Elon Musk Shares New Family Photo of His and Grimes’ Son X Æ A-Xii – E! Online


Elon Musk is giving fans a glimpse into his life with Grimes and baby X Æ A-Xii.

On March 8, the Tesla Motors CEO took to his Twitter to share a photo of himself, his longtime girlfriend and their 10-month-old son.

In the photo—which he captioned, “Starbase, Texas”—the proud parents are both wearing sunglasses while the baby admired a colorful bouquet of flowers.

As for Starbase, the 49-year-old billionaire tweeted on March 2 that he’s “Creating the city of Starbase” near Boca Chica Village in Cameron County of Texas. This is also the location of his company Space X, in which he’s creating and will be launching the prototypes to the company’s Starship spacecraft. Hence his follow-up tweet, “From thence to Mars, and hence to Stars.”

Of course, the child—who’s name pronunciation is still unconfirmed—has already been exposed to all types of astronomical and galactic greatness.

In December, Grimes shared a photo of X Æ A-Xii in her Instagram Story where he appeared to be viewing a space-themed picture book. Who knows if the baby will follow in his dad’s Mars-bound footsteps, but the foundation is certainly there.

Natalie Barr flagged as replacement hours after Sunrise star announces shock departure


Speculation has already begun on who will replace Sunrise presenter Samantha Armytage after her shock exit from the morning television show.

Armytage has helmed the breakfast television program for eight years alongside veteran presenter David Koch, but announced live on air today that she would be stepping back from her prime time role to “take some time and calm things down”.

“(I want to) enjoy a bit of slow living and spend some time with my precious family and my husband and Banjo,” Armytage told listeners.

And while the dust might still be settling, it took just minutes for rumours to surface that Sunrise’s news anchor Natalie Barr would slide across the desk and step in for the 44-year-old.

TV Black Box are reporting that “trusted sources” have confirmed the WA native has been flagged as a replacement — a familiar face for viewers and a regular fill in for both Armytage and former Sunrise host Mel Doyle.

But viewers of the show have already chipped in with their own suggestions, with some calling for Doyle’s return to the show, after her exit in 2013 became the highest rating episode of the program that year.

Within a matter of minutes Armytage’s name was trending on Twitter, with some calling for the flagship Seven news program to replace Armytage with a woman of colour.

Wirlomin Noongar author Claire Coleman tweeted “I challenge @Sunriseon7 to replace Samantha Armytage with an Indigenous woman or woman of colour”.

Other names that have been floated are Angela Cox, Kylie Gillies and Mel McLaughlin — all Seven Network presenters.

Armytage’s teary announcement this morning triggered an outpouring of support for the media personality on social media and the Sunrise Instagram account, with Big Brother and Holey Moley star Angela Clancy writing that she would miss Armytage’s “hearty laugh”.

Married At First Sight: James Weir recaps episode 10


As Harry and Meghan’s tell-all with Oprah on Channel 10 threatens to steal Monday night’s TV ratings, Married At First Sight producers resort to cringe-worthy tactics by serving up the one thing those ex-royals can’t offer: awkward sex challenges with props.

Two car crashes, same timeslot. Only one of them has finger tonguing.

It’s up to you, Australia.

JAMES WEIR RECAPS: Read all the recaps here

JAMES WEIR RECAPS: MAFS wife’s X-rated sex claim

“I hope you’re not freaking out like, ‘Here she comes with her sex exercises’,” clinical sexologist Alessandra tries to calm the contestants, but mostly us.

Yes. This is indeed what we’re all thinking. And then a few seconds later, in she comes — with her sex exercises.

The first sexercise is called Eye Gazing.

“When I say gazing, I mean gazing — not staring,” she coaches Pat and Belinda.

They gaze at each other. Alessandra stares at them. And we stare at all of them, while grimacing. It’s as interesting as staring at people staring at each other. Bored with staring at these dorks, we pick up our phones to instead stare at all the secrets Harry and Meghan are being tricked into spilling.

Next up is The Melted Hug.

“I want you to feel like you’re melting into each other’s bodies. And get your groins a little closer,” she guides.

Pat and Belinda don’t melt right and it ends with the sex lady yelling, “Melt! Melt! Melt!”

These sex intimacy games are a little woo-woo and it’d probably be more helpful if the couples were taught exercises that can be integrated into everyday life. I’ve found the following have worked wonderfully in my own relationships.

Individual Pizzas

In this game, we both order our own individual pizzas and then eat them in separate rooms while watching different Netflix shows.

Pretend I’m Invisible

In this challenge, I come home from work and my partner doesn’t talk to me for at least two hours, even if we are in the same room.

That Sucks

This exercise will guarantee a happy relationship. It’s where I bitch about everyone I know while offering clearly one-sided versions of events and my partner just sits there and says, “Ugh, that sucks”.

All the other couples are given more weird challenges and we don’t know what this one is but we know it makes us uncomfortable and we’d rather be watching Harry and Meghan show Oprah their chicken coop.

We consider flipping the channel over to watch Oprah trick Meghan and Harry into thinking they’re best friends so they tell her all their secrets, but then a guy gets his finger tongued.

Fine. You win this time, producers. We’ll keep watching. But only because we know neither Harry nor Meghan are getting their fingers tongued.

But then we pick up the remote control to change the channel the moment Brett starts emitting a guttural moan.

“He’s making weird grunting sounds. That just makes my hymen re-seal,” Booka winces.

Same, Booka. SAME.

This is a formal warning. Brett better listen to his wife. And if he doesn’t?

“With ex-partners, I quite enjoy tying them up and giving them no control,” she declares as we cringe yet again.

She then adopts a Russian accent and enters the bedroom as a dominatrix before handcuffing and blindfolding her husband.

“Rule is … I am boss. You are maggot,” she grunts while spanking him with a leather riding crop.

The spanking continues as she mounts him. “In communist Russia, we do things different. We tickle ze butt. You like ze butt?”

We scream and start hitting the buttons on the remote control but, instead of changing the channel, we accidentally turn up the volume and all we hear is spanking and guttural moans and fake Russian accents.

After blacking out from terror, we wake up groggy to find Coco and Cam still pursuing their sorta-affair.

Finally, this show is crawling out of the gutter and getting back to more family-friendly content with a good ol’ fashioned affair.

“I’ve got respect for relationships and marriages. And it’s hard for me because I still kinda wanna keep that respect to Sam,” he says as he sneaks down to Coco’s apartment for another secret chat behind his wife’s back.

They sit so close together on the couch their knees touch and they stare into each other’s eyes as they carefully dance around all the things they want to say but can’t.

“It goes against both our morals,” Coco says. “Cam did move back in with Sam and it’s either going to move their relationship along and open things up between them … or it may speed along the dissolving of their relationship. We’ll see what the future holds.”

And if we were to predict the future?

They’ll be finger-tonguing each other any day now.

Newlywed Sunrise host Samantha Armytage announces she is leaving the show to ‘find some peace’


Newlywed Sunrise host Samantha Armytage has announced her shock departure from Sunrise after eight years.

Just months after marrying her partner Richard Lavender, Armytage said it was time for the “sun to set” on her time on the popular morning show.

“I have always been brave and fearless in my career and this decision is no different,” the 44-year-old said.

“I want to take a break and find some peace and calm. I go out of this job at a time of my own choosing and on top of the ratings, which not many people on television can say they do. I cannot thank you all enough for having me in your lounge rooms all these years.”

Armytage will remain at the network, with new projects to be announced at a later stage. In a statement today, Seven said Armytage’s decision was made with the “full support” of the network

Co-host David Koch, who has shared the couch with her during her entire Sunrise stint, said it was time for her to “put herself” and her new husband first.

“Ever since Sam joined Sunrise eight years ago, she has been the rock of the program and always led from the front,” he said.

“Sam’s humour, work ethic and team first values have been an inspiration to us all. But now it’s time for Sam to put herself and Rich first and we couldn’t be happier for, or more supportive of, them both.”

Seven West Media chief executive officer James Warburton said he was sad to see Armytage leave the show but the company understood and supported her decision to focus on her family.

“We wish Sam nothing but the very best for her break and look forward to announcing some exciting new projects for her in late 2021 and into 2022,” he said.

It comes just days after Armytage announced she was hosting her own podcast “Something to Talk About with Samantha Armytage”.

The podcast is in collaboration with Stellar magazine, the same publication the Seven personality writes a weekly column for.

Armytage married Lavender, in an inmate ceremony at the businessman’s 40 hectare property in the Southern Highlands in NSW on New Year’s Eve.

Network director of news and public affairs Craig McPherson and Sunrise executive producer Michael Pell paid tribute to Armytage’s good humour.

“There really is no one else like her,” Mr Pell said.

Married At First Sight: James Weir recaps episode 9


Experts are forced to intervene on Sunday night’s Married At First Sight when a husband launches a nasty public spray at his wife and mocks her in front of the entire group before making a shock decision that’s more confusing than his haircut.

It’s the first commitment ceremony of the season. You know the drill. Each couple sits on a couch in front of the experts as all their toxic behaviour from the past week is dredged up in order to stoke an argument for our viewing pleasuring.

Each person in the couple then has to write “stay” or “leave” on a flash card and hold it up. If one person writes “leave” but the other writes “stay”, the person who wants to escape is instead held captive in the marriage against their will for another week and then we cheer and yell, “Ya trapped!”

JAMES WEIR RECAPS: Read all the recaps here

JAMES WEIR RECAPS: Tricked: MAFS star slept with married ex

The first person to get trapped tonight is one half of the elderly couple. It has honestly been a week from hell for Russell. Beth stole his side of the bed and now he insists on sleeping on the couch. He’s also fed up with all those stupid fruits and vegetables she eats.

He decides to leave but Beth chooses to stay. Ya trapped! Enjoy your salad, Russel.

Meanwhile, producers are still trying their hardest to foreshadow a pending affair between Cam and Coco.

“I don’t know whether to stay and see if it improves with Sam … or stay and get to know Coco. It’s definitely a tough decision,” Cam says.

Coco feels the same.

“Snack attack! I’ll hit that vending machine,” she pitches another rock solid catchphrase.

Cam’s wife Sam is exhausted with her crumbling marriage and decides she wants out. It’s never gonna work — and Cam agrees. But if he leaves, he won’t be around for Coco to … hit his … vending machine?

“For me, I don’t think it’s enough time,” he informs his wife in front of the experts. “I wanna at least show you who I am. And I wanna get to know you (*cough* Coco). If it’s not there, it’s not there. But at least we know who we are as people.”

Hey Sam, ya trapped! We cut immediately to Coco and she’s dreaming about what snack she’s gonna buy from the vendo.

Next up is Jake and The Sasshole.

“I have a lot of questions for the experts,” The Sasshole snips. “Especially about what I asked for and what I received.

Basically, The Sasshole’s a total Karen who has lost her receipt and is now demanding to speak to the manager.

Jake spills to the experts about how The Sasshole has been a big meanie all week — insulting and criticising him, calling him boring and saying he “sucks the life” out of her.

It’s clear the experts are appalled at the alleged behaviour, so The Sasshole steps in to clear things up by accusing her husband yet again of making her feel like sex-on-a-stick or a chip-on-a-stick or whatever. Her bad attitude is marring the joyous reputation of all stick-based novelty products.

“What I find with Jake is he’s trying to be more than what he is to impress me,” she informs us. “He told me he was a Capricorn, it’s one of the first conversations we had. And I said, ‘Oh, OK, you’re into astrology?’ And he said, ‘No, I thought you might be’.”

She leaves a long pause, waiting for us to react but we don’t understand what any of this means.

John Aiken decides it’s time to sass The Sasshole.

“Well I’ll tell you where I’m at. I’ve listened to this. I’ve heard this. And I’m exhausted,” he declares, trying very hard to create a dramatic moment that can be used in the promo.

“There are two people on the couch in front of me, and only one of them is warm and empathetic.”

Rebecca smiles to herself, satisfied that someone is finally standing up for her.

“Rebecca, it’s not you,” John snaps.

“Rebecca, your standards are so unrelenting that no man — not Jake, not anybody — is gonna measure up to that,” John continues.

Again, she smiles — thinking John just paid her a beautiful compliment.

But he swiftly slaps her down again. “I can tell you, that’s not gonna work in a relationship.”

They both choose to stay even though we all know Jake will never get to play with her sex sticks.

Speaking of which, Alana has something to share about her relationship with Jason.

“The sex is good,” she shares. “When we have sex, Jason will always make me c*m as well. It’s actually a huge deal for me.”

Um. Congratulations?

Two people who won’t be achieving this milestone are Coco and Sam. We’re forced to rehash all the details we already know and Coco rattles off the laundry list of insults that have been hurled her way.

“I’ve been told I’m not cool, I’m not funny, my one-liners are too corny, I’m too loud, my body’s not attractive to him. It’s just constant put-downs,” she tells the experts as Sam makes faces and mumbles under his breath.

“Oh, wow. Everyday? Everyday, I’m putting you down? Wow. Because you say the most ridiculous, corny one-liners that would make anyone cringe. (That means) I’m putting you down? Seriously,” he spits at her.

“It’s a load of absolute rubbish. I find her to be too much, she’s too full on. I can’t remember one time I’ve put her down or been nasty.”

The experts can’t believe the spray they’re witnessing and intervene.

“I’m sorry, I’ve gotta jump in here. Do you have an awareness of how your body language comes across?” Mel Schilling asks.

Sam fires up more. “Well I feel like I’m being attacked here!”

The rest of the contestants gasp and then Bryce starts heckling from the other side of the room. “Sam, no offence but, just from our point of view here, you sound like a d**khead.”

Sam doubles down — nay, TRIPLES down — and declares he has never once uttered a negative word about his wife.

Schilling throws him of balance with one big question. “Are you attracted to her?”

Sam pauses and huffs. “Yes.”

The statement goes against everything he has said about Coco and her body. She wants out and raises her decision card, hoping to wrap this up — even if it means never getting to buy snacks at Cam’s vending machine.

But then Sam reveals his own card. The room gasps. He’s choosing to stay.

We regret to inform you, Coco, but ya trapped!

Sam’s still muttering to himself and furiously walks out of the warehouse.

“I can’t speak. This is out of control. I’ve always been kind and nice to Coco,” he fumes.

To quote Linda Reynolds, he’s a lying cow.

These NBA Romances Will Have You Ready to Shoot Your Shot at Love – E! Online


Just a few years removed from his career at Butler University, the forward, then with the Utah Jazz, shot his shot, asking recent high school grad Robyn to be his bride on Christmas Eve 2013. Married the following May, the athletes—she was a standout volleyball player at her Indiana high school—have steadily been putting together their own squad ever since. 

Son Theo joined daughters Bernie, 5, Charlie, 4, and Nora, 2, last September while Gordon was battling it out in the bubble with the Boston Celtics. And despite having to play zone with all their little ones, the Charlotte-based duo haven’t ruled out bringing on more teammates. “Bernie is sweet and gentle, Charlie is always doing things on her own time and beats to her own drum, Nora makes sure Theo knows she’s the boss and has no fear at all, and Theo is pretty unbothered and chill (so far),” she detailed in a December post. “This is what 4 kids 5 and under looks like (for us)… @gordonhayward do you want more kids?”

Poet Gorman says she was racially profiled


Amanda Gorman, the 22-year-old poet who captured hearts at the inauguration of US President Joe Biden, says she was followed home by a security guard who demanded to know where she lived because she “looked suspicious”.

She says the incident shows the “reality of black girls” in America, where you’re an icon one day and a threat the next.

“A security guard tailed me on my walk home tonight. He demanded if I lived there because ‘you look suspicious’,” Gorman wrote on Twitter on Friday.

“I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building. He left, no apology.

“This is the reality of black girls: One day you’re called an icon, the next day, a threat.”

Gorman, America’s youngest inaugural poet, lives in Los Angeles but did not specify where the encounter took place.

The post was met with thousands of messages of support on Twitter and Instagram.

She followed up her post with a second comment that said: “In a sense, he was right”.

“I AM A THREAT: a threat to injustice, to inequality, to ignorance,” she said.

“Anyone who speaks the truth and walks with hope is an obvious and fatal danger to the powers that be. A threat and proud.”

Gorman became an instant sensation pm January 20 when she recited her poem, The Hill We Climb, at Biden’s swearing-in.

Prince Harry nicknamed ‘the hostage’ as report states Meghan ‘wanted drama from the start’


Staff nicknamed Prince Harry “the Hostage” ahead of his wedding to Meghan Markle, insiders have claimed today.

Claims have now surfaced the Duchess of Sussex was “constantly looking” for drama – despite palace insiders insisting they had bent over backwards to accommodate her.

And the tensions between the couple and staff continued to bubble before the Duke of Sussex reportedly yelled “what Meghan wants, Meghan gets” in the lead up to their 2018 wedding ceremony.

RELATED: Meghan’s Suits co-star speaks out

The Telegraph today reported Prince Harry had been given the nickname “the hostage”.

The 36-year-old is claimed to have been left furious that the tiara Meghan had planned on wearing for the wedding could not be produced for an unscheduled hair appointment.

The tiara clash with the Queen’s closest aide Angela Kelly is said to have sparked words for Harry from the monarch herself.

One source told The Telegraph: “Angela told Harry it was priceless and couldn’t suddenly be handed over at short notice.

“He was furious and shouted: ‘What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.’ Suffice to say it didn’t go down too well.”

It was further claimed Meghan had been given first choice from the Crown Jewels – but that she had still been unhappy.

The insider claimed: “They insisted that they had the same inflation-adjusted budget for the wedding as William and Kate – she got the choir she wanted, the dress, the carriage procession, the tiara – she got everything she wanted but it still wasn’t enough.

“She was constantly looking for reasons to say she had been deprived. Also, she wanted drama from the very beginning.”

Harry and Meghan tied the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in 2018 – with The Telegraph claiming the lead up to the wedding was “hugely stressful” for everyone involved.

Just one report from the big day includes claims that the couple changed their song 12 times before they were happy with the arrangement of “Stand By Me”.

The couple were serenaded by Ben E Kings classic love song Stand By Me as they walked down the aisle together after tying the knot.

The string of claims emerged this week as the couple get set to have their tell-all interview with Oprah aired tomorrow.

The Royal Family is braced for more bombshell claims in Monday’s broadcast amid an escalating war of words.

And aides said the Queen has not been given an advance copy of Harry and Meghan’s chat with Oprah Winfrey – instead “everyone will watch at the same time”.

The Duchess of Sussex accused Buckingham Palace of spreading lies about her, plunging the family into its worst crisis in decades.

Senior Royals have reportedly urged for “calm amid the storm” ahead of the bombshell interview which will be aired this weekend.

The interview, conducted by talk-show powerhouse Oprah Winfrey, will be aired on CBS in the US on Sunday night, and then in the UK on ITV on Monday.

This week, reports were published claiming that Meghan had “bullied” several former staff members at Kensington Palace.

A source told The Times newspaper the Duchess of Sussex drove two personal assistants out of the household and undermined the confidence of a third.

The Queen launched a probe into the allegations of bullying, with the Palace releasing a statement saying they were “very concerned” at claims the Duchess bullied staff.

The Sun Online has approached the palace and Sussexes for comment.

Every Time 2021 Grammy Nominee Billie Eilish Set Her Own Fashion Rules – E! Online


Billie Eilish is no stranger to living by the beat of her own drum.

The singer unwittingly broke into the music scene in 2016. At just 13, she and older brother Finneas wrote and produced “Ocean Eyes,” which was only shared to Soundcloud at the request of Billie’s dance teacher because he wanted to choreograph a routine to it. But when the siblings woke up the next day, “Ocean Eyes” had gone viral and within months Billie was signed to Interscope Records. 

Fast forward to 2021 and Billie, now 19, is a bonafide pop star gearing up for her second Grammy Awards.

Come Sunday, March 14, she stands to add four more awards to her already impressive collection. At last year’s ceremony, Billie swept the four most major categories, making her the first female and second-ever artist to win Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist in the same night. (For the record, the teen also took home Best Pop Vocal Album.)
