Celebrated crime-fiction writer John Grisham has attacked America's judicial system for wrongly locking up men he believes 'accidentally' watched child pornography.
The best-selling author and lawyer - who penned novels like The Rainmaker, The Firm and The Pelican Brief - has given an astonishing interview to The Telegraph defending some child sex offenders, saying they have become victims of a legal system that has 'gone crazy'.
He said his 'old buddy from law school' became involved in an operation organized by the FBI in Canada.
'His drinking was out of control, and he went to a website,' Grisham told The Telegraph. It was labelled ''sixteen-year-old wannabee hookers'' or something like that. And it said ''16-year-old girls''. So he went there. Downloaded some stuff - it was 16-year-old girls who looked 30. He shouldn't have done it. It was stupid, but it wasn't 10-year-old boys. He didn't touch anything. And God, a week later there was a knock on the door: ''FBI!'' and it was sting set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to catch people - sex offenders - and he went to prison for three years. There's so many of them now. There's so many ''sex offenders'' - that's what they're called - that they put them in the same prison. Like they're a bunch of perverts, or something. We've gone nuts with this incarceration.'
Grisham was sure to say that he has 'no sympathy for real pedophiles' and believes anyone caught committing such a crime should face harsh penalties.
However he believes many men have been penalized too harshly for doing too little.
Questioned about the fact that viewing child porn fuels child abuse by placing a demand on creating new material, Grisham replied that sentences should still be lower for people who only download the content.
However, a report published in February by Reason magazine claimed that offenders caught viewing child pornography often received harsher sentences than offenders caught sexually abusing children.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that heartthrob Ryan Gosling is eyeing leading roles in multiple major franchises, after a recent break from acting. Gosling is reportedly in talks for superhero roles in both the Marvel and DC cinematic universes, as well as the role of Houdini.
The move comes on the heels of the birth of his first child with actress Eva Mendes, which some industry reporters speculated earlier this year would prompt him to take roles in more big budget movies. Gosling has typically resisted roles in major franchises, but the new report suggests his stance has changed. THR reports that he has met with Marvel for the high profile role of Doctor Strange, which several well known actors have been rumored for including Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey. Meanwhile, Gosling is also reportedly being considered for a villainous role in WB's recently announced Suicide Squad film, as part of its DC universe.

Ashley Parker Angel goes shirtless sexy while grabbing his crotch in a brand new pic posted on Instagram!
“#FeelingNuts for Check One Two raising awareness for testicular cancer. Don’t forget to check your 🏀⚽️,” the 33-year-old entertainer captioned the pic.
FYI: Feeling Nuts Challenge is a hashtag campaign and photo fad “aimed at encouraging men to get checked for testicular cancer on a regular basis.”
The 45-year-old is breaking out of her rom-com comfort zone with an erotically charged thriller.
And J Lo certainly does her best to show her seductive side in a new poster released to promote The Boy Next Door.
Standing in a window, in a tight low-cut lacy vest, the mother-of-two looks every inch the temptress.
In the film she plays Claire, a teacher whose marriage is falling apart. She then meets Noah (Ryan Guzman), the teenage boy who has moved in next door and quickly develops a crush on her.
The trailer gives a hint of the raunchy nature of the movie.
'God you’re beautiful,’ Noah tells Claire as she does her best impression of a soccer mom character – but can’t help but look picture perfect.
Any student/teacher fantasies or stories ontd?
Nene Leakes, YOU JUST GOT SERVED!
Kenya Moore, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, one-time Miss USA and sometime Porsha Williams punching bag says she's doing damn well financially, thankyouverymuch.
Kenya went up to her local Chase Bank branch and had them cut a $20,000 check to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, defying NeNe's comments on The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show. Leakes implied that Moore was all talk and no walk and didn't have the money she was fronting like she had. Well, that check for 20 large can speak volumes.
Not only does Kenya want her to eat her words, she wants NeNe to cough up 20 big ones of her own for a good cause and back up her own charitable talk she spoke up at the reunion.
Media outlet TMZ reached out for a response from Moose but her Metro PCS bill hadn't been paid yet.
Challenge issued. Gauntlet thrown down. Fiscal facial? Served.
mods I chose a different source this time and reworded half the article lol
If you are older than 25 (or don’t have a teenager living in your house), you’d be totally forgiven for having no idea who Smosh and Pointless Alfie are. But they and other young YouTube stars are watched by millions each day, mobbed on the street, have extremely profitable careers, and are wanted by all of the biggest brands. And they’ve achieved all of this often without leaving their bedrooms. It is easy, of course, to dismiss a group of people who have made a vocation of filming themselves surrounded by shopping bags, “hauling” (this is when you show your recent purchases to camera), or goofing around on-screen, but their success is unquestionable. Earlier this year, Variety conducted a study of 1,500 American teens and found that the cultural figures they cited as most influential were YouTube favorites, overtaking both Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Just what is their appeal? Perhaps it’s that teenagers feel these performers are not promoting an unachievable lifestyle in some aspirational manner, but instead are letting them into their lives (and, frankly, their bedrooms) in an honest, approachable, and often funny way. Here, we’ve rounded up a list of eight stars who have risen to fame on YouTube, information with which you’ll be set to impress any thirteen-year-old.
Meet eighteen-year-old Californian haul girl Bethany Mota. She may look like your normal girl next door, but since she began hauling in 2009, she now has two million followers on Twitter, four million followers on Instagram, and seven-and-a-half million subscribers on YouTube. (Yes, that’s more than Gaga or Beyoncé.) Her fans, known as “motavators,” are moving her to the real world; she’s now designing ongoing fashion collections for Aéropostale.
Brit girl Zoe Sugg, as she’s known IRL, has had a casual 270 million views of her videos. They feature her sitting on her bed, offering beauty advice, or doing shopping hauls, often with her YouTube boyfriend Pointless Alfie (scroll down for more on him) or one of her vlogger best friends. The 24-year-old has just launched a beauty line across the U.K. and has signed a book deal with Penguin for her first novel, Girl Online, coming out next month.
Twin brothers Jack and Finn Harries are much like a YouTube version of One Direction. With their Brit accents and blow-dried hair, the pair originally started vlogging about taking a year to travel before university, and now post regular cheeky chats to nearly four million followers.
Checked these vids and damn, these people are either boring or annoying (or both).
It appears that Mariah's singing might not be as elusive as previously thought! In the latest show of her tour Mariah proudly showed off hitting the whistle notes in her hit song Obsessed, before going to one of her back-up singers and collecting money! Seems like someone lost a bet, and Mimi is never too late to get that paycheck!
Show'em how it's done Mimi!
This is Where I Leave You opens this weekend, and it’s got a great ensemble cast: Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard, Jane Fonda. In fact, that cast is so good — and it’s based on great source material (a Jonathan Tropper novel/screenplay) — that you have to wonder how could it possibly go wrong?
But then you remember so many instances in the past that boasted amazing, all-star casts, and nevertheless managed to be huge disappointments. Bateman, Fey, Britton, and Olyphant are not, unfortunately, a guarantee of success, as these ten past ensembles illustrate.
8. The Family Stone
Ensemble: Diane Keaton, Craig T. Nelson, Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson, Claire Danes, Rachel McAdams, and Elizabeth Reaser.
Rotten Tomatoes: 51 percent. This was supposed to be Parenthood set at Christmas. It wasn’t. At all. Also, what happened to Elizabeth Reaser?
Ensemble: Laurence Fishburne, Heather Graham, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Joshua Jackson, Shia LaBeouf, Lindsay Lohan, William H. Macy, Demi Moore, Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Sharon Stone, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Elijah Wood.
Rotten Tomatoes: 46 percent. I would remind you that this was before we were making fun of Shia (although, we were already making fun of Sharon Stone). I also like to refer to this movie as though I were Hank Hill referring to his son.
5. Southland Tales
Ensemble: Dwayne Johnson, Seann William Scott, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Mandy Moore, and Justin Timberlake.
Rotten Tomatoes: 36 percent. Donnie Darko seemed trippy and profound. Southland Tales illustrated that the emperor (in this case, Richard Kelly) had no clothes. The 36 percent who gave this a positive review were all tripping balls.
4. Valentine’s Day
Ensemble: Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, and Julia Roberts (among others).
Rotten Tomatoes: 18 percent. When you have 20 popular cast members and two hours of runtime, each actor is only going to get around 10 minutes of screentime, which is hardly enough time to invest in a character. Not that it would’ve mattered. The storylines themselves were dreadful.
1. Movie 43
Ensemble: Kristen Bell, Halle Berry, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone, and Kate Winslet
Rotten Tomatoes: 4 percent. A series of tasteless vignettes that I would simply like to remind everyone included one in which our beloved Chris Pratt played a character who tried fill overfill his bowels so that he could take a sh*t on his wife during sex, but ended up having an ass explosion all over a car windshield after he was hit by a car. Oh, and Hugh Jackman had testicles hanging from his neck.

Prepare To Be Colonized! Pitbull Unveils The (Slightly Scary) Cover Of New LP ‘Globalization’
Your Christmas shopping is now taken care of thanks to Pitbull. His eighth studio LP Globalization drops November 24 — giving you plenty of time to buy a copy for everyone you know. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! The rap heavyweight also unveiled the cover today (October 15) and it looks like a poster for an old sci-fi flick with his facial features being replaced by a globe.
The tracklist hasn’t been unveiled yet but current hit “Fireball” is being touted as the lead single, so it looks like G.R.L.-assisted club-banger “Wild Wild Love” missed the cut. (Kesha collaboration “Timber” already appeared on Pit’s underrated 2013 EP Meltdown). Catchy Spanish language single “Como Yo Le Doy” is also expected to be on international editions.
With the release date of Interstellar fast approaching, three new TV spots for Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic have arrived online, offering up plenty of new footage for the film. They’ll be running on the TV over the weekend, but if you can’t wait that long, then you can watch them right here…

Click To Stream Her EP on MTV's Site
All five of the tracks on Jacquie Lee's EP, Broken Ones, are now available on MTV's site for streaming. She sort of has an Avril-ish quality to her voice. What does ONTD think about her music/sound?
Jacquie Lee is busting out on her own. And, equipped with powerful vocals and the smarts of an industry vet, she’s finding no problem doing so.
After finishing “The Voice” as a runner-up, the 17-year-old singer signed with Atlantic Records/300 Entertainment, and it wasn’t long before Lee gushed her heart into Broken Ones, her EP that’s streaming right now on MTV before its release on October 21.
“I would describe it as real, raw music,” Jacquie told MTV News when we asked her for the scoop on her EP. “It’s very honest, in my opinion. It’s totally real ‘cause that’s my biggest concern. I wanted people to listen to real music and real lyrics so that they could relate to it. Everything came from the heart.”
Broken Ones begins with the title track, a strong ballad about accepting human flaws. “Tears Fall” follows, and it’s equally as honest, allowing people to know it’s OK to feel pain. After all, that’s how you get through life’s hiccups, like breakups.
“It’s a part of life,” a wizened Jacquie told us matter-of-factly.
There’s a reason for the clarity in her music. After listening to a lot of Adele and Sam Smith (she loves Radiohead too), she realized the music she relates to most is the stuff she can sing along to and actually mean what she says.
“Music has the power to move people and do things, but in order for that to happen, it needs to be honest,” Jacquie said. “Otherwise, you’re going to be fake, and people can detect that.”
The most unexpected part of the EP comes at the end, with her cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” She’s able to take one of pop’s biggest party songs and turn it into a meaningful ballad.
“Oh my god! Every one of my friends … they all wanted to the know the cover, and I was like, ‘Nope, you’re never gonna guess it,’” she laughed. “Nobody ever guessed, and they looked the songs on my EP and they’re like ‘”Girls Just Wanna Have Fun?” How did you even come up with that?’ They’re like ‘How can you do it any differently than it already is? I don’t understand.’”
Once you hear it, you’ll understand.
“I want my fans to get comfort out of my music ‘cause when I listen to music, it usually speaks for me when I have so much to say, but nothing comes out,” she said. “I want my music to be that for them.”
Jacquie, who already started writing an album for next year, also loves old-school music like Aretha Franklin and the Beatles, so it’s only appropriate that she made a Spotify playlist for us. The first track? The Rolling Stones, of course.
Jacquie will perform on NBC’s “Today” show on October 21 (that’s release day, if you already forgot), and if we’re lucky enough, maybe she’ll stop by MTV’s offices too *wink*.
Broken Ones is available for pre-order now on iTunes and Google Play with two instant free downloads of “Broken Ones” and “Tears Fall.”
-Backstage tricks and superstitions they have (Rupert doesn't retie his tie knot), Micah and Nathan go over their lines quickly
-Rupert drops his pants, nice thighs imo
-Different highlights than the video from above, and desc of characters (so kinda spoiler-y if you plan on seeing it)
-Lots of shots at irl people (they showed a few, and Micah's character, Gus is a nice starstruck coat check boy)
In It's Only A Play, it's opening night of Peter Austin's (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director (Rupert Grint), an infamous drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan. It's alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender - and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
i saw this play Sat night and tbh, it's really funny and I do recommend! Micah's character reminds me of 90% of ONTD members imo. Met Rupert & Megan after, who were both super sweet, but Rupert wasn't extremely talkative (he didn't talk at all iirc).

Sorry fellas, but it looks like Demi Lovato is off the market.
A 5-year-old fan proposed to the pop star, 22, on stage at a concert in Illinois over the weekend. She said yes, and after watching the extremely cute video below, wouldn't you?
The parents of Grant, Lovato's young, well-dressed "fiance," took him to the concert to celebrate his birthday since she is his favorite singer, as they explainedon YouTube.
The family held up a sign that read, "Demi I have a ring for you," according to CNN. Intrigued, Lovato invited him onstage.
Grant sealed the deal by getting down on one knee, offering the ring and planting a kiss on the singer's cheek.
Cue the obligatory "awwww!"
The 22-year-old pop star seems pretty excited about the news. She posted a photo on Instagram declaring, "I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
she also put the phot on ig but for some reason i can't embed it but if you want to see it click on the link
In reaction to Taylor's new biographical song, Harry's friend and British singer Olly Murs was asked about her new song in a new interview,
and his response, sweetly of course, was basically that Taylor should write something "new" and stop talking about Harry, watch the 1 min clip below!
What do you think ONTD, should taylor just get over it?
Although The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie was said to be up for the role earlier this year, Deadline is now reporting that Lucy and Marvel's The Avengers's Scarlett Johansson has been offered the leading role in DreamWorks' live-action adaptation of the popular manga Ghost in the Shell. Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders will helm the feature from a script by William Wheeler, based on the series by Masamune Shirow.
Produced by Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul and with the backing of Steven Spielberg, the rights to Shirow's original 1989 complex futuristic thriller, about the members of a covert ops unit that takes on technology-related crime, were picked up several years ago with plans to use the latest 3D technology to film it. In Japan, the huge success of the comics led to a number of anime film adaptations, a TV series and a series of video games with DreamWorks releasing the second anime film in North America.
It remains to be seen whether or not Johansson will take the part, although Robbie is now said to be out of the running altogether, instead targeting a role in director David Ayer's upcoming DC Comics adaptation, Suicide Squad.
Johansson, who also starred this year in Under the Skin and Captain America: The Winter Soldier will soon be reprising her Marvel Cinematic Universe role in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
This season is actually pretty damn good, I am surprised.
Just as fans were finished pitting DC's 'Batman v Superman' movie against Marvel's 'Captain America 3,' after the former switched release dates that had previously been scheduled for the same day, news this week that Robert Downey Jr. will be joining the latter flick has reignited showdown talk between the two films. Indeed, Forbes indicates that the impact of the addition of RDJ's Iron Man will likely be quite significant for the potential box office performance of 'Captain America 3.'"We now have a very real scenario where Captain America 3 might actually out-gross Batman v Superman domestically and worldwide," the publication states. "Marvel has shelled out the money (at least $40m but back-end treats to get Downey Jr. back) for arguably the one 'versus' that could in-fact trump the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusader." Due to the growing popularity of Chris Evans' Captain America coupled with the addition of RDJ's Iron Man as an antagonist, the publication suggests that the third Captain America film has now turned into a major "event" film and has the potential to match the $1.2 billion earned by Iron Man 3 in 2013.
A major reason Forbes highlights as giving Marvel the edge is that RDJ's Iron Man and Evans' Captain America are both well-known to audiences by now, with each playing their roles for more than five years by the time Cap 3 is released. Meanwhile, 'Batman v Superman' will feature a brand new and untested Batman partnered with a Superman that audiences were generally lukewarm about the first time around. "Yes Batman and Superman are, barring variables, arguably bigger characters than Iron Man and Captain America. But in terms of cinematic relevance and pre-affirmed audience interest (both notable variables), it is a much closer contest," the article states. However, Forbes added that it's still too early to tell which movie will gross more when they're released a few months apart in 2016, since a lot of variables could change the outcome. Indeed, it suggests that DC/WB will likely be more concerned about getting fans excited about its universe than grossing more money than Marvel in this specific instance, while noting that the move by Marvel shows the value of its patient approach to world-building.

What movie do you think will be bigger?
I mean, either way, it's going to end up looking a lot like this...
