Robert Pattinson And FKA Twigs Are "Cooling Off"

Some quotes from a source:

“He is technically still with FKA twigs, but it doesn’t seem like it will last.” “They were serious at one point, but not anymore. The whole thing with Rob saying they are ‘kind of engaged’ speaks for itself. The relationship has been fizzling out. Katy is very good friends with Rob, but you never know what will happen in the future.”

Another source says:

“Rob already feels single. He and FKA have had major distance and tension between them for months now,” the source explained. “They really tried to make it work, and it’s not long until the split will be public. They have just been trying to figure out how to sort everything.” The insider continued, noting, “No one really understood what he saw in FKA, but they always supported him. As far as Katy goes, they have been good friends for a while. They have many mutual friends and have always kept in touch. They aren’t serious as of now, but Rob has always had an interest in Katy.”

GOP Bankrollers The Koch Brothers Are Secret Investors in "Wonder Woman" and Other WB Films

  • The Hollywood Reporter uncovered a secret web of financial investors including Bill Gates AND GOP Bankrollers The Koch Brothers over at Warner Brothers.

  • Our current Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin, who used to produce films for Warner Brothers, brought them on about 4 years ago.

  • Their investments have hit recent films Wonder Woman and Dunkirk and helped finance the upcoming film Ready Player One.

  • A source familiar with the deal says the brothers don't actually care about the films they're investing in, they just want to grow their portfolio, currently worth 96.2 Billion.

  • The source is worried that now that Hollywood is getting bankrolled by these major political heads, what is the future for film?


ONTD, how do you feel about supporting films that have been invested in by these two literal devils?

Todd Haynes Planning "Velvet Underground" Documentary; Plus other related news

Todd Haynes (Director 'Velvet Goldmine,' 'Carol') is in the planning stages of a documentary on rock group, The Velvet Underground

Haynes spoke to Variety about his previous and upcoming projects, one of which includes a documentary on The Velvet Underground.

The band was discovered by filmmaker artist, Barbara Rubin, who introduced the band to Andy Warhol and his Silver Factory in 1965. The group started a multi-media concert experience called The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which incorporated light shows, film, art and dance. Haynes says the band, “came out of a truly experimental cross-section of film, contemporary art, and a rejection of mainstream consumer culture at a very rich and fertile time of the 1960s in New York City."

Although there is little documentation on the band, Haynes expresses his excitement in researching and obtaining archives for this project. He says the documentary "needs to be an intensely visual experience."

The untitled documentary will feature interviews by surviving members as well as other members of the 1960's New York art scene. Original band members of The Velvet Underground include Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Moe Tucker - Later, Nico was introduced and appears on their debut 1967 album, "The Velvet Underground & Nico." Nico passed away in 1988, Morrison in 1995, and Reed in 2013.

Robert Pattinson on fame and fecal-matter transplants in GQ

Taffy Akner profiled Robert Pattinson for GQ's September cover story.
They were trying to decide what activity to do together for the profile. Rob wanted to do ayahuasca with Taffy, but they decided there was too much vomiting involved for an interview.

Another suggestion from Rob:
“Let’s get fecal-matter transplants." "You can have an athlete’s shit put inside you and then you’re an athlete afterwards.”

He didn't try to do a lot of big blockbusters after Twilight:
“I think you have to have a specific type of confidence to be in those movies.”

During the height of his twilight fame he used to ride in the trunks of cars constantly.
“People were like, ‘It’s fine, who cares?’ ” he says now. “ ‘They’re just photos or whatever.’ They’ll say, ‘Just live your life.’ But that’s not life for me, if someone’s observing it.”

Rita Ora receives the 1st Variety + H&M Conscious award at Variety's Power of Young Hollywood event

Last night Rita received the first ever Variety + H&M Conscious award for her philanthropic work.

Rita's been active with UNICEF, amfAR and other organizations. In 2015 Rita was named honorary ambassador of Kosovo for her work helping the country rebuild from the war.
“I’m a prime example of somebody that you shouldn’t throw out or not let into your country. I’m one of those cases that you just never know who you’re declining from your country… it’s about giving people something to believe in.”
She accepted her award on behalf of her parents.

One of the recent causes that touched her heart was the Grenfall Tower fire as she grew up in the area and knew some people who were affected personally.
“Growing up in government homes, it’s like your only bit of sanctuary,” she says. “It’s big, it’s like your only place where you feel safe, so [the disaster] was really off-putting for me.”
The Grenfall Tower fire relief fund will receive a $10,000 donation from Variety and H&M.

Lamar was featured on the remix of Taylor Swift's Kidz Bop diss track, Bad Blood. He added: “No! On the record, no. Which makes it even more funny now, for sure. That’s far beyond my concern. I have to stay away from that, for sure. That’s some real beef.”


Mariah Carey’s Ex-Choreographer speaks out on those lackluster performances

After the New Year’s Eve fiasco, Mariah fired Anthony Burrell, her now-former choreographer and creative director.

"It's just typical Mariah. Mariah is clear: when she doesn’t wanna do something, she doesn’t do it. She’s performing with lackluster and no fucks given, and it’s taking away her star."​

"Working with an artist like Mariah, who’s not a mover first, it’s always a challenge to get them to think physically and not just vocally. You always have to keep in mind that they’re a singer first. The priority is not teaching them 100 counts of 8, or endless routines. I wanted to give Mariah a modern push to revamp her, give her a fresher, more modern feel, make her more aware of her body and her lines, and not look like her feet hurt when she’s walking."

Taylor Swift's sexual assault trial: day three

Follow up to this and this post

- Despite claims that it was Mueller's boss that groped Taylor instead (??), photo evidence shows that this was not the case, with the photo of Eddie Haskell and Taylor being a normal M&G photo.
- One of the assistants said Swift told them shortly after the photo with Mueller was taken: "Dude, that guy just grabbed my ass."
- Others testified in prior depositions that they had never seen Swift react to a photo-shoot in that way.
- Backtracking on yesterday's comments that he "touched her ribs", Mueller now says that he had "no idea" where his hand was
- Mueller acknowledged that he told approximately 37 people in the radio industry about the allegations between him and Swift and his firing from KYGO
-Mueller admits he has never filled out an application for a job outside of the radio industry, though he says he had sought jobs. Yesterday he stated that he had applied for a dozen jobs.
- He admits he’s only sought on-air personality jobs in top 20 markets
- It is alleged that Mueller was drunk when he got into the room to take the photo.

Leah Remini on her Anti-Scientology Crusade (and Elisabeth Moss)

To follow up on this ONTD post - Elisabeth Moss Left the Room When Leah Remini Won a TCA Award - Remini says:

"Elisabeth Moss believes that she can't talk to me," says Remini. "There's a thing in Scientology called 'acceptable truth.' It means you only say what's acceptable to the public. But she believes that I'm an antisocial personality — because I've spoken out against Scientology. So she isn't allowed to talk to me. And me knowing that, I wouldn't put her in the awkward position."

When asked what would happen if she saw Elisabeth Moss at the Emmys: "I would, of course [congratulate her]," says Remini. "I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families."

Celebs react to Kim Jong Un v. Trump + FBI raids Paul Manafort's home

- This battle between Kim Jong Un and the Urinator-in-Chief is one that literally no one signed up for. Trump improvised his comments re: North Korea without running it by advisors. Both Democrats and Republicans have bashed Trump's comments and called it reckless. World leaders are also condemning Trump's remarks.

- The FBI and Mueller coordinated a pre-dawn raid at Paul Manafort's home on July 26th. They obtained a search warrant based on the fact that they did not trust Manafort to cooperate with the investigation. The FBI woke Manafort up early morning before raiding his home. They searched his home for tax documents and foreign banking records.
