The Xfactor- Episode 1 and 2

Published

on

Day 2 of Xfactor is over and there have been some exceptionally talented people, some born diva’s and a whole lot of laughs. I will be the first one to admit that ever since season 1 of American Idol ended, I have not indulged in any type of singing or dance competition reality show,  so the only reason I am watching this season is because of my love for Britney Spears.

Props must be given to everyone who had the courage to perform and audition in front of these four prestigious judges. Simon does not mess around and he is not easily impressed. I don’t think he ever gave a standing ovation for anyone. Anyone except 13-year-old Carly, who bless her old soul, sang like a goddess sent from the angels above. Even if she doesn’t get to the finale, fame is hers. As LA said, today a star was born. Remember this day.

Flamboyantly awesome and sparkly personalities always leave a lasting impression. Especially those people that live in an alternate reality and fantasize about the production of their next show. Well the minute that guy opened his mouth to sing ‘New York State of Mind’ by Billy Joel, that was it. We were sold and we were all at his concert. Crackle, pop, fireworks and glitter galore!

Its extremely touching to see young mothers follow their dreams despite the obstacles they may face. The young woman that auditioned on Wednesday’s episode was mind blowing (and I do apologize for not knowing names, I’m sure we will get acquainted further on down the line when it actually matters.) L. A Reid laid it on the money when he said that she reminded him of a young girl that just a couple of years ago walked into his office. She had the spunk and the feel of Rihanna, only with much better pipes and many hardships and life experiences to back up her talent.

Also amazingly impressive from last night’s episode was Emblem3, which remind me of an edgier and less boybandish One Direction.  The best thing to watch though is the over confident, attitudey, annoyingly stuck up people, with ego’s bigger than Kim Kardashian’s booty, try to put down the competition and give them horrible advice.  Literally you just want to see these people fail. For example, the girl that was country blonde and sounded like she was dying when she sang, the English backstreet boy that went on millions of tours in the U.K with his boy band once upon a time but no one ever heard of him, and the actress, singer, dancer with her cleavage exposed that sang on one monotone tune. Its like the judges take a needle and pop this water balloon and it splashes all over them and extinugishes their pride, leaving them slightly confused and shocked. While they are in that state of confusion  the people they were tyring to discourage and put down get 4 yes’s. Take that bullies!

Speaking of bullies. The moment when that girl with the raspy voice came out and connected on a depressing and personal level with Demi Lovato was a changing point in the show. It showed courage and strength and brought tears to my eyes. I hope you bullies are watching because like Demi said, those people are probably fat and sitting at home watching while these girls are on stage stronger and better than ever. Once you can sing flawlessly with tears pouring down your eyes, thats talent. That’s when you know you’ve made it. There is no one that can take that away from you. There is something so authentic and honest about pain that just flows out of some people through music and art, and it is beautiful.

Now the judges. Honestly this is the best group of judges in the world. Simon, who is a god dang brilliant business man, did wonders to revive this show. Why? One word: Britney Spears. If there is anyone that knows anything about the celebrity industry, its her. Also in the mix is L.A Reid, who literally knows everything about the music industry. Demi Lovato also brings a fresh and young perspective to those that could possibly have forgotten what is actually good and what is bad music. Its really fascinating to see Mrs. Britney Spears in the raw; real, happy, critical, truthful, honest and just Britney, the one we know and love. Aside from those obsessively compulsive fans, her judging seems to be on point and knowledgable. And did you see those previews where she sings happy birthday?? Homegirl has gotten it all back!!! Finally. This honestly might be the most entertaining season of Xfactor to date!

Just a special treat for all you Glee fans. I really do not like Glee, but flipping through channels I stumbled upon Kate Hudson’s rendition of “American” and “Dance and Love.” I’m obsessed. Its got amazing vocals and wonderful, sexy dancing. Yum. Let me also take this time to remind you that there will be a Britney focused episode sometime this season. Yes, a second one! Go Glee!!

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

on

Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.

On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.

But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.

We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.

Most Frustrating Thing About the Season

The love triangle.

We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.

The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.

 

Funniest Moment

There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.

Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.

But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.

On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant

Fall TV Preview: Riverdale Season 4 Trailer Reveals Jughead is Missing

Published

The Riverdale Season 4 Trailer is Here & Jughead is Missing

The Riverdale trailer for season 4 is equal parts sexy and mysterious (what the hell happened to Jughead?!)

The series creators promised the season would be more high-school oriented giving it a “season 1” vibe following a dark, twisted, and oftentimes, ridiculous (we still loved it) G&G/ The Farm storyline on season 3.

And while they’re making good on that promise — we see Cheryl and the like prancing around the halls of Riverdale High — the show still capitalizes on the darker undertones and secrets.

This is a town that thrives on murder, and that’s never going to change.

The teens grapple with a pretty daunting realization — they’re going to have to part ways after senior year.

“Isn’t it crazy? In just nine-months, life as we know it will be over,” Veronica (Camila Mendes) muses without realizing the statement is more ominous than she intended.

The trailer reveals that one favorite may not make it through their senior year alive as the whole town embarks on a search mission through the volatile woods of Riverdale.

Who are they looking for? Our very own Jughead Jones.

Fans expected a rocky season for Jug following the cliffhanger of season 3, which saw him missing as Betty, Veronica and Archie cleaned up the blood from their clothes, but this has us officially worried.

Later in the trailer, we hear Jughead’s screams as he begs for “help” and tries to break out of what sounds like a car trunk.

What happened to Jughead? And is his disappearance linked to whatever happened in the final episode?

Other major moments in the trailer include Betty getting clobbered over the head from behind by an unknown figure (she’s after the Farm so it could be Evelyn Evernever), crime scene photos that make Betty gasp “oh my god,” a scantily dressed Veronica performing some pussycat dolls-esque routine on stage as she assures that she’s “no stranger to scandal,” and a bunch of smokin’ sex scenes with our three favorite ships: Choni, Bughead, and Varchie.

Yep, sounds like senior year!

Not spotted in the video: Alice Cooper, who we found out is infiltrating The Farm, anyone from The Farm (Chad Michael Murray, where ya at?), Kevin, also with the damn Farm, and Betty’s real brother, Chic, who was introduced in the finale as an FBI agent working with Alice to take down The Farm.

Riverdale’s Camila Mendes Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted

Published

Camila Mendes Instagram

Camila Mendes is a survivor.

The Riverdale star graced the October issue of Women’s Health where she came forward as a survivor of sexual assault.

Mendes revealed that she was slipped a date rape drug known as a “roofie” while she was a freshman at New York’s University Tisch School of the Arts.

Mendes became visibly emotional while recalling the attack, but she didn’t disclose any details about her attacker or what happened.

This isn’t the first Riverdale star to speak up about sexual assault and harassment.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Mendes’ co-star, Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper on the hit series) took to Tumblr to reveal that a “significantly older” male co-worker tried to force himself on her while they were on a date.

She was a teenager at the time.

During the interview, Mendes also dished about how moving frequently before the age of 18 was a traumatic experience for her growing up.

She said she moves almost 12 times due to her parents’ divorce and her dad’s career.

“You’re constantly saying goodbye to people, and you’re constantly being removed from your identity. When you start to feel like you’re connecting with a group of people, an environment, and a home — a physical home— it can be destabilizing when you’re uprooted and taken somewhere else,” she said.

Nowadays, Mendes loves to follow a routine that includes staying at the same hotels when she travels, visiting familiar cafes and yoga studios.

She also opened up about living with an eating disorder.
