ONTD Original: An Exploration of Bieber's Faith Through The Lens of His Instagram Account

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 01:15:06 GMT

As all of us on ONTD are well aware by now, Bieber has become super religious in recent years and has joined the Hillsong cult church, which boasts several other celebrity followers and promotes some very questionable attitudes and beliefs. If you aren't familiar with Hillsong, check out this ONTD original by saemcrh.For a while now, Bieber has been using his very interesting* Instagram account to preach about Jesus and Hillsong to his impressionable young fanbase. Let's take a look at the many ways in which Bieber chooses to spread the word of his Lord:1. Through His "Art" https://instagram.com/p/BdT-Du6jaJO Bieber makes art now to express his love for Jesus. One such piece he made is this jizzy cross. 2. Advertising ChristAre you ever tired, rundown, or depressed, ONTD? Bieber's got you! He spends his spare time writing advertising copy for Christ! https://instagram.com/p/BctUcvwjLm1 Side effects may include, but are not limited to: frequent grammar mistakes, anti-abortion beliefs, thinking homosexuality is a choice, an aversion to scientific ideas like evolution, and a renewed interest in Creed that might make others wary of your judgment.3. He Celebrates Religious Holidays https://instagram.com/p/BhCfaMkDMGJ Fun!4. He Puts It In Plain Text https://instagram.com/p/BUKQerMDbx6 https://instagram.com/p/BctHoYlDMTs 5. He Loves Religious Music! https://instagram.com/p/BV16kRCDRBE 6. And Memes! https://instagram.com/p/BV3OQ56DKsd 7. He Promotes Pastors https://instagram.com/p/BVdBznqjEZD If you look up this video on YouTube, the comments section is filled with Beliebers trying to make this video of a pastor go viral. But who is this Bieber approved and promoted pastor?I'm sure you're already familiar with "hipster pastor" Carl Lentz that Bieber is apparently attached at the hip with. Well, it appears the man in this video Bieber is promoting on his Instagram might be the original Pastor Lentz, with just as many celebrity ties. This pastor, Rich Wilkerson Jr. is the pastor of Vous church and officiated Kim and Kanye's wedding. Oh, and his father runs Trinity Church in Miami (which Wilkerson Jr's Vous church started under) - a church that believes in the rapture, divine healing, speaking in tongues (something Wilkerson admits he has done himself), and that all parts of the Bible are final authority on faith and conduct. It is a part of a group of several other churches called the Assemblies of God - you may remember them from trying to get the Boy Scouts to stop admitting gay members and taking issue with Obamacare covering birth control.Both The Miami New Times and Esquire have done interesting and extensive write ups on Wilkerson Jr. in the past (who, according to Esquire, genuinely believes he looks like Leonardo DiCaprio. Surejan.gif).The Miami New Times articles also talks about Wilkerson Jr's Relationship with Kanye and includes a list of other celebrities who have been noticed with Wilkerson Jr:A quick scan of Wilkerson's Instagram feed shows just the latest to pass through the door: R&B crooner Maxwell, new Miami Heat player Luol Deng, former Real Housewife Larissa Pippen, NFL legend Clinton Portis, TV host Giuliana Rancic.Wilkerson's peers are drawing notable crowds with an everyone's-welcome, it's-all-good message. A 35-year-old pastor named Judah Smith holds a weekly Bible study at the Beverly Hills Montage Hotel that pulls industry figures including Selena Gomez. Carl Lentz, also in his mid-30s, runs Hillsong NYC; his Manhattan branch of the Australian megachurch has been likened to a nightclub, with 6,000 attendees packing six sermons each Sunday. Celebripunk Justin Bieber and NBA baller Kevin Durant were both baptized by Lentz. I think it's important to note that the rise of these "cool hipster" celebrity pastors seem to largely be using tactics to target vulnerable and impressionable young people. And although the two articles sourced above are a few years old, it's always a nice refresher to remind people of the kinds of values celebrities like Bieber are sharing with his 98.8 m[...]

Where are they now? Scandipop stars of the 90s

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 22:31:44 GMT

Dr AlbanUnlike for example Dr Dre or Dr Phil, Dr Alban is actually a doctor (of odontology, not partying). He practiced as a dentist before finding euro dance success. He seems to have been pretty sensible with the money he made in the 90s and is currently based in Stockholm with his family and working the nostalgia circuit. https://instagram.com/p/Bhl-OgcHwm4 RednexOriginators of a diabolical novelty hit, these fun loving Swedes found success appropriating white American culture, calling themselves bullshit like Ken Tacky and Mary Joe (real names Arne and Annika). Incredibly, Rednex are still going, but after going through a hilarious FOURTEEN lineup changes none of the original members remain. Mary Joe, the blonde singer people might remember, is today a life coach lecturing about how the power of thought and something called "rain drop treatment" helped cure her cancer. https://instagram.com/p/BbSGwClAqma Leila KA formative figure in Swedish rap, the outspoken, unpredictable Moroccan-Swede has had a rough few decades. She's struggled with mental illness, drug abuse, had trouble with the law and been homeless for many years. Every once in a while she'll make a surprise appearance on the nostalgia circuit but her rare interviews tend to be about how someone (the police, the label, or even the journalist interviewing her) stole all her shit, so a comeback is probably not forthcoming. A documentary about her life is available on Youtube.WhigfieldDIDIDADADA??? The former model and singer of a once inescapeable hit is currently recording as Sannie Carlson. She recently competed in the Danish Eurovision final with her song Boys On Girls and a very natural-looking new pair of lips . She still can't sing for shit, bless. AquaLene Nystrøm and Søren Rasted (the dude with the spiky blonde hair, not the baldo) were a real life couple and divorced after 16 years of marriage in 2017. Lene tried it with a solo career (remember that it's your duty duty, to shake that booty booty song? no?) but has found more success as an actress, starring in several major Norwegian productions (ie not that major). https://instagram.com/p/BhSExM_HsXP M2MMarit (the one with the guitar) found solo singer-songwriter success with her stellar debut Under The Surface and its less interesting follow-ups, while Marion (the one with the hair) has had a truly weird career spanning Meat Loaf duets, any TV format that will have her and grossout comedy. They are no longer dating Hansons - Marit got married in 2016, and Marion got married in 2013 (and divorced in 2015). https://instagram.com/p/BgGaIxMFB3V https://instagram.com/p/BhkChNAlbKf Ace of BaseIncredibly successful in their day, Ace of Base had a wild ride in the 90s. They sold millions of albums, had their hit The Sign excruciatingly covered by the ugly middle kid in Full House, Ulf's past as a teenage nazi made headlines and one of the members was even attacked with a knife by a German stan. After the group ended Jenny (the brunette) became a Christian singer, Malin (the blonde) decided she wanted out of the spotlight for good and the guys are involved in some start-ups and writing but seems like just rich people hobbies tbh. All of them have lowkey family lives. https://instagram.com/p/BLeIazSBR-S Army of LoversLiberté, égalité, sexualité! The eurotrashiest pop act of them all has gone on to have a lot of self-inflicted drama, mainly. Bard and Barda, miffed that the amply asseted La Camilla got all the attention, fired her from the band. She went on to have an affair with the married king of Sweden. Their reunion album was suitably called Big Battle of the Egos. (OP story: my cousin told me these guys were gay when I was like 9 and I was like hwat. how do u know) https://instagram.com/p/BLWSOYJDpaP DeepikaWhile she found pop fame only in her native Norway, I'm going to include Deepika because of her impressive postscript. She made wave[...]

Verne Troyer dead at 49

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 20:28:13 GMT



The source says he was on some sort of life support after being taken to the hospital earlier this month. Cops got a report that he was drunk and suicidal, and he was treated for possible alcohol poisoning.

Throughout this ordeal, "he was baptized while surrounded by his family."

He had struggled with alcoholism for years and had been to rehab many times.

He was born with a genetic disorder known as achondroplasia dwarfism, but growing up on a farm in Michigan, he said his parents never treated him differently than his siblings, who were average-sized.

(ONTD Original) Dancing On My Own: 12 Emotional Songs to Cry and Dance

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 19:58:14 GMT

☔The ICONIC Robyn song "Dancing On My Own" was a hit in 2010 and is renowned as one of pop's finest moments. Rich in melody, rich in emotion... it's that song that picks you up after a good cry and keeps you moving while your tears ain't even dried up yet. #Crying #in #the #club, if you will. 💧Most of the following 2010's songs have those synths (I don't know how to describe it, very 80's maybe), and are about break-ups, being left out, or just being vulnerable. They will range from uptempo, midtempo, and on the ballad side (I really wanted to avoid ballads to make the post danceable but I guess you might consider some of these to be), but you can still find a way to groove along to like with DOMO.🔮OP's note: Yes I know I could add a million Drake songs. This list is not in any particular rank, just numbered, and is not an end all be all list because we like to #KeepTheConversationGoing and I cannot feel #CasualAboutCasualties that is the offense ya'll take on these lists)🎧So cozy on up, and click play: now!▷ 12. Body Talk by Foxes (2015)Notes: If we had to choose a successor to DOMO this'd be it. I mean "Body Talk" v Body Talk the album... shamltzy 'in my feelings' choreo... Epitome of what this list is about.Days like theseI don't want you backNow I feel freeGonna to keep it that like that yeah▷ 11. Make It Up by Shura (2016)One girl on the last trainSmall change in the universe, and sheSpeaks to herself out loudNobody ever looks up at her▷ 10. Fever by Carly Rae Jepsen (2016)Notes: Originally I was going to add "When I Needed You" bc lyrically it fits, but the key of the song is a little too sunny. The fact that the demo for WINY was more angsty is fascinating.You wanna break my heart, alrightI caught your fever, I'll be feeling it foreverYou want a brand new start, alrightI caught your fever, I'll be feeling it forever▷ 9. Never Enough by Allie X (2015) Love, you can chase itBut it always leaves you behindTry to escape itBut it's all that keeps you alive, oh▷ 8. Final Song by MØ (2016)But when you're gone the music goesI lose my rhythm, lose my soulSo hear me out before you say the night is overI want you to know that we gotta, gotta carry onSo don't let this be our final song▷ 7. Somebody Else by The 1975 (2016)Notes: A modern day classic, a staple for this generation.I don't want your bodyBut I hate to think about you with somebody elseOur love has gone coldYou're intertwining your soul with somebody else▷ 6. The Breakup by LANY (2017)Notes: They actually have a lot of songs that's very same-y. Not 2 b hipster but I literally liked them since their first EP.You think you wanna be, you wanna be aloneJust wait until you're crying on the shower floorIt hits you in the chest, 'bout every day you're done'Cause once you let it go, you better know it's goneOoh oohIt's never the same, uh, yeah, after the breakup▷ 5. Marry the Night by Lady Gaga (2011)I'm gonna marry the darkGonna make love to the starkI'm a soldier to myOwn emptiness, I'm a winner▷ 4. Kiss It Better by Rihanna (2016)Notes: Legend stewie est. the pairing between this song and this gif.Oh what are you willing to do?Oh, tell me what you’re willing to do?Kiss it, kiss it better, baby▷ 3. Deep End by Lykke Li (2018)Notes: This was the song that highkey made me want to make this list. Emotional and a surprising trap beat. I'm loving Contemporarre LiWait up, don't wanna wait up for you, babyStill I wait up, lonely in the canyonNo love, there's no love, reflecting in the glow ofMillion dollar man▷ 2. On My Way by PRETTYMUCH (2018)Notes: Like Robyn's song, this is a 'I'm going to the club cause I know my girl is out there with someone else' bop.All I can think about isAll I can think about isSome guy trying to pull you closeThinking he might take you homeAll I can think about isAll I can[...]

Evan Rachel Wood recently confirmed that she’ll receive equal pay on the HBO drama starting next season, and now Thandie Newton has done similarly.

“We’re all equal across the board. It’s really exciting. It’s unprecedented. It’s goodness; it shatters so much calcified pain, resentment, frustration. It just shatters it.” 

She doesn’t plan on being involved with projects that don’t follow suit in the future.
“I wouldn’t do anything if it didn’t. Definitely not. Fuck that. It literally sets a precedent, and [HBO is] leading the way, which is amazing.”

UFO death cult film "The Endless" roundup: exclusive clip & interview with the filmmakers

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 19:34:48 GMT

The Endless is OP's favorite UFO death cult film, is still certified fresh at 96%, and as of this weekend the indie horror film is now playing multiple cities across the US (more below).

Here's a recently released clip from the film to help entice you to go see it:


Recent interview with the filmmakers at rogerebert.com (no spoilers):


Summary:

  • The film debuted at Tribeca last year.

  • In the film, the filmmakers (Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead) play two brothers who escaped a cult when they were younger, but both remember the cult quite differently. They receive a video from the cult in the mail, and after watching it, Aaron convinces Justin to go back one more time and visit.

  • They discuss how personal, but not autobiographical, the film is.

  • They talk about leaving things unseen in the film, and mostly because they didn't have the budget! (Another reason why they opted to play the leads in the film).

  • One of their inspirations for the film was "Manson Family Vacation."

  • They discuss the difficulty in getting films like this known about and seen. (This is where they should have said, "Well there's a girl on livejournal who stans us...

The 25 (5) most re-watchable movies on Netflix

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 19:28:36 GMT

(image)

23. Inglorious Basterds
Almost every scene is a standout, such as the suspenseful opening sequence and the underground bar. Each is carefully constructed to build to its climax, and the movie as a whole makes a similar journey. Though long, the movie holds your attention and makes you want to see it through.

18. The Truman Show
Released in 1998, this film was ahead of its time in examining how reality TV (and later social media and internet surveillance) could invade an average person's life. For example, it touches on how the "showrunner" attempts to control Truman by creating situations that he knows--based on data and analytics--will effectively manipulate his emotions.

12. The Prestige
Narrative ambiguity that leaves things (timeline, character motives, and even final outcomes) open to interpretation makes this movie a fun one to see for a second or third time.

4. Mulan
Another 1998 classic, Mulan is one of the last traditionally animated feature films from Disney. It tells a fresh story with themes that were uncommon in children's entertainment, such as war, duty, and honor. It's also different from other Disney films of its era in that the main characters are less talkative than other heroes.

2. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Though it's part of a larger epic, the film tells a complete story on its own. It's well paced, develops its cast of compelling characters and sees them grow as people, features intense action sequences and battle scenes, and ends with dual sadness and hope.

The rest of the list + rationale is at the source.



Prince abused numerous women while on drugs in released police interviews

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 19:27:27 GMT

(image)

About two weeks after Prince's death, Sinead O'Connor was interviewed among others in an investigation pertaining to his death. In the files released by police, Sinead tells of instances where Prince would be violent with women he knew, had "visions" from god that an album was evil, so he wouldn't release it.

“In the case of Prince, everyone is mistaken who believes he did not have a drug habit the entirety of his life. He used hard drugs commonly,” she told police in a May 2, 2016 interview, as noted by The Blast. “I know this because I spent time with the man.”

O'Connor divulged that he would go to another room - presumably to do the drugs- and come back violent. "He had two women in the band, Wendy and Lisa,” she said. “Wendy was in the hospital for six weeks after he beat the shit out of her.”

Sinead tells that more women will be coming forward in time.

Natalie Portman Breaks Silence on Refusing Israel Trip: "I Am Not Part of the BDS Movement"

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 18:33:35 GMT



Natalie Portman has released a statement on her decision to not attend the Genesis Prize ceremony.

My decision not to attend the Genesis Prize ceremony has been mischaracterized by others. Let me speak for myself. I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation. I treasure my Israeli friends and family, Israeli food, books, art, cinema, and dance. Israel was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from today’s atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power.

Please do not take any words that do not come directly from me as my own.

This experience has inspired me to support a number of charities in Israel. I will be announcing them soon, and I hope others will join me in supporting the great work they are doing.

11 (5) new books recommended by critics and editors at The New York Times

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 18:32:58 GMT

Expert storytellers, expert thinkers, expert biographers of expert subjects: 11 New Books We Recommend This Week https://t.co/w12WyValoR— New York Times Books (@nytimesbooks) April 21, 2018THE OVERSTORYAn Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. These four, and five other strangers—each summoned in different ways by trees—are brought together in a last and violent stand to save the continent’s few remaining acres of virgin forest.In his twelfth novel, National Book Award winner Richard Powers delivers a sweeping, impassioned novel of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond, exploring the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.STRAY CITYTwenty-three-year-old artist Andrea Morales escaped her Midwestern Catholic childhood—and the closet—to create a home and life for herself within the thriving but insular lesbian underground of Portland, Oregon. But one drunken night, reeling from a bad breakup and a friend’s betrayal, she recklessly crosses enemy lines and hooks up with a man. To her utter shock, Andrea soon discovers she’s pregnant—and despite the concerns of her astonished circle of gay friends, she decides to have the baby.A decade later, when her precocious daughter Lucia starts asking questions about the father she’s never known, Andrea is forced to reconcile the past she hoped to leave behind with the life she’s worked so hard to build.A thoroughly modern and original anti-romantic comedy, Stray City is an unabashedly entertaining literary debut about the families we’re born into and the families we choose, about finding yourself by breaking the rules, and making bad decisions for all the right reasons.THE SANDMANThe #1 internationally best-selling thriller from the author of The Hypnotist tells the chilling story of a manipulative serial killer and the two brilliant police agents who must try to beat him at his own game.Late one night, outside Stockholm, Mikael Kohler-Frost is found wandering. Thirteen years earlier, he went missing along with his younger sister. They were long thought to have been victims of Sweden's most notorious serial killer, Jurek Walter, now serving a life sentence in a maximum security psychiatric hospital. Now Mikael tells the police that his sister is still alive and being held by someone he knows only as the Sandman. Years ago, Detective Inspector Joona Linna made an excruciating personal sacrifice to ensure Jurek's capture.
