Changes to Crop Over Festival

Changes will likely be made to the Crop Over Fes­ti­val, accord­ing to CEO of the National Cul­tural Foun­da­tion, Cranston Browne.

Each year, fol­low­ing the Crop Over Fes­ti­val, stake­hold­ers gather together to review the sea­son and come up with ideas in an attempt to bet­ter the expe­ri­ence in the future. Here are a few of this year’s pro­posed changes:
- junior calyp­so­ni­ans under 18 may be barred from the Pic-​O-​De-​Crop, Sweet Soca and Party Monarch com­pe­ti­tions
- artistes per­form­ing solo in any given com­pe­ti­tion may not also be a part of a duet within the same com­pe­ti­tion
- artistes must present dif­fer­ent and orig­i­nal songs for each com­pe­ti­tion
- Pic-​O-​De-​Crop Finals and the start of the Fore­day Morn­ing Jam remain on sep­a­rate days, allow­ing the jump to start (and end) ear­lier
- a review of judg­ing cri­te­ria is also on the table


Rihanna not pleased with CBS

riri risponse

After being cut from last week’s pre­mier of Thurs­day Night’s Foot­ball, Rihanna has become fum­ing mad at CBS for try­ing to ‘get back in her good books’ by attempt­ing to fit her back into the lineup. She made her feel­ings clear as she took to twit­ter in Rihanna style, of course exple­tives included.

CBS has responded by cut­ting her alto­gether and opt­ing for “newly cre­ated ‘Thurs­day Night Foot­ball’ theme music.”

All of which came about after the sus­pen­sion of the Bal­ti­more Ravens star Ray Rice, due to domes­tic vio­lecne mat­ters. The sta­tion felt that Rihanna’s his­tory of domes­tic vio­lence war­rented such actions… Ok, so you are pun­ish­ing Rihanna for hav­ing been abused????
