Jack White Honors Eddie Van Halen Through ‘SNL’ Performance

Per their original schedule, the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live was supposed to have country singer Morgan Wallen as its musical guest. Reports from an Alabama publication found that Wallen ran up a fairly high coronavirus risk for the show after he was spotted at a college party, however, and as a result he was dropped from the show. Coming in as a well-prepared substitute for the late scratch, Jack White was announced as Wallen replacement on Friday.

Proving to be a smooth transition from artist to artist, Jack White took the SNL stage backed by a small band that was comprised of drummer Daru Jones and bassist Dominic John Davis.

For his SNL performances, Jack White delivered some of his best hits while putting a new spin on some of them. Playing three songs for viewers during his set, White’s highlight performance came with his closing track.

Did Kamala Harris’s debate performance energize women voters?

With all the post-debate chatter about whether Vice President Mike Pence patronized and “mansplained” to California’s U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris and whether her “I’m speaking” was powerful or not, perhaps the most consequential point is this: Did the first woman of color on a presidential ticket do enough to energize women to vote?

With less than a month remaining before the Nov. 3 election — and with a polarized nation eagerly taking sides — it’s difficult to find any voter who is truly undecided. But with the gender gap widening when it comes to presidential preferences, the power of the women’s vote, especially if the election is close, is all the more consequential.

“This election is very little about changing people’s minds. Most people are where they’re going to be,” said Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American Politics and Women at Rutgers University. “The question is, can part

Megan Thee Stallion delivered a politically charged performance of “Savage” for the Season 46 premiere of “SNL” on Saturday, taking a moment to protest the Breonna Taylor ruling and injustice against Black women.

The rapper performed a remix of her chart-topping song in front of a black screen emblazoned with the message “Protect Black Women” (and later bullet holes), pausing midway to play audio clips from Malcolm X’s famous “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?” speech from 1962 as well as one from activist Tamika Mallory.

“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negros that sold our people into slavery,” Mallory could be heard saying, referring to the Kentucky Atty. Gen. who led the Taylor case. Taylor was killed in her apartment in March by Louisville police officers. A grand jury failed to charge

Trump’s performance was a gift to American democracy

President Donald Trump’s demeanor in the first presidential debate, which some have characterized as “out-of-control,” was no surprise. As the 90 minutes wore on, he became increasingly red-faced, reflecting an escalating fever pitch that crested twice: first, when he refused the invitation of moderator Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceChris Wallace: Trump arrived too late to be tested in Ohio before debate, relied on ‘honor system’ Presidential debate proves the power of the climate movement Fox News anchors, executives to be tested after potential COVID-19 exposure at debate MORE to condemn violent white supremacists; second, when he met Joe BidenJoe BidenTrump campaign manager tests positive for COVID-19 Twitter to remove posts hoping for Trump’s death Obama sends well wishes to Trump, hopes he is ‘on path to speedy recovery’ MORE’s mention of his late son Beau with a chilling attack on Hunter Biden’s history of addiction.

Hayley Squires: ‘Some women enjoy the performance of sex’ | Television & radio

Jolene Dollar is drifting off into the same mental to-do list any one of us might have at work, while a colleague is boring on about his planning permission issues: put the washing on, get the mince out of the freezer, iron some school shirts. She also has one fishnet-stockinged leg hitched up over a desk, and he is about to enter her from behind once the cameras start rolling again. A fairly average day at work, then, for Britain’s top adult performer, as she dabs at her eye with a tissue and swills her mouth out.

In Adult Material, the new four-part Channel 4 drama set in the world of porn, Jolene is one of the “last of the old-timers, for want of a better phrase”, says Hayley Squires, who plays her, chatty but thoughtful on the phone from her home in Kent. This is a first TV

I thought a spaceship landed in my driveway last week, but it was a 2020 McLaren GT. That’s better. I have a license to operate one of those.

Low, wide and ridiculously graceful, the GT is McLaren’s “practical” car, a European-style GT in the sense that it can carry a couple off to a weekend getaway at speed, but also in comfort and style. It’s longer than McLaren’s other street cars, designed to be a daily driver — if your daily drive is from your Swiss chalet to a bank in Zurich where they know your number, not your name. GTs traditionally seat four, but there’s no rule that says they must.

McLaren’s other cars are likely to spend at least some time on the track, according to company data. The GT is for more relaxed pursuits.

Trump needs to do better with women. Even Republicans say his debate performance failed to do that

President Donald Trump took four years of personal venom and outright lies and stuffed it all into 90 minutes of chaotic sparring with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night — a performance that, for all its sound and fury, even his allies said afterward was unlikely to change the dynamic of a contest that polls show he is losing.

One of the biggest issues Trump has faced in the polls: a large gender gap.

“The main thing keeping an anvil on Trump’s head in terms of job approval all this four years has been women. He does fine among men, but women have never given him high marks,” said Scott Jennings, a longtime adviser to Senate Majority Leader
