RUBY ROSE - MOST DANGEROUS CELEBRITY

UNDATED (AP) — If you’re clicking on something linked to Ruby Rose, you could be messing with your digital life. The cybersecurity company McAfee has named the actress the most dangerous celebrity on the internet. What that means is that no other celebrity is more likely to land internet searchers on sites that carry computer viruses or malware. Rose is a model and is a MTV VJ. You can also see her in “Orange Is The New Black” and she was named to play Batwoman on an upcoming TV series. The second most dangerous celebrity is Kristin Cavallari, followed by actress Marion Cotillard, the original “Wonder Woman,” Lynda Carter — and actress Rose Byrne.

Other celebrities making the list include Kourtney Kardashian, actress Amber Heard and TV host Kelly Ripa. The top musician on the list of digitally dangerous celebrities is Adele, who is number 21.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP - MEDIA

NEW YORK (AP) — A couple of testy moments marked an event yesterday when President Donald Trump took questions from reporters. It happened in the Rose Garden, where Trump wanted to focus on trade. ABC’s Cecilia Vega and CNN’s Kaitlan Collins wanted Trump to answer questions about his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. When Collins tried to steer Trump away from going on about the trade issue, Trump scolded the reporter, saying “Don’t do that. That’s not nice.” Later, Collins squeezed in a question about allegations that Kavanaugh was less than forthcoming about his use of alcohol during his Senate confirmation hearing.

CARDI B - SUMMONS

NEW YORK (AP) — Usually the two don’t go together. But when Cardi B left a New York City police station yesterday, she emerged with both a smile — and a summons. She was charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault. This all stems from a dustup at a New York strip club. Police say Cardi B and her crew were at the club around 3 a.m. Saturday when she got into a verbal battle with a woman who was serving as a bartender. Her lawyer says there’s no evidence the rapper hurt anyone during the incident.

It’s just the latest beef involving the rapper. A few weeks ago, she and rap rival Nicki Minaj got into it at a New York Fashion Week party. That scrap left Cardi B with a mark on her head.

ED SHEERAN’S PUB VISIT

BRANFORD, Conn. (AP) — The owner of a pub in Branford, Connecticut, says the place doesn’t usually draw celebrity clientele. That changed over the weekend when Ed Sheeran poked his head in. The New Haven Register says Sheeran and his finance hung out at Tommy Sullivan’s Cafe in Branford. While waiting for a wedding party to arrive, Sheeran knocked down a beer — and took photos with the owner and two bartenders. Sullivan says Sheeran is the first famous person to visit the pub — and he will post the photo on the wall.

GARRISON KEILLOR APPEARANCE CANCELED

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — An appearance by Garrison Keillor at a Vermont book festival has been canceled after a public outcry. Organizers of the Burlington Book Festival faced criticism for inviting the 76-year-old public radio personality, who has been accused of sexual harassment. Last year Minnesota Public Radio severed ties with the former “Prairie Home Companion” host over the accusations, which Keillor denies. The book festival’s founding director, Rick Kisonak, wrote in an email that “the unexpected reaction on social media made it apparent some people viewed his booking as our condoning of sexual harassment.” He says “nothing could be further from the truth.”

OBIT-THE REAL PEGGY SUE

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — The Texas woman who inspired the 1958 Buddy Holly song “Peggy Sue” has died at a Lubbock hospital. Peggy Sue Gerron Rackham of Lubbock died yesterday at University Medical Center. She was 78. UMC spokesman Eric Finley says the family gave him permission to confirm the death, but asked that no additional information be released. Peggy Sue Gerron in 2008 released her autobiography “Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue?: A Memoir by Buddy Holly’s Peggy Sue” to mark the 50th anniversary of the song. Gerron at the time said she and Holly were good friends. She married a member of his band, The Crickets. The couple later divorced.

Holly died in a 1959 plane crash in Iowa that also killed Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson.
