For Wednesday, July 17, 2103:
'The power is in the numbers and the communities,' Clef said on 'RapFix Live,' featuring activist Kevin Powell and attorney Stacey Richman.
The 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida left many wondering about race, the right to bear arms and Florida's stand your ground law. In the aftermath of the shooting and George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict, some Americans still had unanswered questions. Wednesday's (July 17) "RapFix Live" attempted to offer some perspective and suggestions on how to move forward.
Wyclef Jean, Prodigy, president of non-profit BK Nation and defense attorney Stacey Richman sat with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway to discuss the fallout from Saturday's controversial jury decision.
At the end of the show, Wyclef performed his Trayvon-dedicated single, "Justice (If You're 17)," but before that, he urged frustrated youth to get involved in local politics and use their right to vote to help change the laws that could've changed the outcome of the trial.
"Are we really pushing the right laws in our communities? Are you really voting for the right senator in your community? Are you voting for the right mayor?" he questioned.
After "RapFix" audience member asked 'Clef how he will use his celebrity voice to fight for the cause, he messaged that the power is within the people. "The real celebrity is you... you authorize me and you give me the power and you make me famous and you are millions," he explained. "So imagine if you took that same energy and decided that you want to go change a law in congress. The power is not in the celebrity... the power is in the numbers and the communities."
What is the mystery link between JK Rowling and Judith Callegari, the Surrey mother of two revealed as the Deep Throat at the centre of the “Robert Galbraith” publishing plot?
At first there was speculation that @JudeCallegari, who unmasked Rowling by tipping off the Sunday Times, was a cover name for an interested party — perhaps one of the publishers or even the author herself. But the Londoner has now discovered tweets to the account from Paul Callegari, a partner at international legal firm K&L Gates, and tracked down Judith’s Facebook profile, which is full of wholesome photos of the young couple’s family adventures.
Far from being yet another furtive nom de plume, the Callegaris, much like Rowling’s famous Dursley family, look like “the last people you’d expect to be involved in anything strange and mysterious”. A fan of Peter Kay and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, Judith’s typical updates included “Rain rain go away come back on a day when I haven’t got 25 children coming for a party”.
Her profile has since been taken off the site and neither she nor her husband Paul have responded to attempts to contact them. So how did this couple end up exposing what was, briefly, the best-kept secret in publishing?
Could the connection be Paul’s legal work? K&L Gates’s blue-chip clients include Starbucks, Microsoft and Goldman Sachs. Or is there a more elaborate personal connection between Rowling and Mr and Mrs Callegari — something as unexpected as finding a wizard at No 4 Privet Drive?
Even the trailer for Scandal made me feel euphoric – after all, this show has the first black female protagonist in a network drama in nearly 40 years. Even better, in the show itself race does not assume a character of its own – it is not the epicentre, it is merely incidental and I, and many others (at least, my twitter feed) are thankful for this.
Scandal, which recently started its second series on More4, stars Kerry Washington as the powerhouse that is Olivia Pope, a middle-class, Republican (don't hold it against her), elite crisis manager in Washington DC. She fixes problems: not run-of-the-mill ones, but problems on a colossal scale. The show has been praised for having a racially diverse cast. The characters are defined by the essence of who they are, not by the pigmentation of their skin. Pope is a host of contradictions: unapologetically bold but not above reproach; formidable but not immune from the pang of vulnerability. Pope is a fully realised person, which, in regards to roles given to black actors, is a rarity.
There is Luther, of course, starring Idris Elba as the eponymous detective chief inspector. Elba plays quite possibly the most complex role in British television of any actor at the moment, let alone black British actors. While his success should be celebrated, there is still much progress to be made, especially when it comes to black British female actors.
We do not have black British female protagonists on our televisions, let alone ones who display the layers and depth of Olivia Pope. The last time one graced our screens was circa 199never, and this needs to be both challenged and resolved. Not only is there a need for roles for black British female actors, these roles need to be cultivated within a post-racial context.
Luther may provide the genesis of this change. Like Scandal, the critically acclaimed thriller could also be described as post-racial (op: i fucking HATE this term). He is a fantastically flawed detective who happens to be black, not a black fantastically flawed detective. Does the fact that Elba is the associate producer of the show ensure that his race is not the focal point? Would Olivia Pope be the Olivia Pope we know and love if she was not the creation of Shonda Rhimes (head writer and executive producer of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice)?
This is not to say that white writers are incapable of creating roles for black actors that do not adhere to the same tired narratives of gun crime, for example — but if the likes of Channel 4's Top Boy is anything to go by, that seems to be a truism. In Hollywood, there is a generation of female actors rising up and creating the roles they want to play – roles that are free from male domination and do not reduce them to one-dimensional subordinates. There is no reason why black British female actors cannot also rise up and do the same on this side of the Atlantic – the onus is on them, and existing black writers, to do so.
Film producer and screenwriter Sheila Nortley, who we have to thank for the remarkable short film Zion, says: "Black screenwriters can improve the representation of black females on TV by simply being great writers and applying the due diligence and care needed to cultivate any believable character in a narrative to their black characters. This should maybe come from a sense of responsibility not only to their race, but also to their art as writers."
Hopefully, the next time I see a trailer starring a black female protagonist, her accent will be British.
News Corp.’s (NASDAQ:NWS) recently independent media arm, 21st Century Fox, is trying to show this movie studio still has superhero muscle, highlighting the upcoming X-Men, Wolverine, and Fantastic Four films due out in the next couple of years at Comic-Con in San Diego, California, this week.
Fox has fallen behind rival Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS), which owns Marvel Entertainment and the rights to Marvel’s creations, in the comic-book movie adaptation game. Disney has seen great success with its Iron Man and Avengers films. Other studios also capitalizing on the superhero trend include Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) Sony Pictures Entertainment with the popular Spider-Man series, and Time Warner Inc.’s (NYSE:TWX) Warner Bros. studio with the Batman Dark Knight films.
Fox kicked off the trend as the first studio to capitalize on comic book adaptations (lol not true). Fox has a 20-year deal with Marvel that began years before it was purchased by Disney and Marvel characters started hitting the big screen, giving the company the rights to characters from the X-Men and Fantastic Four series. Fox’s X-Men films released in 2000 and 2002 garnered commercial and critical success, but the third X-Men flick and the two Fantastic Four movies flopped with critics, comic book geeks, and the box office.
Comic book adaptations took the top two box office slots in 2012 and have done so again so far this year, and Fox is determined not to miss out on the trend after several flops. The studio is releasing The Wolverine, based on the X-Men character of the same name, later this month, in addition to another X-Men sequel in summer 2014 as well as a new Fantastic Four movie by 2015.
Fox is banking most on next summer’s X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. The movie was given a huge $200-million budget and will be heavily promoted at Comic-Con, which hosts a notoriously harsh audience. If Fox plays its cards right and the movie is well received, some are predicting it could compete with The Avengers’s box office take of $1.5 billion.

OOPS SHE DID IT AGAIN
While Ooh La La may have had a bumpy start, it surely took a turn for the better this time around. Last week the summer anthem was at a sad #94, but thanks to the release of a fresh new video Ooh La La is now at #54. If this streak keeps up it won't be long before it outsells the 3x platinum Scream & Shout. Britney's last solo song on the charts, Criminal, peaked at a mere #55.
Fantasia, we had a hunch! The Grammy winner and American Idol champ will return to the stage in the upcoming Broadway production of After Midnight, in which she’ll be the first in a rotating roster of guest star headliners who will join the show throughout its run. Fantasia will perform from the beginning of previews on October 18 through February 9, 2014, and she will be the headliner when the show has its official opening on November 3.
Conceived by Jack Viertel, After Midnight is an evocative new musical that tackles the sexy, smoky glamour of the Jazz Age, set in the heyday of Duke Ellington’s years at Harlem’s Cotton Club. The ever-changing list of stars is reflective of the Cotton Club’s weekly rotation of guests during its “Celebrity Nights,” which included the likes of Lena Horne, Judy Garland, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
After Midnight will feature 25 vocalists and dancers, 17 big-band musicians (hand-picked by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis, who serves as musical director) and a narrative comprised of Langston Hughes poetry.
Warren Carlyle directs and choreographs After Midnight, which is itself a new production of Cotton Club Parade, the smash musical that played two sold-out engagements at New York City Center. The creative team includes Isabel Toledo (costumes) and Ruben Toledo, John lee Beatty (set design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), Peter Hylenski (sound design) and Daryl Waters (musical supervision). Complete casting and musicians will be announced shortly.
Fantasia catapulted to fame in 2004 as the winner of American Idol, defeating Broadway vet Diana DeGarmo for the title. Her debut album, Free Yourself, received four Grammy nominations and was followed by a second self-titled release. Fantasia made her Broadway debut in April 2007 when she took over the role of Celie in The Color Purple, receiving a Broadway.com Audience Choice Award and Theatre World Award for her performance. She later toured with the show. She won a 2011 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “Bittersweet,” the lead single from her third solo album, Back to Me. Fantasia also headlined her own VH1 reality series, Fantasia for Real. She released her fourth studio album Side Effects of You in April.
Farrah Abraham is sure getting a lot of attention lately. Unfortunately for her, most of it has been negative. In the latest development, Michael Lohan has taken on the reality star for her “evil” ways. The two crossed paths at The Lukens Institute where Farrah was seeking treatment earlier this month and Michael wasn’t impressed.
“When you look into her eyes, all you see black, darkness, evil,” Michael tells Radar Online in a new interview. “I feel sorry for her. She had her day in the sun with her sex tape and her career is going to end here. She thinks she’s going to be like the Kardashians. Wow, how delusional!”
Michael’s comments come on the heels of an interview in which Farrah told OK! Magazine that Michael is a “horrible person” and that she understands why his daughter Lindsay “has her issues.”
“It’s sad that Lindsay has to deal with that,” Farrah stated.
“As for my children, I don’t think she’s in any position to judge me,” Michael continues. “I have a wonderful relationship with all my children and the reason it was strained at times was because I went through a divorce after 19 years of a good marriage. I don’t think Farah is in a position to even go near that.”
According to Michael, he’s not the only one who didn’t get along with Farrah at The Lukens Institute. He says no one liked her.
“Farrah got along with nobody,” Michael revealed. “I feel bad for her. As I told her. Dr Lukens, Dr Kelly and I l did so much for her problems, but as a human being it will take a lot more than therapy.”
Farrah entered the facility for treatment but wasn’t able to stay for the entirety of the ten-day program because of what was reported as her “disruptive” behavior but Farrah says she wasn’t disruptive at all and that her “bi*ch” manager, who also represents Michael, lied about the situation. Michael doubts that was the case.
“She was the one who screwed her own manager who had helped her get out that dark ‘hole’ she was in. The manager never screwed me or anyone I know, but I know she sure got screwed by Farrah. As did I.”
As we venture deeper into True Blood‘s sixth season — we are officially half-way through it, in case you weren’t aware — Truebies everywhere have one burning question on their collective brain: Which major character is heading for the grave? HollywoodLife.com chatted with Michael McMillian, who plays the lovable (former) reverend Steve Newlin, for his take on the upcoming death; and he assured us it’s going to be devastating.
“I obviously can’t say who it is, but I was definitely surprised when I found out,” Michael admitted, adding that the shocking death “changes the tone of the show” entirely.
Um… that‘s not comforting!
Ever since showrunner Brian Buckner revealed that “one of the principal characters will not make it all the way through the season,” fans have speculated which vampire will meet his (or her) true death. That is, if it’s a vampire at all.
As for Steve, who I assume is not the major character being killed off, season six is very much about reflecting on the past – particularly on past mistakes.
“The important thing to remember, and what I think is actually really cool, is that all of this is Steve’s fault,” Michael says. “He and Sarah came up with these camps together back in the Fellowship of the Sun, and now he’s become a victim of his own creation.”
Speaking of Sarah (Anna Camp), Michael says he was thrilled to reunite with his former on-screen wife
“There’s so much to work out between them, considering everything they’ve gone through as a couple,” Michael acknowledges. “And I actually think fans will be really surprised by the way they interact with each other. It won’t go down the way you might expect.”
We got our first taste of their surprising interaction this past week when Steve assisted Sarah at vamp camp, and if I know Steve and Sarah the way I think I do, it’s only going to get weirder from here.
Okay, since ppl apparently cannot read. This is the description for the episode that will air in TWO WEEKS. Meaning, it happens after the major death.

Netflix’s ‘‘House of Cards’’ made Emmy history Thursday with a top drama series nomination, the first time that television’s leading awards have recognized a program delivered online as equal in quality to the best that TV has to offer.
The nomination, one of nine nods earned by the political thriller, is a marker in the unfolding revolution in how we receive and watch video entertainment.
‘‘It’s really groundbreaking,’’ said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix. ‘‘It’s beyond our most bold expectations. We were thinking a single nomination would be a win... It’s as much a win for Internet television as it is for the content creators.’’
The most Emmy nominations, 17, went to miniseries ‘‘American Horror Story: Asylum.’’ Close behind was ‘‘Game of Thrones’’ with 16 nods, while ‘‘Saturday Night Live’’ and the Liberace biopic ‘‘Behind the Candelabra’’ earned 15 nominations each, including nods for stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.
The bonanza of nominations for ‘‘Game of Thrones’’ is the swords-and-fantasy show’s most-ever and includes a best drama series nod and three acting bids, including one for Peter Dinklage.
‘‘House of Cards’’ stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright received acting bids, along with a number of other primarily big-screen actors who have migrated to TV for powerhouse projects, with Douglas and Damon among them.
Joining ‘‘House of Cards’’ and ‘‘Game of Thrones’’ in the best drama series category are ‘‘Breaking Bad,’’ ‘'Downton Abbey,’’ ‘'Mad Men’’ and last year’s winner, ‘‘Homeland.’’
‘‘Mad Men,’’ which last year missed out on the best drama trophy that would have been its record-setting fifth, eclipsing fellow four-time winners ‘‘Hill Street Blues,’’ ‘'L.A. Law’’ and ‘‘The West Wing,’’ gets another shot this year.
‘‘Mad Men’’ and its creator failed to receive any writing nominations for the first time in the series’ six-year history.
The major broadcast networks were shut out of the prestigious drama series category, a repeat of last year and a particular blow with the entry of Netflix’s streamed drama. ‘‘Boardwalk Empire’’ was the only show not to return in the category, its spot claimed by ‘‘House of Cards.’’
More of the article (just talking about all the nominations) here @ the source.
I really just wanted an excuse to talk about House of Cards. I posted about it a few times on here in comments but I was casted as an extra last Thursday for HOC and got to see the filming in action. Even though I can't disclose what I saw, it was an amazing experience and Kevin Spacey continues to blow my mind! If you haven't checked the show out yet, do it ASAP! It deserves all the awards!
After a four-year gap since their last album, many fans have been left ‘jonesing’ for some Jonas, but all that ends when their new album V, in honour of their fifth studio release drops later this fall. Joining us in our ET Canada studio, Joe Jonas tells Rick Campanelli the group’s new music is worth the wait: “We went in studio originally and we felt like it wasn't right. So we looked at each other and said maybe we should take a little bit more time. We ended up getting back in the studio six months later and something clicked.”
It’s not just time that enriches their music, it’s also life experiences and that’s all part of their new winning formula. “I think it’s important to live a little, make some babies… live a little bit of life prior to writing about it,”says Kevin Jonas, who just announced last week he and his wife Danielle are expecting their first child.
So what’s in store for the little Jonas on-the-way? Kevin’s siblings say he’ll make a wonderful dad, but will probably be a bit of a pushover. “He’s going to spoil the kid for sure,” says Nick. While Joe adds, “if it’s a girl, it’s a wrap. She’ll actually live in the Disney castle.”
Speaking of Disney, they aren’t the only stars from the network to go from child actor to superstar. Miley Cyrus is also making waves with her edgier music this year, and Nick who dated the former Hannah Montana star says he couldn't be more happy for his ex. “It’s great to see that she can continue to be successful and make the kind of music she wants to make,” he says. “It’s really interesting right now. If you look at who are on top of the pop charts right now, you've got Miley, Demi and Selena and we’re happy to be back on our game.”
Of course being together on tour for so long means there’s bound to be some bickering between bros! And tonight they dish about sibling rivalry on ET Canada starting at 7:30 ET/PT.

Square Enix has revealed a new trailer for Lightning Returns to coincide with San Diego Comic Con this weekend, featuring all-new gameplay footage and event scenes. The theme of this trailer expands on the game’s final thirteen days before destruction, and Lightning’s mission as the Savior.
Below: New Lightning Returns screenshots introduce the city of revelry, Yusnaan
Square Enix has just unleashed a slew of new screenshots and media for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, showing off the game in action to celebrate its playable appearance at this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con.
The screenshots introduces fans to the city of revelry, Yusnaan, revealing the Slaughterhouse, a brutal arena where battles are held nightly and the station, a deserted, forgotten area within the city’s warehouse district.
Also shown off in the new shots is more on the battle system, including a demonstration on how in battle Lightning can target and destroy specific sections of an enemy. Through this enemies can be weakened, and additional post-battle awards can be unlocked. Also on show is Counterblow, Lightning’s new counter-attack move. Though powerful, the move drains much of the ATB meter, so it must be used sparingly!

Someone is leaking personal pictures of Madonna in her closet trying on different outfits she wore during the MDNA era.
Those implants and those poses combined make her look like a Rob Liefeld drawing come to life...
A group of staunch Paula Deen fans are venting their displeasure at the retailers and networks that dropped her by buttering them up.
A campaign dubbed “Butter for Paula’’ is encouraging Deen supporters to mail cleaned and folded butter wrappers to companies like Food Network, Home Depot and Walgreens, in protest over their decisions to sever ties with the celebrity chef in the controversy involving her admission of her past use of racial slurs.
Butter is one of Deen’s trademark ingredients, and the campaign argues that “a company without Paula is like a wrapper without butter.” The wrappers symbolize that her supporters are sticking with her. The campaign has been organized by John Schmitt, a hotel auditor in Indianapolis. Schmitt also started a Facebook page called “We support Paula Deen” on June 21 that has garnered more than 600,000 “likes.”
The senders of the protest butter wrappers are encouraged to include their own note or one from the campaign's site that reads in part, “We’re ashamed and outraged at the media’s careless and negligent handling and reporting which has caused pain and devastation in so many innocent lives.” The message then asks for Food Network to restore her contract and for retailers to again stock her product lines.
"Based on hours of research and consultation with experts, we’ve come to the conclusion that Paula Deen was unjustly vilified by a carefully calculated media smear campaign,'' the site reads.
Deen has been embroiled in scandal after she admitted using racial slurs, a detail that came to light after a May 17 deposition transcript was leaked. Deen and her brother Earl "Bubba" Heirs are being sued by a former manager of one of Deen's restaurants over their allegedly discriminatory behavior toward their employees.
A dozen companies ended up severing their ties with Deen, who responded by firing her legal team and hiring a new set of lawyers.
Pop star Rihanna was left furious during her gig in Manchester, England on Tuesday night when fans started pelting her with food.
The Umbrella hitmaker took to the stage at the city's M.E.N Arena as part of her Diamonds world tour, but was forced to stop the show after her performance of Rude Boy as several revellers began hurling snacks.
The irate singer told the audience, "This is next level, there is a good crazy and there is a bad crazy, but when you throw s**t up here, that's an epic fail. I swear to God, cut that s**t out. Really? Chips? Chips, though - it's that important? Ok Manchester, for those of you who want to (get) jiggy and have a good f**king time, say my name!"
Rihanna is not the only superstar to scold her fans during a recent concert - Beyonce chastised a gig-goer at a show in Atlanta, Georgia last week for filming her on a cell phone instead of singing along to her track Irreplaceable.
heffa needed that umbrella
Britney Spears will announce in several weeks her Vegas deal we told you about 2 months ago ... and as it was put to us, "It's not your father's Shania Twain concert."
Sources connected with the deal tell us ... Britney will bring a "cool, hip club-like show" to Planet Hollywood. We're told it will NOT feel like a run-of-the-mill concert -- the vibe is very different. And the show will change on a fairly regular basis.
We're told the deal also includes appearances Britney will make at various pool parties, as well as the Planet Hollywood nightclub.
BTW ... there are reports Britney talked to the judge in her conservatorship case about her upcoming Vegas shows. Not true. Our sources -- and they are extremely reliable -- say not a word was mentioned. The judge has long been down with the show.
It's official, people: we don't call him Jay-Z anymore. Nah. It's strictly Jay Z.
Yup, that's right, Jay-Z has officially dropped the hyphen in his name. So it's no longer Jay-Z. It's Jay Z.
Got it? Good.
Joe Levy, the editor of Billboard magazine, tweeted out the news:
"Breaking: Jay Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. (Wish I was.) Copy editors: take note.
Billboard was quick to enforce the new policy. In the story this morning they did about the Legends of Summer tour, they listed Jay Z.
If you had a keen eye for such things, you could see this move coming. In Magna Carta...Holy Grail there's a song called "Jay Z Blue."
So there you have it. Now excuse us while we go in our archives and change every Jay-Z to Jay Z #Notreally.
+ Who Was Spotted At Beyonce's Latest Concert?
American royal Michelle Obama and her two daughters were spotted at Bey's concert in Chicago. She had been in town earlier in the day to speak about school career programs.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost interviewed by Nick Grimshaw in a pub, because the World's End is about a pub crawl.
They talk about pubs, obviously.
Pegg & Frost have been friends for about 20 years.
Simon broke his hand filming The World's End. Nick broke his hand filming Paul.
Enter frame: PUPPY!! from 06:55 to 07:30
Simon used to put the Simpsons on to go to sleep.
Simon's top 3 comedy films: Spinal Tap, Life of Brian, Airplane
PUPPY! At 02:32-02:38 and 03:20-03:27
Best comedy films have a strong story as well as jokes.
They're not fans of the "just another...." comedy films, call them not even jokes, just torture.
Nick's parents drank a lot when he was a kid so he was allowed to watch many horror films.
The structure of film making has changed so you can't expect to get paid exponentially more for every sequel anymore.

What is that hair, Simon? :lol:
Also, GRIMSHAW. Talking about yourself does not equate to interviewing. Leave that to Chris Stark.
