It can’t be bullying
even more insidious than you could imagine
The magical character of my childhood died a long time ago and ‘Leaving Neverland’ is the rightful nail on the coffin
Whatever “dragon energy” is I’m almost sure it’s the only common ground Kanye and Trump have
Young middle class girls
‘I called [the guy] a few choice words’
‘he tried to push his views down the public’s throats’
‘The FACTS are simply jaw dropping.’
Should art be political, always political?
‘Donald Trump is a friend of mine, and he works very hard’
I think about moving home to Denmark
Who travels with $10 million in jewelry without any security?
‘you’re selling a $700 leather jacket with my bands name on it and you have no permission’
People were outraged
‘their abuse cannot be the responsibility of every single person they cross paths with professionally’
alarmingly similar to Hilter’s pseudoscience of eugenics
Could at least Henry Rollins comment on this in his weekly column?
‘The defamation/lies are just too much and it has to stop’
‘Old Man Trump knows/Just how much/Racial Hate/he stirred up/In the bloodpot of human hearts’
‘We consider that there is a breach of copyright and we are deciding what to do next.’
‘We are dumbfounded and perplexed at this rather silly decision. Perhaps something to do with the fact that it’s the Rolling Stones and controversy still seems to follow them everywhere,’ declared a spokesperson for the Rolling Stones.
‘In a conversation with the band’s management, City Paper was told that these types of contracts are “standard” and they “protect the band.” But that’s not even close to being true. The Rolling Stones, to name one huge act, aren’t demanding newspapers sign over their pictures and the Stones are in the middle of selling out half of the stadiums in North America.’
‘You’ve got more attention on that Saturday night set from Kanye than maybe anything else. Who knows what will happen? He could walk out there and have 100,000 people bottle him on stage or he could walk out there and show the world that nothing else matters except for that moment. And I’m sure that is what he will do.’
After noting the strange grading on ‘Soaked in Bleach’ IMDb page (probably demonstrating a manipulation of the data), after knowing about Courtney Love’s direct threats to the theaters screening SIB, I would not be surprised if people were also messing up with these petitions. However, since the previous ones have never lead anywhere, I wonder what they are afraid about?
Courtney Love was not the only one sending cease or desist letters this week, Deadmau5 has done the exact same thing! He is targeting ‘Deadmouse: the Musical’, which is described as a ‘comedy about a mouse who aspires to be a house DJ but is discriminated against for being a mouse’
Anyway, the independent theater hasn’t denied it, it has even tweeted the following a few days ago: ‘Regarding Soaked in Bleach. the engagement was cancelled, Join us for one of the many great #indiefilms we regularly present in #Hollywood’.
‘In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage and difference. The Sex Pistols challenged convention and the established ways of thinking – just as we are doing today in our quest to shake up UK banking.’… it was ‘time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket,’
I had told him this before and I basically reiterated, “I think that what you should do is give her everything, and run as if your very life depends on it. Sign everything over to her from this moment and just be gone. And if you need money, just go out and do a fucking solo tour, play acoustic guitar, you’ll be fine.” He felt like he was trapped. He was embarrassed by her. He wanted to divorce her. He wanted to get out of it. But he was too much of a mess to get out of it.’
‘This is not at all a stepping back — this is a reevaluation of the model of going from one location to two to three,’ told Budweiser VP of marketing Brian Perkins to Billboard. ‘We’re a very ambitious brand, and we have a very ambitious partner in Jay Z, who also dreams big. And we always want to do big, bold things with music under the moniker of Budweiser Made In America.’
‘Then dig your shorty out cuz I geeked her up on molly/Have her eating dick, no need for seasoning/If seven dudes are in the room then she’s pleasing them/Like a trooper. Hit her in the pooper. Throw her in the shower/Then I take her out to Lupa I’m kinky, I’ll hit it even if it’s stinky/Put em in the shower, make the pussy brand new Ran through/Give ’em money what I can’t do Stuff her lunchbox & burn her with the candle.’
‘Your post was reported for violating Facebook’s Community Standards on nudity’? Of course it is totally false, Tom Grant has never posted any nude pictures, and he is a very ethical guy who has even deleted comments, if they were too accusatory against Courtney Love or anybody else.
The woulda’s and coulda’s all day are going bye bye,’… she deleted the tweet afterward of course. The blocked fans couldn’t believe it and tweeted ‘i can’t believe the person i idolize has blocked me. after me paying vip for the pinkprint tour and everything. Nicki Minaj blocked me… because i told her i can’t afford tidal and i asked her to put the videos on Vevo.’
Despite what his label pretends, Jack White has declared music sacred because he is a pompous royalty pissed off that the system allows kids to get his music for free. He is angry that Tidal is going to sink, because why would anyone pick Tidal over Spotify or YouTube when you can use these two for free?
Taylor Swift borrowed all the latex outfits, she and her friends are wearing in the clip, from a Los Angeles erotic boutique. Shawn Gentry, director of operations for The Stockroom, said that the shop will make a ‘full run’ of the outfits worn by Swift and her friends.
Denise and Chloe are two ferocious young women, they both have an extraordinary presence on stage, bold and fearless, but do they really need to admire someone like Love to show they are badass? Is it now cool to have love for Love? Love is a lot of thing but a role model she isn’t!
‘YES, BUT THERE WAS ONE REASON FOR THIS THAT I CAN’T TALK ABOUT. I AM VERY PISSED BY THIS, SINCE HE ADAPTED MY WORK ONLY UNDER ONE CONDITION: THAT HE WOULD HELP MY INSTITUTE. WHICH HE DIDN’T.
‘If Kurt were still alive, he would be so over Courtney’, she says at one point. There has been a lot of speculation about an eventual divorce, and Alice says she doesn’t know exactly but ‘they had broken up, sort of, he was angry at her, at the way she was behaving’.
‘And we pay a fortune in tax. Just so people know, we pay a fortune in tax; and we’re happy to pay a fortune in tax, people should. But that doesn’t mean, because you’re good at philanthropy and because I’m an activist, people think you should be stupid in business and I don’t run with that.’
Cobain’s death was ruled a suicide by the Seattle Police Department shortly after his body was found, but 21 years later, suspicions and theories around the events leading to his death have never been more alive, and a long series of inconsistencies, oddities and plain weirdness (including taped phone conversations with Courtney Love) have let Tom Grant to continue his investigation about the case till this day
‘It is not inconceivable that there are similarities between the two songs. It’s also not inconceivable that there may be vaguely legs in something,’ he explained. ‘It’s also not inconceivable that when they came out they were quite open in interviews that they liked a lot of Australian bands.’
‘No one ever questions the disorder behind her tarantula LA glamour — sociopathy, narcissism — because it’s good rock and roll, good entertainment! I have a low tolerance for manipulative, egomaniacal behavior, and usually have to remind myself that the person might be mentally ill.’
Not only Tyler is re-appropriating the white power symbol, but he has put a rainbow twist on it to make it more… gay. He left a long explanation on his Tumblr under the picture of him holding hands with a white guy and wearing the new shirt
Prior to anyone seeing this film, the ‘Holocaust deniers,’ as I like to refer to them, started writing conspiracy theories about my movie,’ he said. ‘Now this is before anyone’s seen a frame
‘I feel enormously privileged to have been born in 1943 and not 1983,’ said Waters. ‘To have been around when there was a music business and the takeover by Silicon Valley hadn’t happened, and in consequence, you could still make a living writing and recording songs and playing them to people.’
‘My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state – it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song.’ And this moving story really inspired Kanye, who said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ Macca sat at the piano and they wrote ‘Only One’.
I would say it’s refreshing to see someone expressing his own idea, and he is right about the consensus around Mr. West! Look, it’s not possible to please everyone, although nobody is saying anything negative about him! I don’t buy a minute that everyone thinks he is this amazing genius, there must be some artists who find him not that great, right?
We wouldn’t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don’t want to be tribal. I think smaller bands should get paid more for it, too. Bigger bands have other ways of making money, so I don’t think you can complain. A band of our size shouldn’t be complaining. And when they say it’s artist-owned, it’s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.’
‘My parents were many things, but homophobic they were not. In fact, they were blazing liberals. They were caught in a bewildering web of guilt, fear, and poor psychiatric care. Did they make a mistake in not challenging the doctor’s recommendation for ECT? Absolutely.
‘I found his actual suicide letter, which was unexpected. I just opened up this heart shaped box and there it was. And I was like ‘Based on everything I’ve witnessed, this makes no sense.’ Kurt didn’t have a problem with quitting music; he talked about it openly. If he wanted to stop performing, he would just stop. Nothing was leading up to that suicide letter.’
