  • Paul Stanley from Kiss and Phil Anselmo of Pantera made their predictions for this weekend’s big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.

    Noted fight fan Anselmo, who used to write a column for Boxing Insider gave UFC champion McGregor "zero chance" to defeat Floyd Mayweather in a straight-up boxing match. He said, "It’s going to be a one-sided fight, with Floyd carrying him for as long as he possibly can.…Mayweather by a landslide, and he can knock McGregor out anytime he wants."

    Stanley also favors Mayweather, and said: "I think people are expecting more of a fight than they might get. You have to remember Floyd Mayweather is a fighter who knows how to punch and get away. The idea of them going toe-to-toe, I think, is a fantasy. Sometimes people are disappointed by Mayweather’s performance. But he’s a technician. The idea that they’re gonna go in and see who can knock the other out — I don’t think that’s in the cards, although I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody winds up on the mat."

    The big fight is on Pay-Per-View Saturday (Aug. 26) at 9pm ET.

  • Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said in a new interview with Jam! Music that he did not mean to imply that the British supergroup was going to quit after completing the tour cycle for its recent album A Head Full Of Dreams and companion EP Kaleidoscope. Martin explained, "Really what I said was that this album and the EP and this tour marked the end of a chapter. It’s our seventh album and it’s the end of that first stage of the band. I think what the future holds is us doing things slightly differently and trying to create music in ways that is graceful and honest. But we’re still just trying to figure it all out -- the next phase, and what that will be."

    • Martin did tell Apple Music in 2016, "I’d be surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album. I just feel like we’re right where we’re supposed to be right now. I meant what I said to you a couple of years ago, I feel like this is a closing chapter of something."
    • Then again, the singer has been hinting that every LP will be its last since at least 2002: "The way I look at it is that we could die at any point, you know? Life to me seems very fragile and there's no point in saving songs for your 15th record because you might never get to your 15th record. We won't make another record unless it's better." .
    • Asked if he ever imagined Coldplay filling stadiums when the band released its debut album Parachutes 17 years ago, Martin said, "No, and I think that one of the reasons why we’re really loving this tour so much is that we’re really grateful for everything. We’re still the same band, and we’re able to remember the shows when there was no one there . . . when I look back all I can think is, ‘Wow, I never thought we’d ever get to this place.’"

  • The surviving members of Linkin Park have released a statement thanking fans for their support and announcing plans for a tribute event for their late singer, Chester Bennington, who hung himself to death on July 20th at the age of 41. The statement read:

    "Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time.

    "The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park.

    "We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester's memory, and look forward to sharing details with you soon.

    "Peace and love."

    • Bennington's private funeral service took place on July 29th near his home in Palos Verdes, California. It was attended by 500 guests, including members of all three bands Bennington sang in: Linkin Park, Stone Temple Pilots and Dead By Sunrise.
    • Investigators reportedly found no illegal drugs or prescription drugs while searching Bennington's home following his passing, although a partially consumed bottle of alcohol was found in the bedroom where the singer's body was discovered.
    • It will not be clear until a toxicology report is released whether Bennington had any drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
    • Countless fans and musicians have shared their own tributes to Bennington, who left behind a wife and six children, in the weeks since his passing.

  • William Patrick Corgan, also known as Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, will release his second solo album, titled Ogilala, on October 13th. The disc was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded in Malibu, California, with Corgan mainly playing acoustic guitar and piano on most of the songs.

    Corgan said about the project, "For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I'd pen for whatever band was something I couldn't explain. And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time or era. The lone difference on songs for Ogilala is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment. Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick's hands to take the music wherever he'd like."

    • Corgan, who is now officially going by his full name, also released the album's first track, "Aeronaut."
    • The full album will be available digitally, on CD and on 180-gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition blue vinyl LP will be available directly from Corgan's webstore and a limited edition pink vinyl will be available at select indie retailers.
    • Corgan will also embark on a solo acoustic North American tour that kicks off on October 14th in Brooklyn, New York and wraps up on November 11th in Los Angeles. Each night's show will consist of two sets, with Corgan playing songs from Ogilala in the first and material from across his entire career in the second.

  • Fans of U2 are receiving some interesting mail. It's all connected to a new song called "Blackout" and the upcoming album Songs of Experience. Fan site, @U2 reports that several fans received a letter in the mail containing text referencing William Blake’s Songs Of Innocence And Experience, with a super-imposed silhouette of Bono’s son and Edge’s daughter revealing the words: "Blackout … It’s clear who you are." And at the bottom of the page, it reads "U2 will announce _____ on ______," with the title and date blacked out. The message was so cryptic and unexpected that some fans admitted throwing it away thinking it was "junk mail."

MARK WAHLBERG NAMED HIGHEST-PAID MALE ACTOR BY 'FORBES'

Transformers: The Last Knight star Mark Wahlberg has beat out Dwayne Johnson for top billing on Forbes’ highest-paid actor list. He reportedly lands on top thanks to Transformers and Daddy’s Home 2. Last year, the rapper formerly known as Marky Mark brought home a jaw-dropping $68 million, besting The Rock, who raked in a still-astounding $65 million. Coming in third is Johnson’s The Fate of the Furious co-star Vin Diesel, with $54.5 million. Rounding out the top five is Adam Sandler, at No. 4 with $50.5 million and Jackie Chan with $49 million. The top 10 male actors banked a total $488.5 million, almost three times that of their female counterparts, who brought in $172.5 million. Even more striking, Hollywood’s 14 highest-paid actors all make more than Hollywood’s top-paid actress, the Oscar-winning Emma Stone, who pulled in $26 million last year. One-fifth of this year’s list is comprised of newcomers: Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. Hemsworth, Renner and Ruffalo have the Avengers movies to thank for their hauls.

KRISTEN STEWART AND STELLA MAXWELL LAWYER UP IN NUDE PHOTO HACK

Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell are demanding through their lawyer that several websites take down nude photos of them. TMZ reports that Stewart’s lawyer Scott Whitehead is challenging the websites that put up what they say are hacked photos of the stars. Websites have also reportedly posted nude snaps of Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn, Katharine McPhee and Miley Cyrus. The nude selfies of the stars show them in poses by themselves and in some cases, in sexual positions. Lawyers for Woods, Vonn, McPhee and Cyrus are also rumored to be reaching out the websites to have the photos taken down. Vonn is the only star who has spoken out publicly about the hack, calling it a "despicable invasion of privacy." In a statement to People, her rep said, "Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests. She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law." The photos of Vonn include shots she and Woods sent to each other while they were dating. They broke up in 2015. In April, Cyrus was also hacked, but these shots are new. Maxwell happens to appear in a few of these photos as well. (They briefly dated). Whitehead told TMZ that the publishing of personal photos is a violation of copyright laws. Other recent victims of nude photo hacks include Sarah Hyland, Amanda Seyfried and Lucy Hale. Three years ago, Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Upton were among the victims of a major iCloud photo hack dubbed the Fappening. Approximately 500 stolen photos were posted on 4chan and other sites around the Internet. Lawrence told Vanity Fair at the time that she looked at the incident as a "sex crime," adding: "I can’t even describe to anybody what it feels like to have my naked body shoot across the world like a news flash against my will. It just makes me feel like a piece of meat that’s being passed around for a profit."

CELEBRITY GOSSIP

SCARLETT JOHANSSON DEBUTS MASSIVE BACK TATTOO: Scarlett Johansson was photographed sporting some serious ink while filming her latest movie in Atlanta, Avengers: Infinity War. The tattoo features a large floral print design and takes up quite a bit of real estate between her shoulder blades. Johansson is no stranger to tattoos: she has a lamb design tattooed under her right shoulder blade, a horseshoe on her ribcage, a rising sun on her left forearm and two interlocking circles on her right ankle. It’s unclear whether this tattoo is permanent, or if it’s a temporary tat related to her dual role in the Avengers movie as Natasha Romanoff and Black Widow. IAN SOMERHALDER IN AWE OF WIFE NIKKI REED AFTER DAUGHTER’S BIRTH: Ian Somerhalder is gushing about his wife Nikki Reed after the pair welcomed daughter Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder into the world on July 25th.

You are briefly napping on the other side of the room after being an amazing mom all night so you'll read this when you wake... seeing these images reminds me of those amazing 9 months that you sacrificed your whole being to grow our little one. The kindness, the beauty and organic nature of these photos makes me so very proud. You brought such fun and such power into our lives being pregnant but you literally brought the word sexy into pregnancy, we all see it. Thank you for being my partner in this life and thank you for inspiring not just me but all others who read, hear or see what your soul gives us."

CHRISTINA EL MOUSSA OPENS UP ABOUT DIVORCE: In a revealing new interview with Good Housekeeping, Flip or Flop’s Christina El Moussa discusses her divorce and the flak she gets for being a so-called bad mom. She tells GH that she was particularly hurt by a commenter who wrote: "Wow!! A c-section and bottle feeding?? Should have just got a cat you deadbeat fake. @tarekandchristina you are disgusting. This is why you had to struggle for another one." She tells GH: "That was an emergency C-section, and I pushed for eight hours…I think most people see me as a glamorous type of person, and at the end of the day, I'm more just a low-key mom." Christina also got a lot of heat after splitting from her Flip or Flop co-host and husband Tarek El Moussa in 2016. But she’s just trying to move forward and stay positive: "Tarek and I are still filming Flip or Flop, and #1 we have the kids, so at the end of the day I just want to be positive and not think about anything else." Are you able to stay upbeat during times of personal stress? JAMIE OTIS AND DOUG HEHNER WELCOME DAUGHTER: Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner welcomed daughter Henley Grace Hehner on Tuesday, August 22nd. She was born at 5:24 a.m. and weights 8 pounds, 2 ounces. "Mommy and baby are doing well and Daddy is in pure bliss," her rep tells People.

AMY SCHUMER ASKED NETFLIX FOR MORE MONEY AFTER LEARNING WHAT ROCK & CHAPPELLE GOT

Amy Schumer refused to stand idly by when she realized that her male counterparts were making more money than she was for essentially the same work. Schumer went to Netflix and renegotiated her salary once she learned that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were making $20 million each for their routines. Schumer signed a deal to make $11 million for a stand-up show dubbed "The Leather Special," according to Variety. The special, which aired in March, was taped after her spike in popularity, thanks in part to an Emmy for Inside Amy Schumer and her starring role in Trainwreck. When she returned to the streaming giant and argued that she deserved the same salary, she was able to negotiate a much higher rate, insiders tell Variety, but precise numbers were not named. Schumer isn’t the only female star demanding more. After the Sony hack revealed that Chris Hemsworth was getting paid more than costar Charlize Theron in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, she reportedly added $10 million to her salary. Emmy Rossum also negotiated a better deal when she asked to paid as much as her fellow Shameless costar, William H. Macy.
