After scrambling to find a replacement for actor and comedian Kevin Hart, who backed on on Ddecember 6, this year’s Academy Awards ceremony will reportedly not feature a host for the first time since 1989. According to sources, the Oscars will take on a new format, with producers counting on a selection of A-listers who will introduce various segments. One of two things will happen here – nobody will watch or everybody will watch to see the potential train wreck.

Any job can lead to success, that’s what Kelly Clarkson wants you to know. Before she became the first winner of “American idol,” Kelly said she took any job she could get. She explained, “I worked at Six Flags — I did the singing and dancing, like all those shows. Any option that was available to make money singing, I was like, ‘OK.'” But it wasn’t just about singing – she had bills to pay. Kelly added, “I was a cocktail waitress at a comedy club. I’ve worked at a Papa John’s. I’ve worked at a Subway. I did anything that paid. I made any job work. … Even now, when people are like, ‘I can’t find a job,’ I’m like, ‘Well, then, you’re not looking.’ Because if you’re hungry enough and you want electricity, you’ll work anywhere, and so I did.”

Kit Harington is this month’s GQ Australia cover story, so needless to say, our interest was peaked for anything he might have to say about the upcoming final season of the hit HBO series. Kit didn’t give any spoilers, but he basically said the cast was so over it. Kit said, “The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us. Everyone was broken at the end. I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f—ing tiring. We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, ‘Right, I’m f—ing sick of this.’ I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, ‘I’ve had enough now. I love this, it’s been the best thing in my life, I’ll miss it one day – but I’m done.’” Kit can’t wait to have a more normal work schedule, as well as spending more time with his wife, Rose Leslie, who he met on the show and married last June. Kit added, “A lot of people meet their other halves at work. Our work just happened to be this iconic TV show. It dawned on me, recently, and I have no idea if we will, but say me and Rose do have children. They’ll know. They’ll be able to see the genesis of their parents getting together. Which is quite a wonderful thought, really.” I hope they don’t show their kids the “genensis of the parents getting together” until they’re much older because that stuff is way above the PG meter!
