Rose McGowan was stung by a murder hornet

The activist and charmed actress tweeted that she was stung by a murder hornet. Immediately experimenting symptoms such as pain in the area, numb extremities, fatigue, sweats, blurry vision and tachycardia.

The murder hornet is an invasive species from Asia, prone to endangering bee populations and destruction of ecosystems, it is not known how it ended up in these parts of the world, but scientists in the Pacific Northwest have issued alarms since appearing.

After posting photographic evidence of the insect, some users identified it as possibly an executioner wasp or a paper wasp, both of those species having a sting that is more painful than that of the murder hornet.

She lives in Tulum, Quintana Roo, so it’s still not clear if the bug was indeed a murder hornet or any other species endemic to Mexico.

Anything you're looking forward to hearing about or seeing, ONTD?

Rose McGowan Slams Oprah Winfrey

Oprah has come under fire over a 2003 interview, she interviewed Dolly Parton, and recently, a snippet from their chat went viral. In the clip, Oprah asks Parton about her cosmetic surgery and the exchange rubbed a few of the country star's fans the wrong way.

Some accused Winfrey of trying her best to embarrass the singer while others thought that people were reading too much into it. Rose McGowan used the opportunity to call Winfrey to the floor with a scathing tweet. She shared a photo of Oprah kissing Weinstein on the cheek.

"I am glad more are seeing the ugly truth of @Oprah. I wish she were real, but she isn’t. From being pals with Weinstein to abandoning & destroying Russell Simmon’s victims, she is about supporting a sick power structure for personal gain, she is as fake as they come. #lizard."


Chrisette Michele Reflects On Being "Canceled" Over Trump: "Kanye Endorsed Him"

Chrisette Michele performed at Trump's inauguration and was vilified. She was "canceled" to such a degree that her career has not recovered. A debate has been launched about Cancel Culture following Kanye West's Donda release.

West has made quite a few controversial remarks that have caused frustration. (He has stated that enslaved people chose to stay in bondage for centuries, he claimed Harriet Tubman "never actually freed the slaves," he praised former President Donald Trump while wearing MAGA hats, he visited Trump at the White House and compared him to Superman, and he ran in the presidential election causing many to believe he was attempting to sway voters.)

'Donda' has broken records and West has raked in millions from the project, its release, its listening events, its merchandise sales, and much more.

This new discussion has caused Chrisette to come forward with her take on artists like West being welcomed with open arms while she continues to fight for her place in the public's forgiveness.

"Being compared to Kanye & Travis [Greene] for the last 5 years. Watching them soar into the highest realms of stardom. Waiting on Gods hand to show me exactly what my story will look like. I think most of the comments are well intended and I’m not really attached to the results of the conversation. But it is an interesting topic. Kanye endorsed him, Travis sang with me, and… time unfolded. Would you release new music if you were me? What would you sing about? Who would you sing to? Why? What does my role as FEMALE play in this story? What about my role as Christian? How about my role as it compares to Kanye & Travis?"


21 Savage Shares His Thoughts About Cheating

21 Savage was asked how many times his heart had been broken and he said once, but that it didn't mess him up because he was open to the next woman coming in to heal his heart. "That was like, young nigga shit... I got cheated on. I ain't goin' for that shit now. Cheat on me it's over with. Never speak to you again in life. Straight up."

21 Savage, in the past, tried to forgive and forget, but it didn't work for him. "Anytime you do something wrong, that shit just get you. 'You was suckin' dick' is just automatically what comes to a nigga head. I couldn't ever look at her the same."

Debate, women do better with forgiving a man's infidelities than men do with women. 21 Savage had his own theory as to why that is the case. "That's different though, because we conquer women. Your girl gon' look at it like, 'Okay, my man conquered a woman.' So it's like, a nigga won in the situation. She just got hit but vice versa, you my queen, so if a nigga conquer you, our whole castle is now like, vulnerable... Once a nigga get between your legs he can get anything else up out of you. He can know where I live, how I move, our problems we having in the house, what I'm going through in my life."

Michael Gandolfini On Playing Tony Soprano: ‘It’s The Toughest Decision I’ve Had To Make’

Michael Gandolfini discussed playing his late father's character.

“You know, I didn’t want to put pressure on myself to walk out of this feeling like I’d grown in terms of my feelings towards my dad,” he said. “I just wanted to be the best actor I could be, portraying Tony in the way David wanted, scene by scene. I didn’t think about my grief because… well, I would have shit the bed."

On comparing his version of Tony Soprano with James's: “My dad’s character had all this beautiful sensitivity underneath this aggression. This version of him is the reverse. His curiosity and sensitivity comes first. He’s not a gun-wielding gangster. He’s a kid who gets whittled down and pulled in.”


Justin Bieber Goes Viral for Ad That Looks Like He's Wearing Kim Kardashian's SKIMS

Justin Bieber is starring in a new ad for Balenciaga. Unfortunately, a billboard meant to display his ad campaign accidentally displayed an advertisement for Kim Kardashian's shapewear line SKIMS on its bottom half. As a result, it looks like he's wearing a pair of gray SKIMS panties.

Why the mix-up?

Honest mistake
Kris Jenner manipulated it for extra press
Selena and Taylor arranged it to get back at Justin and Kim
Justin secretly wanted some free Skims
Someone with a sick/amazing sense of humor was in charge

Joe Rogan Has Tested Positive For COVID-19

Joe Rogan, 54, has tested positive for COVID-19.

The washed up comedian and controversial podcast host confirmed his diagnosis via Instagram on Wednesday. Rogan told his followers, “Hello, friends. So, I got back from the road Saturday night feeling very weary. I had a headache and I just felt rundown,” Rogen explained. “Just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house. Throughout the night I got fevers and sweats, and I knew what was going on. So I got up in the morning, got tested and it turns out I got COVID.”

“We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it—all kinds of meds: monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything. And I also got an NAD drip, a vitamin drip, and I did that three days in a row. And so, here are on Wednesday, and I feel great. I really only had one bad day. Sunday sucked. Today I feel good. I actually feel pretty fuckin’ good.”

The podcast host has not publicly stated if he’s vaccinated or not, but has had plenty of hot takes on vaccines over the past few weeks and months.

Director Paul Schrader Talks Cancel Culture

His opinion about cancel culture
"It’s nonetheless considerably true. Publicity is publicity. However increasingly more careers have ended, not due to prison prices however due to private prices, whether or not it’s Kevin Spacey, Scott Rudin or Johnny Depp. They’ve gotten caught up in cancel tradition. Cancel tradition is so infectious, it’s just like the Delta virus. In case your pal says, ‘they’re saying these horrible issues about me that aren’t true’, you’re afraid to come back to their defence, since you would possibly catch that virus too."

If he is afraid of being cancelled?
"No, I feel I’ve been pretty trustworthy and upfront, stored my arms to myself. Being a author within the arts, phrases are our instruments, in plenty of scripts I exploit the ‘N-word’…"


Kat Graham Explains the Meaning Behind Her New Identity "Toro Gato"

The name Toro Gato shows the duality between the two egos.

"I think that we as entertainers have this identity that we have to give to the public and be presentable, and I think sometimes we forget our core and our truth. As our artist, I want to explore that with this Toro Gato project and this entire NFT collection. I wanted to kind of dismantle my former identity."

"I actually bury myself in one of these films. So this is a new version. They say it's the alter ego but I actually think the more and more time I spend in this space, I think Kat is the alter ego and I am becoming the West African, the ruler, the monster, that's not scared of anything that can show up without shoes on. I think that's really fun, and a terrifying place to be."

"Toro Gato shows the light and the dark sides, so you know when you get really really angry and you're scared of that monster and you don't want to let that side out? Like, this is that version of that. Gato is maybe the peaceful side, and both sides can exist. It's showcasing the subconscious mind and the conscious mind."

The FTC is investigating McDonald's iconic broken McFlurry machines

- The Federal Trade Commission is interviewing McDonald franchisees about how often they're allowed to work on their McFlurry machines when they break down.

- McFlurry machines are a breeding ground for bacteria, so they have to be cleaned every night, and frequently break, leading to all the jokes. The company that makes the machines, Taylor, are historically the only ones who've been allowed to fix the machines, leading to either delays or employees bypassing the machine's sanity and security measures. Recently, a company named Kytch developed a diagnostic device to allow franchisees to fix the machines themselves, and a federal judge issued a restraining order against Taylor to prevent them from dismantling one of Kytch's devices to learn its secrets. Taylor warned franchisees not to use the Kytch product and at the same time started developing their own.

- It's part of the "right to repair" movement, over whether people should be allowed to repair things they own, like tractors or Apple products, instead of allowing repair restrictions to stand and make people dependent on manufacturers to use their devices.

YouTuber Piper Rockelle, 14, Denies Being Exploited By Parents After Pink Comments On Bikini Photos

Pink called out the parents of 14-year-old Piper Rockelle, suggesting that she was “being exploited” in bikini pics taken by her mother. "How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents? And at what point do the rest of us say … “this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!”

Rockelle denied the charges of exploitation.
She wore the bikini in her IG photos because it was summer, and there was nothing sexual about it.

“The first thing I want everyone to know is that my mom doesn’t make me do anything. Quite the opposite, I’m a kid who had a dream and my mom is amazing enough to help me live it out. I don’t think P!nk has ever seen one of my YouTube videos because if she did she’d see it’s just my friends and me having fun and acting like ourselves. The content we make is the kind of stuff anyone can watch. I know there are kids who are being taken advantage of and that’s a real problem, but I’m not one of them.”

Britney Spears is not that innocent.

Prosecutors have decided not to file a charge against the singer for allegedly swatting her housekeeper’s phone in a dispute at her home last month.

In a statement on Wednesday, Ventura County District Attorney Erik Nasarenko said there was insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred, and noted the lack of injury to the housekeeper or damage to the phone.

The housekeeper called the authorities on Aug. 16, after a fight over the veterinary care received by Spears’ dog.

As the Industry Cheers Dolce & Gabbana, Don't Forget Their Not-So-Brief History of Being The Worst

Dolce & Gabbana's Alta Moda show, staged in Venice over the weekend, seems to have given the fashion industry collective amnesia.

The flashy event was attended by Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lopez, Megan Thee Stallion, Jennifer Hudson, Heidi Klum, Kris Jenner & Kourtney Kardashian, Ciara, Doja Cat, Normani, Diddy, Saweetie, among others garnered a slew of celebrity style buzz, as well as a glowing review on Vogue.

The abundance of A-list attendees, as well as the collection's embrace by the fashion gatekeepers, beg the question: does anyone remember Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's pattern of racist, homophobic, and all-together crude remarks?

Collapse )

No matter how opulent the fashions, it's baffling how quickly celebrities and journalists alike seem to have forgotten Dolce & Gabbana's outdated values.

As the fashion industry fails to hold the brand accountable for its long history of racism, misogyny, and homophobia, an old adage comes to mind: love — at least of Venitian photo ops and sequined frocks — is blind.
