- Racially ambiguous グエン スッテファ二 (pronounced Gwen Stefani for you non-cultured folks) will have a cartoon show on Nickelodeon called 'Kuu Kuu Harajuku'
- The cartoon revives 'Love, Angel, Music, Baby' as characters in a band called HJ5 which another called called 'G' (I wonder who that could be based off?)
- The show is meant to air in early October, it was already in Australia for over a year
- None of the characters are japanese nor the cartoon have anything to do with Japan
- Gwen-chan clings to the word 'harajuku' as if it's her tsudere nii-chan
- She could've avoided all controvesy by removing the word 'Harajuku' in the title, because the show has nothing to do with it
- Baka Gwen-chan has previously faced backlash for using asian women as silent props, prepetuating racial stereotypes, dehumanizing them by giving them names such as Love, Angel, Music, Baby
- Was also in an similar incident in 2012, when No Doubt came back and the music video involved the Japanese popstar dancing in a teepee and wearing traditional clothing

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Joins ‘Fargo’ Season 3 https://t.co/AcuBJOyIBS— Variety (@Variety) September 16, 2016
Joining Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon, Winstead will play Nikki Swango who is described as "a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge playing. Nikki is a woman with a plan, focused on always being at least one move ahead of her opponents."
At a rally in Miami, Trump told his supporters that Hillary Clinton's bodyguards should quit doing their job, since Clinton wants to destroy the Second Amendment. “I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. I think they should disarm. Immediately. Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, O.K. Take their guns away. It’ll be very dangerous.”
Trump once more dog whistles violence, saying about Clinton's guards today, "Take their guns away, let's see what happens to her." #Shame— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) September 17, 2016
Spoken like a true psychopath. Worrying how much Trump wishes death on his opponents. A dangerous man. https://t.co/Cv2RSpRezs— Dominic Mitchell (@DomMitchell) September 17, 2016
Is Trump sinister? Or is he making point that if guns are ok to protect HRC, same should apply to avg. Americans? https://t.co/2FahxEhCH9— Kari Lake (@KariLakeFox10) September 17, 2016
- Henry's manager Dany Garcia, on the upcoming sequal: “Henry has a big appetite. We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property [for his production company Promethean], he’s filming [Justice League] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world.”
There's only a month left on Demi and Nick's super amazing somewhat-sold out Future Now tour - and to celebrate, Demi finally gave us a video for "Body Say" aka the underrated smash of the year
She also wished Nick a happy birthday with this cute photo collage of their friendship over the years

16 year old Elijah Scott was sent home from work at a Springfield, Ohio branch of grocery store Kroger, after a customer complained about the Colin Kaepernick jersey he was wearing.
According to a flyer posted on Scott's snapchat, every Sunday, employees are permitted to wear "NFL Gear" to work.
Apparently, a customer complained to management and said that he would not "shop there again" if Scott was allowed to wear the "disrespectful" jersey.
Scott was sent home to change his jersey and he came back to work in his Kroger shirt. His mother, Diane Scott, called the store and was told that since it was "September 11 and Elijah was on company time" he would "not be allowed to disrespect customers."
His father, Robert Scott: "I was upset, but I wasn't shocked... It's something you get used to after so many years."
Only after the family reached out to their local NAACP chapter, "store management admitted that they didn't handle the situation appropriately." The NAACP also received a call from Kroger corporate headquarters in Cinncinati with an apology.
Kroger issued a statement Friday afternoon: "We are aware of this situation and have apologized to Elijah and his mother. Diversity, inclusion and respect are among our company's core values and ones we strive to live up to every day."
The family has not heard of any disciplinary action to be taken against the assistant manager who sent Scott home. His father: "Somebody should be held accountable for what happened."
Scott has been invited to wear his jersey again on Sunday.

‘Being cute just made me miserable’: Mara Wilson on growing up in Hollywood https://t.co/eWNy5Trw3d— Guardian news (@guardiannews) September 17, 2016
The article is an edited extract from her book 'Where Am I Now: True Stories Of Girlhood And Accidental Fame'
- Her parents never pushed her into acting and always tried to keep her grounded
- Remembers the criticism she got for 'Miracle On 34th Street' and how the film critics would rather complain about her than directors and producers who treated children like dolls (she talks in the article the changes the director made to make her 'look cute')
- Talks about how her puberty had been discussed on set without her knowledge, realized that when the director asked her to wear a sports bra
- Searched for her name on the internet when she was 12 and got results such as: foot fetish, click here for nude pictures, she's doing a lot of movies now because soon enough she'll have boobs but still can't legally show them, etc.
- At 13 people stopped calling her cute. She was 'odd looking', got a script to play a fat girl (and would wear big clothes to make her look bigger)
- Mentions not being 'Hollywood pretty'; real world was more forgiving but her appearance anxieties were always there. She did a "where are they now?" interview at some point but they didn't air because they said she looked 'too pale'
in honor of hispanic heritage month, karla has written a powerful essay for pop sugar detailing her experiences growing up as in immigrant in the us. karla was born in cuba to a cuban mother and mexican father, when she was around 7 years old, she moved to miami with her mother, leaving her father — who met up with them a year later.
"with a couple hundred dollars, the clothes on our backs, no family in the united states, and no clue of what was going to happen next, that's exactly what we did. like my mom said, "i don't know where i'm going, but i can't stay here." and that was enough. why were we packing up our stuff? why was my grandma hugging me tighter than usual? where were we going? "we're going to disney world!" that's what my mom told me when we were crossing the border."
""i am so proud to be cuban-mexican. this country was built on immigrants. people who were brave enough to start over. how strong we are to leave behind everything we know in hopes of something better. we are not fearless, we just have dreams bigger than our fears. we jump. we run. we swim, we move mountains, we do whatever it takes. and so next time, when anybody wants to tell you they want to build a "wall" on our border, remember behind that wall is struggle, determination, hunger. behind that wall, could be the next cure for cancer, the next scientist, the next artist, the next drummer, the next anything they work hard enough to become!"

Some choice quotes:
No one was supposed to post a review until a few hours before its premiere. But there were five reviews up, one by Variety, and it was two more days till the premiere. The critics had broken the embargo. They were testing their words like North Korea testing atomic bombs. “Look what I can do,” they seemed to say. As with every bit of news today, bad stuff gets attention. The bad reviews were up. The movie hadn’t even opened yet.
The critics are not a voice for the people, yet they can affect the reputation and success of the movie. By writing early and with vehemence against The Light Between Oceans, it probably lost a couple million dollars in its first weekend. The first weekend is still the most important weekend for the movie. It determines the life a movie will have in theaters.
Beware, our Gone With the Winds might be gone with the wind. The romance genre is in danger of becoming extinct. People are losing their ability to be romantic. They barely notice each other anymore as they say “I love you” with an emoticon and hold phones instead of hands. And the critics, like lemmings, are jumping off the cliff with all the other unsentimental rodents.
There are common words in these reviews with the little “rotten” tomato before them. Words like “weepie,” “chick flick” and “melodrama.” Can we get over this “chick flick” thing? Are they saying only “chicks” have feelings? Women are writing, women are directing and men will be adapting women’s stories. (OP note: the movie was written and directed by a man based on a book by a man so I don't know where she's going with this...)
Derek says, “They don’t get to choose the music I use, the story I tell, the actors I choose, the camera position or pace of my edit … this is cinema! It’s not Burger King – they can’t have it their way.”
At first, I told him he was lucky. He was lucky to be in the ring, in the arena. Then, I thought truthfully. Derek was never lucky. He got where he is because he was, and is, persistent. Derek is talented. Derek earned this. And these critics can’t take that away.
We went to the premiere. The car ride to the red carpet can seem like a funeral at times. This would be the test. Finally, real people were watching. Someone told us that sometimes, when the movie is finished, the audience will pause before applauding. This means they’re taking it in and thinking. We watch the movie. My armpits sweat profusely and stain the Ralph Lauren suit I borrowed. The end gets close. The end is here. The audience applauds right away! Then, the audience stands up and faces Derek. They continue applauding. I started sobbing.
The Rotten Tomatoes score was getting “fresher.” (OP note: the score is currently 58 signifying the movie is rotten)The movie had opened in theaters. The people were now watching. (OP note: the movie is currently estimated to have made $10 mil in wide release) Everyone was sending Derek words of appreciation, and stories of audiences sobbing all across America. We allowed ourselves one last night to be enchanted. This time by duck confit and delicious French wine.
Do you ever blame your floppage on the critics, ONTD?

She got me shook.
Terry Gross, host of NPR's 'Fresh Air', asked former U.S. soccer player Abby Wambach about her sexuality and it went like this:
"I want to ask you more about comprehending your sexuality, your sexual orientation. You’d had a boyfriend in high school; you went to the prom together. You were considered like the jock couple of Rochester, New York. Was it helpful in the long run to have had a boyfriend, to have had sex with a boy so that you could know with more certainty, ‘No, I love women?'"
To which Abby replied:
"I think the person that I am, I’m kind of one of those people and maybe people get that from the book, I will pretty much try anything once. Because I can’t have an opinion about something that I don’t know of or that I haven’t experienced. And that’s kind of the same thing that went into sorting my sexuality out. Going to Catholic high school, Catholic grade school when I was younger, believing in this God that was basically telling me that the feelings I might be having internally were sinful. I was like ‘Alright, I gotta try this other life out. I gotta see about.’ And I tried, you know. I did what I was ‘supposed to do’ as a kid, and I dated the boy and I experienced the boy and as soon as I met and started dating my first girlfriend, I then got it. I understood what I was missing all along. And this is no disrespect to my boyfriend in high school; this is just like more of a knowing. I met this woman and I was like ‘Oh, I get it now. This is how you’re supposed to feel.'"
Terry also asked her about Catholic guilt she might have had and if she had any idea that she was 'sinning' when she had her first girlfriend.
You can listen to the whole interview here (the question is asked around 22min in). She's promoting her memoir, she talks about her upbringing, soccer, coming out, divorce, DUI, addiction problems, etc.
straight people, do you usually get asked if you ever had sex with someone of the same gender to decide if you're really straight?

- "As a minority, no sooner do you learn to polish and cherish one chip on your shoulder than it’s taken off you and swapped for another." As a kid he was viewed as black, as a teen as Paki, as an adult as Muslim
- "The reason for this is simple. America uses its stories to export a myth of itself, just like the UK. The reality of Britain is vibrant multiculturalism, but the myth we export is an all-white world of lords and ladies. Conversely, American society is pretty segregated, but the myth it exports is of a racial melting-pot, everyone solving crimes and fighting aliens side by side." He viewed the States as the Promised Land, somewhere he could play roles that wouldn't be race related and heck - where he might even get a role as a guy named Dave
- For movie 'The Road to Guantánamo' he had traveled through "The Axis of Evil", which didn't make entering the land of the free any easier
- He's got a proper USA visa now, but still gets "randomly" selected whenever he's flying from Heathrow, up to the point that he's starting to recognise the people doing the check.
- Anyway, interesting essay from a book about race and immigration, written by 21 British black, Asian and minority ethnic writers.
