Slimefest 2016: Tickets + Info

Oooh, bring it, Sydney!

Nickelodeon’s SLIMEFEST completely lived up to its name today, turning thousands of Melbourne kids GREEN at Margaret Court Arena.

Hosted by Delta Goodrem, the epic event featured tonnes of slime, stunts and performances by international headliner Omi, Havana Brown, G.R.L., In Stereo, Mashd B Kutcher and Megan Nicole.

Delta was in charge of the slime and didn’t disappoint, unleashing slime mayhem on the excited Melbourne crowd. Go, Delts!

“It was amazing to experience the buzz and excitement at SLIMEFEST today. The kids couldn’t wait to get slimed and of course, neither could I! It was truly a moment I’ll never forget,” said Delta.

Here's the proof!

Delta opened the show with her brand new smash hit River before heading into a Wings/Dear Life mash-up, which saw slime fly out of her piano and into the crowd – and that was only the start! Australia’s hottest export Havana Brown wowed the crowds with a debut performance of her brand new single Like Lightning, before pumping out her top hits, We Run the Night, Big Banana, You’ll Be Mine and Warrior. Boy band and teen heartthrobs In Stereo sent their fans crazy with She’s Rock and Roll, Make Your Daddy Like Me and Honest. They finished their set by throwing their arms in the air and unleashing a shower of slime rain onto the ecstatic crowd.

Newly reformed G.R.L., got the kids up and dancing to their global hits, Wild, Wild Love, Don’t Talk About Love, Rewind and Ugly Heart in their first arena performance since announcing their comeback this year. Jamaican pop sensation Omi, kept the crowd bopping with his global smash hits Hula Hoop, Drop In The Ocean and Cheerleader. The final SLIMEFEST performance was by Brisbane based DJs Mashd N Kutcher, who “mashed” up favourite Nickelodeon theme songs to create the ultimate Nickelodeon dance tune!

SLIMEFEST wouldn’t be complete without a final EPIC sliming, Nickelodeon style! Delta, along with all the SLIMEFEST performers, returned back on-stage to take on SLIMEFEST’s official dance – the MAYHEM MOVE, before being covered head to toe in the glorious green goo.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie: Last Interview: VIDEO

'Sunday Night' just screened the last interview of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Here is that story.

And here is that interview in full, as it appeared on the US 'Today' show:

Luna Park: Shopkins and Grossery Gang Village

The school holidays are here!

Yes, we know... you suddenly become an event planner, calendar wrangler, kiddies entertainer, time manager extraordinaire.

You KNOW Luna Park is a no brainer for non stop kiddie fun (unlimited rides, anyone? YES! For kids AND adults) and now the iconic Sydney historical theme park is introducing the BIGGEST Shopkins and Grossery Gang attraction with an entire Shopkins and Grossery Gang Village! YES!

Featuring a Shopkins Swapkins Station allowing children to swap their Shopkins with fellow fans (so, it's Shopkins aficionado heaven) and a Shopkins and Grossery Gang Museum and Treasure Hunt, there will be daily meet and greets with Kooky Cookie throughout Luna Park, and much more.

Featuring every Shopkins and Grossery Gang character ever created, a selection of one of kind Shopkins showbags and merchandise and an exciting opportunity for guests to have their very own Shopkin design made into a real life Shopkin by entering the Design your Own Shopkin competition, the Shopkins and Grossery Gang activities are bound to set little hearts racing and provide endless hours of entertainment these school holidays.

In addition to Luna Park Sydney’s traditional rides, including the recently reinstated Tango Train with a modern twist, LED light show and state of the art technology for a faster white knuckle ride, a brand new experience will be making its debut at the park only for the holiday period – The Avenger. For the older and braver crowd, the ride spins on three axes. Think extreme adrenaline and extreme fun for those brave enough to strap in.

Luna Park Marketing Manager, Brendan Biddell said, “We’re stepping it up a notch these school holidays and offering something for the entire family – the little ones can let loose in the Shopkins and Grossery Gang Village, while the bigger kids and adults can enjoy all the thrills of Luna Park’s rides, venues, attractions and entertainment.”

“Having the Shopkins and Grossery Gang Village is something we are really excited about, it’s a national first and caters to the school holiday crowd - an audience that is constantly on the look out for some extra entertainment options over the holidays.”

As the weather warms up, Luna Park will not only be THE perfect Sydney day out for young and older folks (the ferries wheel! Coney Island! The dodgem cars! The Hair Raiser drop tower! That million dollar view!), you should stay tuned for the fun pop up exhibits like this, themed events like Halloween (Halloscream), and much more.

Brad Pitt Under Investigation For Child Abuse

Breaking news in the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt break up:

This, from TMZ.

Says the report:

Brad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that's what triggered the divorce ... TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We're told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.
Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We're told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.
We're also told the LAPD has the case ... which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse ... just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.
Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.
A source close to Brad tells TMZ, "He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children," adding, "It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light."

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan pledge $4 billion to fight disease

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his pediatrician wife Priscilla Chan have today pledged $4 billion to fight all disease, through the couple's philanthropic group.

Last year, they said they would give 99 per cent of their Facebook shares to charitable causes - and today, well... they started to put their money where their mouth is.

Called the 'Chan Zuckerberg Initiative', the limited liability corporation means Zuckerberg and Chan will put their Facebook shares over the next decade toward preventing, curing or managing all diseases by the end of the century.

See a clip here:

The goal is to "work together to cure, prevent or manage all disease within our children's lifetime," Dr. Chan said during the event in San Francisco for the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Dr. Chan spoke through tears as she recalled telling parents their child had an incurable disease or could not be revived. These experiences, she said, made her even more determined to work with scientists and engineers to build new tools that can save lives by the end of the century.

Zuckerberg, who took the stage after his wife's speech, said he and Chan want to "make a better future for our children."

How VERY cool is that?
