KEVIN SPACEY was in a Massachusetts court yesterday to be arraigned on sexual assault charges. He pleaded NOT guilty to accusations that he groped an 18-year-old man in a Nantucket bar in 2016. If he’s convicted, he could face up to five years in prison. After the arraignment, Spacey couldn’t get away fast enough. He hopped a plane to D.C., where he was pulled over for SPEEDING. According to a police spokesperson, he was given a verbal warning and, “continued on his way without any further incident.”
SHAQ is helping the family of Jazmine Barnes, the 7-year-old girl from Texas who was tragically killed in a drive-by shooting last month. He and a Houston police officer named Kenneth Miles brought a cashier’s check to Jazmine’s family last week to pay for the funeral, which is happening today. Last week, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins pledged his playoff game check to Jazmine’s family, which should be about $29,000.

When you hear a FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE song you’re almost always hearing TYLER HUBBARD singing lead, and BRIAN KELLEY doing harmony. But that arrangement’s not set in stone. Brian says “Tyler and I have always been big on what makes that specific song the best and we just kind of chase that down and whether that’s me singing a little bit lead here and there or Tyler singing the whole thing and me doing all the harmonies. But since Tyler is the top dog on their biggest songs, when Brian does handle lead vocals it almost sounds like an entirely different band.

It sounds like the random negativity that LAUREN ALAINA has experienced from the Internet has gotten her down, because she’s taking a break. She posted an old school photo from around 10 or so years ago where she has a short bob haircut and is wearing a striped polo shirt. In the caption she talks about capturing the innocence that “that Lauren” used to have. “She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss. She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes. She was happy and sure of herself. I want to live everyday to be more like her. I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her. I’m taking a little break from social media. I’ll be back soon. Much love to all of you.”

(KANE BROWN posted a video of his first time on stage, back when he was 12. It looks like a karaoke-type thing because he’s trying to do Tim McGraw’s “I Like It I Love It” . . . but he’s barely singing. He was 12. And here’s proof that he’s come a long way: He posted a video that he recorded a few days ago where he’s doing an a cappella verse of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”. In this one . . . well, he found his voice.)
