Gaga on Pop Stars: "If talent isn’t the thing, then you are way off-base”

Why Gaga almost quit being a pop star



This was the year Lady Gaga proved herself as more than just a meat dress-wearing pop star. With her acclaimed "Sound of Music" tribute at the Oscars, she held her own with jazz icon Tony Bennett, and landed a starring role on "American Horror Story: Hotel."

“This is the year I did what I wanted instead of trying to keep up with what I thought everyone else wanted from me.” Her change in career trajectory came at just the right moment. Last year, after dealing with backlash for her 2013 album ARTPOP, she says she considered giving up on being a pop star entirely.

“At the end of 2014, my stylist asked, ‘Do you even want to be a pop star anymore?’" she recounted. "I looked at him and I go, ‘You know, if I could just stop this train right now, today, I would. I just can’t. [But] I need to get off now because I’m going to die.’"

Christian Bale thought Teresa Palmer was a STRIPPER



Christian Bale talks about filming Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups and being one of Hollywood's most reclusive actors in a recent interview. He describes a moment during filming in which he's in a strip club. At one point, he goes up to Teresa Palmer and starts to ask her questions about her stripping, not realizing that she is actually an actress. Some of the questions he asked her include whether or not she enjoys stripping, and what made her want to become a stripper. He didn't realize that Teresa Palmer wasn't really a stripper until a week after filming, when he saw her face on a billboard.

Lee Pace wants you to show support for #ParisClimateConference with twitter selfies




-Lee is currently filming "The Keeping Hours" in LA, btw.
-2015 UN Conference on Climate Change is in Paris
-Has been facing controversy. Certain developed nations have been calling for more stringent regulations on developing nations.
-Opens an ethical question: Is is right to stifle developing nations growth after nations like the US truly flourished due to the industrial revolution? For the benefit of the planet, but at the expense of said nations?
-Controversy of certain nations sketchy reporting, etc.
-The Death Eaters in Congress (G.O.P.) has already started attempting to undermine the US pledge of reducing emissions by 26%. This attempt is called the "Clean Power Plan".
-The House approved two resolutions which would stop the EPA from enforing rules surrounding power plant emissions, both new and existing. These new rules are critical to the success of the Clean Power Plan.
-President Obama promises to VETO, of course.

Calvin Harris ~ALLEGEDLY~ jealous of Harry Styles, thinks Tay may still have feelings for him



- Calvin is worried that Taylor may still have feelings for Harry
- Even though Taylor recently liked (and unliked) a tumblr post 'shading' Harry, he's still super paranoid and jealous about it
- Doesn't want her to even mention any of her exes, especially Harry (how is he gonna handle the OOTW video...)
- Harry knows about the tumblr drama, is amused by it all. He just wants to be friends with Tay again and thinks of it as no big deal.
- All in all, Calvin is doing the most in this non-situation.



What do you think, ONTD? Is Calvin jealous of Harry? Was he butthurt when he was supposed to perform after 1D and fans left the show after 1D's performance? Did he put his instagram on private because of Haylor fans? Is he trying to kill #HaylorRise2k16?

Will Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone star in Vin Diesel's XXX - Xander Cage Returns?



Vin Diesel is currently working on the production of a new installment in the XXX series, which marks his return to the franchise: XXX - Xander Cage Returns.

He posted a small video on his Instagram a few hours ago announcing he is working with casting director Anne McCarthy (Furious 7, Riddick).

Only 4 hours before that, Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone posted on her Insta a picture of herself hugging Vin Diesel in front of a XXX background, prompting rumours that she has already been cast to star opposite the action star in the movie. Deccan Chronicle is now reporting that she flew to America two days ago especially to meet with Vin Diesel.

Deepika had originally been offered a role in Furious 7 (probably the one who went to Nathalie Emmanuel), but turned it down due to her packed schedule in Bollywood. As recently as last month, however, she has told the press she was ready to explore roles in Hollywood. Perhaps she was hinting at this very role.

J.J. Abrams Debunks the Rumors about Lupita Nyong'o's Role in TFA

gammasquadlupitamazkanata



After the recent rumors that Lupita Nyong'o's role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was cut down because it wasn't satisfactory, J.J. Abrams gave the following statement:

“The number of rumors floating around about ‘The Force Awakens’ is truly stunning. Some are wonderfully funny, others simply preposterous. But the only one more ridiculous than Jar Jar Binks being a Sith Lord is that I cut Lupita Nyong’o’s performance because it wasn’t satisfactory.

In truth, her performance wasn’t satisfactory. It was spectacular. She has brought the character of Maz Kanata to life in the most wonderful, wise, touching, deep and funny way. Lupita never ceased to amaze me. Yes, we tried many approaches, and we finally landed on just what the film needed. She elevated all the scenes she is in, I’m forever grateful, and can’t wait for people to see her stunning performance.”

Australian Radio DJ's eat gifted "vaginal thrush" bread from feminist blogger


By Danmac23
Femisist blogger Zoe Stavri gifted Australian Radio hosts Jackie "O"Henderson and Kyle Sandilands with homemade sourdough bread, much to the delight of the crew at the station who snarfed up the loaves with gumboots of butter.
She confessed on air later that she had used her own special recipe to get the sourdough started.
"I actually made it from a really special recipe that I’ve made myself ... I actually used my own bodily yeast,” revealed Stavri. The breakfast radio hosts were shocked.

“You’re taking the piss aren’t you?” asked Henderson, while Sandilands is heard retching in the background." "thank God I didn't have it, but everyone else did".
Stavri began to tell the listeners her yeast extraction method, but was stopped by Henderson who expressed an urge to "vomit".
Reaction has been swift and not polite for the blogger cum baker, who has received a wave of nasty comments on her blog "anotherangrywoman" for the stunt.

"Men generally get more praise for being base level decent human beings for doing and saying the same things that women do."

Camila Cabello Leaves 5H2 Studio Sessions to Join Shawn at Jingleball



At first fans believed that Camila would only be joining Shawn on stage for IKWYDLS at Jingle Ball shows both Fifth Harmony and Shawn would be attending, but she has been following him around as a "special guest" at ones he is only attending. Keep in mind that Shawn booked 12 shows, while 5H booked 3.  She was first a surprise guest in Dallas where she met up with Shawn, One Direction, and Charlie Puth. Today, she attended Los Angeles which was expected from the KIIS FM meet and greet giveaways, but she left the studio session early for this, while the others were still recording.

Source: YouTube, Twitter 1, Twitter 2, Twitter 3, Twitter 4, Twitter 5, Twitter 6, Twitter 7, Instagram

It was awkward enough that Camila would perform at the ones where both 5H and Shawn would be... but to appear without them is basically proof that she's doing more promo for the duet than the group. It's also cringey that 5H are still promoting Worth It instead of a new single because it would compete with IKWYDLS or because they aren't even close to finishing 5H2 (there's probably less time with Camila's solo promo run too...) ALso mess at the fandom drama, especially with how ruthless harmonizers are... the Camila fans...OT5 fans... OT4 fans... DC3 (Lauren, Normani, and Dinah) fans...

Hunter Moore Finally Sentenced.....To Two Years in Prison



After "serving" some time on house arrest with no internet access under his parents supervision, professional piece of shit and "revenge porn internet king" Hunter Moore, has been sentenced to a measly 2 years in prison, a $2000 fine and $145 dollars in restitution for charges of identity theft and computer hacking.

In case you're unfamiliar with just how awful he is, as if making hundreds of thousands of dollars posting peoples private and hacked nudes isn't enough:

"People are probably going to want to fucking kill me after I say this. But if you are quote-unquote being cyber-bullied, you should just fucking kill yourself." He continues: "My site is different. If you're posted, and people are like, 'You're fat; kill yourself,' I can understand why people are hurting themselves over it, which I hope to God never happens. But these kids who have never even been posted on my site, who are getting called a 'faggot' from a couple bullies at school? They're just weak-minded people. The shit I went through? Fucking 10,000 times worse than these fucking kids—the kid who made that video who went viral?"—he's talking about Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old Lady Gaga fan from Buffalo who made an It Gets Better video but then took his own life—"Are you fucking kidding me? He's, like, a good-looking kid. Who got called a fag every day? There's something wrong, I feel."
