(Reuters) Supermodel Cara Delevingne who has been linked to celebs like Harry Styles and Michelle Rodriguez opened up, sort of, about her sexuality in an interview with The Telegraph about her Mulberry handbag designs. When the topic came up the 21-year-old stunner decided to address the issue. "On that topic, I think..." She says before pausing. "What do I think? I think people shouldn't be scared of that." The English born model added, "I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not. So I don't really care on that matter. People can say what they want, but I'm having a good time. I know what people are doing who are my age; I just think it would be a lie to pretend that I'm not having a good time." Delevingne also revealed that she’s more comfortable around women because … [Read more...] about Model Cara Delevingne addresses issue of her sexuality

Annie Proulx, best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “The Shipping News” and the short story “Brokeback Mountain,” has been named the recipient of the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction. The author will be presented with the award at the 2018 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 1. “E. Annie Proulx has given us monumental sagas and keen-eyed, skillfully wrought stories,” Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden said in a statement. “Throughout her writing, she succeeds in capturing the wild, woolly heart of America, from its screwball wit to its every last detail. She is an American original.” “This high honor came as a shock to me,” said Proulx, who lives in Port Townsend, Wash. “My writing has examined the lives of unimportant people — poor people plagued with bad luck, financial and personal troubles ... not the kind of characters to be graced with notice by the … [Read more...] about Annie Proulx wins Library of Congress Prize for American fiction

The Golden Globes are known for being random, for both clarifying in some respects the awards race by being the first major show (though the voting body has little overlap with those who vote for the Oscars) and for throwing a total wrench into it. Those Globes choices are supposed to be as unpredictable and silly as the boozed-up show itself! At least, historically speaking. So it’s alternately surprising and refreshing that there’s little to rage about Monday morning with the ultimate slate of nominees, which were led on the film side by The Shape of Water (7 nods), The Post (6), and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (6), and on the TV end by Big Little Lies (6 nods) and Feud: Bette and Joan (4). Oh, there’s still enough to be huffy about. But hardly on the level of Burlesque or The Tourist being a Best Picture nominee, and barely a “Who?” showing up in the TV races. (Those merit a reaction more like “interesting…” instead.) … [Read more...] about Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises: No Female Directors? Where’s ‘Wonder Woman’?
