Madonna Hits Back at 'Ageist' and 'Sexist' Critics of Her Met Gala Look: It 'Was a Political Statement'

5 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Madonna is hitting back at critics over her risqué outfit choices. The style risk taker raised the wow factor yet again at the Met Gala on Monday when she arrived in a breast and booty-bearing sheer ensemble by Givenchy. While many criticized her for choosing such a revealing getup, Madge explained on Wednesday that her Met look was a "political statement" in support of gender equality. "We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women's rights we are still in the dark ages," Madonna explained in a lengthy caption on Instagram. »

Nashville Recap: Oscar? You Barely Know Her! Plus — Maddie's Verdict

13 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Nashville recap here.

It’s hard to say which development requires a greater suspension of disbelief in this week’s Nashville: Juliette’s nomination for a Best Actress Academy Award (?!) or her snap realization that not only is Layla sleeping with Avery, Ms. Grant is on a vengeful tear to destroy everything the Shenandoah girl holds dear.

Hey, it’s not like there’s no precedent for a singer-turned-actress to nab a major award early in her acting career. But for every JHud-in-Dreamgirls and Cher-in-Moonstruck, there’s a Mariah-Carey-in-Sparkle and a Madonna-in-Shanghai Surprise. »

The Current Debate: Beyoncé’s "Lemonade"

4 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It would be insufficient, writes Carrie Battan, to call Beyoncé’s Lemonade an album: “The project is also a piece of spoken word, a narrative film, a map of cultural reference points, and a window into the soul of an icon whose inner life has always seemed just out of reach.” Battan’s description hints at what has so excited the Internet in the week and a half since Lemonade’s release: it’s not only a new Beyoncé album—it’s also her most personal work yet, and one that, as Ash Sarkar notes at the London Review of Books, is uniquely political:“How has this happened? How has Beyoncé engendered such a deep sense of solidarity among women and the marginalised? Most reviewers have pointed out that Lemonade is Beyoncé’s most personal and political work to date, but few have interrogated how the album moves between the two. »

The Magnificent Remake: How and Why Remade Movies Succeed and Fail

22 April 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on remakes, and how and why they success and fail…

Harking back to the days of big stars headlining even bigger films, The Magnificent Seven trailer exploded online this week showcasing the always A-list Denzel Washington alongside, among others, Hollywood’s newest megastar Chris Pratt, in a remake of the legendary 1960’s Yul Brynner headlining Western. It’s just one of a flood of remakes we’ve seen over the last decade, a tide that shows no sign of slowing down with dozens more either about to land, or in production and pre-production. Edward Gardiner here on Flickering Myth recently argued how it’s fine to enjoy remakes of the classic movies we enjoyed as children or younger adults, and while many never recapture the glory of the original they do at least bring great pictures back into the public consciousness.

Cable TV Nets Announce Tributes to Prince

21 April 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

MTV, MTV2 and VH1 will pay homage to Prince by airing a block of the late musician’s most iconic music videos.

MSNBC has announced it will air a live hour devoted to Prince’s legacy Thursday at 10 p.m. Et, hosted by Brian Williams including interviews with his friends, fans and associates.

Bet will continue paying tribute with a music video marathon across its four channels for up to 48 hours on Bet, Bet Soul, Bet Jams and Centric.

Prince, who won seven Grammys throughout the duration of his 35-year music career, was found dead in his Minnesota home Thursday morning at the age of 57.

MTV will replace its previously scheduled TV content with the music videos of Prince classics like “Kiss,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Raspberry Beret” and “When Doves Cry.”

Aside from the programming, the music-centric network commemorated the music legend by changing its iconic logo from yellow to purple. »

Music Icon Prince Dead at 57

21 April 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Music icon Prince, who won multiple Grammy awards as well as an Oscar during his storied four-decade career, has died. He was 57.

According to TMZ, which first broke the news, Prince’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday.

Prince cancelled a pair of concerts in Atlanta earlier this month, citing the flu. A week later, his private jet had to make an emergency landing in Moline Ill., when he fell ill.

Strike a Pose

19 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience is at the Tribeca Film Festival. Here's Manuel on Strike a Pose.

Perhaps it’s unfair to compare Strike a Pose with Madonna: Truth or Dare. After all, that now iconic documentary is really on a league of its own. Then again, this newer doc, which focuses on the male dancers from that 1991 film (and from the Material Girl’s Blond Ambition Tour) cannot help but drum up the comparisons. As a pseudo-sequel to Truth or Dare, Strike a Pose is perhaps less enthralling—no Warren Beatty or Antonio Banderas here—but just as entertaining. And while the first twenty or so minutes of the film do indeed feel like a sequel in spirit if not in name (we get to revisit the tour and the doc in ways that show us how much these dancers kept to themselves even as they seemingly opened up their lives for »

Guy Ritchie and Madonna -- From Whining to Wining (Photos)

19 April 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Guy Ritchie and Madonna have both done a 180 since Rocco bailed on her ... they're now co-parents who can share a bottle of wine. Guy arrived at Madonna's house in London Monday night, armed with a half-full bottle of wine. Guy and Madonna would have called it half empty just a month ago, when they were at war over Rocco. The judge told them to work it out like adults. They clearly have, and Rocco has responded well. »

Harker’s Hits: Hollywood

14 April 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

There’s no such thing as quiet days in Hollywood. There’s always something happening and today is no exception, so let’s jump right into the fray!

• Oscar-winning legend Warren Beatty’s been keeping a fairly low profile since his wildly expensive Town & Country bombed 15 years ago. But apparently the lothario (long-rumored to be the subject of Carly Simon’s enduring hit “You’re So Vain”) is coming out of semi-retirement as news broke that his pet project based on the life of famed millionaire/movie producer/shut-in Howard Hughes will be released this fall. (He’s been working on this since the ’70s as writer, director, producer, and star.) What’s of more interest to me/us is that he also said he’s working on a sequel to his uber-stylish, three-time Oscar-winning comic-book adaptation Dick Tracy. No word on whether bold-name costars like Annette Bening, Al Pacino, »

Warren Beatty Considers A "Dick Tracy" Sequel

13 April 2016 8:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Over a quarter century since its release, Warren Beatty is reportedly considering making a sequel to his 1990 film adaptation of the "Dick Tracy" comics.

Beatty, Al Pacino, Madonna, Dustin Hoffman and Dick Van Dyke starred in the original which made nearly $163 million on a $47 million production budget and boasted a bright, comic book sensibility. A sequel has been talked about for years but was only possible after a rights dispute was settled in 2013.

Producer Arnon Milchan revealed the news whilst receiving the Legends of Cinema Award at CinemaCon on Wednesday, saying Beatty was "very serious" about the project. Following that, Beatty confirmed the news saying: "I'm serious about it, but I am slow about these things."

Milchan added that he hopes the project will be completed within two years. Milchan's New Regency Productions is also producing Beatty's long-gestating Howard Hughes biopic in which he plays the aged billionaire. That film, »

Warren Beatty Eyeing ‘Dick Tracy’ Sequel, Howard Hughes Movie Gets Release Date

13 April 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: More than a quarter century after he brought Dick Tracy to the screen, Warren Beatty is considering making a sequel.

The news was revealed by Arnon Milchan on Wednesday at CinemaCon, as the producer accepted the Legends of Cinema Award from Beatty.

Asked after the lunch ceremony about the project, Beatty confirmed, “I’m serious about it, but I am slow about these things.” He was whisked away by a crowd of admirers before he could make any additional comments. But Milchan also confirmed that a project is being discussed and could be completed within two years.

Beatty is already at work on a film in which he plays the aged billionaire Howard Hughes. That movie is also for Milchan’s New Regency Productions, the powerhouse production company that won best picture awards for “12 Years a Slave” and “Birdman.” They expect a fall or winter release for Beatty’s long-gestating passion project, »
