Brett Young Reveals He Will ‘100 Percent’ Cry at His Upcoming Wedding to Taylor Mills

Brett Young can’t wait for his November wedding to fiancée Taylor Mills.

“She’s the must-have,” the country star, 37, tells PEOPLE Now when asked about what requests he’s made for his upcoming black tie Southern California nuptials.

“We wanted the location to be somewhere where both of our families could make it. When your grandparents get older, you want to make sure that they can be there. We wanted somewhere warm and have our whole family there,” adds Young, who proposed to Mills, 31, in February with a custom ring he designed featuring their initials.

As for the moment that will make him break into tears, the “Mercy” singer reveals he gets emotional whenever he imagines his partner of 10 years walking down the aisle.

“One hundred percent — I cry when I think about it,” Young says. “You’ve heard my music; I’m a mess!”

While the wedding is just weeks away, the couple has been thinking about kids in their future. “The older I get the number gets smaller,” Young tells PEOPLE, admitting he originally wanted four kids. “I think two or three though, God willing.”

Ahead of his wedding, the crooner has been touring with Thomas Rhett on the Life Changes Tour.

“They’re cool and awesome as people and a family as social media projects,” Young says of the musician and his wife Lauren Akins. “He’s been great to learn from not only on stage but off stage — the person that he is and how he runs his camp and the way that trickles down and affects an opener, in my case. He’s a good dude — what you see is what you get.”

Along with traveling on the road and learning from Thomas Rhett, Young reveals another country icon who inspired his love for music.

“I started listening to country in the early ’90s. I heard Tim McGraw‘s ‘Don’t Take the Girl’ and I fell in love with the story,” he recalls. “Then the more I listened to country, the more I learned country music is all about the story. I’ve been a nerdy country music fan ever since.”

Young’s sophomore album, Ticket to L.A., is scheduled for a Dec. 7 release.

Rihanna Has Reportedly Accumulated Over 500 Songs for Her Upcoming Dancehall Album: ‘They’re Only Choosing 10 Records’

A new Rihanna album is on the way!

According to a new report from Rolling Stone, Rih has been hard at work crafting the sound of her upcoming dancehall-inspired album and has amassed over 500 songs in the process.

A Vogue profile first mentioned that Rihanna was working on a dancehall album back in May.

via Rolling Stone:

It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for albums. “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” explains one dancehall producer who asked to remain anonymous. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”

“Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on [Rihanna’s album] and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it,” another source close to the project says. “I think they’ve got eight songs,” he continues, “but her A&R is still asking for records.” “They’re looking for one more [song],” adds a third source with knowledge of the album-making process.

Through a rep, Rihanna declined to comment on the new album.

If Rihanna’s team likes a submission, they will do “some tweaking,” according to a second producer. “I didn’t even get the final [version of the song I turned in],” the producer adds. “I got the semi-final, and then I got the contracts. They ask my opinions, but you wouldn’t expect Rihanna to work with people that don’t do good work – they did some good work on it.”

But another producer who submitted material for the album worries the star is diluting the Caribbean aspects of the music. “Their whole thing was, ‘Yo, we’re gonna make this [album] real dancehall, [real] Caribbean,’” says the producer. “Rihanna is Bajan, so let’s make this a full project like that. To me, it hasn’t been going that way. They’re kind of mixing it up, putting in the pop. If the reggae artists and producers won’t get the chance on the pop album, at least let us survive on the dancehall album. They’re changing up the direction continuously.“

‘The Hate U Give’ Author Angie Thomas Talks About Upcoming Film and Using Love to Combat Hate

Angie Thomas’ debut novel, The Hate U Give, became an instant success, topping The New York Times best-seller list and earning multiple literary awards shortly after its release in February 2017. The book addresses the ills of modern day racism and police brutality as seen through the lens of a 16-year-old black girl named Starr Carter. Throughout the story, Starr grapples with living in two vastly different worlds: the low-income community of color where she grew up and the predominantly white prep school she attends. Her life, however, takes a tragic turn when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her best friend—an unarmed young, black man—at the hands of white police officers.

Although fictional, The Hate U Give depicts the brutal reality of racial profiling and discrimination that people of color face. It’s also reflective of the constant exposure that young people have to the killings of black and brown bodies by police in real-time via social media, like Philando Castile, whose death was live-streamed on Facebook, and Eric Garner, who was recorded on a mobile phone taking his last breaths as police choked him to death.

Censoring Literature

While Thomas has been applauded for tackling controversial themes in The Hate U Give, some critics argue that the social context is divisive and inappropriate for young adults. In fact, police in Charleston, South Carolina, have made a concerted effort to ban the book from a summer reading program for students at Wando High School. According to the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Tri-County Lodge #3, one of the largest police unions in the country, both The Hate U Give and All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely depict police officers in a negative light. FOP lodge president John Blackmon even went as far as to describe the books as “an indoctrination of distrust of police.”

“Whether it be through social media, whether it be through text message, whether it be phone calls, we’ve received an influx of tremendous outrage at the selections by this reading list,” said Blackmon to local news channel News 2. “Freshmen, they’re at the age where their interactions with law enforcement have been very minimal. They’re not driving yet, they haven’t been stopped for speeding, they don’t have these type of interactions.”


He added, “There are other socio-economic topics that are available and they want to focus half of their effort on negativity towards the police? That seems odd to me.”

Written In Love

However, in an interview with Black Enterprise, Thomas said the basis of the book was written out of love and to inspire people to become more compassionate toward each other. “There’s so much love in this. And I hope that they walk away feeling that,” she said at the 2018 Essence Festival.

Thomas also talked about her excitement for the release of the book’s film adaption, which stars Amandla Stenberg (Hunger Games), Regina Hall (Girls Trip), Algee Smith (Detroit), Russell Hornsby, Common, and Issa Rae.

“I think the movie, in a lot of ways, will be cathartic, especially for people who are dealing with this every single day. I think this is an experience that will heal in a lot of ways. And it’s going to open more eyes,” said Thomas. “I think they’re going to walk away feeling even more empowered and inspired. And if, nothing else, I hope they feel seen.”

Thomas also acknowledged that the strong social context may be triggering for some audiences, especially those who have been directly affected by police brutality or are fighting against it. “I’m never going to tell a person to go beyond their own emotional boundaries or what they feel like they can or cannot handle. But I would say, give it a shot, because if nothing else, I hope you walk away from this inspired.” She added, “You have people in the [Black Lives Matter] movement who’ve read the book, who were like ‘I wasn’t sure if I should read this book because I didn’t know if it was going to trigger me.’ But then they read it and they were like, ‘this is what I needed.’”

Ultimately, she says she hopes that both the book and the movie “create more empathy” and makes a lasting impression particularly on young women of color.

“I hope that the young black girls who go into the theater or pick up my book see themselves in it and see just how amazing they are in a world that so often tells them that they’re not enough. I hope that the movie and this book shows them that they are perfect just the way they are.”

MAC Cosmetics Releasing Aaliyah Line for its Upcoming Collection

The beauty business is booming. It seems that every celebrity is getting their own makeup brand, even the deceased. At the request of the fans, MAC Cosmetics is bringing Aaliyah’s brand back to life with a new collection, and they are keeping the name under wraps until the big reveal June 20 online and in stores on June 21.

This comes on the heels of another celeb who has passed on: Latin singer/songwriter Selena. Her collection, which did extremely well for the brand, selling out in the first 24 hours of being released, is now retailing online from third-party platforms like eBay for as much as $ 600. MAC said it was the best-selling celebrity collection in cosmetic history.

Currently, Aaliyah’s line boasts what the brand feels to be her signature lip shade in a bold red; a deep, almost burgundy lip glass; and a bronzing powder that’s filled with shimmer and sparkle. Over 300,000 fans have liked the social media posts since MAC shared the images and news about the release earlier this week so we anticipate that sales will move fast.

The question then remains, is beauty the real business for the female celebrity? Having a makeup line has become a staple moneymaker for artists like Rihanna, personality Kim Kardashian West and her little sister Kylie Jenner. Rihanna’s debut line, Fenty, grossed over $ 72 million in its first month out, and Kim K.’s KKW Beauty netted her $ 14 million upon release, selling out in less than three hours. Jenner didn’t do badly either, grossing over $ 420 million in sales in only 18 months.

WSL Icons Weigh in on Upcoming Founders’ Cup of Surfing


LOS ANGELES, California/USA (Thursday, March 29, 2018) – The Founders’ Cup of Surfing presented by Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold will run May 5 – 6, 2018, making history as the first public event at the world-famous Surf Ranch facility in Lemoore, California and the iconic organizing members of professional surfing, after which the Founders’ Cup is named, are weighing in on the event.

Informally recognized during last season’s test event at the Surf Ranch facility, the WSL is proud to celebrate the following seven individuals as key founders of the sport ahead of this May’s event:

  • Fred Hemmings (HAW): 1968 World Champion, IPS Co-Founder
  • Randy Rarick (HAW): IPS Co-Founder, Triple Crown of Surfing Co-Founder
  • Peter Townend (AUS): 1976 World Champion, Founding Member of APSA
  • Shaun Tomson (ZAF): 1977 World Champion
  • Wayne Bartholomew (AUS): 1978 World Champion, Dream Tour Architect
  • Mark Richards (AUS): Four-Time World Champion (1979 – 1982)
  • Ian Cairns (AUS): Co-Founder APSA, Smirnoff and Duke Winner, ASP Architect

“Surfing is steeped in an impressive amount of history and heritage,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, WSL CEO. “These seven individuals were instrumental to organizing professional surfing from its infancy through to where it is today and we’re very excited to celebrate their ongoing vital relationships with the sport and culture of surfing.”

The Surf Ranch facility, which was revealed online to the public in December 2015, boasts the best man-made wave in history – a 700-yard, high-performance, bi-directional wave featuring barrel sections and maneuver sections.

Primarily existing as a testing facility, the Lemoore site has spent the past two years dialing in the technology under the guidance of 11-time WSL Champion Kelly Slater and feedback from visiting WSL surfers. A private test event last September proved very successful, paving the way for the May Founders’ Cup of Surfing and the Surf Ranch Championship Tour event in September.

“The Surf Ranch is the logical extension of planned surf competitions,” Randy Rarick said. “From a logistical point of view, it allows the WSL to bring the surf to the fans. It is a dream wave that can now be enjoyed by all.”

“I think the Kelly Slater Surf Ranch is groundbreaking, they’ve developed a magical perfect wave and while you can never replace the challenge of nature’s surf, to me it’s just another challenge as a surfer to catch some waves there and try to rip it,” Peter Townend said. “It’s another great surf spot/location and I surely haven’t heard too many say they don’t want the chance to surf it.”

A first for the world’s best surfers, the continental co-ed teams event will see a cross-section of the world’s best surfers battling it out for the public at the world’s most high-performance man-made wave.

“Surfing for your country is really a cool experience and having a team to support is different and engaging for an athlete in an individual sport,” Ian Cairns said. “It also strengthens the bond between the male and female team members…both the men and the women have to win to help the team win. That is such a cool thing and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the teams perform in May.”

“I have always advocated a ‘Davis Cup’ style event and I applaud WSL for combining the worlds’ best men and women in the one event,” Wayne Bartholomew said. “The line-up of superstars is mindblowing!”

“Professional surfing has grown beyond my expectation,” Fred Hemmings said. “I believe the next big step in the evolution of professional surfing will come about because of wave generation technology such as Kelly Slater‘s wave ranch.” 

In addition to interacting with Founders’ Cup attendees for autograph sessions, photo opportunities and Story Sessions for the public, the Founders will be showcasing their timeless surfing ability in a special exhibition session during the event.

Presenting sponsor, Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold, is made with sustainably sourced organic grains and features ingredients free from artificial colors and flavoring. Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold was born from a commitment to innovate using ingredients and inspiration from nature.

‘Riverdale’ EXCLUSIVE: Marisol Nichols Teases Upcoming Hermione Bombshell Moment

In the increasingly dark and sinister town of Riverdale, nothing is ever quite as it seems. But of all the characters who morally walk the line, Hermione Lodge is the most mysterious.

The mother of Veronica (Camila Mendes) appeared to be turning over a new leaf in Season 1, trying to break away from her criminal husband Hiram (Mark Consuelos). But things took a turn once Hiram was released from prison and she suddenly let her dark side out.

FANDOM spoke with Marisol Nichols, who plays Hermione on CW’s breakout hit Riverdale, to find out what’s really going on behind the show’s most mysterious mother.

The actress explained that Hermione had an opportunity to start fresh and morally clean up her life while Hiram was out of the picture, but that it didn’t last because she was already in too deep with her husband’s dealings.

“Unfortunately, she’s not an innocent pawn by a mile. And I truly mean by a mile,” Nichols said, hinting at a big reveal about her character coming up on this week’s episode. “So her past comes back to haunt her and she just has to do what she does to survive and be the ruthless powerhouse woman that she is.”

“She can’t escape from that, I think, even if she wanted to,” she added. “The first season it felt like she did want to and it’s kind of like, sorry, honey, you made your bed.”

When we first met Hermione, it looked like she was falling for Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews (Luke Perry). But unfortunately for fans who shipped the couple, it never really went anywhere before Hiram returned.

Riverdale Hermione Lodge and Fred Andrews

“I would have let the Fred thing go a little bit more,” the actress said. “I think that the higher you are, the harder you fall, so I would have liked to see that pinnacle of them in love together. They work so hard for it and then I would have ripped the rug out from underneath.”

Nichols explained that since Riverdale had a short first season (13 episodes instead of the usual 22), they had to move things along a little faster, which may explain why her character seemed to shift so quickly.

“I was like, ‘Wait, what? Are you sure? Why am I being so mean to Veronica?’” Nichols said about her reaction as an actress when the writers switched things up unexpectedly.  “It was definitely a tough transition because I really loved the relationship that Cammy [Mendes] and I brought that whole first season. I really liked their bond, so it’s sort of just been like ‘Okay, well I’m just going to trust the writers that we’ll get back to that eventually.’”

Riverdale Hermione and Veronica
Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge and Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge

Nichols said they have slowly been rebuilding that mother-daughter relationship by bringing Veronica into the family business — something she says Hermione does in order to protect her child.

“At the end of the day, if the Lodges succeed, Veronica succeeds. That’s her way of justifying it,” she said. “I don’t think it’s the right choice but that’s her way of justifying it. Lodges succeed, Veronica succeeds, everybody’s safe.”

Unfortunately, that means Hermione foregoing her happiness, as she is only with Hiram out of fear.

“I don’t think she’s in love with [Hiram] at all. I think that ship’s sailed,” she said. “To me, there’s a bit of sadness that goes with that and that’s what she got from Fred.”

Riverdale Hermione Lodge and Fred Andrews
Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge and Luke Perry as Fred Andrews

When the relationship fizzled out, Nichols had to work harder to make her character sympathetic to fans who felt she was betraying Fred and Veronica.

“What I tried to do was establish that this is a game and in order to survive in this game with Hiram Lodge, you better be good at it,” she explained. “And Hermione is very good at it. But at the end of the day, it is a game and it’s survival. It’s not necessarily who she is.”

It may not be who she is deep down, but it’s who she has had to become in order to stay safe from her own husband. And Nichols teases that this week’s episode will show us “how strong Hermione actually is.”

“She’s playing the long game, to be honest, because Hiram is there and Hiram is dangerous,” she said. “There’s also a certain way that she’s learned to survive with him around and you’ll see. I’m really excited for the next episode for everyone to see because it really does show that Hermione is not as innocent as she wanted.”

Find out Hermione’s big secret when Riverdale airs this Wednesday at 8 pm on CW.

Eva Marcille is in a great space right now. The America’s Next Top Model winner and proud mother of one is happily engaged to former Atlanta mayoral candidate, Michael Sterling, and is glowingly expecting her second child, first with Sterling.

In a new interview with Essence, Marcille shared that she and the popular attorney have decided to wed in the city where they fell in love.

“We fell in love with each other in Atlanta,” the 33-year-old revealed. “We met in Atlanta and fell in love in Atlanta. My fiance is from Beaumont, Texas, and I’m from Los Angeles so I think it only appropriate for us to actually get married like where we met.”

May 2018 bring you much Joy!!! Happy New Year!!!🍾🎉

A post shared by Eva Marcille (@evamarcille) on

While she’s thrilled to walk down the aisle, the Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star admits she didn’t expect the love of her life to propose so soon.

“I am so excited to like start the planning and preparing the process for my wedding. You know, just the whole bridal shower, the party, the dress. I can say that I didn’t anticipate being engaged right now. It came as a surprise. I thought that he would wait a little bit after having the baby but, hey, like they say, if you like it then put a ring on it, right?”

I said yes!!!! 💍

A post shared by Eva Marcille (@evamarcille) on

Before finding love with Sterling, Marcille dated and had daughter Marley Rae with singer, Kevin McCall.

The “Deuces” artist made headlines when he bragged about still being listed as her partner on Google, a move the model ignored. In fact, she’s made sure to block her ex, both literally and figuratively, from her life.

“We don’t have a relationship,” said Marcille. “He’s blocked on all my social media. I have full custody of my daughter and her dad is Michael Sterling, so he is a blast from the past and a memory.”

Justin Timberlake’s Upcoming Man Of The Woods LP Gets Black Twitter Side-Eye

Justin Timberlake may have earned plenty of goodwill with the Black community by way of his dance moves and well-meaning soul rifts inspired by the likes of the late Michael Jackson and others, although he still has hell to pay. With the announcement of his upcoming fifth studio album Man Of The Woods which features production from Pharrell Williams and Timbaland, hints that Timberlake might be going the country route and Black Twitter came through the epic side-eye treatment via Twitter.

The trailer for Man Of The Woods hit the Internet today (Jan. 2) which showed Timberlake looking down-south rugged with a scruffy beard and traveling through the countryside along with one song that sounds primed for pop and country radio. Although there were flourished of old JT in some of the songs played, the trailer gives off the impression that Timberlake is ready to get down to his Tennessee roots for real.

Black Twitter, always at the ready with the slander, came through with the jokes and commentary and we’ve got some of our fave tweets below and on the following page. To be fair, Skateboard P appears to be giving Timberlake an epic co-sign at the end of the trailer so maybe it’s unfair to count the crooner out the soul food line just yet although that Janet Jackson apology sure would be righteous.

Philip Pullman on His New Trilogy, His Influences and the Upcoming His Dark Materials TV Show

The article contains minor spoilers on the plot of La Belle Sauvage.

It’s been over twenty years since Philip Pullman introduced readers to the universe of His Dark Materials, and now he’s back with the first in a new trilogy entitled The Book of Dust.

At the end of the last book in the first trilogy, The Amber Spyglass, Pullman’s young heroes Lyra and Will have witnessed the death of the heavenly “Authority,” unwittingly staged the second fall of Man and cut a hole in the fabric of the underworld to free untold hordes of the dead to become one with the universe. How do you top that?

The answer is, you don’t. Instead, in La Belle Sauvage, Pullman has shrunk the canvas to present readers with a book that, despite being set over a decade before His Dark Materials, is less a prequel than a companion volume. In it, we meet Malcolm, a curious and lively inkeeper’s son who loves nothing more than boating up and down Oxford’s canals in the vessel that gives this first volume its name. He soon crosses paths with the infant Lyra, and is thrown into an adventure which takes its cues both from Boy’s Own tales of suspense and intrigue, and the fairies and spirits of English folklore.

In a conversation with TIME at his home in Cumnor, Oxfordshire in August, Pullman explained why he’d returned to the universe of His Dark Materials, gave some insight into the characters and themes of the new novel, and dropped some hints about what readers can expect from the second volume in the series, to be entitled The Secret Commonwealth.

TIME: You’ve been talking about the possibility of writing a follow-up to His Dark Materials for over a decade. Why now?

Philip Pullman: I felt there were more stories to tell. I felt that having established a position vis-a-vis organized religion, I was now free to look at other things that were of interest to me. I wanted to know more about Lyra, I wanted to know about other characters I’d seen peripherally, in the distance, and grew to like.

If His Dark Materials was about how innocence turns to experience, what is the theme of this trilogy?

I don’t write books to illustrate a theme but I sometimes find a theme developing as I write them. In this one, it’s the importance of imaginative vision, in William Blake’s terms. The dangers of what he called “single vision” — a narrow, dogmatic point of view that excludes every other angle of vision but what it deems to be true. You see that not just in dogmatic politics and religion, you see it in science, in all kinds of fields. It’s always destructive and it’s always restrictive and it’s always unhelpful. And in this trilogy, that sort of area is going to be what I’m exploring.

But the meaning of a book is never just what the author thinks it is. It’s a great mistake to rely on the author to tell you what the meaning is. We don’t know. The meaning is only what emerges when the book and the reader meet.

The journey from innocence to experience is still at the heart of this book though, with Malcolm’s journey?

Yes, but in a different way. The relationship you have with a six-month-old baby is not a romantic one, but a protective one. And Malcolm is in that relationship with Lyra. He’s immensely seized by the idea of this baby. He’s an only child, he has never even seen a baby before. And he is put in the position of having to protect her. It’s a position of great moral responsibility, a great moral weight. And he’s capable of bearing it.

Is there an element of autobiography in the writing of Malcolm?

I’d like to think so. I’m not sure I’d be as brave as he is. I suppose Malcolm is to a certain extent the boy I was. But then, Lyra is the girl I was. They’re both equally made up characters. I knew Malcolms and I knew Lyras when I was teaching. But yes, there’s an element of me in both of them. I loved writing about Malcolm and Alice, who I became very fond of.

Alice, the temperamental teenager who accompanies Malcolm on his quest, seems quite similar to the Lyra of the earlier books.

Well, we’ll find out more in the second book about her connection with Lyra, which might be a bit of a surprise. As soon as I thought of Alice, I could see how that was going to develop. Some characters arrive at your desk with either an atmosphere about them, or a sense that there is more to them … an already developed hinterland or where they’re going. Mrs Coulter, for example. As soon as I thought of her I thought, yes there she is. Alice was the same.

Did the character of Malcolm spring fully formed too?

Yes. I saw him with his canoe, and he just looked up. I used to be a teacher, for about 12 years, and I was teaching children of his age and Lyra’s age as she was in His Dark Materials and I knew lots of children like that. Immensely interesting, immensely likable and immensely unpredictable. A curious mixture at that age of complete innocence and the beginnings of intellectual maturity and discovery. It’s an extraordinary age.

This novel is set entirely in England, and mostly in Oxfordshire. What is it about Oxford that keeps bringing you back?

It’s a very rich place to write about. There are all kinds of things to write about. There are so many Oxfords and so many atmospheres. You could never get tired of it. Besides, it’s just down the road. I don’t have to go to Heathrow and get on a plane and deal with passports in order to research it.

Do you need to travel a lot to research the places you go to in your novels, like the Arctic?

No, because I make my world up. What I don’t know, I’ll find out in some way or another. And what I can’t find out, I’ll make up. The function of research for a novelist is simply to give you enough stuff so that you can make up something that you need. My test for it is, if I were reading this, would I think it’s genuine? If it looks alright to me, as an average reader, who has read a bit about the subject, I reckon that’ll do.

What about interviews?

No, because people don’t tell me things. It’s not in my nature. I can spend time with someone most agreeably, but they would never tell me anything important about themselves. I haven’t got that receptive, engaging, welcoming air about me. It’s a great gift, but not something that could be faked. I could have made myself interested in people … but it’s a question of whether people feel at ease about you or not, and I don’t have that capacity.

Evidently, that hasn’t impeded your creative spark.

Perhaps it encourages it.

In the new book, you delve into what life is like under the Magisterium, the “theocracy” that rules Britain. I wonder if there were parallels to what you see in the world today that were of particular influence?

Yes, of course. We see in the Middle East and in isolated pockets of western Europe the enormous enthusiasm which that point of view is accepted. Especially by young men who love the idea of an absolute answer to everything, for which they’re willing to die, and to kill. That’s the absolute final pitch of single vision. What the prophet says is what is true, and everything else is false. That cast of mind has not very often acquired political power, but when it does it’s absolutely murderous.

In many ways it seems as much like Soviet Russia, as historical theocracies like the Spanish Inquisition.

Well, Soviet Russia was, in all respects except one, a theocracy. When I was accused of promoting atheism and doing down the church and so on, I used to make this point. The Soviet regime had a holy book, by Marx. It had a priesthood, the Communist Party. It had even holy relics, the corpses of Lenin and Stalin in Red Square. It had a whole system of secret denunciation, just as they did in Venice under the Spanish Inquisition. And this is very important: they had a teleological world view. The church was doing all this because it was helping re-establish Christ’s rule. In Soviet Russia, they were working towards the dictatorship of the proletariat. The parallels are extraordinary and multiple. It was in effect a theocracy. The fact they were atheist made no difference at all. So, my antipathy to organized religion is an antipathy to theocracy and an antipathy to people who think they have the answer getting their hands on the levers of power.

The book changes direction in the second half, as a huge and mysterious flood rises. What inspired that?

Well, the flood is a kind of metaphor of course. Floods are things that carry you away. Floods are also things that uncover and bring to the surface things that have been hidden, and so on. So all those things are involved. But one of the origins of this story, I’m certain, was from my childhood in Australia. In 1956, the River Murray flooded in Victoria and also South Australia. We were living in Adelaide, as my stepfather was in the RAF. This flood came along, and I remember driving out to somewhere in the country from where we could see the flood. It was astonishing. It was a mass, immense, as wide as the sea, of grey water, whipped up by a cold wind, flowing inexorably from there to there. The power of it. It was an impression that never left me. And I always wanted to write about a flood. So I made my own flood here in Oxfordshire. And of course it’s a metaphor. It’s more than a flood. It’s a sweeping away of all sorts of things.

Up to that point the novel has been quite realistic, but the flood brings us into the fantasy world that one of the Gyptians in the novel calls “The Secret Commonwealth.” What is that?

Robert Kirk wrote this book in the 1680s, it’s his term for the world of fairies, gnomes, sprites … the world of spirits basically. Which, for him, as a clergyman was very real. He was also writing from the point of view of a culture in Scotland and in Ireland where the spirit world is very real. I’m fascinated by that world, which is the complete opposite of the world that science tells us about. This is not in any sense an anti-science thing, but in William Blake’s terms I’m a proponent of two-fold, three-fold and four-fold vision and not single vision.

Some writers about science use sentences like x equals nothing but y. Love is nothing more than the excitation of neurons in the brain, something like that. I would much rather say, love is the excitation of neurons in the brain, among other things. And I think that would be Blake’s attitude as well. That it can be all of those things. And that we’re not truly seeing it unless we see all of those things. That’s a lesson which Lyra and Malcolm will have to learn.

The first book of the original trilogy told a complete story, somewhat. At the end of this book, there are many things left unresolved and explained.

That was a different kind of book, with a more straightforward story. Lyra has lost something, [her friend] Roger has disappeared, she’s determined to find him. This is a different kind of mystery, a different kind of story. Various things are set in train in this book which will develop in the next one and the third.

If things are unexplained, it’s because I haven’t explained them to myself. There are things that it would be impolite to enquire into. For example, people have occasionally asked me how daemons are born. I’ve never sought to go into the gynecology of daemons and I think it would be rather impolite. People can imagine that for themselves.

What can you tell us about the rest of the trilogy?

In the next book, which is going to be called The Secret Commonwealth, we are fully in the realms of experience. It will be 20 years later, Lyra is going to be an undergraduate and her own woman. And completely unlike in this one, and completely unlike the Lyra of His Dark Materials, she’s going to have the beginnings of an adult’s preoccupations. There will be a lot of trouble.

The earlier trilogy was released at a time when social conservatism was in the ascendance, which I think feeds into the absolutism that you’re talking about. Do you feel like that has changed now in the U.S.?

What we were seeing then was the influence of the evangelical Republicanism on the Republican Party in particular. They sold their soul to this side of influence and effectively could do nothing to prevent Donald Trump when he came along. Because he seemed to be saying the things they wanted to hear, about cutting taxes and preventing immigration and all these things… but they didn’t see what an unguided missile he was going to be.

Back then, you were accused of peddling “atheism for kids.” Do you expect more controversy from this book?

No, this is a different kind of book.

Do you still receive letters from people telling you you’re going to hell?

No … yet I haven’t gone away. Clearly, no evident evil has sprouted from [the books’] presence in the world for 20 years. There’s nothing they can point to and say this man ought to be burned at the stake.

It feels like that religious absolutism has, to some extent, filtered into politics.

Yes, you can see it in Brexit. Once we throw off the chains of Europe, we can pay 350 million pounds a week to the National Health Service! Absolute bullsh-t of course. But they can say it, because they know the answer. Or because they pretend to know the answer.

Do you think the storyteller has a responsibility to reflect that in their writing?

It’s something I’ve thought quite a lot about. We are citizens too. So we have an obligation to do as citizens should do, which is to be honest where we can. To denounce tyranny and lies where we can. We have those responsibilities which are borne by everyone. So yeah, we do have that sort of responsibility. We have other responsibilities as well, of providing for the family. Of looking after the language — which is our tool, our medium. Our overriding responsibility is our responsibility to the story.

Is there also a responsibility to breed curiosity? It feels like an absence of curiosity is what makes you susceptible to demagoguery.

Absolutely. Curiosity is a virtue. The traditional Christian virtues of temperance, justice, fortitude, I agree with all of them. I’ve nothing to disagree with on Christian virtues except one, which is faith. I would rather substitute curiosity. Intellectual curiosity is one of the strongest virtues we have.

His Dark Materials is going to be a television show, on the BBC. You seem to have a mixed track record when it comes to adaptations.

I’ve been through all sorts of adaptations, some of them more successful than others. It’s been a radio play. It’s been a theatrical play, at the National Theater. It’s been a Hollywood movie. It’s had all kinds of embodiments.

The thing about a movie is that you’ve got to distill 12-13 hours of story into 120 minutes, and of course you can’t do it because you have to leave things out. Even a very faithful adaptation like Lord of the Rings left an enormous lot out, because you have to. The great advantage of the new world of long form television is that you can put much more in. So you can allow the time for a story to develop. So I’m hoping that will be the case for this adaptation.

Are you hoping for something along the lines of Game of Thrones?

I haven’t watched it. Not really my sort of thing. I don’t watch or read very much fantasy. I never really have. I read Lord of the Rings when I was an undergraduate, but I was very callow and easily impressed. Far less impressed by it now.

Martin famously struggles with finishing his work. Was the process of writing this burdensome? I know you declined to cut your hair until you were finished…

It was superstition. I made a stupid promise to myself, or a bargain with the muse or something. If I don’t cut my hair, this book will be all right won’t it? So I grew my ponytail which I still have in a drawer somewhere, in a Ziploc bag. I’m going to give it to the Bodleian Library. That was my personal superstition. I don’t know if it makes a difference or not.

Upcoming WSL Big Wave Tour Northern Hemisphere Season Officially Opens

LOS ANGELES, California/USA (Sunday, October 15, 2017) – The Northern Hemisphere portion of the World Surf League (WSL) Big Wave Tour (BWT) officially opens today and will run through February 28, 2018. The world’s best big wave surfers will now prepare to take on three of the most challenging big wave breaks on the planet — Nazaré in Portugal, Pe’ahi in Hawaii, and Mavericks in California.

Starting today, the highly-anticipated winter season of the Big Wave Tour will have the opportunity to run the Nazaré Challenge in Portugal and Pe’ahi Challenge in Maui, Hawaii. The start date for the competition window for the Mavericks event — along with a traditional opening ceremony — will be set shortly following the coordination with the array of governmental agencies involved with the production of the event. The WSL’s acquisition of the permit for the contest was finalized last week and preparations for the first Mavericks Challenge are now moving forward as swiftly as possible.

“We are excited to get the Big Wave Tour back underway with the winter season,” said Mike Parsons, WSL BWT Commissioner. “We have the window for Nazaré and Pe’ahi opening today and are working diligently with all agencies to finalize details for Mavericks. We appreciate the ongoing support from the local community, and we anticipate a great season and epic conditions for the world’s best big wave surfers.”

The Northern Hemisphere season will welcome back the Women’s Pe’ahi Challenge for its second year. A decorated lineup of the leading big wave surfers has been invited to compete at the famed break in Haiku, Maui, Hawaii. Last year’s inaugural event saw Paige Alms (HAW)claim the historic victory. This year’s event will feature six women battling in a one-off Final for the prestigious win.

The world’s best female big wave surfers will also have the opportunity to compete at Mavericks this upcoming season. The WSL Commissioner’s Office will work with a committee made up of Mavericks surfing icons to select six of the best female big wave surfers. The committee will consider performance results from the 2016 WSL Big Wave Awards, experience surfing at Mavericks, and overall big wave experience at all big wave locations around the world.

The men’s division for the Northern Hemisphere events will consist of a 24-man field, comprised of the Top 10 finishers of the 2016/2017 BWT season, 6 event wildcards, 3 BWT wildcards, 1 injury wildcard, and the Top 4 Surfline Overall Performance of the Year Award recipients. The 6 event wildcards for the Mavericks Challenge will be selected by a committee made up of Mavericks legends and experts.

Earlier this year, the 2017/2018 Big Wave Tour completed its first event of the season, the Puerto Escondido Challenge in Mexico, where Kai Lenny (HAW) claimed an exciting victory. Lenny leads the men’s BWT rankings with Jamie Mitchell (AUS) in second place, Tom Lowe (GBR) in third and Billy Kemper (HAW) in fourth. Mitchell, the 2016 and inaugural Nazaré Challenge winner, will look to defend his event title in Portugal. Kemper has dominated the Pe’ahi Challenge since its introduction to the WSL Big Wave Tour and will look for his third-consecutive win at Jaws.

WSL Big Wave Tour officials will monitor swell producing storms for the next four-and-a-half months and watch for the conditions that will produce waves in the 30-to-60-foot range. Once the call is made, competitors will have 72 hours notice to be ready to compete.

2017/18 BWT Men’s Nazaré Challenge:
Grant Baker, Pedro Calado, Greg Long, Jamie Mitchell, Billy Kemper, Nic Lamb, Will Skudin, João De Macedo, Cristian Merello, Kai Lenny, Makuakai Rothman, Lucas Chianca, Francisco Porcella, Trevor Sven Carlson, Tom Lowe, Garrett McNamara, Alex Botelho, Tom Butler, Andrew Cotton, Antonio Silva, Hugo Vau, Nic Von Rupp

Roger Ailes Denies Megyn Kelly’s Sexual Harassment Allegations Detailed in Her Upcoming Memoir

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes is denying the sexual harassment allegations Megyn Kelly made about him in her upcoming memoir.

On Nov. 4, a chapter from the 45-year-old Fox News anchor’s upcoming memoir, Settle for More, leaked, in which Kelly said Ailes’ made inappropriate remarks about her clothing and suggested he would help advance her career “in exchange for sexual favors.”

Kelly claims in the chapter (first released by Radar Online) that after months of harassment, the 76-year-old “crossed a new line” in January 2006 when he grabbed her and repeatedly tried to kiss her. Upon shoving him away, the journalist alleges Ailes asked her the “ominous question” of “When is your contract up?” before trying to kiss her for a third time. Kelly says she never succumbed to any of his advances that she claims stopped after six months once she reported Ailes’ behavior to her supervisor.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Ailes is denying the allegations that Kelly details in her book.

“I categorically deny the allegations Megyn Kelly makes about me. I worked tirelessly to promote and advance her career, as Megyn herself admitted to Charlie Rose. Watch that interview and then decide for yourself,” Ailes said in a statement provided to PEOPLE by his attorney, Susan Estrich. “My attorneys have restricted me from commenting further — so suffice it to say that no good deed goes unpunished.”

After the chapter leaked, Estrich told PEOPLE in a statement: “Mr. Ailes denies her allegations of sexual harassment or misconduct of any kind.” The statement also referred back to Kelly’s words about Ailes on Charlie Rose: “I really care about Roger. And he has been nothing but good to me. And he’s been very loyal. And he’s had my back. And he’s looked out for me.”

The Kelly File airs weekdays (9 p.m. ET) on Fox News Channel.
