Entertainment:  Carrie Underwood, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jumanji

Carrie Underwood had a bad fall this past November. It was said she broke her wrist in the fall.  But we are finding out it was much worse than previously thought.  In a Blog post this week, Carrie revealed that she injured her face too.  She said she would spare fans the "gruesome details" but added that the doctor had to put between "40-50 stiches in".  Carrie also said she is "still healing and not quite looking the same".  She is probably prepping her fans for when she does decide to step in front of the camera.  We wish for a speedy recovery.

From the domestic box office: it was a close battle, but the alliance was strong with the force. Luke Skywalker managed to hold off Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the world rang in another year.  As Grace Lee mentioned earlier this morning, Star Wars has blasted thru the one billion dollar mark in three weeks time.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi retained first place for the four-day New Year's holiday weekend, bringing in $68.3 million. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was close in second place with $66.5 million.
Expect the global numbers for Jumanji to go up as China gets to see the movie in the theatres.  The stars are still drumming up press for their new movie. 
As a matter of fact, 'The Rock' posted on Instagram: Good hard core leg training in the #WestCoastIronParadise before I head out to China tonight. Grateful to grind and kick off 2018 right. Always "Wrestling out of Hawaii" Beijing here I come. #Jumanji

Bruno Mars posted this video to Instagram... with the caption "This is me judging 2018, then realizing all the endless possibilities." The Roosevelt High School grad continues his 24k Magic World Tour in Mexico at the end of the month; he will be back in the US at the Park Theatre in Las Vegas on Valentine's Day.
There is also a lot of speculation and buzz about Bruno Mars possibly winning the album of the year award for the Grammys. Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z are in there, too but may wind up splitting the "rap" vote making it easier for Bruno Mars.
