    Since touring with One Direction [lol] and co-writing hits like Little Things, it’s hardly surprising Ed Sheeran has struck up a good relationship with the band.

    The 23-year-old crooner was pictured partying up quite the storm with teen heartthrob Niall Horan following 1D’s energetic performance at iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday night.

    Both dressed down in checkered shirts and black T-shirts, the two boys celebrated with famous friends at XS Nightclub inside the Wynn Hotel.

    The close pals appeared to be in high spirits as they happily posed for pictures, they later hopped on stage to dance during DJ Guetta's set.

    Niall, 21, was also snapped rubbing shoulders with Chris Brown over the weekend, who was celebrating his surprise guest performance alongside Usher during the festival.

    During the afterparty, the stars were joined by other celebrity friends Macklemore, Jermaine Dupri and Lil Jon.

    One Direction and Ed Sheeran took the iHeartRadio stage along with Lorde, Paramore, Iggy Azalea, Weezer, 50 Cent, Eric Church, Calvin Harris and Train on Saturday. It was the second part of a two-day festival in the hot desert city.

    Ed wowed crowds with his cover of Macklemore's Same Love, before inviting the artist up on stage.

    He later took to Twitter to post: ‘Much love to @macklemore for hopping on stage with me tonight’

    After performing at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas this weekend, One Direction will no doubt continue making pop history with the release of their fourth album.
    Simply named FOUR, it is due for release on November 17.

    One Direction, who were put together by Simon Cowell on The X Factor in 2010, celebrated the announcement by giving away a brand new track for free.

    This weekend, actress Emma Watson gave a moving speech about gender equality to the UN. She spoke on behalf of the HeForShe campaign about what men can do to help it along, and–unsurprisingly–the speech went viral.

    “The more I have spoken about feminism, the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with ‘man-hating.’ If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism, by definition, is ‘the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.’”

    If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are — we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle.”

    Reasonable enough! And quite mild, actually. However, there were some out there for whom this was all too much. Members of 4chan’s b board lost their very minds over this, and embarked on a campaign against Watson almost immediately.

    So far, this has included a threat to release hacked nude pictures of her in the manner that other celebrity photos have been leaked over the past two months–complete with a sad little countdown website titled Emma You Are Next. Although this is almost definitely a hoax, it is an incredibly sick one.

    Here are some charming comments from the board, to give you an idea of how batshit these people actually are.

    “It is real and going to happen this weekend. That feminist bitch Emma is going to show the world she is as much of a whore as any woman.”

    “in a documentary about the royal family and the media, she was included explained how the paparazzi were hunting her down for upskirt pics and etc, they where waiting patiently for her 18th birthday to hit so they could act like shameless savages , and when it hit, so they did , they laid down on the floor in the streets and such to snap photos of her…
    she is a delicate flower and it is time for her fans to see her in full bloom, unlike your shitty cow tit attention whore there”

    “she makes stupid feminist speeches at UN, and now her nudes will be online, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH”

    Those aren’t even the bad ones. There are others that actually get violent, which I will not be posting. I’m also not linking to the board, as it contains really disturbing images.

    In addition to this, b board members are attempting to get #RIPEmmaWatson trending on Twitter, along with incredibly disturbing fake news website pictures announcing that the actress was found dead in a hotel room.

    The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.

    Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.

    Most of us — save astronauts — will never see the other side of the moon, the so-called “dark side,” as Pink Floyd has dubbed it. It’s an elusive place — one full of mystery and untold beauties.

    Well, today, friends, we’re all astronauts — face astronauts… Ariana astronauts — as we’re now finally privy to a side of Ariana Grande previously unseen: the right side of her face.

    Rejoice! For the “Problem” singer has bestowed upon us that most mysterious and awe-inspiring of gifts: a selfie depicting her other cheek.
    There have been many rumors lately — ones Ariana has all but shut down with grace and aplomb — that the powerhouse singer prefers being photographed only from the left.
    Well, we’re hear to tell you, Ariana, after seeing the fabled “other side” via selfie: If you are, indeed, feeling any trepidation… Let it shine lady! Let the glowing apple orb of your cheek into the sunshine and light! Toss your epic pony over your opposite shoulder and, to use your words, “Break Free”, because you — both sides of you — are equally beautiful.
    We’ll love you either way — it doesn’t matter if you’re left or right.


    We've all been there.. summer is over and you don't want to say goodbye to your golden tan just yet. So what do you do? Reach for your trusty fave fake tanner and get all BRONZED UP?
    Well that's what Ariana Grande does appaz.

    And MAN, does she look hella brown. SO BROWN.
    Wearing some skin tight high-waisted jeans and a tight black crop top, Latte Grande looked like she'd literally just stepped outta the spray tan booth having done a Ross Geller fake tan fail... "I'M AN EIGHT"
    We're also a little bit worried of the tan lines that those super tight clothes are gonna cause if she hasn't washed off said tanner already.
    LOOSE CLOTHING AND NO BRA BABES, hasn't your spray tannist ever told you that?

    Tyler Perry has accomplished many things, and he will be crossing one more life goal off of his list. Fatherhood!

    According to Bossip, the media mogul was celebrating his 45th birthday with friends over the weekend when he revealed the news that he was going to be a daddy. Though he didn’t share who the baby’s mother was, it’s believed to be his on-again, off-again girlfriend of the last five years, model/activist Gelila Bekele.

    POST UPDATE: Gelila is pregnant. The news was confirmed by a friend of hers that posted a photo with the beauty a month ago and captioned it: ‘Love Is In The Air’ before revealing in the comments:

    "She is a good New friend from NYC and she is 7 months pregnantbaby boy"

    Coincidentally, last year, Tyler revealed that the one thing he hasn’t accomplished yet, and wishes to accomplish by age 45, was fatherhood.

    "More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there. Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years."

    Following months of rumors, HBO has announced the two lead actors starring in True Detective season 2.

    The pay cabler announced that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are set to star in season 2 of HBO’s hit drama via press release Tuesday afternoon. “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder,” season 2′s logline cryptically reads.

    The character descriptions are as follows:

    “Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.”

    “Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.”

    HBO says that additional True Detective season 2 casting announcements are forthcoming. The show will begin production “later this year” in California with a eight-episode order.

    True Detective starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, but since the show is an anthology, new leads were necessary.

    The rumor mill has been suggesting that several other well-known Hollywood stars are up for roles as well including Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams.

    Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes of season 2.

    Sam Pepper has now released two more videos since this furore blew up. This morning the first video was posted to YouTube. It showed a woman groping men, and was swiftly removed from the site.

    He followed it with tweets like these:

    He then posted this video, in which he claims the original was a “social experiment”.

    He says the previous videos were “staged and scripted”.

    He also describes a male friend of his who was in an abusive relationship and how he had been groped at meet-and-greets. He goes on to say: “I don’t want to turn off a light on a very real and scary issue women face, I just want to shine a light on an otherwise dark corner - abuse on men.” He says he “chose to use sexual harassment as the focal point of the experiment…that way I could watch you guys go crazy in the comments.”

    He goes on to say: “Men have the highest suicide rate in the world and I think a lot of the time it’s because we’re told to hide our feelings and get on with it, women are allowed an outlet, they have people on both sides trying to protect them.”

    At the time of writing his name is trending on Twitter and it seems the reaction to the alleged stunt is largely negative.

    Apple's new iPhone 6 is the company's biggest, most powerful and best-selling smartphone yet -- and now it's the most unbreakable, the Bruce Willis of mobile tech. Hardware protection company SquareTrade put the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus through its patented Breakability test, reporting some best-ever durability scores for the hot handsets.

    As it does with every major new smartphone, SquareTrade tested the iPhone 6's fortitude by simulating a handful of real-world situations in which people destroy their devices. Both new iPhones survived the company's slide test, in which a smartphone is thrust across a wooden table to test its risk of falling off.

    The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were similarly resilient during SquareTrade's water test, in which they were submerged in water for 10 seconds with music playing. Both phones kept ticking after taking a swim, with audio stopping only temporarily on both.

    The grand finale of SquareTrade's testing came in the form of six consecutive high-speed drop tests from a height of 4 feet. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 suffered little more than a few scratches during this test, making it the best-performing smartphone yet for SquareTrade's drop test. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus' screen survived the fall, but the front and back panels did come apart as a result of the impact.

    Combined with its high marks for size and grip-ability, the iPhone 6's durability test results earned SquareTrade's lowest-ever Breakability score of 4 (higher numbers are more at risk). The 6 Plus was right behind at 5, making both phones more durable to the iPhone 5s (6), Samsung Galaxy S5 (6.5) and HTC One M8 (6.5) according to SquareTrade's tests.

    If you're worried that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus' bigger form factors would lead to you dropping and breaking your phone, maybe these statistics will give you some peace of mind.

    The Hobbit actor Dean O’Gorman to star alongside Bryan Cranston in Trumbo biopic

    Dean O’Gorman is to star as Kirk Douglas in a forthcoming Dalton Trumbo biopic.

    The Hobbit actor, who plays Fili the dwarf in Peter Jackson’s film trilogy, will take on the role alongside Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston as the lead, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    Dalton Trumbo was a successful American screenwriter and one of the Hollywood 10, but he was blacklisted during Hollywood’s golden age for being a communist.

    Douglas starred in the 1960 Spartacus and was also one of the film’s executive producers. He influenced the decision to hire Trumbo to write the screenplay and his praise of the writer is said to have been a key factor in alleviating the power of the Blacklist.

    Trumbo is being directed by Jay Roach, who is best known for Austin Powers and Meet the Parents, with John McNamara writing the script.

    The cast also includes David James Elliott as actor John Wayne, Helen Mirren as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper and Elle Fanning as Trumbo’s daughter Nikola.

    O’Gorman will appear in the final instalment of The Hobbit in December. He has reprised his role as Fili in The Battle of Five Armies. The actor has also played Anders in The Almighty Johnsons.

    Chances are if you were anywhere between three and 10 years old during the summer of 1993, you remember when you first met Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Trini and Billy.

    The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers first aired on Fox Kids and is still somehow on TV, albeit with a totally new cast and storyline. And in case you don’t remember, MMPR followed five athletic and martial-arts-trained teenagers who were chosen to protect the world from aliens by Zordon — the hologram sage — and his robot assistant Alpha 5.

    In the show’s opening segment, Zordon instructs Alpha 5 to teleport “the most dangerous group of ruthless, underhanded, overbearing, self absorbed and over-emotional humans in the area,” to which Alpha 5 replies, “No! Not teenagers!” Of course, in the universe of the show, it makes sense to involve teens in the fight against an alien invasion led by the meanest, most annoyingly voiced villain on TV, Rita Repulsa.

    As the legend of the show goes, Zordon then gave his recruited teenagers morphing abilities, assigning each a dino-monster called a “Zord” into which they could morph. Given these powers, if the teens find themselves in deep trouble, they can morph their Zords together and become… yup – a Megazord.

    Close re-examination of these classic episodes yields a few revelations. Did you ever notice, for instance, that all the morphing footage looked ridiculously familiar? Like, every episode had the same series of Zord-morphing and the team would always have to come together to form Megazord in order to destroy the villain? Why didn’t they just go straight to Megazord instead of wasting time as individual Zords?

    Well, you were onto something. Most of the footage from the first couple seasons of MMPR came from stock footage from the original Japanese show on which Power Rangers was based, Super Sentai. The original show dated from the 1970s and boasted over 30 seasons; the 16th season of Super Sentai is what inspired the first couple seasons of Power Rangers.

    It proved a genius idea. Bring a low-budget (but super successful) Japanese ninja show to the U.S. and just reshoot half the episodes with young American actors. The show was an instant hit and the five young actors who played the Rangers became 1990s pop culture icons.

    David Yost, who played the Blue Ranger, says Super Sentai was much darker than the Power Rangers that we all grew up with.

    “We definitely made it more animated and cartoon-y. There was even talk when we started filming Power Rangers that they wanted us to wear the same outfit for every episode. Not the Ranger outfit, but our civilian clothes,” he recalled, laughing. “They wanted it to be the same for every episode so it would have that cartoon feel. I’m really grateful they didn’t do that because it would’ve been really weird, like these teenagers that don’t change their clothes or shower!”

    There were other pre-production changes. The original Yellow Ranger was a Hispanic-American actress named Audri Dubois who quit after shooting the original pilot when producers said she was asking for too much money. Thuy Trang was brought in to replace her. That triggered some racial accusations, according to Walter Jones who played the Black Ranger.

    “Nobody really talked about me playing the Black Ranger at first,” he said. “But after Trang was hired everyone was like ‘Wait a minute! The Yellow Ranger is Asian and you’re the Black Ranger and you’re a Black guy.’ They were going to replace Audri Dubois with another girl either way, but she just happened to be Asian.”

    The initial casting was a cattle call, remembered Austin St. John who played the Red Ranger. “There was an advertisement in the newspaper. I heard it was thousands of people who auditioned, it was epic.”

    St. John, like most of the other actors, showed up to the casting call without really knowing what the show was about since most of the footage was in Japanese. “I knew I was reading for the ‘Red Ranger’ but I had no idea what that meant,” he said. “They gave me lines and had me do tons of martial arts. Tons.” The auditions prioritized physicality over acting ability.

    “The producers came up with Hip Hop Kido, but I was already trained in martial arts and I learned gymnastics in the streets of Detroit,” says Jones.

    Even the show’s “nerd,” Blue Ranger Billy Cranston, had to have some moves. “You were either a martial artist or a gymnast and I was a gymnast,” said Yost. “I had competed nationally for a while in my youth so that’s how I got the role. There’s one episode where Billy doesn’t know how to dance and they’re all trying to teach him and at the end of the episode I “breakdance”, which was actually a gymnast move.”

    Most of the actors’ martial arts moves were only used when the characters were in normal teenage outfits. “We didn’t do a lot of the stunts you saw in the suits because we could’ve been hurt and couldn’t go to work the next day,” says Jones. “We started shooting our own stunts later on.”

    So basically, whenever you saw the Rangers in full gear, it was most likely a stunt double or old Japanese footage. Well, except for Austin St. John, who insisted on always doing his own stunts.

    “We used stock footage for the first 30, 40 episodes but then we started filming the episodes in the States and I tried to do my own stunts whenever I had the opportunity,” St. John said. “You can tell if the Red Ranger is old footage or me when you’re watching an episode if the hooded Red Ranger is a skinny little guy that doesn’t look like he’d come from America, or if you see a guy with shoulders and some thighs on him, that was probably me.”

    Whenever they did use stunt doubles or old footage, the five actors would go to ADR afterward and dub all the hooded Rangers scenes. Jones says a lot of the time they’d be goofing off in the studio and somewhere deep in the vaults of Power Rangers dubbed files there’s some great audio of the Black Ranger morphing into a Zord while Jones dubs, “Zack here! Shouldn’t have ate that burrito!”

    Oh how we wish we had access to the MMPR vault.

    At the end of the day they were five young actors with great physical ability asked to play superheroes and become every 1990s kid’s favorite Halloween costume. Not a bad gig.

    “I was 18 at the time and I remember doing our first live show at Universal Studios,” St. John remembered. “We were originally going to do five shows in a small theater that seated hundreds, and all of a sudden people were camped out all night just to see us! We broke the Universal attendance records and had to add more shows and move to a bigger theater that seated thousands. Tom Brokaw even did a story on it! It was national news! That’s when it hit me, this is huge. There were figurines. I was like, ‘I’m holding me, in my own hand!’”

    Jones also remembered his Power Ranger days fondly. “Power Rangers were really cool. Not many people get to be a superhero or a role model, and that’s what was so cool about being a Power Ranger,” he said. “Every episode had a message about friendship or bullying or cleaning up the environment.”

    Even after 21 years since its debut, you might still wish you were a Power Ranger. And with the recent announcement of a Power Rangers new movie, it isn’t too late. When are the auditions?

    Quvenzhané Wallis’s career started with a little fib: that she was 6 years old. It was the minimum age to audition for the lead role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and she was just shy. It worked. She landed the part and shot the movie in a soup-swampy Louisiana bayou town called Montegut, a short drive from her family’s home. A lesser child actor might have evaporated into the film’s momentous plot, but Wallis — with her watchful gaze, physical grace and talent for banshee-level shrieking — suffered no such fate, becoming the youngest person ever nominated for an Academy Award for best actress. Now 11 and in the sixth grade, she has built up a tiny but luminous list of credits that includes “12 Years a Slave” and a remake of “Annie” due out this December, in which she plays the title character.

    Like any employable artist, she has a gift for mingling God-given abilities with old-fashioned discipline. “I work with my acting coach to help me get into character and do pronunciation drills and tongue twisters to help me deliver lines,” Wallis says. “I envision the script as a story in my mind, memorize the entire thing and have it play out. It helps me figure out where my character needs to go.” To play Annie, Wallis added singing and dancing lessons to this routine. She always goes to bed early before workdays and downs a proper hot breakfast in the morning: a bowl of oatmeal, maple-and-brown-sugar flavor.

    To maintain equilibrium, she says, it’s important to toggle readily between the zealous concentration of work and the playfulness required to get through arduous days on set: “You have to be serious, but you also have to make your own time to have fun,” Wallis says. “I tell jokes, I laugh with the people on set, I play with the director. Then I try to pay attention and see what I have to do.” To weep on cue, Wallis relies on an old trick: “When I need to cry, I think of very sad things, mostly about animals. My favorite animal is a polar bear. They’re going extinct, and I really don’t want that to happen.” She can also burp on command.

    Perhaps equally important for an emerging celebrity, Wallis is a public-relations savant. She fist-bumped George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” (he visibly blushed) and plays the diplomat in interviews. Asked recently whether her three siblings covet her success, she deflected the question with poise: “They each have their own thing, ma’am.”

    With Christina Aguilera reportedly readying a grittier, Hip-Hop skewed LP, one has to wonder whether the chart-topping chanteuse was scoping out new sounds at Drake and Lil Wayne‘s concert last night.

    The diva – who gave birth to baby Summer Rain four weeks ago, was snapped enjoying the Los Angeles stop of the tour with fiance Matt Rutler, her choreographer Jeri Slaughter, and friends.
    Randomness perhaps, but are we the only ones who’d love to see Xtina team up with Drakey? If indeed, she is leaning towards a more throwback sound, Drizzy is skillfully versatile and could lend his talents to her newest offerings in a compelling way. Just thinking out aloud.
