Naomi Osaka"It's either be the best or be homeless" Allure magazine




-When asked about what country she would play for in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo-" Definitely my intention is to play for Japan"

-Asked if she would give up her American passport- Osaka, " You know what's more interesting? If I don't tell you , and I just, like, shock you".

-Osaka doesn't think the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is scary and that it is all about perception.

-Osaka" There's a certain point where talent is not useful anymore and from there you just have to want to win more than everyone else. My parents were not the richest, so what am I going to do? I'm not the smartest. I've been playing tennis my whole life you know? So there is nothing I can imagine myself doing. It's either I have to be the best or I'm going to be homeless".

- On if the path to tennis was decided for her- She balks. "By who? My parents or something. I think in the beginning yes, for sure, but as I grew up, you know I started thinking that these dreams , they're things that I really want to accomplish. So yeah, I think it was more of a push".

- Osaka's current beauty obsession is BareMinerall Bare Pro Performance. Wear Liquid foundation. It has the perfect matte finish.

Netflix's 'On My Block' Stars Score Sizable Pay Raises



The four original leads have signed new deals and are already in rehearsals for season three.
They earned for the first two seasons $20,000-per episode.
Season three consists of eight episodes, that brings them to $81,250 per episode.
The deal also includes a bump from $650,000 to $850,000 for a potential fourth season and $1.05 million for a potential fifth. 

The four stars had been seeking $1.75 million for the entire eight-episode season — or $218,000 per episode. 
The cast is happy with the new deals, but the new deals are far short of what the supporting cast of 13 Reasons Why.

A Look at RL Stine's Slasher Series Fear Street




* perfect for kids too old for Goosebumps and too young for Stephen King

* Fear Street books, despite "their soapy dialogue and ramshackle plotting, delivered on death."

* Stine wasn't just into gruesome deaths (hello, Bobbie getting boiled alive in The First Evil), he was also just plain weird. As evidenced by a shark vs dog fight in Sunburn.

* the appeal is easy to see: short, straightforward, teenage themes, wacky. a sharp contrast to the recent YA dystopia trend.

* trilogy of Fear Street movies are set to be released in "close proximity" to each other. But can soapy teen horror hold its own against art-house horror like Midsommar or Jordan Peele movies?

* Lindsay Katai and Kelly Nugent of the Teen Creeps podcast are also interviewed. I HIGHLY recommend their show especially the episode where they interview author Grady Hendrix (My Best Friend's Exorcism, Paperbacks from Hell) about YA horror.

French’s Created a Mustard-Flavored Ice Cream



Just because you can doesn’t mean you should...

Mustard Ice Cream will be available at Coolhaus’s Culver City, CA location on August 2-4 and August 9-11.

15793162.jpgFOLLOW HER HOME
by Steph Cha

Juniper Song knows secrets–how to keep them and how to search them out. As a girl, noir fiction was her favorite escape, and Philip Marlowe has always been her literary idol. So when her friend Luke asks her to investigate a possible affair between his father and a young employee, Juniper (or "Song" as her friends call her) finds an opportunity to play detective. Driving through L.A.'s side streets, following leads, tailing suspects-it all appeals to Song's romantic ideal of the noir hero.

But when she's knocked out while investigating a mysterious car and finds a body in her own trunk, Song lurches back to the real L.A., becoming embroiled in a crime that goes far beyond role play. What's more, this isn't the first time Song has stuck her nose in other people's business. As she fights to discover the truth about her friend's family, Song reveals one of her own deeply hidden secrets, something dark and damaging, urging her to see the current mystery through, to rectify the mistakes of her past life.

A dazzling debut from fresh new talent Steph Cha, featuring a strong, modern, sharply observant heroine with an unforgettable voice, Follow Her Home takes readers through dangerous twists and turns, beyond the glittering high-rises and freeways of L.A. on a case that will stay with them long after the final page.

Ellie Goulding plans on banning social media on her wedding



For a recent interview with w magazine, the publication asked her thoughts on social media, to which she said “I didn’t really grow up with social media, so it’s never really been a huge part of my life. It’s a bizarre thing, and I think you can honestly say objectively social media is bad for you, and you have to remember that there’s real life, and experiencing real life in the moment is more valuable than taking an Instagram Story of you walking down the street, I don’t know. This idea of capturing the moment rather than living in the moment is quite absurd...”

When asked if she’d allow social media on her wedding day she said “Definitely not. No. I encourage people to be in the moment, and therefore that isn’t compatible with Instagramming every five seconds.”

She acknowledges that unlike her, her fiancé Caspar Jopling, is quite active in social media.

Would you ban social media on a special event?

  • the latest acts to confirm they are no longer performing at the festival-that-doesn't-know-it's-dead include the raconteurs, santana, the lumineers, and the killers.

  • “no bands want to look greedy but most can’t play maryland and don’t want to be involved in an event that is not properly conceived and developed, or risk the health and safety of their fans,” a source who works with a woodstock 50 headliner has said.

  • saving the festival now may mean booking an entirely new lineup. whether organizers are capable of pulling that off remains to be seen. woodstock 50’s replacement production company pulled out last week. a festival spokesperson has not responded to spin's request for comment on whether they’ve secured a new replacement. “we made a deal quickly contingent on [organizers] putting a show together and dealing with the fact that we have a show booked on one of those dates,” says seth hurwitz, venues operator for the promotion company that runs merriweather post pavillion. “so now i’m just a venue waiting to see if the promoter with the hold is going to confirm.”

Mario Lopez says its dangerous as parent to make decisions on childrens gender id and issues apology


Mario Lopez visited conservative host Candace Owens for her show last month but a conversation they had is just now coming to light this week.

Talk show host Owens brought up a “weird trend” of celebs acknowledging their child’s gender identity and cited Charlize Theron as an example. “I’ve had children say they were mermaids. I’ve had children say they could fly. I am trying to understand this new Hollywood mentality where they just think their children now have the mental authority and clarity…”

Lopez agreed: “I am trying to understand it myself, and please don’t lump me into that whole [group of celebs]. I’m kind of blown away too. Look, I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids obviously and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong but at the same time, my God, if you’re three years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination then, well, ‘OK, then you’re going to be a boy or girl,’ whatever the case may be … It’s sort of alarming and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on..”

“To me I just see depression,” added Owens. “You can’t make a decision about your sexuality when you’re three years old.” “When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet,” Lopez agreed. “You’re just a kid.” Owens accused celebs like Theron of “narcissism” and “virtue signaling” for acknowledging their children's gender identities. Added Lopez: “I think parents need to allow their kids to be kids but at the same time, you gotta be the adult in the situation. Pause with that and — I think the formative years is when you start having those discussions and really start making these ‘declarations.'”

After this part of the interview started making the news within the last 24 hours, Lopez issued an apology today to The Advocate.

Prince Harry says he is only having two children “maximum,” for the sake of the planet


Prince Harry said he and Meghan Markle expect to have two children “maximum,” citing concerns for the future of the planet in the September issue of British Vogue, guest edited by his wife Duchess Meghan.

Speaking with primatologist Jane Goodall, Harry opened up about his recent climate change activism.

“What we need to remind everybody is: these are things that are happening now,” he said. “We are already living in it. We are the frog in the water and it’s already been brought to the boil. Which is terrifying.”

Harry also tells Goodall that his views towards environmentalism have changed since the birth of his son Archie in May. “I view it differently now, without question. But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children...”

“Not too many!” Goodall interrups with a laugh.

“Two, maximum!” replied Harry. “But I've always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.”

Drug Lords Used The Home Of Miriam Margolyes, AKA Professor Sprout, To Traffic Cocaine

10174343-1-e1519120946636.jpg

A home belonging to Miriam Margolyes, aka Professor Sprout from the Harry Potter movies, was the safe house for drug lords as they trafficked millions of pounds of cocaine through the UK.

Gang members rented her house from her and used helicopters to smuggle $22 million (£17 million) in cocaine. Margolyes apparently did not know about the drug plot.

Lena publicly defended accused rapist Murray Miller after his victim reported the alleged assault to the police. Then, she gave a cringeworthy interview about her personal life, including her breakup with Jack Antonoff after Lorde allegedly cheated with him.

Lisa Marie Presley inks massive book deal



According to Page Six's source, Lisa Marie Presley has signed a book deal with Gallery Books worth $3-4 million. Presumably a memoir, it allegedly “promises shocking revelations about Michael Jackson and a completely new understanding of Elvis.”

The book is sure to be a trip, with Lisa Marie having grown up and escaped the Church of Scientology, blowing through $300 million of Elvis money, attempted to have a confrontation with Scientology leader David Mascavige, marriages to Jackson and Nicolas Cage, and a past addiction to painkillers (she recently wrote the foreword for the book “The United States of Opioids”).

Reps for Lisa Marie did not return requests for comment.
