Taylor Swift is taking no prisoners! On Sunday night, the musician debuted the music video for her newest single "Look What You Made Me Do,"and she made one thing abundantly clear—the old Taylor is dead. But who killed her? Well, if you look closely enough at her video, she leaves a lot of clues. For starters, there was some not-so-subtle shade thrown at Katy Perry. In the video Taylor crashes a lambo, which just so happens to be the same one driven by Katy in her 2008 video "Waking Up In Vegas."And if that wasn't enough, she's holding a Grammy. One of many that she owns, and how many does Katy have? Zero. Major burn.
Nicki Minaj has broken her silence following a Friday night (07Sep18) scuffle with rap rival Cardi B. The two MCs clashed at a star-studded Harper's Bazaar party for New York Fashion Week after Cardi accused the Super Bass hitmaker of disrespecting her and her baby daughter, Kulture. At one point, Cardi lunged and reportedly threw a shoe at Minaj, but Nicki declined to press charges and she addressed the drama on her Apple Music Queen Radio show on Beats 1 on Monday, revealing she still felt "humiliated" about their headline-grabbing encounter. "The other night I was a part of something so mortifying, so humiliating to go through in front of upper echelon people - it's not about black or white - people who have their lives together," she said. "I was mortified... I could not believe how humiliated I felt... how we - and I use the term 'we' loosely - made ourselves look." Taking aim at reports suggesting she poked fun at her rival's baby, Nicki added, "I would never discuss anyone's child. "It's so sad for someone to pin that on me. I would never talk about anyone's child or parenting, I don't give a s**t... You know I didn't say or never did talk about anyone's child... I am not a clown, that's clown s**t." Minaj insists she didn't retaliate after Cardi's shoe came flying at her because, "I'm such an ill n**ga, I didn't feel the need to defend myself that night." Security staff at the party escorted a shoeless Cardi out of the venue. The Bodak Yellow star has since confirmed it was a comment Nicki allegedly made about her baby that upset her: "I've let a lot of s**t slide!" she wrote on Sunday (09Sep18) via Instagram. "I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags (money), f**k up the way I eat! "You've threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop f**kin with them (sic)!! I let you talk big s**t about me!! I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea!! "But when you mention my child, you choose to make comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f**kin off!! I've worked to hard and come too far to let anybody f**k with my success (sic)!!!!" Cardi previously played down reports of a nasty feud between herself and Nicki, but confessed the two had "issues".
Get ready to re-enter the Matrix. Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct a fourth film set in the world of “The Matrix,” with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement on Tuesday. In addition to Wachowski, the script was also written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Wachowski is also producing with Grant Hill. Sources say the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.
Val Kilmer will star opposite Tom Cruise in the "Top Gun: Maverick," an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap. Kilmer will join Cruise in the long-awaited sequel to Tony Scott's 1986 action blockbuster, in which Cruise's aviator Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is now a mentor to a new generation of U.S. Navy fighter pilots. A rep for Paramount declined to comment on the casting of Kilmer, who has been spotted around the San Diego hotel the studio has been using since production began last week. Kilmer, who played aviator Tom "Iceman" Kazansky and Cruise's chief rival in the original film, is repped by CAA and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof and Fishman. Titled "Top Gun: Maverick," the new film is set to hit theaters July 12, 2019. Joseph Kosinski is directing from a script by Eric Warren Singer, Peter Craig and Justin Marks. (Tony Scott had been circling the sequel project before his death in 2012.) The original action movie — which also starred Anthony Edwards and Kelly McGillis — followed the exploits of a flight academy and its students. Kilmer previously teased on Facebook that he was "offered #topgun2 — not often you get to say 'yes' without reading the script…" Shortly after the post, however, Kilmer updated his Facebook post and said he had been premature in making the announcement: "This is a long way off so calm down. This has been talked about for a long long time and being offered a role is very different from doing a role. I jumped the gun with my post. I jumped the topgun… An innocent mistake. It was just such a wonderful phone call with my agent…" "Top Gun: Maverick" is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and David Ellison for Skydance. Cruise also serves as a producer.
