NEW YORK  — Country singer Joe Diffie, who had a string of hits in the 1990s with chart-topping ballads and honky-tonk singles like “Home” and “Pickup Man,” has died after testing positive for COVID-19. He was 61.

Diffie on Friday announced he had contracted the coronavirus, becoming the first country star to go public with such a diagnosis. Diffie’s publicist Scott Adkins said the singer died Sunday in Nashville, Tennessee, due to complications from the virus.

Diffie, a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was a member of the Grand Ole Opry for more than 25 years. His hits included “Honky Tonk Attitude,” “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die),” “Bigger Than the Beatles” and “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets).”

His mid-90s albums “Honkey Tonk Attitude” and “Third Rock From the Sun” went platinum. Eighteen of Diffie’s singles landed in the top 10 on the country charts, with five going No. 1. In his 2013 single “1994,” Jason Aldean name-checked the ’90s country mainstay.

Diffie shared in a Grammy award for best country collaboration for the song “Same Old Train,” with Merle Haggard, Marty Stuart and others. His last solo album was 2010’s “The Bluegrass Album: Homecoming.”

“Joe was a real true honky tonk hero to every country artist alive today,” singer John Rich said in a statement. “No one sang our music better than he did, and to see his life and artistry cut short is beyond tragic. He was loved, cherished and respected by all of country music and beyond.”

Deanna Carter said she was “shell shocked” by the news and had hoped to perform again with Diffie this year. “He was a powerhouse that stopped people in their tracks, both on and off stage,” she said in a statement.

Diffie is survived by his wife, Tara Terpening Diffie, and seven children from four marriages.

Presently, the entire nation is going through a challenging phase, given the Coronavirus lockdown. While the country is under a lockdown, there seems to be unrest, looking at how some people are still out on the roads, trying to travel back to their hometowns. Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is spending this time at her home in Himachal, got talking about this current scenario in an interview. She elaborated on how this isolation has been treating her and the fact that it isn’t a big deal for her as she has taught herself to be on her own. However, she said that it is proving to be difficult for some people.

 

Kangana went on to add how there is a need to have a routine so that one doesn’t feel depressed or jailed. She also went on to say how our concern should be something else now and not how people are bored. She also said that there are people trying to get attention but we should focus on people who don’t have homes or people who can’t live individually because there are 10 people in one home.

 

She also got talking about how there are migrants who are trying to get their respective homes and she said how she isn’t here to say things to make people feel better because things aren’t going to be okay unless we make it happen and how this is a huge disaster. She added how love or politics or leaders cannot solve this problem, and while she said she is not trying to trivialize the issue, the sufferings are bound to happen and added how they are going to be worse if people don’t come together to face this challenge.

 

kangana lockdown

Kangana also spoke about the fact that this situation is not just about passing days and how, while we have great leadership that leads wisely and in the right direction, the microscopic virus that is our enemy, is not going to work in our favour and there needs to be consciousness at an individual level.

 

 She highlighted fact that there are anti-social elements who think opposing the government is cool and how they have been doing huge gatherings for the sake of it and ready to put their own lives at stake.

 

 Talking about the people who have been infected and have not much awareness on the subject, Kangana said that, right now, the enemy is such that we can only isolate them and there is no other thing we can do. There are people who try to humiliate them but proper care is the only thing one can do.

 

Well, we agree with Kangana and hope all the infected are met with proper treatment and care.

Ever since our government has announced a lockdown, our actors have been sharing videos on social media on how to survive this self-isolation. While some are posting their workout-at-home, others are also sharing what they are upto these days in these difficult times. 

But when Kangana Ranaut spoke about these critical times, she said it’s not funny anymore. She rightfully said that the doctors have now announced that this pandemic has become a state of community-transfer in our country and it can’t be joked around anymore. This is not a holiday-period anymore. Ranaut also said that celebrities need to be more alert, “Can we please understand where we stand and make people more alert rather than turning it into a holiday period.” 

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut, who is right now in her hometown Manali, urged people to practice self-isolation and social-distancing as that’s the only way to battle this virus. Kangana Ranaut always has some right information to share and we’re proud when celebrities try to do their bit in such times. The actress was last seen in Panga which yet again won her rave reviews.

Bollywood is one place where relationships and dynamics between celebs change sooner than you can imagine. While sometimes we witness ex’s becoming friends again, there are times when friendships don’t take long enough to turn into romantic relationships. With several rumours about your favourite stars’ doing rounds on the internet, it’s hard to know which one’s real. Nevertheless, leaving you updated with the hottest Bollywood scoops just like ever, we yet again have some big inside details about Salman Khan which you cannot miss. 

A real charmer, the actor has been ruling both, the box-office and our hearts for decades now. This time around, apparently it’s Indian model and Bollywood actress – Waluscha De Sousa who has managed to become one of Khan’s closest and favourite people. A source close to us informs that apparently Salman and Waluscha are B-town’s new BFFs now and have been even been spotted together several times. Interestingly, earlier the newbie had confirmed starring in Inshallah which also had to star Salman Khan before getting shelved. Confirming the growing friendship between the two, the source said, “Salman and Waluscha are very fond of each other and have been spending a lot of time together now a days. Seeing their friendship, it won’t be surprising if the romance happens between the two real soon. Dear ones are already happy to see their bond.” We also hear Waluscha is extremely excited with new friendship and can’t stop talking about how great Salman is to her friends.

Salman Khan BFF

With this new development, we wonder where does Salman’s alleged girlfriend Iulia Vantur stands. Looks like we have to wait to know the real truth.

In the wake of COVID – 19, the PM of our country has asked us to do the smallest thing and that is to stay in our homes to break the spread of the epidemic. The fatal virus is contagious and staying at home and practicing social-distancing is the only cure we have right now. With the country being in a lockdown phase till April 14, our celebrities have become more active on social media, to entertain their fans, keep in touch with them and share how they are killing their time.

After sharing a hilarious rap on Coronavirus, Varun Dhawan has yet again given us another reason to smile and make the social media a better place. He recently shared a throwback picture, where a young VD is seen with his mother Karuna Dhawan. While the picture is adorable, the caption is really sweet too. He said, ‘Ma and me (with a girl and kid emoji) We were always meant to be through holidays and quarantine Ma and me were always meant to be together #keepyourfamilysafe.’ 


Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan’s rap on Coronavirus left everyone in splits as he added some popular scenes from Hindi movies and clippings from our PM Narendra Modi’s speech. The actor is keeping his fans surely intrigued to his profile, as he shares raps, workout videos, midnight cravings and now even some throwback pics.

The Filipino audience shouldn’t feel deprived of watching films just because they don’t have the money for it, especially during this quarantine period,” said filmmaker Joselito Altarejos, who has just released two of his award-winning films online for free.

The links to 2014’s “Kasal” and 2016’s “TPO (Temporary Protection Order)” have already been up, Altarejos said, while those of 2017’s “Tale of the Lost Boys,” 2009’s “Ang Laro sa Buhay ni Juan,” 2010’s “Pink Halo-Halo,” 2014’s “Unfriend” and 2019’s “Jino to Mari” will be up in the next few days.

Altarejos said that through the multimedia production company 2076Kolektib, which he formed in 2019, he has been screening Filipino films online for free since January 2020.

“What this group wants is to take these films to different communities,” he declared. “This is our small gift to the Filipino audience. Soon, we hope to be able to share the films [that are carried by 2076Kolektib] with them, not just during the quarantine period, but for an unlimited period of time,” the director said.

While most of our Bollywood celebrities have become rather active on social media, from sharing their quarantine routines to urging fans to say indoors, and sharing fitness, cooking and self-care tips, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor too had an important point to make. Days after he suggested declaring an emergency in the country, keeping the current scenario of cops hitting people who step out the roads, Rishi has now come up with another interesting suggestion for the government during the lockdown. 

He has suggested that the government should open all the licensed liquor shops for some time in the evening, which have been shut down amid the 21-day lockdown imposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

He took to his social media and wrote, “Think Government should for some time in the evening open all licensed liquor stores. Don’t get me wrong. Man will be at home only what with all this depression, uncertainty around. Cops, doctors, civilians etc… need some release. Black mein to sell ho hi raha hai.”

 

He further added, “State governments desperately need the money from the excise. Frustration should not add up with depression. As it is pee to rahe hain legalize kar do no hypocrisy. My thoughts.”

 

Rishi kapoor

No wonder this tweet from the veteran actor was flooded with reactions from the netizens. Adding to which, filmmaker, Kunal Kohli too supported Rishi’s suggestion with a reply saying, “Or open in the mornings. 9am-2pm. The revenue is imp for the states & employees.” 

 

 

On the other hand, some sections have been trolling the senior actor saying, “Then consider this lockdown a rehab camp and live accordingly. Alcohol is not a basic necessity,” while another netizen urged Rishi to tweet responsibly by replying, “Please tweet responsibly and sensibly during #Covid_19 your immune system needs to be strong to deal with it. To heal faster. Kindly suggest people to eat healthy food refrain from alcohol for a while. Alcohol is not the solution for depression. Think different ppl look up to u.”

 

Well, by now we know that where there’s a tweet, there’s also a reaction. And in this case, plenty!
