Do you want to become a rich and famous international recording star? Start smoking NOW. At least that seems to be ADELE’s advice. She had surgery in 2011 for a vocal cord hemorrhage, and she hasn’t been the same since.
She said, quote, “The people with the best voices, they always smoke. I’ve given up smoking and I’m convinced that’s made my voice weaker.”
There’s at least one bright side, though . . . quote, “My fingers ain’t orange anymore.”
…Just in case you were considering it, this station and common sense warns you NOT to pick up that habit.

If you’re one of those people who are OUTRAGED that they’re remaking “Ghostbusters” with women, then I have even WORSE news for you. Because the star of the upcoming “Road House” remake is . . . UFC women’s champ RONDA ROUSEY.
It’s one thing to turn Aykroyd, Murray, Ramis, and Ernie Hudson into chicks . . . but Swayze? SWAYZE???
Although let’s look at this a little more closely: Swayze was prettier than Ronda on his worst day, and on his best day he was nowhere near the fighter she is.
So if we’re being honest, “Road House” is FINALLY getting the true, real-life ass-kicker it deserves in the lead role.
Plus, Ronda reached out to Patrick’s widow Lisa Niemi, and got her approval. She Tweeted, quote, “It is a great honor to play a part in celebrating the life of a man that inspired so many.
“I couldn’t be more grateful to have this opportunity to pay respect to the beloved Patrick Swayze. I promise to work incessantly to make sure this project is a tribute his family and fans can be proud of.”
Disney announced a “Frozen” sequel and a “Star Wars” stand-alone film during a shareholder meeting yesterday.
There’s no word on a plot for “Frozen 2”, but Disney boss Bob Iger said, quote, “You will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”
And KRISTEN BELL Tweeted a picture of herself resting on a bag of ice, with the caption, “Dreams really do come 2!!!”
The “Star Wars” movie will be called “Rogue One”, and it’ll star FELICITY JONES from the Oscar-nominated Stephen Hawking movie “The Theory of Everything”. It’ll be directed by Gareth Edwards, who did last year’s “Godzilla” remake.
There’s no word on the plot, but Iger said it will focus on, quote, “great ‘Star Wars’ characters that are not part of the overall saga.” It’s due out in December of 2016.
Iger also said “Star Wars 8” will come out in May of 2017. “Star Wars 7” hits theaters this coming December.
Your female “Ghostbusters” have been announced . . . and the choices definitely could have been worse. KRISTEN WIIG and MELISSA MCCARTHY from “Bridesmaids” are headlining the cast. Which isn’t surprising, since “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig is doing this one. And he Tweeted that it’s coming out June 22nd, 2016.
Kristen and Melissa will be backed up by current “Saturday Night Live” cast members KATE MCKINNON and LESLIE JONES. And yes, Leslie Jones is BLACK.
There’s no word if she’ll be the fourth-most important Ghostbuster, like ERNIE HUDSON was in the original movies.
It’s interesting that BILL MURRAY has always been the stumbling block to getting a third “Ghostbusters” made with the original cast. But when asked who should star in the female version, he mentioned both Kristen and Melissa.
Maybe the casting will convince him to make a cameo?
2004 doesn’t SEEM like it was that long ago . . . until you realize it was a full DECADE ago. Here are 10 sentences that wouldn’t have made ANY sense 10 years ago . . .
- “They hacked into the cloud.”
- “I use the hashtag ‘no filter’ on all my photos.”
- “My Internet is down so I can’t watch TV.”
- “When do pumpkin spice lattes come back?”
- “She unfriended me.”
- “I can’t believe I got catfished.”
- “I don’t know who’s a bigger movie star, Robert Downey Jr. or The Rock.”
- “Gas is down to $3.50-a-gallon!”
- “I might get rid of my car thanks to Uber.”
- “He’s making $30,000-a-day posting on YouTube about ‘Minecraft’.”
