Celebrity Scoop – 10/06/2020


Ed Sheeran was once told that he’d never make it in the music industry unless he dyed his hair.  

His manager, Stuart Camp, told the Straight Up podcast that his previous manager dropped him because “he wasn’t going anywhere.”
Camp said, “He had to drop the looping pedal, dye his hair black and give up the rapping.”

Fortunately, Sheeran stayed true to who he was and continues to put out new music.  According to Camp, the “Castle On The Hill” singer has been recording new material and will probably put out a record at this time next year.  


Miley Cyrus will star in her own version of the MTV Unplugged series.  

According to a press release, Cyrus will perform stripped-down versions of her songs, including the new single “Midnight Sky”, in her backyard in Los Angeles.  The “Younger Now” singer is also expected to present covers of Pearl Jam, The Cardigans and “Gimme More” by Britney Spears.

MTV Unplugged Presents “Miley Cyrus Backyard Sessions” will air on MTV on Friday, October 16th at 7:00 p.m. ET exclusively in the US.

TORI SPELLING TALKS EYE CONTACT: After Jessica Alba revealed that she was asked to not make eye contact when she guest-starred on Beverly Hills, 90210, series alums Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling say it simply isn’t true. On their podcast 9021OMG, Garth recalls that she had scenes with Alba. “Like, if anybody was, you know, didn’t want to have their eyes looked into, it would have been me,” the 48-year-old actress said. “But, I don’t remember because I have the world’s worst memory.” Spelling then wondered if there was some “memo that was, like, going around from the producers or the ADs and we didn’t even know.” Garth added: “I only have, from the vague memories I have of working with her, I only remember her being super talented. She was very young. She was really sweet, and it does not surprise me that she’s gone on to be so successful.”


Taraji P. Henson is working on a new project focused on mental health. The 50-year-old Empire star is hosting a new Facebook Watch talk show, titled Peace of Mind With Taraji. Production will begin later this year. 

She will co-host with her longtime best friend, Tracie Jade Jenkins. The show will “shine a spotlight on the challenging mental health issues facing us today – particularly of those in the Black community,” according to the press release.

The show is part of Facebook’s push to support World Mental Health Day, which is Saturday, Oct. 10 this year. 

In 2018, Henson founded The Boris Lawrence Foundation in honor of her father, who struggled with issues following his time serving in the Vietnam War. 

“I’ve long been a mental health advocate for the Black community and created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in 2018 that has provided resources to thousands of people who are struggling,” Henson said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to bringing this new talk series to Facebook Watch, where I can continue to create conversation around an issue that is near and dear to my heart.”
