Rebel Wilson: Happy Cats Purr

Have you ever wondered…Isn’t it romantic?

The new and hilarious movie “Isn’t it romantic” is just that cute, that afterward, you will ask yourself do you need more romantic in your life? However, this is not a sappy movie at all, although you might be confused with the title. But, whatever you might think, romantic comedies are always so popular.

The true validation of this fact comes from the audience that was thrilled with this movie which was released right on time – on Valentine’s day. It seems we’re all searching for romance – at least in the movies. Starring Rebel Wilson, this movie is breaking prejudices we might have when we see a chubby girl and a hot muscled guy together.

This movie is funny, interesting and dynamic, and it will keep you eating your popcorn for 90 minutes. A sort of an ordinary plot was improved by the unbelievable energy of Rebel Wilson, who plays the main part.

Isn’t It Romantic?

If you still haven’t seen the movie, here is the quick plot:

Rebel Wilson plays Natalie, a sweet but chubby girl with a lack of confidence, and no faith in true love or romance. No wonder, because her mother (Jennifer Saunders) told her that girls like them could only find a husband if he ever needs a visa. Natalie’s skepticism was growing in years, and so she is disgusted with the idea of romance. She hates love movies, and yet, her life is going to become one.

She moved to New York where she started to work as an architect. But, not even in New York, men did not take her seriously, even though she is a professional designer of a hotel, and has a billionaire Blake as her client ((Liam Hemsworth). But, her life is soon going to be changed. After she was mugged in the subway and got hit by Blake’s limousine – her life took the other way round and become the thing she once hated – the romantic comedy.

She Is The Cat

Wilson, who has recently turned 39, is ready to surprise the audience once again. Namely, Rebel Wilson is the star in this year’s upcoming Cats movie. For this special occasion, she shared her photos with her Instagram followers.

The posts were showing her birthday celebration, where she took a cake-making class and was performing a so-called — “catzercise”. It’s actually the video of the rehearsal when Rebel and her friends were performing in furry cat costumes with cute kitty ears.

As Wilson commented under the photo, it was a surprise from her friends, and they eventually ended in CATZERCISE in Beverly Hills. Rebel Wilson continued her funny comments saying that Catsersize is a great way of getting a hot body for the summer. In her own style, she added the punchline: “Don’t be a pussy and try it.”

Chainsmokers Single Acquires Diamond Status

Chainsmokers are 2018’s world’s second highest-paid DJ’s following David Guetta, Diplo and Steve Aoki. According to Forbes, their hit single “Closer” that has topped the charts for the third year running earning a “Diamond” status. The duo posted this new achievement on their respective Instagram pages informing their flowers that their once RIAA seven-time platinum (March 2017) status has gained a new status.

A song acquires the diamond certification from a multi-platinum status after it has shipped at least 10 million units. The chain-smokers duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart are now valued at combined earnings of $45.5 million.

The much-deserved wealth and fame of the Chainsmokers is not just for their 2016 single “closer”, which garnered several awards and nominations in that year, but also for a couple of hits before this single and also for their singles “Memories…Do not Open,” and “Something Just Like This

Closer” was a product of the duo’s collaboration with Halsey and turned out to be her hit single. The success of this song was both due to the large following that the duo has and partly due to Halsey’s massive fan base.

Another source of the 6-figure bank balance by Chaismokers is their residency deal. The duo apparently sign a deal with Wynn Nightlife and have collected nightly sales for their sets for the third year running.

Apart from “Closer” none of the other titles by Chainsmokers has dominated Billboard 200’s top 10 for a surprisingly long time. Other artists like Calvin Harris, Odesza, Above & Beyond and even Aviici (RIP) overtake them from time to time. What’s incredible is how relentless Chainsmokers is and this is the reason “Memories…Do Not Open” and their other titles always manage to get their turn.

Speaking of “Memories…Do Not Open” this is one of their titles that enjoyed a good round in Top 40 radio and was played on repeat by many of their fans. Like the others, this title never stayed in Billboard 200’s top 10 for a long time, but it has always been on the top five list for top Electronic Albums or Top Dance since its debut in April of last year.

All these incidents took place without being reported, as they go unnoticed and unheard because violence against the gay group is a regular thing in Jamaica Gareth Henry told NBC. The violence is so intense that fear has polarised most people. The gay people live every day in fear with the hope that better days will soon come. His efforts to bring change in the society led to police officers targeting his life. Gareth Henry claims that in 2007, a group of police officers beat him up in front of a mob in a pharmacy. This was the third time police officers were attacking him. Later he went into hiding. Henry goes ahead to say that later that year while he had was at a traffic light, a police officer came to him and claimed that they had found him and they were going to kill him. This led him to flee his home and seek asylum in Canada. He states that moving to Canada was between death and life opportunity.

Interview with Alex Pall

The Chainsmokers became a household name in a few short years but just how did they manage to rise out of obscurity so quickly? Mathias Rosenzweig recently had a chat with Alex Pall about how the DJ and production duo first came to be, how they’ve dealt with their pervasive fame and where they plan to go in the future. The two first met in NYC when Taggart was enrolled at one of the local universities and Pall was taking whatever gigs he could get in and around NYC. After Pall’s manager introduced the two, they immediately could tell they would work well together. Taggart subsequently dropped out of Syracuse to work with Pall on a daily basis and the rest is history. It wasn’t long before they released their first hit single, “Selfie.” One hit single led to another and, before they knew it, they had become household names.

What makes them stand out from other DJs, however, is their willingness to sing on their own songs. Pall considers it essential as the lyrics of the songs pertain to his life. They also had a blast collaborating with Halsey as Alex classified her as a fun, unique artist who’s not afraid to be herself. He then discussed his demographic, talking about how much it’s grown over the years from mostly college students to people of all ages. And they don’t take single second of their fame for granted, stating how much they appreciate everyone who loves and listens to their music.

As for their live shows, they’ve grown and developed over the years to adapt to the perpetually-changing music industry. One point of pride for the DJ and production duo is the fact that they always sing live during their concerts. And they don’t plan on going anywhere as Pall believes that if they took a few years off, things just wouldn’t be the same when they return to the music scene. So we wish them the best of luck in the future of their musical career and hope they have continued success as a DJ and production do.

Lawrence Bender’s Hollywood Life

Lawrence Bender is a Hollywood producer responsible for some of the most notable independent films of the 1990s and the 2000s. Known predominantly for his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino, Lawrence Bender had his first breakthrough hit with Tarantino’s debut, Reservoir Dogs. The film is a classic piece of cinema involving a group of loosely aligned criminals dealing with the chaotic aftermath of a jewel heist gone wrong. While the movie’s avant-garde direction and nonlinear timeline made the film a gamble, Bender’s gambit paid off and kickstarted a lucrative career as a producer.

Tarantino continued his partnership with Lawrence Bender through much of their respective careers which includes Pulp Fiction (where he cameos as “long-haired yuppie scum”), the Kill Bill series, and Inglourious Basterds. Lawrence Bender would also have multiple collaborations with Robert Rodriquez on projects such as From Dusk til Dawn and Four Rooms which also involved Tarantino. During this period, Bender also served as producer for Good Will Hunting which launched the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. All through the 90s, Bender showed a knack for taking on projects with independent filmmakers and making stars.

As Lawrence Bender moved into the 2000s, he produced the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth which has since become synonymous with climate change awareness. Other Bender-produced documentaries include The Youngest Candidate in 18-20 years running for public office and Countdown to Zero on nuclear proliferation during the War on Terror. Moving into the 2010s, Bender produced Mel Gibson’s gritty war piece Hacksaw Ridge and Martin Scorsese’s spiritual epic Silence, again demonstrating a desire to produce films somewhat out of synch with the rest of the Hollywood trends. Bender also returned to produce An Inconvenient Sequel and the upcoming Kill Bill: Vol 3. Lawrence Bender has made a long and profitable career in Hollywood by embracing enthusiastic independence in filmmakers, wowing audiences and shaping cinema for three decades.
