How Eli Goree Brought a Young Muhammad Ali to Life in One Night in Miami

https://instagram.com/p/CKCUc2brTHw


In his boxing training, Goree gained further understanding of the champion. “One of the sayings in boxing is that the goal is to hit and not get hit,” he says. “And I think that that's something that Muhammad Ali carried with him in his life. To say something and not be held back or contained by the response. Stay on your toes, always moving, always dancing, never a stationary target, never able to be kept in one place by what people expected.”

9-1-1: Lone Star and FOX accused of homophobia for cutting gay kisses from the show.

Ryan Murphy's '9-1-1: Lonestar' and FOX have been accused of homophobia for cutting down same-sex kisses that were originally featured in the trailer but not in the final cut. A kiss between TK and Carlos (and a head kiss) was cut and people were fuming. (#Tarlos are one of the most popular characters in the show.)

Beloved movies from the 1970s that still hold up today

Usually, I am indifferent, or I do not like the list I usually post but I actually think this list is pretty good. I have seen a few films on this list (including one that will be posting from the list) and some I really would like to see in the future. This list is again from Yardbarker (via MSN).

Ben Affleck Throws Ana de Armas in the Trash



Ben Affleck is moving on!

Right after his split from Ana de Armas made news on Monday, someone was seen trashing a life-sized, cardboard cut-out of the actress outside Affleck's Brentwood home. The same cut-out was used by De Armas and Affleck's kids to toy with the paparazzi last summer.

AND A PLOT TWIST:

Alejandro Baldwin says adios to Twitter, is taking a social media siesta



Alec Baldwin is apparently taking a break from Twitter, which I speculate means a PR person is finally stepping in. Baldwin has publicly quit Twitter before - in 2013 after threatening to "fuck up" a Daily Mail reporter, and in 2017 following backlash to comments he made regarding Harvey Weinstein's victims accepting settlements.

FYI he is still liking tweets! He managed to find the one tweet not dunking on him in his flounce post and liked it. Place your bets in the comments on how long this "break" will last! My personal guess, nine days.

The Weeknd (Vevo Originals) + Making Of

At the end of November last year, The Weeknd released a trilogy of live performances, put together by Vevo. These weren’t your standard live sets. They’re practically music videos in their own right with how well they are shot, lit, and presented.

Sexism in the music industry: Madonna & Christina Aguilera



This episode on this web series talks about two discs by two controversial artists, that faced huge backlash when released: Madonna’s erotica and Christina Aguilera’s stripped.

Released in 1992 simultaneously with Sex, a coffee table book containing explicit photographs of the singer. Erotica is a concept album about sex and romance, incorporating her alter ego Mistress Dita. Some songs take a confessional tone, influenced by the loss of two of Madonna's close friends to AIDS. The lead single suffered mainstream condemnation due to its explicit sexual imagery. Years later the album has been considered as one of the most revolutionary pop albums of all time, since few women artists have been so outspoken about their fantasies and desires.

Stripped was the second album of Christina Aguilera and marked the birth of her Xtina persona; transitioning from teen pop to an album filled with soul, rock, hip hop and Latin influences where Christina has creative control over the project, musically and lyrically. Despite most songs from the album discuss self-respect, sex and feminism, Christina was publicly trashed by her extra raunchy image that departed from her more innocent debut look and because of the lead single featuring an Aguilera dancing in a seedy location surrounded by mud wrestlers, furries and contortionists while wearing a bikini and butt-baring chaps. The album went on to become one of Aguilera's strongest albums on charts and legacy, influencing newer artists like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus, citing it as inspiration when recording.
