The Cricket’s Daily 3: Farewell to Lauren Bacall
Here's what's happening today in pop culture:
• Lauren Bacall, the husky-voiced siren who smoldered onscreen with Humphrey Bogart and married him in real life, has died at the age of 89. (And, as Slate's Miriam Krule pointed out, Bacall was the last icon name-checked in Madonna's song "Vogue" to leave us.) [AP, Slate]
• Tributes keep pouring in for comedian Robin Williams, who was found dead from suicide Monday: Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers both paid tribute on their late-night shows Tuesday; and 99-year-old screen legend Norman Lloyd, who played Williams' nemesis in "Dead Poets Society," praised his co-stars talent. [Entertainment Weekly, The Hollywood Reporter]
• Author George R.R. Martin says some readers have figured out the ending he has planned for his "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series — the basis for "Game of Thrones" — but he won't say which ones. [Vanity Fair]
