Cops with character



A funny thing happened on the way to casting for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the ensemble sitcom about a New York City police station. Two Latina actresses, Melissa Fumero andStephanie Beatriz, auditioned for the roles of detectives — and the characters weren't even Latina.

Fumero, the daughter of Cuban immigrants, read for the part of an overachieving, by-the-book cop. As for Beatriz, who was born in Argentina to a Colombian father and a Bolivian-Brazilian mother, all she knew about her character was the description "tough, smart and scary as hell."

Biggest Loser' Star -- Slams 1,000 Cal Breakfast -- Before Fat-Sucking Sesh

gfv

Ajay Rochester -- who hosted Australia's version of "The Biggest Loser" -- just had 1.5 Liters of fat sucked out of her body ... but first, she bellied up to a 1,000 calorie breakfast of bacon, eggs and hash browns.

Ajay hit up Dr. Aaron Rollins Friday at Elite Body Sculpture in Bev Hills, and got something called an Airsculpt Laser Lipo -- a fancy name for precision fat sucking. We're told Ajay was 100% awake for the procedure -- no needles, no cutting, no stitches -- while the doc targeted her chin and arms.

Sam Smith Says Unrequited Love For A Straight Man Inspired His Hit Album

4-sam-smith-exclusive-shoot-650-360x450

It’s really tough to explain. But no, he’s not gay. Nothing ever happened between us. I know he loved me too, but not in that way. When I wrote the record I was just really heartbroken — all I wanted to do was go to the studio and write about this guy who I fell in love with. I feel like love is a massive spectrum. But some people are so bothered about boxes, like the way they look and the way they’ve been brought up, that they don’t let themselves go to fall in love with other people. I think that’s what happened. He had his guard up a lot… He knows. I’ve told him everything and our relationship is great now,’ he said. ‘But he’s very wary of how he acts around me … I feel nothing towards him now. I’ll always love him, but I’m not in love with him any more.”

Britney Spears - Ex-Boyfriend Cheated with a Porn Star

image
Britney Spears didn't dump David Lucado for hooking up with any ol' regular girl next door -- TMZ has learned the other woman in question is a hardcore porn star.

Cali Lee is a 5 foot, 96 pound Latina who's been in the biz since 2009. She's famous for classics like:

-- "Itty Bitty Boobies"
-- "8th Street Latinas Vol. 20"
-- "Fresh Outta High School 14"

Cali is kind of a unicorn in the industry -- she's been in less than 20 scenes. Although, one of 'em was with legendary swordsman Ron Jeremy. As for how David and Cali crossed paths -- we're told they met at a bar near Britney's house.

As we previously reported ... Britney kicked David to the curb after he was videotaped hooking up with Cali in August. Britney's dad bought the vid to keep it under wraps. Bottom line ... there's now a direct link between Britney Spears and Ron Jeremy.

Both grooms wore custom Tom Ford tuxedos. Their friend and mentor, How I Met Your Mother producer and director Pam Fryman, officiated the ceremony.

And talk about a wedding singer—Elton John performed at the reception!

"We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family," a rep for NPH said.

Flying Lotus & Kendrick Lamar release the best song of the year "Never Catch Me"Flying Lotus'



Flying Lotus' collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, "Never Catch Me," which will appear on the electronic music experimenter's upcoming fifth LP, You're Dead!, has leaked online. The track features buoyantly jazzy, occasionally Zappa-esque production as Lotus and Lamar rap about how far ahead of the curve they are – a point they make by reciting their verses at warp speed.


Flying Lotus recently told Rolling Stone that the collaboration came about naturally, with Lamar recording his verses at Lotus' house. "The funny part is, though, that he wanted to keep that shit for his album," he said. "When I first sent him the track, he was trying to convince me to give it to him. Like, 'Nah, man, I need that.'"

Lotus said that he and Lamar had a "special vibe between [their] chemistry" and that their friendship dated back years. The producer felt "shitty" that he wasn't included on Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city record from 2012 but that they became even closer after it came out. "He talked about me contributing to his new album, and I was down with that. I sent him a bunch of stuff and then I asked if he'd do something for my album, and he was super into the concept of my record and really wanted to be part of it. I was just flattered."

Flying Lotus originally conceived You're Dead! as a strictly jazz affair, but after working on it for two years, he made an album that also featured prog-rock time signatures and rapping. In addition to Lamar, jazz legend Herbie Hancock also makes an appearance on the record. The album comes out October 7th.

Seth Rogen: Ray Rice should be banned for life

Seth Rogen is GOING OFF over the Ray Rice elevator video -- saying the running back is a "piece of garbage" who should be banned from the NFL for life.

Rogen is responding to the footage we posted on TMZ Sports -- showing the NFL running back KNOCKING OUT his then-fiancee with a brutal left hand to her face.

Rogen went to Twitter and blasted Rice -- and the NFL.

"I don't know much about football, but I know that Ray Rice is a piece of garbage who shouldn't be allowed to play it professionally anymore."

Rogen then tweeted at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell -- who only suspended Rice 2 games for the attack -- saying, "@nflcommish your punishment for beating a woman is less than for smoking weed. Get your head out of your f**king ass."

George Clooney Confirms Italy Wedding To Amal Alamuddin In The Next Two Weeks

We always just kind of assumed that George Clooney would remain a bachelor forever, which made his engagement to the stunning Amal Alamuddin earlier this year all the more shocking.

Now the notoriously private actor has shown off his beautiful bride-to-be as they made their red carpet debut last night.

Looking the picture of a perfect couple, George and Amal turned heads as they attended elite charity event Celebrity Fight Night in Italy, which marks their first public appearance together.

Not only did they step out looking beautiful, the 53-year-old actor also confirmed that the two will be wed in Venice at some stage over the next two weeks.

Taylor Swift Makes Album Promotion an Art in Her Debut 'Shake It Off' Week!

taylor-swift-shake-it-off-video-2014-billboard-650
What does it take to push an album or song to the top of the charts? Ask Taylor
Swift, who spent the last month tirelessly promoting her debut pop album, 1989,
and pushing its lead single "Shake It Off" into the national pop-culture
conversation.

Hard work pays off. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and has shattered
records left and right, and it's all but guaranteed that 1989 will debut at the
top of the Billboard 200 when it's released on Oct. 27. To secure those numbers,
Swift rolled out an impressive, borderline-exhaustive album campaign that
included Instagram teasers, appearances on late night talk shows, skywriting
planes, and a Yahoo! live stream event on the top of the Empire State Building
on Aug. 18. The album was made available for pre-order on her website
immediately following the live stream, but the site crashed within minutes.

In the two weeks since, she has performed at the VMA's, shared music video
outtake videos via YouTube (surely an effort to keep fans interested), and
announced that she'll join The Voice as a mentor this fall. There are rumors
circulating that she may come on as a judge, but we'll let you know when that's
confirmed.

Penny Dreadful News Post

patti_lupone_a_l

Patti Lupone is heading to Showtime. The Broadway actress and TV fixture, who most recently had recurring gigs on American Horror Story and Girls, will appear in the upcoming season of Penny Dreadful.

Thus far only booked as a guest star, her addition marks one of several to the sophomore horror-drama. Actors Douglas Hodge, Sarah Greene and Jonny Beauchamp have also been added to in guest roles to the cast.

Lupone will play a mysterious character from Vanessa's (Eva Green) past. The Tony and Emmy winner is clearly invested in TV at the moment. She recently starred in Bruce Eric Kaplan's HBO comedy pilot alongside Sarah Silverman and Topher Grace, on which the network ultimately passed.

Penny Dreadful earned a bigger order for its sophomore season, getting 10 episodes after averaging 4.8 million weekly viewers across platforms.

Denzel Washington is NOT ready to retire!

Equalizer-jmd-060914
Don't mess with Denzel Washington. The 59-year-old Oscar winner may be the butt of many old man jokes in his new action thriller The Equalizer, but he's still got it.

"It's alright, it's alright," Washington says about the zingers. I caught up with Washington at the Toronto International Film Festival where he was promoting the Antoine Fuqua-directed film. Washington plays a retired deadly CIA operative who brings himself out of retirement to help save a teen (Chloe Grace Moretz) forced into prostitution by the Russian mafia. Washington is so not worried about aging in Hollywood.

"Look, Clint Eastwood is 80-something, I think, and he's still directing," he said. "We don't have to retire. Gene Hackman retired when he was about 80. James Earl Jones is headed back to Broadway. He's gotta be closing in on 80, I guess. Morgan Freeman, too," Washington continued. "So you don't have to. No, it's actually good. I'm in the right profession." And then he began touching his knee. Washington laughed, "I started rubbing my knee. That is interesting. I started rubbing my knee! I can jump—I just can't come down. It's true, but that can happen at 20, 30."

In other words, it's also time for Washington to play James Bond! He actually started an impromptu campaign to play 007 when he was asked about taking on the iconic role by a Reddit user during an AMA on Friday. "The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes, I would! Who's doing James Bond now...Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio!" he replied to user BigTalk45. "We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!"

During our chat at TIFF, Washington also talked about his son John David Washington's leap into acting. He has his first major role coming up as The Rock's co-star in HBO's Ballers. "When he started talking about becoming an actor, he said, 'Dad, your shadow's so big,'" Denzel said. "I said, 'You ever heard of Kirk Douglas?' and he said, 'No.' I said, 'You've heard of Michael Douglas?' He then said, 'Of course.' I said, 'Alright then, don't worry about any shadow. Google Kirk Douglas and then come back and we'll talk about shadows.'"

"FURY" - New International Trailer



The new international trailer for Brad Pitt’s Second World War film Fury has arrived.

The film stars Brad Pitt as army sergeant Wardaddy who heads up an American tank unit in Germany, 1945, as the end of the war approaches. Wardaddy and the remainder of his unit, played by Shia LaBeouf, Jason Isaacs, Logan Lerman, The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña, take on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

Fury is written and directed by David Ayer, who was also responsible for the Oscar-winning Training Day and the acclaimed thriller End of Watch.

Speaking to People magazine, Ayer said: "I set out to make the ultimate tank movie". This included the use of a real Second World War tank in the film - the last working Tiger tank was loaned to the production by the Tank Museum in Dorset during shooting, which took place in Shirburn, Oxfordshire.

Fury was recently announced as the closing film at the London Film Festival 2014, in a screening on October 19 that will be attended by both Pitt and Ayer.

Fury is released in the US on October 17, and in the UK on October 24.

rich white boy gets off again



An assault charge against pop star Justin Bieber has been withdrawn in connection with an incident involving a Toronto limousine driver.

The charge stemmed from an early morning incident on Dec. 30, when Bieber and five other people were picked up by a limousine from a Toronto nightclub.

Bieber was charged with one count of assault after police alleged one of the passengers hit the limousine driver during an
altercation.

It is one of a series of legal troubles faced by the 20-year-old singer:

Bieber was arrested in Florida in January after what police alleged was an illegal street race involving the pop star and his friend.

In August, Bieber pleaded guilty to charges of careless driving and resisting arrest in that case and in a plea bargain was sentenced to an anger management course, a $500 fine and a $50,000 charitable contribution.

On Aug. 29, Bieber was arrested and charged with dangerous driving and assault following a collision between a minivan and an ATV in a rural area northeast of Bieber's hometown of Stratford, Ont.

The driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan "engaged in a physical altercation," according to police. Bieber is to appear in court on those charges on Sept. 29.

Michael C. Hall to take over title role in ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ on Broadway



A TV murderer is stepping into a killer rock-musical role — and outrageously to-die-for wigs — on Broadway.

Michael C. Hall will take over as the transgender title character in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Oct. 16, producers of the Tony Award-winning musical revival announced Monday.

The likable, edgy Hall, with his Broadway-tested pipes, will play the part through Jan. 4 at the Belasco Theatre.
Hall assumes the glitter-bedazzled baton from Andrew Rannells (formerly of “The Book of Mormon” and “Girls”), whose final bow is Oct. 12. Rannells replaced Neil Patrick Harris on Aug. 17 after the “How I Met You Mother” star’s Tony-winning turn.

Hall is best known for the cable series “Six Feet Under,” set in a funeral home, and “Dexter,” about a serial killer. But he has stage experience on and off Broadway.

Last season he played a suburban husband in the elliptical drama “The Realistic Joneses” on Broadway. In 1999, he took over as the Emcee in “Cabaret.” He made his Broadway debut in 1996 as an understudy in “Skylight.”

I saw NPH and Andrew in the show and they were both fantastic. I've been patiently awaiting Michael's return to musical theater and I'm crossing my fingers I get to see this with him.

Tori Spelling/Jennie Garth show CANCELLED ....

rs_560x415-140908102240-560.MG-jmd-070914
It's not a good day to be Tori Spelling or Jennie Garth. Looks like the former Beverly Hills, 90201 costars won't be getting a second season for their ABC Family comedy Mystery Girls as the cable network has reportedly canceled the freshman buddy detective comedy that follows Holly (Spelling) and Charlie (Garth), former stars of the fictional 1990s TV detective series Mystery Girls who reunite to solve actual mysteries.

According to TVLine, the network won't be bringing Mystery Girls back for a sophomore season. However, ABC Family tells E! News that no official decision has been made yet. So there's still hope for the few of you that were watching! While Beverly Hills, 90210 fans were excited to see Garth and Spelling back on TV together again for a new show, Mystery Girls premiered and bowed to less-than-desirable ratings. The Aug. 27 season (and now series?) finale drew just a bit more than 500K viewers and a .024 demo rating.

Mystery Girls also starred Miguel Pinzon as Nick Diaz, an enthusiastic Mystery Girls super fan who persuades Holly and Charlie to hire him as their assistant, Adam Mayfield as Charlie's husband, and Ryan McPartlin as Police Detective Dwayne Freeman.

Spelling and Garth were able to get one of their former 90210 costars to guest star on the show, and were hoping that Shannen Doherty would eventually make an appearance. "We'd like to have Shannen," Garth said on Sirius XM's Just Jenny just a few weeks ago, and Spelling added, "The original threesome. Me, Jen and Shannen, so that's how it should be on this show."

"If Sims 4 isn't successful, there won't be a Sims 5."



The Sims 4 has been out for less than a week and Maxis has made it clear they’re entirely focused on the success of The Sims 4, before even thinking about the next game. On The Sims official forums, producer Grant Rodiek quelled suggestions for the next Sims game from fans with some definitive statements.

“We're not working on Sims 5. We're not thinking about Sims 5. If Sims 4 isn't successful, there won't be a Sims 5.”

The Sims 4 released only a few days ago; our Steve is going to play it until his “eyes fall out”. While some passionate fans were giving suggestions to what could be added or changed in the next game, producer Grant Rodiek stepped in to remind them not to get ahead of themselves. “We're not working on Sims 5. We're not thinking about Sims 5. If Sims 4 isn't successful, there won't be a Sims 5.” said Rodiek.

When later challenged by fans, Rodiek clarified that it’s “not all or nothing”, but that “something has to pay for 5”. Seems like how game development usually works to me, but it's strange to think of a world without The Sims.

Is The Sims safe for now, or could this be the end of the iconic life simulator as we know it?

"Candidly Nicole" Renewed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

VH1 is keeping Nicole Richie around for another season.

The Viacom-owned cable network has picked up unscripted entry Candidly Nicole for a second season, VH1 announced Monday.

The series centers on Richie in an expanded version of her web series and follows her daily adventures as she offers insight into her decisions on style, relationships and her work life.

The series, which premiered its first of eight episodes in July to lackluster returns, has averaged about 531,000 total viewers — a far cry from VH1's African-American-themed unscripted series Basketball Wives, Love & Hip Hop and the latter's Atlanta spinoff.

Candidly Nicole, produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder,will return for a second season in spring/summer 2015.

Meanwhile, a decision on LeAnn & Eddie has not yet been announced.

Something I Never Thought Would Happen: Marin Cilic is a Grand Slam Champion



Marin Cilic defeated Kei Nishikori, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3, at the United States Open on Monday night to win his first Grand Slam title.

A showcase for the next generation in men’s tennis, the match was the first Grand Slam final since the 2005 Australian Open that did not include Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray.

The 14th-seeded Cilic, who defeated No. 6 Tomas Berdych and No. 2 Roger Federer on his way to the final, is the lowest seed to win the U.S. Open since Pete Sampras won the 2002 tournament as the No. 17 seed.

With Cilic facing the 10th-seeded Nishikori, this was the first time since Patrick Rafter defeated Greg Rusedski in 1997 that the U.S. Open final featured two players outside the top 10 seeds and two players making their Grand Slam final debuts.

Cilic, 25, was a top-10 player for several weeks in 2010 after reaching the semifinals at the Australian Open, but had not been able to return to those heights.

Nishikori, a 24-year-old from Japan, was attempting to become the first man from Asia to win a Grand Slam singles title. Instead Cilic is the second Croatian man to win a major singles championship: His coach, Goran Ivanisevic, won Wimbledon in 2001.

Cilic hired Ivanisevic last year while serving a four-month doping suspension for ingesting a banned stimulant. Ivanisevic has rejuvenated the 6-foot-6 Cilic’s game by emphasizing powerful serving

‘Walley World’ roller coaster catches fire, collapses


VALENCIA, Calif. — An out-of-control fire seriously damaged the iconic Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Southern California on Monday afternoon.

Flames charred a portion of the wooden roller coaster, which is closed for improvements, KTLA reported. Some of the track collapsed, tumbling to the ground far below.

Photos posted to Twitter showed a column of smoke rising from a high point on the ride.

Several fire engines were on scene and firefighters were dousing the flames.

The coaster ceased operating in mid-August after 36 years. It is set to be replaced by a hybrid ride called “Twisted Colossus.”
The old version of the popular ride dropped 100 feet and reached speeds of up to 60 mph.

In a statement, Six Flags said that the “the top of the lift hill” had caught fire during a day when the park was closed.

“There are no injuries and the fire is contained,” Six Flags stated. “Colossus is currently undergoing a transformation and has been closed since August 17.”

Taylor Swift's New Song "Bad Blood" Reportedly Disses Katy Perry



Taylor Swift isn't only unleashing her kickass powers on her ex-boyfriends when it comes to her upcoming, new album. The singer reportedly wrote an entire diss track on the album slamming fellow pop singer Katy Perry.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor revealed that her new song called "Bad Blood" isn't about an ex, but the years of abuse from another unnamed woman in the business. While everyone can speculate who it's about, we're pretty sure the track is about Katy. Why?

Well, in the interview, Tay said that she has been hanging on the fence about whether or not this girl is a real friend for awhile. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"

She continued, "[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business...She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational, you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."

Last year three of Taylor's backup dancers left during her Red tour to dance for Katy's world tour instead. Taylor got back at her for that during the "Roar" plagarism drama days by inviting Sara Bareilles to sing "Brave" on stage with her. Of course, she called the song "an original" during their performance.

Ariana Grande cancels Australian media photo shoots after issuing long list of demands



Pocket rocket popette Ariana Grande (this Pulitzer worthy intro tho) has an extra-large list of diva demands for her Australian chatfest.

And most of them are don’ts rather than dos, resulting in the abrupt cancellation of Grande’s photo shoots today.

All media who were granted an audience with the 21-year-old singer were instructed to steer clear of delicate topics during her promotional visit this week.

DON’T ask questions about:
(1) Relationships/Dating/Ex-boyfriends
(2) Mariah Carey
(3) Sam & Cat/Jennette McCurdy
(4) Working/collaborating with Justin Bieber
(5) Her grandfather passing away

Ringo Starr displeased British Islamic State torturers called ‘The Beatles’

ringo

The three British Islamic State militants responsible for guarding foreign hostages are nicknamed “The Beatles” by captives because of their recognizable accents.

Ringo Starr would prefer they weren’t.

The European jihadists are reportedly the most merciless with their hostages. One source told NBC News, “Whenever the Beatles showed up, there was some kind of physical beating or torture.” The British murderer of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff is named “John,” which some reports indicate is what fellow militants call him, while others suggest it’s a nod to John Lennon. (Yes, the same Lennon who sang, “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance.”)

Starr, the drummer of the iconic band, told British media that equating the brutal militants to the peace-promoting Fab Four was “bull—-.”

“What they are doing out there is against everything The Beatles stood for,” Starr said. But the musician acknowledged that there’s nothing he can do about it.

Meanwhile, a former Islamic State, also known as ISIS, member told CNN this week that using a British man to carry out the executions of Foley and Sotloff was likely a deliberate effort by the insurgents to “project the image that a European, or a Western person, executed an American so that they can showcase their Western members and appeal to others outside Syria and make them feel that they belong to the same cause.”

'Champagne Supernovas' Explores the Outrageous '90s Fashion World



"Three names epitomized the fashion world in the ’90s – designers Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen, and their muse, Kate Moss. The trio are the focus of New York Post writer and editor Maureen Callahan’s new book Champagne Supernovas. This dishy ride through the 1990s fashion world takes readers behind the catwalk, when the ‘heroin chic’ look was mainstream, Jacobs was designing his now famous ‘Grunge’ collection, and the tortured McQueen was breaking rules with his outrageous runway shows."

Fashion Website Sues Lindsay Lohan

efwq4c2qvldlq2lq
ACTRESS Lindsay Lohan is being sued by a former business associate over a fashion e-commerce idea. Lohan, along with her brother Michael, are alleged to have made an agreement with tech entrepreneur Fima Potik to collaborate on his startup, Spotted Friend, before reportedly launching a similar platform without him.

The actress, her younger brother Michael Jr, and business partner Christopher Roth have been hit with a cease-and-desist letter from Potik following the launch of Vigme - which allows users to shop celebrities' virtual closets, while the celebrity takes a cut of the proceeds. Potik asserts that this business model is identical to his company, Spotted Friend, which Lohan tweeted about in 2013.

"Prior to their involvement in Vigme, [the Lohans and Roth] were members of Spotted Friend LLC, a social commerce start-up that was founded by Fima Potik in 2013," Potik's lawyers told Page Six. "It is Mr Potik - not the Lohans - who created and developed the idea for a mobile application that allows users to access celebrities' and friends' 'virtual closets' and to directly purchase fashion items and accessories from these 'virtual closets.' In 2014, after being members of the company for over a year, without any warning, the Lohans and Mr Roth launched a competing company and improperly took proprietary information and intellectual property from Spotted Friend to start the new business."

But Lohan's legal representatives were unmoved: "Allegations of any impropriety in Lindsay Lohan's business relationship concerning this website are inaccurate and clearly designed to capitalise on her worldwide recognition as a fashion icon."

Jennifer Garner on iCloud hacking, parenting and paparazzi



iCloud hacking: "It's an invasion. It's violent. It's a violent abuse of women. They're not just doing it to any women. These women know when they're walking down the streets that so many people have seen them in this way. It just makes me want to hurt somebody."

On being more invested in the fate of her husband's movies: "Absolutely. I don't even know what to say, other than what he does when he directs something, it's so personal to our family. It's such a commitment for our family. As invested as I am in this film (Men, Woman and Children), it doesn't compare to a two to three year investment of him directing, writing and starring in something."

Parenting: "
Sometimes as a parent, it's when you're trying the hardest; it's when you're trying to do the most on their behalf that you're fucking up the most. And so, every day is just an opportunity to get it wrong as a mom. And it's so painful when you realize you did. Sometimes you realize that night; sometimes you realize a week later. Sometimes you look back and you think, oh my gosh, I drove that poor kid crazy trying to help. But every day is a chance to start again as a parent too.

Attending parenting classes: "You go to all these parenting classes, especially in LA. There are so many people who are really helpful and so you take advantage of it. This one teacher said to me... there are so few things that stick in my feeble brain, but one of them is: "You prepare your child for the road, not the road for your child." So if your kid is having a problem at school, you don't go to the teacher saying, "This has got to change." You actually go to your kid and have the kid learn to advocate for themselves, or whatever."

7 (4) Reasons Why Netflix's BoJack Horseman Is the Funniest Show of the Fall



Netflix has done it again.

While the Broadcast Sitcom Assembly Line has generated shows ranging from the lukewarm (A to Z) to the downright languid (Mulaney), Netflix has trotted out (heh) BoJack Horseman, the rare show whose execution lives up to its ambition.

In this fall's stale comedy landscape, BoJack is like a breath of fresh air — and it's clear that Netflix has faith in its latest project, which was renewed four days after it premiered last month. The cartoon's just-go-with-it premise follows the title character (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up former equine star of the '90s hit sitcom "Horsin' Around" who's trying to write his memoir. The show really finds its footing by Episode 3, which skewers former child stars-turned-sexpots via a storyline about Sarah Lynn (voiced by Kristen Schaal), a young woman who played BoJack's adopted daughter on "Horsin' Around" and now bears more than a passing resemblance to Miley Cyrus. It's hilarious, but also dark and oddly resonant at times.

It's clear that, after the success of shows like Orange Is the New Black, Netflix has hit upon a winning formula with shows that don't fit neatly into one category. So why is BoJack Horseman funnier than any of the network sitcoms airing this fall? Here are seven four reasons:

Nick Jonas Takes His Shirt Off; 4 Pics From 'Kingdom'

“I’m with my girl and [some other guys are] looking at her and I was like, I’ve just been training for three months how to be a real fighter for a TV show and I could hurt you now,” he recently told MTV News. “It was a moment when I was like, I’ve got to write about that because the fact that I got so passionate about it so quickly means that there is a song there.”

The solo star just released his single “Jealous” off his upcoming self-titled album (due out November 11) and the singer is embracing his R&B influences, much like he did with the preceding track, “Chains.” But this time he’s bringing a funkier upbeat sound that is refreshing and much different than anything we’ve heard from the youngest Jonas brother.

Meanwhile, Nick has been promoting his new single by showing off his body.

Hilary Duff didnt impress the critics with her performance on the Australian Idol

577627_900

Hilary Duff made a triumphant return to the stage on tonight’s episode of the Australian X Factor to perform the single that Taylor Swift should’ve released, “All About You.”

Duff, who hasn’t performed in seven years, was definitely back in form despite her lengthy absence from the stage. And when I say back in form, I mean that she’s back to self-consciously shuffling around the place while trying to mime or battle a loud backing track. Hil didn’t even bother upgrading her outfit from the good ol’ days, choosing instead to wear vintage Stuff by Hilary Duff prototypes from one of Target’s abandoned sweat shops.

The whole thing was very post-breakdown Britney plus “Hoedown Throwdown” divided by Jessica Simpson’s “Push Your Tush.”

In other words: the most fucking iconic flawless performance of the century.

Ariana Grande also performed on the show, but I’m not posting that trash because a legendary superstar of Hilary’s caliber shouldn’t have to share the same stage with the bitch that Single White Female’d Mariah Carey. Also, her dancing is almost worse than Hilary’s, which is not something you wanna see.
