It’s very, very strange.” The interview ignited fierce debate on Twitter, with users arguing whether her critique held any weight. Singer Tinashe has ignited conversation about colorism. Some people chalked up her statements to bitterness.But many Twitter users urged readers to look deeper. But if you’re a black woman, you’re either Beyoncé or Rihanna.

And it’s holding her back. “There are hundreds of [male] rappers that all look the same, that sound the same. “It’s about trying to find a balance where I’m a mixed woman, and sometimes I feel like I don’t fully fit into the black community; they don’t fully accept me, even though I see myself as a black woman. I am what I am.”And while the 24-year-old has caught the eye of her peers — Janet Jackson personally invited her to perform at the star’s tribute concert in 2015, and she was the opening act on Nicki Minaj’s “Pinkprint” tour — Tinashe feels the music business levies an unspoken cap on women of color. That disconnect is confusing sometimes. The R&B singer and songwriter spoke about the ways that “colorism” (discrimination based on skin color) has dampened her success as a black female musician.”There’s colorism involved in the black community, which is very apparent,” Tinashe said.

Mooney co-wrote the screenplay with Kevin Costello, while Dave McCarry — who previously wrote and directed for SNL — helmed the project. Watch the new teaser trailer above. The film earned near-unanimous praise at the Sundance Film Festival, where it had its world premiere in January. Though they don’t appear at length in the teaser, Claire Danes, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Andy Samberg, and Michaela Watkins have supporting roles. Hamill, best known for his role as Luke Skywalker across several Star Wars films, joins the SNL actor for several scenes in the clip, which also features costumed characters (including a plush bear and a masked humanoid figure) duking it out in the middle of a barren desert landscape, what appears to be a bunker fit for an apocalyptic event, and several sequences that employ a stylized mixture of hand-drawn animation and live-action characters.

Demi Moore opened up about something personal, but that she felt was “important to share.”
“I sheared off my front teeth,” she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Monday night. Show Full Article “I would love to say it was like skateboarding or something really kind of like cool, but I think it’s really something that’s important to share because I think it’s, literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in America which is stress.”
Moore shared a photo of her missing teeth with Fallon and his audience, in addition to a funny video she shot using a helium voice filter in the dentist office getting replacements. “This movie is gonna be huge!”
Watch the interview in the clip above. “I love Zoe Kravitz,” Fallon said of Moore’s costar as he slipped into a helium-fueled Donald Trump impersonation. It was almost like it fell out and my warranty was up.”
Inspired by her helium video, Fallon pulled out balloons so they could carry out a conversation about her new movie, Rough Night, in high-pitched chipmunk voices. The actress said her children love seeing her without her front teeth because it makes her “look more vulnerable and more human.”
Moore remained in good spirits as she poked fun at herself and gave thanks to the miracle of “modern dentistry.”
“I literally, like, knocked it out,” she said. “I knocked it out.

Miller and Chris Pratt, but who had the weirdest reaction to the tuna? They’re Type-N blood. Obviously, George and Gil have very eclectic pop culture tastes and they have a lot of opinions on things. Truly, we’ll be like, “Can you pass the sugie?”
MULANEY: It’s the most fun way to talk. Completely unrelated to the show. So who did you not get who would be your dream guest, dead or alive? KROLL: And the rest of that show, I thought I had broken my wrist.
KROLL: The truth is that George and Gil would identify with that because they both have bad blood. KROLL: I think it would give George and Gil each hope that even though Clooney isn’t as old as these guys, they’d think he’s their contemporary. He then rolled his way to what he thought was back to the table, but it ended up being off of the stage. They’d think that it’s not too late for them to marry human rights lawyers who are unbelievably beautiful and have twins. And we called this guy who’s known as the Broadway doctor. And he was the best. MULANEY: It’s not being diplomatic. KROLL: And Gil’s making a big play for Linda Tripp. We had a good half hour in our dressing room with Alan before the show, just talking. MULANEY: Stress the wrong syllable. KROLL: I guess certain people’s blood when it’s in their body, it’s blue until it’s oxidized, and then it turns red. It’s really hard. And not George Junior. KROLL: Oh, I don’t know! John Slattery was doing another Broadway play at that moment. MULANEY: And we had to get a waiver from Playbill and Equity saying that we are aware and they are aware that they’re not our actual understudies and can never be held accountable. But yeah, RuPaul and Bernie Sanders. KROLL: He was on like a press tour, and we were like, we’re gonna kill Chris Pratt with food poisoning, and we’re going to bury three franchises. KROLL: But it’s all KISS stuff. Miller at length described a tragedy in his early life, and so he’s slowly describing it, and Gil chimed in, “Do you do a lot of improvising on Silicon Valley?” And that was maybe the hardest I ever laughed. MULANEY: And I hadn’t seen Hannibal in a while, and he was telling us how he’s now a landlord in Chicago. Was it Olivia Wilde? MULANEY: Oh, yeah. I danced with F. So top three guests, if you had to pick? It’s a hang, and everyone wants to do it.” Which is the best Paul Shaffer comment ever, to say that this is the new Soupy Sales Show. George St. “Being on Broadway and doing our particular show, to me, was what I’d always dreamed show business would be,” Kroll says. As Mulaney puts it: “You don’t have to get up early, and you go to a place at night, and it’s a couple hours.”
With Oh, Hello on Broadway hitting Netflix today, EW sat down with Mulaney and Kroll to reflect on some of the most memorable moments from their Broadway run and to speculate about what future projects George and Gil might have on the horizon. MULANEY: We did 138 shows. Did we have someone who was pregnant who got the tuna? And everything about it was truly what I had dreamed of when I was a kid and was like, ‘I want to be in show business.’”
Plus, doing a Broadway show has its perks. KROLL: Chris Pratt ate huge amounts of tuna fish, and the tuna was up in the rafters right below the lights for like three hours before the show, and it gets lowered down. Who I think is the ambassador to the Vatican. Or was that on the road, maybe? MULANEY: Name them George and Gil. But that was very cool to hear that from one of the hepcats of the world. And it was the most exciting thing. MULANEY: He fell off the stage, kind of onto the legs of someone in the front row. I’d say top three moments, maybe. So you’re now on a Broadway stage doing bits with people. It was probably pretty fragrant at that point. What is the actual process of booking some of these people? [Laughs] But it was really fun when we had people outside of entertainment, like Congressman Barney Frank, or when Marcia Clark did the show. MULANEY: No, she had just had her baby. NICK KROLL: Offstage. For most of the fall, he was running for president, and then he was not anymore. It was great to catch up with Hannibal while also being like, “What the hell are you talking about, Hannibal?”
KROLL: And we had Reggie Watts on, and Reggie told a joke that Gil found very funny, and so he slid back in his chair and fell off his chair. It was amazing to talk to anyone about anything. So you mentioned T.J. And then he did it, had a blast, and then was like, “I want to come back and do it again.” And that, to me, was the coolest thing, that our hero wanted to come back and play more. So if you guys are game, we want to know what George and Gil would think of a few current hot topics. and just started throwing up. I think there were four or five nights where we would pull a guest from the audience because we didn’t have somebody booked. Not feuds with people. Geegland Clooney. So my wife got me this pill you take if you have food poisoning and you have to stand and speak without vomiting.
KROLL: I think they’d be great. His favorite color is clear. Oh, Hello ran through January, earning rave reviews and attracting an enviable list of celebrity guests — Steve Martin, who appears in the Netflix special, included. If you missed Oh, Hello’s Broadway run last winter, you’re in luck: A filmed version of John Mulaney and Nick Kroll’s geriatric stage show is now streaming on Netflix. MULANEY: They’re going to do The Amazing Race as a four-person group with Newt Gingrich and his wife, Calista. MULANEY: And they both tested positive for Zima. We were deep into the run, and I woke up at about 5 a.m. stuck around. It’s been about a decade since the two comedians and longtime friends started performing as the elderly New Yorkers George St. Which I guess was like a show people would just go hang out at. MULANEY: And George’s blood is clear. Matthew Broderick was the guest that night, and I’m such a huge fan of his, and I was so excited to meet him that I was able to put the food poisoning out of my mind for some of the show. MULANEY: George is making a hard play for Linda Sarsour. Because it’s a very specific kind of guy, where you think of the era of Hannah and Her Sisters and stuff like that. They have Zima. And there was definitely a moment where Chris ate a ton of tuna. But he still didn’t want to do “Too Much Tuna.” But Bernie Sanders and RuPaul Charles were my top two. MULANEY: Literally. MULANEY: Yeah. We asked for money from people. For example, the Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud. And after the show got some momentum and it started going and we were getting a little press, then a lot of people wanted to do it. MULANEY: They’re selling like KISS goblets and stuff. Just everybody at the top of their game. Ourselves, our assistant, our producers, managers we work with, everyone really went out and we just cast a wide net. KROLL: And we had Itzhak Perlman! Murray Abraham. We’d been trying to get him to be on Kroll Show to no avail, and then we got him for opening night of the show. MULANEY: It was very fragrant. KROLL: T.J. I think they would win. Over the course of the Broadway run, you guys accumulated a really impressive list of guest stars. KROLL: We never got Bernie Sanders. MULANEY: Warm tuna! But we also would have friends of ours, like Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Jason Mantzoukas, Hannibal Buress, all the people that we started with. KROLL: We had Bob the Drag Queen, who won Drag Race, who was great and really funny. MULANEY: Well, they would say…
KROLL: One for each. MULANEY: It’s a steep drop! And when the tuna came down after being under those lights, I was like, this is the grossest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Which was also incredibly fun. I’d say every week we went to try to get to Bernie Sanders. Ours is two old men babies, talking to each other. I think Tony Danza’s people reached out and said he had heard about the show and wanted to come do it. MULANEY: And we’re Tom Snyder guys, so it was tough. KROLL: It’s the best. Show Full Article What about George and Amal Clooney’s twin babies? Pregnant or otherwise. Not Zika. MULANEY: They would be thrilled that [star Gal Gadot] was Israeli and that she did her service in Israel. It’s like the new Soupy Sales Show. Not George Clooney Junior. Geegland (Mulaney) and Gil Faizon (Kroll), and after years of pranking guests with too much tuna on Kroll Show, George and Gil made their Broadway debut at the Lyceum Theater in September. (Here’s a hint: Newt Gingrich may or may not be involved.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So six months after closing night, do you still find yourself slipping into the George and Gil voices? Unlike that Natalie Portman, who left when she was young. But also I think RuPaul was in L.A., and we weren’t going to give anyone any money. Yeah, we picked a random Australian journalist out of the crowd in D.C. Also, no one wants that tuna. [Laughs]
KROLL: Letterman did our final show, and for us, knowing a guy who basically seems like he doesn’t want to do anything, that he was willing to do our show was really cool. The drink from the past. KROLL: Well, there was one day where John got food poisoning. And Gil Faizon Clooney. Itzhak Perlman. KROLL: They’re really just vendors. That kind of guy. It’s really rare, and you’re a universal hemorrhager. KROLL: And we had different versions of it. You drop the vowels…
KROLL: Drop the vowels, like “Br’dway.” Drop a vowel, shorten a consonant. I think he started to get a sense of what our process was, and it was just the most exciting thing. If they can sign in through their AOL account, that’s the question. MULANEY: The two elusive socialists. How about Wonder Woman? Oh, Hello is streaming now on Netflix. And Alan Alda just typified it beautifully. MULANEY: They’re also getting involved with Gene Simmons for merchandising. He started in the theater. So what’s next for George and Gil? Gil’s blood is brown like his bar mitzvah theme. MULANEY: T.J. And then you do the show every night, and then people started coming to the show who are people you respect, and then because of the format of the show, they would do it. He started as an improviser. MULANEY: And Paul Shaffer did the show, and afterward he was like, “This is great. I was like, this is not a funny prank. I think it’s how couples have some weird baby talk or something. And then I don’t think we reached out to Tony Danza. My wife called him, and he said, “There’s no way he’s performing today.” And she’s like, “There’s no understudy.” And he was like, “Oh, okay, then he has to perform.”
KROLL: What’s funny is that our understudies were Jon Hamm and John Slattery. He was the matinee of our last show, and he stuck around and just hung out backstage and had our prop master make him a tuna sandwich. “We had tech rehearsals and vocal training and proper wardrobe — costumes, hair, and makeup. And then we had months of great guests. KROLL: And they say this is the year they’re going to get on Facebook. Alan Alda, from the moment we started doing the characters a decade ago, the way we described them were Upper West Side, quote-unquote “legendary bachelors” who were obsessed with Alan Alda. KROLL: Who else did we have? JOHN MULANEY: We always do the voices and have for 10 years. She was pregnant and got on stage, and the tuna came out and she was like, “Get this away from me.” She wanted no part of it. KROLL: Who’s not a patriot and does not support Israel. [Laughs]
So how do you get the perfect George and Gil voice?
And so, the resistance soldiers on. Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. Rowling, who is as vocal in her criticism of Trump as King, offered to send him screenshots of the tweets through direct messaging. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) June 13, 2017

I may have to kill myself.

1 or 2 on a call sheet for 24 episodes of a show is hard, and I had just come out of doing [Hamilton] every day for two years.”
If it weren’t obvious from his varied resume, Diggs is a true multi-hyphenate — and as such, he understood that committing to a lead role on television wouldn’t leave much time for him to stay involved in his other projects, whether in films or in the recording studio or on tour with Clipping. “But having done black-ish, I was watching what a grind it is, particularly on Tracee [Ellis Ross] and Anthony [Anderson]. “People had been pitching sitcoms to me to star in a lot, even before black-ish,” Diggs says. So it’s a win-win for Diggs — and for viewers. Hamilton alum Daveed Diggs has a staggering number of projects in the works, from recent arcs on black-ish and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to his upcoming roles in the film Wonder and the TV adaptation of Snowpiercer to his ongoing music career as a solo artist and part of the noise-rap group Clipping. “At the first stages, I was just waiting for somebody to call me and ask me my opinion or tell me what to do,” he says. Through their shared agent, Diggs met The Mayor’s creator Jeremy Bronson (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon). “[My agent] was like, ‘Well, do you want to be an executive producer for this pilot?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what that means.’ And he goes, ‘That’s all right, nobody does!’” Diggs recalls with a laugh.

The story of Diggs’ involvement with The Mayor, though, starts with what he didn’t want to get involved with. Don’t forget to subscribe for exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW. The premise appealed to his “rap nerd instincts”: “At the time, we didn’t really know where it was going to be set, and I started spouting off ideas like, ‘Okay, if you set it in Memphis, which is a cool town, the music is going to be totally different than if we set it in Baltimore.’ I’m fascinated with the regionality of rap music.”
But even after they’d put together their pitch for the show and ABC picked it up, learning what a producer actually does was still a learning experience for Diggs. Show Full Article Being No. And by not starring in The Mayor (or any other sitcom), it turns out Diggs has been able to combine at least two of those passions he’s been trying to juggle: He and his Clipping bandmates, William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, will create all the original music for the show. “I didn’t know that I was the one who was supposed to be calling!”
Fortunately, he’s got the hang of it now. ET this fall on ABC. But the thing he seems most excited about during a recent phone interview with EW isn’t another starring role: It’s his job as an executive producer on ABC’s fall sitcom The Mayor. “My brain was firing like crazy when we were talking about it,” he says. The show centers on a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office to boost his popularity and is surprised to find that not only does he win, but he’s good at it. The Mayor will air on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. RELATED: Hamilton: Before They Were Stars

Stone said that later in the series, which continues the next three nights, that he did ask about the hacking specifically and cyberwarfare in general.But as Stone went on to talk about how he was surprised that Putin didn’t seem angry given how he has been “abused” in the press, the audience began to react with groans and laughter. Stone demurred that it was politeness to an extremely busy man and curiosity about such a captivating figure. Colbert wondered if it was possible for Stone to be critical of Putin or “does he have your dog in a cage some place?” Given the director’s ardent support of free speech, Colbert appeared genuinely befuddled by Stone’s seemingly uncritical take on Putin. “Let’s talk about Vladimir Putin.”And thus began what ultimately became a sometimes tense conversation between Stephen Colbert and Oliver Stone on Monday’s “The Late Show.” The “JFK” and “Platoon” filmmaker was on to discuss his new Showtime series, “The Putin Interviews,” which began airing Monday night. It was important, Stone said, that Putin “believed I would give him a fair hearing.”But when it appeared in a clip from the series that Stone was taking at face value Putin’s dismissal of the notion that the Russians interfered with the presidential election, Colbert pushed him on the point, wondering why he didn’t ask any follow-up questions.

It’s not the first time he’s been the target of a rogue item, and it’s not the first time he’s been publicly exposed for not knowing the lyrics to this song. “But then, to my surprise, I hear the first chorus and it’s him singing in Spanish!” Fonsi remembers. “I definitely didn’t tell him to do that.”
Show Full Article Over the weekend, Justin Bieber joined the millions of Americans who love the hit song “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi but don’t know the Spanish lyrics. At one concert in May, he told the audience, “I don’t know the words so I say, ‘Dorito,’” or “burrito” or “blah blah blah.”His not knowing the lyrics is even more puzzling considering, according to Fonsi, it was his idea to sing the Spanish in the first place. In an interview with EW, the Latin star said he thought Bieber would sing it in English. After he told the crowd at Summerburst Music Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, “I can’t do ‘Despacito.’ I don’t even know it,” a disgruntled fan chucked an object — a shoe or a water bottle, maybe — at him.
