Carpool Karaoke featuring Camila Cabello, Billy Porter & Idina Menzel

James Corden and his fellow Cinderella co-stars Camila Cabello, Billy Porter & Idina Menzel carpool to the premiere of the film.

Idina talks about her infamous OSCAR moment, Camila gushes about her first date with Shawn Mendes and Billy talks about wanting to become the male Whitney Houston and the importance of representation.

(01:14) Mama Mia by ABBA
(04:10) Let It Go by Adele Dazeem lol
(06:38) Million to One by Camila Cabello (ONTD's favorite song)
(08:48) Defying Gravity by Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth
(12:10) And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going by Jennifer Hudson (I'm guessing that they couldn't clear a Whitney track to follow the storyline)


Beijing to ban 'SHANG-CHI' due to their portrayal of 'racist villain'.

- China's Communist Party's censors are yet to approve it but they've said that they will not premiere 'SHANG-CHI ANT THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS' due to the 'racist archetype' villain and the similarity of Tony Leung's character to racist comic villain Fu-Manchu.

- People are calling bullshit since the character is far different from Fu-Manchu (In the original comics Fu Manchu had a yellowface-like design and Shang-Chi was born after Fu Manchu selected a “perfect” white American woman to bear his children, echoing his mission to “kill the white man and take his women”) and think this is an excuse and China's real reason lays in the film portrayal of characters migrating away from the country to the US.

- In case you don't know about China's film ban, New Rockstars has a great video about it, but basically every year they only premiere 34 international films in China, and they must not contain:

  1. Basically anything that promotes resistance to the law, so protests are a no-no.

  2. Insulting ethnic cultural traditions of China.

  3. Advocating other religions, superstitions or magic, which includes witchcraft, ghosts and demonic possession aka 'Chinese-no-ghost-rule'. So no Mephisto ever in China.

  4. Pornography (duh).

  5. Homosexuality. They've even started to ban 'effeminate pop singers'.

Munn in the Oven '21: Not everyone is buying John Mulaney's Olivia Munn romance timeline

Shoutout to syphillisdiller for coming up with a scandal name!

Today in news about ONTD....

A celebrity agent claims it's no coincidence that John gave "spring" as the timeline of the relationship; they allege he's going to great lengths to dispute the fact he cheated.

They also wonder about the timeline of his divorce - September 2020 vs. February 2021.

The source recaps everything ONTD has known about this whole ordeal.


Jensen Ackles faces homophobic accusations

Supernatural star/kmart version Jeremy Renner recently just came off the heels of being criticized for his preformence as Dean Winchester in the series 18 episode of their final season. Some fans have noted and remarked "he looks like he's holding back a slur" while the angel character Castiel confesses his love for him. Well now he is once again under fire in fandom spaces for a 2013 convention video resurfacing.

In the video it can be heard and seen Ackles reacting to a fan about to ask a question regarding dean’s potential bisexuality subtext. The fan was not able to finish asking said question due to others in the crowd booing causing her to shut down and apologize. Ackles seemed to agree with the crowd and vocalized his distaste with the direction of the question. Even when as far as to chastise her by telling her to not "ruin it for everyone." The fan was promptly escorted out right then and there according to her retelling of events in a now deleted tumblr post. The video in question has opened the door for newer fans to wonder just what his problem is, and why does the “subtext” people have of dean (ackles character) seem to get him into such a tizzy.

Usher, Priyanka Chopra & Julianne Hough Set For ‘The Activist’, CBS Competition Series

Deadline reports that Usher, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Julianne Hough will be co hosts on a new reality/competition series for CBS.

Global Citizen is producing a new show called The Activist, a five-week reality series premiering on Friday, Oct. 22.

Per Deadline: “The Activist is a competition series that features six inspiring activists teamed with three high-profile public figures working together to bring meaningful change to one of three vitally important world causes: health, education, and environment.”

The participants will compete in head to head challenges in hopes of winning a chance to go to G20 Summit in Rome, Italy. There they will bid their causes and hope to get funding.

There will be musical performances as well.


'The Amazing Race' Will Return This Season - Somehow????

Celebrating it's 20th anniversary, the unfortunately-timed Season 33 was halted in Feb. 2020 after 3 episodes of filming. Cast and crew are ready to return.

One of the creators;  “We just need to get that mass vaccinations happening. Safety is key, you don’t want to do a show and have people get sick. That’s our priority.”

So people from America, where people aren't taking the vaccine, will be racing around the world, including countries who want a vaccine, but can't get any. Hm.


Say what you want, but there's really no way you can just run around the world and do challenging things "safely", even if people are vaccinated and wear masks, and I love the show.

Sevdaliza: "You don't get 'off the grid' quality of artistry without some extent of forced labor"

This Wednesday (8), Sevdaliza shared this three-pic carousel on Instagram.

The third picture is supposedly a picture of a conversation between Kanye West and a sound engineer, who was fired after being late to a session, according to this NME article.

Furthermore, "Off The Grid" is a song on the rapper's new album, "DONDA", so it's most likely Sevdaliza is talking about the situation.

Throwback Thursday: Buffy Lives! Looking back at BTVS move from WB to UPN

-Buffy The Vampire Slayer aired for 5 seasons on TheWB before moving over to UPN where it would air its final 2 seasons. This wasn't your usual 'network cancels show, new network takes pity and picks up canceled show'. With it being TBT lets look back at the high profile move between networks.

-Buffy was a FOX production that was sold to TheWB with a 5 year contract. Once the series entered its 5th season in 2001 other networks were interested in stealing the show due to its massive popularity and Whedon/Fox wanted an increase in the shows budget something that doesnt happen often in network television, especially a small network like TheWB.

-TheWB was the type of network that was rather tightnet with its young stars as plenty of them co-mingled and would do a lot of promotional material together every year and this was something that proved popular with Sarah Michelle Gellar.

-In an attempt to keep the Buffy on TheWB, SMG threatened to quit the show should it be moved to a new network but due to having a 7 year contract her threat didn't make much of an impact.
The WB Television Network GIF | Gfycat

-A bidding war between TheWB & UPN erupted with TheWB offering to up the budget of the show from $1 million per episode to $1.8 million an episode while UPN used its CBS lineage to offer up a big $2.3 million per episode budget and an automatic 7th season thus slaying the competition.

-Buffy still had its 5th season to finish playing out and it just so happened that Whedon had decided that Buffy would die at the end of the season, something that TheWB took advantage of.

-In order to cause confusion, TheWB billed 5x22 The Gift as TheWB Series Finale, a term commonly used when a show was ending for good.

-With Buffy officially leaving WB many speculated that they would cancel Angel as well but WB decided to renew it and put a ban on the 2 shows from ever crossing over once Buffy started production on Season 6 and ending its yearly trend of crossing over with one another.

-When Season 6 was scheduled to premiere, UPN rolled out the carpet with a ton of promos to reassure fans that not only was it coming to its network but that Buffy lived!

Collapse )

-UPN wanted to renew the show for an 8th season but SMG and JW both wanted out....and years later TheWB/UPN would end up merging and giving birth to TheCW where they only produce WB and CBS owned properties.

Christopher Nolan's next film: Oppenheimer and the atom bomb

Christopher Nolan is getting ready for his next project.

The film will center on J Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist and member of the Manhattan Project that developed the first nuclear weapon during World War II.

In a not-very-shocking twist, the screenplay is been passed around to other studios after Nolan slammed Warner Bros for their HBO Max hybrid decision. It's unknown if Warner is one of the studios that is reading the screenplay, but it would be major if Nolan went elsewhere as he's been with the studio since 2002's Insomnia.

Source has no casting news but mentions Nolan-fav Cillian Murphy as someone who might be involved.
