Actor Channing Tatum
Carly Fleischmann has a new series on YouTube called Speechless. Carly has autism and is unable to speak, but she is one hell of an interviewer!

Her first guest was actor Channing Tatum.

"He has been a stripper, a police officer, a secret agent, a reporter, a boyfriend to many, and soon he will dump his wife to be with me," she says. "I welcome Channing Tatum."

Carly gets him to open up on a variety of topics, including his wife's beliefs that he doesn't share, the actors he really wants to work with and the president he wants to drink with. And my favorite question:

"If your daughter was able to date today, which one of your actor friends would you prevent her from dating and why?"

Thunder forward Kevin Durant (35) and Danny Green of the Spurs
In my experience when a fan says the referee is wrong (myself included), the replay usually proves the ref right. Some sports now use instant replays to be sure the right call was made. This, however, was a mess!

The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 98-97 Tuesday night in the NBA Playoffs. The league has since admitted their referee team missed FIVE calls in the final THIRTEEN SECONDS! Whoops!

The objective part of me should remind you that referees are human and humans make mistakes. However if you're a Spurs fan you kind of got screwed. Here's what went down:

Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, decided to make fun of a Cincinnati airport worker named Andrew by taping him on camera and describing how high he looked.

"Look at him? What kind of S%^& do you think this guy took before he came to work today? What's your name? He is as high as a ****, pupils dilated and everything..."

What 50 Cent didn't take the time to notice is that the teen his was making fun of has a hearing impairment and autism.

Don't worry Andrew, the internet has your back. 50 Cent has been slammed with negative comments after the video went viral and people are demanding that he apologize.

Andrew's mother says, "It's heartbreaking. He was just doing his job and I think he (50 Cent) was mad and offended that someone didn't flock to him."

According to Andrew's stepfather, the family has a lawyer and may sue him for $1 million. He says they'd be willing to forget the whole thing, if 50 Cent donates $1 million to Andrew's GoFundMe page and makes a face-to-face apology.

*The video has graphic language but you can see it below. As of this posting 50 Cent has not commented on the backlash.

The Cast of "Hamilton"

History is happening for Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip hop opera about Alexander Hamilton.

The show was nominated for a whopping 16 Tony Awards on Tuesday, breaking the record for most nominations ever. So basically the cast will be sitting ON the stage during the Tony Awards?

Broadway junkies might know this but here's a factoid for the rest of us. Before Hamilton, the record was shared between The Producers and Billy Elliot, with 15 noms each.

Gwen Stefani
According to reports, Gwen Stefani may be ready to break up with NBC's The Voice. But it has nothing to do with Blake Shelton.

It started when producers replaced Gwen by bringing back Christina Aguilera. Then they offered to keep Gwen on as a mentor on Team Blake. They also said she'd be considered to replace Christina when she leaves the show forever next season. Did you follow all that?

Here's where the problem got bad - They never even talked to Gwen about replacing Christina, and meanwhile Miley Cyrus announced she was replacing Christina next season.

The rumor is Gwen will quit - We'll see.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling
Apparently this week is the fictional annivesrary of the "Battle of Hogwarts" in the Harry Potter books. As she usually does author J.K. Rowling has taken this opportunity to mourn the death of a character.

She apologized for killing off Remus Lupin.

I read and enjoyed all the books, but I never had a connection to them where I mourned fictional deaths. No judgement though! Okay, well, a little judgement.

Alex Rodriguez
Let me clarify - This might be the creepiest thing in baseball history done ON the field. I'm sure much worse has been done in locker rooms, on road trips, etc.

It was raining in Monday night's game, so Yankees star Alex Rodriguez dried off his bat in the creepiest way possible:

Go ahead and try and unsee that!

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton
As I heard this news I sighed as though I had a chance with Kate Upton. Ha!

Model Kate Upton and Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander revealed their engagement Monday. He actually proposed before the MLB season started.

She's only 23, he's 10 years older, plus they're both rich and famous, so the celebrity odds of marriage are against them. They do seem to really love each other though.

Katy Perry
Full disclosure: I'm not a fashion person. I'm just a person who knows what I like and don't like, so your opinions may be very different. But apparently the Met Gala is where celebrities try to out-weird each other.

Here's Rita Ora looking like a bird of some sort:

Taylor Swift:

I think Solange is dressed as a gift in a gift bag, we just can't see the bag. Doesn't this look like tissue paper sticking out of a gift?

Here's Lady Gaga, but I'm pretty sure she wears this every Monday night:

There was Katy Perry and her bleached eyebrows:

However the coolest dress of the night had to be on Claire Danes. It looked like a princess gown, then it freakin' lit up!

Celestial grandeur. Illuminating ballgown. Guess who? #metgala #zacposen #glamour

Disney purists are not to happy about the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag, as Disney has never had a gay princess character. But the LGBTQ community is rallying around the idea that Elsa, from the Oscar award winning movie Frozen, needs a love interest too. Supporters of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend believe giving Elsa another princess to love would set a good example of love, acceptance and tolerence.

Disney is currently making more Frozen movies and Elsa's romantic interests are a much talked about storyline.

The idea has even inspired some fan art:

No word yet on what Disney thinks of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.
