Ariana Grande asks life’s most important question: “What kind of soup would you be?”




Today in why is this news? Ariana Grande posted a series of very important tweets about soup. During a discussion with her friends and family, she tweets, “guys we’re at dinner discussing what soups we’d be if we were soups and everyone knows what soup they’d be immediately and each answer is so different and specific so now i ask u.... if u were a soup .... with which soup do u identify ?”

Grande herself identifies as “either butternut squash or miso,” while her mom “cream of mushroom w a cognac.” They even ask their waitress this burning question. Her reply before Ari could even finish the question? “tempura udon.” Wow. I can sleep well tonight knowing all of this, and now you can too. You’re welcome.

Twitter might add a “clarification” tool to help add context to past and offensive Tweets



The new feature is perhaps inspired by Kevin Hart and his past homophobic tweets that recently resurfaced, costing him his hosting duties at the Oscars this year.

For years people have been begging Twitter for an edit button to correct old tweets and typos, but instead you might get a “clarification” button. The company’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, made the announcement during Goldman and Sach’s Internet and Technology conference in San Francisco this past Thursday.

A “clarification” tool is inspired by “cancel culture,” explained Dorsey to the attendees at the conference. “The other thing that we’re seeing more broadly within the culture right now in this particular moment is people quote-unquote ‘being canceled’ because of past things that they’ve said on Twitter or various other places in social media,” he explains.

Dorsey describes the option as a “retweet with comment,” which would give users the chance to “add some context and some color on what they might have tweeted, or what they might have meant.” Uh, okay.

The CEO says that the clarification wouldn’t be able to be removed, so people couldn't quote-tweet the original and potentially misrepresent it out of context. This is all part of the company’s mission to “help” people be less guarded online, since they believe people are holding back to avoid the risk of public shaming.

Emma Stone on turning 30 & Lessons she's Learned



Emma recently turned 30 she tells British Vogue “I got gloomy for about a week,”

“But realised the most interesting part about becoming an adult is most things become bittersweet. I’m still finding my voice.”

She explains “It’s OK if not everybody likes you,”

“So that was a major lesson, not falling over myself to win over the unwinnable.” What else? “Nobody knows what they’re doing! We’re all just a bunch of people trying to figure out how to get through the day.”

She talks about not having worked since last year,

"I haven’t worked since last December – by the time I work again, it will have been 14 months.” "What have I been doing?" "Fuck, I do not know, I didn’t learn a language, I didn’t learn to cook, I’ve been a little… drifty.”

The Beatific Imperfection of Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, 20 Years Later & Will Smith turned down Neo



-Keanu Reeves is an outlier in the action genre, he's not like Tom Cruise (deft defying stunts) or Will Smith (jokey charisma) or the muscled glossy men of the MCU.
-In the wake of Neo, more unconventional action leads took place. (Tobey Maguire in Spiderman, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, James McAvoy in Wanted, Michael Cera SPVTW, Matt Damon Bourne, Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux, and Kate Beckinsale in Underworld)
-The Matrix FX showed that any star can be a viable action star.His masculinity in the film is vulnerable and fluid in his movements and actions.
-"Reeves has British, Chinese, and Native Hawaiian ancestry, and his love of Hong Kong action flicks echoes in later works, like his directorial debut The Man of Tai Chi and the John Wick franchise."
-The Wachowskis believe that humanity can be saved through love which is refreshing tbh.
-"Reeves has proven over the roughly 30 years of his acting career to be an essentially generous and curious performer with a near-beatific ability to be utterly present."
-"As we watch him rebound from navigating a maze of cubicles with only the voice of a stranger as his guide to joyfully showcasing Yuen Woo-ping’s ecstatic fight choreography, we feel not only the wonder of this world the Wachowskis have created, but the joy of witnessing a star go supernova."

Matt Smith Defends Being A Straight Man Playing A Gay Role In ‘Mapplethorpe’ Biopic



The issue of straight actors portraying gay characters continues to be controversial in Hollywood.
Matt Smith will soon be seen onscreen as photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the biopic “Mapplethorpe”.

He defended an actor’s right to play characters of any sexuality.
“I think your sexual orientation, or your sex and your choices outside of work, shouldn’t influence — in either way, positive or negative — what happens. So, to me, it doesn’t matter if you’re gay or straight. That has no bearing on whether you should get the part. Where does it stop? Like, do we then say, do we apply that logic to going, ‘OK, I’ve got a part, and it’s playing a brother, and he’s addicted to heroin.’ Do we then go to people that have only taken heroin?”

Eliza Dushku said :
“It’s an important discussion. It’s good that it’s being had.”

Jussie Smollett Maintains He Is Victim of Hate Crime; Celebs Weigh In



Jussie Smollett's lawyers have released a statement:

"As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.

One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video. It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity."


It is being reported that the two men have told police they were paid $3,500 each by Smollett to help him stage the attack, which they rehearsed days before.

A number of celebrities have tweeted about the reports that police believe the attack is a hoax perpetrated by Smollett:
