JK Rowling is not working on a new 'romantic novel' (despite what the Daily Mail reports)


JKR wrote on Twitter: "There's a story in today’s Mail that I was in a London bar on Monday ‘celebrating’ handing in a ‘romantic novel’ to my publishers..."

"1) I haven’t handed in ANY kind of novel to my publishers. I’m only half way through my current book. 2) It isn't a ‘romantic’ novel."
"Back to work now. See you when I've finished something X"

dc: a woman director is being sought out for wonder woman movie




Apparently, Warner Bros. wants to make a splash. With the announcement of their roster of films, WB is purportedly seeking a female director for their Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot. The movie isn't scheduled to be released until June 23, 2017, which gives them plenty of time to seek out a director.

Too bad they can't dump Gal Gadot.

50 Cent Will Headline A LGBT Youth Benefit Center Concert

10-24-2014 9-30-17 AM

The list of performers for Cyndi Lauper's Home For the Holidays event have been announced. Some of the performers include Salt-n-Pepa, Natalie Maines, Sufjan Stevens and 50 Cent will perform at this years show. Curtis Jackson, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, has a long history of fending off rumors about his sexuality in addition to lashing out at the gay community.

In 2010, Jackson suggested that men who do not perform oral sex on women should kill themselves, a message that extremely bad considering that 19 year-old Tyler Clementi had recently killed himself after being publicly outed as gay.

In an interview with Playboy back in 2004, Jackson said:

"I ain't into fa**ots. I don't like gay people around me, because I'm not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I'm not prejudiced. I just don't go with gay people and kick it - we don't have that much in common. I'd rather hang out with a straight dude. But women who like women, that's cool."

Another fun tweet from 2010: "Perez Hilton calld me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his but still made me feel better."

In a 2013 interview with Vibe, he gave us this gem:
"We need organizations for straight men in the case you’ve been on the elevator and somebody decides they want to grab your little buns".


Home For the Holidays will take place on December 6th.

sarah-michelle-gellar-selma-blair-lg

Sarah Michelle Gellar revealed her favorite on-screen kiss in a recent Australian interview. She admitted in a radio interview that her favorite kiss was with Selma Blair in the 1999 film Cruel Intentions. The film came out almost 15 years ago.

"That's easy!" she exclaimed to hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday, Oct. 23, confirming that Blair's smooch was the best. Gellar, 37, also noted that the former costars have kept in touch over the years, and "fun, good girl" Blair is always "up for a good time."

The makeout session became the most popular scene in the entire movie, it secured their win for Best Kiss at the 2000 MTV Movie Awards.

"My mother's going to be so proud right now," Gellar said in the pair's acceptance speech, with future-hubby Freddie Prinze Jr. in the audience. "I just want to thank Selma for my most rewarding on-screen kiss ever." Blair added: "I guess I should just thank Sarah for all those hours of practice."

Just a shameless excuse to post about SMG and Cruel Intentions. Favorite 90's film? Fav Film Kiss?

ONTD Original: 10 latino actors that should join the MCU & DCCU

Since the premiere of the first X-Men movie fourteen years ago, superheroe movies, as a film genre/trend, have become really popular, specially with the younger audience, and it looks like it's here to stay for good... or until they run out of ideas.

However, the audience has been complaining lately about the lack of diversity and representation in both the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes, which is why we present to you this list featuring ten latino actors that should suit up in the future.

Édgar Ramírez as Doctor Strange

Dr. Stephen Strange was once a gifted but egotistical surgeon who sought out the Ancient One to heal his hands after they were wounded in a car accident. Instead, the Ancient One trained him to become Master of the Mystic Arts and the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth.

Bill Murray shares his opinions on Tinder


Bill Murray was on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night talking about technology and Tinder in particular.

Murray had said he had heard of Tinder due to its use at this year's Winter Olympics, saying, "Yeah I know about Tinder. It became very popular at the Olympics. Because it was like...Hi I'm very fit and I'm an Olympic athlete. Ok. If that's what we all are, then that's ok. I think that it could be amusing, but I can't imagine doing it particularly. I feel like I've lived that life, but I can't live that life anymore."

Murray insists that he doesn't need an app to get some, though.


"I can just sort of say, Hey, you with the camera," he yelled into the crowd. "Come here. Damn it, I'm coming your way."


Murray doesn't have an agent or publicist, obviously doesn't know much about technology, and can only be reached by phone.  He has a new movie or something coming out soon called St. Vincent.

School Shooting in Seattle Area Leaves 2 Dead, Including Shooter




Terror seized a school campus this morning when at 10:45 AM, a lone gunman opened fire at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington State, shooting 5 students and killing 1 before turning the gun on himself. Of the 4 injured students, 3 are in critical condition.

Students initially believed the incident to be a fire drill until teachers herded students into classrooms due to the gunfire. The shooting began in the cafeteria. According to witnesses, the shooter was allegedly angry that a girl wouldn't go out with him. The girl in question was among those shot. However, the motive has not been officially confirmed. The scene was "pandemonium", according to The Seattle Times, as students scrambled to doors and over fences to escape.

The gunman, who was a student at the school, has not had his identity released at this time.

STREAM Leighton Meester's debut LP HEARTSTRINGS in full!

MOD: I did rephrase my dear mods, but should I be flattered you thought I didn't? lol



Elle.com is exclusively streaming Leighton Meester's debut album. Speaking with the magazine, Meester reflects on the bumps along that way before she perfected a sound that's completely hers.

On her former record label and working with the likes of Robin Thicke, Lil Wayne and Clinton Sparks: "At every turn I wasn’t one-hundred percent convinced that I was happy doing that. That music is fun for certain times, but It didn’t feel right to me."

On Heartstrings: "It really represents me. It’s sensitive, it’s sort of guarded but also open and vulnerable and triumphant [...] You have a life outside of work—barely, but it’s there for me—so there’s plenty of material and inspiration [for my music]. Family, friends, loved ones, relationships, and everything that is happening in real life is a good source of inspiration for anybody who is writing music."

She just wants everyone to enjoy the ride with her: "Anybody who has any clue who I am or my name or what I’ve done I’m so happy to bring them over to this and get them to listen to this record. And for people who don’t have any clue about me, that’s great too. Welcome."

Full article and STREAM at the SOURCE!

Heartstrings will be available Oct. 28 (which you can preorder on itunes!) and she'll also be playing at the Troubadour in Los Angeles the same night!

I know everyone's fawning over Taylor Swift right now but you can never have enough beautiful love songs by beautiful female artists! Give Leighton some love, too!

The Most Fucked Up Haunted House Has a Waiting List of 24k People






Long story short:

-- McKamey Manor in San Diego, California is a horror house, not a haunted house and they're into some fucked up shit.
-- The "event" lasts four to seven hours and only two people can go a day and they have to do it alone.
-- People actually want to be terrorized for seven fucking hours because McKM has a waiting list of 24,000 people.
-- Everyone has to sign a waiver and be heath checked so you know this isn't smart.
-- Again, people actually want to get their asses beaten (seriously), eat rotten eggs, be drenched with (fake) blood and terrorized for entertainment.

The event has gotten criticism because of the apparently brutality and abuse delivered and some questioned how participants can say the "safe word" if their mouths are taped. The event's mouthpiece responded on YouTube:

At a party in Beverly Hills, O’Neal became upset with her and “turned on me, grabbed me by the hair and hit me in the forehead with the top of his skull,” she writes, in an excerpt released by the National Enquirer and People. “I saw stars and reeled back,” she writes. “Half blind, I ran away from him.”

Huston says she hid in a bathroom until he agreed to calm down. But, she says, he hit her again. “Ryan was batting me about the head with an open hand,” she writes. “Then abruptly he left.”

An emotional Lady Gaga reveals she 'takes medication every day for mental health problems'



Lady Gaga has revealed she takes medication "every day for mental illness".

The singer, who admitted she became very depressed at the end of 2013, was performing at London's O2 Arena as part of her artRAVE: ArtPop Ball when she addressed the crowd.

During the show, she read an emotional letter from a fan who had attempted suicide, but had found comfort in her music, and then invited her on stage to sit with her when she performed Born This Way.

As she did, she reportedly said: "I take medication ever day for mental illness and depression and don't feel bad about it."



The 28-year-old said just six months ago she was in a dark place and didn't even know if she wanted to carry on with a career in pop.

Talking to Parade magazine, she said: "Six months ago I didn't even want to sing anymore.

"I tell Tony every day that he saved my life... I'm not going to say names, but people get irrational when it comes to money - with how they treat you, with what they expect from you... But if you help an artist, it doesn't give you the right, once the artist is big, to take advantage of them.
