Mary J. Blige is done dating broke men. She gave a radio interview and jokingly said,

“He has to have more money than me, that’s for sure... Because I’m not taking care of any more men!”

She was married for 12 years to a producer named Martin "Kendu" Isaacs until she discovered that he cheated on her with his assistant for 10 years. They divorced in 2016. A court ordered her to pay him $30,000 a month in spousal support.


Would you financially support your man? Would you date a scrub?

Indie Film Release Guide: February 22nd [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

I will tell you right now: unless you are pumped to see the latest How to Train Your Dragon movie, this weekend is pretty underwhelming for new films. I’m guessing that this is a result of the Academy Awards happening on Sunday, plus the fact that it’s the last weekend in the overall terrible movie month of February. Maybe think of this as a weekend to catch up on some recent films you haven’t gotten around to yet!

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: February 15th, February 8th, and February 1st.

If you want to share your movie watching habits and ratings with other ONTDers, please share your letterboxd handle in the comments. It’s a great site to keep track of films for the ONTD movie challenge!

Chloe Grace Moretz talks 'Greta' and how isolation can turn sinister

Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Grace Moretz star as two women who form a needed bond in NYC, but Frances (Moretz) realizes Greta (Huppert) is who not she seems. Frances gets help from best friend , Erica (Maika Monroe), to keep Greta and her escalating obsession the hell away.

"This story is like Fatal Attraction, it's like Basic Instinct, it's like Single White Female, but it's not about a man and a woman," Moretz said before the film screening. "It's not about this sexual, sordid relationship. It's about this almost cosmic star-crossing of two lost souls and how you can let this darkness into your heart from loss and loneliness."

Director Neil Jordan touched on how the city is a crowded but lonely place. "I think people are lonely in the city," said Jordan. "And the film is about isolation — about how grotesque the idea can become. We live in a world of isolation. Despite all of the social media, actually because of it in a way, because of all these ways in which we communicate looking at a phone, we get more and more isolated."

Miley Cyrus Is Going Back to Her Hip-hop Roots



On her new album: “There’s psychedelic and pop elements, there’s more hip-hop-leaning records. In the same way I like to kind of just be genderless, I like feeling genre-less.”

In 2017 she said of that phase: “I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little.” She added, “It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock’ — I am so not that.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is counter-suing man she hit while skiing, says she's the victim



Last month Gwyneth Paltrow was sued by a 72 year old man named Terry Sanderson after allegedly skiing into him and fleeing the scene at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah.

- Court documents reveal Paltrow "skied out of control" which knocked him out, caused him a brain surgery, four broken ribs and other injuries.

- Paltrow is now counter-suing, claiming to be the victim in her case against Sanderson. The document alleges, "[Gwyneth] was enjoying skiing with her family on vacation in Utah, when Plaintiff—who was uphill from Ms. Paltrow--plowed into her back. She sustained a full 'body blow.' Ms. Paltrow was angry with Plaintiff, and said so."

- The countersuit says Gwyneth was left "shaken and upset" by his allegations.
