FIFA 20 Volta: 6 Things You Need to Know

With FIFA 20 comes a brand new game mode – Volta – an amalgamation of the gone-but-not-forgotten FIFA Street, and the more recent soap opera-like offering of The Journey. Within Volta are numerous modes – a six hour story campaign, an online league system with promotion and relegation, and standard kick-off modes.

It’s been in development for 2 years, having been considered too big an undertaking for an annual cycle and, according to creative director Matt Prior, “aims to engage with the core FIFA audience, but break down the barriers to casuals.” If it is going to manage that feat, here are things that may well see Volta make a big impact in FIFA 20.

HERE COMES THE BRIDE: While seemingly every detail from Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s second wedding in France has leaked out on social media, one key image has been missing: that of the dress worn by the “Game of Thrones” star for the official ceremony.

Summer days are here again, and longtime comic book fans know what that means: it’s event time! DC Comics has had a long tradition of setting up universe-sweeping events that often have long term effects on the heroes and villains that are part of them.

Who Is Brad Falchuk? Get to Know Gwyneth Paltrow’s New Husband

After Gwyneth Paltrow married Brad Falchuk in the Hamptons on Saturday following four years of dating, many are curious to know more about the 47-year-old writer-producer.

The couple went public with their romance in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash, after a year of flying under the radar with their relationship.

RELATED: Brad Falchuk Pens Sweet Birthday Note to Gwyneth Paltrow: ‘You Keep Getting Better Every Year’

A source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE, “She’s crazy about Brad.” Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Following their weekend nuptials, get to know Paltrow’s new husband.

He’s worked with Ryan Murphy for years 

Falchuk began his television career as a writer, working on a few short-lived series before joining the season 1 writing staff of Murphy’s FX series Nip/Tuck in 2003. From there, the two formed a strong bond — teaming up to create Glee (2009), Scream Queens (2015) and the Connie Britton/Angela Bassett-led 9-1-1 for Fox, as well as the horror anthology series American Horror Story (2011) for FX.

He and Murphy also serve as executive producers on the true crime anthology series FX’s American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016 with a season devoted to the O.J. Simpson trial and will open 2018 with a season devoted to the Gianni Versace murder.

Most recently, they collaborated on FX’s transgender drama Pose.

He met Paltrow on the set of Glee

It was on Glee where Falchuk and Paltrow would meet, as she joined the show in 2010 for a season 2 guest spot to play lackadaisical substitute teacher Holly Holliday. The appearance went so well that Paltrow would reprise her role as Holliday three more times, including the show’s 100th episode in 2014.

All in all, she covered 10 tracks on the show — from Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” and Prince’s “Kiss” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.” She later performed her most popular cover, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,”  live with Green in the 2011 Grammy Awards.

So far there haven’t been any shots of Brody and Isabella with Paltrow’s two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 14, and son Moses, 12 — whom she shares with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

In honor of her 46th birthday on Thursday, he penned a gushing tribute to his soon-to-be-wife.

“It’s this timeless beauty’s birthday today. She was born with endless gifts – big blue eyes, a brain and heart overflowing with curiosity, generosity and possibility and those heartbreakingly long legs that go on and on – but she never rests on any of them.”

For Paltrow’s 44th birthday, he praised her as “the most beautiful woman of all time. “We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love,” he captioned on Instagram.

9 Key Quotes from Meghan Markle That Reveal Everything You Need to Know About the Duchess

Years before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, she was an actress struggling to find self-confidence as she went after her Hollywood dreams. Meghan says it wasn’t until a casting director told her, “You are enough,” that she started to believe it — and it’s a message she’s been sharing ever since.

ON FINDING YOUR VALUE

“I was in my early 20s, still figuring so much out, and trying to find my value in an industry that judges you on everything that you’re not versus everything that you are. Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not ethnic enough, while also being too thin, too ethnic, too pretty the very next day.”

from Darling Magazine‘s essay, “It’s All Enough”

ON GETTING DRESSED UP

“You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of women.”

from her keynote speech at the Create & Cultivate conference 2016

ON ACCEPTING YOURSELF

“That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more makeup won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire — ‘You complete me’ — frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”

from The Tig

ON FALLING IN LOVE WITH PRINCE HARRY

“I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”

from her Vanity Fair cover in September 2017

ON CHOOSING TO BE YOURSELF

“Make a choice: continue living your life feeling muddled in this abyss of self-misunderstanding, or you find your identity independent of it.”

from Elle UK essay, “I’m More Than an Other”

ON CAREER ASPIRATIONS

“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches — I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works. And this type of work is what feeds my soul and fuels my purpose.”

from Elle UK essay, “With Fame Comes Opportunity, But Also A Responsibility”

ON REJECTING LABELS

“You draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are … You create the identity you want for yourself.”

from Elle UK essay, “I’m More Than an Other”

ON FINDING YOUR PASSION

“Don’t give it five minutes if you’re not going to give it five years.”

from her keynote speech at the Create & Cultivate conference 2016

ON BEING KIND

“We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be? … Yes, you can have questions and self-doubt, that’s going to come up, that’s human.”

Kim Kardashian West Says Her Kids Don’t Know She’s Famous: They ‘Have No Clue’

She’s a household name all over the world — except in her very own home.

According to Kim Kardashian West, her three kids with husband Kanye West — daughters North, 5, Chicago, 5 months, and son Saint, 2½ — are pretty much in the dark about their mom and dad’s level of fame.

“It’s pretty intense, but at home I’m not known,” she recently told ITV’s This Morning. “My kids have no clue what’s going on. So I don’t really feel it — I spend most of my time at home.”

RELATED: Feel the Love! See Kim, Kanye, North, Saint & Chicago’s Cutest Pics

When it comes to her mom and sisters, however, 37-year-old Kardashian West said they do reflect on how much their lives have changed in recent years.

“We do talk about how crazy our life has been over the past decade,” she said. “And we’re so grateful. We’re so appreciative, and I mean, we’re still exactly the same.”

During the 10th anniversary special of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last year, Kardashian West and her family opened up about allowing their significant others and children to appear on camera, with Kourtney Kardashian, 39, noting that “the boundaries are always changing.”

“We’ll definitely go through moments where we’re like, ‘Cut the kids way back,’ ” she explained.

“It’s funny now that Mason is getting older,” said Khloé Kardashian, 33, of Kourtney and Scott Disick‘s 8-year-old son. “He knows. He doesn’t watch it, but I’ve heard him talk to his friends and say, ‘I’m on a TV show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ I’m like, how does he know that?!”

“Mason calls the filmers,” said Kourtney. “He used to be like, ‘Are the filmers coming? I want to show them my Legos that I’m building.’ Now he’s in a phase where he’s like, ‘I don’t like when the filmers are over.’ ”

RELATED: Kim Kardashian West Catches Daughter North Face Painting with Eyeshadow: ‘What Are You Doing?!’

For her part, Kardashian West said appearing on KUWTK is “such a personal choice.”

“You can fall in love with someone, and it’s not their job to be on our show,” she said. “Kanye respects what I do and sometimes he’s on, if he happens to be there, or will let us film if we’re at a concert. At first we were like, ‘Our kids will never be on, my daughter is not going to be on.’ But she’s always around me and she’s so cute, so I just want people to see a little bit. It’s never a story revolving them or about them or anything too personal. We know that we signed up for this, but our kids did not.”

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.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

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.

Who Is Emily Ratajkowski’s Husband? Five Things to Know About Sebastian Bear-McClard

Emily Ratajkowski is a married woman.

In a surprise ceremony, the 26-year-old model tied the knot to actor and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, with whom she only started cozying up in the past few weeks, at City Hall in N.Y.C.

“I got married today,” Ratajowski wrote on a selfie with her new husband as part of a series of pics she posted right after the quick ceremony. In the snap, Bear-McClard kisses the model’s cheek as the couple holds hands. While Ratajkowski went without a massive diamond engagement ring (the couple both are wearing a simple gold band), her hubby flashed two other rings on his fingers that read “EM” and “RATA.”

So who is Bear-McClard? Here are five things to know about Ratajkowski’s husband.

1. He’s an actor and producer

Bear-McClard most recently produced the 2017 film Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson. He’s also worked on several indie films including Heaven Knows What (2014), and Still Life (2006).

In 2014, Joshua and Ben Safdie, a New York-based writer/producer/director duo, launched Elara Pictures with Bear-McClard and producer Oscar Boyson as partners.

Bear-McClard has been nominated for multiple Gotham Independent Film Awards, including Best Feature Film for Good Time. He was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in 2014 for Heaven Knows What.

2. He comes from a family of artists

Bear-McClard’s dad is an artist who moved to New York after graduating from the San Fransisco Art Institute.

“Michael was a teen rebel in the 60’s and decided he was an artist and graduated with honors from San Fransisco Art Institute and moved to New York,” Peter McClard, Bear-McClard’s uncle, tells PEOPLE. “He is an amazing artist. Some time in the 70’s he met Liza Bear and though they never married, the Bohemians that they were, they had Sebastian.”

Michael McClard currently has art on display at the Baahng Gallery in New York.

Because of his parents’ involvement in the NYC art scene, Bear-McClard grew up going to galleries and industry parties.

“Sebastian was a great, totally New York-bred kid and spent his youth being dragged to cool art events, parties and surrounded by the hippest of the hip New York art scene in the 80s and 90s.”

3. He is friends with social media star Fat Jewish

Fat Jewish (real name Josh Ostrovsky) served as a witness at Bear-McClard’s wedding ceremony, but the two go way back.

“In High School or shortly thereafter he met some friends and they had a rap group called Team Facelift and Sebastian was their official videographer,” says Peter McClard. “They were hilarious and talented and their frontman was the Fat Jew.”

The social media star also appears in Bear-McClard’s Facebook default photo.

4. His relationship with Ratajkowski has been low-key

Rumors began swirling that they were an item after the producer and model were spotted packing on the PDA on Valentine’s Day.

Though photos of them only surfaced a few weeks ago, they’ve known each other longer, according to sources.

The two had yet to go public until their wedding announcement.

5. He has his family’s support

“We’re proud of him for settling down with Emily and what he’s done and about to do in his film career,” says Peter McClard. “He’s a good, caring guy and a great listener and people love working with him because he gets things done. Apparently, Emily loves him too.”

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!”

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.

Who Is Brad Falchuk? 5 Things to Know About Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fiancé

With Gwyneth Paltrow confirming that she’s engaged to Brad Falchuk after three years of dating, many are curious to know more about the 46-year-old writer-producer.

The couple went public with their romance in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash, after a year of flying under the radar with their relationship. And they’ve been equally shy about their engagement: ET reported that Falchuk popped the question a year ago.

A rep for Paltrow has not commented yet, but a source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE, “She’s crazy about Brad.” Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Here are 5 things to know about Falchuk.

1. He’s worked with Ryan Murphy for years 

Falchuk began his television career as a writer, working on a few short-lived series before joining the season 1 writing staff of Murphy’s FX series Nip/Tuck in 2003. From there, the two formed a strong bond — teaming up to create Glee (2009), Scream Queens (2015) and the upcoming Connie Britton/Angela Bassett-led 9-1-1 for Fox, as well as the horror anthology series American Horror Story (2011) for FX. He and Murphy also serve as executive producers on the true crime anthology series FX’s American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016 with a season devoted to the O.J. Simpson trial and will open 2018 with a season devoted to the Gianni Versace murder.

2. He met Paltrow on the set of Glee

It was on Glee where Falchuk and Paltrow would meet, as she joined the show in 2010 for a season 2 guest spot to play lackadaisical substitute teacher Holly Holliday. The appearance went so well that Paltrow would reprise her role as Holliday three more times, including the show’s 100th episode in 2014. All in all, she cover 10 tracks on the show — from Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” and Prince’s “Kiss” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” and her most popular cover, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,” which she later performed life with Green in the 2011 Grammy Awards.

3. He’s a father of two 

Falchuk has two children, Brody and Isabella, from his 10-year marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, which ended in a divorce filing in March 2013. He often shares photos of the two on social media — and has taken Isabella with him as his date to the Emmys in the past.

So far there haven’t been any shots of Brody and Isabella with Paltrow’s two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 13, and son Moses, 11 — whom she shares with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

4. He gushes about Paltrow on Instagram

Speaking of sharing about loved ones on social media, Falchuk sure hasn’t shied away from expressing his love for Paltrow on Instagram.

“This is the most beautiful woman of all time and today is her birthday,” he wrote in September on Paltrow’s 44th birthday, captioning a photo of her eating pizza, drinking red wine and flashing what he described as “that f—— perfect smile.”  He continued: “We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love.”

Other photos of Paltrow on his site come from his “getting ready” series, which often features Paltrow in various stages of preparation. “#LegsForDays” Falchuk hashtagged one shot of his fiancée.

5. He’s priming a groundbreaking new television project

Falchuk’s newest project, the pilot of which is currently filming in New York City, is the upcoming FX show Pose. Set in the Big Apple in the ’80s, the show focuses on a “the collusion of various worlds including the elite rich and the downtown ball culture,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

That’s not what makes it unique, of course. No, Pose will break through as the show with the most transgender series regulars of any show in American television history. A first look image of trans cast members Hailie Sahar, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Angelica Ross, and M.J. Rodriguez dropped earlier this month.

Pose also features Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, and Tatiana Maslany in major roles. Tony Award winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots) is also set to appear.
