While promoting “Outside the Wire” with co-star Damson Idris, Mackie opened up to Extra’s Nate Burleson about his late friend Chadwick Boseman. Mackie explained:
I met Chad in ‘98, ’99, so I've known him, I knew him for a long time… What was great about Chad… unlike everybody else today, Chad kept his circle close to his vest. He kept his world very private… That's one thing, one of the things, that we had in common.
Our time at work was our time at work, but our time at home was our time at home, and we didn't allow the two to cross because that's what keeps you grounded. That's what you know if you look at the relationship he had with his wife, you look at the relationship he had with his family. You know, Chad and I we were country boys… You come home and, you know, your mama make them collard greens and cornbread, ya know? She make them smothered turkey wings, some potato salad. That's home.
Mackie then talked about why he can't bring himself to see Chadwick in Netflix's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom saying:
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom holds a very special place [Mackie starred as Ma’s nephew in the 2003 Broadway revival of the show]. With the relationship to that, and the relationship to August Wilson, and my relationship to Chad, I haven't been able to pull myself to the point emotionally to be able to sit and take that experience in. Because I wouldn't be able to watch it for the performance and the art, it would just be too emotional of a process for me.
In an email statement, he claims to have anticipated the claims to come out after threats and an extortion attempt were sent to him earlier this year.

She writes: "To me, being on the subway with a book, heading toward a meal, I honestly can’t think of anything better, with the exception of sitting in the theater or watching the New York City Ballet. It’s a vacation — you are literally transported — and I miss it so much it hurts. It’s not just our love for those places but everything that surrounds it: all those servers — all their families who are counting on them to send money home. It goes on and on and on."

Well, it looks like Riverdale gave us all the 90s feels this time. With Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz named the Prom Queens, they danced to Mazzy Star's Fade Into You, before all hell broke loose and the Talking Heads' Psycho Killer took over. (Totally harshing on the theme of this post, but you know, Riverdale isn't always the most consistent show. They couldn't pick a song from Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer?)
DISCLAIMER: All of the prom scenes aren't on YouTube yet, so I found music videos instead.

Produced and filmed during the pandemic Gamboys is the Phillipines' first BL drama, it's about two gamers falling in love over the internet, first seen on Youtube over the summer and then re-edited and released internationally on Netflix at the end of 2020. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking and made me believe in love again. Everybody watch it!
Patrick Stewart had 'long conversations' with Kevin Feige about playing Professor X in the MCU, but he's unlikely to do it because of 'Logan' — '[Hugh Jackman and I] made the decision that we were saying goodbye to our characters'— Fandom (@getFANDOM) January 21, 2020

- Patrick Stewart has confirmed that he has had many conversations with Kevin Feige about joining the MCU and reprising his role as Professor X. He also confirmed he ended up saying No because he felt his character had a great closure in 'Logan'.
- This fuels recent rumors about other actors returning to the MCU to reprise past Marvel roles due to the introduction of the Multiverse. Among the recent ones... [Spoiler (click to open)]Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina are supposed to reprise their roles from previous Spiderman films. Michael B. jordan is expected to reprise his role as Killmonger in Black Panther 2; Ryan Reynolds has confirmed he'll be playing Deadpool in the MCU. Chris Evans is rumoured to play Captain Hydra in a new project and to reprise his role as Human Torch. Evan Peters' Quicksilver is supposed to appear in Wandavision. Charlie Cox (Daredevil) has already filmed his scenes in Spiderman 3, Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is expected to join She Hulk and Finn Jones (Ironfist) apparently has a cameo in Shang-Chi's fight with Fin Fang Foom.

Virtual supermodels in the fashion industry. Digital models like Miquela Sousa and Shudu Gram are becoming increasingly popular on social media and are turning into influencers, social media celebrities. #Fashion #VirtualModels
Digital models like Miquela Sousa and Shudu Gram are becoming increasingly popular on social media and fashion. Netting its creator $ 10 million a year, especially in the pandemic, the interest of brands in virtual models has increased.
Miquela Sousa, along with real life supermodel Bella Hadid, was on Prada and Burberry campaigns, released a hit single and gained 3 million followers on Instagram. Miquela is not a real person, but the money she makes, is. The growing community of virtual models is currently leaving $ 300 billion in revenue to the fashion industry.

Y porqué no existe Shudu? Porque es digital.

Shudu Gram, also a fictional model, is the creation of British photographer Cameron-James Wilson. South African Shudu was used for Rihanna’s beauty brand Fenty’s Ellese and Balmain campaigns. She walked in a Swarovski dress at the BAFTA Awards last year. While Blawko, another digital avatar, modeled Kanye West’s Yeezy brand shoes. She earned her creator $ 1000 for each social media post and collaborated with Porsche and Ikea. Posed for Japanese i-D magazine with real models to promote Kanebo Cosmetics products.
“There is currently a huge increase in the use of virtual models. The problems with traditional photography have really pushed brands to look for alternatives,” said Michael Musandu, co-founder of virtual modeling agency Lala land.
One factor contributing to their rise is that they are cheaper compared to the real ones. Easy to use and eliminates the need for makeup artists and stylists. Also, they are always available and can “travel” anywhere, anytime. They can wear virtually anything and don’t complain, since they don’t have mood changes us humans have. And since the pandemic, they’re safe to walk for fashion houses now that health and event restrictions are in place due to the corona virus.
Will these virtual models make a significant change in fashion or are they just a fad, ONTD?

it's one thing to have a ~mean/dumb movie critic~ character in your movie (we're used to it!) but it's another thing entirely to make a whole movie about how you got a bad review once and how that means nobody understands your art https://t.co/TzcYlsvQa3— karen han (@karenyhan) January 22, 2021

Katy Perry was approached by a swarm of Spanish speaking fans while exiting some place.
During this encounter, fans asked her if no one taught her how to say “wig” in Spanish because reasons, after she said no, they proceeded to give her a mini lesson in one of the most beautiful languages in the world. After several tries, she finally was able to pronounce it, albeit with a strong accent.
Wig in Spanish is peluca.

Brie Larson to Star in Apple Series ‘Lessons in Chemistry’ From ‘Erin Brockovich’ Writer (EXCLUSIVE) https://t.co/LyMz8IWnJ9— Variety (@Variety) January 22, 2021
Brie Larson is set to star in and executive produce the drama series “Lessons in Chemistry,” which has landed a straight-to-series order at Apple in a competitive situation.
The series is based on the upcoming debut novel from author, science editor, and copywriter Bonnie Garmus. Set in the early 1960s, “Lessons in Chemistry” follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a society deeming that women belong in the domestic sphere, not the professional one. When Elizabeth finds herself pregnant, alone and fired from her lab, she musters the ingenuity only a single mother has. She accepts a job as a host on a TV cooking show, and sets out to teach a nation of overlooked housewives – and the men who are suddenly listening – a lot more than recipes, all the while craving a return to her true love: science.
She previously starred in shows such as “United States of Tara” and “Raising Dad.”
-Fate: The Winx Saga has been released on Netflix, even though you wouldnt know it if you checked their twitter page.
-S1 consists of 6 episodes.
-The adaption is in the same vein as Riverdale which took a bubblegum franchise and made it into a serious/dark live action adaption.
-The fairies dont have wings due to "evolution" and to keep budget down, magic is limited per episode w/very basic fashion which doesnt make the world of Winx feel very magical.
