U.S. Blocks Young Syrian ‘White Helmets’ Cinematographer From Oscars

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security at the last minute is barring a young Syrian cinematographer from entering the country to attend the Oscars. The compelling civil-war documentary he risked his life to work on has been nominated for an award.

Khaled Khatib, 21, was set to fly to Los Angeles via Istanbul Saturday, and had obtained a visa to do so. But U.S. officials suddenly found unspecified “derogatory information” linked to Khatib, reports The Associated Press. Khatib was detained in Turkey, and he now needs a passport waiver to enter the U.S., which he will not be able to obtain, according to internal Trump administration documents seen by AP. “Derogatory information” is a broad category that can be something serious to passport irregularities. It’s not clear why Khatib was detained in Trukey.

Khatib was a cinematographer on the 40-minute Netflix documentary “White Helmets,” which has been nominated for Best Documentary, Short Subject. It follows rescue workers for the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets who have saved tens of thousands of lives during the nation’s bloody civil war. The group was founded in 2012 after a Syrian Air Force attack on civilians. It was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2016. Khatib, who started filming the workers when he was just 16, is also a volunteer with the group. 

Some 120 White Helmets have been killed in recent years, including Khaled Omar, known as the “miracle baby rescuer” in Aleppo after pulling an infant out alive from the rubble of the baby’s home in 2014. Omar was killed in an airstrike in 2016. 

“White Helmets” director Orlando von Einsiedel had made a plea to the U.S. to allow those who had worked on and been featured in the film to attend the Oscars. The experience would not only be rewarding for them, he said, but with the world “so divided we could all learn from the White Helmets’ message od compassion and dignity.” After a court halted Trump’s travel ban, the filmmakers revived plans to bring Khatib and White Helmets leader Raed Saleh to Los Angeles.

Saleh will also not be attending now because of the demand of work in Syria.

Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, whose movie “Salesman” is up for Best Foreign Language Film, said last month that he would not attend the awards ceremony because of Trump’s controversial ban.

But Farhadi and the directors of the other four movies in the foreign language category issued an angry statement on Friday blasting America’s “climate of fanaticism and nationalism.” It’s unlikely the directors yet had word that Khatib would not be allowed to attend the Oscars.

“The fear generated by dividing us into genders, colors, religions and sexualities as a means to justify violence destroys the things that we depend on — not only as artists but as humans: the diversity of cultures, the chance to be enriched by something seemingly ‘foreign’ and the belief that human encounters can change us for the better,” their statement reads

“These divisive walls prevent people from experiencing something simple but fundamental: from discovering that we are all not so different.”

Regardless of “who wins the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film on Sunday, we refuse to think in terms of borders,” they wrote. “We believe there is no best country, best gender, best religion or best color. We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts. Human rights are not something you have to apply for. They simply exist — for everybody.”

Khatib had desperately hoped to travel to the Oscars.

“I plan to travel to Los Angeles for the Oscars, where the film is nominated for an award,” he said earlier this month. “If we win this award, it will show people across Syria that people around the world support them. It will give courage to every volunteer who wakes up every morning to run towards bombs.” 

He added: “If I cannot enter the U.S., I will not give up. We know that we have many friends in the U.S., that there are people that share our humanitarian values. I look forward to meeting them all one day.”

19 Reasons Your Obsession With Dev Patel Is Justified

We need to talk about Dev Patel

The 26-year-old British Indian actor could walk away with the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Lion.” In the film, Dev plays Saroo Brierley, a man desperately searching for his family in India after being separated from them at the age of 5. 

It’s a great, fiery performance that deserves recognition in and of itself, but there’s another reason we’re rooting for him. Just read this tweet:

That is a huge deal. On-screen representation matters, and it’s especially important for Asian actors. According to a 2016 diversity study, Asian actors nabbed only 3.9 percent of speaking roles in film ― a stark contrast from the 73.7 percent white actors receive.

That’s not the only reason we’re pulling for Dev to win an Oscar, though. Below, a few reasons why we’re obsessed with the Oscar-nominated actor: 

— Before receiving all this Oscar buzz for “Lion,” Dev was in 2008’s massive hit “Slumdog Millionaire” and was equally amazing in that. Remember when he danced like this and low-key stole your heart? 

— He was also great on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” playing a blogger and the office’s resident computer geek.

— He was super cute back then, of course.

— But right around the time of “The Newsroom,” something began to change. Our nerdy-cute pretend boyfriend started to grow into his looks in a major way. It’s like one day the hair gods smiled down at Dev and said, “Hey, ‘Slumdog’ guy, it’s time to grow out that hair and drive everyone crazy with lust for your locks.” 

And grow it out he did. The swooshy-hair era began and nothing has been the same since. Dev has pretty much blossomed into full babe mode now. 

Woah, right?

— Those curls.

Seriously, THOSE CURLS.

— And dat smile.

— He also has a beautiful, classical profile. And the beard is good, too. (Let’s give credit where credit is due, guys.)

— He’s so good at posing for photo shoots, his side hustle should be modeling. (But please don’t stop acting, Dev.) 

— Then there’s his accent. Dev pulls off a pretty convincing Aussie accent in “Lion,” but his real-life British lilt will melt your heart.

Sigh. Please never stop touching your hair.

— All awards season long, Dev has been a big booster of Sunny Pawar, the adorable 8-year-old who plays the younger version of his character in “Lion.”

Like, he literally boosts him up: 

Sunny very impressively carries the first half of “Lion” all by himself and Dev gives him credit for that every chance he gets.

“He’s so incredible in this film, and I share this nomination with him in a big way,” Dev told the Los Angeles Times recently. 

Don’t pretend you weren’t deeply affected by the cuteness of their introduction of “Lion” at the Golden Globes. 

Same, girl, same. 

— Who’s he taking to the Oscars? Apparently, his mom, Anita. “That’s her moment,” he told the LA Times. “I’m her guest.”

D’aww. Here they are at a 2009 British awards party.

Gotta love a man who respects his mama.

— We also want him to win because we’re positive he’d be so humble and bashful during his acceptance speech. Just look at how he reacted to his name being called for his SAG award nomination. 

— And in spite of all the Oscar buzz surrounding him, Dev realizes we’re living in politically tumultuous times and there’s weightier things happening in the world right now. Here’s what he told the LA Times on the SAG Awards red carpet:

“At times like this, you’re constantly questioning what you’re doing at awards like this or promoting a movie. It feels so pointless. I look to the people around me and they remind me the message of this film, of the art we’re trying to inject into the world right now. It’s about unification,” he added. “When I think about that, it makes me have a little bit more strength.”

— Oh, and another thing: He’s an animal lover. (Dev + doggo = happy us. And loud squee-ing noises, to be honest.)  

— On another shallow note, boy fills out a suit quite well. 

— And in case you were wondering, he has a mean street-style game, too.

— We’re in good company in our Dev devotion. Ellen DeGeneres gave him the title of “Sexiest Man Alive” when he visited the show back in January. So well deserved, even if Dev was like, “Aw, shucks, me?”

And his “Lion” co-star Nicole Kidman recognizes his swag as well. 

Watch out, Keith Urban.

— Heck, even his ex-girlfriend and “Slumdog Millionaire” co-star Freida Pinto gave him props on Instagram for his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nom.

So clearly, he’s best supporting ex-boyfriend, too.

Now would be a good time to mention what a ridiculously good-looking couple they were a few years back.

So pretty.

— Lastly, Dev’s work on “Lion” didn’t end when he was done filming. He’s been busy promoting #LionHeart, a social impact campaign which will provide financial support to the over 11 million children who live on the streets of India. Here’s our boy asking people to contribute: 

In conclusion, Dev Patel is a super talented actor and a stand-up guy with amazing hair. 

Cheers to you, Dev. We’re pulling for you and your epic curls Sunday night!

Stephen Colbert Takes Aim At Donald Trump’s Nuclear Arsenal Ambitions

Stephen Colbert picked apart President Donald Trump’s desire to ramp up America’s nuclear arsenal on Friday.

The “Late Show” host first poked fun at the way in which the commander in chief said Thursday that he wanted to make the U.S. the “top of the pack” when it came to nukes.

“Not sure if he means top dog or leader of the pack,” quipped Colbert, “but either way, he is not the sharpest knife on the Christmas tree.”

Taking on a more serious tone, Colbert called a new proliferation of nuclear weapons a “terrifying prospect” — coming as it did following years of “careful” decommissioning.

“It’s like the Cold War all over again,” the host said. “But this time everyone’s on Russia’s side.”

Check out the full segment above.

There’s A Massive Photo Of Kourtney Kardashian As Jesus On The Cross In Khloe’s House

It appears Kourtney Kardashian is taking notes from Yeezus

On Friday, the mother-of-three shared a clip on her Snapchat, walking viewers through her sister Khloe’s home. At one point, she goes up the stairs to reveal what appears to be a large framed photo of herself in the image of Jesus crucified on the cross, just casually hanging on the wall. 

The Kardashians have not hidden their Christian beliefs ― they were the topic of an interview with Oprah in 2012 ― but we’re going to go ahead and say this probably doesn’t represent living in the image of God.

Stephen Colbert Summarizes This Year’s Oscar-Nominated Movies, Based Solely On Their Posters

Stephen Colbert admits to not watching the movies that are nominated for Best Picture at the 89th annual Academy Awards.

So for Friday’s broadcast of the “Late Show,” he got into the Oscars spirit by summarizing each of the contenders ― based solely on what he’d seen on their promotional posters.

Turns out “Lion” is literally about two lovers from the wrong sides of the tracks. (Well, according to Colbert, anyways).

Billboard Proclaiming Role Of ‘Real’ Men And Women Sows A Sexist Mystery

A billboard in North Carolina declares a very strong opinion on “real” men and women ― and it has a lot of people talking about gender roles and family households.

The billboard along a Winston-Salem highway reads in large print, with no other context: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”

An anonymous group leased the billboard for at least 30 days, The Associated Press reported.

Bill Whiteheart, president of the advertising company that owns the billboard, told CNN the group that purchased the $ 2,000 ad space wants to stay anonymous. 

“We’re not supportive of or in opposition to the message,” Whiteheart told CNN. “We’re just the messenger.”

The billboard’s message, however, has offended some local residents. Boutique owner Molly Grace has created a Facebook event scheduled for Sunday morning to protest the billboard.

“I take it as a very deliberate jab at women who demand equality and demand to be seen as equals and those who are vocal,” Grace told local news station WXII-12. “To me, it’s also a very blatant statement about wanting to silence women and tell them to accept the way that things are.”

But not everyone thinks the sign is offensive. In fact, Grace’s Facebook event page has become a platform for debate on what the sign actually means.

Some argue that the sign devalues women who are breadwinners for their families and single women who provide for themselves. Others say the sign appears to be a derogatory statement against men who don’t provide for their families

“I would assume if you had a husband that loves you and appreciates you and showed it enough to carry your family and kids, that you would appreciate it,” resident Nathan Walin told WHNT News 19. “I don’t know why that would be offensive.

Heated discussions on the Facebook event page often touch on the lifestyle choices of single mothers, stay-at-home mothers and single working women. Grace clarified on Facebook that Sunday’s protest is about the sign’s “choice of words.”

“The sentiment that has upset SO many people…is the notion that these roles, on the billboard at least, are limited by their assigned gender,” Grace wrote on the Facebook event page.

Whiteheart, the owner of the billboard, said an announcement about the billboard would be coming. He didn’t elaborate, according to AP.

Think You Know All The Different Bra Types? Here Are 25.

You may think that bra types are confined to several genres ― pushups, bralettes, strapless and sports bras ― but there is more to the brassiere than meets the eye.

In a video published this week, YouTuber Davison Video makes boob support easier to understand by identifying 25 types of bras. And, to be honest, we had no idea that many types of bras existed.

From the classic convertible and demi bras to the vintage bullet and ever-functional maternity (aka nursing) bra, the video above is a visual encyclopedia of bras we never knew we needed.

Conan O’Brien Hits Mexico City To Raise Cash For Donald Trump’s Border Wall

Conan O’Brien is giving President Donald Trump a helping hand in financing his U.S.-Mexico border wall. Kind of.

The late night TV host is relocating his show to Mexico City for a special one-off episode next week. So he decided to use his spare time to (satirically) raise funds for the controversial project.

In a clip posted online Friday, the comedian hit the streets of Mexico’s capital to ask local residents for cash donations — and even offered them incentives in exchange for their money. After all, as the comedian told them, Trump has repeatedly stated that “Mexico will pay for the wall.”

See how successful O’Brien was (not) in raising money in the clip above.

His special ― titled “Conan Without Borders: Made In Mexico” ― is slated to air on TBS on March 1. 

All the crew filming the show in front of an all-Mexican audience at a Mexico City studio hail from the country, and it will feature only guests from Mexico.

David Bowie Fans Reveal Plans To Build A Giant Lightning Bolt In His Hometown

David Bowie mega-fans have a big idea for memorializing the late star ― so big in fact, that the statue would be the height of a small building. 

In Bowie’s birthplace of Brixton, south London, a group of artists have banded together to propose a 3-story-tall lightning bolt to pay tribute to the singer.

It’s an homage to the lightning bolt the artist had painted on his face on the cover of his 1973 album “Aladdin Sane.” Bowie died at the age of 69 last year, following an 18-month battle with cancer.

The London-based design group This Ain’t Rock ’N’ Roll is leading the charge for the statue in coordination with Bowie’s teams in the United Kingdom’s capital and New York City.

The plans call for the memorial to be built five streets from Bowie’s birthplace on Stansfield Road, the BBC reported Tuesday.

“When David Bowie died, the world lost an irreplaceable talent. Brixton also lost a son. David Bowie, our Brixton boy,” says a press release for the project. “Now the Brixton community is building a permanent memorial in the place of his birth.”

Organizers are seeking to raise £990,000 (about $ 1.2 million) via a U.K.crowdfunding website for the project. The campaign goes through March 21. 

Bowie was also honored with a lightning bolt-shaped constellation last year. MIRA Public Observatory in Brussels, Belgium, teamed up with local radio station Studio Brussel to register the group of stars.

Learn more about the Brixton lightning memorial in the video above.

These Photos Posted By People Of Color In Love Make A Beautiful Point

A powerful hashtag is here to remind us that love is diverse and beautiful.

Last year, the Twitter account @BeautyInColor created the hashtag #POCInLove to bring visibility to relationships between people of color. Last week, the 23-year-old behind the account revived the hashtag for Valentine’s Day.

The photos tweeted by couples so far are unbelievably sweet: 

Really, could these two be any cuter? 

Some tweets are poetry-filled: 

Other people talk about how they had to cross a cultural divide to be together: 

The woman behind the hashtag told The Huffington Post that she created the hashtag as a response to the lack of couples of color and LGBT couples portrayed in movies and TV. 

“It’s important all types of love are celebrated,” she said. “Relationships are hard as it is but it’s even harder when you’re dealing with racism, homophobia or your families not accepting your partner.”

With this hashtag, “it’s just nice for people to show off the person they’re with and possibly had to fight to be with.”

James Corden Argues Why Donald Trump Should Be Allowed A State Visit To The UK

James Corden thinks Donald Trump paying an official state visit to the United Kingdom may not be such a bad thing.

A petition to ban the president from being Queen Elizabeth II’s guest at her Buckingham Palace home has garnered more than 1.8 million signatures and sparked a debate in U.K. parliament. But the “Late, Late Show” host pointed out Tuesday how it could actually end up being pretty fascinating.

Kind of like “the greatest sitcom of all time,” said Corden, who desperately wants the encounter between POTUS and the monarch to be filmed.

He later suggested a title for what could become a groundbreaking reality TV show starring the duo.

Corden went on to poke fun at Trump’s new national security adviser, Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. And he highlighted the controversy over the amount of time the president spends on the golf course ― but he made a compelling case for why Trump should be allowed to stay there for as long as he wants.

Model Who Dangled From Dubai Skyscraper Says She Should Be Compensated

Let’s all agree: We have to stop doing things for the ‘gram.

Russian model Viki Odintcova gave the internet collective heart palpitations in early February after she posted an Instagram video of herself dangerously dangling off a 75-story skyscraper in Dubai with no apparent safety gear for a risky photo shoot.

Odintcova, an Instagram celebrity with some 3 million followers, performed the stunt atop Dubai’s Cayan Tower, also known as the “Twisting Tower,” which has a 90-degree spiral and stands 1,005 feet tall.

Odintcova first posted a clip of the stunt in December with a disclaimer that it was executed by professionals and should not be attempted by the general public. The full video of the photo shoot was produced by Mavrin Studios and published to YouTube in late January.

Following the video’s rise in popularity, Cayan Group, the development company that owns the building, announced Friday that it plans to take legal action against Odintcova and her cohorts for breaching building security and for performing the stunt without permission.

The company condemned the model’s “irresponsible actions,” adding that its reaction to the video is “in no way a reflection of the Group’s commitments to art, creativity, and the human spirit.”

Gizel Daher, a spokesperson for Cayan Group, said Cayan Towers has periodically been used for extreme sports events, but with added safety, security and emergency services on site.

Cayan Towers vets professionals for those events and has a strict review of safety measures before approving such stunts, Daher said in a press release.

Full video (link in bio)! @a_mavrin #MAVRINmodels #MAVRIN #VikiOdintcova #Dubai

A post shared by Viki Odintcova (@viki_odintcova) on

Odintcova responded Sunday to Cayan Group’s announcement, claiming that she should be compensated for revealing the tower’s faulty security.

“We deserve a reward for disclosing weaknesses in the security of that building,” Odintcova told United Arab Emirates-based newspaper The National. “We were at the rooftop of that building without any evil intentions, however someone else could have come out there to commit suicide or an act of terrorism.”

Local police have summoned the model to sign an agreement stating that she promises to never repeat any dangerous, life-threatening act in Dubai, the newspaper reported.

Odintcova said she would sign the agreement if the police mailed it to her. She also promised to never repeat the stunt, or similar ones, again.

And That’s How I Beat Shaq … At A Game Of Mind Control

Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal showed up to work at 5 a.m. today, I’m told as I waltz into New York’s Chelsea Market roughly six hours later. 

Shaq is here to promote Oreos and we’re testing out a “mind reading Oreo” technology game. He didn’t know it yet, but I’d made it my new life goal to beat him at this made-up game, if only so I could utter the same words Aaron Carter once did in his hit 2001 single, “That’s How I Beat Shaq.”

“Look at his shoes, he’s wearing size 23 Toms!” whispers an associate as I watch the former NBA pro laugh and joke with everyone in the room.

He’s shooting promos for Oreo in a glass-encased room, where fans have gathered outside. Because he’s Shaq, he keeps bringing people in for selfies. O’Neal even spent a few minutes convincing a mother to come inside and hand over her baby. He loves the baby and the baby loves him. 

Shaq is more imposing than you’d expect him to be and even friendlier than you’d think. He likes to give cameramen and photographers a hard time when they take too many shots of him, but still never says no. He found out someone working on the Oreo account didn’t have a girlfriend so he spent part of the event trying to drum up a date for him. Shaq told me that he’s a great matchmaker.

He’s also great at portion control. The Basketball Hall of Famer told me that he always eats at least three Oreos when he sits down to eat the cookies, but he never goes past a sleeve. Shaq pairs his Oreos with 2 percent milk (he dips each one twice) even though the move is actually quite risky for him. 

“I’m lactose intolerant,” he said. When I asked if he takes a Lactaid beforehand, O’Neal said no. 

We got into the best varieties of Oreos (Shaq likes lemon and mint-covered Oreos, but says Original is the best). He told me Oreo Thins were “cute” and expressed interest in a new flavor he just heard about, called Pumpkin Spice, though he doesn’t want to try them. He’s also never had a double-stuffed Oreo and has no interest in trying them.

“I’m big on rituals. I’ve been doing this for years, no need to switch up now,” Shaq said. “Even though I did switch up [with] the lemon.”

We delve into locker room snacks (he said there were always peanut butter sandwiches around) and after a few more minutes of chit chat, the interview was coming to a close. It was almost time to participate in this made-up game, one where we use “mind reading technology” to move an Oreo ― hanging by a string from the ceiling ― in order to complete a “hands-free dunk.” Participants wear a white headband with “brain sensing technology” that is somehow connected to a cookie:

To win, one must concentrate on the cookie and move it forward using only your mind, like so: 

I’d gotten in one round of practice before my interview (I’d miss the coveted Oreo dunk by millimeters) and then watched Shaq crush a fellow interviewee before we met up. Despite Shaq’s size, strength and incredible athletic ability, I had a feeling I could beat him. 

“Do you want to play against me in the Oreo challenge?” I asked in a shaky voice as we got up from the couches where I was interviewing him. My stomach was rumbling, but I couldn’t tell if it was from nerves or the amount of Oreos I’d eaten. 

“If you wanna lose,” he said. 

We walked over to the table where the game was set up and we’d attempt to out-mind-read each other. I accepted a blue hair tie from an Oreo associate so I could put my hair up and properly put on my “mind reading” headband. 

“She’s putting her hair up, she’s serious!” Shaq said. I was. Shaq began chatting with a few fans before we got into the game, which allowed me some time to practice my Oreo mantra. Apparently by concentrating on the dangling cookie and blocking everything out, you could move it faster to your side of the table and dunk it. 

Finally, the time had come to play. Shaq and I counted to three and then pressed a button on an iPad to get the game going. I immediately focused on my Oreo with razor-sharp concentration, drawing laughs from Shaq. 

“OHHHH, look at her eyes!” he said. “Wow.” He tried psyching me out by magically waving his hands and then putting his head down to concentrate, but it didn’t work. Pretty soon, my Oreo was moving and Shaq’s was staying still. 

“Progress report!” he demanded. An Oreo associate answered, “She’s beating you, Shaq.” 

“It ain’t moving!” he said, while I took this joyous opportunity to shit talk one of the greatest athletes of all time. “I’m in your head, Shaq,” I said. 

Finally, his Oreo started to move a little bit, but I was close to victory. I started to smile like an idiot, eyes crossing as I stared at the Oreo quickly approaching my forehead. 

I think my scream of victory at the end says it all:

Roxane Gay Dismisses Publisher’s Break With Milo Yiannopoulos As Cold-Hearted Business Decision

Feminist (or Bad Feminist) author and essayist Roxane Gay hasn’t warmed to Simon & Schuster after the publishing giant canceled its book deal with Milo Yiannopoulos on Monday following his comments on pedophilia.

In fact, Gay dismissed the news as a simple “business decision,” she wrote on Tumblr, “the same way they made a business decision when they decided to publish that man in the first place.”

A video in which the Breitbart editor appears to defend pedophilia surfaced online recently; the controversy also revoked his invitation to a conservative conference planned for next week with Vice President Mike Pence.

“Simon & Schuster realized it would cost them more money to do business with Milo than he could earn for them,” Gay wrote. “They were fine with his racist and xenophobic and sexist ideologies. They were fine with his transphobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. They were fine with how he encourages his followers to harass women and people of color and transgender people online.”

The author yanked her upcoming nonfiction bookHow to Be Heard, from Simon & Schuster late last month in protest of the company’s decision to publish Dangerous by the white nationalist alt-right figure. 

Gay also claims that Simon & Schuster retaliated to her decision with pettiness, stating the company moved the publication date of Dangerous to June 13 ― the same day her next book, Hunger, is set to be released by a different publisher. She confirmed that she will no longer work with Simon & Schuster.

Yiannopoulos’ list of offenses against women, people of color, Muslims, transgender people and other groups is long. In June, he was permanently banned from Twitter after inciting racist harassment of comedian Leslie Jones. His appearance is enough to spark outrage; students recently stopped him from speaking at the University of California at Berkeley after violent protests broke out, and a journalist canceled his appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” after discovering Yiannopoulos had been booked on the same episode. 

“There are some who will spin the cancellation of this book contract as a failure of the freedom of speech but such is not the case,” Gay ended her statement, “This is yet another example of how we are afforded the freedom of speech but there is no freedom from the consequences of what we say.”

These ‘La La Land’ Engagement Pics Capture That Old Hollywood Romance

Let’s give this couple an Oscar nod for their dreamy “La La Land”-themed engagement photos.

Ellen Wleklinski and Corey Collins teamed up with photographer Marlies Hartmann of M. Hart Photography for the Los Angeles shoot, inspired by the Academy Award-nominated film that follows aspiring actress Mia (Emma Stone) and struggling jazz musician Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) as they fall in love and pursue their dreams. 

Some of the engagement pics were taken on Jan. 29 at and around the Griffith Observatory, where parts of the movie were shot. The starry nighttime photos were taken two weeks later at the Hollywood Bowl Overlook. 

“Ellen and Corey’s relationship encapsulates the same romance, passion, playfulness and chemistry that was felt between Mia and Sebastian throughout the film,” the photographer told The Huffington Post. “Not only did they resemble the characters physically, but their relationship embodies all the best elements of Gosling and Stone seen in the movie.”

The bride-to-be had suggested Griffith Observatory to Marlies as a possible location for the shoot since she often runs in the park nearby. At the time, Marlies had just seen “La La Land” and thought it would be a perfect theme to capture the couple’s own classic love story. 

“I was initially hesitant to suggest it to them since I wasn’t sure if they had seen or even liked the movie, but I threw out the idea and they loved it!” she told HuffPost. “They were both huge fans of the film, and Ellen always felt that Corey looked like her own personal Ryan Gosling!” 

The couple plans to tie the knot in September at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. Below, more photos from the utterly romantic shoot:

Stephen Colbert Has The Perfect Response To Donald Trump’s Sweden Comment

Stephen Colbert had two words for Donald Trump after the president falsely suggested a terrorist attack had happened in Sweden last week: “Never fjorget.”

The “Late Show” host mocked Trump over his latest stumble, a moment folks on Twitter were quick to pounce on. Colbert replayed a clip of Trump suggesting that something tragic happened in Sweden the night before the president held a rally in Florida.

“You look at what’s happening in Germany,” Trump said. “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden!”

“No one,” Colbert said. “No one would believe that. Well, not no one, but maybe someone who skips their intelligence briefings.”

Watch the entire monologue in the clip above.

The 5 Most Political Moments From New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017

New York Fashion Week wasn’t just about clothes this year ― it was also about the message. 

This February, designers finally began making some bold moves toward inclusivity and diversity. But other shows also became political acts of resistance, like when LSR sent models down the runway in clothes denouncing President Trump’s Muslim travel ban and proposed wall between Mexico and the U.S. Or when designers and models wore white bandanas to signal they were part of the opposition, and pink Planned Parenthood pins to show their support. 

No matter the action, however big or small, the fashion world made it clear it won’t tolerate the intolerance found in the current political climate. 

1. “F**k Your Wall” clothing. 

Mexican-born designer Raul Solis had a clear-cut message for Donald Trump in his LSR NYFW show. He printed “No Ban, No Wall” and “F**k Your Wall” on models’ underwear. Solis told Dazed Digital he opposed Trump’s wall because the designer’s family is “first generation Mexican and some had to migrate to the U.S., [so] this issue is something extremely personal to me.” 

2. Trolling Trump with his signature slogan.

Public School New York put a fun spin on Donald Trump’s campaign hat and made it their own. They put the slogan on a cropped sweatshirt and hats for the show.  

3. White bandanas for solidarity, unity and inclusiveness.

The news site Business of Fashion started the bandana movement to show solidarity during a time of turmoil. Designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, Tommy Hilfiger, Thakoon, Phillip Lim, and Diane von Furstenberg either incorporated the bandanas into their shows or simply wore them.  

4. “This Is Not America” music. 

Raf Simons’ Calvin Klein debut included a mix of David Bowie’s 1985 song, “This Is Not America.” Attendees were also given white bandanas to wear before the show started. 

5. Fashion’s Planned Parenthood stance. 

Thanks to a partnership between the CFDA and Planned Parenthood, over 40 designers joined forces to include PP pins at their shows. The pins were also given out to PR people, modeling agencies, influencers and press throughout NYFW, along with a pamphlet outlining all the services Planned Parenthood offers.

Donald Trump Superfan’s TV Interview Gets Remixed To Eminem’s ‘Stan’

Donald Trump devotee Gene Huber’s gushing CNN interview about the president has been given an Eminem twist.

Over the weekend, Twitter user @BeardedGenius remixed parts of Huber’s effusive comments about Trump over the Detroit rapper’s 2000 hit “Stan” ― which is about an obsessed fan writing to his idol.

Check out the clip here:

The mashup has since gone viral, and even been tweeted by singer and actor Josh Groban. Eminem, who called Trump a “bitch” in a verse on Big Sean’s new track “No Favors,” has so far not commented.

Huber enthusiastically praised Trump on Saturday after the president had earlier invited him onstage at his campaign-style rally in Melbourne, Florida.

In the interview, the 47-year-old car salesman also revealed he had a 6-foot cardboard cutout of the president in his house that he salutes “every single day.”

Great Gig In Glastonbury: Is A Pink Floyd Reunion In The Works?

Can pigs fly? 

Pink Floyd fans are hoping so after the possibility ― however remote ― was raised that the surviving members of the band could reunite for the Glastonbury Festival this summer.

“I don’t think it is very likely but yes, I would do it given the opportunity,” drummer Nick Mason said last week, according to The Guardian.

Mason was appearing with bassist/vocalist Roger Waters to help promote “The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains,” an upcoming art show about the band at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Waters didn’t flatly reject the possibility, but he called the topic “boring.”

“The last I heard, David retired,” said Waters, referring to guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour.

“I heard he’d retired and then he seemed to unretire, so we don’t know,” Mason said. 

Last year, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis said he was going to “work on” bringing the surviving members of the band back together. However, Gilmour has repeatedly dismissed any possibility of a Pink Floyd reunion. 

Roger and I have outgrown each other, and it would be impossible for us to work together on any realistic basis,” Gilmour told the Telegraph while promoting his 2015 solo album, “Rattle That Lock.”

Pink Floyd went through a contentious and litigious divorce in the 1980s, with three members ― Mason, Gilmour and keyboardist Richard Wright ― eventually recording and touring under the name without Waters. They reunited for a single performance at the Live 8 benefit in 2005 (above), the first time all four had performed together since 1981. 

Wright died three years later. Syd Barrett, a Pink Floyd cofounder who left the band in 1968, died in 2006.  

Pink Floyd has since released a “final” album called “The Endless River,” which features material recorded largely during 1990s sessions involving Gilmour, Mason and Wright. Waters was not involved. 

Waters and Gilmour have joined each other on stage a couple of times, and Waters, Mason and Gilmour briefly shared the stage in 2011. The three have also issued a couple of joint statements. In 2013, they denounced the online music service Pandora for its campaign to cut royalty payments. And last year, the three issued a statement in the band’s name in support of the Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla.

If the band decides to reunite for a concert, it should probably happen soon.

“We’re all beginning to feel our age and may not be around for much longer,” Mason warned last week, according to the Telegraph.

In the meantime, Waters has a new solo album coming out and will tour in support of it ― and his shows will no doubt include a number of tunes from the Pink Floyd catalog.

Woman Upstages Her Own Proposal With Incredible Half-Court Shot

A surprise marriage proposal usually takes the cake, but one woman stole the show before her boyfriend even popped the question. 

Erin Tobin was selected to participate in a Dunkin’ Donuts half-court shot promotion during Thursday night’s Siena Saints men’s basketball game at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York.

Tobin’s boyfriend, Steve Duckett, set up the scenario with the help of Dunkin’ Donuts and Siena Athletics so he could propose to her mid-court. He hid in the Dunkin’ Donuts mascot while the Siena alumna got ready.

Before Duckett revealed himself and popped the question, Tobin sank a half-court basket and the crowd went wild. The proposal turned out to be the cherry on top of an already awesome night.

Watch it all in the video above.

Twitter Couldn’t Handle How Terrible Lifetime’s Britney Spears Biopic Was

No one expects an unauthorized Lifetime movie to be good ― or even 100 percent accurate, for that matter ― but the network’s Britney Spears biopic, “Britney Ever After,” which premiered Saturday night, has permanently lowered our expectations. 

The movie, which was not approved by Spears or her team, aired just days after the 10-year anniversary of the time the singer shaved her own head. The incident was included in the film, but like many other things in the movie, Lifetime didn’t get everything quite right

This exasperated fans on Twitter to no end. They took issue with the flagrant anachronisms of having flat screen TVs and iPhones in the early 2000s, for example:

Meanwhile, the casting of actors who looked nothing like their real life counterparts was also a big complaint: 

Others were incredibly peeved by the fact that Lifetime couldn’t even get some of Spears’ most iconic outfits and costumes right.

The filmmakers took some liberties with the legendary matching denim outfits that Spears and Justin Timberlake wore to the 2001 American Music Awards: 

The low-budget quality of the costumes Spears wore in the film were also a point of contention:

Then there was the whole issue of making a Britney Spears biopic without including any of her music:

Oh, and there was the godawful post-breakup dance-off scene (which is something that reportedly actually happened), which is what you get for casting actors with no dance experience: 

And at times, the cheesy dialogue was just an insult to everyone involved: 

Overall, “Britney Ever After” left Spears fans wanting much more for the pop princess.

Karlie Kloss In Yellowface And Expecting More From Our Allies

In the past five years, grassroots activism has defined citizen unrest and resistance towards government, politicians, and the police. The Trump presidency era adds a layer of political and activist urgency, ensuring that every part of culture become political. It seems that brands, Hollywood institutions, and other previously apolitical institutions are now part of a national dialogue about race, inequality, and marginalization.

One of the most visible advocates for visibility, particularly for girls and women in tech is Karlie Kloss, a supermodel and self-proclaimed techy with “nerdy passions.” Her brand as a liaison and entrepreneur who seamlessly lives and breathes the culture of tech and fashion has expanded to include partnerships that promote women who innovate with Elle UK, Flatiron School, and more.

To the shock of many (and not so much to others), Kloss recently came under fire for posing in Yellowface in Vogue’s Diversity issue. In the photo series, Kloss poses in traditional Japanese kimonos, bath houses, and scenery, while the few Asian actors in the shoot (in the form of a sumo wrestler and a server) serve as props to highlight and celebrate Kloss’s figure as a celebration of Japanese culture.

Cultural appropriation disguised under the clichéd catch-all phrase of “diversity” has a long standing history in this country. It is bigger than the Yellowface we see in the forthcoming Vogue issue. It is part of a greater conversation that needs to be had about white women and white culture taking wrongful ownership of women of color’s past and current sorrows, celebrations, and victories. Even Kloss’s personal brand push to be the face of the women and girls in tech movement and being the poster child for opportunity and accessibility is one that is not rightfully hers. By promoting herself as a champion of the girls in tech movement, she wrongfully capitalizes and owns the accomplishments of girls and women who faced insurmountable hurdles to achieve in a male-dominated field.

Kloss’s latest gaffe in Vogue’s issue highlights one of the biggest Catch-22s in cultural and civil rights movements, like the one our country is currently experiencing: white allies who take part of a movement that demands equal representation and respected existence of people of color and marginalized communities. Allies who demand space in discourse and dialogue, but are unwilling to be held accountable towards their own actions that fuel and stand with the same institutions and historical culture of repression. The series of Women’s Marches across the nation sparked dialogues on white feminism and speculations about the motivations behind a March that demanded marchers be “women first.”

It is critical that allies do a better job in understanding the differences between what it means to be an ally who understands the struggles and victories of minorities without robbing groups of their cultures, victories and struggles.

This type of pressure to unite as a singular identity echoes the same appropriative dialogue used during the Women’s Suffrage movement in both the USA and the UK. Philosophy Professor Elizabeth Spelman notes in her 1997 book Fruits of Sorrow: Framing Our Attention to Suffering, that phrases such as “women and minorities” overshadow and remove the identity and experiences of minority women and take these experiences to work towards the motivations of white women. Spelman asks her readers, “Consider the talk about women being treated like slaves. Whenever we talk that way we are not only making clear that the ‘women’ we’re referring to aren’t themselves slaves; we’re making it impossible to talk about how the women who weren’t slaves treated those who were.” Spelman implores us to critically examine the politics of the words we use to describe our experiences. The wording and metaphors we use have the potential to not only silence the underrepresented and disenfranchised, but also removes accountability from the relationship that the “women” being referenced have with the oppressed and underrepresented.

It is critical that allies do a better job in understanding the differences between what it means to be an ally who understands the struggles and victories of minorities and people of color without overstepping and robbing groups of their cultures, victories, and struggles. The very fact that the Vogue and Kloss teams came to the conclusion that having a white woman representing Japanese culture in its diversity issue shows that mainstream media still struggles in its role as an ally. Within hours of the photos being released, Kloss issued an apology for participating in the Vogue photoshoot that appropriated Japanese culture.

However, as several days have passed since the controversy, Vogue has still yet to release an apology, making it clear that diversity, not inclusivity, is a priority simply in its potential to profit and erase centuries of oppression and silenced voices. Vogue’s silence further fuels a long standing history of fashion and its reluctance to open doors and make room for stories that demand conversations about its relationship to people of color, minority women, LGBTQ, immigrant, and all underrepresented communities. As the country continues to mobilize and people of all backgrounds stand up, resist, and define themselves as allies of marginalized communities, it will be all the more critical for everyone to critically examine what it means to be an ally without silencing the individuals that dared to demand more for their communities, children, and future.

John Oliver Perfectly Explains Trump’s ‘Weird’ Relationship With Putin

President Donald Trump has repeatedly shown admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, even as his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia have come under scrutiny. 

“There is no hard proof yet of direct links between Trump himself and Russia,” John Oliver pointed out on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday. “But he does have a noticeably soft spot for both the country and its leader.”

Oliver then played a montage of clips showing Trump saying how good it would be to get along with Russia.

“It’s a bit weird,” Oliver said. “You’ve been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than you have to Meryl Streep.”

Oliver spent much of the segment looking at how Putin treats his enemies, launched a vigorous defense of the United States and then created a warning for Trump ― in the form of a techno song. 

Check it out above.

‘The Lion King’ Remake Has A New Simba

Back in September, Disney announced plans to create a remake of its animated classic “The Lion King.” This time around, director Jon Favreau will likely use CGI animation to create a circle of life that looks much more realistic than it did in the 1994 version.

Disney is currently rebooting many of the music-filled movies that dominated previous generations’ childhoods ― including “Beauty and the Beast,” “Cinderella,” “Pete’s Dragon” and “The Jungle Book,” which Favreau also directed.

In very 2016 fashion, Favreau used emojis to reveal his involvement in the new movie on Twitter:

Last night, Favreau tweeted more details about the project, finally revealing that Donald Glover will play Simba and James Earl Jones will reclaim the role of the patriarch, Mufasa.

Glover is becoming reboot royalty. He just landed the role of Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo “Star Wars” movie. Of course, Disney now owns the rights to that franchise as well.

Glover’s two Golden Globe wins earlier this year, for the creation and lead acting role in his new show, “Atlanta,” are contributing to the young actor’s rise.

Jones, meanwhile, has voiced Mufasa multiple times since he first lent his talents to the original Disney movie. His voice appears in a “Lion King” video game, short side clips, and the sequels “The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride” and “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar.”

The actor also recently reprised his speaking role as the villainous Darth Vader in Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Hopefully Jones and Glover can pull off a father-son dynamic in “The Lion King” that has less of an underlying dark side than the one in “Star Wars.”

It remains unclear when the new version of “The Lion King” will finally debut.

Rats Beware: These Broom-Toting College Students Don’t Mess Around

This plan is as elaborate as the Mousetrap board game.

A group of college roommates attending Duquesene University in Pittsburgh faced a daunting problem when a large rat moved in to their space. Instead of cowering in fear at the threat ― like many would ― they banded together to defeat the “Rat King.”

Their plan required patience, precision, and a ridiculously clutch sweep of a broom. The women blocked off the “Rat King’s” route and prepared for battle.

“We were all freaking out,” Jody Mackin told Buzzfeed News.  

After they set the trap, Mackin and her friends sprung into action. Video shows the rat flopping down the stairs like a rag doll before the boyfriend of one of the roommates sweets the animal outside.

Many Twitter users hailed the women as heroes for creating the ingenious trap.

 But some felt sorry for the rat.

 

But many were happy that the rodent escaped intact.

Hair Freezing Contest Is Hottest Thing In The Yukon Right Now

Things are pretty chill in Whitehorse, Yukon, in February, where the average temperature rarely exceeds 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

But things can still get heated, thanks to a chilling hair-freezing competition.

The Takhini Hot Pools, which has held the very cool contest every February since 2011, invites hot spring visitors to submit their best frozen hair photos in hopes of winning a first prize of $ 700 in cold hard cash.

Stay frosty ☃ ❄️♨️ #hotsprings #takhinihotsprings #exploreyukon

A post shared by Brett Elliot (@btelliot) on

The Hot Pools have offered some tips on how to get that freshly frozen look. 

First, hair freezing is best when done in temperatures -20 Fahrenheit or colder. Any warmer and your hair may take too long to freeze.

Wet your head in the hot springs. Then allow the cold air to freeze your hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.

People with very long hair should lay it down on the sides of the pool so it freezes in single, long strands.

Keep your ears warm by dipping them into the hot springs, but make sure not to get your hair wet ― that defeats the hair freezing.

It is beyond what I expected #takhinihotsprings #whitehorse #yukon #frozenhair #vacation #ilovehere

When the hair begins to freeze, mold it into the shape you want.

This Amazing Video Is Taking Voguing Out Of The Club And Into The Streets

Voguing, the classic queer dance, takes center stage ― but off stage and off the runway ― in a stunning new video entitled “HANDS.”

Creator Kemar Jewel, who previously released “Voguing Train,” told The Huffington Post that the video is intended to help people understand that no matter who you are or how you identify, voguing can be a part of your life.

“The beauty of taking vogue and putting it into everyday life is that it helps to reveal the people who are apart of voguing and ballroom culture as apart of society,” Jewel told The Huffington Post. “Seeing voguing in parks, schools, bars, and churches (shameless plug for my next video) helps to bring awareness that this style of dance is used to celebrate life and self-expression.”

Check out “HANDS” for above. Missed “Voguing Train”? Head here to check it out.

Auditions For Broadway’s ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ Are Happening Next Week

Broadway babies and Harry Potter super-fans, listen here: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” auditions are happening. In New York. Next week. 

That’s right, according to a listing on Backstage, tryouts for J.K. Rowling’s play picking up where the final book’s epilogue left off, will be held from Feb. 20 until Feb. 22, 2017. Those who make the cut will probably come as close to receiving a Hogwarts acceptance letter as a muggle could possibly dream of. 

The memo itemizes all the roles under consideration, along with short descriptions of the characters. Luckily, most of us already know the parts quite intimately. Harry Potter, for example, is described as “Father of James, Albus and Lily. Married to Ginny. Head of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic.” The actor who takes on the role should be no taller than 5’10” and between the ages of 37 and 40.

The casting call notes, as well, that every role, all ethnicities are welcome. 

Those familiar with the London run of play might recall that Hermione Granger was played by black actress, Noma Dumezweni. Despite the fact that Rowling described Granger in the books as having brown eyes and bushy brown hair, with no mention of her being white, the casting decision was met by some with outrage, outrage Rowling dutifully called out as straight-up racist

Thus, it’s exciting to see that Rowling and the “Cursed Child” team have continued the tradition of colorblind casting. Given the author’s glorious skewering of the bigoted Twitter trolls in her mentions, it’s not too surprising that she is using her platform to spread a message of diversity and inclusion. 

Head to the listing itself to see if you have what it takes to play Harry, Ginny, Moaning Myrtle or Professor McGonagall. The pay, if you’re curious, is $ 1,974 a week. If you have talent, or a lightning-shaped scar on your forehead, please apply.

These Asian Men Are Sexy And They Know It (And They Can Dance, Too)

Asian men are sexy and they know it. 

In a new video from comedy duo Seventh Grade, Asian guys with some serious dance moves get down to “Pony” by Ginuwine and effectively thrust aside Steve Harvey’s recent remarks about women not finding Asian dudes attractive. 

Take a look:

And here’s another preview, just for good measure:

Last month, Harvey laughed hysterically at a 2002 book called How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. The TV host just couldn’t buy into the idea that any woman would want to date an Asian guy. (He later apologized.)

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Geo Lee said he and Chuck Maa, the co-creator of Seventh Grade, were taken aback by Harvey’s comedy bit.

“When we first heard it, Chuck actually said out loud, ‘What? Is this real life?’ We honestly thought the ‘joke’ was a bit dated,” Lee told us. “At the same time, we weren’t surprised because both of us and most likely a lot of Asian American men have been dealing with this for the majority of our lives.” 

Dealing with it but not taking it lying down. Seventh Grade is breaking down stereotypes with their grade-A sense of humor and ~steamy~ choreography. 

At the end of the video, the guys all joke that they don’t need to worry about their attractiveness since they all have girlfriends anyway. But that’s not exactly true.

“We lied in the video,” Lee said. “Chuck is currently single.”

Ladies…

‘Late Show’ Imagines Candidate Donald Trump Running Against President Donald Trump

How would candidate Donald Trump campaign against his presidential self?

The “Late Show” imagined such a scenario on Friday, by overlaying audio of some of the verbal attacks Trump made on former President Barack Obama over footage of Trump from the last four weeks. 

“This guy plays more golf than people on the PGA tour,” quipped candidate Trump, while photographs of the president on the green flashed up on screen.

Check out the full segment above.

How A Hijab-Friendly Brooklyn Salon Became A Space For Women’s Empowerment

Muslim cosmetologist Huda Quhshi used to lug her supplies around New York City, cutting and coloring women’s hair over sinks in crowded apartments. 

But Quhshi’s days of itinerant hairstyling are over. Last month, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bay Ridge, the 37-year-old realized her lifelong dream of opening a salon that caters entirely to women. Her salon, Le’Jemalik, has become a kind of sanctuary for women who want to let their hair down in a ladies-only space.

“It’s a place where you can come and feel relaxed, and just have a beautiful experience without worrying that a man is going to walk in,” Quhshi told The Huffington Post.

Le’Jemalik, which means “for your beauty” in Arabic, offers a full range of services, from hairstyling to nails, waxing and makeup. It even sells wedding dresses and offers regular seminars for beauty professionals looking to enhance their skills.

The salon hosted its grand opening on Jan. 29, with hundreds of visitors stopping by to glimpse the space, Quhshi said. It had already attracted a fair amount of media attention, not only as a business run by and for women but as a place where Muslim women, in particular, can feel safe and welcome.

Not all Muslim women cover their hair or wear hijabs. But those who do maintain a commitment to covering in front of men to whom they aren’t related. It’s a tradition upheld by some Orthodox Jewish women, as well.

Some salons have dividers or rooms in the back to accommodate women with these religious requirements. But Quhshi said she wasn’t aware of any other salons in New York City where the entire space is a men-free zone.

Men are allowed in the front waiting area of Le’Jemalik, but the actual service area lies behind a double door that only women may pass through. 

Quhshi said the salon has attracted many Muslim and Jewish clients since it opened. But she emphasized that “this space is for all women.”

“I’ve had women from other faiths tell me that they’re so excited about this space, even though they’re not Muslim,” she said. “They’re happy to be able to support a woman-run business and come here just because they want to feel comfortable.”

As a hijab-wearing Muslim woman of Yemeni descent, Quhshi said she hopes she can be an inspiration to other women who may have to overcome bias to achieve their goals. 

“I want to help other girls follow their dreams,” she said. “I’m definitely happy to empower other women and make other women feel like I’ve opened doors for them.”

Bill Maher Just Made A Very Serious Point About The Trump Administration ‘Circus’

Bill Maher warned people not to get distracted by the circus surrounding President Donald Trump’s administration on Friday.

The “Real Time” host admitted it was “fun to watch the wheels come off the Trump car” — using the president’s 77-minute “brain fart” of a news conference the previous day as an example. But it was only amusing “until we remember we’re riding in the back,” said Maher. “Then it’s not so fucking fun any more.”

Maher described the touting of Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor, as ambassador to Canada as merely one of several distraction tactics.

“While you’re watching the clown screw the pony, they’re breaking into your car,” said Maher.

As examples of the things people are being distracted away from, he cited the confirmation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s longtime adversary Scott Pruitt as its new chief and Michael Flynn’s resignation as national security adviser amid allegations he discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with the Russian ambassador in the weeks before Trump took office.

Giphy Adds 2,000 Sign Language GIFs To Its Library

American Sign Language is the main method of communication for Americans who are deaf or hearing impaired. It’s taught in some high schools and universities, but if you’re beyond those years, there’s still hope for learning ― and a simple one at that. 

Giphy has added more than 2,000 instructional sign language GIFs to its library, Mashable reports. The clips, which are free to access, demonstrate signs for everything from common sayings and expressions to cooking terms, clothing items and travel phrases.

Giphy cut the GIFs from episodes of Sign With Robert, an instructional video series whose host Robert DeMayo has been deaf since birth. His GIFs repeat the signs in an endless loop that’s easy to study, along with facial expressions that many may not realize are a key part of ASL

Husband Decorates Bedroom With 7,000 Handwritten Post-It Notes For His Wife

One dedicated husband just one-upped us all with a truly elaborate Valentine’s Day surprise for his wife.

Jason Brinley of Florence, Alabama decorated the bedroom he shares with his wife Jennifer with 7,000 (!!) Post-it notes listing the many he reasons he loves her and memories they’ve made together. 

Oh, and on top of that, he organized the sticky notes to create an 8-bit-style design (reminiscent of old-school Mario video games) with hearts and words like “love facts” and “I <3 you.” 

When Jennifer came home from work on Tuesday, the bedroom was totally transformed. She knew her husband had something up his sleeve for Valentine’s Day but she had no clue what to expect. 

“I absolutely couldn’t believe it! It was crazy. I knew he was doing something that was taking a lot of prep work, but I had no idea it was that,” she told The Huffington Post. “The best thing I could think of was that he was making me a board game. This goes so much further than that!”

Below, a sampling of the Post-it notes that Jennifer received. 

Between all of the writing and design preparation, the project took months to complete. Then Jason spent Tuesday hanging poster boards covered with the sticky notes on the walls. 

On Wednesday, Jennifer shared a photo of the finished product on Reddit. The post has been upvoted more than 5,600 times with more than 500 comments. 

For now, the Post-its are still on the wall as Jennifer slowly makes her way through each and every one. Afterwards, she plans to compile them all into a book.

“He really did think of everything,” she said.

Congressman Channels ‘Stranger Things’ To Blast Donald Trump’s America

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. And this is certainly one of those times, according to Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.).

On Thursday, the Democrat used the House floor to compare life under President Donald Trump’s administration to “The Upside Down” — the creepy parallel universe in Netflix’s supernatural drama “Stranger Things.”

Standing next to a sign of the show’s logo that was tweaked to read “Trump Things,” he lamented how under Trump “right is wrong, up is down, black is white.”

Cicilline cited the inconsistent decisions that the White House has made in the four weeks since Trump’s inauguration ― such as the signing of an executive order “to spend $ 20 billion on a border wall, while Flint, Michigan, still goes without clean drinking water.” “This is not a TV show, this is real life,” he said.

“We have a president unlike any we have ever known,” he continued. “And like Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Eleven, we must remain focused on the task at hand, and hold this administration accountable, so we can escape from our own version of ‘The Upside Down.’”

Watch Cicilline’s full speech in the clip above.

American Girl Announces Plans For Korean And Hawaiian Dolls

When American Girl unveiled its new collection on Tuesday featuring its very first boy doll, the news took the internet by storm. But we think Logan Everett’s introduction may have overshadowed another huge win for diversity. 

This week, the iconic doll makers also announced plans to release Native Hawaiian and Korean American characters in 2017.

One is a Korean American filmmaker named Z Yang (second doll from the left in the picture below), and the other is a Native Hawaiian girl named Nanea Mitchell who grew up during the start of World War II (third doll from the right).

Parents and kids have been asking American Girl for characters with “more experiences, more diversity, more interests,” Julie Parks, the company’s director of public relations, previously told The Huffington Post.

The company’s lineup of dolls for 2017 should challenge other toymakers to improve their inclusivity as well.

Super-fans of American Girl will recognize Z Yang, pictured above, as the star of American Girl’s YouTube series #AGZCREW, which has been running since 2015.

She uses her “creativity to connect with others,” the American Girl website says, “and her stories remind girls that everyone has a unique perspective to share ― even if it’s not perfect.”

Z will be available in spring, making her the second Asian American character to grace American Girl’s collection. The first was Ivy Ling, a Chinese American doll who grew up in San Francisco in the 1970s, according to NBC News. Ling was discontinued in 2014 after a seven-year run.

Nanea, pictured above, is a Hawaiian girl who grew up in 1941, during the time of the Pearl Harbor attacks and the start of World War II.

She is a part of American Girl’s BeForever series, which features characters from different eras throughout history, and is the first BeForever character to come dressed in shorts.

American Girl has previously had characters from the WWII era, but Nanea’s experience is “told from a really different perspective,” Stephanie Spanos, company spokesperson, said during a Facebook Live video.

Nanea’s stories teach the value of kokua ― a Hawaiian word that represents selflessness and helping others. She’ll be in stores this fall.

Philadelphia Dance Center Invited Dads To Ballet Class And The Results Will Warm Your Heart

A dance school in Philadelphia celebrated Valentine’s Day a bit differently this week and invited parents to join their kids’ classes.

The school asked moms to participate in students’ hip hop classes on the day before or after Valentine’s Day. Dads were invited to spend the evening of Feb. 14 dancing ballet with their daughters. 

And the results were nothing short of heartwarming.

Philadelphia Dance Center posted videos and photos of the night to their Facebook page, not expecting the clips to go viral. Within days, a video of dads pointing their toes and lifting their legs to “Waltz of the Flowers” from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite” racked up more than 9.8 million views.

Another video, viewed more than 400,000 times, showed dads learning how to pirouette across the floor.

The night was a huge success, both on the internet and in real life. After receiving such a big response from Facebook users who liked, shared and commented on the posts, Philadelphia Dance Center posted a message of gratitude to its Facebook Page.

”Thank you for recognizing the beauty, love, and joy that dance can bring into the world,” the message read. “It just proves that art, love and family are the international language. ❤”

The ‘Boyfriends Of Instagram’ Are The Real MVPs Of Social Media

In the age of personal brands and Instagram, it has become an integral part of modern life to show the world just how much fun you’re having.

And one community aims to honor the men behind the lens who make that happen.

Enter, the “Boyfriends of Instagram.”

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaate #boyfriendsofinstagram #surfsupbro

A post shared by Boyfriends Of Instagram (@boyfriends_of_insta) on

“Boyfriends of Instagram” is both a Facebook page and Instagram account which posts photos of ― you guessed it ― boyfriends taking pictures of their significant others and their friends.

The community pages were created by two men from Sydney, Australia, who want to remain anonymous, according to The Daily Dot. They originally created the pages to focus on boyfriends snapping pictures of girlfriends, but their submissions have grown to include anyone who’s taking a picture of anybody else.

Their Instagram and Facebook pages have a combined total of more than 45,000 followers, proving that getting that perfect Instagram angle is pretty relatable these days. 

Whether these unwitting photographers are taking a knee or sprawled across the floor, most of us (boyfriend, girlfriend or just a damn good friend) can’t deny that we’ve totally been there ― for the sake of our loved ones’ next profile picture.

And don’t let the snarky and sometimes condescending captions on “Boys of Instagram” fool you.

Anyone who takes the time to indulge their friends’ in a personal brand-promoting photo shoot is a true friend indeed. 

Check out these selfless MVPs below and be sure to take notes. You never know when you’ll be asked, “Can you take a picture of us, please?”

Street Artist Bambi Mocks Donald Trump With ‘Lie Lie Land’ Parody

Street artist Bambi uses Hollywood to take aim at President Donald Trump in her latest piece.

The anonymous artist painted the “Lie Lie Land” stencil — a parody of the promotional posters for the multi Golden Globes-winning movie “La La Land” — in Islington, north London, England, on Wednesday afternoon.

But instead of Ryan Gosling dancing with Emma Stone in the image, she switched it up to show Trump twirling with the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Theresa May.

The idea for the piece came about after seeing the movie’s posters “pasted everywhere in London,” Bambi told The Huffington Post via email Thursday.

“A happy couple dancing without a care in the world, this film was released during a dark political time in our world,” she said.

It follows her similar Trump-themed piece “Make America Sane Again,” which she painted in Camden, London, just days after his inauguration as president:

Emilia Clarke’s New Hair May Be For A Secret Not So Far, Far Away

Mother of Dragons! Khaleesi, aka Emilia Clarke, has a bangin’ new look, and it has us questioning everything. 

Here’s what Clarke used to look like: 

And here’s Khaleesi now:

Clarke must own some dragons because that new ‘do is fire.

The actress showed off her dramatic new bangs and bob at a pre-BAFTA party over the weekend …

And she showed the look off again on Instagram:

People are already speculating about what Sophie Turner’s BAFTA bruises mean for her “Game of Thrones” character, so does Clarke’s new look hint at the future of her character, Dany?

Probably not. First off, Clarke wears a wig on the show, and she’s already wrapped filming for Season 7 anyway. She celebrated the event by lip-syncing to R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” … as Mothers of Dragons are known to do.

The ‘do may mean something about her “Star Wars” role, however.

As Allure points out, the hairstyle could have something to do with the actress’ role in the upcoming Han Solo movie. The movie just started production, conveniently around the same time Clarke wrapped “Game of Thrones,” so it’s totally possible.

The “Star Wars” movie, which focuses on a young Han Solo, is set for release in 2018.

Of course, Clarke could just be trying out a new hairdo. Khaleesi does what she likes.

Either way, her hair is so hot it’d make a dragon wanna retire, man.

Apparently, ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7 Will Make Us Relive The 2016 Election

American Horror Story: The Entirety of 2016, Because You Haven’t Had Enough” is coming, according to Ryan Murphy.

The series co-creator did not appear to be joking ― we checked, and double-checked ― when he announced the theme in an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” with host Andy Cohen on Wednesday. 

Here are Murphy’s exact words:

“Well, I don’t have a title. But the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”

Asked whether there will be “a Trump,” our own personal Ghost of News Cycles Past said, “maybe.”

Other details about the horror anthology series’ Season 7 are scant. But the new installment will likely not follow campaign details exactly. In the past, the show has merely taken inspiration from real life, such as Season 6’s “Roanoke,” based on the former colony; “Hotel,” based loosely on Los Angeles’ eerie Cecil hotel; and “Coven,” set in the hometown of 19th-century alleged torturer Madame LaLaurie.

Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are already confirmed to appear, per Deadline, and we’re bound to see other familiar faces. Although which ones might play party nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clintonif they appear ― is hard to guess. 

Murphy’s announcement comes just one day after the team behind “Zero Dark Thirty” revealed an upcoming a miniseries about the election, a project that will likely follow events as they happened more closely.

America’s Top Fortune Cookie Writer Is Quitting

Donald Lau has been writing the messages on America’s fortune cookies for the past 30 years, but a severe case of writer’s block has caused him to pass his pen.

The chief fortune writer at Brooklyn-based Wonton Food Inc., the largest manufacturer of noodles, wrappers, and fortune cookies in the United States, has been training his successor for the past six months, according to Time magazine.

“I used to write 100 a year, but I’ve only written two or three a month over the past year,” he told the magazine.

Lau also serves as the company’s chief financial officer, so he will continue to work in that capacity when the new writer takes over.

The history of fortune cookies in America is quite murky, as both Chinese and Japanese immigrant populations have claimed ownership, writes Smithsonian Magazine’s Jesse Rhodes. Author Jennifer 8. Lee investigated the popular biscuit in her book, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, and found that the cookies are likely of Japanese origin, but they became associated with Chinese cultures after World War II.

“When Japanese Americans were forced into internment camps, their bakeries that produced the cookies were shuttered,” Rhodes writes of Lee’s findings. “Chinese entrepreneurs stepped in to fill the void and by the end of the war they were indelibly associated with fortune cookies, whose popularity had spread nationwide.” 

Lau tells NBC News in the video above that when he arrived working at the company, his English was best among the group, so he was given the job of writing the cookies’ fortunes.

“I guess I got the job by default,” he said.

Over the years, Lau said he wanted his fortune messages to make diners happy, a sentiment he’s passed onto his successor, James Wong. Diners can always take matters into their own hands ― Wonton Food Inc. offers custom fortune cookies that allow customers to write their own fortunes.
