Not only that, but Disney just unveiled the synopsis, and avast ye, this be a treasure trove of plot spoilers:
“Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.”
Well, looks like we best start believing in ghost stories again!
The Trident of Poseidon? Can it get more epic than this?!
We’re so happy that Johnny Depp is on his latest (and greatest?) adventure. Hopefully it yield more booty than Mortdecai…
This is actually a pretty smart move on his part!
Tiger Woods has decided to take a leave of absence from golf because he is disappointed in his performance.
But it’s not JUST his performance that’s been in decline, it’s actually his health!

Not only did he lose a tooth in a freak skiing accident with his GF Lindsey Vonn, but he’s still recovering from the surgery he went through AND he hurt himself AGAIN on top of that.
Talk about some bad luck!
Taking to his personal website, the golf legend wrote:
“The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw. Unfortunately, lately injuries have made that happen too often. This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day.
Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I’ve said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I’m ready, I’ll be back. Next week I will practice at Medalist and at home getting ready for the rest of the year. I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game. I’d like to play The Honda Classic — it’s a tournament in my hometown and it’s important to me — but I won’t be there unless my game is tournament-ready.
That’s not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon. I want to thank the fans in Phoenix and San Diego. They were amazing. I greatly appreciate everyone’s support.”
WOW! That’s actually pretty brave of him to know when to step back from the game.
There are A LOT of people in the sports world who wouldn’t dream of doing that!
Props to you Tiger and we wish you a speedy recovery!

There may be conflicting reports about Bobbi Kristina Brown’s current condition, but one thing is abundantly clear: the love her family and friends are sending her way.
Hollywood has held many celebrations this week leading up to Sunday’s Grammy awards, but Bobbi Kristina’s plight has cast a shadow over the festivities — especially as the anniversary of her mom Whitney Houston’s death nears.

Bobbi Kristina’s godfather and Whitney’s longtime mentor Clive Davis spoke out on Thursday, evoking the painful memories of Whitney’s death in 2012.
“It is terribly sad and it’s just painful to see the Houston family feel such pain again. I have been in touch with the family and offered my support and prayers.”
Deborah Cox, who provided the vocals in Lifetime’s recent Whitney biopic, echoed Davis’ sentiments:
“All I can do is just continue to pray. Pray for her family and pray for comfort and a speedy recovery.”
Jordin Sparks costarred with Whitney in Sparkle, and was one of the first celebs to tweet after Bobbi was found face-down in a bathtub last Saturday. Last night, Sparks repeated her well wishes:
“Let them know that we are praying for them and wishing them nothing but the best and sending all of our good energy towards them.”
Another R&B singer, Estelle, added:
“I really pray for their family — just love and comfort and patience — just give them their space. Let them be in their moment and just give her the kind of love she needs.”
Ciara chimed in:
“So sad. My prayers go out to her family. I’m truly wishing her well. I’m wishing for a miracle for her. I’m praying for a miracle for her. It’s so sad.”
A miracle is what Bobby Brown is praying for his daughter. Her closest family continue to keep vigil over the 21-year-old at Emory University Hospital.

Jerry apparently thought it would be funny to answer his wife’s texts with lyrics from Usher‘s song I Don’t Mind, and OMG he was so right!
And luckily he shared his texts — and Rebecca’s confused reactions — with the world!
LOLz! Love it!

“Devastated by the news about Stuart Scott. You will be missed. #RIPStuartScott”

We have to agree with LeBron on this one – F cancer!
RIP Stuart Scott.
