Bachata Group Aventura Is Outselling Post Malone in U.S. Ticket Sales
Aventura’s reunion tour is doing very well in the U.S., further proving that the influence of Latin music in America is stronger than ever. The Romeo Santos-fronted group, which experienced stratospheric success in the early 2000s with the global bachata hit “Obsesión,” is now back on the road for the first time in 10 years.
The group just debuted at Number Three on Pollstar’s LIVE75 Chart — a list that ranks worldwide active tours by the average tickets sold — for the week of March 2nd. Based on six sold-out shows in markets that include Chicago and Houston, the band is raking in an average of $1.84 million per gig. Based on five shows, the average gross is higher than modern superstar Post Malone’s current number of $1.74 million. The only tour that’s currently pulling in a greater per-show gross, according to Pollstar’s chart figures, belongs to rock legacy band the Eagles.
Taylor Swift Takes Aim at Scooter Braun, Leo DiCaprio, and Kanye West in ‘The Man’ Music Video
With her latest music video for fan-favorite Lover track “The Man,” Taylor Swift takes aim at all of the men she has beef with by donning (very convincing) drag and reenacting as many sexist double standards as she could fit in four minutes and 14 seconds. And trust us when we say that there are a lot.

Yungblud: ‘I tried everything, in terms of sexuality’
Singer-songwriter Yungblud has opened up about his sexuality again saying he ‘tried everything’ after he ran away from home aged 15.
The singer from Doncaster, northern England, also says thugs threatened to cut his head off in Russia, calling him a ‘faggot’.
And he addresses the break-up of his relationship with American singer-songwriter Halsey.
‘I tried everything. In terms of sexuality, in terms of drugs, I liberated myself, rather dangerously to be honest — recklessly. I wanted to figure myself out so bad I didn’t care. I always say to young people, it was a distraction.’
In the past, Yungblud has said he is ‘very fluid’ in his sexuality and that it depends on ‘connection’ with someone.
He says he is ‘more straight’. But he has previously said: ‘[If] I walked down the street and met a fucking bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know.’

Turns Out Prince Was a Gay-Bashing Homophobe
“When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’”

Misogyny in rap music
Mainstream hip hop music authenticates homophobia and sexism in order to celebrate images of violence. Rappers create explicit, violent lyrics against women to assert dominance over them and prove their authenticity as gangsters. Public speculation suggests that rappers fear being considered "soft" and "fake"; therefore, rappers associate themselves with hypermasculine self-portrayals and hostile representations of women. The willingness to socially oppress women becomes a way for hip hop/rap artists to assert their masculinity. Meanwhile, male artists battle constantly with W.E.B. Du Bois' idea of double consciousness.
