Tony Bennett Apologizes for 9/11 Remarks

Published

on

After saying some harsh remarks about 9/11 yesterday on the Howard Stern Show, Tony Bennett is now apologizing.

In a statement, the singer says,

“There is simply no excuse for terrorism and the murder of the nearly 3,000 innocent victims of the 9/11 attacks on our country…My life experiences — ranging from the Battle of the Bulge to marching with Martin Luther King — made me a lifelong humanist and pacifist, and reinforced my belief that violence begets violence and that war is the lowest form of human behavior.

“I am sorry if my statements suggested anything other than an expression of my love for my country, my hope for humanity and my desire for peace throughout the world.”

Bennett triggered some major controversy after saying that Americans were fundamentally behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  He said that, “They flew the plane in, but we caused it…Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop.”

Bennett just celebrated his 85th birthday, and has released a brand new album, Duets II, which also features a brand new duet with Amy WInehouse.

Celebrate The Last Day Of Pride Month With Megan Hilty’s Beautiful Rendition Of ‘The Rainbow Connection’

Published

🎶For all the lovers, the dreamers and LBGT.🎶

With only a few hours left to celebrate the magic of Pride month, the LBGTQ+ heavens opened up and sent down one more gift. Megan Hilty.

The Smash star gave a special Pride performance of the appropriately-themed classic “The Rainbow Connection” for ABC’s LA! Pride and of course she crushed it. The song was first sung by Kermit the Frog in the 1979 film The Muppet Movie and shares a message of hope and inspiration which obviously resonates strongly with the LBGTQ+ community. The only way Hilty’s rendition would be better is if she was covered in Muppet fur honestly.

The Broadway belter captioned the post with a sweet sentiment which read “Happy #pride🌈 kids! It doesn’t end today. Be proud of who you are every day of the year, and find your rainbow connection. 💕✨” And she’s right, every day should be filled with Pride!

Check out the moving performance below and Happy Pride y’all!

Here Are Some Of The Funniest Reactions To Kim Kardashian’s New Horse

Published

on

She ain’t no pedestrian equestrian.

Kim Kardashian West is so rich. How rich is she? Kim Kardashian West is so rich that even her horse has a perfectly laid hair do.

On Monday night, Kim shared a series of photos from North’s 7th birthday party which was celebrated “Wyoming style.” The cowboy themed party included such extravagances as a cowboy hat shaped cake, customized ATV’s and a race around the family’s go-kart track because of course they have a go-kart track on their ranch. None of those things received nearly as much attention as Kim’s tweet about North’s brand new “Freesian” horse however, and let’s just say the internet never disappoints.

The Tweet:

The spellcheck.

The probable.

The ingenuity.

The observant.

The relatable.

The sad truth.

The reason I love the internet.

The Trailer For The Aretha Franklin Biopic ‘Respect’ Will Leave You Singing Jennifer Hudson’s Praises

Published

on

She deserves all the R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Everything written below is riddled with bias because I love Jennifer Hudson and think she can do no wrong and if I had a genie’s lamp one of my three wishes would be to have her record the outgoing message on my voicemail. The other two wishes are not important right now.

The official trailer for Respect, the Aretha Franklin biopic, debuted during the BET Awards last night and it looks like we are all in for a treat. In the trailer, the incomparable Ms. Hudson is transformed into Aretha and soundtracks the preview with a powerful cover of “Respect.” The Oscar-winner’s voice is not the only notable talent worth mentioning. The trailer shows off Hudson’s acting chops too as she demonstrates Franklin’s growth from insecure songstress to the powerhouse Queen of Soul. The film’s description reads “following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, RESPECT is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.”

Hudson is joined with a cast filled with heavy hitters like Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Forest Whitaker, Mary J. Blige and Marc Maron. Now, the only bad thing I saw in the entire 90-second trailer was the release date. The film was originally expected to hit theaters in October but due to COVID-19 we now have to wait all the way until December! At least I know what the soundtrack to this year’s Christmas will be.

Check out the amazing trailer below!
