Nashville Police did not receive any reports of threats aimed at Big Machine or their employees

On Friday, it was reported that Big Machine offices in Nashville closed early because employees received death threats from Taylor Swift supporters (as discussed in this post).

A Nashville radio station, 1075 The River, contacted Nashville Police to find out if they received any reports of threats to Big Machine or their employees. Police confirmed that there were no reported threats or incidents.

They discuss the story on their Woody & Jim morning show here (from around the 19:20 mark). The hosts speculate that employees may have had a shortened day because of CMA Award festivities the night before.

Emilia Clarke Says She Was "Pressured" to Perform Nude Scenes As to Not "Disappoint" Fans

  • While on professional tool Dax Shepard's podcast Armchair Expert, Emilia Clarke talked about a project in which she was pressured to go nude. She hadn't agreed to the nudity in advance.

  • She said of the incident: “I’m a lot more savvy [now] with what I’m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing. I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up’, and they’re like, ‘You don’t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans’. And I’m like, ‘Fuck you.’

  • She also talked about being overwhelmed by the nudity on Game of Thrones, saying in part: "I’d come fresh from drama school, and I approached [it] as a job – if it’s in the script then it’s clearly needed, this is what this is and I’m gonna make sense of it… Everything’s gonna be cool."

  • She said between Game of Thrones and other projects, nudity was a constant and she had to reason with herself it was necessary and she'd just get on with it after crying in the bathroom.

  • She says she was lucky most of her nudity was with Jason Momoa, who made her feel comfortable and safe. She said after he had told her ‘No, sweetie, this isn’t okay,’ she realized she could set boundaries on how much of her body she was willing to show.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

The Queen of Nothing

He will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan's betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict's bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity...

ONTD Roundup

Dick Clark Productions deny Big Machine Label Group joint statement

Reps from DCP have denied taking part in the statement released by BMLG.

“At no time did Dick Clark Productions agree to, create, authorize or distribute a statement in partnership with Big Machine Label Group regarding Taylor Swift’s performance at the 2019 American Music Awards. Any final agreement on this matter needs to be made directly with Taylor Swift’s management team. We have no further comment.”

For context, BMLG claimed to have come to an agreement with Dick Clark Productions (who is producing the AMAs ceremony). According to the statement from Big Machine, the agreement “approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms" - meaning Taylor would be able to perform.

Vegan customer sues Burger King for contaminated Impossible Whopper cooked on the same grill as meat

A vegan customer is suing Burger King for $5 million dollars for selling him an Impossible Whopper that was allegedly “contaminated” by meat by-products, according to claims in a new class action lawsuit.

Plaintiff Phillip Williams says he bought an Impossible Whopper at a Burger King in Atlanta, Ga., believing it to be completely meat-free. Williams, who has a strict vegan diet, ordered the Impossible Whopper without mayonnaise from Burger King’s drive-through in August 2019.

He received his burger without mayo, as requested. It was after eating his whopper that Williams says he discovered that the patty was covered in meat by-products. He accuses BK of cooking the meat-free patties on the same grill where beef patties are made, and of misleading customers by marketing the Impossible Whopper as meat-free and vegan.

The company describes the Impossible Whopper as, “100% Whopper, 0%” beef on its website. They also note that customers looking for a meat-free option can request a “non-broiler method of preparation.”

The Impossible Whopper has been a major success for the chain, giving them its best quarter in four years.

A BK spokesperson said the company does not comment on pending litigation in a statement to several media outlets.

Noah Hawley to Direct Next 'Star Trek' Film

  • Paramount has hired Noah Hawley (Lucy in the Sky) to direct the fourth installment in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek film series. It is expected that the film will star the major players of the first three films, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana.

  • The third installment, Star Trek Beyond, debuted in 2016, and the fourth installment was supposed to be in production by now.

  • An earlier version was set to be directed by SJ Clarkson, who would have been the franchise's first female director. The plot involved Chris Pine's Captain Kirk meeting his father, played by Chris Hemsworth, via a time travel plot. But negotiations fell apart, and that version was shelved.

  • No plot details are available for this version as of yet.

  • This is entirely separate from the rumored Quentin Tarantino Star Trek.

Carolina Herrera trashes style influencers

Translated from Spanish

Latin designer and style icon, doña Carolina Herrera, attended the ‘Latin American Fashion Summit’ in Cartagena, Colombia. During said event she was asked about her actual thoughts on style influencers.

She answered “they’re not the style of fashion, but the style of money”. She continued “it doesn’t matter if they wear the clothes if at the end of the day, clients don’t buy them, since they don’t posses their own style ”. Adding that even though influencers bring publicity, it is not sustainable and end up making a brand cheap.

The Morning Show EP: Critics are "Apple haters"

When Apple TV+'s new series The Morning Show debuted at the beginning of this month, the critical reviews were not kind.

Executive producer and director Mimi Leder - along with writer Kerry Ehrin - didn't really mince words when she heard just how bad they were: “When those reviews came in I didn’t know what show they were watching. I thought they were nuts. The reviews felt like an attack on Apple."

She went on to say that they felt very pre-meditated and that is not fair attacks on the tech company were thrown at the shows direction.

I guess it's Apple fault the show takes itself way too seriously, gives Reese Witherspoon too many over-the-top acting moments, and cast Steve Carell.

Anyway, OP recommends watching the superior Apple TV+ show: Dickinson.


#SoundsAboutWhite: Julia Roberts Was Once Suggested to Play Harriet Tubman

Today in "Ha, wow, they....they really did that.", it was revealed by Gregory Allen Howard ("Harriet" screen writer) that way back in the year 1994, they were working on another Harriet Tubman biopic.

“I was told how one studio head said in a meeting, ‘This script is fantastic. Let’s get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman." Howard said.

For those of you who do not know, Julia Roberts is a white woman.

Pictured: No melanin.

"When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn’t be Harriet, the executive responded, ‘It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.'”

"So long ago" being around 1849. 170 Years ago. And an even shorter distance in 1994.

As we know, Roberts was not cast (I wonder if she was even asked...), and today, we have "Harriet", starring Cynthia Erivo, a black British woman.

Well, that's a little closer, I suppose.

Jawbreaker director talks films 20th anniversary

-Jawbreaker which starred Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz, and Judy Greer recently turned 20!

-Director Darren Stein takes a look back at the film and the cult status it gained.

-He based the concept off of real life Valley girls who would kidnap their friends on their birthdays but decided to give it a bit of a twist by having the friend accidentally die.

-Every major studio passed on it but Sony's home video division decided to take it on and gave him a small budget of $3.5 million to make the film making it the first film that they actually produced as opposed to just buying films.

-Sony attached Rose to the film which helped get it off the ground while Rebecca/Julie auditioned for their roles. Judy was a last minute addition as the original actress tapped to play Fern dropped out 1 week before filming started to do a television pilot.

-He wrote the infamous "boyfriend gives Popsicle head" scene for himself as it was the type of gay scene he had wanted while he was growing up watching movies.

-He did try to reboot the film as a television series but it never made it past the pilot stage, but he is currently attempting to make it into a musical.

-The film recently came out on blu-ray to celebrate 20 years.
