There’s something definitely in the water over on the set of Sense8. Another major player has left while filming Season 2.

Previously, Aml Ameen, who plays one of the original sensates, abruptly exited due to a conflict with co-creator Lana Wachowski. Reportedly, tension began with creative differences during a table read in Berlin and worsened during filming in India. Toby Onwumere stepped in to play Capheus aka “Van Damme”- a Kenyan man taking care of his AIDS-stricken mother.

Find out below, who’s the latest to jump ship.

With swimming, gymnastics and wrestling (wink) dominating most of my allotted Olympic viewing time, water polo doesn’t normally factor in. That might all have to change now.

Spanish water polo player Víctor Gutiérrez has come out as gay, ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio during an interview with Shangay magazine. “My family knows I’m gay, my friends too,” he tells the publication. “And I’m living in such a positive way with my sexuality that I felt a responsibility to share it with others.”

The 25-year-old athlete reveals numerous homophobic attacks in Madrid this year motivated him to take the public step. “It is a reality that we live in. And there are almost no athletes who are out of the closet. But in my experience, people have changed. As an athlete, my experience has been absolutely positive.”

Go for the gold Gutiérrez!!! I’ll definitely be cheering him on. Check out more pics of him below.

Leona Lewis Joins Cats Broadway Revival

Cats returns to the Great White Way on July 31 at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre. It marks the first revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical since its original run closed in 2000.

Nicole Scherzinger, who appeared in the London West End production in 2014, was scheduled to lead the Broadway show but pulled out last second. She opted to do another stint as judge on The X Factor instead. A bit baffling to say the least. Fittingly, a winner from the UK talent show has now been tapped to replace her.

Leona Lewis steps in to play the glamorous cat of them all, Grizabella. If you’ve seen the show, you know the character is famous for the showstopping number, “Memory.”

“It is an incredible honor to be asked by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber to join the Cats family. I will never forget seeing the show as a little girl and how blown away I was by the magical experience of it. I am beyond thrilled for my Broadway debut to be in such an iconic show. To work with a team as legendary as those on Cats is an experience I will cherish every moment of. I cannot wait to see the audiences out in NYC!” – Leona Lewis

Have you watched Cats? Do you think Lewis is a good replacement? Weigh in below.

I love me some Jessie Ware. It’s insanely criminal that she’s not a household name yet. The 31-year-old English singer with her immense talent is definitely underrated.

Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, is an upcoming romantic drama based on the 2012 novel of the same name. The accompanying soundtrack released the first promotional single, “Not Today” by Imagine Dragons, weeks ago. We now get the second promo courtesy of Ware.

“I read Me Before You on my honeymoon after hearing so much about it. So to be asked to be in the film’s soundtrack was really touching, as I couldn’t put the book down when I read it,” Ware told Elle. “It’s a song that means a lot to me and I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoy singing it.”

Till The End” is a beautifully-sung sweet ballad that’s dripping with soul. It perfect for the heartwarming film. Give it a listen below.
