Yanan [of Pentagon] Calls Out Cube
Pentagon's Yanan has been on hiatus since before Pentagon's last comeback 'Humph!' Yanan was present in the song but not in the music video due to health issues. After that statement we heard nothing from Cube about Yanan's health or the boy in general. When his birthday arrived they still posted about him to celebrate but gave no update on him. A few days ago Yanan took to his personal Weibo account to update us Universe on his current hiatus and situation. Yanan expressed in his post that he's been well for awhile and ready to return to the group but Cube has not replied to when he can return to promoting with the rest of the members. Cube has not responded to Yanan's post and the last thing they've posted about him was that he would not be particpating in Pentagon's world tour awhile back. Furthermore Yanan has been seen hanging out with Hyojong (Dawn/E'Dawn) and Hyuna recently as well. Some people think he is being punished for his continued friendship with the former Cube Entertainment artists. To read Yanan's full Weibo post click here. Cube please don't kick him out of the group, the boys have been through so much already!! I miss Yanan let him come back!! - Universe Citzens: @SugakookieV @mitchix5 @Sailynn @EvilGenius @Starbell808 @KpopBeat @ImHayley @Changkyunie @Infinitysky @Yugykookie97 @Just2BLoved @VeronicaArtino @SerenaArthurs @SweetDuella @BoyGroupKpop @MaeLyn @MelissaGarza @QueenyCrossGene @TaylorHill5 If you'd like to be tagged please let us know!
Lana Del Rey and the Language of the Violent Image
This month has been a slew of sexual assault cases, with Eminem threatening Iggy Azalea and now a mysterious film project starring Lana Del Rey being brutally raped. The project was directed by notoriously nasty Eli Roth and stars both Lana Del Rey and clips of old videos from Marilyn Manson - who was originally accused of directing the film himself! The bizarre video shows these Manson videos mixed a disturbing scene of Roth physically attacking and sexually assaulting Del Rey. Manson's team has since confirmed that Manson wasn't involved and that it was "likely a fan tinkering with his music video scenes." Like anything taken out of context, it is hard to judge the message of Eli Roth's film based on these few clips (which have since been removed from the internet) but based on his previous work, this project will be inching towards the 'Hollywood torture porn' genre as Jessica Hopper of Pitchfork puts it. Lana Del Rey's entire persona is based off of playing on the traditional American idea of women - being glamorous, vulnerable, and meek. Her music and art so clearly ties back to and plays with all of these ideals (If you haven't seen her video for National Anthem, check it out now) so to have her be raped on film - evening if she was acting - is especially disturbing. Roth is just another man portraying the sexual abuse of women through a man's eyes. Why he chose to use a leading symbol of traditional femininity is something I think the entire music community is waiting for. So far, Roth and Del Rey haven't commented on the situation.
Lana Del Rey for New Tim Burton Movie!
I am such a Tim Burton fangirl, guys. If he makes it, I'll watch it! His trademark kooky-creepy-lovely aesthetic is definitely a big reason, along with the inevitable casting of Helen Bonham Carter and/or Johnny Depp. I'll never get tired of them doing Tim Burton! But I have to say, one of my favorite aspects of Tim Burton movies is the music. Burton is known (as with the casting) for having favorite collaborations, and one of his most perennially successful partnerships is with composer Danny Elfman. I don't know if anyone can harness "magical," "whimsical" and "creepy" quite as beautifully and inventively as he can. I was pretty psyched to hear that he's also doing the soundtrack for Burton's latest movie, "Big Eyes." This one is a little different than his usual, it looks like - it is the true story of artist Margaret Keane and her struggles against her husband, who claimed her works portraying big-eyed girls were his own. What I found a little strange is that the title song is written not by Elfman, it seems - but by Lana Del Rey, who is also performing the song. I like the song, which was just released in a lyric video preview (attached here). I'm not sure, however, that it has quite the impact of some of my favorite Elfman pieces. People are already asking whether it will be big enough for an Oscar nomination. I have to say I'm not completely blown away - but I did enjoy it. What do you think? Do you like the song on its own? Is it worthy to stand beside Elfman's music?
