    An Argentinian silversmith is in New York City this week drumming up support for an unusual project: a silver communion chalice for the pope’s upcoming trip to the United States. A seventh-generation silversmith who has known Pope Francis for more than a decade, Adrián Pallaros intends to make the chalice by melting down silver jewelry—”an earring, a little ring you don’t use,” anything with silver in it—donated by Americans from across the country. Pallaros, 43, says Pope Francis would use the chalice during a mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral…

In an interview Saturday with the Indianapolis Star, the Republican governor said he’s been in discussions with legislative leaders this weekend. He expects that a clarification bill will be introduced this coming week to the religious objections law he signed Thursday. He declined to provide details but told the newspaper that making gay and lesbian…
  • Sacha Baron Cohen to Star in Freddie Mercury Biopic

    A biopic starring Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury, the dynamic Queen frontman who died in 1991 at the age of 45 due to complications from AIDS, has been in the works for nearly seven years. It was confirmed as happening as early as 2010 and confirmed as not happening as recently as 2013—reportedly due to Cohen “not seeing eye to eye with the remaining members of Queen who have script and director approval.” Apparently the band was interested in a PG-version of the rock star’s life, while Cohen had hopes for a “gritty R-rated tell-all.” During the…

    Nick Jonas, one-time JoBro and man of a thousand abs, made a very special house call when he “hijacked” the alcohol delivery app Saucey in Los Angeles – not just bringing booze to a bunch of unsuspecting people, but then playing them some music. “He did ‘Jealous’ and ‘Chains’ and everyone sang along. Everyone was so excited and he served each customer their first drink when they got in the room before he played,” a source tells PEOPLE. Or as some of those same house guests said on Instagram: “Nick Jonas just casually playing…

Think the Beatles, the Stones, Zeppelin. But most of all think the Kinks, where the usual animosities were amplified by the sibling rivalry of Ray and Dave Davies.The brothers’ feud (still…

We are big foodies so when a few friends of ours told us to explore the Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles, we jumped on it the first opportunity we could! Plus, another Melbournian coffee snob (not Jack) rated the coffee shop there pretty highly, so we just had to see it for ourselves and put it to the test against Jacks coffee snobbery.
