Budapest Cancels ‘Billy Elliot’ Performances

FERENC ISZA/AFP/Getty

BUDAPEST—The Hungarian State Opera has cancelled 15 performances of Billy Elliot, after a pro-government newspaper claimed it could ‘turn’ kids gay.

For some Hungarians, it’s a sign of a renewed culture war after the far-right populist Fidesz party won an absolute parliamentary majority in April elections.

While anti-LGBT voices appear to be on top, it’s still not clear who’s winning.

Billy Kemper and Paige Alms Win 2017/2018 Big Wave Tour Titles

WSL PRESS RELEASE

LOS ANGELES, California/USA (Wednesday, February 28, 2018) – Today, Billy Kemper (HAW) and Paige Alms (HAW) officially earned the World Surf League (WSL) Big Wave Tour (BWT) men’s and women’s titles for the 2017/2018 season.

The 2017/2018 BWT season witnessed incredible performances from the world’s best surfers across three unique competitions — the Puerto Escondido Challenge in Mexico, the Pe’ahi Challenge in Hawaii, and the Nazaré Challenge in Portugal.

“Congratulations to our Big Wave Tour Champions, Paige Alms and Billy Kemper,” said Mike Parsons, WSL Big Wave Tour Commissioner. “Both of these competitors showcased groundbreaking performances this season in extremely challenging conditions. They truly demonstrate the commitment and courage required to compete and win at this level.

“This season we called on the Puerto Escondido Challenge, the Pe’ahi Challenge, and the Nazaré Challenge. Pe’ahi received a Gold coefficient with 55-foot face waves, and both Puerto and Nazaré received a Bronze coefficient with 35-foot face waves. We were not able to run the Mavericks Challenge this big wave season due to unfavorable conditions but are excited about the opportunity to run starting in October 2018.”

Maui’s Billy Kemper earned his first Big Wave Tour Title by making the Finals in all three BWT events this season, including runner-up finishes at Pe’ahi and Nazaré.

“I am overwhelmed and excited to be the Men’s Big Wave Tour Champion,” said Kemper. “It has been nothing but a blessing to be on this path, and I am so thankful for my family and everyone who has supported me to get here. I lost my older brother when I was eight years old and we thought he was going to be a World Champion. I wanted to live out my brother’s dream and accomplish this for my family.”

Over the past three years, Kemper has become a force on the big wave scene, most notably with his back-to-back Pe’ahi Challenge victories. In 2017, Kemper finished sixth on the BWT rankings but won the prestigious Big Wave Award Ride of the Year recognition for his incredible barrel at the Pe’ahi Challenge in 2016.

“Last year, my mom was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer,” Kemper said. “Everything I did this year was for my mom and the reality is that this, my goal to become champion, had a time limit to it. I felt like this was my chance and my opportunity. Tomorrow is never promised. It was hard enough leaving my mom for a week for the Nazaré Challenge. I basically told myself that it was an all-or-nothing situation. My goal was to have my mom see me as the best I ever was, right now, and I wanted to win this for her. I am so excited to be able to celebrate with my family and share this with my mom. It is truly a blessing and I am so thankful.”

The BWT Title race took a pivotal turn during the final event of the season, the Nazaré Challenge when Kemper’s second-place finish moved him just past Kai Lenny (HAW) for the rankings’ lead. Both Kemper and Lenny are leading the next generation of big wave surfers with their innovative and fearless performances in all conditions.

“I want to be a force to be reckoned with,” said Kemper. “I am very excited and thankful to be a part of this generation of surfers and a part of this turning point in surfing. There has been a changing of the guard on the Championship Tour — with surfers like John John Florence, Gabriel Medina, Filipe Toledo, Julian Wilson — and I’ve tried to take that as motivation into the Big Wave Tour. I want to bring something new and I am excited to be one of the frontrunners of this generation in big wave surfing.”

Today’s achievement marks Alms’ second BWT title-clinching, after earning the Big Wave crown last year. Alms successfully defended her Pe’ahi Challenge win in massive waves last October to take the Big Wave Rankings’ lead and further evidence her dominance at the infamous Jaws break.

“Winning a World Title, let alone two, has been a childhood dream since I can remember,” said Alms. “I am so honored to be able to win twice and bring the trophy back home to Maui, where it all started for me. It is an amazing feeling to be at the top with these awards and titles, but to be honest, win or lose, I feel like I’m always winning. Being able to do what I do and share that with my friends and family, I’m winning everyday. I hope that what I am accomplishing in my career will give hope and inspire the next generation to go after their goals and dreams.”

Alms has been charging big waves since she was 15 years old and now looks to be unstoppable amongst her competitors and against monstrous conditions. The Maui surfer earned the Women’s Best Performance recognition at the Big Wave Awards in 2017 after six-straight nominations starting in 2012.

In addition to her big-wave pursuits, Alms was also featured in a 2015 documentary called The Wave I Ride, from director Devyn Bisson. The film portrayed Alms’ journey to the big-wave arena, including both her support system — specifically, her partner and shaper, Sean Ordonez, and her mother — and the odd jobs and training routine that she has juggled along the way.

This year’s Women’s Big Wave Tour witnessed Alms win the Pe’ahi Challenge, with big wave legend Keala Kennelly (HAW) earning second place and Justine Dupont (FRA) in third.

“I believe that having a platform to perform in the best conditions with only six women in the water is one of the best ways to push the level of the sport,” continued Alms. “As big wave lineups get more and more crowded, I really look forward to having these events that allow for an empty lineup and being able to pick and choose our waves that you truly want. I really look forward to having more than one event next season. Although I think Jaws is by far the best wave on the tour, it will be nice to challenge ourselves in other conditions. I am really excited to surf Mavericks with just a handful of surfers out.”

Alms and Kemper will be recognized at the WSL Awards on March 8 on the Gold Coast of Australia and the Big Wave Awards scheduled for April 28 in Southern California.

Billy Reid Reflects on 20 Years in Fashion

NEW YORK — Billy Reid could be a case study in resilience.
Since he created the first William Reid collection in March 1998, the soft-spoken Southern designer has experienced more than his share of ups and downs.
The ups: He has built his Southern-flavored Americana designer collection into a successful wholesale business at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom and 13 of his own Billy Reid stores. He’s also won four Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.
The downs: His initial foray into fashion, William Reid, failed following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, driving the designer and his family from New York back to his home state of Alabama.
But despite the roller coaster that has defined his career, Reid is happy to be at the helm of a $ 25 million brand as he prepares to celebrate his 20th anniversary next year.
“Failure? I’ve been there,” Reid said, sitting on a chair in his showroom on Bond Street here. “Losing everything overnight was so humbling, but it makes you realize what’s important to you and that you can recover.”
Reid’s story begins in the small town of Amite, La., where his mother owned a women’s boutique called T.J.’s for Her that operated out of

How Billy Russo’s Love For the Punisher Spawned Jigsaw

Warning: This article contains SPOILERS for The Punisher.

It’s no secret that the character Billy Russo becomes the villain Jigsaw. It’s right there in the comics. But when you start watching Marvel’s The Punisher, it might be difficult to see how Ben Barnes’ war vet, and best friend of Frank Castle, can become this comic-book bad guy. Indeed, some fans were unsure that this new version of Russo would even become his comic-book alter ego.

As Season 1 wears on, however, Billy Russo is gradually transformed into Frank Castle’s arch-enemy. Paradoxically, it’s the unwavering affection Russo has for Frank that makes his transition to villain, and ultimately Jigsaw, so convincing.

Jon Bernthal, who plays Frank Castle in the show, tells FANDOM: “I think [Ben Barnes as Russo] does a beautiful job, and something that I thought was really present in everything he did is this love that he had for Frank. Even as they become complete antagonists and they go up against each other, the love is always there. I think that’s really honest.”

Honest equals real. Which in turn equals believable. These are three-dimensional, complicated characters. Honesty, authenticity and credibility are the benchmarks of this series and that can sometimes make it a tough watch.


Ben Barnes does a beautiful job as Billy Russo.

The Man in the Mirror

Marvel’s The Punisher takes the dark tone of the Defenders series and magnifies it tenfold. If there’s escapist fun to be had amid the gloomier, murkier aspects in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist — and team-up show The Defenders – there’s a distinct lack of it in The Punisher. In dealing with themes like PTSD and terrorism, The Punisher feels grittily realistic. And its violence is brutal; the results of said violence, visceral.

From the start, Russo is set up as ally to a presumed-dead Frank Castle. When Russo finds out his old friend still alive, they meet, and he keeps up what is eventually revealed to be a charade. Sure enough, we find out that Russo is working against Frank with nefarious sociopathic CIA operative Rawlins and wants him dead. In the final episode, a fight with Frank goes badly wrong for Russo. It’s this that sparks his transition to Jigsaw, setting up a villain we’re eagerly looking forward to seeing next season.

While the comics saw handsome gangster Billy Russo receive the facial scars that earn him his Jigsaw nickname from a close encounter with a pane of glass, Frank carves up Billy’s face on a broken carousel mirror. We later learn that Russo’s brain may never fully recover from the savage beating he endures. Later, in the hospital, there’s doubt cast on what he’ll remember if he ever wakes up from his coma.

Bernthal says that, in switching the glass from the comics to a broken mirror in the series, another layer is added to their complex relationship, and to the conflict between them.

“He really cares what Frank thinks,” he says. “And I think that ability then to show him to himself at the end and to make him see what he’s done, and for us to really look at each other through it and to now bring him into my world and understand the shame… I think it was good for us.”

It’s difficult to know what this means for Season 2 of The Punisher, presuming we get one. But it’s safe to say that the dynamic between them won’t be easy to pigeonhole.

Russo is in cahoots with CIA operative, Rawlins.

A Relevant and Honest Origin Story

Showrunner Steve Lightfoot says that the hard work wasn’t in setting up Jigsaw’s signature look – his scarred face – but in building the character.

“It’s his origin story, it’s our version of it,” says Lightfoot. “In some ways, it was all about creating a version of Billy Russo as a character that felt real and relevant and sort of honest. And I think Ben breathed such life into him. We always knew how it was going to end but in some ways, the turning him into Jigsaw is the easy part because all you need to do is mess his face up at the end. But the thing I’m most proud of is I think we’d created a fantastic character before that happened.”

As for that scene at the season climax when Castle “messes up” Russo’s face, it was a neat way of bringing things full circle.

“Rather than just being in a flashy place, it was born of wanting it to relate right back to everything that had started this journey,” says Lightfoot. “So there was always something about this story [that] was always going to end up back at this carousel [where Castle’s family was killed]. And the great thing about carousels is they have mirrors right around the inside. So once we’d worked out that this thing was all about ending where it began it was then about, well, there’s plenty of glass available to us.”

The Punisher is now available on Netflix.

Seth Rogen And Billy Eichner To Voice Timon And Pumbaa In Live-Action ‘Lion King’

A live-action “Lion King” is in the works and we couldn’t be more excited for who has been tapped to play iconic duo Timon and Pumba.

Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner are slated to voice the warthog and meerkat we’ve known and loved for the past 20 years, according to The Wrap.

Directed by Jon Favreau, this live-action remake comes on the heels of his other recreation of a Disney classic, “The Jungle Book.” 

On staying true to the roots of the story, Favreau told The Hollywood Reporter:

“People grew up with it in an age of video where they’re watching it over and over again. So, I have to really examine all of those plot points. Also, the myths are very strong in that, so you’re hitting something even deeper than the movie sometimes. What I’m trying to do is honor what was there .… There are certain expectations people have.”

In addition Eichner and Rogen, “The Lion King” reboot already has Donald Glover and James Earl Jones in its cast. Glover will play Simba and Jones will revive his role as Mufasa. 

Are you internally screaming? Because we’re so AMPED for Rogen and Eichner’s rendition of “Hakuna Matata.”

2019 can’t come soon enough!

HuffPost has reached out to Rogen and Eichner for comment and will update this piece accordingly.

Conan & Billy Eichner Join Grindr And Leave Nothing To The Imagination

Sorry, Tinder. You’ve been swiped left.

After Conan O’Brien’s crazy adventures with Dave Franco on Tinder, he decided to try out another popular dating app for one of his hilarious remote segments. This time around, the talk show host invited comedian Billy Eichner to help him navigate the world of Grindr: an app geared towards gay, bisexual and bi-curious men.

If anything, O’Brien took his Tinder experience and cranked it to 11. The talk show host has conversations that leave nothing to the imagination (you’ll never look at a birch tree the same way again), brings a bowl of condoms that makes it look like he’s passing them out as Halloween candy and rides around in a creepy van with another glorious paint job. And incredibly, he’s actually pretty successful.

Billy Crystal: Gay Scenes On TV Sometimes ‘Too Much For Me’

Billy Crystal was one of the first actors to play a gay character on television, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t wary of some of the gay content that ends up on the small screen.

The beloved comedian opened up about his feelings regarding the nature of gay scenes on television while speaking at a panel for the Television Critics Association on Sunday in Pasadena, California, the Independent reports.

“Sometimes I think, ‘Ah that’s too much for me,'” Crystal said. “Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are.”

As Deadline reports, Crystal also spoke about his groundbreaking gay character, Jodie Dallas, which he played on ABC’s “Soap” from 1977 to 1981.

Crystal spoke about the role on Sunday, ET Canada reports:

There were times where I would say to [the actor who played his boyfriend], ‘Bob, “I love you,’ and the audience would laugh nervously, because, you know, it’s a long time ago, that I’d feel this anger. I wanted to stop the tape and go, ‘What is your problem?’ Because it made you sort of very self-conscious about what we were trying to do then. And now it’s just, I see it and I just hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face — well, that sounds terrible — to the point of it just feels like an everyday kind of thing.

Crystal is currently promoting his upcoming new FX series “The Comedians,” which is his first television series since “Soap.”

In recent years, more and more queer content is making its way onto the airwaves. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters and storylines can be seen in popular shows like “Looking,” “Modern Family,” “Empire,” “Transparent,” “Orange is the New Black,” “American Horror Story” and “Glee.”

Earlier this month, comedian Kevin Hart also sounded off on gay roles in Hollywood. “I can’t [play a gay character] because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent, because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part,” he told hosts of the Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105.1. “What I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way I’m supposed to.”

Bonnaroo 2015 Lineup Includes Billy Joel, Kendrick Lamar And Deadmau5

Bonnaroo, arguably the biggest music festival of the summer, announced its lineup on Tuesday. Including Billy Joel, Mumford & Sons, Deadmau5 and Kendrick Lamar, the list features some artists who blew critics away in 2014 (Run The Jewels, Hozier and Caribou, to name a few) and newcomers who are just starting to get their festival sea legs (see: Tove Lo, Odesza and Ryn Weaver). Bonnaroo regulars like Florence and the Machine, Alabama Shakes and Flying Lotus are also on the bill.

Set in Manchester, Tennessee, Bonnaroo will run from June 11-14, and features more than 125 bands. Tickets go on sale Jan. 17 at 12 p.m. ET. Here’s the full list of artists scheduled to perform:

Brother And Sister Star As Billy Porter And Cyndi Lauper In Adorable Recreation Of Gap Ad

Kembe and India Howerton saw a Gap ad featuring “Kinky Boots” Tony Award winners Cyndi Lauper and Billy Porter and thought they were looking in a futuristic mirror.

Their mom, Kristen Howerton, who blogs at Rage Against The Minivan and also on The Huffington Post, helped the siblings recreate that ad for fun, and posted the image on her social media accounts. The resemblance is adorably uncanny:

Gap’s official Twitter account responded to Howerton, calling the side-by-side photo recreation “Worthy of a Tony!” According to Broadway.com, Lauper and Porter spread their show’s message of tolerance as part of Gap’s “Make Love” campaign.
