Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira’s ‘Americanah’ Series Not Moving Forward at HBO Max

“Americanah” was supposed to start shooting earlier this year, but the production dates were pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This lead to a conflict in Lupita's diary so she then had to drop out.

The show received a 10-episode straight-to-series order with HBO. Both Nyong’o and Gurira were to serve as executive producers on the show, and Gurira writing and serving as showrunner.


Such a shame! Lupita was very passionate about this and had stalked/written to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie before she even got her big break in "12 years a slave".

Ava Max Defends Her Roblox Album Release Event and “Concert”

Dubbed one of the worst online events, Pop singer Ava Max is defending her pre-recorded and scripted Roblox appearance. “I got a lot of love and a lot of hate, and I started laughing at the haters,” she said. “I’m not striving to be cool, and I think that’s what makes my music relatable. I can definitely have fun with myself.”

“It’s a great way to connect to your fans,” she added. “I think virtual events are definitely going to be more prominent now, because everyone’s at home.”

Ava Max’s debut studio album “Heaven & Hell” debuted at no. 27 on the Billboard 200 back in September.

Marcus Rashford Inspires Grassroots Food Program for Kids in the UK

  • Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford MBE has spent months campaigning against child food poverty in the UK by pressuring the government to fund free meals for low-income students during school holidays.

  • He has cited his own experiences relying on free school meals, food programs and the kindness of others growing up as one of five children of a single mother.

  • He achieved a big win this past June when the Prime Minister agreed to keep funding a meal voucher program over the summer after initially deciding to end it.

  • Rashford, 22, was awarded an MBE earlier this month for services to vulnerable children in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic. (Note: What's an MBE? ← For the non-Brits.)

  • He's continued to campaign on behalf of low-income children, frequently clashing with Tory MPs who insist "it's a parents job to feed their children" and accuse him and others of "virtue signaling" on Twitter.

  • This week, the Labour Party motioned for the meal voucher program to be extended through Easter 2021, but the motion was struck down, 322 votes to 261.

  • In the wake of the news, local businesses and councils throughout England have offered to provide free meals for students during the October holidays, which begin Monday.

  • Marcus Rashford spent nearly 24 hours retweeting announcements from local businesses and councils before signing off. Twitter user @anjali_x created a Google Spreadsheet to attempt to keep all info in one place for ease of access.

ONTD Original: The Story Behind... "Heavenly Creatures" (1994)

Do you ever watch a film "based on true events" and spend the next 2 hours looking for everything about them on the Internet ? Yeah, me too ! So I thought "why not share with the world what I'm obsessed about?".

Directed by Peter Jackson (yes he was not always obsessed by hobbits) and released in 1994, "Heavenly Creatures" tells the story of the notorious Parker/Hulme murder case.

In 1952, in Christchurch, a small town in New Zealand, the life of Pauline Parker, a withdrawn teenager, would changed with the arrival in her class of Juliet Hulme, an intelligent and outgoing young English girl. It is the beginning of an exclusive friendship. Through their stories and their games, the two teenagers would gradually cut themselves off from reality and lock themselves in a subversive imagination.

With Kate Winslet (first cinema role) and Melanie Lynskey (her first role).
