ONTD ORIGINAL: 5 youtube videos (essay?review? idk what to call them) that I love.

So, I know no one ask for this but I have nothing to do so why not make an ontd original, and at first I wanted to do a top 10 adventure time episode post but then I was like no just post 5 videos of video essay (or reviews or whatever I should call these videos?) because hey, I like to share thing, so why not share this! Okay so why do I re-watch youtube videos, well mostly because I really liked them and therefore can re-watch them over and over again and while I do re-watch many different types of videos I decided to focus on films/tv-shows because that makes the most sense, this is a pop-culture webpage after all, so yeah, bye hope you like me list <3




Everything Wrong With "Everything Wrong With The Cabin in the Woods"

why i like it: because it shits on the youtube channel "cinemasins" and The Cabin in the Woods is one of my favorite (modern) horror films.

The Story of “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton




Vanessa Carlton wrote “A Thousand Miles” in her childhood home as a teenager. Little did she know the song would become an international smash hit, a film-soundtrack favorite, and would be repurposed by new artists and the internet for the next 20 years.

VICE meets Vanessa Carlton, “White Chicks” actor Terry Crews, and others responsible for making the song the indelible hit still widely adored today.

ONTD Detectives: In the video, Vanessa says “A Thousand Miles” is about a guy she had a crush on while attending Juilliard. She’s asked who and declines to answer because he’s “a famous actor.” Who attended Juilliard with Vanessa Carlton that went on to become famous? 🧐 Reddit is guessing Wes Bentley or Glenn Howerton, amongst others.

Carrie Ann Moss on ageism in Hollywood



Moss recalled her experience of being treated differently the moment she turned 40.

"But literally the day after my 40th birthday, I was reading a script that had come to me and I was talking to my manager about it. She was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no, it’s not that role [you’re reading for], it’s the grandmother.’ I may be exaggerating a bit, but it happened overnight. I went from being a girl to the mother to beyond the mother. You don’t feel like you’ve aged much and suddenly you’re seeing yourself onscreen. I would look at these French and European actresses and they just had something about them that felt so confident in their own skin. I couldn’t wait to be that. I strive for that. It’s not easy being in this business. There’s a lot of external pressure.”

Usher Under Fire For Giving Strippers Fake USHER BUCKS Money



Ursher was put on blast today when a dancer (IG user @B_FBabyy) blasted the R&B legend in her IG story for tipping her with play money. Apparently, Usher paid the entertainer with $20, $100, and $1 bills with his face printed on them that were obviously fake.

The pissed dancer let out her frustration on social media, writing:

“Exactly why we stay away from celebs most of the time! They suck!!! Cheap Asf”

“So disrespectful this is foul! Working so hard to get nothing in return this is a joke! Their job is to entertain take your cheap a** back home!!!”

He posted about his USHER BUCKS last week.

White Sox pitcher credits his tarot reader Ruby for his good outlook



- Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks says his tarot reader helps him deal with his good and bad days, like blowing a save the other night.

- Honestly, a much healthier attitude than that of the plethora of closers who react violently to bad outings, occasionally breaking their hands on innocent walls and lockers.

- The 32-year-old Australian was signed to a 4 year/$54 million contract, so Ruby wasn't far off.

Harvey Weinstein is suffering in prison


In today's edition of News to Brighten Up Your Day:

Harvey Weinstein is truly rotting away while locked up in prison. His lawyers say hes technically blind and in need of an eye operation, has lost four teeth and may have more removed, has spinal stenosis and can't walk without a walker, and has heart problems and sleep apnea.

These health issues were laid out today as his lawyers were in court objecting to Harvey possibly being extradited to Los Angeles, where hours earlier, the city indicted Harvey on 11 counts of sexual assault. The extradition decision will not be made until April 30.

Last year, Harvey was convicted of rape and sexual assault in New York and was sentenced to 23 years in prison. These new counts could add another 140 years to his sentence if convicted.

Justin Timberlake pushed for Janet Super Bowl stunt trying to outdo Britney Spears



In a new and very interesting piece of nostalgic tea, Janet Jackson's Super Bowl stylist has said that it was JT who pushed for the infamous wardrobe malfunction moment (timed to go with the lyrics of "Gonna have you naked by the end of this song" from Rock Your Body) in an effort to outshine his ex's much talked about pop culture moment from the 2003 VMAs when she locked lips with Madonna.

But that's not all, the stylist also said that the original reveal was going to be Janet in a pearl G-string which was cancelled in favour of the career-ending nipple ring.

MTV Admits That its Portrayals of Mental Health can be Damaging



Shocking news: reality shows' depictions of mental illness are not always great. Maybe even more shocking news: the president of MTV says that ViacomCBS is going to try to roll back the negative depictions of mental illness.

In the future, the conglomerate, which owns MTV, VH1, Paramount+, and Comedy Central, will try to show a "fuller context" of mental health "instead of simply exploiting it.”

Predictably, some people are whining about political correctness and others are worried that future TV shows will be less entertaining.

can reality shows be entertaining yet be respectful of mental illness?

Yes
42(23.1%)
Maybe
39(21.4%)
No
69(37.9%)
Probably but I hope there will still be some mess.

Will Smith and Antoine Fuqua will pull production of 'Emancipation' from Georgia



At this moment in time, the nation is coming to terms with its history and is attempting to eliminate vestiges of institutional racism to achieve true racial justice,” Smith and Fuqua said in a statement. “We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access. The new Georgia voting laws are reminiscent of voting impediments that were passed at the end of Reconstruction to prevent many Americans from voting. Regrettably, we feel compelled to move our film production work from Georgia to another state.”
