How The Chainsmokers Made It To Number One

To be number one on the Billboard Charts has to be every artist’s dream. Being at the top of the Billboard Charts describes how popular and common an artist’s or group’s music is amongst fans. To be number one is a dream come true that many just do not get to experience. But to get there requires a lot of hard work, dedication, sacrifice and talent. The Chainsmokers are a prime example of what a musical group must embody to reach number one.

Currently, The Chainsmokers are experiencing the joys of having a hit album. Their album titled Memoriess…Do Not Open rests at number on the Dance/EDM charts for Billboard. They have had incredible hits that has caused their album to surge to the top. From the looks of how things have been going for the past week, this group is going to see many more weeks of number one success.

The electronic music category is flourishing. For awhile now, the EDM scene has been dominated by a few big names like Calvin Harris. But that is all changing for this category. More artists and groups are becoming established amongst the EDM scene. It is good to see a category that use to be so small grow into a popular and beloved kind of music. But with the growth of more artists in this category, comes competition. But The Chainsmokers have nothing to fear. The Chainsmokers have experienced a successful year of releasing top hits and a number one album.

The Chainsmokers are new on the scene. But their passion and work for music has been in process for years. They have been perfecting their craft since their early days in New York City. It was here that the bandmates Drew Taggart and Alex Pall met. They were both djs trying to make a name for themselves. Eventually, the two linked up. Once they met, they were an instant musical match. They began to write and make music. It took some time but eventually Alex Pall and Drew Taggart were able to share The Chainsmokers to the entire world.

Gibson and His War on Mediocrity

War movies have always been a staple for fans of both violence and drama. The depictions of heroism and courage often portrayed in these movies help us as viewers to understand how war can be a terrible yet powerful tool to inform us on the decisions that are made and how it can influence the future. This is the case for the upcoming movie Destroyer, a WW2 film set during the Battle of Okinawa and directed by long time fan favorite Mel Gibson. Gibson is better known for his past films Hacksaw Ridge, Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, as well as other pieces of historical fiction.

While Gibson has been working on increasing his presence as an actor after a period of hiatus, he has decided to return to Hollywood in order to work on his directorial filming as well. As outlined on Screenrant (https://screenrant.com/mel-gibson-destroyer-director/), The upcoming film is said to star Gibson’s own long term girlfriend Rosalind Ross and will undoubtedly be another masterpiece to add to Mel Gibson’s already impressive directorial resume. If the film is going to be anything like what we saw with Hacksaw Ridge, a movie about a pacifist during the war in the Pacific, then we as moviegoers are in for a treat.

It is not yet known when Destroyer will be released. Cast information, as well as the more detailed forms of information, are still cloudy. What we know is that Mel Gibson has shocked us before with his work and will again.

Oprah Interviews Amy Schumer For OWN Network And Two Hit It Off As “Introverts”

Oprah’s popular podcasts “SuperSoul Conversations” for her OWN network never fail to interest fans, especially when her guest is the ultra-funny Amy Schumer.

The actress-comedian chatted with the talk show titan about her new movie “I Feel Pretty” and the book Schumer penned “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo.” Instantly, Oprah was a major fan of the funny woman, according to Friday’s report by the Huff Post.

Apparently, the famous celebrity pair share at least one personality characteristic that allows them to understand each other very well. The trait is called being an introvert. Now, it would appear that both super popular ladies are anything but wallflowers, but they talked about what it’s like to go to parties.

Oprah admitted that she often seeks the bathroom to hide out in and not have to deal with the public so much. Schumer knew right away that they were both introverts, and she explained that people like them give a lot of time to others, and there are moments when stepping away from the public is their way of handling their insecurities. The bathroom is also a favorite hideaway for Schumer when she feels overwhelmed and surrounded by people.

Check out a clip from Oprah’s OWN podcast here on YouTube. The pair discuss Schumer’s new marriage to a famous TV chef, and Oprah asks her how she knew that he was the one.

Amy Schumer admits that marriage has given her more peace and “a new calm.”

Rapper T.I. confronted Kanye West about Trump tweets & MAGA hat

Rappers T.I. and Kanye West had a face-to-face discussion about a variety of topics before creating their debate track called, “Ye vs. The People.” T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., was part of an interview on “The Breakfast Club” touching on the Kanye subject. During the interview, he spoke about having a visit with West at his home and confronting him on his recent tweets, as well as Kanye’s donning of a “Make America Great Again” cap.

The recent interview involving T.I. comes after West appeared in an interesting interview conducted by Charlemagne The God. During that talk, Kanye spoke about his mental health situation, his relationship with Jay-Z, and being inspired by Donald Trump’s presidential run. Now T.I. has gone on record to talk about his interaction with the hip-hop star just before they collaborated on a track debating President Trump.

T.I. said he was invited to West’s Los Angeles home after reaching out to him. He mentioned that upon his telling Kanye about how he disappointed a number of his fans with his tweets and “MAGA” hat, it seemed to bring about some regret on Kanye’s part. However, Kanye reiterated that he was being a “free thinker” and expressing his thoughts.

T.I. also went on to say he wanted to reach out to Kanye to see where his mind was at wondering if there was a “punch line” for all of the hip-hop star’s tweets. The rapper mentioned that Kanye is like the “Michael Jackson” of the “black delegation” and “we can’t afford to lose him.”

David Leitch Accepts the Hobbs & Shaw Challenge

David Leitch says he’s up for a challenge. The director’s big challenge comes in the form of crafting a spinoff from the Fast & Furious franchise. The difficulties won’t come from finding a concept or attracting stars. Leitch’s project, titled Hobbs & Shaw, teams up Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. The film won’t exactly do poorly at the box office considering Johnson’s incredible success in almost every film he appears. Teaming him with Statham further cements the connection to the Fast & Furious franchise. So, where does the challenge come in?

Hobbs & Shaw must deliver the age-old “same thing only different” concept in order for a spinoff to be truly successful. Fans do expect to see action and car chases similar to the ones in the Fast & Furious films. After all, the studio wishes to attract those fans to the theaters by giving them something they clearly enjoy. Even so, Leitch must distinguish Hobbs & Shaw from the Fast & Furious in order to avoid the appearances of being a new sequel as opposed to the launch of a new series.

The studio clearly feels that the Fast & Furious franchise has — pardon the pun — run out of gas. The previous film in the series earned massive money at the box office. Few non-superhero films seem capable of incredible returns in the current landscape. Rather than crank out weak new entries in the same series, creating a new spinoff seems the better approach. Leitch remains confident about creating that approach.

Lawrence Bender And The Making Of “Pulp Fiction”

Many people love the crime film “Pulp Fiction.” However, many people don’t know the story behind how the ground breaking movie was made. Nor, do they know the story about the producer behind Quentin Tarantino’s opus. That producer, Lawrence Bender, has a background story worthy of the big screen.

Bender was not a top movie producer when he helped Tarantino make “Pulp Fiction.” In fact, just a few years before making the film, Bender was a lowly producer of straight to video slash movies after years cutting his teeth as a production assistant. It was a chance meeting in 1990 that changed everything from the young producer.

At a friend’s barbecue, Lawrence Bender met another young man looking to make it big in Hollywood. That young man, Quentin Tarantino, was a semi-employed actor, film geek, budding screenwriter and aspiring Director. Quentin was known for talking about nothing but movies. So when Tarantino sprouted out an idea about a crime film to Bender, the young producer encouraged Tarantino to write up the script and send it him.

Two years later, that barbecue conversation turned into the film, “Reservoir Dogs.” The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it caused a sensation. More importantly, it gave Bender and Tarantino the calling card they needed to make a bigger budget Hollywood film. With their chance to hit it big, both Bender and Tarantino swung for the fences.

Their next film would be “Pulp Fiction,” widely regarded as one of the best crime films of all time. Released in 1994, the film would go on to gross over $100 million dollars in the United States alone. Starting Bruce Willis, , Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, “Pulp Fiction” would go on to win the grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival and garner the first of three Academy Award nominations for Bender.

Born in the Bronx, in 1962, Lawrence Bender has been working in Hollywood for almost four decades. In that time, Bender has produced such popular films as “Jackie Brown,” “Good Will Hunting,” and “Inglorious Basterds.” As he continues to shake up the world of Hollywood, Lawrence Bender’s legend should only continue to grow.

Aubrey O’Day and Don Trump Jr. Had Affair During Marriage To Vanessa

It looks like the impending divorce of Donald Trump Jr. and wife Vanessa is becoming a bit more rumor-ridden and complicated. The latest buzz centers around a former “Celebrity Apprentice” TV contestant (season five) and her alleged affair with the eldest Trump child.

According to a report in US magazine, Aubrey O’Day admits she hooked up with Trump Jr. in 2011 while the two were filming the reality show. Reports say the affair went into 2012; meanwhile, Vanessa Trump delivered the couple’s third child, Tristan. In early 2012, she became pregnant again with son Spencer.

O’Day claims that Donald Trump Jr. expressed being in love with her, was pursuing her and wanting to be with her and allegedly admitting that his marriage was on the way out after 12 years. Perez Hilton had kicked off the story on Monday; there’s been no comment from Trump Jr.

O’Day has a popular personal Instagram page. She boasts more than 888,000 followers and includes countless selfies at her social media site.

Rumors have it that Vanessa Trump had discovered emails sent between the pair and confronted her husband. She almost left Trump Jr. back in 2012. Donald Trump had told his son Don Jr. to knock off his behavior.

Vanessa Trump has been silent about filing for divorce, but the buzz continues. The NY Post claims that the mother of five is splitting from Trump Jr. because he was cheap and allegedly treated her like a second-class citizen.

Will and Jaden Smith Have Not Forgotten About Flint

Will and Jaden Smith are making an impact on more than just the big screen. The Hollywood father and son duo’s water company JUST recently committed to providing the schools in the city of Flint, Michigan, with clean drinking water every month until the schools have their own restored. Flint, Michigan, made national headlines in 2015 when it was discovered that to cut costs the city started using water from Flint instead of Detroit as was previously used. However, the water was not properly treated and thus highly contaminated as a test conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicated that the water contained as much as 397 lead parts per billion while the federal maximum limit allowed is 15 parts per billion. Nearly three years later, five out of the nine schools in the city still don’t have water that meets federal guidelines. JUST will provide help to these schools that are still very much in need.

JUST is a company that prides itself on having responsibly-sourced spring water and utilizing paper-based bottles that are from primarily renewable resources. The company was founded in 2015 by the Smiths prompted by Jaden’s concern for bottled water containers and other debris he would see while surfing back when he was 10 years old. Jaden is passionate about protecting the environment, and this Eco-friendly company is a result. Already having provided 9,200 bottles of JUST water, the Smith’s keep giving to make sure that Flint is not forgotten.
