The Welsh actress revealed that she is supporting England – who won penalties against Colombia on Tuesday Catherine Zeta-Jones sparked a bit of friendly rivalry between her fans on social media on Tuesday ahead of the England vs Colombia game. The Welsh actress had revealed that she was supporting England in the World Cup, and shared a photo of Harry Kane on the pitch, writing next to it: "Supporting England today. Counting on my favourite player Mr Kane!! World cup fever for me!" "You must be the only Welsh person supporting England.

What the heck do we call this one? British visual artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s film portrait of Australian rocker Nick Cave isn’t really a documentary; it’s too staged and composed, and too crazy, for that. It’s certainly not a concert movie; there’s surprisingly little music in it. It’s not fiction, either; not really. And yet I’m also hesitant to call it nonfiction — the obvious choice – because so much of it feels like a projection of Cave’s own rock-star persona. We’re not getting the real Nick Cave in this movie, but nobody’s really pretending we are. The ostensible idea behind the film — to chronicle Cave’s 20,000th day on this Earth as and his band the Bad Seeds goes about preparing their latest album Push the Sky Away — is only a loose skeleton around which Forsyth and Pollard create various scenarios that allow Cave to talk about his past. How much of that is a variation on the past that Cave wants us to see? All of it, probably, but no matter: This is a film that opens with a carefully lit, very composed shot of Nick Cave waking up in bed next to his wife, looking pretty much exactly like Nick Cave (huge head of black hair slicked back, eternal grimace on his face, etc.). It clearly presents itself as illusion right from the get-go. But it’s not without moments of touching forthrightness. Intercut amid various bits of rehearsal and recording and riffing are scenes of Cave driving his Jaguar around Brighton and imagining various conversations with figures from his career. Their discussions are candid and fascinating: Actor Ray Winstone, who appeared in the Cave-scripted Western The Proposition , shows up to talk about the nature of performance and of becoming someone else; Blixa Bargeld, a longtime member of the Bad Seeds who left abruptly in 2003, finally explains his departure; and Kylie Minogue, whose duet “Where the Wild Roses Grow” gave Cave one of his biggest hits, has an intimate chat about her fears of loneliness.

If you’re wondering how Saweetie keeps up her torrent of new material coming out this spring, it might have something to do with her ability to grow 50 feet tall and run around the circumference of the earth at will. We’re not exactly sure how that leads to being a prolific artist, but it definitely would be a huge self-esteem boost, which is exactly what her latest track and music video provide. On Thursday evening, the Bay area rapper released “Fast (Motion),” which features Saweetie dominating at soccer, diving out of a plane, sampling Ciara’s “Got Me Good,” and both winning and cheerleading at a Super Bowl seemingly targeted by Bane. Doesn’t that guy know who he’s dealing with?! Saweetie’s new single arrives three weeks after she released Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 , which featured collaborations with Drakeo the Ruler, Lourdiz, Loui, Kendra Jae, and Bbyafricka. “Fast (Motion)” is presumably off her upcoming debut album, Pretty Bitch Music , but you’ll have to wait until sometime this summer to get the EP. Until then, sit back, relax, and enjoy a gigantic 15-foot-hot dog. It’ll probably take you a few months to finish it anyway. … [Read more...] about Saweetie Runs (Around) the World In Her New ‘Fast (Motion)’ Music Video
Photo: GC Images Disney Parks will lay off 28,000 employees, announced Disney Parks chairman Josh D’Amaro, due to the impact of COVID-19 on the reopening of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. According to D’Amaro, 67% of the affected employees are part-time. Non-working Disney Parks employees have been on furlough since April , with both Disneyland and Walt Disney World having closed in March . While Walt Disney World in Florida reopened back in July , albeit with reduced hours of operation , Disneyland in California has remained closed since March. D’Amaro claims that the state of California’s COVID-19 safety measures “exacerbated” the impact of the pandemic on Disney Parks, pointing to the state’s “unwillingness” to lift restrictions on reopening Disneyland. Disney Parks has faced a massive financial loss in the wake of the pandemic, with profits dropping 91% in the first three months of 2020. The company will meet with affected employees and the unions that represent them over the next few days, per D’Amaro’s statement. … [Read more...] about Disney Parks to Lay Off 28,000 Employees Due to COVID-19 Impact
