“Sound Of Silence” Starts Playing, Then These Skaters Take Everyone’s Breath Away

Figure skating is such a stunning sport than can be presented in so many different ways. From the classical styles we’re all used to, to the newer, more energetic styles that are becoming more prominent, a good skating routine can send chills down your spine.

After the 2018 Olympics, figure skating became even more popular thanks to the likes of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who battled against a presumed judging scandal to win the gold medal in ice dancing. The duo also caught everyone’s attention with their off-ice relationship.

But one routine that deserves more attention is that of French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres, who competed at the International Skating Union’s World Team Trophy in 2017. Held in Japan, the French skaters were gunning for first place and hoped their stunning routine would get them there.

The choreography, the music, the chemistry, and the execution of the whole routine is simply beautiful, and it’s no wonder these skaters received a standing ovation from the crown in Japan. If the routine seems familiar, it’s because the duo also performed at the Olympics in the team event to the same song. They finished sixth in the team event with a score of 75.34.

“It was our coaches who found it,” James told the Associated Press about the song. “They were like, ‘We really think it could be a hit.’”

And a hit it was. Take a look at the breathtaking routine! You won’t be able to take your eyes off of it.

Why Songs Get Stuck In Your Head, And The Simple Trick To Make Them Go Away

Call it whatever you like – sticky music, earworms, a stuck song, or just plain annoying.

If you’re one of the 90% of people who regularly deal with them, you’ve probably already experienced one this week.

Sadly, I’m one of the 30% who have it even worse, because I can’t make it through a single day without a song repeating in my head.

Whether it’s an old classic, or the last thing I heard on the radio, listening to the music repeat over and over can be seriously irritating.

Because this temporary condition, called “involuntary musical imagery” by scientists, is so common, lots of studies have tried to explain exactly why it happens.

Researchers say “YMCA” gets stuck in your brain very easily.CBS Music

No surprise here, but songs with repetitive, catchy melodies are the hardest to forget.

Classics like “YMCA,” “Jingle Bells,” and “We Will Rock You” all made the University of St. Andrews’s list of stickiest songs.

Recognizability and familiarity also make songs “catch” in your brain, which is why recent radio hits seem to infect the entire country all at once.

Then again, really sticky tunes like “The Song That Doesn’t End” have a habit of jumping out of nowhere and lodging in your brain for days. Is it on repeat in your mind yet?

If you’ve caught an earworm today and it won’t leave you alone, we have expert advice to shake it for good.

Disabled Teen Joins His Dad On Stage For A Performance That Changed Both Their Lives

Most 16-year-olds don’t become viral sensations when they enter their high school talent show.

But Jared Watson isn’t like most high school students.

You may notice that Watson uses a motorized wheelchair. He was born with a rare condition called spinal muscular atrophy that affects his ability to walk.

But what made Watson’s performance a global hit is what he can do, and that’s sing like a country music legend.

His performed “I Told You So” by Randy Travis with his father accompanying him on guitar, and once you watch their performance you’ll know why people can’t stop talking about it.

[embedded content]

Can you believe Watson only won third prize at the talent show? But that’s alright, because his singing voice earned him a few famous fans.

Travis’s wife, Mary David Travis, wrote to the young singer to congratulate him:

“Jared, you covered Randy’s song beautifully!” she wrote. “Just want you to know Randy teared up when he listened to it this afternoon.”

The performance also earned Watson the chance to perform on local TV, record demo tapes, and inspired him to write his own songs.

Watson says he used to dream of being the play-by-play announce for the Baltimore Orioles, but if you ask me he has a bright future on stage.

“I thought this was going to be an ordinary performance for me, but it turned out that this performance is changing my life,” Watson said in an interview.

“He’s sung for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always known he’s a really good singer,” his proud father Lee said. “And for him to ask me to back him up, it’s a thrill for me, being his father.”

You can hear more of Watson’s performances on his YouTube page.

Let’s share this young man’s incredible performance so everyone can see it!

Do You Get Goosebumps When Listening To Music? This Could Be A Very Good Sign

The human brain is a truly fascinating organ that is still full of many mysteries! It controls our entire body, sending and receiving key messages that help our bodies function normally.

There is something interesting about the brain that scientists have finally discovered: The reason some people get goosebumps when listening to music.

When you’re listening to your favorite tune, do you find that the hairs on your body stand up? Or do you feel a satisfying chill? This doesn’t have to happen every time you listen to a great song, but it happens often enough that you start to notice it.

Scientists call it “frisson,” and it’s actually not very common. Their findings say a lot about who you are as a person.

This happens to me a lot when I watch singing talent shows like American Idol or The Voice. When a new contestant comes and does a beautiful rendition of a great song, my arms start to feel tingly. It’s strange because this doesn’t happen to anyone else in my family.

Apparently that tingling sensation is actually telling you something about the structure of your brain. Fortunately, it’s a good thing.

Boy George Was Completely Blown Away By The Final ‘The Launch’ Winner, And You Will Be Too

As the debut season of The Launch draws to a close, it continues to prove that talent, persistence, and star power come in all shapes and sizes.

CTV

This week, Grammy award-winning artist and Culture Club frontman Boy George joined returning judges Scott Borchetta (executive producer, CEO of Big Machine Label Group) and Stephan Moccio (producer for Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion etc.) to find the perfect artist to launch the song “Giants.”

While it was a tough search, they found that artist in one of the most unlikely people imaginable: a 13-year-old singer from Toronto, ON.

CTV

Ethan Young (with perhaps one of the most appropriate last names in music history) began his pursuit of a musical career at a very young age, and a 13 he’s already attended schools for the arts and even performed as part of the Mini Pop Kids, who’ve played sold out shows across Ontario.

[embedded content]

Despite his age, Ethan wowed the judges with a performance of “Rise Up” by Andra Day, which he said inspired him to get past being bullied for his passions. His soulful, soaring voice made him a shoe-in as a finalist to record “Giants,” alongside fellow Torontonian Grace Bakker.

CTV

The two’s performance styles could not have been more different, with Ethan aiming for a large, emotional pop sound for the song, while Grace’s was much more stripped down and personal. Either one was a heavy contender for the winner, and both received some valuable advice about their individual styles and performances by fellow Canadian recording artist, Alessia Cara.

[embedded content]

Both had their individual struggles with the song as well, with Grace making sure to keep her individuality (even sometimes against the thoughts of the judges) while Ethan had a difficult time keeping his live performance subdued and focused instead of rushing through his movements.

CTV

Of course, only one could be chosen to launch the song, and after both turned in stellar live performances, it was Ethan who was chosen to have his rendition of “Giants” released immediately. The judges were in awe of his chops, with Boy George commenting that “What I noticed about you performing was that when people really reacted to you, you were even better.”

CTV

Ethan Young’s debut single, “Giants,” is now available for purchase everywhere. You can also follow him on Instagram and YouTube.

The Classic Song “Ain’t No Mountain” Is Not Actually About A Mountain

“‘Cause baby there ain’t no mountain high enough, Ain’t no valley low enough, Ain’t no river wide enough, To keep me from getting to you babe.”

We all know the song well. Whether it’s the 1967 original with Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell or the Diana Ross remake, it’s a song that brings back some good memories of the late sixties.

[embedded content]

The late sixties were a great time for music. With the Righteous Brothers, The Crystals, and Bobbie Gentry topping the charts, we can remember hearing our favorite songs on road trips with our friends and at high school dances.

Not all of our favorite songs out of the sixties have stood the test of time, but “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” certainly has!

The Supremes and Temptations were also involved in a duet after the original release of the song, and that version has been used in many reference to pop culture, even now. But both the original and the Diana Ross versions are still extremely popular.

The song was featured in the 2000 Disney release of Remember The Titans, in 2005 during the end credits of Chicken Little, and in the 2014 movie Guardians of the Galaxy.

[embedded content]

When Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell sang about the mountain in the classic 1967 song, you may be wondering if it was Mount Rushmore, the Rocky Mountains or Mount Everest there were referring to in the lyrics. As it turns out they weren’t talking about a mountain after all, according to the legend that wrote it.

Shannen Doherty Opens Up About Returning To Work Since Cancer Fight, And It’s An Inspiration To Us All

In August 2015, Shannen Doherty shook the world when she revealed to PEOPLE magazine she was battling breast cancer.

“Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment,” she said. “I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.”

The 90210 star was huge in the 80s and still carries her fame to this day.

Instagram

Doherty went through two rounds of chemo to help fight the cancer, and after the second round her hair began falling out. The actress started to panic, but she knew there was a solution.

“After my second treatment, my hair was really matted, like in dreadlocks. And I went to try and brush it out, and it just fell out,” she recalled. “I just remember holding onto huge clumps of my hair in my hands and just running to my mom crying, like, ‘My hair, my hair, my hair, my hair.'”

Doherty ended up shaving her whole head.

“We did stages. We did a pixie,” she said. “And then we did a mohawk, which was my favorite look. And then finally we had to get the shaver thing and just buzz it off.”

Instagram

On April 23, 2017, Doherty took to Instagram to let everyone know that she was in remission.

She still has a long road ahead of her, but part of that road includes returning to work. Doherty recently opened up about what it’s like to go back to work after fighting cancer.

The End Of CDs? Two More Major Chains Will Stop Selling Them

If you’re still in the habit of listening to music on your car’s CD player, we have bad news.

The music format is still popular around the world, but not in America. Last year, CD sales nationwide dropped by 18.5%. Compare last year’s 89 million CDs sold to the 800 million sold in 2001 (at the height of the CD’s popularity).

The golden age of CD stores is long gone.Kims Loans

Those shrinking numbers were enough to scare some of America’s biggest stores away from selling CDs altogether.

The electronics retailer Best Buy has just announced it will stop selling CDs on July 1. The plan is part of a way to cut costs for the chain, which Billboard reports was only making $40 million annually from CD sales.

Best Buy will stop selling CDs this summer.AP

Ironically, the store plans to continue carrying vinyl records for at least the next two years, since the format has become popular (and profitable) again thanks to music fans and collectors.

As if the news wasn’t bad enough, Best Buy isn’t the only chain taking CDs off their shelves.

Julia Michaels Was One Of Several People Wowed By This Week’s “Unexpected And Exciting” Winner

If you’re someone who regularly watches singing competitions, you probably know better than anybody that doing something different isn’t always the key to success. Throughout tons of competitions where a country gets to vote on the winner, you often end up getting two people who are barely any different from each other going head-to-head in a battle of pure popularity.

Well, if there was a ever a week where The Launch proved that it has a refreshingly different take on singing competition shows, this was it.

CTV

This week the judges had to pick two people to perform the new song “Codes,” and the talent on display wasn’t just amazing, but also diverse. Executive producer and Big Machine Label Group CEO Scott Borchetta, writer producer Ian Kirkpatrick (Selena Gomez, Jason Derulo), and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels had a tough decision ahead of them. In the end, the win went to Toronto-born R&B singer Jayd Ink.

CTV

With a background in poetry and several years of performing already under her belt, Jayd isn’t just unique, but also assertive. She states from the get-go that she can’t get behind a song that she can’t put a personal stamp on, and even after being selected by the judges to be one of the two to move ahead and record her version of “Codes,” she insisted on doing a different rendition than had been already mixed. In short, she’s an artist.

CTV

That’s not to say that her smooth, funky R&B rendition of the song was without competition though (More from Jayd here). Jayd was up against Zack Lane, a talented pop singer who already has an active touring schedule, and has even gotten to perform alongside legends like Jann Arden and Alabama’s Jeff Cook. Zack’s more direct and poppy rendition of the song easily could have pulled him through to the end, as he definitely had his fans (especially Julia Michaels, who seemed to be crushing on him a bit).

CTV

In the end though, it was the more dramatic shift in songwriting and performance that won out, as Jayd brought down the house with an R&B and reggae style that seemed effortless. As Kirkpatrick commented to her, “the way you came in with ideas was really unexpected and exciting. You made it your own.” We’re inclined to agree. Check out more from him here!

Jayd Ink’s debut single, “Codes,” is available for purchase everywhere here. You can also follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube.

Former Temptations Singer Dies at 74

Dennis Edwards, a former lead singer of the Motown group the Temptations, died on February 1st at the age of 74. He passed away only two days before his 75th birthday.

The man was truly a soul legend. Edwards joined the group from 1968 until 1977, and later rejoined for reunions in the ’80s. Although we were devastated to hear of his passing, we are certain that a legacy like his will never fade.

It was a moment in history when Edwards joined the group, which ended the “Classic Five” era that said goodbye to their first lead singer, David Ruffin. The smooth sound the quintet once had was replaced by something new and exciting: blues, soul-rock, and funk.

Edwards’s first album with the group was Live at the Copa. In that year, he collaborated with great singers like Diana Ross & the Supremes. This led to hits like “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and “Together.”

Soon after, hits like “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” and “Cloud Nine” were constantly played on the radio, and we couldn’t get enough of the iconic group.

[embedded content]

Edwards also released solo albums and found success with his song “Don’t Look Any Further.” Years later, he received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, while the retired singer was living in Missouri, he was diagnosed with a disease that slowly took his life.

Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Reveals She Inherited More From Her Dad Than Just Her Looks

Despite his tragic death by suicide in 1994, Kurt Cobain has remained a musical icon worldwide, thanks to both the music he released as the frontman for Nirvana, as well as his messages about artistic integrity and how to treat other people.

Inspiration Boost

In the nearly 25 years since his death, there have been plenty of posthumous releases by the band, as well as other projects that its members have gone on to (most notably, a little rock and roll band called Foo Fighters). However, what’s captured the attention of most people by far has been the continuing exploits of both Kurt’s ex-wife, Hole singer and actress Courtney Love, and their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

People

Frances was born two years before Kurt’s death, and the years since have been an uphill battle for her, thanks in large part to her increasingly unstable mother. Love was accused of using heroin during her pregnancy, and her ongoing battle with substance abuse was well-documented in the media, leading to Frances frequently being placed in the custody of her grandparents instead of her mother.

The Times

Now a full-grown and independent woman, Frances Bean Cobain has made a career for herself both as a visual artist and a model, appearing in several major publications. However, what people have wanted to know since the start is simple: did she inherit her dad’s singing chops?

The Dark Truth About Elvis Presley’s Controversial Manager

Elvis Presley is known as the King of Rock and Roll, but in order to get that title he had to work hard. For his entire career, there was one man by his side, pushing him to do more and helping him achieve a level of fame that was unheard of at the time. However, that man is probably one of the most controversial characters in history.

Colonel Tom Parker signed on as Presley’s manager in 1956. Ever since, the mystery surrounding him has everyone wondering what the truth is. With so much controversy spanning so many years, it’s a lot to break down, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Let’s get started with the truth about where he came from.

Colonel Tom Andrew Parker claimed to have been born in Huntington, West Virginia. He said he worked with carnivals, helping out with elephants and even managed a palm-reading booth, before he realized his talents as a music promoter.

The problem was, if anyone had ever bothered to look into his past, they would find that there was no Tom Parker from West Virginia.

Parker hadn’t even been a Colonel in any military! While he had served in the U.S. Army, he never made it past the rank of private, and was actually released from the army after being diagnosed as a psychopath following a “psychotic breakdown” in the 1930s. When the draft of World War II came around, he allegedly ate so much that he ballooned up to 300 pounds so he would be considered unfit for service.

However the truth about his identity didn’t come out until after Presley’s death. The Colonel made it well into retirement before anyone realized that Parker wasn’t who he claimed to be.

It turned out that “Colonel Tom Parker” was actually not born in West Virgina, but actually was Andreas van Kuijk, born in the Netherlands.

It’s suspected that the Colonel was an illegal immigrant, and worked for a travelling carnival when he first arrived in the country.

However the rumors of his criminal past are even more terrifying than his secret identity…

Nikki Sixx On Choosing This Week’s ‘The Launch’ Winner: “It’s one of the hardest decisions I’ve made.”

CTV’s The Launch has already given us an eclectic mix of winners in its previous two episodes. Between Logan Staats, a tattooed singer-songwriter with a gravelly voice to match, and Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, a pop duo with catchy hooks and a powerhouse voice, the show could never exactly be accused of being predictable.

CTV

So of course it comes as little surprise that this week’s winner was a 70s-style psychedelic rock band. I mean, why wouldn’t it be? Especially with an eclectic panel of judges that included executive producer and Big Machine Label CEO Scott Borchetta, Nashville producer and musician Dan Huff, and Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.

CTV

The Static Shift cite Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band, and Howlin Wolf as influences, and it shows not just in their retro look, but in the authentic classic rock meets modern production sound. Started by friends Mitchell Brady (guitar/lead vocals), Keone Friesen (Bass/harmonica/background vocals), and Isaiah Stonehouse (drums/background vocals) after they met at a rock and roll camp as kids, the band is looking to be part of the rock revival that seems to be just on the horizon.

[embedded content]

After wowing the judges with a confident performance of Free’s “Mr. Big,” the trio went up against powerhouse blues singer and mother of five Amy Bishop, who came out strong with a soulful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that had the judges awestruck. Both got to record their versions of the song “Wide Awake” and perform them for a studio audience, both struggled with it in some way, and for once, the judges were actually split on their choice for the winner.

CTV

Huff was dead-set on Amy’s version of the song, citing her powerhouse voice and more commercial style as putting her ahead, while Sixx felt The Static Shift’s version was more confident and had more potential to inspire others. Ultimately the tiebreaker fell to Borchetta, who elected to put the band through and release their single.

The Static Shift

With the release of their rocking version of “Wide Awake,” we expect big things from The Static Shift in the future.

The Static Shift’s single, “Wide Awake,” is available to stream or download now! For more, feel free to follow the band on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

Country Legend Dies 4 Months After Being Diagnosed With Rare Disease

Another celebrity has left us too soon, and unfortunately, there wasn’t much anyone could do to stop it.

Lari White, famed country music star, passed away Tuesday morning surrounded by her friends and family.

White rose to fame in the 80s after performing in a musical competition in Tennessee. She then entered the You Can Be A Star talent show in Nashville, blowing away the audience and judges with her incredible voice and stage presence.

In a few years time, she would take the national headlines by storm with her 1994 album, “Wishes.”

[embedded content]

White shot up the charts with singles like That’s My Baby, That’s How You Know (When You’re In Love), and Now I Know.

She would go on to win not one, but three Grammy Awards for the Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album.

But her ambitions didn’t end there, she had a taste of the limelight as a star, and wanted more.

How Willie Nelson’s Daughter Rescued His Famous Guitar From The IRS

With 12 Grammy awards and legions of devoted fans around the world, it’s hard to name a country star bigger than Willie Nelson.

The singer-songwriter who gave us classics like “Red Headed Stranger” and “Always On My Mind” is still impressing crowds at 84, but the country legend’s career nearly ended for good in 1990.

That was the year Nelson’s famous guitar, Trigger, was almost taken away from him.

Nelson and his guitar, Trigger.Sonic Vista Studios

Nelson has been performing with his iconic Martin acoustic guitar since 1969. The singer named the famous instrument after cowboy Roy Rogers’s horse, and credits the guitar with creating his iconic sound.

Nelson once even ran into a burning building to pull out his beloved guitar. So when the IRS came knocking on his door in 1990, the musician went to extreme lengths to protect his instrument.

The tax agency had put a $16 million lien on Nelson’s property over unpaid taxes, and was preparing to auction off his property to the highest bidder.

Nelson blamed his accountants for the tax mix-up, but even after the IRS negotiated his bill down to $6 million, it was still too high for him to pay.

The singer vowed that he would give up on show business if his guitar was auctioned, saying, “When Trigger goes, I’ll quit.”

Thankfully, Nelson’s daughter Lana stepped in to rescue the guitar.

Ed Sheeran Hinted At His Engagement Months Ago In A Hit Song

Fans of the popular singer-songwriter were both delighted and devastated when Ed Sheeran announced that he would be marrying his love and long-time friend, Cherry Seaborn.

Sheeran shared the happy news on Instagram, revealing that he had popped the big question at the end of 2017.

He and his beau have had a whirlwind romance, and Seaborn has made her way into several of Sheeran’s major hits.

The two of them knew each other in high school, and developed a close friendship. However, when Seaborn moved away for school they spent many years apart, not reconnecting until Sheeran gained international fame for his breakout album, “x” (multiply).

However, it would appear that his decision to marry the love of his life was no spontaneous move on the singer’s part. In fact, he may have hinted at his engagement with help from his pop star friend Taylor Swift months ago.

“What.Is.That?” Judge Can’t Believe His Ears When He Hears This Week’s Launch Winners

After The Launch‘s first episode introduced the world to its first new superstar, Logan Staats, the show had already set the bar pretty high for the caliber of talent that we expected its winners to deliver. Thankfully, this week’s winners, Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, came out swinging, and showed that the unique musical challenge show is far from a one-hit wonder.

CTV

This week’s panel of judges included returning executive producer and CEO of Big Machine Label Group, Scott Borchetta, One Republic frontman and producer Ryan Tedder, and Jennifer Nettles, half of the country duo Sugarland. Each of them came looking for the next big thing, and in Elijah and Jamie, they found it.

CTV

The duo from the nation’s capital of Ottawa, ON met when a friend of Elijah’s recorded Jamie performing, and the up-and-coming songwriter and instrumentalist knew that he needed to get this woman’s powerful voice recorded immediately. They’ve been inseparable ever since, and the chemistry between them showed when they performed two songs for the judges: a cover of Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” and their own original piece, “8:48.”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UT5K5_XElFE&w=854&h=480]

The two were a shoe-in for the show’s recording and performance rounds, going up against Basil Phoenix, a singer-songwriter from Toronto whose soulful voice and commanding presence accompanied a tragic past she overcame through song. While the duo were seen as more of a wildcard by the judges, ultimately Elijah’s instrumentation and Jamie’s powerhouse of a voice put them over the top.

After they took the stage and performed their rendition of Tedder’s composition, “Ain’t Easy,” the duo were understandably nervous, as their take on the song was notably different than what the songwriter had originally intended. However, Tedder himself sung some of their highest praise, commenting that: “If I had just heard her sing and heard them play in their first single, I would immediately be like ‘What. Is. That?!’ I would invest in it.” We’re inclined to agree.

CTV

Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine’s first single, “Ain’t Easy,” is now available everywhere for purchase. You can also follow them on Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram.

Neil Diamond Reveals Inspiration Behind “Sweet Caroline,” And It’s Kinda Creepy

The song “Sweet Caroline” is required listening for everyone. You’d be hard pressed to find a person who doesn’t know at least the chorus of the iconic Neil Diamond song, and who won’t chant “SO GOOD! SO GOOD! SO GOOD!” as though they are the official lyrics.

The song has become anthemic for Boston Red Sox fans, and it’s played before the bottom of the 8th inning at every single game as a good luck charm.

Her Campus

But the story behind the song has always been somewhat of a mystery. Who is Caroline? Diamond was married to his wife, Marcia, when the song was released, and it certainly wasn’t about her. People chalked it up to an emotionless (yet oddly sexual) song written to please the masses.

However, Diamond finally revealed the inspiration behind “Sweet Caroline,” and if we’re being honest, it’s kinda creepy.

Seal Under Investigation For Sexual Battery

Shortly following his criticisms of celebrity rape culture, renowned singer and songwriter Seal has himself come under criminal investigation for sexual violence.

Seal, whose real name is Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, has been a professional musician for over 30 years and his Grammy award-winning hits have touched fans for generations.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMD2TwRvuoU?feature=oembed]

He has been adored by audiences all over the world throughout his career, and recently took to social media to announce his support with the #MeToo movement that has been sweeping the entertainment industry.

When Oprah accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes, she lent her support to women who have experienced sexual abuse. Seal called Oprah out for her longstanding friendship with Harvey Weinstein, sharing an image that insinuated that she knew about the rumors surrounding the now outed sexual predator.

He then went on to ask women to continue to share their stories of abuse, so that celebrity misconduct is no longer buried.

In a shocking turn of events, a former neighbor has now come out to accuse the singer of violent sexual harassment in the wake of his comments.

There’s Been An Update On Michael Bublé’s Career

Tragically, on November 4th, 2016, Michael Bublé’s three-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer. Bublé and his wife, Lusiana Lopilato, both put their lives on hold to take care of their son.

“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US,” Bublé posted on Facebook “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

Daily Mail

Bublé cancelled all his appearances, including his hosting gig at the Brit Awards, in order to be with his son. Thankfully, in February of 2017, the family announced that Noah was doing much better.

When the good news about Noah’s health was revealed, a music insider had some promising words to say about doting dad, Michael.
