        Kanye West finally has a real reason not to smile.Over the weekend, the rapper broke out a cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" at the Glastonbury Festival, and it could probably be best described as polarizing.

    'The Bachelorette' Season 11 Episode 8 Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Feels G... - Huffington Post NEW!

        It's 2015. By now, reality TV is a young adult, but it hasn't grown out of "The Bachelor" franchise. Despite its bizarre dating rituals, low success rate, and questionable racial and gender politics, the stable of shows is, if anything, more popular than ever. Do people love "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," or do they love to hate it? It's unclear. But here at Here To Make Friends, we both love and love to hate them -- and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail.In this week's Here To Make Friends podcast, hosts Claire Fallon, Culture Writer, and Emma Gray, Senior Women's Editor, recap the eighth episode of "The Bachelorette," Season 11. We'll discuss Shawn's emotional freakout, the least dramatic two-on-one ever, Cupcake's sad exit and Chris Harrison's game-changing conversation with Kaitlyn.

    Years Of Tailored Blazers Kept Amy Schumer From ‘The Daily Show' - Huffington Post NEW!

        This past weekend we learned that Amy Schumer had turned down Comedy Central's offer to host "The Daily Show" because it felt too "safe," but that's not the whole story.  On Tuesday, the 34-year-old further explained her reasoning during an appearance on  Howard Stern's SiriusXM show. "It felt like it would be betting against myself," she said. "OK, this way I'm secure and I know I'll make [money] and I'll have this job ... but I'm like, 'No. I'm gonna bet on myself that I can do more.'" Schumer said she wasn't quick to turn down the offer, and even met with Jon Stewart over pizza to discuss the job, where she inquired about its perks. Ultimately, Schumer decided she simply wasn't right for it. "I think if I heard I was hosting 'The Daily Show,' I'd be like, ‘Oh, give me a fucking break!'" she told Stern, adding that the five years' worth of potential blazers kind of had something to do with it."But I just pictured all the fittings, like all the blazers I’d have to wear and I was like, 'I don’t want to do that,'" she explained to Stern. "I just thought, I don’t think it’s right for me. Trevor [Noah] will be so much better at it than I would ever have been."  Meanwhile, Schumer also spoke about one gig that she actually said agreed to -- opening for Madonna for three nights in New York City in September. The "Trainwreck" star told Stern that she's the first comedian to open for the Material Girl, but she doesn't have high hopes for it. "I really think that it will be a bad set. I'm going to try my hardest. I'm going to write some Madonna material, I'm going to practice. I'm going to do everything I can. Like you said, they're not here for me,"she said. "So I'm planning on just taking one to the chin every night, and then getting to see a Madonna show."  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Misty Copeland Is Officially The First Black Female Principal Dancer I... - Huffington Post NEW!

        History was made in the ballet world this week when soloist Misty Copeland was promoted to principal dancer, thereby becoming the first black female principal in the 75-year history of the American Ballet Theatre. Copeland, now 32 years old, has been dancing with the American Ballet Theatre for over 14 years, nearly eight as a soloist. Most recently, she starred as Odette/Odile in "Swan Lake" at the Met, a role dance critic Alastair Macaulay called "the most epic role in world ballet." "Two aspects of [Misty's] performance ... proved marvelous," Macaulay wrote in his review. "One: that it all happened successfully. Two: the curtain calls." Well, it's happening tomorrow! @abtofficial #swanlake with my awesome partner @jamesbwhiteside Lets get it boy!!! ❤️❤️❤️ A photo posted by Misty Copeland (@mistyonpointe) on Jun 23, 2015 at 3:06pm PDTCopeland's name is known far beyond the traditional confines of the ballet world, in part due to her emphatic openness regarding the problematic relationship between race and ballet. As Elizabeth Blair explained on NPR: "It's hard for any ballet dancer to succeed, regardless of race, but a black dancer is up against a centuries-old aesthetic -- the idea, for example, that the swan must be feather-weight and snow white, and so does her prince."Copeland's rise to fame, despite the centuries of tradition working against her, has served as an inspiration for young dancers who don't fit the mold around the world. During "Swan Lake," she repeatedly experienced cheers so intense they stopped the show, according to The New York Times. The ballerina is also the author of an illustrated children's book and a memoir, both elaborating on her journey overcoming the odds to pursue her passion. Both because of her immense talent and candor regarding her personal hopes and struggles, Copeland has become a heroine to young dancers around the world. She has over 516,000 followers on Instagram and her breathtaking ad for Under Armour received over eight million views on YouTube."Something that my mother instilled in me, as a biracial woman herself, and me being biracial, was that the world was going to view me as a black woman, no matter what I decided to do," Copeland said at the Time 100 gala, where she was honored. "I had no idea that that was going to be my truth at some point in my life, when I moved to New York City at 17 years old and joined American Ballet Theatre and realized I was the only African American woman in a company of 80 dancers." @geneschiavone photography @alexhammoudi #RomeoAndJuliet @abtofficial A photo posted by Misty Copeland (@mistyonpointe) on Jun 17, 2015 at 7:29pm PDTCopeland grew up in San Pedro, California, and took her first ballet classes for free at the Boys & Girls Club in the neighborhood. At the time, her family was living in a motel, part of a personal narrative that strays greatly from the traditional tale of a young ballerina. Copeland has said that she always hoped to rise to the level of principal, the highest status in a company. "My fears are that it could be another two decades before another black woman is in the position that I hold with an elite ballet company," she explains in her memoir. "That if I don’t rise to principal, people will feel I have failed them."Arthur Mitchell was the first African-American dancer to become a principal dancer, breaking grounds at the New York City Ballet in 1962. Years later in 1990, Lauren Anderson became the first African-American principal at the Houston Ballet. Anderson, along with Raven Wilkinson, a dancer and mentor of Copeland's, handed her bouquets on stage following her recent "Swan" performance. There has never before been a female black principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, until now. "Seven amazing dancers from American Ballet Theatre were promoted today," Kevin McKenzie, Artistic Director of the American Ballet Theatre explained in an email to the Huffington Post. "Each has demonstrated the talent and hard work needed to succeed in a highly competitive environment. I couldn't be prouder." We reached out to Misty Copeland for comment and have yet to hear back."I never saw a ballerina who looked like me before," Copeland has said. "And I’m here to be a vessel for all these brown ballerinas who have come before me." Congratulations, Misty, on a historical accomplishment, one that is sure to shape the future of ballet's diversity in ways we can only imagine. .articleBody div.feature-section, .entry div.feature-section{width:55%;margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto;} .articleBody span.feature-dropcap, .entry span.feature-dropcap{float:left;font-size:72px;line-height:59px;padding-top:4px;padding-right:8px;padding-left:3px;} div.feature-caption{font-size:90%;margin-top:0px;} -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Farewell, Peter Pan: The Inside Story of a Hollywood Legend - Huffington Post NEW!

        For a too brief time in my life, I got to spend time with Peter Pan. Not just any Peter Pan, either. Disney's Peter Pan, arguably the best known iteration of the classic fairy tale. We'll circle back to this presently.Let's talk about modern movies. Stick with me here. You've probably seen more than a few behind-the-scenes featurettes showing actors in skin-tight lycra suits with what appear to be ping-pong balls glued all over their bodies. The most famous of these oddly-dressed actors is probably Andy Serkis who, in addition to traditional roles, is Hollywood's premiere "motion capture artist." The little ping-pong balls all over Serkis' lycra suit in those making-of videos are recorded and tracked by computers and the digital information about Serkis' movements are applied to computer-generated animated characters such as Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, King Kong or Cornelius from the Planet of the Apes reboots. Motion capture is standard operating procedure in big-budget filmmaking today, not to mention nearly every video game released today. While the digital technology is often hit-or-miss, the animation achieved by digitally capturing actual human movements is about as "real" as it gets for big special effects movies.To whittle it down to its simplest explanation, motion capture is high tech puppetry.Back to Peter Pan.When I first met my wife, she'd go on and on about her adopted Uncle Roland who happened to have moved to Hawaii around the same time she had. Until she told me about what Roland had accomplished during his long life, I had no idea how profound an impact he had in the world of entertainment, not to mention the people whom he considered family.Roland Dupree, an only child, was born, Roland Furtado on September 20, 1925 to father, Antone Furtado of Portuguese descent, and Mother Theresa Dupuis, of French Canadian descent in Fall River, Massachusetts, by a midwife. Roland's first language was actually French, but he learned English and became an all-American talent and the family bread-winner at a very young age. After taking dance classes in his small town, and starting to stand out in local performances and venues, his family picked up and moved to Hollywood. There he quickly became a part of the "studio system" and was given contracts (and a new stage name, to sound like his mother's maiden name) with Universal Studios and MGM.Roland appeared in 26 live action films, most famously with A-listers like Shirley Temple in Miss Annie Rooney and Jimmy Stewart in Frank Capra's You Can't Take It With You. He also appeared in films with legends Donald O'Connor, Ann Miller, Dorothy Lamour, Bing Crosby and many others, and he built a reputation as a professional with rare talent, particularly in tap dance. Roland was known by industry colleagues as a "dancer's dancer," with delicate, lightning fast, and rich-sounding taps which were on many occasions used as "stunt taps" in film audio for higher profile actors and dancers with less impressive tap technique. Always innovating in style, and dance education and choreography, Roland became a teacher and choreographer for many other dancers themselves known for dance, including Juliette Prowse, ice skater and dancer Peggy Fleming, and '80s dance-craze Flashdance dance double, Marine Jahan. Roland's passion for teaching and choreography led him to develop a technique-driven national dance convention, Dupree Dance Expo (Now "Dupree Dance"), and brought him to a long and fruitful career of choreography and direction for television, stage, and screen. Some of his favorite choreography projects included the Rosemary Clooney Show, and staging his own trio for his Vegas stage show, The Dupree Trio.Rewinding back to the early 1950s, however, Roland's unrivaled dancing chops caught the eye of a filmmaker named Walt Disney.It turns out my wife's Uncle Roland was one of Hollywood's very first motion capture artists. In 1952, he was hired by Disney to perform all the movements for Peter Pan in the animated motion picture of the same name. (Actor Bobby Driscoll performed Peter Pan's voice, and it's been said that Peter Pan's animated face was based on Driscoll's, but I only see Roland's face.) Roland with Walt Disney.Before computer technology was available, motion capture was known as "rotoscoping." The process was developed by Disney and his imagineers who wanted to more realistically mimic human motion in cartoon animation. The process involved filming actual actors performing on a mostly empty sound stage. Once the film was developed and scenes were assembled, the footage was handed off to animators who would trace over each frame to create the animated cartoon version of the actor. Prior to rotoscoping, animated characters were rubbery and lacked the appearance of having bones and specific joints. With human actors as direct reference, Disney captured all of that in a way that was revolutionary for the industry, first applying it to the classic film Snow White.As someone who's spent a considerable number of years in the animation business, learning about this part of Roland's career was mind-blowing to me. I had personally used rotoscoping on several projects, years before knowing Roland, and, of course, I remember falling in love with the theatrical re-release of Peter Pan when I was a kid back in the 1970s. I'll never forget my wife first showing me one of the few remaining photographs of the film shoot, with Roland in the classic Pan costume, performing with the woman who played Wendy.Knowing this about Roland's career, I had an instant connection with him when we finally met for the first time at his home in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. I had a million questions for him about filming Peter Pan, of course (Disney himself, Roland told me, was aloof), but beyond that, I thoroughly admired the fact that Roland was one of the few child actors in Hollywood who never crashed and burned after flirting with a little bit of success. Hearing about his other career accomplishments outside of Peter Pan, it was obvious that Roland had a savvy for business and a tenacity for success that's so often lacking among celebrities, especially ones that started out as children. All told, Roland worked successfully in the business he loved deep into his 80s. On a personal level, some of you might've read in The Daily Banter's MEMBERS ONLY section about all of my various housing problems in Hawaii (see my multi-part series "Living in Hawaii with Dogs"). Throughout all of it, Roland was a mensch. Not only did he take the time to hear us complain endlessly about this landlord or that Craig's List nightmare, but he was so incredibly generous financially as we exhausted our resources in one move after another (we never asked, but he always offered). One thing was always certain, Roland invariably made me laugh out loud with his dry wit and laid-back charm, even when I nearly had a nervous breakdown trying hilariously and unsuccessfully to hook up a new widescreen television in his house and to subsequently connect the television to Netflix, as well as to his antiquated home theater unit.This man who I loved and admired so much -- the great Peter Pan -- died this past Sunday, June 21, of natural causes, and I never got to say goodbye. When he moved back to New Mexico late last year, I dropped him off at the airport for his final flight (not pixie dust this time), and that was the last time we embraced. Driving home from the Kona airport, I choked up a little in the car as I passed his street, but I had no idea that it was the last time I'd get to bear-hug this legendary, beautiful man.Roland Dupree wasn't a household name. But "legendary" fits. As a performer, a teacher and as a real life success story, he deserves to be remembered and honored among Hollywood's greatest not only because of what he accomplished, but how he accomplished it -- with style, grace, tenacity and a colossal sense of humor. And now, whenever I see a big Summer blockbuster movie, loaded with motion capture animation, I'm always going to think of Roland. Always. But more than that, I'm going to remember the last five years of my life with ceaseless warmth, love and sentimentality, in great part because I got to spend time with Peter Pan._______________Subscribe for free to the Bob & Chez Show podcast with special thanks to Angie DiPietro.Cross-posted at The Daily Banter. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
