Nickelback is one of the most successful rock bands on the planet. They're also arguably the most hated, although The Chainsmokers are giving them a run for their money. To this end, Chad Kroeger and his bandmates are offering the "Closer" duo advice on how to deal with critics. "Don't Google yourself," Kroeger posited, while guitarist Ryan Peake told People, "Just play for fans and just pay attention to that, because if you pay attention to people who don’t like your band, it’s not really why you’re there."

 

Zoe Kravitz has opened up about living with her Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman back when the Oscar-winning actress was engaged to her dad Lenny Kravitz in the early 2000s. "I hadn’t seen her in a long time before Big Little Lies, but there was a point where we were all kind of living together," she tells The Edit. "I was about 13, and she would take me to see movies; she was so nice to me.” Zoe added with a laugh, "I think she forgot that no one knew that." Kidman shocked fans earlier this year when she revealed for the first time that she'd been engaged to Lenny. "Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family!" Kidman told The Edit. I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”

The Backstreet Boys recently announced that they were expanding their Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency to add dates in November, January and February. And the group likely won’t stop there – turns out they’re really loving the “convenience” of being based in one place. Asked if they’d add more than the 15 dates announced, Backstreet’s Kevin Richardson said, “I think so. Just to not have to hop on a bus or a plane or unpack and pack in a new hotel room every night or whatever, to not have to travel and be able to stay in one place is very convenient for us.” Kevin adds that the Vegas schedule allows the veteran boy band to “be creative and get in the studio, and it allows us to go around and play other shows, because we’re gearing up for...a new single and a new album coming up.” He adds, “We’re planning on going on a world tour next year as well, we’re going to be doing both. We’re having a great time, and the reaction’s been great, so things are good.” Tickets for the newly added dates go on sale today.

 

 

It turns out the name Dimitri wasn't actually Ashton Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis' first choice to name their now 7-month-old son. "We were set on Walt, like Walt Disney. No Walter, just Walt, but then it changed last minute,” Kutcher explained in a recent radio interview. “We were driving in the car and Mila turns to me and she’s like, ‘I don’t think that our son's name is Walt. I think it’s Dimitri, and also I think that Donald Trump is going to be the next president.’" He continued, "I had missed the whole name thing, because I was like, ’What are you talking about? Trump is not going to be president.’ Then, like, two days later I remembered that she said it, and I was like, ‘I think you’re right about the name.’"
