Eminem claims ninth No. 1 album with 'Kamikaze'
Eminem's latest album Kamikaze has reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart after the surprise release of the album in August.

Kamikaze, which earned the fourth-largest sales for an album in 2018 with 434,000 equivalent units sold, is Eminem's ninth album to reach the top spot.

All of Eminem's solo albums since 2000's The Marshall Mather LP have topped the charts, tying him with Garth Brooks and The Rolling Stones in fifth place for most No. 1 albums behind the Beatles (19), Jay-Z (14), Bruce Springsteen and Barbara Streisand (11) and Elvis Presley (10).

Kamikaze also gave Eminem his largest streaming week ever and gave him his second No. 1 album in less than a year following the release of Revival in January.

The album, executive-produced by Dr. Dre and Eminem, features 13 tracks and special appearances by Joyner Lucas, Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg, Royce Da 5'9¨, and Jessie Reyez.

One track titled "Not Alike" featured Eminem taking aim at rapper Machine Gun Kelly, addressing comments Kelly made about his daughter Hailie being attractive. Kelly then responded with a diss track of his own titled "Rap Devil" which poked fun at Eminem's age, the quality of Eminem's albums and his belief that Eminem attempted to use manager Paul Rosenberg to hurt his career.


Jimmy Buffett licenses 'Coral Reefer' brand to medical cannabis company
Singer Jimmy Buffett is licensing the name of his Coral Reefer Band to a medicinal marijuana startup, the company announced Tuesday.

Buffett agreed to license the "Coral Reefer" brand to Georgia-based medical cannabis company, Surterra Wellness, to develop and market medical and therapeutic cannabis products and merchandise under the name, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

"Surterra shares our vision of creating a cannabis wellness lifestyle brand that improves the health of millions of people around the world," said Buffett's business partner and CEO of Coral Reefer, John Cohlan.

The products will be distributed exclusively at Surterra locations, the company said.

Surterra will market Coral Reefer products meant to improve appetite and mood, relieve pain and alleviate symptoms from chemotherapy, CEO Jake Bergmann said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The products will be available without a prescription in states where medical marijuana is legal.

Surterra also plans to provide details for expansion in Florida and other states early next year.

Last year, William Wrigley Jr., the billionaire former CEO of the Wrigley gum and candy company, joined Surterra as chairman after his family investment firm Wychwood Asset Management led a $65 million fundraising round. The company said it has raised total capital of more than $100 million since 2015.

"Jimmy and the Margaritaville team have built premium brands that are widely admired and recognized around the world," Wrigley said.

Buffett has licensed multiple brands including Margaritaville-branded restaurants, hotels, casinos and retirement communities.

Cohlan said Buffett will receive royalties as part of the licensing deal but will hold no stake in the startup.

"We have made a conscious decision to not go into the recreational business," Cohlan said.

Brigitte Nielsen 'very happy' after having daughter at 54
Brigitte Nielsen has "never been happier" after having a daughter at age 54 this year.

The 55-year-old Danish actress said on Monday's episode of Good Morning America that it was "incredible" to welcome a baby girl, Frida, with husband Mattia Desi in June.

"The best part of being a mom at my age is being my age," she told ABC News correspondent Kayna Whitworth. "I'm mature. I'm very, very happy. I've never been happier in my life."

Nielsen is also parent to four adult sons, Julian, Killian, Douglas and Raoul, with previous partners. She and Desi, 39, spent 10 years trying to have a child before ultimately conceiving Frida via in vitro fertilization.

"Frida will have an older, gorgeous, wonderful, mature mom, and she will have a fun, exciting, younger dad," Nielsen said. "So she got the best of both worlds."

"I really have to take care of myself," she added. "We've made a choice. Yes, I have to be realistic that in 15 years, she'll be 15 years old, I will be 70. I will look 50, honey, I better."

Nielsen previously told People it was "such a long road" to welcoming Frida.

"What I want women to know is that everything is possible, but you have to be realistic," she said.

"If you don't want to use [donor] eggs, you have to preserve your own eggs at a reasonable age for there to be a possibility," she advised.

Nielsen is known for the films Red Sonja, Rocky IV and Beverly Hills Cop II. She was married to Kasper Winding, Sylvester Stallone, Sebastian Copeland and Raoul Meyer prior to her marriage to Desi.


Sterling K. Brown supports Olivia Munn after 'Predator' controversy
Sterling K. Brown is showing his support for Olivia Munn following The Predator casting controversy.

The 42-year-old actor spoke out Saturday on Twitter after Munn said she was ostracized after blowing the whistle on a registered sex offender who had an acting role in the film.

"I'm sorry you're feeling so isolated, my dear. And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak up publicly. I was not at #TIFF so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you," Brown wrote.

There are two main issues as far as I see it. First, what is and is not forgivable? That's gonna vary from individual to individual. You and @BonafideBlack may differ when it comes to that issue," he added, referencing The Predator director Shane Black.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday Munn successfully lobbied 20th Century Fox to cut a scene featuring Steven Wilder Striegel, an actor and longtime friend of Black's, after learning Striegel was a sex offender.

"What I take issue with, (& I believe Shane addressed this in his apology), is that we all have the right to know who we're working with!" Brown said.

"Our studio was not given that opportunity, and neither was our cast. Especially @oliviamunn who was the only member of the principal cast who had to work with him. I so appreciate that you 'didn't leave well enough alone,' & again, I'm sorry you feel isolated in taking action," he added.

Munn spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto International Film Festival Saturday after several of her co-stars backed out of scheduled interviews.

"Well, I haven't heard from Shane. I did see his apology that he put out. I appreciate the apology," the actress said. "I would have appreciated it more if it was directed toward me privately before it went public and I had to see it online with everyone else."

"It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast," she added.

The Predator co-stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key and Jacob Tremblay, and opens in theaters Friday.


??? Guess Who ???

Which supermodel ignored Drake when he texted to ask her out?

Heidi Klum says she ignored music superstar Drake when he texted to ask her out.

The 45-year-old model and television personality explained on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she never responded because she had just met her now-boyfriend, Tom Kaulitz.

"You snooze, you lose. He was basically, like, a week too late," Klum told host Ellen DeGeneres.

"Someone who I know knows him and he asked to have my number and then he texted me," she recounted. "I was like 'Oh my gosh, this is so weird!' but then I never texted him back because I found the love of my life."

Klum said she thought it was better to not respond than say no.

"Like, what do you say? You want to go out? And I'm like, no. It's better not to say anything," she said. "I'm embarrassed about it."

Klum met Kaulitz at a friend's birthday party in February the night of her previous appearance on Ellen.

"That was the day when actually I didn't want to go out at all," the star recalled. "I came home at night and it was my friend's birthday and he said, please come. So I got ready again and put my heels on and went to the birthday party and there [Kaulitz] was."

"It was to the point so bad that I couldn't even look at him. You know when you're immediately attracted to someone where you're like, oh my gosh, I can't look at him," she said.

Klum and Kaulitz made their red carpet debut as a couple at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala during the Cannes International Film Festival in May. The model shared a kiss photo with Kaulitz on Sunday.

"I miss you," she wrote in German.

Klum and Project Runway co-star Tim Gunn announced last week they are leaving the show for a new Amazon series. The pair will develop, produce and star in the new fashion reality show.
