Noah Centineo gets asked the Internet’s most controversial question: GIF or JIF?



The Internet’s questionable new boyfriend gets asked the controversial question: GIF with a hard G or Jif like the peanut butter?

The creator of the GIF, Steve Wilhite, has already gone on record in 2013 to say: “The Oxford English Dictionary accepts both pronunciations. They are wrong. It is a soft ‘G,’ pronounced ‘jif.’

A win for those on Team JIF, but a complete IWillNotAcceptThat.gif from Team GIF. So what was Noah Centumblr’s answer anyways?

“Oh dude, it depends on the day. But usually, JIF.”

Maya Rudolph explained that her white SNL castmates would make fun of her hair



She spoke about the struggles about growing up mixed race including trying to tame her "superthick and supercurly" hair, and that followed her into her sketch comedy career as well.

The actress explained that her white castmates would even make fun of her because of it.
"My hair was natural when I started 'Saturday Night Live,' but it was so thick to get under the wigs. [The blow-dry station] was on the same hallway as a lot of the dudes' dressing rooms. And every [expletive] Friday night, we'd hear some [expletive] white guy walking down the hall going, 'Is something burning in here? What's burning?' I'm like -- I'm. Get-ting. My. Hair. Done.'"

She doesn't think she was hired to play the "black lady" on the show, but still thinks she was often left out of white roles.

She struggled to control her hair without having a female figure in the household. Her hair problems even followed her into college, where students would ridicule her hair.
"'Your hair is so ethnic. Can I touch it?' I actually have an aversion to that word, way more than people say they hate the word 'moist.' I hate the word 'ethnic' in that way. It's like they're talking about a print."

'Green Book' starring Viggo Mortensen & Mahershala Ali wins TIFF's coveted 'People's Choice Award'




Not to be confused with the garbage People's Choice Awards, the Toronto Film Festival's top prize is usually given to movies that not only have huge prestige, but actually end up being big players in the upcoming awards season (case in point, last year's winner, 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', and previous winners 'Room', '12 Years a Slave', 'Silver Linings Playbook', 'The King's Speech', and 'La La Land').

This year's winner was the drama 'Green Book' starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali and Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen, directed by Peter Farrelly (yes, that one). Expect it to be a big one this coming season.

Runners up were Barry Jenkins' 'If Beale Street Could Talk' and Alfonso Cuaron's 'Roma'.

The full list of winners, which focuses mostly on Canadian productions, are at the source.

Katy Perry's Witness era is dead. Long live the Witness era.

katy dog

Katy Perry's Witness era is finally, mercifully dead. She gave an interview about her new life now that she has (finally) ended Witness: The Tour, her world tour that started in September 2017. If you'll remember, Witness came out in June 2017-- barely a year ago, though it seems so much longer-- to meh reactions. Her highest-charting single, "Chained To The Rhythm," charted at #4 in the U.S., and the album has sold just under a million copies worldwide.

c1451367-f3a0-4640-985b-9284bafa1243dfd81f31-11e7-4173-90e0-041bf4bf8f20 She admitted that the album's floppage gave her depression:

"I had bouts of situational depression. My heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn't react in the way I had expected to."

c1451367-f3a0-4640-985b-9284bafa1243dfd81f31-11e7-4173-90e0-041bf4bf8f20 Now, Katy says that she wants to go to Trader Joe's:

"I love going to Trader Joe's and walking down each aisle to catch up on the products since I've been gone. I'll literally be in there for two hours."

c1451367-f3a0-4640-985b-9284bafa1243dfd81f31-11e7-4173-90e0-041bf4bf8f20 Also, no more partying:

"I'd rather stay home and clean out my sock drawer than go to a party right now."

c1451367-f3a0-4640-985b-9284bafa1243dfd81f31-11e7-4173-90e0-041bf4bf8f20 She might do a movie:

"Maybe I'd like to make a film in the future finally, doing a kind of separate thing ... I would do a comedy. But it has to be... a little bit of a dark comedy."

Man, everyone was so hype for this era, and then it sucked. Anyways:

Has anything given you situational depression?
Where do you grocery shop?
Do you still party?
Do you like when musicians star in movies? Favorite dark comedy?

Cher, Tom Cruise bonded over dyslexia

They first met at Sean Penn and Madonna’s wedding in Malibu, 1985. Cruise was 22 at the time, 16 years her junior and fresh from his box-office hit Risky Business.

The singer opened up on what drew them to one another:

‘Then a bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic,’ ‘We didn’t go out till way later, but there definitely was a connection there.’

She also says that Rob Camilletti, a bagel baker 18 years her junior, is "possibly the one true love of my life".

Update on the Long-Awaited WICKED Film


Originally scheduled for 2019 Christmas Day, the long-awaited live action Wicked movie was removed unceremonioulsy from the schedule.

Is it happening?

“That was always a fake date. There wasn't a prayer in hell,” says Stephen Schwartz, who also says. “I will tell you 100 percent there will be a movie of Wicked and it won't be that far away but it won't be next year because we're still writing."

The script is going through drafts with Winnie Holtzman.

And they're much further along with the Wicked script than they are for Disenchanted.
