“It’s all nothing until it’s something"
Back in May it was officially confirmed by Disney that plans are in the works to reboot the Indiana Jones film franchise after reports suggested that Chris Pratt was being considered for the role of Dr. Henry Jones. In the new issue of GQ magazine, Pratt talks about those rumors and he shuts down reports that he will be starring in a bunch of movies (including Ghostbusters and Knight Rider) as “bullshit”. BUT when the talk turns to those Indiana Jones reboot rumors, Chris says that no one’s “called him” about the part but he doesn’t at all suggest that it is out of the realm of possibility. Read on.

“We’ve got one screenplay and a novella."
The much-anticipated, long-delayed reboot/sequel Max Max film Fury Road opened in theaters last weekend to great success (and overwhelmingly positive reviews) which means, of course, that plans are already in the works for the follow-up film. In a new interview with director George Miller, we learn today that plans for the next film began in earnest before Fury Road was released due to delays in getting that movie finished and in theaters. You see, Miller has a plan for the future of Mad Max. George Miller reveals that the next Mad Max film will be titled The Wasteland. In addition, he reveals the actor he was hoping would play Max in these reboot films back when filming was due to begin in 2006 … click below to find out who Miller originally wanted for the role of Max Rockatansky.

"I realized I was f---ing everything up..."
Anybody who’s not on the Taylor Swift train is about to get left behind real quick—especially after this Bad Blood music video extravaganza.

Swifty is known for having a slew of celebrity friends who all seem to adore her, and now we can add the incomparable Florence Welch to that list. She recently opened up in Billboard Magazine about a difficult time in her life, and how wise words from her friend helped her through it. Click inside for more!
Sexism "is an intense sickness."
This is pretty much my favorite story circulating online right now. I’ll admit that I haven’t seen Melissa McCarthy‘s recent movies, but I’ve been a fan of her comedy for some time now and I’m so happy to hear that she’s not taking shit from people. That’s pretty much the basis for any movement—feminism, black rights, LGBTQ rights—people deciding individually and collectively that they’re finished taking shit. Melissa McCarthy got approached by a critic who wanted to be all chummy with her, after lit’rally writing that “she was “only a good actor when [she] looked more attractive.” Suffice it to say, McCarthy [verbally] destroyed him.

"We wish him the best of luck with whatever he gets up to."
Last week we learned of the very sad, very public Twitter feud that erupted between former One Direction member Zayn Malik and continuing 1D member Louis Tomlinson over a photo that was posted online. Today, we get to see video of a new interview with the members of One Direction that they gave to James Corden on The Late Late Show last night. In their chat, the 1D lads spoke about their feelings regarding Zayn‘s decision to leave the group (“At first we were a little bit angry. We were surprised.“) as well as Louis‘s now-settled Twitter beef with Zayn (“It’s all good in the hood.“) in an effort to put the drama behind them. In addition to their interview chat, the members of 1D played a bit of dodgeball with Corden on the show … which you can watch below. More »
Cosby will address students later today
At present, more than 40 women have accused Bill Cosby of rape and/or sexual assault over course of the last year or so but going back 30+ years into his career. Earlier today, Cosby made an appearance on Good Morning America to address those allegations in a very bizarre manner that didn’t really address the allegations at all. Cosby is scheduled to deliver remarks to a group of students in Alabama later today and the expectation is that his participation at and event called March for Education will cause some controversy … because he has been accused by so many women of assault and has yet to actually discuss those allegations. His appearance on GMA was meant, I think, to diffuse some of that controversy … but after hearing his remarks below, it appears he has only made the situation more confusing. More »
"We went back too fast, and when the matriarch died the sisters started fighting."
It has been some time since Joan Rivers passed away but her daughter Melissa Rivers is still not over the pain of loss … particularly in the wake of the debacle that Joan‘s E! show Fashion Police turned into after Kathy Griffin took over as host. As you may recall, the hosts of Fashion Police got into trouble when Giuliana Rancic made that racist comment about Zendaya on the show and then Kelly Osbourne quit as co-host, followed by Kathy Griffin who quit as well. In a very long interview with Hoda Kotb, Melissa shares her belief that Griffin, “kind of shit all over [Joan Rivers's] legacy”. She goes on to say, “It was a very, very difficult time, I had a lot of conversations with everybody involved … It really shows that we were a family. We went back too fast, and when the matriarch died the sisters started fighting. It was extremely frustrating as I had to keep my eye on the franchise and the legacy of it and not get involved in the personal,” she said. “I felt like ‘Fashion Police’ was this little jewel, and it was the last piece I had of my mother and I working together. I felt like all these people were so out of control including the one who made the allegations of racism. They took the last thing I had and smashed it,” she said. “I felt like I was Humpty Dumpty and I was on my knees gluing it back together. It never would have happened if [Joan] was alive,” she said.
The interview above is almost an hour long, but Melissa starts talking about her mother, Fashion Police and Kathy Griffin at around the 20:24 mark.
