Turns out, a lot. As Elle Fanning told us, she felt she could relate to the All The Bright Places character on an emotional level. Violet Markey is dealing with the loss of her older sister and she closes what she’s feeling off from everyone. Fanning spoke to understanding what it’s like to not wanting to deal with certain feelings and having them come out and explode or “vomit” in other ways later.
I can’t blame Leigh Whannell for feeling superstitious. Too often there have been times where a movie lays the groundwork for a sequel, but it ends up underperforming and the studio decides not to move forward with a follow-up. This happens quite a bit on TV too, with both brand-new and veteran shows ending their seasons on cliffhangers, only for the network to cancel them.
Lady Gaga‘s new single “Stupid Love” might officially be out after leaking online last month, but it sounds like there’s a whole lot more where that came from. After releasing the single along with a very pink, very intergalactic music video earlier today (February 28), Gaga called into an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music. And in addition to chatting about her brand new bop, the two discussed something much, much bigger on the horizon: her sixth studio album.
“We are definitely dancing,” Gaga said of her highly anticipated sixth LP, affectionately known as #LG6 on social media. “I put all my heart, all my pain, all my messages from the other realm that I hear of [and] what they tell me to tell the world, and I put it into music that I believe to be so fun and energetically really pure. I want people to dance and feel happy.” Her main goal? To release an album that will become part of her fans’ “daily lives,” and that will “make them happy every single day.”
But creating an album that people organically want to dance to is, like many other things, easier said than done. Which is why Gaga worked with producer Max Martin for the album’s first single. “He’s an amazing producer,” the pop star said. “I’ve never worked with him, I’ve always sort of gone, ‘I write my own music, I produce myself, I don’t need to work with Max, right?'” Soon enough, she began to warm up to the idea. “I decided to stop being an asshole, meet him at least, you know?”
After that, everything fell into place. “Basically, I sang over a track that BloodPop made. We sent over what I sang to Max, Max picked some parts out, sent it back to me, and then I wrote lyrics,” Gaga said. And after piecing together a song that they were proud of, they decided to hit the studio. “I warmed up my voice, got in the booth, I sang it, and what you’re hearing on ‘Stupid Love’ is what we did that day,” she explained.
As it turns out, working with a variety of different people to create even more pop bangers for her next album was the way to go. “These records got passed around to so many different people,” she said. “There were so many different iterations of these songs because we all wanted it to be perfect and literally nobody cared who put their fingerprints on it, as long as it was the dopest thing that we could give to the world and that it was meaningful, authentic, and completely me.”
Now that “Stupid Love” is officially here, we can’t wait to hear what the rest of #LG6 will sound like. Unfortunately, a release date for the project hasn’t yet been announced. What we do know, however, is that the LP will be full of love and perspective. “This album is such a display of not only how you can reframe the way that you view the world,” she said, “but I promise and I hope that the love that was around me in the process of making this album is something that other people feel.”
Ally Brooke has been on an absolute tear this year. She kickstarted 2020 with the video for “No Good” — which saw her flaunting all those impressive moves she learned on Dancing With the Stars — and followed up with the festival-ready Afrojack collaboration “All Night.” And she’s not done yet.
On Friday (February 28), Ally released “Fabulous,” her second song in as many weeks. On it, the 26-year-old gives off major Sharpay Evans energy by professing to love herself; curves, scars, faults, and all. “Nobody’s perfect / I got my flaws, but man, I’m gorgeous,” she sings on the opening lines.
Ally really hits her stride on the chorus, which cleverly interpolates Patti Labelle’s “Lady Marmalade.” She sings, “I woke up feelin’ fabulous (Hey sister, go sister, oh sister, whoa) / Don’t wait on me, I’m fabulous, hey (Hey sister, go sister, oh sister, whoa).” Throw in a little belting and a club-ready beat, and you’ve got another irresistible bop from Ally Brooke.
Hyping up the new song on Instagram, Ally shared, “SHE’S OUT!! And she means a lot to me. This song in a way narrates my journey, my past, and where I am now. I’ve finally gotten to a place where I believe these words. Hope u love it as much as I do.”
“Fabulous” comes a week before Ally kicks off her debut solo headlining trek, the aptly titled Time To Shine Tour. It’ll play an important role in the live show — on each stop of the tour, the Fifth Harmony alum will invite a lucky fan onstage to perform the new song with her. If you’re going, you’d better brush up on your moves!
Spoilers ahead for Sonic the Hedgehog.
Video game adaptations have had a colorful history in movie theaters. Countless video game movies have been flops throughout the years, including classics like Super Mario Bros. to more modern attempts like Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft. But there have been a few exceptions to this rule, including recent animated/live-action fusions Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog. The latter blockbuster had a rocky road to theaters, but became a critical and box office success after its release. Although fans are wondering: why wasn’t Super Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds included?
It’s also unclear how long Playdate With Destiny will be, though if it’s anything like the traditional Pixar shorts, it’ll probably clock in somewhere between 5-10 minutes. After all, while getting a short film in front of a full-length feature is a nice bonus, people are coming to see Onward, and you don’t to leave them hanging on that for too long.
It’s good to be a Killing Eve fan right now, considering the show was renewed for a fourth season even before season three premiered. Of course, that’s not surprising: The series is a hit, after all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Killing Eve saw week-over-week growth in its first season in both the adults 25-54 and 18-49 demographics, a rare feat in the on-demand video age.
The series stars Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri, an M16 operative who attempts to track down a dangerous assassin named Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer). The women soon become deeply obsessed with one another, and a cat-and-mouse game like no other ensues. The season two premiere picked right where the drama left off in the season one finale, guaranteeing the journey ahead will be just as fascinating and intense.
But what about this new season three? What’s next for this thrilling, heart-pounding show? Here’s everything we know so far about season three. Check back often—we’ll keep updating as more details come in.
The premiere date is April 26. The official Killing Eve Twitter account released this haunting/sexy/perfect teaser on February 28, 2020.
There will be a new showrunner for season three. Killing Eve truly is a show made for women by women. For season three, British writer Suzanne Heathcote (from Fear the Walking Dead) will take over for Emerald Fennell. (Fennel took over from season one creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.)
“I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season three. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands,” Waller-Bridge told The Hollywood Reporter.
“We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw on our networks,” AMC Networks group president Sarah Barnett added in a statement. “Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons. As we did last year, we’re renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate, now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence—we adore this show as much as our fans do. Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.”
Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw will obviously return. Eve’s partner and computer expert Kenny (Sean Delaney), M16 agent Caroline Martens (Fiona Shaw) and the rest of Eve’s team are also expected to return.
Past showrunners will still stay on to executive produce. The new team won’t be left in the lurch. As The Hollywood Reporter explains, Sally Woodward Gentle, co-showrunner on season two, will stay on as one of the executive producers on season three. She will be joined by Lee Morris, Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, Sandra Oh, and Jeff Mevloin.
Normani just broke her silence on Camila Cabello‘s past racist social media posts, which the “Havana” singer apologized for last year. (The two performed in the pop group Fifth Harmony together from 2012 to 2016.)
“I want to be very clear about what I’m going to say on this uncomfortable subject and figured it would be best to write out my thoughts to avoid being misconstrued, as I have been in the past,” she told Rolling Stone magazine. “I struggled with talking about this because I didn’t want it to be a part of my narrative, but I am a black woman, who is a part of an entire generation that has a similar story.”
“I face senseless attacks daily, as does the rest of my community,” she continued. “This represents a day in the life for us. I have been tolerating discrimination far before I could even comprehend what exactly was happening. Direct and subliminal hatred has been geared towards me for many years solely because of the color of my skin.”
“It would be dishonest if I said that this particular scenario didn’t hurt me,” she said, referring to Cabello’s past posts and also online bullying she experienced from fans during the Fifth Harmony days. “It was devastating that this came from a place that was supposed to be a safe haven and a sisterhood, because I knew that if the tables were turned I would defend each of them in a single heartbeat. It took days for her to acknowledge what I was dealing with online and then years for her to take responsibility for the offensive tweets that recently resurfaced. Whether or not it was her intention, this made me feel like I was second to the relationship that she had with her fans.”
Normani added, “I don’t want to say that this situation leaves me hopeless because I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity for personal growth. I really hope that an important lesson was learned in this. I hope there is genuine understanding about why this was absolutely unacceptable.”
Cabello was called out last year when a Twitter user posted a thread of screenshots allegedly from her old Tumblr account that showed her using racially insensitive language and reblogging a number of racist and xenophobic tropes and images.
“When I was younger, I used language that I’m deeply ashamed of and will regret forever,” Cabello wrote in December 2019, referencing the posts. “I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it.”
“I apologized then and I apologize now,” Cabello continued. “I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart. As much as I wish I could, I can’t go back in time and change things I said in the past. But once you know better, you do better and that’s all I can do.”
Cabello added, “I’m 22 now, I’m an adult and I’ve grown and learned and am conscious and aware of the history and the pain it carries in a way I wasn’t before. Those mistakes don’t represent the person I am or a person I’ve ever been. I only stand and have ever stood for love and inclusivity, and my heart has never, even then, had any ounce of hate or divisiveness.”
The Jurassic Park movies have always been known for their cinematic quality, using a mixture of practical and visual effects to bring the dinosaurs to life. Hawaii us usually utilized for the fictional island of Isla Nublar, although Fallen Kingdom‘s ending exposed dinosaurs to the entire planet. Colin Trevorrow recently shared a photo from Dominion‘s set, revealing one of the gorgeous locations being used for the film. Check it out below.
It’s more than just a one movie deal, but specifics have been difficult to find. Either way, Iger might want to get that pint with Tom Holland to see what the actor thinks the future of the wall-crawler should be, as Holland’s opinion is clearly important to Iger.
