David Beckham is considering coming out of retirement

Former England captain David Beckham has hinted that he may come out of retirement and return to playing football.

Beckham retired in 2013 after winning Ligue 1 during a short spell with Paris Saint-Germain, calling time on a career that had seen him play for Manchester United, Real Madrid, La Galaxy and AC Milan.

The 39-year-old admitted he had endured "a tough time" shortly after ending his football career but had gone through "a stage of enjoying the rest", but was now tempted to go back.

Beyoncé and Solange Are All Smiles at Gucci's Chime for Change Event

Beyoncé sure knows how to sexify a jumpsuit.

The stunning celeb attended the Chime for Change one-year anniversary event hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and T Magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman at Gucci Fifth Avenue in New York City, and looked absolutely gorgeous in a white jumpsuit with a plunging neckline that helped flaunt her cleavage.

Bey was joined by her younger sister Solange Knowles, who also gave a peek at her naughty pillows while wearing loose, bright orange blouse that was unbuttoned to her midriff and white pants. [OP Note: Naughty pillows? What is this writer smoking?]

Marvel’s ‘Dr. Strange’ to be Directed by Scott Derrickson

As Marvel keeps hunting for its “Ant-Man” director, the company continues to move forward with its next phase of films, tapping Scott Derrickson to helm “Dr. Strange.”

Talks are still early but sources say Derrickson, who most recently directed “Sinister,” is Marvel’s choice and a deal should be struck shortly.

Marvel had no comment.

The pic will be produced by Kevin Feige who repeatedly said how badly he wants to get a “Dr. Strange” movie made over the years. Executive producers on the project are Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, and Stephen Broussard.

The comic revolved around a former neurosurgeon who serves as the “Sorcerer Supreme” — the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Strange made his first appearance in the 1963 comic series “Strange Tales” and would go on to have his own comic series and would appear in several other comics that included “The Fantastic Four,” “Spider-Man” and Nick Fury.

Luc Besson's Lucy Receives R Rating

Universal Pictures' Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson, has received an R rating for "strong violence, disturbing images, and sexuality."

Lucy is an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The film also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.

The Colbert Report is more educational than CNN, Fox News, MSNBC

A new study at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center found that those who tuned in to watch host Stephen Colbert set up a super PAC and 501(c)(4) organization during the last presidential election cycle were better informed about campaign financing and the role of money in politics than viewers of other news channels and shows.

“It’s the first study actually showing that Colbert is doing a better job than other news sources at teaching people about campaign financing,” said Bruce W. Hardy, Ph.D., lead author of the study and a senior researcher at the APPC. “Consistently, we found that Colbert did better than every other news source we included in our model.”

The study, dubbed “Stephen Colbert’s Civics Lesson,” was published online and tested “The Colbert Report” against CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and broadcast nightly news as well as talk radio and newspapers as sources of political information.

Ranking Every [5] Dreamworks Animation Film: From Antz to How To Train Your Dragon 2


DreamWorks Animation is celebrating a big year in 2014. While the studio's first theatrical release would not come until 1998, it was October 12, 1994 that saw the birth of Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg's vision of a new movie studio, including, of course, Katzenberg's animation division.

That makes it 20 years of DreamWorks, and with the release of "How to Train Your Dragon 2" next week (on the heels of a Cannes debut last month), the studio is toasting two decades with one of the most elite installments of its entire portfolio.
That's a portfolio that is already 29 films deep, by the way, and it'll extend to 30 in November with the release of "The Penguins of Madagascar." There have been ups, there have been downs, but above all, an empire has been built.

So on the occasion of "Dragon 2," we thought maybe it was time we took a stab at ranking the whole of that empire, noting memorable moments from along the way. From 1998's "Antz" to this summer's highly anticipated sequel, see where your favorites might have ranked below.

And BEWARE: These are opinions. This is my (their) list. I'd be very curious to see what your list might look like, though, so feel free to tell us.

(Speaking of all of this, if you haven't read Nicole LaPorte's expert account of the rise and fall of DreamWorks, "The Men Who Would Be King," you're missing out on a hell of a story.)

Willa Malcomn

It Was John Barrowman's Idea to Make Willa Holland His On-Screen 'Arrow' Daughter!

The 22-year-old Arrow actress’ co-star John Barrowman recently revealed that it was his idea to make Thea his character Malcolm’s daughter!

“We had lunch with [executive producer] Andrew Kreisberg. It was season 1, we were talking about the future of Malcolm Merlyn, it was myself and my partner who said, ‘Why don’t you make Thea my daughter?’” John told EW. “They wanted Oliver to be my son, and I said, ‘No, it’s too Star Wars.’ It’s, ‘Oliver, I’m your father.’ But if you do Thea then it creates a whole new can of worms because Oliver will have a very difficult time killing Malcolm because he knows what it’s like to lose a father and won’t want to kill his sister’s father. And also it meant I was guaranteed a job for a long time. Yay!”

We can’t wait until Arrow comes back this fall!

What are you most excited for in season 3?


For your Consideration


Emmy voters are currently deciding on the best in television over the past year and, all over the streets of Los Angeles, your favorite TV shows are plastered on billboards. The Walking Dead, True Detective and many more are being pushed by their respective networks, hoping voters check them out or at least have their memories jogged about shows that finished a while ago.

Of all the ads emblazoned up and down Sunset Blvd or Highland Ave., the ones for Mad Men really stand out. Which makes sense. A show about advertising should have the best advertising. While the show’s creative team has done a great job with that in the past, these ads take things to another level.

“Veep” star Reid Scott talks about his role on the most insulting show on TV

“Jesus, look at his stupid gaping mouth. Let’s put stuff in it.”

This line, delivered by Reid Scott on the HBO comedy “Veep,” isn’t the most inventive insult aimed at the show’s lumbering scapegoat, Jonah Ryan, but it’s one of the few we can print in this magazine. Some of the best (and most unprintable) lines come from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the Vice President of the United States, and whose fans include real-life VP Joe Biden.

14-Year-Old Justin Bieber Sings Parody 'One Less Lonely N*****' And About Joining the KKK [VIDEO]

A 14-year-old Justin Bieber did a horribly racist version of his own song 5 years ago ... looking into the camera and singing ... "There'll be one less lonely n*****."

Bieber and his team tell TMZ ... they want this video out, because he wants to own what he did.

We're told when Justin was 14 ... he had seen a random video online in which a comedian parodied his song, "One Less Lonely Girl," but the guy replaced the word "girl" with the n-word.

Justin then parodied the parody ... right on camera.

We're told years ago Justin told both Usher and Will Smith about the videos, saying he knew almost immediately it was a stupid thing to do ... Usher took him into a room and showed him historically racist videos to drive home how hurtful these words can be.

Bieber and his team say various people have tried to extort him over the last few years -- demanding money for both this video and the one he made when he was 15.  Justin says he will not be shaken down anymore. He says he wants people to see the video and he wants to accept responsibility.

Justin apologized several days ago ... saying, "I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance."

#NotHappy with Pharrell's Elle UK Photo; Pharrell Apologizes

The “Happy”-singing music star, apparently tired of Mountie culture, traded his signature Smokey the Bear chapeau for a Native American headdress on the cover of Elle UK.

The cover photo has incited anger and disappointment — and prompted Pharrell to apologize.

“I respect and honor every kind of race, background and culture. I am genuinely sorry,” he said Wednesday morning through his publicist.

It’s unclear what prompted Pharrell’s fashion change, but in a promotional blurb on the Elle UK site, it appears the impetus might have come from the magazine’s staff.

[W]e persuaded ELLE Style Award winner Pharrell to trade his Vivienne Westwood mountie hat for a native American feather headdress in his best ever shoot.

The potential perils of this “fashion” choice seem obvious. Recently, Oklahoma’s first daughter Christina Fallin — a would-be rock star herself — got in trouble for a similar head-wear.

The Elle UK Facebook page has been flooded with negative comments highlighting how disrespectful it is to wear Native American headdress if you happen to not be an actual Indian chief.

“To all those who say ‘I don’t see the big deal, he respects native people.’ No..” wrote Facebook user Taylor Red Fox Smith. “Thats just ignorance. NOT EVEN A REGULAR NATIVE WOULD DARE PUT THIS ON UNLESS THEY EARNED EVERY FEATHER IN WHAT IS WORN BY ONLY A CHIEF. Please if ur not native, just stop.”

On Twitter, commentary has taken off with #NotHappy hashtag, a sardonic reference to Pharrell’s mega-hit, “Happy.”

12 (6) People Who Could Play Doctor Strange But Probably Won't

An almanac of actors for the Sorcerer Supreme.

Like a juggernaut steered by an angry green man, the Marvelverse is careering into its third phase with a full cargo of bullion and fresh ideas aplenty. Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man kicks off Phase 3, followed by two yet-to-be-officially-announced projects in the summer of 2016 and ’17 respectively. One of those will be Doctor Strange, a project the studio’s Kevin Feige calls “totally different from anything else we have”. But who will step into the Sorcerer Supreme’s magic shoes and carry Marvel’s next superhero onto the big screen? We’ve had a lot of fun guessing.

Patrick Dempsey
If fanboy fervour and sheer enthusiasm were deciding factors, Patrick Dempsey would already be measured up for Doctor Strange’s silky cape. He’s been lobbying for the role since it was barely a twinkle in Kevin Feige’s eye, after being pointed to the superpowered neurosurgeon/sorceror by Grey’s Anatomy crew members. “It would be a fun one to do," he's said. "And I wouldn’t want him to be Mister-weepy-doctor guy”. But will McDreamy become, er, McSorcery? Well, Dempsey’s Transformers villain had a certain menace, he’s jolly handsome and with that Grey’s role under this belt, he’d nail the neurosurgery bits. But his lack of chunky big-screen roles may count against him.

I know it won't happen, but I'm rooting for Patrick, tbh.

National Front calls Madonna 'Granny Gaga'

With Fascism on the rise in Europe, Madonna took to Instagram to announce her disgust at fat-right Fascist, Marine Le Pen's historic victory in France this week. Shockingly, a huge % of Madonna's fan base either voted for Le Pen's First National (FN), or is pro-Le Pen in general. Needless to say, the reactions Madonna received in the comment sections of her Instagram and Facebook accounts were less than flattering.

France's National Front on Tuesday branded Madonna a "Granny Gaga" after the global pop icon became embroiled in a new row with the resurgent far right party.

Madonna had enraged the FN in 2012 by showing a video depicting its leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika over her forehead at a Paris concert.

She took another swipe at the party on Monday with a post on her Instagram account.

The post featured the front page of French newspaper Liberation from May 26, the day after the FN topped the polls in European elections with a record 25 percent of the vote.

The page shows a triumphant Le Pen celebrating the victory next to the headline, "FN France".

Madonna's caption read: "Russia. Ukraine. Venezuela ...., now France?!!!!! #fight Fascism #fightdiscrimination #fightlynchmobmentality #fighthatred#fightforffreedom #revolutionoflove

FN vice-president Florian Phillipot responded with a sarcastic suggestion Madonna was seeking controversy to court publicity at a time when her career has been eclipsed by the global stardom of younger rival Lady Gaga.

"In politics too, Granny Gaga has lost the plot," Philippot tweeted.

Soccer Aid 2014 Post

As the World Cup looms ever closer and hopes start mounting that this may just be England’s year, it’s almost time for Soccer Aid, another star-studded sports match where all proceeds will go to charity.

Soccer Aid, which has attracted support from sporting and acting royalty, will raise money for UNICEF, who have carried out emergency and development work in the UK and abroad since 1946. In 2012 the players raised a total of almost £5 million but with the help of ticket sales and merchandise, this year's squad will be hoping to top that.

Stars confirmed for the biannual event, now in its fifth year, include... Hollywood heavyweights James McAvoy and Jeremy Renner, singer Olly Murs, Welsh actor Michael Sheen, Mamma Mia star Dominic Cooper and comedian Jack Whitehall, who will be making his debut for the squad. Robbie Williams – who co-created Soccer Aid back in 2006 – will also be hoping to lead the team to glory in his new role as England’s assistant manager.

The English celebrities will be in the capable hands of West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce with coaches Peter Reid and Bradley Walsh on board to provide additional support, along with retired professional footballers Jamie Redknapp, Paul Ince and Teddy Sheringham.

England’s players will take on the Rest of the World team in the hope of defending their title as Soccer Aid champions. But standing in their way is an international line-up that includes chef Gordon Ramsay, comedian Patrick Kielty and Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner. Actor Michael Sheen will return to captain the squad, and Chelsea manager José Mourinho has agreed to oversee proceedings.

The match will be held at Old Trafford on 8 June and broadcast live from 6pm on ITV channels, with a preview programme on 6 June (9pm, ITV) featuring behind-the-scenes footage of match preparation. Check out the full teams below...

Independence Day Sequel Getting Rewrite

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's nearly 20 years since aliens blew up the White House in Independence Day, and Roland Emmerich and his team are quietly readying a two-part sequel. At present, little is really known about Independence Day 2 (or ID Forever Part 1) other than the much-publicised news that Will Smith won't be returning. Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum are thought to be reprising their roles, however.

In interviews, Emmerich has mentioned that the sequel will take place 20 years after the original (appropriate, given that its release date is currently set for summer 2016), and that a new wave of invaders will appear to menace Earth. To balance the odds a little, our armies have harnessed some of the alien technology left behind by the previous incursion, which will be helmed by a new generation of characters related to those in the first film.

The last we heard, screenwriter James Vanderbilt was in charge of the script, but the latest news from Variety suggests that Carter Blanchard has been brought in to provide a rewrite. Blanchard's other projects include an adaptation of the 80s videogame Spyhunter and a big-screen version of Mark Millar's comic, Kindergarten Heroes.

Despite the rewrite, Independence Day 2 is still currently slated for a July 1, 2016 release.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman Join Cast For Gay Rights Film 'Stonewall'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Roland Emmerich's gay-rights film Stonewall has added Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King to the cast ahead of the start of production.

The film, which will star Jeremy Irvine, tells the story of the riots of June 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. Emmerich's film will focus on one man's political awakening sparked by the riots, which became a galvanizing event for the gay rights movement. Newcomer Jonny Beauchamp and Caleb Landry Jones also star in the project.

Irvine plays Danny Winters who flees to New York, leaving behind his beloved sister (King). Homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between: the Stonewall Inn. At the bar, Danny meets the suave Trevor (Rhys Meyers) before catching the eye of Ed Murphy (Perlman), Stonewall's repulsive manager who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain, and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their "disappearances." It all spirals out of control when the police unexpectedly raid Stonewall. In a storm of anger and with the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.

Emmerich, the helmer of White House Down and Independence Day, will direct from a script by Jon Robin Baitz. Emmerich, Michael Fossat and Marc Frydman are producing while Kirstin Winkler and Adam Press are executive producing.

World War Z Sequel To Be Written By Steven Knight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ever since its film production was announced. World War Z was meant to be a franchise vehicle for star Brad Pitt. Indeed, with the reveal in March that The Impossible’s J.A. Bayona would be directing the film, it felt like it was finally moving in the right direction. However, worries of a repeat of World War Z’s infamous scripting problems may be a thing of the past with the latest bit of news.

Variety is reporting that Steven Knight, the writer of Eastern Promises and the recent writer-director of Locke, has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the zombie apocalypse sequel.

The production woes of World War Z are well known. The Marc Forster directed action-horror tent pole had the entire last third of its movie reshot after delays pushed it until summer 2013—where it premiered to favorable reviews that preceded it earning $540 million worldwide, the highest grossing turn of Pitt’s career.

Pitt is to return with Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner as producers through Plan B. The film is expected to continue the story of Max Brooks' source novel.

Bryan Cranston Developing ‘Dangerous Book For Boys’ TV Series

Bryan Cranston’s Moon Shot Entertainment is getting down to business in developing television projects through his Moon Shot Entertainment banner.

The Breaking Bad star’s company has optioned the rights to Conn and Hal Iggulden’s The Dangerous Book for Boys with plans to develop it as a comedy series. Moon Shot has a first-look pact with Sony Pictures TV, where Cranston worked for five seasons on Breaking Bad.

Series will follow three boys as they use their imaginations to navigate growing up without a father. Cranston is working on the project with Moon Shot exec James Degus.

Dangerous Book for Boys is a collection of tongue-in-cheek stories and how-to passages designed to help boys of the digital age embrace the importance of maintaining a spirit of adventure and learn how to do everything from climbing trees to building go-karts to palming coins. The book became a best-seller in the U.K. in 2006 and has since been adapted for the U.S. and other markets.

Dangerous Book was optioned for a film adaptation by Scott Rudin’s banner in 2007, but the project never got off the ground.

Moon Shot is focused on producing drama and comedy series for broadcast and cable networks. There’s no word yet on a writer to adapt the Dangerous Book series treatment. Cranston has said his goal with Moon Shot is to look for unusual perspectives and storytelling techniques.


Tom Cruise says he invented world premiere tours

On "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday, Tom Cruise laid claim to inventing something that is now common practice when it comes to promoting movies. While he was on a four-month tour to promote "Top Gun" overseas, Cruise realized that he was missing out on being able to work on other projects. So he claims that's when he got the idea to only spend a couple days in each country. And since he loves attending premieres, his idea was to do a big premiere in each country and then move on to the next place.

looking for jonathan groff: this century’s gay icon of tv, broadway and film


“I hate karaoke,” Jonathan Groff tells me while shrugging on a leather jacket. “I love going to see other people do karaoke, but performing karaoke stresses me out. I get nervous that it’s like not in the right key. Or will I be able to hear the band? Is the mix right? Too many things out of my control.” This might come as a surprise, considering Groff, 29, was nominated for a Tony for his first role in a Broadway production, Spring Awakening, at the tender age of 22, before going on to star as Lea Michele’s vocally gifted boyfriend, Jesse St. James, on Glee.

But the baby-faced Groff, currently gearing up to film the second season of HBO’s comedy-drama Looking (oft-called the gay Girls [by idiots]), is more low-key than you’d expect from a guy who can claim Lea Michele as a BFF. (The two were co-stars in Spring Awakening, and Groff has to apologize for cutting our interview short, but he has to go meet Michele at Barnes & Noble to be on hand for a Q&A about her new memoir, Brunette Ambition.)

'Orange Is the New Black' season 2 review: Me vs. we

Orange Is the New Black: Season 2: 13 episodes available at 12:01 a.m. Friday on Netflix.

The second season of "Orange Is the New Black" arrives Friday with some new characters, an expanded focus in the microcosm that is the Litchfield Penitentiary for women and an even deeper exploration of the backstories of the inmates.

There's almost no point in worrying about spoilers because so many fans will be binge-watching "Orange" just after midnight Friday, you'll be lucky to avoid a discussion of even the most rudimentary plot development by noon. Still, for the sake of preserving the sheer joy of watching the 13 new episodes, we'll be avoiding any real spoilers here.

In a general sense, though, what creator Jenji Kohan has done is to be expected, because we saw it happening last year. The longer Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) spends at Litchfield, the more she's had to adapt to the rules - both those set by the prison and those established by the inmates themselves as they've developed a mini United Nations of race, age, ethnicity and sexual orientation.

As she began to be absorbed into the general population, we started paying equal attention to the other inmates, and that underscores one of the most compelling themes of the series: How does an individual maintain identity within a social milieu.

Angelina Jolie’s 10(5) Best Red Carpet Looks Ever

She may travel the world as a Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and have a brood of six children with fiancé Brad Pitt, but Angelina Jolie still finds time to look fierce on the red carpet. The actress first made waves in 1999′s Girl, Interrupted (for which she won an academy award), and has gone on to star in hits like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Tourist, and the highly-anticipated upcoming Maleficent. Jolie made her directorial debut in 2011 with In the Land of Blood and Honey, and has another film project, Unbroken, hitting theaters later this year.

Jolie seems to have it all, including a killer wardrobe. She has consistently delivered jaw-dropping looks, balancing class, edginess, and sexy all at the same time. From her stunning appearance at the 2014 Oscars in a sparkling Elie Saab gown to the Saint Laurent Paris suit she donned at the 2014 BAFTAs, Jolie knows how to make a style statement. Other favorite moments? Her dazzling canary yellow Emanuel Ungaro gown from the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and the black velvet Atelier Versace gown from the 2012 Academy Awards that became an instant internet sensation. We love Jolie for her fearless and edgy fashion choices that exude confidence and glamour.

The camera zooms in on Lana Del Rey as she turns away from the crowd, hiding all but the slightest silhouette of her face. In the background, a massive screen flickers deep purple and blue; beside her on stage sits a potted palm. For one full minute: riotous, embracing applause. Gently, she wipes a tear with the middle finger of her left hand, then wipes her nose, which from this angle appears as the bottom-half of a perfectly slender S curve that begins on her forehead, shimmies down her face and ramps off into the void. Finally, she turns to address the audience, smiles and says, “I think you’re going to have to sing it for me.” The piano starts, and everyone complies, very loudly and very clearly. She tries to sing too, of course, then pauses to cry and smile at the same time, seemingly overwhelmed by the audience’s affection. But no one else stops singing: It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you…

Naomi Watts Joins Divergent Sequel 'Insurgent'


Naomi Watts has signed on to join the next three films in Lionsgate's Divergent franchise.

The actress, who recently committed to star in Gus Van Sant's Sea of Trees opposite Matthew McConaughey, is joining the cast of Divergent sequel Insurgent as Evelyn, leader of the Factionless. Watts' deal calls for to co-star in the futuristic franchise's two final movies, which are based on Veronica Roth's YA novel Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy.

Watts will jump right to Insurgent, which began shooting last week in Atlanta. Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet and Miles Teller -- who all appeared in Divergent -- return for the sequel. Watts joins Octavia Spencer as new additions to the cast. After Insurgent wraps in September, Watts will move on to Sea of Trees, which will take her through November. The in-demand actress is mulling a number of films after that.

Robert Schwentke, who replaced Divergent helmer Neil Burger, is directing Insurgent from a screenplay written by Brian Duffield and Akiva Goldsman.

Red Wagon's Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing alongside Pouya Shahbazian.

Insurgent puts Watts, who typically gravitates toward indie projects with auteurs, in the YA tentpole game. Divergent, which opened March 21, has earned $267 million worldwide. Still, she is no stranger to commercial films, having starred in Peter Jackson's King Kong and The Ring films. Watts has three films awaiting release: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman, The Weinstein Co.'s St. Vincent -- opposite Melissa McCarthy -- and Noah Baumbach's While We're Young.

She is repped by CAA and Untitled.

Following the success of his Biblical epic, Noah, earlier this year, Darren Aronofsky is looking to bring his next project to the small screen. Deadline reports that the Requiem for a Dream helmer has plans to executive produce an HBO miniseries adaptation of Margaret Atwood's "MaddAddam" trilogy and is potentially planning to direct as well.

The trilogy began with "Oryx and Crake" in 2003. It was followed by "The Year of the Flood" in 2009 and "MaddAddam" in 2013.

Atwood herself is attached to serve as consulting producer.


OH SHIT, I just remembered that brain-dead statement from people connected with "Noah" that the movie was all-white because they were trying to be post-racially Mythic and Universal.

Bieber's Instagram post focuses on 3 verses -- 2 from the book of John and one from Isaiah -- and all of them deal with forgiveness and salvation for your sins.

Damon Lindelof Promises You His New Show Won’t End Like ‘LOST’ + He's not in denial of the finale

Being a script doctor is not exactly thankless work — the in-demand ones are thanked to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars — but you’re typically the second or third or fourth person brought in on a screenplay, a process that Lindelof, a born collaborator, likens to “raising someone else’s child with no overlap.” So when Ellenberg called with the prospect of another TV show, he jumped at it, even though — or perhaps because — he was still not quite over what happened after the final episode of “Lost.”

Blind Item: The Loyal Customer

For years I’ve been saying that she is such a bitch. Like, terrifying. And humourless, unless you’re famous. But on a red carpet? If she’s sneering at you? There’s venom. Behind that cool, tall beauty, she’s vicious.

Now, maybe I understand why.

Turns out she likes her cocaine. She’s much smarter about it than, say, people who end up under LA bridges with sketchy explanations, or child stars who rage down the Pacific Coast Highway chasing down their enemies. How does she keep winning awards and protecting her reputation? How has she kept the sh-t off of her? Because beyond her love life, there has never, ever been any gossip about her indulgences, beyond the occasional fruit, especially now that she has someone else to look after.

One explanation (on top of her discretion): Customer Loyalty. Same dealer for a decade. He supplies only to very exclusive clientele and is selective about his regular customers. She’s a regular customer. It’s more than occasional bump. Never mind the boyfriend, that might be her most steady relationship.

History's Sons of Liberty casts BinBons and Hank Schrader as Founding Fathers


  History has revealed the cast for Sons of Liberty, a six-part miniseries that will follow a defiant and radical group of young men — Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Joseph Warren included – as they band together in secrecy to spark a revolution and make America a nation.

 Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia), Henry Thomas (E.T.) and Michael Raymond-James (Once Upon a Time) will play Sam Adams, John Adams and Paul Revere, respectively, while Rafe Spall (Prometheus) and Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) will fill the roles of Hancock and Warren.

 Additionally, Marton Csokas (Rogue) will play Thomas Gage, the British general who is sent to handle the unrest in Boston, while Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) has been cast as “the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat” Benjamin Franklin.

 “From the Boston Tea Party to the Declaration of Independence, Sons of Liberty will tell the rebellious story of America’s greatest fight for freedom,” History EVP Dirk Hoogstra said in touting the miniseries, which begins production this summer.


How do we feel about this casting, ONTD?  idgaf i'm just happy MRJ will be on my tv again.

The Female Beatles™ Confirms 2nd Single + Follow-Up To ‘The New Classic’ !

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“[L]et this serve as proof anything is possible,” Iggy Azalea said, regarding how she became the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in a decade. And, based on the rate she’s working, Azalea hopes to churn out more hits soon. In an interview with Miss Info for Hot 97, she confirmed that she has already started working on a follow-up to her Def Jam debut The New Classic.

Azalea plans to start recording new songs in August, after she wraps a few festival dates. She didn’t reveal who will appear on the new album, though she did reveal that she wants Missy Elliott to appear.

Meanwhile, Azalea plans to release “Black Widow,” featuring Rita Ora and co-written by Katy Perry, as her next single. It would be interesting to see how that song adds to her current success; recently, thanks to “Fancy” and her guest verse in Ariana Grande‘s “Problem,” she became the first act since the Beatles to have her first two chart entries rank first and second on the Hot 100.


Mods, can we get a 'slay' tag???

The CMT Awards went down at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, on Wednesday. True to form, country music's finest were dressed to the nines and ready to party! Carrie Underwood, who is nominated for two awards, hit the red carpet in a flowing printed gown with her close pal Miranda Lambert. The ladies are also set to take the stage together for a performance of their hit, "Something Bad".

This trashy mess of people. BTW, Taylegend isn't here, so the quality of this red carpet is even lower than usual. Instead we get Jayson Dayrooloh, a dude dressed as a pilot (no, really), and a lot of tacky.

FUCK THIS POST. I think everything should be fixed now.

Jon Hamm Once Told a Pregnant Amy Poehler to "Get Her S--t Together"


Sometimes stressful situations bring out the best in people, right?

In her soon-to-be-released memoir, Yes Please, Amy Poehler recalls the time she first got to know her now-close friend, Jon Hamm, during Saturday Night Live rehearsals back in 2008. Poehler shared how she found out that her doctor had passed away shortly after doing a Mad Men-themed sketch on the live television show.

"I called my doctor 'cause at the end there you kind of have to call in every day, and the receptionist was crying. I said, ‘What's wrong?' and she said, ‘Oh, he passed away last night.'"

"I was due the next day. So it's my first kid, I'm in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying. And it was like the punchline to a joke, it's like, my doctor just died and I'm due tomorrow.

"And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, ‘This is a really important show for me. I'm gonna need you to get your s--t together.' And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself—I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."

Eight Things You Need to Know About Marvel's ~DOCTOR STRANGE~

With Sinister director Scott Derrickson tapped by Marvel Studios to helm their big screen adaptation of Doctor Strange, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to explore a slightly more magical side. However, like Ant-Man and Black Panther, the Master of the Mystic Arts is a little on the obscure side.


It’s likely that the movie will be released alongside Captain America 3 in 2016 now that a director has been found, and with the search for an actor to play the Stan Lee and Steve Ditko creation underway (Jared Leto and Johnny Depp have been rumoured [fuck no]), we thought now would be a good time to take a closer look at the Sorcerer Supreme and to tell you everything you need to know about him before the movie hits.

"They will have children, but after the wedding."

After recent reports suggested Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were expecting their first child together, the actress' father has said the couple will wait till after they're married... which isn't likely to be too far away.

The 28-year-old and her Hollywood actor beau, who got engaged at Christmas, are planning to wed in the autumn according to her dad David, Grazia reports.

"There is a right way to do things and she and Johnny are the type of people that do it right. We will have grandchildren, but after the wedding," he told the magazine from his Los Angeles home.

He went on to say that it was Johnny, 50, who was keen to marry Amber, after previously splitting from his ex Vanessa Paradis in 2012.

"It's the time in Johnny's life where he is thinking he can spend more time with the kids," David added.


Ick. The thought of Amber and The Mummy having sex is worse than imagining your parents doing it.
