She continues, saying that frightening political climates always allow for good and authentic art to flourish.

Benjamin Millepede Claims He Left Paris Ballet Because of Racism

080612-nataile-portman-millepied-married-340


Benjamin Millepied, the former director of the Paris Opera Ballet and Kevin Federline husband of Natalie Portman, has a documentary coming out that follows his time at the Paris Opera Ballet. In "Reset", which comes out on January 13, he calls out the ballet world for its vicious racism. He also says that the POB has lost its reputation and quality. The documentary comes shortly after revelations that he abused expenses and funds at the POB. Some quotes:

“I heard someone say a black girl in a ballet is a distraction. If there are 25 white girls, everyone will look at the black girl. Everyone must be alike in a company, meaning everyone must be white...I have to shatter this racist idea.”

“This company, from the 1800s to the 1950s, was reputed for its phrasing, for the way the dancers moved. This is sorely missing from the school today.”

“I’ve realized that it’s too hard to turn this [organization] into what I think is most relevant for ballet today.”

    Lee Daniels takes on #OscarsSoWhite



    On the Academy's lack of diversity, Lee Daniels had this to say:
    “Go out and do the work. Oscars so white! So what? Do your work. Let your legacy speak and stop complaining, man. Are we really in this for the awards? If I had thought that way — that the world was against me — I wouldn’t be here now. These whiny people that think we’re owed something are incomprehensible and reprehensible to me. I don’t expect acknowledgment or acceptance from white America. I’m going to be me.”

    He also says he wants white people to feel cool and that him giving white characters swag or whatever will heal the country.

    ONTD Original: Top 10 Forgotten American Idol Auditions

    We all remember some of the other notoriously awful Idol-hopefuls (William Hung, Mary Roach, and Larry Platt aka, the "Pants on the Ground" man.
    But what about those who were just as awful, who did not gain as much publicity? Here is a lookback at more terrible American Idol auditions.
    (Note: even if some of these were obvious set-ups by producers, I will still include them, for the sake of laughs).

    1. Tashawn Moore

    american idol (Tashawn moore) by staco2
    Tashawn Moore came into the season 5 auditions in Minneapolis, singing none other than Minneapolis's own Prince. She butchered up the lyrics to "Kiss" quite brutally, and kept forgetting the lyrics and re-singing parts she already sang. (Sorry the video is in French, I couldn't find an English one. The singing is in English though, that's all that matters?)
