Looks like Evan Rachel Wood is still bitter over the fact that Tom Hooper decided not to cast her as Eponine in Les Mis. She also went on a twitter rant about that movie in 2012. Yes, I remember. She’s a piece of work.

I absolutely loved it. Cats is an acquired taste. This movie is not for everyone. And it could never be, animated or not. I’m glad it exists. I’m glad they had the balls to make it. It’s easy to mock this movie, but it EXISTS and, as long as there are people like me, it has an audience, even if it turns out to be a small one.
The entire cast is brilliant. I’m in love with Robert Fairchild, Judi Dench commands the screen like a goddess and Jennifer Hudson is a Grizabella for the ages. I

And you believe that? Do you also believe she signed to be in this movie without a deal to write a new song? Wake up. That video with Taylor and ALW is 100% scripted. He notoriously made Jim Steinman write perfect rhymes for Whistle Down the Wind. Do you think he would willingly let Taylor Swift butcher his song and put her name in front of his in the song’s credits?

Taylor Swift and Beyoncé have a lot to learn from the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna. When she did “Evita”, she was wise enough to step aside (even though she’s an accomplished lyricist who can write perfect rhymes) to let Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber write a new song for her. Beyoncé did the opposite in “Dreamgirls” and “The Lion King”, writing her own sloppy lyrics to songs that stand out like sore thumbs in otherwise perfect scores
I'm from Argentina and I can assure you that Eva Perón is seen as 100% white by us. Actually, the American stereotypical view of what a latino person must look like is highly offensive in all of South America. Case in point, Colombian actress Sofia Vergara is a natural blonde who had to dye her hair brown and apply lipstick around her lips to make them look fuller to be accepted as a latina in Hollywood. We don't all look the same. Even Hispanic people in the US
Now I'm looking for songs that could be sung in group therapy! It's relatively easy to find solos, now I'm having a hard time looking for ensemble numbers! Any help will be appreciated!
Songs that could be sung to a psychologist Jun 12

I'm trying to make a list of Broadway songs that could be sung during a session of psychoanalysis. Confessional songs that deal with the character's inner thoughts and problems. I know that almost every solo ever written fits in this category, but I'm trying to find songs that really feel like they could be sung to a psychologist, songs that make clear that the character has serious problems to deal with. Do you guys have any suggestions?
