With so many music fandoms at war with each other, the New York Times published a map to put the battles to rest. With the help of YouTube’s geocoded streaming data, the NYT was able to publish U.S. maps of the top 50 artists on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to show where each artists’ YouTube videos were streamed the most.

Keke Palmer has launched her own web series to showcase one of her lesser known talents. The singer and actress has always had a knack for making people laugh, and now she’s apparently ready to get serious about being funny.
In the premiere, Keke arrives for an audition at a Los Angeles casting agency, but the receptionist gives her a hard time because she’s not “top-tier talent.” Lori Beth Denberg of “All That” fame is little help as she only advises Keke to lower the zipper on her top to show a little skin.
The audition gets booked by someone else and Keke gets tossed from the agency’s lobby by a burly security guard while she has a high-energy, profanity-laced freakout. After, a well-meaning fan who doesn’t know Keke catches her in the middle of an identity crisis. Like any aspiring performer with personal issues, Keke decides to follow his advice and start pursuing her new comedy dreams.
The teaser for the next episode has her taking meetings to be in a reality show. But before she even signs on for anything, she’s still just trying figure out why everyone is filming her.

Anyone hoping to see some of Halsey’s music videos will have to make sure their SafeSearch is turned off. That’s because sweeping new restrictions instituted by YouTube are blocking a lot of LGBTQ content from seeing the light of day. Halsey’s videos for “New Americana” and “Ghost” are both invisible in restricted mode now–in addition to a dozen other videos uploaded to her channel. The videos will not appear in search results or on Halsey’s YouTube account when the SafeSearch restrictions are in effect for a user.
