In A Backlash Against Ableist Rhetoric, Beyonc Decided To Nix The Word “Ableist” From Its Lyrics For Its Hit Song “Heated.”

After receiving online backlash and criticism from disability campaigners, Beyoncé says she will remove an ableist slur from her new album, "Renaissance." The 40-year-old singer debuted her dance-inspired seventh studio album on Friday, but she came under fire over the weekend when fans noticed the inclusion of a derogatory term in the song "Heated." On the track, co-written by Drake, Beyoncé sings the line: "Spazzin' on that ass, spazz on that ass." The word "spaz" is a derogatory word that derives from the medical term "spastic cerebral palsy," which is considered offensive to people with spastic cerebral palsy. People with the disorder have trouble controlling their muscles and experience tremors, muscle spasms, or abnormal postures. Beyoncé's new album has inspired a lot of discu...

Actress Selma Blair says she is hoping to appear in "Legally Blonde 3."

Ratings For “Squid Assassins: The Game” On Netflix Are Inciting Anticipation For On High Probability Of Streaming A Korean Hit.

The creator of a newly released new South Korean show about a female attorney hopes that it may have the same popular appeal as the "Squid Game." A South Korean television series about a young lawyer who is also on the autism spectrum has become a hit on the streaming platform. Netflix said that "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" was one of its most-watched non-English shows globally from July 4 to 17. The show ranked number one in that category in eight countries, and appeared in the top 10 for 22 countries, according to the company's metrics. Shares of Astory Co., the South Korean studio that produced the show with Netflix and also created another hit for it, "Kingdom," have surged 74% in Seoul since the debut of "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" in late June. It is also good news for Netflix...

Vintage Is Winning The Redcarpet This Summer.

Next year s hottest occasion dresses will date back to decades past! It is amazing that some celebrities like Zendaya, Natalie Portman, and Bella Hadid are appearing in outfits similar to these on summer s red carpets. However, because the same outfits are generally worn at red carpet events, many important celebrities are currently digging through the past and reviving vintage designs. In June, Zendaya attended the Time 100 Gala in New York City wearing a strapless Bob Mackie gown from the label’s autumn/winter 1998 collection. The streamlined silhouette—complete with woven blue and teal panelling—felt surprisingly fresh on the actor. Law Roach styled it, saying “Vintage and archival dressing isn’t a trend for me… [It] will always be my first choice when possible.” Roach also styled Be...

The Latest Lovelorn Heroine In Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ Is Dakota Johnson.

I believe that I'm craving orderliness as a result of some issues in the outside world. My attempt at sorting through the storm is to take out a movie, TV show, podcast, or book nightly to give me just another source of order in the universe. 'Persuasion' Full transparency: I have never been a huge fan of Jane Austen, but I'm giving Regency romance another try thanks to the new adaptation "Persuasion," starring Dakota Johnson.

Old, New, And International (“Squid Game!”) Emmys 2022 Compete In A Dizzying Awards Derby.

Some things old, some things new, something international and groundbreaking, and a good deal of real-life-inspired drama. This year's Emmy Awards nominations juggled two seemingly impossible tasks: they tried to identify standout new series, like "Only Murders in the Building" and "Abbott Elementary," while acknowledging older ones that were in or about to enter their final seasons. Add to that an increasingly international flavor to the television landscape, with Netflix's South Korean sensation "Squid Game" securing a best-drama nomination -- the first non-English-language show to achieve that feat -- and you have a solid prescription for what an overwhelming task this has become. How overwhelming? Well, for starters, the Television Academy dispensed with decades of tradition and did...

‘Westworld’ Again Boards Its Carriages But Never Quite Escapes The Maze It Has Constructed.

"Westworld" returns for a third season, featuring several familiar faces in unfamiliar roles and extending aspects of the second season that creatively sailed off the rails. While there is surely intelligent life out there eager to see where this goes, at this point it's not so much a question of not being able to follow the series through its convoluted maze as simply not feeling as if it's worth the energy to try. Looking more conspicuously futuristic in its design, the HBO drama still boasts an assortment of really good actors, augmented by James Marsden returning and Oscar winner Ariana DeBose and Daniel Wu among the new additions. Much of the bloodshed inflicted on one person is committed anonymously and at random, with little indication that the train will even reach its destinati...
