Watch Hope Solo's Reaction on Her Punishment After "Coward" Comment

- Soccer player Hope Solo had a TV crew following her when she first learned that her contract with the U.S. National team was being terminated.
- Hope was filmed saying: "Seventeen fucking years and it's over, Six months suspension. No pay. Terminated contract. Effective immediately."
- While many agree with the decision, some wonder if Hope was punished more harshly than Ryan Lochte a male athlete would have been.

Early Reviews/Word on La La Land

[So, was it well-received this morning in Venice?]

Todd McCarthy/The Hollywood Reporter: "Not perfect, but dazzling and distinctive all the same."

Owen Gleiberman/Variety: “La La Land” isn’t a masterpiece (and on some level it wants to be). Yet it’s an exciting ramble of a movie, ardent and full of feeling, passionate but also exquisitely — at times overly — controlled. It winds up swimming in melancholy, yet its most convincing pleasures are the moments when it lifts the audience into a state of old-movie exaltation, leading us to think, “What a glorious feeling. I’m happy again.” [Note: Avoid this review, unless you want basically bullet point spoilers for the film.]

Fionnuala Halligan/Screen Daily: "Starry-eyed and saturated with pure romance, La La Land re-visits many of the narrative themes of Damien Chazelle’s debut, Guy and Madeline On A Park Bench, for a jazz-infused, jewel-coloured musical infectiously scored by Justin Hurwitz. Suffused with love – for Los Angeles, the films of MGM’s golden age and Jacques Demy, and its intensely appealing star-crossed leads Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling – Chazelle’s dream-like follow-up to Whiplash is as la-la-light as its title, tap-dancing its way into the hearts of incurable romantics everywhere."

Alonso Duralde/The Wrap: The musical is as malleable and eclectic a genre as any other, and Chazelle reminds us how effectively it can be applied to intimate moments as well as huge ones... Fans of musicals will adore this sparkling cinematic love letter...

John Bleasdale/Cine Vue: La La Land is the fizziest, most achingly romantic of movies. Chazelle does for musicals what Tarantino did for guns.

Jessica Kiang/The Playlist: Sometimes you don’t know what you need until you get it. And the world, cinema, history, art, nostalgia, sincerity, joy, music, love, creativity — everyone needs Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” right now. 2016 needs “La La Land.” A primary colored explosion of pure delight that revels in both the manufactured perfections of studio-era Hollywood musicals and in the imperfections and flubbed lines of real life, and finds eternally charming, often spectacular ways to occupy the largely unmapped territory between the two, the film is a huge risk and an absolute triumph. But it also manages to be intimate, to feel like a secret whispered into your ear, and yours alone. And the secret is that while you’ve been living your life and thinking movie musicals were pretty much irrelevant to it, you’ve actually been living in your own musical the whole time.

Tyga's Ferrari gets repossessed while he's out looking at Bentleys with Kylie

According to reports, yesterday Tyga drove his Ferrari to a car dealership to look at some new Bentleys. While he and Kylie were inside speaking to the dealer the repo man showed up on the lot with a spare key for the Ferrari and repossessed the car due to Tyga missing multiple car payments. Needless to say Tyga did not end up buying a Bentley and he had to call a friend to pick up himself and Kylie as they were stranded.

Becky G to play 'Sara' in full feature film 'Miles' - @MilesMovie

Written and directed by Oliver Daly, Miles is a contemporary nod to Steven Spielberg's classic E.T., about blurring the boundaries of humanity and technology. The film will be set in California’s teenage off-roading motocross world.

Becky G announced on Twitter that she will be playing the girlfriend 'Sara' in the full feature film.

MILES is the story of a teenage dirt bike rider who stumbles upon M.A.X., an escaped prototype of the most advanced military creation in history. Miles explores M.A.X.'s abilities and the creature quickly develops into something fiercely loyal, intelligent and nearly unstoppable.

Colton Haynes accepts the HRC Visibility Award in tears

The recently out actor was presented with the Human Rights Campaign‘s Visibility Award and in an emotionally charged speech, he said: “Earlier this year, I guess my coming out, it was a bit splashy for people. It wasn’t very surprising for those who already knew me the best…But that’s how entertainment works. It seems to make a bigger deal of everyone’s personal decisions.” Colton also noted the event's importance to him: “I’m asked to play so many different roles as an actor. Tonight I can actually be myself for the first time. It feels incredible.”

Jamie King's son had heart surgery, Taylor donates to cause + Taylor walking post.

Dear all- at 20 weeks our son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA. He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family. Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused. @taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving. As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues. TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength. Our gift back is to share our story that anyone that is going through this is not alone, we understand & want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible. Leo Thames is the strongest, healthiest boy because of this team. He will live a full and whole life & never have to look back. Thank you Taylor & to EVERYONE listed on this letter we love you. With gratitude and humbleness 💜 Jaime and Kyle

Gymnastics Legend Vera Caslavska dies of pancreatic cancer at age 74

  • Vera Caslavska is one of the best gymnasts of all time. She has won 2 Olympic gold medals in the all around and is the only gymnast to have a gold medal on every single individual event.

  • Vera is known for her beautiful gymnastics, as well as her famous political protest at the 1968 Olympic Games.

  • Before dominating and winning 6 medals (4 gold, 2 silver) at the Mexico City Games, Vera had her gym taken away during the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. She trained in the Movaria forests, using logs for beams, potato sacks as weights/a vault, and tree branches as uneven bars. She was also in hiding in the Sumperk mountains because she was under arrest for signing the protest manifesto "Two Thousand Words."

  • During the medal ceremonies for beam (where Natalia Kuchinskaya controversially beat Vera for gold on beam) and floor (where judges raised Larisa Petrik's prelims floor scores so she would tie with Vera for gold), Vera turned her head down for the Soviet anthem, as a protest to the Soviet invasion of her country, as well as politics that favored the Soviets in scoring.

  • The Czech government and gymnastics federation forced Vera to end her career and didn't allow her to travel abroad or compete in any sporting events, even locally. With pressure from the Mexican government and IOC, she was eventually allowed to coach gymnastics in Mexico. With the fall of the Soviet Union and communism in 1989, Vera's status improved and she was considered a national hero.

Clip for TIFF 2016 movie "Below Her Mouth"

- Directed by April Mullen, it's about a ~steamy romantic affair between a lesbian roofer (model and first-time actor Erika Linder) and a fashion editor (Natalie Krill), who is engaged to a boring dude and is ostensibly straight
- Notable for its all-female production crew (writer, director, producer & everyone else on set) ✧٩(•́⌄•́๑)و ✧
- OP saw an early screening last year and the writing & acting is...not great, maybe, but it's r e a l l y hot and is like pretty much half sex scenes
- premiering at TIFF, no other official distribution yet
- (trailer is also out, but not on YouTube/any embeddable site yet)

I LOVED that it was all ladies, especially since it's sexually explicit and it's a relief to know that no creepy guy was behind the camera making them feel weird, but I feel like it could just be interpreted as 'girl-on-girl for str8 dudes, woo!' anyway. :\ But if you're into lady filmmakers and/or watching Swedish Kristen Stewart and Not Quite Camilla Luddington getting it on A LOT, see this.

Indigenous Australian rapper speaks out on blackface

A mother painted her kid's skin dark to impersonate Fijian (source said Indigenous but it's incorrect) footballer Nic Naitanui and it has ignited a national discussion on the boundaries of blackface.

Electronic music producer Hugo Gruzman from Flight Facilities, who has worked with names such as Kylie Minogue, Reggie Watts, and Bishop Nehru, took to Facebook to ask why Indigenous Australians need to care about blackface when its history as a term deals primarily with African-American racial discourse. His comments can be read here.

Indigenous rapper Briggs responded on Pedestrian TV, "Cool, another white dude who gets to decide what black people are and aren’t offended by. These dudes are so sheltered and so privileged; you’re sitting back and saying you need to educate me on blackface? It’s insanely reckless to be talking like that – these kinds of remarks are the telltale signs of this white, paternalistic ideal of race in Australia. It’s like, you don’t have the right to be tell me why blackface isn't offensive and use history as an example - Australia has its own history of blackface that dates back hundreds of years. So excuse me, Hugo from Flight Facilities, but are you a history major in race relations on Australia? Go fuck yourself."


Waka Flocka Flame says Chris Brown didn't do shit and something should happen to his accuser

Earlier today Waka Flocka Flame was approached by TMZ at LAX to ask about his support of Chris Brown. He believes that Brown was being unfairly targeted and that his accuser should be in jail and that "something should happen to her". When he was asked about the weapon and drugs he shook his head and responded with, "Who don't got weed... it's California."

When the pap mentioned Brown pointed a gun at the girl Waka Flocka Flame simply responded with "Fuck her".

His support shouldn't come as much of a surprise when in a series of now deleted tweets from January he also said someone was trying to frame Bill Cosby.

ONTD Original: The Best Debut Albums

For decades, there's always been special kinds of artists who have been able to blow music fans away with how incredible their music was right out of the gate. Sometimes a killer debut album launches an artist on a career path to super stardom, and other times their debut effort remains their only good piece of work. It's impossible to narrow down the best debut albums of all time into a list under 20, but I did it anyways!
