22 New and Upcoming Horror Books to Keep You Up at Night



Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver



Release: April 4 (2019)

About: 1906: A large manor house, Wake's End, sits on the edge of a bleak Fen, just outside the town of Wakenhyrst. It is the home of Edmund Stearn and his family – a historian, scholar and land-owner, he's an upstanding member of the local community. But all is not well at Wake's End. Edmund dominates his family tyrannically, in particular daughter Maud. When Maud's mother dies in childbirth and she's left alone with her strict, disciplinarian father, Maud's isolation drives her to her father's study, where she happens upon his diary.

During a walk through the local church yard, Edmund spots an eye in the undergrowth. His terror is only briefly abated when he discovers its actually a painting, a 'doom', taken from the church. It's horrifying in its depiction of hell, and Edmund wants nothing more to do with it despite his historical significance. But the doom keeps returning to his mind. The stench of the Fen permeates the house, even with the windows closed. And when he lies awake at night, he hears a scratching sound – like claws on the wooden floor...

Wakenhyrst is a terrifying ghost story, an atmospheric slice of gothic, a brilliant exploration of the boundaries between the real and the supernatural, and a descent into the mind of a psychopath.

- Following the news of the casting for Grishaverse TV show adaptation for Netflix, Leigh Bardugo's newly released novel and Adult debut 'Ninth House' has been picked up by Amazon to be adapted in a TV series
- Bardugo will write the adaptation and executive produce
- From a Goodreads review, the book contains lots of sensitive content designed to "fuck us up a little" (the author's words): TRIGGER WARNING [Spoiler (click to open)]"rape of a child, sexual assault under influence of a magical drug, drowning, heavy violence, gore, drug addiction, overdosing, death, suicide, blackmail, self-harm, and forced consumption of human waste."
- Ninth House's synopsis from Goodreads: "Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive."

Elton John Slams 'The Lion King' Remake: "They Messed The Music Up"



-Elton John believes Disney messed up the music for the Lion King remake. (Which included stats like Beyoncé and Donald Glover)

Speaking with GQ magazine, the outspoken legend said:

“The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up. Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact. The magic and joy were lost. The soundtrack hasn’t had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year. The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box-office success.
I wish I’d been invited to the party more, but the creative vision for the film and its music was different this time around and I wasn’t really welcomed or treated with the same level of respect. That makes me extremely sad. I’m so happy that the right spirit for the music lives on with the Lion King stage musical.”

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators

In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood's most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family.
All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance they could not explain -- until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.

This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it's the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement.

Cardi B and Chance the Rapper warn that Trump will win 2020



Cardi B and Chance the Rapper are warning that President Trump will be re-elected.

While promoting their Netflix competition series 'Rhythm + Flow' on the expediTIously podcast, the rappers discussed their views on the upcoming election.

Chance stated, "I think Trump is going to win again at the next election because he's got the biggest base."

Cardi B agreed, "He does. I believe it. Just because due to the fact that every single time I don't see nobody saying they love a Democratic candidate. There's no candidate that people are saying like we love, we want them to win."

Chance said voters are "getting tricked into thinking that we have a choice" as the reason "why we keep getting presidents that we don't want."

"There's two parties that pick who they want to run for office, and then there's a bunch of lobbying and money that gets thrown around, and eventually they come out and say, 'This is who our leader is.'"

Cardi follows up saying conservative voters aren't concerned about policies and instead vote with their feelings.

"A lot of people vote with feelings in America and a lot of their feelings is racism and religion. Every single time he always talk about how he want to take away Medicare and sh-t like that... a poor white man that's getting Medicare is not even caring that he's saying that, he just cares that he hates Mexicans and he want to get rid of them. So [they're] going to keep on voting for them."

Sarah Paulson on playing Nurse Ratched and Linda Tripp


"Ratched was complicated and dark and not what I expected, and totally terrifying. It’s more psychological than murder-scary where somebody jumps out from behind you. It’s sort of a meditation on someone’s psychological strengths or weaknesses. What I found really interesting is that people prescribe such villainy to her and the truth of the matter is that she really was a product of her time. Part of the conceit of the movie is that you fall in love with all the men and their friendship, but you never want the killjoy coming in to say, 'We have to follow the rules.' But she was, in her way, trying to offer them help, just with devastating consequences. [But] there was no mustache-twisting. There was a real steadiness and a stillness to her that I like to try to steal."

On playing Linda Tripp in FX's ACS: Impeachment series, "There’s no way for me to approach playing her as a way of thinking how to redeem her. I don’t know that it's redeemable, some of what she did to her friend. But I am interested in what causes people to behave in ways that make no sense and that lack a moral compass and that have a real suspect intentionality. I’m curious about what makes people like that do what they do. And not in an effort to reveal her to be Glinda the Good Witch — I am interested in understanding the psychology of the 'why?'" Paulson also said that she would be gaining some weight for the role because "I didn’t really feel like it would be a great idea for me to come to work putting on some faux suit and be all pumped up with prosthetics and not be able to move my face or feel the feelings that she might have been feeling."

Anna Wintour Questioned Rihanna About Marriage and Babies, But Rihanna Doesn't Mind



Rihanna is on the cover of U.S. Vogue this month. She did a Q&A with Anna Wintour... and Anna's first questions were about Rihanna getting married and having a baby.

But Rihanna is cool with it.

“A lot of women get very defensive. It’s personal. It’s our bodies. And, of course, it’s our time. And it’s not necessarily everyone’s dream to be a mom, but it’s mine, so I’m fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know.”

Jeremy Renner accuses ex-wife of sending his nudes to custody evaluator

Renner accuses Pacheco of tracking down racy photos of their 6-year-old daughter Ava’s nanny.
He claims Pacheco is obsessed with sex, which he says is evidenced in her artwork.
Renner is reportedly concerned that their child is being exposed to “such dark, graphic, sexual material on a daily basis.” Pacheco has featured several nude sculptures on her Instagram page.

Lizzo Accused of Second Plagiarism Claim for “Truth Hurts” by Another Songwriter



Lizzo is being hit with another plagiarism claim over her smash single, "Truth Hurts." 

Songwriter and producer, Justin Raisen posted a video to his Instagram in which he compared "Truth Hurts" to a single called "Healthy" that he allegedly wrote with Lizzo and others in 2017. 

Raisen's complaint is centered around "Truth Hurts'" now-famous opening line—"I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100 percent that bitch"—as well as the fact the two tracks share the same melody.

This is the second time Lizzo has been accused of stealing portions of "Truth Hurts." In February 2018, British singer, Mina Lioness, says she first tweeted the line "I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100 percent that bitch"
