Totally Stripped contains a new documentary of that takes an in-depth look at the Stripped project, as well as an album featuring both previously released and unreleased performances from the aforementioned concerts in Amsterdam, Paris and London.

Chelsea Handler Doesn’t Care What You Think of Her New Show

Adam Rose/Netflix(NEW YORK) — Chelsea Handler has made a career out of being unapologetic, unafraid and sometimes half-naked.

Now, Handler is trying to reinvent herself and the late-night talk show format with her new Netflix show, Chelsea.

“It’s not your traditional talk show in the fact that it’s not the same format every single night. It’s different things,” Handler, 41, told ABC News’ Nightline.

On Chelsea, Handler has done everything from having dinner parties with movie stars to trips to Japan so she can learn how to become a geisha and a Harajuku girl. And her dog Chunk is on stage at all times.

“I mean, not everybody is going to like it. You know, not everybody is going to like me. I’m a very divisive person, so I’m not expecting the whole world to be like, ‘Oh my God, we finally found our leader,'” said Handler.

Netflix has signed up for 90 shows a year. The episodes drop just after midnight on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and air in 190 countries, with subtitles.

Because it’s on-demand, even though it’s a late-night talk show, viewers can catch Handler at any time of the day.

“They’ve told me that people have been binge-watching rather than watching every night. I mean, when I look on Twitter, I can see the people who are watching in the morning,” she said. “I’m thinking, ‘No, I don’t want you watching me in the morning. What is that? This isn’t a morning show,’ and then I thought, ‘Who cares?'”

Handler said Chelsea is a departure from her E! network show Chelsea Lately, where she made her name before ending the talk show in August 2014.

“I think a lot of my fans that came from my old show are probably like, ‘No, we want more celebrity gossip. We want more of that,’ but I’m just not really feeling that anymore, so I don’t really want to do that,” Handler said.

Celebrities will still stop by the show, but Handler will tackle other subjects too, including this year’s election season. Handler said she wants to ask and attempt to answer questions to which she doesn’t necessarily know the answer.

“I want it to be a place where you can get information in a fun way. I want people to learn. I want to ask the questions that some people are embarrassed to say, that they don’t have the answers to,” she said. “I’m allowed to talk about how stupid somebody is, and I don’t have to care about getting them on my show, and I certainly don’t have to care about what he thinks about me.”

And while Handler said she can’t ignore those who don’t like her or her new show, she said she’s going to continue to not care what people think.

“When you have those moments of insecurity, you definitely pay more attention to what the negative stuff that people say. So, you got to just have to at a certain point go, ‘OK I’m not looking at that anymore,'” Handler said.

“Of course it bothers you when people don’t like you. You know when people don’t like you, they can say vitriolic things about you, but I try and focus on the people that do like me. I mean, especially with the show launching, I pay more attention to what people are saying than I would.”

Amy Schumer Fights Back Against “Trolls”: “I Think I Look Strong and Healthy”

Justin Stephens/Comedy Central(LOS ANGELES) — Amy Schumer is standing up for herself against online “trolls,” with an Instagram photo of herself in a one-piece bathing suit.

The photo was taken over the weekend on a beach in Hawaii, where the star of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer was vacationing with boyfriend Ben Hanisch.

“I meant to write ‘good morning trolls!'” the comedian’s caption began. “I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you’ve never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone.

“This is how I look,” she continued. “I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like miss trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!”

Back in April, Schumer spoke out against the inclusion of her name on the cover of Glamour magazine’s “Chic at Any Size” special issue.  

“I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous.”

Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive subsequently defended the magazine’s cover while also apologizing to Schumer on Twitter.

Suspect in Arizona Highway Shootings Taken into Custody

Arizona Department of Public Safety(PHOENIX) — A man who allegedly shot at passing cars while driving the wrong way on a highway was taken into custody Wednesday morning, according to police.

The suspect, whose name was not released, is in his mid-30s and a resident of Phoenix, according to Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Damon Cecil.

Multiple police agencies, including DPS and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, responded to reports of someone shooting at passing cars on Highway 87 near Gilbert, Arizona, Tuesday night.

Cecil said two vehicles had been shot, one even catching fire because of the gunfire.

The suspect then drove to a convenience store and allegedly carjacked someone. He then fled north on State Route 87.

“This was an active-shooter situation,” Cecil said.

At least five vehicles, including a DPS patrol car, were shot. Cecil said there were multiple reports from people who may have been shot, but did not stay at the scene. Troopers are investigating.

The Mesa Police Department air unit found the suspect’s abandoned vehicle in the desert near milepost 201, Cecil said. The suspect was found roughly a quarter-mile away in the fetal position.

Authorities said the suspect was alive, but not responsive and not listening to commands. A K-9 was released and bit the suspect, who was eventually taken into custody.

He suffered a minor injury and was taken to a hospital for treatment, officials said.

At least two people were injured in the shootings. One person was “grazed” by a bullet to the head, but refused medical treatment.

A second person was shot in the leg and drove to the casino for help. That person’s injury is considered to be non-life-threatening.

No officers or troopers were injured.

Highway 87 is shut down in both directions because of the investigation. Cecil said it would remain closed for several hours.

Cecil said “multiple rifles,” including a semi-automatic AR-15, were found by the suspect’s vehicle, along with ammunition and body armor.

He will be booked on several counts of aggravated assault, carjacking and other criminal charges.

Chaotic Scene Erupts Outside Trump Rally in New Mexico

iStock/Thinkstock(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) — A protester was arrested after a chaotic scene erupted outside a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico overnight, which left several officers injured after being pelted by rocks.

 

 

Throngs of protesters gathered outside the rally in Albuquerque and several protesters were escorted out of the rally Tuesday evening.

Police confirmed to ABC News that they used pepper spray and smoke grenades to control the situation.

At one point, protesters broke through a barricade erected by police, rushing the convention center where Trump was speaking. While Albuquerque police prevented them from getting inside, police say protesters started to throw rocks and bottles at their horses.

It was Trump’s first campaign event after a brief hiatus from the trail. He last spoke at the NRA’s annual convention after receiving the group’s endorsement on Friday.

The business mogul was met with familiar faces, but protesters were also an hand — angry at the presumptive nominee’s presence.

Dozens broke through barricades, threw rocks at police and disrupted the event. Many linked themselves to barricades to prevent themselves from being removed.

Inside, Trump spoke to thousands of his supporters. But as he made his remarks, he was interrupted several times by protesters. One woman trying to avoid removal tried to lock herself to a metal barricade. Police were forced to carry her out of the arena.

 

 

“This is so exciting, isn’t it?” Trump said when another protester was escorted out by police. “Still wearing diapers, look at this guy! I’m telling you the kid looks like he’s 10 years old,” Trump added.

Even amid protests, Trump continued to tout his more controversial policies. Declaring that he would “build that wall” and vowing to keep Syrian refugees out of New Mexico.

He also hit his presumptive rival Hillary Clinton for being bad for the economy and jobs, joking that she still hasn’t beaten “crazy” Bernie during the Democratic primary.

And he went on to address Clinton’s recent attack — a campaign web video that quoted a comment he made in 2006, saying “I sort of hope” that the real estate market would crash so that Trump could “make a lot of money.”

Trump, in turn, called her a “low life.”

“I’m a businessman — that’s what I’m supposed to do. That’s what I’m supposed to do. I mean, I’m a businessman, so when the housing market goes down — I like it if it goes down,” he said.

Curry Says ‘Series Isn’t Over’ After Falling Behind 3-1 to Thunder

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Don’t count them out just yet.

Despite now trailing the Western Conference Finals 3-1 to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry says, “The series isn’t over.”

“We’ve got to believe in ourselves,” Curry said after his team lost 118-94 to the Thunder in Game 4 Tuesday. “There’s obviously frustration.”

Tuesday night’s defeat was the second straight loss for the Warriors and marked the first time the team, which set an NBA record this year for the most wins (73) in a regular season, lost back to back games.

“It’s a terrible feeling once again not stepping up and being ourselves and playing our game,” Curry told reporters. “But I think we’re a special team. This isn’t how we’re going to go out.”

The Warriors will have a chance to get back in the series on Thursday when they return home to Oakland, California for Game 5. Should Golden State lose, they will be eliminated from the playoffs.

“The idea now is to go home and get one win,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Do that, and we put some pressure on them and we’ll see what happens.”

Indy 500 Stinger Auction to Raise Money for Children Fighting Cancer

Courtesy Window World Stinger(INDIANAPOLIS) — The Indianapolis 500 is kicking off its 100-year anniversary by auctioning off an iconic car to help children fighting cancer.

For racing fans, The Stinger is a priceless piece of history. It is an interpretation of the Marmon Wasp, the car known for winning the first-ever Indianapolis 500.

Commissioned by exterior remodeling company Window World, The Stinger celebrates a century of Indy 500 legends. Veteran driver John Andretti traveled thousands of miles across the country to have the car signed by Indy 500 veterans.

With nearly 250 signatures, including those from four-time winners A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser Sr., it is considered to be one of the greatest rolling autograph collections in motorsports.

“This is such a unique car marked by the fearless spirit of so many veteran drivers. We’re confident we will see bidding amounts beyond our wildest dreams — all to help children have a future they deserve,” Andretti said.

The car will be auctioned off May 25, four days ahead of the race at the Dallara IndyCar Factory. All of the money made will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

“We anticipate it will sell for $1 million or more. While The Stinger is a trophy for an elite group of drivers, it is more importantly a symbol of hope for children battling for their lives.”

Several other items will be sold at the auction, including tickets for a private tour of Jay Leno’s garage, an evening at Jimmy Kimmel Live, a Grand Prix of Sonoma weekend package, an Indy 500 Experience package and other memorabilia.

Boat Carrying Hundreds of Migrants Capsizes Near Libya, Killing at Least Five

File photo. iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — An overcrowded boat carrying hundreds of migrants capsized today in the Mediterranean Sea, killing at least five, according to the Italian Navy.

Roughly 562 people had been pulled to safety off the coast of Libya, but there was a possibility the death toll could rise, an Italian navy official told ABC News.

Search efforts are ongoing.

The Italian Navy’s Bettica patrol boat spotted “a boat in precarious conditions off the coast of Libya with numerous migrants aboard,” it said in a statement.

The waters near Libya have become a hot spot for perilous voyages such as this one, as thousands of people have sought refuge from war-torn regions of the Middle East in recent years — the bulk of whom are refugees escaping from Syria.

Amnesty International, a non-profit organization focused on human rights, estimated in February of this year that “more than 50% of Syria’s population” was displaced as a result of war.

“One-in-every-two of those crossing the Mediterranean this year — half a million people — were Syrians escaping the conflict in their country,” the report said.

What to Know About the New Taliban Commander After US Drone Strike

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The Taliban named its newest leader Wednesday, just days after U.S. drone strikes killed former chief Mullah Mansur.

Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada, previously the deputy to Mansur, will take command of the extremist group, according to a Taliban spokesperson. The group released a photo of Akhundzada with the announcement.

Just hours after Akhundzada’s leadership was announced, the Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing of a minivan in Kabul, which killed at least 10 people. In a statement, the Taliban said the attack was revenge for the executions of six Taliban prisoners by the Afghan government several weeks ago.

Wednesday’s attack, along with the U.S. targeting of Mansur, signal little hope for peace prospects between the Taliban and Afghan government.

A U.S. intelligence official told ABC News the Taliban can either choose to double down on its military focus or choose to work toward reconciliation, a path which has failed to gain traction in the past.

The official said Akhundzada’s appointment will have little affect on the battlefield — aggressive attacks by the Taliban are still expected as this fighting season begins.

Who is Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada?

Akhundzada, 47, was the former chief of the Sharia-based justice system during the Taliban’s five-year rule over Afghanistan, which ended in 2001 with the U.S.-led invasion. He is from the Noorzai tribe and spent most of his life in Kandahar city in the south of Afghanistan.

The Taliban also touted his background in religious studies and experience as a Jihadi leader, in the statement.

Taliban Acknowledges Mansur’s Death

His appointment to the Taliban’s top position comes the same day that the group acknowledged Mansur was killed in a drone strike over Pakistan on Saturday.

The Pentagon said that strike was “defensive” because Mansur was actively involved in plots against U.S. and coalition personnel inside Afghanistan.

During a trip to Vietnam on Monday, President Obama confirmed Mansur was killed in a U.S. strike he had authorized.

The operation targeting Mansur appears to be the first “defensive strike” to have taken place inside Pakistan and required special negotiations under new guidelines for air strikes set last year. Pakistan has previously been accused by both the U.S. and Afghan governments of providing shelter for Taliban leaders.

“We can adjust authorities or take things higher up the chain of command to get approvals and that’s what we did in this case,” Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said.

The timing of the airstrike had to do more with opportunity and location, to ensure civilian casualties could be avoided as much as possible, he said.

A Different Kind of Announcement

The Taliban’s quick naming of Akhundzada is in stark contrast to how the group handled past leadership changes.

They waited two years to acknowledge the death of one-eyed leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, who the U.S. had hunted for over a decade, and only did so after the Afghan government announced in 2015 that he had died in a Pakistani hospital in 2013.

Following that announcement, a senior Taliban official confirmed to ABC News that Omar had died in 2013 of tuberculosis and was buried in the restive region along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

It wasn’t until Omar’s death became public that the Taliban officially instated Mansur as the new leader, although it was rumored that he was secretly running the organization for the two years that Omar was deceased.

This formal media announcement of Mansur’s death and Akhundzada’s appointment as the new chief marks a different strategy for the organization.

President Obama Lectured by Japanese PM over Okinawa Murder

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(SHIMA, Japan) — In a news conference where he was harshly lectured by the prime minister of Japan, President Obama extended his “sincerest condolences and deepest regrets” for what he termed a “tragedy” in Okinawa, after a former U.S. Marine is suspected in the death of a young Japanese woman.

“The U.S. will continue to cooperate fully with the investigation to ensure that justice is done under the Japanese justice system,” Obama pledged.

Japanese police say Kenneth Franklin Shinzato, a 32-year-old former U.S. Marine, confessed to stabbing and strangling a 20-year-old office worker on the island of Okinawa.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe emerged from the bilateral meeting with Obama, announcing live on Japanese television that he raised a formal protest over the death that he says shocked not only Okinawa, but the people of Japan.

“I firmly launched a protest as the Japanese prime minister in regards to the most recent case in Okinawa,” Abe said right off the top of his statement. “The entire time for the small group discussion was spent on the specific case in Okinawa, and I feel profound resentment for this self-centered and despicable crime.”

Abe said he feels “profound resentment” when thinking of the victim, calling it an “utterly despicable crime” that Japan will investigate in a “rigorous manner.”

“Japan was shocked,” Abe said. “I conveyed to the president that such feelings of the Japanese people should be taken to heart sincerely.”

Abe said the entire time for the leaders’ discussion was spent on the murder case and urged Obama to “take effective and thorough means” to prevent a re-occurrence.

Obama emphasized that the United States is “appalled by any violent crime that may have been committed by any U.S. personnel or U.S. contractor.”

“We consider it inexcusable and we are committed to do anything we can to prevent any crimes like this from taking place,” Obama stressed. “We want to see a crime like this prosecuted here in the same way that we would feel horrified and want to provide a sense of justice to a victim’s family” back in the United States.

The Japanese have long resented U.S. military conduct off base, pointing to several incidents over the years of rape and criminal activity. The public airing of grievances in Japan — the United States’ closest Asian ally — sets a tense tone for the rest of the trip that culminates in an historic “non-apology” presidential visit to Hiroshima on Friday.

A White House official said the president expected the case would come up but disputed Abe’s assertion that it was the sole focus of the meeting. The official said Obama and Abe also discussed coordination on the G7 scheduled for Thursday, as well as other bilateral and regional issues.
