PR Expert Calls Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's Romance a Stunt


- Mark Borkowski, a PR practitioner of over 30 years, calls Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's alleged romance a publicity stunt.
- Says the "subtle" hints of their surprise romance (i.e. Liam's profile pic with Cheryl, matching rose tattoos) have PR written all over it.
- Notes that the complicated plan put it place by their respecitve PR firms makes a corporate merger look like a casual fling.
- Thinks that Liam and Cheryl want the attention because the shine on both their stars are waning, with One Direction on permanent hiatus and ratings for X Factor on the decline.
- Liam and Cheryl are under the same management company, Modest.

Right on cue, Liam has since changed his Instagram profile pic to a solo selfie and entertainment sites are now speculating if the couple have already broken up.

Iggy Azalea: I hate Azelia Banks, Katy Perry #careergoals




In her interview with Elle, Iggy said so many things!

She discussed how she didn't mean to dismiss #BlackLivesMatter, but she hates Azelia Banks and so was dismissing her. She has lived in the USA for 10 years now and has really seen how the system discriminates against black americans, but that USA politics are not easily felt across the world.

Says she doesn't want to sing about social issues, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar do that. She wants to be like Katy Perry, who no one cares about being political. She just wants to make a cute song that lasts 4 minutes and you have fun to.

Want to join Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea's squad? Here's how to do it!

Demi Lovato went on a "mini Twitter spree" last night for whatever reason, answering questions from her fans.

Jumping in on the action, Demi's BFF Iggy Azalea replied to Demi, telling her to come over or else she would egg Demi's house.



A fan of Demi's joined in on their Twitter conversation, asking what she needed to do in order to become a member of Demi and Iggy's squad.

Demi Lovato responded, telling the fan that in order to be part of her and Iggy Azalea's squad, she'd have to "say shit that pisses people off and give zero fucks."

Collapse )

Quickly trying to forget the giant flop that was the Confident era, Demi Lovato also revealed that she is hard at work on her new album. She tweeted, "Started on my fourth album already.. I wanna play new songs on tour." A fan corrected her, reminding her that she is actually working on her sixth album.

Liu Wen: China's first supermodel on non-traditional beauty



- Liu Wen is known as China's first supermodel, the first Asian model to be in a Victoria's Secret show, and the first Asian global face for Estee Lauder
- Got her start by entering an online modeling call to win a computer, the grand prize.
- Says that she never considered herself beautiful and still doesn't. She thinks that her personality carries her and that she has something called "chi ze" which is a bold presence or confidence.
- Says that in China, they value things like big eyes, pointy noses, and big lips, which she used to value as well.
- Talks a lot about having single eyelids instead of double, which is prized in Asia, and is happy she hasn't had surgery to change them since she wants girls to realize that different eye shapes are beautiful too.
- On the topic of her wanting to break stereotypes about Asian women being meek: "I hope that when people see Asian women, they realize we are all different. A lot of time with Caucasian people, they just group us together as Asian. But even within the different cities in China, people have different personalities. Likewise, if you’re from Korea or Japan. You’re talking to me right now, your family is from Taiwan, or someone else is from Chicago, and I’m from China. We look Asian, but we still look different. We don't look the same."

Princess Rowan Blanchard Covers Wonderland Magazine!

The Full Article is out Now! Read it Here!


"The downside to social media is it’s another place for girls to be made fun of and another way for girls to be degraded; the upside is that it’s also a way for girls — especially girls of colour, for example — to speak out and to take back some control."

"I see that a lot of girls will thank me and be like: ‘I wanna change the world, but I don’t have a platform…’ I think if there was one thing that I want, it’s less self-blame among girls for not being able to ‘write a show about it’ or ‘write a movie about it’ or ‘write an essay about it’. When you’re a girl all these things are against you, so just existing is a form of protest. You don’t have to do more than that; all the other stuff is extra."

Tina Fey jokes about Hollywood bullshit at Oscars


Tina Fey recently was interviewed on Howard Stern.

On the Oscars and political correctness and liberal preaching: "I’m so glad I live here [in New York City], because halfway through [the Oscars], I was like, ‘This is some real Hollywood bulls--t,’ Everyone’s telling me what to do. People are yelling at me about rape and corporate greed, but really, it’s climate change. I was like, ‘Guys, pick a lane. Like we’re going to fix everything tonight.’ And also, like, ‘You’re all rich. Why are you yelling at me about corporate greed?’”

On Leo Dicapro's Oscar speech: “I always am psyched when someone is articulate with those things because, let’s face it, actors are very stupid. But he’s so smart, and his speech was so cogent.”

On Leo being misogynistic for sleeping with younger women: “Is it misogynistic to sleep with a bunch of women who want to sleep with you? I don’t think it’s misogynistic. I think everybody there is up for it.”

Nikolaj Coster Waldau defends Sansa rape scene; implies Senator Claire McCaskill is "fucked up"

Nikolaj Coster Waldau spoke up about the Sansa rape scene and Senator Claire McCaskill's decision to quit the show because of it:
040214 nikolaj coster 1000

"Last year the season aired and there was a really traumatic scene with this beautiful young girl [Sansa Stark]. This senator in America [Claire McCaskill] suddenly proclaimed she was ‘done’ with watching Game Of Thrones. It just occurred to me: clearly the writers are doing a good job! People are forgetting to check themselves that’s it’s just a television show. These people are all made-up. Even when you come to the most horrific things that happen – and there are a lot of horrific things that happen in Game Of Thrones – we are unfortunately nowhere as horrific as what happens in some war zones around the world. But I guess it’s easier to get angry and upset about a television show than to be upset about the world in general. If our elected officials go out and try to make a stand politically by declaring they’re not going to watch a show, that’s fucked up".

One of the Asian kids at the Oscars, Estie Kung 8, speaks out.


- Oscar host Chris Rock did a skit where he introduced accountants of Pricewaterhousecoopers called “Ming Zhu, Bao Ling and David Moskowitz” and out walked three Asian (Chinese?) kids holding briefcases (Estie Kung is the girl on the right)
- after that, Rock joked, "If anybody is upset about this joke, just tweet about it on your phone, which was also made by these kids."

- Estie Kung's mother, Laura Kung, said that they only knew of the joke's premise at the audition where the children would be playing accountants. She said, "I did wonder, 'Why all Asians? But I assumed there was a bigger picture, a more complex joke given all the emphasis placed on diversity at the Oscars this year."
- the audition was super short, they only asked if Estie got stagefright and could pull a serious face
- her parents only heard the entire joke for the first time after rehearsals but they were locked in a contract. After talking to Estie, they decided that Asian presence was better than no Asian presence
- "This was not okay and should never have happened. But the angrier people are and more people talk about it, the better it will be moving forward. Estie hopes to keep acting and we all hope for a time when she can be on that stage to honor her achievement."
- Estie was not familiar with Rock's comedy (has not seen Madagascar) and did not understand the child labor joke

Where are They Now: The Cast of Top Boy

Top Boy was a 2 series crime drama about drug gangs in London. The series received positive reviews from critics but was ultimately canceled in 2013. Apparently rapper Drake loved the show so much, that he offered to help pay to get a 3rd season going. But he was turned down by the production company that still owns the rights. For now, it can be viewed on Netflix if you're in the right country.

The cast, made up of grime artists and actors, was praised by fans and critics alike.

Mad Max designer Jenny Beavan remains cooler than cool, doesn't care if no one clapped her Oscar win




  • Says that people were probably tired because its a long night, they clap a lot of people, and she took her time getting to the stage

  • Says she WAS applauded for the most part tho (and there is vid evidence of Iñárritu applauding her @ the source)

  • Was happier at the Costume Designers Guild anyway because it was filled with her peers

  • Was complimented by lots of people on her Immortan Joe jacket which was made of Vegan leather

  • I really do think things will all calm down, but the only thing I would like is for my outfit to have a positive effect on what women feel about themselves. You don’t actually have to look like a supermodel to be successful. If that could be a takeaway, I think that would be a good thing. It is really good to have a positive feeling about yourself, because then you can do anything.
