Post Malone More Tats, Acting & Tunes in 2020 ... Happy NYE, Everyone!!!

Exclusive
NEW TATS, NEW GOALS
@adamglyn

Post Malone has a lot of plans for the new year -- and it sounds like it involves more ink on his mug ... this after debuting a brand new tat his mom may or may not approve.

The singer was in NYC Tuesday showing off his new face tattoo, which was glistening in the sun after a fresh shave. A journalist tracked him down and asked him about it -- apparently, Post's had this one in the brain chamber for a while and finally pulled the trigger.

It also sounds like it hurt like hell, considering how intricate it is. He tells the camera man there'll be more body art to come in the new year too ... also, he loves his ma.

Post also touched on his recent acting gig, and what might follow in front of the camera in the 2020s. Don't get too excited though ... he insists he's not going full Hollywood, mostly because he's got a face for radio and villainy (especially now). His words, not ours!

POST-PRODUCTION

PM gets into a few other topics, including best albums of the year and what lies ahead for the Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett. He's pretty diplomatic on both ... classic Post.

Best of luck in the new decade and beyond, bud ... keep the good vibes going.

'Friends' Get Your Fix Today ... Or Else You're Outta Luck

Getty

This is it, folks. If you want to want binge-watch "Friends" you better do it today, because the series is off the market for months when the clock strikes 12.

When the ball drops in Times Square, one of the most famous sitcoms in history will be 86'd from the Netflix menu. The reason ... Warner Media owns the 90's series, so it wants to put all 236 episodes on its new streaming service, HBO Max. Thing is ... the service won't launch until May.

Now, if you really just can't wait ... you can buy each episode for $1.99. All 10 seasons will set you back $200.

There's been talk about a "Friends" reunion, especially lately, but nothing's been confirmed.  Jennifer Aniston recently said, "We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is. So we're just trying. We're working on something."

Holiday Feasts Prez Candidates Stuffing Their Face Here's What They're Full Of

As all the holiday food comes your way over these next couple weeks, feast your eyes on what presidential candidates (past and present) chose to eat on the campaign trail.

Everyone enjoys themselves a corn dog, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Rick Perry. But, don't forget about the turkey leg -- a holiday classic -- which is right up Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang's alley. Can you tell? Looks like they couldn't get a big enough bite.

Of course, pork chops was another favorite of candidates over the past few years. Folks like Kamala Harris, John Delaney and others made sure to get in some big bites when they could.

And, if you're really interested in a walk down memory lane ... take a gander at what past candidates like Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Chris Christie and, of course, Barack Obama were into grubbing on back in the day.

Lee Mendelson 'Peanuts' Producer Dead at 86

Lee Mendelson -- the man behind over 50 Charlie Brown TV specials -- died on Christmas Day after a long battle with cancer ... according to his family.

The esteemed "Peanuts" producer reportedly passed away at his home in Hillsborough, CA. His son, Jason, says ... "It wasn’t great for us, but to have him pass on Christmas really ties into his history and legacy."

Along with producing the holiday television classic, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" in 1965, Lee also wrote the lyrics to “Christmas Time Is Here” ... the song famously featured in the special. The special brought Mendelson the first of his 12 Emmy Awards.

Mendelson earned his 12th Emmy in 2015 for “It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown.” He's also won 4 Peabody Awards and was nominated for an Oscar and 2 Grammys.

Lee's relationship with "Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz began in the '60s on the heels of Mendelson's acclaimed documentary about Willie Mays. Schultz saw it and agreed to work with Lee on another documentary ... but ended up producing the 'Charlie Brown Christmas' special instead.

The success of that led to 1966’s “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and 1973’s “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” among many others.

Mendelson teamed with "Garfield" creator Jim Davis in the '80s to produce the first animated short featuring the grumpy cat ... and went on to help launch the "Garfield and Friends" series in the early '90s.

Lee produced several documentaries and network specials outside of children's programming, as well. He's survived by his wife, Ploenta, 4 children, a stepson and 8 grandchildren.

Mendelson was 86.

Stick 'Em Up Santa Arrested After Robbing Bank ... Spreading Xmas Cheer and Loot

Mega

A Santa look-alike pulled a Robin Hood this week by robbing a bank and then making it rain for unsuspecting pedestrians.

David Wayne Oliver sauntered into an Academy Bank in Colorado Springs, allegedly threatened a teller with a weapon and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The 65-year-old faux Santa then walked outside and hurled the loot in the air, screaming "Merry Christmas" all the while, to the amazement of people who happened to walk by. Most of the people who scooped up the money returned it to the bank.

Oliver then casually walked to a nearby Starbucks where he waited for cops to come and hook him up.

Oliver is being held on $10,000 bail.

And, to all a goodnight.

Kourtney Kardashian Gets New Pup for Xmas ... But Naming Her's a Mission!!!

One of Kourtney Kardashian's Christmas presents barked this year ... so get ready for some serious cuteness overload.

Kourtney introduced her new puppy to the world Thursday ... and she's truly a beaut!!! Hard to tell if she's a golden retriever or a lab ... but cute is cute. There's only one problem ... Kourt doesn't know what to name her. Seriously, she captioned her pics of the pup with her kids, "But what should we name her?"

Here are some suggestions ... Dollar? Billion?! TRILLION?! Fine ... Goldilocks works too.

Anyway ... looks like the pup's already getting spoiled. Sure, by tons of hugs and kisses. But, look at the Hermes box next to her!!!

President Trump Edited Out of 'Home Alone 2' Actually Happened in 2014

TMZ.com

4:44 PM PT -- The CBC says it actually made the cut back in 2014 and long before Trump announced he was running for president. The CBC says, "The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot."

The CBC goes on to say, "These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President."

4:28 PM PT -- Trump, predictably, had something to say about all this:

President Trump has been 86'd from 'Home Alone 2' by Canadian TV ... but the reason the network is giving for the omission is ... well, sketchy.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation removed Trump's cameo in the classic Christmas movie. The CBC claims it cut out the 10-second cameo in order to make room for commercials. We're not buyin' what they're sellin'. Trump has famously disrespected our neighbors to the north ... from the Canadian PM on down.

Hawk-eyed viewers first noticed that the scene -- which shows Trump giving Macaulay Culkin directions in the then-Trump-owned Plaza Hotel -- was nowhere to be seen and they immediately took to social media -- some voicing approval while others were irate. Someone tweeted, "Just watched 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York' recorded of @CBC and they edited out the @realDonaldTrump scene. God bless us EVERYONE!"

Others called the move "Orwellian." Either way ... Trump's probably not gonna like the move, especially given what he said Tuesday during a call with overseas troops. The Prez bragged about his cameo saying, "Well, I'm in 'Home Alone 2' and a lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas."

Except in Canada, eh?

Peloton Hubby I Got My Real GF What I Got My Actress Wife ... A Peloton Bike!!!

The actor who played the Peloton husband decided to try his hand at art imitating life, because in his real life he gave his girlfriend an Xmas present ... a Peloton bike!!!

Sean Hunter dared to test the social media attack squad that skewered him after acting in an ad where a husband got his wife the exercise bike. As you know, Peloton justified the ad by saying it promoted health, but it pulled the commercial nonetheless.

Sean said, "Here's hoping this goes over better the second time ... Merry Christmas to my actual girlfriend (pls don't leave me)."

GF Cassidy Baras seemed pleased, but then again so did Sean's pretend wife.

SURPRISE!!!
PELOTON

Sean has said he's been coping the best he could with the blowback from the ad, saying, "My 5 seconds of air time created an array of malicious feedback that is all associated with my face."

The actress in the ad has fared way better ... she's done a high-profile commercial and got a gig on a soap.

Lottery Winner Xmas Shopper Scores $250k!!!

A North Carolina man got a bonus when he went shopping for Xmas dinner -- $250,000!!!

Michael Rosenbrock went to a grocery store in Mint Hill where he bought all the traditional stuff ... ham, stuffing, the works. Oh, and he picked up what he pretty much always gets when he shops ... a lottery ticket.

When Michael got home, he scratched off the 20X The Cash ticket and it look like he came up goose eggs. Michael said, "I didn't think I won anything at first ... It's a good thing I always enter my tickets into the second-chance drawings or I would have thrown it away."

Lucky he didn't ... the ticket scored him a quarter of a million bucks.

Michael's already claimed the ticket. After taxes, he walked away with $176,876.

As for what he plans to do with the loot, he wants to start a nonprofit, saying, "Clean water, food to eat, a roof over our head. Doing nonprofit work is something I've always wanted to do."

A worthy winner, for sure.

Kanye West Sunday Service Choir Drops 'Jesus is Born'

Breaking News
TMZ.com

The wait is over ... Kanye West and his Sunday Service choir have finally dropped its "Jesus is Born" gospel album.

Kanye had everyone waiting with anticipation since he teased the album in an interview back in October. The 19-track album hit all major digital streaming platforms today ... just in time for Christmas. Instead of going with a major label to release his album, Ye chose a New Jersey-based Indie distributor, Vydia.

Some of the track titles include "Count Your Blessings," "That's How the Good Lord Works" and "Satan, We're Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down." Kanye, of course, dropped his "Jesus is King" album back in October after many delays. That album featured 11 tracks.

Yeezy had a massive album listening event at The Forum in L.A. when that album dropped. Fans were also treated to a screening of his "Jesus is King" IMAX project.

'TIS THE SEASON

Kanye and his choir most recently hit up the Lincoln Center and performed "Mary." As we reported ... the stage was decked out in plants, over 100 choir members and props to tell the story of Jesus' birth from the eyes of his mother. There was also a rendition of "The Little Drummer Boy."

Martin Scorsese TROLLED by Daughter ... Isn't Your Xmas Gift Marvel-ous?!

TMZ.com

Martin Scorsese got absolutely owned on Christmas ... by his own daughter, who poked fun at her pops with some simple gift wrapping paper.

The famed director's daughter, Francesca, shared on Twitter the wrapping paper she used for Martin's gift ... and it's hilarious -- Marvel Comics!!! In case you missed it ... earlier this year, Martin created one helluva firestorm when he said Marvel movies aren't cinema.

It was the comment heard around the world ... cause pretty much the entire universe came after Martin for shading Marvel films. Things got so bad ... the "Taxi Driver" and "Goodfellas" director was forced to write an op-ed in the New York Times to explain himself.

The storm has since passed ... that is until Martin's 20-year-old daughter went there and used wrapping paper featuring Hulk and Captain America.

No word if the gift's an "Avengers" DVD set.

Xmas Miracle Shelter Dog Gets Adopted After 5 Years!!!

Fresno Bully Rescue

Seamus the pit bull mix has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas ... he got adopted after spending 5 years in a shelter.

The 9-year-old pooch was scooped up at the Fresno Bully Rescue after spending half his life in a cage at the facility.

It's a no-kill rescue shelter that houses 40 dogs. The folks at the shelter have placed a number of other animals in foster homes.

Fresno Bully Rescue

As for Seamus, it's a Godsend. He's had trouble handling the weather of late ... the winter is too cold and the summers are too hot for him. Now he has a home and lots of comfort.

A little about Seamus ... he loves doughnut holes, taking long walks and pilfering toys out of the shelter bin on he way back to his cage.

Rescues rule. Merry Xmas, Seamus!!!

Prince William, Kate, George and Charlotte We're Celebrating Xmas ... Other Royals Noticeably Missing

Getty

The Royals have had a tough year no doubt, but at least some of them tried to put on a happy face for Xmas.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte clutched the hand of parents William and Kate as they made their way to church. They joined grandpa Prince Charles as they entered the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Queen's Sandringham estate, about 100 miles from London.

Prince Louis wasn't there ... he's 18 months old and too young for the festivities. Louis hung out with Kate's parents.

Also missing ... Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie ...they're spending the holiday in Canada with her mom. Prince Andrew was not there, but he attended a church service with the Queen earlier in the day with Prince Charles.

Kevin Spacey I Killed It This Year ... Here's How You Can Too

KILL THEM WITH KINDNESS
Kevin Spacey

Here's Kevin Spacey with another cryptic video on Christmas Eve ... returning as Frank Underwood and reminding everyone out there to "kill them with kindness."

For the second year in a row, Kevin posted a bizarre video the day before Xmas ... once again slipping into his former "House of Cards" character to deliver a strange message.

Kevin says he's had a pretty good year and is happy to have his health back, and says he's made some huge changes in his life.

Spacey says he's going to cast a vote in 2020 "for more good in this world" ... then suggests people should "kill them with kindness" the next time someone does something you don't like, instead of going on the attack.

DON'T RUSH TO JUDGMENT
Kevin Spacey

We've seen this kind of display before from Kevin ... last Christmas Eve, he posted a bizarre vid urging people not to rush to judgment after being accused of groping an 18-year-old male in a Nantucket bar.

As we first reported ... Kevin scored a huge victory this July when prosecutors in Massachusetts dropped their criminal case against him.

Spacey also dodged a charge in a sexual assault case in Los Angeles in October, because the alleged victim died during the investigation. He's still the target of an investigation in London.

NBA's Tacko Fall 7'5" Giant Conducts Boston Orchesta ... Crushes 'Sleigh Ride'

Breaking News

Tacko Fall is VERSATILE!!!

Check out the 7'5" Boston Celtics rookie -- a beloved fan-favorite -- taking over the famous Boston Pops Orchestra for their Xmas show ... AND KILLIN' IT!!

The 24-year-old -- born in Senegal -- took the stage at Symphony Hall in a size 48 double extra-long tuxedo ... and temporarily filled in for conductor Keith Lockhart for a rendition of "Sleigh Ride."

HE EVEN BUSTED OUT A SPIN MOVE!!! GIVE THIS GUY A CONTRACT!

Fall absolutely smashed his orchestra debut -- and the crowd went wild for him.

After the show, Fall gave props to Shaquille O'Neal -- who conducted back in 2010 --  telling the Boston Globe he prepared by studying Shaq's performance.

Shout out to Tacko ... one of the nicest guys in pro sports.

Fall was a college sensation back at UCF but didn't get picked in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Celtics signed him to a deal and he did well in the NBA's summer league -- eventually making his NBA debut in October.

Bottom line, the people love Tacko!!

Oh, and Merry Christmas everyone!
