Shailene Woodley Says Sex Scenes Where Women Wear Bras Are Unrealistic


she doesn't have a problem doing intimate scenes

“I’ve never felt uncomfortable doing intimate scenes because I’m very vocal. I always sit down and talk with the director, the other actor. We always have conversations of, ‘How are you planning on shooting it? Is nudity necessary? Is it going to distract from the scene, add to the scene?’ We know exactly what the boundaries are. And I’ve never been in a situation where those things haven’t been honored.”

and finds a lof of them unrealistic

“Oftentimes in movies, you see two people having sex and the woman has her bra on, and in real life, I don’t think I ever did that, sex with a bra — or very, very rarely,” she said.

The Recording Academy has banned sales and charting bragging in Grammy 'For Your Consideration' ads


📢 The organization behind the Grammy Awards updated their rulebook and guidelines about the “For Your Consideration” ads submitted by labels and artists.

📢 For the 2022 Grammy Awards, the ads may not include “chart numbers, number of streams, sales figures, or RIAA awards.". This rule was not in last year’s guidebook.

📢 Also new in the Voter Code of Conduct section: “voters shall not allow their choices to be suggested, directed or influenced by anything other than their own analysis of merit, including, but not limited to: personal friendships, company loyalties, regional preferences, or sales volume/popularity”.

📢 There's been speculation these new rules might be related to the backlash due to The Weeknd being snubbed in the last Grammys, but fans of artists who rely in their fandom's mass buying power to secure sales records and high chart positions have also felt targeted, as such rules were previously implicit in the awards.

Leanne Wong said her parents are research scientists and that they discussed the vaccine with her but she chose not to get vaccinated. The fourth alternate, Kayla DiCello was not asked if she was vaccinated at the same press event.

Is Peppa Pig turning American toddlers into teaboos?

- People who know WSJ writers and think that "optician" is a college-level word had a petty, posh piglet raising their children during the pandemic, so now they sometimes say things like "mummy" and "tomahto."

- What next, Pedialyte Bluey shoeys?

- Romper reported on this phenomenon two years ago so it's not actually pandemic-specific or indicative of a screentime cultural crisis. As Romper explains it, because I'm not clicking on a WSJ link, young children mimic words they hear, and don't really distinguish between languages and accents. It's also likely that their family and other adults reacting to the unexpected Britishisms reinforces them as attention-getters (sort of like how you shouldn't laugh at little kids swearing or acting like little shits unless you want them to keep doing it.)

Halsey welcomes first baby, Ender Riley Aydin

Halsey and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin, welcomed their first baby together, Ender Riley Aydin, on Wednesday, July 14.

Announcing the birth on Instagram, the singer-songwriter expressed gratitude for "the most 'rare' and euphoric birth, powered by love."

Halsey, 26, has been open since the start of her career about her reproductive health struggles. In 2019, she considered having her eggs frozen before learning that the multiple surgeries she had undergone to battle endometriosis had made conception possible.

"I was like, 'Wait, what did you just say? Did you just say I can have kids?'" she told Rolling Stone. "It was like the reverse of finding out you have a terminal illness."

The Killers Announce Seventh Studio Album Pressure Machine

For a second straight year, The Killers are releasing a new album. The follow-up to 2020’s ‘Imploding the Mirage’ is titled ‘Pressure Machine’ and is dropping on August 13th via Island Records. It is the band’s 7th studio album.

Plus all 4 members are returning and worked on this album: Brandon Flowers, Ronnie Vannucci Jr., Mark Stoermer and yes, even Dave Keuning.

Shawn Everett and Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado co-produced ‘Pressure Machine.’ According to a press release, the album is inspired by Brandon Flowers’ hometown of Nephi, Utah. “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” said Flowers in a statement. “Many memories of my time in Nephi are tender. But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged. I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in.”

According to an accidental leak, the new album will have a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers. ‘Pressure Machine’ is described as an album “full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records” according to Brandon Flowers himself.

'Vanderpump Rules' star says Demi Lovato's approach to sobriety is offensive

Lala Kent, from Vanderpump Rules fame, says Demi Lovato's approach to sobriety is "offensive".

Lovato stated on Joe Rogan's podcast that they're currently 'California sober', meaning they still use marijuana.

“I don’t like to judge, but I actually think that that’s super offensive. There are people out there who work their ass off to never take themselves out of reality and to never place themselves in an altered state.”

“You’re not sober if you’re drinking or you’re smoking weed, you are not sober.”

Kent has been sober since 2018.

Britney Spears shades sister Jamie Lynn on Instagram

It all started when Jamie Lynn uploaded a picture of herself with the caption "May the peace of the Lord be with you and your spirit"✌🏻❤️".

Then today, Britney uploaded a dancing video with the caption "May the Lord wrap your mean ass up in joy today .... PS RED 🌹🌹🌹 !!!!! Pssss … this is Bad Guy part 2 … same song new dance 💃 … if you don’t like it ... don’t watch it 🍒🍒🍒 !!!!!" which seemingly led Jamie Lynn to change hers to a generic "✌🏻❤️"

Britney has previously put her family on blast for leaking stories of support to the media while doing nothing to help her privately during her conservatorship battle against her father.

21 Book Tropes That Are Hated Among Bibliophiles

In no particular order:

1. When the main characters are a set of twins, and there's a “good” one and an “evil” one.

6. Whenever miscommunication between the two main characters “leads to conflict.” Especially when the characters point blank refuse to utter a word to each other, even when a simple sentence of explanation could resolve the entire problem.

7. When a character breaks up with another character in order “to protect them.”

12. Love triangles in general.

13. When two characters are forced to fake-date in order to solve a problem.

The Kid Laroi ft Justin Bieber "Stay" tops the Rolling Stone chart

Screenshot 2021-07-19 5.44.58 PM.png

-Rolling Stone launched their top 100 chart in July of 2019, where unlike the Billboard Hot 100 that includes, radio airplay,Rolling Stone Charts only account for streaming and sales.

- Critics (Me) have pointed out that a chart that leans so heavily on streaming excludes over 200 million people without Internet access and genres such as R&B and Rock do much better on the radio then streaming ( Jazmine Sullivan's "Pick Up your feeling"still charts on the Hot 100, but can not be found on the Rolling Stone Chart), Plus Woman listen to male artist more then Men listen to female artist, so there are fewer woman outside of the very hottest (Cardi, Meg, Doja, Ariana) on a regular basis.Ed Sheeran is number 6.

Variety publishes some clickbait and goes viral for naming Camila Cabello a potential Oscar nominee

• A few days ago Variety published a piece where they try to predict the Best Actress nominees for the 2022 Academy Awards.

• Basically the author of this piece is hedging their bets and names every single actress that is starring in a major or semi-major release this year as a prospective Oscar nominee. This list names Lady Gaga (House of Gucci), Frances McDormand (The Tragedy of Macbeth), Jennifer Hudson (Respect), and Kristen Stewart (Spencer) as the front runners despite the fact that very few people (if any) have actually seen any footage from these movies.

• But the list is mostly getting attention due to the fact that some radio DJ tweeted out that the publication had singled out "singer" Camila Cabello as a prospective Oscar nominee for her turn in Amazon's Cinderella. In actuality the author of the piece ranks her at number 40 out of 40 actresses, ranking her several spots below Scarlett Johansson (for Black Widow) and twenty spots below Emma Stone (for Cruella).
