Nathaniel Rateliff: 5 Things About The Blues Rock Singer Making His ‘SNL’ Debut


Nathaniel Rateliff is bringing his guitar and soulful voice to ‘SNL’! The St. Louis native will be joining host Regina King on the Feb. 13 episode.

Nathaniel Rateliff, 42, is set to take the stage at SNL for the first time! With a unique sound that blends blues, folk, R&B and rock, Nathaniel will undoubtedly be serenading the audience. The St. Louis native took to social media to announce the news, posting an image of his name alongside host Regina King‘s. “Live from New York…,” he captioned the snap, clearly thrilled for the the big move. Learn more about the singer who’s song was just featured in Justin Timberlake‘s new movie Palmer.

1. He’s from St. Louis. Nathaniel David Rateliff was born on October 7, 1978 in St. Louis, Missouri in a devoutly religious family. The future star was musically inclined from a young age, learning how to play guitar on his own. He later moved to Denver at the age of 18 before returning home to Missouri and working a number of odd jobs.

2. His song is in the movie Palmer. His latest track “Redemption” can be heard in Justin Timberlake‘s Apple TV+ movie Palmer. The end-credits tune has even been garnering some awards season buzz, particularly around the Academy Awards. “For me, the song is about what I saw in the film, and what I see out there in the world, of continuing to struggle until we find some kind of peace and some kind of answer,” he said in an interview to Variety. “It’s about hope and connection. At the end of the song, there’s the line ‘we keep running until we learn to find peace’,” he added. The song was inspired by Justin’s character, and the former N’Sync member

3. He’s divorced. While Nathaniel kept details of his marriage and divorce private, he confirmed a 2018 split and shared how it inspired his music. His wife filed for divorce after a period of separation. It took me a long time to be honest with myself and know that [writing about something] is part of my process of dealing with things,” he shared with Esquire, explaining he was on tour at the time. “I remember writing the songs [for that set] in the desert and it was almost like you’re writing with this prophetic sense, letting your subconscious go places…But I was like, ‘Well, I can’t actually say that. That gives away too much information.’”

4. He’s struggled with sobriety. Nathaniel has confessed to drinking heavily in the past, especially when working with late producer Richard Swift on 2015’s Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats. “I’d say my worst vice is still drinking…I just do it less,” he admitted in Feb. 2020. “I’m just not trying to drink myself to death these days. I don’t want to be a person who totally gives up drinking for ever,” he added, noting that his past lifestyle was “not sustainable.”

5. He was also part of a group. In addition to performing solo, Nathaniel earned some serious buzz starting back in 2013 was part of Nathaniel Radcliffe and the Night Sweats. The latter gave his sound a soulful R&B vibe, with the Night Sweats (a band of seven) also acting as his band on occasions. They’ve played on and off together over the years.

‘The Masked Singer’ Preview: The Russian Dolls Reveal A New Clue — Watch

Russian Dolls


The Russian Dolls read a brand-new clue in this EXCLUSIVE preview of ‘The Masked Singer’ quarterfinals, and guest panelist Rob Riggle is convinced he knows their identities.

The quarterfinals have arrived on The Masked Singer, and the Russian Dolls will take the stage once again during the May 12 episode. After their performance, a new clue is revealed by “mail” sent by the biggest fan in this EXCLUSIVE preview. When host Nick Cannon opens up the mailbox, there’s another mailbox inside, a nod to the Russian Dolls.

One of the Russian Dolls reads the letter inside the second mailbox. “I was a fan of you individually, but when I saw you band together in person — wow! Like I can’t even. Love you to the moon and back again,” the letter says.

Guest panelist Rob Riggle doesn’t believe he even needs this clue to guess the identities of the Russian Dolls. “Clues are for suckers. I don’t need them,” he says. He thinks he knows exactly who the Russian Dolls are.

“Bet this all day. Bet it twice on Sunday. That’s Devo,” Rob says. Devo is a rock band that rose to fame in the 1970s and 1980s. The band is best known for their hit song “Whip It.”

Nick isn’t convinced that Rob is right on this one. “Ken, this really is your friend,” Nick jokes. This makes Ken Jeong cackle.

The Russian Dolls changed the game from their very first performance of “The Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson. One Russian Doll started out singing the song, but a second Russian Doll later revealed himself during the performance. The Russian Dolls debuted a third member in the wildcard round. They’ve been stealing the show from the start.

The final 5 of season 5 are Russian Dolls, Chameleon, Black Swan, Piglet, and Yeti. At the end of the May 12 episode, one of the masked singers will be eliminated. The rest will move on to the season 5 semi-finals. The Masked Singer season 5 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on FOX.

‘Siesta Key’: Chloe Reveals Why She Left Season 4 After Filming Took A Toll On Her Mental Health

Previews for season 4 of ‘Siesta Key’ show Chloe Trautman announcing that she’ll be leaving the show in the middle of filming, and she dished all about it in our EXCLUSIVE interview.

“I’m at a point where I really don’t want to be a part of this anymore,” Chloe Trautman says in the trailer for season 4 of Siesta Key. “Farewell everyone.” While the details surrounding Chloe’s unexpected departure are still vague, she dished more about the decision in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife. In the months leading up to filming, Chloe underwent an extreme mental and physical lifestyle change. She lost 50 pounds and cut “toxic” people out of her life. However, when filming for Siesta Key began again in Nov. 2020, she noticed that the “old Chloe” was starting to come back.

“In that environment, I have always been the ‘old Chloe,’ and it was like oil and water mixing filming and the new me,” she explained. “Well, I don’t like to say ‘new me,’ I like to say ‘true me.’ This season, you really see that battle of me trying to stay the course with the internal work that I’ve done. But I’m not perfect and I definitely have some bumps this season. Overall, I’m really proud of myself for putting myself out there and putting my mental health first. I think, more than ever, that’s such an important message to send — no matter what you’re doing in your life, if you’re placing yourself in an environment that’s not for your highest good, walk away from it. I’m just proud that I’ll represent that this season.”

Chloe did make the difficult decision to walk away. She said that the lack of support from her friends, who were skeptical about her transformation, was what ultimately led to the decision. “They weren’t as supportive as I think they could’ve been,” Chloe admitted. “Understandably, they were skeptical — they were wondering if this was just a phase. But for me, it just really built up. Every week, all the cast parties we’d go to, it would just build up over and over and over again. It just got to a point where I was like, ‘Alright, guys, stop trying to tear me down.’ When I didn’t feel like I had enough support from my friends and cast and production, I took a big step back.”

Luckily, it was the right decision, and Chloe told that it was “extremely necessary” for her. “I feel like I did the most work on myself in that time when I took a step back,” she revealed. “To me, in your true power, you should be able to place yourself in any environment and still stand true to who you are.”

Chloe also dished about the “breaking point” that led her to transform her lifestyle and become the person who she is today. “[In March 2020], our friend group went to Aspen and I was 50 pounds heavier than I am right now,” she explained. “I was skiing down a mountain and I was so out of shape, and I ended up falling and really hurting myself. It was in that moment that I cried out to God for help. Then, I went through a breakup with my ex-boyfriend of almost four years and my grandmother, who passed away, came to me and spoke to me on her birthday in June. My life just changed. The right people started to come into my life. I stopped drinking. I stopped partying. I really stepped back from any toxic environment or friendships I was in, too.”

Now, Chloe is “really excited” to show Siesta Key viewers the new version of herself. “I can’t wait to show people how, when you heal yourself, it’s truly the greatest thing you can ever do,” she gushed. “And how important it is to take time for yourself and mental health and meditating and all those beautiful things.” Siesta Key returns on May 12 at 8:00 p.m. on MTV.

Tom Brady Honors Ex Bridget Moynahan On Mother’s Day With Blended Family Photo


On Mother’s Day, Tom Brady made sure to honor the women he thinks are the ‘greatest of all time’ – his wife, Gisele Bündchen, and his ex – and mother of his oldest son — Bridget Moynahan.

Tom Brady didn’t leave anyone out of his Mother’s Day messages. On Sunday (May 9), the NFL icon took time to honor all the amazing mothers in his life, including his ex, Bridget Moynahan. “Happy Mother’s Day,” Tom, 43, captioned a photo he posted to his Instagram Stories. In the pic, Tom and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, stand next to his 13-year-old son, Jack, and his mother. It was a sweet, blended family photo and a lovely sentiment from Tom to his ex-girlfriend on this special day.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback also paid tribute to Gisele, 40, in his Instagram Story (“My numero uno,” he captioned a photo of the supermodel snuggling her and Tom’s kids, Ben, 11, and Vivian, 8) and with a touching post that featured all his kids. “Happy Mother’s Day, [Gisele],” Tom captioned the black and white shot of all five of them on the beach. “You love us and support us like no other. Have a special day! [heart emoji] [heart emoji].”

Along with Bridget and Gisele, Tom celebrated his mother, 76-year-old Galynn Patricia Brady. Tom posted a photo of Gisele hugging Gaylnn. “Happy Mother’s Day [heart emoji] to the best moms in the world!!”

Though Tom and Bridget called it quits in late 2006, the two have remained on good terms. However, it’s not every day that Tom makes a public gesture of affection towards his ex, so it was quite a moment when he wished her a “Happy Birthday” on April 29. That day, Bridget turned 50, and Tom celebrated by posting a photo of her alongside their son Jack to his Instagram Story. “Happy Birthday,” he captioned the photo. “We hope you have a great day!”

Months after Tom and Bridget split, the couple revealed that she was pregnant with his child. She gave birth to Jack in August 2007, right as Tom was starting his relationship with Gisele. “It was very hard for my wife to think she fell in love with this guy, and now this guy’s ex-girlfriend’s pregnant,” he said in a 2020 interview. “And it was very challenging for my son’s mom because she didn’t envision that either. But I think we all made the best of the situation, and fortunately, he’s the most amazing son.”
