How Do You Follow Up ‘Old Town Road?’ If You’re Lil Nas X, You Don’t Try
Ryan Tedder has written songs for some of the most popular artists in the world: Beyoncé, Adele, Taylor Swift. Still, he’s never had an experience quite like the first time he hit the studio with Lil Nas X.

“He was holding a bunch of horse balloons that his label had given him to celebrate ‘Old Town Road,'” Tedder recalls. “As he was walking through the threshold of my studio, his phone dinged. It was Ron Perry [the head of Lil Nas X’s label, Columbia Records], saying, ‘Congrats, you are officially number one.’ He stopped, looked at his phone,

Queer As Folk cast - Then and Now: What the show's stars did next

A Russell T Davies TV project is always something to be excited about. From gifting us Queer as Folk to saving Doctor Who, he has given us a lot to be grateful for over the years. Hence why his various comeback series on Channel 4, E4 and online later this month are being greeted with such a sense of anticipation.

Cucumber, Banana and Tofu come 16 years after Davies shook up TV with Queer as Folk and his new shows look likely to be just as exciting, exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life with a candid sense of humour.

But will it create as many stars as Davies's previous Channel 4 series? Here's what happened to the Queer As Folk stars after it ended in 2000.

Terrence Howard Says He Was Fired From Iron Man 2 Because Of Robert Downey Jr.

Terrence Howard has been very vocal about his dismissal from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent years. After appearing in the original Iron Man, he was replaced by Don Cheadle for Iron Man 2. Apparently, he didn’t realize that the contract wasn’t “mutually binding” and that Marvel, despite making a multi-picture deal with him, still had the final say on whether they would bring him back or not.

For Iron Man 2, Howard was set to earn $8 million, which is a huge bump over the $4.5 million that he earned for the first one. Unfortunately for him though, Robert Downey Jr. got a bit greedy and took the money that was supposed to go to Howard.

“It turns out that the person that I helped become Iron Man, when it was time to re-up for the second one, took the money that was supposed to go to me and pushed me out,

Hunnam as Grey? Good Idea? The Whole World Reacts

Charlie Hunnam: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ gets its Christian Grey (photo: shirtless Charlie Hunnam in ‘Pacific Rim’) In the last couple of weeks, the world has been rocked by several revelations that have left earthlings — depending on their particular expectations, prejudices, and mental health — infuriated, terrified, shocked, thrilled. Am I referring to the reported chemical attacks in Syria and the Obama administration’s determination that the U.S. should get involved in that country’s bloody civil war? Syrius Chemical Civil War? Is Obama endorsing a new video game? Is it in 3D? Nope, that’s not what I’m talking about. Nor am I referring to the ivory trade and the relentless poaching of African elephants, which will quite possibly lead to their extinction in the very, very near future. Or to the nearly 1,000 manatees and dolphins that have met with slow and agonizing deaths in Florida’s grossly polluted waterways.

Terrence Howard In A Girl And A Gun, Juno Temple Could Co-star

Since being booted from the Iron Man franchise in 2008, Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard has been pounding the pavement, but getting little notice, appearing in overlooked features like The Ledge and Winnie.
