Piers Morgan Is No Doubt Loving The Fact Comedian Munya Chawawa Has Named His Debut Single After Him
Internet comedian Munya Chawawa has unveiled his debut single, and it’s one we think could well capture the attention of a certain controversial daytime host.The name of the track? Piers Morgan.After signing a deal with Atlantic Records, Munya debuted his first single on Friday, under the guise of one of his comedy characters, Unknown P, “the UK’s first ‘posh’ drill rapper”.While the song’s music video features a set very reminiscent of the Good Morning Britain studio, Munya (or should that be Unknown P) is heard rapping: “Sipping on tea, pass me a bourbon, had to run a man down in my wellies, now I’m telly, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid I’m adorin’.” We can only imagine how thrilled the man himself is to make it into a rap song –  even if it is one recorded by a comedy character.A press release for Piers Morgan (the song, not the man, obviously), explains: “Written over a booming drill beat, the track itself documents a day in the life of Unknown P and nods to his daily consumption of morning television and the divisive figure that is Piers Morgan.”Announcing the track earlier this week, Munya joked on Twitter: “@PiersMorgan, I suggest you start writing your reply now.” It's coming, marndem! The debut single from Unknown P - 'Piers Morgan'.

Are you ready to watch the undead dance? ENB goes fantastical with film
Available onlineDirectors from the worlds of pop and adverts have made five films for English National Ballet’s new digital season. From boxing women to glorious goths, you won’t know what’s coming nextA Cuban sugar plum fairy, the undead, a Russian war epic, two women staring each other down in a boxing ring – you never know what’s coming next in English National Ballet’s digital season. The five latest films, wide-ranging in style and concept, average 15 minutes each, making them notably more substantial than most video shorts in the Covid era. It’s an attempt at meaningful choreography as well as visual flair. They will be performed on stage at some point, but for now the films are being released one per week.Shot in ENB’s own studio, the works are more filmed dances than dance films but there’s still imaginative use of the space from the directors, who mostly come from commercials and pop videos. The most straightforward is the first, Stina Quagebeur’s Take Five Blues. With warmth and fun, the dancers bounce off violinist Nigel Kennedy’s unconventional recordings of Take Five and Bach’s double concerto. The combination of classical and jazz is reflected in the choreography’s uncomplicatedly attractive angles; it has the mood of improvisation and the precision of a technique class. There’s energy in Shaun James Grant’s direction but it always remains respectful of the choreography. Continue reading...
