No, Wgn America’s second scripted original isn’t set on a certain overpopulated island, and it’s not a guide to mixing the perfect whisky-vermouth-bitters concoction. Instead, it’s a stylish retro drama about the men and women commissioned by the United States to create the world’s first atomic bomb—or, as one scientist wryly informs another in the following exclusive trailer, a device the team “prefers to call a gadget.”
Not already intrigued? Take a look at the extended promo, which starts out with old-timey newsreel footage before segueing into actual scenes from the series. You’ll »

A germaphobe, an anorexic and a guy with Tourette’s syndrome embark on a long journey in “The Road Within,” and if you’ve heard this one before, it may be because you’ve already experienced “Vincent Wants to Sea,” the 2010 German dramedy that provides an almost scene-for-scene blueprint for writer-director Gren Wells’ American remake. Similarly calculating in its bid for laughs and tears, this tale of three twentysomething misfits boasts a somewhat rougher indie edge than its more polished predecessor, a stylistic decision that suits the bristling and committed performances by Robert Sheehan, Dev Patel and Zoe Kravitz. Still, there remains a nagging tidiness to the whole endeavor that leaves a strained, cloying aftertaste, suggesting commercial performance in line with the picture’s overall modest impact.
“Amy Winehouse sucks my cock!” turns out to be one of the more printable things involuntarily uttered by Vincent (Sheehan), a young man »

Lana Del Rey got Frances Bean Cobain's attention when she told the Guardian earlier this month, "I wish I was dead already." She was talking, at the time, about her heroes, including Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, and admitted that she sees dying young as glamorous. Frances Bean Cobain responded on Twitter, the New York Daily News reports, though the original tweets have apparently been taken down: "The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize … I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool.'" »

As a country, England is going through something of a rough patch. The combined effects of economic instability, a distrust of our politicians and the typically bad English weather have all led to our little island going through a turbulent few years. To make matters worse, England’s woeful World Cup stint meant that even the prospect of some footballing heroics in Brazil wouldn’t lift our spirits.
House prices may be sky-high and the football squad may end up coming back from Brazil without a single victory but this shouldn’t mean that we lose faith in our country and the many great things it stands for. From the trivial to the grand, the comic to the magnificent; there are many things to love about our sceptered isle – this is what keeps us loving our country in spite of its atrocious weather, political »

Lana Del Rey ignited a firestorm a few weeks ago when she told a reporter for U.K. newspaper The Guardian that she wished she were dead already. In the article, the singer, whose new album, “Ultraviolence,” will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week, brings up Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse and admits that she thinks their early deaths help make them more glamorous. Now, Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, has jumped into the fray to remind Del Rey that when people like her dad die young there’s really nothing glamorous about it. In a series of tweets posted Sunday night, Cobain, 21, said (we’re stringing them all together here and using her spelling and shorthand): “@Lana Del Rey the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize…I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat »
Francis Bean Cobain is giving Lana Del Rey a harsh dose of reality.The daughter of the late Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain and Hole rocker Courtney Love took to her Twitter page to weigh in on Lana's controversial new interview with The Gaurdian, where she glamorizes death. "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticise," Francis posted (and later deleted). "I'll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it's 'cool,'" she added. "Well, it's f--king not. Embrace life, because you only get one life." In the "Radio" singer's interview with The Guardian she lists Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse as her musical inspirations -- and when asked if dying young is "glamorous" the 28-year-old revealed, "I don't know. Ummm, yeah." The singer also said "I wish I was dead already," and calls her life "a really f--ked up movie. »

Even though Lana Del Rey recently recanted her comments about wanting to be dead like her idols Janis Joplin, Elvis, Amy Winehouse, and Kurt Cobain, Cobain's daughter Frances Bean isn't thrilled that Del Rey threw around her father's name like that in the first place. She tweeted: “the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticise ... I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it’s ‘cool' ... Well, it’s f**king not. Embrace life, because you only get one life."

Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of grunge rock icon Kurt Cobain, advised Lana Del Rey to “embrace life” on Sunday in response to the pop star's apparent death wish. “I wish I was dead already,” Del Ray told The Guardian during an interview earlier this month in which she was discussing music idols including Amy Winehouse and the Nirvana frontman, who both died at just 27.

Lana Del Ray is lashing out at the journalist after The Guardian published a semi-controversial story last week that shocked fans.
The article in question was written by Tim Jonze with the headline "Lana Del Rey: .I Wish I Was Dead Already.'" In the piece, Jonze quotes the singer as saying, "I wish I was dead already" and "I do! I don't want to have to keep doing this...Everything. That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way, then I wouldn't say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but..." Rey also claimed her music idols are Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, who both died at age 27.
Ray took to Twitter to blast the article, Jonze and The Guardian's music critic Alexis Petridis. The tweets have been deleted later.

Frances Bean Cobain Says Dying Young Isn't 'Cool'
Earlier this month, Del Rey was promoting her newest album Ultraviolence when she claimed to wish she were dead in an interview with The Guardian.

Ummm, yeah,” when asked if she thought early death was glamorous. When the interviewer protested, Del Rey insisted that she truly did wish she were dead already.

There aren't many singers who can take on a Whitney Houston classic and do it justice. But Sam Smith can. The British singer, 22, performed a stripped down version of Houston's "How Will I Know" for SirusXM Radio where he showcases just how impressive his vocal abilities are. Many singers would be frightened to tackle a Houston song, but Smith says he finds inspiration in the iconic divas of the past. "I love legends like Whitney Houston," Smith tells People. "I love female voices and female divas. I find Amy Winehouse so iconic. Everything about her, just the way she looks. »

Last week, when Lana Del Rey told Guardian writer Tim Jonze, "I wish I was dead already," she was referring to a slew of ill-fated performers he brought up — Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix — as inspirations. Jonze lead with that quote (as you would), and it quickly spread throughout the web (as salacious things also naturally do). In response, Lana took to Twitter to clear things up, sort of: "Alexis was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles ... Maybe he’s actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about. His leading questions about death and persona were calculated.” (Clarification: She means Jonze, not Alexis Petridis, who wrote the Guardian's Ultraviolence album review and whose name is confusingly displayed in larger font above Jonze's on the offending article.) In turn, Jonze posted the recording of their conversation.In the recording, »

On Orange Is the New Black, Jackie Cruz's Flaca is one of the witty Latinas now manning the kitchen.

Vulture caught up with Cruz this week at the premiere of Paul Haggis’s Third Person — hosted by the Cinema Society and Revlon at the Jimmy at the James Hotel.
