Director John Carpenter to Make a New "Halloween" movie

I guess my nightmares about Michael Myers aren't over just yet.
Famed Halloween director John Carpenter took to Facebook to make the announcement saying:
So you say you want a Revolution?
 You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again?
Well so do I.

So here’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for:
David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.
David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away.
I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.
And you’ll get to see it in theaters on October 19th, 2018

It looks like the team from Eastbound and Down will be onboard....AND CARPENTER WILL DO THE MUSIC!? This is going to be epic. We all know that distinctive song in all of the Halloween movies when Michael is just around the corner.
I wonder how they will forward the plot? I hope it's better than Rob Zombie's 2007 remake of the film.
Here's to Halloween 2018! 

Listen to Katy Perry's New Song "Chained to the Rhythm"

A newly blonde Katy Perry has been promoting her new single for a little while now in the most unconventional way possible. On Thursday she teased the song's release was Friday February 10th, but her Katycats could get an early listen if they find a disco ball on a map  and plug their headphones into said ball to get a listen of her new song, Chained to the Rhythm ft Kip Marley (Bob's grandson!)

Justin Timberlake: Why He Left *NSYNC
On Super Bowl Sunday, we all were blessed with a little taste of Justin Timberlake giving us *NSYNC vibes in the commercial for Bai.
It seems like Timberlake took that vibe and ran with it in his interview with the Hollywood Reporter . In the article,  Justin Timberlake touches on a lot of topics. Music, fatherhood, his friendship with Jimmy Fallon and leaving *NSYNC (insert record scratch).
Yup, JT's finally talking about why he left the boy band back in the early 00's.
The article actually clears up the misconception that the band broke up..they actually did not.
Back in 2002, they announced a "hiatus" and basically haven't performed after that with the exception of the 2013 VMAs to honor JT.
 "We were on a stadium tour, and I just felt like the whole thing was too big," says Timberlake, explaining why he decided to bail. "It started as a fun snowball fight that was becoming an avalanche. And, also, I was growing out of it. I felt like I cared more about the music than some of the other people in the group. And I felt like I had other music I wanted to make and that I needed to follow my heart."

The boys are still cool though.
Just last year they all got together to celebrate JC Chasez's 40th birthday.

Britney Spears' Niece Maddie "Making Progress" After ATV Accident
Britney spears posted this message to her Instagram account to let the public know her niece is making progress.
On Sunday, 8 year old Maddie Aldridge was involved in a devastating ATV accident. Aldridge is the daughter of Spears' little sister, Jamie lynn.
The family released a statement and was featured on the People website,
“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, Feb. 7,” her hospital tells PEOPLE in a statement provided by a Spears family rep. “The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, Louisiana. Paramedics resuscitated her and she was airlifted to a local hospital. She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident.”

The statement continues: “Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident.”

In a police report obtained by People says, Aldridge was driving an ATV within view of her mom and her stepdad,  Jamie Watson, when she "took a hard right to avoid running over a nearby drainage ditch, causing the vehicle to "enter the pond on her parents property. The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their eyes. Within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV’s safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters.”

Glad to hear Maddie is on the mend.

Under Armour Brand Sponsors Speak Out on CEO's Trump Comments
On Tuesday the CEO of the athletic brand Under Armour called President Trump a real asset to the United States in an interview with CNBC.
Well, the brand's most famous representative, Stephen Curry, didn't agree.
Curry told the San Jose Mercury news,  I agree with that description. If you remove the 'et' from asset.
Plank says these comments were from a business perspective, but Curry wasn't having it.
I spent all day yesterday on the phone with countless people at Under Armour, countless people in Kevin Plank's camp, my team, trying to understand what was going on and where everybody stood on the issue.

However, Steph wasn't the only one who commented on the matter. The brand's sponsored celebs spoke out, one of them being The Rock.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson took to Instagram to announce his stance

I appreciate and welcome the feedback from people who disagree (and agree) with Kevin Plank's words on CNBC, but these are neither my words, nor my beliefs. His words were divisive and lacking in perspective. Inadvertently creating a situation where the personal political opinions of UA’s partners and its employees were overshadowed by the comments of its CEO. A good company is not solely defined by its CEO. A good company is not defined by the athlete or celebrity who partners with them. A good company is not a single person. A good company is a team, a group of brothers and sisters committed to working together each and every day to provide for their families and one another and the clients they serve. We don’t partner with a brand casually. I partner with brands I trust and with people who share my same values. That means a commitment to diversity, inclusion, community, open-mindedness and some serious hard work. But it doesn't mean that I or my team will always agree with the opinion of everyone who works there, including its executives. Great leaders inspire and galvanize the masses during turbulent times, they don't cause people to divide and disband. My responsibility here is not only to the global audience we serve, but also to the thousands of workers who pour blood, sweat, and tears into making Under Armour strong. A diverse group of hardworking men and women who possess integrity, respect and compassion for one another and the world they live in. Debate is healthy. But in a time of widespread disagreement, so is loyalty. I feel an obligation to stand with this diverse team, the American and global workers, who are the beating heart and soul of Under Armour and the reason I chose to partner with them. My commitment is as real as my sweat and callouses that thicken daily. #CommittedToThePeople

American ballerina and another bad ass, Misty Copeland took to the 'gram as well to give her statement.

I have always appreciated the great support and platform that Under Armour has given me to represent my community, gender, and career on the world stage. However, I strongly disagree with Kevin Plank's recent comments in support of Trump as recently reported. Those of you who have supported and followed my career know that the one topic I've never backed away from speaking openly about is the importance of diversity and inclusion. It is imperative to me that my partners and sponsors share this belief. I have spoken at length with Kevin privately about the matter, but as someone who takes my responsibility as a role model very seriously, it is important to me that he, and UA, take public action to clearly communicate and reflect our common values in order for us to effectively continue to work towards our shared goal of trying to motivate ALL people to be their best selves.

Under Armour released a statement on the matter:
At Under Armour, our culture has always been about optimism, teamwork, and unity.  We have engaged with both the prior and the current administrations in advocating on business issues that we believe are in the best interests of our consumers, teammates, and shareholders. Kevin Plank was recently invited at the request of the President of the United States, to join the American Manufacturing Council as part of a distinguished group of business leaders. He joined CEOs from companies such as Dow Chemical, Dell, Ford, GE and Tesla, among others to begin an important dialogue around creating jobs in America. We believe it is important for Under Armour to be a part of that discussion.

We have always been committed to developing innovative ways to support and invest in American jobs and manufacturing.  For years, Under Armour has had a long-term strategy for domestic manufacturing and we recently launched our first women’s collection made in our hometown of Baltimore, MD. We are incredibly proud of this important first step in the evolution of creating more jobs at home.

We engage in policy, not politics. We believe in advocating for fair trade, an inclusive immigration policy that welcomes the best and the brightest and those seeking opportunity in the great tradition of our country, and tax reform that drives hiring to help create new jobs globally, across America and in Baltimore.

We have teammates from different religions, races, nationalities, genders and sexual orientations; different ages, life experiences and opinions. This is the core of our company. At Under Armour, our diversity is our strength, and we will continue to advocate for policies that Protect Our House, our business, our team, and our community.
