Hanks and Mr. Rogers Related in Christine’s Entertainment Update
John Mayer on Taylor Swift's song "Lover," an emotional DWTS recap and believe it or not, Tom Hanks is related to Fred Rogers.
Taylor Swift is now allowed to perform her older songs at the 2019 American Music Awards. This came after Big Machine Label Group agreed to grant all licenses for Taylor's performances. Last week, Taylor posted on social media that Big Machine founder Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun, who acquired Big Machine and the singers six-album catalog with the label, were blocking her planned performance of a medley of her earlier hits at this year's AMAs. Jeez, how thoughtful of them (as I roll my eyes).
Speaking of Taylor Swift, guess who had something to say about her song "Lover?" Her ex-boyfriend John Mayer. He did an Instagram Live with Shawn Mendes last night.
Emotions were already riding high on Monday's Dancing with the Stars as the competitors had one last shot to make it to the finals. However, the night was heartbreaking with moments that brought the audience, the contestants, and the judges to tears.
The most devastating moment of the night happened in the last five minutes of the episode when the season's two habitual highest scorers, Ally Brooke and James Van Der Beek, were sent to the bottom two. James shared with everyone the devastating loss that he and his wife went through this past weekend. His wife Kimberly was four months pregnant and suffered a miscarriage.
With only one save, judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli regretfully chose to send Van Der Beek home. Ally, being the sweetheart she is, was in tears as she begged, "Can I give it to James, please?" I love this girl.
And now for something that's gonna knock your socks off. We all know that Tom Hanks is playing Fred Rogers on the big screen this weekend in the highly anticipated Mister Rogers movie, but we did not know that the two are actually related. I know, crazy, right?! Here's Tom and his wife Rita Wilson getting the news.
