Tyga sued (must be Wednesday) for having his friends beat up a process server


According to several reports Tyga is being sued yet again. Shockingly, this lawsuit his inability to pay any type of bill. You might remember back in November when Tyga got served at his own birthday party.

Allegedly Tyga was so enraged by this that he had his entourage beat up the process server before throwing him out of the nightclub. The process server is now suing Tyga since he allegedly encouraged the beating in which the process server was even choked.

Unsurprisingly Tyga hasn't commented on the matter or the fact that the lawsuit literally refers to him as a "minor celebrity known more for his social life than his music".

Colbert Finally Tops Fallon (in Viewers, not sexually)


  • Jimmy Fallon still leads late night when it comes to the 18-49 demo but overall audience has shrunk since the end of 2016

  • The Late Show beat The Tonight Show in total viewers last week

  • Not necessarily because Colbert's viewers are skyrocketing, but because Fallon's are falling lol

  • "The lack of major movement of the needle for Colbert and Kimmel seems to indicate that Fallon’s viewers aren’t switching their allegiance; they may simply be tuning out all together."

Riz Ahmed: Muslim Ban, Hollywood Activism, and Diversity




Muslim Ban: Thinks the travel ban is discriminatory, un-American, and goes against America's values
His Political Rap Music: Doesn't rap with the intent of being political, he's speaking about his own personal experiences (i.e. extra TSA checks at airports). Thinks people consider it political because it's a perspective they're not used to.
Celebrities and Politics: Thinks that individuals who have a platform in these instances have a moral responsibility to speak up. Also, America essentially elected a celebrity as President, so why can't celebrities comment on politics?
Diversity in Hollywood: Thinks it's about investing in new voices and stories which will help to break down barriers between different groups of people. Thinks that people are starting to see that these risks can pay off in film and television.

Scarlett Johansson feels her role in 'Ghost In The Shell' was about feminism over race




In a recent interview, Scarlett Johansson talks about the controversy surrounding her casting as Major Motoko Kusanagi in 'Ghost In The Shell,' saying that she approached the role with a focus on gender and not race. Scarlett says that she "would never presume to play another race of a person" and that she would never want to feel like she was playing a character that was offensive. She goes on, saying that "having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity" and she can feel the enormous pressure of the weight of such a big property on her shoulders. Scarlett says that even though she's the top-grossing actress of all time, that doesn't necessarily mean that she's the highest paid, and that the gender wage gap is an uphill battle and fight.

LeBron and Steph talking about the immigration ban and Trump



- After accepting the NAACP's Jackie Robinson Award at the Image Awards last week (the show will broadcast Saturday on TVOne), somewhere between his strong showings against Charles Barkley and the Wizards, LeBron James talked to THR about the immigration ban, saying "We should all continue to speak up and fight for ideas that bring people together regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs or any other differences" and that athletes should use their platform to speak out. He added that he is "not in favor of this policy or any policy that divides and excludes people. I stand with the many, many Americans who believe this does not represent what the United States is all about."

- Steph Curry, meanwhile, responded to UA head Kevin Plank's assertion that Trump will be an asset, saying “I agree with that description,” Curry said, “if you remove the ‘et.’”

- He spent all day yesterday talking to people at UA about Plank's statement, and while he feels better after Plank's clarification that Trump is a business asset [fuck off], he qualified it with: "are we promoting change? Are we doing things that are going to look out for everybody? And not being so self-serving that it’s only about making money, selling shoes, doing this and that. That’s not the priority. It’s about changing lives. I think we can continue to do that” and hinting that he'll leave if UA adopts Trump's values.

I definitely like that the series went the extra mile of finding the right actress with the same heritage and physicality of the role. I do agree with some fans that on the subject of Chrisjen, that perhaps they could have found a proper Indian actress to portray her. I feel like the third point above reflects their decision in this (sidenote : having followed the authors' twitter accounts, they both were fans of the game Destiny in which Shohreh voices a character and I wonder if this also played a part in them wanting her for the role). Anyway, thoughts on the ep? How are you all enjoying the season so far? =)

Black Sails - Luke Arnold should head Starz' PR department + interview round-up

Tweets by recent piece of driftwood Luke Arnold, telling us why everyone should watch Black Sails right now:
Talking to Inverse, Toby Stephens discusses Flint's evolution throughout the seasons and has some interesting stuff to say about the end of his character's journey.

In this interview Toby Stephens remains relatable, is asked about how he balances his career and having three kids.



Collapse )

And last but not least, this interview with the cast and showrunners goes nicely in-depth. Topics include disability & LGBT representation, Clara Paget's muscles and references to The Wire.

Highlight: It’s about a woman realizing she isn’t who she thought she was, and season three is about finding a measure of comfort in that. I think season four for her was about figuring out if it was going to work with the person she thinks it’s going to work with.
