Golden State Warriors deny listening to Rihanna in the locker room


Rihanna who? Never heard of her.

Star player Steph Curry and other members of the warriors have gone to great lengths to deny a taste for RiRi, probably, most people think, because the she’s expertly trolling them from courtside seats, living her best life as a mega-LeBron James fan. 

Curry was asked if the team listens to Rihanna in the locker room and he denied that the team had ever listened to her, after Rihanna and Kevin Durant had a championship level staring contest.

Prophets of Rage pay tribute to Chris Cornell, with help from Serj Tankian


System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian joined the Prophets of Rage in Germany on Saturday for a cover of “Like A Stone.”

It was a tribute to Chris Cornell, who fronted both the song and the band associated with it — Audioslave — on their self-titled 2002 debut. The supergroup matched the Soundgarden lead singer up with three former members of Rage Against the Machine: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk.

That same trio continues to play together in Prophets, a supergroup they formed with DJ Lord and Chuck D (of Public Enemy) and B-Real (of Cypress Hill) in 2016. Both MCs ceded the stage to Tankian during a performance at the Rock Im Park festival in Nuremberg, Germany. Read more…

U.S. mayors and governors defy Trump, will stick to Paris agreement anyway


Cities and states across the U.S. will keep fighting climate change, despite President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the country from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Local leaders from across the country say they’re not backing down from America’s commitments under the historic climate accord. In recent days governors and nearly 200 mayors — from small towns to megacities — have vowed to collectively reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and adopt clean energy technologies.

Their swift response offers more than just a dose of cheerful optimism. It signals that America’s hard-fought progress on climate issues won’t be so easily dismantled just because climate deniers and fossil fuel industry allies hold the top seats in the U.S. government, observers said. Read more…

Man fleeing London attack with beer in hand becomes unlikely symbol of London pride


A young man who fled yesterday’s terrorist attacks with a pint of beer in hand has become something of an internet hero.

The photo, which has been retweeted over 28,000 times, features the man fleeing from the scene with a pint of beer in hand. For some, the photo provided a moment of profoundly dark comedy on a day otherwise entirely colored by tragedy.
