Listen to “Showbiz – Nov 15, 2021” on Spreaker.


“Eternals” remains the number one movie in its second week of release, taking in another $27.5M. is still on top! Coming in second was the new “Clifford the Big Red Dog” with $16.4M, followed by “Dune” with another $5.5M. Rounding out the top five were “No Time To Die” with $4.6M and, nipping at its heels, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” with $4M.

Taylor Lautner and his longtime girlfriend Tay Dome are engaged. He posted a couple pictures from the proposal, captioning them, “11.11.2021. And just like that, all of my wishes came true.” His new fiancée shared the same photos, captioning hers, “my absolute best friend. I CANNOT WAIT TO SPEND FOREVER WITH YOU.” On her Instagram, Tay’s bio says she’s a registered nurse and a self care and mental health advocate.

Taylor Swift was the musical guest on SNL this weekend which means 9 out of 10 people won’t be able to tell you who hosted. (It was Jonathan Majors.) And Taylor let loose with all 10 minutes of “All Too Well” from “Red (Taylor’s Version).” To celebrate the occasion, a lot of Taylor’s most famous friends showed up for the after-party, including her ex Joe Jonas and his wife Sophie Turner, as well as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Taylor’s longtime boyfriend and maybe fiancé Joe Alwyn couldn’t make it because he’s busy filming in Panama.

The death toll from Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival has risen to 10. Nine-year-old Ezra Blount had been in a medically-induced coma since the Nov. 5 concert, but he has now passed away. Ezra’s dad told reporters that he purposely stayed toward the back of the crowd, thinking that would be safer. Ezra was on his father’s shoulders when the crowd began to crush together. Dad passed out and Ezra ended up being trampled. As of Friday, 108 lawsuits have been filed, and one attorney says he has at least 90 more ready to go. Travis reportedly has not left his house in Houston since this happened. A source told TMZ, “The fact that it did happen to Houston which he loves and he has so many people there he’s close to … it’s particularly devastating. He’s been at his house locked away since this happened and not coming out at all.” Side note — When it was released on Aug. 3, 2018, “Astroworld” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving Travis his first number one album. Before the Astroworld Festival tragedy on Nov. 5, that album was sitting at No. 50, but since then, it has climbed to No. 38. Hits Daily Double also reports that the album has been streamed at least 17M times since then. With this tour, Travis was also promoting his upcoming fifth studio album, “Utopia.” On the day of the festival, he released two new songs from that album, “Mafia” and “Escape Plan.” As of now, we don’t have a release date on the album.

Change that hashtag to #FreedBritney! After 13 years, a judge finally freed Britney Spears from her conservatorship on Friday! And, just as Britney had requested, no mental evaluation was required. Britney wasn’t there for the hearing, but she posted a video of her fans celebrating outside the courthouse, captioning it, “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy 🥺❤ !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen 🙏🏼☀🙌🏼 ???? #FreedBritney.”
