Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis learn to ride ponies
       
Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, who is three next month, have been following in Her Majesty's footsteps and have become avid riders, according to The Times. Pictured: Prince William with the late Diana at HighgroveIt is believed the monarch has taken special interest in the progress of her great-grandchildren and their parents are also 'keen' for them to learn to ride and help with grooming the ponies. This evoked memories of Prince William learning to ride as a child, after being given a Shetland called Smokey when he was aged four. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be keen for their son to continue learning how to ride. Prince William is said to be 'thrilled' that his children are embracing the hobby, after he was taught how to ride as a child by the Prince of Wales and the late Diana at Highgrove.
Bowen Yang on 'SNL': 'Fuel up, do more' to fight racism against Asian Americans
       
Following a recent spate of violence against Asian Americans, "Saturday Night Live" comedian Bowen Yang made a call to action during a segment on this week's "Weekend Update." The bit opened with Colin Jost introducing him as an "Asian cast member" of the show, to which Yang responded: "Is that my official title?" More: Maya Rudolph brings her Beyoncé impression back to 'SNL' to sample hot wingsSounding aghast, Yang continued: "If someone's personality is 'punch an Asian grandma,' it's not a dialogue. I have an Asian grandma. Citing a Mandarin cheer that means "fuel up," Yang said: "I don't know what's helpful to say to everyone, but that's what I say to myself.

Former 'Saturday Night Live' Cast Members Gather In Eerie Homage To 'The Shining'
       
Horror met comedy in a strangely affecting sketch with former cast member Maya Rudolph reminiscing with ghosts of “Saturday Night Live’s” past on a set staged to look like the hotel in “The Shining.”Former cast member Tina Fey played fictional early “SNL” writer Gloria Zellwig. “I was one of the first to have the idea that maybe the women could talk,” Fey told Rudolph. Fey explained that her character died of “perm cancer” (so “worth it,” she noted), and that she was now a ghost. But when Rudolph felt the face of returning cast member Rachel Dratch (who appeared to be “The Shining’s” woman in a bathtub), she got a poke in the eye because Dratch wasn’t a ghost. “SNL” veteran Kristen Wiig played both creepy twins from “The Shining.” Kenan Thompson rounded out the crew as Scatman Crothers, and Alex Moffat played the oily barkeep.
Visual arts | Exhibit at the Riffe Gallery a virtual presentation of artists' resourcefulness
       
Nancy GilsonSpecial to The Columbus DispatchOne of the best current virtual art exhibits demonstrates not only the resourcefulness of artists during pandemic times, it also celebrates the role of artists in building and fostering human togetherness. Happily, that virtual incarnation is strong and includes images of the full exhibit enhanced by information about the artists and their work. Indeed, the artists in this exhibit go well beyond working solo in their own studios. They teach, they operate galleries and they create community projects and spaces for other artists to work in. A variety of virtual events surrounding the exhibit also are scheduled.

Tom and Jerry review – wearisome live action adaptation
       
The long-running feud between cat and smart-aleck mouse gets a new platform in this feature-length adaptation of the Hanna Barbera cartoon. The backdrop is a swanky Manhattan hotel, which is set to host the wedding of the year. The approach, a marriage of cluttered live action with madcap 2D animation, owes an obvious debt to Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but has more in common with the wearisome and unfunny Garfield: The Movie. Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Kayla, an opportunist who cons her way into a job using a stolen résumé. It’s astute casting – Moretz’s habitually overblown acting style seems slightly less jarring when juxtaposed with rampaging cartoon elephants.

Lil Nas X Has Precisely Zero Tolerance For The Homophobic Backlash To His Epic “Montero” Video
       
As music videos go, it hardly gets more seismic than Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. It sees Lil Nas reinterpret Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam” in his own magnificent style. Naturally, certain sections of the internet (namely, the ones still trying to get over “WAP”) had some thoughts on this, but Lil Nas is having none of the homophobic backlash. In response to claims that his video is part of a “system” intended to corrupt American youth, the Georgia native responded on Twitter: “There was no system involved. The agenda to make people stay the fuck out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be.
June Shannon Reveals Health Diagnosis, Says She Could "Die Within 6 Months"
       
The reality star opened up about her ongoing health condition during a scene with her sister, Jo “Doe Doe” Shannon, on the March 26 episode of WeTV’s Mama June: From Not to Hot. “I’ve seen the walker thing in some of your video thingies,” Doe Doe said to June, bringing up her very public substance abuse issue and asking:“So is it because of the drugs?”This would make some sense, wouldn't it? Shannon has said she spent $1 million on drugs and blew off her children for many months as a result of this addiction. “I am to a point that I’m a stage 3,” June told Doe Doe. As the episode aired, in fact, June took to Twitter to share additional details about her health status.

Yinka Shonibare: ‘You don’t want the next generation to be full of hate'
       
The British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare makes work – often in sculpture, painting and tapestry – that looks unflinchingly at race, class and colonialism. You don’t actually realise the importance of those things until they get taken away suddenly. But I didn’t know that he had a huge collection of African art. But ironically, of course, Picasso is far better known for African art than the Africans themselves. I don’t think it’s actually changed a lot.
In troubled Sahel, memories of a cinematic golden age
       
He shot around 140 films over his long career, including many in West Africa and particularly the Sahel state of Niger. "He is the grandfather of cinema in Niger," said Moussa Hamidou, the country's first sound producer, who worked on all of Rouch's films. Governments across the Sahel are more focused on combatting the brutal jihadist insurgency, which first emerged in 2012, than cultural pursuits. Rouch responded that he was "trapped between two colliding worlds", referring to his native France, and the Sahel countries it colonised. None said they had seen Rouch's film before either, a sign of his dwindling cachet.

Unreleased Woody Allen CBS Sunday Morning Interview to Stream on Paramount+
       
Photo: Gari Garaialde/Getty ImagesThis morning, almost two weeks after HBO concluded its four-part docusieres Allen v. Farrow, CBS Sunday Morning announced that they will air their own special on “the career and controversy surrounded filmmaker Woody Allen,” featuring a sit-down interview with the director himself, on Paramount+ Sunday, March 28. According to the network’s press release, Sunday’s CBS Sunday Morning: The Woody Allen Interview, anchored by Lee Cowan, will be comprised of an unaired Woody Allen interview from 2020, a 2018 CBS This Morning interview with Dylan Farrow, and a report from Erin Moriarty on “controversial artists and their art.” Cowan reportedly sat down with Allen last July to discuss the director’s memoir Apropos of Nothing, which was published on March 23 of last year. The interview, CBS notes, is “the filmmaker’s first in-depth television interview in nearly three decades.”In her 2018 interview with Gayle King, Farrow reiterated her claim that Allen molested her in 1992 and denied being coached by mother Mia Farrow, Allen’s then-girlfriend. And how will CBS Sunday Morning tie these threads together? Apparently, Moriarty will take a deep dive into “the challenges the public faces when respected artists are alleged — or discovered — to have acted in a morally questionable manner.” Allen has repeatedly denied abusing Farrow, most recently calling HBO’s Allen v. Farrow a “shoddy hit piece” in a joint press release with his wife, Soon-Yi Previn.

$1M Worth of Beyoncé’s Property Stolen Out of Storage Units
       
Photo: Robert Gauthier/Los Angeles Times via Getty ImagesBefore you ask: yes, the gowns were affected. According to TMZ, storage units rented by Beyoncé’s production company Parkwood Entertainment were reportedly burglarized twice earlier in March, with the culprits making off with more than a million dollar’s worth of the singer’s belongings, including “expensive handbags and dresses.” Per TMZ, “the missing items from the first heist all belong to Queen Bey.”Following the initial theft, which reportedly targeted three storage units, three more units in the same storage facility were broken into less than a week later, allegedly by the same people. Among the second haul was “handbags, kids toys, and photos belonging to one of Beyoncé’s stylists.” According to TMZ, there have been no arrests in the crime, but if Beyoncé’s entire Black Is King wardrobe shows up on TheRealReal, that’s going to be a huge tip-off.

So, good luck to you, Chirpy, Little Dee Dee, and Calista Vagina. Hopefully Lorne has taught you an important lesson about high school by assigning you a season of Saturday Night Live for your Saturday detention.

Tina Turner HBO doc explores trauma of abuse, makes a case for her Rock Hall induction this year
       
With her signature sequins, voluminous hair and throaty growl, Tina Turner became an unlikely rock icon at age 44 when she released "Private Dancer," her 1984 solo breakthrough. Featuring hits "What's Love Got to Do With It" and "I Can't Stand the Rain," the exhilarating album was a stark departure from her work in the '60s and '70s as one half of Ike and Tina Turner, her R&B duo with ex-husband/music partner Ike Turner. Wanting to be sensitive to her trauma, the directors relied heavily on archival footage and audio of Tina discussing Ike, who died in 2007. And that obviously became the story of Tina Turner." She's happy, she's content – she's not somebody who needs to be a star and have attention."

"This week kinda felt like Biden on those stairs," Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost joked about recent events while showing a photo of Biden tripping on the stairs at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland prior to a flight to Atlanta. Jost also applauded Biden about "how well he breakdanced," as a repeating video of the fall played to 1990s song "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." Fellow co-host Michael Che gave a "shoutout to Fixodent" after noting Biden's news conference lasted more than an hour. — SNL's Michael CheThe show also repeatedly joked about the "cheat sheets" Biden was seen using during his appearance before reporters, first with a graphic on Weekend Update that showed a notecard that said "You=Joe Biden."

Yang first dinged co-anchor Colin Jost for introducing him as the program’s “Asian American cast member.”Jost responded: “That’s how you told me to introduce you.”“I set your ass up. “Things for Asians in this country have been bleak for the past two weeks — and all the weeks before that since forever,” he noted.

Former political candidate inserts himself into the case of a missing girl and ends up a murder suspect
       
Jonelle Matthews, right, was one of the first missing children featured on milk cartons across the country. It may or may not have something to do with the Jonelle Matthews case. It charged that "he took Jonelle Matthews from her family home …" and "shot Jonelle Matthews during the course of the kidnapping." But the indictment suggests that he might have, because he "demonstrated intimate familiarity with the neighborhood where Jonelle Matthews lived." Mayor John Gates: I think they did a stellar job, and I commend our district attorney for prosecuting the case.
Why the buyer of Jeffrey Epstein's mansion might get it spiritually cleansed
       
But former Goldman Sachs executive Michael Daffey and his wife Blake have gone ahead and bought Jeffrey Epstein's infamous townhouse - for a cool $51 million. Especially during the pandemic which has hit the New York property market. The couple see the mansion “as a place with a lot of potential, once it undergoes a physical and spiritual transformation,” says a spokesman for the couple. ‘Spiritual’ is the key word here: surely nothing other than a full cleanse of the apartment’s negative energy could make it habitable. Sondra Shaye, a healer who specialises in ‘space clearing’ New York apartments says this isn’t impossible, even for homes with the darkest pasts.
Famous Schitt's Creek Rosebud Motel goes on the market for $1.6 million just outside of Toronto
       
The famed motel where the show Schitt's Creek was set could be yours for $1.6 million. Known as the Rosebud Motel, the real building is known at the Hockley Motel and it situated in Mono, Ontario, about 50 miles northwest of downtown Toronto. Tipping said he 'would love to see the property's next owner turn it into a Schitt's Creek-themed motel as a tribute to the show.' Displaced from their mansion, the family is forced to move to the only asset the IRS didn't seize, a small town named Schitt's Creek. Fans of the show, and potential buyers should be aware, however, that the interior motel scene on Schitt's Creek do not resemble those found at the Hockley Motel.

"It's the only validation that matters, is Black people's validation, so I really appreciate NAACP for honoring us," she continued. Later in the evening, Ross shared Rae's speech on her Instagram, congratulating her friend on her win.
Regina King's Dramatic Gown at the NAACP Image Awards Is Even Better From the Back
       
Though we have yet to get another glimpse of Regina King's iconic dog Cornbread since the Golden Globes last month, the actress and director stole the show all on her own at the 2021 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday night. Regina, who's nominated for entertainer of the year and outstanding director for her directorial debut in One Night in Miami, brought on the drama in a custom Oscar de la Renta gown in a gorgeous copper color. While the taffeta dress was undoubtedly a beaut from the front — can we talk about that amazing statement train? — the giant bow in the back wins the (virtual) red carpet for us.

My Ribs Hurt From Laughing Over Maya Rudolph as Beyoncé in SNL's Hot Ones Skit
       
The Hot Ones series on YouTube brings in plenty of celebrity guests, but there's always been one A-lister who seems out of reach: Beyoncé. We're one step closer to knowing what an interview (powered by hot chicken wings) would be like with Queen Bey thanks to a recent Saturday Night Live skit. Decked out in a near-perfect replica of Beyoncé's leather Grammys outfit, SNL host Maya Rudolph brought back her iconic impression for March 27's show. She approaches the Hot Ones challenge with gusto — a little too much, it turns out. This skit is a great reminder of why we'll probably never see the real life Beyoncé face "hot questions and even hotter wings," but at least we'll always have Rudolph.

The varied medley of appearances felt just right for Rudolph, an SNL alum whose humor so effortlessly teeters between the subtle and the absurd — just like all of those cameos. Viewers took to Twitter to react to the ever-growing lineup of stars.

For now, it’s unclear whether or not he’ll remain Joe Exotic’s husband in the long run, but it looks like one or both will keep us updated.

Following the controversial TV exchange, the situation went from bad to worse when former Talk co-host Holly Robinson Peete accused Osbourne of racism on social media.

Blind spots on the Left: White privilege, White supremacy and the blood-stained fabric of America.
       
Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America's history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal. Whiteness, to those born with a fortuitous skin pigmentation, immediately confers White privilege. This defensiveness derails the conversation, which means, unfortunately, that defining white privilege must often begin with defining what it’s not. September 30, 2020 White supremacy is the belief in the superiority of the white race, and that it should therefore dominate other races—especially the Black race. And, due to American white supremacy and the resulting apartheid, discrimination has, so far, bled into and through my Black American life.

Before we get into the list, some housekeeping: What makes an actor a character actor? The most obvious definition is that a character actor is not a lead. Except that sometimes, aging stars will do their best work in character roles, while other character actors turn out to be stars-in-waiting. While an A-lister’s stock may rise and fall with the fashions of the day, a character actor can stay booked and busy for decades. This physicality, coupled with the sheer variety of roles he’s played, brings a Shakespearean quality to his screen presence.

Amid plenty of conveniently timed relationship drama, Addison Rae made her late-night debut on The Tonight Show on Friday with her latest single, “Obsessed.” Rae’s performance, helped along by a team of dancers, evoked early Britney Spears, what with the intense (and now infamous) choreography and obvious lip-syncing.

Rae’s debut on late night comes after ex-boyfriend Bryce Hall diplomatically addressed the cheating rumors surrounding his break-up with Rae in a YouTube video, saying, “We’ve mutually decided that it would be best if we parted ways.” For her part, Rae has neither confirmed nor denied the cheating allegations, but we can probably take her at her word when she sings, “And if I lost you / I’d still have me / I can’t lose.”Related

Watch the Weather Station Perform ‘Ignorance’ Songs on ‘CBS This Morning’

Lindeman previously said in a statement, “I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset.”“Lindeman treats Ignorance as a breakup-record with her own dying planet, grappling with what she describes, at one point, as the ‘fragile idea that anything matters,’” Rolling Stone said of the album in a four-star review. “Alternating between glassy piano dance grooves and somber noir-folk explorations, the result is an album that sounds like a millennial Joni Mitchell fronting jazzy versions of LCD Soundsystem or the National, depending on the song.”Other recent “Saturday Sessions” included Valerie June, Black Pumas, Waxahatchee with Kevin Morby and Julien Baker.

And the most popular dog names may change a bit from town to town, but generally what is popular in one place is fairly popular elsewhere, too. But dog names, unlike names for children, seem to cover more ground — they range from the mundane to the laughable, from the silly to the quaint. Like dog names, breeds in communities the Globe surveyed around Boston also roughly tracked the national figures, with some variations.

Opinion | ‘Children’s author’ Beverly Cleary was a great writer, period
       
The Bard of Klickitat Street, the creator of Beezus and Ramona, their friend Henry Huggins, the mutt Ribsy and the cat Picky-Picky. These are, of course, allusions to various classics that range from pretty darn good to genuinely great. Cleary’s work is packed with such masterly paragraphs on nearly every page. At the same time, like all children, Ramona is growing up swiftly. But to me, Beverly Cleary won’t fully have her due as long as she’s remembered as a great children’s author.
Asian women say Hollywood has failed them for decades. They’re ready for meaningful change.
       
ADADThe Atlanta murders occurred amid a surge in anti-Asian hate crimes, both extreme examples of the harm inflicted upon Asian American communities. In Hollywood, it can more subtly manifest in objectified portrayals like that of “A Benihana Christmas,” or the running gag on “Scrubs” about Dr. Kelso fetishizing Asian women. “The stories have been told from within such a limited demographic.”Just before mourning the lives lost in Atlanta, Asian and Asian American members of Hollywood celebrated the milestone achievements of their peers. ADAD“Sexuality is a part of life, and unfortunately it’s been used in such a disciplinary way for Asian women,” she continues. The “To All the Boys” franchise centers on a Korean American protagonist who refuses to conform to anyone’s expectations.

Riz Ahmed is grateful for his "longer, more arduous journey" into Hollywood. He said: "I feel like, for a lot of people, after a Shifty or a Four Lions, they’d be in Hollywood.

And Now, the Design District gallery led by British expat James Cope, is known for showing conceptually demanding work in an intimate space. Encompassing seven works by six artists (Justine Melford-Colegate has two), the show can be sized up at a glance, like a hand of cards.

A “super smart” dog who doesn’t take no for an answer is ready for a new home, but he comes with a purple unicorn. People magazine reports that animal control officers were called to a North Carolina Dollar Store because Sisu, a stray pup, kept entering the premises when customers opened the door, apparently to visit a stuffed animal to which he had taken a liking. “He went straight for the unicorn, the same one every time,” Duplin County Animal Services’ supervisor Joe Newburn said. She remedied the situation by buying the $10 stuffed unicorn for Sisu, who followed the plush toy and the officer out of the store.

Paul's Book Reviews
       
There's a fascinating story here, the last point in particular one I haven't seen explored in any science fiction novel or story I've read ... and I've read a lot. At one point I put the book aside to read some reviews on Goodreads; one of the reviewers counseled patience ... all my questions would be answered, he said. I stovepipe, publishing my reviews as standalone blog posts, not normally discussing what I've read in other posts. My overwhelming sense of the book, now I've read it, remains as above. I'm less happy with "Below Zero" than I have been with previous Joe Pickett novels.
After over a decade spent playing World of Warcraft, I finally have Black avatars
       
It’s not surprising that, due to my reading choices, I would choose role-playing video games that allowed me to step into those fantasy worlds. Yet, as video games continue to grow, both in popularity and scope, racism and harassment remain endemic to the experience. There's plenty about Wreck List of Garrosh (US-H) that's a little different from your run-of-the-mill World of Warcraft guild. With a median member age of about 40, Wreck List boasts well over 200 members, half of them women. Wreck List Guild.
Money talks. Often that's bad, but sometimes it's good.
       
After muting Lindell's microphone, a Newsmax anchor told viewers that the My Pillow Inc founder's claims were unsubstantiated and unverified. The anchor then read a prepared statement that included: "Newsmax accepts the (election) results as legal and final." Since Newsmax is considered to be far to the right of Fox News, this has got to mean something. It can be terribly frustrating when actual, provable facts are ignored by bad actors who don’t WANT to accept those facts. But it is somewhat heartening to discover that when actual facts become combined with a potential monetary impact in a court of law, people’s minds suddenly become more amenable to reason.

HBO's Tina Turner documentary is her way of saying thank you — and goodbye — to all of us
       
HBO's "Tina" opens with a thunderous greeting from Tina Turner: a clip from 30 years ago of the then-50-year-old singer in all of her silver-sequined, long-legged glory, demanding that a stadium full of people ask her how she feels.

San Jose landmark design chosen; here’s what comes next
       
“Why pick a design that isn’t truly innovative for a project that’s going to celebrate our region, known worldwide as the center of innovation?” Ball said. A conical void within the structure pays tribute to the San Jose Electric Light Tower, which stood downtown from 1881 to 1915. There will be multiple levels of walkways, an exhibition space, a café and a viewing platform that should offer stunning views of the valley from its location in the Arena Green West portion of the Guadalupe River Park.

Alexander Graham Bell had a deaf wife — and these shocking, anti-deaf views
       
Alexander Graham Bell believed the deaf shouldn’t intermarry or have children, but he married and had four children with Mabel Hubbard, who lost her hearing aged five. “The fact that this was not what the deaf themselves were asking for didn’t concern [him] at all,” Booth writes. In fact, appearing as if she could hear as well as anybody “was a guiding tenant of her life,” writes Booth. In June of 1875, Bell wrote a letter to Mabel’s mother, confessing his love for her daughter. “You are very tender and gentle to the deaf children, but their interest to you lies in their being deaf, not in their humanity.”Bell never abandoned oralism.

All but invisible behind a verdant wall of foliage, the half-acre hillside property was acquired by pop star Gwen Stefani and her then husband, musician Gavin Rossdale, in 1998 for $1.375 million. After they spent a fortune to add a swimming pool, among other costly improvements, they sold it in 2007 for $4.8 million to TV writer/producer Mark Brazill (“The 70s Show,” “3rd Rock From the Sun”), who quickly flipped it in the fall of 2009 for close to $4 million — a heart-stopping $800 loss!— to artist Bill Nelson and Lärabar snack bar creator Lara Merriken. It was Nelson and Merriken who sold the house to the Ferguson-Mikitas who soon engaged to the services of “Will & Grace” set decorator and interior designer Peter Gurski to do up the house in a manner described in Architectural Digest in 2018 as “highly personal” with a prudently balanced mix of historical architectural details, classic Old Hollywood glamour, cheeky masculinity, and carefully curated kitch.

But Invincible also grounds itself in a world where people (including superhumans) bleed, things break, and endings aren't always happy.

I knew Ramona Quimby. With any luck, you did too.
       
“(Ramona) wasn’t really that likable a character. The book was ‘Ramona the Pest,’ and she’s a pest — but somehow she resonated. She resonated among kids who had little sisters like that, and she resonated with kids who maybe also act like that themselves. Until then, you needed almost a heroic — or at least really likable — main character, and this was really the first kids book to show kids in all their flaws, and all the good, the bad and the ugly. I think it opened the door for books such as ‘Harriet the Spy.’”

New Disney+ 'Mighty Ducks' series banks on nostalgia and our love of the underdog

"We all read through the scripts, and everyone was free to make any kind of comment they wanted about what needed to be to be adjusted, whether it was language or a cultural beat,” Fontana said. “City on a Hill,” created by Chuck MacLean and based on an idea by MacLean and actor-filmmaker Ben Affleck, was designed to rotate each season to a different section of Boston. Its eight new episodes focus on the Roxbury neighborhood and a federal housing project beset with drug violence and untrustworthy local law enforcement. Devastating gang violence and youth homicides were a bleak reality for the real East Coast city until the arrival in the mid-1990s of what became dubbed the “Boston Miracle," concerted change that stretched over years and which inspired the Showtime series. “It’s remarkable what happened in Boston during this period, not that everybody and all the world was suddenly a perfect place,” Fontana said.

What The Hell Is Going On In The Suicide Squad Trailer?
       
James Gunn, director of the Guardian of the Galaxy movies, has stepped in to make the sort-of sequel The Suicide Squad (the “the” tells you this isn't so much a follow-up as a reset of the 2016 film), and the first trailer for the Aug. 6th film seems to be designed to baffle with its candy-colored absurdity. It's hard to know exactly what's happening in this story. A team has been assembled for another Dirty Dozen-style mission, from which they may not return—and that apparently involves fighting … a gigantic starfish? Rather than delving into what's what, the best we can do right now is break down who's who. He was an especially unpredictable member of the Suicide Squad in the comics, whose sociopathic tendencies tended to thwart the missions more than help them.
Lil Nas X Develops His Love for Showmanship—and His Authenticity—on “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”
       
By the time Lil Nas X released the remix to “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus in April 2019, it was clear that the rapper behind the phenomenon wasn’t simply a burgeoning pop star, he was a multi-platform experience. The video, directed by Ukrainian photographer Tanu Muino, who has also worked with Cardi B and Katy Perry, shows the psychedelic journey of a suite of characters, mainly played by Lil Nas himself, from a Garden of Eden-esque paradise to the underworld, all rendered with visual effects. Lil Nas X, whose given name is Montero Lamar Hill, also released a message to his 14-year-old self that connected the lyrical subject matter to his own sexuality. “I know we promised to never come out publicly,” he wrote in a Tweet. Lil Nas X is a perfect avatar for a moment that mixes earnest individual expression with referential pastiche, all mediated by technology.
Derek Jeter Is Still Trying to Sell His $29 Million Florida Mansion
       
Derek Jeter has now joined the ranks of Michael Jordan and Tom Cruise in terms of extremely rich men trying to unload their multi-million dollar properties. According to the New York Post, the Tampa mansion where Jeter let Tom Brady and his family live last year after he signed with the Buccaneers, has been on the market for 190 days. Jeter bought the property back in 2005 for $2.3 million before doing extensive renovations, putting it back on the market with a 1260% markup in September after Brady moved out. The 21,796 square-foot mansion is located in the exclusive Davis Islands community of Tampa and features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and sweeping waterfront views. But in the case of his Tampa property, the problem might not be Jeter, but rather the home itself.
The Office Actor Kat Ahn Calls Out Show for Portrayal of Asian Women
       
The Office might have ended in 2013, but NBC’s hit sitcom has recently come under fire for its depictions of Asian Americans—specifically, Asian American women.

In January, Ahn posted a viral TikTok about her experience on the sitcom, calling The Office’s depiction of Asian women “problematic.” “The story line with myself and the other Asian American actress is that we were the ‘uglier’ version of the actresses at the Benihana,” Ahn explained in the video. Ahn is also not the only Asian American actor to speak out about racism they faced after appearing on the show.

Prince Albert of Monaco Thinks Meghan and Harry Should Deal With the Royals in “The Intimate Quarters of the Family”
       
When presenter Yalda Hakim mentioned Oprah’s headline-grabbing interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Albert responded with a surprising amount of candor. “The prince privately has never disputed that she is his daughter,” a friend of Albert told the tabloid. Albert is not the only European royal to condemn Meghan and Harry for sitting down with Oprah. Austria’s Archduke Karl von Habsburg, a distant relative of the Windsors, told Royal Central that he thought Harry’s low position on the line of succession made the international broadcast inappropriate. It is only internal gossip and garbage.”When Hakim asked Albert if he had any advice for Harry, the ruler of Monaco was vague.
Tina Turner’s Final Act
       
For a very long time, Tina Turner has wanted to stop talking in interviews about her abusive ex-husband, the highly talented and very troubled music producer Ike Turner. But it also honors Turner’s wish to be relinquished from the constant rehashing of her most painful moments. And though it doesn’t shy away from the darkness held within her biography, Tina turns decidedly toward the light. The result is a film that shines, both in its passion for Turner’s talent and the depth and complexity of her character. Much of the answer lies in Turner’s childhood as Anna Mae Bullock, which she and Loder dove into in I, Tina.
