Hillary Clinton gave the subtle ‘bird’ to Donald Trump this week when she held up a Russian fur hat emblazoned with a Soviet-era hammer-and-sickle emblem.

Now the U2 frontman is singing the praises of another Courtney, Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett. Bono was spotted in the crowd getting into Barnett’s ironic ditties at her recent concert in Chicago…

And just in case you haven’t had enough of Ryan Reynolds in the media, the actor is set to star in the most expensive production ever created by Netflix. Six Underground will be an action flick being produced and financed by Michael Bay who is injecting a whopping $125 million into the project.
