-The Palace Theater has released promo shots for their upcoming production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London.
- The play stars black actress Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger.
- Some "fans" disapproved of the casting and author J.K. Rowling has now addressed the issue in a new interview
- She says: “With my experience of social media, I thought that idiots were going to idiot. But what can you say? That’s the way the world is. Noma was chosen because she was the best actress for the job. I had a bunch of racists telling me that because Hermione ‘turned white’– that is, lost colour from her face after a shock – that she must be a white woman, which I have a great deal of difficulty with. But I decided not to get too agitated about it and simply state quite firmly that Hermione can be a black woman with my absolute blessing and enthusiasm."

In case you missed it over this weekend Richard Simmons was hospitalized after a member of his staff called 911 since the fitness guru was exhibiting bizarre behavior. Since then Simmons has been released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. A representative for Simmons says that his incoherent behavior was actually a symptom of dehydration.
Simmons released a statement to US Weekly thanking everyone for their thoughts and concern and said that he is feeling much better now. “Summer is here," he said in his statement. "Drink plenty of liquids. Big hugs and kisses for caring.”

I'm glad he's feeling better!
A Definitive History in "Slut-Pop"
***** i dont condone the word slut before ya jump, but as history will have it, it is what it is, we'll take back the term gorls, think empowering, think destinys child anthem, think underarm hair, fuck men, anyway, the best thing to come outta the word slut is slut pop
slut-pop probably goes back as far as popular music does but for times sake i'll start in the 70s, the musicality of slutpop in the 70s was that of softness, it was almosty shy, demure, blurry, tender, it wasn't brash, it was hinted, it was feminine. the pioneer of the genre, donna summer (who doesn't get enough credit when were talking about popular music in general) really initiated the genre as we know it today, she started the template of an artist being mostly produced by someone else, being a muse of sorts, giving u visuals, and she turned out the music industry with "love to love you" ushering in an era of pop gorls being more sexually free in appearance, lyrically and perfomance-wise
Pionerring Hit: Donna Summer - "Love To Love You"
Andrea True Connection - "More, More, More"
Notable lyrics: (More, more, more) How do you like it? How do you like it?
Anita Ward - "Ring My Bell"
"You can ring my bell, ring my bell"
Labelle - "Lady Marmalade"
Notable lyrics: "Voulez vous coucher avec moi?"
The Staple Singers - "Let's Do It Again"
Notably lyrics: "I'm not a girl that could linger, but I feel like a butter finger"
the 80s basically disregarded all of the slutpop of the 70s, alot of the 80s slutpop was either r&b based or pop with an r&b angle, the beats were smutty, the lyrics were more forward, but had a tinge of luxury and personal opinions aside, madonna slayed and basically invented slutpop of the 80s
Pioneering Hit: Madonna - "Like a Virgin"
Samantha Fox - "Touch Me (I Want Your Body"
Notable lyrics: the whole song but ..
"Like a tramp in the night
Mary Jane Girls - "In My House"
Notable lyrics: "So when you need some lovin tenderness
*i think ya know what "my house" means
Alisha - "All Night Passion"
Notable lyrics:"All night, all night passion
Salt N Pepa - "Push It"
Notable lyrics:"Can't you hear the music's pumpin' hard like I wish you would? Now push it"
mainstream wise the 90s basically belonged to r&b and i could make a whole other post about slut-pop made by guys but "if" by janet jackson was a big moment in slut-pop because up until that point jan was pretty much a goody two shoes, but she gives the gorls straight up dirty sleazy slut pop magnum opus
Pioneering Hit: Janet Jackson - "If"
20 Fingers ft Gillette: "Short Dick Man"
Notable lyrics:"Don't want no short dick man
Adina Howard - "Freak Like Me"
Notable lyrics: "cause I will be a freak
until the day until the dawn
and we can pump, pump
all through the night till the early morn
come on and I will take you
around the 'hood on a gangsta lean
'cause we can pump, pump
any time of day it's all good for me"
Monifah - "Touch It"
Notable lyrics:"Give it to me give it to me call my name
Toni Braxton - "You're Makin Me High"
Notable lyrics: "All i want is
The 00's slowed it down a little, lyrics weren't as blatant as they were in the 90's and the beats weren't as smutty as they were in the 80's
** Nelly Furtado - "Promiscuious Girl" is not a slut-pop song, its a slut pop song subverted, its smarter and more aware than your average slut-pop song
Pioneering Hit: Willa Ford - "I Wanna Be Bad"
Khia - "My Neck, My Back"
Britney Spears - "Gimme More"
Notable lyrics:"You got me in a crazy position (uh huh)
Christina Milian - "Dip It Low"
"Dip it low
Pick it up slow
Roll it all around
Poke it out let your back roll
Pop pop pop that thing
Ima show you how to make your man say "Ooo""
Cassie - "Me & U"
Notable lyrics: "Baby, I'll love you all the way down
Heidi Montag - "I'll Do It"
Notable lyrics: "Pick me, take me, off up into ya dungeon
Pioneering Hit: Carly Rae Jepsen - "Hurt So Good"

The Golden State Warriors blow out the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-77. Draymond Green led the Dubs with 28pts, 7reb, and 5ast.

Love seeing everyone on the Warriors step up! Bogut was having himself a block party, the Brazilian Blur still got it, and Andre played great as always. Draymond when did you learn to hit 3s off the dribble?! You got me and Steph falling out of our chairs. On a more somber note, I hope Kevin Love gets better soon. It's never fun to see someone go out with injury.
That was some of the best child acting I've seen.
The Guardian: Rumi film will challenge Muslim stereotypes, says Gladiator writer. https://t.co/CeQntul8UT— Candle Conferences (@puzzlevardy) June 6, 2016
David Franzoni, who wrote the script for Gladiator, has agreed to work on a biopic about the 13th-century poet Jalaluddin al-Rumi.
Rumi was an Iranian Sufi religious scholar (born in modern day afghanistan) who is widely regarded as the greatest poet in history. The film plans to portray his life, highlighting his relationship with the mystic Shams of Tabriz that influenced much of his life and work. After Shams’s mysterious disappearance, a devastated Rumi wrote much of the love poetry that he is famed for. Also featured will be his fleeing from the Mongol invasion of Iran, leading him to eventually settle in Turkey where he died.
Franzoni and the films producer Stephen Joel Brown, said they would like Leonardo DiCaprio to play Rumi, and Robert Downey Jr to star as Shams of Tabriz, though they said it was too early to begin casting. “This is the level of casting that we’re talking about,” Brown said, while Franzoni added that the film 'will challenge Muslim stereotypes.' By casting white people as famed Islamic scholars, I suppose.
im so disgusted honestly leonardo di caprio?? as rumi?? what are they gonna do give him a fucking spray tan?? what next casting tom hanks as gandhi??
anyway everyone go and read rumi's quatrains theyre amazing

Zach Gilford and his former Friday Night Lights castmates, Taylor Kitsch, Aimee Teegarden and Minka Kelly are reuniting this weekend in Chicago to run a Spartan Race. Zach Gilford spoke with Runner's World about their reunion sharing that, "I think once Aimee and Minka realized what this was, they were like, 'Wait, what did we get ourselves into?'"
Gilford has been working with a trainer to prepare for the race, “I think Taylor is the most naturally equipped for this, but I have been working my ass off,” he said. “Although I can’t imagine the gun will go off and any one of us will be like, ‘See you later.’ I think we will do this as a group.”
The foursome originally agreed to do the five-mile course but Kitsch suggested they do the longer course, “Nobody balked; we were all like, ‘Yeah, let’s push ourselves,’” Gilford said.
The remainder of the Friday Night Lights cast, including Jesse Plemons, Adrianne Palicki, Gauis Charles, Connie Britton, Scott Porter, and more will be reuniting the day before in Austin during the ATX Festival.
It's Friday Night Lights reunion week, y'all!
"I cannot put into words how amazing this experience was. Having the opportunity to perform a song I wrote, with Usher and backed by The Roots at The Roots Picnic was unbelievable."
Mohamed Hadid -- Gigi And Zayn Are Still Together (VIDEO) https://t.co/AXQ5ValVYL— TMZ (@TMZ) June 6, 2016
- pap asks how gigi is holding up after the break up, mohamed says he didn't even know there was a break up
- he just had breakfast with gigi that morning (friday) and she didn't mention anything
- he's never met zayn, but he hears he's a very, very nice guy (lol)
- pap asks if he thinks its just a summer thing (fling?) and mohamed says "probably" but then quickly says "no, no, no"
- he "probably" thinks they're still together
meanwhile, e! news says the break-up is still on -- that's their story and they're sticking to it!
#ENews Poll: Which celebrity breakup shocked you the most?— E! News (@enews) June 6, 2016
mohamed hasn't met zayn nearly seven months into this very public and serious-seeming relationship, huh? why is gigi still wearing that necklace and talking about her "boyfriend" in interviews? what does yolanda think about all of this? AND WHERE IS ZAYN? next time on...
what are your theories, ontd? i'm personally leaning towards the "zayn is ghosting gigi" theory myself. at least this break-up/non-break-up is a bit juicy, right?
sorry mods, fixed it.
Ozzy Osbourne's ex manager claims split from wife Sharon is a 'publicity stunt' and rocker would never cheat https://t.co/w5gs0aXGRw— Daily Mail Celebrity (@DailyMailCeleb) June 6, 2016
-Steven Machat, who managed Ozzy in the 1980s, says their divorce is an attempt by Sharon to stir up publicity for Black Sabbath's tour, which started this month
-Machat claims Ozzy "isn't all there" and that he couldn't or wouldn't cheat on Sharon. He says Sharon knows how to use the media to make Ozzy relevant and says Sharon is Ozzy's nurse, mother & manager
-Rumor is that the split is a publicity stunt inspired by Lemonade after Sharon discussed their divorce on her talk show (The Talk) holding a glass of lemonade; Kelly also posted a photo of herself holding a lemon on Instagram
-Ozzy & Sharon are allegedly estranged but arrived in the same car at the Hollywood Palladium for an Ozzfest-related press conference
-Kelly recently suggested the "affair" was elder abuse
What's your favorite publicity stunt, ONTD?
