Love, Marina."
– She also had an interview with Abbey Road Studios talking about how production is going: "Really, really well. I took a break and then have kind of been writing ever since. I've kind of been writing more than I ever have before... which is kind of unexpected because I thought I was just, not gonna do this anymore for a while. So I'm really excited to put something out – 'cause it's been I think three years."

Story of the Thailand Cave Rescue is Becoming a Movie

Because OF COURSE IT IS...and it's being made by the wrong people.

  • Michael Scott, the CEO and co-founder of the faith-based production company Pure Flix, will be turning the story of the rescue of the Thailand kids soccer team into a film. He previously produced the God's Not Dead films.

  • Scott lives part-time in Thailand and has already begun talks with some of the families, but not the boys because they remain hospitalized.

  • He claims it will not be a Christian film but an inspirational one.

Since Scarlett Johansson wants an Oscar so bad, maybe they can hire her as the hero coach.

Papa John's CEO caught being racist again

John Schnatter -- the founder and face of Papa Johns (and its former CEO) and racist goblin -- got caught being a racist again during a conference call back in May.

The call between PJ's executives and a marketing agency was a role-playing exercise designed for Schnatter to prevent another PR disaster for the company. It went as well as expected. Schantter was asked how he would deal with racist groups online and responded by stating that "Colonel Sanders called blacks [the n-word]" and when he lived in Indiana as a child he saw people drag blacks from trucks until they died. Soon after the call ended, the marketing agency terminated its contract with PJ.

Back in January, Schnatter stepped down as CEO after slamming the NFL protests, claiming that lack of leadership was hurting sales. His comments caused an immediate 11% drop in the companies stock (which has now grown to 25%). The companies stock has already dropped another 4% after this story was released.

Paulina, Belinda and Marta Sánchez give joint concert, Paulina messes up & causes drama

Mexican pop singers Paulina Rubio and Belinda, and Spanish Marta Sánchez joined forces to participate in Idolos 2.0, a concert that took place this weekend in the Palacio de los Deportes arena in Mexico DF.

However, you can't have these three artists together and be free of issues/drama: first, Paulina made headlines for her awkward beginning, where it wasn't clear if she didn't know they lyrics of her song, if she couldn't follow the music or if she couldn't find the right tone to start.

Ariana Grande talks politics, anxiety, and Manchester in Elle Magazine

Ariana's interview with Elle Magazine is out. A few key quotes below.

On politics: “Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people. Instead of unfriending people on Facebook who share different political views, comment! Have a conversation! Try to spread the fucking light.”

On the Manchester attack: “You hear about these things, you see it on the news, you tweet the hashtag. It’s happened before, and it’ll happen again. It makes you sad, you think about it for a little, and then people move on. But experiencing something like that firsthand, you think of everything differently… Everything is different.”

Logan director James Mangold warns that fandom backlash will push talent out of genre films.

-Mangold says that the backlash from these genre films (Star Wars, MCU & DCU) franchises are going to hamper any A-List talent from joining these properties.
-" Loving something is fine and good, but when it turns into trolling and harassment it does real material harm to the people involved in creating those things."
-And Mangold is right: people will leave. And people most vulnerable to this sort of treatment, women, and people of color and marginalized folk of all sorts, are going to be the ones who are driven out most quickly and easily."

-These are 1 out of 3 tweets he tweeted about this issue.
-Mangold directed Logan to high praise and acclaim from both fans, critics, and people.
