Five Guys replaced In-N-Out as American’s favorite burger chain.
The burger chain received the top spot in the burger category in The Harris Poll’s annual EquiTrend Study which asks respondents to rate brands based on familiarity, quality, and how likely they are to consider purchasing its items.
In-N-Out fell to second while McDonald’s came in seventh.
Simon Cowell has “no interest” in returning to “American Idol”, though he has been approached to appear in ABC’s reboot.
Speaking to Extra’s Terri Seymour on Thursday, Cowell said: “I was asked to do it, and the answer is no.”
He added: “I have no interest. My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy, Ryan and Paula. You can’t re-create that.”
“Idol” was Cowell’s breakthrough in America, with the British record producer wit and harsh putdowns a mainstay of the original series. Cowell’s current TV commitments may have made it difficult for him to return to “Idol” anyhow, occupying as he does the judge’s chair on “America’s Got Talent”, “Britain’s Got Talent” and “The X Factor UK”.
Caitlyn Jenner spoke about undergoing gender reassignment surgery… with Larry King.
83-year-old King asked, “You never discuss surgery. Why?”
Jenner replied, “Out of respect. Not just for me — because those things are very personal, wouldn’t you agree? And just because you’re trans doesn’t mean that you have to ask every question.”
“I understand that people are fascinated by that kind of stuff,” Jenner continued. King interjected, “I’m only fascinated for one reason: what is the surgery like? What is it like to go through with it?” and added that he presumes the surgery “would be tough.”
According to Jenner, “it’s not as bad as you think. I’ll go with that.”
She continued, “It’s not quite as bad as you think, but most trans women do not have surgery. It’s only about I think 32 percent”. Jenner explained that the percentage is less than half in part because “it’s expensive.”
“But most, as far as getting the time and this and that to be able to do something like that — and what’s between your legs doesn’t define who you are.”
“It’s about what’s here,” she said, pointing to her head. “And a lot of them, to be honest with you, like their old parts.”
Caitlyn Jenner opens up to Larry King about undergoing gender reassignment surgery: ‘It’s not as bad as you think’.
Katy Perry was asked if there’s a response to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” on her next album and she said, “Well that’s not my question to answer, if it’s about me. I think my new album is a very empowered record. There is not one thing that’s calling out any one person.”
Katy didn’t get into specifics about her feud with Taylor, but she did say, ”Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story. But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don’t forget about that, okay, honey.”
A Minnesota high school senior found herself without a prom date, so she decided to take her Harvard acceptance letter to the dance.
She got the idea from her sister, and then took to Twitter to post a photo of herself kissing the Harvard2021 folder with the caption: “Couldn’t find a man to accept me for prom so I took a college that did.”
The frugal 17-year-old, whose dress was made by a family friend, adds that her date “was pretty low maintenance, so I didn’t have to pay for his dinner”.
