ariana-grande-nicki-minaj-macy-gray-duets

We’re only a couple of days away til Dangerous Woman drops.To promote its release, Ariana Grande has been extremely generous previewing tracks off her third studio LP. Just in case you’ve missed a few of them, I’ve embedded three of my favorites.

The 22-year-old has teamed up with Nicki Minaj a couple of times previously, most notably for the smash hit “Bang Bang.” They reunite for a reggae-influenced number, titled “Side By Side,” that has massive potential. Her sugary vocals work well with the rapper’s spicy rhymes.

Speaking of opposites, Ariana’s collaboration with Macy Gray is exactly that. These two couldn’t be any more different but Macy’s husky tones are a perfect complement to Ariana’s silky runs. Fingers crossed “Leave Me Lonely” gets an official release. I’d love to see this duo co-star in a clip.

If there’s a track that is guaranteed to get an official release, it’s “Greedy.” This one is extremely catchy with its infectious funky beat. Give it and the other two a listen below.

kesha-billboard-music-awards

Since Zedd and Kesha were allowed to officially release their collaboration “True Colors,” I thought things were cooling down between Kesha Rose and her label. It appears that’s not the case.

The Billboard Music Awards just released a statement revealing Kesha won’t be able to perform this Sunday due to her ongoing legal battle. Reportedly, she was given written confirmation from Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Records but later, the permission was rescinded. Read Billboard’s statement below.

hbo-looking-movie

HBO network president Michael Lombardo is a man of his word. When he canceled Looking after two short seasons, he cushioned the blow to fans by promising a wrap-up movie to tie up loose ends. The network just revealed when Jonathan Groff and company will return.

Looking: The Movie will air Saturday, July 23. Ahead of that, the film will premiere, fittingly enough, at the Frameline Film Festival, taking place in San Francisco from June 16-26, where it will close the festival. Read below to find out what we can expect.

Kristen Stewart Is Haunted In ‘Personal Shopper’

In: Donovan, Movies
kristen-stewart-personal-shopper

The last time Kristen Stewart teamed up with Olivier Assayas, she received wide praise for her stunning work in Clouds of Sils Maria. The 26-year-old became the first American actress to win a César Award. She was also in contention to score an Oscar nomination, but fell short. Naturally, expectations are high for her new collaboration with the French director.

Based on early reports, the film wasn’t very well received during its premiere at Cannes. To be fair, the premise seems a little odd. It’s a ghost story taking place in the fashion underworld of Paris. Stewart plays a personal shopper who hates her job and finds herself being haunted by a ghost who she believes is her late twin brother.

During a press conference, both Stewart and Assayas responded to rumors the film received an adverse reaction. “Hey, everyone did not boo,” Stewart joked. Assayas chimed in with “When you come to Cannes, you’re prepared for anything,” adding “people have expectations of a film and then the film is something else.”

Personal Shopper has no release date in the US as of yet. Check out the first trailer below.

justin-timberlake-cant-stop-the-feeling-video

Not really sure why Justin Timberlake released another music video for “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” Perhaps, his team thought it would be a good idea to help buoy the single’s streaming numbers. Not that it needed the help. The song is already a smash hit. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Like the previous clip, this one features people getting their groove on to the catchy track. However, this time around most of the people dancing are random folks and not celebrities lending their voices for the Dreamworks animated film, Trolls.

Personally, I like the star-studded version much better. If you love, however, watching JT eat at a diner, grocery shop and dance with strangers, then the Mark Romanek-directed clip is for you. Watch it below.

fox-2016-17-upfronts

With regards to new programming, FOX has three comedies, six dramas, two event series and two reality series on deck. However, like NBC, it’s only launching a small number of shows in the fall and saving most of it for midseason. I suppose it makes sense since American Idol‘s departure left a gaping hole in the spring.

Again, like the peacock network, most of the ones I’m most looking forward to won’t premiere until 2017. Why are the television gods punishing me?

Everything old is new again on FOX. The network resurrects Prison Break and 24 while delivering new adaptations of familiar titles like The Exorcist, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Lethal Weapon. Among those, Prison Break is the one I’m most excited for. Love me some Wentworth Miller.

The new titles that pique my interest the most include the Empire spinoff, Star, A.P.B., Pitch and Shots Fired. Check out the trailers below along with FOX’s new schedule.

nick-jonas-demi-lovato-carpool-karaoke

Nick Jonas in the backseat of an SUV. Talk about a fantasy come true. The things I would do 😉

The 23-year-old singer and Demi Lovato are the latest passengers to hitch a ride with James Corden for a round of Carpool Karaoke. “Heart Attack,” “Stone Cold” and “Confident” from Lovato’s catalog were played while Jonas’ “Chains,” “Jealous” and “Close” were also heard. Nick’s big bro’s “Cake By The Ocean” got a little love as well.

As entertaining as all the singing was, the best part was when Demi teased Nick about dating Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez back and forth several times years ago. You might also enjoy listening to Nick talk about being tied up.

Check out the video below which also features the trio try their hand at busking. I’m curious to know how much money they collected.
