Pitchfork reviews The Pinkprint

7.5
The Pinkprint defies expectations from both poles of her fanbase. It’s not a return to Mixtape Nicki, or a third round of Nicki The Brand’s world-conquering dance-pop. It’s an album by Onika Maraj. And it’s a serious album, in the sense that it asks to be taken seriously. If that seems audacious, consider that most rappers don’t have to ask.

i usually disregard pitchfork's reviews but i thought this reviewer was really on point and raised a lot of good points

Sam Smith confirms that he's dating one of his video extras, but he hasn't really told him yet



“It’s very early days. I’m talking very, very, very early days. But he’s really sweet. I met him on the video for Like I Can, he was one of 20 extras. It’s a surreal thing to be talking about because I haven’t even confirmed with him that we’re officially seeing each other.”

In a very Adele-like statement he also added:
"People need to realize I’m never going to be happy. The reason I do what I do is because I’m an artist who is always going to be blue about something."

The NHL has a mumps problem

 photo sidney_zps8eb0267d.jpg

No, this picture of Sidney Crosby is not distorted. This is what you look like when you have the mumps.

More than a dozen NHL players and referees have contracted mumps in recent weeks, with additional players tested amid fears that the disease could spread.

Players with the Anaheim Ducks, New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, Minnesota Wild and Pittsburgh Penguins have been affected so far. The viral infection can cause swelling of the salivary glands, fever, headache, fatigue and loss of appetite.

Sidney Crosby appeared in the locker room with a swollen face, a tell-tale sign of the disease. Crosby is past the infectious stage and could return to the team as early as today, Penguins officials said.

Tinashe's resolution for 2015: "Get better".



- Her favorite song off of "Aquarius" is always changing but right now it's "Cold Sweat".
- She lives with her parents but has barely been at home.
- She loves DJ Mustard but doesn't want to keep working with him because she doesn't want people to think that all her music is Mustard-ish or that he's responsible for her success.
- She thinks putting out a lot of material is needed these days. "The more albums, the better. The more music, the better. Why wait?"
- She recorded the demo for "I Luh You Papi".
- She thinks there's always room for improvement and her resolution for 2015 is to work on all aspects of herself. Health, relationships and, obviously, music. "Better music, better and bigger live shows, better music videos. Everything just needs some 'better'. That's my resolution. Get better."

New trailer for Backstreet Boys documentary


An emotionally open and honest film portrait of the biggest boy band ever, THE BACKSTREET BOYS, who take us through the highs and lows from boyhood to manhood that led them back into a London studio in 2012 to write a new album, make a film and plan their 20th anniversary re-launch. The reunion renewed friendships, but dynamic shifts reveal new and old tensions that need confronting and resolving. Directed by Stephen Kijak Stones in Exile, Scott Walker - 30 Century Man, this is a surprising and rewarding journey filmed over 2 years that delves into the extremes of fame, fortune, betrayal and renewal.

The Flash casts Cisco's brother and Captain Cold's sister









Nicholas Gonzalez, AKA Luke on Sleepy Hollow that nobody cared about and has since vanished, will be playing Dante, Cisco Ramon's older brother. According to the network: “Cisco’s handsome and charming older brother Dante, who is used to being the family favorite. Dante is a gifted pianist, but he never reached his potential and secretly resents Cisco’s success. When the brothers are thrust into extreme circumstances, Dante must rely on Cisco if they’re going to survive.”

He'll appear in episode 16, "Rogue Time", which is when we'll meet Captain Cold's sister Lisa Snart, played by The Tomorrow People's Peyton List, because CW likes to keep it in the family. She's described as wild and trying to prove to her older brother that she's got what it takes to be part of his Rogues. Of course she uses her sexuality to achieve her purposes and she's "put on a crash course" with Cisco. In the comics Lisa Snart is the villainous Golden Glider, who ice skates on ice her skates make? I think? Sounds very intimidating.

Haven't seen 'The Tomorrow People', so can't judge Peyton's acting, Cisco isn't my favorite but I'm looking forward to explore his backstory and give him more depth.

Sony Pulls 'The Interview'



source

The full statement from Buzzfeed:

In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.
Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.
