Lily Allen defends the children of stars who do the same job as their parents

Faced with the current revolt relayed by New York Magazine against “nepo babies” – the children of stars accused of backing down because they are “children of” – singer Lily Allen took part in the debate on Twitter.

The daughter of actor Keith Allen and producer Alison Owen, herself a "baby nepo" although now 37, believes that if there is a problem with "legacies", it is not in the artistic field that nepotism is harmful.

“The nepotistic babies you should be worried about are the ones working in law firms, in banks and in politics, if we're talking about real consequences and denying people opportunities.

BUT none of my business,” she wrote.

Bob Dylan explains why he dedicates his book to Dunkin' Donuts employees

When Bob Dylan's book

Philosophy of Modern Song

came out in November, journalists and readers were intrigued by one of the book's dedications.

The Nobel Prize for Literature thanks the employees of Dunkin' Donuts, a brand that serves coffee and donuts.

Little known for their contribution to philosophy, music or even gastronomy, what had these employees done to appear in a place of honor in a book which essentially evokes the musical memories of a child and adolescent Dylan?

The singer, songwriter and songwriter lifted the lid on the mystery in an interview with The

Wall Street Journal


When the journalist asked him about this enigma, the "Rimbaud of rock" was kind enough to answer: "Because they were compassionate, supportive and made an extra effort"...

Did they buy him donuts or leave him hanging out for hours over coffee before he found success?

The first store opened in 1950… It's hard to imagine Dylan, who rarely goes out, going to Dunkin's to snack on a donut today!
