UNITED TALENT AGENCY CANCELS ANNUAL OSCARS PARTY TO PROTEST TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION BAN

On Wednesday, the United Talent Agency announced they canceled their annual Academy Awards party to protest Trump’s travel ban.  Instead, the UTA will donate $250,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union and the International Rescue Committee, as well as host a rally to support immigration.  The rally will take place on February 24th, two days before the Oscars, to “express the creative communities' growing concern with anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States.”  The UTA said the rally will aim to combat the “potential chilling effect on the global exchange of ideas and freedom of expression.”

UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer said in a letter to agency employees: “This is a moment that demands our generosity, awareness, and restlessness.  Our world is a better place for the free exchange of artists, ideas, and creative expression.  If our nation ceases to be the place where artists the world over can come to express themselves freely, then we cease, in my opinion, to be America.”

Trump’s travel ban affected the UTA personally since they represent Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, who is nominated this year in the Best Foreign Language Film category for “The Salesman.”  Farhadi has chosen to boycott the Oscars this year in protest of Trump’s order.  When contacted by the UTA about their decision, he responded with a text saying he was “honored and in tears.”

Election Day, November 8th, is here people!  Americans are flocking to the polls to cast their ballots for the next U.S. President.  Throughout this presidential race, famous singers have taken the stage at various rallies and fundraisers in support of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, including Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Chance the Rapper.  On the final night before Election Day, Hillary got some major help from music legends Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Madonna.

Monday night, Hillary held a last-minute rally at Independence Mall in Philadelphia, for a crowd of around 20,000 people.  Hillary was joined by her husband Bill Clinton, the Obamas, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Bon Jovi.  Bon Jovi performed a live set for the rally crowd, including The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun.”  Bon Jovi then addressed the audience, saying, “I am voting for someone who sees my nieces as future leaders, and not objects to be rated.”

Next up, Springsteen performed his three songs, "Thunder Road," "Dancing in the Dark" and "Long Walk Home."  Springsteen had some choice words for Donald Trump: “This is a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, who has the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interests and ego before American democracy itself.  Somebody who would be willing to damage our long-cherished and admired system rather than look to himself for the reasons behind his own epic failure.  And that's unforgivable. Tomorrow, those ideas and that campaign is going down.”

Springsteen finished with, “Let's all do our part so we can look back on 2016 and say we stood with Hillary Clinton on the right side of history. That's why I'm standing here with you tonight, for the dream of a better America.”

Nothing like a free Springsteen-Bon Jovi concert to spread the word to get out and vote!

Hillary also had some last-minute campaign help from Madonna.  The hugely famous singer took it upon herself to perform a surprise, acoustic concert in New York City’s Washington Square Park Monday night.  She sang, “Express Yourself,” “Like A Prayer,” and John Lennons’ “Imagine.”  After the performance, Madonna implored the audience to vote, saying, “Please come out tomorrow.  Vote with your heart, vote with your mind, vote with your spirit, vote with your soul.  Save this country, please.  Vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton!”

Take it from music legends Madonna, Springsteen, and Bon Jovi – Get out there and vote!

Adele played a concert in Miami, Florida Tuesday night at the American Airlines Arena, where Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance as an early birthday celebration.  Hillary spent all of Tuesday campaigning in south Florida.  Clinton had a packed schedule including, a Coconut Creek rally, her final Florida fundraiser in Pinecrest, and a stop at Univision’s Studios for an appearance on the El Gordo y la Flaca talk show.  Clinton’s supporters did not forget her birthday while she campaigned, though.  At the Coconut Creek rally, the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to Hillary.  On the El Gordo y la Flaca talk show, Hillary was offered cookies and tequila shots.  She was also serenaded by singer Prince Royce, who had backup from a mariachi band.  After her special, but busy day, Hillary had the chance to unwind a little on the eve of her 69th birthday.  Hillary’s motorcade made a final stop at the American Airlines Arena, where Hillary attended Adele’s concert.

It’s no secret that Hillary is a huge fan of Adele.  Hillary said that Adele was her, “go-to voice,” in a SiriusXM interview back in March.  Clinton also added, “I have such a huge admiration for her skills, her abilities and her personality.”

Adele returned the compliment at her Tuesday concert when she confidently endorsed Clinton.  Adele took a break from singing to say, “I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton.  I love her, she’s amazing.”  It has not been confirmed whether or not Adele knew the Democratic nominee was in the audience.  Either way, Adele’s endorsement must have been a lovely birthday present for Hillary.

Adele didn’t stop at her praise of Hillary, though.  The singer took the opportunity to urge concert-goers not to vote for Donald Trump.  Adele said, “I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m really glad I’m not an American at the moment, it’s hard work.”  She continued, “I wouldn’t know what to do, I mean I do know what to do - don't vote for him, that's all I'm saying.” 

Looks like Adele is officially on the #ImWithHer bandwagon!
