  1. Pop culture has been a mess this year and if I had to describe it, I would use the word battleground because of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation trial, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at Oscars and Harry Styles being a queer-baiter. Here’s my top picks of 2022 trends worth leaving behind because of tiredness: 1. Sampling Sampling old songs is indeed all fun and games until it becomes redundant. 2. Queer Baiting Y’all can bait me, I Bad Bunny it! 🌈However, I don’t appreciate it when you’re too much in my face and Harry Styles I’m looking at you! 3. Lea Michele Girl you know what? It’s been over a decade since Glee happened, but every single year a cast member is breaking the silence on how Lea Michele was clowning/bullying them on set. Lea Michele is a bad bich but I don’t want to hear about her in 2023 unless she’s starring in a decent movie. 4. Euphoria More Ozark, Less Euphoria! 5. Female Rap Unity There’s no such thing - never was. Let Nicki beef with them without calling her old & bitter! Ok. What about your picks of pop culture moments you don’t want to see in 2023?

  3. Hello everyone! What a jam-packed and absolutely wild weekend it was in entertainment, popular culture and sports. Shall we begin? February 11th marked the 10 year passing of the late Whitney Houston. Erykah Badu releases her multiplatinum debut album “Baduizm” 25 years ago. The album won numerous accolades including a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. The album served as a landmark in the submerging genre of neo-soul and established her as "the first lady and queen of neo-soul”. Kelly Rowland celebrates her 40th birthday looking absolutely stunning. R&B legend Brandy and Hollywood Icon Jennifer Aniston also celebrated their birthday’s this past weekend. Sydney Sweeney, Kim Kardashian and Channing Tatum BREAK the Internet. A pregnant Rihanna is joined by A$AP Rocky at her Fenty Beauty Event in Los Angeles, California. That night, Rihanna confirmed to ET that she will be releasing new music. Rejoice @Blackout2006. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, among many other big names, attend Kanye West’s “JEEN-YUHS” biopic screening premiere party in Hollywood, California. In honor of the Super Bowl LVI, Basketball Legend Shaquille O’Neal hosted his annual event — Shaq’s Fun House — a carnival attraction and open bar which included guest performances by Lil Wayne, Diplo, Zedd and more. An EVENT. And on the other side of Los Angeles, the festivities continued with Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani taking the stage at Day 2 of the Super Bowl Music Fest. Justin Bieber also took the stage during the 'Homecoming Weekend' Super Bowl concert event in West Hollywood. Among other big names that attended were Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kendall Jenner, Chloe Bailey and many more. As the Los Angeles festivities continued with thousands of celebrities and several guest performances, it was reported that rapper Kodak Black was among 4 people shot after a brawl had occurred at an afterparty. As the new day arises, Kanye West took to Instagram and stated hip-hop star Kid Cudi will not be on ‘DONDA 2’ because of his friendship with “you know who.” West previously stated that he wouldn’t perform at Coachella unless Billie Eilish apologized for “dissing” Travis Scott — now saying: “we all speak in Billie language now”. Kid Cudi responds to Kanye West's Instagram post: “Too bad I dont wanna be on ur album u **** dinosaur hahaha 🤣 everyone knows ive been the best thing about ur albums since i met u. Ima pray for u brother. ✌🏾” He then tweets: West then takes to Instagram and calls out Pete Davison among others like Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Machine Gun Kelly, Hillary Clinton and more in a series of now-deleted Instagram posts. [SCREENSHOTS COURTESY OF TWITTER] Anyways… moving on To simpler times. Shall we? February 12th marked the 15th anniversary of “Beautiful Liar” by Beyoncé & Shakira. MAKIN MY WAY DOWNTOWN! Few debut hits have had the broad and lasting impact of “A Thousand Miles”. Vanessa Carlton released her debut single — 20 years ago on February 12, 2002 — and the world would never be the same. Music legends Green Day and Miley Cyrus take the stage at Day 3 of the Super Bowl Music Fest. In West Hollywood, the Super Bowl festivities continued. Hip-hop legend Drake was a star among A-listers at the 'Homecoming' concert event. Drake performed a medley of his hits alongside rap icon Future. The crowd included many entertainers, influencers and athletes such as Mike Tyson, Ciara, Cardi B, Russell Wilson, Lil Wayne, Paul Pierce, Offset, Nicole Scherzinger and more. Other festivities around Hollywood and Los Angeles included performances from G-Eazy, French Montana, Tory Lanez and more at several various nightclubs. As the morning arises, Kanye West once again decided to choose hell. He posted a note on Instagram stating “My account is not hacked”. West then shared some bizarre posts which involved Ariana Grande, Mac Miller, Pete Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly. I’m lighter news, the official trailer for Marvel News’ “Doctor Strange” was released that afternoon. And now! Drumroll please! Sunday, February 13th marked the 56th Annual SUPER BOWL LVI. The game was played by AFC champions, The Cincinnati Bengals versus NFC champions, The Los Angeles Rams — at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, California; the Home Stadium of the Rams, marking the second consecutive and overall Super Bowl to feature a team playing in its home stadium. Rap took over the Super Bowl Halftime balancing celebration and protest amidst the NFL’s history of conservatism. While decades into the genre’s domination into the mainstream, this was the first time in Super Bowl Halftime HISTORY that hip-hop was center stage. The legendary Halftime Show was headlined by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar — honoring both a celebration of hip-hop and its prominence on the West Coast. EVERYBODY STAND THE **** UP FOR ONE OF THE GREATEST HALF TIME SHOWS IN HISTORY. As the game resumed, the Bengals were up 4 by the end of the third quarter. Trailing 20–16 in the fourth, Rams wide receiver Connor Kupp scored a touchdown to retake the lead (23-20) with under two minutes remaining and stopped the Bengals final drive on downs. Kupp was named Super Bowl LVI’s most valuable player. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE RAMS ARE YOUR SUPER BOWL LVI CHAMPIONS!!! The Rams' victory was their second, and first as a Los Angeles-based team, having won Super Bowl XXXIV while based in St. Louis. The Bengals, who finished with a 10–7 record, were seeking their first Super Bowl title following several decades of losing seasons and playoff struggles. They won their first playoff game since 1990, ending the longest drought in the four major North American sports, en route to their third appearance and first since Super Bowl XXIII. Each team finished the regular season as its respective conference's 4-seed, making this the first Super Bowl without a top-3 seed since seeding was introduced in 1975. WOW. A competitive affair, the game had three lead changes and was mostly kept within a one-possession margin. The Rams led 13–10 at halftime, but the Bengals scored 10 unanswered points on their first two drives in the third quarter. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named Super Bowl MVP after finishing the game with eight receptions, 92 yards, and two touchdowns, including three receptions and the game-winning touchdown on the Rams' final drive. Congratulations to the Rams. A few celebrity sightings at Super Bowl LVI: Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and Kelly Rowland Doja Cat, The Weeknd, Ty Dolla Sign and more Niall Horan, Shawn Mendes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez Antonio Brown, Kanye West and his daughter North Devin Booker, Hailey Bieber, Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner Oliva Rodrigo Cardi B, Offset Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie Drake Among others included Charlize Theron, Kevin Hart, The Rock, Matt Damon, Ellen Degeneres, Floyd Mayweather, Keke Palmer, Adam Devine, Sophie Toner, Joe Jonas, Martha Stewart, Tyga, YG, Will Farrell, Ryan Reynolds, Sean Penn, Chris Tucker, Tracy Morgan, Mark Wahlberg, Nelly, 2 Chainz, Steph Curry, Michael Strahan and hundreds more. And finally, to CLOSE this jam-packed weekend full of entertainment, sports, music, film and fun -- Episode 6 of "euphoria" Season 2 premiered on HBO later that evening. Hope you all enjoyed this recap! Thoughts? Concerns? Questions? Lmk in the comments below.
  4. Do you have any unpopular opinions? Please, be respectful I'll start: I think Beyonce, Adele and Taylor are so overrated Lana Del Rey's music deserves way more attention, she's a genius Most of Rihanna's old hits aged badly Ariana Grande used to be a good pop star I didn't like Lady Gaga's acting in A Star Is Born, seemed really fake and forced, I didn't even finish the movie I'd do things w/ Scooter Braun Watched whole Squid Game and I think it's sooo overrated
  5. I found this video from this YouTuber I subscribed to his content is always informative you can tell he cares deeply about Britney. He was the one I wanted to join this site to learned about her story. His journaling is always correct it comes true. He basically a reliable source. I’m sharing this video mostly because I’ll thought it was interesting. Please keep comments to yourself. I need a mod in case it get intense. Please do not send hate to Sloan he just doing his job. Or me either. I have no time for your rubbish.
  6. In honor of Brit’s bday & freedom I wrote a piece for MEDIUM ☺️ It’s my first post so if you like it please support my writing on the website with a clap! I joined BH forum hoping to engage with people and discuss concepts, theories, etc, that are elaborated as more than a twitter-character count... but I have found long posts / replies tend to get ignored. Share your thoughts below, I'd love to hear them! ---- Gimme More: Britney’s Freedom is a Battle with America’s Toxic Celebrity Obsession Forever the Princess of Pop, Britney Spears paved the way for generations of female darlings to come. She pioneered music and fashion trends that were ahead of her time and was deemed the most powerful celebrity on the planet by Forbes at only 21. The soundtrack to every millennial’s life, Britney was our first Miss America (Sorry, not sorry, Taylor). Finally freed from the confines of her abusive and financially exploitive conservatorship, it’s now time America gives Britney her autonomy back. All of us can catalogue moments of our life associated with different eras of Britney, and we as a society must take accountability for our unhealthy consumption of celebrity gossip. Britney’s initial success was in part due to her relatability and charm; however as she grew up, we turned on her for experiencing the mistakes that naturally come when adulting as a public figure. America needs to revaluate its celebrity obsession and especially consider why women are always held to a different standard than men.America lacks a formal institution to gawk at — such as royalty — so we idealize strangers, projecting our shared experience onto people that seem relatable, yet, have achieved more than us. This emboldens a one-sided relationship that can lead to unhealthy worshipping with people that we think we know. The public’s thirst for more is exactly what permitted Britney to become enslaved before our very eyes. For 13 years she maintained a smile while continuing to perform the hits that pigeon-holed her as Britney — the first-name-only ascription of an icon. Britney’s conservatorship gave us just enough more to keep her brand alive, but never allowed Britney herself to grow up. Stay youthful, always be ****, release dance hits, and perform them with the full-out choreography synonymous with the Britney brand — Work, *****, indeed — a song which now has a terrible aftertaste considering the allegations Britney publicly spoke about on June 23. Surprisingly showcased to the world under the restraints of the hushed-hushed topic of the conservatorship, the Britney media narrative over the years focused on her multiple work projects, yet we heard very little from her. In hindsight, it’s alarming the pressure put upon Britney to remain complacent for so many years while delivering financial success for the very people that stripped her of her freedom. She’s said she is angry — and rightfully so! With the growing noise of the #FreeBritney movement, the public began to understand that Britney was not saved in 2008 by a permanent conservatorship — she was jailed. A carefully crafted PR narrative driven by her camp egregiously enabled a patriarchal society and negligent court system. Together this sustained an arrangement that was shockingly described to the court as a “hybrid-business model” — as if the glaring hypocrisy of a highly functioning stage performer being likened to a senile hospice patient wasn’t ridiculous enough! Slowly, the cracks in this ongoing racketeering arrangement began to show. Labeled a conspiracy theory in the beginning by her father, the #FreeBritney movement brought credibility and national reform to a movement that needed a larger voice: probate reform. Only Britney Spears changing history, once again! It’s worth highlighting that Britney’s prime was during the last years of pop mono-culture, the brief moment in time before the boom of the internet and streaming era, when MTV’s TRL still had the power to shut down Times Square. Nowadays, we are inundated with endless videos of beautiful bodies and slick choreography, but Britney was the first young artist to master this production and bring it to the masses. Her live performances were unmatched, solidifying her as a true pop icon that constantly outdid herself. Britney provided gay men the space to accept themselves when society was more exclusive rather than inclusive. She was coined the pop star that “all girls wanted to be and all boys want to be with” but Britney really should have been likened to an older sister, a role model for how to be fearless(not virginal, as her brand teased and the media thirsted after) — Britneyhelped usher in our confidence to unapologetically face the world. As Britney began to navigate her adult life, the public criticized her personal life — as if, it too, were a stage performance. Women, in particular, live in a 24/7 cycle of celebrity engagement and are covered far more than their male colleagues. As a culture, we didn’t allow Britney the yin and yang necessary for any person to survive. We expected constant perfection, detaching her from her own humanity and viewing her only as a product, which later her team capitalized on. Our culture creates demigods out of celebrities. The voyeurism that’s normalized around famous people is not healthy to the human psyche, nor sustainable for a lifetime. Social media has finally allowed celebrities to direct their own narrative, taking away much of the power that fueled the tabloid culture that contributed to Britney’s rights being taken away. But so did we... Just because we weren’t the ones on the ground doesn’t absolve our consumption of the product. That’s why the #FreeBritney movement became a unification across all of pop culture — it was about the fans and the world fighting for the freedom of a woman who had helped free them. Stronger together! In the early oughts the general public’s reaction to the pitfalls of celebrity was “they asked for it” — meaning, stars understood the karmic contract that was signed by default when pursuing a career in entertainment; Deserving of the scrutiny that comes along with the very idolization that secures their lifestyle. Truthfully, Britney explicitly desired the opposite. During interviews for her first album, Britney candidly spoke about her ideal to have enough money to buy a large home to raise a family in. We didn’t listen to her. The media projected onto Britney what we wanted her to be, holding her authenticity hostage. The fans wanted more songs, her label needed more hits, the media was hungry for more stories, and Team Britney wanted as many commission opportunities as possible. Gimme More indeed. Unfortunately, this is one of many times that Britney wasn’t listened to. Lucky was an eerie prediction, Overprotected warned us, she kindly requested empathy in Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman, and insisted with her cover of My Prerogative to be left alone. More shockingly relevant is that the court system didn’t listen to her when she voiced the same abuses in 2019 that she publicly spoke about in 2021. We finally heard you Britney. In order to continue #FREEDBRITNEY we must release all expectations of the Britney we think we know and graciously support her directing her life and career according to her own authority. Britney spent her youth gifting the world with entertainment and providing a safe space for fans at a time when society was more exclusive rather than inclusive. Now, America must return the favor by supporting Britney’s next chapter without judgement, as she did for us. In 2007, “Leave Britney alone!” was deemed a joke by the media, but hopefully this time Chris Crocker’s outcry will resonate. Happy Birthday and congratulations to Britney Spears! Let us all please support her with her choices now — whether she wants to retire indefinitely, or focus on raising a family before performing on stage again …One more time. PS — part of continuing to #FreeBritney means please do not give TMZ paparazzi photos any click$!
  7. DC Comics has officially revealed that current Robin, Tim Drake, is Bi. I know this is typically a music forum, but most of us are LGBTQIA+ and superheroes/ comics are definitely a part of pop culture. This news is particularly exciting for me as Robin has always been one of my favorite DC superheroes (But D.ick Grayson is definitely my favorite). I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I daydreamed of Robin coming to save my from my bleak existence as an adolescent 😂 I think this is really great representation, especially for the younger generation that could use a superhero role model to look up to and find themselves in. I can’t stress enough though- if *only* it was Grayson. Le Sigh. 😓
  8. Interesting video about file-sharing in the late 90s, early 2000s When I was in college, I remember students getting letters for downloading Rihanna's "Disturbia" on campus - they had to sign a contract stating they wouldn't download on school servers anymore. Lol
  9. Here are mine to start off with: 1. (Ultra-iconic) Lindsay telling paparazzi that she was hit by Paris with a drink earlier that night then later was es***ted to Paris' car by Paris' manager at the time ( what's the tea Paris? why did you tell people Lindsay jumped into your car when she was es***ted by your manager to your car to cover up the story earlier? ) 2. Mariah Carey telling her background singers to stop singing her part on Good Morning America: 3. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's fake tv wedding after they secretly got eloped in Mexico: 4. Ashlee Simpson getting booed at the Orange Bowl: ( not the guy yelling ''YOU SUCKK'' at the end ) 5. Lindsay Lohan's lip sync fail on Good morning america: ( Girl was too focused on giving us the energy that she forgot to lip sync her part ) Show me yours! I can't wait to read and discuss them all
