“Here Comes The Change” will appear in upcoming RBG film ‘On The Basis Of Sex’

Not only will the upcoming film On The Basis Of Sex benefit from having the incredible Felicity Jones take on the notorious RBG, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Now, Kesha reveals a bit of its soundtrack, a powerful ballad titled "Here Comes The Change." Alongside the lyric video, the singer shared a personal essay with Refinery 29 about what made writing the song so personal for her. 

Kesha opens with an acknowledgment of the cynicism surrounding politics for many young people right now. "The current situation in our country," she writes, "where every day the news brings word of yet another attack on civil rights for marginalized people, and where political polarization has made it difficult to even have conversations about the issues, is enough to make anyone want to wash their hands of the entire process." But Kesha doesn't want her fans, or any other young person, to let this stop them. "The key thing to remember is this: If we don't participate, if we don't make our voices heard, things will only get worse. In order to create the lasting change we want, we have to stay involved and above all, we have to vote." 

The singer explained that, initially, when she was approached to write a song for this film, she thought she was the wrong person. The film changed her mind. "In watching the film I was struck by how much Ginsburg was able to accomplish in her life," Kesha wrote, "and at the same time, how much more there is to do in the fight for equality for all people. It reminded me of—and strengthened—my belief that any single person can make lasting change, starting with one small action."

Her essay and lyric video end with a reminder to vote and a quote from Ginsberg herself. "Ruth Bader Ginsburg said it best: 'There is still work to be done.' This fight is far from over, but my will is far from gone." Check out the new track above. 

On The Basis Of Sex hits theaters on December 25.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Congrats!

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
