The Story Behind Kesha's “Rainbow” Will Break You And Then Build You Up Again

“I just kept saying, ‘I’m gonna put out Rainbow, I’m gonna put out Rainbow. I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna put it out. I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna do it.’ This idea, and the support I received from fans and total strangers, is what helped me get up every day,” she writes. “For a long time, I didn’t know if that idea was just a fantasy, a ghost to keep me waking up and actually getting out of my bed, or if it could actually come true. But I just held onto that idea because it was all I had.”

The panel screened a sneak peak of the episode that showed Archie (K.J. Apa) in his blood-stained letterman jacket, talking to his friends about the shooting.

New “Teen Wolf” Footage Just Hinted That Jackson's Not Straight And Fans Are Losing It

“I can say that Jackson is everyone’s type. He was very excited because he’s getting attention again. So he saw this beautiful girl who was checking him out, so he checked her out. Then he saw this beautiful guy, and he gave him love, too. And then maybe there’s a scene when they have a threesome after — you never know. He’s definitely an equal opportunist. He enjoys love. Love is love, you know what I mean? Love wins, goddammit. Love wins.

9 Burning Questions About The New “Jumanji” Movie

What we know is that this movie is centered on four teens, played at first by Alex Wolff (Spencer), Madison Iseman (Bethany), Ser’Darius Blain (“Fridge”), and Morgan Turner (Martha).

6 Ways “Wonder Woman” Is A Breath Of Fresh Air In This Cruel World

You might have heard of the term “fridging,” which refers to a trope in comic books, TV, and movies wherein a character is killed to further the emotional arc of another character. It’s also sometimes known as “Women In Refrigerators,” because of an instance in the Green Lantern comics when a woman’s corpse was literally left in a refrigerator for her boyfriend to find. If you want another example: After Gwen Stacy plummets to her death in Spider-Man (both in the comics and the movie), Peter Parker is so heartbroken, it motivates his heroism forever after.

The character who ends up dead is, most often, female; and the one whose story is pushed forward by their grief is, more often than not, male. In Wonder Woman, though, it’s Steve who dies — in his own heroic moment, sure, but he’s dead. Super dead. And his death is designed to deepen Diana’s dedication to her cause. It’s a symbol, and one that has more power because of the trope it’s subverting. Steve’s death really hammers the point home: This is Diana’s story, and any man who plays a role in it — no matter how great he might be — is not going to outlast our girl.
