South of Nowhere Alums Tackle Racism in inkSpot's Flagship Webseries The Unwritten Rules



South of Nowhere may have been short lived but at least some of the cast and crew have clearly remained close. The Unwritten Rules is a web series created by South of Nowhere’s former Post Production Supervisor Kim Williams. Based on a novel she wrote called 40 Hours and an Unwritten Rule:[Complete Title TW]The diary of a Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American Woman, the series stars Aasha Davis as a young woman navigating racial politics in a predominantly white workplace. South of Nowhere fans will recognize Davis as Chelsea Lewis, Clay (and later Glen) Carlin’s girlfriend.

$200M worldwide so far on a $34M budget. Not bad. Divergent had a $85M budget and finished with $288M worldwide. Do you think Maze Runner will make more than that?

Charli XCX on Britney Spears: "Have You Heard her Albums? They're So Intelligent"



Pop was seen as guilty pleasure — something you're supposed to pretend to be embarrassed to like — for so long. But I don't know how it can still have that stigma, because it's now so broad. Do you feel that people still categorize pop as guilty pleasure?
I don't feel embarrassed by any of the music that I like. I think it's all genuinely clever, good music. And when I say that about Britney Spears, some people are like, "What? Are you serious?" Have you heard her albums? They're so intelligent. The way her songs are crafted is really amazing. I think that music is really interesting and clever.

Which era of Britney do you like the best?
Definitely Blackout. It got a bit darker ... "Gimme More" and "Piece of Me" are two of my favorite songs of all time. They're genius. "...Baby One More Time" is amazing, but that sounds like the '90s. "Piece of Me" sounds like it could come out now, or in 10 years' time, and still feel ahead of its time. I love that "…Baby One More Time" video, to be honest; it's amazing. And I also love the recent video, "Work Bitch." When she's standing on the podium with the fake sharks going around her, that's my favorite bit.

Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi win Nobel Peace Prize!!

2014-10-10T093036Z_1007000002_LYNXNPEA990DM_RTROPTP_2_CNEWS-US-NOBEL-PRIZE-PEACE

Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for advocating girls' right to education, and Indian children's right activist Kailash Satyarthi won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

With the prize, Yousafzai, 17, becomes the youngest Nobel Prize winner, eclipsing Australian-born British scientist Lawrence Bragg, who was 25 when he shared the Physics Prize with his father in 1915.

Satyarthi and Yousafzai were picked for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people, and for the right of all children to education, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.

"The Nobel Committee regards it as an important point for a Hindu and a Muslim, an Indian and a Pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism," said Thorbjoern Jagland, the head of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

"It has been calculated that there are 168 million child laborers around the world today," Jagland said. "In 2000 the figure was 78 million higher. The world has come closer to the goal of eliminating child labor."

Excuse you, it's DAME Angelina Jolie now (kind of)



Angelina Jolie, the Oscar-winning actress, has been made an honorary dame by the Queen for her campaigning work fighting sexual violence and for services to UK foreign policy.

During the audience, the Queen presented the actress with the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.

She said at the time: “To receive an honour related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

Cristela Alonzo Makes TV History


The 35-year-old virtually unknown comic is the first Latina to create, produce, write, and star in her own primetime comedy.

“No one else has a deal like this,” said Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. “It is very, very significant and it calls to the fact that she’s an exceptional artist.”

“Cristela” draws on Alonzo's experiences as the youngest of four growing up in San Juan, Texas, a border town. Alonzo spent the first eight years of her life squatting with her siblings and mother in an abandoned diner, where she passed time watching television because she wasn't allowed to play outside in the crime-ridden neighborhood.

On her show, she plays an aspiring lawyer who moves in with her family while she finishes law school, a goal her family does not comprehend the same way Alonzo's real family didn't understand her dream of becoming a performer. Relying largely on her wit and charm, "Cristela" is already being compared to early seasons of “Roseanne” — a sitcom revolving around a working class family with a female lead whose perspective is sharp and fresh.

Marvel Comics announced their next big comics event, a brand new Secret Wars! Set to be written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Esad Ribic, the series will begin in 2015 and last one full year.

The series no doubt is what Hickman’s run on “Avengers” and “New Avengers” has been building up to since launching in 2012 as both series have dealt with parallel worlds to the Marvel Universe, not to mention the current story arc goes by the title “Time Runs Out.” Both of those things seem to play into this new Secret Wars as the promo art shows not only the new female Thor, the Superior Iron Man, and Sam Wilson as Captain America, but Miles Morales the Ultimate Spider-Man, Iron Man 2020, both regular Thor and Captain America, and countless other heroes and villains.

New album confirmed by Björk for 2015!



Björk will return next year with a brand new studio album. The Icelandic songstress made the revelation in a post explaining why she couldn’t attend the London premiere of her film, Biophilia Live.

“We are so sorry, but since Björk is already working on her next album (out in 2015!) she can not come to the ‘Biophilia Live’ premiere at the London Film Festival this week,” the posting reads.

Björk’s previous album, 2011’s Biophilia, was part of an ambitious multimedia collection that encompassed music, apps, museum installations, and live performances, in addition to the aforementioned film. Little is know about her latest project, though Venezuelan producer Alejandro Ghersi, aka Arca, previously announced he’s been tagged to co-produce the LP. Arca previously worked on records for Kanye West and FKA twigs.

They must create a new look from one of the season's losing looks. It doesn't have to be cohesive with their street chic design.

Parameters: The designers will be given cameras and sleek new Lexuses to cruise around the city to find and photograph inspiration. Two days to work. $200 to spend.

Spoiler Filled Details Leaked about Pivotal GOT Season 5 Scenes

Filming of Game of Thrones’ “Walk” dissected, and Littlefinger returns



After some previous unconfirmed reports, it is now quite clear that Littlefinger will return to King’s Landing in Game of Thrones season 5. From a book reader’s perspective, this introduces a whole host of speculation into the fold, as Baelish was still very much in the Vale when he was last seen in A Feast for Crows.

Aidan Gillen was photographed by some fans in Dubrovnik last week. While the context of his scene(s) is unknown, he was very much present in the city specifically for filming as Littlefinger, as evidenced by the picture above.

Bynes recants father sex-abuse accusations with tweet




After Amanda Bynes spent Friday morning tweeting detailed sexual assault accusations of her father on Twitter, the troubled actress has now seemingly recanted those statements with a tweet.

"My dad never did any of those things," she tweeted this afternoon. "The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."

After Bynes sent a barrage of earlier tweets accusing her father of verbal, physical and sexual abuse during her childhood — and saying she would be seeking a restraining order against him — her mother Lynn Bynes' attorney, Tamar Arminak, provided a statement to E! News on her behalf, denying any of the claims.

"I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years," she says. "Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda's mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband's character could be slandered in such a way."

The star had been embroiled with high-profile legal troubles last year, but appeared to be on a path to recovery as she attended rehab, moved in with her parents and was studying fashion design in college. But after a second DUI arrest in late September in Los Angeles, Bynes has seemed to have resumed her erratic behavior.

Reports have been swirling this week over Bynes' alleged behavior in New York, stumbling around and shoplifting, according to TMZ.

Drake's a dick and will literally murder you and your vagina



Drake is under investigation for allegedly threatening an ex -- this time in Arizona -- and it sounds almost exactly like the accusations a Houston stripper made against him.

Shaye G -- an Internet model who was linked to Drake while he was with Rihanna -- says the rapper fired off some angry text messages to her last weekend because she posted photos of expensive purses he bought for her.

In one message, Shaye says Drake warned if he sees her anywhere, she's "getting run up outta there." She felt threatened enough to get her dad involved, who told Drake to back off.

Shaye reported the alleged threats to cops in AZ early this week -- and we've confirmed they are investigating, but have not spoken to Drake yet. We've reached out to his camp, but now word back yet.

It's unclear why Shaye's pics pissed off Drake, but it might be because she posted them as he was catching hell from Houston stripper Jhonni Blaze. As we previously reported ... Blaze also told police she was threatened by people in Drake's camp. Shaye says she decided to go to the cops after seeing our story.

Gotham: Warner 'sorry' for 'blacking up' white stunt woman to pass for black actress



Television bosses have admitted it was a “mistake” to “black up” a white stunt woman so she could pass for a black actress on hit American crime TV show Gotham.

Producers on the Warner Bros television show retracted plans to use a white stunt woman during filming in New York next week after industry website Deadline queried the practise.

On Monday dark make up was reportedly applied to the face of a white stunt woman for a hair and make-up test. Warner Bros. has since said it will hire a black stunt woman instead after being questioned by members of the press.

“A mistake was made this week in casting a stunt woman for a guest star in a particular scene on the show,” Warner Bros. said in a statement. “The situation has been rectified, and we regret the error.”

Blackface” or “painting down” stunt men and women so they can pass for black has been branded “unacceptable” and “improper” by the US Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).

"Industry experts claim that despite the theatrical genre of “blackface”, where a white actor where’s dark make-up, is becoming increasingly rare (it was hugely popular in the 1930s), the practise of using stunt men and women who are white to depict black actors has been going on for decades.

Gotham, which airs on Channel 5 in this country and America’s Fox Network, is a Batman spinoff series developed by Bruno Heller. The series stars Ben McKenzie as Gordon, a member of the Gotham City police force.

The series also star's Jada Pinkett Smith (pictured), mafia mobstress Fish Mooney.

I wonder how Jada felt about this cos she is "new black". Since it is such an accepted practise, I'm surprised this is the show that brought the issue to the forefront.

The Jim Henson Company Is Working On A Labyrinth Sequel!



Tucked away in a Variety article about Billy Crystal joining the Henson Company's production of Which Witch? — which, you know, whatever — comes the much more interesting news that a sequel to 1986's Labyrinth is in the works (along with the previously rumored Dark Crystal 2 and Fraggle Rock movies). The quote in question is below:

"It’s [The Jim Henson Co.] also working on a quartet of legacy titles in the Henson library — a “Fraggle Rock” movie that’s been in development at New Regency; a sequel to 1982’s “The Dark Crystal”; a sequel to 1986’s “Labyrinth”; and a movie based on the Emmet Otter character."

Chris Brown's tattoo artist shot dead in broad daylight



A disrespectful remark caused the fist fight that led to the fatal shooting of famed LA tattoo artist Trigz in Los Angeles, claims the manager of the store where the lethal brawl broke out.

According to the manager, Trigz, whose real name is Michael Christopher Pebley, was minding his own business in the Black Derby Smoke Shop on Thursday afternoon when an apparent stranger upset him with a pointed remark leaving the store.

Pebley, who was sitting talking to the store owner, was angered and approached the man, "getting in his face," which sparked a 30-second fight inside, which eventually spilled onto the sidewalk and ended with Pebley being fatally shot outside the neighboring Tattoo & Body Piercing parlor.

"The suspect was already shopping inside when Pebley walked in and sat down to talk to the owner," said manager James Mayen, who has also watched the security footage of the fight from Thursday. "The suspect is making his way out of the store when he turns to Pebley and says something, which makes Pebley leave his chair and walk straight over to him.

"He gets in his face and the two begin arguing, which quickly descends into a huge fight inside, which then spills outside."

THE SNAPPENING --- 200,000 nude photos to leak on Sunday?



Hundreds of thousands of nude Snapchat photos and videos will be published in a searchable dataset on October 12, a hacker on the web community 4chan has announced, although questions remain over the claim’s legitimacy.

In what 4chan users have dubbed "The Snappening", 200,000 self-destructing pictures, along with user IDs, were allegedly accessed earlier this week via the Snapsave Android app which allows users to store their pictures.


Business Insider has said that figure is closer to 100,000, and that it was in fact SnapSaved, the now defunct web client for Snapchat, that was compromised.

The collection of images was posted on viralpop.com, a phoney competition website, and though that website was shut down soon after, thousands had already downloaded the database.

Iggy Azalea confirms SNL Performance, New Single with MØ



Mother Theresa of the Music Industry Iggy Azalea reveals her next single -- and the high-profile show on which she will first perform the song.

During the summer of “Fancy,” Azalea repeatedly beat Billboard to the punch in revealing her song’s position on Billboard’s own Hot 100 chart. It should therefore come as no surprise that she beat NBC to the punch in announcing an appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

While the rapper did not confirm the date or host associated with her performance, she did reveal one of the songs she will perform: new single “Beg for It.”




Of particular note is the fact that Azalea identifies MØ as the featured artist on the official recording.  “A lot of you may not know [MØ], but she’s super cool. I love her voice and her eyebrows,” says Azalea of her latest collaboration partner.
