Doom Patrol star Diane Guerrero on what it's like playing a character with 64 personalities https://t.co/S56iGQzA7B— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) April 12, 2019
Doom Patrol is a very special series (LEGITIMATELY) that combines absurdity with a lot of pathos. Trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety — all of these serious issues are central to the series and the main characters, a team of superpowered misfits just trying to make it through each day alive. In a lot of ways, they try to help each other heal and recover from their unique traumatic histories that make them who they are and gave them their superpowers. But UNLIKE Titans, the only other new live action content on DC Universe, there is A LOT of humor and comedy too — something Titans could desperately use in season 2, to be honest! It’s not super Dark with a capital D all the time.
Diane Guerrero was given perhaps the hardest role as Crazy Jane, a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder and PTSD who has 64 distinct personalities — some of which have superpowers, though some don’t have any powers at all. Jane is the current “primary” — the personality “in charge” for want of better words. In this interview, she talks about working with her acting coach to develop different physicality to help her better transform as she shifts into each personality. She talks to Entertainment Weekly about how she keeps track of each personality over the course of shooting:
“I have a notebook, and I have basically every personality there. Whenever one pops up in the script, I can reference my notes, and I reference music. I like to think I have a lot of sides to myself that I can easily access at any given moment, like if I feel threatened or if I want something to go a certain way.”

Honestly, I’m just making this post b/c I have decided to stan and also need to discuss the last two eps (I just caught up)
"I remember having the conversation with my label about putting I Love It and Boom Clap on this album, having them be the lead singles and I said no no no. (...) if I’d put those songs on this album things might have been so different for me now," Charli XCX shares in a heartfelt Instagram post.
A throwback to all of the music videos during Charli's True Romance era:

"Special" is full of special moments, little exchanges and relationships that would feel like important breakout points of conversation on a bulkier, slower show, writes @kvanaren https://t.co/j9hZrsj4g5— Vulture (@vulture) April 13, 2019

Ellen Mispronounced Comedian Hasan Minhaj’s Name, So He Pointed Out Name Double-Standards https://t.co/73qQcKF8Gw— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) April 13, 2019
Hasan Minhaj, host of Netflix show “patriot act”, attended the Ellen show earlier this week.
During this visit, the hostess mispronounced his name, prompting him to say "people always mispronounce it”.
The comic took this opportunity to correct the pronunciation of his name. "I'm so sorry I can't pronounce it. Meet my son, Higsby Witherthrottle III!" he joked. Adding, "if you can pronounce Ansel Elgort, you can pronounce Hasan Minhaj."
Do people mispronounce your non English name, ONTD? Does the Starbucks barista always misspell your name when ordering?
Aaron Carter talked to TMZ. After a fake Wade Robson twitter account run by someone from Italy tweeted Aaron Carter, Aaron went on a rant to TMZ about how he wanted to punch Wade Robson. Aaron said that Wade must be lying because Wade previously defended Michael and Aaron can't see Michael doing those horrible things since his own experience with Michael was nothing but loving, caring, and innocent. Aaron also said that he slept in the same room as Michael when he was 15, nothing happened, and if it did he would have told the truth because kids blab about everything.
Aaron has now softened his position on Leaving Neverland. He said that he was too aggressive because everyone has their own stories and he wasn't a fly on the wall, so he can't know what actually happened. Aaron says that he actually has his own experience with Michael and will talk about in a book he is writing about his own life. When asked if it includes abuse, Aaron says that you will just have to find out. Aaron says that he will always have Michael's back though even if it's unflattering. Aaron says his own family knows what it is and just never talks about it, but the Jackson family/estate doesn't know. Aaron says he's not worried if it's negative because "do I ever seem worried about what I say and I keep it real as fuck." Aaron's message to the Jackson estate is that "Just stay strong. I love you guys. And even if I say something you guys don't like it's still my truth and you guys will just have to accept it."

Well, it’d be a short and slightly boring post if we did that. Let’s give celebrity peasants of Coachella some shine I guess. Baby V is generous and can share the cultural appropriation limelight.

Beverly Cleary is 103 today. Her Ramona Quimby books gave us one of the most beloved heroines in American kid lit: a sharp, curious, unstoppable ball of energy. https://t.co/lVxCIWJBst— Vox (@voxdotcom) April 12, 2019
* children's librarian Beverly Cleary had trouble finding books with characters her young patrons would relate to. ("Where are the books about kids like us?") To correct this she wrote her first book Henry Huggins which was published in 1950 and included Henry's friends Beezus and her little sister Ramona.
* Ramona would go on to star in her own series of books.
* Cleary's books were meant to be the antidote for the sappy children's books of the 1950s.
* Ramona part of other "unruly, disruptive, tomboyish heroines of kid lit" like Laura Ingalls, Harriet the Spy, and Jo March.
* Ramona lives in a cozy house on Klickitat Street with parents and a sister who love her. But her parents financial problems are a dark and realistic streak through the series.
* however the "bliss" of the Ramona series is "a safe and happy space, and a little girl running wild within it. It’s what makes the books such uncontested classics."

ONTD, are you a Ramona fan? What's your favorite in the series? I'm partial to Ramona Forever.

The renaissance of the word “wholesome” – and the unstoppably virality of wholesome content online – could all be a reaction to the cynicism of our political state. https://t.co/GEWyqfGABg— Vox (@voxdotcom) April 13, 2019
* opens talking about this Honey Maid commercial from 2014 and how it seemed to help usher in new connotations for "wholesome".
* wholesome used to mean "sexual chastity" but now means "valuing kindness" and "not judging simple pleasures".
* discusses "aspirational wholesomeness", our changing language, and how we embrace sincerity in "the face of the rise of the alt-right."
* in the last 90s/early 2000s wholesome felt "stale".
* "The idea of wholesomeness as friendliness and warmth and support" gained even more traction after the rise of the alt-right.
* does not discuss the popularity of shows like Queer Eye or The Great British Bake Off but I thought they were worth a mention. :)
* the article goes into much more detail, and it's pretty interesting.
ONTD, what's your favorite wholesome meme? Wholesome activity or show?

According to HollywoodLife, the notoriously private star has been single for seven years.
A source says that Cruise dates, but he’s not serious with anyone and has come to terms with the fact that he may not marry again.
Says the source: “Since his heartbreaking, very public split with Katie, Tom has been hesitant to live out loud or fall in love again and sometimes he feels like it will be OK if he never marries again”
“Tom does casually date women, but never in public. He is always very private and he does not have a steady girlfriend”
The source adds: “While Tom enjoys falling in love, he also is happy being by himself and has accepted that, after three failed marriages, he may never get married again,”
