More Scott Rudin fallout on Broadway

Following accusations about Scott Rudin's abusive behavior and initial consequences/reactions, the latest fallout is Rob Roth, who directed the original Broadway production of the Disney musical Beauty and the Beast. He was set to direct the upcoming UK and Ireland tour of Beauty and the Beast.

Last week, Karen Olivo announced in an Instagram video that she would not be returning to Moulin Rouge as Satine when Broadway reopens. She said the industry response to Rudin's (alleged) abuse was unacceptable and that it was more important for her to help build a better theater industry than to just keep making money.

On April 16, Rob Roth wrote an email to Scott Rudin about Karen Olivo that said, "You deserve an honorary Tony Award for somehow getting that horrible woman to quit acting. It's a miracle. God bless you Scott for your service to American theatre.” Unfortunately for him, he composed this email while he was on a plane and the woman sitting next to him saw the entire email. She transcribed it and posted it.

Roth confirmed the contents of the leaked email and released the following statement: "Upon consideration of recent events, it is clear that I am not in a position to lead this production at this time. I see now that the sentiments included in a private email that went public were thoughtless and insensitive, and I am profoundly sorry that my comments have caused unintended pain."

Matt West, the original choreographer for the Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast, is taking over as director of the UK/Ireland tour.

Nugent has said the virus was “not a real pandemic.” Then Nugent went to ask, "You know, I guess I would ask you — because I’m addicted to truth, logic and common sense — and my common-sense meter would demand the answer to why weren’t we shut down for COVID one through 18?"
The covid denier thought he was dying, “I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days," adding: "So I was officially tested positive for COVID-19 today.”

Popisho

Everyone in Popisho was born with a little something-something, boy, a little something extra. The local name was cors. Magic, but more than magic. A gift, nah? Yes. From the gods: a thing so inexpressibly your own.

Xavier Redchoose is the macaenus of his generation, anointed by the gods to make each resident one perfect meal when the time is right. Anise, his long-lost love, is on a march toward reckoning with her healing powers. The governor’s daughter, Sonteine, still hasn’t come into her cors, but her corrupt father is demanding the macaenus make a feast for her wedding. Meanwhile, graffiti messages from an unknown source are asking hard questions. A storm is brewing. Before it comes, before the end of the day, this wildly imaginative narrative will take us across the islands, through their history, and into the lives of unforgettable characters.

Rumored Colton Underwood Netflix series sparks backlash


Over 25,000 people have signed an online petition urging Netflix to cancel a rumored upcoming reality series starring newly-out Bachelor alum Colton Underwood.

It was reported that the streaming giant would document Underwood's experiences as an openly gay man, alongside Olympian fame whore Gus Kenworthy, almost immediately after he opened up about his sexuality on Good Morning America's last Wednesday. The petition cites allegations of harassment and stalking, leveled against Underwood by ex Cassie Randolph, as justification for scrapping the project:

"Cassie is a victim of Colton's abuse, and he does not deserve a platform in any way. Regardless of his sexuality, Colton should not be given a platform as a result of his abusive, manipulative, and dangerous behavior."

Representatives for Netflix, Randolph and Underwood have yet to respond.

aly & aj release symptom of your touch music video (ft. alyson michalka only)



aly and aj released a simple music video for their new single symptom of your touch. both vocalists are on the track, but aj is missing from the video itself. "i think i slept in for this one," aj quipped on ig.

[lyrics]Every night gets worse
It's harder to control the urge
My blood pressure's up
And my judgement's on the way out

If you're asking me for closure
You just know what'll happen if I come over

It's a symptom of your touch
Symptom of your touch
If it feels so good
Why does it hurt so much?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ahh

Way too many mistakes
You're familiar so it makes it easy
Where did we go wrong?
Who am I to say that I don't need you?

If you're asking me for closure
Don't expect it to happen when I lose my composure

It's a symptom of your touch
Symptom of your touch
If it feels so good
Why does it hurt so much?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ahh

Why am I never capable
Of doing the right thing just for once?
Why am I never capable
Of doing the right thing just for once?
Why am I never capable
It's just the symptom of us
It's just the symptom of us

It's a symptom of your touch
Symptom of your touch
If it feels so good
Why does it hurt so much?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Vanessa Bryant, Kobe Bryant estate elect not to renew partnership with Nike



Kobe Bryant's five-year, post-retirement endorsement extension with Nike have expired this month.
Vanessa Bryant and the Kobe Bryant estate elected not to renew the partnership.

"Kobe's Nike contract expired on 4/13/21. Kobe and Nike have made some of the most beautiful basketball shoes of all time, worn and adored by fans and athletes in all sports across the globe. It seems fitting that more NBA players wear my husband's product than any other signature shoe."

Bryant and the estate had grown frustrated with Nike limiting the availability of Kobe products during his retirement and after his January 2020 death in a helicopter crash. There was also frustration with the lack of availability of Kobe footwear in kids' sizes.

"My hope will always be to allow Kobe's fans to get and wear his products. I will continue to fight for that. Kobe's products sell out in seconds. That says everything. I was hoping to forge a lifelong partnership with Nike that reflects my husband's legacy. We will always do everything we can to honor Kobe and Gigi's legacies. That will never change."

Nike had presented an extension offer that was not in line with expectations of an ongoing "lifetime" structure similar to the Nike Inc. contracts held by both Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

All future releases of Kobe Bryant-branded footwear and apparel manufactured by Nike will be halted.
The Kobe Bryant estate could enter into negotiations with outside brands to form a new partnership.
Kobe Bryant estate owns the rights to both the "Mamba" logo and his signature.
The "Sheath" logo often featured on the tongue of Nike's Kobe sneakers is mutually owned by both sides.

Olivia Rodrigo Compares Upcoming Debut Album ‘Sour’ To Alanis Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill’




In a new interview with Zane Lowe, Queen of Indie Pop — Olivia Rodrigo — compared her upcoming debut album “Sour” to Alanis Morissette’s iconic ‘Jagged Little Pill.’

“It’s really just what I love—which is songwriter, lyric-based music. It’s very much taken as a slice of my life. I drew a lot of inspiration from this period of my life, where I was feeling a lot of heartbreak and a lot of insecurity,” she explains. “There’s this period of time all 16, 17, 18 year old kids go through where they just feel so incredibly lost and just angsty for no reason and sad. This album to me is my interpretation of that period of my life that I was going through.

“It’s reminiscent of sort of the albums like Jagged Little Pill that I love. I’m super critical of everything, but I’m really happy with this album. And that doesn’t happen very often where I feel completely sure,” she continues. “I mean, obviously you don’t feel completely sure of anything, but I really feel like it’s the best that I can do right now, and I’m real proud of that. In a year, the best that I can do is going to be something totally different, and that’s just the cool thing about putting out music when you’re a teenager.”

Will you be streaming this generation’s Jagged Little Pill, Sour, on May 21st?

Discussions between David Fincher and Netflix are ongoing about the potential return of 'Mindhunter' for a third season.

Previously Fincher said, "It’s a 90-hour workweek. It absorbs everything in your life. When I got done (with the second season), I was pretty exhausted, and I said, ‘I don’t know if I have it in me right now to break season three.’

But now, according to a source, "All I can really tell you about Mindhunter is that conversations between Netflix and Fincher are ongoing. They are discussing the possibility of bringing the show back for a third season. It’s still very early days, but Fincher sounds more upbeat about the project."
