Coast Music News – Wednesday, July 22

After his wild presidential rally, Kanye West headed to his ranch in Wyoming — where he got a special visit from Dave Chappelle.
In a video of the meet-up, Kanye said, “The world needs a smile. You know, we need some joy.”
Chappelle replied, “Brotherhood is real, love is real.’’
In the caption, Kanye wrote, “THANK YOU DAVE FOR HOPPING ON A JET TO COME SEE ME DOING WELL DAVE YOU ARE A GOD SEND AND A TRUE FRIEND ALL LOVE”
The visit comes as his family reportedly fears that the rapper and presidential candidate is going through a mental breakdown. Kanye gave an emotional speech at a bizarre campaign rally in South Carolina on Sunday.
The next day he tweeted: “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.”
A source tells Britain’s The Sun that Kanye fled to the couple’s ranch because “he’s very paranoid and is convinced he needs ‘protection’ from Kim and [her mom] Kris — even though they’re only trying to help him.”

Katy Perry recently told Howard Stern that she ended her feud with Taylor Swift in order to set a good example for young women. ”It’s hard for young girls growing up, [with] cliques and high school and pettiness and all that stuff, so now we’re super friendly and I’ve always wanted the best for her and we can talk about the best we want for each other.”

Amber Heard took the stand in the Johnny Depp‘s libel suit on Monday.
The actress told the British court that she was afraid Depp was going to kill her and that he threatened to kill her “many times.”
Depp is suing The Sun for describing him as a “wife beater.” He denies that he was violent toward his ex.
Heard also said Depp often accused her of being unfaithful. She said, “He accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, Billy-Bob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelli Garner.”
She claimed that Depp even accused her of cheating on him with Leonardo DiCaprio, whom she had auditioned with for a role, and that he had nicknames for her “male co-stars he considered a sexual threat.” She said, “For example, Leonardo DiCaprio was ‘pumpkin-head,’ [her Magic Mike XXL co-star] Channing Tatum was ‘potato-head’ and Jim ‘Turd’ Sturgess.’”
Depp and Heard were married from 2015 to 2017.

Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts will reunite in the Netflix drama Leave the World BehindVariety says the movie “is a story about two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong.” Denzel and Julia last starred together in the 1993 legal thriller The Pelican Brief.

She explained this morning that she’s developed a cataract in the eye, which is normal, but it needs to be corrected and it could sideline her for another few days. (People)

Feeling the need to scream? Well, now you can — and you can have that scream released outside … in Iceland. Iceland’s tourism board has launched a new program called “Let It Out.” People around the world are encouraged to release their pent-up anger, frustration and stress into a scream – and then have that scream played on a loudspeaker in the wide open spaces of Iceland.

New this morning, there’s at least one positive COVID-19 development that we’re hearing about. Researchers from Kansas State University have found that mosquitoes can’t spread COVID-19 to humans.

A jeweler here in Michigan has buried gold and silver and gems worth $1 million around the state — and is encouraging people to go on an epic treasure hunt. Clues can be found at the website JohnnysTreasureQuest.com, but it’s not free.

A Kansas family praying that their missing dog would return home, finally had their prayers answered when she showed up — at the family’s old house 60 miles away.
Cleo, a four-year-old Labrador, got loose from her family’s home a week earlier prompting calls on Facebook for help in tracking her down. Then, they were shocked when they received a phone call from the family who bought the house they had sold two years ago telling them that Cleo showed up on their front porch. They didn’t know who the dog belonged to, but they had her microchip scanned and discovered she had traveled 60 miles from her family’s new house. The most incredible part of the story is that to get back to the old house, she would’ve had to somehow cross the Missouri River. (KMBC-TV)

Music News – Tuesday, July 21

Katy Perry says that having “child-bearing hips” helped her keep he secret that she was having a child.
Katy Zoomed into Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show to talk music and motherhood. When asked if she’d field questions about pregnancy before her official reveal, she told the hosts, “Not many, because I’m very voluptuous.”
She went on to joke about the situation saying, “I think in a pop star’s life, usually the conversation every three months — especially when she’s dating someone — is, ‘Are you pregnant? Pregnant yet? You pregnant now? Now? Is that Taco Bell?’… It’s like, it’s only annoying if you let it be annoying.”

We’re not 100 percent sure that Super Bowl 55 will actually happen, but British gamblers are already laying down bets — on the halftime show!
Legal bookmaker CalvinAyre.com has installed Taylor Swift as a big favorite to headline the big stage. Her odds of +150 mean that you’d get a $50 profit if you bet $100. Other top contenders include Adele, at +300 and Rihanna at +600 — even though RiRi has already turned the gig down once due to the NFL’s blacklisting of activist quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
With any luck, Super Bowl 55 will take place in Tampa, Florida on February 7, 2021.

L.A.-based artist Michael Gittes wanted to honor the front-line workers who have been battling coronavirus.
So, he picked a hospital that was particularly hard hit during the peak of the crisis, Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, and got to work creating a painting for each and every employee.
Well, he finished and was able to deliver the paintings last week.
A truckload of 1,800 paintings, each representing a flower, rolled up and were passed out to the workers.
It was the perfect gift. These people have been working tirelessly for months. And, Michael was able to give them something unexpected that showed appreciation for all that they’re doing — and continue to do. (WABC-TV)

Britain’s Daily Mail reports that Jessica gave birth last week.
The couple, who’ve been holed up in Montana with 5-year-old son Silas, haven’t been photographed in public since March and Jessica had been avoiding posting full-length photos to social media, apparently to hide her baby bump.

The Daily Star says Johnny Depp may not appear in another Pirates of the Caribbean film because of the allegations that have surfaced in his libel lawsuit against The Sun. A source tells the newspaper that Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are dismayed about his alleged abuse and drug use.  “They were working on storylines to bid him a fitting farewell from the franchise. They realize that, whether Johnny wins his cases or not, he is likely to be viewed as box-office poison in these sensitive times. But Jerry was hoping there might be a way to get him on board for a small scene.”

The death of Congressman John Lewis on Friday has added fuel to the movement to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, after the long-time activist who marched across it in the battle for civil rights.
The bridge, currently named after a former Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader, became the focal point of the nation on March 7th, 1965, when protesters, including Lewis, were beaten by Alabama state troopers while marching for the rights of Blacks to vote. The incident became known as Bloody Sunday. (The New York Times)
Lewis, who continued to fight for racial equality during his career in Congress, died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 80. (The New York Times)

But 60% of those surveyed said they plan to ease into in-person dating, because they want to be careful. (PRNewswire)

Brace yourself: We may need to settle on Instagram concerts and shows at drive-ins for the next 18 months.
Live music executive Marc Geiger said last week in a podcast, (quote) “It’s going to be 2022. It will take that long before the ‘germaphobic economy’ is slowly killed off and replaced by the ‘claustrophobia economy.’ That’s when people want to get out: dinner, festivals and shows.”
The co-founder of Lollapalooza warned “super-spreader events — sports, concerts, festivals — aren’t going to do too well when the virus is this present.”
Live concerts face several obstacles before musicians can tour again. It’s just not about limiting capacity. Nor filtering recycled air and disinfecting air with UV light. But also insurance and liability could be a serious roadblock. (Consequence of Sound)

The Star claims Britney Spears is struggling while in quarantine. A source tells the magazine, “It’s no secret Britney’s a bit wacky and out there, but she’s finding quarantine difficult to adapt to. Part of it is due to the limited contact she has with her sons — she’s only seen them a couple of times over the past few months — and because she’s lonely and doesn’t have many friends. She spends hours making selfie videos because she’s so bored.”
In related claims, fans of Britney’s Instagram account claim that she is sending signs in her videos that she is in need of help. TMZ reports that obsessed followers see hints in things like a photo with Brit crossing her arms in an “X” and in some of her comments before her dance videos. But the site talked to a lot of people who say that the cocktail of medications that Britney takes to stabilize her mental health has become less efficient over time and that recently she’s been “struggling.”

Months ago, Laura Fisher of La Quinta, California, learned that her kidneys were failing — so she joined the wait list for a donor. Her daughter, Sarah, stepped forward and was a match.
But even at that point, COVID-19 put surgeries like this on hold.
Recently, they were able to schedule the transplant — and it will happen next week.
Of course, it will be different than normal, because no visitors will be allowed. Laura’s other daughter found a workaround, knitting them plush “cuddle hedgehogs,” so they can take a piece of home with them inside the hospital.
Both mother and daughter are happy that doctors and nurses will be able to take care of this life-saving surgery, even during these complicated times.
And, they feel lucky that they have each other for love and support along the way. (KESQ-TV)

Even though the show was based in Florida, The Los Angeles home made famous by The Golden Girls is up for sale. Exterior shots of the home appeared frequently on the sitcom. (Interior scenes were shot on a set.) The 3,000-square-foot property is going for $3 million.

Winona Ryder and Vanessa Paradis did not appear in Johnny Depp’s libel suit on Thursday as scheduled.
Johnny’s exes were due to appear in a British court via video, but his barrister said they decided there was no need to hear from them.
At a preliminary hearing in the case, Vanessa’s witness statement said, in part: “I have known Johnny for more than 25 years. We’ve been partners for 14 years and we raised our two children together. Through all these years I’ve known Johnny to be a kind, attentive, generous and non-violent person and father.”
Winona’s witness statement read, in part: “I cannot wrap my head around (Ms Heard’s) accusations. He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me.”
Depp is suing The Sun for calling him a “wife beater” and being violent toward ex-wife Amber Heard.

Alex Trebek has given fans a new health update and announced a Jeopardy! first.
In a video recorded at his home, the 79-year-old said that for the first time ever old episodes of the game show will be broadcast this summer. New episodes can’t be taped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the end of the clip, Alex gave fans an update on his treatment for pancreatic cancer. “I’m doing well. I’ve been continuing my treatment and it is paying off. Though it does fatigue me a great deal, my numbers are good. I’m feeling great. In fact, during the break from the studio, I even wrote a book that will be coming out July 21st.”
Trebek will release his memoir, The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life, on Tuesday, the day before he turns 79.

A British teen went a little too far to shoot the perfect TikTok video and ended up needing firefighters to rescue her.
For some reason, the 14-year-old’s video required her to squeeze into a baby swing at a park, so that’s what she did. But she got stuck and couldn’t get out. First her friends called her mother for help, but she couldn’t get her out. So her mom called the fire department, which sent a rescue crew over to the park with tools and liquid soap to slide her out of the swing. Although her TikTok video didn’t work out as planned, she still got to experience viral fame as her rescue was captured on video and shared on YouTube. (NY Post)

Lady Gaga tells Apple Music that she hopes people will dance to her new material, even if it means dancing alone at home. “I can’t wait to dance with people to this music. I can’t wait to just go into any space with a whole bunch of people and blast this as loud as possible to show them how much I love them.

Another sequel to Dirty Dancing could be in the works. Jennifer Grey and Lionsgate Studio have a plan.
There isn’t a lot of details, but according to Deadline the studio and Jen are collaborating on a new film that involves dancing.
Considering it’s been 30 years since the original, and sadly, key cast members Patrick SwayzeJerry Orbach and Jack Weston have died — so a reunion kind of seems impossible. Also, there’s no mention of Eleanor Bergstein coming onboard — she created the now-beloved Baby and Johnny characters. We reached out to her and she replied, “I have no details on this at the present time.  If I know more, I’ll let you know.”
Nick Cannon apologized on Wednesday for his anti-Semitic comments. He removed the podcast episode, Cannon’s Class, where he made “uninformed and naïve” remarks.
In a Twitter thread, Cannon expressed his shame that the podcast “reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people.” Nick added, (quote) “My deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words.”
Nick Cannon was not so contrite with ViacomCBS, who fired him from the VH1 show Wild ‘n Out. He claimed that they owe him and apology. Also, he demanded ownership of his “billion-dollar” Wild ‘n Out brand.
He will remain as host and executive producer of The Masked Singer. FOX-TV taped the third season before the pandemic hit. Firing Nick Cannon would’ve required scrubbing an entire season and disqualifying the winner. (Variety)

Like, ‘I can’t wear this dress because they’re going to say it’s like B.’ Or, ‘I can’t have a song like that because it sounds too much like B.’”:

ABC named Tyra Banks as the new host of Dancing with the Stars.
She replaces Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, who were fired only one day ago. ABC plans a “creative refresh” of Dancing with the Stars for season 29 while “honoring the show America loves.”
Tyra Banks once hosted America’s Got Talent for two summers. She created and judged America’s Next Top Model. She said Tuesday, (quote) “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”
Two weeks ago, victims of Harvey Weinstein settled on a $19 million payment to be shared. But the judge rejected that deal negotiated by New York Attorney General’s Office.
Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said in court on Tuesday, (quote) “I will not give preliminary approval to the settlement.”
Six accusers complained about the $19 million agreement, which they called “one of the most one-sided and unfair class settlements in history.” They claimed the lion’s share would go to attorneys leaving them “only $10,000 to $20,000” each.
Judge Hellerstein told the lawyers to seek a better agreement.
ViacomCBS severed ties with Nick Cannon, who expressed anti-Semitic conspiracies on his podcast.
Nick currently was hosting a rebirth of his MTV show Wild’n Out, which now airs on VH1. No word on whether the show will survive without him in it.
The company on Tuesday released a statement,  (quote) “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast Cannon’s Class on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
Two weeks ago, Nick Cannon invited Professor Griff to his podcast. He was once a member of Public Enemy. He departed 30 years ago in the wake of making anti-Semitic remarks.

She was warm and caring and fiercely protective of the rest of the Glee cast. She was tough and demanding. She was fun. She was kind. She was generous. Our hearts go out to her family. The three of us are currently in the process of creating a college fund for the beautiful son Naya loved most of all.”
The results of the autopsy were released on Tuesday. The official cause of Naya’s death is drowning. The coroner did not detect traces of alcohol or drugs.

This is the summer of vacationing in an RV. Throughout the United States, sales and rentals of recreational vehicles have spiked. The RV is an ideal travel vehicle during a pandemic. Large enough to sleep the family but still mobile to get you to where you want to go.
Just one problem: First-time Winnebago drivers don’t know how to maneuver the large rigs. Julie Homrich said they had to landscape their entire yard after her husband “ran over the bushes and backed into our trees.”
Fast food drive-thrus are another hazard for RVs that typically stand taller than 12 feet. Too often an RV destroys overhead awnings. One owner said he was smart enough to walk into a Starbucks to make their order. Getting out of the parking lot was a different issue, (quote) “I tried to go wide. Then I heard a sudden crash. The pole next to the building pummeled my RV. It was a $200 coffee.”
A new survey by the research firm Censuswide reveals that 33% of parents spy on their kids’ Internet activity. Other findings:
– 33% of teens and tweens have created a secret social media account.
– 20% of teens have secret online friends
