HODA KOTB: "I’m Not Making Matt Lauer Money"
Hoda Kotb's got Matt Lauer's job, but not his salary.
The 53-year-old has officially replaced Lauer as the host of the Today show after he was fired for sexual misconduct in the workplace. Talking to People magazine, she says she and co-anchor Savannah Guthrie won't be making Matt's reported $20 million a year. “The answer is no — that’s not happening,” Hoda says. “For either of us.”
The women are reportedly each making $7 million. Which ain't chicken feed.
But for Hoda it's not about the money. She says, "I really have done jobs I liked for the job ... because I never wanted to be happy every other Friday on pay day. Like, I didn’t want that to be the happy day. I wanted to feel good throughout."
PETER CETERA: The Song Rocky Couldn't Afford
Peter Cetera says his movie hit was actually meant for a different movie. The Chicago founding member, whose "Glory of Love" came from the soundtrack of Karate Kid II, claims he wrote it for Rocky IV.
But the Rocky producers cried poverty. He tells Sarasota, Florida's Herald Tribune, "They didn’t want to pay what they were supposed to pay. So I just said, 'Well, fine, I’ll take the song.' And so a few weeks later, here comes Karate Kid looking for a song. I played them that one, changed a couple of the words and there we go."
CAMILA CABELLO: No Dis-Harmony
Despite a nasty split in late 2016, Camila Cabello is ready to make nice with her former Fifth Harmony partners -- who she refuses to smack down in public.
Camila tells Rolling Stone she plans to accentuate the positive because "a lot of my fans were, or are, fans of the group. I don't like to ruin the dream. They believed in something that's beautiful. I'm sure with One Direction, too, nobody really saw behind the scenes. You just see the dream."
She plans to further her own version of the dream next week, when she finally drops her debut album -- which was to be called The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving, but is now simply known as Camila.

Though today's service was held for family members, a separate memorial will be held tomorrow for Sheila's friends. Though Elton won't attend, he says he's chosen all the music.
The Rocket Man closes with thanking his mother for "bringing me into the world and for all that you have done for me."
Sheila Farebrother died December 4th at age 92.
LUKE BRYAN: PETA Not Happy With Kangaroo Gift
Luke Bryan's gift to his wife is stirring up some controversy.
Luke gave Caroline two baby kangaroos wrapped up in a gift bag on Christmas morning. But the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is not on board with the present.
The group issued the following statement: "Baby kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags. These joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam -- they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older. PETA is calling for an investigation into where these kangaroos came from, and stands ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary."
The kangaroos are meant to be part of a small collection of farm animals as part of Brett's Barn, which Caroline established to help bring cheer to sick kids.

Posted: Wednesday 08:34AM Jan. 03, 2018 PT
Even though Carrie Underwood says that November tumble may have altered her appearance, it may not be all that drastic.
Carrie said this week that the accident left her scarred and that she'll look different to fans the next time she's photographed, but a picture which surfaced on social media shows a different story.
Adrienne Gang, a former cast member of the reality show Below the Deck, posted a picture in mid-December -- about a month after the accident -- of her and Carrie at the gym, and it's raised questions about the severity of the accident.
Adrienne says Carrie looked "amazing" and that she had no clue her face had been severely injured. (People)
