In: Donovan, TV Shows
kocktails-with-khloe

Khloe Kardashian is the only sister I can somewhat handle among the main Kardashian girls. She seems the least uptight and the most fun to hang out with. The 31-year-old reality star just announced a new show and surprisingly, it’s not airing on E! Get ready to pop that Kristal. Oops, I meant Cristal ;)

FYI Network, a division of A+E Networks, announced it’s greenlit a new talk show hosted by the Kardashian star. Aptly titled, Kocktails with Khloe, the primetime show is described as a “hybrid talk series.” It’ll feature regular celebrity guests and friends dropping by her kitchen for intimate dinner parties “filled with cooking, pop culture, conversation and outrageously fun party games.”

Not only is Khloe hosting it, she’ll also executive produce it as well. Hopefully, her foray into talk will last longer than her mother’s attempt. Kris Jenner’s daytime show Kris only lasted six weeks back in 2013 on FOX. Kocktails With Khloe is set to debut later this year. Read Khloe’s official statement below.

Lean On” recently hit a peak of No. 9 on the latest Billboard Hot 100. Even though it’s still climbing the chart, that isn’t stopping Major Lazer from dropping another summer-ready track.

The electronic music group which includes Diplo once again taps Danish singer . Clearly, she’s their muse. Why wouldn’t she? They have great chemistry and it appears they have another winner on their hands.

For their latest collaboration, they take on Frank Ocean’s “Lost.” Their cover transforms the funky track into a reggae-pop radio-friendly tune. It’s perfect to listen to while sipping on some umbrella-decorated drink.

I could easily see this being another hit for them. Hopefully, the accompanying visual is as eye-catching as their Bollywood-inspired “Lean On Me” video. Give the track a listen below.

before-we-go-trailer

Chris Evans made it no secret of his aspirations to step behind the camera. With The Avengers movies and standalone Captain America franchise dominating his time, the 34-year-old has very little downtime to film much else. Naturally, during his break from playing superhero, Evans chose a project where he can take a stab in the director’s chair.

Before We Go is a romantic film where Evans plays double duty. Not only does he star in it but he also makes his directorial debut. He plays a man who Alice Eve meets in New York City. On the way to catch her train to Boston, she is robbed and finds herself lost in the dark underbelly of New York at night with nothing and no one. I wouldn’t mind being lost in the Big Apple if it gets me a chance meeting with Chris ;)

Before We Go is available On Demand right now. Emma Fitzpatrick, Mark Kassen and Daniel Spink round out the cast. Check out the trailer below.

2015-vmas-nominations

Without a doubt, Taylor Swift dominated the past year. It’s no surprise that MTV bestowed the 25-year-old singer with a showering of VMA nominations. Swift leads the pack with a whopping nine nominations. For me, it’s shocking that her “Bad Blood” visual scored more nods than her much superior “Blank Space” video, including Video of the Year. Love “Blank Space.”

Taylor faces off against Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars (“Uptown Funk”), Kendrick Lamar (“Alright”), Ed Sheeran (“Thinking Out Loud”) and Beyonce (“7/11″) for the big prize. Speaking of Sheeran and Queen Bey, they also snatched a sizeable amount of nominations- six and five respectively.

The 2015 MTV VMA nomination unveiling comes on the heels that Miley Cyrus is hosting this year’s festivities. Be sure to watch the show on August 20 on MTV. Like always, I’m sure the irreverent awards show will provide some watercooler chatter material, especially with Cyrus hosting. Check out the full nominations list below.

icona-pop-first-time

This past Friday, I attended the One Direction concert here in Vancouver where Icona Pop was the opening act. They were actually my favorite part of the whole show thanks to their catchy up beat tunes and high energy performance. This was my second time seeing them perform, as I had seen them perform their breakout hit, “I Don’t Care (I Love It)” at White Party a couple years ago and got to meet them backstage!

Following the recent release of their “Emergency” single and music video, they’ve just released another fun new track called “First Time”. This was actually the first track the duo ever wrote together when they first met back in 2012. It wasn’t until recently when they entered the studio with Ricky Reed that they decided to dust it off and give it a new lease on life. “It’s such a special song to us and really is a celebration of friendship, whether with your boyfriend or girlfriend or best friend. We just wanted to capture that feeling again in a song and remind ourselves how important it is to never forget those special early days when you first meet someone,” explains Caroline Hjelt.

Listen to the new track below.

lessons-in-lexicology-transgender

In case you didn’t know, Funny or Die’s primary mandate is not to make you laugh, but rather to educate you. LOL. Obviously, I’m kidding.

The Emmy-winning comedy video website takes a humorous approach to educate an uninformed cisgender couple on how to avoid terminological transgressions when discussing Caitlyn Jenner. Honestly, for those who aren’t experts, it’s easy to make a misstep and unintentionally offend.

Take a lesson below in lexicology facilitated by Mad Men‘s Jared Harris.
