Two days ago we lost George Michael, today the iconic actress Carrie Fisher passed away. On December 23rd, Carrie suffered a massive heart attack on a flight back from London and reports say that she never improved from that. She was placed on a ventilator and this morning her heart simply stopped beating.
Carrie was in London promoting her new book “The Princess Diarist” , where she opened up about her affair with Harrison Ford, addiction, and more.
She leaves behind her daughter Billie Lourd and her beloved dog Gary who she always traveled with.
In reality, Carrie Fisher was an icon for many reasons. The first one in my opinion was that she proved that women can be heroes too. She played a female hero which is still hard to find to this day. She was also very open with her personal issues and she seemed to be overcoming them.
Thank you for all you did Carrie, you will be missed.
It has been confirmed that actor Alan Thicke passed away today after suffering a heart attack while he was playing hockey with his 19 year old son Carter. This was something that the two of them did fairly often according to reports.
According to TMZ, Alan was brought to to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center around noon today, and pronounced dead there.
Alan leaves behind three sons along with his wife, Tanya.
Alan will be remembered for his most famous role in ‘Growing Pains’ but he has over 45 credits to his name, he even recently starred in the pilot episode of ‘This Is Us’.
My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

It is hard to believe that it has been 15 years since Aaliyah passed away in a tragic airplane accident. One of the most talented members of young Hollywood in the early 2000’s for sure. She was a singer and an actress, and probably would’ve went on to do even more great things.
Missy discovered Aaliyah and took her under her wing, so their bond was extremely tight. Throughout the years Missy has spoken about how much she misses her good friend, and how she hopes to keep her spirit alive.
Aaliyah will never be forgotten, and thank you for the art you created while on this earth.
It has been confirmed that Anton Yelchin has passed away due to a freak accident. According to TMZ, the actor was found pinned between his car and his mailbox, which was attached to a security gate on his property.
“It appears he had exited his car and was behind it when the vehicle rolled down a steep driveway,” the LAPD said in a statement which was released just a few hours ago.
Police reportedly told TMZ that the engine was still running when he was found, and that his car was in neutral. It’s not clear why he got out of his car with the engine running.
Anton was best known for his role in the ‘Star Trek’ franchise where he played the character Pavel Chekhov. He was also in movies like “Charlie Bartlett” and one of my all time favorite movies, “Like Crazy”, one I would highly recommend checking out. He was also in “Fright Night”, “House”, and offered his voice to both of the Smurfs movies.
At this time there hasn’t been any other information released, no reason why his car was running, why it was in neutral or why he was behind it. His family has asked for privacy at this time.
Anton was only 27, an absolute tragedy for sure, a talented actor taken far too soon.
It has just been reported that Adam Levine will be paying for Christina Grimmie‘s funeral costs. If you weren’t away Adam was Christina’s coach when she appeared on season 6 of ‘The Voice’ and she came in third place.
Christina’s brother Marcus, who was hailed a hero in the shooting which left his sister and the shooter dead, posted this on Facebook.
I first heard from my sisters manager, Brian Teefey, that he will be making a gofundme to help our family move out of our current house and to take care of the funeral, and I figured why not, and I’m not about sharing that kind of stuff and I’m not a fan of handouts at all.
I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express…literally I have no words.
I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I’m so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten.
Please do not feel the need to donate anything at all. Please. Just leave a kind word, message or picture in the comments or message me and sign this change.org petition to help Christina possible be remembered in the next legend of Zelda game, her favorite game of all time. (credit)
There are many people out there talking about how money wont bring Christina back and they are correct. Her friends and family will hold onto this pain forever, money wont bring her back. This money will help pay for them to find somewhere new to live, her mother has cancer so it will help pay for treatment, and hopefully they can find a good use for it to keep Christina’s memory alive, that is all that we can hope.
As most people know, Christina was killed in by a fan on Friday night in Florida. Many celebrities and fans have been opening up about Christina and what she meant to them. Artists from Bieber to Charlie Puth to Twenty One Pilots have taken time out of their concert to at least mention the young singer taken far too early in her life.
What most people don’t know is that Selena Gomez and Christina were extremely close. Right when Christina became a Youtube sensation Selena’s stepfather signed on to be her agent, so Selena was close with her from there on. Christina also sang back up for Selena, along with opening for her on her last tour.
Last night in Miami, Selena performed a beautiful tribute to her friend.
May everyone in Christina’s life, friend, family, and fans all heal from this tragic loss.
Whether you are a sports fan or not, there is a good chance that you respect Muhammad Ali for his athleticism and well charisma.
Ali was known for his fancy foot work, quick hits, and his trash talk during his time as a boxers.
Let me just say one thing, he was not only one of the greatest boxers of all time but I will go out on a limb and say that he is one of the greatest athletes of all time. The first of his kind really. He will never be copied, a true original.
Rest in peace to ‘The Greatest of All Time’.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
I know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.
