Academy's planning a huge Avengers reunion at the Oscars in lieu of a host

The Academy - after weeks of being a fucking mess regarding now-ousted Kevin Hart - is now looking for other ways to generate interest in this year's Oscars. According to THR they're scrambling to get all of the actors who played Marvel's Avengers on screen together, or throughout the show.

So rather than have one host introduce presenters and such, they'll have a rotating line of celebs to do this - cue the Avengers. The Oscars' producers are currently begging stars from the Avengers saga - from Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, etc etc to get on stage - NOT as presenters, but to present the presenters, segments, performances, and more.

No word on if this'll work, but as the Oscars are telecast on ABC (owned by Disney who also owns Marvel and everything else), it's probably some contractual garbage and this may happened. Stay tuned.

Frank Ocean Covers GQ

Frank Ocean is the cover star for February's GQ, and was interviewed by Vegyn and Emmett Cruddas, the co-hosts of his Blonded Radio show, for his spread. He talks about moving to NYC, the songs he chooses to cover, his New Year's resolutions, and a bunch of other stuff.

On making his insta public: "... when you're completely minimal with media, there's a lot of pressure on whatever one thing you're doing, the stakes are higher. Social media helps that, 'cause you're fully in control and can message that how you want."

On his skin care routine: "I feel like men just go to sleep. They may wash their face or they don't even bother—they go to sleep with the day face on. You really need to do a gentle wash and put a night moisturizer on. You can't have the retinol in your creams in the day because it makes you more sun-sensitive, so you wanna throw that on at night."

His vices: Mezcal, and watching too much MSNBC

R. Kelly's attorney fires back at Gaga, says she apologized to help Oscar chances

R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg has responded to Lady Gaga's apology published on Twitter last night, in which the 32-year-old singer says she regrets working with Kelly in 2013 on the provocative 'Do What U Want (With My Body)', after facing immense pressure to apologize for the song and video depicting rape and molestation.

Greenberg accuses Gaga of using the situation to help her Oscar chances by choosing now to publish the apology.

"Mr. Kelly appreciates that she recognized his immense talent and collaborated with him to help her career, but finds it regrettable that she is now exploiting this controversy to try and help her in her effort to win an Oscar."

  • Rumors are now circulating this morning that Kevin is the one who afflicted the shoulder fracture on Wendy, beating her badly when she confronted him about the mistress being pregnant.

  • Wendy has remained silent on social media and with rumors swirling that a divorce is coming, she is going to have to address this sooner or later.


I'm starting to feel really sad for her.

Tim Tebow Is Engaged to Former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters: 'I'm Really Blessed'

On Wednesday evening, Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, 31, proposed to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, 23, at his family’s farm outside of Jacksonville.

  • Walked the property, stopping by a small lake where he had an arbor and bench (engraved with the date the couple first met)
  • Talked "for about five minutes" before he proposed
  • As he put the ring on, he said, “This ring is internally flawless. Just like you."
  • South African singer Matthew Mole stepped out from behind a hay bale and serenaded the couple with The Wedding Song, one of their favorite songs.
  • Tebow had secretly flown Nel-Peters’ family and friends from South Africa to join his parents, siblings and friends for the event
  • The group watched from a distance
  • Had dinner at a Jacksonville club; family and friends made speeches, Nel-Peters’ father encouraged everyone to “make a circle” around the couple to pray.

Back in 2017, Tebow said: "I’m looking, but I just can’t seem to find anyone. I don’t want to be single; I’m ready to settle down and start a family. I want to have kids. I have so many things I want. No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person. I’m just looking for someone who has a good heart. They have to be kind, and they have to care about people who can’t do anything for them in return. They have to really love God. My faith is important to me — it’s the most important thing — and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith.”

Japanese Idol Assaulted by 2 Men Forced to Apologise on Stage for Speaking Out

Follow up to yesterday's post about Yamaguchi Maho of Japanese idol group NGT48, who was assaulted a month ago by two men who broke into her apartment, and spoke up a few days ago about the assault on twitter. Yesterday evening, during a concert with the group, she came out on stage and apologised to the fans for speaking out about the assault and "causing trouble".

The way that she's apologising, by bowing at a full 90 degree angle, is reserved in Japan for apologising for severe misdeeds and injustices. Keep in mind, she was the one who was assaulted.

Collapse )

this is causing a lot of outrage in the jpop community on twitter and it's national news in Japan, but no international outlets have picked up the story yet. the police, the city, and the group management are trying to cover this up. she's lost a ton of weight and is looking absolutely skeletal.

UPDATE: some international media is picking up on the story, daily mail and billboard are reporting it

Future Gives Nonsensical Response About R. Kelly Abuse Allegations

Prime sperm donor and subpar father, Future has weighed in the on the growing spotlight on R. Kelly and allegations that he holds young black girls and women in his properties without them being able to contact their families. Some child’s father was interviewed on Los Angeles’ Power 106 when the host, J Cruz, asks him about the Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly. Nayvadius responds: “Who is that? I thought we had forgot about that?” Ummm… Ciara’s sperm donor worked with Kelly on four separate occasions that OP knows of in 2012 and 2013. Future has a duet and produced three tracks on Kelly’s album Black Panties. It all flopped.

Future thinks too many people are talking about it. Yes, yes deadbeat dad, survivors are finally getting their due and their platform to speak about what they have endured and people are starting to pay attention, but Future thinks it’s too much because Kelly’s streaming numbers have gotten a bump.

“We giving it too much attention, you know what I’m sayin'... When you give things too much attention, they blow up. That’s why he gon’ blow up. That’s why his music gonna do what it did ’cause y’all keep talkin’ about it. Stop talking about it, it’ll go away.” Future thinks this should all be done behind the scenes. Sounds like someone is scared about having to answer about those collaborations.

Look! I know y’all tired, I’m tired, but damn it – until Raggedy Kelly’s world crumbles, ya gotta keep calling out the folks helping to protect his musical legacy.

I was like, 'thank you'" while Martinez added "that was really powerful of her."
