Heidi Klum says 16-year-old daughter Leni wants to be a model



-Leni visits Heidi on the set of her show and "wants to do" what Heidi does
-Heidi used to turn down modelling requests when Leni was younger, to keep her out of the spotlight and having a normal childhood
-Heidi says Leni is driving now, which means she's ready to become a nepotism model (How very "she goes to business meetings" of her. Kylie Jenner's impact!)
-The source clearly used an old photo of Leni, because they also point out she never fully shows her face on Instagram

Weird Filipino cola ad goes viral



A surreal TV advertisement for RC cola has become viral for its weird concept. In it a kid is distressed over him being adopted for having four glasses embedded in his back (?), the mother then proceeds to uncover their family secret by taking her head off and revealing she’s actually a bottle of the cola drink (??), proceeding to pour herself on the back glasses of his son, so all the family can enjoy the refreshing beverage (???).

The ad has gone viral since hitting the Internet, with even some pieces trying to explain the bizarre commercial.

Sienna Miller Reflects on Ex-Fiancé Jude Law's Cheating Scandal: 'I Was in So Much Shock'



In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Sienna Miller discusses her split from then fiancé Jude Law in the wake of his cheating scandal. Jude Law was caught having an affair with his children's nanny back in 2005.

Part of her interview:

“It was really hard," Miller said. "And the other thing was, it was at the height of all that paparazzi madness, and in London where there was an epidemic of bad behavior. They knew where I would be every night.”

In 2005, Miller broke off the engagement after news of Law’s affair with his children’s nanny, Daisy Wright. Miller and Law separated in November 2006 and got back together in 2009. The couple broke up for good in February 2011.

Run The World' Trailer: Starz's Harlem-Set Comedy On Four Friends From 'Living Single' Creator



Run the World is the story of a group of Black women in their 30s – vibrant, fiercely loyal best friends – who work, live and play in Harlem as they strive for world domination. At its core, it’s an unapologetically female show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.

The series stars Amber Stevens West, Andrea Bordeaux, Bresha Webb and Corbin Reed as its core four cast members. Tosin Morohunfola and Stephen Bishop are also series regulars.

The eight-episode, half-hour original series is coming to Starz in 2021, though we sadly don't have a premiere date quite yet. The creative minds behind the show have stacked résumés—including showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser, who has worked on Living Single, Black-ish, and Dear White People. Patricia Field of Sex and the City fame is helping with costuming.

Viggo Mortensen takes exception to the criticism of Green Book




While promoting his film Falling (on which he wrote, directed, scored, and is starring in), Viggo Mortensen revisits the criticism of Green Book (the film won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2019) in an interview with the Independent:

“Much of the criticism that was leveled at that movie was not only unreasonable, but it was inaccurate, mendacious, and irresponsible. It’s based on a load of bulls--- and an axe to grind and little else. Does it affect what I’m doing, or how people perceive me as an actor? Maybe it does. But I can’t really do anything about that.”

He also says: “It’s become a cliché to say, ‘Is this movie going to be the Green Book of this year?’ Green Book has become a pejorative.”

Comedian David Sedaris draws backlash for demanding the right to fire employees



Comedian and author David Sedaris did a bit on CBS Sunday Morning where he proposed the idea of a "citizen's dismissal" where customers can fire employees for poor customer service.

The segment drew heavy backlash on social media, with many calling it tasteless considering the amount of service industry employees struggling under the pandemic.

Japanese Music Post: End of the Year Edition

The end of the year is coming!  The 2020 year end charts are out!  What were the big hits in Japan this year?  The answer is: A bunch of songs that actually came out last year!  In this post I'll focus mostly on more recent releases from popular artists and try to avoid a lot of overlap with my last post, while still trying to review the year a bit.

The biggest hit to come out in the last few months is...

LiSA- Homura


It's the theme song for the Demon Slayer movie which is Japan's second highest grossing film ever.

Weekend Box Office: Universal dominates a quiet weekend


Another quiet weekend at the box office. Universal dominated, thanks to its VOD deal with theater chains, taking 6 of the top 8 spots.

The Croods 2 stayed #1, but dropped 55% to $4.4 million. That was followed by Half Brothers at 720k, Freaky at $460k, All My Life at $350k and The War with Grandpa at $329k.

The only other new release was a theater-play for The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corlone, before it hits home media on Tuesday. It took $52,000 from 179 theaters. Critics say the reedit a much better edition then the original but still doesn't come close to the first two. Its Metacritic score is currently a 75, a 15-point increase from its orginal version.

Next week sees Minari get a limited theater release while The Prom (Netflix) and Wolfwalkers (Apple) see streaming debuts.
