Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera, Patti LaBelle among inspiring women from Pennsylvania
So, it was right and fitting that in the 1914 campaign for Pennsylvania women to gain the right to vote, a bell would become the symbol for the campaign. Importantly, the clapper would be tightly chained to the side of the bell until women gained voting rights. The freeing of the clapper to do its hard work was indicative of the accomplishments of countless Pennsylvania women in the next five score years. Our final list for Pennsylvania includes women we believe best answered the bell. In 2013, Swift funded the $4 million Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

Judge contested by Angelina Jolie in Brad Pitt divorce also married them
Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Brad Pitt says that Angelina Jolie should have no issue with the private judge who’s presiding over their divorce battle — because he married them. The Oscar winner hit back after Jolie made a legal bid to get Judge John W. Ouderkirk removed due to his prior relationship with Pitt’s attorney, Anne C. Kiley. Jolie, 45, and Pitt, 56, hired the private judge to manage the case to keep many of its filings sealed. However, in papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, Jolie asked for Judge Ouderkirk to be replaced, claiming that he was insufficiently forthcoming about cases he’d worked on with Kiley. “Judge Ouderkirk has also accepted additional new engagements involving opposing counsel during the pendency of this action — a fact fully disclosed to Jolie, and still she has never objected to his continued involvement in this proceeding until now.

Baltimore police spokeswoman Lindsey Eldridge said the department has a policy of not commenting on pending litigation. Maryland’s Board of Public Works voted in March to pay the three men a total of $8.7 million.
‘The Gaming Mind’ Review: Games Therapists Play
Videogame fans were elated in April when developer Square Enix released its long-awaited remake of “Final Fantasy VII,” considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time.

42 felony cases tied to this week’s looting so far, Kim Foxx says
The Cook County state’s attorney’s office announced Thursday that there have been 42 felony charges filed so far tied to this week’s looting downtown and in other neighborhoods. The vast majority of the felonies tied to the looting —nearly 67% — are for burglary/looting, the state’s attorney’s office said. In one case where prosecutors declined to approve felony charges that were earlier sought by the CPD, detectives ended up agreeing with the office’s decision, Foxx said. David Brown, who said the state’s office had not been aggressive enough in prosecuting looting cases in June following widespread civil unrest in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police office. Additional looting related cases are still under investigation by police and will be reviewed by the state’s attorney’s office if felony charges are deemed appropriate, Foxx said.

Can Ben Wheatley’s Rebecca match the delirious intensity of Hitchcock’s classic?
The Independent employs reporters around the world to bring you truly independent journalism. Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 novel Rebecca was the source for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 Oscar winner starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier. This was Hitchcock’s first movie in the US and was a runaway success. The usual arguments have been mustered that Du Maurier’s novel needed a modern-day “makeover” as if it had become as draughty and cob-webbed as Manderley itself, the imposing English country house in which much of the story is set. The new film is scripted by Jane Goldman, whose credits include Kingsman, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and The Woman in Black.

Babyteeth: The teen film tackling cancer with humour
Image copyright Picturehouse Image caption Eliza Scanlen plays Milla, 16, who has cancer and is determined it won't cramp her lifestyleAre teen films getting more realistic when showing an experience of serious illness? The makers of Australian teen drama Babyteeth certainly hope so. "The young teen with cancer can become the parent or the adult in the family, and that was really essential information for me. Babyteeth director Shannon Murphy agrees with James that "teenagers get frustrated by being defined as 'the sick girl' at school." "Whereas with this film, there's a reverence for Milla's story and the decisions she makes in the film.
The hidden toilet humour in a Titian masterpiece
Smack dab in the centre of his canvas, Titian has carefully, if curiously, positioned a caper flower, whose ivory petals and radiant bristle of exploding stamens are rendered with meticulous botanical detail. But it is the plant’s medicinal use, since antiquity, as a natural carminative (or remedy for excessive flatulence) that reveals the artist is truly letting rip with some mischievous fun. In Titian’s retelling of Ovid’s myth, Bacchus has been hoisted by his own pungent petard, as Shakespeare, who likewise loved toilet humour, might have said. Famously fond of flatulence himself, Shakespeare couldn’t resist squeezing potty puns into his plays. Hanging in the air behind the phrase ‘thereby hangs a tail’, from Othello, for example, is the lingering whiff of broken wind.

Florida Sheriff Who Threatened to Deputize ‘Lawful Gun Owners’ Against BLM Faces Unrelated Felony Charges
A controversial sheriff in Florida was reportedly given two choices: immediately resign his position and never seek another elected office or face felony charges. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels made national headlines earlier this year when he threatened to make “special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county” in order to “handle” Black Lives Matter protesters who showed up in his community. “And if you come to Clay County and you think for one second, we’ll bend our backs for you, you’re sadly mistaken,” he said one month ago.

A stash of beer and gum that dates back to the 1980s was discovered hidden behind the shelves of a Washington library
(CNN) It was a real whodunit when a stash of beer and gum from the 1980s was discovered behind the walls of the Mystery section at a Washington library. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the Walla Walla Public Library has been closed to the public since March and has since taken the time to do some renovations, library director Erin Wells told CNN.

Alex Newell gets to be himself on ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,’ and it feels fabulous
“They changed the character to make Mo more like Alex,” says Newell, who turns 28 this month, in a recent phone conversation from his home in New York City. She learns that Mo sings in a church choir but has been hiding his sexuality and gender-fluidity from his fellow parishioners. Newell impulsively came out to her at age 17, shouting the words to her right before bed. Newell works closely with the show’s wardrobe, hair, and makeup teams to come up with Mo’s look. And while the actor shares his character’s love of unconventional fashion — and a breezy, buoyant, quick-witted personality — he insists he’s more restrained and guarded than Mo.

Review: Teenage love carries into afterlife in syrupy 'Endless'
Adam GrahamDetroit News Film CriticThe sappy supernatural teenage romance "Endless" can't end soon enough. If it was only a teenage spin on "Ghost" it might be fine, but "Endless" gets distracted with frivolous side plots and is weighed down with melodrama. Shipp is Riley, a California high school senior who is headed off to law school at Georgetown in the fall. Director Scott Speer, who navigated the waters of doomed teenage romance more effectively in 2018's "Midnight Sun," can't raise "Endless" above its cable movie feel. In trying to explain the unexplainable, "Endless" hits a dead end.
Review: Racism permeates the horror of 'Lovecraft Country'
Horrible things abound in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country.” Wicked wizards, shape-shifters, gargantuan night monsters, murderous ghosts, the list goes on. And yet the show’s central horror is unfortunately no fantasy, which makes it all the more horrific. The scariest thing in “Lovecraft Country” is its eye-opening depiction of American racism. Created by Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) and Misha Green (“Underground’) and based on the novel by Matt Ruff, “Lovecraft Country” follows many of the standard dictums of modern fantasy/horror. But the dark, disturbing cloud of racism is ever present and seeps into every corner of the show like a wraith.
Review: 'Teenage Bounty Hunters' loses its way
Tom LongSpecial to The Detroit News“Teenage Bounty Hunters” is pretty much as good and bad as you’d expect it to be. They play Sterling and Blair Wesley, wealthy 16-year-old fraternal twins and besties. They attend a preppy Christian school and while Sterling is dubiously devout, Blair is just doubtful. A car accident introduces them to Bowser (Kadeem Hardison), a low-rent bounty hunter, and results in their helping him corral a bad guy. Eventually it moves to maudlin moments and the bounty hunter angle fades.

Sumner Redstone leaves behind a private life more lurid than his films, writes TOM LEONARD
There were just two things that kept Sumner Redstone happy each day in his final years, said a girlfriend — sex and steak. Redstone, who famously liked to say that 'content is king', became the most powerful man in Hollywood relatively late in life. Redstone Sr later set up a chain of drive-in cinemas, reportedly with Underworld money, undermining his son's claims to have been entirely self-made. Sumner went to Harvard, learned Japanese in a year and was enlisted to help break Japanese codes during World War II. Sumner Redstone, who repeatedly sued members of his own family and who never shied from a fight, would probably be delighted.

‘The Devil All the Time’: Tom Holland Is a Saint Turned Sinner

With C-Suite Shake-Up, WarnerMedia Sharpens Its Battle-Ax for the Streaming Wars
Kevin Reilly, who had been running HBO Max and those three channels under Greenblatt, was also pushed out. “We had two content organizations, and they both worked on HBO Max,” Kilar told Bloomberg.

Did Desi Really Love Lucy? The Scandal That Rocked TV’s First Family
The perfection that Lucille Ball and her husband broadcast to American homes veneered a much more complicated, intriguing truth. I dove deep into Lucille and Desi’s marriage while researching my new novel, The Queen of Tuesday. If a TV offer meant she couldn’t stay close enough to keep watch on Desi, Lucille wouldn’t accept.

Need Parenting Help as the Pandemic Persists? Send in Daniel Tiger
For parents of toddlers, the song of the summer belongs not to Taylor Swift, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, or The Chicks, but a four-year-old animated tiger. “When you feel so mad that you want to roar, take a deep breath and count to four,” sings Daniel Tiger in one of the more resonate tracks from the PBS Kids series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. “That’s what’s so brilliant about every episode,” Ellen Doherty, executive producer of Daniel Tiger and chief creative officer of Fred Rogers Productions, recently told Vanity Fair. “There’s just always something—an idea that’s designed for four-year-olds, but if you’re 44 or 64 or 24, you can learn something from it too.”Inspired by Daniel Striped Tiger, the puppet Fred Rogers used so memorably and deftly on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood debuted in 2012. In keeping with the precarious nature of the moment, the episode acknowledges that not even Daniel’s parents, the indefatigable Mom and Dad Tiger, have all the answers.
Was There Really a Palace Conspiracy Against Meghan Markle?
Almost immediately after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their decision to step back from their roles as senior royals in January, it became clear that pressures from the media were a major motivating factor. Over the next few months, palace insiders continued to talk to the tabloids about them, predicting their failure and chiding them for supposed selfishness. In May, a friend told the Sunday Times Magazine that pressures from the people inside the palace were also to blame for the royal exit. The book reports that Meghan was introduced Harry’s staff in August 2016, but they didn’t really start working together in a more formal capacity until news of Meghan and Harry’s relationship became public in late October. “Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears,” the source said.
AMC’s Latest Reopening Strategy? 15-Cent Tickets
In honor of the company’s 100-year anniversary, AMC Theatres will sell movie tickets for 15 cents apiece for one day—roughly the same price the theater charged when it first opened in 1920. After that reopening day AMC will continue to keep costs down, charging $5 for screenings of older films like Grease, Ghostbusters, and Back to the Future, according to Variety. The theater chain will also begin screening new releases, including the Russell Crowe thriller Unhinged and the long-awaited New Mutants, for around $10 a ticket. While there’s still endless trepidation about the riskiness of opening movie theaters at a time like this, chains like AMC are in dire need of fresh business. Keeping costs down is just one way to tempt moviegoers back into theaters.

Kaia Gerber Shows Off Her New (Punny) Tattoo With Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne turned 28 this week, and with her birthday came a slew of playful social media well-wishes from friends like Margaret Qualley—and a twinning tattoo reveal from Kaia Gerber. Gerber's slideshow of Instagram stories celebrating Delevingne included a capture of the two “holding feet," along with the caption “Happy birthday to my solemate Cara Delevingne.” It seems that the wordplay stuck, as a subsequent share showcased matching “solemate” tattoos etched along the models' arches.

And what better way to mark a 2020 birthday than with a reminder to stay silly?

Kyle Richards: Kendra Wilkinson Wants to Bang My Husband!
This seems to the path that Kendra Wilkinson has chosen, and bizarrely, it’s brought her into conflict with another reality star. In fact, this feud might develop into something just as wild as anything that Kendra experienced during her days on The Girls Next Door.

Most of us can probably remember hearing the ice cream truck jingle from down the street and running over to order from a selection of Chipwiches, Blue Bunny ice cream cups and snow cones.

And when we go off the deep end — stand back.”Don’t hold your breath to see any dark turns from Dubrow, though.

Pop star Katy Perry is doubling down on a controversial tweet defending comedian Ellen DeGeneres, who recently came under fire after employees of her daytime talk show reported a toxic work environment. “I started that tweet off not undermining anyone else’s experience,” Perry told The Times.

Watch ‘The Capture,’ but don’t believe your eyes
The nearly nine-minute clip of George Floyd dying is among the past century’s most powerful and undeniable pieces of footage. But “The Capture” reminds us that now, one of our most historically dependable faculties — sight — has been rendered unreliable. AdvertisementBy the way, I hope I’m not making “The Capture” sound like a drab lecture in deepfakery or a lesson of any kind. Bad cops are using deepfakery in order to help convict bad guys, just as bad guys are using deepfakery to help convict good guys, leaving us to ponder more angles than you might expect going into the show. “The Capture” is frightening, a little brainy, and damning of those who refuse to recognize deepfakery for the crisis it has become.

Mandy, episode 1 and 2 review: Diane Morgan's sitcom is simply enjoyably escapist comedy
Your constant failure allows other people to shine.” That was the well-meaning advice offered to the hapless heroine of loveable new sitcom Mandy (BBC Two). Morgan also won fans for her supporting turns in parenting comedy Motherland and Ricky Gervais’s After Life. To differentiate the character from Cunk, Morgan pulls a sort of permanent lopsided pout. There was something endearingly cartoonish about Mandy, like a Viz comic come to life. Mandy proved a pretty handy spider-squelcher until she got distracted by a text message and the tarantulas claimed a death toll of 17.

Narrated by Hugh Bonneville, this was a wonderful hour in Captain Tom’s company. The documentary didn’t dwell on his later achievements, though, but chose to look back at Captain Tom’s life. He nursed his beloved wife, Pamela, through dementia, visiting her every day for the last five years of her life.
Mandy review: Diane Morgan’s new comedy is fine in small doses

Mandy Carter is a woman trying to stay afloat in the age of the gig economy. It’s to Morgan’s credit that she manages to make her anti-heroine, who lies compulsively and has no discernible conscience, remotely sympathetic. Mandy is fine in small doses but she could easily outstay her welcome.
Mickey Guyton: Country singer says getting into the industry would have been easier ‘if I were white with blonde hair’
Country singer Mickey Guyton is opening up about the second-guessing she has faced as a Black woman in her industry.

Should We Conserve Parasites? Apparently, Yes
Parasites are bad news for both people and animals, the thinking goes, because they weaken the body or transmit disease. They are ringing a warning bell, calling parasites vital for the survival of species that, as odd as it may seem, actually depend on them. Just as endangered animals need to be protected, they say, so, too, do the worms, mites, lice, and leeches that infest all living creatures. In fact, she says, specific species of parasites have evolved along with their squirrel hosts to help ward off other invading parasites that could kill them. “If we are translocating animals, we should think about which [parasites] they have and whether they should be translocated too,” Hopkins says.

"Madonna has been an artist that I've listened to my whole life," Dua said in an Apple Music interview Thursday with Zane Lowe. Dua will release a whole album of remixed songs from her Future Nostalgia, titled Club Future Nostalgia, on Friday, Aug. 21. The collection, which The Blessed Madonna also curated and mixed into a mixtape, will also feature a version of "Physical" with Gwen Stefani.
The Throwback: How Ryan Cabrera became a household name with 'On the Way Down'
You’re listening to Ryan Cabrera’s “On the Way Down” and you know all the words. On June 12, 2004, Cabrera released “On the Way Down” and from then on you heard it nonstop all summer long. That was definitely a cool moment — they probably thought I was nuts.”Of course, you don’t get invited to MTV’s video chart show without a pretty popular music video in tow. But that didn’t stop Cabrera from devising a way to attract more attention. Image zoom Marc Andrew Deley/FilmMagicSixteen years later, “On the Way Down” is arguably the song Cabrera is still best known for — well, that, and his impressively high hair.

She later joins her cocktail-sipping, art-dealing, wealthy playboy father, Felix (Murray), to tail her man for clues around his various Manhattan haunts. "I never thought I could do something with Bill again, because people have such a fondness of him and Lost in Translation. She also connected with Jones' ability to identify with the experience of — as the daughter of music mastermind Quincy Jones — growing up with a larger-than-life dad. "Sofia has a quiet power and elegance that I have been in awe of since the first time we met," Jones adds via email.

Netflix Selling Sunset season 4 release date
It wouldn't be much of an exaggeration to say Selling Sunset has been one of the only things that has made 2020 worthwhile. So, what do we know about Selling Sunset season 4 so far? Has Selling Sunset season 4 been confirmed by Netflix? What could happen in Selling Sunset season 4? Could another Selling Sunset wedding be on the cards?
Justin Hartley’s Friends Are "Glad" Ex Chrishell Stause Is "No Longer in His Life"
Justin Hartley's friends are reportedly "glad" Chrishell Stause is no longer in his life. Chrishell aired details of her split from Justin on Netflix's Selling Sunset, and I'm honestly still coming down from the drama of it all. Netflix recently blessed us with season 3 of Selling Sunset, which is clearly the best and most deranged reality show of our lifetime. Like, to the point where it's still playing out in real time—and yes, I'm specifically talking about Chrishell Stause's divorce from This Is Us star Justin Hartley. “Justin’s friends are glad that Chrishell is no longer in his life and that he can move on,” the source said.
KUWTK teaser shows Kylie clapping back at Kris while doing shots
We're now just a month away from Keeping Up with The Kardashians returning to our screens and in preparation E! has released a teaser of one of the episodes which shows Kylie doing shots in the family kitchen before shouting at mum Kris. Eventually she shouts, "let's go or not go," and gives Corey and Kylie the kind of steely glare only Kris Jenner can do. But the most spine-chilling look from momager Kris comes when Corey tells Kylie, "we don't rush, we just float through life like unicorns." As you can imagine this does not go down well with Kris, who shouts are the pair again, before Kylie responds, "I'm taking a shot, let me f***ing live."
Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall shares personal poem about self-loathing
Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall has taken to Instagram to share a personal poem she wrote about self-loathing and societal expectations. Fairplay to Jade for being so open and honest about such a complex issue, which will no doubt help fans feeling a similar way. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site. The comment section was filled with fans and celebs alike sharing support for Jade, as well as their own experiences. The Little Mix singer previously revealed on Twitter that a heavily Photoshopped magazine shoot had made her want a nose job.
Will Smith is working on a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot
Will Smith may be a major movie star now, but one role that he'll be forever associated with is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's Will. The clip went viral in a big way and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith has now teamed up with Cooper to adapt the one-off trailer into a brand new drama series called Bel-Air. Jason MerrittCooper will co-write the script as well as direct and executive produce the series, while Smith will also executive produce alongside original show producers Quincy Jones and Benny Medina and creators Andy and Susan Borowitz.

Kendall Jenner and her rumoured new boyfriend are flirting on Instagram
Two days ago Kendall posted a very sultry selfie to Instagram showing her flawless make-up and those cheekbones (you know, the ones that could slice stone), and captioned the image with a strawberry emoji. In and amongst the many comments was one from Kendall's rumoured new boyfriend, basketball player Devin Booker. Then in July Kendall posted pictures of a road-trip showing her visiting some rock formations, and she explained in the caption that the pictures were taken a "few weeks ago."

How Much Did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Mansion Cost?
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly dropped over $14 million on their new Santa Barbara mansion. The couple hopes to put down roots in the area and give their son Archie "as normal a life as possible." Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently moved out of Los Angeles and into their brand-new home in Santa Barbara, and wow. Which, considering Meghan and Harry literally had to deal with drones trying to snap pictures of their son playing while they were at Tyler Perry's house, makes sense. Harry and Meghan never intended to make Los Angeles their home.
The Queen Has No Drama with Kate Middleton and Prince William
The Queen finds it "refreshing" that there's never any drama with Kate Middleton and Prince William. Her Majesty has been "relegating royal duties” to the couple in preparation for William eventually becoming King. Today in passive aggressive royal sources, an insider just hit up Us Weekly to inform everyone that the Queen is super into Kate Middleton and Prince William right now because there's never any "drama" with them. But the whole "never any drama or scandal" comment kinda seems a little pointed to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Either way, apparently the Queen is “already relegating royal duties” to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Reese Witherspoon Wanted to Be the First Female President of the United States When She Was a Kid
Reese Witherspoon actually wanted to be a U.S. president when she was a kid. It's hard to believe Reese Witherspoon once had aspirations that didn't involve being an actress, but you learn something new everyday, I guess! Yes, she has her production company, a whole clothing line, and multiple awards to her name now, but as it turns out, Reese wanted to be the first female president of the United States when she was a kid! "In the 3rd grade our teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, I raised my hand and said, 'I want to be the first female President of the United States of America.' "My thoughts today are with woman in our country, especially the young Black and Brown girls of our nation who have watched their mothers hold up their families, their communities, their cities, their states," Reese added.
Michael Costello Dragged Kylie Jenner for Not Tagging Designers
Designer Michael Costello called out Kylie Jenner for not tagging designers on Instagram. Michael Costello, the Project Runway alum who has gone on to dress Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, and Cardi B, just eviscerated Kylie Jenner for not tagging lesser-known designers on Instagram. JSYK: Kylie never seems to forget to tag big designers like Dior, Chanel, and Maison Margiela, as BuzzFeed previously mentioned. Most recently, Kylie celebrated her birthday and made sure to tag Balmain's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, and thank him for her dress. Knowing Kylie's history of tagging and not tagging, Michael saw this post and decided to comment.
Cara Delevingne and Kaia Gerber Have Matching Foot Tattoos
Kaia Gerber, Cara's BFF, shared pic of her and Cara together in honor of the big day, and she revealed they have matching foot tattoos. But best friendship takes on a whole new meaning when you and your BFF hit up a tattoo parlor and get permanent body ink, kinda like Cara Delevingne and Kaia Gerber! In celebration of Cara's 28th birthday, Kaia hopped on Instagram and made sure to wish her a big fat happy birthday in her Stories. Of the many pictures Kaia shared, she made sure to post one of her and Cara's matching BFF tattoo, writing, "Happy birthday to my solemate." While this tattoo seems like a BFD, here's a friendly reminder that Cara doesn't only have a matching tattoo with Kaia—she shares another BFF tattoo (a script "DD" on her torso) with model Jourdan Dunn.

Melissa Lingafelt accused her ex-boyfriend Drake Bell of abuse. In a series of TikToks over the past day, Melissa Lingafelt, who goes by the stage name Jimi Ono, detailed allegations of abuse by her ex-boyfriend and former Nickelodeon actor, Drake Bell.

Katie Holmes' Horny #BidenHarris2020 Post Surprises Fans
But Katie Holmes was very, very excited—so much so that she posted an Instagram thirst trap to celebrate: a steamy shot from her InStyle photoshoot earlier this year. "#BidenHarris2020," Holmes captioned the photo of herself on her Instagram. Over 64,000 people liked the post, although many in the comments were a little confused and taken aback by the post's undeniably horny vibes.

Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause's Divorce Drama Explained
But like so many other Sunset Strippers (yes, that's what I'm calling us), I now find myself heavily invested in Chrishell Stause and Justin Hartley's divorce. Like "Chrishell was married to THIS IS US STAR JUSTIN HARTLEY," you know? But then Season 3 hit like a ton of bricks being used to build a $40 million mansion: Justin filed for divorce.

Colton Underwood said The Bachelor took advantage of his ex, Cassie Randolph. He said “too many things” have happened and he doesn’t feel comfortable with the show on a professional or personal level. He also said Chris Harrison tried to make him seem like a "controlling or angry person." Uhh, I know there are big changes going down on The Bachelorette set, but if you can direct your attention toward Colton Underwood for a second, there’s some major drama unfolding. When Colton went on Reality Steve’s podcast this week, he exposed so much about Bachelor production and revealed why he doesn’t feel comfortable around the show at all.

Holland Taylor Answers Every Question We Have About Legally Blonde
That’s actually good to be moving around, to have change, because it’s like — life is really, really strange. And I was actually sick when I did it, which was a great life lesson. Tony Richmond was a great, great director of photography. Did that bother you at the time, that you were sort of put into these character roles, or these smaller cameo parts? I really, really think that’s a remarkably clever Twitter account.
No Sense, No Decency
(That was before Senator Joe.) The theater is an emotional orgasm.”Just two years after that story ran — right around the time Kroeger met O’Horgan — Holzer was under indictment on 248 counts of defrauding investors. That was not the case with Senator Joe. Once the performance started, the reaction I remember was not derision but bafflement: Senator Joe felt under-rehearsed and chaotic, and the actors looked jittery and unsure of their movements. When his papers were being archived, Kroeger, who went on to become a set designer, made sure that the Senator Joe score and scripts were included.
Sufjan Stevens’s New Video Stars Renegade Dance Creator Jalaiah Harmon
So we shouldn’t be surprised that for his “America” follow-up, “Video Game,” Sufjan Stevens tapped Jalaiah Harmon, creator of the hyperviral Renegade dance on TikTok. Not quite the pairing for hip-hop dance, but Harmon makes it work, dancing and popping bubbles in front of colorful neon screens. “The main takeaway of ‘Video Game’ for me is: your worth (invaluable) should never be based on other people’s approval (ephemeral),” Stevens explained in a statement. “Jalaiah epitomizes all of this,” he added, “and I’m truly inspired by her. So I thought, ‘what if we could get Jalaiah to star in a ‘dance video’ about not wanting to star in a ‘dance video?’ I’m so honored she agreed.” So don’t be surprised if you hear a Sufjan song the next time you open TikTok.

Dolly Parton to Save Christmas With New Holiday Album
Photo: Stephen Lovekin/ShutterstockAt this point, we’re surely not getting out of this pandemic before the end of the year, but here’s something to keep up your Christmas spirit: Dolly Parton will release her first holiday album in 30 years, A Holly Dolly Christmas, on October 2, Billboard revealed in a new cover story. The album will feature both holiday classics and new songs — one of which will soundtrack a Netflix movie of the same name, Christmas on the Square, in which Parton reportedly also plays an angel, because of course. “As the scripture says, ‘To whom much is given, much is required,’” Parton told Billboard, explaining her goal of making people happy. “So I look at my life every day and think that God expects it of me.” And we are grateful for her! Parton’s last album was her 2018 soundtrack to the movie Dumplin’; her 1990 holiday album was the covers collection Home for Christmas.
Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards Defend ‘Outing’ Denise Richards on RHOBH
Cohen had Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards on as guests, and he lobbed this hardball from viewer Lisa: “You’re both mothers. Why would you think it’s okay to out Denise, if it’s even true about her affair with Brandi, if neither of you were there to witness it? Teddi answers, “You know, I don’t think I ever looked at it as ‘outing’ Denise. And she kept saying, ‘I don’t even talk to Brandi. I don’t even talk to Brandi.’ And then all of the women, including Denise, were like, ‘Just say it!
Bette Midler to Writes Kid’s Book About NYC Mandarin Duck
The Divine Ms. Midler and the Divine Mr. Mandarin. Bette Midler announced on Thursday she’ll be publishing a children’s picture book with Random House next year about, wait for it, New York’s hot duck. Lest you’ve forgotten because we live in hell and 2018 was 74 years ago, the hot duck was a colorful mandarin duck that appeared in Central Park and captivated us all. Midler’s book, titled The Tale of the Mandarin Duck: A Modern Fable, will feature photographs from Michiko Kakutani and illustrations from Joana Avillez. Until then, I’ll be picturing Midler doing the “You Don’t Own Me” routine from the end of First Wives Club, but it’s her, Diane Keaton, and the mandarin duck.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Announce New Pregnancy Through Song
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen ain’t your parents’ … parents. All the while, they’re juxtaposed with imagery of two majestic wild beach horsies, who are for sure also in love and probably horse-married. At the end of the video, they’re joined by their kids, Luna and Miles, and at the 3:21 mark, they definitely tease a baby bump. If this is John and Chrissy’s way of announcing that they’re expecting a third child, it sure is metaphorical. Thankfully they did not juxtapose that part of the music video with imagery of a very pregnant horse.
Katy Perry’s ‘SMILE’ Music Video Is Only on Facebook: WATCH
Photo: Katy Perry/FacebookOf all the clownery, buffoonery, and tomfoolery to come across our newsfeeds on this here Thursday, Katy Perry making the music video for her new single “Smile” exclusively available on her Facebook page really takes the cake cream pie. Perry begins the video dressed in black-and-white business-clown chic, until she plays a magical video game called “SMILE,” which transforms her into a much more glittery, happy clown. The video game is a CGI carnivalesque horror in which Katy Perry’s avatar is a Big Eyes version of herself.

The Legend of Korra Is Coming to Netflix, Time for Us to Discuss
Photo: NickelodeonTo adopt the voice of the old-timey radio announcer who does the “previously on” segments for The Legend of Korra, there’s big news in Republic City. After the runaway success that Avatar: The Last Airbender had on Netflix this summer, the streaming service announced that the Nickelodeon animated series’s sequel series, The Legend of Korra, would be coming to the platform on August 14. So, what can you expect from Korra if you just binged Avatar for the first time this summer? Zoë Haylock: I came into Korra knowing two things: I loved The Last Airbender and that Korra eventually got gay. Aang was the Avatar in a world that desperately needed him; 70 years later, they couldn’t care less about Korra.

Photo: Comedy CentralTwo Comedy Central series are moving to a new home over at HBO Max. The shows’ first seasons will become available on HBO Max sometime in 2021 and be followed by the debuts of the newly ordered seasons, which will be Max Original exclusives on the service, sometime later. The first season of Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, meanwhile, is now exclusively available on HBO Max. This new move is part of a series of big changes at Comedy Central in recent months, which includes a new partnership between HBO Max and Comedy Central Productions. TBS’s Search Party recently made a similar move to HBO Max, so at least The Other Two and South Side will be in good company.
Dua Lipa, Missy Elliott, Madonna Take ‘Levitating’ Higher on Remix

The party continues tomorrow August 14, when the video for the “Levitating” remix drops.
What Do Kaia Gerber and Cara Delevingne’s Matching Tattoos Mean?
Photo: London Entertainment/ShutterstockA passionate, possibly erotic friendship is afoot between model Kaia Gerber and model-slash-actress Cara Delevingne. Now they have matching pun tattoos on their feet that read “solemate.” Yeah, they’re definitely not gonna regret that. In another recent social-media post, Gerber posted an image of her and Delevingne wearing a single cardigan (yes, the Taylor Swift one). I mention the past relationship stuff because Delevingne and Benson got a bunch of matching tattoos, and my Pavlovian response to the terms “Cara Delevingne,” “tattoo,” and “matching” is to smell a new relationship on the horizon. But Kaia and Cara have never commented one way or the other.

When I say “verbal abuse,” I mean imagine the worst type of verbal abuse you could ever imagine, and that was what I got. The entire concert Drake wasn’t who you’d expect him to be like.

Laughing Into the Void
Santiago Angel, host of “Take It Outside Comedy,” at a Fort Greene show. The summer has brought back some illusions of normalcy, but what hasn’t returned is that sense of freewheeling abandon. Comedy benefits from trapping the laughs in, allowing one joke to ride off the momentum of the previous one. Patton quickly clocked what was unusual: that we were all gathered outside watching a comedy show. But now we have, as Patton called it, “filthy hoo-ha talk” floating into the air for anyone to hear.
Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek Accused of Nonconsensual Sex, Exposing Himself
Photo: Wendy Redfern/RedfernsThree women have detailed allegations against Mark Kozelek, the folk musician who performs as Sun Kil Moon, including nonconsensual sexual encounters and exposing himself. A report by Pitchfork outlines allegations against Kozelek dating back to 2014, when he was lauded in indie circles for the Sun Kil Moon album Benji. She met Kozelek, then 47, after the show, and he gave her his phone number, later inviting her to his hotel room after 1 a.m. Andrea continued a relationship with Kozelek for three months, saying some sex was consensual, but Kozelek pressured her into acts like public sex. Kozelek is readying a new album as Sun Kil Moon called Welcome to Sparks, Nevada, for September 12.
Mike Schur Talks Morality and Ethics in The Good Place — and Everywhere Else
In this case, those things she tweeted were, I don’t know, eight, nine years ago. Through the Vulture website, I can say to that person: That’s not the way I personally would ever operate. Tina Fey’s statement when she asked for the blackface episodes of 30 Rock to be pulled off of streaming, I thought her statement was really good. The show ended when it did, but if it hadn’t, I don’t know what we’d be doing, because suddenly the whole world is talking about morality and ethics. Maybe that would have been good, I don’t know.

Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” gets a clubbier update with the help of legends Madonna and Missy Elliott. The song will appear on the upcoming remix LP Club Future Nostalgia, which the Grammy winner worked on with DJ and producer the Blessed Madonna (formerly known as the Black Madonna). The “Levitating” remix turns the song into a fast-paced romp with Lipa and Madonna trading verses and harmonizing together on the tongue-twistingly sped-up track. The beat is no match for Elliott, who offers a flirty, freaky new verse of her own. “Madonna has been an artist that I’ve listened to my whole life,” Lipa told Zane Lowe in an interview for Apple Music.

Mickey Guyton will release her third EP for Capitol Nashville on September 11th. Guyton’s performance of “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” at Country Radio Seminar in February and the June release of “Black Like Me” helped catapult the singer into the country-music conversation and spurred interest in a proper album.

The Devil All the Time Is Not the Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson Collaboration We Wanted
I could not have been more excited when I heard there was going to be a movie starring Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgård, and Sebastian Stan.

From Tom Holland's seemingly Southern accent and Sebastian Stan's tiny hat to Robert Pattinson's oddly seductive taste test, the whole trailer is one wild ride. Granted, this isn't the crossover I had in mind when I envisioned a movie with Holland, Pattinson, and Stan, but I guess it's the one we got. You can see for yourself when the film premieres on Netflix on Sept. 16.

How Misha Green leaned into the horror of ‘Lovecraft Country’
Advertisement“Lovecraft Country” was adapted from Matt Ruff’s novel by Misha Green, the series’ writer and showrunner. We wanted to have our “secret society” episode and our haunted house episode and our body horror episode. Beyond putting Black characters front and center in the horror genre, did you also look to subvert the monster, ghost, body horror, and other subsets? You don’t want the audience to say, “Oh they just did ‘The Amityville Horror’ there,” you always want to add something new. — using 10 frames less in the way that makes sense for the story.”Also, for me, in horror things look better when you just see it for a second because then your imagination takes over.
Restored classic film from the '50s is a dreamy essay about jazz and summer
The key to enjoying “Jazz on a Summer’s Day” may be in knowing that the movie is as interested in the second part of its title as the first. There’s also Gerry Mulligan, Mahalia Jackson and — perhaps for that woman who doesn’t like jazz? In addition to the music, “Summer’s Day,” which is included in the National Film Registry, is a fascinating, focused piece of history. One woman, wearing a red dress, a hat with a bright red band, brilliant red lipstick and a shocking red cardigan, is literally a study in scarlet. Jazz on a Summer’s Day ??? out of 4 stars Rating: Unrated, contains no objectionable material.
A staple of Minnesota summer, art fairs like Uptown have hit the pause button

Nobody knows what’s going on.”A similar reality hit the Uptown Art Fair, which would’ve turned 57 last weekend.

Lawyer for Madeleine McCann suspect claims key witness is a criminal who swapped information for police favours
Lawyers representing the German paedophile suspected of abducting Madeleine McCann say that a key prosecution witness is a criminal who swapped information for police favours. Christian Brückner, 43, is alleged to have told a friend he “knew all about” what happened to Madeleine while out drinking in a bar in 2017. But now, Friedrich Fülscher, a lawyer representing Brückner, says that the informant may later, in return, have got early release from a sentence he was serving in a foreign country. "If this is the same person, I think it's the worst witness you can get,” Mr Fülscher told Sky News. “A human who has spent his whole life cheating people for his own benefit is never a reliable witness."

As the characters of “Summer” entwine, like branches over a road, I had the feeling that no novelist has come closer to describing the particular sad informed madness of our times.

A bird named for a Confederate general officially has a new identity
The organization has announced it is renaming the McCown's longspur , a little prairie bird native to the Southwest and northern Plains that originally was named after Confederate Gen. John Porter McCown. It may seem like a small thing, to change the name of a single bird. Still, organizations like Bird Names for Birds , which supports the removal of eponymous and honorific bird names, says a single name change is not enough. There are still almost 150 other bird named after people in North America alone, some of them bearing the names of known racists and anti-abolitionists.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Family members say a man shot and killed by Las Vegas police after taking his mother hostage at gunpoint in their mobile home battled mental illness and drug addiction, a newspaper reported.

Chris Harrison Has Left ‘The Bachelorette’ Set
From CosmopolitanChris Harrison has left The Bachelorette set. Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette remains the most confusing thing ever, and on top of everything else, Chris Harrison seems to have left the locked-down set. Also, Free Britney.”As you’re likely well aware, (1) Chris Harrison hosts The Bachelorette, and (2) The Bachelorette is currently filming. Meaning that since Chris Harrison left set, he‘ll presumably have to take a full two-week quarantine break before diving back in. Either way, ABC is offering basically zero info about what’s going on over in Palm Springs, so it looks like we’ll have to wait till the season airs to find out WTF is happening—including why Chris left and when he’s returning.

The many moods of Skullcrusher (who’s not as scary as her moniker)
The artist who performs as Skullcrusher crafts work that on the surface is hardly as menacing as her moniker. The simmering, acoustic guitar-centered songs on her debut EP will not collapse your noggin with aggressive rage, distorted noise or irrational violence. The solo project of the Los Angeles-based artist born Helen Ballentine revels in tense moments, hard emotions and uncertain outcomes. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the tenor of the times, Skullcrusher leans into solitude at nearly every turn. The video for “Trace” is set, somewhat ridiculously, in Renaissance times, where the artist frolics in fields with friends.

‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was built on a lie
They have also forced me to deal with two uncomfortable truths: Brown never surrendered with his hands up, and Wilson was justified in shooting Brown. The unarmed 18-year-old also became a potent symbol of the lack of trust between African Americans and law enforcement. Although some witnesses state that Brown held his hands up at shoulder level with his palms facing outward for a brief moment, these same witnesses describe Brown then dropping his hands and “charging” at Wilson. It was then that Johnson said Brown stopped, turned around with his hands up and said, “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” And, like that, “hands up, don’t shoot” became the mantra of a movement. Yet this does not diminish the importance of the real issues unearthed in Ferguson by Brown’s death.

WALSH: Beyoncé Is Not An Artistic Genius; We Should Stop Pretending She Is
If you happened to hear collective shouts of near-orgasmic adulation and delight echoing from sea to shining sea last Friday, it was because Beyonce released a new album. The screams were coming from music critics and others in media who want us to know that “Black Is King” is quite possibly the greatest artistic achievement of all time, equaled only by Beyonce’s other albums, together comprising a catalog of music so breathtaking and awe-inspiring that Beethoven, if he wasn’t deaf and also dead, would be plunged into despair upon realizing that he could never hope to produce anything as heart-wrenchingly beautiful. The latest offering from Queen Bey — released as a visual album on Disney+ as a companion piece to last year’s abysmal “Lion King” remake, and also as a traditional album on iTunes — is, according to NPR, a “sumptuous search for divine identity” that “resonates deeply.” Critics at the New York Times were beside themselves with joy, using words like “overwhelming” and “extravaganza” and comparing Beyonce to “the rising sun.” The AV Club exclaimed that the pop album inspired by a Disney cartoon is “an unfettered celebration.” Mashable declared that Beyonce is “the only artist to exist at her level.” She is, in a word, “magical.” Phrases like “a tribute to her artistry” and “supreme black art” have been wielded by gobsmacked critics.

Inside 'Dollhouse,' An Engaging But Deeply Unpleasant Film
While it’s the point of the film to exaggerate real-world situations to comment on misogyny, the cynicism and unpleasantness that permeates the film overshadows the humor and message. Each of the voice actors injected life into their characters, and their energy and personalities saved the film from becoming lifeless. Once a subject begins to be explored in an interesting manner, the film pivots hard to its next topic. Without giving anything away, the ending takes the film to an incredibly dark place though a deftly executed twist. The shallowness of the satire and disconcerting imagery bog down what could have been a perfectly fun or interesting film.
Cardi B And Megan Thee Stallion's 'WAP' Sucks The Mystery Out Of Sex
'WAP' is brazen and brash, and we’re probably meant to believe it’s empowering, but what it really does is deprive sex of mystery and remove seduction from the process. I just listened to “WAP,” Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new track that dropped Friday, much to the amusement of the internet. WAP stands for “wet a– p-ssy,” and apparently that’s what Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion want you to know they have. The only problem is that this whole thing is the least sexy song and video that have come around in a long time. For perspective, next to “WAP,” Lil Kim’s message is veiled as thoroughly as if it were in a burqa and niqab.

Chicago Looters Intent on Their 'Reparation' Terrorized Sick Kids at Ronald McDonald House

Chicago: You know, someone should hold these looters accountable…
We finally know what it takes for Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to give up the ghost and declare the rioting and looting to be, well… rioting and looting. It looks like the Mayor huddled with the Chicago PD and they’ve decided to launch an investigation.

Kamala Harris Called Jussie Smollett's Hate Crime Hoax A 'Modern Day Lynching'
Kamala Harris, recently named as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s pick for vice president, supported “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett when he staged a hoax assault against himself. In 2019, Harris tweeted her sympathies about Smollett, who falsely claimed to be the victim of a hate crime.

GOP insiders: Trump can't win
Republican insiders are more convinced than Democrats that Donald Trump is so far behind Hillary Clinton that he can't win in November. “The problem is, that even when things go wrong with Hillary, Trump cannot stay out of his own way long enough just let her have a bad news cycle. He's got to show some form of proof of life, and soon.”Added an Iowa Republican: “Trump Time is running through the bottle of the hour glass. “Trump got away with a lot in the GOP debate that he could not get away with in a debate with Hillary,” the Republican said. One Michigan Republican said Trump “looks petty and scared.” Two Florida insiders — one from each party — called the GOP nominee “chickens---t.”Added an Iowa Republican: “Someone has failed to teach Trump the basics of candidate school.

‘Real Housewives of New York’ may have serious mental health, addiction issues, says psychologist
If you’ve ever said, “These people need therapy” while watching “The Real Housewives of New York,” you’re in luck. “These people need help. We are verifiably looking at some people with serious mental health and addiction issues who really deserve to feel better and be healthier,” Thomas told us, based on her review of the show. But part of the challenge in getting help is the stigma surrounding the treatment of substance abuse in the United States. People will make it more about your personality, but what we’re seeing is pain that spills over into different forms.”

Halo Infinite delay: Is Xbox in trouble?

Microsoft’s biggest concern right now is making sure “Halo Infinite” doesn’t keep that reputation.

'VIP seats for everyone': Video of Britain's first socially distanced concert goes viral
True, it lacks the shoulder-to-shoulder intimacy of pre-coronavirus performances, but a concert at Great Britain's first venue designed for social distancing is getting rave reviews after a video of it went viral. Turns out, people like packed houses less than a Justin Bieber or Ariana Grande performance might lead you to believe. Perhaps the best replica of Tuesday night's concert would be a drive-in Nelly show, while the worst would be last weekend's packed Smash Mouth concert in South Dakota. In comparison, the U.S. is on track to break 5.2 million reported cases and now more than 166,000 deaths. That said, the U.K.'s population of 67 million represents only a fraction of the 330 million people living in the U.S.

'Project Power' review: Jamie Foxx and a new super-power drug star in an old formula
(CNN) One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you burst into flames like the Human Torch in "Project Power," one of those Netflix action movies that probably would make some money if released into theaters. The undercooked plot works just well enough to fuel this vehicle for Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, mashing up old movies in a fast-paced package. Essentially, shadowy forces have begun distributing an illicit drug that provides a temporary burst of superpowers in five-minute increments. The formula, though, is a trifle unstable in a "Forrest Gump" sort-of way, meaning users can't be entirely sure as to what benefits they're going to get. Foxx is The Major, whose motivations for trying to locate the source of the pills -- leaving bodies in his wake -- remains more personal, if not a whole lot more inventive.
Pop culture nostalgia can help ease the pain of 2020
This column from CNN Senior Entertainment Writer Lisa Respers France will become a weekly newsletter later this summer. Many of us are taking solace in old movies, television shows and music to try and keep ourselves from totally losing it. These days, pop culture is more than an escape or a guilty pleasure. Misogynoir is real, and folks might want to reevaluate the double standard applied to women in the male-dominated hip-hop game. This year has been all about the examination of power dynamics, and the music sphere should be no different.

Martin Birch, record producer behind the rise of heavy metal – obituary

Madeleine McCann: Suspect Christian B's lawyer says main witness against him is not reliable
The lawyer for the suspect in the Madeleine McCann case believes the main witness against him is a criminal who swapped information for police favours. Friedrich Fulscher said the informant who claimed suspect Christian B confessed his guilt to him may have done so purely to get help. Mr Fulscher told Sky News: "If this is the same person, I think it's the worst witness you can get. A human who has spent his whole life cheating people for his own benefit is never a reliable witness." And that's definitely what's happening in the Christian B case.

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' series finale elates fans with emotional, happy ending
The following contains details from the two-part series finale of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," “The End is at Hand,” and “What We’re Fighting For.”We all really needed a happy ending. ABC's first Marvel series, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," ended its seven-year run Wednesday night with a two-part series finale that was everything fans could have hoped for, a happily ever after in a bleak, pandemic world. "The most deserved happy ending in the history of television," wrote another. Although the ending was happy, fans were sad to see the series, which started not long after Marvel kicked off its many super team films with "The Avengers," was finally over. "I'll miss your forever #AgentsofSHIELD," another fan said, including images from the series premiere and the series finale in the tweet.
Books about mermaids are everywhere these days
Mermaid mania is coming around to books again — but this time, the trend has broadened to include nonfiction titles for readers of all ages. That’s the challenge faced by two new children’s books that survey mermaid tales from around the world: “The Very Short, Entirely True History of Mermaids,” by Sarah Laskow, and “The Mermaid Atlas,” by Anna Claybourne. Stories like this were a lesson.”Laskow’s book also devotes many pages to modern mermaids and science lessons on mermaid topics. Both books show that mermaids have always been a diverse group — a necessary corrective given the ugly #NotMyAriel backlash after Disney cast an African American actress as the lead in the hotly anticipated live action “The Little Mermaid.” If there’s one thing all mermaids have in common, it’s their mutability. Mermaids, it seems, surface and retreat as they please, but they are always with us.

The mysterious 2018 disappearance of a TV producer working on the Discovery Channel hit “Gold Rush” is gaining renewed attention on social media. CHINESE SUPERSTAR FAN BINGBING'S STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE AND SUDDEN RETURN SPARK SPECULATION ON HER FUTUREAt the heart of the story is the production company Raw TV, which produces “Gold Rush” for Discovery. Woods’ family points to a text message sent to his father on the morning of his disappearance in which he revealed that he planned to come home to Maryland several weeks earlier than expected. Although he did not explain why, the text prompted speculation that there was more to the 27-year-old producer’s relationship with Raw TV than the family was being told. Although Woods Sr. still suspects foul play, he and the rest of Woods Jr.’s family and friends are simply hoping that they’ll get closure one day.

(CNN) Actor Eugene Levy won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival this year, and the organizers sent him a special video to celebrate. Levy was so touched by the montage -- which featured Steve Martin , Martin Short and Andrea Martin as well as the cast of comedy show "Schitt's Creek" -- that he had tears in his eyes by the end.

Bob Woodward’s New Book Lifts The Lid On Trump’s Personal Letters With Kim Jong Un
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un described his bond with Donald Trump as being something out of a “fantasy film,” famed Watergate journalist Bob Woodward will reportedly reveal in his upcoming book about the U.S. president. Trump reportedly refused to be interviewed for “Fear,” in which Woodward painted a picture of the president’s aides stealthily attempting to dampen his wildest impulses. Trump later dismissed the book as “a piece of fiction” and a “con of the public.”In contrast, Woodward has reportedly interviewed Trump at least twice for the follow-up. In the early months of Trump’s presidency, he exchanged insults with Kim. He wrote me beautiful letters, and they’re great letters.
Wu-Tang Clan's RZA Puts Out An Ice C.R.E.A.M. Jingle Like None Other
The Wu-Tang Clan frontman responsible for the instrumentals behind rap records like “C.R.E.A.M.” and “Ice Cream” has ironically turned his skills to actually producing an ice cream jingle. Ice cream parlors in the 19th century played “Turkey in the Straw,” leading to its still-common usage today. Good Humor, an ice cream company founded in 1920, then contacted RZA to create a new tune, and the result was released Thursday. The artist told HuffPost he thought Good Humor probably chose him because of his previous songs with ice cream-related titles. “I wasn’t thinking about the business part of it; I was more thinking of the cultural relevance of a kid who chased after ice cream trucks.

Why ‘The Fugitive’ is a great summer movie — and a love letter to Chicago
JUSTIN CHANG: “The Fugitive,” a tour de force of suspense and surprise, has given us one of the least suspenseful, least surprising weeks yet in the Ultimate Summer Movie Showdown. And “The Fugitive” exemplifies this because it is Chicago to its core. Starting with its Chicago-born director and star, the movie is filled with Chicago actors (you can tell by their pronunciation of “scahtch”), Chicago newscasters (John Drummond! Chicago had such pride in “The Fugitive” that the Tribune published a map of the movie location — a guide I used for my “Fugitive”-themed birthday party.

Simon & Schuster was the publisher of two books this year that were harshly critical of Trump: “The Room Where It Happened,” by former national security adviser John Bolton, and “Too Much and Never Enough,” by Trump's niece Mary Trump.

There is little as satisfying as a really good crime film, acted to the hilt by a superb cast.

Why have they made Pinocchio look like Freddy Krueger?
Pinocchio PG, Key CitiesMatteo Garrone’s live-action version of Pinocchio is visually sumptuous and there are some enchanting characters (my favourite: Snail). (I screamed so much when Pinocchio turned into a donkey I had to be taken from the cinema, says my mother.) But it’s so episodic, and this Pinocchio is so unendearing, that the film itself never properly comes to life. I was most put in mind of a mini Freddy Krueger, which didn’t exactly help in the bonding department. Also, when Pinocchio first meets Jiminy Cricket he smashes him over the head with a hammer.

They have six kids, although the eldest, 19-year-old Maddox, is an adult. A source said, “Angelina isn’t trying to delay this process. Jolie’s legal team was told that, from 2012 to 2013, Ouderkirk “had heard a few cases involving [Pitt’s] counsel, but that in recent years he had only undertaken one or two cases that settled without his involvement.

'Marvel's Agents of SHIELD' marks the end of an era with its series finale on ABC
(CNN) The following contains spoilers about the "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" series finale. After a few seasons of traveling through space and time, "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" came back down to Earth, sort of, in its two-part series finale, an old-fashioned affair tinged with nostalgia and clearly aimed at those fans that had been with the ABC series since the beginning. Granted, that's a relatively small contingent, with ratings having dwindled considerably since the show premiered in 2013, which feels like a lifetime ago in the evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both on TV and in movies. The finale saw the group overcome the threat from the Chronicoms, as their foes sought to erase SHIELD from history, operating in an alternate timeline. That danger was dispatched, however, relatively early in the final hour, allowing for what felt like an inadvertently timely virtual reunion of original and near-original cast members -- basically the superhero universe version of a Zoom call.

Restaurants closing: 35 of the most popular that won’t reopen after the coronavirus pandemic
Indeed, the coronavirus has already claimed numerous restaurants opened by such culinary celebrities as Wolfgang Puck, José Andrés, David Chang, Daniel Boulud, Charlie Palmer, and the late Paul Prudhomme. Chang also plans to move his popular Ssäm Bar from the East Village to South Street Seaport, where he has another restaurant location. It was originally reported that the shuttered restaurants would include Pok Pok NW, Whiskey Soda Lounge, and two outposts of Pok Pok Wing. The original Pok Pok would reopen, it was said, and a third Pok Pok Wing might also come back to life. Currently, however, the Pok Pok website states that "All Pok Pok restaurant locations are closed for on site service," adding that meal kits and some prepared food is available for pickup at the company's commissary kitchen.
NYPD cites misleading footage as excuse for inaction during teen beatdown
None of the more than dozen cops sitting in police vans and SUVs, as well as five nearby white-shirt supervisors, on the block did anything to intervene in the 4-minute beatdown, a Post photographer on the scene observed. The Post photographer observed no bottles being thrown amid the 7:30 p.m. incident — but that’s because the NYPD’s video was shot a block and a half away and at least an hour earlier. Videos posted online also corroborate the photographer’s account of a hands-off police response to the mob of teens. “The cops don’t even want to get involved because if they slam someone… it’s just too much,” the man filming says. They everywhere, they pushing them from one side of the street to the next side of the street.
Jonathan Majors is your new American hero
ADAD“A son has to know his father because, irregardless of what the relationship is, you will ultimately become them,” Majors says. “Lovecraft’s” Atticus, in particular — gifted, earnest and angry — is all too familiar for the young actor on the cusp of becoming. Young Majors is a voracious reader who's bursting with emotions — rage, heartbreak, "deep, deep joy" — that he doesn't know how to handle. I’m good,” Majors says from the Santa Fe, N.M., home he’s been living in since February, practically bouncing from the rounded Pueblo-inspired walls. It’s fitting, though: As Atticus, Majors is playing a modern-day hero who proves that America’s past is prologue.

Listen: Fantastic Negrito’s new album is here; Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion get steamy
Kiesza, “Crave” (Zebra Spirit Tribe)It’s been six years since the Canadian singer-songwriter has released a full album, and the intervening years were no vacation. Her new album, though, returns Kiesza to her proper place as a pop star who knows how to get people dancing around the world. Single “Red Sangria” is a dancing-while-cooking smash, while “Unknown” is a throwback ballad reminiscent of Toni Braxton or SWV. #ICYMICardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP” (Atlantic)Two of the biggest names in music — hip-hop, pop, any sort of music — released this collaboration on Aug. 7, and it’s hard to figure out how to write about it in what’s considered a family publication.

SF musician, Leonard Cohen biographer Sylvie Simmons back with her own second album
As the author of 2012’s magisterial biography “I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen,” Sylvie Simmons laid bare the myriad of muses that fueled the legendary artist. By 2014, the writer/musician released her debut album, “Sylvie,” earning ecstatic praise from the likes of psychedelic folkie Devendra Banhart. Looking to overcome social anxiety induced by the Cohen book tour, she found an ideal vehicle in the ukulele. “Musician friends were helping me find record stores and bookshops to do events, and I figured if I take a ukulele, we can sing Leonard Cohen songs and make it more of a show. She’s found more camaraderie among Bay Area musicians than writers, and with the release of “Blue on Blue,” she’s artfully traversed the rarely crossed crevasse dividing rock critics from players.

Column: ‘Diana: A New Musical’ hits Netflix before Broadway — and the old walls between screen and theater tumble
For decades, musicals have been rolled out slowly — workshop to out-of-town tryout to Broadway theater and a flashy series of press performances for a few powerful critics, celebrities and influencers who, crucially, will have attended the show before almost anyone else. Even weeks into the run of a hit Broadway musical, only a few thousand people will have actually seen what everybody seems to be talking about. And from the producers’ point of view, that drives demand for scarce tickets. Such is, or used to be, the bedrock of the Broadway economic model.

‘We Are the Guinea Pigs’: Hollywood Restarts Its Blockbuster Machine
So big movie studios, under pressure to get their production assembly lines running again, have focused on overseas shooting. The larger one is made up of the departments that don’t need access to the set during filming, like construction and props. The result, Ms. Howard said, is comparable to a “closed set,” which in pre-pandemic times was typically used for physically intimate scenes. Crew members who don’t interact with the cast as frequently and can wear protective equipment at all times are tested less often. It is in a sense a safety reckoning that still feels like a good idea in a post-Covid-vaccine world.”The post ‘We Are the Guinea Pigs’: Hollywood Restarts Its Blockbuster Machine appeared first on New York Times.
Ted Lasso review – Apple's soccer sitcom plays an unfunny old game
Lasso is a small-time American college football coach played by Jason Sudeikis, a character originated in a viral NBC Sports promo for its coverage of the Premier League. He’s been drafted in to lead an English team despite no knowledge of the game. He’s enthusiastic and unperturbed by his inexperience, unlike the fans and players who greet him, largely with the word “wanker”. He goes for Indian food but it’s so spicy it gives him an upset stomach! The main problem, though, is that the titular character isn’t interesting or funny or substantial enough to warrant a commercial-to-sitcom expansion.
‘The end of George Michael’: how Praying for Time led to one of the most savage feuds in pop history
In the summer of 1990 George Michael was preparing for his big comeback. His debut solo album Faith had just sold 20 million copies and turned the former Wham! Further, the designer stubble, mirrored Aviator shades and leather jacket that Michael wore in the Faith video had turned him into a stadium-filling sex symbol from Tokyo to Tampa Bay. A funereal ballad about the world’s ills with no obvious pop hook or chorus, Praying For Time baffled even those close to the singer. “It’s quite funny, you’ve got I Want Your Sex and then you’ve got Praying For Time.
Joss Stone branded ‘out of touch’ following GMB interview from home in Bahamas: ‘Everyone has a choice to be happy’

Stone, who was promoting a new podcast called A Cuppa Happy, suggested that “unless we’re enslaved or in prison”, we should choose to have a positive outlook on life. But, mentally, we have little choices that we make as we walk along in this life, and that is for every single person. Stone also referred to the furlough scheme as “really great”, adding: “Didn’t Boris [Johnson] do something? “I was like, ‘Oh my God, another little gem that’s happened to our little nation!

Did extremists in Pakistan really uproot “un-Islamic” trees?
The local authorities decided to plant trees on an arid strip of land that is claimed by two different local tribes, the Sipah and the Ghabi Khali. The local authorities have already negotiated with the Khali tribe and they were ok with the government about planting trees here, meanwhile the local authorities did not [do] the same with [the] Sipah tribe. However while some of the members of the Sipah tribe were ok with using this space to plant trees, others weren’t. That afternoon, elders from the Sipah tribe came to replant the trees. After that started circulating, no one paid attention to the other video showing people from the tribe replanting trees.

‘We Are the Guinea Pigs’: Hollywood Restarts Its Blockbuster Machine
Like most actors, Bryce Dallas Howard is used to showing up on film sets knowing what lines she’s supposed to say, when she’s supposed to say them and, often, not much more. Things are very different on “Jurassic World: Dominion,” one of the first major Hollywood studio films to restart production since the coronavirus pandemic led to a global shutdown in March. Before agreeing to return to Pinewood Studios outside London, Ms. Howard and other members of the cast grilled producers and executives from the studio behind the movie, Universal, through a series of Zoom calls and emails about what precautions were being taken. “Until now, actors were not really included in prep,” Ms. Howard said in a phone interview, referring to the moviemaking process as “a need-to-know-business.” “But in order to get any of us on a plane, we had to thoroughly understand the protocols, who was involved and hear second and third opinions. We are the guinea pigs who are going to take the leap.”
Bob Woodward spoke with Trump, got access to Kim letters for forthcoming book
Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book on President Trump will contain nuggets from more than two dozen letters between the president and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. Woodward didn't interview Trump for his first book on the current administration, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” which was published in 2018. “Kim describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a ‘fantasy film,’ as the two leaders engage in an extraordinary diplomatic minuet.”Trump has called Kim’s letters “beautiful.”“They’re great letters,” Trump said at a rally in 2018. “[Woodward] said he's doing something and this time I said, 'maybe I'll sit down,’” Trump said Jan. 10 on "The Ingraham Angle." Woodward and Bernstein's reporting on Watergate helped lead to former President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974.

How Live Music Is Coping, And What The Near Future Will Bring
Shows like this are a rare, if imperfect, bright spot for the independent live music industry, which currently sits, like so many, on the brink of catastrophe. "It's a really surreal and scary time for everyone, but especially for the music industry," says McNamara. Unlike restaurants or shops, a small or medium-sized music venue is more than just a business serving its customers. As the live music industry awaits an economic lifeline and an eventual vaccine, some are using the standstill to creatively rethink the functionality and economics of live music.

This Summer’s Only Blockbuster Is a South Korean Zombie Film
SEOUL—A year ago, moviegoers crammed together in theaters to watch the new “Fast & Furious” film, a computer-animated “Lion King” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood.”Now, the biggest summer blockbuster is a South Korean zombie film that is a survival story in more ways than one. Without competition from major Hollywood films, “Peninsula” is the closest thing to a global hit right now, even if its total haul only amounts to a strong day for one of last year’s biggest blockbusters. Sony Pictures Entertainment’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” grossed $39.3 million its first day in theaters in July 2019—and that is counting only the U.S. and Canada. The absence of megahits this summer is one of the glaring effects of the coronavirus threat that has kept many people at home. That is especially the case in the U.S. and China, the world’s two largest theatrical markets.

Pinocchio, review: forget the Disney sugar – this toy story is sprinkled with grit
Cast: Federico Ielapi, Roberto Benigni, Rocco Papaleo, Massimo Ceccherini, Marine Vacth, Gigi Proietti, Alessio Di Domenicantonio, Maria Pia Timo. It’s hard to imagine a Disney animator storyboarding these ideas without being kicked out of the studio in disgust. While very much a PG treatment, it’s no stronger than that, and it was a sizeable Christmas hit in Italy. As Geppetto, Collodi’s hard-up carpenter, Roberto Benigni gracefully ushers the film through its practically neo-realist opening act. Ielapi’s Pinocchio is an instant tearaway, to an eyebrow-raising degree, and only later learns the error of his ways.
Finding Freedom drags the royal biography – and the Royal family – into the show business gutter
It is a monumental public relations job, and a pretty disastrous one at that. The authors are a pair of American journalists who write about the Royal family for American glossy magazines. For them, the Royal family is a commodity, an institution in which their only interest is how loudly it can make their personal cash registers ring. It is a branch of show business; which is why they were the perfect couple to write a book about the Duchess of Sussex. It is the perfect present for someone you wish to insult.

Bill Cosby files new appeal over sexual assault conviction
It was the first celebrity trial and first guilty verdict for sexual assault since the advent of the #MeToo movement. An earlier trial in June 2017 ended in a mistrial after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict. Although more than 60 women charged that they had been victims of sexual assault by Cosby, he was tried criminally only for Constand's assault, since the statute of limitations had expired in the other cases. He lost an earlier appeal in December when a court ruled that the prosecution's evidence had established Cosby's "unique sexual assault playbook." Ex-movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault earlier this year with the help of "prior bad acts" witnesses.
Bill Cosby's lawyers appeal for a new trial
Bill Cosby's lawyers on Tuesday filed an appeal seeking a new trial, arguing that it was "fundamentally unfair" that the judge at his 2018 sexual assault trial allowed Cosby's deposition from a civil lawsuit to be used against him. Cosby's lawyers also argued that testimony from five accusers about sexual incidents that occurred years earlier had improperly prejudiced the jury against Cosby at the trial, which was widely considered one of the landmarks of the #MeToo era. In the filing, Cosby's lawyers argue that an earlier deposition regarding his use of Quaaludes before sexual encounters and allegations of uncharged sexual misconduct with roughly a half-dozen women was "irrelevant evidence that served no legitimate non-propensity purpose." Story continuesMontgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill permitted one other accuser to testify for the prosecution at Cosby's trial in 2017, at which the jury deadlocked. “The time-honored prohibition on bad character evidence was effectively dismantled at Cosby’s trial,” after the court allowed “decades-old, uncharged allegations of sexual misconduct,” one of Cosby's lawyers, Jennifer Bonjean, wrote in the filing.
Cosby sex assault appeal takes on non-prosecution deal
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby’s lawyers argued in an appeals filing Tuesday that it was “fundamentally unfair” to let prosecutors use Cosby’s damaging deposition from a sex accuser’s lawsuit against him at trial. A spokeswoman for the Montgomery County district attorney's office declined comment but said prosecutors would file a response in the coming month. Cosby, 83, is serving a three- to 10-year prison term after the jury in his 2018 sex assault trial convicted him of three counts of felony sex assault over a 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand. “Fundamental fairness and principles of due process” mean that promise was binding on Montgomery County prosecutors, Cosby’s lawyers argued. In June, Pennsylvania’s highest court agreed to review those two issues, overturning a lower court that had rejected Cosby’s appeal.
