NYT Publishes TERF's Op-Ed on Caitlyn Jenner




White feminist Elinor Burkett published transphobic garbage masquerading as a thinkpiece and we should all really examine whether the existence of trans women is like, totally hurting feminism, y'all.

Highlights(?):

- Those who haven't lived their "whole lives" as women aren't real women

- The argument of being "trapped in the wrong body" is 'offensive' because it reduces women to their body parts, and it's like a white person transitioning to black and expecting to be welcomed into the black community(????)

#Mckinney Police Brutality Video + Celebs React

(Warning: video contains disturbing police violence, foul language, and excessive whiteness)


This video was posted on Saturday showing multiple police offers as well as random white passerby assaulting multiple black teens who were leaving a pool party after a fight broke out. As per the video's description:

"A fight between a mom and a girl broke out and when the cops showed up everyone ran, including the people who didn't do anything. So the cops just started putting everyone on the ground and in handcuffs for no reason. This kind of force is uncalled for especially on children and innocent bystanders.
-EDIT-
To some people saying that the cop pulled out his taser on the kid, it was not a taser it was a gun."

PC Music's GFOTY refers to Malian musicians as a "tribal band" and “Bombay Bicycle Club blacked up”

GFOTY, an artist signed to indie buzz label PC Music, has come under fire for racist comments that appeared in a recent interview. The source of the interview has censored the original image of her iMessages, but theQuietus was able to get a screengrab of the original.




In her iMessage, GFOTY refers to Malian kora players Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté as “Bombay Bicycle Club blacked up.” She has since responded, saying that she was trying to make a joke about appropriation but her joke fell flat.

Drake Says Apple Music Is Great for Musicians

-Eddy Cue, the Apple executive in charge of media, has just explained the music app. “When you think of Apple Music, it’s My Music, For You and New.” This means it’s split into several sections — which sounds as if they are a subset of several different music-buying services.

-The rapper Drake is up on stage to explain how the Internet has helped him connect with an audience. Now, he says, that will be easier with Apple Music. “It has been perfected and simplified by the great people at Apple,” Drake says.

Avicii Slams Madonna!

"Madonna ruined my track!"


Pop singer Madonna took to DJ and producer Avicii to produce most of her Rebel Heart album. He helped her come up with the title track "Rebel Heart" and many others, however Avicii says that Madonna's ego got the better of her.

"At the beginning we were all on the same page and then ...I wasn't happy with the final product." Avicii says "Madonna ruined my track!"

He says he prefers the leaked demo of  the title track over the version Madonna sloppily mixed later.
"I thought it was better. It was more me."

Avicii concluded by saying he would instead love to work with Adele and Rihanna.


Madonna's Rebel Heart turned out to be Madonna's lowest selling album in the past 20 years.

Jay Baruchel Moves Out Of Montreal, Shitstorm Ensues



Since I can't even C+P just one paragraph anymore, the basic gist is he's always been such a proud, long-time resident of the city that got fed up with francophone vs. anglophone politics and recently moved, much to the consternation of several people and publications in Quebec. Pretty interesting article about the phenomenon (not exclusive to just Jay) follows.

Zoe Saldana tried talking her husband out of taking her last name




"I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, 'If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.' But Marco looks up at me and says, 'Ah, Zoe, I don't give a s--t.'"

GMA sends out a tweet comparing Monday mornings to Mufasa's death


This morning the official twitter for Good Morning America sent out the above tweet that included a gif from The Lion King of Simba trying to wake up a dead Mufasa. Needless to say people didn't take it very well since not only did this moment break us as children (and who am I kidding this still destroys me now) but a lot of people said the tweet comes off as comparing waking up on Monday mornings to the loss of a parent.

The tweet has since been deleted.

Lindaaaaa and Elio (Big Name Fans in ASOIAF) are currently melting down on Twitter




Essentially, they're mad that despite their Big Name Fan status, GRRM disclosed what they view to be spoilers about The Winds of Winter to D&D and not to them. And they're calling everyone who's questioning them "retards" and "cunts" and blocking them. The replies on that status should give you some idea.

Who are these two, by the way? I'm glad you asked. Basically, Lindaaaa and Elio run westeros.org and are pretty chummy with GRRM himself. They helped write The World of Ice and Fire (the encyclopedia) and some fans believe they heavily influence Gurm himself with the story. Lindaaaa in particular is not a nice person at all, and here is a master post detailing why. She's racist, misogynistic, and all-around completely over-the-top, unprofessional, and childish. She absolutely despises Tumblr and ONTD (because we're chiefly female fans of the series) as well as fanfiction. She compares fanfic to pedophilia. That's all you really need to know about Lindaaaa. Oh, except for the fact that she believes literally every character in the books is white and should be cast with white actors.

There's a pretty big thread going on at r/asoiaf right now about this drama if you want more. This reflects extremely poorly on GRRM and the publishers (since Lindaaaaa and Elio are co-authors on a book with GRRM) and is a PR nightmare that I knew ONTD would enjoy.

1.Sparks
2.My Kind
3.One In A Million

All three were written/produced by Tove Lo and they all have her sound/feel to them, especially "One In A Million" which has Tove's signature "uh oh" sound.

4.Confetti

A strong EDM track that has an explosive chorus and torwards the end of the song, Hilary samples Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is A Place On Earth".

6.Lies

This song is most likely about Mike Comrie and features a chanting chorus that will get stuck in your head.
