Netflix's Blonde faces backlash over graphic sex scenes and talking aborted foetus
Elvis, Elton John and Freddie Mercury, unsuspecting viewers might think Blonde’s exploration of Marilyn Monroe’s life was a similar affair.Brace for impact, because this is a very different movie from a filmmaker who is known for not pulling his punches.Directed by Andrew Dominik, the filmmaker behind The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly, his new film has been met with immediate backlash.Coming from critics and viewers alike, to call the Netflix film divisive would be an understatement,Ana de Armas takes on the larger-than-life role, with the project marketed as a fictionalised chronicle of Marilyn’s inner life.Since debuting at film festivals earlier this year, the hitback has been intense – here’s why.To set the record straight, this isn’t a biopic in the traditional sense, as it is actually based on a book that told a fictionalised take on Marilyn Monroe’s life - the 1999 novel Blonde, by Joyce Carol Oates.Some have argued adapting this to the big screen will create a misconception about the star’s life.On Twitter, one viewer made sure to make this clear to other fans, writing: “Blonde is heavily based on a FICTIONAL book about Marilyn Monroe that will go to feed the public more lies about her.

Brian May and Roger Taylor join Foo Fighters for Queen set at Taylor Hawkins tribute concert
Queen – lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor – joined the Foo Fighters to perform a five-song set of their own hits at the first Taylor Hawkins tribute concert.The special gig – which took place at Wembley Stadium last night (September 3) and was simulcast all over the web, TV and streaming platforms – honoured the late Foos drummer with performances from Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Supergrass, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Blink-182’s Travis Barker, Kesha, and more.The Queen/Foos supergroup were introduced with archival footage of Hawkins himself, who welcomed Roger Taylor out at one of the Foos own shows before he passed. Hawkins was a noted superfan of the British rock icons, and Foos sets would often see the drummer take over from Dave Grohl to perform lead vocals on a cover of ‘Somebody To Love’.“When I was 10 years old, my older sister took me to go see Queen in concert – the first concert I ever saw – and I watched the fucking drummer, and I said, ‘I wanna fucking be him, I wanna do that’,” Hawkins says in the archival clip screened at last night’s concert, after hyping the crowd up with his imitation of Freddie Mercury’s famous “ay-oh” chant.The set itself began with a cover of Queen’s 1977 hit ‘We Will Rock You’, for which Taylor was joined on drums by his son Rufus, and Luke Spiller of The Struts sang lead vocals.
