Gina Rodriguez talks about Jane the Virgin and some other stuff

Gina Rodriguez is on the cover of Backstage!

Highlights from the article:

* Admitted to NYU's Tisch when she was 16.

* Relates to all the Spanish dialogue: "The concept of my mother speaking to me in Spanish and me responding in English, that is my upbringing to a T."

* Gives credit to Ugly Betty for paving the way for Jane the Virgin.

* Refused to read for Devious Maids. She wants to create change and has given up roles that don't fall in line with this.

* Was once pulled over by a cop: "He pulls me over and I say, ‘I did everything wrong, I didn’t have my seat belt on, I was looking at the directions.’ And he says, ‘You’re that virgin girl, aren’t you?’ This 55-year-old white man! I said, ‘What?’ and he says, ‘You’re the girl on the billboards.’ "

prayer circle that this show doesn't go the way of ugly betty... lbr it'll probably go completely off the rails in tonight's ep because I've already become too invested in this show and the television network gods hate me like that.

Taylor Kitsch talks about preparing for season 2 of 'True Detective'


Taylor Kitsch is featured in Adweek, with photos by Miller Mobley. He sat down to discuss his preparation for 'True Detective'.

On waiting for the 'True Detective' role:
"Yeah, I'm really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue. You’ve just got to grind it out. Even taking this year off was, I mean you want to work, but you also don’t want to just water it down and work for the sake of working. So, it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get True [Detective].

"Yeah, I mean it was just showing a lot of patience on my end and turning a lot of stuff down because I wanted to be a part of it. And having this meeting with Nic Pizzolatto and when we’re talking, I mean he’s obviously incredibly smart and passionate, so that rubs off. And you’re just excited to go now. I can’t fucking wait to hit camera. So I’m excited. I loved that first season of it so much. It’s just unlike anything I’ve seen in, you know, I don’t know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This (second season) is very similar, and I love that. It makes it more relatable. It makes these guys more real. Nowadays, it takes fucking balls to stand by that and do it that way."

Danity Kane's last album is released. Reaches #1 on iTunes R&B Charts and #6 on the overall charts.

This is so sad. The whole album slays. Secret Lover and Roulette are everything. Dawn was upset about Shannon and Aubrey recording without her but she is all over the damn songs. Plus one of the producers threw shade at Dawn about her claim of her vocals being altered saying he edited and put together the tracks and that is not true. Dammit!!!

Megan Fox misses Chinese TMNT premiere due to allergic reaction, potentially to polluted air

Living goddess and native tiger Megan Fox developed a skin allergy shortly after looking hot af at a Beijing press conference that flop LJ user placentipede incorrectly identified as the premiere. She wasn't able to make it to the premiere itself, but Fan BingBing was sent in her place for some reason.

Rumors swirled that she had a reaction to the terrible pollution, which a spokeswoman denies. Apparently, the pollution index reading was "beyond index" on Saturday, but cleared up on Sunday.

Hope she's ok!

ONTD Original: ASTROLOGY POST!! Can the stars solve the Timberbiel mystery & explain their love?

They always seemed like an odd pairing and we all know the rumormill works overtime trying to figure out their relationship, but what else could there be that we don’t see?

Any relationship between an Aquarius and Pisces seems like a disaster, and really, why wouldn’t it be? Solar Aquarians are the embodiment of emotional disconnection and Pisces is the embodiment of emotional connection. Aquarius just wants to stay up all night hanging out and talking about all their ideas and ideals, and connecting to someone’s mind; whereas Pisces wants to stay up all night living out their fantasies and daydreams which range from nice to naughty (maybe a slow dance under the stars or getting tied up and taken over) and really submit to someone that makes them feel safe. It’s not all bad though, both Aquarius and Pisces are “collective” signs, with Aquarius focused on the social and intellectual aspects of society; how can we all use our special talents that allow us to be individuals in a way that contributes to making society a better whole? Pisces is focused on the emotional and spiritual aspects of society; how can we use our bond of shared emotions to connect society through empathy and compassion? While their sun signs don’t paint the picture of compatibility, when held against their other planets, a much more favorable picture begins to open up.

Queen Bey and Topshop Form New Brand + In NOLA with Solange

She's arguably Topshop’s most famous customer. Now Beyoncé is connecting further by partnering with the brand.

Beyoncé Knowles and London-based Topshop have formed a 50-50 joint venture company, Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd., to produce an athletic streetwear brand, WWD has learned. It could launch in stores and online in fall 2015 at the earliest.

The deal is expected to be unveiled by Topshop in London today.

“This not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business — a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD in an interview Sunday. [More details at source 1]

Walmart apologizes for 'Fat Girl Costumes' section


"Not sure labeling these as "Fat Girl Costumes" is the best approach," Krystyn Washburn tweeted at the company when she discovered the label on October 21.

Walmart's twitter account replied within the hour. "Your comments and suggestions are important to us and help make Walmart even better. Thank you. -Nao," the account wrote.

Six days later, the "Fat Girl Costumes" label was noted to have reappeared on the site.

The category remained until reports were picked up by various media outlets and it was taken down.

"This never should have been on our site," a spokesperson for Walmart, Ravi Jariwala, told ABC News. "It is unacceptable, and we apologize. We are working to remove it as soon as possible and ensure this never happens again."

Charles Barkley: 'Brainwashed' blacks hold up success

During an interview with a Philadelphia radio station, Barkley expounded on claims that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wasn't liked by some of his teammates in part because he wasn't considered to be "black enough."

"There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don't have success," Barkley said. "It's best to knock a successful black person down 'cause they're intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they're successful. It's crabs in a barrel. ... We're the only ethnic group that says, 'hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.' "

QUEEN of the Phillipines Mariah Carey receives racuous welcome from Pinoy lambs!

An "incredible welcome". That's how Mariah Carey described the reception she got upon her arrival in Manila on Monday morning. The international diva, who is in the Philippines for a concert, was greeted by screaming fans at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Carey herself posted a short video on Instagram of the crowd, with the caption "Just arrived in Manila at 3 a.m." The fans were holding signs and chanting the singer's name. At one point, some of them could be seen running toward her as an aide shoots the video.

Later she posted, "Thank you Manila lambily for the incredible welcome. I love you much. I can't wait to see you at the show." Lambily refers to her fans, whom she calls "lambs". Her "The Elusive Chanteuse Show" will be held on Tuesday, October 28, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The last time Carey held a concert in the Philippines was in 2003.

Chill out it's not official

Ryan Penago Marvel's online spokesperson tweets in response to the last hours worth of "official" announcements.

To recap for those who missed it. Marvel said they'd have an announcement today, Deadline two hours ago announced Cumberbatch as Dr Strange with nothing to back it up. And while usually legit this sort of news needs RECEIPTS. The cries of a thousand haters rang out. I woke up from my nap. Ryan Penago got bombarded with tweets of people asking for confirmation and the following was his most glorious response.

[you guys can chill my dream has not become reality]

Neil Patrick Harris Hosting US "Saturday Night Takeaway"

Neil Patrick Harris will be getting the opportunity to host a variety show based on UK "Saturday Night Takeaway". Initially, CBS had tried to sell him on taking over for David Letterman, but Harris did not want to do a talk show. Instead, he pitched a variety show and NBC was the bidding winner.

"As I watched the show, I couldn't stop smiling. Now that I've seen many seasons, my face hurts. It's a game changer," said Harris. "Nothing like this has been done before, and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!"

Diego Luna talks ‘The Book of Life’

From acting and directing, Diego luna ventures into a new category providing the voice of Manolo, a musician and bullfighter, in "The Book of Life." The film tells the story of the Mexican holiday called "Day of the Dead."

“This is the first time I am involved in a movie for kids and that I do animation,” Luna said.

He also said nothing but good things about his co-stars like Zoe Saldana and Channing Tatum. “The overall experience was fantastic, it was great. I was surrounded by the right people."

While Luna claim's he's not romantic like his character, they do share one love: music.

“You know one thing, I was recently in a Juan Gabriel concert. I just realized he’s been around forever, you know? Every important moment of my life he’s been around. He’s amazing, he’s the best,” he said.

The sweetest celebrity encounter story starring, of course, Tom Hanks!

From Humans of New York's Facebook:

"So get this. I'm driving down Park Avenue one day and this guy waves for me, so I pull over and I ask him where he's going. He tells me 74th street, and I tell him that's too far for me, because my shift just ended, so he says 'thanks anyway' and walks away. But then I think about it, and I start feeling bad for the guy, cause hey-- I got a conscience. So I call him back to the cab and tell him to hop in. And he gets in the car all excited, all animated, and he's talking about all these things. But he's got his cap pulled down way over his eyes, so I can't see who it is. But pretty soon I start to recognize his voice. And when we get to a light, I turn to him, and I look him in the eye, and I scream: "WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!" And that really got him. He started laughing hard. He sees that I've got this Ferrari hat on, and a Ferrari shirt too, so he starts calling me 'Mr. Ferrari.' The whole ride, he keeps calling me 'Mr. Ferrari.' So after we get to his destination, we snap a quick photo, and he goes on his way. And I think that's it. But that's not it, cause get this. Over the next few weeks, I just happen to randomly pick up people that know him. People who have acted with him before, people who work with him. And every time, I tell them: 'Tell Mr. Hanks that Mr. Ferrari says 'hello.'" Every time I say that. Then one day I'm driving, and I get a text from one of the people that I'd driven, and it says: 'Mr. Hanks wants to invite you to see his Broadway show.' So I bring my lady to the show, and we get to go backstage and everything, and after the show, we're waiting for him in his dressing room, and he walks in and screams: 'Mr. Ferrari!' Can you believe that story? And you wanna know the craziest thing? The name of his show was 'Lucky Guy.' How crazy is that? Cause that was me. A lucky guy!"

Who comes out looking the worst on The Chair?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The last episode of The Chair brought us Anna asking for a million takes of a guy flopping down on the bed and Shane trying, a failing, to hire a black stripper to show his penis in his movie. Known racist, sexist, and all around complete pos human being Shane Dawson is making an awful movie, but the best part of the series comes from trying to figure out if Anna is really the director of her movie. The source is pretty convinced that Anna's husband, Victor, is behind the scenes directing the movie, and lbr, based on some of the "whoops we hid from the cameras but forgot to turn our mics off" conversations and Victors tweets, that theory is becoming less and less crazy.

Though she's supposedly directed a movie before, Anna can not seem to direct this movie to save her life. Sure, Shane is making a terrible movie but at least he's making it. Anna's barely got done even with her team of professionals pushing her every step of the way.

Sam Smith: How A Brit Ruled Soul Music (Again)

VIBE: You pursued your career when everyone else was just going through puberty. What was that like?

SAM SMITH: I had six managers from age 12 to 18 and there were a lot of false promises letdowns as a kid, which wasn’t great. It made me very strong but I’m also wary—things can disappear quickly.

Was there ever any point where you thought about giving up?

Of course! I moved to London when I was 18. I had let go of my sixth manager and I said: One more year. You’ve got one more year to do this and do well. And with Facebook, I was witnessing all my friends from school having the best time and I felt like I wasn’t living my life.

In The Lonely Hour is filled with love and grief but there’s an air of romance to it. Are you a romantic?

I’m a huge romantic. I’m old school. I don’t like putting everything on the plate immediately and I don’t like when things are easy. I like being wooed and I like wooing people.

Were you ever nervous that coming out would impact your record sales?

Of course! I thought about doing it after the album was released. But that’s not true to me and I wanted people to know where I’m coming from on the record. But my fear was that some stupid people in the world weren’t going to pick up a piece of work that I was very proud of just because of their views. I listen to Beyonce albums, Stevie Wonder albums, John Legend albums. They’re straight people talking about love yet I can still relate to their music and they can still relate to mine.

B99's Chelsea Peretti talks Netflix special, the internet, & feminism


MY OWN WORDS: Cheslea Peretti is one of the greats-- walking amongst us mere mortals. Yahoo did an interview with her recently about her upcoming Netflix special (NOV 14th), Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Twitter, & the F WORD (FEMINISM).



We get a good amount of Chelsea every week on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but this is just uncensored, full-blown Chelsea.
[Laughs.] Full blown? I don't know if that sounds like a good description! [Laughs.]
You're right. I'm sorry. I think that's how they've been describing Ebola on the news.
No, full-blown Chelsea. I like it. I'm excited for this though because, obviously, Brooklyn captures a lot of aspects of my personality, but my stand-up shows a different side. I'm starting to think a lot about technology and how it's shaping culture. I have a lot of anti-social behaviors and social media, weirdly, kind of fuels those... even though it's called social media.

Luis Suárez: "I called Evra a 'negro' but i'm not a racist"

In the second exclusive extract from his new book, Luis Suárez maintains that his use of the word ‘negro’ in his row with Patrice Evra was misunderstood by people who do not speak Spanish

Did I use the Spanish word “negro” in an argument that took place, in Spanish, with Patrice Evra on 15 October 2011 in a game between Liverpool and Manchester United?

Is the word “negro” the same in Spanish as it is in English?
No, absolutely not.

Am I a racist?
No, absolutely not.

I was horrified when I first realised that is what I was being accused of. And I’m still sad and angry to think that this is a stain on my character that will probably be there for ever. There had been an argument, but then I had probably had quite a few arguments during the game. Comolli said to me: “Well, they are complaining about racism.” I was very surprised.

Leighton Meester featured in OUT + Preview of her NYLON1114 cover story

OUT.com predicts people will be surprised by Leighton Meester's music, and that her "gorgeous lyricism and throaty, haunting vocals you can’t easily tune out" is very reminiscent of Tori Amos. When asked of her inspiration for "Blue Afternoon" (a favorite of the interviewer), Meester revealed it started out as a poem about "the corny idea of being lost in someone and not being able to get yourself out and being OK with that." She wrote it when she missed a flight to Barcelona to attend a friend's wedding. Of "Run Away," Meester said, "I just wanted to convey an idea or capture an idea of when it’s all wrong and it’s over with someone how desperate you feel to keep it going, even if it’s not right. Maybe if you can start fresh again, or if you can get away together, or you can just say: 'Let’s hit the reset button and go back to where we started. 'That’s not possible, but the idea is nice." When asked what attracted her to film LIFE PARTNERS, Meester said the script just made her laugh to the point of tears.

The Flash casts Malese Jow as Linda Park

Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries, Star-Crossed) is going to play the recurring role of reporter Linda Park how many reporters by that name are running around? There was an older one in the pilot who befriends Iris at work, meets Barry at a bar and becomes a love interest for him. She'll first appear in episode 1X12. No news on whether Wally even exists in this universe, but if he does, it's weird if his potential future love interest dated Barry first (Unless there are a million Linda Park journalists running around Central City).

The headline says she's a love interest, but in the article itself it says "friend", so maybe they got it wrong? Maybe they saw Linda Park was a love interest to a Flash and decided that must be what she'll be on The Flash? Who knows.

T.I. Says Raven-Symoné Has An Incredible Point About Not Being Labeled African-American

One fellow celebrity is in agreement with the former The Cosby Show star. During an interview with Larry King Now, T.I. was asked about Raven-Symoné’s statement, and the Atlanta rapper reinforced the belief that labels separate the population.

“I think she has an incredible point,” said Tip. “We are all American. To separate us – I think we need to find more reasons to unify rather than to divide each other.”

After suggesting that people should respect other’s religions, ideologies, and cultures, T.I. was asked why doesn’t he like the term “African-American.”

“I didn’t say I didn’t like it. Words to me don’t have much power unless you give them power,” T.I. explained. “African-American is what I was taught to call myself. I consider myself African-American, Black, an American. They’re all categories that we place ourselves in where we see comfort in words.”

Does the 'gay' 'community' 'care' 'enough' about HIV? Sir Elton John thinks not.

Sir Elton John calls out gay people too concerned with marriage equality for not responding enough to HIV.

Sir John spoke at a HRC dinner in Washington, DC this past weekend with his partner David Furnish. He used the speech as a way to call out gay people that do not get tested at all, or frequently enough, for HIV.

Sir: “This is the critical moment in our fight, and so many of us don’t seem to care. Even in our own community. Especially in our own community. Only 30 percent of gay and bisexual men have had an HIV test in the past year."

Sir says that only do gay men not get tested, over 60% don't even discuss HIV with their doctor.

Sir argues that just because HIV is not a death sentence anymore does not mean we should not ignore it!!! It's till an epidemic, etc.

“No one’11s going to save us but ourselves. It’s on us to put an end to HIV.” -- (is 'one'll' a word????)


MODS, I think I did a wonderful job paraphrasing. I hope you accept this post for the sake of the gay community.

What do y'all think of Sir's words?

I 100% agree. I volunteered/worked at HIV center and it is ridiculous how far removed the marriage stuff/supporters are from the epidemic. Gays have become too normative at the price of our souls/health!! The gay couple on this season of Survivor announced last week that they are 'abstinent until marriage'. It's so un-queer that it's queer.
