Celebs tweet about UK's Marmite crisis

As a result of Brexit, the British public are faced with the threat of shortages in regards a few different products, the most notable of which is Marmite. Sure, there are other items at risk such as Pot Noodle, Ben & Jerry's, Hellmann's mayonnaise, Dove, etc. However, none of the others have struck at the heart of the Britain like Marmite. The reason is that Unilever wanted to raise prices on its products in response to the falling pound, and the supermarket chain Tesco refused. The pound compared to the dollar is at its lowest level in 31 years. Here are just a few of Britain's famous talking about the catastrophe:

The only bad thing about them dropping the album on November 18 is that Bruno Mars is dropping his album the same day, which means that he's probably gonna block them from that #1 release week album in the UK. They should have waited a couple of weeks. Other than that, I'm excited! Don't forget to watch The X-Factor this Sunday for the first live performance of Shout Out To My Ex! They're also showing it on Monday in the US.

Suzanne Vega shades Britney Spears, talks about new music and gender identity

Singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega, who is most well-known for her massive hit "Tom's Diner," has just released a new album based on the life and work of author Carson McCullers, titled "Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers." Vega says that McCullers' gender fluidity appealed to her because although she is heterosexual and married to a man, there was a time in her life where she felt like she did not like being a woman, although she definitely didn't want to be a man either.

Suzanne Vega was also asked about Britney Spears' cover of her song. During the interview, Vega states that she was very surprised that Britney Spears had covered her song. Speaking about Britney Spears, Suzanne Vega said that she was impressed that it was Britney's idea to cover her song, since it was very unexpected and it showed maturity in Britney's career choices. Listen to Suzanne Vega's song, as well as Britney Spears' cover, after the cut below.

Guess how many white actors were in the season premiere for Fresh Off the Boat

* Season 3's premiere features exactly one white person, and she only shows up in the very last scene (Isabella Alexander as Eddie's gf Alison). Okay, two white people if you count Demi Moore on a TV that's playing the movie Ghost.

* Relevant quote from Jessica: "I forgot how relaxing it is being around all Asian people. You don't feel like a foreigner. You blend in with everyone around you."

Bob Dylan wins the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature

Iwan Rheon explains dementia + talks about his album

Iwan lost his grandmother to Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia in 2008. He said: “My grandmother was a real pillar of the community in Llanrug, North Wales. She was a Sunday school teacher and a dinner lady in a primary school. She was an incredibly strong woman and wouldn’t take any rubbish from anyone, so to see her go from that to like a scared child was really tough. It all happened so quickly, and got to the point where she couldn’t live by herself anymore and unfortunately she had to be sectioned. At times she would become really confused, thinking I was her husband. At first it was kind of funny – you have to try and laugh through these things – but she eventually deteriorated to the point she didn’t know who we were or where she was. It was pretty hardcore. I’ll always remember the way she used to constantly chase me and my brother around as we’d always be up to mischief. Even though we were a bit of a nightmare, she loved having the family around. She was a lovely woman. I’m proud to have played a small part in the project, and hope people will share this animation as far and wide as possible to improve understanding of this devastating condition."

SVU Promo for 18x05 - Unstoppable (i.e. the Trump Episode, but y'all better stop him)

Note: This will air on October 26. There will be no new episode next week, because of the 3rd Presidential debate (if it even happens).

Gary Cole (*promo voice* in an Unforgettable Performance) guest stars as a Trump-esque, but way better looking, politician who is accused of sexual misconduct by several women in the midst of his campaign.

This episode was filmed a while ago, and rescheduled several times, because NBC had concerns about airing it close to the election. Originally, it was supposed to air last night. So it was made before "grab them by the pussy" and "when you’re a star, they let you do it", even though a similar line appears in the above promo. The episode was also filmed before the more recent accusations against Trump, and it appears to have predicted those as well.

Carisi said he's single! the line starts behind me

youtube promo, episode information

ONTD, did you watch last night's Olympics-adjacent episode? Was it kinda fun or what? And what did you think about the return of Rollins's sister? Lastly, don't you think SVU should have gotten Alec Baldwin to play not-Trump?

J.K.Rowling, John Boyega on Trump: Trump near nuclear codes is everyone's business, he's a prick.

John Baeyega summed up Trump quite nicely with just two words.

J.K. Rowling responded to a tweet saying "aren't you British? Mind your own business."

Again mostly an excuse to talk about this fuckery. The comment about the People writer that came forward is so gross.

Little Mix's Leigh warned her ex about "Shout Out To My Ex"; Perrie didn't + Info about "Glory Days"

  • Perrie was asked if she warned her ex-fiancée, former One Direction member Zayn Malik, about their new single Shout Out To My Ex, and she bluntly replied: "No."

  • Jesy said that she didn't think he deserved to be warned and he would just have to wait to hear it.

  • Leigh-Anne said that she's still friends with her ex, non-league footballer Jordan Kiffin, so she warned him about the song.

  • Leigh also said that the song won't be nice for any of their exes.

  • Perrie was also asked about her relationship with actor Luke Pasqualino, this is the first time that she has talked about him, and she said that they have been going to a few fun dates, but that it's still early days. She said that he's lovely.

  • Jesy also said that Luke is a "lovely boy, nice boy."

  • Luke already heard the song and he liked it.

  • Glory Days will include more songs about their exes, but Jesy said that there's also a lot of love on their songs because both her and Jade are in love, and Perrie and Leigh went through breakups but they're finding love again.

  • There’s also a song about just having fun in a club and getting down and funky.

  • Jade is pretty sure that X-Factor contestant Honey G is a joke and she's just an actress.


Zayn didn't even listen to One Direction's last album, so I'm pretty sure he won't listen to this song, either. ONTD, are you still friends with your ex or are you done with them?

Kylie Jenner talks Tyga, fame, and lips in Complex

--On fame: Kylie wants to know what it would be like to not be famous. Had she had known how big KUWTK would get, she would have thought of maybe not being on the show.
--On her lips: She kissed a boy in middle school, and him being surprised at how good she kissed for having thin lips, made her insecure about them. She thought no one wanted to kiss her.
--On Tyga: “The first year we started hanging out, everyone around him told him not to be with me. I still get comments like, ‘Don’t be with him.’ But we’re not doing it for the public—we love each other. We need to be together at all times. We never get mad at each other, we just figure things out.”
--On being Kylie Jenner: “I don’t want to be ‘Kylie Jenner.’ It’s become a job more than who I am. I don’t even want to be that person anymore.”

HTGAWM's Lauren Vélez (Soraya Hargrove) on working with Viola Davis and her character's dark past

For season 3 of How to Get Away with Murder, there have been a few new characters (i.e. Simon Drake) this season so this week we'll talk about Dexter and New York Undercover alum Lauren Vélez who plays Soraya Hargrove, the Milford University President and who's been going head to head with Annalise.

- on how it was to work again with Viola Davis (they once were in a off-Broadway play [Intimate Apparel] over a decade ago): "Sometime in July I went out to L.A. for a meeting and I got a phone call and they said “Do you want to come on the show?” Yes, of course! I was very excited. I met with the showrunner, Peter Nowalk, who’s just wonderful. He said, “Look, it’s gonna be a very slow burn. We really want to move with the character slow and let it grow into whatever it’s going to be in the show,” which has been a really great process. As the storyline unfolds it’s become something I can really sink my teeth into. And most of my scenes have been with Viola so, how’s that for a dream coming true?"

- on what her character is like: "...I can tell you is that the character that I play, the president of the University, Soraya Hargrove, fascinates me. It’s a very powerful position for a woman to have and she, like the character I played in Dexter, is a political animal. A different kind of political animal. Soraya believes that you can draw more bees with honey than with vinegar. She’s a consummate politician. She tries to do everything with a smile and really just works everything from a very different angle. She’s a good girl. She’s a nice girl. She’s a class valedictorian. She’s that sort of person and as the show progresses, we find out her deep, dark secrets, some of which have been revealed (though I can’t tell you!)"

Doesn't Lauren look fantastic for 51. Also how do you like President Hargrove, ONTD?
