John David Washington Reveals He’s Single [WATCH]

Photo Credit: Izumi Hasegawa / PRPhotos.com 

Denzel and Pauletta Washington should be proud of their son John David for a ton of reasons.

One, he’s always repping for his mother; two, he’s a great actor; and three, he seems like a humble person who isn’t too wrapped up in the fact that he is the son of one of the greatest actors of all time… and a classically trained pianist, former Broadway performer and Juilliard graduate. (We won’t make that mistake)

We can’t help but to swoon over him and things just got better because he revealed that he is “Single AF” during an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Say what, now?!

Check out the full interview below to hear what he is looking for in a partner and about his love for Beyonce.

Same, John David, same.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Poke Fun at Each Other in Hilarious Wedding Anniversary Posts

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have hit a marriage milestone!

The couple, who have been together for 12 years, celebrated their five year wedding anniversary on Friday. For the occasion, Legend and Teigen each shared sweet Instagram posts to each other — but not without some of their usual jokester antics.

“12 years ago today, I met the man of my dreams. And 5 years ago today, we got married,” wrote Teigen, alongside a professional shot of the couple kissing at their Lake Como, Italy wedding. “We have two babies and some pups and a life I am grateful to have. My everything, I love you and am so proud of the story we’ve created.”

To finish the post, the Cravings author jokingly called out her husband for stealing her thunder.

“But you are an a—— for releasing your @nbcthevoice news on my target launch day for real,” Teigen wrote, referring to the news that Legend was joining NBC’s The Voice as a judge for season 16. The announcement ironically came on the same day that Teigen revealed that she was partnering with Target for a kitchen line.

RELATED ARTICLE: John Legend Says Chrissy Teigen ‘Inspires Me Every Day’ as He Reflects on EGOT Win

Responding to his wife’s jokingly spiteful banter, Legend posted his own Instagram post in honor of their anniversary.

“What can I say on a day like today?” the dad-of-two began the post, alongside a photo of him and Teigen in formal attire sitting cheek-to-cheek on the floor.

He also included a second photo to the loving message, which was a selfie taken by the musician, featuring Teigen in a red jumpsuit and a smiling baby Luna.

“I could talk about the 12 beautiful years I’ve known you. I could talk about the 5 years of wedded bliss, the 2 wonderful children we’ve brought into this world,” Legend continued, referencing the couple’s two-year-old daughter, Luna Simone, and son Miles Theodore, who is almost four months old.

“But I feel the urge to say something far more important,” the “All of Me” singer continued. “I LOVE your new kitchenware line at @Target. I can’t wait for it to come out on September 30th.”

Legend then went on to highlight his wife’s other recent accomplishment: “Did I mention that your Cravings Cookbook is coming out Tuesday? Because it’s coming out Tuesday,” he wrote before finishing with a sweet final message of, “I love you, baby.”

Since getting married in 2013, the couple has been very candid about their relationship and intimacy.

Following the birth of their second child, Teigen revealed that while they still find each other incredibly attractive, sometimes they’re just too exhausted between work and parenting two kids to find time for sex.

“It doesn’t matter who you are — even if you’re a sexy R&B crooner or an ex-swimsuit model, you’re just tired,” Teigen told Women’s Health for their October cover story.

Added the Lip Sync Battle co-host: “We still have that passion for each other, but are we doing it randomly in a dressing room? No!” she exclaimed, before adding that she felt confident they would “get back into it again.”

Still, there is one surefire way to get both parents feeling in a frisky mood. “It is funny,” she added. “If he performs somewhere, and I go, I’m like, ‘Oh he’s sexy.’”

Teigen explained that in those situations, “We’ll probably have sex that night.”

John McCain Found Lifelong Inspiration From a Hemingway Hero

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

No literary figure, Senator John McCain often pointed out, had more influence on how he conducted his life than Robert Jordan, the hero of Ernest Hemingway’s 1940 novel about the Spanish Civil War, For Whom the Bell Tolls.

In his most recent book, The Restless Wave, written in collaboration with Mark Salter, McCain wrote about his impending death by observing, “’The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it,’ spoke my hero, Robert Jordan, in For Whom the Bell  Tolls. And I do, too. But I don’t have a complaint. Not one.”

McCain first read For Whom the Bell Tolls when he was 12, and he returned to it in succeeding years. “It’s my favorite novel of all time. It instructed me to see the world as it is, with all its corruption and cruelty, and believe it’s worth fighting for anyway, even dying for,” McCain observed earlier this year in an interview. The title of McCain’s 2002 memoir, Worth Fighting For, comes from the same For Whom the Bell Tolls passage that he quotes in The Restless Wave.

John Goodman Hints That Roseanne Barr’s Character Will Be Killed Off in Show Spinoff

(LOS ANGELES) — John Goodman is speculating that this fall’s “Roseanne” spinoff will mean curtains for the matriarch played by Roseanne Barr.

In an interview with the Sunday Times of London, Goodman said he wasn’t sure how the new series, titled “The Conners,” will be structured.

But he guessed that his character will be “mopey and sad” because his wife has died.

Goodman played husband Dan Conner to Barr’s character on ABC’s original “Roseanne” and last season’s revival.

The network fired Barr after she posted a racist tweet, which she apologized for but has said was misinterpreted.

Goodman said he’s certain Barr isn’t a racist.

“The Conners” spinoff was announced by ABC after Barr agreed to relinquish any participation in it.

A representative for Goodman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

A New Low: White House Raises Flag Before John McCain Is Laid to Rest

The flag at the White House was raised back to full-staff Monday morning, just hours after it had been briefly lowered to recognize the death of Republican senator and former presidential candidate John McCain.

The move breaks with a tradition that has normally seen sitting senators who die in office have flags officially lowered until burial—and again lays bare the lack of sympathy Trump showed throughout the Arizona Republican’s public battle with brain cancer and particularly in the wake of his death at age 81 on Saturday.

The flag remains at half-staff at other government sites across Washington, including at the Capitol and at the Washington Monument.

Ex-CIA Director John Brennan to Bill Maher: Trump Is ‘A Real Threat to Our National Security’

HBO

John Brennan is pissed.

The former CIA director under President Obama, and the architect of the bin Laden raid, sat down with host Bill Maher on Friday night’s Real Time to vent about President Trump, who last week took it upon himself to revoke his security clearance. In a statement delivered by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Trump pointed to Brennan’s “frenzied commentary” and “unfounded and outrageous allegations” as the reason for the revocation—without, of course, getting into any specifics.

Brennan, who currently serves as an MSNBC analyst, has been very critical of Trump’s cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, branding the president’s ring-kissing during their Helsinki summit “nothing short of treasonous.”

Brennan, who currently serves as an MSNBC analyst, has been very critical of Trump’s cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, branding the president’s ring-kissing during their Helsinki summit “nothing short of treasonous.”

Jodie Sweetin Addresses Rumor She’s Slept With John Stamos

How rude! Jodie Sweetin clapped back at a troll for accusing her of sleeping with John Stamos.

The Hollywood Darlings actress had the exchange after she posted a throwback photo of Stamos for his 55th birthday. “Happy Birthday, Uncle J! My, my… we’ve made quite the memories these last 30+ years!” she wrote on Sunday, August 19. “I can’t believe you’re about 10 years younger than I am currently in this photo!! We were babies! (Well, I actually was… haha) Love you so much.”

A user responded: “How can you still say uncle to him when it’s been reported that you slept with him?! That’s just nasty.”

Sweetin, 36, shut down the rumor — and fast. “Hahahah…um…what?!” she wrote. “Yeah…that’s def not true.”

Sweetin and Stamos, of course, have known each other for decades. They played Stephanie Tanner and Uncle Jesse, respectively, on Full House from 1987 to 1995 and reprised their roles in Netflix’s Fuller House.

As for her love life, Sweetin is currently dating boyfriend Mescal Wasilewski. A source told Us Weekly that they have been together since November 2017. She previously was married to Shaun Holguin from 2002 to 2006 and Cody Herpin, with whom she shares 9-year-old daughter Zoie, from 2007 to 2010. She also is mom of daughter Beatrix, 7, with ex-husband Morty Coyle. She filed for legal separation in June 2013 after less than two years of marriage.

Stamos, meanwhile, welcomed son Billy in April with his wife, model Caitlin McHugh.

Bozoma Saint John is Helping Papa John’s Re-Brand

Marketing diva Bozoma Saint John has a daunting task in her new role as the chief marketing officer at Endeavor Global Marketing—helping  Papa John’s pizza navigate its current public relations nightmare.

According to CNN, the beleaguered pizza chain hired the marketing agency after the board pressured founder, chairman, and former CEO John Schnatter to step down.

Schnatter, who appeared in just about every Papa John’s TV commercial, was the face of the brand, yet, he’s been a controversial figure.

During an earnings call, the conservative-leaning businessman (and Trump voter) criticized NFL players kneeling in protest against injustice during the national anthem.

“This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago…Like many sponsors, we’re in touch with the NFL. Once the issue is resolved, we’re optimistic the NFL’s best years are ahead,” are some of the comments he is reported to have said.

Soon after, Papa John’s sales declined with Schnatter blaming the fall on the NFL protests. The NFL dropped Papa John’s as the “official pizza” of the National Football League and replaced it with Pizza Hut.

Yet, the final straw for Papa John’s board members was when news came to light that Schnatter had dropped the ‘n-word’ during a conference call designed as a role-playing exercise in an effort to prevent future public-relations snafus for the CEO. Forbes reported that on the call  Schnatter said “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” and complained that Sanders never faced public backlash. The board accepted his resignation almost immediately after the news broke.

Now, the pizza delivery chain is struggling to regain customers and repair its image. Adweek reports that Saint John led the effort to acquire Papa John’s business.

“This is a really pivotal moment not just for Papa John’s, but for all corporate businesses and all brands that service a larger group of people,” Saint John told Adweek. “Our culture has become even more sensitive to anything we feel is outside of our moral compass, and as a brand we acknowledge that.”

Saint John, a marketing guru who rose through the corporate ranks at Pepsi and Apple, began working as Uber’s chief brand officer on June 12, 2017. She was hired by ousted Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. At the time, she told Black Enterprise that she was anxious to help rebrand the company’s image. “People like me jump right into the deep end, head first. I’m already going. The practical and logistical things will catch up.”

During her tenure, Saint John took steps to improve Uber’s embattled image, even going as far as to personally work as a driver to better serve customers. Yet, despite her efforts and the shift in company leadership, Uber was riddled with scandals and controversy in 2017 and made little progress in diversifying its workforce. She left after a year.

Are ‘Counting On’ Stars John David Duggar And Abbie Grace Burnett Playing Matchmaker For Jeremiah Duggar?

Counting On star John David Duggar and his fiancée Abbie Grace Burnett set a Duggar family record last month with the quickest courtship so far. There was less than a month between their courtship and engagement announcements, and now fans are wondering if the couple is trying to play matchmaker for their siblings.

After John David and Abbie Grace posted a pic on Instagram earlier this week with his brother Jeremiah and her twin sisters, fans are losing their minds over the romantic possibilities between the Duggar and Burnett kids, as well as the chances of John David and Abbie Grace having their own set of twins.

“Wait, so there are twins on Abbie’s side as well as the two sets on JD’s? They just became front-runners for the first couple to have twins of their own,” wrote a fan on Reddit.

Jill Duggar and Anna Duggar also commented on the pic, with Jill writing “Nice!” and Anna adding, “Y’all have fun!”

Some of John David and Abbie’s followers were also crushing on 19-year-old Jeremiah — who also has a twin brother, Jedidiah — and wanted to know if he was single and looking. There are currently three boys in the Duggar family who are single and of courting age, the 19-year-old twins and 18-year-old Jason. 28-year-old Jana Duggar, John David’s twin sister, is the only single Duggar woman who is old enough to court.

After their whirlwind engagement, there is a lot of excitement in John David and Abbie Grace’s future. As In Touch Weekly reports, they announced their courtship on June 26th, and by July 25th they were engaged.

The Duggar family made the engagement announcement, and they said in a statement that John David and Abbie Grace are a wonderful match, and they make a beautiful couple. They added that they love weddings and can’t wait for this one.

A post shared by johnandabbie (@johnandabbie) on

After knowing of each other for years, 28-year-old John David and 26-year-old Abbie Grace really got know each other when he flew to Oklahoma for a church event earlier this summer. Before they started courting, John David had talked about being a “Bachelor to the Rapture,” but once he connected with Abbie Grace, he changed his tune.

Because they are quite a bit older than the other Duggars who have courted, it appears that the rules were a bit more relaxed for John David and Abbie Grace, with the couple allegedly going out unchaperoned and displaying a bit of PDA during a trip to Walmart.

To find out more about John David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett, plus get an inside look at the rest of the married Duggar kids, tune into new episodes of Counting On, which air Monday nights on TLC.

Nikki Bella: John Cena and I grew apart

OHMYGOSSIP — Nikki Bella felt she and John Cena had “grown apart” shortly before they were due to get married.
The 34-year-old professional wrestler and the ‘Blockers’ star were due to tie the knot in May but cancelled their engagement just weeks before their big day, and in a new clip for Nikki’s reality show ‘Total Bellas’ – which was filmed before their split – the star admits she doesn’t feel as close to John as she used to.
Speaking to the camera, she reveals: “I feel like I’m continuing to grow more apart from John, and I should be growing closer to him.”
In the clip, Nikki can be seen enjoying tea with her closest girlfriends during her Parisian bachelorette getaway, when she confesses the doubts she’s been having about her impending wedding.
She tells her friends, including twin sister Brie Bella: “Every little part of this wedding, it’s like, it’s going back.”
But one friend attempts to reassure her as she adds: “But you’re finally telling people what you want. And that’s the best part.”
Despite having her reservations about the wedding, Nikki admits to the camera that she doesn’t want to tell her friends exactly how she feels, as she didn’t want to “ruin” their weekend away.
She adds in the teaser for Sunday’s (22.07.18) episode: “I don’t want to ruin anyone’s weekend and they’re all here for me, so even though I’m feeling all these emotions, I just think I want to keep this to myself for a bit longer. As long as I can, at least.”
Nikki broke off her engagement with fellow wrestler John, 41, over their differing views about having children, but since their split John has said he would love nothing more than to patch up his relationship with Nikki and father her future children.
The pair are not yet back together, but Nikki has claimed she just needs “time” to herself before she considers giving John another shot.

John Oliver Turns a Microscope on CRISPR Gene Editing on Last Week Tonight

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a look at science, a.k.a. “math disguised as outer space and dinosaurs to try and seem interesting.”

Specifically, he looked at the rise of gene editing thanks to the creation of the technology known as CRISPR, which Oliver swears stands for “Crunchy Rectums in Sassy Pink Raybans.” CRISPR allows for very precise gene editing, where scientists can pinpoint a genetic defect and then “cut it out and paste in a fix at which point presumably Clippy shows up and says, ‘Hi, it looks like you’re trying to play god and alter the basic building blocks of life. Need some help?‘”

Gene-editing technology isn’t just for movies like Rampage, which stars Dwayne Johnson blitzing a 30-foot wolf (thus leading Oliver to suggest the film should have been named Wolf Blitzer). Instead, according to Oliver, gene editing is either “going to cure all disease or kill every last one of us” and for him, it’s currently unclear which way it will go. Accurate gene-editing is wildly difficult, but when it works it seems like a miracle, although as Oliver points out it’s actually “more convenient” than a miracle, because you “don’t need to spend the next 2,000 years worshiping the scientists, you can just be like ‘thanks’.”

The technology is still quite new, though. As Oliver notes, that is leading to a mismatch between expectation and the realities of current scientific capabilities, which are less about bringing woolly mammoths back to life and more about creating “beefcake beagles.”

For Oliver, though, while the possibilities of ending disease are exciting, we must balance the potential rewards with the risk of disaster, whether genetically engineering mice so they can’t get Lyme disease or trying to “fix” a genetic problem that may not need to be fixed. (“Eugenics is a word that rightly terrifies people,” says Oliver). As the technology continues to improve, he thinks we need to balance “best case scenarios like ending malaria” with catastrophic “prophecies of 30-foot wolves.”

John Legend Honors Real-Life Heroes At The BET Awards And Delivers Powerful Speech

The singer was in attendance at the BET Awards, and when he took the stage, he made sure to pay tribute to some of the people who have been making a real and positive change in the world. Not only was his speech very inspiring, but he made sure to also bring some of those heroes alongside him in front of the crowd.

‘This has already proven to be quite a year for our country. School shootings, police brutality, and now the evil act of intentionally separating parents from their children at the border,’ John Legend started.

As you may be aware, he was there in order to present the BET Humanitarian Award, and Legend explained that this year, he thought he should do things a bit differently.

‘Typically, the BET Awards honors a celebrity humanitarian who’s done something extraordinary for the world. But tonight, we want to honor a few of the people who had the opportunity in their everyday lives to do something impactful and unexpected for our community,’ he went on.

That being said, the first one he honored was a Stoneman Douglas High School student who got shot five times while selflessly attempting to help and protect fellow students during the Parkland mass shooting.

Another one that joined him on stage was James Shaw Jr., a man who wrestled an assault rifle out of a shooter’s hands during yet another mass shooting this time at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee back in May.

Justin Blackman, a high school student, was honored as well for the fact that he walked out of class on National Walkout Day by himself, to protest gun violence.

Mamoudou Gassama was introduced as a ‘real-life superhero.’

You may know who he is from a viral video that showed the man climbing a few stories outside of a French apartment complex to save a baby dangling from a balcony.

Naomi Wilder, who is only 11 years old was also recognized for her progressive mind and inspiring passionate words at the March For Our Lives event in Washington, D.C.

And last but not least, Legend named journalist Sean King, recognizing his work in uncovering and reporting ‘stories that make us aware of atrocities in our community’ and who ‘speaks truth to power’ every single day.

‘Tonight, we honor these heroes and thank them all for giving us hope and reminding us everyone has an opportunity to do something extraordinary. Don’t be afraid to be a hero,’ Legend concluded.

120 Larry Nassar Survivors Urge Michigan State University to Fire Interim President John Engler

(LANSING, Mich.) — A letter signed by 120 sexual abuse victims of former sports doctor Larry Nassar on Tuesday urged Michigan State University’s governing board to oust interim president John Engler, saying he had reinforced a “culture of abuse” at the school.

The women and girls issued their joint statement three days before the board of trustees’ next meeting and after a week in which demands for Engler’s resignation reached a fever pitch.

Engler, a former governor who took over on an interim basis in February after the previous president resigned amid fallout from the Nassar scandal, has resisted pressure to step down. Media outlets last week reported that he sent emails to another university official in April criticizing lawyers for Nassar’s sexual assault victims and suggesting the first woman to go public with her accusations was probably getting a “kickback” from her attorney.

Among those who signed the letter are Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Aly Raisman, and Rachael Denhollander, a former gymnast who has been one of the most vocal critics of Engler.

In their lengthy written statement, the 120 “sister survivors” said they stand together against “character attacks” and that Engler “has only reinforced the culture of abuse at MSU.” Current and future victims of sexual abuse “should know they can raise their voice without being characterized as pawns too foolish to know they are manipulated,” they said.

“There is no debate: President Engler has failed miserably,” they said in the letter. “Nothing at MSU — none of the mindsets that allowed Larry Nassar to abuse children for decades — have changed. Therefore, it is our position that MSU cannot move forward and become an institution of integrity and safety until John Engler is no longer president.”

Two of the university’s publicly-elected trustees, Democrats Brian Mossalam and Dianne Byrum, have called for the resignation of Engler, who served as the state’s Republican governor from 1991 through 2002. A portion of the statement is directed at the six other trustees, four Republicans and two Democrats, asking them to “stand for what is right.”

“Unfortunately, and with great regret, John Engler’s tenure as interim president has continued the bleeding rather than stem it,” Brian Mosallam said in a statement released Friday morning.

Trustees hired Engler after the former president, Lou Anna Simon, suddenly resigned in January in the wake of the Nassar scandal. Nassar himself was fired from Michigan State in 2016, two years after he was the subject of a sexual assault investigation.

Under Engler’s tenure, Michigan State has agreed to a $ 500 million settlement with 332 women and girls who said they were sexually assaulted by Nassar, a former campus sports doctor who also worked with the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team. Nassar now is in prison. Of that, $ 75 million will cover future claims.

“We stood against our abuser. We stood against an abusive culture. Now we are asking you to stand against it too and lead MSU forward into real change,” the letter said in its conclusion.

John Boyega Slams People Who ‘Harass’ ‘Star Wars’ Cast Members

Star Wars: The Last actor star John Boyega took to social media today to slam all of the franchise’s haters who like to harass cast members online. Here is what he had to say!

The 26 year old star’s tweets followed Kelly Marie Tran’s decision to delete her Instagram account as she was sick and tired of having to deal with all kinds of negative comments and trolling.

But she was not the only one who whipped her account due to the online harassment.

Back in 2016, Daisy Ridley also left social media after she had posted about gun control.

‘To the majority of the Star Wars fans thank you for supporting us and putting yourselves in our shoes. You understand that there’s a process so much appreciated!’ Boyega wrote.

‘If you do not like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing. You are not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!’ the man said in another tweet.

This month, Tran deleted all her Insta posts after she allegedly got sexist, racist and generally hateful comments on her profile.

‘On social media, a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall, but over the past four years, I have met lots of real fellow SW fans. We like and dislike stuff, but we do it with humor, love, and respect. We are the VAST majority, we are having fun and doing just fine,’ Johnson wrote.

John Lewis And Other Black Leaders Reject Black Female Challenger In Boston

As Democrats finalize their primary election picks on who will do battle against Republican candidates in November, friction between local and national political black leaders may jeopardize what was supposed to be a unified front in the fight for seats congressional seats come November. On Saturday, inside the brick-lined walls of the Twelfth Baptist Church in Boston, Georgia’s Democratic Rep. John Lewis showed up to campaign for Rep. Michael E. Capuano, a white liberal Democrat, who is being challenged by Ayanna Pressley, a black progressive.

Pressley was the first woman of color to be elected to Boston’s City Council in its 108-year history. In fact, all members of the Congressional Caucus’ Political Action Committee endorsed Capuano over Pressley, according to The New York Times.

“People who have been around for awhile, they know their way around,” Lewis said. “They know where all the bodies are buried and they know how to get things done.”

Lewis’ case for Capuano: His experience, and seniority—which he said will be needed for Democrats’ fight against President Donald Trump, rather than the youthful energy of Pressley’s grassroots campaign. “It’s important to keep a leader, a fighter, and warrior like Mike Capuano around,” he said.

The Seventh Congressional District that is up for grabs stretches from Boston’s Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods to the communities of Cambridge and Somerville across the Charles River. It is the state’s only district where the majority of residents are not white and Mr. Capuano, who is white, has never faced a serious primary challenger in his 10-term tenure in Congress.

According to the New York Times, Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), chairman of CBC’s political action committee said, “the group endorsed Mr. Capuano largely because of his longtime personal relationships with its members and his senior position on the House Financial Services Committee.” While he supports diversity in the House, Meeks said new candidates “should focus on unseating Republicans—not on defeating “a Democrat who has worked hard in the caucus.”

Local black politicians in Boston said they would have preferred the CBC follow Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey’s lead in staying neutral in the local race. Marie St. Fleur, a former state representative questioned the black caucus’s understanding of local issues. Bennie Wiley, a powerful civic leader in Massachusetts and supporter of Pressley said she was “disappointed, but not surprised.” Even Ministers at the Twelfth Baptist Church expressed concerns.

“For me, I kind of recoil and I know many leaders recoil at the idea that we’re supposed to sit back and wait our turn because someone else has voted within our interests,” Rev. Jeffrey Brown, an associate pastor who decided to skip the town hall, said.

Michael Capuano’s track record:

  • Introduced the most bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Capuano has introduced 22 bills and resolutions—the most bills compared to other legislators.
  • Got bicameral support on the fewest bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: The House and Senate often work on the same issue simultaneously by introducing companion bills in each chamber. 0 of Capuano’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the Senate. Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.
  • Got the 3rd fewest cosponsors on their bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Capuano’s bills and resolutions had 88 cosponsors in 2017. Securing cosponsors is an important part of getting support for a bill, although having more cosponsors does not always mean a bill will get a vote
  • Got his bills out of committee the 3rd least often compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Most bills and resolutions languish in committee without any action. Capuano introduced 1 bill in 2017 that got past committee and to the floor for consideration.
  • Was 18th most present in votes compared to Serving 10+ Years: Capuano missed 0.7% of votes (5 of 710 votes) in 2017
  • Ranked 95th most liberal compared to All Representatives
  • Powerful Cosponsors: 1 of Capuano’s bills and resolutions in 2017 had a cosponsor who was a chair or ranking member of a committee that the bill was referred to. Getting support from committee leaders on relevant committees is a crucial step in moving legislation forward.
  • Committee Positions: Capuano held a leadership position on 0 committees and 1 subcommittee, as either a chair (majority party) or ranking member (minority party), at the end of the session.
  • Joining Bipartisan Bills: Capuano cosponsored 249 bills and resolutions introduced by other Members of Congress. Cosponsorship shows a willingness to work with others to advance policy goals.
  • Government Transparency: GovTrack looked at whether Capuano supported any of 21 government transparency, accountability, and effectiveness bills in the House that we identified in this session. We gave Capuano 0 points, based on one point for cosponsoring and three points for sponsoring any of these bills.
  • Laws Enacted: Capuano introduced 0 bills that became law, including via incorporation into other measures, in 2017. Keep in mind that it takes a law to repeal a law. Very few bills ever become law.
  • Writing Bipartisan Bills: Capuano tends to gather cosponsors only on one side of the aisle. 6 of Capuano’s 22 bills and resolutions had both a Democratic cosponsor and a Republican cosponsor in 2017.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Welcome Their Second Child

It’s official, Luna is a big sister! Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their new bundle of joy, a baby boy, on Wednesday, May 16.

“Somebody’s herrrrrrre!” Teigen tweeted on Wednesday along with baby bottle emojis.

Her husband retweeted the post and Brielle Biermann was among the first to congratulate the couple, replying, “OMFGGGG!!!!!! Taurus baby!! Congratulations.”

As previously reported, the 32-year-old Lip Sync Battle host enlisted their daughter’s help for the big social media reveal of baby No. 2 in November 2017. In the sweet Instagram video, Teigen asks the tot, “Luna, what’s in here?” as she points to her belly, to which Luna squealed, “BB!” She hilariously captioned the clip: “it’s john’s!”

The Cravings author later revealed that she and the “All of Me” singer, 39, were expecting a boy. Us Weekly caught up with Teigen in March, when she opened up about the possibility of more children — and how she’s in no rush to get her post-baby body back. “I think I do want to have another baby after this and then get hot,” she told Us at the time,” noting that her doting husband loves her pregnancy body.

“I have a husband who truly loves the whole experience,” she gushed to Us. “He holds my belly at night, sings to it, wants to be there for me. I’m really lucky because some men start to look at you like a tool, I’ve heard, so I’ve been scared and don’t let that happen to me! But it hasn’t and it’s really good.”

Teigen and Legend tied the knot in a gorgeous September 2013 wedding in Lake Como, Italy. They welcomed their first child, the aforementioned Luna, in April 2016.

It’s Time for John Kelly to Shape Up or Go

Chip Somodevilla/Getty

Idiot, moron, unhinged. There’s a whole section of the thesaurus for that ways that the President’s closest advisors have reportedly described him. The latest addition to this thread comes from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly who reportedly referred to his boss as an idiot.

Kelly says it’s a lie. But either way, the episode is part of an ongoing series of leaks, from the White House, that raise questions about Kelly’s ability to manage the place. After all, a chief of staff who not only can’t control leaks in general, but can’t even control leaks about himself, doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence.

All of which begs the question: why General Kelly is still around? The answer is, he shouldn’t be, at least not unless he steps up soon.

Talking to Jason Jules about John Simons, Patron Saint of…

Talking to Jason Jules about John Simons, Patron Saint of English Ivy

In an age where everyone buys almost everything off the internet, sometimes from far-flung warehouses located in other countries, it’s easy to forget the important role certain brick-and-mortars played in shaping regional taste. These retailers, who were often small and independent haberdasheries, were the original tastemakers. Fred Seagal, for example, was once thought of as the gateway into the Los Angeles fashion market; Louis Boston introduced many to the comfort of Italian tailoring. In fact, Luciano Barbera got his start in marketing tailored clothing because of a suggestion from Murray Pearlstein, Louis Boston’s late proprietor. The two worked together to develop a line of ready-to-wear Italian suits and sport coats, which was initially aimed at the New England market.  

John Simons is considered by some to be the patron saint of English Ivy for the same reasons. For the last sixty years, he’s been a steadfast evangelist for the same kind of clothes – J. Keydge natural-shouldered jackets, Florsheim Imperial brogues, Bass penny loafers, button-down shirts, and other things Ivy. He introduced the look to English shores in the 1950s and has stuck with it ever since, proving there’s such a thing as classic style. 

More importantly, he’s played an important role in shaping British taste. For almost three generations, mods, suedeheads, and skinheads (a term for a section of working class youths before the name became associated with racists) have gone to John Simons to look street-smart and well-heeled. John Simons was also the one who gave Harrington jackets their name. Originally referred to as golf jackets, Simons remembers the time when he climbed into his shop window to write on the buff-colored card attached to a store display jacket: “The Rodney Harrington Style.” It was reference to how Rodney Harrington in Peyton Place wore the same model. Now the name is everywhere. 

This Monday, Mono Media is releasing a film about John Simons by Jason Jules. Some readers may recognize Jason as the face of Drake’s, but he’s also a vet in the London arts scene, having worked as a club promoter, PR rep, and fashion industry consultant. His film, titled A Modernist, is about a shop he loves, the clothing inside, and the store’s connection to culture. We sat down with Jason to talk about his film, Ivy Style, and other topics. 

image

How did this project start?

I’ve known John’s shop since I was a kid. When it comes to Ivy Style, jazz, and modernism, John was Wikipedia before Wikipedia. Discovering his shop was a real eye opener for me. I was already into beat poetry and jazz at the time, but his shop pulled everything together. It has authenticity; it’s a place I can trust. I know if I go there with my eyes closed, pick up something from a rail in my size, it’ll always be the right thing. There’s not a single questionable item in the store.

Later, when I started making short films, it occurred to me that I should do something on John Simons. I put it off for a while, and then I heard a rumor John passed away. Thankfully, that turned out to be untrue, but the rumor kicked me into gear. What was originally supposed to be a five-minute nod to important influences in my life eventually grew into this hour-long feature on the shop and its clothes, as well the cultural attendants that came with them.

You mentioned trust. When I was a kid, I remember certain stores having an incredible amount of influence. If something was carried there, it was considered good. Do you think that’s still possible with the internet? Stores are so untethered by geography nowadays, people are constantly comparison shopping online. Loyalty seems like it’s at an all-time low.

I do, partly because I think certain stores offer a curational experience. I can walk past an art gallery, for example, and look at the work through the window. But that’s not the same as going inside and walking through the gallery, talking with the curator, and learning more about the pieces. Stores that give you a similar experience are the ones that will flourish. Think of shops such as Supreme or John Simons. Even if you go in there and get nothing but a conversation, you’ll walk out with something. You’re being exposed to a set of inherent values and taste markers that are almost too nuanced to grasp if you purely shop online.  

image
image

John Simons has also historically sat in the middle of some important cultural movements – his influence on mods, skinheads, suedeheads, etc.

John has a deep understanding of clothing, and he loves sharing it with people, regardless of their background. That’s one reason why there was, and still is, such diversity among his customers. He sold to kids who were into reggae and ska, just as he sold to advertising executives. He treated everyone equally.

That wasn’t always true elsewhere. There were some stores in Mayfair or tailors on Savile Row where, if you didn’t fit a certain archetype, you may have been met with a level of resistance or snobbery. John never did that; he welcomed everyone. He was never a mod or skinhead himself, but his clothes appealed to all those people. And he had a knack for putting his store in forward facing areas. At one point, he had a shop in the Soho area of London, just as the place was becoming an advertising hub. There were film companies and advertising agencies up one way, then music venues down the other. Right in the middle was John Simons’ Squire shop, so you got business people and music fans coming into the same store, buying the same clothes.

image
image

What do you think drew mods and skinheads to these clothes?

I think the clothes meant different things to different people. I imagine skinheads and suedeheads were reacting against the hippie movement at the time. There was a sort of neatness about the look that appealed to their working class roots, but the clothes also embodied a certain aspirational element. It was looking a bit more accomplished than what your wage packet might suggest. The early mods, on the other hand, often had good jobs and they liked dressing a certain way. But the appeal was still essentially aspirational – looking a bit outward at the time, as opposed to the more insular mindset of the previous generation of kids just coming out of the war.

That kind of sounds like the story of the ‘Lo Heads.

There are some parallels. I think the thing that makes it different is that John’s shop somewhat tempered what people wore. For example, as a kid, if I went into Ralph Lauren or Harrod’s, I knew I would be followed. It was a given, regardless of what I wore. Whereas if I went to John’s shop, I knew I would be welcomed. So for me, and I’m sure a lot of people, going to alternative sources to buy something wasn’t an attractive option. John shop was always the primary source in that way. That meant you interacted with the shop as more than just a retail outlet.

image

I remember in the ‘80s, I went into John’s shop to buy two Baracuta jackets. I wanted them a size too big, because that was my “look” then, and John told me the fit wasn’t right. I didn’t listen to him at the time because I was young and still finding my way with clothes, but his advice still stuck with me. The service made for a different kind of experience.  

Many luxury companies back then worried about working-class people – often ethnic minorities – wearing their clothes because they feared the association devalued their name. What made John different?

It was just the kind of people who worked in the shop. It was always about the clothes and culture. If someone showed an interest in the clothes and culture, they were eager to share their knowledge. And in many ways, they were also “outsiders.” John is a working class Jewish kid from East London. He has an outsider perspective. Some brands are protectionist, but John is an ambassador. Burberry used to vilify people who wore their check head-to-toe, but now they style their clothes the same way on the runway.  

Or look at what’s happened with Dapper Dan!

Dapper Dan was public enemy number one for Gucci at one point, and now he’s hailed as the patron saint. There’s a new generation of marketing people, creative directors, and designers inside brands such as Ralph Lauren, Burberry, and Gucci that recognize the value of those outsider perspectives. John, on the other hand, has always been aware of this, so his door was always open to everyone.

image
image
image


In his book Ametora, David Marx wrote about how Ivy Style became its own thing in Japan. People wore things because their cultural heroes in Japan were wearing them, not because they were trying to imitate students at Harvard or Yale. Do you feel that happened with Ivy Style in the UK?

I think that a lot of people were into it in a purely contextual and insular way. After the first wave of modernists, the style was increasingly adopted by kids who wanted to emulate a mod look, and not because they were trying to be Italians. They wore those clothes because their mates were doing it. It becomes very peer-centric, very self-referencing in that way.  

For example, I was asked a few years ago how long I’ve been into Ivy. I hadn’t even realized I was into Ivy! I was into button-down shirts and loafers and flat-front trousers. I was into patch pockets and cord jackets. I was into The Graduate and Steve McQueen. I was into Blue Note Records and modern jazz. I liked a certain look that could be defined as Ivy, but for me, it had a different meaning as a kid growing up in London.

Is there still that connection between clothing and culture? The Guardian had an article about how, fifty years ago, you could tell if someone was a mod, punk, hippie, goth, or soulboy from the way they dressed, but that’s harder now since so many people follow the same trends. Are there still youth subcultures that can be identified by the way they dress?   

I think there are, but things move so quickly now, it’s hard to recognize something as peripheral. Like, Palace Skateboards used to be super niche five or six years ago. It was just a group of kids making t-shirts and crazy skateboard videos. Now they’re all over the place, and it’s easy to forget they came out of an incredibly small subculture.

image
image

Or look at Tyler the Creator and his line, Golf Wang. That originally came out of a subculture and the mainstream didn’t mess with it because they considered the line too obscure, too wild, too odd. Now they’re embraced like latter-day rockstars. It’s just that this transition happens so quickly now, it feels like things can become mainstream almost overnight. But the people behind these things were part of a subculture at one point.

Another brand like this is Trapstar. They started as kids who liked A Bathing Ape, but wanted something more local. They were West London kids who threw parties in other people’s shops and made incredibly high-spec’d t-shirts. They’re very authentic to London streetwear culture, but now their product is being sold internationally and sported by mainstream stars such as Rihanna.

Do you think the internet has homogenized or diversified culture?

I think it’s done both. It’s allowed people to find their own voice and realize there’s a community somewhere that will respond to them without any filter. But there’s also a lot of people who want to be part of a homogenous, mainstream culture. The internet allows for both of those things. I also think we all have both these elements in us. I like pop music, but also weird jazz. I watch Netflix, but also obscure films. The internet allows us to explore both these sides of ourselves, so they can happily co-exist.

Heritage clothing was really big five or six years ago, and now it feels like things have moved on. Is it harder to market this type of film now?

There was a point in the heritage movement where people thought there was a genuine shift in consciousness, that people would always buy less, buy better. Heritage turned out to be a trend, but it was an important trend. I’m not sure what happened, but like you say there was a palpable move away from what was essentially a style of clothing built around nostalgia. What remains of the trend, however, is a heightened appreciation of quality and craft, as well as a new kind of language, which we can apply to everything.

image
image

If you look at people who are into sportswear right now, they still talk about how things are made – the weight of the fabric on a t-shirt, how the print is applied. It’s no longer weird to talk about how denim was woven. Even sales assistants in high-street stores want to tell you how a pair of jeans was made.

So, in some ways, it’s become easier to talk about a clothing style that’s been around for more than fifty years. Mainstream journalists don’t look at you funny anymore if you describe your clothes as “Ivy.” At the same time, the social network for this stuff is a little more diffuse, but the people who really appreciate classic clothing will always appreciate it.

Do you think Ivy is ever going to come back in the way it did ten years ago?

I don’t know, but it’s like when the heritage thing was in full swing. Someone asked if I was pissed because all these people were dressing like me. “You’re looking like a trendy!,” they said. I said it’s fine because their interest in Ivy and Americana is a passing thing, for the majority of them, while I’m stuck in this. There will always be enough of us to have a community. This film isn’t for everyone, just as John’s shop isn’t. They’re for people who get it. For me, Ivy never went.

When I look at John Simons’ shop, it strikes me how the same clothes can look different in the UK than they do in the US. You mentioned the diversity among John’s customers, his acceptance and even embracement of others. At the same time, here in the US, Ivy style has lost some of its charm.

Part of that is because some members of the alt-right have picked up Ivy. The other part is how it’s become harder to ignore the uglier associations with the style. My co-writer Pete put it well a few years ago when he said “prep implies privilege and inherited money; some of prep’s charm comes from the unquestioning self confidence bestowed only by independent wealth.” The 1950s boarding schools and universities that originally made Ivy appealing are also the same places that discriminated against minorities around the same period.

Yet, in the UK, these clothes don’t feel like they have that baggage – at least in the way they’re presented at John Simons. They have a different feel, much more modern and even democratic. 

I know what you mean. For me, wearing these clothes, I always felt like I was in the process of subverting something. Even if it was just what it means to be a black kid growing up in London, being the only kid in the classroom wearing a button-down shirt. It was about subverting something that’s not supposed to be for you. But in some places, the look has been recast as the uniform of a social and economic elite. It’s harder to ignore how some people are not just taking advantage of their privilege, but even flaunting it.

Sometimes I think the heritage movement is partly connected to where we are now. I remember looking at a really important blog during that period, and they had a list of American-made products, authentic American brands. There were fifty to a hundred brands on that list, everyone from Pendleton to Woolrich, but none of them were Native American. I remember thinking it was so strange. We’re buying into something inclusive and liberating, but there’s also something nebulous around the edges. When Trump won, my girlfriend said, “you know Jason, part of what you’re into is responsible for this.”

[Laughing] A reader once emailed me saying that! He said my writing on clothing was partly responsible for the rise of the alt-right.

I think in recent years, I’ve become more aware of how my interest in Ivy differs from others. I’m purely into a look, whereas some people are into what a look symbolizes – a sort of sanitized version of 1950s America. When I connect the clothes to culture, I connect them to personal heroes, who were often jazz musicians. Or things happening today, so it’s very contemporary for me. I don’t use these clothes to be wistful about the past.

One of the things that appealed to me is how people such as Muhammad Ali, Sidney Poitier, and Miles Davis wore the style. They looked great in Ivy. Fundamentally the style has always had a racial and socio-economic element, but today – just as how Ali, Poitier, and Davis wore it – what’s most important is how you interpret the clothes and how you wear them.  

Thanks for your time, Jason!

Readers can purchase DVD copies of A Modernist through Mono Media (the film’s official release is Monday, April 23rd, but pre-orders are available now). Jason is also working on a new book about sneakers, which is slated for release sometime next year. He tells us it’s about where sneaker culture is going, as well as how it impacts the rest of culture – social media, identity, luxury, consumerism, etc. You can keep up with John Simons and Jason Jules through Instagram.

Inside Tom Cruise and John Travolta’s Scientology Feud

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

A former Scientologist who allegedly acted as Tom Cruise’s personal security guard has given an intriguing account of the long-rumored rift between Cruise and the religion’s other most high-profile member, John Travolta, as they competed for the favor of Scientology chief David Miscavige.

The church has responded to the allegations by accusing former member Brendan Tighe of making “unsubstantiated claims” and being “an apostate who has a personal axe to grind.”

Tighe is the subject of an interview with Australian magazine New Idea in which he says, “Cruise is the only celeb with a direct line to Miscavige. Travolta didn’t have that. Travolta doesn’t get anything free, no one is giving him absurd gifts like an airplane hangar, custom-made bikes, or over-the-top favors.”

Why Nikki Bella Ended Her 6-Year Relationship With John Cena

Nikki Bella was the one to throw in the towel when it came to her relationship with John Cena, an insider close to the couple reveals to Us Weekly exclusively.

“The things he’s been saying on television and in the press recently hurt Nikki,” the insider tells Us about why Bella, 34, ultimately ended her six-year relationship with Cena, 40. “John is a mess” because of the split, the source continued, and noted that while Bella isn’t happy, “she is not devastated.”

John-Cena-and-Nikki-Bella split

“She’s in a place where she’s just exhausted by some of the things going on in the relationship. John is the love of her life [and] she adores him. They still speak. It’s just very hard. But right now, she has to focus on herself,” the insider continues.

As Us Weekly was first to report, the couple, who got engaged in April 2017, announced their split on Sunday, April 15. “While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the former couple told Us in a statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

The WWE stars’ personalities were also very different, which ultimately pulled them apart. While Cena is shy and introverted, he’s very guarded, the insider notes. “Right now, Nikki has to find Nikki. She’s in a great place with her career, has an amazing family who will be with her through this entire journey, and she needs some time to figure It all out.”

Following the announcement, Cena took to Instagram to post a meme that read, “Worst day ever!” He also shared a telling quote from poet Walt Whitman on Saturday, April 14: “We were together. I forget the rest.”

Bella and Cena’s wedding was set to take place on May 5.

The film's writers already have sequel ideas, though it's not at all certain that Blunt and/or Krasinski will return. Even if they are not involved in a sequel, their futures certainly look bright.

John Oliver Goes Off on Sinclair, Calls News Anchors ‘Members of a Brainwashed Cult’

HBO

Last year, Last Week Tonight aired an eye-opening segment on Sinclair Broadcast Group, a right-wing telecommunications company that currently reaches 40 percent of American households.

Host John Oliver was critical of Sinclair’s extreme conservative bias, including its hiring as chief political analyst former Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn, whose rants air multiple times per week on all of Sinclair’s 193 stations; its policy of mandatory “must-run” segments from brass, such as the bogus claim that the FBI had a “personal vendetta” against Trump’s ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn; and much more. 

“Last year, we told you about Sinclair Broadcast Group—a company which, if their acquisition of Tribune Media is approved, could soon own local stations reaching 72 percent of TV households,” said Oliver on his HBO program Sunday night. “In that story, we talked about Sinclair’s ‘must-runs’—stories that station managers are forced to include in their broadcasts, which often skew noticeably conservative.”

Can You Translate Emoji Faster than John Cena?

In new comedy Blockers, John Cena plays uptight father Mitchell, a man so out of touch with youth culture that he has no idea what the aubergine emoji actually means. And thinks the emoji combo for ‘sex’ means ‘You’re okay with me’.

In the film, his daughter makes a sex pact with two friends to lose their virginity on prom night. Mitchell discovers their plotting, along with fellow parents Lisa (Leslie Mann) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz), whose daughters make up the final two-thirds of the action-seeking threesome.

But he doesn’t find translating what they mean easy – their entire text conversation consists of emoji language. After finally figuring it out, the parents make it their mission to thwart their daughters’ plans.

But how good at translating emoji is John Cena in real life? That’s what we wanted to know. So we put him to the test. We threw a bunch of pictorial phrases at the wrestler and actor, alongside emoji depictions of films and TV shows he’s appeared in. See how he got on – and test yourself at the same time – in the video above.


Blockers-John-Cena-Leslie-Mann-Ike-Barinholtz
Parents Mitchell (John Cena), Lisa (Leslie Mann) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz) discover their daughters’ sex pact.

When Can I See ‘Blockers’?

Blockers hits screens in the UK on March 30 and in the US on April 6. You can read the official synopsis below:

Julie (Kathryn Newton), Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Samantha (Gideon Adlon) are three high school seniors who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. Lisa (Mann), Mitchell (Cena) and Hunter (Barinholtz) are three overprotective parents who flip out when they find out about their daughters’ plans. They soon join forces for a wild and chaotic quest to stop the girls from sealing the deal – no matter what the cost.

Blockers is directed by Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon and also stars Gary Cole, Gina Gershon, Mozart in the Jungle actor Miles Robbins and Riverdale’s Graham Phillips.

John Stamos Hilariously Shares Photo of Himself with a Faux Baby Bump: ‘Can’t Wait for Fatherhood’

John Stamos “can’t wait” to become a father as he shared a funny Instagram photo of himself wearing a fake baby bump.

The Fuller House actor couldn’t help but crack a joke with an old photo of himself on the set of Full House wearing a white T-shirt with the words “Bun in the Oven” written across it.

Stamos, 54, who is expecting his first child with wife Caitlin McHugh, expressed his humor and excitement at his impending fatherhood in a sweet caption, writing, “This is the longest 9 months of my life! #cantwait 4 #fatherhood.”

The couple tied the knot on Feb. 3 in Studio City, California, a source told PEOPLE. The reception was held at Stamos’ home in Beverly Hills.

McHugh wore a white, strapless ballgown with a tulle skirt, while Stamos wore a black tux. A source told PEOPLE, “Caitlyn looked absolutely stunning in a princess dress.”

“They exchanged vows in front of family and close friends. It was a very touching ceremony. There were tears but mostly smiles. John and Caitlyn looked very happy.”

Stamos proposed to McHugh after almost two years of dating in October 2017 at Disneyland — one of McHugh’s favorite places. She is an active Disneybounder, a superfan who dresses up in character at the amusement park.

“The happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” Stamos told PEOPLE exclusively in December. “So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, ‘You better!’”

“She loves Disneyland and , I got on my knee and asked her,” Stamos said. “I pulled the ring out. I don’t know how she did it, but she went to hug me and slipped her finger right in it. When the park closed, we ran around the park in our Disney onesies.”

John Oliver Opens Up About His Gay Bunny Book Outselling ‘Homophobe’ Mike Pence’s

NBC

When John Oliver announced the release of his own parody version of a new children’s book about the Pence family’s pet bunny, Marlon Bundo, even he didn’t think it would reach the top of Amazon’s best-seller list in the first 24 hours. And yet there it sits, ahead of not just Charlotte Pence’s book but also James Comey’s new memoir.

“I have no beef with his bunny,” Oliver told Seth Meyers on a victory lap of sorts Tuesday night. “The beef comes in regarding Michael Pence, who has a history of, let’s say, homophobic views.” He then added, “I just sounded like I was talking around it, but I was actually just saying the word of the thing that he emphatically is: a homophobe.”

When Meyers brought up the overwhelming success of the book, the proceeds of which are going to charities that benefit LGBTQ youth and AIDS research, Oliver revealed that just before the Late Night taping, he had received the latest sales numbers. “I’m sure HBO would find it absolutely hilarious they’re getting no money out of this,” he said.

Charlotte Pence Is Surprisingly Cool With John Oliver Trolling Her Bunny Book

The View

As of Tuesday morning, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is still out-selling Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President by Charlotte Pence on Amazon’s best-seller list. And the vice president’s daughter seems totally chill about it.

Charlotte and her mother Karen Pence were on Fox Business Network with Maria Bartiromo to promote their new book when the host casually brought up the fact that Oliver’s parody book about a gay bunny—revealed on his HBO show Sunday night—had just knocked James Comey’s upcoming memoir off of Amazon’s top spot.

“I mean, I think you know, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery in a way,” Charlotte said. “But also, in all seriousness, his book is contributing to charities that I think we can all get behind. We have two books giving to charities that are about bunnies so I’m all for it really.”

Star Wars’ John Boyega reveals they’ll start shooting Episode IX in July after delay

JOHN Boyega has confirmed that Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming this summer.

It comes after the film was delayed due to the tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, who portrayed General Leia Organa in the space fantasy.

While promoting Pacific Rim: Uprising on The One Show, John Boyega revealed when he’ll be returning as Stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn.

Star Wars: Episode IX will see J.J. Abrams return to the directing chair after launching the trilogy with 2015’s The Force Awakens.

Hosts Angelica Bell and Matt Allwright quizzed John on plot secrets, but he revealed: “I don’t know a thing, but I know I start filming in July. They’re prepping and planning.

“JJ has a script, but I just haven’t read it yet.”

John also opened up about the intense security around the top secret scripts.

He explained: “You have to go to a room where the script is… I can’t lie, sometimes you get to bring it back home.”

Initial scripts for the as-yet-untitled ninth instalment were reported to heavily focus on Carrie Fisher’s iconic role of Leia Organa but her tragic passing in 2016 forced a change in direction.

Last year, a Vanity Fair feature quoted producer Kathleen Kennedy as saying: “She was having a blast… The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, ‘I’d better be at the forefront of IX!’

Because Harrison [Ford] was front and centre on VII, and Mark is front and centre on VIII. She thought IX would be her movie. And it would have been.”
