Wade Robson Responds to MTV Decision Not to Rename 'Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award'

Wade Robson spoke exclusively to The Wrap to give his thoughts on MTV choosing to keep his alleged abuser's name on their award. He said:

“I don’t personally need MTV to do one thing or the other, but as child abuse survivors all over the world watch to see whether society will support them or not if they have the courage to come forward, in that regard, it’s an unfortunate choice."

It's interesting to see MTV bending over backwards to protect the legacy of Jackson (an alleged child molester) considering they invented the award just to shut his jealous ass up.

According to J. Randy Taraborrelli 's 1991 book Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness, the award was invented to placate the alleged child molester after his jealousy of non-child molester Madonna being named "Artist of the Decade" by multiple publications in 1989. From the book:

Chris Cuomo gets called "Fredo", compares the term to the n-word

  • CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was secretly filmed by a bunch of conservatives trying to get him to flip out

  • The men approached him and called him Fredo (not captured) and Cuomo goes on to say "It's like the n-word for my people" (Cuomo is an American with Italian ancestry)

  • Things got heated the way it can when two dumbass men are posturing but ultimately nothing happened (Cuomo did go on to basically call the guy a punk bitch which was kind of funny)

  • The term "Fredo" is a reference from The Godfather movie where Fredo Corleone was the loser brother who kept fucking things up for the rest of the family

  • Because he has nothing else to do and he's a total joke Donald Trump weighed in saying that Cuomo was a Fredo

  • CNN was reached for comment and basically said they don't give a fuck since it was an obvious set up


True facts: I still have never seen the Godfather the whole way through.

Over the weekend, Taylor Swift was honoured with the made up Teen Choice Award for being an philanthropic icon or something. After the ceremony she posted a photo with US soccer player Alex Morgan with the caption "The thirteens really jumped out"

It is unclear if she knows that she was interpolating a quote from Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School, where host Monique calls Pumkin Brooke a whore.

Cara Delevingne goes nude for Marie Claire, opens up about Ashley Benson and her sexuality

Cara Delevingne is Marie Claire's September cover girl for their annual Obsession Issue.

The 27-year-old model bares all in the spread, and opens up about acting, her sexuality, her new relationship with Ashley Benson, and her thoughts on the on-going Harvey Weinstein case.

On sexuality and gender stereotypes: "[I spent years denying my attraction to women because] I didn’t want to feel different, even though from an early age I always felt I didn’t belong. [...] The whole idea of gender is so fixed. I just want to, like, explode it. I’m not nonbinary, but I feel as much man as I am woman."

On Harvey Weinstein: She says she didn't realize Weinstein had sexually harassed her until women started coming forward. “I was like, Oh my God, that means I was abused? I don’t think he’ll ever be able to repay what he’s done.”

On Ashley Benson: “We weren’t looking for it. It was really just very authentic and natural. She’s one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most.”

She says her favorite musician is Billie Eilish, and that her new show, the Amazon series Carnival Row (premiering August 30), is “the first [thing] I’ve done where I’m really full-blown acting.”

Pose star Billy Porter was 'panicked' about Pray Tell's love scene

Billy Porter initially panicked over his character's sex scene in Pose with Ricky (Dyllon Burnside):

“I’m not used to people seeing me as a leading man, I’m not used to people seeing me as a romantic lead in anything,” says Porter. “You have to have a certain kind of confidence. I had to get that confidence quick so I could tell the story.”

“We get a lot of airtime as African-American men killing each other. We get a lot of stories about that,” he says. “But we get very few where we see black men trying to figure out how to love each other. And that is really thrilling.”

Disney's already in very early stages to make 'The Return of Jafar' Aladdin live-action sequel

After making over a billion dollars, the live-action 'Aladdin's already being explored into becoming a franchise, continuing with an adaptation of 'The Return of Jafar', according to the films producer Dan Lin:

I can just tell you that we’re in early stages right now, but we’re certainly talking about another movie. Like with Aladdin, it will not be a straight remake of any movie that’s been made before, so we’re looking at ‘where’s the best way to go with these characters.

Lin also said he'd love to get Guy Ritchie (why) back as director if/when the sequel proceeds.


Apple faces uphill battle with iPhone 11 coming out next month in September

It’s nearing that time of the year again: a new iPhone is on the horizon. But what was once a major event in technology has slowly lost steam. Year after year it’s gotten a little less innovative and exciting yet more expensive. Writer Ewan Spence for Forbes writes about the many challenges ahead for Apple.

Sales have slowed down in not just the US, but Europe as well: “iPhone European shipments fell from 7.7M in Q2 2018 to 6.4M in the same quarter this year. That 17% drop in sales saw Apple’s share of the European smartphone market fall from 17% to 14.1% during the 12-month period.”

Overall sales are also down.

To combat the negative attention, Apple CEO Tim Cook has asked the company to stop releasing sale figures of the iPhone for now.

What do we know so far about iPhone 11?
An official announcement in early September with a release around mid-September (September 20th is the rumored release date).

The high end model is rumored to be called the iPhone 11 Pro.

A new and improved triple-lense camera.

Minor design changes.

Faster processor and chip.

iOS 13.

What it won’t have?
A new or significant redesign.

No 5G. It’s been delayed until 2020.

A foldable iPhone isn’t expected until 2021.

Touch ID 2.0. It won’t make its return until 2021.

The headphone jack for your wired earphones. It’s never coming back.

mini-disney round up: 'cheaper by the dozen' and 'new mutants' news

  • black•ish producer gail lerner (happy endings and will & grace) has been hired to direct disney's cheaper by the dozen reboot

  • black•ish and grownish creator kenya barris and jenifer rice-genzuk will pen the script and donald j. lee jr. (the greatest showman, and the art of racing in the rain) along with barris will serve as producers.

  • the reboot is part of disney's content strategy for disney+, which will include live action remakes of lady & the tramp, night at the museum, diary of a wimpy kid, and home alone; mid-budget family oriented programming.

  • now, that it has been revealed that x-men: dark phoenix was a huge loss at the box office for the disney as revealed by ceo bob iger during their earnings call last week, the next question is what happens to new mutants? the final film in fox's x-men universe.

  • new mutants has gone through it’s fair share of post-production hiccups, including major reshoots, and release date changes, amongst others.

  • now, according to variety, the studio isn’t expecting much from their newly acquired film: "disney is optimistic that handing fox superhero properties such as fantastic four and x-men to marvel studios president kevin feige will improve the quality of these movies, but bumps must be smoothed over in that transition. the studio is unimpressed with new mutants, an x-men spinoff with a haunted-house vibe, and believes it has limited box office potential."

  • it’ll be interesting to see what disney decides to do next: release it in theaters in hopes that comic book and movie fans flock to it like their marvel cinematic universe? or do they release on disney+ or hulu like so many have rumored before. either way dark phoenix has given disney a reason to worry with future fox properties, as they’ve already reportedly cancelled a handful of films from fox that include mega man, flash gordon, and magic: the gathering, amongst many others.

  • new mutants is set to hit theaters on april 3rd, 2020…which no one believes will actually stick.

We measured pop music’s falsetto obsession

It’s nearly impossible to turn on the radio and not hear a male artist singing really high. Likely he’s a tenor, and more often than not he’ll sing in falsetto. Think Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Drake, Charlie Puth, Shawn Mendes, Adam Lavine, Sam Smith ... the list goes on and on and on.

This isn’t a trend — it has been the status quo for decades.

Using the data diving know-how of The Pudding, and drawing on the expertise of Anthony Roth Costanzo, a professional opera singer, I dig into the world of the high male vocal range by tracking how pervasive it really is across the decades.

Ivanka Trump's ideal man used to be Christian Bale's portrayal of Patrick Bateman in the film American Psycho. The character is a serial killer who works at a bank by day and murders women by night.

The podcast Tabloid: The Making of Ivanka Trump does an in-depth investigation of Trump. According to their findings:

"In her 20s, she said her ideal man, the one she had fantasies about, was Christian Bale in American Psycho playing Patrick Bateman, who is, of course, an ’80s scenester just like her father was back then."

“I was letting my manager do it and he was way more optimistic than I was. He would just buy complete dumps and think that we can just paint and then it should be fine. Never sold anything that we bought.”

“Once you give a shit about the money you’re making, you’re feeling much better about your accomplishments, you feel much better about what you’re doing, you start paying attention to your work that makes you your money,”
