Dirty Talk with Keliegh Butt

Quentin Tarantino has confessed that he knew about Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct for decades, but stayed quiet and continued to collaborate with him on multiple films. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino told The New York Times. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.” Tarantino goes on to admit that his ex-girlfriend Meera Sorvino told him that Weinstein sexually harassed her. He also knew about the settlement between Weinstein and Rose McGowan, who claimed she was raped by the disgraced producer. "What I did was marginalize the incidents," Tarantino admits. "I chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.” He adds that he now wishes "I had taken responsibility for what I heard."
Harvey Weinstein is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department after an Italian model-actress accused him of rape. Weinstein is currently under investigation not only in the LAPD, but by the New York Police Department and London’s Metropolitan Police for previous allegations of sexual assault.
A mechanical malfunction left Katy Perry stuck mid-air during her concert in Nashville on Wednesday. "This is the first time I’ve been stuck in space," she joked as she sat above the crowd on a model of the planet Saturn. "I know I’m kind of a space cadet, but actually, this thing is stuck. What should I do? Should I tell some jokes, should I tell some stories, should I just sing another song?" The pop star added, "You’d better put your phones up, it’s a YouTube moment!"
Fans of Charlie Puth are convinced the singer makes references to Selena Gomez in the video for his new song “How Long.” The video opens with Puth dancing around LA until, he becomes entranced by a painting of a girl with long, dark hair holding a rose that looks suspiciously like Gomez. “New conspiracy theory: The girl in the painting is actually Selena Gomez,”Puth and Gomez collaborated on 2016's "We Don't Talk Anymore," and were linked romantically the year before--until Gomez made it clear they were just "friends."
In light of all the allegations coming out about Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein, Ben Affleck, and more big names, one actor is being praised for his behavior towards a female movie critic! Nell Minow, spoke about sitting down with David Schwimmer in a hotel restaurant to discuss the 2010 movie he directed, Trust. It was too noisy for them to talk in the restaurant, so the David suggested they go up to his room to continue — but he quickly offered to have a third person join them if it would make her feel more comfortable!
Nell shared: "I haven't thought of that since it happened but the Weinstein stories made me not just remember it but remember it in an entirely different context as an indicator of the prevalence of predatory behavior and as an indicator of Schwimmer's integrity and sensitivity. This wasn't just about his being a good guy who would not have tried anything. He understood what it is like to have to be constantly on the alert and he wanted to make sure I understood I was safe."
