Stephen King Says He Was ‘Canceled’ By J.K. Rowling

Stephen King says he was cancelled by JK Rowling after he tweets " Trans women are women", not much after that infamous tweets that Rowling did attacking trans women on Twitter.

Jo canceled me,” he said. “She sorta blocked me and all that.

Here’s the thing: She is welcome to her opinion. That’s the way that the world works. If she thinks that trans women are dangerous, or that trans women are somehow not women, or whatever problem she has with it—the idea that someone “masquerading” as a woman is going to assault a “real” woman in the toilet—if she believes all those things, she has a right to her opinion.”

And then someone tweeted at me, ‘Do you think trans women are women?’ and I said, ‘Yes, I do.’ And that’s what she got angry about—my opinion,” he added. “So, nobody has ‘canceled’ J.K. Rowling. She’s doing fine. I just felt that her belief was, in my opinion, wrong. We have differing opinions, but that’s life.”

On May 19, he defended his ideas on " free speech "again on Twitter:
(he also defended Woody Allen in the same parameter of free speech)

“You’re amazing, sweetheart. You’re amazing and strong and brave. And what’s most important to everyone is that you’re OK, and that’s the most beautiful gift that we all have,” Det. Benson said to bad ass 11-year-old Alyssa Bonal. Alyssa learned from watching “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” to fight back and plant evidence on her attacker. Alyssa said the man was holding a knife as he tried to drag her to his car, but she fought back and both fell. He ran back to the car, but not before she left a clue on the man that police said was able to use connect him to the attempted kidnapping. When police arrested disgusting piece of human life Jared Paul Stanga, not surprisingly from Florida. They saw blue slime on his arm, the same slime Alyssa had been playing with. Stanga has been charged with attempted kidnapping and aggravated assault and battery. He’s being held on more than $1.5 million bond. Stanga's wife said the arrest is just a misunderstanding, even though the video clearly shows her husband trying to kidnap Alyssa.

Don't mess!!!

The LA Public Library kicked off AAPI Heritage Month on May 4 with a CELEBRATION - a live performance from LA band The Linda Lindas. It was only yesterday, however, that their set exploded over the internet when the LAPL posted their performance of "Racist Sexist Boy" to their social media.

"A little while before we went into lockdown, a boy in my class came up to me and said that his dad told him to stay away from Chinese people. After I told him that I was Chinese, he backed away from me. Eloise and I wrote this song based on that experience."

The Linda Lindas are a quartet made up of Mila (10), Eloise (13), Lucia (14), and Bela (16) who describe themselves as embodying the spirit of original punk, power pop and new wave through today's ears, eyes and minds.

Lady Gaga details 'psychotic break' following sexual assault at 19 years old


In the pilot episode of Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry's new Apple TV+ series, The Me You Can't See, Lady Gaga (credited by her real name, Stefani Germanotta) went into detail about the trauma she experienced early in her career at the hands of an unnamed music producer.

Following an unnerving encounter during which the producer threatened to burn all her music unless she undressed in front of him, Germanotta, then nineteen, said she suffered a "total psychotic break" [Sensitive Content]after learning she had been impregnated by her rapist.

[Sensitive Content]Living in an "ultra-state of paranoia" in the aftermath, she recalled frequently self-harming and contemplating suicide, explaining that she "was not the same girl" for some time.

In the years since, Germanotta has slowly healed, but [Sensitive Content]"even if [she has] six brilliant months, all it takes is getting triggered once to feel bad... thinking about dying, wondering if [she's] ever going to do it."

As for the identity of her abuser, she has no plans to divulge his name. "I understand this Me Too movement. I understand that some people feel really comfortable with this, and I do not," she said. "I do not ever want to face that person again."

“I Will Never Be Bullied Into Silence”: Prince Harry Opens Up to Oprah, Again, In Documentary



Harry's new five-part show with Oprah, The Me You Can't See, launched on AppleTV+ overnight in the US

Harry told Oprah: 'Certainly now I will never be bullied into silence'

Some excerpts from the interview:

Harry credits Meghan with his decision to start therapy

"Towards my late 20s, everything became really hectic for me. To the point of exhaustion, I was traveling all over the place because from my family's perspective, I guess I was the person who was, like, 'We need somebody to go there. Nepal, Harry. You go.' I was always the yes man. I was always one who didn't say yes, but then yes, yes, of course. Yes. Yes, yes, led to burnout," he explains.

"Then with therapy, all his bottled-up emotions and frustrations came to the surface. "It was like someone had taken a lid off all of the emotions that I've suppressed for so many years suddenly came to the forefront. And I saw GPs [general practitioners], I saw doctors, I saw therapists, I saw alternative therapists. I saw all sorts of people.

Ultimately, "it was meeting and being with Meghan, I knew that if I didn't do therapy and fix myself, that I was going to lose this woman who I could see spending the rest of my life with."

In the series' second episode, Harry says he knew if he didn't go to a therapist, he would lose Meghan, whom he wed in 2018.

Did The Jonas Brothers x Marshmello Plagiarize Daft Punk and Wham! With “Leave Before You Love Me” ?



The Jonas Brothers have a new song out with EDM DJ / Producer Marshmello. I submitted a post (now deleted) highlighting the song, but 8 comments in and it’s clear that there is some plagiarizing and fuckery going on. That’s right Marshmello, you helmet wearing hack, that song you “produced” with no sample or writing credits to the original French helmet wearing duo — Daft Punk — could lead to a costly copyright lawsuit. Just ask Ed Sheeran (thr ice), Pharrell and Robin Thicke among others.
