**Kid Rock swears his announcement that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat is NOT a hoax.

He linked to the website the other day, and a lot of people still think it’s a publicity stunt because if you try to buy merchandise, it redirects to a site hosted by Warner Brothers Records. So, that seemed like a dead giveaway.

But in a post on his blog yesterday, Kid Rock RIPPED on the media, and said he’s not even signed by Warner anymore. Which is true, they’re not his record label anymore. They ARE still his MERCHANDISE company though. So, that hasn’t really put the hoax rumors to bed.

He also suggested any music he puts out will be part of his Senate run. Quote, “Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine . . . It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101.”

**Production on “The Walking Dead” has been halted after a stuntman was seriously hurt in a fall from a balcony.

A stuntman working on Season Eight of the show was SERIOUSLY injured in Georgia on Wednesday when he fell over 20 feet from a balcony, landed on concrete, and hit his head. Supposedly, he’d lost his footing, and his condition is VERY serious. In fact, a source says currently he’s got no brain activity. They airlifted him to a hospital in Atlanta.

His name is John Bernecker. His girlfriend also does stunts for the show, so she’s there with him. “High falls” are one of John’s many specialties as a stuntman. Sources say he and an actor were rehearsing a fight scene that was supposed to end with a “routine” fall from a balcony, but John lost his footing.

AMC has temporarily shutting down production on the show.

The $49 one-piece suit for women features Guy’s face on the front, his signature sunglasses on the chest, and his goatee on, well…the lower half.

**He’s arguable got one of the best bods in Hollywood, and it’s not only wrestling that keeps John Cena looking so good. It’s his grooming routine.

John tells People magazine that he spends 30 minutes a day shaving his body. He said, “I’m completely man-scaped from head to toe — from the ears down — so that takes a bit of time. I’m constantly trying to stay up on fine lines in my skin and that stuff, so I’m a lot more grooming-centric than you would realize. My routine is a lot more than you would think — I’d say it’s a strong 7 ½ out of 10.”
