Keith Urban gets grilled on his love life with Nicole Kidman
Shortly after Keith Urban released "Gemini," off his 2018 album "Graffiti U," he told The Daily Telegraph the racy track was "just a simple, fun, sexy-a– song about my wife." Two years later, he has yet to live that admission down. With lines like, "she's a maniac in bed" and "she's waking me up to make love in the middle of the night," "Gemini" gives listeners a somewhat explicit glimpse of the country star and Nicole Kidman — a fact the hosts of Australia's "Kyle and Jackie O Show" gleefully used to make Keith squirm when he joined their on-air conversation on Monday, June 1. "When we had Nicole on last… I asked her about specific lyrics in 'Gemini' and she didn't know what to think …," Jackie teased, according to the Daily Mail. The hosts then played a clip of Nicole's 2019 appearance on their show, when the pair grilled the actress about the lyrics of the song. "Did you say to him, 'Watch what you say about me, darling?'" Kyle asked the Oscar winner at the time. "I don't censor his art … if I can be a muse for it …," Nicole responded playfully. "It is embarrassing but at the same time, yes, it's better than saying, 'God, I'm so bored… Make an effort, Nicole,'" she joked. "He also says you wake up in the middle of the night to get your freak on," Kyle pressed on, referencing the lyrics. "No, what?! You're making that up, Kyle," Nicole replied, pretending to be shocked. "Shut up. I'm not answering that, that's outrageous," she said with a laugh. Speaking to Keith on Monday, Jackie and Kyle wondered if the couple ever discussed the interview. "We haven't thought much about that actually," the singer said carefully before he, Jackie and Kyle all started laughing. The hosts then determined Keith's reaction must mean the "maniac in bed" and "middle of the night" business is all "true," to which Keith cheekily responded, "maybe …"
Keep reading for details on Kylie Jenner's pre-pandemic spending spree …
Is Kylie Jenner's pre-pandemic spending to blame for billionaire status drop?
Last week, Kylie Jenner slammed Forbes for its claim that she deceived the magazine about her wealth in order to be crowned the world's youngest billionaire, a title the outlet has since rescinded. But a new report from Page Six suggests the 22-year-old makeup entrepreneur has been dropping so much coin on her toddler that her Stormi spending may have played a major role in knocking her estimated net worth down below (ahem) $900 million. According to the tab, Stormi's second birthday celebration in February — which cost $100,000, according to TMZ — involved a Global Express Jet Kylie bought for $50 to $70 million and had decorated "in the theme of Stormi's birthday." We assume the private jet in question is the one Kylie and Stormi took to Disney World for Stormi's big day. Page Six also points to "monster real estate deals" Kylie allegedly closed in the months leading up to the pandemic. The outlet has not detailed what those deals were. Meanwhile, shares in Coty, the beauty giant that reportedly bought 51 percent of Kylie Cosmetics for $600 million last year, saw its stocks plummet after the Forbes report on Friday, according to Time. The beauty economy was already suffering at the time because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Pink, more stars slam Donald Trump for response to George Floyd protests
Musicians including Pink, Axl Rose and Ice-T lashed out at Donald Trump over the weekend after learning he'd been tweeting from a bunker beneath the White House when George Floyd protesters in Washington, D.C., turned their attention towards 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Responding to a tweet by the president that read, "LAW & ORDER!," Pink posted: "You're a coward and a racist and just like everything else you've ever attempted in your life, A COMPLETE AND UTTER FAILURE. I can't wait to vote you out in November. Maybe you'll see the results from your baby bunker," according to Billboard. The Guns 'N Roses frontman, meanwhile, slammed the president for griping about "the lamestream media" and its coverage of the protests and for seemingly inciting gun violence against protesters. "Lamestream media ISN'T doing everything within their power 2 foment hatred n' anarchy, that's U!" Rose tweeted at Trump. "As long as we get what Ur doing, that Ur FAKE NEWS n' a truly bad, repulsive excuse 4 a person w/a sick agenda, we can work past U w/whatever it takes 2 a better, stronger future!!" Adam Lambert weighed in on Trump's response to the situation as well, calling the president a "complete joke." "I don't care what political party you associate with, but that man isn't a leader, he's a liability, a liar and a cancer on this country's flag," the singer wrote. "Law & Order" star Ice-T responded to the president's Twitter call for "law and order," by posting simply, "This MF …"
Don Lemon calls out Hollywood elite for silence on George Floyd's death
On Saturday, CNN's Don Lemon called out members of the Hollywood elite by name for failing to speak out or take action in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of police in Minneapolis. After showing clips of the protests that have raged across the country for days following the unarmed African American man's killing by a white police officer on May 25, Lemon got irate about those who have declined to appear on his show and talk about issues like police brutality and racial injustice. "A lot of people I ask to come on this show, to talk about this, [such as] wealthy celebrities, wealthy political people, [say], 'I can't do it. I'm mad. I don't want people to see me mad. It might hurt my business. I'm so upset that I had to go to my country house,'" he said (via EW). "Where are you? Why aren't you fighting for these young people? If you don't do it now, when are you going to do it? … if you are a millionaire or a gazillionare or a movie star or a politician and you don't step up now, when the hell are you going to do it? I hate that. You are your brand. Step up, people. Step up, Black Hollywood." He went on to criticize those who have only tweeted about what's happening, while young people protesting in the streets are "standing on a platform at the edge of the abyss by themselves." Said Lemon: "By me calling out your name, it doesn't mean I'm calling you out. It means I love you, Ellen [DeGeneres]. It means I love you, Oprah … I want to see you Tracee Ellis Ross. I want to see you Tyler Perry. I want to see you Drake." He continued to rattle of celebs' names like Jane Fonda, Diddy and more. Stars who have joined the throngs of people demanding justice for Floyd in the streets include Ariana Grande, Halsey and John Cusack, who said over the weekend police came at him with batons.
Bindi Irwin reveals the paparazzi forced her to relocate her wedding at the last minute
Earlier this year, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell scrapped their original wedding plans because of the pandemic and married weeks earlier than intended, before zero guests. But there were more changes in store for the couple's big day. As Bindi shared on Instagram over the weekend in a long post about the March 25 ceremony, they ended up having to relocate everything at the last minute after discovering their secret event wasn't so secret after all. Sharing a photo of herself in a long white gown beside Chandler, she explained: "This isn't the fairytale image capturing the 'perfect' wedding day feeling. In fact, it's quite the opposite." Bindi went on to recall how she and Chandler had decided "the night before" they said "I do" to go ahead and have the ceremony early, in spite of the fact their friends and family couldn't be there. "We were finally about to get married and the paparazzi flew over us in a helicopter scaring our wildlife," she wrote. "We had to leave our stunning wedding venue on the [Australia zoo's] African Savannah for their safety. I said goodbye to the place I had dreamed of getting married for so many years." It occurred to her the barn she and her family had used for years for their TV shows would be a great substitute, she recalled, so she and Chandler and their "zoo crew" proceeded to move everything from the "Savannah" to the barn. "At one point I sat on a chair in the corner doing my best not to think about how overwhelming things seemed," she shared. "I missed the people who couldn't be there, my dad, Chandler's family, our dear friends, my family. Chandler stopped what he was doing and sat next to me. I asked him to list me happy things. He proceeded to remind me that love ALWAYS wins. That's when this picture was taken." Ultimately, Bindi wrote, she came to realize all that matters is that she and Chandler have each other. "Sure, things weren't perfect but that's life. Life is messy and beautiful and meant to be felt," she wrote. "We were overcoming great obstacles to prove that unconditional love is the most important foundation. Our wedding day wasn't what we planned but it was an extraordinary starting point for our marriage to bloom." Footage of the ceremony appeared in a special episode of "Crikey! It's the Irwins." The show aired in the U.S. in April but won't be shown in the couple's native Australia until July.

Katherine Heigl writes long, candid post about racism as she tries to figure out how to explain George Floyd's death to her daughter
As the white mother of a black child, Katherine Heigl has been wrestling with how to talk about George Floyd's death with the 7-year-old. In several recent posts on Instagram (via People), the actress explained why she's making an exception to her usual rule of not posting about "the state of our country." "I can't sleep. And when I do I wake with a single thought in my head. How will I tell Adalaide?" she wrote. "How will I explain the unexplainable? How can I protect her? How can I break a piece of her beautiful divine spirit to do so? I can't sleep. I lay in my bed in the dark and weep for every mother of a beautiful divine black child who has to extinguish a piece of their beloved baby's spirit to try to keep them alive in a country that has too many sleeping soundly." Her posts got more personal from there, as she acknowledged her "white bubble" is starting "to bleed." "My upbringing of inclusivity, love and compassion seemed normal. I thought the majority felt like I did," she wrote. "I was naive. I was childish." Referencing Adalaide and her 11-year-old daughter, Naleigh Mi-Eun, she continued: "I look at my daughters. My sister. My nephews and niece. George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. The hundreds, thousands millions more we haven't even heard about. I look and the fear turns to something else. The sorrow warms and then bursts into flames of rage." Finally, she said it's not enough to charge Derek Chauvin with murder for being the officer who pressed his knee into Floyd's neck, but that the police who stood by and did nothing must "pay" as well. "I want that payment to be harsh. I want it to be a painful, irrevocable consequence for their evil acts and behaviors and for those consequences to scare the shit out of every other racist still clinging to their small, stupid minded hate," she wrote. After asserting she wants people to really see what racism means and its effects on others, she wrote, "All I know is that I want [racism] to end. Today. Forever."
