The Washington Post's handy reference guide for Ariana's "Thank U, Next"; reporters feud over video

The video is really well put together: if you haven't seen all the films the music video references, it's a quick and direct way to catch up. Who knew that WaPo is as good at reporting on pop culture as they are at unearthing the latest malfeasance of the world's despotic regimes? Of course, whatever they do report on, we can't actually post here, as the newspaper is a banned source. But their social media posts aren't! So here goes:

And speaking of the intersection of journalism and pop culture, CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was aghast that had Ari's new video as a headline for a while when it first dropped:

Buzzfeednews reporter Ellie Hall clapped back with the greatest of ease:

Another Buzzfeed reporter has a pretty reasonable explanation:

Sources: WaPo video, Oliver's tweet, Ellie's tweet, Alp's tweet
When I'm on the move, I periodically glance at Buzzfeednews to make sure the world hasn't ended yet (I find Buzzfeednews' headlines less clickbaity than those on CNN and other sources. Really!). So that's how I learned the vid had dropped (it's important news to me, OK). So thank u, Buzzfeed!

The Bad Sex in Fiction Nominees Are Here!

Each year since 1993, the Bad Sex in Fiction Award has honoured an author who has produced an outstandingly bad scene of sexual description in an otherwise good novel.

Here are some excerpts from this year's nominees:

Scoundrels: The Hunt for Hansclapp (Major Victor Cornwall and Major Arthur St John Trevelyan)

“Empty my tanks,” I’d begged breathlessly, as once more she began drawing me deep inside her pleasure cave. Her vaginal ratchet moved in concertina-like waves, slowly chugging my organ as a boa constrictor swallows its prey. Soon I was locked in, balls deep, ready to be ground down by the enamelled pepper mill within her.

Rick Ross uses homophobic slur while dissing Tekashi 6ix9ine on Meek Mill's new song with Jay-Z

On Meek Mill's new song "What's Free" with Rick Ross and Jay-Z, Rick Ross takes aim at Tekashi 6ix9ine with a homophobic slur.

Meek Mill previously defended Rick Ross when he received criticism in 2013 for lyrics referencing rape:
"Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it
I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it.”

At the time Meek said: "I don't even care about nobody criticizing no lyrics. People rap about killing stuff all day. Biggie said, 'Rape your kid, throw her over the bridge' back then, it was nothing, it was just hip-hop. Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites voicing their opinion about something anybody say,"

The Real discuss social media influencer and model Emma Hallberg for blackfishing on Instagram

The Real panel discuss the recent controversy of social media influencer & Instagram model Emma Hallberg who has been accused of “blackfishing” in order to gain followers and endorsements. Some may ask, what does that exactly mean? A quick online search summarized it like this, “The general point of blackfishing is for a female of European descent to appear of African, Arab, or Hispanic ancestry.”

Hallberg responded to the online criticism saying, “I haven't done anything to make myself look darker. I get the tan naturally when I've been in the sun. I cannot change the way I was born because the things I've been accused of and the things people are mad about are things that are natural on me like my hair, my lips, my nose, my face. I've never claimed to be black or biracial or anything else than white,” said Hallberg to “Good Morning America.”

Garbage Day! Months Later Andy Serkis Chimes In On the ‘Rub and Tug’ Debate

I bet you remember that time when Scarlett Johansson was attached to star in the ‘Rub and Tug’ movie, portraying a real-life transgender massage parlor owner Dante "Tex" Gill. I mean she had no problems playing Asian characters on film, so of course this was a no-brainer for ScarJo. She's that versatile! Once the backlash hit, the proud Yummy Pop owner issued a ridiculous statement, basically telling the people who criticized her for wanting to play the role that “they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment”. Once the popcorn machine pop-pop-pop sound faded, she finally came to her senses and dropped out of the project. That was in July this year.

5 months later somebody still thinks Scarlett shouldn't have had to drop out of the ‘Rub and Tug’ movie. That somebody is a renowned performance capture actor and now a director of such films as ‘Breathe’ and ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’. Speaking to Variety Serkis while on the topic of Hollywood’s ongoing conversation about actors and representation, namely Scarlett Johansson’s involvement in ‘Rub and Tug’, had this to say about the backlash ScarJo received that eventually forced her to drop out of the project: “I absolutely disagree. I really, vehemently disagree". Wait for it... "Actors should be able to play anything, and that’s why I love this [performance capture] technology. What should be the point is that whatever color your skin is, whatever shape you are, whatever height you are, whatever your makeup is as an actor, you should have the ability to play anything”.

Ice-T and Mariska Hargitay talk bagels and SVU on Fallon

Ice-T doesn't understand why everyone cared he had never eaten a bagel, he's since eaten on (his opinion in the interview!). Mariska was scared to meet Ice-T originally because they told her he was "OG" and serious (and she didn't know what it meant). They're now bff and Ice-T will stay on SVU as long as Mariska stays.

Clip of Tame Impala's + Mark Ronson's 'Perfect Illusion' Demo Surfaces

Notably forgotten Gaga lead single "Perfect Illusion" was presented to Gaga by Kevin Parker as an initial Tame Impala track called "Illusion".

Unsure of the date and location, but a Tame Impala fan account recorded a clip of the demo at a live DJ set. It's very similar to the final released song with different filtered KP vocal effects and the lyrics 'it wasn't love, it must've been an illusion'.

Could this be better than the Joanne'd version?

i think i prefer this style over Gaga's dramatic singing tbh
