Like, seriously, freaked out. I trace it back to seeing a trailer for “Jaws” when I was a little girl.
Three things to watch
For those who DO love sharks, “Shark Week” on Discovery is like multiple Super Bowls.
Seriously, the network has something for just about everyone.
Don’t believe me?
“Shark Week” runs Sunday through July 18 on Discovery and Discovery+.
Is there anything better than being a wealthy teen growing up in New York City?
“Gossip Girl” is streaming on HBO Max, which shares CNN’s parent company.
Come through, Natasha Romanoff!!
“Black Widow” hits theaters and Disney+ on Friday.
Two things to listen to
What time is it?
Superproducers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are bringing a ton of talent for their new album, “Jam & Lewis Volume One.”
The former members of the group The Time, who went from being Prince protégés to helping craft the career of Janet Jackson, have some real heavy hitters on their debut album, including Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton and Usher.
You read that right: After more than 40 years in the music industry, this is the duo’s first album.
“Jam & Lewis Volume One” is out Friday.
Narrated by actor Eric Roberts and hosted by “Law & Order” alum Elisabeth Röhm (that just feels right, doesn’t it?), the new podcast features “more than 10,000 never-before-seen intimate personal letters, hundreds of hours of private and extremely vivid phone recordings, profound artwork and journal excerpts, and unpublished books from America’s most notorious serial killers, including John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, David Berkowitz, Richard Ramirez and more.”
That sounds like a treasure trove of terror right there.
“Killer’s Vault” is currently streaming on Spotify and Apple.
One thing to talk about
In it, we see photographers getting shots of what appeared to be Lopez and Affleck, then a couple looking tense, with Lopez wiping away tears. But further watching of the video reveals it’s actually an eyelash in Lopez’s eye.
The entire theme of the video is the invasion of privacy and how not every scene is what it may seem to be at first glance.
Until they confirm they are more than just friends, our Spidey senses can tingle all they want — and that goes for all celebs trying to have a private life in a very public industry.
Something to sip on
But digging into past interviews with Cannon, there is evidence that we shouldn’t be surprised by his, ah … fruitfulness.
At the time, he discussed his relationship with model Brittany Bell, with whom he now shares two children. He said he’s very up front with the women he’s involved with and will never have to deal with “baby mama drama” because he’s a “straight shooter.”
Cannon said on his Power 106 Los Angeles radio show this week that the children he welcomed in the past year were planned.
“Trust me, there’s a lot of people that I could’ve gotten pregnant that I didn’t,” he said Wednesday. “The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant.”
Stop snickering at that and appreciate that Cannon also said he “loves to take care of women.” That’s probably very reassuring to the women he shares children with.
