Susan Sarandon on Woody Allen: ‘He Sexually Assaulted a Child’ https://t.co/trNFwPRrij— Variety (@Variety) May 15, 2016
At the Cannes Film Festival during Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk with Geena Davis: “I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right. I have nothing good to say about him. I don’t want to go there.”
-CBS ordered and shot a pilot for a modern-day Nancy Drew series, and recently it was reported that it would not be picked up to series by the network
-However, today it came out that the reason it was not picked up is because it was "too female" for CBS
-The pilot reportedly tested very well, which is even more confusing why CBS would pass on it because it was "too female"
New previews of the 'Let Me Love You' music video! pic.twitter.com/0eATZDTIVY— Ariana Grande News (@ArianatorAware) May 15, 2016
A few shots from the video for Let Me Love You have leaked ahead of its release at midnight tonight. (Ari also confirmed that all the promo singles, plus Into You will have visuals) She also dropped a cute song "Sometimes" on Beats1 today! So gracious! And no, the album hasn't leaked yet.
Source 1 | 2
a vid for Let Me Love You when Into You is the second single? yeah, that sounds like something Ari would do. and sometimes is so light and breezy, i love it. very mid-2000s urban country crossover
Follow-up to this post.
Despite the ridiculous and unfounded rumors that she's detransitioning, Caitlyn Jenner subtly assured everyone that she is a woman with a selfie captioned with, "The joys of being a woman! sooo worth it. #glaadawards #saturdaymorningfun"
Take that, transphobes!

Note: I'm not a fan of Caitlyn Jenner (she's still extremely privileged and ignorant), but no one would go to the lengths of transitioning just to cover something else up.
Joey Bautista got caught looking...with the hardest strike thrown all season 😳https://t.co/vl2UB1XUfu— Fanly (@fanly) May 15, 2016
Long story short:
-Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays was hit by a 98mph fastball by Rangers pitcher Matt Bush.
-Instead of letting his team get retaliation later in the inning, he took it upon himself and slid into second base in an attempt to take out Odor to break up a double play.
-Odor wasn't having it, decked Bautista and the benches cleared. What ensued was a good ol' bench clearing brawl.
Judging from postgame interviews, Jose seems to be okay and said Odor caught him off guard but he "got him good". You ate it like a champ, Joey.
Favorite sports fights? Aside from the legendary Malice at the Palace, I'm a fan of Canada vs. Mexico in the WBC.
Jen Lidley - Dawsons Creek
Matthew Crawley - Downton Abbey
It was a very basic list, so bring some justice to it and tell us who you think didn't deserve to die.
wtf all around
Richard lets his ego get in the way at an interview; Dinesh, Gilfoyle and Jared misplace hardware; Erlich pitches his plans to Big Head.

This is basically fanfiction now, lmao.
Who knew that Jeffree Star would make a comeback as a super popular cosmetic retailer and beauty guru after his Myspace days? I'm sure as hell he hasn't changed though, he's friends with MannyMUA, Jaclyn Hill, and Patrick Starr (AKA the guru drama queens) lol. That being said, I really need his Unicorn Blood liquid lipstick in my life.
Late night beauty post?
#DrillVille was treated to a spectacular rendition of the national anthem Friday night. Tulsa's own, Hanson, was in the house to start off a gorgeous night of baseball.
flop harmony who
-Myspace/Warped Tour era makeup artist turned professional beauty manufacturer Jeffree Star went out with another youtuber called MakeUpShayla when she allegedly told another person to get lip injections because her face was disproportionate
-Jeffree was upset then went on several rants on snapchat and twitter (helpfully compiled in that youtube video below)
#deceased bitch.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
The youtuber in question responded, denying that she had said something like that
Why would someone I met for 5 min be so hot and bothered over me.— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016
@MakeupShayla telling another female their face is disproportioned and being so disrespectful, is a disgrace to every female on this planet— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
@MakeupShayla you said that Word for Word in front of everyone, so either stop drinking or remember what comes out of your mouth…— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
@JeffreeStar you are making things up obviously for attention. You are being messy and disrespectful toward someone you don't even know— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016
@JeffreeStar honestly your a BULLY— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016
-In a now deleted tweet he called her a 'broke rat'
@MakeupShayla PS please learn correct grammar if you're even going to try to respond to someone with a college education— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
-He also called her a man
@JeffreeStar real classy— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016
-Jeffree also retweeted this before continuing with his rant
Don't run your mouth at a guy and then when they retaliate, you pull the woman card..Respect goes both ways.Smh @JeffreeStar dnt mind her😴— shiloh tumanuvao (@ShilohisFluffy) May 16, 2016
-In another deleted tweet he also threatened to beat up MakeUpShayla
You should never be OK with or support a man that says he will beat up a woman.— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016
I don't care who you are, when I hear you bullying a stranger and insulting their looks, I'm going to speak up… that's that.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
Everyone should be uplifting each other up and supporting the artistry, but these catty girls have no class and no manners…— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
I promised myself not to get to that level, but sometimes someone just needs to hear the truth… No matter how hard it hurts— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
If you bully strangers and value "vanity" more than intelligence and friendship, go fuck yourself 💗— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
-He also retweeted this
Sorry that last one was too easy, my standup comedy tour starts next fall!— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016
-Instead of defending her friend, another instagram/youtube mua named Amreezy had this to say
Ya'll waiting on a response for what? This ain't a show. @JeffreeStar was clearly joking. Don't be messy in my mentions.— Amra Olević (@Amrezyyy) May 16, 2016
-He also revealed who the person he was defending was
Stop instigating beef between @amrezy and I. People just like to start beef— Shayla (@MakeupShayla) May 16, 2016

-Jeffree also blocked a user who told him she would no longer be buying his products due to his threats of violence toward MakeUpShayla
-People are also apparently rediscovering that Jeffree isn't shit and dragging up his racist rants from the old days.
Before I go.. One last thing: Don't ever call me a liar. Own up to what you said. 💛 Proof. Case closed. pic.twitter.com/coFW4IQ5v5— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) May 16, 2016

Where was all this when MannyMUA called that girl ugly tho? Icu Jeffree.
Kristen Stewart is at Cannes for her films Cafe Society and Personal Shopper, and she's given a few memorable moments and soundbites from the French festival:
Kristen and her (apparently on-again?) girlfriend Alicia Cargile had an impromptu dance party on the red carpet of American Honey, Shia's latest film.
Stewart and Cargile were spotted holding hands at the Cannes Film Festival.
It's a requirement for all women to wear high heels at Cannes, but Kristen Stewart disagrees with that rule, calling it archaic. She had paired her ensemble of Chanel blouse and skirt with a pair of flats, but was told that she couldn't enter the red carpet until she changed into high heels.
“It has become really obvious that if [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, young lady, you’re not wearing heels. You cannot come in.’ Then [I’m going to say], ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’ It can work both ways. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version—flats or heels.”
(This is the outfit in question.)
Have you ever had to follow sexist rules?

BREAKING: We've suspended betting on Tom Hiddleston being the next James Bond after a flurry of bets! pic.twitter.com/IGMjBCgwzX— Coral (@Coral) 15 May 2016
- Coral's spokeswoman issued this statement: "There is no smoke without fire, and following the big gamble on Tom Hiddleston in the last 24 hours, we've had no choice but to pull the plug on the market. Earlier in the year there was a gamble on Idris Elba and Damian Lewis, but nothing has come close to the recent gamble on Hiddleston".
- He was spotted meeting with Bond director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli (great name btw) in London last week, allegedly.
- Odds before betting was suspended: Tom Hiddleston from 2-1 to 1-2 overnight; Aidan Turner 3-1; Tom Hardy 4-1; Idris Elba 9-1; Damian Lewis 14-1; Michael Fassbender 14-1; Henry Cavill 20-1; none of the above 50-1.

ONTD, is Tom Hiddleston going to be your new James Bond?
Very few female members from pop groups were able to achieve longterm success with their solo projects. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Cheryl Cole are some of the few who have been able to maintain relevance and release music regularly. This post looks at the failed and forgotten solo careers of the female members of famous pop groups.
The Swedish group A*Teens originally debuted as an ABBA tribute band called ABBA Teens in 1998, but they changed their named to avoid confusion. The group had moderate success around the world, but disbanded after the members became adults. Marie Serneholt and Sara Lumholdt, the two female members in the group, both worked on their own solo projects following the group's split.
Marie Serneholt released her debut album "Enjoy the Ride" in 2006, with the lead single "That's The Way That My Heart Goes." Although the song peaked at #2 in Sweden, it wasn't as successful throughout the rest of Europe, and plans to release the song in North America were scrapped.
In 2007, Sara Lumholdt released the single "Glamour Bitch" through her MySpace under the name Sara Love. The song featured rapper Milano Money and wasn't very popular with her fans, as it featured provocative lyrics. In 2008, Sara flew out to Los Angeles to record her debut album, but plans for its release were scrapped. The album she recorded remains unreleased to this day.
Steps was a British pop act that debuted in the late 90s. The group achieved a string of hits in the UK before eventually disbanding in 2001. Steps reformed in 2012, releasing their fourth studio album and going on tour in support of it.
Lisa Scott-Lee is the only member of Steps to officially release music as a solo artist. Her debut album "Unleashed" was supposed to be released in 2003, but Lisa was dropped from her label before it could be released. Her album was eventually released in South Africa in 2007 with the name "Never Or Now."
Mis-Teeq was a British girl group that had a string of hits in the UK. Their biggest hit, "Scandalous," peaked at #2 in the UK and was released in the US as the theme of the 2004 film Catwoman. Mis-Teeq released only two studio albums before disbanding in 2005.
After leaving Mis-Teeq, Alesha Dixon had a successful career comeback in 2007 after she won Strictly Come Dancing. In 2008, she released "The Boy Does Nothing," which went on to become an international hit for her. Although Alesha has released four studio albums, only her second album has managed to go platinum in the UK.
S Club 7
S Club 7 was a popular late 90s/early 00s British pop group that quickly rose to fame thanks to their television series. The band is well-known for their marijuana controversy, when Paul, Jon, and Bradley were all caught in possession of weed in 2001.
Rachel Stevens is the prettiest and most popular member of the group. She released two studio albums and achieved five Top 10 hits as a solo artist. Although her music is considered pop perfection by many, she hasn't released any singles or albums in over a decade.
Jo O'Meara is most famous for being a giant racist during the fifth season of Celebrity Big Brother. Nobody cared for her music when she released her solo album, and this is made evident by the fact that Cascada's version of "What Hurts The Most" outpeaked O'Meara's version in the UK.
Tina Barrett released her debut solo single "Fire" in 2012. She self-released the music video on her YouTube channel and disabled comments and likes on the video because it was so poorly received.
Girls Aloud is the UK's best girl group ever (even better than the Spice Girls). They had twenty consecutive Top 10 hits. Sadly, they never achieved much popularity outside of the UK.
Nadine Coyle is the voice of the group, as she had lead vocals on most of their songs. Sadly, her solo career ended up being a big joke, as she was managed by some dude who was a total hack. In 2010, she struck a deal with Tesco to sell her album in their stores. As expected, her album flopped.
Nicola Roberts is known as the ugly member of Girls Aloud. She released a really great pop record in 2011, but it flopped because she has an awful voice and just like Demi Lovato, she is very dislikable.
Kimberley Walsh is the absolute most forgettable member of Girls Aloud. She released a flop album of showtunes covers in 2013.
In 2015, Sarah Harding released her first official single "Threads." The song sucks. Her best solo track is the song "Too Bad," which was featured on the St. Trinian's 2 soundtrack in 2009.
The Sugababes were an extremely popular British girl group during the Noughties. Just like Destiny's Child, they went through many lineup changes over the years. Their best and most popular single is "Push The Button."
Siobhán Donaghy was a member of the original Sugababes lineup. She released two flop albums that were well-received by critics.
In 2007, Mutya Buena released her only solo album, "Real Girl." The album reached the Top 10 in the UK and spawned two Top 10 hits.
The Spice Girls are the best-selling female pop group of all time, as well as one of the biggest British acts ever. The group split up in 2000, after releasing an album without Geri Halliwell. Halliwell's departure in 1998 was one of the biggest celeb scandals of the year.
Victoria Beckham released her first solo album in 2001, which spawned two Top 10 hits. Her second studio album's release was scrapped when her label went bankrupt. Her best song "Let Your Head Go" was the lead single from her cancelled album.
Despite having three Top 10 singles, one of which went #1, Mel B's first solo album flopped. She was ultimately dropped from her label, and released another flop album a few years later.
Although Emma Bunton released three albums and had seven Top 10 hits, her solo music career has pretty much been forgotten. Her best single is "Maybe."
All Saints is the second best British girl group. They released a lot of great songs and had a cool and edgy vibe. They recently released their fourth studio album, which peaked at #3 in the UK.
Shaznay Lewis has a very distinctive voice and she's a very talented songwriter. She always releases great music. Her only solo album peaked at #22 in the UK, and featured the Top 10 single "Never Felt Like This Before."
Melanie Blatt released her first solo single "Do Me Wrong" in 2003. She was in the process of recording her solo album when she was dropped by her label. In 2005, she released her second solo single and planned to release a solo album independently, but it was shelved.
The Pussycat Dolls were a highly-sexualized girl group that achieved success during the mid-to-late Noughties. The only member who achieved any sort of solo success was Nicole Scherzinger, who had a string of Top 10 hits in the UK.
Kimberly Wyatt achieved some success with her feature on Aggro Santos' single "Candy" in 2010. In 2013, she released "Derriere," which was a giant flop.
In 2012, Carmit Bachar released "Keep On Smiling," which flopped.
In 2014, Ashley Roberts released her debut album "Butterfly Effect." In 2016, Meghan Trainor rewrote and re-recorded Ashley Robert's single "Woman Up" for her album "Thank You."
Jessica Sutta released her debut solo single "Show Me" in 2011, but was dropped by Hollywood Records after the song failed to become a hit. She recently released her latest single "Forever" a few months ago.
Melody Thornton has released a string of solo songs, none of which have charted. She is still at work on her debut solo album.
Feminism, lesbian celebrity fanfic, literary humor, art history, and all things silly and smart will be tragically poorer come summertime-- satire blog The Toast has announced that it will close its doors as of July 1, 2016.
The Toast gently skewered everything from the revered pastures of academia to femslash fiction. Founded three years ago, it quickly became popular with niche corners of the internet and spawned several viral posts like Ayn Ran'd Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,Owl Faces, In Order, and Books That Literally All White Men Own.
The site's founders Nicole Cliffe and Mallory Ortberg cited decreasing ad revenue as a major motivation to cease publication, but also said that they are moving their careers in new directions. (Cliffe is writing for The Guardian and raising two small children; Ortberg now writes Slate's Dear Prudence column and is working on a book of horror stories.)
