House of Gucci dialogue trainer admits that Lady Gaga's accent is more Russian than Italian

HouseEven before she hit the screen, the pop star was known for her eccentric, exaggerated personality, wore a dress made of dripping flesh and dived in a giant egg at the Grammys for days in the futuristic sphere. And if Gaga's press run for A Star Is Born - in which she repeatedly spoke of the power of a person in her corner and the rumors that she and Bradley Cooper had a secret affair with that performance at the Oscars - played strong - we should know what would come when Gaga was cast as Patrizia Reggiani in Ridley Scott's House of Gucci. It was no different this time, and in the name of devotion, Gaga has gone as far as she has come before. On the press tour leading up to the film's premiere later this month, Gaga spoke about her process of finding an authentic portrayal of Reggiani. There was a lot of talk about Gaga's accent because she found it "almost impossible" to speak as a blonde in dialect and "immediately" had to dye her hair dark. She also said that she worked on her accent for six months before leaving for Rome and never broke character. "I'll be completely honest and transparent: I lived as her [Reggiani] for a year and a half," Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, told British Vogue. “I spoke about it with an accent for nine months. The wild real story behind the Gucci assassination film by Lady Gaga and Adam Driver "I started with a certain dialect from Vignola, then I started working in the higher-class language that would have been more appropriate in places like Milan and Florence." added. "In the movie, you'll hear that my accent is a little different depending on who I'm talking to." In the first reaction to the film's trailer, there was chatter that Gaga's accent sounded a little more Eastern European than that of a murderous celebrity darting around Italy. The Italian actress and dialect trainer Francesca De Martini agrees. "I feel bad saying this, but her accent isn't exactly an Italian accent, it sounds more Russian," she laughs at The Daily Beast. De Martini was brought to House of Gucci as a dialogue coach to help Salma Hayek in her portrayal of Naples-born Giuseppina "Pina" Auriemma. It was a particularly fun appearance for De Martini, having seen the Reggiani media circus on trial for hiring the hit man who murdered her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci in 1995. While De Martini originally auditioned for a few roles in Film when she reached the final rounds of casting before being turned down, about a week after the audition, she received a random call from the casting director asking if she could coach Hayek, because there is no dialogue coach on set. "I was surprised - House of Gucci was a really big production for [the country]," explains De Martini. So I was really surprised that I was called and I was surprised that there wasn't a dialogue coach on set. ”De Martini says she suspects there wasn't a coach on set because Gaga was already in Los Angeles with a coach had worked together and apparently none of the other American actors felt they needed an experienced ear. However, after filming her scenes with Gaga for a day, Hayek asked for help. "What happened was this: Salma shot for a day and then asked for a dialogue coach," says De Martini. "I think she heard the accent was wrong and she was worried - she wanted to do it well." Listening to Hayek's scenes with Gaga, De Martini said she immediately heard the accent was something was wrong: "I noticed when I was on set because I had headphones with Salma and heard what she was saying so that I could help her to get it right, so that I could also hear Lady Gaga." When you watch the trailer there are so many different accents, ”she adds, noting that Al Pacino sounds more New York Italian and Adam Driver's accent is almost non-existent. But overall, De Martini reveals that she enjoyed her time on set and working with Hayek, who did exceptionally well with the southern Italian accent. “We really had a lot of fun,” says De Martini. “I ran the lines with her and we tried to improvise a bit because most of the time during filming they have a little bit of improvisation, so we tried to see other options. So when they got out, she could hold the Italian accent while improvising, so we played with the lines. ”As for Gaga, she wants to leave the discussion of her accent and how long she worked on it behind and the New York Times say that everything gets a little too "sensational" as she stands by her mysterious Italian accent and offers, "I think it would have done more for me if I hadn't practiced it so much."

Celtic legend Martin O'Neill has some advice for Ange Postecoglou after a dramatic week for rival Rangers in the title race

Martin O'Neill says Postecoglou can't let what happened at Ibrox dominate his mind - he just has to keep his own house in order. (Author: Gardener)

Martin O'NeillAnge Postecoglou will look to make his first cup final as Celtic manager on Saturday when he pulls his side to Hampden to face St. Johnstone in the Premier Sports League Cup showdown. And considering all the circumstances of his appointment, one of his predecessors in the Hoops-Hot-Seat, Martin O'Neill, believes the Australian has done a good job to this day. Postecoglou inherited a squad that had several players looking to go to Aberdeen after losing captain Scott Brown. The new boss did not know his backroom staff and also had to recruit more than 10 new players. From the outside it looked chaotic at times. But since Midtjylland dropped out of the Champions League and lost their first Premiership game to Hearts, things have improved dramatically. European football beyond Christmas is assured, they are only four points behind Rangers at the top of the table and one game away from their first final in Scottish football. O'Neill is confident that there is still a lot of improvement on the horizon and sees similarities to his assumption of office at Celtic in the summer of 2000. The legendary Irishman - who won the triple in his first season, plus two more titles and Scottish Cups and the achievement of the 2003 UEFA Cup Final told The Sunday Post: “At this point, I think things are going as well as can be expected. “To me it looks like the fans really accepted Ange and are ready to give him any support he needs. “He got off to a shaky start, but he's gotten through this now and things are on the up. The football style is good and the players are responsive to its methods. “So, to be where they are now - considering he didn't know his backroom staff and had to use a number of first-team players - he can be satisfied. As the manager of Celtic, it's all about what you do in the next game. And then the game after that. “You just have to try to win as many football games as you can. “When I took on the Celtic trainer, I was dealing with an excellent Rangers team. They took the title from us last season by 21 points. Last season they were 25 points behind. We needed a few new players to do that, and we had to get more out of the ones we already had. “In our first game against Rangers we managed to beat them 6-2. “When I think about it, I can't underestimate how important this win was for everyone in the football club. We were hurt, but we still had our confidence. “We felt we could go ahead and win the Premier League. And that's a good thing. ”O'Neill watched the Hoops defeat Dundee at Dens Park last weekend and was impressed. “I thought Celtic played great, especially Jota and Kyogo Furuhashi. “Now it looks like both players could be blown over by a strong gust of wind, but they are extremely talented. “The fans seem to really enjoy them, and it's great for the fans to have heroes and know they are being entertained. "There is no doubt that both players were excellent recruits." O'Neill will be monitoring developments at Celtic Park over the coming weeks and knows that in January there will be a much clearer picture of how things will play out between then and May. He said: “It's good to have European football and the team has recovered well after losing the first two games of their section in the Europa League. “Successive wins against Ferencvaros mean that they either stay in the Europa League or relegate to the Conference League for the knockout phase. That’s all good. “But it's about winning the Premiership. “When I was a Celtic coach, I wanted to do well in Europe and we were aware of the club's fantastic history of winning the 1967 European Cup and getting to the final three years later. “We tried to win every game and if we were eliminated from Europe we would hurt. But we knew the priority was to win the title. “That was especially the case in my first season. “Rangers had won the previous two titles and we didn't want them to make it three in a row and really get rolling. “I'm sure Ange will think in the same direction. That is what the supporters want. "The Rangers stopped 10 in a row last season and Celtic doesn't want them to win the title again this season." A look over the city shows rivals looking for a new manager after Steven Gerrard's departure from Aston Villa. After O’Neill left Celtic, his next job was at Villa Park from 2006 to 2010 and he helped the club into the top six. He was with Celtic when Dick Advocaat moved “up” in December 2001 and was replaced by then Hibs boss Alex McLeish. But he claimed, “You have to be aware of what is going on elsewhere, but you cannot let it control your thoughts. “Steven Gerrard has just moved on and that could do very well for the Rangers for the next few weeks. “At this point we do not yet know exactly what the reaction will be. “Celtic definitely needs to focus on itself and make sure its own house is in order.

Cheryl is taking a break from performing after Sarah Harding's death

Cheryl, 38, has reportedly been in a dark place since the death of her former bandmate Girls Aloud Sarah Harding. (Author: Gardener)

CherylCheryl is set to step down from her engagements following the death of her former Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding. Sarah died of breast cancer on September 5, aged 39, and Cheryl has not made a public appearance since finishing a Birmingham Pride performance last month. A source has since stated that Cheryl is "taking a little break to prioritize her well-being". Speaking to Closer magazine, the source said, “The shock and devastation hit you so hard. "She doesn't think about performing, so she takes a little break to prioritize her wellbeing." The source added: "Sarah's death was announced by her mother on Instagram and Cheryl previously spoke of her grief as she paid tribute to her bandmate - whom she had reconciled with in recent years." It comes after Cheryl thanked her fans for the "amazing night" after performing on the stage at the Mighty Hoopla Festival in Brixton last month, just hours before Sarah died. On her Instagram stories, the singer admitted, "A lot happened in between" as she raved about how "amazing" the crowd was while also sharing a BTS video of her performance. So I know it's been a minute since Hoopla, but I really wanted to come back to it just to say thank you for a great night. “I had the best time. You were amazing. A lot happened in between, but I really had the best night. So you're major and I can't wait to see you again. ' Cheryl shared the behind-the-scenes video of her gig on Instagram and wrote, "I love you all, thanks for a great night @mightyhoopla." Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, 35, who was on stage at the festival, commented: "The best night." The performance marked Cheryl's great return to the music scene after taking hiatus from her singing career after the birth of her four-year-old son Bear. Just three weeks after Mighty Hoopla and Sarah's death, Cheryl pulled out of her planned Birmingham Pride gig as she continued to mourn her former bandmate. Cheryl was supposed to headline the event but went to her Instagram Stories the night before to reveal that she would no longer appear. She shared a sincere message with fans admitting that she was "emotionally, mentally, or physically unable to perform" as she struggled to cope with Sarah's death. Cheryl wrote: “Saying goodbye to someone you've spent so much of your life with is like nothing else. “On that note, I'm sorry, but I really am in no position to perform for you emotionally, mentally or physically this Saturday at Birmingham Pride. “I have the feeling that I just need a little time now to sit with my feelings and process the grief. Birmingham Pride and Insider had previously revealed that while battling heartbreak, Cheryl was determined to fulfill her commitment to the event. Sources told The Sun: “Cheryl is going to make headlines this weekend as planned despite her heartbreak. She's devastated by Sarah's death, but she also knows that the last thing Sarah would have wanted was for her to let her fans down. ' Sarah, who also had a model and a lead role in the St. Trinian film series, died just 13 months after her diagnosis of terminal cancer was confirmed. Her death was announced on social media by her devastated family. Cheryl, who had chart success with Sarah for more than a decade, took to Instagram after her death and shared a picture of her bandmate along with a caption praising Sarah's fans for their support during their final months. She wrote: “Even though we knew that day was coming, I somehow still fail to say that our stunning, unique, crazy, quirky, kind and soft hearted girl has left. “As I try to navigate through these painfully weird and terribly unfamiliar waves of disbelief and finality I am experiencing, I would like to express my condolences to all of our GA fans. We have been like an extended family for as long as we know so many of you by name. “I wanted to make sure you knew how much your love and continued support meant to Sarah in her most vulnerable times ... love. Kimberley Walsh, Nicola, Nadine Coyle and Cheryl were in the chart-top band with Sarah from 2002 to 2013.

Is Timothée Chalamet a movie star? (Split)

Quickly, which of the following statements is Timothée Chalamet describing? He's the brightest male star of his generation. He is an actor who has starred in a handful of independent hits ("Call Me by Your Name", "Lady Bird"), but has never really opened a movie in the classic sense. It's a clothes horse with a futuristic-surreal Haider-Ackermann-meets-Gustav-Klimt flair for fashion - suits in fuchsia, metallic silver and hot flowers-on-black, tucked-in sweatpants, the electric blue silk pajamas - Look - that is the straightening up and redefining of the male style. He's an old Hollywood power player with 20-20 feelers who knows how to say the right thing. He's a groundbreaking millennial with a witty flair for his own idiosyncrasy. He looks like a hacker for computer hackers. He looks like a more glamorous Daniel Day-Lewis. In truth, Timothée Chalamet describes each of these statements. But it makes him an actor who both compliments and contradicts his era - or, more specifically, contradicts it. By that I mean: imagine if Chalamet had come 30 years ago. After all, we are now in the post-movie star age. Or at least in an era that doesn't exactly shape movie stars. Instead, it shapes people who show up in franchise films and may appear like stars for a moment, until that moment passes and they're just no longer the focus. This is not a comment on the actors or their talent; and it is not to say that the fame itself is fleeting. But maintaining fame is more of a balancing act than it used to be, which is why Timothée Chalamet can seem like a really big star and at the same time like someone who is still waiting for the film that towers over him. According to the logic of 21st century franchise film culture, "Dune" should be that film. Its box office numbers are spun as just good enough to get through (with the simultaneous opening on HBO Max being offered as a sort of card to get out of underperforming prisons), though all over the world as we've known it for decades sounds like a second weekend -Take of 15.5 million US dollars for such a gigantic film as "Dune" not exactly after a champagne number. If Chalamet were great in the movie, it wouldn't matter how well he does. And he sure isn't bad at it. But for me, and I say that as a big fan of Timothée Chalamet, I think he gets lost in it a little. He's at the center of the action, looking like Edward Scissorhands' brother on the red carpet in his curly head of hair and black leather armor suit, but for much of "Dune" it's hard to know what exactly we're trying to do . The character's messianic trappings don't feel like they appear anywhere deep within Chalamet itself, who comes across as stoic and rather calm in the face of all the sand and tumult that swirls around him. "Dune" has a size that makes it a nice pedestal for chalamets cerebral magnetism for beautiful boys. But the film has a blurring, a meditative “Star Wars” -go-in-the-art-house-quality, which Chalamet does not do a favor as an actor. I thought he had more power and heroic energy a few years ago in "The King" (2019), a neo-Shakespearian historical-political daredevil at the royal court, in which he invested the young man, the King of England with a neurasthenic -Rock star allure. In this movie he had the X factor. (You can't fake the X factor.) But I'm not sure he fully got it in "Dune". With its sequel, which has now been given the green light and is due to be released in two years' time, "Dune" feels like a lush stopover for Chalamet. It actually counts as his prestige version of a comic book movie, his way of playing the blockbuster game, and maybe that's why he can't be quite the star you want him to be. However, we shouldn't forget that Timothée Chalamet, at his best, is a great actor who can seemingly anything. He is 25 years old and of the little more than a dozen films he has appeared in, he is captivating in a striking array of roles. After loving the cunning sensibility of his performance as a tender soul in 2017, entangled in the passion and danger of a true - and forbidden - love affair on Call Me By Your Name, I was shocked to see how brilliantly he played an unfeeling high -School Lothario in "Lady Bird". "Beautiful Boy" was a poorly addictive drama, but there was something fearless about the way Chalamet brought out the character's destructive narcissism. And when you see him in the middle segment of "The French Dispatch," where he plays a mustached student leader who gets into the vortex of Wes Anderson's time-machine-on-lucky-pill-flight-of-fancy version of the college riot that made the events from May 1968 in Paris, you can see his joke as an actor. He is the student “revolutionary” as a bourgeois hobbyist and the most bizarre of all erotic adventurers. What Chalamet now has to find is a role to merge with, referring to his qualities as - Warning! His appearance in "Little Women" was a stepping stone, but Greta Gerwig's film was an ensemble piece and it wasn't exactly focused on him. Chalamet needs a film that does for him what “Titanic” did for Leonardo DiCaprio or “Fight Club” and “Ocean's Eleven” did for Brad Pitt: Define him as an alpha star - someone who turns every scene into a vehicle for transformed its mystique. Maybe “Wonka” out in 2023 will be that movie. (I'm not holding my breath on Dune II: More Sand.) One thing I predict is that over the next five years, Chalamet will see an appearance evolution that will increase his on-screen exposure. At the moment it's an extraordinary camera subject, but with an undeniably boyish aspect. Brad Pitt didn't become a star until he was in his late 20s, and Daniel Day-Lewis didn't fully become Daniel Day-Lewis until he was in his early 30s. Chalamet might turn out to be the greatest male movie star since Pitt, but the trap he has to avoid is that of a certain passivity that's too cool for school. Great screenings are about actors who seize the day with every fiber of their being. Chalamet still plays young men to whom things happen. He will rise if he plays the one who makes it possible.

Edvard Munch's The Scream times three, Andy Warhol, a library that serves cocktails - forget the fjords, Oslo in Norway plays the cultural tourism card

Norwegian landscapes are sublime. Mirror-like fjords, romantic mountains and rugged coastlines - all guarded by the shimmering dance of the northern lights - attract adventurous tourists and filmmakers alike, including those behind the current blockbuster Dune and the latest James Bond film No Time to Die. But what about tourists who prefer a more urban experience? Is it the land for them? (Author: Gardener)

The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, which houses works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Cindy Sherman, among others, has been expanded to include the Munch Museum on the Norwegian capital's waterfront, and a national museum will open in 2022. Photo: Getty Images Mirror-like fjords, romantic mountains and rugged coastlines - all guarded by the shimmering dance of the northern lights - attract adventurous tourists and filmmakers alike, including those behind the current blockbuster Dune and the latest James Bond film No Time to Die stand. But what about tourists who prefer a more urban experience? Norway is not in the top 50 tourist attractions, ranks behind Bulgaria and Belgium, and although it has beautiful cities - Alesund's Art Nouveau Islands, Bergen and its UNESCO-protected Hansekai and Fredrikstad water fortress, to name just three - the capital Oslo doesn't stand out as a prime travel destination. Perhaps this is partly due to the high cost of food and drink compared to other European countries, but also to the fact that for many travelers there is no clearly identifiable Oslo, such as the romanticism of Paris, the urbanity of London or the canals of Amsterdam. The Munch Museum is the city's latest architectural addition. Oslo, however, forges a new identity, led by the culture and contemporary architecture on the city's fjord side, creating a walkable waterfront with an array of museums, galleries and cultural moments. To the west, the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art has been located on its peninsula since 2012, designed by architect Renzo Piano and home to a growing collection of contemporary art by Cindy Sherman, Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol. The building opened as a train station in 1872, but the British architect David Adjaye has given it a contemporary liveliness through an eventful sequence of rooms that was completely unexpected from its exterior courtesy. Around it is the gigantic National Museum, which is due to open in June 2022. There will be more than 5,000 works from the 15th. Follow the water's edge and stroll through the shadow of the brick modernism of the town hall, past the castle and past moored cruise ships to the glacier-like opera house designed by local architect Snohetta. The upcoming National Museum in Oslo. A sloping roof leads out of the water, which invites you to climb freely over the building. When it opened in 2008, Oslovites were pleasantly surprised by the expansive cityscapes and it's been an iconic urban space ever since. The surrounding area is full of pop-up restaurants, bars, floating saunas, and urban beaches, and beyond that lurks the city's newest architectural arrival, the Munch Museum. Proclaimed a unique "vertical museum", its 13 stories rise above the Opera House and offer sweeping views from the restaurant and bar on the top floor, even if the venues themselves aren't as inviting as they look down on. The heavy paneling and airport-like interior have been criticized, but inside is a huge collection donated to the city by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. People walk past the painting.

At the end, looking back at the Opera House and a perfect place to end a tour of Oslo's cultural waters, is the Deichman Bjorvika Library. Everyone can enter the public library of the year 2021 to browse the open shelves and also listen to music, watch films, play games or just watch people over a cocktail. It is a library like no other that speaks of a public spirit and generosity found all over Oslo - a city that puts culture first.

Injured Queen Elizabeth II will not be attending Remembrance Sunday, her planned return to the public

Queen Elizabeth II has sprained her back, Buckingham Palace says, preventing her from going public again after several weeks of health concerns. (Author: Gardener)

Queen Elizabeth II has sprained her back, Buckingham Palace says, preventing her from attending what would have been her return to Sunday service after several weeks of grave concern over the 95-year-old monarch's health . The Queen's decision, which was announced on Sunday morning just a few hours before her planned appearance, was made with “great regret” and “disappointment” about missing the service, the USA TODAY said in a statement. The palace said just days ago the queen was determined not to miss Remembrance Sunday, a sacred ceremony in the royal diary that usually brings out most high-ranking royals. More: Queen Elizabeth advised to rest for the next two weeks, canceled the upcoming schedule "It remains the Queen's firm intention to attend the National Memorial Service on Memorial Sunday, November 14," the palace said earlier. The palace's original statement received on Thursday by USA TODAY said the Queen has followed her doctors' advice and will not attend the service or opening session of the General Synod of the Church of England that she is presiding on Tuesday. She also missed the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance on Saturday night at the Royal Albert Hall, which she normally attends. Other high-ranking members of the royal family attended, including Prince Charles and his wife, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, and Prince William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge. When her medical advisors told the Queen last month that it would be best for her to take a break after a few busy weeks of personal engagements, she regretfully agreed, according to Buckingham Palace. She had spent one night in the hospital doing unspecified "preliminary investigations," which the palace only announced when she was back home at Windsor Castle the next day. More: Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan arrange their own Remembrance Day ritual in the LA Cemetery The memorial service has been held every November since 1919 in the Cenotaph (Greek for "empty grave") in Whitehall, the London street where government buildings are located offers some of the military pomp and ceremony Britain is known for. More: New photos show Queen Elizabeth in a mask for the first time, but she skips the mask for Remembrance Day In most of the previous memorial ceremonies of her 69-year reign, the Queen laid the poppy wreath at the memorial. It's a change of pace for the queen, known for the bright colors she usually wears in public. The last time she was seen in mourning colors was in April at the COVID-reduced funeral of her 73-year-old husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who was 99 years old, in Windsor. The only splashes of color are the little red fake poppy needles.British men and women (and many Europeans) wear lapels and shoulders in November. (Remembrance Sunday is also known as Poppy Day.) In the United Kingdom, Remembrance Sunday, which occurs the next Sunday to Armistice Day on November 11th, is similar to American Memorial Day. It is especially important to the Queen because she is one of the few British women who lived through and survived World War II when her father, George VI, was on the throne. It represents the closest link among living royals to British military history, says Nicoletta Gullace, professor of British history at the University of New Hampshire. “The Queen regards Remembrance Sunday prayer as perhaps the most sacred of her duties,” says Gullace.

Tesla: Why did Tesla shares fall in price? Tesla Prize Today

Tesla's share price fell sharply on Tuesday following Elon Musk's promise to sell or keep his Tesla stock, according to a Twitter poll (Author: Gardener)

Tesla's share price fell sharply Tuesday after Elon Musk promised to sell or keep his Tesla stock, according to a Twitter poll Tesla Price Today - and got Elon Musk's tweets ... after controversial tweets from the founder of electric vehicle manufacturer Elon Musk on the possible sale of its Tesla shares. Tesla's stock price, trading under the ticker TSLA, had fallen 130 points on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. on NASDAQ as the big tech guru once again demonstrated his power over the market and the company's stock price. The sharp sell-off in Tesla stock comes after the company hit a breakthrough market cap of $ 1 trillion in October - and Musk's net worth climbed even higher. But what did Elon Musk tweet - and is it causing Tesla's share price decline today? Here's what you need to know about Tesla stock's decline, the latest stock price for TSLA, and what happened. On Tuesday (November 9th) at 7:30 p.m., Tesla shares fell about 10% at a share price of 1,052. On Tuesday, shortly after 1 p.m., it had dropped to 1,030.40, which was the price it had already reached after the electric car giant had secured a 100,000 order for its Model 3 vehicles from the rental company Hertz. On Saturday night, Elon Musk took to Twitter to ask followers on the social media site if he should sell 10% of his Tesla stock - in a controversial move that is believed to largely become one with Tesla investors led to a huge sell-off. "A lot has been done lately with unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I suggest selling 10% of my Tesla stock," the SpaceX and Tesla founder tweeted on Saturday. In response to his Twitter poll, around 58% of respondents supported Musk's move to sell 10% of his shares as the founder promised, "I will stick to the results of this poll no matter which way it goes." Monday Tesla's share price fell 5% as the market reopened after Musk's tweets and a huge sell-off just weeks after the company hit a record $ 1,208.59 on Monday, November 1st. As the richest person in the world, Musk's disrespectful tweets can often be easily identified as the reason for large movements in the price of Tesla, as well as cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Shiba Inu Coin. But while the recent Tesla sell-off and stock slump are fueled primarily by the founder's Twitter poll, analysts have identified other possible causes for the sudden decline in Tesla stock. Musk's controversial tweets and poll to sell 10% of his own stock came after Musk's brother and Tesla board member, Kimbal Musk, responded to a SEC filing on the 5th. The company's SEC filings also show that Tesla CEO Robyn Denholm did the same on Nov. 1, when Tesla hit its new record course. Meanwhile, other market analysts have said that the reason Tesla stock fell amid the huge sell-off could be a sign that the company is lagging under the pressure of its staggering $ 1 trillion market valuation due to production delays and the high Sustaining demand for Tesla models.

Rose hears nothing every week and feels everything - what a woman

Rose has turned this year's Strictly year into something very special (Author: Gardener)

Neither Halloween nor Blackpool, unfortunately I have to say that I put up our Christmas tree just to give a theme this week. Thoughts in the Strictly Ballroom turn to musical week, which only seven of our eight remaining couples can look forward to. The show started with Tilly and Nikita's easy-going quickstep. This opening spot was the kiss of death for Adam and Katya last week and my hopes weren't raised by the weird CGI concept for this dance. Strictly's visual merchandiser seems to be running out of ideas as Tilly was forced to kindly hop through a gingerbread Paris with no explanation. "Thanks for another chance," she gasped breathlessly at the end of another lively routine, trying to appear as grateful as possible. I think someone told her she wasn't getting the phone voices she needed. The judges often used words like "difficult," but the overall impression was that their demeanor was not enough. Her three "7" and one "8" saw her skim the bottom of the leaderboard, and her eyes betrayed disappointment as the paddles went up. The judges somewhat killed my post-dance buzz with comments like "stiff" and Craig's claim that she was "trotting" at certain points. Even Motsi, the nice judge, said it wasn't the dance for her, and Shirley lamented the lack of flamenco. But I loved how he turned her into sexy roadkill with that final fall. Craig's use of his "6" paddle seemed particularly absurd when he'd just given Tilly a "7". AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington during the live show (Photo: Guy Levy / BBC / PA Wire) Exceptionally, Nadiya and Dan were allowed to stay in the training room this week and only FaceTime former BBC Breakfast Strictly participants were allowed to stay in their VT. Her American Smooth to "King Of The Road" was unaffected, a bit forgettable, and Craig was crushing about his lack of style. But Motsi countered that it was his best dance so far. "You ran away," shouted Anton and praised his grip. So far I've been apathetic to him, but Dan absolutely lost me with his "Can I say something" before they honked up the stairs. He's working so hard on his heart and mind that I'm starting to suspect it was his plan all along. The second I get a whiff of this falsely humble “I've never danced before” stuff, it triggers a fatal empathy retreat in me. A Dan-less Strictly would be absolutely fine with me. It was a complete turnaround for Rhys and Nancy this week as they danced their frenetic Charleston at a boat regatta for a complete change of pace. I don't think I've ever seen a more difficult routine that seems seemingly impossible for a human, and yet Rhys got it off. Motsi called it the Charleston of the season, while Shirley hooted, "I want to dance with YOU" and passed out during the choreography. "You smashed the house," said Anton and tried out some thoughtless youngsters. "A-may-zing," said Craig. Fin. I loved Rhys because the guy is clearly ready to land in traction if he doesn't let his dance partner down. Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec (Photo: Guy Levy / BBC / PA Wire) Sara and Aljaz's work was beautifully choreographed and their steps looked good, but lacked the dynamic energy and intensity that it needs. "A really good try," Shirley said generously. “Reliable,” said Anton. I feel like this is the week your luck runs out. I usually get a little sleep when it's samba time because, like Anton, I never relax watching one. The whole studio was in tune as he and John pumped party energy into the four corners of the room. Craig and Anton agreed that John had to throw his weight forward a bit to center his strength, but other than that, the guy is still perfect. I don't know what they're up to. Last week, like Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, he got brief adrenaline pumping, but this week we were back in a pleasant routine of questionable footwork. Craig called it "Snatch and Grab" which I don't think was related to street robbery, but he said it had "street realness" so it was hard to tell. Motsi asked him to think about his spine, which is very difficult when you are trying to entertain millions of people and giving your wife a reassuring smile while holding a beautiful dancer tenderly on the face. As always, Anton appreciated the Fleckerls, but the power of the Paso from last week was gone. They are so beautiful and sunny and good, but they are not finalists. At least Tom doesn't use emotional blackmail like Dan does. The show ended up arguably the best woman currently working on British television. Rose swept into the ballroom like a friendly mistral nine weeks ago and since then I can't really take my eyes off her. Giovanni Pernice, Rose Ayling-Ellis during the live show (Photo: Guy Levy / BBC / PA Wire) Something about their obvious goodness and straightforwardness stands out against the necessary, strained smile of a room full of exhausted people trying to get us into it to bring them to love. What she did this week during the selection of her couples for “Symphony” by Clean Bandit completely surprised me. When the music stopped and the couple continued to smile and move silently to the music in their heads, I cried like a baby along with the rest of the country. She dances to nothing. Every week. I also loved the simple joy of dancing and how it turned the show into something very special this year. It doesn't help to determine a winner for weeks to come, but I think she'd have to kick the paper hat off a puppy's head live to avoid storming this now. So Rhys and Nancy led the board, Rose and Gio just one point behind. AJ, Tilly and Dan all revel in the danger zone, but who is the least popular with the crowd? If Dan's rigorous effort to be loved continues to work, someone really good will be sent to a farm this week. Murder on the dance floor: As he continues to split the jury, I'm losing patience with Dan because he's taking up space where an interesting dancer might be. That's all I think when he dances. Because his villainous personality from the past really seems to be changing as this human ray of sunshine teaches him how to be a better guy. Sample Bingo: Nancy and Rhys went boating on a lake and then inexplicably practiced their vertebrae in giant rubber boots. Unforgettable Moment: Aside from the INCREDIBLE silent pause in Rose's dance, the highlight was Motsi's response to Craig's meanness about her lime green dress. "You are obsessed with me I KNOW." I think she could be my favorite judge. Most improved: Just because he was allowed to go off like a burning fireworks display again this week, Rhys wins the medal. A perfect result for a perfect Charleston.
