Luke Perry has died after suffering a massive stroke at his home in California last week (ends01Mar19). The 52-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 star passed away on Monday morning (04Mar19) at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank. He suffered the stroke at his Sherman Oaks home last Wednesday, prompting an outpouring of prayers and support from famous friends and castmates past and present. Perry began his acting career in the early 1980s and became a TV idol and pin-up as Dylan McKay on 90210 from 1990 to 2000. He has been enjoying a career resurgence of late, playing Fred Andrews on TV drama Riverdale. The actor also filmed a role in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Charles Manson movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Perry's credits also include Another World, Oz, Jeremiah and Body of Proof. His stroke came hours after it was revealed his former 90210 castmates had regrouped for a new series. Luke was not expected to be a regular on the spin-off, due to his commitments to Riverdale. News of his death came shortly after his former 90210 love interest Shannen Doherty urged fans to remain positive for Perry. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight at Sunday’s Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation's Compassion Project Gala, she revealed she had been in contact with the star. "I can't talk about it here 'cause I will literally start crying but I love him and he knows I love him," an emotional Shannen told the news outlet. "I'm in contact. It's Luke, and he's my Dylan. Everybody just keep positive wonderful thoughts, that's all I'm gonna say."

Queen's 1975 hit Bohemian Rhapsody has become the first pre-1990s music video to reach one billion plays on YouTube. The six-minute long promo, which is often hailed as a pioneering example of the music video, hit the milestone over the weekend. YouTube bosses claim it is the first song released before the 1990s to make the milestone. To celebrate, the band is releasing a newly remastered high definition version of the clip on their YouTube channel on Monday and are also launching a project titled You Are the Champions, allowing fans the opportunity to take part in three new user-generated videos. "We are honoured that Bohemian Rhapsody has just hit one billion views on YouTube," bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor said in a statement posted on their website. Inviting fans to take part in their new project, they added: "We want to thank you all and celebrate with our amazing fans all around the world by creating three new music videos to our songs, all featuring you! Whether you are a musician, singer, dancer, visual artist or you just want to have some fun. Go to www.youarethechampions.com to find out more and we'll see you on the road somewhere." Their initiative allows singers and instrumentalists to submit their take on Bohemian Rhapsody, dancers can work on a video for Don't Stop Me Now, and visual artists have been asked to design any word or phrase from the lyrics to A Kind of Magic. Queen's YouTube channel will feature the finished fan videos later this year. The band's already immense popularity received a boost following the success of their biopic, also titled Bohemian Rhapsody, which debuted last October, made more than $900 million (£720 million) at the box office and won four Oscars, including a Best Actor prize for Rami Malek's portrayal of frontman Freddie Mercury.
Kylie Jenner has denied rumors she's pregnant with her second child. The 21-year-old reality star, whose daughter Stormi turns one next month (Feb19), sparked speculation she could be expecting another baby with boyfriend Travis Scott when she tweeted about an "exciting project" she has in the works. "I have something really exciting i get to share soon with you guys! I’ve been cooking this up for awhile i can’t wait to share my new project alreadyyy," she wrote. One fan was quick to jump to conclusions and tweeted Kylie, "Are you pregnant again?" But the Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty shut down the question, and replied "Noooo lol (laugh out loud)." Despite Kylie's giggling response to the question, she admitted in a Snapchat Q&A session last October (18) that she is already thinking about further expanding her family. "Am I going to have another baby?" she mused. "I want another baby but, 'When?' is the question and I'm definitely not ready right this second. I don't know when I will be, but yeah, when I do, I would love to share more of that with you guys." Kylie famously kept her entire pregnancy a secret the first time around, and only confirmed the speculation when she announced Stormi's birth and shared pictures and video footage of her when she was expecting. A source close to the reality star previously said that while Kylie and Travis are keen to have another baby, the couple is planning to wait until the end of the rapper's Astroworld Tour in March before they start trying. "Kylie and Travis are going to wait until he's finished his tour before trying for another baby," the source told Entertainment Tonight. "They want to have another child soon so it's close in age to Stormi, but they do not want to do this while he's busy on the road."
