Actress Raksha Somashekhar was recently eliminated in the 8th week of the popular reality show, Bigg Boss Kannada Season 7. In a recent interview with TOI, the actress opened up about her eviction and experience in the glasshouse. She also stated the reason for nomination fellow housemate Chandan Achar for next week’s nominations. Raksha stated, “I was not seen on the silver screen for six to eight months as I had a leg injury. So, I thought Bigg Boss will give me an opportunity to reconnect with the audience. That’s the reason I decided to accept the offer. Staying in the house was an unusual experience. I felt lonely on most of the days even though there were many contestants in the house.” She went on to add, “Most of the contestants are from the television industry and I was an unknown face for the viewers. I entered the house only two weeks ago. People who voted me out probably did not know much about me. I never played double games and I was not part … [Read more...] about Bigg Boss Kannada Season 7 – Raksha Somashekhar On Her Ouster From The Show

Well, this is awkward timing. During Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment’s panel at Disney’s D23 Expo on Friday evening, the company announced a new original preschool animated series for Disney Junior, Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends. Set to debut in 2021, it marks the first full-length Marvel series for Disney Junior. The news comes at the end of a tumultuous week for the Spider-Man live-action movie franchise. As Deadline first reported, a standoff between Sony and Marvel/Disney has led to Marvel chief Kevin Feige exiting the Sony’s Spider-Man franchise and a looming exit of Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Preschool kids already love Spidey, so they’ll be delighted to have Peter Parker thwipping across their screens in this new series” Cort Lane, SVP, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, said in the announcement of the new series.

UPDATED at 8:55p.m. PT with Sony response: Sony Pictures spent much of yesterday putting its perspective on the prospective loss of Kevin Feige from future Spider-Man films. First the studio downplayed the idea he might be leaving; then insiders pinned his exit on added responsibilities from the Fox acquisition of the X-Men franchise, though they declined to make a statement. All this was reflected as factors in Deadline’s break of an important and widely regurgitated story. But sources maintain that Feige’s exit was about money; it was about Disney seeking the 50/50 co-fi stake (sources said the original Disney ask was more reasonable) as the price for Marvel and Feige’s continued guiding hand that resulted in the delivery of Sony’s biggest grossing film ever. Sony declined to meet those terms or even counter with anything worth considering. It was an aggressive stance by Disney, which already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man, and a tough nut for Sony to … [Read more...] about Disney-Sony Standoff Ends Marvel Studios & Kevin Feige’s Involvement In ‘Spider-Man’
In the latest episode of our Rolling Stone Music Now podcast, Brittany Spanos, Rob Sheffield, and Andy Greene join host Brian Hiatt to discuss the unexpected intersection of two artists whose heyday is separated by decades, styles and a whole lot of other differences: Billie Eilish and Van Halen. When Jimmy Kimmel recently asked Eilish about one of his favorite bands, she was baffled — understandably, given that Van Halen released its first album 23 years before her birth. The clip went viral, sparked an unfair pile-on from rock fans against Eilish, and then, in turn, questionably accurate attacks on Van Halen’s music from non-fans. But the episode digs into more interesting issues: What does this incident say about Eilish’s tastes, about the tricky art of classic rock legacy maintenance, and ever-widening musical generation gaps? Meanwhile, Sheffield argues that Eilish has more in common with David Lee Roth than their fans would think — starting with their … [Read more...] about Should Billie Eilish Have Heard of Van Halen?
