Chinese-Canadian singer and actor Kris Wu, a huge star in China, was sentenced to 13 years in prison, including for rape, according to a ruling on Friday, a case that had caused a scandal in the country.
 
The 32-year-old artist was sentenced to “11 years and six months of imprisonment for rape”, according to the judgment of the Chaoyang District Court in Beijing, which added that he “was also sentenced to one year and 10 months of imprisonment for the crime of gathering people to commit adultery”. At the end of his sentence, he will be deported from China, the ruling also said.
 
Chinese-Canadian, Kris Wu is an ex-member of the Chinese-South Korean group EXO. He had left the group in 2014 to embark on a solo career as an actor, singer and model. Last year, he was accused by a 19-year-old Chinese student of raping her during a date when she was 17.
 
Following the outcry, brands such as Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, L’Oreal and Porsche, of which he was an ambassador, suspended their partnership with the singer. Subsequently, other victims had testified online to accuse Mr. Wu’s team of predatory behavior, including inviting them to drunken karaoke parties.
 
These accusations sparked the beginning of the #Metoo movement in China, but it has since stagnated. Fearing an uncontrolled mass movement, the censors controlling the internet had quickly blocked on social networks the hashtags and keywords relating to cases of sexual harassment.

Before Tik Tok who democratized the fashion of the playback on the networks, the specialist was Keenan Cahill. The Internet star died this Thursday in a Chicago hospital when he was only 27 years old.
 
He accumulated millions of views on his YouTube channel when he was only 15 years old. Keenan Cahill, who became successful in the very early 2010s, died on Thursday, a few days after an open-heart surgery that he himself had announced on Instagram.

The Chicago native was receiving frequent treatment and undergoing several surgeries. The family reported “complications” during the last surgery.

A performance that allowed him to collaborate with several artists for his videos. We note Jennifer Aniston, Flo Rida, Cody Simpson, Justin Bieber, 50 Cent or even Doc Gynéco.

American singer Anita Pointer, who enjoyed success in the 1970s and 1980s with her sisters in the rhythm and blues group Pointer Sisters, died Saturday at the age of 74 of cancer, her agent announced. “I am sad to announce that my Grammy-winning client Anita Pointer has passed away after a heroic battle with cancer,” Roger Neal said on Instagram.
  
She died at her home in Los Angeles surrounded by her family, he told CNN. Her loved ones spoke in a statement, “Despite our deep sadness at the loss of Anita, we are comforted to know she is now with her daughter Jada and sisters June and Bonnie, and at peace.”
 
The group, originating from Oakland, California, was originally formed by Anita and her sisters June (deceased in April 2006), Bonnie (deceased in June 2020) and Ruth. They had started singing in the church where their father was a pastor in Oakland.
 
The Pointer Sisters, initially influenced by jazz, be-bop and gospel, released their first album in 1973 and won three Grammy Awards during their career. They were invited to Nashville’s legendary Grand Ole Opry, a first for black artists.
 
Bonnie launched her solo career in 1977, but that didn’t stop her sisters from having more hits in the 1980s.

The American drummer Fred White, of the funk group Earth, Wind & Fire died at the age of 67, announced Monday his brother and a former member of the musical group.
  
Born in 1955 in Chicago (Illinois, north), White had started playing drums at a young age. During his career, he won six Grammy Awards with the legendary funk band formed in 1969 by his brother, Maurice White, who died in 2016. “Our family is saddened today by the loss of an incredible and talented family member,” wrote another of his brothers, Verdine White, in a post on Instagram, recalling that he had “gold records from the age of 16…!”
  
Earth, Wind & Fire quickly rose to prominence in the 1970s, becoming one of the first to break down racial taboos in pop music, and enjoyed tremendous success in both the white and African-American communities. In 1979, the group was the first African-American band to perform to a sold-out crowd at New York’s prestigious Madison Square Garden.
  
On the band’s official Instagram page, a video was posted of White performing a drum solo at a 1979 concert in Germany accompanied by the message “Rest in Love.” He went on to work with other artists, including soul singer Deniece Williams.
  
White, as a member of Earth, Wind & Fire, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
The band was known not only for its songs, but also for its high-energy shows, with a strong presence of horns and a kalimba, an African percussion instrument made of metal flakes.
   
Without ever having completely left the scene, the group experienced a resurgence of notoriety after the election of President Barack Obama, who invited them to be among the first artists to perform after he entered the White House in 2009.
