Lance Bass on Trump: 'You can’t always trust your leaders'

Mar 24, 2017 21

Lance Bass is getting serious. The former NSYNC boy bander has become a 37-year-old environmental activist — and a very outspoken one when it comes to President Donald Trump.

“Unfortunately, we can’t rely on our president for the first time in history,” Bass, a presenter at the Environmental Media Association Summit in Beverly Hills, told Fox News. “So we are going to have to do it ourselves. That is why organizations like EMA exist.

“You can’t always trust your leaders to do the right thing, so that is why we have to pick up the slack. And for the next four years, or however long ‘45’ is going to be in, we are going to have to pick up the slack and we are ready for that, and that’s what we were built for. I think we do a great job.”

The “My Kitchen Rules” star said environmental activism has always been important, “but it has never been so important as it is right now, because everything is getting defunded that has to do with helping this planet. And that is the scariest thing I have ever witnessed in my lifetime.

“To know half this country agrees with that, or is scammed to not think that that is dangerous, is really scary. I’m planning on having kids, and I want my grandkids and great-grandkids to have a healthy life on this planet, and we have to pre-empt that now.”

Bass said celebrity provides a platform for social, environmental and political advocacy.

“I think it’s very important,” he said. “We have a responsibility. If you have a fan base, I think you need to have a message, whether it’s environment, any kind of cause, you need to be passionate about what you believe in. You need to spread the good word and educate people.”

Being outspoken wasn’t always easy, Bass said.

“I’ve seen a lot of ignorance in this world,” he said. “I came from Mississippi, I’m a gay man, I was in a boy band — so I’ve seen a lot of hatred and ignorance over stupid things. So you just have to figure out how to talk about that, how to speak to people who don’t agree with you.

“That has been the tricky part for sure, and you learn. And it’s nice when you change people’s opinion.”

The March 23-34 EMA Summit focused on solutions of impact investing, sustainable corporations, environmental innovation and activism. Among the other presenters were Swedish-Canadian actress Malin Akerman and Canadian actress Emmanuelle Chirqui.

Tamron Hall: Not defined by 'Today' job

Mar 24, 2017 16

There were “two types of people” who reached out to Tamron Hall when she announced her exit from the “Today” show.

“Some would call and say, ‘Oh my God, are you OK?’ And I was like, ‘What happened? Who died?’ and then there were other people who said, ‘What’s next?’” she told a crowd at the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council’s Summit Salute on Thursday.

“I don’t want a friend who calls me saying, ‘Oh my God.’ It’s a job. It doesn’t define me. It doesn’t determine what I do … how I treat people. I’m going to always look you in your face and say, ‘Thank you’ and ‘Please’ — and if you make me mad, a good cuss word — but in the end, a title can’t define you. When your card no longer says anything beneath it, but your name, are you still you? Can you still savor the victory — the moment that you were able to take that dream? I never imagined that I would be on the ‘Today’ show.”

Hall was the keynote speaker at the event. The “Deadline Crime” host recently teased an upcoming special she’s working on, airing in April.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop publishes advice on how to have casual sex

Mar 24, 2017 15

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop company is dishing out sex advice and lots of it.

The weekly lifestyle site released their second annual Sex Issue on Thursday, which featured multiple articles concerning what happens between the sheets, including “Sex Toys (and More) for Every Type,” “The Thrill of Dating in Your 40s — and Beyond” as well as “How to Have (Good) Casual Sex.”

When it came to giving advice on having spontaneous romps, the online publication interviewed social psychologist Justin Lehmiller, a faculty affiliate of The Kinsey Institute. According to Lehmiller, people are having more casual sex now than ever before.

GWYNETH PALTROW TO START SELLING VITAMINS

“Compared to past generations, young adults today definitely have more casual sex,” he explained. “It’s interesting to note, though, that the overall amount of sex and the number of partners people report having hasn’t changed very much over the last few decades. The thing that has changed is the proportion of sex that’s casual in nature. In other words, while we aren’t having sex more frequently today, the circumstances under which we’re having sex is changing.”

Lehmiller also pointed out that when it comes to casual sex, men and women are still judged differently.

“There’s a double standard surrounding casual sex — women tend to be judged more harshly than men for having it, and when a man has it, he’s more likely to get a pat on the back than to be shamed,” he added. “This double standard leads men and women to think about casual sex very differently: Compared with men, women are more likely to regret past casual sex experiences. By contrast, men are more likely than women to regret lost opportunities for casual sex. In other words, when it comes to casual sex, women regret having had it, and men regret not having done it more.”

The 44-year-old actress and lifestyle guru shares two children with ex-husband, 40-year-old Coldplay singer Chris Martin: 12-year-old daughter Apple and 10-year-old son Moses.

Disney: Carrie Fisher death won't impact 'Last Jedi'

Mar 24, 2017 16

Disney CEO Bob Iger says the upcoming “Star Wars” sequel has not been changed due to the death of Carrie Fisher.

Fisher completed filming her role as Princess Leia in “The Last Jedi” before her death following a heart attack in December.

Iger said in an interview at a University of Southern California tech conference Thursday that Fisher “appears throughout” the film and her performance “remains as it was.”

Iger says Disney is discussing “what could be another decade and a half of Star Wars stories.”

Iger’s remark came on the same day Disney ended speculation that he would retire this year by extending his contract one year to 2019. He says he and Disney’s board thought they needed more time to work on a succession plan.

'Flip or Flop' star Christina El Moussa receives backlash for 'inappropriate' bikini snap with daughter

Mar 24, 2017 28

Christina El Moussa was hoping fans would welcome a new member to the family, but instead she received heat for her mother-daughter ensemble.

The “Flip or Flop” star posted a photo via Instagram on Thursday where she posed with her 6-year-old daughter Taylor in matching lavender bikinis. While the image was meant to show off their new French bulldog puppy Cashie, viewers instead called out on the “completely inappropriate” photo of a mother and daughter wearing revealing swimsuits.

“I am done with your show you are not making good mother choices,” one wrote.

“I agree. What mother does this???” another commented.

However by Friday, the reality TV star received an overwhelming amount of support on social media. Many felt the image was harmless and not worth the controversy.

“What stupid reactions so many have,” an Instagram user wrote. “There is nothing inappropriate here just a mom enjoying bringing up her kid & making that girl feel good about herself.”

“If they want to say this is inappropriate they need to check out other profilers,” one chimed in. “Go to the beach and see what most people wear. I see nothing wrong with this photo. It’s a great photo.”

“Anyone criticizing is just jealous,” said one user. “There’s nothing inappropriate about mom and daughter in swimsuits. Congrats on your new puppy.”

El Moussa has not responded since posting the photo.

Earlier this month, El Moussa opened up to ET about her split with ex-husband Tarek.

“Honestly, I’m doing really good. I’m in a really good place,” she said to the celebrity news site. “The kids are happy, they’re healthy. Tarek and I are in a good spot. We have a lot of things that we’re working on, cool things coming in the future, so we’re just looking forward.”

The personalities behind the popular HGTV show share two kids, including 1-year-old son Brayden. The duo are currently filming season seven of “Flip or Flop.”

“I agree. What mother does this???” another commented.

The photo was part of a larger shoot that El Moussa shot with her daughter for LSpace by Monica Wise, a swimwear line.

Some fans of the reality TV star defended the mother-of-two, speaking out against the backlash the pics recieved. 

“What stupid reactions so many have,” an Instagram user wrote. “There is nothing inappropriate here just a mom enjoying bringing up her kid & making that girl feel good about herself.”

ABC casts Chris Brown for 'black-ish' guest role amid more claims of domestic violence

Mar 24, 2017 19

ABC announced Chris Brown will make a guest appearance on “black-ish” one month after a judge ordered the rapper stay 100 yards away from ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

The model alleged in court filings Brown has repeatedly threatened to harm her and has punched her, pushed her down stairs and told friends he wanted to kill Tran. The “Kiss Kiss” singer has fervently repudiated her claims.

The 27-year-old will play a famous rapper in an episode that will air March 29 – the same day Tran and Brown are expected in court as the model wishes to have the restraining order extended.

“Ms. Tran is looking to expeditiously close this matter and quite frankly be able to move on with her life and put this matter behind her as quickly as possible,” Tran’s attorneys told E! News.

Amber Brockman, a spokesperson from ABC told Fox News are “not commenting at this time” about Brown’s appearance on the show.

The “black-ish” episode featuring Brown will be titled “Richard Youngsta” and will be centered on Anthony Anderson’s character, Dre, who is working on an advertising campaign with Brown’s character. Dre finds himself torn when Tracee Ellis Ross’ character, Bow and Jenifer Lewis’ character, Ruby, aren’t thrilled about Richard, since he plays on negative stereotypes.

When the news of Brown’s upcoming appearance on the show broke, people on Twitter seemed to more than bristle at the idea. The rapper infamously pleaded guilty to felony assault for an attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Chief communications officer for the National Domestic Hotline, Camika Crawford, told Fox News she hopes that Brown’s appearance on the ABC show will spark a conversation about domestic violence.

“Society tends to overlook incidents of domestic violence with celebrities and people they look up because it can be hard for you to think about that person in the light of them being controlling or abusive,” Crawford told us.

It seems like everywhere Brown goes, trouble follows.

Wednesday Brown was booed off stage in Reno, Nevada, after refusing to perform. Ticket-holders were refunded their money.

The Young Bucks find success outside of the WWE

Mar 24, 2017 19

Real life brothers and tag team partners The Young Bucks find fame and fortune in professional wrestling without ever stepping foot in the WWE. They’ve become well-known globally all while maintaining a close knit family life. They chatted with Fox News about their success.

Fox News: How would you guys define The Young Bucks?
Nick Jackson: Nowadays attention spans are a lot smaller so we try and have fun and do our partying on the mat.
Matt Jackson: People want instant gratification. They want to have fun immediately so were like an old-school tag match but on cocaine. That’s the best way I like to put it.
Nick Jackson: Defining the Young Bucks, that’s kind of hard. We’re different than most tag teams — we’re real life brothers.

Fox News: Has that been an advantage?
Matt Jackson: Absolute advantage of being brothers in the business.
Nick Jackson: Not many disadvantages to be honest.
Matt Jackson: I think there is chemistry naturally because we’re brothers. We’ve been wrestling our entire lives, whether it was in the backyard or the living room, now we can do it in the ring for 14-15 years now. So it’s kind of like this weird magic that only brothers have.

Fox News: Are your wives and kids understanding about the business you’re in and the travel away from home it brings?
Matt Jackson: My wife teases me and says [Nick is] like my road wife, and it’s true.
Nick Jackson: We’ve seen each other at the lows, and we’ve seen each other at the highs.
Matt Jackson: We’ve been together when we made $20 bucks a match and to the current day where we’re killing it. So it’s been a fun adventure.
Nick Jackson: My daughter always said “Why do you take pictures with people? I don’t understand.” You can’t really explain it to a 3-year-old.
Matt Jackson: My daughter is 5. I had a conversation with my daughter yesterday; it’s funny that you mention this. Because I was like, “Hey, is it weird that your daddy is a wrestler, honey? What do you think about your other friends?” She’s like, “Yeah it’s really weird.” “What if I was like a fireman would that be normal?” She’s like “Yeah.” “Are you embarrassed?” “A little bit.”
Nick Jackson: Anytime I’m home it’s time to party, so my wife says that it’s unfair because they think like I’m the cool parent…

Fox News: Ring of Honor has an awesome fan base, how does it make you feel as an athlete being able to compete in front of them?
Nick Jackson: This is probably one of my favorite crowds in the world. We travel the entire globe wrestling around great fans but this building (Manhattan Center) being around Ring of Honor fans it’s unreal.
Matt Jackson: Ring of Honor — you can make a living here. We’re proof of that.

Fox News: You guys have found a lot of success outside of the WWE, whether it’s wrestling in the U.S. or overseas for companies like New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). What advice would you give any upcoming wrestler who thinks they can only succeed in the WWE?
Nick Jackson: We’re happy WWE is signing a lot of guys because the advantage is to the guys like us. They’re signing people just to sign them, so we have the advantage of where we’re at because now we’re more valuable to them.

Fox News: Would you ever want to do this job without each other?
Both: No!
Nick Jackson: Like God forbid if I have to do it, I’ll try. I’ll try and adapt to it, but would I want to do it? No. (Laughing)
 

Malin Akerman talks activism, being a working mom

Mar 24, 2017 20

Malin Akerman is thinking a lot about the future.

The star told Fox News that “as a human being” she feels she has the need to be an environmental activist.

“I am very happy I have a platform to speak from, but even if I didn’t it would still be something I’m extremely passionate about. I have a child in the world… It’s not just here/now but our future and the future of our kids.

Akerman was a presenter at the EMA Summit in Beverly Hills on Thursday, supporting environmental innovation and activism. She said she believes people need to become educated about the issues facing the environment.

“It’s extremely important to talk about [the environment],” she said. “It always stems from education and knowledge and just getting the knowledge out there. I do believe people are good at heart and they just don’t have the knowledge.”

When she isn’t trying to solve the problems of the planet, the 38-year-old is currently on Showtime’s “Billions.”

“I love it,” she said of the show. “I’m just so excited that people have a great response to it. It’s really speaking to people and especially in this political climate it really is relevant. I am having a blast playing a headstrong powerful woman who is an equal to her husband and is… an entrepreneur. And I love working with the people I’m working with.”

Akerman, who is a mom to 3-year-old Sebastian, said she has found a good work-life balance.

“You make time,” she explained. “I got lucky working on ‘Billions’ because it’s an ensemble cast so I work three days a week so I have four days off so I have a lot of time to spend with my son. Now he is in school for half a day… I get that half day for myself. So [it’s] really kind of balanced itself out now. When you are in it you just make it work.”
