Jesse Jackson Reveals Parkinson's Disease Diagnosis

1 hour ago

Rev. Jesse Jackson has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

The 76-year-old minister and civil rights activist shared the news on social media on Friday, expressing that it's been "painful" for him to recognize the effects of his diagnosis.

"Throughout my career of service, God has kept me in the embrace of his loving arms, and protected me and my family from dangers, seen and unseen,” Jackson wrote. "Now in the latter years of my life, at 76 years old, I find it increasingly difficult to perform routine tasks, and getting around is more of a challenge. My family and I began to notice changes about three years ago."

He added that the disease is not a "stop sign" for him, rather a signal that he must make lifestyle changes and focus on his health.

The Full House star took to Facebook on Friday to share a lengthy post about his "dearest, most important and most inspiring friends" who died the day before.

"I told an associate of mine that one of my dearest, most important and most inspiring friends had passed away yesterday. And he said, 'So sorry, life can be crappy,'" Stamos wrote alongside two pictures of the two of them. "But life wasn’t crappy to the person I called 'Girlfriend' and who called me 'Boyfriend' - Paula Haynes. Miss Paula Haynes, I also called her. Sure, she was dealt a tough hand at birth -- but in life, she made the very most of that hand and lived more than most of us. We met over 30 years ago - June, 1986. (I know this cause she’d remind me every year)."

Glenn Close Emotionally Declares If Christopher Reeve Was Alive, Robin Williams 'Would Be Too'

2 hours ago

Glenn Close says that Christopher Reeve and Robin Williams' friendship was so strong that she believes if the Superman star was still alive, he could have saved Williams. 

The 70-year-old actress got emotional while delivering a touching speech at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation's annual "A Magical Evening" Gala in New York City on Thursday, where she reflected on the late actors and her friendship with them both. 

"My first connection to Christopher Reeve was through Robin Williams, when we were shooting The World According to Garp. It was the summer of 1982, when we were filming on Fishers Island," Close began. "On Friday evenings, Chris would literally swoop in, piloting his own plane, scoop Robin up, and away they would fly for the weekend. On Sunday, late afternoon, Chris would swoop back in and deliver Robin back -- I have to say a little worse for wear."

"Those were the heady days for them both," she continued »

'American Idol': Why the New Judges 'Never' Want You to Audition With Their Songs

3 hours ago

Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan are excited to help uncover undiscovered talent. Hearing their own music over again... not so much.

Et's Sophie Schillaci talked to the new American Idol judges in Los Angeles, where they all agreed on the biggest "don't" for Idol hopefuls: singing one of their songs.

"Never," the judges resoundingly agree. Richie adds, "Don't do it."

"Because here is the thing -- we have heard those songs so many times day in and day out," Perry explains, "And God bless... I love my songs, I am so grateful for them ... but I don't need to hear them again."

"There's a plug for the songs," Richie laughs.

Ben Barnes on 'The Punisher,' Finally Joining the Marvel Universe and Not Glorifying Gun Violence (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

"What is a Ragnarok?" Ben Barnes suddenly considers. "I don't know what a Ragnarok is."

We're discussing the amusing happenstance of his new series, The Punisher, arriving on Netflix at the same time Thor: Ragnarok is the No. 1 movie in theaters, two corners of the Marvel universe that could not be more different. The former is a gritty melodrama that follows Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle, a one-time Army man-turned-revenge-seeking antihero; the latter is a groovy space opera full of idiosyncratic punchlines and talking rock monsters. Ragnarok, I tell him, refers to the "End of Everything," the total annihilation of Asgard at the hands of the Goddess of Death and a giant fire demon. "Well," Barnes says. "That sounds quite scary."

Perhaps Marvel's latest offerings do share bit in common, but you won't find any cosmic Vikings or green, rage monsters on The Punisher. "We're not dealing with everything that goes along with having characters with superpowers »

Jay-Z Condemns Meek Mill's Probation Sentencing in Powerful Op-Ed

6 hours ago

Jay-Z continues to be a vocal advocate for Meek Mill and criminal justice reform at large.

Last week, Mill was sentenced to two to four years behind bars by a Philadelphia probation judge, charged with violating his probation after a 2009 drug and gun case. Jay-Z penned an op-ed for The New York Times on Friday, making an impassioned case for what the 4:44 rapper sees as deep flaws and racial inequities with the probation process in the American justice system.

"Meek was around 19 when he was convicted on charges relating to drug and gun possession, and he served an eight-month sentence," the 47-year-old rapper points out. "Now he’s 30, so he has been on probation for basically his entire adult life. For about a decade, he’s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside."
