Fans of Taylor Swift also got involved because West brought up the VMAs interruption yet again. Read some of the comments here.
+ Republican extremists are creating fake black profiles on Twitter to go around the platform's new ban of accounts that post hate speech. Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin stated the following instructions to participants: “We’ve got a big campaign coming up. Just go on black Twitter and see what they look like, copy that model. Start filling it with rap videos and booty-shaking or whatever else these blacks post. Read through their posts to get an idea of how they post. You need to be able to post in a manner which is indistinguishable from normal black tweeters.”
+ Kate Bush recently opened up to BBC Radio's 6 Music, marking her first interview in five years. During the discussion with Matt Everitt, she talked about personal matters such as her friendship with Prince, her history of anxiety, and her forthcoming album of live recordings from her 2014 residency at the Hammersmith Apollo.
