For the First Time in 20 Years O Magazine Will Not Feature Oprah on the Cover




In order to highlight black women who have been lost to police brutality, O Magazine will not have Oprah on the September 2020 cover. Instead there is a portrait of Breonna Taylor, the dedicated 26 year old EMT, who was murdered by police during a no-knock drug raid. The issue will also highlight other black women who have been victim to police brutality. No charges have been filed in the death of Breonna Taylor, just so happens that one of the Paul Blart mall cops is galavanting in Florida of all places.

edit: oop my mini write-up deleted but
- Lena Dunham was confirmed covid-19 positive in March
- Initially her symptoms mirrored her other chronic conditions; achy joints. The next day fatigue set in and her fever spiked. Shortly after her body "revolted" and other symptoms developed like lack of taste, numbness, nerve pain, hacking cough, shortness of breath, pounding headaches and more.
- After a month of treatment by her private doctor, she tested negative but she still experienced numbness and a unending migraine
- She acknowledges the privilege she has to have private healthcare and a flexible job, and asks people to be "sensible and compassionate" to prevent the spread of disease.

The Umbrella Academy cast on their time-bending second season



At its heart, Umbrella is about a dysfunctional family of misfit superheroes, trained to exploit their powers in service of justice, but all a little underdeveloped when it comes to basic love and kindness.

Gael García Bernal to play gay wrestler



The Mexican actor has been cast to play Cassandro the exotic, Mexican gay pro wrestler, famous for his colorful attires and mannerisms, in an upcoming biopic.

However, many people feel a straight actor shouldn’t play gay roles since they take opportunities from gay actors to play their own stories.

Gael has played LGBT roles before, in Pedro Almodóvar's "Bad Education" (2004)

ONTD Original: Actors turned Musicians: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly



-Starting off this list with The Good: Before she won an Oscar and was Captain Marvel, Brie was singing about skipping P.E, mean girls, and the like.

-Actors are known to dabble in many fields, some make sense, and some don't.

-For our entertainment, here's those who have either embarrassed or enlightened themselves in the process of making their 'art'.

[The Good]
Ashlee Tisdale: He Said, She Said was a move away from the squeaky Disney persona.



Hilary Duff: 'Come Clean' was her first Top 40 hit. Iconic moment when her rival at the time Lindsay Lohan sang along to it.



Zooey Deschanel: Hipster, twee, and alternative. Check, check, check!



Ryan Gosling:



Jack Black:



Marion Cotillard: Before Dior dumped her unceremoniously, she debuted a cool song for them.



Hyun Bin:



Ji Sung:



Rashida Jones: Sang background vocals for 'Songs about Jane' (Maroon 5)



Kim Ah Joong: Cover of Blondie's hit song.



Faye Wong: Red Bean song.



Jennifer Lopez:



Will Smith:





[The Bad]
Vanessa Hudgens:



Lindsay Lohan: 'Rumors' and 'Confessions' were bops but between her rl messy persona and auto-tuned songs have made her stuck in the past.



Keanu Reeves:



Maggie Cheung: Legendary Chinese actress who has since retired. She tried but this song is just a waste of her talents.



So Ji Sub: Declined a 'Show Me the Money' cameo. Said he can't rap, at least he's aware.



Priyanka Chopra:



Scarlett Johannson: Its fine, just sounds like NyQuil. zzZZ...




[The Ugly]
Jared Leto: (Some bops but alleged skeevy creepy persona)



Johnny Depp: (Abusive Drunk)



Jeremy Renner: (Brought to you by popular demand) Is known to be a deadbeat father.

Jordan Fisher incites stan war between Harry Potter and Star Wars fans




“To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” actor and singer Jordan Fisher tweeted his love and preference of Harry Potter over Star Wars. Fisher did at least acknowledge the obvious in that both are not the same. “But actually, two very different tales,” he wrote. “Two very different casts of characters, arcs, action, romance, etc etc etc. These two things can’t be compared, but HP is a massive part of the reason why I became creative in the first place.” Many in the comments argued why they shouldn’t be compared and others argued which is better and why. Meanwhile some “cancelled” Jordan and others brought up Lord of the Rings and Star Trek. It’s a slow Sunday night, why not? I have no horse in this.

Dan Levy talks about "soul-crushing" experience of interviewing celebs on the red carpet



Star of "Schitt's Creek" and son of Eugene Levy, Dan Levy recently spoke to Seth Meyers about his difficult early days as a host of MTV Canada.

“It takes a very particular person to not be soul-crushed by the experience of interviewing on a red carpet,” he said, referring to his time on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards.

“And the two-hour carpet ended, and I remember, like, walking around a corner completely dazed, and like burst into tears,” he added. “I was like, ‘I can’t do this again. I just don’t have it in me.’

27 Storylines On TV Shows That People Could've Done Without



5 out of 27

-Michael coming back after he had presumably died on Jane the Virgin.
"He died and it took so long for her to grieve and move on that bringing him back for like three episodes seemed forced."

- Eleven finding her siblings in Stranger Things.
"It came out of nowhere and was so unnecessary and never mentioned following that episode."

-Luke discovering he had a daughter in Gilmore Girls.
"It didn't add anything, it was just time filling."

-Debra getting over her stepbrother being a serial killer and realizing she had romantic feelings for him in Dexter.
"It was super out of the blue and never went anywhere except for giving me a creepy feeling, especially knowing that the actors were married at the time in real life."

-On Glee, when Rachel gave up her dream Broadway role in Funny Girl to star in that really bad TV show that got canceled.
"While it was nice to see Rachel Berry finally fail at something and not have it fixed by a diva tantrum, the plot didn't make sense. The whole goal of her character was to be on Broadway and she idolized Barbra Streisand. It ruined the show for me."
