Lady Gaga interview with NYT Style Magazine + Joanne Mini-film



- Knows the social context around being white and singing jazz now but didn't as a child. She recognizes it's an African-American art form and thinks it's the country's best.
- Thinks the justice system needs fixing
- Always wants to prove herself as a musician, because she wants people to know that female artists can be something other than objectified.
- Sometimes the darkness inside her tries to hinder her writing

SAG-AFTRA Goes on Strike Against the Video Game Industry




An update from this post a year ago. SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild), after multiple negotiations, were not satisfied with the contracts video game voice actors have to sign and has decided to go on strike against 11 video game publishers. This is the first SAG-AFTRA strike since 2000 against the commercial/advertising industry which lasted for six months and this counts as the first strike against the video game industry. The union's demands are that the actors get residual-type bonuses (aka getting paid for multiple showings/screenings like for movies/TV) for their work. The voice actors want a performance bonus every time a game sells 2 million copies. There is also an issue of secrecy in the buisiness were a video game publisher won't even tell the actor what they're working on. The actors under the guild now have to refuse work until a new deal is created. Here is the list of games SAG-AFTRA are striking this includes popular upcoming video games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Kingdom Hearts 2.8, and Injustice 2. The first picketed strike will be held against Electronic Arts today.

It does suck seeing games I want on that list but I really hope they get the deal they want because voice actors in that industry are constantly treated like shit.

SVU Promo: The Show Takes On Brock Turner



SVU is back this Wednesday, after a break for the third presidential debate last week. Speaking of, you might remember that a Trump-inspired episode was supposed to air, but it was pulled off the schedule (and currently remains unscheduled). In its place, we'll get to watch a Brock Turner-inspired episode, which will likely be even worse.

On the bright side, we'll get an ER reunion. If you're old like me, you'll remember Mariska Hargitay was once on ER, and her character briefly dated Mark Green. Anthony Edwards (i.e. the beloved Dr. Green) will be guest-starring this week, as Benson's first ever partner! And also the rapist's father, who will ask Benson for help! (wtf has he never watched SVU?)

carisi
Um. They better not have Benson, like, feel tempted to help out her old buddy. I will vomit.

Lady Gaga visits Howard Stern


- On if Joanne is the only time she's written about herself/her life: "Well, no I've wrote about me. I wrote about me on Born This Way and growing up feeling bullied in school and really connecting with my fans in that way, really seeing myself in my fans. And with The Fame & The Fame Monster, TF was more about living on the lower east side and figuring out 'ok how am I going to precieve my music into the world, this thing that is fame is so fascinating.' This was when tabloids, Paris Hilton & all of that was kind of the 'big thing.' And then TFM was about my experiences with fame and the fears that came along with it. So I have written about myself, it's just always been maybe in a more conceptual way."

- On the second single: "I'm not approacing putting out this record in the same way that I've ever put out a record before. I'm gonna perform it, and sing the music and make music videos... old-school style."

- Doesn't have respect for singers who use pre-recorded vocals.

- Will never be on trend because she does not want to be a manufactured performing doll

- Her mother keeps all the memorabilia from her career and Gaga has an archive called "The Vault" with all her props and costumes from the past decade. She said she's hardly visited because it might make her too sad and feel like "a funeral."

Ryan Lochte petitions Brazilian judge to dismiss his criminal case; is denied



Ryan Lochte may be putting on a front about how he's over the crimes he committed in Brazil, dancing with the stars and getting engaged, but behind the scenes he is still employing lawyers to get Brazilian justice off his back.

The creative story-teller, through his Brazilian lawyers, petitioned a judge to dismiss his criminal case, claiming his conduct was not a crime, because Ryan initially had not gone to the police, but talked "only" to the international media about his "robbery". It was the police who, alerted by the news, began their investigation and came looking for the American swimmers to check on them, get their statements and see if they wanted to file police reports. (Which Ryan and James Feigen did).

Basically, Ryan claims it was the police's fault for looking into a "crime" that was being reported all over the world :(

The judge was not having it. She also pointed out that in Brazilian jurisprudence, the police can start investigations because of news reported by the media. The case is now with the prosecution.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Is The New Face Of Boots NO7 Makeup



Blub from the ad: “Our culture teaches us that if a woman wants to be taken seriously, then she is not supposed to care too much about her appearance. So for a while, I stopped wearing makeup and hid my high heels and I became a false version of myself,” Adichie said. “But then I woke up and I saw in full colour - full confidence again. Because the truth is makeup doesn’t actually mean anything, its simply make up. It’s about how I feel when I get it right, what makes me happy when I look in the mirror, what makes me walk ever so taller. It’s about the face I choose to show the world and what I choose to say.”

Discussing the launch of the ad campaign in an interview with Vogue, Adichie also, said “I love make-up and its wonderful possibilities for temporary transformation. And I also love my face after I wash it all off,” she said in a statement. “There is something exquisitely enjoyable about seeing yourself with a self-made new look. And for me that look is deeply personal. It isn’t about what is in fashion or what the rules are supposed to be. It’s about what I like. What makes me want to smile when I look in the mirror. What makes me feel slightly better on a dull day. What makes me comfortable.”

Empire Online have interviewed new Season 2 Showrunner Todd Slavkin about he and writing partner Darren Swimmer (of Smallville, Melrose Place, Alphas, Dominion, Defiance, etc) coming on board and taking a more ‘adultish and cinematic approach’.

Todd talks the issues he felt Season One had, and how they are making Season Two bigger, darker, more visceral, and more character-driven.
And how although they 'respect' the tone of the source material... they are writing all new content that is basically just better (for television, and in general).

Let the Right One In / Låt den rätte komma in



Book: Låt den rätte komma in, written by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

About: It is autumn 1981 when the inconceivable comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenage boy is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.

But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night....
