The official poster for this year's Cannes film festival sparked an outcry Wednesday over claims that Italian actress Claudia Cardinale's thighs had been airbrushed to make them thinner.

Wed, 03/29/2017 - 15:25

Gangsta rappers N.W.A's seminal debut, David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust" album and the signature song from "The Wizard of Oz" will be preserved for posterity by the US Library of Congress. Among the recordings was "Straight Outta Compton," the 1988 first album by California rappers N.W.A who set off a nationwide storm with their protest song "Fuck tha Police." The Library of Congress in a statement said the album "signaled not only a seismic shift in rap from East Coast to West Coast sensibilities, but also a startling socio-political shot across the bow of the culture." Also entering the registry were two recordings of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which in 1919 was declared the "Black National Anthem." The registry picked the 1939 single "Over the Rainbow" from "The Wizard of Oz," one of the most celebrated songs in cinema.
