Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, and DJ Calvin Harris To Perform At BACARDI Triangle Event

[Thursday 23rd OCTOBER 2014]: Ahead of her performance at BACARDI Triangle, an exclusive music event on a private island in the Bermuda Triangle, Ellie Goulding takes time out of her busy schedule to discuss her obsession with David Attenborough and her dream to visit the Galapagos Islands.

Ellie will be performing alongside Grammy award-winning DJ Calvin Harris and hip hop star Kendrick Lamar. She will also be treating fans to a sneak peak of her new single ‘Outside’ alongside Calvin. The slowly sizzling electro-pop song reunites Harris and Goulding after the dynamic duo’s 2012 hit “I Need Your Love,” taken from Goulding’s album Halcyon.

Harris’s new album Motion is due out November 4th and features a star-studded tracklist with appearances from Gwen Stefani, Big Sean, Tinashe, John Newman, and HAIM. It will be Harris’ first album since 2012’s 18 Months and he will be hitting the road in support of its release — if he survives his Halloween show in the Bermuda Triangle.

The Halloween-themed event, which will involve three charter jets, flying in from three cities around the world, carrying three superstar artists will take place over three action-packed nights.

The weekend will culminate with guests being whisked to a private Caribbean island where a world-class line-up awaits.

Black-Ish Star Anthony Anderson Featured On the Cover Of EMMY Magazine October Issue

Anthony Anderson, star and executive producer of the new ABC fall comedy series black-ish, appears on the cover of award-winning emmy® magazine, the Television Academy’s “must read” journal which hits newsstands today.
The actor is suave in a white-on-white Dolce & Gabbana linen suit, silk pointed tie and Ted Baker London shirt. 
For exclusive photos and video of behind-the-scenes moments from Anderson’s photo shoot, visit TelevisionAcademy.com, the Academy’s award-winning website.
The narrative behind ABC’s new comedy black-ish hits close to home for the comedian, who portrays a successful father struggling to make sure his privileged children remember where they’ve come from.
“I was dealing with my son coming home and saying he doesn’t feel black,” Anderson recalls. “
At the tail end of a heart-to-heart conversation about my unprivileged struggle growing up in Compton, California, versus my son’s privileged struggle growing up in the Valley and knowing nothing but private school, he said, ‘Dad, for my birthday, I want a bar mitzvah.’” Looking back, the actor is able to laugh at the memory, but at the time he responded, “Oh, so you really aren’tblack.’”
black-ish “has a real point of view,” shares Laurence Fishburne, who both executive-produces the series and plays Anderson’s old-school dad. “And although it appears to be a point of view about race, it’s really about class, success and generational differences more than anything else.” Adds writer-producer Kenya Barris, “That’s really what I wanted to say with this show, that we are the sum of all our parts, and we should acknowledge that.”
All that said, black-ish “…is not indicative of just one culture and one race of people,” Anderson concludes. “It’s inclusive. Everybody’s dealing with a little ‘ish’ in their lives.”

She explained why the freshman comedy works well with longtime hit "Modern Family." Janet and the "Blackish" star discussed the evolution of what it means to be black, and the extent to which modern-day Americans of all walks adopt pieces of other people's cultures. They also chatted about why it's time to openly discuss race, even if it proves uncomfortable.
