Taron Egerton: "I always felt more at home in a gay club"



- Not-gay Taron Egerton has said that "He's felt more at home in a gay club than at a football match, far more at home.”" trying to prove he's...an ally?... or something?
- Taron recently clarified that he's not gay, yet he's still taking gay roles from gay actors. He'll play Elton John in 'Rocketman', and he played Tom Hardy's love interest in 'Legends'.
- Taron kept digging his grave with: “I’ve approached it wholeheartedly and I hope that for that reason people accept me [as Elton]. The LGBTQ community has always been about inclusiveness, hasn’t it? Not about ‘We’re here. You’re there.’ In fact, if you want to come in, come on in.”

Disgraced Theranos "Founder" Elizabeth Holmes out in San Francisco, Gets Confronted by Reporter



Because OP cannot get enough of all things Theranos (and you can't either), she is posting this nonfactor of a video. Elizabeth Holmes, whose next federal court date is April 22 is using her free time to hang out with her trust fund fiancé and walk her wolf, Balto. She has exchanged her turtlenecks for a more laid back, I-just-left-private-spin-class-that's-paid-with-investors'-money look. You can walk, but you can't hide Miss Holmes, Inside Edition reporter Lisa Guerrero spotted Elizabeth in the park and asked her about her future and whether she regrets going to Burning Man. Elizabeth doesn't answer, but her neighbors say she's still dropping that Barry White voice.

Holmes is currently facing federal fraud charges and faces up to 20 years in prison.

In the longer discussion, the co-hosts discuss the situation at the border and where all the children who were separated from their families will end up.

Halsey Reveals She Contemplated Sex Work as a Homeless Teenager



Halsey once considered sex work in order to make ends meet when she was a teenager going through homelessness in New York.

"When I was living in New York, I was a teenager. My friends were picking out decorations for their dorms, and I was debating on whether or not I should let a stranger inside of me so I could pay for my next meal,"

"It wasn't because I did something bad. It wasn't because something was wrong with me, and it wasn't because my parents didn't love me—because they did very much.But a series of unfortunate circumstances led me to be in that position, and it can happen to absolutely anyone."

Justin Bieber tells Shawn Mendes he can’t take the “Prince of Pop” title from him on Instagram


Former Pop singer turned Christian singer Justin Bieber left a comment on Shawn Mendez’s post for his latest magazine cover declaring him “Prince of Pop.” The Biebs had a problem with the title he feels actually belongs to him by writing, “Hmm gonna have to break a few more records to dethrone my title there bud (Canadian voice)..But if you want, we can play hockey for it, but I heard your [sic] a real bender on the ice we could just drop the buckets and tilt for it.”

Mendes replied with, “LOL any time any day you just let me know!!!!!!” Meanwhile Biebs had to calm some fans down by explaining that he was joking. “There is no competition and it was a playful joke, people, relax...there’s no sides we’re all just here to make dope music. I’m just competitive, as is he, so it was just a little playful jargon.”

Shawn Mendes Interview With The Observer




The 20 year old has a spread for The Observer and OP took note of the relevant information. If you just want pictures, there are plenty at source.

Was his underwear stuffed for those CK photos?

“No,” he says, eyebrow raised. “They’re really good underwear.”

What does he think of the pop star element?

“The more open the world is getting, the more people are craving real,” he says. “I don’t think people want to see a made-up person. [In the past] there’s been a lot of dressing up, and I still think that stuff is amazing – like I’ll wear a sleeveless top – but at the end of it, when it comes down to you, I think it’s about being authentic.”

Does he still smoke weed?

He says he hasn’t smoked in three months.

What does he think about those rumours about his sexuality?

“For me it’s hurtful,” he says. “I get mad when people assume things about me because I imagine the people who don’t have the support system I have and how that must affect them.” He sighs and says: “That was why I was so angry, and you can see I still get riled up, because I don’t think people understand that when you come at me about something that’s stupid you hurt so many other people. They might not be speaking, but they’re listening.”

Yee Haw!:Kacey calls her music the 'gateway drug' for people who don't like country




"I'm the "gateway drug" for prospective country music fans", claims Kacey Musgraves. Kacey who was discovered on a country singing competition went on to win Album of the Year for "Golden Hour," at the Grammy's.

Kacey adds:"And these days with the genre lines being so blurred, I mean the possibilities are endless. To me music falls into two different categories. It's good and bad. But yeah, I don't believe that you have to pick a lane or stay in a lane.", which is true due to the birth of country trap.

Kacey has a tongue and cheek appeal of her image. She is proud of coming the boondocks which she refers to as the sticks. She is reminiscent of country legend Dolly Parton and some might say she's the country Katy Perry.

Celebrity preachers under fire after viral Instagram exposes pricey clothing choices




· An Instagram account called @preachersnsneakers is going viral after posting photos of celebrity pastors wearing expensive designer clothing. The account, run by a man named Tyler who describes himself as a Christian, posts photos of famous pastors (including Chris Pratt's pastor Chad Veach, as well as OWN reality star John Gray) wearing designer designer clothes and includes a screenshot of what those clothes cost. Some pastors have been photographed wearing designer sneakers costing more than $5,000
· Defenders justify the expensive clothing by saying they were gifts, that some pastors make all their money from book deals, that everyone living in the US is privileged by global standards and thus all of our spending choices are frivolous, or pastors must show off how much money they're making in order to attract a flock (OP's personal favorite argument). Others say there's no way to verify the accuracy of the prices

The Creator of Viral "Lonely Planet" Comics Is Revealed To Be Anti-Abortion

no title

Those cute alien comics you've probably seen on Instagram or Facebook by now, created by former BuzzFeeder Nathan Pyle, might be a little less sharable now that the cat's out of the pyle of shit.

After a tweet by a web sleuth went viral exposing Nathan Pyle to be super anti-choice, he is losing followers faster than you can say "It's what she deserves".

oh yikes, the cute alien comics dude is anti abortion https://t.co/1YcuW2DmmQ— ⚑⚧ Anarcho-Pavlovist ⚧⚑ (@anarchopupgirl) April 8, 2019 ">https://

Nylon published a piece following up the revelation, noting that Pyle's personal account has "I follow Jesus" as his first line, which should make it of little surprise to find out that he might not be down with women having full autonomy over their reproductive systems. They also make a strong note about being more self-educated in who the creators of the content we share are and what they stand for.

Pyle has not yet tweeted out a weak justification about his freedom to have shitty beliefs and his intent never having been to offend anyone but rather to stand up for what Jesus Christ told him about abortions in their last kiki sesh.

The track is a remixed version of Kehlani’s “Nunya” is about one of August’s past relationships and some listeners are convinced the woman in question is married Jada Pinkett Smith.

In the video, the New Orleans singer is having a text conversation with a woman named 'Koren', which fans have pointed out is Jada Pinkett Smith's middle name. . At a point in the video, he sings the line "You're just an actress putting on a show," and a GIF of Jada Pinkett appears on the screen

It also appears that neither of them follow each other on social media anymore. Alsina and Pinkett Smith appeared to be very tight over the last several months, in fact he seemed to have a tight relationship with the entire Smith family. They actually met through her son Jaden at one of his concerts—and a relationship blossomed from there.

Many Alsina fans believe that the pair may have had a fling during her marriage to Will Smith.

The Terrifying Books That Scared These 15 Thriller, Horror, And True Crime Authors



'The Hunger' author Alma Katsu recommends 'The Little Stranger' by Sarah Waters



About: One postwar summer in his home of rural Warwickshire, Dr. Faraday, the son of a maid who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country physician, is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once impressive and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, the clock in its stable yard permanently fixed at twenty to nine. Its owners—mother, son, and daughter—are struggling to keep pace with a changing society, as well as with conflicts of their own. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr. Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become intimately entwined with his.
