Trans people are increasingly making their mark on an industry that is notoriously difficult to break. In 2018 alone, trans woman Paris Lees covered Vogue. Last week, Aaron Philip, a seventeen year old trans woman with cerebral palsy, was signed by Elite Modelling, a major modelling agency. And now, at New York Fashion Week, Marco Marco showed its newest collection using 34 trans models in a show "hailed as a groundbreaking moment in the fashion industry."
The designer said he wanted to create a space to "celebrate trans bodies." https://t.co/8wsrx42X20— PinkNews (@PinkNews) September 12, 2018
Laverne Cox, who started the hashtag #TransIsBeautiful three years ago to celebrate diversity and empower trans people, attended the runway show and posted a video of the models on the runway on her instagram:

He said he wasn't offended when Williams asked him what his "birth name" was. https://t.co/AbnOY6rxvF— PinkNews (@PinkNews) September 11, 2018
Robbie Williams, popstar and former member of British boy band Take That, landed himself in hot water over the tone deaf question he asked a trans man as a judge on ITV's X Factor this past weekend.
Felix Shepherd's audition, where his rendition of Kodaline's "All I Want" earned him praise from the judging panel, aired this past Saturday. In his clip, Shepherd commented that he hoped to prove that he was "more than just a transgender guy" as he participated in the audition program.
With all the sensitivity of a bull in a china shop, Williams then asked Shepherd, "So when you were born, what was your name?" This line of questioning sparked a controversy online, with one commenter calling Williams "darn rude" and another commenting that, due to Williams' insensitive actions, X Factor was now "dead and finished."
Asking a trans person their birth name (or "deadname") is widely seen as inappropriate, if not outright transphobic. However, Shepherd himself has since said that Williams asked "if it was OK" to ask about Shepherd's prior name (in an unaired segment), adding that he "wasn't offended by anything he said, so that's the most important thing."
Shepherd later tweeted about the issue:

Chloe Moretz, star of The Miseducation of Cameron Post, has now sold her own docuseries on the subject of gay conversion therapy in America to a major company.
In The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Moretz plays Cameron, a girl sent to a Christian gay conversion camp after she is caught having sex with another girl. Moretz herself grew up in a "conservative southern baptist community" and was no stranger to the concept of "praying the gay away" prior to her involvement in the film (a belief neither she nor her family espoused).
However, it wasn't until she was preparing for her role as Cameron that she became aware of the "modernity of the issue of gay conversion in America", describing it as a "silent epidemic that, now more than ever, especially under our administration, is growing in traction." Inspired by her turn as Cameron Post, Moretz is now fighting to put a stop to gay conversion, with her docuseries dedicated to "exposing the realities" of gay conversion therapies.
Moretz also took the opportunity to comment on ongoing tensions between trans and non trans individuals in the LGBT community, stating, "I think what’s going on against the trans community is really devastating and incredibly dark ... The way they are being ostracised is different to other layers in the community. We all need to stand together, because trans lives matter. We all need to stand together in unison, because they can’t take us down if we all do that.”

Karlie Kloss Addresses Her Connection to the Trump White House: I Have 'My Own Moral Compass' https://t.co/MrWjGY2ei4— People (@people) September 12, 2018
Karlie Kloss Kushner assures us that she vehemently does not support Trump’s politics, though Karlie Kloss Kushner has remained pretty mum about the “in-law” issue—until now. “At the end of the day, I’ve had to make decisions based on my own moral compass—forget what the public says, forget social media,” Karlie Kloss Kushner said. “I’ve chosen to be with the man I love despite the complications. It’s frustrating, to be honest, that the spotlight is always shifted away from my career toward my relationship. I don’t think the same happens in conversations with men.”
Karlie Kloss Kushner also states, “Josh and I share a lot of the same liberal values that guide our lives and the things we stand for.” She added, “We’ve really grown together personally and professionally. Josh knows that I’m just a nerdy, curious human being. I think that’s why he loves me. We have each other’s back.”

Here's 10 (5) underrated and overlooked pop gems by an underrated pop gem herself LIZ shared with Dummy Magazine, who also details personal insights to her choices.
10. "Radar" by Britney Spears
“OK. So, this is one of my favorite Britney songs ever. I imagine her hunting her prey as a black velvet panther. It goes down like a mango boptini with a spicy kick. The song is pop perfection, but it was never on the radio or really, truly, pushed as a single. Her label put it on two albums, 'Blackout' and 'Circus (Deluxe Version)', which makes you think they had to be considering giving it some real promo love. But alas, all us stans got was this bizarre music video where she comes off as some Eastern European pop star (you know, the kind whose mob boyfriend owns the record label she's signed to and encourages other men to gaze at her, but pulls a gun on anyone who tries to "touch").
Her styling in it is awful and they objectify a polo horse as it's getting hosed down. This might've been the era of her fake British accent, so that explains a lot. Let's pretend this video never happened, but you should definitely add this track to your playlists...you won't be sorry. #JusticeforRadar.”

- Wendy had Tamar on to talk about the recent Braxton Family Values drama and to talk about the Iyanla: Fix My Life two part special coming next month where the Braxton sisters hash out their drama.
- Wendy addressed the rumor that something had happened during the taping that caused Tamar to lash out, storm off set and then give a quote to TMZ that "Rhonda (Iyanla's real name) is the devil, trust me!".
- Tamar said the reason for the outburst was something was said in the room that triggered something within her and that's when she, finally, had to admit to her sisters she had been molested by multiple family members.
- According to people who attended the taping, once Tamar made the revelation, the room went silent and Wendy started to cry and comfort Tamar. Wendy did not press the issue further except to say Tamar was a strong woman for talking about it publicly.
- The interview will air tomorrow.

Two years ago, Warren Beatty returned to the screen with his dream-film about Howard Hughes: Rules Don't Apply.
Warren Beatty dismissed the negative feedback surrounding his film "Rules Don't Apply," claiming the test audience was “too ethnic" https://t.co/gHjtwGDpwg— Variety (@Variety) September 12, 2018
Several months before release, distributors 20th Century Fox and Regency Entertainment held test screenings to decide how to market and open the film properly. The results were.... not great. Audiences thought the film dragged and those under 40 didn't know who Howard Hughes was, and complained that his behavior in the film was disturbing and repetitive.
According to producer Arnon Milchan's son, Yariv, Beatty dismissed the reactions, stating that the 25% Latino and 19% Asian audience was "too ethnic". Beatty refused to screen to more test audiences, instead relying on family, friends, and reporters who would write puff pieces on him to make the film look good. He also insisted on the film receiving a wide release on Thanksgiving weekend, ballooning the film marketing budget from $12-14 to more than $20 million. With another $31 million used for production, the film became the biggest flop in recent memory, grossing only $3.9 million worldwide.
The film is now is a ligation fiasco. Milchan sued the films investors to recoup marketing costs. The investors then counter-sued Milchan, blaming him for film flopping (Dirtbag Brett Ratner, one of the investors, actually claims Milchan fell asleep during a screening.)
Since release, Beatty has been trying to save his film, demanding studio meetings to discuss home release strategies. Neither bothered.

I thought he was going to die. I thought he was going to sleep one night and that he would have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning."
- Most of this happened around 2014
- At the time of his DUI and egg throwing incident, his team was asking him to check into rehab but he refused to listen to them. Scooter says Bieber was in a dark place around 2014 onward
- Him taking a break from touring wasn't to ride bicycles like he said, it was cause he needed help, "He used to yell and scream at me, and he wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. So, I just refused."
- Bieber is now clean and walking with Jesus cause, according to Scooter he decided to get help himself. "I think he made a conscious choice for himself to change, I think for a year and a half I failed miserably trying to help him, because for year and a half he didn't change...It wasn't until one day he woke up and said, 'Hey I need to talk to you, I don't want to be that person anymore.'"

So, of course the awards season has officially kicked off, as the big and small production companies are slowly sending out FYC (for your consideration) screeners and promos. Those already out include 'Disobedience' from Bleecker Street Pictures and 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' from Focus Features.
Of course the biggest FYC push right now, as you can see above and in the source link below, is Disney's 'Black Panther', which wants guild/Academy/BAFTA/etc members to recognize the movie in a fuckload of categories, including Best Picture, Best Director, and many more.
Other smaller companies who have revealed their FYC pages (which industry people and Academy voters know all about), include:
-- Focus Features: 'Tully'; 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?'; 'BlackkKlansmen'; 'Boy Erased'; 'Mary Queen of Scots'; and 'On the Basis of Sex' in various categories
-- Sony Pictures: 'The Front Runner'; 'White Boy Rick'
-- Bleecker Street: 'Colette'; 'Leave No Trace'; 'Disobedience'; 'What They Had'; 'McQueen'
The rest of the big companies will have their FYC websites updated throughout the fall, so stay tuned. If you've seen the buzz from the recent film festivals, you can guess what will get the biggest push.
