Kanye West meets with Donald Trump

Accompanied by his videographer and the rest of his entourage, the newly blonde Kanye arrived at Trump Tower this morning to meet with the president-elect. The reason for this meeting hasn't been disclosed yet, but there has been discussion of which A-list musicians will be willing to perform for Trump's inauguration festivities and Kanye certainly seems like one of the more famous possibilities.

Trevor Noah sits down with President Obama

Trevor Noah sat down and interviewed President Obama for the entirety of The Daily Show on Monday night.

Trevor sat down with the president and discussed a range of issues including Russia's involvement in the elction. Obama seemed frustrated by the fact that this is not new information but people are starting to become outraged by it now. He also called out America's obsession with Hillary's e-mails even though they contained nothing controversial.

What is it about our political ecosystem, what is it about the state of our democracy where the leaks of what were frankly not very interesting emails that didn’t have any explosive information ended up being an obsession, and the fact that the Russians were doing this was not an obsession?”

Other topics included:

-Trumps statement that he doesn't need intelligence briefing
-Post presidency plans
-Racism in America and Obama's experiences

Andrew Lloyd Webber claims he discovered Rihanna before Jay-Z did

While appearing on Good Morning Britain this morning to help promote his current production School of Rock, Andrew Lloyd Webber made the claim that he believes he was actually the first person to discover Rihanna years ago. The Lord Lloyd-Webber recalled seeing the singer performing karaoke about twelve years ago at a hotel in Barbados. He says that he instantly noticed how good that she was and praised her to his friend.

"I wondered if we brought her back, it might be like a picture you buy on holiday and then you get home and think, why did I buy that?" he recalled. "I thought I might get her home and then wonder what to do with her... it's not something I'm proud of."

Do you think Rihanna could have become his muse?

Golden Globe Nominee Riz Ahmed talks about Acting + The Night Of

- Talks about how acting is a way for him to let go as he's a "control freak"
- One time, he decided to follow stage directions to "wail uncontrollably" and it was a disaster
- Finds it interesting how chemistry on set translates off set (i.e. him and Jake Gyllenhaal got too close and would try not to get annoyed with him lol)
- Still stunned by "The Night Of's" success because it almost never got made; the pilot was shown in 2012 and it didn't get picked up at first
- Thought "The Night Of" would get lost in the mix of amazing TV that's been on lately

Script on the Black List hurts the feelings of John Landis' son

A script on the Black List is currently making waves by causing the son of a famous director to become butt hurt. Among the best unproduced screenplays of the year is one called "Untitled Lax Mandis Project" a title that is an obvious dig at John Landis' son who has claimed film is dead because you didn't see his stoner movie, says people shouldn't be mad at films who whitewash, hates adaptations but (poorly) adapted Frankenstein, said Rey is the worst because she's a Mary Sue and also denies that he has any kind of privilege. According to The Playlist the film is about "A freshman film exec at odds with the state of his industry is forced to work with the one person who is making him question everything."

However this product of nepotism isn't mad because people are making fun of him, no of course not why would he be, he claims he's only upset because it took up someone else's spot on the Black List! (Sure Jan). He responded with a lengthy Facebook rant where he compared the script being on the list to Trump being elected President.

There's a script that was put out with my name on it to get attention to tracking boards. It is the story of a frustrated creative executive who is forced to work with a talentless megalomaniac wunderkind screenwriter called "Lax Mandis."

This is actually the fourth script I've read in which I or some version of me is a character, and the second in which I am a villain. It is however the first to unknowingly feature my old Unreal Tournament gamertag. (Gasp shock the horror not your old gamertag! 😱)

Following the trend of his last albums, + (Plus) and x (Multiply), this album could be called - (Minus or Subtract) or ÷ (Divide) or perhaps even = (Equals) or some other math symbol.

91 songs eligible for the Oscar for Best Original Song

My personal favourite song from a film this year was "Something Wild" from Pete's Dragon, but that was only used over the end credits, so even apart from that film's not being especially successful, it wouldn't really fit this category, which is supposed to take into account the song's use in the film.

Also, two songs from Moana are eligible, neither of them being "You're Welcome", the objectively best song in the film (because I say so).

After finding out about Marco Polo's cancellation, thought I'd do my part and try and post about this show. There aren't a lot of shows lead by POC, so it's refreshing to have both an Asian male lead with a WOC love interest as well as the younger lead being of Indian/German/Pakistani descent. As a fan of Wuxia films, I find the world-building and fight scenes pretty excellent and entertaining, especially compared to other shows and their fight choreography.

I wasn't sure if AMC would renew it, so I'm thankful we finally got news this summer. Season 2 is set to air March 2017. So, anyone else into the show? Daniel Wu's beauty thanks you for your time.

Oscar post: Scores for Arrival, Silence, MBTS disqualified

The Motion Picture Academy revealed its list of eligible scores for the Original Score Oscar (along with Original Song, already posted about). Missing were three notable films: Arrival, Manchester by the Sea, and Silence. Variety has learned that all three scores were disqualified from contention for having too much borrowed material (in the case of Arrival) or not enough original material (in the case of MBTS and Silence).

Studios/composers cannot appeal the decision as no such process exists.

Hilary Duff receives massive backlash after posting picture of giving her four year old a kiss

Yesterday Hilary Duff took a family trip to Disneyland. During the day she posted the above picture of her and her four year old son Luca outside of It's A Small World. The photo almost immediately received a large amount of responses calling the picture gross, perverted, inappropriate and some even saying that it was a form of child abuse. While some of the harsher comments have been deleted several still remain -

The backlash, which interestingly enough was far more severe than any received the day before when Duff posted a picture of herself shooting a semiautomatic weapon, led ONTD's favorite walker to address the situation on her account earlier this morning.
