. It's all too much! “To put on the show that she puts on, it’s virtually impossible to sing the entire time and do what she does,” her manager revealed. “She’s singing on every song, basically, when she has the ability to sing. There’s no way you can dance for 90 minutes straight and sing the entire time.” Brit kicked off her residency on December 27 2013 and is reportedly being paid $15 million a year.Â

The 24-year-old country singer, who has topped DoSomething.org's most charitable celebrities list for the last two years, was again spreading her generosity this week. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia announced that the Pennsylvania native donated $50,000 to the facility for music-themed initiatives — including a music studio on wheels — that teens in treatment at CHOP's Cancer Center can utilize. The monetary donation alone deserves accolades, but, once again, Swift also proved to be generous with her time. The Grammy winner, who's currently on tour in Asia, also visited several of the patients at CHOP. Photos from her hospital visit show the star wearing her signature red lipstick and meeting with a few of the teens. In one shot, she was leaning sweetly touching heads with a young woman and another was of Swift at the bedside of another girl, signing an autograph.
