June 11, 2019

**"People" magazine didn't bring LADY GAGA into it, but it appears they're allegedly blaming "A Star is Born" for breaking up BRADLEY COOPER and IRINA SHAYK. (and well, the rest of the whole world is doing the same thing)

A so-called "source" tells "People", quote, "Bradley was emotionally absent during the long time filming 'A Star Is Born'.  They tried to save the relationship but it had changed."

Another source claims Bradley and Irina were living separate lives leading up to the breakup . . . quote, "If he was in L.A., she's out of town, and if she was in town, he was out of town."

FIFTY PERCENT of the people who responded to a poll say that Tom would win if they threw down.  But only 15% think Justin can take Tom.  The other 35% are undecided.

Meanwhile, UFC star CONOR MCGREGOR wants in on this action.  He Tweeted, quote, "If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.

"Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?  Stay tuned to find out!"

Conor also challenged MARK WAHLBERG to a fight on the same card.

**The Golden State Warriors barely pulled out a win over the Toronto Raptors in Game Five of the NBA Finals last night with a score of 106 to 105.  The Raptors had a chance to end it in the final seconds, but a shot by Kyle Lowry didn't fall.

KEVIN DURANT returned to start for the Warriors, after sitting out a month with a calf strain. He scored 11 points in 12 minutes, and things were looking good, but then Durant re-injured the same leg in the second quarter, and left the game.  He didn't return.

Toronto still leads the series 3-2.  Game Six is Thursday in Oakland.

 

**Parents have been trying to trick their kids into eating vegetables FOREVER.  So it's about time the food companies colluded with them.

Kraft is releasing a new product called SALAD FROSTING.  It's in a pouch and has lots of bright colors on the front. But "salad frosting" is actually just . . . ranch dressing.

By disguising it as "frosting," Kraft is hoping it'll push kids to use it on their vegetables.

By the way, ranch dressing isn't THAT healthier than actual frosting when it comes to calories and fat.  It does have less sugar though . . . and if it motivates kids to eat vegetables, then maybe it's worth it.

**Miller Lite Has a New Can That Works as a Video Game Controller

If you thought Coors Light had a good beer can gimmick when they made those mountains that turned blue when the can was cold, check THIS out.

Miller Lite just created a new beer can that works as a VIDEO GAME CONTROLLER.  It's got a control pad, buttons, and a Bluetooth connection to hook up to your computer.

Unfortunately, if you want one, you have to go to an event in L.A. tomorrow night and beat the comedian Eric Andre in a game of "Street Fighter".  Or you can probably get ready to pay BIG for one on eBay.
