Tom Talks Taylor on GQ

On Taylor Swift: "I only know the woman I met. She’s incredible. She's generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time."

On Hiddleswift: "Of course it was real. We decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel… She's incredible. A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. And it's not just the limelight. It's everything else."

On the I ♥︎ T.S. shirt: "The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, 'Does anyone have a T-shirt?' And one of her friends said, 'I've got this. The friend pulled out the "I ♥ T.S." tank top and we all laughed about it. It was a joke. It was a joke, among friends. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing."

Charlie Day Comments on Mac's Big Moment on IASIP



After last night's episode of IASIP focused on Mac, Charlie Day gave some context on the decision.

[Spoiler (click to open)]Mac came out for good after a long and involved arbitration process that had to do with a lottery scratcher and Frank using the f-slur.


On the decision to have him come out, in an episode directed by Jamie Babbit of famous gay movie But I'm A Cheerleader, Charlie Day said it was partially based on the fan reaction to Mac coming out last year in "The Gang Goes To Hell" only to go back in the closet at the end of the episode. Fans were disappointed to see Mac finally come out and then quickly take it back.


He added, "But I also think with what the sort of message is behind him making that decision, I think it actually does more sort of societal good to finally have Mac make that decision. So we decided, all right, let’s find a way to actually have that happen.”

Riverdale Post: New Promo, Original Music, and Season Wide Spoilers



So basically part of tonight's episode has Betty and Veronica getting revenge on Chuck for slut shaming Veronica. Which would seem to affirm some spoilers that came out before the pilot aired. Some things from the list were already confirmed, but others seemed way too crazy but look likely to be confirmed as well.

As always, take these with a grain of salt.

Lady Gaga's "John Wayne" music video premieres on VEVO/Youtube




Gaga talked with Zane Lowe about the surprise music video she first released to Apple Music yesterday:

"I have known Jonas [Akerlund] for a really long time and we've been wanting to work together again. For this song I thought he and I would just be perfect to do this together. He directed the music video, but the way we usually start when we work is he likes to download from me all my visions about the song. I'll tell him 'I envision me on the back of a horse with a guy and I'm about to fall off and no matter how fast he goes and how much it hurts I keep hanging on and I look like I'm enjoying it, or, you know, a scene with me and a guy in a car and we're getting too reckless and we show how reckless love can be.' I took him through a whole bunch of different scenarios like that and he helps to weave it together into a story and a video."

This is the first Gaga video to be directed by an ACTUAL video director in 7 years (smh)

ONTD Original: Great Romance Books


A good romance book can make you laugh or cry, can lift your spirits and inspire you. As author Kristan Higgins put it, "romance authors offer readers an emotional experience that mirrors an elemental desire in life: to find a constant and loving companion; to become our best selves; to forgive our mistakes of the past and learn from them".

So to celebrate Valentine's Day, here is a list of romance recs - while I can't guarantee you will like everything (taste being personal and all), they are all nice romantic fun times, no weird stuff.

Marvel's Kevin Feige: Upcoming movies will spend as much time in space as they will on Earth



- Says the phenomenon will begin after Spider-Man: Homecoming
- Will apply at the very least to GotG Vol. 2 (duh), Thor: Ragnarok (where "three scenes are set on Earth" and the action goes "beyond the nine realms"), possibly Black Panther (!!), and Avengers: Infinity War; others, like Captain Marvel, likely.
- Confirms that Thor: Ragnarok will have many elements of Planet Hulk (yaaaas)
- Says Thanos will become "a main character" soon so he can finally be more than a chair-seated fool before the DCEU swoops in to make Darkseid the rightful space tyrant in everyone's minds

Coolio says he was courted to play Scarecrow in Batman 5

- Coolio visited some bar-and-grill in North Texas several days ago and got interviewed by some random guy. In it, he reveals that he made his brief appearance in the iconic 1997 Batman & Robin because director Joel Schumacher promised to cast him as Scarecrow in the franchises next installment. But because the film flopped, Schumacher was fired and the franchise was put on hold until Christopher Nolan came along. Coolio mentions that he and Joel didn't get along anyway.

- Schumacher, though, has a different story, and stated back in 2015 that he courted Nic Cage for the part. Cage signed on for Superman Lives instead.

- Batman 5 (titled Batman Unchained) would see Scarecrow and Harley Quinn team-up to drive Batman insane. The films big moment would see Batman confront Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Two Face, and Riddler in a hallucination sequence.

Ed Sheeran describes how Taylor Swift prevents her music from leaking

Ed listened to the song he and Taylor did together when someone with a iPad locked in a briefcase played it for him. Taylor has spoken of being paranoid and protective before. In 2014, she only allowed a Rolling Stone interviewer to listen to 1989 through headphones on Taylor's iPhone. She also flew an iPod to the director of Shake it Off to ask if he liked the song and would like to direct the video. Taylor has also spoken of being paranoid that rooms are bugged or that there are cameras following her everywhere, so she only listens to music through headphones and is careful when changing.

Billy Brown (Nate) talks HTGAWM



We have no idea who killed Wes but we have many suspects which include Billy Brown's Nate who was seen going into Annalise's house before it blew it up. Billy talks with Lindsay MacDonald about where his loyalties lie and what to expect from tonight's episode.

On where his loyalties lie: “Nate’s loyalty is to himself,” Brown says. “After all that has been thrust upon him and all he’s been through — strip searches, losing his wife, not even having the opportunity to spend precious moments with her because he was forcibly put into jail, excoriated from the police department, publicly humiliated, losing his job, you name it… Nate’s been a quick study in taking care of number one, and that’s fine with him.”

On whether or not he’s made up his mind about who he suspects killed Wes: “In detective speak, everybody’s a suspect. Could [Frank] have done it? Sure he could have done it— but that’s why Nate was one of the best detectives on the force. He’s not going to arrive at any abrupt conclusions until the evidence supports it. Right now, Nate’s looking at all these motherf***ers.”
