Tilda Swinton says her portrayal of the Ancient One is "not an Asian character"

When asked about the backlash and criticism of her Doctor Strange role, the Ancient One, who is a Tibetan man in the comics, Tilda Swinton says, "well, it's not actually an Asian character, that's what I need to tell you about it." Got that? No? "I wasn't asked to play an Asian character, you can be very well assured of that." One more for the road? "You just have to wait and see, because it's not an Asian character."

She just happens to be wearing Asian-ish clothes while in an Asian monastery playing a character who is Tibetan in the source material, but it's totes not whitewashing and did not deprive a Tibetan actor of a breakout role and did not deprive a minority that's very underrepresented in Western media of seeing someone like themselves because "it's not an Asian character". Mmm hmm.

franco is a little gay

"there is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press, and so the first question is why do they care? well, because i’m a celebrity, so i guess they care who i’m having sex with. but if your definition of gay and straight is who i sleep with, then i guess you could say i’m a gay c—k tease. it’s where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how i define myself. yeah, i’m a little gay, and there’s a gay james."


how gay are you?

Birdman GOES OFF on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club + The Breakfast Club Responds

  • Birdman stopped by the Breakfast Club this morning in order to address some rumors that have been talked about over the last few months involving Lil Wayne & Young Money.

  • Before the interview even started, Birdman walks in with his interview of 8 guys and starts popping off on Charlamagne, Envy & Angela.

  • Repeatedly tells them to "respect his fucking name* and "stop playing with my fucking name" consistently.

  • Charlamagne tries to buck up and bring up past interviews with Trick Daddy & Rick Ross, both of whom had issues with Birdman in the past.

  • Birdman says he came there to tell them to their faces instead of "rolling up on him in the club"

  • It's very awkward and a must watch.

  • Queen of the world, Kim Kardashian said enough is enough and sat down with Blac Chyna to hash out their issues involving Rob and the engagement.

  • Kim & Blac met and both agreed what was most important was Rob's happiness and getting out of the house and back into the world.

  • Kim also talked Chyna into sitting down with Kylie and hashed out their issues.

  • It obviously worked because yesterday they announced via Snapchat's they're besties/sisters.


ONTD, should we get Kim Kardashian to solve other hostile relationships in the world? Send her to talk to Putin!

Sophie Turner's archery skills + other X-Men promotion

Possibly this is a preview of Sansa's revenge on the Boltons in Season 6. Hitting Ramsay in the face with a suction cup arrow would sadly be a greater accomplishment than anything she managed to do in the revenge department last year.

All this plus corporate advertising cleverly disguised as a film tie-in. X-Men: Apocalypse has a promotional deal with Coldwell Banker, so if you want to buy the Xavier Institute, here's your chance (though it blows up a lot, so that may be a bad investment). There's more footage of the film here.

Kourtney Kardashian talks about working out and going gluten-free and dairy-free.

In an interview with E! Kourtney discussed what she's done to get herself back in shape after having three children.

On working out: "I think I take time for myself now to work out every day, which I never did—especially having three young kids. I just never made it a priority, and now it just makes me feel so much better—mentally and physically, just to really take that time. I know for my body, I need four to five days a week of working out. Khloe and I really push each other to do that. We do jump roping, but then in-between he'll have us do weights and squats and push-ups and sit-ups. A lot of things using our body weight. I couldn't even do one regular push up when we started with him. And now I can do so many. He has me doing full-body pull-ups."

On dieting: "I think what you put into your body with food and how much water you drink…I think it's just as important what you put inside as what you put on your skin. So right this second, we're doing gluten-free, dairy-free, which is so hard, and so are my kids. [Dairy's] in everything and so's gluten, it's so hard, so we're doing like six weeks. This doctor that we've been seeing like checks you after and says 'Ok you could do this or that.'"

On how the kids are handling this diet: "They like hate me. We went to Rob's birthday on Saturday night and he had this huge cake, and I brought them these gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate chip cookies. But I warned them in advance, and they were fine. Kim was like, 'North would never do that.'"

Camila uses feminism to defend her solo collab w/ Diplo + 5H pushes album 7/27 from 5/20 to 5/27

  • A Fifth Harmony fan commented that it was a shame that 4/5 of 5H were at Britney's Piece of Me concert, while Camila was fucking WITH, aka working/hanging out, with Diplo

  • Camila failed reading comprehension or social media speak (this would be ironic since she's been a twitter/tumblr stan since she was 14) and thought the fan meant fucking or having sex with Diplo for tracks

  • Camila used harmonizers and Fifth Harmony's endorsement of feminism and women supporting women to call the fan a hypocrite for "slut shaming her"

  • Realizing her feminism defense didn't work, she tweeted about how she can do whatever made her happy during her free time

  • Fifth Harmony also announced that they will push their album's release date from 5/20 to 5/27 because the number 27 is special to them since it was the day they were formed

  • Fans speculate that since they didn't originally schedule it then, they moved it, so they wouldn't have to compete with Ariana Grande or Blake Shelton's albums, who have sold better in the past

-Is excited to see Sophie Tuner take on Jean Grey.

ONTD Original: The Kardashians/Jenners and their Fetishism of Black Men

Take a seat, grab a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, some popcorn, whatever you would like. This is going to be a long post. Sit back and enjoy.

WARNING: This post features many headache inducing quotes and videos. If you have a very low tolerance for the Kardashians as well as a low tolerance for the hypersexualization of black bodies you may want to take precaution before entering this post. But, if you've been eager for a post exposing this Klan's sick fetishism of black men by all means come on in. Here we go, a compilation of some of the most racist, outlandish comments made by the Kardashians/Jenners regarding Black men over the years.

Fun fact: The entire family but Kourtney and Caitlyn are currently or allegedly in interracial relationships with black men/women. (Kylie and Tyga, Kendall and Jordan Clarkson (allegedly), Khloe and Brandon Jennings (allegedly), Rob and Blac Chyna, Kris and Corey Gamble, Kim and Kanye.)

So what do you say ONTD, are the Kardashians still harmless?
