BILLIE EILISH AMONG MOST DANGEROUS CELEBRITIES TO SEARCH FOR ONLINE – (10/24/2019)
Billie Eilish has made the top 10 on a list compiled by cyber-security firm McAfee of which celebrities are among the most dangerous to search for online. In its latest annual poll, McAfee shares what names are most likely to link you to malicious websites and viruses.
Last year Kim Kardashian topped the list but she’s now all the way down at Number 26, with the U.K.’s Love Island host Caroline Flack taking the dangerous top spot. Coming in second is Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams, Late Late Show host James Corden is Number Three, Nicki Minaj is fourth and Eilish finishes in fifth place.
The rest of the top 10 includes actors Josh Gad and Mischa Barton, singer Sam Smith, Dua Lipa and Liam Hemsworth respectively.
McAfee’s Raj Samani stated, “Often consumers put . . . speed and convenience over security by clicking on suspicious links that promise content featuring our favorite celebrities. Consumers need to think before they click to be sure that they are surfing to safe digital content and protecting themselves from cyber-security threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity.”
Eilish has been touring behind her smash debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. The “Bad Guy” and “All The Good Girls Go To Hell” singer next plays in Mexico City on November 17th.

LIZZO ADDRESSES ‘TRUTH HURTS’ PLAGIARISM CLAIMS – (10/24/2019)
Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Lizzo has addressed plagiarism claims surrounding her record, “Truth Hurts.” According to Rap-Up, Lizzo has denied claims that she stole the “100% that b*tch” verse and has given songwriting credit to Mina Lioness, whose 2017 tweet inspired the line and became a popular meme.
Songwriter and producer brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen claimed that Lizzo was present for a writing session when they wrote a record called “Healthy” in 2017. The line from the song goes, “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that b*tch.” Justin said, “We’ve tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% each but were shutdown every time.”
Lizzo has since responded to the claims, writing on social media that the brothers had nothing to do with “Truth Hurts.” She said, “The men who now claim a piece of Truth Hurts did not help me write any part of the song. They had nothing to do with the line or how I chose to sing it. There was no one in the room when I wrote Truth Hurts, except me, Ricky Reed, and my tears. That song is my life, and its words are my truth.”
She added, “The creator of the tweet is the person I am sharing my success with…not these men. Period.”

JESSICA BIEL’S TRUE FEELINGS ON NSYNC REVEALED: *Blushing* It seems Jessica Biel did not think highly of her now-husband Justin Timberlake’s earliest musical efforts. Appearing on The Tonight Show Tuesday, the star was confronted with video footage proving her distaste for the Timberlake-fronted NSYNC. “To be honest, I don’t really listen,” she said in the 1999 clip when asked if she’s a fan of the “Tearin’ Up My Heart” group. “I mean, I know of them, of course, and I’ve heard of them and I’ve heard the music. I don’t think I own any of their CDs. I’m not a huge fan. But, I mean, cool, I guess.” She responded to the footage: “I’m so screwed now.”
