Lena Dunham gets a hysterectomy

Lena Dunham shared her decision to get a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) after battling endometriosis for a decade, and this was her ninth surgical operation.

She says she has always wanted to have kids, but also felt that the uterus she's been given is defective. She's been delirious with pain in back in August, and her family was worried for her.

She also wrote a very personal essay explaining her journey, explaining that it's not a right choice for everyone, and doctors are very reluctant to perform the procedure on women aged 18-35, however in her situation she believes it was the right one.

Also mentions that her doctors did not remove her ovaries, which means she may not be infertile. She says she will pursue adoption, but really wanted to get pregnant as well.

McDonalds is cutting cheeseburgers and chocolate milk from its Happy Meals

McDonald's is removing cheeseburgers and chocolate milk from its Happy Meal menu in an effort to cut down on the calories, sodium, saturated fat and sugar that kids consume at its restaurants.

• You can still order cheeseburgers or chocolate milk with your Happy Meals by simply asking. The fast-food company said that not listing them will reduce how often they're ordered.

• The company says by the end of 2022, at least 50 percent or more of the Happy Meal options listed on menus will meet new global Happy Meal nutrition criteria: Meals will have 600 calories or less; no more than 10 percent of calories from saturated fat; no more than 650 mg sodium; and no more than 10 percent of calories from added sugar.

• The changes go into effect this June.

• The company also commits to "help serve more fruit, vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains, lean protein and water in Happy Meals," according to the company release.

Pop Music Potential Emergency: Spice Girls WILL Tour?

- A 'source' stated Mel B signed a contract to tour, as well as the rest of the girls
- Rumors are the tour will be limited and in two countries (ugh)
- TMZ reported that they would tour, but without any official scoop
- Victoria has downright denied a Spice Girls tour during fashion week. However she has also stated there would not be any sort of reunion with the girls last year (maybe before she knew ha business was crunchinT)
- This would not be their first 'worst kept secret' where they denied certain plans (re: Olympics 2012 performance)

My takeaway: they are planning something, and these back and forth rumors of the tour is a way to build hype and making time to actually plan it. Following the tour will be the new show, which the tour will act as a promotional thing. Then they'll get to sell merch inbetween

Who will be the next mega producer to move to Netflix?

*Several of Hollywood's TV producers with mega-deals are coming up for renewal in the next year or two, and Netflix is apparently changing the game with all the money throwing.

*Greg Berlanti: The most prolific producer on TV with 11 shows in production. Locked into a deal with Warner Brothers until 2020, but Netflix could put him high on their potential list because he's so young and could help Netflix develop emerging writers due to his past experience as an executive producer.

*Chuck Lorre: His contract with Warner Brothers expires in June 2020, but given his long term relationship with Warner Brothers (20 years) and that he's not hurting for money or creative control, luring him away seems unlikely, especially since Netflix just canned two of his Netflix originals.

Bill Murray Says the GOP Tax Reform Bill Is Great, Thinks Comedy Is Getting "Harder and Harder"

– In an interview on CNBC, Bill Murray had stuff to say about how the tax reform bill is good, thinks Democrats need to find the "common" factors that unite all people instead of trying to "pick out" support from marginalized groups, and talks about how people still like Groundhog Day.
– Conservatives were happy and waved his support around like a musty flag bc most celebrities in liberal Hollywood won't bat for them which makes their harmful views outsider opinions or something even though an orange terd is sitting in the oval office sending his thoughts and prayers to Florida.
– Murray also said being a comedian is "harder and harder", citing people accusing Jim Downey, long-time writer for SNL (like decades) who's involved in a lot of the political sketches, of being a right-wing comedic writer.
– Murray also appeared on SNL in January for a Morning Joe sketch and played Steve Bannon, where his character said Jared Fogle from Subway and Logan Paul would make great 2020 candidates. He also appeared in a 2016 White House video promoting the ACA.

– On #MeToo: "If people are monstrous, it eventually comes back." [...] "We get justice, but we don't get it when we want it. ...This is unusual. People are getting their justice rather quickly."  🚮

– On comedy being hard: “How can Kristen Wiig make everyone laugh? She’s not thinking about being political. She’s thinking about what resonates and what’s common to all of us…My friend who’s a great comedy writer, Jim Downey, he’s accused of being a right-wing comedy writer, if there is such a thing.”

“He says, no no, I just think the way the Democrats handle things is poor, the way they try to pick out little pieces…where [they say] ‘we represent the Hispanics, we represent LGBTQ’ or something. And they’re not speaking to everyone at once. It’s almost demeaning to say ‘I’m choosing you because you’re a splinter group or you’re a certain minority group.'”

“There’s almost a resentment…you’re separated again by a politician. You’re my people, I’m in control of you, and I represent you. Instead of thinking each citizen has the right to be respected as a citizen first under the laws of the country.”

– On tax reform: “The change in the tax law is a great thing for corporations, it’s a fantastic thing. I don’t pretend to understand what that will mean to the future in terms of the economy or what the budget will have to do with what people call entitlements.”

“In the first step, it’s made things easier. I think people feel like there was too much regulation, and yet I hope they don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater when breaking down regulations.”

New Trailer for 'Where Is Kyra?' Starring Michelle Pfeiffer

"In Brooklyn, New York, Kyra (Pfeiffer) loses her job and struggles to survive on her ailing mother's income. As the weeks and months go on, her problems worsen. This leads her on a risky and enigmatic path that threatens her life."

– Nigerian-born director Andrew Dosunmu's Where Is Kyra? has finally found a distributor after screening at the Sundance Film Festival this January, via Great Point Media after, ironically, a year of searching, currently looking at releases.
– His past films include Mother of George (2013) and Restless City (2011), also hard-hitting dramas focused on people in New York City living under difficult circumstances. He's also directed music videos for Tracy Chapman, Isaac Hayes, and other artists.
– Michelle Pfeiifer has been receiving outstanding reviews as the title character, some calling it her best performance in years. "A soul-searching Michelle Pfeiffer makes a welcome return," says Variety's review.
– Dosunmu said on the inspiration for the film, “I wanted to tell a story about these people that are disenfranchised that we see every day. We don’t ask ourselves the question, ‘Why are they here?'”. The film is about what it's like to grow old in a society that doesn't honor its elders and having to live in a city with non-stop motion.
– Pfeiffer also starred in The Wizard of Lies (which got her a GG and Emmy nomination), Murder On the Orient Express and mother! in 2017, and will appear in Marvel's Ant Man and the Wasp as Janet van Dyne later this year.

Transgender pop star Kim Petras defends working with Dr. Luke, says "he's a great guy"

In a new story for Interview Magazine, German transgender pop star Kim Petras defended her decision to work with Dr. Luke (whom Kesha has accused of drugging and raping her). "As I know him, he’s been really great and supportive to me and I’ve been learning a lot from him," Petras said. "He’s been a really nice person and I wasn’t there when that whole thing [with Kesha] went down, but from my experience he’s a great guy and I’ve been having a good time working with him."

When asked if she'll continue to work with Luke, Petras doubles down. "I’m always working with other collaborators," she says. "I’m always working with whomever the hell I want to work with. But it’s been really great working with him and I’ve been really happy with how it all came out."

“I have a career that’s probably comparable to Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Sigourney Weaver. They all came out of Yale. They came out of Julliard, They came out of NYU. They had the same path as me, and yet, I am nowhere near them, not as far as money, not as far as job opportunities, no where close to it. I have to constantly get on that phone and hustle for my worth. People say, ‘You’re a black Meryl Streep. You are and we love you’…Well, then if there’s no one like me. You pay me what I’m worth…I’m not hustling for my worth. I’m worthy.”

How figure skaters choose their music, explained with Adam Rippon

2018 Olympic medalist Adam Rippon, and music designer Hugo Chouinard helps explain how figure skaters pick their music.

The 1932 Winter Olympics was the first time figure skating was performed to music. Today, music is an essential part of the sport and there’s a hidden strategy behind how they pick their songs. For a long time, figure skaters skated to classics like Carmen, Swan Lake, and Don Quixote. Not only because it’s great music but because of the clear story line and the dynamic characters in them. But this is all changing. In 2014, the ISU changed the music rules to allow skaters to skate to music with lyrics.
