Nicki Minaj swore this morning via Twitter that she was not throwing shade at Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech during Sunday night’s Bet Awards, and then continued to dig herself into a deeper hole. First, she takes the media to task for “putting words into her mouth,” and then starts stressing again that she respects women who write their own songs, like Lauren Hill and Missy Elliott. She brings up that she has congratulated Azalea on her success with fancy (which she totally has. Read about that here). The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us! — PillsNPotions (@Nickiminaj) July 2, 2014 I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do.

Swedish director Göran Hugo Olsson, who many will know from his archival triumph The Black Power Mixtape, returns from Sundance and Berlin at a rather opportune moment to present his new film, Concerning Violence. Many incendiary debates have escalated over Boko Harām and the ‘BringBackOurGirls’ campaign: one side arguing that awareness and education are the primary steps to success, while others brush off such digital profile-raising as a form of clicktivism (and at worst further Western interference into African affairs).
There was one period in African history when this meddling was irrefutable: Apartheid. To excavate it, Olsson once again mines the Swedish archives to magic up some gorgeous 16mm footage from all across Africa, predominantly shot between the 1960s and ‘70s. With an introduction by postcolonial theorist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and utilising extracts from Frantz Fanon’s newly-revived (at least in the mainstream) text The Wretched of the Earth, this »

“Can we talk about how terrifying the words ‘personality test’ are?” asked actress Yael Stone — whom you may know best as red-lipped, self-deluded Lorna Morello on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black – right before sitting down to take EW’s very own pop culture-slanted quiz.
Luckily, the bubbly Aussie passed our “test” with flying colors — waxing rhapsodic about the torch she still carries for Michael Landon’s character on Little House on the Prairie, singing Lauryn Hill songs from the very depths of her soul, and the sci-fi touchstone she saw way too young.

Glee, Season 5, Episode 18, “Back-Up Plan”
Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Directed by Ian Brennan
Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on Fox
Glee season five has been all about Rachel bouncing back and forth between legitimately nice and completely intolerable. Finally, after years of scrapping for solos in Glee Club, her lifelong goal has come true. She starts on Broadway while just barely in college at her dream school, playing the lead role in an iconic revival. Oh and did we mention it’s the lead role, the title role, Fanny Brice, the Funny Girl herself? The character who is essentially Rachel Berry’s spirit animal? You guessed it, she gets bored after a month and attempts to throw the whole production under a giant bus.
The cinematography during “Wake Me Up”, originally by One Republic, works well. Particularly memorable are the camera angles shot through the flowers, showing the passage of »
