Lil Peep’s mum Liza Womack has paid tribute to her son by releasing a music video for his single Save That Shit.

Lil Peep, also known as Gus Åhr, died on November 15 due to an accidental overdose, just hours before he was meant to perform a show.

His sudden death rocked the music world, and his mum has now released a video to accompany his track Save That Shit in honour of her 21-year-old son.

In a statement, Liza said: ‘It’s been a hard time for all of us who loved Gus and we are going through the process of coming to terms with our loss.

‘Peep would have wanted his collaborators to move forward with his plan for the release of music and visuals in 2018 as he had originally intended. So today, we are starting that process by releasing the video for Save That Shit.’

The video opens with the words: ‘In loving memory of my son Gus.’

It was directed by his close friends and collaborators Mezzy (who directed Girls and Benz Truck) and Heavyrayn (who filmed him extensively over the tour), and features appearances from his song muse Emma and friend Rose.

It also features concert and tour footage.

‘The ultimate goal here to me is to do anything that we can to spread Gus’ music and to color inside of the lines he created through his art,’ Mezzy said of the release.

It won’t be the last video from Lil Peep.

On 12 January 2018 his collaboration with DJ Marshmello will be released, along with a video shortly after.

Lil Peep died on November 15 in Arizona on his tour bus just hours before he was due to perform a show.

He reportedly went for a nap around 5.45pm and when his manager checked on him he was sleeping and breathing normally. When she checked on him later he couldn’t be roused. Efforts were made at the scene to save his life, but he could not be revived.

Before the reports came to light, his brother claimed it had to have been an accident because Lil Peep had been very happy just prior to his death.

‘It was an accident, it really was an accident,’ he told People. ‘He was super happy with where he was in life.’

It later transpired to be an accidental overdose of Fentanyl and Xanax, which if taken together can be prove a fatal concoction.

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.

Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.

"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.

"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.

Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.

Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic..

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.

The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.

But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.

Taron Egerton on Sir Elton: 'I adore him'

The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.

Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".

"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.

"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
