Why Madonna Is Being Investigated By The Secret Service

Madonna

Madonna made statements about "blowing up the White House," and yes the Secret Service is investigating.

According to Page Six, the comments were delivered at the Women's March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

Madonna later tried to clarify her statements on Instagram:

Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ?️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn't solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love. It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting "we choose love". πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ?οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ?οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ?οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ?οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #revoltutionoflove?️#revolutionoflove?️*******************************************************

Patriots And Falcons Join Lady Gaga At Super Bowl LI

Tom Brady
Now that I typed that headline I hope it wasn't misleading. Tom Brady won't be performing with Lady Gaga at the Superbowl.

The Patriots crushed the Steelers and the Falcons destroyed the Packers to make it to the big game. The conference championship games were kind of a snooze (unless your team won).

Super Bowl LI will be in Houston on February 5th.

'The Walking Dead' Takes Down Star Trek

Actress Sonequa Martin-Green
Does Hollywood think we are stupid? Wait, don't answer that.

CBS's new Star Trek Discovery premiere has been delayed again, this time because of The Walking Dead.

Follow me on this...

Entertainment Weekly is reporting the delay on the show, which starts production next week, is all about potential viewer confusion. The Walking Dead is running its season through April, and CBS doesn't want people to confuse lead actor Sonequa Martin-Green's character in Star Trek Discovery with her role as Sasha on the zombie show.

Really? One is zombies the other is space - we got it.

Guys, when you don't have a firm premiere date, it makes us think the show is TERRIBLE.

See Ariana Grande's Spectacular #InstagramFail

Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande has been accused of being out of touch with the general public, including her fan base. This Instagram post didn't help:


There was quite the backlash after naming her self the hardest working 23-year-old on the planet. Is she working hard? Of course! I've been around enough celebrities to know that even though they travel in limos and planes, they are still working hard. Often they sleep on buses. Other times they go to bed at 2am, then wake up at 4am to do morning interviews. Often they don't really get days off. All that being said, I'm sure she is FAR from the hardest working 23-year-old on earth.

PS - Ariana, if you are that tired, you can always quit and never have to work again.
