Billie Eilish dragged over favorite cartoon character



In a newly unearthed interview clip making the rounds on Twitter, the singer was asked over her favorite animated character, to which she responded it was Cindy from The Boondocks, explaining that she relates to her. Said cartoon is known for its satirical representation of black caricatures, written by a black creator. With Cindy McPhearson, being a white girl known for her black accent, and “black” interests.

Prompting Twitter users to be indignant over her choice, saying that Billie relating to a white character whose entire personality rests on appropriating is concerning, since that character is for black people to laugh at only. With other faction defending her, claiming that people with no real problems will nitpick at any innocuous thing to fake outrage and these cases ultimately halting the advancement of real progress towards social issues, by turning these subjects into a joke.

The reason the singer expressed her liking to Cindy was because of her badass reputation and how much she loved that Cindy always defended her friends.

Jodie Turner-Smith Robbed at Cannes, Theft Includes Mother's Wedding Ring



On Friday, burglars broke into the actress’ room at the Marriott hotel on Croisette and stole jewels reportedly worth tens of thousands of euros, including her mother’s wedding ring. Turner-Smith wasn't in the room at the time, eating breakfast with her family, including her one-year old daughter.

Immediately following the incident, Turner-Smith was transported to Majestic Hotel and was assigned security detail to accompany her wherever she went. The extra security measure was taken due to Turner-Smith's daughter being with her.

According to Variety:

It’s believed Turner-Smith, who is in Cannes for the first time, may have been targeted after wearing gold and diamond jewelry from the Gucci High Jewelry line to the “After Yang” premiere on Thursday night. Although the jewelry was immediately taken back following the premiere, it’s believed the robbers may have broken into Turner-Smith’s room believing the items were still in her possession.

Jodie filed a police report, and since there was no forced entry of the hotel room’s door, which is opened using a key card, an investigation is underway.

Diplo accused of sexually assaulting second woman; Baltimore Orioles cancel concert

Diplo-16-9-1588264644-0

DJ/producer faces pair of lawsuits following accusations of sexual battery and revenge porn

The Baltimore Orioles announced Friday that a July 24th postgame concert by Diplo has been canceled amid allegations of sexual assault against the DJ/producer.

“The Orioles will not hold the upcoming postgame performance on July 24 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards,” the team tweeted Friday. “Fans who purchased field passes with game tickets to the Diplo concert on July 24 will receive a refund.”

While the Orioles did not specify why the concert was called off, the cancellation came just hours after the Baltimore Sun published a scathing letter to the editors questioning how the team could continue with the postgame performance amid the recent allegations against Diplo, including a pair of sexual assault lawsuits filed against him.

[TW: Sexual Assault]Diplo has been accused of sexual assault after forcing a fan to perform oral sex on him, which she claimed was also filmed. In another separate lawsuit, from a different woman, Diplo is accused of recording a sexual encounter without consent and then later leaking that footage online. The woman also claimed that Diplo — who she alleged did not tell her that he had sexually transmitted infections — gave her chlamydia and HPV as a result of their sexual encounters.

The new BTS song sucks and D'Angelo Wallace agrees with me why.



I'm a fan of BTS. I've enjoyed their music for years. I've watched proudly as they've gotten bigger and bigger in the West, particularly America, because I wanted others to experience their sound and intelligent lyrics.
But "Permission to Dance"? Ain't it. It's EMBARRASSING. It's crap.
And, for the past couple of days since it dropped, I've felt like I'm in crazy town because NO ONE is saying it. I'm not talking about ARMY twitter or social media, I expect that of them. I'm talking about just out in the wilds of reaction Youtube or even media observation writers on different sites, even well known ones.
But then along came D'Angelo Wallace today, and said EVERY SINGLE THING I (and some others on ONTD) was thinking.

He really covered it all:
-The fucking autotune addiction
-The KidzBop feel of tune
-The nastiness of the sound and particularly the crappy lyrics
And so much more!
I like this video because he makes good points and isn't just clickbait hating or being a contrarian merely because BTS is so big right now. He's saying what needs to be said and I'm hoping they get they eventually get the message so they don't do this shit again. Being the biggest group in the world at the moment shouldn't be enough reason to release an objectively shitty song. Though I realize that may be an utterly vain hope. That said, I'm still a fan. I can avoid this crap song and hope for better in the future.

ONTD Original: The Messy History of BTS 2.0

About six weeks ago, I made an ONTD original post about the messy history of BTS. The post honestly ended up generating more discussion than I expected, and my fellow ONTDers DELIVERED in the comments, providing multiple instances that I missed in my post, because, honestly, I don't really follow K-Pop. I've had multiple messages and comments asking for a sequel, so...I guess give the people what they want? Also, let's be honest, that post was not my best work and I can do better.


Without further ado, I present to you: More Reasons BTS Is Messy!
Suga Samples Jim Jones

For those who don't know, Jim Jones is one of the most notorious cult leaders in history. He was the leader of the People's Temple cult, and led a mass murder/suicide of 918 people in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978, shortly after ordering the murder of a US representative. (Look him up on Wikipedia if you want to know more) So, as one would expect, when BTS member Suga released a single which included a sample of a speech given by Jim Jones, people weren't too happy. The sample consisted of the line "... though you are dead, yet you shall live, and he that liveth and believeth shall never die". Following the backlash, the single was taken down and rereleased without the sample. Some BTS fans attempted to defend the usage of the speech, claiming that it was used as a response to critics who had been harsh on BTS over the years. Suga apologized and claimed that he did not realize that it was inappropriate, while Big Hit Entertainment claimed that the sample was added by a producer. However, according to some alleged "informants", the song was heavily inspired by Post Malone's "Jonestown", an interlude featured on Post Malone's album "Beerbongs and Bentleys" in 2018. These informants claimed that Suga was so inspired by that song, that he purposefully included the sample as a reference to the Post Malone song. whatisthetruth.gif

OP EDIT: Several commenters mentioned that it should be said that the majority of people who died in Jonestown were Black. Additionally, it should be said that, following this, ARMY began rewriting history, attempting to portray Jim Jones as some Korean liberation figure, retranslating various documents to paint a false picture. Korean scholars had to get involved.

Additionally, there is video proof that Suga intentionally placed the sample in the song. The YouTube video is in the comments.

Drama Queens episode 3: Backseats + Basketballs, ft Lee Norris

- Mouth was originally supposed to be a sideline character, but became a regular in season 3.

Cannes 2021: Wes Anderson's "The French Dispatch" gets a warm reception.



Wes Anderson, a longtime expatriate denizen of Paris, has made his latest film (and first live action film in seven years) about American journalists reporting abroad in France, and the first reactions and reviews from its Cannes premiere are very positive. Some critics do note that they feel the anthology format of The French Dispatch is less emotionally engaging than they might have hoped (though that's always something people debate with Anderson's films), but basically every review praises the aesthetics, and most reviews are onboard overall.

Regular audiences will have to wait until late October to see it, alas.

Director James Gunn Thinks Superhero Movies Are “Mostly Boring” Right Now


James Gunn is trying his best to not make his own superhero movies “boring.” The Suicide Squad director spoke to SFX Magazine about the upcoming sequel and why he tried to made it different than other superhero films.

“They’re mostly boring to me right now!” Gunn, 54, said. “I loved them at the beginning and there are still people trying to do different things [with them], so it’s not a 100% rule, but a lot of them are boring. So I think it’s about bringing in other elements from different genres.”

“I loved the idea of making a supervillain war caper film,” continues Gunn. “Films like The Dirty Dozen and Where Eagles Dare, those are of different elements from the backdrop of war and the caper heist element, to the sneaking around, the high stakes, the adventure. It gave me a great excuse to be able to create a film a genre I’ve loved since I was a little kid, and do it in a big way and not have to hold back,” the filmmaker added.

Arrest warrant goes out for Kyle Massey


King County, Washington has issued an arrest warrant against That's So Raven star Kyle Massey after he failed to appear at his court arraignment this morning. Massey also missed his initial arraignment on June 28.

Massey was charged last month with immoral communication with a minor, a felony in the state. He is alleged to have sent sexually explicit texts and photos to a 13-year old girl from December 2018 to January 2019. The girl sued Massey in March 2019.

The initial response to the chages from Massey lawyer were that the allegations are extortive and a revenge plot and said his client intends to aggressively defend himself. Whether that means missing court twice is unknown as his lawyer did not respond to a request for comment by the source.
