    • KIM KARDASHIAN WEST IN TALKS WITH COTY NOW

      First Kylie, now Kim? Kim Kardashian West is reportedly in talks with Coty on a collaboration on "certain beauty products," the company revealed in a security filing.

      As many will recall, Coty purchased a 51% stake in Kylie Jenner's beauty line, which cost the company $600 million last year, according to reports. Last week, that deal came under scrutiny when Forbes claimed that Jenner faked her billionaire status. On Monday, Coty's chief said the allegations were a "mystery."

      Wall Street seemed to like the prospects of another Coty/Kardashian mash-up, sending stocks up 7% after news of the possible deal.

    • LEA MICHELE APOLOGIZES AFTER ALLEGATIONS OF RACIST MICROAGGRESSIONS

      Lea Michele apologized after former Glee castmates accused her of racist behavior, and she lost a lucrative brand sponsorship.

      Michele originally spoke out in support of Black Lives Matters, prompting a significant backlash.

      On Wednesday, the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram: "I listened to these criticisms and I am learning and while I am very sorry, I will be better in the future from this experience."

      Samantha Ware was first to speak out, tweeting: "REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?!" Ware wrote. "CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET. I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD "(expletive) IN MY WIG!" AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD."

      Amber Riley, Alex Newell, Yvette Nicole Brown and others supported Ware's allegations.

      Meal delivery service Hello Fresh quickly nixed their partnership with Michele following the uproar.

      Michele added to her statement: "The responses I received to what I posted have made me also focus specifically on how my own behavior towards fellow cast members was perceived by them," denying recalling the incidents, and saying that "never judged others by their background or color of their skin."

      Still: "That's not really the point. What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people. Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused We all can grow and change and I have definitely used these past several months to reflect my own shortcomings."

      She and Zandy Reich are expecting their first child, and she said that she would work to "better myself and take responsibility for my actions" to be a better role model for her baby."

    • CARA DELEVINGNE TALKS PANSEXUALITY AFTER ASHLEY BENSON SPLIT

      Cara Delevingne does not want to be pigeon-holed. The 27-year-old model and actress recently split with longtime love Ashley Benson, and she tells Variety that she essentially identifies as "pansexual," meaning she's attracted to any gender.

      Delevingne says: "However one defines themselves, whether it's ‘they' or ‘he' or ‘she,' I fall in love with the person — and that's that. I'm attracted to the person."

      The Carnival Row star says she never felt compelled to come out, and with 45 million followers on Instagram, she is one of Hollywood's most visible queer stars.

      Not that she hasn't gotten blowback. She said of Harvey Weinstein, who called her one night many years ago, apropos of nothing: "Harvey was one of the people that told me I couldn't be with a woman and also be an actress. I had to have a beard."

      Delevingne added: "To me, the idea of having a beard was — I'd heard it happen before — I just felt so disheartened by it. Do you have a conversation with a dude, and they're like, ‘I'm going to pretend to be with you but not really love you'? I kind of think when I was pushed more that way, I realized how much more I needed to go the other way."

      This year, in honor of Pride, she's launching a clothing line with Puma, with some of the proceeds benefiting LGBTQ foundations. She also helped secure a partnership between Puma and The Trevor Project, a nonprofit dedicated to preventing suicide among queer people.

      Benson has come a long way herself. She recalls opening up to her father about the loss of her first relationship with another woman at 18.

      She recalled: "I've never been very good at talking about my emotions with my father. And I remember one day, I was so upset because I was heartbroken. And my dad was like, ‘You never talk to me.' And I screamed at him, ‘I'm f—ing heartbroken.' I ran downstairs. I remember he gave me a hug, and I started crying so much. I said, ‘She broke my heart.' I thought at the moment, he might kick me out. I was that scared; I was honestly terrified. And he was like, ‘She isn't worth the energy. You deserve to be loved.' He was so sweet, I could cry about it right now."

    • LILLY WACHOWSKI SAYS 'RAGE' INSPIRED 'MATRIX' FRANCHISE

      Lilly Wachowski says that the Matrix franchise, starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Laurence Fishburne, was "born out of a lot of anger and a lot of rage," the co-writer and co-director told The Hollywood Reporter. "And it's rage at capitalism and corporatized structure and forms of oppression.

      Wachowski, who was previously known as Andy before transitioning, blamed the "bubbling, seething rage within me was about my own oppression, that I (was forcing) myself to remain in the closet."

      The 52-year-old is encouraged by the impact trilogy has had: "Now that I'm out and a living example of someone who can grow old being a trans woman, trans people can see those films through the lens of my transness and their transness. They're able to go, ‘Oh my God, these films were such an important part of my coming out and my own journey.' I'm extraordinarily grateful that I could offer that to people."

      She came out as transgender in 2016. Her sibling Lana, formerly known as Larry, came out in 2008.

    • VANESSA MORGAN BLASTS ONE-DIMENSIONAL ROLES FOR BLACK CHARACTERS ON 'RIVERDALE'

      Riverdale's Vanessa Morgan is opening up about racial inequality on-set and onscreen. She tweeted: "Tired of how black people are portrayed in Media, tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry scary people. Tired of us also being used as sidekick non dimensional characters to our white leads. Or only used in the ads for diversity but not actually in the show. It starts with the media. I'm not being quiet anymore."

      Morgan continued, saying she's paid less and is playing a "token biracial bisexual."

      But she made it clear that she doesn't blame her castmates. In response to a supportive tweet from co-star Lili Reinhart, she wrote: "My role on Riverdale has nothing to do with my fellow castmates/friends. They don't write the show. So no need to attack them, they don't call the shots & I know they have my back."

      Actress Asha Bromfield weighed in on her experience as a member of the Pussycats: "Don't even get me started with how Riverdale treated the Pussycats. We had so much more to contribute than standing in the background and adding sass to a storyline. I stand with you."

She shared on Instagram: "I've been told a couple times that he won't make it. I've been told to say goodbye. I've been told it would take a miracle. Well, I have faith. Faith that is small as a mustard seed sometimes, but that is all you need sometimes." Kloots added, "He's still here and despite his odds gets slightly, slightly better every day. Where there is faith, there is hope. Where there is hope, there can be a miracle! Like my dad has said since day one, every day he's still with us is a miracle. I believe God is with us, with the doctors and with Nick."

      AMC DECLARES MASSIVE Q1 LOSSES: AMC Entertainment said it expects to report ever-high losses of between $2.1 billion and $2.4 billion for the first quarter ending in March. "We believe, but cannot guarantee, that the exhibition industry will ultimately rebound and benefit from pent-up social demand for out-of-home entertainment, as government restrictions are lifted and home sheltering subsides. However, the ultimate significance of the pandemic, including the extent of the adverse impact on our financial and operational results, will be dictated by the currently unknowable duration and the effect on the overall economy and of responsive governmental regulations, including shelter-in-place orders of the pandemic and mandated suspension of operations," the company said in an SEC filing announcing its preliminary earnings and complicated outlook, Deadline reports.
