The “Jerome” singer also participated in a pandemic-era round of Vogue’s “73 Questions” series, in which she had the cameraman sanitize his hands before entering her house.

Lizzo says the body positivity movement has become “commercialized.”

In an interview with Vogue for their October cover story, the Grammy winner, who often shares messages about body positivity and self-love with her fans, explained why she believes the movement is being appropriated in the media and how it can improve.

“It’s commercialized. Now, you look at the hashtag ‘body positive,’ and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about,” said Lizzo. “I’m glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative.”

“What I don’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it,” she continued. “Girls … Read more

2020’s been a rough year for a lot of people, but GATTÜSO has been thriving! He’s been putting out a steady stream of releases, as well remixing R3HAB and Steve Aoki. If that wasn’t enough, he also signed new label and representation deals with Ultra and William Morris, respectively. Now he’s reunited with fellow New York based producers Disco Killerz for their latest single “I’ll Be the One.”

GATTÜSO and Disco Killerz previously teamed up for last year’s “Million Things.” They had so much fun working together that they couldn’t wait to get back in the studio again. While “Million Things” had more of a summer-y, radio friendly feel to it; “I’ll Be the One” is definitely more festival-minded with a beautiful progressive house drop and a little bit of a country twang with the vocals.

The opening of the track definitely has some Avicii “Wake Me Up” … Read more

Sally Potter is what you might call a do-it-all director. Throughout her 50-year career, the London filmmaker has written, produced, directed, shot, acted in and scored many of her own movies. She’s the ultimate auteur behind acclaimed indies like Brexit comedy The Party, the Tilda Swinton-starring Orlando and teen drama Ginger & Rosa.

Her latest project, The Roads Not Taken, is a sensitive think-piece based around the idea that there are alternative narratives of our lives, which continue to exist in the deeper reaches of our minds. Javier Bardem plays Leo, a man struggling with a neurological disease. He might not be able to communicate effectively with his daughter Molly (Elle Fanning), but the fantastical other timelines playing out in his head are a total joy to watch.

We caught up with Potter to find out where the unique idea for the film came from – and … Read more
