BRITNEY SPEARS SHOWS HER SUPPORT FOR LGBT COMMUNITY AT THE OLYMPICS
The 2018 Winter Olympics has been on everyone’s radar the past few weeks, but what has recently caught everyone’s eye is Britney Spears and her involvement in the games. No, she isn’t competing but, she has openly shown her support of Team USA’s LGBT members through social media. Spears reached out to ice skater Adam Rippon and skier Gus Kenworthy stating that she is a big fan and showing her support. Kenworthy brought this positive attention to the athletes just a few weeks ago when he tweeted “We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it.”
With her constant support of the LGBT community in past years, it was no surprise that the pop singer voiced her support and love for the athletes. Kenworthy and Rippon eagerly responded with both shock and excitement, showing their mutual respect and support for Spears herself.
DRAKE DROPS "GOD’S PLAN" VIDEO
One of the most unexpected and incredible drops so far this year has been Drake’s new song, "God’s Plan" from the Scary Hours EP. The song dropped a few weeks ago, and it has already taken the nation with it rising to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Scary Hours set the record for most streams in only one day on Spotify in the United States. Now to add even more excitement to the mix, Drake has just released the "God’s Plan" music video, and everyone is going crazy over it. The video showcases Drake traveling to Miami and gifting large donations to different people. At the end of shooting the video, the rapper confirmed to have donated $996,631.90, which was the entire music video budget. Drake later announced that the music video was "the most important thing I have ever done in my career."
KENDRICK LAMAR AND TDE SEND KIDS LIVING IN HOUSING PROJECTS TO SEE BLACK PANTHER
Kendrick Lamar and TDE collaborated with Interscope Records, and were able to send 1,000 kids from housing projects in LA to see Black Panther on Saturday. The artists felt that with the movie being in such high demand, it was necessary for children who are living in the Watts housing projects to be given the opportunity to see a free viewing of the movie. TDE has brought artists we know and love to the music scene like, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and others which is why the two decided to carry out this project together. The L.A. Unified School District is also taking part in making this possible by providing transportation to the theaters. The TDE producer of the Black Panther movie soundtrack stated, “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios, and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”
