Stephen Hillenburg, Creator of ‘SpongeBob SquarePants,’ Dies at 57

0

A nine-time Emmy nominee for the show, he was diagnosed with ALS in March 2017.

Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of the Nickelodeon animated megahit SpongeBob SquarePants, died Monday. He was 57.

Hillenburg, a former marine biology teacher, died of complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at his home in Southern California. He was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease in March 2017.Nickelodeon announced his death in a tweet Tuesday: “We are sad to share the news of the passing of Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants. Today, we are observing a moment of silence to honor his life and work.”Hillenburg was a nine-time Emmy nominee for SpongeBob but never a winner.

In February at the Annie Awards in Los Angeles, Hillenburg was among those given a Winsor McCay honor for his career contributions to animation. Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, made the stage presentation and accepted the award on Hillenburg’s behalf as he remained seated to receive a standing ovation.

Born Aug. 21, 1961, in Lawton, Okla., Hillenburg graduated from Northern California’s Humboldt State University in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in natural resource planning and interpretation, with an emphasis on marine resources.

“Obviously, SpongeBob is a comedy, but it really was inspired by me liking marine science,” he saidin a 2015 interview. “I focused on that, and I never thought the two would come together.”

While working as a marine biology teacher at the Orange County Marine Institute (now the Ocean Institute) in Dana Point, California, Hillenburg noticed that “animation started booming,” and that led him to enroll at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia as a graduate student in 1987. He left five years later with a degree in experimental animation.

Starting in 1993, Hillenburg wrote and directed for Rocko’s Modern Life and Rugrats at Nickelodeon.

Martin Olson, a writer on Rocko’s Modern Life, admired a comic book that Hillenburg had drawn and written about tide pools. “It got me thinking, ‘If I were to do a show, it would be about these invertebrates and these crazy animals that exist in the ocean,’ ” Hillenburg recalled. “It was that moment that said, ‘Maybe I should pursue this.’ ”

SpongeBob SquarePants premiered in May 1999. The series — which has won multiple awards, including honors from the British Emmys, the Annies and ASCAP — has aired more than 250 episodes during its nearly two decades on air.

Hillenburg also was an early voice actor for Potty the Parrot and played the ukulele for some of the show’s original music.SpongeBob has been adapted twice for the big screen, for 2004’s The SpongeBob SquarePants Movieand again for 2015’s The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Additionally, the character found life on the stage in the Tony-winning SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical, which wrapped a 327-show stint in September. Hillenburg is survived by his wife of 20 years, Karen (the character Karen Plankton is named for her); son Clay; mother Nancy; brother Brian and his wife, Isabel; and nieces Emma and Hazel.

“Steve imbued SpongeBob SquarePants with a unique sense of humor and innocence that has brought joy to generations of kids and families everywhere,” Nickelodeon said. “His utterly original characters and the world of Bikini Bottom will long stand as a reminder of the value of optimism, friendship and the limitless power of imagination.”

Stan Lee Has Already Filmed His Cameos for ‘Avengers 4’ & ‘Captain Marvel’

0

As the comic book world continues to mourn the passing of legend Stan Lee, fans maybe able to find some solace knowing he was able to film his cameos for both the upcoming Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel films.

Reported by Infinity War and Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo and Lee’s agent, Stan was able to film his short scenes before passing. So far it is unknown if Lee was able to shoot a cameo for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which would mark the film as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film without him. Over to the side of Fox, both Dark Phoenix and New Mutants are gearing up for its release, however it hasn’t been reported yet if Lee will be making a cameo or not.

During an interview with BBC Radio Scotland, Russo shared, “So, Stan, typically we try to get him out — he doesn’t love to fly — so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time. So if we have other movies shooting on the same lot that we’re on, for instance Ant-Man 2 or Avengers 4, we group his cameos together and then move him from one set to the next and kind of get him through his cameos in one day.”

For over two decades, Lee has showed up in over 30 Marvel films starting with 1989’s TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to the recent Ant Man and the Wasp. Having cemented his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man creator and former Marvel president and chairman will certainly be remembered for decades to come by fans all over the world.

Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95. To remember him, watch all of Stan Lee’s Marvel cameos in this supercut.

 

15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time

We don’t talk much about music videos here at The Influencer Marketing Hub. Let’s be honest – they don’t provide much opportunity for influencer marketing unless you have sufficiently deep pockets to pay celebrity prices. Yet you can’t ignore the fact that many people love music videos.

YouTube was created in 2005, with the first video – Me at the Zoo – being uploaded on 23 April 2005. Since then, 1.3 billion people have set up YouTube accounts. In 2018, people watch nearly 5 billion videos each day. People upload 300 hours of video to the site every minute.

According to 2016 research undertaken by Pexeso, music only accounts for 4.3% of YouTube’s content. Yet it makes 11% of the views. Clearly, an awful lot of people watch a comparatively small number of music videos. It should be no surprise, therefore, that the most watched videos of all time on YouTube are predominantly music videos.

Most subscribed channels on the other hand are predominantly gaming channels.

This post looks at the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time. 14 of these videos are music videos. If we were to widen our scope to cover the top 100 YouTube videos, you would find that 95 are music videos. And none of the remaining five come from famous YouTubers, such as PewDiePie.

If you’r einterested to see how much these YouTubers Earn you can have a look at our YouTube Earnings Estimator 

The best-known influencers certainly have popular channels. But most gained their fame by having many people watching a broad range of videos. None of these genuine influencers have one-off videos with world-shattering viewing figures. PewDiePie’s most popular video (Jabba the Hutt) has about 4.4 million views. In comparison, Adele’s Hello (#15 on this list) has had nearly 2.2 billion views.


15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time:


1. Despacito – Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee

Despacito’s rise to the top of this list in 2017, demonstrates two essential points about YouTube. Firstly, it shows that YouTube’s popularity is forever increasing. There was a time when nobody thought that anybody would overtake Gangnam Style.

It also demonstrates how YouTube is now a global phenomenon. Despacito, which is Spanish for “Slowly,” is sung in Spanish by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and also features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee. The music video shows both artists performing the song in La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría.

The song topped the charts of 47 countries and entered the Top 10 in ten others. It was the first song to top the Billboard 100 in Spanish in 20 years.

Interestingly, Justin Bieber released a remix version a few months later, where he sang some lines in English. While this probably helped the original’s YouTube performance, it didn’t overtake it or enter the YouTube Most Viewed charts.

Despacito became the first video on YouTube to achieve the milestones of both three and four billion views. It overtook See You Again to take YouTube’s All-time Number 1 spot in August 2017.


2. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

See You Again held YouTube’s Number One position from July 10 to August 4, 2017, and was the video that finally broke “Gangnam Style’s” hold on the top rank. It was, of course, only 25 days, until Despacito made its charge and overtook See You Again.

The main reason for See You Again’s success was that it was commissioned as the theme for the movie, “Furious 7”. It was written as a tribute to fan-favorite, the late actor Paul Walker.

It is both Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s most successful track to date. The song spent 12 weeks at the top of the US Billboard 100 and reached Number One in a number of other countries.

It also held the record for the most streamed track in a single day on Spotify in the US, as well as records for most streams in a  week worldwide and in the UK.

Overall, See You Again was the best selling song in the world in 2015.


3. Shape of You – Ed  Sheeran

Ed Sheeran had a hugely successful 2017. No matter where you went, there always seemed to be an Ed Sheeran song playing. He even performed a cameo role in an episode of “Game of Thrones.”

He released Shape of You as a digital download on 6 January 2017. He also included it as part of his third studio album.

The song made it to Number 1 on the singles charts of 44 countries. It topped the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 2017. It was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

Ed Sheeran released a lyric video for the song on his channel. People have viewed that version over 750 million times to date. On 30 January 2017, the official video was uploaded to YouTube. The video became one of the fastest videos to reach 1 billion views on YouTube. It achieved this milestone on 8 May 2017, just 97 days after its release.


4. Gangnam Style – Psy

It would be fair to say that Gangnam Style was an unexpected mega-hit, that set records on YouTube, that some people believed would never be bettered.

The video shows Psy poking fun at the style of Seoul’s Gangnam-gu. This is claimed to be, “a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on the high-status lifestyle.”

Psy’s official YouTube account uploaded the video on July 15, 2012. On November 24th that year, Gangnam Style overtook Justin Bieber’s then-record of 803,700,000 views to take the coveted Number 1 spot on YouTube. It stayed in that position for an incredible 1,689 days.

Gangnam Style didn’t take long to take the accolade of being the first video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube, receiving that honor in December 2012. It reached 2 billion views in June 2014, and 3 billion in January 2018.

The video holds a few other YouTube records. It was the most rated video until February 2017, and most liked video until August 2016. Until Adele’s Hello passed it on January 18, 2016, it held the record for the fastest video to reach 1 billion views. It still holds the record for being the most discussed video.


5. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster – Get Movies

This is by far the most unusual video on this list. It is not a music video. It is not an official video (although official copies of this episode do exist on YouTube). And it is in Russian.

This particular video is technically called Маша и Медведь (Masha and The Bear) – Маша плюс каша, as it is a Russian version.

Masha and the Bear is a Russian animated television series, loosely based on an oral children’s folk story. It is a Russian children’s television series, of four series (to date) consisting of 68 episodes. Some episodes of the English-language version are available on Netflix.

All of the episodes have been uploaded to YouTube over time, and three of them have exceeded 1 billion views. There is an official YouTube channel – MashaMedvedTV.

It is thought that one of the reasons for the show’s popularity is that Masha is dressed in a folk costume with a headscarf. Her legs are covered. This has makes the show acceptable to Muslim audiences, including in populous countries, such as Indonesia.

This particular episode, “Recipe for Disaster,” was originally episode number 17. It is episode 7.1 on Netflix (which has combines several of the short Masha and the Bear episodes together).


6. UpTown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

UpTown Funk was recorded by British record producer, Mark Ronson, along with American singer/songwriter, Bruno Mars. It was released as a single on 10 November 2014.

It spent 14 consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the US Billboard 100, and also reached Number 1 in the charts in several other countries.

UpTown Funk became the second best-selling single of 2015. It won two Grammy Awards, including the record of the Year.

The music video was released a week after the single – 17 November 2014. It shows Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, and the Hooligans walking around cities, kitted out in brightly colored suits and chains. It was filmed in a range of cities where Bruno Mars was touring.

The video was almost as popular as the song, gathering more than 2.8 billion views to date.


7. Sorry – Justin Bieber

It should surprise nobody that Justin Bieber has a video on YouTube’s Top 10. He is one of the most visible symbols of the YouTube generation. It is perhaps surprising that he cannot claim more of the videos in this top group, although he does have videos of his songs in positions 23 and 24.

Sorry comes from Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album, “Purpose.” It was released on October 23, 2015. The song topped the charts of 13 countries, including seven weeks in the top spot in Bieber’s native Canada. Globally, people bought more than 10 million copies of the song in 2016.

Unusually, they made the dance video of the song in New Zealand, featuring New Zealand dancers – the ReQuest Dance Crew, and New Zealand choreographer, Parris Goebel. Although this was originally just intended to be a lyric video, it ended up as the main one. It became the fifth fastest YouTube video to reach 1 billion views, and the fourth fasted to reach 2 billion views.


8. Sugar – Maroon 5

Sugar was recorded by Maroon 5 for their fifth studio album, “V.” It was released as a single on January 13, 2015.

It peaked at Number 2 on the US Billboard 100.

The band worked with film director, David Dobkin on the music video. He had previously directed the movie “Wedding Crashers,” and used that as inspiration for this video.

In the video, Maroon 5 crashes weddings across Los Angeles. This is not staged. Maroon 5 has genuinely crashed the weddings shown in the video. In reality, each groom was given some notice and agreed to let an unnamed, but famous band play at their wedding, but nobody else connected with the marriages had advance notice. It must have been a shock to the brides to find Adam Levine serenading them at their weddings.

The production team worked with wedding planners in Los Angeles to find suitable weddings for the video.

The band found it a fantastic experience. They were nervous that they would take attention away from people’s big days. Some of the grooms got cold feet and had to be talked into allowing the activity take place.

Everybody loved the surprise, however. Adam Levine stated, “It was an out of body experience. I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests.”


9. Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recorded Shake it Off as the lead single for her fifth album, “1989”. The song premiered on a Yahoo! Live stream on August 18, 2014. The studio released the video on YouTube and made the song available for digital download on the same day.

Shake it Off is Taylor Swift’s most successful Billboard Hot 100 song to date. It stayed in the chart for 50 consecutive weeks.

Mark Romanek directed the video, and it features dances choreographed by Tyce Diorio. It incorporates dancing in the styles of hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, jazz, and cheerleader – even “twerking.”

If you exclude the cartoon character of Masha, this video holds the record for the most views of a video by a female artist.


10. Bailando – Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona

Bailando is another music video that highlights the international appeal of YouTube.

Spanish singer, Enrique Iglesias, recorded Bailando for his tenth studio album, “Sex and Love” in 2014.

He recorded several versions of the song. The original Spanish version also included vocals by Cubans, Descemer Bueno, and Gente de Zona. A Spanglish version features vocals by Jamaican singer Sean Paul. Enrique Iglesias also recorded two versions in Portuguese (with different people doing the additional vocals) for different markets.

The original Spanish version acts as the theme song for the soap opera Reina de Corazones.

They recorded four music videos– one for each version of the song. They filmed the videos for the Spanish and Spanglish version of the song in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The Spanish version has proven particularly popular, having been viewed more than 2.4 million times. People have also watched the Spanglish version 250 million times.


11. Roar – Katy Perry

Who hasn’t seen the Katy Perry video for Roar, with Katy in her jungle, populated with wild animals?

She released Roar as the lead single for her 2013 album, “Prism” The lyrics focus on standing up for yourself and self-empowerment. The song was a huge success. It was certified as Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), making her the first artist to have three Diamond Awards.

The video tells a (fictional) story of Katy Perry adapting to life in the jungle after surviving a plane crash. She even tames a tiger. It was filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

When Roar reached 1 billion video views on YouTube, in July 2015, Katy Perry became the first artist to have two music videos exceed that milestone.


12. Lean On – Major Lazer and DJ Snake ft. MØ

Lean On comes from Major Lazer’s third album. “Peace is the Mission.” It is a house ballad.

In became the most streamed song of all time on Spotify in November 2015, although Drake’s One Dance overtook it the following year.

The music video for Lean On was directed by Tim Erem and filmed in India. It shows a sequence of Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake performing dance sequences.


13. Hello – Adele

English singer, Adele, released Hello in October 2015 as the lead single from her third album, “25”.

It was successful in many countries, reaching the top position across the world, including in both the UK and USA.

The music video, which stars Adele and Tristan Wilds, was directed by Xavier Dolan. It broke the record for the shortest time to reach 1 billion views on YouTube – 88 days. It currently has over 12 million likes, making it the fifth most liked video on YouTube.


14. Dark Horse – Katy Perry ft. Juicy J

Not to be outdone by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry also features two videos in this list of the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time.

Katy recorded Dark Horse with rapper Juicy J, releasing the song in September 2013.

It combines the genres of trap and hip-hop.

Pepsi used the song in a promotion. Fans could vote on Twitter whether they wanted this song or Walking on Air to be released as the first single from the album, “Prism.”

Dark Horse sold 13.2 million units and was the second-best selling song of 2014.

The video wasn’t released until February 2014. It has an Egyptian setting, where Katy plays “Katy Patra” – her version of the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.

Dark Horse was the first video from a female artist to receive 1 billion views on YouTube.


15. Blank Space – Taylor Swift

Blank Space is Taylor Swift’s second entry on this list. It comes from her fifth studio album, “1989” (as does Shake it Off).

The song was released in November 2014, and within three weeks it topped the US Billboard Hot 100, knocking Shake it Off from that position. Taylor Swift became the first woman in the chart’s history to succeed herself at the top.

Joseph Kahn was asked to direct the video. Taylor Swift liked the idea of portraying herself as a crazy villain in the video. It was partly inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” and constant tabloid gossip about Taylor Swift’s relationships.

This Is America’ gana el premio al Mejor Vídeo del Año en los Premios UK Music Video Awards.

0

El videoclip This is America del rapero, compositor, actor, guionista y comediante estadounidense Childish Gambino –el álter ego musical de Donald Glover– ha sido toda una explosión cultural desde mayo de este año. La obra, que a día de hoy ya ha acumulado más de 418 millones de visualizaciones, ha ganado el premio de Mejor Videoclip del Año en los UK Music Video Awards.

Con This Is America, que alerta sobre las importantes cuestiones sociales y éticas de Estados Unidos, Childish Gambino ha conseguido brindar el momento cultural más significativo para que su video musical se convierta en el mensaje de alarma viral. Por eso, no es de extrañar que el videoclip, calificado como el visionado obligatorio del año o de la década por Jamie Lee Courtis, sigue siendo galardonado con los premios más prestigiosos del universo musical y audiovisual.

¿Aún no sabes por qué ha conseguido hacerse tan viral?  Te lo contábamos aquí.

Este vídeo, cuya dirección ha estado a cargo de Hiro Murai, ha conseguido mantener las redes sociales ardiendo durante los últimos días. Una gran cantidad de usuarios han compartido y comentado aspectos del vídeo, pero lo que provoca que haya tanta interacción respecto a él es que tiene muchos detalles cargados de significado, con lo que cada vez que lo veas descubrirás algo nuevo. Por este motivo,  ya son muchos los que se han aventurado a lanzar sus teorías sobre los diferentes elementos, evidentes u ocultos, que aparecen en ‘This Is America‘.

En primer lugar, lo que destaca de esta pieza, es el llamativo baile que mantiene Childish Gambino en la mayoría de las escenas. Algunos de los pasos nos recuerdan a movimientos de baile que se han hecho virales en Internet. En cambio, otros proceden de bailes sudafricanos, como el Gwara Gwara, tal y como afirman muchos usuarios. Además, hay teorías sobre el gran parecido de la extravagante postura que adopta para disparar a su primera víctima con uno de los carteles de Jim Crow, un personaje creado por Thomas D. Rice a principios del siglo XIX, utilizado como personificación racista y estereotipada de la población negra. Fue tal su importancia que llegó a dar nombre a las leyes de Jim Crow, referentes a la segregación racial estadounidense.

Jim Crow This Is America

En segundo lugar, lo que más nos impacta durante la visualización de ‘This Is America‘ es la violencia con armas que tiene lugar en dos momentos clave del vídeo. El primero, en el que dispara por la espalda a un hombre encapuchado y sentado que previamente había estado tocando la guitarra. Muchos han destacado el parecido de ese individuo con el padre de Trayvon Martin, un adolescente negro que fue asesinado en Florida en el año 2012 y cuyo presunto asesino fue dejado en libertad. Sin embargo realmente se trata del artista y actor Calvin The Second. El segundo escenario clave consiste en un coro de gospel en el que son todos disparados por el cantante, recordando a la masacre de la iglesia de Charleston, en la cual un hombre inició un tiroteo asesinando finalmente a un total de nueve personas por motivos racistas. Además, después de cada ataque llega un joven que recoge el arma cuidadosamente envolviéndola con mimo en una tela roja, lo cual algunos han interpretado como una representación del cariño que tiene Estados Unidos por las armas.

En tercer lugar, el cantante y protagonista del videoclip reencarna él mismo a América, no sólo a través de sus actos violentos, sino también al utilizar a lo largo de los cuatro minutos el entretenimiento como herramienta de distracción y de normalización de la violencia.

Hasta tal punto de que si volvemos a ver el videoclip y nos fijamos en el segundo plano, nos daremos cuenta de que a espaldas de Childish Gambino tienen lugar numerosos asesinatos, suicidios y demás actos de violencia sin que nos enteremos en un primer momento, debido a lo eclipsados que quedan por los hipnóticos bailes del cantante.

En cuarto lugar, en un momento del videoclip, mientras el Childish Gambino canta «Esto es un móvil, es una herramienta» («This is a celly, that’s a tool») mientras aparecen planos de adolescentes grabando toda la escena con sus teléfonos móviles. Hay quienes piensan que se trata de una crítica a la costumbre actual de compartir escenas de violencia a través de los smartphones en lugar de involucrarse para solucionar la situación. Otras teorías más rebuscadas defienden que está relacionado con el caso de Stephon Clark, un adolescente negro que fue asesinado por disparos de la policía porque pensaban que llevaba un arma de fuego en la mano cuando realmente estaba sujetando su teléfono móvil.

Frame que protagoniza la miniatura del vídeo

En quinto lugar, también destacan las relaciones con películas como Get Out (2017) debido a la escena final de la huida, o a Django desencadenado (2012) por el frame que protagoniza la miniatura del vídeo — similar a otro que aparece en la película —, además de por los collares que lleva el protagonista. En otro momento del vídeo (2:37) aparece un jinete negro sobre un caballo blanco, lo que muchos han considerado una referencia bíblica respecto a la muerte como uno de los Jinetes del Apocalipsis. Los más rebuscados han llegado a relacionar los pantalones que lleva el protagonista de ‘This Is America‘ con el uniforme oficial que llevaban los soldados del Ejército de los Estados Confederados.

Finalmente, entre estos usuarios que se han lanzado a comentar el videoclip a través de redes sociales destacan algunas figuras destacadas como Trent Reznor, quien afirma que no recuerda la última vez que vio un videoclip hasta el final y además lo reprodujo en bucle cinco veces seguidas; Jamie Lee Curtis, la cual lo califica como el visionado obligatorio del año o de la década; o la cómica Sofía Niño de Riverala cual lo considera el mejor vídeo del año.

Kim Kardashian On Kanye West’s Political Views:

0
The second episode of Alec Baldwin’s Sunday night (Oct. 21) talk show, The Alec Baldwin Show, featured a full hour with Kim Kardashian West, during which the pair hit on a number of hot-button topics, including the long-lasting impact of a 2016 armed robbery in Paris on Kardashian’s psyche, as well as her belief that it’s perfectly okay for a couple to have very different political views.

Baldwin, a vociferous supporter of liberal causes — and not for nothing, the man behind Saturday Night Live‘s Donald Trump impression — asked Kardashian how she squares her views with the MAGA-hyping ones of hubby Kanye West. “I grew up in a household where Bruce [Jenner], who was my stepdad, had one political view and maybe my real dad had a different political view, or my mom, and we would just always talk about it and be really open about it, and it was always OK to have different views,” Kardashian said of the clash of cultures between the former Olympian [now known as Caitlyn Jenner] and her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian.

Kanye West (L) and Kim Kardashian West attend the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino presented by Gucci at LACMA on Nov. 1, 2014 in Los Angeles. 

Which is why, she told Baldwin, she let’s Ye be “who he wants to be…I let him have his own views and opinions even if they’re different than mine…I love letting my husband be who he is. [We] definitely have conversations if I don’t understand something in private and talk about that.”

In addition to describing how being married to Kanye has made her approach fame differently, Kardashian opened up about how the armed robbery of a reported $10 million in cash and jewels transformed the way she approaches being a public figure. “My life has definitely changed a lot in the last two years from that experience and just wanting more privacy,” Kardashian, 38, said. “In the last three months, I feel like I’ve come out of my shell a little bit more, back to who I was. I felt, like for a good year, I almost lost myself.”

West, who was in Paris for Fashion Week in Oct. 2016, was tied up and gagged by some gun-toting men dressed as cops who stole jewels, including a 20-carat, $4.5 million ring that was a gift from West. Though the heist didn’t necessarily make Kardashian West depressed, she said she definitely lacked the motivation to work like she did before after the scary incident. “It shook me,” she told Baldwin. “I’m totally a realist. So I know, you post on social media your locations, your jewelry, your bags, what you’re doing, where you’re going, your cars, your stuff. I would always talk about my stuff.”

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West arrive at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City on Aug. 28, 2016.

Realizing that she was measuring herself by her things, Kardashian said the robbery changed her, which she is grateful for. “Even though it was horrific, and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone,” she said. “It really did deeply change me to where now I feel like I can get back to myself, I can put on makeup and heal.” At one point, mother Kris Jenner had to convince Kardashian to get out of bed, take off her sweats and put on some makeup so she could feel like her old self again.

But the fear that gripped her slowly turned into a paranoia, leading the reality star who has made her private life a public affair for years to worry about being photographed at restaurants for fear that someone noticing she was out might rob her home while she was out. “I always had that thought in my mind of just danger,” she said. “I never thought about anything scary before, until then. I felt like I was living in a bubble, and that opened me up to so much.” The difference these days is that there are six security guards outside of the Kardashian-West home at all times now, as well as security by her side 24/7 when she travels.

Kardashian also talked about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition and when, at 25, she walked in on her stepdad dressed as a woman in the garage at Kris Jenner’s home, “and I ran in and packed a back so fast, shaking, and ran out and called Kourtney,” saying she as totally blindsided by situation, after which Caitlyn promised she would “sit down and [I’ll] explain this all to you.” She also credited Kanye’s vehement support of Pres. Trump with helping her to obtain a pardon for first-time nonviolent drug offender Alice Johnson. “Alice always says if it wasn’t for Kanye speaking up in support of Trump then she would still be in jail,” she said.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer 2019 show as part of Paris Fashion Week Week on June 21, 2018 in Paris.

Selma Blair Reveals Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis in Emotional Instagram Post

0

The actress opened up on the social media platform that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis on Aug. 16, joining the estimated 2.3 million people living with the disease which attacks the central nervous system.

Selma Blair has revealed that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The 46-year-old actress shared the news Saturday afternoon (Oct. 20) with her 648,000 followers on Instagram, posting that she was in a wardrobe fitting two days ago for her new 10-episode Netflix sci-fi series, Another Life, and the experience led her to the “deepest gratitude” for costume designer Allisa Swanson. “She carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself,” she writes. “I have Multiple Sclerosis.”

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the disease, which affects more women than men and is typically diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, is described as “an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.” With her diagnosis, Blair joins the estimated 2.3 million people living with the disease worldwide.

In her post, she continued by describing the emotional toll it has taken on her life. “I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job,” Blair said of the series on which she plays a journalist named Harper Glass in the story of an astronaut (Katee Sackhoff) on the hunt for alien intelligence. “I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken GPS. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best.”

Blair said that she received her diagnosis two months ago, on Aug. 16, and since then has received “love and support” from famous friends like Jaime King, Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prinze Jr., Tara Subkoff and Noah Newman along with Another Life executive producer Noreen Halpern.

“I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep,” she continued. “But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am OK.” (Blair is mother to one son, Arthur.)

Blair also thanked actress Elizabeth Berkley, who suggested she see her brother, Dr. Jason Berkley, who was the physician to diagnose her after discovering lesions on an MRI. “I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share.”

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member… thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. — my instagram family… you know who you are.

Swedish House Mafia will reunite with brand new music for a special Stockholm show in 2019. The EDM stars – who underwent a farewell tour in 2012 – will be back in their hometown for the first time in over six years when they play the Tele2 Arena on May 4. The exciting announcement comes after the group – made up of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello – appeared at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida earlier this year for a surprise performance, which got fans speculating about a comeback.

A statement said: ‘That dream of seeing Swedish House Mafia return has become reality as Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello have now chosen to put the past behind them and come together, not just as Swedish House Mafia but as artists, and more importantly as three best friends with a message.’

Speaking earlier this year, Steve revealed: ‘During summer everyone is travelling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more.’

Although they haven’t confirmed a release date, it was previously suggested the album could drop in time for a run on the road in 2019. He said of a tour next year: ‘It’s happening, obviously. Not all the details are set, but we will be back in 2019.’

The band’s decision to reunite comes just two years after they said they were happy doing their own thing but were adamant not to rule out a comeback in the future.Axwell explained: ‘I think we’re all in our happy places right now. Having said that it would be stupid of me to say never [to a reunion]. ‘Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says “boom”. But it’s more [likely to be] coming from us than at a festival.’
