Madonna talks about why her eldest daughter Lourdes isn't on a spotlight

On Mother's Day Madonna posted a pretty candid video on her Insta being with her daughter Lourdes and asking for her advice and was pleased when Lourdes approved of her jacket.

In the latest British Vogue interview Madonna opened up about what so many of us were wondering, why Lourdes isn't out there in Hollywood, why she's not the next "it" girl with a singing or acting career.
Madonna's says "I'm green with envy because she's incredible at everything she does – she's an incredible dancer, she's a great actress, she plays the piano beautifully, she's way better than me in the talent department. But she doesn't have the same drive. I feel social media plagues her and makes her feel like, 'People are going to give me things because I'm her daughter.' I try to give her examples of other children of celebrities like Zoe Kravitz, for instance, who have to work through that 'Oh yea, you're the daughter of..' – and then eventually you are taken seriously for what you do. You just have to keep going. But does she have the same drive that I have? No. But she also has a mother, and I didn't. She grew up with money, and I didn't. So everything is going to be different. But what can I do? I can't fixate on it. I just have to do my best."

There Are No Plans To Recast Constance Wu In ‘Fresh Off The Boat’

After the now legendary Friday evening + ONTD Post in which Constance Wu said outright that she wanted to move on from the show that made her a semi-household name onto more movies (the show films 9 out of 12 months), ABC Chief Karey Burke says "Oh, no sis, you're staying."

Using that good ole Hollywood doublespeak of not stepping on toes / 'don't let them see you sweat', Burke says at the Disney press upfronts event;

“[...] I did actually know that Constance had another opportunity had Fresh Off The Boat not gone forward she would have pursued. But we never really considered not bring back Fresh off the boat, it was just too strong. I’m going to choose to believe Constance’s most recent communication about the show that she’s happy to return and the cast and crew is happy to have her back.


Congrats on not being recast! great news :)

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

The Unhoneymooners

Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas.

Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo.

Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be.

Ranchero & mariachi music Mexican legend, Vicente Fernández, recently revealed that after having many health problems and a cancer scare, his doctors suggested a liver transplant, but he rejected it because he didn’t know if said liver belonged to a homosexual or a drug addict. He left the hospital even when the staff was ready for the operation.

HIMYM Showrunner Says People Who Wanted Jamie Lannister Redemption are Why We Have Trump

In a now deleted series of tweets, Carter Bays, former showrunner of How I Met Your Mother, had some words for people disappointed in Jamie Lannister's apparent aborted redemption arc on the latest episode of Game of Thrones. He says that people who wanted Jamie Lannister to develop/change or be redeemed are why we have Donald Trump as our current president.

Additional tweets that didn't get screenshot but were still c/p'ed

"Redemption is great, but when we celebrate the people who come over to the good side more than the ones who’ve always been there, we get into trouble. To be more specific, we get Trump.

I guess what I’m saying is, Jaime Lannister pushed a ten-year-old out of a window. Brienne can better."

James Charles Apology (Game of Thrones Edition)

Jenny Nicholson is maybe mostly known for her Star Wars reviews and other weird/pop culture videos, but she hadn't touched Game of Thrones yet, until today. Combining the audiences that would be aware of all the Tati/James Charles influencer drama and also be GoT fans is certainly a niche, but ONTD might appreciate.

Kevin Federline is reportedly not allowing his ex-wife, Britney Spears, to spend any additional time with their two sons, 13-year-old Preston and 12-year-old Jayden while she battles her lifelong conservatorship in court.

A source close to the former back-up dancer revealed to US Magazine, “Kevin won’t allow the boys to spend more time with their mother until Britney is once again stable and therapeutic on medication. He allows the boys to spend time with Britney, but it’s at his discretion.”

Kevin, who is currently unemployed and a full-time dad, receives $35,000 a month from Britney in child support payments.

Britney is in the midst of a legal battle, asking for legal freedom from her father and appointed conservator Jamie Spears, who she revealed admitted her to a mental hospital against her will.

I’ll never stop playing music to suit someone’s political agenda nor will I stop speaking out against violations of human rights wherever in the world they may be.

My heart breaks every time I hear about the innocent lives that are lost in this region and the violence that is so often perpetuated to suit the political goals of people who benefit from this ancient conflict. I hope and pray that we will soon break free from this terrible cycle of destruction and create a new path towards peace.”
