Katy Perry found guilty of copyright infringement for Dark Horse

A jury has found that Katy Perry’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” copied a 2009 Christian rap song.

The nine-member federal jury in Los Angeles returned the unanimous verdict Monday.

The decision came five years after Marcus Gray and two co-authors first sued alleging that “Dark Horse” stole from “Joyful Noise,” a song he released under the stage name Flame.

The case now goes to a penalty phase, where the jury will decide how much the plaintiffs are owed for the copyright infringement.

Marvel Studios is casting for their first transgender character + new Endgame deleted scenes.

- Marvel is reportedly looking for a transwoman actress of any ethnicity in her 20s to 30s. The casting breakdown calls for “transgender actresses only.” This is the first time Marvel has looked for a trans person.
- They think the role is for Marvel’s only existing transwoman superhero: Sera, the Anchorite (a small group of male, wingless Angels who were kept inside a temple in the Tenth Realm) Sera was the only one of the Anchorites who identified as a woman, thus being the first and, so far, only major transwoman in Marvel comics. She met Angela, Thor’s long-lost half-sister, and they eventually became lovers.
- The role is probably for "Thor: Love and Thunder" due to Sera's Thor connection and Kevin Feige mentioning the film will have LGBTQ presence. Also, remember Valkyrie is looking for her queen...

Iggy Azalea Not Happy with $64.08 Bill for One (1) Grilled Cheese Sandwich and a Silverware Set

Room service for some Las Vegas hotel charged Ms. Azalea $54 for a single grilled cheese sandwich. To find out why there's a discrepancy between the price in the headline, and the price in the above tweet, check behind the cut

ONTD, what's the best grilled cheese you've ever had and how much would you pay for it? Mine is a tie between Ms. Cheezious's croqueta Monsieur (it's pretty much a croque Monsieur but they put housemade croquetas in it) and the executioner melt at Killer Melts (whipped bleu cheese, bacon, local honey, walnut-arugula pesto, and caramelized pears). I think they're both less than $10?????

Brooks Laich Opens Up About Wife Julianne Hough Not Taking His Last Name: “It Was a Little Jarring”

Julianne Hough’s husband Brooks Laich is opening up about his marriage. On the latest episode of his iHeart Radio podcast, How Men Think, the hockey player spoke about his wife’s choice not to take his last name.

“I don’t find it disrespectful. I’m obviously open to it, but at the start, yeah, it was a little jarring for me.” He continued saying, “When we first met and got engaged and stuff, we had this conversation and I was like, ‘I want you to take my last name.’ I said that. It was important to me.”

He says that ultimately they couldn’t come to an agreement and just got married. Laich says that because the couple don’t have any children at the moment, it’s not that big of an issue right now.

“When we have children, I would want them to have my last name, our last,” he adds.

Laich suggested that his kids either take his last name or a combination of his and Hough’s. “I’m actually kind of surprised that it hasn’t become an issue in our relationship because I do, as a man, I take pride in the last name and being, having that last name as the family name and especially when we have kids, I think that will amplify,” he said.

Laich then says that “it’ll always be an ongoing discussion” but that “I’m not going to make my wife change her last name if she doesn’t feel comfortable,” adding that he doesn’t believe that this issue “creates a division within our relationship.”

Despite trying to be understanding and saying all of this, he adds, “To be fully honest, I would like my wife to have my last name, whether it's now or sometime in the near future or far future.”

ONTD, are you keeping your last name?


Zoey 101 casts reunites + Alexa Nikolas calls Dan Schneider a creep


The Zoey 101 cast sans Jamie Lynn Spears (she was filming a show in Atlanta) and Alexa Nikolas (she wasn't invited) reunited after news of Nick being in talks with Jamie Lynn Spears for a Zoey 101 reboot came out. Even though Jamie Lynn couldn't make it, she posted a video on instagram of the cast singing the Zoey 101 theme song "Follow Me" for her. The cast also tried to facetime her, but she fell asleep and was sad she missed it.

In contrast, Alexa Nikolas made multiple stories and comments about not being invited to the reunion. On Chris Massey's instagram, she commented asking why she's still left out when they're 30 and adults now. Then she made multiple instagram stories about how the Zoey 101 reunion is triggering childhood trauma for her, how she never wanted to be part of the Zoey 101 reboot, especially if Dan Schneider will be invovled, and how Dan Schneider and others who worked at Nick are creeps.

Those in attendance at the reunion were: Victoria Justice (Lola Martinez), Chris Massey (Michael Barrett), Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks), Sean Flynn (Chase Matthews), Matthew Underwood (Logan Reese), Erin Sanders (Quinn Pensky), Abby Wilde (Stacey Dilson), Jack Salvatore Jr. (Mark Del Figgalo), and creator Dan Schneider.

Comedian behind "I Forced a Bot" meme shares hilarious "bot-generated" 'Queer Eye' script

Back in February 2018, comedian and writer Keaton Patti (@KeatonPatti) claimed to have "forced a bot to watch 1,000 hours of The Jerry Springer Show" before asking it to write an episode of its own. He would go on to claim to have made bots do the same with such film franchises as Pirates of the Caribbean and Saw, receiving more likes and retweets with each post and inspiring numerous parodies before a research scientist debunked Patti's claim that the authors of his scripts weren't human.

While the scripts proved to be "almost certainly 100% human-written," they're still undeniably funny, as is Patti's latest: the first page of a "bot-written" episode of Netflix's Queer Eye, which has received over 29,000 retweets and 93,000 likes since being shared yesterday morning.

Riverdale Roundup: New Teacher Cast, Return of an Alter Ego, and More

It had been mentioned that Jughead would be getting a different change of scenery, and a casting announcement has been made to reflect that. Sam Witwer will be joining the cast as Mr. Chipping, a lecturer at an upper-crust prep school that Jughead attends on scholarship. According to the CW's casting description, he is “Handsome, bookish and cool, Mr. Chipping teaches creative writing at a prestigious prep school near Riverdale. He recruits Jughead for his seminar, and while he’s eminently inspiring to his students, there’s a darkness hidden far beneath the surface.” Because it wouldn't be Riverdale without a character having a ~~darkness to them.

This fancy uppercrust school will reportedly be Stonewall Prep, a rival of Riverdale High. Apparently a football game will happen between the two schools.

De Niro in negotiations for Scorsese's "Killers of the Flower Moon"

A collaboration between director Martin Scorsese and two of the actors most associated with him, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, has been mooted a number of times, but has not yet come to pass - De Niro was supposed to be in both Gangs of New York and The Departed, but had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts. Scorsese and De Niro's first film collaboration in a quarter century will come out this fall (The Irishman), but that film is Leo-less.

Now, De Niro is in negotiations for a major role in Killers of the Flower Moon, an adaptation of David Grann's non-fictional account of the not-yet-FBI's investigations into the Osage Indian murders in the 1920s, with DiCaprio as Special Agent Tom White. As an aside, if you haven't read Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon, do so immediately (and without reading anything further on the subject, if you don't know anything about it); it is a fantastic book.


The View: Idris Elba, Hot Topics

Today’s panel is Whoopi, Joy, Sunny, and Meghan.

Idris Elba is So Fine



Idris Elba is hot. You can just stare at him if you don’t want to listen or read the recap. The panel talks about his year, his marriage. His British accent is delicious. Talks about where he and his wife met. Sunny likes to touch him. Whoopi hung out with him the last time she was in London. Mam mentions that his daughter was the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador (shows photo). Said he watched her the whole night, she’s not shy but she hadn’t done anything like that. He’s in a new film, spinoff to Fast and Furious. He plays the villain in Hobbs and Shaw. Also stars The Rock, Jason Statham, Helen Mirren, and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, MI Fallout). Plays clip. Sunny wanted an origin story. He’s also in the horrifying nightmare inducing Cats. Mam asked if he was surprised at the reaction that the trailer got. Looool. They were delicate about it.

Bestselling Author's Stepson Allegedly Murdered An African Man, Then Fled

ontd delia.png

Delia Owens is the 70-year-old bestselling author of Where The Crawdads Sing. But she is connected to a murder that happened 24 years ago in Zambia. She and her husband ran an organization dedicated to stopping elephant poaching.

In a 1995 profile with Turning Point, film crews capture someone shooting a man four times, killing him. Zambian authorities suspect Christopher Owens, the stepson of Delia. Her then-husband, Mark Owens, allegedly helped hide the body.

Even worse: ABC did not report the murder to the authorities, and there is no evidence that the victim was even a poacher.

Kristen Stewart: Karl Lagerfeld Was "Shockingly Unpretentious"


KStew has been out of the spotlight so long that we've forgotten just how dumb her quotes can be. Like when she talks about the late Karl Lagerfeld:

““He was a fancy motherf—ker, but it was true to him... He was incredibly inviting — insanely, shockingly unpretentious.”

Just to remind you, here are some choice quotes from Lagerfeld himself:

“Vanity is the healthiest thing in life.”

“When I was four I asked my mother for a valet for my birthday.”

"Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants."

"I hate intellectual conversation with intellectuals because I only care about my opinion."

"If you throw money out of the window, throw it out with joy. Don’t say: 'one shouldn’t do that'—that is bourgeois."

“The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

The Hunt official trailer!

Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they've been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt.

In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a bunch of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.

I love Betty Gilpin, I'll watch this.

Bruce Lee’s Daughter Saddened by ‘Mockery’ in ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’


Shannon Lee told TheWrap: “It was really uncomfortable to sit in the theater and listen to people laugh at my father”

Shannon Lee says her father comes across as arrogant – ‘not someone who had to work triple as hard to accomplish what was given to many others’

In the film, Lee knocks Booth down in the first “round”, but Booth slams him into a car door in the second round. The fight is interrupted before the third round, but it is heavily implied Booth has got the better of a stunned Lee.

“I understand they want to make the Brad Pitt character this super bad a** who could beat up Bruce Lee. But they didn’t need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive”

Rebel Wilson knows people found the Cats trailer creepy: 'I loved the reaction'

“When the trailer came out, the response was pretty massive. There’s some people who were like, ‘Oh my God,’ because it is brand-new technology that’s CGI,” the actress said. “I think people get confused because it’s essentially a dance movie in a lot of ways. So it really is all our own bodies. And yes, they’re covered in fur. I think some people found it a bit creepy ’cause we’re people but we look a bit like cats dancing around.”

“I loved the reaction. I think it was a bit polarizing and people will be super-curious to see the finished product,” she said. “What you got in that trailer was just some small samples of it, but it’s going to be such a big movie. And the cast is obviously incredible.”



Kelly McGillis Pretty Sure She Knows Why She Wasn’t Asked Back for the New Top Gun Sequel

McGillis says she was not asked to be a part of the upcoming sequel, and she’s fairly certain she can guess why.

“I’m old and I’m fat and I look age-appropriate for what my age is, and that is not what that whole scene is about. I’d much rather feel absolutely secure in my skin and who and what I am at my age, as opposed to placing a value on all that other stuff.” 

In the upcoming sequel, Cruise’s new love interest is played by Jennifer Connelly. 


Courtney Love wants daughter’s ex to undergo psychiatric evaluation in Kurt Cobain guitar case

Frances Bean Cobain' ex is set to undergo a psychiatric evaluation Tuesday. The exam will run for about 7 hours

The guitar the late Kurt Cobain played on Nirvana’s appearance on “MTV: Unplugged” wound up in Silva’s possession as part of his divorce settlement with Frances.

Last May, Silva filed a lawsuit against Love and her manager Sam Lutfi. He alleged they were conspiring to kill him and regain the iconic 1959 Martin D-18Ez.

A source told Page Six at the time that “Frances and the family are prepared to fight with a fury of unprecedented legal force and they will prevail.”

The psychiatric evaluation appears to be the first attempt by the defendants to prove that Silva is not of sound mind.
