Tame Impala Lit Up The Kimmel Stage With Two Performance Debuts

Tame Impala were the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (March 2). It was the perfect time to give The Slow Rush tracks “Breathe Deeper” and “Lost In Yesterday” their performance debuts and, in signature Tame Impala fashion, they were hallucinating, lights-driven experiences. Kevin Parker and the gang’s time-stopping feats are breathtaking.

Sliding, color-changing graphics on a double-screened backdrop and blinking bulbs played a hand in setting the mystifying mood of the show. Parker’s cherubic voice on “Breathe Deeper” danced on top of the screaming keyboard keys as red bulbs bore holes into his skin.

“Lost In Yesterday” was given a treatment of purple lights that felt infinitely more groovy. The onstage backdrop looked like a journey to the center of a black hole as Parker sang about letting go of the past to be ready for today. Instead of losing yourself in nostalgia, you’ll be lost in this experience.

Tame Impala dropped The Slow Rush, their first album in nearly five years, on Valentine’s Day. It featured “Patience,” “Posthumous Forgiveness,” and more.

Andrea Mitchell Is Still Waiting for a Woman President

When a woman succeeded, we took notice. It didn’t affect how we did our jobs, but we paid attention to that and we knew it was unique. I now am close to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was the first woman to hold that position. But even when she was first appointed, it left an impression on me. When she became Secretary of State in 1996, I was covering her swearing in, and I remember so well wanting to get an interview with her. I got to her on the street corner outside her house that morning before she went into the White House to be sworn in, and I got just a few words with her, but it helped the piece I was working on so much.

In the piece I wrote that night, I wrote that one of her commitments was going to be to increase the number of women at the State Department, which had been for generations a male-dominated institution. There was even a rule that a woman could not become an ambassador if her husband was an ambassador elsewhere; she was expected to follow him. It was just startling.

She was well aware of those dynamics, and I wrote about it and about how women in the foreign service were thinking about her appointment. That night, right after Nightly News, there was a reception in her honor. She invited the press, which was unusual, but she made it a point to have us there. And I ran into a very high level official who is still active in government and outside of government. And he said, “Where did you get that information? That’s just totally wrong. There’s no problem of sexism at the State Department. Who could have told you that?” And I just looked at him and thought to myself, “You are in for a really big shock.” And of course I was right, because that was the beginning of affirmative steps to improve gender equality at the State Department.

After Madeleine Albright, of course, there have since been more women at the State Department, and I have learned a lot from all of them. Condoleezza Rice was another remarkable woman and a great musician, which is something that I loved. She’s a wonderful pianist. We talked a lot about music, and she would have these little musical evenings at her apartment, and her friends would perform it. Later, Hillary Clinton held that position, and she came with the experience of having lived in the White House and worked to further women’s rights around the globe. For all the horrible things that happened with the war in Afghanistan, I saw something similar with Laura Bush. She worked with the State Department and the White House to help create the first co-ed institution of higher education—the American University in Kabul.

Just last week, I interviewed Anita McBride, Laura Bush’s former chief of staff, to talk about the new agreement between the Taliban and the Afghan government, which the United States has blessed. The fear is that it will undo the constitutional protections that the United States fought for under the Bush and Obama administrations, and it will put women in Afghanistan back in the Middle Ages, in terms of their rights.

Often, these stories are interconnected—the stories of female leadership and the conditions on the ground for women for women around the world. And I know that because I’ve seen it. I went with then-First Lady Hillary Clinton to Beijing in 1995 when she gave that famous speech and said, “Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights.” I reported from Afghanistan under Taliban rule in 1998 and understood what women were dealing with there. In a crisis, women and girls are often the first to suffer. In Darfur, when I went there with Condoleezza Rice to a refugee camp, we met with all of these women who had been terrorized and raped and abused in refugee camps by the militias. You see it in Syria now with our withdrawal, what’s happening to women and children. And of course, we’ve seen it with the women and children on our own southern border, who’ve been separated and left unaccounted for and not reunited. I don’t think women have all the answers, but I do think that women leaders can often respond more affirmatively than men do. One of the few virtues of having been at this for as long as I have been is that I’ve gotten to experience these incredible social movements and transitions, for women in particular.

Clare Crawley, 38, Is The Bachelorette — Why That’s Important

As a loud and proud cougar who made the British tabloids for having such a great sex life in my 40s, I’m thrilled to see Clare Crawley, 38, cast as the next Bachelorette. And based on the social media reaction, I’m not the only one.

Clare is the hero we need right now because “older” women are more likely to know what they want. Far from being desperate, like society claims, they’re usually single at that age because they refuse to settle for less than what they deserve.

Full disclosure: I never considered myself a huge fan of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette before. Among other things, I’d always just assumed the franchise wouldn’t speak to me as a woman who’s never cared that much about getting married. I’d rather be alone at any age than feel alone by settling with the wrong person out of fear. With the announcement that Clare is the Bachelorette, though, I realized the biggest reason why I kept turning off the show: I can’t relate to a 23-year-old who says she’s ready to settle down with one man forever…before she’s old enough to even rent a car.

Clare isn’t interested in settling, as we’ve seen already with her willingness to walk away from Juan Pablo. And on Good Morning America, she said she wants a man who’s willing to let his guard down and be emotionally brave. As someone who’s learned the hard way not to date emotional gold diggers, I’m already a fan of this attitude and approach. Clare can hopefully teach all of us what to look for in a healthy partner and what to not settle for.

And, as Clare pointed out in that interview, age is a benefit because it’s taught her what she does and doesn’t want. I didn’t have my first worthy orgasm until my mid 30s because I didn’t know my body or what I wanted sexually due to lack of experience and a tendency to hook up with selfish dudes who just didn’t care. So imagine how little I knew about serious relationships, especially the kind that might lead to marriage, in my 20s. I admire younger people’s infectious enthusiasm and positive outlook, but age and experience are what teach human beings about everything in life. Those much-needed lessons are hard. They take time. Why do you think Yoda and Gandolf are so smart? Age and experience!

Clare knows her worth. Not despite her age. Because of it.

More than anything, though, having Clare cast is about representation. Women (and men!) are waiting later to get married and have been for a while, so it’s nice to Bachelor Nation better reflecting our reality. Clare not only has the confidence and experience of an older woman who knows her worth, but she’s also been around the block at Bachelor Nation. She knows what she’s doing and won’t be pushed around.

We need women like this. Someone who wants to find love and is optimistic, but who’s not willing to sacrifice herself or her integrity in order to get it. Clare represents the very best part of being older and unwed—you stop worrying so much about being alone. And when you don’t let society manipulate you into making decisions based on fear or social pressure, you attract the kind of person who respects you as much as you respect yourself. I can’t wait to watch.

Meet Beanie Feldstein: 6 Things You Need To Know About The Booksmart Star

She’ll Take On The Role Of Monica Lewinsky

The latest season of Ryan Murphy’s crime anthology, American Crime Story focuses on the Bill Clinton impeachment trials and his sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky. Beanie Feldstein has been cast in the Monica Lewinsky role, with Clive Owen playing Bill Clinton. American Crime Story: Impeachment’s cast also includes Sarah Paulson, Anthony Green, Betty Gilpin, Annaleigh Ashford, and Billy Eichner. The Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal was one of the most talked about events of the late-90s, so we’re excited and intrigued to see how Beanie Feldstein adds her own spin to Lewinsky. American Crime Story Impeachment was originally scheduled for a September 27, 2020 premiere, but, due to a production delay, it likely won’t premiere until late 2020 or early 2021.

Peter Weber Says the ‘Bachelor’ Finale Is ‘an Insane Ending’

Unfortunately, the audience wasn’t able to get that information, and it maybe came off like, “Why is Peter making this decision?” I trusted Victoria, and there’s more personal stuff to it that will stay between the two of us. I learned a lot about Victoria, especially in the fantasy suite, and that made me feel confident about [choosing to believe her].

Have you talked to Merissa since the season ended?

No. No communication.

So let’s talk about Madison then. Did you ever ask her why she would go on The Bachelor knowing that sex is often a very big part of it?

I haven’t talked directly to her about that, but I never once held anything against her. That definitely made it very difficult week for me, no doubt about that, but her expressing her views and having to share what was on her heart with me was always in her right to do. It’s never too much for me, and I understand.

There are so many conspiracy theories about what happens on your finale. Chris Harrison even said, “If you think you know what’s coming, you don’t.” So why hasn’t it been spoiled?

I don’t know. I think when I made that statement [earlier this year that it wouldn’t be spoiled], I was just throwing it out there. I’ve truly believed it. I thought there was a reason that it wouldn’t be spoiled. But I’m even a little shocked just with the day and age we live in, social media and whatnot. It’s an insane ending, it is. And it’s the hardest last week of my life. So that’s really all I can say about that.

But then we have Chris saying that you don’t even know how this is all going to end. So are you terrified the “After the Final Rose” special will be just as difficult?

I wouldn’t say terrified because I can honestly say where I’m at right now, I am very happy. I say it over and over, but I followed my heart the entire time. A lot of people, I think, will be surprised. There’s a lot of unexpected stuff that happens up until the very last second, that’s for sure. I think that’s why it’s not been able to be spoiled. Soon everyone will know.

My personal theory is that it’s either Madison or Hannah Brown at the end. Because when your mother says, “Go back and get her,” it seems she’s referring to a relationship she’s invested in. Obviously, she met Maddie in the very beginning of your season and knows Hannah.

Right. I think that’s a very fair theory. My mom is very emotional, and she can’t hide her emotion at all. She definitely has opinions that she feels like she has to get across to me. I know it only comes from a place of love. She’s my biggest fan.

And she doesn’t even know how this season ends?

You guys will have to tune in to see.

You are so well media-trained. I can’t imagine how hard this has been not to say anything. [Laughs.]

It’s very hard. The finale is crazy. That’s all I can say. [Laughs.]

The Bachelor two-night finale airs Monday, March 9, and Tuesday, March 10, on ABC. Jessica Radloff is the Glamour West Coast editor. You can follow her on Instagram @jessicaradloff14.

Uncharted: An Updated Cast List

Mark Wahlberg

Back when David O. Russell was set to helm the Uncharted movie, Mark Wahlberg, who has recently popped up in Mile 22 and Instant Family, had been selected to play Nathan Drake. Considering Wahlberg’s age at the time, presumably this would have followed a Nathan Drake who’s at the same level of experience he is in the video games, rather than the prequel it is now. Regardless, following Russell’s exit, eventually Wahlberg dropped off the project, but as of late 2019, he’s back aboard. This time around, Wahlberg has been cast as Victor “Sully” Sullivan, Nathan’s mentor and father figure. So while he won’t be the main star of the show, he’ll still have plenty to do in Uncharted.

Why Universal’s Invisible Woman Should Be Directly Tied To The New Invisible Man

However, the lack of either of those scenarios leaves a very wide door open for Elizabeth Moss’ character to become her own sort of avenging angel for those who are abused in a similar manner. Now that she’s gotten a taste of the invisible life, free of incrimination and accountability, there’s no telling what sort of antics she could get into, and that means there’s fertile ground for a sequel.

All The Bright Place: 8 Big Differences Between The Book And The Movie

Violet Has A Passion For Writing

The story of All The Bright Places has a lot to do with Finch helping Violet get back on her feet after the death of her older sister, Eleanor. The movie gets the broader strokes of the book right, such as getting her back in the car for the first time and taking her on adventures that bring out the fun in her again. However, one aspect about Violet that the movie misses is her passion for writing. In the book, she and Eleanor used to have an online magazine together but she’s stopped since her death. Once she and Finch “wander” together, she gets back into it again and even thinks up a new website called “Germ Magazine”.
