One of the longest labor crises in Hollywood’s history has finally come to an end. A billion dollar agreement was made between the studios and the SAG-AFTRA union. This includes compensation for streaming programs and some clear guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence.

SAG-AFTRA, the union representing 160,000 actors, reached this tentative deal for a new contract with entertainment companies, clearing the way for the $134 billion American movie and television business to swing back into motion. And yes, honey, the champagne has already started flowing.

Nicki Minaj opens up about her opioid and plastic surgery addictions

Nicki Minaj is on the cover of Vogue magazine, and she’s giving fans a peek into her private life as she spoke out about addiction and plastic surgery for her cover story.

The “Super Bass” maker, who, by the way, has turned 40, recalls being prescribed Percocet for menstrual cramps years ago. She said she continued to take them after the pain subsided. Nobody told her that it was a narcotic and that it would be addictive. She said, luckily, she was able to ground herself, but once an addict, always an addict.

She said she was addicted to plastic surgery too, but has since gotten rid of the big breasts and butt. And she looks great. Hey, ain’t nothing like the real thing. By the way, that was a song for those of you who may not remember.
