Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s jazzy new duets album, Cheek To Cheek, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s the second No. 1 for Bennett and the third for Gaga.
The standards album, released Sept. 23 on Streamline/Interscope/RPM/Columbia Records, sold 131,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also hits No. 1 on both the Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums charts.
88-year old Bennett is the oldest living act to earn a No. 1 album, beating a record he set himself back in 2011. That year, a then 85-year old Bennett scored his first No. 1 album with Duets II (which included a collaboration with Gaga on “The Lady Is a Tramp”).
Gaga previously led the list with ARTPOP, less than a year ago, and Born This Way, in 2011.
***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.
If depressed thoughts (symptoms of depression and anxiety) spoke to you online, how would you cope? Your answer could be the key to real-life recovery.
I’m so proud of this video, and was so scared of publishing it.
I had it ready to go at 9AM, but couldn’t bring myself to post it until noon. I felt (and feel) very, very vulnerable sharing the deeply personal inner debates I face against depression. It’s scary; I was afraid that people would make fun of me. But ultimately I believe that silence only breeds shame and illness, and I refuse to spend my life bowing before those altars.
50+ hours went into making this video, which is (by far) the longest an episode of HtA has ever taken to complete. I hope with my whole heart that it is helpful to some of y’all. The response thus far has been so kind and generous that I have tears in my eyes as I type this. Guys, I have known from the start that you are awesome, but your awesomeness has never meant so much to me as it does right now.
A quick note about why the reception y’all have given the video means so much to me.
