Phil Collins hospitalized after fall, postpones London shows
Phil Collins has canceled a pair of shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London after he was hospitalized for cutting his head during a fall.

"We unfortunately have to announce that Phil Collins' performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London will be postponed tonight (June 8) and tomorrow (June 9)," the official Facebook page of the musician noted Thursday before offering an update on his condition.

"Phil suffers from 'drop foot' as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk. He rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair. He was taken to hospital where he had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye and is recovering well. He will be kept under observation for 24 hours," the statement continued.

"Phil sends his sincere apologies and thanks to fans. He has had a fantastic week at his first shows in 10 years, cannot thank people enough for their warm reaction and is excited to return."

The Royal Albert Hall shows are set to take place on Nov. 26 and Nov. 27. The singer will be returning to his Not Dead Yet tour for a pair of shows in Cologne and two more in Pairs. Collins will return to London for another show on June 30.

The Not Dead Yet tour have given fans a rare opportunity to see Collins who has remained sidelined due to his back injury.


Laura Prepon shows off baby bump at 'The Hero' premiere
Mom-to-be Laura Prepon showed off her baby bump on the red carpet Wednesday.

The 37-year-old actress attended the New York premiere of The Hero with fiancé Ben Foster while pregnant with their first child.

Prepon wore a casual off-shoulder polka dot top with black jeans and kitten heels. She cradled her growing belly as she posed for photos with Foster, director Brett Haley and co-star Sam Elliott.

Prepon and Foster got engaged in October after a whirlwind romance. The actress gushed about Foster at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival premiere of The Hero in January before word of her pregnancy broke.

"I'm happy. It's amazing. He's the love of my life," she told E! News.

"We might [elope] because we want a really small wedding, but we have a lot of people that we love and care about," the star added.

The Hero follows the relationship between Lee (Elliott), an aging Western icon, and Charlotte (Prepon), a stand-up comic. The movie co-stars Nick Offerman, Krysten Ritter and Katharine Ross, and opens in theaters Friday.

Katy Perry: Taylor Swift's attacks on 'my character' are 'so messed up'
Katy Perry says fellow singer Taylor Swift is trying to "assassinate" her character.

The 32-year-old pop star explained in an interview with NME published Friday why she addressed her longtime feud with Swift on "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden.

"No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two and the truth," Perry told the magazine.

"I mean, I'm not Buddha -- things irritate me," she said of calling out Swift. "I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That's so messed up!"

Perry confirmed on a Late Late Show "Carpool Karaoke" special in May that her beef with Swift began over backup dancers. She claimed Swift wrote the song "Bad Blood" after three dancers left Swift to work with her.

"I tried to talk to [Taylor] about it, and she wouldn't speak to me," the star said.

"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," she added. I was like, 'Okay. Cool, cool, cool. That's how you want to deal with it?'"

Perry previously denied her new song "Swish Swish" is a direct response to "Bad Blood," although she described the track as a "middle finger" in the NME interview. The song appears on her new album, Witness, which dropped Friday.


Robin Wright's 'Wonder Woman' character to return in 'Justice League'
Robin Wright's Wonder Woman character General Antiope is set to return in Justice League, the actress and her costar Connie Nielsen have confirmed.

Nielsen portrays the mother of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Amazon leader Queen Hippolyta alongside Wright as her sister and military leader of Themyscira.

"Of course the mother daughter relationship is always a beautiful but complex relationship. I think that there's more to explore," Gadot said while speaking with The Los Angeles Times alongside Wright and Nielsen.

"And [Wright and I] got to do more in Justice League as well. As sisters as well. Kind of [expletive] as well. We can't say much," added Nielsen, with Wright adding, "And more of the story, you get some of the history."

General Antiope will most likely appear in Justice League as part of a flashback sequence as Wright's character was killed in combat in Wonder Woman.

The first full-length trailer of Justice League offers a brief glimpse of a scene involving a large group of Amazons going to war against an unknown threat. Potentially, this is where Queen Hippolyta and General Antiope can reappear.

Justice League, which features Gadot teaming up with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), arrives in theaters Nov. 17.
