Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa take bloody bus ride in ‘Prisoner’ video



Looks like a bloody freeing trip to us.

Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa embark on a wild, blood-splattered, spider-infested bus trip with a bunch of gal pals in the music video for their new collaboration “Prisoner.” In the video, which the dynamic duo dropped via social media, they navigate the frenetic freeway of love, singing, “You keep making it harder to stay / But I still can’t run away / I gotta know why can’t you, why can’t you just let me go?”

The video includes an eye-popping dedication toward the end that reads, “IN LOVING MEMORY OF ALL MY EXES” and is punctuated by the words “EAT S–T.” It then closes with a clip of drag legend Divine uttering a line from John Waters’ trash-tastic 1974 film “Female Trouble”: “I’m a free woman now and my life is just ready to begin.”

We get the message, ladies!

Cyrus, 27, has been hyping tracks from her album “Plastic Hearts,” out Nov. 27, which will feature collabs with Lipa, 25, and rock legends Joan Jett and Billy Idol. Cyrus has been duet-crazed of late: Last month Cyrus did a holiday tune, “Christmas Is,” with her godmother, Dolly Parton, and earlier this month she teamed up with Stevie Nicks for “Edge of Midnight (Midnight Sky Remix).”

Karlie Kloss Confirmed She’s Pregnant With A Video


News of Karlie Kloss being pregnant bubbled up late last month, but it wasn’t until today that the model officially confirmed it herself.

Karlie gave the first look at her baby bump with a video on Instagram.

“Good morning baby ♥️,” Karlie wrote in the caption, adding in the video, “Hello baby,” as she zoomed in on her growing stomach.


This will be the first child for Karlie and her husband Josh Kushner (as in Jared Kushner’s brother).

A little more than a couple weeks ago, a source close to the couple told People that “Karlie is overjoyed to be expecting her first child in 2021. She will be the most amazing mother.”

While Karlie is only officially announcing the news herself now, she was posting what some fans took as hints that she’s pregnant. There was this photo with a strategically positioned purse:

And this video of her enjoying a cozy nap:

Congrats to the mama to be!

Video Games to Relax – The New York Times


Take a deep breath. Hold it for five seconds. Exhale. Breathe in for three seconds. Repeat. How does that feel? A little better? Good. We’re living in stressful times, and any moment of calm is welcome.

Video games don’t have a reputation for offering tranquility. People tend to think of them as more likely to give a stress-addled adult a headache than lead them into a zen state of relaxation. But reputations can be deceiving. When developers simplify the controls, and weave in beautiful music and relaxing visuals, video games can open up spaces for peace and focus, like silent retreats on a screen. They can rest your mind by letting you occupy a new world and reshaping the way you think.

Although the neuroscience of video gaming is not conclusive, there may be evidence that the benefits are not (pardon the phrase) just in your head. Recently, a group of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California, Irvine developed Tenacity, a game with the goal of increasing mindfulness. In a small study published in the journal Nature last December, they found that, over the course of several weeks, the game could subtly increase connectivity between several brain regions associated with attention.

Fortunately, you don’t need an expensive console to play. Here are a few to try, all available as smartphone apps for $5 or less.

How about a getaway? Fleeing the tumult of the city and starting a new life in a small town isn’t the sort of thing that often works out the way you’d expect it to in real life. But Stardew Valley gets it just right. You begin as a character of your own design, moving to the valley to take over your late grandfather’s overgrown homestead. You find an idyllic small town in a patch of nature that feels as if it comes out of a storybook: wholesome, magical. The game is open-ended; you can farm by yourself or with your friends or, in the course of gameplay, take down the villain, a superstore-hawking mega-corporation. That last one may not sound so relaxing, but it all adds up to a fantasy of escape from the stress of postmodern life, a cottage-core paradise.

But maybe that sounds too much like work. In that case, try Prune. The title says it all: With a touch here, a touch there, you gently nudge a tree to flourish. This is a minimal, painterly game, an exercise in contemplating the beauty of nature itself. According to its App Store page, it is a “love letter to trees,” and it has all the joy and warmth you would expect of the best love letters.

This is a simple puzzle game about objects, in their most abstract and aesthetically appealing sense: a lantern, a music box, a watch, a pocketbook. Turn it, prod it, see what happens. The right movement causes each object to blossom like a flower, twisting and transforming into something else. It’s a dance, in color and shape, through the world of stuff. In the process, the game becomes a peaceful place to just think lovingly about the world around you. Isn’t that lamp in the corner pretty? Did you ever notice all the contours that can hold the light in that briefcase, that jar?

A hand-painted puzzle game, Gorogoa is the result of years of work by Jason Roberts, a software engineer who quit his job in his 40s to devote himself to creating this game. And the effort shows. Every frame is painstakingly detailed; the landscapes, bedrooms and skies in the game, which takes the form of a surreal journey through the tumult of the 20th century, reveal themselves in bits and pieces. This is a game about learning to see well. Picking out the fine details helps you solve puzzles, and when you solve puzzles, the perspective shifts, and you begin to understand how limited your view of the world really is — a nice lesson in humility.

This game plays a bit differently from the others on this list. It’s a golfing game set in the most inhospitable golfing environment imaginable: a vast, Ozymandias-like desert. Golf balls do not thrive in sand, and the game takes that seriously. Each putt is a chance for surprise and struggle, and to make progress you will have to learn a whole new world of ball physics. So why is this game on the list? Because, look: there’s no one else here. There’s just you, and that ball, and one hole after another, and the beauty of the desert in the twilight. Everything drowned in orange and red. The score is only a formality. And all you’ll find out in the desert is yourself.

If you are the right age, you might remember the Tamagotchi craze, those little companion monsters you took care of, a cute pet you kept in your pocket. Mountain is the outsider art version of that. Your digital companion is, as the name implies, a mountain. You watch it grow, take shape, accumulate things and occasionally interact with you. Yes, interact: Every now and then, it tells you its odd, mountain thoughts. Developed by David O’Reilly, who designed the digital interfaces the characters interact with in the movie Her, this is a game best left running in the background. Open it up periodically for a quick check-up on geology in progress.

Billie Eilish Fans Think “Therefore I Am” Video Is a Message to Haters


Billie Eilish doesn’t have time for haters. She’s too busy releasing new music.

The 18-year-old artist dropped her song “Therefore I Am” on Thursday, Nov. 12, and fans couldn’t help but wonder if she was sending a subtle message to her trolls. 

In the corresponding music video, Eilish could be seen running throughout an empty mall and stopping at a number of fast-food places, including Wetzel’s Pretzels, Chipotle, Hot Dog on a Stick and a donuts and coffee shop. 

As fans may recall, the “bad guy” star was body-shamed last month after a photo of her wearing a spaghetti-strap top and shorts, versus her typical (as she’s put it) “baggy clothes,” spread online. Many followers were quick to come to Eilish’s defense, and the five-time Grammy winner posted a video by Chizi Duru about “normalizing real bodies.” This wasn’t the first time Eilish had been targeted, either. In fact, she’d addressed her critics several times before, including in her NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY video.

Carrie Ann Inaba Slams ‘Bullies’ After ‘DWTS’ Backlash: Video


Firing back. Carrie Ann Inaba may be a tough judge on Dancing With the Stars, but she has no plans to change her ways, she revealed during the Tuesday, November 3, episode of The Talk.

“I still get bullied. Right about this time is when people start to bully me because of the way I judge people. I can’t believe it still happens as adults,” the Talk cohost, 52, explained following the Monday, November 2, episode, in which she received backlash on Twitter for her judging of Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev‘s jive. “I want to tell people who bully: It doesn’t make me change the way I judge. I’m not about to change because you try to bully me. It only makes me stand stronger in my convictions and what I believe in.”

Inaba, who has been a judge on the ABC competition series since its 2005 debut, went on to defend her experience.

“Just so you all know, for all of you trying to bully me about it, I judge the way I judge from my background,” the choreographer said. “That is my job to do it and I will always do it based on my own conscience, not because you’re trying to tell me what to do.”

During Monday’s episode, Chigvintsev, 38, and Bristowe, 35, were both visibly upset after receiving criticism from Inaba just one week after she gave them a low score of a 7.

“At this point, it starts being a little personal,” the Strictly Come Dancing alum, 38, told Entertainment Tonight about the judge’s comments. “I feel it’s definitely, maybe not a different standard, but I feel like it’s different expectations. I don’t know. I’m watching back the dance itself, it’s like, ‘Oh, you can kick sharper!’ Well, I can say that about everybody who dances on the show today. I don’t know. It’s really odd.”

The former Bachelorette, 35, admitted she was confused by Inaba’s remarks and invited the Hawaii native to come on her “Off the Vine” podcast to discuss them.

“It’s always reassuring to talk to other people and have them asking those same questions because we come back and we’re like, ‘Huh?’ We’re good at accepting constructive criticism. We’re like, ‘OK, great, now let’s apply it. Thank you for the wonderful feedback,’” the Dew Edit designer said. “With this one, it’s like, ‘Huh? OK?’”

Meanwhile, on social media, many fans were angry at Inaba’s score of a 25 out of 30. “Wow it’s almost as if Carrie Ann dislikes Kaitlyn as much as she disliked Hannah last season, for no reason,” one fan pointed out. Another added, “Seriously what the hell does Carrie Ann have against Kaitlyn?”

Fans also were quick to point out that Chigvintsev used to date Inaba. The pair met on the set of So You Think You Can Dance in 2006 and were in a relationship for two and a half years until their 2009 split.

“Carrie Ann and Artem used to date. Just saying,” one Twitter user wrote with a gif of a woman sipping tea. “Carrie Ann and Artem dated …. for 3 years I didn’t know … explains so much,” another added.

Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.

Pandemic Grandparenting, Beyond the Dreary Video Calls


As a veteran television journalist, Sally-Ann Roberts knows how to tame an unsteady landscape and will it into submission. She survived 40 years reporting and anchoring the news for WWL-TV in New Orleans, covering 10 races for mayor and in 2005, Hurricane Katrina, a storm that submerged four-fifths of the city in water and left her rebuilding her home for nearly two unforgiving years. But as far as grandparenting during the coronavirus pandemic, she says she’s met her match.

“I am not doing the job I should be doing as a grandparent,” she said.

“Before Covid, we’d have the five grandkids over for ‘Sunday Time,’ from the afternoon until after dark. I’d usually have time to take each one of them aside. Give them each undivided attention. Now, that’s ended. Now, that special time is rare. Now, when we get together, we can’t even sit at the same table.”

Ms. Roberts had a different kind of grandparenting in mind when she retired in 2018. Early on in the pandemic, she decided it would be safer for her and her family if she kept her distance. She reduced their visits from once a week, often more, to about once a month. Yet even when they do see each other, the need to wear masks and maintain physical distance has changed the quality of her interactions, she says, making conversations with her grandchildren more “transactional” and less meaningful. Conversations now with the oldest of her grandchildren, two boys, 5 and 12, center more on schedules and grades rather than deeper talks about faith and what she hopes for their future.

“They need me. Even if they don’t know it, they do,” Ms. Roberts said. “It’s important I let them know I see greatness in them,” she said.

Tashel Bordere, assistant professor of human development and family science at the University of Missouri and her wife, Dr. Kate Grossman, a pulmonologist, are raising their daughters, 14 and 3, in Columbia, Mo., hundreds of miles from their nearest set of parents. The last in-person visit their children had with any grandparent was in December.

“We invested heavily in plane tickets,” Dr. Bordere said of their pre-Covid-19 routine that included visiting or hosting her parents, who live in Louisiana, and her in-laws, who reside in New York. “We’d usually see one set of grandparents every other month.”

But Christmas 2019 ended up being their last face-to-face visit. Now it’s been 10 months since any part of the extended family has shared a meal, the couple canceling all vacations, including their usual spring and summer plans, because travel of any kind feels too risky. The latest AARP survey of grandparents, in 2019, suggests they’re not alone in making these kinds of decisions. More than “half of grandparents have at least one grandchild who lives more than 200 miles away,” the report found.

While some grandparents have been spending lots of time in the pandemic with their grandchildren, many of those who live at a distance are making do with video calls.

Dr. Bordere and Dr. Grossman say their daughters have replaced cuddles with their grandparents with far less satisfying virtual waves and kisses.

“We’re a diverse family. We’re a same-sex couple with children of color,” Dr. Bordere said. “Grandparents are essential for us because they give our children another set of people who reinforce their beauty and value. That’s harder to do on Zoom or FaceTime. The quality of our conversations has shifted,” she said, and although all of them have been trying, “the girls are missing out.”

Although many families are finding video calls dispiriting, child development experts urge parents and grandparents not to give up on them. Instead of stilted, office-style Zoom sessions, families can use digital connections in creative ways to foster more meaningful relationships, they say. Routine tasks, such as helping grandchildren with homework or listening to them sing or practice a musical instrument, have the capacity to build the most rewarding and enduring relationships.

“The way you get to a meaningful, deep relationship is by having a set of transactional relationships,” said Chuck Kalish, a cognitive and developmental psychologist and senior adviser for science at the Society for Research in Child Development. “The way a child will have a rich relationship with a grandparent is if that grandparent really is a resource in the child’s life.”

The key to heightening relationships right now is increasing the number of shared experiences grandparents and grandchildren have, experts say. There are a few simple ways to do this.

Grandparents have an opportunity to become part of their grandchild’s daily routine, even remotely. For older children, grandparents can be homework helpers and tutors. Dr. Arthur Lavin, a Cleveland pediatrician and chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics committee on psychosocial aspects of child and family health, has two granddaughters, one school age, who live in Hong Kong. “We see her lessons and we can comment on them. It’s actually strengthened our connection,” he said.

For younger children, AARP’s family and caregiving expert, Amy Goyer, suggests grandparents buy two copies of the same book, keeping one and mailing the other to their grandchild to read together over a video or phone call. “That could be Grandma’s job every night before the child goes to bed,” she suggested. “That establishes a routine. It’s their special thing. And it gives the parents a break.”

Grandparents can also strengthen their connections by bending to their grandchildren’s interests and allowing them to be their teachers. Remote online gaming is a perfect activity for this, Dr. Kalish said. “One of the things kids really like to do is feel super confident,” he said. “The fact they might be better at it than their grandparents, that can be super rewarding.” And the child who gets to play a game on a call with a grandparent — rather than being pulled away from a game when a grandparent calls — will probably see the call as a treat rather than a chore. “Grandparents have to be the grown-ups in this relationship,” Dr. Kalish said. “Kids are not going to come most of the way to meet the grandparents. The grandparents have to come most of the way to meet the kid.”

Grandparents may also pass along family history, culture and traditions via real-time cooking lessons, offering recipes and step-by-step instructions in their native language. “You could share your great-grandmother’s chocolate chip cookie recipe and agree to both make them and then eat them together on the phone,” offered Dr. Ken Ginsburg, director of programs at the Center for Parent and Teen Communication at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Ginsburg also suggests families ditch technology at times and fortify their bonds by sending letters. “It’s really important for children to know that adults think about them even when we’re not talking to them or present with them,” he said. Another upside of writing letters is that they can be saved, leaving open the possibility that grandchildren will reread them with new understanding and appreciation as they grow. Surprise packages also do the trick. “Everybody likes receiving packages,” Dr. Ginsburg said. “When you open it up, you’re literally reminded, someone was thinking about me.”

Parents may also encourage children to send art projects and drawings to grandparents.

These strategies may be worth keeping up even after the pandemic, because grandchildren and grandparents benefit from spending time together. In a special issue of the Journal of Contemporary Science in 2018, focusing on grandparents, researchers noted that “There is now a growing body of research that illustrates grandparent involvement is associated with improved mental health, improved resilience and pro-social behaviour in grandchildren.” Other research found that’s particularly important if their parents are divorced, separated or remarried. Likewise, the 2019 AARP survey found that grandparents who feel invested in the lives of their grandchildren enjoy better emotional and physical health.

To Ms. Roberts in New Orleans, this kind of purposeful relationship building feels urgent. “I’m losing time. I have fewer days ahead of me than I have behind me,” she said. “I need to make an impact.”

Florida Early Voting Starts To Panic Democrats (VIDEO)


Democrats are panicking due to Republicans catching up to their initial lead on early in-person voting.

A man on the street filmed himself saying, “Are you anxious and afraid right now over what might happen in the next few days? Good! You are a normal person having a completely normal reaction to what is completely f****d up. OK. Nothing in the past four years is f***ing normal. It’s not f****ing normal to have two hundred forty thousand people die. And then you’re told, no, that never really happened! What? Trust the plan. What? All right. If you’re feeling anxious, if you’re feeling stressed right now, congratulations. You are a normal human being, having a normal human reaction. All right. So get out and f***ing vote! Because none of this is f***ing normal!”

CNN analysts told viewers that Democrat operatives are concerned about ‘stopping the bleeding.’

Alisyn Camerota said, “Hey, David. I just wanna stick with you for a second because of Florida. So there is information that the early in-person vote in at least Miami Dade County. Which Hillary Clinton won handily, but lost the state, that the Republican turnout is far outpacing the Democratic turnout. And it is so concerning to the congresswoman, Frederica Wilson, who covers that region, that she says she has been trying to sound the alarm to the Biden campaign. She says that they haven’t been doing door to door canvassing because of the pandemic. They haven’t invested money in the people there on the ground who know how to turn out the vote.”

TRENDING: WATCH: Joe Biden Announces He Will Lead an Effective Strategy to Mobilize ‘Trunalimunumaprzure’

Camerota continued, “Here is her quote to Politico. “I screamed, hollered, I called. I lobbied from the top to the bottom. Wilson said of her efforts to turnout operations started in the community, including sending written proposals to Biden’s campaign and having virtual Zoom meetings with his advisers. She thinks they’re not listening to her.”

David said, “Well, I’m sure they’re looking at these early vote numbers from Florida. There is the one that struck my eyes that Miami Dade is much lower than the rest of the state in terms of a percentage of early voters coming out. And that is a place where he has to, Joe Biden has to mount a huge advantage going into Election Day. The other thing you notice, if you look deeply into these numbers, is that where the falloff is appears to be among African-American voters and that is a concern.”

President Trump and First Lady Melania visited their home state to outline a preview of their second term goals

First Lady Melania said, “Hello, Florida! It is wonderful to be here in our home state. Thank you for taking the time to be here and for supporting the administration. We love you, too. For those of you who are still deciding who to vote for on Tuesday, I hope that what I have to say will prove to you that a vote for President Trump is a vote for a better America.”

President Trump said, “We will end our reliance on China once and for all! It’s already started. We will hire more police, increase penalties for assaults on law enforcement, and we will ban deadly sanctuary cities. We will defend religious liberty, free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms, your Second Amendment will be defended. We will maintain America’s unrivaled military might. And we will ensure peace through strength. And I told you, we spent two and a half trillion, with a “T”, trillion dollars trillion on our military.”

President Trump continued, “We have the finest rockets, the finest missiles, the finest jets, F-35s. We have the finest tanks and submarines and ships all made in the USA. And our nuclear stockpile, we are in a position like no other country in the world. We’re the envy of every country, Russia, China, North Korea. No country in the world has what we have and just, a lot of religious people in this audience, pray to God that we never have to use it. And it’s more likely that we won’t have to use it now that we have it. But just hope that we never have to use it. We will end surprise medical billing require price transparency, lower drug prices even more. And we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions.”
