James Corden temporarily banned from restaurant for 'abusive' behavior
In between showing up in all the worst movie musicals you've ever watched, James Corden somehow had time to (allegedly) terrorize a New York City restaurant. Restaurateur Keith McNally revealed on Instagram he has banned the Late Late Show host from his restaurant Balthazar in New York for allegedly being the "most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago." McNally cited two incidents, the first in which Corden was allegedly "extremely nasty" after finding hair in his food, and he allegedly also yelled "like crazy" at a server for messing up his order. But just hours after his original post, McNally said Corden called and "apologized profusely," so he rescinded the ban. "Anyone magnanimous enough to apologize to a deadbeat layabout like me (and my staff) doesn't deserve to be banned from anywhere," McNally said, adding, "All is forgiven." Well, the restaurant behavior is forgiven, at least. It may be years before we're ready to forgive him for Cats.
Kanye West to be sued by George Floyd's family for $250 million
Now sure would be a great time for Kanye West to be married to an aspiring lawyer. The family of George Floyd is preparing to sue Ye over false claims he recently made about Floyd's death. In between his various antisemitic rants, West claimed on Drink Champs that Floyd, who was killed in police custody after Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for over nine minutes, actually died from fentanyl. "If you look, the guy's knee wasn't even on his neck like that," West claimed. Floyd's family has now sent a cease and desist letter to West for his "blatantly false" and "malicious" statements. The mother of Floyd's daughter is also preparing to sue him for a whopping $250 million for the comments, alleging harassment, misappropriation, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress. Sounds like Ye's legal bills are about to start piling up, so it's a good thing he didn't recently agree to buy a failing social media platform or anything like that.
Zoë Kravitz is credited as a songwriter on Taylor Swift's new album
Wait, Taylor Swift's new album is actually just a soundtrack to The Batman 2, isn't it? We were already getting suspicious when Swift announced two of the songs on Midnights are called "Vigilante S--t" and "Anti-Hero," but on Tuesday, it was revealed via iTunes that Catwoman herself, Zoë Kravitz, is listed as a songwriter on the album. She's credited along with Swift on two tracks: "Lavender Haze" and "Karma." Swift and Kravitz are friends and even shared a quarantine pod during the pandemic. Swift also praised Kravitz's performance in The Batman on Instagram when the film came out, calling her the "Catwoman of dreams." Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn also has another songwriting credit on Midnights — he's listed under the pseudonym William Bowery as a writer on "Sweet Nothing," which will presumably be an entire love song devoted to Colin Farrell's Penguin.
Warner Bros. reportedly has 'intense desire' for more of Henry Cavill as Superman
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's … DC finally getting off its butt and doing something with Superman! Warner Bros. "has an intense desire" to bring back Henry Cavill as Superman in the DC universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Superman has been weirdly absent from the franchise for years now, and when he briefly appeared in Shazam!, we never saw his face. But the Reporter says DC is now searching for writers to work on a project that "would essentially be Man of Steel 2." The report comes as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been strongly implying Cavill will cameo as Superman in this Friday's Black Adam, even though you'd assume that's supposed to be a surprise. Would a "spoiler alert" kill you, Dwayne? Meanwhile, the Reporter also revealed a script for a sequel to The Flash starring Ezra Miller has already been completed. Now, time for the writer of that script to take a giant sip of coffee and Google "Ezra Miller."
Cara Delevingne went to a 'masturbation seminar,' found out she's a 'prude'
Cara Delevingne will do anything for self-love, but she won't do that. The actress spoke in Cannes about her new documentary series Planet Sex, revealing she attended a "masturbation seminar" for the project. "I went into the masturbation seminar thinking it was going to be a classroom and I'd have a notepad, and instead it was a pink, leather gym mat on the floor, with six people going, 'Well, take your underwear off. This is the lube,'" Delevingne said, per Variety, explaining she "didn't realize I was a prude" until this experience. "I think I'm a pretty hip, young, cool, down-with-anything kind of girl but I was like, 'Sorry what? Sorry, no, absolutely not, I will not do that.'" You know you've gone too far when a woman who has a vagina tunnel in her house looks like a nun in comparison.
