Twitter has long received flack for its weak responses to clear instances of abuse over its network, but now it finally says that it's going to do... something. In a statement provided to The Washington Post with regard to the harassment of Zelda Williams, Twitter's vice president of trust and safety says that the company is currently "evaluating how we can further improve our policies to better handle tragic situations like this one." He says that may include making Twitter's policies stricter with regard to self-harm or private information, and it could also mean better watching out for users who have just had a family member die.
That last item is particularly important, as it's Zelda Williams' announcement that she was leaving Twitter that's sparked the latest controversy. Following her father's death, Williams began seeing harassment on Twitter by people who sent messages blaming her. They also sent edited images of her father that included bruises around his neck. "We will not tolerate abuse of this nature on Twitter," Twitter tells the Post. Two Twitter users who were noted as particular problems in Williams' case have since had their accounts suspended.
Twitter's statement is still a relatively weak one, giving little in the way of what we can actually expect to see it change. It's not a clear promise that meaningful results will come, just a recognition that something needs to happen — and that's been clear for a long time. Still, it sounds as though Twitter could finally be ready to draw a stronger line in the sand for what constitutes abuse and harassment, making it easier for people to report bad situations and have them dealt with. The latest incident is a very high profile example, and it may be a much harder one for Twitter to brush aside.
don't let me down ontd <33
Mara Wilson, the young actress who played Robin Williams’ adorable daughter in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” has broken her silence about the actor’s suicide.
Now 27 years-old, Wilson took to her blog to share some thoughts on Williams, saying “it’s as if my favorite teacher died.”
From her personal blog:
Everybody grieves in their own way. When I heard about Robin’s death, I was shocked, confused angry, regretful, and above all, sad. All I wanted was talk to my family and friends and cry. A few news outlets asked if I would be willing to talk about him on the air, and while I usually like interviews, I knew I wasn’t in a good place to do that. I still (a whole three days later) don’t want to do any. It’s too soon, and I need my own time to process it all. I will, however, be sharing some of my memories about him on this blog sometime soon.
While Robin and I had not talked in a few years, there is no question he had a great impact on my life. He was as warm and talented as everyone says, and a joy to be around. It’s as if my favorite teacher died.
More to come later.
Wilson was one of the first collaborators to respond to the news on Monday, writing on Twitter: “Very sad, very upset…probably going to take some time off for a while.”
We all know Ivanka Trump from Celebrity Apprentice and other high-profile appearances, but Donald Trump has another daughter who's managed to stay almost completely out of the spotlight for two decades. (When The Donald is your dad, that's really saying something.) Her name is Tiffany Trump and her mother is Marla Maples. As of late, however, the 20-year-old has been raising her public profile a bit… because the mysterious heiress wants to be a pop star.
Thankfully, the youngest Trump daughter didn't inherit her father's infamous hair. Her blond locks, along with her killer smile and casually cool style, were the first thing we noticed when we spotted her walking through the streets of New York City with her mother. No wonder she grabbed the attention of photographers.
Tiffany didn't always have fame on her mind. She moved to California with her mom in 1998, after Marla's marriage to Donald ended. While Donald lives large in New York, it seems that Marla keeps a somewhat lower profile in the Golden State. During her teenage years (a time when Ivanka was running around Manhattan and posing for fashion magazines), Tiffany was attending Viewpoint School in Calabasas and spent much of her free time cooking dinners and playing tennis with her mother.
"My mom and I have always been very close. I think she did raise me as a single mom," Tiffany shared a few years ago in a video segment for The Oprah Winfrey Show appropriately called "Meet Tiffany Trump." "Growing up, we were always together and I know my friends — everyone at home — is like, 'Wow, you guys have a really good relationship.'"
But while she loved quality time with her mom, she also admitted to other aspirations. (Spoiler alert: They don't involve real estate or sitting in the boardroom.)
"I love music. It's always been very dear to me. It's a big passion. It's more of a hobby right now, but we'll see in a couple of years if I want to take it to the next level as a professional," she hinted in the video before adding, "Right now my focus is on school and getting into a good college."
It seems she succeeded, as she's currently a student at her father's alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, and has also released a single, "Like a Bird." (Haven't heard of it? Neither had we.)
"My brothers and sisters have all achieved so much in their lives and they've had so much success," Tiffany mused about her half-siblings. "Since I have grown up on the West Coast and all the rest of them have grown up on the East Coast, it's a different kind of lifestyle, obviously."
But that doesn't mean she hasn't been in touch with her New York counterparts. Showing off some family photos, Tiffany pointed out snaps of Donald at her high school graduation and herself as a bridesmaid at Ivanka's wedding.
Despite being a college student and working toward a career in music, she finds time to live it up like the rest of the Trumps, as her Instagram account attests. Recent shots show the blonde glammed up at a piano, kicking back with her Chanel handbag in first class on the way to London, and chilling on a boat in Greece.
Still, she insists she's not caught up in all that. "I have a good head on my shoulders," she explained. "I've always been grounded. People would think not because of who I am, but I've always been raised with that sense of morals from my dad and my mother both."
We'll have to wait and see if her music career takes flight, but, with those Trump genes, she's probably not going to give up easily.
You can hear her one and only song from 2011, Like a Bird, here. I'll let you judge. Also LOL @ sense of morals from her dad.

@cher just send me a DM 😳 im fangirling— Hilary Duff (@HilaryDuff) 15 Août 2014
Demi Lovato and Hilary Duff both rocked hints of black leather at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Who wore it best?
When Demi Lovato took the stage to open the show with her hit ‘Really Don’t Care,’ she looked fiercer than ever in an all-black ensemble, complete with a black leather jacket and a Moschino tie. Demi not only looked like a total badass in her leather duds, the jacket gave her a totally edgy look that only enhanced her super passionate and hardcore performance. Demi is not afraid to speak her mind, and her punk-like leather jacket is only an extension of her killer attitude.
Hilary Duff‘s black leather skirt-floral shirt combo is the perfect representation of the singer-actress — it’s a little bit sweet and a little bit edgy, kind of like her two brand-new singles. While ‘Chasing the Sun’ is super bubbly, ‘All About You’ is much more provocative. We love the juxtaposition of Duff’s hardcore leather skirt with the extra girly crop-top. It’s flirty and feminine, but with just a touch of that “don’t mess with me” vibe.
Which pop star rocks the leather look best?

Classy Dames in Desperate Straits
Cate Blanchett and Isabelle Huppert in ‘The Maids’ at City Center
By BEN BRANTLEY
Some real classy dames are tearing up the joint at City Center, where the Sydney Theater Company is performing its rip-roaring production of Jean Genet’s “The Maids” as part of theLincoln Center Festivalthrough Aug. 16. You might add that these ladies, embodied in the august personages ofCate Blanchett and Isabelle Huppert,are stinking up the place, as well.
Their language, with its sewer-mouth talk of body odors and functions, is as rank as it is florid. Then there’s that fancy perfume they keep spritzing on their private parts. And, oh, those cut flowers — what looks like acres of them — which are flung about at random and used as vigorous instruments of flagellation.
A less-charitable theatergoer might detect another aroma within this bouquet of smells: the whiff of acting so ripe it’s gone rotten. But to object to that would be to miss the point of what the comfort-zone-trashing director,Benedict Andrews,and his brave cast of three — which is rounded out by the smashing young actress Elizabeth Debicki — are trying to achieve here.
That would be a portrait of people who are acting from desperation, trying on poses (and clothes and makeup) in a furious, futile bid to achieve some sense of identity. Becoming someone else to become yourself, and flailing and failing, is a sad and sorry existential process in “The Maids,” which was inspired by a true story of homicidal sisters working as domestics.
The first play written by Genet, theprofessional outlawand great poète maudit of the 20th century, this 1947 drama is about acting as being, and being as nothingness. Small wonder that the existential philosopherJean-Paul Sartreembraced it so heartily.
Whether New York audience members will clasp this unlovable show (newly translated with contemporary references and vulgarity by Mr. Andrews and Andrew Upton) to its bosom is another matter, especially if they’ve mortgaged their apartment to buy scalpers’ tickets. It is, to put it bluntly, a mess, in ways both intentional and unintentional.
Featuring a multimedia, dimension-scrambling set by Alice Babidge that suggests the world’s ritziest walk-in closet, the show throws in everything but the kitchen sink. No, scratch that; there is a kitchen sink. It is loud, lurid and often impossible to follow, even if you know the play beforehand.
And I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
That’s largely because of Ms. Blanchett, who won the Oscar this year for Woody Allen’s“Blue Jasmine”and has been seen to dazzling effect in New York with the Sydney Theater Company productions of “A Streetcar Named Desire” and“Uncle Vanya.”Once again, she proves herself to be the ruling mutation master among contemporary actresses.
Ms. Blanchett portrays Claire, the younger and (marginally) meeker of the two title characters, who with her sister, Solange (Ms. Huppert), regularly acts out the fantasy ritual of murdering their rich and gorgeous employer, known only as Mistress, played by Ms. Debicki. (On this night, Claire gets to be Mistress, while Solange portrays Claire.) In doing so, Ms. Blanchett would seem to deploy every theatrical tool that she has at her command, though I suspect she still holds a few in reserve to surprise us the next time we see her.
Within minutes — no, seconds — she switches from the tones and postures of self-effacing servility to raging aristocratic arrogance, from little-girl passivity to assaultive sexuality. She truly contains multitudes. The wonder is that we believe every one of these self-contradicting displays, even though we know that Claire and the actress playing her are just, uh, acting. And she forces us to the uneasy conclusion that acting may be all there is in life.
That may also be implicit in the performance of Ms. Huppert, one of the French screen’s most fearless and incisive stars. But it’s hard to make that assessment, given that her thick accent renders her unintelligible for much of the time. Her scrappy, fierce Solange is a whirling dervish of acrobatic energy, for sure.
She matches Ms. Blanchett’s Claire in her intense, whiplash physicality but not in tonal variety. Ms. Huppert also tends to mime her lines with fervent comic exaggeration, suggesting a visitor from the Planet French Music Hall. Is there any way that Solange and Claire could really be sisters? And is it possible that their Mistress, no matter how socially myopic she is, could ever confuse one with the other?
I’m assuming there’s method in the casting here. Genet wanted “The Maids” to be performed by men, to emphasize the gap between a person’s self-perception and the gaze of those who look upon him. Ms. Huppert’s blatant dissimilarity to Ms. Blanchett discounts any possibility of our accepting “The Maids” on easy naturalistic terms.
So, too, does the production’s use of simultaneous video projections (by Sean Bacon), captured by camera operators who are visible behind the set’s transparent side walls. Sometimes the camera creates still lives out of the flowers, dresses and objets de luxe that are thrown about.
On other occasions, it lingers on the faces of the actresses, and you realize that the women on the screen are not the same as the characters you’ve been watching through the haze of stage lights. (Nick Schlieper did the intricate lighting.) Well, at least not in the cases of Ms. Blanchett and Ms. Huppert, who appear much older and wearier in merciless close-up.
Ms. Debicki, who is in her early 20s, looks pretty much the same, which is ravishingly unlined. And you see the ingenuity in Mr. Andrews’s casting the Mistress as a spoiled debutante type rather than the usual middle-aged society matron. Excess, after all, is an accessory that looks attractive only on the young.
This Mistress can still get away with changing her attitudes and emotions the way she changes clothes. Once she makes her entrance more than halfway through the play, you see how precisely Claire has been imitating her. Such exact mimicry makes both women seem pathetic, but especially Claire, because she’s now too old for that part.
That Ms. Debicki sometimes resembles the Cate Blanchett of 20 years ago makes the parallels all the more disturbing. And the double act they perform toward the end of the production’s uninterrupted 115 minutes makes you uncomfortable in ways I imagine might have pleased Genet, who was notoriously hard to please.
By the way, in the very first pages of the Playbill for “The Maids,” you’ll find a double-page ad for aGiorgio Armani fragrance,featuring an exquisitely serene model. That’s Ms. Blanchett. It seems highly appropriate that onstage the same woman is tearing that image to shreds. This perfume goddess is stinking to high heaven. I mean that as a major compliment.

WWE star Jonathan Good, known in the ring as Dean Ambrose, will headline the film, to be directed by Stephen Reynolds (“Tomb Raider: Ascension”). Production starts this month.
Good, who made his debut on WWE’s main roster in 2012, has generated a major fan following after breaking out as a member of the group The Shield, and quickly proved his abilities on the mic and in story lines in and outside of the ring. WWE is now betting that he may be able to cross over into films, as well. “Lockdown” will be his first starring role in a movie.
Written by Nathan Brooks and Bobby Lee Darby (“See No Evil 2″), “Lockdown” follows a police officer who finds himself trapped inside his own precinct and hunted after crooked cops stop at nothing to recover incriminating evidence of illegal activities against those closest to him.
“Lockdown will continue to energize and excite with the high level of adrenaline our fans have come to expect from our films,” said WWE Studios president Michael Luisi.
The six new action films are meant to showcase WWE talent in starring roles and help incubate new talent, WWE and Lionsgate said when making the deal in May.
Lionsgate sparked to the idea of being able to market the movies to WWE’s fanbase that watches its weekly TV shows and pay-per-views, as well as visits its websites and subscribes to its digital network.
“We’re proud to continue our long-standing partnership with WWE Studios, whose prowess in marketing to their global fan base delivers a consistent track record of commercial success,” said Lionsgate co-chief operating officer and motion picture group president Steve Beeks.
Can't wait for Summerslam! Who do you think is going to win? Cena or Brock? AJ or Paige?
For some reason, watching him answer questions while playing ping pong is stressing me out. Dan Rad remains adorable and charming.

See a special full episode preview of A to Z, the new comedy starring Ben Feldman and Cristin Milioti coming October 2!
"A to Z" tells the story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, "Mad Men," "The Mindy Project") and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, "The Wolf of Wall Street," "How I Met Your Mother") - a pair that almost wasn't - and all that happened from the day they met.
Andrew Lofland, while a guy's guy, has always been a secret romantic... not above crooning to Celine Dion while driving to work, with dreams of finding "the one." He imagines her to be just like that shimmering beauty he spotted that night in that silver dress at that concert two years ago. Zelda Vasco is a no-nonsense lawyer who has strong feelings about being her own person and prefers the control of online dating. However, when a computer glitch sends her a total mismatch, she's asked to come in for an interview at Wallflower Online Dating, the agency where Andrew works.
Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time and despite their differences, sparks fly. She thinks it's chance. He thinks it's fate. After all, he's convinced she's the shimmering girl in the silver dress. Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny?
While at work, Andrew must navigate around Lydia, aka "Big Bird" (Christina Kirk, "Girls," "Taking Woodstock"), his boss and general manager at Wallflower, who has a way of making everyone in the office uncomfortable. Hardly the romantic, she believes her job is not helping people find true love, but rather keeping them paying their monthly membership fee. Stu (Henry Zebrowski, "The Wolf of Wall Street," "White Irish Drinkers") is Andrew's loyal friend, colleague and roommate. Intense and eccentric, Stu has no qualms offering up his misplaced insights and doling out unsolicited advice. Lora (Hong Chau, "Treme") is also a colleague at Wallflower working as a programmer, and her work skills have been known to come in quite handy when Andrew needs a favor.
Meanwhile, Stephie (Lenora Crichlow, "Fast Girls," "Being Human") is Zelda's best friend, roommate and colleague at the law firm where Zelda works. A fool for love, she has a wedding Pinterest page, even though she has never been engaged.
Featured as the narrator is Katey Sagal ("Sons of Anarchy").
Andrew and Zelda will date for eight months, three weeks, five days and one hour. This program is a comprehensive account of their relationship - from "A to Z."
Ben Queen ("Drive"), Rashida Jones ("Parks and Recreation"), Will McCormack ("Celeste & Jesse Forever"), Bill Callahan ("Psych") and Michael Patrick Jann ("Reno 911!") serve as executive producers. Queen wrote the pilot, which was directed by Jann. "A to Z" is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Le Train Train Productions.
Break out the whiskey, Outlander fans: Starz’ time-travel romance has been greenlit for season 2.
The series adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novels will return, presumably next year. The second season will be based upon the second of Gabaldon’s eight Outlander novels — Dragonfly in Amber.
But wait: Season 2 could be shorter than the first (or, less likely, longer). Starz isn’t specifying an episode count at this early stage and is only publicly committing to “at least” 13 episodes for the next round. The current debut season is 16 episodes — which is considered a rather large commitment for a premium cable drama (most pay cable shows have 13 annual episodes, but several have less — including that other novel-based fantasy drama, HBO’s Game of Thrones, which has 10 per year).
Starz says viewership of last week’s premiere has surpassed 5 million views across all platforms, and — the network emphasized — drew roughly equal male and female viewership. “The overwhelming support Outlander has received from the fans, viewers and critics made the decision for us to go ahead with the second book a very easy one,” said Starz’ CEO Chris Albrecht. “Diana Gabaldon has given us years of great drama. With an incredible artist such as Ronald D. Moore at the helm and a cast as spectacular as this, we look forward to continue this spell-binding journey with Claire, Jamie, Frank, Brianna, Roger and everybody over the centuries.”
Could a real life threat, based on the movie The Purge actually happen in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend? Residents of the mid-south city are being warned about just that being possible and authorities say they are ready. The Louisville Metro Police have stated they are taking very seriously the threats that have been made and were based on the violent movie. Many terrorizations have made the rounds on various social media outlets about what is supposedly going to happen in the city starting Friday evening.
The Purge film is centered on a 12 hour period which is selected by the government where there are no laws that are enforced and any type of crime can be committed. One trend going on social media declared the so-called Louisville Purge was going to happen on Friday, Aug. 15. LMPD is reacting to the apparent threat by explaining they are watching everything extremely carefully and are taking each threat received as very serious.
It was reported by one Louisville news agency that fliers and posters had been placed all over the city, and on them were announcements about a Purge crime binge that would go into effect on Friday evening starting at 8:30 p.m. and would last until Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. for all the residents of the Bluegrass state’s largest city. The LMPD sent out a police news release about all the posters and fliers attempting to assure Louisville residents that the police department would be prepared and ready if any type of mass trouble began to occur.
A police spokesperson stated that all threats were taken seriously. Of course everyone hopes that nothing happens, but the Louisville police are prepared in case anything does go awry.
The popularity of the Purge movie, along with its sequel, also joined with global occurrences such as ISIS’s attacking of Iraq, the battles between Israel and Hamas, the conflict happening in Ukraine and even the riots which are now going on near St. Louis in Ferguson, Missouri have all together helped bring extremely violent ideas even more so to public awareness.
The Purge is the first of a fictitious film series where, sometime in the close future, the government permits all crimes to be legal for a 12 hour period. So of course pandemonium strikes as the inmates are allowed to totally take over the asylum. Assault, burglary, rape and murder are all legal, and inhabitants have to go on the defensive for 12 hours to try and stay alive. The first Purge starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey and received moderate success when it came out last summer.
Its sequel, Purge: Anarchy, which stars Frank Grillo, opened in theaters in July and got decent reviews.
The ‘Purge’ type threat comes just as the Kentucky State Fair is also opening in the next few days. It is held near Louisville at the Kentucky Exposition Center. With police already being spread thin due to the popular event, this just adds more stress and strain to the threats
Even though the threats could just be just pranks attempting to stir up terror and concern in the city, the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department has made it plain that they are taking these threats extremely seriously and are going to be ready to act if anything does transpire. Such a crime spree threat would be a series of isolated events and in no way would it be a government authorized program as it was portrayed in the two movies. The hypothetical real life ‘Purge’ is supposed to start at sundown on Friday, which will be around 8:30 p.m.
So if a real life situation similar to The Purge was to actually happen in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend, residents have been warned about the dangers and the LMPD states they are ready and prepared.
fuck this world. goodbye. eta: i said this in the comments below, but i will bet you my final dollar this will be bored, rich white boys who have never known consequence to their actions.
Another Duggar daughter is ready to tie the knot. "19 Kids & Counting" star Jessa Duggar, 21-years-old, has gotten engaged to Ben Seewald, after they began courting in 2013.
The news comes from People, who reports that Seewald popped the question Thursday (Aug. 14). Once they were engaged, Duggar and Seewald held hands for the first time, though they are saving the first kiss for their wedding day.
Jessa is the third child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar to get engaged. Josh married Anna in 2008 and has three children, while Jill wed Derek Dillars in June. "19 Kids & Counting" is set to return Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
When was your first kiss ontd?
Gene Simmons has infuriated a lot of people after an interview revealing his thoughts about depression and suicide emerged.
Last month the rocker told Songfacts.com:
For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, ‘I’m depressed. I live in Seattle.’ Fuck you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I’m the guy who says ‘Jump’ when there’s a guy on top of a building who says, ‘That’s it, I can’t take it anymore. I’m going to jump.’ Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fuck up, have some dignity and jump! You’ve got the crowd.
“By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, ‘I’m going to blow your fuckin’ head off.’ He’ll go, ‘Please don’t.’ It’s true. He’s not that insane.”
The comments are particularly poignant this week, coming so soon after the death of Robin Williams, who was suffering from depression at the time of his death.
So, needless to say, a lot of people are shocked by Simmons’ comments.

Although he did make the comments two weeks before Williams’ death, and he tweeted this when he heard the sad news.
R.I.P. Robin Williams. A kind and generous man.— Gene Simmons (@genesimmons) August 11, 2014
But even that didn’t impress some people, who were quick to point out the meaning of his words.
@genesimmons He followed your advice and killed himself and killed himself. Impressed with yourself yet? Depression is real, & you're a dick— Kate Woolard (@maikastar) August 15, 2014
Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx has criticised the rocker, too.
I struggled with addiction and depression but found recovery.Would you be happy if I killed myself instead?Also my 4 kids wouldnt been born.— Nikki Sixx (@NikkiSixx) August 13, 2014

Miley Cyrus did not come in like a wrecking ball.
Contrary to a report making the rounds, the Bangerz artist and her entourage did not make a scene in the lobby of New York City's Greenwich Hotel earlier this month and Miley did not lash out at management when they supposedly asked her to put a lid on the party. The report also alleged that staffers were then asked to lodge individual complaints after their famous guest made a fuss.
"There were no complaints," a source assures E! News, and Miley "never had an outburst in the lobby."
The rumored incident had supposedly gone down Aug. 2, following her concert that night in Philadelphia.
Meanwhile, at least going by the slew of photos she's posted to Instagram, Miley has continued to be her usual born-entertainer-meets-homebody self these past weeks.
In addition to acquiring piglet Bubba Sue for her menagerie—"dog pig life," she captioned one cute pic of herself snuggling with her pets—she's been posing for selfies with her dancers, the LA Bakers, and last night it appears she hit some sort of show in Chicago, where she has a concert tonight at United Center, featuring masked hot girls in bikinis. You know, a usual Wednesday night.
But for the most part, it looks as though Miley has been saving the real spectacle for the stage.
Teen Wolf and The Leftovers‘ Charlie Carver has joined the cast of Michael, a biopic about a gay activist who renounces his homosexuality.
According to Deadline, Carver will portray Tyler, who enters a relationship with Michael (Franco) and his partner Bennett (Zachary Quinto). Tyler will be heartbroken when Michael eventually rejects his homosexuality after he finds God and becomes a Christian pastor.
This is not the first gay role Carver has been in. On Teen Wolf, he starred alongside his twin brother as Ethan, who was part of the Alpha Pack in the first half of season 3. Both the Carvers ended up staying on for the second half of the season as well, though they soon became allies rather than enemies to the main characters.
Michael is being produced by Gus van Sant and also stars Emma Roberts, who will portray Michael’s girlfriend once he renounces his homosexuality.
Franco has undergone a bit of a makeover in order to portray Michael Glatze, most notably dying his hair blond.
How very reverse Steve Newlin of him...
It’s finally here! And the forums were right — the long overdue model cover for U.S. Vogue has actually happened. Not surprisingly, it features Vogue favorites and uber-models Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss.
re we excited? Of course we are!
“Hell f***ing yes! So thrilled to see models on the cover of Vogue, was not expecting that at all. And especially happy to see Joan on the cover, I think she’s just wonderful,” exclaimed YoninahAliza.
“I’m so shocked! Hopefully this sells like hotcakes so that Anna will see that models on covers CAN move magazines. I like the breezy and fresh feel of the cover, but I think just Joan and Karlie would have worked much better,” analyzed orchidee.
And LastNight shared: “Perfect!!! Oh my goodness I am so unbelievably happy. These three girls were the most likely out of the current crop of models to be on the very front if US Vogue were to do a model cover and here they are! It looks lovely from that photo and I’m assuming there will be more girls on the fold out. It makes great sense to have a model cover for US Vogue at this time, it feels right. Could not be happier and so glad that all the speculation in the Cover Rumor Thread didn’t amount to nothing.”
Is this the best cover image of the season? Not really, but the fact that U.S. Vogue has finally put young, fresh models on its cover again is reason enough to be deliriously happy about this. Hallelujah!
YAAS MODELS rumor has it it's a foldout with more models
Fightin' Fanboys: WWE Superstar Roman Reigns
The WWE powerhouse gets ready for SummerSlam, lets us in on what signature move he borrowed from Thor, plus much more!
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns wouldn’t look at all out of place in the Marvel Universe, and to hear him tell it, he’d relish fighting alongside the likes of Thor or mixing it up with the God of Thunder.
This Sunday on the WWE Network and pay-per-view outlets, Reigns takes on the biggest challenge of his singles career since breaking away from his previous group, the Shield, as he faces former World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton at SummerSlam. Before that, he’ll be part of the SummerSlam Confidential panel to reveal the roster for “WWE 2K15.”
Prior to his busy weekend, Reigns talked to us about SummerSlam expectations, Marvel movies, and much more.
Marvel.com: SummerSlam is one of WWE’s biggest shows of the year, maybe the biggest outside of WrestleMania, and you’re going to be a big part of this year’s edition on Sunday. How are you feeling as it gets close?
Roman Reigns: Last year [the Shield was] on pretty much every pay-per-view except SummerSlam. That was a tough pill to swallow for us. In a sense, we felt a little disrespected. Like, “You’re not putting The Shield on the card?” The Kick-Off is great because so many more people are probably going to see that anyways and there’s nothing like a fresh, hot crowd. To be out there first, the crowd is unbelievable. So much energy. But at the same time, everyone should want to be the main event of every show so we felt a bit disrespected. For me, this is going to be a nice feeling to turn it around and have a big singles match and definitely be on the card and hopefully make a bunch of memories and create some history Sunday.
Roman Reigns: Absolutely. There’s nothing better than an action-packed, sci-fi, crazy graphics movie.
Marvel.com: Have you gotten to see “Guardians of the Galaxy” with Batista yet?
Roman Reigns: I haven't but I’ve heard so many cool things about it. Just a great mix of comedy and action so I’m really looking forward to it. I heard Dave did a great job along with everybody else in the picture so it should be a good watch.
Marvel.com: Are there any Marvel characters in particular that resonated with you?
Roman Reigns: Iron Man, Thor; Captain America is pretty cool. For me, he’s tough to get into because he’s such a nerd, but at the same time, he’s a badass and he holds it down.
One thing that’s pretty cool is actually before I do the Superman Punch, when I hit the ground I was heavily influenced by Thor with the big hammer swing down to the ground. There [are] a lot of cool things you can watch. You can watch those fight scenes and see really cool sequences. These are all things we can use. For me, it’s extremely entertaining to watch these movies and they kind of help you get lost. It kind of relates to what we do. A lot of our fans get lost in what we do and kind of picture themselves doing it. When you’re watching a Marvel movie, you can do the exact same thing. You have two and a half hours to just be somebody else. Make believe you’re Spider-Man or Thor or Iron Man. Nothing cooler than thinking you’re Iron Man, right?
Marvel.com: A lot of fans of your product are fans of our product as well. Just the larger-than-life, good vs. evil thing is something that I gravitate to myself. Is that something that you can understand?
Roman Reigns: Absolutely. It’s like you said, it’s storytelling, what we’re doing. And it’s the oldest story in the book: good vs. evil. It makes for great energy. If you ever see a couple of bad guys pair off in the ring or in any situation, the interest level may not be completely there. Same with a couple of good guys. But you take the loved good guy and he’s fighting against that evil hated bad guy, there’s nothing better as far as a crowd response than that situation It’s the oldest story out there and it still works. It’s an oldie but a goodie.

Studio Ghibli's classic animated films Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery Service are headed to blu-ray this November.
As first noted by Stitch Kingdom, both films, which are directed by animation legend Hayao Miyazaki, are now listed on Amazon.com for pre-order with November 18 release dates.
Disney, who distributes the films in the North America, has been slowly giving Studio Ghibli's library of classic films Blu-ray releases. Films like My Neighbor Totoro, Whisper of the Heart and Howl's Moving Castle have all been released on Blu-ray previously. Curiously, Spirted Away, which is arguably Miyazaki's most popular film in the west, has yet to be released in HD.
1997's Princess Mononoke tells the story of a boy from a remote tribe who is infected with a curse and must travel to civilization to find a cure. He instead finds himself embroiled in a war between an industrialized city and the spirits of the forest that borders it.
1989's Kiki's Delivery Service is a more light-hearted story, targeted at a younger audience. The story follows a young witch living out her required year of independence. She struggles to fit in to a normal community and begins working as a an air courier.
Miyazaki recently announced his retirement from animation. Studio Ghibli announced that they would be taking a hiatus from producing new animated works to focus on managing their existing properties.
