David Bowie unquestionably became a great rock star—the greatest ever, according to a tribute published by Rolling Stone after his death in 2016. Yet, it comes closer to the truth to call Bowie a “rock star,” the quotation marks suggesting that what Bowie created was a persona of the rock god, in much the same way that Cary Grant manufactured the quintessential image of the glamorous “movie star.” This is not to take away from his genuine accomplishments as a singer, songwriter and musician—he couldn’t have forged such a compelling persona without those gifts. Bowie’s real project was making art, and rock music and performance are best understood as just some of his modes of artistic expression. Brett Morgen’s documentary Moonage Daydream , which premiered in the Cannes Midnight Screenings section, does supreme justice to Bowie by presenting him above all as an artist intent on exploring not only popular music, but painting, video, writing, dance, and film and … [Read more...] about Cannes Review: Brett Morgen’s David Bowie Documentary ‘Moonage Daydream’

While Park Chan-wook ’s The Handmaiden dealt with a lot of sex and kink in its story of a handmaiden who gets into the good graces of her Japanese heiress, only to defraud her, the Korean filmmaker in his latest Decision to Leave , dotes on a detective Hae-Joon (Park Hae-il) who is head over heels with a very possible murder suspect, Seo-rae (Tang Wei). Ya see, it looks like she threw her husband off a mountain. And love being the motif between the two pics, Chan-wook was called to the carpet by the global press today at the Cannes Film Festival to field, “What is love for you?” The refreshing query came in the wake of an immediate press conference for Crimes of the Future in which David Cronenberg slammed U.S. conservative tendencies, in particular Roe vs. Wade. “My life isn’t part of my work,” answered the director, “Some directors talk about their own life. I don’t make films in that manner.” “Love is a relationship between two people, and people show … [Read more...] about ‘Decision To Leave’ Filmmaker Park Chan-wook Knows Somethin’ About Love, Especially When It’s Between A Cop & Suspect – Cannes

Mariah Carey makes a lot of money, but turns out way less than you probably think. TMZ has learned Mariah and Nick Cannon struck a settlement in their divorce, and they both declared income for 2014. We've learned Mariah says she raked in $6.3 million, and Nick scored $2.7 mil. As we reported, Mariah has demanded $50 mil from billionaire James Packer after their engagement exploded ... that's 8 times what she made 2 years ago. We've also learned the settlement requires Nick to squirrel away money for the twins, but maybe not as much as you think ... $5k a month in a trust. Mariah doesn't have to put anything in the trust. And there's this. The settlement says neither Mariah nor Nick can allow the kids to address a new significant other as mom, dad, mommy, daddy, father, mother or any facsimile thereof. Mariah and Nick share custody, but the kids are primarily with her. If Nick comes to visit, per the agreement, she foots the bill for travel and lodging. … [Read more...] about Mariah Carey’s Divorce Settlement with Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon , Mariah Carey and their twins were all smiles on Father's Day ... and Nick took a shot at the "haters" -- presumably us -- who have reported Mariah is at wits' end because he has dragged his feet signing docs that would make their divorce final. The family, along with Nick's mom, hit up Sky Zone and there was no sign of drama. As we reported, our sources say the custody agreement and property settlement were done deals more than a year ago and she has been pressing Nick and his lawyers to formally end the marriage, but it hasn't happened. We're told Nick hasn't made any additional demands ... his side just hasn't pulled the trigger . But at least from the pics, it's all kumbaya. … [Read more...] about Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey: We’re All Good

He continues, "There's a song I'm listening to now that's got lots of meanings and I hope it makes u smile. When you get caught between the moon and New York City best that you can do is fall in love." And there's more ... "All my love, laughter, light, respect and appreciation and admiration ... Thank you my fiancee and soulmate." And the subject line reads, "Will U marry me soon MCP pls -:)))))." And, just a week before getting on the boat on Sept. 14th, Mariah gave James a Cartier wedding band as a birthday present.
