In A Horror Movie About Hair, The Biggest Villain Goes Unseen

Since the early origins of the genre in the late 1800s, horror films have mostly been told through a very white lens. If people of color, particularly Black people, ever appeared in these stories, the running joke has been that we’re always the first to be picked off by the ghosts or axe murderers. However, the genre is slowly but surely evolving as Black filmmakers pull up a seat to the table to tell new stories. And these new ideas of horror often lean into something even more bone-chilling than the undead or an exorcism: a culture of anti-Blackness.

New Hulu film Bad Hair is no exception. The project, the latest brainchild of filmmaker Justin Simien (the mind behind both the 2014 movie and subsequent TV adaptation of Dear White People), attempts to tackle the consequences of anti-Blackness through a cultural examination of Black hair

Three people are dead and are millions without power as a result of Hurrican Zeta.

On Wednesday, the hurricane made landfall along the Gulf Coast as a Category 2 storm, where it left a path of destruction in its wake.

The hurricane, which has since been demoted back to a tropical storm since it hit, has destroyed homes and businesses in the Gulf Coast region, as it also knocked out power lines and flooded streets, according to The Weather Channel.

As of Thursday morning, millions of homes and businesses are without power across several states, per PowerOutage.us. In Georgia, just under one million customers are without power while Louisiana is showing more than 480,000 outages. Meanwhile, Alabama has more than 300,000 without power.

In addition to destruction and power outages, the storm has also killed three people.

According to The Associated Press, a 55-year-old Louisiana man was electrocuted

Tesla asks $500 to restore standard radio functions after prior $2,500 update

So, that’s $3,000 spent total, if you want your radio back.


Tesla

Tesla Model S and Model X owners who updated to the latest upgraded infotainment systems have lost the ability to connect to any AM, FM and SiriusXM radio stations. Losing these features seems odd after dropping $2,500, but Tesla has a solution: For another $500 you can have two of them back.

According to Tesla upgrade notes from the automaker, it will start rolling out the $500 package this quarter to owners of the older Model S and Model X vehicles that lost standard and satellite radio functions. The catch is there’s no way to restore AM radio capabilities, so you’ll only receive FM and SiriusXM for the money. The company explained the latest infotainment upgrade for the EVs is not compatible with the original radio tuner. The $500 gets you a new tuner and an antenna. In

Hayley Shares Statement Following Ex-Paramore Member’s Homophobic Comments

Hayley Williams is reminding fans what Paramore stands for after a former member’s homophobic social media post made the rounds.

A Facebook post from Josh Farro, whose exit from the band alongside brother Zac Farro was announced in late 2010, appeared via a screenshot on Twitter this week. The post appears to show the former Paramore guitarist saying in a public comment that homosexuality is “a perversion” akin to pedophilia.

After the screenshot was shared, it was noted by another Paramore fan that Josh Farro had previously expressed public support for Trump by sharing a post that praised the failed steak salesman for, among other things, being “against abortion.”

In a pair of tweets, Williams—though she did not mention Josh Farro by name—made her (and the rest of Paramore’s) stance quite clear.

“There’s a reason there are only three people left in Paramore,” Williams said. “Surprise, haters, it ain’t cause

Cameron Diaz Jokes She Has to ‘Live to Be 107’ After Having a Baby in the ‘Second Half of My Life’

Cameron Diaz is reflecting on taking a bit of a different chronological approach to motherhood.

The actress and Avaline entrepreneur opened up to Naomi Campbell about becoming a first-time mom at 47 last year on Tuesday’s episode of the supermodel’s No Filter YouTube series.

“A lot of people do it the other way around … they get married [and] have a family in their youth,” said Diaz, who turned 48 this past August — exactly eight months after she and husband Benji Madden welcomed their first child together, daughter Raddix. “I’m kind of doing it in the second half of my life.”

“The only pressure for me now is I have to live to be, like, 107, you know? No pressure!” the Charlie’s Angels star joked with a laugh, going on to call this time in life her “sweet spot” and the “happiest” she has felt thus far.

The new entry in the horror series will be the directorial debut of Patrick Wilson, who plays the haunted Josh Lambert in the Insidious films. Scott Teems wrote the script based on a story by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. The cast will include Wilson and Ty Simpkins, who plays Lambert’s son Dalton in the movies. The film will pick up 10 years after the last installment, as Dalton begins college.

“I’m honored and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious installment, which will provide an amazing chance to unpack everything the Lamberts went through a decade ago, as well as deal with the consequences of their choices,” said Wilson in a statement. “Directing the movie is both professionally and personally

Waukegan police shooting: Car chase preceded killing of Marcellis Stinnette in Illinois, video shows

“Hey, they just ran me over,” says the officer, who has his hand on Williams’ vehicle when she takes off.

The next clip begins with a squad car speeding toward Williams’ car. She pulls out in front of the police cruiser, passes another police car, red-and-blues flashing, and blows through a stop sign. She takes a right turn, drives onto the opposite shoulder and hits a telephone pole guy wire.

The officer tailing her exits his car and begins to order the pair to, “Get out of the f**king–” before an engine revs and seven shots are fired, followed by a crash. Because the police car’s dashcam is facing to the right of the shooting, the shooting is not captured and the officer’s orientation to Williams’ car is not clear.

Surveillance video shows, after the shooting, Williams drives backward into a building.

Authorities have said the officer opened fire after

John Fogerty Joins TikTok To Play ‘Fortunate Son’ As A Dig At Trump

In recent months, many musicians have repeatedly denied the Trump campaign’s requests to use their songs at rallies. Neil Young finally sued the campaign after Trump repeatedly played his music despite the singer’s protests, and Leonard Cohen’s estate got lawyers involved when the RNC used “Hallelujah” during their event. John Fogerty has similarly denied Trump permission to use his song “Fortunate Son” at various rallies, but the president continues to defy his cease-and-desist orders. Now, Fogerty has found a clever way to get back at the Trump campaign.

Fogerty joined TikTok in order to spread his message across generations. For his first video, the Creedence Clearwater Revival singer tapped his granddaughter to appear in the clip to offer insight into the meaning behind “Fortunate Son.” “Today, with school being online, I thought I would give a little history lesson,” she said. “My grandpa wrote a song called ‘Fortunate Son.’ He

Songbird Teaser Reveals First Look at KJ Apa in Michael Bay’s Pandemic Thriller

Movies can often be a wonderful form of escapism, something that has been very much needed for the past year, but Michael Bay is taking a different approach with Songbird, asking you instead to stare straight at the worst-case scenario of the world’s current goings on. We now have our first look at Songbird, with a poster, several images and a trailer teaser offering us an idea of the movie’s direction.

Songbird is set in 2024, and the ongoing situation has escalated in a way that only a Michael Bay movie can, with COVID-23 having mutated. The mortality rate is now over 50 percent and the virus is killing at an accelerated rate, to the point that the world has now entered its fourth year of lockdown, with infected Americans forced from their homes
