E! News" Ken Baker Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Two Different Women — See What He Had To Say On The Matter HERE!

Just when you think you know someone… On Thursday, it was revealed that E! News' Ken Baker has been accused of sexual harassment by two employees. Per reports, one former E! News staffer claims that back in 2012 Baker called her into his dimly lit office and asked her to sit on his lap. Another alleged [...] Just when you think you know someone... On Thursday, it was revealed that E! News' Ken Baker has been accused of sexual harassment by two employees. Per reports, one former E! News staffer claims that back in 2012 Baker called her into his dimly lit office and asked her to sit on his lap. Another alleged victim has accused Ken of kissing her without her consent when she was only an intern in 2011. Related: Third Woman Makes Groping Claims Against President George H.W. Bush The same woman said the industry vet also propositioned her for sex countless times over the years and even asked to gift her with "a Tiffany dildo with ‘Ken Baker' engraved on the shaft." Ewwww. The entertainment newsman has since addressed the allegations as he released the following statement to The Wrap: "I am very disturbed by these anonymous allegations, which make my heart ache. I take them very seriously. I care deeply for people's feelings and sincerely live in a way that treats people with dignity and respect." Well, this isn't necessarily a denial or an apology! It's said the ex-intern's account of what went down with Baker has been supported by the former employee and a career coach, who listened to the victim complain about Ken's texts years ago. Understandably, the coach was "furious" when she saw the salacious texts on the accuser's phone. She shared: "I wanted to report that day, but I had to respect her wishes. She did not want me to do anything. She said I'll handle it. I tried to convince her. I really did." Although it's believed that Baker didn't threaten any of the women, the former intern worried that if she came forward she'd be blacklisted. Apparently, the 47-year-old sent sexual texts to the woman for four-plus years after the internship concluded. Eventually, the unnamed victim ordered Baker to stop it with the texts. In response to the demand, Ken supposedly apologized and arranged for the woman to meet with a casting director. The E! Network has been alerted to the allegations as they released their own statement on the matter. The network noted: "E! has a longstanding commitment to providing a safe working environment in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity. We take all complaints of misconduct seriously, and thoroughly investigate all allegations of harassment." This isn't the first time Baker's been accused of being inappropriate with an employee. Back in 2007, when Ken was the West Coast bureau chief of Us Weekly, a lawsuit claimed he hired his children's nanny as a reporter and texted the said female about wanting have sex with her and noted that he wanted to "see her pregnant with pigtails." Ugh. Related: Harvey Sues The Weinstein Co. After Fallout The ex-E! staffer who shared the "lap" story relayed that Ken would often make inappropriate comments and/or touch her in uncomfortable ways. She explained: "He makes physical comments like, ‘That's a really cute outfit' or ‘That's a really tight shirt.' … He would put his hand on my waist and leave it there too long. I almost feel like it's a power trip. It's like, ‘I can do these things.'" Tsk, tsk. The unwanted attention escalated in 2012 when Ken asked the accuser to come into his office to look at a script. According to the woman, Ken made it difficult for her to look at the computer screen and eventually invited her to sit on his lap. The woman realized he was serious after he "pushed back in his chair a little bit." As for the intern, she first met Ken in an elevator in 2011. The woman would meet in Ken's office regularly in the hopes of getting career advice, but Baker would always turn the conversations from professional topics to sexual ones. The victim recalled: "I thought he would be more of a mentor. He was telling me about how his marriage was failing and about his kids." The former pro athlete attempted to make a move after one of these office meetings. At first, Ken went in for just a hug, but then: "He kind of walked me to the door, gave me a hug and tried to pull one on me and managed to land it. He wanted a long kiss but it was more of a peck… I was like, ‘Whoa, get the fuck off.'" Ick. Although the intern is known for her crass sense of humor, she was never comfortable with the sexual elements of her conversations with Ken. She added: "There was lots of text messaging. He would always twist it. Always make it sexual." How awful. We couldn't be more disappointed in Ken, especially since he's been doing coverage on Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. Can y'all say HYPOCRITE?? Smh. [Image via Nicky Nelson/WENN.].....»»

Related: Katy Perry Stans Are Feeling Mixed About The Swish Swish Vid! Before we continue, let us give you some context. Back in 1996, the famed diva collaborated with Boyz II Men for a beautiful ballad and it dominated the chart for a mind-blowing 16 weeks. Mariah has kept this record for more than 20 years!!! Now Justin Bieber's collab with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee (Despacito, duh) is threatening Carey's record as the track has spent 15 weeks on the chart. Obviously, this fact has sent Mariah's lambs into a panic (below). i swear to god if despacito dethrones one sweet day for the longest #1 i'll officially lose faith in humanity pic.twitter.com/C8yPNbnFM2 — ava (@babydollriah) August 21, 2017 Can someone dethrone Despacito already?

As Tay Tay is slated to drop a new single later tonight, the Lambs have chosen to stan the blonde pop princess (below) in order to give it enough traction to keep Despacito from dethroning One Sweet Day.

Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers

Music and pop culture continually have a tremendous impact on our world. Iconic has re-entered our everyday language. And for a good reason (Have you HEARD Kiwi?)! Something that’s iconic is highly original; it’s innovative or influential. These ten album covers are iconic, the times and artists they represent helped shape music into what it has become, and these particular covers are immediately recognizable even by the most casual listeners. Nirvana: Nevermind The baby on the cover of this album is named Spencer Elden, and because of the explosive success of this album, he will always be the most famous baby in the rock industry! Kurt Cobain had this concept come to him while watching a documentary about water births with Dave Grohl. He wanted to paint a picture of a baby already corrupted by money and greed – and he definitely succeeded in a controversial way. Pink Floyd: Dark Side of The Moon This slightly trippy prism design adorns Pink Floyd’s eighth album. It is among the most recognizable images in rock music. Storm Thorgerson was the band’s graphic designer for the cover, and he told Rolling Stone that he used the triangle as a symbol of thought and ambition, which he felt related to the lyrics in a big way. It is also reminiscent of a light show. George Hardie put the image together, and he says it represents three things, “the band’s stage lighting, the album lyrics, and [keyboardist, Richard] Wright’s request for a ‘simple and bold’ design.” The Beatles: Abbey Road The Beatles are iconic in their own right, but the photo that was used for the cover of their eleventh studio release, Abbey Road, is almost the definition of iconic. It is also the last album where all four of the men participated in the recording sessions. The photo was taken right outside of the EMI Studios building where they recorded the songs. The album saw immediate commercial success and is regarded as the band’s best album, and one of the best albums of all time. The album’s cover has become one of the most famous images in music, and hundreds of people flock to that street to recreate it every year. The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Andy Warhol had been approached before about doing album art for The Rolling Stones, but they didn’t use his design for the original album they approached him for. Later, his idea of using a working zipper on an album cover sprung to life on the cover of Sticky Fingers. Warhol and a graphic artist named Craig Braun worked together on this suggestive art, and the art actually won a Grammy. The zipper opened to reveal some white underwear. Oddly, the cover was banned in Spain and changed to a pretty disturbing picture of a can of fingers in some blood. David Bowie: Aladdin Sane The sixth album in David Bowie’s discography came right after his 1972 concept album, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust. Even though this wasn’t the first time his [...] The post Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

BTW, Kid Rock Was NEVER Running For Senate & Thinks Y"all Are Dumb For Ever Believing Him

Because for a minute there, we kind of believed that Kid Rock would actually be running for Senate! Related: Mark Cuban Teasing A 2020 Presidential Campaign But fortunately (unfortunately?), the rocker confirmed his political ambitions over the past few months were nothing but a ploy to promote his upcoming album Sweet Southern Sugar. During a Tuesday appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the Rock n Roll Jesus singer couldn't believe anyone actually bought his widely-reported foray into politics, confessing: "Fuck no, I'm not running for senate, are you kidding me? Who couldn't figure that out? I'm releasing a new album. I'm going on tour, too. Are you fucking shitting me?" Forgive us, Kid. We have an actual cartoon pumpkin running the Oval Office -- an absurd rock star running for Senate just seems like the natural next step! Video: CNN Takes Shots At Trump With 'Facts First' Campaign But alas, instead of going on a campaign tour, the performer will embark on a North American tour in support of his album, his first since 2015's First Kiss, kicking off early next year. As for his now defunct Senate run, the 46-year-old called it "the worst advice that I ever gave myself, but it's been the most creative thing I've ever done. And I got to see everybody's true colors." Oh well, at least we can still hold out hope for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's 2020 presidential campaign!
