Inter have chance to show they are truly back in Derby d’Italia

Paolo Bandini and Gab Marcotti preview Inter’s clash with Juve and how it may reflect on their surprising pursuit of the Serie A title. Stewart Robson and Shaka Hislop explain why Inter Milan have the upper hand when they face Juventus in Turin. It was a tad odd to see Inter fans mock Milan last week. Four-nil up against Chievo, the entire San Siro began to jump, yelling: “If you don’t jump, you’re a Rossonero.” Why didn’t they choose this weekend’s opponent Juventus? Perhaps it was because the hated Diavolo had just sunk further into ridicule, or because certain habits die hard. Still, it felt weird, because since the match-fixing scandal Calciopoli, most Inter faithful have it in more for Juventus than they do for their crosstown foes. Before the...

Sequel Money So Sweet 12/9/2017 12:10 AM PST EXCLUSIVE “Ant-Man” actress Abby Ryder Fortson‘s paycheck ain’t shrinking like her superhero dad in the movie, because she’s bringing home twice the dough for the sequel … TMZ has learned.  We got a hold of her minor’s contract for the ‘Ant-Man’ franchise and Abby — who’s only 9, mind you —  was guaranteed $140k if she gets a role in an “Ant-Man” sequel.

Pell Talks New EP ‘Girasoul’ & Growing as an Artist: ‘I Always Want to Evolve’

After taking a two-year hiatus, New Orleans rapper Pell is feeling rejuvenated. Since the release of his 2015 EP LIMBO, he polished his artistry while expanding his résumé in other facets of entertainment, most notably the movie industry.  During his break, Pell found the time to learn new instruments and write scripts while also lending his hand to the score of the Oscar-winning film La La Land. Rather than let the Oscar fiasco between La La Land and Moonlight eat away at him, Pell shrugged if off with ease. “It is what it is. I’m glad that Moonlight got its recognition because it speaks more to me than La La Land did even though I was a part of it.” Not only was Pell able to sharpen his skills for Hollywood, he also found a new home in the newly resurrected Payday Records, a partnership ...

Chance the Rapper Transforms Into ‘Chance the Weatherman’ for a Local Chicago TV Station

Chance the Rapper appeared on Chicago’s WGN 9 news station Friday morning (Dec. 8) in support of their annual toy drive, but viewers were also treated to Chano trying his hand at reporting the weather in humorous fashion. The 24-year-old detailed the frigid temperatures in the Midwest and even donned an invisibility cloak, meshing with the green screen behind him. Chance’s youth empowerment charity, Social Works, worked with the 15th annual toy drive in an effort to help drive participation numbers. The Coloring Book artist donned his signature gray “3” cap, a Champion turquoise crew-neck, black gloves and a pair of unreleased Adidas Yeezy runners on set. Before the report went live, 20-year weatherman Paul Konrad gave Chance some words of encouragement. “I...

Nick Hook & DJ Earl Say 50 Blunts in Seven Days Led to the Best Album of Their Lives: Listen

In today’s society of convenience and comfort, weighing our options becomes action’s enemy. You can spend hours reading restaurant reviews in search of the best meal, all the while growing hungrier, more frustrated and ever more anxious and unsure.  Musicians approach their craft the same way. You spend so much time listening and picking apart the same four measures of a song, you start to lose sight of the expression at hand. Other times, you make a song one summer, and a label waits until the next summer to put it out. The emotions are old. You’re a different person. It doesn’t feel the same. You can also die, a lesson learned by Nick Hook and DJ Earl when their dear friend and mentor DJ Rashad passed in his Chicago home in April 2014. The two producers and DJs ca...
