Press: RuPaul, Drew Barrymore, Faith Hill and James Corden to judge new talent competition

RuPaul, Drew Barrymore, Faith Hill and James Corden are set to headline The World’s Best, a global talent competition.

The 10-episode series comes from reality TV veterans Mark Burnett (Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television) and Mike Darnell (MGM Television), who are best known for their involvement in The Voice and American Idol.

Set to premiere in 2019, the series will feature acts from every genre as they attempt to break through the “wall of the world”. Not only will they have to impress the judging panel, but they’ll have to win over 50 of the world’s most accomplished entertainment experts.

Sharon Vuong – CBS’ SVP, Alternative Programming for CBS – said: “It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best. James, Drew, Faith and RuPaul are all amazing talents who have excelled in their respective fields on a global scale. We can’t wait for them to bring their distinct voices to a show that’s unlike any other.”

“We feel incredibly lucky that James Corden agreed to be part of this groundbreaking global event competition,” commented Darnell. He’s an absolute force of nature, and his versatility, passion and showmanship are unrivaled.

“The very name of the show defined the caliber of judges we sought out and ultimately got. Drew, RuPaul and Faith are incredibly accomplished superstars whose talents encompass every area of entertainment. Along with James, The World’s Best will now be the gold standard of competition shows.”

Burnett also said: “James Corden is at the top of his game and there is no one better to host this ultimate international competition series. This groundbreaking series is like the Olympics of talent shows and needed the perfect talent combination.”

Press: Drew Barrymore’s New Fragrance Line Is Designed to Last All Day

Blame it on body chemistry, but fragrances—no matter how high-end—never seem to linger on me longer than an hour. If I really go crazy spritzing in the morning, I might get lucky and still catch a faint whiff around lunchtime. But sadly, I’ve never been one of those lucky, fragrance-friendly people who gets to spend the whole day enveloped in a cloud of scent. (I know, I know—cue a chorus of tiny violins.)

Leave it to Drew Barrymore to create the anecdote. The latest from her line, Flower Beauty, is a six-part fragrance collection called “Pretty Deadly.” It’s comprised of three spicy floral scents, all of which are rendered in both eau de parfum and body mist form. And here’s the magic part: I find that if double-up on a single fragrance by spraying on the body mist version post-shower, then applying the eau de parfum as normal, the scent lasts for the whole day. Yep, really.

Of course, you can also wear them each alone or mix-and-match perfumes and mists to create a unique combo. But if, like me, you need a little extra insurance, layering two forms of the same scent is a total game-changer.

Sorry for the lack of updates on here. I have been working on the photo gallery tons offline sorting through decades of photos and dozens of films. Once I’ve sorted everything I can update things more frequently. In the meantime, I’ve added HD screencaps of Drew from her 2010 film Going The Distance. Big thanks to my friend Jennifer for her help. Enjoy!

Press: Drew Barrymore Recalls Her Childhood Drug Abuse: Cocaine Is ‘My Worst Nightmare Right Now’

Drew Barrymore isn’t craving a taste of her old lifestyle.

The Santa Clarita Diet actress, 43, opened up about her childhood drug abuse during an interview on Netflix’s Norm Macdonald Has a Show which began streaming Friday.

Barrymore, who has been candid in the past about her addiction which began when she was 12, was asked by host Norm Macdonald if she missed cocaine.

“No. Oh, God. It’s been a very long time, but no,” Barrymore said. “Nothing would make me have a panic attack and seem like a bigger nightmare.”

The actress revealed she “never did hallucinogenics,” adding “that’s like a water bucket being thrown in your face but for hours.”

While Barrymore overcame her substance abuse she said she isn’t “militant” about her lifestyle.

“I drink, I enjoy my life and get out of my own head,” she explained. “It’s not that I’m this militant person of clarity and presence but [cocaine] literally seems like my worst nightmare right now.”

Barrymore broke out in Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in 1982 and what followed was an extensive career as a child star that took a back seat to her personal struggles.

Of her early fame, the actress said it was “like a recipe for disaster.”

“You know what’s exciting? I got my s— over with at, like, 14,” Barrymore said. “Like, midlife crisis, institutionalized, blacklisted, no family. Got it done. And then got into the cycle of being my own parent.”

Despite her struggles, Barrymore has cemented herself as an A-list actress starring in a series of hits such as The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, Charlie’s Angels and Never Been Kissed.

She married longtime friend Will Kopelman in 2012. The two divorced in 2016 (they have two daughters, 5½-year-old Olive and 4-year-old Frankie).
