Former Beach Boys Star Brian Wilson Postpones Tour Dates, Cites Mental Health battle

Published

on

Former Beach Boys star Brian Wilson announced on social media Thursday he would be postponing all upcoming tour dates as he continues his battle against mental illness.

“It is no secret that I have been living with mental illness for many decades,” Wilson wrote. “There were times when it was unbearable but with doctors and medications I have been able to live a wonderful, healthy and productive life with support from my family, friends and fans who have helped me through this journey.”

Wilson said over the last year he’s had three surgeries on his back and after the  last surgery “I started feeling strange and it’s been pretty scary for awhile.”

“I was not feeling like myself,” Wilson wrote. “Mentally insecure is how I’d describe it. We’re not sure what is causing it but i do know that it’s not good for me to be on the road right now so I’m heading back to Los Angeles.”

Wilson discussed his mental health with Rolling Stone in a 2016 interview, blaming his problems on taking “bad drugs” when he was younger. “I’ve told a lot of people don’t take psychedelic drugs,” he said. “It’s mentally dangerous to take. I regret having taken LSD. It’s a bad drug.”

Wilson said he would be focusing on rest and recovery while he works with doctors to solve his current medical issue.

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ric Ocasek, lead singer of the rock band The Cars, died Sunday in New York at age 75.

Police said they received a call around 4 p.m. for an unconscious male at a townhouse on East 19th Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Law enforcement sources confirmed the deceased was Ocasek.

Ocasek and his band were inducted into the Rock Hall in 2018. The institution described the band as “hook-savvy with the perfect combo of new wave and classic rock.”

The band had 13 top-40 singles, and Ocasek went on to a successful producing career after The Cars broke up in the late 1980s.

They listed the 19th Street residence for sale earlier this year for more than $15 million.

Award season is kicking off in Hollywood and there’s no better way to usher in the festivities, than with a party. More than eight thousand guests will attend the soiree at LA Live just moments after the show ends.

Sequoia productions is back again to plan the event and spared no expense or detail for the big night. The theme is “Brilliance in Motion” which is reflected in bright, bold colors and dazzling fringe ceiling pieces.

Guests will dine on dishes like the Green Goddess Chop, Grassfed Tenderloin, and SoCal Sliders and Chips from chef Joachim Splichal and Patina Catering Group.

Sterling Vineyards will give guests a personalized bottle of their 2015 Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon. Ferrari Trento is bringing the bubbly with sparkling wine.

Lindt has returned to supply the chocolate and it pairs beautifully with perfectly pulled espresso from Don Francisco.

L’Oreal, Audi, LA Premiere flowers, and Ketel One will also be keeping the guests happy while they celebrate excellence in television. But it’s not all about what the stars will take home. Living Spaces is donating the couches and furniture they supplied for the party to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles and the Hollywood Community Housing Corporation.

The 71st Emmy Awards will air live on Fox Sept. 22nd at 5pm PST.

Published

By

Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison, 250 hours of community service and a $30,000 fine for unlawfully paying $15,000 to improve her daughter’s SAT scores. 

The “Desperate Housewives” actress pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy and fraud connected to a wider college admissions scheme that set the nation ablaze when it was uncovered earlier this year. 

Read Huffman’s full statement on the sentencing, below: 

I accept the court’s decision today without reservation. I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period.

I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children.

I have learned a lot over the last six months about my flaws as a person. My goal now is to serve the sentence that the court has given me. I look forward to doing my community service hours and making a positive impact on my community. I also plan to continue making contributions wherever I can well after those service hours are completed.

I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed.

My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions.
