Val Kilmer DENIES he has cancer!

val_kilmer_1986_05_06




In a post on Facebook, Val had this to say:

I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed. The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat, which prevented me from continuing a tour of my play CITIZEN TWAIN. I ended up using a team at UCLA and have no cancer whatsoever.

Lindsay Lohan explains her new accent!

Over the past few weeks, Lindsay Lohan has done some interviews where she discussed important topics like her new night club in Greece and her initiative to give energy drinks to refugees and to the surprise of many, her accent and speaking patterns are very different than those of the Lindsay we used to know. If you haven't heard it yet, this is what she sounds like:

When asked about it, Lindsay explained:
"It's a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn,"
"I've been learning different languages since I was a child. I'm fluent in English and French, can understand Russian, and am learning Turkish, Italian, and Arabic."

Starbucks Introduces New Controversial 'Unity' Cup




When Starbucks introduced its red holiday cup last year, people were pressed that the Christmas imagery was removed and that Starbucks' liberal agenda was trying to kill Christian values.

This year, kkkonservatives are even more pissed off that Starbucks released a 'unity' cup that shows a "mosaic of more than a hundred people drawn in one continuous stroke,” which the company says represents community and unity in a time of political divisiveness.


Though Starbucks is not a Christian company and has never put "Merry Christmas" on its cup, it has used general winter/holiday imagery like snowmen, ornaments and words like "joy" or "hope" in the past.

Former Glee actress Becca Tobin wore a racist Halloween costume, is handling it poorly

When Native American fans confronted her about it, she...blocked them. And is still blocking anyone that mentions the costume to her:

ETA: She apparently had the foresight to know that the costume was racist and her excuse was that her fiancé is NA.

Canadian Comic Legend Dave Broadfoot passes away at 90


- Dave Broadfoot is probably most remembered as a member of The Royal Canadian Air Farce. He appeared on both the radio and television version of the show. His best-known characters were the Honourbale Member for Kicking Horse Pass, Sgt Renfrew of the RCMP, and Big Bobby Clobber a hockey player who had taken to many pucks to the head.
- He was known for an act that blended genial satire, Canadiana-laced content, and an extensive knowledge of political and historical goings-on. Broadfoot poked fun at all regions of the country with mildly politically incorrect results, praising the peace and quiet one finds in Quebec on Canada Day, and also in an extended riff on Canadian inventiveness.
- Said by many to be a pioneer of Canadian comedy and was even once called the Canadian John Cleese. He found fame outside of Canada as well and even appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show.
- Born in Vancouver on Dec. 5, 1925, Broadfoot began hitting stages soon after serving in the navy during the Second World War.
- Broadfoot was named an officer of the Order of Canada in 1983 and 20 years later was presented with the Governor General's Performing Arts Award.
- Further information on his passing isn't available, his family confirmed his passing to the CBC.

Park Chan Wook talks about the Handmaiden

The Handmaiden is currently out in US theaters! Go watch it! In case you haven't seen the trailer:


On the Handmaiden challenging perceptions of homosexuality in South Korea: "I haven’t seen any statistics where this film achieved this sort of effect, but people have come up to me and said, “I took my mother by the hand and went to see the film.” It was an experience where middle-aged women saw the film and they might have been tricked into seeing this film by their children, but they were able to liberate themselves from their hatred and bias and just see this as a beautiful love story."

Lil Wayne says he doesn't feel connected to Black Lives Matter movement


Lil Wayne's Tuesday night interview on Nightline found the rapper sharing controversial thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement and much more.

When asked about Black Lives Matter, Wayne appeared confused at first. "What is it? What do you mean?" he asked. Once informed, he said that the fact that he is, in his own words, "a young, black, rich motherfucker," meant that he didn't have to be connected to the movement. "I don't feel connected to a damn thing," he said.

"My life matter," he concluded. "Especially to my bitches."

‘Doctor Strange’ director owns up to whitewashing controversy


In the comics, Swinton's character, The Ancient One, was a powerful Tibetan mystic, an Asian man, and 'and a dated stereotype at that' according to the article.

Having the Ancient One cast as female at least marks a step towards progress for Marvel, because of its usual lack of strong female roles. Derrickson says this was the first decision made and that it wouldn't be a '26-year-old leather-clad fanboy dream girl'

Casting an Asian woman felt like contributing to a bad stereotype

"Whitewashing, if you use the term the way it’s used now—it’s what I did with the role. But it also implies racial insensitivity and it implies racist motives and I don’t think I had either. I was really acting out of what I still feel is the best possible choice. But it’s like I chose the lesser evil—and just because you choose the lesser evil it doesn’t mean you’re not choosing an evil."

Talks about reinventing the character of Wong - instead of a sidekick, he's Strange's intellectual mentor

"Diversity is the responsibility of directors."

Madonna drunkenly wallows on art gallery floor, shocks guests



Pop singer Madonna looked a little disheveled as she was photographed rolling around on the floor clutching a glass of wine at upscale photography exhibition in London.

The "Living For Love" singer supposedly had a lot to drink, dropped to the floor and started putting on a show.

The stunned art crowd stood around and took pictures, despite her bodyguards best efforts. Following that, Madonna propped herself up against the wall, possibly needing a rest from the drunken wallowing.

This is not Madonna's first drunken public faux pas. Back in March,she suffered another alcohol-fueled on-stage meltdown.

Is Taylor Swift Pregnant?



OK! Magazine has an exclusive scoop on Taylor's rumored pregnancy w/ their cover today: “[Taylor Swift] Shocker! Pregnant! Who’s The Dad?” According to the magazine’s report, the "Moment I Knew" singer is expecting a baby and dealing with baby daddy problems!

Apparently she's not sure who it is because she's had so many boyfriends but friends have a hunch that it is Calvin Harris' child.

Taylor, who has been single for a few days has been recently caught mingling with Drake and is currently recording w/ him.


“[Taylor Swift] friends aren’t even sure who the father would be, though their money’s on Calvin Harris. The timing fits for a late-summer reunion with him, which could have prompted her to dump Tom [Hiddleston]. That would put her a few months along.”

Trevor Noah promotes his memoir, talks about his upbringing and liberal hatred



  • His memoir is a depiction of living in South Africa both under and after apartheid.

  • Wasn't allowed to play outside as a kid since his mother could be arrested for having a relationship with a white man.

  • Talks about growing up lonely and an outsider.

  • Thinks that racism is so blatant in SA that nobody can deny it while it's written in the American system but many Americans are still convinced there's no problem.

  • Thinks everyone lives in a bubble thanks to social media and that truth is only regarded as one of several opinions.

  • Was surprised by the backlash from liberals who wanted him to go back to Africa.

Backlash against the romance between Harry and Meghan?

  • Also mentions that the tolerance for interracial relationships isn't necessarily greatest in the British upper class [gasp]

Leo's Magnum Opus "Before The Flood" is out.

In a follow-up to this post, the movie Leonardo DiCaprio made for National Geographic, Before The Flood is available in full here for your viewing pleasure.
So gather round with your organically sourced vodka in your BPA-free tumblers made of sustainabily harvested bamboo and using your tiny ecological footprint power up that solar generator and watch by the oxygen-reduced camp-side fire app on your new MacBook Pro that you needed a dongle to hook up to your iPhone7's AT&T coverage.



About this great achievement (taken directly from YT because it is apt):
Before the Flood, directed by Fisher Stevens, captures a three-year personal journey alongside Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace (when did this happen? receipts?) Leonardo DiCaprio as he interviews individuals from every facet of society in both developing and developed nations who provide unique, impassioned and pragmatic views on what must be done today and in the future to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.

Also do your part by using the hastag #BeforeTheFlood across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram between October 24 – November 18, and 21st Century Fox and National Geographic will together donate $1 to Pristine Seas and $1 to the Wildlife Conservation Society, up to $50,000 to each organization. (which I mean that is not enough but whatever do it anyhow)
