JOHN MAYER’S SONG ‘HEART OF LIFE’ TO BE ADAPTED INTO A TV SHOW: ABC has ordered an one-hour drama pilot based on John Mayer’s song "Heart of Life." The show will follow "two sets of adult siblings from wildly different worlds who discover they’re related and must reassess everything they thought they knew about their shared father. As they explore the mystery of their separate childhoods, they’ll experience the difficulty in overcoming the sins of the past, and learn the joys of reuniting with long-lost family," Variety reports. John will be serving as executive producer on the series. "Heart of Life" was one of the songs on John’s 2006 album Continuum.
KELSY KARTER REVEALS HER HARRY STYLES TATTOO WAS FAKE: Kelsy Karter, the singer who went viral for tattooing Harry Styles’ face on her own face, has revealed that the tattoo was fake all along. The tattoo was part of a promotional stunt for her song "Harry," which she recorded over six months ago and was inspired by the One Direction singer. In a video titled, "How I rocked the entire world for $300," Kelsy details the story behind the tattoo. "What would the rock legends that inspired me have done in 2019?" she questioned before coming up with the idea for the tattoo. "To pull this off, we needed a celebrity tattoo artist to make it look real… He traced Harry’s 2017 Rolling Stone cover, applied it to my face, and then a special FX makeup artist did her thing." "BTW. We know it looked ridiculous. That was the point," Kelsy added.
