“I’ve got so many tales to tell."
Madonna continues to promote the release of her new album Rebel Heart and the forthcoming launch of her new Rebel Heart Tour in any way she can and this week sat down for an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 to talk about thangs. In her chat, Madonna revealed that she’s been thinking about the possibility of writing her autobiography. Maddy reveals, duh, that she’s “got so many tales to tell” and since she made a stunning career telling stories in song, it makes sense that she might be interested in penning her own life story. According to Madge, if she wrote a book like this it would have to cover her whole life story … which is something that I DEFFO would want to read.

Lisbeth Salander's story continues
Remember back in December of 2013 when it was first reported that new books in Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium Trilogy series (aka the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books) would be written by a new author named David Lagercrantz? Well, today we learn that the first book in the continuation of the series has been given a title and a book cover. The Girl in the Spider’s Web will continue the story of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist even tho the author who created the series died a decade ago. News that the book series would be continued by a new author was met with some controversy but the book is coming whether folks like it or not. Click below to see the cover of The Girl in the Spider’s Web along with the new covers of the previous Millennium Trilogy books and learn more about this new book. More »
"LOOK AT MY TITS!!!"
J.K. Rowling switched gears a while back and published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy. A lot of you were skeptical about the book, but also interested, given the author’s unprecedented success with the Harry Potter series. And someone must have liked the book because it’s been adapted into an HBO miniseries. Judging from this first drama-filled trailer, I will definitely be tuning in come April. Johnny Campbell (of Doctor Who) directed, and the three-part miniseries stars Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney and Michael Gambon. Peep the video for more!
I co-sign this movement
This is weird. I’ve been obsessing over Amber Rose a bit via her Instagram posts, but I’m actually finding myself aligned with her on an idealogical level and it’s a little bizarre. In just a few key Instagram posts, she took down entertainment articles that fat-shamed her, slut-shamed her friend Blac Chyna, and announced the release of her forthcoming book. So. Yeah. I think I’m in love or something. Click inside for more.
"An Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes"
On April 28, a Star Wars novel titled Lords of the Sith will be released and it will feature the first lesbian character in the Star Wars canon. Author Paul S. Kemp revealed this news in a tweet where he explains that the creation of this character wasn’t done to appease any “demographic group”. He says this character, named Delian Mors, just happens to be gay … it’s just part of her character description which also describes her as “an imperial who has made some very serious mistakes“. I have to admit, altho I am a huge Star Wars fan, I’ve never read any of the novelization books so I was unaware that LGBT characters have already been introduced in the canon … news of this first lesbian character has clued me in to the rich diversity that exists in these books … and I love it! Read on to learn more about this new lesbian character who will come to life when Lords of the Sith is released in April. More »
UM WHAT?! Yes.
Ages ago I heard about this movie and I was really excited, partly because Oprah Winfrey was going to play God… and that casting decision made a lot of sense to me. I’d also told myself to hurry up and read the book before the movie came out, so I still have to get myself a copy of The Shack. I’m not sure if any of you have read it, but it sounds really interesting, and I suspect the movie adaptation will be pretty fascinating as well. However, since I heard about the production last year, there’s been a casting change—and I have to say I’m equally excited (maybe even more so) to see Octavia Spencer take on the role. It’s not final yet, but it looks like it’s happening. Click inside for more!
One writer has made a fascinating connection
Right now, people everywhere are watching the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie. As you all know, I have been oddly and unabashedly excited about this film since we first learned about it way back when. And I’ll be seeing it this Sunday, because that is what the Sabbath day is for. I plan to laugh, cringe, and totally enjoy myself. I’m not sure that I’ll be turned on at all, but I look forward to being pleasantly surprised. I’ve been browsing through reviews a bit, PITNBr fab4runner has already given her critique of the film on my Instagram account, so I’m psyched. And now Madonna herself has joined in on the Fifty Shades of conversation, which somehow became a conversation about Drake. Click inside for more!
