Sam admitted to flying to Hawaii where she was living and working at least 7 times to convince her to come back to him, and the 7th time it worked.

Sam not taking no for an answer~ (not my words),  is how to couple got back together and married a few months later. Then he released that weird "Drinkin Too Much" song about her.

In a redeeming part of the interview though, he talks about her generosity and charity work, and wanting to support her in that cause she supported his career.

'You're The Worst's Aya Cash Talks #MeToo at the Vail Film Festival

ayaheader.jpg

Aya attended the 15th annual Vail Film Festival earlier this month. The festival focused on women in film for the second year in a row, a decision motivated by #MeToo and #TimesUp. Between her moments on stage and later interviews, Aya had the following (and more) to say:

  • Always felt uncomfortable with Hollywood's use of women as accessories, but has participated in objectifying herself for the sake of her career: "There's been times where I've bought into that demand of needing to be a certain thing or look a certain way or feel like I have to participate in order to get what I want, which is work. I've disappointed myself in those moments but I was kind of, like, well that's what I have to do right, right? And now I don't know if that's true."

  • With #MeToo, "a lot of people have had to start looking at everything differently. So while three years ago I might've been like, 'it's fine,' I have to look back and go, 'is it fine?'"

  • Last year she did a lot of movies by first-time filmmakers last, "almost all of which were women, which is such a good sign for our industry."

  • Acknowledges that things change for white women first: "That's also not universal. Obviously, I [am a] white woman who comes from a place of privilege... So I don't want to sort of speak as if [to say], 'we're all good.'"

The celluloid ceiling in numbers
Of the 100 highest-grossing films of 2017, only 24% were led by women; independent films account for 65% of these (x). Women made up only 18% of the behind-the-scenes roles (directors, producers, crew) for the 250 highest-grossing films of 2017 (x).

Taylor Swift is eliminating ticket fees in a desperate bid to boost sales


Taylor Swift's Reputation tour begins in three weeks and no shows have sold out yet as a result of her new ticketing model designed to combat "rock and roll socialist pricing" in the music industry.

To help boost sluggish sales, she and Ticketmaster are offering her fans a Tax Day break on ticket service fees.
Some Swifties who purchased tickets early aren't happy about paid fees on tickets that were much already more expensive than the tickets being sold now.

If you're thinking about buying tickets, you might want to hold off even longer because industry analysts predict they will drop even lower as so many tickets are still available.

Her tour may not be selling out, but it's still likely to be the most profitable female tour of all time due to the gouging of her huge fanbase.

The Last of the Queen’s Corgi Dynasty Has Died

corgi-641723.jpg

Marking the end of an era, Queen Elizabeth's last corgi Willow has died.

The Queen has loved corgis all her life, having owned over 30 during her reign, and she bred her own until 2015 when she halted the practice because she "didn't want to leave any young dog behind."

Willow was a 14th generation descendant of the Queen’s first dog Susan, who came to her as an 18th birthday present from her parents in 1944. Susan was so beloved that she accompanied Elizabeth on her honeymoon. The royal corgi matriarch is buried in the Sandringham grounds alongside some of her offspring.

In 2012, Willow appeared in a James Bond-themed sketch for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Prince Harry has remarked that he "spent 33 years getting barked at" while "the corgis took to [fiancée Meghan Markle] straightaway." (Meghan adds: "Just laying on my feet during tea, it was very sweet.")

"An insider @ Buckingham Palace" says of Elizabeth, "She has mourned every one of her corgis over the years, but she has been more upset about Willow’s death than any of them… It is probably because Willow was the last link to her parents and a pastime that goes back to her own childhood. It really does feel like the end of an era."

Three dogs still remain as companions of the Queen, though they are not from the same gene pool as Willow. Surviving their "sister" are Whisper, a corgi Elizabeth adopted following the death of its owner (a gatekeeper at her private estate), and two "dorgis"—a cross-breed that was introduced to the royal household after one of Elizabeth’s corgis mated with a dachshund belonging to her sister, Princess Margaret.

She said she's leaving it up to Offset to reveal the "tricky" baby name, however, the passive aggressive talk show host offered to pay the rapper $20,000 to name the baby "Ellen," to which Cardi hilariously replied, "Can I put it as the middle name?"

PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED Prince's original recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U"

For those who don't know the story, Prince wrote the song "Nothing Compares 2 U" and gave the song to a band he had assembled called The Family. The song was not released as a single by them, so the song was barely heard of by the general public. It wasn't until 1990, when Sinead O'Connor released a cover, that the song became huge. Until today, the public has not heard Prince's original recording.

SVU Promo for 19x20: The Rollins Episode No One Asked For



In the next SVU episode, airing in 2 weeks, Rollins takes the spotlight, so we can all skip it and just come to the ONTD post to talk shit even though we didn't watch it. Which is what most of you are doing anyway. Seriously though, Rollins ~races against time~ to rescue a girl who is being held against her will by her father. Guest starring as the creepy father is the amazing Ray McKinnon of Deadwood and Rectify fame, so maybe the episode will be worth watching after all.

Tyler Posey talks about how he got through the choking sex scene in Truth or Dare

truthordare.jpg

Scott and Aria Tyler Posey and Lucy Hale came together for horror flick, Truth or Dare, that predictably flopped with critics over the weekend. It stars a group of friends that have to play a game of truth or dare - guided by some kind of evil entity that also possesses them - or you die. In one scene, Lucy's character pulls a Regan and starts choking Posey when she's riding him.

"The face is awkward when you're actually doing it because you don't know how it's going to look in the final version of the film," Tyler told Seventeen.com. "That scene specifically where Lucy and I are having a sex scene and she's supposed to have that face and choke me — it's hard to not break and start laughing because doing this," he adds, making the smiley face. "It was odd."

Posey likes Lucy and was glad he finally got to work with her and says that since they both worked on long-running shows, she was not jaded at all. After each take, they'd laugh with each other. No word on if they are being kinky together after the movie wrapped.

77th Annual Peabody Awards Announce Entertainment, Documentary Winners



The Peabody Awards recognize impactful storytelling in electronic media. Given by the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia, these awards spotlight stories that engage audiences as global citizens, expanding horizons, defending the public interest, or encouraging empathy.

Only 30 winners are selected from the 1200 annual submissions, and each winner had unanimous support from the Peabody Board of Jurors.

This year, 9 of the 30 winners are in the Entertainment category.



Hasan Minhaj delivers much more than a hilarious stand-up comedy special. “Homecoming King” is a deeply personal memoir—part Richard Pryor, part Spaulding Gray—that covers the struggles of the immigrant experience, encounters with stereotypes and raced expectations, and intergenerational acceptance while using comedy to invite empathy, caring, and understanding.

Saoirse Ronan: ‘It means a lot to see realistic sex in films’



Saoirse Ronan plays Florence in the upcoming On Chesil Beach, the newest film adaptation of an Ian McEwan novel. She previously earned three Oscar noms for her work in another McEwan adaption, Atonement

She says this new movie, which follows a young couple's self-destruction due to fear of intimacy, offers a realistic depiction of sex and marriage instead of the usual fairytale:

"There are some harsh truths that people want to escape from when they go to see a film, but at the same time, I know as a girl growing up in this day and age what it means to watch something like Lena Dunham’s Girls and to see real sex and how messy it is. I think boys and girls feel a lot of pressure to perform in a particular way," she says.

“I am very shocked by this sudden treatment. Judgments in the states of New York and Connecticut found him innocent. The legal situation today is the same as in 2007.”

German Echo Awards Criticized after Duo with Anti-Semitic Lyrics Win Best Rap Album




The Echo Awards, Germany's highest music awards, gave Kollegah and Farid Bang the award for Best Rap Album. The rappers have anti-Semitic lyrics, including that their muscles are "more defined than Auschwitz prisoners" and "I'm doing another Holocaust, coming with a Molotov". The award was granted on Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 12. They have denied that they are anti-Semitic, saying their lyrics were misinterpreted.

Lead singer of Die Toten Hosen, Campino, criticized the decision that night: "for me personally, misogynistic, homophobic, right-wing extremist and anti-Semitic insults cross the line", for which he gained a standing ovation. The decision has been further condemned by the German foreign minister and the former CEO of Airbus. Two-time Grammy winner Klaus Voormann returned his Lifetime Achievement Echo, as did this year's Echo winner for Best Classical Music Album, Notos Quartett.

Some argue the nomination process is flawed, as it is based on commercial success, although a jury then selects from the nominees. The BMVI Music Group who administers the awards at first defended it, but after the controversy the CEO has backtracked and said they will reconsider the nomination process.
