ONTD Original: 5 Iconic Phrases from Japanese Scandals

Scandals and celebrity news come and go, but what makes it memorable is a phrase or title that makes it infamous. Whether it's "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative", "I don't know her", or "Fanta, Fanta, no Coke", they all become engraved in our memories due to the impact of these often unintentionally funny statements. However, this phenomenon expands beyond western media. Here are five Japanese scandals that highlight how the power of memed phrases transcends language.

'This Is Us' star fuming over Lady GaGa & Kesha body shaming!

In an interview with SiriusXM's Jenny Hutt, 'This Is Us' star Chrissy Metz revealed that she was furious over the body shaming that Lady GaGa and Kesha have received.

Chrissy said, "THAT made me bonkers, bananas, crazy. How is someone fat if they're not fat? I want to see someone else get on that damn stage and do what she did! ... I think what happens and really what the core of the issue is that we project all of our stuff and our crap onto other people. And if we're really really genuinely happy with ourselves and love ourselves, you can't talk sh#* about other people. You can't be hateful because you love yourself. And we are extensions of each other. We are all connected."

Moonlight's Alex R. Hibbert wants to cure cancer

Precious child and Moonlight star Alex R. Hibbert doesn't care much for fame. In an interview with HeyUGuys, Hibbert says he's only doing the work for his mom so that she can retire. Alex also wants to help other people in need and hopes to use the money he makes acting to build and fund a cancer research lab. Alex also mentions that the biggest take away from Moonlight for him is that there are a ton of people struggling and you shouldn't make superficial judgments on anyone because you just don't know what's going on in their life.

Someone should tell that to UK film critic Camilla Long, who decided to write a terrible review of the film that is basically summed up as "empty, not important, and not relevant because black people won't see it." She is getting destroyed on Twitter for it and yet still doesn't get it.

Mission: Impossible 6 Details from Director Christopher McQuarrie

  • Director Christopher McQuarrie talked to Empire for its podcast. Shooting for Mission: Impossible 6 will begin in April and will be released July 27, 2018. Tom Cruise will return (obviously) as will Rebecca Ferguson.

  • The film will be more about Ethan Hunt's morality as opposed to just cool stunts. The film will NOT begin with a cool action scene, as it has for three out of the five previous films. McQuarrie admits that was the hardest sell to the studio.

  • When asked about the big stunt of the film, McQuarrie said he didn't know yet, but he showed Tom Cruise a photo of a place recently, and Tom responded "That’s awesome! I want to fall off of that!" because 54 year old Tom Cruise doesn't respect his own life.

  • McQuarrie teases "people you would not expect [will] be back." (FUCK JEREMY RENNER, BRING BACK THANDIE NEWTON AND MAGGIE Q)

Tinashe round up! Tinashe will be RCA's priority in 2017 + more.

Leaders of RCA, Peter Edge and Tom Corson, in a interview with Music Business Wordwide, revealed that Tinashe is one of their priorities for 2017, along with 18-year-old Texan Khalid, Nigerian One Dance collaborator Wizkid, hip-hop artist Goldlink and band Muna – while we can also expect new records from Bryson Tiller, Pink! and perhaps from Miley Cyrus, who’s started work on her RCA follow-up to Bangerz.

Standout successful moves under the duo leadership include the transition of Miley Cyrus from a Disney star to a boundary-breaking pop behemoth, promo-shy Sia, who in 2016 was the third most played female artist on Spotify worldwide, Zayn who became the first British male artist to debut at No.1 in both in the US and UK with "Pillowtalk", before a No.1 album swiftly followed, fellow RCA signings Alicia Keys and Britney Spears who joined Sia in charting in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200, while No.1 US albums were secured by Kings of Leon and a cappella outfit Pentatonix.
In the same interview, they stated that "The music comes first. We are not a promotions-driven company – we are an A&R-driven company."

The Expanse roundup- 2X05 pics, post episode 4 video and podcast

Promotional photos at the link in the tweet, the synopsis: [Spoiler (click to open)]'The Rocinante chases an asteroid as it hurtles towards Earth.'

Inside episode 4

[Spoiler (click to open)]
They talk about the Eros dodging the Nauvoo scene, how it's a realistic universe, so seeing something that defies physics like that is bizarre and crazy. Realistically, Eros moved so fast, nobody would be able to see it, but they wanted to have Miller see and react to it. Naomi becomes Miller's guiding light and she made the effort to connect with him on a human level. She's the voice in his ear, she looks out for him and he's always on her mind. Initially they were going to concentrate on the Miller-Holden bond, but as they were writing, the warmest and the most personal moments were happening between Miller-Naomi.
