Martina Navratilova proposes to girlfriend Julia Lemigova at U.S. Open
The tennis superstar surprised her partner at the New York City tennis tournament with an engagement ring on Saturday.
Martina Navratilova is engaged!
The retired tennis superstar proposed to her girlfriend Julia Lemigova while the two were attending the U.S. Open on Saturday.
Navratilova was working as a color commentator at the New York-based tennis tournament, and proposed while on break from her duties.
According to People, the 57-year-old was being interviewed by Ken Solomon in the Tennis Channel suite when she made her big move, getting down on one knee and proffering an engagement ring.
After Lemigova, 42, said yes, the lovebirds celebrated with a champagne toast.
The couple’s engagement was also broadcast on the U.S. Open Jumbotron at Arthur Ashe Stadium, according to People.
After popping the question, Navratilova thanked fans for their congratulations on Twitter:
Thanks everyone for your good wishes- I am very happy, so is Julia and our whole family:)— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) September 6, 2014

The term modelizer might have been made famous by an episode of Sex and the City, but the concept—men who date only models—is, unsurprisingly, very much grounded in reality. Here, we take a look at the gents, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and Adam Levine, who gaze beyond the ready-to-wear to the beautiful women on the runway.
First, an insider revealed this on the Pulse Music forum
"Just popping by to say hi! :) Oh and that my friend that works at RCA supposedly heard like 5 new Britney songs at a listening session and said supposedly she's already recording a new album. I don't know this friend all that well, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has given me lots of free swag...vinyls, promo posters, etc. I totally thought she was gonna retire after Vegas.
Trust me, I am too. As I said, I don't know how accurate any of this is - I just thought I'd share what I'd heard. This friend also doesn't even like Britney much, and apparently he said the tracks he heard were really good. I want to be cautiously optimistic that her team realizes how badly BJ bombed and are looking to right the course of the ship, maybe halfway through her Vegas gig to renew the interest, but who knows. Anyway, I'm glad to have at least sparked some conversation."
Then a second insider revealed some even more interesting news over at PopJustice forums
In reply to this
Assuming that the EP (OR A NEW ALBUM!!!!11!1!!!) will be out before Xmas, I guess we could hear new music in the next month?
Yes, we will.
And then went on more detail..
I don't have any info on the quality of the newly recorded material, but there are quite a few gems from the BJ era that didn't make the cut after Will.I.Am took over and him and the label went for a different approach. 1 song produced by Danja and 2 by Darkchild, which do deserve the stamp "Blackout 2.0". I know that A&R for this new project is nearly completed and that no Executive Producer has been assigned, which either means that it's going to be Britney herself or her A&R team at RCA.
No info for a release date this year (might I add that Britney herself would like to pull a "Beyoncé", which her label is not sure about), but new music will be heard this year.
There's plenty of amazing stuff on the cutting floor that she's going to use. And she already recorded some stuff a few months ago.
If we really get what Britney wants, then it's a mixture of Blackout and BJ. And with BJ I mean the sound of "Don't Cry", "Hold on Tight" and "Perfume". (aka the best songs yaaasss)
Replying to this: Does this mean that songs have been chosen for the final record or just that she has a bunch of demos?
She has a bunch of demos, but they already decided which are for keeps and which not.
I find it hard to believe that there were "great" songs left on the cutting room floor when we got Britney Jean.
R: Not just great. Amazing! Very different from the sound that ended up on BJ, but absolute bangers!
I agree in a way. I think Britney needs a smash lead single to get people excited for her after Britney Jean. Just releasing an album with no prior warning might not go over well, sales wise. I'd be here for it though, solely for the excitement of waking up one morning to see that a new Britney album has appeared on iTunes.
R: A single will be dropped first, definitely! But there are plans to release the album out of the blue!
Quvenzhané Wallis and Salma Hayek.
Awww, Salma's so tiny. Lil Q looks the same height as her.
Paramount Pictures is amping up its rebooted “Terminator” franchise, dating two sequels to “Terminator: Genisys,” which opens July 1.
The studio has dated “Terminator 2″ for May 19, 2017, and “Terminator 3″ on June 29, 2018.
“Terminator 2″ is the first film to land on that date. “Terminator 3″ will open against an untitled Fox/DreamWorks Animation/Blue Sky film.
Paramount is partnered with David Ellison’s Skydance on the rebooted franchise, which launched in 1984 with James Cameron directing Arnold Schwarzenegger as the iconic cyborg.
“Terminator: Genisys,” the fifth installment in the franchise, is directed by Alan Taylor from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. Schwarzenegger will reprise his role along with Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee and J. K. Simmons.
In 2012, David Ellison agreed to partner with sibling Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures following their joint acquistion of rights from Pacificor, which, acquired the rights in a bankruptcy court auction in early 2010 over objections from Sony and Lionsgate. In early 2014, Megan Ellison decided to pull out of the reboot project.
“Terminator Salvation,” the fourth film in the franchise, was produced by Halcyon toppers Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson with Warner Bros. handling domestic distribution and Sony taking international. It carried a production pricetag of about $200 million and took in $371 million worldwide in 2009.
A spokeswoman for Annapurna said in 2012 that under new copyright rules, North American rights to The Terminator franchise could revert back to creator James Cameron in 2019 — 35 years after the original “Terminator” was released.
Hey, another reboot with sequels, yay! Are you excited as I am?!
Can you imagine Emilia Clarke doing the body transformation to turn into T2: JD's Sarah Connor?
The Veronicas have revealed they came to blows in the studio over their risky comeback single You Ruin Me. Lisa and Jess Origliasso had a sisterly spat over who would sing the verses on the emotionally-charged song, their first new music in two years.
The siblings’ career was on hold indefinitely after restructuring of their American label left their long-awaited 2012 album, Life on Mars, on the shelf. They finally extricated themselves from the multi-million dollar deal they won a decade ago and have now signed to Sony worldwide.
The Veronicas were readying a pop return to the airwaves when they decided to write one more song at a Sydney studio with local (s)hitmakers DNA just six weeks ago. Anger at ex-boyfriends and the messy legal manoeuvrings which stymied their career for several years inspired You Ruin Me. The women had finished their record and were about to film the video for another song when they decided on a late-night songwriting session.
After bashing out a couple of upbeat pop songs — and a couple of wines — Lisa suggested they return to the studio just before midnight and “just write a song for us”. By 1.30am, it was done.
“Lisa and I did have a punch-up fighting about who was going to sing the verses and the DNA boys had to referee,” Jess said, laughing. “We are in such a great place now as far as being artists and being comfortable as women and this song was the last piece of the puzzle to say goodbye to the broken parts of ourselves. And it’s about heartbreak, something Lisa was going through which I could relate to hugely from my past relationships.”
The raw honesty of Lisa’s vocal performance — you can hear her voice crack a couple of times during You Ruin Me — prompted their label to take a chance on the power ballad.
“We have never released a ballad before as a single but it’s time to not do what people expect,” Jess said. "I listen to the radio a lot and can’t stand half the shit I hear because it is contrived and geared towards an image rather than the enjoyment of music. I get the pop industry but I am proud we have put our hearts into this.”
You Ruin Me will hit the airwaves next Thursday and is released on September 19 with their third record expected in November.
The Veronicas sold more than half a million copies of their first two albums The Secret Life Of and Hook Me Up here and were the first Australian act to hit the million downloads mark with the Hook Me Up single.
Jess said they plan on reconnecting with patient fans who have waited seven years for their third record by “hitting the road”.
“A small but very dedicated fanbase have been hanging in there and their incredible energy has been the thing that kept us going,” she said.
We have lost a bright star in K-pop.
Ladies’ Code member RiSe has passed away at the age of 23.
Ladies’ Code’s management agency, Polaris Entertainment, stated, “Kwon RiSe went to heaven on September 7, 10:10 a.m.”
It continued, “Although every attempt at surgery and treatment was tried after she sustained serious injury to her head during the accident that occurred in the early morning of September 3, RiSe drew her final breath.”
It is reported that her parents, who came from Japan, and her agency staff members were by RiSe’s side until the last moment.
Polaris Entertainment also notified that the location of RiSe’s wake has not been decided yet. It added, “We cannot hold back our apologies and also our grief in relaying this sad news following the news of EunB. We ask that many pray for these two members and for the remaining members, as well, who are most saddened.
The Soompi staff offer our deepest condolences to RiSe’s family, friends, the Polaris family, and Ladies’ Code members.
R.I.P., Kwon RiSe.
Rise is the second member of Ladies Code to pass away because of this car crash, another member EunB died 4 days ago: http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/90792741.html
Jennifer Lawrence was among the celebrities targeted in a massive photo hack.
On Saturday, Reddit took down r/TheFappening, a page where people had been sharing nude celebrity photos that were hacked and released last week.
According to johnsmcjohn, the user who claims to have created the page, it received “more than 250,000,000 page views in less than a week.”
Saturday evening, johnsmcjohn answered questions about r/TheFappening being banned:
Johnsmcjohn wrote that he was not happy Reddit took the page down, and believed it was due to pressure from the company’s lawyers. He went on to say that he created r/TheFappening while using r/Celebs, another Reddit page devoted to celebrities. He wrote Saturday that r/TheFappening then went on to see explosive growth:
"I created /r/TheFappening on sunday, and while I didn’t intend for it to be the fastest growing sub in history, it was. I want to point out that our mod team worked their asses off to ensure that pics that violated reddit’s rules were removed. And we prevented the doxx of the “leaker” as well. I know we aren’t going to be considered the good guys, but we worked hard to ensure reddit’s rules were followed."
In a statement on Reddit’s blog, the site explained it’s reasons for taking down the page:
"While current US law does not prohibit linking to stolen materials, we deplore the theft of these images and we do not condone their widespread distribution.
Nevertheless, reddit’s platform is structurally based on the ability for people to distribute, promote, and highlight textual materials as well as links to images and other media. We understand the harm that misusing our site does to the victims of this theft, and we deeply sympathize.
Having said that, we are unlikely to make changes to our existing site content policies in response to this specific event.
The reason is because we consider ourselves not just a company running a website where one can post links and discuss them, but the government of a new type of community. The role and responsibility of a government differs from that of a private corporation, in that it exercises restraint in the usage of its powers."
After the photos leaked last week, participants of r/TheFappening began a pair of donation pages.

Andre Holland on ‘The Knick’
By FRED TOPEL
CraveOnline: John and Mark said Algernon was not based on the story Flowers for Algernon but did you think of that when you played the character?
Andre Holland: You know, actually the thing that came to mind for me was Algernon in Oscar Wilde’s play. That’s the only other time I heard that name, but then I thought about Flowers for Algernon. I don’t know how they came up with the name but I don’t think they were trying to focus on anywhere in particular.
It seemed like by episode two, Algernon became very patient with discrimination.
Well, I don’t think he becomes patient with it, but I think he understands how big the task is. I think he understands this is not something that’s going to be solved in a day, so he starts finding subversive ways to get around it.
Does that translate into his bedside manner, where he’s better able to handle perhaps hostile patients?
That’s a good question. I don’t think so. I think that he’s a patient person by nature and I think he actually has good bedside manner, which I don’t think that Thackery does. Throughout the whole thing, it’s always a challenge because the patients, both black and white, are shocked at the fact that he’s actually a surgeon and it’s the first time for them seeing a black surgeon. I think they’re all a little bit scared of it. But, I think after dealing with the number of patients who are like that, he kind of begins to understand going into it that okay, they’re going to be a little freaked out. Maybe in episode six or seven he starts to say to patients, “Don’t be alarmed. I’m going to touch you.” Anyway, I think it just becomes a part of his life.
What sort of interesting surgical cases does Algernon have?
Oh man, he does a lot. He does a hernia. He operates in a hernia. He works on Ida Harris, the woman with the swollen arm.
She went to the other hospital. So she comes back.
I don’t want to spoil it for you, man.
No, I can imagine how we’d see her again.
Yeah, there’s a number of things. He also works in The Knick as well assisting with some things. There are some heart procedures that happen. There’s an eye. There’s all kinds of things, tons of different surgical procedures but he’s pretty proficient at all of them.
Is Thackery in some ways right that the medical field is not the right place to talk about social progress and integration? That by the time things get as tense as they are in a hospital, that might not be the ideal place for social progress? It’s complicated.
From his point of view I can understand, because he has a vested interest in the success of the hospital and the hospital’s already struggling financially, so I can understand his point of view. But at the same time, I think that, like Dr. King says, if not now, when? If you wait for an ideal time to make a change, to deal with issues, then I don’t know if that time will ever come.
I was thinking more that people who are dying just aren’t as open minded as they might be in good health.
I see what you mean. Yeah, sure. If it was a case of there’s a patient who needs help, we don’t want to try some experiment on this person. We want to actually save their lives, but from Algernon’s point of view, he actually is one of the finest surgeons in the world. It would actually make sense to have him help.
It looks so convincing on screen. How realistic is the makeup of the surgery scenes?
Very realistic. I mean, those guys, there were moments when we all got a little squeamish. When the blood starts flowing and you see the organs that look and feel so real, it’s pretty scary. When you touch the bowel, it feels like the real deal.
How does Algernon’s relationship with Thackery progress. Is it always confrontational? Do they have to form an uneasy alliance?
Again, I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say the way it starts, it starts very rough. It gets a lot worse before it gets any better, but it does develop. Even where it’s left at the end of the season, it still has a lot more ground to cover. If we’re fortunate enough to do a season two, I think that relationship is going to be one of the key ones.
I think it’s key now. If season two is 1901, how different will things be for black doctors a year later?
I don’t know. I think New York at that time was changing at such a rapid pace, fast forwarding even a year, the city would be different than it was in 1900. In terms of the black patients, I think that Algernon really is breaking ground in New York City as a black doctor. He’s beginning to get some notoriety and some fame as being this black doctor who people can come to for help. I’m not sure where they’re going to go with that storyline, but I imagine that he’s going to be the guy to see. Especially for African-American patients who need help because I don’t think the hospitals in the city are going to all open their doors and go, “Okay, come on in, guys. We’re here to treat everybody.” He’s going to become more important.
With segregation, Thackery’s equipment is already so bad and faulty. Does Algernon get stuck with even worse equipment?
He does. Yeah, he goes down to the basement and scavenges and gets as much old stuff together as he can, modifies some things. Every once in a while he’ll borrow some things from the hospital upstairs, but he just makes it work.
Are any of his surgeries compromised by that?
There’s one that gets compromised, not because of the equipment but because it’s difficult for him to offer continued care. Because he has a very small space he’s working in, there’s only room really for one patient so he doesn’t have time to let people sit there and recover for the time that they need to. So he has to trust that people will follow his directions and take care of themselves, but he doesn’t realize that these people also have to go to work, they have to make a living for themselves. So sometimes things get a little tricky in that way, but not because of the equipment. Just because of the difficulty of the whole situation.

Eve Hewson Talks THE KNICK, the Gory Surgery Scenes, Steven Soderbergh, and Her Love of E.T.
By CHRISTINA RADISH
Had you been looking for a project where you could explore a character more long-term?
HEWSON: It’s funny because when I first met with Carmen [Cuba, casting director], she said, “Have you ever thought about doing TV?” And I was like, “No, not really, but I’d audition for TV.” And she said, “That’s where the roles are for women now. That’s where you can go and get a really great part.” Especially for people who are unknown, it’s easier to get a TV show because you don’t have to put a certain amount of people in movie theaters for a box office weekend. It’s really difficult to get a great lead role in some big film, if nobody knows you. So, she said, “You should go do TV. That’s where you can find a great part, and people can learn about you from that.” I don’t even think she knew what was going to come. I had met her in February, and then I think Steven got the script in May and they started casting in June. It was really just a funny coincidence.
What was it like to have Steven Soderbergh there, directing every episode?
HEWSON: It’s amazing because Steven is so focused and so aware of what he wants. He is so in control. He’s the director, the editor and the cinematographer, so he’s thought about absolutely everything, by the time you get onto the set. We also had to move so fast. We did nine pages a day, and we basically did one or two takes. That would have been really scary for me, having not worked on a lot before, with anybody else. But knowing that he trusted me, and if we needed to get another take, we would, and if he liked it, we would move on, gives you a confidence with it. He’s so involved. He’s looking into the camera that’s pointed at you. He’s not off in video village, eating nuts. He’s there, he’s in your face, he’s watching you, and he’s got your back. That was really great. And it was so nice to be able to have a working relationship with him and get to know him. We had that for five months. I loved that part of it. We’re lucky that he’s actually really nice and fun, and everyone wants to hang out with him. He really enjoys what he’s doing. He’s taking a lot of risks, and he’s not scared of failing. I loved working with him.
What was it about this story and character that stood out for you and made you want to be a part of telling this story?
HEWSON: Everything about it stood out. The script was so uncomfortable and really gruesome and off-putting, and I loved that. I love that about film, and that you can make someone squirm in their seat. I was squirming when I was reading it, but I had an adrenaline rush because I feel like that’s what it’s all about. Of course, we’re so lucky to be in a time where that’s not our reality anymore. I just thought it was very interesting to go back to that time now, and to look at all of these issues that are still relevant today, but just in such a different way, and to see how we approach them and try to overcome them. Yeah, we’ve come a long way with medicine and women’s health in the Western world, but in a lot of parts of the rest of the world, that’s still a huge issue. I think it’s really important that people can look at this show and be offended by it. Hopefully, then people will understand that this is still very much a problem we need to solve in other parts of the world. At least we have antibiotics.
What can you say about who Lucy Elkins and how she came to be a nurse?
HEWSON: It wasn’t a profession that was respected, in any way, but at that point, they were trying to make it respectable. The origin of nursing started out with prostitutes, who would go care for people in jail. That was back when nobody wanted to go to the hospital because it was basically a place that you went to die. It started progressing with the visiting nurses in the South. The women started wearing these outfits to make it look like they were more sophisticated and so that they could be more respected. They started recruiting women from good education backgrounds because they wanted to make it a more respected profession. Back then though, you had a few months of training, and then you were just thrown into it. So, anyone could really be a nurse, and that’s the case with Lucy. She moved to New York to be a nurse because she wanted the excitement of living in a city, but she doesn’t know anything, and it’s not really her fault. She’s just thrown into the deep end. Underneath it all, she’s looking for that excitement. She’s not just a scared girl. She’s there and she’s put herself in this situation for a reason.
There’s an interesting power play between Lucy and Dr. Thackery, who seems to like to use his position of power to get people to do what he wants them to.
HEWSON: And she’s definitely the kind of person that wants to be told what to do because she gets off on that. It is an interesting heightened situation. I couldn’t imagine working in a hospital where there’s just death, everywhere. But for a lot of women, it was their only option. They couldn’t get other jobs. Even though Lucy is pretty freaked out and scared shitless in the first episode, she did move from West Virginia to New York. She is a lot bolder than you would expect. I really liked playing someone that had that excitement underneath her.
As she finds her footing, does she get stronger and more self-assured?
HEWSON: Yeah, she does. She gets herself into a lot of trouble, but she wants to get herself into a lot of trouble. That’s the whole thing.
What can you say about how the relationship between Lucy and Dr. Thackery evolves?
HEWSON: In the first episode, he embarrasses and humiliates her, in front of everybody, and that set the tone for a very complicated relationship. But then, you see him be very vulnerable, and she is the one who has to look after him. I really enjoy that power play that they have between them. You definitely see that go up and down, throughout the season. The way that she communicates with people is in her own funny little way, which I enjoy playing.
What’s the craziest surgery scene you had to shoot?
HEWSON: The placenta praevia cases were the craziest because they had the most blood and they were the most invasive, in terms of cutting up a pregnant woman, reaching inside her stomach and taking out a human. There was some gross stuff, like the bowel repair. That was just nasty because they really did make it look like his intestines were rotting. It was green and full of puss, and it was just vile. We did a heart surgery. In Episode 3, we sewed someone’s arm to their face. We did a skin graft where we had to take a piece of skin from his body and attach it, so that it would grow. There was a lot of really gory, gross stuff. Every day, we would be like, “Oh, my god, this is a big day! We’re operating on this person.” There was no dull moment, at all.
Is it hard not to be grossed out during those scenes?
HEWSON: There have been a few moments where Steven had to be like, “Just don’t look at it, Eve!” And I was like, “I’m gonna get sick!” Most of the time, I was actually just really fascinated. I love make-up, and I love special effects make-up, so I was really excited to see how they were going to come up with these crazy prosthetics, and how they were going to get the blood and puss to ooze out, at the right time. The special effects guys were hiding around the corner with their remotes, and pumping stuff into tubes. It was really cool. It’s fascinating. That’s what I love about movies. You get to see the behind-the-scenes.

Josh is wearing a wedding band, are these two married?
Kelly Bensimon was fired from the Real Housewives of New York City three years ago, but she’s not going to be a shoulder for Ramona Singer — who has been reportedly demoted to a recurring role next season — to cry on.
When asked if she’s reached out to Singer, who also is calling it quits with her husband Mario after he allegedly was caught with another woman, Bensimon was precise with her words.
“I haven’t seen Ramona in like two years . . . [except] I saw her a year ago when we were filming,” she says with a smile, referencing a drive-by cameo she had last season.
Bensimon’s still tight with LuAnn de Lesseps, who, in a jaw-dropping moment, told Singer at the reunion that “karma’s a bitch.” (Singer had accused de Lesseps’ husband of cheating on her multiple times.)
“I think that’s the nature of that show, to call people out on good, bad or ugly behavior,” says Bensimon. “So if you’re not nice and something bad happens to you, it’s karma.”

The sentencing of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Joe and Teresa Giudice has been delayed again, from Sept. 23 to Oct. 2.
U.S. District Judge Esther Salas' office postponed the sentencing for the pair, who pleaded guilty to several counts of fraud in March. They were originally scheduled to be sentenced in July. (The "Real Housewives" episode in which the Giudices take their plea deal is set to air Sunday night at 8 p.m. on Bravo.)
The couple was charged with 41 counts of bankruptcy, bank and mortgage fraud, among other alleged crimes. Joe Giudice, who took the bulk of the responsibility for the wrongdoings, faces a sentence of 37 to 46 months under federal sentencing guidelines, while Teresa Giudice could get as much as 27 months in prison, although her lawyer has been making the case for probation only.
The case stems from the couple's 2010 bankruptcy filing, which they abandoned after Joe Giudice pleaded the Fifth Amendment when questioned about hiding assets and income. They still owe $13.4 million to creditors.
Botox epicentres in Sydney and the Gold Coast are reportedly being considered as potential spinoff locations for The Real Housewives Of Melbourne aka All You Other Bitches Better Step The Fuck Down And Kiss The Ring Because I Straight Murder People: The Gina Liano Story.
Per news.com.au: "Sources tell News Corp Australia that makers of the Foxtel series have quietly scoped out both Sydney and the Gold Coast as settings for a potential spin-off. Filming on the second season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne only recently commenced, but it’s understood there is a long-term view to expand the franchise. While that exploration is preliminary at best for now, it suggests producers Matchbox are keen to take the formula to a second setting."
Kylie Washington, series EP and head of unscripted content at Matchbox Pictures, said there's potential for a spinoff. “I think we can handle another,” she said. “It will never be like the States where there are several different franchises running. It’s not sustainable and you don’t want to flood the market. But I think there’s scope to take it (elsewhere).”
“We’d love to do a Housewives everywhere. This show has obviously piqued people’s interest because this is something that hasn’t been explored that much. The voyeuristic side of all of us has been delighted.”

If the Bay Village PD wants to start a reward fund to find who did this, contact me. I'll donate $10k. http://t.co/ugqeLbu5ob— Drew Carey (@DrewFromTV) September 6, 2014
Actor and comedian Drew Carey offered to help Bay Village police find the perpetrators behind a prank played on an autistic teenager.
Via Twitter, Carey said that if the police want to start a reward fund to find the people who organized the prank, he would donate $10,000 to it.
The 14-year-old boy's mother found a cell phone video of several Bay High School students dumping a bucket filled with urine and feces on her son in a twisted rendition of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The video was posted on Instagram.
Bay Village Police Chief Mark Spaetzel called the prank "heinous," and said charges would be brought as soon as police identify the teens who organized the prank.
Bay Village School District faculty sent a letter to students and parents this week informing them of the situation and saying the actions of the teenagers in the video do not reflect the majority of their student body.
The high school organized a vigil for the teen prior to a Friday night football game

Canadian music artist Drake took time out of his joint concert tour with Lil Wayne to meet up with Brazilian stars Neymar, Willian and Marcelo in Miami.
The Started From The Bottom rapper posed with members of Brazil's squad - with one of the pictures showing Drake holding up a Neymar No 11 Barcelona shirt.
Brazil are currently training in America ahead of their next friendly match against Ecuador in New Jersey on Wednesday.
The 2014 World Cup hosts came up against fellow South Americans Colombia at the Sun Life Gardens in Florida during the early hours of Saturday morning.
Neymar, who captained Brazil for the first time since being given the armband on a permanent basis by national team boss Dunga, scored the only goal of the game in the 83rd minute to hand his side the win.
The 22-year-old forward showed he was over his World Cup heartache by accepting an apology from Colombia defender Juan Zuniga - the man who played a part in his premature end to his participation at the tournament.
That COL v. BRA 'friendly' was so messy. Thought Drizzy was a Chelsea fan tho. Would still let him, Marcelo and Neymar go to work at the same time👉👌👉👌
You’ve already gotten your wand and been sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses. So what else could you learn about your wizarding self in the online Pottermore game? How about finding out the form of your Patronus?
There’s nothing official yet, but author JK Rowling hinted at the idea while answering a slew of fan questions on Twitter today.
For those of you who aren’t huge Potter fans or who haven’t yet made it to Prisoner of Azkaban, the Patronus Charm is conjured to battle a Dementor, a creature who feeds off of human happiness by sucking it out of them, and leaving the person feeling nothing but sadness and depression. When a corporeal Patronus is cast it takes the form of an animal, based on the personality of the person casting it. Harry’s is a stag, Hermione’s an otter, and Ron’s Patronus is a dog (specifically, a Jack Russel Terrier).
Since there’s no information on a Patronus test so far, there’s no way to know how Pottermore would go about choosing your Patronus’ form, or how many options there would be. But if it’s anything like the wand and Sorting tests, we could be looking at another questionnaire of choices based on our ambitions, fears, and personal preferences.
Would you like to know your official Patronus? What do you think it would be?
time for everyone to start trying to figure out what their user names even are lol
