Jay-Z’s 4:44 Tour Tickets Aren’t Selling As Expected

Reports are coming in that the tour in support of Jay-Z‘s latest album, 4:44, isn’t living up to the critical acclaim of the record with poor ticket sales. With online sellers reportedly letting top-tier tickets go for as low as $ 6, is the reign of Hov as a concert draw nearing an end?

Digital Music News reports:

Jay-Z is accustomed to multi-platinum albums and sold-out shows. But this time around, fans didn’t even know where to find 4:44. And they seem equally uninterested in seeing the rapper live.

As the 4:44 circus train leaves the station, fans are leaking some moribund details. Tickets are largely going unsold, with bargain basement deals surfacing.

That includes a shockingly-low $ 6 seat in Anaheim (see above).

And maybe that’s the first of many. On that same date, $ 11 tickets were plentiful.

The outlet adds that none of the opening dates in many of the large venues are close to selling out and while there might be some last minute buyers to pack out places as the word gets out, this isn’t what was expected when Jay-Z re-upped his deal with Live Nation.

3 Great Date Night Movie Genres That Aren’t Rom-Coms

We live in a fairly busy day & age, and one of the hardest things to do is spend quality time with each other. While it’s easy to turn this into a discussion on social constructs and the absence of communication between individuals, it’s also a time to think of one of the great byproducts of our busy world — “date night” and date night movies. Even if the week has been hectic, we know we can look forward to at least one night to let our hair down & have fun.

12 Beautiful Quotes From Women In Art Who Aren’t Afraid To Call Out Injustice

Today is International Women’s Day, a day globally dedicated to acknowledging the economic, social and political achievements of women across the world. In honor of the occasion, we’re rounding up some of the best interviews we’ve had with women in the arts, all of whom aren’t afraid to tackle the tough issues women face in their daily lives. From education to beauty, success to authenticity, popular perceptions of body hair to the epidemic of catcalling, these female artists don’t veer away from injustice; instead, they face obstacles head on.

Behold, 12 beautiful quotes from women in the arts:

On the importance of education:


” It’s not enough to have a few women’s studies courses. Why is it more important to study Paul Revere’s midnight ride than it is Susan B. Anthony’s 50-year effort to transform the face of America for women? When you’re in school, most of the events you study are about men. Men’s activities lauded and repeated over and over. What about us? What about commemorating the decades-long struggle for suffrage? Why don’t we hear those stories over and over and over again. It’s almost inconceivable for men to understand what it would be like to live without that constant valorization.”

On catcalling:


“There are always those who want to tell women that their experiences are not valid or not important whenever they speak up. For me, as a black woman, this is particularly true. Wanting the basic right of feeling comfortable and safe and not sexualized as I walk out of my house is very much worth prioritizing.” -artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh (read more here)

On success in a contemporary world:

“Success is now lined up with the realm of glamour, money and accoutrement which in essence have nothing to do with an originating vision but they do have to do with establishing recognition in commercial culture. I think women artists have a chance to deflect that and break that grip apart.” -performance artist Carolee Schneemann (read more here)

On finding your authentic self:


“I came of age before women’s lib, and wanted to buck the stereotypes of a culture that branded me a pretty girl, thin enough to be a fashion model and not much more. Armed with my camera and tripod, I found a way to define myself on my own terms in the most authentic way I could.” -photographer Lucy Hilmer (read more here)

On our culture’s preoccupation with female body hair:


“I entered making this work with a sense of fascination that hair is both beautiful and repulsive in our culture. The fragile influence of context is its only distinction. We see long hair on a woman as a symbol of beauty and femininity, but as soon as the hair is cut or removed the body, we think of it as unsanitary and strange. Likewise, we seem to never have enough hair in the places we want it, and too much hair in the places that we don’t want it to be!” -photographer Rebecca Drolen (read more here)

On definitions of beauty:

“The power to show real women, honest, present, complex and complete. Individuals, radiant in their own right. Not stripped of their personhood, or manipulated for a fantasy or metaphor. I like to think the power of lifting the veil from individuals helps to challenge societies darker fetishes and beliefs, perhaps shatter notions of bigotry and stereotypes… One of my greatest joys is working with women who do not usually dwell in this side of their beauty and yet in the work recognize themselves completely, as they are and magnificent.” -painter Victoria Selbach (read more here)

On the realities of trans women:


“[My] series was inspired by my love for the trans women I have met online and my sympathy with the struggles they have being seen as women and people… Trans women are everywhere, but until recently have been marginalized by the invisibility enforced by the intensification of misogynist violence toward them. It is up to cisnormative society to stop questioning their femininity, embrace their beauty, and counter the disadvantages they have just by being themselves.” -artist Janet Bruesselbach (read more here)

On gun control laws:


“My hope is that the young men in the 8th Ward and the surrounding neighborhoods are inspired to trade killing for creativity. Through the relationships they’ve developed they decide they can move past the paradigm of gangsters and guns. Healing in the neighborhood, by the neighborhood.” -artist and curator Kirsha Kaechele (read more here)

On the radical nature of the selfie:


“Yes, of course they have the capability of being radical or feminist. Our generation knows the image of the self better then any other generation before, because of our access to cameras, media and sharing. And also, the language of the image is no longer in the hands of specialists. We are all experts in reading images and we know how to control and manipulate the viewer through images.” – artist Melanie Bonajo (read more here)

On feminism’s potential for future change:


“The Future Feminist point of view has increasingly leaned not towards striving for equal status within a male construct or a male society, but rather to invite a redesign of society based on the principles of a feminine archetype in order to create the hope of a sustainable future for us all.” -The Future Feminists (read more here)

On inclusion in the art world:


“I am aware of the fact that in the bigger scheme of things in the art and literary worlds there are still a lot of gaps as far as diversity and representation goes. That is part of my personal inspiration to make art and tell stories and have more representation for women and people of color.” -comic artist Yumi Sakugawa (read more here)

On hope

George Lopez Says Blacks, Latinos On Late Night Aren’t ‘Able To Fail Like White People Fail’

George Lopez may be known for his comedy, but the actor gets serious in the upcoming inspirational drama “Spare Parts.”

The comedian stopped by HuffPost Live on Wednesday to promote his new film and spoke with host Marc Lamont about Latinos in late night, immigration and more.

On the topic of his 2009 late night show “Lopez Tonight,” which TBS abruptly cancelled after a two-year run, the comedian noted Latinos and Blacks had a more difficult time staying on the air. Lopez specifically mentioned stars like Queen Latifah and Arsenio Hall who he says weren’t given the opportunity to improve on air like their white counterparts.

“I just don’t think that we’re able to fail like white people fail,” Lopez told Lamont. “Our failures are heavier. When you’ll just leave a guy to get good and just leave him on to get good and we just get judged and criticized every day.”

And when it comes to making films and television that reflect diversity like “Spare Parts,” Lopez says it’s just as difficult.

“No matter what level or what degree you’re on in show business it’s still really hard to get movies made. So this movie will help the next movie get done,” Lopez said early on in the segment. “Gina Rodriguez winning a Golden Globe helps the next show that somebody wants to pitch and the fact that in all of that moment of her being overwhelmed she found a couple of seconds to say ‘this is a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes’… [Latinos] don’t want to divide ourselves in the United States or in entertainment, we just want to be included.”

“Spare Parts,” premiering on Friday, tells the true story of four undocumented Hispanic high school students from Phoenix, Arizona who entered a national collegiate robotics contest and managed to beat engineering giants like M.I.T with just $ 800 and no experience. Lopez’s character is a hybrid of the two real-life teachers who helped and supported the students in their endeavor.

While the comedian said there is an overall lack of opportunities for Latinos in Hollywood, in an answer to a viewer question, Lopez also said the movie would help get rid of any stereotypes that Hispanics aren’t intelligent.

“In our culture and in culture sometimes they make you feel a little be weird for being smart… but we are intelligent people and our dreams matter regardless of if you speak with an accent and people think that that makes you not intelligent,” Lopez answered. “Around the world and in Europe, if you speak multiple languages they look at that as a benefit, but in the United States if you speak Spanish, they look at you like you’re not speaking English. We’re woefully behind in a lot of things and one is perception.”

On the topic of immigration, Lopez urged people to vote in order for policies to change and said that, after being part of President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, it was “a little disappointing” that more hadn’t been done for immigrants.

“Immigration has to be reformed and laws have to change but those kids are smart, they deserve a chance,” the comedian said, referencing DREAMers like those portrayed in the film. “This country was built on immigration. And yea I think this movie will raise an incredible dialogue and conversation because one of the kids got deported and then came back and became a citizen and joined the military. We want to live in this country and we want to live happy in this country. Dreams matter and our stories matter and that’s what makes ‘Spare Parts’ really kind of good.”

Take a look at George Lopez’s full interview below.

Brian May And Roger Taylor Aren’t Fans Of Queen’s New Album

Queen released a two-disc compilation last month, which band members Brian May and Roger Taylor weren’t pleased with. “Apart from that it is a rather odd mixture of our slower stuff, I didn’t want the double-album version they’ve put out,” griped Taylor. “It’s an awful lot for people to take in, and it’s bloody miserable. I wouldn’t call it an album either.”
