American-born singer and activist Joséphine Baker became the first American and the first black woman to receive France’s highest honor on Tuesday.

Baker became a French citizen in 1937 after marrying a Frenchman.

Baker was honored in a ceremony outside the Pantheon in France.

The Pantheon is a building that houses the remains of famous French people, including Marie Curie, Victor Hugo and Voltaire.

Baker was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1906. She moved to Paris in 1925 to get away from racism and segregation in the USA.

She was famous around the world as a singer in the 1930s. But she also became known for joining resistance to Nazi Germany in France during World War II.

FILE – In this file photo, dated March 6, 1961, singer Josephine Baker poses in her dressing room at the Strand Theater in New York, United States. The remains of American singer and dancer Joséphine Baker will be reburied at the Pantheon monument in Paris.

She later supported the American civil rights movement in the 1960s. She spoke at the 1963 March on Washington where Martin Luther King gave his “I Have a Dream” speech.

Earlier in 2021, French President Emmanuel Macron decided to honor Baker because she was a “exceptional figureWhich “embodies the French spirit”.

Baker’s remains will remain in Monaco where she lived at the end of her life. However, a funeral container containing soil from the United States, France and Monaco will be placed in the Pantheon.

Baker was honored Monday in a ceremony at the place where she is buried in Monaco.

Rosemary Phillips is an interpreter and co-owner of Parc Baker created in the southwest of France. She said Baker was a “superstar” and the “Rihanna of the 1920s”. Rihanna is one of the most famous singers today.

Pap Ndiaye is a French scholar who studies minority rights movements in the United States. He said: “the mere fact that a black woman enters the pantheon is historic”.

Baker was famous for dancing in short skirts and was popular in Parisian theaters. But Ndiaye said people disagreed about his performance. He said that when she sang in Paris, France had colonies in Africa.

Baker was one of the many famous black Americans who lived in France during the years following the World Wars. Ndiaye said they had “a better life overall” than if they had stayed in the United States. French racism, he said, was “more subtle. “

Singer Katy Perry tried to ‘choke’ Katie Perry’s fashion business in trademark battle, court said https://tinamania.com/singer-katy-perry-tried-to-choke-katie-perrys-fashion-business-in-trademark-battle-court-said/ Mon, 29 Nov 2021 02:09:47 +0000 https://tinamania.com/singer-katy-perry-tried-to-choke-katie-perrys-fashion-business-in-trademark-battle-court-said/ American singer Katy Perry tried to “stifle” the fledgling business of an Australian fashion designer by using her “financial might” in a brewing brand battle, a Sydney court has heard.

American singer Katy Perry tried to “stifle” the fledgling business of an Australian fashion designer by using her “financial might” in a brewing brand battle, a Sydney court has heard.

Katie Jane Taylor has been selling clothes under her maiden name, Katie Perry, since November 2006 and registered a trademark in September 2008.

In a case heard in Federal Court, she alleges that the singer has infringed her trademark since at least 2013 by selling products bearing a trademark “substantially identical or falsely similar to” her own.

The singer, real name Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, then filed a cross-application to have Ms Taylor’s trademark canceled.

Hudson adopted the stage name Katy Perry, a combination of her own first name and her mother’s maiden name, in 2004.

Attorney Christian Dimitriadis SC, for Ms Taylor, told the court today that the designer started her business “long before” she knew the singer, which meant she was the rightful owner of the brand.

He described Perry’s “blatant” violation of Ms Taylor’s rights and explained how she resisted “heavy threats” in 2009.

“Ms. Hudson and her advisers attempted to use their greater sophistication and financial might to stifle Ms. Taylor’s fledgling business,” he told the court.

But Ms Taylor “stood up for her rights,” Dimitriadis said.

She first discovered the singer in July 2008 when she heard the song I Kissed A Girl on the radio, heard the court, but had already started selling her products in Sydney markets.

The year before, she registered her business name and a domain name.

Letters from Perry’s attorneys in 2009 were “a major shock” to the creator.

The court heard Ms Taylor made the legal battle public that year, triggering an email from Perry’s manager stating that it had been “exaggerated.”

Mr Dimitriadis said Perry was not only a famous musician, but a “shrewd businessman who actively exercises control over his business empire”.

She sold Katy Perry branded clothing and related products during her Australian concerts in 2014 and 2018, as well as lines that appeared in Target and Myer.

Mr Dimitriadis referred to a 2009 email Perry sent to her manager telling him that she “wanted a message released” and “not to sweeten it or apologize”, also referring to to Ms. Taylor in “what we were submitting was clearly a very derogatory manner.”

In defense documents, Perry’s legal team denies infringing on the maker’s mark because she used her own name in good faith.

The singer has had “significant prior media publicity in Australia” from June 2008, according to the documents.

Matthew Darke SC, for Perry, told the court that the singer was using her name for entertainment purposes in Australia from November 2007.

It was a “completely natural and orthodox transition” for pop stars to start selling designer clothes, he said, which Perry started doing with an online store in September 2008.

This store was put into operation before Ms Taylor applied for registration of her trademark, Mr Darke said, by which time the singer had a “very solid reputation, including in Australia”.

He also dismissed claims of “heavy lifting” but said that to the extent that such conduct had occurred, it took place before Perry appreciated the nature of Ms Taylor’s business.

The cross-claim was purely defensive as the circumstances meant there was “no choice” but to seek the removal of the Katie Perry trademark, Mr Darke said.

Ms Taylor, whose case is funded by litigation funder LCM, is expected to testify tomorrow.

While Perry is unlikely to make an appearance, his manager Steven Jensen will be a witness.

Adele’s “30” Becomes Best Selling Album of 2021 in US and UK https://tinamania.com/adeles-30-becomes-best-selling-album-of-2021-in-us-and-uk/ Sat, 27 Nov 2021 11:31:00 +0000 https://tinamania.com/adeles-30-becomes-best-selling-album-of-2021-in-us-and-uk/ Released on November 19, the British singer’s fourth studio album also became the most successful album of the year in the United States just three days after its release, according to MRC data reported by Billboard.

Released on November 19, the British singer’s fourth studio album also became the most successful album of the year in the United States just three days after its release, according to MRC data reported by Billboard.

Selling over 660,000 equivalent album units – which includes streaming audio and video and sales of individual tracks – “30” has already triumphed over the other major releases of 2021.

In the UK, Adele debuted at # 1 on the albums chart, with first week sales of 261,000 according to the Official maps, who said it was the most important first week for an album since Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” (÷) in 2017.
The debut single from the album “Easy on Me” also won a sixth straight week at number one on the UK singles charts, having broken the record for most streams in just one week after its release.
The official cards stated that Adele was the single female act with three or more studio albums to reach number one with all her records – a title she has now cemented further with “30”, which marks her fourth number one.

However, “30” didn’t quite reach the heights of Adele’s third studio album, “25”, which went on to become the best-selling album of all time in the US and UK in 2015 – selling 800,000 copies in the UK and 3.3 million in the US.

While this week’s album chart has yet to be released in the US, it’s almost guaranteed that Adele will claim her third consecutive number one album, and “Easy on Me” has already spent four weeks at the premiere. place in the top 100 singles. .

The sales figures reflect Adele’s love for conventional methods of listening to music, with 560,000 equivalent album units sold in the United States being traditional album sales, while 67% of her sales in the UK were physical sales.

The singer has streaming avoided in the past, although it seems to have now embraced it at the risk of reducing physical sales – even causing Spotify to remove the shuffle button as the default option for albums on their platform.
“30” was widely acclaimed by critics, and Adele said American Vogue in October that the album was her way of explaining her divorce to her son and was close to her heart, claiming that she was “not letting go of this one”.

“The Voice” contestant Wendy Moten shockingly faces off on stage: “You scared us! “ https://tinamania.com/the-voice-contestant-wendy-moten-shockingly-faces-off-on-stage-you-scared-us/ Wed, 24 Nov 2021 03:51:12 +0000 https://tinamania.com/the-voice-contestant-wendy-moten-shockingly-faces-off-on-stage-you-scared-us/ Blake Shelton had a great night on Tuesday The voice Top 11 live results, with all three of her team reaching the top 10.

Blake Shelton had a great night on Tuesday The voice Top 11 live results, with all three of her team reaching the top 10. On Monday, I had feared that powerful Team Blake diva, veteran professional background singer Wendy Moten, not be careful, since she sang in “the point of death” first and has even been lightly criticized for being “too perfect”. But on Tuesday, I feared for Wendy’s literal safety, when a very imperfect moment happened and she suffered a frightening fall on stage.

Wendy had just finished her spectacular group performance of Four Tops’ “Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)”, alongside her trainer and teammates Paris Winnginham and Lana Scott, when she appeared to stumble over a group monitor; Paris, Lana and a pair of stagehands rushed to his side, while Blake, whose back was turned during the incident as he walked over to his red chair, quickly returned to the stage to check on Wendy. Host Carson Daly appeared genuinely shaken by the incident, as he put the show on hold and a moment of tense and uncertain silence ensued.

A frightening moment as contestant Wendy Moten falls during the live broadcast of the first 11 results of season 21 of “The Voice”. (Photo: NBC)

” Everyone is well ? Take a second. Someone just fell. We are fine ? Just give us a second, everyone, to make sure it’s all right, ”Carson explained, as he watched Blake and his team help Wendy, who looked stunned and in pain. “We are cleaning up the stage. We have people coming to help now. An unfortunate event for Wendy Moten. She leaves. We hope she’s doing well … “

While viewers waited for an update on Wendy, they or they used social media to express concern. Thankfully, Wendy, an accomplished pro with a classic must-see demeanor, quickly returned to assure Carson and the fans at home that she wasn’t seriously injured. “You scared us with this mishap on stage! We’ve never had anything like this, ”Carson told Wendy, to whom she responded with a brave smile,“ I’m fine. I’m a little bruised, but you know what? I am always ready to go!

With this crisis now averted, it was time for the case at hand, as Team Ariana’s father / son duo, Team Kelly’s soul belter Jim & Sasha Allen and Gymani, landed in the last two and made had to sing for Instant Save. Gymani suffered what John Legend called a minor “stumble” – a figurative, not literal, stumble, in this case – at the start of her “Tell Me Something Good” performance, but she eventually got it right, and it did. was fun and a great number.

The Allen’s pick, Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up” was an appropriate save me song for the occasion, but again their harmonies fell flat, and again I thought Sasha, the much stronger singer of the duo, should have just auditioned for The voice as a solo candidate.

However, seeing Jim supporting his trans son has been heartwarming all season, and very important to the general public in America, so I couldn’t help but get a little choked – just like their proud trainer Ariana Grande did. did – when Sasha proclaimed, “Trans rights! at the end of their Mraz tune. And as a result, I couldn’t get too much shocked when mainstream America voted Jim and Sasha in the top 10 next Monday on Gymani.

See you then, when the Allen, Wendy and the other eight semi-finalists go head to head.

Her first professional single was called The Right Girl and was released by ABC-Paramount in 1958.

Throughout the 1960s, King rose to prominence and began writing songs for artists such as Aretha Franklin, The Drifters, and Dusty Springfield.

King went on to work with legends such as James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, and Mary J. Blige.

Her version of the song, Where You Lead (I Will Follow), is billed as the theme song for the hit television series Gilmore Girls.

She has also been actively involved in environmental issues since the 1970s, working with groups like the Alliance for the Wild Rockies and testifying on Capitol Hill.

What did Taylor Swift say about Carole?

Country turned pop sensation Taylor Swift, 31, inducted King into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in October 2021.

During her introduction, Swift spoke about the music legend and revealed that her parents are huge fans.

“I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know Carole King’s music,” Swift said.

“I was raised by two of his biggest fans, who taught me the basic truths of life as they saw it: that you have to treat people the way you want to be treated, that you have to believe that you can achieve anything you want in life, and that Carole King is the greatest songwriter of all time.

She then revealed that she might not have been here without King’s music.

“There have been times when a fan’s dedication to the artist he loves can complicate things in his personal life,” she continued.

“My dad once told me a story when he was in college and a girl he was just starting to date flirtatiously asked him if there were any songs that reminded him of her.

He immediately responded with his absolute favorite song, which was “It’s Too Late” by Carole King – ignoring the fact that the lyrics include lines like “Something Inside Is Dead And I Just Can’t hide myself and I just can’t pretend this. ‘ Surprisingly, the relationship didn’t work out. But if it was, I wouldn’t be here tonight.

6. Remember that it is useless to play the coolies in front of people you admire.

7. Laugh out loud …

8. … laugh often …

9. … laugh wherever you are …

10. … and don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself either

11. There is always time for a quick chat

13. And know your worth

14. There is nothing wrong with letting people have it once in a while …

15. … as long as you also recognize your own mistakes

16. Honesty is always the best policy …

17. … well, most of the time, at least

18. If you are given the opportunity to dress, take it …

19. … Including when it means dressing up as someone else

The Brooklyn native was a longtime member of The Tokens, an American doo-wop style vocal group.

The group is famous for their hit single The Lion Sleeps Tonight, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961.

At the time of the single’s release, Margo and the rest of the band didn’t really trust the record.

“We were embarrassed by this and tried to convince Hugo [Peretti] and Luigi [Creatore] not to publish it, “he said in an interview quoted in The Billboard Book of Number 1 Hits by Fred Bronson

“They said it would be a big record, and he was going out.”

After its release and with the help of lyricist George Weiss, who added the English lyrics that begin “Into the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle,” the song remained number one for three weeks and became a cultural touchstone.

It skyrocketed to popularity in 1994 after Disney featured the single in their movie The Lion King.

“Now that it’s relevant, we are relevant. I’m delighted,” Margo said at the time.

The Tokens also released the popular singles I Hear Trumpets Blow and Tonight I Fell in Love.

Margo is survived by his wife, Abbie S Margo, whom he married in 1966, his sons Noah and Joshua, his daughter Neely S Irwin, his sister Maxine Rubin and eight grandchildren.

Margo’s brother and bandmate Mitch died in 2017.
