Newton-John has breast cancer
Olivia Newton-John says she has breast cancer and is canceling her June tour.
Newton-John’s show Saturday at the Hard Rock Northfield Park has been postponed.
The 68-year-old singer said Tuesday she initially thought she was suffering from back pain, but learned it was “breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum.”
Newton-John said she will complete “a short course of photon radiation therapy” and hopes to perform later this year.
Ticket buyers will be refunded for the canceled shows.
Comedian offers apology
Kathy Griffin says she went way too far when she appeared in a brief video Tuesday holding what looked like President Donald Trump’s bloody, severed head.
The comic posted a video later Tuesday apologizing for the video image, saying it was “too disturbing” and wasn’t funny.
“I sincerely apologize,” she said. “I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people.”
The first video showed a straight-faced Griffin slowly lifting the bloody head. She originally described the project with photographer Tyler Shields as an “artsy fartsy statement” mocking the commander in chief.
Many online called for Griffin to be jailed.
Ads return to Hannity’s show
The USAA financial services firm is reinstating its advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program after receiving heavy criticism for its initial decision from many of the military members and veterans that it serves.
The San Antonio, Texas-based company said Tuesday it will also start advertising again on other programs where it had suspended ads, including Hardball and The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, and Jake Tapper’s The Lead on CNN.
