Twitter says it will improve harassment policies after Zelda Williams quits service


Twitter has long received flack for its weak responses to clear instances of abuse over its network, but now it finally says that it's going to do... something. In a statement provided to The Washington Post with regard to the harassment of Zelda Williams, Twitter's vice president of trust and safety says that the company is currently "evaluating how we can further improve our policies to better handle tragic situations like this one." He says that may include making Twitter's policies stricter with regard to self-harm or private information, and it could also mean better watching out for users who have just had a family member die.

Introducing Donald Trump's Other Daughter, Future Payola Pop Princess Tiffany Trump

We all know Ivanka Trump from Celebrity Apprentice and other high-profile appearances, but Donald Trump has another daughter who's managed to stay almost completely out of the spotlight for two decades. (When The Donald is your dad, that's really saying something.) Her name is Tiffany Trump and her mother is Marla Maples. As of late, however, the 20-year-old has been raising her public profile a bit… because the mysterious heiress wants to be a pop star.

Get ready for a heavy dose of Alanis Morissette next year

To honour the 20th anniversary of her mega-selling breakthrough album, Jagged Little Pill, the 40-year-old singer-songwriter will release a covers album featuring some as-yet unnamed artists (we asked, but she wouldn't crack) tackling her most famous record, a Jagged musical earmarked for Broadway, and an nearly completed memoir.

And don't think for a second that it's all about nostalgia next year for the 16-time Juno/seven-time Grammy winner – she's also working on a new album, which is currently pencilled in for mid-2015 release.

"I have 13 new songs, which are in the very beginning stages," Morissette says. "I'm excited about it. I have so much I want to say right now."

Chatting down the line from Los Angeles, she also had a lot to say to QMI Agency about her current acoustic tour (which touches down at Casino Rama in Rama, Ont., on Friday night and the Colosseum at Caesars in Windsor, Ont., on Sept. 26), the crazy times in the mid-'90s, being a parent on the road (she has a three year old boy with husband/rapper Mario “Souleye” Treadway), and her thoughts on that problem-plagued dude from Stratford, Ont.

Lady Gaga upsets Japan with racially insensitive couture!

Lady Gaga is in Tokyo. According to her, it's her "favorite place." Too bad she's just pissed off some folks online in Japan.

On her Instagram account, Lady Gaga uploaded two photos of herself wearing a colorful outfit with Korean characters written on it. The Korean characters 컬러 appear mean just that: color. Innocuous stuff, right? Well...

There's already a thread on 2ch, Japan's largest online forum, titled "Lady Gaga, Who's Visiting Japan, Is Wandering Around Roppongi in Clothes with Korean Characters. This Proves That From the White Person's Point of View, Japan and Korea are the Same." Yikes!

Lupita Nyong'o Celebrates Friend's Gay Wedding With Message of Love

8-15-2014 8-23-47 AM

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o attended the wedding of celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson and his partner Jason Backe in NYC yesterday and posted the above Instagram pic with a message congratulating the newlyweds:

"I witnessed the man who adds so much beauty to my life legalize his beautiful marriage. Thank you for the reminder that love and its declaration can be simple. Congratulations @tedgibsonbeauty."

Gibson sent back a message of thanks to the actress via Instagram:

What a fun evening thank you @lupitanyongo for making it so special xo

They face the toughest decision of their lives when they are later reunited in their homeland.

Outlander renewed for second season

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Break out the whiskey, Outlander fans: Starz’ time-travel romance has been greenlit for season 2.

The series adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novels will return, presumably next year. The second season will be based upon the second of Gabaldon’s eight Outlander novels — Dragonfly in Amber.

But wait: Season 2 could be shorter than the first (or, less likely, longer). Starz isn’t specifying an episode count at this early stage and is only publicly committing to “at least” 13 episodes for the next round. The current debut season is 16 episodes — which is considered a rather large commitment for a premium cable drama (most pay cable shows have 13 annual episodes, but several have less — including that other novel-based fantasy drama, HBO’s Game of Thrones, which has 10 per year).

Starz says viewership of last week’s premiere has surpassed 5 million views across all platforms, and — the network emphasized — drew roughly equal male and female viewership. “The overwhelming support Outlander has received from the fans, viewers and critics made the decision for us to go ahead with the second book a very easy one,” said Starz’ CEO Chris Albrecht. “Diana Gabaldon has given us years of great drama. With an incredible artist such as Ronald D. Moore at the helm and a cast as spectacular as this, we look forward to continue this spell-binding journey with Claire, Jamie, Frank, Brianna, Roger and everybody over the centuries.”


J.Cole's Michael Brown Tribute 'Be Free' Might Be His Most Emotional Song Ever

Enough is enough.
Like many of us, J. Cole is completely fed up with the injustice and tragic murders of Black men and women, boys and girls, in America. Michael Brown was the last straw.
So in the wee hours of the morning, while you snoozed, he worked. And what resulted is probably the most emotional song you've heard from Cole yet.

His voice raspy, soaked with tears and maybe Hennessy, the 29-year-old Carolinian MC sings and shouts of his desire for true freedom for his people.

Mayor Gives Rape-Celebrating Rapper the Key to a City with 12,000 Untested Rape Kits.

This article contains sensitive information about sexual assault.

Rapper Rick Ross was in Memphis this week for the grand opening of his latest area Wingstop location and picked up some more hardware to go with his gold records: the key to the city.

Ross has opened 25 Wingstop locations across the Southeast, five in Memphis. His latest location is on Union Ave in Midtown. That location has been operating since June.

At the grand opening of the Union location this week, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton presented Ross with a symbolic key to the city.

"It’s a huge honor for me and my team to have Mayor Wharton give me the key to the city. In every city we open a Wingstop, it is our goal to make a positive impact. We appreciate his support,” Ross added.

Rick Ross and Mayor

Rick Ross finally learned his lesson -- rapping about rape doesn't win you many fans or sponsorship deals -- and officially apologized for his date-rape track ... one day after Reebok dropped him as a spokesman

Ross received a wave of negative backlash for a line in a song that said: "Put Molly all up in her champagne, she ain't even know it, I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it." Molly being slang for Ecstasy.

In his apology, Ross said, "Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets."

He added, "My choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize."

Ross originally issued a half-assed apology following the song's release, claiming people misunderstood the lyrics. Obviously now, he's changed his tune.

MTV's 'Scream' Casts its Sheriff, Hot Teacher, 'Arrow' Favorite


Two weeks after casting the bulk of its core cast, the adaptation of Kevin Williamson's hit film franchise has added four new faces to its cast with Arrow favorite Bex Taylor-Klaus replacing the previously set Amy Forsyth.

Jamie Travis (Faking It) will direct the pilot, which hails from Dimension Films and The Weinstein Co. Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds, Revenge) penned the original script, with Jill Blotevogel (Harper's Island, Ravenswood) on board to executive produce and serve as showrunner. Harvey and Bob Weinstein will return to exec produce MTV's reboot alongside Wes Craven, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad, all of whom served in the same capacity on the original franchise. Williamson is not involved in the MTV take. MTV's original Scream had Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley — they are still attached to exec produce via their DiGa Vision banner.

Tom Hanks Has a Typewriter iPad App, and It’s Actually Decent


Hanx Writer mimics the look and feel of old typewriters -- except for the whole touchscreen thing.

Typing on an iPad is not as satisfying as typing on a physical keyboard, which itself is not as satisfying as typing on a typewriter.

Tom Hanks knows this, so he commissioned some app developers to create a typewriter app for iPad bearing his name. You can download Hanx Writer for free right now.

It’s actually not bad. Each key rings out a little thwock when you tap on it, and you can see the type bar quickly hammer each letter (sort of a faded Courier New) onto the page. You also have the option to strike through deleted characters with an “x” instead of erasing them completely.

i don't think u redi for Bey/Rihanna Collab

After spitting the hardest Jay Z-penned verse of the year, Beyonce is reportedly following up her Nicki Minaj-assisted “Flawless (Remix)” with another remix.

Word is Queen Bey may have tapped queen of sex appeal Rihanna for a remix to “Blow,” Mrs. Carter’s steamy fairytale about Jay Z’s appetite for her “Skittles.

There’s a screenshot floating around the Internet that suggests a “Blow” (remix?) has been registered in the ASCAP database with both Beyoncé and Rihanna listed as performers.

While all this sounds great, there’s one problem — Rihanna’s name is spelled wrong in the listing.

A quick search of the ASCAP database shows there are a few other of Rihanna’s songs listed under the ‘incorrect’ spelling…but we’re not exactly sure what that means.

The Carters are so painstakingly robotic and awkward around each other that any joy I get from this news comes from Rihanna as I’m always here for her filth and raunchiness. Take her out and it’s another song about Jay Z and Beyonce having calculated robot sex disguised as real marital relations.

Project Runway 13x04: A Suitable Twist

Sponsor challenge! Sponsor challenge! We open at a Red Robin restaurant slightly removed from NYC, where the designers are lined up before an array of male models in slightly oversized vintage men's suiting from all sorts of dark corners of fashion history. Corduroy, floral print, tweeds, lapels wider than a highway, truly misguided color's a nightmare, really. A restaurant spokesman explains that Red Robin is a burger joint that likes to look at things with a fresh perspective, and that they're interested in prompting the designers to do the same. Ghosts of Sponsored Challenges Past flash before my eyes. Are they going to redesign the Red Robin waitstaff uniforms? Make clothing inspired by cheeseburgers? Is this going to be the season's awful hot mess of a menswear challenge?! Blessedly, it is none of the above.

Challenge: Create a high-fashion womenswear look using the jacket and pants of a vintage men's suit.

Parameters: The suit must be a prominent part of the final design. Supplemental fabric can be purchased from Mood. As the winner of the previous challenge, Sandhya gets her first choice of suit, as well as the power to assign suits to the rest of the designers.

Couple's 'Frozen'-Themed Marriage Proposal an Act of True Love

She said yes — to a Frozen-themed marriage proposal.

The Disney movie warmed the hearts of Denver natives Brian Davis and Michelle Seguin, a couple who met in college and quickly fell in love with Frozen, as they did with each other.

So when the time came for Davis to pop the question to his girlfriend, it only made sense for him to reenact a scene from Frozen. UK-based photo agency Medavia, which owns the images below told Mashable that, unsurprisingly, the fairy-tale proposal, which took place in May, required an extensive amount of work to prepare.

First, Davis located a castle in Denver, Colorado, settling on Castle Marne Inn. He rented a horse and ordered custom-made, tailored costumes that replicated outfits from the film: Anna's coronation dress and Hans' prince outfit.

New Music: Ella Henderson - "Missed" [Premiere / Studio Version]

Ella Henderson will be releasing her debut album "Chapter One" in just one month - on September 19th - in the UK via Simon Cowell's label Syco, but that ain't stopping the 'X Factor UK' 2012 finalist from releasing new music from that first album of hers to keep fans' appetite in check. Via the Shazam app, Ella premiered a song from "Chapter One" that may sound familiar to you. It's called "Missed", and yes, it's the original song sweet Ella performed during her "X Factor" audition two years ago when she was only 16.

At her audition, Ella only performed a few seconds of "Missed". But the chorus of the song was enough for the 10 million viewers of the UK edition of the talent show to fall in love with her and ultimately made her a finalist on the 2012 edition - which James Arthur won. Now finally we have the full version and the full lyrics of "Missed".

Today In "Not Today Satan" Fuckery: A Real Life Purge in Kentucky?


Could a real life threat, based on the movie The Purge actually happen in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend? Residents of the mid-south city are being warned about just that being possible and authorities say they are ready. The Louisville Metro Police have stated they are taking very seriously the threats that have been made and were based on the violent movie. Many terrorizations have made the rounds on various social media outlets about what is supposedly going to happen in the city starting Friday evening.

The Purge film is centered on a 12 hour period which is selected by the government where there are no laws that are enforced and any type of crime can be committed. One trend going on social media declared the so-called Louisville Purge was going to happen on Friday, Aug. 15. LMPD is reacting to the apparent threat by explaining they are watching everything extremely carefully and are taking each threat received as very serious.

It was reported by one Louisville news agency that fliers and posters had been placed all over the city, and on them were announcements about a Purge crime binge that would go into effect on Friday evening starting at 8:30 p.m. and would last until Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. for all the residents of the Bluegrass state’s largest city. The LMPD sent out a police news release about all the posters and fliers attempting to assure Louisville residents that the police department would be prepared and ready if any type of mass trouble began to occur.

Miley Cyrus Did Not Make a Scene in the Lobby of a New York City Hotel: No "Outburst," No Complaints

Miley Cyrus did not come in like a wrecking ball.

Contrary to a report making the rounds, the Bangerz artist and her entourage did not make a scene in the lobby of New York City's Greenwich Hotel earlier this month and Miley did not lash out at management when they supposedly asked her to put a lid on the party. The report also alleged that staffers were then asked to lodge individual complaints after their famous guest made a fuss.

"There were no complaints," a source assures E! News, and Miley "never had an outburst in the lobby."

The rumored incident had supposedly gone down Aug. 2, following her concert that night in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, at least going by the slew of photos she's posted to Instagram, Miley has continued to be her usual born-entertainer-meets-homebody self these past weeks.

In addition to acquiring piglet Bubba Sue for her menagerie—"dog pig life," she captioned one cute pic of herself snuggling with her pets—she's been posing for selfies with her dancers, the LA Bakers, and last night it appears she hit some sort of show in Chicago, where she has a concert tonight at United Center, featuring masked hot girls in bikinis. You know, a usual Wednesday night.

But for the most part, it looks as though Miley has been saving the real spectacle for the stage.


Harry Styles proposes! (to a fan) and wastes water

The teen pin-up popped the question to the lucky lady who was dressed as a bride at the band's gig in Philadelphia after he picked her out of the sell-out crowd and joked he didn't want her efforts to go to waste.

While the boy band were thanking the audience at the end of their gig, Harry said: "I heard there was a girl here in a wedding dress ... is there a girl here in a wedding dress?

"Now I feel bad letting this go to waste so what's your name? Priya? Priya ... will you marry me? There's been a plot twist! OK .. awesome."

The 20-year-old singer then joked that he and his new love were going to wait until everyone had sent them presents to celebrate their engagement before calling it off.

He added: "We'll take the engagement gifts and then we'll ... OK, awesome. I almost wore my wedding dress. It could've been awkward. But that's a different story."

Miley Cyrus throws a tantrum at hotel staff


Miley Cyrus apparently screamed at hotel management in Philadelphia after being reprimanded for raucous behavior.

According to Life & Style, the 21-year-old screamed, “they should be glad to have me” after she’d “spent so much money”.

A source claimed: “It was like a tornado hit the lobby. Miley and her posse took over, screaming and carrying on so much that management received a number of complaints.

“Led by Miley, someone in the group was smoking pot, and they were swearing loudly and throwing themselves all over the expensive furniture,” the source added.

But once the staff asked the Wrecking Ball singer to keep things down it’s claimed she flipped out, saying, “she’s spent so much money there that they should be glad to have her.”

The alleged incident happened on 2 August after Miley had finished a show on her Bangerz tour.

Skateboarding Pioneer, Jay Adams, Dies at 53

Jay Adams, a skateboarding pioneer and one of the original members of the Zephyr skate team, died in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, early Friday morning, according to his friend and surfing partner Solo Scott.

Adams, 53, had been on an extended surf vacation in Mexico with his wife and friends, including Scott and Allen Sarlo. A full report from the Puerto Escondido medical examiner's office is pending, but Adams had been surfing across the point earlier in the day and came in feeling sick, then began having chest pains around midnight, according to Scott.
"His wife called us over in the middle of the night and we administered CPR until we could get an ambulance, and they kept working on him the whole way but he never revived," Scott told

"The important thing is he went out peacefully in his sleep, during the best surf trip of his life. He'd been down here for three months surfing every day, and he was in great shape and really good spirits. I've never seen him so happy and content and at peace."

3 Awesome Songs By Hilary Duff You Never Knew You Needed To Listen To

By Caleb Stark

On Monday, Hilary Duff released “All About You,” (note op: now on Itunes *cough*) the second single from her upcoming album. As all of my Facebook friends know, I have not been able to shut up about the return of the Lizzie McGuire, and probably should be added to the payroll as her head-promoter. This is something that I have no shame about, because I know that she has released quality content that is worth celebrating. “All About You” sounds a bit like a Taylor Swift reject, which was then mashed up with the Lumineers, and that is not what I would call a bad thing. It has potential to be a summer smash, unlike the previous (yes, I admit it) snore-fest “Chasing the Sun.”

I have (non-ironically) been a Hilary fan since her 2007 album Dignity, which I think is one of the most underrated dance records of the 2000s. Like you, I did not believe that being a Hilary Duff fan was even possible unless you were a 12-year-old girl (or deaf), but Dignity proves that she is able to make a cohesive and mature adult album that is worth loving. Her voice is far from incredible, but you don’t listen to a Hilary Duff song with the hopes of hearing Mariah Carey-eque powerhouse vocals. Instead, you take it for what it is: positive, honest, danceable, and fun. I would like to take this opportunity to convert the non-believers and prepare everyone for the inevitable Duff takeover of 2014, by sharing what I believe are her best tracks, that have the potential to turn you into a fan.

One of the Stars of '10 Things I Hate About You' Started a Religion (or is it a CULT?!?)

Sitting in the heart of Venice Beach, California, is a church one block away from the iconic Gold's Gym and a stone's throw from the new Google offices. The building represents the neighborhood's storied history with religion—it once housed a standard Protestant congregation before becoming a Hare Krishna temple and, later, a new age brand of Christian fundamentalism. But in May, the property gained a new and very peculiar occupant. Hollywood actor Andrew Keegan—best known for his role in the 90s film 10 Things I Hate About You—leased the building to start his own new age temple and spiritual movement called Full Circle. The church now has a growing body of followers, some of whom have dedicated their lives to his mission.

Jesse Eisenberg loved sex jokes as a teen

Jesse Eisenberg used to write sex jokes on napkins when he was 13 years old.

The 'Double' actor - who is dating actress Mia Wasikowska - thought the gags were great at the time but admits he recently found it funny looking back on them because they are so ''misguided''.

He said: ''[I wrote] a lot of jokes, in fact. And they were all sex-based. I've since revisited them, and looking at them I felt like, 'Clearly, this person will never have sex.' They were just totally misguided.''

But the 30-year-old star later realised he wanted to write comedy movies after watching films by Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler.

Speaking about his thoughts after watching some of their movies, he added: ''I could write stuff like this.''

J-Law Makes Mistakes Too: Gaze at this awful 'Buffy' parody from 2007 starring J-Law and Alison Brie


Although not as risible the similarly named Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer films, 2001’s Not Another Teen Movie wasn’t exactly beloved, either. (Its MetaCritic score is a basement-dwelling 32.) Nevertheless, it made money, and years later its writer, Mike Bender, took some of that, uh, magic to a pilot called Not Another High School Show.

Even though its cast featured Alison Brie and a future Oscar winner named Jennifer Lawrence, it didn’t get picked up—and with good reason, judging by this clip Uproxx found. While a parody of Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Brie and Lawrence may sound like it could work, it most certainly does not. Brie and Lawrence are obviously no worse for the wear, but Bender’s last writing credit was the 2008 MTV Movie Awards.
