I was on instagram when I came across this "Wait. What?" factoid and it works out that he recently released a new mv so I can tie some old and new news together. Because who expected John C. Reilly to father a Freddy Mercury/Ezra Miller hybrid?

Dixie Chicks - Julianna Calm Down (Official Lyric Video)


The Dixie Chicks' album, Gaslighter, was supposed to be released today. Since it was "delayed indefinitely" we got a scrap instead: their brilliant new song "Julianna Calm Down" which is written for their daughters and nieces.

Also, side note, I think the Dixie Chicks are on the verge of rebelling?? The lyric video was posted on their instagram page yesterday for a brief moment, which was deleted and then followed by this post from Natalie (which has also been deleted):

JoJo Releases Fourth Album "good to know"



After years of battling her former record label and struggling to release music, JoJo is back with her fourth studio album - and magnum opus - good to know. The 9-track (11 if you get the CD version with the intro and outro, which are also on YouTube) R&B album is full of lush, sophisticated, production, aggressively sexy and emotionally honest lyrics, and plenty of impressive vocal acrobatics. Many are calling this her best album to date, and even Mariah Carey is a fan.



“I called the album good to know because of everything I’ve learned in the past few years – every piece of feedback, criticism (internal or external), whatever it is – it’s all just information. And it’s all good!” JoJo said. “I’ve been lucky to have the space to reflect on my own journey up to now, and I hope people can take comfort in the fact that I am not anywhere near perfect, and I will never sugarcoat anything. We are all constantly living and learning, and that’s what makes this life so fun.”

She was scheduled to begin her album tour this month, but it got postponed due to COVID-19.

There's a 'Crazy Rich Asians' Sequel Casting Scam, and Director Jon M. Chu is Rightfully Disgusted


  • A user (Alan Baltes) claimed to be casting for sequels to 2018's runaway hit, "Crazy Rich Asians", for parts in "China Rich Girlfriend" and "Rich People Problems".

  • There was also an audition for a Caucasian female role.

  • He asked for a 99$ submission fee through Google Pay or Venmo

  • Chu was tagged in a tweet about it and was disgusted, promptly tagging Warner Bros' legal department, and was blocked by Baltes.

  • The account has been deactivated, also the link to the original press release. Baltes says that no one had paid him.

  • This is also NOT the first time he's done this, as he tried the same thing for "Jurassic World: Dominion".

  • There has been no pre-production for either of the two sequels thus far, not even a script.

Eva Mendes Responds to Fan's Concern That She's a "Single Mom"

https://instagram.com/p/B_lAuXXDXhL


On a recent Instagram post, a fan expressed concern on how Eva Mendes posts about her home life, specifically on how it seems like she does all the work while husband Ryan Gosling does nada. This came after Eva posted about working on three hours sleep to decorate the house for her daughter's birthday.

The fan said in part:

"Seems that the mom are the only ones that are busy with the kids...I mean sometime you seems a struggle single mother, and we know that you have a man, but the way you write, I mean, seems that your husband let the hard job to you and he doesn’t help you."


The comment came after a male fan commented that they felt Eva ignored the good dads out there to focus only on moms. Eva responded with her usual class, saying just because she doesn't mention Ryan doesn't mean he's not there helping:

hi! Thanks for your honest comment. So here’s my very honest answer ...I love women. I’m a girls girl. I love connecting to women. That’s mainly why I have this page. So when I say I’m a “tired mama” and want to connect to other “tired mamas” it’s not about excluding the fathers or other caregivers that do so much. It’s just me connecting to other women but in no way does it de-value what papas do.

And why I don’t talk about Ryan and all the wonderful things he does as a father, is because I keep that part private. I don’t want to involve him or how he parents because I don’t feel comfortable crossing that boundary that I have set for myself. I feel it’s best that I continue to disclose what I’m comfortable with but not Involve him or my kids too much. It’s not about being cagey or weird , it’s just about staying private in a public space. Does that make sense? Hope so. Because this is my honest answer and I really do love connecting to you women. Happy to explain further. Sending so much love ❤️


So Ryan Gosling ain't a weekend dad and Eva continues to have to explain to people that she doesn't want to share her private life on social media.

That is it for this week in Eva Mendes' delightful Instagram follies!

apparently Jimmy was in Almost Famous? They got along well during filming and she was hoping he would ask her out

"Jimmy, if you would have actually made a move I would have totally gone there"

"No you wouldn't have"

"Yes of course!. I remember thinking to myself like, 'Why has Jimmy never made a move?' And then I just kind of realized, 'Oh, he's not into me like that.' I was just like 'Okay, well whatever.' And so, then I met Chris [Robinson]."

Report: J. Crew on the verge of bankruptcy

Multiple sources are reporting that upper-casual chain J. Crew is preparing to file for bankruptcy and could do so as early as this weekend.

The company is seeking $400 million to continue operations and is reportedly $1.7 billion in debt. It wanted its Madewell chain to go public to help pay off some of its debt, but failed to reach a deal with lenders. The pandemic, of course, has only made matters worse, as the company's physical stores have been closed since mid-March.

The company has struggled the past several years after losing its CEO Mickey Drexler and creative director Jenna Lyons with price increases, then price cuts, and then introducing a budget-friendly line that flopped with customers.

Florida Man Dresses Up as The Grim Reaper Warning Residents About Reopening Beaches Too Early



A Florida man and lawyer is trying to put the fear of death into “covidiots” in his state, by dressing up as the grim reaper and hanging around the beach to remind them that the pandemic is not over. Lawyer Daniel Uhlfelder kicked off his “Grim Reaper Death Tour” at Miramar Beach in Walton County, Fla., on Friday, after Tweeting about it last month and after SNL’s Colin Jost mentioned it during Weekend Update.

“I’m here today to try to make a point that we need to — I think it’s premature that we open our beaches,” Uhlfelder said, in an interview with ABC 13 at the beach on Friday.

“It’s too soon and it’s not appropriate,” he said.

His local interview as the Grim Reaper has since gone viral.

Queer as Folk US' 20th Reunion Raises Over $20,000 for LGBTQ+ Centres Around the World


Scott Lowell (Ted Schmidt) organised a 20th anniversary online reunion for the US version of Queer as Folk in support of CenterLink — the Community of LGBTQ+ Centers. CenterLink works to assist new LGBTQ+ centers and strengthen existing ones around the world, including in Canada, the USA, China, and Australia. Lowell hosted the entire four-and-a-half hour reunion special with support from Peter Paige (Emmett Honeycutt).

Other cast members who appeared to reminise about the landmark series included:

  • Hal Sparks (Michael Novotny)

  • Robert Gant (Ben Bruckner)

  • Harris Allan (James 'Hunter' Montgomery)

  • Michelle Clunie (Melanie Marcus)

  • Sharon Gless (Debbie Novotny)

  • Randy Harrison (Justin Taylor)

  • Jack Wetherall (Vic Grassi)

  • Fab Filippo (Ethan Gold)

  • Makyla Smith (Daphne Chanders)

  • Sherry Miller (Jennifer Taylor)

  • Peter MacNeill (Carl Horvath)

  • Rosie O'Donnell (Loretta Pye)

  • and many others…

The reunion also included conversations with the writers, producers, hair & make-up crew (one of the highlights), and even a quick visit from Russell T. Davies himself, the creator of the original UK version!

In the end, they raised over $20,000 from the broadcast alone for CenterLink and there are currently a number of special items connected to the show being auctioned on CenterLink's site. A second auction will go up on Monday and will include items that cast and crew spontanesouly decided to donate during the reunion (including a bunch of Debbie's t-shirts!). Donations are still being accepted here.

I loved every single moment of this entire reunion and made sure I donated. Also, Randy Harrison hasn't aged a day and still looks incredibly gorgeous (plus, he was fantastic in Cabaret a few years back)! For anyone else who watched the reunion, what were some of your favourite moments? And what were some of your favourite moments from the series itself?

Malin Akerman on Why ‘Watchmen’ Was a Turning Point for Her: “I Felt Way Out of My League”



I will say that Watchmen was a big shift because I felt way out of my league on that one. I really struggled because it was such a big film and I really felt like I had no idea what I was doing. I had no training and I was working with these fabulous theater actors who had all the training in the world. I definitely didn’t feel worthy of being there. I felt like I had tricked them into casting me. You know, there was a lot of stuff that I was going through, so it was definitely a shift and I just said, ‘Alright, I can’t just follow now anymore. I have to start making decisions of what it is that I want to learn, what direction I want to go in, what do I like creatively, what do I find fun? I want to put my best foot forward. I don’t want to feel like I’m in that position where I feel like I’m the weakest link in a production’, you know? So yeah, that probably was a little bit of a turning point.”

She continues:

Everyone I was working with was just so darn good – I guess I noticed the difference; I realized that I didn’t know how to prepare for a role and they did, and that was really getting to me
