Months after announcing her divorce, singer Kacey Musgraves has broken her silence about what happened between her and Ruston Kelly. The ‘Golden Hour’ singer told Rolling Stone that their marriage just didn’t work out. “It’s nothing more than that. It’s two people who love each other so much, but for so many reasons, it just didn’t work,” Musgraves, 32, said. “I mean, seasons change. Our season changed.” The Grammy winner says she now questions the institution of marriage. “I mean, I was open to it when it came into my life. I embraced it. I just have to tell myself I was brave to follow through on those feelings,” she said. Musgraves and Kelly, both singer-songwriters, first met in 2016 and got married in 2017. However, less than three years later, they released a joint statement saying they would be parting ways. “With heavy but hopeful hearts we wanted to put our own thoughts into the air about what’s happening. These kinds of announcements are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts,” their July 2020 statement read. “We’ve made this painful decision together — a healthy decision that comes after a very long period of trying the best we can. It simply just didn’t work. Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives,” they added.

Calling all DC fans! ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ will officially be available in the Middle East, Esquire ME has reported. The much-anticipated #SnyderCut of the 2017 film, reportedly with a runtime of four hours featuring newly-shot scenes and re-edits of the original, will be headed to Video on Demand in the Gulf. In the United States, the film will release exclusively on HBO Max, with no plans for cinema release for the four-hour movie anywhere in the world. In the UAE, the film will release for digital purchase on March 18 through beIN and OSN VOD, with eLife, Switch TV, Du and OSN basic to follow on April 2. The DC Universe site lists the dates as estemitated, so the dates are subject to change. ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ will feature never-before-scenes and characters, including Jared Leto’s Joker and Ray Porter’s Darkseid. While Snyder left the original ‘Justice League’ movie owing to a personal tragedy, director Joss Whedon — currently in hot water amid various abuse allegations — stepped in only to famously mangle the production, alienating fans and critics alike. This sparked a worldwide movement, originating the ‘ReleaseTheSnyderCut’ hashtag. Snyder is currently also working on the zombie heist film, ‘Army of the Dead’, scheduled to hit Netflix on May 21 this year.

The Weeknd may be known for his graphic music videos and performances featuring blood and violence, but the three-time Grammy winner says he will tone down his act during the Super Bowl halftime show. The pop star said he will “keep it PG” during his headliner slot on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium as the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa, Florida. He promised to be “respectful to the viewers.” “I will still incorporate some of the storyline. It’s a very cohesive story I’ve been telling throughout this era and throughout this year,” he said. “The story will continue, but definitely will keep it PG for the families.” The 2021 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show will be different this year due to the pandemic and The Weeknd said he will use different parts of the stadium, the field and a “little bit” of the famously massive pirate ship. But the singer would not be drawn into specifics of his show. “You have to watch on Sunday,” he said. When asked for his favourite Super Bowl halftime show, The Weeknd cited Diana Ross’ 1996 performance. She was lowered to the stage by a crane of sparklers, hundreds of dancers spelled out her name on the field, she made three costume changes and she left via helicopter. “The show just makes me smile,” said The Weeknd. The Weeknd broke though into mainstream with his smash hit ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ that was featured on his second studio album, ‘Beauty Behind the Madness,’ which topped the Billboard 200 in 2015 and won a Grammy. He’s had three other chart-topping albums including his recent offering ‘After Hours,’ which was released in March. Last year, The Weeknd’s hit single ‘Blinding Lights’ became his fifth song to peak at No 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He’s also won Grammys for his album ‘Starboy’ and the song ‘Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey).’ Roc Nation and Emmy-nominated producer Jesse Collins will serve as co-executive producers of the halftime show. The game and halftime show will air live on CBS. Collins said he wants to put on a live halftime show that is “unique and reflects the creativity all of us bring to the process to help translate The Weeknd’s unparalleled vision.” The Weeknd, whose real name is, Abel Tesfaye, joins a list of celebrated musicians who have played during Super Bowl halftime shows, including Madonna, Beyonce, Coldplay, Katy Perry, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson and last year’s duo of Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.

Meanwhile, another source cited also stated that David Eigenberg, who plays Steve Brady, Miranda’s husband, won’t be returning as well, however a representative told Page Six that the actor is still in negotiations and could appear in the series. Noth not rejoining the show would come as a big blow to fans of the original series after news that Kim Cattrall would also not return; Cattrall played the fast-talking PR guru Samantha Jones on ‘SATC’. Cattrall, who’s had a long running feud with Parker, has stated many times in media that she would never return to the series or the corresponding films.

To the surprise of absolutely no one who’s been paying attention to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival and Stagecoach festival, scheduled for three consecutive weekends in April at Indio’s Empire Polo Club, have been cancelled. According to an announcement by the Riverside County Public Health Officer posted Friday, the events were shuttered “based on concerns of a fall resurgence” of COVID-19. Coachella and its country music cousin Stagecoach were both originally scheduled for April 2020, and were among the first festivals canceled during the initial throes of the coronavirus pandemic. They were then rescheduled for October, and then rescheduled again for April 2021. Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine were the scheduled Coachella headliners. AEG, which owns festival promoter Goldenvoice, had no further comment on the cancellation, or on when potential new dates would be announced.
