25 CLASSIC SONGS THAT STILL GIVE US THE CHILLS



"Tears in Heaven" (Eric Clapton)

about: "Tears in Heaven" is a song by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings, from the 1991 Rush film soundtrack. The song was written about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his 4-year-old son, Conor. In an interview with Sue Lawley in 1992, Clapton said of the song, "There is a song that I’ve written for a movie, but in actual fact it was in the back of my head but it didn’t really have a reason for being until I was scoring this movie which I did a little while ago and then it sort of had a reason to be. And it is a little ambiguous because it could be taken to be about Conor but it also is meant to be part of the film." Conor fell from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment building owned by his mother's friend on March 20, 1991. Clapton arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident.

Britney Spears Sells Out Manila in 30 min & Delays Israeli Elections



International Pop Icon and Diamond album selling Recording artist Britney Spears has caused Israel to delay their elections. Party officials told Israeli news outlet Haaretz that many Labor supporters would rather watch Living Legend Britney Spears than vote. Over 15,000 tickets were sold within the first hour of availability for the event at Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park. They also thought moving the date of the primaries would ‘make it easier for people to reach polling stations’, because of the heavy traffic expected in the city.

The Britney slayage continues in Manila, Britney sold out 20,000 tickets within 30 minutes. As of 4:30PM, tickets for the General Admission, Patron, VIP, and SVIP sections have been sold out via SM Tickets. Fans are upset and demand a second night added.


Spears officially added 3 dates in Japan including a stadium date for the Asian leg of her World Tour. More dates will be expected to be announced in the upcoming weeks including stops in Europe and South America.

The View talks about Ivanka's response to Oprah's BFF and CBS News correspondent Gayle King in regards to being complicit. Whoopi complains that she might not be helping 45 enough. Jed says she likes Ivanka (?!) in that she stopped the EO that would've stripped LGTBQ worker protections. However, Sunny was quick to say where the fuck was Ivanka when women's worker protections were stripped.

The panel is outraged that there is lack of communication to the public in regards to the missiles being fired into the East Asia Sea by North Korea and the chemical attacks happening in Syria. They are all bothered he's silent.

Kylie's woeful Pepsi ad is discussed at lengths by the panel. Jed had a negative reaction in regards to the ad. It made the protest look like a block party. Sunny chimes in on how it's appropriating Black Lives Matter movement and using social justice to sell soda.

The panel talks about what not to share on social media. Joy is shocked that people post photos of the dead on Facebook. Sara complains that nobody put on the list people who are overtly OTT about their significant other.

Helen Hunt joins the panel. She talks about a mixup with Jodie Foster. She promotes her new show "Shots Fired" and directing Feud.

Alec Baldwin claims not to have known Nikki Reed was 16 when they filmed sex scenes


  • In his new memoir Baldwin says that he flipped out on the producers when he found out Nikki Reed was 17 when they filmed the 2006 movie Mini's First Time where she plays a high-school student turned escort and he plays her stepfather/client (OP note: seriously? WTF is this movie?)

  • Two of the producers and the film's writer/director all remember that everyone knew Reed was actually 16 during filming.

  • One of the producers also alleges that the lead was between four actresses and Alec Baldwin handpicked Nikki Reed.

  • "I read [the memoir] and was like, 'What the f—. Of course he totally knew how old she was. That’s why there’s no nudity in the movie. He knew before we even cast the movie. I think he’s been method acting Trump too much and he doesn’t know the difference between fake news anymore."

Handler candidly says,"“I wonder why he needed to self-medicate.

Khoudia Diop Celebrates Her Nyenyo Culture In This Stunning Photo Series




memories about Senegal
"What I remember most, is the diversity within the Senegalese culture (cultures, traditions, beliefs). I also remember the great pride we have for our traditional clothing; while still loving to wearing modern fashion. Very inspiring! Oh, and also the food. I love Senegalese food! My mom makes some of the best. My favorite dish is “thiebou djeun” (fried fish and rice). So yummy—everyone should try it!"

life in Senegal
"Life is very relaxed in Senegal. Basically, we don’t worry about many things, and it’s called the country of “teranga” (welcome) where everybody cares about their neighbors."

her beauty standards
"I was taught to carry myself as a Senegalese woman—with respect for her elders and heritage; honor, and really about the woman you are, and how you carry yourself and treat others. This is why I think beauty is much more than appearance—it’s the way you care about yourself and others."

Freeform orders Marvel's Squirrel Girl comedy "New Warriors" to series



New Warriors revolves around six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world...even if the world isn't ready. New Warriors explores the journey into adulthood, except in this world, they're not quite super and not yet heroes and the guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.

The series will feature fan-favorite "Squirrel Girl" (Doreen Green) as a totally empowering fan girl-tough, optimistic and a natural leader. Doreen is confident and has the powers of a squirrel ... She's acrobatic, can fight and talk to other squirrels. Her most important trait is that she has faith in people and teaches them to believe in themselves.

Watch Jon Gosselin awkwardly pace across a stage in a hula skirt in his "stripping" debut



So a few nights ago for his 40th birthday Jon Gosselin decided to make his debut as a stripper at a club in Atlantic City. Women actually had to pay $40 just to get in the door to see him. When Jon finally took the stage he ended up just kind of walking back and forth in a hula skirt, briefly touching the pole, and then finally taking off his button down shirt to reveal another beneath... all to "I'm Too Sexy".

He later went to Facebook and said the event was really just a "social experiment" and that an undisclosed portion, but not all, of the money he made for doing nothing is going to St. Jude's.
