Hugh Jackman Throws Shade at Ryan Reynolds After Actor Crashes His Birthday Message Recording

We all have that one annoying friend — and for Hugh Jackman, that friend is Ryan Reynolds.

Jackman attempted to record a birthday message for a fan on Twitter Friday when he was interrupted by Reynold’s Deadpool.

As the Wolverine actor started to record his well-wishes, Reynolds began singing in the background.

“When you’re trying to record a heartfelt birthday message …. but are interrupted by the least greatest showman,” he wrote on Twitter.

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

Distracted by the song, Jackman panned the camera over to show Reynolds laying on a hotel bed in his full Deadpool costume singing “Tomorrow.”

“Don’t give him too much attention,” Jackman said in the clip.

But it didn’t stop there. Reynolds then went on to sing “Who Let the Dogs Out” with Jackman unable to resist chiming in.

“Who let them out? No one knows,” said Reynolds. “No one ever solved that mystery.”

Both Reynolds and Jackman are together promoting their films at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The two even participated in a comical musical number together to open Fox’s presentation at the theater owner conference..

This isn’t the first time the two have sparred on social media. The longtime friends have enjoyed taking jabs at each on Twitter.

In 2015, while filming Deadpool, Reynolds posted a video on Instagram impersonating the Australian actor and asked fans to vote for him for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive (both men had already been given the honor — Jackman in 2008 and Reynolds in 2010).

“G’day mate, Hugh Jackman here,” Reynolds says in a thick Australian accent. “Just reminding you to get your votes in for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. Cover’s coming up.”

In March 2017, Reynolds joked that most of Jackman’s fans were actually “protestors.”

Cirque du Soleil Aerialist Who Died During Show Shared Heartfelt Message Before Fatal Performance

Just before Cirque du Soleil aerialist Yann Arnaud took to the stage in what would be his final performance this weekend, the married father shared a heartfelt Instagram post about the difficult stunt that would lead to his death.

“After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight,” he wrote alongside a black and white shot of himself practicing the stunt. “It’s time to go for it.”

During the Saturday performance in Tampa, Florida, Arnaud lost his grip on an aerial ring and plunged some 20 feet to the stage just before 10 p.m., according to the Tampa Bay Times. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died early Sunday. In a statement, Cirque du Soleil officials called the incident a “tragic accident,” and noted that Arnaud had been with the organization for more than 15 years.

Arnaud performed the straps act along with fellow aerialist Pawel Walczewski. Walczewski, too, posted about the difficult number on Instagram, writing, “After a long road ready to perform tonight a straps act with @yannarnophoto.”

Arnaud leaves behind a wife and two young daughters. Along with photos of his performances, Arnaud’s social media accounts are filled with shots of his wife Inna Gorelova, their 2-year-old Lilia and Arnaud’s older daughter. In one shot, Arnaud is shown tossing Lilia into the air; in the post he called her is “little acrobat.”

A September Instagram video shared by Gorelova showed Lilia playing with a plush duck. Arnaud couldn’t help but gush about his daughter in the comment section, writing, “My little princess growing so fast😘💖.”

In the wake of his death, Arnaud’s friends and fellow performers have mourned his passing in a series of social media messages. In a Facebook post on Sunday, Erica Madrid recalled working with Arnaud, calling him a “strong role model for many.”

“My heart aches for you, those who were around you and close to you, and most of all for your loving, beautiful family, so I feel the need to say something,” Madrid wrote.

“You were such a respectable, hard-working, talented individual. I am honored to have worked with you from when we were first beginning training to figuring out the name of the show and eventually to its premiere.”

Performer Simon Ata shared a pair of Facebook photos that featured Arnaud, describing him as “An amazing friend, performer, photographer and human being.”

On Monday, another friend wrote in another post that Gorelova and Lilia were Arnaud’s “world.”

“The world has lost an amazing artist, father, and husband,” the user, Joanna Borres, wrote. “In such shock over this devastating news. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to work you.”

Michael B. Jordan Gushes Over Lupita Nyong’o in Flirty Happy Birthday Message

Lupita Nyong’o is ringing in her birthday with the help of her Black Panther costars.

The actress celebrated her 35th birthday on Thursday and got some special love from costar Michael B. Jordan. The actor posted a flirty shot of the two on his Instagram to celebrate the special day.

“She looks elegant right?! Graceful! Timeless! No this is the look of a killer getting ready to give me push ups in knee deep popcorn !!!” he wrote. “I’ve had the pleasure of knowing what a beautiful soul you have & witness you shine your light on the world through your work your passion your joy & in everything you do. Those of us who are lucky enough to know you personally are definitely changed for the better! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!”

In the shot, Jordan and Nyong’o are seen smiling at each other as they walk through a crowd.

The sweet message further fuels rumors the two are romantically involved.

The actor first sparked speculation of a possible relationship when exchanging frisky tweets with the actress last month while participating in a celebrity prank show, MTV’s Safeword.

Along with Jordan, Nyong’o’s fellow Black Panther costar Danai Gurira wished the actress a happy birthday at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards luncheon.

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

After Nyong’o presented her costar and friend with an award, Gurira flipped the attention back on her, singing happy birthday on stage.

“I had to do that, I’m sorry,” Gurira said. “ just got off a plane late last night, made it here at midnight on her own birthday. That’s sisterhood right there.”

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.”

Read Demi Lovato’s Inspiring Message To Herself On 5-Year Anniversary Of Sobriety

Demi Lovato is five years sober, and that’s something to celebrate. 

The “Confident” singer has been open about her deeply personal struggles with drugs and alcohol. On Wednesday, she commemorated the fifth anniversary of her sobriety with a heartfelt message to fans and, most importantly, herself. 

“So grateful. It’s been quite the journey. So many ups and downs. So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession,” she captioned a screenshot documenting her achievement. “I’m so proud of myself but I couldn’t have done it without my higher power (God), my family, friends, and everyone else who supported me. Feeling humbled and joyful today. Thank you guys for sticking by my side and believing in me.”

At the height of her fame as a Disney Channel star, in 2010, the pop star checked into rehab for three months following a public exit from the Jonas Brothers Live in Concert tour. At one of her lowest points, Lovato heavily depended on cocaine to get her through the day, forcing her to take the drug everywhere she went, including airplanes. 

“Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs,” she told Access Hollywood in 2013. “I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it.”

Lovato was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder, putting her on a path to become one of the most outspoken advocates for mental health in the entertainment industry. She recently served as the executive producer of “Beyond Silence,” a film documenting the struggles of three individuals living with mental health conditions. 

“I wish that more people can understand from a point where it’s not a choice to have an addiction,” she said on her three-year sobriety anniversary. “And with bipolar disorder, it’s a chemical imbalance and it’s something that you have to figure out your own treatment with your own team. In order to do that, it takes time … Finally I’m in a great place where I can say recovery is possible.”

Queen Elizabeth Delivers Message of Peace and Launches Baton Relay on Commonwealth Day

On Monday, Queen Elizabeth delivered a special message of peace and unity for Commonwealth Day, an annual celebration which honors the 52 countries that comprise the Commonwealth of Nations.

The 90-year-old monarch called upon the 2.5 billion citizens of the Commonwealth to continue to work together and “build peace by defending the dignity of every individual and community.”

She also launched the Queen’s Baton Relay, which kicks off Monday in London and will continue on a 388-day journey around the Commonwealth before it arrives at the opening ceremony of the Gold Coast Games next year on April 4, 2018.

The baton will also make an appearance at a service at Westminster Abbey, which will be attended by the Queen and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and Princes Harry, Andrew and Edward.

“Over the next 12 months, the baton will visit people living in the nations and territories of our Commonwealth family in every continent and ocean,” the Queen’s message continued.

“Carried on its way by thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds, by the time it reaches its final destination, the Queen’s Baton will have brought together, through its route and symbolism, almost 2.5 billion people who share the special connection of being Commonwealth citizens.

“Contained within the Baton will be a written message that will be opened and read at the Commonwealth Games in Australia next year. However, there is an even more powerful message to be seen and experienced as the Baton passes from hand to hand, from seashore to mountaintop, through cities, towns and villages. It is the message of a peace-building Commonwealth.”

Christie Brinkley Lights Up Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue Party in Red Jumpsuit, Thanks Her Daughters for Sharing a ‘Body Positive Message’

There’s a reason we’re all still so obsessed with a particular generation of  iconic ‘80s/’90s supermodels. While they were obviously the definition of high-fashion glamour during their runway heyday, as the years have gone on, they’ve each demonstrated that while they were undeniably gorgeous then, they truly only get better with age. In case Naomi Campbell’s recent reminder that she can still wear lingerie better than any twenty-something, to say nothing of Kate Moss’ evergreen career and popularity, wasn’t proof enough, Christie Brinkley made her return to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition this year, this time with her two daughters in tow to show that age is really only a state of mind. A fact she confirmed yet again when she attended the magazine’s launch event in a form-fitting red jumpsuit on Thursday night.

After seeing the pictures in this year’s SI Swim issue featuring Brinkley reprising her role as a bikini model for the publication 36 years after scoring its coveted cover for the first time 1979, we really shouldn’t have been all that surprised that the model and her enviable physique have barely changed at all. But somehow the model’s exemption from the effects of time never fails to come as a surprise, particularly when she’s flanked by her 18 and 31-year-old daughters and fellow Sports Illustrated stars, and it becomes crystal clear just how powerful Christie’s girl-next-door genes really are.

RELATED PHOTOS: Christie Brinkley’s Daughters on Body-Shaming and Insecurity Before SIShoot: ‘I Grew Up Not Loving How I Looked’

To celebrate her return to the magazine that helped cement her decade-spanning career, Brinkley wore an appropriately attention-grabbing number, a fitted, fire engine red jumpsuit with a crewneck, bishop sleeve, and bootcut leg. She accessorized the look with a pair of silver and PVC cap-toe pumps, a small red box clutch, and a perfectly coordinated shade of red lipstick, wearing her iconic blonde bombshell hair down in loose waves. Clearly, we should all be so lucky to be an Uptown Girl.

Binkley’s daughters, Sailor Brinkley Cook and Alexa Ray Joel, celebrated their bikini-clad SI mag debut in true skin-baring style. Sailor selected a black cutout neckline ankle-grazing dress with feather trim, plus a bold red lip which coordinated with her mom’s jumpsuit. Alexa went for a silky leopard mini slip dress teamed with strappy black shoes, a draped leather jacket and black choker necklace.

“I think it’s wonderful that they’ve been so honest and shared their stories, because I know on my little Instagram I have a lot of mom’s writing to me saying, ‘Thank you to you and your daughters for this positive message,’ and I’ve been reading it to my daughters and they’re feeling so much better about themselves.’

What do you think of  Brinkley and her brood’s red carpet outfits? Sound off below!

This Actress Used Her Dress To Send A Powerful Message About The Travel Ban

Some pictures say a thousand words. Others say 10 incredibly powerful ones.

Actress Kathreen Khavari attended the Hollywood premiere of her HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies” on Tuesday, wearing a dress painted with the words, “My Iranian immigrant mother teaches your kids how to read.”

Iran, from which Khavari says she immigrated “as a fetus,” is one of seven nations named in President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Khavari’s parents immigrated through Scotland to the U.S., she wrote on Instagram, adding the tags “#noban #nowall #fucktrump #tbt.”

Her premiere dress was “brought to you by the threat of a fascist America,” she wrote, noting that “acrylic paint looks great on clothes.”

Khavari’s Instagram shows more of her political activism via clothing. Here she is wearing what looks like the same handwritten font on a shirt at the Women’s March in Los Angeles in January:

Bill Maher Has A Very Important Message For People Interviewing Donald Trump

Bill Maher has issued a stark warning to fellow TV hosts who interview President-elect Donald Trump in the upcoming months.

If you are going to have him on, he’s a politician,” Maher said on Wednesday’s broadcast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

“I know he’s actually a game show host from Queens, but now he’s the president of the United States, so if you’re going to have him on ― this is everybody ― hold his feet to the fire,” he added. “Don’t let him use you.”

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon was accused of letting Trump do just that in September, when he messed up the GOP nominee’s hair during an interview.

Maher was a vocal critic of Trump throughout the presidential election campaign. But the comedian said he would still welcome the former reality television personality onto his show, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Although it took Maher eight years to secure an interview with President Barack Obama, he admitted Trump’s “unpredictable” nature could mean the soon-to-be president turns up for his show’s new season, which returns to HBO this Friday.

“What kind of guy is he? That’s the point.” said Maher. “It took me eight years to get Obama; [Trump] could appear on my second show. You don’t know what this guy is doing, which is why I’m sweating like a whore in church.”

Watch the full interview above, and check out the footage below of Maher revealing his No. 1 global concern.

Catherine Zeta-Jones Sends A Message To Paparazzi With Her Sexy Bikini Pics

Catherine Zeta-Jones took a page from the Selena Gomez playbook and hit back at paparazzi who crashed her vacation and snapped some unflattering pics of her. 

On Wednesday, the “Chicago” star posted a photo collage on Instagram featuring two pics of her in a black bikini. She looks great, of course. (And that scenery is making us extremely jealous.)

“Pissed the paparazzi photographed my ass, thus sharing the photographs my husband took of my ass. Always a better option for viewing,” wrote Zeta-Jones, 47, in her caption.

“Spending turkey day and giving thanks with the family in beautiful Mexico. Happy Thanksgiving!!!” he wrote.

John Oliver has an unequivocal message for those responsible for the terror attacks that killed more than 130 people in Paris on Friday: F**k you. 

Oliver started Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” with a few words about the deadly assaults.

“There are a few things we can say for certain,” Oliver said before telling the audience he was about to unleash a “moment of premium cable profanity.”

“First, as of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic fucking arseholes, unconscionable flaming arseholes; possibly working with other fucking arseholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure arseholery,” Oliver said. “Second, and this goes almost without saying, fuck these arseholes, fuck them — if I may say – sideways.”

Oliver also offered some words of support for the people impacted by the tragedy.

“Nothing about what these arseholes are trying to do is going to work. France is going to endure,” he said.

Watch the clip above to see Oliver explain why.

Will Smith Sends Sweetest Birthday Message To Daughter Willow

Before she was whipping her hair back and forth, Willow Smith was her father Will Smith’s little bean. 

The actress and artist turns 15 this Halloween, and to show her how much he cares, Papa Will penned perhaps his most meaningful words since he and Jazzy Jeff made the “Fresh Prince” theme song. Smith took to Facebook to thank Willow for “correcting” his heart and teaching him to love “without constriction or condition”:

Happy Birthday, my Bean. 15 years old today!! When you were born it took about 2 seconds to realize that I was willing…

Posted by Will Smith on Saturday, October 31, 2015

The Smith family has been in the business of making adorable messages lately. Will also sent his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, a message that melted everyone’s heart, and Jada reciprocated with a sweet post for Will.

The Fresh Prince’s message to Willow is too much, though. Ah, so many feels! Can Will please just use his ”Men in Black” mind eraser to take away all these feels?

Reunited Punks L7’s Message To Millennials: ‘Get It Together, Step Up’

Everywhere a music fan turns these days, it feels like a band at their height in the ‘90s is reuniting — and the quality of the ensuing musical output has varied widely from inspired to “why?!”

But there have been few reunions met with as much exuberance of critics and fans alike than that of L7, the explosive all-female Los Angeles grunge-punk outfit fronted by the effervescent Donita Sparks and known for their trashing, high-energy songs like “Shitlist” and “Shove.”

it all started a couple of years back when Sparks began curating the band’s Facebook page, posting photos, fliers and other band ephemera she was in the process of digitizing. In that process, Sparks also came across many hours of videos the band had shot during their original run. She showed them to filmmaker Sarah Price and the group decided to pursue the creation of a documentary using the newly discovered footage, launching a successful $ 130,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund it. 

The fan response to the Kickstarter and Facebook posts was so deafening the band, whose original lineup had last performed together in 1996, decided to give live shows another go, playing their first show in almost two decades together in LA in May. They followed that show up with a run of 11 shows in Europe and are in the midst of a mini-tour of 15 U.S. cities, playing Riot Fest in Chicago earlier this month.

The response to L7’s resurrection, especially from fans so young they weren’t alive when the band’s most recent album was released in 1999, came as a surprise to Sparks, she admitted shortly before taking the stage in Chicago’s Douglas Park. Her band is a good place, she said.

“A lot of people are like, ‘L7? Who are they? Who cares?’ And other people are like, ‘Oh, my God, it’s fucking L7!’” Sparks said. “We’re kind of in this cool, weird spot that we dig. We don’t have to be known by the masses, we just want to be known by the cool people anyway. We don’t have to convince the squares that we are a decent band.”

Decent doesn’t even come close to doing the band justice. Sparks and her bandmates — Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Demetra “Dee” Plakas — ripped through 13 songs from their catalog over the course of a taut hourlong set that felt like one of the packed weekend’s loudest and most-anticipated. One would have never guessed they were watching a band that “peaked” some 20 years earlier.

Closing with the thrilling “Fast and Frightening,” the band delivered on a request they made of the stage’s sound tent earlier in the set: to “melt off their balls and titties, in a nice way.” 

As much as the shows have represented a family reunion of sorts for L7, the Riot Fest set was also a literal homecoming for half the band’s lineup, as both Plakas and Sparks were born in Chicago.

Growing up in the Chicago area, Sparks said she turned to bands like the Ramones, Blondie and the B-52s, all of whom represented a level of eccentricity and unapologetic weirdness that provided solace from her “square” suburban surroundings.

After high school, she spent a year working in downtown Chicago as a foot messenger for a photo lab to save up money to move to Los Angeles, where she launched L7 with Gardner in 1985. The hotel the band was staying at while in Chicago actually overlooked the office building where Sparks delivered artwork on foot to advertising agencies. 

In Los Angeles, the band worked to develop their signature sound, a fiery blend of punk, metal and grunge elements, and were signed by Sub Pop, the label known for breaking artists like Nirvana and helping create Seattle-style grunge.

L7 didn’t quite breakthrough to the mainstream until their third album, 1992’s “Bricks Are Heavy.” They were even featured in a John Waters film, playing the part of a band called “Camel Lips” alongside Kathleen Turner in 1994’s “Serial Mom.”

They went on to influence a whole generation of women-fronted bands associated with the riot grrrl movement not only because of their music but also because of their politics. The band founded Rock for Choice, a decade-long series of feminist, pro-choice women’s rights benefit shows.

Sparks has stated in other interviews that she can see the need to revive the Rock for Choice series. Still, she admitted that she is disappointed in what she perceives as a lack of younger artists today who are embracing political activism at a time when many of the same pressing questions that prompted benefits like Rock for Choice remain unanswered today.

She is particularly concerned about environmental issues and though she said she was thrilled by the Supreme Court’s decision this year on marriage equality, she quipped, “If we’re all underwater, who cares if you’re gay [and] getting married.”

“I scratch my head and wonder why aren’t these younger bands doing benefits, I mean, are they? Are any of them organizing?” Sparks said. “We fucking built [Rock for Choice] from scratch. The Beastie Boys built the Free Tibet series from scratch. Are any young bands stepping up because I don’t know, they should be. I don’t get it. It’s needed now more than ever. Basically we’re the fucking Titanic sinking on every issue that we can think of. Millennials, get it together. Step up!” 

While Sparks is happy to see more popular artists embracing the term “feminist” she added that she would like to see more action in that arena as well.

“They probably are feminists but I don’t know how much that is speaking to teenage women, I really don’t. I mean, rock and roll women,” Sparks said. “If I were a teenager I’d be looking for ways to get my aggression and frustration out. I’d really just want to scream and yell at a concert because there’s a lot of stuff to be pissed off about.”

As for L7’s future past a string of shows on the west coast in November, Sparks said there are currently “no plans” for the band to create new music and that they have been exclusively focused on the live shows and the forthcoming documentary. Beyond that, she added, “you never know.” 

“We’re not being salespeople to get people to like our new album,” Sparks said. “We don’t care. We’re playing shit that’s 20 years old that people really like and they want to hear. It’s been a love fest.”

TOPLESS WOMEN CONTROVERSY: A Message to Parents visiting Times Square

If you are looking for Disneyland, then you are in the wrong state. This is New York. Times Square is a PUBLIC SPACE. And in New York City (and New York State) being topless in public is LEGAL. If businesses are upset that the law is hurting their bank accounts, then they should get the politicians to make Times Square private (which is what I presume they are trying to do). In the meantime, let’s all stop pretending that the painted women in Times Square is a violation of anything real. It is only an offense to people who come to New York City (many with kids) and want it to be an escape from reality. Well, New York City is reality, and we respect civil liberties here.

Not only is it legal to be topless in New York City, but for the sake of art, full nudity is legal in public for both men and women. I have proven this MANY times including many times in Times Square. I recently returned to New York after producing the first Amsterdam Bodypainting Day. Following a successful NYC Bodypainting Day in July (100 fully nude models in the public streets), I thought it was a good time to take the message of artistic freedom to Europe.

I was only gone for a couple of weeks and look what happened. People started freaking out about topless women! So upon my return to New York, I went back to Times Square and began painting to reaffirm that full nudity is still legal for the sake of art.

2015-08-28-1440781951-9000341-nudeinTS2fb.JPG

If the city has issue with aggressive pan handling in Times Square, then they should restrict it. But they should but restrict all of it. It’s a shame that it was only when female breasts were involved that it was decided there needed to be a change (this is prime example of gender inequality-the Naked Cowboy has been topless for decades).

Some people say that the art on the “desnudas” is not good art or not art at all or that they’re just trying to make money. Please! How many times have you seen art at a gallery or a museum, and you don’t even know what it is? If it’s a painting, it’s art. And as far as making money, that’s what everyone is trying to do. In fact, it is only because some of the richest people are in danger of making less money that we are discussing this in the first place.

Courtney Love Pens Heartbreaking Message To Late Husband Kurt Cobain

Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain turned 23 on Aug. 18, and the milestone seems to have stirred some emotions in the rock star. 

On Aug. 19, Love shared a photo of herself with her late husband, Kurt Cobain, in bed with Frances when she was just a baby. Love captioned the photo, “My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories.” 

My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories

Two days later, the 51-year-old singer shared another image from the same photo shoot and penned a heartbreaking message to Cobain, who died in 1994 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

“Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..!?!? God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim,” she wrote.

While Cobain never really seems to fade from the headlines, the late rocker was in the spotlight again earlier this year with the release of the documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” which saw Frances Bean acting as executive producer and had Love’s full support.

Uniqlo Founder Tadashi Yanai Sends a Message to America

UNIQLO’S AMERICAN DREAM: Presidential candidates aren’t the only ones trying to relay more of a true-blue everyman spirit. Uniqlo founder, chairman and chief executive officer Tadashi Yanai is the latest top brass executive to pen a personal letter as an ad to customers. The black and white two-page spread in the Aug. 6 edition of last week’s New York Times was noticeably starker than the brand’s vibrant colorful campaigns in the past. Save for the red “Dear America” intro, Yanai’s words were colorless, but aimed to convey a warmth just the same. “This country is a place where, if you have something great to offer, you will be embraced. I believed that in 1984 when I opened the first Uniqlo store in Japan with the dream of one day bringing my new idea to the United States.”
Aiming to hit $ 250 million in global sales by 2020, Yanai literally spelled out a few new initiatives including the openings of stores in Boston, Chicago and Seattle. He also explained the company’s name as an abbreviation for Unique Clothing Warehouse, and noted that LifeWear is simple apparel with a not so simple purpose: To make your life better. While not in Yanai’s words, the

When Mommy Message Board Abbreviations Get Out Of Hand

Parenting message boards can be a great resource, but they can also be a breeding ground for the overuse of abbreviations (aka… abbrevs).

The funny ladies of The BreakWomb show just how alienating this kind of talk can be in their latest video.

The conversation may be filled with “IMHO,” “BF and FF,” NMSAA,” “IDK” and “FIL,” but reminds us that not everyone speaks “Mommy Message Board.”

Louis C.K. Gets The Best Father’s Day Message From His TV Daughter

If any grumpy, balding, middle-aged dad is going to earn admiration from his kid, it’s going to be Louis C.K.

Hadley Delany, who plays one of the comedian’s daughters on “Louie,” had a Father’s Day message for her show-biz pop. It beats Hallmark treacle any day.

“You taught me the most important rule of all: never, ever get fat,” she says in a Made Man video posted last week.

Later in the clip, she asks, “What other dad would catch their daughter smoking pot and then take her out for burgers? That’s like an irresponsible level of cool.”

Hey, nobody said the guy was Ward Cleaver.

Check out the full video above. And a belated happy Father’s Day to all of you other stand-up dads, even if you don’t do standup.

Comedian Jim Breuer’s Father’s Day Message of Hope and Healing

“If we don’t find the funny, there’s not too many other ways of healing.”

— Jim Breuer

Jim Breuer knows funny. The comedian who was named by Comedy Central as one of the greatest standup comedians of all time has been entertaining us since his days on “Saturday Night Live” to his recent Epix special, “Jim Breuer: Comedy Frenzy.” But it was his movie “More Than Me,” a documentary of Breuer’s experience taking his elderly and sick father on his comedy tour, which was perhaps one of the pinnacles of his career.

At the end of the movie, Breuer tearfully contemplates losing his father. Breuer’s father died of cancer in August 2014, making this Breuer’s first Father’s Day without his father. And Breuer is sharing a simple but powerful message that he learned from, and with, his dad:

You don’t have to hide from life’s uncomfortable truths — sickness, death, fear — you can look them in the eye, laugh and move on.

Breuer described how his relationship with his dad changed over time. “Well, with my dad, he was a solid-rock man. For me, fearless. I’m going to assume that came from his World War II days. And really quiet. We never had big talks. They were always short conversations,” he explained. “But every pivotal move in my life, he gave the perfect man, fatherly advice. Leaving school, chasing my career, to getting married — everything. One little line here, one little line there. He was so big and powerful.”

But as time went on, Breuer’s dad became older and struggled with his health. The comedian was taken aback as his father appeared to be aware of his own waning health. “So when he started getting old, I remember being in this kitchen, and he looked a little off, and I’m like, ‘What’s the matter, Dad?’ And he goes, ‘I think I’m coming into my last days,'” he recalled. “So, why would you say that? ‘Do you feel like you’re having a heart attack or something?’ [He said] ‘No. I’m just coming into the end of my days.'”

This was a powerful lesson for Breuer. His dad was calmly and assertively facing sickness and death. And this may be the healthiest choice. Studies suggest that far from improving well-being, suppressing or avoiding one’s experience can actually worsen mental and physical health.

And it meant that Breuer himself had to face that reality. “It was so profound. He just knew. ‘I want you to know, I’m out of here soon,'” he said. “When I heard my dad say that, he was the one thing where I was like, ‘Oh, he’s going to live forever.’ Then I went, ‘Oh, my G-d, he’s leaving.’ And I didn’t know when or what.”

It was then Breuer started to see a different side of his father. Breuer describes: “[F]or the first time, I saw him vulnerable. Never saw him vulnerable,” he explained. “And I’d get him in the shower and get over that whole ‘I’ve got to get over looking at my father naked, and clean his rear end and scrub him.’ I know he’s embarrassed. He’s not going to say he’s embarrassed. But I can tell by his face he’s embarrassed. He’d be completely humiliated.”

So Breuer took the lesson from his dad and explored how to make the best of a terrible situation. The comic started by remembering how what his dad had done for him. “And then as he started deteriorating, I just remembered all the little things he’d do for me to keep me going. And they were so little. But they were huge,” he recalled. “And so when he started going down, it’s those moments when you look at what’s really important. I’m going to start lifting him up.”

And so Breuer turned to what he knew best — humor. This was a wise choice; not only because of his chosen profession, but also because of the evidence that humor can improve many aspects of functioning from mood, to immune functioning to learning.

“[W]e’re going to laugh about it. I’m going to drive him nuts. I’m going to do what I do best. I’m going to drive you nuts. … I would laugh so hard, busting his chops,” Breuer said. “And he loved George Carlin. That would be the only thing that would make him belly-laugh. It’s just something you take on. And I did everything in my power, and I think I succeeded to make that the best I could. We laughed. We’d make it a project. We’d laugh about it. It sucked at first. But then I’d overcome it.”

And it was a two-way street. “As much as I’d bust his chops, he’d bust mine in different ways. He knew I’d get mortified when I’d say certain things in public. He got off on that,” Breuer recounted. .”The laughing was always the healer.”

For Breuer, the laughing was not an attempt to avoid the truth, but rather what made it easier to embrace truth. “Sometimes, people don’t want to acknowledge the raw truth. Sometimes the truth is dark and ugly and hurts,” he explained. “And that goes with death and everything else. And sometimes it’s not pretty. Some of it’s just plain evil.”

And there’s one raw truth that Breuer found he was able to accept over time.

“Men like that don’t say ‘I love you so much.’ They say, ‘I did the oil in your car.’ That means, ‘G-d damn. I love you.'”

‘There’s $ 20 on your bed means ‘G-d damn. I love you.’ That’s their way.”

“And that’s up to you to figure out what that means.”

Four Years Wiser, My Message for This Year’s Graduates

A little over four years ago, in one of my last articles for Holy Cross’ student newspaper, The Crusader, I offered a reflection — a “graduation message”, if you will — for my fellow Crusaders, the class of 2011.

Inspired by graduation season, I recently reread it and was reminded of how much my life has changed since then. Now four years into the “real” and working world, long gone are the “all-nighters”, the month-long vacations and the clearly defined sense of purpose that studying provides.

2015-05-26-1432673655-915447-IMG_7307.jpg

What remains, however, is a lesson I had learned and shared at the near end of my college experience:

“I have come to learn and to believe that in every met expectation and unforeseen surprise, every accomplishment and failure, in every loss and gain, every victory and defeat, in every mistake and intention, and in every realized dream and unfulfilled hope, there is always a lesson — always an opportunity to learn something about yourself or about life, and always something to take away and remember for the future.

Sometimes, as I have come to learn, the lesson stares us square in the face, other times it is more obscure and requires a bit more awareness and faith. But, if anything, I have come to learn that it is always there, waiting to be discovered and acknowledged.”

I still believe this to be true. I might add, however, that it is equally important to remember that life is a continual process of growth and discovery — and that the moment we think we have “figured it all out” or learned all our lessons is typically when life will remind us, with a gentle touch or forceful push, that much remains for us to learn.

My friend and I used to joke throughout our four years at Holy Cross that “one day everything will be ok.” It became our secret six-word mantra the two of us shared, helping us to cope with the endless pressure and stress of an intense academic environment, not to mention our sometimes challenging social dilemmas.

Little did we know how mistaken we were — not in our youthful optimistic attitude, but in our naive belief that once we graduated and settled into a job, once we “made it on our own,” all would be right with the world, our fear and anxiety dissipating into eternal contentment.

In fact, it was a little over a year ago while talking on the phone that we laughed at our “six letter phrase” and agreed that while some days can feel like that “aha” moment, there will always be days that leave one feeling troubled and ill at ease.

But, it’s not that I don’t think we can ever find peace, joy or contentment. On the contrary, I think that the realization and acceptance of life as a journey — as something that we can never fully understand, master or even control — may actually be the first important step toward finding those very things.

As easy as it is for us to convince ourselves that “once I get to this point…” or “if only I could…” or “maybe if I do this…” then “everything will be ok”, it is a dangerous, crippling mentality and perpetual cycle of thought that prevents us from fully realizing that happiness is not some outside force that comes to us, but is, rather, something we must create and choose for ourselves.

Our focus, then, should not be on trying to “figure it all out.” It should be on finding ways to be more accepting of the place we are currently in — and looking for lessons that we can call upon for guidance in the future.

There are certainly days (weeks, months, maybe even years) when everything just seems right, when things have fallen into place and are running seamlessly. But, not all days are going to be like that. Nor should we expect them to. And that’s ok.

And so, four years wiser, my message to this year’s graduates is this:

You will likely face, in the coming months and years, a series of circumstances, decisions, questions and doubts that will test your confidence in yourself and those around you.

You will likely be met with challenges you may have expected, and those that you could never have anticipated – and while you will be able to successfully navigate some on your own, others will likely require the guidance and perspective of a loving parent or friend.

You will undoubtedly have moments of success and celebration, moments of failure and discouragement and maybe moments of utter despair.

You may even come to question yourself, your relationship with others and your role in the world around you.

And you will probably spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what exactly you want to do, or should do with your life.

2015-05-26-1432673769-3051927-photo70.jpg

But, instead of looking at these as obstacles — as something you have to suffer through in order to be “ok” — relish them. Accept them. Embrace them. And…learn from them. Only then can we realize and accept that we are the arbiters of our life and our contentment, and that everything can be ok right now if we allow it to be.

As the Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke — recognized as “one of the most lyrically intense German-language poets” — so eloquently wrote:

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

Congratulations to all 2015 graduates! Live your questions.

Brittney Griner Shares Photo From Her Wedding With A Message Of Love

Newlyweds Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson are letting fans in on their Phoenix wedding.

Griner and Johnson got married Friday in front of 75 guests at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, People magazine confirmed. The 24-year-old WNBA players said “I do” after getting engaged last August.

On Sunday, the Phoenix Mercury player took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Johnson along with a sweet message.

“I don’t care if the the world was ending at this moment! Nothing could of kept me from my wife ❤️ I think I cried the whole day until I saw her walking down that [aisle]. Then in [an] instant I was calm and full of love and all the tears turned into huge smiles and a joy that no one can explain unless you have found and married your soulmate,” she wrote.



Johnson, who plays with the Tulsa Shock, also shared a photo Sunday from the wedding for Mother’s Day. In the shot, she and Griner stand with their moms at the ceremony.



Last month, Griner and Johnson were arrested after they got into a physical fight at their Phoenix home. Griner was charged with assault and disorderly conduct, and pleaded guilty to the latter. She will attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling and all charges will be dismissed.

“It is never OK for an argument to turn physical,” Griner said in a statement released through her attorney to USA Today. “This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously. I am committed to making positive changes and I plan to use what I have learned to set a good example and help make a difference in the world around me.”

The Modern-Day Message We Can All Take Away From ‘Selma’ (VIDEO)

In 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led thousands of nonviolent crusaders on a 54-mile march from Selma, Ala., to the state capitol in Montgomery to draw attention to the equal voting rights campaign. It was a mighty journey, met with hatred and attacks ranging from police beatings to tear gas, but still they marched — and the nation took notice, with President Lyndon B. Johnson signing into law the Voting Rights Act later that same year.

Today, half a century later, modern-day marches are making headlines and history of their own, including the protests in Ferguson, Mo., in the wake of Michael Brown’s shooting by a police officer. The cast of “Selma” has spoken out about the timeliness of the film given these tragedies and events — star David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay address that here — and they also insist on the importance of continuing the conversation about civil rights.

“This has happened a couple of times to me: People say, ‘Why do we need another civil rights film?'” Oprah, the film’s co-producer and one of its actresses, says in the above video. “I go, ‘When have you seen one?’… There hasn’t been one.”

Her “Selma” colleagues agree. Not only is the history itself important, but DuVernay also believes that these past events contain powerful lessons that remain relevant today, in Ferguson and across the country. “Selma” doesn’t open nationwide until January 9, but the film was screened in Ferguson prior to its release with this very clear intention in mind.

“We showed it to a group of just 50 activists there,” DuVernay says. “It was really to serve the people on the ground. Just to really offer the tactics that were used historically.”

But something monumental happened 10 minutes before the film was over.

“The Eric Garner ‘indecision’ came through,” DuVernay says, referencing a grand jury’s decision not to indict a New York City police officer in Garner’s choking death.

As the grand jury decision was handed down, the Ferguson audience began to react. “It was… very emotional,” DuVernay says. “It was an emotional moment for them, just trying to figure out how to move forward. How do we continue to make sure our voices are heard? How do we work for systemic change?”

She praises the activists that have been doing good work in the community, but adds that it’s crucial to continue the work and the conversations long after the media spotlight fades. “One of the things that ‘Selma’ shows is the strategy, the long-tail action that goes into these protests,” she explains. “They’re not to be dismissed because they’re not on TV anymore.”

The brave men and women of 1965 knew this, Oprah says, and truly understood the power of remaining peaceful, despite the intensity of their emotions or outrage.

“King, C.T. Vivian, John Lewis, Andrew Young — they understood from the beginning that you’re more powerful with your hands up, non-resisting, than you are throwing a Molotov cocktail,” Oprah says.

Chuck Hagel Includes Gay Sailor’s Proposal In Holiday Message

Well, this is a lovely statement of solidarity for the holidays.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and his wife Lilibet released a holiday message to men and women of the Defense Department last week that included an image of MM2 2nd Class Jerrel Revels’ proposal to his boyfriend Dylan Kirchner.

This viral gay marriage proposal happened in 2013, just two short years after the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

A gay military couple has reportedly never before been included in the Defense Secretary’s holiday message for the troops.

ORG Tom Swift stepped from the door of the machine shop, where he was at work making some adjustments to the motor of his airship, and glanced down the road. He saw a cloud of dust, which effectually concealed what-ever was causing it. “Some one must be in a hurry this morning,” the lad remarked, “Looks like a motor speeding along. MY! but we certainly do need rain,” he added, as he looked up toward the sky. “It’s very dusty. Well, I may as well get back to work. I’ll take the airship out for a flight this afternoon, if the wind dies down a bit.

“God’s Not Dead” Keeps Its Message Alive

Movie Review Jackie K Cooper
“God’s Not Dead” (Pure Flix)

“God’s Not Dead” is the latest entry in the Christian/family entertainment market. Directed by Harold Cronk, the movie sends a strong Christian message while being entertaining at the same time. The cast is largely full of lesser known actors with the exception of Kevin Sorbo and Willie Robertson, but all involved play their roles with competence.

The plot involves a college freshman named Josh (Shane Harper) who signs up for a Philosophy class taught by Professor Radisson (Sorbo). On the first day of class Radisson, an atheist, asks the class to sign a statement that “God is dead” so they can skip over that philosophical argument. It must be unanimous by all class members. Josh refuses to sign the statement so Radisson tells him he can have twenty minutes or so in each class session in order to sway the class members to his side. Then there will be a vote by the class as to which side is right.

The challenge is taken though Josh’s parents and his girlfriend (Cassidy Gifford) ask him to just let it go. He researches his belief and does a magnificent job of going head to heads with the professor. Of course this stunning ability to debate such a complex issue strains credibility, but in this movie anything is possible.

There are side issues in this movie involving a young woman facing cancer, another woman trying to convince her atheist boyfriend to accept her Christian beliefs, a third woman going against her parents in order to pronounce her faith. There are a lot of challenges in being a Christian and this movie projects a variety of them.

Sorbo is effective as the atheist professor and Harper is strong as the dedicated Christian student. Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty: fame appears as himself in order to make a statement about his beliefs. There is also a solid performance from Tricia LaFache as the young woman with cancer. The musical group Newsboys appear as themselves at the end of the film to present some uplifting songs.

The movie is rated PG for adult themes.

“God’s Not Dead” is not a movie that will appeal to everyone. It is definitely aimed at Christian believers. Still the dramatic context of the script and the talent of the cast could make it entertaining for anyone. It is a bit overdone in the presentation of its message but not as extreme as it could have been.

I scored “God’s Not Dead” a living 6 out of 10.
