Elton John Calls Himself "Truly Blessed" as He Celebrates 30 Years of Sobriety

Elton John revealed Wednesday on Instagram that he celebrated 30 years of sobriety with a cake and some special words on Instagram.

"Reflecting on the most magical day having celebrated my 30th sobriety birthday. So many lovely cards, flowers and chips from my sons, David, friends in the Program, staff at the office and in our homes," the 73-year-old icon wrote about husband David Furnish and Alcoholics Anonymous.

"I’m truly a blessed man. If I hadn’t finally taken the big step of asking for help 30 years ago, I’d be dead."

He signed off by telling fans, "Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who have inspired and supported me along the way."

"Facts of Life" Star Mindy Cohn Claims She Sang Backup Vocals on Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T."

Did Mrs. Garrett approve of this?

This past weekend, former Facts of Life star Mindy Cohn claimed that she sang backup on Michael Jackson's early-'80s pop classic "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)."

Cohn's confession came in the comments of DJ Mad Marj’s Saturday tea dance party on Twitch after the song began to play. “Me and Janet [Jackson]," Cohn--who played Natalie on the long-running sitco--wrote. "And I’m the kids at the end, too. We went to listen to the record and Quincy Jones put us on the mike."

She added that she'd “have to post the pic on Instagram of the session … It’s kinda wild!” But as of Tuesday morning, it seems she still hadn't done so.

The longtime and beloved host also talked about "very special 'Jeopardy!' episodes that will be coming up in July."

"Meanwhile, my wish for all of you -- stay safe."

Jude Law in Talks to Play Captain Hook in Disney's Live-Action "Peter Pan" Film

Just call him Jude Lawless! Variety reports that Jude Law is in talks to play the big, bad Captain Hook in an upcoming live-action version of Disney's Peter Pan.

The new remake, titled Peter Pan and Wendy, will be helmed by director David Lowery, who previously directed the critically acclaimed Ain't Them Bodies Saints and The Old Man and the Gun.

There's no other casting news so far for the project, which is expected to be released theatrically instead of on the Disney+ streaming service.

Hopefully, Peter Pan and Wendy will fare better at the box office than 1991's Hook and 2015's Pan--two other live-action Peter Pan remakes that both flopped in theaters.
