Richard Simmons Was Hospitalized, Acting Strange

Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 11.24.06 AM

Um…okay.

Richard Simmons was hospitalized for dehydration over the weekend, and wants everyone to know that he’s not feeling or being weird at all, and that he’s toootally fine aka as weird a usual.  The 67-year-old fitness guru released a statement to Us Weekly on Sunday to assure fans that again, he’s only status quo weird, not sick or “be alarmed” weird:

“Thank you to everyone who has reached out with love and concern after hearing I was in the hospital. I was dehydrated and needed some fluids and now I am feeling great!” Simmons tells Us. “Summer is here — drink plenty of liquids. Big hugs and kisses for caring.”

The Sweatin’ to the Oldies star was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles late Friday night after he was reportedly exhibiting “bizarre” behavior and  Simmons’ longtime friend and housekeeper called 911 because she thought he “became incoherent.”

He was briefly evaluated at the hospital and later released. “He’s just fine,” the workout expert’s rep told Us earlier on Sunday. So, that’s good…

Richard- we’re all nervous about you. Maybe take a break from sweating to the oldies, to just LISTEN to them? Just a little breather, bro.

Muhammad Ali Dead At 74

Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 11.08.43 AM

Muhammad Ali‘s life ended on Friday.

Ali, one (if not THE) greatest boxers of all time, died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications. He was also diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 32 years ago, a progressive neurological condition that deteriorates speech and movement.

His daughter Rasheda said early Saturday that the legend was “no longer suffering,” describing him as “daddy, my best friend and hero” as well as “the greatest man that ever lived.”

In the early 1960s, when as a young heavyweight champion he converted to Islam and refused to serve in the Vietnam War, becoming a symbol of strength for his community and for professional sports. And even more recently, Ali was never one to shy away from controversy, speaking out or being himself. As his health declined, he criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States. “We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda,” he said.

A funeral service is planned in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. He will be missed, but not forgotten.

Channing Tatum Is A Student At Harvard Now

Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 3.27.12 PM

And LL Cool J, too!

According to Harvard Business School’s Facebook page, Channing Tatum is now an official student in the university’s Executive Education courses. No, not in dance or acting, as you might suspect- he’s actually in the school of BUSINESS. Yeah, I know.

Channing and LL are in a course taught by Professor Anita Elberse, and will learn how to execute “proven approaches for marketing creative products and portfolios, managing and marketing talent, determining when to make smaller versus blockbuster bets, and identifying and capitalizing on market disruptions”. Hey, sounds good to me.

In laymens’ terms, it’ll show him and his peers how to become more of an innovator in the film industry. Honestly, this is pretty cool, especially for a dude who’s admitted to struggling with ADHD and schooling issues in the past. But, will there be any kind of smooth “PONY” sountrack? Here’s hoping.

Have a wonderful, Ivy-league weekend, y’all!

Taylor Swift Wanted “A Future” With Calvin Harris

Screen Shot 2016-06-02 at 2.06.23 AM

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris might be done, but hey, there’s always twitter.

Despite being broken up, the two still have their memories and a mutual respect for each other and according to the social medias, the exes seem to still be on good terms. In fact, Harris broke his silence about the split via Twitter on Thursday, and it was very diplomatic:

“The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect,” Harris wrote. Swift retweeted him, to show that she agrees.

“It was simply a case of not being right for each other,” the source adds to Us. “They grew apart quite quickly, and although he tried to give her what she wanted, he felt like they’re just in different places. There’s no one else involved.”

Swift, meanwhile, is taking the split well. “It just wasn’t working anymore,” a second source previously told Us. “She’s OK.”

Aw. This was Swifty’s longest relationship to date, and hey, I’m okay if the breakup leads to an awesome new album. Right?
