David Miliband speaks to Trevor Noah on the Daily Show about the refugee ban

Mods, I posted this because although short, it's a really good and heartfelt interview.

- David Miliband is the President and CEO of the IRC, an organisation that helps and resettles refugees around the world. UK people remember him as the former Foreign Secretary of the UK and No 1 Banana fan.
- David says that the ban is a propaganda gift for Al Qaeda and ISIS.
- Says that the human side of the story is getting lost amidst all the statistics out there.
- He brings on an Iraqi man who was affected by the ban. The audience claps and cheers them on.
- David notes that it's harder to get to the US as a refugee than any other route, even before / without the ban. He adds that not only is it right to welcome refugees, it's smart.

Mimi Leder to Direct Natalie Portman in Ginsburg Film, "On the Basis of Sex"


Mimi Leder has been hired by Natalie Portman to direct the RBG drama. Leder is perhaps best known for directing Deep Impact which was the highest grossing film directed by a woman until Twilight.

On the Basis of Sex will follow Ginsburg's early years at law school and her first big case. Portman is producing as well as starring as Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The screenplay is by Daniel Stiepelman, who just so happens to be Ruth Bader Ginsburg's nephew.

This will be Leder's first feature film since 2009's Thick as Thieves which starred Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas. In between then and now, she has worked on The Leftovers and Shameless.


Little Mix on Trump visiting UK, the women's march+Theresa May

In interview 2nd of February,

-On whether they like Theresa May: "Of course! Bit of girl power there"
(not the first time they've mentioned like for Theresa May, in interview with the Guardian when asked Jade said “Yes, I enjoy her but I’m not sure about the kitten heels.”)

-On whether Donald Trump should be allowed to visit the UK (the matter is currently being debated in UK parliament): "We welcome all visitors."

-When asked if they marched in the Women's march + if it's a stance they agree with + want to take up: "No I think we do it through our music mostly, we have a lot of girl power anthems, you know about making women feel confident encouraging them to stand up"

Hate to make similar post 2 days in row but we need a new trump post. If the name isn't recognizing, Theresa May is the UK prime minister for the conservative party, the one responsible for the Go home or face arrest vans. Trump is heartless idiot who conned his way into presidency.

Atlanta police apologize for Beyoncé pregnancy tweet

After Bey's announcement Wednesday that she's pregnant, the Atlanta Police department department tweeted, "Beyoncé may have everyone wanting to celebrate her pregnancy, but remember no celebratory gunfire! Stay safe, Atlanta!"

Police spokesman Sgt. Warren Pickard said some people found it funny while others were offended.
Pickard said the decision was made to take the tweet down "because it doesn't focus on what we do every day as a public safety department." and that "We wanted to somehow add comedic relief to the things going on around the world, and we missed the mark,"
They have deleted the tweet and tweeted an apology.

Eminem: "Trump's a Bitch," on Big Sean's No Favors

Em declares that Trump is a bitch and disses Ann Coulter in his featured verse from Big Sean's new track "No Favors."

His verse: “I’m anti, can’t no government handle a commando. Your man don’t want it, Trump’s a bitch! I’ll make his whole brand go under.”

Em showed his dislike for Trump previously by retweeting Michael Moore's movie, Trumpland back in November encouraging his fans to vote

Claws Promo

Claws starring Niecy Nash. Set in a South Florida nail salon, the dramedy hails from executive producers Rashida Jones, Will McCormack and Janine Sherman Barrois

Hopefully this is good enough for Niecy Nash to get another Emmy. Karrueche Tran is driven and I like that she wants to be a serious actress. She could of easily got herself a spot on one of the Love & Hip Hop shows.

crazy ex-girlfriend showrunner comments on THAT FINALE

After the season two finale aired last night, Aline Brosh McKenna has been quoted in a number of interviews talking about the episode (which she wrote and directed) and what's next for season three.

[Spoilers for the finale, obviously]
On those flashbacks: "It stands to reason that somebody who engages in these obsessive-romantic behaviors has done so before. We wanted to show another instance in her life where she had engaged in extreme behavior and that this was a core wound and that she was still recovering from it."

On Josh's decision to join the priesthood: "I actually think the choice that he makes, in his own way, he's a bit of a coward, right? So it's a little bit of a...it's a path that he sees that in his mind is not hurting her, in the same way. [...] I think also like two percent of his mind figures: My parents will forgive me."

On Darryl and White Josh's future: "Darryl is, he's very much like Rebecca. He dreams and gets excited about things. [...] I think the second that Darryl heard that [White Josh doesn't believe in marriage], there was like a little cauldron started to boil in the back. So, we'll see."

On why Josh didn't open the envelope: "Because he realizes it’s not her fault, no matter what’s in there. And he knows it’s something bad. But that’s not what the problem is. The problem is his own issues."

On the direction for season 3: "The second season was, “We’ve slept together and you have to say that you love me.” Now we’re moving more towards what you think of when you think of the title, which is, “How do I get this person off of me?”

There is actually a lot I left out from the interviews so I definitely recommend reading the sources.

Drag Race season 9 contestant Charlie Hides' racist past


- Rupaul's Drag Race season 9 contestant Charlie Hides (a white man) commonly performed in blackface as "Laquisha Jonz" which was "based on misogynistic stereotypes of Black working class women".
- Didn't stop performing as her until a petition was created and her act got canned
- Charlie Hides had this to say: "As a gender fluid immigrant this country, I was able to use Laquisha to express my feelings and experiences of being a fish out of water" "Laquisha's stand up comedy show is layered with subtext and nuance and positive messages. Never have I discussed race or racial politics. I've promoted peace and harmony and getting along with everyone."

Rob Stewart's body has been found :(

Rob Stewart was in Florida filming a follow-up movie to his 2006 documentary “Sharkwater” called “Sharkwater Extinction,”.

A dive team from the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Dept reportedly found Mr. Stewart at a depth of about 60 metres of water off the Florida Keys.

The body was found approximately 90 metres from where Mr. Stewart had vanished. After the announcement, the filmmaker’s sister, Alexandra Stewart, posted a note on her Facebook page: “Rob has been found, peacefully in the ocean. There are no words. We are so deeply grateful to everyone who helped search, and happy that Rob passed while doing what he loved. We are working on how best to honour his incredible work.”

“It’s likely that he passed out from the rebreather, and sank right where he was,” said Mr. Watson, a Canadian who was involved in the search for his friend. The depth and underwater visibility would have been a problem in the search.

He [Rob] devoted his career to warning the world about threats facing sharks, other ocean life and humanity in general. “Sharkwater,” which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, became an international hit and prompted people around the world to lobby their governments for bans on shark finning.

RIP :(

Trey Parker and Matt Stone say Trump is too hard to satirise, decide to "back off" Trump jokes

South Park creators have decided to put the pause button on political jokes, claiming that “[the government is] already going out and doing the comedy. It’s not something you can make fun of.” They also add that “It’s really tricky now as satire has become reality" and that it was difficult to keep up with the craziness that was going on.

Although the first episode of the last season achieved the highest ratings of any SP premiere in a decade, the reviews were mixed.

Earlier in the week, observers caught glipse of drones flying over the stadium during rehearsals:

Selma Blair Breaks Down in Tears After Driving Away From Gas Pump With Nozzle Still In Her Car

Ok. So my head is still pounding. I drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in. I was chastised for wearing fur but that was weird cause it was teddy bear fur. And then I paid for the broken pump so that was over a 500 dollar tank of gas . Felt awful for being so absent minded. Then I burst into tears in front of barista after ordering and made everyone uncomfortable. Still crying. And I ran out of dog food. And excedrin. Can I have someone say this will pass ? #waytogo #crapday #stillgrateful #makemelaughplease #timetoplaywithmylittleone
