‘SING’ Comes in strong at #2 at the Box Office!
Can we all just SING! Universal's Sing has topped $20 million in its first two days in release as it enters the three-day weekend. Sony's Passengers brought in an estimated $3.2 million yesterday as its three-day cume climbs to $7.3 million and Fox's Assassin's Creed took third place at Thursday's box office with approximately $2.87 million and its cume now stands at $7.5 million after two days in release.
"This is a great launching point," said Universal distribution chief Nick Carpou. "We will continue to play extraordinarily well today and throughout this week, as well as into the New Year. For Illumination's second original film of the year after The Secret Life of Pets, this is a really impressive start."
In North America, Sing opened Wednesday in North America opposite Passengers and Assassin's Creed, followed by a slew of other films on Friday and again on Christmas Day.

New Music Video from Sammie – Impatient
Before we get too caught up with the holidays, Sammie gets right to it with the sleek music video for his sexy bedroom jam “Impatient,” off his new EP I’m Him.
Pulling up in his black Bentley, the R&B crooner gets cozy with his leading lady, attempting to restrain their sexual urges, the two lovers quickly take things inside where they make love against a brick wall.
“If you’re horny let’s do it / Ride it get right to it / My saddle’s been waitin’ / I want you I’m so impatient … Just sayin, ain’t playin, I want you I’m so impatient,” he sings.
“When it came time to create ‘Impatient’ the creative process was so organic along side my producer Doh Boy,” Sammie previously told ThisisRnB. “I wanted something bold and to the point, a blend of the current sounds of R&B mixed with the ’90s vibe so it felt familiar. Something sensual to set the mood for my female listeners with a bounce that would grasp the attention of my male following. ‘Impatient’ is for everybody. Simply sexy.”

Hip Hop News: Troy Ave Shot Twice On Christmas Day
Troy Ave was shot once again. Just months after being charged with attempted murder at a May concert in Manhattan, the rapper, whose real name is Roland Collins, was reportedly shot twice while on his way to visit his family on Christmas Day.
The New York MC was at an intersection in Brooklyn at approximately 4 p.m. Sunday (Dec. 25). According to The New York Times, that’s when an unidentified man approached Ave’s Maserati and began firing multiple rounds. Troy was hit twice — one bullet struck his arm, another grazed his head. Ave then crashed his car into a parked vehicle.
He was hospitalized and treated for the wounds at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center. So far, there is no description of the shooter and no arrests have been made, as officials continue investigating the situation.
50 Cent visited the rapper, who he once had a feud with, in the hospital. He posted a photo beside Ave and updated fans on his status. “Dope boy Troy all good,” he wrote. “Merry Christmas.”
In May, Troy was involved in a shooting at Manhattan’s Irving Plaza, where T.I. was slated to perform. He was reportedly shot that night, and was seen firing a weapon in surveillance footage. In June, Troy pled not guilty to attempted second-degree murder and other counts. By August, he sued Live Nation for an alleged security breach.
Out on $500,000 bond, Troy released White Christmas 4, the fourth installment in his mixtape series, prior to the shooting on Friday (Dec. 24).

Over the Christmas holidays, an unidentified man claimed he was sick of keeping their relationship quiet and even threatened to release a sextape of the two of them together to prove Jordan is gay.
The man posted under the user name tradeatl23475, claiming, "So you gonna keep acting like we not Effing @michaelbjordan ?? You want to hide in the closet but wasn’t acting like that when I was busting on them cakes. You told me you loved me when I was deep inside you now you want to act brand new. How you gonna treat me like this after all I do for you. I held you down when you wasn’t getting no work. Don’t front like you haven’t been flying me out to Sherman Oaks to see you, You live off Nobel Ave remember????"
He went on to write, "We can do this all day until you admit that you’re gay. You can front for as many people as you like but I know the truth because you was letting me blow that back out. Wait till I release our sex tape,then everyone will get to see how much big black co*k you really like."
Tradeatl12345 continued, "Why don’t you tell everybody the real reason why you never had a girlfriend is because your di*k is way too little that’s why you like taking it up the a*s . He didn’t have to come to this but the fact that you keep denying me you act like you Jackie and Cory wasn’t running trains of me. So you going to sit there and act like you didn’t tell me you were scared that Tony gave you a HIV."
Jordan has appeared on television as Vince Howard in "Friday Night Lights", teen drug-dealer Wallace in "The Wire", and Alex in "Parenthood."
Michael also starred in films such as "Fruitvale Station", "Fantastic Four", "Creed", "Chronicle", and "That Awkward Moment."
Charlie Hunnam ghosted his girlfriend for five months because ‘Method acting’?
The Lost City of Z was always going to be a troubled production, I think. Brad Pitt and his production company Plan B were working for years to put the film together, and Brad was supposed to star at one point. At another point, Benedict Cumberbatch was cast but he eventually dropped out as the production start date kept changing. Finally, the cast was set: Robert Pattinson and Charlie Hunnam. They filmed in Colombia in 2015 for months on end. Pattinson lost a lot of weight and grew a sadness beard. And what happened with Charlie Hunnam? Well, he basically lost contact with his girlfriend Morgana for five months. Charlie told the story to Entertainment Weekly and he made it sound like he did it to be so “Method Actor.” Blah.
When Charlie Hunnam agreed to play 19th-century explorer Percy Fawcett — opposite Robert Pattinson as fellow traveler Henry Costin — in the film adaptation of David Grann’s The Lost City of Z, he knew it wouldn’t be easy. Giving Hunnam only five days between filming on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Lost City of Z, the five-month shoot took him away from longtime girlfriend with essentially no means of contact. The solution? A letter a day — or that’s what Hunnam promised, anyway.
“We went to Colombia, and the mail system doesn’t really work very well,” Hunnam said. “It’s completely unreliable. I received a letter from her, and I realized that from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn’t received the two letters that I sent before.”
With timely letters not really in the cards, Hunnam decided to go even more Method in portraying the explorer-cum-absentee father Fawcett. He stopped writing altogether. “Which obviously makes me sound like a total bastard, appropriately so,” Hunnam said. “But I was very apologetic.” The separation, however, helped Hunnam understand Percival Fawcett’s obsession. “One of the things that [director James Gray] and I felt strongly that we wanted to explore in the film,” Hunnam said, “was the conflict between family life and the exterior demands that are made on us and the social and economic demands that we all need to deal with in life, being balanced or in conflict with the internal drive, to be the people we want to be and achieve the things that we want to achieve.”
But where does that leave things with Hunnam and the girlfriend he promised to write to? Well, while Colombian mail system failed him, the jewel market did not.
“I had the benefit of shooting in Colombia, where they have rather lovely and somewhat cheap emeralds,” Hunnam says. “My girlfriend is a jewelry designer, so I was able to come back with an appropriately sized gift. It didn’t remedy all of the trouble I was in, but it got me halfway there.”
If you were dating an actor and he dropped off the face of the earth for five months without calling, writing, emailing, telegramming or anything else, wouldn’t you just assume you had been dumped? Like, that sounds like he was ghosting Morgana. And then he just shows up five months later and he’s like, “We’re still cool right, I brought you some emeralds?” Lainey at LaineyGossip was complaining about the white male privilege that goes along with “Method acting” and how these dude-bros basically use their Method as an excuse to act like total a—holes. What bugs is that everyone lets them get away with it too – even Charlie’s girlfriend! How is going dark for five months acceptable in a mature, adult relationship?
Uproar after Pennsylvania professor calls for 'white genocide' in a Christmas wish tweet
A Drexel University professor has been summoned to a meeting with school officials after he tweeted a Christmas Eve message wishing for 'white genocide.'
George Ciccariello-Maher, who is white and an associate professor of politics at the Philadelphia university, told The Associated Press by email Monday that his Christmas Eve message to nearly 11,000 Twitter followers — 'All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide' — was meant to be satirical.
Drexel was not amused, condemning Ciccariello-Maher's tweet and saying in a statement it was 'taking this situation very seriously.'
'While the University recognizes the right of its faculty to freely express their thoughts and opinions in public debate, Professor Ciccariello-Maher's comments are utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University,' Drexel said.
Ciccariello-Maher, whose biography says his academic specialties include 'race and racism,' said Drexel apparently didn't understand 'the content or the context' of his tweets.
The professor told AP he was mocking what he called the 'imaginary concept' of white genocide, which he says was invented by white supremacists.
'It is a figment of the racist imagination, it should be mocked, and I'm glad to have mocked it,' he said.
Ciccariello-Maher followed up his initial tweet by praising the 'massacre' of whites in Haiti during the country's slave uprising and revolution more than two centuries ago.
Though his Twitter account is private, he is a prolific tweeter, and his weekend messages spread quickly online.
He said he has received hundreds of death threats. The professor said Drexel's statement 'sends a chilling message.' Sounds like dumb satire to me.
OOOPS: Sarah Michelle Gellar Mistakenly Thought Boy George Had Died
Sarah Michelle Gellar mistakenly heard that Boy George had died last night and tweeted a tribute to the singer, who is really alive and well.
George Michael passed away on Christmas Day and the actress quickly corrected her mistake after fans pointed out the error.
“Do you really want to hurt me? I guess you do 2016,” SMG tweeted on Sunday night. She added the hashtag #ripboygeorge.
“Just as sad when you get the correct information- #ripGeorgeMichael thank you to everyone who corrected me- it’s still so sad. And for the record yes I completely know the difference between Boy George and George Michael – I heard incorrectly. My intentions were good. This is usually why I don’t comment on public matters, but it all seemed so sad on Christmas. Lesson learned,” Sarah tweeted to correct the mistake.
Boy George spoke out to pay tribute to his late friend.
