- On Monday's show she went further. " My faith has always taught me , "What would Jesus do? And I know Jesus would be attending that Pride Parade. And I know God is love and Jesus is love and love is love. And for a Catholic bishop to come out and say something like that, given the History of Pedophilla in the Catholic church. Given what the Catholic Chirch has hidden about the abuse of children... SOME WOULD SAY BEING AT A PRIDE PARADE WOULD BE MUCH SAFER FOR A CHILD THEN IT HAS BEEN TO BE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR MANY YEARS.

- The audience applauded and Whoopi Goldberg gave six dings to a bell that sits on the table.

-Sunny Hostin was a federal prosecutor specializing in child sex crimes , and never lost a case. She was given a Special Achievement Award for her successful prosecution of sex offenders.

Sweet niblets! Billy Ray Cyrus Is Going to Perform at the BET Awards

If you thought that this timeline couldn't get any weirder, think again. Billy Ray Cyrus is set to perform alongside Lil Nas X during the 2019 BET Awards on the 23rd June.

Lil Nas has admitted in a recent interview: “I knew for a fact that this song would take me to another level but … I can’t say I knew that it was going to be worldwide or nationwide."

Cyrus added: "When I hear something, I don't necessarily try to define it by what is its musical genre," [...] I say ‘do I relate to that song? Does it feel like my roots?' 'Old Town Road’ was all of me, it was my past, present and future. It had everything that I'd been raised on my whole life - banjo, bluegrass and [a] solid country hook."

Lucy Hale & Robbie Amell Cast in The Hating Game


Lucy Hale and Robbie Amell have been cast as Lucy Sutton and Joshua Templeman in the upcoming adaptation of The Hating Game.

Here's the book synopsis from Goodreads:

Lucy Hutton has always been certain that the nice girl can get the corner office. She’s charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman. And the feeling is mutual.
Trapped in a shared office together 40 (OK, 50 or 60) hours a week, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous never-ending game of one-upmanship. There’s the Staring Game. The Mirror Game. The HR Game. Lucy can’t let Joshua beat her at anything—especially when a huge new promotion goes up for the taking.
If Lucy wins this game, she’ll be Joshua’s boss. If she loses, she’ll resign. So why is she suddenly having steamy dreams about Joshua, and dressing for work like she’s got a hot date? After a perfectly innocent elevator ride ends with an earth-shattering kiss, Lucy starts to wonder whether she’s got Joshua Templeman all wrong.
Maybe Lucy Hutton doesn’t hate Joshua Templeman. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.


who else is excited for this??

Chris Hemsworth Says Wife Elsa Pataky Is ‘Sick’ of Seeing Him Shirtless Onscreen

Elsa Pataky really wishes Chris Hemsworth would put a shirt on.

Chris Hemsworth called into Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday and revealed that his wife Elsa wasn't a fan of seeing him shirtless onscreen.

Ironically, Chris's next movie will be Down Under Cover, where he will be investigating a crime ring featuring Australian male strippers.

“There’s some male stripping going on — always healthy. She’s just sick of it. She’s just like, ‘Put your clothes on. It’s not nearly as exciting for her at all,” he said, laughing.

YouTube Allows Right-Wing Creator to Continue Racist and Homophobic Abuse

Basically, YouTube continues to be trash hosting trash.

For the past two years, Vox writer Carlos Maza has been targeted with racist and homophobic abuse by the right-wing YouTuber Steve Crowder.

Last week, Maza documented in a series of tweets the history and examples of Crowder's abuse:

Maza's tweets about this abuse gained a lot of notice, to the point where YouTube actually responded.

Collapse )

While YouTube has officially tweeted that Crowder is okay to continue his racist and homophobic abuse, at least other celebrities and public figures are voicing their support for Maza and condemnation of YouTube's decision:

Collapse )

Hopefully the attention will push YouTube to actually start enforcing its policies against harassment and cyberbullying, even on accounts with large numbers of subscribers like Crowder that sometimes seem to be given a free pass because of the revenue they bring in for YouTube. But given YouTube's history of demonetizing and censoring LGBTQ+ content, right now it seems unlikely.

UPDATE: YouTube have tweeted that they've suspended the monetization of Crowder's channel. They're still granting him a platform for racist and homophobic attacks, though, so YouTube continues to make money off Crowder's harassment even if Crowder doesn't make money off YouTube.

Madonna on the cover of The New York Times


Out this Sunday, the queen of pop covers The New York Times magazine. She also did an interview with Vanessa Grigoriadis, here are some highlights.

Her “I want to rule the world” statement
First of all, I wanted to make a living. I was tired of being broke. But second of all, all I wanted was a song to get played on the radio. That’s all I was praying for. One song.

Her early years in New York
When I was living on the Lower East Side and I didn’t see many concerts, I knew about Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde and the Talking Heads and David Bowie, but there was no pressure for me to be anything specifically, to sound a certain way, to look a certain way. That’s an important thing, because it allowed me to develop as an artist and to be pure, without any influences. What I try to do now is to remember that girl.

How she feels about her old hits
If I’m in a car or I go into a restaurant, I’m out somewhere, and one of my songs starts playing, I just go, ‘Ugh.’ Probably because I’ve had to hear it five billion times already, and I want to escape that.

YouTube will begin removing white supremacist, extremist videos

Keyword is probably 'allegedly'

YouTube said it will begin "prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status."
(What is 'veteran status'?)

If a user is watching a video that comes 'close' to violating policies, the next video in the autoplay list might be from 'authoritative' sources, like top news channels. So if it recommends Fox News, it's only slightly better.

Further down the article, it says that people who make hateful videos will be unable to monetize them through ads or Superchat. So, you can make the videos and spread the ideaology, just not get paid for them.

So, this was all a bunch of nothing.

Johnny Depp accused of perjury after lying about Amber Heard's 911 calls

Amber Heard has called out Johnny Depp for committing perjury, accusing him of lying to police during one of their domestic disputes, and providing false information in his case against her.

Amber filed new court documents in response to Depp's $50M defamation lawsuit, stating that Depp "clearly perjured himself claiming that there was only one 911 call reporting his abuse on the evening of May 21, 2016." (Heard provided records showing that two calls were made to 911 on the said night of May 2016. The first call was made at 8:30 pm and then another one was made at 10:09 pm.)

In the filings, she states that she wants her ex-husband "held responsible for submitting provably false and misleading, and in any event, irrelevant -statements in his declaration."

Heard is also asking a judge to move the case from Virginia to California. Her lawyer states Depp deliberately filed the lawsuit in a different state. "Three years after the fact, Mr. Depp found ‘new evidence’ he wanted to present to a court some 3,000 miles from where any evidence or witnesses are found."


'Younger' star Hilary Duff's fiancé calls Zedd out for being "toxic" and stealing credit

Today for the 7th anniversary of their hit song "Clarity", Matthew Koma ('Younger' star Hilary Duff's fiancé) called out Zedd in an open letter where he said "shitty people suck and when they're successful, people are afraid to blow the whistle."
Matthew explains that when they first started working together and after their first two big songs "Clarity" and "Spectrum" were released, Zedd started giving interviews about the "lyrics he wrote" despite Matthew being the one who wrote every words and melody and then Zedd tried to not pay him for singing on "Spectrum".

He also claims that these days, Zedd has a team of people who write and produce everything for him.


Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky: Couple’s Byron Bay mansion nearly complete

Construction on Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky’s mega-mansion in Byron Bay is nearing completion as seen in new aerial photos taken last month. Construction began in 2017 and once completed it will include six bedrooms, a steam room, media room, gym, games room and a 50-metre rooftop infinity pool.

Nearby neighbors and residents however aren’t impressed and labeled the couple’s new lavish home as “obscene, greedy, flashy and vulgar.”

It’s estimated that the newly renovated home will be worth $20 million once it’s all said and done. The couple originally paid $7 million for the property back in 2014 and tore down the original eight bedroom Balinese-style mansion.

Madonna says she felt ‘raped’ after song leak, hates hearing her old music

Madonna claims her 2015 album “Rebel Heart,” performed poorly because of leaked songs.
“There are no words to describe how devastated I was. It took me a while to recover, and put such a bad taste in my mouth I wasn’t really interested in making music. I felt raped.”

Madonna would prefer not to hear her original music because she’s grown tired of it.

The Subtle Subversions of Always Be My Maybe

- Nahnatchka Khan (Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, Fresh off the boat) was going to direct a buddy comedy produced by Elizabeth Banks, but it was put on hold;

- Randall Park and Ali Wong had a script in need of a director and Khan was their first choice;

- Wong and Park drew from their own upbringings, from their real-life friendship, and from two rom-com for inspiration: When Harry Met Sally and Boomerang;

- The film is a portrait of contemporary middle-class Asian America wrapped in a conventional, mainstream rom-com;

- The characters aren’t defined by being Asian; Wong says: “It’s our reality, and we’re not going to take time to explain it”;

- About Keanu casting: “We thought, Who would be Marcus’s worst nightmare? It should be an Asian American icon who’s a great actor and who’s funny but also willing to make fun of himself,” Wong said. “[Keanu] was flattered that we remembered he was Asian American”; Khan did a similar thing with James Van Der Beek on Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 (actors making fun of themselves).

You can listen to Avicii's new album in cubes placed in six locations.

Six Avicii cubes were placed around the world where people could experience the new album “TIM” before release. The music starts when two cubes activated at the same time, two people place their hands on a screen at the same time. This means that strangers thousands of miles apart listened to a song together. This is a celebration of the power to connect people through music.

Ellen Pompey Says Grey's Anatomy used to be a 'disaster behind the scenes'

At the start, Dempsey made twice as much of Pompeo because he was the more established actor.
The show had serious culture issues, very bad behavior, really toxic work environment,
It can’t be fantastic to the public and a disaster behind the scenes. 
After Season 10, they had some big shifts in front of the camera, behind the camera.
She had to prove the show could go on without the male lead, after season 11.
Pompeo admitted that she hasn’t been challenged creatively at all on the show.
Now her focus is on the achievements behind the camera. 

Now Ellen Pompeo is the highest-paid woman in drama TV, and a producer on Grey's.

NYC Flower Shop Owner Protested Sofia Coppola’s New Movie, Forcing Production to Move

Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray’s movie “On the Rocks” was set to film on Thompson Street in NYC.
Flower shop owner Julia Testa protested against the movie using her street and storefront during filming.
The production was not willing to match the amount of money she would lose because of the filming.
Testa would lose an estimated $2,500 because of the film.
They were only willing to pay her $400 at first and then $1,000 after a bump up. 
Testa took matters into her own hand by filling her storefront with protest banners.
Testa originally planned to use noisemakers during filming to disrupt the production.
She opted to go with signs as to not disrupt the neighborhood. 

“On the Rocks” stars Rashida Jones and Murray as a daughter and father who have a rollicking adventure across New York City. 


Hugh Grant Jokes He’s Too ‘Old and Fat’ to Still Star in Rom-Coms


Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor admitted that he thinks he is now too old to star in anymore rom-coms:

“I’ve gotten too old and ugly and fat to do them anymore, so now I’ve done other things and I’ve got marginally less self-hatred.”

Hugh joked that he couldn't complain about the money it brought him:

'I was being paid tons of money. I was very lucky. And most of those romantic comedies I can look squarely in the face — one or two are shockers, but on the whole I can look them in the face and people like them. And I am a big believer that our job is to entertain. '

Hugh was in a very good mood during the interview and light-heartedly joked that even though most fans believe he’s the nice guy from his movies, “I’m vile … really.”
