Harvey Weinstein to Surrender to New York Authorities Following Sexual Misconduct Probe
Harvey Weinstein is expected to be served with criminal charges by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and will turn himself in to authorities on Friday, according to the New York Daily News.

The news of an arrest comes after a months-long investigation by New York law enforcement into accusations of sexual misconduct. According to the Daily News, Weinstein faces charges in connection with accusations made by aspiring actress Lucia Evans, who said Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in his Manhattan office in 2004.

A grand jury convened several weeks ago was also presented evidence related to crimes of financial fraud, the paper reported, though it is unclear if he will also be charged for any financial crimes.

Louis C.K. Accuser Describes ‘Vicious and Swift Backlash’ Since ‘Speaking Out’
Comedian and writer Rebecca Corry, one of Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct accusers, has come forward to talk about the backlash she has faced since speaking up.

“Since speaking out, I’ve experienced vicious and swift backlash from women and men, in and out of the comedy community,” Corry wrote for Vulture. “I’ve received death threats, been berated, judged, ridiculed, dismissed, shamed, and attacked .”

Corry also explained that many people have said to her that C.K. apologized for his actions, which Corry said is far from the truth.

“But he didn’t,” she wrote. “Admitting what you did, and justifying it with ‘I always asked first,’ is not the same as apologizing.”

While facing the backlash, Corry also said that it’s been “heartbreaking” to see people she “liked and respect lie and defend” C.

Ariana Grande Had the Best Response When a Guy Blamed Her For Mac Miller's Recent DUI Arrest
Ariana Grande does not have time for rude comments about her recent split from rapper Mac Miller. The "No Tears Left to Cry" singer had a truly epic response when a guy on Twitter called her out and placed blame on Ariana for Mac Miller's recent DUI arrest, implying that she should feel guilty. "Mac Miller totaling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten-song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood," he wrote.

This Is the Brilliant Voice Behind L3, Who Steals Every Scene in Solo: A Star Wars Story

Image Source: Everett Collection

As the lights went down in my theater and the first words in Solo: A Star Wars Story's intro began to crawl, I was mentally prepared for two things: (1) to potentially fall in love with Alden Ehrenreich and (2) for Donald Glover to steal every scene he's in. While both of those things happened - I mean, how could they not? - they still didn't come close to ranking as the best character in the film. Both of them do exceptional work, but it's Phoebe Waller-Bridge's brilliant, enlightened L3-37 droid who saunters off with Solo's best lines.

British actress, comedian, and playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge provides the voice for L3, who cares deeply about both her partner in crime, Lando, and droid rights. She spends most of the movie cracking jokes at Lando's expense - although they're done with love, since she swears he has

What You Need to Know About the Origin of Han Solo and Chewbacca's Lifelong Friendship
Warning: a few adorable, Bff-related spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story ahead!

Thelma and Louise. Bill and Ted. Romy and Michele. And now? Han and Chewie.

The galaxy-traversing smugglers have been a part of the Star Wars universe since the first film, A New Hope, hit theaters in 1977, but it's taken over four decades to finally get their origin story. Now, thanks to Solo: A Star Wars Story, we have it.

In Disney's latest standalone film, which boasts an all-star cast and is already prompting talk of spinoffs, the story mainly focuses on the rise of young Han Solo's career as one of the galaxy's greatest pilots and most astute smugglers. We see him fall in love (with both a woman and the Millennium Falcon) and get stabbed in the back, and we even discover how he earns his iconic last name (spoiler alert: it's not the one he was born with).

Ready For a New 13 Reasons Why Mystery? Let's Figure Out When Season 3 Might Premiere

  • Popsugar
Now that season two of 13 Reasons Why has dropped on Netflix, fans have two major questions on their minds: is the show going to be renewed for season three, and if so, when will it come out?

The news that the controversial Netflix series would be getting a second season came as a bit of a surprise last year, since the first season ends basically around the same point as the bestselling Ya novel upon which it's based. Of all the shows out there, it certainly seemed like it would lend itself well to a limited series situation. But then the explosion of 13 Reasons Why popularity took over, and it was obvious the powers that be wanted to continue on with the story. Despite season two's chilly reception - a graphic rape scene is causing a fresh batch of controversy, adding on to already poor reviews - it's safe to
