    Miley Cyrus And Stella Maxwell Go Wild For W Magazine - Huffington Post 2 hours ago

        Miley Cyrus and Stella Maxwell sure know how to have a good time. The 22-year-old singer and 24-year-old model posed for an upcoming W magazine spread (shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott) and judging by the Instagram photos Cyrus shared, things got pretty wild. In one photo, the "Wrecking Ball" singer is seen lying on a shag carpet (obviously) with silver glitter dusted all over her body. She's dressed in a leather bustier top and sequin boy shorts, which are pulled down halfway. A man's feet (Alas, according to the caption) are seen in the frame on either side of the star's body, suggesting that he's standing over her, watching as she caresses her body. This is pretty risqué stuff, you guys.  @mertalas @mahhhc this is how we party @wmag @edward_enninful #lagang A photo posted by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on Aug 3, 2015 at 9:55am PDTIn another shot, Cyrus is photographed with Maxwell, who's shoving a piece of cake into the performer's mouth. Oh, and of course, she's topless. (The creative director for the shoot clearly took inspiration's from Boregore's "Decisions" video.) The former "Hannah Montana" star also cozies up to a large stuffed bear in another shot.  This is how we party!!! @mertalas @mahhhc @stellamaxwell #lagang @wmag @edward_enninful A photo posted by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on Aug 3, 2015 at 9:56am PDTThe spread, which seemingly took place at a "secret party" in LA,  includes top models like Joan Smalls, Anna Ewers and Emily Ratajkowski, but cover girl Gigi Hadid is noticeably absent. Though, she probably wouldn't have had much fun anyways, since she's "kind of a grandma." Also on HuffPost: For a constant stream of entertainment news and discussion, follow HuffPost Entertainment on Viber. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Get ready for Lord Dominator, Wander Over Yonder's new extreme bad guy... - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        It was Rudyard Kipling who said it best (in rhyming couplets, no less): "The female of the species is more deadly than the male."And if you want animated proof of this proposition, then I suggest that you tune in to Wander Over Yonder tonight. Which is when Lord Dominator -- a brand-new female fiend -- makes her debut on Disney XD at 9 p.m. ET / PT as this Annie Award-winning series kicks off its second season."And why is Wander adding a new villain to its canvas?," you ask. According to series creator / executive producer Craig McCracken, it was basically because Lord Hater (i.e., Wander Over Yonder's original antagonist) wasn't seen as a real threat."As Season 1 unfolded and Hater revealed himself to be more of a misdirected, lovable goof and not really a REAL bad guy, we knew that we had to introduce a serious and legit villain to shake things up and throw our whole goofy show back on its heels," McCracken explained during a recent interview. "After a whole season of having Wander handily defeat / befriend Lord Hater at every turn, it became hard to take him seriously as a credible threat.""So we made that literal: After wasting an entire year of his life chasing Wander around, the entire galaxy would now think that Lord Hater was a joke. Especially if a bigger, badder bad guy suddenly swooped in and was, you know, actually a bad guy," Craig continued. "Introducing this element is Season Two would also help reinforce one of the main threads of our show: Wander proving that Lord Hater actually has some good in him. And one of the clearest ways of doing that is by putting him next to a more evil, nastier threat."Mind you, in this case, the badder bad guy -- when all of their armor gets stripped away -- is revealed to be a bad gal. So was this done because McCracken -- like Kipling -- was looking to make a comment about " ... the female of the species" ? Craig says no. That this new character was added to Wander Over Yonder's cast strictly for story-driven reasons."Part of the appeal of making Dominator a -- let's say 'enthusiastic' female character -- was the chance to create a real, unapologetically wicked villainess while still having this character be lively, vital, energetic, and fun," McCracken enthused. "Lord Dominator's gender is not what defines her. If male characters can be all things then it follows that female characters can be all things as well." "Lord Dominator's not the wicked stepmother or the old crone. She's not the secondary villain or the 'girl villain' or the main villian's girlfriend. She's THE BAD GUY," Craig continued. "And if you know anything about Lord Hater, you know that -- deep down -- all of his posturing and bluster comes from Lord Hater's desperate desire for people to like him. And he's such a narrow-minded lunkhead that we knew introducing a better villain who happened to be a girl would really throw Lord Hater for a loop on a couple of levels."And given that -- according to McCracken -- Lord Dominator had to be " ... tougher than Sylvia, more cunning than Commander Peepers, more evil than Lord Hater, and is as excited about doing evil as Wander is about doing good" ... Well, not just any voice actor could bring this new Wander Over Yonder character to life. Craig knew that he needed someone who was actually up to this voice-acting challenge. Which is why he reached out to Saturday Night Live alum Noel Wells. Who signed on as soon as she read the teleplay for "The Greater Hater" (i.e., the episode of Wander Over Yonder that actually introduces the Lord Dominator character)."Basically, Wander Over Yonder is one of the best written shows on television. Just my audition sides alone were better than 99 percent of the on-camera auditions I go on. The scripts are fantastic, and Lord Dominator is a fully developed, 3-dimensional female character, which are like Yetis in movies in television. Everyone WANTS to see them but no one ever does," Wells stated. "So I feel super honored that I got to do it. Plus, this is my first recurring animated character on television, and who doesn't want to do that?!"Just to be clear here: When it comes to voicing Lord Dominator, Noel actually shares this role with Fred Tatasciore. Whenever Wander's new villainess is locked away inside of her armor, it's Fred who'll be reading Lord's lines. But as soon as Dominator unmasks, it's Wells who then does all the talking."The way we handle Lord Dominator's voice is that we'll have Noel come in first and get the performance that we want," Craig explained. "Then Fred will come in and dub over her lines to match the nuances of her reads.""Noel's delivery really is key to this character. The director and I wanted to match her cadence as much as possible; especially when Lord Dominator is monologuing to herself," Fred said. "Lord Dominator turns into something else when she 'suits up.' Her imperious speech patterns come out more aggressively as she addresses the world, playing the part of a cruel overlord. That's when -- as I'm voicing this character -- I'll change the cadence. But it always goes back to Noel. It's really fun matching her word for word when I'm doing Lord Dominator's voice."You wanna get a sense of how Wells & Tatasciore combine to create the voice of what McCracken calls " ... MOST EXTREME version of a villain we could think of" ? Check out this Wander Over Yonder Season 2 sizzle reel. Which Disney Television Animation screened for Comic-Con attendees last month in San Diego.And just so you know: "The Greater Hater" -- which debuts tonight on Disney XD at 9 p.m. ET / PT -- is the first installment of a four-part story arc, which includes a musical Wander Over Yonder episode written by composer Andy Bean.So if you want to see how Wander (i.e., the biggest optimist in the universe) and Lord Hater (i.e., a dork who's pretending to be way cooler than he actually is) deal with a more evil, nastier bad guy who just happens to be a gal, be sure and catch the premiere of Season 2 of this acclaimed animated series. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Poet's Viral Video Wants To Help You Find Love On The Subway - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Next time you're on the platform, waiting for the Q train to come alive, begging your phone for cell service, sweating your brains out and hating everyone around you -- take a moment to look around at the beautiful strangers around you. Who knows, you could end your morning commute like these two lovebirds. Today's piece of visual poetry, titled "Subway Love," is brought to you by Brooklyn-based poet Max Stossel and cinematographer Matthew Freidell. The uplifting short, which has over 150,000 views on YouTube, turns a mundane subway trip into a whimsical tango between potential lovers.Stossel came up with the concept while waiting at the West 4th Street stop and realizing the ridiculousness of the subway ritual. "It was one of those times where it was taking forever and it was hot and sweaty and more and more people came and it got hotter and sweatier," he told the Daily Mail. "And all of the sudden I had this realization that we were 250 people staring into a tunnel."What if, Stossel asks, we paid attention to the myriad people around us? Could we learn something new? Make a friend? Fall in love?As the poem reads:If we would only turn and face each other we might catch eyes and to our surprise the anguish of waiting might subside. We might not be so terrified of being late to work this time. Our jobs that make us sigh and cry we might stop and reanalyze. We might, I hope, even decide that we can make better use of our time. We could enjoy this mariachi band. Come, take my hand and let's pretend these fluorescents are the moon and this grimy subway floor the sand. Let's just dance.Anyone who's ever dreamed of finding love on the subway, this is for you.  Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    What Happened After I Watched Brokeback Mountain With My Straight Fath... - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        In honor of the 10th anniversary of the movie Brokeback Mountain, I share this story of how the film changed my life as a young gay man.The room was stifling. Even with every fan going, the air just crawled from one humid pocket of the house's atmosphere to the other, losing none of its oppressive, southern Mississippi moisture. My father and my stepmother sat together on a love seat, their cigarette smoke -- Marlboro Reds, ironically enough -- a steady stream until it hit the hurricane brewing above us. I watched from the couch as the smoke trailed steadily in the glow of a table side lamp before breaking off in a gust from a fan blade. "Let's watch a movie," my stepmother said. My father and I lazily agreed, too tired from the day's work of clearing ground around his new house -- pushing over trees with a front-end loader, stacking lumber, exploring an old concrete foundation as a possible workshop. Freshly married, my father was all set to build a new Southern playground for himself, complete with a small catfish pond, a pasture for horses and a winding dirt road back to the highway that was our main artery to civilization. Now, despite the lingering evening heat, the two of us lounged in the satisfaction that hard work often brings to men young and old in the South. It had been like any other day together -- tearing down, building up, shaping and reshaping land according to some master design locked away inside his head. This was our "quality" time, and despite the blisters and my clumsiness at operating heavy machinery, I cherished it. "I like this," said my stepmother again. "Have you seen it?" The remote highlighted a movie title -- Brokeback Mountain. My father said nothing. I merely nodded. "Let's watch it," she said and pressed play. So began the most paralyzing two hours of my life. I had come out to my father a short time before. He was the only person I came out to over the phone -- I was too afraid to do it in person. He listened to me -- he told me he didn't agree with that "lifestyle," but he told me he loved me and would always love me. I assured him that I would never talk about my life as a gay man with him, unless he asked -- perhaps a little cowardly on my part at the time. But I said I was a son who had been raised never to lie to those I loved -- no matter the consequences. And he agreed. Fast forward to that smoky, lazy evening, and my father was about to watch his first gay movie with his very gay son. My stepmother had been pushing him to talk to me more about my social life, dating, my campus activism. We had circled the issue like branches floating by on creek water. Now, apparently, was our time to dive in. The beginning was harmless enough as my eyes fixed the TV screen, not daring to look over at them. The tent sex scene passed with a frightening lack of comment. I felt the color rise in my cheeks as "I wish I knew how to quit you" boomed out of the surround sound speakers and hung like an accusation in that tepid Southern air. And Enis's journey to Jack's parents' house against that jaundiced Western sky -- a last chance to say goodbye to a lover violently ripped from this life as much by hate as the painful, prolonged hesitation that hung like a specter over the lives of the two men. It was the same specter that haunted many gay men and women 10 years ago when the movie was made, and it was the same specter that haunted me four years ago on that coach in lower Mississippi as my father wordlessly reached for his ashtray and the movie faded to black. "Well that was sad," said my stepmother. "Yes it was," my father said. I made some half-voiced comment and excused myself to bed. The next day, my father and I continued our work. We were building a fence and took turns digging holes for the posts. During his break, he talked to me about the movie. When I was young, he had bred and raised horses with my mother in Alabama and described to me the different breeds he had seen in the film last night. I nodded patiently, pushing post hole diggers into hard clay, wondering with instinctual terror where this was going. He told me of Bama, a horse that had been born on our small farm. He said Bama was the most beautiful foal he had ever seen, with a supple red mane tipped with white in some places. He had been bred from an actual registered horse, and my father knew one day he would grow into an amazing rider. Apparently, that enthusiasm got the best of him. Despite what my mother told him, despite all he knew, he started to try and break Bama before he was old enough. He began slowly to his credit, but even after Bama was a yearling he started to ride the young horse. Another year or two passed, the horse's bones set, and it was evident -- the foal was knock-kneed. The beautiful red-manned horse, rushed too early into life at the excitement of its potential, had matured stunted and deformed. Soon after, Bama was sold to breed. My father never saw him again. I finished the hole and handed the diggers back to my father. "You know, son," he said. "You will always have me. No matter what, you will always have me." We worked into the dusk, taking turns along the fence that would one day guard his new home. Many months passed before I made the connection between Bama and Brokeback Mountain. As scared as I was of sharing my gay life with my father, my father was just as scared. Not because he held any particular prejudice -- although I suspect some lurked there -- but because, like Bama, he was afraid to do anything that might stop me from growing. He had chosen distance not out of hate or ignorance, but out of the sincere terror that if he dared to question or to understand, he might push me away. He did not fear my queerness. He feared losing me -- that awful pit of loss that comes when you must let go of something beautiful with the knowledge that you could have saved it. Perhaps the Southerner, the horse farmer, the husband and father saw in that last scene of regret -- of Enis looking at that blue jean jacket and mountain photo -- a possible future for the loved ones in his own life. And it frightened him. Whatever he was, whatever he believed, he did not want to raise another Bama. So the silence between us that my stepmother carefully cracked by playing Brokeback Mountain has slowly collapsed between us ever since. Sometimes we talk about gay politics. Sometimes we talk about the stories I have written in publications like this one. But now, so distant am I now in the deep rumblings of Brooklyn -- away from the smoggy tranquility of hot summers in Mississippi -- he has finally begun to ask me about my "social" life. Who I have met, who I have come to know, who -- if anyone -- makes me happy. He has begun to lose his fear and start to know my life. Out of his patience, we have grown stronger together. A journey we began after an innocent movie night has started to reveal the men we have both become -- and would still like to be. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
