Ricky Martin begins his day in silence. It’s fleeting, as it is for most parents—he has four kids under 13. “I have to find quiet before my babies wake up,” he says. Most mornings he gets up around 5:30 and finds a peaceful spot in his Beverly Hills home. “I go into yoga position, close my eyes,” he says, “and just take off for a minute.” He can be forgiven for needing a minute. It’s been more than two decades since Ricky Martin arrived, Venus in leather pants on a clamshell. He shook up the American pop establishment with a thrust of his hips and the invincible chorus of “Livin’ la Vida Loca” pulsing at 180 beats per minute. Women wanted him. Men wanted him. Madonna wanted him. (They recorded a duet…

In the final years of his life, there was no one closer to Frank Sinatra than Tony Oppedisano. From the time the Brooklyn-born jazz musician met the legendary entertainer at Jilly’s, Sinatra’s favorite Manhattan nightclub, in 1972, “it was like we’d known each other for years,” Oppedisano says. They bonded over their shared Italian roots, love of the American songbook and the value they both placed on loyalty, and when that first night ended—at 6 the next morning—Oppedisano says, “I knew my life would never be the same.” ‘HE COULD MESMERIZE A ROOM JUST BY WALKING THROUGH THE DOOR’ “Tony O” became Sinatra’s road manager and eventually his close confidant. Over long evenings at the singer’s beloved Palm Springs compound, the man known as the Voice revealed secrets he’d long held close,…

APPLE TV+ | Lisey’s Story A fantastical, frightening exploration of grief DRAMA The latest Stephen King adaptation is a standout, in part because the prolific author has described the romantic thriller as among his favorites—and because he’s written the eight-episode limited series himself. Julianne Moore stars as Lisey (pronounced “lee-see”), a widow who is struggling to find her footing two years after the death of her husband, Scott (Clive Owen), a famous author. Grief is like a scavenger hunt, she theorizes: “My prize is learning how to be alone, which is not much of a prize.” As Lisey attempts to clean out the barn where Scott once worked, she is hounded by both a professor (Ron Cephas Jones) and a terrifying superfan (Dane DeHaan) to release Scott’s unpublished manuscripts. Meanwhile, she’s also looking…

An Art-loving Cockatoo Finds Fame With Painting MELBOURNE, FLA. The next Picasso could be a parrot! Meet Goofy, a salmon-crested cockatoo at Florida’s Brevard Zoo, who dabbles in abstract art. In 2017, soon after Goofy arrived at the zoo, the cockatoo’s caretakers noticed the 27-year-old bird’s quick wit and interest in learning. “He loves being the center of attention,” says Jenna Bakhuizen, a keeper at the zoo. The zoo decided to help the bird steal the spotlight by teaching him to paint. Through positive-reinforcement training, Goofy learned to hold a sponge dipped in watercolor paint in his beak and sweep it across a canvas next to his perch. Goofy’s completed paintings are gifted to classrooms or auctioned to support local charities. For each artwork, Goofy gets a treat—peanuts and sunflower seeds are…
