Taylor Swift's Cat Olivia Is Prepping for Her Tour — Is She Stretching to Swift's New Playlist?
Taylor Swift is busily preparing for her stadium tour and she’s not the only one getting ready.

The “End Game” singer, 28, shared an adorable photo of one of her cats, Olivia Benson, stretching her leg upward while staring directly at the camera on Monday.

“We are all stretching to prep for that tour choreo,” Swift captioned the photo. The pose looked eerily similar to Victoria Beckham’s own signature pose.

The Grammy Award-winner also shared a Spotify playlist of her favorite songs, tweeting, “Songs I’m loving right now.”

John Waters’ Favorite Movies of 2017 Include ‘Baby Driver,’ ‘Wonderstruck’ and ‘The Strange Ones’

John Waters’ Favorite Movies of 2017 Include ‘Baby Driver,’ ‘Wonderstruck’ and ‘The Strange Ones’
John Waters has been called the “Pope of Filth,” the “Sultan of Sleeze,” the “Prince of Puke,” and the “King of Bad Taste.” Naturally, who wouldn’t want to know his favorite films of the year? Known for pushing the envelope over the edge and back again with iconic films like “Cry Baby,” “Pink Flamingoes,” and “Hairspray,” the cult filmmaker is a devoted cinephile with a wide range of interests. Waters always has a few surprises on his yearly top ten list, and 2017 is no exception.

Topping the list is Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver,” a somewhat surprising choice for the fan of all things trashy and grotesque. Making a strong showing in third place is “The Strange Ones,” a psychological thriller and feature debut by Christopher Radcliff & Lauren Wolkstein. Waters also liked Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” and Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel.”

Report Reveals ‘Class-Shaped Hole’ in UK Acting Industry

Tracy Brabin has been Member of Parliament for Batley and Spen in West Yorkshire since 2016 after a by-election triggered by the murder of Jo Cox. She considers herself part of “the exciting influx of Labour MPs in the last year, most of whom have done other jobs”. Tracy’s other job was as an actor, coming to the Labour Party after a 20 year career; breaking through in the 1989 comedy-drama “A Bit of a Do”, becoming a regular in “Coronation Street”, “Emmerdale” and “Eastenders” and later writing for “Tracey Beaker”, “Heartbeat” and “Shameless”. Last month the results of her and fellow MP Gloria de Piero’s inquiry into access and diversity in the acting industry were published, evidencing what many have known for some time: “There is a class-shaped hole in the industry”. Backstage spoke to Tracy from the Houses of Parliament about the report, an important production of “Les Mis

Nostalgia on TV? It's nothing new

Louisa Mellor Jul 19, 2016

Netflix's Stranger Things may be a nostalgia-fest, but that's not new. TV has always let us escape into comforting stories about the past…

Remember the good old days? They were good weren’t they? Not like now. It’s horrible now. That’s why everything on TV is comforting, coddling, backwards-looking fluff. We all just want to dive onto a feathery pile of period television and forget about the cruel, unsettling world of today. A world where, get this, the Soviets have gone into space. And there’s that war in Korea. Everyone’s testing hydrogen bombs all over the place, Castro’s taken over Cuba and innocent people keep getting lynched. I ask you. It’s little wonder all we want to watch on TV are cosy Westerns. Switch on Gunsmoke and all that worry melts away.

Fast-forward a few decades to now, when the release

David Suchet: 'I'd only play Poirot again in a movie'

David Suchet retired his walking stick and moustache when he left the role of iconic detective Hercule Poirot almost two years ago.

However, he has now revealed he wouldn't turn down a return as Agatha Christie's famed Belgian sleuth - although only in a film.

Suchet thinks he would be passed over for a big-name Hollywood star though, to bring in a larger audience to the movie.

Speaking to The Stage, he said: "I've said I'll only return if anyone makes a movie and they want me - which they won't because it will be Hollywood and they'll want one of the new A-listers."

Suchet played Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot for 25 years, with a final appearance in ITV's November 2013 Poirot episode 'Curtain'.

Heartbeat star Jason Durr was cast as the detective last year in a touring stage play.

Spurred by Kelly Clarkson's recent comments that she has been unable to find a suitable duet partner, Jimmy Fallon offered his services on last night's The Tonight Show. Together, the couple sang a dozen duets in a four-minute mega-medley. Much like Fallon's ongoing History of Rap series with Justin Timberlake, the late-night host and the "Heartbeat Song" singer take a similar journey through five decades of chart-topping duets, kicking things off with Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" before bringing it on home with Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love.

Starmaker Allégret: From Gay Romance with 'Uncle' (and Nobel Winner) Gide to Simon's Movie Mentor

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret.[1] The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to

"It was like one of the first [songs] I actually chose to record," Clarkson told Ryan Seacrest on his Monday morning radio show. "My music definitely reflects how I'm feeling in my life. And so, I liked that it was still an anthem, and fun, and still had a little pop to it. But it was sweet … It's pretty much one of the most pop ones on the album. You know, full force for the fans. They love those anthems from me."

Yes, we do, and this one delivers. "Heartbeat Song," produced by Greg Kurstin, is the 32-year-old's first new pop single since "Catch My Breath," "Don't Rush" and

'McFarland, USA' will close out 30th annual Santa Barbara Film Festival
A self-acknowledged "showcase for Academy Award frontrunners," the Santa Barbara International Film Festival is often overlooked for the actual films that earn it festival status. An amalgamation of international discoveries and ’merica’s circuit highlights, the Sbiff curates a week of best-of-the-best to pair with their star-praising. The 2015 edition offers another expansive selection, bookended by two films that aren’t on any radars just yet. Sbiff will open with "Desert Dancer," producer Richard Raymond’s directorial debut. Starring Reece Ritchie and Frieda Pinto, the drama follows a group of friends who wave off the harsh political climate of Iran’s 2009 presidential election in favor of forming a dance team, picking up moves from Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev thanks to the magic of YouTube. The festival will close with "McFarland, USA," starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello. Telling the 1987 true story of a Latino high school’s underdog cross-country team,

The Imitation Game review

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in The Imitation Game, a drama about British genius Alan Turing. Here's Ryan's review...

Alan Turing was among the most important British thinkers of the 20th century, yet the story of his life only fully emerged decades after his death. Turing's work during World War II, where he led a team responsible for cracking Germany's coded communications, played a huge part in the Allied victory, and his pioneering achievements in computer science are still being felt today.

Beginning in 1941, The Imitation Game introduces the 27-year-old Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose mathematical genius far outstrips his interpersonal skills. Stationed at Bletchley Park in the south of England, Turing leads a team of linguists, problem solvers and mathematicians whose job is to crack the unfeasibly complex communications code used by the Nazis. As conventional attempts to break the code prove fruitless, Turing proposes a radical new approach: construct a code-breaking
