Halsey no longer doing interviews after pronouns were 'disrespected'


Halsey says they will no longer do press after Allure magazine didn't use their correct pronouns in the August cover story and take their interview quotes out of context.

In a series of, now-deleted tweets, Halsey says:

“hey @Allure_magazine. First your writer made a focal point in my cover story my pronouns and you guys deliberately disrespected them by not using them in the article"

"Then your admin bastardized a quote where I discuss the privilege of being the white child of a black parent + Intentionally used a portion that was the antithesis of the point I was trying to make.”

"All of this ironically on the tails of an article where I give the author the intimate admission that I hate doing press because I get exploited and misquoted. Do fucking better.."

Chris Lowell and Kerry Bishé Have a Baby Girl!

https://instagram.com/p/CRrKvGQtWNN


** GLOW actor Chris Lowell announced on Instagram that he and his partner actress Kerry Bishé have a 6 month old baby girl!

caption reads:

"An unexpected twist! After the bus broke down for the third time, I went into town to try and rent a truck with a camper-back for us to sleep in, while Kerry waited at the trailer-park for the tow-truck to arrive. Boredom or curiosity overcame her and one thing led to another and suddenly Kerry was in a gas station bathroom taking a pregnancy test and VOILA! A PLUS SIGN!

Just like we’d always imagined…

Turns out Kerry was pregnant the entire time we were on the road (and a couple weeks prior to that). Anyway here’s a photo of the pregnancy tests on a log where we camped (including a back-up test I bought at an Albertson’s on the way back from town) and a photo of us right afterwards.

Not to jump ahead, but we now have a beautiful, healthy 6-month-old baby girl and I love her at least as much as I love Kerry.

Have a great weekend everyone!"

I only know this because I just happened to be googling him to find out what project he is in that I thought he was perfect for but couldn't remember the name. Turns out he's going to be Christian Lemon in My Best Friend's Exorcism!! Amazing casting, imo. He's going to be great. Oh, and congrats on the baby! :P

Cardi B Responds to Accusations of Queerbaiting


Rolling Stone published a piece on "queerbaiting" in the music industry, focusing on artists like Billie Eilish and Nick Jonas who have been suspected of utilizing imagery and hints of same-gender attraction to entice LGBTQ fans despite themselves being (seemingly) heterosexual. In the piece, Cardi B and Normani got a mention for their interactions in the recent "Wild Side" music video, in which they are seen "naked and gyrating against one another."

Cardi B has responded to the accusation, raising concerns about the prevalence of the term and the harm that can come from interrogating the sexualities of public figures. In addition to the above tweet, she expressed further issue with the term, stating:

ONTD, what are your thoughts on real-life people being accused of "queerbaiting"?

Chicago Blackhawks facing two lawsuits linked to sexual assault



***TRIGGER WARNING: sexual assault, victim-blaming, homophobia***

The NHL's Chicago Blackhawks are facing two sexual assault lawsuits connected to former video coach Brad Aldrich. The first one goes back to 2010. Neither of the victims involved have given their names and instead are referred to as John Doe 1 and John Doe 2.

Aldrich has previously been convicted of [trigger warning]molesting a 17-year-old boy for which he was sentenced to nine months in prison and probation for 60 months which he completed in 2019.

The Chicago Blackhawks filed to have both lawsuits dismissed earlier this month. Those who were on the team at the time of the first lawsuit have claimed they had no idea any of this had happened. It should be noted this is not the first time someone in the organization has been accused of sexual assault.

I have included a brief summary of the suits under the cut, but please be aware of the trigger warnings!

French Box Office Plunges 70% Due to New Entry Rules Requiring Proof of Vaccination or PCR Test



The new sanitary measures in France enforced on July 21 which require a proof of vaccination or a recent negative PCR test to enter cultural venues, including movie theaters.
“health pass” is meant to help contain the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

Several entries saw its ticket sales in France drop : F9 - 90%, Annette - 80%, Titane - 33%, Benedetta - 70%.

Exhibitors now fear distributors will pull out their upcoming releases, notably Gaumont with “OSS 117: From Africa With Love,” the anticipated French comedy starring Jean Dujardin.

The box office drop is not so surprising considering that only 43.8% of the French population is fully vaccinated as of July 23. The number of appointments for a shot of the vaccine skyrocketed by more three million, after Macron's speech.

France is the first country in Europe to require a health pass in public venues but other countries are expected to follow suit. 

Starting on Aug. 1, the health pass in France will also be mandatory in cafes, shops, restaurants, as well as trains and planes, among other places.

Cleveland Indians to Change Name After 106 Years



After 106 years, the Cleveland Indians no longer exist.

After decades of controversy and protests over the major league baseball team’s name as being offensive to Native Americans, the franchise has rebranded as the Cleveland Guardians.

The name is a reference to the city’s “Guardians of Traffic” Art Deco bridge statues.

Last year, the NFL’s Washington Redskins dropped its name and is temporarily going as Washington Football Team.

It's been one year since Taylor Swift released 'folklore'


• Exactly one year ago today, Taylor Swift released her eighth studio album, folklore.

• Before this release, Taylor was known to operate on a two year album cycle and her latest album, Lover, was less than a year old. But in her announcement she wrote that the pandemic had shown her there was no perfect time to release music, and that she wanted to share what the isolation of the worldwide shutdown had inspired her to make.

• The album eschewed the maximalist pop sound that had become her trademark since the 1989 era, and worked with The National’s Aaron Dessner and longtime collaborator Jack Antonoff to produce songs with a more indie-tinged sound. She ended up collaborating with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and even wrote songs with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn (credited on the album as William Bowery).

• The album would go on to spend eight weeks at number one on the Billboard 200. She would also debut every song off the album on the Hot 100 chart, with ‘cardigan’ peaking at number one and ‘the 1’ and ‘exile’ debuting in the top ten.

• In September Taylor performed ‘betty’ at the Academy of Country Music Awards and shot a Disney+ special with Antonoff and Dessner. Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions was released in late November and featured the trio performing every song off the album and discussing the effect the pandemic had on them and how they channeled that into their art.

• A few weeks later on December 11, Taylor announced the release of her ninth studio album, evermore, which she described as the “sister album” to folklore.

• On March 14, 2021 Taylor, Antonoff, and Dessner would perform a medley featuring ‘cardigan’ and ‘august’ from folklore, and ‘willow’ from evermore. At the end of the night folklore would win Album of the Year making Taylor the first female musician to ever win the award three times.

what's everyone's favorite song after a year? (and yes feel free to talk about the infamous folklore listening post lol)

He mentioned that if Nas wanted him in the shower scene he would've been there and was ultimately just following Nas' lead when it came to the creative direction of the video.

Henry Golding used to cut Kate Middleton’s brother’s hair



Before he was an actor Henry Golding used to work at a hair salon and Kate Middleton would come. Henry would cut her brothers hair. He calls it his brush with the royal family and says they were very sweet. Michelle Buteau jokes that her brush with the royal family is that she looked like if Megan Markle let herself go. (She’s so funny)


The two play a round of firsts.
