"You were only in the studio because he wanted to sleep with you"

Let me present to you: Some Swedish news from last year about a song released in 2014 where Jason Derulo and his crew collaborates with a woman and then skips the important part of credit that woman for her work

Swedish artist and songwriter Molly Sandén talks about the incident in a book from 2019 about women’s conditions in the music industry called Ni måste flytta på er (~You have to get out of the way) by Annah Björk. Molly first met Derulo when he walked into a studio where Molly recorded some songs. Derulo was impressed by her and told Sandén that they should write together sometime. The next time they meet is in the studio property The Jim Henson Company Lot in Hollywood with both their crews and some additional songwriters. This meeting results in the song Stupid Love (that also includes some vocals from Molly) and was released as the fifth single from Derulo’s album Tattoos (2013)

In 2019 Molly Sandén recived a prize from the copyright organisation ALIS for her "powerful and skilful actions in asserting her copyright rights in an industry where the power structures are difficult to stand up to"

ONTD Original: Horror & Post-MeToo Hollywood

Director Jovanka Vuckovic recently took to Twitter to express concern over allegations of child molestation against genre producer, Adam Donaghey, being ignored - if not outright buried - by the genre and indie film communities:

Most troubling are not just the allegations against Donaghey, but other worms found beneath the lifted rock, as expressed by community insiders following social media exposure of the incident.

Nearly three years after the #MeToo dam burst, the entertainment industry is still broken. But are we ever going to reach culpability - or just more lip service?

Matthew McConaughey: Coronavirus pandemic is getting "hijacked" by "partisan politics"

Matthew McConaughey went on F0X News on Tuesday night and told the host:

- "I could feel that this united purpose we all have as Americans to beat this enemy and this virus, that purpose got hijacked a bit by partisan politics.

- "All of a sudden the narrative became: if you want to go to work, you're on the far right. If you don't go to work, you want to stay home, you're on the far left. And now even the mask wearing is getting politicized, where if you want to wear a mask, you wear a mask, you're a liberal. And if you don't, you're conservative. And that's just not true."

- "This is not about politics, it's about us, the USA. We gotta take care of each other right now. We have a collective purpose. Look at who we are in World War II. And we have a crisis that came to us. We were united in that purpose. And all of a sudden the human factor started to get split and two tribes started fighting each other in partisan politics. And that is not what we need. We need a collection right now. This is a tug of war at the virus. We need all hands on the rope."

Here's his latest "USA. Just keep livin." PSA:

Happy Friday, ONTD! What's everybody listening to today?

9-1-1's Queerbaiting attempts with Buck and Eddie have convinced Jennifer Love Hewitt it'll happen.

So, 9-1-1 is probably one of the shows with most queerbaiting moments. For those of you that don't know...(plays classical music)

Queer-baiting. Verb. A marketing technique used to attract queer viewers to a television or film, that involves creating romantic or sexual tension between two same-sex characters (usually heterosexual) but never making it canon or evolving on it.

Unlike other queerbaiting shows, 9-1-1 fans do think Buck (Oliver Stark) and Eddie (Ryan Guzman) can end up together because it's a Ryan Murphy show, and his shows are pretty diverse (9-1-1 has a poc lesbian firefighter and her wife, and a Angela Basset's gay ex-husband as part of their regular cast. In it's spin-off, 9-1-1 Lone Star, Rob Lowe's son is a gay firefighter, his boyfriend is a latino gay cop, and there's a FTM trans firefighter).

Jennifer Love Hewitt (who plays sister to one of the half of the couple) has fallen for 9-1-1's queerbaiting and thinks there's no way they won't end up together.

[Here are some examples of 9-1-1 queerbaiting with Buck and Eddie.]Here's some of 9-1-1 queerbaiting offenses:

The one time they introduced Eddie as a sexy firefighter and 'rival' to Buck.

The one time at Christmas an elf thought they were a gay couple and he didn't correct her:

The one time he got really involved with an old gay couple:

That one time the actual show included a case in which people on a chat were talking about how they should be together:

The one time Buck had to tell Eddie he lost Cristopher (Eddie's son) in a Tsunami (as you do):

... and the subsequent 'now kiss' scene.

The one time they fought cause Eddie misses him (there was a lawsuit or something, i'm not watching for plot).

The one time they have a couple discussion that ends up in a 'yeah, i'm not breaking off this hug because i have feelings for you'.

Where to Begin: Tekashi vs. Tom Hanks, Billboard, Ariana Grande & Good Hygiene

Chet took to Instagram to question 6ix9ine’s popularity after his release from prison. “I’d rather be broke and be able to go where I like/do as I please than have 100 billion and have to live in hiding with 24/7 security team… think about that for all you idiots calling 69 a ‘goat’ and ‘legendary,'” Chet wrote on his Instagram Story. “Don’t be fooled by social media,” Chet warned his followers. “That dude is SCARED SHITLESS but has no choice but to laugh and make light of it cuz he knows he’s a marked man for the rest of his life either way", Chet added. In retaliation the snitch and pedo snarkily replied, “Wishing his dad a speedy recovery,” referencing Tom Hanks’ recent battle with coronavirus.

Last Friday, the pedo & snitch rapper who resembles a human form of a parrot and vineral disease, released a new song and video created during his home confinement just weeks after being freed from federal lockup. Today the pedo rapper showed receipts from his label that his shitty song was gonna hit #1 but now Ariana & Justin's shitty song gonna get the top spot. In the video he displayed the forecasts that every label gets, claiming Ariana/Justin submitted 60K units last minute out of no where jumping from #5 to #1. For whatever reason Charlie Puth got involved and liked the pedo/rapper's post.

TikTok star faces backlash for spilling milk on subway and passengers as prank

Josh Popkin, a prank TikTok star with 3.3 million followers, is taking heat for two videos described as "privileged" and "selfish”. The comedian pours himself a crate full of Fruity Pebbles and milk before spilling the concoction on the floor of a New York subway car full of people wearing masks, splashing the users.

Criticism quickly arrived, ranging from noting the sheer privilege, people calling him out that we are in a pandemic and if he could have COVID, people in the subway are likely to get it too, over a prank or, the cleaning staff having to clean after the stunt.

Even the New York's transit authority and the New York Police Department's Office of the Deputy Commissioner of Public Information have responded to the incident, since this potentially endangered essential workers and passengers.

Carice Van Houten Says #MeToo Movement Caused Her to Question Graphic Sex Scenes

She revealed that the #MeToo movement has led her to regret many of her Game of Thrones sex scenes.
She feels they serve little narrative function.

“In retrospect, I thought, ‘Why did that scene have to be nude?' I’ve done that enough now. No more. I was always very liberal and I defended nudity because I thought, ‘Why can you have a machine gun and not see a nipple?’ I thought it was so weird. When the Me Too movement started, that’s when it started sinking in. It did sort of change my perspective on my whole career, not just Game of Thrones. I became very aware of the male gaze. It was not so much that I was blaming anyone, but that’s just how we evolved, and just how the movement affected me … My consciousness is bigger. I’m a bit more woke.”

How to Get Away With Murder Series Finale: How did it all end?

So what happened in the series finale of HTGAWM?

[Spoiler (click to open)]
- Annalise won her trail.
- During the press conference at the steps of the courthouse, Frank came up and shot the governer. Someone (not show who, some cops maybe) shot him down and he died in Bonnie's arms who came running to him. Annalise then noticed that Bonnie was also shot, and Bonnie died in Annalise's arms.
- Connor wanted to pay for his sins, and went to jail for 5 years, he asked Oliver for a divorce.
- Michaela walked away scott free but no one wanted anything to do with her.
- So who killed Annalise, then? The answer: No one. She died of old age about 30-40 years in the future. That wasn't Wes at her funeral but Wes and Laurel's son Christoph, who looks exactly like his dad. Laurel, Connor and Oliver (not divorced after all) were all at Annalise funeral in bad old people make-up.
- Eve spoke it Annalise's funeral.
- Michaela was not at Annalise's funeral, though we do see that she became a judge.
- - Nate did not die. He got a $20M settlement for hIs pOpS' death and built a justice center for inmates from the money. (Reminder: He killed two people with his bare hands, one of whom was innocent).
- The final scene is Christoph walking into Middleton as professor of the same class Annalise taught in the first episode. He mentions Annalise was his mentor and writes "How to Get Away With Murder" on the board. End scene.
