P!NK? SHE'S KIND OF TRASHY AND THE LOOKS ARE GONE BUT WE STILL LIKE HER -- "JUST LIKE A PILL" WAS A GREAT SONG -- TOO BAD IT WAS HER LAST GREAT SONG AND IT'S NEARLY TWO DECADES OLD.
LIFE HASN'T BEEN GOOD FOR P!NK CAREER WISE. IN FACT, YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TEN SINGLES AND FOR YEARS TO FIND A HIT SINGLE FOR PINK ("JUST LIKE FIRE" WHICH REACHED NUMBER TEN).
SHE RELEASED HER LAST ALBUM IN 2019 AND IT SOLD . . . 95,000 COPIES IN THE U.S. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS TO POP MUSIC FEMALES AS THEY AGE, THE AUDIENCE GROWS BORED WITH THEM.
SHE'S IN THE NEWS RIGHT NOW FOR LAUGHING THAT SHE SOLD OUT THE TULSA, O.K. VENUE DONALD TRUMP WAS AT ON SATURDAY. DONALD DIDN'T FILL THE VENUE. PINK WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT SHE DID. BACK IN 2018. WHEN SHE STILL HAD SOMEWHAT OF A CAREER. SHE WAS COMING OFF HER 2017 ALBUM WHICH MANAGED TO SELL OVER 600,000 COPIES -- AGAIN, SHE STILL HAD A CAREER THEN. ALSO TRUE, THE EVENT WASN'T ABOUT HER -- THOUGH SHE TENDS TO FORGET THAT. SHE WAS ONE OF TEN CONCERTS -- THEY CALLED IN "10 ON 10" -- THAT WERE CELEBRATING THE TULSA VENUES TENTH ANNIVERSARY. WHEN SHE RETURNED, MONTHS LATER, FOR A SECOND SHOW, SHE DID NOT SELL OUT THE VENUE.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
SHE MADE IT MATTER WITH HER STUPID TWEET -- SHE REALLY IS THE GUTTER TRASH WITHOUT AN EDUCATION.
DONALD TRUMP SHOULD NOT BE HOLDING RALLIES. WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC. INSTEAD OF PULLING OUT HER SCRAPBOOKS AND ACTING LIKE NORMA DESMOND, SHE SHOULD BE CALLING OUT DONALD FOR PUTTING PEOPLE'S LIVES AT RISK.
P!NK, YOU HAD A GREAT CAREER, NEARLY 20 YEARS AGO. NOW TAKE YOUR HAGGERED AND SAGGY MIND OFF THE MAINSTAGE, YOU'RE DONE.
Where are the jobs? In the global economy, that's a question for everyone but it's especially a question in Iraq where you graduate from a university only to find . . . no jobs. This is one of the realities that put protesters in the street last fall.
Months later -- three months shy of a year -- nothing has been done.
And now the economy is in ever more jeopardy. AFP reports:
Iraq's economy could reach irreversible lows within the next year unless urgent reform measures are adopted, its finance minister warned in an exclusive interview with AFP on Monday.
"Reform is inevitable," said Ali Allawi, who has been tasked with stabilising Iraq's economy following an oil price crash that saw state revenues slashed by half.
"If we do not amend the situation throughout the next year, we may face shocks we cannot fix."
Iraq's economy is projected to shrink by 10% in 2020 following a dramatic drop in oil prices from over $50 per barrel to about $20.
Opec's second-biggest oil producer relies almost exclusively on its crude exports to fund its budget, which includes a bloated public sector and broad state subsidies.
We'll note this thread. Noor is a doctor who graduated last year:
Meanwhile, more than 2000 newly trained medics have been asked to volunteer their services until a state budget is approved for their labour. This at a time when infections among frontline doctors are rising fast.
And the protest over the lack of jobs continues. NRT Tweets:
The lack of jobs is only one of the many problems facing Iraq currently. Among other problems? Turkey is terrorizing the people of Iraq in the north. They are bombing Iraq, they have sent soldiers on the ground into Iraq.
