Today in "Please STOP This Nonsense" Segment: 'Death Note' to Shoot This Year, Probably Rated R.



  • Adam Wingard directing; Nat Wolff starring as Light

  • Film's producer Roy Lee said Wingard “is currently waiting for us to officially greenlight the movie, but we have a cast in place. I think it’s been reported but I don’t remember yet, I’d have to check the site, so I don’t want to say anything yet. But it’s a movie we’re planning on making this year. It’s definitely for adults. It is zero chance it will be below an R-rating.

John Oliver Drags Hollywood for Whitewashing PLUS Their Main Story on Abortion



John Oliver drags Hollywood in a segment called, "How is this still a thing?" Regarding the Oscars, he says that "the nominees are whiter than a Yeti in a snowstorm fighting Tilda Swinton." Noting that the lack of representation is related to the lack of roles for black actors, Oliver says that even when there are roles for POC, they often go to white actors. Notable examples include Angelina Jolie in "A Mighty Heart", Tom Cruise in "The Last [Fucking] Samurai," and most recently Emma Stone as a half-asian woman in "Aloha."

He also notes two recent movies where an Australian and British dude play lead roles in "Exodus: Gods of Egypt" and a Scottish dude plays an Egyptian God in Gods of Egypt. He tears down Ridley Scott's argument that he couldn't get his dumb movie financed if it starred someone named "Mohammed So and So" by pointing out that no one knows who the guy pictured above on the left is.

Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony sides with Demi's Capitol Hill, Not Impressed Tweet



-After Kesha's mother happily announced her thanks for Taylor Swift donating $250,000 for Kesha's legal fees, Demi Lovato tweeted that she personally wasn't impressed unless it was taken to Capitol Hill or tweeted
-Normani liked Demi's tweet today, siding with her and against Taylor

-Before news of the donation, Lauren said she loved Demi for her 2:30 AM rant about self-proclaimed feminists not speaking up rant

It should also be noted that Lauren and Normani were basically the only artists under Sony who stood up for Kesha, despite having to work with Dr. Luke on 5H2.

Source: Twitter 1, Twitter 2, Twitter 3

It was very brave of Normani and Lauren to speak out in the first place and ok Lauren tweeted that before Demi went on her rant after Taylor donated, but Normani sis no need to like that because of personal shit with Taylor and Camila. This is about KESHA, not anyone else being impressed.

The One Where The Friends Cast Reveal Behind The Scenes Stories



Lisa, Jennifer, and Courteney had lunch together every single day for ten years, and ate the same food everyday. Courteny called it a "Jennifer salad." "I tossed it," Jennifer explained. "She has a way with it," Courteney added.

The cast did not sign a contract saying they would not sleep with each other. Or at least Lisa Kudrow was not asked to sign one.

Jennifer auditioned for Monica and Courteney auditioned for Rachel. Lisa Kudrow had to audition in front of Jimmy Burrows before she got the part.

Lily Allen Comes For James Bay





  • After the BRITs' nominees were announced, Allen called out the awards/industry in now deleted posts saying they were "blind to black talent" and something that "Alan Patridge would approve of".

  • James Bay was asked about it by The Mirror and that's what he said: “It’s varied nominations. It’s about music. I don’t know why she’s had to go down that route. I can’t think of her last album, [or] when she last released something."

  • Lily heard that he was talking shit and took it to twitter: "A fellow named James Bay dodged a question about lack of diversity at the Brits has apparently labeled me entirely forgettable. I must admit if not heard of him until I saw my feed this morning, I have now listened to some of his music and seen his hat. He shares a name with the most standard, basic and least flavorsome herb, which I found both fitting and amusing."

  • His PR has since then released a statement saying that his words were misinterpreted.

7 (2) Facts You Didn't Know about HGTV's "Fixerupper"

 photo gaines_zpse2yasqy0.jpg


You Don't Get to Keep the Furniture

All the furniture in the house at the time of reveal is staging. The client can choose to purchase whatever pieces Joanna pulls from her stock, but at that point, budget is already pretty tight. [I'm assuming that's why she has her carpenter build one piece for each house, it's the one thing they get to keep]

They Makeover the Entire House

Since you only see the rooms that get staged, people were wondering if they left the rest of the house as is. It's a complete makeover, but the additional rooms could get as little as fresh paint and new carpet/hardwood.

Read the rest of the list at the source!

Demi Apologizes?


ddlovato As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn't say. And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place. Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories. They're more likely to face retaliation and harassment than to see justice being served. Especially women. It baffles me that when it comes to serious issues like equality and abuse, too often women are not taken as seriously as men. All I want to see is women coming together and actually making a difference. A real change and shift in society. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others , and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters. Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it's okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.

The award created in honor of former Senator Edward Kennedy gives $100,000 to “a new play or musical that enlists theater’s power to explore the past of the United States.”

In other news, Lin has come to the rescue of the Drama Book Shop in NYC (a long-standing resource for the theater community and where he wrote a lot of In the Heights), after a burst pipe caused serious damage to the store and a large section of inventory. He has made public appeals on Twitter and dedicated this past Saturday's #Ham4Ham show to it:

The Flash: 2x15 promo pics, the cast this week on social media, and news/spoilers

News and spoilers about Earth-2, Killer Frost, and Jesse Quick!

Earth-2 Ftw.
-Flash Exec Producer Todd Helbing recently confirmed news about Earth-2, Killer Frost, and presumably the Man In The Iron Mask. [So have we seen the last of the glorious, retro, stylish and superior Earth, Earth-2?]
In Banned Source, reported in Non-Banned Source Fashionstyle.com, Helbing admitted that we will thankfully see more of Earth-2, in fact we will "see quite a bit" of the much superior of all Earths, the Earth we all deserve, in upcoming episodes.

We will also find out what went down with Killer Frost (aka 'She Who Keeps Blue Lipstick Companies In Business'), who was last seen facing Zoom to save Jesse Quick and Jesse's super hot dad 'Saviour of Central City' Dr. Harrison Wells, Jesse's dad's qt boyfriend Cisco Ramon, also some other people.
Also, presumably, the mysterious Man In The Iron Mask?


She's His Joy - She's Jesse Quick.
In an interview with PopCultureDaily, Violett Beane, who plays Earth-2's very own Zoom Survivor 'Jesse Quick', answered a few questions about The Flash, and dropped a MAJOR spoiler for the future of her character on the show, [which probably some people already guessed, but confirmation is fun, right?]

Can you give us a little background to 'The Flash; and your character Jesse Quick?

Jesse Wells is the daughter of Earth-2 Harrison Wells and soon-to-be speedster Jesse Quick. She’s quick-witted and super smart, but she’s been held captive by Zoom for the last few months. By the end of the last episode, Jesse is finally saved and returns to Earth-1 with the Flash team. In these next episodes, you’ll see Jesse try to assimilate to her new “home” and get to know Barry and the gang.

CONFIRMED! JESSE CHAMBERS WELLS WILL BECOME ACTUAL SPEEDSTER JESSE QUICK.

Is Chris Carter’s Millennium the Angel to The X-Files’ Buffy?




  • The author starts by saying that Millenium was a flop by not having catchy phrases like "I want to believe" or " the truth is out there" that the X-files used.

  • Then goes to say it is unfair to compare it to the X-Files and it should be seen as a Buffy/Angel type of relationship.

  • Millenium reputation, like Angel's, remains linked to its predecessor, but its  legacy is not as easy to explain, as some consider Millenium a  masterpiece, an hybrid between science fiction and horror; while others consider it a horrible mistake.

  • He further argues the mythos and the whole feeling of the series grows when Chris Carter decides to focus on the fifth season of the X-Files (and the movie) in its second season, leaving  Morgan and Wong as the new showrunners, just like Angel's second season.

  • It basically argues that the show was cancelled way too soon.

-She was reportedly completely blindsided and is quite devastated by the breakup, her attempts to get back together have been noped.
-They met on the shoot of her video in 2014, her 1st relationship after Cory.
He was rumored to be a gigolo, no word if he goes back to his day job now.
-Breakup comes as a surprise as she was apparently gushing about how Cory would love the guy and how good they were together on some podcast.
-Her sources say he gave no reason(douchey af), and are calling him an opportunist who used her and dumped her(smear campaign clearly), his sources say they've been hot and cold for a while.(more plausible)
-They say he was jealous of her sucess.(On twitter he seemed to imply she had an ego, dominearing personality)
-Just last month there were rumors of him engagement ring shopping. Maybe that's why they fell through?
-She's leaning on her girls like Becca Tobin (the other blonde from Glee that's not the ones you know) and Emma Roberts.
