Moana will not have a love interest + Dwayne Johnson will sing a song written by LMM




Set 2,000 years ago in the South Pacific, Moana is the story of the titular 16-year-old girl, voiced by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, who goes in search of a banished demi god named Maui (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) in order to, naturally, save the world.

Moana doesn’t have a love interest in this story and that it’s a film about the heroine finding herself.

Dwayne Johnson sings in the film with a song specifically written for him by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

A Guide To Everything 80s in Stranger Things

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


  1. Africa by Toto
    An Eighties staple, the song's release and rise to the top of the chart happened in February of 83, nine months before the show's plot starts taking place.

  2. Dungeons & Dragons
    The show relies heavily on the parallels and references to D&D, and even names the monster after one of the characters in the game itself. The way the kids navigate through the show while using references and attack strategies all circle back to this board game.

  3. Steven Spielberg
    Everything from set decoration nods, to specific shots and character dynamics has some kind of resemblance to Spielberg's movies - either produced or directed. Parallels between E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Poltergiest are all drawn in some way or represented within the time period that the show is set in.

  4. Stephen King
    There's many references to books and characters that Stephen King has produced. El herself is reminiscing of female characters in his book, and the creators of the show, The Duffer Brothers, have been very straightforward about King's influence on the show and even the narrative itself. The title credits alone, along with the show's graphics and fonts are all a throwback/nod to King's novels.

Drake disses Joe Budden/Future is basically a no-show at Dallas #summersixteen show



- Drake said our crowd had good energy, so he should've let Joe Budden come out and do "Pump it Up".

Collapse )

- The show was kind of a mess. They released set times w/ 3 different edits. DVSN was supposed to be on @ 7, Future @ 7:30, & Drake @ 9:30. DVSN FINALLY came on at 9:30pm then Drake came on at 10:30ish.

-Future DID decided to bless us with his presence for his joint tour and only performed 5 songs in the middle of Drake's set.

- It was a good time, but ppl were pissed because we basically sat there for 3 hours and watched them set up the stage, and then Future skipped his whole set and only came out to give Drake a breather (which was not the case for the Austin show the night before).

- Drake was great, but I felt like he did too much from "Views". He does kinda touch on his entire discography though. I was having way too much fun to take any pics or vids of my own.

ILD - oscar isaac

Oscar Isaac talks about the kind of man he is in a new interview.



" ... I certainly think about how to be better and how I came to be how I am and the circumstances around me. I think it’s healthy to have an element of self-awareness and understand how you’re perceived by others."

- Talks about how he looks up to his mother.
- Mentions what appears to be a slight obsession with the game Street Fighter V
- Says he's afraid of random acts of violence
- The most difficult thing he has done is "existing."
- Says he wept when he saw the video of Philando Castile.

"Farts. Come on, they’re funny. They’re just so silly-sounding. They’re the great equaliser. Everybody farts."

M-Train™ Talks About Her Transition into Rapping



- The Nantucket born raptress recently talked to Notion Magazine about transitioning away from the signature doo-wop sound of her one-hit wonder single, 'All About That Bass'.

- She told Notion, “I kept writing doo-wop thinking that was right and the label turned around and said, ‘You’re doing what everyone expects you to do. Why don’t you be the songwriter you say you are and shake it up?'”

- She and her record label's idea of 'shaking it up' was a completely new sound for her: hip-hop!

- “We tried to put more urban into it — and I tried to rap more. I mean I did NOT expect to rap!” Trainor explained.

- “I was writing songs and one day I thought, ‘You know what? I’m just gonna rap on this one’ as a joke, so I tried it and was like, ‘Hang on… I can rap! I’m good at this! I have rhythm!'”

Fiona Apple's Debut Album 'Tidal' Turns 20


- Tidal was released when Apple was only 18.
- The album became popular at a time when "unapologetic, unabashed women in mainstream pop and rock" like Alanis Morrissette, Sheryl Crow, and the Lilith Fair set were experiencing their heyday.
- The "Criminal" video and her infamous "The World is Bullshit" acceptance speech led to Apple being variously labeled as "precocious," "a shrinking violet," "a moody teenager," and "an underfed Calvin Klein model" over the years.
- Apple's unguarded, confessional record set the precedent for the kind of emotional candor and accessibility we have come to expect from today's pop musicians.

Quinoa Princess Shailene Woodley didn't know last Divergent film would be a TV Movie

In your "the YA dystopian craze is dying" news, Lionsgate has decided the fourth and final installment of the Hunger Games/Harry Potter mashup would become a TV Movie. Meanwhile, not even Shailene Woodley, star of the franchise and Earth Mother Supreme, knew about it.
fcfc42a85b1a45769d6553eb7c462281.jpg


It seems the massive hype machine that convinced other studios to go all-in on adaptations similar to The Hunger Games, many thought the Young Adult dystopian novel fad would prove to be an across the board boon. Instead, the initial high returns for imitators like the Divergent and Maze Runner series gave way to weakly-received sequels, and fans of the Divergent series were recently surprised to learn the saga would be concluding as a lower budget TV movie (likely without the original cast) after Allegiant tanked in the box office.

Apparently, no one was more surprised than Shailene herself. Speaking to press, she had this to say:

“Honestly, I was on a plane when all that happened and I landed, and I’m like ‘Whoa, what’s going on?!’ I need to talk and find out what the details are.”
