Millie Bobby Brown Performed ‘Girls Like You’ at Maroon 5 Concert: Watch

We already knew Millie Bobby Brown could rap and move, and she just loves Cardi B. On Sunday night, she put it all together on stage at a Maroon 5 concert. Adam Levine introduced the teenage Stranger Things star on stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., where she got her chance to hit a few lines from the Maroon 5 collab with Cardi B., “Girls Like You.” The whole moment was “insane,” Brown later posted on Instagram. Just last week, footage emerged of Brown and her Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp dancing to Cardi B’s “Bartier Cardi” at a party in Los Angeles. Check out her performance at the Maroon 5 show below. 

Australian Broadcasting Corp. Fires Managing Director Michelle Guthrie

Australian Broadcasting Corp managing director Michelle Guthrie has resigned suddenly and will leave the public broadcaster two and half years into her five-year term.  In an announcement Monday morning local time, ABC chairman Justin Milne said Guthrie’s continued leadership “was not in the best interests of the ABC”, following discussions that had lasted several months.  “In resolving to seek fresh leadership, the Board’s foremost consideration was the long-term interests of our own people and the millions of Australians who engage with ABC content every week,” Milne said. “This decision has been driven by our commitment to deliver the best possible outcomes for our loyal audiences and the best possible experience for our own people. We understand that transitions can be disruptive in th...

Bill Cosby Sentencing Reveals Generational Divide Over His Legacy

Keon McGuire has no real attachment to Bill Cosby or his landmark show. As a black man, he’s aware of the sitcom’s place in pop culture, but he was barely in elementary school when The Cosby Show went off the air. Years later, he mostly tuned Cosby out after a widely panned speech to the NAACP in 2004, when the star ranted about black mothers, clothing choices and language. “That for me was kind of an emotional — I won’t say reckoning — but it made me reposition how I felt about Bill Cosby as this figure within the larger representation of black leadership,” said McGuire, a 32-year-old education professor at Arizona State University. McGuire’s mindset reflects a broader generational divide over Cosby, who is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in a Philadelphia courtroom for drugg...

Comcast Outbids Fox in Auction Battle for Sky

Comcast has submitted the higher bid for European pay TV giant Sky in a three-round auction showdown with 21st Century Fox, with an offer worth $22.60 per-share, or £17.28 per share, which values Sky at $38.8 billion, or £29.7 billion. Comcast on Saturday as expected prevailed over Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox, which has Walt Disney as a de facto backer, in the battle for the European pay TV giant Sky following a dramatic one-day auction. Fox/Disney offered a final $20.50, or £15.67 per-share offer. Fox has long owned a 39 percent stake in the company, with both suitors not submitting final Sky bids or dropping out of the acquisition hunt by a Saturday, Sept. 22 deadline, triggering the auction. When the gavel finally fell early evening London time, Comcast had won with its all-...

Bill Cosby Nears Sentencing After Judge Denies Bid to Overturn an Early Ruling

Bill Cosby won’t get a shot at relitigating his criminal case before a different judge and is due to be sentenced next week following his conviction for a 2004 aggravated sexual assault of Andrea Constand. Cosby earlier this month attempted to reset the case to its early stages, asking Judge Steven O’Neill to recuse himself and overturn a key February 2016 ruling in which he found that Cosby’s due process rights weren’t being violated in prosecuting him despite an alleged nonprosecution agreement from then-Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor. Cosby’s attorneys argued that Castor’s testimony wasn’t considered because of a long-standing feud between him and O’Neill.  The court on Wednesday denied Cosby’s motion. O’Neill...
