ACL Post

From Austin360:

-"They came onstage blaring Queen’s “We Are the Champions” — and then threw all irony out the window, by actually proving it. Run The Jewels are untouchable. IIs there anyone in hip-hop with a live show this good?"
-"But mostly it was non-stop compliments for Austin, the crowd, and the year RTJ have been having. They felt grateful, and their excitement flowed through them into the audience. And the crowd was deep into this one. By far the most energized I saw on Friday."

-"This was a show for the college crowd, who knew all the lyrics of an act that is still miles from being a household name. But it was a winner for everyone else who ventured over in the early evening to catch them, because it seemed obvious from their set, that the more people listening to their music, the more energy feeds these guys."

ACL Highlights: Day One

I don't actually care about RTJ, I just wanna talk about ACL, but props to them!

ACL goers, give me pics and reviews!

Mods, this version has a video, please toss the previous one!

Andrew Garfield snaps during an interview




While promoting his new movie 99 Homes, Andrew Garfield snapped during an interview with NY Magazine's Vulture. He said (unprecedented ?) "Why the fuck am I doing this ? Coming in today to do interviews, I’m like, ‘Why?’ I know that I’m an actor and it's part of the job, and I feel lucky I get to do that, but with the interviews, it’s such a weird thing. What do I have to say?"

The interviewer then went on to ask questions about the movie to which Garfield replied: "It’s so heavy even talking about it. Hearing you talk, I just suddenly feel like my head is wrapped in cellophane. How do we wake up, how do I wake up? What do I do? Because I can stand here and be like, ’We need to fucking do shit.' I can say that. But if I’m not doing anything, what the fuckk am I really doing?"

Premiere of the Video of YAH LIFE!



In an obvious attempt to try and overshadow the premiere of the music video of your life, Flash, from current Queen of Pop Lorena Herrera, Lady Gaga released a basic cover from an unknown band from the 60s the same day. But fear not my fellow STANS, the video is right after the cut, and it is as AMAZING as you would expect from this Mexican World's sweetheart.

Without further ado, here it is!

Aren't you SLAYED, ONTD?! Have you accepted Lorena Herrera as your Lord and Savior, yet?

Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast calls out a sexist "writer" + sexist idiots on Twitter


best_coast: Sexism is alive and well people!!!!! This literally makes my blood boil. If you aren't happy with my show that's perfectly fine, but leave my looks + outfit out of it. @sffoghorn you should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing a "writer" to write this sick excuse of a live music review 👎👎👎



- Best Coast recently played a show at The Fillmore in San Francisco where a writer for the University of San Francisco's student newspaper objectified Bethany in a concert review (link to the article, good luck reading it w/o getting a migraine)

- Fans took to the newspaper's instagram to shame them for publishing the review

- Bethany then called out whiny pissbabies men on Twitter who clearly missed the point of her standing up for herself

UPDATED: The newspaper has issued a letter from the editors via their website.

Justin Bieber Thinks He Changed EDM Music, Shades Usher



I’ve done probably three or four albums that I haven’t released yet. I’ve gotten all of these different modes, and try to dive into different ideas, and I finally came up with something that was pretty genius. I have these collaborations with Skrillex and Diplo, like “Where Are U Now” that just took off. This is their first top 10 record. It just shows that we’re breaking barriers in the EDM world. I think people have been trying to do it for a while, making dance music, like Usher and all of those people, but I don’t think it’s been done in the right way.
Justin is such an ungrateful brat... And lol at him thinking his music is genius and "breaking barriers"

Hope Solo WILL face domestic abuse charges


  • In June 2014, Hope was accused of domestic assault by her half-sister and 17 year old nephew
  • Solo initially told police on the scene she was the victim
  • After investigation Hope was charged with two counts of domestic violence in the fourth degree
  • A judge dismissed the case back in Jan 2015 on procedural grounds
  • However, recently the state appeals court reversed lower court's decision to dismiss the case so Hope WILL face charges once again
  • Hope's lawyer: "We are shocked and disappointed by the judge's ruling this morning. However, we maintain our position that the charges in this case should have never been filed, that the original trial court's dismissal of the case was correct, and we plan to file an appeal of today's decision with the Court of Appeals."
  • Hope's sister: [tw: domestic abuse]"She grabbed him by the head and she kept slamming him into the cement over and over again, so I came from behind her, and I pulled her over and, you know, to get her off my son. And then, once she got off, she started punching me in the face over and over again."

Showbiz Analysis with The Nanny




  • Fran Fine Drescher talks surviving uterine cancer: "I am a cancer survivor — 15 years well. I had uterine cancer. [It] took me 2 years and 8 doctors to get a proper diagnosis. And by the grace of God, I was still in Stage 1. So I really feel like I got famous, I got cancer and I lived to talk about it..."


  • Also, how after writing a book and listening to the stories of other survivors, she decided to not end up there, but to make a prevention and detection movement: " ...We can begin to form a group of like-minded thinkers who wanted to, not only insure that every person gets diagnosed in Stage 1 when it’s most curable— catch it on arrival 95% survival, but also to transform from being a patient into a medical consumer, to know what the early morning whispers are of the cancers that may affect you, to know what tests are available— because they may not even be on the menu at the doctor’s office.”


  • Finally, she gives us a little hope for a Nanny reunion: "You know, for years I said ‘no’, now I don’t know. Who knows? Maybe. Could be. I like moving forward. And it’s such a classic. And it’s still on the air. But you know, I love the people that were in it. I loved the series...”

Thank you for your time! Favorite Nanny episode?

Justin Bieber says 1D released on the same day as him for promo





-Justin Bieber's Album "Purpose" and 1D's "Made in the A.M. (After Malik)" both release on Nov. 13th

-Justin already threw shade at 1D with his "when you release your album on the same day as Justin Bieber" scared face

-Louis responded with one of his weaker playing at O2 Arena faces (which Justin was once hours late for a concert at)

-Justin backtracked and said that he's excited about the release and wishes 1D luck since Niall is his good friend (save yourself Neil!)

-Justin is now saying that 1D released the same day as him for promo and as a strategy, since he announced his date first

-1D's last album #justiceforFOUR (2014) opened with 387,000, while JB's last album Believe (2012) opened with 374,000

-1D have always released in November and are part of Columbia Records, so the other slots Nov. 6 (#BuyGetWeird) and Nov. 20 are occupied by label mates Little Mix and Adele

Source: Twitter

Are 1D's team doing promo for once? This is a good way to get 2 crazy stan bases to buy more albums. Based on their previous album sales, I would say 1D have the #1 for the week before Adele shakes up the industry.

Caleb from the popular Youtube vlogging channel Bratayley passed away at 13

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yesterday at 7:08PM Caleb Logan Bratayley passed away of natural causes. This has come as a shock to all of us. Words cannot describe how much we will miss him. His incredibly funny, loving and wonderful spirit made us all fall in love with him as a YouTuber, friend, brother and son. We know you tune in to watch each day and eagerly anticipate new videos, but ask that you bear with us while we deal with this tragedy as a family. Please help us honor our, baked potato.

EDIT: They just uploaded a vlog from the day before Caleb died.

I don't watch their channel but this is a very popular Youtube channel so I thought it was worth sharing.

Bey

OVO Sound Radio premieres official version of "Can I" by Drake & Beyonce.



So this track leaked a few months ago when someone on Instagram was leaking snippets of what was supposedly Drake's Views From The 6 album. One of the leaked songs was a Drake & Bey collaboration that consisted of two Drake verses and Beyonce singing "Can I? Baby?" for two minutes. The official track isn't too different from the leaked version but at least they finally acknowledge the song exists.

The beat is hot, the lyrics are wack. Could've been a good cuffin season song. Feel like it had potential but it still sounds incomplete. I mean, if you got Beyonce on a track, you couldn't have found a better way to use her? Sucks since "Mine" was one of the best songs on Beyonce's self-titled album (AND IT NEVER GOT RELEASED AS A SINGLE #justiceforMine). These two have good musical chemistry and they should collaborate again tbh.

More Random Game of Thrones Casting



-New Zealand actor Joe Naufahu has been cast in a multiple arc role. They won't say who he's playing, but it's probably a Dothraki or someone else in Essos.

-Melanie Liburd has also been spotted on set. Popular speculation guesses that she's playing a red priestess named Kinvara in the Essos storyline.



-And then thanks to a super fan who crawled around and captured footage of Tower of Joy filming, Eddie Eyre, Luke Roberts, and Robert Aramayo can be seen as young Ned, Arthur Dayne, and Howland Reed. Not very clearly, mind you. And it was filmed in portrait because people never learn.
