Interview with the first African-American Kpop star - Alexandra Reid

AR7


  • Before joining the kpop group 'Rania' she starred in Jamie Fox's MV in 'You Changed Me'

  • She was a Def Jam affiliated artist and also a model

  • Was a super late edition to the group (like 2 weeks before the album was released), to the point that she isn't even in the music video, nor was she taught the full dance routine or had time to learn korean

  • A lot of hate actually comes from international fans of kpop, South Koreans have been welcoming her

Fox Studios: There is Absolutely No Bear Rape in 'The Revenant'





-A weird as fuck report from The Drudge Report claimed that Alejandro González Iñárritu's new film The Revenant has "features a shocking scene of a wild bear raping Leo DiCaprio."
-This rumor spun wildly out of control to the point that a spokesperson from Fox had to step in and be like wtf no.
-According to the spokesperson "the bear in the film is a female who attacks Hugh Glass because she feels he might be threatening her cubs."
-They again emphasized that Dicaprio absolutely does not get sexually assaulted by a bear in the movie.

Kylie: I'm obsessed with Gaga



Kylie revealed to Interview that Gaga is a current obsession of hers. She says Lady Gaga is "the nicest person ever"! The 18-year-old new-found ableist claims Gaga gave her a helpful life advice when they met at the Alexander Wang fashion show in Paris back in September.

When asked about her 40 million Instagram followers, Kylie said: "It intimidates me but I've just realized, like... You know who I'm obsessed with? I'm obsessed with Lady Gaga. I saw her at the Alexander Wang fashion show after-party, and I think she's the nicest person ever. She came up to me and was like, 'I think you're so amazing, and whatever you're doing, people are just obsessed with it,' and she basically told me to not change. And I feel like that really helped me, because there's a reason why I have so many followers and why people pay so much attention to me. So I just try not to change and stay authentic."

Stan for the good sis! Was this helpful life advice, or life ruining advice ONTD?

ONTD Original: 6 @ScooterBraun managed acts that flopped in 2015

Plus An Honorable (Film) Mention

As 2015 comes to an end and the music industry begins to tally the year's best-selling albums, it is clear that Justin Bieber's "Purpose" will end up high on that list. Scooter Braun and his team worked hard in repairing Justin Bieber's tarnished image and mobilizing his fans to help Justin achieve the biggest debut of the year, before he was quickly dethroned by Adele the following week. Just like Justin, Ariana Grande, another Scooter Braun-managed act, also had a successful year with two Top 15 singles on the Hot 100, and her next album is one of 2016's most anticipated music releases.



Although Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande were two of the most-talked about and well-received artists Scooter Braun manages, Scooter wasn't able to duplicate that level of success with a lot of other artists he's currently managing. You might recall seeing these artists inexplicably snag prime promotional slots at award shows and late night shows, without ever once hearing their songs on the radio. This list looks at the Scooter Braun-managed acts that made you ask a very important question this year: "Who is this person and why are they here?"

Liam: Secrets uncovered.

Niall looks shady. Louis remains silent.

Chris Brown bumped as guest for The Daily Show

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Chris Brown was scheduled to be last night's guest for The Daily Show, but Nick Cannon was announced as Tuesday's guest on Instagram just hours before the show aired.

There are reports that many members of TDS staff were concerned and disappointed in Brown's booking, ultimately leading the show to rescind his invitation.

Trevor Noah wanted to use the interview to bring light to domestic abuse issues. I'm sure he would have a lot of nuanced insights to share.

Ariana Grande cancels 4 international shows with no reason or release, @ScooterBraun strikes again




-Ariana Grande has cancelled all 4 of her international shows in December and claims she will reschedule them
-The first show at Du Arena in Abu Dhabi (Dec. 3) was given a 2-day social media notice
-Fans had already booked travel and hotels (most likely not possible to get back) and may have trouble getting ticket refunds since the arena didn't get an offical release
-She will also miss Jingle Ball in London (Dec. 5), but this is more reasonable since there are multiple headliners
-The Honeymoon Tour was planned to end at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama City, Japan (Dec. 8 and 9), but this cancellation should be handled carefully, since Japan is the 2nd biggest music market in the world and one she is very successful in (My Everything topped Japan iTunes for 9 weeks)
-This news comes after Scooter's other act Justin Bieber cancelled 2 New York appearances with a few hours notice
