“When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up,” she wrote.

“My wise friend who always gives the best advice. Not to forget the one who’s wild and says ‘It’s your Saturn return babes, f*** it, you only live once’. The friend who’d stay up all night and just hold my hand while I’d sob relentlessly not knowing why. The get up and go friend who would pick me up and take me somewhere I said I didn’t want to go but just wanted to get me out the house for some vitamin D.

“That friend who snuck in and left a magazine with a face mask and some bath salts to make me feel loved while inadvertently reminding me not only what month it actually was but that I should probably exercise some self-care,” she added.

“And then that friend who no matter what, checked in on me even though I’d stopped checking in with them because I’d become so consumed by my own grief. I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it.”

Singer Charlie Puth says his new single was inspired by the “worst year” of his life and an incredibly difficult breakup.

The 30-year-old pop star announced his new single ‘That’s Hilarious’ and said that he based it on a breakup which happened during a particularly tough 2019, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Charlie Puth said: “It just rears its ugly head every time-sorry-every time that I hear it. I’m also really excited for you to hear it as well, because I just heard the master, but it just brought me back to 2019, which was the f****** worst year of my life.”

The ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ hitmaker went on to explain that although Charlie Puth e had never opened up about it at the time he had gone through the “worst breakup” of his life that year and had initially wanted to forget all about it before using it as inspiration for his music.

Speaking in a video posted to Instagram, Charlie Puth said: “I never told people what happened to me and the pain that I went through going through the worst breakup of my life in 2019. I just wanted to throw it under the carpet and just start over and surround myself with better people.”

Charlie Puth did not reveal who the song was about, although he was reportedly dating fellow singer Charlotte Lawrence during 2019 and is also thought to have been previously linked to pop star Selena Gomez and actress Halston Sage, but claimed that the song is the “hardest” he has ever had to write.

Charlie Puth concluded: “This is the hardest song that I’ve ever had to put together and I’m so excited for you to hear it. So thank you.”

Who is Charlie Puth

Charles Otto “Charlie” Puth is a popular American pop singer and songwriter. He started gaining fame by posting his original songs and covers to his YouTube channel. After his talents were exposed to the world he was signed in by Ellen DeGeneres for a record label, which led to the start of his official career.

His debut studio album was released in January 2016 by the American record label Atlantic Records. Even though it received negative reviews from critics it peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 published by the ‘Billboard’ magazine. A deluxe edition was also released in November which contained three additional songs.

For a singer with so many accomplishments, Charlie Puth is definitely not considered “general.”

Due to lack of publicity and promotions, also due to employment of poor publicist can leave an artist with limited limelight.

As his fans know, Charlie Puth is self sufficient, evident from his social media posts which are mostly unfiltered. His habit goes to an extent that he has been recording his albums at home. He’s just two years old in mainstream music industry.

Apart from that, fans start losing interest in an artist when there’s is a long gap between albums. Puth released Nine Track Mind in January 2016, and since then, he has been out of spotlight until he released Attention this year. When fans dont get new stuff, they can only chew the old one for so long. Slowly the interest dies. The hype only sustains if there is something worth tapping into. When singers alleged link ups and bar brawls surface, they keep themselves under constant media & thus public’s scrutiny. As it’s been a well knows fact, everything’s fair when it comes to creating public image. The artists utilizes every option to keep that coming.

So yeah, some artist are underrated, and good music can’t always make them popular, its what they can do apart from that to get maximum crowd.

Justin Bieber hasn’t been always so positively received by crowd. In his starting years, he was heavily criticized from his looks to his voice. Agree or not, it was the plus point for him either way. Girls like him and gradually, he improved his image. What he is now, is a result of years of hard work and persistence, no matter what people said.

Everyone gets what they plan on from day one. It’s their daily choice that shapes them. If Charlie Puth wishes, he can be linked in scandals, but he chose to keep his personal life private. Fans always tend to dig that, but when the artist doesn’t open up about that, fans divert their attention on their music.

It’s a long road of patience, and with consistency, he will be someday on top, a long way ahead of what he is today. In my views, this is the appropriate way.

Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore: Nonsensical, lacks magic!

Published

on

Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore

Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore first reviews praise Mads Mikkelsen’s ‘simmering intensity’, criticise ‘nonsensical’ narrative

Movie Name: Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore

Director

Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore Plot

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, though he’s unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The review embargo for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore has lifted, and initial reviews praise the film as an improvement over its immediate predecessor, but are still dubious about the need for a Harry Potter spinoff series. The Secrets of Dumbledore is the third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, following Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Like many Hollywood projects, Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore‘s release was significantly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was supposed to hit theaters in November 2021, but was pushed to April 2022. The film was also hindered by cast issues as both Depp and Ezra Miller, who plays Credence Barebones, dealt with personal issues behind the scenes. Despite this, production pushed through with controversial Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling co-writing the script with Steve Kloves, while director David Yates returns to helm the project after spearheading the first two Harry Potter films. Specific plot details for the film are still unclear, but it will continue to explore Dumbledore and Grindelwald’s complex relationship intertwined with a bigger arc in which the wizards navigate the World War II era.

With a 60% ‘fresh’ score on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore has fared slightly better than the second film, which has a 36% score, but is lower than the first movie, which has a 74% score. The site’s consensus reads: “Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore avoids some of the pitfalls that plagued its predecessor, but lacks much of the magic that drew audiences into the wizarding world many movies ago.”

Critics also praised Mads Mikkelsen’s performances as Gellert Grindelwald. Mikkelsen took over from Johnny Depp after the actor was asked to resign following his legal difficulties. It’s important to note that Ezra Miller, who will also star in Warner Bros’ upcoming The Flash movie, has been retained despite numerous run-ins with the law.

“Someone break out a real wand and put a spell on this series. It needs all the help it can get,” IndieWire’s Kate Erbland wrote. “It’s good-natured entertainment, though there is still something weightless and formless about the narrative,” the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw countered. Kevin Maher of the Times wrote, “Mikkelsen’s simmering intensity adds a new layer of menace to the character but also suggests a credibly torrid romantic history with Dumbledore.” Polygon’s Charles Bramesco wrote, “An evident attempt to right the ship has turned into a calamitous case of mission drift, as a property with no identity travels in nonsensical circles, looking for a sustainable new direction.”

Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore stars Jude Law, Eddie Redmayne, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams and others. The film arrives in Indian theatres on Friday, a week ahead of its US debut.

And The Oscar Goes  To…Not Always To The Deserving

Published

Oscars

Diversity has now become  pandemic  at the awards. 

If you are  black, or  Hispanic,gay  or  physically disabled, you stand   a  better chance of  winning an Oscar  . If you are  white, straight and  physically fit  there is a  chance  that you may be  bypassed, as  Benedict Cumberbatch was .   Of course he  was  better  in The  Power  Of  The Dog than Will Smith in King  Richard,who, mind you,  was  not  bad at all. Smith was in  great shape(and  we don’t mean that  in the physical sense) imbuing the  bully dad’s  character with  a  sense  of  empathy  that  was  moving.

Advertisement

But as far as bullies go  Cumberbatch’s  toxically masculine  cowboy in Jane Campion’s  The Power  Of  Dog was  a class apart.

So  was  Jessica Chastain in  The Eyes  Tammy Faye. This was  the  only surprise winner  this year at  the Oscars. Everyone presumed  Kristen  Stewart would win in this  category.Why? Because everyone  loves Princess Diana and  Kristen Stewart, in that order. I had found Stewart’s  Di act surprisingly stilted,  and considering the  selfconscious  slouch, tilted.

Advertisement

I have a huge problem with  Coda  getting the Best Picture Oscar. Pardon my political  incorrectness   but this is sheer  playing to the galleries.The story of  a deaf couple  and their  not-deaf daughter trying to come to terms with the  reality outside selfinterest was, at best, a heartwarming  drama. In a year where there  were  such magnificent  odes  to  socio-political introspection as  Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, Adam McKay’s  Don’t Look Up   and Jane Campion’s   The  Power  Of The DogCoda  seemed  a distant  poor  cousin  hobbling behind  the formidable  competition.  As far as till-deaf-do-us-part  cinema is concerned,  Sanjay Leela Bhansali did  it much better than  Khamoshi The Musical.

No.  Coda did  not deserve  the Best Picture  award. Neither  did the  grossly  overrated elegiac  Japanese  Drive My Car. Its Oscar for  Best International  Feature. A  sluggish slow-motion  saga  of self-actualization Drive My Car  is  no more than a sumtotal  of all its quirky components. A much better choice was  Jonas Poher Rasmussen’s Danish animation film Flee about two gay refugees seeking a commonground for asylum.

Advertisement

Drive  My Car  got it because, well, we  must not make  the Japanese feel  excluded.

don’t mind Troy Kotsur getting the Best Supporting Actor award for Coda. He is deaf. But he is also very  compelling as a possessive  parent. But   Ariana DeBose as  Best Supporting Actress for Westside Story! Really?  I am happy that a queer Hispanic woman(looks at how many boxes that ticks!)  got the award. But Ms DeBose, I am afraid, has done  nothing to her role as the  Anita in Steven Spielberg’s execrable awful  musical . Nothing in this  dud is awards-worthy. It’s like  honouring Kriti Sanon in Bachchan Pandey.

Advertisement

And why  on  earth did they  not give the Best Documentary award  to our Writing With Fire? It is  a far  superior  look at the rise-and-revolt theme  than  Summer Of Soul.

The Oscars this  year just about covered  all the niche communities,   from the gay to the   Hispanics. But  how long must these  niche harkatein continue for the sake of inclusiveness? Aren’t the awards somewhere  sacrificing    merit for minortyism?

Academy & Celebs reacts to Will Smith slap, He Apologised!

Published

Will Smith Slap

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has responded to the Will Smith-Chris Rock slap episode that has overshadowed everything else that happened at the 94th Academy Awards.

It said in a statement tweeted on its official account: “The Academy does not condone violence of any form.” Then went on to say: “Tonight, we are delighted to celebrate our 94th Academy Awards winners, who deserve this moment of recognition from their peers and movie lovers around the world.”

Here is what happened, Watch the Video

The 94th Academy Awards were all but hijacked by Will Smith who, shortly before he won the Oscar for Best Actor, punched and swore at presenter Chris Rock who made a joke about Will’s wife Jada Pinkett. In his emotional speech soon after, a tearful Will Smith apologised – although not directly to Chris Rock. ““I want to apologize to the Academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award for me. It’s about being able to shine a light on all of the people,” he said, “Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams. Love will make you do crazy things.”

In a loaded speech, Will Smith said, “I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people. I know to do what we do, you got to be able to take abuse. You got to be able to have people talk crazy about you. In this business you got to be able to have people disrespecting you. And you got to smile and you got to pretend like that’s okay.”

Will Smith also revealed what fellow Best Actor nominee Denzel Washington told him in the commercial break after the altercation with Chris Rock. ““Thank you, Dee. Denzel said a few minutes ago, ‘At your highest moment, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you,’” Will Smith said.

Chris Rock enraged Will Smith by making a GI Jane joke about Jada Pinkett, in apparent reference to her shaved head – Jada suffers from alopecia As she eye-rolled, Will went up on stage, slapped Chris, returned to his seat and yelled out, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*****g mouth.” Chris Rock told the audience, “Will Smith just smacked the shit out of me. It was a G.I. Jane joke. That was the greatest night in the history of television.”

Variety’ reports that while presenting the best documentary feature award, Rock, a well-regarded comic actor, joked about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, starring in ‘G.I. Jane 2’ because of her bald head. He was referencing the 1997 movie ‘G.I. Jane’ in which Demi Moore appears with a shaved head.

Pinkett Smith has been open about her struggles with alopecia, a medical condition causes aggravated hair loss. Smith reacted to the joke by going up on stage, separated from where he was sitting by a foot, and slapping Rock. He then returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f****** mouth!”

Smith won Best Actor for ‘King Richard’ following the incident and issued an apology in a tearful acceptance speech. The actor said: “I want to apologise to the Academy. I want to apologise to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award for me. It’s about being able to shine a light on all of the people.”

The point to be noted here is that Smith did not apologise to Rock, the target of his wrathful behaviour that has overtaken the coverage of the otherwise carefully crafted event.

What many thought was a comic improvisation when it took place on live TV, Will Smith’s slap on the face of Chris Rock, an emotion outburst against a joke made in poor taste about Jada Pinkett Smith’s lack of hair, drew a barrage of responses on Twitter.

The reactions, as to be expected, ranged from jokes and memes to serious reminders from the Hollywood community that people must not assault comedians just because their jokes don’t work.

Here’s a sample of what Hollywood stars told ‘Variety’ at the Oscars after-party:

Advertisement

Conan O’Brien, celebrity talk show host: “Just saw the Will Smith slap. Anyone have a late night show I can borrow just for tomorrow?”

Minnie Driver: “It was deeply personal. We were all privy to … emotions running really high. I really hope they will make up later. It’s hard to watch somebody’s pain like that.”

Record producer and celebrated rapper 50 Cent: “B!tch don’t you ever play with me. LOL”

Oscar-nominated (‘Judas and The Black Messiah’) identical twins, The Lucas Brothers: “Every comedian should post a Will Smith joke in solidarity with Chris Rock. I’m not. But every other comedian should.”

Advertisement

Colman ‘Les Hombres de Paco’ Domingo: “I thought he’s from West Philly, just like I’m from West Philly. We’re very passionate people.” (West Philly, for the uninitiated, is short form for West Philadelphia.)

‘Parks and Recreation’ star Billy Eichner said he thought he was “dreaming” when Will Smith took the stage and hit Chris Rock: “I thought it was a really great show until it took an odd, unexpected turn.”

Advertisement

Transgender Golden Globe-winning TV star Michaela Jae Rodriguez: “Sometimes human emotions happen. Sometimes human interactions happen. We can’t judge people based on their moments.”

Kathy Griffin, Emmy- and Grammy-winning comedian: “Let me tell you something, it’s a very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a comedian. Now we all have to worry about who wants to be the next Will Smith in comedy clubs and theaters.”

Advertisement

Film and television writer Kenya Barris: “There needs to be a clear distinction between work and home. We’ve gotten it confused.”

YouTube sensation Michael Ian Black: “So disappointing that Will Smith played Muhammad Ali but he couldn’t even knock out Chris Rock.”
