    Vice magazine co-founder Gavin McInnes ripped Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson during a Fox News appearance on Tuesday night, saying racial profiling against him during his youth was justified and knocking him for having white fans.

    “I hate this guy,” McInnes told host Greg Gutfeld and his panel. “I remember hearing Chris Hardwick on a podcast talk about Neil deGrasse Tyson and he was just salivating. White liberal nerds love this guy so much, he could defecate on them like Martin Bashir’s fantasies and they would dance in the streets.”

    Gutfeld and McInnes were apparently upset with deGrasse Tyson’s remark to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes last week that his “great fear” was that extraterrestrials had visited Earth and chose to leave “on the conclusion that there’s no sign of intelligent life on Earth.” DeGrasse Tyson also poked fun at the fact that, if there is life on other planets, their first impressions of our planet likely came from transmissions of old sitcoms like I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners.



    Gutfeld also scoffed at deGrasse Tyson’s background, referring to him as, “astrophysicist — yeah right.” In reality, deGrasse Tyson has earned a Bachelor of Arts in physics from Harvard University, a Master’s degree in astronomy from the University of Texas at Austin, a second Master’s degree in astrophysics from Columbia University, as well as a doctorate in astrophysics, also at Columbia.

    Media Matters reported that McInnes also appeared to criticize deGrasse Tyson for remarks he made during a 2009 panel discussion hosted by the Center of Inquiry regarding how he was constantly thrown “curveballs” during his youth because his choice of careers went against societal expectations regarding Black men.

    “He talks about things like, ‘when I was young in New York I would get racially profiled when I’d go into stores,’” McInnes complained. “Back then he looked like he was in The Warriors. He had a huge afro and a cutoff shirt and New York was a war zone. Sorry, you fit the profile.”

    Watch the discussion, as posted on Thursday by Media Matters, below.

    Yoko-Ono-Fashions-for-Men

    Yoko Ono will have to pay a Brooklyn designer who claimed the singer had ripped off her clothing designs.

    According to Page Six, Ono filed papers in a Brooklyn federal court agreeing to pay money to Haleh Nematzadeh for supposedly using her designs and passing them off as her own.

    Both sides have signed a confidentiality agreement prohibiting the involved parties tot talk about the settlement; as such, the amount of money is undisclosed.

    The settlement comes after Ono initially discounted Nematzadeh’s lawsuit, looking to get the court to nix it.

    The Brooklynite’s original suit alleged that Ono stole multiple fashion concepts from her; she said she was originally meeting with Ono’s camp for the singer to use some of Nematzadeh’s designs in 2012 but was eventually cut off from contact, prompting the suit.

    Lupita Nyong'o showed off her enviable beach body in a white Marysia bikini on the beach in Maui on Wednesday. The Oscar-winning actress accessorized with an oversize sun hat and belly chain and took a walk beside the waves before retreating to her lounge chair to relax. Lupita shared a photo of herself on Instagram the same day, saying, "Aloha Hawaii!"

    It's been a whirlwind few months for Lupita, who is in Hawaii to participate in the Maui Film Festival. She is on hand to accept the rainmaker award for her international success in 12 Years a Slave, as well as for the documentary In My Genes, which she created, directed, and produced in 2009.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Whimsical drawings, poems and short stories from two humorous books John Lennon produced in the 1960s fetched skyrocketing prices at auction Wednesday, including $209,000 for a nine-page parody of Sherlock Holmes.

    The manuscript, "The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield," was the top lot in the sale and had been estimated to bring $50,000 to $70,000.

    The material was created for the two critically acclaimed books Lennon published during the height of Beatlemania. Sotheby's said 100 percent of the 89 lots sold, with 83 percent selling above the pre-sale high estimate.


    "In his Own Write" was a collection of 31 short stories and poems full of puns and spelling errors that was published in 1964. It was a big hit with reviewers who compared Lennon to Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear. It was followed a year later by "A Spaniard in the Works," its title a pun on the British term "a spanner in the works," similar to the American expression "a monkey wrench in the works."

    The collection belonged to Lennon's British publisher, Tom Maschler, who held on to it for a half-century. Sotheby's described it as the the largest private collection of Lennon's work to come to the market. Before becoming famous as a musician, Lennon, who was fatally shot in 1980, trained as an artist at the Liverpool School of Art.

    A cartoon of a boy with six birds that appeared in "A Spaniard in the Works" sold for $27,500 on Wednesday. The drawing was used 30 years later as the cover for the Beatles' single "Free as a Bird."

    The song was written by Lennon in 1977. Twenty-five years after the group's breakup and 15 years after Lennon's death, it was released with additional instrumentation and vocals from the other three band members in 1995. The cartoon had a pre-sale estimate of $12,000 to $15,000.

    "The Fat Budgie," a beloved nonsensical poem with the title written on the margin, sold for $143,000, well past its $35,000 pre-sale estimate.

    A handwritten manuscript called "I Sat Belonely" went for $137,000, surpassing its pre-sale estimate of up to $35,000. A corrected typescript titled "Neville Club" sold for $10,000, which was within its presale estimate of $8,000 to $12,000.

    Maschler called Lennon a man of "extraordinary talent and imagination." He said in a statement that Lennon's art has been underrated and he hoped that the auction would "redress the balance."

    Maschler, who worked with Lennon on the two books while literary director at Jonathan Cape publishers, has worked with other famous authors, including Tom Wolfe, Edward Albee, Philip Roth and Salman Rushdie.

    Singer Jenny Lewis has credited the recording of her new album with pulling her through “one of the most difficult periods” of her life, after suffering a meltdown following the break-up of her cult band Rilo Kiley and the death of her estranged father.

    The star recruited rocker Ryan Adams and his musician pal Mike Viola to help her complete “The Voyager,” her first solo album in six years, and she admits channeling her pain and emotions into her songs proved to be the therapy she desperately needed.

    She tells RollingStone.com, “Making ‘The Voyager’ got me through one of the most difficult periods of my life.

    “After Rilo Kiley broke up and a few really intense personal things happened, I completely melted down. It nearly destroyed me. I had such severe insomnia that, at one point, I didn’t sleep for five straight nights. Many of the songs on ‘The Voyager came’ out of the need to occupy my mind in the moments when I just couldn’t shut down…

    “This record was the hardest one I ever made. ‘The Voyager’ tells that story: the longest night of my life and the journey to finally getting some rest.”

    Lewis lost her dad at the end of 2010 and disbanded Rilo Kiley the following year.

    Now that takes balls!
    Man v. Food host Adam Richman is showing off his hot body after losing a massive amount of weight.
    The 40-year-old TV star, who dropped a whopping 70 pounds last year after changing his diet, took it all off and posed naked for the July issue of British Cosmopolitan to raise awareness of male cancer for Cancer Research U.K. In the photo, Richman flashes a giant smile while lying on his back nude with only a strategically placed team USA soccer ball covering his private parts.
    Richman told the mag, "To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor."

    "If you're a guy who's always been the fun-to-be-around teddy bear, then all of a sudden people are viewing you as sexy, it's nice," he explained."It's great not having to be the plucky best friend, or the comic relief anymore—I love that. Who wouldn't rather hear, 'Wow, you look great,' than, 'Ewww…'?"
    And the soccer ball theme of Richman's nude shoot isn't a coincidence. He actually played lots of soccer to help lose weight.
    "To combat the monotony of gym workouts, I started playing soccer," he told Men's Health. "I looked at workouts as training sessions. My soccer training includes squats, pushups, resistance-band work, and sprints. Ninety minutes of running became part of my love of the game rather than a chore."
    Looking good, Adam!

    We all know breakups are hard. And they’re probably a lot tougher when your ex-boyfriend is popping up all over the tabloids with his new girl.

    It sound like that’s exactly what Trina is dealing with right now, as French Montana, who she was reportedly involved with until earlier this year, has been spotted out and about with Khloe Kardashian. Whether she’s specifically addressing this situation or just wanted to make an anthem for the ladies, the Florida rapper is certainly getting some things off her chest with “Cut U Off,” an unofficial remix to K-Camp’s hit “Cut Her Off.”

    Riding alongside Lil Mo, Trina raps with plenty of confidence on the track. “Cut that n—a off quick/ No coming back, I’m a boss bitch,” she spews.

    “It ain’t nothin’ to cut that bitch off/ It ain’t nothin’ to cut that n—a off,” Lil Mo sings on the chorus, before adding in her verse: “Fuck him and his new bitch/I can give two shits/Especially since that was a bitch I used to be cool with.”

    So what do you think, is Trina aiming at French and Khole with this one?

    I'm over here GAGGING. Trina let Lil Mo doing the talking for her and damn, did she ever!

    Mark Ruffalo has already been plenty generous with dropping hints about "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and now the superhero star is at it again.

    In an interview with Total Film, Ruffalo reinforces some recent statements he made about his work on the follow-up to 2012's "The Avengers," and how the Hulk will get a shot at more screen time for the second installment in the blockbuster franchise.

    "[My role's] even bigger than last time, and it's more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc," Ruffalo told Total Film.

    Whether or not that bigger role includes a love interest for Hulk alter ego Bruce Banner, Ruffalo wouldn't say; but considering the actor has strongly hinted at that possibility in the past, we're banking on that being one factor in the green guy's expanded part.

    Another aspect of the "Avengers 2" production that Ruffalo has discussed before is the motion-capture work he's done with mo-cap legend Andry Serkis, and it seems that the actor is still excited about the effects that audiences will see next summer.

    "I'm really tripping on the technology of this motion-capture stuff," Ruffalo told Total Film. " ... Now I just completely embrace it and see it as this other exciting place we can go as performers."

    We can't wait to see the fruits of Ruffalo's -- and his fellow Avengers' -- labors.

    "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is due in theaters on May 1, 2015.

    True Blood actor Jim Parrack and his wife of almost six years, Ciera Parrack, are pulling the plug on their marriage.

    The 33-year-old actor’s wife filed for divorce in Los Angeles and listed their separation date as September 2013. She cited irreconcilable differences and said there is no community property to fight over, which implies there is probably a prenup, according to TMZ.
    Jim, who is currently starring on Broadway in Of Mice and Men, has since started dating The Hunger Games‘ Leven Rambin, 24.

    The new couple has documented their relationship on their Instagram accounts and Jim even called Leven the “love of my life” in a post just a few days ago. Looks like things are getting serious!

    The competing queens on RuPaul's Drag Race are known for lip-synching for their lives, but sometimes, when they try to sing live, they #$%& it up, to semi-quote Ru. Many Drag Race alums have released aggressively Auto-Tuned singles after sashaying away from the show, but few of them have proven to have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to become real-life pop stars.

    But interestingly, two of this just-wrapped season's Drag Race finalists, Courtney Act and Adore Delano, are talented live singers — in fact, before making it to the Drag Race top three this year, they competed on Australian Idol and American Idol, respectively. (They lost on this Monday's finale to very worthy opponent Bianca Del Rio.) Courtney recently released her new single, "Mean Gays," and Adore, formerly known as American Idol Season 7 semifinalist Danny Noriega, just filled up our earholes with her gooey debut single, "DTF."

    So to celebrate this week’s release of Adore’s debut album, here's a party playlist of actually decent singles by actually musically talented Drag Race alumni. You betta werk!
    8. Alaska, "Ru Girl"

    Take the Rosemary's Baby-like hell-spawn of Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson, put her in a low-budget version of Madonna's "Justify My Love" video, and have her deadpan-rap the names of her fellow Drag Race alums a la the Nails doing "88 Lines About 44 Women." The result? The super-dirrty "Ru Girl." This one's totally NSFW (even if you happen to work at Logo TV or World of Wonder), but you can watch the always-controversial Alaska's unRuPaulogetically seedy video HERE.


    7. Jinkx Monsoon, "Coffee and Wine"

    Let's raise a toast to the Season 5 Drag Race queen and starlet of the traveling cabaret show "The Vaudevillians," who keeps it old-school with this charming burlesque number. That Jinkx is always such a class act! Her full-length debut, The Inevitable Album, features contributions from B-52's frontman Fred Schneider.


    5. Willam Belli, "Rupologize"

    The infamously disqualified troublemaker of Season 4 got her musical start in a dragtastic L.A. punk/glam band, whose X-rated name cannot be printed here. And post-Drag Race, Willam is still raising (perfectly stenciled) eyebrows with her music parodies, sometimes as part of DWV, a group with fellow comedy queens Detox (Drag Race Season 5) and Vicky Vox. All of Willam's NSFW singles are hilarious, but "Chow Down," a bizarre ode to anti-gay fast food joint Chic-Fil-A set to the tune of Wilson Phillips's "Hold On," and the OneRepublic sendup "RuPaulogize" are the funniest of the lot. Willam is well on her way to becoming the Weird Al of drag — and I mean that as the highest compliment.

    4. Raja, "Diamond Crowned Queen"

    The Season 3 runway-ruling champion's debut single is a deliciously trashy track, reminiscent of '70s sleazefests like "Warm Leatherette," '80s industrial, and mid-'90s house music — with a whole lot of groaning straight out of a Berlin or Donna Summer/Giorgio Moroder remix thrown in. As a bonus, the song's steamy video stars the other fiercest femme fatale in Drag Race herstory, Raven. (Why didn't Raven ever put out a single, huh?)


    3. Sharon Needles, "Call Me On the Ouija Board"

    The winning Goth-glam goddess of Season 4 spent the majority of her Drag Race $100,000 booty financing the recording and promotion of her original album, PG-13. Was this money that would have been better spent at Party City? That's up for debate, but PG-13 (which features cameos by RuPaul, Jayne County, Scissor Sisters' Ana Matronic, and Amanda Lepore, plus a cover of Ministry's "Every Day Is Halloween") did debut respectably at No. 186 on the Billboard 200. It even got all the way to No. 4 on iTunes' Pop chart! It also spawned two of the best Drag Race contestant singles ever. "Ouija Board" is a particularly Blondie-esque pop-punk romp.

    1. Adore Delano, "DTF"

    This is the song Kelis wishes she'd made. Adore brings all the boys to yard (or, in the just-premiered, NSFW video's case, the laundromat) with her trampy, unabashedly trashy jam with the seemingly Jersey Shore-inspired title. If only she'd been able to get this down 'n' dirty on Idol back in the day! There is a lot to adore about "DTF." Adore's brilliantly titled debut album, Till Death Do Us Party, comes out June 3.

    The Kardashians With Kris Jenner

    Kris Jenner may still be trying to catch her breath after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's whirlwind wedding in Paris last month, but she was ready to talk about her family's busy May in an interview on TODAY's Kathie Lee & Hoda on Thursday June 5.

    The momager, 58, gushed that her second-eldest daughter's Florentine nuptials were "so beautiful and magical…it was just a love fest." In fact, Jenner added, "It was the most wonderful time I think I've ever had and it's hard to explain that to somebody in words."

    Her favorite moment from the wedding? When "Kim thought she was walking down the aisle to a recording of Andrea Bocelli singing," she explains, "And … all of a sudden she looks over and sees Andrea Bocelli standing there singing … and she looks up and she actually like screamed … it was so cute."

    Jenner went on to confirm her 33-year-old daughter did indeed change her name to Kim Kardashian West, but the newlyweds are "still my roommates.” Mr. and Mrs. West have been living with Jenner while renovating their $11 million Bel-Air home they purchased in January 2013.

    "Yesterday morning I was walking out the door to catch a plane at 4 o'clock in the morning and Kanye was rolling in [through the door at the same time] from New York and I'm like, 'I can't keep track!'"

    One benefit of sharing a roof with the Kardashian-Wests, of course, is quality time with her granddaughter North, who turns 12 months next week. "It's been amazing watching North grow up" and to see how wonderful a father Kanye is.

    "He's the best dad in the world," Jenner gushed of West, 36, "I never would have guessed that the two of them would have this little girl wrapped around their fingers, so it's been so wonderful to watch."

    PHOTOS: Stars who have been married more than three times

    And she's enjoying the extra company. "Bruce is in Malibu [and] Kendall moved out," she said, "So it's going to be just Kylie and I."

    It’s been a less joyous time for her only son, Rob Kardashian. The mom of six stayed relatively quiet on the matter but offered: "Rob is working on himself," Jenner said, "He's going to be okay. A lot of prayer and, you know, he's such a great human being … he's my heart."

    The 58-year-old then changed the subject and revealed she's executive producing the upcoming Kardashians spinoff Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons. "Contrary to popular belief," Jenner laughed of rumors the prestigious neighborhood is annoyed the girls are there, "everyone is happy they're there."

    Kourtney, who is currently in the Hamptons with Khloe and her family, is carrying precious cargo while filming the spinoff -- her third child!

    Us Weekly exclusively revealed on June 4, Kourtney is pregnant with her third child, but her mom told Kathie Lee and Hoda, "I think you're going to probably get the answer to that on the premiere of … Keeping Up With The Kardashians" which airs this Sunday, June 9.

    The “Whiplash” director is courting the duo to star in Lionsgate's upcoming movie

    Four months after Damien Chazelle's critically acclaimed drama “Whiplash” won the top prize at Sundance, Miles Teller is in early talks to reteam with the writer-director on the musical “La La Land,” with “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson in talks for the female lead, multiple individuals familiar with the Lionsgate project told TheWrap.

    “La La Land” is a two-hander that follows a pair of dreamers — aspiring actress Mia, who's lonely desperate to fit in, and cocky yet charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian — who fall in love in Los Angeles. However, the city that brought them together may tear them apart, as they soon discover that balancing love and art in such a cutthroat climate isn't easy.

    Jordan Horowitz (“The Kids Are All Right”) will produce for Gilbert Films, while Fred Berger will produce for his own Impostor Pictures. Lionsgate will distribute the movie, which was packaged by WME Global. The film is also expected to find Chazelle reuniting with his go-to composer Justin Hurwitz (“Whiplash”).

    A song-and-dance romance, “La La Land” bills itself as a movie about big dreams, the big city and the kind of love that makes life feel like a musical.

    TheWrap obtained Chazelle's “lookbook” for “La La Land” — a document that helps describe the story, characters, look and tone of the film — and found the Director's Statement to be quite compelling.

    “I'd like to make a contemporary musical about L.A., starting with the L.A. we know but slowly building to a vision of the city as romantic metropolis–one that is actually worthy of the dreams it inspires. I'd like to make a musical about the way L.A.'s peculiar rhythms can push its residents to the edge of their emotions–be they hope, desperation or love. Think the kind of teetering-toward-madness you see in “The Graduate” or “Boogie Nights”, and imagine if you were to push that further. In this case, the city pushes its residents all the way: it pushes them into song.

    The characters of this movie are just people trying to make it. One thing most movies about struggling L.A. actors and musicians miss is the poetry of their struggle: these are blue-collar folks working day in and day out to make something happen. What I'm interested in is pitting their yearnings and their ambitions against the musical genre. After all, musicals are all about the push-and-pull between reality and fantasy; the heroes of this film, because of their big dreams, are constantly poised on that edge.

    At its core, this is a movie about artists in love–and what it means to be an artist in love in arguably the most competitive city on the planet. How do you juggle the need to find success as an artist with the need to share oneself with another human being? And how do you do so in a place where every poster, every street corner and every sign remind you of the glories just beyond reach? L.A. is the “Dream Factory”, and to me there's something swooningly romantic about that: all those unsung songs and unrealized ideas clouding the air. By casting an affectionate eye on a pair of young hopefuls, while aspiring to the kind of full-fledged romanticism you hardly ever see in today's movies, I hope to capture the spirit of the city I now call home, and make a movie that feels both classical and urgent–and, yes, intrinsically L.A.”

    Miley Cyrus can rest easy ... the LAPD has arrested two people they say broke into her home and stole her Maserati last weekend.

    Cops ID'd a male and female -- both in their 20s -- late Thursday morning. The pair was walking on a North Hollywood street and detectives recognized them from the surveillance video.

    As TMZ first reported, Miley's stolen Maserati was abandoned almost immediately after it was stolen Saturday night while Miley was out of town.

    Cops have yet to recover some expensive jewelry that was also stolen during the break-in.

    We're told at this point the 2 suspects have no known connection to Miley.

    It's unclear if the male was wearing his now-famous skinny jeans.

    "Orange Is the New Black," and it's the new face of comedy, too.

    Since its debut in July 2013, the original Netflix series has become the poster child for the way many of us now watch TV -- in large doses, on our own time, and often on something other than an actual television set.

    But before "Orange Is the New Black" became the hottest topic for anyone with Internet access, it was a languishing concept from "Weeds" producer Jenji Kohan, who was struggling to find a home for the series based on a book by Piper Kerman.



    As viewers learned in season one, "Orange Is the New Black" follows a well-bred New Yorker named Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), who gets sent to a Connecticut women's prison on an old drug charge that involved smuggling money for ex-girlfriend Alex Vause (Laura Prepon), who just happens to be serving time in the same facility. While there, Chapman gets indoctrinated into prison life with a series of scenes that have become infamous, like a bloody tampon given to her in a sandwich and a cellmate urinating on the floor.

    Chapman, along with characters like Red (Kate Mulgrew), a grim Russian cook; Sophia (Laverne Cox), a transgender former firefighter; Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), who's initially fixated on Chapman; and Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), a disturbed drug addict, bring this dark comedy to life in a way that wouldn't have been out of place on pay-cable networks like HBO or Showtime.

    Except neither network wanted it.

    And then, in walked Netflix. With the company's image changing from being a source of mail-ordered movies to a streaming hub of entertainment, the service happily snapped up Kohan's dark comedy. As the writer/producer recalled to The New York Times, Netflix "pretty much bought it in the room."

    The company's eagerness has paid off in full, as "Orange Is the New Black" has become the service's most-watched original series, according to an October letter to shareholders, and is already renewed for a third season.

    But first, we have to prepare for season two's arrival on Friday. Though cast members and Kohan are tight-lipped about what's to come, here are a few tidbits on what to expect:

    1. Nudity."I love graphic sex, the more sex the better," Kohan said at an industry lunch in April. And the show has certainly put some of its performers on display right from showering get-go. This year may include male nudity, Kohan said, with a caveat: "I don't think it's going to be erect."

    2. Triangle tension. You know that romantic triangle between prison guards Pornstache (Pablo Schreiber) and Bennett (Matt McGorry) and Daya (Dascha Polanco)? It's going to get messier. "There's kind of a tectonic shift happening between Pornstache, Bennett and Daya by the big point of the second season, and I think you might be surprised who you may be siding with in that triumvirate," Schreiber told EW.

    3. A rising writer. Larry's had some success with his column about having a fiancée in prison, but his relationship with her is under strain. "If you're going to keep Larry involved, there needs to be some sort of change, and there are some in store," Jason Biggs, who plays Larry, told EW.

    4. More romance and back story. Big Boo (Lea DeLaria) and Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) are going to have a "sex contest," reports TV Guide. We'll find out more about Red's (Kate Mulgrew) Russian gangster past. And watch out for a key insect.

    5. A change of the guard? A number of "Orange" stars have commitments to other shows. Natasha Lyonne (Nicky) is doing an NBC show produced by Amy Poehler, and Schreiber is working on an HBO comedy. Laura Prepon (Alex) told the Daily Beast she will be in just four episodes in season two, though she's indicated she'd be willing to come back full-time for season three. Kohan is already thinking ahead. "If I could keep cycling people through and bringing in new people, the show could go on forever," she told EW.

    Whether it’s Sherlock Holmes or Star Trek‘s Khan, Benedict Cumberbatch is known for portraying complex, nuanced characters. Still, the actor felt a particular responsibility to dig deep when it came time to play brilliant cryptographer Alan Turing—the British mathematician who deciphered Nazi codes during WWII and was later prosecuted for being gay—in The Imitation Game.

    “He’s an exceptional man,” says Cumberbatch, who prepped for the role by perfecting Turing’s stuttering cadences and studying his correspondence with the mother of his high school crush. “I hope this film does justice to this unsung hero.”

    The movie hits theaters Nov. 21 (or Nov. 14, if you fly to the U.K. to see it), but we procured a couple stills to hold you over.

    Film Reviews: (Waiting for actual film reviews that rip this film apart tbh.)

    Christopher Campbell of Movies.com - "Hodge comes closer to making those of us who can't possibly get it at least start to comprehend what is really going on here and why. If we all joined them (the bronies) in not necessarily watching and playing with and dressing up as My Little Pony but at least in following its message and influence, then the planet would be a much better place."

    Tassoula of Cinebanter - "These folks don't appear creepy or crazy; they're passionate and sincere. Above all, they're sweet . . . it's nice to see a documentary that leaves you feeling good instead of bad."

    "As long as My Little Pony exists there will be bronies." - Ashleigh Ball, A Brony Tale
