Seahorse Talks Swimming Off ‘Masked Singer,’ Taking Home Some Mementos

Alas, it wasn’t enough to save her rhinestone-encrusted skin, so when the horse head came off it revealed singer/actress/producer/songwriter and season nine American Idol semi-finalist Tori Kelly. It capped a pretty epic 2020 for Kelly, who recently followed-up her quarantine EP Solitude with her first Christmas album, the 13-track A Tori Kelly Christmas.

Billboard spoke to Kelly before she was sent packing to find out why she will always hold a little piece of the glittery sea monster in her heart.

How did you end up on this show? Were you a fan?

My dad was a big fan and it was so out there and crazy that I hesitated at first. I didn’t just want to say yes to say yes right away. But then I realized it could be a really fun opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and do something that’s not so safe. I

‘He is in a swimming pool!’

Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre has hit out at the decision to award Lazio a penalty in their 1-1 Champions League draw on Wednesday. 

After Raphael Guerreiro had opened the scoring for Dortmund in the 44th minute, Lazio were handed a lifeline in the 67th minute after Nico Schulz was ruled to have fouled Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the box as he went to clear the ball.

Replays showed little contact between the two as the Lazio midfielder seemingly made the most of the incident. The spot-kick was allowed to stand however, with Ciro Immobile making no mistake with his penalty. 

Neither side would then be able to find a winner as Favre’s side secured their spot in the knockout stages with a point, but the coach was left to rue what was a controversial penalty decision in favour of Lazio. 

“We had our chances to score the second goal. Then

Divers take the plunge at the world’s deepest swimming pool, which launched in Poland last month.

With a depth of over 45 meters (around 148 feet) Deepspot is claimed to be the world’s deepest swimming pool, containing 8,000 cubic meters of water — more than 20 times the amount as a 25-meter pool.

Intended as a training and practice site for divers of all levels, it cost an estimated $10.6 million to bring to life and the construction process took over two years.

The impressive structure is fitted with a simulated “blue hole” running down to its deepest point, and even contains a small shipwreck, as well as artificial underwater caves and Mayan ruins for divers to explore.

Laura Jane Grace Turns ‘The Swimming Pool Song’ Into a Slasher Film for the Covid-19 Era

Masked killers are a common trope in horror movies — a concept Laura Jane Grace flips on its head for the Covid-19 age in the video for “The Swimming Pool Song.”

The brief slasher movie, directed by Emulsion Lab, starts with a bloodied woman in a flowered dress (poet Hannah Gamble) fleeing a figure in black across a barren field. When the woman falls to her knees and the masked figure (Grace) draws near, we see Gamble laughing as Grace retreats toward the camera, cocking a finger at the viewer. It’s a nice bit of experimental theater that seems to turn the victim into the monster, and the monster into the pursued.

“Like how in a dream, sometimes whatever fear it is that you’re running from isn’t actually anything to be afraid of at all,” Grace says of the video. “Or like how in life sometimes we couldn’t be more
