    • FANS REACT TO EMMA WATSON RETIREMENT RUMORS

      Emma Watson has devastated her fans with the rumors that she is retiring at age 30 from acting. She rose to fame as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, and has also starred in films including Beauty and the Beast (2017) and Little Women (2019).

      Watson's agent told The Daily Mail that she is "dormant" from her career and won't be taking on any new projects. She is rumored to be engaged to Leo Robinton, and reportedly plans to spend more time with him.

      Watson refused to support her most recent role in Greta Gerwig's Little Women with press appearances with fellow stars Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet and Meryl Streep. No word on what happened.

      Some fans supported her decision. "Emma Watson has given us some of the most iconic roles," wrote one Twitter user. "I'm wishing her all the best for the future. she deserves this."

      But others weren't as chill. "Emma Watson retiring is something very personal to me," wrote another. "No I will not be getting over this."

    • GOLDEN GLOBES: HOW TO WATCH AND WHAT TO KNOW

      Awards season is bowing on Sunday. After multiple delays and unconventional format planned, the 78th Golden Globe Awards kick off the party live via a virtual show Sunday night (NBC, 8 EST/5 PST) hosted by Amy Poehler in LA and Tina Fey in New York.

      Industry observers will be watching closely to see if Oscar front-runners emerge in this strange COVID-tinged awards season.

      "Mank" (which leads with six total nominations), "Nomadland" and "Promising Young Woman" are considered the three to watch. Because theaters have largely been shuttered for 11 months, Netflix snagged 42 nominations.

      While celebrity presenters will appear live on both coasts, nominees will appear from home. Amanda Seyfried, nominated for her role as supporting actress in "Mank," told USA Today that she'll be watching at home from her couch with her family, including a newborn son. "Throughout the night I will absolutely have to feed my young son," said Seyfried. "But I'm going to be with them all, including my dog."

      Presenters include Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Awkwafina, Cynthia Erivo, Joaquin Phoenix, Kristen Wiig, Renee Zellweger, Annie Mumolo, Kenan Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, Anthony Anderson, Kate Hudson and Margot Robbie.

      Strangely, there will still be pre-show red carpet, which is expected to include virtual nominee interviews, awards punditry and red carpet history instead of the usual pose and pout. Watch on Twitter @GoldenGlobes.

      Cord-cutters can stream on the Roku Channel, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, AT&T TV, Sling TV, and Fubo TV.

    • COLUMBUS SHORT SAYS BRITNEY SPEARS' PARENTS CALLED HIM THE N-WORD DURING THEIR FLING

      Columbus Short has revealed that during his 2003 fling with Britney Spears, he overheard her parents refer to him as the n-word. As previously reported, the Scandal star worked as a backup dancer and producer years back. According to his 2020 autobiography entitled Short Stories, he revealed that he and Britney slept together after she came on to him during a trip to Rome.

      Short said he only slept with Spears once and afterwards, he heard her parents refer to him as a racial slur. He wrote in his book, "I was next to Britney while she was on the phone with them crying while she had it on speaker." He said that he then heard her parents ask "Why are you f*cking that n*gger?" Short said that afterwards, "Britney looked at me so apologetically, knowing I'd heard it. I shook my head and didn't say anything, because what was there to say?"

      During an interview with Inside Hollywood, Short said that he wasn't surprised about the incident. He explained, "I wasn't shocked when it happened — look where they're from. They're from Louisiana. Just because they're in Hollywood or just because now they have black bodyguards doesn't mean that behind closed doors they don't use that word. I think that was a common thing, and the way it came out was so effortless — like that's how they speak. I wasn't shocked, and I wasn't hurt by it, I was just like, ‘Wow, this is — wow. Okay, I know who I am around here.' It was a very interesting thing."

      He continued, "After that, I felt like maybe Britney was using me to piss them off for some reason. I'm just saying that but I don't know. I think maybe I thought that for a second, but I think she is a really sweet person that was tormented — in a position on a high level that I can't imagine. I liken it to Princess Diana. She was the pop princess of the world. Britney couldn't go nowhere — her world was completely controlled in this bubble. There would be times that she would act out, and I don't blame her. She was trying to find something — trying to find her way."

    • FURY OVER PRINCE ANDREW KEEPING ROYAL ROLES WHILE MEGHAN AND HARRY ARE OUT

      The Queen's decision to cut Prince Harry and Meghan Markle off from their royal patronages is drawing criticism, and not just from the patronages themselves. While several of the nonprofits expressed surprise and disappointment at the Queen's decision last week, now other critics are pointing to the fact that Prince Andrew, who has been wanted for questioning by the FBI for his connection to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has been able to hang onto some of his military connections.

      Andrew has stepped away from public royal duties, but has been allowed to maintain military honors such as Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm and Colonel-in-Chief of multiple British Army units. Harry, meanwhile, has had to give up his honors, which include being Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of RAF Base Honington and Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands' Small Ships and Diving.

      Royal commenter Roberta Fiorito said: "The Sussexes just bring so much to the Royal Family. I think if there was an arrangement to be made, it would really bolster the Firm and the monarchy."

      Meanwhile, Harry hopes to attend the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which is causing a "headache" for the Palace, insiders say. An insider asked The Sun: "Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast. This is a celebration for the Queen's 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed. There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan."

      Thankfully, there's time: the event is set for June 2-5, 2022.

    • KIM NEVER TRIED TO KEEP KIDS FROM KANYE

      Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may be splitting up after almost seven years of marriage, but they agree on how their four kids should be parented. Both reportedly feel that they should be a presence in their lives.

      A source tells People that West has been spending a lot of time with North, 7½, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 21 months.

      "Kanye has been spending time with all the kids," says the source. "A nanny is around during the visits. Kim has not been around for the visits, at Kanye's request."

      "Kim has made it clear that Kanye can talk to his children anytime he wants. She has never threatened to keep him from the kids," says the insider. "She only requires that he is not going to damage them. She knows he loves them, and they love him. Kanye can FaceTime the kids anytime he wants."

      "He knows he needs to be in contact with his kids. They need contact with their father," the insider adds. "He needs to show them how much he loves them."

    • MEDICAL ORGANIZATIONS WARN AGAINST FOLLOWING GWYNETH PALTROW'S COVID HEALTH ADVICE

      Gwyneth Paltrow's health advice is being dragged in the U.K. and the U.S. The 48-year-old shared her trademark new-age advice on Goop after revealing that she got COVID and was left with "long-tail fatigue and brain fog."

      She claimed that fasting, doing saunas and eating kimchi helped her combat the side effects. Paltrow wrote: "After he functional medicine practitioner Dr. Will Cole saw all my labs, he explained that this was a case where the road to healing was going to be longer than usual. So we've been doing a version of a protocol he outlines in his forthcoming book, Intuitive Fasting. It's keto and plant-based but flexible (I've been having fish and a few other meats), and I fast until 11 a.m. every day."

      Professor Stephen Powis, the national medical director of England's National Health Service, dragged the Oscar-winner to the BBC: "In the last few days I see Gwyneth Paltrow is unfortunately suffering from the effects of COVID. We wish her well, but some of the solutions she's recommending are really not the solutions we'd recommend in the NHS. We need to take long COVID seriously and apply serious science. All influencers who use social media have a duty of responsibility and a duty of care around that."

      Dr. Christian Sandrock, a physician specializing in emerging infectious diseases and critical care medicine, told Yahoo Life that "fasting can reduce some levels of inflammation," but added that there was no available data "specifically with acute post-COVID syndrome" and fasting.

      It could be detrimental, he added. "You can have fatigue and dizziness from not eating. We don't recommend fasting for COVID-19 patients. We recommend not overeating and eating non-processed foods."

      Dr. Jane Orient from the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons told Newsweek: "Ms. Paltrow offers insufficient information to assess exactly what she is doing, or the rationale. Various dietary regimens and nutritional supplements are being tried, but I know of no systematic studies. Symptoms may persist after COVID-19, as they do for many viral illnesses, such as infectious mono. People do recover with time."
