alex-and-sierra-its-about-us

Not loving Alex & Sierra’s debut single “Scarecrow?” Truthfully, it’s alright, but since I adore the X Factor act so much, I’ve supported it.

Little Did You Know,” on the other hand is simply sensational. The stripped-down ballad is pure money and absolutely everything you loved about the duo on the FOX show. It reminds me a lot of their “Say Something” performance. Sierra’s vocals are heavenly while Alex’s sexy rasp perfectly contrast and complement his love’s voice.

I can see why Columbia Records chose “Scarecrow” as the act’s debut single. It’s uptempo and has that pop-folk thing that’s really hot these days. Sadly, the lead cut isn’t doing much damage on the charts or on radio.

Hopefully, “Little Did You Know” gets an official release complete with an accompanying video. Right now, it appears it might be just a buzz single. If you pre-order their forthcoming album, It’s About Us out October 7, “Little Did I Know” will download instantly. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Bravo Previews Its First Scripted Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girlfriends-guide-to-divorce

For once, Bravo is airing a show featuring a group of women not fighting. Has hell frozen over? Watch out Housewives, there’s a new group of women vying to become Andy Cohen’s favorite bitches.

For the first time in years, the network launches a scripted series. Based on the best-selling Girlfriends’ Guides book series by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce stars Lisa Edelstein as a self-help author in her 40s embarking on a divorce from her husband (Paul Adelstein). She relies on her friends played by Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett to transition to this new phase of her life.

“When we saw Girlfriends’ Guide, we said this is the thing we’ve been waiting for,” explains development exec Lara Spotts. “Marti Noxon is such a fantastic writer, and her script was so funny and so real. She writes from such a place of truth that it felt like something very much in the zeitgeist. It’s hilarious, it’s set in a very Bravo-feeling world…it really checked so many of the boxes that we were looking for.”

Bravo ordered 13 episodes for the series’ first season. Carrie Fisher and Laverne Cox have been tapped to make guest appearances in future episodes. Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is set to debut on December 2 at 10 pm. Marti Noxon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) developed the series and wrote the pilot episode. Check out the trailer below.

brandy-magic-coldplay-cover

Who knew Brandy was such a Coldplay fan? The 35-year-old singer gives the band’s track, “Magic,” a soulful R&B makeover. The result is something truly, excuse the pun, magical.

I forgot how gifted a vocalist the former Moesha actress is. It’s clear, Brandy took this song cover seriously given that she took the time to record a studio version. Hopefully, this is a sign of new music to come from Brandy.

If a new album is on the way, it’s probably going to be on the independent front. Brandy’s last studio album, Two Eleven, performed so abysmally, both Epic Records and RCA dropped her from their respective rosters. Girl needs to deliver a hit LP and make her former bosses regret ever doubting her ability for a comeback. She’s too good to just give up. Brandy FTW. Give her cover of “Magic” a listen below.

Archie Dies Saving His Gay Friend Kevin Keller

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!
archie-comics-death

R.I.P. Archie Andrews. Everyone’s favorite redheaded teenager is dunzo. At least in the comic book series, Life With Archie, set in an alternate universe he is. The series depicts possible futures for Riverdale’s characters. In the penultimate issue, Archie dies in heroic fashion.

Issue #36 which hits newsstands Wednesday, Archie is gunned down while trying to stop an assassination attempt on his friend, Kevin Keller. The openly-gay character who is a military veteran is now a senator in favor of gun control.

Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater said his death is meant to “epitomize not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us,” and that he hopes that it works as “a lesson about gun violence and a declaration of diversity in the new age of Archie Comics.”

ting-tings-wrong-club

The Ting Tings burst on the scene with their be wicked debut, We Started Nothing back in 2008. That album spawned numerous hits including “”That’s Not My Name,”"Great DJ” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go.” The English band returned a couple years later but with a less successful effort even though scoring a moderate hit with “Hands.” They’re back and better than ever with the lead cut off their forthcoming third studio album, Super Critical.

Ditching their indie rock pop vibe, the Ting Tings have opted for a more commercial disco sound. The dance funk “Wrong Club” is sensational. I immediately loved it after hearing it once. For the accompanying visual, frontwoman Katie White dances solo in an abandoned warehouse in Paris with spotlights flashing around her. The Lisa Paclet-directed video is very reminiscent of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” video. Check out the video below.

The CW’s decision to only air America’s Next Top Model once a year was a wise one. I actually miss all of Tyra Banks’ “insightful and sage” advice to aspiring models. Dare I say, I also miss her ridiculous terms she invents.

On August 22, all the fashion action returns. Smartly, the show opted for a second cycle of “Guys and Girls.” Last season, not only provided lots of drama but plenty of male eye candy. This year’s crop doesn’t disappoint.

After sitting out for two cycles, popular judge, J. Alexander, returns to the panel, taking over a departing Rob Evans. Photographer Yu Tsai replaces Johnny Wujeck during the shoots. Though I love Wujeck, the creative quotient of the shoots since Jay Manuel left, haven’t been as fantastic. This year’s international destination is Seoul, South Korea. Check out the promo touting J. Alexander’s homecoming below.
