Kelly, describing him as 'dismissive' of women and children, and an abuser. Martinez was only 17 when she believed Kelly would offer mentorship in a musical career.
- Yesterday Lady Gaga posted an apology online amidst the release of the docuseries in reference to her 2013 collaboration with R. Kelly, calling the collaboration indefensible and expressing she stands by the survivors of sexual assault. McGee appreciated Gaga's words saying "I actually smiled. I was like, 'thank you'" while Martinez added "that was really powerful of her."

- Just last night, R. Kelly celebrated his 52nd birthday with many adoring fans gathered to his event.

One of the commentators included in the R. Kelly documentary was journalist Touré Neblett. He is quite familiar with the allegations Kelly has faced throughout his career and in 2008, interviewed R. Kelly for BET, and as seen in the documentary.
Touré then appeared in a podcast to discuss the documentary and the aftermath of the series. In the comments of a promotional clip of the podcast, a make-up artist who goes by Dani, accused the journalist of sexually harassing her on a show they used to work on together. She posted screenshots (at the source) of him apologizing to her in 2017 and told Essence
“He went on Hot97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized). I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators,” she said.
Essence reached out to his employer Time Inc., which issued a statement saying they do not discuss personnel matters, but stated Touré is no longer employed at the company.
Terry Crews was set to appear on his podcast hours before the Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiere on NBC but cancelled after the allegations surfaced.
"I think our problem is essentially that every awards ceremony in the UK stinks"—Thom Yorke https://t.co/Ppvm9w6leL— Pitchfork (@pitchfork) January 9, 2019
OP’s dumbass problematic fave, Thom Yorke, who composed the score for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspiria is not showing up to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because he’s bougie and attending the Paris Philharmonic even though that event is nine days after the Hall of Fame ceremony in New York. (See? Bougie.) His score was not shortlisted for the Academy Awards, but the song “Suspirium” was shortlisted by the Academy for Best Original Song. Yorke, who has often shirked awards in the past does hope that he gets an Oscar nomination due to working on the score for a year and a half.
Some unreleased songs for Yorke’s Suspiria score will be released on limited edition vinyl that quickly sold out and OP will be forever upset that she missed out. However some copies will be available in some select record stores. Yorke recently wrapped up his solo tour in December.
A B-side to Radiohead’s 2016 album A Moon Shaped Pool, “Ill Wind” was released today on all major streaming services and available to download.
Lana teased another song and video off her upcoming album Norman Fucking Rockwell on instagram this week, posing in a parking lot alongside her tour background dancers. This is not the first time Lana has taken us behind the scenes with this particular track, titled Happiness is a Butterfly having uploaded a couple of different takes from the recording sessions over the past year.

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson cover this month's EW. In the article, they discuss their memories of the original Men in Black series and if they have any theories about extraterrestrial life.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson on Men in Black memories, real-life alien theories, and more https://t.co/jndgCA6dmB— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) January 10, 2019
Memories of the Men In Black Series
Chris:"The shot that’s sort of iconic to me from this whole franchise is Will running through the street in that initial pursuit, which was just such a great way to introduce that character."
Tessa:"The theme song really [brings back] memories of dancing to that and mimicking what happens in the video. And probably also the slime — I just remember when the aliens die, the way they do it in that sort of Technicolor. That neon slime and probably Will Smith being catapulted in various ways are it for me."
Do they believe?
Chris: "Yeah, I think it’s naïve to think there’s nothing else out there — that we’re alone in the universe... On a how could there not be level, a pure sort of small scientific understanding of it, I think there has to be something else."
Tessa: "Yes! Maybe not in the way that they’re depicted in movies like this one, but this idea that there is some other sort of life...Playing a character like Molly, who is, like, full-on X-Files Mulder’ I want to believe,’ has had me thinking about it a lot more."
ONTD, do you believe in life on other planets? Or that there really is a Men In Black secret organization?

Head of Japan's Olympic Committee Tsunekazu Takeda has been indicted in Paris for "active corruption" in connection with awarding of #Tokyo2020 Olympics - he strongly denies accusationhttps://t.co/8QgeYDXUHbpic.twitter.com/vxn0orJRxz— AFP Sport (@AFP_Sport) January 11, 2019
- he has been indicted in Paris on December 10,
- he has been indicted for "active corruption",
- says he had cooperated with a French judge
- says he's not involved in any wrongdoings,
- the French investigate a connection between suspect payment of 2.8 million Singapore dollars and awarding of the 2020 Olympics to Tokyo.
'The Upside', the American adaptation of the critically-acclaimed French movie 'The Intouchables' (watch that instead), kicked off this weekend's box office with $1.1 million on Thursday in 2,460 screenings across US/Canada. The movie was filmed YEARS ago and finally got release - who knows why now - and stars Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman.
Two other movies that opened on Thursday include the family feature 'A Dog's Way Home', which brought in $535,000 at 2,657 screens, and Keanu Reeves' latest 'Replicas' ($30M budget), which made a terrible $200,100 from 1,630 theaters.
But these new releases matter not as Warner Bros.''Aquaman' is expected to top the box office for the fourth week in a row, making around $15M-$20M and finally breaking the $1 billion mark internationally. 'The Upside' ($30M–$35M budget) and 'A Dog's Way Home' ($18M budget) will vie for the second spot, both expected to make around $10M each.
The show scored 3.6 million viewers and a 1.2 demo last night

Buku Abi posted to her Instagram story yesterday to call her father what he is: a monster.
“The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house” https://t.co/hS4Pj3ZwvG— The Cut (@TheCut) January 11, 2019
From her Instagram story: "To the people who feel that I should be speaking up / against everything is going on right now, I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for what I feel currently. I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless."
Persistent requests for public comments about Kelly have hindered both her own healing process and that of her family, none of whom have been in contact with Kelly for years: “My choice not to speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house.”
