Why Are Stars Wearing White Roses to the Grammys?

Why Are Stars Wearing White Roses to the Grammys?
With all of the attention paid to the Time’s Up movement (a campaign started by more than 300 powerful figures in entertainment that works to combat sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry, which has started a legal defense fund to provide assistance to women in other industries) it stood to reason that the music industry would launch a similar initiative. After all, 2017 was a year that saw Taylor Swift win a lawsuit against a DJ who she claimed groped her, Kesha’s ongoing harassment lawsuit against Dr. Luke, and further abuse allegations against R. Kelly surface. (All have denied the allegations.

The Best TV Soundtracks of 2017

  • Indiewire
Music makes such a huge difference when it comes to enjoying TV’s top shows, on a level that goes well beyond a theme song. Great composers create an aural language that’s as tangible and essential as the actors or sets on screen, aided by music supervisors who discover undiscovered tracks as well as essential classic gems —without which the show’s most powerful moments would have no impact.

Even the Television Academy agrees: For this first time, this year the Emmy Awards handed out a prize for outstanding music supervision. Susan Jacobs won the award for the “Big Little Lies” episode “You Get What You Need.”

There were so many shows that changed the way music was used on television this year — whether it was Tom Petty’s “American Girl” becoming a shout of protest, an obscure Elvis Presley cover becoming one of our favorite tunes of the year,

Why Robin Thede’s Perspective on Late-Night Is Needed by More Than Black Women (Exclusive)

Why Robin Thede’s Perspective on Late-Night Is Needed by More Than Black Women (Exclusive)
Few women have successfully navigated late-night television, but with The Rundown with Robin Thede, Robin Thede is making it her mission to offer something almost unheard of in this space: the black woman’s perspective.

“You should want to know what a black woman feels; you get a bunch of Jimmy's opinions every other night. But with this show you're going to get politics and pop culture told from a different perspective,” says Thede, who after writing and performing on talk shows for Queen Latifah and Larry Wilmore and becoming the first African American female head writer of a late-night talk show (on Wilmore’s The Nightly Show) has stepped out on her own with her 30-minute weekly series on Bet.

In fact, there are two Jimmys -- Fallon and Kimmel -- among the roster of straight, mostly white men hosting some of late-night’s biggest talk shows, but only Thede, Samantha Bee of [link=tt
