Emily Ratajkowski Goes Completely Topless While Vacationing in Mexico -- See the NSFW Pic!

Emily Ratajkowski is not shy about her body!

The Gone Girl star was vacationing in Cancun, Mexico, on Thursday, where she rolled down her black one-piece swimsuit, leaving very little to the imagination as she sunbathed in the ocean.


The 25-year-old model also shared some photos of her bathing suit to Instagram, facetiously captioning one pic, "Having a terrible time."

And the "Blurred Lines" video star opted to go top-down for an Instagram video, writing, "When you're too excited about vacation."

Of course, being comfortable in her own skin is nothing new for Ratajkowski, who just this week, shared a totally nude photo on Instagram.

Alden Richards denies "mystery girlfriend"

Alden Richards has laughed off rumours saying that he is currently dating a "mystery girlfriend". 

According to PEP News, rumours of Richards' love life sparked recently with sources claiming that he met the said woman at an event for Coke and was recently seen on a date with her in Makati City. 

The woman, who is not from showbiz, reportedly is an heiress of a rich family hailing from Pampanga. 

Richards, however, denied the rumours on Facebook, saying that he was perplexed by the rumours. 

"I just wanna make it clear that I don't have a mystery girlfriend. The only time I went to a posh village in Makati was when I visited Dra. Vicki Belo [and her daughter] Scarlet Snow, with some staff from Artist Center," he said.

Gigi Hadid Suffered a Wardrobe Malfunction at the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Gigi Hadid walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the second time recently, an event she described as a “dream” come true. “I will never be able to put into words how much being in this show means to me and how inspired I am by the people I get to work with,” she shared on Instagram. Yet one part of the “magical” experience that didn’t quite go as planned for the model? A wardrobe malfunction.

As the 21-year-old was strutting her stuff down the runway in Paris’s Grand Palais wearing large feather wings and a black bodysuit featuring straps intricately arranged in a geometric pattern, one of the pieces snapped. And with all of the interconnected pieces, it seemed like the entire bodysuit could’ve completely unraveled before onlookers’s very eyes.

Yet the professional (she beat out her sister Bella Hadid and BFF Kendall Jenner for the Model of the Year Award for a reason) just kept on walking despite the mishap, and avoided disaster.

She still celebrated in the end, too.

But, if you didn’t happen to catch the fashion fluke when the show aired on Monday night, there’s a good reason for that. The event, which taped on Nov. 30, gets two run throughs. Just in case incidents like this happen to arise, producers can cut it out for the final airing for television viewers.

And on the third day of Christmas –er, December, Love magazine has given us Rita Ora in lederhosen.

Every year the publication features models in sexy, silly and down-right perplexing get-ups in its 25-days-to-Christmas-countdown.

But on Saturday, Ora, 26, offered an ode to the legendary swing group, The Andrew Sisters. Portraying all three of them and dancing along to their hit 1940s song “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” One difference in Ora’s rendition? The singer was wearing almost nothing, as she donned lederhosen and a pair of heart-shaped pasties in one of her many looks.

In the short video, seen above, Ora flashes and moons the audience and swings along to the beat of the classic tune.

Her other outfits for the video were also German-inspired, with a cheeky twist. Lifting up her skirt, Ora revealed underwear with a red heart, and one pair with the word “Love” written on the front. The suspender-clad lederhosen look was modernized with over-the-knee leather boots and her other ensembles featured white lace garter tights.

To start out the annual advent calendar, Bella Hadid dressed up as a sexy fitness instructor and Irina Shayk provided her iteration of Demi Moore‘s iconic pottery-making scene in the film Ghost.

‘The Walking Dead’ Recap: We Are… the Saviors “Sing Me a Song”

After that brutal Season 7 premiere, the rest of the season has sped by, and “Sing Me a Song” — featuring some iconic moments between Carl and Negan that are ripped right from today’s headlines, er, 2012’s comics — leads us right into next week’s midseason finale. Here’s where Rick’s group members are, what they’re planning, and hints about who that midseason ender might go very, very badly for.

Carl and Negan
Carl and Jesus are both stowaways on that Savior supply truck headed towards the Sanctuary, and when they’re close to the Saviors’ home base, Jesus suggests jumping out and trailing them the rest of the way. Carl tells him to show him how first, and when Jesus jumps out, Carl stays in the truck and waves at Jesus as it continues to drive away. Carl really wants to kill him some Negan.

And he gets a chance; when the truck pulls inside the base, Carl sees the staked walkers surrounding the place, then selects a weapon — a big ol’ machine gun — from the stash the Saviors took from the Hilltop. He suddenly hears Negan’s voice outside the truck, just as one of the Saviors spots Carl inside. Carl shoots and kills him, then edges out of the truck and tells everyone to drop their weapons. “I only want Negan,” he says. “He killed my friends. No one else needs to die.”

Negan hears the commotion and comes over to investigate. “Damn! You are adorable,” he tells gun-totin’ Carl. “Did you pick that gun ‘cuz it looks cool? Kid, I ain’t gonna lie. You scare the shit out of me!”

Carl shoots another Savior, and Dwight tackles him from the side and knocks him to the ground. Daryl, who’s still attired in his sad A sweatsuit and who is working in the walker yard, comes over and realizes Carl is the one at the center of the ruckus. Negan offers Carl a hand to help him up, telling him he wants to show him around. Carl just looks at him, prompting Negan to tell him he does “the same damn stink eye as your dad, except it’s only half as good, because, you know…”

Negan’s now ticked Carl won’t take his hand, and tells him he’s lucky he still has it, like his buddy Daryl, who’s still looking on. Negan warns Daryl his job fending off the staked walkers would be more difficult with only one arm, and getting the implicit threat, Carl takes his hand and Negan tells Dwight to take Daryl off to prep a snack for him. Negan laments that he’s not even going to have time to “screw any of my wives today,” though says he’ll make time for one, and looks directly at Dwight.

Carl asks what Negan has planned for him.

“Number one, do not shatter my image of you. You’re a badass. You’re not scared of s–t, don’t be scared of me, it’s a disappointment,” Negan says, in one of the character’s rants that is taken directly from the comic book. “Number two, you really want me to ruin the surprise? Screw you, kid. Seriously, screw you.” Negan takes Carl into the Sanctuary and whispers, “Check this out.”

Negan walks to a railing, and a large crowd of Saviors below dropped to a kneeling position. “The Saviors have gone out into the world and fought the dead and come back with some really good stuff,” he tells his people. “Some of that stuff can be yours if you work hard and play by the rules.” He tells them they’re all getting fresh veggies for dinner, no points necessary, and they clap.

“You see that? Respect! Cool, huh?” Negan says to a clearly impressed Carl. Which is nothing compared to Carl’s reaction when Negan takes him into the room where all his wives are hanging out. “Every woman here dresses like they do the books at an auto shop,” he quips to Carl about the short, tight, sleeveless dresses the women are wearing. He tells Carl to look at their breasts, that they won’t mind.

Taking a brief break from that creepiness, Negan calls Sherry — Dwight’s ex who appears to be Negan’s preferred apocalyptic wife — over for a private conversation. He asks her what happened with Mark and Amber. She refuses to answer at first, but then tells him Amber made a mistake, and that he should go easy on her.

“I ever hit one of you?” Negan asks.

“No,” Sherry says, “but I know you. There’s worse.”

Negan puts a bottle of beer in Carl’s hand, then chats with Amber. He reminds her she could reunite with Mark, and give up her life as one of his wives, which would mean returning to her old job. He doesn’t specify what that is, but the thought of it is enough to make her cry, apologize for “cheating” on him with Mark, and tell him, “I love you, Negan.”

“Of course you do, darlin’,” he says. “I don’t know why you’re crying… it’s all going to work out aces for you.”

Negan then tells Sherry to get Dr. Carson, and she calls him an asshole. “I know!” he tells her. “But the messed up thing is, you like me anyway. You know the truth, just like me.” The two kiss, a deep, passionate kiss that Sherry is into. Just then Dwight and Daryl walk in, bringing the food Negan ordered. Negan carries on with the kiss, aware Dwight is watching.

Negan comes over and picks up a piece of food from the tray with a toothpick, and Daryl speaks for the first time, asking why Negan has Carl there. Negan tells him it’s none of his business, and threatens to put the toothpick through Carl’s only remaining eye. Daryl’s ordered to go mop, and Negan tells Dwight to fire up the furnace. “Time for a little déjà vu,” he further taunts “Dwightie Boy.”

While Dwight’s readying the punishment tools, Negan takes Carl to his bedroom, telling him he wants to get to know him better. Carl asks if all those women are really his wives. “I always wanted to screw a whole bunch of different women,” Negan proudly explains. “Why settle for just one? Why follow the same old roles? Why not make life better?”

He tells Carl he knows how smart he is, that he was ambitious enough to come after Negan. But he’s also smart enough to know Negan can’t let him get away with killing two of his men. Then he switches tactics, ordering Carl to unwrap the bandage around his eye wound. Carl refuses. “Do you really wanna piss me off?” Negan warns. Carl, now visibly rattled, removes the bandage to reveal an empty eye socket. “Christ! That’s disgusting,” Negan yells at the teen. “No wonder you cover that up!

“Have you seen it?” he continues. “Have you looked in the mirror? That is gross as hell. I can see your socket.”

Carl’s crying now, and Negan tells him it’s easy to forget he’s just a kid. He says he didn’t mean to hurt Carl’s feelings. Fat Joey comes in at this point to bring Lucille to Negan. He forgot his trademark weapon outside, and after making a foul joke about the bat and female genitalia, he dismisses Joey and tries to play the nice half of his head games with Carl. “You look rad as hell,” Negan says. “I wouldn’t cover that shit up. It may not be a hit with the ladies, but I swear to you, no one is going to screw with you looking like that, no sir!”

He tells Carl he’s been busting balls, something Rick should be teaching Carl about. Then he switches to Bad Negan again, and tells Carl he wants him to sing a song. “You mowed down two of my men with a machine gun… I want something in return for that,” Negan orders. “Sing me a song.”

Carl says he doesn’t know any, but Negan tells him to sing something his mom used to sing it him, or something he heard while in the car with his dad. And as Negan stands up and begins swinging Lucille around the room, Carl tearfully begins to sing “You Are My Sunshine.” Lucille likes that, Negan reports. “It’s the only thing she lives more than bashing in brains.”

Negan asks Carl about Lori, where she is now. When Carl’s silence offers an answer, Negan asks what happened to her. Carl says he’s the one who shot her. Negan: “Damn, no wonder you’re a little serial killer in the making.”

He tells Carl that was an example of breaking balls, by the way, and tells him they’re going somewhere else, because “it” should be ready.

The iron, he means. When he and Carl join the Saviors — and Daryl — kneeling around the furnace, Carl sees a man, Mark, tied to a chair. Negan tells everyone what is about to happen will be hard to watch, and he wishes he didn’t have to do it, but he does. “Why?” he asks of his people.

“The rules keep us alive!” they all shout in unison back at him.

“We survive. We provide security to others. We bring civilization back to this world,” Negan says. “We are… the Saviors. But we can’t do that without rules. Rules are what make it all work.”

Daryl and Dwight look at each other, with Daryl realizing what had happened to Dwight after he and Sherry stole Daryl’s motorcycle.

Dwight passes off the hot iron to Negan, who puts it against the side of Mark’s face, near his eye. Mark screams, and soon mercifully passes out from the pain. Negan makes fun of Mark for wetting himself, and orders Daryl to mop up the mess. He calls Mark the P-word (the word that is used way too often in primetime, just sayin’) for passing out, but says everything is square now. He reminds his people that this is a lesson about following the rules, and tells Carl they need to go figure out what to do with him.

The two head back to Negan’s room, where he demands Carl not redress his eye yet. But Carl’s regained his composure and his sass. He tells Negan he doesn’t think he’s going to do anything to him, not punish him at all for killing his men. “If you knew us, if you knew anything, you would kill us,” Carl says. “But you can’t.” Negan says maybe he’s right, and puts Carl behind the wheel of a supply truck. Daryl’s nearby, and Negan tells him he seemed worried about Carl, so he’s taking him home. “If you do anything to him…” Daryl starts, and Negan yells for Dwight to give Daryl a time out in his box. As Daryl walks by the back of the truck, he looks up, where Jesus is hiding out on top. When Carl pulls the truck away, Jesus is gone.

When Negan’s truck and another Savior supply truck reach Alexandria, Negan knocks on Rick’s door. Olivia answers and is terrified to see who’s on the other side. He walks in, with Carl, and when she tells him Rick is out on a supply run, because they’re practically starving, Negan cruelly mocks her, aiming the jab at her weight. She turns and starts crying, and Negan tells Carl, “You people really don’t have a sense of humor.”

He turns back to Olivia then, apologizing for being rude to her. Since they have some time to pass before Rick returns, he says, “If you’d like, I think it would be enjoyable to screw your brains out. If you’re agreeable to it.”

Olivia is not. And she slaps him, hard, across the face. He’s rattled, briefly, but then smiles and tells her, “I am about 50 percent more into you now.” He asks her to be a lamb and make he and Carl some lemonade, and orders Carl to give him a tour of Casa Grimes in the meantime. In Carl’s room, Negan takes off his shoes and wiggles his toes in the carpet. And then he heads for a closed door, and Carl’s too late to stop him. It’s Judith’s room… Judith, the baby Negan knew nothing about, until now. He picks her up from her crib; “Look at this little angel.”

Outside on the front porch with Carl by his side and Judith on his lap, Negan tells Carl he was thinking about what Carl said earlier. “Maybe it is stupid keeping you and your dad alive. I mean, why am I trying so hard?” he says. “Maybe I should just bury you both down in one of those flower beds… and I could settle into the suburbs.”

He seals his thoughts with a kiss to Judith’s head.

Remember when Michonne told Carl she needed to think about some thangs before she decided if she could be fully onboard with Rick’s plan to go along with Negan’s demands? And remember when she told Rick she had not hidden any additional guns? Lies, all lies. Her big plan was to walk along the road she knows the Saviors drive on (i.e. the road where she saw they had dumped and burned the mattresses they took from Alexandria — nice callback), whistle to draw walkers from the woods, kill them, and pile up their bodies to build a barricade across the road.

When one of the Savior women, Isabelle, is forced to stop because of the little wall of walkers, Michonne pops up and puts her katana to Isabelle’s head, and tells her, “Take me to Negan.” They get into Isabelle’s truck, and she starts to drive, slams on the brakes and tries to wrest away the gun Michonne’s now holding on her, but Michonne regains control, cocks the gun, and repeats, “Take me to Negan.”

Has Negan pushed Dwight too far? Whether it was seeing Negan and Sherry make out, having to prepare the iron that did to Mark what Negan did to his own face after he and Sherry ran off, or simply coming to believe there can be a resistance to Negan’s way, Dwight appears to have had enough. When he and Sherry meet up in the stairwell to share a cigarette, he lets her know he knows she gave up Mark and Amber. He tells her he can’t sleep, being one of Negan’s minions. She says they made their deal with Negan, and that it was only supposed to affect them. “If you’re still standing, it’s always on someone else’s back,” he tells her.

Later, when Daryl is back in his box, a piece of paper is slipped under the door to him. It has a key taped to it, and the words “GO NOW” are scrawled on it. Dwight’s handiwork?

Rosita and Eugene
Rosita’s dragging Eugene off on a secret mission: to that bullet factory he and Abraham visited, so Eugene can fashion a bullet for the gun no one else but the two of them know she has. Once there, Eugene tries to get her to “slow your roll,” pointing out to her how dangerous, and suicidal, her plan to kill Negan could be. She tells him she’s willing to pay the price to make him pay for killing Abe, but Eugene points out that they’ve seen that the Saviors’ punishment isn’t always aimed at the one who ticks them off. Besides, he tells her, “It doesn’t matter if you’re stealthy, snipey, gun or knifey… Abraham was right, they have the numbers.”

That just angers her, and Rosita gets nasty with Eugene. “You don’t know anything. You don’t do anything,” she tells him. “You’re a coward, and you’re weak. The only reason you’re alive is because you lied and because people feel sorry for you. So for once, do something useful, and make me a bullet.” He does.

Later, Rosita thanks him, and apologizes for what she says, but Eugene rejects it, calling it insincere. “You meant it, you felt it, that’s your truth,” he tells her. “I’d like to take it back to awkward silence now.”

Spencer tells Rosita they have to go scavenge goodies for Negan; it’s like paying taxes he says. He even tells her he thinks he could do better than Rick, and he and Father Gabriel set off in a car to bring back some of that tax payment Negan’s expecting during his next visit.

Rick’s threats and the fact that Spencer has whipped himself into a grudge against Rick for the death of his family leads him to ask Gabriel if it’s a sin to hate someone. Because he hates Rick. Gabriel, who certainly went through his own anti-Ricktatorship phase, defends his friend. “He didn’t just keep people alive,” he tells Spencer. “He brought us all together… he’s not perfect, but he’s a man who finds his way.”

Spencer’s having none of it. “Maybe the only good thing that could happen to us now is [Rick] never makes it back,” he tells Gabriel. Who isn’t having any of that. He makes Spencer stop the car, as he’s returning home. “What you’re saying doesn’t make you a sinner,” he tells Spencer. “But it does make you a tremendous s–t. For now. It doesn’t have to be terminal.”

Spencer continues on his mission, and finds a walker standing on a platform up in a tree in the woods. The walker has a bow, so Spencer uses rope to rig a system to knock the walker and the bow down. He gets it, and when he searches the walker’s pockets, he finds a note, written in Latin.

When we next see Spencer, he’s pulling into Alexandria with a car full supplies: food, water purifiers, all kinds of goodies. He runs into the returning Eugene and Rosita and explains he found a note that detailed, in Latin, directions to some guy’s hidden stash. He’s going to give it to Negan, he tells Rosita, and “I’m gonna do more than that.” Spencer has a plan… that can’t be good for anyone, probably for Spencer least of all, especially when they all see the Saviors’ trucks and note that Negan has returned to Alexandria as threatened.

Rick and Aaron
Rick and Aaron wake up in the back of a supply truck, determined to find some preparations for the next time Negan comes banging on the gates of Alexandria. “We have today, and only today, to find something,” Rick says. “They could be back by tomorrow. They could be back now.”

The two stumble upon an area protected by a wooden gate with a sign that warns them: “Keep going. Only thing here for you is trouble.” They do keep going, onto the forbidden property, where they get to another sign. “The only way that you have possibly read this far without being shot is that I am dead,” it reads. It also indicated there is food, ammo, and other supplies nearby, and as they walk further, they see where the supplies are: on a floating structure in the middle of a lake that is stocked with live walkers. There is a rowboat in the water, but…

“Today, and only today, right?” Aaron says

So, to recap our recap: Carl has survived killing two of Negan’s men, but has brought the enemy to his doorstep, and more frighteningly, to his baby sister; Rick and Aaron may have found a big cache of supplies, but are currently away from home when Negan is sitting on Rick’s front porch with Carl and Judith; Daryl has been given the key to his escape from the Sanctuary, while Michonne is headed to the Saviors’ lair; Rosita has a gun, but has cruelly dismissed Eugene’s good advice; and Spencer has supplies, but an unfortunate sense that he could be a better leader than Rick… All of that should make for an eventful midseason finale.

Zombie Bites:

* Michonne whistling “The Farmer in the Dell” to lure out her road hurdle walkers had to be an homage to Omar Little, given what self-professed fans of The Wire Robert Kirkman and other TWD writers — who’ve already cast three Wire alums on the show — are.

* There is so little to like about Spencer, but it is nice that he finally appreciates how great his mom, Deanna, was. An especially touching callback in this ep: he says taking Latin in school was a pain in the butt, but she told him at the time it was a pain that would be useful to him someday. Clearly, it was. It’s also the message Deana wrote, in Latin, in Season 6’s “Now.” “Dolor hic tibi proderit olim,” she penned on her plans for Alexandria’s expansion, which literally translates to “This pain will be useful to you.”

* Much of the great Carl/Negan interaction in the episode is taken directly from issue 105 of TWD comic book, which was published in December 2012.

* Without delving into spoilers, fans really anxious to get more of Negan’s backstory may want to check out the “Here’s Negan” comic in Image Plus magazine. We learn why he adapted his irreverent, funny guy ‘tude, and how Carl is not the first impressionable young man he’s shared his philosophies about women with.

— The walker from the platform in the tree, the one who appeared to be staking out something, the one whose bow and supply note Spencer snagged … do we think he might be the same guy who owns the supplies Rick and Aaron found at the lake?

* Where’s Jesus? Daryl spotted him on top of the supply truck Negan was in, but then he was missing when the truck pulled away… did he slip into the back? Or under the truck? In other words, are his much-needed skills heading to Alexandria, or stuck behind at the Sanctuary for the midseason finale showdown in Alexandria?

* Janis Martin’s “Bang Bang” is the song playing during Negan’s tour of Rick’s house.

O.K., Dead-heads, let’s hear your reactions to “Sing Me a Song”: Father Gabriel tells Spencer his current creepiness against Rick doesn’t have to be terminal creepiness, but anyone else not laying down big odds of Spencer making it out of Season 7 — maybe even the next episode — alive? Was that key slipped to Daryl in his box the literal key to his escape, or a trick? What will Michonne do at the Sanctuary? Will Rick and Aaron come back with supplies, and will they make it back before Negan wraps Lucille around the head of any other Alexandrians?

Alden Richards wants action movie with Maine Mendoza

Alden Richards is interested in working with his onscreen partner Maine Mendoza in more projects, but there is one type of movie that he hopes to do with the actress one day.

As reported on PEP News, the actor, who answered several fan questions online via the Asian TV Awards' Twitter recently, shared that he and Mendoza have always been interested in filming an action movie. 

"An action-comedy-romance movie. So, hopefully, the next concept of the movie will be like that. Fingers crossed," replied Richards with a smile. 

The actor has already filmed two movies with Mendoza, "My Bebe Love" and "Imagine You and Me", since they were paired up through the variety show, "Eat Bulaga!". 

They also made a cameo in Vic Sotto's new movie, "Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers".

He also responded to another question about his most memorable movie role, naming his role in 2012's "The Road" as his best, saying, "I played a psycho killer [in "The Road"]. I miss playing psycho roles." 

Richards recently served as one of the hosts for this year's Asian Television Awards aside from Adrian Pang, Fiona Su, Baki Zainal and Stephanie Carrington. The event was held on 2 December in Singapore.

'Star Wars' Fans Can Snap Up Advance 'Rogue One' Tickets Beginning, we are getting so excited

Disney isn’t waiting for the masses to get over their turkey hangovers, as the media conglomerate announced that tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will go on sale November 28. Nerds everywhere will be able to secure their spot for the latest installment three weeks before the film will be released.

Expectations are high for the film, although it will reportedly buck trends from the original Star Wars installments. Don’t believe that? Well, the filmmakers are throwing fans through a loop by not including an opening crawl. Ruining childhoods aside, Rogue One follows its most immediate predecessor, The Force Awakens, which exceeded expectations with $100 million in advance ticket sales (and also made more than $247 million its opening weekend and blew past the $2 billion mark worldwide). However, Forbes projects Rogue One to land somewhere in the $130 million range for its debut weekend, so it will still be big, just not record-setting huge.

Many bothan spies would give their lives to make something even close to that box office total, but this is Star Wars, so insane ticket sales are to be expected. The film will see inevitable holiday competition, but it may become the holiday season winner.

Joanna Krupa Goes Completely Nude for Her Version of the Mannequin Challenge

Celebrities from Amy Schumer to Taylor Swift have shared their attempts at the #MannequinChallenge, but none have had the steamy twist that Joanna Krupa brought.

The Real Housewives of Miami star, 37, decided to do try the viral obsession sweeping the Internet — but completely in the nude.

In the Instagram video, Krupa is seen lounging while reading a magazine near a window overlooking Chicago with her arms and legs strategically placed.

“Naughty way of relaxing on this gorgeous clear day at@parkhyattchicago reading@michiganavemag . And doing mannequin challenge my way,” she captioned a photo of her pose.

Krupa was sure to give her husband, Romain Zago, credit for the sultry shot.

The model is no stranger to baring it all on Instagram. For her Halloween costume last month, Krupa opted for body paint over fabric for her Miss Butterfly costume. She also shared a completely nude video on a balcony with a view of the beach from a recent photo shoot.

She’s also stripped down to raise awareness for orcas in SeaWorld Theme Parks. In the ads for PETA, Krupa’s body is painted to resemble one of the giant whales.

“I can only envision and feel the pain of these animals being stuck in a tiny aquarium,” she said of the living conditions at SeaWorld. “Normally orcas swim 100 miles a day. They’re free in the ocean. And here they’ve been captured since they were little babies.”

Alicia Silverstone Poses Nude for PETA to Protest Wool

Alicia Silverstone would rather go naked than wear wool. And she’s making that very clear in her new ad for PETA, in which she poses nude holding a sheep mask and standing with her back to the camera. A massive billboard of the image now stands near Times Square in New York City.

“If you’re trying to avoid wool, why not make that leap?” she suggests in a related video that’s part of PETA’s new #WoolFreeWinter campaign. “Say, ‘I’m never going to buy wool again.'”

She continues, “Wool, in general, has not been thought about by many, many people. It’s just not something that’s brought to their attention. The biggest thing that people always say to me is, ‘Oh, but they just shear the sheep! They don’t kill the sheep.’” The video then cuts to graphic images of sheep being tortured for their wool, the very fabric that’s in the sweater you are probably wearing right now.

As the PETA website goes on to explain, “If they were left alone and not genetically manipulated, sheep would grow just enough wool to protect themselves from temperature extremes. The fleece provides them with effective insulation against both cold and heat.” Additionally, it notes, “Shearers are usually paid by volume, not by the hour, which encourages fast work without any regard for the welfare of the sheep. This hasty and careless shearing leads to frequent injuries, and workers use a needle and thread to sew the worst wounds shut — without any pain relief. Strips of skin — and even teats, tails, and ears — are often cut or ripped off during shearing.”

The 40-year-old star once famously debated in behalf of “Haiti-ans” in Clueless, but now she’s arguing in behalf of sheep, and as usual, she makes a good point. “It’s on the slaughterhouse floor, where it’s on a conveyor belt, and it’s going that fast. It’s just so fast — the shearing process — that they’re cut, they’re harmed. They get very seriously wounded, and there’s no care for them when they’re wounded. It’s just, ‘Move on to the next,’” Silverstone states in the video. “These are not creatures to the people who are doing this. They’re just objects. When the sheep are no longer useful, they’re killed.”

This is not Silverstone’s first foray into PETA activism. In the early 2000s, she appeared in a video for the organization about being a vegetarian and how it has made her feel better and has given her more energy.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Pays Tribute to Leonard Cohen: 'Canada & The World Will Miss Him'

The music world has lost a giant, and Canada has lost a national treasure.

After news broke of the death of Leonard Cohen on Thursday night (Nov. 10), Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter to mourn the loss of the 82-year-old singer/songwriter, who was born in Westmount, Quebec, and whose music was warmly embraced by his native country.

"No other artist's music felt or sounded like Leonard Cohen's. Yet his work resonated across generations," Trudeau wrote, in both English and French, on Twitter. "Canada and the world will miss him."

Leonard Cohen’s 'Hallelujah': The Song That Slowly But Surely Become a Standard

It’s not always readily apparent which songs are going to become standards. Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” didn’t seem to have much chance of becoming one when the Canadian singer-songwriter, who passed away Thursday at age 82, introduced it on his 1984 album Various Positions. Neither the song nor the album hit the Billboard charts that year or received a Grammy nomination.

But slowly but surely, the song has attained the status of a modern-day standard. It has reached Billboard‘s Hot 100 seven times (including a current version by the vocal group Pentatonix). It has been performed countless times on TV talent shows. Just two months ago, Tori Kelly sang the song during the “In Memoriam” segment at the Emmy Awards.

John Cale recorded one of the first significant covers of the song. He sang it on I’m Your Fan, a 1991 tribute album to Cohen. A decade later, Cale’s version was featured in the 2001 film Shrek (although Rufus Wainwright’s version appeared on the best-selling soundtrack album).

Leonard Cohen a hugely influential singer and songwriter died at the age of 82

 Leonard Cohen, a hugely influential singer and songwriter, whose work spanned five decades, died at the age of 82. Cohen's label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer's Facebook page. 

"It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away," the statement read. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief." A cause of death was not given.

Cohen was the dark eminence among a small pantheon of extremely influential singer-songwriters to emerge in the Sixties and early Seventies. Only Bob Dylan exerted a more profound influence upon his generation, and perhaps only Paul Simon and fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell equaled him as a song poet. Cohen's haunting bass voice, nylon-stringed guitar patterns, Greek-chorus backing vocals shaped evocative songs that dealt with love and hate, sex and spirituality, war and peace, ecstasy and depression. He was also the rare artist of his generation to enjoy artistic success into his Eighties, releasing his final album, You Want It Darker, earlier this year.

"I never had the sense that there was an end," he said in 1992. "That there was a retirement or that there was a jackpot."

Leonard Norman Cohen was born on September 21st, 1934, in Westmount, Quebec. He learned guitar as a teenager and formed a folk group called the Buckskin Boys. Early exposure to Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca turned him toward poetry – while a flamenco guitar teacher convinced him to trade steel strings for nylon. After graduating from McGill University, Cohen moved to the Greek island of Hydra, where he purchased a house for $1,500 with the help of a modest trust fund established by his father, who died when Leonard was nine. While living on Hydra, Cohen published the poetry collection Flowers for Hitler (1964) and the novels The Favourite Game (1963) and Beautiful Losers (1966).

Frustrated by poor book sales, and tired of working in Montreal's garment industry, Cohen visited New York in 1966 to investigate the city's robust folk-rock scene. He met folk singer Judy Collins, who later that year included two of his songs, including the early hit "Suzanne," on her album In My Life. His New York milieu included Andy Warhol, the Velvet Underground, and, most importantly, the haunting German singer Nico, whose despondent delivery he may have emulated on his exquisite 1967 album Songs of Leonard Cohen.

Cohen quickly became the songwriter's songwriter of choice for artists like Collins, James Taylor, Willie Nelson and many others. His black-and-white album photos offered an arresting image to go with his stark yet lovely songs. His next two albums, Songs From a Room (1969) and Songs of Love and Hate (1971), benefited from the spare production of Bob Johnston, along with a group of seasoned session musicians that included Charlie Daniels, gave them in Nashville.

During the Seventies, Cohen set out on the first of the many long, intense tours he would reprise toward the end of his career. "One of the reasons I'm on tour is to meet people," he told Rolling Stone in 1971. "I consider it a reconnaissance. You know, I consider myself like in a military operation. I don't feel like a citizen." His time on tour inspired the live sound producer John Lissauer brought to his 1974 masterpiece, New Skin for the Old Ceremony. However, he risked a production catastrophe by hiring wall-of-sound maximalist Phil Spector to work on his next album, Death of a Ladies Man, whose adversarial creation resulted in a Rolling Stone review titled "Leonard Cohen's Doo-Wop Nightmare."

Cohen's relationship with Suzanne Elrod during most of the Seventies resulted in two children, the photographer Lorca Cohen and Adam Cohen, who leads the group Low Millions. Cohen was well known for his wandering ways, and his most stable relationships were with backing singers Laura Branigan, Sharon Robinson, Anjani Thomas, and, most notably, Jennifer Warnes, who he wrote with and produced (Warnes frequently performed Cohen’s music). After indulging in a variety of international styles on Recent Songs (1979), Cohen accorded Warnes full co-vocal credit on 1984's Various Positions.

Various Positions included "Hallelujah," a meditation on love, sex, and music that would become Cohen's best-known composition thanks to Jeff Buckley's incandescent 1994 reinterpretation. Its greatness wasn't recognized by Cohen's label, however. By way of informing him that Columbia Records would not be releasing Various Positions, label head Walter Yetnikoff reportedly told Cohen, "Look, Leonard; we know you're great, but we don't know if you're any good." Cohen returned to the label in 1988 with I'm Your Man, an album of sly humor and social commentary that launched the synths-and-gravitas style he continued on The Future (1992).

In 1995, Cohen put the breaks on his career, entered the Mt. Baldy Zen Center outside of Los Angeles, became an ordained Buddhist monk, and took on the Dharma name Jikan ("silence"). His duties included cooking for Kyozan Joshu Sasaki Roshi, the priest and longtime Cohen mentor who died in 2014 at the age of 104. Cohen broke his musical silence in 2001 with Ten New Songs, a collaboration with Sharon Robinson, and Dear Heather (2004), a relatively uplifting project with current girlfriend Anjani Thomas. While never abandoning Judaism, the Sabbath-observing songwriter attributed Buddhism to curbing the depressive episodes that had always plagued him.

The final act of Cohen's career began in 2005, when Lorca Cohen began to suspect her father's longtime manager, Kelley Lynch, of embezzling funds from his retirement account. In fact, Lynch had robbed Cohen of more than $5 million. To replenish the fund, Cohen undertook an epic world tour during which he would perform 247 shows from 2008 to 2010. He continued to record as well, releasing Old Ideas (2012) and Popular Problems, which hit U.S. shops a day after his eightieth birthday. "[Y]ou depend on a certain resilience that is not yours to command, but which is present," he told Rolling Stone upon its release. "And if you can sense this resilience or sense this capacity to continue, it means a lot more at this age than it did when I was 30, when I took it for granted."

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry experienced a rare terrible shooting night on Friday ...

Stephen Curry breaks NBA record for 3s in one game with 13

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry experienced a rare terrible shooting night on Friday when he missed all 10 of his three-pointers against the Los Angeles Lakers, ended an NBA record streak of 157 straight games with at least one three. Faced with an opportunity to bounce back at home Monday against the New Orleans Pelicans, Curry did not just take advantage of his fresh start. He literally made more three-pointers than an NBA player ever had in a single game.

Curry shot 13-of-17 from beyond the arc to set a new NBA record for three-pointers in a game, claiming sole possession of a record he had previously shared with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall. Curry tied that mark with 12 three-pointers — the last on a 35-foot buzzer-beater — in a dramatic overtime win against the Oklahoma City Thunder in February. Monday night’s record-breaker did not come under quite such incredible circumstances, but watching Curry remains one of the most thrilling experiences in sports.

Curry’s final three-pointer put the Warriors up by the comfortable score of 109-97 with 2:23 remaining in regulation, but this was a game in which Golden State needed every one of his shots to come away with the 116-106 win. Curry made 6-of-8 long-range shots in the first half to help Golden State to a 63-49 halftime advantage, but New Orleans managed to take their own lead after fewer than eight minutes of the third quarter. Curry responded with three three-pointers (and a galvanizing technical foul after a non-call) in the final four minutes of the period to put the Warriors back up 84-78.

The Pelicans attempted to double-team Curry at times in the fourth quarter, but he added another trio of three-pointers to set both the record and the course of crunch time. His 46 points were as important as they appeared.

A pessimistic view of Curry’s night would put more emphasis on the fact that his showing was necessary for the win. The Pelicans entered the contest with no wins in six tries and managed to score consistently against a Warriors defense that has looked iffy to start the season. Anthony Davis continued his strong start to 2016-17 with 33 points and 13 rebounds as the Pelicans shot 48.8 percent from the field. The Golden State defense remains a work in progress, and it could take months for head coach Steve Kerr to find ideal lineups and his best interior defensive combinations. Monday’s game, against one of the league’s worst teams so far, seemed to confirm that the current defensive setup is going to experience peaks and valleys for a while.

The good news is that the offense looks just fine, if also well below its astronomical ceiling. Curry’s obviously not going to break a three-point record every game, but the Warriors have three players capable of putting up 40 points (perhaps concurrently) on any given night. Kevin Durant (22 points on 8-of-17 FG) and Klay Thompson (24 points on 11-of-20 FG) were solid on Monday, too, with the latter putting together his second solid game in his last three outings as he tries to end an early-season slump. Warriors other than Curry and Durant are still struggling to make open jumpers for no apparent reason, but there are no process-driven red flags at the offensive end. Defenses are going to struggle with this group all season.

Plus, Monday continued to prove that fears over the Warriors juggernaut sapping the league of any fun are overblown. The normal rules of NBA team-building still apply to a group of four All-NBA players, but each star is still individually fascinating enough to do something no one has ever seen before. Root against the Warriors if you want, but remain willing to enjoy what only they can do.

Showbiz’s Chicago Cubs Fans Celebrate World Series Win

The Chicago Cubs had quite a cheering section among showbizzers on Wednesday night as the baseball team ended its 108-year World Series drought with a hard-fought 8-7 win over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7.

Actor Bill Murray, a vocal Cubs fan, was seen exulting in the stands at Cleveland’s Progressive Field as the reality of the Cubs’ win sunk in.

Numerous industryites exchanged color commentary on the epic final game via social media. When the Cubs clinched the win, in the 10th inning after a 17-minute rain delay (lake-effect rain in Cleveland can be unpredictable), the joyous tweets erupted. Here’s a sampling:

Nicole Cordoves places second at Miss Grand International

Philippine's bet Nicole Cordoves was named the first runner-up for Miss Grand International, but not without getting her own share of contempt from audiences during her Q&A segment. 

As reported on PEP News, the beauty queen, who placed second behind Indonesia's Ariska Putri Pertiwi, did not receive a welcoming applause in the first part of her answer, when asked if she would choose Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump to help them stop war and violence, which is also the theme for this year's pageant. 

"I would choose Donald Trump to stop the war and violence with me because if we choose him to switch to our side, there won't be war and violence anymore," answered Cordoves to the surprise of many. 

However, she later received the applause she needed by explaining, "Imagine, someone who would bring so much madness, and so much emotion to these people, what if we use his voice to actually do good for the world? What if we use that to our advantage?" 

She wasn't the only contestant who was booed for her response. Miss USA Michelle Leon also suffered the same response when picking Trump as her choice. 

However, Cordoves fared better in her speech, which might have been one of the reasons she was chosen as the first runner-up for Miss Grand International. 

She expressed, "I stand here tonight refusing to tell the same story to our next generation. Children should fight for their dreams, not for their lives."

WATCH: James Corden models Lady Gaga's most iconic outfits on Carpool Karaoke

Not many people can pull off Lady Gaga's outlandish outfits, but James Corden had a crack at it during his latest instalment of Carpool Karaoke.
The comedian tried on some of the singer's most iconic looks, ranging from her VMAs meat dress to her Brit Awards ruffled white gown.

"I don't like it when fashion fails me," said Lady Gaga.
"It rarely does," said James, in all seriousness.
Lady Gaga was the latest guest to feature on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke
"Oh no, I don't know about that!" laughed the singer. "Or maybe I fail fashion? I guess with me I just never worry about who likes it or doesn't. Kind of, the point is to be unfashionable."
James tried on a copy of Lady Gaga's meat dress, complete with slices of ham and strips of bacon.

"The good thing with this one is, you always have a snack," said James, tearing off bits of meat. "You just go, 'Ooh I'm hungry.'"
"I really think you should take that off," said Lady Gaga
As the pop star recoiled in disgust, James said: "Gaga look at me. If you can't take it, how do you think they felt at the VMAs?"
"I really think you should take that off," she replied.
The chat show host also tried on Lady Gaga's white Brit Awards dress, wearing a matching wig and mask.

The singer was promoting her new album Joanne
The Bad Romance singer, who was promoting her new album Joanne, also opened up about her writing process – and revealed that it only took a few minutes to write some of her most popular songs.
"I wrote Just Dance in ten minutes. Poker Face was ten minutes. Born This Way was just ten minutes," she said.

Lady Gaga takes the wheel in hilarious Carpool Karaoke with James Corden

Lady Gaga gave James Corden a fright as she took to the wheel during his chat show’s popular Carpool Karaoke segment.

The singer, who passed her driving test a few months ago, was offered the chance to swap seats with the British TV presenter on his commute.

Unsure, she struggled to set herself up and admitted she “can’t see very well”.

Instructing her to pull away, James asked if she had learnt any hand signals for driving in New York, to which she put her middle finger up.

Putting on a helmet as the car lurched forward, he joked: “I don’t know if I feel safe in this environment.”

Lady Gaga also admitted that her father “cried” when she finally got her licence at the age of 30.

During the 15-minute piece, the eccentric star and James sang some of her biggest hits together, including Bad Romance, Poker Face and Edge Of Glory.

While driving around Los Angeles together, they also belted out tracks from her new album Joanne – Perfect Illusion and Million Reasons.

Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – discussed her collection of “at least 400 pieces” of Michael Jackson’s clothes, as well as her forthcoming Super Bowl half-time concert next year.

James asked if Michael’s clothes smell and probed the singer over the authenticity of the items before joking that he had been conned before when buying every member of boy band O-Town’s T-shirts.

Lady Gaga and James also jokingly re-enacted the moment she was offered the Super Bowl gig, with the comic taking on the role of “Dave from the NFL”.

More humorous moments came when the host of The Late Late Show donned some of Lady Gaga’s most famous costumes, including the yellow caution tape from her Telephone music video and the meat dress she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

Lady Gaga explained her unique style mantra, saying: “The point is to be unfashionable.”

Following the broadcast of Carpool Karaoke, The Late Late Show’s executive producer Ben Winston tweeted: “This one’s special. We’ve wanted this carpool since we started the show.

Ciara is pregnant after abstaining from sex before wedding three months ago

The couple shared the happy news they are expecting their first child together on Instagram Tuesday, which so happened to be the singer’s 31st birthday.

“On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.. and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give,” she captioned her a beautiful photo of her and Wilson cradling her bump.

The NFL star also posted the same black and white portrait writing, “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful.#BabyWilsonOnTheWay.”

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Wilson, 27, and the “Goodies” songstress were engaged in March after a year-long courtship. Wilson proposed with a huge sparkler in the Seychelles following Paris Fashion Week.

The couple said their “I do”s four months later at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. The bride was outfitted in a custom Cavalli Couture gown made up of white silk tulle, glass beading, Chantilly lace and a floral motif, while the groom opted for a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure black six-button peak lapel set of evening tails — and of course, little Future had a custom Armani suit of his own to match.

“I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many , but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train … and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,” Wilson said shortly after their nuptials. “Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close.”

And his new bride can relate, telling PEOPLE in August, “This is the happiest I have ever been.”
