Online piracy group confirms they leaked screeners for upcoming Oscars hopefuls





Online piracy group Hive-CM8 confirmed they leaked screeners for Oscar hopefuls ‘Lady Bird,’ ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ ‘I, Tonya’ and “Last Flag Flying,” noting this as their reason:

“We are especially sharing this for the people who cant [sic] visit the cinema due to illness, or because it is a limited release that doesn’t make it to their country. Don’t forget watching a Screener is not like the real thing, you should still all go to the cinema and support the Producers.”

They also confirmed leaking a screener for Louis CK's scrapped pile of shit movie “I Love You, Daddy.”

Israel Ambassador Requests Meeting With Lorde After Show Cancellation




After Lorde cancelled her upcoming Tel Aviv concert in response to the requests of activists Israel's ambassador to New Zealand is requesting to meet with her.

He wrote an open letter on Facebook saying: "Your concert in Israel could have spread the message that solutions come from constructive engagement that leads to compromise and cooperation. Music should unite not divide and your performance in Israel could have contributed to the spirit of hope and peace in the Middle East." He hopes if they meet they can discuss "Israel, its achievements and its role as the only democracy in the Middle East."

Bono thinks Music Has Become a Little Too ‘Girly’




He thinks that one too many women have infiltrated the modern radio waves with their singing and general instrument playing. And he's not having it!

“I think music has gotten very girly. And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment — and that’s not good,” he is quoted.

“When I was 16, I had a lot of anger in me. You need to find a place for it and for guitars, whether it is with a drum machine — I don’t care. The moment something becomes preserved, it is fucking over,” he continued. “You might as well put it in formaldehyde.”

ONTD Original: The Theory That Being a Child Star Stunts Mature Growth ft. Selena Gomez

Throughout the beginning of her career (which happened to be during a very defining time in her life), Selena Gomez was praised by Disney big shots for her talent and transparency that fans fell in love with.

Wizards of Waverly Place, as well as a lot of her straight-to-DVD Disney films, gave the Disney Channel some of their most well-received pieces of work at the time. Which isn't saying much, but what did she know at 14/15 years old? She was praised for her impressive comedic timing on a multi-camera set, her good work ethic, and having a charm that clicked into what parents trusted and what kids wanted to see.



But when it was time for her to grow up, none of that applied anymore. The things that made her great at Disney were suddenly irrelevant as an adult star, and she saw a rapid shift.

Rachael Ray Criticized for Aiding Israel’s Cultural Appropriation



Celebrity chef Rachael Ray caught heat for her “Israeli nite” spread featuring levant foods that existed centuries before the creation of the settler-colonial state known as Israel in 1948. Whether Ray posted out of ignorance or with purpose, she further demonstrates the western media’s complicity in Israel’s campaign of erasing Palestinians and their culture since taking over Palestine and subjecting Palestinians to living in a state of apartheid.

Responses have been snarky to educational; Ray inspired people to share their own “Israeli nite” spreads of pizza, sushi, ramen, biryani, samosas, egg rolls and tacos, and to re-enact of the creation of hummus. People also came to her defense to dismiss the criticism altogether. Writer Yousef Munayyer provided more historical context.

LOONA officially submits to international fans with their lesbian love story in Heart Attack by Chuu



Per the description: The new single lets the fans take a peek into what JiWoo, who has already been a popular trainee among fans, had to go through to become ‘Chuu’, and her desire to be loved by Yves, who also has said in her lyrics, “my heart that wants to be like you gets colored, filled with you.” The titled track “Heart Attack” does not interpret the feelings of being in love in a serious way, but with Chuu’s own adorable emoticon-like ways. The music video has references to historical and fictional figures such as the artist Rene Magritte, Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Little Match Girl”, and John Appleby’s novel “Aphrodite Means Death”.

My first and probably last post but I'm screaming in my room rn!!! This is so cute and the song is a bop. When I saw the teaser I saw people saying stuff like "sisterly admiration" and I was confused bc I definitely got romantic vibes from it. I'm glad they confirm it in the description and the MV is very clear too. I just wish that the song lyrics also used female nouns/pronouns like the love songs usually do. There are eng subs on the video too! Sorry if any of this is formatted wrong, mods.
