pleasantly surprised to see elbow's still out here gettin' it. disappointed teyana didn't do more with that classic sample which i'd bet someone's first born on was only cleared because christian is puffy's son.

apparently i'm feeling very angsty because most of what i picked is very dark and crunchy this week so i included mabel's, neneh cherry's daughter's, debut album as a mood cleanser, but i think it's dramatic, angsty pop so...

ontd, what new music are you listening to this week? are you feeling as angsty as i apparently am? wanna wear dark colors and shit talk the world together...?

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck to star in erotic thriller Deep Water

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck are in talks to star in an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel Deep Water.

It will be directed by Adrian Lyne who last directed Unfaithful

The movie is an erotic thriller, right in the wheelhouse Lyne established with such blockbusters Indecent Proposal, Fatal Attraction, and 9 1/2 Weeks.

Affleck and de Armas are in talks to play Vic and Melinda Van Allen, an attractive young married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface facade of American suburban life.


Taylor Swift Promotes Lover™ on Amazon Boxes + New "#Taylor Liked" Tumblr Posts

Fresh off encouraging her Swifties to sign up for Amazon Prime during an employee strike, Taylor continues to working with the company to promote her upcoming album Lover™. Now when employees are on the verge of pissing their pants because taking a break could mean getting fired, the boxes they are franticly stuffing will feature the face of capitalist sweetheart, Taylor Swift!! According to a post on reddit, this is the first ever "on box" advertising campaign, but that is not true (The animated motion picture Minions did it first!) How are Swifties reacting? Exactly the way Amazon and Swift intended they would:

Billie Eilish covers Rolling Stone

  • On touring:

  • She has a love-hate relationship with touring. Her entire family is also on the road with her, and she hates being away from her friends for so long. So much so, that she splurged and chartered a 'friends bus', claims it helps her to cope with the anxiety that comes with touring. Some of her friends come and hang out with her for weeks.

    Her first tour was two years ago: with six people in a van — Eilish, her parents and brother, Marquis, and a merch person. Their hotel budget was $100 a night; Eilish and the family usually shared a single room, and frequently one bed. She recalls it as miserable.

    However, cool things do happen to her on tour - Dave Grohl, Billie Joe Armstrong, Thom Yorke have all visited her backstage, where Thom Yorke said she was the only person who's doing anything fucking interesting at the moment.

  • On mental health and depression:

  • Early on as a child, she was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, which manifests itself in certain ticks, but she's usually able to suppress them. She also experiences synesthesia, a neurosensory wire-crossing in which senses seem to blend together. She says every person has their own color and shape and number in her head. Her brother is an orange triangle, although the name “Finneas” is dark green. Her song “Bad Guy” “is yellow, but also red, and the number seven,”. “It’s not hot, but warm, like an oven. And it smells like cookies.”

    She recalls the years 13-16 being extremely tough, even though that's essentially where her career picked off with Ocean Eyes. She joined a competitive dance company at the age of 12, where she recalls being very insecure and developing body dysmorphia.

    Then she injured her hip which led to her quitting dancing - where her depression also started. She says she used to self harm because she thought she deserved to be in pain, but she's doing a lot better now, and hasn't felt depressed lately. She also says she went to therapy and keeps telling her fans to be nice to themselves.

    Was a nice interview, albeit a bit too forced at times. Are you buying into her ONTD ?

Lil' Kim fans are mad at Kamala Harris for doing an interview about Lil' Kim's 2005 perjury case

Last week, a few Swifties were feuding with Kamala Harris because of her attendance at a Scooter Braun fundraiser but her troubles with fans of women in music may not be over.

Lil Kim fans discovered Kamala's appearance in Lil Kim's 2006 reality show "Lil' Kim: Countdown to Lockdown" about the last few days before she went to federal prison for perjury.

Kamala was the San Francisco DA at the time and she had this to say about Lil' Kim:
“It is much more serious than what is the code among friends around the street. What I would like to see is, in the way that we’re handling cases like those of Lil’ Kim, we say as a community that we’re not going to glorify the gangster.”

The View: Bill de Blasio, Hot Topics, End of S22

Today’s panel is Joy, Ana, Sunny, and Meghan

Bill de Blasio Talks His Campaign

First two clips are only Bill de Blasio, third clip his wife joins.

Summary of his convo [Spoiler (click to open)]
Joy wonders why Bill de Blasio (BdB) attacked Uncle Joe instead of Benedict Donald. BdB explains himself*. Talks about the status quo isn’t working. Dems need to be able to show, and be blunt about, the money is often in the wrong hands. Sunny talks about BdB accomplishments, but quotes his mediocre approval, wonders why it isn’t higher. BdB talks about this and that. Joy talks about how diverse NYC is, and thinks it’s run beautifully. BdB elaborates, talks more about his accomplishments, making NYC safer.

Mam said he was criticized for campaigning in Iowa during blackout. BdB explains he was already in IA before the blackout, the blackout hadn’t happened in 13 yrs, no anticipation a blackout would happen, explains how phone calls work. (Lol). Ana asks about Cuba (honeymoon), Nicaragua, Venezuela, asks about socialist claims. BdB said he went there on his honeymoon because it’s a beautiful country, explains his position, separates what he thinks about how their governments are run. Says Tr/mp will spout socialism no matter what he or other candidates say or do, it’s Tr/mp’s opposition mantra. Mam comes back to her blackout topic [which was dumb?] and already resolved. BdB asks, Was the situation handled, yes-no.

Wife Chirlane McCray joins him, they just celebrated 25 years anniversary, shows wedding photo. Sunny asks how she handles the remarks, criticism. Chirlane thinks people need to get to know him, she says nice wife-y things about her husband. Ana wondered how long she made him chase her. He said love at first sight for him, but it wasn’t for her. They talk lovey courtship, hold hands. Mam wonders how it is for her, that it's harder to be spouse of politician than the politician sometimes. Chirlane says constructive criticism is helpful, but you tune out the rest of the noise. Joy reminds BdB said Tr/mp wasn’t welcome back in NYC. How’s he going to keep him out?!

She is advocating for UN motion to create a "Global Ocean Treaty" and create a massive network of Ocean Sanctuaries.

"There were no reported injuries, and no offenses disclosed. The passengers concerned then proceeded with their journeys.”

Samantha Morton: 'no regrets' at working with Woody Allen


Back in 1999, Morton starred in Allen's film "Sweet and Lowdown", an experience for which she remains "forever grateful" and for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Morton said that “I was working for a director who was kind, funny, and wonderful to work with. It changed my life."

Morton herself is a survivor of sexual abuse which she experienced while in residential care.


Facing Extradition, Roman Polanski Will Skype Into Venice Film Festival Premiere

Roman Polanski’s 'An Officer and a Spy' is heading to the Venice Film Festival.
There’s little chance he will hit the red carpet in support.
The United States and Italy signed an extradition treaty in 1983.
Polanski, who was convicted of statutory rape in 1978, would be arrested and likely sent back to the U.S. if he steps foot on Italian soil.

The Venice fest is a case of déjà vu for Polanski.
In 2009, Swiss officials arrested him at the behest of U.S. authorities while Polanski was in the country to attend the Zurich Film Festival.
That move sparked an outcry, Weinstein spearheaded a petition signed by everyone.

It is unlikely that such petition would surface in the post-#MeToo era.


Pink dyes 8-year-old daughter’s hair in support of Jessica Simpson

Pink is showing her support for Jessica Simpson after she was mom-shamed for dyeing her daughter’s hair.
Simpson posted a photo of her daughter Maxwell, 7, after a trip to the salon.
In the photo, the ends of Maxwell’s hair were dyed different shades of purple.
Fans took to the comments section to share their unsolicited opinions over Maxwell’s new hairdo.
In response to the backlash, Pink posted a picture of herself dyeing her 8-year-old daughter’s hair blue.

“I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven-year-old get her hair colored. So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday.”#bluehairdontcare #getyourownkids
In addition to turning comments off on the post.
