    UCLA professor Andrew Apter, a violinist in the Santa Monica Symphony, appeared on the Dennis Prager Show Monday to defend his call for musicians and members of the community to boycott a concert where Prager will be guest conducting the orchestra. Prager invited Apter onto the show after he and a fellow UCLA professor and violinist circulated a letter declaring: “Please urge your friends to not attend this concert, which helps normalize bigotry in our community.” After introducing his guest, Prager asked him if he would apply his liberal principles in all circumstances, such as the controversial 2008 visit of...

    Members of the media cheered during a screening of the racial horror-comedy film Get Out when the black protagonist murdered an all-white family one-by-one. Conservative film critic Armond White reported the "all-media" audience's reaction on Friday, in his scathing review of the film in National Review. The New York Film Critics Circle removed White from its group after he allegedly made insulting comments about black director Steve McQueen during an annual awards ceremony. He called McQueen an “embarrassing doorman and garbageman,” according to Entertainment Weekly. White compared the film's director Jordan Peele, of Comedy Central's "Key and Peele," to President...

    Thousands of defiant New Yorkers filled President-elect Donald Trump’s backyard Thursday on the eve of his inauguration for a star-studded, full-throated statement of protest. Joined by celebrities, government leaders and union organizers, angry protesters flooded Columbus Circle, Broadway and several blocks of Central Park West. “There are those who are working to divide us,” said “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon. “We are not going back. We’re not turning around. “Yes we’ve had a setback. But we can see it as a setback or we can see it as a challenge. And where there is a challenge there is...

    Trump’s inauguration is getting a dose of soul, with “Soul Man” singer Sam Moore joining the lineup of performers just days after Jennifer Holliday pulled out. Moore, one half of the R&B duo Sam & Dave, announced Tuesday he’ll be appearing at the “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” in Washington on the eve of the Jan. 20 inauguration. "As an American, I am honored to perform for President-elect Donald Trump," Moore said in a statement. "I was a participant in the civil rights movement and have seen many positive changes and advancement in my 81 years of living in...

    It sounds like Nicole Kidman is keeping her eyes wide shut when it comes to the many potential problems of a Donald Trump presidency. The Oscar-winning actress, who is a dual citizen of both the United States and Australia, caused some controversy this week when she encouraged Americans to accept and support the reality-TV-host-turned-politician now that he’s been elected. “I’m always reticent to start commenting politically; I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” Kidman explained in a wide-ranging interview with BBC Two about her film “Lion.” “So I just say, he’s now elected, and we...

    Last week, it was announced that the Rockettes would be performing at Donald Trump's inauguration, with the group's union—the American Guild of Variety Artists—mandating the dancers show up to the gig or lose their jobs. After considerable public outcry, Rockettes' management claimed they would not be required to smile and dance at America's gateway to Gozer after all—but in an interview with Marie Claire, one Rockette says she and her fellow dancers are still terrified that there will be more fallout. The Rockette, who wished to remain anonymous, told Marie Claire that though many of the women who declined to...

    “If anyone does do it, I hope that the check that they get is in the nine figures. Because it’s probably the last check they’re ever going to get,” Simon Renshaw tells TheWrap The Dixie Chicks’ manager says the title of one of their songs sums up why Donald Trump’s inauguration team can’t book A-list talent: Hollywood isn’t ready to make nice with the president-elect. Trump’s inaugural committee is still struggling to lock in A-list talent for his big festivities, according to Hollywood insiders, and even offering ambassadorships to anyone who can wrangle top singers. “If anyone does do it,...

    Every Thursday, the actor, comedian and producer Tim Heidecker hosts open-line “office hours.” Fans of his absurdist comedy, most of which runs on Time Warner’s Adult Swim network, call in to talk. On most days, they run the gamut from fans to superfans. But on Dec. 8, Heidecker took a call from Sam Hyde, the face of the comedy troupe Million Dollar Extreme. Its own Adult Swim series, “World Peace,” had been scrapped after a six-episode run. “Didn’t you want the show canceled?” asked Hyde. “Didn’t you campaign against our show?” For 12 minutes, live on Facebook, Hyde mocked Heidecker’s...

    Citing “overwhelming demand,” rock and roll musician Kid Rock recently started selling Donald Trump-themed apparel. One of three T-shirts tied to the president-elect depicts a post-election map with Republican states labeled “United States of America” and Democratic states labeled “Dumbf—istan.” Another features the words “God, Guns & Trump.” The third includes an image of Trump along with a crude message directed at his opponents. The hat, which is a spinoff of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” cap, reads “Make America Badass Again.” The items are available through Kid Rock’s online store.

    Fans of the Italian crooner are expressing displeasure at his reported decision to sing at President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Tabloid rumours are spreading of a Boycott Bocelli movement. The American soprano Aprile Millo has posted: He has no idea what he is endorsing. Remember he’s from a country that put up with Berlusconi. One freak show to another. I don’t buy his music I appreciate that he’s a nice man but I will absolutely boycott any Bocelli. How about an American tenor? Outsourcing already because there seems to be no American that wants to sing for him. #BoycottBocelli. Hundreds...
  • Actress Susan Olsen fired from radio show after homophobic rant (Says Trump is Right)

    Here's the story of a not-so-lovely lady. Actress Susan Olsen — who played the youngest daughter Cindy on "The Brady Bunch" — was just fired from her hosting gig on an L.A. radio show over a homophobic rant she sent over Facebook. The Donald Trump supporter co-hosted the show "Two Chicks Talkin' Politics" before she was dismissed by the station, according to reports. Olsen used a homophobic slur over and over again towards openly gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting, who decided to publish the once-private message publicly.

    "Dalton Trumbo was a socialist, but he loved being rich." So says Bryan Cranston, who stars in "Trumbo," out this week, and plays the screenwriter who went to prison with the Hollywood Ten in the time of Harry Truman. Actually, Trumbo was not a socialist. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Trumbo was a Stalinist, a hard-core Communist when the Communist Party USA was run from Moscow by the Comintern, agents of the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.

    As expected, Bill Maher has now weighed in on the non-troversy, that erupted this week when Jerry Seinfeld bemoaned the culture of political correctness on college campuses – and Maher went a step farther. Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work. The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the...

    A group of 40 British filmmakers and artists have sent an open letter to The Guardian on Monday calling for the Curzon and Odeon cinema chains to stop screenings of an Israeli film festival opening in London this week. Seret 2015, the London Israeli Film and Television Festival, will open Thursday with a gala screening at Bafta, followed by a number of screenings at the aforementioned theaters in the days to follow. Denying the boycott is about refusing to show films by individual filmmakers, the letter stresses cinemas should cancel the screenings because the Israeli state is “promoting this festival...

    Writing online, author Elisa Gabbert answered one of her reader's questions about whether he should stop writing because of his "privilege" of being white and male. An anonymous reader asked Gabbert: "I am a white, male poet—a white, male poet who is aware of his privilege and sensitive to inequalities facing women, POC, and LGBTQ individuals in and out of the writing community—but despite this awareness and sensitivity, I am still white and still male. Sometimes I feel like the time to write from my experience has passed, that the need for poems from a white, male perspective just isn’t...

    After news broke about the Rush Limbaugh Show getting kicked to the curb by WRKO-AM in Boston, Nielsen radio market #10, I received about a dozen emails asking when I was going to comment. So, here goes. First, understand the “business of business is business” and the “business of money is money.” And it’s money not a station’s Nielsen ratings that will ultimately determine your success or failure as a personality. For most of us, revenue and ratings are connected. But, that’s not true for everyone. After Rush Limbaugh stepped over the line with his Sandra Fluke comments a few...

    Psychology Today ^ | 3/22/10 | Satoshi Kanazawa
    It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them....

    The door is firmly shut to Bill Cosby's return to NBC, the network's top entertainment executive said Friday. 'That's safe to say,' NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Friday when asked if the network would ever again do a project with Cosby, who 30 years ago was the sitcom king with the network's 'The Cosby Show.' NBC's decision to sever ties with the 77-year-old comedian comes in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual assault against him, two lawsuits and a complaint to Los Angeles police earlier this week from a woman who says the comedian sexually abused her in...
