In October of last year the partnership between Jimmy Miller and Eric Gold— Jim Carrey managers for many years, came to an end.

Now according to the website “The Wrap” Jim Carrey has signed with Rick Yorn’s LBI Entertainment and it’s still represented by WME.

“Yorn represents an impressive list of movie stars, including Jonah Hill, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and DiCaprio. The strength of his client list stands out in particular because it is such a small firm. To remedy that, Yorn has hired Thor Bradwell and Chris Donnelly from WME, bringing on rising stars like Diana Agron, as well as Martin Scorsese. He also hired former independent agent Ilene Feldman.”

Elton John, Queen with Adam Lambert Rule at iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas

Elton John may not have a current hit on the radio, but he earned the most cheers at the iHeartRadio music festival.

John was one of top performers Friday night at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Katy Perry, Chris Brown and Robin Thicke and others also hit the stage.

But John was the crowd’s favourite — he earned a standing ovation after his third song.

Adam Lambert was equally as enduring when he performed with Queen. Pop-rock trio fun. also sang with iconic rock band.

Other performers during the five-hour concert included Keith Urban, Muse and J. Cole — acts who also impressed the crowd.

Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney and Bruno Mars will close the 2-day iHeartRadio festival Saturday, but here’s a breakdown of day one:

HE STOLE THE NIGHT

From the moment Elton John went from playing the piano while sitting to sitting on top of the piano to singing, he captured the entire audience at the MGM Garden Arena.

The 66-year-old was fiery on his red piano, belting tunes like “Tiny Dancer” and “Bennie and the Jets.”

“Good evening, Vegas!” he yelled, sporting a dark glittery blazer.

John, who recently had surgery to remove his appendix, didn’t show any signs of slowing down during his five-song set. He was vocally loud and clear, and he even made a new song, “Home Again,” feel classic. (John will release a new album, “The Diving Board,” on Tuesday).

Fittingly, the icon closed with “I’m Still Standing.” Read more>>
