New Demi Lovato Song "Sorry" Leaks



Fans think the song (or demo, as it were) was written & recorded in 2017 before it was scrapped. As for the singer, she's been self-isolating with her family and her new boyfriend, Max Ehrich. The two were recently photographed going grocery shopping together wearing masks and latex gloves, and have appeared on each other's Instagram lives.



As is true for many musicians right now, there's no word on when she'll be releasing new music.

Ellen DeGeneres Faces Backlash for Comparing Quarantine to Jail



During an at-home live show from her sprawling mansion in Los Angeles, Ellen DeGeneres openly admitted that for her, quarantine has been similar to jail.

"This is is like being in jail, is what it is," she said in a (presumed) attempt to be funny and relatable. "It's mostly because I've been wearing the same clothes for ten days and everyone in here is gay." She then clapped her hands and laughed with glee at her own joke. You can watch the clip here.

The general public was not having it, rightfully mocking and berating Ellen for her callous "joke," especially when all over the country and the world, prisoners are dying of the virus without medical attention, healthcare workers are putting their lives on the line to save lives, and many "essential workers" are being are essentially being forced to work during a pandemic without sick leave or health insurance.

For those who have been following the latest on the washed-up talk show host, this is far from the first time she's been awful, nor will it be the last.

Alanis Morissette opens up about breastfeeding, being an empath, unschooling her children


Alanis Morissette and rapper Mario "Souleye" Treadway are the parents of son Ever Imre, daughter Onyx Solace, and son Winter Mercy.

Why did you want to appear on the cover of this magazine while breastfeeding?
Because I love women. I love moms so much. If I talk about it too much, I’ll start crying. I just think moms are so selfless day in and day out—women are just killing it all the time. And they are so often quietly suffering, or not-so-quietly suffering, and still going—functioning sufferers. And if there can be even one moment of respite that my humor around it or my validation of it can help—that’s why I did it. Plus, I love education and teaching.

You’ve said you’re a highly sensitive person (HSP). Would you share more about that?
About 20 percent of humans have a highly sensitive temperament—it’s a trait. It’s like having brown hair. A nonsensitive temperament will walk into a room and pick up 50 pieces of information. A sensitive person will walk into a room and get 500 pieces of information. So is there any question as to why highly sensitive people get overstimulated really quickly? It doesn’t mean we can’t contain it, but we might go a little crazy. Then, of those people who have highly sensitive temperaments, an even smaller percent are empaths.

You practice unschooling with your children—can you explain what that is?
Unschooling, for me, is child-led education. So if there’s some agenda like, “Let’s play with these magnet tiles,” and my daughter is like, “F--- those tiles. I want to put glitter on that thing and cut the tree and put the thing,” boom—we do that. I basically get inside their eyeballs. I’m constantly watching their eyes and what they’re pulled toward, and then we do the deep dive. My husband and I create pods all over the house—here’s where the spelling area is, and here’s where the fake animals are. There’s probably a better definition of unschooling, but there’s no rigidity to it.

Twin Peaks Turns 30




  • Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer) remembers how much the role of Laura, a victim of sexual abuse and incest, meant to viewers. Women would come up to her telling their stories or thanking her for her portrayal. Lee feels Fire Walk With Me was Laura's voice being heard.

  • Co-creator Mark Frost notes Twin Peaks is the story of a terrible tragedy and had ABC known up front it was about a girl who was a victim of incest, it never would have been greenlit.

  • Frost and creator David Lynch began working on the Showtime revival series in 2012 and for a year didn't tell anyone, even their wives.

  • Lee knows the meaning of the final scene of the revival but won't reveal it because she wants viewers to come to their own conclusions. She would love to continue the revival but Frost thinks it's the perfect ending.






  • Indiewire goes into the lasting impact of Twin Peaks, 30 years later (the pilot aired April 8th, 1990). Creators of Riverdale and Veronica Mars have given Twin Peaks as an influence.

  • Notes Laura Palmer and the vibe of location is the essence of the show.

  • While Indiewire notes "Some “Twin Pinks” fans view [the revival ending] as a cliffhanger that demands resolution, but in many ways it’s the only ending “Twin Peaks” can have. Laura was doomed in the original “Twin Peaks” narrative. Carrie is doomed in an alternate one. Evil wins no matter the timeline" they suggest Lynch's message is that fighting evil is more important than a victory.



Happy Twin Peaks day!

Playing video games could deform humans



Since the World Health Organization recognized video game “addiction” as an official psychological disorder, people have wondered how prolonged gaming could transform our bodies, for better or worse. Canadian gaming site Online Casino recently compiled a handful of those theories and mocked up a sketch of what avid gamers could look like in 20 years. The final result is surprisingly grotesque.

“Meet Michael, a visual representation of the future gamer. From sleep deprivation and dehydration, to lack of vitamin D, digital eye strain, and ‘PlayStation thumb’ — these are just some of the physical implications of spending hours online, in a gaming chair, away from sunlight and physical activity.”

Like working on a computer for hours or leaning over a desk at your job for eternity, prolonged video gaming has been proved to worsen your posture and damage your spine and neck. But the rendering takes things much farther: an avid gamer will get a massive indent in their skull from wearing headphones, bald patches from a lack of sunlight, hairy ears from a lack of air circulation, “Nintendo arthritis” from excessive controller use, swollen ankles from lack of movement, and a myriad of other problems.

Some of these symptoms are possible, especially from excessive, long-term, and serious gaming. More than anything, a lot of these issues are a result of not taking care of yourself — something gamers are capable of doing, and many already do. These can be avoided by doing the obvious things: eating healthy foods, drinking water, fixing your posture, taking breaks to stretch, and walking outside every once in a while.

In Are You Fucking Serious News: Tori Spelling is charging $95 for virtual meet and greets



The scary movie actress recently drew criticism for charging fans $95 for a virtual meet and greet, with many expressing disappointment at the price tag amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Nobody asked her husband's opinion but he gave his 2 cents anyways saying, "There are numerous celebrities out there that post stuff and influencers, and they're out there making money every single day," he added. "But no, let's drag Tori Spelling. Let's give her a hard time."

He also went to say, "All the studios, everything is shut down. She has no way to work like everybody else. She has no job to go to. So, why can she not work from home and do a live meet and greet with fans and give them some light and love and have some fun?"

ONTD Original: The Best Show You Aren't Watching, Quarantine Edition -Kim’s Convenience

My darlingsssSSss, is the quarantine breaking your spirits? No need to fear, ssSsnakey is here with the cutest, most wholesome show to entertain you.

Today’s Recomendation
Kim’s Convenience



(pic source)

Genre: Comedy
Length: 30 mins.

Why Should  I watch this show?
Just do it, trussSSt me.
This is a feel good show about an adorable family who runs a convenience store in Toronto. The parents emigrated from Korea and settled in Toronto, Canada. The show explores family dynamics, life as a minority, and how different minorities interact with each other.  All the characters are great, but here one highlight to convince you to spend your time with the Kims:

  • Appa/ Mr Kim

This actor and the scriptwriters take something that usually is portrayed as a racist negative stereotype – “OK See You!”  and the accent- to some new levels of adorableness (if that isn’t a word, it should be). Appa comes off as a real, 3d character, with all its flaws and merits, almost like a society leader you might say. At the beginning of the series he is estranged from his son, Jung. Will they reconnect? You gotta watch the show for it.

Honorable Mentions: Pastor Nina and her accidental gossip. And everyone else. Just watch thisSs ssSSshow.

Where can I watch it?

  • CBC

  • Netfilx (not everywhere I think?)

  • Your usual places that sSsnakey won't say


This show has been renewed for two more seasons, yay! (Source) For those of you who are not watching this show yet, you might have heard of it  while discussing the cast for Shang-Chi in the MCU (ONTD post here)
ONTD, what a week, uh? I hope you're all well and safe. Who is your favourite character? Do you also drop hot gossip like Pastor Nina?

Who Was The Eleventh Person Voted Out On Survivor: Winners At War?



The eleventh person to be voted out of Survivor: Winners At War and sent to Edge Of Extinction was...

[Spoiler (click to open)]Adam!!

Long-ish write-up. Sorry guys.

The episode started off with Michele ranting about how she was left out of the vote. She claimed that she had always wanted Wendell gone, and was furious that no one told her. Girl, what? You betrayed your alliances twice for that guy. I guess they all saw through that.

Over at EoE, Parvati and Danni found the next advantage. It was a 50/50 coin. Whomever they would sell it to could flip the coin during tribal- if it landed on heads, that person would get immunity. Parvati decided to tell everyone she found it, and share any food she’d buy with the buyer’s Fire Token(s).

During the Reward challenge, it was Kim (captain), Ben, Tony, Sarah and Sophie versus Tyson, Adam, Tony, Nick, Jeremy (Captain). Denise wasn’t chosen because according to these idiots Adam and Nick are better athletes. Right. Assholes. The team with all the women (and Ben) won the challenge. Sarah decided to give her spot up to fellow Trump supporter Nick... because it was his birthday and they’re all children so birthdays matter in this game. Where’s Rodney when you need him?

Adam wasn’t buying her move, as he pointed out that Sarah stabbed all of her alliances in the back during her past seasons. Sarah, in her confessional, admitted it was just an act of kindness, but then negated that claim by saying it was the right move for her, and everyone should learn from her. No such thing as a selfless good deed, amirite? (Learn from actual selfless Queen Parvati). Tony straight up told her it was a mistake. Nick also confessed that he didn’t feel like he owed her anything and didn’t trust her either way. I mean... you’re both Trump-loving Republicans, what did you expect Sarah?

Michele found the 50/50 coin in her bag, priced at 4 Fire Tokens. She bought it, going from holding the most tokens in the game, to having none. During the immunity challenge, it came down to Kim and Ben, with Kim winning the necklace and the Fire Token.

Tony’s plan was still to vote out the “hyenas” of the game. AKA the people he thought were lesser threats. The majority alliance’s plan was to split the votes between Nick and Adam, with Michele as the backup vote. Tyson thought it was a fantastic idea to tell Nick everything, and they revealed their plan in front of Denise. Denise then told Kim that the smaller alliance’s vote was going on Sarah. Tyson then realized Adam was more dangerous, so the vote was back on him? I think? Tyson, what are you doing? Ben wasn’t sure what was going on, so he interrogated Adam for more information, but Adam refused to say anything.

Everyone ran around revealing to everyone that everyone’s name had been brought up. For a bunch of winners these people were off the damn rails. During Tribal, chaos ensued. No one was certain what would happen. Whispering started almost immediately.

Adam and Ben decided to have at it out loud, while the rest continued whispering. Adam told everyone he felt they were all voting for him now, and no one told him otherwise. He decided to take a shot at the symbol at the podium, which didn’t move. But Jeff humoured him anyway, then declared it wasn’t an idol.

The votes were read, and the eleventh person voted out of Survivor: Winners At War was Adam! He tossed his Fire Token in Denise’s bin as he headed to EoE.

Official trailer for Caitlin Moran's “HOW TO BUILD A GIRL”




From Caitlin Moran's novel of the same name, HOW TO BUILD A GIRL follows Johana Morrigan, a bright, quirky, 16-year-old who uses her colorful imagination to regularly escape her humdrum life in Wolverhampton and live out her creative fantasies. Desperate to break free from the overcrowded flat she shares with her four brothers and eccentric parents, she submits an earnestly penned and off-beat music review to a group of self-important indie rock critics at a weekly magazine. Despite being brushed off initially, Johana clamors to the top of the 90s rock music scene by reinventing herself as Dolly Wilde – a venerable, impossible-to-please music critic with an insatiable lust for fame, fortune, and men. It isn’t long before the rapid pace at which Johana’s life is changing becomes overwhelming and she runs face-first into a devastatingly real, existential crisis: Is this the type of girl she wants to become? Or does she need to start over and build again from the ground up?

Starring Beanie Feldstein, Alfie Allen, Paddy Considine, Emma Thompson and Chris O’Dowd, the film is released on demand on May 8, 2020 (USA).
