New Pusha T Album: Kanye Paid 85k for Photo of Whitney's Bathroom Counter + Drake Diss

Pusha T has just released his new album, Daytona.

The album was produced by Kanye West and the cover art is a photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom countertop covered in drug paraphernalia from a period of time when she was at the height of her addiction.

The photo itself is controversial as it was taken secretly by one of Houston's family members and sold to the National Enquirer, where it first appeared.

Kanye reportedly personally paid $85,000 to license the photo.

In Keeping Up With The Musks, Elon declares war with the media

grimes.jpg

In an obvious desperate response to critics sounding off on Grimes, calling attention to the horrible Tesla working conditions, Elon wants to make a new site called Pravda. The site would rate trustworthiness on news outlets and journalists.




Musk kept writing rants about journalists, etc. Going off like Baby-Tr**p, he said he saw it coming.




As if that wasn't sad enough, it caught the attention of the red-headed stepchild, Donald Jr.

Celebs Share Their Roommate Stories




MELISSA MCCARTHY ON HER COLLEGE ROOMMATE
“I was very punk at the time. I looked like Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith had a baby,” she shared. “I walked in [the dorm room] and there was a girl with like black hair, and I think a Clash T-shirt and like black high-tops. I was like, ‘What are the odds that two of us are in one room?! We won’t be made fun of!’ And then her sister came out of the bathroom, slaps up a White Snake poster and goes, ‘Are you her?'”

“And then her big ice breaker as we’re sitting there — because it’s so weird, you’re now going to sleep next to a stranger — and her big ice breaker was, ‘Hey, you know I live right down the street from Gacy,'” she recalled. “‘Yeah, John Wayne Gacy, I used to walk by the house.’ And I guess that was supposed to be like, ‘We’ll be friends forever!'” 

MARGOT ROBBIE ON SHARING A HOUSE WITH 5 FRIENDS
“I live with three boys, and I can’t tell you how hard it is to get your hand on toilet paper,” she said. “They steal it! We’ve got a girls’ bathroom and a boys’ bathroom, fortunately, but they sneak on up and steal all our toilet paper.” 

JUSTIN LONG ON LIVING WITH JONAH HILL 
“We fought over recycling,” Long said in 2009. “He would recycle everything. I would find banana peels and shards of glass in the recycling bin. We started getting in little fights like that, he left the bathroom door open, didn’t clean up after himself. Little things like that. It was time for a separation.”

NICK ROBINSON ON SHARING A BATHROOM WITH A GUY
“We do share a bathroom — that’s actually been the worst part of all of it,” Robinson said. “He’s got a large beard, it goes down to like [his stomach] or something. So every morning when I’m waking up and doing my routine I have to just dig this huge lump of hair out of the drain… It’s really gross.”

AUBREY PLAZA LIVED WITH A PIRATE
“I was living in Ghana for two months when I was in college doing a documentary film program and my roommate was a straight-up pirate. Like a literal pirate,” she said. “Her name was Jenny — I think. And she had blonde hair. She was like a transfer student, but she was like straight off a boat off the Caribbean,” the actress continued. “She went [to the school] because she thought she was going to like party and you know, get tan, and find like booty. I don’t know how else to explain it to you. She was always looking for treasure and she was always drunk.”

George Takei accuser lied about sexual assault




- said George Takei drugged and groped ( last year post)
- no drug at that time could incapacitate someone momentarily for them to be drowsy one minute and then later be able to drive home the same night
- poking a hole in his story, the interviewer decided to interview/ investigate what happened
- the accuser said he was assaulted after hearing about the Cosby allegations
- says he wasn’t attracted to Asian men and being a hot blonde surfer boy, he knew Takei would try to sleep with him and be a creep
- turns out he just got drunk and doesn’t actually have any real memory of assault except just being hit on by Takei at a party
- his hunch of being groped, he later stretched into a ‘fun party story’ that he admits is false by the end of the interview

'Hair Live!' will be NBC's 2019 spring musical



In the vein of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert and Grease Live!, NBC will bring Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical to the small screen in 2019. Craig Zadan & Neil Meron will produce, as they have for all of NBC's live musical events since The Sound of Music in 2013.

This April marked the 50th anniversary of the show's premiere on Broadway (though an earlier version ran off-Broadway before, including as the inaugural show for the Public Theater). The show deals with themes of race, sexual freedom, drug use, pacificism, environmentalism, religion, and astrology. It was controversial when first staged because of its anti-war stance and because it was the first time fully naked actors were seen on a Broadway stage; they were also charged with desecration of the American flag and use of obscene language.

The production ran for four years and 1,750 performances, closing on July 1, 1972. Many other professional productions have taken place around the world since, including four Broadway revivals.

We had all these private jokes and things like that. He hated it. He thought it was weird. But I was like, ‘OK whatever, I’m wearing a crown. It’s fine.' I felt like someone could look at us and think like ‘OK, he plays a king. She looks like a queen. They’re the king and queen of some really bitchin’ third-world country.’ ”

George Takei responds to new article investigating sexual assault claims against him

Writer Shane Snow released an article "Exclusive: George Takei’s Accuser Has Changed His Story of Drugging and Assault." George Takei and many of his supporters have framed this story as accuser, Scott Brunton, admitting that he lied about the assault and said it never happened. Takei tweeted that this story "closes the conversation," maintains that he does not remember the encounter, and wishes Brunton peace. He also retweeted users that say this article makes it clear that the allegations are false or that Brunton now admits this was a fun party story and not assault. If you actually read the article, this is not true.

Please read the entire article to understand the entire context, so that posts like the last one do not happen. Here is my attempt to summarize the main points of the article though:

Sesame Street Creators Suing STX Over "The Happytime Murders"


  • The creators of Sesame Street are suing STX films over the marketing campaign for their film "The Happytime Murders".

  • In the trailer for the film, they use the tagline "No Sesame. No Street" and shows Sesame Street like Puppets partaking in vulgar activities and language.

  • The creators argue the film's marketing is having a negative impact on the Sesame Street brand.

  • The lawsuit includes pages and pages of tweets from people saying they 'can't look at Sesame Street' the same now after watching the trailer.

  • STX hit back with a statement: "STX loved the idea of working closely with Brian Henson and the Jim Henson Company to tell the untold story of the active lives of Henson puppets when they’re not performing in front of children. While we’re disappointed that ‘Sesame Street’ does not share in the fun, we are confident in our legal position. We look forward to introducing adult moviegoers to our adorably unapologetic characters this summer."

French Open declines to give Serena Williams a seeding after maternity leave



Williams will go unseeded at Roland Garros.
It's her first major event since winning the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant.
The 23-time Grand Slam singles winner was ranked No. 1 in the world at the time she went on maternity leave.
As a result of her absence, Williams has dropped to 453rd.

She was only able to play in Paris because the WTA does have a “Special Ranking Rule” allowing players who were on maternity leave to use their previous rankings to enter up to eight tournaments within a year of their returns.

Some players supportive of Williams :

Simona Halep : “It’s normal to give birth. It’s normal to have protected ranking. … It’s more than tennis. So the people will decide what seed she will get. But in my opinion it’s good to protect the ranking when someone is giving birth.”

Elina Svitolina : “If you’re like finished or you stopped because you’re going to have a child and you will be in top eight, I think you should have this kind of thing, to have protected seeding. She was No. 1 so she deserves seeding.”

James Blake : “It’s not as if she left because of injury and lost her passion for the game. She had a kid, which we should all be celebrating, so when she comes back there should be a grace period where she can still be seeded. … It’s a kind of punishment, which is tough.”

Siren 1X10 (season finale) review




Highlights from the review:

[Spoiler (click to open)]
* The finale was underwhelming, but in a good way.

* Donna's death was sad; she was Ryn's connection to the sea and reason for going on land in the first place. There was a lot that could have been done with the character. Her death did allow Eline Powell (Ryn) to produce one of her best performances to date.

* We finally got some answers about Helen- she's the last living descendant of the child produced between a human and a mermaid and she's also related to Ben. She is several generations removed from being able to transform, which explains why she can be on land for so long.

* Maddie is the MVP of the whole show and is always there to provide Ryn genuine care and support that isn't driven by a Siren Song. Due to the Siren Song, it's hard to determine if Ben's feelings for Ryn are natural or forced on him, so unless they find a way to break its hold on him, there'll always be a question of consent.

* The reviewer doesn't feel like the episode needed the Xander-Calvin drama, it feels contrived in order to get Calvin to contact a local news station. All in all it was a great season and only faltered in the finale, otherwise it's hard tight writing and storytelling.
