Billboard+ others praise Harry for shattering gender norms+environmental awareness with album cover



According to Billboard, Harry's cover challenges gender norms, noting that
- "the popular headline to describe the image was “topless,” usually a gendered term to connote an exposed cis woman’s chest" and that there's something "distinctly feminine" about his cover
- They point out that the image of him being in water is "almost uniquely femme" and that it's usually female pop stars pictured in water and that, "when men do so, it’s usually those with some gender-bending and/or queer qualities (think George Michael)"
- Harry has "always had femme-like qualities" and the water being a pink blush color just enhances that.
They point out the color of the water also plays into the environmental connection
- Historically, pink water is a type of water found only in "toxic environments" its color being "discharged in situations of demilitarization"
- They point out Harry is in a upcoming World War 2 film and that "bathing in what could be considered war waste gives off a distinct message" especially when it fits with his debut single “Sign of the Times” which "feels like a song about the end of the world"


- the aesthetic Harry went for is "stereotypically—feminine" sending "soft, delicate vibes" instead of a "strong masculinity" feel.
- he's "shattering gender norms" by "showing men can be just as delicate and soft as women"
- his pink cover is proving that men can "be more “feminine”, too, and it’s perfectly okay"
The article also points out that Harry has broken gender norms often before, like when he went to the Another Man magazine launch party wearing nail polish, has had his long hair, and has written gender neutral songs and interview answers.

Shamir drops a new album: Hope



I was gonna quit music this weekend. From day 1 it was clear i was an accidental pop star. I loved the idea of it, i mean who doesn't? Still the wear of staying polished with how im presented and how my music was presented took a huge toll on me mentally.

I started to hate music, the thing i loved the most! When i would listen to immaculate recordings with my friends their praise over the quality of the art as opposed to the art itself made me feel really sad for music as a medium in general.

My music only feels exciting for me if its in the moment, and thats what this album is. I made this album this past weekend stuck in my room with just a 4 track feeling hopeless about my love for music. Im not gonna lie, this album is hard to listen to, but it was even harder for me to share. I love pop music, i love outsider music, and i love lofi music, this is my way of combining all 3.

Anyway I played, wrote, produced, and mixed everything and big thanks to Kieran Ferris for Mastering an album with an hours notice! its free! Enjoy! Love Yall! Still more 2 come!!!!!!!


Tracklist:

  1. Hope

  2. What Else

  3. Ignore Everything

  4. Tom Kelly

  5. Easier

  6. Like A Bird

  7. One More Time Won't Kill You

  8. I Fucking Hate You

  9. Rain (Blake Babies Cover)

  10. Bleed It Out

The White Princess 1x02 Promo + EP defends changing a scene from the book.






Source 1 2

[OP note about the so-called scene change]Not sure how that scene doesn't read as rape on-screen when Henry doesn't give Lizzie a choice. Just because she gives into the situation he has forced her in doesn't mean its consent. She hates him, cries through it and then mocks him after. That doesn't make it less of a rape scene nor does Lizzie telling her mother she wasn't raped make what happened consent. This producer is full of shit.

Jessica Chastain talks equal pay


  • Is annoyed because the big agencies know how much the male stars are getting offered so they should negotiate equal deals for their female clients

  • Instead of negotiating based on what they offer her, she now asks how much they are paying the male actors and negotiates on that salary

  • In the past says producers would offer her a role, but then not negotiate salary until they had found male actors and negotiated with them so she would end up getting the scraps of whatever they had left in their budget. Now will only sign on if they include a clause that male actors can't get paid more than her.

  • Recently turned down a big studio movie because the male lead was getting a lot more. At first had doubts about what she did but realized that it's better in the long run because people will know not to offer her less money than the actor is getting

Hollywood Is Losing the Battle Against Online Trolls




  • The latest movie to get the Ghostbuster treatment from online trolls is Oscar Isaac's Armenian genocide film The Promise

  • Trolls flooded IMDB with 100,000 1 star reviews for the film despite only premiering to a 900 seat theater for critics. Giving the film a 1.8 rating

  • One message board user is quoted as saying "Guys, Hollywood is filming a big movie about the so-called Armenian genocide and the trailer has already been watched 700k times. We need to do something urgently."

  • There have been many online campaigns to manipulate IMDB's ratings against projects such as Rogue One, holocaust denier film Denial and netflix's Dear White People.

  • Netflix recently changed its voting system after alt-right trolls gave Amy Schumer's new comedy special hundreds of 1 star reviews.

  • "So what's the best way to fight off an army of trolls? The only way may be to raise an army of your own.." 35,000 supporters of The Promise have helped upvote the movie using 10 star reviews to counter the bad reviews. The movie currently has a 5.0 average.

Freida Pinto shows her passionate side and causes a stir in Showtime's 'Guerrilla'



about Jas Mistra, her character in Guerrilla
Pinto :
“I’ve never been able to play somebody like this — I’ve never been given the chance, This is the kind of role that actors live for, You can play characters that are good but don’t always show your range. I’ve always known that if you give me the chance, I’ll show you what I can do. I am so blessed that John saw in me the passion and the drive I have.”

“I connect with her, I felt protected by her, Jas has her passion in the right place, as well as this hunger to put everything that is within her out in the world. But she lacks strategy and direction. I come from a very authentic, but not harmful place, but I am also driven by extreme passion.”

All the dances can be viewed here

I'm not sure how I feel about people finding out they're in jeopardy before they dance. Why didn't they let 4 people dance, then announce the results for that group? Seems like that has the potential to get in people's heads and screw them up.

Charlie Hunnam recalls "terrible, painful, expensive" three-year marriage to actress Katharine Towne



source

at 18 Charlie married Katharine Towne. The marriage lasted three years.

“First time I was ever in Vegas I got married, which didn’t turn out that well. I had known the girl for three weeks. We had fallen madly in love and it was the first time I had ever been in love.”

“We thought, ‘What if we never see each other again? Let’s get married and then we’ll have to see each other again even if it’s just to get divorced. So we came to Vegas, but I couldn’t even get a drink so I actually didn’t think I would be able to get married.”

“Three terrible years. Three terrible, painful, expensive years. I got the cats at the end of it, so that was good. There was a small victory.”
