Starcrawler’s Arrow de Wilde says the Growlers filmed male stripper sexually assaulting her
In the latest incident to come out of Burger Records’ collapse over sexual assault allegations, Arrow de Wilde, the lead singer of the L.A. indie rock band Starcrawler, said that she was sexually assaulted by a male stripper hired by the singer of the band the Growlers while they were on tour together in Australia.
In a July 30 Instagram post, De Wilde described a January incident in Melbourne that took place after a show in a locked backstage area, where a male stripper dressed as a paramedic held her down against her will. The stripper, hired by Growlers singer Brooks Nielsen, performed his routine despite her protestations, while the band filmed it.
I WANNA APOLOGIZE TO MY WIFE, KIM K
... 'Please Forgive Me'
A sign of hope ... Kanye West has just apologized to Kim Kardashian for a flurry of public jabs ... asking for her forgiveness.
Ye had been giving Kim the cold shoulder as she tried to reach out to him to get him the help he needed -- this after he lapsed again into a serious bipolar episode, hurling a barrage of disparaging tweets that took aim at her, her mom, Kris Jenner, and others in the family. He even said he'd been trying to divorce her for a while now.
Ye said a lot, but it would seem the most hurtful comment was last Sunday in South Carolina, when he said he wanted Kim to get an abortion but she would not and had the baby anyway. There were other things too -- allegations of cheating, etc., but it sure seems the abortion talk was the most hurtful, and one thing we know ... Kim's protective of her kids.

Hollywood's identity crisis: Actors, writers and producers warn of 'reverse racism' in the film industry which has created a 'toxic' climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man
A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.
A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as 'more toxic than Chernobyl', with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.
The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white.
'I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,' Peele said. 'Not that I don't like white dudes. But I've seen that movie before.'

Country Music Can No Longer Hide Its Problems
Perhaps such cravings for the regular ol’ times explain why country music, replete with visions of barbecues and backwoods, has thrived during our stay-indoors spring and summer. Ever since America’s shutdown began, almost all styles of music have lost streaming listenership. Country’s popularity, on the other hand, has risen: The genre has averaged 11.1 percent more plays since mid-March. There are multiple theories for why this is, but what seems true in any case is that country’s love for a feeling of normalcy is alluring. As a slew of recent scandals and scuffles have demonstrated, however, not even Nashville can maintain the status quo anymore.
While pop tends to envision one big night where you transcend your boring condition, and hip-hop often touts material success turning an ordinary life into an extraordinary one, country fetishizes the day-after-day realities of homes, highways, and beer halls. There are exceptions, but typically it’s a genre in which work and family and place all are held up as things that must be defended. You can hear the fierce attachment to the familiar, for example, in the new single “More Than My Hometown,” from the hitmaker Morgan Wallen. The Tennessee singer describes a storybook romance with some woman, but when she wants to move to the city, he bids her farewell, explaining, “I can't love you more than my hometown.”

It’s time to cancel ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’ Here’s what should replace it
Scholars disagree about the meaning of this couplet. Some read the words as a reference to escaped slaves fighting alongside the British, who promised to grant freedom to Black soldiers in exchange for their service. Historian Jason Johnson has called “The Star-Spangled Banner” “a diss track to Black people who had the audacity to fight for their freedom.” Marc Ferris, the author of “Star-Spangled Banner: The Unlikely Story of America’s National Anthem,” has written that Key was likely using the term “slave” more loosely, to describe “all of the monarch’s loyal subjects, including British troops — as contrasted with free patriot Americans.” Others argue that this context is academic: The only part of the poem that anyone knows, that anyone ever sings, is the first stanza, the one that begins “O say, can you see.”
But there are also arguments against “The Star-Spangled Banner” on aesthetic grounds, criticisms that have dogged the anthem for decades. For one thing, it’s not an especially American song. Its lyrics are ornate and Anglophile, with syntax that frustrates the efforts of normal human Americans to follow along — to deduce who or what, exactly, is gleaming and streaming.
0:12 / 3:08 "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" Wins Original Song: 2006 Oscars
"You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin')
When he tryin' to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin')
For the Cadillac's and gas money spent (you ain't knowin')
Because a whole lot of bitches talkin' shit (you ain't knowin')
Will have a whole lot of bitches talkin' shit (you ain't knowin')
In my eyes I done seen some crazy thangs in the streets
Gotta couple hoes workin' on the changes for me
But I gotta keep my game tight like Kobe on game night
Like takin' from a ho don't know no better,
I know that ain't right
Done seen people killed, done seen people deal
Done seen people live in poverty with no meals
It's fucked up where I live, but that's just how it is
It might be new to you, but it's been like this for years." 14-Jul-2020
There’s a Divide in Even the Closest Interracial Friendships Including ours.
It was one of those perfect California nights, not too cold or too hot. Ann’s backyard was strung with lights and punctuated with the cheerful buzz of conversation as people milled around with glasses of rosé in hand. She had offered up her patio as the venue for a friend’s birthday party. And—even better—Aminatou happened to be in town. She was in Los Angeles for a work trip and had been looking forward to attending the backyard soiree because she knew and liked the birthday girl and many of the other guests.
When she showed up, the party was already in full swing. Aminatou found that the snacks were delicious and the mood lovely. But what should have been a fun night celebrating and catching up with friends turned sour when Aminatou noticed that she was the only Black person milling around Ann’s back patio.

Alice Cooper says racist police in America need to be “weeded out”
Discussing the violent protests of the 1960s and civil rights marches, Cooper said: “Well, isn’t it amazing that that was 50, 60 years ago, or something like that, and we’re still dealing with the same problem?
“To be honest with you, I know a lot of cops,” he added. “I don’t know one racist cop. But I guarantee you that five percent of the police force in every city have got a racial problem. And those are the guys that get all the headlines, because they do all the stupid things.”
Cooper continued: “I think we have to look at that like almost in everything. Five percent of the Muslim population — maybe five percent — back ISIS.
“The rest of ’em are just like we are. If you put a Muslim family with an American family, they’d have a barbecue and they wouldn’t be even talking about politics, but there’s always that five percent that will upset the entire world.
Jarvis Cocker Says Fame Is Kind of Like Pornography
Jarvis Cocker gave quite the graphic analogy in a new interview. During a chat with The Sunday Times, the Pulp frontman compared fame to pornography. And honestly, it makes perfect sense.
“It was a very strange time for me because I’d achieved my lifetime’s ambition and then found that it didn’t satisfy me,” he said when reflecting on the celebrity that followed Pulp’s 1995 hit “Common People.”

HGTV’s Erin Napier Is ‘Turning Off’ Instagram Comments Until 2021 After Calling Out Trolls
Erin Napier knows social media can be a dark place — and now she’s taking matters into her own hands and changing the way people can interact with her posts.
The Home Town star, 34, previously opened up about Instagram bullies having taken an emotional toll on her, and on Thursday morning she announced on that platform that she’s taking significant steps towards taming those trolls by turning off comments on her posts until 2021.
“Turning off comments till 2021 feels like a good move,” she captioned a photo of her and her husband (and HGTV co-star), Ben, 37. “It’s getting harder to shoulder every opinion from every direction at all times about everything when everyone is freaking out constantly. There’s too much noise.”
She used an analogy to explain how social media can be deceiving, and explained that commenters often react without seeing the full picture.
