Adele's Water Under The Bridge Inspires TikTok Trend After She Said She Didn't Want To Make Music For The App
Adele has ended up inadvertently inspiring an unlikely new TikTok dance challenge, after recently saying she had no interest in making music aimed at users of the app.While promoting her new album 30, the record-breaking star spoke to Zane Lowe for Apple Music about how the music industry has changed since her last release, 25.“As we were wrapping up the mixing [of the album] and all of that, the conversation of TikTok came up a lot, right? So I’m like ‘Tik-a-Tok-a-who?’,” she joked.“They were like, we’ve really got to make sure these 14-year-olds know who you are, and I was like, ‘but they’ve all got mums!’. They’ve all got mums and they’ve definitely been growing up listening to my music, these 14-year-olds, and stuff like that.”“If everyone’s making music for TikTok, who’s making the music for my generation? Who’s making music for my peers? I will do that job gladly.” @Adele #30pic.twitter.com/JlQYwVIUOB— Vincent Odundo (@VinceOdundo) November 26, 2021Adele added: “If everyone’s making music for the TikTok, who’s making the music for my generation? Who’s making the music for my peers? I will do that job gladly.“I’d rather cater to people that are on my level in terms of the amount of time we’ve spent on Earth and all the things we’ve been through.”As it turns out, though, Adele has got it in her to start a TikTok trend without even trying.Last week, a tweet went viral mashing up Megan Thee Stallion’s dancing at the American Music Awards with the Adele ballad Water Under The Bridge.https://t.co/OlhGSkg3Lipic.twitter.com/18TbIAjYxi— ★ (@motivatefenty) November 24, 2021Since then, TikTok users have taken it upon themselves to try and recreate the clip – complete with Megan’s exact Body choreography – with completely ridiculous results…@ecreip1Pick me. Choose me. Love me.

Starmer has put Labour rightwingers back in control – are they up to the task?
The Labour leader promised to unite the party, but it seems that factional vendettas have replaced political strategyFor the first time since Labour’s 2019 rout, the government is in serious trouble. After being allowed to get away with their fatal handling of the pandemic, the Tories self-detonated over scandals and broken promises from rail to tax. Enter the Labour deputy leader, Angela Rayner, with a speech – over which her team toiled for weeks – hammering Boris Johnson over corruption and setting out proposals to combat it. You’d imagine any competent, strategic operation around Keir Starmer would gladly throw its weight behind such an endeavour. But his team had other ideas.By launching a shadow cabinet reshuffle without consulting his deputy, Starmer has ignited a new round of internal conflict. Rayner’s operation is adamant that the deputy leader had no adequate forewarning and was not consulted, despite Starmer’s team briefing to the contrary. There is a consistent pattern when it comes to Rayner’s treatment at the hands of the leadership. They scapegoated her for Labour’s catastrophic defeat in Hartlepool earlier this year, sacking her as party chair; criticised her choice of clothing; repeatedly briefed against her, including when she was on bereavement leave; and only belatedly defended her when she was subjected to death threats.

Life of Crime: a shocking film about three decades of addiction and incarceration
The often brutal HBO documentary follows 36 years in the life of a trio in New Jersey in the throes of vicious addictionsIn 1984, the documentarian Jon Alpert began filming three petty criminals on the streets of Newark, New Jersey. With a camera hidden in his clothing, Alpert captured the twenty-somethings’ ingenuity and braggadocio – they mostly targeted retail stores with eager confidence and schemes as brazen as walking out with a box full of goods – as well as the fraying seams of their lives: abusive relationships, arrest warrants, spiraling drug use. Alpert, part of the New York nonprofit Downtown Community Television Center (DCTV), released his first installment on the group, One Year in a Life of Crime, in 1989, after all three had been incarcerated for armed robbery or drug offenses.A followup in 1998, Life of Crime 2, caught up with two of the men, Rob and Freddy, fresh out of prison and struggling to stay clean, along with Rob’s ex-girlfriend Deliris, herself incarcerated and dogged by a heroin addiction that led her in and out of jail and prostitution since she was a teenager. By the mid-2000s, over two decades since Alpert first met Rob and Freddy, the film-maker had given up on the project. Both men had succumbed to their addictions, and Alpert assumed Deliris was gone, too. Then he received a phone call from her, still in Newark and by then sober for years. She told him to meet her, and to bring his camera. Continue reading...

New Life in the Country: Sarah Beeny proves she’s the mum you always wanted
Beeny’s family life is so charming and disarming that this low-key show about building a low-carbon home is surprisingly lovable. Admit it … you love her tooOn the surface, the question of whether you will like Sarah Beeny’s New Life in the Country – the second series of a show about Sarah Beeny’s new life, which is in the country – will depend on whether you like Sarah Beeny, and want her to have a nice life. It feels as if culture has been sharpening like a sword for years up to this point, but I’m going to ask anyway: do you? Do you like Sarah Beeny? And, more importantly, do you want her to thrive in her new life in the country?To figure out whether you like Sarah Beeny it does help to interrogate whether you’ve watched a property show in the last 20 years, because if you have, you probably do. Property TV is a natural fit for a country obsessed with property ownership, and Channel 4 has long since cornered the market, their four horsemen – Conquest (Kevin McCloud), Famine (Beeny), War (Phil Spencer) and Death (Kirstie Allsopp) – leading the march. What is it about owning a property that makes it so soothing to watch other people do things to theirs? Realistically, I’m 20 years and a global banking crisis from finding out for myself, but we live in hope. Continue reading...
