Netflix Is Stealing Disney/Marvel Movies From Other Streaming Services

Netflix on an iPad
If you don't have Netflix, your streaming options are going to be more limited in a few months. Starting in September Netflix has an exclusive deal with Disney films. That includes movies from Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, and Marvel studios. Isn't that like ALL the movies? :)

Don't get too excited. It doesn't mean you'll be able to stream all the movies, all the time. Disney obviously won't do anything that cuts into DVD sales. It will only mean those movies won't be on any other paid streaming services.

VIDEO: Elephant Falls Asleep 'Every Time' She Hears A Lullaby

Elephant
The Save The Elephant Foundation posted this video online showing the caretaker singing a lullaby to a huge elephant. Supposedly the elephant falls asleep every time. 

WARNING: She has a pretty soothing voice, so if you're already sleep-deprived you might doze off too.



Not sure what the deal is with hitting the elephant with the sweater - That looks less relaxing.

Niall From One Direction Says He's Being Cyberbullied

Niall Horan from One Direction
Tuesday afternoon Niall Horan from One Direction Tweeted that he's being abused online.
This leaves a lot of questions including why is he getting notifications on his phone for this? Do they have his phone number? Does he keep a Google Alert set up for his name?

Some people argue "that's what he signed up for in exchange for being famous," but nobody deserves that. It's pretty simple, if you wouldn't say it to his face then don't say it online.

Anne Hathaway Doesn't Want To Throw Shade...

The finale of "Dancing With the Stars" was last night and Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd won! Congratulations!

The finale of "The Voice" was also on last night and history was made. Alisan Porter from Team Christina won, making Christina Aguilera the first female coach on the show to win!

Anne Hathaway is not one to throw shade, and she wants to make that very clear! She got on Instagram the other day to give a shout-out to her Alice Through The Looking Glass co-star Helena Bonham Carter. It was a meme of her that said, "In a world of Kardashians, Be a Helena Bonham Carter." She then deleted it because not everyone saw Anne Hathaway's words in a positive light. Anne Hathaway clarified her original post right away by posting, "It never occurred to me I was pitting anyone against each other. Not my style. Peace x." Gotta love Anne Hathaway. She's not about the drama!

Paramore's Hayley Williams wants you to dye your hair at home! If you are a Paramore fan, then you've been familiar with her ever-changing hair and hair color since she and her bandmates got together in 2004. What she really wanted to make things easy was an at-home dye, and she couldn't find it. So she and her colorist decided to collaborate on their own vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly color line. The name? Good Dye Young. Hopefully Billy Joel doesn't come after her! He has until next month when it launches!

It's happening! Bill Cosby will stand trial for the alleged 2004 drugging and sexual assault of an employee at his alma mater, Temple University. A judge made the ruling yesterday at a preliminary hearing. Bill Cosby appeared in court even though he tried several times to get criminal charges against him dismissed. If convicted, Bill Cosby faces up to 30 years in prison! It isn't known when his trial will start.

Get ready for new music and even a tour! Katy Perry has been off the music map for a while now but she's coming back. It's being reported that she will be touring in 2017 and is currently working on her new album. I'll bet we have a new single before the deadline for the Grammys, which is September 30th! Bring on new Katy Perry music

VIDEO: Graduates Told Not To Recite Lord's Prayer, How They Responded

For the past 70 years East Liverpool High School in Ohio has had their choir sing the Lord's Prayer at graduation. This year they were told not to.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a complaint with the school, and rather than go into an expensive legal battle the school just cut it from the ceremony. The school board president said,“It was a decision made because we don’t have a lot of money and we’d rather hire teachers than pay lawyers.”

The class valedictorian had a different idea. He decided to lead the crowd in reciting the Lord's Prayer. Everyone immediately joined in and at the end there was big applause.
