'Horror Fairytale' Netflix Film 'Bulbbul' Out Now



Bulbbul is a 'horror fairytale' (or 'Bengali Gothic') ostensibly about a chudail (female demon/witch), but actually rooted in the real horrors of patriarchy and women's oppression.

The film is produced by Anushka Sharma, Bollywood actress and co-owner of Clean Slate Productions with her brother. They have been consistenly investing in offbeat material and centering women's stories (NH10, Phillauri), also giving opportunities for non-nepotism actors/actresses and new directors.

The film's director is Anvita Dutt. This is her first film as a director.

Bulbbul's main character of the same name is played by Tripti Dimri, who is new to the industry (this is her 3rd film). She is not a nepotism actress and she is simply mesmerizing in the film.

Noname Deletes Tweet Comparing Beyoncé To Civil Rights Activist Angela Davis



She wished Davis got the same love as the global superstar – which many found to be an invalid comparison. Seemingly seeing the criticism, Noname initially doubled down on her sentiments.

She wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
Noname expressed a wish that “Angela got the love Beyonce gets.” 
“It’s cool seeing all the Angela Davis threads denouncing the need for idol worship and highlighting how celebrity is a capitalist project which Dr. Davis is fundamentally against, big facts. I still wish the world stopped and listened when she spoke the way it does for others.”

Adele wants you to watch Michaela Coel's ‘I May Destroy You’



I May Destroy You’ is the best thing I’ve seen on British TV for yeaaaarssss!! Go watch it on iplayer right now. It’s wholesome, uncomfortable, hilarious but terribly sad and then awkward...and then it makes you cough a bit for no reason and also makes you go put the kettle on, for no reason. You might pretend you need a pee and then you get a bit itchy, then it makes you ask your girls things you haven’t before. And then makes you want to run out in the street and laugh so hard like mad til you cry for absolute hours! I’ve never felt so many emotions at once! Absolutely fantastic 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Michaela Coel bloody SMASHED it 💫

Chris Evans & Michelle Dockery on a 2nd season of Defending Jacob and the perils of parenting



*As part of Deadline’s Virtual Screening Series, cast leads Michelle Dockery and Chris Evans sat down with Deadline to talk about Defending Jacob’s first season and if there is a possibility for a second season.

*Dockery compared the idea to Downtown Abbey, in that they thought it was over but it came back for more seasons and a film.




*The two actors also talked with Indiewire about the show, including how they brought the perils of parenting to the show even though neither actor has children.

* Evans feels “for the most part, we’d all agree loving deeply is a risk and there’s a gamble involved. You’ve really got to untether yourself and let the let the ocean take you out. But a kid is different because you are the primary caregiver, you’re in charge of their lives. If a marriage falls apart, you can leave. A child, it’s on you. That’s daunting.”

Shane Dawson uploads an “apology” video, is “sorry” for being a racist asshole


[Feo Behind the Cut]



POS YouTuber Shane Dawson has uploaded a 20-minute apology video (ain’t nobody got time for that). He says Jenna Marbles inspired him to film it, of course. Rme. In it he’s “taking accountability” for his past content that many viewers have found offensive, such as blackface and caricatures parodying PoC, his disturbing pedophilia and misogyny.

“I was at least 20 when I started YouTube,” Dawson, 31, explained. “I made the decision to play stereotypes of Black people or Asian people or Mexicans... I said, ‘Oh, this is funny,’ and I put it on the internet.”

“When I say I hate that person, I mean it in the most intense way possible,” he continued. (OP Note: Yawn) “That person was filled with sadness, filled with anger about their own issues, in the closet, constantly projecting on others. ...that person is someone I don’t like seeing.”

Dawson also added he made this video to become “part of a change and not part of a problem,” and went on to claim he would better educate himself and feature more people on his channel other than “white people in trouble.”

“At this point realizing how many people I’ve hurt, or how many people I’ve inspired to say awful things or do anything awful, to finally just own up to all of this and be accountable is worth losing everything to me,” he said.

Unfortunately he isn’t quitting YouTube. But he should.

Alison Roman says Chrissy Teigen was never set to produce her new show

Desus and Mero writer Ziwe Fumudoh has been interviewing folks on Instagram Live, and one of her latest guests happens to be none other than anti-racism expert Alison Roman! During the interview Roman mentioned that Teigen was never signed on to executive produce her show (?!).

"It wasn't the time or place for me to correct that because the issue wasn't—like that felt really petty to be like, ‘Not true. Nuh-uh,'" Roman said.

Ziwe also asks Alison how many black friends she has.

ONTD Original: Gwyneth Paltrow's $75 Orgasm Candle and 3 More SUPER CHEAP Must-Haves on GOOP dot cum



The personification of dry, unseasoned, boiled chicken, Gwyneth Paltrow, hasn't let the mountain of deeply critical work that white people need to be doing to unlearn a lifetime of systemic racism, implicit bias, and racially inaccurate history get in the way of what's really important - herself!

Just in time for us to all die a slow and painful death from coronavirus, Gwynnie has released a follow-up to her smash hit pussy candle, This Candle Smells Like My Orgasm!

Now, does Gwyneth seem like the type of woman who has never achieved orgasm by the touch of a man, and can only truly feel sexual gratification from screaming at maids for poor performance, or watching the personal and/or professional downfall of a younger, fresher ingenue (Hi Lea), of course, but let's humor her in a way the film-going audience hasn't in a good 10 years. So exactly what does Goopsie Daisy think an orgasm smells like? Perhaps a refreshing ocean fish and skim milk smoothie? A musty old towel from the public pool? A DVD screener of whatever Marvel movie she did? No? It smells like tart grapefruit, neroli, and ripe cassis berries blended with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose? ...k.
