Former BRAVE Director (Pixar’s First Female Director) Says The Studio Is Sexist

If you went to see Pixar’s BRAVE in theaters, you may have noticed in the end credits that the director was listed as Brenda Chapman…the first female director in the studio’s history. Well it turns out that there is a much deeper story for Mrs. Chapman, one that led to her firing and her accusations that Pixar is sexist.

If you went to see Pixar’s BRAVE in theaters, you may have noticed in the end credits that the director was listed as Brenda Chapman…the first female director in the studio’s history.  Well it turns out that there is a much deeper story for Mrs. Chapman, one that led to her firing and her accusations that Pixar is sexist.

In a new interview with The New York Times, Chapman talks about her being hired to direct the film, and then being replaced by director Mark Andrews.  She blames it all on sexism:

“When Pixar took me off of Brave — a story that came from my heart, inspired by my relationship with my daughter — it was devastating…To have [my story] taken away and given to someone else, and a man at that, was truly distressing on so many levels.”

Chapman says that the replacement is a very common one in the animation field, but to replace her on her own project and give that project to a man was just insulting:

“Animation directors are not protected like live-action directors who have the Directors Guild to go to battle for them…We are replaced on a regular basis. … To have [my story] taken away and given to someone else, and a man at that, was truly distressing on so many levels.”

But sexism is definitely not something just relating to her former employers, Chapman says.  It’s something that has been running rampant in the industry for a long time:

“Sometimes women express an idea and are shot down, only to have a man express essentially the same idea and have it broadly embraced.”

The question is…do you agree with Mrs. Chapman’s belief of sexism?  Or do you think there was a legitimate reason for  the change up?

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
