Lennon, McCartney back together? Well sort of

Lennon and McCartney have teamed up again. But it wasn’t some long-lost recording of John Lennon fronted by Paul McCartney years later. 

It was actually the sons of the two music legends.

Sean Ono Lennon and James McCartney recently spent time together and took a selfie that could, at a quick glance, be taken for an image of their two fathers from years ago.

Lennon posted the photo to Instagram this week.

Both are following in the footsteps of their fathers, having become musicians themselves, CNN reported.

Ono Lennon is the son of the late John Lennon and Yoko Ono. McCartney is the son of Paul McCartney and the late Linda McCartney. 

Some of the younger Lennon’s followers are hoping there is more than a photo opportunity, asking them to do a musical project together, CBS News reported.

Lennon also recently posed with a photo with the late George Harrison’s son Dhani, CBS News reported

Police: Credible bomb threat led Rascal Flatts to end Indianapolis concert early

Fans at a Rascal Flatts show Thursday were disappointed after the concert ended abruptly due to security concerns.

The Associated Press reported that the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said a credible bomb threat led to a quick evacuation of Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center, a 24,000-capacity venue.

Fans tweeted about confusion about the abrupt end to the show. Some video included a musician at a piano playing a song before he quickly left the stage.

Hours later, Rascal Flatts posted a statement about the incident on Facebook Friday morning.

“Indianapolis - Due to a security concern at the show last night, standard procedures were quickly executed and everyone was able to safely leave the building,” the band, which includes, Joe Don Rooney, Gary LeVox, and Jay DeMarcus, said in a statement. “The safety of our fans, band and crew is always the top priority for us, so we are so thankful for everyone who jumped into action and for your understanding. We will be back soon!”

Attendee Britni Sherlock told The Indianapolis Star there was an announcement over the intercom system that said the show was over. 

“Everyone booed. We continued to wait in the pavilion, and that’s when security came up to everyone and told us to leave,” she said. “I asked what was going on and he replied, ‘We were told to evacuate the pavilion immediately.’”

The show ended before the band could come out for an encore performance.

“(Rascal Flatts) had just finished their song ‘Banjo’ and did the what-was-thought-to-be-false 'Good night' before the encore,” concertgoer Andy VonDielingen told IndyStar. “Their piano player started to play and then just stopped and left. A few minutes later lights come on and security is pulling some guy looking to be in his 20s out of the pit. ... Everyone is standing around, looking at each other and wondering what is going on.”

WRTV reported that staff with concert promoter and venue operator Live Nation informed the Sheriff’s Office of a safety issue before the end of the show. 

“Last night a safety concern presented itself during the Rascal Flatts’ concert in Noblesville,” Live Nation said in a statement Friday, according to WXIN. “Venue staff and local officials followed standard protocols to ensure the safety of guests, the artist and staff. Law enforcement agencies are investigating the matter.”

No arrests have been made related to the threat.

’No Erasin’: Steve Perry releases first new song in 20 years, album to be released in October

Steve Perry fans have waited decades for new material from the former Journey lead singer. They’ve finally gotten their wish as he released the video for “No Erasin” on YouTube late Tuesday night.

He also announced that his latest album, titled “Traces,” will be released on Oct. 5, Billboard reported.

Perry explained that his retreat from music due to the fact that, “My love for music had suddenly left me.”

“I knew that simply stopping was what I had to do. If music was ever to return to my heart, then and only then I would figure out what to do,” Perry told his fans via his website.

“If not... so be it, for I had already lived the dream of dreams,” Perry continued. 

Perry said he started working on “Traces” three years after his partner, Kellie Nash, died from breast cancer. 

The album will have nine original songs, along with a cover of “I Need You,” which was written and performed by The Beatles, Rolling Stone reported.

Perry’s previously released song was 1998’s “I Stand Alone,” for the film “Quest for Camelot,” Billboard reported.

He did attend Journey’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, but didn’t perform. His last show with Journey was in February 1987, Perry said on his website.

Parrot drops expletives at firemen attempting to rescue her from rooftop

A pet parrot appeared to be less than happy about firemen who came to rescue her after she spent three days on a roof.

According to a post about the incident from the London Fire Brigade, Jessie the Macaw parrot escaped from her home and was on a neighbor’s roof for three days. When her owner and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals unsuccessfully attempted to get her down, the Fire Brigade was called in.

“Jessie had been on the same roof for three days and there were concerns that she may be injured which is why she hadn’t come down. Our crew manager was the willing volunteer who went up the ladder to try and bring Jessie down. We were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her ‘I love you’, which is exactly what the crew manager did,” watch manager Chris Swallow said in a post about the incident on the LFB government page.

“While Jessie responded ‘I love you’ back, we then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement. Jessie also speaks Turkish and Greek, so we tried telling her to ‘come’ in both those languages too.

“Thankfully it soon became apparent that Jessie was fine and uninjured as she flew off to another roof and then to a tree.”

Later that afternoon, Jessie came back home on her own time. Her owner sent a video of her saying “Thank you” to the firemen for helping her out.

Bruno Mars announces Ciara, Boyz II Men, more for 24K Magic Tour

The official announcement includes a video of Mars playing around with Photoshop to create a poster for the tour, mostly introducing each artist by singing a line of their songs.

Cardi B announced in July that she would not be joining Mars as planned on the last leg of his tour, saying she underestimated leaving her newborn daughter, Kulture Kiari, while she is on the road.

“I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing,” Cardi B said in a July 26 tweet

“Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it's not healthy for her to be on the road,” she said. “Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding.”

“Most important thing is you and your family's health. I know the fans will understand,” he tweeted in a statement to Cardi B. “I also know we'll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor. Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on The 24k Magic Tour.”

Jury says former NASCAR driver Greg Biffle intruded on ex-wife's privacy

Jurors reached a verdict Monday in the civil court case involving former NASCAR driver Greg Biffle. 

According to the jury, Greg Biffle did invade the privacy of his ex-wife, Nicole Biffle.

Nicole Biffle and her mother sued him, claiming Greg Biffle had hidden cameras installed in bedrooms and bathrooms of their mansion, recorded them and showed that video to other people.

>> Read more trending news 

There were 12 days of testimony in the case, including expert witnesses discussing the cameras.

Greg Biffle took the stand in court and denied doing anything inappropriate. He said that his wife had known the cameras were there.

The jury said Greg Biffle did “intrude offensively upon the privacy” of his ex-wife with the positioning of hidden cameras in their home.

Jurors awarded $1 in damages Monday. The plaintiff was seeking $9 million.

Jurors decided the cameras did not cause emotional distress. 

Both sides claimed victory after the ruling.

“What the jury said sends a loud message that they don’t believe there was wrongdoing,” Greg Biffle told WSOC.

Amy Simpson, the attorney for Nicole Biffle, said it proves Greg Biffle was in the wrong.

A hearing to consider punitive damages is scheduled for next Monday.

Gabrielle Union reveals adenomyosis diagnosis, discusses fertility struggles

Gabrielle Union has revealed a diagnosis that has affected her fertility.

Essence reported that the actress, book author, wife and stepmother spoke candidly about being diagnosed with adenomyosis at the BlogHer conference in New York City.

>> Read more trending news 

“Towards the end of my fertility journey, I finally got some answers, because everyone said, ‘You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid — and that’s on you for wanting a career,’” she said. “The reality is, I actually have adenomyosis.”

According to the Seckin Endometriosis Center in New York, adenomyosis is a form of endometriosis that causes the tissue that forms the lining of the uterus grow into the uterus muscle, damaging the uterus wall.

“The gag is I had it in my early 20s, and instead of someone diagnosing me, they were like, ‘Oh, you have periods that last nine or 10 days and you’re bleeding through overnight pads? Not a mere inconvenience, perhaps there’s something more there,’” Union said.

The 45-year-old, who has been married to NBA player Dwyane Wade since 2014, said although her symptoms were clear, doctors kept giving her ineffective solutions.

“Every doctor I saw was like, ‘Let me put you on birth control,’” Union said. “Note: If you are on birth control for anything other than birth control, to address or treat any sort of period issue, you are not actually treating or addressing a period or reproductive issue. You are masking it. The pill can mask all kinds of things. It is amazing at preventing pregnancy; not so great with addressing adenomyosis.”

Union has been open about her challenges to conceive in the past. She wrote in her book “We’re Going to Need More Wine” that she had “eight or nine miscarriages.” She discussed her experience with in vitro fertilization on “The Dr. Oz Show” in July.

“For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant,” she said. “I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

Union offered support to others at the New York conference, saying, “Just know if you are out there having fertility issues — you are not alone.”
