BBC’s Live World Cup Feed Cuts Out During Video Technology Discussion Of France’s Win Over Australia

The BBC are having a hard time with their live feed of the World Cup today with its post-match analysis of France’s narrow win over Australia cutting out a number of times.

The British public broadcaster will be glad that the technology failure happened after the match, so as not to remind viewers of the torrid time experienced by ITV during the 2010 World Cup where high-definition viewers missed England’s first goal against the United States thanks to a similar error.

The feed cut out three times during the coverage, which featured former Manchester United defender Phil Neville, ironically, discussing the controversial video technology Var, which is used to decide close calls during the game. Neville was in the BBC’s studio alongside former England footballer Alex Scott and ex-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. It was being hosted by Mark Chapman.

During the black-out, screens initially went to an error message,

Taylor Swift Fans Have No Chill When a Reporter Tells the Sweaty Singer She Needs to Shower

Why you gotta be so mean? That's the question Taylor Swift fans are asking one reporter who told the singer she needed a shower during an on-camera interview. After performing a six-song set at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea concert — where humidity was at 80 percent — radio DJ Greg James hinted the pop star needed to rinse off. "I think you need to have a shower now," he jokingly told Taylor, who took the brutally honest advice in stride. "I’m not offended that you said that. There’s a lot going on and none of it’s good here." While Taylor was able to laugh off the ~rude~ comment, many of her most loyal fans took to Twitter to drag the BBC reporter. #TaylorSwift has her first recorded interview after years of not doing them and she's told that she needs a shower...

Kate Winslet Had a Brilliant Reaction to Being Reminded About Her Music Career

Kate Winslet Had a Brilliant Reaction to Being Reminded About Her Music Career
Did you know that Hollywood's head girl, Kate Winslet, once had a top 10 single? Back in 2001, Kate voiced the character of Belle in the animated film Christmas Carol: The Movie, and for the role she was required to sing. The filmmakers took advantage of Kate's popularity at the time to release one of the songs, the ballad "What If?", as a single. And though it reached a very respectable number 6 in the UK charts (not to mention hitting number 1 in Ireland, Belgium, and Austria!) it seems like Kate doesn't want to be reminded of her brief foray into pop music. During an interview with BBC Radio 1's Greg James, Kate was forced to listen to a snippet of the song, which she said her husband also uses to torment her during the worst possible moments. Though Kate took it all in good humor, she did ask Greg to "turn it off!

PimpmasterFlex 3d asks:

Do you think Strictly is losing its mojo?

No. It's terribly sad that Bruce died and there will be a different feel to it this series because he passed away. But my god I think Claudia and Tess are the most brilliant duo. I think they're great together. This is the great thing about TV - there's room for moving dramas and move for simply feelgood entertainment where there's no agenda and it's just people wearing beautiful outfits and doing sometimes beautiful dance routines.

It hasn't been two weeks since Adele's "Hello" video dropped, and it's already inspired tons of funny videos and covers.

Why Taylor Swift Is the Latest Example of the Anti-Celebrity

Why Taylor Swift Is the Latest Example of the Anti-Celebrity
Writer Ed Eubanks explains why he thinks Taylor Swift is a perfect example of an anti-celeb in this post originally featured on Medium. Ms. Swift is something of an antithesis of celebrity - the anti-celebrity, if you will. This is not to say that Swift has not earned bona-fide celebrity status; her 2014 release, 1989, was the year's best-selling album, and she released a string of hits from it. Her concerts sell out, her fashion choices fly off the racks; she's even popular with fellow celebrities, apparently as the one others seek out for home décor and gift-giving advice. She is truly a pop-culture phenomenon. Anti-Celebrity What makes her the anti-celebrity, then? To begin with, consider how she got where she is: from her earliest beginnings, Swift has written the lyrics and melodies to most of her own music. Her songs, while hardly of a depth that endures (no one wonders whether

He faces the dilemma of selling out or staying with his loyal fanbase. Digital Spy chatted to Greg James about his TV acting debut and his comedy heroes.
