Julianne Hough felt she did not 'deserve' the life ex Ryan Seacrest gave her


During an Instagram Live with Valeria Lipovetsky, Julianne said she was going through an "identity shift" after a breakup in 2013. She dated Ryan Seacrest from 2010 to 2013.

"It was 2013 and I had just got out of a relationship that was very high profile," Hough said. "I was on private planes and yachts and living in a very, very well-off house. My life was pretty different from where I grew up."

She added that she left the relationship because:

'I wanted to create that for myself because I kind of felt like I didn't deserve it. Like, I didn't earn that, so now I need to go and create that for myself.'


Would you give up a relationship with a rich celeb because you feel you don't deserve it, ONTD?

37 TV Episodes That Are So Perfect, People Still Think About Them To This Day

- "Free Churro" from BoJack Horseman, S05E06.
"The whole episode is a eulogy and I wasn’t sure if the format was going to work well, but honestly it’s so captivating to watch BoJack basically come to terms with his abusive mom in this speech. It’s brilliant."

- "Swan Song" from Supernatural, S05E22.
"The episode was originally supposed to be the final episode of the show, so they really went all out. It's dramatic, emotional, and incredibly well-written. If the show did end here, it would have been a fantastic final episode."

- "Everyone's Waiting" from Six Feet Under,S05E12.
"The Six Feet Under finale is not only an incredible episode, but it is still the most perfect ending to a series that I’ve ever seen."

- "Hush" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, S04E10.
"'Hush' from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is phenomenal. Almost an entire episode with no dialogue, and Buffy and Riley each find out who the other really is. It's so great and one of the strongest of the series."

- "The Fight" from Parks and Rec, S03E13.
"The episode is such an ensemble masterpiece. It's perfect from beginning to end, but the part when they are all drunkenly talking to camera is exceptionally amazing. It’s even great right down to Jean-Ralphio getting the rhymes wrong."


what tv episode do you think is perfect??

'Whatever historical liberties The Crown takes in its fourth season are easily forgiven thanks to the sheer power of its performances - particularly Gillian Anderson's imposing take on The Iron Lady and newcomer Emma Corrin's embodiment of a young Princess Diana.'

HBO, Melissa McCarthy Donating Money to Evangelical Group With Anti-LGBTQ and Anti-Abortion History

HBO Max announced a holiday-themed promotion surrounding McCarthy’s upcoming film “Superintelligence”
The campaign “will highlight and donate $20K to a different good cause daily for 20 days while encouraging others to lend their support along the way”

One of the groups that HBO Max and Melissa McCarthy are giving $20,000 to has a history of harsh anti-LGBTQ and anti-abortion stances.

The group is Exodus Cry, a Sacramento-based Christian organization that describes itself as “committed to abolishing sex trafficking and breaking the cycle of commercial sexual exploitation.”

The group’s CEO has a history of inflammatory rhetoric towards homosexuals and abortion. He once referred to homosexuality as “an unspeakable offense to God” and compared abortion to the Holocaust. 

The Evangelical group wants to ultimately abolish the sex work industry entirely. It has targeted the adult entertainment website PornHub, which it has accused of proliferating in sex-trafficking.


Amber Heard says she'll return for Aquaman 2

But Heard says such claims are all wet.

Elon musk claims COVID tests are bogus, rising conspiracy theories

The scientist/businessman/real life super villain, claims to have undergone 4 times the COVID test, after experiencing flu-like symptoms, with half of them coming out positive and half negative, questioning the validity of the tests and of the reported infected numbers worldwide.

His tweets have fueled conspiracy theories among his followers, like the big reset conspiracy (claiming a forced restart in global economy, society, culture and depopulation, enforced by the elites), how the virus was a planned pandemic for trump to lose the elections or the more widespread one of the virus being a hoax.

Kylie Continues Her Reign as Princess of Pop and Sets New Chart Record

Another day, another example of the magnificence of Kylie—the recipient of the Order of Australia and the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire; Chevalier of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres; member of the ARIA Hall of Fame; seller of 70+ million records worldwide; maker of 27 certified records; Guinness World Records-recognized for having the most consecutive decades with top five albums in the UK; singer of the most-played track of the 2000s; breast cancer survivor; noted philanthropist for cancer, earthquake relief, abused children, and AIDS; and undisputed Princess of Pop.

With the release of her smash hit, no-skips album, DISCO, takes the top spot on the UK charts with 55,000 chart sales—the biggest opening week of 2020 so far. DISCO is the star’s eighth UK Number 1 album and Kylie’s biggest opening week in 10 years, since 2010’s Aphrodite.

This means Kylie has become the first female artist to score a Number 1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart in five consecutive decades—in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s, and ‘20s.

This new Number 1 album means Kylie also now surpasses Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard, and George Michael in the all-time league of acts with the most UK Number 1 albums.

And, in case you haven't figured it out yet, even before this record-breaking news, BBC published a piece called "Why Kylie Minogue is pop’s most underestimated icon" so you'd best head over and educate yourself. As Rufus Wainwright says, "[Kylie] is the gay shorthand for joy."


What's your favourite song from DISCO?
Also, who else caught the part in the article about Dame Shirley Bassey being the first female artist to claim a Top 40 album in seven consecutive decades? Big charts week for some fantastic icons!

John Mulaney chats to Seth Meyers about ghosts, joins Late Night writing team

Death positive prince John Mulaney joined Seth Meyers to complain that ghosts are only brought up during election time and not given proper attention the rest of the time. He goes on to argue for "paranormal consistency" and, much like OP, thinks we should be talking about ghosts all the time.

It was also revealed this week that Mulaney has joined the Late Night team as a writer where he will hopefully continue to write more ghoulish interview bits.

To quote Mr. Mulaney....ever seen a ghost? Feel free to turn this into a spooky post.

David Fincher signs a 4-year deal with Netflix + has things to say about Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker

- He told French magazine, Première, that he signed an exclusivity deal with Netflix for the next four years. Doesn't necessarily mean directing, could be producing, for example

- Once again says there will be no 3rd season of Mindhunter

'Mank' arrives on Netflix on December 4

- Says Hollywood has turned its back on innovative filmmaking while Netflix is pushing the medium forward. Studios don't want anything that will not give them 1 billion in return, leaving middle-budget movies behind

- Joker wouldn't have been made if not for The Dark Knight's success

- Mentions the comparison of Joaquin's Joker with Travis Bickle and Rupert Pupkin (Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy), and how the movie's idea is to "trap him in a betrayal of the mentally ill, and trot it out for a billion dollars"

ONTD Original: The Amerification of Craig David’s “Born To Do It”

While most artists who make it big in one part of the world may break big in another, it’s more often done roughly at the same time, with little changes done to the rollout.
Tonight we’re focusing on the debut album of English R&B crooner Craig David, and the U.S. release a year later.
The album would be a smash hit in Europe and spawn 4 hit singles. About a year later, Craig would start the promo trek all over again for North America. Changes were made.

Christopher Nolan Says Fellow Directors Have Called to Complain About His ‘Inaudible’ Sound


talking about the Interstellar sound design

“We got a lot of complaints. I actually got calls from other filmmakers who would say, ‘I just saw your film, and the dialogue is inaudible.’ Some people thought maybe the music’s too loud, but the truth was it was kind of the whole enchilada of how we had chosen to mix it.”

“It was a very, very radical mix. I was a little shocked to realize how conservative people are when it comes to sound. Because you can make a film that looks like anything, you can shoot on your iPhone, no one’s going to complain. But if you mix the sound a certain way, or if you use certain sub-frequencies, people get up in arms.”
