Dennis Quaid Onset Rant: Real Or Fake?

TYT Network

Recently, a video surfaced of an onset meltdown by Dennis Quaid.

According to Variety: “In the expletive-laden tirade, seemingly captured on a crew member’s phone, Quaid takes someone to task for walking onto set and interrupting his line, before an off-camera speaker tries to calm him down. ‘Don’t f—ing ‘Dennis’ me, I am doing my job here, I’m a pro! This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on,’ Quaid retorts, hurling a few more insults before apparently storming off set.”

Entertainment Weekly claims the rant was fake, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t behind it.

It came from the comedy outlet Funny or Die.

Argentina Issues Warrant For Arrest Of Justin Bieber

Argentina thinks Justin Bieber should be in jail.

An Argentine judge ordered the arrest of pop star Justin Bieber if he sets foot in the country after the singer failed to face questions about an alleged assault at a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013, a court secretary said on Friday.

Local photographer Diego Pesoa accused Bieber and one of his bodyguards of lashing out at him when he tried to take a picture of the star as he left the club in the capital’s trendy Palermo Hollywood neighborhood, states Reuters.

The Argentine judge issued a warrant calling for Bieber to immediately be placed in detention.

The 2013 incident happened near a Buenos Aires nightclub, where the local photographer says Bieber sent his bodyguards to assault him after he tried to take a picture.

Bieber has since refused to report for questioning on the allegations, states the website

According to Gawker: “Canadian by birth but a true cosmopolitan of misconduct, Bieber is accused of ordering his bodyguards to beat a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013. Since then, Bieber has failed to return to the country for questioning, resulting in yesterday’s request for ‘immediate detention.'”

MSNBC Talks With Carole King


According to her website, Carole King wrote her first #1 hit at the age of 17, penning “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” for the Shirelles with then-husband Gerry Goffin.

In 1960, King made her solo record debut with a song called “Baby Sittin’,” and two years later, her demo of “It Might As Well Rain Until September” made the Top 25 in the U.S., climbing all the way to #3 on the British charts. Lennon & McCartney were well aware of her work; they were quoted as saying that all they “ever wanted to be was like Goffin and King.”

In the late ’60s, soon after Goffin and King’s “(You make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” was immortalized by Aretha Franklin, Carole moved to Los Angeles with her daughters, Louise and Sherry, setting up house in Laurel Canyon and forming The City, who released one album, 1968’s Now That Everything’s Been Said. King released her first solo album, Writer, in 1970.

1971’s Tapestry took King to the pinnacle. It spoke personally to every one of her contemporaries and provided the spiritual musical backdrop to the decade. While King was in the studio recording Tapestry, Taylor recorded King’s “You’ve Got a Friend,” taking the song all the way to #1.

In a first for a female writer/artist, Tapestry won all three of the key Grammy Awards—record, song and album of the year—as well as best female vocalist honors for King. With more than 25 million units sold, Tapestry remained the best-selling album by a female artist for a quarter century, and King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums.

In 1987, King was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and, a year later, Goffin and King were awarded the National Academy of Songwriters’ Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1990, the duo was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2002, King was honored with the prestigious Mercer Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Two years later, Goffin and King received the Trustee Award from the Recording Academy.

Carole King is the voice of a generation. Her life is even a Broadway hit, called Beautiful. Here, King tells Ronan Farrow about navigating obstacles from gender stereotypes to domestic abuse. She also discusses political relationships from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.

Iggy Azalea Quits Social Media Over Body Bullying

Review: The Boy Next Door

Some sources are claiming the Jennifer Lopez movie The Boy Next Door is certain to induce groans.

Connect Savannah claims it is reminiscent of the dopey ‘women in peril’ thrillers from the years surrounding Y2K. Like bombs that featured the slumming likes of Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and Ashley Judd.

The movie stars Lopez as Claire Peterson, a high school teacher living alone with her teenage son Kevin (Ian Nelson) in the aftermath of learning about her husband Garrett’s (John Corbett) infidelity.

Husband Garrett admits he made a mistake and wants to reconcile, but Claire is torn between giving him another chance or divorcing. When hunky Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door to tend to his grandfather (Jack Wallace), Claire is interested in him.

Noah is 19 years old, but life circumstances (namely, the deaths of his parents) have led to him still being in high school. Nevertheless, Noah’s hot for teacher, and when he makes a pass at her, she responds favorably. The morning after their sexual encounter, Claire realizes she made a mistake.

Connect Savannah:

“It’s at this precise point Noah goes from 0 to 60 mph on the psycho scale.”


“No sooner has she attempted the next morning’s walk of shame, however, than Noah turns on a dime into an obsessive stalker, appearing unannounced at her home and somehow getting a seat in her high-school literature class. The film’s initial formulaic competence gives way to outright preposterousness rather quickly, hinging on idiot-plot character motivations, ‘It was only a cat!’ jump scares and computer files that may as well be labeled ‘Evil Schemes, 2012-2014.’”

Connect Savannah:

“As for Claire, she’s the typical dunderheaded heroine found in thrillers of this low caliber, making so many mistakes in dealing with her stalker that you wonder how she can possibly possess the brainpower to master a light switch, let alone teach Homer to bored teens.”

Screen Daily:

“With Rob Cohen (The Fast And The Furious) directing from a clunky script by Barbara Curry, the film morphs from would-be sexy melodrama to harder edged thriller and ends up with a near-horror climax.”
