Original pink ranger surprises new ‘Power Rangers’ cast during interview

During a   Toronto   press junket for the Dean Israelite-directed action movie, the actress   who played the pink ranger on the Fox Kids series from 1993 to 1995 dropped in on an interview with stars   Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin, and Dacre Montgomery, posing as a reporter for The Daily Hive. The Lionsgate adaptation — which also stars Bryan Cranston, Bill Hader, Elizabeth Banks, and pop star Becky G — hits theaters nationwide March 24.

Emma Watson defines feminism following ‘Vanity Fair’ photo backlash

It’s about liberation. It’s about equality. Photograph by Tim Walker. There, she described feminism as about “gender equality, across the board.”
“I   think the word is really difficult because it seems to inherently address a preferential treatment of the feminine over the masculine because it has the feminine in the word, and I   think that’s a real oversight and misunderstanding,” she said. “This isn’t just girls are better than boys, boys are better than girls. This is just everyone deserves a fair chance.”

Viola Davis explains why she acts: ‘I want people to be seen’

And I feel like if one audience member is shifted in any way possible, I’ve done my job,” she said. Despite a skyrocketing career and a recent Oscar to add to her many other awards — including an Emmy and a Tony — Viola Davis admits to having a chip on her shoulder. “I’m still trying to take care of that chip on my shoulder, by the way. I think it was the height of my anger; that chip on my shoulder,” she told a crowd at Harvard University’s Sander Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Saturday evening, where she was was honored with the school’s 2017 Artist of the Year award during Harvard’s Cultural Rhythms Festival. It was mainly because I felt my voice as an artist was being stifled,” she told the adoring audience who gave her several standing ovations. “I can’t promise that I won’t do some crap every once in a while, because I’ve done some crap, let me tell you,” she joked. “I think Picasso is the one who said ‘I paint because I want to show people what’s going on behind the eyes.’ ”
The South Carolina native, who was raised in poverty in Central Falls, Rhode Island, told the audience — most of whom were Harvard students — that their job was to “bear witness.”
“Your job is to come open and willing to transform, and that’s the power of what we do. “I spent so many years at Juilliard just wanting to beat somebody up.

Father John Misty debuted his latest track off the upcoming   Pure Comedy   on   Saturday Night Live,   where he performed “Total Entertainment Forever,” a song that opens with the line, “Bedding Taylor Swift every night inside the Oculus Rift.”
He follows in the footsteps of another musician who has referenced the pop star in that way: Kanye West, who rapped, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous” on   The Life of Pablo’s “Famous.” That lyric made headlines as soon as West premiered the track at a Madison Square Garden event in February 2016, something Misty — né Josh Tillman — is likely mocking here.

‘SNL’ stings Republicans who won’t stand up against Trump

and Eric, during Weekend Update. Show Full Article In lieu of another Donald Trump sketch, Saturday Night Live put the entire Republican party on blast Saturday night for not standing up against the president. “Republican Movie Trailer,” a digital short that aired immediately after the monologue, played with the notion that in a divided nation where the president has “unchecked powers” there should be “one Republican who decided enough is enough” and puts “country over party.”
But in the conceit of the sketch, he or she doesn’t exist — and the fake trailer replaced any reference to this person with a quickly read “TBD,” before also noting that the pretend movie is “definitely not about Paul Ryan.”
SNL branched out in its attacks on the current leadership Saturday night: the show opened by skewering attorney general Jeff Sessions (played by Kate McKinnon) and also featured a spoof of Trump’s son, Donald Jr.
