Season 8 of Game of Thrones will premiere on April 14. While we’re waiting, here’s Sophie Turner at Madison Square Garden caught on camera. Of course, that meant she has to do something interesting because monkey needs to dance! And so she does a half-hearted dab before downing her $11+ glass of wine. Celebrities. They’re just as awkward as us!
Then there’s Rami Malek. I’m not sure what he was trying to do when the camera caught him at MSG. I think he short circuited.

As of 12:02 a.m. today, 20th Century Fox is no more, it’s now just a part of Disney. To most of the public, this means that the X-Men and Fantastic Four are about to take over the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Deadpool gets a fun little hat.

Here’s what’s really going to happen: 4,000 people are going to lose their jobs and one company now controls basically all of entertainment. And that company wants people to think if it as being “family-friendly” and basically only makes PG or PG-13 films, something they doubled down on when they sold Miramax, although they refused to let Miramax release Fahrenheit 9/11 and Dogma when they did own them, so that’s the future of the studio that now owns half of all movies; they will not release anything edgy or controversial.
For the most part, anyway. Disney recently rehired James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 and said they would continue making R-rated Deadpool movies, because given the choice between their family friendly image and making a guaranteed billion dollars, they would like the billion dollars please.
One thing to look for is an announcement in the coming days and weeks of the fate of Fox’s final X-Men film, The New Mutants. I would be shocked if this movie played in more than 6 theaters. It is a horror film with a lesbian couple in it, there is just no way Disney screens that. They have carefully cut any reference to characters not being 100% heterosexual from every Marvel movie that directors have included them in, and I’m pretty sure the only gay characters in any Marvel TV or film property is in Runaways, which they’ve basically buried on Hulu with no promotion. I saw more commercials for Cloak and Dagger. Fox actually has 12 movies scheduled to come out this year, and Disney may pull some or all of them, like the R-Rated Kingsman sequel scheduled for November.
By the way, this merger creating the largest media conglomerate in the history of the world, was basically only done so Disney could launch a streaming service with enough content to rival Netflix. The fact that Fox was squatting on the film rights to properties Disney really wanted was just sweetening the deal, they could have bought those back for way less than $70 billion.
Streaming is really a battle for the future of entertainment right now, everything revolves around streaming. There is no one on the planet who thinks that cable television works better than Netflix, aside from not asking you if you’re still watching every twenty minutes. $13 a month to just watch what you want, when you want with no commercials is much better than $200 a month to watch only what’s on and 1/3 of it is commercials. But it’s also a much more limited space, people aren’t going to pay for five or ten streaming services, most of them are going to get choked out of the market. I’m looking at you CBS All Access and DC Universe. No one loves you. Warner Brothers is actually trying to launch a second streaming service on top of DC Universe. So Disney wants to come out strong with Disney+, so much so that they’re ending the “Disney Vault” to put all their movies on it (aside from Song of the South, I’m sure) and they bought an entire other movie and TV studio to make it work.
So when there’s six corporations left and they’ve replaced governments, remember that it all started because Bob Iger didn’t think Darkwing Duck could compete with Netflix.

Cardi B has basically conquered the world of music by becoming the best rapper in the world, so now she’s going into acting. She’s going to really stretch her acting muscles by playing a stripper. Jennifer Lopez made the announcement on her Instagram feed, which seems weird, usually these things come out in the trades.
This movie is going to be something to see, I think. It’s called The Hustlers at Scores and it’s based on a true story about a group of strippers who decided that they’re better than their clients so they decide to drug and rob them of tens of thousands of dollars. They also hired prostitutes to work for them because they were too good to sleep with the guys they were robbing. It’s seriously such a funny story, here’s a quote from one of the women offended at the idea that the idea to drug and rob men wasn’t their own, from the New York Magazine article that the movie is based on.
And although Rosie maintains that the group would occasionally swipe credit cards through Scores’ funny-money machine, she rejects the suggestion, made by some, that anyone at Scores was the driving force behind the scheme. “Nobody put us up to anything!” she snapped at me when I suggested it. “We are strong women who don’t fucking take shit from nobody.”
Oh, and this one.
Samantha had a soft spot for ex-strippers with problems — not the kind of girls Rosie trusted. “When I’m doing business with somebody, I want stand-up people, not junkies and criminals,” she told me. “People that have morals and principles.”
Bitch, you’re a criminal. You’re a pimp and thief. I think Cardi B is going to be great in this, she’s got the perfect attitude to play a stripper who robs people while also thinking she’s way better than everyone else.

Despite -- or perhaps because of -- the fact that she and her husband no longer appear on Counting On, fan interest in the life of Jill Duggar has reached an all-time high in recent months.
As you may recall, Jill's husband, Derick Dillard, got fired from the show after he launched a transphobic tirade at fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.
Shortly thereafter, Jill quit Counting On as a gesture of solidarity.
It may seem surprising, given that the move left the Dillards with two kids to support and no visible source of income, but it was in keeping with the deep sense of patriarchal deference the Duggar women were raised with.
Yes, in the beginning, Jill and Derick followed the typical blueprint for a Duggar couple.
But somewhere along the line, they lost the plot ...
The most obvious way in which Jill and Derick have strayed from the Duggar playbook is no that they no longer take part in the lucrative family media empire.
But now that younger sister Jessa Duggar is pregnant with her third child, fans have picked up on another bit of anamolous behavior, as well.
Derick and Jill have two kids, ages 1 and 3.
That's not so unusual for a young couple, but Duggar girls are taught from a young age that procreation is their primary reason for being.
As a result, many are surprised by the fact that Jill is nearly 28, and her 5-year marriage has yielded only two children.
The most obvious explanation is that Jill and Derick simply can't afford to expand their family due to their lack of income.
But Duggar obsessives on Reddit think there's more to the story.
Jill's first two deliveries were C-sections, and in both cases, she was forced to abandon plans for a homebirth following excruciatingly long labors.
One Reddit user with medical experience explained the situation thusly:
“Just to add a bit of info to this, the major concern with subsequent cesarean deliveries is placenta accreta, meaning the placenta attaches too deeply into the uterus,” they wrote.
“This is a major problem because so much blood flows through the placenta (600-700mL/minute, or about 10% of a pregnant woman’s total blood volume).
"This means that an improperly managed accreta could lead to the mother bleeding to death in a matter of minutes.”
Yikes. The Duggars may be throroughly committed to the idea of siring massive broods (they even consider it a religious mandate), but we're guessing even they would draw the line at a potentially deadly delivery.
After all, obvious drawbacks aside, Jill dying while defying her doctor's orders would be seriously bad for the brand.

The CW’s teen sex party series Riverdale is still on a tear of hot primetime lesbian action. Thank God. To say that the producers of the Archie comics-inspired show have no chill is an understatement, and fifteen episodes into the third season, the busty redhead Madelaine Petsch delivered ample high school cleavage while swapping spit with hottie Vanessa Morgan. Again, thank God. Riverdale’s lack of shame has upped the anti for other thirsty CW shows, so hopefully it isn’t long until everything over there is just, ya know, porn. Thanks, Riverdale, for the river of tail!

Marrying into the British Royal Family is a unique -- and uniquely daunting -- experience.
Sure, your new royal title comes with its fair share of perks, but in many ways, your life is no longer your own.
Look at Meghan Markle's situation, for example.
She's a 37-year-old self-made millionaire who's about to welcome her first child.
She's a duchess, married to one of the most sought-after men on the planet, and she's high on the list of the world's most recognizable celebs.
And yet, when Meghan wants to strike out on her own and carve a new path for her growing family, she has to ask permission from a 92-year-old woman.
And in this case, the 92-year-old woman hit Meg with a hard "hell no."
As you may have heard, Meghan and Harry have relocated to Frogmore Cottage.
It was a controversial move, as the original plan was for the couple to continue living in Kensington Palace nearby Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The move bolstered rumors of a feud between Meghan and Kate, but it's possible the Duke and Duchess of Sussex just wanted a bit more space of their own, what with them being as a married couple in their thirties with a kid on the way.
The Sussexes needed the Queen's permission in order to relocate, and while she consented, it seems she wasn't thrilled about the move.
According to a new report from London's Sunday Times, Meg and Harry "lobbied for an autonomous new court" that would operate from their home at Frogmore.
But apparently, the Queen and her son Prince Charles basically told Meg and Harry to get used to commuting, because the couple has been denied funding for such an office.
It's all a bit confusing, but basically, the Queen grudgingly granted the Sussexes permission to move out of London, but they will not be permitted to attend to their royal duties way out in the boonies of Frogmore.
Prior to Meg and Harry's move, Buckingham Palace issued a statement confirming that the Queen "has agreed to the creation of a new household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year.
"The household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and the Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring."
So these two got what they wanted in terms of living arrangements.
But as for work, it seems they'll continue sharing office space with Will and Kate.
"The Duke of Sussex currently has his own private office, which has been supporting The Duchess since the engagement of Their Royal Highnesses in November 2017," the statement continued.
"This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess's work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage."
In order to cover up the fact that Meg and Harry have been publicly rebuffed, the statement added that the Queen has "given permission for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to base their Household Office at Buckingham Palace,"
In other words, they were "granted permission" to continue doing what they'd already been doing.
Like we said, royal life ain't all it's cracked up to be.
And unfortunately, even duchesses can't behead their in-laws.
I’ve always loved the notion of a muse, a woman who just basically exists for a creative type to get their juices flowing. It seems like a pretty good gig, with little involved other than being a supremely hot woman who can inspire the creative process like no other. It’s why Muse is the perfect surname for Calypso Muse, because she seems like the kind of woman who was just born to serve as inspiration.
I’m getting all manner of urges to write the great American novel or to compose an epic poem in the vein of Ode on a Grecian Urn, only this time, it wouldn’t be about some boring old vase but rather a beautiful ode to the beautiful Calypso Muse. Something like Shakespeare’s 18th sonnet, but with the word boobs in it.
Man, now that the creative juices are flowing, I’d better stop spilling digital ink on this platform and set to work on something that matters. Something that will stand the test of time. Something that will do justice to the enormity of Calypso Muse’s incomparable beauty. Ah, who am I kidding, I could never do her any justice. Better to let the pictures do the thousand of words worth of talking.

There’s nothing quite like a day spent at the beach watching a sexy woman doing yoga, and even better when said sexy woman is Rachel McCord. Rachel recently did a little chi focusing and downward dogged her way into a day doing yoga at the beach in a hot pink bikini, making for one of the sexiest spectacles we’ve seen at the beach in quite some time.
Usually yoga is reserved for hot, smelly studios where there’s an unhealthy male to female ratio, and you end up not being able to enjoy all of the flexible women in tight yoga pants. Thankfully, Rachel McCord had the right idea and went to the beach where the sand adds a degree of difficulty one cannot get in a studio, not to mention all the additional fringe benefits that we get to reap as a result.
So the next time you see a hot woman heading into some gross yoga studio in the local strip mall, advise her to head to the beach like Rachel McCord. After all, no one can admire the beauty of yoga in a cramped, poorly lit studio. Better to get down to the beach, like Rachel, and show us all what you’re working with!

While not everything she does is successful, I’ve always admired Natalie Portman’s ability to take big risks in smaller films: Black Swan, Jackie, Annihilation, and Vox Lux. Her next venture, Lucy in the Sky, is right in line with those finding Portman’s character as she returns from a NASA space mission to her regular life, where she may or may not be losing her grip on reality. Good rule of thumb, if you’re worried that you’re losing your grip on reality, chances are you already have.
The film marks the feature directorial debut of Fargo and Legion creator/showrunner Noah Hawley, whose much ballyhooed script for a Doctor Doom movie has been kicking around for a while and is purported to be his next directorial effort. It will be interesting to see if Lucy in the Sky will be considered a barometer for that film. I’m sure if this one is successful, it will only work in Doom’s favor.
In the meantime, though, it looks like we’ve got a pretty interesting film on our hands here. I think this has plenty of potential and looks like it might be another high concept winner for Portman. There’s no official release date set for Lucy in the Sky, but don’t be surprised if it lands in the middle of next year’s Oscar race.
