Many of his supporters noticed the change, some commenting under the image that he was unrecognizable. Several Instagrammers also called him “sick,” “skinny” and “weak.” Some even offered prayers and kind words.

Although the reason for the look is unclear, some speculated that he may be preparing for a new film. One person wrote, “Definitely he changed his look, maybe he is getting ready for a new movie.” Another said, “He’s not sick he said he’s doing this for a movie.”

On the other hand, a few thought Depp, 54, looked his age. “He’s just a man showing his age. Been there done that haha,” someone replied.

According to People, the entertainer is healthy. “Johnny is having a great time on the tour playing with the guys,” a source told the publication.

Depp has been performing with the band, which includes rock legends Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Alice Cooper, since 2015. Their current tour runs through July.

Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to rape, criminal sex act charges

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning to rape and criminal sex act charges in New York.

>> Read more trending news

Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in a hotel room and forcing another to perform oral sex in his office, according to The Associated Press.

Weinstein turned himself in to authorities last month. He was charged with one count each of first-degree rape, third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sex act.

His bail was previously set at $1 million, allowing him to remain free while he awaits trial.

He has denied allegations that he forced himself on women. His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, last month challenged the credibility of the alleged victims and said his client is confident that he’s going to clear his name. 

>> Harvey Weinstein indicted on first-degree rape, other charges by New York grand jury, reports say

Dozens of people have accused Weinstein of inappropriate sexual behavior, ranging from allegations of rape to claims of sexual harassment, after the Times published a report last year detailing complaints made against Weinstein over nearly three decades. Weinstein, who co-founded entertainment company Miramax, was ousted from his position at The Weinstein Company in the wake of the Times report. 

>> Harvey Weinstein investigations launched in London, New York

New York police opened an investigation into Weinstein in 2015, after a Filipina-Italian model told officers that she was groped by Weinstein without consent. Authorities later said they declined to press charges in the case because of a lack of evidence.

Police said last year that they were working to learn of any additional complaints against Weinstein.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The Craig McDean-shot cover is only the surface. In the magazine, Grande talks about her difficult year in which 22 people died and 59 others were injured when a male suicide bomber self-detonated outside Manchester Arena. 

“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it's a real thing,” she said. “I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn't even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn't even say anything. I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

Grande also opened up about her anxiety, which she says got worse after the attack.

“My anxiety has anxiety… I've always had anxiety. I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been.”

Grande recently released a music video for “No More Tears Left to Cry,” her lead single from her upcoming album. “Sweetener.” The last shot in the video includes a worker bee in tribute to the city.

The July issue of British Vogue is on newsstands June 8.

People reported that a spokesperson for the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station said 17-month-old Eissa Al Mana was with his father at the Nobu hotel when Jackson called police around 10 p.m. Saturday. Jackson, 52, was not at the scene, according to police.

“Deputies were there (and) called to the scene. They decided the child was OK and they left,” the spokesperson told People.

E! News reported that Eissa remained at the hotel when officers left, according to a watch commander with the Malibu County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Jackson’s brother, Randy Jackson, police were called when a nanny contacted Janet Jackson. Randy Jackson told “Entertainment Tonight” that the nanny was afraid of Al Mana’s behavior and locked herself in the bathroom to call Eissa’s mother.

“(She was) terrified by his behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet,” Randy Jackson said.

Janet Jackson confirmed her split from Al Mana in May 2017, months after she gave birth to Eissa in January.

The musician is still on the road for her State of the World Tour 2018. She teased that she was in the studio working on new music earlier this month.

'Sherlock' actor Benedict Cumberbatch prevents mugging of delivery cyclist

Benedict Cumberbatch plays iconic detective Sherlock Holmes on the television series “Sherlock.” But instead of solving crimes, the actor prevented one near his fictional home of 221B Baker Street, The Sun reported Sunday.

>> Read more trending news

Cumberbatch, 41, foiled an attempted robbery by fighting off a group of assailants attempting to mug a delivery cyclist, CNN reported.

Cumberbatch and his wife, Sophie Hunter, were riding in an Uber when the actor spotted four muggers attacking a Deliveroo cyclist on Marylebone High Street and jumped out of the vehicle, the Sun reported. According to witnesses, Cumberbatch jumped out of the vehicle, yelled at the attackers and then dragged them off the victim.

Uber driver Manuel Dias told The Sun that “the cyclist was lucky, Benedict’s a superhero.”

Dias, who also got out of the vehicle to help, called the incident surreal.

“Here was Sherlock Holmes fighting off four attackers just round the corner from Baker Street," Dias told the Sun. "I had hold of one lad and Benedict another. He seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He was very brave. 

“Benedict was courageous, brave and selfless. If he hadn’t stepped in the cyclist could have been seriously injured.”

Deliveroo thanked Cumberbatch in a tweet Saturday.

"Deliveroo riders are heroes -- their safety is our priority and any violence against them is totally unacceptable," the delivery company said.

Robert Kennedy assassination: Dion's 'Abraham, Martin and John' helped heal a nation in turmoil

Dion DiMucci touched a chord with Americans as they coped with the turbulent summer of 1968. His recording of the Dick Holler-written song, “Abraham, Martin and John,” was a poignant tribute to the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy.

But Dion almost didn’t record the song, the New York Daily News reported. He questioned whether the lyrics were too raw for a country still reeling from the assassinations of King and Robert Kennedy, and he didn’t like the arrangement.

“My first response was that it was exploiting or trying to cash in on these tragedies,” Dion, 78, told the Daily News. “And I thought it was kind of trite.”

But when he played the demo to his wife, Dion changed his opinion. 

“She said, ‘It sounds like a gospel to me. It’s about a state of love that does exist, and it’s for us to make it real,’” he told the newspaper.

The song was released in August 1968 and by December was No. 4 on the Billboard charts. It sold more than 1 million copies and was covered by artists from Bob Dylan to Whitney Houston, the Daily News reported.

Holler, distressed after hearing of Kennedy’s murder in June 1968, sat at his piano in St. Petersburg, Florida, and recorded a demo.

“It all happened simultaneously, the music and the lyrics,” Holler, 83, told the Daily News. “I just wrote it that fast. And I was a bit astonished by that.

“We returned to the office to get our bearings. And when I left that day, and went home, I had the song.”

Dion was an unlikely singer for the song. Although he was famous for songs like “The Wanderer” and “Runaround Sue,” he was a recovering heroin addict without a record contract and had not scored a big hit since “Ruby Ruby” reached No. 2 in February 1963.

Holler’s biggest success as a songwriter had been the 1966 novelty, “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron,” recorded by the Royal Guardsmen.

After being convinced to sing the song, Dion recorded it in one take.

“They wanted me to (try) another,” Dion told the Daily News. “I said, ‘Listen to it. I got it.’”

The song hit a nerve.

“The country was in a very restless period,” Dion told the Daily News. “That was one of the reasons for the arrangement. I felt it was a handle to some kind of salvation, to link us to a higher reality. To touch our hearts.”
