Hollywood celebrities embrace the new cosmetic surgery trend: the vampire breast lift

  • Popularized by Kim Kardashian when she posted a #VampireFacial selfie on Instagram in 2013.

  • The "vampire breast lift" is minimally invasive and a stem cell-based method of surgery. The method draws blood from the patients, and the blood is run through a centrifuge to separate the plasma. The plasma is injected back into the patient's breasts.

  • The surgery costs around $1, 700.

  • Unlike breast implants which stretches the skin, the vampire breast lift is supposed to thicken and smoothen the breast area.

ONTD Original: Remembering Amy Winehouse 7 years after her death

Amy Jade Winehouse (1983 - 2011) died of alcohol poisoning 7 years ago today (a death that was exacerbated by a heart condition resulting from years of addiction and bulimia), making her another name on the list of the "27 Club" (I didn't want to write she was a 'member' of the club, it just sounded bad and weirdly encouraging of this sad phenomenon).

'Wildlife' Releases Poster; Interview with Director Paul Dano

  • Wildlife, based on the 1990 novel by Richard Ford, will be in limited release starting October 19th.

  • Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood), makes his feature directorial debut with this film, which premiered at Sundance and garnered rave reviews. He co-wrote the film with his longtime partner, actor/writer Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick).

  • Plot summary: After a move to Montana, the relationship between Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) begins to crumble in front of their young son Joe (Ed Oxenbould).

  • Dano wanted to make the film for a long time, but didn't write a draft until after he'd contacted the author and bought the rights with Kazan. His first draft needed work, and Kazan helped him translate the imagery and emotion on the page into scenes that could be shot.

  • Because they had optioned the book themselves, they weren't under any deadlines to get it done, and worked on it for a while. They used Stephen King's advice from On Writing, and put away the screenplay for weeks at a time so they could come back and look at it with fresh eyes.

  • Dano notes that at a certain point you have to decide you are done with one phase and move on; otherwise, you could be tinkering with it forever.

Louise Fletcher, Nurse Ratched, and the Making of Cuckoo’s Nest’s Unforgettable Villain

The article writer Michael Schulman notes "from our perspective in the mid-#MeToo, post-Lean In era, you could see her as an overzealous working woman, a frustrated bureaucrat trying to maintain professionalism in the face of one R. P. McMurphy, a rabble-rousing psychiatric patient who’s been convicted of assault and statutory rape. (He’s the hero.)" and asks "Is Nurse Ratched a feminist anti-heroine waiting to happen? Or is she a monster?"

Louise Fletcher came up with her own detailed backstory for Ratched, revealing “She had sacrificed her life for other people. She hasn’t married, hadn’t done this, hadn’t done that, and was self-sufficient on her own leading this life, because she dedicated her life, her earlier life, to other people who needed her.” She also said that Ratched was a 40-year-old virgin who was “very turned on by this McMurphy guy.”

Asked if she thinks Ratched had any redeeming qualities, "Well, she saw that your teeth were clean. Control is one of the most terrible issues, isn’t it? Some people just have to have total control or they can’t be in this world.”

Fletcher laughed at the memes that came out during the election comparing Hillary Clinton to Ratched, “She’s got my hair, all right!” Schulman thinks about the comparison, writing "After all, isn’t Donald Trump a kind of McMurphy, fueled by impulse, chaos, and testosterone, able to rally a disaffected populace? Now that we’re living in McMurphy’s world, President Ratched doesn’t sound much worse. At least our teeth would be clean."



R. Kelly Responds to Sexual Misconduct Allegations in 19-Minute Song, ‘I Admit’

He addresses the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against him in a sprawling 19-minute song called “I Admit It” 

“I done made some mistakes. How they gon’ say I don’t respect these women, when all I’ve done is represent (30 years)/ Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends). I admit I fuck with all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies/ But tell me how they call it pedophile, because that shit is crazy."

"You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions/ But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion/ Yeah, go ahead and stone me, point your finger at me/ Turn the world against me, but only god can mute me."

"Said I’m abusing these women, what the fuc that’s some absurd shit/ They’re brainwashed, really?/ Kidnapped, really?/ Can’t eat, really?/ Real talk, that shit sound silly.”

on his struggles with illiteracy
"I admit I can’t spell for shit/I admit that all I hear is hits (ohh)/I admit that I couldn’t read the teleprompter when the Grammy’s asked me to present (yeah)"

he was sexually assaulted as a child
“Now, I admit a family member touched me (touched me, touched me, touched me)/From a child to the age 14, yeah/While I laid asleep, took my virginity/So scared to say something, so I just put the blame on me,”

New rapper Saweetie is on the come UP

- Up & coming Bay Area/Sacramento rapper Saweetie became an overnight sensation when she posted "Icy Girl," a freestyle over Khia's “My Neck, My Back,” late last year. The freestyle eventually went on to become a song, released on her debut EP and the song is now getting radio spins and even has a remix featuring Kehlani.

- Saweetie graduated from the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism in 2016 with an emphasis in business, but she decided to chase her dreams of being a rapper.

- The rapper made a splash on social media/soundcloud when she recorded what she calls "car raps" where she freestyled over popular beats. She told Billboard, "After I graduated, I didn’t have the resources to go to the studio, which is why I then went to social media."

- Saweetie is working on expanding her EP now, while recording with some major names in music. She tells Billboard, "I'm working with David Guetta, and we’ve been cooking up something special... I don't want to ruin the surprise. He's like one of the top artists globally, and he's a DJ, so the fact that he's being recognized as an artist just shows the hard work that he's been putting in. I’m so happy to become a part of that David Guetta famous brand." On working with Rich The Kid & G-Eazy on a new song, "High Maintence didn’t have any features, so the fact that I’m collaborating with other artists is extremely exciting."

Gathering of the Juggalos 2018 Recap!

The 2018 Gathering happened this past weekend in Ohio and included the usual women without shirts, men without bathing, people in clown makeup being dowsed with Faygo, and general lawlessness, so it's a good thing that it was recently learned that juggalos beat facial recognition software on account of being clowns, so take that FBI (Speaking of, the FBI's 2011 report about about Juggalos being a gang was recently declassified, if you want to take a look at that it can be found here - according to the report Juggalos are in a gang war with MS-13 in California and are holding their own, so good for them).

The most exciting moment at this years Gathering came when people in the crowd were shooting bottle rockets towards the stage and managed to hit YelaWolf in the face with one. He kept performing though like nothing happened which was a very 'gathering' move.

What We Learnt Overall about DW Series 11 at SDCC...
-no two-parter episodes for Season 11! All standalones!
-all new villains, all new monsters - don't expect to see old villains like the Daleks popping up.
-there WILL be a Christmas Special!!
-new sonic screwdriver!
-Jodie calls the Doctor "a pillar of hope striving for brightness and inclusion" 💖
-Series 11 will finally include the first stories in DW’s 55 year history by writers of colour!
-Also, Showrunner Chris Chibnall confirmed that the directors are equally split male/female, and all but one of the editors is female – with diversity behind the camera being a priority: "We’re doing lots, but our plan across time is to do lots more... It should be the most inclusive show on television. The whole concept of Doctor Who is that anybody can go anywhere and do anything, and we wanted to reflect that on-screen and off."
-The new TARDIS team is an ENSEMBLE of friends with the Doctor at their centre!
-Series 11 is the perfect starting point for those who have never seen DW before, as all new villains and stories and a fresh start, and anything that needs explaining will be. Deliberately the most inclusive and accessible series of Who yet.

Octavia Spencer, Queen Latifah To Bring Racially Charged ‘The Rhinelander Affair’ To Screen

The Rhinelander Affair, written by William Kinsolving, follows the controversial 1925 divorce trial in New York involving a man from an upper-class New Rochelle family who married a bi-racial, working-class woman. 

It is a ripped from the headlines story from the 1920s.

The project is being produced for the big screen by Mark and Christine Holder, Octavia Spencer, Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere’s Flavor Unit Entertainment and Dave Broome.

The issue was whether Alice Jones duped Leonard Rhinelander into marrying her by hiding the fact that she was bi-racial (mother was white and father was bi-racial).
Alice had to disrobe and show parts of her body to an all-white, all-male jury, to prove her case that there was no fraud and that Leonard had to have known she was part black.

It was a roller coaster ride about money, love, racism and betrayal.


Mac Miller Breaks Silence on Ariana Grande

dude got dumped, got arrested for dui and then wrote a new album in 2 months and is now promoting it! he was on beats 1 and this is what he had to say about our fave lowkey italian:
"Life is stressful. So, of course there were stressful times. It's not that unique. You know, like, I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it's that simple, you know?"

miller also says he heasn't really seen the instagram love of ari and pete like we have:
"Like, I haven't been on the internet," he said. "So, you know, people have assumed that I'm ... 'Are you OK? Is everything OK?'" Because I was about to drop the album. And also, like, I don't know, it just all seemed kind of unimportant, the need to show people I was OK. Like, what is that? Where does that come from? Why? Why do we have this need to use social media and the internet?"


will pete and ari work through the bad times, ontd? #LoveIsLit2k18
