king cobra review: franco at his lurid best in gay porn shocker

- franco gives his most unhinged performance since spring breakers
- king cobra reunites franco with the director of i am michael for another gay-themed narrative based on real events
- former disney star, garrett clayton, portrays the innocence of sean paul lockhart really well. clayton really does a good job at representing the wavering emotions mixed with a certain sense of naivety
- the acting is uniformly strong. alicia silverstone brings a lot of heart to her few scenes as lockhart’s deceived mother.
- and while clayton makes for a charismatic lead, it’s franco who steals the picture - the actor goes no holds barred

Star Wars sequel should have gay characters, GLAAD says (and why that won’t happen)

GLAAD released a new report urging “Star Wars” to introduce gay or lesbian characters into the franchise.

The push comes after an annual survey of depictions of LGBT characters in major studio releases and Disney was one of two studios to feature no gay or lesbian characters in any of their films last year. The other was Paramount.

The movie was praised for featuring a female and a black lead, but they say the diversity push needs to be more expansive.

Out of the 126 major movies released last year, only 22 of them (17.5%) featured LGBT characters. No change from 2014.

And the one reason that won't happen is [Spoiler (click to open)]fear

They are scared of the marketing to foreign audiences, especially in Russia and China, where LGBT citizens face discrimination, legal challenges and violence.

During the press tour for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” J.J. Abrams made the point that he wanted the new franchise to be more inclusive, saying “It’s important people see themselves represented in film”.


Jennifer Hudson: "My presence [in "The Color Purple] was used for my celebrity, not my talent."

This morning, Jennifer Hudson failed to snag a Tony nomination for The Color Purple while her co-stars Cynthia Erivo (queen of her category) and Danielle Brooks did. Her response (now deleted) was as follows:

Things Aren’t Looking Great for Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ or ‘Most Wanted’

As show renewal/cancellation news are going to start soon, things aren't looking so hot for Marvel shows 'Agent Carter' and 'Most Wanted'. While Hayley Atwell's new ABC show 'Conviction' has a strong chance of being picked-up The Hollywood Reporter says that 'Agent Carter' is considered "Highly Unlikely" to continue. Meanwhile for the Agent's of Shield spin-off show 'Most Wanted' there are mixed reports coming in from The Hollywood Reporter and Variety with one saying it has a “very good chance of going to series,” while the other says “Most Wanted has been cooling and some say it’s not considered the lock it once was.”

Demi Lovato Covers Latina Magazine: Talks Music, Hillary Clinton, Capitol Hill & Wilmer

Some notable quotes and tidbits from the interview:

  • “I don’t care about radio hits. When you try hard for that, it doesn’t happen. It’s songs like ‘Stone Cold’ that I don’t get tired of singing on tour. I get tired of singing ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ and even ‘Confident’ already. I have yet to reach my peak, and also, my voice is better now than it was a year ago. Now I can show people what I can do.” She says her next album will have a "soulful" vibe and deal with her experiences surrounding death.
  • “When I dated white guys, it wasn’t as passionate as my relationship with Wilmer. Maybe that’s just Wilmer. But I do believe that Latin people are just more expressive, more passionate with their emotions. He’s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he’s protective and he cares so much and loves so hard. I’ve been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also my best friend.” (gurl...)
  • On Kesha vs. Dr Puke: "I thought it was extremely brave of a pop star in the industry to come out and talk about that. I do believe it’s very fucked up that he’s not letting her go, aside from all of the other stuff. I think women artists shouldn’t compete — we have to support each other.”
  • On supporting Hillary Clinton: “The reason ‘I’m with her’ is because out of everybody running, she is the most qualified and she will get shit done. I can hopefully help open people’s eyes to how much racism is affecting our country and now infiltrating it in a sense where we might have an incredibly racist Republican candidate.
    It’s terrifying to think that families can be, and sometimes are, separated on a daily basis.”

  • On mental health care: “We have to figure out something as a country about how we get mental health care to be as accessible as physical health care. When you take things to Capitol Hill, it’s tangible and you really feel like you’re making a difference. And if you’re having conversations that are uncomfortable and you’re sharing your story of being vulnerable, people relate. It’s harder for people to relate to you as an artist if you only talk about your love life.”

    Khloe No Longer Has A Relationship with Caitlyn

    -Last Sunday's KUWTK shows Khloé doing a press tour in NYC for some useless product and then receives a series of angry texts from Caitlyn Jenner. They concerned an interview Khloe gave to Howard Stern where she discussed her issues with Caitlyn's transition, which didn't go over well with the 66-year-old asshole.

    -Caitlyn asked Khloe that the fam "stick together", which gets Khloe mad re: Vanity Fair article where Cait claimed she was “mistreated” by Kris and that the reason for their divorce was “20% gender-related and 80% Kris’s fault.”

    -Kris tries to clear things up but the episode just shows Caitlyn dismissing Khloe's concerns saying Cait's comments were "not terrible". "This is not intentional, you're making this so hard," Kris tearfully tells Caitlyn. "You were her father. You were her dad since she was five years old. Give her a break."

    Bad Moms | Official Trailer

    In this new comedy from the writers of The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

    ONTD Original: Vocalists who are better than you think they are + guides to vocal pedagogy

    Hello ONTD! As a continuation to the lovely revertigo's "Five Vocalists who Aren't as Great as People say They Are" post, I've made one about underrated vocalists on ONTD and for most included, in general. Like revertigo, I also got help from vocal coach AhMin33 on twitter who is also an admin at kpopvocalanalysis. In addition, I also asked for help from bIacksoshi on twitter or thevocalvortex on tumblr.

    The vocalists included in the main list will all qualify under kpopvocalanalysis's standards as at least Above Average. That would be higher than any vocalist included on the overrated list, who's best technique wise was Ariana Grande who is Average to Above Average. Every vocalist included on both the main and honorable mentions list has been regarded as someone who "can't sing," "a whisper vocalist," or a worse vocalist than someone far inferior to them in technique.

    Since this may be confusing, I included a guide that should explain terminology, how notes work, technical pros and cons, and how supported notes sound vs unsupported ones. This video from mrskinnyjeanz3 is also really great on identifying different types of strain and support.

    Note: This is purely on vocal technique, NOT tone, emotion, personality or how problematic a person is.

    Britney Spears faces off in court with former hanger-on

    Britney Spears was forced to testify in a court ordered deposition for a frivolous civil suit brought on by self professed former "manager" Sam Lutfi. He claims that he is owed unpaid managerial fees and is also suing Spears' father for punching him in the chest once eight years ago.

    Spears' team of lawyers pleaded with the judge to not force Britney to be deposed in the same room as Sam as he could intimidate & compromise her testimony. However the judge refused & ordered her to testify with Lutfi present.

    Recap: Who is Sam Lutfi? Read Here. You might recognize the name as he was also linked to Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes during their troubled times.

    Constance Wu Calls Out Hollywood- and Kimmy Schmidt- for Whitewashing

    There's currently a hashtag trending on twitter called #whitewashedOUT (which was started by Keith Chow of Nerds of Color, Ellen Oh and Margaret Cho) chronicling Hollywood's tendency to whitewash Asian characters (recently, Tilda Swinton and ScarJo's films were taken to task, notably by George Takei).

    Constance Wu, awesome woman and lead actress on Fresh Off the Boat, shared her story and came for Kimmy Schmidt, which did an episode in their new season making fun of SJWs/activists and Asian culture. And she didn't wuss out- she @-ed them.

    Dammn Baby Teasers!

    The original Queen of Whispering, Scamnet; Mrs. Jack-Your-Funds if you're nasty, is back with teasers for a new video from her incredibly well-crafted and incredibly underpromoted 2015 release, Unbreakable. It looks sleek, and features a diverse roster of dancers!

    Perhaps she thinks the ensuing uproar will distract from the recent cancellation of her world tour or that her timeless strut will hold us over while she ventures off into one more Escapade.mp3, motherhood. Who am I kidding? Of course it will!
