"As The Guardian clickbait-titled their 2018 article: “Robyn transformed pop music”, and they aren't wrong. Everyone from Britney Spears to Taylor Swift, Charli XCX, Teagan and Sara, and Ariana Grande have taken bits and pieces from Robyn's sound, persona and work-ethic. All this plus, Robyn's “Dancing on My Own” is one of the most perfect pop singles of the twenty-tens. But who is Robyn? How did she get here? And how did a 30-something Euro-pop artist outdo the greatest faces and producers in modern pop?"
I'm sure most of us knew some of what's in this video already. But I know I had no idea that she was the prototype that made Britney and every other big pop girl of the 2000s, even possible. And this is a nice deep dive that explains not just about Robin's career but 2000s and 2010s pop in general. And how it became the dominant sound, replacing rock as the prime mover of youth culture, up to, in my opinion, this day. Enjoy!
Trigger warning: Max Martin is given prominent mentions due to his overwhelming presence in contemporary pop music.
Featuring new music by Amorphous, Bad Bunny, Billie Eilish, Charlotte Day Wilson, Declan McKenna, Half Waif, Inhaler, Jam & Lewis, Jennifer Lopez and Rauw Alejandro, KIM WOOJIN, Maluma, Mariah the Scientist, Nina Nesbitt, Omar Apollo, Post Malone, SF9, Snoh Aalegra, TAEYEON, Tkay Maidza and Twin Shadow

In the caption, Christina says "I met Josh when I wasn’t in a state of fear or fight-or-flight … I had taken time off social, hired a spiritual coach and smoked a Bufo toad (which basically reset my brain and kicked out years of anxiety in 15 mins)." Christina announced her split from her second husband Ant Anstead late last year. (edit: apparently Ant's now dating Renee Zellweger. they were papped a few days ago) Her first husband was "Flip or Flop" costar Tarek El-Moussa, who is currently engaged to "Selling Sunset" star Heather Young. Christina has two kids with her ex Tarek and one with her ex Ant.
(A/N: OP thought "smoking toad" had something to do with shrooms (shrooms = mushrooms, mushrooms = toadstool, toadstool = toad) but nope, it's smoking toad venom.
The venom of the Bufo Alvarius toad is a controlled substance in the US. It is alleged to help with depression and stress.
ontd, would you smoke toad venom?
also hope this one works, mods!
In 1980, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man. During the early days of the agency’s criminal profiling unit, FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier met with the incarcerated Ted Bundy in the hopes of understanding the psychology of the serial killer and providing closure for the victim’s families. As Hagmaier delves into Bundy’s dark and twisted mind, a strange and complicated relationship develops that neither man expected.
🚨BIG SPOILERS FOR 'SPACE JAM 2'🚨
Almost everyone and their momma is on Space Jam, but there's one HUGE CAMEO that has leaked online.
[You have been warned!]
Michael Jordan's cameo in 'Space Jam' has leaked online... but there's a twist... [Spoiler (click to open)]It's actually Michael B. Jordan. Not the one from the original Space Jam. The real Michael Jordan is not in the movie.
- mentions the fact that a whole bunch of famous people who were in popular movies didn't see that success translate to other films
- Also mentions one movie where no one gave a fuck about the leads (2017's "Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets", which the OP personally loved) so no one really saw it, against Besson's 90's classic "The Fifth Element".
- Says the closest movie that almost became a hit was 2019's "Alita: Battle Angel" (which the OP also loves)
- Also points out that marketing costs have inflated so something like "Jupiter Ascending" (which, sigh, the OP also loves are you seeing a pattern yet) had to make almost 500$m at the global box office to succeed (and it didn't)
tldr; Very few people see a movie because the person once starred in a blockbuster and now they're in something else. ("They were just willing to show up to a new movie where the “franchise” was merely a popular movie star in a high-concept plot or preferred genre") Thinks the idea of the 'movie star system' ("people will see a Meg Ryan rom com bc it stars Meg Ryan, and Middle America knows exactly what it's getting") from the late 90s should return.
Well, that's what I pulled out of it.
Rapper Juvenile wants everyone to “Vax That Thang Up.”— CNN (@CNN) July 8, 2021
“It was a great way to put awareness out there for, especially for people like me and people that look like me,” he says on the remake of his iconic hit. https://t.co/VDjiYErdW9 pic.twitter.com/h1hzMSFX5w
A revamp of Juvenile's 1998 top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Back That Thang Up," was remade with a pandemic-inspired twist as "Vax That Thang Up," aimed at raising the vaccination awareness within the Black community. Juvenile said, "I’m trying to make everybody see it from my point of view. So I just think that we all should, you know, take time out and get educated on it first, and then we all can be vaccinated hopefully in the future.” Juvenile just wanted a lighthearted approach an effort to help the country march toward herd immunity from the virus that has killed more than 605,000 Americans to date. The revised lyrics are as follows: "Gurl you can be the queen ... after quarantine," Mannie raps in the song which features the refrain, "Girl, you looks good, won’t you vax that thang up/ You’s a handsome young brother, won’t you vax that thang up/ Date in real life you need to vax that thang up/ Feeling freaky all night you need to vax that thang up.”
Eric McCormack Tells Sean Hayes That He May Have Developed a 'Psychosomatic' Need for Nasal Spray https://t.co/shTmcRpkcB— People (@people) July 6, 2021
on Sean Hayes'podcast Hypochondiractor Eric McCormack spoke about being dependent on Nasal Spray for years and that he used it even when he did not need it:
"I couldn't get on a plane without knowing that I had the nasal spray in my pocket."I couldn't even go on stage. I don't think I did an episode of Will & Grace where I didn't [have it]. And I didn't need it. It wasn't like I was stuffed up. I just thought the only way I'm going to be able to really breathe is if I give myself a little squirt in each nostril."

Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz explains how he started dating Jennifer Aniston https://t.co/BIIegsop6a— TODAY (@TODAYshow) July 8, 2021
Jennifer Aniston has had a few high-profile relationships over the years, but there's one fans might have forgotten about, with Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz.
The 56-year-old recalls his brief relationship with the actor in a new episode of Vice TV's series "Dark Side of the '90s" and explains that the two met at Johnny Depp's infamous Los Angeles nightclub, the Viper Room.
"I met Jennifer Aniston there, 'cause a bunch of my friends lied to me and told me she had a crush on me. Those same friends lied to her and told her I had a crush on her," he said in a clip shared on Wednesday. Aniston and Duritz dated in 1995, but, it wasn't meant to be. "It didn't last very long, but she's a nice girl," he said.
