Is Beyonce Performing at the Grammys? + Kelly Defends Bey and SNL's Formation Spoof





Several factors have led some to believe that Beyonce will be performing at the Grammys later this week.  The seating chart showed her sitting in the front row despite not having any nominations for this year.  A purported photo of her dressing room for the awards show was also released which would be strange if she were just attending.  Will we have our first full performance of Formation?   Or perhaps the first official single off the new album?

At least Tori Spelling has her stepson for company



In that same appearance Wednesday on Kocktails with Khloe where she revealed her inner piss demon, Teri Spelling talks about having her husband Dean McDermott's son from a previous marriage, Jack (17), move in them (supposedly due to the owed child support her husband failed to pay). She initially worried that she was going to be a "stepmonster" but adds, "We had some rough years and now it's amazing and we have a good relationship and he's like my best friend." (probably the only "friend" she doesn't pester for cash)

Jaime King defines Squad




"The idea of a squad is really the idea of friendship and the idea that everybody’s welcome, the idea that women should be supporting other women and that’s something that’s really important…everyone knows I’m quite the feminist and I really believe that.”

Kanye Says He Is $53 Million in Debt

After going on (another) Twitter rant about his new album The Life of Floplo, Kanye claimed that he has $53 million in personal debt.

So how in the fuck could someone who is richer than God and also claims to be a genius be $53,000,000 in debt?

The source of his debt might be his fashion lines. Kanye allegedly lost $30 million from his women's clothing line in 2014. His Yeezy clothing line allegedly lost him $16 million.

Sorry for yet another Kanye post, but this guy just doesn't let up.

'American Idol' Finalist Rayvon Owen Comes Out As Gay In New Video



the skinny:
-original treatment for "Can't Fight It" video ended with him leaving the club with a woman, he knew he couldn't be dishonest and had the love interest changed to a guy
-decision to come out accelerated by a close friend passing away last year and meeting LGBT activist Shane Bitney Crone (of the documentary Bridegroom), who appears in the video
-Owen came out to his mother first, who "still loves [him] but it wasn’t easy at first. And she said some things that she apologized for".
-his advice for LGBT youth: "Surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally and who lift you up. Find your tribe. I promise there are people out there who will understand and love you. Life is short and tomorrow is never promised, so be proud of who you are and spend time with people who make you happy. You are no less a child of God than anyone else. You are worthy of love and happiness and shouldn't settle for anything less."

ONTD Original: ALLEGED Cassandra Clare (@cassieclare) a/k/a Judith Remelt/Lewis Controversies


Copyright does not belong to me or ONTD. Credit goes to the photographer and http://planetadelibrosmexico.com/tag/cassandra-clare/.

tl; dr: Basically, Cassie is being sued right now by Sherri Kenyon, the author of the Dark Hunters series. Kenyon claims Cassie originally used darkhunters and changed it to shadowhunters, promising not to place emphasis on it, but now is with the TV series being named Shadowhunters instead of Mortal Instruments.

There are also similarities between The Mortal Instruments and The Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve. Both have Valentine an evil unknown biological father, the name Infernal Devices, special weapons, etc. and the Engines series is known as Predator Cities in the US despite the author not liking it. Some suspect it's because even tho his series was made in 2001, it didn't come to the US til 2012 which was when Cassie's series got really popular.


Everything else is fandom wank, her Ron/Ginny incest fic, allegations of bullying, past possible fanfic plagiarism, etc.

Disclaimer: Everything I write in this post is legal and will NOT infringe on fair use or have defamatory claims. Cassandra Clare is a limited-purpose public figure, meaning she is not a household name, but has willingly put herself in the public eye through her writing of the popular young adult books turned movie/TV series, The Shadowhunter Chronicles. "Limited-purpose public figures, like public figures, have at least temporary access to the means to counteract false statements about them. They also voluntarily place themselves in the public eye and consequently relinquish some of their privacy rights. For these reasons, false statements about limited-purpose public figures that relate to the public controversies in which those figures{C}{C}{C}{C} are involved are not considered defamatory unless they meet the actual-malice test set forth in Sullivan."  There is no malicious intent from the original OP aka me and no proof numbers wise that Ms. Clare's reputation has been damaged, since she is still one of the most successful YA writers, regardless of previous controversies. These previous controversies will be reported on by me and NOT be taken as 100% true or false. I do not have the means to know whether or not these are libel and will only report on the allegations. Actual text from works in this
post will be cited under fair use. No passages from any of Cassandra Clare's own copyrighted works from the published series, The Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, Bane Chronicles, etc will be use. The, Cassandra Claire's fanfiction, "Mortal Instruments", is credited to Claire for writing and belongs to JK Rowling under copyright law due to the use of her characters and exact settings (ex. Hogwarts or The Burrow). This does not infringe on Ms. Rowling's copyright because she has publically stated she is okay with fanfiction and cannot infringe on Ms. Clare's since it does not belong to her. This is likewise for her fanfiction series, "The Draco Trilogy." Copyright for excerpts of lifted lines also goes to Pamela Dean. My post also falls under commentary/criticism. Futhermore, I am not suggesting anything Cassandra Clare did is legally wrong.

CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING PUBLISHED WORKS:

SHERRILYN KENYON'S DARK HUNTER
Author of the Dark Hunters series, Sherrilyn Kenyon, has recently filed a lawsuit, stating that Clare's series is so similar to hers that Clare's publisher once printed 100,000 copies of her book referencing Kenyon's series and originally used dark hunters, before promising she wouldn't put great emphasis on the term shadowhunter (it is now the name of the TV series). Other similarities include a line of warriors who protect humans from demons, how a young person becomes the hunter, and both having enchanted swords that are "divinely forged, imbued with otherworldly spirits, have unique names, and glow like heavenly fire."

PHILIP REEVE'S THE MORTAL ENGINES QUARTET (MORTAL ENGINES, PREDATOR'S GOLD, INFERNAL DEVICES, A DARKLING PLAIN)
There are also similarities between Philip Reeve's "The Mortal Engines Quartet" and Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" and "Infernal Devices" series. One of Reeve's books is also called the "Infernal Devices," the same name as one of Clare's series. Content similarities include the use of "special weapons" like Reeve's ODIN, Diamond Bat, Jinju 14, and the Nine Sisters and Clare's Mortal Instruments (Mortal Cup, Sword, Mirror) and a few shared character names like Magnus and Valentine. In The Mortal Engines, Thaddeus Valentine is the biological father of the unknowing female protagonist, Hester Shaw who wishes to get revenge on him for killing her mother and who she believes to be her father when she is young. In The Mortal Instruments, antagonist Valetine Morgenstern is revealed to be the father of female protagonist, Clary Fray. The Mortal Engines series came out in the UK in 2001, but was not published
in the US until 2012. When it was published here, it was called Predator Cities or The Hungry City Chronicles, leading some to suspect it was because of the original title's similarity to the now YA best seller and soon to be movie. Although, the similarites haven't been addressed by either author or publisher, Reeve did say this about the new title:

What are 'The Hungry City Chronicles'?

When the Mortal Engines books were first published in the United States my then U.S. publisher, Harpercollins, felt that they needed a series title, and they chose The Hungry City Chronicles.  I've never liked it and I never use it, so you won't find it mentioned anywhere else on this site!

All Members + Manager of UK Indie Band Viola Beach Die in Car Accident


- They were driving near Stockholm, Sweden when their vehicle plunged more than 80 feet off a bridge into a canal.

- The bridge periodically opens for boats passing through underneath with a middle section that rises vertically rather than tilting like most canal bridges.

- There were warning signs/lights and other drivers were waiting for the opening to close when Viola Beach's car flew by.

- An eyewitness recounted, "It was very tight," he said. "They passed me and in front of me was a taxi and the car smashed the side of this car and then they go in the barrier, then I don't see anything more of the car, the lights were gone."

Thor and Black Widow voted Most Dateable for Valentine's Day


Fandango surveyed more than 1,000 film lovers to find out the most dateable characters/stars from classic and last year's films. According to managing editor Erik Davis:

"Thor and Black Widow both represent fantasy fulfillment and they are both exotic, intriguing and mysterious. It doesn't hurt that Thor is from another world, seen with his shirt off and has the long-flowing blonde hair. It's very appetizing for people. Black Widow is fiercely independent, strong, and she wears black leather outfits, which isn't a bad thing."

Rose/Kate Winslet from Titanic and Jack/Leonardo DiCaprio jk Noah/Ryan Gosling from The Notebook topped the poll of Most Dateable Classic Movie Heartthrobs. Vivian Ward/Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman and Jack/Leo from Titanic claimed second place.
