Jon Stewart emerges from obscurity to rail against 'Fuckface von Clownstick' Trump

Jon Stewart did an interview with former Obama advisor David Axelrod at The University of Chicago's Institute of Politics for the podcast "The Axe Files"; has gained beard, has not lost his edge.

- Points out that the Trump approach makes sense if viewed through the prism of fear-mongering talk radio according to which America is on the brink of being overcome by rapists & murders
- Says the media needs to be harder on people being assholes / can't just say "Here's what people are thinking" but should point out that what they're thinking is often not ok
- Doubts that Trump is even an eligible candidate, calls him a thin-skinned, unrepentant asshole who can't take a joke and "has the physical countenance of a man and a baby’s temperament and hands."
- On Clinton: "Who?" Is not impressed, thinks she's a "very bright woman without the courage of her convictions, because I’m not even sure what they are."
- Clinton is still preferable to Trump, at this point Jon would vote for Mr. T. over Trump
- Drags the GOP's cognitive dissonance of apocalyptic rhetoric & counterproductive actions in Congress
- Drags the Democrats for not being able to make government efficient or effective & failing to prove how the government could actually make a difference in people's lives, by which the door was left open for a demagogue like Trump
- Criticizes the political elite for being better at campaigning than actual governance
- Points out that comedy and satire are an artistic expression, but should not be mistaken for actual activism
- Does not miss TV, hopes to release a video series project on HBO in September but can't make any promises
- Will be voting

Today on news u didn't know u needed: Thoughts on sexuality with Kristen Stewart

On life after Twilight:
“I didn’t carve out some path, I didn’t fight hard to be taken seriously. As much as the ‘Twilight’ series shaped and defined me for other people in a grand way, for me it wasn’t something I had to get away from. It was just a long experience on a movie that I liked.”

On her relationships:
"As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding, as soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest. I definitely found where I’m comfortable."

On her personal life leaking through tabloids:
“Women are so judgmental of each other, it’s very innate, instinctive, f—ed-up, animal-like. It was something that was a nuisance, me not defining [my sexuality] right now is the whole basis of what I’m about, if you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you."

Regarding personal relationships:
“When I was dating a guy, I would never talk about my relationships to anyone, I feel the same way now. I’m not hiding shit and I’m very obviously …” (w h a t)

Youngsters w/o labels:
"I had to have some answer about who I was, I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate. I was like ‘F**k, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to."

On embracing LGBTQ commn:
"As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding, as soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest. I definitely found where I’m comfortable."

Cannes: Disney Takes Latin America on ‘Not Cheating’

- Buena Vista Intl. has acquired Latin American rights for Ariel Winograd’s “Permitidos” (That’s Not Cheating), produced by the Disney-backed Patagonik in Argentina.
- The film, staring Argentine biggest star Lali Esposito, follows a modern couple who joke with friends about the idea of a “One Night Pass” — one night of passion with a famous star that would not be considered infidelity. Then the husband unexpectedly meets his “One Night Pass.” and falls in love with her.


This is amazing for Latin American productions, and also get ready for Lali to conquer the world! She's the next Shakira! (plus she's a good actress).

Jian Ghomeshi apologizes, Crown drops sexual assault charge

- Ghomeshi read a letter to open court today where he apologized to former CBC/Q employee, Kathryn Borel who accused him of sexual assault. He never addressed Borel directly and claimed he "failed to understand and truly appreciate the impact" of his conduct on Borel.
- Although he expressed "regret" over what happened his lawyer Marie Henein said the apology was no an admission of guilt.
- Claims that over the past 18 months, he has spent time reflecting on the incident and that he "had to come to terms with my own deep regret and embarrassment."
- In addition to the apology there was a peace bond stipulating that Ghomeshi can have no direct or indirect contact with Borel, that he must pay $500, not possess any weapons and keep the peace.
- Borel said she thought this would be the quickest way to get to the truth of what happened. As Ghomeshi pled not guilty, Borel also felt this would subject her to more abuse from him and she wanted that to stop. Said that for the three years she worked for Ghomeshi he made it clear he could do whatever he wanted to her and her body. Also says when she initially went to the CBC for help they said "When I went to the CBC for help, what I received in return was a directive that, yes, he could do this and, yes, it was my job to let him. The relentless message to me from my celebrity boss and the national institution we worked for were that his whims were more important than my humanity or my dignity."
- In March, Ghomeshi was acquitted by an Ontario Court judge on four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking, assaults alleged to have taken place against three women from 2002 to 2003. Ghomeshi's acquittal sparked protests and triggered outrage among many, including women's groups that felt the complainants were the ones put on trial.


ngl i used to be a fan of ghomeshi so all of this makes me feel sick to my stomach. where is frank castle when you need him tbh
also surprised they haven't changed the name of his show. you'd think the cbc would want nothing to do with it anymore.

Jordan Fisher (22) released a music video today for his first single "All About Us". Jordan has previously starred in Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie, Liv & Maddie, and most recently stole hearts as Doody in FOX's Grease Live!

"The video is really an introductory piece for me not only as an artist but also my visual direction and an overall sense of my music by stimulating the senses," Jordan tells VIBE. "The collaborative efforts that were made to create this piece allowed me to simply live in my aesthetic playground for a day. Being able to do that with dancers, choreographers, director and stylist, who all happen to be friends of mine, was a dream."

The Killers are Working with Ryan Tedder on #TK5

On working with other artists and The Killers:
I’m lucky that I get to work with the artists I do. I was involved in the Adele’s latest project off and on for two years. I’ve been involved with U2, and I did some stuff with The Killers in the last six months, and Grace Mitchell, this new artist from Portland, Oregon, is kind of blowing my mind right now. I have a conversation going with The Chainsmokers about collaborating, so all these songs that I’ve done with these artists, they play a role. I did some stuff with Ed Sheeran for his next album that plays a role. If you’re in the room with him for three days… He reminded me that it’s lyrics above all – you can have a great melody, you can have a great song, but those lyrics have to hit you in the gut, they have to be the most real, human, visceral thing. To go from Ed to Brandon Flowers in the same week, you get two completely different apertures.

Hollywood’s Lack Of Female Directors Is Under Investigation.

  • One year after the civil rights group (ACLU) sent letters to the federal government demanding an investigation into “blatant and rampant discrimination” in Hollywood, the federal agency that enforces employment discrimination laws has finally started the investigation.

  • ACLU SoCal and the ACLU Women’s Rights Project are pleased that the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs gave careful consideration to our findings and responded by launching a wide-ranging and well-resourced investigation into the industry’s hiring practices,” Melissa Goodman, director of the ACLU of Southern California’s LGBTQ, Gender and Reproductive Justice Project, said in a statement. “We are encouraged by the scope of the government’s process and are hopeful that the government will be moving to a more targeted phase.”

  • The ACLU also interviewed several female directors who shared stories of being told “we don’t hire women,” or “we tried hiring a woman once.”

Nikolaj Coster Waldau talks about Gods of Egypt white washing criticism in depth

In a recent interview with the Spanish magazine El Pais, NCW talked a lot more about the controversy of white leading actors in Gods of Egpyt

"We talked about two things here. On the one hand, there is the issue of diversity and people who are not represented in major films, a very important issue that should be discussed more. I think everything is changing at last, and it was time, no doubt about that. On the other hand, I think that criticism on Gods of Egypt and accusations simply relied on the title. If the film had been called "Gods at War" , it would have been more appropriate; and we would not be having this conversation.

- Taylor told Postmedia News that Curtis was their financial adviser and co-signed cheques. Taylor revealed he had been estranged from his wife when the alleged plot took shape.
- "My mother and I are super close," Vey said. "She came on the mothers' trip with me and she comes out quite a bit. My family — my brother and my sister — we're all tight. This is a time where we need to stick together as much as possible now. As much as it is me involved, it's more about my parents' situation, I will be there to support my mother.

French comedian drags Woody Allen to his face (and Roman Polanski, too, but Roman wasn't there)

I was going to use a gif of Woody Allen, but who wants to look at that creep? Anyways, that's Laurent Lafitte, a French actor, comedian and the host of Cannes Film Festival's opening and closing ceremonies. While MCing the opening ceremonies, Lafitte went in on Woody Allen, saying to the accused child rapist, "You've shot so many of your films here in Europe, and yet in the U.S., you haven't even been convicted of rape!" (It's a reference to Roman Polanski, who faces rape charges in the US, and thus shoots all his movies in Europe.) Gasps ensued from the stunned crowd of sycophants and shitheels. Other publications, such as banned source Deadline, even condemned Lafitte's comments for insulting Woody Allen. Fuck those people, and allez Lafitte!

"I learned so much working on this movie .Kevin really helped me come out of my shell as an actress. Being able to feel free and comfortable in your character’s skin is so important. I’m lucky I had such great people surrounding me to help me do that."

She will be starring in two French movies to be released this year: one called The Dancer in which she plays Isadora Duncan, and the other called Planetarium in which she co-stars as Natalie Portman's psychic sister.

Caitlyn Jenner has 'Sex Change Regret' Might De-Transition

Everyone's fave messy transwoman has considered de-transitioning, the author of a new book about the Kardashian family told TheWrap on Wednesday.

Ian Halperin, the author of “Kardashian Dynasty: The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family,” said that, while researching his book, multiple sources told him that the former Olympian had been miserable for months and has considered transitioning back to a man.

“One source confirmed to me Caitlyn has made whispers of ‘sex change regret,’ hinting she might go back to being Bruce Jenner,” Halperin said.

According to Halperin, multiple sources close to the Kardashian family told him that Jenner might revert back because she retains her interest in females.

“She’s still into women and wants to meet the right one,” Halperin recalled one friend saying.

A&R Veteran, Ron Fair, on Christina Aguilera; "She's My Elvis"

Ron Fair is a producer and talent scout, and has EP'd many artists' greatest hits (including Mary J. Blige, Lady Gaga, Vanessa Carlton, and The Pussycat Dolls). He's also noted for signing and mentoring the likes of Fergie and Nicole Scherzinger, but in a recent interview with Bravo, the one he attributes to framing his career is Christina Aguilera.

Ron Fair signed her when she was 17, and together, they've worked on 5 albums, and over 50 songs together, including "Lady Marmalade" and "Beautiful."

"She will always be my personal Elvis....She’s really the one who defines who I am."
