Dr. Drew canceled by HLN soon after discussing Hillary Clinton’s health

“Dr. Drew On Call,” a show on the HLN channel hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, has been canceled.

The last episode of the prime-time show that featured Pinsky and aired on CNN’s sister channel will air on Sept. 22.  The show has been on the air since 2011, and, according to CNN, it is being dropped as the channel’s lineup is being revamped.

However, speculation on social media outlets about the reason Pinsky’s show was canceled has swirled around comments Pinsky made on a radio show on Aug. 17 in which he questioned the health of Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton.

Pinsky comments on KABC’s “McIntyre in the Morning” radio show questioned whether Clinton is suffering from serious medical issues.

“What is going on with her health care? It’s bizarre. I got to tell you. Maybe they have reasons, but at a distance, it looks bizarre. There ought to be some sort of standard for people that are going to lead the country or are going to making these important decisions. Again, Hillary may be fine with all of this. I mean, it’s dangerous and it’s concerning, but you can see—and by the way, there were two other things that gravely concerned us. When she hit her head, she had to wear these prism glasses when she came out.

“…. That is brain damage, and it’s affecting her balance. Now clearly, it hasn’t affected her cognition, but tell us a little more about that. That’s profound. And then number two, when they screened her for heart disease, again, they did an old-fashioned screen. It just seems like she’s getting care from somebody that she met in Arkansas when she was a kid, and you’ve got to wonder. You’ve got to wonder. It’s not so much that her health is a grave concern. It’s that the care she’s getting could make it a concern.”

According to a Washington Post story, Pinsky based his comments on a letter released by Clinton’s internist, Lisa Bardack, who has been Clinton’s physician for some 15 years. The letter described Clinton as suffering from two ongoing medical conditions – hypothyroidism and seasonal pollen allergies. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormones, hormones that regulate the body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development and bone maintenance. 

It was the second time this year that Pinsky had commented on Clinton’s health. He apologized in January for saying on air that Clinton’s late return to the stage in a debate against Democratic rival Bernie Sanders was due to a “flare-up of a brain injury.”

Both Pinsky and CNN said the show was ended by mutual agreement. Pinsky is expected to remain with the network as an occasional commentator.

Britney Spears hitches a ride for Corden's Carpool Karaoke

Oops! James Corden did it again, sharing his Carpool Karaoke commute with Britney Spears on Thursday's edition of "The Late Late Show."

As they drove through LA byways with the CBS host at the wheel, they doubled up for Spears' hit songs including "Womanizer," ''Make Me," ''Toxic" and "Baby One More Time" (the latter performed in matching schoolgirl garb).

And, of course, there was one more signature Spears tune.

"You know your song, 'Oops! ... I Did It Again'?" asked Corden, leading up to it. "What's that about? What's it REALLY about?"

"I don't know," Spears demurely replied innocently. "I think it's just a song."

"Because every time I order at Domino's," said Corden, "I think, 'Oops! I did it again!'"

Between their front-seat vocalizing during the 10-minute segment, the carpool couple engaged in chitchat.

Spears reminded Corden she has two kids, ages 9 and 10.

"I want more," she declared.

"How many more?"

"Like, three. But I have to find the right guy first, and then —"

"— tell him that he's about to become the father of three children," Corden cut in with a grin before inquiring what sort of man she's looking for.

"I might not ever go to men again, I think, ever do the whole men thing anymore, or get married," she said. "I'm just done with men."

"You're saying you don't want to be with anyone, ever, the rest of your life?" Corden asked with surprise.

"I might French kiss someone," Spears hedged.

"Of COURSE! Yes!"

Corden asked Spears if her kids had seen her Las Vegas show.

"What it's like for them if you're wearing a racy outfit?" he posed. "I saw my mum in her underwear once when I was like 11. I can't shake the image from my brain."

Reflecting on her own childhood, Spears confided that she once got paddled in first grade, which left her "Traumatized! Traumatized!"

"I've never been spanked — properly, for either pain or pleasure," Corden said.

Just as well, said Spears. That brand of bondage is passe.

"Men get off on being TICKLED for a very long time," Spears told him.

But Corden wasn't buying it.

"I don't know what my wife would do if I went home and went, 'Sweet baby James needs a little bit of a tickling.'"

Sarajevo Chamber Music Festival to organize house concerts

Organizers of the sixth annual Sarajevo Chamber Music Festival have invited music lovers to open their homes for concerts.

The aim is to bring classical music to people who cannot visit concert halls or would rather enjoy it in an intimate setting among friends.

"If you own a piano, you can host a concert by a piano trio or quintet. If you have a spacious backyard you can host a concert by an accordion orchestra and if you live in a tiny flat you can host a soloist concert," the organizers announced on their website.

Sarajevans who would like to participate will need to hurry — the nine-day festival opens Friday.

The festival was launched in 2011 by the Sarajevo Academy of Music and the U.S.-based Manhattan String Quartet.
