Kendall Jenner talks about the hardships of nepotism and name recognition in her career



Kendall Jenner talks about how she used to remove her last name when she went to castings (undoubtedly leaving casting directors wondering who the mysterious woman named Kendall with no last name was) because she didn't want to be attached to her family name. Says people are prejudiced against her and she's had to work hard to get where she is.

Harrison Ford injures shoulder on Indiana Jones 5 film set



In we figured that would happen news;

Harrison Ford (78) has suffered a shoulder injury while rehearsing a fight scene for the latest Indiana Jones film.

The fifth and final movie in the series (OP: heard that before) has been filming in the UK recently and is due for release in 2022.

Film studio Disney did not disclose the severity of Ford's injury, but said the filming schedule would be adjusted over "the coming weeks".

It is not the actor's first accident on a film set. While filming a Star Wars movie seven years ago, he was crushed by a hydraulic door of the Millennium Falcon, the craft piloted by his character Han Solo. He also injured his knee during filming of The Fugitive, which required surgery.

Joshua Bassett Talks About Accidentally Coming Out, Living His Truth and Olivia Rodrigo

The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actor reveals to GQ that he wasn't joking during the interview when he mentioned Harry Styles.

Joshua tells GQ, "Even if there are consequences, I would much rather deal with consequences and live my truth than live in fear."

"I just hope that this generation can feel comfortable, confident, and safe talking about sexuality without needing to be a box and without needing to have it all figured out."

He also says "It makes me emotional. I didn't necessarily have that when I was younger. I didn't have a me saying stuff like this. I'm very at peace. I'm celebrating Pride all month long."

"I was a very emotional kid," he explains, up until age 11 or 12, which is when he feels that most young men learn it isn’t okay to be vulnerable. "I was constantly yelled at for crying. I would spend every night being like, "Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry."

He also praises his co-star Oliva Rodrigo's debut album Sour and her overall success.

"[Everyone] is asking me about Sabrina and Olivia. Why don't we focus on these women for who they are? Let's focus on the art that they're making and how great they are instead of their relationship to a boy."

Wolf Alice Continue to Release Videos for Every Track From New Album "Blue Weekend"

British rock band Wolf Alice recently released their third album, Blue Weekend, which has been hailed as one of the best albums of the year by critics, according to Metacritic, and also by me. They have so far released videos for a whopping eight tracks, including singles "The Last Man on Earth" and "Smile," and most recently released the video for chapter V (track five), "Safe From Heartbreak (if you never fall in love)."



[Chapter I - The Beach]

[Chapter II - Delicious Things]

[Chapter III - Lipstick on the Glass]

[Chapter IV - Smile]

Chapter V - Safe From Heartbreak (if you never fall in love) see top of post!

[Chapter VI - How Can I Make It Ok?]

[Chapter IX - The Last Man on Earth]

[Chapter X - No Hard Feeligngs]


The band also took to The Current to perform stripped down versions of three news songs, "How Can I Make It Ok?," "Smile," and "The Last Man on Earth."



source | source | source | source | source | source | source | source | source

I don't think calling this a "rock" album is entirely truthful, since they play around with a lot of different genres and overall, I found the album pretty chill and shoegaze, but it's honestly so good so I wanted to share everything from it.

Trailer for 'The Harder They Fall'


Netflix gives a trailer to something that looks....good? Huh?

Starring Jonathan Majors ("Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania"), Idris Elba ("Concrete Cowboy"), Zazie Beetz ("Deadpool"), Regina King ("227", but I say that with love and admiration), LaKeith Stanfield (Questionable Clubhouse chatrooms), Delroy Lindo ("Da Five Bloods"), Edi Gathegi ("For All Mankind"), R.J. Cyler ("Power Rangers 2017"), Danielle Deadwyler ("Watchmen") and Deon Cole star in The Harder They Fall.

Looks to be about black cowboys (cowfolk?) robbing trains, which, very cool.

In select theaters and Netflix this fall.

Steven Spielberg's production company announces a multi-year partnership with Netflix



Amblin announced a huge deal to produce multiple new feature films for Netflix each year.

“At Amblin, storytelling will forever be at the center of everything we do, and from the minute Ted and I started discussing a partnership, it was abundantly clear that we had an amazing opportunity to tell new stories together and reach audiences in new ways.

“This new avenue for our films, alongside the stories we continue to tell with our longtime family at Universal and our other partners, will be incredibly fulfilling for me personally since we get to embark on it together with Ted, and I can’t wait to get started with him, Scott, and the entire Netflix team.” – Statement from Steven Spielberg


Spielberg previously spoke against allowing movies released on streaming platforms being eligible for Academy Awards, but has since changed his mind, recently saying that he "wants people to find their entertainment in any form or fashion that suits them. Big screen, small screen — what really matters to me is a great story and everyone should have access to great stories."

So, what's going on with John Boyega?



-Early in June, John Boyega left the Netflix film Rebel Ridge which was in the middle of production in New Orleans
-At the time, Netflix said Boyega had to leave the film for "family reasons," and that they look forward to continuing the partnership with John’s UpperRoom Productions company
-Deuxmoi posted a submission saying John quit because he didn't like the script and called him a "brat" who threw a "hissy fit"
-An additional person on the Deuxmoi subreddit said "His Netflix movie is about to get shut down (or him replaced) due to his partying and assholery" and "Major douche and he trashed the gorgeous house he was living in" (This was posted more than a week before he left the movie)
-Yesterday, it appears that Boyega's Twitter account was unverified and his tweets from the last seven months were deleted. ETA: It looks like John actually hasn't tweeted anything since November and Twitter might be unverifying accounts that haven't been active in the last six months. So coincidence?
-Also yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter published an article saying that "Boyega simply walked away from the production with filming underway...the filmmakers only discovered when they looked for him at his hotel and found that he had checked out"
-Boyega's agent commented in the article, “I can categorically say that these rumours are completely untrue. People will form their opinions often rooted from boredom. As stated John unfortunately left due to family reasons which in truth is none of anyone’s business except his own."
-Dozens of crew members have been let go from the production as they look to recast John's role and start again in the fall or next year

So....what's going on with John Boyega? IDK. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ONTD Original: Jenna Ushkowitz appreciation thread

My first post on ONTD :)

Jenna Ushkowitz played original glee club member Tina Cohen-Chang on Glee. During the first three seasons, her character was blatantly neglected, getting little to no storylines or songs to herself. After both Uhskowitz and fans of the show started to speak up about her treatment, the writers decided to completely change Tina’s personality and commit character assassination for the remaining 3 seasons, all the while subjecting her to a constant barrage of racist “jokes”. And yet, Ushkowitz has always remained an extremely optimistic, supportive and bubbly person who never seems to harbor ill-will towards anyone.

Today, we are giving her singing voice the love and appreciation it never got on Glee. Jenna doesn’t often get mentioned as one of the greatest voices on the show (unlike Lea Michele, Amber Riley or Naya Rivera) but that’s because it was never showcased properly. Girl has pipes, and on top of that, versatility. Not only does her voice suit many styles, she can actually make her timbre sound noticeably different depending on the genre or song she’s singing. Here are some examples (I’ll add highlight timestamps)

New poster for ‘American Horror Story: Double Feature’



A new poster for the upcoming season has been released.

This season will have two smaller stories this time around; I’m guessing the poster is referring to that. Murphy said the first story takes place by the sea so I’m thinking mermaids for the first half (the second half seems obvious).

SNL's 'Stories from the Show': cast & crew talk about shooting the new season during the pandemic


• In a new video, cast and crew of SNL talk about their experiences making a live show, during the pandemic.

• Some of the cast members talk about how they were wary of shooting the new season in New York with a live audience. Others expressed some relief in the normalcy and routine after the difficulties they had making the show remotely for the last three episodes of their 2019-2020 season.

• Table reads and cast meetings that normally take place in the office spaces backstage were held inside studio 8H, with the cast and crew fully masked up until showtime. Cast talks about how the early shows were hard on the morale in the studio and that those working on the show were sometimes the only people in the 30 Rock building.

• Cast was not permitted to socialize with each other outside of table reads, rehearsals, and video shoots. The rest of the time they were asked to stay in their dressing rooms and had to be frequently tested for COVID. They also had "COVID Cops" on set who would monitor the cast so they were social distancing properly (they were parodied in Dan Levy's monologue)

• Chris Redd talks about shooting the first taped sketch of the season (Bottom of Your Face with guest Megan Thee Stallion), where they experienced a COVID scare and the set had to be evacuated and cleaned before they could return to set.

Britney Spears' Online Social Media Manipulation Continues

Fresh after the singers powerful testimony in court yesterday, Britney Spears allegedly took to her social media to address her statements.


The post includes a random quote by Albert Einstein along with a super lengthy caption attempting to imply that everything is fine.

"I just want to tell you guys a little secret 🤫 … I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I’ve posted … my life seems to look and be pretty amazing … I think that’s what we all strive for !!!! That was one of my mother’s best traits … no matter how shitty a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok. I’m bringing this to peoples attention because I don’t want people to think my life is perfect because IT’S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL … and if you have read anything about me in the news this week 📰 … you obviously really know now it’s not !!!! I apologize for pretending like I’ve been ok the past two years … I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn’t want to capture there Instagram in a fun light 💡🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!! Believe it or not pretending that I’m ok has actually helped … so I decided to post this quote today because by golly if you’re going through hell … I feel like Instagram has helped me have a cool outlet to share my presence … existence … and to simply feel like I matter despite what I was going through and hey it worked … so I’ve decided to start reading more fairy tales 👑🧚‍♀️🦄 !!!!!"

Britney does not have full control of her social media. Under the conservatorship basically everything including spending her own money needs to be approved first.

This is manipulation at its finest as her team still continues to paint the narrative to her fans and the world that everything is fine behind closed doors.

* Might come back as a movie but probably not
* Kenya apparently exited his $100 million Netflix deal back in January for a deal with ViacomCBS. I saw the news about this cuz Kenya went on record today saying Netflix was the new CBS. He’s interested in stuff too highbrow and edgy for Netflix apparently…okay. He got equity in BET via this deal.

Spotted: Lonely viewers w/out HBO Max headed over to TheCW to watch revival Pilot xoxo - Gossip Girl



-The revival of Gossip Girl may be streaming on HBO Max next month but that doesnt mean that you have to subscribe to watch the pilot.

-As part of their new strategy to maximize their revenues, HBO Max/TheCW have teamed up to co-host the series premiere and Gossip Girl will air the day after on TheCW.

-A similar strategy was used for Stargirl when it aired on DC Universe though it ultimately became a CW original something that may happen to Gossip Girl if it returns for a 2nd season.

-TheCW attempted to persuade HBO Max to fund Green Arrow and the Canaries for its first season before bringing it back to the network full time for a 2nd season but HBO Max passed.

-Is this the future of streaming?

Throwback Thursday: Remembering Jessica Albas 'Dark Angel' 20 years later



-James Camerons 'Dark Angel' celebrated its 20th anniversary a couple months ago and would introduce Jessica Alba and Jensen Ackles to the world.

-Dark Angel was inspired by the Y2k conspiracy where the world would end at midnight 2000 with technology crashing due to the year change. It centered around a genetically enhanced superhuman prototype, Max Guevara, who, as a child, escaped from a covert government military facility along with 11 others who were all being raised and trained to be super-soldiers. Max battles corruption in post-apocalypse America and searches for her genetically enhanced brothers and sisters, all of whom were scattered in the aftermath of their escape.

-Ironically enough, the show is set 2019 and went through 2021 and featured a diverse cast that included an out and proud lesbian character, Original Cindy, and even had an episode that centered around Max's boss proudly dating a transwoman.

-The show would run from 2000-2002 on FOX before being renewed for a 3rd season only to be canceled 72 hours later the day of Upfronts as the network decided it would rather go forward with Joss Whedons 'Firefly' that would last 1 season and couldn't afford both shows.

-It originally aired on Tuesdays where it was a ratings winner even though it was during the days where FOX shows would go on random hiatus and be preempted due to news/sports/awards shows. For whatever reason the network moved the show to Friday where it was a death slot and ratings took a nosedive.

-A video game even was made when it was cool for tv shows to get adapted to gaming (Xena, Buffy were among other tv shows that got the video game treatment)

-Jessica Alba famously dated and got engaged to her co-star Michael Weatherly during the shows run but the two would break up.
