Thank you again A.J., it's funny and fitting that you mention Soaked In Bleach because I watched it not long ago.
That thing with the toxicology reports and his ID card put in display on his wallet? Wow...
My mind was already made when I watched "Kurt & Courtney" back in the days.

And that interview Dave Grohl gave a few days after Bennington died? You could see he was not comfortable with the subject of "suicide".

Trust me, I'm looking into every info I can, to sort out my mind about this Cornell/Bennington thing, because it troubles me a lot (I'm almost ready to dive into Bennington's widow backstory, not that I suspect her, but something's not adding up in her behaviour. It's all about her. Like who introduced her to Bennington, and he immediatly got so under her spell that he married her? And as a fan of LP, thinking that his bandmates may have known something before it happened, makes me feel super uncomfortable)

I will check the lyrics of Dear Rosemary and also Superdrag's Aspartame, and Epic Ditch's Hope & Change!

I've been a silent reader of VC and the VC forums for quite a long time now, and learned a lot. Cannot watch regular television (not that I did, I don't even own one), but mainstream TV shows, movies, or listen to music because I see references everywhere. It's hidden in plain sight.
But what made me join the forums are those things I can't wrap my mind around, because it's too shady to be a "coincidence".

Also if you've got other YT channels to recommend me than the AlexJones one (I only watched the Jon Davis interview, and it was uncanny...), I'll gladly take them.
Sure the "pop music" is full of them, reality TV (*coughs* the KardaKult and how they ruin "their" men *coughs*)... So hard rock and metal and all, especially when using all that satanic imagery, can't be immune to that....

The only member of Korn (a band I used to like as a teen in 90s until I started to open my eyes) who dared open his mouth let out a insulting brainless rant calling Bennington a coward.
I like Korn but you're right, his rant was very stupid.

Yeah from what I saw and heard in Soaked in Bleach, he definitely knew better and immediatly saw the red flags when he first met Love.
What creeped me out was that she said that Cobain was supposed to hang out with Michael Stipe at the time, and man, that guy is evil.
Everyone he gets close to eventually dies in suspicious circumstances

This site confirms more than I’d ever want to know..

On Chris Cornell (put his name in the search):


Apparently this former A list rockstar spoke to this B+ list singer on the phone right after a soundcheck on that last afternoon of his life. The singer says she accidentally recorded the 20 minute phone call because she had been taking videos at the time of the call. She only noticed about three weeks ago and she says it answers some questions, but also opens up a bunch more.

Chris Cornell/Taylor Momsen (What's interesting to me is he could have probably spoken to her in person that afternoon rather than on the phone. Why did he do that?)


————————————————————————-


Our investigator decided to go to the location where the people named by the actress were located. The investigator kept backing up information and even though was out of the country, sent it to various family members for them to back up on the USB drives the investigator had been using. Shortly after the investigator began seriously digging around and asking questions, she was killed.

Fast forward a few months. This A list singer has been in touch with a woman who says that one of the last things the investigator wrote was related to the singer. This woman has no idea what half the stuff on the USB drive has to do with anything, but would the singer be interested. The woman is in the town where the investigator was living prior to her trip and death. Yes, the singer would be interested and is going to be in that town in a couple of weeks and they can get together. A few days before the singer arrives in town, he is killed.

Investigator: Monica Peterson (Assistant Director at the Human Trafficking Center in Colorado, died in November of 2016 while doing research on child trafficking in Haiti)
B- list actress: Alexis Arquette
A list singer: Chris Cornell


————————————————————————

The B+ lister also told The Investigator that the hour long conversation was a prelude to a meeting that was going to take place at breakfast the next day. The singer never made it. The B+ lister said the A lister told several people he was supposed to meet the singer the next morning to discuss something very important. Nothing other than that.


The B+ lister told several people she has spoken to The Investigator and that he was going to talk to the A lister about what was said. The meeting never happened. Instead, a day or two after the B+ list told people, the A lister was dead. Forced off the road and killed. What did he know? What was he going to meet the singer about? Someone knew there was going to be a meeting the next morning. That same someone knew he couldn't be allowed to meet with The Investigator.

Chris Cornell/Taylor Momsen/Kato Khandwala



—————————————————————————-

Investigators for the family of this former A- list musician from a permanent A list band are now checking to see if he was murdered rather than suffering a terrible accident. The problem they are facing is that his death was quite some time ago. On the bright side, they have the vehicle he was riding and it is undisturbed from that date. They also have a diary of the people he had been meeting to get financing for a movie he wanted to make with his girlfriend. The movie tries to shed light on child trafficking and exploitation. Two days before the accident that would ultimately kill him, he met with an A+++ list producer who had been visiting Washington, D.C. where our musician met him to discuss his ideas.

This same movie, which is being produced by the girlfriend of the dead musician to carry out his wishes has also claimed the lives of two permanent A list singers who were directly involved in the making of the movie and who also had confrontations with the A+++ list producer.

LeRoi Moore/Dave Matthews Band/Chris Cornell/Chester Bennington

Blind Item #8

The writer/director of an upcoming pay cable documentary was pressured to remove 95% of the dark side stuff done to kids in the entertainment industry and in return got that long awaited big paycheck/sequel he has needed for a long time.

hmmm......


The New Film Exposing Hollywood’s Child-Abuse Epidemic
While fame and fortune are an ever-enticing dream, few things seem less appealing than being a child star, and HBO’s Showbiz Kids (premiering July 14) certainly reinforces that feeling. Awash in anecdotes about the ways in which the industry—and the attendant hunger for the spotlight that consumes both children and parents—warps, alienates and exploits kids, it’s a documentary which illustrates that, sometimes, being nobody is far healthier, and more fulfilling, than being well-known.
Sexual misconduct is the dark cloud hovering over Showbiz Kids, and it comes to the fore when formerDiff’rent Strokes star Todd Bridges recalls being molested as a child—a disclosure that, according to Evan Rachel Wood, isn’t unique, as she claims, “In my experience, I know a lot of kids that grew up in the industry. And what surprised me when I got older was finding out that pretty much all of the young men were abused in some way, sexually.” She then relays that, at a recent Golden Globes gala, she watched a p***phile (whom she doesn’t name) win an award, and had to walk out because she was so disgusted by the praise being lavished upon this monster. As she departed, she thought to herself, “I don’t know if I can do this anymore. I can’t keep watching this happen. I don’t know how to handle this. This has to stop.”
Those moments are definitely the ugliest, and most eye-opening, in Showbiz Kids. Written and directed by Alex Winter, whose big breaks came in Joel Schumacher’s 1987 Brat Pack vampire thriller The Lost Boys and 1988’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the film knows whereof it speaks. An opening photo montage of illustrious young luminaries, from Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney to Ron Howard, Drew Barrymore, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, climaxes with a portrait of Winter himself, thereby underlining that this project is not only near and dear to his heart, but one driven by first-hand knowledge of the kinds of ups and downs endured by its marquee subjects.
Considering Winter’s familiarity with this topic, it’s mildly disheartening that Showbiz Kids isn’t more personal; although the actor has worked in the business for more than three decades, and admitted in 2018 that he suffered “hellish” sexual abuse at the hands of an adult man during the 1970s, his own experiences are conspicuously absent from these proceedings. Such reserve is in keeping with the overarching nature of his documentary, which largely avoids tabloid-y tales, and Winter’s reticence on that front comes across as being motivated by respectfulness. Yet it also makes Showbiz Kids seem like it’s pulling its punches—an impression exacerbated by the fact that, when it does touch upon the nasty side of the industry for pint-sized performers, it does so only fleetingly.



That’s most apparent in the case of Bridges. Though he didn’t die of an overdose like his Diff’rent Strokes co-star Dana Plato, Bridges’ drug addiction made for sensationalistic headlines, as did his multiple run-ins with the law—including being charged, and acquitted, of killing his dealer. Nonetheless, those incidents are cursorily addressed, as if the film were afraid that delving too deeply into such muck might reconfigure the material as a cautionary tale. Many of its speakers candidly discuss their struggles grappling with their new celeb-reality, but there’s a sense here that everyone is hesitant to truly decry a system that spits up and chews out kids with startling rapidity, and with little regard for the emotional and psychological scars it leaves behind.
Still, if uninterested in picking at old scabs, Showbiz Kids doesn’t wholly shy away from the unseemly. With notable distress in her eyes, Wood discusses being pushed into the profession by an artistic clan, and how her success compelled her to silence herself, since she believed that any complaints would be viewed as ingratitude by friends and family. Both Wil Wheaton and Milla Jovovich confess that they too were thrust into acting by mothers who sought to fulfill their own aspirations through their kids. And Henry Thomas remembers the intense social ostracization he suffered in his San Antonio hometown after E.T.became a global phenomenon, and how he was later squeezed out of the business as a teen when casting directors decided he’d outgrown his appeal.
“That footage, along with publicity photos, conveys the strangeness of child stardom, where kids unnaturally primp and pose for the camera—as Jovovich did in sexualized modeling shoots that she astutely states would never be allowed today.”
Bolstering these accounts is a collection of excellent behind-the-scenes clips and audition videos, including the teary-eyed tryout that nabbed Thomas his role in Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi classic. That footage, along with publicity photos, conveys the strangeness of child stardom, where kids unnaturally primp and pose for the camera—as Jovovich did in sexualized modeling shoots that she astutely states would never be allowed today. It’s too bad, then, that Showbiz Kids often just skims the surface. Jada Pinkett Smith briefly opines about helping her kids Jaden and Willow navigate modern fame, and the late Cameron Boyce reflects on transitioning into adulthood after being raised in a bizarre, hyper-coddling Disney bubble. Those and other intriguing threads (like the impact social media has on current kid stars) are raised only to be promptly dropped for the next mildly interesting story.
Showbiz Kids also follows two aspiring kid stars—Orlando native Marc Slater, who along with his mom travels to Los Angeles for pilot season; and New Yorker Demi Singleton, a vet with Broadway’s School of Rock and The Lion King on her résumé—as they search for the gig that will forever transform their fortunes. Their plights don’t reveal much, other than that striving for stardom means sacrificing much of what constitutes a normal life, as Demi learns when her summer sleepaway camp plans are shelved for additional auditions. Whereas in-depth portraits of these two might have provided a new perspective on this surreal career path, what’s presented is short on revelatory insights.
In Showbiz Kids’ best archival clip, young Mara Wilson (Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1994 Miracle on 34th Street remake, Matilda) loses her tooth during a TV interview, and the look of surprise, horror and fear that washes over her face speaks volumes about the crushing expectations put upon kid actors. That pressure is addressed more overtly in many of its one-on-one chats—including by Wilson herself, who appears to have emerged on the other side of her Hollywood tenure as a happy and well-adjusted adult—but never more powerfully than in that quick video, which epitomizes the illusory weirdness of living one’s formative early years in front of millions of eyes.
