Fame On Fire Releases New
Music Video for “I’m Fine”

Fame On Fire released the official music video for “I’m Fine”, the new single off their 2020 album Levels. The song is about trying to convince yourself and others that you’re doing okay when, clearly, you’re not. The lyrics read: “I’m stuck inside my head. Hoping I can find a new way out, ’cause all I see is red,” a sentiment many of us have felt in the past year. Reflecting the mood and lyrics perfectly, the band performs in a red room covered with the words “I’m Fine” scrawled all over the walls. While we love this song, this video, and this band, we also want to remind everyone that it’s fine and normal to not be fine. For a cathartic thrash, be sure to turn your volume all the way up!

With a score of 9.95 the routine brought home the win for UCLA against Arizona State, a feat that her school calls “#BlackExcellence”. The internet then quickly did what it does best. It blew that shit UP. Michelle Obama, Missy Elliot, Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Common, Janet Jackson, and Gabrielle Union ALL took to Twitter to celebrate the gymnast and her work in celebrating herself and her culture. You guys…it’s like, really good.

Claudia Conway Accuses Her Mother of
Leaking an Underage Topless  Photo

Still from the since deleted video via TikTok

If you aren’t caught up on what Kellyanne Conway has been doing since she left the Trump administration to focus on her family, let’s get you up to speed. Her daughter Claudia has been very public about her strained relationship with her mother and this week, it came to a boiling point. A few days after Claudia posted a video on TikTok, that showed instances of the verbal abuse the teen had previously had alleged at the hands of her mother, a topless photo of the 16-year old appeared on Kellyanne’s Twitter Fleet. The understandably shaken teen took to TikTok, saying that while her mother could have posted the photo accidentally or have been hacked, she thinks her mother may have posted it purposefully. She is heard saying, “I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something.” She continues, “I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it,” and “nobody would ever have any photo like that, ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to fucking jail.” Both the Fleet and statement video have since been deleted but not before netizens took screenshots and recordings.

Claudia’s father, George Conway posted a video statement from Claudia on Twitter today that sent a different message. While both she and Kellyanne have decided to take a break from social media, the teen wanted to address the situation with help from her father. In this updated statement saying she believes her mother was in fact hacked, she continued to say, “My mom and I, we fight like mothers and daughters, and we also love like mothers and daughters and I do love her.”

We don’t know for sure if the photo was posted by accident, out of malice, or was posted by a hacker. What we do know is that Claudia has long been outspoken about her family’s “abuse” and filed for emancipation back in August. Look, we just want what’s best for Claudia Conway, whether that’s working things out with her mom or getting help to move into a healthy environment.
