🚨 Spoiler Alert 🚨 SHANG-CHI post credit scenes have leaked online.



As always, spanish media delivering the spoilers… lol

[LEAKED VIDEOS THIS WAY]



So. What happened? Here’s the rundown for non-spanish speakers.

[Spoiler (click to open)]The movie ends with Katy and Shang-Chi following Wong to the santum sanctorum through the portal.

Scene 1: Wong tells Shang-chi and Katy that they’ve never seen magic like the one used by the rings and as the camera pans out we see Bruce Banner (who is not in professor Hulk form, but keeps wearing the arm sling) and Captain Marvel. They’re in some of those projections used during Avengers Endgame. They also mention that they’ve never seen that kind of tech and they all realize that the rings are sending a message to something in the universe. Once Carol and Bruce leave, Wong welcomes Shang-Chi and Katy to the Avengers.

Scene 2: we see Xialing picking up the posters from her room in the Ten Rings base and RazorFist tells her they’re ready. Xialing takes the seat Wenwu used to have with the ten rings in the back and as the camera pans out we see that she’s turning the compound in her new tournament base. The last shot says ‘The Ten Rings will return’.

Ontd Original: A list of celebrities that helped Dolce and Gabbana recapture the Red carpet

-Dolce and Gabbana, who have had controversies over actions like racist earrings in 2012, selling of so called slave sandals in 2013,being gay men against gay adoption, and an ad China deemed insensitive and leaked emails that were deemed racist that lead to a unspoken expulsion from the Hollywood red carpet in 2018, had a fashion show last week.



- Comments on some posts only seemed to zero in on the handful of Black woman there, and comments like how they would be dropped once white people started wearing the brand again abounded. The Problem? A-list White stars never stopped wearing D&G,among other stars.



-Dolce and Gabbana never lost money over the controversies despite being banned in China for a few months. They grew 5% in 2019. Some people point to Lucio De Rosi as being able to get even more stars to come back to the familiar brand as the head of Worldwide celebrities and VIP relations,a position he held at Versace for 15 years and Armani before that.Quote:"Lucio is a beloved figure in the fashion industry. He has really strong connections to Celebrities and stylists".

Ontd: What should a star be now? Entertainer, Activist, Teacher, all of the above. Do you believe stars can grow. How many chances are to many? Is an apology ever enough? Does it just depend on the person or brand? Is anyone or anything not complicit? Should you only trust what you produce yourself? Have we gone to far in Idol worship? Can we ever go back?

K. Michelle Warns The COVID-19 Vaccine Doesn't "Mix Well" With Silicone



K. Michelle has been vocal about her cosmetic surgery journey.
She has undergone treatments to take out certain enhancements she injected into her body.
These augmentations have reportedly caused near-fatal moments for K. Michelle and have misshapen certain parts of her body, and now she claims that the COVID vaccine does not pair well with silicone.

"Silicone and the vaccine don't mix well together. It makes you extremely sick. So, I have to make a decision about fighting a sickness when I'm just getting healthy again and the chances of what the vaccine might do to me. 'Cause you'll never fully get silicone out of your body. This is something you're stuck with for the rest of your life, which is why I try to talk to women and let them know that the girls you see are sick. It's not hat you think it is. But, yeah. Sixteen surgeries later, four blood transfusions later.

Angelina Jolie Feared for Her Children during Marriage to Brad Pitt



Angelina Jolie told The Guardian in this weekend's issue she 'feared for her children’ during her marriage to Brad Pitt. She said her experiences in her relationship with Brad made her realise the importance of children’s rights, which she is supporting with a new book, Know Your Rights.

When asked what had happened that made her fear for her children’s rights, Jolie said she was still in her own legal situation that she “can’t speak about” but confirmed by nodding that she was alluding to her divorce and the allegations of domestic abuse she made against Pitt.

When pressed about whether or not she feared for the safety of her children, she answered: “Yes, for my family. My whole family.”

Angie also said she did not make the decision to divorce Brad lightly. “It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.”

When asked what the past five years had taken out of her, Angelina answered: “I mean, in some ways it’s been the last decade. There’s a lot I can’t say. How am I? I’m realising that sometimes you can survive things, but not know how to feel and live in the same way. So it’s more about being open. I’m really trying to be open as a human being again.”

Angie added she had been traumatised and “broken” by her recent experiences and she wanted her family to move forward, “all of us, including their dad. I want us to heal and be peaceful. We’ll always be a family.”

Angelina has received thousands of letters of support from mothers through a child safety advocacy group. The organization said they received letters from all around the world standing with Angie through their shared experiences.

Michael Gandolfini covers Rolling Stone


Rolling Stone's Alan Sepinwall writes the cover story for Michael Gandolfini, star of The Sopranos prequel The Many Saints of Newark.

Highlights:

  • Michael grew up on the Sopranos set in Queens. His father didn't want him to act, but direct or produce instead.

  • Wanted nothing to do with the role when he was first heard about it, but began panicing when David Chase and Alan Taylor saw his work on The Deuce and wanted him to play Tony. Getting the role finally allowed him to sit down and watch his father's work on The Sopranos, something he tried doing multiple times before but couldn't get through. He says he would now "absolutely" continue on with the role if David Chase wants to continue down this prequel path.

  • His co-stars, as well as Chase and Taylor, have nothing but extremely positive things to say about Michael.

  • Sepinwall calls his performance in the film "magnetic," nailing Tony as a younger man.

The film will be released on October 1.

** Little Golden Books were a quarter! ($4.20 in 2021 money.)

** released a dozen titles in the fall of 1942

** The Poky Little Puppy would go on to be the best selling children's book of the 20th century

Suspect Confesses to 1989 Murder of Lois Duncan's Daughter Kaitlyn



** Lo Dunc is the author of young adult classics such as I Know What You Did Last Summer and Killing Mr. Griffin (the latter of which I'm pretty sure Kevin Williamson ripped off for 1999's Teaching Mrs. Tingle but that's a different knot to untangle.)

** Kaitlyn, 18, was murdered in 1989 in what seemed to be a random act of violence.

** Duncan wrote the true crime book Who Killed My Daughter? about her negative experience with the police and her decision to hire a private investigator

** Paul Apodaca confessed to the murder, as well as a string of other crimes at the time which all involved young women. Apodaca has been quoted as saying they were driven by “all the hatred that I had for women.”

** Apodaca was present at Kaitlyn's crime scene but not investigated by police.

** Kaitlyn's older sister Kerry: “This is one of the things that breaks our hearts — this man was at the crime scene with the cops,” she said in a phone interview with the Albuquerque Journal. “How obvious did it need to be to look into this guy? They just let him walk away.”

** Apodaca was a lead suspect identified by a private investigator Duncan hired.

** Lois Duncan passed away in 2016

How Disney and Scarlett Johansson Reached the Point of No Return



In this never-ending saga:

  • According to the source, after the simultaneous release of "Black Widow" (theaters + Premier Access) was announced, Scarlett Johansson’s team made an opening bid: Pay the actress $80 million.

  • That calculation was based on what the star would receive in a hypothetical global box-office take of $1.2 billion, a sum in league with Marvel hits “Captain Marvel” and “Black Panther.

  • Her’s advisers said Disney’s response to the lawsuit has appeared to be, by turns, ignore and attack.

R. Kelly Has A Writing Credit On Drake’s New Album ‘Certified Lover Boy’



Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy has been out for a few hours now.
The artists credited as writers on the song “TSU” include Harley Arsenault, Noel Cadastre, F. Hills, Timothy Mosley (aka Timbaland), Ronald Coleman (aka OG Ron C), Christopher Cross, Justin Timberlake, and Robert Kelly (aka R. Kelly).

The song samples NSYNC’s 1997 song “Sailing,” a cover of Cross’ 1980 single.
The song also samples Timberlake’s “Until The End Of Time,” which Timbaland co-wrote. 
The song also samples Kelly’s 1998 song “Half On A Baby,” which is where his writing credit comes from.

It was reported recently that Kelly is attempting to sell the publishing rights to his back catalog.
If somebody purchased the rights, Kelly would not profit from his song being sampled on “TSU.”
It appears Kelly is struggling to find a buyer.
Kelly still owns his publishing rights and will therefore profit from “TSU,”

Film Fest Reviews: Dune, Spencer, The Card Counter, The Lost Daughter, King Richard


Dune, Spencer, The Card Counter, The Lost Daughter, and King Richard have all premiered over the past 24 hours at Venice and Telluride. Here's what the critics are saying about each:

DUNE
BBC: Film has scope and richness that is a splendid achievement but will anyone care about characters who are shallow and have no personality?
IGN: A gorgeous but imperfect epic that spends too much time setting up a third act we may never see.
The Guardian: A slow-burn space opera that fuses art-house and blockbuster to otherworldly brilliance.
Variety: The film is out to wow us and succeeds, until it doesn't.
IndieWire: Story is told on such a comically massive scale that a screen of any size would struggle to contain it.

With 17 reviews, the film currently has a 76 on Metacritic.
