Taylor Swift donated $50,000 to her backup dancer’s infant nephew who is battling cancer. The donation was made yesterday, shortly after a GoFundMe page for the child went live. Taylor signed the donation and left a message for the 13-month-old named Ayden. “Baby Ayden, I’m lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour,” the message reads. “All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way.” According to the GoFundMe page, Ayden was diagnosed with cancer three days ago. Donations are being collected in order to provide the baby’s mother with financial support. Taylor’s dancer, Kim Toshi Davidson, posted an Instagram photo of his nephew and directed people to the donation page. Thanks to Taylor’s contribution, the fundraiser has now far surpassed its initial goal of $20,000.
Millions of traditional James Bond fans will be shaken and stirred when their hero orders a Dirty vodka Martini in “Spectre.” Daniel Craig, will see a dramatic break with the past as 007 shares a cocktail with French beauty Lea Seydoux, who plays a character called Madeleine Swann. As they enjoy dinner together, Bond switches his preference from a Vesper Martini with a twist of lemon to a “Dirty” – combining Belvedere vodka, dry vermouth, a muddled Sicilian green olive, and a measure of the olive’s brine. “You can see the olives in the glass,” said an insider on Spectre. “Bond is clearly going for a Dirty Martini to impress his dining companion – it’s all very sensual. Traditionalists might find it a bit strange, but the Dirty is in fact a great choice for a licensed killer who can’t stop seducing women.”
Matt Damon is coming to Ben Afflecks defense, over how the public saw him 10 years ago. He has a point. 10 Years ago was the Ben and JLO days. Right before he married Jennifer Garner. They were known as “Bennifer” and Matt Damon says it frustrated him to no end that he was “misunderstood, and cast as a talentless kind of meathead. It could not have been farther apart from who he actually is. It was like he was being cast in a role, that he was a talentless kind of meathead, with his whole relationship with Jennifer Lopez. . “It was just really painful. It was painful to be his friend, because it wasn’t fair, you know? To my mind, nobody really got him at all.”
Affleck’s all-time career low is widely considered Gigli, the critical and box office bomb in which he starred opposite JLO. (He since redeemed himself… to say the least). “Through his work, he climbed from the bottom of the mountain all the way back up to the top. And past where either of us had ever been.”
Affleck wasn’t the only one out of the dynamic duo to make mistakes in his earlier years. “I had a terrible temper,” Damon recalled of his youth in Hollywood. “I mean, like, a problematic temper. I still get riled up and competitive.”
