    Emma Watson has said she prefers to call herself "self-partnered" rather than single as she approaches her 30th birthday. Watson, 29, who rose to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, coined the phrase in an interview with British Vogue in which she discussed the pressures of turning 30. [snip] Speaking of how she had never believed the "'I'm happy single' spiel," she added: "It took me a long time, but I'm very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered." The new phrase is reminiscent of actor Gwyneth Paltrow's use of the term "conscious uncoupling" to describe...

    Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood Producer who is known for projects such as Beauty and the Beast and the Twilight Saga, called for minor teen high school boys to be murdered in a violent, gruesome manner. Mr. Morrissey joined the hate-filled media and piled on the Covington Catholic students after deceptively edited videos of the teens were posted to Twitter accusing them of harassing a Native American man. Full video of the incident shows the teens did nothing wrong — they were ambushed by blacks calling them “crackers” and the Native Indian man is a far left activist who harassed the...

    Beauty and the Beast is joining the billion-dollar club at the worldwide box office. Director Bill Condon‘s update of Disney‘s classic 1991 animated film likely will achieve the milestone by Thursday. (The entry of The Fate of the Furious in a handful of foreign markets on Wednesday is clouding the forecast.) On Tuesday, Beauty, starring Emma Watson as Belle, grossed $9.7 million for a worldwide total of $993.2 million. The tentpole has earned $435.9 million domestically and $557.3 million overseas, led by China ($85.2 million) and the U.K. ($75.3 million). Disney has plenty of reason to celebrate. Beauty and the...

    While Disney was creating magic onscreen with their live-action retelling of the Beauty and the Beast tale, Indian artisans were weaving their own form of magic offscreen through Belle’s wardrobe. Sinéad O’Sullivan, assistant costume designer of the movie, will have you know that doing justice to the eighteenth century aesthetic is no small feat. When it came to commissioning exquisite French floral designs for Belle’s costumes, she spread her web wide and of course, caught on to the good artisans of Bhuj, Gujarat. As part of her commitment to the ‘Who made my clothes’ initiative, O’Sullivan shared the story of...

    Disney’s massive box office hit “Beauty and the Beast” will open in Malaysia after all, and “with no cuts.” Yes, that means the film’s highly publicized “gay moment” will remain intact over there.“We are pleased to announce that Disney’s ‘Beauty And The Beast’ has now been approved to be released in Malaysia with no cuts, with a PG-13 rating,” the Walt Disney Company of Malaysia told the New Straits Times. “Be our guest when the film opens in Malaysian cinemas on March 30, 2017.”Malaysian theater giant Golden Screen Cinemas confirmed the news on Twitter this morning: BEAUTY AND THE...

    National Review ^ | March 17, 2017 | Armond White
    The classic 1946 French version of Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bęte) featured an opening epigraph that explained the concept behind director Jean Cocteau’s live-action fairy tale: “Children believe what we tell them. They have complete faith in us.” That faith gets compromised in the new live-action musical Beauty and the Beast. Its attempt to sneakily indoctrinate children (and adults) into Disney Corporation banality recasts the nature of parent-child (and Hollywood-consumer) relations so that that bond is subsumed in state-sponsored political correctness. This new version — with its feminist Belle (Emma Watson), a crude, chauvinist-male Beast (Dan...

    MOSCOW — Children under age 16 won’t be able to go to the new Disney film “Beauty and the Beast” in Russia because it includes a gay character, the Russian Culture Ministry said Tuesday. The ministry told The Associated Press in an emailed statement that its decision for the 16-plus rating followed petitions by lawmaker Vitaly Milonov, known for his ultraconservative views, petitioned for the live-action film to be banned. In a letter released Saturday by the RIA Novosti news agency, Milonov protested the screening of a movie that disseminates “overt and shameless propaganda of sin and sexual perversion under...

    For the past few days, the Internet has been exploding over the news that Beauty and the Beast (in theaters March 17) has what director Bill Condon called Disney’s first “exclusively gay moment.” In the remake of the 1991 animated film, the character of LeFou (Josh Gad), aide-de-camp to the villain Gaston (Luke Evans), appears to be in love with his captain. Thanks to a second, new character, LeFou’s storyline resolves in a moment of self-acceptance. But Condon has since said that his quote was “overblown,” and indeed, once audiences see the film, they’ll likely decide that the so-called controversy...

    Children in Russia will be barred from watching Disney’s live-action movie “Beauty and the Beast” due to its inclusion of a gay character. Russia’s culture minister Vladimir Medinsky has imposed a 16+ rating on the film after it was alleged that the film contravened the country’s law prohibiting “gay propaganda” aimed at minors. The rating is now prominently displayed on Disney’s Russian website.

    The folks who gave us Mickey Mouse and Goofy have decided it’s time for your children to enjoy same-sex romance while they slurp down their Fruit Loops. Disney just broadcast their very first gay cartoon kiss. It happened during the second season of “Star vs The Forces of Evil,” a cartoon broadcast on Disney XD. An audience scene shows two guys kissing and a later scene show two ladies sharing an intimate moment.

    When her father Bill ran for the presidency in 1992, Chelsea Clinton was a gawky 12-year-old with braces and a mop of crinkly hair, ill at ease in front of the cameras. Some 15 years later, her mother Hillary has assigned her daughter a crucial role in the family's latest White House campaign as the former First Lady hopes to firm up support among women voters with a "mum strategy".

We were there when the former president greeted her and then when he introduced her to the many guests attending the CGI. As both President Clinton and Mrs. Bush spoke, pictures were posted on a large screen in the room. I took a few pics of those images to give you and idea of what the CGI is and what the attendees saw as...
