Katy Perry inadvertently outrages Australian koala activists

- Katy filmed an ad with Myer announcing a 8,000 ticket giveaway for her concert.
- In the ad, she tells her dog, "Let's go and chase some koalas, Nugget!"

- "Koalas attacked by dogs is one of their biggest threats and primary reasons for presenting to wildlife hospitals across Australia," said an activist.
- "Perry is a role model to so many young people, and this just destroys all the good work we do to try to encourage people not to let their dogs come into contact with koalas... Learn first hand why your comment should NOT be streamed across the nation."
- 110 koalas yearly are attacked by dogs, almost all fatally. Less than 100,000 koalas are left in the wild.

Disability Organization Slams ‘Blind’ for Casting Alec Baldwin in Lead Role

The upcoming film “Blind,” starring Alec Baldwin as a novelist who loses his sight in a car crash.
It has drawn criticism for casting an able-bodied actor as the blind lead.
The Ruderman Family Foundation, a leading organization advocating for disability rights, spoke out against the film :
“Alec Baldwin in ‘Blind’ is just the latest example of treating disability as a costume. We no longer find it acceptable for white actors to portray black characters. Disability as a costume needs to also become universally unacceptable.”

Steven Yeun Talks Walking Dead, Representation, and Okja

  • Steven was offered a lot of leading roles this past pilot season, including a CIA guy on the run, a postapocalyptic world ex-cop and a “non-stereotypical genius.” He turned them all down. Guess which shows, ONTD!

  • He very politely states he thinks Glenn didn't get his due on The Walking Dead. He felt "they" didn’t acknowledge the connection people had with the character until he was gone, and his death scene was gratuitous. While he was grateful for the solo Entertainment Weekly cover, he felt it should have happened sooner, since he never got his own until Glenn's death. He also calls out the lack of Glenn merchandise.

  • The character of K in Okja was written specifically for him as a Korean-American, who has a different experience. He says it was crazy to have a role written for him, but also awesome.

  • Bobby Lee’s story about them auditioning for the same five-line part comes up, and Steven doesn’t blame the casting director. He talks about how the system is tilted against Asian-Americans and how people are ready for mainstream success and visibility. He also applauds everyone calling out the bullshit.

  • He treads carefully on the Tilda Swinton/Margaret Cho debacle, as well as the Tilda/Dr Strange casting.

  • His son was conceived in South Korea during Okja filming.


Please read the whole interview, it's fantastic.

LCD Soundsystem’s Gavin Russom Comes Out as Transgender

Russom said she has been wanting to come out for years. “This is my fifth decade being alive, and in each of those decades, there’s been a time where I’ve tried to say, ‘Hey, I think I’m transgender!’ This was even before that word existed.”

Russom added that she “could not imagine” continuing to pretend to be someone she’s not on stage for the next year, especially as the band prepares for its upcoming tour and album cycle in support of American Dream, due Sept. 1. Coming out has left Russom feeling more connected to her bandmates and their catalog.

Animal Shelter Disputes Lena Dunham’s Story About Lamby, the Dog She Gave Away

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

- A few weeks ago, Lena wrote about re-homing her dog, Lamby, "after four years of challenging behavior and aggression"
- Lena claims Lamby suffered terrible abuse as a puppy and had multiple owners before her
- She detailed his adoption in a New Yorker article and showed him off in a Vogue magazine spread
- Now, the animal shelter, BARC, where Lena adopted Lamby is disputing her story
- The shelter clapped back: “We checked the records for Lamby. He was ‘owner surrendered, not enough time,’ so we do not know where she got ‘multiple owners that abused the dog.’”
- And: “If Lamby had a bad past or was abused, do you think BARC would have adopted him to Lena knowing she’s a new star and put her — or the dog — in that situation? We would have told her if the dog had issues. We are a no-kill shelter. We don’t lie about the dogs’ histories because that gets them returned — and mentally it’s not good for dogs.”
- And then: “It’s just hard to believe the dog was nasty when she took Lamby to every green room with her when Girls was still a thing 4 years ago.”
- Lena's rep has no comment.
- Someone close to Lena says that several vets told Lena that Lamby had “past abuse” and even “possible brain damage.”

Lena Headey recalls disturbing audition experience

The actress also admits that refusing to flirt with casting directors has lost her jobs.
"When I was in my twenties, and doing a lot of audition tapes in the States, a casting director told me: 'The men take these tapes home and watch them and say, 'Who would you fuck ?'"
"I've never played the game of going in to auditions and flirting; I've never done it."

She also spoke of her struggle at being heard on set as a woman :
"I said to a female colleague, 'Do you find that you have to say the same things seven times, whereas a man says it once and everyone listens?'"
"Male counterparts can say the same thing and everyone's like, 'Oh, that's a great idea,' and I'm like, 'I just said that 19 times but you chose not to listen or take it on board.'"


Does This Photo Show Amelia Earhart After Her Plane Disappeared?

According to HISTORY’s upcoming investigative special “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence,” retired federal agent Les Kinney scoured the National Archives for records that may have been overlooked in the search for the lost aviator. Among thousands of documents he uncovered was a photograph stamped with official Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) markings reading “Marshall Islands, Jaluit Atoll, Jaluit Island, Jaluit Harbor.” In the photo, a ship can be seen towing a barge with an airplane on the back; on a nearby dock are several people.

Kinney argues the photo must have been taken before 1943, as U.S. air forces conducted more than 30 bombing runs on Jaluit in 1943-44. He believes the plane on the barge is the Electra, and that two of the people on the dock are Earhart and Noonan. As part of the program’s investigation, Doug Carner, a digital forensic analyst, examined the photo and determined it was authentic and had not been manipulated, while Kent Gibson, another forensic analyst who specializes in facial recognition, said it was “very likely” the individuals in it are Earhart and Noonan. Both analysts identified the ship in the photo as the Japanese military vessel Koshu Maru, which is thought to be the ship that took Earhart and Noonan away after their crash landing.

#EarhartLostEvidence premieres this Sunday, July 9th at 9/8c on HISTORY.
