M. Night Shyamalan first gained fame with The Sixth Sense, thanks to its brilliant, original twist ending. Since then, the director has been chasing the ever-elusive high of a similarly successful and mind-blowing surprise, which he's attempted in his successive horror and sci-fi films like The Village, Signs, and Unbreakable. Although those failed to deliver the same impact, his 2015 found-footage flick The Visit seemed to herald a return to form for Shyamalan with its simple story and fantastic, shocking conclusion. With that in mind, the writer-director's latest entry into the horror genre, Split, looked like it might be a twist-filled slam dunk at the box office. Although the film suffers from a few bloated, meandering storylines and the ending will leave some rolling their eyes, there are enough creepy, terrifying moments (and incredible performances) scattered throughout Split that will no doubt make it a notable notch on Shyamalan's belt of accomplishments. »

“Kim and Kanye seemed okay,” a source told People. “They weren’t affectionate. They walked separately into the restaurant.”
Kardashian West, 36, recently paid a visit to Dubai, where she made her first public appearance since her Paris robbery at celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic’s Master Class and spent some quality time »
Despite rumors to the contrary, rapper Kanye West was never asked to perform at “friend” President-elect Donald Trump‘s inauguration. As for what will take place, chair of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Tom Barrack, told CNN that the events planned will “be typically and traditionally American.”
“’s been great. He considers himself a friend of the President-elect, but it’s not the venue,” Barrack elaborated. “The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it’s perfect. It’s going to be typically and traditionally American.”
He added, “Kanye is a great guy but we just haven’t asked him to perform. »

This suspenseful tale is surprisingly satisfying thanks to clever plotting and a fine performance from James McAvoy as a man with two dozen personalities
The traditional response with a new M Night Shyamalan movie is, “Oh no, what’s the twist ending this time?” But Split is more of a feature-length twist: its chief antagonist has dissociative identity disorder, which means he cycles between two dozen personalities. It’s lurid and warped and more than a little dodgy, but it comes off thanks to the bravura performance – or performances – of James McAvoy, who throws himself into the role – or roles – with an admirable mix of skill and abandon.
We first meet McAvoy as Dennis, a cross-looking neat-freak who abducts three young women from the shopping mall and imprisons them in his labyrinthine underground lair. But next time he visits them, he’s Patricia, a prim English governess. Then he’s Hedwig, »

Tom Barrack, who chairs Trump’s Inaugural Committee, explained to CNN on Wednesday why Kanye West wasn’t asked to perform at this week’s inauguration — and the rapper probably won’t like it. “We haven’t asked him. I mean, he’s been great,” the chairman of Colony Capital told the network. “He considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue. The venue we have for entertainment is filled out; it’s perfect.” But then Barrack went on to describe why West wasn’t asked to join the inauguration festivities: “It’s going to be typically and traditionally American. »

Not content to wear one showstopping gown, Yara Shahidi also had a second look to slay at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards.
The Black-ish starlet, 16, arrived on the red carpet in head-turning fashion, looking gorgeous in a checkered gown from designer Virgil Abloh’s Off-White Spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection. We have a feeling Kanye West‘s Bff would’ve given her look a thumbs-up.

Kim sported an oversized black-and-red flannel shirt that she paired with a white T-shirt, skintight ripped jeans and neutral Yeezy boot heels. She was also still wearing her gold lip ring, a small wedding band and a large gold necklace. As for Kanye, he was still rocking a blonde 'do as he stepped out rocking white sneakers, ripped jeans and a gray sweatshirt.
Laurie Hernandez didn’t have a conventional childhood.
Seemingly born with the desire to swing from anything she could climb, the New Jersey native grew up with the nickname “Monkey” and by the age of 5 had ditched ballet classes for acrobatics. By the age of 9, the future Olympian was homeschooled and doing intensive training at a facility in Texas.
“I thought as a gymnast and being homeschooled that I was missing out,” says Hernandez, 16, who trained for up to 35 hours a week and missed out on birthday parties and sleepovers. “But I’ve come to realize that my friends in »

Laurie Hernandez may have poise on the balance beam, but she could barely contain her excitement while opening an envelope at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The nerves all came when the 16-year-old and some of her fellow U.S. women’s gymnastics “Final Five” team members presented the award for best female video at the VMAs in August.
“We had some amazing nominees and we weren’t sure who we were going to get, but when we opened the card and we all read ‘Beyoncé’ it wasn’t just, like, ‘And the winner is Beyoncé.’ It was, like, ‘And the winner is BEYONCÉ, »

Like the varying voices who shape James McAvoy’s performance(s) in Split, my mind is filled with conflicting opinions about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller. McAvoy’s numerous appearances make for a transfixing theatrical experience, while devotion to parbaked themes and collegiate merit make for a jumbled, messy commentary on trauma. Shyamalan plays towards empowering the victim, but loses control of sci-fi terror in doing so. Anya Taylor-Joy proves to be the new genre “It” girl, there’s strength in numbers and we certainly need to talk about Kevin (McAvoy’s true character) – so why the feelings of indifference?
Kevin Wendell Crumb (McAvoy) suffers from a severe case of multiple personalities, twenty-three of whom reside inside his singular body. It’s one of these inhabitants who decides to kidnap three teenage girls with ceremonial intent. Casey (Taylor-Joy), Claire (Haley Lu Richardson) and Marcia (Jessica Sula) are in the »

If you’ve ever watched an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and found yourself wondering why everyone keeps shouting “Bible!” at one another, then you’re probably in need of a little KarJenner vocab refresher.
Fortunately, the sisters regularly take to their website and apps to share specially curated lists of their favorite family slang. So without further ado, here’s a deep dive into the language of America’s reality television royalty.
For the KarJenners, the word “facts,” unsurprisingly, means expressing “the truth, the real deal, what really happened,” explains Kim.

Rapper T.I. believes that Donald Trump is meeting with people like Kanye West, Steve Harvey, Martin Luther King III and Jim Brown in order to appeal to African-Americans — and divide them. The rapper aka Tip uploaded a series of videos to his social media account on Monday in which he called on the black population to not accept invitations to meet with the President-elect — because even if the meeting seems friendly, there’s always a hidden agenda. “I’m gonna tell all you celebrities — black, minority, all of you, athletes — there’s a strategic plan that people are trying to make. »

The insider adds that “Trump’s people never even asked” West to perform.
The chairman of Trump’s presidential inaugural committee also previously told CNN that while “Donald is a great admirer of Kanye,” West would not be performing.
West, 39, made headlines in December when he visited the president-elect at Trump Tower and then posed for photos. Trump told reporters that he and West have “been friends for a long time,” and said they discussed “life. »

Steve Harvey is apologizing.
The Steve Harvey Show host tweeted out that he is sorry after racist jokes he made about Asian men on a recent episode sparked major backlash on social media.
"I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week," the 60-year-old TV host tweeted. "It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."
The segment in question aired on Jan. 6, and featured Harvey mocking a 15-year-old book, titled, How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men.
"'Excuse me, do you like Asian men?'" Harvey suggested the book should read. "'No, thank you.'"
"I don't even like Chinese food, boy. I don’t stay with you no time »

Since then, she and husband Kanye West have gradually been easing their way back into the spotlight. The two were recently spotted enjoying a sushi date in Los Angeles, following their visit to Beyoncé and Jay Z's home in Holmby Hills, California »
