Marky Mark Is the World's Highest Paid Actor 

Believe it or not, MARK WAHLBERG is now the highest paid actor in the WORLD. 

NO ONE saw this coming 25 years ago . . . even at the height of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch hysteria.  According to "Forbes", he’s #1 on the list of 'The Highest Paid Actors', after he raked in $68 million over the past year.  That includes his paychecks from movies as well as his A&E reality show "Wahlburgers", and his AT&T ads.

DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON is a close second with $65 million.  He was #1 last year . . . and ROBERT DOWNEY JR. was #1 the three years before that, but fell to #6 on this year's list.


Who Will Sing the National Anthem at the Mayweather/McGregor Fight?

We finally know who will sing the National Anthem at the upcoming boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor:  it’s….Demi Lovato.

Demi Lovato is set to take the stage before the fight begins on Saturday. She should have no problem with the song considering she has sung the Anthem before at other major sporting events like the World Series in 2011 and 2015.

The fight airs this Saturday night at 8:00 (our time) on Showtime Pay-Per-View.  Experts predict that the fight will be the biggest pay-per-view event in history, with more than 50-million people watching in the U.S. alone.


Taylor Swift Is "Overhauling Her Image" with Her New Music 

How’s this for hype? 

TAYLOR SWIFT is still being mysterious on social media, but very upfront about what to expect from her new album coming mysteriously soon!  Rumor has it, she's trying to reinvent herself again.

A "source" told "Us" magazine, quote, "The single is very different.  It goes from very soft, to hard, to soft again.  Taylor is overhauling her image."

The source said she's still "pop", so it isn't like she's going metal or anything, but her new stuff "doesn't sound like anything she's done before."

Another source says Taylor's upcoming video is, quote, "definitely eye-catching."  BTW, the single is expected to be released this Friday.
