In the last ten days, Jenna Ortega has managed to gain millions, yes, millions of followers on her Instagram, a score that even the Pirates of the Caribbean star hasn’t been able to surpass in such a short amount of time in the entirety of his lengthy and award-winning career.

10 Million People Followed Jenna Ortega Within A Span of 10 Days

Ever since Jenna Ortega starred as Wednesday in Tim Burton’s series of the same name, the actress has not only garnered an extensive fanbase and massive popularity, but has also received critical acclamation for her striking performance and impeccable depiction of the morbid protagonist in the show.

From her gothic outfits to her facial expressions, which happen to be expressive yet at the same time, emotionless, Ortega really ate and left no crumbs. So, it’s only fair to see fans losing their minds over the show and the Scream star getting more and more famous as a result of the same. But, getting 10 million followers in a measly 10 days? Even Johnny Depp couldn’t do that.

According to Pop Crave, Ortega’s Instagram follower count increased by 10 million in just 10 days after Wednesday’s release. The report claimed that the Youactress had a total of 9.4 million followers on the day the Netflix series was released, which then crossed to 19.4 million last Saturday and finally surpassed 20 million on Sunday.

That ought to be a record-breaking feat on its own.

Jenna Ortega’s Follower Count Breaks Johnny Depp’s Instagram Record 

Depp, 59, has been one of the most famous and revered actors in Hollywood, having starred in at least 69 movies throughout his acting career and being the recipient of a number of accolades including a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, besides getting nominated for an Oscar thrice.

From leading epic classics like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands to starring in the famous adventure/action series, Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp has done it all. And yet, before the commencement of his defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, he had about 5.8 million followers on his Instagram.

It was only gradually as the legal proceedings went on that the Alice in Wonderland star earned more recognition on the social media platform with the general public and many other celebrities siding and sympathizing with Depp. Even so, his follower count increased to 10 million over the course of a whole month, unlike Ortega for whom it took mere days.

And while Depp has a total of 27.9 million followers on his Instagram in all his years of glory, Ortega is at 22.1 just after the release of one Netflix show. The Gods of fame really seem to be shining down on Wednesday Addams, it seems.

Wednesday is available for streaming on Netflix.

Chicago prosecutor drops sex abuse charges against R. Kelly

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” against Kelly, who has been convicted in federal court.

An Illinois prosecutor dropped 10 charges of sex abuse against the singer R. Kelly on Monday, saying the cost was one of the factors she weighed in her decision.

Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is already serving a 30-year prison sentence on charges of federal racketeering and sex trafficking after he was convicted in New York last year.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” with the two convictions. She said her office’s “limited resources and court time” were the ultimate factors, noting that it found the accusations to be credible.

“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx said.

Kelly is set to appear Tuesday in Cook County Court, where the charges will be formally dropped. The state has accused Kelly of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors.

Foxx announced the state’s case in 2019, saying the incidents occurred from May 1998 to January 2010. Kelly had faced three to seven years in prison for each charge if he were convicted.

The women in the case were identified in the indictment only by their initials. Multiple women have come forward with allegations over the years.

Lifetime aired a six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” in January 2019 in which multiple women alleged Kelly subjected them to mental, physical and sexual abuse. Foxx urged potential victims to come forward to speak with her office about possible criminal activity after the series.

Foxx said Monday that she consulted with the women in the indictment before she decided to drop the charges, acknowledging that some might be disappointed.

“I know firsthand how difficult it is for you to tell your stories,” Foxx said. “Four years ago, I stood at this podium and shared my story of having been a survivor and my full understanding of what it means to have to go before strangers to discuss what is arguably one of the most horrific experiences one could have. And these women, all of them Black, came forward, believing that they would be heard.”

Kelly also faces state charges in Minnesota, where he has been accused of soliciting a minor for sexual purposes and engaging in prostitution with a minor.

In the New York case, Kelly was convicted on nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. Jurors found that he set up a criminal enterprise that enabled him to recruit and transport underage girls for sex.

Months later in Chicago federal court, he was convicted on six counts of sexual exploitationand enticement of a minor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges Feb. 23.

Kelly’s attorneys have said he plans to appeal both federal convictions.

50 GB Of Unreleased Michael Jackson Songs Stolen And Leaked

Published

By

Renowned music engineer Brad Sundberg’s laptop was stolen this week during a break at one of his “In The Studio With MJ” events in Brussels, leading to the leaks of several unreleased songs by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Sundberg’s laptop contained a significant amount of unreleased material by the iconic singer, predominately from the late 1980s and early 1990s. He would play them for fans who attended the events over the years.

The stolen songs, which were recorded during Michael’s “Bad” and “Dangerous” eras, have now surfaced on various online platforms, causing a frenzy among the fans. This is not the first time that unreleased material by Michael has been leaked, but under the circumstance of the theft, it’s certainly the most shocking and disappointing.

Fans have urged others to refrain from sharing or downloading the leaked songs, as they were not intended for public release and may contain unfinished versions of the tracks, as well as damage any plans for potential future releases.

We at MJWN are deeply saddened by the events. We hope those involved will be brought to justice. We will not be posting any links to the stolen material, nor naming the songs that have been leaked.

Michael’s Estate has yet to release a statement on the matter.
