Trump explained the idea to reporters outside the White House, Saturday: “We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot — New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts Connecticut.

“We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short-term, two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and parts Connecticut,” he added.

Saturday afternoon he tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE developing “hot spots”, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.”

Many states are coming down hard on New Yorkers looking for an escape. Nearby, the National Guard, in Rhode Island, is pulling over any New York plates and enforcing a two-week quarantine travelers who plan to stay in the state. The National Guard is also going door-to-door to enforce the quarantine.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hopes New Yorkers will not have to avoid any quarantine, telling reporters, “I don’t know how that could be legally enforceable. … Not even understanding what it is, I don’t like the sound it.”

YouTube Music App Can Now Displays Lyrics on iOS and Android

YouTube Music now displays lyrics to listeners on the iOS and Android apps.

Users can tap the “i” button while a song is playing to see the lyrics. YouTube Music finally joins the ranks of Apple Music and Spotify, showcasing lyrics to listeners. The only downside – all lyrics are static, you have to scroll through manually.

While YouTube Music lyrics are available for some songs, not all songs have the option.

LyricFind is still the main partner for powering YouTube Music’s lyrics – despite being caught stealing lyrics from Genius. That revelation ended up with Genius suing Google over the stolen lyrics.
Apple made its Genius partnership official last year – complete with original content.

Recent albums like Childish Gambino’s 3.15.20 and Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony are missing lyrics. YouTube says they receive lyrics daily from LyricFind, but there’s no timeframe for when a song will get its lyrics.

This new feature is only available in the YouTube Music mobile app – not the web player.

Sorry, desktop listeners. YouTube says the feature will come to the web player “soon.” YouTube seems to be prioritizing those who use the mobile app. Just recently, YouTube Music finally got a long-awaited feature – the ability to . Many Google Play Music users have been hesitant to switch, thanks to YouTube Music’s lack of features.

YouTube Music supports FLAC, M4A, MP3, OGG, and WMA files and metadata. One neat feature, YouTube Music removes duplicates from your library automatically. Despite the ability to upload files to YouTube Music, there is still no ability to migrate Play Music libraries easily.

GPM users are being told to “stay tuned” for a way to transfer music between the two seamlessly. The music upload feature also seems to be a selective rollout – some accounts have it, and some don’t.

Cardi B Calls For "Tiger King" Joe Exotic’s Freedom

It seems like everyone has been tuning into Netflix’s Tiger King this week. Viewers have been hashing out their thoughts surrounding the incarcerated Joe Exotic ever since Netflix debuted the docuseries recently. Joe Exotic’s found some pretty famous supporters, as well, including Cardi B.

Seeing as how she’s been practicing social distancing, Cardi B has clearly had some time to dive into Netflix. Though she admitted on Thursday that she was lost in the second episode because she was having , she clearly caught up on all the details. “Carol you think you slick bitch,” she wrote on Twitter. She later retweeted a fan meme that read, “Carole Baskins fed her husband to the tigers.” That’s been a running theory throughout the series that Carole has denied. 

Exotic is currently locked up for allegedly trying to set up the murder Carole Baskin, who serves as the onscreen antagonist in the series. However, Cardi pledged to free the man. She even went as far as vowing to launch a GoFundMe in his honor. “Bout to start a gundme account for Joe .He shall be free,” she wrote. Chances are she’s joking, though, but she clearly got invested in the series. 

Joe Exotic has filed a $94M lawsuit against the federal government claiming that they’ve discriminated against and conspired against him to have him locked up. 

Steph Curry Reportedly Not Concerned With Basketball Right Now

Steph Curry has been doing his best to keep busy during the NBA’s Coronavirus hiatus. In fact, earlier this week, Curry did a Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci who has been one the leading experts in regard to this pandemic. Just like everyone else, Curry has been at home and is looking to stay isolated from the outside world as we try to curb the spread this virus, once and for all.

Many NBA players have been struggling during the pandemic due to the fact that they don’t have workout equipment at home. Curry hasn’t exactly had to worry about this as his home is well-equipped. According to his trainer Brandon Payne, basketball hasn’t really been on Curry’s mind anyway. In fact, he’s more worried about Cam Newton leaving the Panthers.

“To be honest with you, we’ve talked more about the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback situation than we’ve talked about anything else,” Payne said according to Tom Haberstroh NBC Sports. “We talked a little bit about workouts and what he can do, but it’s not a whole lot right now. Stephen is fortunate because he’s got a larger home with a workout area with some pretty nice equipment in it. He’ll be able to maintain things physically pretty well because he’s got the tools to do so. Some the other guys I’ve been talking to? They’re a little bit more challenged.”

Hopefully, we can see Curry back on the court, sooner than later. He was just starting to get back with the Warriors when this pandemic hit and now, we have been deprived his infamous shot.

Unfortunately for Wendy Williams, that means that her forthcoming surgery on her breasts has been put on hold. Appearing on The Dr. Oz Show, Wendy Williams detailed how Coronavirus has been affecting her on a personal level, as well as the rest Hollywood. She did reiterate that she’s entirely supportive the health system putting an emphasis about the emergency matters with Coronavirus, she explained that she might have to deal with some “saggy boobs” for the next little while.

“It’s just that, as a surgery girl, when you save your money and you’ve been planning for years, and then you have your appointment and all a sudden the corona pops up, and I got to deal with these saggy boobs,” she said. 

I presume that dealing with saggy boobs for a few more months might be easier than dealing with saggy breasts but what do I know?

"The Office’s" Final Season Almost Introduced A Surprising Twist

The Office is one the most popular sitcoms all-time and is beloved by fans all over the world. Two the most popular characters on the show were Jim and Pam. These characters started out as good friends and as the seasons progressed, they fell in love and got married. If you’ve seen the show, then you know the ninth and final season was pretty turbulent for these characters. Jim accepted a job in Philadelphia which left him apart from Pam. While their relationship was strained, they eventually pulled through and stayed together.

In a new book by Andy Greene called The Office: The Untold Story the Greatest Sitcom the 2000s, the show’s writers and actors talk about how they actually wanted to have Jim and Pam split up while eventually getting back together in the final episode. As Jim actor John Krasinski noted, it could have made for an interesting dynamic.

"The Office's" Final Season Almost Introduced A Surprising Twist

“My whole pitch to Greg Daniels] was that we’ve done so much with Jim and Pam, and now, after marriage and kids, there was a bit a lull there,” Krasinki said to Greene. “For me it was, ‘Can you have this perfect relationship go through a split and keep it the same?’ which course you can’t. And I said to Greg, ‘It would be really interesting to see how that split will affect two people that you know so well.’”

Had this storyline taken place, numerous fans would have been in shambles. Luckily for the hearts many, the show finished on a happy note for all the characters, specifically Jim and Pam.

Last season proved to be especially turbulent for the star wide receiver as numerous f the field issues caught up to him. Now, he is without a team and awaiting a decision from the league in regards to a recent investigation. In the midst all this, Brown has been working out at home and enjoying the quarantine.

“They need to let you play in the NFL, man. They need to stop worrying about what you do on the outside,” Mayweather said. “You can get arrested 40 times, 50 times. Do that got something to do with you catching the ball or what you doing on the field?”

Mayweather then spoke about how Tom Brady wants to play with Brown which should be reason enough for teams to sign him. “You’re supposed to be in the NFL. Tom Brady is one the best quarterbacks all time. He’s not requesting you for no reason.”

It remains to be seen what will happen with Brown although if it were up to Mayweather, he would have been back on the field by now.

Prince’s Family Claims His Estate Has Not Paid Them A Cent

Members Prince’s family have accused the late artist’s estate failing to pay them a cent, and have filed a petition for compensation. When Prince tragically passed away in 2016, he left all his assets to his six siblings, Tyka Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson, John R. Nelson, Omarr Baker, and Alfred Jackson. However, his half-sisters, Sharon and Norrine, and his half-brother, John, are claiming that they have yet to see a penny  their late brother’s fortune. They have accused his estate, which is run by Comerica Bank,  mismanaging Prince’s money and failing to inform them about new deals. As a result, Sharon, Norrine, and John have filed a petition for compensation, asking the court to approve “payment for services and efforts provided to the Estate.”

According to court documents, the three siblings feel that they have contributed “considerable time and investment in business matters related to the Estate.” However, “unlike others, who have performed services for the Prince Estate,” Sharon, Norrine, and John have “not received any financial sums for numerous and repeated services they have contributed to the Estate.” The three siblings, who have had issues with the estate on numerous occasions in the past, have requested to be paid several times, but have been denied. “As this Court is aware, the Estate has now been on-going for over three years,” the court papers read. “In this time, millions have been paid to the Personal Representatives, their accountants, attorneys, and legal advisors.”

The heirs have allegedly had to rely “solely on their pension, social security, personal savings and loans from friends to cover the costs needed to support the Prince Estate despite the millions paid to advisors, attorneys and others approved by the Court.” This has resulted in significant financial instability, according to the three siblings. They are pleading with the court to order Comerica to work out a settlement, but a judge still has yet to rule. 

Carmelo Anthony Recounts How LeBron James Saved His Life

Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade have had their fair share fun alongside LeBron James although some situations have proven to be a lot direr than others. Recently, Wade and Melo were on Instagram live where they reflected on their favorite Kobe Bryant stories while also giving some insight on other great stories. One those tales involved the Banana Boat crew and one their signature vacations.

In the clip below, Anthony recounts the time LeBron had to save his life. Melo describes wanting to go snorkeling and eventually, things went left. Next thing he knew, LeBron was jumping f the boat and rushing into the water to drag him back with one arm.

“It was my fault though, I was still trying to see the last bit the barracuda, snorkeling and all that,” Anthony said. “I look up, the current is taking me to the middle the ocean, like opposite from the boat … It was windy, all type shit was going on through my head, I’ll be honest with you. Then I look up at the boat and I see ‘Bron jump f the boat like he is MacGyver. … He jumped f the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm.”

Thankfully, LeBron was there to save the day. This will certainly go down as a legendary tale that further adds to LeBron’s mystique. Hopefully, we get more such stories throughout the rest the quarantine period.
