Lance Bass came out to Britney Spears to make her stop crying

Lance Bass was on WWHL and shared that he came out to Britney two years before coming out publicly.

“It was the night she got married the first time, to Jason [Alexander],” Bass said. “I went up to Vegas to kind of see the craziness that was happening, and she was a little upset once she realized what she had done.”

“She started really crying. Like, she was so upset,” Bass continued. “And so, I took her to her room and we were sitting on the bed and she wouldn’t stop crying, so I was like, ‘I’m gay.’ And it made her stop crying.”

When asked whether Britney was “sweet and supportive,” Bass responded, “Yeah, she chuckled.”

Beto O’Rourke Talks Campaign




(His wife Amy joins for third segment)

Summary of convo [Spoiler (click to open)]
Talks re-launching his campaign. Mam brings up poll numbers, below Marianne W., fundraising down. He replies that it’s soon, campaigns have flows, talks about how he feels when he’s out there, it’s energetic.

Sunny brings up Tr/mp vs Squad and Send Her Back. Wonders if it will be a campaign theme. Beto says it’s more than Dems who are outraged, details Tr/mp racist words. Believes the voters will reject that racism and bigotry. Joy said she thought Tr/mp ratings went up since his remarks, and the GOP strategy is to paint Dems as unpatriotic socialists, how will Beto go up against that. Beto explains his strategy. Joy & Sunny bring up that Tr/mp wants to cut Meals on Wheels program, cutting out the only meals for 3M people. Mam thinks comparing Tr/mp to Nazis is extreme (it’s not, crack a history book). Beto tries to explain, Mam interrupts, Beto carries on. Mam thinks people who voted for Obama then Tr/mp (o_ok) will need to be won over. Beto continues that he went into high red territories because they deserve to be heard, quotes his election votes from 2018 (run for Senate, dude).

Wife Amy joins them. Nice dress. 3 kids. Shows photo. Joy wondered if she cried when he said he was going to run. Amy says No, she cried back in 2008-9 when she was pregnant and it seemed out of the blue. Flash fw, she’s fine with it now. Amy read Michelle Obama book Becoming, recounts similarities in being a working mother. Beto says she’s amazing and they made the decision together. Mam brought up quotes about sometimes raising kids. Amy says she wasn’t upset with him, he was trying to illustrate that it was tough for her. Sunny and Amy talk a little Spanish. Sunny mentions they revealed they’re both descendants of slaveowners. Beto talks about that. Reparations = yes pass bill to study (which is the first step).

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande Lead 2019 VMA Nominations

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande both received 10 VMA nominations this morning, including Video of the Year.

It is unclear if Swift will participate in this year's awards; the 'revenge porn' music video for Kanye West's Famous nominated for Video of The Year in 2016. Since Scooter Braun promoting Famous with a single tweet is a partial reason for her anger towards him, it would make sense for her to boycott the VMAs altogether. That said, her album Lover is conveniently schedueled for release three days before the ceremony.

The awards show will air on MTV on Monday, Aug. 26 at 8 pm ET

Taylor Swift scanned pages from her diaries for fans to purchase with a deluxe album

While filming another music video today, Taylor took a moment to film an Instagram story for her fans.

In the story, dressed in new merchandise, she reveals that the four deluxe versions of her album "Lover" will include 120 pages from her diaries. Each deluxe album will include 30 pages, so there will be 120 in total. The pamphlets will also include personal photos and original lyrics. (She starts to show examples around the 5-minute mark.) Each deluxe album is $16.99.

She also explains why her newly released track "The Archer" is the 5th track of her album. She says, "I really wanted to give you track five before the album came out. So track five is kind of a tradition that has really started with you guys because I didn't realize I was doing this, but as I was making albums, I guess, I don't know why, but instinctively, I was just kind of putting a very vulnerable, personal, honest, emotional song as track five ... So because you noticed this, I kind of started to put the songs that were really honest, emotional, and vulnerable, and personal as track five."

Teen rapper Tay-K sentenced to 55 years in prison

Last week, Soundcloud rapper Tay-K was found guilty of murder and he pled guilty to three counts of aggravated robbery.

Today he was sentenced to 55 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the 2016 murder of 21 year old Ethan Walker that led to his big song "The Race".

He'll be eligible for parole once he's served half of that time.

He was also sentenced to 30, 13, and 13 years for his three counts of aggravated robbery, but all of the sentences will be served concurrently.

He avoided a capital murder charge in this case but he's still potentially facing one in another county for the death of an unrelated 23 year old man.

The Expanse SDCC roundup

io9 gave a break down of the panel and some of the cast interviews from afterwards.


[Spoiler (click to open)]* Bobbie isn't really in book 4, so they got to write new material for her and showcase Bobbie the human, rather than just Bobbie the Marine, which Frankie Adams enjoyed doing. Ty Franck (one half of James S.A. Corey) talks about the Roci landing for the first time on a planet, having to redesign the ship and adding landing struts that come down. He also mentions the brutal physical aspect Belters go through to prepare for being planet-side, a side of Belter life we hadn't seen before and how Dominique Tipper was committed to it.

* Regarding adapting the books to the show, Ty says they have a rule when writing the books, which is also true for the show's writers' room: The best idea wins, the only thing that matters is that they make a thing that's good. They don't fight about whose idea should win. Naren Shankar (showrunner) praised the two authors for not being 'precious' about things and willing to change chronology, folding character arcs into different characters and moving storylines around. This season they took a character that they didn't include in an earlier season for the storyline in the book for that season, and pulled that character into this season. They say book readers will be very excited when this character shows up, because we thought the writers forgot about this character.

* Cas Anvar says there's a nice evolution between Alex and Naomi in season 4, that has to do with the huge shift that they're taking, going to the planet. Dom says it's the first time you really see the Roci crew as a family, kind of settled in who they are and their relations with each other. They start off in a lovely family dynamic, but you know it's all gonna go downhill, basically.

* They talk a bit about Murtry (played by Burn Gorman)- the character has a certain perspective, one of the things they like doing in the show is not having anybody who is just evil for the sake of being evil, everyone who's in conflict is there because they think they're doing the right thing. You see in the clip that was released the Earth corporation, the Belters and the Roci crew, that gives you a good sense of what a core conflic in the season is going to be about.

* According to Steven Strait, season four will have a different tone- book four is kind of a gear change and has a different flavor to it. The show approaches that also on a technical level with lens changes- they use anamorphic lenses that are kind of wide screen and gives a frontier look to it. But there's also a gritty intimacy with the Roci crew and the people on New Terra/Ilus. You move into this vast and different space, and yet you kind of delve deeper into each character as well. The world does get much larger, and yet it also gets far more intimate at the same time.

Lou Pearlman Biopic in the Works

A big-screen biopic about Lou Pearlman, the boy band mogul turned Ponzi schemer, is on the way. It will be titled Transcon.

Pearlman was famous for starting and managing the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, LFO, O-Town, and others. He died in 2016 from a heart attack while serving a 25-year prison sentence.

The film will be based partly on a 2007 Vanity Fair article about Pearlman. Songwriters Desmond Child and Andreas Carlsson have signed on as producers. Carlsson helped write the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way” and *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye."

The Boy Band Con, a documentary about Pearlman produced by *NSYNC member Lance Bass, premiered earlier this year.

Hope the casting for this will be better than that budget Lifetime Britney movie.

-The scene where Denise Richard's character performs the Frankie Valli hit" I can't take my eyes off of you" while dancing with a Jesus doll on a crucifix. Some extras were not amused.
