Bruce Springsteen's daughter joins Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics
Her father sings "Born in the USA," and now she's part of Team USA. Jessica Springsteen, Bruce Springsteen's 29-year-old daughter, will compete on the U.S. equestrian show jumping team at the Tokyo Olympics this summer. "Been dreaming of this since I can remember! Endless gratitude for my team, friends and family for helping me make this a reality," Jessica wrote on Instagram. She will ride her 12-year-old horse, Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, who she also thanked. "There's no horse in the world I'd rather be on this journey with, thank you Don! You're my horse of a lifetime," she wrote. Jessica was an alternate at the 2012 Olympics, but this will be her first time competing. Spectators for the Tokyo Olympics are limited, but perhaps they'll make an exception for an American icon such as The Boss.
Kourtney Kardashian went to Disneyland and wore the Minnie Mouse ears meant for brides
Kourtney Kardashian is now fully trolling fans who are looking for signs that she might be secretly engaged to her boyfriend Travis Barker. While visiting Disneyland on Sunday with Barker and his kids, the 42-year-old snapped a picture with a fan and Alabama Barker, 15, — while wearing bridal Minnie Mouse ears. The photo was shared by Alabama only to be quickly taken down, so there's some confusion over whether the ears belonged to Kourtney or if she was just borrowing them. But "usually you wear [the Minnie Mouse bridal ears when you're a] bride at Disney either pre wedding or post for honeymoon," a follower pointed out. The follower failed to mention the other reason you might wear the white Minnie Mouse ears: to get gossip columns to write about it.
Pete Davidson will be tattoo-less by the time he's 30
Pete Davidson has a few regrets and, shocker, it sounds like his multiple ex-girlfriend tattoos are among them! The 27-year-old comedian is in the process of removing his more than 100 tattoos, citing the burden they've caused him as he's segued into doing more work in the movies (it takes between three and four hours in the makeup chair to have them all covered up, he's said). In a new interview with PeopleTV, he explained that the process is arduous since "it takes like a month for it to heal" after each session. He added that "I get my next treatment [in] like a month or so. They said by the time I'm 30, they should all be gone. So they got like two more years left of this." Ouch.
Marcel's trainer is tired of David Schwimmer insulting the Friends monkey: 'Let it go'
While fans were arguing whether Ross and Rachel were on a break, a deeper Friends conflict was brewing: Ross vs. Marcel. After David Schwimmer complained about the monkey yet again on the Friends reunion, the monkey's trainer, Mike Morris, is speaking out. "People would laugh at the monkey and I think [Schwimmer] got jealous because it wasn't him getting the laughs," Morris said. Two monkeys played Marcel, and one recently passed away, prompting Morris to deem Schwimmer's comments "despicable." The trainer said it's clear Schwimmer holds a grudge, but the monkey probably doesn't even remember him (savage!). "It was one season over 25 years ago, it's time to let it go," Morris lamented. "It's almost like he's still got a monkey on his back."
Diddy says if you work hard, you can eat mango in front of the ocean
Diddy was in an inspirational mood Tuesday morning when he shared a video of himself eating mango in front of a pool overlooking the ocean, donning goggles and flippers. "You could be eating mango, too, with the ocean as your background," he said. "I ain't special, I just want it. I want it bad. I will not allow myself to not have mango." He then mumbled something through a mouthful of said mango and showed off his pool diving skills once again. Diddy captioned the video with a story about waking up to 15 cockroaches on his face as a child, a moment that inspired him. "Work hard, believe in your crazy dreams… AND NEVER SETTLE!" he wrote. The internet wasn't buying the bit about the bugs, but at least the mango looked good!
