If you sit back and think about it, Kanye West really does act like a super villain. This isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes his efforts are meant for good, but it just doesn't come across that way.
1. He has collaborated with his enemy like Magneto did (yes, that makes Taylor Swift Professor X).
2. He laughs maniacally but is hiding anger behind it.
3. He has a signal to his fans.
4. We're pretty sure he doesn't think that he's human.

5. He really talks himself up.
6. He's gone through a terrible accident only to come out stronger on the other side, like how Mr. Freeze became the way he was after an accident in his lab.
7. Kanye has a noble cause (defending the lack of recognition for Beyoncé), but just goes about it the wrong way. Kind of like how Poison Ivy was an environmentalist, but decided to kill for it...
8. He publicly outs his enemies.

Filmmaker Steven Spielberg has cast acting newcomer Ruby Barnhill to play the lead female role in his upcoming adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg. The British actress will make her feature film debut as Sophie, a young girl who teams up with the Queen of England and the Big Friendly Giant (aka BFG) to fight off a group of man-eating giants threatening the human world.
A statement from Spielberg reads, "After a lengthy search, I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvellous as we do. We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill."
Barnhill adds, "I feel incredibly lucky and I'm so happy. Sophie gets to go on this wonderful adventure and I'm so excited that I get to play her."
Production is slated to begin next year (15) and the film will hit theatres in July, 2016.
This isn't the first screen adaptation of the 1982 novel - an animated TV movie featuring the voices of British actors David Jason and Amanda Root as The BFG and Sophie, respectively, was released in 1989.
Juno star Ellen Page has been honoured as Out Magazine's Entertainer of the Year for her bravery in 'coming out' earlier this year (14).
The actress declared her sexuality during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign's Time To Thrive conference in Las Vegas on Valentines Day (14Feb14). Page has now been awarded for her bravery by editors of the gay magazine, who have named her Entertainer of the Year and featured her on one of four celebrity covers for the publication's annual OUT100 double issue.
Page tells the publication, "No one's ever been so direct as to say, 'You're gay, so we're gonna hide it.' But there's an unspoken thing going on. (People) believe it's the right thing to do for your career. They don't realize it's eroding your soul. It was eventually about me being like, 'Wait, why am I listening to that? At what point did I let those things become important?'"
British singer Sam Smith was named Breakout of the Year, actor Zachary Quinto was awarded Artist of the Year and Orange is the New Black actress Samira Wiley received Ingenue of the Year.
The stars all feature on the magazine's other three covers.
Friday Night Lights introduced the world to Taylor Kitsch and for that we are eternally grateful. But it also gave us so much more. The fantastic characters and realistic performances made it a show that went beyond high school football. It has since claimed its well-earned spot as one of the best shows ever to grace our TV screens. Even though FNL lasted for five seasons, we’re still not over it.
1. Tami and Eric Taylor’s relationship.
Easily one of the best married couples to ever be portrayed on TV.
2. General Tim Riggins debauchery.
Including, but not limited to, the day drinking, the affair with his best friend’s girl and that time he screwed the single mom who lived next door. Riggins, we wouldn’t have you any other way.
3. Tim Riggins' unwavering Texas pride.
Pretty convinced no one loved Texas as much as Riggins.
4. The cockiness of Smash Williams.
He was so full of himself, and we ate it up.
5. Tami Taylor's magical hair.
Ok, technically it's Connie Britton's magical hair, and we can still see it on Nashville, but we miss how perfect Tami always looked.
6. Every time Coach Taylor went into over-protective dad mode.
7. And on a related note, the fact that Kyle Chandler was a total DILF.
8. Matt Saracen’s emotional scenes.
Remember the petition to get Zach Gilford an Emmy nomination? Still bummed that nomination never happened.
9. Matt's grandma.
We loved Grandma Saracen. And we loved how Matt took care of her.
10. How annoying Julie was.
Yes, that's how much we miss FNL. We even miss Julie's whining.
11. The football games.
Even if you weren't a football fan, these scenes were still exciting to watch.
12. Tim and Jason Street's friendship.
That episode when they go to New York. Bromance at its best.
13. Landry's wise words of advice.
We miss when Jesse Plemons was sweet, funny Landry. It helps us block out creepy Todd, his character on Breaking Bad.
14. The fact that FNL introduced a whole new set of characters in season four, and we ended up loving them just as much as the old ones.
Hell yes, Michael B. Jordan. Go Lions!
15. Buddy Garrity. 'Nuff said.
World's biggest football fan, and world's most obnoxious car salesman/human being. We loved watching him annoy everybody.
16. Coach’s inspiring pep talks.
We don't even play football, yet we were ready to grab a helmet and get out on the field after one of these speeches.
17. The way Tim looked at Lyla.
18. Whenever Lyla actually lightened up.
And any scene involving Mindy Collette.
19. Landry and Tyra's relationship.
We loved how this unexpected romance blossomed. (We'll just pretend that murder storyline from season two never happened, shall we?)
20. That feeling of victory.
Rooting for the characters and then seeing them succeed was the best feeling ever.
21. The utterance of this phrase.

Comedienne Chelsea Handler couldn't escape Jason Biggs' pee stream during a recent boating vacation with the actor and his wife - because she was too busy laughing to swim away. The moment the American Pie star decided to relieve himself off the side of a boat onto Handler as she clung to the vessel was caught on video and has since gone viral, and now the funnywoman is explaining why she found Biggs' urine hilarious.
Appearing on U.S. late night show Conan on Wednesday (15Oct14), she said, "I did not want to be urinated on... (but) it did happen and I'm still here.
"I got off the boat... and the tide was very strong and so I was holding on to it (the boat), because we were getting in another boat to go to the beach... All of a sudden I looked up and Jason's penis was there and he was urinating on my face, and I thought it was so funny that somebody would pee on someone's face that I was laughing so hard, I couldn't swim away... so I was trapped.
"I can take one for the team. If somebody needs to get urinated on I am happy to do that... Who cares? You're in the ocean... That's like a human toilet anyway... I can deal with it. I don't have a problem with urine.
"To me it's funny that someone could be that rude to another person, so that made me really happy."

This Is Where I Leave You doesn’t get a lot right about grief, marriage, love, relationships, parenthood, infidelity, masculinity, depression, alcoholism, human reproduction, homosexuality, Oedipal complexes, Judaism, sibling rivalry, marijuana use, brain injuries, ice skating, or how human beings speak to one another. But, you know, it’s cute.
Though they’re given little more to do than alternate weepy existential soliloquys with jokes about masturbation (there are a lot of jokes about masturbation in this movie, or at least a lot more jokes about masturbation than most movies targeted to my mother’s demographic seem to have), the Altman siblings are hardly a chore to watch as they banter and bicker their way through a weeklong mourning ritual (and neatly packaged “side problems”) following the death of their father.
As Judd (wife cheated on him) Jason Bateman is essentially fine. As lone sister Wendy (husband’s a douche/old lover right across the street), Tina Fey is more than not inviting. As youngest brother Phillip (can’t get his act together), Adam Driver is a cast standout. Corey Stoll, you might have heard, is also in this movie as oldest child Paul (can’t conceive a child). But just barely, showing up every so often for the sole purpose of reminding everyone just how little these would-be siblings look like each other.
Warner Bros via Everett Collection
A few sweet moments are managed — more often than not involving the dynamic Driver and one of his disapproving elders — though never impressively, settling predominantly for Vanilla Sky-inspired maxims and scenes of contemplative driving. A few good jokes land — again, usually via Driver — though never uproariously. And with takeaway messages peaking at innocuous, there’s really nothing to be gained from a viewing of Shawn Levy’s dramedy adaptation.
But, somehow — thanks to the good graces of Fey’s aptitude for sisterly sardonicism and Driver’s animalistic likability — it manages a competent dose of cute. Sweet. Nice. This Is Where I Leave You has nothing — or close to it — to offer, but it’s hardly a joyless ride.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has recreated an iconic moment from the Pride And Prejudice TV series by showing off his toned torso to raise money for charity.
The Sherlock star is shown standing in a lake while wearing a white, unbuttoned shirt in an imitation of Colin Firth's famous scene in the 1995 TV mini-series. The image forms part of an exhibition of snaps by Jason Bell in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Other photographs in the display feature stars including Kate Winslet, Liam Neeson, Charlie Hunnam and Jerry Hall. The exhibition is taking place at London's La Galleria until Saturday (20Sep14) and is raising money for the charity's Give Up Clothes For Good appeal, which is sponsored by British discount chain TK Maxx.
Action man Jason Statham thrilled fans in New York last week (ends15Aug14) by competing in a TV hamster ball race. The Brit took on TV host Jimmy Fallon in The Tonight Show's first ever ball sprint at Rockefeller Center.
The two men had to clamber into human-size plastic balls, race to the end of the plaza, around the U.S. show's dancing panda mascot and then roll back to a red ring to win.
The former Olympic diver proved to be too athletic for the TV star and easily won the race.
Statham celebrated by rolling over a spread-eagled Fallon.
Shailene Woodley's films The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent and boyband One Direction dominated the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (10Aug14), each earning a slew of top honours.

You do you. I'm gonna do me."

Pretty Little Liars was the main winner in the TV section, while it was also a big night for singer/actress Selena Gomez, who picked up the Ultimate Choice accolade for her career achievements. During her acceptance speech, Justin Bieber's on/off girlfriend gave a special shout-out to her fans for their unconditional support through the good times and the bad, saying, "I have to be honest, especially this month, I cannot thank you guys (enough), because you remind me, amidst all the stuff that we deal with personally, you remind me of what's important. And that's giving, and loving, and caring about each other. You guys make me better." The 22 year old also dedicated the award to her mother for being "the greatest human being in the world".

Love or hate Twitter, you can't deny that celebrity parody accounts are it's best creation. There are thousands of accounts out there, and most of them suck, but there are some precious gems. Believe us when we say, the really funny Drake parodies are so worth wading through endless #DrakesTheTypeOfGuy accounts.
George R. R. Martin - @GRRM
Until recently, the Game Of Thrones author was not verified on Twitter. Some speculated that these cryptic tweets could only be the work of the real GRRM, but it was just a clever ruse.
Live every day like it's your last. You never know if I'll decide to kill you off. #GeorgeWisdom

Mark Zuckerberg - @notzuckerberg
Fake Zuckerberg is here to give us the honest truth: we’re all pathetically addicted to Facebook. Thanks Zuckerberg for hooking us in, and thank you even more fake Zuckerberg for helping us laugh at it.
You're soon going to have to download our Messenger app to write Facebook messages. And you'll need a third app if you want to send them.
— Not Mark Zuckerberg (@notzuckerberg) July 29, 2014
I apologize that Facebook went down for thirty minutes this morning and that all of you were forced to spend that half hour meaningfully.

Taylor Swift - @feministtswift
This is basically a Twitter account combining Feminism and Taylor Swift lyrics in the best possible way.
I don't know about you / So I won't assume your experience as a woman / But I'm feeling 22
— FeministTaylorSwift (@feministtswift) January 16, 2014

Bill Nye - @yaboybillnye
If you’re looking for someone to drop some knowledge on you, then you better hit up Ya Boy Bill Nye. If anyone on the planet deserves a worthy Twitter parody account, it’s Bill Nye The Science Guy.

Lord Voldemort - @Lord_Voldemort7
Even the Dark Lord is on Twitter. Okay, so maybe Voldemort isn’t real, but he’s basically one of the biggest baddies there is, so that makes him a celebrity. Which means, obviously, he’s got the best Twitter parody account of the bunch.
It's July 31st. For some reason that date seems familiar....

Drake - @StuffDrakeDoes
Drake fans get a little insight on Drake's day-to-day life with this Twitter account. Now we know what this soulful artist really thinks (and feels) when asked the tough questions.
Airport security. "Any hazardous materials, sir?" Drake smiles to himself, and shakes his head. "The dagger in my heart," he thinks.
— Stuff Drake Does (@StuffDrakeDoes) August 1, 2014
Drake hands over his passport at the terminal. "Destination, sir?" Drake shakes his head. "Somewhere else," he whispers.
— Stuff Drake Does (@StuffDrakeDoes) July 17, 2014
Betty White - @BettyFckinWhite
As we expect Betty White is in real life, her parody account is up to date on all of Hollywood’s latest drama. With a decent amount of Beverly Hills, 90210 tied in.
If Jay-Z and Beyoncé divorce that'll make it an even 100 problems then.

About 90% of these tweets are probably NSFW, which makes them all Clinton approved.

The Queen of England - @Queen_UK
If you’re going to make a parody account for the world’s most powerful woman, this is how you do it.

Chuck Norris - @chuck_facts
So we're not 100% sure this isn’t just Chuck Norris parodying himself, because no one makes fun of Chuck Norris but Chuck Norris.
Chuck Norris can divide by zero.
