Oscar Winner Leonardo DiCaprio's Old Family Picture Sparks Debate

Just in time for International Women's Day...


Shortly after his Oscar win, Facebook page HistoryinPics shared a vintage family picture of young Leonardo DiCaprio with his parents. The photo allegedly taken in 1976, caught the attention of many because Leo's mom, Irmelin, grew armpit hair. The photo has sparked a debate on whether female armpit hair should be accepted or frowned upon.

Fact Checking this Week's People vs OJ Simpson



-It was actually Marcia Clark's former mother-in-law who leaked the nude vacation photos to the National Enquirer. Some private eye wanted to suck up to the Dream Team and tracked her down in Israel where they put her in touch with the publication. Marcia under went lots of unfair scrutiny, and it's true that Ito called a recess that day after seeing how distraught she was after the photos leaked.

-Darden and Clark did have some sort of thing during the trail though it never got sexual. He brought his Isley Brothers CDs to her house on one occasion. The trial made them sort of closer, and he did cheer her up after the photos leaked. Darden has said that he keeps getting asked if they got married to which he always says, "No."

-Ms Lopez was just as bad a witness in real life as on the show. No shrugging though. On the subject of witnesses, Bailey's questioning of Fuhrman on the show was very accurate to how it really happened. The transcripts even include ALL CAPSLOCK for emphasis.

-Bailey did try to pull a fake glove stunt which he got called out on, and Marcia did make a quip about it. The LA Times did go ahead and print a story about how Cochran had beat his first wife.

OOP-T! - Maria 'Cheater' Sharipova grand slammed by Meldonium & Dick Pound




*Meldonium's manufacturer says 4 - 6 weeks is the normal amount of treatment time, not 10 damn years
*Via Statement: 'Depending on the patient's health condition, treatment course of meldonium preparations may vary from four to six weeks. Treatment course can be repeated twice or thrice a year.'




* Dick Pound rightfully places the blame on Sharipova's shoulders
* Says Sharipova would've been informed beforehand that she was doing something illegal and that this is all suspicious
Quote: 'Running a $30m (£21m) business depends on you staying eligible to play tennis. You are taking something on a list, which you have known about for four months. I am sorry, that is a big mistake - of course she should have known'

Years and years's Olly Alexander interrupts performance from pain in the back :-(

Last night Years & Years were doing a show in Lausanne (Switzerland), Olly painfully sung during the whole show until the end of Desire and then had to stop the show because he pulled a muscle in his back (since the beginning apparently) and was in too much pain. So the crowd didn't get to hear the Toxic cover + King.

They'll be in Milano tomorrow, let's hope he'll be ok by then!

He tweeted this :






I was there and it was such a struggle for him, it was hard to watch. Hope you'll feel better soon Olly :-(

Azealia Banks finally dumps twitter

Azealia Banks is quitting twitter for good.

“Okay, today I’m finally making the decision to eject from social media,” she tweeted, “American media culture is honestly so fucking disgusting and junky and complaining about it is not going to change it."

“It’s time for me to say goodbye once and for all,” she added. “Just because I am American doesn’t mean I have to subject myself to such tastelessness. Americans have the WORST taste in everything. So my friends, it’s time to say goodbye once and for all to this account. This account will exist no more. Time for a bit of mystery…Goodbye.”

Unfreaking-believable! Primetime first! as two black actors star in BBC1's Undercover

Primetime first as two black actors star in BBC1's Undercover https://t.co/A9ekPP7lYQ

— The Guardian (@guardian) March 8, 2016

Apparently, this is the first time two black actors have been cast as leads on a primetime BBC Drama. It is usually one black actor or they co-star (always the bridemaid etc).

The series is written by the award-winning playwright Peter Moffat (not to be mistaken for Dr./Sherlock writer Stevne Moffat). It is about undercover police officers and death in custody. Jewish-Nigeria Princess Sophie Okonedo stars as high-flying lawyer about to become the first black director of public prosecutions. Adrian Lester plays her husband and the father of her three children.

Moffat was quoted as saying this in regards to BBC's lack of diversity - “even the BBC, which is fairly full of liberal thinking folk (don't get me started on this - OP!), hasn’t got round to sorting this stuff out”.

Labor MP Chi Onwurah also added, that 15 years after Greg Dyke declared the BBC "hideously white", there's still a way to go. She said; “I think it’s brilliant but at the same time also slightly ridiculous that the BBC has discovered that there are professional black families,”. She would also like for people of BAME background (that Black, and Minority ethnic) in roles behind the scenes as well.

And... no, the C4/E4 shows you watched based on tumblr hyping them is not indicative of british TV's diversity as a whole.
