    Jennifer Lopez turned up the heat on the set of her new video for "El Mismo Sol," a duet with Spanish singer-songwriter, Álvaro Soler. 


    The song is already a hit in Europe, and now Soler is teaming up with Lopez in hopes of finding the same success in the U.S. Luckily, a hot video just might do the trick.


    J.Lo definitely sizzled as she filmed, what looked like some racy scenes, on a merry-go-round in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood on Monday night. 





    Lopez's sexy moves were choreographed by her rumored on-again boyfriend Casper Smart, who was on set making sure she nailed every step.

    Everybody loves Sir Thomas Sean Connery -- women for his Scottish accent, twinkling eyes and, well everything else, and men are encouraged by his ability to age basically perfectly. 


    In a career that spans six decades, Connery has played everyone from charming con men to Robin Hood and Indiana Jones Senior. He was the first actor to play Bond on film, and turned down the roles of Morpheus in The Matrix and Gandalf in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy (presumably because he didn't understand the material). While his roles have varied wildly, Connery remains an international style icon, year after year.


    To celebrate his 85th birthday on Tuesday, Aug. 25, here are photos of "Big Tam" throughout the years.

    A very serious disease is affecting our nation's cable news anchors: an addiction to reporting non-stop on Donald Trump. Sure, it's fun to report on Trump every now and again. Everything's good in moderation! But for some people, normal coverage just isn’t enough. It’s gotten so bad that -- even in the face of issues like gun control and income inequality -- news anchors are pushing important topics to the back burner, just so they can report wall-to-wall on Trump's blowhard gimmicks.


    This video, written by Paul Gale and John Trowbridge, tells a story of an anchor who's ready to purge his soul and start the healing process.

    J.E.B. Stuart was a Confederate general and a slave owner, and Julianne Moore is just one of thousands of people who think his name should be removed from a Virginia high school. 


    Moore joined Academy Award-winning producer Bruce Cohen to launch a Change.org petition calling on the local school board change the name of  J.E.B. High School. Both stars once attended the Fairfax County, Virginia, school.


    The petition is proposing to rename the school Thurgood Marshall High School. Marshall was the lawyer and eventual Supreme Court justice who argued against segregation in public schools in the landmark 1954 Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education


    The school was named for Stuart when it was founded in 1959 to protest that ruling.


    Alumni who signed the petition say they've felt the need to apologize for their alma mater's name ever since:



    When we were at J.E.B. Stuart in the late ’70’s, the school symbol was Stuart riding a horse and waving the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag was at the center of our basketball court and on our athletic letter jackets and wasn’t removed until 2001 -- but the symbol of Stuart on a horse waving a flag (now solid blue) remains. No one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended and the history of racism it represents, as we and so many alumni of Stuart have felt the need to do our whole lives.



    The petition has received almost 30,000 signatures since its launch four weeks ago, and has since been promoted by the likes of Russell Simmons and the local NAACP chapter. 








    In a statement to ABC News, the Fairfax County School Board said they plan to review this request


    "We recognize that there are legitimate concerns of students, parents and communities in these schools and whether those names best reflect their community," the statement read. "We also recognize that there are historic, legacy, and financial concerns in making changes in the names of schools. Current and former students have initiated this dialogue and we will work with our communities to hear all sides of this discussion and work collaboratively to address this issue."


    Moore was not immediately available for further comment.

    Kanye West is getting another award to add to his collection. 


    On Sunday night, the 38-year-old rapper will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV VMAs. The award, which will be presented during the live broadcast, is the highest honor given out at the show. 


    MTV stated in a press release that West will receive the award "for his career spanning groundbreaking videos, legendary VMA performances, and continued impact on music, art, fashion, and culture." They also shared a promo video that offers a little glimpse of some of the artist's best videos over the years. 



    The rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian has become somewhat of a VMA legend over the years. From his first appearance onstage in 2004 to that time he didn't let Taylor Swift finish, West has no doubt been responsible for some of the show's most memorable moments. 


    But shock factor aside, West has the talent to back it up. He's also given some of the best performances in VMAs history (see: 2013's "Blood on the Leaves," 2010's "Runaway" or 2004's medly featuring none other than Chaka Khan).  


    West joins the already impressive list of past Vanguard recipients, including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Britney Spears and most recently, Beyonce. 


    The 2015 MTV VMAs will air on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, with Miley Cyrus serving as host.

    "Who is that guy with the crossguard lightsaber?," "Star Wars" fans wondered when the first "Force Awakens" trailer debuted. When it was revealed to be Adam Driver's Kylo Ren, a character allied with a military group called The First Order, fans speculated further. Who is Kylo Ren? Is he a Sith? What is The First Order? 


    Director J.J. Abrams clarified some details about his new "Episode VII" character in a recent interview with Empire magazine. He revealed that no, Ren is not a Sith, but he does work under Supreme Leader Snoke, whom Abrams described as "a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force." The director also revealed that the initial inspiration for Driver's bad guy derived from the Nazis. Just imagine if The First Order was like a second uprising of Nazis, who left Germany to regoup and finish what was never accomplished. Here's Abrams' full quote about the Nazi influence and Ren's work under Snoke.



    That all came out of conversations about, what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn’t get done?



    In a sense, then, Ren is like a Nazi of another galaxy, only much worse. Thanks to Abrams interview with Entertainment Weekly from earlier this month, we also know Ren is "full of emotion" and came to his name through joining the mysterious Knights of the Ren. Could that group have Nazi inspirations as well? We'll have to wait to see just how evil Ren is when "The Force Awakens" hits theaters on Dec. 18.


    For more, head to Empire.

    It's not "Almost Paradise" anymore -- "Bachelor in Paradise" has arrived, and in abundance. This season has offered us all the laughter, tears, making out and backstabbing we could possibly hope for.


    In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon, Culture Writer, and Emma Gray, Senior Women's Editor, recap episodes 7 and 8 of "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 2. We'll discuss JJ's American Hero send-off, Jade and Tanner sealing the BF/GF deal, Samantha's "puppet master" status and the big "Bachelor" reveal.

    Megan Fox may have to pay up in her divorce from Brian Austin Green.


    The 29-year-old "Transformers" star -- who filed for divorce late last week -- will "almost certainly" pay Green, 42, spousal support, TMZ reported Monday. The site claims Green has been suffering from vertigo and largely out of work since the couple was involved in a head-on collision with a drunk driver late last year. (Sources say the pair, who have two sons together, did not sign a prenup when they married in 2010.) 


    On HuffPost Live Monday, entertainment legal analyst John Burns said the health condition could have some bearing on the couple's divorce settlement: 



    "It's going to be huge. First of all, spousal support is intended to allow both people to maintain the same lifestyle they had during the course of the marriage, post-marriage and here you have Megan Fox, who made tons more money than the gentleman here, Brian Austin Green, so he was going to get spousal support no matter what. But the vertigo claim adds another element because he can't work, he can't do anything else ... he needs to maintain that same lifestyle and he can't do it because he can't work. That's going to increase the amount of money that Megan Fox has to pay out."

    Lisa Bonet may not have spoken publicly about the allegations surrounding Bill Cosby, her former TV dad on "The Cosby Show," but according to daughter Zoe Kravitz, she has a few thoughts on the matter. 


    In an interview with The Guardian, Kravitz explained that her mom is "just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is," adding, "But I don't think she has any insight. It's news to her as well." 


    The "X-Men: First Class" actress also admitted that her mother would "plead the fifth" whenever talk of Cosby came up. "I think she's just staying out of it," she said. 


    But that isn't to say Bonet doesn't care about what's going on. Kravitz also told the paper, "She's a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any woman who had been abused, she would say something." 


    Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by more than 50 women, 35 of whom shared their stories in a New York Magazine feature in July


    The comedian is facing a criminal investigation, but has yet to be charged. He is expected to testify under oath on Oct. 9, marking the first time he will be ordered to give a sworn deposition since a testimony he gave in a 2005 Pennsylvania case, during which he admitted to drugging women

    Hello,


    My name is John.


    I'm a writer, a brother and (up until this week) the silent owner of several Pitbull albums, concert DVDs, tanks, shot glasses, chain wallets and soul-patch colognes.


    When I tell people about this, I'm hit with an avalanche of insane/misguided/uninformed reactions. People assuming I'm crazy or naive for loving my Pitbull. People don't think twice to either ask me, "WHAT, WHY?" or say, "I could never!" Some comments are just annoying. Some are condescending. But all of them make me shake my head in disgust.


    I thought I would clear up the confusion by addressing the horrible assumptions about Pitbull. As somebody who has seen Pitbull perform at over 20 promotional events for Bud Light Lime, I believe I can give you a much better idea of Mr. Worldwide than John Q. Public.


    Take a look at the statements below and see if you're guilty of uttering them.


    Pitbull is inherently bad.


    Pitbull isn't inherently bad. A lot of people find pleasure in him. It's just the hype around him that puts him in a bad light.


    A house with Pitbull in it is less safe than a house without.


    There is no evidence to prove that. Also Pitbull doesn't typically go into houses. He prefers bungalos, yachts, or hotel lobbies.


    Pitbull wants to bite me.


    If he said that, he meant that in a sexual way. 


    Pitbull is good for nothing but having sex and making noise. I mean, he isn't even a musician. He doesn't play an instrument or sing or rap or anything, really. All he does is stand on stage and gawk at pretty girls.


    Wow. Actually Pitbull IS a musician. He's won a Billboard MUSIC Award and he was nominated for six MTV VMAs. Those are the facts. And he "gawks at pretty girls" because it's part of the "sex-perience."



    Pitbull is stupid and angry. I saw a clip of Pitbull on stage and he was literally just walking around while the song played behind him. Sometimes he would bark into the mic but that was it ...


    Look, you can choose to hate my Pitbull, but you're just denying yourself an incredible addition to your extended family. Pitbull just wants love. And if you're willing to give it, Pitbull will love you back. Trust me. He gave me a "Don't Stop the Party" tank and all I had to do was run next to his party bus for two miles while he threw stuff out of a window.



    Pitbull is naturally aggressive. I saw a clip of him pulling a guy on the stage and then punching him in the face! WTF!?


    You mean this video? HELLO, the guy was dancing close! I mean, I would totally punch a dude in the face if he tried to grind with me while giving me money!



    Yeah, that's more like it!!!


    Anyways, does this sound familiar? I thought so. I hope you learned something today. Don't worry, there's always time to learn and grow.


    Please leave your newly educated thoughts on my Pitbull in the comments.


    Love,


    John Trowbridge

    BY MATTHEW ROZSA

    America's most high-profile Christian conservatives often use their social media platforms and media prominence to extol the virtues of chastity -- only to get caught up in sex scandals.

    The most recent example comes by way of Josh Duggar, one of the oldest kids from the hit reality TV show 19 Kids and CountingComing on the heels of a revelation last month that Duggar molested five young girls (including his own sisters), Americans have now learned that the outspoken opponent of same-sex marriageabortion rights, and sex education was cheating on his wife with an account on the notorious dating site for cheaters, Ashley Madison. "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever," Duggar proclaimed in a public statement. "While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this became an addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife."

    MORE FROM THE DAILY DOT




    Duggar is certainly a hypocrite, but it's arguable whether or not he's the biggest hypocrite of them all -- because over the past few decades, plenty of other religious conservatives could give him a run for his money at that title.



    A short list might include names such as Jason Dore, executive director of the Louisiana Republican Party, whose information also appeared in the Ashley Madison dump. It would also include Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House and 2012 Republican presidential candidate who cheated on two of his wives (including when he was calling for Bill Clinton's impeachment over the scandal involving Monica Lewinsky). There's also Evangelical pastor Ted Haggard, who despite his anti-gay rhetoric admitted to having an affair with another man. And former Sen. John Ensign of Nevada was revealed to have had an affair with the wife of a former staffer.

    The list goes on, and on, and on. During the same month that he voted against an anti-discrimination bill, North Dakota legislator Randy Boehning sent an unsolicited picture of his genitals to a 21-year-old on a gay dating site. Former Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina had his status as a conservative darling was destroyed when he vanished for several days to have an affair with an Argentinian woman.

    Then-Alabama Attorney General Troy King attempted to outlaw sex toys and opposed gay rights, before being caught by his wife having sex with a male college student. Another Southern conservative, Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana, had a reputation for promoting "old-fashioned" values when news surfaced his frequent engagement with the D.C. Madam. And who could forget former Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, another anti-gay rights conservative, who was caught soliciting sex from a male undercover cop in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bathroom.

    Why does this keep happening?



    When it comes to conservatives being caught up in sex scandals, the reason could be traced to what Sigmund Freud called the "reaction formation." The concept, as Freud coined it, signifies a hostile fight against outward symbols of inward emotions that are being stifled -- in other words, self-repression. As it relates to homophobic leaders cheating on their wives with other men, a study from a 2012 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology make shed some light.

    MORE FROM THE DAILY DOT




    The researchers discovered that individuals who identified as "highly straight" but had latent impulses for sex with other men were far more likely to favor anti-gay policies. In addition, those men were also more likely to call for stricter punishments against gay people who commit petty crimes. "Not all those who campaign against gay men and lesbians secretly feel same-sex attractions," explained Dr. Richard M. Ryan to The New York Times. "But at least some who oppose homosexuality are likely to be individuals struggling against parts of themselves, having themselves been victims of oppression and lack of acceptance."

    The explanation is pretty similar when talking about heterosexual sex scandals, such as the one involving Duggar. One study found that residents of highly religious and politically conservative states spent more money on Internet pornography than their less religious and conservative counterparts. And the states which banned gay marriage had 11 percent more porn subscribers. There is a solidly-established statistical correlation between social conservatism and higher rates of abortion, teen pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases -- and nations that have more liberal views on sexuality generally have fewer sex-related health problems than countries that are more repressive.

    All of this is because, as Dr. Christopher Ryan explained at Psychology Today:

    If expression of sexuality is thwarted, the human psyche tends to grow twisted into grotesque, enraged perversions of desire. Unfortunately, the distorted rage resulting from sexual repression rarely takes the form of rebellion against the people and institutions behind the repression... Instead, the rage is generally directed at helpless victims who are sacrificed to the sick gods of guilt, shame, and ignorant pride.





    It's worth noting here that many of the right-wing objections to what they characterize as pathological sexuality are incredibly modern notions. Beliefs like the idea that there is a clear dichotomy between heterosexuality and homosexuality, or that the traits associated with womanhood are fixed, are relatively modern. They're the simultaneous product of industrialization -- which has created national and global cultures in place of purely local ones -- and a reaction to the dizzyingly fast social and cultural changes that have been wrought over the past two centuries.

    These problems, then, may very well have a root cause. While sexually repressed lifestyles may not be psychologically healthy for individuals, there is nothing morally wrong or dangerous about deciding to follow an abstinent (or an otherwise sexually-conservative) set of values. The danger comes when one's individual sexual inclinations manifests in social policy, affecting others.

    Although social conservatives claim to promote "old-fashioned" sexual values, it is necessary to understand that there are deeper psychological drives behind much of the political rhetoric. The personal intersects with the political, often with dire consequences for innocent men and women who want nothing more than to live according to their own inclinations -- and to do so free from persecution.

    They have every right to do this -- and we, as a society, have a moral responsibility to protect them from hypocrites like Josh Duggar.

    He's performed in giant stadiums in front of thousands, sung duets with superstars like Elton John and wife Faith Hill, and sold out arenas across the country, but country music's Tim McGraw didn't begin his career with the confidence he now projects on stage. Dating back to his earlier performances as an emerging artist, McGraw said he relied on a troubling vice to give him the courage to step out in front of an audience.


    "I used to have to have a few drinks to get on stage, because I'm sort of an innately shy person," he told "Oprah's Master Class" last summer. "To step out on stage and to sing and be in front of people was nerve-wracking for me in a lot of ways. That was the way I got my courage -- some liquid courage, with a little Jack Daniels."


    This habit, he added, soon became an addiction and such a crutch that performing seemed impossible without it. "I couldn't do it without [drinking]," McGraw said.



     
    Despite his reliance on alcohol and his own mother's concerns about his use of this "liquid courage," McGraw hadn't seen the real danger in what he was doing. "I grew up in Louisiana and we used to drink Miller ponies, sitting on a tailgate around a bonfire. I mean, that was part of the culture of growing up for us," he said.


    Looking back on these times with the perspective that comes from sobriety, McGraw said he realized that he spent a lot of time making excuses for his behavior.


    "You can come up with a million excuses why you drink too much," he said. "Lack of confidence, the success that came so quickly, and then some of the things you didn't realize was trauma, I guess, back when you were 11... I think the older you get, the more you start realizing those things."


    As time went on, McGraw came to the harsh realization for himself.


    "It got to the point where I knew that I drank too much," he said. "I knew that it was affecting my personal relationships, it was affecting my professional relationships, it was affecting my family. It was turning me into a person that I didn't want to be... I was at a point where I could lose everything that I had in my life, first and foremost, my family. It [was] time to stop. And I stopped."



     
    In 2008, the night before embarking on another tour, McGraw said he had his last drink. "[I] flew to Florida that morning from being wasted the night before, and started that tour. Haven't drank since."


    As he said in the 2014 interview, performing completely sober was an entirely new and challenging experience.


    "That was the toughest tour that I've ever done in my life... to get through that tour not drinking," McGraw said. "I'd never done it before... I could probably count on one hand the times I'd stepped on stage where I didn't have alcohol in me, or something. That was the toughest thing about quitting."

    "Oprah's Master Class" returns for its fifth season on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET. Upcoming masters include Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Duvall, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, Smokey Robinson, Jeff Bridges, James Taylor and Patti LaBelle.

    On Tuesday, Selena Gomez woke up like this -- ready to take a selfie in just a white, cropped halter top and cheetah-print undies. The 23-year-old singer simply captioned the sexy selfie "morning," as she snapped the photo from inside what appears to be a changing room or a spa, judging from the women behind her in white bathrobes. 



    A photo posted by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on



    The photo comes days after The Sunday Times published an interview with Gomez, in which she opened up about that "purity ring" she famously wore as a young teen while dating Nick Jonas. 


    “I’m not embarrassed to say that," she said of the fact that the young couple wore the rings in the first place. "I’m also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone."


    The singer later took to Twitter to say that she was disappointed in the media for refusing to grow with her and for remaining focused on her past relationships.

    The new "Ghostbusters" reboot is equipped with a serious dose of girl power thanks to its all-female lead cast, but it's even stronger than we thought. And we're totally cool with that. 


    Melissa McCarthy, one of the stars, took a moment to appreciate all the women working on the new reboot by sharing an awesome photo of every woman who had a part in the film (either in front of the camera or behind the scenes) on Instagram. In the pic, McCarthy, along with her co-stars Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, stand in front of a group of over 50 cast and crew members, while holding a giant sign printed with the words "girl power." 


    The "Spy" star gave a little shoutout to fellow girl power advocate Ellen DeGeneres and captioned the photo, "3 cheers to @theellenshow from all the remarkable women of #ghostbusters. When we stand together we are unstoppable! #girlpower." 



    The new "Ghostbusters" film has been polarizing, to say the least, with some fans excited about the all-female cast and others totally bashing the whole concept. 


    But regardless of what people think about the film, it's no doubt an important project, especially because of its strong female representations (both in front of and behind the camera). And if the photo above proves anything, it's that women in Hollwood can do anything men can. 


    Take that, haters.

    Stealing from the president feels like a thing that should be a crime, but when you're Derek Jeter, receiving a pardon is a laughing matter to President Barack Obama. 


    "Derek Jeter stole money from me," said Obama to laughter at a fundraising event for the Nevada Democratic Party on Monday night. “And it was clearly a set-up.”


    Last November, Obama played a round of golf with Jeter and Las Vegas Sun newspaper owner Brian Greenspun at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Greenspun hosted Monday night's event for the Democrats, but back in November, he was on Jeter's side of the golf green.



    "I knew Derek, but I hadn’t played golf with him before, and as we got up to the practice range, he was shanking balls everywhere," said Obama.


    "And I said, well, do you play golf, Derek? He said, 'I just started two weeks ago.'" 


    Sure, Derek. In March, Jeter hosted a celebrity golf tournament in Las Vegas, beating out the likes of Michael Jordan, Russell Wilson and Ray Allen to finish second at his own tournament. Clearly, November 2014 wasn't his first time on the green.



    Obama, not realizing that this was, in every way, a classic hustler's setup, went ahead and gave Jeter a 30-stroke handicap and a cash bet on the final score. Failure -- and a lighter wallet -- instantly became an inevitability. 


    "And then on the first tee suddenly the ball just went straight and down the middle of the fairway," continued Obama, according to a transcript of his remarks provided by the White House. "We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of it." 


    Ice cold.

    Jennifer Lawrence and the Schumer sisters, Amy and Kim, are almost done writing a script together, The New York Times reports. Hold your screaming -- here's what we know:


    1. It's going to be a comedy. (Duh.)


    2. Lawrence and Amy Schumer will play sisters. 


    And that's about it. Lawrence dropped the news while chatting with a reporter about "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2," which arrives in November. Turns out, their famous friendship was sparked by fanmail Lawrence sent Schumer after seeing the latter's "Trainwreck." 


    She recalled writing in that first, fateful message: "I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you," the Times reports. After just a couple months of emailing, texting and jet-ski adventures, the pair has "about 100 pages" of a movie set to go. Lawrence explained:


    “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago," where Schumer's sister Kim, who helped write "Trainwreck," will also help them pen the movie we now cannot wait to see.

    Nick Jonas is the latest, and most unexpected, celebrity to join the candy-colored hair trend. Well, sort of. 


    The 22-year-old covers the latest issue of Adon magazine sporting a cobalt blue 'do, which looks precisely painted on, and a silver jacket (we're getting major '90s boy band vibes). The singer/actor also shows off his best "blue steel," giving Zoolander a run for his money. The mag shared the image on Instragram Tuesday.

    Sheer gorgeousness. 


    Jennifer Lopez wears a sheer Balmain jumpsuit in a new spread for Paper magazine. The suit was designed by Olivier Rousteing, with whom she appears on the cover of Paper's September 2015 issue as designer and muse.


    She shared the photo along with a handful of others from the shoot on Instagram Wednesday along with the hashtag #LuxeinFlux.

    "All the muses that have inspired me are really strong and they sometimes fight against the world to show their own rules, which I think Jennifer did throughout her career and she's still doing it," Rousteing said in the accompanying interview. "You see many stars today try to look like her. She imposes her own rules. And when I think, 'What is the Balmain girl?,' it's this. It's a woman who knows what she wants and is going to express it."


    "The concept of a fearless, strong woman who radiates confidence inside and out is an inspiring idea," 46-year-old Lopez added. "It's a great thing for young girls and women to see Balmain's muses illustrated by these ideas of strength and beauty. For them it's about a woman who creates her own destiny and forges her own future."
