Kanye West Reportedly Announces New ‘Jesus Is King’ Release Date – HYPEBEAST

October 13th, 2019

A new release date for Kanye West’s forthcoming album Jesus Is King has reportedly been announced. Various attendees of the Kanye West Experience at the George Washington University Lisner Auditorium claim that ‘Ye himself confirmed the album’s tentative release date of October 25, set to coincide with the premiere of the IMAX movie.

Prior to the listening party, West held his weekly Sunday Service at Howard University and performed alongside cousin and singer Tony Williams. On top of appearances by wife Kim Kardashian and their children, Halim Flowers and Momolu Stewart — two D.C. men recently released under the state’s Incarceration Reduction Act of 2017 — also took the stage to talk a little about their stories. As part of her mission for criminal justice reform, Kardashian, who is currently working to be a lawyer, aided in Stewart’s release by writing a two-page petition letter on his behalf.

Jesus Is King was originally scheduled for a September 27 release date but has since been delayed indefinitely due to his constant “tweaking.” Stay tuned to see if West really does release the album this time around.

Elsewhere in music, one of the men charged with Mac Miller’s death has pleaded not guilty.

Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson Touch Tongues in Bed Together – E! NEWS

October 13th, 2019

Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson are getting into the Halloween spirit.

The celebrity pair seems to be kicking back and enjoying each other’s company, because on Sunday night, the Australian singer posted a quick video of him and the “Slide Away” singer lying in bed. What’s more? They took their blossoming romance to new heights as they touched tongues and cuddled.

The 26-year-old star kept things extremely casual and appeared to be wearing only lingerie for their late-night hangout. She donned a comfy grey Calvin Klein bra, while Cody bared it all for the ‘gram and was shirtless.

Moreover, the dynamic duo are definitely getting into the spooky spirit, as they used the Joker filter in the Instagram Story. In fact, earlier this week Cody told E! News that he’s been wanting to see the Todd Phillips thriller movie and was thinking about possibly dressing up as the character for Halloween.

“We’re trying to think about costumes right now,” he said at the Tiffany & Co. launch of the new Tiffany Men’s Collections. “I have no idea. I really want to go see the new Joker movie because I’m a really big fan of the Health [Ledger] version. I’ve done that for Halloween a couple of times, so I was thinking of going and seeing that and maybe doing…I don’t know. I have no plans.”

In recent weeks, the two have been inseparable. Just this morning, they were spotted grabbing coffee together at Blue Bottle Coffee in Studio City. On Saturday, they enjoyed brunch in the same area with Miley’s mom, Tish Cyrus.

“They seemed really at ease,” an eyewitness told E! News about their afternoon hangout. “Miley and Cody seem like old time friends, very comfortable.”

And it seems things are moving fast for the pop stars, as the “Mother’s Daughter” singer referred to Cody as her “BF” after he visited her in the hospital earlier this week.

A source previously told E! News that the 26-year-old star is going with the flow and enjoying things with the Australian singer.

The news of their blossoming romance comes after Miley split with Kaitlynn Carter, whom she was with for a little over a month this past summer. Additionally, the “Slide Away” singer and her longtime partner, Liam Hemsworth called it quits after less than one year of marriage back in August.

Cops seek three ‘persons of interest’ after child, two women hit on sidewalk – Toronto Sun

October 13th, 2019

Pieces of a destroyed stroller and a child’s shoe lay on an east-end sidewalk after a hit-and-run sent a toddler and two women to hospital Sunday morning.

Emergency crews were called to Pharmacy Ave. and Ellesmere Rd. after a grey Dodge Journey SUV mounted the curb and hit a stroller carrying a 20-month-old boy and two women, aged 37 and 57, who were on the sidewalk.

“We got a call at 10:48 a.m. and have transported a child with life-threatening injuries and two females with serious injuries to hospital,” EMS deputy commander Evert Steenge said.

By the afternoon, Toronto Police said the women’s injuries were non-life-threatening and the boy’s condition had also improved.

“His condition has changed and actually gotten better,” Const. Alex Li said. “Before he was in serious, life-threatening condition and he is now in serious non-life-threatening condition.”

The victims were not crossing the street when they were hit, police said.

“We don’t know how the vehicle ended up on the sidewalk,” Insp. Mandeep Mann said.


An image released by Toronto Police of a man they say was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run at Pharmacy and Ellesmere on Oct. 13, 2019.

After the collision, the SUV stopped and a passenger got out.

“The occupant of the vehicle exited and assessed the situation and then fled the scene (on foot),” Mann said.

The Dodge Journey then drove west on Ellesmere. The impact of the collision dislodged the SUV’s front license plate, which police say was left at the scene.

Toronto Police said Sunday evening they were looking three “persons of interest”: Cory Munroe, 49, Derek Desousa, 34, and Amanda Rioux, 30. All three individuals are from Toronto.

The driver is described as a white male with a beard.

Police released an image of the alleged passenger and Mann promised the driver and occupant that they will be found.

“Get a lawyer and turn yourself in,” Mann advised.

On Sunday afternoon, Mayor John Tory referred to the hit and run as an “absolute tragedy.”

“I fully support an increase in penalties for those involved in collisions with pedestrians and even steeper consequences for those who flee the scene,” Tory tweeted. “We are working as a City to reduce collisions but drivers cannot act recklessly and must recognize they bear the ultimate responsibility because they are operating vehicles which can inflict such terrible consequences.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.

Martin Scorsese Doubles Down On Marvel Movie Critique: ‘We Shouldn’t Be Invaded by It’ – Vulture

October 13th, 2019

Last week fans and filmmakers alike felt rubbed the wrong way when Martin Scorsese told Empire magazine that “theme park” movies like those in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were “not cinema.” So what’s another full week of hurt superhero feelings? “It’s not cinema. It’s something else,” the director said Sunday at a BFI London Film Festival press conference for his new film The Irishman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “We shouldn’t be invaded by it. We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films.”

His most recent critique follows other comments made Saturday, when Scorsese took part in the BAFTA’s David Lean Lecture, also in London. “Theaters have become amusement parks. That is all fine and good but don’t invade everything else in that sense,” the director said. “That is fine and good for those who enjoy that type of film and, by the way, knowing what goes into them now, I admire what they do. It’s not my kind of thing, it simply is not. It’s creating another kind of audience that thinks cinema is that.” Hey, at least he admires how much work goes into making all these terrible “theme park” movies? That’s something, right?

‘Enough is enough’: Fury as EU demands more Brexit concessions – National Post

October 13th, 2019

Brussels demanded yet more Brexit concessions from Britain last night, prompting warnings that a deal based on further compromise to the EU would never get through Parliament.

Senior Brexiteers insisted that “enough is enough” after Michel Barnier, Brussels’ chief Brexit negotiator, told EU ambassadors that “more work needs to be done” as he updated them on the state of the talks.

One diplomat from a major member state insisted the UK “must move quickly” if it wants an agreement signed off at this week’s summit, adding: “The clock is ticking.”

The demand came days after European Council president Donald Tusk welcomed the “promising signals” around Boris Johnson’s fresh proposal for how to solve the Irish border issue.

One Cabinet minister hitting out at Brussels for ignoring that the Prime Minister needs to get parliamentary backing for any deal. The minister said: “What the EU need to understand is all their very clever negotiating tactics don’t mean anything if you can’t get it through the House of Commons.

“This was the whole thing with the backstop. They moved on that because the thing they were trying to protect — no border in Ireland — was actually more likely to happen because the deal kept getting voted down.”

The minister blamed the Benn Act — the law which requires the Prime Minister to request another Brexit delay if a deal cannot be agreed this week — for severely damaging the negotiations, saying: “The Benn Act really is toxic. It disincentivises the kind of flexibility the EU needs to display.”

They moved on that because the thing they were trying to protect — no border in Ireland — was actually more likely to happen because the deal kept getting voted down

The impact of the Act seemed to play out in Brussels yesterday, with one EU diplomat saying: “If we end up on Thursday without a deal, we are in extension territory but no one is saying that yet.”

Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, used an interview in the Austrian press to say that if there was a British request for a Brexit extension, it would be granted.

Former Cabinet minister Owen Paterson was exasperated by the EU’s demand for the UK to give further ground.

He said: “They keep chiselling for more concessions that dilute what appears to be a very generous offer for them. The point comes when you have to say enough is enough.”

Mr Johnson yesterday briefed the Cabinet on the progress of the talks in a 30-minute conference call. He told his colleagues that if MPs who are against no deal now oppose a new deal, they would be exposing their true aim of wanting to stop Brexit altogether.

According to a Downing Street insider, Mr Johnson stressed that there was a long way to go but added “where there’s a Wirral, there is a way” – a reference to the location of his meeting with Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar week. A No 10 spokesman said: “The Prime Minister updated Cabinet, reiterating that a pathway to a deal could be seen but that there’s still significant work to get there, and we must remain prepared to leave on Oct 31.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday seemed to rule out voting for the deal – even if it was to be put to the country in a referendum.

He told Sky News’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday: “I think many in Parliament might be more inclined to support it [if there was a referendum] even if they don’t really agree with the deal. I would caution them on this.”
