BTS Delivers Speech on Global Diplomacy at the U.N.

During a sustainability event at the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, the seven-member K-pop band BTS delivered a speech to help promote U.N. goals for 2030 which include ending extreme poverty, preserving the planet and achieving gender equality. "Every choice we make is the beginning of change, not the end," said RM, 27, the band's leader. The band members also spoke on how their generation will be shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We think that instead of the 'lost generation,' a more appropriate name would be the 'welcome generation.' Because instead of fearing change, this generation says, 'Welcome!' and keeps forging ahead," he continued.

The video of BTS' seven-minute speech received over 6.4 million views and fans flooded the comments section in support of the band members.

Britney Spears Netflix Documentary

A Netflix documentary about Britney Spears is one step closer to reaching the screen, as a trailer teaser for the film Britney Vs. Spears confirms. In the 18-second clip, Spears is heard leaving a message for an attorney in 2009. A trailer is expected to drop on Wednesday, Sept. 22 and the doc itself on Sept. 28, ahead of Spears next court date on Sept. 29.

The documentary is being directed by Erin Lee Carr and has been underway for more than a year. Netflix declined Varietys request for comment on the project, and representatives for Carr did not immediately respond.

The Netflix doc is said to center around Spears highly-unusual conservatorship, and will feature key figures in Spears orbit. It is unclear, though highly unlikely that Spears, herself, will appear in the project, given how closely guarded she has been from media opportunities throughout the course of her conservatorship. Earlier this month, Spears father Jamie asked a judge to end her 13-year conservatorship. Of his daughter, an attorney wrote in the request, If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance. Netflixs documentary about Spears, which was first reported by Bloomberg months ago, has been in the works long before Framing Britney Spears debuted.
