Russell Simmons Takes Polygraph After Assault Allegations

Russell SimmonsPolygraph Proves I'm InnocentIn Alleged Sexual Assault 12/14/2017 2:29 PM PST EXCLUSIVE Russell Simmons hooked himself up to a lie detector, and says the results prove he did NOT sexually assault model Keri Claussen Khalighi. TMZ obtained this image of Simmons taking the polygraph Wednesday in the L.A. area. Russell's camp says it was administered by a national leader in the field of polygraphing. We're told he was asked a series of questions about the allegations made by Khalighi. You'll recall, she claims Simmons forced her into performing oral sex on him -- back in 1991 when she was 17 -- while director Brett Ratner sat and watched. According to Simmons' attorneys, Michael Sterling and E. Carlos Tanner, Simmons passed with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by 4 other women. They say Russell will release all the results once he's completed the tests. This marks a shift in Simmons' response. He initially ..

Ronan Farrow Says America Needed a Wake-Up Call on Sexual Misconduct

Ronan FarrowKeep It Up, Accusers ...America Needs This Wake-Up Call 12/14/2017 1:59 PM PST EXCLUSIVE Ronan Farrow's whistleblowing article on Harvey Weinsteinopened the floodgates of sexual harassment allegations in and out of Hollywood -- and he says it's exactly what America needed. We got Ronan catching a flight out of LAX Thursday and asked him about alleged sexual abusers starting to fight back. As we reported, PBS host Tavis Smiley believes he was railroaded by a "sloppy" investigation. Ronan says even if some of the accused are pissed off, it's worth it because victims have had to be silent for decades -- and conversations about sexual misconduct are long overdue. He's hopeful the convos are gonna create boundaries for men in power, including his own estranged dad, Woody Allen and Morgan Spurlock, who confessed to sexual assault. Let's block ads! (Why?)

Pot's Not Legal in Canada Yet – So Why Are Dispensaries Selling it?

Walk down Queen Street West, one of Toronto's cooler shopping districts, and you'll find something new amid the designer boutiques and H&Ms: stores selling marijuana. The quality of these places varies widely, from unfinished rooms where weed is sold from folding tables, to chic storefronts with the sleek modernity of an Apple store. Whether they advertise themselves as medicinal or recreational, these shops all have one thing in common: as of now, they're completely illegal. RelatedCanada's Legal Weed: What You Need to Know Justin Trudeau introduced a bill that would make marijuana legal – but what will that look like, and what will it mean for the U.S.? On a recent afternoon, a polite young woman who answered the phone at one Toronto dispensary told Rolling Stone that no prescription was needed to come in and purchase marijuana. When asked if this was legal, she gave a long, regretful "No," before explaining that shops like hers were "peacefully breaking the law..

'Great American Baking Show' pulled amid Johnny Iuzzini allegations

Celebrity pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini is reportedly facing allegations from multiple women who accused him of harassment and abuse."In light of allegations that recently came to our attention, ABC has ended its relationship with Johnny Iuzzini and will not be airing the remainder of 'The Great American Baking Show' episodes," an ABC spokesman said in a statement. "ABC takes matters such as those described in the allegations very seriously and has come to the conclusion that they violate our standards of conduct."Last month, the digital news site Mic reported that four former employees who worked for Iuzzini from 2009 and 2011 in the pastry kitchen of the famed Jean-Georges restaurant in New York City described the work environment as "rampant with incidents of sexual harassment."In response to the story, Iuzzini characterized the accusations as "inaccurate" and expressed regrets that the women "did not feel comfortable coming to me as their superior and letting me know how the..

For the Culture: 6 Things We Hope to See Happen in Latin Music in...

This year in Latin music brought about plenty of dialogue around lyrical content, cultural significance, influence, appropriation, politics and, of course, quality. In an industry dominated by mainstream acts, driven by the urban beat, we got to see newcomers like Bad Bunny emerge as a poster child for trap en Español. We also saw the arrival of promising artists like Messiah el Artista and Ozuna, who this year snagged a seat at the table as one of the most popping reggaetoneros of his generation. Meanwhile, female acts whose music we clearly love but often fail to recognize -- Ibeyi, Mon Laferte and Mala Rodriguez, for instance -- were perpetually underrepresented and little-talked-about in an era where more and more have the creative freedom and resources to produce great music, but lack the virtual support or global reach to rise to the top. Lest we forget all the songs we saw climb the charts: In some cases, the tune we loved most set a record arguably because an Anglo artist was a..

Art and Museums in NYC This Week

Advertisement Our guide to new art shows — and some that will be closing soon. ‘DRAWN TO GREATNESS: MASTER DRAWINGS FROM THE THAW COLLECTION’ at the Morgan Library & Museum (through Jan. 7).

North Korea's envoy, Tillerson to attend UN meeting

UNITED NATIONS: North Korea's UN ambassador will attend a Security Council meeting on Friday (Dec 15) where US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will address how to confront the North Korea crisis, diplomats said. Tillerson set off speculation that Washington was seeking a diplomatic opening for negotiations with North Korea when he offered this week to hold talks "without preconditions." The White House and State Department however stressed that the US stance had not changed and insisted North Korea must first show a willingness to halt its nuclear and missile tests. Ambassador Ja Song Nam will speak during his rare appearance at the top UN body, which will hold a ministerial-level meeting following a visit to Pyongyang by senior UN official Jeffrey Feltman. Senior United Nations official Jeffrey Feltman speaks with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong Guk (not pictured) at the People's Palace of Culture in Pyongyang.
