Chris Hemsworth, Diego Luna, and Brie Larson Help Keep the Oceans Clean

chrishemsworth: I've spent a large part of my life in and around the ocean, it's where a lot of my happiest memories came from. If I had anxieties or worries I'd head to the ocean and it was always the place where I could reset and be 100% present. My experience in the Maldives made it obvious how our short-term use of plastic has a long-term damaging effect on our oceans. I’m thrilled to be a part of this program, because I want to inspire people to find a solution and protect the world’s oceans so future generations can enjoy them like I do. #100Islandsprotected #sponsored

Lauren Jauregui from Fifth Harmony Pens 'Love Letter' to LGBTQ Community

Lauren Jauregui from Fifth Harmony writes a beautiful and touching letter to the LGBTQ community, also discussing her decision to come out as bisexual last year.

"The way in which [Trump's] campaign was run scared me. His obvious misogyny, his homophobia, his dismissal of the arts, and his incessant ideology pushing of minority communities as terrorists, rapists, and criminals truly made me feel terrified for my future and the future of the children growing up in this world right now. It made me wonder if people really felt this way; and when he won, it truly broke my heart. It made me come to terms with the fact that the part of me that loved women was invalidated and that she was an important part of my story and who I was. Accepting her in one sentence within the context of a whole political commentary being what caught the world's attention made me realize how scandalous it still is as a concept for humans to connect with their souls."

Happy Pride month everyone. ONTD what are you doing to celebrate?

Mayim Bialik advocates against open relationships; says women aren't biologically wired for them

Mayim Bialik has uploaded a new YouTube video laying out why she doesn't "get" open relationships.

-"The notion of men spreading their seed is kind of an over-simplified and misogynistic take on our species, and with open relationships, women too can spread their seed. It's liberating for women to be seen as equal sexual participants, rather than the object of men's whims. I get that, too. Here's what I don't get about open relationships, though: people in open relationships are exchanging one cultural construct for another — that of equating male and female sexuality. But as a scientist, I'm here to ruin everybody's good time and to tell you that the assumption that male and female sexuality can be treated pretty much the same is in direct opposition to our biology."

-She goes on to regurgitate the brand new, never-before-heard argument that since men produce a lot of sperm and women only produce one egg per menstrual cycle, men are naturally inclined to have sex with a lot of women while women are inclined to look for one mate.

-"Take home message: Lean in to your biology."

-Says that people in open relationships are more prone to getting STDs, because "people aren't protecting themselves."

-Says open relationships are too hard to maintain because she can barely maintain a monogamous relationship.

David Lynch Vindicated at Cannes 25 Years Later; McLachlan Talks about the Return

To paraphrase what he said: It was hard, and he doesn't take doppleganger Cooper with him.


25 Years after Fire Walk With Me was booed by Cannes audiences (Lynch later reflected that the experience made him feel like he was made of glass), a different crowd made Lynch tear up for different reasons as they gave him a standing ovation after watching the first episodes of the new season of Twin Peaks.

Katy Perry is making $25m for American Idol. Paula Abdul & Mariah Carey feel...things.

Paula Abdul wants you to know she was NOT getting paid $25 million to be on American Idol.
Randy Jackson, dawg, made jokes about coming back to Idol instead of Ryan Seacrest.

X17Online is reporting that Mariah Carey clenched her teeth and was referring to Katy Perry's Idol deal when she said, "Great." (Although it could be argued that she was replying to the heckler calling her beautiful and asking how she was 18x...)
What do you think ONTD?

Do you think Katy Perry is worth $25 million to be on American Idol, ONTD?
