- Miss Teen USA 2016 was criticized for the lack of diversity in their Top 5.
- The winner they crowned was also controversial.
Karlie Hay was crowned the winner of Miss Teen USA 2016 yesterday. She also loves using the n-word.
Former Miss Teen USA (2010) Kamie Crawford reacted:
I can take the #missteenusa top 5 being an all white, all blonde top 5. What I can't take is - why didn't the winner clean up her page? 🤔🤔🤔— Kamie Crawford (@TheRealKamie) July 31, 2016
If u win any pageant - first things first. Clean up ur page. Cus if ur under 21 u shouldn't b drinking&if ur WHITE the n word ain't yo word!— Kamie Crawford (@TheRealKamie) July 31, 2016

AMC will marathon all episodes today before the finale starting at 11:15am EST (same time for PST)! So if you've been curious about the show, or missed an episode, here's your chance to tune in or set your DVRs =)
Notice a familiar location from last week's episode? If you're a fan of Breaking Bad, then you'll have recognized this place. It's not a coincidence, either. Apart from being on the same network, Sam Catlin and Michael Slovis (both executive producers for Preacher, as well as director of Photography in Slovis's case) are Breaking Bad vets! Click here to watch a video on FB, with Sam explaining why they decided to add this homage for the show.
Below is a fan-made video of both scenes =) Wait, did they use the same dog?
- Kevin Smith, moderator for the panel, starts off talking about so many people had tried and failed to get Preacher adapted to film and television, when finally "two kids from Canada, of all places, who fell in love with this material..." were able to do it.
- DVD for Season 1 coming October 4th 2016.
- Garth Ennis was on board for this as long as it kept the spirit of the comic, but was up for anything to enhance the source material. "It's full of stuff I wish I thought of."
- Ruth shares what she loves the most about Tulip.
- Learn about how Joseph got into acting. Considers himself lucky not to be in jail, and his family and friends are so proud of him.
- Graham McTavish (The Cowboy aka The Saint of Killers) is a fan of the comics and wanted so much to be a part of it.
- Seth shares a funny story about how he wanted so bad to portray Eugene/Arseface when Sam Mendes was set to originally bring Preacher to the screen.
- 2nd part are fan questions, apologies didn't have time to watch it all this morning
Reposting the season finale trailer for tonight's ep :
- Jesse hopes to follow through on his promise to obtain answers from heaven; the entire town waits with bated breath.
Here it is, finale coming tonight @ 9/8c on AMC! Afterwards, a special Talking Preacher will feature Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Eugene/Arseface himself, Ian Colleti. They'll be answering questions you can submit using the #TalkingPreacher hashtag. I believe a user from here is planning on attending, so hope to hear of their experience during it!
What are your hopes for tonight's finale? Here's a few of mine : I'm praying the fan-theory about DeBlanc and Fiore will be confirmed. I absolutely love this change, though I am also worried about DeBlanc's fate from last week... And finally, I'm happy it seems like they're leaving Annville behind, but I would like a nice bit of closure on some of the characters we've come to know. Especially Eugene's fate! Well, see y'all in church!

What did you watch this weekend, ONTD?
With nearly 2 million subscribers, youtube beauty guru Chloe Morello is at the top of her game. However, a new video titled "EID MAKEUP TUTORIAL: Soft Glam Look with Cool Tones!"is causing controversy, with outlets like Cosmo & Refinery29 reporting on it. Keep in mind, Morello is NOT Muslim. She claims like sooooo many people have been asking for like an eid tutorial including her totally cool muslim friend (or something like that).
Here are a few sample comments from the video:
- "Shes using this as a costume! If you are not muslim you will not understand. and i dont understand why you all are talking about this issue."
- "However, wearing a hijab for the purpose of the video is wrong. For you it's easy to wear it like a costume, for the purpose of a tutorial, while actual Muslim women wear it with the risk of being harassed or being attacked due to the fact islamophobia is still so high in society"
- "I would never wear a hijab ...that's like wearing a kippah as a decoration....you can't try on a religion."
She made a statement via the daily mail claiming she is an atheist and it's not an issue: "It makes as much sense as it does to do a Christmas tutorial.... I'm not trying to promote any religion here I'm just trying to promote acceptance." (girl way to miss the point)

This is the story of a very, very long Divorce. Executive Producer Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church star in HBO’s new comedy series premiering October 9 at 10PM.
July 28, 2016
Krazy Actress Productions (founded by Meagan Good and Tamara Bass) - not sure why they chose a silly-arse name, but thats what the are called.They are seeking funding via indigogo for their feature film - 'If Not Now, When?'. The film is written by Tamara Bass. Both Tamara and Megan will star in the film. Both ladies are trying to play on our sense of nostalgia by saying the film is in the sam vein as female bonding movies from the 80s and ‘90s - such as Women of Brewester Place, Set It off and Waiting to Exhale.
The synopsis from their website - If Not Now, When? introduces us to SUZANNE (Meagan Good), PATRICE (Tamara Bass), TYRA (TBA) and DEIDRE (TBA), who have been friends since meeting at 14. Over the course of their lives, fights, disagreements and love have caused friction and distance to manifest between some of them, particularly Suzanne and Patrice, who haven’t spoken in almost 15 years. When Tyra, who is mother to 14 year old JILLIAN (TBA), suffers a crisis, all four women are drawn back together to make it through, and soon discover that they also need each other, and that sisterhood, to make it through what is currently happening in their individual lives.
Tears, laughter and most importantly heart are at the center of this poignant drama. If Not Now, When? captures the essence of those female bonding movies that were prevalent in the 90’s, while telling a story that is stirring and will most certainly tug at your emotions.
The ladies have said they are going down the crowd funding route so they can maintain creative control of the film. Which is fair enough, after all we have all heard of stories of POC filmmakers, show runners etc being told to whiten and lighten characters.
But, I can't help but feel like they have other ways to get this film funded and this is just about Megan's thrifty nature. Between a menagerie of rich friends, Megan and her husband also have a bestselling book, Megan's long running career in Hollywood (which includes starting in predominately black films), and Meagan's husband (Devon Franklin) has a long career behind the scenes before he broke out on his own and has a hit film 'miracles from heaven' under his belt. One would think that with a wealth of resources between them they could get this film funded/made.
But as they say 'don't lend money to friends' and 'the best way to say rich is to not spend your own money'. Maybe that's why Meagan who previously asked guests to contribute to herhoneymoon fundis now doing this. Clearly, I'm not the only person sideye-ing, the fundraiser was launched days ago, and the ladies still haven't broken a thousand.
source, source 2, indiegogo incase I'm just a hater and you all would like to donate.
Mods I've changed the two lines I lifted from the source and I'm using the synopis from the production company website just in case there is an issue with this too - some of us are able to write more than two lines on a subject.
- Starz are developing U.S. version of cult British comedy Peep Show
- The creators and writers of the show, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, are involved as Consulting Producers (like Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant for The Office).
- An earlier remake attempt starring Johnny Galecki didn't get past pilot. It used voice overs but didn't use POV cameras, i.e. the USP of the show.
- Americans with Hulu can watch all 9 seasons along with another Bain and Armstrong show, Fresh Meat.
Up for this, ONTD?
From writing/directing team and executive producers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont ("Can't Hardly Wait"), Entertainment 360 ("Game of Thrones") and MERRY JANE (a premier cannabis media platform) comes MTV's single camera, half-hour comedy about Jordan (Scout Durwood) and Paige (Jessica Rothe), two twenty-something best friends who run an all-female weed delivery service in Los Angeles. Filled with funny, raw and bizarre adventures, the show explores the uncharted territory as Los Angeles comes out of the Green Closet and gets into high and higher times.
Nicole Byer is living the Hollywood dream. Well, Hollywood adjacent – the deep valley to be precise – and it's not so much a dream but a struggle. In "Loosely Exactly Nicole," viewers will watch as Nicole, exuding her special brand of confidence and irreverence, demonstrates the hilarious missteps of what it means to be out on your own for the first time. With the help of her two besties, Veronica and Devin, Nicole will have to navigate the "real world" as she endures humiliating auditions, unpaid electric bills and the romantic battlefield that is Tinder, all while slowly, but surely, finding her voice as a comedian.

July 29th marks the 12th year anniversary of Sonny Moore's first album with From First To last (and one of their bests, imo), appearing on Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count. On July 30, the song below had premiered on Moore's Apple Music station. Additionally, the band is RTing/sharing Skrillex posts on their social media. Is their bad blood gone? Is this really a new song? What is not-forever-emo-OP going to do?
not giving mysself a lotta hope since MCR brought me through the ringer the other week tbh
Blue be like...

The music that really makes me miss the '90s most are the forgotten artists and songs - the ones that really made an impression for a short time and then disappeared from the charts. 18 years ago, artists like Jennifer Paige, Tatyana Ali and Five were topping the charts. These artists who created their 1998 smash hits were never able to replicate the success. Let's take a look at some of the best one hit wonders of 1998!
Disclaimer: These lists are based on U.S. Billboard Hot 100 only. Sorry to those who disagree with certain choices! It is what it is
Divine - Lately
The gospel-inspired song was released as the group's debut single in 1998 and peaked at no. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song was eventually released to international markets, but it failed to make as big of an impact as it did in North America. The group disbanded in 2000 and the song was rerecorded by Samantha Mumba for the European market.
Jennifer Paige - Crush
If you were alive and had a radio in 1998, chances are you heard Jennifer Paige's one and only hit "Crush." Almost immediately after Paige recorded the song, her producer gave a copy to KIIS-FM. "Crush" eventually became the station's most requested song, and it wasn't too long before everyone caught on. The song peaked at no. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Unfortunately, none of her album's singles gained much traction—at least not in the United States, where she never charted again.
Nicole Wray - Make It Hot
When Nicole Wray dropped that Timbaland produced-Missy laced track on us in '98, we were jamming. She was a decent alternative to Aaliyah's at the time, but for some reason, after "Make It Hot" peaked at no. 5 on the Hot 100 and went gold, Wray’s career started to slow down. She’s done some features, but "Make it Hot" was the last time we’ve successfully heard her shine on her own.
K.P. & Envyi - Swing My Way
This rap duo collaborated in 1998 to produce the hit single “Swing My Way”. It peaked at #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and remained in the top 40 for an additional 6 weeks. Their collaboration was short lived and only resulted in this one hit. As individual artists they were part of their own projects prior to producing “Swing my Way” and they’ve since been featured on singles of many other rap artists.
Tatyana Ali - Daydreamin'
Best known as Ashley Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, it wasn’t until 1998 that Tatyana turned her attention to focus on her musical talents and released "Daydreamin'" from her debut album. The single peaked at no. 6 on the Hot 100 and stayed on the US chart for 17 weeks. Tatyana recently released an album in 2014.
Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy
"Sex And Candy" is by far one of the greatest and weirdest songs of the '90s, so it's easy to understand why the song became huge. The band was also curiously unique, with songs like "Comin' Up From Behind" and "Poppies." None of their songs made the impact that "Sex and Candy" did, which peaked at no. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1998.
Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz - Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)
Peter Gunz linked with fellow Bronx MC Lord Tariq to create this New York City anthem. The song's main groove was lifted from Steely Dan's "Black Cow," and with its popular refrain ("Uptown baby, Uptown baby!"), it became the group's only hit. The song peaked at no. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Peter is currently being a fuckboy on VH1's Love & Hip-Hop.
Five - When The Lights Go Out
Released in 1998, "When the Lights Go Out" was the second single released from the British boy band Five’s debut album, 5ive. The song peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. While Five continued to have commercial success in Europe, the song remains their only U.S. hit.
Semisonic - Closing Time
"Closing Time" remains a pop-cultural touchstone, but it also remains the groups only top 40 hit. Some may say this band is not a one hit wonder, but the group peaked at no. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and never saw the same success again. Hole-in-the-wall bars are still kicking people out w/ this song to this day.
Pras - Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are)
Pras from the Fugees, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and Mya aren't even close to being one-hit wonders, but they all came together in 1998 to create a one-off smash HIT for the film, Bulworth, starring Warren Beatty as a fading politician who becomes inspired by hip-hop culture. Thanks to the coming together of this elite group, this became Pras' one and only solo hit. But that's not to take away all of the success he has had with the Fugees!
- Uncle Sam, "I Don't Ever Wanna See You Again"
- TQ, "Westside"
- Jimmy Ray, "Are You Jimmy Ray?"
- Billie Myers, "Kiss The Rain"
- Nu Flavor, "Heaven
- Queen Pen, "All My Love"
- Alana Davis, "32 Flavors"

Feel free to use this post to
Bummed you didn't get that the whole third act is my apology to critics, sir. It's kind of obscure, so I'll explain. https://t.co/Lysx5RjlsE— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) July 31, 2016
In response to a critic Kevin Smith made a tweet on how the film is an apology of sorts to critics he's argued with in the past. "I am the crazed old artist who let his art get out on[of?] control and blamed art critics."
A few days ago, youtuber Kat Blaque uploaded a very articulate and nuanced video concerning Jeffree Star and his history of racism. In the video, Kat provided a very well-organized breakdown of the situation and even called in Jeffree quite politely. At the end of video, she even gave him the benefit of the doubt and said that Jeffree could very well have changed, especially since it's been more than 10 years since those videos.
Below you can watch the reuploaded video, which Kat had to re-edit before she could do so. The original video started with the racist clip that a Twitter user uploaded where Jeffree pursued a black woman and purposefully called her the n word as well as call women the c slur.
Not long after the video was uploaded, it was removed via a DMCA claim, which Kat exposed on Twitter as well as Facebook. Read after the jump.
It should be noted that the above video was taken after Kat got home and calmed down some. When she had first found out, she was enraged that the video had been taken down. And rightfully so, as you will read later on in the post when Jeffree tweets to Kat. The video is little over an hour, but the gist is that she was upset because she received a copyright strike. And if you don't know, if you receive three copyright strikes then your Youtube account is suspended and they delete all of your videos. She became enraged because Youtube is her main source of work and income, which has afforded her to do many speaking engagements at universities, become a HuffPost writer, and more. You can skip through the video below.
Not long after that, Jeffree took to Twitter to respond to Kat personally. Read below.
@kat_blaque Kat, I never filed a claim against you. Sharolaid owns the footage and I can't control that person. I would never silence you.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) July 30, 2016
@kat_blaque I understand your frustrations but I didn't know who you were until a few hours ago— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) July 30, 2016
@kat_blaque he's a song writer and has a lawyer who works there. stop reaching. I don't care who makes videos about me— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) July 30, 2016
@kat_blaque you could of emailed me and asked instead of assuming. your followers telling me to "die" isn't nice :/— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) July 30, 2016
You're honestly not the victim in this equation. I would never encourage my followers to tell you to kill yourself. https://t.co/VPjqf38dG0— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
Especially as someone who has attempted suicide several times in their lives- that would never be me. https://t.co/VPjqf38dG0— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
@kat_blaque if bullying me and insulting my music makes you feel better, I can't help you there.. God Bless and I wish you well ❤️— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) July 30, 2016
I genuinely like the song Beauty Killer, I just didn't know Sharolaid wrote it. That's a talent I didn't know he had https://t.co/va68hAtnYN— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
I also appreciate the well wishes and all, but my video was FAR from bullying. It was very tactful and I know that. https://t.co/va68hAtnYN— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
For you to even vaguely frame yourself as a victim here is so sad to me. So sad. https://t.co/va68hAtnYN— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
The same video that got claimed was uploaded to my vlog channel. No strikes on it. Wonder why. https://t.co/va68hAtnYN— ✨Kat Blaque✨ (@kat_blaque) July 30, 2016
Edit: Kat released a video last night and seems to be doing much better!

What do you think, ONTD? Do you believe Jeffree and that Sharolaid works at UMG which Jeffree used to work under?
