Nightwish singer Floor Jansen has told Metal Nation Radio host Owais "Vitek" Nabi that she's tired of the term "female-fronted" for bands.
"There seems to sometimes be an entire genre called 'female-fronted metal.' 'Oh, so you're in a female-fronted metal band?' 'Oh, yeah? Am I?' What on earth does that say? Because then REVAMP [Floor's side project] is a female-fronted metal band, and so is NIGHTWISH. But those bands don't sound alike at all. ARCH ENEMY is a female-fronted metal band, but so is DELAIN. They don't sound alike at all. The only thing they both are are metal bands, but the style within metal is so massively different that it doesn't really say much whether there's a girl singing or not. So it's really not so important. Plus, to emphasize the difference in sex between men and women, I think we've had that time by now."
Floor >>> supposed feminist pop stars, tbh.
-Khloe is North's Godmother. No godfather.
-Kim and hubby Kanye West, Khloé and North all had dinner with Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat.
The theory is that top billing is supposed to belong to the most important character in the movie so really this is all about Batman and Superman is just a beefier superpowered Robin even though this is technically a sequel to Man Of Steel. Gal Gadot gets billing too but no Jason Momoa (who will likely just be a short cameo)
- Tried to get in Artist entrance for Drake performance
- Security said it was at capacity
- Biebs & Co said they had the proper wristbands
- Biebs said Drake PERSONALLY invited him
- Coachella staffer (not security but someone working) said she would take him inside the artist entrance - takes his arm they begin to walk
- Coachella security came up behind and put Bieber in a chokehold
- Biebs team and Coachella security got into a heated argument
- Biebs voluntarily left
- Biebs might press charges

ONTD, are you ready for VH1 to take the dating throne back?
So Jasper lied about the video and Eleanor likes not having power sooooo where does that leave us now? Also I loved Ophelia's dress
It'll be starting in 30 min! (I'll try my best to update the post with pictures as the event goes on).
Potential major spoilers for this season.
An interview with Gwendoline Christie for the New Zealand Herald had this to say about the current season of 'Game of Thrones'.
“Christie can’t say much about what season five brings, though her next combat challenge seems to involve Sandor’s big brother, Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane.”
-Wonder Woman Director, Michelle Maclaren has left due to "Creative Differences"
-She has in the past directed some of the better episodes of Breaking Bad and GoT
-They need to apoint a director soon so that they do not fall behind Schedule
I'm already nervous about this character based on the actress and who is handling her on BvS, this is not making me feel better. DC have not proved themselves enough to get a free pass.
-Marvel have hired GotG co-writer Nicole Pearlman and Meg LaFauve(Pixar's Inside Out writer) to write the screenplay for Captain Marvel
-Movie does not yet have a director nor has Carol Danvers been cast.
-Thor:The Dark World was going to be directed by a Patti Jenkins (Monster) but they quickly parted ways so they have tried before.
Now can they stop being so goddamn white both on and offscreen??
ONTD are you confident of the DCCU? Marvel have had bts drama too but they've earned my trust plus they have Feige overlooking everything. Do not trust Snyder as the unofficial father of DCCU.
Have you ever snitched, ONTD?
Without even trying, Billboard created a blind item about a pop star at Coachella this weekend. In an interview with Ryn Weaver, Ryn had this to say about one of her peers...
Starting @ 22:50
"Which is like, so tragic, can't like, 'No! we don't think you're over! Like, playing for us, we love you!' But those are the complexes of this weird industry too, you see it all the time. With, as people age, they get...
I will, an unnamed pop star, that I saw this weekend, threw me SO MUCH SHADE (Billboard: Whaaaaat?) I was like EXCUSE ME, DARLING? I was like, I've seen you many a times, and you saw me back when I was NOTHING, and you were nice, and now things are going well for me. And she's talking, to my friend, and we're walking, but she's looking at me the whole time that she's talking, for like a minute, and it's so awkward, and I'm like "Hi!" and she's goes "Ummmmm" and she just kept talking and like... Shade. The shade is real. It is hard out here for a girl. That is all I will say. A lady in this fucking-- sorry. In this game. A lady in this game. And it's tough. Because the girls bully you. It's weird. It's a weird -- it's a weird game. They bully you until they have no choice but to like you.

There's a lot of popstars at Coachella. Who is Ryn Weaver talking about?
For the five of us who watch the show.
What do you guys think of S2? I'm really enjoying it and I have no idea where they're taking the story/characters, but I'm sure it'll be a helluva ride.
We all know that ONTD Doesn't Read™ (and I swear, some of y'all don't even read the post titles anymore lol) but we also love a good book post, right? Well here's something for both crowds (or is it only one crowd and we actually DO read, just not on ONTD? I digress): a list of 8 books whose purpose is to recommend other books to you.
Good for: people who don't read much but would like to start; people who are overwhelmed by the number of books in the world; people who go to book clubs; people who can't spend hours on Goodreads looking for something that looks appealing; people who have a zillion "to read" books but never know what to read next.
#1 - The Novel Cure (Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin)
This is a book of "literary remedies" and it is seriously the best thing ever. Basically, it recommends books to cure or ease your problems, be they physical (from insomnia to haemorrhoids, including not having enough orgasms), emotional (being judgemental, procrastination, low self esteem, etc) or even monetary (there isn't a student loans entry, but you can check out being broke or unemployment). There are also cures for "reading ailments", like tendency to skim, being put off by tomes, inability to give up halfway through, etc. And of course there are thematic lists like the ten best break-up novels and the ten best novels to read in hospital. All in all this is a real gem of a book, written in a nice easy style and I've gotten some good recs from it (like Carter Beats the Devil for a long airplane journey).
#2 The Book Lovers' Companion (Various authors; foreword by Lionel Shriver)
I have very little time to squander on bad books, and too many books I want to read during my lifetime. So, it helps to have a guide like this one. It's got something like a hundred highly recommended titles (both classics and popular fiction), each with a non-spoiler synopsis, date of publication, book length, discussion points (for book clubs), background info, what the critics said and suggested companion books. It is seriously AWESOME. I can't wait to read every single one of the books recommended. Oh, and of course there are some thematic lists, like Top 10 World Classics; Top 10 Gay Reads; Top 10 Quick Reads and Top 10 Sci-Fi Books.
#3-5 Book Lust; More Book Lust; Book Lust to Go (Nancy Pearl)
Think of Nancy Pearl as your friendly librarian (she is, in fact, a librarian), who you'd come up to for recommendations on, say, books about women's friendships, action heroines, ghost stories, Cold War spy fiction or books about Asian American experiences. Think of a topic, any topic, and she can recommend books about it for you. Of course, since there are like a zillion topics in her books, she doesn't spend too much time talking about each recommended book, but they are still handy guides that can be used to their full advantage when combined with Goodreads. Fair warning, she is American and even though the books feature several topics on fiction and non-fiction from and about Africa, the Balkans, Cuba, etc, she does give each American state a section (and there aren't exactly many non-Americans who are just dying to read everything about Nebraska) and I think she is very deficient in Latin American fiction (she picked Jorge Amado and Paulo Coelho as the Brazilian representatives, yikes).
#6 Read This Next (Howard Mittelmark, Sandra Newman)
This one is kind of like The Book Lovers' Companion in that it focuses on not-so-many books (compared to the "1001" lists) but highly recommended, and talks about them in some depth. However, the approaches are completely different. This one is a lighter, more humourous book, with playful commentary from the authors. The humour won't be to everyone's tastes, of course, but if you don't want to feel like you're getting reading assignments from a college professor this just might be the book for you. The titles are divided in sections like Love; Memoir; Politics; Humour; War; Work and Money; Death; etc, and each book rec comes with a little synopsis, the historical context in which the book was written, some anecdotes, a bit of background on the author, funny discussion questions for book clubs, etc.
#7 1001 Books for Every Mood (Hallie Ephron)
Ok let's say that the way you look for books to read isn't by genre, or subject, or author, or because it's popular or critically acclaimed. Maybe you just want something for a good cry, or you want to feel afraid, or you want to indulge in a revenge fantasy. Maybe you're just in the mood for a good laugh. Well, this is the book for you. In addition to the moods there are also symbols that indicate if the title in question is a quick read, provocative, influential, humourous, etc. Pretty nifty, eh?
#8 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die (Peter Boxall)
Ok, this is just the kind of book that gives me so. much. anxiety. Like, I gotta read 1001 books before I die??? There's not enough time!!! And at the same time, (Locke voice): don't tell me what I must do! But it couldn't be missing from this list, right? Anyway I have a friend with a bike who tells me that a list of 1001 anything has got to have a lot of filler crap. He's probably right. But there are a lot of good recs here. You'll find that plenty of the books recommended by the books above can be found in this volume. So, you know, don't pressure yourself: skim it and add the stuff that looks appealing to your to-read list; ignore the weird obscure self-indulgent crap. Or cross-reference it with another title from this list.

As for the other debuts, Capitol’s Brian Wilson and IAmSound’s Lord Huron both earned around 16k, landing at #16 and #14 respectively.
The soundtrack to Universal’s Furious 7 earns another 45k and moves to #2, up 25% for album sales. However, it pushes to #1 with 107k on the Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart, thanks in large part to Wiz Khalifa's single.
