Energiedrankie kan homself steeds GaGa noem

Lady Gaga het 'n regsgeding teen 'n Oostenrykse sakeman verloor wat 'n energiedrankie GaGa verkoop.

Lady Gaga het hierdie week slegte nuus gekry toe sy 'n patentgeding verloor het met 'n Oostenrykse sakeman wat 'n drankie genaamd GaGa verkoop het, wat volgens hom nie na die sangeres vernoem is nie en niks met haar te doen het nie.

Volgens The Local, toe Adam Galirow en sy vrou hul resep vir 'n kafeïeneerde energiedrankie wat probiotika en stevia bevat, bedink het, noem hulle dit GaGa as 'n afkorting van hul van, Galirow-Galirow. Maar die GaGa -naam lyk en word uitgespreek presies soos Lady Gaga se naam, en haar prokureurs het 'n brief gestuur om Galirow te vertel om die naam van die drank te verander of 'n regsgeding in die gesig te staar.

Maar Galirow is duidelik, want die patentkantoor het pas verklaar dat die drank van Galirow net so goed is, omdat Galirow die drank onder die naam GaGa in 2011 gepatenteer het. Lady Gaga was toe al baie bekend, maar sy het nie haar verhoognaam gepatenteer vir gebruik in die kategorie koeldrank, bier en mineraalwater nie. Galirow het wel sy drank in die kategorie gepatenteer, en die patentkantoor het gesê dat niemand Lady Gaga, die sanger, met 'n blikkie GaGa -energiedrankie kan verwar nie.


Gas Monkey Bar lê 'n laster van $ 6 miljoen in teen die stigter en TV -ster Richard Rawlings

17:22 op 15 Junie 2018 CDT

Opgedateer om 08:50 Vrydag: Hersien om verklaring van Richard Rawlings se prokureur in te sluit.

Die gewilde Dallas -restaurant en musieklokaal Gas Monkey Bar N 'Grill dagvaar sy stigter, Richard Rawlings, vir laster en "doelbewuste en bedrieglike pogings" om uit sy kontrak te kom, volgens 'n regsgeding.

Die regsgeding wat $ 6 miljoen skadevergoeding eis, is Donderdag namens die kroeg en sy bestuurslid, Daniel Flaherty, aanhangig gemaak teen Rawlings, die produksiemaatskappy vir sy Discovery Channel -werklikheidsvertoning. Fast N 'Loud, en Gas Monkey Holdings.

Rawlings se prokureur het in 'n verklaring gesê dat die eis nie meriete het nie.

"Gas Monkey Bar oortree ons lisensie -ooreenkoms sedert dag 1, ons het die afgelope vyf jaar probeer om hierdie probleme op te los, ons het die verhouding beëindig toe dit duidelik geword het dat hulle nie bereid was om hul kontraktuele verpligtinge na te kom nie, en Dit is duidelik dat dit niks anders as 'n vervaardigde eis is as 'n laaste poging om die lisensie terug te kry nie, 'sê Austin Champion, die prokureur van Rawlings.

Die produksiemaatskappy Pilgrim Films and Television en die prokureurs van die noordwestelike Dallas -kroeg en Flaherty kon nie vir kommentaar bereik word nie.

Daar is probleme met Rawlings voordat die kroeg naby sy Gas Monkey Garage selfs vyf jaar gelede vir sake oopgemaak is, lui die regsgeding.

Tydens die konstruksie daarvan skryf die werknemer van die kroeg, Tim Hinkhouse, in 'n e -pos van Mei 2013, "Richard was uiters ontwrigtend. Sy behandeling van die konstruksiewerkers was onaanvaarbaar.

Na verskeie gevalle van Rawlings wat die konstruksie onderbreek en gestaak het, lui die regsgeding dat Flaherty hom van die bouperseel verbied het sodat die werk voltooi kon word.

Sedert die opening van die kroeg en musieklokaal in September 2013, het "Rawlings konsekwent probeer om homself by hul bedrywighede in te neem en beheer oor te neem" van Flaherty, volgens die saak.

Die regsgeding beweer ook dat Rawlings lasterlik was oor die kroeg en 'ongegronde beskuldigings' gemaak het dat Flaherty, wat in Coppell woon, van hom gesteel het.

In 2015 het Rawlings 'n e -pos aan Flaherty geskryf oor onvolledige of ontbrekende finansiële rekords, lui die saak. Flaherty het geantwoord deur vir Rawlings te sê dat hy welkom is om self te gaan sit en na die rekords te kyk, maar Rawlings het gesê dat hy nie dink dat die rekords bestaan ​​nie.

Die saak sê dat Rawlings lasterlike verklarings oor Flaherty en die kroeg aan ander mense afgelê het en dat Flaherty Rawlings daaroor gekonfronteer het in 'n e -pos wat hy op 21 Julie 2016 gestuur het, waarin gesê word: 'U het my gekla dat ek oneerlik was en van u gesteel het. Ek het die afgelope twee jaar vir u gesê dat u die boeke te eniger tyd kan ondersoek. "

Rawlings het 'n antwoord gestuur wat lui: "My fout om drank en emosies te vermeng. Jammer daarvoor," volgens die pak.

Toe 'n koper van 'n derde party 'n ooreenkoms sou sluit om die regte op Gas Monkey Bar N 'Grill en Gas Monkey Live in 2017 te bekom, sê die regsgeding dat Rawlings Flaherty en die kroeg van oneerlikheid beskuldig en sy geld gesteel het, wat die ooreenkoms veroorsaak het. om deur te val.

Dit het gebeur nadat Rawlings in 2016 self die regte op die kroeg en musieklokaal probeer koop het, maar weens onvoldoende geld nie kon nie, lui die saak.

Die regsgeding beweer ook dat Rawlings en Pilgrim Films and Television dit oorweeg om hul eie onthaallokaal met 'n Gas Monkey-tema in Connecticut te open, en dat hulle die konsep van die kroeg se restaurant "wanaanwend".


Bud Light-brouer Anheuser-Busch beskuldig MillerCoors daarvan dat hy sy bierresepte gesteel het

In die jongste eskalasie van die regstryd tussen Anheuser-Busch InBev en MillerCoors, beskuldig die brouer Bud Light sy mededinger daarvan dat hy geheime resepte vir sy bier gesteel het, waaronder Michelob Ultra en Bud Light.

MillerCoors, die Amerikaanse filiaal van Molson Coors, het eers in Maart 'n regsgeding teen Anheuser-Busch aanhangig gemaak nadat sy mededinger 'n Super Bowl-advertensie uitgesaai het wat Miller Lite en Coors Light in die skande gesteek het vir die gebruik van mieliesiroop. In September het 'n federale regter 'n voorlopige bevel teen Anheuser-Busch uitgevaardig, wat die bierreus verhinder het om Bud Light-verpakking te gebruik wat sê & quotno corn stroop. & Quot Anheuser-Busch appelleer teen die besluit.

In 'n geredigeerde eis wat Donderdag ingedien is, beweer die Bud Light-brouer dat 'n voormalige werknemer wat nou by 'n MillerCoors-brouery in Colorado werk, inligting verkry het van huidige werknemers van Anheuser-Busch wat die vertroulikheidsooreenkomste in die dae voor en na die Super Bowl oortree het. Sommige van sy vrae het betrekking op die gebruik van mieliesiroop tydens die brouproses, beweer Anheuser-Busch in die aansoek.

Senior bestuurders van MillerCoors het die inligting gevra, en Gavin Hattersley, uitvoerende hoof, is op e -poskettings oor die bevindings ingesluit, lui die aansoek.

MillerCoors het na bewering ook dokumente gelewer wat die resepte van Bud Light en Michelob Ultra toon as deel van sy voortgesette saak teen Anheuser-Busch. Anheuser-Busch glo dat die resepte afdrukke was van skermopnames wat opgevou is, uit die brouery geneem is en per teks gestuur is.

Anheuser-Busch se indiening noem hierdie resepte buitengewoon waardevol, en noem Bud Light se status as die topverkoper bier in die VSA en Michelob Ultra as die vinnigste groeiende.

"Ons sal ons reg afdwing om te ontdek hoe hoog dit kan bereik in die MillerCoors-organisasie," het Anheuser-Busch in 'n verklaring gesê. & quot Ons neem ons handelsgeheime ernstig op en beskerm dit ten volle in die wet. & quot

Adam Collins, woordvoerder van MillerCoors, het in 'n verklaring gesê dat Anheuser-Busch drie uitsprake in die saak verloor het en probeer aflei van die feit dat hulle Amerikaanse verbruikers mislei het.

& quotMillerCoors respekteer vertroulike inligting en neem enige teenstrydige bewerings ernstig op, maar as die bestanddele 'n geheim is, waarom het hulle derduisende dollars bestee om die hele wêreld te vertel wat in Bud Light? En waarom word die bestanddele in reuse letters op Bud Light se verpakking gedruk? ”Het Collins gesê.


Pak van $ 25 miljoen blameer energie, bootmaatskappye wat dodelik omgeslaan het

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Die boot in die oliebedryf wat verlede week in 'n dodelike Golf van Mexiko -ramp omgeslaan het, is in gevaarlike omstandighede beveel om op see te gaan, deur 'n energiemaatskappy wat 'geld bo veiligheid' plaas, volgens 'n regsgeding van $ 25 miljoen.

Die regsgedinge is by die Texas -hof in Houston aanhangig gemaak deur 'n advokaat vir Hannah Daspit en Krista Vercher, albei uit Louisiana. Die man van Daspit, Dylan Daspit, en die verloofde van Vercher, Jay Guevara, was een van die 19 mense wat op die boot gewerk het toe dit in stormweer omgeslaan het. Ses mense is gered en ses liggame is gevind en geïdentifiseer. Vrydagmiddag. Dylan Daspit en Guevara was onder sewe vermiste en vermoedelik dood.

Haspit het Woensdag aansoek gedoen by die Texas -hof in Houston. Vercher, namens haarself en die kind van Guevara, dagvaar Vrydag. Beide die klagte, wat deur prokureur Francis Spagnoletti aanhangig gemaak is, skuld Talos Energy sowel as die hysbootoperateur Seacor Marine LLC en sy aangeslote Seacor Lifftboats LLC vir die noodlottige ongeluk.

Dit is die eerste van wat na verwagting talle regsgedinge sal wees oor die omslaan van die Seacor Power, 'n hysboot van 71 meter lank. Die vaartuig was onderweg van Port Fourchon, Louisiana, na 'n Talos -platform toe dit omgeslaan het.

'Dylan Daspit het sy lewe verloor in die tragiese ommeswaai van die vaartuig weens die besluit van hierdie beskuldigdes om geld oor sy lewe te sit,' het die Daspit -regsgeding gesê.

Die soortgelyke bewering wat Vrydag ingedien is, sê: "Krista Vercher het haar beter helfte verloor", en voeg by dat die kind van Guevara sy pa verloor het.

Die regsgedinge behels kwessies wat waarskynlik van kritieke belang sal wees in 'n ondersoek van die National Transportation Safety Board, wat na verwagting so lank as twee jaar sal neem, en in litigasie. Dit sluit die rol van die weer in die omslaan in, of die vaartuig ondanks voorspellings van storms op die see moes beland het en wie verantwoordelik gehou moes word.

Die pakke bevat talle bewerings teen die ondernemings, insluitend dat hulle nie die weersomstandighede voldoende beoordeel het nie en nie 'n noodplan gehad het nie. Die pakke beskuldig Talos spesifiek daarvan dat hy "die vaartuig as onbekende omstandighede op see laat beveel het".

Seacor het nie onmiddellik op versoeke om kommentaar gereageer nie. 'N Woordvoerder van Talos het gesê dat die maatskappy nie kommentaar lewer oor litigasie nie. Die maatskappy het egter reeds die besluit om die hawe te verlaat, aangespreek voordat die regsgeding ingedien is.

'Die Seacor Power was 'n paar dae voor die vertrek in die hawe vir diens en inspeksies,' het die maatskappy Saterdag gesê op 'n navraag deur The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate. Die vaartuig was nie by 'n Talos -fasiliteit nie en was ten volle onder bevel van sy kaptein en Seacor Marine, insluitend wanneer die hawe sou vertrek. Die verklaring is Vrydag deur woordvoerder Brian Grove bevestig.

Die kaptein van die vaartuig, David Ledet (63), was onder die dooies. Hy word nie in die regsgeding genoem nie.

Die voorspellings en advies van die Nasionale Weerdiens wat deur die Iowa State University geargiveer is, toon 'n spesiale mariene waarskuwing vir die waters by Port Fourchon, kort na 13 April. /h), wat tropiese stormwinde is, en 'skielik hoër golwe'.

“Bote kan skade opdoen of omslaan. Maak seker dat almal aan boord reddingsbaadjies dra. Keer terug na die veilige hawe, indien moontlik, ”lui die waarskuwing.

Tog was daar geen aanduiding voor die boot om 13:30 vertrek het nie. van die winde van meer as 129 km/h, wat verby orkaankrag is, en golwe van 7 tot 9 voet (2,1 tot 2,7 meter) wat die kuswag gesê het dat die boot teëgekom het teen die tyd dat dit omgeslaan het na 4 pm

John Gellert, president van Seacor, het gesê die voorspellings dui nie op die weer wat die boot nie kan hanteer nie.

'Die weer wat hulle na verwagting sou teëkom, was goed binne die perke van die vaartuig. Die weer wat hulle teëgekom het, was op hierdie tydstip ver bo die voorspelling, sover ons weet, ”het hy Maandag tydens 'n nuuskonferensie gesê.

Gellert het toe gesê dat die besluit of hy gaan of nie, die kaptein is. Hy het ook gesê Ledet het die onderneming se volle ondersteuning.

Maricopa County se GOP -opnemer: daar is geen wettige rede vir oudit nie

Stephen Richer, opnemer van Maricopa County, het Maandag gesê dat hy geen ander keuse gehad het as om sy stem te weerstaan ​​teen die oudit van die 2,1 miljoen stembriewe wat tydens sy presidentsverkiesing in sy land uitgebring is nie. Arizona se GOP-geleide staats senaat het dagvaardings gebruik om die stembriewe, stemmasjiene en persoonlike inligting oor kiesers te kry, en het 'n cyberveiligheidsfirma in Florida genaamd die Cyber ​​Ninjas aangestel om die oudit uit te voer. Daar is geen 'wettige rede' wat hierdie oudit sou veroorsaak het nie, 'het Richer, 'n Republikein, aan ABC News Live gesê The Breakdown. Dit gebeur, nie omdat die bewyse dit verdien nie. Al die toetse het skoon teruggekom. Die partye het self toesig gehou oor die kontrole van 47 000 plus stemme. & Quot Cyber ​​Ninjas het geen ervaring met verkiesings nie, en die uitvoerende hoof het getweet ter ondersteuning van die voormalige president Donald Trump se vals bewering dat hy werklik Arizona gewen het, nie president Biden nie. Richer het gesê dat dit 'frustrerend' is dat professionele, wettige ondernemings wel 'n bod aan die senaat van Arizona gedoen het om hierdie werk te doen, en ons sou dit verwelkom het. stukkend met die stemmasjiene, en aangesien verkiesingsamptenare nie weet wat Cyber ​​Ninjas aan die masjiene gedoen het nie, kan dit nie in toekomstige verkiesings gebruik word nie. Richer het aan The Breakdown gesê hy beplan om stil te bly tydens die oudit, maar toe 'n anonieme Twitter -rekening Maricopa County valslik daarvan beskuldig het dat hy kieserslêers uitgevee het - 'n bewering wat Trump vinnig kon versterk - het dit die grens oorskry. Ek wou hiervan bly, maar as die goeie werkers van Maricopa County - my vriende, my spanmaats, my personeel - daarvan beskuldig word dat hulle onwettig getuienis onder my toesig vernietig het, dan moes ek iets sê. & Quot; Maricopa County, hy bygevoeg, bepaal nou of hy aanklagte van laster kan vervolg.

Besonderhede: die sanger het gepraat oor die traumatiese gebeurtenis tydens 'n verskyning in The Me You Can't See, prins Harry en Oprah se nuwe program wat geestesgesondheid ondersoek

Gaga, wat nog nooit die naam van die vervaardiger genoem het nie, uit vrees dat hy hom weer sou sien, het gesê sy het te midde van die aanranding verduister en haarself gesuiwer deur vir 'n lang tyd fisiek siek te wees om die pyn te hanteer.

'Ek is nie hier om my storie aan jou te vertel nie, want ek wil hê dat iemand vir my moet huil. Ek is goed. Maar maak u hart oop vir iemand anders. Omdat ek dit vir jou sê, ek het dit deurgemaak en mense het hulp nodig. Dit is dus deel van my genesing, om met u te kan praat. '

Volgens die sangster het sy 'n diagnose van fibromialgie gekry, maar ook by PTSD, 'n toestand wat wydverspreide pyn en uiterste moegheid veroorsaak.

Sy het gesê: 'Ek is herhaaldelik verkrag toe ek 19 was, en ek het ook PTSD ontwikkel as gevolg van verkragting en ek het ook nie die trauma verwerk nie.

'Ek het niemand laat help nie, ek het nie 'n terapeut gehad nie, ek het nie 'n psigiater gehad nie, ek het nie 'n dokter gehad om my daardeur te help nie', het sy gesê.

'Ek het skielik 'n ster geword en het deur die wêreld gegaan van hotelkamer na motorhuis na limousine na verhoog, en ek het dit nooit hanteer nie, en skielik het ek hierdie ongelooflike intense pyn deur my hele liggaam begin ervaar wat die siekte naboots wat ek gevoel het nadat ek verkrag is. '

Gaga het gesê hoe sy, nadat sy hulp gesoek het, gevind het dat medikasie haar gehelp het.

Die inwoner van New York het vroeër in 'n onderhoud met Howard Stern in 2014 oor haar ervaring vertel en gesê dat dit haar liedjie Swing geïnspireer het.

Sy het gesê: 'Ek het deur 'n paar gruwelike dinge gegaan waaroor ek nou kan lag, omdat ek deur die jare baie geestelike en fisiese terapie en emosionele terapie ondergaan het om te genees.

'My musiek was wonderlik vir my. Maar, jy weet, ek was op 'n stadium 'n dop van my vorige self. Ek was nie myself nie.

'Om eerlik te wees, ek was omtrent 19. Ek was baie naïef. '

Wat is posttraumatiese stresversteuring (PTSD)?

Post-traumatiese stresversteuring (PTSV) is 'n angsversteuring wat veroorsaak word deur baie stresvolle, skrikwekkende of ontstellende gebeurtenisse.

Mense met PTSD ly dikwels aan nagmerries en terugflitse oor die traumatiese gebeurtenis en kan slaaploosheid en 'n onvermoë om te konsentreer ervaar.

Simptome is dikwels ernstig genoeg om 'n ernstige impak op die persoon se daaglikse lewe te hê, en kan onmiddellik na die traumatiese gebeurtenis of jare later na vore kom.

Daar word vermoed dat PTSD ongeveer een uit elke drie mense wat 'n traumatiese ervaring het, affekteer, en is die eerste keer in die Eerste Wêreldoorlog by soldate met dopskok gedokumenteer.

Mense wat bekommerd is dat hulle PTSS het, moet hul huisarts besoek, wat 'n kursus psigoterapie of antidepressante kan aanbeveel, sê die NHS.

Op die vraag of sy ooit die verkragter, wat 20 jaar ouer as sy was, gekonfronteer het, het sy gesê: 'Ek dink dit sal my bang maak. Dit sal my lamlê.

'Ek het hom een ​​keer in 'n winkel gesien en ek was so verlam van vrees. Omdat ek eers 'n bietjie ouer was, het ek gesê: "Wow, dit was regtig deurmekaar."

Die Bad Romance -sanger het aan Stern gesê dat sy op die oomblik toe sy plaasgevind het oor die aanranding nie gepraat het nie, aangesien sy 'so getraumatiseer was dat ek net moes aanhou en daar wegkom'.

Sy het bygevoeg: 'Dit gebeur elke dag en dit is regtig eng, en dit is hartseer, en jy weet, dit het my nie so direk geraak soos ongeveer vier of vyf jaar later nie. Dit was so moeilik. '

Gaga het gesê dat sy aanvanklik 'nie eens bereid was om toe te gee dat iets selfs gebeur het nie', omdat sy nie 'daardeur gedefinieer wil word nie.

'Ek sal verdoem wees as iemand sal sê dat elke kreatief intelligente ding wat ek ooit gedoen het, op een kop afkom wat dit aan my gedoen het. Ek gaan verantwoordelikheid neem vir al my pyn wat mooi lyk ... ek het dit gedoen. '

Gaga het verlede jaar in 'n onderhoud met In Style gepraat oor haar geestesgesondheid, ses jaar nadat sy haar ontstellende verhaal gedeel het.

'Ek dink dit het my tyd geneem om te treur oor die dinge wat met my gebeur het, en ek kon nie kwaad wees vir myself oor hoe lank dit geneem het nie,' het sy gesê.

'Ek was depressief, was by die kruidenierswinkel en het foto's van myself gesien en gesê:' Dit lyk asof alles goed is '. Maar ek het in die geheim geraak, en die wêreld het geen idee gehad nie. Of sommige mense in die wêreld.

Die sanger het bygevoeg: 'Ek haat die gebruik van die frase' die wêreld ', dit is so egosentries om aan te neem dat die hele wêreld aan my dink of weet. Dit doen dit nie. '

Intussen het prins Harry in openhartige onderhoude met Oprah Winfrey oor sy nuwe program onthul dat hy ontmoedig was om sy geestesgesondheid as 'n kind te bespreek na die skielike dood van sy ma, en toe hy sy gesin onlangs om hulp wou vra - toe Meghan beweer sy voel selfmoord - hy word 'met totale stilte' en verwaarlosing ontmoet.

Hy het gesê: 'Ek het gedink dat my gesin sou help, maar elke vraag, versoek, waarskuwing, wat dit ook al is, word net met totale stilte, totale verwaarlosing ontmoet.

'Ons het vier jaar lank probeer om dit te laat werk. Ons het alles in ons vermoë gedoen om daar te bly en die rol te vervul en die werk te doen. Maar Meghan sukkel. '

Harry sê die manier waarop Meghan gevoel het, herinner hom aan die laaste dae van sy eie ma.

Bewerings: Harry het gesê sy gesin het probeer om te keer dat hy en Megan weggaan as sy selfmoordgedagtes het

'Die geskiedenis herhaal homself,' het Harry aan Oprah gesê. 'My ma is agtervolg terwyl sy in 'n verhouding was met iemand wat nie wit was nie. En kyk nou wat gebeur het.

'Dit is ongelooflik opwindend om 'n ander vrou in my lewe moontlik te verloor. Soos die lys groei. En dit kom alles terug na dieselfde mense, dieselfde sakemodel, dieselfde bedryf, 'het hy gesê.

Die prins bespreek sy versuim om die hartseer na die dood van sy ma te verwerk, oor die hulpeloosheid wat hy gevoel het om haar te beskerm teen sy afhanklikheid van dwelms en alkohol om die pyn van sy angs en gevoel van vasgekeer in die paleis te verdoof en hoe terapie hom gehelp het ' siklus. '

In trane breek: Oprah huil terwyl sy met Harry praat tydens die emosionele onderhoud

'Vir my het terapie my toegerus om enigiets aan te pak,' het hy gesê.

Op die vraag of hy spyt is, sê hy dat dit nie vroeër standpunt inneem in sy verhouding met Meghan nie.

'Uiteindelik, toe ek die besluit vir my gesin neem, is daar steeds vir my gesê:' U kan dit nie doen nie ', vertel Harry aan Oprah. 'En dit is soos:' Wel, hoe erg moet dit wees totdat ek dit mag doen? ' Sy [Markle] gaan haar lewe beëindig. Dit behoort nie daarby uit te kom nie. '

Trauma: Harry het gesê dat hy voel asof die geskiedenis homself herhaal toe Megan selfmoord gevoel het, wat hom aan die dood van sy ma herinner. Hy is regs saam met sy broer, William, op die begrafnis van prinses Diana in 1997

Die opvallende kenmerk van die vertoning kom toe 'n 13-jarige Harry tydens die begrafnis in Londen in 1997 by die begrafnis in Londen by sy begrafnis in Londen gesien word hoe die kis van sy ma-dié van Diana, prinses van Wallis-by hom verbygaan.

Prins Charles kan met sy hartseer seun praat terwyl 'n vroulike voice -over oor dramatiese musiek sê: 'Om mense met waardigheid te behandel is die eerste daad'.

Harry sê vir Oprah: 'Om die besluit te neem om hulp te ontvang, is nie 'n teken van swakheid nie. In die hedendaagse wêreld is dit meer as ooit 'n teken van sterkte. '

Die program het ook onderhoude gehad met die aktrise Glenn Close en die Amerikaanse talkshow -koningin Oprah self, asook 'n rolprent oor 'n Siriese vlugteling genaamd Fawzi, beskryf as 'n held op die program.

Prins Harry word na berig word nie betaal vir sy betrokkenheid by die reeks nie, en volgens Hello! Het hy gekies om donasies aan liefdadigheid vir geestesgesondheid te gee in ruil vir sy betrokkenheid by die program.

Die hertog van Sussex is saam met Winfrey 'n uitvoerende vervaardiger van The Me You Can't See, wat Vrydag op Apple TV+ verskyn het.

Kan hulle dit regkry? Kenners het gesê dat hulle nou van Harry verwag om weer oor sy gesin te praat en oor die besluit van sy en sy vrou om as koninklike in die rol van die koninklike op te hou in die komende dokumentêr

'Ek is sielkundig getraumatiseerd': Glenn Close (74) sê dat sy grootword in 'n kultus veroorsaak het dat al haar verhoudings misluk het toe sy emosioneel verskyn op prins Harry se Apple TV+ doc

Glenn Close het die 'verwoestende' impak van grootword in 'n kultus onthul.

Die 74-jarige aktrise het emosioneel verskyn op prins Harry en Oprah se nuwe Apple TV+ -dokumente oor geestesgesondheid, The Me You Can't See, en het openlik gepraat oor haar kinderjare trauma.

Toe sy nog 'n kind was, het Glenn se oorlede vader, dr William Taliaferro Close, verlief geraak op 'n konserwatiewe nuwe godsdienstige groep Moral Re-Armament.

Uiteindelik het hy die gesin na die organisasie se hoofkwartier in Switserland verhuis, wat Glenn effektief afgesny het van die lewe wat sy eens geken het.

Candid: Glenn Close onthul die 'verwoestende' impak van grootword in 'n kultus in 'n emosionele voorkoms op prins Harry en Oprah se nuwe Apple TV+ geestesgesondheidsdokumente

Glenn het oor haar traumatiese ervaring in die program gesê: 'Ek was in hierdie groep genaamd MRA en dit was basies 'n kultus, almal het dieselfde dinge uitgelê en daar is baie reëls, baie beheer.

'Omdat ons grootgemaak is, word alles wat u gedink het u vir uself sou doen, as selfsugtig beskou. Ons het nooit op vakansies gegaan nie, of het ons kollektiewe herinneringe gehad aan dinge anders as wat ons deurgemaak het, wat regtig vreeslik was. '

Met 'n uiteensetting van die impak wat dit op haar geestesgesondheid gehad het, verduidelik Glenn: 'Ons was so uitmekaar. Dit is verstommend dat iets wat jy op so 'n jong stadium in jou lewe deurmaak nog steeds so 'n potensiaal het om vernietigend te wees.

'Ek dink dit is trauma in die kinderjare weens die verwoesting, emosioneel en sielkundig, van die kultus.'

Emotional: Glenn, who has been married three times, stated, 'I have not been successful in my relationships and finding a permanent partner and I'm sorry about that'

Childhood: When Glenn was seven, her parents entered the controversial international spiritual movement Moral Re-Armament (pictured centre with sister Tina and her parents)

Glenn, who has been married three times, added: 'I have not been successful in my relationships and finding a permanent partner and I'm sorry about that.

'I think it's our natural state to be connected like that. I don't think you ever change your trigger points but at least you can be aware of them and at least you can maybe avoid situations that might make you vulnerable, especially in relationships'.

Laughing, she added: 'It's probably why we all have our dogs!'

Second marriage: Glenn was married to businessman James Marlas from 1984 to 1987 (pictured in 1984) after leaving the cult

When Glenn was seven, her parents entered the controversial international spiritual movement Moral Re-Armament – revolving around the idea that changing the world begins with change in the individual – founded in 1938 by the Rev Frank Buchman, an evangelical fundamentalist from Pennsylvania.

Glenn and her siblings were sent to live at the group's headquarters in Switzerland for two years while their father was in Africa, and the family would remain part of MRA for 15 years.

Glenn was left having nightmares about her time with MRA and has spoken openly of the time she's spent in therapy, while her sister Jessie grew up with mental health issues and had several disastrous marriages before being diagnosed as bipolar in her 50s.

Third marriage: In 2015, Glenn divorced her third husband David Shaw in 2015 after nine years of marriage

It was while she was in the movement that Glenn sang with the ultra-clean-cut group Up With People, and it was there too that she met her first two husbands.

The first marriage, which she has called 'a kind of arranged marriage', ended before she even left MRA. She wed Cabot Wade, a guitarist and songwriter in 1969, with the couple divorcing three years later.

She finally broke with MRA – she's never spoken of how – to enter the prestigious College of William and Mary in Virginia to study drama at the age of 22.

During this time she was married to businessman James Marlas from 1984 to 1987.

Former flame: Glenn has also been in relationships with actor Len Cariou and producer John Starke (pictured) with whom she has a daughter Annie, 27

Proud mother: Glenn's daughter Annie Starke, 33, is also an actress and the pair have a strong bond with one another

In 2015, Glenn divorced her third husband David Shaw in 2015 after nine years of marriage.

WHO ARE THE MORAL RE-ARMAMENT GROUP?

Glenn's family joined the Moral Re-Armament (MRA) when she was seven.

In 2001, the movement was renamed Initiatives of Change,

The group is an international moral and spiritual movement developed from American minister Frank Buchman's Oxford Group - a Christian organisation.

Initiatives of Change has spiritual roots but no religious affiliation, and invites 'those with a faith. both to explore the roots of their own tradition, and to discover and respect the beliefs of others.'

Initiatives of Change has programs in over 60 countries including the US, India, UK and Switzerland.

They describe themselves as 'a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.'

Glenn has also been in relationships with actor Len Cariou and producer John Starke, with whom she has a daughter Annie, 27.

She was also engaged for four years to carpenter Steve Beer whom she met while starring in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway in the mid-1990s.

The actress was also romantically linked to actor Robert Pastorelli who found fame as Candice Bergen's house painter in the TV series Murpy Brown.

The pair met in 1999 and Pastorelli went on to star opposite Close in a TV version of the musical South Pacific in 2001 and on stage opposite her in a 2002 production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Pastorelli was found dead in his Hollywood Hills home in 2004 at the age of 49.

Elsewhere in the interview, Glenn spoke about the mental health problems that have plagued her family, including her sister's battle with bipolar and her nephew's schizophrenia diagnosis.

Reflecting on her decision to stay separate from Hollywood and return to Montana to be along her family, she said: 'H ere I am at this point in my life after 45 years that I've been an actress, getting comfort and companionship on a regular basis from my family. I've come home to them'.

Glenn grew up alongside elder sisters Tina and younger sibling Jessie, who battled with her own mental health demons throughout her life.

Glenn said being around her sisters has kept her 'psychologically grounded', but grew emotional as she spoke about Jessie's struggles.

Jessie was diagnosed with bipolar at the age of 50 after a lifetime of struggling with suicidal thoughts.

Glenn recalled: 'Jessie was always considered the wild one, the rebel, but when she came up to me one summer at my parents house in Wyoming, her kids were already in the car, and she came up to me and said "I need help, I can't stop thinking about killing myself", and for me it was a shock.

'She ended up in hospital I took her there. She was finally at age 50 properly diagnosed with bipolar one with psychotic tendencies.'

Speaking out: Elsewhere in the interview, Glenn spoke about the mental health problems that have plagued her family, including her sister's battle with bipolar

Welling up, Glenn continued: 'Jessie told me that she was afraid if parents found out that she had bipolar,they wouldn't let their children play with her daughter '.

Jessie then addressed the camera to add: 'I still have a little hesitation and embarrassment when I say I'm depressive bipolar one.

'I'm quite steady now, I no longer have psychotic thoughts. I had a swirl going round my brain telling me to kill myself until I was on the proper medication. It's not fun having a voice in your head telling you to commit suicide all the time, and if it wasn't for my children I probably would have.'

Jessie then spoke about more mental illness in their family, revealing that her eldest son Calen had been hospitalised for two years with schizophrenia and her battle to ensure he was cared for.

'It was a generational issue': Robin Williams' son Zak, 38, says his battle with addiction mirrored his late fathers and vows to 'break the cycle' with his own son on Prince Harry's Apple TV+ doc

Robin Williams' son has claimed his struggle with drink and drugs was 'generational' as he noted the similarities with his father's addiction battle.

Appearing on Prince Harry and Oprah's new Apple TV+ mental health docuseries, The Me You Can't See, Zak Williams, 38, also vowed to 'break the cycle' now that he is a father himself.

Zak's late father Robin had a widely documented battle with addiction before he was found dead in his home in 2014 from suicide aged 63 .

Robin had publicly acknowledged his issues and even managed a 20-year stint of sobriety before relapsing.

However, Zak revealed that he too struggled with his own demons, and continued to use abusive substances throughout his father's life.

He explained: 'There's a generational issue going on. I've experienced mental health issues my entire life.

'I had obsessive compulsive disorder - having to count out certain actions before I went to bed at night, obsessing over things. I didn't sleep very much as a kid.

'I had really bad insomnia, a lot of energy and a racing mind and I inherited that to some degree.'

New man: Appearing on Prince Harry and Oprah's new Apple TV+ mental health docuseries, The Me You Can't See, Zak Williams, 38, also vowed to 'break the cycle' now that he is a father

Explaining how that lead to drug abuse, he continued: 'As an adolescent I found using alcohol and drugs helped me calm my mind.

'It became a very normal experience to rely on them and things like that to manage the racing mind.

'I started to realise elements of myself that were like him [Robin]. My anxiety, my bouts of depression, OCD, drugs, drinking like him.

'When I wasn't self-medicating, things felt completely overwhelming for me. And it just became part of my identity to get through the day.'

Heartbreaking: Zak's late father Robin had a widely documented battle with addiction before he was found dead in his home in 2014 from suicide (pictured in 2008)

Noting yet more similarities with his father, Zak continued: 'The weird thing for me is I would use uppers, cocaine and the like to calm down. I talked to my dad about it, he was similar.

'He would use uppers as a way of focusing, relaxing. We began to have a deeper, more profound understanding of one another is when he decided to stop drinking, which is around the time that I first realised I had a problem.

'So we engaged around that. I wanted to be able to get to know him better, I didn't understand what he had been through.'

Zak went on to note that he noticed the 'frustration' in his father after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's, saying the comedian was 'slowly drifting', while Zak continued to drink and became 'overwhelmed and exasperated'.

Struggles: Zak's late father Robin had a widely documented battle with addiction before he was found dead in his home in 2014 from suicide

Zak was Robin's only child with ex-wife Valerie Velardi. The comedian was also father to daughter Zelda, 31, and son Cody, 29, from his marriage to Marsha Garces.

Robin's drug and alcohol problems first arose while he was still appearing in Mork & Mindy- right at the start of his fame.

He had acknowledged drug and alcohol problems in the 1970s and `80s and was among the last to see John Belushi before the Saturday Night Live star died of a drug overdose in 1982.

He would later call the death of his good friend Belushi from cocaine and heroin overdose part of why he chose to go sober for the next 20 years.

'Was it a wake-up call? Oh yeah, on a huge level,' he once said.

Struggles: Zak's journey to sobriety was challenging, as he explained how he went off the rails following his father's death

His struggle would continue for decades.

In 2006, Williams relapsed and described his family's reaction to the news in a September 2013 Parade Magazine interview:

'It was not an intervention so much as an ultimatum. Everyone kind of said, "You’ve got to do this." And I went, "Yeah, you’re right."'

His divorce from his wife of 19 years and mother of two of his three children, film producer Marsha Garces, came a couple of years later and many outside his family's inner circle opening suspected his substance abuse struggles were to blame.

Zak's journey to sobriety was equally as challenging, as he explained how he went off the rails following his father's death.

Detailing the challenges of grieving in public, Zak spoke about the challenges of grieving publicly and being unable to speak through issues with his father before his untimely death.

Cute couple: After turning his life around, Zak married his girlfriend of two years, Olivia June, on World Mental Health Day in October last year

Zak explained: 'My life became unmanageable as part of that. I was just angry and sad and didn't want to feel anything so it just created wreckage.

'I was drinking to excess, damaging my relationship with my family I was experiencing psychosis. It was difficult for me to have just normal engagements with people, because I felt so broken and so isolated. I needed help.

'I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and that was a wake-up call. I needed to change my life. I had to cut out the self medicating and experience the things that I needed to experience and just feel despite how painful it all felt.'

It was through his healing journey that Zak wanted to help others, and began working with mental health organisations.

Mickey: Olivia and Zak named their son McLaurin after Robin's middle name. 'Mickey' for short, the pair welcomed him into the world in May 2019

After turning his life around, Zak married his girlfriend of two years, Olivia June, on World Mental Health Day in October last year, and the couple share two-year-old son McLaurin aka Mickey, named after Robin's middle name.

Revealing that his son spurs him on to stay on the right path, Zak added: 'I'm committed to being sober and continuing to treat the underlying symptoms that lead me to addictive behaviour.

'It's only in hindsight that you see "wow there's a generational issue going on".

'I love being a parent, it's the best thing ever. Do I see it as an opportunity to break a generational cycle? Yeah, there's a major opportunity to show up for my son clear eyed and focused. To be there for him.'

Determined: Revealing that his son spurs him on to stay on the right path, Zak added he was 'determined' to break the depressive and addictive 'generational' cycle in his family


'A Star Is Born' Actress Lady Gaga Spills the Hidden Meaning Behind &ldquoShallow&rdquo Song Lyrics

The Oscar-nominated duet with Bradley Cooper has such a beautiful message.

If you've bawled your eyes out listening to the songs from the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, rest assured, you're definitely not alone.

Particularly, "Shallow," the duet between Lady Gaga en Bradley Cooper, seems to be resonating with so many. On Youtube, the Oscar-nominated song, which Gaga co-wrote, has over 300 million views so far. Apart from that, it became the "Born This Way" singer's longest-leading number one on Advertensiebord's Digital Song Sales chart ever.

But what is it about this song that makes people get such a big lump in their throats whenever they hear it? While the lyrics of the tune probably mean something different to each person who listens to it, Lady Gaga told Verskeidenheid that the song doesn't just connect Ally (Gaga) and Jackson's (Cooper) romance. That's the "shallow," if you will. What's actually happening in "the deep end" is something much more profound, she says.

The Best Actress nominee sees the lyrics having special meaning, especially in light of the #MeToo movement:

And so, with "Shallow," she says the words signify a time when men and women are having an open dialogue with each other.

"That conversation is what makes the song successful and beautiful and why people cry when they hear it," Gaga said. "It&rsquos because that man and woman connect, and they are listening to each other."

It's a message that Gaga is hoping to get across when she performs the song next with Bradley at the 2019 Oscars. Apart from the awards show, you can also catch them belting out the moving hymn in the below video from one of Gaga's recent Vegas residency shows. It goes without saying, but make sure the tissues aren't too far out of reach when you do.


11 Cymbalta Side Effects You Should Know About

Depression. Anxiety. Obsessive compulsive disorder. Fibromyalgia. These are just a few of the reasons why you might be prescribed Cymbalta.

Cymbalta (generic name duloxetine) is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor&mdasha.k.a. SNRI&mdashwhich makes it a bit different from other antidepressants like Prozac, says Gail Saltz, M.D., is a psychiatrist and the author of The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius. That's because Prozac is an SSRI (selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitor), and only affects serotonin.

Because Cymbalta also affects norepinephrine, it&rsquos used to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic musculosckeletal pain in addition to depression and a variety of anxiety disorders. It&rsquos additionally used off-label (meaning the FDA does not endorse but allows) for OCd and picking or habit disorders like pulling out hair (trichotillomania) or severe nail biting.

Antidepressants like Cymbalta can be life-changing for the many people who use them, but like any drugs, they pose risks. &ldquoSome people be more sensitive to side effects, and some people will have none at all,&rdquo says Saltz. &ldquoUsually it will go away within about two weeks, once you&rsquore used to the dose.&rdquo

Here are 11 Cymbalta side effects that you should know about.

The goal with antidepressants is to reduce major symptoms and then taper off after about nine months, Saltz says.

But it can be hard to quit Cymbalta when the time comes, in large part due to withdrawal symptoms. One study found that dizziness, nausea, headaches, and paresthesia (commonly called &ldquobrain zaps,&rdquo or a sensation of electric shock in the brain) were common when going off the drug. Withdrawal symptoms lasted about two weeks on average.

The longer you&rsquore on Cymbalta, the more likely it is to be an issue. And the risks of staying on the drug for the long-term are unknown. &ldquoWhat we do know is it is always important for everyone to taper off slowly [and under doctor supervision]. Abruptly stopping is much more likely to produce symptoms,&rdquo she says.

People 24 and younger may experience thoughts of suicide on Cymbalta. According to the FDA, the risk is greatest in those under the age of 18 and elevated in people ages 18 to 24.

This may be because Cymbalta can worse or cause symptoms including anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, hypomania, and mania.

At the same time, suicide risk actually decreases in people 25 and over, particularly among people over the age of 65.

&ldquoAny of these drugs may increase suicidal thoughts in periods of time when there&rsquos a big shift&mdashwhen you&rsquore starting or raising a dose,&rdquo says Saltz. &ldquoThe numbers aren&rsquot big, so we don&rsquot know who will be affected.&rdquo

No getting around this one: Pretty much all antidepressants have the potential to zap your sex drive. In fact, low libido is one of the most common side effects of drugs like Cymbalta&mdashalthough it doesn&rsquot affect everyone.

If it does, your doctor might try decreasing your dose and/or your therapist may offer behavioral tricks to get around it. &ldquoSometimes it goes away. Other times it may be intolerable, in which case it might not be a drug that&rsquos good for you,&rdquo says Saltz.

If you find that you feel super-fatigued on Cymbalta, your doctor may suggest taking it at night before bed, when drowsiness isn&rsquot a problem, or taking a divided dose, says Saltz.

While drugs like antihistamines don&rsquot interact with SNRIs, your doctor will also advise you to skip them because, in combination, these two drugs can make you extra-drowsy.

With both SSRIs and SNRIs, increased blood pressure is possible. &ldquoThink of when you get a big adrenaline rush. You get basal restriction, which causes your blood pressure to go up,&rdquo says Saltz. A similar reaction can happen when you&rsquore taking Cymbalta.

For most people, especially younger people, it&rsquos not an issue. But if you already have borderline or high blood pressure, your doctor will want to keep an extra close eye on you.

Some people experience light-headedness or dizziness, especially when they first start Cymbalta. &ldquoIt has to do with a shift in blood pressure. You&rsquoll want to get up slowly from lying positions,&rdquo says Saltz. If it continues, or really bothers you, definitely check in with your doctor.

Both medications and alcohol are metabolized&mdashi.e. processed&mdashby your liver, and consuming either in high levels can cause jaundice and other more serious liver problems. &ldquoLiver problems are pretty rare but bad,&rdquo says Saltz.

The risk rises if you drink alcohol while taking Cymbalta: One drink is more like two. Certain other drugs, including some OTC ones, can also potentially interact with Cymbalta and be hard on your liver. &ldquoThat&rsquos why it&rsquos very important to discuss all other medications you&rsquore taking with your doctor,&rdquo Saltz says.

In very rare instances, taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, warfarin, and other anti-coagulants while on Cymbalta can cause excessive bleeding. &ldquoTalk to doctor before you take those meds,&rdquo says Saltz.

One very rare but serious side effect of Cymbalta and other antidepressants is serotonin syndrome. &ldquoRaising serotonin levels a certain amount can be helpful, but a lot can cause toxicity and even kill you,&rdquo explains Saltz. If you experience fast heartbeat, loss of coordination, extremely restlessness, agitation, and/or hallucinations, tell your doctor right away, who will likely take you off of the medication immediately.

Overdose can also be a problem. &ldquoSomeone who purposely took a bottle might say they&rsquore only antidepressants, but it&rsquos very dangerous. And if your kid gets a hold of a bottle, call poison control and head to the ER right away,&rdquo says Saltz.

Gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, constipation, and heartburn are not as rare as overdose or death, but they&rsquore obviously not as serious, either. Other milder symptoms include headaches, dry mouth, loss of appetite, and night sweats. &ldquoWe try to figure out if they can be managed over time. They can go away, but they don&rsquot always,&rdquo says Saltz.

One last word of warning: Be sure to let your doctor know if you have a family or personal history of bipolar disorder, because antidepressants may increase your likelihood of becoming manic. &ldquoIf you experience periods of time of where you feel highly agitated and irritable or overly confident and sped up, ask your doctor,&rdquo says Saltz. &ldquoIt&rsquos not that you wouldn&rsquot be prescribed an antidepressant, but you really want to be cautious. You&rsquod be checked more frequently and might be put on a mood stabilizer instead.&rdquo


Why Amazon Will Gain From Loss On Lady Gaga's Born This Way

Lady Gaga's new album: Amazon's best million-dollar loss.

The more copies Lady Gaga's Born This Way sells, the more money Amazon loses. At face value, that sounds like a terrible situation for an online retail giant hawking the most anticipated record of the year. On closer inspection, though, Amazon's decision to sell the album for .99 per copy--at a significant loss--amounts to more of a shrewd advertising outlay than a pricey publicity stunt.

Lady Gaga's manager has denied any involvement with the promotion, leading some outlets to speculate that Amazon paid a wholesale price of $8.39 for Born This Way (based on the fact that Apple's iTunes is selling the album for $11.99 per album and keeps 30% of sticker price). But a source informs me that Amazon negotiated with Interscope/Universal to pay a wholesale price of $7. That means the retailer is taking a somewhat smaller hit of about $6 per album sold. Numbers haven't been released, but the deal's first-day traffic "definitely melted some servers," according to an Amazon spokesperson.

So how many copies will actually be sold? Though the promotion was initially billed as a one-day event, Amazon brought back its .99 offer today. The company has never moved more than 100,000 copies of an album in a week, but with prognosticators projecting total sales of 800,000 copies in Born This Way's first week, Amazon will likely shatter that mark with ease. Some insiders believe Amazon will sell 200,000 copies of Gaga's album, meaning the retailer would be taking a loss of about $1.2 million.

Even so, it's a big win for Amazon, as the promotion amounts to a massive advertisement. Stars of Gaga's magnitude generally charge exorbitant rates to dish out product endorsements, if they're willing to do so at all. Toby Keith, for example, gets about $5 million annually for his relationship with Ford. Gaga herself reportedly received $1 million from a Russian billionaire who wanted to make a cameo in the video for her song "Alejandro."

"Amazon would have had to pay millions to get a [traditional] endorsement from Lady Gaga," says John Branca, an entertainment attorney who's represented Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones and others. "The promotion is great for Amazon because they get new customers and they advertise their new service. It's great for Lady Gaga as well because she moves some copies and her fans get the record for a buck."

Indeed, paying $1.2 million for a Gaga-related promotion during the week of her album launch seems like a bargain, especially considering that Amazon recently rolled out its much-anticipated Cloud Drive music service. Even if the .99 deal doesn't translate directly into a seven-figure sales boost for Amazon, the word-of-mouth alone would appear to be worth the cost.

"It definitely grabs mind space," says entertainment attorney Donald David, whose client list includes Tupac Shakur. "I'm 63 yrs old. I'm not your ideal candidate for cloud computing for storing music. But even I, from all the news coverage, know about this. And the people who buy the album are the ideal demographic."

As for Gaga, the Amazon boost will likely pale in comparison to what she makes on the road--she's been grossing $1.3 million per concert. And in any case, it's just a drop in her ever-growing earnings bucket: Gaga topped FORBES' annual Celeb 100 list with earnings of $90 million over the past 12 months.

UPDATE: Advertensiebord is reporting that Amazon sold 430,000 copies of the .99 version of Lady Gaga's Born This Way during its two promotion days (a deluxe version with three more songs sold an estimated 10,000 additional copies). That would bring Amazon's loss to about $2.6 million over two days, by my math. It'd also mean Amazon sold four times as many units of the album as Apple's iTunes--another reason why the promotion was worthwhile.

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are storming the pop charts this week with “Rain On Me”

Courtesy of Youtube

The weather forecast for his week calls for rain. Before Lady Gaga released her new album “Chromatica,” she let us have a taste of what is to come with a second single. “Rain On Me” featuring Ariana Grande was teased for weeks, with album art that resembled cover art from an old-school PlayStation 1 game. Then on the evening of Thursday, May 21, the song was released with the music video coming out the following day.

In an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music , Lady Gaga commented that this song, as well as her new album, “Chromatica,” works as her return to pop and the reclaiming of her dancefloor. Fans of Gaga, as well as fans of Grande, are left with no other choice but to dance.

“Rain On Me” is a combination of dance-pop, electropop, disco and house. The song was produced by Bloodpop, who has worked with Gaga previously, but Grande was also present in the production of the song, even receiving writer’s credit.

It was refreshing to see the deep involvement of Ariana Grande, as artists all around have not taken this level of involvement in collaborations. This allowed for the song to feel as if it belonged to both artists. Grande also talked to Apple Music, where she mentioned that the friendship she has with Gaga allowed for trust during the recording process, and thus pushed both artists to try new things and get out of their comfort zones.

Lady Gaga describes the lyrics as multidimensional. The concept of “Rain On Me” touches on her past with alcohol. “I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive. Rain on me” is a lyric about how she would rather not have to drink, but at least she is still alive and she is in a position in which she can only rise. This may not be super clear to casual listeners, but the song does have an uplifting vibe.

From the first few chords, the song sounds like a pop banger with high energy in the tempo and a powerful baseline. After the first bridge, Grande comes into the song very swiftly, with a higher tempo than what we have been used to. Grande’s style in “Rain On Me” aligns more with her dance roots on her album “My Everything.” Her vocals are soft yet powerful, which worked really well with Gaga’s strong vocals. The harmonies between the two are very particular in a good way, but they could be polarizing. It seems as if Gaga let Grande put an air of gracefulness with her voice while Gaga focused on using her vocals to add more of an edge. This helped to make the song sound more like collaboration rather than just a song with a feature. Overall the song has a new and fresh feel while still feeling familiar among Gaga’s discography and even Grande’s.

The music video carries a similar aesthetic as Gaga’s previous music video for “Stupid Love,” as well as Grande’s music video for “Break Free” featuring Zedd. A collaboration between Gaga and Grande was not something that I expected out of 2020, but it makes sense when it is wrapped in a package like this. The music video is filled with splashes of pink and purple, which seems to now be a trademark of “Chromatica.” The music video also has fun dancing that has been copied left and right around TikTok and other forms of social media, confirming Gaga’s claim that this is her reclaiming of a dancefloor.

With great production, a fun beat and two of the greatest figures of pop at the moment, it is simple to see why people all around are calling “Rain On Me” a highlight in pop music for 2020. The success of the song left fans of Lady Gaga as well as fans of pop music with great excitement to see how the rest of “Chromatica” will sound like.

Verdict: “Rain On Me” is a fun dance song that is bound to be a highlight in Gaga’s career. It is a sure way for Gaga to reclaim her dancefloor, and I am definitely looking forward to being able to dance on it.


Pumpkin Spice

Eet dit, nie dit nie!

Unlike the pumpkin spice lattes you love, this drink has actual pumpkin in it. One-third cup of pumpkin provides protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and 16% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C — a nutrient researchers say is directly related to the body's ability to burn through fat. In fact, one study by researchers from Arizona State University showed deficiencies of vitamin C were strongly correlated with increased body fat and waist measurements.

  • ½ frozen banana
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  • ¼ tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop plant-based plain protein powder
