WHAT TO EXPECT AT COACHELLA 2017

Dreaming of warmer weather?  Now is the time to start planning a spring break!  Coachella, the annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, may be the perfect spring break getaway.  This year’s festival will take place on April 14-16 and 21-23, and tickets are currently for sale here.

In January, the 2017 Coachella lineup was announced.  The headliners are Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead.  Other big names who will perform include Lorde, Mac Miller, Bon Iver, Future, Hans Zimmer and Gucci Mane.  Check out the rest of the impressive Coachella lineup below:

Beyonce, who is pregnant with twins, must first get her doctor’s approval to perform.  Goldenvoice, the AEG Live subsidiary that produces Coachella, was reportedly unaware of Beyonce’s pregnancy until her recent announcement.  This has caused controversy around Beyonce’s headlining gig, and no official statement has been made yet by Beyonce on whether or not she is permitted to perform.

Another controversial aspect of Coachella 2017 is the scandal surrounding Philip Anschutz, the owner of AEG.  In January, The Washington Post revealed that Anschutz helped fund the Alliance Defending Freedom campaign, an anti-LGBTQ legal group.  Anschutz has also donated to the Family Research Council and the National Christian Foundation, which are strictly pro-life and pro-marriage organizations.  "Freedom for All Americans," an LGBTQ advocacy group has called Anschutz an “enemy of equality."

But despite these issues, as they say in showbiz, "the show must go on!” 

If you can’t make the two weekends of Coachella, there are plenty of exciting sideshow performances throughout Los Angeles to attend.  These include performances by, Future Islands, The Avalanches, DJ Shadow, Empire of the Sun, Bonobo and Jamie xx.  The various LA venues include The Observatory, The Glass House and The Regent.  Below is the full list of sideshows:

If you want to spend your spring break partying alongside A-list celebrities, Coachella is definitely the answer.  Several famous faces can be spotted every year at the festival, including: Leonardo DiCaprio, Emma Roberts, Taylor Swift, Alexander Skarsgard, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Jared Leto, Orlando Bloom, and more.

Find out more about the Coachella festival here and make sure to plan your exciting spring break trip ASAP!

WHICH HOLLYWOOD ACTORS ARE THE MOST OVERPAID ACCORDING TO FORBES?

On Wednesday Forbes released their annual “Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actors” list, and Johnny Depp is in the lead for the second year in a row.  Each year, Forbes calculates which Hollywood actors are the most overpaid, usually consisting of Hollywood male leads such as Brad Pitt, Will Smith, Denzel Washington and Tom Cruise.  The 2016 ranking is no different, although it does include Julia Roberts as the only woman listed.

Forbes’ method for the ranking goes as follows: “We looked at the last three films each actor starred in before June 2016, save animated films, movies where the actor appeared in an insignificant role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens.  We did not examine folks unless they had starred in a new eligible movie since last year's scoring period.  We then deducted the estimated production budget from the global box office for each film according to Box Office Mojo to come up with a limited definition of each movie’s operating income.  We took the total operating income from the star's three most recent significant films then divided by the star's estimated pay for those films to come up with a final return on investment number.”

Basically, Forbes figures out which Hollywood stars are getting paid more than their films are raking in at the box office.  Of course, the list is not intended to suggest these actors are not deserving of their success.

Hollywood’s top 5 Most Overpaid Actors for 2016 are:

FISHER STEVENS, DIRECTOR OF “BEFORE THE FLOOD” STARRING, LEONARDO DICAPRIO ADMITS, "I'VE NEVER BEEN A FAN OF TRUMP!"

Oscar winner, LEONARDO DICAPRIO Executive Produced a Movie You Wanna Watch, "BEFORE THE FLOOD” which is a necessary look at how climate change affects the environment and what society can do to prevent its demise.  The compelling documentary was directed by actor, FISHER STEVENS and stars Oscar winner DiCaprio, who let’s be honest, could convince most fans to eat crickets if he said that would help save the world.

THE WANNA host, Gina Glickman Giordan, had a first look at “Before the Flood” and recently sat down with Fisher for an exclusive interview at Guild Hall on Main Street in East Hampton during the 2016 annual Hamptons International Film Festival.  It was three years ago when DiCaprio picked up the phone to ask Fisher if he would direct the film.  Fisher revealed, "It's been a long journey.  We went everywhere from Greenland, to the Arctic, to India, to China, to Sumatra, to Palau.  We went all around the world, figuring out- and then we interviewed, I mean there were a lot of people we interviewed that didn’t even make the film, that you didn’t even see, that are amazing people."   Fisher made a point to share that the only thing more important then getting the film made was the timing of the premiere which was crucial, "There's a presidential election coming up and it was important to Leo and I that we get this out before the election, because if somebody’s elected President, or certain people are elected in the Senate or certain people are elected into Congress that want to crush a lot of the work that President Obama is doing right now on trying to curb carbon emissions then, we’re all in deep trouble.  Not just in India and China, but all around."   

Stevens revealed the details of why he agreed to take on the film, “When Leonardo asked me to make this film with him, I said, okay let’s go, we gotta keep it going, because it’s happening.  And we’re at this time in history of mankind, where we have to really start to change the way we get our power and live our lives.”  Stevens admitted, he wasn’t always friends with DiCaprio and describes how their movie making partnership was born, “We weren’t that close to be honest.  We knew each other for years but not that well.  We kind of bonded on a diving trip.  We went to the Galapagos Islands together and went diving.  I was filming Sylvia Earl, the marine biologist.  He was on the trip.  I didn’t know at that point his knowledge of environmental issues.  He knows more about species then most people.  He could tell you about a tiger or lion, things that you have no idea.  But also species that have been extinct.”  Stevens joked DiCaprio is so well educated on the topic and “can go on and on” that there was one scene Fisher says he was forced to cut Leonardo down for time, “Yeah, we trimmed that scene.”

There are several memorable movie moments in “Before the Flood” including when they went behind the scenes while Leonardo was filming his Oscar winning performance in “The Revenant.”  Fisher explains why going behind the scenes on “The Revenant,” was bittersweet and said, “It was sad but it was great for our film.  Yet, it was sad for the world that life is imitating art.  They had the warmest March in the history of that area in Canada.  All their snow melted.  So they had to go somewhere else to finish the film.” 

In “Before the Flood,” DiCaprio sits down one on one to interview the Pope.  Stevens said working with the Vatican threw the crew a few surprises along the way, “Well, there’s a little secret there.  I was there, but I wasn’t allowed to film.  They took my camera.  We knew that.  So, the Pope has his own people- he had his own people to film that scene."  When you watch the film, you may notice how DiCaprio, greets Pope Francis and sounds a tad nervous.  That may be because twelve hours before DiCaprio was scheduled to interview the Pope  Fisher said that's when his team revealed another surprise, "You’ve gotta greet him in Italian" described Fisher. "But, we were there and that was pretty magical.”  In the film, DiCaprio recounts his memorable meeting with Pope Francis, “Being able to spend time and sit with the pope was a pretty profound experience.”  He goes on to reiterate what the pope said, “he feels we need to all keep speaking out” about climate change “as loud as we can.”  It's obvious by the final cut of the film that Stevens and DiCaprio also had a magical rapport working together.  DiCaprio was hands on through out the process of creating the film and brought "tons" of ideas to the post process, Fisher explained, "I mean in the editing room too he had a great idea.  The Pope scene, we moved it to the end, that was his idea.  Which was a great idea.  We were partners making the film."

Fisher admitted one of his biggest concerns about the upcoming election is electing a leader who agrees our environment is at great risk and mankind can help make a change.  You remember Trumps "locker room" behind the scenes banter with former, “Access Hollywood” host, Billy Bush?  Well, Fisher told us his reaction to Trumps remarks and said, "It didn’t surprise me.  I had problems with Donald Trump before he was even running for President.  As a New Yorker, because I lived in New York most of my life and to see his name and what he’s doing to these ugly buildings and you know his crass Trump everywhere.  It bugged me just like that.  I’ve never been a fan of Trump!”  Stevens and DiCaprio are both hoping "Before the Flood,” will convince Trump and the rest of the world, to change their beliefs on climate change!

In addition to watching the film and learning why it’s crucial to pass a carbon tax to help curb carbon emissions, Fisher says anyone can help do their part to make a change and help save the environment and said, “We can eat less meat, elect different leaders and we can start powering our world differently.”

“Before the Flood” is a Movie You Wanna Watch and premieres on The National Geographic Channel, October 30th, 9/8c.

WHO ARE THE CELEBS THAT WON'T BE VOTING FOR TRUMP NOVEMBER 8TH? WATCH THIS...

It's no surprise that when it comes to politics, the majority of A-listers tend to lean to the left and the 2016 Presidential election is no exception.  Safe to say, the current Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, is a screenplay no one could have written.  Of course Tinsel Town still has a Conservative following but, several famous Democrats have made it their mission to publicly denounce Trump and stand behind Hillary this election year!  Over the years, Hollywood is known for creating PSA’s that encourage fans to vote.  This year, several stars took the message one step further and flat out revealed why you don't wanna vote for Trump.

The WANNA curated a list of celebs below, who took the time to create PSA’s and "video" messages that share one very clear message, vote for Hillary!

Kathy Griffin

The comedian says “Donald, F*** Off!” in this hilarious new take on a moving Hillary Clinton campaign video.

Aziz Ansari

Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari sarcastically addresses the fact that people seem to “need” celebrity voting ads to actually get out and vote.  On the more serious note, Ansari asserts that Trump “doesn’t believe in climate change” and “hates brown people.”

Robert DeNiro

This is one of the more scathing and direct anti-Trump videos, in which Robert DeNiro calls Trump a number of things, including “pig,” “blatantly stupid,” and says he would like to “punch him in the face.”  This one needs to be seen to be believed.

Keegan-Michael Key

Key & Peele star Keegan-Michael Key hilariously “forecasts” a Donald Trump presidency in this video from Joss Whedon.  Key references “smug looks” and “morons” who don’t believe in climate change, an apparent jab at Trump.

Joss Whedon Star-Packed “Save the Day” PSA

Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, James Franco, Julianne Moore, and more A-listers appear in this PSA created by Joss Whedon to address the more serious issues facing us this election.  One bit in particular has Don Cheadle emphatically calling out a “racist, abusive coward,” a not-so-subtle prod at Trump.  The celebs also address, “A man whose signature move is firing things.”  They insist that, “Every vote matters,” and jokingly bribe viewers with a Mark Ruffalo “nude scene” in his next movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio

In this short but important video, Leonardo DiCaprio, a longtime environmental activist and UN Representative for climate change, indirectly speaks about Trump’s ignorance to climate change.  If Leo can’t convince people to get out and vote, then no one can!
