Tom Hiddleston sings ‘Move It On Over’ in first clip from ‘I Saw the Light’: meh?

Just wait. In another month or two, we’ll have reached Peak Dragonfly and we’ll be sick of him. These days, though, we’re still in a Hiddlesdrought where anything Tom Hiddleston does or says becomes major news (for Dragonflies). Tom is about to begin promotional work in Toronto, which is where I Saw the Light and High Rise will premiere. Ahead of those big premieres, they’ve finally gotten around to releasing one little clip from ISTL. BEHOLD, Lord Dragonfly singing with a twang:

Are you into this? I’ll include the original Hank Williams song below. I think Tom is trying his best. While my first reaction was “WTF?” to his singing voice, now that I’ve listened to it back-to-back with the original Williams recording, I don’t think it’s that bad at all. Now I’m mostly just wondering why it seemed like Tom was looking directing into the camera? Incidentally, we’re also getting our first listen at Elizabeth Olsen’s twang. She doesn’t sound too bad. This clip is set in 1947, just before Williams “transitioned to life at home with Audrey Mae” (played by Olsen).

James Blake got some apologies from Mayor DeBlasio & Bill Bratton

wenn22820659

As we covered yesterday, former tennis pro James Blake was assaulted by several white NYPD officers on Wednesday in Manhattan. Blake is in NYC for the US Open, to do some promotional work and to watch the games. As he was leaving his Manhattan hotel Wednesday afternoon, a white undercover cop jumped him. Blake was thrown to the ground and scuffed up – go here to read his account of the incident.

Eventually, he was released because (surprise surpise), the cops had tackled the wrong guy. They were looking for a totally different black guy… who also happened to be innocent of the credit card fraud scheme that the NYPD was investigating. TMZ got a photo of the other guy, and yes, he does look sort of like James Blake. But a “passing resemblance” to a guy being investigated for a non-violent financial fraud crime is still no reason for ANYONE to be violently taken down on the street by no fewer than six police officers.

For what it’s worth, it seems like there was video of the incident and the video seems to prove Blake’s side of the story. New York City mayor Bill DeBlasio and NYPD police commissioner Bill Bratton have now offered public apologies to Blake, and they claim that they’ve been trying to reach him on his cell phone to apologize personally. The NYT did a detailed story about everything that’s gone down since Wednesday’s assault – some highlights:

Mayor Bill de Blasio: “I want to talk to him because I want to apologize to him on behalf of the City of New York. This shouldn’t have happened and he shouldn’t have been treated that way.”

Commissioner Bratton: He said he tried to contact Blake “to extend my apologies for the incident which he found himself involved in yesterday.”

What happened to the cop who took down Blake? “The undercover detective who detained Mr. Blake has been stripped of his gun and badge and placed on desk duty, a tacit acknowledgment that video of the arrest raised serious questions about his actions. Mr. Bratton, speaking at a news conference on Thursday, said he had concerns about “the inappropriateness of the amount of force that was used during the arrest.” An initial review of video evidence of the arrest, he said, led him to believe that it may have been excessive.”

Oh, and the cops didn’t even report the incident: “Mr. Bratton said the team of six undercover detectives involved in detaining Mr. Blake — all of whom were white — failed to report the incident, a breach of department practices.”

A witness, a newspaper vendor, says: “They were real aggressive, like he robbed a bank. They were shoving him around.” The witness said he saw Mr. Blake, his hands cuffed behind his back, being handled aggressively by a half-dozen undercover officers. The officers shoved Mr. Blake face first into a large, mirrored building support beam near the Grand Hyatt, Mr. Sanders recalled. With his head wrenched to the side, Mr. Blake tried to talk. “He told them, ‘I have my U.S. Open badge in my pocket.’”

[From The NY Times]

Bratton also said at the press conference that “I don’t believe at all that race was a factor” in the mistaken detainment of Blake. In Blake’s initial interview with the NYDN, he said that he believed race was a factor, but he simply stated it as his opinion, his reading of the situation. While I think a mistaken-identity arrest/detainment could happen to anyone of any race, I think the fact that the takedown was so violent shows that there was a racial factor at play.

Blake also spoke to Good Morning America on Thursday. He says that his wife – a publicist – told him he should go public about the incident. He is so even-tempered here. I would be full of righteous rage.

Taylor Swift & her squad mean girl’d Ariana Grande & Miley Cyrus post-VMAs

FFN_MTV_VMAS_ERFF_083115_51837593

Do I think Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood/Mean Girl squad is petty and ridiculous? Of course. But… I would still love to know what really goes down in that group. Like, I’m fascinated by the group dynamics. I’m sure that Tay-Tay is the alpha, of course, just as I’m sure that Selena Gomez is the drama queen still obsessing over her loser ex-boyfriend (Biebz). Karlie is The Cool Girl, right? She’s centered, she doesn’t need anyone’s approval and even Swifty is sort of in awe of Karlie, but Karlie isn’t looking to dethrone Swifty as the alpha. Anyway, Radar has a gossipy piece about what went down with Taylor and her squad after the VMAs. First, Taylor took her girls out to a Republic Records party, then they all went to Taylor’s house. I want to believe all of the following is true:

Taylor Swift and her pals first attended a Republic Records party at the swanky West Hollywood restaurant Ysabel, which featured an A-list guest list of attendees including Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Swift paid the huge tab for her pals’ hair, makeup, stylists and transportation, our eyewitness said.

Gomez had a boozy evening — “She started to get pretty f***ed up,” our eyewitness said — downing four vodka sodas at Ysabel, where she “was flirting big time with Nick Jonas.”

RadarOnline.com’s eyewitness said that Grande and her brother Frankie could not get close to Swift, who “made it clear to security not to let them near…At first, I thought it was just Frankie, but it was crystal clear [Swift] wanted nothing to do with either of them,” our eyewitness said, noting that Grande “gave up” trying to approach “after a few minutes.”

Empire beauty Serayah McNeil tested Swift’s patience as she spent too much time taking selfies and Snapchats at the affair, leading Swift to ask her to put the phone away. It “was fine at first,” our source said, but eventually Swift got “super-annoyed” with her pal’s hijinks.

At a get-together at Swift’s house afterwards, according to our eyewitness, everyone changed into sweats and Swift Facetimed her beau Calvin Harris for a romantic exchange with many “I love you’s” going both ways. The kickback was well-catered with sushi, vodka and fireball shots, which Swift’s inner circle all indulged in, according to our eyewitness. Swift sipped on Ketel One. There, Cyrus’ racy act at the VMAs was the talk of the bash, with Gomez extremely critical of her one-time pal. Gomez said, according to our eyewitness, “I can’t believe we used to be friends … I should’ve reached out that night she cut her hair and posted the pic on Twitter.”

Swift and Gomez thought that Cyrus’ VMAs antics — from smoking marijuana to flashing her nipple — were obnoxious and annoying, our eyewitness said. Swift and Gomez didn’t throw too much artistic respect toward Cyrus, the eyewitness said, as they were “in stitches, doubled over from laughing” after hearing the first song off Miley’s surprise album Dead Petz.

Michelle & Jim-Bob Duggar are ‘all hunkered down over here’, ‘it’s just a mess’

duggar1

Shortly after Gawker published their exclusive on Josh Duggar’s two Ashley Madison accounts, Gawker also did an interesting follow-up in which they wondered aloud if Josh had also been using a secret OKCupid account. While the profile photo was not a photo of Josh, everything else seemed to fit, including the “Joesmithsonnwa” handle, which Josh also used for his Ashley Madison account. Funny story: about twelve hours after Gawker published that OKCupid story, that profile was suddenly deleted. Interesting, eh?

Hilariously (or not so much, depending on your level of schadenfreude), it’s looking more and more like Josh also had a secret Facebook account too – the email account Josh used for his Ashley Madison account is also being used for a Facebook profile for “Joe Smithson” who lives in Arkansas. Again, the profile photo is not of Josh (the photo is of a Goldman Sachs executive’s son). But it’s probably Josh. And guess who he’s friended? Oh, just 32 people, mostly young women of the stripper and “lingerie model” variety.

So, yes, this whole thing has gotten messy to the point where there is no coming back. Even the Duggars know there’s no coming back. In the initial reporting of just the Ashley Madison accounts, a source told People Magazine: “It was pretty improbable that there were going to be any specials on any of the Duggars anyway. But now, with this, there’s virtually no chance. It’s basically just over now.” Then after Josh’s admissions, more sources spoke to People about how Jim-Bob and Michelle are handling the news that their first-born child is a lying, cheating, child-molesting adulterer.

Josh Duggar had already been living in relative seclusion with his family before his latest scandal imploded his world even further. Privately, a Duggar family insider tells PEOPLE: “We’re all hunkered down over here. It’s just a mess, it’s a whole mess. We don’t even know what the truth is anymore. It’s insane.”

A second source with ties to the family says the cheating scandal is a devastating blow to the Duggars’ firstborn, who resigned from his post at a right-wing Christian lobbying group in May.

“I would assume he feels like his life is ruined,” says the source. “It will be such a steep and practically impossible climb to come back from this.”

In this week’s PEOPLE cover story, a source who worked closely with the family says that in the wake of the molestation scandal, Jim Bob and Michelle recognized that anytime they were seen publicly with Josh, “a story gets made out of it that rehashes the whole mess. … Maintaining some distance is as much for his own good as it is for theirs.”

Now, with Josh’s confession to his “own personal failings,” the source with ties to the family says, “It’s like he’s a completely different person from who they thought he was. They’re still trying to reconcile all that they know is good about Josh, whom they will always love and adore, with what they’ve learned now.”

[From People]

I’ve heard stories about Michelle Duggar being in a bubble of right-wing, cult-like hyper-delusion and how she just lets Jim-Bob’s behavior dictate her own. But… my impression of Michelle during their horrible Fox News interview was that she’s wily. She’s deadly when she’s been coached. My guess is that somewhere deep inside, Jim-Bob and Michelle both realize that something is really wrong with Josh, but I don’t know if they’ll realize that the crazy cult-mentality and sheltered existence they’ve given their family hasn’t helped ANY of the children.

In a new People Magazine story (new this morning), People Mag’s Duggar-tastic sources say that Jim-Bob and Michelle are “absolutely stunned” and “this wasn’t something they ever imagined was possible” because, and I sh-t you not, “They so strictly limit their exposure to these sorts of outside influences – from websites to even the sort of television they watch, if they turn on the TV at all – that they were absolutely baffled by how this could have been possible.” It’s like they don’t even realize that their hyper-repressed household is WHY Josh is so screwed up. But no worries, y’all, because sources maintain that the Duggars are “feeling more devout than ever” and “their faith is in no way rocked by this.” Your faith SHOULD be rocked by this. This horrible hypocrisy taken with your son’s repeated and escalated incidents of molestation SHOULD cause you to take a moment, rethink your child-rearing and adjust.

Khloe Kardashian Shows off Her ‘Revenge Body’

Khloe1

On food:

“I am in love with food. And being of Armenian descent, we don’t make small dinners. I love to cook and have my wine, but I’m more aware now… but I’m a foodie. If I could control what I eat, I would have the best body ever. But because I have no self-control, and I don’t really care to have it, I have to work harder. I would rather work out harder and eat what I want, in moderation. I’m not going to eat a whole cake, but last night I had pizza. If I want a pizza, I’m gonna have it. So I had pizza last night and it made me very happy.”

On learning how to love working out:

“The first 45 days you’re like, ‘F–k this s–t.’ You’re exhausted, you’re sore, and I actually felt fatter because I was swollen. If you keep going, you’re eventually like, ‘Wow, is that an indentation on my arm?’ Yeah, it’s a revenge body. But it’s just as much for all my critics who called me ‘the fat one’ for my entire existence.”

On being jealous of Kendall and Kylie:

“I’m not going to put on a bikini, sit on the floor with my legs crossed, and eat a burger. When I see my little sisters do that, I’m like, ‘Ugh, these bitches.’ I know they’re not doing it on purpose. This is how they really eat and it’s so annoying.”

Did Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, have a secret Ashley Madison account?

View image | gettyimages.com

Joe Biden’s younger son from his first marriage, Hunter Biden, has gotten caught up in the Ashley Madison Hack. Maybe. Breitbart.com broke the story and they have the screenshots to prove it – go here to see. While the email account is connected to someone going by Robert Hunter Biden (Hunter’s full name), the birthday is off by a decade. When Brietbart and other outlets asked Hunter for a comment, he said this was the first time he’s ever heard of it. He denied it, flat-out:

Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden says the profile that uses his email address on the hacked “cheating” website Ashley Madison does not belong to him.

“I am certain that the account in question is not mine,” Hunter Biden said in a statement provided to ABC News. “This account was clearly set up by someone else without my knowledge.”

Hunter Biden, 45, says he first learned about the account registered to his name “from the media” and that he no longer uses the email address that was linked to the profile after he became aware that the address may have been compromised.

“This is, unfortunately, not the first time that someone has used my name and identity to try to discredit me,” the married father of three said in the statement. “From my understanding through press accounts, it is very easy to set up an account without someone’s knowledge as there is no requirement that an email address be verified and I am certain that is what happened in this case,” the vice president’s son continued.

A screenshot of the account profile taken by Breitbart shows that whoever created the profile under Biden’s name got a key detail wrong: Biden’s birthday.

His birth date listed on the account is off by 10 years. The profile lists Biden’s birth date as Feb. 4, 1980, but his actual birth date is Feb. 4, 1970.

Whoopi Goldberg on Bill Cosby: ‘He has not been taken to jail. So, back off me!’

Earlier this week, ten year-old testimony from Bill Cosby was released in which he admitted drugging women with Quaaludes so he could sexually assault them. Deadline did some digging and came up with some related news — CAA dumped him as a client last fall when the scandal broke. An agency official told Deadline, “We do not represent him at this time.” Sure enough, Cosby’s name has disappeared from CAA’s public speakers roster. He still has a publicist and lawyers, so he’s not alone, but Cosby will never find another reputable agent again.

Whoopi Goldberg is steadfast in her support of Cosby. We talked yesterday about her claim that there was no real proof that Cosby raped the 40+ women who’ve come forward. Whoopi’s statements on rape are always the worst. Long ago, she defended Roman Polanski. Now Whoopi doesn’t even believe that Cosby’s own admission points to rape. Whoopi ranted again yesterday. She still believes in Cosby’s innocence, and she feels personally persecuted too:

Whoopi feels attacked: “People have been coming after me and saying they’re going to snatch my family. It’s like being Frankenstein, people coming after you with the fire and they’re going to burn you. Not any of you threatening me or telling me you’re coming after me because you don’t like what I said is going to change the fact that no one has convicted him, he has not been arrested. The bottom line is, that’s the law. Innocent until proven guilty.”

She doesn’t believe the victims: “We all have a very important role to play when it comes to abuse and rape. If it’s true the person has to be taken to nth degree of the world and punished. No one here thinks rape is good. No one here thinks rapists are fun. So, don’t come after me like that, ’cause I’m sick of this bull. Here’s the bottom line, for me: It’s my opinion. And the American courts agree with me, because still he has not been taken to jail or trial on anything. So, back off me!”

Most people can’t believe that Whoopi is still defending Cosby and (pretty much) saying the victims are making things up. Cosby victim Janice Dickinson is very disappointed in Whoopi: “What is wrong with you, Whoopi Goldberg? What more does it take? You need to be fired. How dare you sit there on The View? You need to be fired, you stupid woman. That is ridiculous.” Also, both Whoopi and Camille Cosby need to stop acting like Cosby is the victim.

One more thing. The newly revealed testimony could open the door for one known accuser, Chloe Gains, to file criminal charges before the statute of limitation expires. Gains accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in 2008 at the Playboy Mansion.
