Your Name is Neil Diamond...

Neil Diamond's kicking off a new concernt tour, and he's started on the talk show circuit.

He popped into The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his legendary career - he's a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, you know.

But the conversation turned to his name. "Neil Diamond" is his real name, but early on in the business, he thought about changing it.

Listen to the conversation for the full story.

Then play it again, but mute the video, and tell me if this guy isn't looking a little bit like Sean Connery these days.

Man on a Leash?

Jada Pinkett Smith showed up to audition for the role of Fish Mooney on Fox’s Gotham with a man on a leash.

Her character is a shady club owner in Gotham who has relationships with a lot of underworld characters – and maybe a less than honorable relationship with some of Gotham’s finest as well.

Last weekend, she told folks at the PaleyFest that she wanted to show the producers that she understood her character. So instead of talking about Fish Mooney, she decided to show them.

She showed up in a short wig and a long flowing gown with a shirtless man on a leash.

She says she went “method.” The dude on the leash went “canine,” I guess.

She also has a strong presence on Twitter, keeping in touch with her fans by tweeting.

Breaking Bad Action

A mom in Florida has started a petition to get the Toys ‘R’ Us chain to take Breaking Bad action figures off their shelves.

The mom doesn’t like the message that the figures send, saying that kids mimic what their action figures do.

The Walter White doll, for instance, comes complete with bags of cash and methamphetamine.

The mom admits that she liked the series – even found it riveting – but she wants the figures out of Toys ‘R’ Us

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter in the series, had an interesting take on the whole thing, with a fun tweet yesterday.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?

There's a company that sells giant stuffed plush versions of various microbial organisms - among them, the Ebola virus, which they call "the T. Rex of microbes."

And guess what?

With so much talk about Ebola these days - and by "talk," I mean "panic" - the entire stock of Ebola toys has sold out.

That includes the small Ebola doll ($9.95), the gigantic Ebola doll ($29.95) and the Ebola Petri Dish ($14.95).

Yup, that's exactly what we want our kids playing with these days, isn't it?

The video below was made about three years ago - but check it out anyway.

Slogans Can Hurt

Ellen Degeneres is all over the Red Bull class action lawsuit.

You'll recall that the makers of the energy drink settled their case recently, offering a $13 million payout to consumers who may have been duped into believing that Red Bull gives you wings.

On yesterday's Ellen, viewers got to meet a man who believes most slogans, and is suing everyone from Nike to Exxon to Ellen herself.

Check it out.

Kooking with Kardashian?

Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook.

Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right?

In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it."

If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.

Looks Like Nicki Minaj Is Single!

Nicki Minaj's guy Safaree has been her man for about 30 years or something…lol. Nah, 10. But it seems like that situation has run its course for real. Anyway, TMZ has revealed that the dude had now covered up his Nicki Minaj tats. The longterm boyfriend has now given clear-cut reasoning that he and she are no longer an item. He could have just kept them and been her ultimate fan. Now, he's like 50 Cent's son – no inheritance! Sheeesh…you can't go around losing lottery tickets like that mannnnnnnnn….

Here are the images from TMZ:


If Nicki Minaj and her boyfriend are still together, then he's got a weird way of showing the love … having 2 of his 3 Nicki tats covered up with new ink.
Check out the pics for yourself … Safaree Samuels had some work done on his chest — though it's unclear when — and he clearly covered up Nicki's name/mug.

Not only that, but his forearm ink looks drastically faded as well.

Neither have commented on rumors of their breakup, but Nicki definitely hinted at one back in May when she tweeted "SINGLE N READY TO MINGLE."

At the time, sources told us it was just a temporary argument and that the 2 were still together.

But healthy couples don't typically deface their better half's face, do they?

Man, love hurts.

New Show “Sex And The Niggaz” Raises Eyebrows

Screen Shot 2014-10-19 at 12.37.30 PM
Brazilian television may not have a clue how sensitive the "N-Word" is for Black people if a new TV show is an indication.

A new program called "Sex And The Niggaz" is a take on "Sex And The City," but it follows four Black women.

The prime time show is written by a white man, Miguel Falabella, has people in an uproar, highlighting bigotry and bias. A national boycott has ensued and critics are all over this one.

One writer from mediadiversified.org said:

"In the series "Sex and the Niggaz", the narrator is a white person. She is a voyeur; someone who is looking through a keyhole at the sexuality and the bodies of black women who can be raped and manipulated by structural whiteness, not only literally but also through cultural representation. Our existence is fetishised. We are on display for the white gaze. Moreover, even when the characters in "Sex and the Niggaz" are placed in situations of explicit racism and sexism, they do not react. The women remain silent or dissolve into strange giggles. These women do not represent us."
