Blackfishing: The women accused of pretending to be black
Newsbeat speaks to two influencers accused of blackfishing and looks at why its so controversial.
Журнал Forbes представил ежегодный список самых высокооплачиваемых музыкантов мира. Рейтинг был опубликован на сайте журнала . На первом месте оказалась ирландская группа U2. Музыкальный коллектив заработал в этом году $ 316 млн благодаря мировому турне Joshua Tree, который был посвящен тридцатилетию одноименного альбома. "У меня никогда не было шаблонного взгляда, что коммерция и культура — разные вещи. Помню, Бьорк (исландская певица, композитор и музыкант. — Ред.) сказала мне, что ее песни — как столярное дело: один из ее друзей в Исландии делает стулья. Эти стулья красивее или полезнее песен? Что ж, это зависит от стула или от песни", — сказал Боно (Пол Дэвид Хьюстон, вокалист U2). На второй строчке разместилась группа Coldplay. Британские музыканты в текущем году заработали $115 млн. В общей сложности их двухлетний тур A Head Full Of Dreams, охвативший пять континентов, принес группе приблизительно полмиллиарда долларов. Замыкает тройку лидеров еще один британец — 27-летний Эд Ширан, заработавший $110 млн. В топ-10 также вошли Бруно Марс ($100), Кэтти Перри ($83), Тейлор Свифт ($80), Jay-Z ($76,5), Guns N'Roses ($71), Роджер Уотерс ($68), Diddy ($64). В целом, десятка самых высокооплачиваемых исполнителей заработала в текущем году $886 млн — приблизительно такую же сумму получили 10 лидеров прошлогоднего рейтинга. Однако состав топ-10 поменялся. В частности, первые позиции в списке 2017 года занимали Diddy ($110), Бейонсе ($105) и Drake ($94).

2018 WAFCA Winners
2018 WAFCA Winners

As a film critic of medium-low importance, one of my most sacred duties is participating in the Washington Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) year-end awards extravaganza. During this hallowed time of year, I watch dozens of movies and mine my own recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly to determine what, precisely, the best films of the year were. At the end of this grueling process—this death march through endless stacks of DVDs, searching for the rarest pearl in an ever-increasing sea of muck—we WAFCA members nominate up to five films/people in each category. The five films/people who earn the most votes in every category are then voted upon by the whole of the membership, the winners are chosen, the press release is sent out, and blessed, blessed relief descends upon us as we put the exercise to rest for 11 months.
