Adam Lambert has given a heartfelt rendition of Tears For Fears’ ‘Mad World’ as part of the Global Pride 2020 livestream event.
On Saturday June 27, organisations from across the world came together for Global Pride, a worldwide celebration of the diverse LGBTQ+ community. The 24-hour livestream event also featured films, talks, speeches and more from a vast network of musicians, political leaders and human rights activists.
The Queen vocalist performed the socially distanced cover for the virtual event after he shared an impassioned speech. “It’s amazing to be a part of the LGTBQ+ community,” he said. “I’m very proud of my brothers and sisters. We are amazing.”
“That’s not to say there’s not a lot of work to be done,” he continued. “We all know this. History never is a straight line of progress. There are setbacks, there’s side to side.”

Lambert continued, saying “In light of the recent Black Lives Matter protests that have been going on all over the world, I think it’s our responsibility as a community to use our empathy, to give a little extra love and support to our members of our community that are people of colour.”
“Let’s take this time during world Pride to get as connected as we can, to reach out, make new friends, educate yourself, listen, get involved.”
Earlier this month Lambert called out US President Donald Trump for his comments at a press conference that it was “a great day” for George Floyd after his death sparked worldwide protests. Lambert called Trump “a joke, a liar and a cancer”.
Hosted by Todrick Hall, Global Pride 2020 also featured performances and speeches from musicians Kesha, Calum Scott, Rita Ora, Leann Times, Natasha Bedingfield, Olivia Newton-John and more. LGBT+ actors were represented by the likes of Leslie Jordan and Stephen Fry.
Beatles girlfriends: Who were the Beatles dating before they got famous?
“It had been the same with other girlfriends I’d had. There was something the matter with me.”
Despite these difficulties, Cynthia and John got married, after she became pregnant with their son, Julian Lennon.
Speaking about how Cynthia felt about their marriage when Beatlemania hit in her 2006 book, John, she said: “I was usually dismissed as the impressionable young girl who fell for him, then trapped him into marriage.”
Cynthia also claimed she was told to pretend she was someone else to keep her marriage to John secret in their early days, telling NPR: “I was asked many times if I was John’s wife, and I had to refuse and say, ‘No, no, I’m somebody else.’”
Julian was born on April 8, 1963, but John said unsavoury things about him in his 1980 interview with Playboy.
Viola Davis Takes Over for Kylie in the ‘WAP’ Video — and Cardi B Reacts
“Who did this? 😩🤣😍 #HowToGetAwayWithWAP,” the 54-year-old Oscar winner wrote via Instagram on Sunday, August 9, alongside an edit of her face on the 23-year-old reality star’s body.
The most supportive comment of all, however, came from the 27-year-old “Bodak Yellow” rapper herself. “I’m so fan out right now ya don’t even know,” Cardi tweeted on Sunday, sharing the hilarious edit on her own feed.
On Friday, August 7, Cardi broke the internet with the video for her latest single with Megan Thee Stallion. Jenner was one of many famous faces to appear in the visual, along with Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto and Rubi Rose. Despite the fierce female empowerment on display in the video, fans weren’t too happy with the decision to include the Kylie Cosmetics founder in such an otherwise diverse group of women.
“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door,” one fan tweeted about the video on Sunday. “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”
Cardi, however, was quick to fire back at the negativity surrounding Jenner’s cameo, noting that the makeup mogul was “so lovely” to her daughter, Kulture, and her sister, Hennessy, at Stormi Webster‘s birthday party.
“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f–kin ass off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense?” the Grammy winner replied. “The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass. … Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about. This is not about f–kin race.”

John Lennon Elton John: Did they ever collaborate? Story behind Sir Elton and Lennon songs
However, John and Sir Elton’s collaborations were few but mainly consisted of the pair contributing their musical talents to each other’s work.
First, Sir Elton asked for his friend’s help on a Beatles cover, and in 1974 John helped Sir Elton form his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
The B-side to this track was One Day at a Time, by John Lennon, and thus began a beautiful partnership.
Of course, John was not going to appear on the track in a normal way, and instead, he was credited as Dr Winston O’Boogie, with Winston being John’s middle name.
