Update to the Dancing Man Story



Back in March photos of the “dancing man” were blasted around the internet. The images were taken by people who used them to body shame the man who was just trying to have a good time. Instead, the attempt to humiliate and body shame the man backfired. Thousands of people rallied around the “dancing man”, Sean O’Brien, and supported his right to dance as he pleases. One woman who commented on the photo offered to throw Sean a dance party if he could ever make it from the United Kingdom to Los Angeles, California according to Susan McGalla. It looks as though Sean was finally able to and he got his dance party as promised.

According to the story on The Good News Network, the money raised through the GoFundMe campaign allowed Sean to make the trip. He, along with hundreds of others, danced the night away at the Avalon Nightclub over the weekend. There were even some celebrities in attendance. Moby performed a DJ set at the Hollywood club and stars such as Whitney Thore, Andrew W.K., Tatyana Ali, and Monika Lewinsky all came out to support the event.

The money raised through the GoFundMe campaign was more than enough for Sean to travel to the United States. The remainder of the funds were donated to anti-bullying organizations in the US.

Bill Cosby Speaks Out



Bill Cosby was one of the most respected comedians in his time. Cosby was known for his hilarious stand-up comedy routine. Bill Cosby was thought of as a hero among comedians, and he made millions of people laugh without using foul language. Cosby starred in one of the most successful sitcom television shows of all time. However, Jason Halpern tells of a different Bill Cosby who has gone through a tremendous amount of controversy in the last few years.

Over thirty women have come forward and claimed that Bill Cosby has either raped them or drugged them. These allegations come as chilling and haunting news to Bill Cosby supporters. Some people refuse to believe these reports, but how can all of these different women be lying? Bill Cosby rarely speaks about the allegations, but he was recently interviewed on ABC News. Bill Cosby was asked several questions about the allegations, and he did not avoid answering them.

Bill Cosby said that he has never seen anything like this in his life, and he feels that someone is out to destroy him. However, many people think that Bill Cosby is guilty, but Cosby has never been arrested for any of these alleged criminal acts. Nonetheless, Bill Cosby is currently speaking to children in underprivileged cities across America, and he hopes to not be discriminated against for his recent public controversies.

David Letterman Reflects on the End of His Career



Rolling Stone Magazine has an interview with entertainer David Letterman on their website. It is part of their continuing coverage of the final days of Letterman’s television show, which ends of May 20th.

Interestingly, Letterman says in the interview that he is dreading the final shows, since he doesn’t like to look back. He says that he’d rather just reflect on his career once it’s officially over. I think that’s a good attitude. I’d rather see him just do a regular show on his last night instead seeing guests saying endless goodbyes.

Letterman has done almost 6,000 television shows says producer Brad Reifler (YahooFinance article). Learning your craft on the air can’t be easy since everyone sees your mistakes. Letterman has become a much more mature and polished guest since his early shows on NBC in the early 1980’s. Letterman says that he doesn’t do rehearsals anymore. Maybe he’s past the point where they would help him, or maybe he’s just sick of them.

Letterman says that at age 67 he just doesn’t have the energy he used to. He became a father at age 56, and he says that he’s looking forward to being able to spend more time with his son. It’s understandable that he wants to end his television career, and I think it’s good that he’s going out when he’s on top of his game.
