Along with everything else going on in the world right now, we’ve also got the curious case of that hunk of metal that appeared in the Utah desert last week, which then disappeared before a similar-but-not-identical monolith showed up in Romania. Tucker Carlson, speaking as a UFO enthusiast, felt the need to address this topic on his show Monday night.“When we first started the show four years ago, we scoffed at the idea of UFOs being real. It seemed kind of insane,” Said Tucker, who regularly spreads outlandish conspiracy theories.“And then we saw declassified video footage of objects that seemed to defy the laws of physics. We showed it to you and our minds became a little more open.”Also Read: Tucker Carlson Wonders When the Government Will Finally Tell Us About the Aliens (Video)Tucker then said his demonstrative interest in UFOs — a topic he broaches often enough that Fox News made a goofy little CGI flying saucer video for his show — fueled his interest in the monolith.“And that’s why on November 18th, we took notice when helicopter pilots counting sheep over a remote part of the desert in southeastern Utah saw something new and weird: an unidentified stationary object,” Tucker said, delivering a rare attempt at humor.“It was a monolith of sorts, standing up, apparently made out of stainless steel. They got outside, took pictures in front of it, and then they left. And a few other people trekked out to the monolith and did the same.Also Read: Tucker Carlson: It's 'Outrageous' the Government Is Still Hiding Evidence of UFOs (Video)“Then on Friday night the monolith, no one knows where it came from, suddenly disappeared. Around the same time a nearly identical structure apparently surfaced in Romania. What does all of this mean? No idea. But we’ll be the first to tell you if we find out because who knows?”Tucker did not make any sort of reference to “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which is the source material that everyone is drawing on when they use the word “monolith” to describe this weird object. In the Arthur C. Clarke novels and the Stanley Kubrick film, these objects — placed by an unknown group of space aliens in order to uplift intelligent species they encounter around the universe — spark major advancements in human history. For example, when a group of apes encounter one of them at the beginning of the film, it sparks by some means their eventual evolution into humans.We should note that the “2001” monoliths are black and non-reflective, unlike the one that popped up in Utah.Also Read: Tucker Carlson Cites His UFO Obsession as Proof He's 'Open Minded' (Video)You can watch the relevant portion of Monday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News in the video embedded up at the top of this article.Read original story Tucker Carlson Thinks Aliens Might Be Responsible for That Weird Utah Monolith (Video) At TheWrap

J.D. Heyman has been terminated as the editor in chief of Entertainment Weekly “effective immediately,” a spokesperson for parent company Meredith told TheWrap on Monday.No reason was given for the ouster of the veteran editor, formerly at People magazine and the top editor at EW since June 2019.“JD Heyman and Entertainment Weekly (EW), produced by Meredith Corporation, have parted ways, effective immediately,” the spokesperson said. “Meredith thanks JD for his contributions to the EW and People brands over his many years of service. A national search is being conducted to fill the role.”Until that time, Meredith said Alex Brez, EW’s director of editorial operations for entertainment and style and Tim Leong, EW’s deputy editor and creative director, will oversee editorial operations for the magazine.Heyman, the former deputy editor at People magazine, was appointed the editor in chief of EW last year as the publication scaled back to a monthly print product and shifted its focus to digital offerings.Meredith took over EW as part of its $2.8 billion purchase of Time Inc., which started the publication in 1990.Heyman did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.Read original story Entertainment Weekly’s JD Heyman Is Out as Editor in Chief ‘Effective Immediately’ At TheWrap
“Happiest Season” recently premiered on Hulu, marking the first time a major holiday movie has predominantly billed itself as an LGBT-centric rom-com. It was a film that was long overdue in 2020 and one that received generally positive reviews, though not everyone was a fan. Which is understandable. After all, not every movie is going to be for everyone.But Ben Shapiro definitely was not a fan.On the November 30th episode of the “Ben Shapiro Show,” Shapiro spent some time — OK, a lot of time — talking about his feelings on the film which, unsurprisingly, he did not enjoy. He admitted he did not even watch it, so basically we can infer that he didn’t enjoy it because of the lesbian rom-com angle.Also Read: 'Happiest Season' Film Review: Kristen Stewart Makes Merry in LGBT Christmas FarceIn his comments, he first pointed out how holiday fare is usually innocent and tame and “not woke,” which is not the case when it comes to “Happiest Season.” He then implied that there was some sort of conspiracy where Hulu has gone so far “that they’ve decided, the entertainment industry, that they have to go to places like Hallmark and then browbeat them into making pieces on lesbian and gay couples even though the main constituency for Hallmark is largely religious families with small children.”If Shapiro really wants to make an argument about “Happiest Season,” he should probably get his facts right. The movie wasn’t pitched by Hulu; it was produced by Sony and set to debut in theaters, but ended up making its premiere on Hulu because of the pandemic. He also claimed reviews have been 100% positive which, again, isn’t exactly true. While the film has a score of 83% on Rotten Tomatoes, it definitely had its share of lukewarm reviews, both from critics and on social media. While he does at least know that Harper’s (Mackenzie Davis) parents are both pretty conservative, he doesn’t seem to know that religion isn’t denounced anywhere in the film. In fact, all things considered, it presents a pretty even and fair picture of an LGBTQ+ relationship.Also Read: Why Ben Shapiro's The Daily Wire and Other Right-Wing Media Dominate FacebookNeedless to say, Shapiro’s comments have hit a lot of nerves. Writer Charlotte Clymer asked “Why can’t openly-LGBTQ people be religious? Why, in your view, are our families discounted from religious families?”See more reactions below.Ben Shapiro is perhaps the most boring person to ever hold a platform on the internet. Grow up you absolute baby. https://t.co/VUVvC7HU69— Jake Hanrahan (@Jake_Hanrahan) November 30, 2020It's a free country, they can make one of their 40 holiday movies about an LGBT couple.

So I wonder what it is could POSSIBLY be a lesbian rom-com that it makes "a movie [he and his audience] despise." https://t.co/VDS4R4DvGc— Dana Schwartz (@DanaSchwartzzz) November 30, 2020Now @benshapiro is upset that Lesbians celebrate Christmas tooNothing showcases the love of Jesus Christ more than being angry that every human is worthy of it pic.twitter.com/gvrmH5elb9— Matt Jones (@MattJonesRadio) December 1, 2020Bigot Ben Shapiro, who hasn't seen it, warns Christians away from the LGBTQ romcom The Happiest Season, claiming "it slaps your sensibilities in the face."

President-elect Joe Biden and his transition team were cheered after the announcement of their White House communications team, not only because it is all-female, but because it also features two lesbian women of color.Former Biden campaign adviser Karine Jean-Pierre will serve as principal deputy press secretary and Pili Tobar, a veteran of the immigration reform group America’s Voice, will be deputy White House communications director. Their appointments were announced Sunday in a release from the transition team, which vowed a “commitment to building an administration that looks like America.”Barbara Simon, head of news and campaigns at LGBTQ+ advocacy organization GLAAD, heralded the choices in a statement to TheWrap.“Including queer women of color in the history-making, all-female communications team shows a commitment to a White House where all are welcome at the table,” she said. “We expect them to continue fighting for more voices to be heard, especially women, immigrants and queer people of color who’ve too often been left out of conversations and decisions about our lives. We look forward to seeing them lead the way.”Among the other staffers announced Sunday were:Jen Psaki as the new White House press secretary; deputy Biden campaign manager Kate Bedingfield as the new communications director; Ashley Etienne, a former Biden campaign adviser who’s worked for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will serve as communications director for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris; senior campaign adviser Symone Sanders will be Harris’ chief spokeswoman; and former federal prosecutor Elizabeth Alexander will become first lady Jill Biden’s communications director.Read original story Biden Team Cheered for LGBTQ Representation on All-Female Communications Team At TheWrap
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s phone starting ringing while he was certifying the state’s presidential election results on Monday morning, and his very unique ringtone appears to have identified the caller as Donald Trump.Back in July, Ducey told reporters that he set his ringtone for calls from the White House to “Hail to the Chief” by composer James Sanderson so that he never misses a call from Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.Now take a wild guess as to which song was playing before Ducey quickly silenced it in the middle of certifying Joe Biden’s victory on Monday.Also Read: National Review Slams Trump's 'Disgraceful' and 'Petulant Refusal' to Accept Election LossIn the video below, posted to Twitter by Phoenix-based NBC 12 News reporter Brahm Resnik, Ducey reaches into his jacket pocket and quickly silences his phone as it plays “Hail to the Chief,” which can be heard very faintly at around the 7-second mark.Trump has been very vocal about his baseless claims that the election was “rigged” and his false accusations of voter fraud — even his own lawyers have disagreed with the term “fraud” in court. Trump has applied enormous pressure to Republican governors in an effort to convince them to overturn the election results in their states, and when those governors refused to do so, Trump has attacked them.It’s part of a pressure campaign that also included Trump inviting Republican lawmakers to the White House from the swing state of Michigan, presumably with the intent of convincing them to flip the vote in his favor despite his loss to Biden by a significant margin. Fortunately for the country, Trump was unsuccessful and Michigan has since certified Biden’s win in the state.Also Read: Joy Behar Jokes 'Body Snatchers Have Gotten to Maria Bartiromo' After Trump Interview (Video)HE'LL GET BACK TO YOU Back in July, Gov.

Newsmax host Greg Kelly threw a few jabs at Ben Smith for his past leadership at BuzzFeed after the New York Times media columnist’s latest article concluded that Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy thinks the network’s pro-Trump audience is “stupid.”Tweeting on Monday, Kelly claimed that Smith’s Sunday column was just a “networking” opportunity for Smith and said the former editor in chief of BuzzFeed News was resentful of “anyone who’s been successful” at running a media company.“Big, Comfortable and DUMB: BEN SMITH @nytimes columnist ‘jumped ship’ from @BuzzFeed after he ran it into an Iceberg, now writes the Laziest column in the world. ‘Networking’ for HIMSELF every step of the way,” Kelly tweeted. “Ben Smith ran a media company once (@BuzzFeed) spent money like a drunken sailor then lost it all and had to FIRE everybody (BUT HE managed to KEEP his job) — so I can understand how he’d RESENT anyone who’s been successful at it.”Also Read: Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy Thinks His Pro-Trump Audience Is 'Stupid,' NY Times Columnist SaysSmith’s column, “The King of Trump TV Thinks You’re Dumb Enough to Buy It,” argued that the Newsmax CEO treated the cable channel’s conservative audience with “blithe disdain.”“[Ruddy] has them watching a great story — a thriller, a whodunit — about a stolen election,” Smith wrote. “He thinks they’re stupid enough to fall for it, dumb enough to keep watching even after the fantasy inevitably dissolves, buying the supplements and the books and, crucially, tuning in to channel 1115 in large enough numbers that, eventually, the cable companies will pay him.”The column also featured an interview with Ruddy, who said, “In this day and age, people want something that tends to affirm their views and opinions.”Read original story Newsmax Host Rails Against NY Times’ Ben Smith: ‘Big, Comfortable and Dumb’ At TheWrap

One of the most memorable and disturbing evenings in my extensive concert-going career came in the early 2000s at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles when The Pogues came to L.A. on a reunion tour with Shane MacGowan, the lead singer they’d fired more than a decade earlier for his unreliability and substance abuse. MacGowan was a mess, leaving the stage for stretches of the concert and barely able to croak his way through the songs in what seemed to be an alcohol- or drug-induced haze — and yet the audience responded deliriously to every slurred word and cheered even louder for every stumble and slur.Was it a concert or a sideshow? Was the audience so besotted with the beautiful-loser myth that it gloried in the damage MacGowan had done to himself and loved him more because he was such a disaster? Or were they on his side, trying to will him to pull himself together rather than finding entertainment in his wreckage?Whatever the reason for celebrating his chemically-induced ineptitude, the concert was a sad and depressing event for me, even though I loved many of the glorious songs MacGowan had written and sung with The Pogues. And that’s the paradox at the heart of Julien Temple’s playful and moving film about MacGowan, “Crock of Gold” — the singer and songwriter is a wreck, so damaged that he can barely hold his head upright, but he’s a poetic, romantic, astoundingly talented wreck.Also Read: Johnny Depp, Julien Temple to Produce Documentary About Pogues Lead Singer Shane MacGowanTemple, who got his start with the raucous 1980 Sex Pistols mockumentary “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle,” turns out to be the right person to grapple with MacGowan. They’ve both got plenty of punk left in them, and the result is a freewheeling mess of a film, hard to pin down but full of ravaged beauty.The beautiful loser is a time-honored Irish archetype, of course, with MacGowan’s idol Brendan Behan being a prime example. And it’s an irresistible archetype in music: As singers from Chet Baker to Tom Waits have long proven, there’s something about a gorgeous, romantic melody sung in a diseased croak that makes it more interesting, and in an odd way more beautiful too.And Shane MacGowan, make no mistake, is very interesting. Now 62, he grew up poor in County Tipperary in Ireland, learning to drink beer by the age of six and putting up with a distinct lack of modern conveniences: “We’d piss out the front door and s— in the field,” he says, though there’s no way to tell how much he’s embellishing his stories (and Temple isn’t interested in being a fact-checker).Also Read: Oscars Documentary Race Gets Bigger, More Competitive With New Batch of 33 FilmsTo illustrate MacGowan’s early years, which went through an upheaval when the family moved to London when he was six, Temple uses stock footage, old movies, animated sequences and occasional family photos. Most of it doesn’t actually show MacGowan, but the use of so much generic archival material makes this a bigger story — a story about the Irish in England in the middle part of the 20th century. (Much of this is set to the gorgeous, desolate sound of plaintive Irish airs played on uilleann pipes.)The young MacGowan considered being a priest and rhapsodizes about the Catholic Mass being “one of the most beautiful things human beings can experience,” but his life took a dark turn in London, where he was expelled from school for drugs and wound up in the notorious Bedlam psychiatric hospital. He came out “incredibly angry,” saw an incredibly angry band — the Sex Pistols, naturally — and became a punk. “We all thought punk was very good for Shane,” his sister says.But as the music morphed into New Wave and then the peacocky New Romantic movement, MacGowan grew bored. He decided to start his own band and draw on traditional Irish music but, at the same time, “give the tradition a kick in the arse.”Also Read: 'The Go-Go's' Film Review: Transcendent Rock Doc Examines 1980s Glass-Ceiling ShatterersThat’s exactly what The Pogues did, making a grand racket in the process. And even in a drunken stupor, MacGowan turned out to be a magnificent songwriter, finding a rough-hewn, wild romanticism in songs like “The Broad Majestic Shannon,” “The Old Man Drag,” “Rainy Night in Soho” and, of course, the greatest Christmas song of the last three decades, “Fairytale of New York.”The problem is that MacGowan went into The Pogues fond of alcohol and drugs, and emerged nearly destroyed by them. Speaking of the band’s 1988 world tour, his sister says, “He went away and he never came back – not the Shane that I knew.” She had him committed to an asylum; at one point a doctor gave him six months to live. He shot so much heroin into his feet that eventually he could no longer walk.That MacGowan survived to tell this story is shocking; that he tries not to tell it when Temple’s cameras are on is hardly a surprise. Even though the director has recruited a group of MacGowan’s friends to “interview” him — among them, Johnny Depp, Irish republican politician Gerry Adams, singer Bobby Gillespie and MacGowan’s wife, Victoria Mary Clarke — he balks at almost every question and refuses to relate his story in any real way.So instead, Depp pulls out a tape recorder and plays him the audio from old interviews, and MacGowan listens and comments on what he said in the past. It’s not an interview, exactly, but it adds up to one hell of a story.Everything MacGowan says, incidentally, is subtitled — not because of a thick accent, but because of his druggy, garbled drawl, punctuated by a wheezy hiss of a laugh. And yet in his boozy reminiscing, there’s real lyricism: He’s a mess, but he’s also a poet and a mystic.That’s what “Crock of Gold” focuses on. It’s not a glamorous comeback story, but the saga of a gifted, self-destructive loon who somehow didn’t die (which the movie can’t really explain) and who now admits, “I’m not a junkie anymore, but if you handed me a f—ing full syringe I’d pump it straight into my arm. I deserve it for being a good boy for so long.”The film skims over much of MacGowan’s post-Pogues career and doesn’t include any old bandmates talking about him. It’s not the Shane MacGowan chronology; it’s the Shane MacGowan experience. And that’s a tough, heartbreaking and inspiring experience.“I don’t feel fragile or broken or anything,” MacGowan says near the end of the film. Few viewers will look at the bent figure croaking out those words and feel the same way, but “Crock of Gold” makes it impossible not to find the glory in his brokenness.Read original story ‘Crock of Gold’ Film Review: Shane MacGowan Documentary Is Full of Ravaged Beauty At TheWrap
