James Bond actor Roger Moore dead at 89
James Bond actor Roger Moore died Tuesday at age 89.

The British star, who played 007 in seven films, died in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer, Moore's children said on his social media accounts.

"It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer," Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian Moore wrote.

"The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone," the trio added. "Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people."

Moore shared Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian with his third wife, Italian actress Luisa Mattoli. He is also survived by wife Kristina Tholstrup, whom he married in 2002.

"Our thoughts must now turn to supporting Kristina at this difficult time, and in accordance with our father's wishes there will be a private funeral in Monaco," the actor's children said.

Moore first played James Bond in Live and Let Die (1973), and last portrayed the character in A View to Kill (1985). He later appeared in The Man Who Wouldn't Die, Spice World and Boat Trip, and was also known for his humanitarian work with UNICEF.


Zack Snyder departs 'Justice League' due to family tragedy
Director Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, are stepping down from Justice League following the death of their daughter.

Zack Snyder made the announcement Monday that he will be unable to finish work on the superhero ensemble film in order to focus on the healing of their family.

The Snyder's daughter Autumn committed suicide in March at the age of 20. The filmmaker who kept the matter private, initially wanted to continue work on Justice League as the project was put on hold so that the family could deal with the tragedy.

"In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it," Snyder said while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter. "The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I've come to the realization ... I've decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I'm having a hard time."

Warner Bros. wanted to delay the film which stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg), but Snyder wanted Justice League to reach its planned Nov. 17 release date.

Stepping in for Snyder will be Joss Whedon who directed Disney and Marvel's Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron to lead Justice League through post-production and to direct some additional scenes.

"The directing is minimal and it has to adhere to the style and tone and the template that Zack set," Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich said of Whedon's involvement. "We're not introducing any new characters. It's the same characters in some new scenes. He's handing the baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, we'll still end up with a great movie."

Whedon was brought into the DC comics and Warner Bros. fold after he signed on to helm an upcoming Batgirl film in March.

"Here's the thing, I never planned to make this public," Snyder said. "I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take a break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They'll do what they do. The truth is ... I'm past caring about that kind of thing now."

"I want the movie to be amazing, and I'm a fan, but that all pales pretty quickly in comparison," he says. "I know the fans are going to be worried about the movie, but there are seven other kids that need me. In the end, it's just a movie. It's a great movie. But it's just a movie," he continued.

The Snyders are raising seven kids and step-kids together.

The 51-year-old had previously helmed Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alongside Deborah as a producer. The couple also produced Wonder Woman directed by Patty Jenkins that arrives in theaters June 2.

"You have created so much that will last forever. Wonderful things.

Your values are left in your movies , your friends and most of all your special beautiful family. The love you have for people, kindness and selflessness are your legacy to us. Thank you Zack. Love you always," Gal Gadot wrote on Instagram Monday alongside a photo of herself on set with the director.

"Our hearts are with the Snyder's and have been. Truly good people and friends to so many. xoxo," added Patty Jenkins on Twitter.

Katy Perry addresses Taylor Swift feud: 'She started it'
Katy Perry is opening up about her feud with fellow singer Taylor Swift.

The 32-year-old singer confirmed Monday on The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke special that her bad blood with Swift began over backup dancers.

"It's about backing dancers," Perry told host James Corden, explaining that three of her backup dancers asked to work with Swift while she wasn't touring. "I was like, 'Yeah, of course! ... But I will be on a record cycle in about a year, so be sure to put a 30-day contingency in your contract so you can get out if you want to join me when I say I'm going back on.'"

"So that year came up, right? And I texted all of them, because I'm very close with them, and I said, 'Look, just FYI, I'm about to start,'" she recalled. "And they said, 'Alright, we're going to talk to management about it.' And they did. And they got fired. And I tried to talk to [Taylor] about it, and she wouldn't speak to me."

"I do the right thing anytime that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me," the star said of Swift's single "Bad Blood." "I was like, 'Okay. Cool, cool, cool. That's how you want to deal with it?'"

Perry's conflict with Swift began in 2014 when Swift hinted to Rolling Stone that "Bad Blood" is about Perry. Perry told Corden that Swift "started" the feud, but said she's willing to "take the beef off the grill."

"I think personally that women together, not divided -- and none of this petty [expletive] -- women together will heal the world," the singer said.

Perry appeared to respond to "Bad Blood" last week with her new song "Swish Swish" featuring Nicki Minaj. Orange is the New Black alum Ruby Rose defended Swift by slamming the song and Perry on Twitter.

Which popstar went topless for Naomi Campbell's birthday?

Lady Gaga went topless Monday to celebrate Naomi Campbell's birthday.

The 31-year-old singer wished her American Horror Story: Hotel co-star a happy 47th birthday by sharing a topless photo of herself cooking.

"#HappyBirthdayNaomi @iamnaomicampbell," she captioned the picture.

Lady Gaga and Campbell played The Countess and Claudia Bankson, respectively, on American Horror Story: Hotel. Campbell had named the singer as one of her style icons in an interview with People in 2010.

"I think my style icons are people that reinvent themselves -- they come back with a different look, a different vibe, a different sound," the model said. "[Lady Gaga is] definitely a big style icon for everyone, and it's made everyone go a bit more edgy with their fashion."

"I think Lady Gaga is extremely talented -- she is a composer, a pianist, she's an opera singer and she does classical music too," she added.

Lady Gaga released the album Joanne in October, and will star in a forthcoming Star is Born remake with Bradley Cooper. Campbell last played Rose Crane on the Fox series Star this year.
