Florence Pugh Opens Up About Being Complicit In Cultural Appropriation



Pugh is opening up about being complicit in cultural appropriation before she understood what it was.
In a lengthy Instagram post ;
“The history and heartbreak over how when Black girls do it they’re mocked and judged, but when white girls for it, it’s only then perceived as cool. It was true. I could see how Black culture was being so obviously exploited. I was defensive and confused, white fragility coming out plain and simple.”

She went through a Henna phase when an Indian shop owner taught her about it.
“I thought because I was taught about it differently, I was an exception…I actually wasn’t being respectful in how I was using it. Stupid doesn’t even cut it. I was uneducated. I was unread.”

“I’m truly sorry to all of you that were offended for years or even just recently. I cannot dismiss the actions I bought into years ago, but I believe that we who were blind to such things must acknowledge them and recognize them as our faults, our ignorance and our white privilege and I apologize profusely that it took this long.”

Record Executives Told Christina Aguilera Her Name Was "Too Ethnic"



Christina Aguilera said that she faced pushback for her name. 
Pre-"Genie in a Bottle," she was told that she should change her name.
"Aguilera," she was told, was "too ethnic" and "too complicated."

"I remember when I was first coming up, there was a big debate around me on changing my last name because all the businessmen around me thought it was too long, too complicated, and too ethnic. 'Christina Agee' was an option, but that clearly wasn't going to fly. I was dead set against the idea and I wanted to represent who I really was. Being Latina, it is a part of my heritage and who I am."

Elton John's ex wife takes legal action against him



Sir Elton John's ex-wife Renate Blauel has launched legal action against him. The 67-year-old sound engineer filed a legal application last week for a High Court injunction against the 73-year-old singer.

Elton was married to Renate from 1984 to 1988, the pair divorced after Elton came out as gay. Aside from their marriage, Renate has largely stayed out of the spotlight, and has since remarried and lives in Germany.

The reason for the injunction - which is often pursued in matters relating to privacy, or to stop material being made public - is unclear, but Renate's lawyer has said Renate is "hoping to resolve it amicably."

Assumptions have been made that the filing is regarding her portrayal in Elton's musical biopic Rocketman or his biography, both released last year and both of which may have broken their alleged agreement to preserve her privacy. Elton has spoken highly of Renate over the years, and mentioned in his biography that he had invited her to meet his kids, but she "didn't want to" and he "respects" her decision. He also said of their divorce that she was "too decent and dignified" to take him to the cleaners.

Elton's representatives have declined to comment.

Elton speaks lovingly of his ex-wife but I completely understand why she's upset if he's broken their agreement. Hopefully Elton does right by her.

ontd original; the best disney princess songs, ranked

Rules:

  • Sung by a Disney Princess. Doesn't have to be official.

  • Has to be, in some capacity, about what they want, their dreams, their goals, whatever.

  • Has to be in one of the theatrical movies. So, honorary mention to Sarah Jefferies in "Descendants 3" for Queen of Mean.


#15 - In This Place / A Place Called Slaughter Race - "Ralph Breaks the Internet"



While Vanellope is the best princess...Sarah Silverman is not a singer. I wish they hadn't forced this on us. I know this movie was hellbent on satirizing everything but it didn't need to satirize the I want song. Enchanted this ain't.

(Spoilers; I forgot to include "True Love's Kiss" from Enchanted but I do like it)
