James Corden’s “Spill Your Guts” Will No Longer Feature Asian Delicacies


  • Earlier this month, a viral TikTok made by Kim Saira highlighted how “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts”—a confessional game where guests must either answer a high-stakes question or eat an unappetizing snack—perpetuates anti-Asian racism.

  • After her TikTok went viral, Saira started a Change.org petition calling for Corden to apologize for the segment on The Late Late Show. As of publication, the petition has more than 45,000 signatures.

  • Corden addressed this backlash for the first time on The Howard Stern Show earlier this month, vowing to give the segment a culturally sensitive makeover. “I don’t know when we’re gonna do that bit again, but when we do we absolutely won’t use any of those foods,” he said, later adding, “Our show is about joy and light and love, we don’t want to make a show to upset anybody.” Instead, Corden suggested that “Spill Your Guts” might feature theatrically unhealthy options like the “pizza covered in cheeseburgers” that was once presented to Vogue’s Anna Wintour, he explained.

Britney Spears' lawyer resigns from conservatorship


A banned source is reporting that Sam Ingham, the lawyer that has "represented" Britney Spears in her conservatorship for 13 years, has filed legal documents asking to be dismissed.

Sources close to the matter say that Ingham is "extremely upset" over Spears' June 23 statement that she was unaware she could petition to end her conservatorship, and claims he "regularly gave Britney options, including requesting that the conservatorship should end, but she never wanted to pull the plug."

The news comes less than 24 hours after it made headlines that Spears' longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, had resigned from his position on the star's "team."

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


Island Queen

Born into slavery on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat, Doll bought her freedom—and that of her sister and her mother—from her Irish planter father and built a legacy of wealth and power as an entrepreneur, merchant, hotelier, and planter that extended from the marketplaces and sugar plantations of Dominica and Barbados to a glittering luxury hotel in Demerara on the South American continent.

From the bustling port cities of the West Indies to the forbidding drawing rooms of London’s elite, Island Queen is a sweeping epic of an adventurer and a survivor who answered to no one but herself as she rose to power and autonomy against all odds, defying rigid eighteenth-century morality and the oppression of women as well as people of color. It is an unforgettable portrait of a true larger-than-life woman who made her mark on history.

Italian ICON, Raffaella Carrà, passes away



The songstress was an established figure in pop culture in Italy, Spain and Latin America, was one of the first women to show her midriff in live television, she openly sang about women sexuality, female masturbation and homosexuality back when those topics were taboo, making her an LGBT icon and also a fashion icon due to her outfits onstage and her trademark platinum blonde bangs. Censored by the Vatican for the choreographies of her hits.

She died at 78 years old of an undisclosed illness and is survived by her longtime partner, Sergio Japino.

Florence said goodbye to her, to the tune of one of her biggest songs, “tanti auguri” (“para hacer bien el amor hay que venir al sur” in Spanish).

DC writers/creators discuss the hot mess that was The New52 reboot



-For those of you who don't know/remember, back in 2011, DC Comics/Dan Didio decided that they needed to revamp their main universe

-Out was majority of their continuity and characterization of characters that they built up from the fallout of Crisis On Infinite Earths and In was younger versions of Superman, Wonder Woman, condensed history of 5 years into most of their careers, etc....and new romances like Superman/Wonder Woman finally becoming a couple.

-The writers were given next to no information regarding the revamp, just that it was a general Year 1 for a lot of heroes.

-Gail Simone was offered to write the Birds of Prey reboot but turned it down after DC editors came to her with a horrible pitch that made no sense.

-Batgirl/Barbara Gordon was banned from wearing glasses, being a librarian, and having her own secret lair. Gail revealed that she had to fight off editorial ideas that were awful such as using magic to heal Barbaras paralysis.

-Marc Bernadin had a horrible experience while writing Static Shock. He was supposed to take over the series with issue 8 and was influenced by Buffy The Vampire Slayer wherein Static would be in high school, have a core set of scoobies that new his secret as a superhero, etc..DC canceled the book before his first issue ever came out which resulted in him only writing 2 issues of the comic.

-Kate Kane aka Batwoman was due to have a big lesbian wedding to Maggie Sawyer but DC banned their heroes from being married as Dan Didio believed that heroes couldnt be happy and have personal lives.

-Overall a lot of the writers did end up enjoying New52 to a degree as it allowed them to do new things with characters, work with top talent, and it was some of their first major gigs but with editorial not having a clear thought out plan made things messy.

-New52 was a success at the time with it giving DC a massive boost in sales and forcing other publishers to up their game.
