Bella Thorne – Lonely

 BELLA THORNE DROPS NEW MUSIC VIDEO AND SINGLE
“LONELY”

As the first hit song, Bella’s virality and social media influence continues to push her way of confidently creating on the edge. Bella reminds the world once again that she is not afraid to be transparent when it comes to her sexuality womanhood by releasing a song that talks about topics usually seen as taboo by a woman.

“Lonely” finds Bella Thorne expressing her dilemma of being a girl alone who turns to her phone and the people on it to deal with her loneliness. The song brings to light the idea that women and people all over, especially during these times, are turning to their phone to find connection with others.

The idea of being alone is one that is often perceived as bad or as not the ideal situation. Bella reminds her listeners the message that it is okay to feel these emotions. Watch the video here and the teaser here.

Read a Q&A with the singer, Bella Thorne, below.

What is lonely about and what inspired you to create it?

Well, the idea came from my own personal experience. When I am lonely and horny up late at night, I kept looking at my phone going on Instagram scrolling through different apps, really just wanting that attention from someone. I was writing a lot of music at that time as well so I was always in the writing mode you could say. I just kept hearing “I only checked my phone when I’m lonely and horny, only check my phone…” I was just like, man, I keep hearing this and I just had to go into the studio within the next few days to record it, because I just couldn’t get out of my head. Yeah.

It’s been a few years since your last music project, what made you decide to choose “Lonely” as your first release back?

I wanted to choose “Lonely” because I think it’s a great song to really set off the rest of the record. You know, it’s definitely fun, playful, it’s got that pop anthem vibe to it. I just knew it was a strong contender when I wrote it.

What was your creative process behind the song?

After that late night that I was talking about, I went in the studio in the next few days, we sat down, we started strumming to it, and thinking about different chords and what not behind it. And then I just wrote it with my fav writing partners in crime.

Can we expect more music to be coming out soon following this first project?

Yes, I am definitely releasing more songs, but I also have videos. You know, I have an arsenal written up of songs that I do want to put out. Every song feels like it kind of matches to different genre, but each song is also kind of a standalone you could say. I would definitely describe myself as like a genre-less artist, in the sense that I’ll be releasing chapters of my life. Whichever songs fit that chapter is the chapter I’ll be releasing, but all the chapters will be different. I intend to keep them that way because that really is a part of who I am. I don’t think artists are stuck in just one lane because as a person you go through a lot in life and you change and you learn, and you decide you like different stuff. I think, watching an artist grow is so important and definitely in this new release of music, you’re going to see that growth.

What are some topics you will be tackling in your music?

I talk a lot of topics. This is a hard question because I kind of like to talk about a lot of things. It just depends on what’s on my mind. I’m either writing from personal experience or thoughts, or I’m writing as a character with someone else in mind, and I’m completely stepping into another person. This actually makes the acting side and the music side really connect, which I personally like a lot.

What originally inspired you to venture into the music industry?

Well, originally, I was really scared of hearing that I didn’t have a voice. I thought I was tone deaf. I still say that because I’m still not sure if it was me or not. My voice was bad, and Disney really wanted me to sing, but I didn’t want to. They talked me into it and I didn’t like it. It was a bad experience and I basically said I wouldn’t go back to music again. But then I did the movie “Midnight Sun.” It was my first time singing again and that was all because singing was very important to the character. I understood so I was down to do it since it was a big part of the movie. That experience kind of set me in a much better tone with music, the whole process really made me fall in love with music. I also got to experience music through the acting side, which is a side that I was already really connected to. I think that connection helped me bond more to the music.

What is different about this upcoming release from past projects?

I think honestly from my heart what’s different is that this recent music is 100% me. You know, I really feel like I finally found my voice, where I want to be, and who I am at this current moment in time and I’ve really gotten to express that thoroughly through my music.

So, you’re really popular on TikTok, how has it been collaborating with some of the hottest influencers on that?

Yeah, it’s been awesome. I love all the TikTok kids and I love meeting and being immersed in a new community. I think the whole TikTok world is so interesting in general with the algorithms, the way it works. It really is so different from any other app. I personally love seeing people on my newsfeed that I’ve never seen before doing the funniest shit, so it’s made me definitely fall in love with TikTok.

What’s next for you, music wise?

Well, I want to release the songs, you know, one at a time and just kind of put a vibe out.

I love these songs and I love these videos that I’ve been working really, really hard on. I directed and wrote every single video and I feel like it definitely matches the music. So, I’m really happy with how everything’s going there, so hopefully that is translated.

Do you have any virtual performances we can look forward to seeing in the near future?

Well if all goes well, and legally everything is approved, then it looks like we might be doing a New Year’s live streaming event or concert with some of my super dope friends that want to be a part of it and just kind of creating a vibe. This is for people that can’t be with their family or friends and they’re watching from home and they want to listen to some dank ass music.

Simonetta Lein – Entertainment’s New Fashion Icon

Simonetta Lein is the new Entertainment’s Fashion Icon. Read her interview below!

  1. Were you nervous to step outside of your comfort zone of fashion to enter the world of television?

I began being in front of cameras when I was 16. I actually started paying my bills very young as an actress. Then social media took off and it allowed me to create a name for myself that brought me to starting The Wishwall TV Show, aired through FNL Network on Amazon Prime and Apple TV and now The Simonetta Lein Show Via SLTV. I have guests such as Bob Saget, Jodi Sweetin, Tommy Chong, Jay Shetty, Leon, Kim Sledge of The Sister Sledge and many more. We are over 40 million views and counting.

  1. What does fashion mean to you in terms of entertainment? Is it more personal for you or more about sending a message to the outside world?

It gives a message to the outside world that through fashion, you can truly express your inner self.

  1. What has fashion done for the entertainment industry? Do you feel an outfit can communicate an entire story?

The entertainment industry owes a lot to fashion as it is through looks and outfits that the image gets delivered to the public. It brought me to be recognized as one of the top 5 Fashion influencers in the world by Forbes, one outfit at a time.

  1. What do you look for in a piece before you decide to wear it and make it part of your story?

I plan everything ahead thinking about what is the mood of the photoshoot or video interview or the episode for the TV show. I like to work with the same team when possible, so I want to thank Raphael Amabile, my executive producer of Ausonia Partners for making sure that everything happens behind the scenes, Kate Massih, my production manager for making sure that it all goes smoothly, Messiah Jones and Jasmine Smith respectably for my hair and makeup style and James Clark our booker producer.

Each and every one of them makes sure that my business comes to light. Only the teamwork makes it possible.

Misbehavior Trailer

Check out the official trailer for MISBEHAVIOUR, the charmingly provocative true story of how two very different groups of women made their voices heard in the fight for equality, starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“The Morning Show”) and Keira Knightley (Pride and Prejudice).

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

Directed by: Philippa Lowthorpe

Cast: Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley, Keeley Hawes, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville, Rhys Ifans, Greg Kinnear

Tamar Braxton Attempted Suicide

By Eamonn Burke

American singer, actress, and TV personality Tamar Braxton was found by her boyfriend unconscious in her hotel room last Thursday. After an emergency call about a possible overdose she was transported to a local hospital. It’s reported that she had been drinking and using prescription pills that night, and the incident is believed to be an attempted suicide after this note was allegedly discovered:

“I am a slave. I do not own my life. My stories. My pictures. My thoughts or beliefs. I’ve asked my massa to free me. I’m threatened and punished for it. The only way I see out is death. I will choose that before I continue to love (sic) like this. Please help me.”

Tamar’s team has thanked fans and friends for the “outpouring of support that Tamar has received”, which is “a testament to the light that she brings to people.” Her family, meanwhile, asks fans to “pray 4 our family.”

It’s no secret that Tamar was having a tough time leading up to the incident. She sent an email the the bosses of WeTV, her network, shaming them for destroying her family and making her suicidal. She claimed that the show Braxton Family Values distorted the image of her family and caused “disarray” among them, even likening it to “cruel white slave masters who once chained our forefathers.”

Reports say Tamar is now awake and fully conscious, and is being moved to another hospital where she can receive more specific treatment for her apparent mental illness. She will remain there until further action is determined.

Naya Rivera’s Sudden Death

Former “Glee” actress Naya Rivera tragically died in a selfless act to save her four year old son.

By Gabriella Scerbo

Authorities reveal that Rivera’s body was found on Monday, July 13th on Lake Piru in Ventura County, California. The performer had been missing since Wednesday, July 8th.

Rivera’s son, Josey, told authorities that “he looked back and saw her disappear under the surface of the water”. The mother and son had been swimming, and although nothing is certain, there were many currents in the lake that particular morning.

A probable cause is that the unanchored boat started drifting, and Rivera managed to get her son on the boat, but lost energy to get herself back on the boat. No foul play or any suspicious activity was reported by local authorities. Lake Piru has had several drowning incidents in the past. Following her tragic death, many fans have made petitions to designate certain areas that are not safe for swimming, and to put up warning signs.

Rivera’s ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey and the “Glee” cast were seen gathering at Lake Piru in honor of Rivera and her talents both on and off the screen. Not only was she an incredible performer, actress and entertainer who touched the heart of many with her fearless attitude and overall spunk, she was an amazing mother and person to many.

‘In an emotional message, the creators of #Glee paid tribute to Naya Rivera and revealed their plan to create a college fund “for the beautiful son Naya loves most of all.”‘ – E!News Twitter

Bella Thorne × DRIHP

Actress and philanthropist Bella Thorne aligns with hemp clothing line DRIHP

Actress and philanthropist, Bella Thorne aligns with clothing line DRIHP. In addition, influencer Rachel Cook and model and social media personality, Jay Alvarrez have come on board as Brand Ambassadors for the new environmentally-safe hemp line. The line officially launched Saturday, May 30, 2020 on their website. DRIHP was founded by millennial entrepreneur, Luke Dandrea, who is also the founder of the revolutionary hemp flower, hemp seed and hemp crop insurance company, Clone Connect.

DRIHP is more than eco-friendly hemp apparel; DRIHP is a movement that Dandrea hopes will be a launching pad to help save the planet! With its multiple uses, Dandrea’s mission is to educate the consumer one product at a time on how industrial hemp is the game changing component in the science of global warming. One of the many uses of industrial hemp is textiles, which is what DRIHP is focused on. The fibers from the stalks of a hemp plant create eco-friendly hemp apparel and the H in DRIHP stands for Hemp. DRIHP textiles use 1/20 of the water that is required to grow and process traditional cotton fabrics. The line will carry men and women’s clothing and accessories. DRIHP is currently giving away 20,0000 breathable and stylish hemp face masks to customers that go to the website and sign up.

When Dandrea wanted to build out the idea of launching the first major hemp apparel and accessories brand, he approached Barrett Wissman, Chairman of IMG Artists and principal of the social media management firm Two Pillar Management to build out and manage the company as well as engage his higher end talent such as actress Bella Thorne and influencers Jay Alvarrez, and Rachel Cook to be the first ambassadors for the brand.

Stated Wissman, “It has been an honor to help build out a company that is not only launching a new, cutting-edge fashion brand, but one that is at the forefront of a new environmental movement.”

Thorne a long-time cannabis enthusiast is the co-founder of her own very successful cannabis and CBD brand line called Forbidden Flowers, which launched through Glass House Group in October 2019. Understanding the history of hemp, she thought it was important to jump on aboard to this project to help educate her fans, etc. about the environmental benefits of hemp and clear up some of the misconceptions of placing hemp in the same category as cannabis.

“It’s important for me to use my voice to spread the beauty and knowledge of this world. It was mind blowing to find out that so many people when you discuss hemp put it in the same category as cannabis,” stated Thorne. It was crazy to watch how their minds would automatically shut down to the concept. When Luke approached me about DRIHP, I was like, yes, yes… Let’s save the planet dude and let’s educate the world on this wonderful, amazing product, that we can make clothes out of, build houses with, eat when we are hungry, the uses for it are virtually limitless! Hemp is the answer to saving the planet and I am stoked to be able to play a small part of that education. If you can change one person’s mind… you can help change the world.”

“Bella bleeds authenticity and so does the brand. She caught on immediately. Jay set the foundation early on and realized his platform was ready to learn about environmentalism,” stated Dandrea on the collaboration with Thorne and Alvarez.

His passion and leadership in devoting his life to educating hemps benefits quickly turned him into a force to be reckoned with.

About DRIHP:

DRIHP is an industrial Hemp, environmentally safe apparel line founded in 2020 by entrepreneur Luke Dandrea.

DRIHP is more than apparel line… it is a CONCEPT of Life. It’s not about selling a shirt; it’s about educating that masses that Hemp can make for a better world When something is so new and or “reborn” such as Hemp, it requires those who understand to educate.
