Maine Mendoza: I don't need to be what I'm not

If there is one thing Maine Mendoza wouldn't want to do, it would be conforming to the standards set by the entertainment industry. 


Through her 24 July blog entry entitled "That's How It Works", Mendoza revealed that she was wondering about an incident, which she didn't specify, and was unhappy with the answer given to her. 

"[...] the only thing that she said to me was "That's how it (show business) works". That response made me question everything; it was the kind of response I did not expect to come from someone who is very perceptive when it comes to these things – also from someone who's very close to me. It was shocking though I did try to apprehend her perspective, but in the end I still failed to get her stance about the whole matter." 


She further explained that the whole thing narrows down to the issue of pleasing people, which is the one thing that she said she will never do. 

"We are in a world full of pretentious beings. Especially in my case, I am living in a world full of barbies– and no, it ain't fantastic. Some people have really mastered the art of pretension; and it is up to us to determine what's real and what's not. [...] it is something that I could not and would never understand. Why bother trying to be someone you are not when you can just be yourself? Why seek for people's approval on how to live your life? Why let other people's opinions define you? Is that how it should work?" she asked. 


Mendoza stressed that she doesn't want to pretend to be someone she is not and do things she's not willing to do just to be loved and accepted. "I would never change who I am just to conform to the norms of this industry. Sure, "that's how it works", but I am who I am; and it's up to people if they will like me or not," she emphasised. 

Mendoza ended her post by reminding people that they are not born to please everybody and that everybody should live the life they want. 


"Remember that there will always be people who will love you; but it's best to be loved for who you really are than who you are trying to be," she said.

1 Dead, 5 Injured in London's Russell Square Knife Attack: Police

One woman is dead, and 5 injured after a man carrying a knife attacked people in London's Russell Square late Wednesday night, Metropolitan Police said.

"A man was arrested at 22:39 hours and a Taser was discharged by one of the arresting officers," police said in a statement.

The man is 19 years old, but his name was not released. At a press conference early Thursday morning, Metropolitan Police Asst. Commissioner Mark Rowley said, "This was a tragic incident resulting in the death of one woman and five others being injured. Early indications suggest that mental health was a factor in this horrific attack.

But Rowley said terrorism isn't being ruled out. "However we are keeping an open mind regarding the motive and terrorism remains one line of inquiry being explored," he said.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, "Police have spoken to him and are seeking to establish the full facts including motives for this attack."

Police officers and London Ambulance Service attended to the scene. Additional police units have been deployed to the area to "provide reassurance," police said.

Fashion Vlogger Marina Joyce Said She's Ok, After The Hashtag #savemarinajoyce

Some people questioned the notoriety of fashion vlogger Marina Joyce after the hashtag #savemarinajoyce gained momentum Tuesday. Some feared for the safety of the British YouTuber after her latest video was apparently encrypted with calls for help.

Even though some fans think she was kidnapped and being abused, and others assumed she was on drugs, the fashion vlogger spoke out a day before the trend went viral. “This is very sweet guys but I’m okay seriously <3 I love you all so much #savemarinajoyce,” she wrote Monday.

She then shared a fun tweet about exercise that eventually changes into an extra-large pizza. After that, she shared a message of a family member who apparently asked what she was doing with her life. She responded, “It’s a surprise.”

But fans weren’t swayed. Some think there is something wrong with the blonde fashionista.

The video in question, “Date Outfit Ideas,” garnered nearly 300,000 views from her 600,000 YouTube subscribers. Fans became worried about the vlogger after she appeared to have bruises on her arms and had a faraway look in her eyes. Most suspicious of all was that it faintly like she said “help me” in the beginning of the clip.

In a thread on Lipstick Alley, one fan explained the theory that Joyce was possible being held hostage and controlled by an abusive boyfriend or kidnapper. “The change in her behavior was almost instant and sudden. Her normally bubbly and very assured and confident affectation has been replaced with a shy, stuttering, disassociated demeanor. Viewers have also noticed the consistently wide-eyed, various bruises pop up on spaces all over her body, which oddly enough are pretty prominently displayed in most of her recent video,” the blogger wrote. “This, people theorize, could be part of her secret efforts to ask her viewership for help without alerting the person who is controlling her.”

Missy Elliott Reveals What It Was Like to Watch Michelle Obama Rap 'Get Ur Freak On' for Carpool Karaoke

Michelle Obama’s Carpool Karaoke ride featured a very special surprise passenger – Missy Elliott! 

The First Lady’s much anticipated appearance went public on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden. The trailer promised some “Single Ladies” moves that would do Beyoncé proud, but fans were not expecting Mrs. Obama to show off her formidable flow by rapping “Get Ur Freak On” with the hip hop pioneer herself. 

Elliott sat down exclusively with PEOPLE to reveal what it was like to rap and roll with the FLOTUS. 

The pair first met back in March, when Elliott joined Obama for the keynote speech at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. Though Elliott admits she was nervous, the First Lady’s warm welcome quickly put her at ease. “I remember her holding her arms out and coming towards me to hug me,” recalls Elliott, 45. “Everything ran through my mind like, ‘Wait ‘til my mama sees this! Wait 'til my cousins see this!’” 

Things got even more presidential for Elliott in June when the Carpool Karaoke production took her all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. 

“Just when you think you’ve reached the highest place, you find yourself pulling up to the White House and you’re walking inside a building that you’ve known about since you were a little, little kid,” she marvels. “They’re taking you around and showing you [things] – even down to the plates that each president might have eaten on. It’s like, 'Wow, can’t believe it.’” 

It’s hard to imagine a more intimidating situation than rapping in a car with the First Lady while surrounded by a bunch of cameras, but Elliott took it all in stride. “I was probably more nervous about forgetting my words,” she admits. “[I was worried] I’d start mixing 'Work It’ with 'The Rain’ with 'Get Ur Freak On.’ But I wasn’t nervous about being in the car because they made me feel like they knew me.” 

Turns out Mrs. Obama knows Missy Elliott – and her music – extremely well. 

“When we got in the car and I saw her rapping 'Get Ur Freak On,’ it kind of bugged me out!” Elliott confirms that the FLOTUS indeed knew all the words. “I know for a fact that it was all over my face like, 'Wait, is she rapping this?’ But that goes to show you just how cool she is. People hold her in such a high regard – as you should – but she’s so down to Earth. I was just sitting in the back like, 'I gotta be dreaming. This ain’t even real. Is somebody going to wake me up and say, 'You overslept.’” 

Safety concerns kept the car confined to the White House grounds, but that didn’t put a damper on the fast and loose mood. 

“The way she is, you feel like you can just ride down the highway with the windows rolled down and be chilling with one of your friends,” Elliott tells PEOPLE. “But at the end of the day she is the First Lady so they probably thought it wasn’t a good idea to ride on the regular road.” 

Famous for her elaborate music videos, Elliott says the taping was over in the blink of an eye. “It was cool because I didn’t know it was going to be one take. I’m thinking, 'We’re just rehearsing!’ And then they’re like, 'OK, we’re done!’ I was like, 'Whoa, wait a minute! That was the quickest I ever shot a video!” 

The unforgettable TV moment was executive produced by AOL’s MAKERS.com, the same organization responsible for the First Lady’s girl power anthem “This Is For My Girls,” – inspired by the Let Girls Learn initiative and the 62 million girls around the world who do not have access to education. Mrs. Obama and Corden duetted on the song for Carpool Karaoke, but the recorded version features vocal appearances from some of the biggest names in the popular music, including Elliott herself. 

“I wanted to be in support of Let Girls Learn so girls across the world could have education to become leaders and great mothers,” Elliott explains. “I don’t want my legacy to just be about music that I’ve done. I want it to be about great causes like this.” 

In addition to aiding a worthy cause, Missy got the once-in-a-lifetime chance to get to know the First Lady on a personal level. “It’s one thing when you’re watching on TV but she’s so down to Earth. She’s like one of my aunts that would be at a cook-out. She’s so cool you almost forget! You almost gotta remind yourself, 'Hold up, this is the First Lady. You ain’t at the family reunion!’”

Chrissy Teigen Breastfeeds Baby at the NBA Finals

Yes, you can breastfeed anywhere — even at the NBA playoffs. And that’s exactly what new mom Chrissy Teigen did for her 2-month-old, Luna Simone Stephens, backstage at the Warriors vs. Cavaliers game in Oakland on Thursday night.

Mom and baby spent most of the game behind the scenes, where dad John Legend joined them after he sang the Star Spangled Banner at the start of the game to read Goodnight Moon and snuggle.

That’s when he captured the sweet moment of a topless Teigen, former Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl and FABLife co-host, nursing baby Luna on a couch. Teigen then covered the image with a little red heart and sent it out on Snapchat — something she’s done before to showcase her milk skills, such as in early May, when she Snapchatted a pic of herself feeding Luna on a breastfeeding pillow as she was being glammed up on the set of a photo shoot.

When it comes to promoting proud, positive images of breastfeeding, Teigen is in some great fellow-model company — with Nicole Trunfio, who nursed her baby Zion on the cover of Elle Australia in 2015; Olivia Wilde, who breastfed baby Otis in a glossy Glamour spread in 2014; Gisele Bundchen, who famously Instagrammed a pic of herself nursing her 1-year-old while simultaneously being primped by hair and makeup people in 2013.

Surprise, Surprise: Kim K. Just Posted Another NSFW Pic

“What’s Kim Kardashian been up to lately?” we hear you ask (or not).

Well, as it turns out, she’s been working on a “secret project,” and — surprise! — it’s got something to do with wearing no clothes.

The 35-year-old shared a sexy teaser snap to her Instagram account featuring her famous bare butt.

“#secretproject coming soon,” she captioned the snap.

This isn’t the first time the reality star has bared all on social media.

A few months ago, Kim shared a nude selfie with her 72.2 million followers.

The backlash she received — from both fans and fellow celebs — prompted her to post another topless snap with actress and model Emily Ratajkowski.

Quentin Tarantino’s Music Supervisor Mary Ramos on Telling Stories Through Music

On Saturday Quentin Tarantino’s music supervisor, Mary Ramos, will be a keynote speaker at music biz event Midem in Cannes, France. Variety spoke to her about her 23-year career, including her work on Tarantino’s movies — from “Pulp Fiction” to “The Hateful Eight” — and other pics, such as this year’s best-picture Oscar-winner “Spotlight.”

So is Tarantino different from other directors? “Every director I work with has their own unique storytelling style. They’ll tell a story filtered through what’s important to them. It’s my job to help them tell their story through music,” Ramos says.

“What makes Quentin standout is his bold use of music. Often times it is a main character in his movies. The reason is the referential element to his storytelling. We respond to Quentin because music is so much in the forefront and it’s such a bold use, like using David Bowie in a World War II movie. That’s bold, and incredible, and remarkable,” she says, referring to “Cat People (Putting Out the Fire)” in “Inglourious Basterds.”

Often tracks that Tarantino uses in his films have been chosen because they were previously used in a classic movie. “Quentin filters his stories through his own love of films. It’s a major part of his storytelling style. So a lot of times he is attracted to a track from an old film for its referential quality,” Ramos says.

Tarantino love of classic movies is matched by his love of classic technology, and not just celluloid. “I still use cassettes when I’m working with Quentin,” Ramos says. “He’s very much an analogue person. He will make mix tapes when we are doing the soundtrack album for the record company. It will be hand-made by him.”

Just as Tarantino has resurrected the careers of actors, most famously John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction,” he has also rekindled appreciation for the work of forgotten song writers and musicians. “There is a Tarantino bump that’s given to music he’s used in his films,” Ramos says, citing the example of “Woo Hoo” by The 5.6.7.8s, which was used in “Kill Bill: Vol. 1.”

It’s not always easy to get rights clearance for a piece of archive music, and it sometimes requires perseverance on the part of the music supervisor to track down the song writer or musicians. “My work is creative but it can also involve a lot of detective work,” Ramos says. Such was the case when Tarantino wanted to use a flamenco disco version of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” by Santa Esmeralda, recorded in 1977, for a scene in “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” where The Bride, played by Uma Thurman, faces off in a final sword battle with O-Ren Ishii, played by Lucy Liu. “It’s a great, quintessential Quentin moment,” Ramos says.

Jennifer Lopez Stuns in Sexy, Plunging Swimsuit While Relaxing Poolside in Vegas

Jennifer Lopez just keeps getting hotter and hotter!

The "Ain't Your Mama" singer took to Instagram on Friday to share a sexy snap of herself relaxing poolside in Las Vegas.

In the pic, Lopez, 46, shows off her incredible physique in a white Moeva swimsuit, which features a very plunging neckline and gold belt. She completed the ultra-fierce look with a pair of Fendi cat-eye sunglasses and hoop earrings, while keeping her hair pulled back into a tight top knot.

"By the pool for my girlie Tera's Bday!!" she captioned it.

Tera Perez is one of Lopez's backup dancers, and has been performing in Sin City as part of the diva's All I Have residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Looks like Perez and Lopez were able to take some time off from their crazy-busy schedule to celebrate in style -- just check out that sparkly gold cake!

The girls looked equally as glam on Sunday afternoon when the two stepped out to the Carnival Del Sol pool party at Drai's Beach Club. The American Idol judge donned a teeny string bikini top, white shorts and an oversized sunhat, while her pal kept it classic in an all-black bikini and strappy sandals.

Perez took to her own Instagram account to share a pic, simply captioning it, "Love this chick."

Laura Linney Explains Why She Kept Quiet About Her Pregnancy at 49

Laura Linney had her reasons for keeping her 2014 pregnancy with son Bennett under wraps.

The 52-year-old actress talked about her decision to remain quiet about the big news right up until she gave birth during her appearance on Live! With Kelly on Friday. Linney welcomed her first child with husband Marc Schauer on Jan. 8, 2014. She was 49 years old at the time.

"Well, I was an older mother-to-be, and it had taken me a very long time to have a child," Linney told Live! host Kelly Ripa, who remarked that the actress was pregnant during her last appearance on the ABC morning show and nobody was aware. "I wanted to make sure that my child actually arrived, and was safe and healthy."

"I was just very, very quiet about it -- I didn't hide it intentionally, I just didn't advertise it," she added. "So, it was the right thing for me and my family."

Linney insisted that nobody ever questioned her about her pregnancy.

"No, but I was going to the theater when I was eight months pregnant, no one said a thing," she recalled. "I mean, I wasn't hiding, and then when I actually had the baby, this big deal was made about, 'She was secret, secret, secret!' And no, I just didn't have a sign that said, 'Hi, I'm pregnant now.'"

While people may not have noticed she was expecting, the Love Actually star did admit to having some pregnancy problems.

"Well, I vomited a lot," Linney smiled. "A lot. So, yeah, I wasn't huge."

Gwen Stefani Flaunts Her Abs and Cleavage in Sexy, Sheer Performance Ensemble

DAYUM, Gwen Stefani!

The "Misery" singer, 46, proved she's ageless (and fearless!) while rocking out onstage at Samsung's 837 Summer Concert Series on Thursday in New York City.

The mother of three donned a super sexy all-black ensemble, which consisted of a high-cut fishnet Death by Dolls leotard over stockings in the same material. Stefani styled the edgy look with a sultry bra top, low-waisted cropped pants and a pleated leather belt that gave off major rocker vibes. Her outfit wouldn't be complete, of course, without a pair of lace-up leather heeled booties, chunky bracelets and her signature red lip.


Splash News
The No Doubt frontwoman helped kick off the concert series with DJ Diplo. During Stefani's performance, she belted out a medley of hits from her latest album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, including "Make Me Like You" and "Misery." She also sang a few of her classics, like "Hollaback Girl," "What You Waiting For?" and "Sweet Escape."

Woman Asked to Leave Baby Gym Class for Breastfeeding

Last Monday, Kate Haslam took her son to a gym class at the Spring Valley YMCA in Limerick, Pa., like she does every Monday. Partway through the class, he got hungry so she did what many mothers would do — she took him to the side of the room and nursed. So she was shocked when two managers allegedly approached her and asked her to leave the room.

“As we were finishing up two upper level management entered the room and approached us to tell me that I would need to nurse on the benches outside of the classroom as there were ‘men in this class that are uncomfortable.’” Haslam wrote in a Facebook post.

“A friend asked if they had a dedicated nursing area and we were told no we could nurse in the locker room.”

When Haslam pointed out that the locker room was coed, and therefore there would also be the possibility of “uncomfortable” men there, she was told that there were stalls with curtains and the YMCA would “prefer” she use the locker room or cover up.

“I explained that as a nursing mother being told to cover up and be hidden away isn’t making me comfortable and was against the law. The teacher and the associate director went back and forth telling me they can’t make me but they prefer women to cover up or go to locker room over and over to make all members comfortable.”

Post Divorce Rumours, Here’s What Raj Kundra And Shilpa Shetty Do!

There were rumours doing rounds that Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra are heading for divorce. But now there is a good news defining all the reports Raj said that I am very in love with Shilpa. We are really happy to read this. Raj-Shilpa really make a cute couple and give us major relationship goals. The two were sppotted while they were returning from dinner date. In an interview Raj also said, “I think this rumour started when Shilpa was complaining to her friends that I have been working so hard that I hardly had any time to spend with her. I have been working on this huge deal almost 20 hours a day from my office in Matunga and haven't had any time to breathe, eat or sleep! I just go home for a shower and change.”

Shilpa is going to celebrate her birthday on 8th June and we were really excited to see what surprise will Raj give her this year. About her birthday Raj Said, “This year we will keep it simple as last year, we celebrated it in Montenegro with all our family and friends so this year will be just Shilpa and me. I will whisk her off somewhere for just one night. And of course, it will be a surprise again. Shilpa is my princess so I have to look after her well,' he mentioned to the leading daily.

Raj even revealed that he was confused for a birthday surprise on his micro-blogging page. He wrote, “My state of mind...what do I buy someone who has everything gets difficult outdoing myself”.

We all really happy after knowing that all is well between the couple.

LADY GAGA’S SMUSHED BOOB PROVES THAT SHOPPING FOR BRAS IS HARD

If you’re a man, you might wonder why magazines and websites repeatedly publish guides to buying the right kind of bra.

The right size, fit, look, support- there’s a lot to consider, especially since this is something all women are expected to wear every day.

If you think I’m being dramatic, if you think it’s probably pretty easy, I present Lady Gaga’s right boob.

On Tuesday, the singer left New York’s Rainbow Room without a shirt, as she is wont to do. (To be fair, it was over 30 degrees outside and stiflingly humid.)

She paired her white lace bra with high-waisted denim shorts, an oversized beige blazer, and a bedazzled stripper hat atop her platinum blonde wig.

The bra is pretty, but it doesn't fit.

In fact, it looks just as uncomfortable as wearing a top in thick 30 degree humidity in Times Square.

If it’s this hard for a millionaire popstar to figure it out, how the hell is anyone else supposed to?

Newly engaged Lindsay Lohan reportedly has a new goal in mind – getting pregnant. The Mean Girl...

Lindsay Lohan 'keen to start a family'

Newly engaged Lindsay Lohan reportedly has a new goal in mind – getting pregnant.

The Mean Girls star became engaged to 23-year-old Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov in April (16), and is apparently very keen to have a baby.

While the couple haven’t officially made a statement about their engagement, Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan confirmed the rumours in an interview with Access Hollywood Live!

Now 29-year-old Lindsay is already looking to the future, and the reformed starlet, who has survived rehab and a short stint in jail following a sentence for probation violation, is reportedly ready to completely ditch her party girl lifestyle for motherhood.

“It’s been tough, but Lindsay has cut back on the cigarettes and booze. She’s eating healthier and trying to be in a relaxed frame of mind,” an insider told Heat Magazine. “She’s even started reading pregnancy guide, What To Expect When You’re Expecting.”

The loved up actress has been happily posting pictures of herself with Egor on Instagram, and even uploaded a snap of a shopping trolley filled to the brim with healthy food which she captioned: “Groceries for cooking night #cook#fresh”.

In May (16) the smitten couple attended a private screening of Disney sequel Alice Through The Looking Glass at London’s Bulgari Hotel, after celebrating Egor’s 23rd birthday with a romantic lunch. And if Lindsay gets her wish, two may soon become three, as the source claims the actress has been dropping lots of hints and her “family are on standby for an announcement.”

“One thing’s for sure – she will do everything she can to make this happen,” the insider continued.

Alluding to the star’s previously wild antics, the source added: “As crazy as it sounds, she’s convinced that all her mistakes in life will make her a better mother.

The View Cuts Co-Host Michelle Collins

And another one bites the dust at The View.

Co-host Michelle Collins has been fired from the morning talker, our sister site Variety reports.

Collins went through a trial run on the program before becoming a permanent co-host last fall for Season 19. However, starting in January, her presence was reduced to one or two appearances a week. She is expected to stay with the show through the end of the summer.

“Michelle is smart, opinionated and funny,” an ABC spokesperson told Variety. “She’s been a great addition to the panel this year. When we are ready to make an announcement about next season, we will.”

Despite the frequent co-host turnover at the gabfest, The View was renewed for Season 20 back in February.

Kanye West checks his Twitter comments every morning

Kanye West starts his day off by reading comments made about himself and his family on social media.

The Stronger hitmaker is known for his random and often lengthy Twitter rants, during which he has previously blasted rival rapper Wiz Khalifa, and appealed to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for a financial handout after revealing pursuing his fashion dreams has left him $53 million (£36.5 million) in debt.

However, Kanye insists he has no regrets about any of his posts, declaring to U.S. radio show Big Boy's Neighborhood, "We're going to be gone in 100 years. I can't say enough."

The star, who shares two children with wife Kim Kardashian, also made it known he reads all of his followers' remarks online first thing every day.

"I wake up in the morning and go read comments," he states.

And the 38-year-old insists most remarks don't bother him, unless they are about his family.

"I'm crazy about my kids," he says. "I'm crazy about Kim."

Kanye proved just how much he loves his wife on America's Mother's Day last month (08May16), when he hired an all-female string orchestra to stage a private performance in their Beverly Hills, California home.

"Mother's Day surprise in my living room!" the thrilled reality star shared on Snapchat.com as she documented the lavish gift.

The musicians all wore flowing white skirts as they performed songs picked out by the couple's two-year-old daughter, North, who joined her mum to watch the private concert.

Tracks included Let It Go from the tot's favourite movie, Frozen, and Annie musical hits It's a Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow.

Lady Gaga Says There's Nothing More 'Isolating' Than Being Famous

From the outside looking in, Lady Gaga appears to be living a glamorous life, but the pop star admits being famous is "isolating."

Gaga discussed the downside of fame during an episode of PBS' and Variety's Actors on Actors series where she was interviewed by Jamie Lee Curtis. "I don't think I could think of a single thing that's more isolating than being famous," she said, agreeing with Curtis' disdain for fame.

"It's almost impossible for people even to probably look at my career and the things I've done and think, 'Oh she didn't want [fame] -- of course she wanted to be famous, of course she wanted all that attention,'" Gaga said. "It's just, creative expression is what I am, and I would've been doing this whether I became famous or not."

Another challenge for the 30-year-old singer/actress is making genuine connections, and knowing a person's true intentions.

"I think the hardest thing for me is that I love people so much and it is very hard to not be able to engage with people in a real and honest way, because they either want something from me, or they see me as something that I simply am not," Gaga revealed. "I am not some goddess that dropped down from the sky to sing pop music, I am not some extra-incredible human person that needs to be told how wonderful they are all day and kissed."

Gaga added that her "purpose" in life is "to make people happy, and heal people through music."

But in the age of social media, fans want more than music: They want selfies.

"I would love more than anything when I meet people to just have a normal exchange with them," Gaga said. "More than have my picture taken or a selfie."

Ultimately, the American Horror Story star wants people to understand that she and other celebs are "real people that just love to make art."

Speaking of art, watch the video below to find out what brought Gaga to tears during her Oscars performance rehearsal.

Blake Lively accused of endangering shark life

Actress Blake Lively has come under fire from shark conservationists for her starring role in new movie The Shallows.

The 28-year-old portrays a surfer fighting for her life after being attacked by a great white shark in the upcoming horror-thriller, and Valerie Faye, the writer of a new petition on crowdfunding website Care2, believes the movie poses a great danger for the sea creatures.

Her online petition, which has already garnered over 21,000 signatures, reads: "In reality, we pose a greater danger to sharks than they do to us. Blake Lively is responsible for perpetuating the false belief that sharks should be hunted and not helped. According to National Geographic, for every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks!"

USA Today previously reported many breeds of shark face extinction within the next couple of decades due to fishing, pollution and other threats, and to combat the prospect of the species' annihilation, Valerie and the supporters of her petition have urged Blake to use some of the money she earned from making The Shallows and donate it to wildlife conservation efforts.

"We are asking Blake Lively to donate just 1% of her movie salary to Shark Conservation," Faye writes.

The Care2 bid is not falling on deaf ears, as Blake has already expressed her concern over shark devastation.

In a post on her Instagram account on Wednesday (01June16), the actress made it clear the issue is meaningful to her, posting a painting of a shark on her social media site and adding the caption: "Sharks are such majestic creatures that need to be protected. I'm grateful for my time with (shark expert) @mikerutzen and (shark attack survivor) @pauldegelder who have taught me so much about the importance and beauty of these sea wonders."

Outcast Premiere Recap: Was Cinemax's New Thriller Scary Good?

Since Outcast is based on a new comic-book series from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman (who also wrote the premiere), the Cinemax thriller had from the get-go hanging over its head a question: Would this be the next Walking Dead?

The answer is “Eh, probably not.” But, as mentioned in TVLine’s recent review, the series does have potential. So let’s go over the key points of “A Darkness Surrounds Him,” then you can decide on your grade, and we’ll discuss in the comments. Ready?

KID STUFF | The episode’s opening moments were not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach: Young, possessed Joshua Austin (Gabriel Bateman) squashed a cockroach against his bedroom wall — with his head — then went from licking up the guts to damn near chewing off his own finger. (Good, gross start, at least!) Since possession was apparently becoming pretty commonplace in Joshua’s small hometown of Rome, W.Va., the boy’s mom knew to run straight to Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister) for an assist. Unfortunately, the preacher’s attempt to drive the demon out of Joshua was an “exorcise” in futility: The kid — or, rather, the entity inside him — kicked the crap outta the rev and gave his poor mom a bloody nose.

AMERICA’S MOST HAUNTED | Across town, Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) was living in squalor in the home where, when he was a youngster, his possessed mother had often attacked him and locked him in the pantry. With some difficulty, adoptive sister Megan Holter (Wrenn Schmidt) convinced him to let her in, if only to marvel at the lack of nutritional value on display in his cupboards — “Do you even remember solid poop?” she asked — and drag him to Piggly Wiggly. He wanted her to give up on him, but, indebted for reasons as yet undisclosed, she wasn’t about to let him go on punishing himself for the incident that ruined his life. Which was? Far as we can piece together from this hour, Kyle’s wife, Allison (Kate Lyn Sheil), was at one point possessed, and he was blamed for harming their daughter.
