Kate Hudson releases her first single, 'Talk About Love?: good or boring'
If you told me Kate Hudson did an album ten years ago and it faded into obscurity I would believe you. Shes just someone who has her finger in a lot of pies, like Fabletics, a vodka brand and a supplement line. Shes said Im an Aries. I get bored. I gotta keep moving, which might explain her latest foray into music. Kate has released a single co-written with venerable multi-Oscar nominated Linda Perry and Kates fiance, musician Danny Fujikawa. Its called Talk about Love and its very mid, for lack of a better word. First heres People Magazines writeup about it. In her press release for the song, Kate said I wanted it to be something delicious and sexy and all the things that I believe in.

Kate Hudson?s debut single has landed!

The actress-turned-singer?s first song ?Talk About Love? has finally dropped after weeks of anticipation from fans, providing a burst of blended rock/pop sounds for listeners to enjoy.

In the song ? co-written with Linda Perry and Hudsons fianc Danny Fujikawa ? the actress, 44, celebrates having a love connection at the deepest level possible while belting out vocals over columns of synth, guitars and a jumping rhythm track guaranteed to raise the mood.

?You only have one first single,? Hudson said of her musical debut in a press release. ?And I wanted it to be something delicious and sexy and all the things that I believe in.?

?I wanted it to be open and seeking, searching to find something powerful. But I also wanted the music to be the rock, the pop, the dance music and even a bit of the alternative records I love,? she continued. ?It was a lot to put into one song, but thankfully, I had some wonderful people working with me. And so, here we are!?

Hudson worked independently with producer Johan Carlsson and Fujikawa to form a fresh sound for the song that also felt natural to her. The collaboration developed into the makings of an album which the actress has teased will be released later this year.

This single, which is below, isnt bad. I like the retro vibe, but its like a theme song on a CW show. Its budget Lady Gaga without the soul or variety. The refrain is OK and it grew on me I just dont find it memorable or catchy. Good for Kate for doing music if she wants though. There are so many other musicians who are doing complex, nuanced and haunting music who dont get much attention at all. Im thinking specifically of Chadwick Bosemans widow, Simone Ledward Boseman, who sings as sahn. Her music is phenomenal and some of her videos on YouTube have less than 2,000 views. Shes in a different genre and she does slower jams but they just have so much heart. Id love it if she got wider recognition. As for Kate, sometimes celebrities dabble in things they want to do rather than things theyre passionate about and it shows.

Heres that single from Kate.

Margot Robbie on her Oscar snub: the biggest award is that 'Barbie' shifted the culture

Margot Robbie on her Oscar snub: the biggest award is that 'Barbie' shifted the culture
It?s been more than a week since the Oscar nominations were announced and we learned that Oscar voters didn?t think Greta Gerwig deserved an Oscar nomination for directing Barbie, nor did the voters think Margot Robbie?s performance as Barbie was worthy of a Best Actress nom. Those same voters absolutely thought America Ferrera and Ryan Gosling were worthy of Oscar noms though, and Barbie is nominated for Best Picture, which means Margot is nominated as a producer. Greta is nominated in adapted screenplay because her original screenplay was ?adapted? from? dolls. Again, the whole thing is still shocking, ridiculous, sexist and asinine. AMPAS continues to look so foolish. Margot didn?t issue any statements about the snubs last week, but she took part in a SAG-AFTRA screening on Tuesday, and she ended up addressing the situation:

?There?s no way to feel sad when you know you?re this blessed,? Margot Robbie said during a panel at a special SAG screening on Tuesday night.

?Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director, because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is,? Robbie said. ?But it?s been an incredible year for all the films.?

Barbie is the only billion-dollar film solely directed by a woman, and it outstripped all other films at the box office last year, bringing home $1.4 billion worldwide. As Robbie said, the reaction to the film has become a kind of cultural phenomenon: ?I just suspect it?s bigger than us. It?s bigger than this movie, it?s bigger than our industry.?

Robbie also clearly pointed out that she is ?beyond ecstatic that we?ve got eight Academy Award nominations, it?s so wild.? Those nominations include Best Picture, Supporting Actress for America Ferrera; Supporting Actor for Ryan Gosling, Costume Design, Production Design and Best Adapted Screenplay for Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. ?Everyone getting the nods that they?ve had is just incredible, and the Best Picture nod,? Robbie said.

?We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact. And it?s already done that, and some, way more than we ever dreamed it would. And that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this.?

Robbie had the SAG screening audience laughing as she described listening in movie theater bathrooms for audience reactions and then being in a pub in Scotland overhearing a group of men on a bachelor party trip discussing the film. ?It was just truly fascinating,? she said. ?There were people at the table who refused to see the Barbie movie. One guy was like, ?Dude, it is a cultural moment, don?t you want to be a part of culture?? And the other guy was like, ?I?ll never see it,? and by the end he did want to see it. It was a whole thing.? Robbie recalled she couldn?t resist approaching the group to say hello. ?It took a full minute for them to realize, and I was practically out the door. And then they were like, ?Ohhhh!? It was very funny.?

?People?s reactions to the movie have been the biggest reward of this entire experience, whether it?s having a moment like that, or whether it?s listening in the bathrooms, or whether it?s seeing what people are writing online, or even just seeing how much Pink I can see in this room right now. I?ve never been a part of something like this. Not like this. I?ve done comic book stuff and that gets a big reaction, but this felt very different. It still feels very different. And I can?t think of a time when a movie?s had this effect on culture. And it?s amazing to be in the eye of the storm.?

[From Deadline]

A completely mature and measured response from a woman who executive produced and starred in a film about how women are diminished, marginalized and dismissed. What else can she say, really? ?Those fking misogynistic douchebags!? Of course not. She?s still got to play the game to some degree. I hate that she has to eat those snubs and she?s still expected to show up with a smile on her face, to be grateful for those eight nominations. If only there was a well-written speech about just that in Barbie!! But I also agree with her that Barbie?s cultural impact is huge, and the film?s impact on the industry is huge. Which makes it all the more egregious that she and Greta were snubbed.

Kim Kardashian is executive producing a BBC docuseries on Elizabeth Taylor

Kim Kardashian is executive producing a BBC docuseries on Elizabeth Taylor
I totally forgot that Kim Kardashian used to be and still is obsessed with Elizabeth Taylor. I mean, same Elizabeth Taylor was an amazing woman who lived a huge life full of drama, marriages, affairs, Oscars, diamonds, perfume, activism and more. Kim wishes! Kim actually got to meet Elizabeth Taylor in 2011 when she was sent to Taylor?s home to interview her. That was actually Elizabeth Taylor?s final interview. In any case, Kim is now executive producing a BBC docuseries on the life and times of Liz Taylor. Kim will appear in it too.

BBC Arts has commissioned Academy Award-winning production firm Passion Pictures (Searching for Sugar Man, Wham!) to make a three-part documentary series on Elizabeth Taylor, executive produced by and featuring Kim Kardashian. The BBC unveiled the project with the working title Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar on Monday, noting that Taylor is ?one of Hollywood?s most famous names.?

Executive produced by Kari Lia, Hamish Fergusson and Kardashian, the series promises to feature ?privileged access to those who knew her best, including members of Elizabeth Taylor?s family, friends, and colleagues from throughout her stellar career.? And it vows to shine the spotlight on ?a superstar who transformed not just Hollywood but fame itself, as she went from child star to highest-paid actress in the world.?

A show description also highlights: ?For too long the story of Elizabeth Taylor has been told as a soap opera. The eight marriages, the diamonds, the addictions. This series gives Elizabeth Taylor the significance she richly deserves, in all her incarnations: as an actor, rebel, business mogul, and activist ? to reveal how Taylor created the blueprint for modern celebrity.?

The series will take a deep dive into the legendary star?s craft and technique as an actor and ?how she reinvented the nature of fame, even as she smashed the glass ceiling in Hollywood, before going on to become a billion-dollar businesswoman, activist and advocate.?

The series promises to ?draw on never-before-heard audio tapes, interviews, and unseen TV footage, alongside rich archive of her movies.? It will also feature interviews with a range of stars who knew Taylor personally, including Kardashian, ?who conducted the last interview with her before she died, Dame Joan Collins, a friend and Hollywood contemporary who competed with Elizabeth for the role of Cleopatra, Margaret O?Brien, who went to school with her on the MGM backlot, close friend Carole Bayer Sager, leading scientist Dr. Anthony Fauci who worked alongside Elizabeth in the fight against AIDS, and others.?

Said Kardashian: ?Elizabeth Taylor was unapologetically herself, a fighter. She is proof that you can keep evolving and changing and have different chapters in your life ? and she paved the way for all of us who came after her with that blueprint.?

[From THR]

I wonder if they?ll interview Colin Farrell, who was a dear friend to Elizabeth in her final years she absolutely adored him and said that she saw a lot of Richard Burton in him. As for the docuseries? I know I should yell about this and I guess we should be disgusted at Kim or something? but I don?t hate it? The summary is correct Elizabeth Taylor did it first, she broke through so many glass ceilings, she was a huge AIDS activist, she used her fame to create wildly popular side-gigs like her perfume lines, and she did love to get married. I actually hope Kim helps introduce Generation TikTok to Elizabeth Taylor because they will be gagged.
