PINK GETS SOME “MOM INSURANCE”
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Many parents with grown children know the deal: you do your best to raise them and when they get older, they tell you all the ways you could have done better. If only there was a video to show them all the sacrifices you made. Thanks to film director Michael Gracey, Pink has such “mom insurance.” He worked with her on one of her music videos and saw all Pink did while touring as a full-time mom. So he talked her into making a documentary. Pink says one reason she agreed was that she’d have proof if her kids claimed later that they were neglected. Pink says they can watch and conclude their mom “was fantastic.” You can marvel at Pink, too; “All I Know So Far” is streaming now on Amazon Prime.
STEVEN COLBERT’S SHOW TO RETURN TO FULL STUDIO NEXT MONTH
NEW YORK (AP) – Fans of late-night comedy shows will soon be able to tell if others thought a host’s jokes were a hit – or bombed. After more than a year of doing shows remotely, Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” will return June 14 with a full, live studio audience. For safety’s sake, CBS says the audience must have proof of vaccines. Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” is promising to bring back full audiences – and may do so even before Colbert does. Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers are back in their studios, but with limited audiences. Meanwhile, Comedy Central says “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” will continue broadcasting from Noah’s home a while longer.
WEINSTEIN’S EXTRADITION TO CALIFORNIA LIKELY DELAYED
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – A federal prison near Buffalo, New York – or a criminal trial in Los Angeles? For now, Harvey Weinstein wants to stay in western New York. His lawyer says there will be a delay in having the convicted ex-Hollywood mogul trundled to California to face rape and sexual assault charges. The lawyer says a hearing is set for next month to resolve paperwork issues. The transfer was to have taken place as early as next week. Weinstein has been in prison since last spring, after being convicted in New York City of rape and sexual assault. He faces similar charges in Los Angeles. Weinstein denies it all.
