the end of the tour parents guide

Now streaming on:

Directed by James Ponsoldt (" The Spectacular Now "), "The End of the Tour" might fit well on a double bill with " Amadeus ," another film about a genius and a lesser artist who basks in his aura. Of course, the setting is very different, and the stakes are much lower—"Tour" is a fictionalized account of the week-and-a-half that  Rolling Stone  writer David Lipsky spent following the late David Foster Wallace as he toured to promote his doorstop-sized masterpiece "Infinite Jest"—but it's still the story of a competent but unremarkable creative person observing brilliance up close, feeding on it, reveling in it and resenting it. 

It is also certainly one of cinema's finest explorations of an incredibly specific dynamic—that of the cultural giant and the reporter who fantasizes about one day being as great as his subject, and in the same field. What it definitely  isn't  is a biography of David Foster Wallace, much less a celebration of his work and worldview. Whether that proves a deal breaker, a bonus, or a non-factor for viewers will depend on what they want out of this movie. 

"The End of the Tour" is not really about Wallace ( Jason Segel ), although he's the other major character. It starts with Lipsky ( Jesse Eisenberg ) expressing amazement (but really jealousy) over a rave review of "Infinite Jest" in  New York  magazine, a moment that sparks his obsession with Wallace. It ultimately leaves us thinking about Lipsky's feelings and career trajectory, and whether he feels any guilt about using his brief association with Wallace to further his own career as a writer of books. At this point in his life, Lipsky has had just one volume published, a novel that few people bought and fewer read; after some hesitation, he foists it on Wallace while visiting him at the University of Illinois during a punishingly icy winter. 

The screenplay by Donald Margulies spends most of its time and energy observing a dance. One dancer is Lipsky. He only got  Rolling Stone  to pay for his rock-star style profile of a novelist by agreeing to ask Wallace about the rumors that he uses heroin, and his motivations for doing the story are, to put it mildly, less than noble. The other dancer is Wallace. His fiction and nonfiction were partly concerned with the meaning of the word "authenticity," and how the social rituals and technology and economic structure of modern life created false intimacies that Wallace was determined to reject. 

Theirs is a complex relationship, brief as it is. The most fascinating thing about it is how each side of it seems to be happening in a different storytelling genre. 

Wallace's side of the story is something along the lines of a light drama, perhaps even a romance, about somebody who's been burned over and over and has withdrawn from nearly all relationships save for a handful that he feels he can trust and believe in. Although the small part of the world that cares about writers' private lives thinks of Wallace as a bit of a recluse and perhaps a bit mysterious, it's immediately clear that he's just selective and self-protecting. It's the story of a man learning to trust again (in a love story, it would be "to love again") while worrying that he's going to get burned one more time. Lipsky isn't a Wallace-level intellect, he is very smart, and a good listener, and excellent at getting subjects to open up, even though his demeanor is presumptuous. He doesn't approach Wallace with the appropriate  humility. He instead comes at him from the point-of-view of a writer who believes that he is Wallace's potential equal—somebody as profound as Wallace but not as accomplished or famous, for now. Wallace seems to buy this. Why? Maybe because he's a teacher, and at least a few of his students have real talent, and he doesn't want his ego or insecurity to rule out the possibility that he might cross paths with an artist. Or maybe he's just a decent, optimistic guy.

Lipsky's side of the story often feels like the story of of a con man, or a regular person who uses other people without realizing that's what he's doing. If this were a romantic drama, Lipsky might be a drug user who swears he's gotten clean, or a recovering alcoholic who's not as far along in the process as he claims to be, or a serial cheater who wants everyone to think he's reformed and can be monogamous even though he's constitutionally incapable of that. We keep waiting for the other shoe to drop—for Wallace, who genuinely likes Lipsky even though he's observant enough to spot all the warning signs immediately, to realize that Lipsky cannot have a real friendship with him, and that in general it is a bad idea for a subject to think that he can have that kind of relationship with a reporter. 

Any journalist who's been profiling famous people for any length of time will recognize the dynamic depicted here by Ponsoldt, Eisenberg and Jason Segel, and the honest ones will be made uncomfortable by it. There is something vampiric about features like the one that Lipsky has been assigned to write. There are also elements of theatricality. As Wallace observes early on, the subject is expected to give a performance of sorts, imitating the person he'd like to be perceived as being. The reporter in turn playacts casual curiosity, and tries to push past the facade and find something real, maybe uncomfortable, best of all revelatory. 

Segel and Eisenberg, who as movie stars have been in Wallace's position many times, have an intuitive understanding of how this relationship works, and they illuminate it in the moment, with specificity and clarity. Segel doesn't really look or sound like Wallace (not that that matters; Anthony Hopkins didn't look or sound like Nixon in " Nixon " but was extraordinary) and I didn't necessarily buy him as somebody who could write like Wallace, but he's so smart and genuine and peculiar that we believe he is capable of Wallace's extreme sensitivity and delicate observations—a major accomplishment. Eisenberg is the true star of the movie—an actor of extraordinary originality and also bravery, insofar as he never seems to trouble himself with whether people will hate his characters. He's a great listener but also a rather scary one. His characters often seem to be scrutinizing other characters the way a snake might scrutinize a field mouse. There are many moments in "The End of the Tour" when we dislike Lipsky. There are a few moments where we might find him sickening. 

Is this a story that will fascinate an audience beyond editors, critics, reporters, novelists, and people who care about the problems of such people? I have no idea, though it seems unlikely; the film's incredible specificity would seem to mitigate against being discovered and championed by a wide audience, despite Segel and Eisenberg's presence in the cast. Did the film necessarily  need  to have David Foster Wallace as one of its two main characters? That's a thornier question. We rarely hear any of his prose read aloud (Lipsky reads a passage of "Jest" to his girlfriend, but that's about it) and there is nothing in the film besides some of Wallace's dialogue to indicate that the movie has any interest in illuminating Wallace's fiction, or the obsessions that he worked into them. 

It is very much an Amadeus and Salieri story, and if you are familiar with Amadeus, and the barest outlines of Wallace's life, and the fact that this is based on a nonfiction book by the writer David Lipsky, you know how the story must end: with Lipsky gaining a greater measure of fame via his brief association with Wallace and not being quite sure how to feel about it. The best thing you could say about "The End of the Tour" is that it could've been about any two creative people. That's also the worst thing you could say about it.

Do Some Concert Homework: Listen To Olivia Rodrigo’s Song List Before The Kids Go

Olivia Rodrigo has two albums of great songs, and who knows, she might sing them all at the concert!

We think listening to the setlist is key to preparing your kids for what they’ll hear live.

Parents Guide To Olivia Rodrigo Concert: Does She Swear In Her Songs?

She’s no longer on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series!

While she may have started as a Disney star, she’s left that behind.

High School Musical the musical the series day 1 disney plus Nini in red dress auditioning

Her songs (so far) have delved into relationships, breakups, hardships, and the occasional swear word, including the F-bomb.

Olivia Rodrigo does indeed cuss in some songs while talking to the audience from the stage. She’s been political at concerts as well. She openly supports women’s reproductive rights.

The crowd of adults around you at the concert may also sing along loudly. So keep that in mind.

A casual radio listener may be surprised at a few explicit lyrics including sexual references, so listen to the songs on the set list to be prepared for what’s to come.

Check out this list of Olivia Rodrigo lyrics and quotes before you head to the concert.

What Time Does Olivia Rodrigo Take The Stage? And How Long Is The Olivia Rodrigo Concert?

Rodrigo’s concert is scheduled to begin every night at 7:30 pm. We expect her to go on stage every night around 8:45-9 p.m. and play for about 2 hours.

Her opening acts typically start at 7:30 p.m.

olivia rodrigo parents guide to her concert

Any Other Concerns For Kids At The Olivia Rodrigo Concerts?

We’ve seen suggestive dancing and some hip thrusts. Remember that she’s 21 years old and an adult and acts/sings as such.

There are some suggestive moments throughout the show.

Arrive Early To The Olivia Rodrigo Concert: Guts World Tour (2024)

Check your stadium for opening hours and be prepared to spend some time on your feet waiting for the concert.

Parents Guide To Olivia Rodrigo: What To Bring To The Guts World Tour (2024)

Since you’ll be there for a long time- and maybe even longer in the parking lot afterward!- go ahead and use this list to prep what to take to the concert.

Bring and Trade Friendship Bracelets: Parents Guide to One Night At A Time Concert

Are people trading friendship bracelets at the Olivia Rodrigo concerts? We expect they will be.

Fans make bracelets and trade them to create and foster community before the shows.

The friendship bracelet thing all started ( re-started- us olds know they’ve been around for a long time! ) with Taylor’s concerts, and we’ve seen it continue with Pink, the JoBros, and Morgan Wallen.

It’s highly likely this trend will keep going on through the concert season next summer.

Most of these trades happen in the parking lot before the show starts, but we’ve seen many people trading with fellow fans in their seat sections.

the end of the tour parents guide

Some create bracelets with full song lyrics, and some create them with the songs or album titles. Some of them are even more creative and niche- we’ve seen some wild ones!

But this is a friendly community activity that will help your kiddo feel connected to other fans at the concert.

Don’t be afraid to ask to trade with others or to gift a bracelet to someone!

To avoid any issue with security and trying to bring in a bag of bracelets, go ahead and plan to wear them when you walk in. After that, walking up and exchanging with a fellow fan will be a simple process!

You can  buy a friendship bracelet-making kit  here.

Stadium Bag Policies

Each location will have a different bag policy. Some require TOTALLY clear bags only (NFL stadiums).

So check with your location before assuming your normal purse will work.

Size matters!

Ensure you measure your bag before you attempt to bring it in, as some stadiums will refuse entry to larger bags.

olivia rodrigo concert guide

List of Things To Bring to The Olivia Rodrigo Concert: Guts World Tour (2024)

  • portable battery for your phone  (plus phone cord!) Maybe consider multiple chargers depending on how long you’ll be at the stadium
  • empty water bottle (can fill inside the stadium)
  • completely clear bag  if an NFL Stadium (12 x 6 x 12 is usually the largest size allowed)
  • snacks for the car after the concert. You’ll be waiting for up to 3 hours in the parking lot, so be prepared with some post-Beyonce snacks.
  • poncho or rain gear
  • Concert Earplugs . We’ve seen a lot of younger kids really miserable because the concert is just too loud for them. Consider bringing earplugs along, just in case.
  • sunglasses for outdoor concerts
  • hand sanitizer (always!)
  • Something to do while waiting for the concert to start that’s NOT your phone. Cards or a book might help pass the time and save that phone battery.

Items Not Allowed At The Olivia Rodrigo Concert (2024)

  • camera bags
  • diaper bags
  • seat cushions (unless medically necessary)

Parents Guide To Olivia Rodrigo: Pack Snacks In The Car For Post-Concert

The best tip we’ve seen for this guide to Olivia Rodrigo Concerts (2024) is to pack your patience after the tour and a snack bag for the parking lot waiting.

There have been reports of sitting in traffic for 1-3 hours post-concerts to leave the parking lot. If that happens to you, you’ll appreciate planning with a small cooler of snacks for the wait.

What To Wear To Olivia Rodrigo Guts World Tour: Comfortable Shoes

Plenty of concertgoers wear jeans and tees for the Olivia Rodrigo Concert.

But… with the whole Taylor Swift and Beyonce dress-to-impress phenomenon, we’ve seen quite a few pictures and videos on TikTok where ladies are dressing up! We expect Olivia’s fans to go all out as well.

So go ahead and dress up with your kids and have fun feeling young!

Think of this as an event, and not just a musical concert. And go all out.

Our number one suggestion is to dress in something you are comfortable wearing for a long time. Because you will be at this experience for at least 3 hours, but it is potentially an all-day event.

But make sure whatever you do, you wear comfortable shoes to the concert.

We cannot stress enough how much you will be on your feet when they go on stage and you will wish you left those high heels or unbroken boots at home!

So comfortable shoes are a MUST.

We know, we know, the cute cowboy boots with the heel are tempting. Make sure your boots are NOT new and that they don’t have too much of a heel.

If you don’t, you and your kiddo may regret that choice by the night’s end!

Here are a few Olivia Rodrigo shirts you can score off Amazon:

Make A Plan To Get Ready Before The Show: Parents Guide To The Guts Tour

Your hotel room may not be ready, but you’ll want to get dressed for the show.

What’s a young Olivia Rodrigo fan to do?

First, check with your hotel. Many are opening ballrooms or conference rooms for pre-concert prep if the rooms are unavailable.

We’ve seen lobbies full of concertgoers getting their glam on- so you will not be alone if that’s what you have to do.

But you might also want to plan on arriving a day earlier OR even consider what you can do in the car. This may include bringing portable car chargers for your straighteners or curling wands.

Merchandise Purchases

Merch is a VERY big deal for The Guts World Tour.

If your child is interested in the most popular items, you’ll want to arrive early. Like stupid early.

As early as the parking lot opens early so you can get in line right away.

Items DO sell out, and the lines will get long.

the end of the tour parents guide

The Olivia Rodrigo Concert (2024) Merchandise Tip: Once Inside the Stadium, GO UP.

Most people will stop at the first merch tent, truck, or line they see.

The smartest concertgoers will have read this Olivia Rodrigo Tour guide and know that more merch is being sold on the higher concourses.

Go ahead and take that elevator early and head to a higher floor. There usually are more merchandise options up there- and most have ZERO lines.

You can also pop out during a song to hit the merchandise lines- a great plan for parents who feel comfortable leaving their older teens alone for a bit.

Loud Noises And Explosion Warning: Fireworks and Flashing Lights At The Guts World Tour.

For sensitive kiddos, please be aware that there may be pyrotechnic moments and loud noises during the concert.

We put earplugs on the list of things to take for a reason!- HUGE thing to take away from this parents guide to the Olivia Rodrigo concert.

olivia rodrigo parents guide to her concert

Stand For As Much Of The Olivia Rodrigo Guts World Tour As Possible: Parents Take Note!

The crowd will stand for the entire concert. These fans are PASSIONATE about Rodrigo and won’t miss a second of this gal on stage.

If you have a shorter child going with you, be prepared for them to be blocked or need to be held to see the stage or screens.

Olivia Rodrigo fans will not sit for the performance (at least not for most of it). You might make out a bit better if you have an aisle seat, but those in the middle of the row could be blocked from the view.

Remember when we said to dress comfortably? This is why.

When Can You Pee During Olivia Rodrigo Concerts: Parents Guide To The Guts World Tour

This might be the most important part of the guide to the Olivia Rodrigo Concert.

The concert is about 95 minutes long, so you might be able to hang in there until the end! There is not an intermission in this show.

Likely, you’ll have to pick a song and sacrifice it for the potty run.

We think it’s hard to decide which song is best to leave for, so check out the setlist and pick one you feel you can miss!

Parents Guide To Olivia Rodrigo Concert (2024) Final Tips

Is an Olivia Rodrigo concert appropriate for kids?

She does get a bit spicy on stage and is happy to cuss and talk politics.

If you are not comfortable letting your youngest fans hear that, you may not want to allow them a seat at The Guts World Tour.

But can your kids handle one of his concerts?

For the most part, we’d say yes, kids ages 13 and up could attend an Olivia Rodrigo concert. If you bring younger kids, bring ear protection and prep them for lines, standing, and loud noises.

Also, be aware that big concerts like this are getting a reputation for drunken behavior from the crowd. That could be a reason for some younger kids to wait a few more years.

Pack your patience, and leave the negativity at home.

The Olivia Rodrigo fans are fanatical about their love of this singer-songwriter. And as we’ve noted many times… It’s BIG.

This means many people are trying to enjoy the same great band and singer. Most stadiums are set up to handle large crowds, but keep an eye and ear out for security instructions during the event.

And know that you won’t get home quickly (even if you plan on taking public transportation- the trains and buses are running, but tons of people will use the same modes).

Talk with your kids in advance so they know what to expect. We’d also suggest watching some videos (TikTok and Instagram Reels are great bite-sized moments for this).

We hope this parents guide to the Olivia Rodrigo Concert: Guts World Tour (2024) helps with your concert plans!

‘Furiosa’ ending explained: how does it connect to ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’?

Spoilers ahead

Furiosa

Anya Taylor-Joy leads the fifth instalment in the Mad Max franchise, Furiosa .

Directed by George Miller, Furiosa serves as a prequel to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road and charts the origins of the character, who was originally played by Charlize Theron.

  • READ MORE:  ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’ review: another mighty, petrol-soaked masterpiece

Other cast members in the prequel include Chris Hemsworth , Alyla Browne, Tom Burke, Lachy Hulme, Nathan Jones, and Josh Helman.

Along with directing Furiosa , Miller has co-written the story with his former Fury Road collaborator Nico Lathouris.

What happens at the end of Furiosa?

Furiosa

After tracking down Dementus (Chris Hemsworth) following the 40-day wasteland war, Furiosa (Anya Taylor-Joy) confronts him and tries to make him remember who she is.

When he eventually does remember that she is the girl he kidnapped years prior, Dementus is impressed and tells her he’s been waiting for someone worthy of him. “Do this right, and you become me,” he remarks while on his knees, before adding: “The question is, do you have it in you to make it epic?”

Recommended

Through a narrator, we discover Furiosa doesn’t actually kill Dementus straight away, as described in various rumours and fables. Instead, we see Dementus is slowly rotting away at the top of the Citadel, with a tree growing out of his flesh. This tree was planted by Furiosa using the seed her mother gave her as a child. In a shot which mirrors the opening scene, we then see Furiosa taking a fruit from the tree growing from Dementus.

In the final scene, Furiosa is seen smuggling Immortan Joe’s wives out of the Citadel in a war rig, setting up events directly into Mad Max: Fury Road . This is emphasised over the closing credits, as snippets of scenes from Fury Road play out.

Does the film have a post-credits scene?

A very brief one. At the end of the credits, following the footage from Mad Max: Fury Road , a short clip shows a bobblehead from Nux’s (Nicholas Hoult) car wobbling – in what’s likely just a small easter egg for fans of the original.

If you’re fortunate enough to be attending one of the three upcoming Beyoncé concerts at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium (Sept. 1, 2 and 4), best not to disappoint Queen Bey and come unprepared. So don your favorite silver outfit (see “Virgo Season”) and get to know some of Bey’s musical heroes, on-stage performers, behind-the-scenes architects and key phrases that have made the Renaissance tour one of the most acclaimed and lucrative in history. SoCal, time to get your fork and your spoon ...

Alexander McQueen The late fashion designer was such a visionary of futurist-Edwardian dark glamour that the Met Museum exhibited his couture work. His vision lives on in a sequined chrome corset/boots/gloves combo that his atelier designed for Beyoncé, along with garments for her backup dancers and live band.

Andre Jose Marshall II and Amari Marshall Andre was the brother of Amari, who is a lead dancer on Beyoncé’s tour. After Andre died in June at the age of 32, Beyoncé dedicated “My Power” to him at a stop in Hamburg, Germany.

Andrew Makadsi Makadsi operates as creative director for Parkwood Entertainment, and earned an Emmy nomination in 2019 for outstanding production design for his work on Beyoncé’s concert documentary “Homecoming.” He is credited with “additional creative direction” on the Renaissance tour.

“Badu, Badu, Badu, Badu” The snub that launched a thousand Lizzo think pieces. During the live remix of “ Break My Soul ,” Beyoncé shouts out artists that have influenced or inspired her over her career. She normally includes Lizzo, but after former dancers for the “About Damn Time” singer filed a suit alleging sexual harassment , Beyoncé did a version where she put soul siren Erykah Badu’s name on loop. (Lizzo returned to the list on later shows).

Blue Ivy Carter

Blue Ivy Carter Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 11-year-old daughter — and a fan-favorite dancer on the Renaissance tour.

Carlos Basquiat A ballroom dancer from the House of Basquiat on HBO’s competition show “Legendary,” and one of the “dolls” dancing with Beyoncé on tour.

Jean-Michel Basquiat The late New York artist, beloved by Bey and Jay-Z, made a controversial cameo with the two in a Tiffany ad that re-did an unseen painting of his in the firm’s trademark blue. Beyoncé cheekily referenced him again on “ I’m That Girl ,” where she sings she’s “beating down the block knocking Basquiats off the wall.”

David Koma The Georgian former creative director of Mugler designed the electric-chartreuse tableau for Bey’s 2022 Oscars performance (sadly upstaged by the Slap). On the “Renaissance” tour, he’s behind a shimmery, prismatic coat and dress.

Three women in an R&B singing group wearing black dresses

Destiny’s Child The bestselling girl group whose most famous lineup featured Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Beyoncé opens her set with their 2001 song “ Dangerously in Love ,” which was repurposed for Bey’s own album of the same title in 2003.

Donna Summers

Donna Summer The resplendent ‘70s disco queen provided the floor-filling sample material for “ Summer Renaissance ,” but Summer’s vision for Black and queer club music informed the whole “Renaissance” project, right down to the Studio 54-era crystal horse Bey rides.

“Drunk in Love” Beyoncé’s euphoric collaboration with Jay-Z, released in 2013. The song has been absent for the majority of the tour, save for opening night in Stockholm and a mid-August date in Atlanta. Will it find a place in the SoFi set list?

“Everybody on mute” When Beyoncé sings the line during her performance of “Energy,” she expects the audience to follow her direction and refrain from making a sound. Don’t get yelled at for breaking the silence!

“Get your fork and your spoon” For everyone wondering where the “Renaissance” music videos are hiding, during the show Bey projects a brief text message stating, with delightfully profane brevity, that you will eat when she tells you to.

Grace Jones One of Beyoncé’s formative ‘70s and ‘80s influences, Jones is an icon of music, fashion, film and vibes across decades (and just performed at WeHo pride this year). Jones famously turned down just about every contemporary collaboration offered to her, but finally caved to join Bey on “ Move .” -AB

Honey Balenciaga

Honey Balenciaga A ballroom dancer on the tour who stole the show at opening night in Stockholm.

Honey Dijon A modern master of house and club music and a groundbreaking Black trans artist, Bey tapped her for production and writing on “Cozy” and “Alien Superstar.”

Jay-Z Beyonce’s billionaire husband, and one of the greatest rappers the world has seen. He’s been in attendance for most of the tour — and was spotted next to Megan thee Stallion in Paris — and will probably pop up for the L.A. run, given he and his wife just spent $200 million on a Malibu mansion.

Jill Scott “Jilly from Philly,” as Beyoncé lovingly referred to her on the remix to “Break My Soul.” When Scott stopped by the tour’s Philadelphia show, the R&B singer’s admiration for Beyoncé was indescribable: “I didn’t get a chance to see Michael Jackson, I didn’t get a chance to see James Brown, I didn’t get a chance to see Tina Turner, but I got a chance to see Beyoncè tonight,” she said of the experience.

KENDRICK LAMAR

Kendrick Lamar Compton-born superstar rapper who remixed Beyoncé’s “ America Has a Problem ” (and previously featured on “Nile” and “Freedom.”) Although he hasn’t popped out on the tour, Beyoncé danced over a recording to his verse since it dropped in May.

Kevin JZ Prodigy The Philly-born ballroom commentator whose voice is sampled at the start of Beyoncé’s “Pure/Honey.” He’s also narrated much of the Renaissance tour.

KNTY4NEWS One of the funniest bits in the “Renaissance” live show finds Bey broadcasting from behind a TV news desk with, shall we say, NSFW call letters.

Les Twins Laurent and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois are two outrageously limber, identical twin French dancers and choreographers who flank Bey during much of her live show.

Madonna

Madonna Beyoncé sampled Madonna’s “Vogue” for “Break My Soul (The Queens Remix).” Beyoncé gave the pop legend a shout-out at her New Jersey stop, and posed with her and her daughters after the show.

Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly In 2019, Beyoncé covered R&B stalwart Maze’s sparkling “ Before I Let Go ,” and sang it live for the first time in Stockholm on opening night.

Megan Thee Stallion Houston-born rapper who collaborated (and won a Grammy) with Beyoncé on “ Savage ” in 2020.

Michael Jackson Beyoncé has mixed “Break My Soul” with the Jacksons’ “ Shake Your Body ,” and blended “ Love on Top ” with the Jackson 5’s “ I Want You Back .”

Mugler by Casey Cadwallader Cadwallader, the creative director for Mugler, designed the perilous-looking metal bustier Bey wore for much of “Renaissance’s” promo imagery.

Nina Simone

Nina Simone An American jazz and civil rights titan whose uncompromising virtuosity, political fury and tender melancholy informs Beyoncé’s whole career, and who gets a well-deserved “Break My Soul” name-drop.

Reneigh The Beyhive decided that the crystal horse from “Renaissance’s” cover needed a name, and lo and behold, she is now Reneigh.

Rose Royce L.A.-based disco and funk band who shined in the 1970s. Mary J. Blige had a signature hit in 1994 with a cover of the group’s “ I’m Going Down ,” and Beyoncé has been performing it on the Renaissance tour.

Shiona Turini Turini has helped put together Bey’s globe-trotting wardrobe alongside co-stylists Julia Starr-Jamois, Karen Langley and KJ Moody.

“ Thique ” “Renaissance” track added to the show’s set list in Atlanta for the first time since opening night.

Tina Turner

Tina Turner Beyoncé pays nightly tribute to the late “Queen of Rock & Roll” by covering one of her signature songs, “River Deep, Mountain High.”

Uncle Johnny Technically Tina Knowles’ nephew, this beloved family figure introduced a teen Beyoncé to house music. She’s called him “the most fabulous gay man I have ever met, who helped raise me and my sister.”

Virgo Season Sorry Leos, your time is up, and it is now the era of perfectionist Virgos like Bey to shine. She wrote a whole song about it — “ Virgo’s Groove ” — and is asking fans to come bedecked in silver for the whole season of shows.

(Gray News) - Nicki Minaj was arrested in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport while on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour, according to reports.

The ‘Super Bass’ rapper appeared to be detained after she posted a video, lasting over three minutes, discussing her arrest with an Amsterdam police officer.

In the video, one official said that they wanted to take the rapper into custody for “carrying drugs.”

“I’m not going in there. I need a lawyer present,” the rapper replied.

The officer continued, “We’ll get (you to) the next show.”

Minaj replied, “So, I’m under arrest. For what?”

Minaj then posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that the officers found “weed” and that they took her bags “without consent.” She also admitted there was marijuana but that it belonged to her security staff.

Minaj is scheduled to perform at the Co-op Live arena in Manchester Saturday night, NBC News reported.

Parents need to know that The End of the F***ing World is a dark dramedy based on Charles Forsman's 2013 graphic novel. It centers on two emotionally isolated teens, James and Alyssa (Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden), who connect and run away together, all while one plots the other's murder. While there's…

Positive Messages

A mixed bag: Romanticizes the notion of teen angst and rebellion by putting James and Alyssa in potentially dangerous situations with little realistic consequence, but also explores complex emotional state of adolescence and importance of relating to people in meaningful ways. Even though both characters struggle with psychological troubles, they find some relief and camaraderie in each other's company.

Positive Role Models

Neither James nor Alyssa could be considered a positive role model, given their earnest disregard for basic human decency at times, but each becomes what the other needs most as the story progresses. Adults in their lives tend to disappoint them even when they try to be involved. In some cases, those adults are the reason for the teens' unhappiness.

Violence & Scariness

As James fantasizes about killing Alyssa, viewers see it play out in scenes that flash between reality and the bloody act he ponders. He also talks about his murderous desires and describes killings of animals he's done in the past, with victims shown. In one scene he punches his dad; in another he burns his hand in a fry vat. An actual murder occurs and it is bloody. James is sexually molested by an older man in a restroom, while Alyssa is nearly raped.

Sex, Romance & Nudity

Brief shots of James masturbating. Alyssa is obsessed with sex to a degree that physical acts often come up in conversation. James calls her a nymphomaniac, and she occasionally asks for him to perform oral sex and other acts on her. She attempts oral sex on James but he does not respond. The teens also watch porn in a hotel room but are detached from the experience. Alyssa initiates sex with a stranger but does not complete the act.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The End of the F***ing World is a dark dramedy based on Charles Forsman's 2013 graphic novel. It centers on two emotionally isolated teens, James and Alyssa (Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden), who connect and run away together, all while one plots the other's murder. While there's little violence in real time, James' fantasies play out in brief clips that show Alyssa stabbed and bleeding, and he often lurks near her with a knife poised. Language is also an issue; Alyssa in particular uses words like "f--k," "s--t," "c--t," and "d--khead" regularly. The teens also often talk about sex, so expect mention of masturbation, oral sex (she calls it "eating a p---y"), and other physical acts, but little is actually shown. The teens' rebelliousness (and James' infatuation with killing in particular) is glorified rather than vilified, with surprisingly comic results. This show is iffy for most teens, but if you watch with yours, use its themes to talk about bullying and emotional health.

Based on 23 parent reviews

Funny if you think killing your dog or cat is okay.

What's the story.

Self-described teen psychopath James (Alex Lawther) and his rebellious classmate Alyssa (Jessica Barden) take off on an impromptu cross-country trip to escape their dull lives and to find Alyssa's dad in THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD. While the novelty of their adventure quickly wears off, the duo determines to see it through, taking drastic and often illegal steps to keep on the move. As Alyssa reflects on events of her past that brought her to this point, James' focus remains on the future and his secret plan for Alyssa's eventual murder.

Is It Any Good?

This dark series casts a loner teen as a methodical would-be killer of his irksome and fiery companion, but that does surprisingly little to distract from its comedic effect. While it's difficult to say that James and Alyssa are likable characters, they're almost instantly sympathetic, despite (or perhaps because of?) their utter contempt for what they consider their meaningless lives and the people in them. The show's narrative style gives viewers insight into both teens' innermost feelings, which is a good thing because both are people of few words. By piecing together what they say, what they think, and what they recall in flashback scenes, viewers slowly develop a full sense of these two complex teens and, more importantly, what draws them to each other.

The End of the F***ing World , which is based on Charles Forsman's 2013 graphic novel, is much more than a Thelma and Louise story for the teen set. In fact, given the often mature content, its appropriateness for teens is questionable at best. It's a masterfully calculated and morbid dysfunctional love story in which you find yourself heavily -- and somewhat guiltily, given the contemptible nature of the star-crossed lovers -- invested in surprisingly little time. If the weighty angst, pervasive language, and murder-in-the-making elements aren't too much for your teen, the series also raises some important topics you can discuss afterward, including emotional wellness and isolation, bullying, and healthy ways of dealing with stress.

Talk to Your Kids About ...

Families can talk about how The End of the F***ing World portrays teens and their struggles . Are James and Alyssa believable characters in their feelings about their families and lives? Do they attempt to deal with what weighs on their minds, or is their attitude one of escape instead? What are some more constructive ways of coping?

What role do adults have in this story? What do you think adults' roles in teens' lives should be? Teens: Are the adults in your life privy to your moods and feelings? If not, to whom do you turn when you have to deal with something difficult?

Would you describe James and Alyssa as particularly courageous ? Why or why not? What positive attributes does each have? Are they redeemable characters?
