• Marilyn Manson: Columbine massacre 'destroyed' my career

    The singer now says "If [the Columbine killers] had just bought my records, they would be better off. Certain people blame me for the shootings at schools." "That's going to be a great pull-quote for you," he told The Guardian. "But, honestly, the Columbine era destroyed my entire career at the time." Manson is currently promoting his new album titled "Heaven Upside Down." In 2012, he said the title for his "Born Villain" was influenced by having been been wrongfully vilified because of Columbine. "When it comes to things like Columbine, it would have been different if they [Harris and Klebold] had actually liked my music, but I think that I have had more blame accredited to me than any person

  • The famed painters who vanished into obscurity

    Two exhibitions open this month devoted to a group of working class artists from the East End of London who became art world celebrities in the late 1920s and 1930s - only to be forgotten after World War Two. They were known as the East London Group, and among their ranks were humble office clerks, a navvy, a window cleaner, a shop assistant, a printer, a basket-weaver and an errand boy. Now they're being rediscovered, with one exhibition devoted to their work in Southampton, and another, curated by the children's author Michael Rosen and radio producer Emma-Louise Williams, on their home turf of Bow in East London. Though they had no formal art school training, the paintings they produced were

  • The enduring appeal of Audrey Hepburn

    More than 50 years after her iconic turn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey Hepburn's style is attracting the attention of a new generation of fashion lovers. A collection of the actress's little black dresses, trench coats and a sleeping mask are among thousands of personal items on display at Christie's in central London. Almost 500 lots are to be sold in the coming weeks, but it was not only potential buyers browsing the auction house as the exhibition opened on Saturday. A younger generation - many born after Hepburn's death nearly 25 years ago - are turning out to see the clothes worn by the 20th Century muse. Adrian Hume-Sayer, director of private collections at Christie's,

  • Trump says this is all a hoax. Mueller, Congress and Facebook disagree.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller and three congressional committees are investigating Russian interference in the election, but President Trump is still telling his fans it's a "hoax." Trump used the "Russia hoax" label on Friday for the first time in six weeks. He said in a tweet that scrutiny over Facebook ads from Russian-linked accounts was just part of the continuing "hoax." Then the president asked: "What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary?" Trump was echoing conservative commentators who say he won the election in spite of grossly unfair media coverage. The timing is curious. Hillary Clinton has been on a highly successful book tour for the

  • You can now binge-watch 'Will & Grace'

    (CNN)For the first time "Will & Grace" fans can binge-watch the complete eight seasons of the hit show.

  • Stevie Wonder takes both knees 'for America'

    Trump criticized some in the NFL on Friday night at a rally in Alabama, saying team owners should fire players for taking a knee during the national anthem. His remarks appeared to refer to Colin Kaepernick -- formerly with the San Francisco 49ers, but currently without a team -- who last year drew national attention for refusing to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" prior to kickoff. "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said last year. Trump is responding a year later, saying if fans would "leave the stadium" when players kneel in protest during the national anthem, "I guarantee, things will stop."
