JK Rowling is against Israel Boycott and instead wants "open dialogue and interaction"



She is one of the signatories to a letter criticising an earlier letter signed by several artists (including Miriam Margolys/Prof Sprout and Liam Cunningham/Davos Seaworth!) calling for a cultural boycott of Israel over its occupation of Palestine, as part of the worldwide Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement.

The letter states: "Cultural boycotts singling out Israel are divisive and discriminatory, and will not further peace. Open dialogue and interaction promote greater understanding and mutual acceptance, and it is through such understanding and acceptance that movement can be made towards a resolution of the conflict."

"Cultural engagement builds bridges, nurtures freedom and positive movement for change. We wholly endorse encouraging such a powerful tool for change rather than boycotting its use."

Two-time Booker Prize winning novelist, Hilary Mantel is also among the signatories to this letter.

Reese Witherspoon Is Game for a "Legally Blonde 3"





On the possibility of a "Legally Blonde 3"
"A lot of writers, like, over the years, have come up with different ideas for it. I actually think it's kind of great right now because we're talking about women in politics and how important that is to get more women. And I think it'd be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court justice, or someone who runs for office -- President, I mean ... I think it would be cool. I think we're ready to see Elle and see what she's up to lately. That said, I don't know. Call MGM! I have no idea."

Tarantino Rallies Against Police Brutality in New York

image host
Tarantino said: "When I see murders, I do not stand by ... I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers."

image host
And because of that, The New York Police Department has called for a citywide boycott of Quentin Tarantino's films.

"It's no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too," Lynch said, adding that "New Yorkers need to send a message" to Tarantino by boycotting his films.

The rally happened a few days after a police officer was shot and killed.

"It's like this: It's unfortunate timing, but we've flown in all these families to go and tell their stories ... That cop that was killed, that's a tragedy, too" - Tarantino

Gwen & Gavin Finalize Divorce: It's Really Over

1369958543866092613

After two months, the couple have finalized their divorce and here are the details we have. They will have joint custody of their 3 sons (nine-year-old Kingston, seven-year-old Zuma and one-year-old-band-aid-baby Apollo). They will be spending slightly more time with Gavin while Gwen is on tour. The couple did not have a prenup, but Gavin opted to take less than his half of the community property. (probably the only decent thing he did tbh) The rumors have been around for years that Gavin was not faithful but there are no other solid stories on what instigated this final breakup. Looks like, this is it! I, for one, am excited for new music!

Host sexually harassed on live tv, male co-host calls her "hormonal".



It's in Spanish but you can clearly tell everything that is happening.

In a disgusting display of the class sexism, Mexican TV host Tania Rezo was victim of sexual harassment on live TV by her co-host Enrique Tovar. Tovar started by making several "jokes" about her leading him on (completely unprofessional and out of place), to which she responds "I didn't, you lead yourself on". Which obviously resulted in his fragile male ego getting hurt and he proceeded to grab her by the waist several times. This goes on for a few minutes until he starts "playing" and saying how nice her necklace is, then touches her breast. When she calls him out and starts saying she cannot work in these conditions anymore, he responds by calling her "hormonal", saying she's over-reacting and claiming he never touched her and asks producers and camera crew to help him out. She ends up rightfully walking out of the set while he's still calling her "hormonal".

Makes you wonder how much worse is behind cameras. Fortunately people on social media are standing behind her.

Write up by me.

EDIT: So it gets worse, they both got fired and now released a video statement with their network claiming it was a joke which it was obviously not, but they have to do everything to not blame that piece of shit harasser and somehow drag her down for standing up to this bullshit.

EDIT 2: She said on her facebook she was forced to say the harassment was staged

Effie Brown on 'Project Greenlight' controversy and why diversity is a hot topic right now



"The Changemakers" panel on diversity happened @ the 2nd annual Produced By: New York (PBNY) conference on Saturday, Oct. 24th

- When talking about the controversy on Matt Damon's mishandling of diversity on Project Greenlight, Brown said that the controversy was a good thing because it got people talking about the issue

Some topics discussed:

- Project Greenlight's diverse group of talent and not simply tokenism

- SAG and its diversity incentive (if you cast people of color, and women and older people you get help with your budget)

- The power of the audience: "They're seeing successes like 'Furious Seven' and 'Straight Outta Compton' and failures like 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E,' and white-washed movies like 'Stonewall,' 'Exodus,' 'Aloha'… All those movies tanked. The movies with women protagonists and people of color are doing really well." (Mynette Louie, President of Gamechanger Films)

- Creating diverse characters without portraying them flawless people. For example, Viola Davis in HTGAWM

- Applying the Rooney Rule (from NFL) for film *

Other interesting topics @ the source

Source 1

* it's a rule that requires NFL teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching and senior football operation jobs. It's named after Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the chairman of the league's diversity committee, and indirectly the Rooney family in general, due to the Steelers' long history of giving African Americans opportunities to serve in team leadership roles. TAKE NOTE, ROONEY MARA.

'Walking Dead' Viewer Killed His Friend for Turning Into a Zombie


Grants police spokesman Moses Marquez said Sunday that 23-year-old Christopher Paquin was beaten and that 23-year-old Damon Perry is being held on a murder charge.

Perry told investigators they had been drinking when Paquin began "to change into a zombie" and tried to bite him.

Police say Perry beat Paquin with his hands, feet, an electric guitar and a microwave.

Authorities say Perry attributed his actions to binge-watching "The Walking Dead," which centers on a zombie apocalypse, on Netflix.

Carrie Brownstein’s New Memoir “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl”

brownstein728 (1)

-For years she has tried to compartmentalize herself from the music that she shares with the people who love her work and the part where she understood the obsessive fan urges being one herself. “For a long while I could share nothing more than the music itself. I think I was too scared to be open with fans because I knew how bottomless their need could be,” she writes. “How could I help them if I was just like them?”

-Hear about her short romantic relationship with her bandmate Corin Tucker

-Nervous breakdown in Brussels in which she repeatedly punched herself in the face before a show.

-Mother has suffered from anorexia, first checking into an into an eating disorder unit at a hospital in Seattle when Brownstein was 14. “I was mildly enjoying the attention that having a mother in the hospital granted me,” she writes. “An illness in the family felt like the currency I needed to make myself more interesting.”

Simon Cowell is Trying to Find the Latin One Direction with a Messy Singing Competition Show



  • The new show is called 'La Banda' and it's sole goal is to find the Latin 1D. This past Sunday night the top 12 was chosen.


  • The auditions consisted of each boy having a sob story and then an audience of teenaged girls would vote onif they thought they were hot or not. Only then could they see the judges. This resulted in some really bad auditions.


  • Simon's classic audience manipulations are ever present.


  • The Youtube channel uploads recaps and clips of each episode in English so if you don't have subtitles for Univision you can still follow along. Hulu also has the full episodes, but only with Spanish subtitles.

Lorne is extremely protective of Jimmy, obviously. Does Jimmy like to party and have a good time? Absolutely, and there late nights of going out with the crew after the show finishes taping, but it’s not every night.”

- A source who went to the Harvard event said he was drunk when he fell.
- “After he fell, the police helped him up. He immediately started yelling, ‘More Jaeger! More Jaeger!'” since he broke the bottle of Jaeger that he was carrying, the source continued. “Eventually someone brought him more Jaeger.”
- RadarOnline says he's been a party animal for years, reporting his bar fight in 2014 at Niagra in NYC and how he's been a fixture in the bar scene in New York.
- Sources close to Fallon say none of this is true.
