Jon Bon Jovi Is Not Dead.

An untrue news release announcing the death of Jon Bon Jovi went wild online today, and before you know it, Bon Jovi had joined the ranks of celebrities who’ve been inaccurately pronounced dead on Twitter. Here’s what the first ‘news release’ said, and other stars who got falsely killed off on the web.

Oddly enough, the release was surprisingly specific about the details, but named just one source, citing others that wished to remain anonymous. (Not that uncommon in some news stories, but fairly unorthodox when the news is about a public figure’s death, and the source named is not a family member.)

The initial report was suspicious not only based on the sourcing, but also the poor writing structure, reading: “paramedics found him in a coma at his Empress Hotel, city and law enforcement of Asbury Park, NJ sources told The Times after World Christmas Tour concert on The Bamboozle Festival,North Beach Asbury Park.” Now that’s a little clumsy in the writing department.

It went on to name New Jersey Fire Department-First Aid Captain Douglas Gray… saying that when paramedics responded to a 911 call from the home, Bon Jovi was not breathing. But as we know now, that wasn’t true. (In some early digging, I’ve been unable to find an actual Douglas Gray with the fire department, although that doesn’t mean there isn’t one out there. Nor does it mean he actually said these things.)

Once the story went viral, Bon Jovi turned to Facebook (and eventually, Twitter) to set the record straight, and confirm his heart rate was set to ‘alive.’ At 7:02 pm he quipped: “‘Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey’ -jbj

He’s got plenty of witnesses to his health… he’s reportedly appearing at a charity event tonight.

If it’s any consolation, Jon Bon Jovi has a reminder of how many fans he has… they’ve been posting and tweeting like crazy today.

Bon Jovi is by no means the first celeb to be killed off on Twitter… everyone from Justin Bieber to Lindsay Lohan have been rumored dead via tweet. Even more famously, Jim Carrey and Christian Slater were both ‘announced’ dead on Twitter, oddly enough, both from snowboarding accidents. Thankfully, all of them are alive and well.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

Ya like my hair ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
