The iconic French electronic music duo Daft Punk has officially announced it will be disbanding after 28 years.

The two have traveled “Around the World” and blessed fans with legendary hits that we just have to hear “One More Time.” Now the DJs, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have decided to go their separate ways and retire.

According to the New York Post, the music group released an eight-minute monologue called “Epilogue” on their digital platforms. The music group’s publicist, Kathryn Frazier, also told Variety that the news of them departing the group is real.

The announcement video includes the two DJs in a shaded desert. The two are sporting their signature helmets, and they are both wearing black jackets with their brand embroidered on them. The two then walk forward and then face one another in silence. One of the members then removes his jacket, showing what appears to be a battery cell. The other Daft Punk member activates the device on his back; both then step away and explode. A sunrise or sunset creeps in, and Daft Punk’s 2013 single “Touch” plays.

Daft Punk has been in the music game since 1993, creating classic songs and collaborating with heavy-hitter musicians, including Nicki Minaj, Pharrell, Kanye West, and more. They also composed the score for Disney’s “Tron: Legacy” in 2010.

We will miss you, Daft Punk!

Inaugural Poet Amanda Gorman Calls Out Security Guard Over Racial Discrimination Incident At Her Apartment

Sometimes it doesn’t matter who you are when it comes to being racially discriminated against, including Amanda Gorman, the poet who won over America after giving a stellar performance at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

On Friday, Gorman posted about her racially motivated encounter with a security guard who followed her home and told her she looked “suspicious.”

Gorman,22, went to Twitter to call out the security guard, saying the incident was emblematic of “the reality of black girls” in the US, in which “one day you’re called an icon” but the next day considered a threat.

In another tweet, she added, “In a sense, he was right. I AM A THREAT: a threat to injustice, to inequality, to ignorance. Anyone who speaks the truth and walks with hope is an obvious and fatal danger to the powers that be.”

In February, the Los Angeles native spoke out about another incident in Rochester, New York. “We live in a contradictory society that can celebrate a black girl poet & also pepper spray a 9 yr old.” The incident led to protests and the suspension of three officers.

The Guardian contacted Gorman for further comment on the recent incident, but she did not say the ethnic origin of the guard.

“Let this story sink in. And realize how – while I’m glad it ended safe for Amanda Gorman – this type of confrontation is an every day occurrence for millions of our fellow Americans,” Virginia legislator Mark Keam tweeted.

Rapper Jackboy Arrested In Georgia After Driver Failed To Maintain Lane, Arrested For Gun Possession

Georgia rapper Jackboy faces serious charges after being arrested because his driver couldn’t maintain his lane.

According to TMZ, Monroe County police pulled over the blue Lamborghini SUV the rapper was traveling in last month after noticing the vehicle’s driver could not stay in his lane.

After approaching the car, the cop smelled marijuana, so he called for backup to search the vehicle.

The search uncovered two unregistered firearms, a 9mm and a Glock, in the passenger’s side glove box where the rapper was sitting.

The “Pressure” rapper says he didn’t know the guns were in the car and a passenger riding in the backseat claimed they belonged to him. But because Jackboy is a convicted felon, he is prohibited from being within arm’s reach of a firearm.

Jackboy was arrested for possession of a firearm but was able to post a $2,500 bond the same day, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Authorities say they let the rapper and his crew off with a verbal warning over the small amount of marijuana found during the traffic stop.

Senate Passes Biden’s $1.9 Trillion COVID Relief Plan

The Senate passed President Biden’s $1.9 Trillion COVID Relief Plan early Saturday after voting took all night.

According to CNN, it took an all-night “vote-a-rama” and a 12-hour struggle to get one Democrat to finally support a critical issue in the party’s plan. The 50-49 vote down the party line means legislation is now expected to go back to the House for its final vote before Biden signs it into law.

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin showed some unexpected opposition on Friday to the deal Democrats proposed that would boost unemployment benefits. That opposition brought the Senate to a halt, as the Dems kept a Senate roll call vote open for 11 hours and 50 minutes.

Manchin finally agreed to extend $300 weekly unemployment benefits through September 6. But the West Virginia Democrat limited a provision that would make the first $10,200 in benefits nontaxable, only to any households making less than $150,000.
