Feds Order Kim Kardashian to Give Back Looted Statue

kardashian statue.png

Kim Kardashian has been told by the feds to relinquish a looted statue that was purchased in her name. The ancient Roman sculpture depicts the bottom half of a woman (shocking). It dates to the 1st or 2nd century, is called "Fragment of Myron's Samian Athena", and it stolen from Italy. Kim purchased it in 2016 from the Axel Vervoordt Gallerly in Belgium.

In a bizarre twist, Kim's reps claim that she never bought the statue:

“Kim never purchased this piece and this is the first that she has learned of its existence. We believe it may have been purchased using her name without authorization and because it was never received, she was unaware of the transaction.”

Selena Quintanilla Perez's Complicated Legacy

As part two of Netflix's questionable Quintanilla family approved miniseries premieres, Rolling Stone magazine's Rosa Sanchez examines Selena Quintanilla Perez's complicated legacy after her 1995 murder. Interviewing fans and widower Chris Perez, Sanchez explores how Selena's family's sabotaged the legacy of a beloved Latina icon in favor of revisionism and cash grabs.

  • Fans have complained about the Netflix series, which is more focused on the male Quintanilla members. Abraham, Selena's father, is shown as a stern but gentle loving father, even though his reputation is more nasty, money-hungry and controlling (Selena's former teacher testified Abraham pulled the kids out of school after she expressed concerns over Selena falling asleep in class after doing a night show as a child). While fans are happy forgotten band members have their moments, they are upset Selena is treated as more of a side character, or even just as an employee of her dad’s band.

  • In the series, Selena is portrayed as an innocent, soft-spoken, perfect daughter who is more interested in her parents’ approval than in her own life. The depiction is far different than in the Jennifer Lopez film, which Chris says is more accurate of Selena's actual personality. Selena’s mom Marcella is also underdeveloped, as is Chris, who is treated as a minor character (fans were also angered part two portrayed the famously shy Chris as jealous of Selena's success, when the opposite was true).

  • Selena’s brother, A.B. Quintanilla, has bad blood with many impersonators and fans. He routinely blocks fan accounts and blasts impersonators on social media. Selena fan accounts on Instagram and Facebook have gotten the cold shoulder from the family, even getting shut down.

  • Chris, currently in a legal battle with Abraham in order to gain control over his story and money, is nervous over how he'll be portrayed in part two even though he's glad he told his side in his book. Two months after Selena's death, Abraham had coerced a grieving Chris to sign his rights away to protect Selena's legacy and finances and Chris did so, trusting him. Chris says the current battle is not about family but business, since trying to be nice didn't work for 25 years. “I kind of feel like I’m in a situation where I can’t [back down]. I already did it once and certain things have gone down a certain type of way and I’m not gonna do it that same way again.”

  • Many Selena impersonators and tribute bands have received threatening letters and cease and desist letters from Abraham and Q Productions over their acts, especially when money is being made. He has left acts which perform for free alone. The family accuses performers of “unauthorized exploitation” of Selena’s name, and claim their use of it could “cause irreparable harm and/or dilution” to Selena's brand. By the way, you can buy official cheap and tacky tumblers with Selena's image from your local gas stations as well as ugly shirts from Forever 21!

  • Selena's fans are upset over the legal actions taken against impersonators, art, products and song covers because they consider that to be her enduring legacy getting sabotaged. Fans feel while the Quintanilla family happily profits off royalties, funko pops and a make up collection, they punish fans who wish to celebrate Selena their own way. They've also noted how the Quintanilla family stops Chris from making money on his life with Selena, yet uses his book for scenes in the Netflix series.

  • Chris, regarding Selena tributes and fan accounts, says he understands why people see her as a symbol for the Latino community. “I think it’s because of what she represents, which is strong morals, family, hard work ethic, you know, she was a good person all the way around, and we already know how talented she was. So, if that’s how people want to use her image or treat it, I mean, I think it’s a good thing.”

  • Abraham, Suzette, A.B Quintanilla and reps from Q Productions and Selena's estate declined to comment for the story.

That time Beyoncé met Selena

Houston native Beyoncé once told a story of how she briefly met Tejano superstar Selena.

"I did actually meet Selena in The Galleria mall in Houston. But I didn't say much to Selena, because I wasn't a celebrity and I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas, I heard her on the radio. And I think listening to her album, even though I didn't know exactly what she was singing, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation. "

That brief meeting was dramatized for season 2 of Selena: The series, which is now on Netflix


Peloton Recalls all Treadmills

Affected machines are the TREAD and TREAD+.
Peloton initially pooh-pooh'd concerns and did not cooperate with the CDC, even after footage surfaced of a child being pulled under the tread and struggling to free himself.

Many children have been injured, and one has died. Other, less deadly reports indicdiate the touchscreen loosens and falls off on the TREAD, the cheaper model that has yet to hit the US market ( and probably won't)

CEO John Foley said in a statement Wednesday. “We should have engaged more productively with them from the outset. For that, I apologize.

Peloton encourages people to stop use of the treadmills immediately and return them (somehow).

Oscars Producer Steven Soderbergh Reveals Why Oscars Show Order Was Changed


he is not aware of the backlash against the choice to not do montages/minimal clips because he did not read reviews

he stands by the "No Zoom" rule

the change of the award order:

“We thought it might be fun to mix it up, especially if people didn’t know that was coming. So that was always part of the plan. And then when the nominations came out and there was even the possibility that Chadwick could win posthumously, our feeling was if he were to win and his widow were to speak on his behalf, there would be nowhere to go after that. So we stuck with it.”

In theaters and streaming exclusively on @HBOMax May 14.

In an interview with ET, Angelina explained why she enjoyed portraying Hannah in the movie:

“She’s been very healing for me, because you just get so broken and then you stand back up,” Angelina said

Because of the changes in her home life, Angelina said that she’s unable to continue directing movies.

“I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that’s not made it possible for me to direct for a few years,” she told ET in April. “I needed to just do shorter jobs and be home more, so I kind of went back to doing a few acting jobs. That’s really the truth of it.”

Grabovoi codes, real life “cheat codes”, becoming viral on TikTok

Grabovoi codes are “cheating codes” to input in the universe to influence it into granting whatever you’re desiring.

The codes have been popping in spirituality and wellness related circles in the app, they work under the idea of manifesting (thinking about something a lot until it happens). Grabovoi codes, are taking over TikTok with "cheat codes" for wealth, health, and love.

Consisting in a series of numbers, you need to write or draw them out, input the code into the universe mesh to get the expected result. To manifest money, you repeat numbers, "520 741 8" out loud, trace them in the air, or write them down, then just wait for the universe to grant it. People on TikTok SWEAR by them.

Grabovoi codes were invented by mathematician Grigory Grabovoy. In 2008, he was convicted of fraud in Russia for promising parents of killed children that he could resurrect them.

Manifesting a promotion and finishing paying my property tbh. What are you beckoning the universe for, ONTD?
