Salman Rushdie, Patti Smith to make joint appearance Dec. 4.

Salman Rushdie and Patti Smith should have a lot to talk about.

Rushdie, the Booker Prize winning novelist, and Smith, the award winning musician-poet-memoirist, will make a joint appearance Dec. 4 for the 5th annual Chairman's Evening of the MacDowell Colony.

MacDowell, based in New Hampshire and one of the country's oldest arts colonies, told The Associated Press on Friday that the event will take place at the Whitney Museum in Manhattan.

MacDowell chairman Michael Chabon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, will serve as moderator. Rushdie, who has collaborated on songs with Bono of U2, said in a statement that he looked forward to discussing "life, art and rock 'n' roll" with Smith.

Previous MacDowell gatherings have paired Martin Scorsese with Lin -Manuel Miranda and Stephen Sondheim with Paul Simon.

Imagine Dragons Release Video For ‘Whatever It Takes’

On Thursday Imagine Dragons dropped the music video for their song ‘Whatever It Takes’. It features the band jamming in a house as rain begins and it starts to flood. The house is then seen completely overtaken with water and later catches fire.

The video is falling under some criticism today as people think it’s insensitive and poorly timed given the devastation left by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria this year. Harvey alone displaced about 30,000 due to extensive flooding. However, others say the video can be interpreted as inspiring and a message of strength to those affected given it’s powerful ‘whatever it takes’ message.

It’s unclear when exactly the video was filmed and there has been no statement from the band as to what the message is meant to be.

What do you think? Insensitive or inspiring?

Imagine Dragons will be at the Amway Center November 10th with Grouplove and K.Flay.

Fans in low places: Sound woes mar Garth Brooks stadium show

Fans at the first big concert at Atlanta's gleaming new sports arena say a screeching sound made it impossible to hear country music star Garth Brooks' lyrics — even though they knew all the words to his songs.

Some fans left Thursday night's show early, WSB-TV reported . Others are asking for refunds.

Stadium officials are looking into sound quality in sections of the upper concourse, Mercedes-Benz Stadium said in a statement late Thursday. A breaker that powered speakers was tripped for "a small amount of time," it said.

Fans cheered when former President Jimmy Carter took to the stage shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday with Georgia native Trisha Yearwood, who also performed at the concert. Carter thanked Yearwood for her support of the state and Habitat for Humanity, video at WSB-TV's website showed.

Yearwood, a Georgia native, then began singing, "Georgia on My Mind."

The $1.5 billion stadium opened this year and is home to the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons and Major League Soccer's Atlanta United.

There have been issues with its retractable roof, which was open for the Falcons' regular-season home opener but closed for several other events.

'Morning Joe' host Scarborough officially leaves GOP

MSNBC host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough has made his departure from the GOP official.

The "Morning Joe" anchor said on Twitter on Thursday that he became an independent and he added a picture of himself with an elections official in New Canaan, Connecticut, smiling while holding a form.

Scarborough announced that he would leave the party in July and accused Republicans of abandoning their fiscal principles. Scarborough has been a fierce critic of President Donald Trump, who has targeted Scarborough and his fiancee and co-host Mika Brzezinski on Twitter.

Scarborough was elected to four U.S. House terms from Florida starting in 1994.

Linkin Park releases 'Carpool Karaoke' with late Bennington

Linkin Park has released the episode of "Carpool Karaoke" the band filmed in July, six days before lead singer Chester Bennington took his own life.

The 23-minute episode of the Apple Music series has been posted to the band's Facebook page . Bennington appears to be in good spirits throughout the episode and is shown behind the wheel teaching episode host Ken Jeong how to sing in Bennington's signature scream. Bennington's bandmates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn are also featured, performing some of the band's hits karaoke-style, including "Numb" and "In the End."

The episode begins with a message stating that its release has the blessing of Bennington's family and is dedicated to his memory.

Bennington hanged himself at his California home on July 20.

Alec Ybarra, 13, wrote, acted, directed and edited an independent film, “Unmarked,” which is based on his own story, WQAD reported.

Alec said the bullying got so bad he changed schools. That changed his outlook, and he wrote the screenplay for “Unmarked” in two days, WQAD reported.

"That’s what happened in real life," Alec told WQAD. "All those events took place over the course of a year. It’s about a friend’s angry mother who tries to destroy the student that knows information about her son that could get her son in trouble."

Alec said he learned a great deal about making a film, and calls the project his passion.

"It did help a lot," he said. "Now looking back at it, I’ve been working on the film itself for a year and a half. It’s helped a lot I went through a whole year of this situation, it tore me down a lot. Then I was able to make a film about it, that can hopefully help a lot of people going through similar things."

Alec’s parents said the bullying was a heartbreaking situation.

"It’s tough because you don’t want your son beat up or bullied, especially as time went on and we found out a parent was involved,” Alec’s father Fred Ybarra said. "(Making the film was) a passion of his, at one time.

"I thought he was going to outgrow it, but it’s what he loves doing and he’s good at it."

Alec is exploring options to distribute the film. He wants children to see his movie and learn from his experience.

"The message of the film I am trying to portray is standing up for yourself," he told WQAD. "That is one of the things I had to do a lot in real life, especially since that person had gotten everyone to turn against me. That’s what I want to portray through the script and the film and acting, you need to stand up for yourself in these situations."

National Bullying Prevention month has been observed every October since 2006.

Widow of Peanuts creator loses home in California fire

The widow of Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip, was forced to evacuate the California home the couple shared as fire raced through Santa Rosa, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Jean Schulz fled her hillside home, which was built in the mid-1970s, about 2 a.m. Monday, her stepson, Monte Schulz, told the Mercury News.

“She is very resilient,” he told the Mercury News. “She is energetic and pragmatic and very tough.”

Jean Schulz is president of the board of directors for the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center built in Santa Rosa two years after the cartoonist’s death in February 2000. Most of his collection of original comic strips, artwork and memorabilia featuring characters Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts Gang, is housed at the museum, which was untouched by the fire.

“But there were a lot of Peanuts things in the house,” Monte Schulz told the Mercury News.

The fire affected other members of the Schulz family, the Mercury News reported. Monte’s brother, Craig Schulz, who lives in Santa Rosa with his family, also lost his house in the fire.

“It’s sad. It’s erased,” Monte Schulz said of his father’s house. “Everything that was in there, every connection we had to dad vis-a-vis that house, is gone now.”

Before Charles Schulz’s death at age 77, the Peanuts comic strip appeared in 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries.

In Weinstein saga, Rose McGowan emerges as powerful voice

In a flurry of unrestrained tweets and with the "RoseArmy" at her back, Rose McGowan has emerged a kind of whistleblowing avenger in the Harvey Weinstein saga, leaving a scorched path behind her across social media.

After long referencing a past incident with Weinstein, McGowan on Thursday for the first time said it outright: "HW raped me," the actress wrote, apparently referring to the embattled former Weinstein Co. co-chairman. Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister said "any allegations of non-consensual contact are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein."

The Hollywood Reporter said McGowan confirmed it was Weinstein she was referring to; her representative did not respond to a message seeking comment.

McGowan's accusation was the latest development in the fast-unraveling saga surrounding Weinstein.

Police detectives in New York and London said Thursday that they are taking a fresh look into sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein now that some 30 women have accused the Hollywood film producer of inappropriate conduct. Hachette Book Group, one of the country's top publishers, announced it has pulled the plug on its Weinstein Books imprint.

But it has been McGowan who spoke loudest Thursday, even though she spent half the day suspended by Twitter.

McGowan last year said that she had been raped by a "studio head." The New Yorker expose that ran Tuesday reported that Weinstein had allegedly sexually assaulted three women, though the third woman was unnamed. The New York Times earlier reported that Weinstein paid a financial settlement of $100,000 to McGowan in 1997 after an episode at a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

That settlement included provisions about speaking about the case in the future, but McGowan has increasingly refused to mince words. "It's on," tweeted McGowan before launching into a series of tweets directed at Amazon head Jeff Bezos.

"I told the head of your studio that HW raped me," said McGowan in tweets directed to Bezos. "Over and Over I said it. He said it hadn't been proven. I said I was the proof."

Amazon did not return a message seeking comment.

Authorities are also seeking evidence against Weinstein, who in a video posted by celebrity website TMZ was shown Wednesday outside a Los Angeles home telling the paparazzi he's "not doing OK" and that he "needs help."

New York Police Department spokesman Peter Donald said Thursday that investigators are reviewing police files to see if anyone else reported being assaulted or harassed by him.

So far, no filed complaints have been found, he said, other than one well-known case that prompted an investigation in 2015, but authorities are encouraging anyone with information on Weinstein to contact the department.

London police were also looking into a claim it had received from the Merseyside force in northwest England, British media reported Thursday. Merseyside police said the allegation was made a day earlier and concerned "an alleged sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s."

Some 30 women — including actresses Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow — have spoken out recently to say Weinstein had sexually harassed or sexually assaulted them. Weinstein was fired Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother.

Some of the allegations involved conduct at hotels in Beverly Hills, but police there didn't return calls on whether they were investigating any possible crimes. The Los Angeles Police Department has no open investigations.

Detectives in the NYPD's special victims unit were instructed to identify and speak with any potential victims, including the women who spoke about their encounters with Weinstein in the New Yorker article, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the matter who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office, which shares a records system with Park City Police, had no reports or calls involving Weinstein or McGowan in the past 30 years, sheriff's spokesman Lt. Andrew Wright said.

In The New Yorker expose, a former actress, Lucia Evans, said Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex in 2004 when she was a college student. A second woman, actress and filmmaker Asia Argento, told the magazine that Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 1997 at a hotel in France.

Under New York law, making someone engage in oral sex by physical force or the threat of it is a first-degree criminal sexual act. There's no legal time limit for bringing charges.

New York detectives already investigated Weinstein once, the 2015 probe when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said prosecutors decided there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute the case.

"I, like they, were very disturbed by the contents of the tape," Vance said. "But at the end of the day we operate in a courtroom of law, not the court of public opinion. And our sex crime prosecutors made a determination that this was not going to be a provable case."

Police investigated that allegation as a case of forcible touching, a misdemeanor with a two-year time limit for bringing charges. The statute of limitations has since expired.

Thursday evening, Amazon Studios announced its chief, Roy Price, had been placed on leave after a producer detailed crude remarks she said he made to her after a 2015 Comic-Con event in San Diego. Isa Hackett, the daughter of author Philip K. Dick and a producer on the Amazon series "Man in the High Castle," told The Hollywood Reporter that Price persisted with sexual remarks toward her throughout the evening.

She said she complained to Amazon executives, who launched an investigation but never informed her of the results. She told the Reporter she never saw Price again at an Amazon event promoting the show or another series based on her father's work.

Hours earlier, the Eastern branch of the Writers Guild of America pledged to take action to prevent future abuse, noting that "sexual harassment and assault have long been hallmarks of the entertainment industry."
