Jason Derulo shades Shawn Mendes, praises Normani

Jason Derulo recently talked to UK's Official Charts and he had a lot to say about traditional popstars being out of fashion and how much he hates dudes in white t-shirts performing at award shows:

“Performing is such a lost art. I come from a different school. When I watch these award shows and I see a dude comes out in a white t-shirt, I’m like, s**t, that’s terrible man, this is what the music industry is. And that s**t happens over and over again. How is that okay? How are we okay with our award shows looking like this? I love the total package, so you know, you kind of feel a little slighted."

On Normani: “Man, it’s so refreshing. So refreshing. That’s a clear example of the difference. And peoples reaction to is like, ‘What is this? Someone is singing and dancing? I don’t understand?!’”

In her review, Jenn Pelly proclaims Del Rey "the next best American songwriter, period," "a millennial troubadour—singing tales of beloved bartenders and broken men, of fast cars and all of the senses, of freedom and transformation and the wreckage of being alive."

Kristen Stewart Was Told to Stay Closeted to Get a Marvel Movie

Kristen Stewart discussed coming out as queer and the effect it had on her career. "I think I just wanted to enjoy my life. And that took precedence over protecting my life, because in protecting it, I was ruining it. Like what, you can’t go outside with who you’re with? You can’t talk about it in an interview? I was informed by an old school mentality, which is — you want to preserve your career and your success and your productivity, and there are people in the world who don’t like you, and they don’t like that you date girls, and they don’t like that you don’t identify as a quote unquote ‘lesbian,’ but you also don’t identify as a quote unquote ‘heterosexual.’ And people like to know stuff, so what the fuck are you?”

“I have fully been told, 'If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.'" but Stewart said she doesn’t "want to work with people like that."


New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

Well Met

Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him?

The faire is Simon's family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn't have time for Emily's lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she's in her revealing wench's costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they're portraying?

This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can't seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.

Johnny Depp’s Dior Ad Co-Star Tanaya Beatty Speaks Out, Encourages Him to Donate to Native Cause

Follow up this post

Beatty’s character, “the maiden,” is described in marketing collateral as a “suggestive feminine presence, febrile and sensual,” evoking negative stereotypes about Native American women.

Beatty was hesitant to take on the role and felt conflicted during filming, “witnessing as a company blatantly disrespected indigenous culture.”

“When we filmed it, I could only hope that it would start the conversation it now has. My intention is not to shame Dior or call out Johnny Depp. The issues are far bigger than any advertisement. And having worked with them, I do believe Dior — though misguided — had every intention of showing indigenous culture in a beautiful light while giving jobs to some Indians in the process. And… perhaps I’d even encourage a certain perfume company and a certain beloved pirate to make a donation as well. Just sayin."

Beatty went on to detail some of the indignities she has suffered as an actor of Native descent
"On set, I’ve had my hair touched, been told I am too native looking, not native looking enough, been asked to be naked, been told I need more fake blood on my face to look like I’ve been really raped, been touched inappropriately, been called slurs, and been told by someone that they didn’t know natives still [existed]. Throughout the history of Natives in film, we’ve been made a spectacle. Marginalized, fetishized, used as a backdrop."

In a New York Times interview, Linda Hamilton, 62, Reveals She's Been Celibate for 15 Years:

Ariana Grande is suing Forever 21 for lookalike ad campaign

Ariana Grande is suing Forever 21 for a whopping $10 million. She claims that the company used her name and likeness to promote its products and build buzz around its Riley Rose beauty brand.

Forever 21 approached Ariana about a potential partnership around December 2018.
The proposed endorsement deal never came to fruition because the amounts that Forever 21 offered to pay were insufficient for an artist of Ariana's stature.

A single Instagram post by Ariana is well into the six figures.
She commands in the mid-seven figures to over eight figures for longer-term endorsement deals.

Forever 21 allegedly falsely suggested Ariana’s endorsement by hiring a lookalike model and posting photos of that model in clothing and accessories that resemble clothing worn in Ariana’s music videos.

512704.jpg Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

If any American fictional character of the twentieth century seems likely to be immortal, it is Lorelei Lee of Little Rock, Arkansas, the not-so-dumb blonde who knew that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Outrageous, charming, and unforgettable, she’s been portrayed on stage and screen by Carol Channing and Marilyn Monroe and has become the archetype of the footloose, good-hearted gold digger, with an insatiable appetite for orchids, champagne, and precious stones. Here are her “diaries,” created by Anita Loos in the Roaring Twenties, as Lorelei and her friend Dorothy barrel across Europe meeting everyone from the Prince of Wales to “Doctor Froyd” – and then back home again to marry a Main Line millionaire and become a movie star. In this delightfully droll and witty book, Lorelei Lee’s wild antics, unique outlook, and imaginative way with language shine.
