Wonder Woman Is The DC Queen ...and a Disney Princess?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wonder Woman's screenwriter, Allan Heinberg, talks about one of his main inspirations for the character of Diana. It's none other than The Little Mermaid's Ariel!

Heinberg goes so far as to call out Disney's The Little Mermaid as his inspiration: "The story as I see it is The Little Mermaid, specifically Disney’s incarnation." "This is a woman who has been raised in a very protective, sheltered life, she’s curious about what life is like outside and she wants to have her own experience," he said. "She wants to be where the people are.", Heinberg continued. The internet, of course, generated[receipts]

Ariana Grande Will Reportedly Give Manchester Victims and Their Families Lifetime Concert Passes

A source told RO: "All of the families of those who were killed, as well as all of those injured, are being given Ariana Grande concert tickets for life. The tickets will include VIP seats and backstage passes. Ariana knows that there is nothing she can do to bring back those who were killed, but she is trying to give them as much support as she can."


Leonardo DiCaprio's Pussy Posse is back and prowling around town with a poodle pup

Leonardo DiCaprio's Pussy Posse seems to be back and better than ever with the recent breakups of founding Pussy Posse members Tobey Maguire and Kevin Connolly. They've been making their presence known by making some age-appropriate appearances at events like a children's play where Tobey's daughter had a starring role in addition to their usual shenanigans with 20 year old models.

It now seems they're adding a dog to the mix as well; perhaps in a nod toward the (seemingly failed) rebrand of the "Pussy Posse" as the "Wolf Pack".

- Wants to be a positive influence for young girls: “I really want to leave a positive imprint in the fashion world, mostly regarding the media and the stereotypical beauty standard that is blasted all over every magazine you see, every article that pops up on your phone screen, every billboard you see while you’re driving down the street."
- Just shot her first film - Gringo, an action comedy from Australian director Nash Edgerton starring Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried: “It was just like playing my eighth-grade self."

Jay Z will bail fathers out of jail for Father's Day

While we wait for Beyoncé to announce the twins' names on Instagram, her husband Jay Z is doing some good work. He announced via an op-ed he wrote for TIME Magazine that he is donating to organizations that will assist in paying for bail bonds for fathers so they can be out of jail in time to celebrate Father’s Day in the US this Sunday. In his essay he writes that since producing Time: The Kalief Browder Story, he has become "obsessed with the injustice of the profitable bail bond industry." Jay Z also says that, "We can't fix our broken criminal justice system until we take on the exploitative bail industry.".

Five Musicians Who Became Successful After 30

25 is generally considered the cutoff age for unknown singers in the music industry, but not all singers get their break in their teens/twenties. Here are five musicians who defied the odds and found mainstream success later in life.

Venom, Black Cat, Silver Sable are joining the MCU??

Both Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Homecoming director Jon Watts have stated that neither Spider-Man spinoff in the works by Sony -- Venom and Silver and Black (the film starring Black Cat and Silver Sable) -- would be part of the MCU.

In comes Amazing Amy Pascal, who announces that actually, both films will be part of the MCU and that there is a chance Tom Holland could appear in both.

Is she making things up? Is Kevin lying? Is Amy telling the truth but Kevin didn't want the surprise to be ruined? Time will tell. You can see her make that announcement (and Feige's facial expressions) behind the cut:

Caitlyn Jenner comments on GOP baseball practice shooting: "Liberals can't even shoot straight"

- She continued: "As far as the people that were injured, it's an absolute shame. You just want them to recover. Fortunately the guy was a really bad shot… liberals can't even shoot straight."


Is Halsey here to save the female popstar?

-Not only is Halsey the only woman with a number one album this year, she's the first in 31 weeks since Lady Gaga released 'Joanne'.

-Halsey's song 'Closer' with the Chainsmokers from last year, is also the most recent appearance of a woman at the top of the Hot 100 singles chart.

-Some of the male chart dominance is because stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé are on hiatus at the moment but that doesn't explain why there hasn't been much new blood in the past seven or eight years.

-Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor have been the female artists debuting post-2010 who have seemingly come the closest to breaking through that wall of pop superstardom, but they haven't quite made it and talented artists like Tinashe and Carly Rae Jepson who seem to have everything you could ask for in a star somehow haven't clicked with the public.

-The industry's shift toward streaming has turned the tides in favor of EDM and hip-hop artists and the successful artists in both of those genres are almost exclusively male.

-Halsey seems to represent an even more commercially friendly version of the mindie star that has been popularized over the past few years with singers like Lana Del Rey and Lorde.

-Halsey's one of the only female popstars making music at the moment who people seem to be responding to in a way that gives her a genuine shot to break through.

Yoko Ono Will Get Songwriting Credit For "Imagine"

- "Imagine" was released in 1971 with John Lennon credited as the sole songwriter
- In a 1980 interview, Lennon said that the song "should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song because a lot of it — the lyric and the concept — came from Yoko. But those days I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution. But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book."
- On June 14, Ono, along with son Sean, received the National Music Publishers Association's new Centennial Song Award for "Imagine"
- The NMPA announced that Ono will be added to the song as a co-writer
- The CEO of the NMPA stated that some may oppose the move, thinking that it is a way to extend the copyright on "Imagine" since a song enters the public domain 70 years after the death of the last creator
- In actuality, "Imagine" has a fixed term of copyright of 95 years from its initial publication

In "I Don't Really Care" News: Japanese Girl Group AKB48 Holds Annual Election...

2017 has brought Japanese girl group AKB48's ninth annual Senbatsu election. The premise is management can swindle fans outta money by making them vote for their favorite member of the[Japanese]
(Why specify Japanese? Because AKB has sister groups in China, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, with a group coming Taiwan, and an alleged group coming to Mexico. These groups for the most part cannot compete in the Japanese elections unless they were formerly a member of one of the seven Japanese groups - members are sometimes shipped to one of the overseas groups to help it get off the group. The Chinese sister groups (SNH48, BEJ48, GNZ48, SHY48) and the Indonesian group (JKT48) each hold their own elections for their girls. Also, the girls from AKB
's "official rivals" groups (Nogizaka46 and Keyakizaka46) are not allowed to enter with the sole exception of Nogizaka member
Ikoma Rina who once had to be a member of both her group and AKB48's Team B for a year. She subsequently ranked at #14 (out of 250+ girls) in the 2014 elections.
48 groups. These groups include AKB48 (the mothership), SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, NGT48, and STU48.

There were a few scandals and drama that plagued this year's election, which made it all the more interesting.


[1. Popular members sit out]
1. Popular members sit out
  This year, many popular members elected to sit out of the elections. This included last year's #4 ranked Yamamoto Sayaka (queen), #5 ranked Kashiwagi Yuki (who probably didn't enter after last's year embrassment), #9 ranked Kodama Haruka, #10 ranked Muto Tomu and #18 ranked Iriyama Anna. This, combined with the fact that other popular members graduated or will graduate and chose not to participate (last year's #8 ranked Shimazaki Haruka, #16 ranked Kojima Haruna, and #37 Kizaki Yuria) meant that there was 20 spots open (out of 80 ranks shown) for new girls to ranked.
TL;DR: A lot of girls didn't compete this year

[2. NGT48 voting fiasco]

2. NGT48 voting fiasco
  There are a multitude of ways to vote for your favorite girl in the 48G elections. One way to do so is by entering a code you'd buy into a mobile app. Every group (AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, NGT48, and STU48) has their own mobile app where fans can vote for a girl from that particular team. When the 1st day voting results can in, there were a disportional amount of votes for girls from NGT48. NGT is a newer group, having been announced in 2015, debuting in 2016, and releasing their first single in 2017. It's not hard to imagine that the girls would not have extreme popularity amongst voters, or at least enough to rank very high. However, when the first day votes can in NGT's Ogino Yuka was ranked #1 with 55k votes. It seemed highly implusible that a girl who wasn't very popular would score 55k votes after one day of voting (and impossible, since every vote would need to be hand entered). Other NGT girls showed abnormal openings, leading fans to be believe that there was a glitch in the NGT mobile app that assigned members more votes than they got. A few fans even recorded themselves abusing the glitch to get their favorite member more votes! In the end, both AKS (the management company of all of the 48G groups) and the actual polling company said their was no glitch and Ogino and the other NGT girls earned their votes fair and square. Ogino would finish as the #5 ranked girl in this year's elections, the highest debut ranking for a girl in years.
TL;DR: NGT48 members accused of having benefited from glitch in voting system

[3. Actual Event is Cancelled]
3. Actual Event is Cancelled
    The reading of the election results is a huge events for the 48G and their fans. Each girl is given the chance to give a speech when they rank, and there is a concert for the groups and skits during the show. The entire event takes place for hours and can generate a lot of money for both the management company, the local economy, and the TV station that airs it. This year's event was to be held in Okinawa, an small southern island prefecture. However, as many fans already knew, Okinawa is hit by monsoon season around this time of year, meaning the island is hit by heavy and unpredictable rain. The management company also knew this and decided whatever payout they would get by holding the event in Okinawa outweighed the very high possibility that it would rain. 10,000 tickets were sold to the event, and hotels in the town around the event were packed with visitors. Of course, two days before the event management found out that there was to be a huge storm the
day of the event. So obviously, the event was cancelled, pissing off both fans and the girls who flew into Okinawa for the event. Most of the girls were scattered around the country since management started cancelling their flights to the island. They ended up holding an event inside a 700 seat venue where they read the names of the girls off, with some fans being lucky enough watch the event in a covered tent.
TL;DR: Actual concert event rained out, poor planning leads to thousands of pissed off nerds

[4. Sashihara Rino will not participate elections next year]
4. Sashihara Rino won't participate in SSK anymore
In a surprise to no one, Sashihara Rino wins her fourth SSK crown; this is also her third consecutive win. Rino also announced that she will not participate in any more SSK, she tired of duffing all her competitors. She received almost 100k more votes than the #2 ranked girl, Watanabe Mayu.
TL;DR: Queen Rino is tired of curb stomping Mayu Watanabe

[5. Watanabe Mayu announces her graduation]
5. Watanabe Mayu announces her graduation
  Popular member of AKB48's team B Mayu Watanabe announced her graduation (aka she's leaving the group) at the event. Mayu is the only member to rank in the top 5 in every election. She also won first place in 2014 election, and finished in second place this year. Mayu has also had succesful solo music career. Mayu is considered to be one of the most important members in AKB48 so her leaving is considered to be a huge loss. However, here announcement was overshadowed by the announcement that another member made at the event.
TL;DR: Mayu is tired of being curb stomped

[6. Sutou Ririka Is Getting Married]

6. Sutou Ririka Is Getting Married
  This year's #20 ranked member Sutuo Ririka of NMB48's team N announcded that she is getting married. She gave no more details and said she'd discuss her options with NMB's "adults" but wanted y'all to know that she's getting hitched. This is a big deal since AKB48 and related groups are BIG on their no dating policy (if y'all have even heard of this group and aren't weebs then it's because you heard of my bitch Minami Minegeshi's head shaving when she got caught dating) so she not only managed to get around her dating ban, she dated long enough to get engaged. Members of the 48G were pissed, and a few girls shaded Ms. Ririka in their speeches. No word if she's leaving NMB48, but fans are calling for her head.
TL;DR: Rirka wants y'all to know she's getting hitched

Miley Cyrus Doesn't Agree With Dolce & Gabbana's "Politics"

-Miley Cyrus' little brother Braison Cyrus made his modelling debut in D&G's Spring 2018 Milan Fashion Week Show over the weekend.
-Miley Cyrus took to Instagram to congratulate her brother even though she doesn't agree with D&G's politics.
-The "Malibu" singer wrote: "PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…but I do support your company's effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!"
-D&G reused a photo of Miley's brother along with the caption, "We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it's simply ignorant. We don’t need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!! #boycottdolcegabbana."
-They then went on to call her "ignorant" and said they refuse to work with her brother ever again.
-It's not clear what Miley's referring to when it comes to D&G's politics. There's so much to call them out on that it could take us all day.
