John Legend reveals why he eats a salad for breakfast everyday




After an appointment with his doctor, John Legend, 40, had a wake up call and started eating salads for breakfast. “My doctor told me that I needed more antioxidants in my diet because I had hereditary cholesterol issues, and he told me that adding vegetables was a good way to address it, so I started having something green with every meal,” Legend told PEOPLE. “Breakfast, lunch and dinner.”

So what kind of salad? “Leafy with a little vinaigrette. Not much else,” said Legend. The change was a surprise for his wife Chrissy Teigen. “The shock has worn off, but when I started doing it she was like, ‘What are you doing?’” he says while laughing.

'Call Me by Your Name' book sequel called 'Find Me' out this fall




Hi haters and doubters, Andre Aciman wrote the sequel to 'Call Me by Your Name', which is called 'Find Me', and it's set for release this fall, on October 29, 2019. Here's a summary:

The sequel, titled Find Me, will pick up after Elio's father, Samuel, has divorced. He travels from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a respected classical pianist. The book will see Samuel have a "chance encounter" on a train that provokes changes in his life, Elio moving to Paris and having a "consequential affair" and Oliver, now a professor in New England, considering returning to Europe after his sons are grown.

So there you go. There's the title. No word yet on the film's adaptation and production, but that'll be years down the line, with actors Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, and Michael Stuhlbarg returning, and Luca Guadagnino directing.

We all have misinterpreted “the scream” 😱



The scream, painted by Edvard Munch, is one of the most famous art works in the world and even inspired a horror movie franchise. It depicts what appears to be a screaming figure, however this is apparently wrong.

Curators at the British Museum found a lithography of it with a tiny commentary from the author stating that the figure heard an exceptionally loud scream from nature and it is actually covering its ears fearfully.

This finally puts and end to the debate over whether The Scream shows a man screaming or hearing a scream that has raged on for decades

Whew this episode.......

Disney-Fox "merger" could cost up to 4,000 jobs across both companies, many Fox execs already fired




Thanks to Rupert Murdoch being an obsolete asshole, plus Disney's need for omnipresence, we're now left with the super-conglomerate that will truly rule the entertainment industry.

But of course that will come with its (endless) pitfalls. The most short-term will, of course, be layoffs. LOTS of layoffs - as many as 4,000 people will lose their job thanks to the Disney/Fox merger.

So far:
-- FOX has laid off top staff in the SVP, EVP, and president levels, including domestic distribution head Chris Aronson, Heather Phillips, EVP and head of domestic publicity, and Mike Dunn, president of product strategy and consumer business development, and many top marketing positions.
-- FOX TV is now being hit, with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution president Mark Kaner being given the boot (note that he headed the division since 1994, yikes).
-- A list of those in top positions who still have their jobs (mostly at Disney) can be found here: https://variety.com/2019/film/news/disney-leadership-fox-layoffs-1203169772/
-- All positions at Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Animation, Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel remain the same; no one's lost jobs there, to no surprise.
-- The atmosphere at the FOX lot in LA has been akin to a funeral (no surprise), with execs (the ones still with jobs) holed in up their offices, while regular employees fret about their future. Said an exec from another studio:

“We’ve been sitting around my desk, refreshing the articles and waiting for the next head to roll. It’s morbid, but these are our friends.”

Kylie Jenner covers Interview and defends self-made status!


Kylie was interviewed for Interview magazine and defended her self-made billionaire status stating that there is really no other word to use other than self-made because it is the truth. That it is the category that she falls under.

Kylie also adds that she did not get money from her parents past the age of 15. That she used 100 percent of her own money to start the company, that not a dime in her bank account is inherited and that she is very proud of that.

How Hannah B.'s Bachelorette Season Could Be Very Different From The Others

hannah b ontd.jpg

Hannah B. is already filming The Bachelorette after finishing fifth (I think?) on Colton's season. But her season of the show could be very different from any other season. Here's why:

-She's the youngest Bachelorette ever

At age 24, she breaks the record of youngest star ever. The second youngest was Jojo, at age 25.

-She's "a hot mess"

She jokingly referred to herself as "the Hot Mess Express." And the producers even call her a mess, too. ABC's senior vice president says:

"She was refreshing and we felt like this is going to be a different kind of season with her because she's someone who is going to certainly speak her mind, own that, as she says, she's kind of a mess."

-She was the underdog

At the beginning of Colton's season, Caelynn was the frontrunner for Bachelorette. Her drama with Hannah made Hannah seem crazy and made Caelynn seem like an innocent victim. But the tide soon turned, with Caelynn looking manipulative and Hannah looking like she tried to warn Colton.

Also, Caelynn gave some passive-aggressive praise to Hannah on her Bachelorette journey:

"I think she would be a really funny Bachelorette... It will be unpredictable... She's just herself and funny and [quirky] whereas some leads maybe try to be more composed."

Won't it be great if Caelynn goes on Bachelor in Paradise chasing after Hannah's sloppy seconds??

Paramount Cuts Gay Sex Scene from 'Rocketman'


  • Sources say that Parmount is pressuring director Dexter Fletcher to remove a 40 second "tastefully done" butt-baring sex scene from the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman.

  • The scene is between Taron Egerton, who is playing the openly gay singer Elton John, and Richard Madden, who is playing his former lover John Reid.

  • A source says: “Two guys have a naked cuddle to express their love for each other and that will be reduced to a fully dressed warm hello.”

  • The studio is reportedly demanding the cut so it can be rated PG-13 instead of R.

The Cast of 'Veep' Covers EW


  • HBO's political comedy Veep is ending its run this year, and to celebrate, Entertainment Weekly gave the show twelve covers.

  • In summer 2017, showrunner-director David Mandel started plotting out the seventh season, and though most of the cast expected the show would run for eight seasons, he came to the conclusion with Julia-Louis Dreyfus that the show had reached a natural end. “It gets to a point of, ‘Have we already called Jonah ‘Godzilla’s taint?’ ‘

  • Louis-Dreyfus had a biopsy two days before the 2017 Emmys, and was diagnosed with breast cancer the day after. Filming for the last season was put on hold, and the show stayed on hiatus until Louis-Dreyfus was healthy.

  • Louis-Dreyfus calls it the perfect bookend to the series.

Barbra Streisand ‘absolutely’ believes MJ’s victims but says the kids were ‘thrilled' to be there





The not-so-good sis Babs has spoken out in support of Michael Jackson's alleged victims, but blames Robson's and Safechuck's parents for allowing their children to sleep at the singer's home.

But wait! She also went on to say...


‘His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has. ‘You can say “molested”, but those children, as you heard say [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.'

Maho Yamaguchi Opens Up Following Investigation

In January of this year, NGT48 member Maho Yamaguchi (nicknamed Mahohon) came forward with a live stream detailing an assault on her that occurred in December. When management cut the stream, she turned to twitter to air out the pain she had been facing since then. There have not been many developments since the initial outpouring of news due to the all-but-confirmed gag order put on the girls and third party investigation that has taken place. This changed when a press conference of NGT48 and AKS official staff happened, leading to Mahohon revealing more truths on twitter again.

Ryan Reynold's Deadpool the only character not being rebooted within the MCU from Fox


Tell them goodbye.

With Disney recently buying 20th Century Fox, there was discussion amongst all of 2 people if the old cast from X-Men / Fantastic Four would be going over to Marvel.

And the answer is a resounding ha, are you kidding? Of course not!

Most of the MCU is made up of former okay, calm down, don't tell me ya'll forgot that really awkward Captain America movie of the 90s, B listers because Marvel never had the rights to the hard hitters until now; While we won't see X-Men or Fantastic Four in any movie this side of 2021...we probably also won't see Deadpool, but he is the only character not being retooled.

Why? Because the Deadpool movies have been consistently.....at least tolerable and profitable, unlike the X-Men Franchise (varying in quality) and Fantastic Four (consistently very bad).

Iger says that it's possible for an R-Rated Deadpool movie to still exist, under another banner.

Vanessa Hudgens to star in a new Netflix Christmas film that is not “The Princess Switch 2”




Basically what we’re not going to do is make a sequel: Baby V returns to Netflix for another Christmas film and no it won’t be a follow up to 2018’s The Princess Swith. Instead, Vanessa Hudgens will star in and executive produce the upcoming festive & time-traveling flick The Knight Before Christmas. Written by Cara Russell and directed by Monika Mitchell, the film “follows a gallant English knight who seeks out his true quest after a sorceress inadvertently sends him from the medieval era to present day. While there he soon finds himself falling for a caring high school science teacher who is disillusioned by love.” Josh Whitehouse (HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel) will also star in this Hallmark Netflix holiday movie and filming begins next month in Ontario, Canada.
