Freeman and Hines were not related by blood, but Freeman has known Hines since she was a small child and has been a part of her life for years.

Morgan Freeman and Hines denied the affair took place

It's finally happening!!! I don’t live in the US so there’s no chance for me to check out the pop-up thing. I’d love to get my hands on some merch but let’s be real, it’s gonna cost a bomb for sure 😩 Still, I’m hoping the stuff looks nice and the organisers are prepared to be overrun by the MASSIVE crowds lol. I wonder if the guys are gonna be there??

And of course Justin hasn't made a peep about any of this...

ETA: Lance will be there, apparently! "And yes I’ll be there. But when?? More details coming soon."

ETA 2: A preview of some of their merch... let’s hope they’ve got other designs too 👀

Grey's Anatomy renewed for 15th season

ABC has officially renewed GA for a 15th season. The news was announced at the wrap party tonight. It is now officially ABC's longest running show, bypassing The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.


Guy had a shower and a nap in Taylor Swift's townhouse.

On Friday 20th April a man by the name of Roger Alvarado, 22, climbed up the fire escape of Taylor Swift's SoHo townhouse and broke in through one of her windows. He took a shower and had a nap in her bed before being woken up by police. He had previously tried to break into the townhouse with a shovel on February 13th.

Taylor's had quite a few known run-ins with stalkers in the past month but luckily hasn't been home during any of the incidents:

  1. 8th April - a man tried to climb the walls of her Beverley Hills mansion and her security had to call the cops when he refused to leave.

  2. 13th April - a man stole $1,600 from a bank in Ansonia, drove from Connecticut to her house in Rhode Island and threw the money over her wall in an attempt to impress her (bc she obviously needs money).

  3. 14th April - a man tried breaking into her Los Angeles home with a knife and some rope whilst wearing a mask and gloves. He was also said to own guns.

And this is why I could never be famous. ONTD, do you have any eperiences of home invasion?


Sales figures are in for Tinashe's "Joyride"

Sales figures are in for the first week of Tinashe's highly anticipated album "Joyride".

[are you ready for it??]The album sold a whopping 4,710 copies in the US, coming in at #24 on HitsDailyDouble's sales chart. The album was no where to be seen on their SPS chart meaning it posted a figure of less than 10k and probably won't even debut in the top 50 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

In comparison, Flopnashe's previous album "Aquarius" 18k copies first week in 2014.

Prince abused numerous women while on drugs in released police interviews


About two weeks after Prince's death, Sinead O'Connor was interviewed among others in an investigation pertaining to his death. In the files released by police, Sinead tells of instances where Prince would be violent with women he knew, had "visions" from god that an album was evil, so he wouldn't release it.

“In the case of Prince, everyone is mistaken who believes he did not have a drug habit the entirety of his life. He used hard drugs commonly,” she told police in a May 2, 2016 interview, as noted by The Blast. “I know this because I spent time with the man.”

O'Connor divulged that he would go to another room - presumably to do the drugs- and come back violent. "He had two women in the band, Wendy and Lisa,” she said. “Wendy was in the hospital for six weeks after he beat the shit out of her.”

Sinead tells that more women will be coming forward in time.

Kodak Black could be out of jail by October

Kodak Black was arrested in January after an Instagram live broadcast showed his young son in his home near a gun and marijuana.

He was facing several felony charges including child neglect.

His lawyers argued that the court had no way of knowing the drugs and guns in the video were real.

The felony charges were dropped and he agreed to plead guilty to the probation violation of driving with a suspended license and associating with people engaged in criminal activity. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail and with time served, he'll be out in September. After he's released, he'll be off probation.

He still awaits trial in a separate case for allegedly raping a teenage girl in South Carolina. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.

(ONTD Original) Dancing On My Own: 12 Emotional Songs to Cry and Dance

The ICONIC Robyn song "Dancing On My Own" was a hit in 2010 and is renowned as one of pop's finest moments. Rich in melody, rich in emotion... it's that song that picks you up after a good cry and keeps you moving while your tears ain't even dried up yet.
#Crying #in #the #club, if you will.


Most of the following 2010's songs have those synths (I don't know how to describe it, very 80's maybe), and are about break-ups, being left out, or just being vulnerable. They will range from uptempo, midtempo, and on the ballad side (I really wanted to avoid ballads to make the post danceable but I guess you might consider some of these to be), but you can still find a way to groove along to like with DOMO.


OP's note: Yes I know I could add a million Drake songs. This list is not in any particular rank, just numbered, and is not an end all be all list because we like to #KeepTheConversationGoing and I cannot feel #CasualAboutCasualties that is the offense ya'll take on these lists)


So cozy on up, and click play: now!

▷ 12. Body Talk by Foxes (2015)
Notes: If we had to choose a successor to DOMO this'd be it. I mean "Body Talk" v Body Talk the album... shamltzy 'in my feelings' choreo... Epitome of what this list is about.

Days like these
I don't want you back
Now I feel free
Gonna to keep it that like that yeah

The 25 (5) most re-watchable movies on Netflix

23. Inglorious Basterds
Almost every scene is a standout, such as the suspenseful opening sequence and the underground bar. Each is carefully constructed to build to its climax, and the movie as a whole makes a similar journey. Though long, the movie holds your attention and makes you want to see it through.

18. The Truman Show
Released in 1998, this film was ahead of its time in examining how reality TV (and later social media and internet surveillance) could invade an average person's life. For example, it touches on how the "showrunner" attempts to control Truman by creating situations that he knows--based on data and analytics--will effectively manipulate his emotions.

12. The Prestige
Narrative ambiguity that leaves things (timeline, character motives, and even final outcomes) open to interpretation makes this movie a fun one to see for a second or third time.

4. Mulan
Another 1998 classic, Mulan is one of the last traditionally animated feature films from Disney. It tells a fresh story with themes that were uncommon in children's entertainment, such as war, duty, and honor. It's also different from other Disney films of its era in that the main characters are less talkative than other heroes.

2. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Though it's part of a larger epic, the film tells a complete story on its own. It's well paced, develops its cast of compelling characters and sees them grow as people, features intense action sequences and battle scenes, and ends with dual sadness and hope.

The rest of the list + rationale is at the source.

Natalie Portman Breaks Silence on Refusing Israel Trip: "I Am Not Part of the BDS Movement"

Natalie Portman has released a statement on her decision to not attend the Genesis Prize ceremony.

My decision not to attend the Genesis Prize ceremony has been mischaracterized by others. Let me speak for myself. I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation. I treasure my Israeli friends and family, Israeli food, books, art, cinema, and dance. Israel was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from today’s atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power.

Please do not take any words that do not come directly from me as my own.

This experience has inspired me to support a number of charities in Israel. I will be announcing them soon, and I hope others will join me in supporting the great work they are doing.

If you call Gad Elmaleh a racist you just didn't understand the joke

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In 2016 French "comedians" Gad Elmaleh and Kev Adams did a live show in Paris that included a sketch called "Les Chinois (The Chinese)". The live show was recorded and diffused on French TV, and the sketch, that was jam packed with clichès such as bad accents, eye squinting and ACTUAL YELLOW LIGHTING on their faces, caused immediate reactions from Asian communities and the press

TWO YEARS LATER, Gad keeps on rolling like nothing happened, translating Seinfeld jokes, making up some "jokes" about him being a French/Maroccan cliché and trying to seduce the American public, he has signed millionaire contracts with Netflix and has been unfazed by the 2016 drama.

Matt LeBlanc Accidentally Ate Rachel's Meat Trifle on Friends After David Had Spit It Out

David was supposed to eat a bit of that awful trifle while filming but he spat it out, and Matt wasn't looking at that moment, so he took David's part of the trifle and put it on his plate and started eating it all, and then at the end of the season, they were all watching the blooper reel and Matt saw for the first time that he ate something David previously had in his mouth and was taken aback.

-Matt also talks about how he took his daughter to see Taylor Swift but Chris Rock was doing the same thing, and they both felt like the best fathers in the world, but then Taylor asked them to come on stage with her and they kinda didn't want to do it so they wouldn't embarrass themselves, but their daughters made them so they just kind of awkwardly walked down the runway that Taylor had trying to dance a bit.

Throughout this ordeal, "he was baptized while surrounded by his family."

He had struggled with alcoholism for years and had been to rehab many times.

He was born with a genetic disorder known as achondroplasia dwarfism, but growing up on a farm in Michigan, he said his parents never treated him differently than his siblings, who were average-sized.

She doesn’t plan on being involved with projects that don’t follow suit in the future.
“I wouldn’t do anything if it didn’t. Definitely not. Fuck that. It literally sets a precedent, and [HBO is] leading the way, which is amazing.”

Riverdale Roundup: Ashleigh in Elle, Camila in People, KJ Performs at Coachella and More

Ashleigh Murray, who deserves better, did an interview with Elle and answered some absurd fan theories (ignore the tweet byline. she doesn't know who the BH is and just says it's not her)

-People @ her when expressing hate for her character: "A lot of fans were immediately very vicious toward me and Shannon, but especially toward me. You know, a lot of our young audience, they see these things happen and they immediately react. And the line was crossed right away, with people calling me a bitch and telling me to die [...] I think the fact that we live tweet and we engage with our audiences gives them this idea that they have the freedom and the power to do and say whatever they please. You know? And that their word is somehow stronger than ours, and their feelings are stronger than ours—and that's not the case. The reality is, it's a TV show. I don't write it. I just say the words that I'm given. [...] But I'm not the one to stand for anybody to call me out of my name for any reason.

Because, our viewership is so important, sometimes people can be wary of standing up [...] But I don't have a problem doing that. [...] I've had some people in the cast tell me that they appreciate when I stand up and say something, because they're afraid to. And you can't be. I'm happy to be on the show. I'm happy to support the show, but it's important that the same respect that we have for our fans, they should have the same for us.

-On how she learned to stand up for herself: "Honestly, I learned it from my aunt. You know, I was raised by women my entire life. My mother is gay. She was married to my dad up until I was 9. She was just like, "I'm tired of this, I'm just going to be with who I want to be with." So I've been raised by women, through my mom and also my aunt. My aunt is bi, and most of her partners have been women. I was always surrounded by a very strong tribe of people. My aunt taught me the words "misogynistic" and "misogyny," and what feminism meant when I was 11 years old. She really instilled in me that I'm going to come up against a lot of things that other women are not going to come up against—being a minority and being a woman in this country. So it's important for me to stand up for myself and to show that I have every right to be in whatever room I'm in. I have every right to speak my mind. I have every right to make mistakes. And I have every right to succeed."
