Queer Women Dominate Grammy 2019 Nominations

Queer women were dominating in the Grammy award nominations.

Brandi Carlile is the most-nominated woman at the 61st annual Grammy Awards with six nominations including album of the year. Carlile told Billboard that she was grateful for the trailblazers: "Those of us that are just a little bit younger than [Linda Perry], and the Indigo Girls, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, K.D. Lang, George Michael -- and so on and so forth -- our road has been paved with parody and humility. And that’s something I’ll never forget. Those people have been parodied for being gay through the course of their career in a way that would never be acceptable now."

Lady Gaga is a close second with five nominations with “Shallow” receiving noms in the song of the year and record of the year categories.

Janelle Monáe was also nominated for album of the year with the Dirty Computer.

Bebe Rexha is nominated for best new artist.

Sophie, Meshell Ndegeocello and St. Vincent all received nominations in genre-specific categories as well. Linda Perry was also nominated in producer of the year, non-classical field.


Danielle Fishel is pregnant!

Danielle announced on social media that she and husband Jensen Karp are expecting their first child, a boy, in July.

Mara Wilson Tweets Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Emotion'

Matilda and A Simple Wish actress and fan of ONTD Mara Wilson posted a screenshot of the underrated hit "Run Away With Me" on Twitter with the caption "Every single gay man I know was right about this album".

She does not exactly say how she feels about the album but it's safe to say she stans after crediting alleged gays introducing it to her.

Carly Rae further cementing her cult pop queen status!

ONTD do you know any gays that were right about something?

The security guard tonight, Frankie in Arachnids and Alfonso in Witchfinders.”

Will Poulter Quits Twitter For His Mental Health

Actor Will Poulter (who most recently costarred as Colin Ritman in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch) tweeted earlier today that in "the interest of my mental health I feel the time has come to change my relationship with social media," and that "in light of my recent experiences I am choosing to take a step back, or sorts, from Twitter."

Poulter has done work with a number of anti-bullying charities (which he lists in his tweet), and has long campaigned for anti-bullying education in British schools. He didn't give a specific reason for wanting to leave Twitter, so it's not clear whether he was bullied off the platform, or if the general increased interest in him after Bandersnatch was released last week has just been too much.

"Captain" Daryl Dragon Has Passed Away

* Daryl Dragon, aka the Captain of Captain & Tennille, passed away today at the age of 76 from renal failure.

* He was the keyboardist of the band and married to Toni Tennille until 2014, when she filed for divorce. Her filing had referenced health insurance coverage, however in Toni's memoir she talked about how Daryl was emotionally distant and even subjected her to bizarre dietary restrictions. Toni said she waited nearly 40 years to file for divorce because she "didn't want people to be disappointed". You can read more about that here.

* Captain & Tennille are best known for their songs "Love Will Keep Us Together", "Muskrat Love", and "Do That To Me One More Time".

* In 2010 Toni wrote about Daryl living with a Parkinsonian neurological condition that caused tremors, preventing him from continuing to play music.

* After the divorce, the two remained on good terms and Toni later moved to Arizona to help take care of him.

Amandla Stenberg's interracial Nazi love story movie released online and slammed on social media

Amma Asante's movie about a biracial girl (played by Amandla) with an aryan mother who falls in love with a Nazi boy (played by the guy who was the oldest kid in Captain Fantastic) was released in theaters last year but it flopped. It was released online yesterday. Apparently it's even more tone deaf and ridiculous than you'd expect and it was mocked accordingly.
