Taylor Swift Fans Now Boycotting Her Music after Launching Campaign against Matty Healy

For how long Taylor Swift will remain silent?

Published

Ever since Taylor Swift broke up with her boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, her love life has been a subject of interest. 

While Swift has not confirmed her new boyfriend, she has been spotted with The 1975’s Matty Healy. Healy and Swift have been photographed hanging out together.

Moreover, Healy has been going to Swift’s Era tour concerts and her apartment as well. Many netizens have taken this as a confirmation of their relationship and are not happy with it.

This is mainly because Healy has been the subject of various controversies and scandals. He has made offensive and racist remarks and jokes that netizens have not taken well.

As a result, Swifties all over the world are ready to boycott their idol for dating a racist person. They have launched a campaign called Speak Up Now, using the hashtag #SpeakUpNow, urging Swift to talk about her alleged racist boyfriend.

Users on social media are already circulating an open letter to Swift with the hashtag “#SpeakUpNow” in an attempt to urge her to refute the supposed relationship with Healy. The letter accuses Healy of “actions that contribute to the perpetuation of hatred, stereotypes, and objectification” and asks Swift to reply to Healy’s controversies publicly.

While people have the freedom to make their own decisions and develop partnerships, those who signed the letter are effectively saying that those in the public spotlight must take a stand against prejudice and hold themselves and their colleagues accountable.

They wrote, “Your voice holds tremendous power and right now your silence is palpable. This silence sends a message of indifference, particularly to the fans who have supported you.”

Swift is requested for “more than a mere apology” in the letter. She is asked to utilize her position responsibly and with meaning. 

Similarly, Swifties have asked her to encourage empathy and comprehension while advocating for inclusivity and celebrating diversity while inspiring people to join you in making the world a more just and equitable place by opposing destructive concepts.

The news about boycotting Swift’s music was also addressed by DeuxMoi. They took to Instagram Stories to reveal that Swifties were serious about the boycott.

DeuxMoi reported that a source close to Swift defended the singer, claiming she was not reading anything online about her. She is simply focusing on her tour and enjoying it while shutting out news and reports surrounding her.

Swift has not addressed anything regarding her relationship after her break-up with Alwyn. Therefore, if what DeuxMoi said is true, she will not be responding about Healy and his racist behavior anytime soon.

Matty Healy’s racist past

Healy has a long history of controversy, including claims of racism and misogyny. Before 2023, some fans sought to defend the singer, claiming his outlandish conduct was satire.

Such justifications, however, were impossible to make after Healy’s appearance on The Adam Friedland Show in February 2023. Because the episode was extremely offensive, Apple and Spotify removed it from their services. 

However, clips from the program continue to circulate on social media, including ones in which Healy can be heard insulting Ice Spice. Ice Spice’s singing career and inspirations were discussed in the podcast by Healy, Mike Mullen, and Adam Friedland. 

They then embarked into a racist discussion in which they speculated about the singer’s origin, attempted to mimic her accent, and made other nasty remarks about her race and physique, including referring to her as “one of the Inuit Spice Girls” and a “chubby Chinese lady.” 

Healy was also heard giggling and encouraging the host to imitate Japanese accents. Healy apologized to Ice Spice during one of the 1975’s April gigs. 

He denied any accountability, stating his statements were misconstrued and apologizing solely because he didn’t want Ice Spice to believe he was mean. Meanwhile, in another segment of the podcast, Healy’s statements got much more unsettling. 

He casually mentioned that he was watching pornography from a hardcore site renowned for uploading images of white males sexually demeaning and shaming people of color while relating an event where a buddy walked in on him masturbating after a party. 

The website is said to be a virulently racist, violent, and misogynistic website that despises women and minorities.

Mullen and Friedland, the other two guys on the show, acted as if nothing was amiss with Healy’s statements, laughing along with him as he narrated the story, which netizens found disturbing to watch.

In January 2023, Healy and 1975 performed at the First Direct Arena in Leeds as part of the At Their Very Best tour. Things took an unpleasant turn when Healy stole the podium and launched into a racist diatribe. 

“I don’t think it’s a racist thing to say…,” Healy stated before his bandmates interrupted him by starting the following song. Many netizens assumed that the singer was about to say something offensive, so his bandmates did not let him speak.

Shortly after this event, Healy was recorded making the Nazi salute onstage at another concert. He performed the motion as he marched onto the stage, saying, “Thank you, Kanye, very cool.” 

The lyrics are from the 1975 song ‘Love It If We Made It,’ and they are meant to ridicule Donald Trump, who once tweeted the same lines to Kanye West, who has made repeated anti-Semitic slurs. 

Fans supported Healy’s salute, saying it was part of his satire of Trump and Kanye. He did not, however, explain the gesture, making it impossible to grasp his motivations. 

Racist charges initially came against Healy in 2020 when he sent an offensive tweet about Black Lives Matter. Just days after George Floyd’s murder, Healy turned to Twitter to express his thoughts, stating, “If you truly believe that ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ you need to stop facilitating the end of black ones.”

His decision to add a link to The 1975 song ‘Love It if We Made It’ in the tweet received criticism. Twitter users soon pointed out how improper it was for him to utilize the Black Lives Matter movement to sell one of his songs. 

After receiving criticism, Healy removed the tweet and replaced it with another, stating that he only included the song because the lyrics discuss racism and other issues in the world. There have been several other instances of Healy being offensive and racist.

Therefore, it is not surprising that Swifites are mad at their idol for hanging out with Healy and ignoring his behavior.

Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus Still Cancer Free despite Reoccurring Symptoms

“Still cancer free. Thank you God.”

Published

Mark Hoppus has been actively providing his health updates ever since he revealed his cancer diagnosis in April 2021.

While Blink-182‘s bassist was declared cancer free in September 2021, he still has to do some occasional treatment. For instance, his fans were again worried when he revealed that he had reoccurring symptoms.

Thankfully, there is not much to worry about, at least in the meantime. This is because Hoppus gave the latest update on his health on Sunday, February 4, 2024, revealing he is fine and still cancer free.

He took to his Instagram story, where he posted a picture of himself lying in a hospital bed. The photo revealed he was in a small private room with a hospital wristband on his right hand.

Similarly, on the same hand, the nurses had infused him with something, probably a Saline Solution IV Drip Fluid and not Cancer Chemotherapy Infusion Intravenous Drip, as Hoppus revealed the cancer wasn’t back.

Over the photo, the American musician wrote, “Got scanned the morning I left LA after recurring symptoms. I thought for sure it was back.” “Still cancer free. Thank you God. Thank you Universe. Love you all. Let’s. [explicit]. Go.,” he added.

This joyous news was met with excitement by his fans, who were happy to learn that the singer was still in good health. For instance, when a Reddit user posted Hoppus’ Instagram story on the platform, another user wrote, “May it stay that way!”

One Redditor opened up about their own cancer journey and commented, “Had cancer myself. Sometimes symptoms linger. It’s not fun. For me, the symptoms have been excruciating – swollen lymph nodes, high body temperature, and so much more.”

“(I do also have hyperthyroidism I finally am getting help with and the symptoms are pretty similar!) I hope he finds a way to balance his body back, it takes a lot of time and effort,” the same Reddit user concluded his comment.

Likewise, one wrote, “Happy to hear he’s doing well!” with another Redditor adding, “This story aged me about 10 years when I read it this morning. So glad he’s okay! I don’t really like celebrities but I do have quite the soft spot for Mark.”

Speaking a little of Hoppus’ cancer journey, he was diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in April 2021. However, he initially didn’t reveal the news to the public and fought the battle privately. In June 2021, he finally revealed his cancer diagnosis.

In a social media post, he wrote, “For the past three months, I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It sucks, and I’m scared, and at the same time, I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.”

“I still have months of treatment ahead of me, but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the hopefully near future. Love to you all,” he concluded his statement.

After battling diffuse large B-cell lymphoma – a blood cancer his mother also had – for months and going through multiple rounds of chemotherapy, Hoppus revealed in September 2023 that he beat cancer and was in remission.

In another social media post, he stated, “Just saw my oncologist, and I’m cancer free!! Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”

“Still have to get scanned every six months and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed. Can I get a W in the chat?” the co-lead vocalist of Blink-182 concluded his joyous news.

Since being cancer free, Hoppus has been getting back to living life the way he used to. For instance, in April 2022, he was approached by a TMZ reporter while on a rare outing with his wife, Skye. The reporter then asked the musician how he was doing.

Hoppus replied that his life was great and that he was glad to be there. Furthermore, he mentioned that he was getting back to going out in public and wanted to head back to the studio, get off his couch, get back to playing music, and hopefully release new music soon.

Camila Cabello’s New Album Reportedly ‘Dark’ and Releasing in Mid 2024

“See you next year,” Camila said in December 2023.

Camila Cabello‘s new focus is releasing new music, even if it’s dark and sexually explicit!

The American singer first teased about releasing new music during her 2023 recap on Instagram. On December 28, 2023, she did a 2023 recap via her Instagram stories and teased she had something special coming in 2024.

She added a photo of her recording vocals in a complete set-up microphone and wrote, “Mostly the year of this. See you next year, b**ches,” alongside a mouth-zipped-shut emoji. This little tease was enough for her fans to be excited.

Now, an anonymous source has mentioned that Cabello has a new album coming out, and its release date is either July 2024 or August 2024. Additionally, the source mentioned that her upcoming songs will be dark and there will be no break up songs.

The anonymous source came forward to DeuxMoi – an Instagram-based gossip and news media – and dropped the details on DeuxMoi’s tip form. DeuxMoi then shared it on their Instagram story on January 18, 2024.

In the subject, the source wrote, “CC new album,” with CC being the initials of Cabello’s stage name.

As the tipster continued, they mentioned that Cabello’s new album would probably be released in July or August 2024, and she will release at least two new songs alongside a collab with a rapper and one song for her new movie before the release of her album.

The collaboration with the rapper might refer to her reported Drake collab. In mid-December 2023, Cabello and Drake were seen hanging out together in a yacht at Turks & Caicos in the Bahamas. This fueled the months-long rumors of their collaboration.

The source also requested Cabello’s fans not to expect break up songs or tea, and even if there were, it would be so late since her rekindled romance with ex-boyfriend Shawn Mendes failed that people would have already moved on, and there would be no public interest.

Cabello and Shawn began dating in July 2019 after five years of friendship, but they broke up in November 2021. They rekindled their romance in April 2023, only to end things six weeks later in June 2023.

The source had written, “Don’t expect breakup songs or tea; if any songs make it on the album, it will be so late and past since the failed rekindled that people will have moved on and public interest not there, so the label doesn’t want it.”

They continued, “Like Familia, she reworked it the last three months to remove love songs and specific songs about the ex. She hasn’t been serious or really dated anyone since the rekindle, so it would be hard to market breakup songs about another celeb or high-profile love interest.”

“So, they are going with very genetic musical lyrics, sexually explicit compared to her previous work and what she considers edgy and rebranded. As you once called her “dark,” lol, which she’s not or emo, but that’s what label wants who took creative control of the album back in March 2023,” they concluded.

That said, DeuxMoi’s tips often come true and are also false and should be taken with a grain of salt. But if the information is accurate, this will be her first album since she released her LP Familia in April 2022.

However, while she hasn’t released her own songs, she has collaborated with Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake for the soundtrack ‘It Takes Two’ from the 2023 animated film Trolls Band Together, in which Cabello voiced the character of Viva.

Teenage Rapper Lil Purk to Serve 20 Years in Prison for Atlantic Station Double Murder

Lil Purk has been jailed 20 years in prison.

Published

Teenage Rapper Lil Purk, real name Antonio Jackson, has been jailed for 20 years in prison for a deadly shooting near Atlantic Station in November 2022.

Five of the six defendants, Lil Purk, Demetrius Hill, Toney Wilson, Deandre Forston, and DeRodney Russell, entered negotiated guilty pleas, their sentences ranging from 20 to 40 years. 

The rapper was sentenced to 20 years, with 10 years to be served in custody and 10 years on probation. However, other suspects were sentenced to 40 years in jail.

Hill faced a more severe sentence, having negotiated a guilty plea resulting in 40 years of imprisonment. Of this term, he is slated to spend 30 years in custody.

Wilson received a similar 40-year sentence but with a different distribution—20 years in custody and an equal period on probation.

Forston and Russell, like their co-defendants, entered negotiated guilty pleas and received matching sentences of 40 years. In their cases, 20 years are to be served in custody, followed by an additional 20 years on probation.

Two young boys, 12-year-old Zyion Charles, and 15-year-old Cameron Jackson were left dead, and four other individuals were injured.

Zyion’s mother, Deerica Charles, spoke emotionally before the Atlanta City Council Public Safety Committee, revealing her desperate attempts to divert her son from a dangerous path of criminal behavior.

Despite her pleas to law enforcement, citing her son was involved in car break-ins, a prevalent form of street crime in Atlanta, she received little assistance. 

Deerica said, “I tried, y’all. I called the police office almost 30 times in the last two years, and they told me they can’t do nothing. I said he’s out and breaking into these folks’ cars, can you please get him off the street.”

On the other hand, Cameron’s family remembered him as a teenager with a passion for science, animals, cooking, and dirt bike riding. He had also been practicing boxing since the age of nine. 

Cameron’s mother, Tiffany Smith said, “Cameron has been a boxer since 9-years-old, and he was heading for a professional boxing career. He trained five days a week with a pro boxing coach.”

Additionally, according to 11Alive News, the shootout occurred on the 17th Street Bridge originated from two groups initially escorted off the Atlantic Station property due to unruly behavior and curfew violations.

Atlanta Police later confirmed their belief that the shooting was gang-related. However, Zyion’s family denied his involvement in any gang activity.

Lil Purk apologized after being arrested

Lil Purk took to his Instagram Story to publicly apologize to his family, fans, and the younger generation who have looked up to him. 

Taking to his Instagram Story, he started by saying, “To all my family & fans, I would like to sincerely apologize to y’all and to all the younger generation looking up to me.”

Additionally, he emphasized the complexity of his situation, urging it to serve as a lesson for the entire generation, highlighting the notion that appearances can be deceiving. 

He wrote, “Let my situation be a lesson learned for our whole generation; everything is not what it seems, and I maintain my innocence.” 

Asserting his innocence, Lil Purk also expressed love for Lil Hot and extended apologies to families affected by the circumstances, urging forgiveness.
