Stars including Kate Moss, Courtney Love and Bobby Gillespie have all donned Pussy Riot's signature masks to film a protest video in support of the gay community in Russia. The project in support of Amnesty International features a collection of short films in which a celebrity participant is shown wearing a black balaclava, in the style of the Russian punk stars. At the end of the footage, they pull the mask from their face to reveal their identity.
Moss, Love and Gillespie all filmed clips, along with actor Colton Haynes, models Liberty Ross and Erin O'Connor, and members of the fashion industry including milliner Philip Treacy and designer Gareth Pugh, who helped put the project together with celebrity snapper Nick Knight.
A statement about the project reads, "Pugh and Amnesty International (have joined the) fight against the prejudice and violence directed towards the LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) community in Russia. Pugh and longtime collaborator Nick Knight... asked respected figures from across the fashion community... to demonstrate their opposition to homophobia by participating in striking 20-second short videos."
Russian officials have come under fire in recent months over the country's stance on gay rights and members of all-female rock collective Pussy Riot have been vocal opponents of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Teen Wolf fans might still be reeling from the penultimate season three episode that was impactful enough to keep the #RIPAllison hashtag trending on Twitter for more than 12 hours. Now that the finale has aired, it might be time to take a look at the major problem the show has when it comes to character death — specifically, which characters die and which only come close to knocking on death’s door.
Let’s play a little game (akin to those played on Wolf Watch)! Peter Hale, Deucalion, Gerard Argent, Isaac Lahey, Jackson Whittemore, and Ethan; what do these characters have in common? They’re all male, they’re all white, and they’re all still alive — despite some of them contracting life-threatening diseases or actually dying.
Next group! Victoria Argent, Allison Argent, Jennifer Blake, Erica Reyes, Vernon Boyd, and Kali; what do these characters have in common? They’re either not male or not white and they’re all dead!
For many fans, the most recent death of Allison has been a serious point of contention and, for a few, the last straw. On a show that has always been proud of its female heroes — the next generation of Buffy Summers — killing Allison seemed like a slap in the face to the Teen Wolf’s female fans. (Yes, we know Crystal Reed decided to leave the show, but so did Colton Haynes and his character wasn’t killed.)
The cast of characters on Teen Wolf is seriously skewed in favor of men, which works for eye candy, but offers little in the way of female representation for the majority of the show’s fans. If the reaction from fans is any indication, they did not take kindly to losing one of their beloved female heroes.
However, perhaps the writers are taking note of the representation problem on the show. The Teen Wolf season three finale may have attempted to right the wrong: Kate Argent was resurrected from the grave (seriously, did she dig herself out, or what body did the Argents bury in season two?) and Aiden fell at the hand of an Oni.
It may not be a complete reversal of the male and female character scales on Teen Wolf, but the finale showcased a step in the right direction. Maybe the fans that have taken issue with the character deaths will be able to look past the politics and simply enjoy the show again. Here’s hoping!
For weeks now, the cast and crew of MTVs Teen Wolf have been warning audiences that a major character death would happen before the end of the third season. Although the show has never shied away from killing off characters — except for Jackson, who merely moved to London when Colton Haynes left the show — this one could be the last straw for fans.
In November, Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis hinted that a core character would die in the second half of the third season: “Prepare to lose someone,” he said. “We will possibly be changing our main title sequence, so not everyone’s going to make it out of this season alive.”
For those of us who are still reeling from the traumatic deaths of Erica (Gage Golightly) and Boyd (Sinqua Walls) in 3A, this was particularly harsh.
So who could it be? If Davis is telling the truth and it’s someone in the main title sequence, then it could be Scott, Allison, Stiles, Derek, or Lydia — all of whom have been on Teen Wolf since the very first episode. If Davis is lying (a highly likely possibility) the victim could be Isaac, Danny, or one of the adults: Melissa McCall, Chris Argent, or Sheriff Stilinski. Any of these would tear out our hearts.
Since Teen Wolf is character driven — they keep the show grounded in reality while their lives are inundated with the supernatural — it’s hard to imagine the series without any of these characters. Then there’s the worry that the death won’t be given its due. If Teen Wolf kills off one of the main characters and the show does a poor job of it (like Erica in 3A) that could make the death even more heartbreaking... and infuriating.
We don’t know about you, but we’re very, very wary of the third season finale.
A year never looked quite as good as 2014 in the new calendar from Reflect it Back, a project for social good. Tyler Posey and Colton Haynes rounded up some of their Teen Wolf buddies as well as some other young Hollywood stars in order to create MIRROR: A Calendar for Social Good. The calendar, shot by photographer Doug Inglish, features the abs of Posey and Haynes as well as their werewolf pals Tyler Hoechlin, Max Carver, and Charlie Carver. Parker Young of Suburgatory, Chris Zylka of Twisted, and Kendrick Sampson recently on The Vampire Diaries joined the Teen Wolf guys in posing for the calendar.
An information video on the Reflect it Back site features a few of the stars talking about the project — they wanted to use their talents to give something back to the world. Attractive and philanthropic? What more could you ask for in a dream guy (or guys)? There are also plenty of clips from behind the scenes of the photo shoot, which seems like it would have been a blast.
For those wondering, the calendar costs $24.99 (before shipping and taxes) and the proceeds will benefit several charities including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Check out the hashtag #ReflectitBack to get in on the conversation and see some more behind the scenes photos of the calendar’s stars.
Bruno Mars is celebrating after clinching the the Mtv Europe Music Awards ceremony's first prize after his Locked Out Of Heaven hit earned him the Best Song trophy. The American pop star beat off competition from Daft Punk (Get Lucky), Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Thrift Shop), Rihanna (Diamonds) and Robin Thicke (Blurred Lines) to take home the trophy, which was presented by Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes and Game Of Thrones star Candice van Houten.
Mars thanked his fans and manager in his acceptance speech and then revealed the win was extra special because his father had flown in to Amsterdam, Holland for the awards ceremony.
He said, "Listen y'all (you all) this song means so much to me... Thank you guys so much... I want to thank Atlantic records, I want to thank my manager. I got my pops here tonight, poppa Mars is in the building... Amsterdam thank you!"
Mars is also nominated for the Best Male award.
Other early winners include Katy Perry, who was named Best Female, Eminem (Best Hip Hop Award) and 30 Seconds to Mars (Best Alternative Act Award).
Miley Cyrus kicked off the ceremony with a space-themed performance of We Can't Stop, spanking a leather-clad little person and groping her breast, while Robin Thicke was joined by Iggy Azalea for a performance of his tracks Blurred Lines and Feel Good, and prizewinner Perry performed new track Unconditionally.
One of the best things about MTV’s Teen Wolf is the social media. They’ve been able to interact with the fans on a level that few other television shows have been able to achieve. The Teen Wolf Tumblr can talk about “feels” and “shipping” like any seasoned fan. It felt like love at first fanfiction. (Teen Wolf even held a fanfiction contest, proving that it's not like other shows, it's a cool show.) However, fans grow and change with the show and it seemed like Teen Wolf social media was stuck in the honeymoon stage.
As the first half of Teen Wolf’s third season aired, fans began to notice some major problems with the show. Teen Wolf was killing off a lot of ladies and people of color — but Colton Haynes, who left the show to join the CW’s Arrow, miraculously lived. A series that fans loved for being diverse and progressive was killing off all the characters that made it such.
Then Teen Wolf’s social media added salt to the wounds with their video attempt to persuade fans to vote for the show in TV Guide’s Fan Favorites contest. In the video, two actors from Teen Wolf threatened to kill Danny if the show doesn’t win. Not Danny! He’s the only LGBT character left! Fans were justifiably angry.
However, the leader of Teen Wolf’s social media team recently took to Tumblr to apologize for his crass joke about Danny, and the #KillDanny hashtag that accompanied it. Hopefully this will bring an end to the first fight of the relationship between Teen Wolf and its fans. (Seriously, we don’t like it when you guys fight.)

Model-turned-actor Colton Haynes made millions of audiences swoon with his chiseled features and bad boy charm. After launching his modeling career by appearing in advertising campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch and Ralph Lauren, Haynes turned his attention to onscreen acting work. He guest-starred on several hit primetime series before landing a regular role on "The Gates" (ABC, 2010), a thrilling drama about an upscale community inhabited by supernatural entities. Haynes was perfectly cast as an athletic and mysterious young man who transformed into a werewolf. Even though the series was cancelled after only one season, it launched Haynes' career as a Hollywood latest "It" boy. He quickly bounced back by joining the cast of "Teen Wolf," MTV's remake of the 1985 classic film starring Michael J. Fox. The actor's role called for him to be a confidante to the main character, a former geek-turned-werewolf, which showcased Haynes' onscreen versatility and established him as an emerging talent with a promising career.
