CNN —Bruce Springsteen has postponed concerts in three European cities over the next two weeks due to vocal issues. The legendary rocker, 74, was due to perform with E Street Band in Marseille, Prague and Milan. He canceled two US shows in March and August over other health issues. He accepted the honor in a hoarse voice, which he attributed to an evening spent singing in the quintessentially British rain. “I’m gonna sound really weird up here because I sang in the rain all night last night,” he said in a speech.

Learn moreEver since I started working from home, I've noticed my back and neck have hurt more. The internet suggested something called the Ready Rocker, and surprisingly, it actually helped. But when I first saw the ad for the Ready Rocker, the way it worked made sense to me — it's a device that changes how you sit, correcting your posture in the moment. The Ready Rocker allows the user to work from a couch or bed without sacrificing good posture. Whether it's the Ready Rocker, yoga, or a combination of the two, I'm going to continue my new routine for now.

A Croatian techno-rocker named Baby Lasagna strutting onto TV screens worldwide? It must be time for the Eurovision Song Contest. Since 1956, Eurovision has been pitting countries against each other in a fierce battle of over-the-top pop music, outlandish costumes and go-for-broke stagings. Fans of minimalism should abstain, because at Eurovision, even a modest ballad can be performed with wind machines, fur-lined capes or musicians playing upside down in a gigantic hamster wheel. The combined broadcasts are wildly popular: Last year, they reached 162 million people around the world.

CNN —Valerie Bertinelli is getting real about her relationship with late rocker Eddie Van Halen. The actress and culinary TV show host reflected on their time together in a video shared on Instagram. She said watching their son, Wolfgang Van Halen, in an episode of “Behind the Music” was “not easy.”“I’d stopped it many times because it was just too brutal to watch for many reasons. I made a lot of mistakes.”Bertinelli had a tumultuous marriage to Van Halen from 1981 to 2007, in part due to his substance abuse problems. Van Halen was married to actress Janie Liszewski from 2009 until his death.

He was standing just inside a movie theater at the South Street Seaport for a special screening of a new documentary series, “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.” He approached the event, hosted by the Cinema Society and Hulu, with the same charming grit that helped make him famous.

There’s a New (Old) It Girl in Paris
  + stars: | 2024-03-01 | by ( Vanessa Friedman | )   time to read: +1 min
For years the Chloé Girl was effectively another, more branded, version of the It Girl. I can’t think of another label that has such an imaginary person, rather than a logo, to embody it. That Chloé Girl is redolent of youth and energy; of freedom and romping in the sun-kissed daisy fields. She is a little bit hippie, a little bit rocker, a little bit romantic and a lot insouciant. And although that version of the Chloé Girl had been absent from fashion for awhile, on Thursday in Paris Chemena Kamali, the new creative director of Chloé, brought her back.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Marilyn Manson, who was sentenced to community service for blowing his nose on a videographer at a 2019 concert in New Hampshire, recently completed his time at an organization that provides meeting space for Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon, according to court paperwork. A certificate of completion was filed by the Assistance League of Los Angeles with a New Hampshire court on Jan. 30. Manson had to file proof of his service by Feb. 4. A no contest plea means Manson did not contest the charge and did not admit guilt. Several women have sued Manson in recent years with allegations of sexual and other abuse.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — New Jersey came to the West Coast to kick off Grammy Awards weekend, with native sons Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen teaming up. Bon Jovi hailed Springsteen as “my hero, my friend, my mentor” to a crowd of 2,000 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Instead of performing at the end of the evening as is traditional for the honoree, Bon Jovi got the nearly three-hour show going. Comedian Jim Gaffigan hosted and relentlessly mocked Bon Jovi for his big hair and penchant for wearing short-shorts in the 1980s. “Livin' On a Prayer” became an all-star finale, with Bon Jovi joined onstage by the other performers for a singalong.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge on Monday rejected Cher's request that her adult son be put into a court conservatorship controlling his money. Political Cartoons View All 253 Images“We are thrilled that the court saw that he does not need a temporary conservatorship,” Allman’s lawyer said as he stood alongside him outside the courthouse. “He’s got a lot of support, he’s doing great.”Cher's attorneys argued that the support Allman was getting was from people who tell him what he wants to hear and downplay the size of his problems. Blue and his attorneys have consistently argued since the petition was first filed in December that none of this is true. Cher's attorneys said that she was not necessarily seeking any direct control over Allman's money, and would be happy to have a court-appointed fiduciary manage his finances.

Why the controversial mullet is having a moment
  + stars: | 2024-01-17 | by ( Fawnia Soo Hoo | )   time to read: +10 min
Long hair, don’t careThe “modern day” mullet largely originates from David Bowie’s genre-defining and gender-norm defying persona, Ziggy Stardust, Glasscock said. “People from the Continental Congress wore what we would read as a full metal, 1992 mullet,” said Glasscock. (“Hockey hair” was, meanwhile, a popular synonym for mullet at the time, given its prominence among players and fans.) Devin Yalkin/Courtesy A24While playing Kerry Von Erich in “The Iron Claw,” White also wore his dynamic, sweeping mullet off-set — but not entirely by choice. “I was like, ‘I’m sorry, here’s a ponytail holder.”But that dedication may have played an integral part in a mullet revival kicking off 2024.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is making a big push to raise money for his reelection effort before the end of the year, appearing at seven events through next Monday — with more to come. Biden will also attend a fundraiser Wednesday near the White House and another one on Monday in Philadelphia. One of the Boston events, titled “You've Got a Friend in Joe,” is billed as an “evening concert" with Taylor and Biden. Taylor, the winner of six Grammy Awards, helped kick off a White House event in 2022 celebrating the Inflation Reduction Act, a climate and health care bill that Biden signed into law. As of the last fundraising reporting deadline at the end of September, Biden and his party reported $91 million cash on hand.

As of the last fundraising reporting deadline at the end of September, Biden and his party reported $91 million cash on hand. During the 2020 Democratic primary campaign, Smith and Costos hosted Biden's first major fundraiser in the area, during a Los Angeles swing that raised over $1 million.
