David Oyelowo Doesn’t See The Problem With British Actress Cynthia Erivo Playing Harriet Tubman

British David Oyelowo responds to a question about the backlash over Erivo’s casting.
He uses some Oscar-winning performances as examples to prove his point.
Any actor should be allowed to portray a person of any nationality.
Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, and Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady'
If the film “goes on to be a huge success and Erivo wins accolades for it then that conversation will only get bigger,”
Rami Malek, Christian Bale and Daniel Day Lewis will never have to answer this kind of question.
Black actors have historically been afforded “limited opportunities,” which has resulted in “scrambling for the scraps.”

“My job as an actor is to inhabit to the point where I either convince you of the truth of that character or I don’t. And it begins and ends there.”

The world-first reactions to It: Chapter 2 are in. With Pennywise’s returning to cinemas on September 6, a few members of the press got the chance to see the scare-filled sequel a few weeks early.

Elsewhere, reactions were decidedly mixed, some commenting that the runtime feels overly long in places and not as tight as the original. Here are a selection of the reactions to It: Chapter 2.

Yesterday, Taylor Swift reblogged and commented on a post that her Father, Scott Swift made on his personal Facebook page:

Here are some of the memes that Scott Swift had shared (publicly) before the account was swept under the rug:

Gwyneth Paltrow hired a personal book curator

Gwyneth Paltrow, in a shockingly bougie move, hired celebrity bibliophile Thatcher Wine (yes, that's a real profession and a real person's name) to find books to stock her personal library with. In addition to finding books that his clients will like to read, he styles their bookcases in a way that matches their tastes.

For Gwyneth's house he focused on expanding her collection of fashion, art, culture, photography, and architecture books. He also found books her kids would like, and gave them some classics they might enjoy as they got older. He found an additional 500-600 books to fill out the shelves. The books in her living room have a less rigid color scheme, but the books in her dining room had to fit a grey, black and white color palette.


Would you hire someone to buy fancy books for you? What's the goofiest rich person name you've ever heard?

Bhad Bhabie Clarifies Nicki Minaj Ghostwriting Comments After Being Attacked by the Barbz

Bhabie tried to explain the intricacies of the music industry by using Nicki Minaj as an example.
"Y'all just don't understand how this industry works. It's so sad. It's so upsetting because people put a lot of work into getting things done and then y'all hear, 'Oh, she didn't write that hook? Oh, well fuck her.' What? Y'all know most of the biggest...Drake, Nicki. All them people get shit written for them, too. Wayne. Like, all types of people get shit written. Whether they actually gonna use it or not, shit still gets written. Even sometimes in sessions artists will talk to they friends [to get advice]. That's how shit gets done. Sometimes it's a team effort."

She didn't suggest that Nicki Minaj relies on a ghostwriter, the sheer fact she mentioned Minaj in this conversation alerted the Barbz.
"I forgot that Nicki's fandom, majority of them are brainwashed and braindead and just so in love with her that they believe anything she says. Not once did I ever say that Nicki doesn't write all of her music or that Cardi doesn't write all of her music or that City Girls or Lil Wayne or any of them people that I brought up earlier...What I said was hooks are given to them [and] verses are given to them sometimes."
