Date set for Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer

bruce jenner

Bruce Jenner has been planning a lengthy sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC for several months, though it was unknown when said interview would air – until now, that is. ABC revealed yesterday that a two hour special aptly titled Bruce Jenner – The Interview will air Friday, April 24th at 9pm.

The interview was apparently filmed a couple of months ago, right around the time his intention to transition became public (though “became public” seems like a stretch since Bruce has never confirmed this, even to this day), so it should be interesting to see what’s discussed.

“Bruce’s primary goal is to bring awareness to this issue in order to help others [in the transgender community],” a source told PEOPLE. “He is not sure that E! and a reality show is the best format to do that.” 

Jenner “wants this to be taken seriously so that [his situation] can have the most positive impact on society’s perception of the transgender community,” said the source. 

Incidentally, the entire Kardashian clan is due to be out of the country in Armenia when this interview airs. April 24th is also apparently the anniversary of the Armenian genocide, but the Kardashians have claimed their trip to Armenia on that date has nothing to do with that, so… yeah.

‘Furious 7′ is killin’ it at the box office

furious 7

I’ll admit it – I haven’t actually seen any of the Fast & Furious movies. Well, I’ve kinda seen part of one of them (no idea which one), but it was on in the background and I was distracted with something else, so I couldn’t tell you what happened other than Vin Diesel speeding down a dirt road trying to get someone who I think, if I remember right, was Jordana Brewster or Michelle Rodriguez off the back of a speeding train. Somehow, I feel like that one scene probably accurately sums up the entire series, but I’m probably wrong. People LOVE this shit – to the point that Furious 7, the latest installment in the franchise, brought in a whopping $143.6 million in North America alone during its opening weekend, as Variety reports.

That establishes a new high-water mark for the month of April, blowing past the $95 million debut of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and standing as the highest-grossing kickoff for any film in the “Fast and Furious” franchise. It also ranks ninth among the top 10 openings in history.

It’s also the highest opening since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire back in 2013, which is pretty impressive. Chances are people turned up to see this largely because it was Paul Walker‘s final on-screen appearance, so the whole thing was a bit of a memorial for him.

So shoot straight with me – have any of you seen Furious 7 and does it live up to the hype? Are you a fan of the series at large?

Harvey Weinstein is being questioned over an alleged sexual assault

harvey weinstein

Uh oh – this is bad news. Harvey Weinstein is being questioned by the NYPD in regards to an alleged sexual assault in which he is said to have groped a woman. The incident is said to have taken place between Weinstein and a 22-year-old woman last week in New York City’s Tribeca neighbourhood.

From Variety:

The woman accused the Weinstein Co. boss of touching her breasts and hips, police confirmed. The Daily News, which broke the story, reported that the incident took place at around 6 p.m. Friday at the Tribeca Film Center.

But another source told Variety that there were no official events held at the Tribeca Film Center on Friday night, and the Weinstein Co. shares office space with Tribeca Enterprises. Police could not immediately confirm if the alleged assault took place at Weinstein’s offices or in another part of the building.

An investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed. Neither the district attorney’s office nor the Weinstein Co. responded to requests for comment. Weinstein is expected to attend the New York premiere of his latest drama “Woman in Gold” at MoMA on Monday night with star Helen Mirren.

Huh. This all seems a bit random to just be bullshit, but there aren’t many details available at this point. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more as they become available (IF they become available).

Chloe Sevigny calls Jennifer Lawrence “annoying” and “too crass”

chloe sevigny jennifer lawrence

In the past, I’ve always kinda liked Chloe Sevigny. She’s unobtrusive, has pretty good fashion sense and… well, I guess that’s enough to make her okay, right? I don’t mind when people tell it like it is, but when you start talking shit on people in the press for no reason, then I’mma have to raise my eyebrow. So what’s Chloe done? Well, she’s calling out Jennifer Lawrence.

During an interview with V Magazine, Chloe was asked if she’s worried about being typecast (as what??????), to which she replied:

Do you still worry you’re being typecast? 
CS I’m afraid that maybe people think there’s more personality than acting ability. What I did on Big Love, Hit & Miss, and American Horror Story, it’s not like I’m just playing the same character over and over again. I would like to be respected more as an actress. It’s not like I can complain about anything. I think I’ve had great opportunities, but you can always have more.

Nowadays, you can’t be an actor without having a big personality to match. You were a prototype for that. 
CS So much is about marketing and selling the product. They’ll have a really peppy funny girl on the talk show rounds, and everybody adores her and loves her and wants to be her or fuck her, and then so many more people want to watch the movie or TV show. I understand that star quality, how much value that carries. I love when a movie star is a great movie star. I think Angelina Jolie is a great movie star. I don’t think I can be that, or just be an actor. I don’t think I have the charisma. Which is probably why I never reached another level. I like Emma Stone. Whenever she’s herself, she’s really cute. Jennifer Lawrence I find annoying. Too crass.

Look, Jennifer Lawrence isn’t anyone’s cup of tea, fine, but why even talk about your fellow women in the press? It’s not like she was asked what she thinks about JLaw. Also, I just find it interesting that a woman who’s been persecuted for her choice in film roles (Brown Bunny was nothing if not “crass”) would call out another female for that. Where’s the solidarity? Or at least the silence. SMH.

Noel Gallagher isn’t a Taylor Swift fan, then?

noel gallagher taylor swift

Oasis was great back in the day, sure, but now Liam and Noel Gallagher are washed up has-beens who are better known for being total dickheads who talk shit about pretty much everyone on earth (including each other) than they are for their once-great music. Noel has a special brand of asshole-ness, though, and his latest rant was against Taylor Swift and her songwriting abilities.

From Rolling Stone:

What about Taylor Swift? She’s a pop star, but many people praise her talent as a songwriter.
[Laughs] Who says that? Her parents?

Lots of people.
Who’s “people”? Name these people. You’re fucking lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you fucking know it.

Haha, well, okay, fair enough. Taylor isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You know who IS golden is Noel’s book? One Direction, of course – more particularly, Harry Styles.

What about One Direction, do you like them?
I know Harry Styles. We’ve hung out a couple of times. They’re lovely lads. But I’ve got to say, I have difficulties with people who don’t write their own songs, who’ve got a team of songwriters who work for your record label.

And there you have it. Noel Gallagher’s thoughts on the world of pop. But wait – I’ll leave you with one bonus quote:

Do you listen to much pop?
No. It’s fucking awful. Modern pop music is bland nonsense. There isn’t even a word yet that’s capable of describing it. If it was a color, it would be beige. Do you know what color beige is?

I do, yeah.
It’s like a milky brown. Not for me.

Cool beans.
