Part owner of Marvin Gaye song sues Ed Sheeran over ‘Thinking Out Loud’

NEW YORK --- A part owner of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" is suing Ed Sheeran for $100 million (around P5.3 billion) after getting blocked from a similar lawsuit brought by other copyright owners. Both lawsuits say the British songwriter copied parts of the soul classic for his Grammy-winning hit "Thinking Out Loud." A lawyer for Structured Asset Sales said the new lawsuit's Thursday filing was necessary because a judge refused to let the company join a 2016 lawsuit by the family of a co-writer of Gaye's song. That lawsuit, which is still pending in Manhattan federal court, seeks unspecified damages. A lawyer for Sheeran and other defendants said in a letter to the jud...Keep on reading: Part owner of Marvin Gaye song sues Ed Sheeran over ‘Thinking Out Loud’.....»»

Chai Fonacier says her ‘existential crisis’ now over

  Chai Fonacier sings and acts. Sometimes, she writes. She had worked as a radio DJ, as a communications trainer at a call center---"all sorts of stuff." And for a while, she jested, she felt like she was having an "existential crisis." But as more acting projects for film and television started to come, and as her performances started to get recognized, Chai can now say, without second thoughts, that she is an actor. "Back then, when people ask me what I do for a living, I would say that I work for this or that company, and do art on the side. But now I'm grateful that I can finally tell them that this is my profession," Chai told the Inquirer in a recent interview. ...Keep on reading: Chai Fonacier says her ‘existential crisis’ now over.....»»

Barcelona jets in for a day to beat South African champs

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Andres Iniesta returned to the scene of his greatest triumph in his penultimate game for Barcelona as the Spanish champion beat South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 in a friendly in Johannesburg on Wednesday. Iniesta played the first 45 minutes at FNB Stadium, where he scored the goal that won Spain the World Cup in 2010. Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes scored for Barcelona against the South African league winner in a game that formed part of South Africa's celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who died in 2013. Lionel Messi didn't start but drew a roar from the crowd as big as any other on the night when he got up off the bench and started to warm up 20 minutes into the second half. He came on for the last 15 minutes, enough time for him to launch a stinging, long-range shot that goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene struggled to stop. It was a quick turnaround for the Barcelona squad, which arrived in South Africa on the morning of the match and was expected to head home again a couple of hours after the final whistle. Barcelona plays its last game of the Spanish season on Sunday against Real Sociedad, Iniesta's farewell after 22 years at the Catalan club. Dembele, Suarez and Gomes all took advantage of defensive errors, with Dembele curling a left-foot shot into net in the third minute and Suarez doubling the lead in the 18th minute. Gomes added the third in the 66th. Sibusiso Vilakazi scored Sundowns' goal late on but Barca was in cruise control. Barcelona fielded two completely different lineups in each half. Suarez, Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets played the first half. Gerard Pique and Philippe Coutinho were in the 11 for the second half and Messi joined the action near the end. Earlier, Messi and the rest of the squad drew hundreds of South Africans to OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg at 6 a.m. local time to see Barcelona arrive. Runway workers at South Africa's biggest airport temporarily abandoned their jobs to gather near the plane and cheer the team's arrival......»»

Your Moisturizer Is Selling You More than Just Hydration

Beauty is about fantasy. And Brandon Truaxe of Deciem, the company behind The Ordinary, Niod, and Hylamide is ripping that fantasy apart. At least, in an advertising and marketing sense. That's not a bad thing. It's something I wish more beauty brands would do. For Brandon, it started with a series of posts on Instagram featuring garbage dumps with captions that read like company memos. He promised that Deciem will be working towards plastic-free packaging for their brands. He addressed his suppliers by first name, apologizing for the business ties this decision has caused. There is a whole string of "drama" that followed including apologies for not being able to sell a new produc...Keep on reading: Your Moisturizer Is Selling You More than Just Hydration.....»»
