Chelsea Handler Says She’s Working on a ‘Very Funny’ Netflix Series About White Privilege
Chelsea Handler and Netflix are getting back together to talk about race.

The streamer’s former talk show host revealed during an interview with BuzzFeed on Sunday that she’s working on a new book and a Netflix series about white privilege. “I intend for it to be very funny and I intend to hang myself out to dry,” she said of the show. “I’m a perfect example of the American dream, if you’re white and borderline pretty.”

TV Review: MTV’s Video Music Awards Were Low on Star Power

This year’s MTV Video Music Awards, held at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, felt eerily emptied out. It wasn’t, or wasn’t solely, that quite so many crowd shots of Radio City included a painful number of empty seats. Exactly who was missing was the problem. The VMAs, this year, were pointedly devoid of the star power that had defined the show for so long. An awards ceremony that thrives on the delicious collisions between megastars this year only offered carefully stage-managed appearances.

Beyoncé wasn’t there; neither were Jay-z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Rihanna, Taylor Swift,

The $27,000 Zombie Film That Refuses to Die at the Japanese Box Office

When One Cut of the Dead opened at an 84-seat Tokyo arthouse theater for a six-day run in November last year, the micro-budget zombie movie seemed destined to go the way of the 400 or so independent films in Japan every year which fail to get a full release. Made for just $27,000 (¥3 million) with a virtually unknown cast, the film is now showing on around 200 screens and growing, on course to easily top $10 million and has sold internationally from China to Brazil.

Twitter Roasts Madonna for Her Aretha Franklin VMAs Tribute
Madonna was set to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul at Monday’s VMAs, but the speech seemed to be all about the Queen of Pop — Madonna herself, that is.

MTV asked Madonna to honor Aretha Franklin, who died Thursday, during her intro for the video of the year winner announcement. Most of the tribute to Franklin, however, was spent explaining the early origins of Madonna’s career. The only mention of Franklin was that Madonna sang “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman” to — ultimately unsuccessfully — audition for a song. She credited that failure with launching her

Avicii won a posthumous award for best dance song alongside Rita Ora for their collaboration “Lonely Together” Monday at MTV’s VMAs.

The electronic artist died earlier in April in Oman at age 28.

Jason Isbell Jabs at Republicans’ ‘Unhinged’ Statement at Nashville Democrat Rally
“I was thinking today about how it feels to be an unhinged leftist,” quipped Jason Isbell two songs into a solo acoustic performance early Monday evening in Nashville, a short-notice but instantly sold-out rally for Democrat Tennessee senate candidate Phil Bredesen. Referencing shots fired earlier that day at left-leaning entertainers by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (Nrsc) — who, in an official statement, called out Isbell and co-headliner Ben Folds by name as members of the “unhinged left” — the outspoken country firebrand went on. “For the first time in my life I’m hinged.
