Conan O’Brien Trains to Be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Stunt Double–Spoiler Alert: It’s an Epic Fail

Conan O’Brienmight want to reconsider his career goal of becoming a stunt double. 

The late-night host attempted to demonstrate his potential when he pitched himself to blockbuster star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Wednesday night’s Conan.

“I don’t see what you have that I don’t have,” the comedian told the actor. “You’re a good-looking guy…I clean up pretty nice. You’re a big guy…check me out.” 

It was clear O’Brien was overestimating himself just a touch. “I look at this and I’m like, I’m looking in a mirror,” the host continued. “Like a carnival mirror?” the action star retorted. 

Elton John Announces Two Cover Albums Featuring Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Ed Sheeran

Some of the biggest artists are celebrating Elton John‘s musical legacy with two albums: Revamp (Island Records) and Restoration (Universal Music Group Nashville), both out Apr. 6. They will celebrate John’s decades of hits, which he produced with songwriter Bernie Taupin.

Revamp features songs reimagined by Mary J. Blige, Alessia Cara, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Florence and the Machine, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Mumford and Sons, Pink and Logic, Q-Tip and Demi Lovato, Queens of the Stone Age, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. The album has a pop art cover, based on a Terry O’Neil photograph of John, and it was recreated in neon. “We have two completely different albums; Revamp being the pop one and Restoration being the country one. God, we have so many great artists doing our songs, it’s quite incredible,” John said in a statement. “On Revamp I wrote out a wish list of people that I would love and asked them,” he added. “To my surprise most of them said yes, and we have quite an astonishing eclectic crew.”

Restoration “was Bernie’s project,” John said, “and he’s a huge country fan.” Revamp “was more my project,” he added. “He came up with an astonishing list of country performers both new and legendary.” Restoration features country covers by Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash and Emmylou Harris, Cyrus, Vince Gill and Don Henley, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Brothers Osborne, Chris Stapleton, Rhonda Vincent and Dolly Parton, and Lee Ann Womack. “Because of our love of all kinds of music, we’re not stuck in one genre. From day one we borrowed from everything that’s good about American music—whether it’s blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock—everything got thrown in the mix. I think that’s why our music over the years has been so varied,” Taupin said. “It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it’s one as long as ours.”

What Did Scully Whisper to Mulder on The X-Files?

The X-Files just added another mystery to the pile. In “Nothing Lasts Forever,” the penultimate episode of The X-Files season 11, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) had a deeply personal conversation about where they stand, mainly in each other’s lives. At one point Scully leans in and whispers in Mulder’s ear.

“I don’t know if any God is listening, but I am standing right here,” Mulder told Scully. “And I am listening. Right beside you, all ears. That’s my choice.”

Then she whispered in his ear, pulled away and said, “That’s not my four-year-old self looking for a miracle,” she said. “That’s my leap of faith forward. And I’d like to do it together.”

Kathie Lee Gifford on Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby: “I Don’t Judge Them”

Kathie Lee Gifford has shown mercy towards Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby.

During Wednesday’s episode of Radio Andy, the Today host revealed she contacted both men after they were separately accused of sexual misconduct. 

Gifford told host Andy Cohen she’s had her own experiences with predators; however, she doesn’t hold all of her experiences with sexual misconduct at the same level.

“I personally, since I got into this business as a teenage girl, I have been sexually harassed, I have been sexually abused and I have been date raped—and don’t tell me they’re all the same cause they are not. They are not the same,” she said. “Unless you’ve been through it and you can say it’s the same, then fine. If it was the same to you, OK—not the same to me. And I don’t want to throw everyone on the same manure pile.” 

She then added, “Being a jerk is not the same as being a rapist—it just isn’t.”

Demi Lovato Celebrates 6 Years of Sobriety: How She Used Her Lowest Moments to Uplift Millions

“Go on and try to tear me down. I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper.”

As she has since publicly revealed, the former child star secretly spent her teenage years grappling with substance abuse, addiction, an eating disorder, depression and self-inflicted harm as she rose to fame on the Disney track.

Queen Elizabeth II Blesses Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Marriage–But Do We Detect Shade?

Queen Elizabeth II has given Prince Harry and Meghan Markle permission to get married—and just in the nick of time!

With the royal wedding just two months away, Her Majesty gave her official declaration to the couple’s marriage during a Mar. 14 Privy Council meeting at Buckingham Palace. The Queen used both Meghan’s and Harry’s full names in her decree.

“My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council,” Her Royal Highness declared.

The official notice of approval cited Parliament’s Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which stated “a person who (when the person marries) is one of the six persons next in the line of success to the Crown must obtain the consent of Her Majesty before marrying.”

However, did Her Majesty serve a side of shade with her decree? When The Queen gave her consent before Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot, she referred to the couple as “Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, K.G. and Our Trusty and Well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton”. 

Looks like there was no love for Meghan in this decree. However, the former Suits star is expected to receive the same high praise once the official handwritten documents are drawn.
