It's the end for Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik and she breaks down in tears while performing in New York City this week as it appears the split is taking its toll. The Little Mix singer, who was dumped by fiancé Zayn Malik last month after four years together, started crying after singing their track 'The End' during the band's 4th anniversary global live stream fan event. The blonde beauty, 22, was immediately comforted by her bandmates, who gave her a brief group hug before Jesy Nelson admitted: "It's been a long day." Many of the 'Black Magic' hitmaker's fans, who posted video footage of the incident on Instagram, also offered words of support from the crowd, shouting: "We love you Perrie." The sexy singer previously insisted she was having "an absolute blast" in the Us since splitting from the former One Direction singer. Asked about life following their break up, »
Little Mix won't be part of any circus act anytime soon. The British girl group composed of Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson have decided to partner up with PETA to help animals currently performing in acts around the world. Wearing heavy chains and sitting on a circus-style pedestal, the "Black Magic" singers keep their facial expressions serious as the words "Get Wild Animals Out of the Circus!" flash across the ad. "We were shocked to learn that wild animals are still suffering in circuses," Pinnock shared in a statement posted on the nonprofit's website. "Animals don't jump through rings of fire for fun—they do so out of »
Take that, Zayn Malik! The slightly embattled star's ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards took to the stage at the Teen Choice Awards tonight to prove that she's not letting the end of her engagement get in the way of her rockin' music career. She joined her fellow Little Mix members for a performance of "Black Magic," and they really went all out. Seriously, they had everything—pyrotechnics, special effects and a wardrobe change included. Perrie and her bandmates started out dressed as schoolgirls in a classroom, and transformed themselves in a flash to the Little Mix we know so well (yes, that means crop tops and miniskirts). It's hard not to think that Perrie jumped on that Revenge »

The departure comes at a time of change at the Weinstein Co., which last week lost chief operating officer David Glasser. Sources tell Variety that the decision to leave the company was amicable. A source adds that TWC will keep the Radius label.
In a short period of time, Radius-twc made a formidable name for itself, particularly in the alternative distribution space, putting up impressive numbers by releasing indies such as “Snowpiercer” simultaneously in theaters and on video-on-demand. And just last spring, Radius-twc scored its biggest hit with “It Follows,” a low-budget horror film that grossed nearly $15 million after a lengthy run on the festival circuit.
The company also carved out a niche in the documentary space, scoring Oscars »

Little Mix will embrace their ''inner weirdness'' on their new album. The 'Black Magic' hitmakers are looking forward to the release of their LP, aptly titled 'Get Weird', and insist it will have more of a pop edge to it than the last one. Perrie Edwards said: ''Well, we're all about embracing our inner weirdness. We think it's fun to be individual, it's fun to be out there and crazy and just not care what anybody thinks. That's what it's all about.'' Teasing details about the new album, Jade Thirlwall added: ''It's a bit more pop, it's a little more pop I think. It's a bit cheekier with the lyrics, and it's a bit more dancey.'' And the girl group are looking forward to heading out on the road next year. Perrie shared: ''We love touring, it's our favourite thing to do ever, so we're buzzing, »
“March of the Penguins,” the beloved documentary that went on to make a splash at the Academy Awards, turned 10 years old on Wednesday.
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the nature doc followed the annual migration, mating and parenting patterns of a group of emperor penguins in Antarctica. It won best documentary feature at the 78th Academy Awards, beating “Murderball” and “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.”
“Looking out on these tuxedos tonight, it’s like seeing the movie again,” producer Yves Darondeau said in his Oscar speech.
Luc Jacquet, director of the film, added: “I’d like to dedicate this statuette to all the children in the world who saw that movie. In 2041, they will decide to renew or not the treaty that protects Antarctica. I will, maybe the “March of the Penguins” will inspire them.”
It wasn’t just the critics who adored the feathered subjects. “March of the Penguins »

He’s investigated Wikileaks, Enron, the war on terror and the Catholic church. Now, Oscar-winning film-maker Alex Gibney has tackled another multinational organisation accused of abuse in Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
Mark Kermode reviews Going Clear
Alex Gibney isn’t just one of America’s most prolific documentary makers, he’s also one of the best. He’s taken on whistleblowers (We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks), corporate corruption (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) and the war on terror (Taxi to the Dark Side), for which he won an Oscar for best documentary. Esquire has described him as “becoming the most important documentarian of our time”.
Exploring the murky terrain between truth and lies has become something of a speciality (he’d finished a film on Lance Armstrong’s comeback when revelations about his doping finally came out. Gibney went back and remade »

Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards turn into ''tramps'' when they're on a break from band duties. The two singers like to seriously dress down when they're not being pop stars because they spend so much time getting glammed up for their concerts, videos and photo shoots when they're working. Speaking about what they do with their time off in an interview with UK station BBC Radio 1, Jade said: ''Me and Perrie just become tramps, we literally just watch TV and just eat all day and don't wash for a couple days ... I don't watch my hair for the 10 days!'' Speaking about what she did with her break, Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: ''I just relax and just chill with my family it's nice.'' Although they've all enjoyed their time off, Little Mix - which also includes Jesy Nelson - are delighted to be back with their new single 'Black Magic'. »
In the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, a former member of the Church of Scientology says she simply wants "the truth to be known." Author Lawrence Wright, on whose book the documentary is based, says something similar: he never set out to write an exposé, but only wanted to understand what Scientology was all about. What he uncovered was truly bizarre, and damming. Writer and director Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) follows a mostly linear path through Scientology's origins to its current status, explaining its core principles alongside details of its systemic abuses. Gibney interviews eight former members, many of whom were high-ranking officials within the organization for decades, like top lieutenants Mark Rathbun and Mike Rinder. Wright himself also comments extensively on the history of Scientology, particularly regarding its larger-than-life founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

The CNN Films and Jigsaw production was well-received at SXSW, just as Gibney's Sundance entry "Going Clear: Scientology, The Prison of Belief" hits theaters in advance of HBO (March 29). Magnolia has acquired the theatrical, VOD and home entertainment rights to "Steve Jobs," while CNN Films has the television broadcast distribution rights. This is the seventh film directed by Gibney to be distributed by Magnolia. Described as "a renegade, but legit," "a study in contrasts," "a monk among priests," "maniacal" and "a rebel," Jobs is sketched in contradictory terms in in "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine" by Oscar-winner Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side," "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room," "We Steal Secrets," "The Armstrong Lie," "Finding Fela"). "This bracing film at first seduces you with the charms of the »

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
Written & Directed by Alex Gibney
Alex Gibney might be the most important documentarian working today. In Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, he immerses us in the bizarre world of Scientology. Exhaustively detailed, Gibney intertwines testimonials and archival footage to pull back the curtain on this shadowy religious organization. Darkly hilarious and endlessly fascinating, Going Clear is investigative filmmaking at its best.
Forget everything you think you know about Scientology; Alex Gibney wants to show you things are far worse than you ever imagined. He painstakingly chronicles the long history of abuse, coercion, and litigation used to control its members and rebuff its enemies. Despite all of the cloak and dagger surveillance, however, the pervading message that emerges from Going Clear is that Scientology is little more than a glorified tax shelter. Nothing glamorous, just a bunch of tax »
