Christoph Waltz calls Nigel Farage a 'Rat' for resigning after Brexit



source

“Of course the head rat would leave the sinking ship.”

“It’s inevitable, they try to dress it up as a heroic exit…no, it’s conceding defeat, it’s putting the tail between their legs and, as rats do, leave the sinking ship. Leave the mess for others to clean up and retreat into some profitable other business. That shows you how despicable these people are — they can’t even stand up for what they caused.”

Oscar Pistorius is sentenced to 6 years in prison for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp




He was initially convited of manslaughter and got a five-year sentence, it was changed to murder last December on appeal. He was taken immediately to jail, his lawyers say they will not appeal.

Judge Thokozile Masipa said mitigating circumstances, such as rehabilitation and remorse, outweighed aggravating factors for deviating from the prescribed 15-year sentence.

He is legally obliged to serve half of his new term before being eligible for parole. He already served one year from his first sentence.

Judge Masipa also said there was "no indication" that the victim was in an abusive relationship or this was a case of "gender violence".

Many have expressed shock at Pistorius's sentence, which is much less than the prescribed minimum for murder (15 years).

Marvel reveals new Iron Man will be a 15 year old black girl



In an exclusive interview with Time, Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis has revealed that when Tony Stark leaves the Iron Man suit after Civil War II a new character named Riri Williams will take it over. The character was referenced in a recent issue of Iron Man as an MIT student who reverse engineered the Iron Man suit.

In the interview Bendis also talked about how some people have reacted badly to Marvel introducing more diverse characters, referencing Miles Morales and Kamala Khan, and that basically the people who whine are racist and that from his perspective the reception has mostly been positive since people want representation and he wants to continue to make comics look more like the real world.

The article also notes that while Riri will be using the Iron Man suit she will probably be using a different name.

gaga: ‘what i am as gaga is what other people think gaga is’





- gaga discusses “gaga,” in part, being a character, during variety and pbs’ “actors on actors” series
- "what i am as gaga really is, at this moment, what other people think gaga is. it’s not necessarily what i am entirely. even if i feel like gaga, meaning this stronger individual person of myself that i discovered being young in new york, loving music, meeting with young artists, working with musicians, with writers, studying this scene and being involved in the lifestyle."
- "it is a bit of a creation, but i think actually, at this point now, it’s other people that have created, through what i have made, their perception of what gaga is as a separate entity from me"

Adam Lambert feat. Laleh "Welcome To The Show" music video



"Sometimes it’s terrifying to face your true, whole self, stripped of any pretense. The good, the bad, the cracks, and the scars. I am no stranger to the feeling of not liking myself. Once I get past my own body image issues, I realize that I sometimes also neglect my own spirit. Living in a world filled with so much hatred sometimes makes cultivating self-love a very difficult task. I have always struggled with this as I’m sure many of you have. My path is a kind of paradox in that I get to share my craft with the world, but also be willing to throw myself to the wolves. To dare to be different, but still wanting to be accepted. There is vast beauty to be found in life’s contradictions. This non-binary reality allows us to lead happy, expressive lives, and yet this very freedom comes with great risks. I’m not alone in this limbo. Through my art, I pledge to bring empathy and courage to anyone who has been made to feel unworthy or ashamed while daring to be themselves."  -- read more of his statement here in full

Messi guilty of tax fraud, still avoids prison

Messi, golden boy of football, was sentenced to 21 months in prison for tax fraud.

_90305765_gettyimages-537561844.jpg

His father, Jorge Messi, was also given a jail term for defrauding Spain of €4.1m (£3.5m; $4.5m) between 2007 and 2009.

They also face millions of euros in fines for using tax havens to conceal earnings from image rights. However, neither man is expected to serve time in jail.
Under the Spanish system, prison terms of under two years can be served under probation.


As well as the jail terms, Messi was fined about €2m and his father €1.5m. They made a voluntary €5m "corrective payment", equal to the alleged unpaid tax plus interest, in August 2013.

They have, of course, appealed to the decision.

Following up on this post!

The BBB gave Kylie Cosmetics a failing grade after receiving 137 complaints in the past 9 months and seeing no resolution for any of them. After yesterday's reports about the rating, the BBB changed the grade from F to C, then to B-, and then removed the rating altogether.

Young Thug: There's no such thing as gender



"Young Thug developed a reputation for his unconventional rapping technique and an approach to style that subverts traditional hip hop imagery. As we wrote in our cover story with the rapper, “Thug’s knack for self-accessorising has earned him plenty of attention: on any given day, he could be wearing leopard-print dresses, pleather baby tees, miniskirts, circular Elton John sunglasses or draped, unconventional tunics.” source

TNT Renews Animal Kingdom For S2, TBS Renews Wrecked (S2) and Angie Tribeca (S3)




Yes you should watch Animal Kingdom. It's not really like the movie beyond its name or Sons Of Anarchy other than dealing with a bunch of criminals and their crazy "mother". It's got a great cast (particularly Ellen Barking & Shawn Hatosy), is never boring and is better than most of the summer crap that's out there. #WatchAnimalKingdom

"Hands: A Song for Orlando" - How the all-star tribute came together




- Justin was on a tour bus songwriting for Selena Gomez in Miami when the tragedy happened. He felt compelled to volunteer at an Orlando LGBT center & was told they needed as many hands as possible.

- it was important for them to include different voices from all genres and backgrounds considering the attack was against mostly the Latino LGBT community

- vocals include Rupaul and from the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles

- finished up in three nights

- “If a million hands can build a wall/A million hands can break it down" was definitely on purpose and an illusion to Donald Trump's crazy rhetoric





Purchase “Hands” @ http://smarturl.it/HandsTribute

Proceeds from the sale of the new tribute single in the United States will benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, and GLAAD.
