Video Game Characters Are Getting Too Freakishly Real for Me.....

  It’s easier to mindlessly blast away a room full of video game baddies when they look at you with dead eyes and zombie-like facial expressions. It’s a completely different challenge when they appear to be expressing actual emotions and pain, made all the more believable with this new advanced facial animation tool for the Unreal video game engine. This character doesn’t quite escape the uncanny valley, the term used to describe computer-generated humans that ironically look fake as a result of being so close to photo-realistic. But the way the features on his face are able to flex and move, including how his skin stretches while still being constrained by simulated muscles, would freak me out if I ran into him in a video game. Game over, man, game over!

Once The Juice is loose, he’ll put the squeeze on TV networks for millions for rights to an exclusive interview, sources close to O.J. Simpson  has said... “He’s not talking for free,” a longtime confidant told The Post a few days before Simpson’s expected Monday release from High Desert State Prison near Las Vegas. “It has to be the big one because he’s only going to do it one time and it has to be worth his while.” The disgraced gridiron great is expected to ask for $3 million to $5 million to sit down with the likes of NBC’s Matt Lauer, Megyn Kelly or Lester Holt; ABC’s Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan; or CBS’ newest “60 Minutes” correspondent Oprah Winfrey, the source said.

Listen....G4SHI Signs to Roc Nation, Drops New Song “Turn Me Down”

Brooklyn-based artist G4shi is on the come-up. Very recently, the talented up-and-comer signed with Roc Nation. He also dropped off “Turn Me Down,” a melodic banger you should be hearing a lot more of soon. Announcing G4shi’s signing on Monday (June 12), the Roc Nation Twitter account tweeted, “Welcome to the #RocFam @G4SHI! Listen to his new single #TurnMeDown on @TIDALHiFi.” G4shi used his Instagram to confirm the news the same day. The move to Roc Nation comes as G4shi continues seriously gearing up for his forthcoming Stairs 2 album, and “Turn Me Down” is the newest single from the project. The first single was “Disrespectful.” “Turn Me Down” is a melody-driven wave of confidence, featuring plenty of boastful lyrics you might catch yourself repeating without even realizing. “Swear they ain’t never gonna slow me down/When I’m in your city people hold me down/Ain’t no bitch in this place gonna turn me down,” G4shi sing-raps on the track. “She say yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah/I’m getting money with my eyes closed/Just touchdown in Paris got my mind blown/They always watchin’ all of my moves/I’ll be in a game you just some side hoes.” Check out “Turn Me Down”   Listen to the remix of @G4shi’s #TurnMeDown (Dark Heart Remix) on @TIDAL now!

MAC Cosmetics Has Huge News For Nicki Minaj Fans....

If there’s one celebrity we can always count on to deliver the full-blown glam, it’s Nicki Minaj..... The rapper is known for regularly stepping out with a dramatic cat-eye, bold hairstyle, and brightly colored lipstick, which is what made her partnership with MAC Cosmetics back in 2012 so fitting. (If you recall, the lavender lipstick she created went toward the brand's Viva Glam foundation.) Now, Minaj is back at it again with a brand-new MAC collab — but this time, she's baring all. The collection of two lipsticks — which includes “Nicki’s Nude,” a beige with coral undertones, and “The Pinkprint,” a creamy pink-nude — will be hitting stores in September. And since MAC's nude shades, like Creme d’Nude and Myth, already have a cult following, you know these two colors are going to be killer. But the collaboration doesn’t stop there: Minaj took to Instagram to share even more news of the partnership. “Can’t wait to reveal this exciting news I'm working on for 2018!!!” she wrote in the caption. “It’s a first of its kind partnership for me and the OG M·A·C.” She also shared a sneak peek of the new products.

Social Media Is Freaking Out Over The Real Meaning Of Fenty Beauty

One of the many perks of being a celebrity is that you can go by whatever name you damn well please. Demanding that others refer to you only as Snoop Dogg when your birth certificate says Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., might be grounds for an HR violation if you work at a conservative paper-supply company, but it's a completely respectable alias for a legendary rapper. (It also helps to differentiate from all the other Calvins in the music biz, such as Calvin Harris, whose real name isn't Calvin at all but rather Adam Richard Wiles.) Like Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian), Madonna, Beyoncé, and Sting (aka Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner) before her, Robyn Fenty ditched her regular-person name for the mononymic Rihanna — her middle name, which comes from the Arabic word for "sweet basil" — when she first entered the public eye. But a stage name is a stage name: The Barbadian star is still Robyn to her friends and family, and she gives her non-musical projects, like her Fenty x Puma collab, the Fenty name. Hence, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna — an obvious choice for her instantly-iconic new beauty brand. Apparently it was not so obvious for some of the singer's so-called fans, since a bunch of them just discovered several years too late that Fenty is not a random assortment of letters or some kind of acronym but actually Rihanna's real-life last name. For some reason, these people are broadcasting their dearth of knowledge on Twitter... and it is not going over well with the Rihanna Navy.   Wow, we’re shocked to get to know that Fenty is Rihanna’s last name. We had no idea. pic.twitter.com/jasNdiPEui — Victoria (@fentyshine) September 21, 2017 Call yourselves Rihanna fans but didn't know Fenty was her last name 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 bye basics — Amanda (@badgalmandyyy) September 20, 2017
