Macklemore has issued an apology for a costume he wore at a concert in Seattle that he acknowledged could be ascribed to a Jewish caricature and said it was not his intention to mock the Jewish people. The Grammy-winning rapper wore an oversized nose, bowl-cut wig and a long beard while performing his song "Thrift Shop." Macklemore posted a statement saying "I respect all cultures and all people, I would never intentionally put down anybody for the fabric that makes them who they are." Paul McCartney has been forced to postpone two shows in Tokyo. The former Beatle canceled part of his Asia tour due to an undisclosed illness. A statement on the singer's website said that doctors have ordered him to rest and that the shows will eventually be rescheduled. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore hit the red carpet in Berlin for the world premiere of their latest film "Blended." The movie marks the duo's third collaboration together - this time they play single parents who initially hate each other, but then fall in love while on vacation at the same resort. The movie opens this weekend. Kim Kardashian stepped out onto the streets of Paris with baby North on Tuesday (May 20), just days before she will celebrate her marriage to Kanye West. Kardashian shopped in designer store Givenchy with her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The couple will reportedly travel to Florence for a celebration where they have rented a 16th century fort.
