-Colombian breakout reggaeton star J Balvin was going to have his first mainstream US performance but pulled out because Donald Trump is a racist dickwad and Balvin doesn't want to support anything that has to do with him
-Trump owns the Miss Universe Organization in a joint venture with NBCUniversal. He gave a speech when he announced his presidency and addressed immigration from Mexico.
-He said that The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems, and that when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
-He also said that it's coming from more than Mexico-- from all over South and Latin America and the Middle East and that it needs to stop.
-Balvin says Mexico is a Latin powerhouse, Latinos are hard workers, they do jobs people in the US don't want to do. Trump's comments are ignorant and he's fine not performing
-Let's not forget Miss USA Nia Sanchez is part Mexican and Miss Universe Paulina Vega is Colombian
-Flo Rida, Natalie La Rose and Craig Wayne Boyd (who?) are still set to perform
Good for him. Fuck Donald Trump.
RIP the civil wars but this is still good. the album is supposed ~reveal what happened with the civil wars and I'm like 99% sure they had feelings for each other now
YOUNGER on TV LAND
-The show scored the largest in-season growth for an original series in the TV Land’s history.
ONTD, what shows do you recommend to binge watch?
Man, it's a ride on ONTD. Favs rise high and crash hard, if they aren't too busy being Rhitired to rise at all. Or maybe they just fade into irrelevancy. Yet somehow, ONTD gets caught time and again begging those favs to come back and "save the pop game"-- well, too bad ONTD, pop has saved itself.
While Rihanna pursued artistic expression and/or a fashion career, all her regular songwriters and producers wandered off to make their own carreers or support other artists. Max Martin waited by the phone for Justin Bieber to call, but Bieber was doing community work and missed his window. Radio could only play "Dark Horse" on repeat so many times before it became a DEAD Horse.
And oh how we whined! But while we were doing that, pop saw the vacuum and filled it with a fantastic crop of stars who have made 2015 into the best year for pop since 2010, and it did it in only 6 months.
Here are the 2015 albums that prove pop doesn't need an A-List:
ADAM LAMBERT - THE ORIGINAL HIGH
Super gay and super proud to sing it loud, Adam Lambert made a fantastic album that features Max Martin's pop flare mixed with the 80s rock glam Adam has tapped into so perfectly from his work with Queen.
CARLY RAE JEPSEN - E•MO•TION
Carly Rae isn't jumping on the trend of bringing back the 80s & 90s with her new album-- "Kiss", her chronically underrated pop jem from 2012, had a very similar feel. But she did it all again with E•MO•TION, delivering a full LP of irresistible bubblegum pop. Could she be bound to follow a career similar to Robyn's? Only time will tell.
Hilary Duff - Breathe In. Breathe Out.
What has been going into or out of the Disney/Nickelodeon water? First Nick Jonas released last year's fantastic self-titled album, and this year a certain ex-Lizzie McGuire did the same. I certainly wasn't expecting her album to be fantastic, but Hilary was another singer who caught wind of Swedish producers with time on their hands, and reaps the benefits in a great way.
JASON DERULO - EVERYTHING IS 4
My personal king Jason Derulo has tapped into some great old and new talent for his fourth album, and this song is a perfect example of it. If there's no other reason to get rid of pop's A-list, it's to make room for people like Jason at the top.
GIORGIO MORODER - DEJA VU
There could never have been a better time for Giorgio Moroder to make his comeback. As the aughts daunce through the end of the 20th century to shape our own music, Moroder sets up camp where he's always been, in the heart of disco, and done what he does best-- brings the future into our hearts & ears.
FIFTH HARMONY - REFLECTION
I don't care about choosing sides when it comes to girl bands, because I want them all to succeed. And with "Reflection", these girls show that they're ready for the big leagues.
And of course, there's a bunch of people STILL RELEASING this year that are going to be epic.
Years & Years - Communion
This is going to be great, lbr.
There are a lot I didn't even mention in this post... Meghan Trainor, Marina and the Diamonds, Madeon... for a more comprehensive list, see my summary of good music for Q1 and look forward to my upcoming post on the music that came out in Q2!
What is your favourite music out this year, ONTD? Are you still pointlessly waiting for big names to release and ignoring the perfection coming from smaller artists?
The massive number of complaints from PC users has prompted WB/Rocksteady to suspend sales until the problems are fixed.
Arkham Knight has debuted to great reviews from critics and players - unless those players are playing on a PC. Around 2/3 of Steam users have given the game a negative score, citing a variety of issues which include a locked-in 30 fps, missing graphic features, and constant crashing and glitching. This has rendered the game unplayable for many. It's not an issue with meeting specs, even players with high end gaming systems are suffering from the same problems.
Rocksteady did not handle the PC port themselves but outsourced it to a much smaller studio. It is a common complaint that PC ports often feel like an afterthought to developers; Arkham Knight is just the latest and most extreme example.
From the company's statement: "We want to apologize to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards."
WB has not given any estimate as to when the game will be ready, making the suspension indefinite at the moment.

You might recall that Marvel and Sony had an agreement for Marvel to use Spider Man and some of the restrictions were “Caucasian,” “not a homosexual (unless Marvel has portrayed that alter ego as a homosexual);” “does not sell/distribute illegal drugs,” and, most peculiarly, “does not have sex before the age of 16, does not have sex with anyone below the age of 16.”
Now Stan Lee is giving his opinion.
“I wouldn’t mind, if Peter Parker had originally been black, a Latino, an Indian or anything else, that he stay that way,” Lee said. “But we originally made him white. I don’t see any reason to change that.”
Lee also does not see any reason to change Peter Parkers race or sexuality for the big screen.
“I think the world has a place for gay superheroes, certainly,” he said. “But again, I don’t see any reason to change the sexual proclivities of a character once they’ve already been established. I have no problem with creating new, homosexual superheroes.” (Have you though?)
“It has nothing to do with being anti-gay, or anti-black, or anti-Latino, or anything like that,” Lee said. “Latino characters should stay Latino. The Black Panther should certainly not be Swiss. I just see no reason to change that which has already been established when it’s so easy to add new characters. I say create new characters the way you want to. Hell, I’ll do it myself.”

Someone has taken their love of killer sprees too far when murders take place after a cyber-bullying incident. White teens are joined together to find out who the killer is and who stays alive.
Cast includes Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Willa Fitzgerald, Jason Wiles, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini and Connor Wile.
Although this series uses the title Scream, it will not feature the infamous Ghostface mask, nor will it have any of the original stars. Back in May, Neve Campbell said she would be interested in making a cameo if the script was good, but said she was never approached.
Scream premieres at 10 PM Tuesday, June 30, on MTV

Taylor Swift’s Tumblr ‘Likes’ Found, Dubbed ‘Hilarious,’ ‘Embarrassing’ By The Media
- Inquisitr.com sources ONTD: "Meanwhile, other fans on celebrity gossip site Oh No They Didn’t! remarked that Swift’s Tumblr likes are downright 'embarrassing.'"
- The article points out: "She faves posts that remark about how influential she is on the music industry and on others in general. Some fans have compared her to the likes of President Barack Obama or Mother Theresa."
- And: "Swift also “likes” posts that defend her fashion sense, and posts from fans who obsess over her relationship with Calvin Harris."
- Plus this: "Although some would say that Taylor’s head has gotten bigger since her fans build her up as some god or deity."

Creepy post? ONTD: What makes you scream?
-She'll appear in the later episodes of AHS: Hotel
-Devil Spawn Murphy says she'll do a fun thing with her ex Evan Peters at the end.
-She'll go film AHS after she's done shooting Scream Queens
Boston's brooding electro-pop band Pvris covered Sia's "Chandelier" for the re-release of Punk Goes Pop vol. 6 and it is perfect. Their recent cover of Tove Lo's "Talking Body" is equally amazing. The band is currently on Warped Tour for the duration of the Summer, recently won Best International Newcomer at the UK Kerrang! Awards, and are nominated for multiple awards at the APMAs in July, including Best Video for "St. Patrick" and Song of the Year for "My House."
If you haven't started listening to this band, it's far past time to get into them. Lynn's got a really unique voice and I'm always here for female frontwoman who don't suck.
Mitch Winehouse sends PMs to journalist who reviewed "Amy"
Quote exerpt: ... I was never an absent father. I was just a father who worked late to support his family. Everyone knows this. The last 3 years of Amy’s life were certainly up and down with the ultimate tragedy of losing our beloved daughter. ... Amy was clean of drugs for 3 years at the point of her passing, but she really struggled with alcohol. However, the last 6 weeks of her life— 5 weeks and 4 days— were spent sober. ... I do not say “Amy didn’t need to go to rehab.” I said “Amy didn’t need to go to rehab…at that time.(2005).” We have the transcript to prove this.
New clip: Amy Winehouse talks about depression

Despite performing well this WC (even better than their male counterparts last year), Australia's womens soccer team get paid considerably less and most play part time
Experts say the team could be a lot better if they were paid enough to play full time like the US and other countries.
FIFA has committed millions of dollars to develop women's soccer programs around the world and an estimated 30 million girls (and counting) play soccer
PLUS: hilarious video by Norwegian soccer players on women's soccer stereotypes.

Two big games tomorrow! Who ya got? USA vs China? Germany vs France?
Bravo's Real Housewives tend to consult psychics on a regular basis (RHOA's Kim has Rose, RHONJ's Dina has James, RHOMelbourne's Jackie being one her damn self, etc...) or be put in positions where they get a reading (RHONY in Morocco, RHOA in South Africa, and so on). Over the years I've noticed that some predictions have been STARTLINGLY true. Let's review, shall we?
Mario is Cheating on Ramona - Season 4, Ep 9-10 in Morocco (2011)
The psychic reads all of the women while at Brad's (Jill's friend) birthday party. Kelly and Luann translate for Ramona, and it is revealed that Mario has "une autre femme" (another woman). Ramona is at the height of her delusion and thinks the psychic is talking about a baby she is going to have but LuLu clarifies that's definitely not the case. Jill whispers to someone that she's heard Mario is cheating amongst "her circle of friends". Sonja bursts into tears and literally says, "What if he leaves you after Avery goes off to college or something?". And of course, now we know it was all true, timing and all.
Kandi is Going to Get Married - Season 4, Ep 14 in South Africa (2011)
Todd was a RHOA producer on the trip to South Africa (he says she caught his eye on that trip) and this is where he and Kandi started to become romantic. The guy reading her fortune says, "he is with you, he is going with you everywhere, he's like your man" which in hindsight makes sense, because as a producer he would be with her and the women pretty much constantly. At first Kandi thinks he is referring to AJ, her dead fiancé, but there's no way she could know at the time she'd end up marrying Todd.
Sheree is Not Going to Get Married Again - Season 4, Ep 14 in South Africa (2011)
I mean... it's been over four years, so. Also, the best part of this? When the guy told her she was too old and would just stay in her house. At least Chateau Sheree is almost finished!
NeNe is Not Happy - Season 4, Ep 14 in South Africa (2011)
This is before NeNe and Gregg got divorced. The medicine man basically tells her that she's not happy and if she's not happy in her marriage, she should leave. But also that "your man, he's the right man". NeNe did leave, but she and Gregg ended up getting re-married and are seemingly happy again. I guess he was the "right man" after all.
Lisa Will Have One Baby Boy - Season 2, Ep 9 in Miami (2012)
Norman and Mama Elsa have a Psychic Stand Off™ at Lea's home where he performs some readings and Elsa tries to undermine what he says (it's amazing, trust me). One of his predictions has to do with Lisa's ongoing fertility issues; she and her husband have been desperate for a baby and went through multiple rounds of IVF. His prediction is that she will have one baby, a boy, and that's it. In February of 2015, it was announced that they are expecting their first baby via surrogate! Whether it is a boy or girl has not been revealed, so either Norman will be vindicated, or Elsa will be thrilled at his failure, in a few month's time.
And of course, the most famous of all:
Mauricio Doesn't Emotionally Fulfill Kyle - Season 1, Ep 9 in Beverly Hills (2010)
Allison asks Kyle if she'd been married twice and the answer was yes. Allison told her that was a good thing because she is only getting married twice in her lifetime, so she was worried she was about to tell Kyle she'd be getting a divorce. Allison continues that Mauricio will "never emotionally fulfill [Kyle], but you will stay with him, and he'll take care of you. As soon as the kids are bigger you'll have nothing in common". Now, of course nothing has been proven, but cheating rumors plague Mauricio pretty much constantly, including being a major part of the rift between Lisa and Kyle two seasons ago. Kyle continues to get crazy defensive about them when they are brought up and it is the opinion of this Real Housewives expert (nick_jonas-jealous.mp3?), that if there was no truth to them, she wouldn't get so upset. Time will tell!
Any other memorable moments with the Psychics of Real Housewives that I've forgotten?
