Justin Bieber tells creepy Hillsong pastor to fuck off & Post Malone to sing @ his wedding




Justin Bieber has apparently had a falling out with cult leader Karl Lentz. The two who were inseparable and gave off creepy Next Door Male exclusive vibes have stopped talking. The cult leader was a 'spiritual guide', during Beiber's troubled times back in 2013. Beiber who is still undergoing legal woes over throwing eggs at his neighbor's house may can face deportation, no fucking joke bro. It was during that time the cult leader took Justin under his wing and Beiber started being psycho as fuck singing christian songs at coachella and his weird ass wedding announcement sounding like some Duggar shit. Apparently the cult leader was asked what happened with Beibz and he sweated dodging that question. They haven't been seen together in public for months.





I guess Justin switched up homies and linked up with Post Malone. The 2 stoners have become best bro's, "I just want him to be happy. Whatever he does, I hope he's happy," White Iverson stated. The 'ra ta ta ta' rapper would be more than elated to perform at his bro's wedding. With these 2 in the room, you don't know where that smell is coming from.

Happy 10th Anniversary, AVATAR; THE LAST AIRBENDER Finale! Creators Recap + Best Episodes


Everybody's favorite nickelodeon show (and if it isn't, get taste) had it's finale, SOZIN'S COMET, air ten years ago (yesterday) on July 19th, 2008.
Creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko talk to Newsweek and their atrocious website about how it was made.

  • The finale was originally planned for three episodes, but the executive producer told them to keep everything intact and he would figure something out.

  • The first part, THE PHOENIX KING, they talk about how Zuko is growing into a decent ruler, unlike his ancestors.

  • THE OLD MASTERS (part 2) uses the image of The Lion Turtle from the unaired pilot that predates the Avatar's existence.

  • Part 3, INTO THE INFERNO, combined CGI and 2D animation for the airship fleet to attack The Earth Kingdom, and also the now-iconic fight between Zuko and Azula, whose music Konietzko says is his favorite piece in the show.

  • The light fight in the final part, AVATAR AANG, was tricky to conceptualize, and they had to storyboard with color.


Let's keep the party going with an Original folded into this post - 3 OF THE BEST EPISODES OF AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER.

Over the course of nearly a year, I rewatched the entire series, finishing just in time for the anniversary. It's a good show, and with Korra...well, does anyone talk about Korra still? No, we still talk about TLA.

So let's get started.

Whoopi Goldberg Addresses Jeanine Pirro Blowup on The View


  • After yesterday's episode of The View got heated over Fox News panelist Jeanine Pirro accused Whoopi Goldberg of having 'Trump Derragement Syndrome', Goldberg cut the segment short and sent it to commercial out of anger.

  • Page Six reported that during the commercial break, Goldberg chased Pirro down and told her 'fuck you' and 'get the fuck out of the studio'.

  • Whoopi took to the air this morning to apologize for lashing out on air and to let people know that Jeanine left some tidbits out of her story.

  • Pirro went on Fox News last night and claimed Whoopi spit on her and basically confirmed she is the one who told Page Six what happened.

  • Whoopi say she lashed out at the cohosts during the break and at the audience and producers on set.

  • Sources close to the View say Pirro allegedly called the other panelist 'cunts' and the producers on set 'a bunch of cocksuckers'.

Sophia Lillis Isn't Really a Redhead (and Other Fun Facts)


  • Sophia Lillis, the 16 year-old actress who plays a younger version of Amy Adams in Sharp Objects, and a younger version of Jessica Chastain in IT, is not actually a redhead! But she has enjoyed playing them.

  • Her favorite Amy Adams movie is Junebug, and Mama was the first Jessica Chastain film she ever saw.

  • She wears a nose prosthetic in Sharp Objects to make her nose pointier and more similar to Amy Adams' nose.

  • Sophia learned to roller-skate for her role in Sharp Objects.

  • Says that the first scene she did with Patricia Clarkson was the one at the funeral, and that she's good but it was intimidating, and the actress playing Marian kept her at ease.

  • Her role in Nancy Drew is not altogether dissimilar from roles she's played before, but the differences are refreshing.

Jimmy Kimmel: Trump Is The Taylor Swift of treason




Earlier this week 45 basically sided with Putin and disregarded Russia's interference with the 2016 elections.

"With all of this Moscow madness happening, according to a new poll from Reuters, 71 percent of Republican voters have a favorable view of how Trump has been dealing with Russia. Which is nuts!" Kimmel said. "But I was thinking about this today, and I think there's a simple explanation for it: They might not like what he's doing, they might not like him... but they love how pissed off it makes Democrats, and so they want it to keep happening."

He added, "Well, Trump kept his peace going by calling out his haters today on Twitter. He's the Taylor Swift of treason, he really is."

Jude Law Says Dumbeldore Isn't Explicitly Gay Since "Your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you"


– In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jude Law broke his silence about playing a straightwashed character after director David Yates spilled the beans and then Rowling got mad at him for telling anyone what she didn't do, again. Law explained that he asked Rowling about it, and she confirmed that he's gay (lol that he had to ask?), but he goes on to say that humans are "multifaceted" and that "your sexuality doesn't necessarily define you."
– Law also said that he does not share any scenes with Depp in the film and that "this is only Part 2 of a longer story", hinting that we could see more about Dumbeldore's sexuality in future blockbuster films. Interview quotes below:

There was some uproar earlier this year when director David Yates told EW the character not “explicitly gay” in this film. What’s your take on how apparent Dumbledore’s sexuality should be?
"Jo Rowling revealed some years back that Dumbledore was gay. That was a question I actually asked Jo and she said, yes, he’s gay. But as with humans, your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you; he’s multifaceted. I suppose the question is: How is Dumbledore’s sexuality depicted in this film? What you got to remember this is only the second Fantastic Beasts film in a series and what’s brilliant about Jo’s writing is how she reveals her characters, peels them to the heart over time. You’re just getting to know Albus in this film, and there’s obviously a lot more to come. We learn a little about his past in the beginning of this film, and characters and their relationships will unfold naturally which I’m excited to reveal. But we’re not going to reveal everything all at once."

Obviously, Dumbledore had a relationship with Grindelwald. What’s that relationship like at this point in time? And what was it like working with Johnny Depp?
"I don’t actually have any scenes with Johnny. As I said before, this is only Part 2 of a longer story. I’ve always admired him from afar, but we don’t know each other, and I’ve not yet met him on this. In many ways that suits the relationship as it’s been many years since they’ve seen each other. So there’s complexity in that that’s fun to mine. Again, the past will reveal itself."

I can represent other girls out there and make them feel confident, which is hard in this world where everyone just wants to be thicc.

Evangelion 4.0 movie to be FINALLY released in 2020


- A recap on the Rebuild of Evangelion movies' release:
  2007: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone
  2009: Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.
  2012: Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo.

and now finally after 6 years since the last Rebuild movie, the 4th and FINAL Rebuild movie is officially slated for 2020 in Japan. There is no international release date for now. The anouncement was made during the teaser that debuted prior to screenings of Mamoru Hosoda's new Mirai no Mirai film which opened today.

-  Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno was busy co-directing the 2016 Shin Godzilla movie, hence causing numerous delays to the final Rebuild movie, something which Anno had apologized for:

"To all the Evangelion fans, I'm really, really keeping you all waiting. I am truly sorry ... Evangelion can only be described as my soul. It's a work that chips off parts of me." "Up until then, after doing the third entry Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, I thought I wasn't going to make any more. At that time, I went into talks with Toho, and it saved me. I think this is how I'm able to keep making Evangelion. However, since it is a fact that I'm making everyone wait, I deeply apologize for that."

- Back in 2012, the title for the final Evangelion film was announced as Evangelion Shin Gekijōban :||, or Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The ":||" at the end of the Japanese title is meant to be the symbol used in music to denote repetition after reaching the end of a measure.
