In a follow up to this post, former Nickelodeon actor, Drake Bell, has received 2 years of probation and 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to one count of attempted endangering children, a fourth-degree felony, and one count of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a first-degree misdemeanor.
Christina Aguilera gave an interview to People to announce her new collaboration with SweeTARTS, but more importantly she dished about the long-gestating followup to her 2000 Spanish-language album, Mi Reflejo.
"This is a coming-full-circle moment for me," the "Candyman" singer, 40, said. "I actually am reinspired by music all over again, making this album.
"When I listened to my first Spanish record, I love it and I'm thankful for it. I won a Latin Grammy with it, but I listen to the record 20 years later and I'm like, 'Oh, cute, that was baby Christina!' [...] I'm singing with deeper passion and love and respect and experience than I ever have before."
Ben Stephens has never bothered with serious relationships. He has plenty of casual dates to keep him busy, family drama he’s trying to ignore and his advertising job to focus on. When Ben lands a huge ad campaign featuring movie star, Anna Gardiner, however, it’s hard to keep it purely professional. Anna is not just gorgeous and sexy, she’s also down to earth and considerate, and he can’t help flirting a little…
Anna Gardiner is on a mission: to make herself a household name, and this ad campaign will be a great distraction while she waits to hear if she’s booked her next movie. However, she didn’t expect Ben Stephens to be her biggest distraction. She knows mixing business with pleasure never works out, but why not indulge in a harmless flirtation?
But their light-hearted banter takes a turn for the serious when Ben helps Anna in a family emergency, and they reveal truths about themselves to each other, truths they’ve barely shared with those closest to them.
In this post we will take a look at actors from Neighbours and Home & Away who tried their hand at a music career. Some very successful, others not so much and a few with a some bangers but seems they really just didn't care enough to continue expressing themselves through music.
1. The original... QUEEN — KYLIE
Kylie Minogue appeared on Neighbours as Charlene Mitchell from 1986 — 1988.
Her character brought the shows highest ratings ever when 2 million Australians tuned in to see her character get married, 19.6 million tuned in when the episode aired in the UK.
Even before Neighbours, Kylie was recording demos and submitting to talent shows but no one was interested until she became a star thanks to her performance on Neighbours.
Locomotion a cover of "The Loco-Motion" recorded by Little Eva in 1962 and also Grand Funk Railroad in 1974 was Kylie's debut single released in 1987.
Megan Fox talked about her experience trying the drug ayahuasca with her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday. She shared that they took the drug "in a proper setting with indigenous people" in Costa Rica. It sounds like the experience didn't quite meet her "five-star" expectations as "you really are in the middle of the jungle, and you don't get to eat after 1 p.m. You have to walk a very far distance to get your water and you can't shower because they're in a drought." She says despite the difficulties of not showering and vomiting in front of a bunch of strangers, it was a good bonding experience and super intense.
"Everybody's journey is different, but on the second night, I went to Hell for eternity," Fox recalled. "Just knowing it's eternity is torture in itself, because there's no beginning, middle or end. So you have a real ego death."
"It just goes straight into your soul and it takes you to the psychological prison that you hold yourself in," she explained. "So it's your own version of hell, and I was definitely there."
She also said it helped her open up in a way that traditional therapy never has.
- According to actress Jessica Cauffiel (Margot), one of the first endings shown to test audiences, Elle formed a potential romance with Warner's ex-fiancée Vivian Kensington, in which they were shown "in Hawaii in beach chairs, drinking margaritas and holding hands".
- Alanna Ubach (who played Serena) recalled the same ending, but the screenwriters told that they never wrote the scene. whatisthetruth.gif
- Other possible ending included Ellen kissing Emmett Richmond (Luke Wilson).
- Feedback from test audiences, however, showed that the public didn't want a romantic ending:
"We screened the movie two or three times, and every time people didn't want to end it with a kiss. They thought it wasn't a story about [Elle] getting a boyfriend, which was really cool to have people say that." (screenwriter Kirsten Smith)
In celebration of Kelly Clarkson's new daytime talkshow success, and her defeat of Evil Degenerate starting in 2022, it's time to take a deep dive into all of her best "Kellyoke" covers starting with the 1960's! Let's go.
"A Fool In Love" - Tina Turner (1960)
Starting with none other than the great Tinta Turnter's debut single, Kelly puts her own soul into "A Fool In Love" and sets the stage on fire. The single peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot R&B Sides, and peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The record became Tina's first million-seller. Women supporting women! We love to see it.
Well, there you have it! Who knew such talent could have time traveling powers too? What did you think of Kelly's covers, ONTD? Better or worse than the originals? Stay tuned for Part 2 where we travel through the rockin' 1970's with none other than the fabulously talented Kelly Clarkson at the wheel. Bye!
Growing up is a beast. Check out the new trailer for the upcoming all-new original feature film “Turning Red” from Pixar Animation Studios’ director Domee Shi, who won an Oscar® for her 2018 short film, “Bao.” Young actress Rosalie Chiang lends her voice to Mei Lee, a 13-year-old who suddenly “poofs” into a giant red panda when she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS). Sandra Oh voices Mei Lee’s protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, who is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager.
On Tuesday, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese announced a partnership with Brooklyn-based ice cream parlor Van Leeuwen to release a limited-edition pint of mac & cheese-flavored ice cream.

Tom Holland took to Instagram to share his support for Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho after England lost to Italy in the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday night (July 11).
He hit out against the racist “assholes” sending abuse to the three England players following the team’s loss at the Euros final. England lost to Italy in penalties, with Italy winning 3-2.
"The people abusing any England players are the only people who have let anyone down. Their behaviour - the people who beat up the Italian fan and the assholes hurling racist abuse is despicable. You are not my countrymen. These players deserve nothing but respect. They’ve given us so much in such a difficult time and they should be held up like kings not kicked while they are down. To Saka, Rashford and Sancho, you had the bravery to step up. You guys are three lions and all decent Englishmen are proud of you and the whole team and staff and we will support you again come the World Cup. #fuckracism"
They’re repairing the Marcus Rashford mural in Manchester ❤️
This is going to look incredible with all the messages around it 👏

“Mr. Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful,” representatives for Millie Bobby Brown said in a statement to The Daily Beast late Tuesday https://t.co/9ziclxdjR1
Representatives for Millie Bobby Brown are addressing the grooming allegations by predatory influencer Hunter Echo, 20, who went on Instagram Live last night to give sexually explicit details on how he groomed the famous teenager. (The duo allegedly began dating when Brown was only 15. Her parents also allowed him to live with Millie for 8 months)
In a statement to The Daily Beast, the reps state they're taking action:
“Mr. Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful. Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behavior once and for all.”

“I read two excellent scripts, which I did think were excellent, but I think Amazon ultimately felt that it was material that had become past tense because it took so long for it come together," Nicolas Cage said of the #TigerKing project getting scrapped https://t.co/bJ5A1kSBLK
Amazon has decided not to move ahead with their Tiger King series starring Nicolas Cage. According to Cage: “[Amazon] felt at one point that it was lightning in a bottle, but that point has since faded into the distance and it’s no longer relevant.” (OP note: yeah, no shit)
Peacock's Tiger King show, which stars John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon, is currently filming.
King talked about her frustrations with unvaccinated family members while conducting an interview with Anthony Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Dr. Fauci, I don't know how many more times you can say to people, 'Listen, it will save your life,'” King said during an exchange about the urgent push to get more Americans vaccinated—amid the rise of the delta variant and recent uptick in hospitalizations and deaths among unvaccinated people.
King revealed that she is laying down the law with family members who will not get vaccinated, and plans to forbid them from joining her for the Thanksgiving holiday this year. “I have this problem with some members of my own family, which I'm now going to ban for Thanksgiving vacation,” King said. "That's how strongly I'm taking what you're saying."
Jennifer Carpenter and John Lithgow are set to return to Dexter for its 10-episode revival.
Thankfully, both will be returning in flashbacks, as the show has no plans of rewriting the series and returning both characters to life. Lithgow was killed off after his season-long stint in Season 4 and Carpenter met her death in the highly reviled series finale.
Original showrunner Clyde Phillips is returning after he left post-Season 4 before the show went to complete shit. The show picks up 10 years after the original ended, with Dexter living under a different name in update New York. It's considered a close-ended revival.
No premiere date has been announced but is expected sometime this fall.
Happy 3rd birthday to Kulture, the adorable bb of Cardi B and her fuckboy Offset. They threw her an extravagant luxury party complete with horse-drawn carriages, four Disney princesses, a ballroom with a castle, and, um, a $150,000 diamond-encrusted choker made by renowned designer Eliante.

[summary] - The What We Do In The Shadows pair have started working on a new series together, per Jemaine: "Taika and I are working on a new series right now which we just started writing. I can't tell you much about it yet, but what's fun about it and what makes it exciting for me is it's something I always wanted to do which is long-form episodes in a sitcom. It's an action-adventure comedy. It'll be different from what I've usually done. I've made three sitcoms now, and I hope this one is still funny but more of an adventure series." - Have considered making more entries into the WWDITS universe (along with Wellington Paranormal) but not sure if anything will ever come to fruition; unsure if Wellington Paranormal will return for a fifth season - Jemaine enjoys working with someone as opposed to being the sole person telling others what to do, such as with WWDITS season two - Finds it odd that he discovered success in America first, which has now let him make New Zealand comedy: "I always thought we'd be doing things here [in New Zealand], and now I'm doing that, but I had to go to Hollywood first because it's harder to do here, in a way. When we were making Conchords, they weren't making very many New Zealand comedy shows then. They'd sort of given up on it. We had a much easier time in America than in New Zealand. After doing Conchords and because the Shadows movie did well, we got to make [Wellington Paranormal]." - Likes seeing more NZ representation on a global scale, such as a robot with a NZ accent in The Mandalorian (played by Taika, of course): "My son didn't know why I was laughing but I told him that at one point, we wouldn't have had that: a robot that talks like us."
Jemaine also talks about the possibility of a Flight of the Conchords reunion with Bret McKenzie:
Jemaine Clement says Bret McKenzie is ghosting him over possible "Flight of the Conchords" reunion https://t.co/dHZJhMBvaf
[summary] - Jemaine isn't sure if Bret would be up for a one-off special: "I emailed Bret twice in the last week, and he hasn't replied to either of those. So I don't know. I'm sure I'll get an answer, but it'll take some days. The first one I sent a few days ago, and he'll maybe reply to that one in a week. The second one I may get a reply in like a month saying, 'I just saw this!'" - He thinks the fictionalized versions of themselves would have spent the pandemic trying to collaborate via Zoom: "I think they would have been trying to jam over Zoom and being frustrated with the time lag. But they'd keep going! They'd be working all day trying to figure out who should start first and playing slightly earlier, so when I come in we would be on time. And Murray [Rhys Darby] would be a little box in the Zoom." - Flight of the Conchords is a difficult show to make because you have both the show and music aspects of it: "Even though I was making two TV shows — What We Do in the Shadows and Wellington Paranormal — making Flight of the Conchords was harder because we were making music for it at the same time. I was telling Bret how making two shows is still not as hard as making a musical show."
An Instagram filter has been causing controversy lately. “Old School,” which gives the appearance that the user’s skin is covered in tattoos, including a swastika.
Influencer and loungewear founder of soft wear, Sabrina Zohar, with more than 17,000 followers on Instagram, denounced the filter over the symbol related to Nazism. But a spokesperson for Facebook, said the filter “does not violate our policies”. The company said it recognizes that the imagery “can be used in cultural context that predates Nazism” and does not plan on removing the filter.
Anastasia Truita Tkachenko, Russian creator of the filter, said the symbol is a Slavic symbol and “symbolizes good, the sun and life.” The symbol tilts its bent arms in a different direction — counter-clockwise — than the Nazi swastika.
It is a symbol of divinity and spirituality in religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism and many countries in Eurasia. In the Western world, it was a symbol of auspiciousness until the 1930s when it became part of Nazi symbolism.
After featuring in the opening credits of Marvels highly anticipated "Black Widow," starring Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and more, the hit cover of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Malia J. has gone viral over TikTok and recently reached #1 on the US iTunes Alternative Sales Chart. The cover is slow, emotional, haunting - and so, soooo good!
Black Widow is poised to be the highest grossing film of the summer.
Unfortunately being exploited, undervalued, ignored, taken advantage of and overall fucked with as an artist is just the name of the game in this industry. I have a lot more to say on this, the above is just one example (!) but it’s what I’m dealing with at the moment pic.twitter.com/h4lvhATK7G
Colombian-Canadian artist Tei Shi has been forced to send a cease and desist to her former label, Downtown Records, as they've yet to pay her the back-end of her advance payment and have stopped responding to her. The second half of her advance was due upon the label's receipt of her masters, two years ago. As a result of the cease and desist, her second album, La Linda, has now been removed from streaming, which still has not resulted in any contact from Downtown Records.
