Listen to “Showbiz – Dec 10, 2021” on Spreaker.

 

Spoiler Alert — but not a COMPLETE spoiler alert….It’s ALL over the internet and you have to work hard to avoid knowing who I’m talking about, but in the “Sex and the City” revival “And Just Like That…” a major character dies after exercising on a Peloton bike. This is upsetting for SATC fans, but maybe even MORE upsetting to the people at Peloton! Yes, the company knew their workout bike would be featured in the movie. But no, they didn’t know a character would die after a sweaty session on the bike. Immediately, cardiologist Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum came out with a statement, insisting that working out on the bike would’ve helped DELAY this character’s heart attack, not contribute to it. But despite the doctor’s words, Peloton share prices fell by over 11 percent!

Ben Affleck is very much in love with Jennifer Lopez, and I suspect this may have something to do with Disney’s decision to pull his movie “Deep Water” from their schedule. It was on the set of “Deep Water” that Ben and his co-star Ana de Armas fell in love and had a very public romance. The movie was set to hit theaters on January 14, but Disney pulled the plug on that and has no plans to release the film in the near future.

Kanye and Drake settled their differences and came together to perform at huge benefit concert they hope will influence the powers that be to free convicted murderer Larry Hoover from prison. A ton of celebrities turned out to show their support. Kim Kardashian was there with her and Kanye’s two oldest kids, North and Saint. I didn’t see Kylie Jenner, but her ex boyfriend Tyga was there. Kendall Jenner was there with her boyfriend Devin Booker. Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox were also there, along with G Eazy, Lizzo, Chance the Rapper, Charlie Puth, Mike Tyson and more. But Kanye had more than freeing a convicted murderer on his mind. While performing his song “Runaway,” he added a verse directed at Kim, begging his estranged wife, “I need you to run right back to me. More specifically, Kimberly.”

A Chicago jury didn’t buy it. Jussie Smollett claims he was the victim of a racial and homophobic hate crime when he was attacked by two men wearing MAGA hats. The jury found Jussie guilty on 5 of 6 felony counts for making a false report to police. He was found not guilty for an interview with Chicago PD in which he told a detective he was a victim of aggravated burglary. But for the five charges he was found guilty, Jussie faces up to 20 years in prison. Of course, his attorney plans to appeal, saying Jussie is “100 percent confident that he’s goin to get cleared by the appellate court.”

In his first interview since his Astroworld Festival in Houston that left 10 people dead and hundreds more injured, Travis Scott told Charlamagne tha God that he is “1000 percent” sure he did everything he could to help dying audience members. Travis insists he didn’t hear his audience screaming for him to stop. He said, “Anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show. You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. I just go off the fans’ energy. But I just didn’t hear (screams).” In legal documents, Travis has denied responsibility for the deaths, but he told Charlamagne he does have a responsibility to figure out what happened and to find a solution so this doesn’t happen again.
