New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


More Myself: A Journey

As one of the most celebrated musicians in the world, Alicia Keys has enraptured the globe with her heartfelt lyrics, extraordinary vocal range, and soul-stirring piano compositions. Yet away from the spotlight, Alicia has grappled with private heartache—over the challenging and complex relationship with her father, the people-pleasing nature that characterized her early career, the loss of privacy surrounding her romantic relationships, and the oppressive expectations of female perfection.

Since Alicia rose to fame, her public persona has belied a deep personal truth: she has spent years not fully recognizing or honoring her own worth. After withholding parts of herself for so long, she is at last exploring the questions that live at the heart of her story: Who am I, really? And once I discover that truth, how can I become brave enough to embrace it?

More Myself is part autobiography, part narrative documentary. Alicia’s journey is revealed not only through her own candid recounting, but also through vivid recollections from those who have walked alongside her. The result is a 360-degree perspective on Alicia’s path, from her girlhood in Hell’s Kitchen and Harlem to the process of growth and self-discovery that we all must navigate.

Coronavirus challenge TikTok toilet licker threatens to cough on Dr. Phil



"I was, like, really annoyed that corona was getting more publicity than me," toilet licker said. "One, I had way dirtier things in my mouth. Two, I bleached [the toilet.] Three, private plane. I flew down on my sugar daddy's plane with my best friend. So really, it wasn't that dirty. I wasn't putting myself or anyone else at risk."

Tik Tok Toilet Licker Ava Louise, the self-described "skinny legend" made headlines when she licked a toilet seat last week.

"If you infect one person that loses their life, is it worth it for you to have this attention?" Dr. Phil asked. "Yeah," toilet licker replied.

When Dr. Phil asked the toilet licker if she's concerned about putting people at risk by going outside and perpetuating the spread of the virus, toilet licker suggested the entire pandemic is a hoax and said she "wouldn't be surprised" if Dr. Phil is "a part of the Illuminati."

"I just don't think that this is as concerning as possibly as it could be, because I don't have coronavirus," toilet licker explained. "I don't have any symptoms. No one I know has symptoms."

Blair Underwood Initially Passed On 'Sex And The City'


Blair Underwood was On Netflix's Strong Black Lead podcast, and he talks about being approached by the producers of SATC. He was offered a role as a Black record exec whose sister who didn't want him dating white women. He says, "I said no first...there was an episode where...Kim Cattrell's character [Samantha] wanted to be with a Black man and it was all about curiosity," he said.  And I said, 'Thank you, but no thank you. I appreciate it and I'm honored.' And I mean that, I don't take that lightly when people offer you a job. But I said, 'I'm not interested in being the Black curiosity, but thank you.'"

The producers came back two years later to offer him the role he would eventually take, one with a large arc and substance.

"...I said, 'Is it going to be about his race or is he going to be a human being?' They said, 'Naw, he's a doctor that's in [Miranda's] building who she meets in an elevator and they hit it off.' That was important," Underwood said.

The humanizing role, plus the fact that Sex and the City was one of his wife's favorite shows, he took the job.

Niall Horan’s “Heartbreak Weather” drops 43 spots on the Billboard 200 chart in its 2nd week




Ouch! Despite Niall Horan’s desperate pleas on Twitter to fans to purchase and stream his latest effort, “Heartbreak Weather,” the album dropped 43 spots from 4 to 47 in its second week. You hate to see it. Nail initially debuted at no. 4 last week with sales of 59,000 total units (42,000 in pure sales). His sales dipped 79% in his second week with 12k in overall streams and sales.

For comparison, his debut solo album “Flicker” debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 152,000 units (128,000 in pure sales). It could be worse. At least he didn’t fall completely out of the charts: Louis Tomlinson and his debut solo album “Walls,” debuted at no. 9 but fell completely out of the top 200 in its second week. And then there’s Liam Payne who debuted at no. 111.

Welp. That’s what he gets for paying “On The Loose” dust until the end of his first era and for not making “New Angel” the first single. But I digress...

"Greenland" Trailer



Movie trailers! Remember those? Used to come out when we had movies going to theaters instead of shoved into the abyss that is TBD. Ah, seems like it was only last month.

Anyway, the synopsis on the youtube page is not in English, but it can be summed up as thus;

Gerard Butler. Meteors strike the earth a bunch. Central Florida. Basically, a compoundium of disasters. Probably better than Geostorm.

The film (may) be released on June 12th in the States and (may) be released on August 21st in the UK.

Canadian Pop Artist and Author Alex Kazemi Explains Why He Came Out as Demisexual




“I’m a demisexual demigod,” Kazemi revealed in an interview with King Kong Garcon Magazine. For those of you asking who? Kazemi is a Canadian pop artist and author of “Pop Magick — A Simple Guide to Bending Your Reality,” which was released in February 2020 and includes a foreword by Rose McGowan. “Demisexuality is the future. The idea of demisexuality is only having sex with people that you feel emotions, love or energy for. It’s so much about the souls connecting.”

People have since criticized him for this, some even making jokes that his orientation is stanning Demi Lovato. The 25-year-old doesn’t have social media so he responded to the criticism through OUT Magazine.

“Demisexuality is the orientation that best fits me. I don’t experience sexual attraction to someone unless I’m emotionally attracted to them. Some people take it a step further and identify as demisexual-hetero, demi-homo, demi-bi. I just identify as demi.”

“I actually call it a magickal orientation because we are a lesser known orientation and are just becoming visible now. It’s magick and rare, and special to be demisexual and I’d love to date someone one day who also identifies this way.”

“The frustration people are facing for wanting me to label me in their box they feel I fit in has nothing to do with me. I am doing what works for me, and I’m not asking to be believed or accepted. I am following my instincts; this is just what fits for me. I know that I’m rare, and I'm willing to take that people are skeptical and believe this in an invalid orientation. Maybe because this is something new it will scare people, but I’m happy to take that risk, to be myself and hope others can do the same, for those who are out there and feel the same as me.”

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - April



Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

'The Good Fight' Season 4 Trailer

For the 5 of us going down with this ship....




Yet another white man Hugh Dancy joins the cast as a recurring cast member in season 4. And in slightly unrelated news, Delroy Lindo is no longer a series regular from season 5. He wasn't fired or anything like that, he appears to be deeply committed to a new show - Harlem’s Kitchen - this doesn't even have a series commitment yet, they are just rounding out the cast for the pilot. But he'd rather be on that than 'The Good Fight' - I kid (maybe not) it is apparently a pleasant exit from The Good Fight for all parties and doors are open. Read more about Delroy Lindo's exit at the second source in the link below.

Shawn and Camila go on weird meditation walk and confuse the internet

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are quarantining together in Cabello's Miami home. The pair has held a IG live concert to benefit WHO and Global Citizen and hosted a talk and guided meditation on IG live with meditation expert Jeff Warren.

The pair has also been papped going on morning walks almost every day and were caught doing a weird meditation walk today that has confused the internet. In the paparazzi video, the pair can be seen walking very slowly with their eyes closed, taking long deep breaths. Some fans have compared it to Harry Potter and Ron Weasley walking back to Hogwarts after being attacked in the Forbidden Forest.

They've been caught on morning walks in Camila's neighborhood on other days but never doing this weird meditation walk.

ONTD Reading Challenge: Read a Book With a Scandalous Past

Hey everyone! April is upon us, and hjalmartazar and milfordacademy have not forsaken you amid the pandemic. We hope everyone is ok and staying safe <3 The reading challenge must go on!

This month's task is to read a book that caused scandal or major controversy when it was released. We're talking widespread bans, major social outrage, protests, governmental or religious condemnation, the author being prosecuted, arrested or exiled for its writing, etc. You'll see what we mean from the examples below (which, as usual, are suggestions - you can read something else as long as it fits the task). Try not to pick a book that has merely caused criticism or that was "challenged" by a single random public school in the US.

The scandal can also be related to the author or the publication of the book itself, for example, the book being a hoax or the author being a scammer or other kind of criminal (e.g. James Frey's "A Million Little Pieces").


1988_Salman_Rushdie_The_Satanic_Verses.jpg

THE SATANIC VERSES (Salman Rushdie)

SUMMARY: Just before dawn one winter’s morning, a hijacked aeroplane blows apart high above the English Channel and two figures tumble, clutched in an embrace, towards the sea: Gibreel Farishta, India’s legendary movie star, and Saladin Chamcha, the man of a thousand voices. Washed up, alive, on an English beach, their survival is a miracle. But there is a price to pay. Gibreel and Saladin have been chosen as opponents in the eternal wrestling match between Good and Evil. But chosen by whom? And which is which? And what will be the outcome of their final confrontation?

THE SCANDAL: Partly inspired by the life of Muhammed, this Booker Prize finalist caused major controversy, as some Muslims accused it of blasphemy and mocking their faith. Ayatollah Khomeini, then Supreme Leader of Iran, issued a fatwa on 14 February 1989 calling for the death of Rushdie and his publishers. This resulted in several failed assassination attempts on Rushdie, and attacks on several connected individuals. The Italian and Norwegian translators were seriously injured, the Turkish translator was the target of arsonists who killed 37 people while trying to get him, and the Japanese translator was stabbed to death. The fatwa against Rushdie still exists, and the bounty on his head was even raised in 2016 (it is now over 3 million dollars).
