Selena Gomez took to Instagram after bikini photos of her in Australia showing a scar drew social media comments that she looked "thick."

The singer wrote that the beauty myth was "an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness and self-hatred."

Gomez says she "chose to take care of myself" because she wants to and "not to prove anything to anyone."

The scar was the result of a complication from her 2017 kidney transplant.

The post included a video of Gomez with friends on a boat in Sydney Harbor.

<![CDATA[IndyCar Inks 3-Year Media Rights Deal With NBC Sports]]> Wed, 21 Mar 2018 10:56:29 -0400 https://media.necn.com/images/213*120/AP_17261080590459.jpg

IndyCar has signed a new media rights package with NBC Sports Group that will dramatically increase its exposure next season and move the Indianapolis 500 to a different network for the first time since 1965.

Jon Miller, president of programming for NBC Sports Group, called the Indy 500 "one of the great jewels in all of sports" and said he was thrilled the network has been "entrusted" with the iconic event.

ABC's partnership with the Indy 500 was second in sports only to CBS' coverage of the Masters. CBS first began covering the golf tournament in 1956.

"We have had a wonderful and rewarding relationship with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indianapolis 500 and IndyCar, and it has been our distinct honor to be partners for so many years," said Burke Magnus, ESPN executive vice president of programming and scheduling. "We look forward to the rest of our events this season and wish them all the best in the future."

The three-year deal with NBC begins in 2019 and gives NBC the entire IndyCar package. It has most recently been split between ABC and NBC Sports, and only ABC was permitted to air races on broadcast television. NBC was relegated to cable.

Under the new contract, eight IndyCar races will be on broadcast next season, up from five that ABC aired. The rest of the schedule will be on NBC Sports Network.

The deal also puts IndyCar in the NBC Gold package, a direct-to-consumer product in which subscribers can purchase additional content that is not televised.

The big prize of the package is the Indianapolis 500, which NBC will include in its "Championship Season" marketing campaign. The network touts numerous high-profile championship events from May to July that include horse racing's Triple Crown, Premier League Championship Sunday, the French Open, the Stanley Cup Finals and the Tour de France.

ABC had a stranglehold on the Indy 500 and its contract limited NBC-aired events to cable. Both IndyCar CEO Mark Miles and heavyweight team owners Roger Penske and Chip Ganassi had stressed the need for IndyCar to be on one network going forward with fewer races on cable.

"Mark Miles had a singlehanded focus in finding just one partner," Miller told The Associated Press.

Miles told the AP that both NBC and ABC were in the bidding until the very end, with both networks interested in obtaining IndyCar's media rights. Negotiations apparently ended late last week and ABC sent an internal memo to its stations notifying them the IndyCar package would end after this season. An employee at one of those stations revealed ABC's statement in a since-deleted tweet, and ABC refused to comment all weekend.

Penske said NBC Sports will "invest in the future of the sport" at a time when the series has positive momentum. IndyCar debuted a new car at its opener earlier this month, drawing rave reviews from drivers and fans.

"We know that the ways our fans are watching races and viewing IndyCar content is rapidly changing, so staying ahead of the curve and the developing technology with our partners is important to the growth of our sport," Penske said. "We look forward to working with the NBC team to continue to build IndyCar and take the sport in new directions."

Penske and Miles also thanked ABC for its commitment to the series and Indy 500.

IndyCar and NBC then announced the new deal Wednesday.

As part of the NBC Sports deal:

— All 2019 IndyCar races will be streamed live on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.

— The Indy 500 and qualifying will be on NBC, along with seven other IndyCar races.

— NBCSN will air the remainder of the schedule; that channel has seen an 87 percent increase in IndyCar viewership over the past four years.

— NBC Gold will provide subscription feeds to practices, qualifying sessions, support races, Carb Day at Indy and the postseason championship celebration.

— NBCUniversal's "Symphony" marketing program will target the Indy 500 and use the company's numerous assets to promote "The Greatest Spectacle In Racing."


"NBC is really going to be aggressive about promoting, but in particular they are going to take good care of the Indianapolis 500," Miles told the AP. "They love their majors."

<![CDATA['Hamilton' and 'Dear Evan Hansen' Stars Release New Song]]> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:50:02 -0400 https://media.necn.com/images/213*120/plattmanuel.jpg

Broadway fans are buzzing over the release of a new song by two popular Tony winners in support of the upcoming March for Our Lives.

"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt, the original star of "Dear Evan Hansen," have recorded a duet called "Found/Tonight,' mixing lyrics from "You Will Be Found" from "Dear Evan Hansen" and "The Story of Tonight" from "Hamilton."

The song was released at midnight on Monday and is No. 1 on the iTunes singles chart.

The multi-city March for Our Lives on March 24 was planned after the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Miranda has been releasing "Hamilton"-related content each month in a series called Hamildrop.

<![CDATA[ Jury Selection for Bill Cosby Retrial Delayed Until April 2]]> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:07:23 -0400 https://media.necn.com/images/213*120/Bill+Cosby+Walk+Out.jpg

The start of Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial is being pushed back a few days to give both sides more time to wrangle over pretrial issues.

Judge Steven O'Neill issued an order Monday moving the start of jury selection to April 2. It had been scheduled for March 29.

O'Neill says he'll instead hold final pretrial hearings March 29 and 30.

Cosby has pleaded not guilty to charges he drugged and molested Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

O'Neill hasn't ruled on whether jurors can hear about Cosby's settlement with Constand or if his lawyers can mention another accuser by name in their opening statement. Cosby's lawyers are objecting to O'Neill's ruling allowing up to five other accusers to testify.

Cosby's first trial last year ended in a hung jury.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

A Cirque du Soleil acrobat who was injured after falling onto the stage during a show in Tampa died Sunday, a statement from the entertainment group confirmed. 

Yann Arnaud, an aerialist who was performing during a March 17 production of VOLTA, died from his injuries in the hospital, the company said.

"The entire Cirque du Soleil family is in shock and devastated by this tragedy," Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO of the company, said in the statement. "Yann had been with us for over 15 years and was loved by all who had the chance to know him. Over the coming days and weeks, our focus will be on supporting Yann’s family and our employees, especially the VOLTA team, as we go through these difficult times together."

WFLA reported the aerial strap artist fell in a "horrifying drop" during his number. The show was canceled and Arnaud was transported to a nearby hospital.

The last two shows of VOLTA in Tampa were canceled, according to the company. The shows were scheduled to take place on March 18 at 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Anyone who purchased tickets through the Cirque du Soleil website or call center will receive an automatic refund on their credit card, while anyone who purchased a ticket through another vendor will have to contact the original point of sale for a refund, the company stated.

Cirque du Soleil said they are gathering more information about the tragic incident and are working with authorities to determine the circumstances of the accident.

Actors John Goodman and Fred Armisen made surprise appearances in “Saturday Night Live’s” cold open with host Bill Hader and Alex Moffat as CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

The cold open began as a segment from CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” show covering President Donald Trump’s firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, played by Goodman.

Armisen played author and columnist Michael Wolff, who wrote the book" Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," while Hader brought back his impersonation of Anthony Scaramucci, who had a short-lived career as a White House communications director.

A popular Hader character Stefon also returned to “Weekend Update” as the ultra-hipster who offered tips on New York hot spots for St. Patrick’s Day.

Other topics on “Weekend Update” included Kate McKinnon’s portrayal of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who received criticism for her CBS “60 Minutes” interview.

“I think the problem was the words that were coming out of my mouth were bad. That is because they came from my brain,” McKinnon’s DeVos said. “I may not be very good on camera but behind the scenes my ideas are much worse.”

The band Arcade Fire joined the show for their fourth appearance as musical guest.

The answer to winning your NCAA office pool might be to watch more "Paw Patrol." 

While No. 13 Marshall's historic 81-75 win over the No. 4 Wichita State Shockers shocked the world, the fact that the Thundering Herd were on a roll didn't surprise kids who picked the team to go all the way thanks to Marshall the pup from "Paw Patrol." 

It's well-known that some people make their bracket picks based on mascots or school logos. After the Thundering Herd caught fire from the three-point range late in Friday's game for the upset victory, some joked on Twitter that their bracket took a hit and maybe they should have listened to their kids.

In "Paw Patrol," a 10-year-old character named Ryder leads a pack of rescue pups in training to help those in distress in a town called Adventure Bay. Each dog is “ inspired by real-world jobs like a firefighter, police officer, and construction worker,” according to the show’s website.

The pups all have corresponding vehicles and catch phrases. Marshall is a clumsy Dalmatian pup who has a firefighter hat and fire truck with a ladder. His signature line is “let’s fire it up.” 

The victory was the West Virginia school's first NCAA Tournament win in program history, 31 years after its last appearance.

"Paw Patrol" took to the airwaves for Nickelodeon in August 2013. The show's Twitter account has not yet weighed in on how fired up it was by the attention.

<![CDATA[RuPaul Honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame]]> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 18:06:36 -0400 https://media.necn.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-932919220.jpg

Entertainment icon and world-famous drag queen RuPaul received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Friday.

RuPaul Andre Charles is the 2,631st celebrity to get his own star.

The two-time Emmy winner was introduced by Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda at the ceremony, who remarked that his star should be "at least three sizes bigger than any other star on the Walk of Fame."

RuPaul reflected on his lifelong aspiration to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, sharing, "It was a dream I wasn't sure how I would achieve it but I had so much support from my family and from my faith in a benevolent universe. And that is what has brought me here today."

The ceremony took place outside of World of Wonder production offices -- the company that produces VH1's "RuPaul's Drag Race,'' which brought RuPaul prime-time Emmys as outstanding host of a reality or reality-competition program in 2016 and 2017.

"RuPaul is a revolutionary performer who brought the art of drag into the American public eye and made it mainstream,'' said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Born RuPaul Andre Charles on Nov. 17, 1960, in San Diego, he later studied theater at the North Atlanta School of Performing Arts. He settled in New York City in the mid-1980s, becoming a popular fixture on the nightclub scene earning himself the title "Queen of Manhattan.''

RuPaul's first prominent national exposure came in 1989, with a featured role dancing in the B-52's "Love Shack'' music video.

RuPaul released his first album, "Supermodel of the World'' in 1993, which topped Billboard's Heatseekers chart for new and developing recording artists. He has released 10 more studio albums, two soundtrack albums, six compilation albums, three remix albums, one extended play and 32 singles.

RuPaul has produced and hosted the competition series "RuPaul's Drag Race,'' since 2009. He also hosted "RuPaul's Drag U,'' where women are given drag makeovers and "Gay for Play Game Show Starring RuPaul,'' both on Logo.

RuPaul has also been a judge on the Game Show Network's body-painting competition, "Skin Wars.''

RuPaul has appeared in more than 50 films and television shows both in and out of drag including "Crooklyn,'' "The Brady Bunch Movie,'' "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar,'' and "But I'm a Cheerleader.''

<![CDATA[Fla. Shooting Survivors Release Original Song to Help Heal]]> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:17:29 -0400 https://media.necn.com/images/213*120/AP_18056804120693-parkland.jpg

Days after a gunman stormed their Florida school and killed 17 people, two young survivors wrote a song about their grief and healing. On Friday, those Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students released their song for the world to hear.

The inspirational power-ballad is called "Shine," and the students said on their YouTube page that it "is dedicated in loving memory of the 17 victims" of the Feb. 14 massacre. All proceeds will go toward their non-profit, Shine MSD, which helps fund recovery efforts for the victims and families affected by the shooting, as well as mental health programs centered around the arts.

[[477103343, C]]

Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Pena penned the original song "as a creative outlet so our voices and the voices of those 17 could be heard and never forgotten," Pena wrote on Twitter.

It's packed with emotional lyrics that illustrate the trauma they experienced and how they are fighting to overcome it. A single piano leads the track with rich harmonies and powerful strings filling the background until the song reaches a crescendo with drums.

[[477103943, C]]

Garrity and Pena were moved to record and release "Shine" after performing it at the Feb. 21 CNN Town Hall event along with several other students.

"What started as a personal healing journey quickly grew into an anthem met with an overwhelming response," their website says. "Sawyer, Andrea, their families and friends realized the power of healing through artistic expression, and the positive impact the arts has in inspiring hope and unity in the aftermath of tragedy."

"Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot is under fire for a tweet she sent marking the passing of Stephen Hawking.

[[477091283, C]]

Hawking, the best-known theoretical physicist of his time, died peacefully at his home in Cambridge, England, Wednesday. Hawking's book, "A Brief History of Time," became an international best seller, making him one of science's biggest celebrities since Albert Einstein.

While she meant no ill intent, some took umbrage with Gadot's reference to Hawking now being free of "physical constraints," saying it suggested the iconic physicist was better off dead than disabled.
