Remember that philosophy book Kanye West said he was writing? You'll be able to read it for free because it's going to be written on Twitter.
The book is called Break the Simulation
"Oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time. No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive,"

Charlize Theron Developed Depression While Gaining 50 Lbs. for Tully: 'It Was a Huge Surprise' https://t.co/wtLoeEVN6F— People (@people) April 18, 2018
Charlize admits to developing depression once she gained upwards of 50 pounds for her new film Tully.
Charlize apparently didn't eat healthy to gain the weight and felt the impact on her mental state.
“I just I wanted to feel what this woman felt, and I think that was a way for me to get closer to her and get into that mindset,” she told Entertainment Tonight of gaining the weight. “You know, it was a huge surprise to me. I got hit in the face pretty hard with depression. Yeah, for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. I was not that fun to be around on this film.”
“It was fun to go and have breakfast at In-N-Out and have two milkshakes,” she said. “And then after three weeks, it’s not fun anymore. Like, all of a sudden you’re just done eating that amount and then it becomes a job.”
“I would literally wake up at two in the morning and I’d have a cup of cold macaroni and cheese just next to me,” she said. “I would wake up and I would just eat it…I would just, like, shove it in my throat. It’s hard to maintain that weight.”
Nicole Kidman's company Blossom Films is partnering with producer Lynda Obst to adapt Meg Wolitzer's latest novel, "The Female Persuasion." She will also star in the role of Faith Frank, a prominent figure of the women's movement, akin to Gloria Steinem, who inspires a college freshman.
Cary Elwes and Jake Busey have been cast for the third season of Stranger Things. Elwes is playing the mayor of Hawkins and is described as "handsome, slick, and sleazy" whereas Busey is playing a journalist "with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor".
Paula Patton‘s new beau is still married to his wife. He's not even legally separated from his wife.
He has been with his wife for nearly 20 years and they have two kids. He is a real estate agent in Malibu.
Quittman and Patton met through their kids’ sports activities.
The now-estranged wife will now start to pursue legal action toward divorce.
“Patton paints herself as the jilted woman who was left for another woman, but she’s doing the same fucking shit, she’s a hypocrite,”
Isabella Rossellini explains why she won't name her rapist: 'There is no value' https://t.co/qlxoLQcC1t— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) April 18, 2018
Isabella Rossellini wants to leave the past in the past.
“I do understand the value for some people to talk about their experiences, but for me, there is no value. The person that raped me — I was 15 or 16, he was a year older than I, why would I dig out this story 48 years later? What if people start to say, ‘No, you have to say the person’s name?’ I don’t know what happened to him. He might be married. He might have children. I am a superstar in Italy. If I said who did this, I would destroy him.”
“This man hurt me in the context of a culture that we are all trying to change. I don’t think that pinpointing one person and destroying their life because they made a sin in the context of that culture — I don’t have the heart for it.”
“I’m happy that we are talking about these issues because all women have been harassed, but it was never discussed before. We just lived with it. Even if you didn’t have anything violent happen to you, there was always a way for a man to belittle you. This is changing, I think. Men have to see they can’t behave in these ways.”

Four respected presenters and a camera crew attempt to discover the truth behind 'The most haunted house in Britain', expecting a light-hearted scare or two and probably the uncovering of a hoax.

PAPER Magazine's "Transformation" issue has generated considerable buzz as the launchpad of a newly understated Christina Aguilera, but its most important feature may be one you haven't read. In "Perpetual Transition," Brian Belovitch (previously known as 1980s New York transgender nightlife fixture Natalia "Tish" Gervais) opens up to genderqueer writer-activist Jacob Tobia about their journey "from man to woman and back again," a complicated experience that will be further chronicled in their upcoming memoir 'Trans Figured: My Journey from Boy to Girl to Woman to Man.'
An effeminate child, Brian Belovitch fled from their stifling Rhode Island home to New York City at 17 years old. Upon arriving, they found a gay community in which "you had to pick a lane," telling Tobia, "Either you were a butch queen and you looked like Cheyenne Jackson or Matt Bomer or you were in the other lane: You were a drag queen or [got a] sex change. It was very lonely and confusing to be in the middle of all of that. You were really herded into those roles."
Belovitch saw no point in attempting to butch themselves up, so after a period of gender-bending they resigned themselves to the overwhelming sense that transitioning and living as a woman was their best, safest bet. They claimed that they never felt that they were a woman, but that their femininity dictated that they were not a man: "Transitioning became a way to survive in the world. When I made that decision to transition, I thought 'I'm gonna go undercover. I'm gonna go stealth. No one's gonna ever know so they can't hurt me. So they can't make fun of me. It'll be harder for them to pick me off or exclude me.'"
Brian became Natalia "Tish" Gervais and managed to pass as a woman by day while being an openly trans fixture of the downtown scene and icon in their own right by night - "'The Bombshell of Rock n' Roll,' or 'The Girl with Something Extra.'"A home movie shot in Manhattan's East Village at the height of Tish's fame sees them roaming the streets with seemingly uncomplicated ease, grabbing a bite to eat at a bodega and pointing themselves out in the pages of Vanity Fair and Details.
Unfortunately, it was not built to last. After briefly leaving New York for what would prove to be a failed marriage to a soldier, Tish returned to find a city transformed: "There was always this underlying misogynistic, sexist view of me back then, which was devastating. I call it the 'Marilyn Monroe Syndrome,'" Belovitch told Tobia. Trans entertainers were not taken seriously outside of the club, and finding office jobs impossible to retain Tish turned to sex work, eventually testing HIV-positive.
Belovitch says that witnessing the treatment of gay men during the height of the AIDS crisis was the catalyst for their decision to "retransition," but that ultimately they never felt tethered to one gender or the other. "I never felt like, 'Oh I'm in the wrong body,' or felt like a girl, even when I was presenting as a trans woman. My idea of what a woman was or how a woman or a girl was supposed to feel was taught to me, something that I learned by observation or by other people's opinions or ideas about how they thought I should be."
Tish went back to being Brian, ceasing hormone treatment and having their breasts removed - a decision that was met with no small amount of flack from the NYC trans community. "I got a lot of flack in the beginning from my friends in the community. It was very painful. I felt kicked out of the tribe. Some of my good friends reacted badly, and I can understand why, because I'm sure they felt it was threatening." Belovitch also feared what would greet them in the mirror upon retransitioning, having grown accustomed to the glamorous, bombshell figure of Tish.
Belovitch's story is reflective of a reality of a small portion of the trans community that is viewed by many activists as a "complication to the narrative" they have worked to build. As Tobia explains:
"As trans people, we've tried to make it easy for cis folks. In order to argue that we should have access to trans-affirming medical care, in order to have our breasts removed or augmented, in order to get the hormones that we need, we've adopted an oversimplified narrative about what transition means: Transition is always medical. Transition is a one-time, irreversible, life-saving expense. Transition is a permanent affirmation of someone's gender identity.
"But like all things human, transitioning is messier and more nuanced than we often let on. Some trans people transition only 'partially,' taking hormones but not having any surgery. Some trans people transition 'all the way,' receiving hormone therapy and pursuing multiple surgeries. Other trans people — people like myself — transition only socially: dressing differently, acting differently, embracing a different gender presentation in the world without necessarily changing our bodies. And some trans people, people like Brian Belovitch, medically transition, live for years in that body and transition once again."
In truth, very little data exists to shed substantial light on retransition rates for transmen and -women. One Swedish study that examined transgender individuals from 1960-2010 found that only 2.2% of subjects sought to reverse their transitional procedures. Nevertheless, these individuals exist, and their experiences of transitioning (and "retransitioning") are no less valid than those of the men and women for whom it is a "one-time" deal.
Today, Belovitch lives as a gay man, but tells Tobia that it is because of their age and "general tiredness" that they are not assertive about not feeling comfortable with cis male pronouns: "I'm too old to switch, so I just sort of go with what's simple: I'm gay, I'm a cis male for simplicity. But I feel strongly that gender is so nonbinary. It's so much more fluid, so much more than just that."
- As we celebrated a legend's birthday yesterday, people are feeling some type of way about noted vegetarian Victoria Beckham's Instagram post of her adorable daughter Harper cutting a #vegan friendly watermelon cake - consisting of literally just a block of watermelon with berries on it, topped with a candle.
-Fans had some thoughts in her comment section:
"Most miserable cake I’ve ever seen eat some cake please.”
“Can you imagine the let-down you'd feel?”
- I don't see the fuss if she wants to save calories by avoiding carbs and frosting from a normal cake, but maybe you guys do
