Celebrities, They're Just Like Us: Jessica Chastain Shocked by Emojis Differing Across Platforms

While praising the film Lady Bird, Jessica Chastain noted that she'd lost her virginity to a Dave Matthew's song and used an emoji that she believed would express shock at the parallels between the film and her life. But then a friend forwarded her what the emoji looked like to them, and she was taken aback that the change in emojis made it look like she was salivating at the coincidence.

She's a bit embarrassed but taking it in stride

Anonymous Oscar Voters Weigh in on Three Billboards Backlash

Three Billboards seems like the frontrunner of this awards season, but there's been some pushback in regards to Sam Rockwell's character and how breezily/sloppily race is handled in the film, equating it to being this year's Crash. One of the most critical RT'd pieces was from the New York Times which prompted a defensive response from Neil Patrick Harris

Director McDonagh has defended his writing decisions regarding that character in an interview with the BBC, “He’s definitely a racist and a bully, but I wouldn’t say he’s treated sympathetically. I was trying to see the hope in all these people, so if you’re saying that’s treating a character sympathetically, to a degree that is. But the point of the film, and the thing I hope people come away with, is the possibility of change in people.”

But what do some random unidentified AMPAS members think?

Rose McGowan’s heckler: “We get murdered because we decided to slay the street in a tight dress”

Andi Dier, the trans woman who heckled Rose McGowan during her book tour, was interviewed following the incident.

She says that trans women face the same sort of violence that cis women face, only “statistically more.”

Andi says that Rose McGowan doesn’t have to worry about getting followed home anymore since she has a security detail and her privilege to protect her.

Andi Dier, who also heckled Bernie Sanders over trans rights back in 2015, says that people are ignoring a “genocide” on their own soil, describing it as the next AIDS crisis.

Brandon Flowers is looking like a casual and tasty snack 🍫, interview with LV ReviewJournal

The Killers performed live for listeners at the alt987 lounge. Photos from that performance were shared online and BFlow is looking like quite the tasty snack.

Flowers on new song "The Calling": “I said something about light, and he [Mark Stoermer] had just been looking at a painting by Caravaggio called ‘The Calling of Saint Matthew,’ ” where Jesus is pointing at Matthew and there’s a light shining on him. We looked at that picture and we wrote that song around it.”

On why BFlow chose Woody Harrelson to open the song: "He just sounds a lot cooler reading these passages out of the New Testament than any of us did,” Flowers notes — where Jesus explains why he’d dine with a tax collector like Matthew and invite him to be a follower."

On being one of the last rock bands still standing today: “It’s a little scary out there,” the 36-year-old Flowers acknowledges. “We’ve definitely got one foot in the fundamental, rock and roll, arena band world, but then I also believe that we have a foot in the future. I think we’re combining these two worlds and people seem to appreciate it. There are tried-and-true things about showmanship and about performance that I’m a student of, and we apply those. And then we’re also aware of what’s going on, and we’re trying to move forward. Having a little dash of Las Vegas on top of that never hurt anybody, either."

tasty bflow.

Pink performs pre-Super Bowl concert despite flu, at least four players may also have it

- Pink, who is supposed to sing the national anthem Sunday, put on a show in Minneapolis after warning the crowd that she had the flu because her kids “cough into my mouth and I can’t stop them ’cause they’re so cute.” She managed her usual stunts and a cover of “What’s Up?”, but had to abandon an attempt at one of her new songs.

- In the past few days, the Eagles’ Mychal Kendricks, Tim Jernigan, and Ronald Darby were also said to be battling the flu, and the Patriots’ Malcolm Butler was hospitalized with flu-like symptoms. The players think they brought the flu from home on the East Coast, where the flu season has yet to peak.

- Flu hospitalization rates are the highest they’ve been this early since the CDC started tracking them in 2005, and historically there’s a post-Super Bowl spike in flu cases in the contending cities. Ahead of Super Bowl parties, health officials are reminding people to cover their mouths, wash their hands, don’t double dip, stay home if sick, and generally do the opposite of what Pink did.

How Alice in Chains turned an unfortunate situation into Jar of Flies; announce European tour dates

In 1993, Alice in Chains was touring, having 5 radio singles, and co-headlining Lollapalooza. But when they got home, they found out they had been evicted, were low on cash, and had no place to stay. They moved into Seattle's London Bridge Studios and ended up making an album.

-Layne Staley said they never planned to make an album from the music they made, but the studio heard it and loved it
-Jerry Cantrell hadn't written any songs and only had one jangly chorus, which turned into No Excuses
-Nutshell turned into the biggest fan fave and it wasn't even released commercially!
-The album title came from an experiment Cantrell did as a kid with 2 jars of flies. He overfed one jar and underfed the other. The underfed flies survived and these findings had a huge impact on Jerry.

In more recent news, the band just announced they will be touring Europe this summer. They are already touring Canada/U.S. this spring.

Placebo's Brian Molko reflects back on the band's career

-Reflects on the band's 23-year history, how they didn't mind scorn from the press, and embraced the rock-n-roll lifestyle as a rite of passage
-The band's motivation was to never get an office job but still make money for food/rent
-Their heroes were Lou Reed, Marc Bolan, and David Bowie for their androgyny and sexuality in the 1970s; the band faced "prudish attitudes of the bourgeois"

“I wanted to challenge the homophobia that I was witnessing in the music scene” says Molko. “I wanted anybody who was slightly homophobic to show up at our gigs and think 'Oh, I really fancy the singer. She's hot!' only to find out later that the singer was called Brian, which would hopefully lead them to go home and ask themselves a few questions."

-Says for their current tour, A Place for Us to Dream – 20 Years of Placebo, there were a lot of songs they wanted to play that meant a lot to them and weren't necessarily the hits, otherwise it's a mechanical act with no emotional connection
-He's currently writing songs for an 8th album and says the current political climate is very inspiring

The Reviews are In: Critics throw Timberlake's "Man of the Woods" into the wood chipper

Randall Timberlake's latest lumberjack attempt of an album, Lost Jar of Mayo in the Woods, is out and the reviews are in and they are scathing. Just hours after the coasters' release and before Timberlake is set to take the stage (and hopefully not fall, fingers crossed), reviewers and online users alike are not holding back about music's biggest misstep so far this year.

Pitchfork gave it a 3.8 out of 10 and says: "It’s remarkable how few ideas are contained within this hour-plus Blue Ridge Mountains mood board of an album. Man of the Woods is a misstep large enough to merit relitigating Justin Timberlake’s status as a pop superstar. How much of his career should we chalk up to fortune, privilege, and an essential malleability? Too much of Man of the Woods is musically and thematically shallow; at 66 minutes, it’s a mile wide and an inch deep. There’s a point midway through the album—right around the threadbare-shirt hymnal “Flannel”—where you realize “modern Americana with 808s” wasn’t just a cute tagline: That’s really the whole idea, and it quickly wears thin."

Esquire: "To say the least—and this is coming from a Justin Timberlake fan, mind you—Man of the Woods is a mess. It’s disappointing. It’s kind of embarrassing. I want to say it’s well-intentioned, but it comes across like Timberlake just didn’t read the room on this one. Specifically, “Flannel” is so poorly-timed that you can’t help but think it was intentional pandering to red states or worse. But isn’t that the most perfectly 2018 thing to happen to Justin Timberlake? Maybe we can give him the benefit of the doubt and bury this album somewhere in the woods, along with this uncomfortable diversion in his career."

The Los Angeles Times: "As clever as the production can be, "Man of the Woods" contains Timberlake's least convincing singing; in song after song, there's a glazed-over quality to his vocals that defeats the idea that he's drawing from some raw-water reservoir of cherished down-home memories. And his lyrics are even worse, with flimsy clichés about country life — "Breeze Off the Pond" rhymes that phrase with "trees on the lawn" — and no shortage of condescension to those well-meaning simpletons struggling out in the heartland."

"In defense of Woody Allen" - an opinion piece by Hadley Freeman

- summary: "he was never convicted! this is too complex and not for the public to decide!! his fascination with young women does not equal pedophilia!!!"
- says moderation isn't cool nowadays, both political (lmao, i guess she must be a friend of JK "terrorists on the right & left" Rowling) and moral
- mentions the "shape-shifting quality of the Woody Allen saga", says it's bizarre that Colin Firth had a change of heart now bc he was 32 in 1992 and able to read newspapers, but "understandable" in Chalamet's case bc he was only born in 95 (i feel like there's a condescending 'young & impressionable' subtext here, but maybe that's me)
- selectively "re-establishes some truths about the original case"; again, it's all very complex!!!
- says Manhattan is eyeroll-worthy but come on you guys, that's hardly pedophilia!!!
- makes the disingenous, emotionally manipulative argument that #MeToo emerged bc women had lost faith in the justice system & too many victims had been silenced, and then implying that we're not exactly being just now either since "condemnation needs to have real value"
- "Justice is not 'Believe all women', as I’ve seen many people claim; it is 'Listen to all women'"


Justin Timberlake album is NOT selling like a Justin Timberlake album!

After moving 968,000 copies in a week of his last album, many were wondering if Justin Timberlake could hit a million with his much hyped new record, "Man Of The Woods!" NOT happening ... Not even close.

Despite huge Super Bowl buzz, Timberlake's poorly reviewed return to music is on track for sales between 300,000 and 350,000, according to early sales reads from Hits Daily Double.

Karni Sena, the militant Rajput group which rioted to prevent Padmavat release, now praise the movie

ONTD members who frequent the Bollywood tag will be aware of the months-long drama unfolding in India over the movie, Padmavat/i directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, which has resulted in arson, large-scale rioting, destruction of public and private property, terrorizing and attacking school children, petrol bombing theatres, and basically bringing life to a stand-still in many Northern Indian states, some of which have banned the movie. Karni Sena, the militant Rajput organization which had been spearheading the protests because of the supposed defamation of Rani Padmini (who is an imaginary character), has now retracted their stand, praising the movie for showcasing Rajput valour. From the movie it is clear that its politics of representation is an extremely regressive one- Rajputs, an extremely oppressive dominant caste which is a mainstay in right-wing Hindu politics, are glorified in every second dialogue, while Khilji is portrayed through an Islamophobic and biphobic/homophobic perspective. Under the current right-wing Hindu regime, the artistic choice to engage in both of these things (valorizing Rajputs and demonizing Muslims) cannot be seen as an innocent one. Moreover some feminists (including actress Swara Bhasker) have argued that the ending glorifies Jauhar, a practice in which Rajput women voluntarily or more often unvoluntarily commit suicide by self-immolation when their husbands were defeated in battle. The climatic scene of the movie shows a pregnant woman and a child among those who commit jauhar (For more details about what is wrong with the movie, see this excellent post by setara_nosheen). Clearly all of this has satisfied the organization which has promised that it will help release the movie in the states in which it has been banned. It wants all Rajputs to see their glory represented on screen.

Earlier in January 2016, activists from this organization assaulted the director and vandalized the sets of the movie. The organization had also issued death threats to Deepika Padukone and Bhansali recently.

Source for the news. Text by OP.

Nothing in India is as it appears. Karni Sena used the protests to raise their profile and Bhansali has a hit in his hands. Only the public lost out thanks to the violence and destruction. Shame on Bhansali for making a terrible movie glorifying one of the most violent and regressive communities in India, while demonizing Muslims! At least Ranveer and Jim Sarbh are hot? Wish the movie was about their relationship tbh!

Pete Doherty and The Libertines want you to help fund their incomplete hotel

Back in 2006-2007, ONTD had several Pete Doherty posts. I was thinking about old school ONTD recently and decided to see what he was up to. It turns out his band, The Libertines, have bought a hotel!

-The band bought a Margate hotel last year for £450,000 and are now calling it The Albion Rooms - a creative residential hub for music, poetry and art
-The band has started a crowdfunding campaign to finish paying off what they call a "beautifully shabby" hotel
-They want it to be a place for fans, friends, family
-Hotel will include a studio that young bands can use for free
-They are offering merch for those funding the hotel - check it out here

Taraji P. Henson's manager Vincent Cirrincione accused of sexual misconduct by 9 women

Hollywood manager Vincent Cirrincione has been accused of sexual harassment by nine women.
Eight African American women and one Asian American woman allege Cirrincione made unwanted sexual advances toward them over a two-decade period.
Tamika Lamison, Peppur Chambers and Letha Remington, went on the record with their claims against the manager, while six other women withheld their names for fear of reprisal.
A majority of the women say Cirrincione would only represent them if they were willing to have sex with him whenever he wanted. 
The manager formerly represented Halle Berry for 20 years and currently manages Taraji P. Henson. 

He used his reputation “as an important gatekeeper for black actresses” to “prey upon young women of color seeking an entry into Hollywood.”

Harvey Weinstein considering legal action against Uma Thurman

Uma has claimed in an article this morning that Harvey Weinstein tried to attack her in a London hotel room, among other incidents of sexual misconduct. He allegedly also threatened to ruin her career. She also claimed Quentin Tarantino nearly killed her and left her body permanently damaged during a stunt gone wrong for Kill Bill.

A statement from the shithead's attorney reads in part: "Harvey is stunned and saddened by what he claims to be false accusations by Uma Thurman, someone he has worked closely with for more than two decades...Ms. Thurman’s statements to The Times are being carefully examined and investigated before deciding whether any legal action against her would be appropriate."

Neither Thurman or Tarantino have responded to requests for comment.

Students dance with joy upon being gifted with Black Panther tickets

Middle class students from the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta erupted into a joyous song and dance routine upon finding out that they had all got tickets for and were going to see Black Panther.

The school's director of curriculum and instruction, Wade King, came up with the idea of incorporating the upcoming Marvel blockbuster with the school curriculum. This will include the students using the BP comic books to learn about imperial history and African art, along with using the content during maths, science and gym lessons (Wakanda is a highly advanced country with genius scientists as well as superheroes who can fight).

Before finding out about their surprise outing, the students opened the meeting with an African-inspired spoken word performance.

American Gods has a new showrunner!

  • American Gods has found a new showrunner after a turbulent period. Bryan Fuller and Gillian Anderson have both exited the show (or has she?), which also means Gillian won't be getting her justly deserved Golden Globe and Emmy wins for playing Media.

  • Jesse Alexander, who previously worked on Hannibal, Lost, Star Trek: Discovery, Heroes, and Alias, among others, is now leading the charge for the second season.

  • The series was renewed by Starz in May 2017, and was also snubbed at every award show, a curse of being a Fuller program.
