Imagine Dragons got some backlash for their performance at the CFP National Championship Game, which many felt wasn’t very good. Well, Dan Reynolds, who had a sinus infection for the performance, took to Instagram to respond to the haters, admitting that after looking over the negative posts he felt low and his self-confidence was shot, even hinting that he thought about taking a break or even giving up on the band. But, he says, his daughters changed his mind, noting, “that’s not the lesson I want to teach them,” and that he’s “going to continue to make art and music that I’m proud of.” Keep on, bro!

If you were still holding to hope for Kevin Hart to host the Oscars, he completely obliterated it yesterday. During his appearance on Good Morning America, he told Michael Strahan, “I’m not hosting the Oscars this year…Right now I don’t have the time.” As for the controversy that caused the diminutive comedian to step down, he’s over that, too explaining, “It gets no more energy from me.” Even though Michael continued to press him, Kevin was NOT having it. He said, “I have explained how I’ve evolved, which makes me say I’m over it. I’m not saying how I’ve changed anymore … I’m not giving no more explanation of who I am. I’ve done it. I’ve done it several times … I’m just done.”

We previously reported that Teresa Giudice assured fans she wouldn’t be divorcing her husband Joe Giudice following his deportation to Italy for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. But lately, she’s been putting out signs that she could be moving on from Joe. For starters, she has recently been seen without her wedding ring on. Of course, the missing ring wouldn’t be as much of a red flag if it wasn’t on the heels of rumors that she was seen getting cozy with a younger man at a restaurant in Miami on New Year’s Eve. At the time, an insider claimed that she “had her hands on his leg,” and that the man was even “rubbing her leg” at one point. But it could be nothing, since her lawyer has insisted that it was “innocent,” explaining she was just out celebrating New Year’s Eve with some of her longtime friends.

We’ve been keeping you up to date on rumors that Meghan Markle’s staff find her “difficult” and a little too “up and at ‘em.” But now a “well-connected Royal source” is saying that isn’t true. According to Elle, the media has it all wrong. Meghan’s staff actually enjoys working with her and think she’s a refreshing addition to the Palace. And when it comes to Meghan shaking up the royals, the source insists that she’s “anxious” to learn Royal protocol and taking her role seriously by being receptive to help. Not only that, but the source is also debunking all the rumors about a feud between Meghan and Kate Middleton. “The stories of the two duchesses having a major ongoing feud are just overblown,” the insider adds. “They have enormous respect for each other and are both devoted to representing Her Majesty in the humanitarian and charitable work they do.” i guess to get the the bottom of the rumors and find out the truth, we’ll have to hand out a survey to the staff – circle 1 if you like Meghan, circle 2 if you don’t like Meghan.
