If you watched Ryan Gosling host Saturday Night Live this past weekend, you’ll know that he’s not very good at staying in character. I don’t think a single sketch went by that didn’t have him break for laughter in the middle of it. It was cute at first. Then it was like, “How do they ever get through filming a movie with you laughing every three seconds?” Then it became cute again because Ryan Gosling is adorable.
So, it wasn’t surprising to see him laugh his way through this interview on This Morning with Alison Hammond.
Seeing Harrison Ford cracking up the entire time is a different story. He’s usually a bit more serious during interviews.
If this isn’t proof that laughing is contagious, I don’t know what it is. It’s tough to remain straight-faced when Gosling is turning fifty shades of red and Hammond is laughing so loud she’s waking the country next to her.
I had never heard of Alison Hammond prior to this interview but she’s my new favorite person in entertainment. She seems super fun to be around and makes the guests pretty comfortable. It probably helps that they’re allowed to drink and she doesn’t mind drinking herself. Even though she says at the end that she doesn’t drink.
It also helps that she’s honest from the jump, admitting that she’s never seen the original Blade Runner. That means she’s not there to kiss their ass and tell them how great the original was and how great the new one is. She’s just there to have fun and get some stories.
And she gets some stories.
Gosling talks about Ford punching him in the face during filming, Ford admits that he can’t dance or sing, and they try to harmonize.
This interview not only sold me on seeing Blade Runner 2049, it has me wanting a buddy comedy with Ford, Gosling, and Hammond.
Get on it, Hollywood.
Justin Bieber wants to live in Beverly Hills, but no one will rent him a home because he’s a giant douchebag who destroys rental properties and is a nightmare to live by. Bieber has a history of things like wild parties that result in the cops being called, egging his neighbor’s houses, and signing the guestbook of the Anne Frank House with “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.” Okay, that last one wouldn’t affect property values, it’s just more proof that he’s an insufferable douche.
Page Six is reporting that Bieber’s douchebaggedness has caught up with him and the rental owners of Beverly Hills have all come together and agreed to freeze Bieber out of the rental market.
A Hollywood real estate source exclusively told Page Six, “Justin wants to rent a big estate, but many of the owners of the big Beverly Hills properties, which are for rent, have clubbed together to agree that nobody should rent to Justin.
“You would think that they would want the cachet of having him at their homes — and Justin is offering $100,000 a month for places that aren’t anywhere near worth that. But he and his entourage have a reputation of trashing his rental homes and then being difficult where it comes to paying for the repairs.
“So instead he’s become a resident at a hotel, where the well-heeled guests have been doing double takes seeing him at breakfast on his own with his tattoos and baggy pants.”
So Justin Bieber is living in an upscale hotel now. That kind of sounds like the plot of a sitcom. “The guests at L’hotel think it’s the most exclusive residence in Beverly Hills, but wait until they meet their new neighbor, a douchey Canadian singer who skateboards around like it’s 1996.” That skateboard thing isn’t even made up.
Meanwhile, back at his Beverly Hills hotel, other guests have been stunned to see the singer skateboarding out of the property.
Who does that? Call an Uber, you tool.
We’ve heard a lot of reports about Hugh Hefner since he died, like that he didn’t leave his wife anything in his will and that his ears didn’t work because he took too many pills to make his wrinkled old man dick work. But the most interesting things said about Hef might be what his former valet Stefan Tetenbaum told the New York Post. And just an aside, that’s valet as in My Man Jeeves or Downton Abbey, not the kind that parks your car.
On certain nights, Mr. Hefner had prostitutes brought up to the mansion and he would entertain them with a big dinner and invite his friends to come and participate in different intimate acts with them. It was called “Pig Night.” Sometimes the women had penises and Hefner didn’t want to be involved with that, although some of the other guests, especially John Belushi, they didn’t mind.
So Hef was like a guy at a bar when he had a kid, buying a round of drinks for everyone. Only “drinks” means “transgender prostitutes”. Which could be a useful code.
Hugh, most of the time, never had sex with women. He was more interested in watching. He would hire famous male porn stars, including John Holmes, with huge penises and watch them have sex with different girls he brought in. Hugh sat there in his favorite chair, smoking a joint and eating red licorice and watching.
Okay, I don’t want to judge, but that’s kind of messed up. Also, John Holmes died of AIDS, so it’s probably for the best that Hef was just watching. Personally, I would have had to at least touched it. That thing was like a baseball bat, there’s no point in your life where “I gave John Holmes a handjob” stops being an interesting story to tell at parties, even if you are Hef.
He always filmed the encounters. He had two large video cameras over his bed and he had these giant screens across from his bed. He had a whole library for these sex acts with different people and the video librarian told me Hef planned to use the footage against his associates if they ever threatened to come out with a memoir about him or the mansion.
Now we’re into the crazy parts. It’s all fun and hookers until a magazine mogul threatens to show your wife a filmstrip of you blowing a transgender prostitute. He kind of makes Hefner sound like he’s one jar of urine away from building a giant wooden airplane and buying 350 gallons of banana nut ice cream on a whim.
Hef wasn’t a kind man. If he tasted the Pepsi and it wasn’t cold enough, he would throw it away and call me to replace it. I don’t know if he ever even knew my name. He would just call me “valet.” He was very brutal to his girlfriends and sex partners.
As much fun as being friends with Hefner seemed like would be, he sounds like he was quite a jerk to anyone who wasn’t a celebrity. “Valet” isn’t even the proper way to address a valet, he should have referred to him as Tetenbaum.
I really didn’t feel anything when I heard Hef died. He started out as an innovator and was a very liberal guy. He was pro abortion, gay rights, marijuana. He was very ahead of his time and then when he moved from Chicago to Holmby Hills, he became just another dirty old rich man.
That’s the saddest part of the story. Hef was basically a Clinton, someone who set out to make the world a better place when they were young and turned into another rich asshole who only cared about himself. Now I feel like I need a drink. Maybe two drinks. I knew that would be a useful code.
Marilyn Manson was stretchered out in the middle of his concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York when a giant set piece featuring two guns fell on top of him. According to images, Manson was climbing the guns before it fell over.

Manson was stretchered out and taken to the hospital. On Twitter, rumors are saying he only broke his leg or fractured his ankle. No official word is out yet on the extent of his injuries, but knowing Manson, he’ll make a full recovery just so he can flick another reporter’s balls.

Whether you want to praise Hugh Hefner or bury him, Hef kept doing what he loved right up until the end. What he loved was looking at naked coeds, and who can blame him for that. According to TMZ, Hef was involved with choosing the Playboy Playmate of the Month right up through Miss September 2017, Jessica Wall.
While you memorize that in case it comes up at trivia night at your local sports bar, let’s take a look at Jessica’s Instagram and see how Hef did in his last days.
Can't stop smiling! Today the @playboy issue came out!!!!! Officially Playmate of Septemberthank you so much to the wonderful team- @grahamdunn @karolina_hmu and @awildatheart The magazine is now available for purchase via digital download here: http://www.playboy.com/sept-oct-2017 #septemberplaymate#playboy#fordmodels #ford#LA#NYC#CHI#smilealways#lighting #editorial#centerfold#playboy#repost
Well, I’m convinced Hugh Hefner was still on his game right up until the end.
For those of you who don’t like seeing beautiful women half naked, she has an adorable little cat, too.
Bella Thorne posed nude for GQ Mexico. That should be enough of a story, but nah.
After the photos were published, Thorne went on Instagram and complained how they airbrushed her too much. This is not a new thing, Bella.
She Instagrammed one of the photos from the shoot. It was her, naked, on a chair. We need more of these photos.
I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That's natural & that's human. You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don't see what everyone else sees. Know that it's completely normal to feel insecure and it's accepted. honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren't alone. That it's ok. As a public persona you know naturally that everytime you shoot with a magazine there is always small retouching. Cuz yeah if they show my acne scars or a wrinkle in my forehead or my teeth aren't perfectly white, people will look at the photo and say no she's not perfect and usually most people don't want the public trashing and I get it, But fuck it I'm here to tell you that's right I'm not FUCKING PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT. @gqmexico
She captioned it:

Then she ends it with:

One commenter wrote in response, “Yaass queen im SHOOK,” and another wrote, “FUCKING QUEEEEEEN SO PROUD BB ” which I think are awesome, everyday responses to anything your boss says at work. Try it. Do this especially if you work on Wall Street or some financial industry.
These photos look awesome. I like how well they retouched her body. So much more flawless and robotic and Westworld-like.
Hugh Hefner, 91, founder of the iconic Playboy magazine and brand, died at his home Wednesday surrounded by loved ones. Hopefully he died like how he lived, with a raging erection surrounded by nude centerfolds.
Hefner not only founded Playboy in 1953, but soon put the Playboy Mansion on the map with his legendary parties. It’s been said that you haven’t partied until you contracted an STD in the grotto at the Mansion. Actually, people don’t say that. I just made that up. Anyway, those parties ended a few years ago after he sold the mansion last August.
Hefner is survived by four children and his 31-year-old Playboy model wife, Crystal Hefner. God bless this man for giving children everywhere a glimpse of tits at the grocery store.
This past Sunday, when I watched football and saw that most NFL teams had made some sort of protest during the national anthem, my first thought was “I wonder what a fat, past his prime action star from the 80’s who was never anything more than a second-rate Schwarzenegger has to say about this.” Luckily, thanks to a fat, past his prime phone hacking reporter, I have my answer. Steven Seagal went on Good Morning Britain to complain about football players taking a knee to Piers Morgan, one of the only people who is more of an asshole than Steven Seagal.
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 27, 2017
Seagal did not disappoint, voicing one of the dumbest opinions on this that I’ve heard since… well, since the President of the United States weighed in on it, but at least in his case it was a distraction from him fomenting a nuclear war with North Korea. Uproxx had a transcript of Seagal’s comments.
“I believe in free speech. I believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t agree that they should hold the United States of America or the world hostage by taking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political view. I think it’s outrageous. I think it’s a joke. It’s disgusting. I respect the American flag, and I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag. I don’t understand or agree with this kind of behavior. I think it’s an outrage.”
Okay, so here’s the first thing. Steven Seagal apparently thinks his movies were real. Like, no one told him was an actor, I guess, and he thought he was really kickboxing against terrorists because he was a bad enough dude to save the president… I didn’t watch a lot of Steven Seagal movies, I preferred good action stars like Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan.
The other thing going on here is that players coming onto the field and standing for the national anthem is imposing a political view to begin with. You might not know this, but before 2009, NFL teams didn’t come out of the locker room until after the national anthem. They started doing so because the league got millions of dollars of taxpayer money from the Department of Defense and the National Guard to advertise for the military, and players standing for the anthem on the field is part of that advertisement. So while senate Republicans are trying to take away your health insurance and asking who is going to pay for the same single-payer health care that every other developed nation in the world has, remember that we’re paying football players to be on the field during the national anthem. And that, Steven Seagal, is the real outrage. Well, that and having paid full price to see Under Siege.
I love Ariel Winter. If you asked most men what they wanted in a partner, they’d give a list of things that all apply to her, from funny, cute and sweet to entirely out of their league. If you have any doubt how talented Winter is, take a look at her Instagram and then remember that she’s famous for playing an unattractive outcast.
Seriously, she looks like that and her main character arc on Modern Family is that only weird guys are attracted to her. If she doesn’t deserve an Emmy for that, I don’t know who does.
Ariel Winter has had a famously rough home life, and as she’s preparing to start school at UCLA, she opened up The Hollywood Reporter about what she’s been through as a child star, specifically with her abusive mother.
She wasn’t allowed to make friends with girls, she says, “because females are competition — that’s how some people see it.” Pressure to land jobs was intense. “You don’t get to mess up when you have somebody around you who is constantly watching.” Food was “very, very restricted” from the time she began acting, and her education was neglected. “I had a few tutors, and they were amazing,” Winter notes, and occasional school education helped (she attended half of kindergarten and half of second grade), but she felt at sea.
She also says her mother played up her sexuality when she was a child, which is weird. Sure, Winter is gorgeous now, but there’s no such thing as a hot seven year old, that’s just creepy.
From age 7, Winter recalls, she was sexualized — dressed in “the smallest miniskirts, sailor suits, low-cut things, the shortest dresses you’ve ever seen. People thought I was 24 when I was 12. If there was going to be a nude scene when I was that age, my mother would have a thousand percent said yes.”
Winter has also been attacked by people online for some reason, but she handles it better than almost anyone, eventually embracing the attention she’s garnered.
Initially, Winter tried to tame — or at least neutralize — the online haters. “I was like, ‘Maybe I’m going to lose some weight, dye my hair, change how I dress. … Maybe I’m doing something wrong.’ ” But it didn’t help. “I actually got more hate by trying to change.” So she opted to follow her heart — and her own provocative style — into the tabloid fray. “Ariel Winter Twerking in a Storage Unit Is the Strange-but-Sexy Video You Never Knew You Needed” runs a typical headline — but Winter says she knows what she’s doing.
It’s so hard not to like Winter, I don’t know why so many people seem to have a problem with her. On top of everything else, she ended up being the only child actor on Modern Family who could actually, you know, act. She’s probably second only to Ty Burrell in terms of comedic acting skill on that show. You can see Ariel Winter in Modern Family on ABC when the show’s ninth season premiers on September 27 At 9 PM eastern.
Did you know that Jessica Biel is part owner of a restaurant called Au Fudge? It seems like something only those living in California would know. But now you, loyal reader, know as well.
Bad news for Mrs. Biel and Au Fudge. They’re being sued by former employees who claim that they weren’t given proper breaks and that tips were withheld from major parties. The nine plaintiffs are seeking $461,694 in compensatory damages and at least $1,000,000 in punitive damages. That’s it? Biel should go ahead and write that check right now and save everyone the trouble. Justin Timberlake could probably find a check for that much lying around the house that’s dated back to his NSYNC days.
The nine plaintiffs were part of the original Au Fudge staff, and according to the Hollywood Reporter story, were morons:
The staffers are said to be “young adults new to the workforce and new to Los Angeles” who did double duty by working at Au Fudge while “trying to begin a career in the entertainment industry,” the suit says. “Plaintiffs were unfamiliar with workers’ rights and were ill-prepared to deal with violations of their rights in the workplace,” it adds.
Good luck in the entertainment industry. If you don’t even know what your rights are working at a restaurant, I’m sure you’ll go far. I want to get in contact with these people because I’m sure they need an agent. As long as they pay me my 75% (that’s standard fee in Hollywood, in case any of you nine former Au Fudge employees are reading), I’ll make sure no one ever takes advantage of them again.
Au Fudge catered major parties for companies like Netflix and Amazon. The employees were owed 22 percent of the final check, but claim to have never seen a dime. The report indicates that Netflix spent $80,220.19 at their party while Amazon spent $94,416.70. Step your game up, Netflix.
Just give them all free lifetime subscriptions to Netflix and Amazon and be done with this whole thing.
No one likes method actors. People pretend to be impressed, but really, every time you tell someone to call you Biff during rehearsal for Death of a Salesman at your community theater, everyone is rolling their eyes and mouthing “what an asshole” as they walk away from you. No one spends more time annoying their castmates with their unnecessary displays of commitment to acting than Jared Leto, though.
Maybe you’re familiar with how he paid someone to dress as a henchman and deliver a dead pig to his Suicide Squad castmates.Or how he sent Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn, a live rat. Imagine being in Suicide Squad with this douche, sitting around yelling at some PA “I’m the fucking Joker, bring me a cheese danish or I’ll rape your mother!” He was only in the movie for like, ten minutes, but he gave his co-stars a lifetime of memories of him being a huge dick. Which is apparently one of his better attributes.
Someone involved in the Blade Runner sequel, which is super creatively named Blade Runner 2049, thought it would be a good idea to cast this maniac as a blind person. According to Entertainment Tonight, he did exactly what you’d expect him to do and wore contact lenses that actually made him blind.
Because it’s not like the ability to see would be useful on a movie set for things like finding your mark or not walking into the prop scenery.
Director Dennis Villeneuve had high praise for Leto’s commitment, saying:
“He could not see at all. He was walking with an assistant, very slowly. It was like seeing Jesus walking into a temple,” he recalled. “Everybody became super silent, and there was a kind of sacred moment. Everyone was in awe. It was so beautiful and powerful — I was moved to tears.”
Yeah, I’ll bet that’s what happened. At no point did he think to himself “I can’t believe this asshole blinded himself, I have a shooting schedule and a budget to keep to and he can’t just pretend to be blind? I’ll bet they didn’t have to put up with this shit on Daredevil.”
Taylor Swift’s new album, Reputation, comes out November 10. She’s released “Look What You Made Me Do” which registered a big fat ‘meh’ from me. The chorus could’ve been better, the beat was above average. She needs to do away with being so self-referential about her tabloid life. I’m pressing snooze on that.
But! “Ready for It” is her second song. She previewed a minute of it during ESPN’s Alabama versus Florida State game. She also played some of it during a commercial for ABC’s upcoming fall season. Both ESPN and ABC are owned by the same company, is Swift owned by that company also?
You can’t get much from a minute (just ask your girlfriend, heyyy!!), but it sounds like that big pop sound Swift’s known for. That is to say, catchy, more of a chorus you can sing along to.
Some of the lyrics:
Are you ready for it?
Baby, let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin”
In the middle of the night,
In my dreams,
You should see the things we do, baby.
Would you say, in your, “wild dreams,” Taylor? Hehe.
Are you #readyforit?
No. 1 Alabama. No. 3 Florida State. Right NOW on ABC and streaming live on the ESPN App. pic.twitter.com/pojroWJRHL

As a song, it’s better than “Look What You Made Me Do.” On the other hand, compared to Taylor’s previous songs and albums, I have a feeling this album might not measure up. Look at 1989. Right out of the gate, she had “Shake It Off.” Then “Blank Space,” “Style” and “Bad Blood.” That is a murderer’s row right there. Classics.
“Look What You Made Me Do” can’t hold “Shake It Off”‘s jock. My guess is there’s nothing that will blow anyone away.
In fact, people will probably enjoy the Easter egg hunt with this album more than the actual songs. Here’s an interesting one:
…this may hint at some truth to the astute fan theory that each version of Swift at the end of the “LWYMMD” video represents a different song on the album. It would make sense, since there are 15 tracks and 15 Taylors. It’s also worth noting that “You Belong With Me” Taylor is amongst that crew, so that could potentially be representative of “Ready For It.”
I’ll give it up to Taylor, these little clues and fan theories, if true, are some smart marketing ploys by the Taylor Swift Corporation. At the same time, it’ll do nothing to dispel the idea that everything Swift does is calculated. Her team probably A/B tested every single song and gimmick for this new album. Also, she’s the Aryan Princess. Sooo, there’s that.
Warner Bros are trying their best to make us forget about that terrible Batman vs. Superman film by giving us a Joker origin film. Instead of using Jared Leto, who appeared as The Joker for like 10-minutes in Suicide Squad, the production company wants a bigger star.
They want the biggest star possible and the greatest actor of our generation.
They want Leo.
And they’re going to use Martin Scorsese to get him. Scorsese was listed as a producer on the upcoming Joker film when it was announced last week, even though his deal hasn’t been officially signed and he probably won’t do anything for the movie other than call up Leonardo DiCaprio.
Where does Jared Leto stand in all of this? Well, he’s still The Joker is the DC Universe that Marvel created in Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad. But this isn’t a DC Universe film. You see, Warner Bros wants to create two universes. A DC Universe where Ben Affleck sucks and a CD (yes, I just flipped the letters, that’s not the usual name) Universe where Ben Affleck doesn’t exist.
The CD Universe would allow Warner Bros to create standalone films with serious actors like Leo and the DC Universe would allow them to make terrible films that no one will want to see because who wants to watch Jared Leto after you’ve watched Leo?
Leo doesn’t typically do movie franchises because he’s a real actor who hasn’t reached the point of his career where he’s only doing films for money. That’s why Warner Bros is creating this standalone CD Universe. To lure the Leos of the world into comic book hell.
And to confuse the hell out of and piss off nerds everywhere.
Leo hasn’t been seen on screen since The Revenant because he’s been too busy banging models. But he has a couple of movies in pre-production. Given that he only does roughly one movie a year, don’t expect to Leo as The Joker until 2020.
Actually, don’t expect to see Leo as The Joker ever.
Bachelor in Paradise premiered earlier this month and people took notice thanks to the Corinne Olympios-DeMario Jackson scandal that shut down filming. Allow me to get you up to speed if you don’t know what I’m talking about:
*Filming stopped when Olympios and Jackson had sex that may or may not have been consensual due to Olympios being drunk/drugged.
*Both parties were kicked out of the house.
*An investigation found Jackson innocent of any wrong doing.
There was a lot more that you can read all about if you follow the 500 backlinks, but that’s pretty much the gist of it.
On Tuesday’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise, Olympios spoke for the first time since the incident.
There’s no video of the interview because ABC hates publicity or something, but here are quotes provided by Jezebel.
“The first day, unfortunately, I don’t remember much of,” she said. “I definitely over-drank. I did. I was also on some medication that you’re not supposed to drink on that I didn’t know. And, you know, the combination of the two…it’s not a good combination.”
So she mixed alcohol with pills and then made a decision. That’s called college.
Olympios on whether or not she blames Jackson:
“I honestly don’t feel like he did anything wrong, especially because everyone thought I was having fun and being Corinne. There’s just no way for you guys to know, ‘She’s, like, mentally checked out. Corinne is not here right now,’ which is beyond scary. But it is what it is, I guess. I don’t think it was anyone’s fault.”
“I would want to tell him, ‘Listen, I respect you as a human. I have nothing against you. I’m so sorry that you had to go through this. I know exactly what it feels like. I had to go through it, too. And I wish you all the best and I’m just…I’m sorry.”
Then why was this whole thing a big deal? How come she didn’t come out months ago and say all this instead of this back-and-forth that went on between Team Olympios and Team Jackson? Do you know how many words were wasted on this story over the past couple of months? All of them. All of the words.
Olympios then blamed the media because that’s what everyone does nowadays.
“I was really a victim of the media. A victim of having something this serious happen to you and have the media paint you a certain way that you know you aren’t and having all these people make their judgments and comments and they don’t even know what happened or went on.”
You were a victim of a television company exploiting this situation to garner interest for a show no one cared about. You were a victim of your friends, enemies, and castmates talking to anyone who would listen to them about the situation. You were a victim of stupidity because you didn’t realize that mixing pills and alcohol is a bad idea. You were a victim of unmemorable sex.
But the media is the only reason anyone knows who you are, sweetheart.
Here’s a video of Corinne talking to the evil media:
And if you can’t get enough Corinne, she’s apparently working on a reality show and a scripted series. No word yet on how these two shows are going to take place without some form of media.
Hollywood is, in 2017, still fairly averse to casting Asians in blockbuster films. I don’t believe that having an Asian lead in a film would actually hurt its box office performance. For example, The Big Sick, led by Kumail Nanjiani, pulled in $45 million on a $5 budget, which is pretty good for an indie rom-com about a coma patient.
It’s even more baffling to me when Hollywood casts a white actor to play a supporting actor who was Asian in the source material for no reason. Such was the case when Ed Skrein was cast to play Ben Daimio in the upcoming Hellboy reboot. In the comics, Daimio’s Japanese-American heritage plays a fairly important role in his backstory, so it’s not something that can be changed without changing the core of the character. When Ed Skrein found this out, he posted a message on Twitter saying he was going to step aside.
— Ed Skrein (@edskrein) August 28, 2017
And I say good on him. Not only is his decision upholding the integrity of the source material, it’s helping to provide opportunities for talented Asian-American actors who would otherwise be overlooked by The Hollywood machinery. Of course, this being Hollywood they’re probably just going to cast another white guy.
Usually I think these cries of whitewashing are a bit overblown. For example, in Dragon Ball: Evolution, Goku is an alien from the planet Vegita who exists in a fantasy world. There’s nothing inherently Chinese about Goku, even though Dragon Ball was based on the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Likewise Death Note, which adapted a comic originally set in Japan but took place in Seattle. It’s also important to note that both of these movies were terrible, so in the long run it’s probably better for Asian actors that they had white leads.
Major Daimio in Hellboy is a bit different. For starters, his name is Daimio, which is clearly Japanese. As I mentioned earlier, his Japanese heritage does inform his character. I just don’t know what the casting director was thinking. It’s not like the name Ed Skrein is going to pack people into the theater, the guy was in three episodes of Game of Thrones before he got recast and he played the bad guy in Deadpool. That’s essentially his entire resume. There are Asian-American actors way more famous than Ed Skrein.
Drop everything you’re doing and get ready for this bombshell: Kylie Jenner went completely nude. Ok, so she really just wore a see-through top, something I feel like has happened a million times over the years, but her spread in V magazine is being advertised as her first ever nude photo shoot.
Try and contain your excitement.
Here’s what the youngest Jenner sibling had to say on the shoot:
“That was actually my first super nude shoot. I always post sexy pictures, but have never really gone nude.”
I feel like this would be a bigger deal, or any deal at all, if Kylie had left anything up to the imagination over the years. Or if everything about her wasn’t so fake. How spectacular are nude photos of literal plastic from head to toe?
Kylie also talked about her different hair colors throughout the years because nothing about this girl is real.
“All I know is that when I go into weave stores, they have colors that I’ve worn, which is cool,” she says. It was inevitable, since her days doing meet and greets brought out the copycats in droves. “Back then, I dyed my hair blue and teal and other colors. I would do meet and greets and every other girl—even guys—had teal hair. They’d be like, ‘I did this because of you! Everyone has teal hair now!’”
Such a trendsetter, that Kylie Jenner. At least she doesn’t have an ego about it.
Here’s the most delicious piece of irony from the interview. The photo shoot was live streamed, because of course it was, and Kylie seemed to forget that for a second:
“Then I kept remembering, Everybody is watching me right now.”
A couple of lines later:
“I do have a guy that follows me all the time. I just never show anyone the footage,” she says, laughing. “Maybe one day.”
So she literally has a guy that follows her around with a camera at all times, but she’s completely unaware that there’s someone always watching her?
It gets better as later in the story she says:
“It would be a good feeling to just live a normal life for a second.”
Hey, maybe don’t have a guy taping your own homemade reality show when you’re not taping your own network reality show. That might make things a bit normal.
Anyway, Kylie Jenner got naked in case you’ve never seen an undressed mannequin.
Taylor Swift is a snake whose carefully crafted image was nearly ruined by Kim Kardashian who released a recording of her acknowledging a lyric she said she knew nothing about. After laying low for a bit, Swift is back and embracing those snake emoji’s everyone posted on her Instagram. She released a new single titled “Look What You Made Me Do” off her upcoming album Reputation.
Lyrics like “I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now / Why? / Oh, because she’s dead,” may reference her feud with Kanye while “The world moves on / Another day, another drama, drama / But not for me, not for me / All I think about is karma,” may reference her feud with Katy Perry.
If you haven’t figured it out, Swift is firmly in mindset of sticking with what she knows. Playing the victim. “Look what you made me do” is pretty much what an abusive husband says to his wife. Pretty apt considering that’s the relationship she has with her fans.
Steve Bannon has been removed as White House chief strategist. I’d say this is a good thing because Bannon is a huge reason why Donald Trump is in office, but this will probably lead to someone worse taking the position. So yeah. Things are still bad.
Bannon was forced out because someone had to take the fall for Trump blaming both sides in Charlottesville.
I’m not going to pretend like I know a ton about Steve Bannon. The most I know about him is that he was portrayed as Death on Saturday Night Live.
Based on those skits and Bannon’s quotes where he calls people “clowns” and “losers,” I think it’s safe to say that he’s pretty much a Trump clone. I guess one Trump is better than two.
Bannon was given the option to step down gracefully, but does anyone in the White House do anything gracefully? Of course not. So, instead of falling on his sword for Trump, he was forced out by Trump. Both of these guys are terrible people.
Let’s go to Twitter for some reactions.
Here at arbys we'd like to welcome steve bannon back to his old job: sleeping in our dumpster & barfing up gin in our parking lot

Is this a victory for America? Probably not. As I said, Trump will find someone worse and Bannon already did his damage by helping Trump get elected. This is nothing more than a Hail Mary by Trump. He knows he’s losing support and this is one of the most drastic measures he can take. Force out the only guy who comes close to him on the “we hate you” scale.
You know what his next drastic move will be in a month when we forget about this and he continues to do and say stupid things? War. Because the only thing that unites a country more than hating a single person is hating another country who we’re told is trying to destroy us.
Remember when I told you big breasts were back in style? Well, millennials have made a fool out of me, because according to PornHub, they’re just not as into big breasts as previous generations. While big boobs are still all the rage on red carpets and Paris runways this season, millennials are searching for Japanese cartoon porn more and breasts, big or small, less than older porn watchers. The most popular porn searches among millennials are “lesbian” and “teen,” both of which sound fine to me.
This is bad news for Hooters, a restaurant that insists they’re popular because their wings are so good and not because their buxom, barely-covered waitresses are paid to flirt with customers. But Hooters is so confident in the ability of their food to sell on its own merits that they’ve started testing fast-casual restaurants branded Hoots, where Hooters food is served in a normal setting with fully-dressed women and men as servers.
It’s probably not just lack of interest in breasts that bodes poorly for Hooters, as there’s been a larger trend of lack of interest in fast-casual chain restaurants that aren’t tit-themed, as well. Applebee’s is going to close over 100 locations this year and IHOP’s profits were down by over $20 million last quarter, according to Business Insider, who noted that TGI Fridays and Ruby Tuesday have also experienced downturns. So Hooters problem is probably less that people aren’t interested in seeing breasts, just that they’re not interested enough to give them an advantage over any of the other endless similar tacky restaurants with license plates on the walls and ESPN on a TV somewhere in your eyeline.
This all seems much ado about nothing to me. Most men like breasts. They like them big, small or medium, the important part is that they get to see them. It just seems that men are starting to have different priorities when looking for porn than big boobs. You know what your own porn search words are, and in general, you’re probably not concerned about breast size if you’re entering a search string like “teen lesbian freckles shaved.” Not that I search that every night or something… I take the night off when Game of Thrones is on.
I don’t know what Crop Over Festival is, but it’s giving us Rihanna looking like this. So, God bless you, Crop Over Festival.
According to my research, I am an investigative journalist after all, Crop Over Festival is an annual event in Barbados, Rihanna’s place of birth. The original intention was to celebrate the end of sugar cane harvest season. Now it’s just a thing where you get really drunk and dance a lot. It lasts for two whole months because I guess there isn’t a lot going on in Barbados, so they can just party for two months. It’s similar to Carnival in Brazil and every night in New Orleans.
You’re now smarter having read this post in search of hot Rihanna pictures.
Rihanna shows up to Crop Over Festival every year because there’s nothing Rihanna loves more than having a good time. Her peacock mermaid outfit is standard clothing for Crop Over Festival. Nothing says, “no more sugar cane harvesting” like “come harvest your cane in this sugar” outfits.

Rihanna tried to go on Instagram Live, but do you know how many worshippers and stalkers were trying to view that live feed? Around 40,000. More people tried to watch Rihanna dance than will buy the next UFC pay-per-view. Also, the internet connection in Barbados is bad. I’m not saying Barbados is poor and doesn’t have good internet. I’m saying thousands of people trying to use the same network in the same location automatically means the connection will suck. I barely get good speeds at the local Starbucks and only a dozen or so people are using that network.
If you want to watch two minutes of Rihanna’s blue hair, here you go:
I’m just wondering where her billionaire boyfriend is. Are they not serious enough for her to introduce him to her home country or have theY broken up already? You know every guy in Barbados is hoping for the latter.
I’m not sure being a celebrity is even worth it anymore. Usher allegedly had oral sex with a guy, unknown if he gave or received. Now the guy’s turning around and suing Usher. How’s that for a thank you very much?
As you might have read, Usher’s in the news for paying off hush money to a former sex partner. He purportedly hid his herpes diagnosis from an unnamed woman (but rumored to be Maya Fox-Davis). They had unprotected sex and Fox-Davis ended up with herpes. Then, he paid her off with $1.1 million.
Now the flood gates have opened.
Anyone who’s come within a foot of Usher’s dick has opted to sue. This includes Quantasia Sharpton, an unnamed woman, and an also unnamed fellow who engaged in oral sex with Usher.
The lawsuit says that Usher caused them “emotional distress, depression and anxiety.” They didn’t bother to ask about STDs “because Raymond [Usher] was a revered celebrity in their eyes who they believed could be loved and trusted.” Someone’s got pie on their face!
Who knows for sure, but seems like a money grab.
First off, Usher is bisexual? Okay. This is a surprise, sort of. There have been rumors, if you bother Googling it.
Even bigger than that is the lack of common decency normies have towards celebs now. Usher didn’t need this man for oral sex. This John Doe, as he’s named in the suit, got to suck Usher’s dick. Or had his dick sucked by Usher. Either way, John Doe won the lottery. How’s an autograph ever gonna compare to THIS gift that Usher gave you?
This reminds me of the Dave Chappelle routine about Michael Jackson and the Make-a-Wish kid. The kid asks to meet Jackson. Jackson agrees and invites him to Neverland. There, he gets fed, entertained and umm, gets his dick sucked. Afterwards, the kid claims abuse. Chappelle says, channeling Jackson, “This was YOUR wish, not mine.”
Kinda reminds me of this. Dude, John Doe, you don’t have normal people herpes. You have celebrity herpes. You win.
Sex Traffickers Show Utter Disgust After Realizing Kidnap Victim Was a Mother, Unsuitable for Sex Trade
This story has so many twists and turns. I can’t even believe it’s true. Is it true? Better not be anyone yelling “PRANK!”
Where to begin…
What happened: British model Chloe Ayling, 20, was booked by her agent in Milan for a photo shoot. Too bad the photo shoot was a fake, and only a cover for sex traffickers to sell her on the dark web.
Drugged, tied up: When she went to the shoot on July 11, her kidnappers drugged her with ketamine, stuffed her into a suitcase, threw that suitcase into a car’s trunk and took her to a house in northern Italy.
Here’s the final photo Ayling took on July 10 before her ordeal. She captioned it “Arrived.” No doubt referring to her arrival in Italy.
How her kidnapping went down:
“A person wearing black gloves came from behind and put one hand on my neck and one on my mouth to stop me from screaming,”she said in her statement…
“A second person wearing a black balaclava gave me an injection in my right forearm. I think I lost consciousness. When I woke up I was wearing a pink bodysuit and the socks I am wearing now.
Ayling remained chained to a wooden dresser at the northern Italian home. If only this was a YouTube prank video. So many clicks.
Fed to the tigers: Ayling feared for her life “second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour.” Her kidnappers told her she’d probably be sold to somewhere in the Middle East. Once her buyers got bored of her, they would resell her (what is this, eBay??) or that she’d get fed to tigers. One of the suspects said:
“When the buyer gets tired of the girl he can give them to others or if she’s not longer of interest she’s ‘tiger meat’.”
Compromising photos: While unconscious, her kidnappers took photos of Ayling which they put on the dark web listing. I assume it’s called a listing, sorta like eBay.
Double-dipping on that commission: Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, one of the suspects and the only arrest so far, not only wanted to sell Ayling on the dark web, but tried to extract a ransom from her agent. Herba asked $350,000 for Ayling’s return.
Left unanswered is what happens if both the ransom and the dark web money came in at the same time. Who would he go with? The highest bidder?
Here’s the kicker: Herba and his crew’s plan went to shit when they found out Ayling had a kid.
He said it was against the “rules” of his organisation and his superiors were angry. Afterwards they removed the cuffs from her feet and allowed her to move around the farmhouse…
According to the Corriere della Sera newspaper, Herba said, “You have a two-year-old child and our rules exclude mothers.”
After that, their ransom demands dropped to $50,000. Sooo, a discount you say. Did these kidnappers throw up their hands once they heard she had a kid? “Herba, did you forget to ask for CHILDLESS models??” “D’oh!”
And how did Ayling feel when she heard she wasn’t worth $350,000 anymore? Bet that stung. You know her ego shrank a bunch when they told her she was only worth pennies on the dollar now. Probably thrust her waist out and tried to prove she didn’t have any stretch marks.
The arrest: After negotiating the ransom down, Herba dropped her off at the British consulate in Milan where he was arrested on July 18. He’s being held on investigation of suspected kidnapping for extortion purposes.
More on the dark web: Ayling was listed on a dark web site called “Black Death”. That’s a really horrible name to sell an attractive model. They should use something like “Fair and Pleasant Trade” or “Sunshine Exchange: To Help You Forget You’re Buying a Woman Off the Internet.” On the Black Death website, she was listed under “Trafficking.” Women there get listed with their measurements, and assurances that they are free of STD’s. Very important to know when you’re purchasing a woman.
According to Ayling, Herba also told her that he made $15 million in the past five years from sales. Herba further mentioned that he sold three a week. Huh, his pay seems low. Some back of the envelope calculations show that’s 780 women in five years. That means he makes close to $20,000 per head. Maybe $15m is his cut after commission. If not, time to brush up on those sales skills.
Ayling & Herba have history: Ayling told cops she met Herba on an aborted photo shoot in Paris.
Kidnappers have big balls: After Ayling’s release, the kidnappers had some laughable demands. In a contract taken from Herba’s computer, they found the following terms:
“You are being released with a warning. You are certainly aware of your value on human slavery market. A mistake was made by capturing you.”
“You have agreed to pay outstanding costs of your release of $50,000. We expect that money to be paid in Bitcoin within one month. Any sort of disobedience will result in your elimination.”
“You have been treated fairly with respect and we expect to hear the same about us in return.”
We drugged you, tied you up, threw you in a suitcase and were about to sell you. I HOPE you have some COMMON DECENCY to honor our ransom agreement. Wow, huge balls on these guys.
Suspect was sorta kooky: If you asked yourself, was this guy a loner? Yea, he was.
One man, who lives in the block next to Mr Herba’s described how he would come and go, dressed in a cheap suit and driving a “banged up” car.
“I would see him quite a lot, going in and out of the flat. He would always be wearing a suit when he was going to work,” he said.
“It wasn’t an expensive-looking suit. He would go off to work in the morning, and then every half hour or so he would come back into the flat. It was weird.”
Another resident added: “You’d see him coming in and going again all of the time, but you could never really chat to him. Nobody ever came back with him.”
Little did they know this suspect was an everyday, run-of-the-mill talent scout. Sorta.
Oh, and the rat: As if kidnapping women wasn’t weird in and of itself. Herba would walk around with a rat on his shoulder. I have a feeling this guy didn’t get a lot of dates.
“Every now and then, we’d see him carrying a rat around with him. I don’t think he had a name, the rat.”
“But during the summer months in particular, he’d have this rat on him. It was bizarre, really strange. One day my mum asked him if she could see it.”
“He came up close to her and she had a good look. But even then, he wouldn’t speak to us.”
And finally: Police haven’t identified Ayling’s agent. You know how they say there’s no bad publicity? This is bad publicity. Any conversation with that agent will now end with, “And this photo shoot you have, will I be stuffed into a suitcase and sold on the Internet?” *silence*
Ironically, Ayling now has more press than she’d probably ever have if she wasn’t stuffed in a suitcase and headed for the Middle East. You could say this was her big break and the greatest thing to happen to her modeling career.

Will Emily Ratajkowski get body shamed for this?
Ratajkowski Instagrammed some underboob.
Ratajkowski also put up a butt shot.
Could’ve done without the dude.
Beautiful. And she even showed off her ribs. People really get pissed off about her ribs.
Ratajkowski had Instagrammed this out a few days ago:
Commenters got their panties in a bunch. Comments included:
When you can see the ribs that is not okay. We get upset when animals ribs show, but with woman it’s okay. Nopepppe. Being underweight is just as bad as being overweight.
Look at your ribs
That is way too much ribcage showing to be healthy
These people need to chill. Some people have no fat over their ribs, some have a lot. It’s all good. What are we gonna do, automatically assume she’s anorexic and shame her? She can’t help her big boobs and non-existent body fat. This is what the lord wanted.
Ratajkowski is pro-breasts and doesn’t get this body shaming.
“It really bothers me that people are so offended by breasts,” she says, as a white-haired woman, clearly eavesdropping, shoots us a punishing look…And she either doesn’t notice or doesn’t care about the double, triple, and quadruple takes going on around her. “That’s when I realized how fucked our culture is,” she continues. “When we see breasts, we don’t think of beauty and femininity. We think of vulgar, oversexualized images.”
Seriously, cannot agree more. Life flows from breasts, i.e. mother’s milk. We shouldn’t turn big boobies into a negative. That’s not very pro-life.
In fact, if you wish to lodge a silent protest, click and see Emily Ratajkowski’s full frontal nudity. Breast, ribs and more.
For some reason, Kylie Jenner has a Madame Tussauds wax figure. I thought those were reserved for talented people. I guess not.
This particular wax figure is faker than the Beyonce figure because it doesn’t properly depict Kylie’s butt.
According to Life & Style magazine, Kylie insisted that Madame Tussauds make her butt bigger after measurements were taken. They agreed because Madame Tussauds isn’t about creating lifelike wax figures. They’re about making money. And a bigger butt Kylie Jenner will probably make them more money. After all, men like big butts. They cannot lie.
Here’s a video of her wax figure. The one with the bigger butt is the wax figure, in case you couldn’t tell.
All of this is just going to lead to Kylie getting butt implants when she gets jealous of her own wax figure.
