You know I love Carisi ("Who?" - The SVU Writers) but I had to post this gif for y'all, i.e. the highlight of the episode. I may not enjoy the show much these days, but damn if some moments don't get me lmao. Only on SVU! Anyway, ONTD, did you watch last night's episode? How did it feel when you realized that Snoop Dog had as much screentime as Carisi, i.e. 3 whole minutes? Did you enjoy yet another clueless SVU portrayal of rappers? But did you actually enjoy all that Fin screentime? And did you think Orlando Jones deserved a better episode? Lastly, I almost fell asleep before making this post, and for once it wasn't because I was tired, it was because I actually watched the episode lol :/ Oh and ilu <333

Charlize Theron was approached to play Wonder Woman's Mom



Charlize Theron went on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen to promote her film Long Shot and was asked by a caller if it was true that she turned down the role of Wonder Woman. Charlize said no, she did not turn down the role of Wonder Woman. She says she was told that she was approached for the movie Wonder Woman but she was unsure as she wasn't familiar with and didn't really know what Wonder Woman did. The person approaching her then said "no...it's for Wonder Woman's mom." Charlize says it was the defining moment when she "crossed over" and that she wasn't fully aware of it beforehand. For those who don't want to watch the clip, Charlize said that it was "a great example of how hollywood slaps you in the face when you start aging," but she also told the story humorously and was able to laugh about it.

According to google, Charlize Theron is 43 and the actress who played Wonder Woman named Gal Gadot is 34, meaning Charlize would be playing mother to someone only nine years younger than her. The actress who ended up with the mother role, Robin Wright, is 53. Thank you to the good sis Alienjive for pointing out that Robin Wright played the aunt, the mother was Connie Nielsen who is also 53.

Smash Mouth's "All Star" Found New Life in Memes




* "All Star" was released 20 years ago today(!)

* after submitting their album Astro Lounge, the label felt it didn't have a hit single and asked them to write something. Writer Greg Camp took inspiration from his Converse All Stars and wanted to write a song for kids who needed a "pep talk".

* song was a hit. Smash Mouth opened for the MTV Video Music Awards and also had guest spots on the soundtracks for Mystery Men, Rat Race, and Shrek.

* their follow up album flopped, and they were dropped from their label.

* re-purposed as a meme as early as 2009 which then evolved into videos like this:



* previously songs reached "icon status" only by "industry gatekeepers" but social media allows "the listening habits of millions to be documented instead of the ideas of a powerful few".

ONTD, do you have a favorite musical meme? I'm partial to the Mr. Brightside ones myself.

André Aciman Reveals Cover to "Find Me", "Call Me By Your Name" Sequel





Author André Aciman will shift some of the action to Rome, Italy, jumping decades ahead of that fateful first meeting between Oliver and Elio (played by Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet). Find Me follows Samuel on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit his son, Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist; a chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami’s plans and changes his life forever.

Elio, meanwhile, soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, and Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic.

Justin Bieber on backlash over supporting Chris Brown: Bullying is Not Okay


Justin Bieber responds to the backlash over saying that "Michael Jackson + Tupac = Chris Brown" and that Chris' talent is overlooked because of a "mistake" he made by posting an instagram story that says bullying is not okay ever because it's killing young people.

Chris Brown responded to Justin's post saying that Justin is a king that inspires and creates endless possibilities and that he will ride with him until the wheels fall off and when they do they'll get new wheels.

Rightful backlash for supporting an abuser (yet still lots of support from other celebrities) is bullying that's never okay, but being a violent abuser is okay?

Britney Spears recreates (?) Janet's Control cover + short history of Brit stanning Miss Jackson

https://instagram.com/p/BxBVY1uAkJX


Britney is back at her house which she now uses for impromptu photoshoots apparently! She posted pics of her striking a pose against a red backdrop which are quite reminiscent of Janet Jackson's iconic Control cover art. This would not be a reach as Janet has been a long-time influence on Britney's music, performances, and dance routines with Britney herself often speaking about her love for Janet on camera or covering her songs on tour.

British runner Sharp received death threats for Semenya comments



Sharp said she had received death threats for past comments about Semenya's "advantage" in middle distance races.
She finished ninth behind winner Semenya in Friday's Diamond League 800m race in Doha.
The victory was the 30th consecutive for double Olympic champion Semenya at the distance.

"I've had death threats. I've had threats against my family and that's not a position I want to be in. It's really unfortunate the way it's played out. By no means am I over the moon about this, it's just been a long 11 years for everyone. I've known Caster since 2008, it's something I've been familiar with over the past 11 years. No-one benefits from this situation - of course she doesn't benefit, but it's not me versus her, it's not us versus them."

In the future, Semenya and others with DSD must take medication to reduce their testosterone levels if they wish to continue competing in races between 400 meters and a mile.
