The Man Who Called 911 to Report Prince’s Death Has Been Keeping His Mouth Shut

Andrew Kornfeld, the man who called 911 to report Prince being found unconscious in an elevator, is currently under investigation “for the unauthorized practice of medicine,” but you wouldn’t know that from asking him—as he hasn’t said a word to reporters since the incident occurred.


Writes TMZ:

Andrew’s dad, rehab specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld, got the call from Prince’s rep the day before the singer died, pleading with him to come to Minnesota to save Prince from a fatal OD. The doctor couldn’t make it but sent his son, who was in the house when Prince was discovered in the elevator.

It’s not surprising that Kornfeld would keep his mouth shut during an investigation (I’m sure he has lawyers telling him to zip it), but the skill with which he ignores TMZ’s cameras in a video posted Friday is impressive...and almost hypnotic. Just watch him tune them out as his massive shorts catch the wind.


Here’s Tom Hiddleston explaining that ~viral~ video of him dancing with Taylor Swift at the Met Gala.

“I love dancing, who doesn’t?” Hiddleston told the Press Association in a recent interview. “It’s a weird one (that it went viral). I haven’t actually danced for a long time, but I happened to be dancing at the Met Gala, because it was a party. I was on a table with Taylor Swift and The Weeknd was playing and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance,’” he continued. “She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd!’ so we got up and danced.”


Will someone explain what “dancing for The Weeknd” means?
