Jussie Smollett Performs For The First Time Since Assault: 'I Couldn't Let Those Motherf***ers Win'



Jussie Smollettt took the stage for his planned show at L.A.'s famed Troubadour club on Saturday night, and before he began singing to the packed crowd of 400, he spoke generally about the racist and homophobic attack he suffered in the early hours of last Tuesday morning in Chicago. Video at source.

Tearing up and repeatedly overcome with emotion as he tried to speak, Smollett was encouraged by the supportive crowd ('Take your time, baby!') as he said:

"I have so many words on my heart that I want to say. The most important thing that I can say is [inaudible] 'thank you so much and I'm OK'. I forget, I want to say so much. I'm not fully healed yet, but I'm going to [be], and I'm gonna stand strong with y'all.

It sounds - I had to be here tonight, it sounds proud, but I couldn't let those motherf***ers win.
So I will always stand for love. I will never stand for anything other than that. Regardless of what anyone else says, I will always stand for love and I hope that you all stand with me."

Kygo being accused of copying Avicii's video



Kygo recently released a new video "Happy Now". The video is eerily similar to Avicii's video "Feeling Good".
Both include:
-Kygo/Avicii hanging out with parents/family
-Norwegian/Swedish nature
-Kygo/Avicii playing piano
-Lots of scenes with cars, Kygo's feels like a car commercial, Avicii's was a commercial for Volvo.

Will this blatant idea stealing start a war between Norway and Sweden, will Norway not vote for Sweden in the upcoming EuroVision?

Update: Demi Deactivates!!! Demi Thinks 21 Savage Jokes Are Funny, Twitter Makes Drug Jokes



Update: DEMI HAS DEACTIVATED HER TWITTER ACCOUNT!

Demi Lovato made a brief appearance to Twitter to say she thinks the 21 savage jokes have kept her entertained during the Superbowl after he was arrested by ICE for overstaying his visa (he's British??????). Twitter quickly started saying that deportation jokes were not funny and started making a bunch of drug jokes, calling her a meth head, etc. Demi didn't think it was funny (because it's not) and decided to explain herself by saying she didn't think the deportation jokes were funny.

In conclusion, OP has decided that she agrees with Demi on that she should delete social media and she should take Ari-chan with her.

Update: I got my wish, I don't think this is how I wanted it to happen though :(

ONTD Original: The Tomfoolishness of Flop Film "Where Hands Touch"



Just when your Black History Month celebration begins, OP swings in on a chandelier drops her pants and craps on it. Swirl historian Amma Asante has been ripped to shreds about her latest filmé, Where Hands Touch. It got released in late 2018 but well, it floppedT. Asante was subject to hours and hours of beclownment and well when you try to forge a love story between a black girl and a Hitler youth, you deserve to be cussed out by Black Twitter and Spike Lee forever and ever, amen. This movie is chock full of lightskint clownery and weird fetishist foolery, but here are the most WTF moments of Where Hands Touch staring Amandla Stenberg and George McKay. Check out the trailer above or don’t just read this instead. Or don’t read it. There are some spoilers but come on none of y'all was seeing this after its social media dragging so why even bother with the tags? OP has laid it on the line to bring you this.

Billie Holiday probably wants to throw hands in the afterlife at Amma AsanteCollapse )

Too long, won't ever read: Amma Asante's obsession with the swirl has gone too far and we are given a horrible, twisted after school special movie with a flat, dimensionless mess of a story chockfull of foolery, clownery and just dustiness galore.
