VIDEO: Rihanna Talks That Talk on SNL

I wish they showed Saturday Night Live here in the UK because Rihanna gave two great performances on it last night! Luckily, the two videos are online and here they are, via NBC 🙂 Rihanna performed Talk that Talk, as well as her new single Where Have you Been. Rihanna also released the video for the track this week, and it can be seen in YouTube.

Enjoy!

Make Joseph Kony Famous.

Joseph Kony is a war criminal. As head of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, he has bought violence to large part so the country, resulting in the displacement of over 2,000,000 people. Kony is wanted and indicted with 33 counts of war crimes, 12 of which are crimes against humanity, including murder, enslavement and using rape as a weapon of war.

Kony is indiscriminate. Men, women and children have all been murdered, injured, raped, kidnapped and forced to fight by Kony’s forces. In fact, over 66,000 children have been taken from their homes, their families and their safety and forced to fight for him and the LRA.

Joseph Kony is also classed by the United States as a Global Terrorist, and they have sent a small task force of 100 troops to Uganda to help combat against the LRA.

The facts have always been there. The dead have always been counted, children have always been reported as missing, yet Kony has been able to continue committing crimes against the human race for nearly 30 years.

Now, in 2012, enough is enough. Invisible Children, an activist group which aims to make the world aware of the crimes being committed in Uganda, are spearheading a campaign to make Joseph Kony famous. They hope that if his crimes are famous, more will be done to capture him and to prevent the LRA from committing more crimes.

Invisible Children have made a short documentary about Joseph Kony, his crimes and their impacts on children, as well as how you can help. You can watch the video below, on YouTube, and you can find out more at www.invisiblechildren.com

Please share, tweet, blog, post and link this video everywhere, so the message to #STOPKONY can be seen my as many people as possible.

Video: Disgustingly Racist woman in #MyTramExperience Arrested

I’m incredibly pleased to find out that the disgustingly  racist woman in the #MyTramExperience video has been arrested. Trying to argue against a such moronic, ignorant woman would be futile, but it’s all people on the train surrounding the woman dealt with the situation in a fantastic way.

Although people like this should be exposed and rightfully prosecuted, it’s sad that this video will now be seen around the world, possibly leaving people to believe that these views are widespread in Britain.

As a white, British male I want people to know that most people in our country are disgusted at the way this individual behaved, and our diverse multicultural society is celebrated and loved.

Lady Gaga releases an alternative You and I video!

Mother Monster has surprised fans on twitter my releasing a second video for her current hit, You and I! The two-minute promo is a simple, yet beautiful, video shot in black and white. Little Monsters also have FOUR more videos coming, as Gaga has announced that she made five fashion videos alongside INEZ+VINOODH (I don’t quite know who or what that is, but the video is cool!)

Rihanna Angry as BBC Censors “S&M” single

After the BBC announce Rihanna’s provocative new single “S&M” under the title “Come On”, Rihanna blows her top on twitter after finding out from a fan. When tweeted by a fan asking why the single’s title had changed, RiRi replied “Are you f**king kidding me???”

The Only Girl in the World replied “Absolutely NOT!!!” when another fan asked if she approved of the name change.

The re-name happened when the Sunday chart was announced on BBC Radio 1, and comes after the video for the track was banned in 11 countries. Moreover, the BBC has refused to play the track, with provacative lyrics including “Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me” before 7pm.

The song joins the list of songs banned by teh BBC at some point, including the ban of “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood” and cutting of lyrics from  “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues.
