this was a classy response


If you were a 14-year-old boy again, right now, which [Glee guy] would you have as the wallpaper on your iPhone?
I’d probably have Chris Colfer, because I think he’s so brave on the show, and the things he’s doing are setting such a great example for young people, gay or straight, in terms of educating them and putting it out there. And in real life, he’s such an amazing person. He’s handling his fame and his success and his responsibility in such a classy way. I really admire him.

moon-kiddo  asked:

Some classy books recommendations?

The question is, what do you mean by classy? I went with sort of ‘elegant vibe’ books but I might be very far from what you meant:

  1. Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s 
  2. Raymond Chandler’s Playback
  3. Agatha Christie’s The Mystery of the Blue Train, Murder at the Vicarage, Sleepy Hollow or The Moving Finger (or most of her works, I love Agatha Christie)

If you meant classy as in Fine Literature or ‘classical’ faves here are some I love:

  1. Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina
  2. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (but also his short stories, I love Fitzgerald’s short stories)
  3. E. M. Forster’s Howard’s End
  4. Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice (one of my favourite books in the world. Everyone has to read it. It’s just perfect.)

Or maybe you meant something else entirely? Like generally books I’d rec? 

Gabrielle Union Calls Out Michael Keaton's 'Non-Apology' for 'Hidden Fences' Blunder at Golden Globe Awards

Gabrielle Union has addressed the Fences/Hidden Figures controversy at the Golden Globe Awards, calling out Michael Keaton for not apologizing for his blunder.

While announcing Octavia Spencer as a Best Supporting Actress nominee for the film Hidden Figures on Sunday, Keaton accidentally referred to the movie as “Hidden Fences,” seemingly thinking of Fences, another film with a primarily African-American cast.

Earlier in the day, NBC’s Jenna Bush Hager made the same error while interviewing musician Pharrell Williams on the red carpet.

“I hate to say someone, Jenna Bush, purposely marginalized movies that were centered in blackness and black excellence, but I think subconsciously they’re on a level where some people just lump all movies about people of color in one group, movies about women in one group,” Union said during her appearance on Tuesday’s episode of The View. “What that does is diminishes and marginalizes the excellent film and work.”

Hager has since apologized for the gaffe, with Williams publicly easing her tension over the flub.

“Don’t worry @JennaBushHager!” he tweeted. “Everyone makes mistakes. Hidden Fences does sound like an intriguing movie though. Just saying…”

While Keaton reportedly told TMZ, “I’m sorry, I apologize. I screwed it up,” after the Golden Globes, he has made no official public statement about the blunder and Union called him out for his “non-apology.”

“I think their apologies said a lot about what their intentions were,” said the 44-year-old Being Mary Jane star. “Jenna Bush’s apology, which was widely accepted by the cast of Hidden Figures, and then Michael Keaton’s non-apology spoke volumes and no one has accepted that apology.”

EXCLUSIVE: 'Moonlight' Cast Has Classy Response to Michael Keaton and Jenna Bush Hager's 'Hidden Fences' Gaffe

ET caught up with the cast of Moonlight just moments after the film won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama on Sunday, but it was another movie that was on their minds.

Hidden Figures was mispronounced twice at the awards show – once by NBC News correspondent Jenna Bush Hager on the red carpet and again by presenter Michael Keaton on the Golden Globes stage, who both mistakenly called the movie “Hidden Fences.”

“We don’t all look alike,” Mahershala Ali joked with ET’s Kevin Frazier, insinuating that people may have been confusing Hidden Figures with Fences.

“Shout-out to just these movies being made,” said Janelle Monae, who stars in both Moonlight and Hidden Figures. “I think Fences was an incredible film. Hidden Figures is an incredible film. It’s a story about true American heroes. These women are African-American mathematicians, and got our first American astronauts into space, and they will be hidden no more, so I’m happy for inclusion in Hollywood.”

It didn’t take long for #HiddenFences to become a trending topic on Twitter, with fans and celebrities alike contributing to the hashtag.

“You know who stars in #HiddenFences … Garcelle Ashanti Brandy Sanaa Bring It On Union,” Gabrielle Union quipped, expressing her disappointment.

On Monday morning, Hager fought back tears on Today as she apologized for her snafu, which occurred during an interview with Pharrell Williams, one of the producers on Hidden Figures.

“I’ve interviewed casts from both of the movies, and if I offended people, I am deeply sorry,” she said. “It was a mistake, because y'all know I am not perfect. I am authentic, but a human. And what I didn’t want to do is make anybody feel lesser than who they are.”

Backstage on Sunday, Monae quickly shook off the flubs. Moonlight marked her big screen debut, and she dished to ET about how comfortable the cast made her on set.

“It felt like family,” she said. “I was nervous as hell. It was my first film. I studied acting and I was a theatre kid, but coming and filming … I was a little nervous. I just remember [Ali] pulling me to the side and just being like, 'Listen, there’s no such thing as a mistake. As long as you’re leading with honesty, truthfulness, you are on the right path and every decision is the right path.’ So that helped. It helped us have that confidence and just excitement to come in every day.”

Writer and director Barry Jenkins admitted he’s just happy people came to see his work.

“It was just affirmation of 'You know what? I can do this,’” Jenkins said. “And when I do it in a way that’s very truthful and authentic and these folks come on board and do it with me, we can do whatever is in our hearts, and somebody is going to receive it.”

That performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden was absolutely incredible. The vocals, the dancing, everything. Before the show I was worried about James asking Perrie about Zayn, but he did it in a respectful and classy way, and their responses were perfect. 

They all looked great and they all seem extremely happy, which is awesome. I’m so happy for and proud of these girls. <3
