Elizabeth Smart's father announces he's gay, leaving his wife & church




Ed Smart, dad of Elizabeth Smart, announced he is gay, divorcing his wife, and also leaving The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He announced in a Facebook post:

"It is with this same spirit that I wish to share the news that I have recently acknowledged to myself and my family that I am gay, the decision to be honest and truthful about my orientation comes with its own set of challenges, but at the same time it is a huge relief."

Ed on leaving his church:

"As an openly gay man, the Church is not a place where I find solace any longer."

"Living with the pain and guilt I have for so many years, not willing to accept the truth about my orientation has at times brought me to the point where I questioned whether life was still worth living, I can no longer live trying to appease someone else's idea of who I should be, and have come to the conclusion that it was never my Savior's intent to change me from the way I was born."

Elizabeth has also released a statement:

"My parents taught me as a young child that they would love me unconditionally no matter what happened," she said. "While I am deeply saddened by their separation, nothing could change my love and admiration for them both. Their decisions are very personal. As such, I will not pass judgment and rather am focusing on loving and supporting them and the other members of my family."

Honestly, good for him.

Bruce Lee’s Daughter Says Quentin Tarantino ‘Could Shut Up’ About Her Father’s Portrayal

Quentin Tarantino earlier defended the portrayal of Bruce Lee in his film citing a quote in a biography written by Lee's wife; "If people are saying, ‘Well he never said he could beat up Muhammad Ali.’ Well, yeah, he did. Not only did he say that, but his wife, Linda Lee, said that in her first biography I ever read. She absolutely said that.” The quote in the biography that Tarantino is referring to was not attributed to Lee himself but to a critic watching him fight.

When asked by Variety what Tarantino could do to rectify it, Bruce Lee's daughter Shannon Lee said “He could shut up about it. That would be really nice. Or he could apologize or he could say, ‘I don’t really know what Bruce Lee was like. I just wrote it for my movie. But that shouldn’t be taken as how he really was.'”

“[Tarantino] can portray Bruce Lee however he wanted to, and he did,” Shannon Lee said. “But it’s a little disingenuous for him to say, ‘Well, this is how he was, but this is a fictional movie, so don’t worry too much about it.’”

If you're a feminist, you have to take the allegations against sexual predator Katy Perry seriously



In recent events R.Katy has been accused of sexually harassing multiple victims. Some of her unwanted sexual abuse has been documented on live tv with the victims not consenting to her advances. Perry has yet to respond or release a statement for grabbing shawn mendes teenage ass, exposing Josh Kloss's penis or fondling and then trying to kiss Tina Kandelaki at a industry event, these are just a few examples of Katy's despicable behavior.

The independent gave a factoid: "When men are victims of sexual violence, they’re taken less seriously. Frequently, these victims are told to “man up” and “enjoy it” when they bravely come forward with their accusations. This rhetoric reinforces toxic masculinity and allows men to be victimized further as they may feel that their assault wasn’t truly an assault".

Yet Perry has yet to be “cancelled” or face much public condemnation, why does Katy get a pass?

Taylor Swift - Lover Tracklist Officially Leaks

A Target employee (who is quite possibly braver than the Marines) has taken photos of the back cover of both the standard and deluxe editions of Taylor Swift's upcoming album Lover. It's the same list that I reported earlier this month, with a couple changes (the order is different, it's Cornelia instead of Cornelius, and it's Miss Americana not The Americana). There are also previously unmentioned "voice memos" on the deluxe.



The leaked tracklist also confirms the producers on the album: Jack Antonoff, Louis Bell, Joel Little, Frank Dukes and Taylor Swift. This means she did not work with Max Martin and Shellback for the first time since Speak Now.

UPDATE: Taylor released the tracklist on her own

Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, this dark comedy series stars Kirsten Dunst as Krystal Stubbs, a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM)—the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her family to ruin in the first place. Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM, until her business begins to affect those closest to her.

You can watch the first episode below. (US only apparently, sorry)

ONTD Original: Does Tom Hiddleston Only Own One Shirt? An ONTD Investigation

ONTD Tom Blue Shirt.png

Tom Hiddleston was named the Most Stylish Man In The World by GQ in 2017... for his red-carpet suits. But in real life, he appears to have only one shirt: a blue tee with 3/4-length sleeves.

He has been wearing this damn shirt since 2015, according to my research... So, is it the only shirt he owns?

(warning, pic-heavy)

Is this Tom Hiddleston's only shirt?

Yes, the Hiddleswift p.r. stunt left him broke and he can't afford clothes

No, you have just cherry-picked random tabloid photos of his shirts

Idk... doesn't he also own the "I <3 T.S." tank top?

Unnamed American singer sues producer for sexual assault when she was 14


A singer has just filed a lawsuit claiming she was sexually molested when she was just 14 by her producer/agent/mentor.
The lawsuit does not mention the name of the girl or the alleged perpetrator.
It claims she recorded an album in 2005 when she was 14, and she was signed to a 7-album deal.
The lawsuit claims the entertainment company she worked with is "one of the most beloved, best-known and most valuable companies in the history of the world."
