Pete Davidson Compares R. Kelly Sexual Abuse Scandal to Catholic Church



Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson stopped by the show's "Weekend Update" to give his R. Kelly take.

"Before I continue, this guy is a monster and he should go to jail forever," Davidson began. "But if you support the Catholic Church, isn't that the same thing a being an R. Kelly fan? I don't see the difference. Only like one's music is significantly better."

The comparison set the stage for the comic to point out certain flaws with "cancel culture."Collapse )

Podcast Drama: Podcast Network Wondery drops “Sword & Scale”



source

Sword & Scale is a controversial but also very successful True Crime podcast.

The host Mike Boudet seems to get off on gore, is anti-women, homophobic, transphobic, calls everyone a psychopath, and just recently outed a rape victim's full name.

Wondery announced that they were done with him after he posted a violent anti-women meme on International Women’s Day. (x)

Mike Boudet is putting the blame on Aaron Mahnke (Lore) and Rabia Chaudry (Undisclosed) (x) (idek)

Debate Theatrical vs. Streaming ft. "Long Shot" cast; ‘Theater Is the Best Place to See Our Comedy"



"US" was not the only film to make a big splash at this year's SXSW in Austin. The cast of Long Shot think that their "more creepy than romantic" comedy fares better in the theater than on streaming.

There's typical guff about 'room full of people shared experience thing' to try and persuade you to spend money on a movie about a loser schlub and beautiful woman (Will they get together??????????? Inquiring minds don't want to know) and the death of the mid-budget movie being financed for theaters.

“I think it’s a good thing we have all different formats … it’s not 20 years ago and there’s only one way you can do it. That freedom has opened up for more interesting filmmakers, and for people to actually see their movies,” said Theron, who produced this, as well as "Tully" and the criminally underrated and awesome "Atomic Blonde".
Rogen doesn't really care about the Awards For Netflix debate because “As someone who never gets nominated for any awards anyway, I don’t give a f— how to deal with that,”, and his returns have been consistent enough so that studios keep giving him money to make nonsense (Though he did not direct this movie)

Do their thoughts entice you to see 'loser and competent woman relationship' for 16$ at the cinema? What was the last non-blockbuster movie you saw at the movies?*

*MCU fans need not respond.

Stars are releasing singles faster than ever. That’s a problem for radio



-Pop radio program directors find that they are being buried under Ariana Grande songs, which seem to be released every Thursday
-They are finding the same issue with Cardi B, who has 3 hit songs right now and a 4th coming ft. Bruno Mars
-The issue here is how can they still play the songs, while spreading them out evenly so that people don't complain?
-They long for an era like when Katy Perry's Teenage Dream album released a single every 3-4 months
-They are wary of "hot person syndrome" - meaning there will be backlash if they constantly play a single artist
-Radio might be forced to take a "streaming music" approach, but 10 percent of tracks account for 99 percent of all streams in 2017

#SXSW Doc Answers the Question of Our Times; "Who Let The Dogs Out?"


New Yorker Ben Sisto (Whose name sounds vaguely familiar so if he's pulled some shit, don't @ me bc I didn't know) has been obsessed with finding out who truly owns the song, made popular by the Baha Men.

  • The Hook dates back to 1959

  • 9 Different peple claim they wrote the song.

  • There are several versions dating from the mid-90s to the one we know that came out in 2000.

  • The titular chant has been dated back to a 1989 Austin High School football team.

  • "Who let the dogs out" has been ID'd as a Trinidadian term.

I really hope someone picks this up and it gets distributed.

Nicki Minaj has taken to Instagram to apologize to her fans for cancelling yet another show on her tour, this time in Bordeaux, France.

She says the arena didn't have enough electricity to power her show, the second time she uses this excuse.

ONTD Original: 3 scenes that got cut from Captain Marvel



As we all know, by the time is film is shot till the final cut is locked in, there are a bunch for scenes that don't make to to screen. We will have to wait till the DVD release to actually see them but for now, here are some details about a few scenes that we know have been cut from Captain Marvel.
[spoilers obviously]
1) Ronan and Yon-Rogg

When Entertainment Weekly revealed the first look photos from the movie back in September, there was a BTS photo of Anna Boden directing Lee Pace (who plays Ronan) and Jude Law (Yong-Rogg) for a scene. That scene did not make it to the final cut, and in the movie we got, Yong-Rogg and Ronan never actually come face-to-face, instead talking to each other hologromams. From this 2nd photo released, which shows Starforce walking by Ronan, this scene takes place as they leave for their first mission in the start of the movie.

2) Yon-Rogg and Supreme Intelligence
In an interview with Collider, Jude Law confirmed that he had a scene with Supreme Intelligence that was cut from the movie. According to a redditor who worked on some of the VFX on the movie, that scene takes place right before Yon-Rogg is sent to find Carol and the Tesseract. Want to know who Yon-Rogg sees as Supreme Intelligence? [Spoiler (click to open)]It's himself.

3) Carol and Supreme Intelligence
According to the same redditor, almost a third of Carol's second interaction with Supreme Intelligence was cut. You might have noticed that the memorable (for me at least) line from the 2nd trailer which SI says to Carol "We made you one of us, so you could live longer, stronger, superior." wasn't actually in the movie. Apparently, the scene as shortened because TPTB felt that it dragged on a bit.

Additionally, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck teased a "really kind of fascinating, bizarre, fun scene that didn't make it into the final film" in an interview.
