Ryan Tedder (songwriter, record producer, and lead vocalist of pop rock band OneRepublic) sat down with Access Hollywood to discuss in concise detail what it's like working with Adele, Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, and Selena Gomez.
Adele('Rumor Has It')
• He wasn't down to write any ballads, so they did something tempo
• Adele sang the entire song in one take
Taylor Swift('Welcome to New York' & 'I know Places')
• Describes her as "goes beyond talented"
• She sent him voice memos of her on the piano, communicating how she's hearing a song
• "With Taylor, you function more as an editor. She has a million ideas, and you're more like, 'this one, not that one', because she's so good."
• Says, for Taylor, you're more producing than writing songs, "she can write everything by herself."
• Says she's one of the best new up-and-coming artists
• Didn't have crazy expectations, since, "[on girl groups] you don't know what to expect; it's like, you're one fourth or fifth of a girl group, I have no idea how talented you are. And [Fifth Harmony] was manufactured."
• Says Camila is a phenomenal lyricist who wants her music to have a nod to her Cuban origin
• "Sweetheart, amazing, the nicest," also says she is "so calm and confident"
• She knows what she wants, "if she doesn't believe it, or feel it, she's not singing it. She's not keeping it."
• Can't predict what will make her album, but is ecstatic about the tracks they worked on
• She will have a different sound
• Doesn't want to go into much detail, but says they "did a very, very heartfelt, goosebumpy mid-tempo."
Actor Ike Barinholtz, who had a supporting role as Officer Griggs in 'Suicide Squad', revealed what it was like working with method actor Jared Leto.
"I do this scene with Jared Leto and he's supposed to be intimidating me. He comes in, he's the Joker, and he starts squeezing my t*ts. He's like [panting and moaning] 'You're a big guy'.
"This is while we're filming. Then he f**king grabs me and kisses me. On the mouth, full kisses me.
"I thought, OK, I'm just gonna go with it. But then he's like, [panting and moaning again] 'Did someone piss their pants?' I'm like, now I did because you said I did!"
He said Leto was seeking a reaction and "he got it. He was so nice and normal and so cool - I was a fan of his. But then he throws in all this weird sh*t."
Jared Leto previously explained his behavior with "The Joker is somebody who doesn't really respect things like personal space or boundaries."
-While promoting Alien: Covenant and being asked about Neill Blomkamp's 'Alien 5' Ridley Scott declared that his project will never see the light of day and was only a ten page pitch, nothing more nothing less. Scott goes on to say that he had to be a producer and Fox decided to pass on it because Scott already made Prometheus and was working on Covenant at the time.
-Ridley Scott's statement contradicts what Sigourney Weaver said at SDCC a year ago saying that she read the complete script calling it "incredible" and would be very pleasing for fans of the Alien franchise.
-The sequel would have brought back both Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn as Ripley and Hicks respectively while ignoring the events of the past two Alien films.
This whole situation is very shady to me. I see you, Ridley.
ONTD, would you star in a film about how reading Fifty Shades of Grey changed your life?
* April 22, 2018 is their slated opening.
* Their new home on Broadway will be at the newly retrofitted Lyric Theatre.
* Spring 2018 will be a doozy as Disney will be opening it's stage musical adaptation of Frozen, the revival of Rogers and Hammerstein's Carousel and My Fair Lady.

Actor and comedian Lavell Crawford — best known for his role in the cult series Breaking Bad — spoke about homosexuality in an interview with VladTV (👀). Crawford called being gay "fucking weird,""redundant," said he was afraid of the “gay mafia,” believes gay men just need to find the right woman, and advised lesbians to try sex with a man.
Here are some select quotes from the interview:
"I don’t hate you because you gay… I think that’s a choice, I believe that’s a choice."
"Every guy who’s gay, that’s a woman out there for him, he just must need to date a stronger woman, or a bodybuilder or somebody more butch."
"I always see women with a chick, they got on the same outfit I got on. What the fuck is that about?"
"Why you dating somebody who looks like me? You could be dating who’s got all the equipment!"
"We gotta teach their kids how to be men and women before we try gay and lesbian and shit, because that shit is just redundant."
"At 25 I think you can be gay. If you decide you want to be gay at 25, that’s fine. But try pussy for the first years – try pussy out."
"Young ladies, try a dick out. You’re gonna find a good dick out there, try one!"
"If TV gon’ make my kid gay, I’m not gon’ accept that. If you wanna be gay, see the world first."
"I don’t think cartoons is a fucking venue for homosexuality. I just don’t think it. I don’t think I should have to see a gay character, they’re trying to put in your kid’s mind, oh I’m born gay! The jury’s still fucking out on that."
"When you put it in there, kids are impressionable, they be thinking, I want to be like this."
"No matter how much they’re getting accepted, it’s still fucking weird"
"I don’t have nothing against gay people, because strange enough my father’s gay."
"He married a white man… and I’m asking questions, what should I call him, step-dad or step-mom? I said, which one is the man? I wanted to know!"
Watch the full interview below (pls don't):
Soon afterwards, Crawford issued an apology on his Twitter:
Look I apologize but I have right to my feelings and opinions free thought is still here but I'm sorry and ... https://t.co/QG0SycDzHP— Lavell Crawford (@Lavellthacomic) April 19, 2017
To the Gay Community I want to apologize for my choice of words if it offended anyone.I apologize not that I'm afraid but because I am man and a man of God and it's not my job to hurt or condemn but to entertain and inform my way. but if you watch the video (vladtv) without judgment and not so quick to be offended you will see I respect everybody and it's none of my business what you do in your private lives so I apologize not to save face or out fear but it's right thing to do
To show everybody how truly sorry he was, he also went on a retweeting spree, retweeting messages from his supporters. Here are some of these tweets:
@Lavellthacomic You should NOT have apologized. Men shouldn't be rubbing their peepees against other mens peepees. That's some sick shit.— Mark Krzyzanowski (@MAKfromBristol) April 21, 2017
@Lavellthacomic Good for you. They can say whatever they want and if we get upset they say,get over it, youre being intolerant. Well, back ya, hypocrites.— 🕇Yeshua Saves Us🕆 (@Truth_Today777) April 21, 2017
@Lavellthacomic Screw them! Never apologise for a JOKE! Comedians are meant to challenge ideas and push boundaries. The velvet mafia are anti speech.— Brett Sheargold (@IWantComedy) April 21, 2017
ONTD, 1. do you believe in gay mafia? 2. did cartoons turn you gay? 3. are you easily offended?

Former BET Executive Cites ‘Reckless and Inhumane’ Treatment in Wrongful Termination Lawsuit https://t.co/cMzGAKEw4m— Variety (@Variety) May 4, 2017
Zola Mashariki, the former exec VP and head of original programming :
* was fired while on medical leave for breast cancer.
* has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the Viacom cabler.
* was subjected to harassment and discriminatory treatment at the hands of her supervisor.
* accused BET of “egregiously reckless and inhumane” treatment in her dismissal.
* cites gender discrimination in alleging that she earned a lower salary than similarly situated male executives.
* accused BET executives of “questioning the validity of her illness.”
* Viacom denies Mashariki’s allegations and has vowed to contest the suit.
Pretty standard fare but a great sentiment behind the song. I am
still rooting for this girl!
ONTD, are you still in love with EDM pop?
prattprattpratt Instagram does this thing where it mutes all the videos it shows and forces you to turn on the volume in order to hear them. (maybe because most people are watching those videos at work when they should be working and don't want to get caught. I know that's when I do it. 😬) So when I made a video recently with subtitles, and requested that people turn up the volume and not just "read the subtitles" it was so people wouldn't scroll past the video on mute, thus watching and digesting the information in the video. HOWEVER, I realize now doing so was incredibly insensitive to the many folks out there who depend on subtitles. More than 38 million Americans live with some sort of hearing disability. So I want to apologize. I have people in my life who are hearing-impaired, and the last thing in the world I would want to do is offend them or anybody who suffers from hearing loss or any other disability. So truly from the bottom of my heart I apologize. Thanks for pointing this out to me. In the future I'll try to be a little less ignorant about it.
Now... I know some of you are going to say, "Hey! Chris only apologized because his publicist made him!" Well. That is not the case. As always I control my social media. Nobody else. And I am doing this because I'm actually really sorry. Apologies are powerful. I don't dole them out Willy-Nilly. This is one of those moments where I screwed up and here's me begging your pardon. I hope you accept my apology.
And on that note. Why doesn't Instagram have some kind of technology to automatically add subtitles to its videos? Or at least the option. I did a little exploring and it seems lacking in that area. Shouldn't there be an option for closed captioning or something? I've made them lord knows how much money with my videos and pictures. Essentially sharing myself for free. I know they profit. So... GET ON IT INSTAGRAM!!! Put closed captioning on your app. #CCinstaNow

I don’t think they were happy separately, and I know they weren’t happy together.”

It is unknown if this will be shown on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
