Metallica lead singer James Hetfield has donated ten classic cars to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Included in Hetfield's donations are a 1948 Jaguar “Black Pearl” and a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr “Voodoo Priest”.


The museum, whose mission is to "explore and present the history of the automobile and its impact on global life and culture," houses vehicles ranging from a 1910 Ford Model T to modern hypercars and an exhibit featuring sci-fi vehicles used in films like Blade Runner and Back To The Future.

The museum intends to pursue a couple of notable ventures in the next year.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
