We've had a lot of voices chime in on recent developments in politics but we've found the voice we've been missing. TMZ recently ran into Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell and asked him to give his thoughts on President-elect Donald Trump.
The singer was pretty heated about the whole thing and said, “Hollywood needs to chill out, all right? You’re talking about the commander-in-chief, right? We’re talking about respect,” sounding less like a Backstreet Boy and more like an old-school police chief from Jersey who's seen things he can't talk about.
Littrell went on to say, “In my opinion he’s going to do so many great things for this nation, and even for the people who disapprove of him. Give peace a chance! I have faith in the system. I have faith in his character, his beliefs and his balls. Let’s just put it that way.”
In another interesting revelation, Littrell shared that he was approached to ask the rest of the Backstreet Boys if they would join him in performing the inauguration but the old crew couldn't work it out with rehearsals for their new Vegas show taking the priority.
I guess you can want it that way but not have it that way (that's a reference to the 1999 hit from the Backstreet Boys "I Want It That Way" in case you didn't replay that CD a million times like some members of the RELEVANT staff did.) Discuss
After eight films, it’s hard to expect too many surprises from The Fast and the Furious. However, Benjamin Martin and Dustin McLean have added yet another banger to their ongoing Trailer Mix series and this time the CineFix duo have combined The Fast and Furious with The Little Rascals.
The clip is narrated by audio slices from The Fast and the Furious while scenes from The Little Rascals play out in an intense, but charming trailer for a movie we’ll mostly like never actually get to see. Even still, the mashup is everything we didn’t know we needed from the Fast and Furious franchise.
If you're a man however, findings recently presented by PerryUndem, a nonpartisan research and polling firm, show you might find it surprising. The research firm surveyed 1,302 adults in December via the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago’s AmeriSpeak panel and discovered that 82 percent of women said they felt unequal because of their gender.
The majority of people surveyed agreed it's a better time to be a man than a woman yet only Republican men expressed feeling the opposite. Only 37 percent of the respondents surveyed thought it was a good time to be a woman in America.
It seems that the difference was not only in how quality of life was perceived but also whether we'd achieved gender equality already. Ninety-three percent of the participants surveyed said they believe in gender equality in work, life and politics. Twenty percent of those polled believed we had already achieved it, 12 percent of them being women. Discuss
