Japanese Billionaire Buys Every Seat on SpaceX's First Passenger Flight to the Moon

Japanese Billionaire Buys Every Seat on SpaceX's First Passenger Flight to the Moon

Japanese Billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is taking a trip to outer space!

On Monday, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced during a press conference at the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles that Maezawa, 42, will be the first paying customer on its BFR rocket on a trip around the moon.

“This is my lifelong dream,” Maezawa, who founded the online fashion destination Zozotown, began. “Ever since I was a kid I have a loved the moon, just staring at the moon fueled my imagination.”

However, the wealthy art collector went on to explain that he doesn’t want to have this experience alone, but instead wants to share it with others in hopes of providing inspiration.

“I choose to go to the moon with artists,” Maezawa continued. “I choose to invite artists from all around the world on my journey.”

For the trip, which Maezawa is calling #DearMoon, the billionaire intends to bring six to eight artists with him to create work that “reflects their experience.”

Each guest will then be asked to create something after they return to Earth.

At this time, Maezawa has not decided which artists he would like to invite but plans on reaching out to various artists in different fields including painters, sculptors, photographers, musicians, film directors, fashion designers and architects.

“I love art and I look forward to seeing what different artists working together bring to life,” Maezawa added.

Maezawa also revealed #DearMoon will not take place until 2023. The trip will also be the first mission to the moon since Apollo 17 in 1972.

In addition to making history in 2023, Maezawa made headlines last year after he bought a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting for $110 million, the highest price for a piece of artwork by an American artist.

Meghan McCain Is 'Working Through' Her Father's Death: 'It's Been Really Hard on Her'

Meghan McCain Is 'Working Through' Her Father's Death: 'It's Been Really Hard on Her'

Since the death of her father John McCain on Aug. 25, Meghan McCain has remained out of the spotlight.

During Monday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Meghan’s friend S.E. Cupp opened up on how the 33-year-old The View co-host is doing.

“She’s okay. She’s still working through it,” Cupp, 39, told WWHL host Andy Cohen. “She’s taking a leave before she comes back into it all.”

“It’s been really hard on her. I have to say, you’ve been really, really good to her and her family,” Cupp told Cohen.

Cohen, 50, then responded with, “Oh, I’m crazy about her.”

Meghan was absent from her seat at The View’s season 22 premiere on Sept. 4.

“Meghan is like a sister to me and this was the hardest thing she has ever been through,” new co-host Abby Huntsman said on the show. “Her dad was her best friend, her dad was everything.”

For Sen. McCain’s Washington, D.C. funeral on Sept. 1, Meghan delivered a tearful eulogy.

“Dad, I love you. I always have,” Meghan said. “All that I am, all that I hope, all that I dream is grounded in what you taught me. You loved me and you showed me what love must be. Your greatness is woven into my life. It is woven into my mother’s life.”

“It is woven into my sister’s life. It is woven into my brother’s lives. It is woven into the lie and liberty of the country you sacrificed so much to defend.”

“My father is gone. My father is gone and my sorrow is immense but I know his life and I know it was great because it was good.”

Sen. McCain died at the age of 81 after a battle with glioblastoma, an extremely aggressive brain tumor.

Game of Thrones Wins 3rd Outstanding Drama Emmy as Its Final Season Set to Debut Next Year

Game of Thrones Wins 3rd Outstanding Drama Emmy as Its Final Season Set to Debut Next Year

Not for the first — or second — time, Game of Thrones was the big winner at the Emmy Awards.

On Monday night, it took home the 2018 trophy for outstanding drama series, presented by Kenan Thompson. The show’s co-creators, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, accepted the honor while backed by their sprawling cast and crew.

“This show could not be without the mad genius of George,” Benioff said of author George R.R. Martin, who was onstage and whose books form the basis for the series. “Thank you for letting us take care of your people.”

Weiss added, “The show is only as good as the people who make it, and we’re blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew and the greatest team of producers.”

Along with Game of Thrones, the drama nominees were The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us and Westworld. 

Many critics had predicted another win for Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which took home the outstanding drama honor at last year’s Emmys.

Game of Thrones sat out that race due to not airing a new season during the eligibility window.

In its return this year, the HBO drama was nominated for 22 awards. It also took home seven trophies from the Creative Arts Awards and a supporting actor award for Peter Dinklage.

The series has received a total of 46 Primetime Emmy Awards — including two previous outstanding drama wins, in 2015 and 2016 — more than any other primetime scripted television series.

It will have one more shot at the Emmys’ highest honor next year, when its final season is scheduled to air.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost, aired from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on NBC.

Emmys Sweep! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Wins for Outstanding Comedy Series — and 4 Other Awards!

Emmys Sweep! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Wins for Outstanding Comedy Series — and 4 Other Awards!

Congratulations to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!

The Amazon show took home the 2018 Emmy Award for outstanding comedy series on Monday night. Will Ferrell presented this year’s award, and Daniel Palladino accepted the honor on behalf of the show.

“Thank you the academy and to all the viewers who watched. You guys turned modern day New York into 1958 New York,” said Daniel.

“To our mothers watching at home. Also to everyone at Amazon. It’s been a very great ride. To our cast who bit into our 70-page scripts every week. We look forward to season 3,” he continued. “Thank you to the viewers. Thank you. ”

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was up against Atlanta, Barry, black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Glow, Silicon Valley, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Check out all of PEOPLE’s 2018 Emmys coverage here.

The series saw its leading lady Rachel Brosnahan win the award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, as well as Alex Borstein for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.

The show’s co-creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, also won for outstanding comedy writing and outstanding directing.

The outstanding comedy series was an especially exciting category this year because HBO’s Veep — the winner for the past three years in a row — was not nominated due to the timing of its latest episodes. However, Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ show will likely return to the race in 2019 for its final season.

Modern Family was notably absent as well. The ABC comedy series won the Emmy for the five years preceding Veep‘s streak.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost, are airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on NBC.
