Netflix's Marco Polo is breaking barriers when it comes to diversity




*Marco Polo is only behind Orange is the New Black in Netflix viewership, demonstrating to studios that diverse shows reap rewards. It's the 10th most watched show on all platforms.
*It's not only the cast that's diverse-- actors have commented that it's the most diverse set crew they've ever dealt with
*97% of the show is Asian and other ethnic minorities
*The show creator is pursueing good story telling, and believes that good stories can be told with casts of any color-- and he's proud to be on the side of progress in Hollywood.

On a personal note, I just started watching it and was SO impressed by the inclusion of black actors in some of the Mongolian scenes. "It's the past! It's historically inaccurate to include other races!" said many idiots previously. Marco Polo instead just fucking cast everybody other than white people for every role they could.

ONTD, WHY THE FUCK AREN'T YOU WATCHING THIS SHOW?

Kimye cover Harper's Bazaar, talk Taylor Swift, nude pictures, and more.



-When asked what their favorite Taylor Swift song is, Kanye said, "For me? I don't have one." Kim said, "I was such a fan of hers."
-In response to what historical figures they identify with the most, Kanye said, "Us? Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe—all day. Next question."
-Kanye on "thinking": "Here's something that's contrary to popular belief: I actually don't like thinking. I think people think I like to think a lot. And I don't. I do not like to think at all."
-Kim More Kanye on "thinking": "I think about things to put them in a place where I don't have to think about them anymore. Say if I had a child with a really bad mom, I would have to think more than if I had a child with a good mom. I'm just doing my homework early. I told my trainer today, I'm a mix of a 14-year-old high schooler and a 60-year-old guy. It can never fall into the 30s or the 40s. It has to be 100 percent 60 or 100 percent 14, no in between."
-Kanye on Kim's nude selfies: "I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it's almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it's important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing."
-When asked who's more vain, Kim said, "I mean, me." and Kanye said, "Yeah, I think she has vanity. And with me, I don't give a fuck, bro; it is what it is. I'm the best—now what? I don't know if that's a vain statement. I don't particularly like photos of myself, though."

Justin Bieber Turned Down A Movie Role Due to Gay Sex Scene



Justin Bieber has allegedly been offered a role as a pop star in the upcoming film Uber Girl. He reportedly won't accept until a gay sex scene involving his character is taken out of the picture entirely.

Pete O’Neill, co-writer of the movie, told Page Six that Bieber won’t commit until his requested revisions are made.

“He won’t take the part unless the sex scene with him and one of the male backup dancers is taken out of the final script,” said O’Neill.

Edit: Justin's reps claim he was never offered the part but they don't dispute that he is a homophobe.

W Magazine gets the scoop on the making of Ciara's wedding gown


- Had to design and make the dress in less than 4 months
- There was a dress base, and then a half skirt that went on top that she could take off for the reception so she could dance more freely.
- The dress had "embroidery, appliques, beads, layers of tulle… I mixed Italian baroque patterns with like flying birds, butterflies, French wheat patterns [a symbol of good luck], and their initials on the back. And it had sleeves."
- Ciara said she was having a religious wedding and wanted something appropriate for that.
- Earth Wind and Fire performed at the wedding.

Director Cecile Emeke talks police brutality in the USA and the UK and not getting paid by HBO






For all the who?/tl;dr peeps:

Emeke is a black British director who became popular because of her Youtube doc series "Strolling" where she interviewed black Brits (and later black French people) about wide ranging contemporary issues from pop-culture to racism (you can watch for free HERE).

Because of her successful series HBO brought her onboard to direct an episode of Insecure. They underpaid her forcing her to live in terrible conditions. While living in LA she was arrested and detained by the police who drugged her and held her for her own "safety". After she was released she went home to London, had a nervous breakdown on the set of one of her other projects and the BBC people also called the police on her. Her family was fortunately able to help get her released. HBO still hasn't paid her for her work on Insecure and the BBC is trying to kick her off one of her projects.

Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation fails to keep promises

- Work was supposed to begin May 2015. Since then, the foundation has only purchased 6 plots of land, but have not begun any construction. The lots just sit empty.
- The Foundation itself seems to be having a rough moment. The head architect/director of innovation hasn't been involved for a long time, the CEO has left, and the Board of Directors has seen a turnover.
- Everyone in Kansas City is super bummed cause they could really use the help to turn the neighborhood around.

Sherlock creators cannot stress enough that #Johnlock is not happening


- At some point last year Moffat said, “Everyone wants to believe [Sherlock]'s gay. He’s not gay. He’s not straight. And Doctor Watson is very clear that he prefers women. People want to fantasize about it… But it’s not in the show.”
- At Comic-Con this year, he also spoke on a panel about the ways that homosexual relationships were portrayed in media (lol okay) some of the things he said apparently led Johnlock fans to believe that he was not only confirming the relationship, but also confirming that the two characters would lock lips in the Series 4 finale (who knows, that part might actually be true).
- In response, Moffat and co-writer Mark Gatiss had to set the record straight yet again.

- Moffat: “It is infuriating frankly, to be talking about a serious subject and to have Twitter run around and say, ‘Oh that means Sherlock is gay.’ Very explicitly it does not. We are taking a serious subject and trivializing it beyond endurance.”

- Gatiss: “He explicitly says he is not interested. Doesn’t mean he couldn’t be. Doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it. I’m a gay man. This is not an issue. But we’ve explicitly said this is not going to happen… No matter how much we lie about other things, that this show is going to culminate in Martin and Benedict going off into the sunset together. They are not going to do it. And if people want to write whatever they like and have a great time extrapolating that’s absolutely fine. But there is no hidden or exposed agenda. We’re not trying to f*ck with people’s heads. Not trying to insult anybody or make any kind of issue out of it, there’s nothing there. It’s just our show and that’s what these characters are like. If people want to do that on websites absolutely fine. But there’s nothing there.”

- Fans got pissed at that and went so far as to claim that the whole interview was staged to the point that Gatiss even tweeted that nah folks, they really said those things.

ONTD Original™: 10(12) Best Stripper Anthems

10 years ago, I was a broke college student looking for a way to pay the bills. I was working 2 jobs and still not making ends meet. I decided to get a job as a cocktail waitress(and dancer) at a popular strip club and boy did my world change. I was making more $$$ in one night than I was making in A MONTH. During my time in the industry, I became familiar with the dancers and their favorite songs. Here is my collection of the best stripper anthems.

Goop Has a Conscious Uncoupling with Goop




The 43-year-old was in LA where she told a business summit she wants to disassociate herself from her own lifestyle brand.

Speaking to the 2016 Sage Summit, the actress revealed she wasn't worried about any negative affect it was having on her name — rather SHE was holding IT back.

'In order to build the brand I want to build, its scalability is limited if I connect it to the band,' she conceded. 'So I always think how can I grow the brand, how can I separate myself from the brand and I think it's going to be more its own brand.

'More and more I would like it to be its own brand - my dream is that one day no one will remember that I had anything to do with it.'

Darude reveals that he's never actually experienced a sandstorm

Finnish DJ and producer Darude did a Reddit AMA, in which he revealed that he has never actually experienced a sandstorm before. Although he has never experienced a sandstorm, he says that he has been in a dust devil once.



Darude is most famously known for his massive trance hit "Sandstorm." The popularity of the song as background music for those who stream their video gaming on the Twitch.tv platform led to a meme that any question asking for the name of a song was replied to with the comment "Darude – Sandstorm." The song was also used in an April Fools' Day prank on YouTube last year.

Rockmond Dunbar Options 1950s-Set 'Soul on Bikes' About Black Motorcycle Club


Surprised Kurt Sutter isn't involved in this...well, not yet anyway! Rockmond Dunbar has optioned the book “Soul on Bikes: The East Bay Dragons MC and the Black Biker Set'. It is a biography offering an insight to a very little known bit of American/African American history.

The publisher's synopsis “Levingston and his colorful cast of misfits and comrades are an all-black, all-Harley, all-chopper group of motorcyclists who have found more than their fair share of violence and redemption on the battlegrounds of urban America–and their legacy is an important untold portion of African American history. ‘Soul on Bikes’ recounts the club’s adventures with humor, attitude, and, most important, soul.

In 2013, Harley Davidson put together a tribute to African American riders who have been a big part of the iconic brand since after the second world war. More info on that here and here (with videos).

Troian Bellisario is ‘Appalled’ by Taylor Swift's false feminism



When asked about the Kimye/Taylor Swift feud, she said the following: "Oh god, I have such an aversion to the Kardashians because I literally don't understand people's obsession with them and I don't want to accept them as our closest thing to a royal family. So I guess I would be Team Taylor Swift? However, I'm so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism. It seems like she's this person who's like, ‘Sisterhood!’ and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends. Is it possible to just be, like... this is a two-party system that I don't want to be a part of? Can I just say that? Can I say that I would choose the Green Party in this?"
