VARIETY: Bryan Singer has proven nearly unstoppable in spite of numerous #MeToo allegations — though he was basically scrubbed from the finished product in press interviews, his Bohemian Rhapsody was an Oscar fave. But will he direct again? Not if people like Blake Stuerman are heard. Stuerman, now 30, has written a detailed account of his yearslong sexual relationship with the X-Men director, explaining why he feels it was physically and emotionally abusive, even if it was barely legal.
Like the men who accused Michael Jackson of molestation after having defended him for years, Stuerman is a former Singer apologist. No more.
I could never have predicted what came next, it all happened so fast. I heard loud yelling coming toward me. When I turned, I saw Bryan charging toward us screaming very angrily. He violently attacked one of the guests near me. I grabbed Bryan and took him back into the house. His eyes were wild and full of rage. I had never seen him like this before. We went to his room and he slammed the door. I found a shattered lamp on the floor and began picking up the pieces. “I’ll fucking kill you if you leave me.” Those were his exact words. I had never witnessed or experienced physical violence before meeting Bryan.

CNN: One of many positives about our idols aging is some of them gain wisdom. Brian May of Queen, battling COVID-19 in spite of being vaccinated and boosted, has taken to social media to beg his followers to get “jabbed,” saying his bout has been miserable and he fears he might not have recovered as well (or at all) had he not been vaxxed.
ABC NEWS: President Biden announces plan to mail 500M free rapid COVID-19 tests to Americans who want them.
HUFF POST: After Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) singlehandedly tanked Biden's (popular!) Build Back Better Act by saying he can't vote for it — after saying he could — he was trashed by various Dems. Speaker Pelosi held her fire, offering a glimmer of hope that perhaps parts of the bill would be salvaged, but his action (or his pledged inaction) is historically traitorous to his party and, I would argue, to his country. Not to let those 50 Republicans off the hook. Now, the Dems are hoping to move forward and get ... something ... out of Manchin, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vows there will be a vote on the Senate floor to force Manchin to vote against the package on the record.
