Lennon Publicist Says Lennon NOT a Regan Supporter, Believed in “Imagine”

Published

on

We all thought we were finding out a new side of John Lennon yesterday, when Lennon’s former assistant, Fred Seaman, claimed that Lennon was “embarrassed” by the lyrics to “Imagine” and was a huge Reagan supporter.  Well now, someone else is coming forward to say that’s all bull.

According to TMZ, Lennon’s former publicist and close friend, Elliot Mintz, said that Lennon believed in “Imagine” completely and without doubt:

“From the time I met John in 1971, until the end, all of those things he expressed in ‘Imagine’ were part of his belief system until the last breath of his life…If you listen to the last recorded interviews that were done with John, you’ll hear him express in his own words … his own beliefs … which are virtually identical to the beliefs he held in ’71.”

And what does Mintz think about Seaman?

“Apparently his memory was refreshed at the same time his documentary’s release date was imminent … Fred Seaman has a distorted revisionist view of history.”

“Imagine” is such an iconic song, I don’t think any view Lennon could have had at the end of his life could affect it.  However, it is nice to know that he did believe what he inspired so many to believe.

Beyonce’s New Single May Earn Her An Oscar

Published

Take Beyonce’s beautiful new track – a tribute to Africa from The Lion King and throw in a pretty impressive history of Disney Best Original Song wins, and Queen Bey could be one step closer to an EGOT.

Beyonce has come close to an Oscar before for her song “Listen” from the movie musical “Dreamgirls.” The song was a powerful, heartfelt one. But the song “Spirit,” is an even more powerful anthem.

Disney’s previous Best Original Song wins include “A Whole New World,” from Aladdin, The Little Mermaid’s “Under the Sea,” and Frozen’s “Let it Go.”

The music video for Spirit just dropped, and it – and Beyonce herself – is stunning.

Lizzo Is An Icon In The Making – And Here’s Why

Published

on

Mirror, mirror on the wall don’t say it ‘cause we know Lizzo cute. And by cute I mean extremely talented, gorgeous and totally inspiring!

A few months ago I was watching The Ellen Degeneres Show when I witnessed one of the most fun, exciting and awe-inspiring performances I’ve ever seen. Lizzo popped onto the screen in a sparkly, pink getup and began singing what would become her big hit song, “Juice,” – I was immediately hooked (more like obsessed). During this performance she also jammed out on her flute alongside her plus-sized backup dancers and suddenly I knew I had been changed forever. I did some more research on the rapper/singer and found out I had been sleeping on this gem! Lizzo has been doing bad all by her damn self for years, having already released two albums in the past. I am suddenly mad at every single person who neglected to tell me to jump on the Lizzo train sooner! If you’re like me and need a bit of catch up, I’m going to break down exactly why you need to know this icon in the making.

You can throw a stone in any direction and hit a triple threat nowadays. Lizzo’s brings talents we have yet to see in the mainstream music industry.

If singing, rapping and dancing make Lizzo a triple threat, what does flute playing making her?!? A STAR THAT’S WHAT! Lizzo has displayed her abilities as a talented flautist, which is not an instrument you would necessarily think of in conjunction with the rap genre making this talent all the more extraordinary. Lizzo even used her flauting skills to compete (and defeat IMO) with Ron Burgundy. Not Will Ferrell, but Ron Burgundy.

Oh, and she can also twerk while playing the flute. 

As if playing the flute wasn’t impressive enough, Lizzo can also twerk while playing. I really hope some high school kid is deciding to take band just so he/she can flutwerk their way around campus like their fav flautist, Lizzo.

Lizzo uses her platform to inspire and raise up everyone around her.

Lizzo uses her voice for more than just creating fire music, ya know. She uses her platform to defend the belief that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Her Twitter is filled with positivity and strong messages about acceptance.

 

Uhm…she’s straight up gorgeous. 

We cant forget to mention that Lizzo is a straight up beauty queen. She is known to switch up her look but I’ve never seen a bad pic of this queen. To solidify my point, she is now officially the first, plus sized black woman to be featured in Playboy magazine!

Move over Avenger’s, Lizzo has been in a comic book too!

Ok indulge the nerd in me on this one…Lizzo was even featured in a comic book!!! That’s right, she has become so influential that even Marvel comics wanted a piece of the Lizzo-pie. Check out this shout-out in Unstoppable Wasp #4!

 

So now that you have become as obsessed as I have, you are probably wondering how you can get even more Lizzo in your life. Well lucky for you, her new album dropped TODAY! Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is available anywhere you listen to music and let me tell you, YOU WILL LOVE IT. The album is varied and showcases all of Lizzo’s incredible range with some songs being upbeat and funky, and others being slowed down and heart wrenching. For a taste of what to expect, click below to listen to the title track of the album. If the new album still doesn’t satisfy the hunger for more Lizzo, she’s also on tour! You can click here for more info on tour dates.

Oh Lizzo…you are most definitely 100% that bitch.
