Katy Perry Probably (Definitely) Shades Taylor Swift on Twitter, Without Saying a Word

13 July 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's been quite a day for Taylor Swift. After a bunch of drama involving her former flame Calvin Harris, the pop star's old nemesis stepped into the ring. On Wednesday, Katy Perry tweeted the following Gif of Hillary Clinton - who, as you might recall, she's officially endorsed as president - with no words to accompany it: pic.twitter.com/m6ebYV8D1r - Katy Perry (@katyperry) July 13, 2016 Of course, we can't say for sure that it's directed at Taylor, but let's take a minute to look at the context. All the drama started when Taylor's rep exclusively confirmed to People that she wrote Calvin's new Summer jam, "This Is What You Came For." Shortly thereafter, Calvin Harris went off on the pop star in a series of tweets claiming Taylor's team is deliberately trying to make him look bad. He also urged Tay to focus on her relationship »

Calvin Harris Claims Taylor Swift's Team Is Deliberately Trying to Make Him Look Bad in a Series of Tweets

13 July 2016 9:49 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The never-ending saga that is Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris's breakup has just taken an interesting turn. Early Wednesday morning, Taylor's rep confirmed exclusively to People magazine that Calvin's latest hit song, "This Is What You Came For" featuring Rihanna, was penned by none other than his pop star ex, saying, "Taylor Swift wrote 'This Is What You Came For' under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg." TMZ further reported that the "New Romantics" singer initially "wrote the song, sat down at a piano and did a demo into her iPhone" before sending it to her then-boyfriend, who agreed to keep their musical collaboration a secret. That all apparently changed, however, when Calvin later told Ryan Seacrest that he couldn't see himself ever working with Taylor on music in the future, which supposedly left her feeling dejected. But is that the reason Taylor moved on so quickly with current boyfriend Tom Hiddleston? »

General Hospital Spoilers: Sonny Frets Over Morgan and Kiki

29 June 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Sonny’s worries over Morgan’s reliance on Kiki seem to become justified on an all-new General Hospital. We all know that Sonny is never one to back down or shy away from speaking his mind, especially when he feels that someone else is incorrect. He feels that Morgan needs to back down and stop relying on Kiki so much. The reliance is not healthy, and he’s worried. He’s already spoken up, but his words of warning seems to have no effect on Kiki or on Morgan, and he’s going to be saying “I told you so,” before much longer. It turns

Review: The ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘BastardBowl’ Brings About A Whole New World Order

Last Week’S Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Keeps The Violence Off Screen As Battles Build

Every week this season, Indiewire will be bringing you a unique collection of viewpoints on “Game of Thrones,” as it is a show that elicits a unique sort of reactions. Our writers are well-versed in the world of the show and the culture surrounding it, and we look forward to seeing how their opinions fare in the cutthroat world of Westeros… Sorry, that is, the cutthroat world of television criticism.

What Happened This Week?

If you were thinking that this week’s episode would be nothing but epic battles, you were technically incorrect. That said, there were two important battlefield clashes in “The Battle of Bastards.”

First, Daenerys fought off slaver forces with both dragons and diplomacy, per the advice of Tyrion — because no one tells Daenerys that her reign is over. In fact, her reign has just begun, »

Who's the Best Dad on Television?

19 June 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Over the course of our lives, our real-life parents can teach us important lessons and skills but TV parents can teach us a lot of things too -- sometimes in 22 minutes or less. From Ward Cleaver to Al Bundy, TV fathers run the whole gamut of ideal to awful. But what do you think?

Who's the best dad on television, past or present? Is it the Festivus-loving Frank Constanza? The goofy Phil Dunphy? Classic Jim Anderson on Father Knows Best? Fun loving Louis Huang on Fresh Off the Boat? Maybe even the menacing meth kingpin Walter White?

We want to know. Tell us in the comments who you think is the best dad on television. »

9 Reasons Being an Actor Is the Absolute Worst

20 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

If anyone tried to discourage you from following your dreams, allow them to say, “I told you so!” Being an actor is the worst. Here are nine reasons why.   1. You have to make tons of friends doing tons of different gigs. 2. You have to laugh. A lot.  3. You have to wear elaborate, fabulous costumes.  4. You have to do homework.    (Like watching films to pick up tips from acting greats.) 5. You have to have beautiful, professional photos of yourself taken.  6. You occasionally have to dress up and schmooze with really unattractive and talentless people.  7. People applaud for you literally all the time. Ugh, enough already!!!  8. You have to express your feelings in a healthy, therapeutic way by singing and dancing.  9. No one’s creating interesting projects anymore...  Seriously, no one.  I mean, is it too much to ask that someone create something innovative and groundbreaking for once?  Really, being an actor is a complete waste. »

Film Review: ‘Alienated’

3 April 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disgruntled fantasy fans who found “The Witch” or “It Follows” too slow, talky and slim on conventional payoff will be apoplectic over the purported sci-fier “Alienated,” which advertises itself as being an alien-invasion tale. Imagine their emotions upon discovering they’ve actually signed on for 80 minutes of sniping between two ill-matched spouses, with just a blip of bookending genre material. The bait-and-switch might be excusable if Brian Ackley’s feature were a good marital relationship drama, but the divorce-ready characters prove as irksome for viewers as they are for each other. The movie is bravely playing a few U.S. theaters (it opened March 19 in New York, then added Boston, with Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles to come), but will likely make less noise than its argumentative protags. More entertaining than anything on screen will be the eventual responses of average VOD renters lured by the promised theme — particularly »

The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD – 6 Small Changes Worth Knowing

31 March 2016 4:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Nintendo

After the HD release of Wind Waker in 2013, Nintendo wanted to remind its fans that both The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and the Wii U itself are still worth playing, hopefully proving that there’s life in the old dog yet.  Or, at least until the Nx is revealed and hype levels for Nintendo fans go through the roof. Twilight Princess, of course, occupies a strange place in Nintendo’s oft-discussed history; once envisioned as a Nintendo GameCube exclusive, its release date was pushed further and further back until we found ourselves in late 2006 with the Wii launch imminent.

Thus, Twilight Princess straddled two systems, acting simultaneously as a swansong for the GameCube and a triumphant launch title for the Wii, all whilst everyone waited for Super Mario Galaxy (which was still a full year away from release). It showcased motion controls, a right-handed Link and was »

12 WrestleMania 32 Worries For Smart Marks

30 March 2016 4:46 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Smart marks. Internet marks. Intelligent dupes. Neck-bearded keyboard warriors. Whatever your chosen term for the studious super fans that drown twitter in their tears every Monday night, they are primed for the showcase of the immortals. Ready with their battle cries of “I told you so” and “why do you hate your fans?!”. They’re like this most years, of course, but this time is special.

WrestleMania 32 represents a crossroads for the company. Down one road, an extreme change in the company’s creative direction and all the exciting turmoil that comes with it. Down the other lies a cruel bait-and-switch and another decade of corporate prescriptivism. Guess which one The Smarks are expecting.

As well as death or freedom for long time fans, this ‘Mania is stacked with concerns that only come around this time of year. If you spent your tax rebate last April printing off »

Randy Travis' Silence Speaks Volumes as He Accepts Hall of Fame Honor

29 March 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A massive stroke in 2013 left Randy Travis with a vocabulary limited mostly these days to "yes" and "no." But on Tuesday, he haltingly coaxed out two more words - "thank you" - as he accepted country music's highest honor: a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Struggling to say more, the 56-year-old artist finally motioned for his wife, Mary, to take over what she herself called the "daunting task of being the voice of this man who so eloquently put words to melody to make beautiful music." The poignant moment capped the announcement of the Hall's 2016 class, which »

Mindy Newell: Being Different

28 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Part I: Wow!

“Two years ago writer G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona and I created a story about a young woman with dreams of being ‘normal.’” Her name is Kamala Khan and she’s a Muslim American girl from Jersey City. We comic folks call her Ms. Marvel.” Kamala’s story shows how “being ‘normal’ isn’t one race, one gender, one point of view. Being ‘normal’ is being different. And being different is being American.”

Sana Amanat, Director of Content & Character Development, Marvel Entertainment, Co-Creator of Marvel Comics’ Ms. Marvel • From her introduction of President Obama at the White House Reception for Women’s History Month, March 16, 2016

[Review] Alienated

24 March 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Who isn’t self-centered? If you find someone, please let me know, because I don’t think that person exists. Even when we are at our most compassionate, empathetic, or charitable, our actions are still our own. We do what we do out of love — molding our lives as society or religion deems moral. Action or inaction is a choice no one can make for us. Our weakness or strength allows us to be manipulated or stand tall, not the other person’s ability to sell. And this fact is only amplified with marriage. We go in believing love to be a great unifier, erasing the board on individuality so a team can take its place. Instead, doing something for your spouse may actually be the most selfish act of all.

With a central conceit revolving around a possible alien invasion, it’s easy to perhaps be disappointed to learn »

10 Wild WrestleMania 32 Predictions That Could Come True

28 February 2016 5:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It’s that time of the year again, when WWE smarks make outlandish predictions for the upcoming WrestleMania which have almost zero per cent chance of ever happening.

While select WWE fans still cling to the hope of Cm Punk making a grand return before WrestleMania 32, others are frantically trying to figure out how Goldberg could fit into their fantasy card which includes the debuts of Finn Balor and Baylor soon before The Rock has an impromptu match with Stone Cold Steve Austin for the Hardcore Championship.

So maybe some of the fantasy-booked cards out there aren’t that bad, but you get the idea.

It’s highly unlikely anything more earth shattering than Shane McMahon returning will happen in the lead-up to WrestleMania 32, but there are still five weeks of WWE programming to go before what has been dubbed ‘the biggest WrestleMania ever’ in the Dallas Cowboys’ home of At&T Stadium. »

‘Fuller House’ Creator Jeff Franklin Explains How the Reboot Almost Didn’t Happen

25 February 2016 2:22 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jeff Franklin created “Full House” in 1987 when he was in his 30s. The show ran for eight seasons and 192 episodes. Nearly three decades later, now in his early 60s, Franklin is still in awe of the “Full House” legacy — and he can’t believe he’s finally bringing the show back.

“There’s probably not a lot of 61-year-olds running TV comedies, if I had to guess. I’m very fortunate to be still around and still at it,” Franklin says.

With the huge syndication success and nostalgic fandom “Full House” has created, it seems that a revival was inevitable. So why is Franklin feeling so fortunate? Well, because a new show almost didn’t happen, he says.

“I started back in 2007 with this idea and I’ve been trying to get it set up, off and on — it took six or seven years for me to get this going, »
