What is 4:44?



  • This week, ads that simply said "4:44" appeared all over NYC, and in California, London, Chicago, New Zealand and online.

  • Fans peeked the source code and discovered the ads were associated with Tidal. Because of their love of the number 4, many speculated that it was promo for a new Jay-Z album, his much-rumoured response to Lemonade, a Jay-Z/Beyoncé collab album, or just a grand announcement of the Knowles-Carter twins' births.

  • During tonight's NBA finals game, the above commercial aired, announcing that 4:44 is a project from Tidal starring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong'o and Danny Glover.

  • It's most likely a film (due to the NC-17 rating displayed in the ad). It's not confirmed to be associated with new Jay-Z music (...yet). The release date is also unknown.

First Reviews of "Witness:" Mixed to Strong, Not Very Political, All Over The Place

katy_perry_witness

The first reviews for Witness are trickling in, and initial responses are mixed to strong. Reviwers say that the album has a darker mood than the previous albums. There are a few tracks that focus on "purposeful pop," while the others are about breakups, intimacy, and the digital age.

USA Today:

"Despite everything its lead singles and marketing campaign led listeners to expect, Witness is neither Perry's political manifesto, nor an album of embarrassing hip hop appropriation. The album Perry actually released is sonically coherent and entirely uncontroversial, its decent songwriting mostly focused on her wounded heart. Arguably, it's one of her most personal records to date, and yet the marketing focused on everything but."
SOURCE

LA Times:

"Now comes the full album, titled “Witness,” and it’s more jumbled still, with would-be self-empowerment anthems next to earnest ballads lamenting the end of a relationship."

"Witness contains strong moments beyond “Chained to the Rhythm,” which still feels like the beginning of an intriguing project... [but] Witness, whose singles keep stalling out like Trump’s travel ban, diagnoses only Perry’s desperation for a hit."
SOURCE

Mashable:

"Feeling like the world is slipping out of your fingers is ripe for material, but more of than than not, it comes off as robotic. She's chained to her own rhythm."

"Teenage Dream's monster success followed by "Part of Me" set her up to ground her cotton candy cloud persona, but finding her footing since then has been a challenge. Prism was a decent effort that didn't quite have the same luster, but Witness feels more like a spiral."
"There are bright spots on Witness, though."

The Chainsmokers say Lady Gaga beef taught them a 'lesson'




Grammy winning duo The Chainsmokers are not only topping the charts, they are also trying to stay on top of their attitudes as well. The duo, who's recent album Memories...Do Not Open is one of 2017's best selling albums. Recently the edm hacks found themselves in a bit of heat. It all started when they stated cold hard facts saying that Lady Gaga's song Perfect Illusion fucking sucked, which it did. “We’ve since reached out to her and explained, because it was really taken out of context. We were talking about how much we respect her as an artist and everything she’s done but that I’m just not a fan of her new song. Of course it came out just so much worse.”, said one of the Chainsmokers idk which one. “I felt bad. I don’t think it’s cool to make those sort of judgments anyway. Keep it to yourself,” one of them added.

Gags should consider working with them since her Amy Grant inspired Christian song "The Cure", didn't cure anything.

Russian hackers are using Britney Spears' Instagram account to hack Western governments



Security researchers found out that Russian hackers are using Britney Spears’s Instagram account to hack foreign governments.

The Moscow-linked hacking group are exploiting the comment section of Britney's account to test new malware to target Western governments.

The hackers are using Britney's account because of the high traffic her posts receive, making it easier for the hackers to hide their nefarious actions.

Jerry Seinfeld On The Swerve Heard Around The World




Jerry Seinfeld refused to hug Kesha at an event so he went on Extra to clarify the whole situation. “When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality. In my reality, I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say ‘Hello’, I got to start somewhere. A hug is not the first moment of two humans. I never did that… all these little social things are tricky.” Jerry also confirmed that he didn’t know who Kesha was.

Is Racism to Blame for The Bachelorette Losing a Million Viewers?


This season of the Bachelorette is notable because it is the first season with a black lead. Three weeks into the season, Rachel has been extremely compelling and her season has had quite a bit of drama already. Still, the ratings are way down from last season and Rachel's first three episodes have had over a million fewer viewers than Jojo's first three episodes. For context, Jojo's season's viewership was almost identical to the season before hers.

This season will almost certainly end up being the least-watched iteration of the Bachelorette by far.

Katy Perry : What Taylor did to me ..that's so messed up


Katy opened up again about the Taylor Swift feud citing James Corden as the reason she finally addressed it saying : "well, James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe, No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth..I mean, I'm not Buddha—things irritate me,I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans]. That's so messed up!"

Bizarre Details About Glennon Doyle, Christian Mommy Blogger

glennonabby



Elle magazine profiled Glennon Doyle Melton, the Christian mommy blogger who divorced her husband to marry Abby Wambach, the women's soccer star. In 2015 she wrote a bestselling memoir about saving her marriage after her husband cheated on her. Then she divorced him for Abby Wambach.

*Her sexual orientation:

For the record, she describes herself as “gay for the purposes of activism,” but insists that her true orientation defies classification: “My sexuality is Abby,” she tells me.

“[Abby and I] wake up in the morning, and we literally say to each other: ‘Coffee and revolution.’”

*She's friends with Oprah:

“My new friend’s name is Oprah.”

“I address my e-mails to her, ‘Dear God’s Girl’ and I sign them: ‘Love, God’s Girl.’

*Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love, thinks she's the next Gloria Steinem.

Lena Dunham shills for organic cotton tampons while talking about getting her first period


source
[storytime]When I got my period I was 14 and still totally boobless, sure that it would arrive when I was approximately 24. I've told this story before but it just makes me laugh too hard: it was late August and I was hiking at sunset with my father when I felt something trickling down my leg. My first reaction was, naturally, that I had peed myself a whole bunch. When I realized it was blood I shrieked wildly- my first suspicion is always fatal injury- as my father looked at me, misty-eyed. "This, this mountain, is where we were the moment you became a woman. In many cultures you'd have to start birthing children now." I was like "can we please get home right fucking now and off this mountain?" We booked it home--never moved that fast before or since--and he handed me a tampon that was older than I was (my mom was already menopausal at this point) and tried to explain it to me through a crack in the door. "Up and...back?" I wept and shrieked and called all of my aunts AND my friend Harris's mom on the cordless phone #lolamoments 🌺 I love being a #lolainvestor because they're helping make the tampon dialogue more open than it was 16 years ago. I also love that @lola has our backs for all our firsts, whether it's your period, childbirth or some grand formal occasion where you're bleeding unjustly. Let's do this right.
