Members of ‘Death Metal’ Band Decapitated Accused of Kidnapping Female Concertgoer After Show

Four members of a Polish “death metal” band have been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping a woman after an August concert in Spokane, Washington, PEOPLE confirms.

Michal M. Lysejko, 27, Waclaw J. Kieltyka, 35, Rafal T. Piotrowski, 31, and 30-year-old Hubert E. Wiecek, who are members of the band Decapitated, were taken into custody Saturday morning.

The alleged incident took place on September 1 just before 2 a.m. after the band performed at The Pin, Spokane Police Department Cpl. Teresa Fuller tells PEOPLE.

Fuller says the woman, who was a concertgoer, contacted the police.

Additional charges may be pending, Fuller says.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrested the band members just after midnight September 9. The band had been performing at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California.

“Our personnel were asked to assist Spokane in arresting four suspects with warrants for kidnapping out of Spokane,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Juanita Navarro tells PEOPLE.

(It was not immediately clear why the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department was in Santa Ana, which is in Orange County.)

Navarro says the four Polish nationals are currently being held in Men’s Central Jail on no bail in downtown Los Angeles.

The band members are awaiting extradition back to Spokane, defense attorney Steve Graham tells PEOPLE.

Graham told the Spokesman-Review that his clients are innocent. “There was another side to this,” he said. “We have witnesses that can testify to the fact that the accuser came to visit the band of her own free will and left on good terms,” he said.

Graham said the band members won’t fight extradition.

The band, which has 55,000 followers on Instagram, has been touring to promote its latest album, Anticult. “Death metal” is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

This K-Pop Band With No Korean Members Is Making People Angry

An unconventional K-pop group is attempting to dominate the Korean music industry, but the genre’s fans aren’t exactly singing its praises. 

EXP Edition, a K-pop boy band that doesn’t have a single Korean member, just released a new music video for their song “Feel Like This.” While the mostly-white, American group’s video made headlines, the release also opened up a discussion about the band’s place in the Korean music industry. 

After seeing the band sing in Korean and adopt K-pop style, Asians across the internet definitely weren’t afraid to sound off on the subject. And let’s just say, many of them won’t be listening to EXP Edition on repeat. 

The band, which calls itself “a fresh hybrid of K-pop,” actually started out back in 2014 as South Korean artist Bora Kim’s master’s degree thesis project at Columbia University. Kim explained that her goal was to explore identity politics, masculinity and other topics. 

“I was thinking about cultural flow, or the relationship of dominant culture and peripheral culture, and how that is interwoven with one’s identity or one’s national identity,” Kim, who initially pulled in friends Karin Kuroda and Samantha Shao to help with the band, explained. “I wanted to see what would happen if I made American boys into K-pop performers, by teaching them how to sing in Korean and act like Korean boys, and complicate this flow/appropriation even more…”

But since then, the band has grown to be much more than a college project and its members have even relocated to Seoul to infiltrate the Korean market. With this new single, however, dedicated K-pop fans don’t seem happy with the American group. Many called EXP out for appropriating Korean culture, since none of the members have Korean roots. In fact, shortly before moving to Korea, they admitted that they knew very little about the culture. 

“We haven’t been introduced to much of the culture,” Koki Tomlinson, the sole Asian, half-Japanese member of the group, told Fusion last year. “We have a very basic understanding of it, just because we’ve really only listened to K-pop.”

Several also criticized the group’s performance quality, asking why the band didn’t incorporate any choreography, an iconic element to K-pop, in their video. But one of the most vocalized criticisms was the way in which the all-American group decided to enter an Asian music industry when Asian artists and those of Asian descent barely ever make it in America’s. 

Indeed, Asian artists have had a tough time succeeding as they’ve often been rejected for “looking” Asian. Harlemm Lee, an artist of Chinese and Filipino descent, won the NBC reality show “Fame” in 2003 and even scored a record contract. However, he still struggled to have a successful career.  

“In terms of finding an advocate in the industry, the Asian thing has been the critical factor,” Lee told The New York Times years ago. “You don’t fit.”

The Korean music industry is one place where Asians dominate and some K-pop fans feel there’s a double standard at play when a completely non-Korean band just slides in. 

The criticisms haven’t deterred Kim and her crew from continuing their work, though. She told The Huffington Post in an email that she admits cultural appropriation is an issue, but insists that’s not what her group is doing. She feels the band isn’t appropriating because they are immersed in the K-pop scene. 

“K-pop has become an important part of our identity (professionally and personally) and that no one can deny. We are living, breathing, creating K-pop, collaborating with people in the K-pop industry every day,” she said. “So to conclude, if you ask me if we’re appropriating K-pop, I’m going to say No … We are already genuinely a part of K-pop.”

Well, if the new music video serves as any indication of their style and vibe, the band is undeniably off to a rocky start.

Jay Pharoah Says ‘Saturday Night Live’ Cast Members Told Him He Was Underutilized

Jay Pharoah, comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, has opened up about being let go from the sketch comedy show. 

On Friday morning, Pharoah appeared on Hot 97’s “Erbo in the Morning,” and held nothing back when talking about “SNL.” If you recall, he was let go last summer, along with Taran Killam

“You go where you’re appreciated,” Pharoah told hosts Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez. “If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like, ‘You’re so talented and you’re able and they don’t use you and it’s unfair. And it’s making us feel bad, because they don’t use you and you’re a talent.’”

He continued, “They put people into boxes and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do.”

Pharoah admitted he’s a “fiery” person and noted he wasn’t always willing to say yes to certain sketches when they were presented to him. He also agreed that he was put in “an impression box.” And if you watched “SNL” while Pharoah was on the show, you probably noticed he was the go-to for impersonating everyone from Jay Z to Ben Carson to Barack Obama

Another aspect of the show that rubbed Pharoah the wrong way was the lack of representation among the cast ― namely, women of color. The comedian revealed he spoke up about the issue and was almost fired because of it. 

When asked if he was the catalyst for the conversation of diversity at “SNL,” Pharoah flat-out said, “Yes. I’m the reason it happened.” Eventually, Sasheer Zamata was hired as just the fifth black woman to star on the show in 2014, and writer and occasional “Weekend Update” guest Leslie Jones was promoted to a cast member later that same year.

At the end of the day though, it seems Pharoah has no hard feelings and “no beef” with “SNL” executive producer Lorne Michaels. 

“Ain’t no problem with Lorne Michaels,” Pharoah said. “We on good graces and everything.” 

Watch the whole interview above.

KKK Members Claim They Were Paid To Fabricate Scenes For A&E Show

Members of the Ku Klux Klan who were participating in a now-canceled documentary series for A&E are claiming producers paid them to fabricate scenes for the show.

The show, “Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America,” was scheduled to premiere Jan. 10.

A&E canceled the series after learning cash payments were made “to facilitate access” to the film’s subjects by the production company, This Is Just a Test (TIJAT).

The show was initially titled “Generation KKK,” but A&E changed it to make it clear the film is a work of documentary journalism rather than reality-TV entertainment.

However, KKK leaders tell Variety that they each were paid hundreds of dollars in cash a day during filming to participate in fabricated scenes designed to fit a predetermined narrative of tension between Klan members and relatives who wanted to get out.

KKK leaders also say they were presented with scripted scenarios, encouraged not to file taxes on the cash payments, instructed about what to say on camera and directed to re-enact camera shoots until the production team got what it needed.

Multiple sources told Variety the production team even paid for material and equipment to make Nazi swastikas and to construct and burn wooden crosses.

One of the featured subjects, Richard Nichols, the grand dragon of a KKK cell known as the Tennessee White Knights of the Invisible Empire, said producers encouraged him to use the word “n****r” when being interviewed.

“We were betrayed by the producers and A&E,” Nichols said. “It was all made up ― pretty much everything we said and did was fake and because that is what the film people told us to do and say.”

The Huffington Post reached out to TIJAT but has received no response. The company had issued a statement to TheWrap.com.

“We take these allegations very seriously and in partnership with A&E we will be looking into them fully,” the statement said. “We fully expected opposition from hate organizations who wish to disparage this series.

“We have been told that participants in the series have received threats and coerced into speaking out against the authenticity of the show.”

The company also addressed A&E’s decision to cancel the series before the airdate:

“We had many many long conversations about how to tackle this subject matter, and we are proud of the program we made. We feel the backlash over the announcement of this series has led to a shoot the messenger mentality.”

Black Man Gets KKK Members To Disavow By Befriending Them

Daryl Davis, an accomplished keyboardist who has worked with Chuck Berry and Little Richard, has quite the side interest.

For the past few decades the black musician, actor and author has made it his mission to befriend people in hate groups like the Klu Klux Klan by calmly confronting them with the question:

“How can you hate me if you don’t even know me?”

His quest is the subject of the new documentary “Accidental Courtesy,” directed by Matt Ornstein and released on Dec. 9.

Though Davis’ approach may seem dangerous, he has explained his logic.

“The most important thing I learned is that when you are actively learning about someone else you are passively teaching them about yourself,” Davis explained in explained to the podcast Love+Radio via The Atlantic.

He added:

“Give them a platform. You challenge them. But you don’t challenge them rudely or violently. You do it politely and intelligently. And when you do things that way chances are they will reciprocate and give you a platform.”

Give them a platform. You challenge them. But you don’t challenge them rudely or violently. You do it politely and intelligently. And when you do things that way chances are they will reciprocate and give you a platform
Daryl Davis

In 1983, after Davis played a gig in an all-white venue in Frederick, Maryland, an audience member approached him to compliment him on his piano playing. The two struck up a friendly conversation, and Davis was surprised to discover the man was a card-carrying member of the KKK. Through this man, Davis got in touch with Roger Kelly, the former Imperial Wizard of the white supremacist organization. Over time, Kelly and Davis became close and Kelly eventually quit the hate group.

“He no longer believes today what he said,” Davis told Love+Radio. “And when he quit the Klan he gave me his robe and hood, which is the robe of the Imperial Wizard.”

Davis says that 12 other Klansmen followed suit.

Over time Davis has collected a garage-full of ceremonial robes given to him by friends who no longer hold their prejudicial beliefs. Rather than get rid of them, Davis intends to use items to start a “Museum of the Klan,” noting the importance of a nation confronting its history.

“People always say to me, ‘Daryl, how can you have this stuff? Why don’t you burn it?’” Davis says in the film, “Accidental Courtesy.” “As shameful as it is, you don’t burn our history.”

Davis’ actions are not without critics in the African-American community.

Among them is Kwame Rose, an African-American activist who protested after the death of Freddie Gray — the unarmed, 25-year-old black man who died in police custody in April 2015. Rose sat down for a drink with Davis in the film.

“You’re uneducated about the reality of most of the people who look like you,” Rose tells Davis. “Stop wasting your time going to people’s houses who don’t love you, a house where they want to throw you under the basement. White supremacists can’t change.”

Though not everyone agrees with his approach, Davis is undeterred.

Talking to Klansmen “has worked for me and I’ve proven it,” Davis told the Los Angeles Times. “I appeal to people’s common sense. I don’t seek to convert them but if they spend time with me, they can’t hate me. [The Klansman] sees that I want the same thing for my family as he does for his … if you can work on the things in common, that’s how you build friendship.”

The Bessie’s: The Dance Community Awards Excellence Among Its Members

Rarely are dancers celebrated for their work. They almost never break free from an attentive gaze that comes with constant critique and comparison. In the studio, teachers correct every articulation, striving for perfection in the human body. On the stage, critics dissect performers’ motions, searching for error. As unrealistic as Black Swan might have been, the film captured one thing beautifully: dance is a stressful art form, not just tutus and tiaras.

So it’s especially lovely when the dance community can gather together and applaud each other’s efforts. Such is the environment at the Bessie’s, dance’s version of the Academy Awards or the Tony’s. This year, the 31st-annual ceremony took place at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, with its iconic neon-red sign. Bright, plush, velvety décor set the mood, chandeliers cascading to make prisms on the walls. A DJ played music more reminiscent of a club than a cultural event, and the room felt warm, inviting — more than cordial.

Performance artist Carmelita Tropicana and former New York City Ballet principal Jock Soto made an unlikely pair as hosts. She proved eccentric, a serpentine bodysuit hugging her curves as she told too many sex jokes to count. He harbored all of the professional, stoic rigidity of a male ballet dancer whose discipline and concentration led to a 24-year career with George Balanchine’s ensemble. Still, they managed to get along, informal and improvised.

The presenters were all big names in the industry, from dancers to choreographers to programmers. Kyle Abraham took the podium, as did one of the women who launched him, Ella Baff. Ivy Baldwin delivered especially poignant eulogies for her deceased collaborator, Lawrence Cassella, and Marcelo Gomes stunned in a gorgeous silver suit.

As for the winners, most were respectful, earnest, and timid. Amar Ramasar, who was awarded Outstanding Performer, thanked Peter Martins for believing in a kid from the Bronx in an especially memorable speech. And in David Neumann’s acceptance for Outstanding Production in I Understand Everything Better, he admitted something with which any dancer could empathize: he was humbled, amazed, and… tired.

For me, the only surprise was that Robert Fairchild did not win Outstanding Performer for An American in Paris. I admit, I’m biased, and always will be biased — ballet is what I most enjoy, and I can grasp it much better than some of the alternative works downtown (though I like those, too, for the challenge). But Fairchild blew me away as Jerry, especially in his final dance scene. His charisma, his finesse, it was all magnificent… a triumph for ballet. The fact that it went unrecognized by the Bessie’s — not only Fairchild’s extraordinary dedication to his part, but also Christopher Wheeldon’s engaging choreography — baffled me.

Another notable absence was any nominee from American Ballet Theatre. This did not shock me; I’ve been following the company since I was a child, when Gomes was the new kid on the block, and I know the company is in a period of transition right now. But the hope is that Kevin McKenzie will nurture a new vanguard of artists and technicians, like Martins has at NYCB in recent years.

The evening’s apex: Steve Paxton called in from Paris to accept the 2015 NY Dance and Performance Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement in Dance. In a video beforehand, he seemed a little peeved to receive a “lifetime achievement” award; after all, he’s still kicking, still innovating, still creating. But on Skype, he was congenial, offering some off-the-cuff advice: everyone should choreograph something at least once in their life. And if you think about it, we choreograph every day. How we move along the street, how we navigate situations — it’s all choreography, whether physical or psychological.

Like most award shows, the Bessie’s sprinkled in a few performances to rupture the seriousness of the situation. After all, it would be a shame to take up the Apollo stage and not use it. Storyboard P, who won the 2015 Emerging Choreographer Award, liquefied his bones in what seemed a tribute to Michael Jackson. Lisa Nelson improvised a sweet solo with a ribbon at its center. But really the only moment that left an impression was when Camille A. Brown emerged in her white gloves. She’s intoxicating, truly, with the star quality that makes her worth watching. These days, you can’t always believe the hype surrounding a choreographer. Believe the hype about Camille A. Brown.

By 9:30, the show was over. Most people headed to an after-party to dance the night away, sans pirouettes and with alcohol and pizza. Everyone seemed to know everyone else — there were no outsiders, except perhaps me, but I was fine with being an outsider looking in. It was nice to look, to see the friendship and appreciation. I don’t envy artists for their vulnerability to the public, but at the Bessie’s, they mingled among others who understood. Speakers emphasized how hard it is to dance in NYC in the 21st century. But they do it because they love it.

That’s what you could feel at the Apollo: all the love.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner Have Actually Gotten Lost in a Family Member’s Closet

As part of a very fashionable family, no one was surprised when Kendall and Kylie Jenner entered the creative space as professionals. Among their individual accomplishments (beauty lines, walking in Chanel shows), the girls also carve out time to work together, creating an eponymous line sold at PacSun. The twosome chatted with Glamour about what it’s like to do work together on the line that hit stores last week.

kylie-kendall-jenner-pacsun-collaboration

Glamour: How is it working together?

Kylie Jenner: Kendall and I do just about everything with each other, but as we’ve grown up, our interests are changing. It’s really nice to be able to spend time on something we love and work together so closely on this since we can’t always be together.

Kendall Jenner: Totally. We’re sisters, so we’re always going to butt heads a bit, but at the end of the day, we respect each other’s opinions. We’ve worked together on the collection from start to finish, so there’s a little of Kylie and a little of me in every piece.

Glamour: Which piece from the new collection do you think you’ll end up living in?

Kendall: Oh God. It’s tough, but I’m gonna go with the crochet bikini. It’s different compared to the other swimsuits that I have at home, and I feel like it’ll be my go-to for pool parties or the beach this summer.

Kylie: I love that suit too! I guess I’d have to say the crochet romper because it’s different than what we’ve designed in the past. Something about it makes it so easy to dress up or down when I’m with my friends, or I’ll throw it on when I have to run errands.

Glamour: Describe each other’s style in a few words…

Kendall: Kylie, you go first.

Kylie: Let’s see…timeless, casual, and chic?

Kendall: I can work with that. My three words [for Kylie] would be edgy, fun…different. Wait, can I use “out there”?

Glamour: Totally. We’ve heard you both say whose family member’s style you admire the most, but who has the best closet, physical space-wise?

Kylie: Definitely Kim.

Kendall: All of our sisters have amazing closets, but Kim’s is insane. You could literally get lost in there. I probably actually have once or twice.

‘Love Cloud’ Sex Flights Offered For Wannabe Mile-High Club Members

If you’ve ever wanted to join the mile-high club but don’t want to risk getting caught, a Las Vegas entrepreneur is ready to make your X-rated dreams comes true.

Love Cloud is a new service offering flights over Sin City for couples looking to engage in a little sin of their own — but company founder Andy Johnson says it’s about so much more than sex.

I want it to be romantic,” he told Las Vegas Weekly. “One of those bucket-list things that you did that you will never forget for the rest of your life.”

Here’s a photo of your entry into the mile-high club, from the company’s Facebook page:

The aircraft is a Cessna 421 dubbed the “Golden Eagle” that normally seats six but has been modified to include a custom-made foam mattress with a Liberator Heart Wedge and Decor Whirl bolster (these are basically sex pillows).

Here’s a look at the interior:

And another:

“After every flight, Love Cloud has a cleaning service that cleans every part of the aircraft with specific cleaning products to kill any and all germs,” Johnson, 32, told KLAS-TV, adding that sheets, pillowcases and towels are all changed.

The plane also packs a sound and light system as well as a curtained door that separates you from the pilot, who will be wearing a noise-canceling headset to drown out any mile-high moans.

While it may sound like an April Fool’s Day hoax (and may well turn out to be), Johnson told Las Vegas Weekly earlier in March that he’s already booking flights and is even in the second round of auditions to get his company onto the “Shark Tank” TV show, in which small business attempt to obtain investments from deep-pocketed entrepreneurs.

Before you board the Love Cloud, however, there is one caveat: Johnson pleaded guilty to reckless operation of an aircraft and served 20 days in jail due to a 2012 incident around a Virginia-based flight school he once owned.

In any case, he says he won’t be flying the plane; he’ll be running his mile-high operation from the ground.

Flights start at $ 799 for 40 minutes with routes over the Vegas Strip, Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
