Arnold Schwarzenegger Blasts Indiana's Anti-Gay Law

3 April 2015 3:20 PM, PDT

Indiana's religious freedom law just got a very powerful new enemy: the "Governator" himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The former California Governor - an outspoken Republican - expressed his anger and disappointment over what he sees as his party's discriminatory agenda in an op-ed for the Washington Post. "I'm incredibly concerned about what happened in Indiana this week and the threat of similar laws being passed in other states," he wrote, adding, "As a Republican, I'm furious." Schwarzenegger is referring to the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signed into Indiana law on Thursday by Republican Governor Mike Pence. Those who oppose the See more »

Empire Releases First New Season Two Songs (Including a Pitbull One)

3 hours ago

 Three weeks before #EmpireSeason2 debuts, Fox has released the first new tunes that the Lyon clan will be working on when the music-biz soap returns. First up is the Pitbull song "No Doubt About It," performed alongside Jussie Smollett, which is charming not just for confirming that Mr. Worldwide exists in the Empire universe, but also for Pitbull's total commitment to name-checking "Jamal." (If it sounds like a Ne-Yo song, that's because he co-wrote it.)The other is "Ain't About the Money," which, rather than being another reworking of an '80s classic, is a Smollett-Yazz collaboration that practically begs for a See more »

Co-director, co-writer and star Rémy Bennett plays Pernilla, a young woman in New York, stunned by news that a See more »
