Emma Thompson says that the UK's reaction to the refugee crisis has "a lot to do with racism"

Emma Thompson spoke to BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about climate change and the refugee crisis in Europe. Emma Thompson says that the UK's failure to take in its quota of refugees is shameful, going on to explain that she thinks the reaction in the UK to the crisis has "a lot to do with racism."

Janet debuts Album Cover and Tracklist for "Unbreakable"


Janet's 11th studio album will be released on October 2. The album is also available now on iTunes for pre-order.

“It’s wonderful to be creating again with Janet,” Jam and Lewis say in a joint statement posted on Jackson’s site. “From songwriting, producing, arranging, singing, dancing, acting, she deftly does it all and truly personifies the word artist. Unbreakable is a gift to all of her fans who have steadfastly stood by her. It is a subject for conversation, a plea for compassion, and a call for action from someone who’s come a long way, but’s got a long way to go, and has much to say about it. In other words, if you want to know what’s on her mind you only have to listen.”

Janet’s website also mentions that she will be opening up for the first time about her brother Michael Jackson.

BD Wong talks about why Mr. Robot's awesome transgender character is radical

[Some spoilers for the finale...]

  • Whiterose being trans is not her storyline rather she just happens to be trans.

  • BD Wong was asked to do it; no audition.

  • Sam Esmail did look into trans actor initially, but really wanted BD (who was initially reluctant because it would take a role away from a trans actor.)

  • Said it was a tough role or in his words he "short-circuited" especially with it being a character who knew everything while he knew nothing (and Sam Esmail wouldn't tell him anything.) He blew a lot of takes--more than normal.

  • Wore 5-inch heels throughout his scene that never made it on camera anyway. He's a little mad at Sam Esmail that the scene wasn't shot in full length. lol.

  • Says Whiterose is very much tied to the show's general theme on identity.

  • "...Sam then told me the irony really is that Whiterose is in disguise when Whiterose is a man, and not when Whiterose is a woman. At the end of Wednesday night’s episode, when Whiterose meets with [Evil Corp CEO] Philip Price, Whiterose may or may not be suppressing all of the femaleness of her to have these conversations with Price. That is a very radical concept, which I don’t know if we have ever seen before.


Rita Ora on Break Up from Calvin Harris: "I thought he had my back..."

Rita Ora is October's cover star for Marie Claire UK! In the interview with the magazine, Rita opens up about a few things including her infamous break up with EDM DJ and current boyfriend to satan herself, Taylor Swift. Below are the quotes and highlights.

On her plan on world domination: "Oh, it is in full effect. We're these conniving Kosovan hungry bitches, I knew that one way or another, I was going to do things my way."

On her "Style.mp3": "I would rip my T-shirts and be really punk and not clean, And I would have blonde hair, really dark eyebrows, red lipstick, lots of fake rings that made my fingers go green."

On relatioship issues: "I'm afraid of being alone. Sometimes love just makes you feel crazy. And that feeling that we have as girls, just to have that feeling, even for five seconds, it's like crack. I mean, don't compare it to that, but you know what I mean." Crack is whack!

On her break up with Calvin Klein: "There was a reason why I split up with him. [...] It was more of a thing where I was in awe. I was at that point in my relationship where I felt he could do no wrong. I thought he had my back and that he'd never steer me wrong. But then "I Will Never Let You Down" came out, and everything started to go a bit weird. I don't know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what."

ONTD, have you ever had an ex block you from performing your new single in the States? Mixed business with pleasure?

China Approves Gay Film for Mainstream Release for 1st Time

-Seek McCartney is the first time the censors have approved a film that focuses on a homosexual couple. The director, Wang Chao, announced it on Weibo. “This is a small step for the film department, and a big step for the members of the film industry,”

-The film, a Chinese-French co-production, centers on a secret relationship between a Chinese man (Han Geng) and a French man (Jeremie Elkaim).

-Other LGBT filmmakers remaink skeptical though about the possibility of other such films getting approved.  “The fact that this film can be released in theaters doesn’t mean gay films in the future will be able to released in China,” Fan Popo, an LGBT filmmaker and rights activist, told AFP on Wednesday. “China’s system for evaluating films is still very unstable, because the rules are very unclear. It depends heavily on the individual censor’s whims.” (sounds like the MPAA)

Anne Hathaway says she’s losing out on roles to younger actresses


At 32, Anne Hathaway says she’s losing out on roles to younger actresses .

Quotes from Glamour UK.
"I look around at my peers and I'm so blown away by their talent and their beauty and their cool style, as well as their ability to be an actress and be a movie star and be good at it," Hathaway told the magazine.

"I mean, they're so good and we're all trying to get the same parts," she added.

"I can't complain about it because I benefited from it," Hathaway said. "When I was in my early 20s, parts would be written for women in their 50s and I would get them. And now I'm in my early 30s and I'm like, 'Why did that 24-year-old get that part?'"

"All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you and if people go to see them you'll be allowed to make more," Hathaway said.

Donaldo: "while we're in this nation we should be speaking english"

"I think that when you get right down to it we're a nation that speaks english, and I think that while we're in this nation we should be speaking english.

And that's how assimilation takes and whether people like it or not, that's how we assimilate and that's how we go on to that next phase and that next stage, and that's how people that don't speak english, and I'm not just talking about spanish, I'm talking about from various parts of the world, that's how they will become more successful and do great, so I think it's more appropriate to speak english."

Selena's new album inspired by Xtina! / Possibly starring in I Know What You Did Last Summer remake?

Selena Gomez has a lot to be excited about. She has a smash hit on her hands with the Platinum certified smash Good for You and her second solo album Revival will be released October 9th! In a new interview Selena talks about her many musical inspirations.

"I grew up with Britney and NSYNC and Janet and all those people. I would buy the copy, read the thank yous, and I felt like I knew them. Christina Aguilera's Stripped was one of my favorites. What I loved about Revival is that it felt like there's a fluid story."

A remake of the 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer is currently in the works and producers are reportedly looking at Lucy Hale, Selena and Victoria Justice to possibly cast as Julie James, originally portrayed by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Breck Eisner is rumored to be directing the film and Josh Scott Bentley is so far the only confirmed star.

SO here for this! Imagine Selena recreating this iconic scene.

Thoughts, ONTD? Are you ready for Selena's Stripped inspired album & would you like to see her star in IKWYDLS? If Selena were to star, who would you like to see cast as Helen?

Tinashe: "I have so much more to offer than being a copy of someone else."

-About comparisons with Beyoncé, Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, etc:
"I take it as a compliment. The people I get compared to, I genuinely respect. But, I have so much more to offer than being a copy of someone else."

-About her experience in the industry so far:
"It's been a learning process. When I was making Aquarius, some people didn't respect my opinions. I think it was a combination of me being young, a new artist, and a woman. But you can't allow other people to dictate your creative perspective."

In other news, Tinashe recently released a music video for "Bet", ending the "Aquarius" era. And also, a trailer for her upcoming second album "Joyride", to be released in November, and with it's first single dropping next week.

Racist Asshat Curt Schilling pulled from ESPN commentary FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON!


ESPN put out a press release announcing that Schilling is out for the rest of the season AND the Wild Card game that ESPN has for the postseason because his racist fuckery tweets are ~not consistent with ESPN's brand.~ Sarah Palin is probably steamed. Previously, Schilling was replaced by Jessica Mendoza during his initial suspension (Schilling was set to return this Sunday), who has received overwhelmingly positive reviews for her commentary (and also happens to be a trailblazer in being the first woman to call baseball games on ESPN). Presumably, (though I checked and there doesn't appear to be any official word) Mendoza will continue on in Schilling's spot.

Anne Hathaway reveals the origin of the term 'on fleek'

-Hathaway and "The Intern" director Nancy Meyers talked to the LA Times about their movie, women, other stuff..

What's it like to act inside one of the beautiful worlds Nancy creates?

Hathaway: Your character's environment is so revealing about who they are. I loved Jules' apartment, but I also loved the offices. It was hip and cool and understated. Everything was beautiful but functional. Seeing the office started to inform the costume decisions. Her wardrobe is on fleek but practical.

Meyers: On fleek. Now this is a completely made-up word.

Hathaway: No, no, there's an origin for "on fleek." It's from an eyebrow tutorial. It went viral, and now we all say it.

Meyers: I posted a photo on Instagram of the TV in my kitchen with "The Bachelorette" on and in front of it was a rack of cookies I had just made and Mindy Kaling wrote "On Fleek" in the comments. I emailed my kids and asked, "Is this a typo?"

["On fleek" means "perfect" or "on point."]

I have all these memories of the early moments of filming of either me standing next to him in silence, trying to think of something to say and then coming up with a really lame joke. About three weeks in, I finally relaxed. We just started shooting the breeze every day. He was so easy to talk to after that."

More Marvel Studio Shakeup Dirt: Kevin Feige Almost Left Marvel Due To Civil War's Massive Budget

part 1 + part 2

-Ironically it was because of Captain America: Civil War that brought the civil war in Marvel Studios to a boiling point between Feige and Perlmutter.
-Because of Civil War's huge cast the budget was way bigger than the typical solo movie Marvel produces and that didn't bode well with Perlmutter.
-Perlmutter and the creative committee wanted to scale it down (the article also mentions that the committee wont be disbanded but there influence on the movies will be minimal at best now).
-Because of them Feige contemplated leaving Marvel until Disney's Bob Iger stepped in and amended the situation.
-Another source claims that it was because Age of Ultron didn't live up to expectations financially and Feige used that as leverage to push out Perlmutter.

*adele's "rolling in the deep" starts playing in the distance*
also, you all need to help me come up with a creative name for this marvel shakeup just incase we get more dirt about it in the future.
