4 Things You’ll Learn About an Egyptian-Themed Sect Hiding Child Sex Abuse, on Monday’s PMI: Cults

On May 8, 2002, cult leader Dwight “Malachi” York, was arrested as he was walking into a grocery store in Eatonton, Georgia —  putting an end, authorities said, to his years of sexually abusing the children of his followers.

Soon afterward, local and federal law enforcement officers busted through the gates of “Tama-Re,” the Egyptian-themed compound of York’s United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors.

There they discovered dozens of female followers, 50 to 75 children, a stockpile of weapons and evidence of York’s sexual depravity, including a stuffed Pink Panther with a penis attached and photos taken at Florida’s Disney World where York would often take his child victims.

Authorities began investigating molestation claims against York two years earlier, when his estranged son, Jacob, and several of York’s victims came forward with accounts of slavery, starvation and sexual abuse dating back decades.

In 2004, York was convicted of five counts of racketeering and six counts of transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes. He was sentenced to 135 years in federal prison, where he remains at 73.

His group’s history, the crimes he inflicted on others and their stories of survival will be shared on Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates: Cults, airing on Investigation Discovery and exclusively previewed above.

Here are four things viewers will learn from the show.

• For more on the rise and fall of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands now.

1. York Came to Power in the ’70s Preaching Black Supremacy

York, an ex-con and Harlem street peddler, started his own sect in New York City in the ’70s, where he preached a black supremacist ideology mixed with traditional Islamic doctrine.

In 1972, he moved his growing congregation into various apartments he bought in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn and called his new commune the Ansaru Allah Community.

At his headquarters, his followers strictly adhered to his teachings and beliefs. Children attended his schools, women were mandated to work in the office and his male followers were tasked with recruiting new members.

“When you were around him, you were mesmerized by him,” survivor and former member Ruby Garnett says in Monday’s episode. “He was so charismatic. It was just amazing. I thought York was a Messiah.”

York was also a staunch believer in polygamy and had sex with many of his female followers. A select group of his favorites became his wives.

Cult survivor Niki LopezMicheal Anthony Clark

“He gave me a diamond ring,” says Garnett, who wed York at the age of 19. “I was so happy, I cried. I felt special because I am looking at being in his family as a privilege — an honor of service.”

However, when Garnett learned that York had sodomized an underage female follower, her feelings curdled.

“When he told me this story about violating her, in my mind I am saying, ‘Is he testing me?’ ” she recalls. “I was terrified.”

2. York Claimed He Was Royalty

Over time, York’s need to control every aspect of his followers’ lives grew more sinister and sexually depraved, according to former members as well as law enforcement sources and news accounts.

Niki Lopez — who joined the group at age 11, with her mom — was 13 years old when her sexual grooming process began.

At first, she says, York allowed her and a few of the other kids special access to his house to watch cartoons and eat junk food.

“He would give us little treats. … He gave us T-shirts,” Lopez says on PMI: Cults. “We were like, ‘We have short-sleeved T-shirts that no one else has.’ ”

Soon, however, Lopez says she was taught how to perform oral sex by one of York’s wives, who convinced her that sex with him was a Sudanese tradition to prepare them for marriage. (York claimed at one point to be heir to the throne of Sudan.)

One night, Lopez says, she was asked to stay behind at York’s house, where he held her down and raped her. She was 15.

• For more on the abuses of Dwight “Malachi” York and the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, watch Monday’s People Magazine Investigates: Cults at 9 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

3. York Moved to Georgia After Police Got Suspicious

As time passed, law enforcement in N.Y.C. started to probe York’s possible involvement in criminal enterprises and if his group was being funded by organized bank robberies and counterfeit checks.

As the scrutiny mounted, York moved his followers to Eatonton, Georgia, in 1993.

It was there that his teachings took a bizarre and unpredictable turn.

At first, York called himself Chief Black Thunderbird Eagle, the leader of a lost Native American tribe that fought against early European colonization. He then claimed to be an extraterrestrial from the planet Rizq. Eventually he morphed into the leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, proclaiming a philosophy that revolved around Egyptology and UFOs.

York declared that his armed compound — which featured two 40-foot plywood and stucco pyramids and a Sphinx — was a sovereign nation and refused to follow local, state and federal laws.

By 1998, whispers of York’s sexual depravity reached local enforcement when they learned about a rash of underage Nuwaubian girls giving birth in area hospitals.

However, the turning point in the case came in 2001, when York’s estranged son as well as other followers — including Niki Lopez — came forward with their tales of abuse.

4. More Than 40 Victims Cooperated with Police

After Niki began cooperating with law enforcement, more than 40 victims spoke out to give investigators additional details of sexual and physical abuse at the hands of York, which lead to the raid on his 476-acre compound.

York was arrested and charged with multiple state and federal crimes, including more than 100 counts of child molestation, six counts of transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes and five counts of racketeering.

He was convicted in 2004 and sentenced to 135 years in federal prison.

“It was kind of liberating,” says Lopez about testifying against York. “I felt like he can’t tell me anything. He can’t make me do anything. That was the first time of me getting my power back.”

The People Magazine Investigates: Cults episode on the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on Investigation Discovery.

Renzo Rosso Teases Diesel Campaign About Hate

LOVE IT OR HATE IT: Diesel’s Renzo Rosso showed up at the Maison Margiela show on Wednesday wearing a T-shirt that said “Haute Couture” — only with the “u” crossed out so it read “Hate Couture.”
The slogan was a teaser for Diesel’s fall campaign, the label said in a statement given exclusively to WWD. “Diesel’s Haute Couture will be a bold message toward haters worldwide — and an invitation for everyone to step up, face and own the negative messages we receive every day,” it said.
The campaign is a statement against today’s trolling culture, explained Rosso, whose OTB group owns Maison Margiela.
“Diesel is a brand that has always done something, provocative, crazy, with irony, and of course the irony today is to take away the ‘u’ and becoming ‘a’ and doing more to play with the ‘hate,’” he told WWD before the show.
“There’s so much hate on social, so many people want to say ‘bulls–t’ against the others, but today we take the opportunity of haute couture to rebalance with the hate,” he added.
The ads will be revealed on Sept. 1, Rosso said, promising: “This campaign will be a supermagic atomic bomb, something incredible.”
Diesel was so confident of the online reaction

Brad Pitt ‘Was Dreaming About Being a Dad’ Years Before He Met Angelina Jolie: Source

Brad Pitt is feeling better now that he gets to spend more time with his kids.

The actor, 54, is in London now — where ex Angelina Jolie is currently filming Maleficent 2  — to see his children for a second time in recent weeks after a judge presiding over the former couple’s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for him to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. The kids are currently living in London with Jolie as she films the Disney movie.

And being with the kids is already brightening his mood.

“Having kids was always very special to him. He wanted kids for years before he met Angie,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was dreaming about being a dad. And he has always been a great dad. Very involved and present. He talks about the kids nonstop now. He brought gifts back to England.”

The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt.

Maddox, 16, their oldest son, isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because, according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.

A spokesperson for Jolie called the court paper leak “misleading” and “not in the best interests of the children.”

The new ruling has made a significant impact in Pitt’s life as he was struggling with not knowing when he would have time with the kids.

“Brad has been in the best mood,” the source says. “Although he was away from the kids for a week, it seems just the fact that he now knows when he will see them, makes him very happy. He couldn’t wait to get back to England. Not following a proper custody schedule was very difficult for him. And very sad as well.”

Prince William Just Revealed What Kate ‘Really’ Thinks About Him Being at a Motorcycle Race Today

Looking for adventure!

Motorcycle enthusiast Prince William flew to the Isle of Man for one of the world’s top races on Wednesday.

William, 35, who still rides a high-powered Ducati (which he recently used to get him to a soccer match with pals!), went to watch the famous festival on the small island between Britain and Ireland. And while the prince couldn’t wait to take in the event, his wife Kate Middleton didn’t share the same excitement.

William confessed Kate may have been a little skeptical of the intentions of his visit. When Laurence Skelly, the Isle of Man government’s minister for enterprise, asked him about her views. William told him, “When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she said, ‘Really?’ ”

In the past, Kate has admitted to feeling “terrified” when her husband goes out on his motorcycle. And during a 2015 visit to Scotland, she said: “I’m going to keep George off of it!”

The annual Tourist Trophy (or TT race) is a major fixture in the motorcycling circuit. It began in 1907 and is one of the oldest motorsport events in the world.

As well as seeing a number of races, the prince met officials and support staff, and volunteers involved in the event.

William caught some of the final stages of the TT Supersport Race 2 before heading to a reception in the Government House Tent, where he met race staff and volunteers, civic dignitaries and representatives of local businesses.

He also spent time with the Joey Dunlop Foundation charity, which provides specialist accommodation for visitors to the Isle of Man with a disability.

In addition to his love of motorcycling, William would have flown near the race’s location while patrolling the Irish Sea on missions with the RAF Search and Rescue crews based at Anglesey. He once picked up a stricken sailor from the sea near the island.

The prince recently had the chance to test drive a bike during a visit to the headquarters of Triumph Motorcycles. There, he slipped a reflective jacket on over his blazer and sweater for a quick ride on the Triumph Tiger 1200. He also got to pose on a vintage model.

GMA’s Ginger Zee and Frozen’s Patti Murin Have a No-Judgement Chat About Their Mental Health Struggles

Two of Hollywood’s outspoken and passionate advocates about mental health are coming together to talk about their experiences and how they work to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

PEOPLE has the exclusive premiere of a candid conversation between Good Morning America’s meteorologist Ginger Zee and Broadway’s Frozen star Patti Murin — staged in support of Philosophy’s hope & grace initiative, which donates a portion of all of the beauty brand’s proceeds go to women’s mental health organizations.

Back in December, Zee, 37, opened up about her battle with depression in her book Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One — revealing that she checked herself into a mental health institution just 10 days before starting her job at ABC News.

Murin, 37, has also long been transparent about her depression and anxiety, making headlines back in April when she revealed she had to call out of a Frozen performance due to a “massive anxiety attack.”

Both stars have been able to connect with millions of fans who are tackling similar mental health hurdles.

“Social media, it’s the best way to get the word out,” Murin says. “I feel like some sort of barrier was broken. I don’t know exactly when or how, but all of the big stars that people see on their favorite TV shows or movies are coming out and talking about it — like Kristen Bell and Mark Ruffalo. Look at what these people are doing, but also know that they feel like you.”

“That’s the point! It’s that it doesn’t discriminate,” adds Zee. “It’s not just for us that are on a more public scene. It’s the high schooler or the middle schooler …  That’s part of our job as humans: to sit down and to have a conversation and learn about somebody’s story. That’s going to make everybody’s mental health better.”

Zee says one of her struggles is feeling like she is “multiple people at one time.”

“That is a big hallmark of many people’s mental health challenges. For me, there was Ginger Zee, who was on television, and there was Ginger Zuidgeest, which is my really long Dutch name. And those people were very different people. It almost makes it easier because you’re able to for longer, hide from it.”

“I have the opportunity to step into somebody else’s shoes and I think that hindered some of my progress in my early acting years, before I went on medication and did research and realized this was a bigger thing I could not do on my own and handle myself,” Murin admits.

RELATED VIDEO: Ginger Zee on Battling Depression: ‘I Don’t Think Anybody’s Forever Cured’

And while both Zee and Murin have made major strides in their mental health, each admits to still be learning every day — and even from each other.

“The number of people that sent me your story because they wanted me to not feel alone was actually really special,” Zee tells Murin.

“It’s really nice to sit down and talk to somebody that, whatever you say, it’s going to be understood or at least not judged,” says Murin of Zee.

House of Horrors Parents: What We Know About David and Louise Turpin, Accused in Abuse of 13 Children

Many people who crossed paths with David and Louise Turpin believed the couple was strange. But nobody could have predicted they were capable of the evil acts they are accused of carrying out against their 13 children.

“Never in a million years did I think were being chained to beds,” a neighbor told PEOPLE within days of the Turpins’ Jan. 15 arrests as the case quickly gained infamy. “I thought maybe they weren’t being properly taken care of but I never had anything to go off of; it was just a mom’s stomach feeling that something wasn’t right there.”

David, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, were arrested after their 17-year-old daughter climbed out a window of their Perris, California, home and used a disconnected cell phone to call 911, alleging that she and her 12 siblings were being abused and held captive by their parents.

Each parent is being held in lieu of a $ 12 million bond and face numerous criminal charges in the alleged abuse of their kids, who ranged in age from 2 to 29 at the time of the parents’ arrest. The charges include torture, false imprisonment and abuse. Only the youngest child appears to have been somewhat spared from the alleged abuse, according to prosecutors.

Authorities entered their house to find an allegedly horrendous scene of malnutrition and squalor, with some of the children shackled to their beds. Prosecutors allege the Turpins denied their children food — while eating healthy amounts themselves — and only allowed them to take one shower a year. Most of the siblings were unfamiliar with how to use a toothbrush.

Both parents are scheduled to return to court for a hearing on May 4, when the parties could possibly agree on a date for the preliminary hearing for the impending trial.

As the case proceeds through the judicial system, here are four things to know about the couple.

The Turpins

1. When They Got Married, David Was 23 and Louise Was 16

The Turpins were married in Pearisburg, Virginia, on Feb. 11, 1985, when he was 23 and she was just 16. David and Louise reportedly grew up in nearby Princeton, West Virginia, just over the state line.

Louise’s half-brother Billy Lambert spoke with PEOPLE and said his sister met David at church. The two “ran away” to get married, Lambert explained, but they returned home to West Virginia after police caught up with them. At that point, Louise’s disapproving father reluctantly signed off on the union.

They would eventually move to Texas, where David worked as an engineer and Louise would have their first child at the age of 20. After 17 years in Texas, they moved to California, and were planning another move at the time of their arrests.

2. They Distanced Themselves From Relatives, and Renewed Vows to Each Other 3 Times

During heir marriage, the Turpins renewed their vows at least three times, according to the Las Vegas Elvis impersonator who presided over each ceremony.

As the years passed, the Turpins slowly started to distance themselves from relatives — in some cases, becoming estranged. One estranged relative, Louise’s sister, Teresa Robinette, described some of the couple’s rebellious behavior during an interview with Megyn Kelly in January.

Robinette said the Turpins felt they missed out on some of the fun their friends without kids had, so they started acting differently after having several children.

David and Louise Turpin

As Louise was approaching 40, the couple stopped attending church and “said they were experimenting with different religions.” They also allegedly started going out to bars when, before, they had never even taken a sip of alcohol.

“The very weird thing to me, that I would never do, is she told me her and David met a man online from Huntsville, Alabama, and that they were on their way to meet him,” Robinette said. “She was going to sleep with him, and David was okay with it. I told her I thought it was a mistake. But I know that she met this man at a motel and slept with him in Alabama.”

A year later, Robinette said the couple returned to the hotel, spending the night in the same room on the same bed.

3. Louise Wanted Another Child

Lambert also told PEOPLE that Louise was interested in having another child with David, noting his half-sister had “always wanted a big family.”

According to Lambert, Louise admired reality TV mom Kate Gosellin, of the Kate Plus 8 show, who was the mother of sextuplets and twin daughters.

“She had mentioned the Kate Plus 8 show, that it was a cool reality show,” Lambert recalled. “I think deep down that is what she wanted. The last conversation we had on the phone she had mentioned David is looking into a school bus because their 15 seat van is filled up.”

The Turpins have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. They face up to life in prison if convicted on all charges.

The Turpins

4. Relatives Allege Louise Is In Denial Over Severity of Allegations

Elizabeth Flores, Louise’s sister, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show and described a prison visit with both parents, and said her sister appeared “almost at peace” and “in a daze,” as if “something’s not clicking right in the head … It’s all ‘woe is me.’”

Flores said she was “shocked” during the visit that Louise did not ask how her children were, and said it was almost as if Louise feels “everything’s going to be alright.” She said she thought her sister was “living a fantasy and she wants to keep it all hidden. She’s playing a game.”

David acted in a strikingly different manner than his wife. He sobbed during the encounter, Flores said.

“When I went in there, I immediately saw that he knew he had done wrong, he was remorseful, he cried the whole entire time. It wasn’t fake.”

David was like “a little boy that was ready to confess everything he had done,” Flores said.

“He kept saying, ‘I wish I could tell you about what we’ve done, what happened.’ … He had been advised not to,” she alleged.

Katie Lowes Is Staying in Shondaland! Scandal Star Partners for New Podcast All About Motherhood

Her Scandal character, Quinn Perkins, will soon be exiting Shondaland in the upcoming series finale, but Katie Lowes is remaining as she launches a new podcast with Shonda Rhimes‘ company.

“That’s right! I get to stay in Shondaland for Katie’s Crib which is the best!” the actress, 36, tells PEOPLE about her latest post-Scandal project and the first-ever Shondaland-produced podcast that will cover topics related to all things motherhood and parenting.

“This whole thing of motherhood is insane. It’s a rollercoaster, which I love because the Shondaland logo is a rollercoaster. That’s basically how I feel every day,” she jokes. (Fun fact: Scandal and Shondaland’s executive producer Betsy Beers had a hand in naming the podcast.)

“Shondaland approached me about it actually. They came to me and thought, ‘I feel like you’re going through this huge thing called motherhood and there are probably a lot of people that would benefit going through this stuff with you.’ It’s been amazing,” Lowes says about the weekly podcast that will feature fellow moms Kristen Bell, Casey Wilson, Jennifer Finnigan, Angelique Cabral and June Diane Raphael.

Lowes and husband Adam Shapiro welcomed their first child, son Albee, in October 2017.

Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs? Click here to get those and more in the PEOPLE Babies newsletter.

Katie Lowes

“Each episode is about different topics that I’ve been going through in motherhood. Doulas, PPD, breastfeeding, sleep training, the village it takes to raise a baby, C-sections, intimacy post-baby, etc. There are endless topics that I really feel like need to be discussed,” Lowes explains.

“When I was pregnant, I was a big fan of pregnancy podcasts and found inspiration there for Katie’s Crib. What’s so fun about it is that a Shondaland producer actually comes to my house and we shoot it in my crib, hence the title,” she shares. “We shoot it in Albee’s playroom and he’s usually napping in the room next door. So on my podcast, it’s real: You’re gonna hear dogs barking, the lawn being mowed, my baby crying, you’re gonna hear the whole kid and kaboodle of how my life runs.”

Adding, “My son doesn’t care about a schedule so even though I’m pretty sure he’s going to be napping during that time, it’s not a definite. It makes it very interesting and it makes it very real.”

RELATED: Need Baby Clothes? It’s Handled: Scandal Cast Reveals They Share Their Kids’ Hand-Me-Downs

In addition to her celebrity pals, Lowes also invites experts in various fields to provide professional advice and consultation.

“The topics get pretty raw and vulnerable, not only from my own experiences but I’m lucky that I’m living in L.A. and befriended a lot of experts in different fields. Each episode has a topic and I usually have a few girlfriends on that talk about their experiences. We have an expert that can help us with topics like lactation or speaking with therapists or an OB,” she says.

RELATED: Why Scandal Star Katie Lowes Bought a House She Hated: ‘The Night Before We Moved In I Was Crying’

Shapiro adds that his wife’s podcast is very similar to the daily conversations she has with her inner circle.

“Katie has such a close-knit group of moms that she talks to all the time. And I always hear the Katie side of that conversation so I always thought she should do a podcast because she basically does one every day on the phone with her girlfriends,” says the father of one, who also made cameos on Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy.

“It’s an incredible group of friends who happen to have babies at the same time. It’s amazing when I talk to moms that don’t have a circle like that, how much information they don’t have to receive because they’re not constantly in contact with other moms and other ideas. So that kind of world that Katie has created for herself she gets to share it through this podcast and everybody gets to be her mom friend,” he says.

RELATED: Go Inside Scandal‘s Katie Lowes’ ‘Sustainable’ Nautical-Themed Nursery for Her Son

Overall, Lowes seeks to inspire and empower mothers and parents with Katie’s Crib.

“I hope that people who listen really connect with a day in my life looking similar to a day in their life. We are not a podcast that’s a how-to guide,” she emphasizes. “We’re not telling people exactly what to do but I’m hoping that each episode provides moms and partners with any sort of insight or thing that could help them.”

Katie’s Crib is available on iTunes.

John Legend Opens Up About Playing Jesus: He ‘Was a Bit of a Revolutionary’

He sang about “Ordinary People,” but John Legend is taking on an extraordinary role.

The Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner, 39, will play the title role in NBC’s upcoming Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert — and PEOPLE caught up with Legend before he takes the stage on Easter Sunday to talk growing up in church and how he got into character for the beloved rock opera.

“ imagined what a real human being would think going through betrayal and the challenge of joining together with your friends to fight against oppression. My job is to embody that,” Legend, 39, tells PEOPLE of playing the Son of God alongside Sara Bareilles (Mary Magdalene) and Alice Cooper (King Herod).

Adds the performer: “I think Jesus in real life was a bit of a revolutionary — he was somebody who was disrupting the status quo and provided an example for how we could all love each other, how we think about people who have been looked down upon and what it means to sacrifice oneself for something that you believe in.”

Legend grew up in a “very Christian” home in Springfield, Ohio, where his mother was a choir director, his grandmother a church organist and his grandfather a pastor.

“The message I took from growing up in church was the idea of loving your neighbor, giving to others and treating people as you would want to be treated,” says Legend. “You can learn those things in any religion or without religion, but that’s where I did.”

And the star says his childhood in the church changed his life.

“I was in choir rehearsals every week as a kid, and I took over the choir when I was older,” he says. “That was the foundation of my career; I wouldn’t be where I am without playing gospel music in church.”

Madonna to Direct Ballet Biopic ‘Taking Flight’ About Michaela DePrince

Madonna will get in the director’s chair again with the forthcoming film “Taking Flight,” a drama based on the life of Sierra Leone-born ballerina Michaela DePrince.
MGM began developing the film in 2015 after acquiring the rights to Michaela and her mother Elaine DePrince’s memoir “Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina.” The book follows Michaela’s life from an orphan in war-torn Sierra Leone to her adoption in the U.S and her journey to becoming a professional dancer.
“Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity,” Madonna said in a statement first published in Variety. “We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. I am honored to bring her story to life.”
The screenplay was written by Camilla Blackett and producers include Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton along with Ben Pugh and Madonna’s longtime manager Guy Oseary.
Many know DePrince from the 2012 ballet documentary “First Position.” She was adopted at age four and taken to the United States by Elaine and Charles DePrince. She landed her first professional job at age 17 in

Tom Brady Opens Up About Super Bowl Loss and Balancing Football and Family

Along with giving a deeper look at his family, Tom Brady is looking to answer one question with his new Facebook Watch docu-series: “What does it really take for a 40-year-old to play in the NFL?”

In a candid interview with ABC’s Michael Strahan, the New England Patriots quarterback opened up about the six-episode series, Tom vs Time, and continuing to play football at 40 years old.

“There’s a real love for the sport, a love for the game, and a love for the competition … it’s really something I really relish,” Brady said. “As long as I feel good, as long as I continue to work hard and make the commitment — it requires a lot of discipline, that’s one thing God had given me when I was young.”

He also opened up about his team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in this year’s Super Bowl.

“I think you realize the sun comes up the next morning, your life goes on but, you know, those games live with you for the rest of your life,” Brady said. “That’s part of being an athlete. That’s part of being in a very competitive sport.”

“I’m proud of our efforts throughout the year,” he continued. “We overcame a lot of adversity, like you always do in order to get to that game. But we just came up a little bit short.”

In the docu-series, fans also get an intimate look at the athlete’s balancing act between football and family.

“I have a wife that is very, aspires to be a lot of things and she travels a lot. My oldest son lives here in New York,” he said. “Three kids and you’re just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them and you want to be there for the hockey games and the soccer games, but you also realize the level of commitment it takes to give as much as you can to the team that needs you.”

“I think most professionals probably feel the same way,” he added. “Sometimes it gets out of balance, and you’ve got to figure out how to bring it back to a point where it feels great for everybody involved.”

Brady has five championships under his belt, making him the first quarterback in NFL history to boast the accomplishment. He told Strahan that he’s managed to last so long in the sport with hard work and determination.

“When your priorities are in order then you can make decisions based on what your priorities are,” he said. “I believe you can extend your career as a lot of athletes are trying to do now.”

However, Brady admitted he hasn’t always made the best choices in his athletic career.

“I would say I was a very late bloomer through high school and early into college … my routine and the things that I did weren’t very good. They weren’t very conducive to my goals,” Brady told Strahan.

“It got to a point early in my career where I didn’t envision myself being able to continue to play because my arm hurt so bad all the time.”

The athlete said he made several changes to his routine, tweaks that have landed him a lengthy career. And the pro footballer said he’s happy to let fans into his world.

“I felt like I really wanted to show people all the things I had learned over the years; all the things that were really important to me,” he said. “And show some of the fans — and a lot of the patriots fans — really what it takes to continue to try to achieve at a really high level.”

There’s Nothing Superficial About Missoni’s New Surface Conversion Exhibit

Angela Missoni’s curiosity and roving eye keeps Surface Conversion sharp and relevant. The project, which features collaborations between Missoni and various artists who develop site-specific works for the flagship at 1009 Madison Avenue in Manhattan, was created for sharing art with customers and the public.
Missoni asks artists to develop site-specific pieces, with the possibility of integrating artworks into every single corner of the store. She watches as the art transforms the scale of the boutique, hoping it will open a dialogue about the relationship between culture, fashion and art.
“Dreams of Being,” an installation by American textile artist Rachel Hayes, opened Wednesday as the latest installment of Surface Conversion, curated in collaboration with a Palazzo Gallery. The exhibition features Hayes’ large scale, hand-sewn patchwork tapestries that experiment with themes of color, shadow and light.
Hayes’ works are both powerful and fragile — bright, optimistic colors on delicate fabrics. Hayes is inspired by the traditions of quilt making, sculpture, painting and stained glass. She uses materials based on these crafts to design her abstract fabric compositions.
Missoni was just looking around “going from one thing to another. I was looking for patchwork and then I bumped into Rachel on social media. I was really amazed by

Asos Is Serious About Growing in the U.S.

British online retailer Asos on Monday held its inaugural New York presentation for the brand’s fall 2018 men’s wear collection with an eye toward growing its U.S. business, which head of men’s Nick Eley said is in second place, behind the U.K.
The e-tailer has ratcheted up its presence during New York Fashion Week: Men’s since July, when it held a party.
Primarily aimed at young adults — Eley said the average age is 20 — Asos sells more than 850 brands and its own range of clothing and accessories. The brand is making a push, offering plus sizes for men, which Eley called a “huge opportunity.”
In addition, Eley said the men’s and women’s sides of the business have started collaborating for the first time on trends, fabrics and more, the results of which will be fully realized with the spring 2019 collection.

The brand features an abundance of over-the-top fashion and glam items. After all, Asos was originally called As Seen on Screen when it launched in 1999, before its name was shortened to an acronym. “The Asos guy is going out more and is more confident with what he’s wearing,” said Eley.
The presentation was held at 393 NYC, a long, narrow gallerylike space

Everything We Know About Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl Performance — So Far

While football fans everywhere are eager to find out if the Philadelphia Eagles or the New England Patriots will reign supreme at the Super Bowl, pop culture aficionados have more pressing matters to focus their attention on, like Justin Timberlake‘s highly anticipated halftime performance.

As is the case each year, the NFL is keeping mum on details related to its entertainment acts, but that doesn’t have fans (or Timberlake) feeling any less hyped for what’s to come.

Here’s what we know so far about the “Filthy” crooner’s performance:

1. This will be the third time he’s hitting the Super Bowl stage.

This will be the third time Timberlake has performed at the famous championship game. In addition to the 2004 set, he and ‘NSYNC joined a star-studded lineup (including Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige and Nelly) to sing their classic hits “Bye Bye Bye” and “It’s Gonna Be Me.”

2. It won’t be controversial like his and Janet Jackson‘s 2004 Super Bowl debacle.

Fourteen years ago, the singer took the stage with Jackson to perform his hit “Rock Your Body.” Memorably, at the end of the sexy track’s closing lyrics — “I bet I’ll have you naked by the end of this song” — Timberlake went to remove Jackson’s corset and accidentally tore off her bra too, exposing her bare breast.

Controversy ensued, Timberlake and Jackson issued apologies, and the Federal Communications Commission charged CBS, the network that broadcast the game that year, with a $ 550,000 indecency fine for the incident, dubbed “Nipplegate.”

“To be honest, it wasn’t too much of a conversation,” he told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe of addressing the controversial moment before hitting the stage once more on Super Bowl Sunday. “It’s just one of those things where you go, ‘Yeah what do you want me to say? We’re not going to do that again.’”

3. ‘NSYNC will most likely not reunite on Super Bowl Sunday.

Sad news for ‘NYSYNC fans hoping for a Super Bowl reunion: Joey Fatone appeared to shut down rumors of a regrouping when TMZ caught up with the former band mate. (JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Lance Bass round out the famous fivesome.)

“I’m here right now — if I was doing something, I’d be at rehearsals right now, so obviously there’s your proof: nothing,” Fatone told TMZ of the potential ‘NSYNC reunion. “There’s nothing wrong with that! He’s doing his thing!”

RELATED VIDEO: Joey Fatone Reveals Whether *NSYNC Will Reunite During Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl Halftime Show

4. … and the same thing can be said about a surprise Janet Jackson appearance.

If you take Fatone’s word on it, that is. “He’s not that kind of person,” Fatone said. “He’s not controversial like that. He is in a sense, but not in a sense to do it deliberately.”

5. He’s stretching and rehearsing like no other.

We can hardly wait for what’s to come.

6. He won’t have a special guest joining him on the stage.

“Well … no,” he admitted during the Super Bowl LII press conference. “To be honest, I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests. There’s a whole list. I think Vegas has a lot of odds on it, from ‘NSYNC to Jay to Chris Stapleton to Janet.” Instead, he says he wants to shine the spotlight on his trusty longtime band, the Tennessee Kids. “I feel like they’re my special guests and I’m excited to rock the stage.”

7. He will be playing ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ during the halftime show.

Timberlake — who revealed he’s “doing a few things with this halftime show they’ve never quite done before” — confirmed that he’ll play his Oscar-nominated smash “Can’t Stop the Feeling” but warned, “That’s all I am giving away! I’m not giving away anything else, so don’t even try it.”

8. He’ll be wearing custom Stella McCartney.

Talk about a dapper guy! Timberlake will hit the Super Bowl halftime show stage in custom Stella McCartney. The designer and singer drew inspiration from his album, Man of the Woods, for the final look.

Super Bowl LII will be played Sunday, Feb. 4 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will air live on NBC.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Finds Hidden Message About Seinfeld in Old Frame from 1993: ‘Fun, Right?’

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but even Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ photo frames have a few things to say.

The Veep star, 57, was going through some of her late father’s belongings when she came across a little surprise from some Seinfeld fans.

“Today I’ve been going thru family photos from my dear dad RIP, organizing them, taking them out of frames etc,” she captioned a  Twitter photo of her unexpected discovery on Monday. “Look what I found in the back of a frame-a message from the framers in Mt Kisco, NY from 1993. Fun, right?”

They had scrawled the note, ” ‘Elaine’ Rules!!! We Julia.” Louis-Dreyfus, of course, starred as Elaine Benes on the hit NBC sitcom.

The actress’ father, billionaire business mogul William Louis-Dreyfus, passed away in September 2016, just two days before the Emmy Awards where his daughter took home her fifth consecutive Emmy.

“Lastly, I’d like to dedicate this to my father, William Louis-Dreyfus, who passed away on Friday,” she said in her acceptance speech at the time. “I’m so glad that he liked Veep because his opinion was the one that really mattered.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Earlier this month, Louis-Dreyfus watched the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards from home as she continues her battle with breast cancer. The actress was honored and celebrated for her work on Veep with the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series.

Minutes later, she addressed her win in a tweet.

“I wish I could have been @SAGawards tonight but have to admit it’s pretty fun to watch in my pj’s,” she joked on Twitter.

“So honored to win. So proud to be a union member,” the star continued. “So happy for my @VeepHBO bozos for winning ensemble award. Miss being at the table with you all. How was the chicken?”

The honor marked Louis-Dreyfus’ eighth SAG award, out of a total of 21 nominations. She previously won the honor last year for Veep, and again in 2012. Her other wins were for her role on Seinfeld — both as solo star and as a member of the show’s ensemble.

Timothy Simons, who costars as Jonah Ryan on Veep, revealed that although the cast hadn’t been able to call Louis-Dreyfus right after her win — “the cell service in this thing is actually pretty terrible” at the SAGs — the actress has been “incredibly strong” throughout her cancer battle.

“She’s generally been in good spirits when we’ve seen her,” he said. “She has a good sense of humor, which I think it does wonders when you’re going through something like this. She’s incredibly strong. She’s uniquely able to combat something like this. She’s incredible.”
