Linkin Park Cancel Tour Following Chester Bennington’s Death

The day after frontman Chester Bennington’s tragic death, Linkin Park have canceled the remainder of their current tour.

Tour promoter Live Nation said in a statement, “We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been canceled. Refunds avail at point of purchase. Our thoughts to all those affected.”

The One More Light tour — named after the band’s seventh studio album, released in May — has already traveled through South America and Europe. The North American leg was slated to kick off on July 27 in Mansfield, Massachusetts. On July 28 and 29, Linkin Park and Blink-182 were set to co-headline shows in New York and Pennsylvania. No word yet on whether or not Blink will proceed with those concerts.

Bennington was reported dead at age 41 on Thursday (July 20). The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed Friday that the cause of death was suicide by hanging. In memoriam, several artists have shared tributes to Bennington on social media, including Rihanna, Steve Aoki, and more.

Olivia Munn Is Probably Reprising Psylocke In X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Olivia Munn is psyched to return to the X-Men franchise, but she’s trying to be vague about it.

After making her X-debut in last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, her involvement in the seventh X-Men installment, Dark Phoenix, has yet to be confirmed — until now. Well, kinda. While promoting The LEGO Ninjago Movie at San Diego Comic-Con, Munn was super “vague” about her X-future. That probably has something to do with the fact she couldn’t remember what it was she was told she could reveal.

“I was asked what I can say, and I can’t remember. I’m supposed to say things,” she told MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz. “I’ll just repeat to you what was said to me in the text. It was: ‘be vague.'”

Typically, if an actor is told to “be vague” about his or her involvement in a film, there’s a pretty good chance that actor is in the movie. “That is a great assumption,” Munn said, vaguely, of her rumored reprise in Dark Phoenix, “but I’m being vague.”

Still, Munn would love to reprise her role as Psylocke in any and all future X-Men films. Why? Because Psylocke is a total badass. In fact, Munn revealed that audiences only saw about 25 percent of her character’s total badassery in Apocalypse, seeing as her big fight scene was trimmed considerably from its original length.

“The fans only got to see a quarter of it,” she said. But don’t worry: Munn plans to make her own special director’s cut for fans. “[Simon Kinberg] said last year that I can go in to Fox whenever I get time and actually edit it for myself, which I will do! Because we worked on it so hard, me and Nick Hoult’s character. So I’m excited to do that.”

“I love the character so much,” she concluded. “I’d love to see more of her. I’d love to be able to delve into that more.”

The LEGO Ninjago Movie hits theaters September 22, 2017.

Kesha Bursts Into Tears While Performing ‘Woman’ For The First Time

Kesha’s return to the music world has been a long, turbulent journey, so it’s no surprise that performing her new songs is a super emotional experience.

During a show in Council Bluffs, Iowa, last night (July 20), the singer got choked up before her first live performance of “Woman.”

“This could suck really, really bad,” she told the crowd. “But we’re gonna probably do it. I just wanna say thank you guys.”

Her fans dutifully chanted her name as Kesha paced nervously around the stage, wiping tears from her eyes. But all that anxious energy vanished as soon as she launched into “Woman.” Armed with a smile, a strut, and loads of confidence, she crushed the performance, as seen in the fan-shot video below.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Kesha explained after the song, “It’s the first time we’ve ever performed it. Ever. I know that it seems silly I cried… This is a very special night for us.”

Here’s to many more awesome performances ahead!

James Van Der Beek Is Not Out Of Tears Yet

James Van Der Beek is perfectly internet optimized.

“Go to Google, bro. Google ‘crying,’ see what comes up,” the What Would Diplo Do? star told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con.

Van Der Beek, who made his name playing the titular Dawson on teen soap Dawson’s Creek and then broke the internet with his iconic crying face on the show, is well aware of his meta meme status.

“I worked for six years to come up with a meme,” he quipped [around the 5:05 mark]. “I’m a forward thinker. I was like, ‘If I shoot 120-something episodes, I bet I can get three quality seconds on a loop. And eventually there’s gonna be this thing called the world wide web and people are gonna share that and they’re gonna mock each other with it. And I’m not saying I’m a genius, but it worked out. Let’s just say it panned out. Always play the long game.”

So when it came to post-Creek projects like Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and now Viceland’s What Would Diplo Do?, in which Van Der Beek plays Diplo, because sure, the former teen heartthrob felt he had paid his dues by making fun of himself.

Even when he was on Dawson’s Creek, he said, he would privately acknowledge how ridiculous the phenomenon of the show was, but didn’t want to come off as ungrateful.

A few years later, things changed: “Then enough time elapsed and the residual checks dried up and I was like, ‘fuck it, I can make fun of this,’ and then it became a lot of fun. And then it kind of became the thing to do, so when I stepped in and said, ‘I think I can write this, I think I can run this,’ I at least had some miles in the saddle doing this like meta, weird celebrity thing so people kind of thought oh yes, he could be the guy to do it.”

What Would Diplo Do? premieres on Viceland on August 3.

One IT Star Couldn’t Stop Laughing The First Time They Met Pennywise The Clown

IT has been hailed as one of the most terrifying horror classics in cinematic history, and the upcoming reboot of the story looks to be upholding the legacy. Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, the story follows a murderous clown, Pennywise, that lurks in gutters and shadows and similarly spooky locales with an eye toward murdering young children. In short, no laughing matter.

Unless you’re IT star Sophia Lillis, who laughed her face off the first time she encountered Bill Skarsgard in costume as the murder clown.

The posse of kids had been kept purposely separate from Skarsgard until the middle of the summer, firmly enough that, star Wyatt Oleff told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con, “the pictures we saw of him were the ones that were released to the public.”

When they finally met him on-set, during one of Jack Dylan Grazer’s scenes, Oleff said, “It was really scary to see a six-foot-five man looming over you” before he introduced himself and said hello.

Scary for all, it would seem, but Lillis: “Her reaction was to burst out laughing,” co-star Finn Wolfhard said.

“That’s all of her reactions,” Oleff confirmed. When the cast watches scary movies together, he said, “It’s like someone dies, she laughs.”

One thing Lillis would like to clarify, despite literally laughing in the face of evil: “I’m not a horrible person.”

For more from the IT cast, including their reactions to the movie’s record-breaking teaser trailer, the experience of shooting a movie set in the pre-iPhone ’80s and what Chosen Jacobs called “my favorite summer of my 16 long years on earth,” check out our full San Diego Comic-Con interview above.

IT hits theaters September 8, 2017.

Channing Tatum Holds Out Hope For Gambit At Comic-Con

It seems like years ago that Channing Tatum was flinging cards around and triumphantly entering the San Diego Comic-Con stage for his official debut as leading man of X-Men spin-off Gambit.

Oh, wait. That’s because it was years ago.

Gambit has been in limbo, facing delay after roadblock after hurdle, since that announcement in 2014, but back at Comic-Con three years later, Tatum is still feeling confident that he’ll get his chance to fling those cards as the Ragin’ Cajun on the big screen.

“I think it was the luckiest thing in the world that we had some bumps in the road and I think the bumps in the road came at the time that there was a paradigm shift in these movies,” Tatum told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz at a press event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle Thursday (July 20). “We got to witness and learn from two really beautiful change in guard from movies, Logan and Deadpool. It did break some ground for us and now we have to figure out what our version of that is and not just try to go and do whatever that is.”

The screenplay is still in the works, with Tatum involved to capture the specific tone and style of the mutant, hence the comparisons to Logan and Deadpool, both painstakingly crafted character studies that stand apart stylistically from more typical superhero genre movies. The shuffles in production staff and repeated delays in release (after the triumphant 2014 announcement, the movie was rumored to be filming in Fall 2015) haven’t helped either.

All in all, Tatum doesn’t seem discouraged.

“It’s fun, it’s good, it’s like trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube that’s always moving,” he said. “These things, they’re hard, they’re tough.”

Chester Bennington, Lead Singer Of Linkin Park, Dead At 41: Report

Chester Bennington, the lead singer of alt-metal band Linkin Park, has died by suicide, The Associated Press confirms.

Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the singer’s body was found just before 9 a.m. on Thursday (July 20) at his home in Los Angeles.

Shortly after reports of Bennington’s death broke, fellow Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda confirmed the news on Twitter. “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true,” he wrote. “An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”

Linkin Park bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, simply added, “Heartbroken.”

Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He leaves behind six children from two marriages.

The singer was a close friend of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell — who also committed suicide in May — and even performed at his funeral. Bennington’s body was found on what would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

Since Linkin Park’s debut nearly 20 years ago, the band became one of the biggest rock/nu-metal bands in the world. Their debut album, Hybrid Theory, was the best-selling album of the 2000s, and its follow-up, 2003’s Meteora, spawned hits like “Numb” and “Breaking the Habit.” The band also collaborated with Jay-Z on the hit 2004 mash-up album Collision Course.

Linkin Park resurfaced in 2017 after a three-year hiatus for One More Light, which topped the Billboard 200 and became the band’s fifth No. 1 album. At the time of Bennington’s death, they were in between legs of a world tour in support of the album, and were scheduled to kick off a 29-date North American trek next week.

Earlier today, the band released a new music video for One More Light single “Talking to Myself.”
