Petition: Fans launch petition to switch a Confederate Monument to one of Missy Elliott In Her Hometown

Residents in Missy Elliott’s home town of Portsmouth, Virginia, don’t just want a Confederate monument to be taken down—they want it to be replaced with one of the hip-hop icon.The change.org petition—addressed to the city’s mayor, vice mayor and members of city council, reads
Before she was “Missy Misdemeanor” she was Melissa Arnette Elliott, born on July 1, 1971 in Portsmouth, Virginia. Hailing from humble beginnings as the only child of a power company dispatcher and a welder at Portsmouth’s lauded naval shipyard, she rose to become a platinum recording artist with over 30-million albums sold. All this without even once owning a slave.

Getting this statue put up will be a lot of work and you may ask yourself is it worth it? I say yes and ask you to join me in letting us work it. Together we can put white supremacy down, flip it and reverse it. So far, it’s been signed by about 25,000 people. You can go here to read the whole thing.

Justice League Star Henry Cavill, Shares Advice For Life, Including His Thoughts On Working Out And Diet

As a part of being the cover star of Men’s Health UK this month, Cavill shared some of his advice for life, including his thoughts on working out and diet.One of the ways he keeps himself motivated at the gym is that when he works out he wants to do more than just sweat. He wants a reason for doing what he’s doing other than just that he has to look good on camera.

“I like going to the gym, I do. But if I’m going to be sweating and breathing hard, I’d far prefer to be doing it while learning a skill, rather than just for the sake of sweating and breathing hard.”
As for what kind of diet he maintains, Cavill isn’t averse to going on a little cheating binge…

“My perspective has changed somewhat on the things that I want from life and the enjoyment I can get from it,” he says. “I think I’m kind of finding my pace now in more of a lifestyle thing. Like, I can do this training and it’ll make me look a certain way. I’ll make sure my food is right, but I don’t feel like I’m on a diet all the t…

Peep The ‘Justice League’ Actors Intense Workout Regimens

This past Monday, Momoa, Ben Affleck and Ray Miller sat down with E! News and the subject of their training came up and it sounds pretty crazy. “You’re playing the character and you gotta look like a hero,” said Affleck . “It’s gotta be believable.” Momoa revealed that they had what he called “an amazing gym” on set, while Fisher explained some of what each actor was trying to accomplish.
“Ezra’s working on agility and mobility, Jason is leaning and shredding, I’m trying to get big like a college athlete,” related Ray Fisher. “It’s worth saying that most of the muscles in that gym belong to the Themyscirans, the Amazons in there.” Men’s Health reports that at least a couple of the superheroes are as buff as they are thanks to trainer Mark Twight. For each client, Twight said it all comes down to teaching them about movement and proper techniques—not just sculpting their end appearance as quickly as possible. His goal is “to create a culture of physicality on these productions that will…
