Queen

"I've Dated Girls As Black As Akon And As White As Casper"

Lil Romeo recently went public with his new girlfriend, who is a (white) college student and pagent queen. He appeared on Meredith Viera's talk show to remind people that he exists and to discuss the hate he received when he made his relationship public.

In the interview, he says;
"It’s sad because honestly if anybody knows me, all the girls I’ve dated, I’ve dated girls who’ve been as black as Akon and white as Casper. It don’t matter. It’s all about the heart. In this time and place, she’s the one who captured my heart. She could be blue, green or yellow and it would have been her.

Top 10 Quotes by Celebrity Siblings


Chris, Liam, and Luke Hemsworth
"One of the biggest inspirations before I started shooting came from my brother, when he texted me and said, "Hey, fatty, it's called 'The Hunger Games', not 'The Eating Games,' said Liam. "So I started working out a lot more and eating a lot less."

So "Who Is Fancy" finally revealed his identity on The Tonight Show this past week and nobody cared

An earlier post on here introduced us to the "mysterious" singer-songwriter Who Is Fancy, who released three music videos featuring different individuals lip-syncing to his song "Goodbye." His label set up a big PR campaign centered around his big reveal, which happened this past week on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where he finally performed his single in front of the world. Below is a video of him performing his song on The Elvis Duran show, released after his Tonight Show performance:



The big reveal didn't help his single get more radio play. In fact, it had the opposite effect, as it is beginning to drop on Pop Radio. Even though discounting his song to 69 cents on iTunes helped to break it into the Top 30, it is beginning to drop, as it now currently sits at number 49 on the overall iTunes Songs chart.

Clorox Sparks Racism Controversy Following Emoji Tweet

This week, Apple made headlines releasing a new batch of over 300 emojis with the iOS 8.3 update. Of particular note was the new batch of long-requested racially diverse emojis.

Which is why the following (since-deleted) tweet was an incredibly stupid idea:


Collapse )

Collapse )

Because I'm not about to post such blatant wank without offering a full scope of facts, I would point out that Yum! Foods/Taco Bell and a few other companies have been using social media to lobby for the addition of emojis relevant to their brand (in Taco Bell's case, it appears they are succeeding: the taco has allegedly been put in queue for consideration by Unicode Consortium, an NPO that regulates emojis and other computer text).
So, there is an argument for Clorox simply being incredibly stupid (maybe too many hours spent "testing fragrances" for their new products?), rather than this being deliberate racism. On the other hand, they have something of a history of "unintentionally" offensive ad campaigns, to the point where you somewhat have to wonder exactly how these ideas make it past the conceptualization stage without someone saying something? Of course, a single stupid tweet is much easier mistake to make than a full ad campaign, but, still really???

TBH, if there's an eye emoji and a brain emoji, a bleach emoji could have its uses. Still a terrible week to pitch this idea, though.

U2’s Fall From Grace

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

-ticket sales for the upcoming Innocence + Experience tour are down in the United States, a market the band usually can count on for support. Even worse, Americans aren’t listening to the band on the radio like they used to.

-Altogether, this tour and the album with which it’s associated show just how far the Irish band’s popularity has fallen in a little over a decade.

-If that shift happens, U2 would become another historic group dropped from relevance, wearing out their greatest hits on annual tours — something they looked like they might avoid a decade ago.

Misty Copeland on dancing Swan Lake with Brooklyn Mack: "Its incredible to be a brown swan."



On Thursday night Misty Copeland and Brooklyn Mack danced a historic Swan Lake with the Washington Ballet at the Kennedy Center. It was the first time ever that the two lead roles, Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried were both played by black dancers.

Misty said that Swan Lake was "not something I ever saw in my future, in terms of dancing the lead," and that "its incredible to be a brown swan."

Misty on preparing for the roles of Odette and Odile: "It takes so much out of you, not just physically. It's one of the most physically demanding roles in the repertoire. I feel like I've always connected with being that more fiery character, so I assumed Odile would be the one I connected with more, the black swan. But I've just fallen in love with Odette and I think the challenge for me, because I've been viewed, when you hear something over and over again from critics or the audience that you are not the soft, sylphlike dancer, it forces you to want to be that. It's been an amazing challenge and I can't wait to do it and show everyone."

Brooklyn Mack on being a role model: "At one time I was that kid looking up to somebody or trying to find someone to look up to. Not having anyone really who looks like you to look at can be disconcerting, at the least. I'm just hoping this performance will help to provide more hope and reinforcement for the youth. It's very important to give back and inspire this next generation, because that's the future. It shouldn't end with us. It has to keep going and grow and get better."

TV Critic Mistakes Kumail Nanjiani For Kunal Nayyar, Apologizes By Mistaking Kumail For Indian


A television critic for Salon confused Pakistani-American actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani for Kunal Nayyar, a British-Indian actor who looks and sounds nothing like Kumail.  The critic quickly apologized to Kumail for "conflating him with another Indian actor" even though Kumail is not Indian.  Oops!

The M.Night Shyamalan* twist is that the critic's name is Sonia Saraiya.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the name Saraiya - nah, not going to take my chances.

Sandra Bullock's Terrifed Phone Call To Police As Stalker Is Inside Her House With Her



Joshua Corbett broke into the Oscar-winning actresses' home last June, and is currently undergoing trial for charges that included stealing and burglary. The actress was alone during the break in, and saw the 39 year old man near the entrance to her attic. She quickly sealed herself into a panic room inside her closet, and called the police, who arrived 15 minutes afterwards. Corbett had been stalking Bullock, and when he was arrested he had letters he had written the star, one of which read: I love you, you are very special to me, and without you in my life there is only misery. I've waited and waited yet you never come. Corbett has plead not guilty. A tape of Bullock's phone call to police was played in court. Corbett has plead not guilty; he also has 19 felony weapons charges due to a large cache of guns found at his home. His bail is set at $2 million, and he faces up a possible 19 years in prison if convicted of all charges.

Celebrity Memes Are Illegal In Russia....






... if they don't reflect personality.

So decreed Roskomnadzor, the Russian government’s three-year-old media bureau, who has made an announcement saying that memes that do not appropriately reflect a celebrity’s personality will be illegal in the nation:

“These ways of using [celebrities’ images] violate the laws governing personal data and harm the honor, dignity and business of public figures.”

This recent announcement comes after the Russian singer Valeri Syutkin won in court over a meme that parodied another singer’s lyrics with his image. This new law is supposed to clarify the existing “personal data laws” in the nation.

Marina and the Diamonds talks about pop stars who pander to the gay community and more



On saying in 2012 that she doesn't want to be the cliche pop star saying "I love my gays!" and on when appreciation of gay fans becomes a cliche:
It's not that it's a cliche - it's more that, perhaps, I was cynical about it. I felt that people in pop use that to express themselves in that way for calculated means because they know the gay fan base is extremely loyal and extremely expressive and is a tastemaker demographic. You know what I mean? It's like, "Oh, god." It's insulting to both sides.

I kind of feel the same way now, because, yeah, of course I have a really strong gay fan base, and the fact is that it is a really enjoyable factor for me to have a really strong demographic because it makes the shows a lot more fun, for one, and because they are really expressive. But all types of people should be appreciated. I'm sure the gays would back me up on that!

On whether appreciation can turn into pandering:
On Twitter, I don't really like it when I see loads of messages from an artist saying (talks in baby voice) "I love you guys! I love you guys! I love you guys!" because I don't think there's any kind of intelligence in that. Also, how can you be genuine and say that so many times? Maybe that's when it becomes pandering, when you're dumbing down your fan base.
