Celebrities Stick It To Donald Trump With Dramatic Rendition Of 'I Will Survive'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
At first we were afraid, we were petrified, kept thinking this was yet another mashup of celebrities dramatically reading lyrics to a famous song. Actually, that’s exactly what this is, but there’s something about a video compilation of this year’s Oscar front-runners belting out “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration that captures the sprit of this political moment.  As part of W Magazine’s Best Performance Issue, stars like Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Ruth Negga, Chris Pine, Taraji P. Henson, Matthew McConaughey, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Dev Patel and more gathered to perform everybody’s favorite fight song.  “[It’s] the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood, many members of which were outspoken Hillary Clinton supporters over the past year,” W explains. “And a few of whom have found themselves on the unfriendly end of Donald Trump’s Twitter account.”  Watch the full video above.  -- This feed and ...

Huffington Post - about 2 months
2016 was a bad year. We know it. It's been written everywhere. The world is in complete disarray. Even if you voted for Trump, you have to agree with that. Celebrity deaths were too much to handle.

Here are my personal favorite things about the year in film, television, and music in no particular order. Share your own below. Here's hoping 2017 is better. Believe in hope. 1.

The Cinema Year That Was: Zaki's Flick Picks 2016
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Read on to see my personal picks for my favorite cinematic experiences for the calendar year that's now closing. There were some very strong offerings this year, and there are plenty of flicks that just missed the cut, but here's what I ended up putting in my top ten: 10 - Weiner This fascinating documentary uses the fall-rise-fall arc of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner to make some very pointed observations about our media culture and its intermingling of our politics. Given Weiner's tangential role in the closing days of this past election, with his sex scandal arguably becoming one more of the asterisks next to Donald Trump's election, this film has taken on an entirely different context in the closing months of the year than it did at the start. All of that makes it even more required viewing for students of both politics and media. (Click here for my interview with the filmmakers behind Weiner.) 9 - Star Trek Beyond "Better to die saving lives than to liv ...

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Comic-Con fan who doesn’t appreciate a well-crafted costume. But, truth be told, these costumes are usually exciting hero outfits.

The Best Celebrity Haircuts Of 2016 (So Far)
Huffington Post - 5 months
By Liza Corsillo for GQ. Getting the approval of style-minded guys these days (and, well, us) takes more than great personal style. It also takes some serious grooming game. This is especially true for the world's leading men, who spend their days and nights basking in the limelight. After all, fame comes with responsibilities, like staying ahead of the curve when it comes to hair trends. It's a simple thing to expect when you realize these guys have some of the best hands in the business sculpting their perfect ’dos. In fact, without them how would you, or any guy, know what kind of haircut to ask for? And whose photo would you bring to the barber, for that matter? The good news is that this year has already gifted us with a fresh batch of hair gods, and more are soon to come (i.e., when Jon Snow comes back to life) as 2016 rolls on. To get you started, here are 2016's very best famous haircuts, so far. OSCAR ISAAC, THE WAVY GENTLEMAN RYAN GOSLING, THE OLD HOLLYWOOD HA ...

Wonder Woman Is Officially Queer
Huffington Post - 5 months
It’s time to welcome Wonder Woman to the DC Comics’ growing circle of LGBT superheroes.  Writer Greg Rucka confirmed that Wonder Woman, otherwise known as Diana of Themyscira, is queer in an interview with Comicosity. Rucka said the decision to depict the character as such was only “logical,” given that her island home, Themyscira, is inhabited only by women, which can be interpreted by some as a “queer culture.”  “It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able… to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship,” he said. “And the only options are women.” As to whether or not Wonder Woman has been in love and had relationships with other women, he added, “As [artist Nicola Scott] and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes. And it needs to be yes for a number of reasons.”  The news probably comes as little surprise to Wonder Woman fans, as there have been varying theories around the character’s sexuality for so ...
