’Ernest Cole: Lost and Found’ Director Raoul Peck: ‘There Is a Fight to Be Had About the State of the World’

Gregg Goldstein Raoul Peck‘s life is as fascinating as his films, filled with unexpected twists and turns. From his early stints as a cab driver and journalist, to a minister of culture post in his native Haiti, to teaching, to founding his Velvet Film production shingle to his breakthrough when he earned an Oscar nomination as producer/director with the James Baldwin doc, “I Am Not Your Negro,” the common denominator is Peck’s drive to make life better through his work.

2024 queen, was lifted up the steps of the Met like the fashion royalty she is.most people interpreted the dress code—"the Garden of Time"—florally. But Tyla, the 22-year-old South African singer whose debut album was released in March, took the suggestion in a more intellectual direction, embodying “the sands of time” in both her sculpted gown, sand on her body, and a handheld hourglass.But because the piece, created by Balmain, was so restrictive, Tyla wasn't quite sure she could make it up the museum's iconic steps without becoming, well, a beached sand sculpture.

Judas Priest’s Ian Hill: “People have been trying to kill heavy metal now for about 40 years”

Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill has claimed that people have been “trying to kill heavy metal” for about 40 years.The metal musician made the comments in a recent interview with music YouTube channel Metal Oda ahead of their concert in Istanbul, Turkey this July.Asked what advice he would give himself if he could go back to the beginning of the band’s career more than 50 years ago, the bassist spoke about the importance of “patience and persistence” (per Blabbermouth).Elaborating on the title of the new album ‘Invincible Shield’, Hill continued: “We’ve had a lot of stuff thrown at us over the years. I mean, people have been trying to kill heavy metal now for about 35, 40 years, so it’s always been a bit of a struggle against the establishment, if you know what I mean.”The artist concluded that the band had “managed to survive and come through it”.Hill’s comments come after Judas Priest’s own Rob Halford reflected on being labelled ‘Metal God’ by fans.Speaking to NME as part of a recent In Conversation video interview, he shared that the nickname “kind of got a life of its own and then I started to take it too seriously”, adding: “So much so that I’ve actually got a trademark on ‘Metal God’ because I cherish it so much – not just not for me, but for the band and the fans as well”.The vocalist said he always has “fun” with it, sharing: “I always say: ‘There was only one Elvis, and there’s only one Metal God.’ And I mean that, you know, with my tongue in my cheek.”Halford also expressed his relief that the band were aligned in their outlooks on fame and music.
