Mexico Pulls Out of Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant

Trump's beauty pageants are in deep trouble

Donald Trump called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “drug dealers.” Now, the country’s pageant organizers have decided they won’t send contestants to Trump’s Miss Universe pageant.

Two weeks after the real estate mogul angered many Mexicans with inflammatory remarks about immigrants to the United States, Mexican media conglomerate Televisa, which sends contestants to the pageant for the country, said in a statement that it would not be taking part in Miss Universe.

But that’s not the only Trump beauty contest losing support from its participants. The hosts of the Miss USA pageant, Thomas Roberts and Cheryl Burke, quit on Tuesday. Burke, a former contestant on Dancing with the Stars, singled out Trump’s comments in a Facebook post:

The latest double blow to Trump’s beauty pageant franchise comes a day after NBC announced it was not going to air Miss USA “due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants.” Spanish language network Univision announced earlier it too would not air the pageant, for the same reasons.

Trump is now suing Univision for $500 million under the First Amendment for, the suit said, a “politically motivated attempt to suppress Mr. Trump’s freedom of speech … as he begins to campaign for the nation’s presidency.”

Trump said at his campaign launch for the Republican presidential nomination that immigrants coming across the Mexican border were “rapists” and insinuated immigrants were drug dealers; he has proposed building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border that he would make the Mexican government pay for.

And the outspoken entrepreneur does not seem eager to back down. On Tuesday, he took to his Twitter account to reiterate his claims about the country south of the border:

The pageant is set to continue in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 12.

Underwood is the most decorated CMT Award winner with 13 awards

The CMT Music Awards should be renamed the Carrie Music Television Awards.

Carrie Underwood cleaned house at the country awards show Wednesday with three wins, including video of the year for “Something In the Water,” and she even gave a shout-out to her 3-month-old son.

“This is my first awards show since little Isaiah has been in the world,” said Underwood, who gave birth in late February and sported a skin-tight white dress. “I’m sure he’s napping on the bus right now, but I should definitely say that he has already inspired me so much as well as has my husband, Mike.”

The show in Nashville, Tennessee, marked Underwood’s fourth consecutive victory for video of the year.

The 32-year-old songstress, who also performed, is the most decorated CMT Award winner with 13 awards, including six for video of the year. She walked into the Bridgestone Arena with five nominations — she was the leader — and also won female video of the year for “Something In the Water” and collaborative video of the year for “Somethin’ Bad” with Miranda Lambert. She earned two nominations for both video of the year and female video of the year.

While country stars, from Luke Bryan to Florida Georgia Line, dominated the awards show, a video skit about rushing to the CMT Awards starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Alan Jackson, Steven Tyler, Rick Springfield, Tom Arnold and Justin Bieber, who said he loved Bryan in the clip.

“Yeah, Bieber loves me,” Bryan said onstage when he won male video of the year for “Play It Again.”

Bryan was just one of the many performers, and he worked the crowd when he sang “Kick the Dust Up,” the first single from his hotly anticipated new album, “Kill the Lights,” due out Aug. 7.

Lady Antebellum kicked off the CMT Music Awards with the help of Grammy-winning DJ-producer Zedd. The venue was full of hands pumping in the air, explosive blasts and beaming lights as Zedd — known for the hits “Clarity” and “Break Free” with Ariana Grande — played piano and backed the country trio, who performed Zedd’s “Beautiful Now” in between their own song, “Long Stretch of Love.”

Lady A later won group video of the year.

“We also want to thank the beautiful, amazing Kate Upton and Tony Hale for being a part of this video,” Hillary Scot said of the actors, who appeared in the clip for “Bartender.”

Jason Aldean and Bob Seger won CMT performance of the year for their performance of “Turn the Page” from their “CMT Crossroads” special.

“This is really cool ’cause this was a song that I played in the clubs for years and to get a chance to perform this with (Bob) onstage, I mean this was a dream come true for me,” Aldean said.

Florida Georgia Line, who performed outside, won duo video of the year for “Dirt,” while Sam Hunt — who scored two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with “Take Your Time” and “Leave the Night On,” won breakthrough video of the year for the latter.

Hunt also hit the stage, and other performers included Reba McEntire, Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Keith Urban, whose wife, Nicole Kidman, sang along as he strummed his guitar. Jake Owen started his colorful, summery performance of “Real Life” on top of an airbed that surfed above the crowd.

Schwarzenegger, NFL player J. J. Watt, Billy Ray Cyrus, David Spade, Norman Reedus from “The Walking Dead,” Hunter Hayes and Rumer Willis, who recently won “Dancing With the Stars,” were among the presenters at the show, hosted by Erin Andrews and Britney Snow.

Underwood’s win for video of the year beat Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk on a Plane,” Florida Georgia Line’s “Dirt,” Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down” and Bryan’s “Play It Again.”

Clint Eastwood to Direct Biopic of ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Pilot

Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger captain of the US Airways flight #5149 that landed in New York's Hudson River in 2009, poses in his office at his home in Danville, Calif on Jan. 10. 2011.
Paul Sakuma—AP Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger captain of the US Airways flight #5149 that landed in New York's Hudson River in 2009, poses in his office at his home in Danville, Calif on Jan. 10. 2011.

Capt. 'Sully' Sullenberger famously landed an Airbus A320 in the Hudson River

In 2011 it was J. Edgar Hoover; in 2014, ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle. Now, director Clint Eastwood seems to have found his next all-American protagonist: Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the pilot who safely landed an Airbus A320 in New York City’s Hudson River in 2009.

Eastwood is set to direct the as-yet-unnamed biopic on the now-retired airline pilot, lauded as a national hero after the so-called “Miracle on the Hudson,” when he was forced to land US Airways Flight 1549 on water after a flock of Canadian geese disabled both of his engines following its takeoff from LaGuardia Airport.

The film is based on the New York Times bestselling memoir Sullenberger co-authored with Wall Street Journal columnist Jeffrey Zaslow: Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters.

If the film does nearly as well as Eastwood’s American Sniper, which grossed upwards of $543 million worldwide in 2014, it’ll be a smooth landing indeed.

Watch 100 Years of Filipina Beauty and History in Less Than Two Minutes

The country's rich history has heavily influenced style and beauty trends

The folks over at Cut Video have released the sixth episode of 100 Years of Beauty, taking us not just through a century of beauty in the Philippines, but of Filipino history too.

The video begins with the Spanish-American War at the turn of the century, when indigenous women were adorned with tribal tattoos and shell headpieces.

After U.S. took control of the country, American trends began to heavily influence Filipino beauty. By the 1920s and ’30s, women were inspired by jazz and the silver screen — glamorous updos with heavy makeup became in vogue until Japanese occupation began during World War II.

After the war, the Philippine’s film industry boomed and mestiza (half-Filipino half-Caucasian) actresses set the trend for red lips and rosy cheeks.

America kept influencing beauty trends throughout the ’60s, with big bouffant hair inspired by Jackie O and Imelda Marcos, the wife of Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos, moving to the hippie style of the ’70s.

By the 2000s people turned to Korean music and television for style and beauty trends and long straight hair became popular. As the video fast-forwards to present day, K-pop and American culture still dominate women’s styles with full wavy hair and dark brows.

Watch Jeremy Renner Sing About His Hawkeye Feelings on The Tonight Show

To the tune of Ed Shereen’s “Thinking Out Loud"

Fighting with a stick and a string from the paleolithic era isn’t much when you’re brawling alongside Iron Man, Hulk and Thor. So last night, during an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Jeremy Renner took to the stage to sing about the very human archer he plays in Avengers: Age of Ultron... promising that he can do more than just archery.

Sitting at a piano adorned with a bow and arrow (and wearing his iconic Hawkeye costume), Renner poured his heart out about being a well-loved but oft-forgotten member of the team. “Will the people believe that I’m not quite as tough? Will anyone even notice me?” Renner sang to the tune of Ed Shereen’s “Thinking Out Loud.” As the actor mused about the simpler things in life—like having a collection of scarves and berets, owning water-resistant socks, and getting free guac at Chipotle—a hilarious assortment of images played on a screen behind him, showing “Hawkeye” doing everyday activities like opening a pickle jar and playing Mario Kart.

Renner closed out his performance by reminding the world, “I’m friggin’ Hawkeye, maybe I’m as super as a star.” You can find out yourself in the next Avengers movie, which hits theaters May 1.

Wallenda, a seventh-generation highwire performer who famously walked a tightrope between two Chicago skyscrapers last year, will once again attempt the walk without a harness or a safety net. He plans to perform the stunt on April 29.

“My whole life is about facing death in the eyes,” Wallenda said at a news conference, according to NBC News. “Do I think of death? Often.”

The Orlando Eye’s management celebrated the announcement on Facebook, calling it a “stunt for the ages.”

Identical Triplets in Brazil Get Married at the Same Wedding

They wore matching dresses too

It’s not every day you see three brides walk down the same aisle in the same dress and same hair style.

And yet, that was the case for Rafaela, Rochele and Tagiane Bini, who all got married at the same time at the Nossa Senhora Aparecida Catholic cathedral in their hometown of Passo Fundo, Brazil on Saturday, according to a BBC video.

The 29-year-old brides didn’t plan to match hairstyles or makeup. In fact, they went to their appointments with the intention of not matching.

“We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same one,” Rochele told the Daily Mail. “It’s not even worth trying, it always ends up like that.”

The female guests were pleased to have three opportunities to catch the bouquets, which matched the color of each of the 18 bridesmaid’s dresses to the corresponding bride.

The only thing that helped their guests and grooms – Rafael, Gabriel and Eduardo – distinguish between them was their different colored bouquets.

The brides admit to sometimes deliberately confusing their fiancés, said Rafael, who married Rafaela.

But on their wedding day, they didn’t have a problem spotting their true loves.

“Oh yes, I knew which one was mine, for sure. I knew as soon as she entered the church, she was the most beautiful,” Eduardo, who married Tagiane, told the news outlet.

Rafaela met Rafael 10 years ago in college, and a year later Rochele met her future husband Gabriel. After Tagiane and Eduardo got engaged, their parents, Pedro and Salete, suggested that the girls get married together.

When it came time to decide how Pedro was going to walk all three daughters down the aisle at once, it was settled that he would walk halfway down the aisle with all three and then take one at a time to the altar.

Pedro walked Tagiane, the first born, down the aisle first.

“I tried to hold back my emotion, but I couldn’t,” Tagiane admitted. “To see my dad there, at that moment, was a feeling I can’t explain.”

Monopoly Turns 80: Everything You Didn’t Know About the Iconic Game

Monopoly Game 1935
Hasbro Monopoly Game 1935

The longest official game of Monopoly lasted 70 days

On Thursday, Monopoly celebrates its birthday. Can you guess what number birthday it is? No?

Well, it’s a big one: The game that brought families together – and then slowly tore them apart – with the healing power of capitalism is turning 80 this year. To celebrate, the good folks at Hasbro have provided us with not only scads of trivia about the game, but some photos that show how the now-iconic board game has evolved over the years. Enjoy, and do not collect $200.

Monopoly Game 1936

The game’s inventor, Charles Darrow, first developed Monopoly in 1933, from materials in his own home: the cards were handwritten, and the houses and hotels were made from scraps of wooden molding.

Monopoly Popular Edition Game 1936

Parker Brothers initially rejected the game for “52 fundamental errors” that included the game’s length, theme and complexity. After Darrow successfully sold the game at local Philadelphia department stores, the company reconsidered and negotiated the rights to the game.

Monopoly in 1957

Within a year of its release in the U.S. (it was initially sold for $2), 35,000 copies of the game were being made per week. To date, it’s been published in 47 languages, sold in 114 countries and played by over 1 billion people worldwide. There have been more than 300 licensed versions of the game, including a Braille version and one made from chocolate.

Monopoly in 1962

The longest official game of Monopoly lasted a nightmarish 70 days. The largest took place in 2008, when nearly 3,000 fans united to play the game at the same time. The most expensive version of the game was created by San Francisco jeweler Sidney Mobell in 1998 for $2 million.

Monopoly in 1976

The first Monopoly World Championships took place in 1973 in Liberty, New York. The winner was Lee Bayrd, of the U.S. The last time someone from the U.S. won the World Championships was in 1974. Since then, the games have been held in locations like Tokyo, Monte Carlo and Toronto. The 2015 Monopoly World Championships will be held in Macau, China.

It would be nice if someone could bring the championship back to the U.S. for the game’s 80th birthday. Maybe it’s you.

Kendrick Lamar Just Dropped His New Album, To Pimp a Butterfly

The album was supposed to be released on March 23

Kendrick Lamar surprised the music world just before midnight on Sunday by dropping his new album, To Pimp a Butterfly, a week early.

With little fanfare, and in similar fashion to Drake’s album release in February, Lamar simply tweeted out the album title along with a link to the iTunes purchasing interface. The album was slated for release on March 23.

There may, however, have been some miscommunication between Lamar’s Top Dawg label and Interscope Records. Top Dawg CEO Anthony Tiffith let loose with an expletive-filled Twitter rant aimed directly at Interscope, who did not respond but did retweet Lamar’s original release post.

In early February Lamar released the track “The Blacker the Berry,” which you can listen to below.
