2018 VMAs Will Have No Host
The VMAs are going stag this year, with no host set to lead the 2018 MTV awards show, a spokesperson for the network tells TheWrap.

“This year we opted for a tighter show,” VMAs executive producer Bruce Gillmer told Bustle Friday. “We want to let the music do the talking a little bit more. We love having a host, if it’s somebody that is pin-point and dead-on for what we’re looking for.”

“We’re just as happy [not having a host], and by the way, the show is just as vibrant, just as successful with or without. So this year, we’re happy that we have all the music that we have. The music will speak for itself.”

This is not the first time in the show’s nearly 35 year history that the VMAs have been host-less.

The Hostiles actress says that, as just a 21-year-old actress, she refused and eventually won the producers' respect as a result. The interview appeared in an "Audible Session" to promote an audiobook of Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility that Pike narrated.

“My first audition was for a Bond film and I remember them saying I was to drop my dress and appear in my underwear,...

Every Inmate Who Has Left Litchfield on Orange Is the New Black

  • Popsugar
Warning: spoilers ahead for season six!

For many of the inmates on Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, things only seem to go from bad to worse. In fact, the newest season of the prison-based dramedy sees multiple inmates gain additional years on their sentences. Taystee, in particular, is being punished for a crime she didn't commit.

Even prison release doesn't necessarily bring freedom for the Litchfield inmates. After what could have been a successful escape, Pennsatucky turns herself in, deciding she actually wants to finish her original sentence instead of running from the law. And Blanca's early release ends in her being led to an Ice bus, in a truly heartbreaking turn of events.

Still, there are some inmates who've left Litchfield and are now in the outside world, for better or worse. Aleida, for example, is trying to make ends meet to get her children back by any means necessary.

A Commercial For The Nun Was So Damn Scary That YouTube Banned It From Their Site
If you found yourself suffering from nightmares after watching the trailer for The Nun, then consider yourself lucky you didn't encounter a recent YouTube ad for the upcoming horror film.

The footage was only six seconds long, but faked viewers out by beginning the clip with a volume control icon, and then flashing the image of the film's titular demonic Nun - in other words, one hell of a jump scare. After a YouTube user warned others to "look away and/or turn down the volume if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares" on Twitter, the video site banned the "violent and shocking" clip because it violated their policy.

Appreciate you bringing this to our attention! This ad violates our shocking content policy and it's no longer running as an ad. More info here: https://t.co/dOUocjUevh

I Rarely Identify With Asians on Screen, but Here's Why Crazy Rich Asians Is So Important

I Rarely Identify With Asians on Screen, but Here's Why Crazy Rich Asians Is So Important
Lately, I've been telling my Asian friends that I'm going to see Crazy Rich Asians for the representation. I say it wryly, but there's a kernel of sincerity in what I'm saying.

I should start out by saying that Hollywood's numbers do make me emotional - mostly frustrated with the past and excited about the future. And before you ask, I'm at best mediocre at math. But the statistics are astounding, obvious to anyone who looks at them. Crazy Rich Asians is the first major American studio project to feature a predominantly Asian cast in 25 years, following the footsteps of 1993's The Joy Luck Club. Here's another crazy showbiz data point: in 2016, three percent of film roles went to Asian actors, while 78 percent went to white actors. As someone who grew up in a predominantly Asian and Latino neighborhood, the demographics of my community looked like those numbers - but reversed.

Mariah Carey Saw a Shark and Was Not Happy About It

Mariah Carey Saw a Shark and Was Not Happy About It
There are two things that Mariah Carey thinks don't belong together: a shark and her yacht. The singer posted a video on Instagram that shows her reaction to a shark swimming near her boat in the perfectly blue water. Carey, who was wearing a black wet suit with green lining, spoke to the camera about how unhappy she was with the shark's presence. "This is not okay," she said. "I know this is a shark and I'm not supposed to be scared, but I'm scared!"  While walking away from the camera, she laughed and exclaimed, "I'm upset!" She did not, however, break into song and dance while quoting Drake. Off camera, one of her kids asks why she's upset. While the...

Alyssa Milano Stands by Netflix's Insatiable: "These Issues Are Better in the Open"

  • Popsugar
Netflix's new series Insatiable has been under fire since the release of the show's trailer a few weeks ago. The "coming of rage story" sees slender Disney actress Debby Ryan slipping into a fat suit in the first episode to play Patty, an overweight teenager whose classmates ridicule her weight and appearance. When Patty loses the weight as a result of having her jaw wired shut (after she's punched by a homeless man trying to steal her candy bar . . . ), she decides to get revenge on everyone who's done her wrong. The black comedy has been met with backlash for several reasons but is largely drawing criticism for the fat-shaming premise the series is built on.

Charmed alum Alyssa Milano stars in the series as the social-climbing wife of a beauty pageant coach and has spoken out about the controversy a few times. Amid the first wave of negative reactions to the trailer,

In a shocking twist, both Sean and James are also musicians.

Earlier this year, Paul honored John at a March For Our Lives protest in New York City. Walking near the The Dakota, where John was killed in 1980, Paul told CNN, "One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it's important to me.

Crazy Rich Asians is filled with a star-studded cast, and Harry Shum Jr. is no exception.

Warning: spoilers for Crazy Rich Asians ahead.

Who Is Charlie Wu?

Charlie is Astrid's former love and ex-fiancé in the book trilogy.
