Official trailer for Amazon's Hercule Poirot series "The ABC Murders"

It’s 1933 and a killer travels the length and breadth of Britain via the railway network. The killer uses the alias ABC, and strikes in a methodical pattern, leaving a copy of the ABC railway guide at the scene of each of murder. As Poirot (John Malkovich) attempts to investigate he is thwarted on every front. If he is to match his most cunning nemesis, everything about him will be called into question: his authority, his integrity, his identity.

Sarah Phelps (The Casual Vacancy) wrote and executive produced the three-episode series, while Alex Gabassi directs. The series stars John Malkovich in the title role, Rupert Grint, Andrew Buchan, Anya Chalotra, Eamon Farren, Jack Farthing, Tara Fitzgerald, Shirley Henderson, Bronwyn James, Freya Mavor, and Michael Shaeffer. The series will stream on Prime Video on February 1, 2019 (US).

Jennifer Lawrence Got Really High and Screamed 'You Have to Poop!' at a Stranger

Jennifer Lawrence is so relatable. She got really high with rappers at Ellen Degeneres's birthday party, then yelled, "YOU HAVE TO POOP!" at a stranger while waiting in line for a luxury port-o-potty.

“I smoked a joint with some rappers, and their shit is different... And then I went to the port-a-potty to go pee, and there’s a woman there and she was like, no, go ahead." But then Jennifer said, "Look, you gotta poop."

"All of a sudden security is grabbing me because what I hadn’t realized is I am grabbing this woman by the shoulders, shaking her, screaming, ‘You have to poop! You have to poop!’ And the security guard is laughing so hard because he heard the whole exchange, and he’s like ‘You can’t grab her, but I agree, she gotta poop!”

A short interview with Macy Gray

Macy Gray calls herself lazy, unpractical and a bit messy: "I could have changed for this photo shoot, but so be it. We'll do it without a bra."

The interview is for her tenth album, Ruby, which isn't named after a person but simply because Gray likes the colour. She associates it with excitement and passion - which is part of the music on this album, I made it while being a bit ecstatic."

She was asked to write for Ariana Grande (Leave Me Lonely), the producer heard her voice, other people, a choir and a band got involved and that was the start of Ruby.

On music:
Rod Stewart - Baby Jane, especially because of the video. "MTV changed my life. I didn't know this Rod Stewart, but I wanted what he was doing. I don't know who I would have become without MTV."

Billie Holiday: "I taught myself her calm way of singing. I love that you can understand all her lyrics because of her clear articulation." [tell Ariana about it, red.]

Gray likes Samuel L. Jackson and Marlon Brando, saying about the last one she never saw a more attractive man than young Marlon.

When it comes to attractive men, she says most of them can be found in Spain. She loves to go out dancing in Madrid and Barcelona.

Her favourite fashion brand is Valentino, but thinks the newer stuff is too expensive, so sometimes she makes pictures of it and forwards it to her regular dressmaker. "I'm not interested in the brand, I'm interested in the (model of the) garment."

January's Hottest New Book Releases

The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker

Release date: January 15

About: In an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a freshman girl stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep—and doesn’t wake up. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate, Mei, cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics who carry her away, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. Then a second girl falls asleep, and then another, and panic takes hold of the college and spreads to the town. As the number of cases multiplies, classes are canceled, and stores begin to run out of supplies. A quarantine is established. The National Guard is summoned.

Mei, an outsider in the cliquish hierarchy of dorm life, finds herself thrust together with an eccentric, idealistic classmate. Two visiting professors try to protect their newborn baby as the once-quiet streets descend into chaos. A father succumbs to the illness, leaving his daughters to fend for themselves. And at the hospital, a new life grows within a college girl, unbeknownst to her—even as she sleeps. A psychiatrist, summoned from Los Angeles, attempts to make sense of the illness as it spreads through the town. Those infected are displaying unusual levels of brain activity, more than has ever been recorded. They are dreaming heightened dreams—but of what?

Written in gorgeous prose, The Dreamers is a breathtaking novel that startles and provokes, about the possibilities contained within a human life—in our waking days and, perhaps even more, in our dreams.
