    In an interview with USA TODAY, John Legend opens up about racism and anti-blackness issues in the US. The artist was recently part of the Shining A Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America event in Los Angeles.

    Q: How do you think the history of race relations in the U.S. has shaped the current racial climate?

    A: This nation was founded with slavery as an integral part of the economy and the legal structure and the society, and we've never been able to shake the problem of race and racism since then. And, you know, every time people say we're in a post-racial era, reality comes and kind of shows them that we're not. And a lot of times, I feel like we don't want to deal with the root issues — what centuries of slavery and decades of segregation in housing and schools and decades of unequal treatment by the justice system has done.

    Q: You've spoken about how racism is codified on an institutional level, but was there a point where you experienced discrimination on an individual level?

    A: (In college) I used to get asked to show my ID to get in my car because they suspected I might be trying to steal my own car. And to me, in the story of my life, that's a minor thing, but for some people that interaction goes wrong and you read about them on the news. And the fact that black men have to deal with that level of suspicion at all times, no matter if they're Ivy League or what — you know I'm an Ivy League student going to school in West Philadelphia and they treat me like a criminal. That level of suspicion that's attached to all of us because of our skin color is a heavy burden to carry all the time. And because of that, there's often a lot of mistrust and there's a lot of resentment that we see boil over sometimes into these uprisings.

    After trying tarnish and explain Ava Duvernay's fabulous Apple Music ad in the most idiotic way possible,Iovine gave an apologetic statement saying,"We created Apple Music to make finding the right music easier for everyone -- men and women, young and old. Our new ad focuses on women, which is why I answered the way I did, but of course the same applies equally for men. I could have chosen my words better, and I apologize."
    Gayle King, whom hosted the original interview in CBS This Morning, defended his comments:
    "I feel so badly about this because we called Jimmy Iovine to unveil the commercial here and we were all sitting at the table and it's just hurtful I think that something he said is so taken out of context, because when you see the whole interview, that's not at all the case ... I get the point that he was making," said King. "Those of us who know him know that the last thing he is is sexist."

    Grace Jones was booked to appear with them on the Jonathan Ross show, but 1D arranged to have her appearance cancelled.

    Apparently 1D feared they would "look tame in comparison," a TV insider said. Apparently the 67 year old legend was not happy with her treatment and felt “it showed a complete lack of respect” from 1D.

    Instead of Grace, British comic Michael McIntyre joined One Direction. However another source says was a choice made by management not the bandmembers and was purely for practicial reasons.
    “Jonathan’s show was going to be a 1D special, with room for one guest, and management felt it was appropriate someone they were friends with should appear alongside them,".

    "Accidents take lives and destroy rivers. And yet they were able to profit from it. We expect them to be punished, severely punished and increasingly punished. So they never forget the disaster caused by them," Vedder said in Portuguese. VIDEO AT THE SOURCE.

    He said the band would donate the proceeds from their concert in Belo Horizonte to the victims of this environmental disaster.*

    They also played ‘I Want You so Hard’ by Eagles of Death Metal, in memory of the victims from the attacks in Paris.

    * He was referring to the collapse of two mining dams in Brazil’s mineral-rich state of Minas Gerais. The town of Bento Rodrigues was swept away by 50m cubic metres of toxic mud and now around 750 people are homeless, 8 are dead, 11 are still missing. Already the lack of oxygen and high temperatures caused by the pollutants has killed off much of the aquatic life along a 500km stretch of the river. The mudslide is expected to reach the Atlantic soon (btw, Minas Gerais is not a state on the coast, so yeah, the damage is going looong ways). More here
