    "If Daryl dates, we riot" was probably the mantra of some "Walking Dead" fans when they heard rumors about Norman Reedus going steady with his co-star Emily Kinney. Good news, fans. Reedus' rep says those rumors are false, and even better, now you can take Kinney's place.


    Reedus is teaming up with Omaze to make money for Make-A-Wish, and to do so, he's offering a lucky fan the chance to attend the "Walking Dead" Season 6 premiere with him, hang out at New York Comic Con and also get a little chow.


    Just imagine hanging out at Madison Square Garden for the premiere with the dude who plays Daryl Dixon, wondering if he'll lick your face goodnight and making small talk out of Rick Grimes' 3 questions.


    "So, Norman, I don't want to be too forward, but how many people have you killed and why?" 


    Dang. Talk about romantic. 


    The best news of all is this pretty much guarantees Reedus' character will at least make it through the Season 6 premiere. Or else, prepare for things to get awkward.

    NEW YORK (RNS) If you can’t get enough of Pope Francis, then how about a little Stephen Colbert?


    Yes, the new host of the CBS “Late Show” officially premiered Tuesday night (Sept. 8) as David Letterman’s much-anticipated replacement for the vaunted late night slot. The new sketches, plus big laughs — and perhaps a few duds — kept the television critics busy, at least for a news cycle or two.


    For a different side of the multifaceted comic, however, there’s a new interview in which Colbert talks about his Catholicism with the kind of passion and humor that evoke the folksy faith of Francis, who will be making his own debut later this month when he visits the U.S. for the first time.




    Colbert has reportedly been moving heaven and earth to try to snag a few minutes with the pontiff, who visits Washington, New York and Philadelphia from Sept. 22-27. That’d be a season-making score, to be sure; yet it may be beyond even Colbert’s impressive influence.


    But like Francis, Colbert is no slouch when it comes to evangelization.


    He taught Sunday school at his New Jersey parish and he frequently deployed Catholicism for semi-serious fodder for his previous incarnation as a right-wing blowhard on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central. (And had a Jesuit priest, the Rev. James Martin, as his official chaplain and regular guest.)


    He has appeared with New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who also has a way with humor, to discuss joy and faith. And he has spoken eloquently about the tragedies of his childhood and the way faith sustained him, and continues to do so.


    “(M)y context for my existence, is that I am here to know God, love God, serve God, that we might be happy with each other in this world and with Him in the next — the catechism,” he said in a recent cover story for GQ magazine. “That makes a lot of sense to me. I got that from my mom. And my dad. And my siblings.”




    In this latest sit-down, with the Rev. Thomas Rosica, English-language attache to the Vatican press office and head of the Toronto-based Salt and Light media network, Colbert’s answers range from the silly (Favorite saint: “St. Arugula … that’s the saint I worship. Okay? Delicious!”) to the serious: how the Holy Spirit forms one’s conscience.


    “I should have said this in Latin, what I just said,” the comedian quips as he waxes theological at one point.


    During the course of the conversation with Rosica, Colbert cites the poet e. e . cummings, John Milton, Carl Sagan, St. Anselm (yes, the ontological argument for God’s existence), and St. Thomas Aquinas.




    The interview will be broadcast in full on the Salt and Light channel on Sunday (Sept. 13) at 8 p.m. EDT.


    And what would Colbert ask Francis if he snagged an interview?


    “I would ask him how love leads him to joy, or does love lead him to joy?” Colbert says. And he would ask him about being “a fool for Christ” — a role he sees Francis playing, as well as Colbert himself.


    There’s that, and much more, both profound and funny. For example:



    “Doing something joyfully doesn’t make something any easier, it only makes it better. And, also it makes it communal — that we’re all doing it together. When you work in fear, or when you work in distress, you often feel alone. But jokes, laughter, humor, joy, whatever you want to call it … it connects people. And as I said earlier, what do we want to be? Not alone.”


     


    “Faith ultimately can’t be argued, faith has to be felt, and hopefully you can still feel your faith fully, and let your mind have a logical life of its own and they do not defy each other but complement each other … Logic itself will not lead me to God. But my love of the world and my gratitude toward it will. So hopefully I can use my mind to make my jokes and not deny my love for God at the same time.”


     


    “I think you have to make a choice to perceive Christ in the people around you, and to love them without fear that anything will be taken from you in the gift that you give them of your own love.”

    Clearly Kylie Jenner doesn't wake up like this.



    A photo posted by King Kylie (@kyliejenner) on



    In fact, it took HuffPost fashion editor Michelle Persad 90 minutes to transform into the reality star. Not to mention, she had makeover help from a professional makeup artist and hairstylist. 


    While Jenner proudly posts on her Instagram account the luxury makeup products, at-home manicures and custom hair extensions behind her signature look, we were surprised to discover that her beauty arsenal includes a few drugstore staples, too.


    In a recent New York Times article, the 18-year-old revealed that she uses affordable products, including Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, Wispies false eyelashes from CVS and Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. Can you picture Jenner wiping off all those layers of face makeup after a photo shoot with a drugstore makeup remover? We need Instagram photo proof!


    For days when she goes minimal with the makeup, she applies NARS Orgasm blush on top of a lightweight foundation for a natural finish. But the most surprising part of Jenner's beauty routine has to be her fragrance, that is when she does decide to wear any. "I use Victoria’s Secret sometimes. They have this Coconut Passion spray," she said.


    Be right back. We're going to post up at the mall until we spot Kylie Jenner coming out with VS bags filled with fragrance mists.

    There are a variety of formulas to follow to get an audience to jump out of their seats or cover their eyes with sweaty palms. Scary movies have long employed jump scares, relied on eerie scores or used gratuitous violence to turn up the fear factor. But Austrian filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala have instead found the horror in both the familiar and the unknown to create one of the most chilling movies of the year in "Goodnight Mommy" ("Ich Seh, Ich Seh"). 


    The film finds two 9-year-old twin brothers living in a secluded modern home in the Austrian countryside. Their mother (Susanne Wuest), or a woman purporting to be, returns home with a bandage-wrapped face after cosmetic surgery, recalling the likes of "Eyes Without a Face" and "The Skin I Live In." The supposed mother begins acting in ways that make the boys, Lukas and Elias, question the identity of who might actually lie behind all the gauze. 


    What follows is a nightmarish psychological thriller that accelerates to a violent torture fest of terrifying and shocking proportions. But before any onscreen violence occurs, "Goodnight Mommy" builds tension with unnerving imagery that, while familiar, becomes increasingly uncomfortable to watch. Moments of everyday activities as simple as the boys flossing their teeth or the mother slowly crunching away at day-old bread add more to the growing anxiety of the film's atmosphere than any premonition of actual evil or fantasy.


    "We feel that horror films are a lot scarier if they come from reality," co-writer and co-director Fiala told The Huffington Post, before adding that "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" is still the scariest movie he's seen. "The Shining" and David Cronenberg's "Dead Ringers" were two other classics name-dropped by the directors while discussing their film.



    "Goodnight Mommy" also makes allusions to famous twists of other horror films and thrillers (which we won't name so as not to spoil the plot). Even so, the film is an original gem that will stay with you long after you watch, much to the discontent of your dreams for the next several nights. "We like to play games," Fiala said. "We like films that challenge you as a viewer, that maybe also attack you, make you feel uncomfortable." 


    The film, which is Austria's selection for Best Foreign Film at next year's Oscars, succeeds at that, so much so that during a press screening it incited audible gasps from a theater full of critics, with one exclaiming, "This is crazy!"during the intense third act. The horror film is one of the most startling in years (in close competition for the top spot with "It Follows"). But while the ending may be one of the most terrifying on-screen moments, the film also isn't solely contingent upon the reveal of the final twist, which isn't hard to guess early on. Some viewers already told the filmmakers they knew the twist from the film's first frame. "I don’t think that’s a bad sign," Fiala told HuffPost, before Franz added, "It was not about only how it’s going to end."


    In fact, the ending isn't as clear-cut as some may assume it to be. "My mother who saw it three times now still doesn’t know [the twist]," Franz said, laughing. While the film seems to resolves one of the puzzling mysteries by the end, it leaves much up to interpretation. "I think it’s open," Fiala said. "We have an ending in mind. But everyone sees his own film anyway." Perhaps that's the biggest strength of "Goodnight Mommy," which is sure to be a cult hit that you'll want to revisit to put the pieces together. That is, if you can stomach the horror a second time around.


    "Goodnight Mommy" opens in limited release on Sept. 11.

    "Nashville" star and general goddess Connie Britton knows the key to true beauty. And in a new video, she's finally willing to share it with the world. 


    Surprise! That beauty secret is feminism.


    "When used regularly, feminism has been known to produce amazing results," explains Britton, "such as a woman's right to vote, a woman's right to her own body, a woman's right to become a kickass athlete, the Violence Against Women Act, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act and more."




    The PSA-style short is part of The Representation Project’s 2015 #AskHerMore campaign, which pushes red carpet reporters to ask more of female celebrities than "Who are you wearing?" and "Why do you have angel hair?" The video was written, directed and co-produced by actress (and Britton's "Nashville" co-star) Laura Benanti, who also happens to be a pretty badass feminist herself. 


    "The fact that many young women shy away from calling themselves feminists shows us that there is still a misunderstanding of the word," Benanti told The Huffington Post. "All people should be feminists. Also... feminists are funny, too."


    Hell yeah they are. 


    As Britton says in the video: "Feminism is made to be used on a daily basis and works best when shared." 


    So let's spread the love and feminist beauty -- and try to ask famous ladies something more interesting than "What does your manicure look like?" this awards season.

    Leave it to Beyoncé to be crowned the queen of a new kingdom without even saying a word. 


    For its latest issue, Flaunt magazine built a new land, Califuk (California plus the U.K.), and appointed Bey to be its leader. Califuk, as the mag puts it, is "a movement" about "place-making and cultured fissure. And abandon. And intimacy. And her."


    To commemorate the announcement, the megastar posed for a sexy poolside photoshoot, naturally. She's also on the cover, smizing like a pro. 



    The former Destiny's Child frontwoman (Was it ever really a group at all?) channels FKA Twigs in one shot, which sees her holding her chest while lying in the water. In another photo, she's seemingly defying gravity. Because not only is she royalty, she's also superhuman, and the rules of physics simply do not apply to her. 






    Photographer: @robins_robin. Stylist: @zerinaakers. #CALIFUK

    A photo posted by Flaunt Magazine (@flauntmagazine) on



    In keeping with her "seen but not heard" media philosophy, the diva didn't grant the mag an actual interview. (She may be their queen, but even they weren't worthy.) Bey did, however, humor the mag by playing a word association game. The result is a word web that offers a tiny glimpse into the mind of the untouchable star. 


    The key takeaways are as follows: The word "iconic" is overused (everyone who dreams of interviewing Ms. Carter, take note), Blue Ivy Carter is her definition of confidence and she has a hair closet (!!!) that is overpopulated.

    We've always known Demi Lovato had serious pipes, but after hearing her latest cover, we're fully-converted Lovatics. 


    The singer performed a beautifully haunting cover of Hozier's "Take Me To Church" at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on Wednesday. With the help of her pared-down band and two backup singers, Lovato made the track her own and gave us major goosebumps in the process. 


    Lovato told Live Lounge's Clara Amfo, "It's not your typical pop song ... I think I even tweeted, 'Thank God somebody put this on the radio because this is incredible music.'" 


    To check out the whole performance, just watch the video below. Also, listen to her sing a subdued version of her hit "Cool for the Summer."

    Everyone loves a cover song, and the Foo Fighters have been keeping their fans happy all summer long on their latest tour.


    At their Edinburgh, Scotland show on Tuesday, the band busted out a cover of The Vaselines’ “Molly’s Lips," a song Nirvana covered regularly, but was a first for the Foo Fighters. 


    Nirvana first covered the song in 1991, and it appeared on their 1992 album "Incesticide."




    Meanwhile, the Foo Fighters have been keeping their fans guessing, At their Milton Keynes, England show on Sept. 5,  the band covered Queen and David Bowie’s 1981 hit “Under Pressure," and were joined onstage by Queen's Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.

    There are no words. Obviously.


    Another installment of "History of Rap" made for a great "Tonight Show" on Wednesday, but adding a lip sync battle with Ellen DeGeneres just took this to the next level. Oh, and Justin Timberlake was judging. (What!?)


    Like, what's going on here? How do you even top this?


    Honestly, you probably can't. But it's been fun, Jimmy Fallon


    With a crazy week of shows ahead, the talk show host probably isn't going to be done anytime soon, but if he did decide to walk away, breaking out the Nae Nae while DeGeneres turns on the swag for Rihanna's "Bitch Better Have My Money" is the perfect way to drop the mic.


    (Uh, does someone have her money? She seems kind of serious.)


    "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

    Great news for all the Britney Spears fans out there: the "Work B**ch" singer has just extended her Las Vegas contract. So if you haven't made it out to the land of casinos and hotels to see her play (or even if you have), you'll have two more years' worth of chances. 


    That's right, two years. The 33-year-old performer made the big announcement at her show on Wednesday night at the Axis at Planet Hollywood. 


    "I have some big news tonight," Spears said to the crowd. "Usually, I get you guys to help me count to three, but tonight I want you to help me count to two because I’m going to be in Vegas for two more years!”


    Lucky for us, the whole announcement is on Instagram. Just check it out below!



    Two more years!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, Serena, but we have new "Single Ladies" champions at the U.S. Open. 


    During a changeover at the quarterfinal match between Roger Federer and Richard Gasquet on Wednesday, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon decided to show off their best Beyoncé impressions


    You'd think they'd be worn out after their "History of Rap 6" performance at the "Tonight Show" that same day, but thankfully that's not the case. In fact, the moves are so on-point that it's almost like they take on the form of the singer. It's almost like they are Beyoncé ...


    But they're not. They're just two grown dudes dancing to "Single Ladies." And we like it so much that if we had rings, we'd put them all on it.

    Taylor Swift continued her hang out with every celebrity publicly 1989 Tour Wednesday night, bringing Wiz Khalifa out to the stage in Houston, Texas. 


    Swift joined the rapper for a rendition of his current hit song "See You Again," typically performed with Charlie Puth. 







    So sorry Charlie that you didn't get to join in on the festivities. But it seems like you're at least kind of OK with it:





    Previously on tour, Swift has had, like, one thousand celebrity guests join her for performances, including Avril Lavigne, Selena Gomez, Alanis Morissette, and "Orange Is the New Black" star, Uzo Aduba.




    "Friendship," y'all.

    Fatherhood sure looks good on Justin Timberlake. 


    The 34-year-old singer shared a couple adorable photos of son Silas during his appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday. The photos were shared on the show's Twitter account


    In one photo, JT is seen holding up his little guy, whose big eyes are looking right at the camera. Both father and son have big smiles on their faces, making the pic even cuter. In another image, taken after a bath, we see Silas with mom Jessica Biel. The five-month old is wrapped up in an elephant towel as Biel plants a big kiss on his cheek. Just adorable. 





    During the show, Timberlake talked about fatherhood, saying, "It is the most insanely amazing, most beautiful, unbelievable thing that could ever happen to you."


    Awwwww. He's loving it (ba da ba ba ba).

    What's the meaning of life? Why are we here? What's Oprah doing right now?


    Life's full of big questions, but on Wednesday, Stephen Colbert and Scarlett Johansson finally gave us some answers. 


    You know, it's reported that Colbert took a major pay cut for his new gig at the "Late Show," and there were worries before the premiere on Tuesday that it would even get on the air. But now that Colbert and Johansson have finally given us a definitive answer on whether it's better to have feet for hands or hands for feet, it's clear that in the end it was all worth it.


    "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

    Earlier this summer, the trailer for Jennifer Lawrence's new movie "Joy" raised some eyebrows, as well as questions about why Hollywood insists on casting 20-somethings as 30 and 40-something characters. 


    The 25-year-old actress was 24 when she shot the film and when the trailer was released. In it, she plays real life Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano, a single mother, who was a full decade older than the actress when she developed the prototype for a product that would make her millions of dollars. (And the character ages throughout the film.)


    While her casting has clearly rubbed some people the wrong way, Lawrence brushed off concerns she's too young to play the character, telling the New York Times:


    "[Director] David [O. Russell] gets visions. He’s in his own beautiful, amazing world. Those kinds of silly questions don’t really matter to him. It’s not like I was old enough for 'American Hustle.' And I was way too young for 'Silver Linings [Playbook].' That’s why I almost didn’t get it."


    Recall that Lawrence played a quirky widow in "Silver Linings Playbook" and an unhappy housewife in "American Hustle," with both of the actors playing her love interests clocking in at about 15 years older than she was at the time.  


    Lawrence's comments come a week after Anne Hathaway, who at just 32, revealed she's already feeling the effects of ageism in Hollywood, and losing roles to younger actresses.


    "I can't complain about it because I benefited from it. When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties and I would get them," she told Glamour U.K. "And now I'm in my early thirties and I'm like, 'Why did that 24-year-old get that part?' I was that 24-year-old once, I can't be upset about it, it's the way things are. All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you and if people go to see them you'll be allowed to make more."


    Hathaway's comments are interesting since she was originally cast in Lawrence's role in "Silver Linings Playbook," but left the project due to "creative differences" with Russell, according to studio head Harvey Weinstein.

    When FKA twigs does a cover, she doesn't just sing, she performs


    The singer dropped by the BBC Radio 1 live lounge where she performed a uniquely haunting rendition of Sia's "Elastic Heart" (we didn't think it was possible, but she proved us wrong). Twigs went way beyond a typical cover and added some contemporary choreography to the mix. (Side note: In case you didn't know, Robert Pattinson's lady love is also a talented dancer.) 


    Once the second verse kicked in, FKA twigs removed her jacket and eventually released the mic from its stand so she could really move around. With the help of a male dancer, the performance was elevated from a stripped-down cover to a beautiful work of art. But what else should we expect from the woman who gave us "Pendulum?" 


    You can check out the entire performance below, and watch her perform her song "In Time," as well

    Memo to Donald Trump: can you not?


    The former reality star, who has convinced a sizable number of people that he's running a campaign to be president in 2016, has angered your favorite '90s band R.E.M. 


    The Donald played the band's 1987 hit "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)," on the campaign trail -- and it's the opposite of fine, according to frontman Michael Stipe. 


    “Go fuck yourselves, the lot of you -- you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men,” Stipe said in an email to The Daily Beast after Trump played the tune at  Wednesday’s tea-party Stop the Iran Deal rally in Washington, DC. "Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.” 


    Similarly, R.E.M.'s founding bassist had this to say when asked for comment on Twitter: 






    The band, who broke up in 2011,  also released a statement on Facebook on Wednesday regarding Trump's use of their song. 



    "While we do not authorize or condone the use of our music at this political event, and do ask that these candidates...

    Posted by R.E.M. on Wednesday, September 9, 2015

    Meanwhile, the members of R.E.M. aren't alone in wishing Trump would leave their music alone. Neil Young was also not cool with the 69-year-old blaring his hit "Rockin' In the Free World" during Trump's campaign kickoff back in June.

    Mad Men may be off the air, but fans are still hungry for gossip about tall drink of water Jon Hamm. Hence why the actor and his longtime girlfriend, director/writer/actress Jennifer Westfeldt, publicly announced their split after nearly two decades together.  

    "With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history," the couple confirmed to People in a joint statement on Monday. "We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward."

    MORE FROM THE DAILY DOT




    A cursory Google search shows some news outlets reported this story with as much tact and grace as possible:

    john hamm jennifer

    Heck, even TMZ and Perez Hilton--celebrity gossip blogs infamous for their poor taste--used acceptable headlines. 

    But The Hollywood Reporter took a different approach by omitting Westfeldt's name in their headline, reducing her to just being Hamm's girlfriend:




    Post-Mad Men, Hamm is without a doubt more well-known. But even the most cursory IMDb or even Wikipedia search shows that Westfeldt is far more than just a celebrity ex-girlfriend. In fact, for most of their adult lives prior to Mad Men, Westfeldt was the far more successful half of the couple (namely, for writing and starring in Kissing Jessica Stein in 2001).  

    Of course, the good people of Twitter responded immediately:










    The omission is reminiscent of the treatment of Amal Clooney, a lauded human rights lawyer who happens to be married to a very famous George. When the couple married last year, publications ranging from the BBC to the Guardian reported the story with headlines like "Film star George Clooney marries in Venice." One can understand why a site called the Business Woman Media cheekily flipped things around and used the headline: "Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor."

    So now seems as good a time as ever to briefly share some of Westfeldt's many accomplishments, which any reporter can easily find on Wikipedia:

    • Wrote the films Kissing Jessica Stein, Ira & Abby, and Friends with Kids

    • Directed and starred in Friends with Kids

    • Starred in over 25 off-Broadway plays

    • Won the 2003 GLAAD Media Award

    • Tony Award Nominee

    • Yale graduate


    And for future reference, here are some alternate headlines The Hollywood Reporter can use about Hamm:

    • "Salon.com 2007 Sexiest Man Living splits from 2003 GLAAD Media Award winner"

    • "One time Girlsguest star splits from one time contestant on The Date"

    • "Gap scarf ad breaks up"

    • "Emmy-nominee and Tony-nominee split"

    • "Jennifer Westfeldt and Jon Hamm split"

    • "Two actors split"

    Attending a U.S. citizenship ceremony may not be the most entertaining thing in the world, unless Matthew McConaughey is there. 


    Such was the case for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. The actress appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday where she talked about her experience of being sworn in as an American citizen with McConaughey's wife, Camila Alves, as their husbands watched. 


    "McConaughey shows up looking like he's going on safari," Blunt joked to Kimmel. "I was like, 'You could have worn a shirt and tie. Camilla looks amazing!'" 


    Blunt also explained that the "Dallas Buyers Club" actor seemed really into the ceremony, nodding his head as he watched on. Following the ceremony, the actress asked her husband, Krasinski, if he enjoyed himself, to which he replied (according to Blunt), "I was doing the best I could not to stand next to McConaughey in that courtroom, and go, 'All rise, all rise, all rise.'"


    The. Best. 


    You can see Blunt tell the whole story in the video below and continue watching as Kimmel tests her knowledge of American culture.
