Ariana Grande responds to criticism about headlining Manchester Pride

Not everybody was thrilled about this, with some suggesting that prices were raised to book her, claiming this was 'exploitation' of the LGBTQ+ community, and that it was inappropriate to have a straight person headline.

Dave Bautista Doesn’t Think The Rock Is A Good Actor


Baitista wants to be treated like a serious actor as opposed to an entertainer.

In a new interview with Tampa Bay Times, Dave explains:

"Do not compare me to The Rock or John Cena. Everyone does it. Those guys are wrestlers who became movie stars. I'm... something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I'm an actor."

"Rock was, in a way, a movie star before he was even a movie star. There is something about him that's really special. I'd never take that away from him. Would I consider him a great actor? F*ck no."

"I want good roles. I don't care about Fast and Furious or Bumblebee... That's not the kind of stardom I want... I want to be in Dune. I want to work with Denis Villeneuve. I want to work with Sam Mendes and Jodie Foster. I want to work with Academy Award winners. I'm proud to be a character actor. I want that respect and credibility and education."

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite -- not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Lindsay Lohan has altercation with employee on Lohan Beach Club


Lindsay Lohan got into it with an employee on her MTV series 'Lohan Beach Club'.

The actress did a surprise walkthrough of her staff's housing, and was so alarmed by the mess she found that she threatened to fire them all. Her staff member, Kailah, wasn't having it, and the two get into an argument which results in Lohan firing her on the spot.

As Kailah leaves, she throws one final dig at Lindsay, telling her to go "do all the drugs you do".



Demi Lovato's friends are concerned about the singer

Demi Lovato's friends are reportedly worried after the troubled singer has began isolating everyone in her life and firing her team members.

A source close to Demi says she "fired everyone around her" and "got rid of friends" in a drastic measure to save herself and maintain sobriety.

But her relationship with designer Henri Levy is giving them more cause for concern, "It just has shown everyone that she simply can’t be alone. It’s like she doesn’t know how.”

The rehabbed star is now living in an apartment in the San Fernando Valley after putting the home she overdosed in up for sale.

Reese Witherspoon shames her co-stars for always leaving her to pick up the bill at restaurants

While promoting the upcoming second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies, Reese Witherspoon called out her co-stars for always leaving her to pick up the tab at restaurants when eating out.

“Who pays? I pay,” joked Witherspoon. “None of these girls ever pull out their credit card!” Nicole Kidman then interjects and says that it is not true. Reese then admits, “Okay, Meryl paid once.”

The conversation then continues when the rest of the cast chime in:
Nicole Kidman: I pay! I pay!
Zoë Kravitz: They won’t let us pay! I’ve tried! We’ve tried, Shailene!
Nicole Kidman: You try, and we always pay. And, we’re producers, we should be.
Reese Witherspoon: The Amex bills really tells the truth.
Shailene Woodley: Don’t even get me started on this. This is very upsetting to me.

Season 2 of Big Little Lies begins in June on HBO.

ONTD, how do you settle the restaurant bill when eating out with your friends?

“I’m going say something and I think I’m gonna be in trouble but I’m gonna do it. It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there’s a scene…someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film…in a scene. The next day I was pulling blood out of my eyeballs.”

ONTD Original: 2002, A year of one hit wonders


Just 17 years ago, artists like Las Ketchup, DJ Sammy and Tweet were topping the charts. Many of the artists who created their major 2002 hits were never able to replicate the international success. However, their songs remain playable and always take us back in time. Let's take a look at some of the best one hit wonders of 2002!


R&B singer Truth Hurts shook the radio with her single, "Truth Hurts." The song was her only one to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at no. 9, and selling over 600,000 copies in the US. It was also a top five hit in UK, France and Switzerland, and went gold in several countries. The song samples a Hindi song, which eventually brought on a $500 million lawsuit.

Gaga's Ex (Two Exes Ago) Apologizes for Liking Shady Comment

Yesterday, Gaga's bf during the ARTPOP era liked a comment on IG saying how he was able to get away from Gaga, and witnessed the flood of monsters to the point where he apologized accordingly saying it was an 'accident', and that he is "only proud and happy for Stef." He's actually been consistent with his support for the Oscar winner - when last year he also said he was proud and wanted A Star is Born to do well.

Maybe we should invent a browsing-only mode to avoid accidentally liking shady things while scrolling Instagram?

Gemma Chan & Freida Pinto To Star In ‘Mr. Malcolm’s List’

"Doesn't that sound familiar?" Yes, as it was a short film by the same name that came out earlier this month, a story about an extremely picky man when it comes to marriage, until one woman decides to give it the old college try.

The short involves Chan's character dating this man, not knowing about his list of demands for a wife. No word in how much the story will change for the full-length feature.

The period-drama-romantic-comedy will be directed by Emma Holly Jones and will cast color conciously (AKA: less whites), and that starts with having Gemma and Freida reprise their roles in the full-length film.

In the story, Yang has been programmed to help his little sister learn about her cultural heritage.

Rome Flynn says get ready for a "big twist" in the #HTGAWM season 5 finale tonight

Flynn (Gabriel) says about the finale: “The end of the finale is going to really shake stuff up. You never know what to expect.”

Since it hasn't been renewed for a 6th season yet, Flynn admits things won't be wrapped up in the finale: “It won’t be tied up at all, I don’t think so at all if it ended with this last episode. You’d be left with more questions, I feel like. I’m hopeful that we come back for season 6. I think they’ve done well with the writing and going back to the roots of How to Get Away with Murder before I was there. As a fan of the show myself, when I watched I really liked the courtroom scenes and the classroom scenes. They kind of went back to that sort of formula, and I think that it resulted in people just being crazy about it again.”

Hollywood Medium Tyler Henry defends himself and his celebrity readings after John Oliver calls him

On the latest episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver slammed celebrity mediums and specifically called out Hollywood Medium star Tyler Henry. The host talked about methods psychics often used to convince others they’re communicating with the afterlife such as a “hot reading” or a “cold reading,” which basically means prior knowledge of somebody versus generalized guessing. Oliver also argued that popular shows like this contribute to an industry that exploits the vulnerable for profit.

When asked about those comments during an interview with Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy on E! News, Tyler Henry responded saying, “It’s actually really why I never want to know where I’m going or who I’m reading and why I put such an emphasis on information that can’t be Googled. In reading celebrities, public figures, there lives are on Google! So, obviously, there’s information about them.”

The Hollywood Medium star also adds that clients “aren’t tearing up” about “generic information.” They’re “tearing up and crying because they’re hearing information that’s emotional, that’s validating something to them, that they’ve not heard elsewhere.” So what do you think? Do you believe in communication with the afterlife through a medium? Or is it all just a scam?

    Glenn Close eyeing Oscar nom. 8 as she'll star in 'Sunset Boulevard' musical film

    Glenn Close will be reprising her Tony-winning role in an upcoming film adaptation of the 'Sunset Boulevard' musical, and now it's been confirmed that it'll be directed by Tony-winning choreographer Rob Ashford.

    Andrew Lloyd Webber scored the stage musical, and will be one of the producers of the film. No start of production date yet, but it will be the same as the classic 1950 movie starring Gloria Swanson (but, you know, with music and dancing).

    A quick summary: Norma Desmond, a faded and deluded silent-screen star ensnares a down-on-his-luck screenwriter into her fantasy of making a comeback. A byzantine love story ensues that ends, ultimately, in tragedy.
