Jill and Jessa remain cryptic; Duggar family pastor weighs in on infidelity

A couple days since news broke that their brother Josh Duggar cheated on his wife via Ashley Madison, OKCupid and a slew of raunch-flavored social media accounts, Jill and Jessa Duggar took to their Instagram accounts to cryptically set everyone straight on what they think.

Jessa posted a pic of some bible verses on "walking in the light":


Meanwhile, Jill and her husband Derick linked Instagram followers to their home church's pastor Ronnie Floyd's sermon on "sex today":

Mayim Bialik: "It's never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles"


On people finding it hard to reconcile the fact that she has a neuroscience degree with her being religious: "Being a scientist and a person of faith, people want to know how that is. It leads to a lot of interesting conversations that I welcome but a lot of people want to open up a conversation just to tell you, you're wrong"

On her faith: "I have an unwavering faith in a power greater than myself and I don't think that will change any more than my belief in gravity will change. In terms of observance, my social media shuts down for [the Sabbath] and sometimes we go to synagogue, sometimes we stay at home and we do [Sabbath dinners]...I believe in [Jewish law] but I also believe in the permeability and changeability in the structure of Jewish law and I think Judaism has always adjusted to the times that it lived in and it’s adjusting in the time we are in now"

On modesty: "Being a modest dresser, that for me is a certain amount of my religious faith -- privacy and chastity. Just because I have a body, doesn’t mean it means to be on display"

She dislikes being labelled a prude: "It's important, especially for children and men and my sons to hear I'm not ashamed of my body, I just don’t feel the need to display it with two tiny pieces of fabric when I want to go swimming"

She thinks that the criticism she has got for her support of Israel is anti-Semitic: "I've gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel. That’s what's amazing...simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, 'I've gone to Israel,' I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people whether I like it or not are serving in an army."

Billboard Magazine Asks Industry Execs If They Believe Kesha or Dr. Luke

gettyimages-463396726-43eee84cf6081e5eec6a28f67f367cd268cf4d49-s1400-c85

Billboard magazine regularly gets opinions from music executives via a survey. But one of the questions asked in the magazines current survey, which was conducted via Google Doc and was meant to be seen by "a select group of top music-industry executives," reads as very tacky to some.

"Who do you believe:
◾Kesha
◾Dr. Luke"

In case you forgot, Kesha had filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke for sexual abuse. The Billboard senior editor would not comment to the source.

Another question asked by Billboard was "Have you ever witnessed an act of racism or sexism in the industry in the past year? If so, please describe." The source describes the "sexual and racist intimidation of and discrimination against female and minority employees" at Billboard magazine from a lawsuit that was settled out of court. Go to the source for the full story, its very interesting to say the least.

Quentin Tarantino thinks he could have done a better job directing Scream than Wes Craven did

Even though it's only August and The Hateful Eight isn't set to release until January of 2016, Quentin Tarantino has jumped onto the press train. According to Digital Spy the writer / director recently sat down and did an interview with Vulture where he talked a bit about his early career.

Tarantino claims that he turned down several big projects like Men in Black and Speed because he basically wanted to "present himself" in the industry as an original artist. One film that he was interested in, however, but was not approached for was the original Scream.

According to Tarantino, before ultimately landing Wes Craven, the Weinsteins were trying to woo friend Robert Rodriguez to direct the project. As we know he didn't accept it and horror icon Wes Craven took the reigns and Scream became a genre-influencing classic. Tarantino, however, apparently really doesn't like what Craven did with the film and thinks he could have done a better job with Kevin Williamson's script. Tarantino went on in the interview to claim that he felt Craven was "the iron chain attached to [the film's] ankle that kept it earthbound and stopped it from going to the moon".

The original Scream ended up grossing more than From Dusk Till Dawn and Grindhouse combined.

Honestly I feel that Wes Craven is really a hit or miss director. He's been involved in amazing movies but also a lot of crap. That being said a Tarantino version of 'Scream' sounds awful to me.

ONTD Original: Pitchfork and Rolling Stone come under fire for their partnership with Apple Music

Today, Pitchfork released their list of the 200 best songs of the 1980s. People were quick to note that instead of using embedded Spotify, SoundCloud, or YouTube links like they usually do for their lists, Pitchfork instead chose to post links directing readers to "Listen on Apple Music." Pitchfork's use of Apple Music links in their list is drawing criticism on Twitter, with users noting that Pitchfork also posted an article about Flying Lotus and Shamir appearing in a new Trent Reznor-narrated Apple Music advertisement immediately before their best songs of the 1980s list went up.



Pitchfork isn't the only website that is raising eyebrows for partnering up with Apple Music. Both The Guardian and NPR posted articles today criticizing Apple Music's sponsorship of Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest songwriters of all time. Just like Pitchfork's list, the Rolling Stone list also directs readers to listen to music on Apple Music. The Guardian article describes what may be in store for the future: a world where branded content and editorial content begins to become indistinguishable from one another. Signs of this can already be seen today. Just last month, Beatport, which launched its own streaming service back in March, hired THUMP's Editor-in-Chief as their VP of Media.
