Jared Leto halts Thirty Seconds To Mars gig to criticise ‘aggressive’ security’s handling of fans

0

“You do not need to take that guy down. You guys are being too aggressive tonight,” he said, pointing out one fan in particular who was being manhandled by ‘seven guys’. “Do not abuse this guy, okay? Relax, settle down, don’t escalate the situation. That’s fine but there’s seven guys like on top of this guy. It’s ridiculous,” he continued. “I know it’s a funny thing. It happens when you get too many security guards in one building, there’s always problems, there’s always problems, guys. Settle down, just take care of each other, just take care of each other.” One fan who posted the footage on Instagram said that guards were “screaming at us and flashing there [sic] lights in our faces.”

Nick Cannon defends Kevin Hart by posting “homophobic” tweets from Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer

0

“I wonder if there was any backlash here.”

Nick Cannon has attempted to defend Kevin Hart by unearthing controversial tweets from high profile figures including Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler. Celebrated comedian Hart stepped down from the Oscars on Friday after a series of seemingly homophobic tweets were unearthed earlier in the week. In one, he said: “If my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay’.” In the wake of the controversy, Hart offered his resignation and said he did not “want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists.”But on Friday evening, Cannon attempted to defend Hart by sharing material from other comedians that he deemed to be similarly contentious. In one tweet from 2011, Chelsea Handler is seen referring to “f*g birds”, while the slur is also used by both Silverman and Schumer in other tweets from over seven years ago. Justifying his actions, Cannon subsequently wrote: “You know I’ve been saying fucked up shit since twitter started! I don’t play that politically correct bullshit! Fuck politics!! Only Truth!”

Although Handler and Schumer are yet to respond, Silverman shared a Twitter thread that offered a justification for their tweets. In it, writer Greg Hogben claimed that the use of the slur was justified because all three have previously proved themselves to be active allys of the LGBT community.

“The thing is, a lot of gay guys didn’t take offence to these comments, because we didn’t feel the violence or malicious intent behind it. Because we knew they were jokes. Because we knew these people were LGBT allies,” he wrote.

But Hogben argues that Hart does not have “a history of helping at risk LGBT youth. To be honest, his tweets and his stand-up gig saying he’d ‘do anything not to have a gay son,’ made me bristle. In short, it *felt malicious.”

0

Popular role-playing game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius’ newest character is going to “Roar.” On Wednesday (Dec. 12), Katy Perry will be joining the playable lineup and debuting a new song upon her entry into the mobile game world. Perry’s new soaring anthem, “Immortal Flame,” can be previewed in a video promoting her new endeavor. The visual shows Perry playing with her phone and dog, eventually putting on an elaborate blue dress and being pixilated into the game.   Although Perry’s appearance in the Final Fantasy series is exciting, she’s not the first pop star to be featured. Ariana Grande — Billboard’s Woman of the Year — previously appeared in the game for a limited time beginning Jan. 2, 2017.

Lady Gaga attends a photocall for the film "A Star is Born" presented out of competition on Aug. 31, 2018 during the 75th Venice Film Festival at Venice Lido.

Perry is no stranger to the gaming world. She was the star of a Sims 3 expansion pack in 2012, and even had her own mobile game, Katy Perry Pop, debut in 2015.

Kevin Hart to host the Oscars

0

El actor estadounidense Kevin Hart anunció este martes en su cuenta de Instagram que será el presentador de la 91 edición de los Óscar, que se celebrará el 24 de febrero de 2019 en el Teatro Dolby de Los Ángeles (EE UU). “Durante años me han preguntado si alguna vez presentaría los Óscar y mi respuesta siempre fue la misma… Dije que sería una oportunidad como comediante única en la vida y que sucedería cuando tuviera que suceder”, explicó. “Estoy muy feliz de decir que ese día ha llegado finalmente”, agregó. Hart aseguró que es “increíble” poder unirse a la “legendaria lista” de personalidades que se han desempeñado como maestros de ceremonias en la gala más importante del cine. “Agradezco a la Academia de Hollywood por la oportunidad… Ahora toca estar a la altura”, cerró. Hart (Filadelfia, 1979) es uno de los cómicos más populares de Estados Unidos en la actualidad y en su filmografía destacan cintas como “Ride Along” (2014), “Central Intelligence” (2016) o “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (2017). Su última cinta, hasta la fecha, es “Night School” (2018), una comedia en la que compartió protagonismo con Tiffany Haddish. Hart recogerá el relevo de Jimmy Kimmel, que tomó las riendas de los Óscar en las dos últimas ediciones, y tratará de mejorar los datos televisivos de esta ceremonia, que en los últimos años ha visto disminuir su público en EE.UU. y que en 2018 registró el peor dato de audiencia de su historia.

Rapper Cardi B posted a video on her Instagram account announcing that she and her husband Offset have broken up.

in the video Cardi tells fans:

“So everybody been bugging me and everything. And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners… He’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time. It’s nobodies fault it’s just I guess we grew out of love.”

Offset also left a comment in the post stating, “Y’all won.”

The pair married back in September of 2017 and have a daughter named Kulture. She is Cardi’s first child and Offset’s fourth. Keep it locked here for more details. No one saw this coming. Cardi and Offset, who share their four-month-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, just took the stage together at the 2018 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Inglewood, Calif. on Nov. 30. Their time on stage certainly didn’t hint at their failed marriage! The former couple shared a sweet kiss, and Offset even laid his hands on Cardi’s butt. “Thank you husband. He’s so fine,” she had told the audience. “That’s my baby daddy yo.” The Migos member was just as proud of the mother to his child in a recent interview!
