Kpop group Red Velvet's "Red Flavor" was originally intended for Little Mix!



Songwriting/production duo Caesar & Loui did an interview for the site ToneGlow:

Red Velvet's "Red Flavor" is a massive hit and it is, in my opinion, the K-pop song of the summer. I feel like you don't really get a sense of how propulsive and joyful the song really is until the song slows down with Wendy's final line. Even then, there are a lot of details in the song that I feel like are easy to miss. What was the process like for writing this song?

This one we wrote by ourselves. It was actually aimed for the UK band Little Mix since we had a meeting with one of their A&Rs at the time. But we felt like it could work for the K-pop market as well! The song started with the track and the low voice you can hear in the intro and during the chorus. After that we just wrote the melodies and played around with the track. The result was the song "Dance With Nobody". It was the original title before the lyrics were translated into Korean. We hired our good friend and great singer Ylva Dimberg (writer; f(x), Girls' Generation, Taemin, etc.) to sing the demo of the song and you can actually still hear her background vocals in the pre-chorus! Finishing this song actually took a little bit longer than usual. We took a break from the song for a few months before finishing it just to listen to it with fresh ears. We’re really happy with how the song turned out. Red Velvet and SM did a really good job with the song!

@ Mixers - what do y'all think?
@ Kpop stans - at the source they also talk about working on LOONA's "Singing in the Rain", SHINee's "Wishful Thinking" (a piece of art!!!), f(x)'s "Spit it Out" as well as a few other songs - an interesting read tbh!

Youtube Sensation That Poppy Exposed

A popular YouTube channel directed at finding the background story of famous youtubers has gone and dug up the mysterious past of singer/youtube sensation That Poppy. Michael McCrudden revealed Poppy's past and how she came to be before she was online and performing on tv shows like Late Late Night With James Corden.

  • Her real name is Moriah Perriera and her dad was a drummer for the rockettes and cyndi lauper, so she wanted to be a singer.

  • Poppy was originally played by a girl named Mars Argo, who was dating Titanic Sinclair at the time and essentially acting the same as poppy is now in videos. When they broke up and Moriah (now poppy) came into the picture, Mars disappeared off the internet completely and the old work was deleted.... and Moriah took over.

  • The common denominator is the creepy Titanic Sinclair who is rumoured to be dating Moriah now.

An oral history of the time a dog ate a heart on 'One Tree Hill'



* Actor James Lafferty on the day of shooting: "It was one of the few moments I can remember where everybody was talking about it. Like, when you walked into the makeup trailer, or you know, even a transportation driver has read it and you’re talking about it with them. Pretty much the first person you saw, it was the main topic of conversation."

* Schwahn on the criticism post-episode that the show had jumped the shark: "First of all, we were more than 100 episodes in. Second of all, we jumped the shark in, like, Episode 2. Nathan and Haley got married in high school."

* Script coordinator Bryan Garcia on the scene's legacy: "I always tell people: If we had done this super-earnest version [of that story], no one would be talking about it all these years later. To this day, everyone says, 'Oh, you worked on One Tree Hill? That’s where that dog ate Dan’s heart, right?'"

* The dog managed to get the heart and run with it in one take. The ep's director Joe Davola on what came next: "And then I said to myself, 'Now I got to get Chad’s reaction.' That was probably the bigger challenge."

* Chad Michael Murray declined to comment for the article.

Late Night Round Up: Colbert, Corden, Kimmel, Fallon, Meyers, Bee, and Noah


The Daily Show with Trevor Noah


Yesterday night's late night shows put heavy emphasize on Trump's comments of "they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." The comment was made when asked about North Korea during a meeting about opioids from his golf club in New Jersey. Other topics that became late night fodder was the no-knock FBI raid on Paul Manafort and Trump's folder of good news about himself. Our weekly Samantha Bee chose to cover the subject of Steve Bannon, the judicial appointments that Trump has made and spotlighting the badass Peshmerga Women.

Who was out and about yesterday doing a promo tour?

- On Colbert, it was Claws' Niecy Nash, RPattz is doing promo for Good Time which is making it's US debut after being released at the 2017 Cannes, and the Tenth Doctor David Tennant.
- On Corden, it was Ingrid Goes West's Elizabeth Olsen and The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature's Maya Rudolph. Both are doing promo for a movie that has a release date of August 11th in the US.
- On Kimmel, it was Jim Parsons talking about Big Bang Theory and Discovery Channel's docuseries First In Human: The Trials of Building 10. One of the breakout stars from this summer Damson Idris from FX's Snowfall.

Taylor takes the stand in assault trial




Taylor Swift took the stand today in the assault trial against former DJ and current douchebag David Mueller....and she wasn't having any of the defense's bulls**t.

Some choice moments from Taylor included:

*telling the defense the reason the front of her skirt wasn't lifted in the meet and greet photo is because her ass in in the back of her body.

* telling the defense their client could have taken a normal photo with her when they tried to imply that she could have stopped the meet and greet right then and there if she felt uncomfortable.

*telling the defense she was leaning closer to Mueller's girlfriend because unlike Mr. Mueller, his girlfriend didn't have a hand on her ass.

*telling the defense she was not going to let them assign her blame for Mueller getting fired, that he made his own choices that led to that.

*Overall, Taylor said that unlike Mueller, she's not changing her story, that they can ask her every day what's happening in that photo and her story is never going to change because that's what happened.

Anton Zaslavski opens up about his millisecond relationship with Selena Gomez




Anton Zaslavski opens up about his millisecond record label stunt relationship with Selena Gomez. “Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends’ phones. I was pissed, [though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” the DJ, 27, explained. Both collaborated on the ear ache that was "I Want You to Know". “She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”, says the producer who resembles Link from the video game Zelda. Currently Selena Gomez is dating starboy the Weeknd. Gomez is slated to work with Woody Allen and released the worst song of the year "Bad Liar", which she didn't contribute her vocals in. Zedd struck gold this year with his monster hit "Stay", but regressed by releasing "Get Low" with human cornball Liam Payne.

Targeted social media callout campaigns are destroying young adult literature



Targeted social media callout campaigns are causing a lot of controversy in the world of young adult literature.

The campaigns tend to be driven by adult readers of teen novels who seek to bar problematic works of fiction from being sold at bookstores.

Book publishers don't really care, since to them all publicity is good publicity, and a lot of what happens on social media rarely has an effect on a consumer's spending habits.

One particular book which received backlash was Laurie Frost's The Black Witch, which was called out as being racist, ableist, and homophobic in a review that was posted seven weeks before its publication date.

Despite the social media outrage, The Black Witch ended up charting at #1 on Amazon's Teen/YA Fantasy chart.

In the past few months, young adult novels by Nicola Yoon, Stephanie Elliot, Sarah J. Maas, Erin Beaty, and Maggie Stiefvater were called out for either being ableist, heterocentrist, racist, or having the potential to trigger survivors of eating disorders.

Teen readers, the primary readers of young adult fiction, have chosen to discuss young adult fiction in private groups online away from the adult-driven controversies that flood platforms like Twitter and Goodreads.

Zedd on Billboard: Explains 'How It Went Down' with Liam Payne Collaboration "Get Low"


• The song was originally intended for a band [not specified which band].

• "Get Low" started off with chords...produced a beat over it. Started to sound very "Summer-y" and strayed far from what he originally intended. That band turned it down via text which did not surprise Zedd.

• He started working on the song alone and was looking for a vocalist. Cut to a few months later Zedd is introduced to Lime and it was "bro..." at first sight (out of all the Equinox gyms in LA and he had to walk into mine). Lime then visits Zedd at his Hollywood Hills home and they both go on a romantic bro date and share each others music.

• Things weren't always on the up & up however as the brolationship hit a rough patch when Liam was in London and Zedd in LA so recording their duet "Get Low" proved difficult. But like with any power couple the two worked through it and Lime recorded his vocals in London while Zedd completed production in Los Angeles. Fin.

Chris Brown Talks Rihanna in Documentary Nobody Asked For


Collapse )

Chris says he admitted to Rihanna that he slept with another woman. She doesn't trust his ass after that and the two verbally and physically fight for months after that.

"...like I don't like you slapping me. If I go on stage I got a scratch on my face and I got to explain it like 'oh I fell.' Or like...or you if you got a scar or bruise you gotta put make up on. I fee like...shit...like I'm not ever trying to put my hands on any female."

The night Chris lost his damn mind...he gets a text from the other woman that says she'll see him at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party. Rihanna reads it and gets upset in the car. Says Rihanna started hitting him and that triggered him to being "mean" and then "punched her" and "busted her lip." Was in "shock" when he saw what he had done to her.

She then "spit" on his face and that enraged him even more. She was then trying to grab for his phone again in the car to throw it out the window. She then "grabs his nuts" and when she did that he says that's when he "bit her arm" while he was driving.

Ryan Murphy Thinks Homophobia Killed Gianni Versace





  • “More than why [Versace] was killed, I think it was why it was allowed to happen,” Ryan Murphy said of the involvement of homophobia in the killing o Gianni Versace, subject of the upcoming season of American Crime Story.

  • At the time, Andrew Cunanan [Gianni's killer] managed to make his way around the country after killing at least five people and despite of he being on the FBI's most-wanted list and assumed to be living in South Florida, Miami police refused to put up Wanted posters [because most of the victims were open gay men according to Ryan].

  • Murphy says that the Versace family will probably like certain things and be uncomfortable by others if they watch the show. He's going to address Gianni being HIV positive which is something that was never pubicly confirmed by his relatives.

  • Ryan also approached Antonio D’Amico [Gianni's longtime partner] to tell him he will make everyone fall in love with his relationship with Versace.

Interview excerpts:

  • She and Meth Damon used to live close from each other for a long time before they met on Fargo. They would go to the same groceries stores and everything.

  • Thinks that good roles for women are still hard to come by because Hollywood has no idea what to do with 30+ women so she prefers to work less and only do projects that she believes to be good.

  • Wants to work with Paul Thomas Anderson (who suggested Lars Von Trier to cast her in Melancholia) and Jane Campion, but also likes to keep an eye out for upcoming directors.

  • Gena Rowlands and Shirley MacLaine are her favorite actresses.

  • The Mulleavy sisters, directors of Kirsten's next movie Woodshock and founders of Rodarte, share BTS stories and compliment Kirsten a lot for being good in both comedy and drama during her career.
