Vanessa looks at the quote her 19 year old self gave, "I just recently learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup," and now claims "lie, that is SUCH a lie. I did NOT feel great about not wearing makeup. I feel like just last year I started to feel good without wearing makeup."
About returning ten years later, Gabrielle says, "I feel mildly less confident than I did ten years ago, but you know what once I made peace with who I am and where I'm at and being 46 I actually feel pretty solid about being back here ten years later. I'm finally really okay with me."

Taylor Swift is facing major ridicule and backlash from her performance of ME! at the billboard music awards. Swift's performance inspired the hashtag, #Mayochella, a play on Beychella, which Beyoncé's Coachella performance was nicknamed. Nylon cites, Black marching bands are the pride, culture and tradition of HBCUs (historically black college and universities) Marchers where accompanied by uniformed marching drummers, majorette dancers, steppers and other performers. Marching band culture were deployed with pride and context. Swift used her marching band to tell one of the dudes from Panic! at the Disco that he'll never find another lover like her.
To add insult to injury Swift has resorted to cringe worthy tactics to ensure her lackluster single ME! is a hit. She has released a rehersal billboard performance on vinyl, discounted the song and now is sending out personal videos to people who purchased the song.

Rose McGowan reveals the reason she wore this completely see-through dress at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1998 https://t.co/7JpJOBO2St— JustJared.com (@JustJared) May 1, 2019
Rose McGowan says her completely see-through dress at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards had a purpose: it was a response to her sexual assault.
“I [wore] that for a reason. It was my first public appearance after being raped. And I thought, it was kind of like Russell Crowe and ‘Gladiator’ when it comes out in the ring and he’s like, ‘Are you not entertained?’ And that was why I did that. That was my response to being assaulted.”
Rose was one of the first women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, alleging that he raped her in his hotel during the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. He has since been accused by more than 60 women, and currently faces a potential life sentence.

Hi everyone! It's time for our monthly ONTD Reading Challenge! Sorry we're running a bit late this month. So let's get started: our theme for May is "I've never even been to Luxembourg!". A reference to a certain Game of Thrones actor. You may have never been to Luxembourg (and cheated on your aristocrat wife with a Russian model there), but you can read about it! So this month, let’s read a book set in a country you’ve never been to. You can read a fiction book or non-fiction, basically anything goes. It doesn't have to be a contemporary book.
Here are 15 suggestions of books set in different countries. You can pick any of these, or choose entirely different countries and books.

Rage Against The Machine's drummer, Brad Wilk, is divorcing from his wife. Why? An affair with Juliette Lewis.
His wife filed for divorce in 2013 after he had an affair with a woman in Las Vegas, but he agreed to reconcile. They tried to make the marriage work by having her stop touring and stay home to raise their two children.
In 2015, they filed for divorce again, but reconciled after a family Christmas vacation but Bradley began touring with Juliette Lewis's band in 2016, and had a long affair. He surprised his wife by telling her he wanted mediation and he was moving in with Juliette Lewis. However, he never went to the mediation meetings, so he was still technically married.
He has not yet responded to his wife's motion for divorce. She is seeking temporary spousal and child support. He and Juliette are apparently still living together.

Meet your new favorite scam or "just stop procrastinating" story of the season. After the financial backer for the festival with no festives dropped out, their festival production partner, Superfly, has also jumped ship! Superfly is the production partner for large, legitimate, actually occurring festivals like Outside Lands and Bonnaroo so these people know they shit. Who can Woodstock run to, to fill this empty field with people? The answer: AEG (Coachella) or C3 (Lollapalooza), the latter was quick to say they wasn't giving no coinT. Michael Lang, the organizer believe the production partners are sabotaging him, "saying they never belonged, so they don't have the right to cancel it" -- Lang insists that somehow, somewhere over that potholed rainbow, Woodstock 50 will happen.
The problems plaguing this hubbabaloo so far:
- Questionable lineup
- The Black Keys dropping out
- Some acts not getting paid on time
- Acts getting paid but ain't no festival progress
- not getting the proper permits for a festival
- tickets delayed, then never sold
- financial backer leaving
- production partner leaving

From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha (“Bend It Like Beckham”) comes the inspirational drama “Blinded by the Light,” set to the music and lyrics of Bruce Springsteen’s timeless songs.
“Blinded by the Light” tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra) a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of “the Boss,” Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen’s powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.
Nicole Kidman Credits Hugh Jackman and His Wife Deborra-Lee Furness for Helping Her ‘Heal’ After Tom Cruise Divorce
In an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly she reveals: “When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing,” “They were some of my best friends through that period.”
In the same interview, Kidman opens up about being "desperate" to have children of her own before meeting Keith Urban:
She said: "I had spent my whole life trying to get pregnant. [Keith and I] both were desperate to find that person [to have children with]. We'd also reached that place of going, 'Gosh, I wonder if it's ever going to happen.'"
In no shit news, Jonathon King, producer of Green Book said they made the movie for old, white people. He said, "the audience for that kind of movie is largely older and largely white. If you believe that older white people don’t need to be told to be less racist anymore because that’s an issue from the past, look around. Because they do. Occasionally you need to make a movie that is directed at older white people." He then went on to say that criticism of Peter Farrelly, the director and admitted sexual harasser, aren't fair because you could never find a director that would properly represent "the lives and lived experiences of those two main characters."
Brisbane twins, Jessica and Lisa Origliasso have released a new single that seems to elude to a very famous former partner of one of them. Lyrics include "I underestimated how complicated you are I don't miss being hated, I don't miss fighting your war"

- [on growing up in compton] "steve is quick to point out that the stereotypical image of compton that dominates the public perception, its streets, its neighbourhoods and its communities, are completely warped, exaggerated and inaccurate. 'it’s not just the compton portrayed in, like, boyz n the hood, that was years ago. the image painted of compton is very negative. a landmark of compton is a damn courthouse, that’s fully fucking sad to me.' such is his pride and respect for his neighbourhood, the word “compton” is tattooed across his chest."
- [on collaborating with established artists and performers] "the accolades soon followed, as did call-ups from kendrick lamar, j. cole and denzel curry to work on the production of their albums. “they’re all just nice, well-rounded, smart, talented people,” he says, of what he learnt sat in studios with such illustrious names. 'they pretty much ensure that I’m one of them. that’s probably the biggest thing that i’ve learnt...that I’m one of them. i didn’t feel any different around them, intimidated around them, you know? we were just cool. just human.'"
- [on working with solange] "working with solange was 'cool', steve says. 'she was open...open to all of to my ideas. i remember there was this one time where I had this chord progression that was very, very tedious. i was so nervous, because it was the first time that i had met her, so i’m like oh man, and i’m like fucking it up, and she’s like 'no, no, don’t worry', and she turned the mic up to my face because i’m playing this like, this chord progression, she was just very open and calm, i ended up getting it out. it didn’t make the record but that was a fun moment.'"
