Actor Marlon Wayans has come out publicly and confirmed that his daughter has become a man. He expressed, “I have a daughter that transitioned into a son. I just want my kids to be free—free in spirit, free in thought, free to be themselves.”

“I have a daughter that transitioned into a son,” Wayans said. “I talk about the transition. Not his…their transition but my transition as a parent, going from ignorance and denial to complete unconditional love and acceptance.”

Wayans added that Kai uses they/them pronouns and can be seen correcting himself on their pronouns several times. “They know. They know I love them,” he said. “They see me try and they’re like, ‘I’m happy’.”

“I gotta respect their wishes and as a parent I just want my kids to be free – free in spirit, free in thought, free to be themselves,” he said. “The more you know yourself, the more you live your truth, the happier your existence. So if they can’t get that in a household with their father and their mother, how the f*** do I send them out into the world with that kind of confidence?”

Disney’s new superhero movie, “The Marvels,” is a verified flop at the box office. It only made $47 million in its first weekend in the U.S., making it the worst start for any Marvel movie.

This tells us that people might be getting tired of superhero and comic book stories. Big entertainment companies need their movies to make a lot of money, so this is not good news for them.

The movie cost $220 million to make and another $100 million to tell people about it, but it didn’t make as much money as they thought.

Experts thought the movie would make around $80 million in the U.S. during its first weekend, but it only made $47 million. Internationally, it made $63 million, so in total, it made $110 million worldwide in its first weekend.

One reason it didn’t do well might be because the actors couldn’t talk about it much before it came out. There was a strike that stopped Hollywood from making movies and promoting them for almost four months, starting in July. The strike only got resolved last Thursday.

Marvel movies used to be really popular for Disney, but after the pandemic, they haven’t been doing as well. “Avengers: Endgame,” which came out in 2019, is still the most popular Marvel movie.

Some movies, like “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” did okay in 2022. But there have also been movies that cost a lot to make but didn’t make much money back, like the new Ant-Man movie in the spring.

Megan Rapinoe from OL Reign said leaving the NWSL championship early due to injury was the worst thing for her last game. She felt a pop in her leg during the sixth minute, feared it was an Achilles injury, and found it devastating to exit the final so soon.

It seemed like the injury was located in her right ankle area, towards the back of her leg, hinting at a possible Achilles injury. Upon reviewing the game footage, it appears that Rapinoe communicated to Rose Lavelle that the injury specifically involves the Achilles.

Megan Rapinoe has been accused of leading the USWNT in a “shameful” snub of the national anthem at the 2023 World Cup.

The Marvels,” the 33rd chapter in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, is hurtling towards an box office milestone, actually a disaster. Projections suggest its opening weekend may only yield $60-65 million from 4,000 North American theaters, marking one of the MCU’s lowest debuts. The current dubious honor belongs to 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” ($55.4 million), closely trailed by 2015’s “Ant-Man” ($57.2 million), both figures not adjusted for inflation. Despite initial setbacks, “Ant-Man” rebounded to a trilogy-worthy $519 million global gross, showcasing the unpredictable journey of MCU films.

Olivia Rodrigo, The New York Times, and a Cultural Banana Republic

Shaping up to be a Taylor Swift protégé in more ways than one, 20-year-old pop star Olivia Rodrigo is giving the Ticketmaster servers a run for their money lately. Just days after announcing a 57-date world tour, she quickly expanded it to 75 shows, with an overage of demand that has created nothing short of a mania.

Rodrigo is fresh off the release of her sophomore album, GUTS. Unlike her debut, the similarly titled SOUR, which saw the then Disney graduate halted into full-blown pop stardom, GUTS has real momentum – largely because Rodrigo, and her sole collaborator, Daniel Nigro, are apt at taking note.

SOUR’s energy peaked with its thrashing opener, “Brutal.” While not perfect (talking about those programmed drums in particular), “Brutal” showed a punk rock side that most weren’t expecting from the 18-year-old whose crowning jewel before SOUR was a musical extension of the Disney hit, High School Musical.

From there, the album slumped out. Barring its apex, “Deja Vu,” and the sneaky indie pop deep cut “Jealousy, Jealousy,” the rest of SOUR suffered from ballad-itis. None of the songs were bad in a vacuum, but as a whole, discounting the Paramore knockoff, the album lacked bravado and energy.

GUTS doesn’t have this problem.

Wasting no time getting into the instantly classic “All-American Bitch,” then headfirst into what is undoubtedly one of the most interesting rock tracks of the year in “Bad Idea Right?,” Rodrigo and Nigro hashed out a definition quickly. GUTS, coincidentally enough, has more guts than its predecessor. CONTINUE READING
