The 49-year-old singer recently did an interview where she explained why she made this choice, saying:
“We’re all making it up as it goes, to be honest. I would like to say there’s some master plan going on [with the album release], but there isn’t. But a few months ago I emailed my manager and said, “Guess what? This streaming thing just does not feel right. I don’t know why, but it just seems insane.”"
Why is it insane? “To work on something for two or three years and then just, Oh, here it is for free. It’s not about the money; it’s about respect, you know? Respect for the craft and the amount of work you put into it. But maybe Netflix is a good model. You go first to the cinema and after a while it will come on Netflix. Maybe that’s the way to go with streaming. It’s first physical and then maybe you can stream it later.”
So, at least there’s a chance Bjork will come around, right?!
The decision to not prosecute allegedly stems from a couple of reasons, including the fact that Jenner was not speeding, texting, or under the influence. Essentially, cops think Bruce should have paid more attention but that his negligence doesn’t warrant prosecution.
It’s important to note, however, that there are conflicting reports regarding the reality star’s speed. While law enforcement says Brusier was traveling at 38 MPH when he hit the brakes, diagnostics in the 65-year-old’s SUV reveal the actual speed may have been between 46-47 MPH.
If you’re hoping to own your very own piece of Hollywood history, you better have some DEEP pockets!!
Monday night at the ‘TCM Presents: There’s No Place Like Hollywood’ Auction at Bonhams in Manhattan, cinephiles got a chance to bid on some iconic pieces of movie memorabilia, and it was NOT cheap!
One of the most popular items of the night was one of the two original pianos used in Rick’s Café in the iconic 1942 film, Casablanca, and it sold for a jaw-dropping .9 million!
The piano is probably best known from Ingrid Bergman‘s infamous line, “Play it, Sam.” However, actor Dooley Wilson didn’t even know how to play piano, and had to pretend he was playing throughout the film!
That’s an awful lot of money for a piano that was never actually played on camera!!
Surprisingly, that wasn’t even the most expensive item of the night, as the original Cowardly Lion costume worn by Bert Lahr in The Wizard of Oz sold for more than million!
Of course, there were other items for sale for movie lovers with a tighter budget, like a Springtime for Hitler poster from The Producers, which sold for ,750! And don’t forget the idol Indiana Jones stole at the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark, which raked in ,250!
While .9 million is a LOT to pay for a piano, we’re guessing it will be well worth it when this guy gets to play As Time Goes By for his guests at his next party! LOLz!
A few months back, Kristian Nairn, GoT‘s Hodor, totally revealed that Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Bran Stark would not be in the upcoming season.
Ugh, but we love that little warg!
Now, executive producer David Benioff has come forward to explain the reason for this Stark’s absence:
“Ideally that wouldn’t have gotten out and it’s unfortunate it did. The fact is, even though we’re making changes to the books and adapting as necessary, we’re trying to keep the various storylines the same as the books and trying to keep them roughly [chronologically] parallel. And last year we caught up to the end of Bran’s storyline [in George R.R. Martin's most recent A Song of Ice and Fire novel, A Dance with Dragons]. So if we pushed him forward this season, then he’s way ahead of where the other characters are…It made sense to stop where we did. He’s now entering a training period which is going to take quite some time, much of which isn’t particularly cinematic. So rather than being stuck in a cave for a year, we figured it would be interesting to leave him out for a little bit, so when you see him again…”
Ooh, what a way to trail off and leave us guessing!
So go ahead, Bran! Train with the Three-Eyed Raven! We guess we’ll just to have imagine your training montage.
