Katy Perry hints at possible reconciliation with Taylor Swift


As most of you know, Katy is currently doing promo for her new studio album Witness. She did a 'wordless interview' with the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and got asked about TayTay. If you don't include Swish Swish, this would be the sixth time Katy acknowledges Taylor this era (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and her tone has dramatically changed. Gone are the iconic days of associating Taylor Swift with Regina George and new times are ahead of us: is the alternate universe the one where Taylor and Katy bury the hatchet? Let's see.

Süddeutsche Zeitung: You are feuding with Taylor Swift. Is there any chance for reconciliation?

Kevin Spacey Jokes About Coming Out

“Whoopi, how long have you been in that closet?” Spacey asked. “Well Kevin, it depends on who you ask,” she responded, winning an uproarious, though easy, laugh from the audience.

Later, as a part of a bit in which Spacey is getting advice from previous award show hosts, Billy Crystal advises him, “If all else fails, put on a dress.” He then dresses as Norma Desmond, Glenn Close’s character in the current Sunset Boulevard revival, and dramatically belts, “I”m coming out,” before stopping, “No, wait, no…”

Star Trek Actor Announces Run for NYS Congress



Actor John G. Hertzler has announced that he's going to run against incumbent Republican Tom Reed for NYS' 23rd Congressional District Seat. Hertzler played Klingon General Martok on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Hertzler said "I disagree with everything Reed supports, including his unrelenting support of the Trumpster."

Hertzler already has one up on Reed's senpai Trump in that he has political experience. He ran and was elected on the Democratic ticket to the Ulysses Town Board in 2013, and he was reelected in 2016.

Twist Because It's 2017 Of Course There's a Twist: Hertzler plans to run both as himself and "in the persona of Mark Twain", to present his ideas "through the brilliant humorist for all ages"; as an apparent tribute to Twain himself and actor Hal Holbrook, who's portrayed Twain on stage for years. Twain lived in Elmira.

And you may, or may not, recall in 2016 Hertzler - along with fellow actor James Cromwell - was arrested for protesting plans for gas storage in underground salt caverns around Seneca Lake. (That's them showing off their citations in the photo; Hertzler's on the left.)

He's like the third person to announce they're running against Reed and I'm here for anyone wanting to ruin his day.

New Carly Rae Jepsen think piece sends Twitter in to an uproar!

beauty-2015-10-carly-rae-jepsen-bangs-main.jpg
Some takes from the article:

- Adult women love Carly Rae Jepsen because of the teenageriness(sic) of her music
- Adult women want to be a teen girl and cannot ever become full adults
- "The reality remains that real teen girls and adult women simply do not belong to the same cultural space."

Full article at the source: link

Should Carly stop writing songs about crushes, unrequited love, heartbreaks and instead write more grown up songs like the pains of finding quality childcare, taxes, and 401K plans?

Rachel Weisz compares "The Favorite" to "All About Eve"



  • The film is a "black comedy" that is very much in the vein of Lanthimos's other work, but  it's different in that its English History not a fantasy world.

  • Weisz plays Sarah Churchill, who in the film is portrayed as basically running the country from behind the scenes.

  • Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) is a bit useless as a Queen.

  • The dynamic is a bit like All about Eve in that the young Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) comes to court and sort of usurps Sarah for the role of the favorite.

Megyn Kelly tries it defending her interview with Alex Jones

Megyn Kelly's interview with crazy ass Alex Jones is set to air this upcoming Sunday. She has called it a "riveting exchange" and tried to deflect from his crazy far-right nutjob ass to call him a libertarian.

People are, as they should be, rightly pissed that NBC would give this nutjob the air time. And on Father's Day no less. Megyn hilariously defended her interview by saying that her job is to shine a light on a man who has a fan in the President and who has given his site WH press credentials.

Jones is best known for believing the Sandy Hook massacre that resulted in the death of 20 children was faked as a way to pass gun control legislation. He also thinks the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11 were govenment-involved attacks, NASA faked the Moon Landing, and a Democratic Party child sex-trafficking ring took place in the basement of a DC pizza place. He recently lost a court case for custody of his children after his ex-wife called him unstable.

Will NBC pull this? Will Megyn ever be shit?? Discuss.

The rundown: John Oliver thinks that the current UK / Brexit situation is so dire that we may as well send in an intergalactic space lord with a bucket on his head to handle the upcoming negotiations.

Alison Brie made a major statement about the state of Hollywood.




How Hollywood today compares to the industry in the 1980s
"The audition process has not changed that much. I auditioned for three lines on an episode of Entourage that I had to go on in a bikini! Or like shorts and the tiniest shorts. And they were like, 'Ok, can you take your top off now?'"

[clarification]




The ongoing lack of roles for women.
"I've gone through auditions for Marvel movies and auditioned a million times for roles with three lines and you are begging for them. And I'd be glad to get them! It's brutal, it just is."
