Two members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot went to Washington Tuesday to meet with U.S. lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
The women asked the U.S. to include 16 additional Russian officials to a sanctions list and publicly criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin for "leading Russia not to stability but to complete instability and chaos."
"All they really want is girls/ They like the way that we walk/ But they don't want to hear us talk/ We think we're always supposed to smile/ from White Castle to the Nile/ But they have no idea/ The pressure that we have to feel"

Hollywood is not happy with the Beverly Hills Hotel -- or its owners.
The Motion Picture & Television fund, which throws an annual Night Before the Oscars party at the hotel, said it will not be held there because of the hotel's ties to Brunei, where Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah instituted a severe, new, anti-gay penal code based on Sharia law last week, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
