The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
This DIY Deadpool Pizza Is Pepperoni Perfection.
Chances are, if your friends are anything like my friends, everyone has yet to shut up about the new 'Deadpool' movie - so much so that I think it's safe to say that this month was definitely a Deadpool takeover. And thanks to this epic Deadpool pizza tutorial, your love affair with all things Deadpool is still officially far from over. If you thought his thing for good food begins and ends with chimichangas, think again. Here's what you need to make a Deadpool pizza of your own: - Pizza dough (The vlogger in the YouTube embedded below will show you how to make dough from scratch, or you can be like me and just buy the premade stuff.) - 1 jar of pizza sauce (I think so long as you've got at least a cup, it's enough.) - 1 package of shredded mozzarella (The 16-ounce package, so roughly 2 cups.) - 2 - 4 slices of mozzarella (This is for the eyes. Feel free to switch it up with provolone!) - 1 can of sliced black olives (I know some of you don't like olives, so if you can think of an equally delicious substitute to create his trademark black eyes, sub it here.) - 1 package of sliced pepperoni (Roughly 6 - 8 ounces should do!) Ready? Here we go. So first, you're going to preheat your oven to 450F. Then it's time to get that dough nice and spread out on your pizza pan, using a spoon to spread the pizza sauce all around the center of the pie. (Just, you know, leave the ends alone so you have a crust later. Pizza without crusts are super weird.) Next, you want to cover all of your sauce with some shredded mozzarella cheese. Don't skimp because this is going to help the pepperoni stay fixed to the pizza when you bake! Now it's time to layer on all of that pepperoni. Starting from the outside, work your way inward in a circular motion, laying the pepperoni down slice by slice. (If this isn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, you're in the wrong card. Dat pepperoni.) So in the video, she uses a teardrop-shaped cookie cutter to the primary shape before slicing it down the middle to create two eyes. I know I don't have teardrop cookie cutters at home, and you probably don't either, so feel free to use a knife to (carefully!) create the shape yourself! Now it's time to use the sliced olives to finish Deadpool's face. Keeping everything looking as symmetrical as possible during this step is key. Lay down your slices of olive similarly to how you laid down your pepperoni, and FINISH HIM!!! Throw him (gently) into the oven, and leave him there for about 10 - 15 minutes - or until he's nice and golden. Don't worry. It's Deadpool. He can take the heat. And there you have it: a Deadpool pizza - warm and gooey, just how you like him! For more specific instruction, check out Rosanna Pansino's full Nerdy Nummies tutorial in the YouTube above! And for more viral vids, follow my YouTube Nation collection! So who's going to try this out this weekend? (And more importantly, who's going to save me a slice?!)
Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
History Continued
And you were 21 years old, you were just leaving childhood. The human brain does not fully develop until age 25. Then the decision-making part of my brain still needed training. There was no one to tell me what to do. You became the number one star in this business. Didn't he have royalties or rights to get some kind of reward for your popularity? None. None at all. In the video of the hijab, the most popular, three young people participate. You were one of them and you wore the Islamic scarf. You had to know how provocative that was. I literally told them that they will kill me. Why didn't you say you weren't going to do it? Intimidation. I was afraid. No one forces you to have sex, but I was still scared. Have you ever felt nervous about saying something in a restaurant when the food is not right and the waiter comes and asks "how is everything"? I was intimidated. Was nervous. You say that the concept of consent makes no sense in the dynamics of power between the men who control the porn industry and a young 21-year-old actress like you. Absolutely. When there are four white producers in the room and you tell them something like that, and everyone laughs, it's devastating and makes you not want to talk or say anything. It is the same when you sign your contract, you know the president and CEO of the company in the room, he is with you waiting for you to read it and when you are reading it you do not understand anything that is written, because you are very nervous, because people make you He is watching. When you left the filming set at the end of that particular movie, did you know deep down that this was going to be a disaster for you? He didn't hit me until the next day, because the adrenaline was still very high. But immediately after its launch, my whole world was shattered. The reason I thought it was good to do porn was because I thought nobody would find out. There are millions of girls who record themselves having sex and do things like that, and nobody knows their names. No one knows who they are. No one recognizes them that way. I wanted to do it as my dirty little secret, but it exploded in my face. Khalifa says he assumes 100% responsibility for having participated in the porn industry, which he considers today to be a mistake. From the point of view of filmmakers and distributors, it was a triumph. They said I was like lightning that fell into a bottle. The reality for you was that your face was known throughout the world as the porn star wearing hijab and suffered threats. Oh yeah. I will not say about EI, because I don't think everyone who is very involved with EI has a Twitter account. They put a picture of me on someone who was beheaded and said ... I don't know exactly what they said. They said something that would be next. I can't imagine how alone you must have felt at that moment, because you couldn't discuss this with your family. No. It was scary. But my mechanism to deal with these things is humor. So my answer was: "Well, as long as you don't cut my tits. They are worth a lot of money." You were 21 years old. Now five years have passed. How much personal responsibility do you assume for what you did? The 100%. I made the decision. Of course the industry is imperfect and we must do something to protect other girls so they don't fall into the same trap as me. But it was my choice. Going out of business when that viral video was so well known and associated with something so provocative, and you received the threats ... Was it a very quick decision for you? I wouldn't say very fast, because I was still nervous. I didn't know how to react to that. In fact, I summoned them all at a meeting a month later and I had a resignation letter for each one and told them about my feelings. They tried to convince me to stay and they told me that all this would happen and that I was safe, that I was exaggerating. Then these guys saw you frankly as a money machine. Absolutely. Do you think you suffer some type of post-traumatic stress from this experience? Yes. And I think it is activated mainly when I go out because I feel that people can see through my clothes and I feel very ashamed and it makes me feel like I have lost all my privacy. Because I am on a Google search. The suicide of porn actress August Ames at the end of 2017 led some female colleagues to protest their situation and the pressures they face. You have no right to delete the images, even if they are deeply personal to you. It is very difficult. It is. This story is your story. But frankly, it's also the story of other porn actors and actresses. Honestly, I started to realize that p agoOco. People started communicating with me. My manager checks emails and when he receives things like that, he filters them and sends them to me. Reading the words of some of these girls who have been trafficked and forced into pornography, all these stories of girls whose lives have been ruined (...) makes me feel that it was good to start talking and to do this interview. Consecutive deaths of 5 porn actresses who set off alarms about the harsh conditions of the adult entertainment industry in the US There is a school of thought that says that in many countries young people are so exposed to pornography that it is changing the way men and women interact. What do you think? Of course it affects relationships. Porn addiction is very frequent. The things that men see in the videos are expected of women in their lives, and that is not the reality. Nobody is going to be so perfect, nobody will do those acts on a Wednesday night. If you could talk to that 21-year-old girl, Mia Khalifa, walking down the street in Florida, stopped by the boy who said, "You are beautiful, lovely. I can work with you," what would you tell her to do today? There is a pepper spray of gas in your bag for a reason. Use it. Run!

How Burnt Reminded You That You Could Have Been Better
You're sitting at your desk. Framed photographs are pressed against the wall behind it; mother, father, brother, wife, and kid, all smiling at you in perpetuity. And you stare at them smile at you for a couple minutes before you decide you should really get back to work and by get back to work, you really mean that you should start to procrastinate. During the hour you spend stealing time from the company you work for, you check the latest movie news on the blogs you've bookmarked. And one of them grabs your attention. It feels like an ethereal hand extended from the screen and put you in a Muay Thai clinch and said, click here, click here. So you did. And the next two minutes you watched Bradley Cooper struggle with being a really good chef that's trying to succeed but at the same time he's very complex because he has addiction issues. And you remember, the only complexities worth exploring are ones that are surrounded by drug abuse. And as you "watched" the trailer (watched is in quotation marks because you are reading and you can't really hear the tone of my voice*) you remembered your youth. Remember the way you'd sit on your father's bed, wrapped in a bed sheet (you looked like a ghost), watching all the cooking shows on PBS. You wouldn't blink. You'd awkwardly tap the flat mattress in front of you, looking for a bowl of potato chips your mother had given you and asked you not to spill but here you are knocking your fingers left and right almost slapping the bed in an angry type of hunger until you finally submerge your hand into a bowl of Sour Cream & Onion Ruffles. You loved learning how to cook even though you never put it into practice (you were only probably, maybe 5 or 6 years old). Every night for a week, you'd sit on a stool next to the stove while your mother or your father would cook. And you'd yell at them to pretend the stained, yellow tile in front of them was a camera or a studio audience. You'd ask them not to tell you how to cook, but to tell "them". And now. You know you won't cook when you get home. You still haven't learned. You'll order something the same way you do every Monday night because you're too tired, too exhausted from work**. That's the thing, too. You still dream of what it would have been like if you pursued your dream instead of something that literally anyone can do. You think about what it would be like to actually, truly, and honestly create something with your hands instead of use them to tap plastic buttons connected to another piece of plastic that you have to stare at for 8-10 hours a day. You start to daydream and think about the way you'd call yourself an artist. The same way Bradley Cooper wants his restaurant to be an experience, you imagine your food to be an experience and not just something your friends and family inhale for nourishment. It's not just nutrients, it's a story, a song, a musical, a movie, a novel. You think about that, long and hard. You picture having your on FOX reality show where you tell young people how to cook properly and how to be artists in the kitchen. You quickly fall back out of your memories. The warm embrace of the bed sheet around your body, the fuzz on the CRT television, and the way those potato chips crunched and slid down your throat, they're all gone. You're back in the office now. The wall in front of you, covered in frames, is cold and uninviting. You wish you could go back, like all men and women do when they find themselves working a menial job. You look around your cubicle and there's Kevin, behind you, making another dumb, slightly racist joke and telling the same banal story about his weekend you've heard every other Monday this month. You look down at your hands and think about what you haven't created and how you won't change because you aren't as young as you used to be and you don't have the freedom you used to have and you do wish that you did and knew better back then but honestly, you didn't and you never will. All you really know is that nothing will change and that you will watch Burnt when it's in theaters on October 23rd, 2015. *The sound of my voice is an intriguing thing. In that instance, I said the word "watched" as if it was a slow dance. But not a particularly good slow dance. It was the first slow dance you've ever experienced. You remember, right? You didn't know where to put your hands and she looked at you like she didn't want to be that close to your face. You had breathed a little heavier than usual because this was the first time a person that wasn't your mom put their arms around you. And well, it was awkward. An awkward circle, a sad dance. And that's how I said "watched". Wa-aaa-aaa-tttt-chh-ed. **It's funny that you still tell your friends and family that you are "exhausted" after a day of work. You remember what it's like to actually be exhausted from work. You used to lift boxes all day. And the one time you actually worked in a restaurant, you didn't cook. You just hustled plates from one end to the other, running with rubber soles so you wouldn't slip, plates of salads and cakes and you hoped that they'd put you on the line but no one had any confidence in you. They thought it a waste of time to teach you, someone that knows nothing, someone that isn't assertive and sure of themselves. And the truth is, you aren't. You're kind of a mess. Yeah, you say you want these things for yourself but here you are, telling your friends your "exhausted" when you literally sit a desk and slap a keyboard all day. What's tiring about spreadsheets? Explain that to me. Please.
