Amandla Stenberg gets called out by film critic after actress criticizes her | Daily Mail Online

New York Times film critic Lena Wilson has called out actress Amandla Stenberg on social media.

Lena revealed she received a direct message on her Instagram from Amandla about the review she did for the film Bodies Bodies Bodies.

Amandla, who came out as gay in 2018, had taken offense for Lena’s copy that referred to cleavage, however the actress did call her NYT review ‘great.’

Lena’s review referring to the cleavage was one sentence, which read: ‘The only thing that really sets Bodies Bodies apart is its place in the A24 hype machine, where it doubles as a 95-minute advertisement for cleavage and Charli XCX’s latest single.’

Speaking out: New York Times film critic Lena Wilson has called out actress Amandla Stenberg on Twitter. Lena revealed she received a direct message on her Instagram from Amandla about the review she did for the film Bodies, Bodies Bodies Bodies

In 2018, Amandla said to Wonderland Magazine: ‘I was so overcome with this profound sense of relief when I realized that I’m gay. Not bi, not pan[sexual] but gay – with a romantic love for women. All of these things that felt so internally contrary to my truest self were rectified as I unraveled a long web of denial and self-deprivation.’

Lena, who is a lesbian, also tweeted: ‘Always weird when the homophobia is coming from inside the house but this is something,’ referring to the fact that they are both part of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Lena pointed out that Amandla appeared to only zero in on her and not any other film critic.

Lena shared the DM from Amandla on her Twitter and TikTok.

In the DM, Amandla wrote: ‘Ur review was great, maybe if you had gotten ur eyes off my t**s you could’ve watched the movie!’

What was said: Lena shared the DM from Amandla on her Twitter and TikTok

Lena responded back to Amandla: ‘hey, Amandla! generally a big fan of your work, but this sure is something. really wishing you well in your career and life. have a nice night.’

The film critic then blocked the star on Instagram, as seen in the DM screenshot. 

Lena also tweeted: ‘Do you think she Instagram DM’d Alison Willmore, Justin Chang and Anthony Lane like this or,’ adding the DM screenshot.

She also tweeted: ‘Always weird when the homophobia is coming from inside the house but this is something.’

From Twitter: She also tweeted about the message as well, noting that she only seemed to received a message about her review

Lena wrote another tweet: ‘me: (spends one line of a 500-word review facetiously commenting on how A24 objectifies young women to sell content). Random men on twitter dot com and also, apparently, Amandla Stenberg: Local d**e Cannot Stop Talking About Boobies.’

A24 is the distributor of the film. 

She also took to TikTok and shared a video: ‘I haven’t been on here in a while but I was just checking my Instagram DMs because a really lovely kind person informed me that Jennifer’s Body is playing in 35mm at the Roxy this weekend. If you’re in New York you have to absolutely go to that. There are a disgusting amount of tickets left.’

Words: She also took to TikTok and shared a vide

‘I looked at my DM request and found this which I’m going to let speak for itself for a little bit. For context I have reviewed Bodies Bodies Bodies for the New York Times and I really didn’t like and I said so. Ironically I praised the acting though.’

‘I don’t want anything else to come from this, I’m devastated to have received this message in the first place. I was a genuine huge fan of hers but I’m posting it because I don’t want this person who has more social power than me to think that it’s f****n okay to do something like this. And that’s all.’

 She captioned the TikTok: ‘Unfathomably weird to get “I don’t want you in the locker room while I’m changing” bullying from a whole other lesbian.’

Bodies Bodies Bodies is a comedy horror, directed by Halina Reijn.

Amandla stars alongside Maria Bakalova, Pete Davidson, Chase Sui Wonders, Lee Pace and Myha’la Herrold in the project.

Blake Shelton says his professional career has taken ‘a backseat’ to his marriage with Gwen Stefani | Daily Mail Online

Blake Shelton opened up about his relationship with Gwen Stefani during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that was released on Friday.

During the sit-down, the 46-year-old hitmaker opened up about prioritizing his marriage with the 52-year-old singer over his other professional commitments.

The performer and his now-wife tied the knot last year after previously meeting while working on the hit singing competition series The Voice.

Devoted husband: Blake Shelton opened up about his relationship with Gwen Stefani during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that was released on Friday; they are seen in June

Shelton began the interview by stating that he had placed his family life before his other professional efforts.  

He stated: ‘I love all the cool things I get to do…but those things all take a backseat now to Gwen and the kids and it’s just a new phase of my life.’

The songwriter also remarked that he was at a place in his life where he had the freedom to record when he wanted to.

‘I’m having fun putting out songs when I feel like it and luckily the record label allows me to do that,’ he said. 

Family man: Shelton began the interview by stating that he had placed his family life before his other professional efforts; he is seen with Stefani in June

Shelton noted that his label was willing to work with him on an irregular schedule. 

‘I just go, “Hey, I want to do this. Will you guys help me?” and they’ll jump on board and we’ve had some big records that way. Hopefully this will be another one,’ he said.

The performer then stated that he would never have expected to end up with Stefani during the early stages of his career.

‘I would have probably said, “Are you talking about that girl that holds up the orange in her video?” I never understood until now that she’s from Orange County,’ he said.

Unexpected: The performer then stated that he would never have expected to end up with Stefani during the early stages of his career

He did make a point of noting that he had experienced much more professional success after becoming a regular on television. 

‘I’ve pulled an audience from TV that maybe didn’t even know who I was, probably didn’t know who I was when I started on The Voice and it’s kind of been the thing that took me to a different level in my career and I love that,’ he said.

Shelton and Stefani initially met while working on The Voice in 2014.

The singer was previously married to Kaynette Gern from 2003 until 2006, and to Miranda Lambert from 2011 until 2015.

The now-couple announced that they had separated from their spouses and began dating in November of 2015.

Shelton and Stefani went on to become engaged in 2020, and they tied the knot during a wedding ceremony that was held at the former’s ranch in Oklahoma in July of last year.

Kim Kardashian’s ex Pete Davidson ‘will NOT be featured very much in The Kardashians season two’ | Daily Mail Online

The Kardashians season two is set to begin streaming September 22 on Hulu, but fans hoping to grab a bit more insight into the relationship between Kim Kardashian, 41, and former beau Pete Davidson, 28 may be disappointed. 

A source told The New York Post’s Page Six column ‘He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete.’

The Bodies Bodies Bodies actor appears briefly in the season two trailer, but the insider says otherwise he is not expected to be seen onscreen much in the show due to his being a private person. 

Private person: Pete Davidson, 28,  will have a low profile in season two of The Kardashians, according to an insider who explained the former SNL star is a ‘private person’; seen in May

The teaser showed the Skims founder interrupting a conversation between her then boyfriend and sister Khloe, 38, asking him, ‘Babe, do you want to shower with me really quick?’

She also gushed about their romance in the trailer, saying, ‘Life is good, I have a new boyfriend. I’m just having a really good time.’

Kim and Pete had met briefly before she hosted Saturday Night Live in October 2021.

Trailer: Although Kim gushes in the trailer that ‘Life is good, I have a new boyfriend. I’m just having a really good time,’ a source told Page Six that  He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete’

They began dating after sharing an on-stage kiss during a Princess Jasmine and Aladdin skit, when the SKKN founder said she felt ‘a little zing.’ 

The couple were seeing each other during the taping of season one of The Kardashians, but he was heard on phone calls and not seen. 

The source has also tried to clear up any rumors that began after the couple broke up earlier this month, contending the parting of ways was amicable and a ‘mutual decision.’

Shower: Following their appearance as a couple at The Met Gala, Kim is seen in the trailer asking her beau,’ ‘Babe, do you want to shower with me really quick?’; seen in May

Kim is also said to be ‘very supportive’ of The Freak Brothers star’s decision to attend therapy following the online bullying he received from her ex, Kanye West, 45. 

Pete has previously revealed he suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, which It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The source said, ”Kanye was very detrimental. He was posting negative things – now add thousands and thousands of comments. Someone has to work with you to deal with something like that.’  

Meanwhile, Kim is said to be ‘very supportive’ of Pete’s decision to attend therapy.

Following their breakup, it emerged that the ‘Saturday Night Live’ star had turned to therapy after being repeatedly mocked by Kanye West – Kim’s ex-husband – on social media.

Supportive: The Skims founder is said to be supportive of her former flame getting therapy to deal with the online bullying Pete received from her ex-husband, Kanye West, 45 during their relationship

The rapper continued his persecution after learning of the breakup by posting a mock New York Times story on Instagram which featured the headline, ‘Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28’.

The Yeezy artist eventually removed the controversial post which left Kim fuming.  ‘Kim is upset. Not only is she sad from the breakup, but this on top of it has tested her mentally.’

The TV star, who shares children North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three, with Kanye, has remained on good terms with Pete, but the insider explained that the reality stary is ‘not okay with this type of behavior and won’t tolerate her loved ones being treated like this.’

Debut: The Kardashians season two will debut on Hulu September 22

Grease star Olivia Newton-John dies aged 73 | Evening Standard

ame Olivia Newton-John has died at the age of 73, her husband has confirmed.

The British-born singer died “peacefully” at her ranch in Southern California on Monday morning, surrounded by family and friends.

Newton-John is best known for her starring role as Sandy in the 1978 film Grease, in which she starred opposite John Travolta.

In a statement posted on social media, Newton-John’s widower John Easterling said: “Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time.

“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.

“Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.”

She is survived by her husband as well as her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, who paid tribute to her mother with a selection of images on Instagram.

The post included pictures of Ms Lattanzi as a baby as well as more showing the pair appearing to give interviews together.

Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer three times.

But instead of focusing on her third prognosis, she raised funds for research into the effects of cannabis as a cancer treatment.

The star also sold some of her film memorabilia in order to raise money for research, including the iconic “bad Sandy” outfit from Grease.

Newton-John first overcame cancer in 1992 and was then in remission until 2013, when she was again diagnosed with the disease.

She revealed she had been diagnosed with cancer for the third time in three decades in September 2018.

At the time, she told Australian news programme Sunday Night that doctors had found a tumour in her lower back in 2017.

The singer said she was treating the illness “naturally” and was using cannabis oil made from marijuana her husband grows in California to alleviate the pain.

She received a damehood for her services to charity, cancer research and entertainment in 2020.

She was born in Cambridge, England, but her family moved to Melbourne in Australia when she was six years old.

While having early success as a singer, her career soared after she starred in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Grease in 1978.

Grease became the biggest box-office hit of 1978, and the soundtrack created three ‘Top 5’ singles for Newton-John, including ‘You’re the One That I Want’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, and ‘Summer Nights’.

Tributes are flowing for the iconic actress and singer.

Her co-star John Travolta said: “My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!”

Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin recalled starring alongside Dame Olivia Newton-John in the 1996 film It’s My Party, one of the first films to address the topic of Aids patients dying with dignity.

She said: “I am SO saddened at the news of the passing of Olivia Newton John. I remember being so star struck when I met her at my first Hollywood gathering for Paramount. She was the sweetest and brightest light and I loved getting to know her on It’s My Party. RIP dear, sweet Olivia.”

Star Trek actor George Takei has paid tribute to Dame Olivia Newton-John calling her a “great, iconic artist”.

Aside from her hit role in the film, Newton-John is also a multi-platinum selling artist, with two singles and two albums having earned the certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

She also represented the UK in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Long Live Love. She finished fourth in the competition, held in Brighton, losing out to Abba, with their hit song Waterloo.
