Taylor Swift Gives First Live Emotional Performance of "Soon You'll Get Bettrer"

To commemorate those who have lost their lives, are sick and/or experiencing loss from COVID-19, Taylor Swift recently released an emotional live performance of "Soon You'll Get Better" during the #TogetherAtHome concert through Global Citizen. The song was originally written for her mother who has been fighting cancer since 2015.

“That’s a song I don’t know if I’ll ever play it live," Taylor previously said about the song. "It’s just really difficult for me. It was hard to write. It’s hard to sing.”

Ayushmann Khurrana revisits gay Bollywood film, says ‘Cinema can do a lot to change mindsets’

Ayushmann Khurrana talked about his film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Bollywood’s first gay romcom, where he plays a man who clashes with his boyfriend’s conservative family.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a lighter take on the reality of homophobia that exists in India and also an attempt to bring such unconventional stories to the fore. Art and cinema, in my opinion, can do a lot to change mindsets. With [SMZS] that was our intent – to bring the conversation on same-sex love to all of India.”

Ayushmann says he is happy to have been a part of the movie and is excited that it’s now streaming on Amazon Prime Video so it can reach a global audience.

ONTD ORIGINAL: Potential Best Original Song Winners for 2020 + "Should THAT have Won?"

So I've done this twice a year since like ...208, and I enjoy it. But we all know that only a smattering of movies came out before The Sickness, so this is a combo "Ha ha, the Academy has to acknowledge mainstream art and music!" and "Remember when we had movies? And nominated songs? And the Academy awarded the wrong one?"


Normani + Megan Thee Stallion - "Diamonds" - Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

"I don't need you, all my diamonds drippin' wet."

So far, we had 2 superhero movies come out this year. One was eh, and the other was "Birds of Prey". It's bombastic and fun, even if it's not the best song on the album (Which samples some other songs, so no nominations here).

Other potential awards should include production design, because it's coherent, fitting, and gaudy. And it should win for gaudy! Also "First DCEU film OP paid for since Suicide Squad."

Remember when, in spectacular fashion, The Academy fucked up on announcing Best Picture? Of course you do.

La La Land did win a multitude of things, including Best Original Song for "City of Stars", which, considering some of the talent involved, was not a bad song. But it wasn't the best the film had to offer.

Following numerous technical issues, the Teddy Riley/Babyface Verzuz is back on

Where to begin...

Last night, R&B legends Teddy Riley and Babyface were set to participate in a Verzuz battle on Instagram. Timbaland and Swizz Beatz created the friendly competition as a way to give back to fans during this time. The Riley/Babyface battle competition was highly publicized on social media and fans turned in to see their favorites perform.

What followed was a glorious and hilarious night on social media, particularly Black Twitter. The event was highlighted by Toni Braxton's tweets documenting the fiasco.

Some of her tweets (definitely go to her page and check it out):

Babyface was alone and ready to go. Teddy Riley had an entire crew with him to film his performance. Riley was also trying to stream the performance on his website and on Instagram at the same time. That led to the echo and additional sound issues.

Babyface was the one to pull the plug and was extremely gracious at Riley's numerous fuckups.

The battle has been rescheduled for tomorrow, 4/20, at 8pm est.

One Million Moms wants to boycott Disney over gay dads on Ducktales

The Christian hate group One Million Moms is once again trying to boycott Disney, this time over an episode from the Ducktales reboot revealing that the character Violet Sabrewing has two dads.

Ducktales co-executive producer Frank Angones previously talked about the dads on his tumblr, writing that “we had a lot of conversations about who Violet was and what her background was and came up with this fun notion of her too enthusiastic, overly supportive dads who love being dads.”

Angones also wrote that he was “well aware that the ‘queer representation through parents and background characters’ trope is an issue” and acknowledged that “we really have not done enough relevant LGBTQ+ rep. We do have some themes and ideas coming up that address relevant LGBTQ+ narratives. But there’s always opportunity for a lot more; I don’t want a cop out and a cookie for saying ‘look at this one thing we did!’”
