Eliza Dushku: Going Back To School, Social Media, #MeToo, and the Political Climate

Human Goddess Eliza Dushku sat down with Boston Magazine and talked about studying holistic psychology in school, leaving L.A, dealing with social media after speaking about her sobriety and opioid awareness in 2017, Hollywood's current climate (#MeToo), and taking action.

- Produced Mapplethorpe - a provocative biopic of controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
- Moved from L.A to Boston for 'personal reasons'. Says living there for 18 years was an "honest effort".

On addressing Mapplethorpe's nude and homoerotic imagery in today's political climate:
It’s entirely relevant right now, and maybe more so than ever, given what we’re facing with the current administration and this sort of cultural divide our country is wrestling with. I think it’s horrifying to a lot of people because we came so far and now it feels like we’re going backward. And that’s alarming, especially to so many artists and members of the LGBTQ community. And so now more than ever, we have to fight. We have to fight for the freedom of the press. We have to fight for freedom of expression and art.

On Hollywood after #MeToo:
You know, for many women, and men as well, it’s been an important year of reckoning. It’s liberating, and it shows that when we speak our truths—as terrifying as that might be—we afford ourselves a chance to heal. And we’re seeing that we also get a chance to create change for others, which for me is powerful and really important.

On social media after her talk at the New Hampshire Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness in 2017:
Yeah, it can cause a bit of a panic attack. And to be honest, in the past couple of years, I’ve been on social media so much less because of that. I remember a therapist once saying to me that reading your reviews and what people say about you on Twitter is like putting a loaded gun to your head. And it’s just human nature that a thousand people could say you’re great and there’s one person that just drills into you, and that’s all you can focus on. And today with the trolls and the fake bots, it’s just too much.


It's a pretty good interview and a fairly quick read. She's well-spoken, I recommend reading it tbh

In-N-Out Burger sues PUMA over drive-thru-themed sneaker

The SoCal-based burger chain In-N-Out is suing popular shoe and clothing brand PUMA for allegedly ripping off its logo and colors with their new Cali-0 Drive Thru sneakers. Released in February as a collaboration with streetwear designer Mike Cherman, the burger chain filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Puma North America, Inc and Cherman just last week.

“By using In-N-Out’s designs and trade dress, Puma and Cherman intentionally confused consumers for their own benefit and have also created the impression that our marks and unique trade dress are available for public use. We will always vigorously defend our trademarks and the distinctive elements that represent our brand to our Customers.”

PUMA has since removed the shoes off of their website.

Love After Lockup Discussion Post - "Prison Blues to Wedding Bells"

I can't believe we made it (we made it!) to the season finale after Love After Lockup. We get a 90 minute episode - the least we deserve after the producers have been fucking with us for two damn months! Let's see what happens in this peak gutter trash of a television. Sad Sack Scott tells Lizzie and Lizzie's bubbies that he's broke and pissed off after finding out she charged $2000 worth of clothes on his credit card. Lizzie says that it's only money (gorl no!) and point blank tells the Sad Sack "If you have no money, I don't need you." She didn't even finesse it y'all. Fast forward, Sad Sack gets a new girlfriend and Lizzie gets a job - even I didn't see the job part coming.

Mods, none of these tweets or instagram posts were included in the first celebrities react to "Leaving Neverland" post. When you're on the same side as Piers Morgan and writing "Piers Morgan is a real one", you've already lost... @T.I. @Justin Bieber @ Rita Ora. Also Peter Andre still being bitter about losing the dancing contest to Wade Robson and not getting to meet Michael Jackson is a mess.

MARINA - 'Love + Fear' [Album Trailer]

MARINA aka Marina and the Diamonds is ready to release her new album Love + Fear on April 26 and now we have a trailer for it. So far we've heard 'Baby', 'Handmade Heaven' and 'Superstar' - you can listen to those songs behind the cut. I also added a very interesting interview with Marina in which she talks about the power of pop, tackling female shame and the politics behind her new album. It's a very sweet and honest interview, and my heart kind of broke when she started crying discussing such topics as racism, homophobia and female experience 😢
