Malaysian singer charged for having a sun bear as pet. She thought it was a dog

27-year old singer, Zarith Sofia Yasin, was charged in Kuala Lumpur for having a protected specimen, a sun bear, as a pet dog, in her apartment.

She claims the unlikely roommate came into her possession after she spotted an injured dog – or so she thought – on the side of the road. Eventually naming it Bruno.

Bizarre videos of the sun bear cub poking its head out of her window circulated through social media. Eventually, the authorities and was charged with illegally holding the sun bear. Under Malaysian law, you can receive a maximum of 200,000 Malaysian ringgit (~$50,000) or 10 years of jail time for possessing a protected species without a permit.

It’s alleged she planned to sell the bear, although she denies this accusation.

Have you ever thought a bear/rat/raccoon was a dog?

Lil Nas X Is Making a Full Fledged Album

2019 Billboard Legend Lil Nas X announced today that a full fledged album is coming. The EP drops next week.

"Old Town Road" has been #1 on the Billboard Charts for 10 weeks.

I have no idea what an EP is and at this point I'm too afraid to ask.

Margot Robbie explains her decision to work with Quentin Tarantino

- says she was reassured by the fact that tarantino has never been accused of sexual misconduct or harassment, and that he called the car crash with uma thurman “one of the biggest regrets of my life"
- says the thought crossed her mind that it might be a conflict with everything she's doing for women on the producing side (she owns a production company)
- robbie personally wrote tarantino a letter asking for an opportunity to work with him because she felt she was ready
- it's been a lifelong dream of hers to be in one of his movies

on working with him:
“I don’t know. I don’t know how to say what I feel about it, because I’m so grateful to be in a position of power and to have more creative control when that is embraced and encouraged now. At the same time, I grew up adoring movies that were the result of the previous version of Hollywood, and aspiring to be a part of it, so to have those dreams come true also feels incredibly satisfying. I don’t know. Maybe I’m having my cake and eating it too...”

on a possible conflict:
"It would be easier, and so much more unfulfilling, not to have a production company. To not hire first- and second-time female directors, and stake millions of other people’s money, and put my name to it and everything I’ve worked for, but I’ve made the choice to do it, and I don’t regret it. On the flip side—and it doesn’t even feel like a flip side—it was my lifelong dream [to work with Tarantino], and I got to do it, and it makes me sad if people might hold that against me despite everything else I’m doing.

on quentin being a big part of hollywood:
“Quentin told me, ‘You will never have more fun on a movie set.’ And he was right. I had the greatest experience of my life. There are some aspects of old Hollywood that are really wonderful and important and should be carried over. Do you erase history because there were some bad parts? Maybe it’s important for us at this juncture to acknowledge the good parts as well.

ONTD ORIGINAL: For Your Consideration: Best Comment (for the first half of) 2019

I did this last year, and we all came to the conclusion that my sense of humor is very different than most of ONTDs.

And now I'm going to subject you to it once again, with some comments you really should consider for Best Comment in our end of the year festivities. When we get to the end of the year, clearly this is just for the first 6.5 months! You've probably laughed at some of these.

While the Tati vs. James Charles with a sprinkling of Patrick Jeffree Star drama has come to a cease-fire, remember; Don't bring a makeup-brush to a vitamin-fight.

Look I can’t believe i have to defend this boy but so far, he is the only one who has released receipts while Tati relied on her “white surburban mother with a van” look to get the world on her side. - surfermedley

Lana Del Rey Posts Clip of "Norman F*cking Rockwell"


It's been 9 months... 9 MONTHS since she released the first single "Mariners Apartment Complex", and a few hours ago Lana Del Rey just teased a bit of the Norman F*cking Rockwell title track through a cheap sketch effect filter on Instagram.
Some of the lyrics made out -

....Goddamn manchild
You f-cked me so good I almost said 'I love you'

You're fun and you're wild
But you don't know half of the sh*t you put me through

Your poetry's bad and you blame the news
But I cant change that and I cant change your mood

Cause you're just a man
It's just what you do....

Antonoff, who is tagged in the post, is on the production along with the string of singles she released in the past year.

Ooh Miss Del Rey waking me up in this era with a sassy power ballad
