Behold: the map which tells you what state your state hates the most. Map porn at its best. A key comment from the more than 6K comments:
At least 80% of the answers I got from Florida were “Florida”
It’s because FL is really 6 different states/cultures welded into one. NW FL is South Alabama, Northeast FL is South Georgia, I4/Theme Park land is Tampa/Orlando, SWFL is lower Midwest, Palm Beach and Broward is Southern New York, and Miami is North Cuba/New Latin America
Of course, the map nails Minnesota and our neighbor to the east, the Badger State. Didn’t know that Wisoconsin hated Illinois more than MN, though. Go figure.
The pop-rap wunderkind opens up to Billboard about life post “OTR”, and being ready to move on without regrets.
Ask Lil Nas X if he feels any pressure following up the record-breaking “Old Town Road,” and you’ll get a simple answer: No. “I’m not worried about anything,” he says over lunch a few days after the VMAs. Sure, “Old Town Road” has created an identity for him, but he’ll create others. “As an artist building myself up, I’m going to have to continue to make other moments,” he says. “But it’s not something that I’m upset about or anything. I mean, maybe when I’m out in public and someone asks for a picture and they’re like, ‘Where is your hat?’ ”

New research seems to bolster the theory that there is really no singular “gay gene”.
The researchers said thousands more genetic variants likely are involved and interact with factors that aren’t inherited, but that none of them cause the behavior nor can predict whether someone will be gay.
The research “provides the clearest glimpse yet into the genetic underpinnings of same-sex sexual behavior,” said co-author Benjamin Neale, a psychiatric geneticist at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
“We also found that it’s effectively impossible to predict an individual’s sexual behavior from their genome. Genetics is less than half of this story for sexual behavior but it’s still a very important contributing factor,” Neale said.
I think we can thank POTUS for this:
For lawmakers and political candidates, 2019 has become the year of not giving a f— about cursing. Profanity — once considered a major no-no among those seeking public office — is now no longer an earth-shattering political snafu. And according to new research, this year is on track to see members of Congress swearing up a storm more than ever before.
I’ve lost all hope of civility in politics….
Somewhat old news, given the rapidity of content in today’s media cycle: the father of kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart, shared in a Facebook message with family and friends Thursday that he is gay.
In “one of the hardest letters I have ever written,” Smart wrote that “I have recently acknowledged to myself and my family that I am gay.”
Smart came into the public eye after his then-14-year-old daughter was abducted from their Federal Heights home in Salt Lake City in 2002. He remained in the spotlight as family spokesman throughout her nine months in captivity, during the trial of her kidnappers and as an advocate for missing children. He said his advocacy work will continue.
He said that he “mostly watched in silence” as LGBTQ people in and out of the Mormon Church faced discrimination, and also said, “not willing to accept the truth about my orientation has at times brought me to the point where I questioned whether life was still worth living.”
He said he was sorry for causing his wife pain over the matter. He maintained that his religion was a huge part of his life, but while his faith remained steadfast, “the Church is not a place where I find solace any longer” as an openly gay man.
Looking forward to the Harriet Tubman biopic later this year; no doubt that 2019 looks to be a competitive year in cinematic competition.
‘OTR’ makes it a three way tie for most number of weeks for a #1 song. Yee haw!
The artist is only 2 weeks away from owning the title of longest running #1 hit in the history of the Billboard Hot 100. His new track, “Panini”, is currently #1 on my countdown, and right now, he can do no wrong.
This week, “Old Town Road” tumbles by 20% in overall Hot 100 metrics and “Bad Guy” increases by 1%. “Road” sports a still-commanding 1.5-to-1 points difference over “Bad Guy,” after leading by 1.9-to-1 last week. … Post Malone’s “Goodbyes,” featuring Young Thug, enters the Hot 100 at No. 3, becoming the former’s seventh top 10 (and fifth to debut in the region) and the latter’s second, following his featured turn on Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” which topped the Jan. 27, 2018, chart. “Goodbyes” begins at No. 2 on both Streaming Songs (40.8 million) and Digital Song Sales (41,000) and at No. 49 on Radio Songs (22.9 million).
As noted above, the chances of this happening appear to be good, as the ratio of aggregate chart points from streaming, radio play, and downloads still keeps the Lil’ Nas X track ahead of the #2 track by Billie Eilish by a healthy 1.5:1 margin.
Meet the new 007. It’s about freakin’ time.
This is just a great story.
The RS Charts have finally debuted.
Historical footnote in the way music was consumed, forty years ago today.
