Tinashe’s Superlove Is Super Sensational

Tinashe is back and thank God!!! I love the 23-year-old singer and feel she’s just on the cusp of breaking through. Definitely underrated.

Produced by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, “Superlove” is reportedly the new lead single from her anticipated, and long-delayed, second album, which BTW is no longer called Joyride. I suppose her team wants to start from scratch after “Player” featuring Chris Brown bombed, despite being fantastic.

Though the cover art is serving up some 80s realness, the track sounds more early 00s. It sounds like something Ciara would’ve released during her “Goodies” era. Fingers crossed this gets some radio support. Give the sensational bop a listen below.

2016 Emmy Nominations: The Surprises & The Snubs

2016-emmy-nominations

The 2016 Emmy Awards nominations have been announced and boy are they interesting. Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham revealed the big categories during a live stream event earlier today.

Game of Thrones leads the pack with 23 nominations, the most among any shows. The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, which was expected to do well, wasn’t too far behind with 22. Fargo was the third most nominated drama with 18. Over on the comedy side, Veep reigned supreme with 17.

The nods that pleased me the most were for The Americans. The spy drama finally got some love as did its leading actors, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Both are first time nominees.

Speaking of which, Aziz Ansari (Master of None), Constance Zimmer (UnReal), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), Rami Malek (Mr. Robot), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Kristen Dunst (Fargo) and American Crime Story’s Courtney B. Vance and Cuba Gooding Jr. are just a few who are first time nominees. RuPaul, also an Emmy virgin, finally scored a hosting nomination for Drag Race, after eight seasons. Con-drag-ulation!!!

With regards to snubs, there was plenty to talk about. The most notable being Lady Gaga not being recognized for American Horror Story: Hotel. The anthology was also snub for Best Limited Series. Uzo Aduba, who won last year for Orange Is The New Black, was also missing from the list. The Good Wife which has been an Emmys darling during its run failed to get any love for its last season. Others not invited to the party were Carrie Coon (The Leftovers), Starz’ Outlander, Lena Dunham and Girls to name a few.

It’s also worth noting that 21 non-white actors were nominated in the acting categories. Definitely, no #oscarssowhite situation here.

Check out all the nominees below. The 2016 Emmy Awards are set to air on Sunday, September 18, 2016, at 8pm EST. This year the show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Without a doubt, the numerous filters are the best thing about Snapchat. Who doesn’t love seeing themselves as a puppy, monster, flower child or drag queen? Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon put the app’s different lenses to use for an adorable duet on Grande’s “Into You.”

Speaking of the track, why this song hasn’t cracked the Top 40 yet is insane. It’s much better than “Dangerous Woman” and my favorite pop song this summer, so far. Maybe this little stunt might propel it higher on the chart.

Give the cute Snapchat clip a view below. It includes one very creepy face swap. Does anyone’s face ever look good on someone’s head?

kathy-bates-disjointed

Did Chuck Lorre and CBS have a falling out? It’s a little odd that his next comedy isn’t airing on the eye network. After all, CBS and Lorre have a long successful history with Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, The Big Bang Theory and Mom. I’m thinking his new show’s premise, rather than behind-the-scenes friction, is probably why CBS shied away.

Netflix has greenlit Disjointed, starring Oscar winner Kathy Bates. The half-hour multi-camera comedy will be set at a marijuana workplace. Reportedly, it secured a straight-to-series order for 20 half-hour episodes. Continue below to read the show’s official description.

When “Good Girls” was chosen as the official theme song for the Ghostbusters reboot, I was taken aback. While tapping Elle King for the gig made sense, given the all-female cast, I was surprised Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott’s cover of the Ray Parker Jr’s classic wasn’t chosen as the lead cut. When I heard the new rendition of “Ghostbusters,” I finally understood why. It’s one hot mess.

After listening to “Good Girls” a couple more times, it’s grown on me. I love the raspy tone of the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer. The accompanying visual, directed by Dano Cerny, also does well to sell the track. While partying it up at a local bar, King grabs a proton pack and captures a couple of ghosts herself. Check out the fun clip below.

After the commercial disappointment that was Britney Jean, I have a feeling Britney Spears will rebound big time with her new album. At least that’s my prediction after checking out her latest fragrance commercial featuring a new song titled “Private Show.”

“‘Private Show’ is inevitably a sexy song and it promotes feeling sexy and girls feeling alive and I think that’s fun for girls,” Britney told Entertainment Tonight. “I think the scent definitely has a combination of all those things.”

And sexy it is. The 34-year-old superstar is absolutely sizzling in the clip. Dare I say, she’s never looked better, even during her Oops era. Whatever she’s doing, keep on, keeping on. It’s working ten fold.

Checking out her smoking new ad below. It sorta reminds me of Beyonce’s underrated “Dance For You” music video.

July 13, 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the release of Legally Blonde in theaters. Where did the time go? It honestly feels just like yesterday when Elle Woods headed to Harvard with her adorable pup, Bruiser.

To celebrate the anniversary, Reese Witherspoon teamed up with Instagram to revisit her signature move from the comedy. Watch her “Bend and Snap” instructional video. It’ll definitely put a smile on your face.

If you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift had a hand in writing Calvin Harris’ latest smash hit featuring Rihanna. After TMZ speculated Swift’s involvement with “This Is What You Came For,” the “Black Space” singer’s team confirmed she used the pen name of Nils Sjöberg in the songwriting credits.

Based on a series of tweets, it’s clear Harris isn’t happy that all this surfaced. The Scottish DJ took to Twitter to share his side of the story. Read all the juicy details below. Let’s just say, there is no love lost on Calvin’s end.
