Ariana Grande is having a meltdown over people calling her out again

Ariana Grande randomly decided to log into Twitter and respond to tweets criticizing her for recently having dinner and drinks with misogynist Piers Morgan. Ariana says her intentions were good, and that she saw an opportunity to talk some sense into the 53 year old man.

"Crazy Rich Asians" Director: #StarringJohnCho movement inspired me to make the film

In a new Kore Am media interview, perfect sexy daddy John Cho (rocking? high-waters) and director Jon M. Chu discussed the romcom phenome-nom "Crazy Rich Asians" (highest-grossing romcom in a decade!) and how it came to be. This basically consisted of Chu fanboying hard over the Choverlord, as is natural and right.

In similarly sexy news, "Crazy Rich Asians" screenwriter Adele Lim revealed that she purposefully wrote in many, many shirtless scenes with the film's hot men to fight the implicit Western understanding, and explicit Western imagery, that Asian men are neutered and sexless. She fights for us all.

NYT Criticizes the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, Gets Uninvited

  • The New York Times published an article yesterday about the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party, suggesting that the Oscars afterparty that was once the hottest ticket in town is now past its prime.

  • The Times laid out a number of possible reasons for this, among them a heavy corporate presence, bloated guest lists, VF editor Graydon Carter's retirement, an abundance of photographs, more exclusive parties held by others (like Madonna and Beyoncé), and the lack of an appropriately sized venue with the right atmosphere.

  • The Times tweeted today that they've been dis-invited from covering this year's afterparty.


Is Vanity Fair being petty? What afterparty do you want to crash?

STX Punches For Guy Ritchie Crime-Comedy ‘Bush’

Cinematic Criminal Guy Ritchie is going back to his roots after "Aladdin" releases in May of this year.

No, it is not A sequel to Man From Uncle, yes I know you want it despite the constant foot in mouth syndrome of Superman and Arm and Hammer.

Toff Guys - now renamed Bush (No relation to Vice, though the name change will surely get unknowing old people in the theaters) - has been bought by STX (The Happytime Murders, Uglydolls, Mile 22, Second Act).

Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Matthew McConaughey and Michelle Dockery star.

The film follows a very British drug lord who tries to sell off his highly profitable marijuana empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.

Bush is likely to come out later this year.


Guy Ritchie make a Rocknrolla Sequel Challenge. "Back to his roots" - bah!

Michael Jackson Estate Sues HBO for Non-Disparagement Contract Breach

· On Thursday, Michael Jackson's estate filed a lawsuit against HBO, claiming that by airing the documentary Leaving Neverland the channel is violating a non-disparagement agreement which was part of the contract HBO signed ahead of airing Michael's 1992 concert documentary, Michael Jackson in Concert in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour
· The estate is seeking public arbitration and claims they could be awarded $100mn if the network is found to be in violation of the clause. Estate attorney Howard Weitzman argues that HBO & the film's director Dan Reed ignored evidence that Wade Robson & James Safechuck are lying for financial reasons and that the documentary isn't objective
· HBO once again refused to change their plans, saying they will still air the 4-hour, 2-part documentary on March 3rd & 4th

Time’s Up CEO Lisa Borders Resigned After Son Accused of Sexual Assault

Lisa Borders, the CEO of Time’s Up, abruptly resigned her post, her son was accused of sexual assault.
She had been in the job just over three months.
Her responses in defending her son made her position untenable.
The abrupt resignation is a distinct embarrassment to the group, which did not initially disclose the sexual misconduct tie to Borders. 

Her son, Dijon Borders, 36, has a lifestyle and healing business where he offers services ranging from photography and inspirational podcasting to sessions where he pleasures women.
A woman who apparently went through one such session, said in a private Facebook group and in a Pintaram post that she had been sexually assaulted by Bowden.
She warned women to stay away from Bowden. She filed a police report.

Ryan Murphy Announces Another Show. This Time About... Hollywood Again

Problematic, yet beloved by so many showrunner Ryan Murphy announced minutes ago that he's making another show for Netflix, saying “Hollywood” — my new Netflix show co-created with Ian Brennan — begins principal photography this summer. A love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown, this straight-to-series production will be my third show for Netflix and I couldn’t be more excited or proud about the work we are doing together. More to come… Since it involves Hollywoat, the critics and people will probably love it. Golden Globes will be all over it. Unfortunately since it seems to be about the Golden Age, it'll most likely be white as hell. But what else is new, right?


Are you ready for another Ryan Murphy extravaganza, ONTD?

Slipknot frontman says that Imagine Dragons is worse than Nickelback

During his guest appearance on Jonesy's Jukebox, a radio show hosted by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Corey Taylor of Slipknot stated, "[Nickelback] are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons. And I love it. They’re awful, so that’s cool." He later stated, "And they’re from Vegas so I’m gonna go home to protests. Can’t show my face in this town now. People are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire towards Imagine Dragons."

Taylor and Chad Kroeger from Nickelback have exchanged from harsh words over the years, beginning when Taylor said Kroeger looked like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. In 2017, Kroeger reignited the feud by calling Slipknot a gimmick.

SVU Promo for 2x17: We're Two Thirds of the Way Through this Season!

In the next SVU episode, airing March 14th, to quote a wholly nonchalant Fin, we get "a kid skull." So that's something to look forward to, when this break is over. Right?


ONTD, did you watch last night's episode? Did you think it was kinda good? Did you love seeing a literal OG like Dean Winters again, and did you enjoy his compelling (imo) performance? Did you think there was way too much Stone, as always? Were you surprised Benson made it all about her, but were you even more surprised to see Mariska Hargitay giving us some good acting? Did you blink and miss Carisi, but do you also share his "ew babies" paternal instinct, especially during flu season? Lastly, I'm sorry I still haven't replied to some of the comments in last week's post but omg work has been killing me! I didn't even have time to come up with a joke for this post! I am ashamed of myself for both of those things, but maybe I'll have time to reply before this post gets approved (no time for jokes though). Also, I love you!

John Legend Lip Synchs To Karaoke Versions of His Song

He was on Jimmy Fallon this week and did a skit with Jimmy where he lip synched to karaoke versions of his songs.
The karaoke was recorded the night before in a bar, at 1 AM, in New York by a bunch of random people.

While most of them sucked, at 2:28 one guy shows up with a good voice and even John acknowledges it.

John is a coach on The Voice this season.
