One Person Was Killed in a Stage Collapse Before a Radiohead Concert


RADIOHEAD was supposed to play an outdoor show in Toronto on Saturday evening, but it was canceled after a portion of the stage collapsed earlier in the afternoon.


--One person was killed, and three more suffered non-life threatening injuries.


 --The man who died was a member of Radiohead's road crew.  The band posted a Facebook message saying, quote, "We have all been shattered by the loss of Scott Johnson, our friend and colleague.


--"He was a lovely man, always positive, supportive and funny . . . a highly skilled and valued member of our great road crew.  We will miss him very much.  Our thoughts and love are with Scott's family and all those close to him."


--According to reports, his body was trapped when "a scaffolding-type structure collapsed about 40 to 60 feet above the stage.  Officials are still investigating what happened . . . but there were no storms or strong winds in the area at the time.


--If there's a bright side, it's that the gates weren't officially open yet.  Obviously, the situation could've been much worse if the venue had been filled to capacity.  The show was sold out, and more than 40,000 fans were expected. 


Lindsay Lohan Made Light of Her "Exhaustion" on Twitter This Weekend


I wonder how many more years we're going to be starting LINDSAY LOHAN stories with the phrase "Here we go again"?  Because guess what?  Here we go again . . .


--On Friday morning, paramedics rushed to Lindsay's hotel room because someone called 911 after knocking on her door and not getting an answer.


--But this might be one of those rare cases with Lindsay where it's not as bad as it seems.  Her rep says she was just EXHAUSTED.


 --Here's his statement . . . quote, "She was on set at 7:00 P.M. [the previous night] and worked through the night until 8:00 A.M.


--"She took a nap before shooting her final scene.  Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution.  Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration."


--Lindsay was NOT hospitalized, and was back on the set later that day.  She also tried to make light of the situation on Twitter Saturday. 


--She said, quote, "Note to self.. After working 85 hours in 4 days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door...


--"Hopefully they're cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down."



Julianne Hough Said "Love You" to Ryan Seacrest on His Radio Show & He Did Not Reciprocate


JULIANNE HOUGH was on her boyfriend RYAN SEACREST'S radio show on Friday to promote her new movie"Rock of Ages".  


 --At the end of the interview, Ryan said, quote, "I'm very proud of you.  Go see Julianne in the movie.  Thanks, Darling."


--And then it happened.  Julianne put Ryan on the spot in front of his entire listening audience when she said, quote, "All right.  Love you.  Bye."


--And did Ryan rise to the challenge?  Nope.  His response was . . . and I quote . . . "Bye."  (!!!)


--After taking some ribbing from staffers in the studio, Ryan said he didn't say "I love you" back because, quote, "you guys won't shut up!"



"Rock of Ages" and "That's My Boy" Flopped at the Box Office


Father's Day weekend wasn't kind to the new comedies at the box office.  TOM CRUISE'S "Rock of Ages" made just $15 million in 3rd place . . . and ADAM SANDLER'S "That's My Boy" did even worse with $13 million in 5th place.


--Instead, the holdovers from last week took the top spots once again.  "Madagascar 3" won the weekend with $35.5 million . . . and"Prometheus" bagged another $20.2 million in 2nd place.  Here are this week's Top 10 movies . . .


1.)  "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted", $35.5 million.  Up to $120 million in its 2nd week.


2.)  "Prometheus", $20.2 million.  Up to $88.9 million in its 2nd week.


3.)  (NEW)  "Rock of Ages", $15.1 million. 


4.)  "Snow White and the Huntsman", $13.8 million.  Up to $123 million in its 3rd week.


5.)  (NEW)  "That's My Boy", $13 million.



Nobody Is Remaking "Twilight" Yet


Believe it or not, there are already rumors that "Twilight" movie studio Summit Entertainment is planning a REBOOT of the franchise.  (--The last movie in the series doesn't even come out until November.)


--Obviously, this is complete B.S.  And Summit issued a statement saying, quote, "We are not remaking 'Twilight'.  We will happily support [author] STEPHANIE MEYER if she decides to proceed in any way.  But this will be the last one unless that should change."
