Rihanna @ the 2015 NBA All-Star game

rihanna

In anticipation of her upcoming country album, Rihanna dressed in full denim (again) and bared her midriff in a white crop top as sat next to Melissa at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game.

The jeans in particular had colorful artwork, including a cigarettes that had the words "fuck off" (and apparently cost $2500). She wasn't in the mood to deal with the moral watchdogs this year though and quickly covered up the words when the camera panned to her.

Sam Taylor-Johnson Might Back Out of 50 Shades Sequels Due to Battles With Outer Goddess, EL James

dakota

Despite the first film's massive financial -- if not critical -- success, reports suggest that Sam Taylor-Johnson might be trying to back out of directing the 50 Shades sequels because of her toxic relationship with the books' author, EL James. Allegedly James and Taylor-Wood blame each other for the problems with the movie. Some speculate that the author is unhappy with the tone of the film (because Sam made it look like the horror it was, as opposed to a touching love story about a guy who stalks and beats you), even though James had unprecedented control over production. Taylor-Johnson, meanwhile, presumably blames EL James for ruining her artistic vision with the shitty dialogue that the author refused to budge on.

It's also worth noting that Universal has actually not greenlit the next two films yet -- they're simply in discussions. So all of this could be some expert negotiation on Taylor-Johnson's part to try to wrestle more control away from James should the "auteur" choose to revisit the material another time.

It probably would be very interesting to see what Taylor-Johnson would do with the sequels if she was unfettered by James, but Universal must be wondering if anyone will bother seeing sequels if their curiosity is sated (and in some instances confused and alarmed) by the first movie.

Quotes:

- 'I just don't understand it. Why should we be paid less because we have boobs and a vajayjay?' Perrie ponders. (so eloquent!)
- About the Sony e-mails leaks Leigh said: 'If things don't change women in the film industry should just go on strike. Could you imagine if all women in the film industry just stopped working or turned down parts until they got equal pay?'
- 'It's so refreshing to see females owning it right now,' said Leigh-Anne. 'Girl power is what we're about. It's what we stand for as a group.We want to do everything we can to make women feel better about themselves.'

From April 29 through July 19th, Darren Criss will be playing the role of Hedwig in the Tony-nominated Broadway production Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The lead role was famously portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall and others, but the Glee star will be rounding out the headlining role in 2015's 12-week engagement at the Belasco Theater.

So excited for him! Seethe, Darren-haters. I can't wait until he can leave Glee behind for good.

Food Babe doesn't ingest any chemicals, ever.




The rundown:
- Vani Hari aka The Food Babe gives an interview to the Atlantic to promote her new book with it's ridiculously wordy title, The Food Babe Way: Break Free from the Hidden Toxins in Your Food and Lose Weight, Look Years Younger, and Get Healthy in Just 21 Days!
- Her book details how she quit her finance job to devote herself to a crusader for public health, despite, as the article says, having "no training in human metabolism, toxicology, or environmental science."
- Hari thinks it's absurd that people expect someone to be a doctor or scientist in order to fully understand and discuss food chemistry. Imagine that. People expect someone to be a qualified expert on something they devote their life to.
- Mark Hyman, the author of 10-Day Detox Diet, has compared Hari's tireless food crusades to the work of Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Both Jezebel and Science Blogs have already called the article and Hari out.

Conleth Hills talks Varys and changes being made in GOT Season 5



About Varys and his loyalty:

Well, one never knows entirely what's going on with Varys, but he seems to be less guarded this season, is all I can say, and more prepared to declare his allegiance to someone. I can say no more than that. You know, but I can't say, unless you want me to get sacked! [Laughs.] That's another reason it's best for me to know as little as possible

Niall steals another girl!

1D's bubbly blonde Niall Horan may have a new girlfriend who may have dumped her boyfriend for him.



The girl in question is Melissa Anne Whitelaw, a 21 year old student/fashiony/arty person from Sydney (top left in pic).

The first fans learned that the Irish Mr Steal Yo Girl may have struck again was when photos emerged of a pretty girl with ombre hair accompanying him to rehearsals (bottom left). She then joined him on a boat with Liam, Louis and their girlfriends (so far unstolen by Niall) but after tracking her down fans were relieved to find loved up pics with a boyfriend on her instagram just a few weeks ago. But then disaster struck! Melissa deleted the pics, was spotted at a 1D show (top right), and at the weekend the two crushed fangirls' hearts by being photographed in a clinch (bottom right). Melissa reportedly confirmed her relationship with Niall over instagram (source)

Oscars 2015: A Peek at Six Academy Voters Ballots




awardscircuit via twitter

Awardscircuit's Clayton Davis anonymously polled six AMPAS members about their Oscar ballots.

some quotes:

- "There was no question that this was Eddie Redmayne. One of the greatest performances in this modern era. I’m glad we found him."

- "Emma Stone. She gave the best work by any person, in any category."

- [about Selma]"I thought it was okay but didn’t think it was anything amazing. This talk about “racism in the Academy” was just uncalled for. If the movie isn’t that great, we don’t vote for it. Plain and simple. We gave our award to “12 Years a Slave” last year for crying out loud. I truly believe the blatant racism days in the Academy are well behind us."

Catch Leighton Meester on tour and listen to her new dreamy cover with Dana Williams

Mods, I combined/already paraphrased two separate interviews. That's why it's longish.

Leighton Meester will spend the rest of February on tour -- click here to see if you're lucky! If you're not as lucky, you can still appreciate her SLAY-tonness through these interviews and a recent cover of the Caravelles' "Dream of You" she released with lifelong friend Dana Williams.

Looking back at starring on Broadway's OF MICE AND MEN and if she'll revisit theatre: At this point it’s been almost a year since I started it, but it really seems like yesterday. It’s hard to describe; I’ve never experienced anything quite like that, but I loved it and I’d love to do it again at some point in the future. I don’t know if I can match that particular experience or level of inspiration that I got, but I’d like to try.

The process of her releasing her album, which was in the works for five years: I started the process of writing the record about four and a half years ago, and then I was going back and forth between LA and New York working with bands and musicians to put music out there in a live setting, but I’d never recorded anything because I wasn’t going to have time to do a proper tour or promote it.[...] Collapse )

Colin Farrrell used to beat up the bullies who attacked his gay brother



Eamon Farrel has said that his brother acted as his protector. "He acted the part of the big brother. I hate fighting. But he would do that for me. One young fella out on the road shouted "You faggott Farrell". Colin went out and kicked the shite out of him. Honestly."

He also said that Colin "burst into tears" when he told him he was gay. Recently Colin has been a staunch advocate for legalizing gay marriage in his homecountry of Ireland saying that "'the fact that my brother had to leave Ireland to have his dream of being married become real is insane."
