American Horror Story renewed for seasons eight and nine!

ontd original: 5 asexual authors


1. J. M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan

Someone close to the author once said of him, "I don't believe that Uncle Jim ever experienced what one might call 'a stirring in the undergrowth' for anyone—man, woman, or child. He was an innocent—which is why he could write Peter Pan." This came as a response to suspicions that the author was a pedophile from Nico Davies, one of the many young boys he liked to associate with.

2. Edward Gorey, picture book author

The writer who did illustrated books such as The Gashlycrumb Tinies & The Doubtful Guest attributed the sexlessness of his works to his asexuality. He never married and had little interest in romance.

Kendall Jenner Denies Getting Plastic Surgery

Kendall published a blog entry on her app saying the following:

"When I deleted my Instagram back in November, people were saying, 'Kendall deleted her account to have full facial reconstruction.' I think they might have been referencing the day Kylie and I did a livestream for our book. We had to hurry, so I let Ky do my face. I never wear lip liner or lipstick unless it's the occasional obvious red—and when I say never, I mean even when I'm doing a nude lip, it's basically just gloss!

Anyway, I left all of the makeup on because we were so rushed and I went out and did my thing. I LOVED my makeup. I never say this, but I just felt so pretty. All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, 'OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction—look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!' I was like, this is CRAZY. I didn't even address it at the time. Because if I address it, people are going to be like 'Oh, so she's defending herself—she must be guilty.' Kylie saw it all unfold and felt bad, so she went on Snapchat and took the blame.

It's all so exhausting. As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn't even make sense. It's crazy because sometimes I feel like people just want me to lose.

People forget that they're talking about real people who have real feelings and actually live their everyday lives (for the most part) just like everyone else."

The Chargers are moving to Los Angeles after 56 years in San Diego

Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced the decision in a letter released by the team while informing his staff about the move Thursday morning.

"After much deliberation, I have made the decision to relocate the Chargers to Los Angeles, beginning with the 2017 NFL season," Spanos wrote. "San Diego has been our home for 56 years. It will always be part of our identity, and my family and I have nothing but gratitude and appreciation for the support and passion our fans have shared with us over the years."

Shortly after the announcement, the Chargers revealed the 30,000-seat StubHub Center on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson will serve as the team's temporary home until the stadium it will share with the Rams in Inglewood is built.

In November, San Diego voters rejected a ballot measure that would have raised hotel occupancy taxes to help pay for a proposed $1.8 billion downtown stadium project. Ultimately, Spanos, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and other city and county officials failed to agree upon a stadium plan that would have kept the franchise in San Diego.

The Chargers also revealed a new logo.

I am so, so devastated right now. I grew up in SD. When I moved away, I rooted for them from across the country. They're basically going to be LA's third home football team. Dean Spanos can go straight to hell. Also, the new logo is ugly af. I hate everything.

Directors Guild of America Award nominees (and also some other guild)

The expected trio of Damien Chazelle, Barry Jenkins and Kenneth Lonergan are joined by Garth Davis (Lion) and Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) in the main category. The DGA most commonly goes 4/5 with the Academy's picks, though it's gone lower and higher on occasion.

Garth Davis was also nominated for Best First Feature, so one expects he's got that prize sewn up, though I'll hold out hope for Kelly Fremon Craig (The Edge of Seventeen). And hey, a consolation prize for Nate Parker; I guess they were feeling generous.

Elsewhere, we've got the Costume Designer Guild Award nominations:

Ed Sheeran DEFENDS Mariah Carey in NYE fiasco!

Ed Sheeran stopped by WKTU's 'Cubby & Carolina In The Morning' to promote his upcoming album today! Sheeran talked about the Mariah Carey drama that went down in Times Square ... And he was clearly 'Team Mariah!'

Sheeran said, “I feel like that could happen to anyone. That’s happened to me before when the in-ears just didn’t work.” The singer said in defense of her botched performance. “She’s in the middle of Times Square with no monitors. It’s really difficult. You can’t sing in time for that. I know people are watching that and poking fun at her, but that’s a really, really horrible situation to be in. You’re just there, powerless.” He even revealed that this happened to him while he was performing with his BFF Taylor Swift, so at least he didn’t have to deal with that crisis alone.

Sterling K. Brown: Pick me for Green Lantern John Stewart

Warners revealed today that the upcoming Green Lantern Corps films will focus on both Hal Jordan and John Stewart as lead characters. People v.

Robin Thicke Investigated for Alleged Child Abuse in Custody Battle With Paula Patton

- Robin Thicke is being investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services over allegations that he abused their son Julian, 6

- Julian 'reportedly told school officials that Thicke allegedly spanked him more than once. The school then allegedly reported the incident to the DCFS on January 3 and the department opened an investigation. The DCFS has since interviewed Julian and are scheduled to interview Thicke in the afternoon of Thursday, January 12, according to court documents'

- Then Paula Patton denied Thicke to see their son and filed an emergency order asking a judge to restrict the Thicke's time with his son to monitored daytime visits only

- In court documents Thicke accuses Patton of getting the courts involved because she wasn't invited to his father Alan Thicke's funeral stating: “It is my belief that Paula holds residual anger towards me because I and my family would not permit her or her family to attend the funeral of my father on December 20, 2016. Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father … As such, she was not welcome at his funeral. It is my belief that Paula only wanted to attend because it would have resulted in additional public exposure for her."

- a 'source' close to the situation states a “judge denied everything in [Patton's] complaint” and that “Child Protective Services didn’t see any evidence of wrongdoing.”

- Thicke denies any wrongdoing as he states in court documents: "On a very rare occasion and only as a last resort, I will use light spanking, but it is consistent with the law -- open hand on the butt. This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage."
