Pop Culture

Collaboration between huge music talent is always exciting.

Speaking of musicians, Rammstein released the first music video for their upcoming album! Schrei and Rob are pretty ecstatic. Schrei has listened to the song at least 50 times by now.

TV/Movies

Renowned actress, Angelina Jolie, talks about the upcoming Marvel film directed by Chloe Zhao called ‘The Eternals’. This is Jolie’s first superhero film, but second comic book film!

As for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the Associated Press reports China has removed every line of dialogue that directly mentions homosexuality or bisexuality. When a report asks Mercury about his “sexual orientation” during a press conference scene, the subtitle has been changed to “sex life.” One major scene between Mercury (Rami Malek) and his girlfriend Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton) where the singer says he is bisexual cuts out the coming out dialogue. Mary’s response, “No Freddie, you’re gay,” is also removed. In one moment where Mercury reveals his AIDS diagnosis to his Queen band members, the dialogue has been muted as to not say the disease aloud. – Indiewire
