Muslim Ban: Thinks the travel ban is discriminatory, un-American, and goes against America's values
His Political Rap Music: Doesn't rap with the intent of being political, he's speaking about his own personal experiences (i.e. extra TSA checks at airports). Thinks people consider it political because it's a perspective they're not used to.
Celebrities and Politics: Thinks that individuals who have a platform in these instances have a moral responsibility to speak up. Also, America essentially elected a celebrity as President, so why can't celebrities comment on politics?
Diversity in Hollywood: Thinks it's about investing in new voices and stories which will help to break down barriers between different groups of people. Thinks that people are starting to see that these risks can pay off in film and television.

In a recent interview, Scarlett Johansson talks about the controversy surrounding her casting as Major Motoko Kusanagi in 'Ghost In The Shell,' saying that she approached the role with a focus on gender and not race. Scarlett says that she "would never presume to play another race of a person" and that she would never want to feel like she was playing a character that was offensive. She goes on, saying that "having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity" and she can feel the enormous pressure of the weight of such a big property on her shoulders. Scarlett says that even though she's the top-grossing actress of all time, that doesn't necessarily mean that she's the highest paid, and that the gender wage gap is an uphill battle and fight.
- "In the Heights" opened off-Broadway February 8, 2007
- after years in production limbo, the movie rights were picked up last year by The Weinstein Company
in case you needed some proof, here's jordan singing a bit of "sunrise" with mandy
happy heights anniversary!! no para sigue!
-Gone is the old blue theme they used to sport
-They also will be phasing out "By Bravo" tagline that they've used for so long. It will be used very sparingly going foward
-They last redesigned 7 years ago and thought it was time to change things up again (by using a design that was apparently made up 10 years ago when looking at a leaked design sheet)
-It is not yet known if Bravo is bringing her back as a friend of (Tre's) or as a full time HW
-She and Theresa made up last year
-She and Jacqueline are still bitter enemies
-Lydia was last seen in Season 8, where she decided to quit after 1 season since the show just wasnt for her.
-Meghan King Edmonds is also following Heather Dubrows lead and quitting the show
With Bravo bringing back so many old HWs, who do you want to see return?
-Dwayne Johnson's film "Fighting With My Family" is based on WWE superstar Paige, the movie is about "the story of a family of wrestlers, with their dreams seeming to come true when the son and daughter (played by Jack Lowden and Florence Pugh) get a chance to compete in the WWE".
-Lena will play the film's matriarch as "brilliant/badass"
They couldn't come up with a way to rescue those people and get the thing that makes water? They could have taken the equipment and then come back on a rescue mission or something.
No unaired spoiler discussion with out an LJ Spoiler cut, please!
Obligatory, yes this show is still on the air. Season 34 and already renewed for 35/36!
- keri hilson visited the real to talk about her upcoming album tiled l.i.a.r. (love is a religion)
- "if you think about it, everyone believes different things. love is the one thing that requires sacrifice — there are so many similarities between religion and love. if we believe this will work, then we will do what it takes and we will be obedient. we’ll do what it takes to make it work. it’s religious. you got to be that committed to making love work."
beyonce l.i.a.r. follows hilson’s 2010 album, no boys allowed
- there isn’t a release date set for l.i.a.r. at this time.
Maxwell is wilding out this Black History Month. pic.twitter.com/qXXN9CXsPi— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry) February 8, 2017
Maxwell posted a semi-cryptic tweet saying, "#blackblueredwhitebeigehistory". Then followed it with a quote, "Including everyone in black history month is beneficial to all of us cause not all look a typical black..." Twitter then commenced dragging, with one writing, "This why ya last album went triple paper clip! Because the ancestors not playing that Kumbaya bullshit. FOH." To which Maxwell replied (via DM), "Check the numbers bitch."
Miller devises a dangerous plan to eradicate what's left of the protomolecule on Eros.
- “we dreaded the task of going out into the world and finding this person,” executive producer Hawk Ostly said
- A fan favorite from the books, she is described as : “Bobbie was not the right shape to fit into one of the standard suits, and the Marines made her jump through a series of flaming hoops every time she requisitioned a new custom one. At a bit over two meters tall, she was only slightly above average height for a Martian male, but thanks in part to her Polynesian ancestry, she weighed in at over a hundred kilos at one g. None of it was fat, but her muscles seemed to get bigger every time she even walked through a weight room. As a marine, she trained all the time.”
- “Most times we just went for the actor who understood the soul of the character, rather than the physicality that the book might have put forward,” executive producer Mark Fergus added
- Frankie Adams not only had the acting skills, as well as the height they wanted, but also had years of training as a boxer
- Adams would ask herself of any role : “Do I agree with the things she does, yes or no? Would I get a crush on this woman, yes or no?” (♥)
- “It requires you to work harder and to go to places that haven’t traditionally been on the radar. But when you do, you’re always getting rewarded for it.” says executive producer Naren Shankar on the casting job for the character
I definitely like that the series went the extra mile of finding the right actress with the same heritage and physicality of the role. I do agree with some fans that on the subject of Chrisjen, that perhaps they could have found a proper Indian actress to portray her. I feel like the third point above reflects their decision in this (sidenote : having followed the authors' twitter accounts, they both were fans of the game Destiny in which Shohreh voices a character and I wonder if this also played a part in them wanting her for the role). Anyway, thoughts on the ep? How are you all enjoying the season so far? =)
Got hit by a speeding loon while turning and he fled but cops were right there. Cops who talk to E!, apparently. Not a big deal. I'm good!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) 8 February 2017
I got out of the car and was like phew that was kind of a boring day anyhow.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) 8 February 2017
lmao it's like being alive but reading about your death. https://t.co/zUl37gEY6g— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) 8 February 2017
She was a passenger in the car that was hit, but fortunately she left the scene uninjured.

Full night of good TV! Got my plate full so I'm just now getting around to watching the ep on DVR, but wanted to post this for those who might want to discuss before the night is done =) Thoughts on the premiere?
my beautiful mother is every reason i need to cherish, love, and protect my sisters. nobody will ride for you like a black woman. period.— Kofi Siriboe (@kofisiriboe) February 7, 2017
Kofi Siriboe took time on Feb 7th to tweet out respect to the Black women in his life who have been there for him. Because we can't have nice things, some Becky named Claire Palmer thought it was an appropriate time and month to point out that color doesn't matter so don't mention it!
@kofisiriboe ! Really !! All good mums do those things no matter creed or colour!— Claire Palmer (@ClaireP04694087) February 7, 2017
Kofi graciously explained his reasoning behind the statement:
love & respect to all the good mums. i'm honoring my mom, my sisters and their bold, black skin. they deserve my specificity. https://t.co/Xp5Sd9BtgX— Kofi Siriboe (@kofisiriboe) February 8, 2017
black women built the pedestal I'll continue to put them on. pic.twitter.com/3YTKsneU44— Kofi Siriboe (@kofisiriboe) February 8, 2017
However, Black Twitter wasn't here for Claire:
Which would you rather deal with ONTD: a left wing or right wing Becky?

just an excuse to talk about this angel <3
Also, FYI, Law & Order: SVU aired its 400th(!!!!) episode last night!
ONTD, did you watch last night's episode? The Big 400? It was kind of wild tbh.
"I think I'm different. I started Gossip Girl 10 years ago when I was 20, and I'm 30 now. I loved doing it, and now I'm doing something else that I love, and something new that's a little bit more my taste as a 30 year old, something I've grown into. I feel so lucky that I can have such amazing fans and they either grew up with [the show] or they're growing up with it now. I've also heard people say, ‘Oh, we watch that as a throwback,’"
Making History (new show on Fox)
"When I went into [the show], and when I decided that I wanted to work consistently on something [since becoming a mom], I had criteria. I read other [scripts] too, but this was just the one. It was love at first sight,"
"I'm proud to work on a show that uplifts the female lead, and has a not-so-subtle yet approachable commentary on the treatment and mistreatment of women throughout the ages,”
this interview is less political and more bromantic than you think
