    genius.com ^ | 1965 | Jagger & Richards
    Despite the countless number of rock songs about lust, this one seems to stand out the most among critics and fans alike. Known for its timeless riff (which Keith Richards literally wrote in his sleep), this song placed #2 on the Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Released in 1965, “Satisfaction” is the song that cemented the already popular Rolling Stones as superstars.
  • Paul McCartney says Beyoncé’s ‘Blackbird’ cover ‘reinforces’ civil rights message that inspired him to write it

    Paul McCartney is singing his praises for Beyoncé’s version of “Blackbird.” The music legend on Thursday wrote on his Instagram page that he’s “so happy” with the Grammy-winner’s cover of the 1968 Beatles track that is included on her newly released “Act II: Cowboy Carter” album, under the slightly revised title “Blackbiird.” “I think she does a magnificent version of it and it reinforces the civil rights message that inspired me to write the song in the first place,” he wrote. He went on to “urge anyone who has not heard it yet to check it out.”
  • Beyoncé inflicts unspeakable horrors on Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that all sane and decent people like, if not love, Dolly Parton. Another universal truth is that Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” is one of the greatest country songs ever written. But one of the truths of life in 2024 is that modern pop culture degrades everything it touches. Nothing more clearly illustrates that fact than Beyoncé’s aggressively “girl boss” version of Parton’s classic song. It’s a travesty and a metaphor for so much of the damage leftism has inflicted on the world. The original Dolly Parton song sees Parton begging the breathtakingly beautiful Jolene to...

    During an impassioned segment on MSNBC, Donny Deutsch slammed Hollywood and corporate America for their silence amid Hamas’ deadly attacks on Israel. “I don’t understand the silence from Hollywood. I don’t understand the silence from corporate America. I don’t understand the silence from the academics. And I don’t understand the silence from so many politicians,” Deutsch said, speaking with anchor Nicolle Wallace. Deutsch, who is Jewish, was previously a host on MSNBC and CNBC. The television personality and political analyst now hosts the podcast “On Brand With Donny Deutsch.” “There is not context here. This is about the slaughtering of...

    Beyoncé is going up against the Internal Revenue Service in a recent petition filed in United States Tax Court contesting the nearly $2.7 million taxes and penalties the agency alleged she owes. Earlier this month, the "Break My Soul" singer, 41, petitioned for the court to reconsider a January Notice of Deficiency assessed by the IRS. The notice claimed Beyoncé owes over $1.4 million in additional tax and over $288,000 in penalty for 2019. For 2018, it alleged the singer owes about $805,000 in additional tax and $161,000 in penalty, according to Forbes. In her 20-page petition, Beyoncé argues that...

    In 2013, Beyoncé released her self-titled album as a surprise drop. With fans and music enthusiasts up in arms, the Houston native created an uproar worldwide as people scrambled to get a piece of what the Queen was offering. Fast forward to Summer 2022, and Beyoncé dropped her most recent project, “Renaissance.” With heavy influence from vintage dance, house, and disco records — the “Single Ladies” singer, yet again, had the world in a tizzy, ready to consume her music. This time, however, her musical offering came with some questions about the business of her production, and artists like Right...

    A New York Times star columnist has lashed Barack Obama for axing people who helped him to the top from his lavish 60th birthday guest list in favor of A-list stars. Maureen Dowd branded Obama 'Barack Antoinette' - a reference to the out-of-touch renaissance queen - and likened him to Jay Gatsby, the shallow people-pleaser from F Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby in her scathing piece, published Saturday. She highlighted how the former president cut his ex-chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and former campaign strategist David Axelrod from the original 600-person guest list, despite both helping him secure his...

    This article includes clips of young children dressing and dancing sexually.At a time the left has declared that “silence is violence,” Michelle Obama’s silence on Netflix’s controversial movie “Cuties” has not gone unnoticed. It is also undermining her brand as “America’s mom” and chief defender of female empowerment across the globe.No one should doubt the considerable power former first lady Michelle Obama wields within Netflix or the unrivaled cultural influence she has to speak out in defense of preserving girlhood and innocence. Sadly, however, Michelle has a troubling history of celebrating, rather than denouncing, the sexualization of popular culture...

    Disney dropped ‘Black Is King’ yesterday, a new movie from Beyonce that is being billed as a ‘tribute to black power’, an interesting concept to say the least. Imagine the same type of thing being release to promote ‘white power’, but I digress. Racist overtones aside, ‘Black Is King’ is yet another vehicle for Beyonce in which satanic imagery, like the baphomet headdress you see in the main photo, is splashed all through the movie. Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have a long and storied history of cozying up to satanic and Illuminati imagery, so much so that here fans...

    Tina Lawson expressed indignation that Kentucky’s attorney general paused the highly scrutinized investigation into Breonna Taylor’s killing to get engaged. Lawson’s scorching Instagram post comes two weeks after daughter Beyoncé expressed exasperation in an open letter to Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron. Both are anguished that it has taken months to decide whether to charge the three Louisville police officers who killed Taylor while she slept in her bed at 1 a.m. Lawson is especially vexed that the 34-year-old attorney general is not working around the clock to expedite the conclusion of this monumental inquest.

    “A national reparations policy is a moral, democratic, and economic imperative.” (Danny Glover before a House Judiciary panel, June 19.)So apparently “morality” and “democracy” are issues of enormous concern for Danny Glover, no? Well: “My heart beat faster!–This is one of the most important moments in my life!” said a hyperventilating Danny Glover while visiting the Che Guevara memorial in Santa Clara, Cuba during one of his frequent red-carpet visits to Stalinist, terror-sponsoring Cuba where he renders honor and tribute to the mass-murdering terrorist whose lifelong craving was to NUKE Glover’s homeland–and whose regime jailed and tortured the most and longest-suffering BLACK political...

    Alfalfa and Buckwheat take the He-Man Woman Haters Club oathWhen Spanky and the Gang formed the “He-Man Woman-Haters Club” excluding girls from clubs was still a thing. In America today you can’t exclude anybody from anything – well, except for banning conservatives from college campuses. And Muslims; they can still exclude girls (and gays) from whatever because…religious freedom. But don’t expect to use your “Freedom of Religion card” if you are a Christian who chooses not to make cakes celebrating a gay wedding. Your white privilege has officially expired as of now. And yours too, America. Send In The ‘Migrants!’I...

    That's why she ended up signing a deal with Adidas Before Beyoncé became the new Queen of Athletic Wear over at Adidas, as was announced yesterday, she was courted by a number of brands. Jordan, Under Armour, and Reebok all had meetings with the pop star before she eventually partnered with the three stripes. Now, it’s been reported that the reason Reebok lost out on the disposable income of Hive members is because of a humiliating lack of a diversity in their pitch meeting. According to ESPN’s Nick DePaula, Beyoncé went into a meeting with Reebok in good faith. She...
