It may not stop Journey from continuing to tour – and what a freezing green room it can be – but Journey’s two remaining original members, guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain, face off in court at the public opinion as well as in real court, both airing their contentious sides of a lawsuit Schon filed against Cain.

Cain released a statement Tuesday afternoon in response to the lawsuit Schon filed on Oct. 31, as well as public statements the guitarist made on Monday. Schon argues in court and out of court that he was denied access to the group’s American Express card and its records. Meanwhile, Cain’s attorney says Schon’s access to the company’s account was to be blocked after he allegedly put more than $1 million in “inappropriate personal expenses” on the card.

“This is a matter that should have been answered privately,” Cain said Tuesday, “but I am compelled to respond publicly now to Neal’s malicious lies and personal attacks on my family and (me) for the purpose of gaining public support for his disease – a contrived lawsuit – a lawsuit that has absolutely no merit.

Cain continued, “Neal has always had access to credit card statements; what he’s missing — and what he’s really looking for — is the ability to increase his spending limits. Since Neal has decided to go public with what is going on, I can tell you that we will be presenting the evidence in court that shows that Neal has been under tremendous financial pressure due to his overspending and extravagant lifestyle, which led to him racking up huge personal charges on the band’s credit card account.

“When efforts were made to limit his use of the card to legitimate group expenses, Neal unfortunately decided to attack me rather than try to rein in his reckless spending,” Cain’s statement concludes. “I am saddened by the situation – for Neal and for our fans – but since Neal has taken legal action, I suspect he will not be able to ignore the court as he has ignored the countless financial advisers and accountants he laid off in recent years. years who have tried in vain to help him.

Schon’s lawsuit was filed at Contra Costa in the California Bay Area and claims Cain failed to turn over financial records that would show the guitarist how much the band owes him. Among the allegations in the lawsuit, Shon’s attorneys claim that he “attempted to avoid legal action, repeatedly requesting that Cain grant him access to the AMEX account. For many months, Cain and his representatives represented that Schon would be granted access. But each time Schon contacted AMEX, AMEX informed him that he was still not authorized to access AMEX account records.

Cain’s claim is that Schon already has access to American Express card records, but is really looking to increase his spending limit.

On his social media on Monday, Schon wrote: “The only comment I will make at this time is that everything is very unhappy and (I) have been trying for over a year to achieve all of our corporate records for Nomota with many personal emails to Jon as well as many legal letters saying it’s my legal right to see everything, but I had no choice but to take it legal…. There’s a lot more… Since I filed my case, I will take my lawyer’s advice and I won’t talk until we get to court where I won’t have any problems. That’s how it is.” (Nomota is a company the two founding members started in 1998, after singer Steve Perry left the band in 1997, establishing 50/50 ownership.)

This wasn’t the first time Schon has spoken publicly about his lawsuit … and in an earlier case, gang women were implicated or invoked. In a social media account Schon shares with his wife, he referred to Cain’s wife, evangelist Paula White, saying she became part of the group’s banking interests as they ‘went behind’ their backs. of Schon.

“Thank you American Express and the bank for telling Neal Schön the truth about Jonathan Cain and Paula White getting behind Neal’s back. Adding Paula White to Journey Corporate Banking in 2020 is unethical and Illegal for Neal, he said never do it, they did it anyway Good for honest bank rep.

Cain’s attorney, Alan Gutman of Gutman Law, released his own statement Tuesday, saying, “Evidence will establish that Schon’s financial crisis has nothing to do with his alleged ‘unfettered access to Nomota records.’ Our investigation established that Schon’s personal financial problems resulted solely from his reckless spending, including what at first glance appears to charge over $1 million in improper personal expenses to the group’s Nomota AMEX corporate card. Schon’s complaint is the classic example of desperate people doing desperate things. It is very unfortunate that Neal – and Neal alone – has created such hardship for himself and his family through his outrageous spending.

The motion to dismiss filed by Gutman Law asks that Miller Barondess, LLP be disqualified as Schon’s attorney, because the firm previously represented Cain and Schon together in 2020 “in a substantially related matter.” Accordingly, it is alleged that confidential information has been disclosed to Miller Barondess, LLP, and disqualification is mandatory. …Cain would not have disclosed any confidential information regarding his business activities, attitude, litigation philosophy and strategies, if he had known that Miller Barondess would use such confidential information in a lawsuit against him.

It’s the biggest direct outburst between Cain and Schon since 1997, when Schon went public on social media with complaints that Cain, vocalist Arnel Pineda and Ross Valory, who was the band’s bassist at the time, had participated in a photo session at the White House with Donald Trump. . (Cain’s wife, Paula White, acted as spiritual advisor to the then-president and delivered the invocation at his inauguration.)

But there have been other problems in the meantime. In 2020 and 2021, the band’s drummer and bassist parted ways with the band after a dispute over trademark claims and lawsuits ended in settlement.

Meanwhile, Journey is set to hit the road again, splits and all, starting January 27. The tour will continue until a date at the new Acrisure Arena in the Palm Springs area on April 25.

Seven years ago, Salvador Salado-Herrera, a high school student at the time, spotted a vintage University of North Carolina hockey jersey at a thrift store. He wasn’t a huge hockey fan, but he bought it because he liked the style and the price — $4 — suited his modest budget.

After returning home, Salvador realized that his new shirt was too big. On a whim, he offered it for sale on Depop, a peer-to-peer social media platform popular among vintage clothing sellers and buyers.

“It sold out immediately, which piqued my curiosity,” he recalls. “I was 17 at the time. Sixty dollars was a lot of money. It was like, ‘Wow, there’s a market for this old sports stuff.’ I talked about it with my brothers and they were on board.

CMA nominee Ashley McBryde exceeds standards en route to stardom https://alabamabluegrass.org/cma-nominee-ashley-mcbryde-exceeds-standards-en-route-to-stardom/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 21:43:42 +0000 https://alabamabluegrass.org/cma-nominee-ashley-mcbryde-exceeds-standards-en-route-to-stardom/ NASHVILLE— If things ever go wrong in her country singing career, Ashley McBryde has a solid backup plan in place: a reality series starring her and Martina McBride, the veteran country star so often mistaken for a parent that McBryde has a website – isashleymcbryderelatedtomartinamcbride. com – whose sole purpose is to serve Merriam-Webster’s definition […]]]>

If things ever go wrong in her country singing career, Ashley McBryde has a solid backup plan in place: a reality series starring her and Martina McBride, the veteran country star so often mistaken for a parent that McBryde has a website – isashleymcbryderelatedtomartinamcbride. com – whose sole purpose is to serve Merriam-Webster’s definition of “no”.

The show would be called “McBridesmaids”, its premise simple but full of potential. “We’d just go around and crush people’s weddings,” McBryde says with a chesty laugh. “Then at the end of each episode, we would both join the alliance and jam.”

You can already imagine the high jinks. Alas, given McBryde’s role, it’s unlikely “McBridesmaids” will reach Bravo anytime soon. One of Nashville’s most emotionally incisive songwriters — with a voice that can channel pain as vividly as challenge — McBryde, 39, performed this fall as a special guest on the Judds’ tour commemorating the life of Naomi Judd, who died in April. McBryde’s acclaimed new album, “Lindeville,” is set to earn a Grammy nomination or two. And she’s up for five awards at Wednesday night’s Country Music Assn. Awards including Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year with “Never Wanted to Be That Girl”, her chart-topping duet with Carly Pearce.

Add to that the invitation she received last month — from Garth Brooks, no less — to join the venerable Grand Ole Opry, “which are words I’ve literally worked my whole life to hear,” says McBryde, who grew up in rural Arkansas. and made his bones playing bars in Memphis before moving to the country music capital in 2006. “People were texting me asking how I was going to celebrate. I was like, ‘I’m getting on a plane to go sing with Wynonna Judd.’ She laughs again. “How is this real life?”

Said Judd, who picked McBryde (along with Brandi Carlile, Trisha Yearwood and the other McBridesmaid) to hit the road in honor of her late mother and bandmate: “I just think she’s a bada—. If I hadn’t come with my mom, I probably would have been just as rambunctious and had as many tattoos as Ashley. Judd remembers telling McBryde, after a few tour dates together, that she wanted them to do her song “Rock Bottom”.

“She didn’t know the verse, so I said, ‘Well, you better get back on your bus and learn it if you’re going to work with me, Miss Sassy Britches,’ Judd said. “The next night , she came out on stage and took over my song like she was stealing my food.”

McBryde admits all the action was exhausting. “We started glam [hair and makeup] at 4:30 this morning,” she says over a late afternoon beer, curled up on a couch in her manager’s office in Nashville. She’s already done a TV spot and a photo shoot today, and tonight she’ll be performing at the Opry before catching an early flight to do a corporate gig for Southwest Airlines. “But again, that’s what I worked for.” She takes a sip. “The wear of rhythms will rust.”

For many country stars in McBryde’s position, this would be a time to cement their success in a slow industry that values ​​consistency and reliability. Yet with “Lindeville,” her third LP on a major label, the singer takes an unexpected left turn: titled as a nod to Dennis Linde, the Nashville songwriter known for songs like “Goodbye Earl ” of the Chicks and “John Deere Green” by Joe Diffie. “, “Lindeville” is an original concept album full of interconnected songs about small-town residents – people like Brenda, who happily watches a neighbor come home to find her baby daddy in bed with the babysitter. , and Patti, a stripper who pops “a rod to get through her shift and a diaper so she can lie down with the kids.”

The music draws inspiration from folk and bluegrass and West Coast country-rock, and McBryde doesn’t even sing lead on most tracks; instead, she hands the mic to friends such as Brothers Osborne’s Brandy Clark and TJ Osborne, the latest of which delivers a killer ballad about an aging vet who “lost his wife to cancer and a thumbs up.” Vietnam / Jokes that he used to be a hitchhiker but not for very long Between some songs, fake radio jingles for imaginary Lindeville businesses – Dandelion Diner, for example, where “it’s high time for pie time” – give the whole thing a sort of “Prairie Home Companion” vibe.

John Osborne of the Osborne Brothers, who produced the LP, says “Lindeville” feels “like a sixth or seventh album by an established artist who wants to pursue something risky and creative”. The fact that McBryde wanted to make a record like this relatively early “just tells you how fearless she is,” Osborne says, though it also reflects the unique circumstances brought about by COVID-19: forced off the road for most of 2020, McBryde and Clark locked themselves away with several other songwriters in a cubicle in October of that year and spent a week writing in “full freedom”, as McBryde puts it, not caring radio or how the songs could fit on a set list alongside older McBryde hits like “One Night Standards” and “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega.”

“We weren’t worried about what it was for,” she says of the music. “We just had to love him.”

Beyond his debt to Linde, the result showcases a songwriting artistry – and a sense of empathy – clearly influenced by John Prine, whom McBryde became close to before his death in 2020.” Ashley sees everything,” says John Osborne. “She knows the human condition so well.” And yet, you can see the complex character studies on “Lindeville” as a very private way for one woman to divert fan interest from her personal life. McBryde generally avoids talking about relationships and her family, which she says she does “in the interest of protecting my loved ones. I’m not the biggest star there ever was, but they’re bothered. And it’s not something they signed up for.

Which isn’t to say that McBryde’s music lacks specific emotional scars, far from it. One of the highlights of “Lindeville” is “Gospel Night at the Strip Club,” a sparse acoustic number that alternates detailed verses about various club regulars with a moving chorus that says “Jesus loves drunks, whores and queers”. In interviews, McBryde has stated that she knew the lyrics would get her into trouble. When asked to specify with whom, she said, “I was raised in the Church of Christ, and there are certainly members of my family who would disagree with that sentence. But I’m sitting in front of you because that’s not true. He absolutely loves wanderers even more than he loves museums full of good people we think are a thing.

McBryde says she started performing in bars when she was 19. “And I traveled alone – 60,000 miles a year in my truck with my dog ​​and my own PA,” she adds. “Nothing will reshape your belief system like that. ‘No one hangs out in bars except the bad guys.’ other people trying to find joy.

Singing affirmatively about queer people — on an album featuring two openly gay country artists in Clark and TJ Osborne — has also thrust McBryde into the culture war raging in Nashville over how gender is or should be. She refers to the feud between Maren Morris and Jason Aldean, in which the two stars traded barbs over trans youth issues, as “a disaster”, although she was initially reluctant to do prescriptions for the country industry.

“I think Nashville had such an idea of ​​what I should be that now I don’t care what Nashville should be,” she says, explaining that when she came to town she was advised to lose. weight and dye their hair. blonde to match a stereotype that her success has helped to dismantle. “I tend to be more inclusive, but I don’t really draw a lot of hard lines, especially in public. If you don’t like tattoos, don’t get them. If you’re against same-sex marriage, don’t don’t marry a homosexual. But can’t one just not be a…holes?”

She thought for a moment. “Country music has always been about coming across as a nice person,” she says. “But I’d like to see us be a good person.”

Patriots’ Kraft, school announcements denounce anti-Semitism https://alabamabluegrass.org/patriots-kraft-school-announcements-denounce-anti-semitism/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 17:21:53 +0000 https://alabamabluegrass.org/patriots-kraft-school-announcements-denounce-anti-semitism/ New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others in the sports world condemn recent incidents of hate speech toward Jews — not just anti-Semitic comments by the music mogul formerly known as Kanye West, but also outside of a college football game in Florida on Saturday night.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others in the sports world condemn recent incidents of hate speech toward Jews — not just anti-Semitic comments by the music mogul formerly known as Kanye West, but also outside of a college football game in Florida on Saturday night.

A day after the NBA and Brooklyn Nets released disapproving statements in response to Kyrie Irving’s apparent support for an anti-Semitic film, other team leaders and athletes are speaking out against hate and bigotry, on and in outside the field.

At one point during the Florida-Georgia football game on Saturday night, the phrase “Kanye is right about the Jews” was thrown outside one of the TIAA Stadium end zones. Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a reference to recent anti-Semitic comments Ye has made on social media and in interviews – comments that caused him to lose partnerships with Adidas and several other companies.

The University of Florida and the University of Georgia issued a joint statement on Sunday morning condemning the hate speech on the stadium and “the other anti-Semitic messages that have appeared in Jacksonville”. The schools also said that they “together denounce these acts and all acts of anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred and intolerance. We are proud to be home to strong and thriving Jewish communities at UGA and UF, and we unite against hate.

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry said on social media his northeast Florida city is “made better because of its diversity. Those who spread messages of hate, racism and anti-Semitism will not be able to change the heart of this city or its people. I condemn these cowards and their cowardly messages.

And Shad Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who play at TIAA Bank Field, said on social media that he was “personally appalled” by the rhetoric, calling it “hurtful and misguided”.

“It has to stop. I ask everyone to make it their mission to end ignorance and hatred,” Khan said. “Let’s get better.

Last year, the Anti-Defamation League recorded 2,717 incidents of harassment, vandalism or violence targeting Jews – the highest annual total since it began tracking such incidents in 1979. Recent incidents attacks come four years after the deadliest attack on American Jews, when 11 people were killed at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, and just days before the controversial midterm elections in the United States

A nonprofit organization founded by Kraft went a step further by planning to run an ad during the Patriots-New York Jets game on Sunday that condemned anti-Jewish hate speech and encouraged non-Jews to speak out against anti-Semitism.

“Recently, many of you have spoken up,” said the 30-Second advertisement from the Kraft Foundation to Combat Anti-Semitism. “We hear you today. We need to hear you tomorrow. There are less than 8 million Jews in this country. Fewer than those watching this ad. They need you to add your voice.”

The announcement, which was to air during the first quarter of the game, ends with the hashtag: #StandUptoJewishHate.

“I have committed enormous resources to this effort and promise to do more,” Kraft said in a statement. “I encourage others to join in these efforts. I hope this publicity will continue to enhance the national conversation about the need to speak out against hate of all kinds, and in particular to oppose Jewish hate.”

Also this week, Nets owner Joe Tsai said he was disappointed with seven-time All-Star Irving who appeared to support a movie Tsai said was “based on a book full of anti-Semitic misinformation” when he posted a link for the movie “From Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America” ​​on Twitter on Thursday.

Nets coach Steve Nash said the organization “told Kyrie about it” but didn’t elaborate. The NBA also spoke out on Saturday, saying “hate speech of any kind is unacceptable.”

“We believe we all have a role to play in ensuring that such words or ideas, including anti-Semitic ones, are challenged and refuted and we will continue to work with all members of the NBA community to ensure everyone understands the impact of their words and actions,” the league said.

Irving, however, responded in a post-game press conference on Saturday, claiming to believe in all religions and saying he was “not a divisive person when it comes to religion.” He added that he would “not give up everything I believe in”.

“Did I do something illegal? Did I hurt someone? said Irving. “Have I hurt anyone? Do I come out and say I hate a specific group of people? »

The Texas A&M football team changed the way they entered the field on Saturday night ahead of their 31-28 loss to No. 15 Mississippi. After coming out on Ye’s “Power” since 2012, the Aggies instead entered an instrumental of Childish Gambino’s “Bonfire.” Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork criticized West’s comments earlier this week.

The fallout around Ye’s comments also includes Donda Sports, a brand management agency he founded. Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Boston Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown have ended their associations with the agency, Donald and his wife, Erica, citing ‘shows of hatred and anti-Semitism ” from Ye.

The top-tier basketball team at Ye’s Donda Academy in California has also been affected, with the Los Angeles Times reporting on Friday that it confirmed four majors had dropped out of the school.

In early October, Ye, the rapper and mogul also known as Kanye West, posed during Paris Fashion Week in a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt. He then launched into a long litany of conspiratorial and anti-Semitic remarks on various platforms. As a result, several companies and others affiliated with Ye cut ties with him.

Here’s a running list of entities that left Ye in the dust recently — and one where he ended the deal first.

Difference

In mid-September, before the whole Paris Fashion Week debacle and after taking pictures of the retail company on Instagram, Ye announced to Gap that he was terminating their contract.

“Notably, Gap does not dispute that it failed for more than two years to sell a single product in a single Gap store, including one of its 500+ stories in America,” said the review shared by West on Instagram. “Gap also does not dispute that it has failed for more than two years to open a single dedicated store anywhere in the world.”

Instagram and Twitter

The two social media companies suspended Ye on Oct. 10 after a series of anti-Semitic posts that included an Instagrammed screenshot of a text conversation with Sean “Diddy” Combs where Ye accused Diddy of being controlled by Jews. On Twitter, the rapper threatened via Twitter to “move to Death Con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE”, fumbling for the “DEFCON” tag of the US Defense Condition Readiness Alert System.

Both companies said they removed offensive content posted by Ye and restricted his accounts. Access to the @kanyewest Instagram account was restored – at least for now – on October 27, while his Twitter account has shown no posts since October 8.

JPMorgan Chase

Conservative pundit Candace Owens, who posed in a “White Lives Matter” shirt with Ye in Paris, tweeted on October 12 that Ye had been “evicted” by JPMorgan Chase Bank. She included a redacted letter with the subject “IMPORTANT: Termination of our banking relationship”.

“I was told that no official reason was given, but they also sent this letter to confirm that he had until the end of November to find another place where the Yeezy empire could do its accounts” , wrote Owens.

Def Jam

Ye had a 10-album deal with Def Jam that was fulfilled after “Donda” was released in August 2021. A person familiar with the deal confirmed to The Times on Oct. 16 that the rapper is now a free agent. The label would also no longer distribute releases from the rapper’s Getting Out Our Dreams (GOOD) imprint.

It remains unclear if a major record label, some of which are publicly traded, would take West after his recent outbursts – even with his streak of 10 consecutive No. 1 albums. He could still release his next effort without record label backing, as he did in February with “Donda 2,” available only through his $200 Stem streaming gadget.

Balenciaga

The design house, which had West walk in its Paris Fashion Week show a day before its “White Lives Matter” fashion statement, cut ties with him on Oct. 21. Balenciaga and its creative director, Demna, have collaborated with and inspired West in the past and “engineered” his collaboration with Yeezy Gap.

“Balenciaga has no further relationship or future plans related to this artist,” the brand’s parent company, Kering, said in a brief statement.

AAC

The Times reported on Oct. 24 that talent agency CAA ended its relationship with Ye this month following his recent anti-Semitic outbursts in various interviews. CAA had only represented the rapper on tour, and he hadn’t toured since signing with them in 2016.

Separately, Ari Emanuel, managing director of talent agency WME, called on Spotify and Apple to take down West’s platform. He urged Adidas to end its relationship with Ye and called on Parler not to sell the platform to the artist.

“Those who continue to do business with West are giving an audience to his misguided hatred,” Emanuel wrote in an Oct. 19 op-ed in the Financial Times. “There should be no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism.”

MRC

Shortly after CAA’s decision became public, film and television production company MRC said it would shelve a completed documentary about West rather than distribute it.

“We cannot support any content that amplifies its platform,” MRC leaders said in a statement Oct. 24. “The silence from leaders and corporations regarding Kanye or anti-Semitism in general is appalling but not surprising. What is new and sad is the fear Jews have of speaking out in their own defense. .

Adidas

Ye’s statements during and immediately after her Paris Fashion Week show angered Adidas, which collaborated on the Yeezy shoe collection and came under pressure on social media and elsewhere. The company released a statement later that week, saying, “After repeated efforts to resolve the situation privately, we have made the decision to submit the partnership for review.”

The rapper-entrepreneur responded on Instagram, writing, “F— ADIDAS I AM ADIDAS ADIDAS RAPED AND STOLEN MY DESIGNS.

Then, on October 25, Adidas announced that it had ended its relationship with Ye after a “thorough review” of the relationship. He said he would immediately halt production of his Yeezy product line and stop payments to Ye and his companies. He expects his net income to be hit by up to $246 million this year as a result of the move.

Later on October 25, Foot Locker announced that it was removing Yeezys from its retail floors and asking employees to keep them in store back rooms pending further instructions, according to Footwear News.

Jaylen Brown and Aaron Donald / Donda Sports

Boston Celtics star forward Brown was one of the big-name athletes who signed with West’s marketing agency, Donda Sports. On October 24, he spoke out against Ye’s anti-Semitic comments but said he remained loyal to the agency. The next day he had changed his mind.

“I now recognize that there are times when my voice and my position cannot coexist in spaces that do not align with my position or my values. And, for this reason, I am ending my association with Donda Sports,” he said in a statement.

Donald, of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams, followed soon after.

“The recent comments and displays of hate and anti-Semitism are the exact opposite of how we choose to live our lives and raise our children…” he and his wife, Erica, said in a statement. statement. “As parents and members of society, we felt responsible to send a clear message that hateful words and actions have consequences and that we need to do better as human beings.”

Platoon

The stationary bike and exercise subscription company no longer uses West’s music in the soundtrack of its products.

“We take this issue very seriously and can confirm that Peloton has indefinitely suspended the use of Kanye West music on our platform,” Peloton told the Pelobuddy website on October 25. “This means that our instructors no longer use his music in newly produced classes and we are not suggesting any classes that include his music in our proactive member recommendations.

The company added that the decision was made “immediately after” West’s remarks. Peloton’s statement came a day after the lead instructor Alex Toussaint said at the end of a class, “You won’t hear this artist at all in my class, I promise. I don’t support hate speech at all, babe. I don’t tolerate this at all, okay? You won’t hear this artist in my class, I promise.

TJ Maxx

TJX Companies — which operates discount chain TJ Maxx, Home Goods and Marshalls, among others — said Oct. 26 that it had stopped sourcing surplus Yeezy items.

“At TJX, we do not tolerate any form of discrimination, harassment or hate. We have instructed our buying teams not to purchase this merchandise for sale in any of our stores globally,” the retailer said in a statement to CNNBusiness.

Donda Academy

This private Christian K-12 preparatory school didn’t exactly cut ties with Ye — it’s his academy — but it reportedly closed Oct. 27 for the remainder of the school year. The Times is working to confirm the status of the prep school, where tuition is around $15,000 a year.

“We intend to start again in September 2023, and we are confident that our scholars will continue to progress as creative innovators, courageous influencers, and next-generation academic leaders,” Director Jason Angell wrote in an e-mail. email obtained by TMZ. sent to parents on the night of October 26. It said Donda’s management team would help all families during the “transition”.

A second email obtained by TMZ and sent four hours later said it was from a group of parents. He reportedly asked parents and staff – but not students – to “Join us tomorrow morning [Oct. 27] in adoration for the return of Donda Academy. With the help of our parents and the community, we are back and coming back with a vengeance.

The school’s men’s basketball team, the Doves, was eliminated Oct. 26 from two high school tournaments: the prestigious Spalding Hoophall Classic and the Play by Play Classics showcase. The team was coached by NBA veteran Dorell Wright.

Madame Tussauds London

Tourists to the famous wax museum in London will not be able to pose in front of a model of the rapper: Ye has been transferred to an archive, according to the BBC. (A spokeswoman for the museum’s Hollywood location said Thursday that it did not and did not have a statue of Kanye West on site.)

Times writers Anousha Sakoui and Wendy Lee and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
