Thandiwe Newton calls her Star Wars death: “A big mistake”

Today in "Second verse, same as the first" news, while promoting "Reminicence" (I didn't know she was in that....) Thandiwe Newton played Val, the first black woman in the mainline Star Wars visual medium with any kind of impact...and was still killed.

But that wasn't in the script! It just happened during filming.

"It’s much easier just to have me die than it is to have me fall into a vacuum of space so I can come back sometime." Though she didn't necessarily want to come back, she does recognize how Lucasfilm shortchanged the first black female Star Wars character. She would be followed by Naomi Ackie's Jannah in "The Rise of Skywalker", who, while did not die, didn't do a whole lot. Why do I like this franchise again?


She also talks about Westworld, but idk about that very much. Never saw Solo anyway.

What have you been watching lately, ONTD?

Fortnite Is Now Educating Your Children about Martin Luther King Jr.

Today in "I know, I know, but read the entire thing", Sony is meeting the youth where they are. If they can't go to school to learn about a sanitized version of a man who challenged the fabric of America, they can do it in the game.

You know, gaming, that paragon of social justice!

Now, MLK is not a playable character or a skin (Oh god do not imagine that) - Your character will teleport to 60 years ago , to 'allow players to witness the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. '

The video shows a pink woman watching the I Have A Dream Speech.

No word on if it will teach children about Letters From A Birmingham Jail.



'Lion King' Prequel of Mufasa's Origins Casts Kelvin Harrison Jr. & Aaron Pierre

Yeah remember this? It's a thing, and it's still happening. Still directed by Barry Jenkins ("If Beale Street Could Talk"), still animated (Well, like The Lion King remake was animated. So IRL animation? What am I saying.)

Aaron Pierre will voice Mufasa while Kelvin Harrison Jr. will voice Taka (the original name for Scar. You think his parents named him "Scar"? Damn.)

Music will be coming from legends Hans Zimmer (who scored the original and 2019 version), Pharrell, and Succession’s, Moonlight's, and Beale Street's Nicholas Britell.


JoJo Siwa and Olympian Suni Lee Join Dancing With the Stars Cast

Tyra Banks will also return as host this year. The remaining 13 celebrities competing will be revealed on September 8th on Good Morning America.

Strong reviews precede the release of Halsey's 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power'

Halsey will release their fourth studio album, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power, tomorrow, and if early reviews are anything to go by listeners won't be disappointed. The album, produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, currently holds a Metascore of 77 based on six critic reviews.

"The record itself has a tight, internal focus: It's about walking the line between self-preservation and self-destruction, control and compulsion, the thrill and terror of getting what you want. Instead of sieving these themes through an elaborate architecture, Halsey lets horror—of the body, of the mind, of mortality—radiate outward. The result is alluring and spectral. It's their best work yet." ★★★½ —Pitchfork

Erin Andrews is undergoing her seventh round of IVF

Erin Andrews, 43, revealed that she is currently undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments to try to start a family with husband Jarret Stoll. She has been undergoing IVF since she was 35.

Trying to balance “sometimes working up to 14 hours a day” and setting aside time for IVF has been a “challenging” time.
Because of her age, her body is also “stacked against” her, making the process even more difficult.
She is sometimes forced between her career and wanting to have a child.

She sometimes still feels like it is “embarrassing” and wants to keep her IVF process on the down low.
She is learning to embrace being more vocal about it.
That part of wanting to keep it all a secret was the fear of not wanting to “jinx it.”

"I work in an industry where I think women feel the need to keep things like this quiet. But no, there are so many other women who maybe put their careers on the back burner because they don’t want to miss out on any opportunities. It’s so common that people are starting families late and put so many other aspects of their lives on hold. I am thankful I did it. They encouraged me to be open about it because this is real life. It’s not like I’m leaving to go take a hot yoga class, I’m trying to have a baby. I am not ashamed, and I want to be vocal and honest about this.”

Andrews was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2016.

BTS on success, the future and chart manipulation

The new issue of Billboard Magazine features an interview with BTS where they discuss  HYBE , military enrolment and chart manipulation allegations.

On their expected military service: 

The seven men all have a lot more weighing on their minds these days. Their importance as cultural ambassadors for South Korea has become so great that this past December, in an unprecedented move, the country’s government changed a law, allowing the group to wait until age 30 to enlist in the military. (Previously, it had been 28.) But with Jin turning 30 at the end of 2022, BTS faces a lengthy period with at least one member missing — and should they all choose to serve at the same time, as some stock analysts in South Korea have predicted, a group hiatus could last about 18 months (the minimum length of service).
