At a June 28 concert, Beyoncé tweaked a few lyrics to her song “Resentment,” <a href="http://www.people.com/article/beyonce-changes-lyrics-resentment-jayz-cheating-video" target="_blank">changing the line</a> “Been ridin’ with you for six years” to “Been ridin’ with you for 12 years” – a change that reflects her now 12-year relationship with Jay Z. Some took this as a confirmation that Jay Z had, in fact, been caught cheating on his wife, but Beyoncé never commented on the matter, instead opting to post a few family photos on Instagram, a <a href="http://www.people.com/article/beyonce-jay-z-responds-breakup-rumors-instagram-photos" target="_blank">PR habit for Beyoncé</a>.</p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="348" scrolling="no" src="http://instagram.com/p/qWyOYfPwzA/embed/" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>More recent tabloid stories about Beyoncé looking for a luxury apartment for one in Chelsea and the duo not speaking to each other off-stage have also come into the mix. Most likely, the stories will continue to grow in number as the end of their tour approaches – the “On the Run” will have its last show September 13.</p> <p>Sources claim that Beyoncé and Jay Z will announce their split once their tour has come to an end, saying that the twosome are no longer lovers, just business partners.</p> <p>“This [trouble] has been brewing longer than anyone knows. They’re performers. And they’re good performers. It’s a business now, and they are business partners. And they don’t even fight. <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/exclusive-beyonce-jay-z-orchestrate-business-splitting-article-1.1884928" target="_blank">They know what it is</a>,” a source told <em>New York Daily News</em>.</p> <p>While these stories continue to grow, many are still skeptical as to the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/29/beyonce-jay-z-divorce-rumors_n_5631039.html" target="_blank">validity of these rumors</a>. After all, Beyoncé and Jay Z have a history of successfully shielding the inner workings of their relationship from the press, and Beyoncé was able to record and release an entire album with music videos without any word leaking to the press.

However, the sound is only audible to dogs.</p> <p>“I decided that I was going to make a high album – in fact, the highest album ever made, just so that my friends Spot and Rex can hear it, not audible to human ears.

That was never it," Efron explained. "It was<a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/564296/zac-efron-opens-up-about-life-before-rehab-stint-i-needed-a-social-lubricant" target="_blank"> sort of the in-between work</a>—the social aspects outside of it. I mean, everywhere you go to a certain extent, there is press in some form. Whether you're going to an event where you're supposed to be out… there will be press there, if you're leaving your house to go to the grocery store, there will be press there. It can be everywhere and it can be confusing.”</p> <p>As a way of coping with the overbearing situation, Efron reveals he needed a “social lubricant.” Before long his dependency on it grew. “You spend a lot of time in your house, going crazy and pretty soon you need a social lubricant,” he said. “And once I needed that, it became to go anywhere. It was getting to the point where I was caring less about the work and waiting more for the weekend, you know what I mean, when I couldn't wait to go out and sort of let loose and have fun.”</p> <p>Eventually Efron began to take stock of how self-destructive his partying ways were becoming and decided to take a step back and reevaluate how he was living his life. “When Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, I was like, ‘Oh this is bad,'" Efron told Bear Grylls. "I just really want to never again have to take anything from the outside into me to feel good about my outside, to be comfortable in my present skin."</p> <p>While filming <em>Neighbors</em> with <strong>Seth Rogen</strong> last year, an insider said Efron “<a href="http://uinterview.com/news/zac-efron-entered-rehab-earlier-this-year-8823" target="_blank">spiraled out of control</a>,” to TMZ. After a stint in rehab, the actor had reportedly gotten his addictions under control and was much happier. "He's healthy, happy and not drinking," a source told E!

The engaged pair have chosen to remain relatively diplomatic, but have both expressed that they feel Viall’s choice to talk about the private matter was classless.</p> <p>"I really <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/29/bachelorette-andi-dorfman-nick-viall_n_5631543.html" target="_blank">don't care for Nick that much</a>. I think it was a classless move and very disrespectful, but I feel like she handled it with as much class as possible and that's all we're doing in this situation," Murray told HuffPost Live. "We really could care less about that — that's so far in the past, it's crazy. I mean, we're so much in love."</p> <p>Dorfman added, “I just felt like, again, [it was] just kind of classless. That's supposed to be private and I don't know what purpose you're accomplishing by doing that. But you know, we're going to take the high road, and I'm not going to let that overshadow the happiness.”</p> <p>“We get so bogged down so much [by] negativity or this dramatic thing and at the end of the day, I'm walking away happy with a fiance, with somebody that I love, and I don't really want anything to overshadow that,” Dorfman continued.</p> <p>After the backlash he received for making the private affair public, Viall claimed he never planned to mention it, but that he was driven to it by Dorfman's apparent lack of empathy. Either way, he never wanted to publicly humiliate her. "If I have regrets, I <a href="http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/nick_viall_very_sorry_bachelorette_andi_dorfman_humiliated_sex_fantasy_suite_reveal-2014-07" target="_blank">didn't want in any way to humiliate her</a> or make her feel that way and I feel very sorry if she did feel that way, that makes me sad," Viall said. "It is a conversation I wanted to have ... and unfortunately, that was my only opportunity to do that. But it's nothing in a million years I would have planned."</p>Wed, 30 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/n1dupboizq<![CDATA[Robyn Lowey, Australian Model, Protests New Coal Mine With Naked Selfie]]>http://uinterview.com/news/robyn-lowey-australian-model-protests-new-coal-mine-with-naked-selfie-12287<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/robyn-lowey-australian-model-protests-new-coal-mine-with-naked-selfie-12287'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/3fc7f12e3468d24df3acd88b811fe3f1-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Australian model <strong>Robyn Lawley </strong>shared a censored naked selfie on Instagram to protest coal mining in Australia.</p> <p>Lawley is famous for being the first plus-size model to grace the cover of Austrailian <em>Vogue</em>, but she is also known as a vocal environmentalist.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>The massive new Carmichael coal mine would wreck havoc on our Great Barrier Reef.

Weaver understands the character as someone with so little that she clings to the supernatural to give meaning to her lonesome existence.</p> <p>“She’s very needy. Mourning her husband, she’s lonely and she's grasping at any opportunity for comfort,” Weaver explained exclusively to uInterview. “And combined with that, she's quite a naive, gullible, innocent. So she's ripe for that sort of swindling — for that sort of trickery. And they’re the sorts of people that get preyed on by people who take lots of money to predict things.”</p> <p>To play Grace, Weaver said she was able to imagine her mindset by channeling older, gullible women she knows in her life, adding, “I’m an older woman, but I’m not gullible." Weaver doesn’t share Grace’s resolute belief in an afterlife either, saying that she tends to sit on the fence. “I wouldn’t say I’m a believer, but I’m not a disbeliever," she told uInterview.</p> <p>Though <em>Magic in the Moonlight</em> deals with the supernatural, it's really about romance, according to Weaver. “I think it’s about romance and love. Like all Woody Allen movies, it’s quite philosophical," she said. " I think it’s the chemistry, that inexplicable chemistry that happens between two people.”</p> <p>Working with Allen, Weaver didn’t have much direction – but she did receive some praise. “ I’ve got little bits of direction here and there. He doesn’t say a lot,” Weaver revealed. “A couple of times he said, 'That was perfect!'”</p> <p><em>Magic in the Moonlight, </em>which also stars <strong>Colin Firth </strong>and <strong>Emma Stone</strong>,<em> </em>is currently in theaters.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/LAwbwKURvm0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p> </p>Wed, 30 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/4foremadvdeso0gw<![CDATA['Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Zack Hits On Hanna, Spencer And Emily Learn About Bethany's Relationship With Mrs. D]]>http://uinterview.com/news/pretty-little-liars-recap-zack-hits-on-hanna-spencer-and-emily-learn-about-bethanys-relationship-with-mrs-d-12284<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/pretty-little-liars-recap-zack-hits-on-hanna-spencer-and-emily-learn-about-bethanys-relationship-with-mrs-d-12284'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/41e867417893d6c744b462e440d498fa-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Spencer and Emily chased down a lead on Bethany and Mrs. DiLaurentis and Ali invited herself over to Hanna’s house so she could gain some credibility in <em>Pretty Little Liars</em>’ “Scream for Me.”</p> <h1> Detective Tanner Questions Ali</h1> <p>Detective Tanner (<strong>Roma Maffia</strong>) clearly doubts the story Ali (<strong>Sasha Pieterse</strong>) fed the police about her abduction, and Ali knows it. Tanner pulls her out of choir for a quick chat about Shana, asking her if she ever contacted her during her time away. Ali tries to gain control of the situation by pressing Tanner about who killed her mother, but Tanner clearly isn’t satisfied. Regardless, she leaves and Ali goes to inform Aria (<strong>Lucy Hale</strong>), Spencer (<strong>Troian Bellisario</strong>) and Hanna (<strong>Ashley Benson</strong>) about her interrogation. Aria blames Hanna for spilling her guts at the café, and the group thinks that A must have tipped Tanner off about them being in New York. Hanna’s sorry, but also increasingly out of it, and Spencer and Emily grow concerned when an empty beer can falls out of her locker in the middle of the hallway.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/r0rAXd72djU" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>With Tanner asking questions about Shana and her death, Aria is especially on edge and even more pissed at Hanna for slipping up about New York while she was drunk. She goes outside to call Ezra to warn him that Tanner might contact him about Shana and runs into her mother, Ella (<strong>Holly Marie Combs</strong>), who is stopping by Rosewood High to drop off some invitations to her engagement party. Ella asks Aria to be her maid of honor, and Aria happily accepts, but she is a bit distracted – what with Tanner’s investigation and her volunteer/detective hours at Radley.</p> <h1> Bethany And Mrs. DiLaurentis</h1> <p>After school during her time at Radley, Aria finds out that Eddie Lamb has left the mental hospital and is able to get some one-on-one time with Big Rhonda (<strong>Ambrit Millhouse</strong>), Bethany’s old roommate, who trades her soda and chips for information on Bethany.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/U2aZJ94v_DU" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Rhonda tells Aria that some “rich lady” used to bring Bethany gifts and take her out on weekends, specifically they would go to a nearby stable, where Mrs. D even adopted a horse named Custard for her. Aria relays this new information to Spencer and Emily who track down the stable and go up there to investigate. There, they meet Declan, the sole employee who is neither helpful, nor a very good businessman. However, he does let something slip about “the bucket incident.” The last time Mrs. D and Bethany were at the stables, Mrs. D insisted to Bethany that she call her “Aunt Jesse,” and Bethany freaked out and threw a bucket at her.</p> <p>After Declan leaves, Spencer insists that she and Emily stick around to investigate the grounds, and she finds Melissa’s riding cap sitting in the stables. Before they can process what this might mean, the two girls find themselves stuck in a stall with an increasingly riled up horse. They are able to break free, but Spencer ends up with a nasty black eye.</p> <p>At home, Toby (<strong>Keegan Allen</strong>) tells Spencer that he has enrolled in the Police Academy. He wants to help keep everyone safe, to be someone at the Rosewood PD that they can trust. At first, Spencer laughs in his face, but after her experience at the stables and her new suspicions about Melissa’s involvement in Bethany’s death, she embraces the idea.</p> <p>Emily approaches Sydney (<strong>Chloe Bridges</strong>) at school to try to figure out what exactly Hanna told her when she was drunk, but Sydney brushes it off and says she doesn’t even remember Hanna mentioning anything about New York. What Sydney does reveal to Emily is that the swim team has voted to add her on as team captain. Emily is hesitant to accept, so Sydney shows up at her house later with a custom-made sweatshirt to try to get her to change her mind. While there, Sydney mentions her mother’s frozen yogurt business and tells Emily that she must have seen some of her stores when she was in New York. Sydney tries to cover her slip, but Emily is definitely suspicious.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/BF9ohqr4vDU?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <h1> Zack Hits On Hanna</h1> <p>As for Hanna, things are going from bad to worse. Ali asks if she could stay at her house for a few days, and Hanna tries to brush her off, so Ali goes straight to Ashley and appeals to her maternal instincts. Not wanting to be in the same house as Ali, Hanna walks out before dinner and goes to drink with Caleb (<strong>Tyler Blackburn</strong>). Before she and Caleb can go to his cabin, Hanna needs food to go with her alcohol so she stops by the café and asks Ella's fiancé Zack (<strong>Steve Talley</strong>) for a tuna melt. At the café, Zack busts her for drinking, but says he won’t tell anyone – he’s always had a thing for bad girls. Zack cozies up to Hanna and puts his hand on her back, making Hanna very uncomfortable. She wants to bring it up to Aria, but Spencer and Emily doubt her story, pointing out that she was tipsy at the time.</p> <p>The next night, Zack spots Hanna eating alone in her car and gets in the front seat. He doesn’t stay long, but makes sure to leave Hanna with his phone number and tells her to call him. It’s definitely creepy enough to send Hanna straight to Aria’s. Aria, who is busy making paper flowers for her mother’s engagement party, dismisses Hanna’s claims. If Hanna wants to get drunk and mess up her life, that’s fine, but Aria wants nothing to do with it.</p> <p>Hanna’s night gets worse when she comes home to find that Ali asked Noel Kahn to break into her home, manipulating Ashley into calling the police and adding some credibility to her kidnapping story.</p> <p>The episode ended with A breaking into Spencer’s room, picking up Melissa’s riding helmet and then opening up a secret hiding spot under one of the floorboards.</p> <p><em>Pretty Little Liars</em> airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uh-krRna9gc" width="300"></iframe></p>Wed, 30 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/yd4bx8tgry80oo<![CDATA[Prince Harry Photobombs New Zealand Rugby Coach Gordon Tietjens]]>http://uinterview.com/news/prince-harry-photobombs-new-zealand-rugby-coach-gordon-tietjens-12283<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/prince-harry-photobombs-new-zealand-rugby-coach-gordon-tietjens-12283'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/cc6495236478431ddadcd336f0005e0e-150x150.png' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Prince Harry</strong> photobombed the New Zealand rugby sevens coach <strong>Sir Gordon Tietjens</strong> in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games on Monday.</p> <h1> Prince Harry's Photobomb</h1> <p>Prince Harry gave two thumbs up and sported an open-mouthed grin in his photobomb of Tietjens snap with Sport Manawatu chief executive <strong>Trevor Shailer </strong>and Massey University Professor Emeritus <strong>Gary Hermansson</strong>.

"I feel like it's time,” he went on, adding, "I loved the experience."</p> <p>The last time Chmerkovskiy left <em>Dancing with the Stars,</em> it had been on less than pleasant terms. At the time, Chmerkovskiy had a lot of criticism for ABC’s dancing show and was clearly skeptical upon returning for the 19th season, on which he was paired with Olympic ice dancer<strong> Meryl Davis.</strong></p> <p>"When I came back to the show, it was not the same,” he admitted. “I was different, probably… When I came back, I saw this amazing talent, <strong>Val</strong> [<strong>Chmerkovskiy</strong>, his brother] included…I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better, I was taking up a huge spot.”</p> <p>Chmerkovksiy couldn’t have had a better return season, as he ended up <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/dancing-with-the-stars-finale-recap-meryl-davis-and-maksim-chmerkovskiy-win-amy-purdy-and-derek-hough-runner-ups-11552" target="_blank">winning the coveted Mirror Ball trophy</a> with Davis after they dominated on the dance floor week after week.</p> <p>Though Chmerkovskiy has no plans on competing on <em>Dancing with the Stars </em>in the future, it is possible that he’ll return to the show in some capacity – at least according to DWTS executive producer <strong>Rob Wade.</strong></p> <p>"I've just come back to the show, but I was on the show in season one and Maks came on in season two, so I've known Maks for 10 years now and he's a very good friend," Wade said earlier this month. "I'm absolutely hoping Maks comes back to the show. I don't know whether it's going to be as a dancer. I think there's a number of different things we can talk to him about and the way he'd be involved in the show.

In the book, Kyle writes about a man he dubbed “Scruff Face,” who disparaged Navy Seals, and consequently received a punch to the face from Kyle that knocked the former wrestler to the ground.</p> <p>According to Ventura, he neither made any such remarks, nor did Kyle ever physically assault him.

Since Howard still plays for the EPL’s Everton, NBC Sports is committed to working around his playing schedule, as that will continue to take top priority.</p> <p>"I think I got the balance right [last season]," said Howard, who commentated six games for NBC Sports last year. "To be honest, my schedule is eat, train, sleep and try and recover. I spend a lot of time in my home in Manchester, feet up on the bed, just resting."</p> <p>Howard’s star power is undoubtedly on the rise following his heroic performance in the United States' quarterfinal match against Belgium at the 2014 World Cup. In the game, Howard made a record-breaking (for a World Cup game) <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/tim-howard-becomes-a-hero-after-performance-in-us-vs-belgium-world-cup-match-12004" target="_blank">16 saves,</a> holding the score at 0-0 throughout the 90 minutes of regulation.</p> <p>While Howard appears to be the epitome of composure on the soccer pitch, the athlete admits his nerves threaten to get the best of him behind the mic.</p> <p>"On the surface, it seems so easy, but then you get in the booth and <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tim-howard-talks-broadcasting-future-721975" target="_blank">your knees start shaking</a>," Howard told reporters on Tuesday, according to <em>The Hollywood Reporters.</em> "It takes such skill. As a player you know the game, but being able to apply that and do it in the right way is very, very hard."</p> <p>As he continues to grow more comfortable talking about the game live for fans, Howard has started to warm to the idea of parlaying his playing career into one as a full-time analyst when it’s time for him to retire from the pitch.</p> <p>"I didn't know if television commentary was something I wanted to do," Howard said. "Dabbling in it is the obvious thing to do right now, but I realize how difficult it was doing just 7 or 8 games last year... It's still in its infancy, where I am at the moment, but if I can do this after I'm done playing, that's something I would enjoy."</p> <p> </p>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/7t6val3bugw<![CDATA[Halle Berry's 'Extant' Bumped To Later Timeslot After Modest Ratings]]>http://uinterview.com/news/halle-berrys-extant-bumped-to-later-timeslot-after-modest-ratings-12279<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/halle-berrys-extant-bumped-to-later-timeslot-after-modest-ratings-12279'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/b9d840af5f6f0ac5502ee425d57ed5ab-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>CBS is moving <em>Extant, </em>which stars Oscar-winner <strong>Halle Berry<i>, </i></strong> from the 9 to 10 p.m. timeslot on Wednesday evenings.</p> <h1> Extant Gets New Timeslot</h1> <p>Just three weeks into its freshman season, <em>Extant’s</em> ratings are causing some concern for CBS.

With Patti, Nick expounds upon his love for Andi, gushing about his feelings until Patti starts to tear up. When he gets Hy’s ear, Nick asks for Andi’s hand in marriage, provided she gives him the final rose. After a prolonged silence, Hy gives Nick a reluctant endorsement. As for Andi’s sister <strong>Rachel</strong>, she’s not terribly interested in what Andi has to say about Nick.</p> <p>The family is reluctant to accept Andi’s choice of Josh, since he seems to be the type she typically brings home, who never ultimately make her happy. They do, however, appreciate Josh’s obvious nerves and Rachel thinks it’s possible he’s taking it seriously. When it comes time to face Hy, Josh maintains that he’s genuine in his feelings for Andy and manages to keep his composure when asking permission to propose to his daughter. Later on, Josh has to face another round of interrogations from Andi, who is still concerned about his commitment. Fortunately, he has “proof” in his back pocket and pulls out an “Andi Murray” baseball card, complete with cute stats.</p> <h1> Andi Sends Nick Home</h1> <p>On her Last Chance date with Nick, Andi gets some pressure from him to show him or tell him somehow that he’s the one she wants. Though Andi declines, Nick, after stumbling through an awkward toast, feels somewhat reassured. His anxiety, he explains, stems from the fact that the last woman he proposed to broke off their engagement. He gifts Andi with a necklace with a vial of sand from the date on which he told her he loved her and hopes his love doesn’t end up unrequited.</p> <p>After Josh picks out an oval-cut diamond ring from Neil Lane, it looks like it’s going to be Nick’s turn to pick out an engagement ring – but Andi pays him a visit before he gets the chance. She admits that things just aren’t right with him and that she doesn’t want to put him through the Rose Ceremony. "Honestly, the last date—I wanted to just have fun and wanted to relax, and as hard as I tried I couldn't do that with you,” she said. “I feel like a life with you would be me over-analyzing every single moment." Nick can’t believe how Andi strung him along and cries on his way to the airport.</p> <h1> Final Rose</h1> <p>With the suspense gone, Andi waits at the end of the brick road for Josh. Josh, who doesn’t know he already has the competition in the bag, professes his love for Andi. When it’s her turn to talk, she makes him wait over a minute to reveal that she loves him too. Josh then gets down on one knee and proposes and receives a “yes” from the Bachelorette.</p> <p>In the live <em>After the Final Rose</em> special, Andi had to come face-to-face with Nick. Still somewhat bruised from getting dumped, Nick admits that it’s hard for him to understand what went wrong. He’s also upset that she slept with him, knowing she didn’t love him. “If you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why you made love to me,” he tells Andi, who is irate he’d make something like that private. All the same, she maintains that what she felt for him at the time was real.</p> <p>As for Josh, when he makes his way out onto the stage, he can’t stop saying how in love he is with Andi. Also, making sure everyone knows about their sex life too, claims he’s trying to get her pregnant.</p> <p><em>Bachelor in Paradise </em>kicks off next Monday on ABC at 8/7c.</p> <p> </p>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/1av9c0z0fm00ggk<![CDATA[James Shigeta, Groundbreaking Asian-American Actor, Dies At 81]]>http://uinterview.com/news/james-shigeta-groundbreaking-asian-american-actor-dies-at-81-12270<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/james-shigeta-groundbreaking-asian-american-actor-dies-at-81-12270'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/4527fee5e38e27198322aa37f7b36b94-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Legendary Asian-American actor James Shigeta died at the age of 81 on Monday, July 28.</p> <h1> James Shigeta Died July 28</h1> <p>Shigeta’s agent announced the news on Monday with a statement:</p> <p>“It is with great sadness that I report the loss of my long time friend and client James Shigeta…James passed peacefully in his sleep, July 28, 2014, at 2 p.m. The world has lost a great actor.

The string dolls were found in random hotel bedroms and lobbies filled with Comic-Con attendees. They were also spotted near <em>The Walking Dead</em> booth on the convention floor and hanging from the popular pedestrian bridge, and sidewalks down Fifth Street, leading to Comic-Con.</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://server.uinterview.com/cms/uinterview/custom_series_news/2a2a2cff9350b158ebe5f0e5638665ed.JPG" style="width: 300px; height: 186px;" /></p> <h1> Mystery Voodoo Dolls Found At Comic-Con</h1> <p>The dolls came with a small thumb drive and had “Malum Est” written on their bodies. When connected, the drive directs the lucky recipient to a choppy video, where the same “Malum Est” phrase is clearly seen. It is unclear where, exactly, these dolls were found. Journalist <strong>Emma Loggins</strong> posted a photo of a voodoo doll she found at the convention, writing, “Found a creepy #voodoo doll today at #sdcc.”</p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="348" scrolling="no" src="http://instagram.com/p/q5hU5UHyOA/embed/" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>The video does not, however, say what exactly it is promoting. Google voodoo dolls and Comic-Con, and the answer remains just as much of a mystery. However, a search on Twitter of ‘Malum Est’ revealed a photo of <em>American Horror Story: Coven</em> star <strong>Emma Roberts</strong> with one of the <a href="http://emmaroberts-.tumblr.com/post/93070101952" target="_blank">voodoo dolls in question</a>, and <em>American Horror Story: Coven</em> featured a prominent Voodoo Queen character, played by<strong> Angela Bassett</strong>.</p> <p>Another photo, this one shared by Fox Home Entertainment, shows <em>AHS: Coven</em> co-star <strong>Sarah Paulson</strong> signing an “exclusive #CovenSDCC voodoo [doll].” Unfortunately, the photo is taken from a distance, so it is unclear whether or not the voodoo doll in the photo also has “Malum Est” written on it.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/MsSarahPaulson">@MsSarahPaulson</a> signing one of our exclusive <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CovenSDCC?src=hash">#CovenSDCC</a> voodoo dolls at booth #4229.

Smith</strong> has apologized for his remarks on domestic violence that sparked backlash on Friday.</p> <h1> Stephen A. Smith Apologizes</h1> <p>On ESPN’s <em>First Take</em> Monday morning, Smith appeared in a pre-taped segment to <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/stephen-smith-apologizes-domestic-violence-remarks-article-1.1882655?false" target="_blank">make a formal apology.</a></p> <p>“On Friday, speaking right here on <em>First Take</em> on the subject of domestic violence, I made what can only amount to the most egregious error of my career,” Smith said. “My words came across that it is somehow a woman’s fault. This was not my intent. It is not what I was trying to say.”</p> <p>“To say what I actually said was foolish is an understatement,” Smith added. “To say I was wrong is obvious. To apologize — to say I’m sorry — doesn’t do the matter it’s proper justice, to be quite honest. But I do sincerely apologize.”</p> <p>“You all deserved ... a better man last Friday sitting on this very set, in this very chair,” Smith went on after noting he’s reached out to both his mother and sisters to apologize for his remarks.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/lWgPh8JlOXs" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Last week, after it was revealed that Baltimore Ravens running back <strong>Ray Rice</strong> had received a two-game suspension for the <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/nfl-star-ray-rice-allegedly-caught-on-tape-knocking-out-fiancee-janay-palmer-10585" target="_blank">domestic violence incident </a>with his now-wife <strong>Janay Palmer</strong>, the topic was used for discussion on <em>First Take. </em>Weighing in on the matter Smith opined, among other things, that victims of domestic violence should avoid doing “<a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/stephen-smith-controversial-remarks-domestic-violence-defends-twitter-article-1.1880343" target="_blank">anything to provoke</a> wrong actions.”</p> <p>Smith subsequently took to Twitter in an effort to better articulate what he had meant by his comment and to assert that he doesn’t condone domestic violence in any situation.</p> <p>“I want to reiterate strongly, it is <a href="http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1s2kd5m" target="_blank">never OK to put your hands on a women</a>. Ever,” wrote Smith. “I do NOT believe a woman provokes the horrible domestic abuses that are sadly such a major problem in our society … I understand why my comments could be taken another way. I should have done a better job articulating my thoughts and I sincerely apologize.”</p> <p>ESPN has also released a statement, distancing the network from Smith’s comments on Friday and expressing confidence in the sincerity of its employee’s apology.</p> <p>“We will continue to have constructive dialogue on this important topic," the statement read. "Stephen’s comments last Friday do not reflect our company’s point of view. As his apology demonstrates, he recognizes his mistakes and has a deeper appreciation of our company values.”</p> <p> </p>Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2ct6qqcu38w044c8/1fdu52vvov8gg0o/4fo5v87opaioc0/sjri7zqh39wogc/333o86ty3pic4s/8ubi1uwgpekgw/1f9wg54i7lc040o/ga58u4d60i04cwk/3korx8jd7ugwgs/2athvgcrly3oo0
