Lana Del Rey Takes Selfies With Fans At Sweetlife Festival 2014

With the hype around her upcoming album, Ultraviolence, Lana Del Rey was one of the acts that everyone wanted to see at the Sweetlife Festival on Saturday (May 10). The energy in the Merriweather Post Pavilion was thick with anticipation, and many, including this writer, wondered what she had up her sleeve with the “West Coast” era underway. And as she walked onstage wearing a sweatshirt and daisy dukes, the venue erupted with screams that could rival the decibel level of a One Direction concert. Clearly these people worshipped her.

And while LDR managed to keep her signature stoic presence as she performed hits like “Summertime Sadness,” “Cola” and “Video Games,” things took a different turn when she decided to hop off the stage and start taking selfies with fans. While this was a sweet gesture, there was an eerie silence with bursts of screams throughout this long pause during her performance. After what felt like 10 minutes (but was probably only a couple), she got back on the mic to sing her latest single, “West Coast.”

“It’s so exciting to sing ‘West Coast’ for you,” she announced. “I’m so excited for Ultraviolence to come out. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Lizzo Will Appear In 'Hustlers' Alongside Cardi B And Jennifer Lopez

Lizzo continues to make waves as a musician, instrumentalist, body-positivity icon and booty-shaker extraordinaire. The artist– whose major-label debut Cuz I Love You is receiving praise from listeners and critics alike– will have a chance to put her twerking skills to the test.

According to reports, the Minnesota transplant is set to join the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Keke Palmer in the already-stacked lineup for the upcoming film, Hustlers. Deadline reports that this is Lizzo’s first live-action film, and her second film overall. She’ll be voicing a character in the upcoming animated musical film, Uglydolls.

Hustlers, which is set to be released by September 2019, is inspired by an article published in New York Magazine in 2016, which “follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.”

Additional actresses set to appear in the film include Fresh Off The Boat’s Constance Wu, Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Transparent’s Trace Lysette, Mercedes Ruehl, dancer Mette Towley and Orange Is The New Black’s Madeline Brewer.

13-Year-Old Texas Girl On Life Support After Middle School Fit

A 13-year-old Texas girl is on life support after being attacked by a group of girls after school last week.  According to Houston's ABC 13, the middle schooler has been at the Texas Children's Hospital for the past two days.

Kashala Francis reportedly was attacked Thursday (April 18) by two girls when another jumped in and kicked her in the head. When she went home, Kashala had a bruise on her face and told her mother, Mamie Jackson, what happened, but said she was okay.

On Saturday, the teen was visiting a family member's house when she began to act delusional but then gathered her bearings. The next day, Kashala complained to her mother over the phone of a headache.

"I drove over and I told her get up. I said 'Get up, Kashala.' She kept saying, 'Mama, my head hurt,' so she laid down," Jackson said.

Jackson told reporters by the time she called paramedics, her daughter was unconscious. While at the hospital it was discovered Kashala had a tumor in the back of her head. Doctor's aren't sure if the fight contributed to it, or did she have it prior.

Trump Reportedly Complained To Twitter CEO About Having Less Followers Than Obama

Per The Daily Beast, Donald Trump had a meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, where he reportedly complained about having less followers than the 44th President, Barack Obama. The report reads that 45 spent “an inordinate amount of time” complaining about how he’s lost a sizable amount of Twitter followers, among other things.

Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino reportedly spent a large portion of the meeting, which took place in the Oval Office, discussing the likely reasons why Trump’s follower count has decreased. A source familiar with the meeting that took place says he believes that “anti-Trump, anti-conservative Twitter purges” are likely to blame.

“Two people close to Trump previously told The Daily Beast that Trump has repeatedly griped to associates about how his predecessor, President Obama, has had more Twitter followers than he has, even though—by Trump’s own assessment—he is so much better at Twitter than Obama is,” the report continues.

Meanwhile, Obama recently had a street named after him in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 23.

“Our history is important and this is one way that we will ensure that America’s 44th President’s legacy is shared for generations to come for Angelenos and visitors alike,” said Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson of  Obama Boulevard.
