'Breatharian' believes she can live off 'cosmic micro-food' of just light and air.
- Valeria Lukyanova, 23, has reportedly got slimmer due to not eating
- Has converted to Breatharianism - someone who never eats or drinks
- Model with doll-like proportions has 994,000 likes on her Facebook page
- Sees being a living Barbie as the ultimate embodiment of perfection
- Other unusual statements include that she can time travel and talk to aliens
Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova, who lives her life as a 'human Barbie' has revealed she doesn't consume food or water anymore.
Some have said she uses plastic surgery and Photoshop to create her doll-like image, but her impossibly thin waist could actually be down to not eating for weeks.
The model, 23, has said she is now converting to 'Breatharianism' - training herself to live off only light and air.
'In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,' she has said.
The model and singer's new vice, Breatharianism, is a cult that believes food - and possibly water - are not necessary.
A breatharian is said to be someone who never eats or drinks as they can exist on 'cosmic micro-food', according to the International Business Times.
The practice is criticised as potentially lethal pseudoscience, and several practitioners have reportedly died of starvation. None have submitted themselves for comprehensive medical testing.
With her pinched waist, skeletal arms, enormous coloured contact lenses, thick make-up and vacant expression, Valeria believes she has become a living, breathing Barbie - something she sees as the ultimate embodiment of perfection.
She has courted international controversy by turning herself into a human doll, confessing she wishes to be considered 'the most perfect woman on the internet'. Based on the photos on her social media accounts, Valeria is sporting an increasingly thin frame.
This is not the first time that Valeria declared something unusual.
She has said that she is a spiritual teacher and can speak with aliens through light, she thinks that has the ability to time travel and has had out-of-body experiences.
A VICE filmmaker travelled to Ukraine last summer to meet her. Valeria agreed to a documentary which focused on her spiritual and astral theories, and her views on pre-Earth space.
She revealed she believes she is from another planet - possibly Venus, but she isn't quite sure - but is adamant she isn't human. Valeria revealed has visited a psychiatrist about the voices in her head.
While she says she has become the object of hatred within some internet communities, away from YouTube and Tumblr, Valeria works in new age opera, while being supported by her construction-working husband who also acts as her manager.
'Game Of Thrones': What's Next For The Stark Girls?
By JOLIE LASH
Times are tough for the Stark daughters in “Game of Thrones” Season 4, and Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, said to expect some big changes for Arya and Sansa.
“Arya is in a much darker place and I think we see a little glimpse of that in [Season 3,] Episode 10, but moving into the premiere of the new season, I feel like Arya… she doesn’t have a direction anymore,” Maisie said about where Arya begins the new season.
“She’s given up on trying to look for family,” Maisie continued, speaking to Access Hollywood at the “Game of Thrones” Season 4 premiere at Lincoln Center on Tuesday night in NYC.“She’s given up on trying to control her future. I feel like this year [she] feels nothing.”
Arya remains with Sandor Clegane/The Hound/The King’s Dog (Rory McCann), who had planned to bring her to her brother and mother at the Twins, where he hoped to trade her for a cash prize, until The Red Wedding happened. In Season 4, they are still together, Rory told Access.
“My character’s on a great road trip with Arya and it’s gonna be crazy this year,” he said.
Maisie also promised more shocks from the regularly shocking (for those who haven’t read George R.R. Martin’s books) show.
“If you thought like the end of last year was tough or shocking, you’re not gonna be able to handle the new season. Like, that’s honest,” Maisie said.
A prisoner of sorts at King’s Landing, Sansa remains married to Tyrion Lannister and she is grieving Robb and Catelyn’s loss as the new season opens on April 6 at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO.
“As the series begins, she’s pretty much the same old Sansa. She’s depressed,” Sophie told Access. “Her mum and brother have died – like, there’s no getting over that.”
Sophie did tease that Sansa won’t stay heartbroken forever.
“But then, as the series progresses, she becomes a lot stronger and she becomes very kind of manipulative. Sneaky. Yeah, sneaky Sansa,” Sophie said.
And Sophie too promised more dramatic bombshells.
“There are perhaps more giant shocks this year than there have been on any other [season],” she said.
“Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security,” Sophie said when Access asked her for her advice to fans gearing up to watch the show. “Not that ‘Game of Thrones’ does that anyway, but, ‘Valar Morghulis!’ All men must die!’ Just saying.”
The only reason I'm inclined to believe what Sophie is saying this time around (because lbr girlfriend sold the hell out of her storyline last season and it didn't really pan out that way, lol) is because Kit says in this interview that Sansa "starts to fight back a bit" this season:
I just got back from the screening at Barclays, and imo, this was the best premiere episode since the first season. I'll answer questions if you have them, but please please please be mindful of using spoiler tags.
True Blood actress Amelia Rose Blaire looks forward to what's to come on the HBO vampire series, as the show’s final season will kick off in June. Blaire, who plays Willa on the show, dished on the final season and working with series favorite, Alexander Skarsgard, in an exclusive interview with Uinterview.
Blaire’s most memorable scene from the last season of True Blood was likely when Eric Northman (Skarsgard) turned her into a vampire. The process, according to Blaire was long and arduous, requiring multiple takes because of all the faux blood involved. The big question for the character is whether or not she’ll regret letting Eric make her into a vampire.
“I don’t know if she's going to regret being turned,” admitted Blaire. “But I definitely think that’s she's going to be going through some emotional journey having to deal with the repercussions of what happened last season.”
Working with Skarsgard was something of a coup for Blaire, as he was not only nice too look at, but provided some humor to their scenes together. Asked to describe the statuesque Swedish actor, Blaire called him “goofy.”
“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes,” she told Uinterview. “So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he's very, very tall. He's like 6’5” or something, so he's definitely a figure to behold, but he's really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”
Although Blaire’s not certain about what will become of her character in True Blood’s final season, she believes that the show itself will end in typical True Blood fashion. “The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time,” the actress revealed. “Because that’s what True Blood does best.”
I can reveal that the play about the troubled Dane will begin performances in August next year at London’s Barbican Theatre.
It had been hoped that Cumberbatch’s Hamlet would run this year, but we’ll have to wait — mainly because of a paucity of appropriate venues, but also thanks to the packed schedules of Cumberbatch and Hamlet’s director Lyndsey Turner.
The show will be the centrepiece of the Barbican’s 2015 season.
When approached on the matter, Hamlet producer Sonia Friedman said: ‘I can confirm that we are in final negotiations with the Barbican,’ but she declined to comment further.
However, others associated with the production told me Cumberbatch was better able to clear a big chunk of time in 2015 — he has agreed to commit to a 12-week run in the Barbican, and at least six weeks of preparation and rehearsal time.
Cumberbatch will also meet periodically with director Turner to work out how to approach the Bard’s landmark drama, which is seen as a test of an actor’s stage ability.
The 1,166-seat Barbican Theatre is big enough to house Cumberbatch’s growing fan-base, which has exploded since the success of Sherlock on BBC TV and the star’s appearances in blockbuster movies such as Star Trek: Into Darkness, August: Osage County and the Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave.
He last appeared on stage at the National Theatre in Frankenstein, directed by Danny Boyle.
Cumberbatch has a major movie coming out in the Autumn called The Imitation Game, which is expected to figure in the next awards season.
He portrays the World War II code-breaking mastermind Alan Turing, while Keira Knightley portrays one of his Bletchley Park colleagues.

British director Craig Viveiros has come on board to helm Ellen Page in spy thriller “Queen & Country” for Chernin Entertainment at Fox.
The project, based on the Oni Press comic book series “Queen and Country” by Greg Rucka, centers on a British agent Tara Chace going on the run from her own people as she tries to bring down a terrorist on English soil.
Variety reported in September that Page was attached.
Peter Chernin is producing through his Chernin Entertainment banner, along with Jenno Topping. John Rogers is penning the script.
Viveiros began his directing career making shorts and commercials and helmed the short film “Back To Back.” He also produced, wrote and directed his debut feature film “Ghosted” starring Art Malik, John Lynch and Martin Compston.
Viveiros then moved to Haiti to work as a volunteer at the country’s film institute and returned to England to make “The Liability,” starring Tim Roth, Peter Mullan and Jack O’Connell.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Fox and Ellen in the task of bringing Tara Chace and ‘Queen & Country’ to life on the big screen,” Viveiros said. “The echoes of excitement in creating an exciting, unique bold addition the spy genre are held firm by Greg’s solid, riveting source material.”
Page will next be seen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Viveiros is repped by WME, United Agents and Felker Toczek Suddleson.

Disney's hit animated feature Frozen follows the story of two sisters—the older of which is able to wield snow and ice. Then, suddenly, that sister's personality changes for the worse, and the younger sister tries to save the day. Sound familiar?
The official line is that Frozen is based on The Snow Queen. That isn't too surprising, as many Disney animated features are also based on Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales, but Frozen differs greatly from The Snow Queen.
On 2ch, Japan's largest online forum, and Twitter, some commenters (not all!) are pointing out that elements of Frozen very much resemble the mid-1980s Saint Seiya anime, in particular the two Saint Seiya characters Freya and her elder sister Polaris Hilda. However, the similarities were, perhaps, noted in a much more positive light by Tumblr user Anni-Thii last year.
This latest fuss sounds a bit like a stretch, but hey, let's see what it's all about.
Above on the right, you can see Freya from Saint Seiya. Note the physical similarities between her and Anna from Frozen—notably the light-colored hair, the ponytails, and the pink outfits. Wait, their hair isn't the same color. Anyway, continue.
Both are the young sibling and want to save their sisters, and as Anni-Thii points out, their kingdoms. Neither characters have special powers.
Here, also on the right, is Polaris Hilda. Like Elsa, she is an older sister. And like Elsa, she has supernatural ice powers and used to be kind until she takes a turn for the worse.
Some online in Japan are saying that she resembles Elsa. That might be a bit of an overstatement, but see for yourself.
Here is an early design for the Elsa character 2ch points to (originally, it appeared on Pavementmouse). Compare to it to Polaris Hilda.
As noted online in Japan, there are some similar plot points: There is a love triangle (of sorts!) with both younger sisters—with both featuring a handsome man who came from the outside.
Frozen recently opened in Japan, and Twitter users have been drawing the above comparisons, with some of the most hardcore anime fans calling Frozen an outright ripoff. Not everyone in Japan feels this way, as there are those who say the Frozen and the Saint Seiya characters are totally different. Not everyone knows the Saint Seiya anime and not everyone gives a flip.
On 2ch, one net user pointed out that Disney has allegedly copied other anime in the past: The Great Mouse Detective seems to copy Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro, Atlantis: The Lost Kingdom apparently rips off Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, and Treasure Planet supposedly copies 21 Emon.
Of course, that list didn't include The Lion King and its alleged source material, Kimba The White Lion.
Considering how there are several Disney films that seem similar to well-known anime, people in Japan might be quick to lump Frozen in as well. While Disney and Disney films are very popular in Japan, there are, like anywhere, haters.
Or, maybe, Frozen was inspired by Saint Seiya. That wouldn't be a bad thing necessarily, as artists are inspired by others all the time. By "inspired," I also mean that they rip each other off constantly. But was that the case with Frozen? Eh, let it go.
Remember, I will be answering questions on reddit tomorrow eve! Join me! pic.twitter.com/lvrUgxAJy8— Alexander William (@AlexAllTimeLow) March 20, 2014
All Time Low singer/songwriter/guitarist Alex Gaskarth took some time on the band's day off in Glasgow, Scotland to do his first ever Reddit AMA on r/Music. (Drummer/Ultimate Cassadee Pope fangirl Rian Dawson has done two or three). Gaskarth talks about the band's inspirations, alcohol, Game of Thrones/Doctor Who, and sex in the AMA, which got almost 1700 comments and questions.
Question: Will you serenade my girlfriend and I while we have sex?
Edit: You could give us a "Backseat Serenade"
Alex: Sure. I'll be over soon to penetrate you both with sensual sounds.
1.Who's your biggest songwriting influence, and why?
2.What's your songwriting process like? Is it sporadic, do you sit down and force yourself to write something every once in a while, do you have a theme or feel with each album that you go for, etc. (Pretty open ended question I guess).
3.In your opinion, the best song you've ever written?
1.Dave Grohl and Butch Walker. They are two of the most diverse and talented writers out there.
2.It can be fairly sporadic. I find that inspiration can hit at any time, anywhere (like diarrhea,) so it helps to be able to quickly hum something into my phone, or scribble down a lyric on the go. When it comes to actually writing a song, I usually have to lock myself away and really focus one putting something cohesive together.
3.I think "Guts" is the song I'm most proud of.
Question: What happens to all the bras after the concert ends?
Alex: Usually they get thrown out, but it always seems like a waste, so I've started wearing them occasionally.
In all seriousness, we did actually collect them over the course of a tour once, and donated the monetary equivalent to a breast cancer foundation when we totaled them all up at the end.
Question: How many women do you (on average) sleep with per night?
Alex: When my girlfriend is on tour with me, I sleep with an average of about one girl per night.
When she's not, I masturbate furiously into a sock.
Question: How does it feel playing songs from the eras of So Wrong It's Right and Put Up Or Shut Up? What goes through your head when you sing such old lyrics?
Alex: It's awesome that the songs have lasted, and continue to make an impact in our live shows. So many fond memories attached to those songs. When a crowd goes off for any song, be it new or old, it's an incredibly rewarding experience.
Question: So uh how many times have you seen Jack's penis?
Alex: More times than I'd like to admit. :(
Question: I thought this was the guy from Trueblood at first.
Alex: I wish. :(
Question: Do you like hearing yourself sing, or do you cringe? Your voice is incredible I love you.
Alex: I don't think anyone loves the sound of their own voice. I'm happy with what I've been able to accomplish as a singer, but then there's always Freddie Mercury.
Question: What's up Alex? A couple questions for ya: 1. What are your favorite and least favorite cities to go to? Spinoff: what city has grown on you that you never really liked going to? 2. Would you rather a) have shots sent up on stage or b) have a massive joint thrown randomly on stage. (Stipulation: the set isn't interrupted or disturbed in any way with either of these events.)
1.Favorite city is Osaka, Japan. Least favorite, probably New York (Manhattan, specifically.) Paris has really grown on me over the years.
2.Shots! I don't really smoke because it totally wrecks my voice.
Question: I'm super late but I just wanted to tell you that I have the swir girls tattooed on me and your music is wonderful. With that said, what is the weirdest thing a fan has ever given/showed you.
Alex: That's rad!
A guy actually whipped his balls out at a meet and greet once, asking us to sign them. Kinda forward, but I admire his... balls.
Question: Why do you not play good punk?
Alex: I was genetically engineered by Chinese scientists specifically to piss you off, so...
Question: Hi! I've listened to a few of your albums, and only liked what I heard. Im not that into music, but my sister is probably one of you biggest fan(girl)s, I think you even talked to her on twitter a few times(she basically had a siezure in front of me, mouth foam and everything). What do you think of extreme fans, especially if you've ever met one in real life?
Alex: Hey! Good to hear from you. Thanks for giving our music a shot!
Sometimes people forget that the people they see on TV, the web, music videos, etc. are human beings, just the same as them. It's always a little overwhelming to deal with people who are just losing their shit, but at the same time, it's really flattering and you've got to just kind of go with it.
I hope your sister recovers soon. :)
Question: I was wondering how you keep so energetic and happy during and after a show. I know it's a lot to deal with and i want to know how you handle it all
Alex: A shit ton of cocaine and meth.
Question: Alex, what are your thoughts on fan tattoos? especially handwritten stuff?
Alex: Hey, it's your body!
I sometimes get weirded out when someone asks me to "draw" something for them to have tattooed. I am NOT an artist by any means, and I'd feel horrible if someone actually defaced themselves with a wonky heart I scribbled or something. Haha!
Question: What is the song (or songs) you are most proud of writing?
Have you ever felt like you missed out on the college experience or any similar rites of passage while you guys were off touring the world?
Pick three people you've interacted with in the past 24 hours who you'd have on your team during a bar fight.
And finally, what is the most horrifying sight you have ever seen on tour? Disgusting, weird or plain fucked up, whatever you feel fits the description.
1.I'm extremely proud of songs like Weightless, The Reckless and The Brave and Therapy-- Songs that people say have helped them in some way. I never thought that our music would have any sort of profound effect on people when I started writing, so it's extremely rewarding to hear that from time to time.
2.Don't really feel like I missed out on college; I really didn't enjoy high-school, and I feel as though it would have been a similar situation had I gone on to do further schooling.
3.Rian (our drummer), Vinny (our merch guy), and the lady at my hotel's reception desk, (she looked like she could throw down.)
4.Bus on the Warped Tour hit a deer and completely exploded (red mist) the thing all over the highway. Gross.
Question: Do you ever get annoyed by people who assume or fabricate things about your life?
Alex: It can definitely be frustrating, but at the end of the day, people will think what they want to think. I know who I am, and those I'm close with / care about do too; That's really all that matters.
Question: What is the ultimate goal for All Time Low, you guys have been quite successful for the past 11 years, but what is you goal for the next 11?
Alex: Continue to grow as a band, and as people. We're always looking to try new things and push our sound a little here and there, without completely abandoning what we've done all along.
Question: How many pool balls can you fit in your mouth?
Alex: All of 'em, after I crush them into a fine powder and add milk.
Question: Hey dude! Always wondered when you'd do an AMA. You guys have a pretty enthusiastic fanbase, and I use that term lightly. I should know, I guess. As you get more and more popular, do you ever wish you could sacrifice a little of it for the past anonymity?
Alex: Hi! The time is now!
Our fan base is definitely nuts, but also extremely supportive and fun. I don't really miss anonymity, but I am sometimes a little caught off guard by people who forget that we're just like them at the end of the day.
Question: Saw you in Birmingham last week, gotta say it was the best All Time Low gig so far! What's your favourite song to perform live?
Alex: I've been loving So Long Soldier. We just started playing it live, and it's a banger!
Question: Can you wait to respond to this comment until you're too drunk?
Alex: Starting to feel a bit buzzed. Is this the right time to reach out? Can we be friends or should I come back after a few more?
Question: How does is feel to have ridiculous amounts of underage girls doing things like writing creepy sexual fan-fiction about you and throwing bras on stage? I've wondered this at all your shows.
Alex: The creepy stuff is secondary to pretty much EVERYTHING else. We just ignore it. Kinda goes with the territory, I guess. The bra throwing was a joke that started a long time ago, and snowballed from there when we started making jokes about it on stage. At this point we embrace it for kicks alone. :)
1.Why is your twitter background Captain Planet? Are you a fucking hippie?
2.What is one question that you're incredibly tired of hearing from fans/in interviews?
3.Recently some fans have been upset because in Europe someone tried to give you their razor that they had used in the past to self-harm. (It's understandable for you guys to not accept it because of the risk of injury to yourselves) What are your feelings on this situation?
1.What's not to love about the planet, and green mullets?
2.It can get pretty frustrating when questions don't really have anything to do with the band or our music.
3.I don't know when this trend of giving bands razor blades started, but it really bums me out. Self harm is horrible, and this behavior kind of glorifies it in a really strange way. Aside from the obvious reasons of not handing someone an exposed blade at a table signing, I refuse to take them because I'd rather the person just throw it out and be done with the whole thing. Self mutilation is not some cutesy joke, or a moment to share with a group of complete strangers-- it's a sign of serious underlying problems, and those issues need to be talked through with someone who's trained to do so.
1) You guys are basically living the dream right now. Four best friends from high school with a common passion. So many people try to attempt this but very few succeed. How does it feel to achieve this? Where do you see your band in the next few years? If you could be doing anything else at all, what would that be?
2) You guys have been on tour basically nonstop for years now. I always expect to see you guys come by Atlanta every fall and every spring, and you guys are always doing something during Summer, whether it be a foreign tour, Warped Tour, festivals, etc. How has your amazing tour ethic and experienced changed your life? Do you guys find "normal" non-touring life boring now? I know you've said that your current US Tour is going to be your last one for a while. Are you guys going to do anything special with the downtime or are you just going to focus on something else?
3) What is your favorite venue of all time? Who is your favorite band to tour with? And what is your favorite city to play at?
4) You guys grew up listening to bands like Yellowcard, and I've heard they had a large influence on the type of music you wanted to create. What is it like now, after you guys have made it big, to be such close friends with bands like Yellowcard and people like Mark Hoppus, who you grew up listening to?
5) Not a question, but I played Halo: Reach with you guys onetime and it was probably one of the highlights of my life. You guys should definitely do something like that again.
6) What is your honest opinion of the music scene associated with your genre? (The pop/punk, pop/rock, whatever you want to call it scene?)
1.We've been very lucky, and we've worked our asses off to get to where we are today. It's incredibly satisfying to see the hard work and time spent actually pay off. This is our livelihood now, so to be able to support ourselves at this point is amazing.
2.Touring has really been the cornerstone of this band's success. Our shows keep us going, and it's a major part of our income, (Record sales are not what they used to be, etc, etc.) That said, time at home with friends and family almost feels that much more rewarding, because we've created a lifestyle where we've really got to make the most of every moment, touring or not.
3.I absolutely love the Brixton Academy in London.
4.Getting to know some of the guys / gals we look up to has been a dream come true, honestly. So many good people out there, and it's inspiring to see that they all came from the same, humble beginnings that we did.
5.Did I teabag you?
6.It's vicious and a bit petty, but it's also made us who/what we are today. Love it like a sister.
1) Is there any song that you wish you could stop playing live but can't because of the demand?
2) How much control do you guys have over ticket prices of your shows (especially shows overseas)?
3) What's your favorite beer?
4) Who do you think will sit on the Iron Throne in the end?
5) Favourite Doctor?
1.I think we're all a bit sick of playing Coffee Shop Soundtrack live, but honestly, if the crowd's enjoying it, we are too.
2.Ticket prices are typically negotiated and agreed upon by the promoters and our booking agent; We're never directly involved. We try to keep ticket prices as low as we possibly can, but there's a lot that goes into putting on a show, especially so far from home, so expenses go up and so do ticket prices.
3.Loving Full Tilt brewers in Baltimore at the moment.
4.If it ain't a Stark, I ain't interested. Team Stark.
Question: Who would you consider your greatest musical influences? And where is your favourite place to play?
Big fan, heard great things about your Irish show.
Alex: This is a really tough question to answer, because I was inspired by so many different artists and genres. Blink and Green Day got me into the kind of music that we play, but beyond that, I'd say I was molded by The Beatles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Nirvana and Genesis.
Ireland was insane! Can't wait to come back.
Question: What music have you been listening to lately? any particular albums you like listening to on the road?
Alex: I never stop listening to Foo Fighters. Recently I've been listening to a lot of .letlive, Wonder Years, I Am The Avalanche, Taking Back Sunday and Bayside. All of 'em have really solid new records.
1.What was the inspiration behind Jasey Rae?
2.What is your favorite drink?
1.Jasey Rae is a girl from Altoona, PA. We used to play these tiny VFW and Church halls, and she was a girl I had a crush on for a short period of time. Back then, every crush feels like a big deal, and her name happened to sing really well!
Question: Craziest tour story? I'd imagine you and the rest of the band get up to some ridiculous shit. EDIT: Also, what is your favorite cheap beer, expensive beer, mixed drink and shot?
Alex: At this point there are almost too many to list, but one that stands out involves Jack's birthday, a hotel in Pittsburgh, a bottle of cheap tequila, and me marching through the front lobby in nothing but a hand towel, with a flat-screen TV hoisted above my head. We are not allowed back at that hotel. :(
Cheap Beer: Natty Boh (Gotta rep the home town) Expensive / Nicer Beer: Allagash White Mixed Drink: Jameson and Ginger Shot: Jameson
1.Has the band (or management) ever thought about releasing a so-called "official tab book"? When I was younger and had just started playing guitar, books like these helped me tremendously and since I'm kind of a perfectionist, I like to play songs just like band plays them on album, not use a tab that may or may not be totally correct. For example, Dirty Work has been out for 3 years this summer and there are literally zero decent tabs for songs like That Girl or Bad Enough For You.
2.Okay, real talk. What is the deal with Jack's guitar and mic during live performances? I have seen you guys live a couple of times and there have been some strange moments when I'm pretty sure his guitar and mic are turned off but then a couple of seconds later you can hear him playing again.
3.Is there a chance we ever get to hear songs from the second half of Dirty Work, that have never been played live, performed?
4.Has Danny ever dropped your (or Jack’s) guitar while trying to catch it during Dear Maria?
1.I'll be honest, in all the years we've been a band, I don't think we ever actually talked about releasing a tab book. I'm not sure what companies were responsible for putting those out in the past, for other bands, but I certainly had a few back in the day... Learned to play most of Metallica's Black Album that way! Making a note to look into it!
2.Jack's guitar is always on. He's not always playing it, but it's always on. Haha! As for his mic, I think maybe sometimes our sound guys have pulled him down during songs, because he has a tendency to just yell along like a deaf chimp. His mic is there more for banter than actual singing. Zack has always been the harmony guy live. :)
3.I'd like to think so. We're always changing up our set, so hopefully we'll get around to adding some of the deeper cuts into our show down the line.
4.We've had several incidents where guitars were dropped, thrown badly, etc. Once, my guitar actually connected with Danny's forehead before his hands. Nothing a trip to the hospital didn't fix! Yeaaa... That was bad.
All Time Low remains better than your faves.
Adding yet another film to his increasingly long list of film credits, come news that Anthony Mackie will now join Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul and Casey Affleck in the new police crime thriller Triple Nine, which we reported about last month, and which will be directed by John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road, The Proposal).
The film, written by Matt Cook, tells the story of a group of corrupt cops who plan a major heist.
The title comes from the police code “triple nine,” which is used when a police officer is in trouble and needs immediate help.
Open Road recently has come on board to handle the domestic theatrical distribution of the indie produced project which is being financed by Worldview Entertainment, Surefire and Sierra/Afinity.
Out Olympic heartthrob Tom Daley is back in the pool and back in the spotlight, though the topic of conversation hasn’t really strayed from his relationship with Dustin Lance Black.
The 19-year-old diving sensation did an interview with comedian James Corden for The Sun this week, where he says he came out in December because he was tired of people “questioning” his sexuality.
In what The Sun believes is “Tom Daley’s first interview since coming out,” which is just not true, Daley also reveals that “some people just come up and offer [sex] there and then.” We’re not surprised!
“Yeah, it does happen quite often,” he said, referring to men who unabashedly come on to him in public. “Some people come up to me and say, ‘Do you want to go back?’ And I’m like ‘What do you mean? The whole reason I did this was because I have a boyfriend.’”
Of his coming out video, Daley also said “I was at the point where I thought, ‘You know, who cares?’ I just didn’t want to feel I had to hide, or when I went out to dinner have to bring lots of people. It always had to be a group dinner.’”
We guess this means Tom and his beau don’t play with friends. Here’s hoping they at least play safe.
Have you ever been offered sex?
HBO has once again updated their schedule, revealing the title of the sixth episode of season four. Airing May 11th, the episode will be titled “The Laws of Gods and Men.”
This new title could have something to do with a trial we have seen throughout the trailers. What we know so far:
4.01 Two Swords
4.02 The Lion and the Rose
4.03 Breaker of Chains
4.05 First of His Name
4.06 The Laws of Gods and Men
Six down, only four more to go.
David Benioff and Dan Weiss sign on for two more seasons of Game of Thrones
Although HBO has not yet renewed the show for a fifth season, it’s safe to say Game of Thrones will remain on television until the Throne has been won, and David and Dan aren’t going anywhere. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo recently commented to EW that the pair are too valuable to let go, “I’ve read a lot of scripts. David and Dan are not just good, they are exceptional writers. Their scripts are as dazzling as anything I’ve ever read.”
David and Dan have already confirmed that they expect Thrones will wrap up after seven seasons. It’s likely that the pair, along with many of the actors who initially penned six year deals, will renegotiate their contracts to wrap things up.
So will the ending to George R.R. Martin’s saga be satisfying? Entertainment Weekly also got the scoop from David and Dan, who are among the only people on earth besides George R.R. Martin lucky enough to know the answer.
Benioff: “Absolutely yes.”
Weiss: “100 percent.”
Well......I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???— Sarah Michelle (@RealSMG) March 21, 2014
Esther Lee for Us Weekly writes:
Buffy the Kimye slayer! Sarah Michelle Gellar threw some serious shade at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's newly-revealed Vogue cover on Friday, March 21, shortly after the Anna Wintour-approved April issue spread was revealed.
"Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription," Gellar tweeted. "Who is with me???"
While many fans agreed with Gellar, the Crazy One star's comment also elicited a defensive quip from Kardashian's bestie, Jonathan Cheban. "Do u matter?" he said, retweeting Gellar.
Cheban, along with Kardashian's closest family and friends, celebrated the couple's fashion bible coup Friday afternoon. Vogue editor Wintour also defended her controversial choice to place the reality TV star and rapper on the issue's cover in her Editor's Letter.
"As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort," Wintour, also the creative director of Conde Nast, wrote.
"Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world's spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that."
Gellar, for her part, has never covered Vogue. The Cruel Intentions star, who rose to fame in the '90s along with fellow teen heartthrobs Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and husband Freddie Prinze, Jr., has fronted many other magazines in the past, including British Elle, Self, Allure, InStyle, and Seventeen.
ONTD, does Jonathan Cheban matter more than SMG?
