An impassioned appeal to a reluctant lover, Arthur's vocals are raw and vulnerable as he pleas: "I'm trying to make it clear / That getting half of you just ain't enough." The 29-year-old penned the song with Swedish pop kingpin Max Martin, who "floated in and out" of the studio, presumably in between making hit records for Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.
In the way of modern music, though, the song was originally intended for pop star Zara Larsson before Arthur came aboard.
In 2016, women made up 5% of cinematographers (also known as directors of photography, or “DPs”) working on the top 250 domestic-grossing films, according to the most recent annual study sponsored by Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film.
Perhaps reflecting greater opportunities for women in the indie sector, the current Spirit Award nominees for cinematography include two women: Elisha Christian for “Columbus” and Helene Louvart for “Beach Rats.”
Another claim of sexual harassment has been aimed at Dustin Hoffman, detailing a “horrific, demoralizing and abusive” experience on the set of a 1983 Broadway show.
In an op-ed for the Hollywood Reporter, Rosseter lays out a number of alleged incidents, which also included Hoffman pulling up her clothing offstage and exposing her body to crew members. The actor Kathryn Rossetter has alleged that the actor groped her repeatedly while they worked together on a production of Death of a Salesman.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday heard oral arguments in a potentially landmark case that pits religious freedom against anti-discrimination laws.
Civil rights attorneys have pointed to that footnote as a possible guide for current justices regarding the gay cake case.
Democrats in Washington have demanded the release of financial data about members of the Trump administration after the publication of the Paradise Papers highlighted that a member of the president’s cabinet had business links with Vladimir Putin’s family.
The new pressure in Washington DC, came on the same day that Jeremy Corbyn, the British leader of the Labour party, used a speech to the UN in Geneva to describe the “grotesque” levels of inequality and mass tax avoidance as one of the biggest problems facing the world, pointing to the Paradise Papers as evidence which showed “the super-rich and powerful can’t be trusted to regulate themselves” .
Fruity, boozy little mouthfuls, mince pies will doubtless make an appearance on every table this holiday season, making spirits bright and then going straight to your hips.
By the mid-17th Century, there appears to have been some connection made to Christmas, although people certainly ate mince pies at other times as well – Samuel Pepys had mince pies at a friend's anniversary party in January of 1661, where there were 18 laid out, one for each year of the marriage.
Former national ski coach Bertrand Charest is set to be sentenced Friday after his previous conviction on various sex-related charges involving teenage girls.
A judge called Charest a sexual predator when he found him guilty last June on charges involving nine of the 12 women who’d accused him of crimes dating back more than 20 years. All but one of the victims and alleged victims were under the age of 18 at the time of the offences, with the youngest being 12.. Crown prosecutor Caroline Lafleur has asked that Charest be given a dissuasive 12-year prison sentence, while defence lawyer Antonio Cabral has countered with a recommendation of between four and six years.
