Paris Talks About Kim K.

Paris sat down with Elle's editor in chief Joe Zee for an interview. Here's what she had to say.

A lot of them wrote about Kim being your former assistant/ stylist, do you think your career paved the way for her?

We've known each other since we were little girls. We've always been friends. It's nice to inspire people. So yeah. I'm really proud of her and what she's done though.

Do you guys still talk?

I saw her like a few weeks ago in New York. And we were hanging out.

And do you hang out with Kanye?

Yeah. They're so cute together. They're the perfect couple.

And what about North West?

She's so cute. She's always wanted to have a family, so I'm really happy for her.

Got my tickets in late March - the guy said that the set hadn't even been built at that time, so... wondering if a month in rehearsals is going to be enough time! I hope the play is good and that Jesse's character is less annoying than the first two he played. Full plot here: http://www.thenewgroup.org/the-spoils.html

The only other cast member I kinda know is Michael Zegen - apparently he was in Adventureland but I know him more from Boardwalk Empire, where he played Bugsy Siegel for a few episodes. (ETA: I did not think he was 5 years older than Jesse, but he is.) I've never watched Big Bang Theory, and I only recently found out that Erin Darke is Daniel Radcliffe's girlfriend, lol.

Paramount Pictures pulls historical fantasy The Moon and the Sun from release

[image: Pierce Brosnan at Versailles during filming. Via Instagram.]

Paramount Pictures has pulled the historical fantasy The Moon and the Sun from its release schedule only three weeks before it was meant to hit theaters. The film, based on a bestselling novel of the same name, stars Pierce Brosnan as Louis XIV; the plot of the film revolves around Louis XIV's decision to capture a mermaid (played by Fan Bingbing) in order to gain immortality by stealing her life force.

The Moon and the Sun was originally slated to be released on April 10th. Paramount Pictures has not announced a new release date for the film. According to Hollywood Reporter, "one source close to the film" has said that the special effects for the movie are taking longer than anticipated, and that it may be released in the summer of 2015.

Paramount's decision marks the second film featuring Louis XIV to be pulled from its American release date this year. Earlier in 2015, the more traditional historical film A Little Chaos, starring Alan Rickman as the famous Sun King, was pulled from its American theater release. Louis XIV just can't catch a break!

Industry insider says Iggy's tour was brought down because it was "a financial disaster."

Despite Iggy's claim that her arena tour has been postponed because she's a perfectionist who needs more time to have an awesome stage built, an industry insider says it's got more to do with horrible ticket sales. Had ticket sales been good, Iggy's team would've forced a solution in time for the tour to start as scheduled.

The insider says that the whole thing was “a complete crash and burn.”

“There was a big guarantee, a big ticket price and no fan base,” said the insider. “They brought it down because it was a financial disaster.”


Tidal addresses the backlash

-They don't even talk about the price because Billboard was too wimpy to ask about it.
-You should look at yesterday's meeting as the opposite of music's 1% getting together to get richer, because they're "stepping out on a limb and doing this."
-The 540,000 figure of subscribers they shared are come from the holding company Aspiro (what Tidal used to be).
-Everybody supposedly contributed to the artist manifesto that Alicia Keys read where she quoted Nietzsche. They "wanted it to be really significant and explain what Tidal is."
