Nicki Minaj will not press charges against Cardi B

The source (Nicki's PR team lol) states that Nicki will not press charges because she was "totally unbothered by it".

Nicki and nobody on her team were injured either so she sees no reason to file a police report and carry on with the drama.

Cardi was elbowed in the head by the security team Nicki was hiding behind which caused that lump on her eyebrow. The confrontation started when Cardi overheard Nicki commenting on her mothering skills as well as her newborn daughter Kulture.

Nicki is reportedly playing it "totally cool" and not letting the incident effect her in the slightest (lol).

Do you think Nicki is actually unbothered ONTD?

Lana Del Rey's New Song References Interview Where She Wished She was Dead?

- Lana Del Rey posted a new snippet on her Instagram of a song called "Mariners Apartment Complex" a couple of days ago.

- A few years back during the Ultraviolence era, Lana sparked controversy over her #pensive thoughts expressing she wished she was dead when the interviewer was discussing Lana's musical heroes that passed away young like Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse.

- The quote got Francis Cobain's attention when she believed Lana was glamorizing death.

- The lyrics of "Mariners Apartment Complex" could be referencing the interview and its location it took place at, heard in the snippet and seen in a fan's tweet.

- Whether the interviewer misconstrued her tone to be actually serious instead of hyperbolic, Ms. Grant does not always have the best luck in choosing her words, when she was once accused of being anti-feminist some years back. However with her most recent album Lust For Life, she shares a lot more liberal views than what was assumed of her.

10 (4) sharp facts about True Blood for its 10 years anniversary

The show debuted on September 7, 2008 and concluded in August 2014 after 80 episodes. This trash show had everything Game Of Thrones wishes it had : sex, violence, more sex, more violence, sex during violent moments and violence during sex, and also humor and became the highest-rating show since the Sopranos.

Here's 4 things you might not now and 4 excuses for us to take a nostalgic trip back to BonTemps.

1. Harris (original writer of the books) used the vampires to comment on gay rights

  • “When I began framing how I was going to represent the vampires, it suddenly occurred to me that it would be interesting if they were a minority that was trying to get equal rights,” “It just seemed to fit with what was happening in the world right then.”

  • Ball didn’t agree with her. “I have a hard time seeing the vampires as a metaphor for gays and lesbians,” he told Rolling Stone. “Just because the vampires on our show are, for the most part, vicious murderers and predators, and I’m gay myself, so I don’t really want to say, ‘Hey, gays and lesbians are basically viciously amoral murderers.’”

Early review round-up: Halloween

Halloween had its world premiere last night in the Midnight Madness section of TIFF. Early reviews praise Jamie Lee Curtis, John Carpenter's score and its fresh suspense. "Fan service" was thrown around a few times, but mostly in a positive way.

Snippets behind the cut:

Nerdist: A profoundly feminist re-examination of its psychology of trauma through its iconography. It’s also a rip-roaring slasher flick that’s hands down the best Halloween sequel ever.

Entertainment Weekly: The movie mostly works because it’s so fundamental, and funny too: Michael still never speaks; his mask and his slow, deadly, deliberate walk say everything they need to. At 59, Curtis seems to have fully arrived in her role as a midnight-madness queen.

Variety: That makes this new “Halloween” an act of fan service disguised as a horror movie. The fact it works as both means that Green has pulled off what he set out to do, tying up the mythology that Carpenter and company established, while delivering plenty of fresh suspense — and grisly-creative kills — for younger audiences.

The Hollywood Reporter: Carpenter should be pleased, and so should genre buffs — for once, this is a pic their less geeky girl/boyfriends should enjoy.

The film hits theaters October 18.


First reviews are in for 'Ben is Back' starring Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges

Long story short: yes, we have two drug-addiction melodramas this year between parent and child. Yes, this one is also getting insane universal acclaim for the leads, this time Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges, and they will probably be in the Oscars race this year.

'Ben is Back' as a movie is getting mixed reviews, but the acting is top notch. Now it's just Lucas Hedges's worry of which of his two lead roles he's going to put in for Best Actor this year, this or Boy Erased. I'm guessing it'll be this one since this got WAY better reviews for him. 'Ben is Back' hits theaters in December.

Also, methinks Lucas might need a tag here soon since he's got so many damn movies out this fall.

Peter Dinklage talks about Tyrion's complicated feelings for Jon and Daenerys

Peter on Jon and Daenerys and their romance:

"Ah, it’s complicated…” Dinklage says. “A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better. He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is], because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous.”


Kendall Jenner and Anwar Hadid caught hooking up again

Kendall Jenner (22) and Anwar Hadid (19) are apparently hooking up again. On Wednesday, Kendall was at a club with Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid and according to a source Kendall and Anwar couldn't keep their hands off each other.

“Kendall was sitting with Anwar all night and made out with him for quite some time. They didn’t give a damn who saw them.”

They were spotted again at the same nightclub on Friday.

Kendall and Anwar were also seen together last week in LA / Malibu with a group of friends (including Bella).

The two were first linked back in June, when pictures of them making out surfaced after the CFDA Fashion Awards. Kendall has spent the summer dating Ben Simmons, but the two have apparently split.

Lana Condor disappointed and hurt by Israel Broussard's insensitive Tweets

During a recent interview, Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before actress Lana Condor was asked her thoughts on her co-star Israel Broussard's history of racist tweets:

“Yeah, man. It’s very, very, very disappointing. And hurtful. Particularly for all the obvious reasons. The things he said are totally and completely wrong and upsetting. For me personally, I’m the one that has to answer these questions. That’s really unfair given that it should be him speaking on behalf of his actions. It’s very upsetting and unfortunate. I hope that he learns from this and grows to be a better person. I couldn't imagine him not being better.”

Last month, Twitter users pulled up racist tweets and likes that weren’t even from that long ago. Some gems included:
🚮 “Dogs can sense earthquakes. Too bad Japan ate them all.”
🚮 “I'm not going out for a gay role, thank you though. Haha.”
🚮 “Hashtags don’t fucken matter. But all lives do. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Blue lives matter.”

Just to name a few.

Israel later apologized on Twitter, writing, “I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media. I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize. This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I am dedicated to be a more informed and educated version of myself. Much love — Israel.”

First reviews in for 'Life Itself', from the creator of 'This is Us'

I mention the 'creator of This is Us' for a reason, because all the reviews are calling the upcoming drama 'Life Itself' a manipulative piece of shit.

Those who watch 'This is Us' can understand the similarities, but this movie is being TRASHED. It premiered yesterday at TIFF as well. I cackled especially at Louis Peitzman's review under the cut. The all-star cast isn't going to help this pile of drivel (no awards in the future for this one).

The Staircase lawyer David Rudolf says Netflix series on murder case exposes flaws in justice system

-Rudolf says he's received good feedback on the problems with the criminal justice system
-He agreed to be filmed so people could see how the system works/doesn't work
-He thinks the jurors saw the amount of blood from the crime and automatically assumed guilt - but he points out head wounds can be very bloody and spurt everywhere
-He still thinks Mike Peterson was wrongly convicted

Bonus: A ridiculed "Owl Theory" says Kathleen Peterson was attacked by an owl outside her house, thus explaining the talon-like marks on her scalp, and also the blood trail from her front yard to the staircase. Why? Because a single feather was found near her and was never tested.

ONTD Original: Comparing/Contrasting BTVS: The Movie/Tv show

Having recently rewatched BTVS: The Movie I was compelled to compare/contrast what we know in the movie vs. the tv show! There were a lot of things that changed once Buffy was adapted for tv.

The Movie: Buffy has no last name. Buffy is in her senior year of high school when called to be The Vampire Slayer by Merrick. Hemrey High Stadium is kept in tact after Buffy defeats all the vampires.
Tv Show: Buffy is known as Buffy Summers. Buffy is in her sophomore year of high school when called to be The Vampire Slayer by Merrick. Buffy burns down Hemrey High Stadium in order to kill all the vampires inside.

In both universes Buffy is the most popular girl in her class and is known to be stuck up and basic at school. Both are cheerleaders at Hemerey.

First reviews for Barry Jenkins' 'If Beale Street Could Talk' at TIFF

Lady Gaga says "fame is very unnatural" at #TIFF18 presscon

  • Grammy® award-winning singer and actress Lady Gaga attended the #TIFF18 presscon for her film debut 'A Star is Born' today. The "Paparazzi" singer said during the presscon that "fame is very unnatural" and Hollywood should intervene to save artists struggling from mental health, addiction, and substance abuse issues.

  • “I think what would be wonderful is that we intervene early in life when we see people struggling. I think fame is very unnatural. And we see that Jack is struggling is this film. There's substance abuse, there's trauma. Ally also, for me, is struggling from depression at the beginning of the film, in not believing in herself. I think it's important that we guide artists and take care of them on a psychological level as they rise. People think that we change, but it's not us that changes, it’s everyone around us that changes.”
