Jaden Smith steps up a level

You'd be forgiven for never taking Jaden Smith seriously. He hops around from medium to medium, never truly giving us a fully-realised vision. But perhaps that's about to change? 'Icon' is an understated, yet beautiful video, with the track itself being his most polished to date. Throw in some Kanye clothing and some awesome dance moves, and you have yourself a pretty strong reason to think he might be onto something.


Apple's HomePod delayed until 2018

Apple have released a statement regarding their much-hyped HomePod smart speaker: In a statement, Apple said that "We can't wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple's breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it's ready for our customers. We'll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018." Damn.


Morrissey is a prick

We're gonna go ahead and say it: Morrissey is Trump. Giant ego? Check. Racist yet denies he's racist? Check. Out of touch with reality? Check. Attention seeker? Check. His latest blunder was revealed during an interview with Spiegel Online:

"As far as I know, he was in a bedroom with a 14-year-old. Kevin Spacey was 26 and boy 14 was wondering where the boy’s parents were. One wonders if the boy did not know what could happen. I do not know about you, but I’ve never been in situations like this in my youth. Never. I always knew what could happen. When you are in somebody’s bedroom, you have to be aware of where that can lead to. That’s why it does not sound very credible to me. It seems to me Spacey has been unnecessarily attacked.

"People know exactly what happens. And they play along. Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it. And then they turn it around and say: I was attacked, I was surprised, I was dragged into the room. But if everything had gone well and had it given them a great career, they would not talk about it. I hate rape. I hate attacks. I hate sexual situations that are forced on someone. But in many cases, one looks at the circumstances and thinks that the person referred to as a victim is merely disappointed. Throughout the history of music and rock ‘n’ roll there have been musicians who have slept with their groupies. If you go through history, almost everyone is guilty of sleeping with minors.”

Great work on the victim blaming, dickhead.
