On this day in 1994, Weezer released their first album. Self-titled Weezer, it eventually became to be known as the Blue Album due to its iconic cover. It was produced by Ric Ocasek and has since sold more than 3 million copies.

The band released three singles off the album: "Undone (The Sweater Song)," "Buddy Holly," and "Say It Ain't So." Spike Jonze directed the videos for the first two singles, and the video for "Buddy Holly" was praised for its blending of nostalgia and technology by inserting the band into an episode of the TV show "Happy Days."

rihanna officially joins lvmh with fenty maison fashion house

  • today, retired pop icon and gamer of feelings, rihanna's deal with lvmh (multinational luxury goods conglomerate, lvmh moët hennessy louis vuitton se, the parent company for pretty much every luxe brand not owned by kering) has been confirmed.

  • rihanna will become the first woman to create an original brand at lvmh, the first woman of color at the top of an lvmh maison, and her line will be the first new house created by the group since christian lacroix in 1987. fenty joins such storied heritage brands as dior, givenchy, celine and fendi and positions rihanna as a breakthrough designer on a number of levels.

  • "the move is a formal acknowledgment from the establishment that a multi-hyphenate pop star/actress/image-maker now has as much global currency, name-recognition and (yes) influence as designers like hedi slimane and nicolas ghesquière. that there is no need to limit them to the street or sportswear world. and that growth in the luxury industry may no longer come just from reinventing old heritage names, but by embracing a new diverse, digital, direct communication-enabled reality."

Tati Westbrook Drags & Ends James Charles In 40 Minute Exposé

  • After posting about her betrayal weeks ago, Tati Westbrook has taken to her YouTube channel to address the James Charles situation.

  • While she addresses the incident that set this off, the real juicy stuff is Tati confirms James Charles is a predator and she has witnessed his predatory behavior first hand.

  • Tati speaks about a time in Seattle at her birthday party when James bragged about trying to trick a straight man into thinking he was gay and when he shoved James off, James started acting like a victim.

  • Tati says she was shocked and immediately told James he needs to seek help because someones sexuality is their own and for he to try and manipulate it or exploit any crack, can follow and damage a person for the rest of their life.

  • She also tells a story about a time when she met James' parents and how James got into a verbal fight with his dad because James says every man is "a little bit gay" and how he knows this. Tati says she was moritfied.

  • Tati helped James renegotiate a better deal with Morphe, they wanted to give him a shitty deal and she used her good relationship with the brand to help him out and it instantly made him a millionaire.

  • James lost his manager after his ebola scandal and no one wanted to work with him. Tati and her husband, who worked in Hollywood, used their contacts to find him a new manager.


Woof! She really exposed the fuck out of him.

Michael Rooker in talks to play King Shark in James Gunn's ‘Suicide Squad’

It has been reported that Rooker is in talks for the role of King Shark in James Gunn's Suicide Squad film. The two have a long-standing professional relationship, with Rooker having appeared in every feature film Gunn has directed so far, including Yondu in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy series.

In the comics, King Shark is a humanoid shark who started out as a Superboy villain before joining the Suicide Squad and the Secret Six. The character previously made his live-action debut in the Flash series on the CW and was originally going to be in the first Suicide Squad movie before being replaced with Killer Croc because he would have required too much CGI.



Cardi B brings out Lil Nas X to perform “Old Town Road”

On Wednesday night, Cardi B celebrated the recent release of her new Fashion Nova clothing line by performing at Fashion Nova’s Party With Cardi event at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The Bronx native surprised everyone by bringing out Lil Nas X to perform his no. 1 hit “Old Town Road.”

“It’s muthafuckin’ hard to get a No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100,” said Cardi right before bringing out Lil Nas X. “That shit is hard as fuck! So every single time I see somebody getting that spot I be like ‘Damn I'm proud of you bitch. I’m proud of you.’ When I got my first No. 1, I cried like a muthafucka. So I wanna say that I’m so proud of this young guy who's about to come up and fuck up the stage because his No. 1 is still No. 1 after they tried to deny his muthafuckin’ entry.”

Needless to say, the Barbz aren’t exactly thrilled. But I digress...

ONTD Original: When Actors Just DGAF Anymore (GoT Edition)

Have you been watching the last season of Game of Thrones and have wondered what creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have been smoking to destroy almost every single character arc and development they have created and crafted since the beginning of the series in the span of just three episodes? Fear not! because it seems that some the actors on the show just might agree with you. With only two more episodes of Game Of Thrones to go before the series comes to a close and finaly ends our masochism, I thought it would be fun to watch when some of the actors couldn't (or wouldn't) hide their thoughts about some of the writing choices for their last season.

Let's start off with Kit Harington, who desribes season 8 finale in one word:

James Charles responds to Tati Westbrook

A follow up to this and this post from earlier today.

James Charles has uploaded a new video responding to Tati Westbrook.

Charles apologizes to Tati and her husband James and thanks them both for everything that they have done for him.

Says Tati took on a “parental role” for him knowing that his parents were across the country.

Still maintains that he is not lying about the security provided for him at Coachella by SugarBear Vitamins and that he won’t address it for a third time.

Says that he betrayed two people that have been very loyal to him and that he wishes he “could take it back.”

About manipulating straight guys and his predatory ways: He says he wishes that he had never shared any details in regards to that on social media. He refers to it as “strange and unique situations that have left people confused and upset.”

Says he’s learned the hard way with “ways of interacting with boys” that he’s trusted and ones that he shouldn’t be talking to.

Acknowledged that Tati did sit him down to talk some sense into him about it and explained how “it looked from the outside” and told him that “talking to these boys might get you into trouble someday.”

Asks his own mother not to defend him in the comments or on social media. Adds that this is a problem he got himself into and it’s his job to deal with.

Ends by saying that in the past he has pulled out receipts and screenshots to “play the victim” but says “not today” and “I’m not.”

His tears throughout the video are dry as hell.

SVU Promo for the 'Epic' S20 Season Finale: Our Suffering Is Almost Over

Next week, it's the SVU finale! Which means I won't have to waste time trying to watch an episode every (other) week! Titus Welliver returns, and his beard is magnificent, and this is also the last episode of Stone as the ADA (good riddance!), and yet neither of those things is enough to get me to watch. Let's just wait for September.


ONTD, first of all, I apologize for not replying to your comments to last week's post, but I am just about 99.999999% done with this season of SVU so I just... couldn't :/ Also, I didn't watch last night's episode either, but apparently it was ripped from the headlines, and it had Ilhan Omar (or an actively antisemitic version of her) "faking" elements of a sexual assault a la Jussie Smollett, but with a homophobic twist? Like... Keep it. At this point, I'm just counting the days until Warren Leight returns. Lastly, I still love you, I just don't love SVU, so sometimes it's hard to even muster up the energy to actively participate in these posts, even though I read all your comments! Thank you for being here ❤️
