YOUR FAVE ANIMATED COMEDY IS GETTING A MOVIE!

One of the world’s favourite animated comedy’s Bob’s Burgers is getting it’s own movie!

Slated for release in July of 2020, the film comes off the back of it’s highly successful TV show, which has been on the Fox network in the US since 2011.

The animated show revolves around the Belchers, a family of five, and their burger business. Bob, the father, is the head of the restaurant who comes up with clever ideas for new burgers. His wife, Linda, is optimistic and cares deeply for their three young children — Tina, Gene and Louise.

“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” Loren Bouchard, the series’ creator, said.

“We know the movie has to scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had, but it also has to work for all the good people who’ve never seen the show.

We also know it has to fill every inch of the screen with the colors and the sounds and the ever so slightly greasy texture of the world of Bob’s – but most of all it has to take our characters on an epic adventure. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”

The show received its second Emmy Award for Best Animated Series in September.

SO EXCITED!

ARIEL WINTER HITS BACK AT HER CRITICS

Having grown up before our eyes as Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, over the last 12 months we’ve seen a real transformation in Ariel Winter, something some people have definitely noticed and have disliked.

But Winter has hit back at her critics with a rant on her Instagram overnight, saying she doesn’t intend to have every one of her fashion choices looked over by people who don’t know her.

“I’m not trying to be pap’d everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING, and unfortunately I can’t do that without paparazzi following me around everyday,” she lamented.

“I’m not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store. I’m trying to live my life.”

Winter also continued to vent her frustrations, particularly about comments regarding her estranged relationship with her mother.

Winter recently told the The Hollywood Reporter her mom dressed her too maturely and sexualised her at a young age.

“I’d also like to address the tweets I get saying, ‘You accused your mother of sexualising you yet you’re a whore.’ I was a CHILD being dressed like I was 24. I was 8-13 years old. I WASN’t an adult as I am now.”

Winter went on to say she has the right to show her body how she likes without apology.

“And just because I DECIDE to show my body occasionally doesn’t mean I’m unintelligent or that I’m talentless or that I have no self respect. I have extreme SELF RESPECT.”

What do you think? Should we be getting on Ariel Winter’s back about her fashion choices, or should we just leave her alone? Leave your view in the comments below!

LADY GAGA POSTPONES EUROPEAN TOUR!

LADY GAGA POSTPONES EUROPEAN TOUR!

She jumped off stadium roof earlier in the year for the Superbowl, but it appears Lady Gaga is not as invincible as we once thought.

The Bad Romance singer has had to postpone her six week European tour through Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Britain, Denmark, Sweden and Germany thanks to ongoing health problems.

“Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform,” tour promoter Live Nation said on Monday.

The promoter said the 31-year-old singer-songwriter “plans to spend the next seven weeks proactively working with her doctors to heal from this and past traumas that still affect her daily life, and result in severe physical pain in her body.”

No new dates for the 18-gig European leg have been confirmed, but Live Nation said that the second leg of the North American part of the tour is scheduled to resume in November as planned.

Gaga said Monday on Instagram that’s she been honest about her “physical and mental health struggles” and has been “searching for years to get to the bottom of them.”

“As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I cannot only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference,” she wrote.

No news yet about an Australian leg of the Joanne World Tour, which means we’re likely to see her if she does come out towards the middle to end part of 2018.

SELENA GOMEZ GOES UNDER THE KNIFE!

SELENA GOMEZ GOES UNDER THE KNIFE!

Former Wizards Of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez has gone under the knife over the last couple of months, getting a kidney transplant as part of her ongoing battle with Lupus.

The Love You Like A Love Song singer broke the news by sharing a picture on Instagram of herself yesterday in a hospital bed, revealing her battle with Lupus had led her best friend and The Secret Life Of The American Teenager star Francia Raisa to donate an organ.

“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of,” Gomez wrote.

“So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.

“I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you.”

Gomez first opened up about having Lupus in 2015 and last year she was forced to take a break from the limelight after suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and depression — stemming from the disease.

No word yet on the expected time we’ll see Selena back out on the stage, but here’s hoping it’s sooner rather than later!

SIX THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE IPHONE X!

SIX THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE IPHONE X!

Those genius’ at Apple have been busy behind the scenes developing their brand new phone the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but they’ve also been working on a special phone.

The iPhone X (getting it’s name from the roman numeral for 10) is the latest and greatest iPhone, a phone that is celebrating it’s tenth anniversary this year!

So if you’re thinking about getting one of these new devices, here’s 6 things you need to know about the new phone…

1. THERE’S NO HOME BUTTON

You read that right; there is no home button on this version of the iPhone.

In order to maximise the huge 5.8 inch infinity screen they’ve got on the new phone, they’ve gone away with the home button and instead are making their touchscreen technology better; just swipe up on the screen and you’re into your phone (if it’s unlocked already!)

2. IT’S GOT FACIAL RECOGNITION

This one can be a little dicey.

With the home button taken away, it means that there is no longer fingerprint ID, so the team at apple have developed facial recognition, or as they call it FaceID. Using technology in the camera it’s able to unlock your phone just using your facial features.

This could be good for some, but it also has serious privacy issues. Maybe keep this one off and just use the passcode if you’re a little worried.

3. ITS GOT A REALLY GOOD CAMERA

Not only has the iPhone got dual 12 megapixel cameras on the back, but it’s also got some pretty cool features on its front facing camera too.

You can now take your selfies in portrait mode, meaning the camera will focus purely on your face, and you can add portrait lighting to it too, meaning you can dim the background so literally your face is all people will see when they look at the photo.

4. IT’S GOT WIRELESS CHARGING

Apple first introduced wireless charging with its Apple Watch, and now it’s bringing the tech to the iPhone X.

In fact, you can now wirelessly charge your phone, watch and ear pods all on Apple’s new wireless charging base. However you will need to wait for that base till next year, so you’re still going to be using and losing those lightning cables till that comes in.

5. IT’S GOT ANIMATED EMOJIS

If you thought emojis were annoying now…

With the new face recognition tech, it allows Apple to create the new Animoji’s, that allow you to put your own facial expressions onto select emojis, so now you could have a laughing chicken, or a cross monkey. Oh boy, people are going to have fun with that.

6. BUT, IT’S PRETTY EXPENSIVE

It’s got all these great features, but you are going to have to shell out the coin for them. 

The 64GB version of the phone is going to coast A$1579 and the 256GB version will cost you the hefty sum of A$1829. Put that together with accessories and you’re looking at at least A$2000, just for a brand new phone.

All in all, it’s a pretty cool phone with some pretty cool tech, but it does cost a fair bit, and doesn’t officially come out till November 3.

IS LORDE DROPPING NEW MUSIC THIS FRIDAY???

IS LORDE DROPPING NEW MUSIC THIS FRIDAY???

Could the music industry’s favourite Kiwi songstress be releasing her new album this Friday?

Well according to an ad that NZ TV personality Jack Tame watched last night that could be a distinct possibility!

The video features a snippet of the song at the start that we at Max HQ are suspecting is part of the first single to come from the new album, along with Lorde and her driver just sipping on a drink casual AF.

The video also features the dates March 2 and March 3, for the US and NZ respectively.

Some secret squirrelling has also found a website www.imwaitingforit.com which features the aforementioned ad and gives it the title M*******A.

This could quite possibly be the name of the album all asterisk-ed out, so I’ll guess we’ll have to wait till Friday to find out!

IT’S HERE! KATY PERRY HAS RELEASED NEW MUSIC!

Finally, KatyCats can rejoice because their queen has risen.

Earlier today Katy Perry released her new team up with Bob Marley‘s grandson Skip Marley for her hit Chained To The Rhythm, and it’s a bloody banger!

Hitting it with some reggae vibes, the song is an absolute gem that has been causing worldwide pandemonium between her loyal fans.

Earlier this week it was revealed she would be performing at the GRAMMYs this Monday Morning (AEDST) and that it would be a brand new song.

She then released short teasers before giving some a chance to hear the song before it was officially released when she put disco balls with a headphone port at major landmarks around the world.

But now that it’s here, what do you think? Is it a YAY or NAY from the people of the Mid North Coast?

Unsure? Have a listen to it again via the lyric video for the single below!
