Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

Der „Jennifer-Lawrence-Effekt“ & Hollywoods absurde Erwartungen an Frauen

Jennifer Lawrence ist wieder da. Die Oscar-Gewinnerin, die einst Hollywoods selbstironisches Kronjuwel war, ist in den vergangenen Jahren ein bisschen in der Versenkung verschwunden. Jetzt tritt sie langsam zurück ins Rampenlicht – angefangen mit ihrem neuen Film Don’t Look Up. Und im ersten großen Interview seit ihrem bewussten Rückzug aus der Öffentlichkeit wird klar: Die Last der öffentlichen Meinung hat ganz schön an Lawrences Selbstbewusstsein gekratzt. „Ich glaube, alle hatten mic...

The musical genius of Tommy Tune: “old plus old equals new”

From the beginning, Tommy Tune was pulled as if by centrifugal force toward dance and the Broadway musical. He was taking dancing lessons by the age of five, but his early ambition to be a ballet dancer was abandoned when he shot up in height during his teenage years. He later joked about his extreme height, saying, “Sometimes, instead of thinking of myself as six-foot-six, I tell myself I’m only five-foot-eighteen.” Nevertheless, he made a smooth transition from staging backyard musicals in his...

With Silk Sonic, Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Set Their Time Machine To ’70s Funk & Soul

Bruno Mars is a pastiche artist. That’s just who he is. He is very good at it, too — a born entertainer, a gifted songwriter, a master of period detail rivaling any Hollywood professional. Over the past decade, Mars has carved out a space as mainstream pop’s official retro ambassador. You are not ever going to find him pushing music forward, but he can be counted on to show up every couple years with expert facsimiles of bygone genres, overtly fun and catchy music bound to get wedding dance floo...

„Like A Virgin“: Wie der Jungfrauen-Mythos Britney Spears & Co. zerstörte

Es war das erste Mal seit 13 Jahren, dass Britney Spears in der Öffentlichkeit über ihre langwährende Vormundschaft sprach. Im Laufe des 24-minütigen Statements erzählte der Popstar klar und leidenschaftlich davon, wie sie seit über einem Jahrzehnt unter diesem Vertrag litt – wie sie von ihrem Vormund, ihrem Vater Jamie Spears, dazu gezwungen worden sei, sieben Tage pro Woche durchzuarbeiten, gegen ihren Willen Lithium einzunehmen und sogar eine Spirale zu tragen, obwohl sie sich weitere Kinder ...

Camp Turns 10

Donald Glover closes his first album as Childish Gambino by telling an embarrassing story about oversharing his feelings to a crush as a 13-year-old. He then explains the lesson: “Make it all for everybody” — reveal everything about yourself, even if that leads to shallow relationships. The preceding 55 minutes of sex boasts and punchline verses, written from the perspective of a 27-year-old rising Hollywood star, aren’t just rap shit. They’re also a defense mechanism.

Will Smith: now Hollywood royalty, the star’s rise has been far from painless

From Fresh Prince to King Richard, personal upsets have so far failed to derail his childhood goal to be the world’s biggest film starThere’s a seemingly offhand quality which is central to the appeal of Will Smith: an innate magnetism and loose-limbed, casual coolness. But the career path from teenage rap artist to TV actor to superstar status was anything but effortless; it was the result of a self-described “psychotic” work ethic and meticulous, perhaps even obsessive, planning.For a while, a...

Elvis’ Three Appearances on The Ed Sullivan Shows: Watch History in the Making and from the Waist Up (1956)

Oh, to be in the studio audience of CBS’ Television City in Hollywood on September 9th, 1956, to see Elvis Presley’s gyrating pelvis rocket him to superstardom on The Ed Sullivan Show. His appearance made television history, but 60 million home viewers were left to fill in some major blanks, as the rising heartthrob was filmed from the waist up whenever he was in motion.

West Side Story at 60: the dazzlingly modern musical that’ll be hard to beat

With Steven Spielberg’s remake almost out, the 1961 original still feels thrillingly contemporary, a tough act to followIt’s the opening credits that do it right away. Following three eerie whistles over a black screen, West Side Story explodes into a full screen of poster-paint colour – shifting from orange to red to magenta to royal blue – as Leonard Bernstein’s four-minute overture brassily clatters into action. Over the colour, a stark design flourish: seemingly random brigades of parallel v...

Adele: Easy on Me review – reliably, relatably Adele-esque

(Columbia)The first single from her divorce-focused new album 30 is quintessential Adele: piano, romantic recrimination, and soaring vocal workAdele’s statement announcing the release of her fourth album was published on social media earlier this week. In it, the singer doesn’t talk much about music, more about her emotional state during the album’s making, provoked, one assumes, by the breakdown of her marriage: “absolute mess and inner turmoil … consumed by grief”. She compared the album she m...

Was uns die spannendsten Looks der Met Gala über „American Fashion“ verraten

Es war der zweite Montag im September – und in jedem anderen Jahr hätte das nichts weiter als einen üblichen Wochenneustart bedeutet. 2021 stand an diesem Datum aber das wohl größte Fashion-Event des Jahres im Kalender: die Met Gala. Nach 16 langen Monaten ohne prominente Badezimmer-Fotos und Star-Selfies auf der Treppe – und, nicht zu vergessen, die wohl extravagantesten Mode-Ensembles überhaupt –, fanden die „Oscars of Fashion“ gestern endlich wieder statt. Und wer nicht auf der Gästeliste von...

Dune review – blockbuster cinema at its dizzying, dazzling best

Denis Villeneuve’s slow-burn space opera fuses the arthouse and the multiplex to create an epic of otherworldly brillianceDune reminds us what a Hollywood blockbuster can be. Implicitly, its message written again and again in the sand, Denis Villeneuve’s fantasy epic tells us that big-budget spectaculars don’t have to be dumb or hyperactive, that it’s possible to allow the odd quiet passage amid the explosions. Adapted from Frank Herbert’s 60s opus, Dune is dense, moody and quite often sublime –...

Alles, was du vor einem Hand-Tattoo wissen solltest

Halsey. Miley Cyrus. Ariana Grande. Das sind nur ein paar der vielen Promis, die ihre Tattoos unter anderem an den Händen tragen – und während der Trend in Hollywood (und demnach auch auf Instagram) immer mehr zum Hand-Tattoo geht, überlegst du vielleicht selbst, dir dort ein bisschen Tinte unter die Haut piksen zu lassen. Vorher solltest du aber einiges wissen. Zuerst mal ein bisschen zur Geschichte der Hand-Tattoos: Einige archäologische Funde, unter anderem eine 3.000 Jahre alte Mumie, lasse...

‘It was the happiest time’: The Beach Boys on their strange second coming

They helped define the 60s, but were hopelessly uncool as the 70s began – and Brian Wilson was unravelling. The band discuss the masterpieces they made against the oddsIn the 1960s, the Beach Boys staked their claim as the US’s most popular band, as their dazzling, harmony-drenched songs about surfing, cars and California Girls epitomised the American dream. So, at the end of the decade, when leader and principal songwriter Brian Wilson – who had recently spent several months in a psychiatric ho...

Machine Gun Kelly And Mod Sun Are Making A Feature Film — And Pete Davidson Is In It, Of Course

Songwriter Diane Warren talks first-ever album made with Celine Dion, John Legend and Darius Rucker

Diane Warren is one of the most prolific and successful songwriters in music, though her name isn’t as widely known as the artists for whom she’s written nine No. 1 hits or the movies for which her songs have earned a dozen Oscar nominations. So why now, at 64, did she make “The Cave Sessions Vol. 1,” and release her first-ever album? In a weird way, John Legend is responsible. Songwriter Diane Warren has written nine songs that hit No. 1 on the charts. She has been nominated 12 times for th...

Premature Evaluation: Sturgill Simpson The Ballad Of Dood & Juanita

Sturgill Simpson likes to tell stories. The Kentucky-bred singer-songwriter made his name on old-fashioned country music, a style that has historically lent itself to narrative songwriting. Having fully established himself as a skillful, somewhat subversive force within the genre — the kind that sings about drug-induced visions of turtles, wins Grammys, and inspires rhapsodic praise from certain kinds of authenticity fetishists — he took a real-deal Tokyo-drifting left turn with 2019’s Sound & F...

Hear 45 Minutes of Funky Old Soundtracks from 1960s-70s Japanese Films & TV Shows

The life of a Japanese film composer in the 1960s and 70s was very different from their American counterparts. “For Hollywood movies, there is a three-month period to write the music after the film has been finished,” says legendary film and television composer Chumei Watanabe. When Watanabe first began working for Shintoho studios, “at first, they gave us five days. Of course, it would usually be shortened…. One time, there was a Toei movie being filmed in Kyoto.

Popular Elvis Song of the 50s

George R. Poulton wrote this song in 1861 and called it "Aura Lee." It first became famous as the class song for the West Point graduating class of 1865. Its popularity was hardly short lived. In the 20th century, it achieved Hollywood stardom in no less than 3 films: "Come and Get It" of 1936, 1952's "The Last Musketeer," and 1955's "The Long Grey Line." Elvis Presley's adaptation became "Love Me Tender," and his recording held the #1 position for 5 weeks. The rest is history! Love...

3 Topics You Need To Learn About Fast As A Parent

If you were to take the Hollywood message about childbirth and parenthood at its word, every prospective parent would head to the birthing room with innocent awe and excitement. They would all return home, blissed out with love for their new child. And then, weeks later, they’d keel over from exhaustion because they didn’t expect a new born baby to be so much hard work. In reality, every prospective parent knows that bringing a new life into the world is going to present challenges. We’re read...
