Iggy Azalea Cancels Pittsburgh Pride Concert After Tweets Resurface

Iggy Azalea’s career has gone from being a Twitter in-joke to just plain sad. I never wish for someone’s livelihood to get ruined, because we all have got to make that money. But, when you’re watching someone’s career tank in front of your eyes due to past Tweets, you begin to wonder if some celebs should start hiring a personal Tweeter. Someone who has PR skills and is able to think through what can and can’t be posted on a public forum when one’s career is on the rise. 

Exclusive Interview: Christine Chen (Director, "Blind Date Rules")

The second in the Blind Date Rules interview series is here! As you might recall, I’ve spoken to co-writer and star Brie Eley, and today, I’m sharing my interview with the director of the short film and founder of Austin, TX-based Moth to Flame Films, Christine Chen.

In this interview, Chen talked about working with the cast, what she’d like to change about rom-coms and the importance indie filmmaking has when it comes to changing Hollywood’s status quo. 

Monique Celebrates Zutara, Sparrowbeth, Mr. & Ms. Bamf and More Unofficial Couples on Entertainment Weekly!

If you’ve followed my site long enough (and if you look in the left sidebar), you’ll have noticed that I write for Entertainment Weekly as a part of the Community blog. I’ve recapped TyrantAlmost Human, black-ish, and I’ve interviewed some stars, like Michael Ealy, Yara Shahidi and Marcus Scribner. But apart from all that stuff, I also introduce EW readers to the world of niche fandom topics like shipping. 

MOC Monday: Chiwetel Ejiofor

Chiwetel Ejiofor needs to be honored for his vast acting skills, from Kinky Boots to 12 Years A Slave, as well as his social consciousness and good-looking-ness (I know that’s not a word). But I have to say that this MOC Monday was spawned from my own embarrassment, which you can follow on Twitter. To keep it short, I know the difference between David Oyelowo and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
