National Bathtub Day: A good day for a relaxing soak in the tub.... [Read Full Story]If Justin Timberlake had listened to his record label, he never would’ve brought “sexy back.”In a new Apple Music interview, Justin looks back at his career and recalls that the “experts” said “SexyBack” was destined to bomb. He says, “When I brought the album in, I said, ‘This is the first single. Everybody told me I was crazy. They’re like, ‘It’s too fast.’ I’m like, ‘OK.’ Like, ‘It doesn’t sound like you.’ I’m like, ‘OK.’ They’re like, ‘It doesn’t have your falsetto.’ I’m like, ‘OK.’ And I say, ‘Every reason why you think that that’s why it’s wrong, I think it’s right.'”For those keeping score, “SexyBack” spent seven weeks at number-one when it was released in 2006.

It takes a lot of strength to do that !!!”
The Daily Mail says Harry Styles is NOT in the running to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. London bookmakers had listed his odds of replacing Craig at 25-1.Natalie Neal is a grandmother who wanted to stay in touch with her five-year-old grandson Tyrion Spann, so she programmed the Alexa unit in Tyrion’s house so he could call whenever he wanted.It was a great idea because it allowed Tyrion to call easily — and just say hello.But, it ended up being a life-saving move — because Tyrion’s mom, Jasmine, suffered a serious epileptic seizure — and Tyrion was able to quickly call grandma for help.When Natalie got the call from her grandson, she quickly figured out what had happened and immediately called 911.Tyrion managed to stay calm and open the door for first responders, who were able to care for Jasmine.The whole adventure certainly had a big impact on Tyrion, as he now wants to be a police officer or a firefighter when he grows up.Kim Kardashian cared for Kanye West while he recovered from COVID in February. He became infected weeks before the United States understood the severity of this coronavirus.Kim recalled the difficulty saying, “I had my four babies and no-one else in the house to help. Kanye contracted the virus at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary. I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield.”The next Keeping Up With the Kardashians episodes document the family’s response to the pandemic. That includes Kim wearing personal protective gear before national scientific leaders called it necessary.Kim explained on Monday why the family voted to quit Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She said, “It’s really simple. We just need a minute to regroup. We haven’t had a break for 14 years. We just live such big lives. We have kids now and they need us.” (Grazia)

Brad has high hopes [they can] try to make it work because of the importance of co-parenting.”The exes had reached a custody agreement in November 2018, but that fell apart when they couldn’t agree on the private judge to adjudicate their divorce case.The source adds that Brad has “done everything he can to avoid a court situation” but feels he has been “left with no other choice,” if he wants to be allowed more time with his children.
