Julie Andrews: Trump's budget cuts to the arts are "heartbreaking"




· Said in an interview with The Project that Trump's cuts to the arts boggle her mind & that she doesn't know why you would want to cut funding to the arts, considering how important they are
· Co-wrote a CNN op-ed with her daughter two weeks ago in defense of arts funding; it was released at nearly the same time as Trump's budget was announced, just by coincidence
· Talks about being recognized as Mary Poppins in public bathrooms

Shaq is a flat-earther

Retired pro-basketball star Shaquille O'Neal, who has a doctoral degree in education, recently discussed his views about the shape of the earth on a podcast.


"It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat."

Thandie Newton speaks out about the lack of diversity in UK television series


Thandie Newton has spoken out about how the increased popularity of period dramas in the UK has led to a lack of roles for black actors and actresses on television in her native country, and the impact this has had on her own career.

"I love being here, but I can't work, because I can't do Downton Abbey, can't be in Victoria, can't be in Call The Midwife. Well, I could, but I don't want to play someone who's being racially abused."

"I'm not interested in that, don't want to do it. There just seems to be a desire for stuff about the royal family, stuff from the past, which is understandable, but it just makes it slim pickings for people of colour."
