High school show 'Riverdale' accused of sexualizing teens girls for pole dance scene



source 2

- In the last ep of this trainwreck show 16 (or 15? the show never made this clear) year old Betty Cooper danced on a pole in a bar. In front of her boyfriend, his father, her own mother, and a whole room full of adults.

- "parenting expert" Sharon Silver: “No matter the context, a scene involving an underage girl sexualized on a stage does nothing to further the cultural conversation about consent”

- Showrunner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa has yet to adress the scene, even after a immense social media backlash

30 year old Zac Efron says 20 year old Zendaya is his favorite onscreen kiss




While promoting their new film The Greatest Showman, Zac Efron was asked by a Norwegian TV interviewer who his favorite film kiss was.

"This might be my favorite kiss, I think ever," the actor said while Zendaya smirked.

He has previously starred in films and shared kisses with Taylor Schilling, Anna Kendrick, Zoey Deutch and his girlfriend of five years, Vanessa Hudgens.

Zendaya said of the kiss: "You're in the moment! When you're into a character, the whole time they're not allowed to as much as touch, talk, speak, have a moment between each other so every moment, even if they're just touching is incredibly special. It's not just another kiss. It's different. We try to take ourselves out of it and become these two characters and that's their moment."

I did not realize Zac Efron had gotten so old.

Meghan Trainor talks fitness: My BF was like "You want to workout?" and I was like "No, but OK."



While promoting her new music competition series, 'The Four: Battle for Stardom,' which premieres Jan. 4 on Fox, Meghan Trainor revealed that her boyfriend, 'Spy Kids' actor Daryl Sabara, has changed her outlook on health and wellness. "He's changed my entire life. He cooks for me and taught me how to cook," Meghan said. "He taught me how you can feel better if you eat healthier and exercise, even mentally. After my second surgery, I went into this dark place and he was like, 'You want to workout?' and I was like, 'No, but OK.' But now I love it. I'm obsessed with it, and I've never felt better." Meghan, who is currently working on her third studio album, also says that Jennifer Lopez was super nice to her and told her to get on Pinterest.

Backlash against Saoirse Ronan over SNL Aer Lingus sketch

So when Saoirse Ronan recently hosted SNL, she participated in this sketch that makes fun of Aer Lingus (a real Irish airline) and Irish people (if you're region blocked try this link instead):



A lot of people in Ireland were not amused! Staring with Aer Lingus themselves, who went full Trump on Ronan (it's a parody of this Trump tweet):

But they weren't done:

As you can see, people are mad! Not just people, but actual celebrities! Like Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow (his music is great):

Irish film critic Donald Clarke:


Saoirse Ronan is now going on a talk show in Ireland to defend herself:

Did anyone else know Feldman was producing? They definitely got Haim's likeness down, the last shots of him are spine-chillingly close to 80's Corey.

Charlie Sheen Sues National Enquirer for Defamation Over Corey Haim Allegation




Charlie Sheen filed a lawsuit against the tabloid, its editor-in-chief Dylan Howard and "Breaking the Cycle" actor Dominik Brascia for alleging that he raped Corey Haim

Sheen's lawyer claimed that Howard wrote the story as a revenge because he was not the first one to break the story that the "Lucas" star is HIV positive

"The statements are categorically false and in the article, Defendant NEI outright states that the individual who claimed that the abuse occurred, Defendant Dominick Brascia, is himself accused of having molested Corey Haim." "Thus, Defendant Howard and Defendants NEI and AMI entertained serious doubt as to the truth of the publication and/or acted with a high degree of awareness of probably falsity."

Corey's mom, Judy Haim, denied the rape allegations involving her son and Charlie Sheen

National Enquirer editor-in-chief Dylan Howard has been accused by numerous former American Media employees of sexual harassment

Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney on "Actors on Actors"



The actors discuss Rockwell's recent role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Janney's recent role in I, Tonya.
They chat about:

  • How great they both are,

  • Janney's role as LaVona, Tonya Harding's mom, was written for her,

  • Rockwell developed a paunch (and wore padded pants) in Three Billboards,

  • Francis McDormand's decided her character in Three Billboards should walk like John Wayne,

  • Both Rockwell and Janney's characters are mean-but-funny,

Janney looks ethereal as always, Rockwell gets quasi-obnoxious by name-dropping "the great Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight".

However, The Sun posted a tasteless tweet (below) and since The Sun is known to be Syco's (1D's old and Louis's current MGMT !!!!!) mouthpiece, Larries were assured once more that Louis's own management is trying to bring him down.
