Idris Elba Brings Daugther Isan to 'Dark Tower' NYC Premiere, Plays 'Google Translate' Songs on 'Tonight Show'!

Idris Elba had a little fun with Jimmy Fallon during his appearance on The Tonight Show on Monday (July 31) in New York City.

The 44-year-old actor played a game with the 42-year-old host called “Google Translate Songs” where they sang some famous tracks like Sir Mix A Lot‘s “Baby Got Back” and Boyz II Men‘s “I’ll Make Love to You,” but translated the lyrics using Google – which doesn’t always give you the exact translation.

Idris was also joined by his co-stars Kathryn Winnick, Abbey Lee, Fran Kranz, Tom Taylor, Michael Barbieri, Eva Kaminsky, director Nikolaj Arcel, as well as Whoopi Goldberg and Dionne Warwick, who came out to show their support.

Aretha Franklin Slams Dionne Warwick Over Comments Made at Whitney Houston's Funeral

Aretha Franklin is finally speaking out against comments Dionne Warwick made about her back in 2012.

The 75-year-old entertainer sent a “lengthy fax” to the Associated Press on Monday (April 24) where she slammed Dionne for making up the story that she is Whitney Houston‘s godmother.

“She blatantly lied on me… fully well knowing what she was doing,” Aretha said. “At this point it isn’t about an apology, it’s about libel.”

While attending Whitney‘s funeral, Dionne – who is a cousin of the late singer – told those in attendance that Aretha was there and introduced her, but then realized she wasn’t present.

“Ree’s not here, but she is here,” Dionne said back in 2012. “She loves Whitney as if she were born to her. She is her godmother.”

Aretha could not attend Whitney‘s funeral due to swollen feet and a scheduled performance that she said she was contractually obligated to attend.

“We’ve never been friends and I don’t think that Dionne has ever liked me,” Aretha said.

Dionne‘s rep said, “She will not dignify a response to the statement made by Aretha Franklin.”

Dionne Warwick Says Lady Gaga Will Be in Her Biopic, Despite Rep's Statement

Dionne Warwick is continuing to claim that Lady Gaga will be in her biopic, despite Gaga‘s rep saying she is not attached to the project.

During the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the 75-year-old entertainer announced Gaga‘s involvement in the film but her reps denied these claims. Dionne is now fighting back.

“Actually, it’s just a little glitch. It will be corrected very soon, and everybody who retracted will have to retract again,” Dionne told Variety.

Dionne continued, “It wasn’t her that issued the statement. It was her PR people. It’s like everything else. The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. It becomes a problem. When they start talking to each other, it’s going to make a difference.”

Although Dionne said she hasn’t spoken to Gaga directly about the role, she has been in touch with her manager, saying “We finally have gotten texts and everything from everybody saying we’ll get it straightened out.”

Lady Gaga Not Starring in Dionne Warwick Biopic

Lady Gaga will not be starring in a biopic about singer Dionne Warwick‘s life, despite producers announcing her involvement in the project at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

The 30-year-old entertainer was reportedly set to play English singer Cilla Black, the “nemesis” of Warwick, who was in attendance to reveal the project on Friday (May 13).

Lady Gaga is not attached and will not appear in this project. Reports of Gaga starring in this project are false,” a rep for the singer told JustJared.com.

Sources told Variety that Gaga has not even heard of the project.

Whitney Houston's Cousin Dionne Warwick Pays Tribute to Bobbi Kristina Brown

The late Whitney Houston‘s cousin, R&B icon Dionne Warwick, has paid tribute to Bobbi Kristina Brown after her tragic death on Sunday (July 26).

“She was a sweetheart,” the 74-year-old Grammy winning singer said during her scheduled appearance on Watch What Happens Live! this evening. “She will be missed, that’s for sure. She was a good girl. She was a good little girl. She really was.”

Host Andy Cohen also asked how the family has coped with all the tragedy over the past several years.

“It’s not easy, that’s for sure,” Dionne added. “I think it’s because of our faith and strength in faith, knowing that Bobbi is now with a much, much bigger and more powerful person, or thing…than we’ll ever know. She’s in much better hands now.”

Dionne Warwick Hospitalized After Eerie Shower Accident

Dionne Warwick was hospitalized last week after falling in her shower at home.

The 74-year-old legendary singer slipped and fell in her shower at her South Orange, New Jersey home on January 24 and was taken by ambulance to the local hospital, according to TMZ.

Dionne underwent ankle surgery and was released Thursday.

If you didn’t know, Dionne is the cousin of Whitney Houston, who died three years ago in a bathtub. Her shower fall happened almost exactly one week before Bobbi Kristina Brown almost drowned in a bathtub over the weekend. All the connections here are so eerie.

We wish Dionne a speedy recovery and continue to keep Bobbi Kristina in our thoughts.
