DaBaby Dropped From Lollapalooza Line Up

Following his recent comments...DaBaby has been dropped from the Lollapalooza line up. The rapper was due to headline the American festival tonight - August 1st - but he has been removed from the line up. DaBaby drew controversy following statements onstage at Rolling Loud festival last week, making homophobic comments and supplying disinformation surrounding HIV and AIDs. He said: “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light up.” “Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone light up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone light up.” In the UK, Parklife quietly removed DaBaby from the line up - although some reports suggested this was due to travel and COVID restrictions. Lollapalooza have been unequivocal in their stance, deciding to take DaBaby out of play altogether. A short statement from the festival reads: “Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight.” Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love.

Aretha Franklin’s Handprints to Be Unveiled Outside Detroit Museum

The “Queen of Soul’s” handprints are to be unveiled outside the Detroit Historical Society Museum in advance of the release of a new film on Aretha Franklin’s life and career.

The Sunday (Aug. 1) unveiling on Legends Plaza will coincide with the opening of a new, temporary museum exhibit on Franklin, who died in 2018.

Franklin cast her handprints in concrete for installation on the plaza in 2017 at the Detroit Music Hall’s celebration of the dedication of Aretha Franklin Way in the city, the historical society said.

They last were seen as part of the museum’s commemorative exhibit following Franklin’s death and are being placed on permanent display in conjunction with the upcoming release of Respect, a new film on the life and career of the legendary singer, songwriter and global cultural icon.

Franklin died Aug. 16, 2018 of pancreatic cancer at age 76 in her Detroit home.

Franklin song, including “Think,” ″I Say a Little Prayer” and “Respect,” are considered classics.

The new museum exhibition opens at 1 p.m. Sunday to the public. It will feature costumes from Respect, along with other artifacts.
