The highly-anticipated, Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic “Elvis” hits theaters on June 24, but the artists on the soundtrack were announced yesterday. We already knew that Kacey Musgraves recorded a cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” And Doja Cat’s “Vegas” is already out there. The soundtrack features previously unreleased “original songs and recordings” by Elvis, the movie’s star Austin Butler, Eminem & Cee-Lo Green, Swae Lee & Diplo, Måneskin, Tame Impala, Stevie Nicks, Jack White and MORE! We don’t know when the soundtrack will be released, but many assume it will come out the same day as the movie.

She’s still basking in her wedding glow, but Kourtney Kardashian only needed a minute to update her IG bio to Kourtney Kardashian Barker with a little heart on fire emoji. Her handle remains @KourtneyKardash. Kourtney’s head may be too high in the clouds right now to realize that she and Travis are being slammed on social media for using Catholicism as a wedding aesthetic and making a mockery of the religion. As one tweeted, “Liturgical garments used during mass are not something fashionable.” Another posted, “I’m just going to say it point blank. Kourtney Kardashian’s use of the Blessed Mother in her outfit(s) during her wedding weekend was extremely offensive to me as a Catholic … I have a right to feel offended by it.”

“Time” magazine is out with their annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Time’s CEO and editor-in-chief said, “Influence, of course, may be for good or for ill — a dichotomy never more visible than in this year’s Time 100, which includes both Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky…..The Russian dictator behind a brutal war, and his foe, the Ukrainian President, whose leadership has made him a rare heroic figure in our divisive time.” Time divided the 100 up into several categories. Without going through the entire list, Simu Liu, Andrew Garfield, Zoe Kravitz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Pete Davidson, Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried all made the list of influential artists. Zendaya and Miranda Lambert landed on the innovators list. When it comes to titans, Time listed Oprah, Kris Jenner and Apple’s Tim Cook, among others. Icons included Mary J. Blige, Keanu Reeves, Adele, and Issa Rae. And joining the aforementioned Putin and Zelensky on the leaders list are President Biden, Florida Governor Ron Desantis, and Joe Rogan.

Maya Henry appreciates all the concern, but please stop sending her pictures of Liam Payne and some brunette. She posted, “I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman. This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.” Page Six found out this mystery brunette is Aliana Mawla, an Instagram model who happens to be followed by Kanye’s girlfriend Chaney Jones. Aliana actually worked with Liam way back in 2018 in a promo video for his J. Balvin collaboration, “Familiar.” But what’s Liam doing with her when he’s supposed to be engaged — again — to Maya? Liam’s rep told Page Six that he and Maya “split up,” but perhaps Maya should’ve been informed.

Some people want to take the day off after the Super Bowl, but many are going to want to take tomorrow off. After six seasons, the Pearson family will say goodbye on the series finale of “This Is Us” tonight 9/8CT on NBC. NBC has you covered. Yesterday, NBC’s Twitter account posted a doctor’s note signed by Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore’s) OB-GYN in the first season. The note says to excuse your employee or student’s absence since they “will be too emotional to work” and they will need “to take the proper time to recover.” Mandy Moore told Jimmy Fallon that fans may “need a day off from work” due to the finale. She also revealed that she threw up after reading the script for the second to last episode that aired last week. But Mandy did add, “The finale is a little bit more of a hug. There’s a bit more levity. Yeah, the second to last destroyed me. I have a feeling it’ll destroy people, too.”
