USA Show on Biggie & Tupac's Murders Won't Have Their Music But Will Draw Conclusions

Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. will span three timelines: 1993 when the two rappers were friends; 1997 as a detective investigates Biggie's death; and 2006 when the case is reopened by a new task force. Premiering Feb 27, it will star Wavyy Jonez, Marcc Rose, Jimmi Simpson, Josh Duhamel, Bokeem Woodbine, Letoya Luckett and others.

Woodbine, who got to work with Tupac, says this about the show: “The story of the assassinations of Tupac and Christopher Wallace are exemplary of something I’ve always said, which is that the truth is stranger than fiction. Their real life stories were allegorical and we can draw all types of wisdom from happened to these men in real life. We’re giving the audience a perspective of the investigation and the minutia of detail. There are all of these singular details that build up this case of these monolithic figures in music culture and black culture and American culture. We get an opportunity to examine what happened to them from an almost forensic perspective.”

And apparently, at the end of its 10 episodes, the show will point in certain directions.

There’s very little ambiguity after the culmination of all 10 episodes. We’re being transparent out of respect to those that have passed and those that live with the pain of those that have passed. Sometimes transparency draws conclusions.”

Emma Watson addresses her white feminism

In promoting the book "Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race" by Reni Eddo-Lodge for the first month of her book club, Our Shared Shelf, Emma Watson took to GoodReads to talk about criticisms of her white feminism:

Dear OSS,

There is so much racism, both in our past and present, that is not acknowledged and accounted for. I know this to be the case from my own education, and I know there is so much more for me to learn. This is why I’m excited to announce that our first book of 2018 is Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge which talks about the history of racism in Britain, and ways we can see, acknowledge and challenge racism. I am not supposed to have favourites, however this was the most important book for me this year.

When I gave my UN speech in 2015, so much of what I said was about the idea that “being a feminist is simple!” Easy! No problem! I have since learned that being a feminist is more than a single choice or decision. It’s an interrogation of self. Every time I think I’ve peeled all the layers, there’s another layer to peel. But, I also understand that the most difficult journeys are often the most worthwhile. And that this process cannot be done at anyone else’s pace or speed.

When I heard myself being called a “white feminist” I didn’t understand (I suppose I proved their case in point). What was the need to define me — or anyone else for that matter — as a feminist by race? What did this mean? Was I being called racist? Was the feminist movement more fractured than I had understood? I began...panicking.

It would have been more useful to spend the time asking myself questions like: What are the ways I have benefited from being white? In what ways do I support and uphold a system that is structurally racist? How do my race, class and gender affect my perspective? There seemed to be many types of feminists and feminism. But instead of seeing these differences as divisive, I could have asked whether defining them was actually empowering and bringing about better understanding. But I didn’t know to ask these questions.

Colbert Asks James Franco To Respond To Sexual Misconduct Allegations

James Franco is asked about criticism for wearing a "Time's Up" pin while he has recently come under fire for sexual misconduct by actresses via Twitter.

Although he claims he did not read the Tweets, yet he's willing to listen, learn and change his perspective.

This echoes his 2014 interview on Live With Kelly & Michael. He responded to allegations he attempted to hook up with a 17 year old girl by saying he learned his lesson.

Todrick Hall can't stop gushing about Taylor Swift

Todrick Hall recently opened up about his friend Taylor Swift:

  • He says, “I spent New Year’s with her. I was there for New Year’s Eve, I was opening the Rose Bowl Parade and so I was there, I stayed until midnight and then I went to a 2 a.m. call time.”

  • “I’ve already told her that she’s probably going to have to put a like, ‘Do not let this crazy man enter the arena’-type sign outside of the theater because I’m going to go to probably 20 of the concerts."

  • Taylor helps inspire him through tough times.

  • "She’s a smart businesswoman, but she’s also a great human. The way she treats all of her staff members, her employees, her friends … On days when I don’t feel like doing the stage door I’m like, ‘What would Taylor do?'”

  • He tells AOL, "She just always outdoes herself. One day she said to me, ‘I follow every zig with a zag. I don’t try to necessarily outdo myself -- I just try to do something slightly different.’ When she says things like that to me, I try to apply those things to my own life. […] I think for a lot of artists that’s hard for them to do, but Taylor hits the nail on the head every time."

A month ago, he said Taylor looked like Quasimodo with one of her exes and he also mentioned her recent backlash.

Why Isn't SONY doing more to promote PROUD MARY?

  • It's not screening for critics (Oh boy), and critics attending the press junket weren't allowed to see it either (??)

  • The article reiterates how Hollywood never learns it's lesson - that black-led films do make money, including Henson's own Hidden Figures in 2016.

  • Henson herself is also annoyed with the lack of marketing; Meanwhile, you go overseas and what do you see? People trying to look like African-Americans with Afros and dressing in hip-hop fashions. To say that black culture doesn’t sell well overseas, that’s a lie. Somebody just doesn’t want to do their job and promote the film overseas.

  • The author talks about how he accidentally stumbled across a non-advertised Facebook Live with Taraji that seemed half-assed.


PROUD MARY opens January 12th (This friday). 

Youtube's Open Letter Regarding Logan Paul's Disgusting Vlog

Collapse )

A little over a week ago, one of the obnoxious biggest Youtubers posted a video of him and his friends exploring a forest in Japan known as "Suicide Forest." He stumbled upon a dead body and proceeded to film, laugh, edit, and post the video.

Since then, he has received major criticism (as he should) for his video by a number of Youtubers and celebrities. He issued one piss poor twitter note "apology" with excuses and not one mention of the victim. A day later, he posted another "apology" because the first one didn't quite cut it for a majority of the public. During all of this, Youtube has been silent-- until now. It's also important to note that the video was trending on Youtube for over 24 hours until it was finally removed.

Do you think taking over a week to address an obviously disturbing video that violates human company guidelines is too late, ONTD? Do you think they will actual do anything or are they just trying to save face?

Rachel Dolezal is protesting the racist H&M hoodie by selling her own racist hoodie

Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who pretended to be black, is protesting H&M's "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle" hoodie by selling a hoodie that's just as racist. Hers says "Coolest Prince in the Hood."

She claims that the "hood" part was supposed to be a play-on word for "hoodie." Still a dumbass.

Original post:

Her latest post:
So, I did a first design in response to H&M's "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle" shirt that said "Coolest Prince in the Hood," because it's a hooded sweatshirt/neighborhood, etc. Some people liked it, some didn't like the word "hood." I called production and asked them to change it to "Coolest Prince in the World." So, if you want one of the updated ones, go to the link in the bio.
