Zoe Kravitz defends #WCW pick Amy Schumer

APMAs 2015 Recap: Winners, Performances, and Drama


Opening monologue

Though I have no doubt that all of you guys watched the 2015 Alternative Press Music Awards last night, here's a recap for those who didn't. The night, hosted by Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat of All Time Low, was full of bands and musicians in and around the pop-punk scene. Awards were given out, a shit load of people performed, and a horse got really angry.

David Gordon Green to helm upcoming Boston Marathon bombing film



- David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche, George Washington, Pineapple Express) has signed on to direct Lionsgate's film about the Boston Marathon bombing titled Stronger

- Based on the novel by Jeff Bauman, one of the survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing

- Bauman was waiting and cheering for his girlfriend to cross the finish line on April 15, 2013 when two pressure cooker bombs exploded killing three and wounding 260. Bauman lost both his legs and became a key witness in the ensuing manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (sentenced to death this past May) and Tamerlan Tsarnaev

- This is just one of three Boston bombing movies in the works (so far): CBS Films has Mark Wahlberg attached to Patriots' Day, while Fox needs a new director for Boston Strong after Daniel Espinosa left the project. Of the three, Stronger is the only one with a director attached

5 years later, Camilla Belle responds to Taylor Swift



Camilla Belle, best known for her role in DCOM classic Rip Girls, joins the Taylor/Nicki/Katy feud!

For those who don't know, Camilla dated Joe Jonas after he broke up with tswift. Tswift got pissed and wrote Better Than Revenge, which featured the following feminist, pro-female support lyrics:

"She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause / She took him faster than you could say 'sabotage'"

"She's not a saint and she's not what you think / She's an actress / She's better known for the things that she does / On the mattress"

"No amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity"




Looks like Camilla has been waiting these past 5 years for the perfect moment to call out Taylor!

It's The Week of Feuds: X Factor Reject Goes Off On Cheryl Cole...

It seems Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini has made some enemies in her days as an X Factor Judge...

katie-and-Cheryl_2_1603094a

Some random reject who couldn't sing, named Katie Weasel, went off on a rant about Cheryl, saying some pretty nasty stuff.

She went to Star magazine and said: "I think she's just there for the money. People think that I have this huge grudge against Cheryl. And granted, I do. I'm p***ed off for various reasons. If you ask me, she is fake as sh*t. I just think there's no substance to her. She can be very abrupt and rude. I don't think she's a very nice human. My advice to anyone who's going to be on the show would be to f*****g beg to get someone else as mentor."

Katie even went as far as to warn Rita Ora before she started on the panel, saying "I told her I hung out with Simon [Cowell] and Louis Walsh, and Cheryl sat with her Benson and Hedges in her dressing room staring at her diamonds. Rita, if you ever lose Cheryl, that's where she is!"

If you're wondering why this personal attack is happening now, it's because in her book Cheryl said she let Katie through despite Katie being horrible at singing/messing up because she believed in her. How odd.

How Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'The Revenant' Shoot Became "A Living Hell"

tumblr_nmyt4upgdk1qe5f96o2_500.jpg
A few disasters from the set:

  • Rapid turnover - people getting fired and quitting

  • Tom Hardy had to drop out of Suicide Squad to accommodate the ever-changing schedule

  • A young actor was dragged across the ground during a battle scene naked. Inarritu says he was considerate, but the crewmembers say the guy was in pain the entire time

  • There was only about a 4.5 hour time window available to shoot in natural light

  • Some dry suits were broken, so actors who were immersed in freezing water were uncomfortable (Inarritu denies this)

  • Production started in September 2014 and was supposed to end in March, but they are STILL shooting into August while going over budget.

  • Inarritu opted to use natural light only and planned to shoot the film entirely in Canada, but now they are headed to Argentina in search of snow

  • Veteran crewmembers acknowledge that the movie is amazing and Oscar worthy, but it was the worst experience of their careers.

ONTD Original: Rappers talk co-writing, collaboration, and ghostwriting



From the time Big Bank Hank openly rapped the name of his friend and collaborator Grandmaster "Casanova Fly" Caz on 1979's Rapper's Delight, ghostwriting has been an unavoidable but taboo part of hip hop culture. In a genre that values authenticity and personal narrative, it's still largely unacceptable for a rapper to openly accept assists from other MCs. The line between ghostwriter, co-writer and collaborator isn't always clear, though, and is made even murkier by the rules of confidentiality respected by those involved.

Nonetheless, there are plenty of high-profile cases of ghostwriting and collaboration in hip hop history, and plenty of rappers have gotten their industry start penning someone else's rhymes.

Collapse )

Most of these songs are well-known, but I thought people might be interested to hear the artists involved speak on the process from their own perspective. This might give some context to the Drake situation.

Jon Stewart Tells TDS Writer Wyatt Cenac To "F*ck Off" When Challenged About Race







  • It occured during the summer of 2011 when TDS was covering 2012 presidential hopefuls, including Herman Cain.

  • During his coverage of Herman Cain, Stewart put on a voice that Cenac found ignorant and reminded him of Kingfish from the show Amos 'N' Andy (Kingfish is the man banging on the door)

  • At a writer's meeting when Cenac, the only black writer on the show at the time, tried to bring up his issues with the voice, Stewart got defensive and started to yell at Cenac telling him there was a tone in his voice and to fuck off

  • The fight continued in Stewart's office and was stopped when the office dogs began to paw at them.

  • Cenac was so shaken by the encounter, he went outside to a nearby baseball field where he couldn't stop shaking and began to cry.

Bryan Singer Hints at possibility of X-Men/Fantastic Four Crossover



In an interview promoting the Rogue Cut for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer admitted that there are plans to merge Fantastic Four and the X-Men in the movie realm.

“That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a mechanism by which to do it...It deals with time. That's all I'm going to say." He says there's a lot that has to happen before he'll commit to saying it's a go, but that "those ideas are in play."

He also admits that cutting Rogue from the film came down to the pacing of the film. He also confirms that Magneto is Quicksilver's dad in these films. Also passes on the opportunity to drag Brett Ratner and actually defends him.

OP's Favorite "Country" "Singer" Cassadee Pope Releases "I Am Invincible"



It's been almost two years since Cassadee Pope released new music but today Rolling Stone Country released her first single (due to hit Apple Music tomorrow) for her next untitled, release-date-less album. "I Am Invincible," which Rolling Stone Country for some reason deemed "Paramore-meets-Carrie Underwood," starts out with a shoutout to "her girls, the fighters, the warriors" making it undoubtedly our next feminist power anthem written by two guys. In an interview, Pope discussed her past, women in country, and the writing process. Highlights below:

-Connected with "I Am Invincible" because she was having a lot of trouble feeling frustrated with not writing a hit every day. She's been writing for months and has "enough songs for three albums" yet is still in the writing/demoing process.
-Hopes to see more women in country soon and says in particular Kacey Musgraves and Kelsey Ballerini are good
-Writing with a bunch of people for the album and may have a duet with Kip Moore but nothing has been finalized
-"I've done a lot of experimenting," she says. "I've gone super-country, and a little more Shania pop-rock. And I want to stick with the empowerment [theme], because that can be something people turn to me for, and I love that direction." lol
-On her pop-punk roots: "That kind of music still has a special place in my heart," she says. "I felt like I was a kid again. I still enjoy that kind of music, and that will never change. But it's a different story doing it. I'm in a different mind frame now than when I was 18 years old. I was definitely more dramatic, definitely more emo." LOL

Harsh Rating Keeps Teenage Girls From Seeing Diary of a Teenage Girl



twitter

- the Sundance hit got a “18 certificate” rating in the UK

- Producer: “The film explores female sexuality with boldness and honesty in an unexploitative manner. In an age where young women are still continually being sexualised and objectified we feel The Diary of a Teenage Girl sends a very positive, reassuring message to young girls about female sexuality and body image.
It is a shame that audience will not be able legally see a film that was made by women for women of all ages.”

- BBFC: “The Diary of a Teenage Girl has been classified 18 for ‘strong sex’. The sex scenes and references are too numerous and sustained for a 15 classification to have been defensible. It is not true that the film has been seen only by men at the BBFC.”

- the plot: A teen artist (15) living in 1970s San Francisco enters into an affair with her mother's boyfriend. (ehhh)
