Lizzo’s X-rated condition for becoming ‘Bachelorette’



“If I was the ‘Bachelorette,’ it would just be the coolest season ever. The men would have to be naked and they would have to wear little thong briefs and they would have to feed me grapes. It would be mandatory to get my p—y eaten at least once on the whole season, and it would have to be filmed. It can be blurred, but I would want the people to know. The kids gotta learn someday.”

Slow news of the week goes to a fan on Twitter who recently discovered that Lana Del Rey (or at least her channel) liked a video on Youtube of a scene from Despicable Me 3 titled 'Dru saves Gru from Laser attack'. Her Youtube page, which is mainly her music channel, also seems to be subscribed to a children's toy channel called CookieswirlC.

We don't know if this is just one of her simple pleasures, if she let a child browse on her Youtube, or if she has a secret child - but it had fans wondering about the Hillsong Church attendee's interests.

Shang Chi The First Chinese Superhero Marvel Film Sparks Controversy In China Over Tony Leung's Role





-While many of his fans are happy for him, not everyone is amused by the news. On Weibo, Chinese netizens are criticizing Leung for accepting the antagonist role who is said to be inspired by the controversial character Fu Manchu. On Weibo, #TonyLeungChiu-waistarringnewMarvelfilm quickly accumulated 410 million views and spawned nearly 64,000 posts.

-"To give a little bit more context on the character, Fu Manchu is a villain character created in 1912 who has become an archetype of the evil criminal genius and mad scientist. The character made his debut in Marvel comics in 1973 and is widely seen as a racist take on the Chinese by Westerners."

-In the comic, Fu Manchu is the father of Shang Chi and is a racist caricature of a Chinese person that highlights Yellow Peril (a xenophobic hysteria targeting Asians arriving in the United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries).

-"Weibo users note the film's plans to pit Shang-Chi against the Mandarin instead of Fu Manchu swaps out one offensive Chinese stereotype for another. The Mandarin was similarly depicted as an East Asian caricature representing the communist Chinese menace when he originally appeared as an Iron Man villain."

-"This complaint is compounded by Weibo users observing that popular Hong Kong actor Tony Leung has been cast as the Mandarin, while Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu is Canadian, rather than a Chinese citizen."

-Simu Liu is an unknown actor in China said entertainment industry analystn Wu Zhaojie. Said that Leung is one of the few Chinese stars whose work is recognized by Western audiences as Marvel films are shot for a global market.

woodstock 50 (a.k.a.: fyre festival 2: electric boogaloo) will be free


  • in the latest development in the ongoing saga of the beleagured woodstock 50, the seemingly-ill-fated festival tied to the 50th anniversary of the era-defining 1969 event, organizers announced on thursday that the festival would be relocating to columbia, maryland. such a significant location change obviously impacts performers, and on friday, multiple agents claimed that the move was in violation of the festival’s artists’ contracts, and that they’d no longer be obligated to uphold their original contracts.

  • now in a last bid effort to save the fest, organizers have apparently decided to make the entire event free. organizers will release general admission tickets in the near future that will be completely free of charge. attendees are encouraged to donate to various causes once at the festival.

  • vip tickets will still be sold at a cost in an effort to pay for the festival.

  • the move appears to be a last-minute attempt to ensure that artists still hold to the terms of their earlier contracts, despite having no legal obligation to do so. yesterday, beyonce's concubine and john fogerty both pulled out of the festival amid its relocation, with fogerty announcing a separate performance of his own at the bethel woods center for the arts that same weekend. it has been reported that saturday’s headliners, dead & company, would also no longer be performing at woodstock 50.

  • woodstock 50 is currently scheduled to take place august 16th-18th at merriweather post pavilion in columbia, maryland. time will tell if anything still happens as planned.

Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty says “blasphemy” to changing the date of Halloween


• An online petition to move Halloween to the last Saturday in October instead of being on the 31st has picked up steam over the last few days. It’s gone viral with more than 96,000 signatures and counting.

• The petition was started by the nonprofit Halloween & Costume Association and claims that moving the holiday to the last Saturday in October would create a “safer, longer, stress-free celebration.”

• It is addressed to that racist idiot in the White House (Trump).

• It was started last year and for whatever reason is only just now gaining momentum. Possibly due to Halloween not being too far away (94 days).

• Director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) called this attempt to change the date as “blasphemy.”

• It won’t be easy however and is very unlikely. Halloween is not a federal holiday, therefore Trump or federal officials wouldn’t be able to change the date.
