"Once Upon a One More Time," a Britney Spears musical, to open in Chicago


A new jukebox musical is coming to Broadway in Chicago. Featuring 23 Britney Spears tracks, the show follows fairytale princesses like Cinderella and Snow White as they grapple with life's big questions. When the girls gather for a book club, a fairy godmother drops Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique in their midst and changes their futures.

[Bookwriter Jon Hartmere describes the show]Bookwriter Jon Hartmere describes the show: “Cinderella is having an existential crisis, and she has a posse of famous princesses, and her stepmother is the main antagonist, and there’s also Prince Charming and a dwarf we’ve never met — the eighth dwarf — and a narrator who is unhappy his system is being dismantled before his eyes. These women have been in this hermetically sealed world, and then they start to get deeper into modern ideas — second and third-wave feminism — and also explore how stories are passed down to us, and where we get our norms from. But it’s also superfun and funny.”

Britney attended one of the readings and said: “I’m so excited to have a musical with my songs – especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore. This is a dream come true for me!”

Previews begin at the James M. Nederlander Theatre Oct 29, opening night is Nov 13, and the show closes Dec 1. Groups of 10+ can buy tickets now.

Operation Varsity Blues Updates: Lori Loughlin released on a $1 million bond



Actress Lori Loughlin was in federal court earlier today and was arraigned in Los Angeles on conspiracy charges stemming from the elite college entrance fraud scheme. She was released on a $1 million dollar bond and surrendered her passport with travel restrictions. TMZ also reported that Lori’s 19-year-old daughter and influencer Olivia Jade was on Rick Caruso’s (Chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees) yacht in the Bahamas with Caruso’s daughter, Gianna. She and several other friends were spending Spring Break in the Bahamas and both Gianna and Olivia have been friends for sometime.

Caruso says, “My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government's announcement yesterday. Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.” Hewlett Packard (HP) has also cut ties with Lori’s daughter and is expected to lose more endorsement deals.

And finally, the women on The View discussed this topic earlier this morning. Joy Behar and Meghan McCain got into a heated exchange when Behar brought up the “racist” history of “legacy” admissions policies at colleges and universities. McCain began to get defensive about her family name. The video of that full exchange behind the cut.

Footage of a disguised Michael Jackson shopping for rings with a young boy is uncovered


Footage of Michael Jackson in a disguise shopping for rings with a young boy at Zales jewlery store in Simi Valley, California has been uncovered. Star Magazine thought the ring was because Michael was planning to marry back up singer, Sheryl Crow. Michael and Sheryl never dated or got married. The young boy seems to be James Safechuck, who lived in Simi Valley, California. In the Leaving Neverland documentary, James also talked about how he would go ring shopping with Michael and Michael would sometimes wear disguises and they would pretend they were shopping for girls when it was really for James. James also showed rings Michael gave him, including one that was used for a mock wedding ceremony between them.


Here is another news report where someone who worked at Zales talks about how the police were called because Michael seemed very nervous and kept adjusting his mustache and was in a disguise, so they thought he was a robber. The whole time the 12 year old boy was talking for the both of them because Michael didn't want to talk because his voice would be recognized. The police let Michael go when they realized who he was and he gave the security guard at Zales an autograph.

"The Simpsons" Producer Believes Michael Jackson Used Episode To Groom Children




- Al Jean, who is a writer and producer for "The Simpsons", gave an interview for The Daily Beast today and further explained his (and his colleague's) decision to pull the episode "Stark Raving Dad" from circulation. Michael Jackson guest starred in that famous episode.

- Jean says the decision came after he, James L. Brooks, and Matt Groening watched "Leaving Neverland." Although he knows that they will lose money and that "Stark Raving Dad" is one of the milestones of the show, he still feels that pulling the episode was the "only choice to make" and the right decision.

- Feels sad because after watching "Leaving Neverland", he believes that Jackson may have used his cameo in "Stark Raving Dad" as a "tool" for something that the show didn't intend. He says that it might not have been "just a comedy" to Jackson, and that he probably used it to groom boys.

I get what he means, and the episode does seem creepy in retrospect, especially if you've seen Leaving Neverland and are aware of how Jackson groomed his victims.

Kathy Griffin talks about her "Oprah-level" money and her "fuck-you" house

Kathy spoke to "Cut" about her "fuck-you" house that she paid 11 million dollars for (in cash), her private plane, and her Maserati. Oh, and that photoshoot.

Some highlights from the interview

How much of a financial hit did you take when the photo came out? Conservatively, I lost about $2 million. But then the [Laugh Your Head Off] tour grossed $4.4 million. That’s kind of an amazing year. And I’d maybe made $2 million before the tour started. <b> My net worth is $35 million, and I am telling you that openly and proudly to say to these dinosaurs: “I don’t need you.”

A friend of yours once said you are deeply in touch with your money, like “Oprah-level.” What does that mean?

I bought my house for $10.5 million cash outright, because as Suze Orman taught me, if you can’t afford to buy a house in cash, you can’t afford it. Sometimes I just walk around this big house going, “Fuck you, Hollywood, I fucking love this house!”



Tell me about your splurges. I fly private quite a bit. It’s definitely a splurge, and the day I have to stop flying private, I will. I’m the crazy lady who travels with her puppies everywhere.  When I walk into a meeting, I’m not like the dudes who can go in in jeans, hungover from the night before. I go into a meeting and I have full hair and makeup that I paid for, I’m in a designer dress and designer shoes, and

Amy Schumer bonded with Lena Dunham over being called 'worthless' online



In a New York Times profile, Amy Schumer revealed she came to bond with Lena Dunham through the internet vitriol that is frequently directed their way.

“Most people don’t know what it’s like to open social media in the morning and hear you are physically, socially and politically worthless.” Dunham calls it "a very specific experience" that helped the two women grow even closer.

Dunham states Schumer handles the online hate better than she does, "She’s titanium, and part of her skill is the ability to make it look easy."

Initially Schumer reveals the hate took a tool, "I was kind of retreating a bit in general after years of getting beaten down." but fellow comedian Dave Chappelle had to remind her there's still a lot of love for her out there.

Schumer's next project is a Netflix stand-up special titled 'Growing' that premieres March 19th.

ONTD Original: Wholesome Movie Trivia: 1980s Edition

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)



* A couple of the "extras" (construction worker & window washer) during the parade scene were just regular people caught dancing to the music being played. Director John Hughes loved it and had the camera operators catch it.

* Edie McClurg (Grace the secretary) styled her own hair because she felt Grace thought she looked best in the 1960s, and the hairdresser on set couldn't do 60s hair. When John Hughes saw her hairdo he said "How many pencils do you think you can fit in that hair?" (answer: 3)

After Kevin Tsujihara, More Executives Pushed to Cast Actress Charlotte Kirk



The scandal that has engulfed the Warner Bros. CEO intersects with many powerful men and high-profile projects.
Follow up this post

Brett Ratner at one point texted Charlotte Kirk : "U know Avi…. Go bother Avi."
Avi Lerner, the 71-year-old founder and CEO of Millennium Films, knows Kirk. 
He has worked for two-plus years to help the British actress secure roles in movies produced by his company.
A female-fronted version of The Expendables and Chuck, a 2016 boxing drama starring Liev Schreiber.

Lerner's most focused effort was to include Kirk in the upcoming Hellboy.
Producer Lawrence Gordon was pressured by Lerner and influential individuals in Hollywood but refused to cast her.
Hellboy director Neil Marshall was impressed by Kirk. She was his first choice for Alice and pushed hard for her.
Marshall left the Hellboy production to spend time with Kirk.
He left his longtime agent turned producing partner and abandoned other potential projects.
Kirk and Marshall moved in together as he devoted himself to pitching horror films that Kirk would not only star in but co-write.
Marshall approached several top producers about backing these projects, but all passed.

Kirk posted a photo on Instagram of herself and Marshall from a trip to Puerto Rico but has since deleted it.

Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris of the USWNT are Engaged




-“We became really close friends, and we just hung out, we clicked, and we had so much in common,” Harris, 33, says of when the two first met in 2010. “We always sat next to each other on the bus and on flights, and we kind of just talked about our dreams and our hopes and what we wanted to do one day when we grew up. Because at the time, we were kids.”

-Ali says that it was Ashlyn's "creativity and ambition" that drew her in and “I find that so attractive, and the way that she makes me a better person. I think that I’m very quiet and reserved,” she says. “Since being with Ash, I really feel like I’ve blossomed into the woman that I want to be, and she’s helped me become the woman I am.”

-the couple says that they weren't public with the relationship for years because they didn't want the attention on them.

#WeBeenKnew; Only One Annapurna Film in 2018 Turned a Profit


Despite the high-award rolling "Vice", the sweet but sad "If Beale Street" ....... and "Destroyer", it's here too, it will surprise no one to learn that Annapurna didn't have a stellar 2018 when it came to distribution.

In fact, only one of its films made any kind of money, and it wasn't even up for major awards: Boots Riley's "Sorry To Bother You".

Vice cost 68$m to make and lost at LEAST 8$m, though some say it was closer to 20$m, even though it had, by far, the largest release of anything Annapurna has ever distributed. The cost was probably inflated by doctors to keep an eye on Bale.

The Sisters Brothers cost 38m$ to make and made a little over 1$m at the box office.

Beale Street lost between 8$m - 10$m. It only opened in 1018 theaters and its highest ranking was #12!).

Destroyer only lost 7m$, which is miraculous considering its widest release was only 235 theaters.

Chances are Detroit also didn't make a profit but that's 2017.

Why The Mummy (1999) Is A Masterpiece



* an homage to the adventure/horror movies of the 1930s that doesn't take itself too seriously

* the scarabs!

* villain not driven purely by revenge but love for Anck Su Namun. Protagonists are not pure of heart but selfish and arrogant at times.

* though not all the special effects hold up, it does not diminish the storytelling.

* Brendan Fraser brings a "passionate energy" that is missed in today's stars. Not afraid to be vulnerable or look dumb.

* Never has a dull moment and embraces horror element that the other movies in the series abandon.

* just plain fun. Cynical, gritty Dark Universe attempt misses the point.


OP NOTE: The Mummy was released almost 20 years ago, in May of 1999. I was 13 years old and fucking obsessed.

Inspired by THIS post where people speculated among other things that Leighton had had: a nose job, new veneers, fillers and/or a brow lift. Other people, including yours truly, argued that it's been 7 years since GG ended and in that time Leighton has lost her baby cheeks, aged from her mid 20s into her early 30s, changed up her hair and eyebrows, and had a baby.
