Madonna, 63, shows off her VERY smooth visage as she attends the Davis vs Romero fight with son David Banda, 16

Madonna looked very smooth-faced as she attended the Davis vs Romero fight event for the WBA World Lightweight Championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday.

The singer, 63, hid her eyes behind a pair of pink sunglasses and wore a black Balenciaga jacket to the fight.

She accessorised with several silver necklaces, and styled her blonde tresses poker straight.

The hitmaker was accompanied by her 16-year-old son David Banda, who cut a stylish figure in a red v-neck top.

Madonna’s outing comes as she was banned from going live on Instagram after continually breaking the app’s rules with her nude posts, last week.

The singer expressed her outrage after discovering she was unable to broadcast live to her 18 million followers for ‘going against Community Guidelines’ on the app, with a later message reminding users not to ‘spam’ or ‘post nudity’.

Sharing a video of the moment she learnt that she had been blocked, Madonna declared ‘I’ve never worn so many clothes in my life’, although she has previously had risqué content removed by the app.

She captioned the clip: ‘Not Us!!!! violation of community guidelines……….’

In a video on her Stories, Madonna questioned if her post on NFT videos last week could be blame, as they featured graphic digital scans of her own vagina, as well as naked depictions of herself giving birth to trees, butterflies, and robotic centipedes.

Oh dear: Madonna’s outing comes as she was banned from going live on Instagram after continually breaking the app’s rules with her nude posts, last week

After saying she was ‘speechless’, Madonna mused: ‘It’s weird, they’re being really mysterious about why, they’re not giving me a reason. It’s like a bureaucracy inside a computer.

‘I haven’t done anything lately, nothing crazy this week anyways… it may be a delayed reaction from my NFTs last week.

‘I’m sorry to let everyone down, I was looking forward to this. I pledge allegiance to the censorship people.’

Madonna was subject to online ridicule after she shared her graphic NFT videos on her social media platforms.

Madonna teamed up with digital artist, graphic designer, and animator Beeple (whose real name is Michael Joseph Winkelmann) to make the three NFT videos – also known as non-fungible tokens – which leave very little to imagination.

Among the most graphic aspects of the clips are the close-up shots of the Like a Virgin singer’s vagina, which were created using scans of the singer’s own genitals – and which sparked the most controversy and outrage on social media.

The videos cannot be seen on her Instagram page currently, but it is unclear if they were removed by herself or Instagram.

Soap Opera Veteran Kristen Alderson Celebrates Her Birthday

Fans of Kristen Alderson have certainly had something to celebrate – namely the fact that she has been featured so prominently in two of General Hospitals’ latest offerings – and the actress herself has a major reason to be festive.

Happy Birthday, Kristen Alderson

That’s because the actress was born on May 29, 1991, in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, which means that this talented performer is turning 31 years old today! Alderson was six when she successfully auditioned for the part of One Life to Live’s Starr Manning.

As Starr, she was allowed to grow up on the show (along with brother, Eddie) and took her from a precocious little girl to a young mother who lost her child. She also took her from one soap to another.

During her tenure at the soap, Alderson also appeared in television commercials for JC Penny, Citgo, and the Soap Network. When OLTL was abruptly canceled in 2011, Alderson was one of several actors who reprised their respective parts on sister series General Hospital.

When a subsequent lawsuit resulted in the removal of the OTLT characters, Alderson temporarily exited GH before returning to play Lauren Katherine “Kiki” Jerome, a newly-created character tied to the Jerome family. She remained in the role until February 2015, at which point the character was recast with former The Young and the Restless star Hayley Erin.

Alderson’s other acting credits include Melange, a pilot for a new nighttime soap, and The Marvelous Wonderettes, an off-Broadway comedy musical. In 2013, Alderson was awarded a Daytime Emmy statuette (for Outstanding Younger Actress) for her work as Starr.

Soap Hub would like to wish Kristen Alderson a very happy birthday and you can too by clicking on the Twitter link below. General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.

Kelly Osbourne Celebrates One Year of Sobriety: ‘Life Is Truly Amazing’

Kelly Osbourne is expressing gratitude after being sober for one year.

The 37-year-old television personality, who is the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, took to social media on Friday (May 27) to share a heartfelt message on the first anniversary of her sobriety. The announcement follows news that the Osbournes star is pregnant with her first child.

“What a difference a year can make!” she wrote alongside a “Twelve Steps” image on Instagram. “If you would have told me 365 days ago that I would be sober, happy, and about to be a mumma I would have laughed in your face.”

Osbourne continued, “Life is truly amazing when you do the work. Thank you to everyone that has supported me on this journey. I love you all so much!!!!!!!”

Last year, she opened up about her battles with drug and alcohol addiction during an episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch. Osbourne discussed ending nearly four years of sobriety amid the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2021.

“I was alone, sitting by a pool and waiting for somebody to come have a meeting with me. And I saw this woman and her husband had a glass of champagne. It looked really nice and I was like, ‘I can do that, too,’” she recalled. “And the next day, I had two glasses. And the day after that, it was bottles.”

Earlier this month, Osbourne — who has two albums on the Billboard 200 — announced on Instagram that she’s expecting her first child with Slipknot turntablist Sid Wilson.

“I know that I have been very quiet these past few months so I thought I would share with you all as to why… I am over the moon to announce that I am going to be a Mumma,” she captioned a picture set of her holding her ultrasounds photos. “To say that I am happy does not quite cut it. I am ecstatic!”

Johnny Depp’s Slow Burnout | HuffPost Entertainment

Johnny Depp’s attorneys say that in publishing her Washington Post editorial on domestic abuse, Amber Heard took the good, clean name of a fine actor and ground it into the dirt. The Post editorial did not name Depp, but readers who knew the troubled couple’s history could easily connect the dots, as Heard had obtained a temporary restraining order against Depp at the conclusion of their brief marriage, in 2016.

“I never said to him, ‘You’re a difficult client,’” his former agent Tracey Jacobs said in videotaped deposition showed in court Thursday. “I never used those words. But I was very honest. I said, ‘You’ve got to stop doing this. It’s hurting you.’”

This past week of testimony, led by Heard’s team, was heavy on ex-friends and industry insiders who knew the couple, or who had previously worked closely with Depp, building on past testimony that treated Depp’s substance abuse as fact ― the only room for debate seemed to be just how much maleffect it had.

“I got him a therapist, but never tried an intervention or nothing like that. We would just talk about it, and he’d be like, ‘Oh, yeah, I’ll be all right, I’ll be all right,’” he said. In Witkin’s telling, Depp’s sister Christi was “always concerned with his well-being, whether it was the substance abuse or not.”

Heard testified that she had seen Depp take all manner of drugs: speed, opiates, Adderall, cocaine, quaaludes, MDMA, marijuana and, of course, alcohol. One of his tattoos reads “Wino Forever.” Depp has a particular fondness for reds, according to witnesses. Some, including Heard’s sister, Whitney Henriquez, testified that they had taken drugs with the actor in the past.

“Pills fine. Booze, my capacity is too large and I won’t stop. Ugly and sad. Oh, how I love it,” he wrote in one text message to a friend. In another message, sent during a period of sobriety, Depp told Heard’s mother that her daughter helped him get through “a hell of my own doing.”

Heard alleged that Depp’s team helped to cover up his misconduct. Security personnel would ignore him when, she alleged, he yelled at or smacked her, and they would change him out of soiled clothing when he passed out.

Among the witnesses called by Depp’s legal team was his current bodyguard, Malcolm Connolly, who testified that Heard liked to “wear the pants” in her relationship with her famous husband and “could get frosty at the drop of a hat.” Connolly admitted he was very loyal to his boss.

The question of Depp’s finances has presented itself in different ways at the trial. His lawyers called his current business manager to testify as to the millions Heard demanded in the couple’s divorce settlement, while her lawyers called Depp’s former business manager, Joel Mandel ― the one he sued for supposedly defrauding him. The case settled in 2018, but not before evidence came to light showing how Depp had been in dire financial straights since at least 2009. One email from that year showed how Depp had offered to sell some of his properties and other belongings to meet financial obligations until he could cash the checks from then-upcoming film projects, which promised him “20 mil,” “35 mil” and “another 20 mil,” in his words.

“Initially, crews loved him because he was always so great with the crew. But crews don’t love sitting around for hours and hours and hours waiting for the star of the movie to show up,” Jacobs said. “And it also got around town,” she added. “I mean, people talk. It’s a small community.”

During his time on the stand, Depp gave the jury a primer on his psychology. He spoke at length in his calm drawl about what he described as a verbally and physically abusive upbringing where he and his sister “tried to stay out of the line of fire,” Depp said, describing an environment where he would regularly watch his mother attack his father, who did not react. He compared his relationship with his mother to his relationship with Heard, saying that he used drugs in similar ways to deal with the temperamental nature of each relationship.

It wasn’t that long ago that another celebrity courtroom drama showed how the entertainment industry can enable abuse ― albeit in reverse. In the case of Britney Spears, whose father controlled a legal arrangement requiring her to get express permission to make many of her own life decisions, everyone told her “no.” In Depp’s case, apparently no one did. For both stars, an amorphous group of professionals ― people who ostensibly put the celebrity’s best interests first but also draw their collective salary from that individual’s success ― made sure the gears kept grinding onward. Spears put on shows, Depp starred in films. The entertainment machine went brrrrr. Until it didn’t.

Amber Heard is both ‘the mom and the dad’ to baby girl Oonagh Paige | Fox News

Criminal defense attorney Jonna Spilbor reacts to Amber Heard’s testimony as the Johnny Depp defamation trial nears the end

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Amber Heard announced on Instagram in July 2021 that she had secretly welcomed baby girl Oonagh Paige Heard via surrogate to whom she’s both “the mom and the dad.”

A photo accompanying the news shows Heard lying down on a white bed with Oonagh curled up asleep on her chest.

“Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child,” she wrote July 1 of last year. “I wanted to do it on my own terms. I now appreciate how radical it is for us as women to think about one of the most fundamental parts of our destinies in this way. I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib.” 

“I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib,” Amber Heard wrote on Instagram after announcing the birth of her daughter via surrogate

She said her daughter was born on April 8, 2021. In another Instagram post, Heard holds her daughter as they both stare at a computer screen. “I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss,” she wrote July 21, 2021. 

Another photo shows her doing curls with her left arm while holding Oonagh in her right with the caption, “Multitasking mama.”

Oonagh turned one three days before Heard had to show up to Fairfax County Circuit Court, in Virginia, for the start of Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against her. 

“My little O is a year old today,” she wrote April 8 next to a picture of her and her daughter on the floor playing with pink balloons. “I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year.”

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million in Fairfax County Circuit Court, in Virginia, for referring to herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 op-ed published in the Washington Post.

He said the piece, that did not identify him by name, ruined his reputation and career. Heard is countersuing for $100 million, accusing Depp and his lawyer of defaming her by calling her allegations a “hoax.”

During her testimony, she mentioned her daughter more than once. “I want to move on with my life. I have a baby. I have to move on. I want to move on, and I want Johnny to move on too,” she told jurors.

Oonagh ‘s middle name may be in honor of Heard’s mom, Paige Heard, who passed away in May 2020. The name Oonagh is of Irish origin and means lamb.

Friends told Page Six that Heard used a surrogate because she’s unable to carry her own child, and that the “Aquaman” actress is proud to be Oonagh’s sole legal parent.

She hasn’t disclosed the identity of the child’s father or sperm donor – but there has been wild speculation online that her ex-boyfriend, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, could be the baby’s father.

An ex-friend of Heard’s sister, Whitney Henriquez Heard, wrote a declaration that was filed by Depp’s team as part of the defamation case but hasn’t been introduced as evidence.

 Jennifer Howell said that she had chatted with Heard’s late mom while visiting Henriquez. “Paige told me that Amber said Elon was controlling, abusive and that she was in a legal battle with him over the rights to embryos that they had created together,” she wrote in the court filing. 

Depp accused Heard of cheating on him with Musk during their marriage – an allegation that she and the SpaceX founder have denied. A spokesperson for Musk didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

Bethenny Frankel calls Amber Heard ‘craziest woman’ on Earth

Bethenny Frankel thinks Amber Heard is “the craziest woman that’s walked this planet.”

The sharp-tongued “Real Housewives of New York City” alum made the loaded statement on Thursday’s episode of her “Just B with Bethenny Frankel” podcast while weighing in on the actress’ ongoing defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

“Johnny Depp looks like a hero only in a relationship with Amber Heard,” Frankel, 51, said, joking that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star “is gonna be f–king anointed Gandhi and the pope” when all is said and done “because he was in a relationship with the craziest woman that’s walked this planet.”

The businesswoman and philanthropist went on, “I’m sure Queen Elizabeth is calling him being like, ‘Come here, I wanna give you a knighthood because you’re now the hero in this crazy villain story.’

“It doesn’t make any sense. Johnny Depp plus anyone besides Amber Heard is a raving, [MDMA], cocaine, s–t-in-bed-tolerating man.

“But here, he looks …” she continued, loudly breaking out into a Mariah Carey song, “‘and then a hero comes along!’ because Amber Heard is who he’s being compared to.”

Frankel ended her rant by shouting, “Put me next to Shrek! … I’ll be co-hosting the Met [Gala] next year with Anna Wintour!”

Depp, 58, has been battling it out with the “Aquaman” star, 36, since April 11 over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence.

Although she did not mention the “Edward Scissorhands” star by name, he alleged the piece tarnished his reputation and career.

Shocking allegations about the pair’s tumultuous marriage — which lasted from 2015 to 2017 — have been made in court, including Depp’s claims that Heard once defecated on his bed and severed his finger.

Heard, by contrast, has accused Depp of routinely beating her — many times while drunk or high — and sexually assaulting her with a liquor bottle.

Both parties have denied the claims.

Depp’s fans have staunchly defended him throughout the trial, while detractors have used Heard’s alleged borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder diagnoses to undermine her credibility.

Tears For Fears Concert Review: 2022 Tour Kick-Off

Addressing the crowd on Friday (May 20th), the first night of their amphitheater tour with Garbage at Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center, Tears for Fears founding member Roland Orzabal pinpointed the band’s mood as “chuffed,” as in “deeply satisfied in a particularly British manner.” The band had brought out “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” three songs into their set, sounding just as pristine and cathartic now as it did when first recorded nearly 40 years ago.

Conventional wisdom might be to save such an iconic hit for the latter half of the set or the encore. But Tears for Fears are not a mere legacy act capitalizing on Gen X-er nostalgia. You can identify the most popular songs by how many people start recording on their phones. But deeper cuts, like epic multi-parter “Bad Man’s Song,” were equally impactful. And the transitions from one song to another were so smooth that the audience had barely enough time to applaud for one before another was underway.

The sense of excitement emanating from Orzabal, co-founder Curt Smith, and the rest of the band was understandable on multiple levels. It was the first night of their first tour since 2019, and their first American tour since 2017 (get tickets here). Then there was the fact that they released their first album of new material in almost two decades earlier this year, the excellent The Tipping Point. And finally, if there was ever a time to “shout” and “let it all out,” it’s now, for better or worse.

At-home listenings of Tears for Fears are rewarding enough. Experienced live, these songs become all the richer, enhanced by moments human (Orzabal’s ad-libs during “Sowing the Seeds of Love”) and more serendipitous (a delicate wind as he sings of how “the breeze blows gently” on “Bad Man’s Song”).

Speaking with Consequence recently, the duo said this set would be their “best one yet.” Maybe someone who saw them tour Songs from the Big Chair in 1985 would disagree. But this wasn’t a “well, at least you got to see them live’” performance; it was impressive without grading on any kind of curve.

Woman Announces in Middle of Courtroom Johnny Depp is Father of Her Baby

 Johnny Depp secretly fathered a lovechild, according to one random woman at his defamation trial against Amber Heard on Monday — which she later admitted “was a joke.”

The court was interrupted when the mother watching from the gallery stood up — with a baby in her arms — and announced that Depp was the father.

The bizarre incident occurred during the morning break, when the cameras were switched off, so it was not broadcast.

But Law & Crime’s Angenette Levy watched it happen first hand, describing it as “crazy”.

“All of a sudden, this woman… she stands up at the back of the courtroom with her baby, and she says ‘Johnny I love you, our souls are connected.'”

Depp turned and waved to the woman, but — according to the woman herself — she wasn’t just some random fan.

“She held up the baby and said: ‘This baby is yours.”

Deputies in the courtroom made a beeline for the unannounced witness.

“The deputy was like ‘You’re outta here,'” Levy reported.

The woman was removed from the court, and had her access wristband clipped off.

“It was pretty wild,” Levy said. “It was a moment.”

Law & Crime’s flabbergasted anchor was full of questions, but only had time for the most pressing before court resumed.

“Was she waiting with the baby at 1AM to get into the courtroom? If so, that’s a bigger issue.”

The woman, meanwhile, was casually standing with her baby stroller in the background outside the courtroom the whole time.

After later tracking her down, the woman told Law & Crime that she had discussed the plan with her husband, and that “they thought it was a joke, and thought it would be funny.”

“Just FYI everybody,” Levy clarified, “Johnny Depp does not have a third baby out there that was at the courthouse today.”

The baby, she confirmed, had no comment.

The trial continues.
