I wanted to take the time to say Thank you Chris Carter. Not just to you, but to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as well. Thank you FOX network for giving an old Phile like me, an amazing walk down memory lane. Imagine my surprise all those months ago when I woke up on my day off futzed around the house turned on my laptop logged into my facebook account and in my notifications it said one of my sons had tagged me in a photo. Now this child lives in another state from me due to work, so I was extremely curious as to what he was tagging me in. I squealed just like a kindergartner on Christmas morning when it was picture and announcement of the return of The X-Files. I giggled like a child with a new puppy when my phone rang and the theme song played as I read the article. Yes, I use...

Dear Kanye West, Stop slut-shaming Amber Rose. I’m tired of it. Your fans are tired of it. Women in hip hop are tired of it. I get that you’re mad at Wiz Khalifa — so you came at him with your best insult. You were soooo excited to announce that you named your forthcoming album Waves, but instead of tweeting you high-fives, Wiz had the audacity to claim you stole the idea from New York cult rap legend Max B. Other hip hop heads agreed with him and it became this whole trending topic. Wiz then has the audacity to tweet the letters “KK.” KK as in Kim Kardashian? Nope. Never. Not happening. How dare Wiz type these holy letters with his filthy hands! Never mind that he’s a stoner and actually is referring to the “Khalifa Kush” strain of weed. Tweet first, think later. You go IN....

Dear Cheryl Boone Isaacs, I understand your need to respond to the criticism the Academy has recently received about the lack of diversity among the Oscar nominees. However, I am baffled at your and the board’s choice of a response. I worked in the industry for over 20 years, most of that time as a film studio executive. Because of that, I am currently a full voting member of the Academy. Under the new rules it appears as though that right will be denied me in order to make the Academy and therefore the Oscar nominees "more diverse." Are you saying I am racist or have racist tendencies and need to be excluded from voting? Are you saying if I worked another 10 years I would vote differently? Are you saying that I have not made my voting choices on quality but rather on the color...

Ok you guys. I hate having to explain myself, I don't think its necessary most of the time. Especially on the internet. I am going to here because there are too many people that are saying things about me that aren't true. I fully support Ezra as Barry allen and the Flash on the feature side of DC. I've never met the guy, but I think he is a fantastic and interesting actor. would I have liked to play Barry Allen in a film? Sure. I love this character and it has changed my life and making movies and tv is something I hope to be fortunate enough to do for the rest of my life. I "liked" some tweets of fans who expressed their support of me and said they would have enjoyed seeing me in the movie. Nothing of anyone "bashing" Ezra. I don't condone that type of behaviour (especially...

Ever since I said THIS on Fox yesterday, Black Entertainment Television has been throwing shade. They reminded me — and the rest of America — that I appeared on a show called The Game, which appeared on BET. “Soooooo @realstaceyldash, can we get our check back… or nah?” the Instagram caption read. “#Remember #YouWereOnTheGame #AndWeDontMeanTheRapper.” Well, here’s the thing. Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show. Why? It’s on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point. I’m thankful for all of the acting jobs I’ve had. But I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society. That might be hard for the people...

A Letter to a Entertainment Industry, I am a former President of a Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and proffer on several committees, nonetheless we am no longer on a Board of Governors and have no ruling powers. After operative for some-more than 50 years in a party business, we have an abiding passion for a work we do. This personal minute arises out of that passion. Lately we – along with many others – have been meditative prolonged and tough about a default of farrago within a industry. we contend “our industry” since we don’t trust this is usually an Academy problem rather it’s an industry-wide problem and adult until now we have not finished a really good job. And while we also don’t trust this problem can be solved quickly, we know that it can and should be solved...

A week has passed since David Bowie's death, and his son Duncan Jones, who was among the first to confirm the news last Monday, has returned to Twitter. Jones shared a link to an open letter written in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) by a palliative care doctor, which shed light on the musician's preparation for death and thanked him for his contribution to music. It has been reported, although not officially confirmed, that Bowie's "courageous 18-month battle" was with liver cancer. Mark Taubert, a Palliative Care Consultant at Velindre NHS Trust, Cardiff, wrote that "[Bowie's] story became a way for us to communicate very openly about death, something many doctors and nurses struggle to introduce as a topic of conversation", and he says he discussed a number of difficult...

Dear “Hot Dudes” Instagrams, It’s me, journalist and gay-person Joseph Lamour. For 32 years, I, like so many others, have appreciated the sight of a piercing set of blue eyes, a chiseled jaw and a sculpted set of abs on a hot AF brunette fella. How could I not, when that image is presented to me in all forms of media, in advertising and right in front of me when I go to the beach? I, connoisseur of fine male specimens, have looked thoroughly at popular Instagram accounts “Hot Dudes With Dogs,” “Hot Dudes In Beds” and most recently, “Hot Dudes With Kittens” and noticed a pattern. Can you guess that pattern? Here, look at this screenshot of the three and see if you can see it. Ah yes, gorgeous men as far as the eye can see. Much appreciated. However, though I’m a lover of a six (or...

Dear The Kardashian Family, You might seem like peculiar idols for me to admire. On the face of it, our lives couldn’t be more different: mine, as a Conservative MP, living in England, yours steeped in unprecedented glamour and money, the quintessential American dream. You’re not particularly politically engaged, you haven’t produced ground-breaking science, literature or even music. Yet, for me, there’s one thing you represent that can’t be easily gained or replicated, something invaluable which we both possess: tenacity. Growing up, in Anfield, Liverpool, working hard was the foremost lesson I learned. My father, a bus driver, was often ill and my mother desperately tried to make ends meet as she trained to be a teacher. We hid from the rent man, skipped meals frequently. I...
