From a big comeback story to historic honors for audio recordings, here's your top entertainment headlines.
If making a comeback against all odds were a person, it would be actor Jeremy Renner. After healing up from his near-fatal snow plow accident, Renner made his first big public appearance at the premiere of his Rennervations series at the Westwood Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles.
The Hawkeye actor was spotted with a cane in tow before transitioning to a motorized scooter as he moved to interview with various publications. He told Variety that despite his injuries, he was committed to ensuring that his Disney+ reality show was released as scheduled.
"I look a little beat up right now, but I promise you this show is what's propelling me to get better and makes me want to get better everyday. I set out a goal to be walking this carpet, and here I am enjoying it," he said.
Renner's reality show focuses on renovating used cars for underserved communities across the globe.
The Royal drama continues ahead of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla's coronation ceremony. Buckingham Palace confirmed that Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, will not be in attendance, and that her husband Prince Harry will attend the three-day event alone, which is slated to take place on May 6. The last time the entire family convened was in September for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
While Markle plans to stay in California with her two young children, the Palace revealed in March that an invitation had been extended to the couple after reports surfaced in the previous month that they had not been invited.
Music Is Forever
The National Recording Registry just inducted three massively successful projects to be forever etched into American history. Madonna's Like A Virgin, Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You, and the original Super Mario Bros. video game piece, Ground Theme, have all been inducted into the national audio canon. Mario-maker Nintendo made history with its entry as the only video game song to ever be inducted.
Each year, the Library of Congress makes a selection of audio recordings to be archived after hundreds of options are submitted by the public. In total, 25 pieces were chosen this year, including Queen Latifah's All Hail the Queen. She became the first woman rapper to have her music archived at the Library of Congress.
