The egg that broke Kylie Jenner‘s record for most-liked Instagram post was the brainchild of a guy with a family of Internet sensations, but he ain’t down with Kylie’s fam of attention-grabbers.
We got Supreme Patty — idol of 6.2 million IG followers — leaving Poppy in West Hollywood Monday night, with a giant picture of world_record_egg … the Instagram account that smashed the record for likes this week, more than doubling Kylie’s 18.5 million likes on the first photo of Stormi.
Queen guitarist Brian May is here to make you super pumped about outer space and science, because he just dropped a theme song for NASA’s New Horizons mission … and it rocks!
Brian’s famous for playing lead guitar for the classic rock band, but he’s also an astrophysicist who’s been working with NASA’s New Horizons team as it sends a probe to the outer reaches of our solar system … and he’s combined his two passions to create a mission anthem that’s cooler than Pluto!
Brian dropped the New Horizons tribute song on New Year’s Eve, coinciding with the NASA spacecraft reaching Ultima Thule in the icy Kuiper belt … and we gotta say, the track stacks up pretty well to Queen’s soundtrack for “Flash Gordon.”
As for the story behind the song … Brian was reportedly reluctant to work his rock star magic when a New Horizons colleague asked him to write a song for the mission, because Brian felt it was almost impossible to rhyme with Ultima Thule.
Brian says he eventually started hearing music in his head sounding like “an object plummeting through space” and his creative juices started flowing and the song was born.
We’re guessing Freddie Mercury would’ve been down with the space-themed jam too.
Loretta Powell — known for representing the U.S. in the 1959 Miss World pageant — came home one day to find her tenant throwing her stuff out and renovating the place … after allegedly scamming her out of the deed to her property.
The story’s pretty crazy, but law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Powell — now in her late 80s — met a man named David Lee Jones in 2014 while getting some tests at the hospital, and soon afterward he began renting a room she had available in her L.A.-area home.
Three years later in July 2017, Loretta called police on Jones, claiming he was slowly destroying the house she built and lived in for many years … and she didn’t know how to stop him.
We’re told cops questioned Jones, who claimed he owned the $ 1.9 million home because Loretta signed it over to him, and turns out he was right — but allegedly because he got her to sign the paperwork after she had hip surgery in 2016 while she was doped up on morphine.
Our sources say cops arrested Jones the next day, and he was ultimately charged with theft from elder, a felony. He’s also facing a charge of vandalism of property worth more than $ 400.
And, get this — cops discovered Lee was a man of many names, using a handful of aliases over the years.
Travis Scott doesn’t have to justify his decision to perform at the Super Bowl to anyone — his only goal should be to put on a hip-hop show for the ages … so says Yung Joc.
The Atlanta rapper’s going to bat for Trav, who’s taking some heat from peers — like Meek Mill — for opting to join Maroon 5 for the halftime show in February. Meek thinks it’s beneath Travis … plus, it breaks the NFL boycott some celebs are organizing in support of Colin Kaepernick.
But, YJ points out the stage doesn’t get any bigger than the SB, and the opportunity for Scott is not only too big to pass up … but it can do a lot of good for the hip-hop culture.
We broke the story … the “SICKO MODE” rapper’s decision to take the halftime gig is a huge win for the NFL as he’s one of the hottest acts in music right now. The league and Maroon 5 are still in talks to add more artists … possibly Cardi B or Big Boi.
And, if landing Travis helps them attract Atlanta hip-hop artists — where the Super Bowl’s being held — Yung Joc’s cool with that too.
Pete Davidson thinks the world is against him, and not just internet trolls. He believes even his friends and colleagues don’t care if he lives or dies … even though that’s not the case.
Sources close to Pete tell us he’s reached out to people in his life and at times lashed out, claiming they were ignoring him and his struggles, and if he did end his life … they wouldn’t care.
Now it’s clear what Machine Gun Kelly was saying when he told us it was a really “weird time” for Pete and those around him.
We’re told Pete has reached out to those in his circle, including co-workers at “SNL,” asking for help, but at the same time putting up a wall and even accusing them of ignoring his pain.
As we reported, Ariana Grande was so concerned after Pete posted what seemed like a suicide threat over the weekend she rushed to 30 Rock to offer him comfort, but he turned her away and even had security block her.
Our sources say Pete’s friends have expressed their love for him and they’re doing whatever they can to offer him support, but it doesn’t seem to be working.
