Paramore has been embroiled in a legal dispute with ex-bassist Jeremy Davis (pictured on left) since February of this year. A summary:
- Davis left the band in Dec. 2015 for unknown reasons
- Legal battle began in Feb. 2016 just months after he left, suggesting the split was not amicable
- Background: Paramore is owned by Varoom Whoa, a business entity which is in turn supposedly exclusively owned by Hayley.
- In Feb. 2016, Varoom Whoa preemptively sues Jeremy, to make the distinction that he is an employee of Paramore and not a business partner. As a partner, he would be entitled to more profits/royalties/etc. both from his time in the band and moving forward
- In March 2016, Jeremy countersues Varoom Whoa, Hayley, Taylor, and the band's business managers, saying he should be considered a partner.
- In court documents obtained by the Daily Mail, the band downplays his creative contributions, stating "Plaintiff is not listed as a co-author of any musical compositions embodied on the album Paramore, with the exception of a partial, one-minute-ninety-second interlude entitled 'Interlude: Holiday,' which is only available as part of the liner notes included with a purchase of the entire Paramore album, but not individually purchased singles."
- Jeremy is asking for the copyrights on songs to be changed to include his name, in addition to Hayley and Taylor's. Claims that he contributed to the funk sound of "Ain't It Fun," and that they agreed to share authorship over all the songs on the self-titled
- Jeremy's countersuit claims he "suffered substantial monetary damages as a result of Defendants' unlawful conduct, including, but not limited to, being excluded from participating in income arising from royalties, licensing, and other monies generated from the musical compositions and sound recordings embodied on the album Paramore."
Zac Farro helps record for new album
- Zac Farro, ex-drummer who left the band with his brother in 2010, has been recording drums for Paramore's new album
- When asked about it, he stated "They’ve asked me to play drums on their album, on their new album. So [Hayley] put it on their Instagram and put it on their website, and it’s no joke that I’m back just playing drums for them on their album [...] That’s it, and that’s literally all it is right now [...] We’ve always been friends, and yeah, there was a little bit of weirdness cause I left the band for a few years, but all that stuff is not even there anymore and there’s no hard feelings and it’s just been rad and fun."

* Glennon Doyle Melton runs the Momastery blog, and is best known for her 2014 book Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life. She also has a 2016 memoir Love Warrior and is good friends with Eat, Pray, Love's Elizabeth Gilbert.
* The news of Melton & Wambach's relationship comes three months after Melton announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton and two months after Wambach announced her divorce from wife Sarah Huffman.
* Melton on Wambach: “Abby is deeply sensitive and kind. The kids call her an M&M because she looks tough on the outside but inside she’s really mushy and sweet. Abby’s brave. Not just with her words but with her entire being. She has never been afraid to be herself, even when the world told her not to be. I learn from her everyday about the woman I want to become. She is committed to her friends and family. She has this sense of country and honor and chivalry that feels beautiful to me.”
* Melton is part of the United Church of Christ, a denomination known for being welcoming & inclusive towards the LGBTQ community. Back in 2014, the UCC filed a lawsuit against North Carolina, claiming that the state's ban on same-sex marriage violated the denomination's religious beliefs.
* Abby & other soccer fave Megan Rapinoe used to date. Abby broke her leg right before the Olympics and Pinoe broke up with her in the hospital. This has nothing to do with anything, I just felt like sharing the story courtesy of the good sis christen_press.

Following the previously reported story that Drake has been working with Taylor in the studio, it appears that he may be there in an even larger capacity than expected in order to help her succeed in yet another musical genre.
“Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album. She’s not afraid of experimenting so is working with a lot of different faces to see if she suits a new sound. The remix of her song ‘Bad Blood’ had a less pop vibe — especially once Kendrick Lamar featured on it — and was a big hit, so she thinks her fans will like her going in this direction.”
“As well as writing with Taylor, he’s producing a few tracks and even lent his vocals to one song."
“It’s a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”
The Dancer (La danseuse) is directed by Stéphanie di Giusto and tell the story of Loïe Fuller (read her wiki here), an icon of la Belle Epoque. And it's widely known that Gabrielle Bloch was her partner for many years.
Apparently for the director that's something not important. Stéphanie says she needed a male presence in a film full of women, so gave herself the liberty of coming up with a male interest that never existed, Louis Dorsay (played by Gaspard Ulliel).
"Loïe Fuller was homosexual and it was important for me not to make it the subject of the film"
There's one "lesbian moment" in the film, a kiss between Loïe Fuller and her rival Isadora Duncan, which according to this writer aims to humiliate the potential lesbian desire of Loïe - Isadora lets her kiss, asks her to undress and leaves her naked, abandoned.
When directly asked about the criticism that the movie is lesbophobic, she says that didn't wanna make 'Loïe Fuller a militant of her homosexuality,' and that in 1900 homosexuality in artistic contexts did not matter. That was her decision as a director.
Also adds that her relationship with Gabrielle was more 'intellectual', again mentions that didn't wanna make her some kind of gay activist (because portraying her as she really was automatically makes her a militant/activist?)
It has no release date in the US yet (not listed on imdb, at least). The movie stars SoKo as Fuller plus Lily-Rose Depp, Gaspard Ulliel, Mélanie Thierry, Amanda Plummer and Denis Ménochet.

George Lopez -- Temper, Temper ... Trump Can 'Suck My Ass' (VIDEO) https://t.co/cScUvAx1Gu— TMZ (@TMZ) November 14, 2016
TMZ papz caught up with comedian George Lopez, who let it rip.
Skam (previously mentioned in this post) is a youth drama about a group of friends attending high school in Oslo. The main this season isIsak, a 17 year old boy (played by an actual 17 year old) who has fallen in love, and has to come to terms with his sexuality as well as his relationship with his bro friends.
While the gay themed third season so far have gotten most of the attention, a lot of fans are also watching the past two seasons focused on the female characters. In the past two seasons the show have dealt with female friendship, the usual high school drama, but also eating disorders, islamophobia, feminism and sexual assault among other things.
Scenes are released in realtime throughout the week on the Skam website, and are later combined to form a full episode that air each Friday. So if the characters are attending a party at 2 in the morning, that scene will be posted at 2 in the morning. Group chats, texts and instagram posts made by the characters are also posted on the site as part of the narrative.
As this is a Norwegian show the new non Scandinavian fans petitioned NRK to add English subtitles and had the hashtag #WeNeedEnglishSubsForSkam trending.NRK had to decline as the shows amazing soundtrack and music rights are only negotiated for a Norwegian speaking audience. This hasn't stopped anyone and interested viewers can find illegal help and subs on tumblr (not that I’m encouraging that, as previously mentioned it's illegal).
As far no international buyers outside the nordic countries have shown interest. NRK tried shopping the show around this summer at Cannes but no deals were struck. NRK’s sellers cited negative reaction to scenes of excessive drunkenness and they believed the show is too progressive and innovative for foreign buyers to handle. But now with excited fans all over the world, hopefully someone will see the potential and make the show legally accessible for non Norwegian speakers.
(Fun fact: some years back NRK sold the rights to their success Øyevitne which is now the USA remake Eyewitness that has a lot of fan overlap with Skam)

Just months are splitting with up Wilmer Valderrama, Demi Lovato has been linked to yet another new man: UFC fighter and model, Luke Rockhold.
The pair met at the Unbreakable Performance Center in Los Angeles, where Demi trains and works out daily. An insider told E! News that it's "pretty new and fun at this point," and that "she is not looking for something that serious, but if something evolves naturally over time she is willing to go with it and explore it."
Demi and Luke were most recently spotted out and about at UFC2025 in Madison Square Garden in New York, holding hands after the match, and at the Los Angeles Rams football game on November 6th.

"It was obvious there's a connection between the two," an E! News eyewitness revealed about the pair's football game date. "He would scoot closer to her when they were at the table watching the game."

A follow up to this
In a staff memo, People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle explained and defended the reasoning behind his decision, saying that:
- it's in no way a celebration or endorsement of a "deeply polarizing figure"
- continus to stand by Natasha (People writer Natasha Stoynoff was physically attacked by Trump in 2005), and her attack is mentioned on the story
- it seemed wrong choosing anyone other than the president-elect on the cover
- the magazine celebrates tolerance and inclusion, no matter who's president
Some of the things Cagle doesn't realize:
- the problem isn't just Trump being on the cover but giving him the 'glamour-shot treatment'
- this person sexually assaulted one of their own writers, advocates hate and promised to crack down on the free press, and the best cover/story People can come up with is "his life, his family, and his astonishing journey"

Mods, the videos might not seem like they show up in the visual editor (for some reason), but they are there when you check the preview.
"Most roles are Chinese" has quelled some fears of Hollywood whitewashing, but I'll only breathe once the roles are cast. It also lets us know that filming is expected to take place from April 2017 to October 2017 and that they'll be shooting in China.
Mulan: 18-20 years old to play 18. Must be able to speak fluent English and Mandarin. Lithe, athletic, quick, tougher than she looks. Mulan lives in rural China in 630 AD, and her country is under attack by the Gokturk invaders. When her aging father volunteers to join the Army, Mulan sneaks out by night and takes his place, strapping down her breasts so she can pass for a man. There is a mysterious power inside Mulan, a power of speed and coordination and sheer force that places her at the peak of her unit -- where no one suspects her secret.
Chen Honghui: In his 20s, must be able to speak fluent English and Mandarin. Strapping, cocky, and handsome. Honghui is another recruit who joins Commander Tung's unit, and he's determined to be the best soldier in human history. Full of himself, with a mean, bullying streak to him, he quickly realizes that Mulan is his chief rival, but he does not realize that she is a woman. Grittily determined to be simply the best at everything, Honghui is increasingly peeved by Mulan's ability to match or out maneuver him. But after learning that his rival is a woman, his intense feelings of rivalry turn into something different. Something like love.
anyone eligible gonna go for it even though it's a long shot?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans chose not to stand while the song played during this Sunday's game. And he plans to keep doing this as long as the Grand Orange Wizard is president-elect.
“I don’t want to, you know, disrespect the veterans or anything. The men and women who serve this country, I’m forever indebted to them. But the things that’s been going on in America lately, I’m not going to stand for that.When Ashton Kutcher comes out and says we’ve been punked, then I’ll stand again. If this happens, then America’s not right, right now,” Evans said. “I said this a long time ago. When [Trump] ran, I thought it was a joke, and the joke continues. I’m not a political person that much, but I got common sense. And I know when something’s not right.”
The Buccaneers released this blah statement: “The Buccaneers are deeply committed to the military and honoring the great men and women that have dedicated their lives and have made great sacrifices to insure all the tremendous freedoms we have in this great country. We encourage all members of our organization to respectfully honor our flag during the playing of the National Anthem. We also recognize every individual’s constitutional right to freedom of speech, which is crucial to the American principles we cherish.”
On another note, while Drumpf's 60 Minutes interview did boost CBS' ratings, it was still down 25 percent in comparison to Obama's interview back in 2008. And Sunday night football beat it in ratings overall that night with NBC in the lead, followed by FOX.

And none for Kevin.
Have you ever wondered what your fave likes to read? Are they an embarrassing Ayn Rand fan like Amber Heard and Chelsea Handler? Is their favourite book "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho like (of course) Will Smith? Maybe they don't read at all, like Victoria Beckham and Jamie Oliver? Or (hopefully) they have some interesting book recs... Here are 20 celebs and their favourite books.
Song of Solomon, Toni Morrison
"Morrison makes compelling real-world magic in this book. The main character, Milkman, learns about generations of his family and the struggle of black men living in the South. As he discovers his identity, Morrison lets him fly (literally). She helps you see something that you've never seen in life or movies or art. When I finished it I thought, 'That's the best book I've ever read. The best one.'"
His full list of favourite books here
A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
"When stories become iconic, you sometimes forget what made them so special in the first place. They can become the punch line to a joke. But A Tale of Two Cities not only has the best first line ever written—"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"—it's got everything! The novel has wine, guillotines, revolution! It has the storming of the Bastille! It has Madame Defarge, one of the best villains in any literary novel. At the end, it's got a little romantic switcheroo: One man stands in the place of another and dies for the woman he loves. The first line is fitting right now. It's a very have and have-not time. It's certainly the most hopeful period for our country but also a very bleak one for a lot of people".

The Golden Notebook, Doris Lessing
"The extraordinary novel that changed my life and the lives of so many other young women in the 1960s. I have the paperback copy I read at the time, and it's dog-eared, epiphany after epiphany marked so that I could easily refer back to them. Does anyone read The Golden Notebook nowadays? I don't know, but back then, just before the second stage of the women's movement burst into being, I was electrified by Lessing's heroine, Anna, and her struggle to become a free woman. Work, friendship, love, sex, politics, psychoanalysis, writing—all the things that preoccupied me were Lessing's subjects, and I can remember how many times I put the book down, reeling from its brilliance and insights."
Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov
"I read it for the first time in fourth grade, because I was told that it had sexy parts. And because Nabokov is such a good writer, I was unable to find any of the sexy parts. Obviously, elderly men should not molest young women, but it has this incredible ability to flip the tables and remind you that characters are complex and humans are troubled.''
Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
Lawrence's Hunger Games costar Donald Sutherland introduced her to the novel one day while the two of them were doing what actors do most on set—waiting. "We were talking about Walt Whitman and Leaves of Grass, and he mentioned this novel, which he gave me on his last day of shooting. I really wasn't expecting to like it. I thought I wouldn't want to finish an 800-page book, but then I started slowing down and reading the same chapters over and over. You fall in love with the characters; you grow up with them."
Her full list here.
The Color of Water, James McBride
"My mother is white and my father is black, so I felt an immediate connection to this story of an interracial family. It's a memoir written by the son of a Jewish woman and a black Baptist minister. The story follows his mother's efforts to find acceptance. Eventually, she decides to give up her faith and become a Baptist. She's criticized for doing so, and that's really what the book is about—how she chooses to live her life, how she's judged and how her decisions affect her children".
Her full list here
Bento’s Sketchbook, John Berger
"A reflection by one great lens-grinding thinker and revolutionary humanist on another: John Berger — our contemporary — writes on Benedict Spinoza, the 17th-century philosopher so influential for the Enlightenment. But he also writes on drawing, on living, on life and on living life now. For those not familiar with one or both, this is a great introduction to the company of two seminal souls".
Full list here
"All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque; Slaughterhouse-Five, by Kurt Vonnegut; and The Things They Carried, by Tim O'Brien. They're classics because they're f--king great".
The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
"I was reading Louis de Bernières's trilogy on Latin America and this book came up [on amazon.com] as something I might like, so I bought it. It's now my favorite novel—it's just the greatest explosion of imagination, craziness, satire, humor, and heart." The fantastical work so captured Radcliffe that for his 21st birthday, he traveled to Russia to visit the author's apartment in Moscow. "There are passages that have become everyday Russian sayings. For instance, 'Manuscripts don't burn.' If it had ever come out that this book was being written, Bulgakov would likely have disappeared permanently. That phrase stands for the fact that nothing is more powerful or more indestructible than the written word."
His full list here
Lucy, Jamaica Kincaid
"My heritage is Caribbean, and I'd never read anything that really breaks down Caribbean culture politically, historically, socially, and in terms of gender. Lucy did that—it called out to me, to the kind of life I had and the kind of person I am. One thing I love about the book is how painfully honest Kincaid is about Lucy's issues with her mother. Lucy is fueled by pride and rebellion and pain, but the emotions guiding her at first aren't the ones driving her at the end of the story. She realizes she needs to make peace with the fact that no matter how far she might go in the world, she will never stop being her mother's daughter. This story has one of the most amazing endings. I cried for three days after I read it."
Her full list here.
"My favorite book is Replay, by Ken Grimwood, about a man who replays his life and the decisions he's made over and over. The takeaway for me was that no matter what life you've led or the choices you've made, there will always be great love and great sadness—you can't escape those two things. I think that's a great lesson".
The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett
"I wanted to be Mary Lennox so badly. I still have a soft spot for gardens and I'm always going off to see if I can find locked doors inside them."
The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K LeGuin
"Forced to pick a single sci-fi novel, I’ll go with this because, in ways even beyond most sci-fi, it is so far ahead of its time. You’re left believing entirely in the worlds she’s imagined, including a better version of this one".
Full list here
Hills Like White Elephants, Ernest Hemingway
"This short story contains some of the most exquisite dialogue I’ve ever read. It’s only four pages, covering about three quarters of an hour, as a couple waits for a train in Spain. You come to realise that they’re talking about the woman having an abortion. They never speak about it overtly but their story is just heart-breaking. Again, this is all about people beginning to recognise the huge distance between them. It’s a very appealing story for an actor because the drama exists in what is not spoken."
“Well, my favorite author is Mark Twain. He’s smart, and funny. Huckleberry Finn, especially the chapter all the purists hate, in which Tom Sawyer stages an elaborate rescue of Jim, is a writer having as much fun as possible. But my favorite book is a two-parter by Laurens Van Der Post, A Story Like The Wind and A Far Off Place. My favorite book used to be The Plague by Albert Camus.”
Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston
"Zora Neale Hurston's classic is my favourite love story of all time. Janie Mae Crawford spends almost two decades with abusive dominating men but eventually finds true love with Tea Cake. In the time they have together, he teaches her to open her heart to the world."
Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell
"This was the present I gave everyone I knew for three years. It's six different stories told in different time periods and genres: One is historical fiction, another is a '70s thriller mystery, the sixth is a postapocalyptic story. It's one of the most beautiful, entertaining, challenging books—something that takes all your attention. I think the stories are meditations on violence, specifically the necessity of violence.
Her full list here
Thérèse Raquin, Émile Zola
"This story seeps into your insides - the way Zola describes the intensity of the relationship between a woman and the man with whom she has an affair. When you meet Thérèse, she barely speaks. She's so numb and stagnant. I think we've all been in those emotional places at one time or another. That lack of courage, lack of confidence, has always profoundly disturbed me. She is transformed through passion and desperation. She and Laurent love each other so much that everything else fades away. They don't think beyond being together. And, of course, it's the act that makes that possible - drowning her husband - that destroys them.
Fantastic Mr. Fox, Roald Dahl
"I was in second or third grade when my sister read this to me. I remember that when she was finished, I insisted she start right over again. I attribute my love of drama to having heard her do all the characters' voices."
Her full list here
Persuasion, Jane Austen
"Everyone has their Austen, and this is mine. Sparer, more savage - and also more poignant than Pride and Prejudice, this is a novel that tells us wisely and wittily about the nature of romantic entanglements and the follies of being human. It isn't riven with the deep, muscular ironies of, say, Emma, but there is something about the dry lightness of Persuasion that is deceptive. It stays with you long after you've read it."
