Just as she promised, Ellen DeGeneres addressed multiple reports about a toxic work culture on her show when the program returned yesterday. After sarcastically sharing that she had a great…super terrific summer, Ellen went right into the reports of a toxic workplace and investigation in her first monologue back. Ellen said she learned that things happened that never should have. She’s so sorry to the people that were affected, took responsibility for what happened and pledged the new season would mark the beginning of a new chapter.

I’m so excited to invite you to join me and some VERY special guests for #FightLyme, a virtual concert to benefit the Lyme community. 100% of the proceeds go to The Avril Lavigne Foundation and Global Lyme Alliance. Since Lyme disease is a global pandemic but not a global priority, we need all the help we can get to eradicate Lyme. Not being able to bring my show to everyone in person this year, I thought it was a good time to have some fun while we raise funds. Please join us on October 24. Tickets are on sale now at www.AVRILLAVIGNE.COM, along with an exclusive event t-shirt and a limited number of VIP Soundcheck passes! Your ticket purchase helps us save lives. See you at the show!

Billie Eilish has announced a collection of action figures based on her singles Bad Guy and All the Good Girls Go to Hell. The dolls are available for pre-order right now and both are expected to ship in 10 weeks. Eilish is currently hard at work on her follow-up album. She did say she’s not interested in dropping a bummer COVID record so it might be a bit before we hear the full-length record from her.
